Sal SalvadorKenton Presents Sal Salvador (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, 1954. Very Good ... $16.99
A great early session from a vastly underrated guitarist – the great Sal Salvador, a heck of a single note player with a really wonderful sound. The session's a small group one, and features Salvador on both guitar and a bit of vibes – working with players that include Eddie Costa, Jimmy Campbell, and Jimmy Gannon. The tunes are nothing fancy, but do have a slightly off-kilter feel that we really appreciate – with just the right touches of modern to keep things from being in that sleepier camp of 50s guitar jazz. Titles include "Now See Here", "Salutations", "Boo Boo Be Doop", and "Wheels". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label Demonstration pressing.)

Sal SalvadorShades Of Sal Salvador ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good ... $14.99
Wonderful 50s work from guitarist Sal Salvador – a record that features some great work by Phil Woods on alto sax! Given that Sal often recorded in a small combo mode that usually highlighted his guitar in the lead, the presence of Woods is really a nice surprise here – especially since Phil's at that key early point in his career, when he was playing with a raspy edge that could really add a lot to a session! The players here shift a bit from track to track – and Woods is on 7 of the album's 11 tracks – joined on some of the best by Eddie Bert on trombone and Eddie Costa on vibes. Titles include "Joe & Me", "Carioca", "Delighted", "I've Got A Feelin", "I Hadn't Anyone Til You", and "Took The Spook". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging.)

✨✧ Sal SalvadorSal Salvador Quintet (10 inch LP) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sal Salvador was one of the 50s 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 is Salvador's rare first album for Blue Note – only issued in a 10" vinyl format! The record features quartet and quintet material, and includes tenorist Frank Sokolow, an icy-toned genius who's never gotten his just dues. Sokolow and Salvador sound great together, and create a haunting sound that's better than anything we've heard on other Salvador records from his later years. Titles include "My Old Flame", "Get Happy", "Too Marvelous For Words", "Gone With The Wind", and "After You've Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Sallie BlairSqueeze Me ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
Sallie Blair never cut many records back in the day – but she's a hell of a great singer, and one with a really memorable approach! As you might guess from the image on the cover, Sallie's got a fair bit of personality – a way of putting over a tune that's really compelling, and a lot more charming than some of her more cool-voiced contemporaries – especially on the Bethlehem label. Her vocals are great, but her sense of individuality is even better – and there's a quality to the record that really makes it stand out from the pack. Richard Wess handles the arrangements – some with a small combo of Bethlehem players – Sal Salvador on guitar, Sanford Gold on piano, and Milt Hinton on bas – some with larger groups that expand the sound without losing the intimacy of the vocals. Titles include "Similau", "Better Luck Next Time", "Squeeze Me", "Come By Sunday", and "How Long Has This Been Going On". CD

Lenny HambroNature of Things ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $9.99
An excellent album of tunes with a cool Konitz-like sound – featuring the vastly under-discovered reed work of Lenny Hambro, with piano by Eddie Costa, and guitar by either Sal Salvador or Barry Galbraith. The tracks are short and angular – but have a particularly soulful groove in the mix, one that's really surprising, considering that the overall package makes you think the record would be some sleepy over-wrought major label jazz side. Swings like a mofo from a label like Storyville or Bethlehem – and with tracks that include "Comin Thru", "Blue Light", "I Love You Much Too Much", "Libation For Celebration", and "My Future Just Passed".

