Venus Dodson has some great help here – top-shelf talent who really help her find her groove on both tracks! Leroy Burgess produced and arranged "Shining" – a track that definitely lives up to its title with a soaring, soulful groove – presented here in a special Tee Scott mix! Patrick Adams helped on "He Said She Said" – grooving the tune in a bubbling, buoyant rhythm that's totally great! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Boney MNightflight To Venus ... LP
Atlantic/Hansa, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice bit of space age disco fantasy from Boney M – a set that's got a few more electronic touches than some of the group's other records, but which still continues in a straight ahead poppy vein! There's a sound here that's arguably a bit more sophisticated than before – especially on some of the rhythms, which almost hint at Bohannon like complexity at the bottom. There's almost a bit more club appeal than you might expect – although other tunes are definitely more the stuff of hotel lobby dancefloors than warehouse parties in New York. Titles include "King Of The Road", "Nightflight To Venus", "Voodoonight", "Brown Girl In the Ring", "Heart Of Gold", and the hit version of "Rivers Of Babylon". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
A whole new setting for tenorist Eric Alexander – and a great one too! The album's got Alexander in a bossa-styled mode – but less like the facile bossa jazz projects of the 60s than some of the harder-edged ones you'd get from players like Ike Quebec or Charlie Rouse! The sharpness of the rhythms have a good deal to do with the strength of the record – played by familiar Alexander associates Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but at a level that's very different than their usual accompaniment, which really shows their diversity. Titles include "Recado Bossa Nova", "Corcovado", "Manteca", "Journey", "So In Love", and "Mambo Inn". CD

✨✧ Eric AlexanderJust One Of Those Things ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful setting for the tenor genius of Eric Alexander – a freewheeling trio, which is a format we're not sure we've ever heard him in before – really stretching out in an amazing way, with the sense of of imagination that we've always loved in his music, but with a depth that takes him farther than most of his usual recordings too! We're not sure what happened, but there's a new sort of edge in Eric's horn – one that might well come from the sublime work of Dezron Douglas on bass and Neal Smith on drums – but which might just be Alexander deciding to take off and really blow us away – which he does throughout the set, with a sense of spirituality that we haven't heard from him before. The whole thing's amazing – and titles include "Wise One", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "You Say You Care", "Beautiful Love", "Bessie's Blues", "Russian Lullaby", and "We've Only Just Begun".

✨✧ Eddie AllenRemembrance ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Eddie Allen was a relatively young trumpeter at the time of this date – but he's got some very solid grounding from a mature trio that features Kenny Barron on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Carl Allen on drums! On another label, like Muse, the set might have a rougher sort of feel – but here, on Venus, it comes across with a nice degree of focus and class – never too overly thought-out, but still with a direction that really works well for Allen's soulful trumpet and flugelhorn lines. Titles include "Remembrance", "Baptized In The Fire", "It's The Nights I Like", "Nudge", and "The Spoiler". CD

✨✧ One For All (Eric Alexander, Jim Rotondi, et al)Killer Joe ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure genius from a great lineup – an assortment of players who've made quite a name recording sets like this one for the Japanese market! Tenorist Eric Alexander is very firmly in place on the set – giving it the same gentle soul and well-crafted sound as his own great albums – and other players include Jim Rotondi on trumpet, David Hazeltine on piano, Joe Farnsworth on drums, and Steve Davis on trombone. The horns in the frontline are beautifully poised throughout – tightly crackling on the head arrangements, then breaking out in soulful solos – in a way that reminds us a lot of some of the legendary work by the Benny Golson-Art Farmer Jazztet. It's no surprise that the group covers the Jazztet standard "Killer Joe" – and the album also features great versions of Duke Pearson's "You Know I Care" and Ahmad Jamal's "Night Mist Blues" – plus originals "Island" and "Hot Sake".

There's a vibe here that's different than other recent dates from this well-matched team – as the players are definitely trying to skew their sounds differently with each number dedicated to a different drummer – especially Alexander and Mabern, who really match Farnsworth's energy as he changes things up. Titles include "Syeeda's Song Flute", "Two Bass Hit", "Reflection", "George's Dilemma", and "Cute". CD

Legendary work from Miles Davis – large group sessions that virtually define the "cool" in cool jazz! The work's quite different from Davis' earlier bop sides with Charlie Parker – and show a distinct influence from modernists like Gerry Mulligan (who is on the recordings) and from the experiments of the Tristano school. Miles is less the leader than the creative visionary – as all players come together in a perfect blend of sound, perfectly polished, and with a very dark edge.

