Michael JacksonBad – 25th Anniversary Edition (3CDs/DVD – includes Live At Wembley) ... CD
Epic, 1987. Used 3CD & DVD ... $14.99
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". Second CD is filled with great bonus material – a huge amount of tracks that include "Free", "Song Groove", "I'm So Blue", "Don't Be Messin Round", "Streetwalker", "Fly Away", "Price Of Fame", "Toto Mi Amor Eres Tu", "Je Ne Vieux Pas La Fin De Nous", "Bad (Afrojack rmx)", "Speed Demon (Nero rmx)", and "Bad Afrojack club)". Also features the CD and DVD of Michael Jackson's massive performance at Wembley Stadium in 1988 – part of the Bad world tour,a nd filled with great performances! CD

Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins Plus 4 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956. Used ... $11.99
A crackling bit of hardbop from Sonny Rollins – and a session that has Sonny playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown group that included Bud Powell's brother Richie on piano! Sonny had already made a strong name for himself on albums issued under the Roach/Brown tag at the time, and here the group returns the favor by allowing Sonny to lead, and by giving him a good deal of time in the spotlight! Rollins' solo ability is risen to a razor-sharp level for the set – really getting fire, and managing to invent at a speed and sharpness that's simply amazing. Titles include Sonny's classic reading of "Pent-up House", plus "Valse Hot", "Kiss & Run", and "Count Your Blessings". CD

RotomagusSky Turns Red – The Complete Anthology ... CD
Lion, Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
Rare rock from Rotomagus – a heavy group from France – the complete discography of the group, and a completely fresh discovery to us! The sound is loose, ragged and raw on the unreleased album demo that's covers the first half of the anthology – which only enhances the power of it. Singer Alain Fontaine sings, screams and wails in English – fascinatingly, he is a good singer, but shrieks his head off with abandon on some killer songs here. The band is just as strong, showing command of rhythm and with strong solos as well as bashing away with intensity. In some ways, it's a late 60s-style heavy psych album, but played at breakneck speed, rugged soul and with little effort to tidy anything up. The second half is much different – featuring singles the group cut for Polydor, CBS and other labels – far less raucous and more French pop psych-indebted, and those numbers are great, too! They work as well in frenzy as they do with trippy harmonies – very impressive! Titles include "Laureline", "Little Green Man", "Fighting Cock", "Shout Now", "I Dig Life", "The Flufluting Flatmul" and more from the unreleased demo album, plus the rare singles "Le Haut Du Pave", "Nevada", "Eros", "Madame Wanda", "Laureline", "The Sky Turns Red" and more.

New Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionAbsolutely Free (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Ryko, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most mindblowing pop culture pastiches of the 60s – a record that's as absolutely mad as it is absolutely free – and proof that a whole new generation of musicians like Zappa were using the studio like an instrument itself! This is work that could have never existed away from record – as the mix of sounds, moods, and music comes together with a maddening frenzy – hardly the languid speed you'd expect from the early years of hippiedom – and instead, an inspirational stream of styles and ideas delivered with trademark Zappa dexterity and wit! The album's divided into two long passages – "Absolutely Free" and "The MOI American Pageant" – with tracks that include "Plastic People", "Amnesia Vivace", "The Duke Regains His Chops", "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Son Of Suzy Creamcheese", "Status Back Baby", and "The Duke Of Prunes".

New Keni StevensYou ... CD
FTG, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
Slow-stepping soul from Keni Stevens – an artist who always seems to have a better way with a ballad than he does with a groove! The music here is often nicely laidback – late nite stuff, but in an 80s sort of way – given that most of the rhythms and instrumentation are electric, and the vocals get a bit of processing in the mix. That doesn't mean that the sound is cold, though – as Keni more than warms things up with his solid lyrical approach – spreading soul across the top in a nicely easygoing mode that really fits the speed of the tunes. Titles include "Work Me Up", "Hurt This Way", "Who's Been Loving You", "I Bleed For You", "Anne", "You", and "24 7 365". CD

Clarke Boland Big BandHandle With Care ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1962. Used ... $11.99
Great work by this legendary hard swinging band – an early 60s American album issued on Atlantic Records, in the years before the Clark Boland Band's legendary run on MPS! Despite the early date, the album's got all the core elements of the band's sound in place – soaring rhythms, sharp-edged frontlines, and some great solo work by players who include Benny Bailey, Derek Humble, Jimmy Woode, Shahib Shihab, Idrees Sulieman, and Fats Sadi – coming together in a brilliant trans-Atlantic meeting of jazz talents! Tracks include "Long Note Blues", "Speedy Reeds", "Sonor", and "Om Mani Padme Hum". CD

