Peven EverettSpeed Of Light ... CD
Studio Confessions, 2002. Used ... $11.99
Excellent work from Peven Everett – another one of his home-made underground soul CDs, issued by Peven himself as a big "F#$% You" to the major labels that have screwed around with him in the past! The CD is a brilliant mix of soul, jazz, house, and touches of Afro-centric rhythms – crafted in a swirling mix that dips back 30 years into the history of soul, yet still points the way towards a richly positive future – sounding a heck of a lot more "real" than just about anyone else we can think of on the market today, and showing Everett as a burgeoning soul genius – on a par with D'Angelo, Norman Harris, Donnie Hathway, and, dare we say it, Marvin Gaye. Tracks include "Testin Me", "Stroll By The River", "Run Around", "One More Time", "Puerto Rico", and "Your Letter". 13 tracks in all! CD
(Note that each of these is handmade by Peven – so that the items will have a self-produced, homemade look to them that differs from CD to CD – although the music is great, and that production makes these one of a kind items!)

Luiz BonfaO Violao E O Samba ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1962. Used ... $6.99
An early gem from Luiz Bonfa – one of the first really strong albums from this master of Brazilian guitar! The music is quite lively, without the sleepy quality that you find on some of Bonfa's other records – and Luiz' guitar is backed by a nice little combo that really keeps up to his speed – not entirely bossa jazz, but still with a similar feel! Tracks have a lively rhythm, with occasional vocals, and some nice flute solos from time to time – and the whole thing sounds a bit like an early Baden Powell session – with a clarity and brilliance throughout. Titles include "Amor Em Brasilia", "Amor De Solidao", "Murmurio", "Inquietacao", "Voce Chegou Sorrindo", and "Saudade De Bahia". CD

✨✧ Gil EvansGil Evans & Ten ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... $6.99
Fantastic early work from Gil Evans – emerging here in this early session as an already far-thinking modernist. The tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still contains plenty of rich new ideas. Players include Louis Mucci, John Carisi, Steve Lacy, Willie Ruff, Paul Chambers, Nick Stabulis, and "Zeke Tolin" on alto, who is certainly a more famous player under a fake name. Titles include "Ella Speed", "Big Stuff", "Jambangle", "Nobody's Heart", and "Remember". CD

Gloria GaynorGlorious (with bonus track) ... CD
Polydor/Big Break (UK), 1977. Used ... $6.99
A great meeting of 70s disco talents here – as both Gregg Diamond and Joe Beck both work with Gloria Gaynor on this sweet little set – with an approach that makes for some of her nicest music of the time! Diamond's tunes have a definite Bionic Boogie feel – sharp-edged, but never too commercial, and with a nicely thoughtful approach to the rhythms overall – especially when they step along in a sweet midtempo groove! Beck's style is a bit more full, and almost in a Kudu Records mode – that style used a bit by Esther Phillips when she was picking up speed more in the 70s – a diva mode that's equally great for Gloria's magnificent vocals. Titles include "Why Should I Pay", "As Time Goes By", "Most Of All", "We Can Start All Over Again", "So Much Love", "This Side Of The Pain", and "Sweet Sweet Melody". CD features a bonus track – "Most Of All (single version)". CD

Michael JacksonBad (special edition) ... CD
Epic, 1987. Used ... $4.99
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". CD

✨✧ Elvin JonesAnd Then Again/Midnight Walk ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1965/1967. Used ... $9.99
2 rare albums by Elvin Jones – both excellent, and both among some of his best work ever as a leader! And Then Again is a very nice session from the mid 60's that features arrangements by Melba Liston. Jones brings in some excellent accompaniment from brothers Thad and Hank, who show their modernist tendencies more strongly here than in other work from the time – and he's also joined by Charles Davis, Don Friedman, and Frank Wess. Most of the tracks on the album – such as "Azan", "Elvin Elpus", and "All Deliberate Speed" – are tightly snapping Melba Liston arrangements with a good mix of bop and modernist ideas, but one track – "And Then Again" – is a very nice improvised piece by the group. Midnight Walk has Elvin Jones playing with Dollar Brand on piano on a number of cuts, and with a sound that's a lot more like some of Brand's Afro-grooves than it is like some of Jones' other straight jazz albums. The highlight here is "Midnight Walk", but there's loads of other originals – including many written by Thad Jones, who's also on the set, and who plays in a surprisingly open-ended way that differs greatly from his 50's Blue Note recordings. Other titles include "H.M on F.M", "The Juggler", "All Of Us", and "Cross Purpose". CD

