No friction here – as the group's tight and right on the money – flowing wonderfully through the completely catchy groove of "Watching You"! The tune's almost got the appeal of some of the Fantasy Records work by Wayne Henderson – funky club, but with a more sophisticated vibe too – and the flipside features a sweet mellow number with wonderfully warm vocals, and these very cool moogy keyboards! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Curtis FullerCabin In The Sky ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A very unique album by Curtis Fuller – quite different than any of his other records at the time! The session has Curtis blowing on tunes from the score to Cabin In The Sky – arranged by Manny Albam, and performed by a large group that includes Freddy Hubbard, Hank Jones, and Bob Brookmeyer. Far from the snoozy outing that you might guess from the title, the album's actually a deeply spiritual album that has Fuller playing in warm rich tones that he rarely achieves elsewhere. The backing is sensitive, and doesn't get in the way – and instead creates a magical pillow of sound that allows Fuller to craft these warm and sweet notes that are really wonderful. Titles include "The Prayer", "Savannah", "Love Turned The Light Out", and "Love Me Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album

FuturesCastles in the Sky ... LP
Buddah, 1975. Near Mint- ... $28.99
Soaring soul from The Futures – a Philly group who'd already worked for years in the underground before cracking the racks with this debut LP in 1975 – schooled strongly in their best vocal modes from previous singles, and ready to unleash the best side of their sound on the world! The set's got a perfectly put-together style that's much more like some of the Philly vocal work on Atlantic of Philadelphia International at the time – although also not as commercial, thanks to a righteous undercurrent in the group's presentation and overall aesthetic – hinted at by their image on the cover! Arrangements are by David Van DePitte and Wade Marcus, who also echo a bit of Detroit styles too – particularly the righteous blend of The Temptations towards the end of their Motown years. The Futures are equally great on mellow cuts and stormers – and titles include Castles", "Do Unto Others", "Ninety Days (In The House Of Love Correction)", "I Had A Dream", "Love Will Be Around Forever", and "Super Love".

A killer set from Freddie Hubbard's legendary years on CTI! Like the classic Red Clay album, there's 4 tunes here, all longer cuts – where everyone gets a chance to stretch out a bit, over smooth (but not too smooth!) electric grooves, supported by great orchestrations from Don Sebesky! Ron Carter & Billy Cobham provide a tight but elastic rhythmic underpinning – a great foil for solos by players who include Keith Jarrett on electric piano, George Benson on guitar, Hubert Laws on flute, and Freddie himself on trumpet. Airto & Ray Barretto are on percussion, with some nice percolating accents to the grooves – and titles include the classic "Povo", an oft-sampled monster – plus "In A Mist", "The Godfather", and "Sky Dive".

✨✧ Ollie HowellSelf-Identity ... CD
Sky Academy/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
A beautiful voyage of self-discovery from drummer Ollie Howell – but a set that also clearly gets its strength his collaboration with the other members of the session too! Ollie adds in a bit of electronics with his drums, but the core energy here mostly comes from the acoustic exchange between the tenor of Duncan Eagles, trumpet of Henry Spencer, piano of Matt Robinson, and bass of Max Luthert – players who often create these building blocks of sound that soar to the sky with sort of an understated spiritual vibe – very contemporary in approach, yet also with much deeper roots of inspiration. The group also features Ant Law on guitar, and Robinson plays a bit of Fender Rhodes – but the most haunting elements, to us, come from that acoustic core that really drives the sound. Titles include "Almost Tomorrow", "Rise & Fall", "Shadows", "Knew", "Balancing Stones", "In Truth", and "The Unknown". CD

Australian All Stars (with Don Burrows)Jazz For Surf-Niks Vol 2 (with bonus track) ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $5.99
A pivotal moment in the development of Australian jazz – as a quintet featuring Don Burrows, the country's greatest reed player of the 60s and 70s, got this rare chance to cut a record for a US label during an American tour! Even at a young age, Burrows is fantastic on a range of horns – alto, baritone, and flute – and he's working here with tenorist Dave Rutledge, pianist Terry Wilkinson, bassist Freddy Logan, and drummer Ron Webber – a group of lesser-known players, but who really keep up with Burrows' inventive lines. Tracks are short and arranged by the group with a breezy boppish feel – and titles include "Criss Cross", "Pearly", "Steynelus", "Freshwater", "Lotus Bud", and "Down The Mine". Cool "surf" cover, too! CD also features the bonus track "Sky Lounge Blues". CD

Roy AyersDaddy Bug ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... About June 21, 2017
A brilliant set of straight jazz material from Roy Ayers – a set recorded for Atlantic at a time when he was working for the label in Herbie Mann's group – but done in a much more righteous groove that really points the way towards Roy's growth in the 70s! The lineup changes a bit throughout the set – but all cuts feature Herbie Hancock on piano, who helps give the record a solid modal groove that works great with the sound of Roy's vibes – and other players include Buster Williams and Ron Carter on bass, Sonny Sharrock on guitar, and Freddy Waits and Bruno Carr on drums. There's a bit of added strings and woodwinds at points – already showing Ayers' ear for larger, more ambitious sounds – and the whole record's arranged by the ultra-hip William Fischer. Titles include the classic "Daddy Bug", plus "Bonita", "I Love You Michelle", "Emmie", "Shadows", "It Could Only Happen With You", and "Look To The Sky". CD