✨✧ VariousComplete Beehive Recordings (12CD set) ... CD
Beehive/Mosaic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 12CD ... Out Of Stock
The long-awaited CD debut of work from the excellent and short-lived Beehive Records – a Chicago company started in the late 70s, to continue the best 60s spirit of Blue Note and Prestige – with a top-shelf roster that included artists like Curtis Fuller, Clifford Jordan, Dizzy Reece, and Johnny Hartman! At a time when most other labels had forgotten about straight, solid, acoustic jazz – Chicago collector Jim Neumann decided to start getting back to basics, and give some of his hardbop heroes a place to record – starting the Beehive label with his wife and just a shoestring budget, and pursing artists who weren't being recorded properly at the time! The result is an excellent run of records – all of which were only issued on vinyl in the late 70s and early 80s, and appear here on CD for the first time ever – in a wonderful package that adds in notes on every session, and traces the short, but wonderful run of Beehive. Like many small labels, Beehive's fame and success was hampered by reasons of distribution and cashflow – but that never kept their music from sounding as best as it possibly could – with plenty of room for the soloists to open up and do their thing, and no attempt at all to modernize or commercialize the recordings. The sessions sparkle like lost gems from overlooked sessions at Rudy Van Gelder's – and offer up a great picture of artists who were almost lost to the record racks at the times – and the 12CD set features the full albums: Baritone Madness by Nick Brigola (with Ted Curson and Pepper Adams); Burn Brigade by Nick Brigola (with Ronnie Cuber, Walter Davis Jr, and Cecil Payne); Neo Nistico by Sal Nistico (with Ted Curson, Ronnie Mathews, and Nick Brigola); Fire & Filigree by Curtis Fuller (with Sal Nistico and Walter Bishop Jr); Manhattan Project by Dizzy Reece (with Clifford Jordan and Charles Davis); Hyde Park After Dark by Clifford Jordan and Von Freeman; Dr Chicago by Clifford Jordan (with Jaki Byard and Red Rodney); Once In Every Life by Johnny Hartman; Starfingers by Sal Salvador (with Eddie Bert and Nick Brignola); Juicy Lucy by Sal Salvador (with Billy Taylor); Roots Branches & Dances by Ronnie Mathews (with Frank Foster); Legacy by Ronnie Mathews (with Bill Hardman and Ricky Ford); New York Jazz Quartet In Chicago by Roland Hanna (with Frank Wess); In High Profile by Dick Katz (with Jimmy Knepper and Frank Wess); Truckin & Trackin by Junior Mance (with David Newman); and Keep On Pushin by Arnett Cobb (with Joe Newman, Al Grey, & Junior Mance).

Sir Richard BishopSalvador Kali ... LP
Revenant/Exiled, 1998. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99
Really beautiful sounds from Sir Richard Bishop – a set recorded in the late 90s, but delivered with a feel that takes us back to late 60s albums by folks like Sandy Bull, John Fahey, or Peter Walker! Bishop plays a range of guitars – plus piano and harmonium, too – on these long-drawn tracks that bring in some global currents of styles, but often have a very open, hypnotic vibe – very much like some of Bull's most compelling music, but maybe even more organic, given the level of presentation. The set features the very extended "Al Darazi" – plus "Cadaques", "Burning Caravan", "Rasheed", "Morella", "Hadley", "Kamakya", and "Pedro's Last Ride". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black Art Jazz CollectiveBlack Art Jazz Collective – Presented By The Side Door Jazz Club ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A totally great group – all hip leaders who've given us great records on their own in recent years, working together here as a combo with a really fresh sound of its own! The music draws on the strengths of the individual members, but also really pushes forward, too – as their unified voices create moments of pride and power that are maybe even brighter than recent records on own – a truly artful collective expression of the talents of Wayne Escoffery on tenor, Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, James Burton on trombone, Xavier Davis on piano, Vincente Archer on bass, and Johnathan Blake on drums. There's maybe more angular lines than we might have expected, but still a deep sense of warmth as well – on titles that include "Essence Of Beauty", "Double Consciousness", "Going Somewhere", "Salvador Da Bahia", "Devil Eyes", and "Awaiting Change".

