✨✧ Universal Robot BandDance & Shake Your Tambourine ... CD
Red Greg, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work by the Universal Robot Band – an electronic ensemble put together by producer Greg Carmichael, and featuring that great funky moog sound that he and Patrick Adams were using heavily at the time! The tracks have a funky disco groove – similar to groups on P&P Records, but a bit more conventionally disco at points too – with elements that might have made these guys cross over to a slightly bigger audience in the 70s. The moog is plenty great throughout – going really wild a times, with that unbridled quality that really marks a P&P recording – and the beats often that that slightly funk, sweetly stepping Adams/Carmichael groove too! With all that great keyboard work, there's hardly a tambourine in sight – and titles include "Dance & Shake Your Tambourine", "You're My Music", "Space Disco", "Save Me", and "Sunshine". CD

Booker T & The MGsUniversal Language ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Very Good ... $7.99
A sweet sweet set of electric 70s funk – recorded by Booker T during a brief, but well-needed reunion with the MGs! The sound here is quite different than Stax-era MGs – as Booker plays a range of keyboards, not just organ – and the grooves have these great jazz funk touches at the bottom – almost a CTI vibe at times, but packed with the tighter energy you'd expect from the group! Steve Cropper's guitar is great – super-fine, and razor-sharp – really helping cut a nice edge on the cuts – over bass from Donald Duck Dunn and drums from Willie Hall, who's the only new member of the group. In a way, the album feels like mid 70s efforts from Johnny Hammond or Jimmy Smith – sweetly soaring on a let-loose 70s vibe. Titles include the funky break track "Grab Bag", plus "Sticky Stuff", "Moto Cross", "Tie Stick", and "Space Nuts". LP, Vinyl record album

Alice ColtraneUniversal Consciousness ... LP
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $20.99
One of Alice Coltrane's most adventurous albums – a beautiful blend of organ, harp, percussion, and strings – much of which are transcribed for the album by Ornette Coleman! The most haunting aspect of the album is Alice's work on organ – spare, jagged, with a nascent soulful quality that's quite different from her piano work on other Impulse albums. The strings provide a sheet of sound – a shimmering backdrop to support Alice's work on the keys – moving forward tentatively, but growing in energy as the album progresses through a host of Eastern spiritual influences. Alice is way past jazz at this point – moving towards the new level of consciousness hinted at in the title, growing majestically on tracks that include "Oh Allah", "Sita Ram", "Hare Krishna", "Universal Consciousness", and "The Ankh of Amen-Ra".

Killer stuff from this legendary Philly soul instrumental combo – with funky soul horns, unstoppable dancefloor ready rhythms and those soul-stirring strings – and right up there with their best ever! Bobby Martin arranged almost every track – and the record's a great example of the kind of lean and mean Philly groove that he had going at the time, a sound that was hard to beat, and hard to copy without sounding silly and overblown. Top shelf soul instrumentals from Philly International in the mid 70s – what more could we ask for? Includes classics like "K-Jee", "MFSB", "TLC" and "Let's Go Disco" – plus the equally great "Sexy", "Love Has No Time Or Place" and "My Mood". CD

Hermeto PascoalNatureza Universal ... CD
Natureza Musica (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
Continuing genius from the legendary Hermeto Pascoal – an album of strongly jazz-based arrangements – done with all the dynamic energy of Hermeto's earlier music, but also maybe tuned a bit towards the Duke Ellington or Gil Evans worlds of tone and color! There's nothing particularly Ellingtonian about Pascoal's music here – but there's a warmth and soul that's very striking – particularly in the way the horns come together, often with a voice that's more unified than on some of his more experimental recordings – soaring together to unlock some really beautiful spirits in the tunes! All the other players are younger, and most tracks feature at least one instrumental soloist – shifting out from the pack and really expanding the chromatic energy of the performance. Titles include "Brasil Universo", "Choro Arabe", "Viva O Gil Evans", "O Som Do Sol", "Apresentacao", "De Cuba Lanchando", and "Piramide". CD

✨✧ Francis LaiFrancis Lai At Universal Pictures – 3 Won't Go Into 2/House Of Cards/Berlin Affair ... CD
Music Box (France), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Three rare slices of work from the mighty Francis Lai – all lesser-known soundtracks done for Universal Pictures in the late 60s – a company who didn't set his music to record as much as other studios, even though they worked with Lai during some of his most creative years! First up is 3 Into 2 Won't Go – a beautiful store that both mixes some of the sentimental modes that Lai used with director Claude Lelouch, and also touches on some jazzier elements too – almost like a French take on some of the bossa-inflected styles of the Italian 60s generation of soundtracks. Titles include "Eyes", "Leaving", "You Married Young", "First Time Home", "Cinema", "Arrival/Afterwards", and "Dinner". Next is House Of Cards – not the Nextflix drama, but a late 60s soundtrack that has some nicely striking modes – a few more dramatic sweeps here and there, balanced with that sense of space and warmth that we always love in a soundtrack from Francis Lai! There's a really beautiful main theme that comes back a number of times – sometimes with organ or light instrumentation, ala A Man & A Woman. Titles include "Chateau De Cartes", "The Human Concert", "Ballroom Source", "Trip To Rome", "Flame Game", "Meeting Day", and "Reno Arrives". Berlin Affair has a really long, really vivid soundtrack here – one that's awash in the kind of lovely themes we love from Francis Lai, but which also has some nice crime drama elements too – balanced back and forth very nicely, in a way that creates a wonderfully vivid vibe that moves past even the usual treats we've come to expect from Lai! Titles include "Pete In Gallery", "Pursuing Pete", "Jet Flight", "Phone Call", "Blonde", "Steinplatz", "Languin", "Showdown", "Wendi's Death", and "Pete Loves Wendi". 52 tracks in all – with detailed notes as well!

