Three SoundsBlack Orchid ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Good ... $6.99
Maybe the most evocative title of all the Three Sounds albums of the 60s – and one that really gets at the dark beauty of the entire record! By the time of this release (the group's 7th for Blue Note), Gene Harris and the trio had really come into their own – and were moving past simple soul jazz modes into this wonderful blend of grooviness and lyricism – still very much beholden to Harris' rhythmic approach to the keys, but also filled with loads of complicated lines, especially from the group's wonderful bassist Andrew Simpkins – whose round tone is especially great on the mellow numbers. Titles include Randy Weston's "Saucer Eyes" , Neal Hefti's "Black Orchid", and the tracks "Don't Go Don't Go" and "Oh Well Oh Well", both originals by Gene Harris. LP, Vinyl record album
(New York mono pressing, with Van Gelder Stereo stamps and ear. Vinyl has some heavy marks that click on side 2, tracks 1-3.)

Three SoundsBottoms Up! ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good- ... $19.99
The bottom is certainly "up" on this one – as the Three Sounds groove things from the ground up, taking soul jazz piano to the next level with an approach that quickly made them one of the most popular Blue Note acts of the early 60s! Gene Harris leads the group on piano – and also plays celeste on one track (!) – and the other Sounds at this point are Andrew Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums – a really great rhythm section that have a way of being soulfully quiet, with a very subtle groove – one that's much more understated than you might find in the Ramsey Lewis trio, but equally hip. Tracks include "Jinne Lou", "Besame Mucho", "Love Walked In", "Angel Eyes", "Falling In Love With Love", and "Time After Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with 63rd Street label with deep groove on one side, New York on the other, with RVG stamp and ear. Cover has a peeled spot from sticker removal and some marker on back.)

Three SoundsColdwater Flat ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
A brilliant pairing of the Three Sounds trio with the larger arrangements of reedman Oliver Nelson – easily one of the most soulful bandleaders of the 60s, and a talent who really helps open up the trio's groove! The piano of Gene Harris is nice and sharp – played with a soulful sock on both sides of the keyboard – and soaring out over these full charts from Nelson that really sparkle with great touches from players like Plas Johnson on tenor, Lou Blackburn on trombone, Bobby Bryant on trumpet, and both Anthony Ortega and Frank Strozier on alto. The record's really one of our favorites by this great Blue Note group – and is a perfect bridge between their early trio sides and their later funky records! Titles include "Last Train To Clarksville", "Do Do Do", "Star Trek", "Lonely Bottles", "Grass Is Greener", and the groovy "Coldwater Flat". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Three SoundsFeelin' Good ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Good+ ... $9.99
With a sound like this, these guys have gotta be Feelin Good! The album's one of the first few Blue Notes by Gene Harris and his mighty Three Sounds combo – and is done in the group's very successful blend of soul jazz and piano trio musing – a key shift in styles from the 50s to the 60s, and one that always sounds nice! There's a great rhythmic approach to the work, augmented by Harris' chunky style of hitting the keys – and the album's filled with nice numbers that include "Parker's Pad", "Two Bass Hit", "Straight No Chaser", and "Blues After Dark".

Three SoundsGene Harris & The Three Sounds Groovin' Hard - Live At The Penthouse 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Resonance, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Rare live work from the legendary Three Sounds trio – tracks recorded at a small jazz club in Seattle, at a time when the group were turning out their classic albums on Blue Note and Verve! There's a looser, more laidback vibe to some of these cuts than those studio records – and Gene Harris is especially amazing on his solos – blowing our mind even more than before with his deft, soulful approach to the keys – almost hitting Bobby Timmons territory on some of these tracks, given his non-stop ability to groove while still opening up on the melody! All tracks also feature the great Andy Simpkins on bass – a wonderfully warm player who really shapes the sound – and drummers include Carl Burnett, Bill Dowdy, and Kalil Madi – depending on the tunes. Material was recorded in 1964, 1966, and 1968 – and very well-recorded, too – presented here with a clarity that rivals their albums of the decade. Titles include "AM Blues", "Girl Talk", "Blue Genes", "Night Has A Thousand Eyes", "Rat Down Front", "The Boogaloo", "Caesar & Cleopatra", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile". CD