✨✧ Junior ManceJunior Mance Trio At The Village Vanguard (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jazzland (Japan), 1961. Used ... $18.99
A firey little trio session from Junior Mance – one that features tracks taken at a pace that's even more uptempo than usual, and which really pushes his skills on the keys! The speed of the set is by no means a detriment to Mance's soulful playing – and if anything, the record stands as one of his most compelling from the period – not just a batch of soul jazz styles that were soon becoming cliches, but a vibrant example of the full range of Mance's talents, caught in a very spontaneous setting. Trio members include Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Smokey Blues", "Bingo Domingo", "Looptown", "Letter From Home", and "Girl Of My Dreams". CD

✨✧ David BowieLow (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Ryko, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". Features great bonus tracks – "Some Are", "Sound & Vision (rmx)", and "All Saints". CD

✨✧ Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Contemporary (Japan), 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Dahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl".

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronFree Will (Remastered & Expanded) ... CD
Bluebird, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that stands as one of his greatest statements from the 70s! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry – the latter from his roots as a writer in touch with the streets, and the former part of a brilliant new direction that he was taking on the Flying Dutchman label. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The Middle Of Your Days", "Speed Kills", and "Did You Hear What They Said?". Side two moves over to a much sparer sound – and has Gil reciting some of his poetry with very heavy percussion, and a very righteous approach. The wisdom and knowledge of those pieces is a perfect example of the kinds of issues that were haunting black America in the early 70s – especially on the tracks "No Knock", "The King Alfred Plan", and "Sex Education: Ghetto Style". CD version features 8 bonus tracks – alternate versions of some of the heavier-duty tunes on the album, some of which are quite different than the originals! Also includes new notes and photos! CD

✨✧ John WilliamsBlack Sunday ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
John Williams tense score for the great 70s film Black Sunday – a movie that almost makes us get a bit nostalgic about the simplicity of terrorism in the old days! There's none of the later Williams sense of thematic energy here – as most tunes are nicely understated, and have this spooky, taught sort of feel – numbers that really recreate that quiet sense of drama that made 70s thrillers like this so wonderful. This new CD edition of the soundtrack features a huge amount of music from the film – nearly an hour – plus another 9 minutes of rare alternates and source music too – all wrapped together with an excellent booklet, in the usual Film Score style! Titles include "The Test", "Underway", "Air Chase", "The Explosion", "Farley's Dead", "The Blimp & The Bomb", "Passed", "Commandos Arrive", and "Speed Boat Chase". CD

✨✧ Illinois Jacquet & Ben WebsterKid & The Brute ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title's a bit misleading – as a number of the tracks on here were recorded by Jacquet, and Webster only sat in on two longer jamming numbers – "I Wrote This For The Kid" and "The Kid & The Brute". Not that that's a problem – as those long numbers take up a good portion of the record, and are really driving numbers that have some conga in the rhythm section, which makes for a lively kick that really drives the tracks. The conga also surfaces in "Mambocito Mio", a Latin jammer that moves at the best cubop speed – and other tunes include "Saph", "September Song", and "Jacquet's Dilemma". 15 tracks in all on this limited edition CD.

✨✧ Wynton MarsalisCiti Movement ... CD
Columbia, 1993. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A nice little take on the "city symphony" mode that was big in American music a few decades back – served up by the Wynton Marsalis Septet of the early 90s, with decidedly modern touches! The double-length album's a three-tiered affair – with part one standing out as Wynton's extended "Cityscape" – a tribute to New York, done in styles that range from mellow and contemplative, to more hustling and bustling, in true speed of the city. Next up is another suite of tracks titled "Transatlantic Echoes" – work that's still jazz-based, but with a nod to African roots in some of the percussion and phrasing. Last up is "Some Present Moments Of The Future" – the final suite of the album, and one that almost echoes some of the rootsier modes explored by Wynton in his southern trilogy of a few years before. Players include Wynton on trumpet, Todd Williams on tenor and soprano sax, Wes Anderson on alto, Wycliffe Gordon on trombone, Reginald Veal on bass, Herlin Riley on drums, and Eric Reed on piano – and the album also features some guest tenor from Herb Harris and a bit of piano by Marthaniel Roberts.

✨✧ Alan SilvestriChips Season 2 – 1978/1979 ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1978/1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ponch! John! Come back – all is forgiven! We've always remembered Chips as one of the clunkier cop shows of the late 70s – but this sweet little soundtrack completely redeems the show – a set of funky numbers penned by Alan Silvestri, all with an upbeat, clubby sort of groove! The music's right up there with that sweet 70 stretch when cop/crime modes shifted from jazz and funk to a more disco-oriented style – an uptempo groove that was perfect for the high speed action of the motorcycle cops on the show, but which also stands beautifully here on its own – in longer renditions than were ever used on TV, often with some really cool keyboard parts in the mix. The set features almost 80 minutes of music, plus great notes too – and titles include "Supercycle", "Return Of The Turks", "Disaster Squad", "Neighborhood Watch", "High Flyer", and "High Explosive".

