Eric AlexanderJust One Of Those Things (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $49.99
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", "Just One Of Those Things", and "Wish One".

Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. Used ... $19.99
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 ... $11.99
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

✨✧ Dezron DouglasSoul Jazz ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $29.99
Bassist Dezron Douglas is always a name we look for on a record – and although this set is one of the few he's ever given us as a leader, his playing and approach never let us down! For the set, Douglas revisits a number of older soul tracks, but in a way that's completely instrumental – much more complicated than the 60s soul jazz modes you might expect from title, with a wonderfully changing sense of rhythm and flow that's abetted by work from Donald Brown on piano and Willie Jones III on drums – both working at a level that matches their own great records as leaders. Saxophonist Jimmy Greene blows both tenor and soprano sax on the album – adding an important voice over the top – and titles include "Hey There Lonely Girl", "I Want You", "Tears Of A Clown", "Cupid", "Ooh Baby Baby", "Having A Party", and "So Amazing".

Eddie HarrisFreedom Jazz Dance ... LP
Venus (Japan), 1994. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Late work from Eddie Harris – but a great session too, and one that cooks with raw soulful energy that shows he was still at the top of his game! The date's a quartet session, with that spare, back-to-basics approach Eddie was using in the years after his bigger 70s fame – a great reminder of the tenor roots from which he sprang in the Chicago scene, where he could still make some compellingly complicated moments, even without any electricity or tricks. Other players include Jacky Terrasson on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – and titles include "Little Sunflower", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "For All We Know", "Georgia On My Mind", and "Lisa Marie" LP, Vinyl record album

David Hazeltine's one of those players we grow to love more and more as the year goes by – and his warm, deep-toned piano lines never fail to captivate us! This album's a beautiful-sounding session done for the Japanese Venus label – a place where Hazeltine's cut some of his best music – and the rhythm section features George Mraz on bass and Billy Drummond on drums, both players who really seem to fit David's groove nicely. Titles include "For Bill", "Autumn Leaves", "Beautiful Love", "Sweet & Lovely", and "Tenderly". CD

Dan NimmerKelly Blue (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2006. Used ... $9.99
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".

One For All (Eric Alexander, Jim Rotondi, et al)End Of A Love Affair ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2001. Used ... $14.99
There's no end to our love affair with this great group – one of the most rock-solid lineups of the past decade or so, thanks to tight work from some players who clearly love working with each other! The mighty Eric Alexander is in the frontline on tenor sax – as are Jim Rotondi on trumpet and Steve Davis on trombone – and the rhythm section's equally cooking with David Hazeltine on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and the mighty Joe Farnsworth on drums! The set's got the kind of groove you might think was only cut back in the day – a soulful take on hardbop that's right up there at a Blue Note level of precision and expression. Titles include "Shinjuku Waltz", "How Are You", "Corcovado", "Stolen Moments", and "The Eyes Have It". CD

One For All (Eric Alexander, Jim Rotondi, et al)No Problem ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2003. Used ... $18.99
No problem at all, given that this combo's one of the cookingest contemporary lineups we can think of! All players here are great – hence the title of the group – and the mighty Eric Alexander's always a treat on tenor, blowing beautifully alongside Jim Rotondi on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, David Hazeltine on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums! The three-horn frontline does some really great things at times – but the setting also leaves plenty of space for very personal solo expression too – and Hazeltine's a surprising groover who really seems to spur everyone on with his rhythms. The set begins with the very aptly titled "Our Father Who Art Blakely" – then moves onto cuts that include "No Problem", "Whisper Not", "One For All", "Time Off", "Ugetsu", and "Moanin". CD

There's a bit of reverie here, but it's usually the swinging kind instead of the sleepy variety – thanks to a well-formed groove from Richie Beirach on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Billy Hart on drums! The tunes certainly include a few ballads, but Richie usually takes them with a freely fresh sound that gets past any obvious standard-heavy cliches – inspired, no doubt, by the inventive changes of Mraz and Hart, who seem to spur him on strongly, especially on the more upbeat tracks. Titles include "Manhattan Reverie", "Transition", "Veils", "Etude", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Footprints". CD

