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

✨✧ Captain SkyConcerned Party No 1 ... LP
TEC, 1980. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
One of the greatest albums by this super-stylized funkster from Chicago! Captain Sky followed very firmly in the P-Funk footsteps – using lots of bass and rocking rhythms to carve out a space-themed groove that had plenty of cool touches! And more than that, the Captain's style was equally well suited to the emerging 80s groove era – and worked well with a nice dose of slight electric touches – not totally wikki-wikki, but certainly setting the stage for that sound! Titles include "Elementary School Of Funk", "Sir Jam A Lot", "Trace Of Love", "Bubble Gum (I Chewz You)", "Tootsie Rock", and "Let Me Come Inside". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisMiles In The Sky (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1968. Used ... $9.99
Miles Davis makes the electric transition – in this groundbreaking set from the late 60s! The classic mid 60s quintet is still in place here – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – but the sound is looser, freer, and more spacious – often echoing some of the rhythmic concerns that would dominate Miles' music in a few more years, but without as much of a bombastic sound. Williams' drums are amazing – fierce one minute, then fading the next – and Herbie Hancock's use of both electric and acoustic piano really points at his own directions in coming years. George Benson plays one one track – "Paraphernalia" – introducing electric guitar to the Miles Davis sound – and other long tracks on the set include "Stuff", "Black Comedy", and "Country Son". CD

Dave DouglasSingle Sky ... CD
Greenleaf, 2009. Used ... $7.99
A beautiful big band project from trumpeter Dave Douglas – done in close collaboration with Jim McNeely, acting as artist in residence and conductor for the Frankfurt Radio Big Band! The ensemble's got a hell of an artistic approach – and they work perfectly here in re-imagining Douglas' music for a larger group – partly with help from Douglas on a few tracks penned specifically for big band, but also with key direction from McNeely, who rearranged some of the others. Dave gets in some strong solos on the date – but other standout players include Staffan Weber and Oliver Leicht on reeds, Peter Feil and Christian Jaksjo on trombones, and Tony Lakatos on tenor and flute. Titles include "A Single Sky", "Persistence Of Memory", "Blockbuster", "Bury Me Standing", "The Presidents", and "Campaign Trail". CD

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

Hampton Hawes TrioHigh In The Sky ... LP
Vault, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Barry MilesSky Train ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Barry Miles is riding the Sky Train – and at a pretty fast clip too, given the jamming energy of this record! The album's one of Miles' most full-on fusion sets – but it's also one of his most soulful as well, thanks to strong use of horns on most numbers – with players like Randy Brecker, Tom Harrell, and Jim Buffington really warming things up. Eric Kloss is in the core group alongside Miles keyboards – and his work on alto sax is a treasure – filled with feeling, even at a fast clip – and sweetly soulful on some of the mellower numbers too. Vic Juris plays guitar, and titles include "Sky Train", "Big A", "Old Man Jack", "Relay", "A Waltz For You", and "Cityscape". CD

Wayne Shorter/Eddie Gomez/Jack DeJohnette/Dave LieTribute To John Coltrane – Live Under The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1989. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A well-remembered live set that's way more than just a record that relies on its "tribute" status to get it across – and instead a really smoking set that's as much a standout moment for reedmen Wayne Shorter and Dave Liebman as it is a tribute to John Coltrane! In fact, the whole thing may be much more Shorter and Liebman-like than you'd expect – with really creative, compelling, and individual work from both players on soprano sax – stretched out over a trio of Coltrane tunes that take on very fresh interpretation on the record – in a quintet that also includes Richie Beirach on piano, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Titles include "After The Rain/Naima", "India/Impressions", and "Mr PC". LP, Vinyl record album

SkySky (Ariola) ... LP
Ariola, 1975. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A classic blend of fusion, rock, and so many other styles – heard here in the groundbreaking debut of Sky! The group features musicians from a surprisingly wide range – the strongest of which is acoustic guitarist John Williams, who'd already had a great run of classical recordings for Columbia Records in the late 60s and early 70s – but steps out here in a very different vein, alongside bold bass from Herbie Flowers (of Brit sound library fame), and lots of great keyboards from Francis Monkman – who first rose to fame in the group Curved Air! The use of acoustic guitar, combined with Williams' virtuosity, gives the record a very different feel than usual albums of this nature – no too-jamming moments, and instead a surprisingly deft, yet light touch on the guitar – one that's never drowned out by the rest of the group. This sense of space really comes to light on the album's reading of Eric Satie's "Gymnopedie No 1" – and other titles include "Westway", "Where Opposites Meet", "Danza", "Cannonball", and "Carillon".

