✨✧ Michel Sardaby Quintet with Ralph MooreStraight On (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Sound Hills (Japan), 1992. Used ... $11.99
One of the few albums by pianist Michel Sardaby to feature a non-trio lineup – a great live quintet date, recorded with Ralph Moore on tenor sax and Louis Smith on trumpet! There's a richness here that's really wonderful – kind of an extension of the already great promise of Sardaby's trio work, fleshed out to even more soulful dimensions through the work of the added horn players. The vibe's a lot like some of Moore's great 80s albums for the Landmark label – although possibly even hipper – and the rest of the combo is great too, with Peter Washington on bass and Tony Reedus on drums. Titles include "Ballad For Roni", "Feliz", "Down At Dawn", "Settin The Pace", and "Blissfull Breeze". CD

Nobukazu TakemuraChild's View - Remix (German pressing) ... CD
Idyllic/99 Records (Germany), 1996. Used ... $9.99
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

Air10,000 Hz Legend (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 34.98
A great early 00s effort from Air – bravely moving towards a deeper, trippier sound! For 10,000 Hz Legend, they wisely don't try to replicate the comparably effervescent vibe of their late 90s classic Moon Safari. On some level, they're still working with some of moodier textures of their work on the Virgin Suicides soundtrack, particularly in the warm, but slightly eerie melodies, but there's a much more expansive vibe here. They're still recognizable as sensual, electronics embracing avant pop composers of Moon Safari, but there's a lot more deftly layered influences here, from prog, to psych, to disco – and it's a great beginning-to-end listen. Includes "Electronic Performers", "How Does It Make You Feel", "Radio #1", "The Vagabond", "Radian", "Sex Born Poison", "People In The City", "Don't Be Light", "Caramel Prisoner" and more.

AirTalkie Walkie (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Atmospheric electronic pop from Air – one that really steps up the spacier avant pop touches, after some of more ethereal, almost symphonic touches on both their proper albums and soundtrack work in the preceding few years. Lots of trippy electronic touches on this one, but still with the delicate vocals and layered bits of guitar and other strings, for a nice blend of sounds. Solid work from the always adventurous duo. Includes "Venus", "Cherry Blossom Girl", "Run", "Universal Traveler", "Mike Mills", "Surfing On A Rocker", "Another Day", "Alpha Beta Gaga", "Biological" and "Alone In Kyoto". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniLa Terrificante Notte Del Demonio ... CD
GDM/Octave (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $21.99
Demonic sounds, but surprisingly sweet as well – done with this easy-flowing style that's really wonderful – and much more similar to the seductive sound library work of Alessandro Alessandroni, than to some of the starker, darker horror of the time! There's definitely some spooky passages, but they're almost always warmed up in really nice ways – both with keyboards, and with these wordless vocals from the lovely Giulia De Mutiis, who drifts through the record like some sexy ghost. Her vocals almost give the whole thing a more dream-like feel at times – not too atmospheric, but with clouds of sweet sounds that blow through the space in a wonderful way. CD features 14 tracks in all – including "Demon Night II", "Demon Arise", "Dark Dreamer", "Devil's Nightmare", and "Erotic Demon". CD

Alessandro AlessandroniSangue Di Sbirro ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated level that's almost better than more familiar work of the genre – often strongly focused on the core rhythms, which are lean and plenty darn funky – bad-stepping with instrumentation that's often small combo funky jazz more than it is the bigger orchestrations of American cop scores. Titles include "Cop's Blood", "Amusement", "Duke Soul Jazz", "Tema Di Susie", "Club Jazz", "Palance", "Knell", "Sbirro In Fuga", and "Luxury". CD

Aloe BlaccShine Through ... CD
Stones Throw, 2006. Used ... $4.99
A batch of eclectic postmodern soul that's as original and instantly gratifying as anything we've heard on Stones Throw! Aloe Blacc more than lives up to the expectations we had for him after hearing his first couple of Stones Throw singles. His previous work in the adventurous hip hop outfit Emanon really only hints at his solo work – and it's even more bold in its idiosyncratic approach to an appealing groove! The almost entirely self-produced Shine Through (Oh No and Madlib produce one track each) is rife with an electronic sheen, touching on a bubbling psychedelic soul vibe we've never really heard before. A couple of tracks have guitar, bass, and keys that bring a more organic, but still kind of otherworldly groove – even touching on a cosmic Latin vibe on a couple of tunes! Tracks include "Whole World", a totally re-imagined take on Sam Cooke's "Long Time Coming" (produced by Oh No), "Are You Ready", "Busking", "Bailar", "Nascimento", "Dance For Life", "Patria Mia", "Shine Through", "Caged Birdsong", "Arrive", "Want Me", "One Inna" (produced by Madlib) and "I'm Beautiful".

