Gamelan Semar PegulinganGamelan Semar Pegulingan – Gamelan Of The Love God ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $9.99
Beautifully evocative work on the Balinese gamelan – music that's maybe not as sharp as other recordings from that particular island – with a warmly flowing vibe that comes from the melodic cascading of tuned percussion, vibes, and gongs! There's still a focused, rhythmic feel to the music – but an approach that's maybe not as intense as some of the starker Balinese gamelan recordings – almost languorous at points, maybe in keeping with the "love god" mentioned in the title – with a sort of ebb and flow of sounds that's completely hypnotic! Titles "Tabuh Gari", "Gambang", "Tabuh Pisan", "Barong", "Sinom Ladrang", and the extended "Legong Kraton Playon", which takes up most of side two! CD

Blind Willie JohnsonPraise God I'm Satisfied (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

Don NixIn God We Trust ... CD
Shelter/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
Maybe the best album that Don Nix ever recorded – a set that perfectly illustrates his fully-formed genius, with Don writing, arranging, and producing the whole set down at Muscle Shoals! And sure, plenty of roots-tinged rockers hit that Alabama scene during the period – but few folks could make such magic like this – an effortless blend of both country and soul influences, but without any of the cliches that overwhelm when blue-eyed singers to for too much of the latter! Backing is by a small combo with Barry Beckett on keyboards, Eddie Hinton on guitars, and Roger Hawkins on drums – and the great Furry Lewis throws in a bit of slide guitar as well. Most tracks are Nix originals, or traditional tunes with new arrangements – and the Mount Zion Singers even sing a bit of backing vocals too. Titles include "In God We Trust", "Golden Mansions", "I'll Fly Away", "Amos Burke", "Iuka", "Long Way To Nowhere", and "I've Tried". CD

✨✧ VariousGood God – A Gospel Funk Hymnal ... CD
Numero, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer killer compilation – the sort we've been dying to own for years! It's a well known fact that there's plenty of funky nuggets hidden amidst 70s gospel recordings – massive grooves and break-heavy tracks that rank right up there with the best indie funk from the same time. Yet tracking down these tunes has always been plenty tough – given that most gospel records sold in different circles, had different distribution, and often are less easy to decipher for the crate digger than more conventional funk and soul. Enter the folks at Numero – who have really gone all out this time around, and dug through piles and piles of rare gospel records to come up with a whopping batch of great tracks! This set is definitely ground zero for getting into funky gospel – and it's filled with far more obscure work than the Soul Gospel set on Soul Jazz – all indie numbers from small labels that only got minor distribution at the time. As usual with Numero, the notes and package match the soulful depth and righteousness of the music – and the set is one of the most perfectly wrapped-up genre compilations we've ever seen! 18 tracks in all – with titles that include "I Thank The Lord" by Mighty Voices Of Wonder, "This Old World Is Going Down" by The Modulations, "Look Where He Brought Us" by The Apostles Of Music, "Thoughs (sic) Were The Days" by LaVice & Company, "Bad Situation" by 5 Spiritual Tones, "God Been Good To Me" by Mighty Walker Brothers, "O Yes My Lord" by Voices Of Conquest, "We Don't Love Enough" by Triumphs, "Heaven On Their Minds" by Sam Taylor, "God Will Dry My Weeping Eyes" by Horace Family, and "I Call Him" by Masonic Wonders.

✨✧ VariousWonder Of Stevie 3 – Presented By DJ Spinna ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s/2016. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of Stevie Wonder cover versions – different versions of familiar tunes, but ones that really manage to sparkle with all the righteous soul of the Stevie himself! It's been over a decade since DJ Spinna brought us the last version of his Wonder Of Stevie series – and during that time, he's managed to come up with a huge amount of great tracks that make the whole thing go way way deeper than before – not just cuts that copy the Wonder mode, but which seem to draw strong inspiration from its genius, and really soar to the skies! Much of the music here resonates with a charm that's located around the years of albums like Music Of My Mind and Innervisions, with all the jazzy currents that might imply – and some cuts are 70s vintage, others are more contemporary. Titles include "Bird Of Beauty" by US Atlantic First Navy Show Band, "It's My Pleasure" by Billy Preston, "Love's In Need Of Love Today" by John Minnis Big Bone Band, "As" by Tony Sherman, "Buttercup" by Jackson 5, "Have A Talk With God" by East St Louis Gospelettes, "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me" by Quincy Jones, "Golden Lady" by Reel People with Tony Momrelle, "If You Don't Love Me" by GC Cameron, "If She Breaks Your Heart Again" by Foreign Exchange, "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing" by Black Sugar, "Go Home" by Jrod Indigo, and "Make My Water Boil" by David Ruffin. 2CDs – one of the cuts unmixed, one with the tracks in a continuous mix by Spinna!

