Gary BartzShadow Do ... CD CD format
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A key early pairing of saxophonist Gary Bartz and producer Larry Mizell – working here together before their more famous collaboration on Capitol Records, in a sound that's even more freewheeling and open-ended! Bartz still has a bit of an edge in his horn here – the style laid down heavily on his NTU Troop records from a few years before – and Mizell takes that edge and runs with it nicely, helping Gary to focus his rhythms a bit more, and reach out with some really wonderful electric sounds. Hubert Eaves plays keyboards here – and Mizell brings in a bit too – and the blend of keys and reeds is really great, with that double-edged depth that makes Gary Bartz so great on his best albums! A bunch of the cuts have that airy Mizell feel to them we totally love, including "Love Tones", "Gentle Smiles (Saxy)", "Sea Gypsy", and "Winding Roads". CD

DJ ShadowYou Can't Go Home Again (radio)/Disavowed/Treach Battle Beat ... 12-inch 12-Inch
MCA, 2002. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $6.99
Shadow's first single off his second LP, and believe it or not, it's as much of a pop/rock record as the UNKLE LP was! We're not complaining though, because this one's got a great new wave twist to it, and on the third track of this single, Shadow's back in battle mode, with vocal cut-ups over a slower beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New DJ Shadow & Cut ChemistRenegades Of Rhythm – DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist Play Afrika Bambaataa (tour book) ... Book Book
Boo Hooray, 2014. New Copy ... $38.99 39.98
A sweet little tour book commemorating DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's Renegades Of Rhythm tour – in which the duo of modern live DJ masters honor pioneer Afrika Bambaataa! The most incredible fact about the tour itself, is that Shadow and Chemist don't just spin records that Bambaataa himself spun back in the day, but they're literally spinning Bambaataa's own record collection – having been granted access by the man himself. The book is great, with text by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist AND Afrika Bambaataa, done in kind of a DIY style that makes it all the more appealing – with a beautiful hand silk-screened cover with by Paul Insect, and featuring full color scans of many of the actual records, some rare old Bambaataa gig flyers and lots more!

LaBelleMoon Shadow ... CD CD format
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. Used ... $28.99
One of the greatest albums ever by Labelle – known especially for the massive funky title cut, which has been an in-demand groover for years! "Moonshadow" begins with a nice funky piano intro, then rolls into a 10 minute groove that's really tasty – filled with lots of jazzy riffing, tasty conga, and a weird monologue by Patti that runs through different parts of the body and why you should appreciate them! The cut was lost on American audiences of the 70s, but became a huge one in the European jazz dance scene of the late 80s, probably because most of them couldn't understand how silly Patti's vocals were! The cut's nice and funky, though – and there's some other nice ones on the record, too, including "Sunday News", "Touch Me All Over", and "Peace With Yourself". Much more interesting than most of their stuff, with a hip mixture of jazz, soul, and hard grooving! CD

Hollywood Basic, 1995. Near Mint- (reissue)... $2.99
Limited repressing of an early DJ Shadow remix of "Real Deal". Supposedly the Lifers Group material was recorded in prison, by MC's who were serving 25+ year sentences, one of a couple of concept projects Funkenklein brought to Hollywood Basic. "Lesson 4" is the now classic 8-minute cut & paste track from Shadow, featuring many now recognizable breakbeats, and a tribute to the early classic breakbeat mixes by Double D & Steinski called Lessons 1, 2 & 3. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Harry NilssonPandemonium Shadow Show (180 gram mono edition) ... LP LP format
RCA/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Brilliant stuff – and exactly the place to start with Harry Nilsson! Long before his style had become cliched – or before it was copied by too many others – Nilsson cut this mad album of wonderful little songs – sort of a cross between folksy singer-songwriter work, and more baroque-oriented styles, like those of Scott Walker – and like Walker, in a really unique space of its own! The key element here is whimsy – and Nilsson let arranger George Tipton take him all over the map, from the somber tone of his classic "Without Her", to the spacious joy of "River Deep Mountain High", to the silliness of "1941", and the sad beauty of "She's Leaving Home". Great stuff all around – with a sound that's impossible to pinpoint, but which is perfect all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

