Slick RickMistakes Of A Woman In Love With Other Men (LP, inst, acapella, rmx)/ Venus (LP) ... 12-inch
Def Jam/Rush, 1991. Very Good (pic cover)... $3.99
Two from "The Ruler's Back" LP. Maybe "Mistakes of..." isn't first on most people's list of Slick Rick classics, but still a nice one from Rick's glory days, with a little more spare beats and bassline production on the remix. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has waviness and flaking due to moisture along the bottom 3 inches and a cutout hole.)

Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
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

Eddie AllenRemembrance ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1994. Used ... $18.99
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

Joe FarnsworthMy Heroes (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
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

Jay LeonhartFly Me To The Moon (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2003. Used Gatefold ... $6.99
A tribute to Ray Brown, played by a trio that features Jay Leonhart in Ray's role on bass – alongside the piano of Benny Green and guitar of Joe Cohn! Given the setup, there's a bit of an Oscar Peterson 50s vibe to the music – that great spirit forged during the years Brown and Peterson made some really wonderful grooves together – and the lack of any drums really allows Jay even more space than usual to throw in his two cents – ringing out in these round, warm tones – of the sort that Brown virtually invented in the postwar years. Titles include "Dream Dancing", "Skylark", "On The Street Where You Live", "When Lights Are Low", and "Fly Me To The Moon". CD

Venus (Japan), 2004. Near Mint- ... $36.99
The Super Trio takes on Super Standards – familiar tunes swung soulfully by a group that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Jay Leonhart on bass, and Al Foster on drums! But in addition to the evergreens you might normally expect on a record like this, the set also features some standout jazz standards too – versions of "Cleopatra's Dream", "Doxy", and "Stolen Moments" – which slide in nicely alongside takes on "Yesterdays", "All Of Me", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and "Misty".

✨✧ Eddie Higgins TrioHaunted Heart ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
Part of the late 90s rise to genius from pianist Eddie Higgins – a set of simple, lyrical beauty that really holds up well over the years – one of those classics that were cut away from the age of the classics – the sort of record that Eddie should have been making many decades back, although we're more than happy he reached this point later in his career! The trio here features Ben Riley on drums and Ray Drummond on bass, a really great rhythm compliment to Higgins' work on piano – and titles include "Stolen Moments/Israel", "My Funny Valentine", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Haunted Heart", "Lush Life", "Isn't It Romantic", and "I Should Care".

Venus (Japan), 2004. Used ... 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

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".

John ColtraneLegacy (4CD set) ... CD
Impulse, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4 CDs ... $13.99
A fantastic set of work by John Coltrane – a 4CD box set that's a lasting tribute to his genius, featuring mostly music from his best years at Impulse Records, plus selected bits from earlier years! The set features tracks selected by Ravi Coltrane, plus bonus material from the Coltrane family, an essay by Amiri Baraka, and some previously unissued material (where do they keep turning up all this stuff, anyway?) The package starts with Trane's more down to earth years, then picks up speed nicely as his music soared to the heavens on spiritual wings. Titles include "Nature Boy (first version)", "Venus", "Compassion", "Stablemates", "A Love Supreme (part 1)", "Offering", "Iris", "After The Rain", "Naima", "Miles Mode", "Liberia", "Village Blues", "Up Gainst The Wall", "Serenity", "Two Bass Hit", "One UP One Down (long version)', and "I Want To Talk About You".

Azar LawrenceSeeker ... CD
Sunnyside, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
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".

