✨✧ Eddie HigginsIf Dreams Come True Vol 1 ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2004. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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

Claude WilliamsonSong For My Father (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1993. Used Gatefold ... $18.99
Lovely work from pianist Claude Williamson – a player we like so much more in his later years than we did when he first started out in the 50s! Williamson's really got a depth to his keyboard work here – a way of playing a wide range of sounds and colors, yet without ever showing off too much – kind of a simple, unassuming lyricism that's as moving as it is understated – set up with some gentle rhythm accompaniment from Andy Simpkins on bass and Albert Tootie Heath on drums. Titles include "Feelin Fine", "Easy Living", "Alone Together", "Work Song", and "Song For My Father". CD

✨✧ Marion BrownOffering ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully mellow work from the great Marion Brown – playing here in a laidback quintet setting that brings out some of his most soulful tones. The group includes piano, guitar, bass, and drums – but the main focus is on the alto of Brown, which has a warm world-weary tone that's very different than that of his earlier avant work – but really wonderful overall! Other players include Tom McClung on piano, Jay Messer on guitar, Mike Marcus on bass, and Chris Dailey on drums – and titles include "After The Rain", "Ode To Coltrane", "Sky Entrance", "Terra", and "Berkshire Blues".

✨✧ Barney WilenNew York Romance ... CD
Venus/Sunnyside (France), 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful blowing from the great Barney Wilen – an album that's as relaxed as you might guess from the image on the cover, but which has a rock-solid sound all the way through! At this point in his career, Barney's definitely back on top of his game – playing both tenor and soprano sax with a style that's relatively inside, but which always has a bit of an edge in the tone – echoing his years in music, both good and bad, and coming across with a depth that's undeniable. One of the real strengths of the record is also the rhythm section – Kenny Barron on piano, Ira Coleman on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums – all of whom swing things strongly on the upbeat tracks, and provide Barney with some wonderfully sensitive accompaniment on the ballads. Titles include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Mack The Knife", "No Problem", "Blues Walk", "I Will Say Goodbye", and "Don't Fence Me In". CD

✨✧ Paul BleyModern Chant ... CD
Music Masters/Venus, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
An album that's maybe not as modern as some of Paul Bley's other records – but one that's still got a compelling quality throughout! The session supposedly takes inspiration from Gregorian chants (somewhat big on the recording scene at the time of the 1994 date) – but the music is all jazz all the way, a unique combination of Bley's marvelous tones on the piano, the electric cello of David Eyges, and the drums of Bruce Ditmas. Eyges mostly plays his instrument like a jazz bass – and an acoustic one at that – and there's a lot more swing here than you might expect, but still all the right touches of tone to remind us that Bley's on piano. Titles include "The New You", "Funhouse", "Please Don't", "Wisecracks", "Russell", "Digitant", and "Decompose". CD

✨✧ Nicole Henry with Eddie Higgins TrioTeach Me Tonight ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
An even deeper jazz set than Nicole Henry's first album – recorded with the Eddie Higgins Trio, and done in a style that's traditional, yet extremely soulful! There's a sound here that reminds us a lot of Carmen Lundy – as Nicole's singing jazz, but doing so in a mode that's never draped with any of the torchy cliches of other singers – and which is as informed by a history of soul music as it is more standard influences from jazz. The recording quality is great – thanks to the top-shelf Venus Records standards – and titles include "Summer Wind", "Angel Eyes", "Young At Heart", "Teach Me Tonight", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Cry Me A River", and "Blame It On My Youth".

AirTalkie Walkie (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Atmospheric electronic pop from Air – one that really steps up the spacier avant pop touches, after some of more ethereal, almost symphonic touches on both their proper albums and soundtrack work in the preceding few years. Lots of trippy electronic touches on this one, but still with the delicate vocals and layered bits of guitar and other strings, for a nice blend of sounds. Solid work from the always adventurous duo. Includes "Venus", "Cherry Blossom Girl", "Run", "Universal Traveler", "Mike Mills", "Surfing On A Rocker", "Another Day", "Alpha Beta Gaga", "Biological" and "Alone In Kyoto". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1980. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An amazing record – one that we love to death over the years – and which never lets us down! There's a darkness here that goes way past any simple cliches you may have associated with the band – a haunting feel that transcends most of what they were ever capable of in later years. Includes "Party Out Of Bounds", "Dirty Back Road", "Runnin Around", "Give Me Back My Man", "Private Idaho", "Devil In My Car", "Quiche Lorraine", "Strobe Light" and "53 Miles West Of Venus".

