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

Cryan ShamesScratch The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great step forward for The Cryan Shames – a group who started their career singing other peoples' music, but who emerge here with some great songs of their own! There's a brilliant Sunshine Pop feel to the whole record – but there's also some garagey elements that reflect the group's presence on the Chicago scene of the 60s – not a Dunwich quality entirely, but not far off either! That edge makes the psych moments really sparkle nicely – with a more sinister feel than anyone might have guessed from the group on their initial outing. A few moments echo Brit invasion modes – but with a trippier style that's a bit like Chad & Jeremy on Columbia – and titles include "Cobblestone Road", "The Sailing Ship", "A Carol For Lorelei", "Sunshine Psalm", "Mr Unreliable", and "In The Cafe".

Earth Wind & FireHead To The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A tremendously beautiful album – and a righteous anthem of power and growth that seems to open itself up to us more and more over the years! Earth Wind & Fire are at their height here – mixing together soul and funk with a set of influences that includes African percussion and Brazilian jazz – then blending the whole thing effortlessly into a cosmic sound that's simply breathless! "Keep Your Head To The Sky" is a song of pride that became an instant underground classic; "Zanzibar" is an incredible reworking of Edu Lobo's famous composition, turning the Brazilian baroque track into a spacey groover that soars on for 13 minutes; and "Evil" is a great tune that features the electrified Kalimba that became the band's sonic and legal trademark over the years! Other titles include "The World's A Masquerade", "Clover", and "Build Your Nest". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Aretha FranklinHey, Now Hey (The Other Side Of The Sky) ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $8.99
One of Aretha Franklin's greatest records – and a complicated batch of jazzy tunes that features arrangements and production by Quincy Jones! The record breaks way past the stock southern soul style of some of Aretha's earlier work for Atlantic – and it features a more sophisticated style that hits a number of different moods, and which shows off Aretha's strong commitment to growth as an artist. Features a semi-hit reading of King Pleasure's old classic, "Moody's Mood For Love", plus "Sister From Texas", "Somewhere", "Angel", and "That's The Way I Feel About Cha". LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis FullerCabin In The Sky ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
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- ... $14.99
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".

Hampton HawesTwo Sides Of Hampton Hawes (High In The Sky/Hampton Hawes Plays Movie Musicals) ... LP
JAS, Late 60s/1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A posthumous issue of material by Hampton Hawes – material originally recorded in the late 60s for the Vault label, repackaged here as a 2-in-1 set! The first record features work from High In The Sky – a lost trio session by Hawes, recorded in LA in 1970, with backing by Leroy Vinnegar and Donald Bailey – and a sound that's a lot more soulful than usual! Hawes is in fine fine form at the time – playing long and contemplative lines that almost sound like they're coming from an electric piano at times, in a mode that must have had a huge influence on other west coast jazzers, like George Cables. The album's got a great long cover of "The Look Of Love", plus a groovy set of originals that include "Muffin Man", "Carmel", "Spanish Girl", and "High In The Sky". A bit hipper than some of his other work – and with a nicely subdued groove! The second set is similar, but slightly different – titled Hampton Hawes Plays Movie Musicals, and featuring a bunch of tunes from same – played by Hampton in a trio setting, but one that's also slightly augmented by a small group from time to time. Titles include "Old Devil Moon", "Where Is Love", "How Are Things In Glocca Morra", and "As Long As She Needs Me". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

A bold statement from former members of the Charles Mingus group – working here together as a unit after the passing of Mingus, in a set that has some of the best fire and energy of Charles' later years! The tracks here are all Mingus compositions – performed in longish takes that allow for some great solo work from John Handy on alto, Joe Farrell on tenor, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, and Jimmy Knepper on trombone – and rhythm on the session is by the trio of Don Pullen on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. Titles include "Goodbye Porkpie Hat", "Boogie Stop Shuffle", "My Jelly Roll Soul", and "Sweet Sucker Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

The seige and battle of the Alamo is a well-trodded piece of history, but what isn't often part of the historical record is the musical history – and this nice tome from authors William Chemerka and Allen Wiener aims to correct that! Includes a look at the songs sung and played prior to the battle itself, as well as the pop culture tunes it inspired. Includes a CD of songs, a forward by Davy Crockett actor Fess Parker, and unlikely Alamo historian/Genesis drummer/singer Phil Collins. Hardcover, 191 pages. Book

✨✧ Family CircleFamily Circle ... LP
Sky Disc/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 16.98
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

Roy AyersDaddy Bug ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Bang & William ParkerMedicine Buddha ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
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