Aloe BlaccWant Me (voc, inst)/Arrive (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2005. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A trippy, soulful surprise from Aloe Blacc – the mic side of the Cali hip hop duo Emanon – who seems poised to make the transition from Cali hip hop to progressive soul! The backdrop of "Want Me" is a deep, pulsing electronic wall of sound with slow-building effects raining down into the mix – with Aloe in romantic dancefloor croon mode leading the way! "Arrive" is a similar number, with some heavy reverb on the electronic/synth elements – and crisp, percolating beats. Aloe handles the production on both tracks, making him a triple threat +one – writer/producer/rapper/singer! We're always a bit surprised at how unpredictably, yet solidly, the Stones Throw sound continues to grow! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ata KakObaa Sima ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1994. New Copy ... $12.99 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

✨✧ Ataraxia (Mort Garson)Unexplained – Electronic Musical Impressions of the Occult ... LP
RCA/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the spookiest albums we've ever heard from moog maestro Mort Garson – way darker and more complex than his Wozzard Of Id or moogy horoscope projects – with a feel that's much more like his legendary Black Mass album! Like that one, there's a fair current of supernatural running through the mix – an early use of the electronics to explore the darker corners of reality, served up with lots of cool 70s occult touches – in a way that's oddly more timeless than some of the later projects of this nature from the industrial generation. Garson's range of tones is wonderful – from fuzzy bassy bits, to sparkling keyboard lines, to lots of spacey sounds in between – and titles include "I Ching", "Tarot", "Deja Vu", "Seance", "Sorcerer", and "Astral Projection".

AzymuthAzimuth (Linha Do Horizonte) ... CD
Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's a bit more abstract as well – using some noisier electronics amidst the smoother ones, to create a style that's somewhere between fusion, electric funk, and some of the more soaring Brazilian rhythms of the post-bossa years! The keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami are worth the price of admission alone – and include Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – plus bits of Hammond organ too! There's more than a few great breaks and samples on the set – and titles include "Brazil", "Caca De Conta", "Melo Dos Dois Bicudos", "Manha", "Periscopio", and "Montreal City". CD

BallisterWorse For The Wear ... CD
Aerophonic, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
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".

John Barry/Shirley BasseyMoonraker ... LP
United Artists, 1979. Very Good- ... $4.99
Bond goes into space, but Barry stays on the ground – in one of the lesser-remembered James Bond soundtracks of the 70s! The film followed on the Star Wars boom, and had lots of space effects, but Barry keeps things mostly orchestral here – not going for the electronics or sound effects you might think. Shirley Bassey sings 2 versions of the "Moonraker" theme – one straight and one disco – and titles include "Bond Smells A Rat", "Bond Lured To Pyramid", "Bond Arrives In Rio", "Flight Into Space", and "Space Lazer Battle".

BatidaDois ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
The second album from Batida, and even more crackling than the first – bristling beats, bubbling electronics, and a strongly Brazilian undercurrent – all blended together in the best contemporary styles we've been hearing from the Soundway label of late! Vocals are by a shifting lineup of singers, but there's a core sound that always holds fast – thanks to creative production from Pedro Coquenao, who mixes favela-styled elements with a more thoughtful, intellectual approach that almost reminds us of the late Trama Records at their best. Things are nicely skittish overall – and titles include "Luxo", "Bantu", "Cooking Ugali", "Fica Atento", "La Vai Maria", "Chat With Mr Ochieng", and "Ceu". CD

Han Bennink & Sabu ToyozumiDada – Solo & Duo ... CD
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $23.99
A pair of percussionists, working here together wonderfully – in a set that has both musicians using the drum kit and other percussion – and Han Bennink picking up a bit of piano as well! We've always loved Bennink's highly melodic approach – a style that seems to get notes out of things that shouldn't normally feel so tuneful – and his method makes for surprising moments of music amidst the freedom, which really seem to be echoed by Sabu as well! The set begins with one long solo from Han – on drums, percussion, and piano – which is then followed by this beautifully bold solo from Sabu – and the pair come together on the last track, with a really magical feel of synchronicity. Titles include "Han's Solo", "Sabu's Solo", and "Dadakko". CD

✨✧ John BerberianExpressions East ... LP
Mainstream, Early 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
Rhythmic early 60s global grooves from John Berberian – a master of the oud with a great group of players on these oft intense takes traditional Turkish, Armenian and Arabic songs! The melodies and rhythms are pretty impressive – the percussion is particularly heavy and groovy! The oud is out front and supported by lots of clarinet and bongo, hand percussion, guitar, bass and some vocals, too! There's a passion here that easily trumps any initial thoughts that this would be a dry reading of middle-eastern folk material – it's appealing in many of the ways that Salah Ragab's Egyptian jazz material is, without the cosmic funkiness. Players include Souren Baronian on clarinet and bongos, Jack Chalikian on canun, John Valentine on guitar and dudoog, among others. Tracks include "Siseler", "Laz", "Basha Bella", "Whyek", "Taksim", and "Nubar Nubar". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black HeatNo Time To Burn ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $8.99
A stone classic from Black Heat – the group's second album, and even tighter than their first! The group's size has dropped a bit between albums – but that only helps them cook even more – dropping a bit of the horn section from before, which allows even more emphasis on their razor-sharp rhythms! There's a slight hint of Afro Funk in some of the rhythms – and the keyboards cook with lots of sweet clavinet lines – mixed with a production style that features some bubbling electronic elements that remind us a lot of that crazy "magic bag" that was used by the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band. That group might be a good point of comparison, but the band also shares a lot of Kool & The Gang's ensemble funk style – especially on their cover of "Love The Life You Live" – which they burn here beautifully! Other tracks include "Super Cool", "M&M's", "Rapid Fire", "You Should Have Listened", "Times Have Changed", and "Check It All Out". CD
