✨✧ Amy WinehouseLioness – Hidden Treasures (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Universal, 2011. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $27.99 34.98
A (sadly) posthumous release from Amy Winehouse – a voice we loved for a couple good years before knowing how troubled she was in real life and now lament the loss of – and this set, largely put together by producer Salaam Remi turned out surprisingly well! It'd be pretty easy to bow to cynicism, but for our money, there's more than enough strong stuff here. It features production by Remi, plus Mark Ronson on a couple tracks, and it's a mix of styles that ably demonstrate Amy's depth as an interpreter. There's some great, kinda late night jazzy soul numbers, classic level 60s R&B and thoroughly modern hip hop soul – all with strong vocal performances from Amy. Includes "Our Day Will Come", "Between The Cheats", "Tears Dry (Original Version)", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (2011)", "Like Smoke" feat Nas (and some eerily timely lyricism, as of this album's release date), "Valerie ('68 Version)", "Half Time", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Half Time", "Body & Soul" with Tony Bennett, "A Song For You" and more.

X-Ray SpexGerm Free Adolescents ... CD
Virgin/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
X-Ray Spex were one of the strongest of the first generation punks of the 70s – a group fronted by the amazing Poly Styrene, and blessed with some incredibly catchy tunes! There's a poppy playfulness to most of these tracks, underneath the fierce, full-on energy of the group – a rhythmic approach to punk rock that's almost a precursor to the Bow Wow Wow sound, but more decidedly punk at its heart. Tracks include "Oh Bondage Up Yours", "I Am A Cliche", "Highly Inflammable", "Let's Submerge", "I Am A Poseur", "Genetic Engineering", "Warrior In Woolworths", "Obsessed With You", "Artificial", and "The Day The World Turned Dayglo".

Kazuo YashiroDrivin (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $24.99
A drivin' little record from pianist Kazuo Yashiro – a player who cut some more soul jazz-oriented work in the 60s, but who's working here in a more fluid, open style overall! The approach is a bit like Red Garland on some of his best trio outings for Prestige – lyrical and melodic, but with an inherent sense of rhythm that really keeps things together – and as with some of Garland's best records, there's also some guest work on tenor here on two tracks – played by Hidehiko Matsumoto with a deep tone that rounds things out in a really great way. Matsumoto plays on versions of "Fantastic That's You" and "Just Friends" – and other titles include "June Night", "Don't Be That Way", and "The Song Is Ended". CD

Motoharu YoshizawaInland Fish (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $21.99
Incredible work from Motoharu Yoshizawa – an improvising bassist with an incredible range of tones and textures – and an approach to his instrument that really differs from some of the more familiar European free jazz giants on the bass at the time! Motoharu both plucks and bows – the latter with almost reed-like qualities at points, which creates a richness in approach that really makes for an amazing record – one that only features additional percussion support from drummer Yoshisaburoh "Sabu" Toyozumi on one track, leaving the rest of the album for Yoshizawa on his own. Titles include "Inland Fish", "Fragment 1", "Correspondence", and "Mado Window". CD

Motoharu YoshizawaOutfit (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $21.99
We're really beginning to fall in love with the music of Yoshizawa Motoharu – a bassist that we'd rank right up there with Barry Guy or Barre Phillips for continually creative expression of sound! Yet Motoharu's very much his own musician, too – every bit as free as those better-known European players, but graced with a touch that's completely unique – especially in the way he moves effortlessly between bowing and plucking – to create constantly compelling sounds, yet all without any sense of ego or bravado! That quality comes through beautifully in this set of solo excursions – a beautiful gem from the legendary Trio catalog – with titles that include "Hiccup", "Beans Dance", "Distance", "Crossing", and "Soft Nothings".

Monica ZetterlundAhh! Monica (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1962. Used ... $25.99
Early work from Swedish singer Monica Zetterlund – a great batch of jazz standards and originals, recorded with larger backing from the orchestra of Georg Riedels! The album's entirely in Swedish, but Monica swings her vocals with a style that's definitely inspired by the best American jazz vocalists of the 50s – offering up some really great versions of tunes like "Speak Low", "Dat Dere", "Baltimore Oriole", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Take Five" – all of which make some great appearances on the album, done in really compelling new takes! The record's a bit like some of the 50s/60s French remakes of English jazz tunes with new lyrics – a great set of vocal jazz with a wonderful edge – even if you can't understand all the words! CD

Monica ZetterlundMonica Zetterlund (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $21.99
One of the grooviest sets ever recorded by Swedish singer Monica Zetterlund – a cool late 60s album that has some really wonderful songs! At some level, Monica's still very firmly in jazz vocal territory – but she's also letting in strands of hipper 60s pop work, in a mode that's similar to some of Blossom Dearie's best work from the same period. Not surprisingly, the album's got a great version of Dearie's classic "Sweet Georgie Fame", as well as Swedish readings of Carla Bley's "Ida Lupino", Steve Kuhn's "Memory", and the tracks "A Man & A Woman", "Bachianas Brasileiras", "Alfie", and "Quietly There".