Charles EarlandIntensity (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1972. Used ... $6.99
A wonderfully-named session – as Charles Earland plays here with an intensity that's undeniable! The album marks a key shift for Earland – one away from the more standard soul jazz mode, into a realm of looser, freer rhythms that really take off from the start – knowing no end on the longer tunes, and really letting Charles run to the skies on the keys of the Hammond! The group on the set is a larger than usual one – with a trumpet section that includes Lee Morgan and Virgil Jones; reed players that include Billy Harper and Hubert Laws; and a double-edged rhythm line forged through the drums of Billy Cobham and the conga of Sonny Morgan – often working alongside each other to really widen the groove! The sound is remarkable – tight, but never slick – and in a sophisticated groove that could hardly be hinted at from Earland's earlier work. All tracks are long, and titles include "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", "Morgan", "Cause I Love Her", and "Happy Cause I'm Going Home". CD also brings in 2 more bonus tracks – both in a similar mode, from the album Charles III – "Lowdown" and "Speedball". CD

Mos DefEcstatic ... CD
Downtown, 2009. Used ... $8.99
Mos Def's first for Downtown after a weird few years on Geffen that saw many a bumped street date, the hit & miss New Danger, and finally, the semi aborted release of the controversial True Magic – back with a top shelf, excellent album in 2009's The Ecstatic! It may not be Black Star or Black On Both Sides, but The Ecstatic is absolutely strong stuff, and to be honest, much better than we would have expected – even if we knew he had great hip hop left in him! The beats are compelling, unpredictable, and steeped in abstract global funk that would sound at home on Stones Throw – some of the beats are literally Stones Throw, given Madlib's Beat Konducta and Oh No's Oxperimental sounds to be found. If we weren't already loving it, Slick Rick drops an unforgettable guest appearance on the the moody "Auditorium", Georgia Anne Muldrow does her inimitable thing on "Roses", and Talib Kweli rhymes on "History". Mos rhymes skillfully throughout, and with an infectious immediacy, as if he dropped records this tight all the time. Sadly, he doesn't, so this one's all the more rewarding! Other tracks include "Twilite Speedball", "Revelations", "Pretty Danger", "Quiet Dog", "The Embassy", "Wahid", "Priority" and more. CD

New All NaturalSecond Nature ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second full length by Capital D and Tone B Nimble as All Natural! Second Nature is jammed packed with 19 tracks featuring the cream of the Chicago underground and other guests including JUICE, Slug, Lone Catalysts, Mr. Greenweedz and others. The no-nonsense, sturdy beats and production is the most unifying factor here – with Capital D's unwavering devotion to Islam sometimes contrasting sharply with some of the more bragging and boasting of some of the guest MCs. Still, at it's best Second Nature is lyrically uncompromising and has an outlook as fresh as any new hip hop we've heard in a while. Tracks include "Second Nature", "Think Again", "The Next Mile", "Vegetarian", "Ill Advisory", "Stellar", "Uncle Sam", "Here's The Hate On Chicago", "Renaissance", "Godspeed", and "Future Is Now". CD has four extra tracks. CD

New SpeedometerShakedown ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Long-running UK funk & soul combo Speedometer – still flooring it the The Shakedown – and bring it with a wider scope than ever before! The group has more vocal numbers in the set, and why wouldn't they when they have the lovely and soulful Rita Currie and guests of the caliber of funky diva/James Brown collaborator Martha High! The range of instrumental styles has been broadened, too. You've got your horn-heavy funky soul stormers, Hammond groovers and hard charging Latin funk jams with Snowboy on the timbalas, bongos and bata drums. Great stuff all around! Titles include "Again And Again", "La Nuea Manera", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", "Orisha", "The Shakedown", "Rubberneck", "Dragging Me Down", "Kool To Be Uncool" and more. CD

New Lennie TristanoLennie Tristano/New Tristano ... CD
Atlantic, 1955/1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-length set of work from one of the greatest pianists of the 50s – both of his Atlantic albums together on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Lennie Tristano, from 1955 – darkly imaginative work from the great Tristano – and one of the few full albums he ever cut as a leader! The record features the incredible track "Turkish Mambo" – which has Tristano overdubbed 3 times in this dark modal way that's totally amazing, and which will hook you into his playing immediately! A number of other tracks feature a quartet with Lee Konitz – always a good match for Tristano – and a few others have a great trio that's completed by Peter Ind and Jeff Morton. Tracks include "Requiem", "East 32nd", "You Go To My Head", and "Line Up". New Tristano is an incredible record by Lenny – one that features him playing solo piano, but in a way that's so inventive, so creative, so pyrotechnic, that Atlantic Records had to include text on the back cover saying "No use is made of multi-tracking, over-dubbing, or tape-speeding." The album's also one of the last (the last?) that Lennie ever cut – and although many other players are kind of faltering in last sessions like this, Lennie's sounding better than ever – ready to take on a realm of new challenges in the 60s. Titles include "Love Lines", "G Minor Complex", "Becoming", and "Deliberation". CD