✨✧ Three SoundsHey There ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Poor ... $4.99
Wonderful work from the Three Sounds – a tight little combo who weren't out to break any rules in jazz, but who made some excellent albums for Blue Note in the early 60s! The groove here is hard-edge soul jazz piano at its best – similar to early Les McCann work of the same vintage, with a strong sense of rhythm on the left hand, and some wonderfully complicated lines on the right – an early example of the genius of Gene Harris. Harris also shows a nice sense of thoughtfulness on the mellower cuts, too – which still swing in their own sort of way, thanks to the work of Andrew Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums. Titles include the great original "Dap's Groove" – plus "Sermonette", "Hey There", "Nothin But The Blues", "Street Of Dreams", and "Little Girl Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Late 60s. Good+ ... $9.99
A great little session by The Three Sounds – and one that features the band grooving away in a style that's a lot more lively than some of their studio recordings from the time! The whole thing was captured live at the legendary Lighthouse – and Gene Harris plays both piano and organ, while the group runs through some lively material that includes "Still I'm Sad", "Blues March", "Makin Bread Again", and "I Held My Head In Shame".

Three SoundsMoods ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Good+ ... $9.99
"Moods" is right – as the album's got a wonderfully dark undercurrent, one that makes it one of the most captivating early Three Sounds albums for Blue Note! Pianist Gene Harris leads a trio that includes Andrew Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums – and even though the set list includes a few familiar tunes, the overall pitch of the album makes the music really unique. The group play some sweet renditions of "Love For Sale" and "Green Dolphin Street", plus a great reading of Clifford Brown's "Sandu", which works very well as a piano tune. Also includes the tracks "Loose Walk" and "Tammy's Breeze". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Three SoundsSoul Symphony ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The mighty Monk Higgins works some amazing magic here with the Three Sounds – taking them way past their standard trio modes of the 60s, into some really funky territory overall! The set's a definite symphony of soul – not just because the first side features a super-extended, suite-like tune – but also because all of the tracks feature fuller backings from Higgins, which really push the piano groove of the group! Drums are mighty heavy at points – thanks to trio member Carl Burnett – and the great Henry Franklin is in the group on bass, already crafting those wicked lines that would show up even more strongly on his albums for Black Jazz. In addition to flute from Buddy Collette, guitar from Freddy Robinson, and Gene Harris' super-heavy piano, there's also a bit of strings, and some slight backing vocals in the symphony from a trio that features Alex Brown, Mamie Galore, and Clydie King. The "Soul Symphony" cut runs for 26 minutes on side one – and other tracks include "Popsicle Pimp", "Repeat After Me", "Black Sugar", and "Upper Four Hundred". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine with The Three SoundsBlue Hour ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Poor ... $6.99
During the early 60s, Blue Note wisely cut a number of sessions that took advantage of their soulful in-house rhythm trio The Three Sounds. The group recorded more than a few successful albums under their own name – but they also did a few great records that feature them backing up a more famous soloist. Such is the case with this one, in which Gene Harris and crew back up Stanley Turrentine for a beautifully mellow set of late nite tracks, played with an easy rolling groove missing from some of Turrentine's other, more full-on sessions at the time. Titles include "Blue Riff", "I Want A Little Girl", and "Willow Weep For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene Harris & The Three SoundsLive At The It Club ... CD
Blue Note, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
This is the kind of reissue we like to see! Funky pianist Gene Harris had spent most of the 60s playing in a standard trio format with his group The Three Sounds – but by the time of this live set, the group was evolving into a monster jazz funk combo, and Harris was getting beautifully heavy handed in his approach to rhythm. This live set was recorded by Blue Note in 1970, but for some reason it was left unreleased until a few years ago – a decision that's really a mystery when you hear how funky some of the tracks are! Black Jazz bassist Henry Franklin is part of Harris' combo at the time, and the drummer is the nice tight Carl Burnett. The set includes some excellent versions of Monk Higgins tracks like "Funky Pullett" and "Sittin' Duck" – and Higgins also produced the whole thing for Blue Note. Very nice, and another great session we're glad was dug out of the vaults! CD