Steve Baron QuartetMother Of Us All ... LP
Tetragrammaton, 1969. Very Good+ ... $24.99
The "quartet" in the group's name is well-placed – as there's almost a jazz combo undercurrent to the record at times – hiding beneath some folksier instrumentation and vocals in ways that remind us a lot of Tim Buckley's early best for Elektra! Steve Baron's perhaps a bit less blue-tinged than Buckley on his vocals, but still a pretty great singer/songwriter overall – nicely mature, and quite free of any folk rock cliches – with a fresh appeal that really makes this record worth seeking out. Instrumentation includes acoustic guitar, organ, and piano – but it also feels like there's some vibes lurking back in the mix, giving some tunes a warmly chromatic nature. Manny Albam helped a bit on arrangements, and titles include "Lonely River", "In The Middle", "Goodbye Road", "Mr Green", "God Never Lived For Me", "Shadow Man", and "Bertha Was The Mother Of Us All".

Fontella BassFree ... LP
Paula, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Very righteous work from Fontella Bass – an album done after her time at Chess Records, and after her work in Paris with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – in a heartfelt, southern soul mode that's totally great! Fontella's back working with producer Oliver Sain, who first brought her fame back in the 60s – but the sound is a bit more sophisticated than before, drenched with roots from gospel and country soul, but also inflected with some of the more righteous modes of the early 70s too. Fontella's vocals are incredible – with a range that should have made her one of the leading ladies of soul in the 70s – and titles include "To Be Free", "I Need Love", "Wiping Tears", "Hold On this Time", "Talking About Freedom", and "My God My Freedom My Home".

Martha Bass, Fontella Bass, David PeastonFrom The Root To The Source ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1980. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A compelling blend of jazz styles and gospel roots – one that has Fontella Bass joining forces with spiritual singers Martha Bass and David Peaston – with a bit of AACM backing thrown in for good measure! The vocals really stretch out strongly on the set – sometimes following conventional gospel lines, but with small combo backing – other times showing a more complicated sense of spirituality that befits the modern setting of the album. Musicians include Amina Claudine Myers on organ and piano (plus a bit of vocals too), Malachi Favors on bass, and Phillip Wilson on drums – and both Fontella Bass and Peaston play some piano as well. Titles include "In The Garden", "He Touched Me", "Something Down Inside Of Me", "I Feel A Change", and "God Is So Good To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysPet Sounds – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD set – mono/stereo/live/instrumental) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Great 2CD version – features the full mono and stereo mixes of the album – plus a 13 track instrumental album, and 11 previously-unreleased live recordings of tracks from the album from the late 60s through the early 80s.

William BellBound To Happen ... LP
Stax, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Killer work from William Bell – a record that has him really unfolding and growing at the end of the 60s – taking off with a new sort of energy that we hardly would have expected a few years before! The sound here is nicely deep and mature – still in a classic Memphis mode, but with nods to some of the changes going on in soul all around the country from in the 60s – a style that sifts in some of the best righteous elements from other scenes, then wraps them up nicely with a sweet Tennessee glow. The album was the first to include Bell's excellent track "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" – which has a vibe that's sort of a mix of East Coast and Memphis soul – and other titles include covers of "Western Union Man" and "Everyday People", plus a number of great post-1968 Stax tunes, most of which were written by Booker T. Jones – including "Johnny I Love You", "All God's Children Got Soul", and "A Smile Can't Hide". LP, Vinyl record album

Fabrizio Bosso3 Essential Albums (Sol/You've Changed/Purple) (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Italy), 2007/2008/2013. New Copy 3 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of albums from this great trumpeter – packaged together in a nicely-priced set! Sol is a beautiful session from Italian trumpeter Fabrizo Bosso and saxophonist Javier Girotto – one that's filled with all the Latin Moods promised in the title! The set steps nicely off some of Bosso's other recent work for Blue Note – with a sound that's evocative, but also pretty lively too – especially given the small combo setting for the date! Bosso's trumpet and flugelhorn come into great play with Girotto's soprano and baritone sax lines – dancing beautifully over some rhythmic backings shaded in with keyboards, piano, and electric bass. The large booklet features some poetic prose that really set the scene for each tune – and although there's a bit of vocals on the record, most numbers are instrumental. Titles include "Volver", "Matias", "Pescao Blanco", "Wide Green Eyes", "Ochenta", "El Cacerolazo", "African Friends", and "Penny". You've Changed is a set that has the leader's warmly-crafted solos stepping out over some larger string arrangements from Paolo Silvestri! The music is great – fresher than you might expect, and not the usual batch of overplayed standards – given that Bosso mixes in music by folks like Ivan Lins, Marcos Valle, and Ennio Morricone – as well as some tunes of his own. The set features guest vocals from Dianne Reeves on one track, and soprano sax from Stefano Di Battista on two others – and titles include "Summer Samba", "Rio De Majo", "Estatew", "Joyful Day", "Nuovo Cinema Paradiso", and "Senza Fine". Purple is a set that has Fabrizio Bosso working with his Spiritual Trio – a group that features lots of Hammond organ, and plenty of tight drums! The "spiritual" in their name is a reference to an American gospel and soul tradition – one that's given plenty of play here, as most numbers are old spiritual standards from the church, reworked by Bosso into jazz instrumentals! Given the heavy use of organ, the approach is a bit like some of the Lou Bennett albums on the European scene of the 60s – with maybe a nod to the Donald Byrd albums of a spiritual nature for Blue Note. But there's also some very personal elements here too – either unusual instrumental inflections or production techniques, or some other aspects that show a greatly evolved understanding of this mode in jazz. Titles include "This Little Light Of Mine", "Purple", "A Little 3/4 For God & Co", "Dreams Come True", "Wishy Washy", "Total Praise", "A Change Is Gonna Come", and "Wade In The Water". CD

