CortijoAnsonia Years – 1969 to 1971 ... CD
Ansonia/Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... About February 19, 2016
Some of the best work ever from Puerto Rican percussionist Rafael Cortijo Verdejo – sides recorded in New York for the Ansonia label, at a time when Cortijo's music was even more rootsy than it was a decade before! The material here marks a renewed sense of tradition in players of Cortijo's generation – almost a back-to-basics mode that was their answer to the hybrids of the late 60s – a style that often has Rafael focusing even more on the rhythms at the bottom of the tracks, and leaving behind some of the fuller orchestrations of the 50s. The mighty Kako joins in on percussion on a number of tracks too – and singers include Chivirico Davila and Johnny Vega – on titles that include "Chiviriquiton", "Tele Tele Ya", "La Madama", "Que Linda Te Ves", "Tu Y Tu Guarapo", "Quien Fuel El Primero", "Echando Un Pie", "Alegria Bomba Es", "Dorotea", "Dudando", and "El Negrito Bailador". Comes with great notes in Spanish and English, too! CD

✨✧ VariousPunk 45 – Extermination Nights In The Sixth City – Cleveland, Ohio Punk & The Decline Of The Midwest 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Cleveland was one of the coolest cities in the punk rock underground of the late 70s – and was proof that groundbreaking music didn't just come from New York or LA at the time! This batch of rare Cleveland material is arguably some of the hippest, most interesting work of the whole indie scene of the US during the period – really amazing stuff that doesn't just grab a few simple chords to play fast and loud, and which instead goes for the kind of unusual styles, sounds, and timings that were only used by the few most forward-thinking acts of the UK post-punk scene. Some of these groups are still working a very strong influence on musicians today – and for good reason too – and this volume may well be the best of the whole Punk 45 series on Soul Jazz – with great liner notes from Jon Savage on the scene and the songs! Titles include "Love Meant To Die" by Jazz Destroyers, "Street Where Nobody Lives" by The Pagans, "Tele K Killing" by The Broncs, "Splitter Splat" by Electric Eels, "Final Solution" by Pere Ubu, "No" by Human Switchboard, "A" by X-X, "Everything Near Me" by Styrene Money, "Life Stinks" by Rocket From The Tombs, and "Drano In Your Veins" by Poli Styrene Jass Band.

Jack ArelChappell Recorded Music Library Works – Originals & Remixes ... CD
Chappell/Vadim (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A long-overdue collection of work from the legendary Jack Arel – one of the lesser-known sound library composers of the late 60s and early 70s – but a true giant in his funky field, as you'll hear by the great music on this set! Arel is French, but he often wrote for British sources – including the Prisoner TV show – so his music has a great blend of Parisian pop modes and chunkier London beats – a style that almost mixes together some of the funkier jazz sensibilities of the sound library generation with the tighter, more romping rhythms that were usually penned for TV and commercial use. The first half of this set features 25 originals by Arel – some in collaboration with Pierre Dutor or Jean-Claude Petit – and often done with trippier touches that include fuzzy guitar or funky flute! The second half features remixes of the originals – tunes that are often a bit longer, and almost restructured as whole new songs. Originals include "Shore Of Sumatra", "Sideral Rhythmic", "De Paris A Liverpool", "Jungle Soul", "Game Trap", "Picture Of Summer", "Train Bleu", "Strange Galaxy", and "Sundown". Remixes include "Drugstore Party" remixed by Le Tone, "Jungle Soul" remixed by Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra, "The Night Squad" by Danny Wild & Goldfinger, "Loco Robo" by Luke Vibert, "Chicago Girl" remixed by Barth, "Electric Railman" remixed Mowo, and "Crystal Abyss" by Telepopmusik.

Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) ... LP
Motown, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

John BakerVendetta Tapes – Incidental Music From The 1960s BBC TV Series & Other Radiophonics ... CD
Buried Treasure (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Sublime sound cues from BBC maestro John Baker – a wonderful blend of jazzy moments and weird electronic sounds – often used together at the same time! The feel here is as hip as the hippest Brit TV of the 60s – some very righteous grooves that would have made great records on their own – mixed with moodier moments that blend together all sorts of forward-thinking elements, at a level that was hardly being done on American TV at the time – easy shifts between timings and tones that keep the whole thing moving with an incredible degree of freshness throughout – with a sound that's way way different than any sort of other television work we can think of. Some tracks have improvised tenor or flute passages, often while other weird electric bits are taking place – and there's also lots of nice work on drums and percussion, which further gives the electronics a direction! Titles include tracks from Vendetta episodes "The Sugar Man", "The Dolly Man", "Suivez La Piste", "The Widow Man", "The Caves Of Steel", and "The Ice Cream Man". CD

