Paul DesmondPure Desmond ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
An album of sublime understatement from alto genius Paul Desmond! Desmond was one of the few players who resisted the lure of the 70s electric CTI sound – and stuck pretty much in his usual bag of easy-going grooves, blowing alto with effortless ease, working here with a quartet that includes Ed Bickert on guitar, Connie Kay on drums, and Ron Carter on bass. The tracks are short, but have that magical Desmond quality to them – no tricks, no electric work, just pure and simple coolly blown jazz. Titles include "Everything I Love", "Just Squeeze Me", "I'm Old Fashioned", "Nuages", and "Why Shouldn't I". CD
(Part of the CTI 50th Anniversary Special Collection!)

✨✧ VariousSecao Ritmica – Instrumental Funk From 70s Brazil ... CD
Atemoya, 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fierce funk from 70s Brazil – tracks that easily challenge the same heavy vibe you'd know from American work in the funky 45 underground of the time, or even some of the bigger jazz funk releases of the decade! The artists here aren't inspired by the sound of bossa nova – and instead take keen inspiration from the American world of jazz and soul – which they then mix with occasional instrumental touches of their own region, and often use some wonderfully trippy production to put a really unique spin on the music! So even though these tracks are filled with heavy drums, riffing guitars, and killer keyboards – they've got a special sound that really sets them apart from the American music that first gave them inspiration – all of which makes for an incredibly fresh approach to funky styles. Titles include "Sultana" by Aquarius Band, "Eu Quero Levar Voce Pra Casa" by Ed Lincoln, "The King's Bounce" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Tio Macro" by Dom Salvador, "Kool & The Gang" by Cry Babies, "Metropole" by Cesar Mariano & CIA, "Rush" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Assalto" by Ze Rodrix, "Mr Funky Samba" by Banda Black Rio, and "Tipo Africa" by Brazil Very Happy Band. Also includes "Big Splash" by Som Orlando Silveira, "Ju Ju Man" by Hot Stuff Band, "Batucada Tropical" by Jose Prates, "Bridge" by We, "The Name Of The Game" by Os Tremendoes, and "Papa Jimmy" by Guilherme Coutinho.

GoblinSuspiria (40th anniversary edition – with DVD & bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy CD & DVD ... $19.99
One of the wildest 70s soundtracks by the Italian horror genius group Goblin – filled with a lot of weird distorted electronics, strangely recorded percussion, and oddly-tuned guitar parts and basslines! The overall feel still has the band's electric slightly funky sound firmly in place, but the presence of strange techniques makes the soundtrack one of their most interesting records – a really compelling chapter that also links their groundbreaking style to later genius from an 80s generation of composers! Claudio Simonetti plays lots of cool keyboards – from organ to moog to mellotron, mini moog, and more – and titles include "Suspiria", "Sighs", "Witch", "Black Forest", "Blind Concert", and "Death Valzer". Plus, this CD features 5 bonus tracks that were not issued at the time of the original release, for a total of 12 cuts that includes "Suspiria", "Witch", "Black Forest/Blind Concert", "Death Valzer", "Markos", and "Opening To The Sighs". Special edition features 9 bonus tracks – and also comes with a DVD film – Suspiria Behind The Soundtrack – which includes interviews with Dario Argento and Goblin. CD