Black Jazz, 1974. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Brilliant basswork from Henry Franklin – one of the hippest cats handling his instrument on the west coast in the 70s – working here with a wicked ensemble of soulful, righteous players! Franlin's bass sets the tone of the record right from the very first note – but the album's a very collaborative effort, too – and features Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Charles Owens on tenor, Bill Henderson on soprano sax, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Kirk Lightsey on both piano and flute! The legendary David Durrah plays piano on two tracks – his own "Waltz for "Boobuss" and "Venus Fly Trap" – and the Sisters Happiness sing vocals on the latter cut, too. Other titles include "Blue Lights", "Soft Spirit", and a version of Chick Corea's "What Was". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 1997 to 2000 ... CD
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2000. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99
Excellent work from one of the most important production teams of recent times! Jazzanova have sharply defined the modern European taste for Brazilian and Latin-inflected grooves on the dancefloor – beginning in the mid 90s with work for the (then) new Compost Records imprint, and working up to present days with countless remix efforts for other artists. Sadly, Jazzanova have yet to cut an album of their own work – and this double-length set is probably the best full way to experience their rich talents. It features 20 tracks in all, many with a strong Brazilian or bossa flavor, and most with a tight dancefloor approach to jazz. Titles include "We Who Are Not As Others" by 4 Hero, "Soul Power" by Marcshmellows, "Carajillo" by Truby Trio, "Get Into My Groove" by Incognito, "Amazon Adventure" by Azymuth, "Words Of Love" by Soul Bossa Trio, "Welcome To The Party" by Har-You Percussion Group, "Planet Of Breaks" by Visit Venus, "Burnin" by Tate's Place, "Toda Tersafeira" by Soul Quality Quartet, "Circe" by Ursula Rucker, "Fifths" by Ski, and "Complete Life" by Liquid Lounge – all remixed by Jazzanova!

Sven LibaekSolar Flares ... LP
Peer/Votary (Australia), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Sublime sound library work from mid 70s Australia – one of the greatest records ever from soundtrack genius Sven Libaek, done in collaboration with a host of the greatest Aussie jazz players of the time! The groove here is laidback, but funky – almost dreamy at times, in the manner of a sweet Italian soundtrack – but also with a flowing groove that seems to draw both from bossa nova and west coast jazz of previous years, yet turn these influences into a whole new sound entirely. Most of the tunes are small combo, and feature reeds from Don Burrows and Erroll Buddle, guitar from George Golla, and vibes from the amazing John Sangster – all wrapped up by Sven with an approach that's almost effortless at times – never too forced, nor too slick – and a fair bit different than music of this type coming from other hemispheres in the 70s! Titles include "Solar Flares", "Stella Maris", "Lift Off", "Destination Omega 3", "Space Walk", "Meteoric Rain", "Quasars", "No Flowers On Venus", and "In Nebular Orbit". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest Blue Note albums of all time! Hank Mobley leads an incredibly soulful group that includes Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, McCoy Tyner, and Billy Higgins – and the group plays this amazing mix of soul jazz and modal grooves that is hardly matched by anything else in the Blue Note catalog. Every cut is a winner, and titles include "Venus Di Mildew", "The Morning After", and "Ace Duce Trey". Fantastic material all the way through, with tracks that will stay in your head for years – and one of the greatest jazz album covers ever! LP, Vinyl record album

Gimmer NicholsonChristopher Idyll (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 29.98
A dream of a guitar record from the Memphis scene of the late 60s – recorded as one of the first albums on the Ardent Records label, but never issued at the time – although done in a style that's a lot more like some of the guitar explorations by John Fahey or Robbie Basho on the Takoma label, with maybe some of the trippy qualities Vanguard albums by Peter Walker or Sandy Bull! Gimmer Nicholson never got the due of any of those artists, but his playing here fits right in with their better-known legacies – really evocative, expressive, almost experimental work on acoustic guitar – shimmering with almost ocean-like tones as waves of sound, and with special fingering that's quite different than traditional folk or blues modes. Gimmer uses a bit of delay on the record – again, in ways that are similar to other groundbreaking acoustic records of the time – at a level that seems to only increase the inspiration in the core performance, not get in its way. Titles include "Millennial Harbinger", "Hermetic Waltz", "Venus Cumulus", "Wesak", and "Red & White Light Ship". LP, Vinyl record album