Andrew Birkin & Alison CastleJane & Serge – A Family Album (hardcover) ... Book
Taschen, 2015. New Copy ... $46.99 59.99
A surprisingly candid look at one of the most important musical couples of the 20th Century – Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – a duo who made some incredible sounds together in the French scene of the 60s and 70s – and who were equally important to larger French culture as well! The pair have become the stuff of legend over the years – a romance that began when Serge was 40, and Jane not yet 20 – open, frank, and very sexual, both in their words and music – with a legacy that spanned records, film, and television – and also gave the world the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg as well. This volume's way more than a book – as it collects together shots of the couple and the family taken by Jane's brother Andrew Birkin – and presents the whole thing as if you're looking at a family album in the Birkin/Gainsbourg household! But there's also a smaller booklet of text, as well as a contact sheet of photos, 5 chromogenic photographic prints, a poster, stickers, and even an embroidered patch – all making for a beautifully lavish set of images and goodies! The core book features 176 pages of photos – but there's lots lots more within. Book

The Warp debut from the Boards of Canada, and only the second full length LP from the duo, though they had issued numerous CDs up to this point in their career. Warm electronics that transcends the IDM tag, and elevates them above the crowded peerage of bedroom laptop wizards. 17 tracks in all, including "Wildlife Analysis", "An Eagle In Your Mind", "The Color Of The Fire", "Telephasic Workshop", "Triangles & Rhombuses", "Sixtyten", "Kaini Industries", "Bocuma", "Roygbiv", "Rue The Whirl", "Aquarius", "Olson", "Pete Standing Alone", "Smoke Quantity", "Open The Light" and "One Very Important Thought".

Ron Carter & Cedar WaltonHeart & Soul ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
A spare session, but never a sleepy one – given the inherent complexity in the music of both bassist Ron Carter and pianist Cedar Walton – and the way they can swing even in the most mellow moments! There's only a few of those on the record, though – as most of the tunes have an upbeat groove, even without any drums – with those masterfully carved lines from Carter's acoustic bass that were developed fully on his 70s years as a leader – alongside the ever-growing palette of sound that Walton's always able to pull from the familiar keys of an acoustic piano! The album's a masterpiece in subtle swing and spacing – and titles include "Little Waltz", "Heart & Soul", "Back To Bologna", "Beautiful Friendship", "Telephone", and "Django". CD

Daniela CasaSovrapposizione Di Immagini ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
Hypnotic sound library material from Italian composer Daniela Casa – some of her rarest work from the mid 70s – recorded in her home studio and never before released commercially! It's very compelling work, with a range of styles from minimalist soundtrack music, to fairly heavy psych, to sitar-driven strings, to airy flute pieces and beyond. It was recorded for use in radio, television and film, but it honestly works just as well as melodic, if experimental instrumentals that masterfully blends and straddles genres. Titles include "Ricerca Dela Materia", "Pericolo", "Dimensione Concreta", "Grosse Cilindrate", "Avventura", "Visione Surreale", Occultismo", "Fantasia", "Motocross", "Dimensione Astrata", Ugnoto", "Circo Del Bimbi", "Sovrapposizione Di Immagini" and more.

EsquivelLatin-Esque/Exploring New Sounds In Stereo (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/El (UK), 1959/1962. New Copy ... $8.99
Hi-fi heaven from the legendary Esquivel – two albums back to back on a single CD! Latin-Esque is quite possibly our favorite Esquivel album ever – a tremendous little session that was recorded for RCA's Stereo Action series – with incredible sound that leaps back and forth between each speaker! The notes describe the record as having a "block long sound" – given that Juan Garcia recorded the record in 2 different studios, a block apart – and given the dynamic range of the music, you can almost believe that quote, given the way the instrumentation leaps around! There's a definite Latin flavor here – thanks to more bottom percussion than before – but all instruments really come off beautifully, including guitar and piano, and lots of other odd bits too. There's a slight bit of vocals, but not much – and titles "Jungle Drums", "Estrellita", "Latin-esque", "La Paloma", "La Raspa", "You Belong To My Heart", and "Cachito". CD also features the album Exploring New Sounds In Stereo – a classic bit of Esquivel, with a genius summed up perfectly in the cover image – a photo that features Juan Garcia gazing into a telescope, looking at the stars and contemplating his next musical direction! The sound here is great – a hard-swinging blend of dynamic orchestrations, wordless scatting vocals, and other instrumentation that feels like it seeped out of some spaceship that was just passing by! There's some nice percussion touches at times, and the interplay between all instruments is quite lively – never nearly as sleepy as other easy albums from the time. Titles include "My Blue Heaven", "My Number One Love", "All Of Me", "Spellbound", "Whatchamacalit", "La Ronde", and "Bella Mora". CD also features bonus tracks from the two Infinity In Sound albums.

