✨✧ WingsWings At The Speed Of Sound ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly the last truly wonderful Wings album of the 70s – a monumental crossover record that smoothed out their groove a bit more and delivered some wonderful hits! Denny Laine is still in the group at this point, and titles include the classics "Let Em In" and "Silly Love Songs" – plus "Cook Of The House", "San Ferry Anne", "Warm & Beautiful", "Wino Junko", and "The Note You Never Wrote".

John ColtraneLegacy (4CD set) ... CD
Impulse, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4 CDs ... $16.99
A fantastic set of work by John Coltrane – a 4CD box set that's a lasting tribute to his genius, featuring mostly music from his best years at Impulse Records, plus selected bits from earlier years! The set features tracks selected by Ravi Coltrane, plus bonus material from the Coltrane family, an essay by Amiri Baraka, and some previously unissued material (where do they keep turning up all this stuff, anyway?) The package starts with Trane's more down to earth years, then picks up speed nicely as his music soared to the heavens on spiritual wings. Titles include "Nature Boy (first version)", "Venus", "Compassion", "Stablemates", "A Love Supreme (part 1)", "Offering", "Iris", "After The Rain", "Naima", "Miles Mode", "Liberia", "Village Blues", "Up Gainst The Wall", "Serenity", "Two Bass Hit", "One UP One Down (long version)', and "I Want To Talk About You".

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

Wynton MarsalisCiti Movement ... CD
Columbia, 1993. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
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.

Giorgio MoroderFrom Here To Eternity ... CD
Oasis/Repertoire, 1977. Used ... $5.99
A classic from the electro maestro – arguably the greatest American album from Giorgio Moroder! The set's got a great mix of disco and electronics that was years ahead of its time – and is surprisingly fresh and edgey, despite Moroder's fame over the years. Electronics are really at the core of all the tunes – bubbling, dipping, crackling around the groove – with only slight additional disco touches – and an overall sound that leans much more closely towards Kraftwerk than it does other work on the Casablanca label at the time. And we're really not fooling about this one – because it's got a raw electro vibe that still holds up beautifully, and which is more and more of a delight the farther we get from the 70s. Titles include "From Here To Eternity", "Lost Angeles", "Faster Than The Speed Of Love", "First Hand Experience In Second Hand Love", "I'm Left You're Right She's Gone", and "Too Hot To Handle". CD

✨✧ Dennis Farnon & His OrchestraCaution! Men Swinging ... CD
RCA/BMG (Spain), 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty of men swinging here – a great west coast lineup working under the leadership of Dennis Farnon, almost with the feel of RCA jazz soundtrack work of the time! The arrangements are pretty lively throughout – quite bold at points, and filled with nice colors – never too modern to lose their swing, yet always with a thoughtful sort of composition that goes way past typical big band hoke. Players include Pete Candoli and Don Fagerquist on trumpets, Bob Enevoldsen and Tommy Pederson on trombones, Ted Nash and Gene Cipriano on tenor sax, Howard Roberts on guitar, and either Lou Levy or Jimmy Rowles on piano. Titles include Farnon's own "Resume Speed" and "Caution! Men Swinging" – plus groovy versions of "South Of The Border", "Isle Of Capri", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Three Little Words". CD

✨✧ Michael JacksonBad ... CD
Epic, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Illinois Jacquet & Ben WebsterKid & The Brute ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used ... 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".

✨✧ Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionAbsolutely Free (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Ryko, 1967. Used ... 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".

Non PhixionFuture Is Now (premium box – 2CDs/3 x 7" singles/cassette/book) ... CD
Landspeed/Get On Down, 2002. Used ... $33.99
The underground classic from Non Phixion – in a box set billed as the "premium version", and they ain't kidding – it's loaded! Includes the original early 00s album on 2CDs – the vocal version and instrumental version. Also includes 3 X 7" singles – with "Black Helicopters", "They Got. . .", "Rock Stars", "The CIA Is Trying To Kill Me", "Drug Music" and "If You Got Love" – and a cassette titled The Past, The Present And The Future Is Now – with 21 tracks on it!!! We somehow managed to sleep on the original album for a couple years way back then, but woke up, thankfully. It's REALLY strong stuff, and its held up well over the years. Dark, paranoid satire as grisly as early Eminem, etc., with tight production by Necro, Pete Rock, Premier and others. Guest spots by Necro, the Beatnuts, MF Doom, Al Tariq and others. Titles include 'Drug Music", "The CIA Is Trying To Kill Me", "Rock Stars", "Black Helicopters", "Suicide Bomb" and "We Are The Future". Last, but not least, it all comes in a heavy duty box, and includes an 80 page, hardcover book of notes and photos. CD