✨✧ VariousCinecocktail 2 – The Second Chance (with bonus remix CD) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual little collection of Italian soundtrack grooves – one that goes for the "whole picture" of the listening experience, in order to create a mini-movie in sound! Things start out spare and jazzy – with a flavor that's like some of the best Italian jazz scores of the early 60s, but a bit more contemporary – with standout lead lines on piano, trumpet, saxophone, and organ – all to set a very groovy mood at the start. As the collection moves on, things get a bit more upbeat and funky – hitting a more familiar Italian 70s mode, which really picks up speed near the end of the set! The package is a great companion to the first volume, but offers a very different sound overall – kind of a history of Italian soundtrack grooves in 21 tracks – over 70 minutes of music, packaged in a very nice tri-fold cover! A good number of the titles are in versions that have never appeared elsewhere before – and titles include "Satanic (seq 20)" bu Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini, "La Ragazza Dalle Mani Di Corallo (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio, "Diamond Trumpet" by Francesco De Masi, "Kriminal (seq 28)" by Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini, "Yeti" by Sante Maria Romitelli, "Funky Disco Soul" by Sante Maria Romitelli, "Amore All'Arrabbiata (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio, "Sliding Crime" by Gudio & Maurizio De Angelis, "Tic Nervoso (inst)" by Berto Pisano, "Gangster Story" by Berto Pisano, and "L'Isola Delle Svedesi (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio. And if that's not enough, the whole thing also offers a bonus disc of 6 more jazzy remixes by Francesco Santucci – versions of "Diamond Trumpet", "Sliding Crime", "Yeti", "Fay", and "Gangster Story".

Clarke Boland Big Band/Jimmy GiuffreHandle With Care/Western Suite ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1958/1962. Used ... $6.99
Two rare jazz classics from the Atlantic catalog! Handle With Care is one of the first recordings by the legendary Clark-Boland Big Band – and although it was a pre-MPS session released by Atlantic, all the core elements of the band's classic sound and style are present. Gigi Campi produced and supervised the session, and the group includes CBBB stalwarts like Benny Bailey, Derek Humble, Jimmy Woode, Shahib Shihab, Idrees Sulieman, and Fats Sadi. Tracks include "Long Note Blues", "Speedy Reeds", "Sonor", and "Om Mani Padme Hum". Western Suite is an incredible record from modernist reedman Jimmy Giuffre – who's playing here in his classic piano-less trio format, in a group with Jim Hall on guitar and Bob Brookmeyer on trombone. The group was perhaps his best, and they achieve a perfect blend of free-flowing improvised lines, while still managing to retain a jazz swing (something that didn't always happen on Giuffre's other records). The centerpiece of the set is the extended "Western Suite" (don't be fooled by the name, because there's no sort of "Country & Western" tinge to it), and the record also includes beautiful long versions of "Blue Monk" and "Topsy". The whole thing is one of the most amazing jazz records ever recorded, and has an insane array of tones, colors, and sound shapes. CD

✨✧ Charles EarlandIntensity (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1972. Used ... $4.99
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

An incredible record by Lenny Tristano – 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" – just to prove that the whole thing was simply a product of Tristano's legendary prowess on the piano! 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

TCB (Switzerland), 1970/1971/1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Vintage 70s Swiss radio recordings by American jazz legends Sahib Shihab, Art Farmer and Clifford Jordan – each performing a few numbers with the excellent, ever-adaptable Jazz Live Trio! The set kicks off with a 1970 performance featuring Sahib Shihab out front. First is a laidback, moody take on "You're Mine You", which is a really nice showcase for Sahib's baritone sax in a lighter mood. Next up, though is a playful, loose and energetic take on Monk's "Well You Needn't" – and the trio shines pretty brightly on this one – with a lot of heat coming from Klaus Koenig's piano, Peter Frei's bass and Alex Bally's drums. Next is a pair of pieces with Art Farmer in 1977 – Farmer's flugelhorn perfectly leading Duke Ellington's "In A Sentimental Mood" and speeding things up nicely with Sonny Rollins's "Oleo". The CD closes with a trio of numbers featuring tenor great Clifford Jordan in 1970: "Japanese Dreams", "Inward Fire" and a brilliant reading of "Bags' Groove" to close – with some of the best soloing on the entire set. A real gem in the Swiss Radio Days Jazz Live Concert Series – among the very best of them, actually! CD