Monica ZetterlundOhh! Monica (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1965. Used ... $25.99
Really wonderful work from vocalist Monica Zetterlund – recorded at a time when she was really coming into her own! The album really has Monica stepping past her initial influences from American jazz – working in an idiom that's equally well suited to expression in her native Swedish, as it is filled with traces of a pan-global approach to jazz that features elements of bossa, modal jazz, and other compelling rhythms. Backings aren't credited, but they're plenty darn great – and titles include "Monicas Vals", "Konstigt", "Siv Larssons Dagbok", "Vilsevalsen", "Jag Tror Pa Dej", "Visa Fran Utanmyra", and "Spela For Mej".

Monica Zetterlund & Bill EvansWaltz For Debby (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1964. Used ... $14.99
One of the greatest albums ever cut by Swedish vocalist Monica Zetterlund – a landmark album that has her singing with the Bill Evans Trio! The album was recorded in 1964, with a spare sound that's quite different from most of Monica's other work. As usual, her vocals are wonderfully cool and icy, and she runs through a strong set of material that includes a few jazz standards, a few jazz versions of traditional Swedish material, and a remake of "Waltz for Debby". Other cuts include "Once Upon a Summertime", "It Could Happen to You", "So Long Big Time", and "Lucky To Be Me". Sophisticated jazz vocals by one of the biggest talents of the continent, and a rare recording by Bill Evans from the classic years! Plus, this Japanese reissue features 6 bonus tracks not on the original LP! CD

VariousI Love Serge – Electronicagainsbourg ... CD
Universal (France), 2001. Used ... $1.99
The groovy French pop of Serge Gainsbourg gets the remix treatment! After years of being sampled by hip hoppers, referenced by post-rockers, and claimed as an influence by a wide range of singers and instrumentalists – Serge Gainsbourg's finally breaking into the mainstream of modern music with this tasty batch of remixes from some of Europe's best producers. Of course, ol' Serge is probably rolling over in his grave at the thought of the project – but from our end of things, the whole thing sounds pretty groovy! Titles include "La Bas C'est Natural" remixed by Faze Action, "Ballade De Melody Nelson" remixed by Howie B, "Bonnie & Clyde" remixed by Herbert, "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus" remixed by Dzihan & Kamien, "Requiem Pour Un Con" remixed by The Orb, "Marabout" remixed by Bob Sinclair, and "Lola Rastaquouere" remixed by Chateau Flight.

VariousInspiration & Power 14 – Free Jazz Festival 1 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... $29.99
A legendary statement of new music from Japan – and a record that shows how far the Japanese free jazz scene had come in just a few short years! The album features some players who were working in much more straight styles a few years before, and others who were some of the boldest newcomers on the scene of the 70s – all performing at a top-shelf level that easily rivals some of the best free jazz coming from the European scene of the same stretch. All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Clay" by Yohsuke Yamashita Trio, Phase 12" by Masahiko Satoh's Garondoh, "Mass Projection" by New Direction For The Arts, "October Revolution" by Inoru Oki Quintet, "Inland Fish" by Motoharu Yoszhizawa, "Reminisce" by Masahiko Togasih & Masahiko Satoh, and "Ikisudoma Fetch" by Toshiyuki Miyama & His New Herd.

A searing entry into the Mojo Club series – and one that really shows the way the compilations have evolved over the years!

VariousStreet Sounds Presents – Jazz Funk Classics – Compiled By Morgan Khan (3CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $28.99
Don't think "jazz funk", think more "funky soul", or "soulful jazz" – as the collection here is filled with classic 70s gems that really blur the boundary between styles! Almost all these cuts have a strong jazz base at the core, but also bring in lots of funk and soul elements as well – from tight rhythms, to soaring vocals, to other key elements that helped lots of these tracks crossover big at the time – and still stay strong all these many years later! The package is a reworking of a classic series from the London scene in the 80s – a set of collections that was key to the rare groove scene at the time – and the 3CD set features 30 tracks that include "Whistle Bump" by Deodato, "Black Is The Color" by Wilbert Longmire, "El Bobo" by Webster Lewis, "Westchester Lady" by Bob James, "Let The Music Play" by Charles Earland, "Strut" by Chico Hamilton, "Rock Creek Park" by The Blackbyrds, "Inherit The Wind" by Wilton Felder with Bobby Womack, "Harlem River Drive" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Mister Magic" by Grover Washington, "Love Will Bring Us Back Together Again" by Roy Ayers, "Love Has Come Around" by Donald Byrd, "Expansions" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "Movin" by Brass Construction, "Always There" by Ronnie Laws, "Open Your Mind" by Kleeer, and lots lots more!

The soaring spirit of Blue Note Records – served up here with a really special twist to fit the mode of the Free Soul series! The package is overflowing with goodness – four hours' worth of listening, with a special focus on two periods of the label – that great late 60s/early 70s stretch when they were trying out so many new ideas and rhythms, including elements borrowed from soul, Latin, fusion, and Brazilian modes – and the more recent stretch that has seen Blue Note re-emerge as one of the most forward-thinking labels in jazz!
