Michel Magne/Bernard GerardLes Tontons Flingueurs (And More) (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
A set of groovy tunes from mad mid 60s French films – recorded in a variety of wild styles! The set features tracks from a number of movies directed by Georges Lautner – including Les Tontons Flingeurs, Les Barbouzes, Ne Nous Fachons Pas, and La Grande Sauterelle – all slightly whimsical films, scored here in the manner of groovy movies from mid 60s America or London! Michel Magne's work kicks off side one – and Bernard Gerard throws in some nicely rocking touches on side two, to match the mood of the other tunes – making for a pretty crazy batch of tracks with a strong 60s feel! Titles include "Ne Nous Fachons Pas", "Barbouzes En Folie", "Du Riffi Au Chateau", "Slow Des Tontons", "Route De Nuit", and "Mechoui". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny GriffinBlues Up & Down/Griff & Lock ... CD
Milestone/Jazzland, 1960/1961. Used ... $8.99
During the early 60s, tenor giants Johnny Griffin and Eddie Lockjaw Davis teamed up to cut a series of monster LPs that are still defined today as some of the best examples ever of a twin tenor frontline! The records matched hardbop solo intensity with tight soul jazz grooving – and nobody was better equipped to handle such a combo as Griff and Lockjaw. Two of those great LPs are pulled together for this CD – Blues Up & Down and Griff & Lock, both originally issued for the Jazzland label, and darn hard to find. Rhythm is by either Junior Mance or Lloyd Mayers on piano, plus Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums. Titles include "Hey Lock!", "Midnight At Mintons", "Good Bait", "Oh, Gee", "Layin On Mellow", and "Leapin On Lenox". CD

Journey Into FearJourney Into Fear Collected Works Vol 1 – Issues 1 to 7 – May 1951 to May 1952 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1951/1952. New Copy ... $9.99 47.99
The title's a great one for this creepy horror comic of the 50s – as the stories have this stark, spooky feel that definitely helps you take a journey into fear! The publication was maybe a bit more low-budget than some of its contemporaries – but that also makes some of these stories even more spooky – almost as if the writers and artists were moving quickly, and didn't have time to candy-coat their work – so just threw their offbeat ideas and strange stories on the page as-is! Unlike some of the other volumes in this wonderful batch of books from PS Artbooks, the publication doesn't list the creators – possibly because they're lesser-knowns – but we can say that there's fantastic 50s comic artwork throughout – all in the unbridled pre-code style – with lots of ghouls, bats, skeletons, and other fearsome figures – often mixed with illicit love, crime, and other sordid themes. Hardcover book features seven rare issues of this legendary comic – all in full color too! Book

VariousBrownswood Bubblers Volume 12 – Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.98
A dozen volumes in – and this wonderful series is still going strong – an incredibly solid, incredibly trustworthy collection of all that's great in the global underground! Gilles Peterson has been opening up our ears for decades, and he's never let us down – and, as before, there's a rich array of forward-thinking music here – from lyrically poignant club-ready soul, to neo classic spiritual jazz, to modern funk, and beyond – all tracks that have a sound that's way hipper than the mainstream, and a sense of class that few artists can touch. Titles include "Stop Rewind" by Slim with Ella Mae, "Refugee Song" by Buttering Trio, "Rosie" by Wayne Snow, "No Time To Lose" by Madison McFerrin, "Could You Be Me" by Kathy Kosins & Paul Randolph, "Gotta Get Out" by The Pendletons, "Red Planet" by Chip Wickham, "Are You In Peace" by Selebyone, "La Mano" by Stimulator Jones, "Flute Song" by Wildflower, "Love Falls Down" by Poppy Ajudha, "Turn My G Down" by God Colony, "2 Sides" by Oscar Jerome, "Should You Go" by Skinny Pelembe, "Above The Clouds" by Yisrael Trio, "Anxious Party People" by Blood Wine Or Honey, and "Differences" by Elisa Imperilee & Srigala.

Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny GriffinFirst Set – Recorded Live At Mintons ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $19.99
During the early 60s, the team of Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Johnny Griffin was one of the most exciting unions in jazz. The two tenorists came from two different camps – Davis, the gutsy R&B soloist, Griffin, the hardbop powerhouse with a flair for the modern. Their pairing was an incredible stroke of genius and luck, and the albums they waxed – like this one – feature an approach hardly ever matched again by a two-tenor band. One of the best features of the group was their dedication to opening up the works of Monk into a freer blowing style – and they do so nicely on this album's two long takes of "Epistrophy" and "Well, You Needn't", both recorded live at the legendary Minton's Playhouse in Harlem (site of some of the band's best recordings.) Junior Mance heads up the soulful rhythm section that also includes Larry Gales and Ben Riley. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JohnstonsBitter Green/Colours Of The Dawn/If I Sang My Song (bonus tracks) ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of tremendous albums by The Johnstons – all recorded right around the start of the 70s, at a time when the group was moving into some even more heady territory than before! The Johnstons got their start as a more traditional Irish folk group, but like most of their British Isles contemporaries at the end of the 60s, they were able to find a way to bridge the ancient and the current – by this point mixing traditional material with some very well-chosen contemporary cuts, all of which really flower even more wonderfully in the beautiful male/female vocal style of the group – who can hit a warm blend that's almost like the west coast post-folk modes of the Sunshine Pop generation, but much more cerebral. Production is nicely stripped-down at most points – with a focus on acoustic instrumentation, but also some slight elements on the second two albums that almost remind us of the hipness of Warner/Reprise productions for this sort of material. 2CD set features all three albums, plus 11 more bonus tracks – with titles that include "Jesus Was A Carpenter", "The Story Of Isaac", "Bitter Green", "The Wind In My Hands", "Border Child", "Going Home", "The Life Of The Rover", "Won't You Come With Me", "Colours Of The Dawn", "Brightness She Came", and "Won't You Come With Me". 42 tracks in all!

Dollar BrandOde To Duke Ellington ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A warm solo piano tribute to Duke Ellington – kind of a nice "back atcha" effort from Dollar Brand, given that Duke was one of his big champions in the early years of his career! The style here is quite far from Ellingtons, even though Brand plays a few of Duke's compositions – and like other solo sets from the pianist, the tracks have a wonderfully rhythmic feel overall – a ringing, pulsating quality that's totally great – quite different from what you might expect in a solo piano set from anyone else! Titles include "Impressions On A Caravan", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Two Spirituals", "Rose Got It Bad In Harlem". LP, Vinyl record album

PlunkyTropical Chill ... LP
Name Brand Records, 1988. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A classic set of grooves from Plunky Nakabinde – one of the first sets that has him breaking away from Oneness Of Juju, working on his own as a solo act! The set's filled with lots of soulful sax lines from Plunky – mostly soprano, with a nod to Grover Washington Jr, but also a bit of tenor too – set to electrified backings that are heavy on keyboards and beats, and which have a nice sort of 80s charm to them! Things are equally balanced between soul rhythms and jazzy inflections – and side one features groovers like "Tropical Chill", "This Is Our Time", and "Skeletons On Sax" – while side two is mellower, with cuts that include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Kumasi Another Night", and "A Change Is Gonna Come". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a cut corner.)