Gene Harris3 Sounds/Gene Harris Of The Three Sounds ... CD
Blue Note/Dusty Groove, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $10.99 13.98
A pair of killers from keyboardist Gene Harris – both recorded for Blue Note, and back to back on a single CD! First up is Gene Harris/The 3 Sounds – the last Three Sounds album for Blue Note – and the funkiest too – thanks to lots more electrification than usual, and some killer arrangements from the mighty Monk Higgins! Monk's really at the top of his game here – going past even his great previous work for the group, and working with a tight, sharp edge that recalls his funky 45 brilliance of the 60s – yet tuned a bit more towards the electric Cali jazz of early 70s Blue Note! Gene Harris plays loads of funky piano lines – and in addition to the trio's core electric bass and drums, the set also features some added work on percussion from Paul Humphrey – who really brings in a kick – plus added guitar, congas, and even a bit of Hammond from Higgins too! Some cuts even have a bit of vocals too – sung in this offbeat way that's a wild approach to soul. There's some killer breaks on the set – including the massive "Put On Train" and "What's The Answer" – but the whole set smokes, and other cuts include "I'm Leaving", "You Got To Play The Game", "Your Love Is Just Too Much", "Did You Think", "Hey Girl", and a mad version of "Eleanor Rigby". On the second album – Gene Harris Of The Three Sounds – Gene really steps into the solo spotlight – moving away from his work with the Three Sounds trio, and headed into even more righteous territory – as you might guess from the trippy image on the cover! The set features Harris mostly on acoustic piano, but amidst larger arrangements from Wade Marcus that really round things out with a warm, soulful edge – mixing guitar from Sam Brown and Cornell Dupree with Gene's lines on piano – and giving things an extra kick at the bottom with drums from Freddie Waits, and percussion from Johnny Rodriguez and Omar Clay. The record echoes Harris' older roots at some points, yet comes across with a richer 70s vibe too – a hip 70s style that's strongly due to the contributions of Marcus' arrangements. Tracks include a great remake of "Listen Here", which begins with a great funky break; a sweet steppers version of "Killer Joe"; and the tracks "Lean On Me", "Day In The Life Of A Fool", "Django", "Emily", and "C Jam Blues".

Stan Getz5 Original Albums (West Coast Jazz/In Stockholm/Steamer/Cool Sounds/Stan Meets Chet) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $21.99
Five classic Stan Getz albums for Verve – all in a special package, in little LP-styled covers! First up is West Coast Jazz – a classic pairing of the tenor of Stan Getz and the gentle rhythms of the LA scene of the 50s – and a record that stands up beautifully over the years! Tracks are all a bit longish, and the group features Lou Levy on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – plus Conte Candoli on trumpet, somewhat in the frontline, but never in a way that overshadows Stan's tenor. The album's got a great David Stone Martin cover – and titles include "East Of The Sun (West Of The Moon)," "Four," "Night In Tunisia," and "Summertime." Stan Getz In Stockholm allows Stan to showcase his affection for a jazz scene that had been growing strongly in the postwar years – often in directions that were similar to Stan's own sound at the time! The session is one of the first to pair Stan's tenor with a Swedish group – in this case the bass of Gunnar Johnson, drums of Anders Burman, and piano of Bengt Hallberg – the last of which brings sharper, more angular style to the music than some of Stan's accompanists on earlier American dates – pointing the way towards new experiments to come in his music! Next is Steamer – not a word that we'd necessarily think to use with the gently flowing tenor tone of Stan Getz – but that doesn't stop the album from being a great one, and perhaps in Getz-like terms, it might well have a bit more steam than usual! The album features Getz in a quartet with a nicely flowing groove – nicely vamping piano from Lou Levy in the background on most numbers, and a definite edge in the lead tenor solos – still blown with the warmth of earlier Getz recordings, but perhaps showing some of the modern flourishes to come. Bass is by Leroy Vinnegar and drums are by Stan Levey – and titles include "Blues For Mary Jane", "There'll Never Be Another You", and "You're Blase". Cool Sounds features a range of unusual material recorded over a three year period with a variety of different players! Some of the dates here definitely fit the "cool sounds" title of the record – in that they feature Getz with the west coast lineup of Lou Levy on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Leroy Vinnegar on bass – heard more famously on Stan's West Coast album of the same time. But other sides feature a different grouping – with Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bobby Whitlock on bass, and Max Roach on drums – offering up a different side of the west coast altogether. And still others take things back to more of an east coast modern style – by featuring either Tony Fruscella on trumpet or Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, in groups with John Williams on piano. The mix of material makes for a nicely-rounded portrait of Getz's talents in the mid 50s years! Last up is Stan Meets Chet – Stan Getz meets Chet Baker – A classic meeting of these two talents – recorded in Chicago with a Chicago rhythm section of Jodie Christian, Victor Sproles, and Marshall Thompson. The album's an odd one, and is recorded with less of the impeccability of some of Verve's other sessions (which is probaby how the Chicago team got in the action) – but given Baker's harder-edged proclivities at the time, the set's a very interesting one to hear, and the relaxed nature of the tracks brings out some important solo moments from both players. 4 long tracks – including "I'll Remember April", "Jordu", and "Half-Breed Apache".

