Sal SalvadorMusic To Stop Smoking By ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
Well, this one's not really the kind of album that will make you throw away your Marlboros – but it is a great set of jazz tracks by Sal Salvador, despite a goofy cover and title! The album was issued by Roulette during the time of its "how to strip" and "how to bellydance" classics – but it's honestly just a straight batch of jazz tunes played by Sal on guitar, with small combo backing that includes Ray Starling on piano, John Beal on bass, and Lennie McBrowne on drums. Sal's guitar is right out front, sounding as strong as on other albums of the period – and the only relation to the title of the set is in the choice of tunes, all which are kind of jokes on quitting smoking: "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "I'll Never Be Free", "You Go To My Head", "You Irritate Me So", and the original tune "Stop Smoking Or Else Blues". CD

✨✧ Sal SalvadorSal Salvador Quintet/Quartet/Kenton Presents Sal Salvador ... CD
Blue Note, 1953/1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sal Salvador was one of the 50's more accomplished modernist talents on jazz guitar – and his work ranks up there with players like Tal Farlow, or Gil Melle's great bandmate Joe Cinderella. This long-overdue CD brings together some of his best work from the mid 50s – by pairing one rare Blue Note 10" jazz session with another album that Salvador cut as part of Capitol's "Stan Kenton Presents" series. The Blue Note session's got some great tracks that feature tenorist Frank Sokolow, an icy toned genius who's never gotten his just dues. Other cuts (on both the Blue Note and Capitol sessions) feature Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, and titles from both include "See", "Round Trip", "Wheels", "Salutations", "Down Home", and "Yesterdays". 18 cuts in all, in a great looking package that replicates the orignal cover art!

✨✧ Sal Salvador All Star QuartetJuicy Lucy ... LP
Beehive, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great return to form for guitarist Sal Salvador – a player who didn't always get that much time in the spotlight in the 70s, until a big wave of fresh exposure from the Beehive label! Sal got his start in the Stan Kenton group, where he learned a great sense of color and phrasing – but his approach here is much more down to earth, as he plays in a relaxed combo with Billy Taylor on piano, Art Davis on bass, and Joe Morello on drums! Some tracks are nice and long – with superb solos from Sal and Billy – and titles include "Opus De Funk", "Northern Lights", "Juicy Lucy", and "Tune For Two". LP, Vinyl record album

Tal FarlowThis Is Tal Farlow ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1958. Used ... $9.99
Guitar jazz genius from the amazing Tal Farlow – working here at the height of his powers on a classic session for Verve – a real standout album from the 50s, and one with some slightly more modern overtones than even other Farlow sessions at the time! Part of the strength of the set is the piano work of Eddie Costa – which dances nicely in between the notes, often creating the same sense of counterpoint and interplay as on Costa's excellent albums with Sal Salvador from the same period. Farlow's tone is amazing throughout – rough and pointed, yet always fluid – and titles include "Lean On Me", "The More I See You", "Stella By Starlight", "Topsy", "All The Things You Are", and "Wonder Why".

Beautiful modernist work from Kenton – one of the first albums to cull his genius together as a whole, filled with the kind of tracks that perfectly sum up his unique approach at the time! If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's filled with fantastic original tunes that provide a shimmering solo showcase for work of players like Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, and Bill Holman. Titles include "23 N - 82 W", "Young Blood", "Improvisation", and the haunting "Invention For Guitar And Trumpet", which features Sal Salvador and a young Maynard Ferguson. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBee Hive Session – Unissued Tunes Vol 1 ... LP
Beehive, Late 70s. Sealed ... $4.99
A treasure trove of rare jazz recordings – all material that was cut during the short run of the Beehive label – that excellent Chicago imprint that was based along the ideals of recordings first put in place by Blue Note and Prestige! Beehive also grabbed a lot of players who worked for those older labels, and gave them some of their best showcase in the studio – as you'll hear here on tracks that include a version of "Moonlight In Vermont", with Johnny Hartman on vocals and Al Gafa on guitar; "Like Someone In Love" with Sal Nistico on tenor and Ronnie Mathews on piano; "Blues In F" by the Walter Davis Jr piano trio; "Stablemates" performed by a sextet with Nick Brignola on alto, Pepper Adams on baritone, and Ted Curson on trumpet; and the titles "On Green Dolphin Street" and "Blues In The Closet", played by Sal Salvador on guitar, Eddie Bert on trombone, Nick Brignola on baritone, Derek Smith on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums.