Ella FitzgeraldBest Of The BBC Vaults (CD/DVD) ... CD
Verve, 1965/1974/1977. Used CD & DVD ... $13.99
A lost chapter of genius from the legendary Ella Fitzgerald – music that goes beyond her Verve, Reprise, and Pablo albums of the 60s and 70s – and which is pulled from a host of rare performances recorded by the BBC! The package features both video and audio presentation of the music – although the DVD has a lot more tracks than the CD, due to its greater size – which makes for a heck of a lot of work bundled into one sweet set! Recordings are pulled from a 1965 appearance on Show Of The Week, and a special Ella Fitzgerald Sings set from the same year – as well as a televised 1977 performance of Jazz At Montreux, and a 1974 Omnibus presentation of Ella Fitzgerald at Ronnie Scotts. DVD features 34 tracks, CD features 17 – and titles include "The Girl From Ipanema", "That Old Black Magic", "Gloomy Sunday", "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Cheek To Cheek", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Manhatta", "Mack The Knife", and "Good Morning Heartache".

Gilberto GilSua Musica Sua Interpretacao ... 7-inch
Polysom (Brazil), 1963. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
Some of the earliest work ever from Gilberto Gil – music that's got much more of a bossa nova feel than his better-known recordings at the end of the 60s – but at a level that's still head and shoulders above most of his contemporaries! Gil's in the lead on vocals and acoustic guitar, and although the rhythms are often bossa, the performance is more heartfelt than usual for the genre – very expressive, with some especially blue tones on the more melancholy numbers – a quality that we never hear this strongly in Gilberto's later work. EP features four titles – "Serenata De Teleco Teco", "Maria Tristeza", "Vontade De Amar", and "Meu Luar Minhas Cancoes". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Romolo GranoArcana/L'Uomo Del Tesoro Di Priamo ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972/1977. New Copy ... $19.99
Two 70s Italian soundtracks – back to back in a single CD set, and as musically compelling as they are obscure! First up is Arcana, a score that features arrangements from Berto Pisano – a maestro who's got a great way of drifting moody sounds through groovier moments – working here in a blend of offbeat strings, keyboards, and very cool vocalizations from Edda Dell'Orso – all at levels that feel different than some of the other Italian work of the time. Some tracks have a very ancient quality, but in atmosphere – as they still retain a 70s vibe in the production and instrumentation – while others start slow, and take off a bit more once they get going – in a set of 7 titles that include "Taranta", "Arcana", "Introversione", "L'Uomo Con se Stesso", and "Sacro E Profano". L'Uomo Del Tesoro Di Priamo is an obscure television soundtrack from the mid 70s – one that's arranged here by Gianni Oddi, with a mix of modes that features some interesting global elements coming into play with more upbeat passages too – usually a bit of ethnic strings amidst more familiar 70s backings – sometimes moody, sometimes electric. Titles include "Micene", "Danza Turca", "Bunarbashi", "Richerche Archeologiche", and "Mistero Di Troia". CD

Ahmad JamalJamal At The Penthouse ... LP
Argo, 1959. Good+ ... $4.99
A compelling title – as the record was recorded at Nola Penthouse Studios in New York, one of the hippest places to lay down tracks at the time – but the cover shows an image of the Playboy building in Chicago, famous from the TV show Playboy's Penthouse, Hugh Hefner's first foray into television! The actual music is equally compelling too – as the record is one of Ahmad's first non-trio sessions, and features some great larger arrangements from Joe Kennedy – backing the trio of Jamal, Vernel Fournier, and Israel Crosby with some light strings that create a wonderfully dreamy feel! Ahmad's piano glides along wonderfully in such a setting – set free a bit more than usual, and really sounding great on tracks that include "Ivy", "Comme Ci, Comme Ca", "Tangerine", "Never Never Land", "Ahmad's Blues", and "Seleritus".

QuanticAnnouncement To Answer (UK pressing) ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2006. Used ... $5.99
This guy never fails to blow our mind – and with this sweet little set, Quantic takes his groove one step further! Not content to rest on the laurels of his already excellent previous work, Will Holland brings in an array of sounds from around the globe – obscure samples, ethnographic instrumentation, Latin grooves, and soulful contributions from key players on the budding west coast scene – all in service of a style that stretches as far and wide as the telephone poles on the cover image! The sound is incredible – dug out of the earth by Will's richly creative imagination – jumping across genres willfully, but never in a way that's sloppy or disrespectful. If there's one man set to bridge the many worlds of music in the 21st Century, Quantic may be it! Features guest work by Noelle Scaggs, Ohmega Watts, and Tempo – on titles that include "Absence Heard Presence Felt", "Blow Your Horn", "Sabor", "Meet Me At The Pomegranate Tree", "Bomb In A Trumpet Factory", "Ticket To Know Where", "Tell It Like You Mean It", and "Politick Society".