David Bowie's on the cover, but the music here is from a much wider array of musical sources – in a surprising array of instrumental and vocal tracks that really live up to the madness of the famous film! The key contributor here is John Phillips – who not only gives us some excellent vocal tracks that are in the manner of his Wolfking album, but also handles a few instrumental numbers that are pretty compelling – and offset by more offbeat percussion tracks by Stomu Yamashta, who's the other key artist on the original material! There's also some familiar pop moments from Louis Armstrong and the Kingston Trio – but most of the music is original. Titles include "America", "Jazz", "Rhumba Boogie", "Space Capsule", "Desert Shack", "Window", "Alberto", "Liar Liar", "Jazz II", and "Bluegrass Breakdown" by John Phillips; "Poker Dice", "Wind Words", "Mandala", "One Way", "Memory Of Hiroshima", and "33 1/3" by Stomu Yamashta; "Venus" and "Mars" by The Bournemouth Symphony; "Love Is Coming Back" by Genevive Waite; and "Blueberry Hill" by Louis Armstrong.

✨✧ PhreekPatrick Adams Presents Phreek (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. Used ... $9.99
One of the biggest 70s moments from underground club maestro Patrick Adams – an amazing talent who's best known for his work on his own P&P family of record labels – but who steps out here with an even tighter sound! The album's brimming with the sorts of sweet moogy touches that Adams always brought to his work – that heavy use of cosmic keyboards that's continued to have a huge influence for years to come. But in addition to the spacey disco grooves on the bottom, the set's also got some great vocal help too – as Patrick brings in some heavy talents from the underground – including Leroy Burgess, Venus Dodson, and Donna McGhee – all of whom add a heck of a lot to the set! Titles include the seminal club track "Weekend", plus "I'm A Big Freak", "Have A Good Day", "Everybody Loves A Good Thing", "May My Love Be With You" and "Much Too Much". CD

Elektra, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The masterful debut of Television! Marquee Moon is indisputably one of best records to come out of late 70s NYC . It's truly a singular achievement – one of the few records that seems to be on every rock literati's list of the all-time-bests – and actually deserves every bit of praise it gets! The guitars and vocals are bristling with all the post-punk energy of the lower east side in the 70s – but stands out for the off kilter melodicism and the extraordinary guitar heroism, courtesy Tom Verlaine. A genuine classic! Includes "See No Evil", "Venus", "Friction", "Marquee Moon", "Elevation", "Guiding Light", "Prove It" and "Torn Curtain". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe ThomasFeelin's From Within ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
The Ebony Godfather is grooving here with a set of fuller backings – sweet clubby funk, arranged and conducted by Brad Baker (of B Baker Chocolate Company fame) – all as a showcase for Joe's sweet work on flute and tenor sax! There's a fair bit of keyboards on the tunes – played by Pat Rebillot and Barry Miles – and Steve Gadd's playing the drums on the date, which helps the rhythms keep a bit of an edge, even amidst the larger backing. Some cuts have backing chorus vocals, in a style used on other Thomas albums – and although definitely touched by a bit of disco fever, the album's still got a jazzy element too – like some of the crossover club sessions on the Kudu label from the 70s! Titles include "Funky Fever", "Feelins From Within", "Polarizer", "Coco", "Galaxy Dreamin", and "Venus". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1967. Very Good- ... $149.99
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAnother Splash Of Colour – New Psychedelia In Britain 1980 to 1985 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99
A really well-done set – one that brings together a very diverse se of tracks, along with a huge booklet of notes – all to focus on the surprising revival of psychedelic sounds in the UK during the early 80s! Unlike the psych revival in the US – which was mostly confined to the paisley underground of the period – the return of fuzz and freak really took a wide array of forms in England in the years after the initial rise of punk – from groups that returned to a core garagey style that was almost pre-psych, to others who maybe tripped out on solos even more than those in the past, to some who fused the best elements of the genre with more contemporary UK pop modes, and others who paved the way for the big Brit indie boom of the C86 years – sometimes even nudging the music surprisingly far in the charts! All those styles are here – and plenty more too – in a mighty nice box set that features 64 tracks in all – with titles that include "Keep Your Voice Down" by The Earwigs, "I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape" by The Times, "Slow Patience" by The Attractions, "Endless River" by The Brainaic Five, "Do I Have To Be Here" by The Way Out, "Sunspots" by Julian Cope, "Hilly Fields" by Nick Nicely, "Wivenhoe Bells II" by Cleaners From Venus, "Work" by Blue Orchids, "Night Of The Jackal" by Charlie Harper, "Pass Myself" by Third Eye, "Still Dreaming" by Marble Staircase, "A Day Out With Jeremy Chester" by Biff Bang Pow, "Where Are You" by The Primevals, and "Dancing In My Mind" by The High Tide.