Eddie ChambleeDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Blowing In Paris ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
One of the few later recordings we've seen from tenorist Eddie Chamblee – a player who first rose to prominence on the Chicago scene of the 50s, and one who's got a well-bitten style that creates a deeply soulful tone! Eddie's roots are more in swing than bop, but there's also a quality here that recalls some of the earliest soul jazz sides on Prestige – especially as Eddie's working in a combo that includes organ and vibes from Milt Buckner. Other players on the session include Earl Warren on alto sax, Arnett Cobb on tenor, and Buster Cooper on trombone – and titles include "New Green Onions", "Gone", "Jacques That's The Blues", "Pour Chamblee", "Soul Food Boogie", "A Pretty Song", and "Twenty Years After". CD features a number of bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ VariousLove's Been Good To Me – The Songs Of Rod McKuen ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's Rod McKuen on the cover – looking all broken-down and lonely (it's no surprise that Rod wrote the songs for the Charlie Brown musical in the 60s!) – and the image is a illustration of the special vibe of this set, which looks at the special blue-tinged material that McKuen contributed to the world of 60s pop! The package follows nicely in the tradition of Ace's other "songwriter" compilations – but, given the special style of Rod, it's also got a bit of a different vibe too – maybe not as immediately upbeat or confident as some of the others, with that inward-turning quality that McKuen often brought to his own recordings too. The range of artists is surprisingly big – and there's some real heavyweights here who work true magic with Rod's songs – on titles that include "Kaleidoscope" by Nancy Sinatra, "Doesn't Anybody Know My Name" by Waylon Jennings, "A Single Woman" by Nina Simone, "Lonesome Cities" by Frank Sinatra, "If You Go Away" by Dusty Springfield, "This Is Our House" by Shelby Flint, "Hello Heartaches" by Barbara Kay, "Love's Been Good To Me" by Tom Jones, "The World I Used To Know" by Glen Campbell, "The Wind Of Change" by Petula Clark, "The Importance Of The Rose" by The Limelighters, "One By One" by Barry McGuire, and "Ain't You Glad You're Living Joe" by Michael Sarne.

✨✧ VariousStudio One Dub Fire Special ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most mysterious Studio One compilations we've ever heard – and one of the grooviest, too! The cuts here are all lost dub tracks from the Studio One vaults – instrumental numbers served up by the likes of Sound Dimension, Brentford All Stars, Soul Defenders, New Establishment, and other groups – but with origins that are somewhat lost to the shifting sands of time, as are the actual instrumental details of each number! Yet the tunes work together beautifully – in a moody, slow-stepping vibe that has all the best Studio One hallmarks – and which resonates strongly with the hipper 70s elements of the label – all presented here in a unified blend by Dub Specialist. Tracks include variations of numbers originally from Alton Ellis, Roland Alphonso, Dennis Brown, Ken Boothe, and others – and titles include "Cairo", "Callie Roots", "Libra Dub", "Virgo Dub", "Nairobi", "Meet 7 Million", "Darker Black", "Rockers Hop", "Dakar", and "This Race".

Capitol/Apple, 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 24.98
Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades! Titles include "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "She's Leaving Home", "Lovely Rita", "When I'm Sixty Four", "A Day In The Life", and "Fixing A Hole". Plus, this very special anniversary edition features a whole new stereo mix from the original tapes – as well as never-heard session material! The package features 18 bonus tracks that include unusual takes of songs, a few instrumentals, and even one track from the album done with Indian instrumentation! 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

Bee Gees, Tavares, Yvonne Elliman, & OthersSaturday Night Fever (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
RSO/Capitol, 1977. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
Yes, it was a mega-hit – and yes, it was one of those records that everyone who lived through the 70s seemed to own at one time – but after all these decades, you can't deny the power of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack – especially for the way that it mixed club soul classics with new original material! Obviously, the Bee Gees cover placement make them big stars of the record – but the set's also got some great early disco gems – like "Open Sesame" by Kool & The Gang, "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps, "KJEE" by MFSB, "Calypso Breakdown" by Ralph MacDonald, "Fifth Of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman, "Boogie Shoes" by KC & The Sunshine Band, and "More Than A Woman" by Tavares. The Bee Gees reinvent themselves from the early days – and sing "Stayin Alive", "How Deep Is Your Love", "More Than A Woman", "Jive Talkin", "You Should Be Dancin", and "Night Fever" – and the set also features a few instrumentals by David Shire – "Manhattan Skyline", "Night On Disco Mountain" and "Salsation". 2CD deluxe edition features Serban Ghenea Mixes of "Stayin Alive", "Night Fever", "How Deep Is Your Love", and "You Should Be Dancin".

David BowieCracked Actor – Live Los Angeles 74 ... CD
Parlophone, 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
A fantastic live set from David Bowie – recorded on tour in 1974 for the Diamond Dogs album – and a very much at the height of his mid 70s powers! The album's very well-recorded, and the performances are great – not muddy mixes of hits, but razor-sharp readings that crackle with the excitement of the live arena – with some moments that stretch out nicely, and fantastic response from the audience – who are clearly thrilled to be part of this amazing moment. Bowie brings back a few moments from the Ziggy period, but he's also looking ahead with Thin White Duke energy too – as the group is tight and soulful, and features David Sanborn on alto, Mike Garson on keyboards, Earl Slick and Carlos Alomar on guitars, Pablo Rosario on congas, and backing vocals from Luther Vandross and Ava Cherry! Titles include an especially great version of "Aladdin Sane" – plus "1984", "Moonage Daydream", "Sweet Thing/Candidate", "Cracked Actor", "All The Young Dudes", "Jean Genie", "Time", "Diamond Dogs", "It's Gonna Be Me", "John I'm Only Dancing", "Changes", "Knock On Woood", and "Space Oddity".