David Hazeltine plays the compositions of Bud Powell – in a set that's got a lot more punch than you might expect from both the nude model on the cover, or the Cleopatra in the title! There's a rollicking groove here that definitely draws from Bud's bop roots – but Hazeltine also hangs things up with a bit more lyricism too – blocking these warm chords beautifully over rhythms from George Mraz on bass and Billy Drummond on drums. Titles include "Tempus Fugit", "Glass Enclosure", "Wail", "Danceland", "Strictly Confidential", "I'll Keep Loving You", and "Dance Of Infidels". CD

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

✨✧ Harold MabernDon't Know Why ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2003. Used ... Temporarily 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

Harold Mabern's always found plenty of support for his talents from the Japanese scene – and this great date recorded for Venus Records is no exception to that tradition! The record's got a soulful swing from the very first note – a groove that comes clearly from the rhythms of George Mraz on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums, both players who move Mabern away from some of his more lyrical trio modes – almost echoing an older soul jazz vibe at points. Titles include a great remake of Steely Dan's "Do It Again" – plus "The Chess Players", "Only One", "You Say You Care", "Why Did I Choose You", and "Kelly Colors". CD

✨✧ One For All (Eric Alexander, Jim Rotondi, et al)What's Going On? ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rock-solid work from One For All – easily one of the greatest straight jazz combos going, thanks to some tremendous tenor work from Eric Alexander, sweet piano work from David Hazeltine, and snapping rhythms from drummer Joe Farnsworth! Other group members are great too – and the sextet features Jim Rotondi on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, and John Webber on bass – all working here at the height of their powers, and also coming across with a bit more sharpness and soul than even other recent sessions on the Japanese Venus label. Arrangements are by all members of the group – and the tunes are long, and roll out beautifully with a solidly soulful feel – no surprise, given that most of them are covers of classic soul tunes from the 70s. Tracks include a great remake of "Golden Lady", plus "What's Going On", "How Sweet It Is", "Let's Stay Together", "Reasons", "For The Love Of You", and "Betcha By Golly Wow". CD

Incredible early theremin recordings! The record features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic work on the "electro theremin" by Paul Tanner. The "electro theremin" was Tanner's own creation, and it works on a cool sliding principle that creates a lot of weird spacey dipping, turning, and soaring effects. The album's packaged in a lovingly heavy cover, with a nude "heavenly body" floating in space amidst a sea of bright colors! Titles include "Misty Moon Blues", "Out Of This World", "Holiday On Saturn", "20th Century Venus", and "Up To Jupiter". A great reissue, and one we never ever see in the original! CD

Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $29.99
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.

Roy HaynesQuiet Fire – Thank You Thank You/Vistalite ... CD
Galaxy, 1977/1978. Used ... $10.99
2 late 70s sessions from drummer Roy Haynes – back to back on one CD! Roy's drum work was always impeccable – even on a sleeper session like Thank You Thank You, recorded for Fantasy's Galaxy subsidiary in 1977. The record is surprisingly straight for the label – and features some nice vibes from Bobby Hutcherson, plus good piano from George Cables and Stanley Cowell – coming together with Haynes loose drum work in a very soulful set. Titles include "Bullfight", "Quiet Fire", "Sweet Song", and "Processional", which is a spare percussion/drum duet. Vistalite is a bit different – a late 70s fusion session that cooks nicely with sidemen like Stanley Cowell, Cecil McBee, Kenneth Jackson and Joe Henderson. The groove is smooth 70s electric jazz, with just enough funky edge to make you nod your head, and crisp playing that doesn't let you forget where most of these guys are coming from. "Wonderin" was lifted by Q Tip, and "Water Children" has a great open, spacious feel – kind of post-CTI. Also includes the title track, "Invitation" and "Venus Eyes". CD

The sound ranges from No ID soul grit to Timbaland star trips – with more beats by Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, The Inkredibles and The Neptunes. Titles include "What We Talking About" by Jay Z & Luke Steele, "Thank You", the mega buzzed "DOA (Death Of Auto-Tune)", "Run This Town" feat Rihanna & Kanye West, "Empire State Of Mind" with Alicia Keys, "Real As It Gets" with Young Jeezy, "Venus Vs Mars", "Hate" feat Kanye West, "So Ambitious" feat Pharrell, "Young Forever" feat Mr Hudson and more.

