Sun Ra & His Solar ArkestraI Roam The Cosmos (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Art Yard/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $28.99
Fantastic material from Sun Ra – a never-heard 1972 performance at Slugs, and one that captures the group at their most spiritual point! The core of the set is the track "I Roam The Cosmos" – one of the more obscure Ra compositions, and a title that appears here for the first time on any record – folded together with bits of "Astro Black" and "Discipline 27 II" – in a wonderfully extended single musical performance – stretching for 51 minutes long, and filled with righteous vocal moments alongside some great solos too! The groove is great – kind of a slow dipping and turning rhythm – showcasing recitations by June Tyson and Sun Ra – with lots of room for soulful work from Marshall Allen on flute and alto, Danny Davis on alto, John Gilmore on tenor, Kwame Hadi and Akh Tal Ebah on trumpets, and Danny Ray Thompson on baritone – plus lots of drums and percussion. Really beautiful stuff – as deeply spiritual as the best of the Impulse Records artists, circa 1972 – and appearing here for the first time ever! CD

Solar ShieldSolar Shield ... LP
Austin Boogie Crew, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99
Plenty of beats and bass in a sweet 80s funk mode – served up on a flurry of Korg, Roland, and Yamaha instruments – and presented in an all-instrumental mode that really lets you focus on the groove! This is the kind of electro funk that was almost never put on record back in the day – without any sort of lyrics or too-commercial hooks – and instead just a tight, sharp love of the rhythms and melodic interplay – with lots of keyboards really set free to do their thing! Titles include a remake of "Just The Two Of Us" – plus "Nesting", "Central", "Dandelion", "Serif", "Sprout", and "Beach Bomb". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David Boykin ExpanseSolar Suite ... CD
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2006. New Copy ... $6.99
A set recorded many years back by Chicago spiritualist David Boykin – but one that's finally getting its debut on record, as part of the ever-evolving rich tapestry of sounds that Boykin's been giving us since the 90s! The set here captures David at a key moment – when he was maybe turning towards even more spiritual currents from more outside performances – working with an excellent lineup that features Nicole Mitchell on flute, Josh Abrams on bass, James Baker on piano, Mike Reed on drums, Renee Baker on violin, Chinatsu Nakano on alto, and Shirazette Tinnin on congas. Both Abrams and Reed are also at key points of their development, and together with Boykin and Mitchell, they beautifully point the way forward for a new generation of Chicago expression. The piece is one long live performance, over 45 minutes in length – with segments that include "Midnight", "Sunrise", "Herukhuti", and "Enocturnal Sun". CD

Willie Colon/Ruben BladesCanciones Del Solar De Los Aburridos ... CD
Fania/Musica Latina, 1981. Used ... $19.99
One of the last classic efforts from the team of Willie Colon and Ruben Blades – a subtle but effective set of tracks that showcases both Blades' increasingly political concerns and the growing pan-Latin sound of Colon! The core approach is still mostly salsa, but you can hear plenty of other influences in the mix as well – all carried out with a sound that's simpler, and almost rootsier than some of Colon or Blades' more high-concept records at the end of the 70s. Tracks are all longish, with some good instrumental moments, and titles include "Tiburon", "Te Estan Buscando", "El Telefonito", "Y Deja", "Ligia Elena", "De Que", and "Madame Kalalu". CD

Ramsey LewisFunky Serenity/Golden Hits/Solar Wind/Sun Goddess ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A quadruple-header from Ramsey Lewis – four albums from his great 70s electric period on Columbia Records! First up is Funky Serenity – sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess. Morris Jennings adds in some very nice percussion with his drum work, and Cleveland Eaton's on funky bass, giving the set a strong bottom groove. Features the sublime sample cut "My Love For You", a great version of "Knights In White Satin" that's done with a weird spacey groove, plus the tracks "Kufany Mapenzi (Making Love)", "Serene Funk", "What It Is!", and "Dreams". Golden Hits isn't a "best of", but instead has Ramsey and his funky mid 70s trio with Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton revisiting some of his best loved material from the Cadet years, but with the groovy Rhodes and wah wah sound that we dig so much about his CBS recordings. Unlike some of the other records from this period, the group's nice and stripped down, just the electric piano, bass and drums, so the groove's nice and wide open, Ramsey and company popping along with the sanctified soulful vibe of his 60s work, but updating their sound with some nice electric touches. 9 numbers in all: "Hang On Sloopy", "Blues For The Night Owl", "Hi-Heel Sneakers", "Carmen", "Delilah", "Wade In The Water", "Slippin' Into Darkness", "Somethin' You Got", and "The In Crowd". Solar Wind was cut smack dab in the middle of Ramsey's glory days at Columbia Records – with great production help and work on bass from the mighty Cleveland Eaton! The style is nice and lean, with just some occasional fuller touches – and Ramsey plays plenty of Fender Rhodes, in addition to bits of Arp and moog too – in a setting that's mostly trio, with a few guest players stepping into the mix from track to track! There's a nice degree of fuzz at points, thanks to added help from Steve Cropper – and titles include a great funky version of "Summer Breeze", plus "Solar Wind", "Come Down In Time", "Love for A Day", "Hummingbird", "Jamaican Marketplace", and "Sweet & Tender You". Sun Goddess is one of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the drummer in Ramsey's trio before starting his own group – and the shared relationship both artists had with producer Charles Stepney! The three were all key parts of the late 60s sound at Chess Records – but here, they've brought the same soulful energy to Columbia – working in a wider, more mature groove for the 70s – one that has Lewis' wicked Fender Rhodes lines stretching out strongly over tight, compressed, funky lines from EWF! The centerpiece of the set is the massive 7 minute "Sun Goddess", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Living For The City", "Gemini Rising", and "Jungle Strut". Funky, electric, and sublimely wonderful all the way through! CD