✨✧ Sam CookeTribute To The Lady ... CD
Keen/Andex (Spain), 1959. Used ... $6.99
An early gem from the great Sam Cooke – a pre-RCA session, but one that already has Sam showing a stronger jazzy side of his talents – as you might guess from the title! The Lady, in this case, is the late Billie Holiday – recently passed at the time of this recording, and lovingly paid tribute to by a young Sam Cooke – with vocals that have a perfect blend of sweet and raspy to really unlock the tension in Holiday's music – yet also deliver the sound with a much different vibe overall. The set's a great example of how strongly Cooke could sing in a sophisticated jazzy style – and he does a great job with Holiday standards like "God Bless The Child", "Solitude", "Lover Girl", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me". Rene Hall did the orchestrations – and the album's an interesting example of how Cooke, like Holiday, could work within conventional forms to work a subtly progressive agenda! CD

Eddie Davis/Charlie VenturaEddie Davis & Charlie Ventura In Stereo (aka Battle Of Saxes) ... LP
King, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
Tremendous tenor work from both parties involved – but especially from Eddie Davis, who always sounds wonderful on his early sides for King! Davis has a clear, clean tone that's totally great – and given the short space of these tunes, he really gets a lot done with a little – in a tight way that's somewhat different than his later sides for Prestige. Backing on the Davis sides includes some organ – probably by Shirley Scott – and titles include "Mean To Me", "All Of You", "Out Of Nowhere", "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm", and "If I Were A Bell". Charlie Ventura's great too – a bit more modern, almost, than on some of his better-known sides – and playing with a mean, lean, boppish tone. Ventura titles include "Liza", "Give Me The Simple Life", "If I Had You", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Walt DickersonTo My Queen ... LP
Prestige, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent album by vibist Walt Dickerson – perhaps his most adventurous work from the early days! The title track's a seventeen minute long swirling mix of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – with an excellent moody feel and a cool set of chromatic changes of the sort that characterized Walt's early work. The other two tracks are standards, but they're given the Dickerson twist, and sound beautiful and haunting, with an off-kilter edge. Andrew Hill plays piano, Andrew Cyrille's on drums – and titles include "To My Queen", "How Deep Is The Ocean", and "God Bless The Child". The recording is one of the high points of the Prestige catalog from the time! LP, Vinyl record album

Benchmark cosmic American music from The Flying Burrito Brothers! Burrito Deluxe is more of a group effort from the Burritos – Gram Parsons is purported to have held the reins on the first record – a slightly less trippy album but no less heart-tuggingly strong. The record also has more of a focus on the roots, still with some psychedelic flourishes and some soaring soundscapes thanks in no small part to Sneaky Pete's pedal steel and the killer group harmonies. Titles include "Lazy Days", "Image Of Me", "High Fashion Queen", "Man In The Fog", "Older Guys", "God's Own Singer", the fabled "Wild Horses" featuring Leon Russell on piano – and more! CD features two bonus tracks – "I Shall Be Released" and "Sing Me Back Home (alt take)". CD

Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". This expanded edition includes the B-side tracks "God Is Love" and "Sad Tomorrow". CD

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die (deluxe 2CD edition – with instrumentals) ... CD
Soul Temple, 2013. New Copy 2CD ... $5.99
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this intriguing collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver on it in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone here – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more. 2CD deluxe edition includes the full instrumentals on disc 2!

Johnny GriffinWhite Gardenia ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good ... $24.99
A tribute to Billie Holiday – with Johnny Griffin's tenor fronting some larger backing on strings and brass – but hipper than most efforts of this type, thanks to some great arrangements by Melba Liston and Norman Simmons! The record's a good change from some of Johnny's more full-on bop sessions from the same time – and it's nice to hear that his tenor works equally well on mellow tracks and ballads, stretching out with a deep edge and a wonderful tone. Other players include Clark Terry on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Ron Carter on bass – and titles include "God Bless The Child", "Gloomy Sunday", "Travelin' Light", "Left Alone", and "Detour Ahead". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Bill Grauer pressing with microphone logo & deep groove. Cover has light wear.)