Pinky WintersShadow Of Your Smile (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD CD format
Cellar Door/M&I (Japan), 1983. Used ... $29.99
A beautiful tribute to the work of Johnny Mandel – easily one of the greatest composers of the modern age, partly a soundtrack genius, but also a richly talented songwriter with a great flair for a sad love song! Vocalist Pinky Winters performs a choice collection of Mandel's greatest numbers here – working with pianist Lou Levy in a set that's heavy on the most adult, mature themes of Mandel's 60s oeuvre. Winters' vocal performance is perfect for the material – straight, subtle, and sometimes somber – really bringing out the darker themes in Johnny's wonderful tunes, and really illuminating lyrics penned by Dave Frishberg, The Bergmans, and others. A few tracks feature bass work by Bill Takas, and titles include "The Shining Sea", "Close Enough For Love", "You Are There", "Emily", "A Time For Love", "Unless It's You", "Take Me Home", and "Don't Look Back".

VariousSophisticated Boom Boom – The Shadow Morton Story ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic batch of music that ranges from early rockers to glittery glam rock – from a legendary producer who worked with everyone from The Shangri-Las to The New York Dolls! George Shadow Morton was a key figure in changing the sound of the New York scene in the 60s and early 70s – and with roots in novelty rock and early studio tricks for rock music, he was very well poised to bring his own sort of special magic to later famous productions that make Morton as important a production force as Phil Spector, Kim Fowley, and Jack Nitzsche! The package is one of the richest in Ace Records' look at important producers of 20th Century music – and comes with a special book that's so rich in detail, it warrants a different sort of package than other titles in this series – a perfect accompaniment to the range of sounds that includes "Only Seventeen" by The Beatle-ettes, "Sophisticated Boom Boom" by The Goodies, "Baby" by Ellie Greenwich, "Past Present & Future" by The Shangri-Las, "So Soft So Warm" by The Nu Luvs, "Stop The Clock" by The Shaggy Boys, "Too Old To Go Way Little Girl" by Janis Ian, "You Keep Me Hangin On" by Vanilla Fudge, "And When It's Over" by The Vagrants, "In A Gadda Da Vida" by Iron Butterfly, "Midnight Lady" by Mott The Hoople, and "Stranded In The Jungle" by New York Dolls.

Verve, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that bring out an emotional side of Astrud that you don't always get on other LPs. The track list is excellent, and includes some of her best tracks for Verve, like "Non Stop To Brazil", "Fly Me To The Moon", "O Ganso", and "Aruanda". Not to be passed up, and one that we never tire of listening to! LP, Vinyl record album

New Poets Of RhythmWhat Goes 'Round ... CD CD format
Shadow, 1990s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky gems by the Poets Of Rhythm – one of the best new funk groups around, right up there with Breakestra, Sugarman Three, and other hard-hitting combos! The tunes on the CD are pulled from earlier recordings that the group made under a number of names – some as The Poets Of Rhythm, others originally issued as fake "rare" singles on the Hotpie & Candy label, but finally put out here under the group's proper name. The tracks are filled with hard funky drums, choppy guitars, and the kind of grooves that made the material originally easy to pass off as funky work from the 60s! Cuts include "The Plan", "Strokin The Grits", "More Mess On My Thing", "Funky Run Through (parts 1 & 2)", "What You Doing", "Hotpie's Popcorn (part 1)", "Saltin The Soup", and "It Came Over Me". CD

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhat Now My Love ... LP LP format
A&M, 1966. Sealed ... $13.99
The genius of this set is summed up in the tune "Magic Trumpet" – perhaps one of the best estimations of Herb's talents we could think of! The tune, like the entire album, is a fluid bit of magic that takes an older brass-driven mode into the far groovier styles of the 60s – an approach that fuses all the horns around Herb's boldly stated lead, and slides them all around in jaunty rhythms that are a perfect blend of the A&M groove and an imagined Latin past! Titles include "Freckles", "Magic Trumpet", "Five Minutes More", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "Plucky", "So What's New", and "It Was A Very Good Year". LP, Vinyl record album