✨✧ Toshio Matsuura GroupLove Play Dance ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quite a compelling little record – a jazz album at heart, but one that also opens up into lots of different sonic territory – as you might expect from a collection of tunes that includes tracks by Rotary Connection, Roni Size, Flying Lotus, Kruder & Dorfmeister, and Bugge Wessletoft! The approach here might be somewhat in the territory of that last artistic reference – as the music is opened up and sometimes a bit diffuse – so that the core elements are melded together in the hands of director Toshio Matsuura, then pushed off in a whole new direction! Things start out very spacey – with keyboards, trumpet, and other elements drifting in moody space – but the album really picks up speed once it gets going, and comes across with some fantastic spiritual groovers – including great covers of "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" and "Kitty Bey" – plus "Brown Paper Bag", "High Noon", "Do The Astral Plane", "At Les", and "Change".

Dorothy AshbyRubaiyat Of Dorothy Ashby ... CD
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $19.99
Incredible work from the amazing Dorothy Ashby – a brilliant set of funky and spiritual tunes, set to full backings from Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans! This album is easily one of Ashby's greatest, and it's dedicated to the writings of Omar Khayyam – one of the forces guiding Dorothy's more spiritual sound at the end of the 60s, clearly opened up in a way that's not unlike the direction of Alice Coltrane's work, but a lot more focused and a lot more funky! Ashby not only plays her usual jazz harp, but also koto as well, and even sings a bit too – and the larger group directed by Evans features work by Stu Katz on vibes and kalimba, Lenny Druss on flutes, and Cash McCall on guitar – all in a groove that's really a precursor to the Earth Wind & Fire generation of the Chicago scene! Titles include the amazing break "The Moving Finger" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Dust", "Joyful Grass & Grape", "Heaven & Hell", "Wax & Wane", "Shadow Shapes", "For Some When Young", "Myself When Young", and "Drink".

Chuck BerryConcerto In B Goode (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $29.99
If you think that Chuck Berry only hit his heights at Chess Records, then get ready to change your mind – as this late 60s record for Mercury is quite a cooker! Side one has Berry working in a cool hybrid of blues and soul, but with some very weird production – handled by Chuck himself, with almost a nod towards the way that the younger generation was messing up electric blues a bit with their rock experiments. Chuck uses a bit of unusual echo here and there, but still nicely avoids any cliched attempts to cash in with a rock blues mode – and then on side two, he really gets crazy – by offering up a side-long song that runs for over 18 minutes in length – the mighty "Concerto In B Goode", which is one hell of a guitar-heavy jam! Other shorter titles include "Good Looking Woman", "It's Too Dark In There", "Put Her Down", and "My Woman". CD

Chuck Berry with Steve MillerLive At The Fillmore Auditorium (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $29.99
The cover's a bit trippy, but the sound is anything but – and instead stands as a strong tribute to the way the early work of Chuck Berry continued to influence a generation of rockers well through the 60s! Berry's the frontman, and gets plenty of chance to sing and sear on guitar – and the backing band is actually the combo of a young Steve Miller – soon to explode in fame of his own, but here very respectful to Chuck! Wally Heider recorded the set – and it's definitely one of the headier Chuck Berry moments of the 60s – but mostly because the live setting allows things to get a bit looser, and even grittier. Miller plays guitar, and Jim Peterman turns in lots of great work on organ and electric piano – and titles include "Flying Home", "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", "CC Rider", "Feelin It", "Wee Baby Blues", "Hoochie Coochie Man", and "Driftin Blues". CD features 5 bonus tracks – including "Reelin & Rockin", "Worried Life Blues", and "Bring Another Drink". CD

BigyukiReaching For Chiron (Japanese version) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $28.99
Fantastic future soul from Bigyuki – an artist who's got a really far-reaching vision for his music – even though his sound is very stripped down overall! The music here is almost a science fiction take on contemporary soul – with these really wonderful, almost sinister keyboards and basslines – used in electronic flows that are wrapped alongside guest lyrics from Bilal, Chris Turner and others – but which also are more than happy to hang around some beats, and shift in these beautiful instrumental modes! The whole thing is completely unique – immediately contemporary, but with the depth of keyboard work of the past – jazz elements in the mix somewhere, but nice and lean overall. Titles include "Burnt N Turnt", "Pom Pom", "Eclipse", "Simple Like You", "Soft Places", "NuNu", "In A Spiral", "2060 Chiron", "Boom", and "Belong". CD

