Sky Saxon Blues BandFull Spoon Of Seedy Blues ... LP
GNP, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Wicked work from the great Sky Saxon – an early record that really gets at the sheer raw power of his best work! Despite the title, the album's hardly a straight set of blues – more a blend of hard rock, psychedelia, and rootsy influences – in the manner of some of the earliest work by Love, but perhaps with more of a Chicago electric approach. Saxon wrote most of the tunes – and titles include "Moth & The Flame", "I'll Help You", "Cry Wolf", "The Gardener", and "Creepin About". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CalderaCaldera/Sky Islands ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of killers from this jazzy Latin combo of the 70s! First up is the self-title Caldera album – a jazzy Latin fusion classic – and the first album by the border-crossing combo! The group features both North and South American players – coming together in a hard-riffing approach to fusion that rivals the best fusion combos of both the California and Brazilian scenes at the time. There's a few nice moments that really belie their more southern roots – and recall the choppy fusion of Airto, or the vocal scatting of Flora – but the set's also got a sunny west coast finish, thanks to some wonderful production from Wayne Henderson – who kicks things up in a way that the group hardly matched on later albums! Guest stars include Raul De Souza and Roberto Da Silva – and titles include the funk classic "Coastin", plus "Guanacaste", "Out Of The Blue", "El Juguete", and "Synesthesia". Nest is Sky Islands – a set that's recorded with a smooth soulful style that's right up there with the best of the Capitol Rare generation! Caldera mixes together nice jazzy saxes with guitars, percussion, and some great keyboard work by Eduardo Del Barrio – all produced by the group with a sweet arching style that's very much in the Brazilian fusion style of the time – a wonderful blend that also gets a dose of California warmth, which is just the right element to send the whole thing home nicely! Tracks include the classic "Sky Islands", plus "Pegasus", "Carnavalito", "Triste", and "Ancient Source". CD

✨✧ Gil Evans & Jaco PastoriusLive Under The Sky – Tokyo 1984 ... CD
Hi Hat, 1984. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99
A mighty pairing of giants – coming together here in a mighty live set that has both musicians at the height of their powers! At some level, the vibe here is that of Evans during his electric ensemble years – especially given some of the players in the group – but the presence of bassist Jaco Pastorius in the lead really sharpens the edges, and almost creates some of the bolder, more powerful sounds you'd expect from Weather Report, or maybe even the Miles Davis electric groups of the 70s! Gil plays keyboards throughout – and other musicians include Hiram Bullock on guitar, George Adams and Chris Hunter on saxes, Lew Soloff and Hannibal Marvin Peterson on trumpets, Pete Levin on electronics, and a surprising appearance by the avant giant George Lewis on trombone. Titles include "Up From The Skies", "Stone Free", "Variations On THe Misery", "Dania", "Jaco Solo/Goodbye Porkpie Hat", and "Here Comes De Honey Man/Eleven". CD

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".

Family CircleFamily Circle ... LP
Sky Disc/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A lost harmony soul treasure – by an obscure family group from the Newark scene! The Family Circle have a fantastic style that mixes together sweet and deep soul styles into a darkly tinged approach that we'd rank with the best harmony soul of the early 70s – similar to work from bigger New Jersey groups, like The Moments or Whatnauts – but with an interesting twist too, given the mix of male and female vocals.. Nearly every track on the album is an original tune – conducted with baroque arrangements by George Andrews, and delivered with a near-perfect approach that makes this album a real treasure all the way through – not a soul record that's great because it's rare, but just a great album all the way through. Titles include "Change", "If You Really Want To Make It", "Loving You Makes The World Go Round", "I Hope You Really Love Me", "Mariya", and "La La So Lucky". LP, Vinyl record album

A crossover club classic from Dan Hartman – a set that hit big with the mainstream audiences at the time, but which also had enough raw disco talent to hold onto longtime fans of the music too! Dan sings lead vocals, and handles most of the instruments at the core – but he's also got some super-heavy assistance from arranger Gene Page – who give the long tracks a mighty majestic finish – pushing Hartman's core ideas into soaringly soulful territory from the very first note! Tom Moulton also mixed the whole record – furthering the classic club sound of the proceedings – and titles include the huge hits "Instant Replay" and "Countdown/This Is It", the funky "Chocolate Box", and the tracks "Time & Space", "Double O Love", and "Love Is A Natural". CD features great 12" bonus tracks – "Instant Replay (12" mix)", "Instant Replay (replayed)", "This Is It (12" mix)", and "Countdown (12" mix)" – all nice and long! CD

