Piero UmilianiPercussioni Ed Effetti Speciali ... CD
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $12.99
Percussion and special effects – a really wonderful blend, especially in the hands of Italian maestro Piero Umiliani! The album's one of Piero's more experimental and electronic outings – done for the Liuto sound library label, with lots of cool production techniques that make the drums and percussion nice and echoey, and just ripe for layers of keyboards and electronics, too! And although the record is experimental, it's often quite groovy – in the best Umiliani manner, with a few funky passages stepping out of space as well – in a blend of acoustic, electric, and cosmic that reminds us of some of the sci-fi soundtrack work of Peter Thomas. Titles include "Ritmi In swing", "Timbales", "Protesta Giovanile", "Bongos In Suspense", "Dinimica In Beat", "Dinemica In Tensione", "Organo In Suspense", "Fascia Metallica", "Battimenti", and "Esplosioni".

Milton NascimentoClube Da Esquina 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $54.99
A second great statement from the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – that special assemblage of musicians from his home territory of Minas Gerais, augmented here in slight ways that maybe make the album an even more ambitious record than the first! All the best artists from the previous set are in place here – including the sublime Lo Borges on vocals, Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on bass and guitar – but the set also features contributions from other Brazilian talents – including Chico Buarque on vocals, Ed Maciel on trombone, Paulo Jobim on guitar, and even Azimuth on a bit of grooves! As with the first set, the mix of modes is amazing – all the rich, soulful qualities of Milton Nascimento's best early work – but delivered in a magnificently collaborative mode that never wastes a minute of the extended double-length space of the album. As before, songs are penned by most of the collaborators – and titles include "E Dai", "Pao E Agua", "Canoa Canoa", "Credo", "Nascente", "Meu Menino", "Que Bom Amigo", and "Dona Olimpia".

✨✧ Buck OwensLive At The White House ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A special White House set, done for a private audience of president Lyndon Johnson and his staff! Buck Owens is Buck Owens even at the White House – doing raw Bakersfield honky honk with avuncular charm even in this most hallowed of venues! The record actually includes one studio track, the fun leadoff "You Ain't Gonna Have Ol' Buck To Kick Around No More", followed by Buck Owens and his Buckaroos turning the White House into the big ol' pillar-ed honky tonko for a little while! Includes surprisingly raucous versions "Act Naturally", "Together Again", "Love's Gonna Live Here", "Crying Time", "I've Got A Tiger By The Tail" and "Truck Driving Man", plus the Buckaroos-sung "Orange Blossom Special" (Don Rich), "When I Turn Twenty-One" (Buddy Alan) and more.

A special performance of the work featured on Moacir Santos' Ouro Negro album – featuring most of the tracks from the record played live, and some especially nice guest appearances from Ed Motta, Joao Bosco, and Djavan! The DVD is as respectful of the music as the original production of the album, and the set list features 19 tracks that include "Coisa No 2", "Odudua", "Mae Iracema", "Jequie", "Bluishmen", "Amalgamation", "Lamento Astral", and "Suk Cha". 107 minutes long, with titles in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

✨✧ VariousGuys Go Pop 1965 – 26 Obscure Teen/Pop/Rock & Roll Sides from 1965 ... CD
Teensville, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great guy pop from that seminal year of 1965 – a time when styles were changing and sounds were moving – and mixing up influences from different strands of rock, pop, and soul! The tunes here are definitely from the pop side of the spectrum, and most were singles on bigger labels of the time – but together, they've got a really special sort of charm – less of the innocence of years before, but also surprisingly free of headier themes in other music of the period – even on the few tracks here from artists who'd only flower more strongly in later years. As with other CDs on the Teensville label, the track selection is great – put together with a great ear for overlooked gems that only ever circulated on 45s – titles that include "I Adore You" by Tommy Regan, "My Hometown" by Jimmy Boyd, "Around The Corner" by The Duprees, "City Lights" by Jerry Naylor, "Knowing I Won't Go Back There" by Kenny Rankin, "Let's Pretend" by Ron Murphy, "You'll Come Crying To Me" by Ray Singer, "Say Goodbye To Donna" by Cory Wells & The Enemys, "Natalie Would" by Joe Perkins, "One Fine Day" by Ed Harden, "Don't Shut Me Out" by Ken Kirkham, "Don't Fool Yourself" by John Summers, and "Have I Stayed Away Too Long" by Robbie & The Revelations.

Introspective work from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – mostly a western-themed score, one that features spare tunes that focus strongly on his own ability to play guitar with a haunting, ethereal quality!