ClusterSowiesoso ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A key chapter in the career of the legendary Cluster – one that has the German duo of Hans-Joachim Rodelius and Dieter Moebius stepping back from their fuller sound of records past – hitting a spare, spacious, lightly electronic sound that would have a huge impact on modern music for many years to come! The feel here is similar to some of the pair's work with Brian Eno, but even more spare overall – often quiet, and almost organic at times – even though most instrumentation comes from electric guitar, keyboards, and analogue electronics. There's an understated quality to the record that makes for a key break from the overindulgence of prog – a move that Cluster made brilliantly to keep themselves healthy for many years to come! Titles include "Zum Wohl", "Sowiesoso", "Halwa", "Dem Wanderer", "Umleitung", and "Es War Einmal". CD

Cluster & EnoCluster & Eno ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A key meeting between 2 important forces in electronic music in the 70s – the increasingly-experimental Brian Eno and the Cluster team of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius! Unlike the trio's other album, this one's an all-instrumental affair – one that takes the atmospherics of Cluster, and gives them a darker Eno edge – in a way that gives the record an incredibly moody feel, and predates endless electronic work to come in the 90s. There's a spare brilliance here that's almost indescribable – songs that are hardly songs, sounds that slide back into silence – but somehow the whole thing's got a power that's far beyond the sum of its very small parts. Titles include "Wehrmut", "Fur Luise", "One", and "Die Bunge". CD

Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Probably the best of the Brian Eno/Cluster collaborations – and a damn great record that's probably one of Eno's last great efforts of the 70s! The record has a beautifully spacey sound, with spare analog electronics that have a perfect German 70's feel – flowing out with an Eno-tuned sense of grace, and made even better by lyrics from Brian on a few of the album's best tracks! The singing style here is in that same beautiful deadpan machine-like mode used on Another Green World – and those tracks are easily up there with his best vocal work on his own albums. Titles include "The Belldog", "Broken Head", "Light Arms", "Old Land", and "Oil". CD

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

Blue Sky/American Beat, 1979. Used ... $6.99
David Johansen's second post-New York Dolls solo record – and the first one where he really sheds the feral rock vibe – but with Mick Ronson on board as co-producer, it's still got plenty of pomp! David would go on to take many creative detours – but in this first real stretch, he's bringing in some Motown influences – with some R&B backing vocals here and there, along with ome sax, piano and other smoothed out touches. That said, it's not that huge of a jump – with some ruggedness and grit reminiscent of his earlier work –and it's got a bunch of really good songs. Titles include "Melody", "She", "Big City", "She Knew She Was Falling In Love", "Swaheto Woman", "Wreckless Crazy", "Flamingo Road" and more. CD

Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
The first collaboration between Dieter Moebius and Conny Plank – and one of the best! The pair come together here in modes that are a lot more playful than some of the other German projects of this nature at the time – not as spare and sensitive as some of the others, and with a bolder sense of rhythm, and willingness to drop lots of odd elements into the mix – a style that almost makes the record come across with similar tones to the Brian Eno/David Byrne collaborations of the early 80s! Each tune has a basic structure, and a few key elements – fuzzy guitar, odd electronics, offbeat rhythms – and they each state their existence quickly, laying out a basic concept right away, then playing with it in cool ways as the tunes roll on. Apart from some found spoken bits, the whole thing's instrumental – and titles include "News", "Feedback 66", "Landebahn", "Solar Plexus", "Two Oldtimers", and "Missi Cacadou". CD

Jason AjemianFolklords ... LP
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
One of the trippiest albums we've heard from Delmark in recent years – a really creative session from bassist Jason Ajemian, and one that links the label's avant jazz work to some of the deeper sides of Chicago's indie scene! Ajemian is free to work without any sense of genre or convention – in a mode that still hits plenty of jazz, with key use of work by Monk, Mingus, and Sun Ra – but which really abstracts things and takes them to a whole new level – opening up cosmic territory that lives up to the album's stated request to "Please Feel Yourselves". Ajemian plays bass and some electronics, in a quartet that also features Owen Stewart Robertson on guitar and electronics, Kid Bliss on alto sax and vibrolux, and Jason Nazary on drums – the last of which are played in a very slow, spacious style. All tracks are long – and titles include "Ask Mr Blunt Now" – which features extrapolations of "Satellites Are Spinning" and "Ask Me Now" – and "Orange Is The Color Of The Sun Then Blue Sky" – which is built upon some key Charles Mingus tunes. Other titles are originals, and include "Material Girls" and "Freedom Is A Trail Of Tears". LP, Vinyl record album

Lorez AlexandriaThis Is Lorez/Lorez Sings Pres ... CD
King/BGP (UK), 1957. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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".

Atlantic, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
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

George BensonSpace ... LP
CTI, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
A collection of George Benson material from other CTI sessions – but that's ok with us, because the material's great, with that spare spaced-out funk sound of the label's best early 70s work! Players include Hubert Laws, Ronnie Cuber, Fred Wesley, Steve Gadd, and Bad Bascomb – and Dave Matthews handled arrangements on one track. Titles include "Sky Dive", "Summertime", "Octane", and "No Sooner Said Than Done". LP, Vinyl record album

Black SabbathSabotage ... LP
Warner, 1975. Very Good ... $14.99
Black Sabbath going strong – very much in their own space by this point in their career, setting a sound that countless others would try to follow – but never match for fierceness like this! The fuzz is definitely turned up to 11, the rhythms move at a breakneck speed, and Ozzy's vocals have all the mean, sinister sounds that set a generation on fire – plenty of energy to fill up long tracks that include "Megalomania", "Hole In The Sky", "Symptom Of The Universe", "Supertzar", "Am I Going Insane", and "The Writ". LP, Vinyl record album