A classic album of 50s mood music – partially for its famous cover image of Jayne Mansfield on the telephone! But the music's pretty great too – less of the swinging, dynamic sounds you might guess from the "bachelor" in the title – and more in the mellower, romantic style of earlier 50s instrumentals – with full strings from Henri Rene that swirl and shimmer nicely throughout! Other instrumentation includes piano from Buddy Cole, and guitar from Barney Kessel – and titles include "Easy To Love", "I'm Confessin", "For The Very First Time", "Somebody's Wrong", "Time On My Hands", and "Dinner For One Please James".

Andrea RoccaLa Citta Ideale ... CD
Beat (Italy), 2013. Used ... $1.99
A beautiful soundtrack with a very subtle texture – one that comes from careful use of a number of different instrumental sounds, woven into a rich tapestry as the music moves on! Hammond figures strongly in some of the boldest moments, but the richness here really comes from offbeat use of vibes, steel guitar, tuba, percussion, trombone, violin, and other elements – sometimes moving at a slow, brooding pace – other times abstracted slightly in the performance – which manages to great both an unsettling vibe next to the pleasing sounds that emerge. Titles include "Fotografie", "Letto Vuoto", "Cantina", "Museo", "Tribunale", "Corridoi", "Telefonata", "Allontanamento", and "Cosa Vedi". CD

Lalo SchifrinMan On A Swing/President's Analyst ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1967/1974. New Copy ... $22.99
A pair of rare soundtracks by the great Lalo Schifrin – back to back on a single CD! First up is Man On A Swing – an obscure mid-70s murder mystery, given a great deal of depth and class from Schifrin's music – which is often surprisingly jazzy, despite the setting of the film – almost with the care of some excellent late night LA noir, and in the territory of Johnny Mandel for its sensitivity and color, yet still served up with all the Schifrin sense of swing. Titles include "Rosehaven Motel", "Maggie's Theme", "Evelyn Story", "Wills' Trance", and "Forest Finale". Even cooler is Lalo's amazing score for The President's Analyst – a totally groovy soundtrack that was literally our first introduction to his genius, back when we were kids! Schifrin's at his 60s best here – jazzy, groovy, playful, and able to step between so many wonderful styles – from the Brasil 66-ish vocals of "Hey Me", to the playful parody of military themes on other numbers, to some of the sexier tunes that show up as the plot moves on – almost Lalo's remaking of A&M modes to illustrate mainstream America in the late 60s. Titles include "Total Sound", "Hey Me", "The Long Walk", "The Nest", "Sidney's Flight", "Fast Boat To Moscow", "Telephone Trap", and "Sidney Plans Escape". CD

Lalo Schifrin, Don Ellis, Jerry Fielding, & OthersMission Impossible – The Television Scores (6CD set) ... CD
La La Land, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $99.99
An amazing package of music – not just the original two albums of Lalo Schifrin music that were issued from the Mission Impossible TV show – but a massive 6CD collection that brings together work from all seven seasons of the program – a huge amount of material that's never been issued to the public at all, by a range of composers we never even knew worked for the show! Over the years, the spirit of Schifrin's original style was greatly expanded – still with groovy cop and crime modes that mature nicely into the 70s, but also with some richer soundtrack elements that really flesh things out – and which take on special character from show to show, depending on the composers! In addition to material by Schifrin, the set also features passages from jazzy talents who include Jerry Fielding, Don Ellis, Benny Golson, and Duane Tatro – as well as contributions from other soundtrack legends like Gerald Fried, Walter Scharf, Jack Urbont, Robert Drasnin, and Richard Hazard – and the whole thing fetaures six very overstuffed CDs – each almost to the brim with music – in a box with an additional booklet of notes!

Gil Scott-HeronNew Black Poet – Small Talk At 125th & Lenox ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP, 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest! Unlike some of Gil's other albums – which have a sweet jazzy vibe and a mix of mellow soul styles – this one's a lot rawer, and features Gil rapping loud over very heavy percussion backing. All the work is his own, and the album's a showcase for his brilliant protest poetry – the most famous example of which is included in "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", which leads off the album with an especially righteous groove! The set's a key link in the African American musical tradition of the 20th century – and proof that the underground, while not always afforded a good place in the broadcast markets of the US, could always burst forth in the "narrowcast" medium of recorded music. A landmark album – one we like even better than the early work by the Last Poets – and great all the way through! Tracks include "Whitey On The Moon", "Who'll Pay Reparations On My Soul?", "The Subject Was Faggots", and "Brother". CD
Also available New Black Poet – Small Talk At 125th & Lenox (Japanese pressing) ... CD 11.99