Alice ColtraneMonastic Trio ... LP LP format
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
Early work by Alice Coltrane – somewhat under the shadow of her late husband, as you'd guess from the use of his name on the front cover – but really stepping out here with a voice of her own! The Monastic Trio of the set features Alice on harp and piano – alongside bass from Jimmy Garrison and drums by either Ben Riley or Rashied Ali – both really fluid players who open up nicely in this way that's never to far out, at least in the way that John Coltrane was using rhythms at the time – but which allow Alice to really take the lead as a bold musical visionary of her own! Perhaps most exciting, Pharoah Sanders sits in on one of the album's longest tracks – blowing tenor with a force that's enough to bring back The Great One – but the real charm of the set is Alice's piano work, bubbling out here with a sensitivity that we never would have expected from the harder-edge sessions cut with Coltrane – that new level of spirituality she instantly brought to her own solo sessions. Titles include "Ohnedaruth", "Lovely Sky Boat", and "Atomic Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

Perry ComoLightly Latin ... LP LP format
RCA, 1966. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the most sublime albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a set that definitely takes its Latin lightly, and instead really goes for the best sort of mellow side of the Como sound! There's definitely a few bossa touches in the mix – a bit of acoustic guitar or light percussion – but they're added in very sparely, and couched with a beautifully subtle wall of sound from arranger Nick Perito, who works here with a lot more understatement than on some other records. Como's vocals are very far from pop – and the album brings out his maturing style wonderfully with a spacious, soft-toned style of production. Titles include "Dindi", "Once I Loved", "Stay With Me", "How Insensitive", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Baia", and "Manha De Carnaval". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie FisherThird Cup ... LP LP format
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An amazing album by the great guitarist Eddie Fisher – and completely unlike his later funk records! Eddie plays stripped down jazz with a small combo that includes organ by Robert Selby, bass by Paul Jackson, and some rhythm guitar by Phil Westmoreland – and the twin-guitar approach creates this super-dope style that's light years ahead of its time, with a sophistication that points the way to later mid 70s work on labels like CTI and Kudu! Eddie's guitar work is an incredible exercise in spareness and soulfulness – best heard on the fantastic "Third Cup", a long drawn-out jazz stepper that's got to be heard to be believed. The cut's been a favorite on the Chicago jazz stepper's scene for years – and it alone is worth the price of the album. However, the record features some other wonderful stuff – like a sublime version of "Shadow Of Your Smile" that runs for a bubbling 12 minutes – plus the originals "Shut Up", "Scorched Earth", and "Two By Two".

Five SpecialSpecial Edition ... LP LP format
Elektra, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
Classic funky soul from Five Special – tightly crafted throughout, and clearly with an eye on the charts – but also the kind of work that plays nicely on the dancefloor too! The record's got a groove that fits in nicely with some of the lesser-remembered groovers on Elektra at the time – like Shadow or Chameleon – with plenty of jazzy inflections in the rhythms, and a nice sense of 80s groove that keeps the uptempo tracks from being just copycat club. But the vocals here are especially nice, and sparkle even more on the ballads, which have a smooth and warm sound that's tight, yet never commercially cloying. Titles include "Do Something Special", "Heaven", "Who You Been Lovin", "Jam", "Choosin You For Me", and "Had You A Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

Ingebrigt Haker FlatenBirds – Solo Electric ... CD CD format
Tektite, 2012. Used ... $4.99
Weird and wild sounds from bassist Ingebrigt Haker Flaten – working here solo, but on an electric bass – with results that are very different from his playing on an acoustic version of the instrument! The tones are often quite noisy, and very offbeat – sometimes far from music, but wonderful in their sense of space and texture – really opening up a whole new side of Ingebrigt's talents, and moving him way past territory we know from other work! The set was recorded live in the studio, with one more Chicago concert performance – and titles include "Birds", "BP", "Shadow Hillside", "Two", "Lucia", and "Chicago". CD

Fabio FrizziHouse Of Forbidden Secrets ... CD CD format
Beat (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
A great new soundtrack from the legendary Fabio Frizzi – proof that he hasn't lost any of his talents over the course of his many years in film scoring! The music has a really timeless feel – almost more late 70s/early 80s than you'd expect from the more recent vintage of the film – and many numbers have this really spare, lower-end sound which then builds strongly – and is juxtaposed against some bolder keyboard passages that really take off with a dark electric energy! The keys seem to be mostly analogue, which helps for the old school feel of the record – and titles include "Mental Siege", "Life Scraps Underground", "Shadow In The Back Seat", "Samples Of A Hypnotic Session", "No Way Out", and "Reverse Revolution".