A beautiful larger concept work from Max Richter – based on the writings of Virginia Woolf, which are read at three short points in the set – to introduce the kind of subtle sonic spectrums that we've really come to love in Richter's music! The album mixes together Max's own sounds on piano and modular synthesizer with the larger sounds of the German Film Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ziegler – plus shorter string quartet passages, and occasional solo cello, violin, and soprano voice – layered together in Richter's own studio, with that post-performance sensitivity that's made him one of the key forces transforming the sound of classical performance on record. Gillian Anderson reads some text on "The Waves", Sarah Sutcliffe makes an appearance on "Orlando", and the voice of Woolf herself is heard on "Mrs Dalloway" – but most of the album is instrumental.

A wonderful set from this cool Australian combo – and one that offers up the group in two nicely different modes! Side one has The Three Out sounding wonderful as a trio – with sublime soul-styled piano from a very young Mike Nock, and exceptional work on bass from Freddy Logan – whose sound gives the record this deep bottom right from the start, and puts the group on a par with a rare few American trios – like the Three Sounds on Blue Note! Side two gets even more interesting, as the group are joined by four additional Australian jazz men – all horn players who really expand the groove, and get in some wonderful solos too – a lineup that includes the great Don Burrows on alto and baritone, Erroll Buddle on tenor, and both Ron Falson and Colin Jones on trumpets. Burrows and Buddle sound deeper and more soulful than usual, and really hit the groove laid down by the trio – and titles include "New Jade", "Sittin In Blues", "Nock Out", "Loganberries", "Dizzy Pipe", and "I Love You".

Not exotica, but Britxotica – a cool variant of the American postwar love of the sounds of the islands and the jungles – served up here in a really hip batch of tracks from the UK scene of the late 50s and early 60s! Many of these numbers are rooted in jazz, and there's definitely some key jazz musicians in the mix – but you'll also hear lots of the percussion, global instruments, and moody orchestrations you'd find on American records by folks like Les Baxter or Martin Denny – although sometimes with an even groovier vibe, and a nice London twist – similar to some of the Croydon Municipal compilations from Cherry Red! The package is one of the coolest collections we've seen from Trunk Records in a long time – and this special box features all three of the vinyl volumes. Titles include "Zambezi" by Tony Mansell & Johnny Dankworth, "The Green Eye Of The Little Yellow God" by Harry H Corbett, "Street Of A Thousand Bongos" by Brian Fahey, "Taboo" by Sounds Incorporated, "Follow Me" by Lucille Mapp, "Jungle Drums" by Ted Heath, "The Hat" by Jerry Allen, "Cha Cha Cha Calypso" by Maxine Daniels, "Sphinx Won't Tell" by Beverley Sisters, "Caravan" by Stanley Black, "Persian Twist" by Charles Blackwell, "Marrakesh" by Tony Osborne, "Climb Up The Wall" by Yana, "Miserlou" by Stanley Black, "Turkish Coffee" by Tony Osborne, "The Sultan Of Bezaaz" by Ray Ellington, "Heatwave" by Geoff Love, "Mangoes" by Lucille Mapp, "Hawaiian Honeymoon" by Frank Weir, "Tropical Mirage" by Ron Goodwin, "Run See Jerusalem" by George Melly & Kenny Graham, "Stormy Weather" by Betty Smith, "Milk From The Coconut" by Johnny Gentle, and "Quiet Village" by Martinas & His Music.

Think of key early 45s by Pink Floyd or The Move, and you'll get the vibe here – on titles that include "Busker Bill" by The Truth, "Cept Me" by Focal Point, "Toyland" by Alan Bown, "Subway" by The Tickle, "Time To Start Loving You" by The Mickey Finn, "The Squire Blew His Horn" by The Uglys, "Your Servant Stephen" by The Peep Show, "Toy Soldier" by The Riot Squad with David Bowie, "Eiderdown Clown" by The Scots Of St James, "Cos It's Over" by The Summer Set, "Evil Woman" by Guy Darnell, "Look At The Sun" by Louise, "Flames" by Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera, "Smokeytime Springtime" by The Doves, "Keep It Out Of Sight" by Paul & Barry Ryan, "Listen To The Sky" by The Sands, "Laughing Man" by The Marmalade, "Ginger" by TJ Assembly, and "Pink Purple Yellow & Red" by The Sorrows.