John ZornNaked City ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... $6.99
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. The core group includes Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Fred Frith, and Joey Baron – plus a guest appearance by Yamatsuka Eye. 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

VariousDiggin' P-Vine – Planet Funk Mixed By DJ Muro ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2013. Used ... $11.99
DJ Muro normally mixes it up with classic funk and soul – but this time around, he's turned his mighty talents to a host of contemporary tracks from the deep funk underground – work from labels like Timmion, Record Kicks, and other hip indies – woven together here in a totally great blend of heavy drums and raw funky instrumentation! The tracks are all great on their own – but Muro's work really shows us what the right sort of DJ can do with the material – lining up the best breaks and tightest riffs – to come up with a stunning tapestry of sound that's even better than the sum of its funky parts! Tracks include "Soul Investigators Theme" by Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators, "Kool & The Gang" by Speedometer, "Truck Turner" by Undercover Express, "Purification (parts 1 & 2)" by Funkshone, "Pambiche" by New Cool Collective, "Midnight Feast Of Jazz" by Nick Pride & The Pimptones, "The Ghetto There's No Way Out" by The Soul Immigrants, "With Time" by Katzuma, "Got To Let My Feelings Show" by Bluey, "Stompin Joe" by Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro, and "Break The Fast" by Eddie Roberts West Coast Sounds. 24 tracks – and 70 minutes of music!

VariousGrazing In The Trash Vol 1 – Soul Fire Funk 45 Collection ... CD
Soul Fire, 2001. Used ... $6.99
Some of the best funk ever recorded in modern years! This tasty CD-only set brings together 7 funky 45s (a & b sides!) recorded for the Soul Fire label – a groundbreaking imprint that sprung out of the ashes of the Desco Records empire, with a strong dedication to producing new records with a classic funk sound. All of these titles were initially pressed up on limited edition funky 45s, and most of them are now out of print, never to be put on vinyl again. The CD is the only chance you'll now get to hear most of the material – and it's all top-shelf, A-list, classic funk all the way through! Titles include "Compin & Smokin" and "Damper Down Popcorn" by Calypso King & The Soul Investigators, "Haaa-Sheesh" and "Just Some More Haaa-Sheesh" by JD & The Evil's Dynamite Band, "Soul Safari" and "Two Beat Beast" by Speedometer, "I'm The Man" and "Your Love" by Lee Fields, "Majestic Soul" and "Welfare Line" by Third Point, "There It Is" and "Hook & Sling" by The Soul Command, and even tunes from the "Soul Fire Educational" single, a mass of funky drumbreaks!

VariousSonda – Muzyka Z Programu Telewizyjnego – Library Music From Sonoton Vaults ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1971/Early 80s. Used ... $14.99
Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith. Also includes one older British cut – "Visitation" by Mike Vickers – used as the main theme of the show! CD

✨✧ Myles SankoForever Dreaming ... CD
Legere (UK), 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Timeless soul and funk from London-based singer Myles Sanko! Sanko had been a rising talent for a few years, serving as a guest vocalist with funk combo Speedometer and others on the European scene, and he really steps out strongly on his own here. There's a richly melodic vibe that's pretty wonderful – and that gives it an emotional, deep soul resonance, without sacrificing the gritty working band feel that we love some much about modern day funk. He's backed by a strong 8 piece combo throughout, and the titles include "Forever Dreaming", "Light In My Hand", "Shooting Star", "My Inspiration", "So Much Indeed", "To My Surprise", "Save My Soul", "Lonely Dreamers", "Take A Look At Me Now", "Take A Look At Me Now" and more. Includes 2 bonus tracks: "Where We Need To Be" and an instrumental version of "To My Surprise". CD

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineCherry (Japanese pressing) ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best CTI albums from the early 70s – and one of Stanley Turrentine's funkiest records as well! The album's got a sharper edge than most other Turrentine albums of the time – a quality that goes beyond Stan's already soulful approach to the tenor, and which brings in some tight changes and more pronounced rhythms that really give the best cuts a great groove! The group's a sextet – with Bob James on electric piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Cobham on drums – and titles include a monster version of Weldon Irvine's "Sister Sanctified" – a great funk tune that's probably best known as the sample for "My Philosophy" by BDP! Other tracks include "Speedball", "Cherry", and "The Revs". CD
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)

✨✧ Sahib Shihab/Art Farmer/Clifford JordanSwiss Radio Days Vol 32 – Sahib Shihab, Art Farmer, & Clifford Jordan ... 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
