Leny Andrade & Roni Ben-HurAlegria De Viver ... CD
Motema, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 15.98
One of the loveliest albums in years from the legendary Leny Adrade – a set that pairs her amazing vocals with sweet guitar lines from Roni Ben-Hur! The set is very spare – just guitar and vocals – but Leny rises to the occasion wonderfully, and gives her voice this wonderful sense of inflection that really gets at the jazziest side of her style – while still hanging onto all the subtle emotion she brings to the Portuguese lyrics of the tunes! Andrade's always been a hell of a singer, but sometimes the arrangements can overwhelm her presence – something that doesn't happen here at all, and which reminds us how much we love her music. Roni plays a 1969 Johnny Smith hollow-body electric, which has a great warm tone for the session – and titles include "Refem Da Solidao", "Samba Iluminado", "Estrada Branca", "O Que E Amar", "Rugas", "Passa Por Mim", "Carinhoso", and "E Preciso Perdoar".

VariousMasters At Work 10th Anniversary Collection Part 2: 1996-2000 (Definitive Remixes & Original Productions) ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 90s-Early 2000s. Used 4CD ... $17.99
Part two of this stunning collection of the work of the duo known as Masters At Work! This 4CD collection showcases MAW's amazing ability to blend a wide range of influences from house, classic disco, hip hop, and Latin into a dancefloor friendly mix that not only sounds fresh and up-to-date, but which also has a very strong respect for grooves of the past. MAW have worked with so many different artists over the past 5 years, that this collection ends up being as much a rich document of the growth of club and soul music in general, as it is a testament to their own stunning work. Like the first volume in this series, every track is a killer – and like the first, this is a overstuffed package that's got a huge amount of tracks! Titles include "To Be In Love" by India, "Divine Love" by Ultra Note, "Days Like This" by Kenny Lattimore, "The Ghetto/El Barrio" by George Benson, "MAW Expensive" by Masters At Work, "Watching Windows" by Roni Size/Reprazent, Atmosfear's "Dancing In Outer Space", "Bangin" by Kenlou 6, Monday Michiru's "Sunshine After the Rain", "Around the World" from Daft Punk, "Desire" by Nu Colors, "Are You Using Me" by Luther Vandross, "What'cha Gonna Do" by Eternal, "Spirit" by Cunnie Williams, "Recue Me" by Sunkids, Incognito's "Always There", "I Want You Back" by Mel B, and 4 tracks from Nuyorican Soul: "Mind Fluid", "You Can Do It Baby", "It's Alright, I Feel It", and "Runaway"!

✨✧ Bobby BrownDon't Be Cruel ... LP
MCA, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Breakout brilliance from Bobby Brown – the album that really showed the world he could stand on his own strongly after leaving New Edition! Given the tight production from LA & Babyface, among others, the sound here is hardly cruel – and instead, the album's got a catchily commercial groove that holds up surprisingly well – and arguably sounds a lot better these days, many years after these tunes were getting a bit too overplayed on the radio. Includes the hit singles "Don't Be Cruel" and "My Prerogative", plus "Every Little Step", "Rock Wit'cha", "Take It Slow", "All Day All Night" and "Roni". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Uni Trio (Robinson/Izenzon/Kaye)Uni Trio ... LP
Sagittarius (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare recordings from a very cool group – a late 60s New York trio that features tremendous work on clarinet from Perry Robinson – one of the few players who can blow the instrument with the same fire and fully creative energy as the avant saxophonists of the time! Perry's in wonderful form here – as brilliant on the recording as he is on his own early 60s album for Savoy Records, or on the Henry Grimes Trio date for ESP – a record that shares a lot with this one in terms of its energy, and tremendous work from Robinson! Bassist David Izenzon's also part of the group – even more openly expressive here than on his work with Ornette Coleman, and really quite a revelation – and the trio also features drums from Randy Kaye. Titles include "Raga Roni", "Children's Song", "Lullaby Of The Elements", and "Laser Beam Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nobukazu TakemuraChild's View - Remix (German pressing) ... CD
Idyllic/99 Records (Germany), 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
Remixed version of Takemura's crucial first LP! If you know the Child's View LP, you know that it's filled with beautiful jazzy grooves that feature a mixture of Brazilian, soundtrack, soul, and hip hop scoring. This remix LP pushes the groove even more, by offering junglist and abstract takes on some of the best tracks on the album – including "Searching", "For Tomorrow", "Crescent", "Lake Of Winter", and "Reflect Tomorrow". Remixes by Wagon Christ, Mad Professor, Aphex Twin, Cold Cut, and Roni Size. Very moody, very spacey, but still with all the charm of the original! CD