Lorez AlexandriaThis Is Lorez/Lorez Sings Pres ... CD
King/BGP (UK), 1957. Used ... $7.99
Incredible early work from Lorez Alexandria – the kind of albums that instantly set her apart from other singers of the 50s, reissued here properly for the first time in years! On This Is Lorez, the singer is working with sublime small combo backings from the group of pianist King Fleming – an unusual Chicago ensemble that includes Wilber Wynn on guitar, Ronald Wilson on flute and oboe, Vernel Fournier on drums, and Audrey Jones on bongos – a musical lineup that brings in a different sort of sophistication to the record, shading tunes with moody colors on flute and oboe that perfectly support Alexandria's soulful and sensitive interpretations of the tunes. The whole thing is pure genius, and a key look at the new levels of sophistication that were bubbling everywhere on the Chicago scene during the years of Jamal and Sun Ra. Lorez Sings Pres follows in a very similar mode – with backing by a Chicago group that again includes King Fleming piano, plus Charles Stepney on vibes, Paul Serrano on trumpet, and Vernel Fournier on drums – an extremely hip lineup that makes the record far more than just the Lester Young tribute promised in the title! But despite the instrumentalists, the real star on all sides is Alexandria – who sings with dark tones and deep colors that go far beyond conventional jazz vocals – all carried off with that slightly breathy mode that was one more unique aspect of her work! CD features all tracks from both albums – a total of 22 titles that include "Snowstorm", "I'm Glad There Is You", "The Sky Is Crying", "I'm Making Believe", "Necessity", "Penthouse Serenade", "DB Blues", "This Year's Kisses", "Easy Living", "No Eyes Blues", "Jumping With Symphony Sid", and a key early reading of "Baltimore Oriole".

Australian All Stars (with Don Burrows)Jazz For Surf-Niks Vol 2 (with bonus track) ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $8.99
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

✨✧ Billy Bang & William ParkerMedicine Buddha ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
Wonderful work from two players who've just gotten better and better over the decades – both musicians who've made a huge impression from the late 70s onward, but who also continue to grow and refine their ideas as the years go on! This set features beautiful duets recorded at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York, in 2009 – with Bang on violin and thumb piano, and William Parker on bass, plus a bit of shakuhashi and dousn gouni as well. Both players handle strings at a level that's far different than most of their contemporaries or influences – and have this sublimely spiritual style that's often a bit exotic too – but never in the sort of easier ways of Bang's Vietnam-related projects. Instead there's a very freely creative spirit as both players come together – finding a unique voice that's extremely moving, and never too heavy-handed – a huge reminder of why we love them both so much. Titles include "Bronx Aborigines", "Eternal Planet", "Buddha's Joy", "Medicine Buddha", and "Sky Song". CD

✨✧ Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 5 & 6 – Dil Cosby & Dil Withers – A Tribute To Dilla ... CD
Stones Throw, 2008. Used ... $7.99
A mad funky pairing of beat suites from the Beat Konducta – Vols 5 & 6 in the evolving, unpredictable series of deep, crackling beatcraft – with a little help from J Rocc and spiritual guidance from Dilla! The Dil Cosby and Dil Withers Suites are as solid as any of the volumes to date, compellingly funky and in more of Madlib's heady hip hop mode than some of the more psychedelic and experimental efforts before it. That's not to say that Madlib's given up on the oddball flourishes – it's a wild ride, but the emotionally resonant soul samples, some with vocals, but mostly instrumentals, and thumping beats loom large in the mix. 'Lib is the longstanding champion of hazy, smoked out hip hop funk instrumentals – and these volumes together add up to another blunted gem – with moments that are purely influenced by and tributes to J Dilla – those with with the soaring soul string bits anchored by abstract beats – but Madlib's own smoked out sonic signature is out front always. 42 short bursts of mad genius, with spacey jazz funk, cosmic keys, and swirling samples galore! Titles include "For My Mans (Prelude)", "The Mystery (Dilla's Still Here)", "Beat Provider (Through The Years)", "The String (Heavy Jones)", "Dirty Hop (The Shuffle)", "Shades Of Pete (Super)", "Rebirth Cycle (Super Soul)" "Dil Withers Theme", "First Class (The Best Catalogue) ", "Lifetime (Lifeline)", "The Electric Zone (Plugged In)", "Smoked Out (Green Blaze Subliminal Sounds)", "Another Bag of Bomb (No Seeds)", " Never Front (Ears Up) ", "Slapped Up (Snap N' Clap)", "The Sky (Beyond Sight)" and more.

Bunny BeriganTake It Bunny (Dutch pressing) ... LP
Epic, Mid 30s/1955. Very Good ... $9.99
Classic 30s work from trumpeter Bunny Berigan – served up here in a great 50s LP package that showcases his talents on the horn! There's a warmth and raspy charm to these sides that instantly shows why Berigan was a standout player at the time – an artist who could hit the hard notes with the frenzy of any of his competitors, but also an entertainer who was willing to step back and personalize (and vocalize) things when needed. Players on the tunes include many who would go onto lead their own groups – Artie Shaw, Jack Teagarden, Claude Thornhill, and others – and titles include "I Can't Get Started With You", "Solo Hop", "Dixieland Shuffle", "It's Been So Long", "Let Yourself Go", "If I Had My Way", "I'd Rather Lead A Band", and "A Melody From The Sky".