Cal TjaderMambo Sangria – Cal Tjader Plugs In/Solar Heat (Boa) ... CD
Skye/Boa, Late 60s. Used ... $5.99
2 totally great Cal Tjader electric albums – both recorded originally for the Skye label, and back to back on one CD! Cal Tjader Plugs In is a beautifully plugged-in, turned-on session from Cal Tjader – one that features the funky vibist alongside some sweet Fender Rhodes! The session was recorded live, but it's got a flowing, modal quality that rivals Tjader's best work in the studio for Verve and Fantasy at the end of the 60s – a soaring, spacious sound that comes from the interplay between Cal's ringing vibes and the Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano work of Al Zulaica – an excellent player we only know from a few of Tjader's albums. Armando Peraza provides some tight conga work on the set – and titles include "Spooky", "Tra La La Song", "Morning Mist", "Alonzo", "Nica's Dream", and "Get Out of My Way" – a great instrumental take on the Latin soul hit from Joe Torres! Solar Heat is even better – a record that features Joao Donato on organ and Gary McFarland on vibes! The record is a brilliant extension of Cal's styles at Verve – a bit of Latin, a bit of jazz, with some easily grooving numbers that have just the right dose of funk! Donato's organ sounds especially great, and there's also some added electric piano and electric harpsichord on the record, which expands the electricity even more! Loads of great numbers – including "Mambo Sangria", "Fried Bananas", "Solar Heat", "Ode to Billy Joe", and Donato's great "Amazonas". CD

VariousSolar Power – New Sounds In Seattle Hip Hop ... LP
Crane City, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 24.99
A nice primer on the underground hip hop scene in Seattle, circa the post-millennium teens! Solar Power doesn't really set out to round up a succinct snapshot of a particular Seattle style and sound, so much showcase how diverse and distinctive the voices and producers in the city are. Compiled by local scene chronicler Gary Campbell with some nice, kind of old school style back cover notes by Jonathan Zwickel, this compilation has the potential to survive as a pretty vital time capsule of this era in Seattle hip hop history. It's a lot more gender inclusive than many compilations, too, showing that it isn't just a boy's club – and tracks includes "Dodo Call" by DoNormaal, "Hugo Stiglitz" by Remember Face feat Eff Is H, "Tried It" by Stas Thee Boss, "Expectations" by JusMoni, "Know Better" by New Track City, "Stop Calling My Phone" by Taylar Elizza Beth, "Show You Right" by Gifted Gab, "Buttered Flies" by Astro King Phoenix, "Front Steps" by Raven Matthews, "Paint" By Sendai Era and more.

✨✧ Sun RaSolar-Myth Approach Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Very dark stuff from Sun Ra – one of his records that received wider circulation than most of the Saturn releases of the 70s, and a set that maintains a pretty sharp edge overall! Ra plays some killer keyboards – moog, spacemaster, and acoustic piano – often with these really eerie tones – and other players include Kwame Hadi on trumpet, Akh Tal Ebah on space dimension mellophone, Ali Hassan on trombone, Marshal Allen and Danny Davis on alto and flute, John Gilmore on tenor, and Pat Patrick on baritone – and the whole group vocalizes at points, joined by other singers who include June Tyson and Art Jenkins. Recorded at the Sun studios in New York in 1970, the album features a number of shorter tracks like "Spectrum", "The Satellites Are Spinning", "Seen III, Took 4", "Adventures Of Bugs Hunter", and the longer tracks "Legend" and "The Realm Of Lightning".

✨✧ Sven LibaekSolar Flares ... LP
Peer/Votary (Australia), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sublime sound library work from mid 70s Australia – one of the greatest records ever from soundtrack genius Sven Libaek, done in collaboration with a host of the greatest Aussie jazz players of the time! The groove here is laidback, but funky – almost dreamy at times, in the manner of a sweet Italian soundtrack – but also with a flowing groove that seems to draw both from bossa nova and west coast jazz of previous years, yet turn these influences into a whole new sound entirely. Most of the tunes are small combo, and feature reeds from Don Burrows and Erroll Buddle, guitar from George Golla, and vibes from the amazing John Sangster – all wrapped up by Sven with an approach that's almost effortless at times – never too forced, nor too slick – and a fair bit different than music of this type coming from other hemispheres in the 70s! Titles include "Solar Flares", "Stella Maris", "Lift Off", "Destination Omega 3", "Space Walk", "Meteoric Rain", "Quasars", "No Flowers On Venus", and "In Nebular Orbit". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul YoungquistPure Solar World – Sun Ra & The Birth Of Afrofuturism (hardcover) ... Book
University Of Texas Press, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great book that looks not just at the music of Sun Ra, but also the theory behind it – the special take on reality, and interstellar philosophy that made Ra as important a thinker as he was a musician! The music is approached from a theoretical framework that's extremely illuminating – especially if you only know some of the Arkestra records at face value, and not in the larger context of Sun Ra's ideas – and the author includes plenty of history to illuminate the ideas, but in ways that are nicely different than some of the previous books on the subject. The whole thing is a really great look at the transformative power of the music of Ra – that quality that's always made him far more than just another avant jazz musician, and instead a figure of inspiration and social change to decades of listeners who have followed his sound. Very well researched, with copious notes – 346 pages, hardcover. Book