Gil MelleNew Faces – New Sounds (10 inch LP) (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
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

Modern Jazz QuartetSpace ... CD
Apple (UK), 1969. Used ... $12.99
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". CD

PhreekPatrick Adams Presents Phreek (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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

Spotnicks/Russ Garcia/Ron GoodwinOut Of This World (Music In Orbit/Fantastica) ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $13.99
Space age pop galore – from a trio of very groovy sources! The Spotnicks start out the set with three cool guitar instrumentals – "Telstar", "Moonshot", and "Rocket Man" – done in their great blend of Ventures guitar modes and offbeat Joe Meek production styles – with a sound that's years ahead of its time! Next is the excellent album Out Of This World – from Brit arranger Ron Goodwin, with production by the legendary George Martin! The album was billed as Music In Orbit here in the US – and is a wonderful album of space-age easy listening! The album features no electronics, but Goodwin's use of soaring strings is somewhere between the Fantastic Planet soundtrack and some of the later moogy albums in the 60s. Scoring is richly sophisticated, with a complicated approach to the material that would befit a high-end 50s sci-fi soundtrack – made even better by the excellent cover, which features a beautiful purple painting of a rocket blasting off of a planet in space. The whole thing's perhaps a bit more romantic than spooky, but the mood changes nicely from track to track to keep things fresh. Titles include "The Moon", "The Venus Waltz", "Mercury Gets The Message", "The Sun", "Jumping Jupiter", and "Martians On Parade". Last up is Russ Garcia's Fantastica – one of the space-age bachelor pad electronic classics! Russ Garcia was mostly a jazz arranger in his day – but he does a good job of scoring some moody sci-fi tracks for this set – mixing full orchestrations with some great electronics handled by Ted Keep, all in a format that replicates a journey through the universe – with stops at lots of unusual galaxies along the way! The album's got a great mix of complicated strings and woodwinds, which offset the spooky electronics nicely – and although playful, the record also represents some of Garcia's most serious scoring on record. Titles include "Into Space", "Nova", "Monster's Of Jupiter", "Red Sands Of Mars", and "Moon Rise". CD

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used ... $2.99
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".

Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 1997 to 2000 ... LP
Jazzanova/Compost (Germany), 2000. Very Good+ 5LP box ... Just Sold Out!
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 19 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 Marschmellows, "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!

One of the greatest recordings ever made by John Coltrane in his late years – a spare set of duets with drummer Rashied Ali, recorded in 1967, but never issued until after his death! Trane and Ali play in a free spiritualist mode, with no other accompaniment – making for a very unique album, especially for the time, and setting the tone for years of New York improvisation in the 70s.

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". 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

Beautiful record, beautiful cover, and a fantastic bit of space age bachelor pad listening. The arrangements have a bit more of a romantic twist than the usual stuff from this era, but they're in keeping with Revel's classic Music Out Of the Moon and Music For Peace Of Mind. The arrangments here are mostly orchestral, but they get kind of wild, and there's lots of weird vocal bits, and what seems to be some occasional electronics. Titles include "Jupiter Jumps", "Polaris", "Asterodiana", and "Vibrations From Venus". The cover is beautiful, too, and features an ethereal maiden with flowing hair, transposed against an image of the galaxy! LP, Vinyl record album

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".

The first-ever full release of material from the Velvet Underground's amazing run at The Matrix in San Francisco – part of which were issued previously on the Robert Quine collection, all finally out together in one overstuffed set! If you only know the Velvets in the studio, the group in a live setting is something else entirely – often a lot noisier and more unbridled, with especially strong interplay on the guitars – cascading sheets and layers of sound that show just how strongly these guys were influencing generations to come – years ahead of their time, with styles that few others would touch until the Sonic Youth generation! Quine's tapes are great, and full of fire – and there's lots of improvisation going on that makes versions of the same song sound quite different. Plus, some of the tracks here are ones that later appeared on Loaded – worked out in live versions long before the group took them in the studio – all in a whopping 42 tracks on 4CDs, with titles that include "Heroin", "Sweet Jane", "Rock & Roll", "I Can't Stand It", "White Light/White Heat", "Ocean", "We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together", "Lisa Says", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", "Over You", "Some Kinda Love", "Sweet Bonnie Brown/Too Much", "After Hours", "Pale Blue Eyes", "Venus In Furs", "Black Angel's Death Song", "There Shoe Goes Again", "New Age", and a 36 minute version of "Sister Ray"!