Never-heard songs from the Motown empire of the 60s – all new discoveries from the label's mighty deep vaults – all of them totally great tracks that make for a superb new look at the Detroit powerhouse of soul! Many of these cuts are in a Northern Soul mode – the kind of upbeat groovers that made Motown a huge favorite on the British scene right from the start, and which make the UK Kent label a perfect spot to showcase work this great – with detailed notes on all the tracks, excellent sound quality, and an impeccable ear for choosing just the right sort of tracks to pop a groove like the bigger singles from the label. Some of the cuts here are early recordings by artists who'd later break big, others are more obscure Motown acts – and the package features 24 titles that include "Goose Wobbling Time" by Popcorn Wylie, "I'll Be Satisfied" by Frank Wilson, "Where Are You" by Ivy Jo, "One Track Mind" by Marv Johnson, "Heart To Heart" by Earl Van Dyke, "Head Over Heels In Love With You Baby" by Edwin Starr, "I'm Here Now That You Need Me" by The Fantastic Four, "Imagination Is Running Wild" by The Spinners, "The In Crowd" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Wish I Didn't Love You So" by The Monitors, "The Touch Of Venus" by Marvin Gaye, "I'd Rather Forget" by The Temptations, and "Kissing In The Shadows" by Johnny Bristol.

Bebop, 2013. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest sets we've ever heard from bassist Robert Hurst – and that's saying a lot in comparison with some of his other work! The lineup here is totally great – with Robert Glasper on Fender Rhodes and piano, Branford Marsalis on tenor and soprano sax, Marculs Belgrave on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Benny Maupin on alto flute, bass clarinet, tenor, and soprano too! These players really help give the record a rich sound right from the start – free-flying colors and tones that are only deepened by Hurst's commanding work on acoustic bass – and driven nicely by Jeff Tain Watts on drums. All titles were written and arranged by Hurst – some of his best music to date – and titles include "Tigers On Venus", "Big Queen", "3 For Lawrence", "Little Queen", and "Indiscreet In Da Street".

The session's an odd one – in that the MJQ are recording for the Beatles' famous Apple label – but that fact is also one of the best aspects of the record, as it seems to push the group past the staid third stream sound of some of their 60s recordings for Atlantic, into territory that's a bit more experimental, and concerned with sound, colors, and texture. The album's got 2 incredible originals from John Lewis – "Visitor From Mars" and "Visitor From Venus" – plus the tracks "Dilemma" and "Adagio From Concierto De Aranjuez". LP, Vinyl record album

Quadrophonic Sound, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The QPSM unit have grown tremendously since their last outing – sounding really amazing here, with a vibe that takes us back to the glory days of the 70s spiritual jazz scene on Strata East! The music here is all composed by David Durrah, who's with the group for the recording on piano – playing with these bold, soaring lines that are wonderful – very expansive, expressive chords that have a great post-Coltrane sensibility – creating righteous energy amidst a lineup that also features Sabir Mateen on tenor, Alex Harding on baritone, Clark Gayton on trombone, Salim Washington on tenor and oboe, and Radu Ben Judah on bass. There's lots of great percussion in the group, too – and a few cuts feature vocals by singers who include Patsy Grant, Ronnell Bey, and Tschaka Tonge – who all add in this extra layer of spirituality to the record! Beautiful beautiful work from a group we never expected to reach these heights – and a record that has an instantly timeless sense of soul and beauty. Titles include "Silent Inferno", "Angelic Streams", "Great Symbolisms", "Venus Fly Trap", "That's How I Feel Ra (retrack)", and "Orion Nebula". CD