African Head ChargeOff The Beaten Track (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
The title and cover definitely get the vibe of the record right – as African Head Charge continue to go off the beaten track with their unique blend of sounds! In the generation before downtempo, these guys were pretty darn unique – and key forerunners in blending together rootsy elements, dubby production, and some very sweet electronics and effects, too – all in a mode that's inspired by Jamaican originals, but taken to much headier territory in the hands of Adrian Sherwood. Titles include "Off The Beaten Track", "Some Bizarre", "Belinda", "Language & Mentality", "Throw It Away", "Conspiring", "Release The Doctor", "Down Under Again", and "Over The Sky".

Jason AjemianFolklords ... LP
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
One of the trippiest albums we've heard from Delmark in recent years – a really creative session from bassist Jason Ajemian, and one that links the label's avant jazz work to some of the deeper sides of Chicago's indie scene! Ajemian is free to work without any sense of genre or convention – in a mode that still hits plenty of jazz, with key use of work by Monk, Mingus, and Sun Ra – but which really abstracts things and takes them to a whole new level – opening up cosmic territory that lives up to the album's stated request to "Please Feel Yourselves". Ajemian plays bass and some electronics, in a quartet that also features Owen Stewart Robertson on guitar and electronics, Kid Bliss on alto sax and vibrolux, and Jason Nazary on drums – the last of which are played in a very slow, spacious style. All tracks are long – and titles include "Ask Mr Blunt Now" – which features extrapolations of "Satellites Are Spinning" and "Ask Me Now" – and "Orange Is The Color Of The Sun Then Blue Sky" – which is built upon some key Charles Mingus tunes. Other titles are originals, and include "Material Girls" and "Freedom Is A Trail Of Tears". LP, Vinyl record album

Jan AkkermanTabernakel ... CD
Atco (Japan), 1973. Used ... $6.99
Guitarist Jan Akkerman bridges many worlds here – deftly stepping between spare acoustic guitar modes and some much more dynamic electric ones – but all with a sense of care and vision that really makes the record come together! The set begins with a few themes from John Dowland, updated by Akkerman, but still played with an ancient sort of vibe – one that leads into some very cool fusion moments that mix centuries-old aesthetics with the modern – creating a sense of anachronism that really keeps things interesting. Gene Orloff handled some of the larger arrangements, but the focus is always on Akkerman's deft work on the guitar – and titles include "Britannia", "House Of The King", "Javeh", "Lammy", and "A Fantasy".

Tony Allen with Afrobeat 2000NEPA – Never Expect Power Always ... LP
Celluloid/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Landmark material from the legendary Nigerian percussionist! NEPA is a great little album from Tony Allen – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a chunky groove that's very much in the style of his 70s Afro Funk work! The title track is one of Allen's best cuts ever – a really anthemic tune with a punchy hook that's as infectious as it is political – and other tracks on the set are equally nice, touched with some slight electronic bits, giving them a cool Celluloid Electric Africa vibe! Titles include the long numbers "When One Road Close" and "NEPA (Never Expect Power Always)", in regular and dub versions – plus the great closing track "Olokun". LP, Vinyl record album