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

Blues MagoosGulf Coast Bound ... LP
ABC, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Amazing work from the Blues Magoos – stretching way beyond their roots as a garage rock band! The album's free, open, with a really jazzy style that shows that these guys had been soaking up plenty of influences from the left end of the singer/songwriter spectrum – and had also been spending a lot of time learning how to play their instruments! At one level, the album's chock-a-block with hip tunes that veer into blue eyed soul territory – and at another, it's got some jazzy inflections that move into the mind-expanding territory reached by a rare few other rock/soul groups of the time. Percussion is wonderful on the set, and Pee Wee Ellis plays a lot of great sax on the set – and the real treat is excessive use of vibes, which makes for some cool sounds on a number of tracks. Includes the long groover "Can't Get Enough Of You", which features a great percussion breakdown in the middle – plus "Gulf Coast Bound", "Sea Breeze Express", "Magoo's Blues", "Tonight The Sky's About To Cry", and "Slow Down Sundown".

GRP/PTG (Netherlands), 1981. Used ... $9.99
A sweet bit of electric funky jazz from Tom Browne – a bit tighter and with more of an 80s groove than some of his earlier work, but still pretty darn nice! Tom's always great – blowing over the top in spare, but well-placed trumpet solos – and the backing on the album shifts between a number of different soulful fusion modes that are all handled pretty strongly, without the traps that other artists would fall into on a record like this. Lead vocals on some of the tracks are by Frank Floyd, Margie Barnes, or Keith John – and the album includes the sweet jazzy groover "Come For The Ride", plus "Fungi Mama/Rebopafunkadiscolypso", "My Latin Sky", "A Message", "Charisma", "Naima", "Lazy Bird", and "Bye Gones".

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good ... $11.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & gold label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Donald ByrdDonald Byrd's Best ... LP
Blue Note, Early 70s/1975. Very Good ... $5.99
A tasty collection of goodies that Donald recorded with the great Larry Mizell during the early 70s. Certainly not his all-inclusive best, but some of our favorite material by this legendary soul jazz trumpeter. The tracks have a sparkling electric jazz funk sound, with amazing production that keeps them drifting along with a very soulful vibe. Titles include "Sky High", "Street Lady", "Change", "Stepping Into Tomorrow", "Black Byrd", and "Flight Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Matt CabShunkashito ... CD
Warner (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
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".

Channels/Continentals/Bop-Chords/Love-NotesRumble ... CD
Jubilee/Collectables, Late 50s. Used ... $6.99
One of Jubilee Records' excellent collections of earlier vocal group material – served up in a cool covered package with some nice Scorpio Rising overtones! The collection doesn't exactly come across with the violence implied by the name, and most material here has a style that's older than the cover image would imply – but the album, like others in the series, was a key format for presenting cuts known only as singles – at a level that gave them a bit more prominence in the market. The whole thing's great – music that's at the best level of early group soul on the New York scene – and titles include "Fine Fine Frame" and "Dear Lord" by The Continentals, "The Gleam In Your Eye" and "The Closer You Are" by The Channels, "Castle In The Sky" and "When I Woke Up This Morning" by The Bop Chords, and "If I Could Make You Mine" and "Tonight" by The Love Notes.

✨✧ Don Cherry/Nana Vasconcelos/Collin WalcottCodona Trilogy (3CD set) ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1978/1980/1982. Used 3 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Three groundbreaking albums from this ethereal ECM ensemble – a very hip trio that features Don Cherry, Nana Vasconcelos, and Collin Wolcott – all coming together in a beautiful blend of jazz, world music, and a touch of ECM atmospherics! The instrumentation is quite compelling with Cherry on trumpet, flutes, organ, and doussn'gouni; Vasconcelos on berimbau, cuica, talking drum, and percussion; and Wolcott on sitar, tabla, dulcimer, and percussion – all instruments that are used sparely, often away from their original cultural context, in ways that unlock new sounds and new meanings in the hands of the trio! The record is quite open and airy at points – really resonating in that sweet ECM style of production, which almost seems to build a new sense of majesty out of the simplest acoustic elements. 3CD set features each individual album, plus new notes – and titles include "Like That Of Sky", "Codona", "Mumakata", "Drip Dry", "Walking On Eggs", "Goshakabuchi", "Clicky Clacky", "Trayra Boia", "Lullaby", "Travel By Night", and "Inner Organs".
