Yo Mama (Germany), 1996. Used ... $9.99
One of the better releases of abstract vibes from a few years ago, repackaged for the Japanese market, which is about the only way we can get it these days! Some of the tracks have a bit of a junglist feel, but others have a nice spacey groove that's in keeping with the sparer funky sound that was coming out of Europe a few years ago. Titles include "Brooklyn Sky Port", "First Man On The Moog", "Venus Beach Resort", "Shaft In Space", and "Harlem Overdrive". CD

Eric AlexanderGentle Ballads ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2004. Used ... $16.99
A long-overdue session of ballads from modern tenor giant Eric Alexander – a player we've always loved for his soaring, leaping lines on soul jazz sets – but who also has just the right tone to carry off an album of mellow tunes and ballads! Alexander's tone reminds us a lot of the Sonny Rollins sound of the mid 60s – that perfect, yet never too-polished style that Sonny was using when re-interpreting standards in a masterful demonstration of space and economy. The tracks on this set are a well-chosen lot – and include 2 classic Mal Waldron ballads, "Left Alone" and "Soul Eyes", plus 2 takes on Earl Hagen's "Harlem Nocturne", and Alexander's own track "Gently". The group's a quartet, with Mike Le Donne on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and the session's recorded with impeccable sound, in the Venus Records mode. CD

Eric AlexanderJust One Of Those Things ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $29.99
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".

Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. Used ... $28.99
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

David HazeltineWaltz For Debby ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1998. Used ... $18.99
A tribute to Bill Evans, and a set that's got a gentler feel than usual for pianist David Hazeltine! The tracks include many famous tunes penned by Bill, and David plays them with just the right sort of colors and careful touch to live nicely up to the Evans legacy, while still also swinging things a bit harder at points too – almost as if he's willing to show that he can throw a few of his own bolder notes into the mix, while still showing everything he's learned from the master. The result is a wonderful interplay of tones, very rich in feeling – and made even better by the basswork of George Mraz and drums of Billy Drummond. Titles include "Funkallero", "Peri's Scope", "Show Type Tune", "Waltz For Debby", "Very Early", and "Bill At Peace". CD

✨✧ Steve KuhnEasy To Love (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2004. Used ... $21.99
It's easy to love the piano of Steve Kuhn – even without the album's cover image of a model exposing herself by the side of a freeway! Kuhn's keys have a lot more class than warrants the cover – and from the very first note of the set, you'll be transported away from thinking about that image, and caught in rapt attention to Steve's warm tones on the piano. The album's got a more inside, more lyrical approach than some of his other albums of the past decade or so – but that's the charm of Kuhn on the Venus label – as they've really managed to capture the softer, sensitive side of Steve's talents. Bass is by David Finck and drums are by Billy Drummond – on titles that include "Morning Dew", "Emily", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Super Jet", "Two For The Road", and "Be My Love". CD

Venus (Japan), 2006. Used ... $14.99
A tribute to Wynton Kelly, played by pianist Dan Nimmer – who does a pretty good job of getting at all the sides of Kelly's talents in the set! The group features John Webber on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums – the last of whom was a contemporary of Wynton's, and would obviously have the last word on whether Nimmer's hands are in the right place. But from the sound of the set, we're guessing he'd agree that things came off pretty darn well – on tracks that include "Quick Jump", "On A Clear Day", "No Blues", "Brimsha Man", "On The Trail", "Kelly Blue", "Eleanor", "Close Your Eyes", and "Temperance".