Lateef himself is playing tenor, flute, and oboe – which he uses to craft these eerie snake charmer lines that work perfectly with the modal grooves of the tracks. The rest of the group features pianist Barry Harris, drummer Lex Humphries, and bassist Ernie Farrow, who also plays a strange instrument called a rabat. Titles include "Plum Blossom", "Purple Flower", "Three Faces Of Balal", and "Chinq Miau". The second LP is a beautifully haunting set that marked his move to Prestige, and a sophistication of the Eastern-tinged jazz style that he developed during his years with Savoy. The tracks on here feature Yusef playing tenor, flute, and argol – with backing by a group of Detroit musicians that includes Hugh Lawson, Wilbur Harden, and Oliver Jackson, all frequent bandmates of Lateef. The tracks have a beautiful quality to them that mixes soulful jazz playing with Eastern approaches to arrangements. Titles include "Meditation", "Love & Humor", and "Buckingham".

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetThree Windows ... LP
Atlantic, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that shows that none of the group's imagination or talent had dimmed over the years – and the core quartet of John Lewis on piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Percy Heath on bass, and Connie Kay on drums are joined by The New York Chamber Symphony, who are a small string-based group who slide in and out of the jazz-based grooves with an inventive range of colors and sounds! The album's hardly a "jazz with strings" sort of date – and instead, the strings are nicely integrated with a fluidly creative approach – in the mode of some of the more experimental string quartets that were showing up at the time. Titles include "Kansas City Breaks", "Three Windows", "Encounter In Cagnes", and the "Day In Dubrovnik" suite. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gato BarbieriChapter Three – Viva Emiliano Zapata (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1974. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Gato Barbieri's legendary exploration of Latin American sounds for Impulse Records – a set that's heavy on Cuban influences, thanks to arrangements from the mighty Chico O'Farrill! The sound is sublime – a bit fuller than some of Gato's other albums in the run, but never with any slick or commercial styles – just more of a richness from O'Farrill's backings, matched perfectly by Barbieri's amazing tones on the tenor! There's a lot of Latin percussion in the backings – courtesy of Ray Mantill, Luis Mangual, and Ray Armando – and Eddie Martinez mixes in some sweet electric piano with his acoustic lines, deepening the soul of the record in a really 70s way. Titles include "Milonga Triste", "Lluvia Azul", "La Padrida", "Viva Emiliano Zapata", and "El Sublime" – the last of which is a good description of the record! CD

✨✧ Monica Lassen & The SoundsWoman (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony/Bridge (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that's definitely all woman – thanks to the sexy sounds of Monica Lassen on vocals! The singer works at a wordless level here – breezily scatting alongside these slinky, jazzy lines from The Sounds – a Japanese group who've clearly drunk deep from the well of bossa nova and European soundtrack influences of the 60s – and find a way to create their own small combo variation of those styles! The music has bits of organ, guitar, flute, and even what feels like electronics at points – and Monica's often more than content to step back, and let the group groove, then come in for a sigh, a moan, or a lighter vocalized passage. Titles are as sexy as the image on the cover – and include "Three Woman", "Love Touch", "Whimper", "Incitation", and "Happiness" – plus the long "Tie In/Double Bed/Enjoy Time". CD also features two bonus tracks from Romina Vixen & The Sounds – and the LP-styled cover comes with a mini-replica of the original booklet inside the LP. CD

✨✧ VariousOld School R&B Love Songs ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning mellow soul – of our favorite variety – laidback, but never sleepy – just slow-stepping with a great undercurrent of deeper ideas set to ultra-soulful vocals! These aren't the smooth hits you'd find on another collection of this name and look – and instead, the package is overflowing with indie soul cuts from the east coast scene in the 70s – particularly that wonderful first half of the decade, in the pre-disco years when so many groups could do such a wonderful job with a mellow cut! The package features a great range of material from a variety of small labels – and titles include "Sugar Brown" by Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers, "Super Fine" by Soul Generation, "Peaceful" by Al Johnson, "Sounds Like A Love Song" by Bobby Glenn, "Love Jones" by Norma Jenkins, "Ooh Baby Baby" by The Escorts, "Didn't Anyone Ever Tell You I Love You" by The Philly Devotions, "Three Minutes To Hey Girl" by George Kerr, "I Guess That Don't Make Me A Loser" by Brothers Of Soul, and "If (part 1)" by Lovehorn.