Peer/Votary (Australia), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

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.

Music On Vinyl, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
One of the coolest groups to ever come from the Dutch scene of the 60s – a group who were raised on the same heady mix of soul and blues as the UK beat groups of their generation – but one who were also willing to open up into some trippier touches too! Case in point is the very cool use of sitar or organ a few tracks here – never in a way that's overdone, but which brings in a sweet Eastern flair next to some of the grittier guitars – which themselves are also pretty darn great, thanks to the group's chunky rocking groove! Lyrics are all in English, and you've no doubt heard their classic "Venus" – served up here alongside other great cuts that include "Boll Weevil", "Acka Raga", "Love Machine", "California Here I Come", "Poor Boy", and "Love Buzz". Bonus tracks include "Hot Sand", "Harley Davidson", "Wild Wind", and "Fireball Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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.

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.

Tracks include "Venus", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", and "Everybody's Talkin'". Nice version of "Nights In White Satin", too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Australian pressing. Cover has an unglued bottom seam and gloss wrinkles.)

✨✧ Alan HawkshawGirl In A Sportscar ... CD
Coalition/Warner (Germany), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible compilation of tracks from one of the more overlooked of the funky British easy bandleaders from the early 70's. Hawkshaw was represented on the Sound Gallery compilation, and he's best known to the world as the organ player on The Mohawks "Champ" – but this set shows the huge scope of his playing, and features a batch of tracks as stunning as any you'd hear from any of his contemporaries, like Roy Budd or John Schroeder. 29 cuts in all, with classics like "Girl In A Sportscar", "Scooter Girl", "Playmate", "Dave Allen At Large", "Sky Train", and "Destination Venus". Great great stuff, and a must have if you're a fan of the Sound Gallery or Sound Spectrum comps. Loads of cool electronics, spacey keyboards, and a quintessential Brit easy sound! CD

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... LP
Verve, 1967. Used ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: Vinyl plays with a locking skip in a few points during the first 3 tracks. Side 2 is VG. Blue label mono pressing in the airbrushed cover with intact banana. Cover has light wear, but in nice shape.)

✨✧ Mark WynterGo Away Little Girl – Mark Wynter Pye Anthology ... CD
Sanctuary (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The near-complete Pye Records recordings of Mark Wynter – a 60s Brit pop singer with a style and a sound that shares plenty with the American Brill Building scene! Wynter's got a style that easily ranges between croonier numbers and tunes that have more of a pop-based punch – the latter of which remind us a bit of Brian Hyland's 60s work, but with more of a masculine BJ Thomas sort of feel. The 2CD set features a total of 56 tracks in all – all recorded between 1962 and 1974 for Pye, and including 20 singles, 2 albums, and 2 EP's worth of material. Titles include "Venus In Blue Jeans", "Aladdin's Lamp", "Shy Girl", "Vote For Me", "Go Away Little Girl", "And I Love Her", "I'm Coming Back To You", "She's A Woman" Now", "Love is A Sweet Thing", "Cinnamon Sinner", "Love Hurts", "It's Love You Want", "Pencil & Paper", "One Girl", and "You Made Me What I Am".

✨✧ BrokebackIllinois River Valley Blues ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the warmest, best instrumental music yet from Doug McCombs's Brokeback – maybe a bit less abstract than most earlier Brokeback efforts – but just as alluring, even while working with more a immediately engaging sound. McCombs is on guitars here with multi-instrumentalist James Elkington, Pete Croke on bass and Arief Sless-Kitain on drums & percussion, and occasional atmospheric vocals by Amalea Tshild. Illinois River Valley Blues manages to bring in more identifiable jazz, rock and soundtrack-y influences, while still wholly distinctive – and the way McCombs is inspired by lesser traveled points on the map of his (and our own) home state has always been a fascinating aspect of his work in Brokeback – never more so than on this one. Includes "Ride Ahead And Light The Way For Me", "Cairo Levee", "The Canyons Of Illinois", "Andalusia, IL"., "Spanish Venus", "Ursula", "The Stroller's Memorial", "Night Falls On Chillicothe" and more.