Mario Biondi & The High Five QuintetHandful Of Soul (special edition with bonus CD) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2006. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
An incredible full length debut from vocalist Mario Biondi – a jazz singer we'd rank right up there with the legendary Mark Murphy – supported here with great backings from the High Five Quintet! The grooves here are in a soaring, tightly-stepping style – very much the best club jazz mode of the contemporary European scene – with all-acoustic instrumentation, and rhythms that move along at a really great dancefloor pace! Mario's vocals are really unique too – with a little rasp that catches slightly, and really brings a timeless quality to his voice – mixing personal feeling into the lively numbers on the album, with an unexpected depth that really makes the album stand out from similar sessions of this type! There's echoes of hip vocal jazz work from years past by artists like The Peddlers, Bobby Cole, or Mark Murphy – and titles include "A Child Runs Free", "No Mercy For Me", "This Is What You Are", "I Can't Keep From Cryin Sometimes", "Rio De Janeiro Blue", "Handful Of Soul", "On A Clear Day", "Never Die", "No Trouble On The Mountain", "Slow Hot Wind", and "Gig".

Philips/Mercury (France), 1958. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99
Some of Serge Gainsbourg's first recordings – a mixture of left bank chic, jazzy rhythms, and some of the strangest songwriting to grace the Parisian scene! All titles feature great backings by Alain Goraguer, Serge's longtime musical partner, who brings in some wonderful elements to the songs – embellishing them with cool vibes, offbeat piano, snapping snare drum, and bubbling bass to match the oddly-crafted lyrics of the tunes. Titles include "Ronsard 58", "Ce Mortel Ennui", "Le Poinconneur Des Lilas", "Douze Belles Dans La Peau", "Charleston Des Demanageurs De Piano", and "L'Alcool". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSoul Emissaries – Super Funk – Rare Black American Music From The 1970s & 80s ... CD
BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great entry in the excellent Super Funk series – one that offers up cuts that are every bit as strong on their soulful vocals as they are their funky grooves! The track selection is wonderful – rare cuts from 45s, of the sort that funk diggers have been trading for years – plus some of those extra-special unreleased tracks, which the folks at Ace/BGP always seem able to dig up through their access to the vaults! The notes are filled with rare photos, label scans, and loads of information on the cuts – showing that their selection here wasn't just a random process – and despite the title, most tracks here are 70s numbers from the heavy funk years. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Billy Cee, "Love Highjacker" by George Jackson, "You Bring The Tears" by Sampson & Delilah, "Born To Live With Heartache" by Mary Lvoe, "Sweet Thang" by William Bostic, "Foolish Man (part 2)" by The Huck Daniels Co, "Work It Out" by Marcene Harris, "Jodine" by Earl Harris, "Funky Kingston" by Tribe, "Brother Jack" by The Funky Kids, "Forgotten" by Lamont Johnson, "Daddy Please Stay Home" by Obrey Wilson, and "So Fine" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

Peter BrendlerOutside The Line ... CD
Posi tone, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Bassist Peter Brendler is at the helm of the set, but we're especially enamored of the trumpet work here – played by Peter Evans on both standard and piccolo trumpet – the latter of which has this wonderfully personal sound! Almost all tunes are originals from Brendler, who turns out to be a pretty great writer – and sets up these strong showcases for Evans' trumpet lines, which seem to leap right out front even before his solos – when he's still sharing the lead with tenorist Rich Perry. Perry's pretty great, too – but there's a freshness to Evans' phrasing that's really great – bold at some minutes, with lots of offbeat twists and turns – and more fragile and honest on the piccolo trumpet tunes. Drummer Vinnie Sperrazza completes the group – and titles include "Blackout Reunion", "Drop The Mittens", "The Darkness", "Blanket Statement", "Lawn Darts", and a surprisingly nice cover of "Walk On The Wild Side".

Renata AdlerAfter The Tall Timber – Collected Nonfiction (hardcover) ... Book
New York Review Of Books, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A fantastic collection of nonfiction work from Renata Adler – a writer we first discovered through her inventive fiction, but one who's got a much greater history as a journalist – including decades of work for the New Yorker and other publications! This huge book brings together some of Adler's best pieces – articles handled with the same key eye and ear as her fiction, especially for the voices of the subjects involved – presented with dialogue that's extremely compelling in many of the works. The book spans the space of decades – and includes Adler on subjects as diverse as prostitution in LA, G Gordon Liddy, Civil Rights in Mississippi, the Six Day War, the Starr Report, violence in film, Biafra, and dozens of others – often snapshots both in history and American cultural struggle, captured beautifully by Adler's prose. The book is 514 pages, hardcover. Book

Fred Anderson21st Century Chase – 80th Birthday Bash Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD
Delmark, 2009. Used ... $9.99
Fred Anderson celebrates his birthday in the company of another avant tenor talent – reedman Kidd Jordan, who joins Anderson on the album's extended title improvisation – which is referred to as an update of the Dexter Gordon/Wardell Gray "Chase" battle of the late 40s! As you'd expect from Anderson, the sound here is much more outside – but definitely held to a strong legacy of tenor expression, especially the Chicago school from which Fred sprang. The rest of the group features Jeff Parker on guitar, Harrison Bankhead on bass, and Chad Taylor on drums – an in addition to the 50 minute "21st Century Chase", the album also features the extended "Ode To Alvin Fielder".