New Vandermark 5Beat Reader ... CD
Atavistic, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Searing work from the Vandermark 5 – just the kind of set that shows why these guys are have been one of the greatest things going on the US jazz scene for many years! In addition to Ken Vandermark's always-great work on reeds – baritone sax and clarinets this time around – the group's got a rock-solid rhythm section in drummer Tim Daisy and bassist Kent Kessler, both of whom play with a tremendous sense of power and timing, yet never in ways that are too-jamming or too over the top. The cello and light electronics of Fred Lonberg-Holm rounds out a slightly gentler side of the group's sound, and provides some great tonal colors too – and Dave Rempis joins Vandermark as the second reedman, blowing tremendous tenor and alto lines with a great sense of shape. Titles include "Friction", "Speedplay", "Signposts", "New Acrylic", "Any Given Number", and "Desireless". CD

New VariousSeven Heven – Perfect Little Slice Of Soul, Funk & Funky Jazz From The 21st Century ... CD
BBE (UK), 2000s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Modern funky soul in a terrific compilation on BBE – featuring great stuff from James Taylor Quartet, Timo Lassy, Speedometer, Soopasoul, Filthy Six, Ligua Franca, Milano Jazz-Dance Combo and more – fantastic stuff released in the past decades on funky 45s by a wonderful international roster of neo classic combos! The unifying factor to the material here is a devotion to timeless sounds born of the 60s & 70s, but it's got pretty far reach – from rawish funky soul, to club jazz, to Latin soul and beyond. Great stuff released as singles by some of our favorite contemporary labels like Freestyle, Record Kicks, Blow It Hard and Wah Wah – plus some number we're only now being hipped to! 20 tracks on the CD version: "Senouci Parts 1 & 2" by James Taylor Quartet, "The Time Is Right For Love (45 Swingo-O Remix)" by Gizelle Smith & The Mighty Mocambos, "The More I Look At You" by Timo Lassy feat Jose James, "Lover And A Friend" by Speedometer, "Agua Y Luz" by Sasso, "Chips & Salsa" by Lil' Dave, "Get Carter" by Filthy Six and more.

New Cory Wright OutfitApples + Oranges ... CD
Singlespeed, 2013. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The title's a great one for this project – especially if you understand the older reference of the saying – as the quintet manages to keep all the separate instruments at a level that's very distinct and individual, yet somehow creates a musical space of comparison as well! Cory Wright's bass clarinet and tenor, the alto and flute of Evan Francis, and trombone of Rob Ewing each maintain a very distinct quality in the performance – sometimes at a level that's even different from a rhythmic perspective – yet they really find a way to resonate together strongly, in some sort of jagged variant on counterpoint. Likewise, the bass of Lisa Mezzacappa and drums of Jordan Glenn often go off and do their own thing – yet the whole recording never has the feeling of free jazz, nor chaos. Titles include "Eyedrop", "The Sea & Space", "St Bruno's Preview", "Low Impact Critter", and "Freddie Awaits The Sleepers". CD

The first, and arguably the best, of John Zorn's Naked City albums. The sound is extremely intense, and represents a blinding blend of influences, most of which Zorn had been showcasing in more easy going settings on previous albums.

Hard to find on vinyl, and with the titles "Demon Sanctuary", "Speedball", "James Bond Theme", "Ingenous Ejaculation", "I Want To Live", and "Latin Quarter". CD

New Ernie WilkinsTop Brass Featuring The 5 Trumpets ... CD
Savoy, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hard-swingin tracks from Ernie Wilkins – one of the most soulful arrangers of his time, working here in a wonderful all-star session from the 50s! The album's definitely got the "top brass" promised in the title – a lineup that features Donald Byrd, Ray Copeland, Idrees Sulieman, and Joe Wilder on trumpets – all working at a level that allows plenty of space for well-blown solos, but tied up in tighter ensemble formation overall – all with that Wilkins sense of swing that really set Ernie apart at the time. Rhythm is from a trip that includes Hank Jones on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Kelly Clarke on drums – and titles include "58 Market Street", "Trick Or Treat", "Speedway", "Dot's What", "Top Brass", "Imagination", and "Willow Weep For Me". CD features 2 bonus tracks: "Blues In 6/4" and "Trumpets All Out". CD
