Wildcookie (Freddie Cruger & Anthony Mills)Cookie Dough ... LP
Home Grown/Tru Thoughts, 2011/2014. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A relatively unsung collaboration between Freddie Cruger and Anthony Mills – working together as Wildcookie – who bake up a pretty tasty mix of eclectic beats and synthy soul production, and freeform soul vocals. The vibe is just wigged out enough, with a oddball lyricism grounded by a geniunely soulful delivery, and warmly percolating, though unpredictable beats and production – with some additional Rhodes, guitar and sax when duty calls. Nice stuff! Includes "Song With No Ending", "Serious Drug", "Jackosn Miles", "Flashy Flashy", "Touchy Touchy", "Piece Of Mind", "Tuesday Is Friday", "Something About Those Days", "Autocoon", "At The Same Time" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Finally on vinyl! Limited edition.)

✨✧ Nostalgia 77 & The MonsterMeasures ... LP
Tru Thoughts, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the jazziest, most spiritual music we've heard from Nostalgia 77 in years – a great return to territory they started hitting towards the end of the last decade – and a record that's got a rich, organic sound right from the start! The album's a jazz set through and through – well-conceived with lots of modal rhythms, topped with soaring lines on saxes, trumpet, and flute – which are all held together by these richly-colored piano lines that create a lot of warmth, without ever softening the edges of the music. The approach is quite similar to some of the recent Gondawa recordings by UK contemporaries Matthew Halsall and Nat Birchall – and titles include "Measures", "Apple", "Thoughts To Geoff", "Scallywag", "Rules", and "Island In The Sun".

FreebornePeak Impressions ... LP
Monitor, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
One of the few straight rock records ever issued on the mostly-folk Monitor Records label – a great 60s outing from Freeborne, a group with a sound that's as tripped-out as you might expect from the cover! Instrumentation is heavy on organ and guitars, both acoustic and electric, but there's also some cool percussion too – and interesting use of recorders, in a way that comes across with an ocarina-like charm! Vocals are somewhat soft, but have a dark undercurrent – and there's a really great folk-into-psyche sort of feel to the whole thing. Titles include "Images", "Land Of Diana", "But I Must Return To Frenzy", "Inside People", "Yellow Sky", "Peak Impressions & Thoughts", and "Visions Of My Own". LP, Vinyl record album

Tubby HayesBBC Jazz For Moderns (with download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $18.99
Killer work from British tenor giant Tubby Hayes – issued here for the first time ever, and material that's every bit as great as his famous Fontana Records sides from the 60s! These tracks are well-recorded gems from the BBC archives – material recorded by Hayes for a special program, and featuring a largeish group of top-shelf players who include Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Keith Christie on trombone, Johnny Scott on alto and flute, Vic Ash on tenor and bass clarinet, Harry Klein on baritone sax, David Snell on harp, and Gordon Beck on piano – all regular associates of Hayes, working as tightly here as on some of his best arrangements from studio dates of the 60s. There's a mix of modernism and solid soul that's pure Tubby all the way through – tremendous on his solo moments, but sparkling throughout as well – exactly the kind of record that will make you fall in love with his talents. Titles include "Early Morning Afterthoughts", "Down In The Village", "Souriya", "Take Your Partners For The Blues", and "Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun Ra & OthersMy Way Is The Spaceway – Space Poetry Vol 4 ... LP
Norton, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible chapter in the rich career of the legendary Sun Ra – tracks that blend together music and spoken word passages – the latter of which are usually in support of his unique philosophy of the cosmos! The titles here really give an idea of the thoughts within – "The Music Is Like A Mirror", "My Way Is The Spaceways", "The Music Is A Sound Image", and "The Music Is A Vibration" – all very long tracks that are spoken by Ra in this very powerful voice – with a presence that we don't always hear from him this well on record, often set to backings that feature reed work on flute or tenor sax, mixed with a bit of light percussion. These aren't just readings, or poetry mixed with jazz – but a great glimpse at the truly theatrical side of Sun Ra's presentation, served up beautifully here in this special package.

✨✧ Andrew Soul/Steven Tang/Prof DelacroixOsunlade Atonement Sampler – Disconnected Thoughts/Sunspot/Build Her ... LP
R2 (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the warmest grooves we've heard so far from Osunlade – a beautiful selection of tracks that work perfectly together – almost as if the artist himself had a hand in their creation! The tracks follow strongly in the vein of organic house that Osunlade's always brought us – but they also seem to have a special sort of glow here – one that's more subtle, but still rhythmically bold – never too over the top in the way the instrumentation glides along, with especially great work on keyboards. Most tracks are instrumental – and this EP features three tracks from the full CD – "Disconnected Thoughts" by Andrew Soul, "Sunspot" by Steven Tang, and "Build Her" by Professor Delacroix.

✨✧ OddiseeBeauty In All (Instrumentals) (blue vinyl) ... LP
Mello Music Group, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Distinctive hip hop instrumentals from Oddisee – with a blend of fairly raw, though prominent beats that keep our heads nodding – with plenty of space in atmosphere for unpredictable melodic touches. A little piano here, some soulful electro accents there, and moody touches to spare! Solid stuff from an always reliable source. Include "After Thoughts", "In My Day", "Fashionably Late", "Fievre", "The Gospel", "Patience In Play", "Caprice Down", "No Rules For Kings", "Social Insecurity", "Fork In The Road" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download for the mixtape "Tangible Dream".)