✨✧ Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 18.98
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. CD

Selda BagcanSelda (1979) ... CD
Turkuola/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1979. New Copy ... $11.99
Selda packs a heck of a punch on this late 70s set – a record that's still got all the wonderful elements of her previous three albums – that unique mix of folksy roots, protest themes, and nicely trippy production! Selda's holding an electrified version of the baglama on the front cover – and the instrument really sounds great on the tracks throughout – piercing with a punctuated sound that's almost like an electric sitar, but a more more straightforward – a perfect accompaniment to the rich, flowing lines of Selda's vocals. None of the tunes are in English, but there's a really universal appeal to the music – as Selda's the kind of singer that's so expressive, one hardly needs to know the lyrics to get the meaning of her tunes. Titles include "Ona Don", "Hele Yar", "Ayaginda Kundura", "Hizir Pasa", "Cendarme", "Izin Ize Benzemiyor", and "Sorsunlar Beni". CD

Gary Burton, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry3 In Jazz ... CD
RCA, 1963. Used ... $9.99
A great record that features work not on any other album! The set's a compilation of sorts – but it's really more of a "showcase", one that features the work of three of RCA's brightest jazz stars at the time. A young Gary Burton plays "Hello Young Lovers", "Gentle Wind & Falling Tear", "Blue Comedy", and "Stella By Starlight" with a group that includes Jack Sheldon on trumpet. Sonny Rollins blows on "You Are My Lucky Star", "I Could Write A Book", and "There Will Never Be Another You" with the great group that included Don Cherry, Henry Grimes, and Billy Higgins. And Clark Terry rounds out the set with "Blues Tonight", "Sounds Of The Night", and "Cielito Lindo". CD

Sylvester Cotton/Andrew DurhamBlues Sensation – Detroit Downhome Recordings 1948/1949 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1948/1949. Used ... $6.99
Raw sounds you'd never expect from Detroit – postwar blues by two overlooked artists, presented here with a fair bit of unissued tracks as well! Sylvester Cotton's got a sound that's much more southern than you'd guess – raw, stripped down performances that bring together hard-ringing lines on acoustic guitar with very plaintive vocals – much more a Texas style than a midwestern one, and a good indication of all the southern influences that were hitting the motor city in the years after the war. Cotton's music takes up 19 of the 25 tracks on the set – and titles include "Single Man's Blues", "Brown Skin Woman", "Three Cent Stamp Blues", "When I'm Gone", "Ugly Woman Blues", "I Tried", and "Stranger In Your Own Town Blues". Andrew Dunham follows with six more tracks – really mindblowing in the way he uses spare electric lines with the kind of formation you'd expect to here more from a country blues acoustic guitar – sometimes with such force it feels like the strings are going to rasp right off the frets, while his own vocals seem to work equally hard to blow out the microphone. Titles include "She Don't Walk", "Rocky Mountain", "Corinne", "I Found Out", and two takes of "Little Bitty Woman". CD

Francois De RoubaixComment Les Sedurire/Les Strip Teaseuses/Les Combinards ... CD
Music Box (France), 1964/1965/1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Three mad soundtracks from the great Francois DeRoubaix – all penned during his formative years of the 60s! Even at this early point, Francois shows a great ear for bringing up more inventive sounds from his orchestrations – sometimes great jazzy flairs on flute or vibes, sometimes playful tuning of familiar instruments, and sometimes incredibly groovy vocal passages that rival some of our favorite French pop of the period! The whole thing's wonderful – nearly 80 minutes of music that's filled with joy and delight – and plenty of sweet twists and turns along the way – with titles that include "Juke Box De La Drague", "Cover Girl", "Maquettes", "Nos Les Play-Boys", "Peggy", "Le Roi Du Yeye", "La Proposition", "Miracle A L'Italienne", "Brigade Du Twist", "Rendez-Vous Au Ritz", and "Session Jam".