Aminadav AloniOnce ... LP
Dual Planet (Australia), Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99 29.99
Weird, wild, and very electronic – an obscure soundtrack from Israeli composer Aminadav Aloni – done in a style that's halfway between the more avant American analogue experiments of the 60s, and some of the spacier European styles to come! The whole thing's a mix of moogy moments, darker keyboards, and some more brash electronic bits – and overall, the sound is never too noisy or jarring – just right at the perfect point of farther expression, before everything falls apart – maybe like Dutch electronic work from someone like Tom Dissevelt. Compelling all the way through – and with titles that include "Those Who Play", "Loss", "Found", "Out Of The Fire", and "Follow The Leader". LP, Vinyl record album

Never-heard work from the legendary team of Jon Appleton and Don Cherry – music that was recorded for the Human Music album the pair issued on Flying Dutchman – but issued here for the first time ever! The sounds here have that amazing mix of electronic and organic elements you'll know from the famous full album – oddly-shaped notes from Cherry on pocket trumpet, mixed with unusual textures and tones from Appleton on analogue electronics – very thoughtfully combined in an amazing way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ata KakObaa Sima ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1994. New Copy ... $7.99 14.98
Rare work from an artist who was born in Ghana, spent time in Germany, and recorded this underground cassette-only release in Toronto during the early 90s! The music has this very odd pan-national style that references Ata Kak's Ghanian roots, but also brings in some cool electronics that must have been picked up while in Germany, and fused with a style that's almost early electro – especially given the lean approach to rhythms and keyboards throughout! Ata Kak sings and raps a bit – the latter not entirely in a hip hop mode, more in this rhythmic and explosive style that's very unique – and the whole thing's got a wonderfully homegrown vibe that really takes us back to the cassette indie generation. Titles include "Oabaa Sima", "Daa Nyinaa", "Yemmpa Aba", "Bome Nnwom", and "Medfofo". CD

Luis BacalovA Ciascuno Il Suo/La Polizia E Al Servizio Del Cittadino? ... CD
GDM/Quartet, 1966/1973. New Copy ... $12.99
Two great Luis Bacalov soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! A Ciascuno Il Suo is a great thriller soundtrack – by one of the Italian masters of the 60s! Bacalov's score for the film mixes jazzy numbers with more suspenseful orchestral ones – but the best cuts have a jaunty groovy quality, of the sort you dig these old Italian soundtracks for! Bruno Nicolai conducted the orchestra, and the nicest cuts have choppy percussion and some good instrumental elements, like sax or organ – which stand out nicely, and help really bring a lot of flavor to the record! There's a great bossa version of the title tune – plus cuts that include "Delitto D'Onore", "Intrigo", "L'Imboscata", "Pour Reve L'Hiver", and "Sulla Spiaggia". La Polizia E Al Servizio Del Cittadino is presented in a much more expanded format than before – 13 tracks in all, really stretching out Bacalov's beautiful music for the film! Things start slow and sensitive, but proceed with lots of very cool off-beat strings, drums, and electronic bits – making for a very cool set of police themes with a very dark edge. Titles include "Di Notte Genova", "Il Killer", "Indagando", "Attesa Ossessiva", and "Un Uomo Solo Contro La Citta". CD

John BakerVendetta Tapes – Incidental Music From The 1960s BBC TV Series & Other Radiophonics ... CD
Buried Treasure (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Sublime sound cues from BBC maestro John Baker – a wonderful blend of jazzy moments and weird electronic sounds – often used together at the same time! The feel here is as hip as the hippest Brit TV of the 60s – some very righteous grooves that would have made great records on their own – mixed with moodier moments that blend together all sorts of forward-thinking elements, at a level that was hardly being done on American TV at the time – easy shifts between timings and tones that keep the whole thing moving with an incredible degree of freshness throughout – with a sound that's way way different than any sort of other television work we can think of. Some tracks have improvised tenor or flute passages, often while other weird electric bits are taking place – and there's also lots of nice work on drums and percussion, which further gives the electronics a direction! Titles include tracks from Vendetta episodes "The Sugar Man", "The Dolly Man", "Suivez La Piste", "The Widow Man", "The Caves Of Steel", and "The Ice Cream Man". CD