Solar, 1981. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the less-remembered acts of the Solar Records empire of the late 70s/early 80s – but a great one! Collage had a strong modern soul groove – taken especially well at midtempo, which is where the band really hit their stride. This album's produced by The Whispers – and in a way, it's actually stronger than most of The Whispers' own work at the time. Plenty of nice moments, including "When You Smile", "Special Occasion", "Do You Like Our Music?", and their cover of "Groovin". LP, Vinyl record album

LakesideShot Of Love/Rough Riders/Fantastic Voyage (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Solar/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A trio of classic funky albums from Lakeside – with bonus tracks too! First up is Shot Of Love – Lakeside's first album for Solar – and the beginning of a very fruitful relationship for the band and the label! The record's a great one – cut long before the Solar funk sound had gotten cliched – and it includes a key early hit in the Solar sound, the band's "It's All The Way Live", a seven minute funky workout in the tight LA ensemble funk mode. Other tracks include "Given In To Love", "Time", "Visions Of My Mind", and "Shot Of Love". Rough Riders is a sweet second effort from Lakeside – Ohio funk given a sweet LA glow, thanks to the Solar Records power duo of Leon Sylvers and Dick Griffey! The Midwest/Cali bridge is perfect here – as there's lots of raw roots given a tight focus on the record – that move that not only made groups like Lakeside a key force in the evolution of funky soul at the end of the 70s, but also helped pave the way for a decade of music to come – and lots of later influence on hip hop as well! Titles include the super-funky "If You Like Our Music" – plus "Pull My Strings", "I Can't Get You Out Of My Head", "From 9:00 Until", "I'll Never Leave You", and "All In My Mind". Fantastic Voyage is a crowning achievement from Lakeside – one of the key albums to link Ohio funk roots with a smoother LA groove – all served up in a way that had limitless influence for years to come! Bass is definitely at the head of these arrangements, but there's plenty of great guitar too – riffing and scratching in a way that percolates the tunes wonderfully – keeping plenty of funk in the mix without falling into the too-uptight traps that sometimes mired other groups. But almost even better are the vocals – which are tight and well-placed – never an afterthought, but always a key part of the groove, thanks to plenty of great hooks that really send the tunes home! Titles include "Eveready Man", "Say Yes", "Strung Out", "Fantastic Voyage", "I Need You", and "Your Love Is On The One". CD package features bonus 7" mixes of "It's All The Way Live", "Pull My Strings", "From 9:00 Until", "Fantastic Voyage", and "Your Love Is On The One". CD

ShalamarUptown Festival/Disco Gardens/Big Fun (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Solar/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A trio of albums from Shalamar – all from the group's mighty late 70s run! Uptown Festival is the classic first album by Shalamar – that legendary trio that featured a young Jody Watley – all working under the leadership of Soul Train maestro Don Cornelius! Given Don's experience with the growth of 70s soul on his TV show, he's a perfect fit to give the younger singers guidance here – working them through initial modes that are a bit disco, but which also have some of the funkier west coast touches of the Solar Records scene, and a bit of depth that fits the growing strengths of the young singers. The set begins with their classic "Uptown Festival" – a club oriented medley of Motown classics, all strung together in one long track – and other titles include a remake of "Ooh Baby Baby", plus "High On Life", "Beautiful Night", and "You Know". Disco Gardens is filled with snapping soulful grooves from Shalamar – one of the group's big early albums, and an important part of the Solar sound of LA! The trio groove nicely over a set of upbeat tracks that were clearly aimed at the clubs, but which also have more than enough straight soul to get them on the charts. Includes the classic "Take That To The Bank", plus the cuts "Lovely Lady", "Cindy Cindy", "Tossin Turnin & Swingin", "Shalamar Disco Gardens", and "Stay Close To Love". Last up is a definite bit of Big Fun from Shalamar – totally tight and very much at the top of their game – making the transition from disco modes to leaner 80s groove, thanks to lots of great production and songwriting help from Leon Sylvers! Sylvers was really emerging as one of the key forces on Solar Records at the time – and he does a great job here of shaping the trio's strong vocals – which includes work by Howard Hewett and Jody Watley – both of whom are right at home on the album's groovers. Titles include their classic "The Second Time Around", plus "Girl", "The Right Time For Us", "Right In The Socket", and "Take Me to The River". Bonus tracks include "Uptown Festival (7" version)", "Take That To The Bank (7" version)", "Right In The Socket (7" version)", "I Owe You One (7" version)", and "The Second Time Around (12" version)".