Georges Moustaki & OthersGeorges Moustaki Et Ses Premiers Interpretes – Integrale 1955 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99 29.99
Most folks know Georges Moustaki as a grey-haired, full-bearded fellow from his records of the 70s – but back at the start of his career he was a sharp-dressed singer/songwriter who could match the cool and class of some of his best French contemporaries in the postwar years! This set focuses on all that made Moustaki great in the early days – in a 3CD package that features a full CD of his own initial recordings, including some he cut under the name of Eddie Salem – and two more CD's worth of material from other French singers who quickly championed Georges' songs with their own recorded versions! The package is every bit as great as the similar sets from Fremeux on Serge Gainsbourg and Claude Nougaro – and titles include "J'Attends Le Jour", "Mon Ile De France", "De Shanghai A Bangkok", "Ya Me Leili", "J'Ai Deja Dit Non", and "Reste Avec Moi" by Georges Moustaki – plus "Eden Blues" by Irene Lecarte, "Il N'Y A Plus D'Amandes" by Henri Salvador, "Ma Ville A Peur Du Loup" by Noelle Norman, "La Saint Paris" by Paul Roby, "Mi Muchacha" by Les Whiskys, "Dunkerque" by Michele Arnaud, "De Shanghai A Bangkok" by Barbara, "Le Passager Clandestin" by Daniele Rouille, and "Un Etranger" by Edith Piaf. 70 titles in all!

Dom Um RomaoDom Um Romao/Spirit Of The Times ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

Charlie RouseCinnamon Flower ... LP
Douglas, 1977. Very Good ... $2.99
A great later effort from tenor sax giant Charlie Rouse – a record that's quite different than his 50s hardbop or his 60s modernist work with Thelonious Monk – but still pretty darn great in its own sort of way! The album features Rouse working with a larger ensemble in a batch of tracks that has a distinct Brazilian influence – not one from bossa nova, but from the more sophisticated Brazilian jazz modes of later years – particularly as the style started to pick up from some of the arranging modes used in MPB. The players here are all well-suited to the session – and include Clifford Adams on trombone, Claudio Roditi on trumpet, Dom Salvador on piano, Ted Dunbar on guitar, Amaury Tristao on acoustic guitar, Ron Carter on bass, Bernard Purdie on drums, and Wilbur Bascomb on bass – all working together in a style that's somewhat complicated, yet which has an open-ended flow, and a very joyous sensibility overall! Arrangements are by Dom Salvador and Amaury Tristao – and titles include Salvador's romping groover "On The Corner – a real jazz dance classic – plus "Sertao", "Desencontro", "Alvorada", "Natal No Interior", and "Cravo Canela". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dom Salvador & AbolicaoSom, Sangue E Raca ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Brazil), 1971. Used ... $14.99
A landmark in Brazilian funk! This album mixes the hard jazzy piano of Dom Salvador with the funky samba backings of the group Abolicao – and the result is one of the most mindblowing batches of cross-cultural grooves you'll ever hear! The record's a great precursor to later Brazilian funk albums – like those by Banda Black Rio or Unaio Black – but the influence of Salvador's piano gives the record a jazzier edge, one that mixes extremely well with the wide range of percussion on the set. Titles include "Som, Sangue e Raca", "Guanabar", "Moeda, Reza e Cor", and "Samba Do Malandrinho". Very nice! CD

Henri SalvadorRoom With A View (aka Chambre Avec Vue) ... CD
Source/Blue Note, 2000. Used ... $4.99
A beautiful album of French bossa nova tracks – sung by vocalist Henri Salvador, and backed with some light jazzy guitar and piano, very much in the style of backings you'd hear on a classic album by Joao Gilberto. Salvador's voice is wonderful – with that warm, honest quality you'd hear in the vocals of Gilberto or Jobim – and he's joined on a few tracks by guests like Toots Thielemans or Francoise Hardy. Titles include "Mademoiselle", "Jardin D'Hiver", "Il Fait Dimanche", "Jazz Mediterranee", "Vagabond", "Un Tour De Manege", and "J'Ai Vu". CD