An excellent album of hard-rolling piano – part R&B, part blues, and part jazz, some of the incredible work of pianist Lloyd Glenn, a heavy handed groover from the 50s. The tracks are all short, with a rolling piano groove that's part Texas, part New Orleans. Titles include "Glenn's Guide", "Shadow Land", "Chocolate Drop", "Chica Boo", "Tiddley Winks", "Nite Flite", and "Still Water". LP, Vinyl record album

Subtle brilliance from Japanese pianist Masaru Imada – a record that bubbles beautifully with some spare and personal touches – sometimes slightly free, sometimes wonderfully melodic – always with a strong sense of vision and energy! The group here features Imada on acoustic piano, alongside bass, drums, and some especially great tenor and soprano sax from Ichiro Mimori – often played with some slightly sharp edges, but also a surprising degree of soul – a heartfelt, personal quality that slides alongside Imada's piano in a soaring dance of colors and tones. Titles are all originals, and include "Nostalgia", "Alter", "Gehi Dorian", and "The Shadow Of The Castle". CD

Incognito never lets us down – and records like this keep us listening strongly year after year! The set's got all the core brilliance of Incognito at their best – a really classic approach to jazzy soul, served up with top shelf instrumentation by the group – and sent home strongly by a range of singers who include Vandessa Haynes, Tony Momrelle, Chiara Hunter, Imani, Deborah Bond, and the great Carleen Anderson! Nobody can do it as well as these guys – tight, but never uptight – smooth, but never sleepy – really right on the money from the production on down to the bottom – the kind of careful, classy soul that almost makes Incognito a genre unto themselves. Titles include "Wind Sorceress", "Rapture", "Hands Up If You Wanna Be Loved", "Hats", "I Couldn't Love You More", "Something Bout July", and "Silver Shadow". CD

JJ Johnson & Kai WindingJay & Kai (Columbia) ... LP LP format
Columbia, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
JJ Johnson and Kai Winding at the height of their dual powers – working together here beautifully at a level that both embraces the modern sound of the trombone in larger 50s ensembles, but also offers up the more fluid personality of the instrument in the smaller combo scene! The pair have a great way of coming together at the start, then splitting off to find their own space on the tunes – a wonderful antidote to some of the too-tight trombone lines of the 50s, and a great reminder that there's always a voice behind the horn. The group on the record features Dick Katz on piano and celeste, plus either Bill Crow or Milt Hinton on bass, and Shadow Wilson or Kenny Clarke on drums. Candido plays a bit of percussion on the track "Caribe" – and the pair play tromboniums on the tune "Tromboniums In Motion". Other tracks include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "The Song Is You", and "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning". LP, Vinyl record album

Carlos LyraE No Entanto E Preciso Cantar/Eu & Elas ... CD CD format
Philips (Japan), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $9.99
2 later gems from Carlos Lyra – back to back on one CD! First up is E No Entanto E Preciso Cantar – a wonderful 70s session from bossa legend Lyra, and a set that's got a different sound than some of his earlier work – but one that's still plenty great overall! The mode is a bit more subdued than before – still with bossa at the roots, but also production and instrumentation that nod a bit more towards the singer/songwriter generation of the time – almost with a European feel at time. Roberto Menescal produced, and arrangements by Theo Barros have a slow-building, unassuming quality that's really great. Chico Buarque guests on the groover "Essa Passou", and other titles include "Identidade", "Rio Vermelho", "Primavera", "O Pregoeiro", "Ate Parece", and "I See Me Passing By". Eu & Elas is from a few years later, but equally great – never too full or overdone, with arrangements that still shadow a bit of older bossa orchestrations, but which are a bit more laidback and intimate overall. The sound is incredible, and Lyra's vocals are recorded in that flanged-out way that was used beautifully in Brazil at the time – spread speaker to speaker with a closeness that we really love. Titles include "Elas", "Isabel", "Despedida", "O Amor Mais Triste", and "Nothing Night". CD

A lasting classic from the funky female foursome who were one of the biggest acts on Motown in the mid-80s – working here with super tight production and arrangements from Rick James – who also wrote all the songs on the record too! The girls' look is a bit dated, but their sound has surprisingly strong staying power – partly because of Rick's crossover version of funk in the rhythms, but also because of the way the vocal interplay still stays nice and catchy! The album's definitely commercial, but doesn't have that clunk that makes other efforts of this time from the time fall flat – and titles include "In My House", "I Betcha", "Girlfriend", Wild & Crazy Love", "Shadow Lover", "Break It Up", and "Lonely For You".