Side two is named the "Romancin" side – and as such, has a slightly mellower feel – still some beats on the bottom, but mostly in a gentler way that really lets the harmonies take over.

One of our favorite albums by The Whispers – a later gem with some really great songs, and a sound that shows the group strongly moving into hit territory! In some way, the album's almost a return to the mellow harmony soul of the group's roots – slowing down the pace from the disco years to craft some extremely great ballads and midtempo numbers. There's still a bunch of great club tracks too – like the classic "And The Beat Goes On" – but in a way, our favorite tracks are the mellower ones, like "Lady", "I Love You", and the sublime, "A Song For Donny", a tribute to the late Donny Hathaway, written around the music of his classic "This Christmas".

A trio of classic albums from Lakeside – representing the second slice of their work for the Solar Records label! First up is Your Wish Is My Command – great stuff from the glory days of the LA bass-pedal funk era! The tracks manage to mix an 80s groove and soul without sounding cloying, and the band's vocals are always better than we remember them – with a strong harmony sound in the best moments that keeps things real. Tracks include "Your Wish Is My Command", "The Urban Man", "I'll Be Standing By", "Special", and "Magic Moments". Keep On Moving Straight Ahead is a really well-titled album from the mighty Lakeside – as the record makes you think that the group were going to keep on going for many years – working in their own unique version of earlier funk modes – almost a tightening up of the Funkadelic style of the late 70s! The basslines are very much in charge, but like the George Clinton groups, they also have a great way of really bringing everything together at once – sly vocals, riffing guitar, sweet keyboards, and everything else that comes to groove – all hitting right on the money on titles that include "It's You", "Be My Lady", "All For You", "Anything For You", and "We Want You (On The Floor)". For Untouchables, the gangster image on the cover might be a tipoff to the sound – as Lakeside help forge the roots of g-funk with their classic bass-heavy sound on the album! The record's great – every bit as funky as previous Lakeside work in all the right parts, but also showing a greater development of the group past their funk roots – able to mix mellower moments with groovers, at that sublime level that Fatback hit when the 80s began! There's plenty of greatness here for everyone – and titles include "Real Love", "Untouchable", "So Let's Love", "Turn The Music Up", and "Raid". Bonus tracks include "Keep On Moving Straight Ahead (12" version)", "Raid (7" version)", "We Want You On The Floor (7" version)", "Turn The Music Up (inst dub)", and "Turn The Music Up (7" version)".

Solar/Right Stuff, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A late 80s winner from The Whispers – one of the few 70s groups who really found a way to keep themselves going strong into the next decade! The album gave the group their super-huge hit "Rock Steady" – possibly their biggest mainstream success ever – and it's got the group working with the team of Babyface and Reid, in a snapping kind of soul that's partially pop, but which almost hints at new jack at points. Titles include "Rock Steady", "I Want You", "No Pain No Gain", "In The Mood", "Just Gets Better With Time", "Love's Calling", and "Give It To Me". CD

A definite bit of Big Fun from Shalamar – totally tight and very much at the top of their game – making the transition from disco modes to leaner 80s groove, thanks to lots of great production and songwriting help from Leon Sylvers! Sylvers was really emerging as one of the key forces on Solar Records at the time – and he does a great job here of shaping the trio's strong vocals – which includes work by Howard Hewett and Jody Watley – both of whom are right at home on the album's groovers. Titles include their classic "The Second Time Around", plus "Girl", "The Right Time For Us", "Right In The Socket", and "Take Me to The River". CD

Solar/Unidisc (Canada), 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A key album in the legendary 80s run of Shalamar – and a set that gets a tremendous amount out of a very stripped-down sound! The sound of Shalamar builds from a bit of bass, some snapping drums, waves of keyboards, and especially great vocals – warm and sweet, but never too commercial – despite the hit status of an album like this. If anything, the group have a style that's a bit more relaxed and personal than some of their contemporaries on the Solar Records scene at the time – one that matches the friendly title, and unassuming cover image of the set. Titles include "A Night To Remember", "Playing To Win", "Friends", "On Top Of The World", "Help Me", "There It Is", "I Can Make You Feel Good", and "I Don't Wanna Be The Last To Know". CD

Chet BakerChet Baker In New York (20 bit remaster) ... CD
Riverside, 1958. Used ... $6.99
Quite a great session for Chet Baker – one that has him recording in New York, with a hip lineup that includes some incredibly soulful players! The tunes on the set feature Chet in either quartet or quintet formation – working with Johnny Griffin on tenor, Al Haig on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. Tracks are longish, and the sound is much more in the mode of Riverside at the time, than the sound of Chet's earlier Pacific Jazz records – and Chet holds his own nicely in this company, giving a hint of the style to come in a few more years. Titles include "Fair Weather", "Hotel 49", "When Lights Are Low", "Solar", and "Blue Thoughts". CD features 1 bonus track. CD

The album's even better than Musical Typewriter – quite complicated, with a blend of electronics and gentle acoustic instrumentation, touched up with a few funky rhythms in spots, but not too much so that it gets in the way of the great vocals. Titles include "Solar", "Comigo", "Possibilidade", "Alegria Vai", "Aeroporto 77", "Tema Da Zorra", and "Despedida". CD