✨✧ Frank SocolowSounds By Socolow ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real lost gem on Bethlehem Records – and one of the few albums to feature this tremendous saxophonist in the lead! Frank Socolow was one of the great unsung reed players of the 50s – and although he lay hidden in some of the larger combos of the early part of the decade, he thankfully got to cut this excellent album as a leader for Bethlehem in the middle part of the decade! The record features a nicely stripped-down combo – with Eddie Bert on trombone, Sal Salvador on guitar, and Eddie Costa on piano – and the overall feel is icy and cool, with distinct touches of Lee Konitz, and a tightly arranged sound which then lets Frank break out strongly against on his solos. Titles include "Miss Finegold", "Little Joe", "Farfel", "Swing Low Sweet Socolow", and "I Love You". One we almost never see on vinyl, either! CD

Afro-Cuban Jazz ProjectTributo A Emiliano Salvador ... CD
Yemaya (Spain), 2000. New Copy ... $9.99 14.95
A wonderfully-done session of Latin jazz – played by a combo formed to pay tribute to the music of Cuban composer Emiliano Salvador! The group on the set is totally great – and features piano by Chuco Valdes, trombone by Juan Pablo Torres, tenor and flute from Juan Manuel, and congas from Tata Guines – all coming together with a number of other players, working in a style that's deeply soulful, and which often has more of a focus on the jazz component of the tracks than usual! The horn work is especially great on the set – arcing and dipping with some heartfelt turns that bring a nice edge to the tracks, and which remind us a bit of the styles we love on some of the older work by Bobby Vince Paunetto. Titles include "A Puerto Padre", "Angelica", "En Una Volanta Actual", "Jazz Plaza", "En Una Manana De Domingo", and "Danza Para Cuatro". CD

Henri SalvadorLive In Paris – January to June 1958 – Mes Inedits ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the great French singer Henri Salvador – and some of his jazziest, too! Much of the work is in a vocalese style, popularized by American singers like Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson – in which Salvador provides his own lyrics to familiar jazz tunes, both French and American – often with hip small combo backing from players who include Raymond Fol or Art Simmons on piano, Jimmy Gourley on guitar, Barney Wilen on tenor, Benny Vasseur on trombone, and even the Count Basie band on two tracks! Some numbers are straight French language covers of American jazz tunes, others have more improvisation on the vocals – and all are in a soulful style that's different than some of Salvador's later work – much more a postwar blend of American jazz and left bank cool. Titles include "Count Basie", "La Panade", "Blues De La Pausa", "Un Poeme", "Compagnons", "Le Gosse", "Tu Ne Risques Rien", "C'Est-Y Qu T'Es C'Est-Y Qu T'es Pas", and "J'Suis Un Feignant". CD

CBS (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A stunner of a record from Brazilian pianist Dom Salvador – an artist who comes on here with a heavy funk groove that almost feels like Chess Records material from the late 60s! Dom's got a rock-solid left hand on the piano – and creates all these hard, down-turning lines that really make the music explode – usually with currents that are a lot more soul-drenched than most of his contemporaries! This is a set that clearly announces that the bossa generation is over, and the samba soul scene has come forth – with loads of groovy tracks, and even a few hip drum breaks as well. Titles include "Cantiga Por Luciana", "Aza Branca", "Folia De Reis", "Barumba", "Sambaloo", "Pais Tropical", and "Tio Macro". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dom Um RomaoDom Um Romao/Spirit Of The Times ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of amazing records from percussionist Dom Um Romao – back to back in a single set! The self-titled Dom Um Romao is an unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York musicians – creating an incredible sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – a rich harmony of Brazilian roots and more creative 70s electric instrumentation – filled with complicated shades, tones, and colors! We'd place this record next to the best electric work by David Axelrod, the dopest funk on CTI, and a rare few other jazz funk albums from the 70s – and the whole thing's completely sublime all the way through! Players include Joao Donato on piano, Dom Salvador on Fender Rhodes, Lloyd McNeil on flute, Mauricio Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Sivuca on organ and guitar, and Joe Beck on electric guitar – and titles include the spare spacey groover "Dom's Tune", the lively dancer "Cinnamon Flower", the jazzy "Family Talk", a great version of "Ponteio", and a take on Sivuca's "Adeus Maria Fulo". Spirit Of The Times is an incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro".