Brother AhhDivine Music (Sea/Meditation/Searching) (3CD set) ... CD
Manufactured, 1978/1981/1985. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99
Three never-issued albums from Brother Ah – the enigmatic musician who may be known best for his work with Sun Ra, and his rare album on Strata East! Both of those moments date from earlier years, though – and past that time, Brother Ah was still working strongly on some amazing musical ideas of his own – work that includes the three albums presented in this package, which together really mark a shift for both Ah and some of his spiritual jazz contemporaries as the 70s moved on! The set begins with the beautiful set The Sea – recorded in 1978, with a long-flowing sound that's quite hypnotic, and very much in the spiritual territory of post-Coltrane material – including work by Trane's wife Alice. Brother Ah plays flute, in these fantastic lines that spin out slowly and echo strongly – amidst a mix of percussion, violin, mbira, bass, and drums – often used in ways that build beautifully, and which provide a great introduction to both the sung and spoken passages – presented by Abena Walker, Jeanean Gibbs, and Nataska Hassan Youssef. Titles include "Nuba", "Far Away", "The Village Drum", "Visoins", and "Africa We Are Your Children". Meditation is from a few years later, and has a different makeup – a sound that's much more spare overall, and which just features Brother Ah on flute, zither, and "nature sounds" – with help from Cleo Jomo Faulks on mbira and gong! The tunes have an earthier feel than you might guess from the album's title – still somewhat meditative, but also more open to the vibes of nature than the space of the studio – with moments that feel more more like the organic sounds of the young Moondog, or maybe some of Alice Coltrane's more home-made moments. Titles include "Stillness", "Spirit World", "Close Your Eyes & See", and "Song Of The Unseen". Last up is Searching – a record from 1985 that maybe moves the spiritual agenda from the political to the personal – that shift towards more interior solutions that some musicians took in the 80s, especially as funding for some kinds of spiritual jazz albums fell by the wayside, and some artists had to adapt to the new age underground. Yet although that shift might be in place here, Brother Ah is still as righteous as ever – just equipped with a slightly different voice – as he works alongside some electronics and percussion from Richard Ashman, and blows trumpet and a variety of flutes, while also handling percussion and harmonica in very spacious ways. The record is more about extended sound textures than individual instrumentation – and titles include "I Am", "Going Within", "Inner Voice", and "Know Thyself". First time release for all three records – presented in a really great package! CD

Ted DanielLoft Years ... CD
Ujamaa, 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Unreleased live material from trumpeter Ted Daniel – a hell of a talent on the New York scene of the 70s, but one who hardly ever got as much recorded exposure as some of his contemporaries! Ted's got this fantastic way of blowing – bold and free, but with a sense of structure too – almost more inheriting a legacy of 60s experimentalists like Ted Curson, or the later Lee Morgan – than graced with the style of some of his contemporaries on the loft jazz scene. This album definitely has Daniel at the top of his game – shaping sound with boundless imagination and energy – lots of strength, but also lots of focus – never too free for free's sake, and always strongly influenced by the pulse of group members Richard Pierce on bass and Tatsuya Nakamura on drums. In fact, the mix of bass, drums, and trumpet almost evokes some of the Sonny Rollins trio material – especially of the more outside variety – and Daniel also plays a bit of flugelhorn and French hunting horn too. Titles include "OC", "The Moor", "Jiblet", and "Congeniality". (And in case you're wondering, the material here is of similar vintage to that on the No Business album from Ted – but different recordings.) CD
(Disc is a CDr, packaged in a proper digipack sleeve.)