Be! (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic unreleased work from one of the greatest trumpeters on the European scene from the late 50s onward – and one of the few players who could match the depth and soul of American jazzmen on the instrument! Dusko Goykovich has given us so much great music over the years – in small groups as a leader, in unusual projects as a sideman, and even as a soloist in bigger bands – and here, we capture the trumpet giant at the earliest stage of his career – on some beautiful German radio studio recordings from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – tight, soulful, boppish material with a slight modern edge – recorded on all tracks with Derek Humble on alto, Karl Drevo (Drewo) on tenor, Franciso Coppieters on piano, and Jonny Fischer on bass. Some tracks feature Kenny Clarke on drums, the rest feature Stuff Combe on the kit – and titles include "Mile Dave", "Omricon", "Perhaps", "Quicksilver", "Solar", "Les Copains", "Salud To Birdland", and "On Green Dolphin Street".

A hard-driving collaboration between Zu and Mats Gustafsson – power jazz at its fiercest, with a pedal-to-the-metal sound that comes across with a definite punk-influenced approach to jazz, and at times a garagey quality that's a nice contrast to other recent avant jazz recordings! The presence of Mats is felt very strongly in the complicated and well-blown sax lines on the set – and if anything, the record's got more of a focus overall than some of Zu's other work. Titles include "How To Raise An Ox", "Palace Of Reptiles", "Beasts Only Die", "Meat Eater Solar Bird", "The King Devours His Sons", and "Over A Furnace". LP, Vinyl record album

ECM (Japan), 1989. Used 2CDs ... $29.99
A great early trio moment from Keith Jarrett – a set that steps off some of his previous Standards albums for ECM, but which also has more of a personal flavor as well! The group here is that great combo with Gary Peacock on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both really open, fluid players who make the music really sparkle alongside Jarrett's piano – offering up tunes that are mostly standards, but in really unique variations! The album's a tribute to key musical heroes – Lee Konitz, Jim Hall, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and others – but the overall sound is pure Jarrett all the way through, on titles that include "Lover Man", "Solar", "Sun Prayer", "Little Girl Blue", "U Dance", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", and "All The Things You Are".

Nicely sharp sounds from the great JJ Johnson – a set that has the trombonist really honing his edge on a host of tight, short tracks – with a vibe that almost recalls his initial bop recordings on Blue Note and Prestige! The style here is a bit more sophisticated – definitely with an ear towards the modern directions that JJ was exploring in the 50s – but the sound is also nicely spontaneous, with more focus on improvisation between group members than larger arrangements – quite nice, given that the group features excellent tenor from Bobby Jaspar on tenor – and either Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones on piano, Percy Heath or Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Tracks are short, and titles include "Overdrive", "Cube Steak", "Chasin The Bird", and "Solar". CD

The songs are all instrumentals, made on the Commdore at a time when that computer was one of the hottest things going – and they're all sexy, slinky numbers that move between electro groove styles – sometimes with a bit of soundtrack drama, sometimes with more of a funky flair!

Saxophonist Azar Lawrence has been having a hell of a renaissance in recent years – and a record like this only helps move that process forward – providing a mighty large feather in Azar's ever-growing cap! The album's a great one from start to finish – a evolution of the spiritual vibe that Lawrence had in the 70s, with maybe some slight Latin currents in the rhythms – all rolling along with this vibe that's soaring and freewheeling, but never too far outside – just boldly stepping into the cosmos, amidst some great new tunes by Lawrence himself, and a few more by pianist Benito Gonzales – whose work here is a key part of the album's sound! The group also features Jeff Littleton on bass, Munyungo Jackson on percussion, and Marvin Smitty Smith on some tremendous drums – on titles that include "African Chant", "La Bossa", "Eye Of The Needle", "Brazilian Girls", "Koko", "Sing To The World", and "Solar Winds".

MandreMandre ... LP
Motown, 1977. Very Good ... $12.99
A classic set of spacey club from Mandre – aka Andre Lewis – an artist we'd place right up there with some of the best cosmic sounds from Dexter Wansel at the time, and maybe even some of the more space-bound club artists of the European scene as well! The album's got some wonderful keyboards throughout – heard in a mostly instrumental mode on side one, save for a great track that includes vocals from Maxayn – and as the set rolls along, things get more confident, more groove-oriented, and pick up some bassier rhythms that fit in wonderfully with Mandre's overall conception! The album's got a fuzzy, trippy sound you'd hardly expect from late 70s Motown – and the whole thing's been an underground club classic for years – with cuts that include the sublime "Solar Flight (Opus I)" and "Third World Calling (Opus II)", plus "Keep Tryin", "Masked Music Man", "Wonder What I'd Do", "Money", "Dirty Love", and "Masked Marauder".

For decades now, Ray Mantilla's been one of the few cats who can effortlessly fuse together Latin rhythms and jazz – creating the kind of music that's completely satisfying to fans of both styles, but all without ever resorting to any sort of easy cliches or overdone modes! Mantilla's the kind of leader who can let the players really do their thing, while still hanging together as a tightly rhythmic unit – driven on by his percussion as well as his direction – with a lineup that features Guido Gonzalez on trumpet, Jorge Castro on baritone and flute, Ivan Renta on soprano and tenor, Edy Martiez on Fender Rhodes and piano, Chuco Martinez on bass, and Diego Lopez on drums. The set also features great guest vibes from Mike Freeman on two tracks – and the whole thing's got a rock-solid, all-jazz vibe that soars out on tunes that include "Solar", "Ramona", "Exit 45", "The Gypsy", "Midnite Jazz Affair", "Comin Home Baby", "Cedar's Blues", and "Third Plane".