Elza SoaresElza Pede Passagem/Sangue, Suor E Raca (bonus tracks) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (UK), 1972. Used ... $14.99
Fast and funky samba tunes by Elza Soares – handled with a great 70s twist, one that brings the tunes up to speed with samba soul work of the time by Jorge Ben and Antonio Carlos E Jocafi! The feel is light and bouncy, but also very soulful – and the set grooves in a way you won't find on some of Elza's other albums – which can sometimes be a bit more playful. This one's really focused, with a very dynamic feel in the rhythms – thanks to great orchestrations from Dom Salvador. The whole thing's a real party throughout, with tracks that include "O Gato", "Barao Beleza", "ABC Da Vida", "Samba Da Pa", "Mais Do Que Eu", "Pulo Pulo", "Amor Perfeito", and "Cheguendengo". CD

VariousBrasileiro Treasure Box Of Funk & Soul ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
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.

A cool portrait of Paris in the late 50s/early 60s years of the new wave – served up here in a collection of music from soundtracks, jazz albums, and lots of French vocal treasures from the time! The grooves definitely run the gamut of styles promised in the title – with an especially strong focus on the way that Latin rhythms really came into the Parisian modes of music, and helped create fresh instrumental interplay that opened the doors to a new variety of vocal expression too!

✨✧ Luiz BonfaIntrospection/The New Face Of Luiz Bonfa ... CD
RCA/Five Four, 1970/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great guitar from Luiz Bonfa – two albums that have the bossa legend moving way past his roots! Introspection has Bonfa recording in New York – a superb solo guitar session that has him playing the instrument as a "miniature orchestra", shading in a rich array of colors, tones, and harmonic spaces through his expert manipulation of the strings. There's still a bit of his earlier bossa phrasing in the record – but it mostly shows Bonfa as a richly talented individual on his instrument, moving past simple instrumental modes into virtuoso territory! Titles include "Adventure In Space", "Reflections", "Enchanted Mirror", "Concerto For Guitar", and "Rain". New Face Of Luiz Bonfa is a wickedly wonderful record from Luiz Bonfa – one that has his bossa-inflected guitar style supported by larger arrangements by Marty Manning. The feel is kind of bossa meets 60s easy meets early CTI – as Manning's work reminds us a lot of the larger orchestrations penned by Don Sebesky or Claus Ogerman at the end of the 60s, a perfect foil for the tighter guitar work of Bonfa – making the album one of the best showcases of his style from the time! Tracks include "Helicopter 274", "Window Girl", "Peixe Bom", "Salvador", and "Africana" – and the record sounds like a lost 70s Italian soundtrack! CD

A beautiful album of spiritual soul and Brazilian influenced jazz from Azar Lawrence – and a pretty rare one we're thrilled to have! Lawrence is a stellar sax player with a sound that's a bit like Gary Bartz, which means that he fits in perfectly with the Fantasy-era Prestige Records sound – but the sounds on this set are uncommonly rich and globally influenced. The set's predominantly acoustic, with lots of modal grooves in kind of a Strata East vein – and angular post-Coltrane playing that's very similar to Bartz's work on the Libra album from his early days. Players include Raul De Souza on trombone, Ron Carter on bass, Billy Hart on drums, Dom Salvador, who is really allowed to shine on piano on a few tracks, and drummer & percussionist Guilherme Franco, who brings a world of wonderful percussion on a couple of numbers. Titles include "Highway", "From The Point of Love", "Novo Ano", and "From The Point Of Light". CD

Don't be put off by the late date of the session, because this is an excellent album from McCoy Tyner – and one with a very spiritual groove that's clearly inherited from Coltrane! The album's based around longer compositions arranged by Tyner, and orchestrated by the great William S Fischer – with lead solos by Hubert Laws on flutes and McCoy on piano, over soaring searching backings that push onward with the same kind of soulful sound as some of Tyner's earlier Blue Note albums. Fischer, as always, manages to balance complexity with straight-ahead grooving – and the clean sound of the album is a surprise throughout! Titles include "Salvadore De Samba", "Beyond The Sun", "Fly With The Wind", and "Rolem". LP, Vinyl record album