Sublime spiritual sounds from reedman Chip Wickham – part of the new revival of soulful 70s modes that we see in the music of Nat Birchall and Matthew Halsall! Chip lists both of these musicians as key influence in the notes, and we can definitely hear that in the music, too – which is a mix of modal groovers and more spacious numbers that blossom with Strata East-like energy – all handled by a great quartet that features Chip on both flute and tenor, plus Gabriel Casanova on piano, David Salvador on bass, and Antonio Pax on both drums and vibes. The music also has some hip European echoes – with styles that recall older work by Harold McNair on the flute numbers, or maybe the best of the Saba/MPS acoustic years. Easily the most righteous album ever issued by the Lovemonk label – with titles that include "Sling Shot", "Red Planet", "The Detour", "La Sombra", "Pushed Too Far", and "La Leyenda Del Tiempo". CD

An overlooked bit of contemporary genius from Brazil – a record that has all the depth, soul, and complexity of some of our favorites from decades back – and also the same sort of instantly-grabbing sound that transcends the boundaries of nation or language! Rodrigo Campos is a hell of a musical visionary – able to tie together so many different strands here – from complex jazzy charts, to rootsy percussion, to slight acoustic touches – all with a group of like-minded collaborators who seem to realize his vision with the same sort of dedication and commitment we used to hear from Hermeto Pascoal's musicians in years back! The songs have an instant personality of their own, but also a power and majesty that puts Campos right up there with Milton Nascimento and Lo Borges at their best. Titles include "Reibeiro", "Princesa Do Mar", "Cinco Doces", "Sou De Salvador", "Capitao", "Elias", "General Geral", and "Aninha". CD

Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $29.99
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the same territory as Jorge Ben at the end of the 60s, with wickedly riffing guitar and some nicely heavy drums. The lineup is an all-star one – Dom Salvador on piano, Ze Roberto on organ, and trombone from Ed Maciel – and the arrangements are handled by Erlon Chaves, with the same funky approach as his own great music! There's loads of great originals on the record – including "Essa Moca Ta Diferente", "Sarro", "Repouso", and "Bebete Vao Bora" – plus versions of cuts like "Venus", "Evil Ways", and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", all done as groovy instrumentals.

Far Out (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
The greatest work so far from Philippe Baden Powell – the pianist son of the famous guitarist, and a musician we've been watching for years – maybe hitting his best promise here on a forward-thinking album for the Far Out label! Baden's rich piano lines and strong sense of arrangement are in place from before – but he's also got some key help on the record from folks who really help him sharpen his sound, and find some new soulful territory as well! Trumpeter Rubinho Antunes adds a subtle brassy sparkle to the sound at key moments, the duo of bassist Rafael Paseiro and drummer Andre Ceccarelli provide a warmly rolling groove, and guest work from singer David Linx, tenorist Amir Mahla, and vocalist Marlon Moore really help expand the album's sound. Tunes open up in warm currents of jazz and deeper soul – almost showing Philippe to be a sort of Robert Glasper of the Brazilian jazz world – and titles include "Vamos Doneatear", "Chica", "Hues", "For You To Know", "Notes Over The Poetry", and "Salvadora".

Taschen, 2017. New Copy Book ... $54.99 69.99
A beautiful book that traces the intersection of art and commerce in the field of the record album cover – as museum-level creative talents from Salvador Dali, to Albert Oehlen, to Raymond Pettibon all got their time in the record racks – as you'll see in this huge book of full-color images! The book is done in the most lavish Taschen style – and goes way way past the obvious entries, like record covers that use Vincent Van Gough or Hieronymus Bosch – and instead includes mostly work by cutting-edge 20th Century artists, including loads of important talents from the underground – including a surprising amount of images that we never realized were the result of a famous talent. The book is about 450 pages – and doesn't just include the album covers, but also a fair bit in the way of notes and other credits – all laid out alphabetically, by the creators – as a great antidote to some of the more mainstream record album art books on the market. Super-huge, super-heavy, and beautiful color throughout. Book

The set is completely sublime – a wonderful mix of the group's trademark harmony vocals and crackling bossa rhythms, with the warmly flowing CTI production style of the time – not funky like the CTI sound of the 70s, but a bit more sophisticated than the style Creed Taylor had been using earlier at Verve. Tracks are short, breezy, and often very lively – bossa grooving warmed in the California sun – and titles include "Samba Blim", "Watch What Happens", "Pregao", "San Salvador", "Know It All", and "Palladium".