Marz echo a bit of the sound of LA soul in the early 80s – particularly some of the bassier modes of the Solar Records groups on their funkier cuts – but they've also got a nicely unique way of putting over a warm ballad without making things too sleepy or too commercial – almost a bit spacey and stepping, when they really get things right! Titles include "Hooked On That Lovin' Thing", "Stay With Me", "Seriously", "You Got Me Crying Again", "Move It Groove It", "Make It Right", "One More Minute", and "Everybody Get Up". CD

Obscure late work from Lee Morgan – the bulk of a live concert recorded in Baltimore in 1968, and featuring a group co-led with the great Clifford Jordan! The recording is one of many taped by Baltimore's Left Bank Jazz Society at the time – and like others you might have heard on disc, it's a rough-hewn effort that shows a very different side of the artists than you'd guess from their studio work of the time. Tracks are all quite long – 15 minutes or more, mostly – and both Jordan and Morgan are playing in a more open, improvised style. Rhythm is by an unusual and compelling trio of Reggie Workman on bass, John Hicks on piano, and Ed Blackwell on drums – who really make for a different groove than usual for either player. The album features a great 21 minute take on Hank Mobley's "The Vamp", plus versions of "Solar", "Straight No Chaser", "Like Someone In Love", and "The Theme". CD

The group's a trio – with Nico Catacchio on bass and Alessandro Napolitano on drums – both players who revel in that loose swing that we've always loved from the European scene. Bill's hands on the piano are breathtaking – wide in their scope, and very deft – but never overstating their strengths, and instead just wonderfully working their way through this larger sonic flow. The set includes the original tunes "Lost In Taranto" and "Piccolo Porticciolo" – plus "Estate", "Solar", "Blue In Green", and "Love For Sale". CD

Sun RaNidhamu/Dark Myth Equation Visitation ... CD
Saturn/Art Yard (UK), 1971. Used ... $9.99
Sun Ra returns to the motherland – to serve up a host of classic recordings done in Egypt in the early 70s! There's a cool exotic feel to some of the best tracks here – a vibe that's quite similar to the groove Salah Ragab was hitting at the time in Cairo, although probably a bit more outside overall – thanks to the Arkestra's strongly modern tones. Recordings were done at a few locations – and the set mixes live concert material with even more intimate sides done at the home of Hartmut Geerken, who was a key force in getting the Arkestra to play in Egypt at the time. Ra plays a host of great keyboards – including rocksichord, tiger organ, and moog – and other players include John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on flute and alto, Danny Thompson on baritone and flute, Kwame Hadi on trumpet, Hakim Rahim on alto and flute, and the trio of Tommy Hunter, Clifford Jarvis, and Lex Humphries on drums. Occasional vocals are sung by June Tyson, Verta Grosvenor, Gloristeena Knight, and Richard Wilkinson – and the set features a whopping 11 tracks, orignally issued on two different Saturn albums, with bonus material too. Titles include "Space Loneliness #2", "Discipline #11", "Nidhamu", "Solar Ship Voyage", "Discipline #27", "Cosmo Darkness", "The Light Thereof", "Friendly Galaxy #2", "To Nature's God", and "Why Go To The Moon?"

Maybe the complete work of Randy & The Randies – a set that includes a few live tracks, rare singles, and even their songs for the soundtrack of the Beauty film from 1982! These guys hail from the Pacific Northwest, and have a sound that's even rougher and more ragged than some of the bigger names that would rise from that scene a few years later – almost a version of the earlier northwest garage mode that's reworked with punk/art energy – still very raw at the core, and with an unassuming quality in the overall presentation that keeps these sounds pretty darn charming all these many years later. In some ways, the group might be a precursor to the K Records sound – and titles here include "Tangled Nico", "Bloating", "Solar Myth", "Desolation's Child", "Burned By Sugar", "Seraphine", and "Ediesong".

80s grooving from Woods Empire – a short-lived group, but one with a great talent for balancing catchy lyrics and tight grooves with a slightly hipper sensibility! The group's a quintet with Tommy Woods in the lead, supported by his four sisters on vocals – almost a family-style approach, like Debarge, but groovier overall. The backing's very much in the Tabu/Solar mold, with nice jazzy touches from the session players like David T Walker, Paul Jackson Jr, Paulinho da Costa and Don Myrick. We're particularly fond of the smooth jazzed out "Universal Love", with a midtempo stepper's feel, and the set also includes "Sweet Delight", "In Your Ear With It", "Misty Eyes", "Destiny", "In The Night Air", "The Boogie's Gonna Get You", and "So Hot".