Joe McPhee & John SnyderPieces Of Light ... CD CD format
Unheard Music Series/Atavistic, 1974. Used ... $9.99
A very unusual little album – even for a musician as experimental as Joe McPhee! This rare 1974 session has McPhee in a series of acoustic/electric duets with John Snyder – improvised numbers that feature Joe on trumpet, saxes, and a range of percussion instruments – plus Synder working out some beautiful ideas on the ARP synthesizer! Given that Synder's ARP has a decidedly analogue sound here, there's an organic quality to the whole album that goes far deeper than just a "jazz meets electronics" sort of set – so much so that it's often hard to determine which sounds are coming from which player, and if that's McPhee we hear on bird chimes or harp, or if it's Snyder creatively programming his synth! A very earthy little record, and very much in keeping with the best of McPhee's key early recordings – with titles that include "Colors In Crystal", "Twelve", "Shadow Sculptures", and "Red Giant". CD

Cali Tex, Early 70s. New Copy 3 LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 35.98
Was funk ever this great again? Maybe not – as Mickey & The Soul Generation were one of the greatest groups of their generation – a completely polished gem, in the sometimes rough-edged funky 45 rockpile! The band never cut a full album, but their 7" singles from the early 70s are the stuff of legend – some of the first funky 45s that started passing amongst collectors, prized for their incredibly tight sound – right up there with the JBs, Meters, and other established funky acts for pure "in the pocket" action. Most of that rare early work's never been reissued – save for the occasional dodgy boot – which is why it's even more wonderful to have this double-length set of work by the group, complete with a fuller track listing than we'd ever imagined they recorded, and full notes on the music and band by Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow! This insane 3LP set is bigger than any previous collection on the group – and has updated notes from Davis, plus a lot more tracks – including a previously unreleased LP, demo material, and live tracks too! Tracks include "Iron Leg", "Football", "Up The Stairs & Around The Bend", "Give Everybody Some", "Joint Session", "Chocolate", "Message From A Black Man", "Soulful Sickness", "UFO", "Hey Brother Man", "Southern Fried Funk", "How Good Is Good", and "We Got To Make A Change".

Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $3.99
An overlooked later gem from the Modern Jazz Quartet on Atlantic – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse, and one with a funkier tone than some of the group's earlier work for the label! Milt Jackson seems to be a bit more in charge of the sound on this set – as the tracks have that earthy quality he was bringing to his own solo albums of the time – yet still ring out with the sense of sound and space that's clearly directed by the John Lewis influence. The whole thing's wonderfully spare – with a sense of timing and grace that's impeccable, yet which also never fails to swing – and titles include "The Spiritual", "Baseball", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Intima", "Novamo", "For Someone I Love" and "What's New".

A&M (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastically sweet pop from Chris Montez! Chris had a light little voice that was perfect for the A&M Records approach of the 60s – a style that has him singing gently over arrangements that glide and bounce around with ease, sometimes handled by Herb Alpert, in a breezy sunny LA mode that makes us want to be driving down Highway 101 with the top down, AM radio blasting out all of Chris' early singles at once! Chris' real genius here is the way that he takes standards and pop tunes – and, working with Herb, crafts them into a whole new sound – stripped down, streamlined, and perfect for the 60s! Titles include "One Note Samba", "The More I See You", "Fly Me To The Moon", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Call Me", "Hey Baby", and "Little White Lies". A great package – as the CD features the whole album in both mono and stereo – 24 titles in all! CD

An incredible record from funky drummer Idris Muhammad! Idris is probably known for his funky break work on Blue Note and Prestige records sessions of the late 60s and early 70s – but by the time of this 1974 album, he was really expanding his style, hitting a laidback groove that went way beyond the simple drum break, into a world of complicated fills and riffs that forever changed the face of funk. The best example of this is the album's standout groove – the massive cut "Loran's Dance", which has a mellow jazzy vibe that you'll recognize from its popular use as a sample cut over the years (by the Beastie Boys, DJ Shadow, and others.) All cuts are long and mellow, and other titles include "Power Of Soul", "Saddest Thing" and "Piece of Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Power Of Soul ... LP 19.99