Edwin Astley/Tony CrombieInternational Detective/Man From Interpol ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A pair of cool British TV soundtracks – both of which feature an action jazz style to rival the best early work of Henry Mancini for the television screen! First up is lost spy soundtrack work from the British composer Edwin Astley – best known for his work on The Saint and Danger Man, but also sounding pretty darn great on the earlier program International Detective! The feel here is similar to some of Astley's better-known work – a more dramatic take on the crime jazz used on American TV in the late 50s – one that retains much of the instrumental elements of the sound, especially the well-placed use of saxes – but which also uses larger orchestrations to flesh out the music nicely, creating a stronger, more cinematic feel. The set features a total of 21 tracks from this short-lived show – and titles include "International Detective", "Murder Strip", "Theme For Larceny", "Night Patrol", "The Badge", "Manhunt", "Shock Tactics", "Murder Chase", and "Concerto In Law". Next is Man From Interpol – one of the best spy soundtracks we've ever heard – and one of the only scores we've ever seen from Brit jazz drummer Tony Crombie! The work was done a few years before Barry's famous Bond scores – but it's got a very similar feel, with lots of driving themes that make the best use of brazen horns, fast jazz, and beat-styled rhythms that crackle throughout the set. Most titles are pretty short, but really great – and nearly all of them feature some extremely strong jazz musicianship, in the manner of that used on the best American soundtracks by Mancini at the time! Titles include "Panic Station", "Interpol Cha Cha Cha", "Interpol Chase", "Samba De Janeiro", and "Blues Macabre". CD

Arnaldo BaptistaArnaldo Baptista Box (Loki/Elo Perdido/Faremos Uma Noitada Excelente/Singin Alone/Let It Bed) (5CD set) ... CD
Philips/Canal (Brazil), 1970s/1980s. Used 5CD ... $33.99
A special box set of work from this key member of Os Mutantes – one that looks at all the many facets of his compelling solo career! The first album in the set is the landmark Loki – an incredibly crazy and messed-up album of tracks cut by Arnaldo Baptista after the breakup of Os Mutantes. Baptista wrote all of the songs, except for one, which lists "Os Mutantes" in the credits – and the tracks feature his booze-drenched vocals right up front, with backing by piano, and some very theatrical arrangements that are quite different than the work of his earlier Tropicalia group. The record is tough to describe – sort of a mix of early 70s Euro singer/songwriter trends, particularly those of the Saravah scene – with maybe a bit of post-psyche rock, with piano as the most dominant instrument in the mix. There's a surprisingly personal feel to the whole thing – and titles include "Uma Pessoa So", "Nao Estou Nem Ai", "Desculpe", "E Facil", and "Navegar De Novo". The package also features Singin Alone, from 1982 – a very spare, very boozy solo LP by this ex-Mutantes member. Most of the tracks have him sitting at the piano, singing along in very raspy vocals, with most of the lyrics in English. The record is very different from the Mutantes records, but is an excellent bit of work in the rock singer-songwriter tradtion (which might here include Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits, as comparable examples.) We don't really know what Baptista's up to at this point, but the record is a haunting solo work, with many great tracks like "Jesus, Come Back To Earth", "I Fell In Love One Day", and "O Sol". Next is Elo Perdido – a collaboration with Patrulha Do Espacao - followed by Let It Bed, a more recent album that shows that Baptista had developed into a surprisingly sensitive songwriter. But maybe most amazing is Faremos Uma Noita Da Excelente – a live set from 1978 that also features work from Patrulha Do Espacao – and which wasn't issued at the time! CD

Jacek Bednarek & Krzystof P ZgrajaWalking Colour (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Poljazz/GAD (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
An album with a very evocative title – and a very evocative sound to match – just the bass of Jacek Benarek and the flute of Krzystof Zgraja – working together to make some hauntingly beautiful music! The approach might be considered jazz, but the sound is also quite loose and open – not in a free or outside sort of way, as the mode is tuneful and poetic – but there's also a quality that's very post-jazz too – a free-thinking, open-ended style of music that's very unique! The bass is often bowed, with nicely dark tones – which are offset by the lighter lines of the flute – especially when it's blown with this cool, compressed sort of sound. The whole thing's fantastic – more like some experimental jazz album from 1970 on the Vortex label than you'd guess from the date – and titles include "Flute Reflections", "La Concha", "Afrosfera", "Luz Blues", and "Walking Colour". CD also features 7 more bonus tracks from radio sessions! CD

Jane BirkinEx Fan Des Sixties (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About August 9, 2017
Very groovy solo work by the lovely Jane B – working here with a set of songs by Serge Gainsbourg, and sublime arrangements by Brit Easy/KPM maestro Alan Hawkshaw. The record's got a super-sexy sound, with a lot of whispered Frenchy tracks in a style that's similar to Serge's best work – especially on the duets that him and Jane recorded in earlier years. The songs are very cool, too, and have a dreamy spacey quality to them, with cool lyrics, as you might guess from titles like "Nicotine", "Classee X", "Apolcalypstick", and the groovy "Ex Fan Des Sixties", which is filled with dreamy references to big rock stars! CD
