RFC/Warner, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lost clubby soul with great production by Patrick Adams on half the LP and Leroy Burgess on the other half. Five great late 70s disco numbers laden with sweet jazzy arrangements, Adams' modern touch, and Burgess' funky vibe, helping to really set this album apart from the rest of the crowd. Includes the cuts "Shining", "It's My Turn", "Night Rider", "Where Are We Headed" and "He Said, She Said" – all great uptempo disco grooves! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Boney MNightflight To Venus ... LP
Atlantic/Hansa, 1978. Used Gatefold ... 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

Eddie HigginsIf Dreams Come True Vol 1 ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2004. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Warm, late nite work from the Eddie Higgins trio – that great 90s lineup that features Eddie on piano, Jay Leonhart on bass, and Joe Ascione on drums! It's hard to adequately get at the genius of these guys together in words – as their power is somewhat subtle, but damn effective – a way better sound than we might have ever expected from Eddie many years back, and the kind of a record that's really got us renewing our look at his talents! Higgins is both bold and sensitive on the set – masterful on the keys, yet quite unassuming as well – hard to peg adequately, but just the sort of strength that more than justifies all the tape the Venus Records label have spun on him in recent years. Titles on this first volume include "If Dreams Come True", "Summertime", "Into The Memory", and "Minor Swing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Richie BeirachWhat Is This Thing Called Love ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Richie Beirach swings nicely on some of this set, but also manages to kick back a bit on a few ballads too – dropping out of the heavier rhythm on the swingers from George Mraz on bass and Billy Hart on drums – to hit some mellower modes that really show off the sensitive side of his playing! The balance is great, and the record's the sort that makes us appreciate Beirach even more than before – a great reminder of his talents, on tracks that include "Leaving", "Night & Day", "Goodbye", "Autumn Leaves", "Pinocchio", and "Nardis".

✨✧ Joe FarnsworthMy Heroes (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Drummer Joe Farnsworth pays tribute to the greats of the 50s and 60s – Elvin Jones, Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, Max Roach, and others – in a smoking set that features his longtime musical companions Eric Alexander on tenor, Harold Mabern on piano, and Nat Reeves on bass! 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

Venus (Japan), 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pearls from the past, recast nicely by the swinging sounds of pianist David Hazeltine – who also brings a few of his own tunes to the set too! The groove here is surprisingly great – especially considering the classical look of the cover – but that's definitely what we'd expect with Peter Washington on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – both players who can really match the bold bursts of energy from Hazeltine's hands on the keyboard. Titles include the originals "Pearls" and "His Lordship" – plus versions of "My Old Flame", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", "Somewhere", and "Darn That Dream". CD

✨✧ Eddie HigginsBewitched ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great later work from Eddie Higgins – one of the excellent sets he's cut for Venus Records – a label who've really helped elevate him to a great new sound! Higgins was always great back in the day on the Chicago scene, but after the early 60s his work was really sporadic – so the solidity of a date like this is even more impressive – given that it cements Eddie's understated reputation as one of the best piano stylists of his generation. Jay Leonhart is on bass and Joe Ascione's on drums – and titles include "Angel Eyes", "Estate", "Detour Ahead", "Bewitched", and "Blue Prelude". CD

✨✧ Harold MabernFantasy (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little swinger from pianist Harold Mabern – a set that's got all his best warm, lyrical tones firmly intact – but one that also has a great sense of groove too! The mighty Joe Farnsworth's in the trio on drums, and we're certain we've got him to thank for the solid sound of the record – as he gives the date the kind of swing that you'd find in the best Mabern sessions from many years back, or on some of the excellent recent dates both the pianist and drummer cut in the company of saxophonist Eric Alexander. Bassist Dwayne Bruno rounds out the trio, and titles include "Jackson Park El Train", "The Sidewinder", "Harlem Dawn", "Lollipops & Roses", "Sesame Street", and "Fantasy". CD

✨✧ Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Harold MabernDon't Know Why (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2003. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Damn! We love the work of Harold Mabern – we loved it in the 60s, saw it grow a bit more in the 70s, lost it a bit in the 80s, but have been especially happy to see it snap back beautifully from the 90s onward – really hitting new heights on great records like this! The album pairs Mabern once again with drummer Joe Farnsworth – a player who almost seems minted to get the best groove out of Harold – that kind of freewheeling, lyrical, all-soul style that was always unlike any other player we could think of. And although the pair have had some great runs together in the company of Eric Alexander, they're also sounding wonderful here in a trio setting – working with bassist Nat Reeves, who fits right in the middle perfectly. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "Blues For David", "Nightlife In Tokyo", "Cabu", "Dreamy", and "Edward Lee". CD

Venus (Japan), 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sublime sadness from saxophonist Phil Woods – a beautiful session of ballads blown with string backings, all wrapped up in a late nite sense of darkness that's really great! Arrangements for the strings are by Andy Stein, and the core trio features Bill Charlap on piano – but Woods is clearly center stage here, blowing long moody lines on a host of familiar standards that are transformed here by his sensitivity and soul. One of the best recent sessions we've heard from Phil, with titles that include "Easy To Love", "You Go To My Head", "And When We're Young", "I Get Along Without You Very Well", "Solitude", "If I Should Lose You", and "The Nearness Of You".