Freddie ReddStraight Ahead ... CD
Interplay/Venus (Japan), 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A soulful 70s outing from pianist Freddie Redd – one of his few albums as a leader from the decade, and a tight trio outing recorded for the tiny Interplay label! Freddie's touch on the keys here still has some of the modern flourishes of his earlier work for Blue Note – but he's also got a more rounded sound overall, and a more relaxed approach to the piano that makes for a nice change, and which really suits the manner of his trio partners Henry Franklin on bass and Carl Burnett on drums. Titles include a number of great Redd originals – "Play Piano Play", "Waltzing In", "On Time", and "Braziliana" – plus versions of "I'll Keep Loving You" and "Round Midnight". CD

✨✧ Eric AlexanderSunday In New York ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure brilliance from tenor giant Eric Alexander – one of the few modern players we'd put on a par with our favorites from older years! Alexander's got a depth of tone and sense of poise that's simply wonderful on the set – one that's never staid, but which continues to grow beautifully over the years – using the tenor sax in a sense of freely creative expression at a level that matches that of Hank Mobley, Tubby Hayes, or Sonny Rollins back in the 60s. The group on this set features John Hicks on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and Hicks' piano is especially nice, and opens up Alexander's sound with a sensitivity that matches his best recordings with Harold Mabern. Titles include "Sunday In New York", "Watch What Happens", "Avotcja", "Alone Together", "Dearly Beloved", and "My Girl Is Just Enough Woman For Me". CD

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

Nereide/Intervallo (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A beautiful little record, and one that's got way more heart and soul to offer than you might expect from the rather understated packaging – which hides an album that's full of sparkling 70s keyboard magic! The music here is by a mix of Italian soundtrack and jazz talents – the latter of whom bring some sounds that are especially groovy, served up on both acoustic piano and lots of sweet electric keyboards! The great Marco Di Marco contributes four numbers – including two takes on "Long Drink", "Prima Giochi", and the tune "Ivana" – a nice bossa nova track. Other titles include "Aria Aperta" by Franco Tonani, "Venus" and "Bassa Marea" by Alessandro Alessancroni, "Pescatori" by Kema, and "Protozoi" by Amedeo Tommasi. LP, Vinyl record album

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

Universal (UK), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $27.99 34.99
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.

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

MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
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".

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.

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.

Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the same territory as Jorge Ben at the end of the 60s, with wickedly riffing guitar and some nicely heavy drums. The lineup is an all-star one – Dom Salvador on piano, Ze Roberto on organ, and trombone from Ed Maciel – and the arrangements are handled by Erlon Chaves, with the same funky approach as his own great music! There's loads of great originals on the record – including "Essa Moca Ta Diferente", "Sarro", "Repouso", and "Bebete Vao Bora" – plus versions of cuts like "Venus", "Evil Ways", and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", all done as groovy instrumentals.

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

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetUnder The Jasmin Tree/Space (plus bonus track) ... CD
Apple, 1968/1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of nice Modern Jazz Quartet efforts for Apple on one CD! Under The Jasmin Tree is one of their more interest albums of the 60s. The production's pretty straight, but the group's playing in a cool open-ended style that still has elements of their earlier work, but which really makes things a lot more interesting than some of the Atlantic recordings. Milt Jackson's vibes have a bit more of a bell-like quality on some parts, and the rhythm team of Percy Heath and Connie Kay kick it with a soul jazz vibe on a few numbers – a nice change from the sleepier rhythms of earlier albums. Titles include "The Blue Necklace", "Exposure", "Jasmine Tree", and "Three Little Feelings". Space is beautifully spacey workt – a record that more than earns its enigmatic title! The session's an odd one – but that 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". This Apple Records remastered edition also has the bonus previously unerleased version of "Yesterday". 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

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".

✨✧ Gimmer NicholsonChristopher Idyll (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ John Phillips, Stomu Yamashta, & OthersMan Who Fell To Earth – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Universal (UK), 1976. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Joe ThomasFeelin's From Within ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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
(White label promo. Cover has a DJ sticker.)

✨✧ Mayo ThompsonCorky's Debt To His Father (plus bonus 7" single) ... LP
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
(Includes a bonus 7-inch single with "Woof" and "Sergei McUgly".)

✨✧ VenturesBeach Party (with bonus tracks) ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