✨✧ Gary BartzLibra/Another Earth ... CD
Milestone, 1967/1968. Used ... $10.99
Early soul jazz brilliance from a young Gary Bartz – music that pre-dates his Ntu Troup, and his work with Larry Mizell! Libra is fantastic early work from Gary – and probably his rarest record ever! The album was cut at a time when the young Bartz was first coming to prominence in the hip late 60s soul jazz group of Max Roach – and Bartz's playing at the time is a perfect model of mid-Coltrane searching with some of the tighter sides of soul jazz that were being forged at labels like Blue Note by players like Hank Mobley or Lee Morgan. The record's a masterpiece of youthful soulful energy – and the group includes Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Richard Davis on bass, Albert Dailey on piano, and Billy Higgins on drums, all players who are perfectly matched to fit Bartz's stridently creative vision. His solos on alto are impeccable – some of the most meaningful we've ever heard on the instrument from the time – and the album's a great one all the way through! Titles include "Air & Fire", "Eastern Blues", "Libra", "Freedom Of The Day", and "Cabin In The Sky". Another Earth is amazing too – one of the first that Gary Bartz ever cut – done during a time when he'd been working with Max Roach and a super-hip group of younger soul jazz players who would go onto shape the sound of the 70s. Bartz leads a group that includes Stanley Cowell, Freddy Waits, Charles Tolliver, Pharoah Sanders, and Reggie Workman – and the music sounds like it was lifted from one of the best albums on Strata East from the 70s. There's no funk, no vocals, no weird rhythms – just pure spiritual jazz, played to perfection, and filled with a creative vitality that most of the players had lost a few years later. Tracks include the album-side "Another Earth", plus "Dark Nebula", "UFO", and "Perihelion & Aphelion". Note: CD omits the track "Disjunction" from Libra – due to space restrictions. CD

John BlairWe Belong Together ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A strange bit of soul from the later years of CTI – and one of the few albums we've ever seen from the enigmatic John Blair! Blair is an artist with a bit of a cosmic vibe – kind of a spacey sense of soul that maybe fits his appearance on the cover – and which is couched here in kind of a flanged-out rock style that's a bit different than some of the other CTI sessions of the time! D avid Matthews handled the arrangements – mixing in a bit of his funk with some fuzzier currents – and the great Googie Coppola joins John on vocals on a number of cuts, using a spacey soul style that's mighty nice. Titles include "Feather Lite & Honey Smooth", "I'm A Wizard", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "Moonlight Serenade", "We Belong Together", and "Don't Feel That Way No More". CD

Blonde On BlondeRebirth (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $12.99
These guys may have a name that evokes a Bob Dylan album, but their sound is something else entirely – a magical blend of simple instruments in a really unique way – and a songwriting voice that really sets these guys apart from the rest! There were so many great UK groups at the end of the 60s, that possible giants like these guys often got buried in the release schedule of the labels – even though they've got a fully-formed sound right from the start, and a lyrical confidence that's very unique. The music's a bit psych, and not entirely prog – but also reaching for something bigger than any sound of a few years before – and even though the instrumentation is by the very familiar trio of guitar, bass, and drums, there's definitely something special about it – as is also the case with the lead vocals of singer David Thomas. Titles including "Castles In The Sky", "Circles", "Broken Hours", "Heart Without A Home", "Colour Questions", "You'll Never Know Me/Release" and "Time Is Passing". CD features bonus tracks – "Circles (single version)", "Castles In The Sky (alt version)", and "Time Is Passing (alt version)". CD

A landmark album – Donald Byrd's first session with producer Larry Mizell, the man who went on to forever change the face of jazz funk! After rumbling around for a few years attempting electric styles that really didn't fit his mode, Donald wisely hooked up with Larry, and hit a groove here that would carry him for many many years. The album's a masterpiece of soul – heavy production with great keyboards, creating a nice set of grooves that let Byrd solo over the top, sounding better than he had in years! Great all the way through, and with tracks that include "Flight Time", "Sky High", "Black Byrd", "Slop Jar Blues", "Mr Thomas", and the prophetically-titled "Where Are We Going?"

Cool, catchy soul from Matt Cab – a soul singer with American roots, but one who's been making much bigger waves recording albums like this for the Japanese scene – where he seems to be creating quite an audience for his music! Matt's got a style that could be huge if he were given bigger chart placement over here – instantly appealing, with a quality that's heartfelt, but never overdone – and a mode that's never trying too hard to be anything other than a kind of hummable, memorable soul with nice crossover potential – especially on the album's midtempo tracks, which might be the most appealing. The album features guest work from Sway, Maco, and Che'Nelle – and titles include "Take My Hand", "Sweet Simplicity", "Castle In The Sky", "Used To Know", "Come Back", "To You", "Call Your Name", and "That Touch".