Ted DanielTed Daniel Solo – At Abbazia San Zeno Pisa, Italy ... CD
Ujamaa, 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
Ted Daniel may be one of the most compelling sound-shapers we've ever heard on the trumpet – a very under-acknowledged musician whose playing of the 70s and 80s continues to really grab us over the years! This unissued live set is from 1981, and it features Ted on a variety of horns – blowing in a special way that both links to more conventional trumpet modes, yet also shows a knowledge of the more open phrasing that some of his generation were using – like Lester Bowie or Leo Smith. Yet unlike some of those artists, Ted's performance, although free, is never that far from the more familiar roots of trumpet expression – a fantastic balance that really comes through beautifully in the music. There's a few unusual approaches here – one track features a trumpet played into a grand piano, another a flugelhorn through a phase shifter – but even these never go too far out. Titles include "Sunny Side Up", "Closer & Closer", "Vicissitudes Of A Lover", "Al Fine", "Ciao Bene", and "Deac's Ceremonial Testimonial". CD

Eddie Daniels & Roger KellawayJust Friends – Live At The Village Vanguard ... CD
Resonance, 1988. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A great performance from reedman Eddie Daniels and pianist Roger Kellaway – both musicians who maybe made some softer sounds over the years, but who have plenty of bite in the live setting on this date! If you only know those other modes of either artist, especially Daniels, the set will come as quite a surprise – as it features very long tracks, with nicely extended solos – all driven on strongly by the hip rhythm duo of Buster Williams and Al Foster, whose talents here really make the whole thing hit home! Two tracks stretch past the 15 minute mark – and all numbers are nice and long, with titles that include "Wolfie's Samba", "The Spice Man", "Just Friends", "Some O This & Some O That", and "Reverie For A Rainy Day". Issued here for the first time ever – in the best spirit of the other Resonance live albums! CD

Bam-Boo/Shout (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
A very cool, really rare soul album from the Philly scene – one that was written, produced, and arranged by Hammond organist Charles Earland – but which is a sweet soul album with a really great feel! There's definitely a touch of Earland's keyboard work on the set – especially some of those non-organ lines he brought to his records for Mercury – and there's a jazzy groove that really sets The Diddys apart from other east coast groups of the time – a more complex approach to rhythm and instrumentation that almost makes some of the tunes feel as if they came from the James Mason side of the spectrum! The whole thing's wonderful – as unique as it is rare – and titles include "Intergalactic Love Song", "Strange Love", "Your Love Is Like A See Saw Baby", "How Long Have You Loved Him", and "My Special Love". CD features lots of bonus tracks – alternate takes of nearly every number on the record! CD

Dori EdsonDori Edson ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99
A heartfelt singer from 60s Brazil – one who crafts his vocals with some of the soulful sensitivity that you might have found in the early work of Roberto Carlos before his trippier years – working here with arrangements that have some nice dark corners in the background! The lyrics are relatively straightforward, but the production and presentation have that depth that marked Brazilian records from the bossa years onwards – very unusual inflections to common instruments – which in this case seems to be especially true with the organ and flute that are used on the record, in ways that really pull out some of the bluer elements of their sound. Portinho handled the backings, and most tracks are originals by Dori – with titles that include "Seu Adeus", "O Amor Que Nos Fara Voltar", "Boa Noite", "Encantamento", "Fingimento", and "Perto Dos Olhos Longe Do Coracao".

Lee Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 17.98
A really fantastic album from the legendary Lee Fields – a set that blows us away every bit as much as his stellar My World album! Like that set, this one's got kind of a moody early 70s vibe – almost a New Jersey soul approach at times, but tinged with more southern modes – mixed with bits of Lee's more familiar funk at others – but often with this moody, almost mellow vibe that's such a fresh take on the territory that Fields has been exploring for years! Lee's lost none of the deep soul elements in his vocals, but there's a shift in arranging styles that's really great – and superbly delivered by the Expressions – a subtle darkness that shows why Fields is really one of the true greats out there in the contemporary funk underground – a true soul singer who's never content to just rest on the laurels of previous success. Titles include "Let Him In", "Lover Man", "Make This World", "How I Like It", "Special Night", "I'm Coming Home", and "Where Is The Love". CD

