Bruce LaceySpacey Bruce Lacey – Film Music & Improvisations Vol 1 ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Weird and wonderful work from the enigmatic Bruce Lacey – a character whose life and ideals are as compelling as his music! This package is really the first to ever do Lacey justice – and it brings together a rich range of electronic explorations and a few more acoustic improvisations as well – all material that really marks Bruce as being on the forefront of experimentation, especially in the years before the 70s Brit electronicians, even Throbbing Gristle! Lacey's music is stark, but has a sense of humanity – often as spacey as the title promises, but never in a careless way – and always filled with subtle shadings and thoughtful passages. Many of the sounds are electronic, but they also have very unusual sources too – and titles include "Music From Everybody's Nobody", "Music From Double Exposure", and "Ancient Forces". Great notes too – really getting at Lacey's enigmatic role in UK music! LP, Vinyl record album

Jose PratesTam Tam Tam ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Heavy rhythms from the Brazilian scene of the 50s – a set of grooves originally used to accompany a touring dance production, but a set of tracks that's gone on to have quite a life of its own! The music here isn't the cool bossa or spare samba you might expect – and instead has this full-on, very heady sort of vibe – almost Afro-Cuban in the way the album was recorded, although lots of the core elements of the music have a distinctly Brazilian feel, and seem to point the way towards more ambitious recordings of the 60s – such as the work of Moacir Santos on the Forma label, or the Afro Sambas of Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes! Percussion is very heavy, and nicely earthy – and most tracks feature some chorus vocals buried alongside the rhythms, plus occasional leads from Ivan De Paula – who's got a deep style that really matches the music. Titles include "Imbae Sofa", "Ogum Olojo", "De Luanda", "Tem Brabo No Samba", "Onika", and "Maracatu Da D Santa". LP, Vinyl record album

Late work by Webster and Byas – playing here with backing by a European rhythm section that includes Tete Montoliu on piano and Peter Trunk on bass, plus American Albert Heath on drums. The tracks are mostly long and open – with the main focus on letting the two tenor giants solo as much as possible. Tracks include "Caravan", "Sundae", "Blues For Dottie Mae", and "Perdido".

Harvey MandelGames Guitars Play (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Purple Pyramid, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.98
Guitars playing plenty of games here – easy to do when in the godlike hands of Harvey Mandel – a guitarist rooted in blues, but also with lots of psychedelic inclinations as well! This album's one of Harvey's best as a solo act – and gets some sweet fuzzy production by the legendary Abe Voco Kesh – whose touches help give the record that sort of genre-stepping vibe of the best Bay Area material of the time. Harvey's guitar is firmly in the lead, but there's a bit more vocals on the set than some of the previous Mandel records – and titles include a trippy version of Horace Silver's "Senor Blues", plus "Capurange", "Ridin High", "Honky Tonk", "Leavin Trunk", and a wild stoned version of "Games People Play".

Albert Mangelsdorff & His Frankfurt All StarsRhein Main Jump ... LP
Jazztone/Be! (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Wicked modern jazz from the German scene of the 50s – a set that's billed on the back as "modern jazz to dance to", but which has a much deeper groove overall! True, the sounds are swinging – but the top-shelf talents in the group really make some magic with their solo work, and the way they come together – often aware of the best tones and timings to make each tune bristle with energy from the very first note! The lineup features the mighty Hans Koller on tenor, baritone, and clarinet – plus Joki Freund on tenor, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, Pepsi Auer on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Rudi Sehring on drums. Titles are all originals, too – and very fresh at that – and tunes include "Old Hat With A New Rim", "Ending Ad Lib", "Adlon 1925", "You're On Hans", "Sound For Jazztone", "Golabki", and "Beard's Beard".

✨✧ Dusko Goykovich with Nathan Davis & Mal WaldronSwinging Macedonia ... LP
Enja/Be! (Germany), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary German session from the 60s – and a record that really showcases the unusual criss-crossing of modes that was going on in the European scene at the time! There's a very strong MPS vibe here – as trumpeter Dusko Goykovich leads a swinging sextet that includes Nathan Davis on flute, soprano, and tenor – blowing some tremendously soulful reed lines – plus incredible rhythms from Mal Waldron on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Cees See on drums. The record's an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective – but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could – damn soulful, and with a great exotic vibe. Davis is especially great, and plays in a soaring modal vein that's similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in America in the early 70s. The album's a beautiful session that often get's overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalog – but it's really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that's waiting to be rediscovered by the Dusty Groove crowd. Titles include "Macedonia", "Old Fisherman's Daughter", "Jumbo Uganda", "Bem Basha", "Saga Se karame", and "The Nights Of Skopje". LP, Vinyl record album