The set here is a great dip into the farther reaches of Talmy's records of the 60s – way past the hits, to show the kind of magic that really made the studio genius such a key force in developing the sound of London at the time – often with a fair bit of influence from America, but in a way that was already shifting into fresh British modes for the new audiences overseas. As always with Ace, the package and presentation are stunning – and the set even features some rare tracks that truly come from the vaults, mixed with other obscure singles, and supported with a great deal of notes. 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Mai Lee" by John Lee Hooker, "Don't Let It Be" by The Tribe, "Goodbye Girl" by The Preachers, "Goodbye So Long" by The Soul Brothers, "Broken Truth" by A Wild Uncertainty, "Life's Too Good To Waste" by Tony Christie & The Trackers, "Stone Crazy" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Too Much Of A Woman" by The Corduroys, "Have You Ever Had The Blues (alt take)" by Ray Gates, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by John Lee's Groundhogs, "Unto Us (demo version)" by The New Breed, and "Think" by The Total.

✨✧ BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "That's What It's All About", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister". Includes two bonus tracks "Dazz (Dazz Disco mix)" & "That's What It's All About (single version)". Next up is the self-titled Brick – which has the group absolutely killing it with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. This CD edition on Wounded Bird has 2 bonus tracks: "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody (Single Version)" and "Dusic (Short Version)". CD

✨✧ Bill EvansSunday At The Village Vanguard ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Bill Evans' landmark sessions with the young bassist Scott LaFaro – a player who made key contributions on every record he touched, then left this earth far too soon in his career! The live session's a perfect demonstration of the way that the Evans trio format not only re-worked the use of the piano in jazz, but also the bass and drums as well – as LaFaro's deeply evocative playing is paired with the equally fresh drum work of Paul Motian – heard here at his youthful early best, before some of his contributions to jazz had become cliche in the hands of other players. The session was caught live at the Village Vanguard on the night of June 25, 1961 – and titles include longish takes on "Solar", "Jade Visions", "Gloria's Step", and "Alice In Wonderland". CD

✨✧ Keith JarrettTribute ... CD
ECM, 1989. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great early trio moment from Keith Jarrett – a set that steps off some of his previous Standards albums for ECM, but which also has more of a personal flavor as well! The group here is that great combo with Gary Peacock on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both really open, fluid players who make the music really sparkle alongside Jarrett's piano – offering up tunes that are mostly standards, but in really unique variations! The album's a tribute to key musical heroes – Lee Konitz, Jim Hall, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and others – but the overall sound is pure Jarrett all the way through, on titles that include "Lover Man", "Solar", "Sun Prayer", "Little Girl Blue", "U Dance", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", and "All The Things You Are".

✨✧ Keith Jarrett TrioSomewhere ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2013. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Exactly the sort of recording to remind us why the Keith Jarrett Trio has been such an important force in jazz during the past few decades – a popular group, yet one that still retains all its heart and edge as well! The lineup is way more than the piano of the leader – as bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette each provide a crucial third of the group's energy – and, if anything, their presence really helps give a focus to Jarrett's always-inventive sounds on piano – still able to fly as freely as on his own solo recordings, but in different shapes, tones, and rhythmic pulses – an approach that's often especially illuminating when the trio takes on standards. The tracks here are mostly in that mode, but handled in very fresh ways – and the set was recorded live in Luzern, with tracks that include "Deep Space", "Solar", "I Thought About You", "Somewhere", "Everywhere Tonight", and "Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea".

✨✧ Sun RaOut There A Minute ... CD
Blast First (France), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary collection of work from Sun Ra – rare 60s New York recordings from the Arkestra archive, put together at the end of the 80s, at a time when there was very little Ra material on the market! The quality of the work here is extremely high – and the tunes are almost a bit more personal and intimate that some of Ra's more drawn-out recordings of the 70s. Some of the jazz is somewhat straight, but always inflected with creative touches – especially on the rhythms, or on some of the odder instruments used – and there's almost a flavor here that hearkens back to some of the best Arkestra recordings during their later years in Chicago. CD features 13 tracks in all – including "Somewhere In Space", "Out There A Minute", "Starships & Solar Boats", "Other Worlds", and"When Angels Speak Of Love". CD

✨✧ Reign GhostReign Ghost Featuring Lynda Squires (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Paragon/Out-Sider (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A set that's a bit more tuneful and well-written than the first album by Reign Ghost – but a record that still has all the raw power and spooky feel of that debut! As before, the vocals are by male singer Bob Bryden and female singer Lynda Squires – who each take the lead at times, along with another male member of the band – but who often seem to occupy a different space, both lyrically and spiritually. This contrast gives the record a very weird sort of energy – like Grace Slick trying to break away from Jefferson Airplane, or those weird Velvet Underground moments when Lou Reed and John Cale sing in contrast. Titles include "Pudsy's Parable", "Mother's Got Troubles", "Long Day Journey", "Enola Gay", "Solar Nice", and "Breast Stroke Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great reissue – with a bonus insert of notes, too!)