Arrangements are by similar funky talents – like Waltel Branco, Paulo Moura, and Dom Salvador – and titles include "Uma Vida", "Eu Disse Amem", "Juizo Final", "Breve Loteria", "O Jornaleiro", "Me Libertei", "BR 3", and "Uma Cancao Pra Arla".

Cultures Of Soul, Early 70s. New Copy 7 x 7 Inch ... $49.99 55.98
A stunning set of funky nuggets from 70s Brazil – an expertly chosen collection that really hones in on material that shows the strongest influence on the scene from American work of the time – complete with heavy drums, sharp guitars, funky basslines, and killer keyboards that all bring a funky sound to the Portuguese vocals of the tunes! There's some occasional regional influences – touches of samba soul here and there – but overall, most of these cuts could equally compete with the best American funk of the time – save for the difference of language! Yet there's also some really great production and arrangement twists and turns too – unique elements that really make these tunes stand out, as kind of a hip "something extra" that makes the set well worth checking out. The mighty Greg Caz picked the music – and he's been collecting and spinning this stuff for many years – and titles include "A Hora E Essa" by Celia, "Kizumbau" by Eduardo Araujo, "Aposta" by Toni Tornado, "Paz E Amor" by Os Incriveis, "Uma Vida" by Dom Salvador E Abolicao, "Ei Voce Psiu" by Franco, "Jimmy Rende Se" by Tom Ze, "America Latina" by Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma, "Swinga Sambaby" by Trio Mocoto, "Bochechuda" by Toni Tornado, and "Quem Va La" by Antonio Carlos E Jocafi. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fierce funk from 70s Brazil – tracks that easily challenge the same heavy vibe you'd know from American work in the funky 45 underground of the time, or even some of the bigger jazz funk releases of the decade! The artists here aren't inspired by the sound of bossa nova – and instead take keen inspiration from the American world of jazz and soul – which they then mix with occasional instrumental touches of their own region, and often use some wonderfully trippy production to put a really unique spin on the music! So even though these tracks are filled with heavy drums, riffing guitars, and killer keyboards – they've got a special sound that really sets them apart from the American music that first gave them inspiration – all of which makes for an incredibly fresh approach to funky styles. Titles include "Sultana" by Aquarius Band, "Eu Quero Levar Voce Pra Casa" by Ed Lincoln, "The King's Bounce" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Tio Macro" by Dom Salvador, "Kool & The Gang" by Cry Babies, "Metropole" by Cesar Mariano & CIA, "Rush" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Assalto" by Ze Rodrix, "Mr Funky Samba" by Banda Black Rio, and "Tipo Africa" by Brazil Very Happy Band.

✨✧ CybotronMotor City Machine Music – An Explanation Of Cybotron ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key moment in electronic music in the US – the early Detroit experiments of Cybotron! The group were the duo of Juan Atkins and Rick Davis – working in early 80s Detroit, in a sound that would later transform into the more familiar techno groove – but which here is a strange blend of styles that includes bits of Kraftwerk, hip hop, electro, and post-disco club! The overall vibe is pretty spacey – with sci-fi themes that run through most of the tracks, echoed by odd production techniques that repeat the best elements over and over, and maintain a dark, spare style that was clearly the blueprint for midwest house grooves in years to come. And if you've ever been wowed by the darker sounds of Chicago house in the mid 80s, you'll really be stunned by the level of work from these guys – as Cybotron seem to preface just about all the post-industrial themes that would show up later on Trax – but come at things from a very different perspective. And added into the whole uniqueness of the work is the fact that these recordings originally were issued by Fantasy Records – so had a west coast life of their own, on a label that hardly had any other relation to Detroit at the time! The set features a total of 13 tracks that includes a few remixes – and titles include "Clear", "Cosmic Cars (Detroit Style)", "Alleys Of Your Mind", "R-(", "Let's Go", "Techno City", "Industrial Lies", "El Salvador", "Cosmic Raindance", "Cosmic Cars (house mix)", and "R-9 (inst)".

And despite the focus on solo instrumentation, the set's incredibly dynamic – hardly a mellow affair at all, and instead filled with fire and freedom throughout – all in ways that are light years past any previous guitar conceptions from Span, Brazil, or other scenes. Titles include "2 Violes", "Danca Dos Escravos", "Lundu", "Alegrinho", and "Salvador". CD
