Sal SalvadorFrivolous Sal ... LP LP format
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $68.99
Guitarist Sal Salvador made few albums as a leader during his day – but all of them are a treat, especially this one! The set's a mid 50s outing that features Sal's guitar in a quartet with Eddie Costa on piano and vibes – and grooving in a lightly swinging style that has some traces of east coast chamber jazz of the time, but which also displays Salvador's unique fascination with tone, sound, shape, and color! Salvador has a way of approaching the electric guitar that's like few other players in jazz – sometimes coming on full swing, other times laying back and letting the strings and their sounds shape the progression of tunes on the set. Titles include "Salaman", "I Love You", "Handful Of Stars", "Frivolous Sal", "Tangerine", "You Could Swing For That", and "All The Things You Are". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing with deep groove – a nice copy. Cover has a small bit of tape on the seams, and a few light pen notes on back, but is very nice overall. Label has a stamp and a bit of pen, but is nice too.)

Sal SalvadorTribute To The Greats ... CD CD format
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
Sal Salvador pays tributes to the jazz greats of his time – Charlie Parker, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, and others – but also serves things up at a level that's very much his own bag too! The album's got a spare, stripped-down groove that really suits Salvador's guitar well – giving Sal plenty of room to craft these round, warm lines that are full of color and tonal depth – often with a sense of rhythm that makes things groove, even when moving slowly. The group has just the right sort of balance to fit the mood that Sal's going for – with Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, Frank Dallas on bass, and Ronnie Free on drums. Titles include "Manteca", "Ruby My Dear", "Yardbird Suite", "Cool Eyes", "Taps Miller", and "Solos For Guitar". CD

New Sal SalvadorShades Of Sal Salvador ... CD CD format
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD

Sallie BlairSqueeze Me ... CD CD format
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

Howard RobertsMr Roberts Plays Guitar ... LP LP format
Verve, 1957. Very Good- ... $6.99
Howard Roberts' first album as a leader – a unique little session recorded for Verve, and one that's done with a different feel than his later work for Capitol! And in fact, the session's even different than most Verve work from the time – as it's got Roberts soloing over larger group and small combo backing – in a mode that's similar to records cut for other labels by players like Joe Puma or Sal Salvador, with a real focus on deeper tones and colors overall. Backings change from track to track – and include arrangements by Marty Paich, Bob Enevoldsen, Bill Holman, and Roberts himself – and we almost think that the session might have been recorded for another label and leased by Verve – given how different it is from most of their work of the time. The players change as often as the arrangements – but some musicians include Bob Cooper on tenor, Pete Jolly on piano, and Herb Geller on alto – on tracks that include "Serenata Burlesca", "The Innocents", "Ah Moore", "An Orchid For Miss Sterling", and "Jillzie".

New Frank SocolowSounds By Socolow ... CD CD format
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

Ruben BladesNothing But The Truth ... LP LP format
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1988. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of Ruben Blades' key crossover efforts of the 80s – and an album that has him stepping far from the salsa ghetto of the 70s, into a much wider range of styles! Most of the lyrics here are in English – as on other Blades from the time – and although the instrumentation echoes some Latin styles, there's also a more contemporary pop approach going on too. The album includes some songwriting contributions from Lou Reed, Sting, and Elvis Costello – and titles include "Chameleons", "Shamed Into Love", "In Salvador", "The Calm Before The Storm", "The Miranda Syndrome", "Letters To The Vatican", "I Can't Say", and "The Hit".

Luiz BonfaIntrospection/The New Face Of Luiz Bonfa ... CD CD format
RCA/Five Four, 1970/1971. New Copy ... $8.99
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

Collectors Choice, Mid 50s. Used ... $6.99
A fantastic album – if only for the cover! The record features a rare cover image that's an obscure painting by Salvador Dali – pretty surreal for Jackie Gleason, who was supposedly a fan of Dali! The music's not as surreal as the image, but it's still got this amazingly baroque mixture of woodwinds and strings, floating in a pillowy sort of dream-like state. Titles include "There Must Be A Way", "Deep Purple", "I Wished On The Moon", and "Speak Low". CD features bonus tracks "After My Laughter Came Tears", "Can This Be Love", and "Down Among The Sheltering Palms". CD

Amazing live work from this Brazilian samba legend – and a set that features killer guest work from Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Beth Carvalho, Zeca Pagodinho, and others! Although Dona Ivone Lara's been recording for many years, the passage of time has only seemed to deepen her sense of soul and feeling – and even though it's been many years since we heard her last, we find this recent set to be one of her most captivating records ever! Backings are mostly in a traditional samba mode – tight percussion and guitars – and titles include "Sorriso Negro", "Alvorecer", "Samba De Roda Pra Salvador", "Forca Da Imaginacao", "Tendencia", "Sonho Meu", "Dizer Nao Pro Adeus", "Canto De Rainha", and "Nas Escritas Da Vida".