✨✧ Luca MannutzaRemembering ... CD
Rearward (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from a jazz quintet who really knows how to make things soar – a group that's led by pianist Luca Mannutza, who we've really loved on previous records – and who seems to hit new heights with this album! The group have a very round, rolling sound – one that fuses Mannutza's piano with the alto of Paolo Recchia and guitar of Enrico Bracco, in these swirling lines that are pushed along by tremendous work on bass by Luca Bulgarelli, whose warmth really makes the music shine. The elements are familiar, but the way they fuse together is very unique – on titles that include "Blake Runner", "Dedalo", "Circles", "Silent Prayer", "Solar", "Vortex", and "Gira Mondo Gira". CD

✨✧ Paolo Achenza 4Branches ... CD
A.MA (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It's been many years since we last heard from Paolo Achenza – the Italian keyboardist who was one of the first to bring the Fender Rhodes back in the early 90s – and an important early force on the Italian label Schema Records! It's been nearly 20 years since Paolo's last for Schema – but in that time, he's clearly grown a lot as an artist – and although still very much in a funky jazz vein, also opens his ears to a wider range of influences – as you'll hear in this really well-crafted set! Achenza's Rhodes is certainly in the lead, but the record also has contributions from many others too – including singers Richard Sinclair and Nicaleo – who each work on a track – as well as Vito Scavo on trombone, Donny Balice on trumpet, Alberto Parmegiani on guitar, and Franceso Walsh on sitar – artists who each add in different shadings to Paolo's core quartet of bass, drums, and percussion. Achenza was one of the first to really take the Italian electric sound of the 70s forward – and all these many years later, he's still one of the best. Titles include "Solar Whip", "Branches", "Achenzology", "In The Name Of What", "Kinky Habits", "One For Little P", and "Settimo Continente". CD

✨✧ Cameron GravesPlanetary Prince ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic debut as a leader from pianist Cameron Graves – an artist you might know from Kamasi Washington's album The Epic – and an even more tremendous talent when he gets his own chance to shine in the spotlight! Graves has a very bold, righteous vision here – a mode that's in the same California Get Down spirit as Washington's music, but with more focus on the structures built up by the piano – almost a post-modal approach, with soaring spiritual currents – served up not just by Graves on the keys, but also by Kamasi Washington on tenor, Philip Dizack on trumpet, and Ryan Porter on trombone! The three horns have a way of wrapping together as a core, then soaring to the skies – while Graves pumps up the movement with a great deal of energy, and the soloists break off on their own. The group also features bass from Thundercat on two tracks, and Hadrien Faraud on the rest – plus drums from Ronald Bruner. Graves produced – which gives the record a very different feel than other Mack Avenue releases – and titles include "Isle Of Love", "The Lucifer Rebellion", "El Diablo", "Adam & Eve", "Planetary Prince", "The End Of Corporatism", and "Satania Our Solar System".

✨✧ Ben SidranBop City (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Baybridge (Japan), 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful record from vocalist Ben Sidran – kind of a return to straighter jazz vocals after his late 70s experiments with soul – but at a level that shows all the hipper styles he'd picked up in the process! The album features co-production by Mike Mainieri, who's most likely leading the small combo on vibes – an excellent groupt hat also features Phil Woods on alto, Steve Khan on guitar, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Peter Erskine on drums – as well as piano from Ben. Most tracks feature new lyrics by Sidran for key jazz standards – and titles include "Nardis", "Solar", "Big Nick", "Little Sherry", and "Monk's Mood". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Martial Solal & Dave LiebmanMasters In Bordeaux ... CD
Sunnyside, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two giants in modern jazz, coming together here beautifully – on a record that may well be one of the most compelling from either musician in recent years! Martial Solal has definitely returned to the limelight with a strong string of releases over the past decade or so – but he sounds even more amazing here, next to the angular genius of Dave Liebman – whose way of crafting reed lines in the setting really blows us away! There's a really special sort of pairing going on here – like Mal Waldron and Steve Lacy – and the amazing thing is the way these guys can both be totally loose, yet also swong – coming together on brilliant reworkings of "Solar", "All The Things You Are", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Lover Man", and "Night & Day".

✨✧ Tomasz Stanko & Adam MakowiczTomasz Stanko & Adam Makowicz Unit Featuring Czeslaw Bartkowski ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic electric session from the 70s Polish scene – a record that not only features freewheeling trumpet from Tomasz Stanko, and sweet Fender Rhodes from Adam Mackowicz, but also includes some very inventive work on drums and percussion from the great Czelaw Bartkowski! All three players are at the top of their game here – artists who have a strong knowledge of the outside territory of jazz, but also often work a bit more inside – so that their music here can be open and exploratory, but also come back to more soulful, swinging territory too! Most tracks are long, and have the sort of textural energy you'd know especially from Stanko's work – and titles include "Countdown", "Unit", "Solar", "Matce", "Ballad For Randi Hultin", "Zaduma", and "Pony Lungz".

Keith Jarrett with Charlie Haden & Jan GarbarekArbour Zena ... LP
ECM, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A beautiful large-concept album from Keith Jarrett – one that features his piano, the bass of Charlie Haden, and the tenor and soprano sax of Jan Garbarek as the main solo instruments over larger string orchestrations! There's a sense of excitement to the record right from the start – well, not excitement that you'd get in other jazz-based styles – but kind of a sense of hope, drama, and unfolding that really shades the record nicely – and gives it a different flavor from some of Jarrett's other larger form projects of the time – possibly creating the first really unified, extended musical vision he brought to a record like this in the 70s. Beautiful sounds throughout – with titles that include "Runes", "Solara March", and "Mirrors". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has light wear.)