Venus (Japan), 1994. Used ... 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

Calibro 35Space ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
Wonderful work from Calibro 35 – a funky combo who just seem to get better and better with each new record! These guy started out in territory that was strongly influenced by older Italian soundtrack material – which they could copy with effortless ease – but this time around, they really seem to have found their own voice – kind of a cosmic approach to keyboard funk that's every bit as spacey as the cover! There's still plenty of 70s elements in the mix – and the rhythms have all the heavy grooves you'd love in a cop/crime soundtrack – but the instrumentation is often a lot more complex, and really reaching for new sounds too – using both keyboards and electronics along with acoustic elements on woodwinds and percussion – plus some other cool sounds that we can't figure out at all. Titles include "Across 111th Sun", "74 Days After Landing", "Bandits On Mars","Brain Trap", "Violent Venus", "Universe Of 10 Dimensions", "Serenade For A Satellite", and "A Future We Never Lived".

Miles DavisBirth Of The Cool ... LP
Capitol, Late 40s/Early 50s. Good+ ... $19.99
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. Titles include "Jeru", "Move", "Venus De Milo", "Budo", and "Deception". LP, Vinyl record album

Mladen FrankoAmazing Space (Amazing Space Vol 1/Amazing Space Vol 2) ... CD
Sonoton/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of totally wonderful albums from sound library composer Mladen Franko – both originally released by the Sonoton label in Germany, and presented here as a single CD! Franko's less well-known than some of his bigger European contemporaries, but has a similarly deft hand with a groove in this setting – an ability to focus quickly on a key rhythm part and hip instrumental twist, with an especially strong approach to keyboards – which range from Rhodes-y groovy to spacey moogy! Mladen played all the instruments himself, but the overall feel is more in a classic sound library studio mode – and although both records were issued in 1980, they have a sound that's much more mid 70s overall. Titles include "Venus & Aquarius", "Back From Wonderland", "Sound Safari", "Wind In Your Hair", "Midnight Party", "Yellow Baloon", "Melancholy Girl", "Lazy Daisy", "Leading Star", and "Clown Town".

Azar LawrenceSeeker ... CD
Sunnyside, 2014. Used ... $6.99
Tremendous work from Azar Lawrence – part of a great return to form the reedman has had in recent years – and, if anything, a run of music that's maybe even greater than his legendary sides from the 70s! Lawrence is razor-sharp throughout – spinning out bold, soulful lines on tenor and soprano sax – with a quintet that includes Nicholas Payton on trumpet, Benito Gonzalez on piano, Essiet Okon Essiet on bass, and Jeff Tain Watts on drums! Payton's got a fire that may well surpass his own recent albums – and Lawrence provides a set of original compositions that soar to the stars from the very first note – really wonderful tunes that include "Venus Rising", "Gandhi", "Lost Tribes Of Lemuria", "The Seeker", "One More Time", and "Rain Ballad".

Seminal work from the legendary Gil Melle – one of his early 10" sessions for Blue Note, prime 50s modern jazz from the original Melle cover right down to the music in the grooves! The session features 2 different groups, and has Melle's haunting tenor (not baritone) playing amidst other bop-era modernists like Eddie Bert, Tal Farlow, George Wallington, and Max Roach – coming together on tunes that are as magical as the titles might imply – "Mars", "Four Moons", "Sunset Concerto", "The Gears", "October", "Cyclotron", and "Venus". Monica Dell also sings some incredible wordless vocals on a few tunes! LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest Blue Note albums of all time!

Apple, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Beautifully spacey work from the Modern Jazz Quartet – a record that more than earns its enigmatic title! 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

Gimmer NicholsonChristopher Idyll (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99 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

Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $8.99
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". Features two bonus tracks – "Weekend (12" disco mix)" and "Have A Good Day (12" disco mix)". CD

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". CD

The core album here is filled with instrumental readings of various 60s dance modes – which makes for some nicely grooving, nicely jaunty titles that really let the group show off their guitar chops – and the CD adds in 22 more bonus tracks from a variety of 60s albums and singles – to make for a guitar party that never lets up throughout! Titles include "Gravy", "Lucille", "Poison Ivy", "The Wah Watusi", "Spudnik", "Hot Summer", "Scratch", "Calcutta", "Venus", "The Intruder", "Silver City", "Ginchy", "2000 Pound Bee", "Driving Guitars", and "Home".

RPM (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $26.99
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.

Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
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.

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

Excellent Japanese LP that combines 2 of Gil Melle's rare 10" LPs for Blue Note: New Faces – New Sounds and The Gil Melle Quintet. The first LP features 2 different groups, and has Melle's haunting tenor playing amidst other bop-era modernists like Eddie Bert, Tal Farlow, George Wallington, and Max Roach. Tracks on this session include "The Gears", "October", "Cyclotron", and "Venus". The Quintet LP features Melle on tenor and baritone, playing with Tal Farlow and Urbie Green – and it includes the tracks "Timepiece", "Spellbound", and "Transition". Both sets are amazing, and the music is out-of-this world – with a sound that's unlike anything Blue Note ever did again, and which transcends any sort of traditional descriptions of jazz from the time.