Kenyatta plays with a very nice group that includes Dom Salvador on piano and organ, Stafford James on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and the tracks are nice and long, with a good rolling feel to them.

Amazing sounds from The Meridian Brothers – not a family act at all, but really just a one man operation – yet with a sound that's more than large enough to bring in a whole host of South and Central American influences! Eblis Alvarez uses elements of cumbia, merengue, and other Latin styles – all to create these weirdly offbeat rhythms which are then peppered with acoustic and electric instruments – never in ways that are gimmicky, and always with this organic, spontaneous quality that makes you feel like you've unearthed a crate of obscure Colombian singles in the back corner of an urban flea market! Only a few tracks have a relatively contemporary vibe, but even those echo with older sounds and styles – and titles include "Salvadora Robot", "Somos Los Residentes", "Jefe Indio Vengara", "Doctor Trompeta", and "Un Principe Miserable Y Malvado".

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".

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".

Wicked jazzy bossa from 60s Brazil – a crackling early classic from pianist Dom Salvador! The group here is super-tight – a tremendous triangle of piano, bass, and drums – all grooving at equal pace, with a great deal of energy – and given a heck of a lot of soul from Dom's bold lines on the piano! There's a slight lyrical vibe at points, too – making for music that's mighty sweet, and very seductive – and the whole thing's right up there with some of the best bossa trio dates of the time. Trio features bass by Edson Lobo and drums by Victor Manga – and titles include "Arrastao", "Promessa", "Pro Batera", "Santarem", and "Tematrio". CD

Brazilian Beats have come a long way in just seven volumes – from an initial series approach that focused on older bossa and samba grooves, to this crackling set that's filled with great contemporary moments too! The package may well be the most exciting in the collection so far – as it effortlessly shifts between current grooves from the underground and older gems from the 60s and 70s – showing a never-ending sense of creative combination in Brazilian music – the kind of fresh, groundbreaking sounds that have always had our ears turned towards the music of Rio, Sao Paolo, Recife, and Salvador! The set pulls you in right away with some really wonderful sounds – then opens your mind to a great mix of tracks that includes "Boa Noite" by Karol Conka, "Melo Do Vatapa" by Bemba Trio, "Esquindindin" by Som Sete, "Oba La Vem Ela" by Junip, "Deixa Eu Dizer" by Claudia, "Luiza Manequim" by Abilio Manoel, "Selvagem" by Wan Trio, "Corridos E Toques De Capoeira" by Mestre Bimba, "Plateau (part 1)" by Jackson Conti, "Pra Fazer Um Samba" by Cizinha, "Autorizando" by Jorge Autuori, and "Caminho Livre" by Coaty De Oliveira.

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". LP, Vinyl record album

A stunner of a soul set – put together to support the film on England's Northern Soul scene! The package is worth it for the music alone – a massive 28 tracks that stand together as one of the sweetest Northern Soul collections we've seen in years – a really great choice of material that mixes classics from the scene with the sort of newly-discovered gems that have really kept the scene going for far longer than anyone might have expected back in the 60s and 70s.

Chrysalis/Gold Legion, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The standout set from Amanda Lear – a model turned singer, and one of the more striking crossover divas of the disco era! Lear's got previous ties to Salvador Dali and David Bowie, but she keeps things relatively straight ahead on this debut album – using accented vocals that recall an earlier Hildegard Knef singing in English, set to streaming Euro disco grooves that fit very well with the approach. Lear's not nearly the most soulful singer you'll ever hear, but her approach is certainly striking – especially on the album's best tracks. Titles include the classic "I Am A Photograph", plus "Alphabet", "Blood & Honey", "Tomorrow", "Pretty Boys", "Alligator", and "La Bagarre". CD features the bonus tracks "Queen Of Chinatown", "She's Got The Devil In Her Eyes", "Lethal Leading Lady", and "Blood & Honey (12" version)". CD

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".
