✨✧ Leny Andrade & Roni Ben-HurAlegria De Viver ... CD
Motema, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

Uni Trio (Robinson/Izenzon/Kaye)Uni Trio ... LP
Sagittarius (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... $15.99
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

✨✧ 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"!

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

Alessandro AlessandroniInchiesta (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CMT/Cometa (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99
A sweet funky set from the 70s – originally recorded as a sound library session, but handled by Italian soundtrack maestro Alessandro Alessandroni! You might know Alessandroni's music best from the 60s, and this set is a later updating of the same groove – one that brings in a bit more electric keyboards, some bouncier basslines, and drums that snap nice and hard on the funky numbers – then lay back on the sweet mellow moments. A few cuts have vocals – ala I Cantorni Moderni – and the whole thing has a warm, sexy 70s groove that's right up there with the best Italian work of the scene from the time. Titles include "Femminismo", "Collettivo", "La Metropoli", "Pubblica Informazione", "Prima Eta", and "Ultimo Soggiorno". Very groovy stuff! CD features 5 bonus tracks too – never issued before! CD

Alessandro AlessandroniPanoramic Feeling + Le Film Trouve – A Panoramic Experience (clear vinyl pressing with bonus DVD) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy LP & DVD ... $32.99
A beautiful sound library gem from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – recorded for the commercial Flipper label, and issued publicly here for the first time ever! The music is sublime – that side of Alessandroni that came closest to the bossa and vocal styles of Ennio Morricone in the late 60s – with lots of breezy rhythms at the bottom, and a blend of instrumental passages, wordless chorus lines from I Cantori Moderni, and even some of that famous whistling from Alessandroni himself! We especially love the chorus bits – as they almost feel like The Swingle Singers trying to follow an Edda Dell'Orso sort of pathy – blended here with cool keyboards, including some totally wonderful electric harpsichord! Titles include "Young Flirt", "Green Hills", "North Wind", "Car Drive", "White Sands", and "Love Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the DVD "Le Film Trouve – A Panoramic Experience" – featuring footage from amateur films from around the world!)

Alessandro AlessandroniPrisma Sonora ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A dream of a record from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – an obscure sound library set, but one that we'd rank right up there with our favorite Italian soundtrack classics of the time! Alessandroni's going for a very Morricone-like feel here – lots of spacious rhythms, isolated instruments, and a feel that's watery, but never sleepy – kind of a liquid groove that's really beautiful throughout! Instruments are nice and compressed – way down in the rhythms, and stepping along with a La Donna Invisible quality that's really sublime – just a few electric touches, but mostly acoustic, and with an equal sense of grace and groove. Titles include "Dialoghi D'Amore", "Punti Di Vista", "Breve Dialettica", "Vocali Sul Pentagramma", and "Aspetti Musicali". CD

Laurindo AlmeidaClassical Current – Electronic Excursions ... LP
Warner, 1969. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A wonderful record from guitarist Laurindo Almeida – way way better than the title might make you think, and quite different from his albums for Capitol! The album is subtitled "electronic excursions", and while it's not exactly electronic, it does feature Almeida soloing over some nicely groovy backings that drift along in a very spacious way. There's a bit of keyboards in the mix somewhere, lots of strings, and some airy grooves that make the album dance in a magical way that most of Almeida's work does not. Arrangements are by Larry Cansler, Pete King, and Lex De Azevedo (David Axelrod?) – and titles include "The Lamp Is Low", "Till The End Of Time", "Full Moon & Empty Arms", "Moon Love", and "When I Write My Song".

✨✧ AloaAloa ... LP
Medical, 1982. Near Mint- (reissue)... $14.99
Not a Hawaiian band, as you might think from misreading the title – but a very cool early 80s German electronic duo – one with an equally great ear for tuneful melodies and darker moments! The music here rivals the best of the German new wave of the time – and shares that scene's style of winnowing down all the best keyboard and electronic moments of the prog years into a much leaner, meaner sound – often with playful little touches, and some starker rhythm passages that preface later years of Euro dance – but without any of its cliches. Titles include "Banane Zitrone", "Duetsche Begegnung", "Traumfrau", "Wiesser Wal", "Flamingos", and 'Hostessendienst". LP, Vinyl record album

Rica AmabisSambadelic ... CD
YB Music/Sterns, 2004. Used ... $5.99
Older samba tunes, remade and remixed – in a style that recalls the approach of some of the bossa remix work in recent years! The album uses lots of core bits from older recordings – interspersed with some nice electronic touches and effects – and given the organic joy of most samba recordings, it's kind of amazing how dark and brooding this set can sometimes feel. Titles include "Mulata Assanhada", "Samba Tal Samba", "Marcio Leonardo E Telmo", "Vozes Da Seca", "Esquema Freestyle", "Uba", "Noel", and "Drum N Sambass". CD