A funky jazz treasure – and the band's landmark first album! The Blackbyrds were a legendary 70s combo that were discovered by Donald Byrd while he was teaching at Howard University – and they had a tight style that mixed raw funk influences with smoother jazz playing, creating a sound that was different from many of their contemporaries, and which pushed funk and soul into a whole new level. Byrd's work with the band was as groundbreaking as Larry Mizell's work on his own Blue Note albums – and coincidentally, Larry Mizzell's Sky High Productions handles the studio chores for the set – but in a way that's much more sharply funky than his albums with Byrd! Titles include the tight choppy funk tracks "Do It, Fluid" and "Funky Junkie", plus other nice groovers like "Summer Love", "Gut Level", and "The Runaway". LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Start has a beautifully put-together feel – tight enough to crossover somewhat big with a larger audience than the group's previous effort – but still filled with the kind of righteous energy that first got them going, a sublime mix of jazzy rhythms and soulful elements, all held together tightly by production from Donald Byrd. Tracks include the big hit "Walking In Rhythm", which was an oft-spun 45 back in the day – plus some great funk moments, like the tasty "Spaced Out", the choppy "The Baby", and the captivating "Blackbyrds Theme". Other cuts include "Future Children Future Hopes", "I Need You", and "April Showers". CD

Brotzmann/McPhee/Kessler/ZerangTales Out Of Time ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 2002. New Copy ... $19.99
A great illustration of the international power of the Chicago jazz scene in recent years – its ability to bring together players like Peter Brotzmann and Joe McPhee, and allow them to record together in such sympathetic company! At the time of the session, McPhee and Brotzmann had worked together for a few years in Brotzmann's larger tentet, and briefly on stage in a co-led quartet – and they share that energy here with bassist Kent Kessler and percussionist Michael Zerang in a set of spare, open-ended tracks that allow plenty of room for intimate improvisation. Brotzmann plays alto and tenor, McPhee plays tenor, pocket cornet, and trumpet – and titles include "Stone Poem 1", "Alto Lightning In A Violin Sky", "Pieces Of Red Green & Blue", "In Anticipation Of The Next", "Do You Still Love Me/Did I Ever", and "Cymbalism".

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!

Billy ButlerBilly Butler Plays Via Galactica ... LP
Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the most obscure albums from jazz guitarist Billy Butler – the musician who first rose to fame in the gritty R&B work of organist Bill Doggett, then went onto cut some great funky albums for Prestige Records at the end of the 60s! This set is a lot more unusual than any of those records, though – as it features music from legendary soundtrack composer Galt MacDermot, who also produced the session for his own tiny label! Billy's style here is a bit different than some of his jazz work – more of a focus on chromes and tones, with some wah wah moments that are especially nice – guitar lines that snake around these laidback grooves from a sweet small combo that features drums by Bernard Purdie, bass by Wilbur Bascomb, and piano by Galt himself! Things get nice and spacey at all the best moments – and tracks include "Hush", "Life Wins", "400 Girls Ago", and "Other Side of the Sky". LP, Vinyl record album

An early classic from Can – the first recordings with Damo Suzuki, and kind of the start of Can's more hypnotic sounds!

✨✧ Al CohnMr Music ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1954. Used ... $12.99
A tight little record – with a strong focus on Al Cohn's solo work! Al's the lead soloist in a number of largish groups that are often tightly arranged, but which let the leader break out nicely – cutting with an edge on his tenor that's sometimes even sharper than usual. Cohn handled most of the arrangements – but a few are by Johnny Carisi, Ralph Burns, or Manny Albam –a nd players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Billy Byaers and Frank Rehak on trombone, Gene Quill on alto, and Jimmy Raney on guitar. Proceedings are tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "Cabin In The Sky", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "This Reminds Me Of You", "Move", "Cohn My Way", "La Ronde", and "Never Never Land". CD

Alice ColtraneReflection On Creation & Space (A Five Year View) ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
A very nice album that features sort of a "best of" sampling of Alice's solo recordings for Impulse in the immediate 5-year period after John Coltrane's death. The tracks are a lovely mix of smaller groups and larger spiritual ensembles – and players include Jimmy Garrison, Pharoah Sanders, Joe Henderson, Ron Carter, and Cecil McBee. There's a lot of nice tracks on here that don't show up that often on vinyl – and titles include "Blue Nile", "I Want To See You", "Sita Ram", "Oh Allah", "Andromeda's Suffering", "Lovely Sky Boat", and "Galaxy In Turiya". LP, Vinyl record album

Creedence Clearwater RevivalWilly & The Poor Boys ... LP
Fantasy, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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
(Later pressing with barcode on cover.)

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireFaces ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
The genius of Earth Wind & Fire knows no bounds – and even on this double-length set, the group keep up their groove tremendously! The 2LP scope of Faces might make it seem like an ambitious enterprise, but it's really just an overstuffed package that tries to contain all the genius the group was capable of at the time – a flurry of well-written, nice-grooving, and still-righteous soul tracks that have the EWF sound glowing brightly at the end of the 70s – always seeming to re-ignite itself with its own bold sense of power. A few tracks get a bit mellow, and almost adult – but the best numbers here are the groovers – still done with plenty of jazz in the mix, and a sublime mix of guitar, horns, and percussion that few other groups could carry off this well! Titles include "Pride", "Let Me Talk", "Turn It Into Something Good", "Sparkle", "And The Love Goes On", "Sailaway", "Take It To The Sky", "Song In My Heart", and "Win Or Lose". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves and the poster. Cover has some wear.)