RAK, 1972. Very Good- ... $4.99
A genius moment in the jazz rock era – funky big band work supported by hard-wailing guitars – in a blend of modes that was hardly carried off better at the time! A big part of the strength of the set comes from arranger John Cameron – who we love for both his own modern jazz work, and his countless contributions to the sound library and Brit easy scene of the time. Here, he's working with a great sense of punch and rhythm – kicking the larger group of horns up with a funky undercurrent that's great. Alexis Korner is on vocals on some cuts – but the real strength of the record is in the instrumentation – which is nicely funky on the best numbers! Titles include "Chaos – Can We Ever Get It Back", "This Is My Life", "Misunderstood", "Running Out Of Sky", "I Want You Back", "Maggie's Song", "Black Dog", and "Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic dig through the music of Cluster – one that not only features some of their spacey minimal moments from Sky Records, but also includes some of their earliest sounds on Brain Records too! Producer/musician John McIntire's been influenced strongly by Cluster's music over the years – and here, he returns his love to the duo of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius – by offering up his own edits of their tracks "Grosses Wasser", "In Ewigkeit", and "21 32" – alongside well-chosen classics that include "Hollywood", "The Shade", "Fur Die Katz", "Oh Odessa", and "Wehrmut".

ClusterKonzerte 1972/1977 ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), New Copy ... About April 15, 2017 (delayed)
Long loopy live performances from Cluster – captured in two different sets from the 70s, both of which are maybe even more abstract than their studio material of the time! The first half of the set is from 1972 – and features the duo really spacing out on electronics – allowing waves of analogue sound to open up in a wonderful way – pulsating with frequencies that really tie them to some of the more academic experimenters of the previous decade, but handled with that more down-to-earth charm that made them so important in the 70s. The second half is from five years later, and maybe has some of the cooler, calmer elements of the Sky Records years – yet still with a more open-ended abstract quality that's mighty nice. That performance was done for the International Festival of Science Fiction – and it's definitely got a sound to match! CD

✨✧ Alice ColtraneMonastic Trio ... LP
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

Patrick CowleyMuscle Up ... CD
Dark Entries, Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Moody work from the legendary Patrick Cowley – all music originally composed for use in 70s porno films shot on the San Francisco scene – most of it in the years before Cowley took off in more techno-styled dancefloor modes! These tracks are all heavy on electronics, but the grooves are often somewhat gentle – mostly in modes that run from midtempo to spacey, and which clearly featured during the more languid erotic scenes of the movies – maybe moments when the action was heated, but also rapturously intense. And as such, the music has a very different vibe than the familiar funk and jazz you'd know from other porn films of the period (although there is one great funk number here) – and the use of electronics give most of these cuts a cool, spacey vibe – almost like Sky Records material from the German scene, or pre-cold wave electronics. Titles include "Deep Inside You", "5oz Of Funk", "Timelink", "Uhura", "Pigfoot", "Don't Ask", "Cat's Eye", and "Somebody To Love Tonight". CD

✨✧ Creedence Clearwater RevivalWilly & The Poor Boys ... LP
Fantasy, 1969. Very Good- ... $9.99
It's hard to get any more classic than this for Creedence Clearwater Revival – as this legendary late 60s album is definitely the place where it all comes together! The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – driven on by tight bass and drums, but always with this rootsy edge that stretches from the Bay Area scene way down to the bayou! Titles include the classic "Down On The Corner" and a great version of "The Midnight Special" – plus "It Came Out Of The Sky", "Side Of The Road", "Effigy", "Don't Look Now", and "Fortunate Son". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear, some flaking on the spine, and a mostly split bottom seam.)

Jean Michel DavisVibraphone Jazz ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
The title definitely gets it right – but also only gives you part of the picture here – as Jean Michel Davis not only plays vibes, but also a bit of marimba – and the album's split up into three different sections that each offer a slightly different take on the instrumentation! The first third is titled "Yesteryear Vibes" – and features Davis working through small combo readings of older standards – with help from Frederic Loiseau on guitar, Raphael Schwab on bass, and Julien Charlet on drums. The second third is titled "Good Vibes Triptich" – and is quite nice – tunes that really make the most of the tones of the vibes and marimba, with some nicely sparkling currents. The last section is titled "Ethereal Vibes" – and is maybe a bit more complex than the second, but also similar in spirit – and often a bit more dynamic than you'd guess from the name. Titles include "Luba", "Song For Nora", "Dancing In The Sky", "After You", "Deux Points Magenta", "Mondeville", "Star Eyes", "Carinhoso", and "Stella By Starlight". CD