Universal (Japan), 1958/1961. New Copy ... $9.99
Three great French jazz soundtracks on one CD! The bulk of the set is taken up with Art Blakey's wornderful score to the film Des Femmes Disparaissent – which features work by Jazz Messengers Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, and Benny Golson, recorded in Paris in 1958, with a hip swinging hardbop sound. These tracks make up 17 titles on the CD – with songs that include "Mambo Dans La Voiture", "Merlin", "Tom", "Nasol", and "Blues Pour Vava", plus a few solo drum tracks that are really great! 4 more tracks are from the rare ep-only soundtrack to Les Tricheurs – played by a Jazz At The Philharmonic group that includes Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson, Coleman Hawkins, and Roy Eldridge. Tracks on those numbers include "Les Tricheurs", "Phil's Tune", and "Mic's Jump". The last 2 tracks on the CD – "La Bride Sur Le Cou" and "Brigitte Strip Blues" – are by a quintet led by pianist Georges Arvanitas, and featuring trumpet by Bernard Vitet and tenor by Francois Jenneau. Very hip stuff all around – and a real treat for fans of jazz and film alike! CD

BohannonSummertime Groove ... CD
Mercury/Universal (UK), 1978. Used ... $14.99
One of the biggest and best albums ever for Hamilton Bohannon – filled with quirky rhythms and really unusual grooves! Bohannon was one of the key forces in setting the scene for disco in the early 70s – and by the time the rest of the country was hitting the dancefloor in the middle part of decade, he was still moving forward, into a whole new realm of groove! The tracks on this set have some really mad rhythms – skittish and scattered, still with a dancefloor approach, but with lots of odd touches that set them apart from the rest of the pack. A key example of this is the great tune "Me & The Gang", which has this off-key piano loping out over chunky beats – but the whole thing's great, with a lot more of a sly edge than you'd expect from the cover. Titles include "Summertime Groove", "The Street Dance", "Let's Start The Dance", "Listen To The Children Play", and "I Wonder Why". CD

Avalanche/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $29.99
One of the lesser-remembered country rock acts of the early 70s – and maybe one of the most compelling, too – as the group have a really rock-solid instrumental approach at the core, and also have a great way with a tune! The core trio hear features David Gershen, Jon Gershen, and Jim Rooney – all of whom sing and play guitar – on songs that are mostly originals, and which have a nicely fresh feel. Themes of the tunes are often a bit different than some of their contemporaries – just a bit, but enough to make a difference – and the instrumentation is augmented by studio help that includes fiddle from Vassar Clements, piano from John Simon, steel guitar from Ben Keith, and even a bit of sax work from a young David Sanborn. Titles include "Dragonfly", "Sweet Dreams", "Please Help Me Forget", "The Distance", "Marble Eyes", "Don't Know Where I'm Going", and "Marilla". CD

EmArcy/Universal (Japan), 1955. Used ... $13.99
A great follow up to the legendary Study In Brown album – featuring work recorded by Clifford Brown in the 50s, but not issued until nearly 30 years later, in this Japanese-collected batch of rare material! As with the original album, the core group on the record features Clifford Brown on trumpet, Max Roach on drums, Richie Powell on piano, and George Morrow on bass – plus Harold Land on most of the tenor tracks, replaced by Sonny Rollins on a few more – showing a shift that would occur in the group shortly after Brown's death. The focus is a bit more strongly on Clifford Brown's trumpet work than some of the other Brown/Roach albums – but is still a great group effort overall – and tracks are shortish and very tight, with titles that include "The Blues Walk", "Jordu", "Mildama", "Land's End", and "Junior's Arrival".

A really sweet little album from guitarist Kenny Burrell – one in which he takes older tunes ("a generation ago"), and updates them with a sweetly compressed Verve 60s groove ("today"!) The record features 2 small groups – one with Ron Carter on bass, Grady Tate on drums, and Phil Woods on some mighty nice alto sax – and another with Carter, Tate, and the great Richard Wyands on piano. The style is light, laidback, and recorded with a warm tone overall – in a mode that's almost a precursor to the CTI sound of the late 60s. Mike Maineri joins on vibes on one track – and titles include "Wholly Cats", "Rose Room", "As Long As I Live", and "A Smooth One". CD

James Burton gave his guitar talents to many over the years – but here he stands strongly in the lead – on a cool set of instrumentals issued at the start of the 70s by A&M! The album's a bit unusual for the label at the time – as it was recorded in Nashville, with production by Felton Jarvis – who brings out both the twang and fuzz in Burton's solo style – but maybe also gives the record some of the soulful currents you'd find in Memphis rock productions of the period. Burton himself does a great job of avoiding both country and instrumental rock guitar cliches – which really keeps things interesting – and titles include "Mystery Train", "I Know", "Long Peach", "Rock & Raunch", "Delta Lady", "Polk Salad Annie", and "Fools Rush In".