Hiram Bullock/Haru/Leni Stern/Mike Stern55 Bar Sessions ... CD
King (Japan), 1998. New Copy ... $16.99
Four different guitarists – Hiram Bullock, Haru, Mike Stern, and Leni Stern – each coming together in this special sort of session – a record that fives each player two tracks of their own, alongside rhythms from Harvie Swartz on bass and Danny Gottlieb on drums! All four guitarists have a very warm spirit, and that makes for a record that's very unified – and which almost makes it feel as if each individual were trying to find a special space alongside each other. Titles include "All Blues" and "All The Things You Are" from Hiram Bullock, "Days Of Wine & Roses" and "Solar" from Haru, "Solar" and "The Sky Is Crying" from Leni Stern, and "Body & Soul" and "On Green Dolphin Street" from Mike Stern.

Donald ByrdBlack Byrd ... CD
Blue Note, 1973. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
A landmark album – Donald Byrd's first session with producer Larry Mizell, the man who went onto 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?" CD

Matt CabShunkashito ... CD
Warner (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $25.99
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".

Caston & MajorsCaston & Majors (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $8.99
Majestic Motown from the 70s – an almost-overlooked record, but a surprisingly sophisticated gem that's well worth discovering again! The album's definitely soul at the core, but embraces so many other rich styles too – and at points, almost feels like some of the most ambitious material of the Cadet/Concept scene in Chicago – especially given the full orchestrations on the tracks, handled by Jimmy Haskell and Jerry Long! Leonard Caston's the real genius behind the record, though – and works here to provide great support for co-vocalist Carolyn Majors – who trades leads back and forth with him, and is sometimes showcased on tracks that really let her heavenly vocals take off! The whole thing's great – and titles include an early version of the cut "I'll Keep A Light In My Window", which was later recorded by other groups – plus "Child Of Love", "There's Fear", "Satisfied Mind", "Let There Be Love", "No One Will Know", and "Say You Love Me True". CD features loads of bonus tracks too – 9 more numbers that act as a great second chapter to the album – titles that include "Mother's Son", "What About The Price", "If I Can", "We're Together", "I've Got To Fly", "Don't Let", and "I'm Flying Your Sky".

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

Dr DreCompton ... CD
Interscope/Aftermath, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Dr Dre's first proper album in 15+ years, and you just know he wouldn't even bother if didn't have something solid to put there, right? Sky high expectations aside, it's a damn strong effort. Dre is in ringmaster and super-producer mode here, bringing in a diverse roster of vocal players and doing his distinctive thing behind the scenes a lot the time. Compton hardly ever directly retreads on the sounds of his past, which makes it all the more remarkable, because you KNOW this is a Dr. Dre record even if it doesn't sound exactly like his past work. Includes "Talk About It" feat King Mez & Justus, "Genocide" with Kendrick Lamar, Marsha Ambrosius * Candice Pillay, "It's All On Me" feat Justus & BJ The Chicago Kid, "One Shot One Kill" feat Jon Connor & Snoop, "Satisfaction" feat Snoop, Marsha Abrosius & King Mez, "Medicine Man" feat Eminem, Candice Pillay & Anderson .Paak, "Issues" feat Ice Cube, Anderson .Paak & Dem Jointz and more.

JD EmmanuelElectronic Minimal Music – 1979 to 1983 (3LP set – with bonus download) ... LP
Black Sweat (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $48.99
A great overview of the early years of JD Emmanuel – work from his first four years of composing and performing, collected here together for the first time ever! The music is a beautifully moody, spacious approach to electronics – very much in the best spirit of the German scene at the end of the 70s – with elements that recall some of our favorite Sky Records material. Yet there's other moments that have more of a minimalist vibe – incredible keyboard lines that unfold over long passages in space, with a very strong nod to Terry Riley's Rainbow In Curved Air. Emmanuel manages to make all of this music in a wonderful way that's never self-conscious at all – and which also avoids any new age cliches as well – and the whole thing is a really amazing discovery in sound, with appeal to so many different strands of electronic tastes. Titles include "Frantic", "Moving Backwards In Time", "Changling", "March Of The Colossus", "Trance 46", "Driving Force", "Engaging Warp Speed", "Cloud Watching", "Movement Into Lightspeed", and "Free Flight". LP, Vinyl record album

Versatile (France), 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99
A spare, spacey record from this cool French trio – a group who's maybe more laidback than you'd guess from their explosive name – and who work here with lots of great electronics from Gilbert Cohen of Chateau Flight! The record's got a vibe that's almost like some of the best German work on Sky Records at the end of the 70s – a minimal, post-prog use of sound cycles and melodic elements – served up here in a blend of guitar, keyboards, and lots of electronics. All titles are instrumental – and tunes include "Let's Love", "Raga 4", "The Duke", "Planance", "Three Worlds", and "Disco Blind". LP, Vinyl record album