✨✧ Fleetwood MacFleetwood Mac (1975) (2CD expanded & remastered) ... CD
Reprise, 1975. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
The album that brought the excellent, but heretofore underappreciated duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks into the band – and pretty much changed the fabric of 70s rock! Older fans of the Peter Green and Bob Welch Brit blues eras of Fleetwood Mac may have been in for a shock initially, but this really is one of the best unpretentious pop rock albums of the 70s – they didn't get as hugely popular as they did by luck – the songs, energy and chemistry are really perfect. We may even love this one more than Rumours, especially the deeper cuts that haven't been overplayed over the years. Includes "Monday Morning", "Blue Letter, "Rhiannon", "Say You Love Me", "Warm Ways", "Over My Head", "I'm So Afraid" and more. 2018 expanded edition also includes the single versions of "Over My Head", "Rhiannon", "Say You Love Me" and "Blue Letter" and a full bonus CD of early versions of album tracks and live recordings from the Warner Bros. sound stage – 32 tracks on 2CDs!

Stunning duets between two musicians who could been seen as sonic specialists as much as jazz improvisers – guitarist Fred Frith and reedman Hans Koch – both working here together in a set that's awash with unusual textures and tones! The performance is live, and features Frith on electric guitar and various small objects – matched by amazing work from Koch on bass clarinet, tenor, and soprano – often with these unusual sounds that do a surprisingly wonderful job of matching the elements of the electric guitar – but always with a sense of tune, as well – that really special way that Koch can have of opening up a reed instrument to new possibilities, while still retaining its richer tones. Titles include "Strange Is The Night Where Black Stars Rise", "Immagine Prima", "Road Mirror Forest Sea", "Ever Wonder", "Exercises Chronologiques", and "Just A Crack". CD

The coolest grooves we've ever heard from percussionist Henri Guedon – a really wonderful blend of Latin, Caribbean, and jazz-based influences – all filtered into a very special sound! There's plenty of percussion at the core, but there's also some sweet keyboards too – used sparely, so that the album's not a funky electric one – but in just the right ways to bring in a cool sort of 70s funk touch to the whole record – almost in some of the ways you'd find with Nuyorican funk of the same time! Vocals are great, too – mostly in French – but the instrumental element is what really moves us – and it moves us plenty! Titles include "Brujeira", "Tou Patou Feme", "Guajira Contestation", "Bomba Miscien", "Vulcano", and "Marcel Song". CD

Haircut 100Paint & Paint (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Polydor/Cherry Pop (UK), 1984. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A great second chapter from Haircut 100 – a set that's not nearly as well-remembered as the group's debut, but which still has them very much at the top of their game! By the time of this set, former lead singer Nik Heyward had moved onto become a solo act – but, if anything, that makes for more of a shift towards a greater presence of the group's energy – especially the mix of British pop and jazzier elements that always made them one of the most charming overseas acts of the early 80s! Tunes are catchy, but maybe a bit more interesting than the usual commercial fluff of the day – and there's a style of songwriting and presentation here that almost seems to point the way towards some of the more sophisticated UK pop of the Sarah Records scene. Titles include "40 40 Home", "Fish In A Bowl", "Immaterial", "So Tired", "Hidden Years", "Infatuation", "Prime Time", "High Noon", and "Benefit Of The Doubt". Special 2CD version features 19 bonus tracks – including "Too Up Two Down (7" version)", "Evil Smokestacking Baby", "After It's All Been Said & Done", and lots of remixes of tracks from the album – including some early development mixes of the tracks, and a few BBC David Jensen Session performances!

Freddie HubbardCTI Years 1970 to 1973 ... CD
Hi Hat, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Not a collection of CTI label recordings from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard – as you might expect from the title – and instead a collection of rare radio performances from the same time, but with Freddie opening up in very different ways! Some of the tunes here are from CTI albums, but the performances are often quite different – and often very open, with some key solo moments that also include bass and drum solos – not just the leader's trumpet! Players shift a bit over the course of the four different performances, all of which are very well-recorded – and musicians include Junior Cook on tenor and flute on three of the four; George Cables on Fender Rhodes on three, with Cedar Walton on acoustic piano on a fourth; and drummers who include Louis Hayes, Lenny White, and Ralph Penland. The whole thing's a great lost treasure – and has moments that also hint at the direction that Freddie would take in the 80s, especially his superb live work from the early part of that decade – on titles that include "Spirits Of Trane", "Red Clay", "Calypso Fred", "Ugetsu", "First Light", "The Intrepid Fox", "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey", and "Betcha By Golly Wow".
