Joe FarnsworthMy Heroes (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
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

Eddie HigginsIf Dreams Come True Vol 1 ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2004. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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

Phil WoodsSouvenirs ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1994. Used ... $6.99
A Phil Woods album that's as upbeat and colorful as its cover – one of those great overlooked later recordings by Phil, of the sort that always make digging through his catalog so rewarding! Woods has a great sense of swing here – but one that's never too formulaic or forced – a very organic, spontaneous groove that seems to come strongly from company that includes Brian Lynch on trumpet, Jim McNeely on piano, Steve Gilmore on bass, and Bill Goodwin on drums. Titles include the groovy "CK's Bossa", plus "Peer Pressure", "Song For Sisyphus", "Souvenir", and "Ballad For Hank". CD

✨✧ Pharoah SandersBallads With Love (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An all-ballad album from Pharoah Sanders, but one that's still plenty darn great – and blown with all the depth of soul you might expect from his classics! The tunes are mostly familiar, but taken at a really easygoing, open sort of level – somewhat similar to the ballad work that Archie Shepp cut once he started coming back inside at the end of the 70s – still with some sharper sounds around the edges, and an approach to the tunes that's informed by a previous history of farther-reaching, more experimental sounds. The rest of the group features William Henderson on piano, Charles Fambrough on bass, and Sherman Ferguson on drums – and titles include "Light At The End Of The World", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Body & Soul", "Too Young To Go Steady", and "Misty".

Venus (Japan), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mellow magic from pianist Eddie Higgins – one of those players whose work seems to get even better with age – deepened a lot more in feeling than on his earlier records, and recorded beautifully by the folks at Venus Records! The album's heavy on ballads, but also features a few subtle swingers too – all the kind of gentle numbers that really let Eddie hit his stride on the piano – working this simple magic that's really won us over in recent years. Jay Leonhart plays bass, Joe Ascione plays drums, and titles include "More Than You Know", "Nardis", "Witchcraft", "Again", "I Remember Clifford", "Dear Old Stockholm", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

✨✧ Eddie Higgins & Scott HamiltonMy Foolish Heart ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
Scott Hamilton and Eddie Higgins are a pretty great pair together – as you'll hear on this recent date for Japan's Venus Records! Hamilton's got a lot of tradition in his horn, and Higgins a fair bit in his piano too – although Eddie's way of shaping a tune is also very much his own thing in these later years, and that sense of sound really helps Scott find a freshness in his tenor that we might not expect! Tunes are a mix of smokey ballads and a few gentle swingers – and titles include "Night & Day", "Embraceable You", "Russian Lullaby", "My Foolish Heart", "The More I See You", and "Skylark". CD

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

Popul VuhNosferatu ... CD
Spalax (France), 1978. Used ... $9.99
The spooky soundtrack to Werner Herzog's remake of Nosferatu from the late 70s – featuring a spare, moody score that's quite different than some of Popul Vuh's other work. The music almost seems to bubble out of the ground like Nosferatu himself coming out of his coffin in the minutes after dusk – using light electronics to set a tone, but also employing a bit of what seems to be flute, plus occasional acoustic guitar, which has a very striking effect in this setting. Titles include "Mantra I", "Die Nacht Derhimmel", "Through Pains To Heaven II", "On The Way", and "Venus Principal". CD

TelevisionMarquee Moon (180 gram pressing) ... LP
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 ... $9.99
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

El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Not just a beach party from The Ventures, but a whole celebration of instrumental guitar rock – served up in the kind of tight, groovy styles the group always did so well! 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".

VariousAnother Splash Of Colour – New Psychedelia In Britain 1980 to 1985 (3CD set) ... CD
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.

VariousOne Track Mind – More Motown Guys ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
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.

✨✧ Lee MorganRumproller (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album by Lee Morgan – and one not to pass up! The Rumproller often gets too easily lumped next to The Sidewinder – because of an obvious title and cover similarity to that hit record – but like that one, the album's far more than jazz cliche – and shows Lee Morgan to be one of the greatest jazz musicians of the 60s. The set starts off with the title cut, "The Rumproller" – hard-wailing soul bop, in the manner of Lee's most popular work – but then it easily flows into more sensitive material that has a freer, lyrical feel – like the great original tune "Eclipso" and Wayne Shorter's "Edda" – both of which are superb. Lee is astounding, as always, on trumpet – and the rest of the group includes the great Ronnie Matthews on piano, plus Joe Henderson, Victor Sproles, and Billy Higgins. Plus, this CD reissue features a bonus track – Shorter's "Venus Di Mildew", a great composition! CD

✨✧ Gerry MulliganGerry Mulligan Songbook (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gerry Mulligan meets up with a great array of 50s modernists here – in specially setting dedicated to all Mulligan-penned compositions! Although a radical player himself on the baritone sax, Gerry also added something strong to the 50s jazz catalog with his great tunes from the early days – gently modern numbers that slowly became standards over the years, thanks to respect from other players. The best of these tracks are showcased here – played by Mulligan with a sax section that includes Zoot Sims on alto and tenor, Al Cohn on tenor and baritone, Lee Konitz on alto, and Allan Eager on alto and tenor. Rhythm is by the piano-less section of Freddie Green on guitar, Henry Grimes on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – and titles include "Venus De Milo", "Revelation", "Sextet", "Turnstyle", "Four & One More", "Crazy Day", and "Disc Jockey Jump". CD also features 4 bonus tracks, too! CD

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico (2 CD Deluxe Edition) ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". 2 CD version features the complete stereo mix of the LP plus the 4 tracks from Nico's Chesea Girl that featured the Velvets on the first disc. Disc 2 features the mono mix of the LP (first time on CD in the US), plus the single versions of "All Tomorrow's Parties", "I'll Be Your Mirror", "Sunday Morning" and "Femme Fatale". Other LP tracks include "The Black Angels Death Song", "I'm Waiting For My Man", "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "There She Goes Again", and "I'll Be Your Mirror". The Chelsea Girl tracks are "Little Sister", "Winter Song", "It Was A Pleasure Then, "Chelsea Girls", and "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams". 31 in all. CD

Capitol, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Titles include "Back Quadrant", "Prime Meridian", "South Heading", "Tycho Brahe", "Transit Of Venus", and "Course Made Good". CD

Blue Note (Japan), Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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. Very nice, and just about the only way you'll find this material on LP! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PhreekPatrick Adams Presents Phreek (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Drag City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The legendary album from Mayo Thompson – pared down with more of an outsider folk rock vibe after the freaky psych of the first couple Red Krayola – and ultimately just as trailblazing! Mayo's voice and skewed songcraft are front and center, though there's piano, organ, fiddle, slide guitar, bass and drums coming in and out, too, but whether or not it was forthright goal, Mayo's weird lyricism is the star of the show, and you can hear the influence this record had on myriad underground rock figures in the decades that followed! Includes "The Lesson", "Oyster Thin", "Horses", "Dear Betty Baby", "Venus In The Morning", "To Black Legs", "Good Brisk Blues", "Around The Home" and "Worried Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mladen FrankoAmazing Space (Amazing Space Vol 1/Amazing Space Vol 2) ... CD
Sonoton/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