✨✧ Azar LawrenceSeeker ... CD
Sunnyside, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 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".

✨✧ Rob Mazurek Pulsar QuartetStellar Pulsations ... CD
Delmark, 2012. Used ... $6.99
One of the most striking records so far from the mighty Rob Mazurek – a set that makes us more than glad we've been following his musical journey for the past two decades! The set's got a nicely compressed feel – one that takes some of the looser energy that's been bubbling up in recent Mazurek records, and delivers it in a tight quartet format – with Rob's sparkling cornet in the lead, amidst great piano from Angelica Sanchez, bass from Matt Lux, and drums from John Herndon! Given the wide resumes of all players, there's a really shifting sense of sound here – one that's bold one minute, introspective the next – and never falls into too-familiar jazz phrasing modes. Yet Mazurek's also really matured as a player, too – working here with a sensitivity we never would have expected years ago – captured with great clarity in the recording. Titles include "Magic Saturn", "Spiritual Mars", "Twister Uranus", "Spanish Venus", "Folk Song Neptune", and "Spiral Mercury". CD

Nicole Mitchell & Joelle LeandreSisters Where ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2014. New Copy ... $15.99
A beautiful combination of flute and bass – the former from Nicole Mitchell, the latter from Joelle Leandre – both players who really open up in the space of a spare record like this! Leandre's got a very lyrical, spiritual tone to her instrument – but also lots of sharp edges too – and she really brings out some fresh sounds from Mitchell, who continues to be one of the most expressive, inspirational musicians in the current generation of jazz! The titles of the tunes have a very heavenly feel, which suits the music well – and tracks include "Sisters On Venus", "Sisters On Mars", "Sisters On Saturn", and "Back On Earth". CD

✨✧ Gerry MulliganGerry Mulligan Songbook (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1957. Used ... $7.99
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

Gil MelleNew Faces – New Sounds (10 inch LP) (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... On August 28, 2015
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

Popul VuhNosferatu (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Egg/Wah Wah (Spain), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... About September 1, 2015
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Henry FranklinSkipper At Home ... LP
Black Jazz, 1974. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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

Joe ThomasFeelin's From Within ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ DeodatoDeodato 2 ... CD
CTI, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – a sublime electric piano groove that's quite different than anything Deodato recorded before – and possibly never realized this perfectly again after his CTI years. Other players include Stanley Clarke on bass, Billy Cobham on drums, and Hubert Laws on flute – and titles include the massive Latin funk track "Super Strut", plus the tunes "Pavane For A Dead Princess", "Skyscrapers", and a great version of "Nights In White Satin". Plus, this CD reissue features 3 bonus tracks – "Venus", "Do It Again", and "Latin Flute"! CD

✨✧ Spotnicks/Russ Garcia/Ron GoodwinOut Of This World (Music In Orbit/Fantastica) ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Elektra, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

The Velvet Underground live in 1993 – something we never would have expected a decade before, and a performance that's gone onto have more permanence in the group's catalog over the years! The concert's recorded in Paris, with a quartet lineup that reunites John Cale with the group – Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison, and Moe Tucker – and while there's not as many freaky longform jams as you might find in the Robert Quine tapes from the early years, there's still some surprisingly nice longer tracks that really open up some tunes – including "Heroin", "Some Kinda Love", "The Gift", "Rock & Roll", and "Hey Mr Rain". Lots more nice moments too – including "Velvet Nursery Rhyme", "Black Angels Death Song", "Femme Fatale", "Beginning To See The Light", "Afterhours", and "Venus In Furs". LP, Vinyl record album

NRBQNRBQ Interstellar (10 inch LP) ... LP
Sundazed, 1970. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
A really unique record from the New Rhythm & Blues Quartet – an early live set that has the group playing the music of Sun Ra – in a really offbeat hybrid with their own individual style! The lineup is expanded a bit here – with additional trombone and tenor – and the spirit of Ra is definitely alive and well in the music, as are some of the warmer tones of the group's own roots – which blend with the compositions to make some really wonderful moments! We're stunned at how much we like the record – almost a slightly more human take on the sound of the Arkestra – and titles include "Rocket #9", "Venusian Sunset", "Next Stop Mars", and "Approach The Planet". LP, Vinyl record album