Horace AndyIn The Light (plus In The Light Dub) ... CD
Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Horace Andy's holding an acoustic guitar on the cover, but the record's got some searing electric lines in the mix – really bringing this sharp edge to the already-great rhythms behind Andy's famous vocals! Horace is one of the few cats who can sing in the higher end of the vocal register, yet still come across with a totally badass vibe – thanks partly to the righteous message in his lyrics, and the hip-tripping grooves on the tracks – which could make just about any element sound great, and only reinforce the greatness of the Horace Andy style! The album's a stone classic, and for good reason – and titles include "Leave Rasta", "Do You Love My Music", "Hey There Woman", "Government Land", "Problems", "In The Light", and "Collie Herb". CD also includes the seminal In The Light Dub – one of those cases where a dub album contains all the brilliance of the original set around which it was based – yet comes across with a completely different sound altogether! The original record was focused strongly on the soulful currents of Horace Andy's voice – but the dub set is predominantly instrumental, which buries a bit of the political message in the lyrics – yet seems to paint the same sort of social pictures with the power of its sounds – a rich palette of rhythms, electronics, and effects – often with a darkness that's unspeakable in words, but incredibly powerful at a sonic level. Titles include "Dub There", "Government Dub", "Rasta Dub", "Fever Dub", "Dub The Light", "Dub Down Rome", and "I & I". CD

AnenonPetrol ... LP
Friends Of Friends, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
The cover's got a fuzzy picture of a tenor on the front, and the sound here has some nicely fuzzy currents to match – a compelling blend of jazz music with almost a larger sense of sonic space – a bit like a small combo trying to perform their version of Disintegration Loops! The core sound comes from Brian Allen Simon – who plays the tenor on the front, but also adds in Fender Rhodes, Polysix, and a bit of laptop work too – alongside additional violin from Yvette Holzwarth, bass clarinet from Max Kaplan, and drums from Jon Kyle Mohr – musicians who seem more of the larger soundscape of Simon's electronics than core members of the quartet. The approach is quite unique – almost jazz electronica, although without all the lameness that term might invoke – and titles include "Body", "Lumina", "CXP", "Mouth", "Hinoki", "Machines", and "Petrol".

Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1963. New Copy ... $15.99
The mad look of artist Karel Appel on the cover is a very fitting image for this set – as the music moves around in so many insane ways – often with the kind of dynamic, explosive vibe of Appel's famous paintings! We're tempted to call the set an audio version of abstract expressionism – save for the fact that there seems to be more of a method in the madness here – almost an early version of European free improvisation, served up on a range of analogue electronics, drums, and piano – and often peppered with Karel's vocal exclamations – in a way that almost attempts to bring a sense of humanity to the sometimes-cold world of musique concrete. Titles include "Le Cavalier Blanc", "Poeme Barbare", and "Paysage Electronique". CD

Edward ArtemievStalker/The Mirror – Music From Andre Tarkovsky's Motion Pictures (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Mirumir (Russia), 1975/1979. New Copy (reissue)... $31.99
Sublime soundtrack music from Edward Artemiev – not a big name for film scoring on this side of the Iron Curtain, but a really well-remembered talent for his classic 70s work for the films of Andrey Tarkovsky! Side one of this album features wonderful sounds from the film Stalker – music that begins in a sweet electronic mode, but soon gets darker – a weird space that's somewhere between the German elements of Cluster and Tangerine Dream, and some of the more abstract electronics of the underground academic scene! Yet throughout it all, Artemiev has a very visual approach to his sounds – one that steps out nicely on the one track from the film The Mirror, and an extended tribute to the director too. Titles include "Exodus", "Dedication To Andrey Tarkovsky", "Meditation", "They Go Long", "Stalker", and "Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Luis BacalovA Ciascuno Il Suo/La Polizia E Al Servizio Del Cittadino? ... CD
GDM/Quartet, 1966/1973. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Pierre BarouhLe Pollen ... CD
Saravah (France), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Pierre Barouh – a rare Japanese recording done in the early 80s, with a sound that's quite different from his earlier work – but equally great! The album's never too poppy, or overdone – certainly quite far from conventional 80s work – thanks to help on the session from YMO and David Sylvian, who both bring in some wonderful sensibilities of their own. There's a bit of electronics on the album, but they're used quite softly – creating a cool pillow of sound – layers through which Barouh weaves his amazingly cool voice. There's a nice sense of darkness to the record, with loads of cool late night tracks, and a sound that's still very sexy and French. Tracks include "Les Uns & Les Autres", "St. Paul De Vence", "Demain", and "L'Autre Rive" – and as usual, some tracks were co-written with soundtrack legend Francis Lai. CD