Rossano BaldiniLight (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
A very different set than the last album from Rossano Baldini – as the record not only bills him as playing piano, but also working on "sound design" too – which is a great way to describe the spacious, textural feel of the set! The album's still a piano jazz record, but with washes of other elements too – some effects from Pierpaolo Ranieri, who also plays bass, and unusual lines on trombone from Gianluca Petrella, and just a bit of live electronics from Michele Rabbia, who also plays percussion and drums. Many of the tunes are jazz remakes of more electronic numbers – work by Bjork, Kraftwerk, Autechre, Aphex Twin, and others – and the approach almost makes the whole record kind of feel like a This Mortal Coil approach to jazz. Titles include "Fahrenheit Fair Enough", "Noon", "Yulquen", "Das Model", "Pleasure Is All Mine", and "Psyche Rock". CD

BallisterWorse For The Wear ... CD
Aerophonic, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99
The Ballister trio is hardly worse for the wear this time around – and instead, the group seem to have a new sort of fire, and one that has them sounding even bolder than ever! Dave Rempis is searing on alto, tenor, and baritone sax – playing at times with a style that makes us wonder if he's ever coming up for air – while Paal Nilssen-Love demonstrates once again that he's one of the true powerhouses in free jazz drumming, with an incredible command on the kit throughout! Fred Lonberg Holm plays both cello and electronics, both used in ways that shade in the music with some crucial colors that make the whole thing way more than just a bombastic expression of freedom – and the album's three long tracks are titled "Fornax", "Scutum", and "Vulpecula".

✨✧ Franco BattiatoPollution ... CD
Water, 1973. Used ... $8.99
One of the greatest early efforts on in the career of Italian experimentalist Franco Battiato! Pollution finds Battiato operating in a mode that's more direct than some of his later work – crafting an extended testament on pollution – performed on voice, guitar, and electronics, with the help of a small ensemble. It's very chilling stuff – with elements that blend lightly symphonic moments with jarring rock and off-kilter bits. A landmark in 70s experimental groove! Titles include "Il Silenzio Del Rumore", "31 Dicembre 1999 – Ore 9", "Beta", "Plancton", "Pollution", and "Areknames". CD

Incredibly obscure sounds from the German electronic scene of the 70s – the only recording ever made by the duo of Wolfgang Baumann and Ata Koek – done at the legendary studio of Conny Plank, and only ever issued on a handful of quickly-lost, self-pressed copies! The sounds here remind us a lot more of the darker moments of the early 70s German scene than the lighter, more spacious material at the time of the recording – layers of electronics that ebb and flow together beautifully, creating these moody melodies out of their deeper textures as they shift together – building up their own sort of energy, with a vibe that's more in the early Brain level of experimentation than later work from Tangerine Dream and some of the bigger groups. Titles include "Where", "Gamabol", "Yarabbim", "TD Mem", and "Sequencerroll". LP, Vinyl record album

Mark BinelliDetroit City Is The Place To Be – The Aftermath Of An American Metropolis (hardcover) ... Book
Metropolitan, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 28.00
A fascinating look at this great American city – a powerhouse of production in the middle 20th Century, and one of the bigger urban quandaries in the years that followed – all captured with care and complexity by author Mark Binelli! The approach here is less lachrymose than you might expect – as the positive (although slightly ironic) tone of the title is echoed in Binelli's sympathy for the changes and struggles Detroit has experienced – and its ability to keep coming back in differing ways to find a path forward. There's a great grass roots style to most of the writing – personal, on the ground accounts of the city and key moments – and among the small genre of city narratives, this is certainly one of the best books we've come across. Over 300 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book
(Please Note – Spine has a remainder mark.)
