Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, & William ParkerBlue Winter ... CD CD format
Eremite, 2005. Used 2CD ... $14.99
A beautiful tribute to the strengths of these players working together in a trio – the sense of respect and patience they each have for each other – letting the sound come at just the right moment in just the right way, as things build together in this amazing way – then leap forth with a power that's even more incredible when all three musicians fall into step! Anderson's tenor gets lots of rich open space to roam around – with these deep tones that strongly echo a Coltrane legacy, almost more soulfully than other albums of this vintage – and Parker's bass is wonderful, as always, in a setting like this – and Drake's drums are a masterpiece of understatement. The set features four long improvisations – recorded live in a very warm space. CD

New FlashbackIssue 6 – Winter 2014 ... Magazine Magazine
Flashback (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $20.99
Flashback blows us away once again – with a super-deep level of presentation that almost makes the whole magazine more like a book than anything else! This issue is well over 200 pages, filled with color images, and hardly any ads at all – which leaves lots of space for long features on Sam Gopal, Aardvark, and The David – plus deep interviews with Bill Fay, Jimmy Page, Margo Guryan, and James Williamson of The Stooges! There's also a big feature on world classics that would appeal to any fan of psych – including albums by Blo, Traffic Sound, Witch, Ananda Shankar, and others – as well as a big feature on the Teen Set magazine of the 60s, a reprinting of the Spinal Tap press kit, and lots and lots of record reviews!

New David FriedmanWinter Love, April Joy ... CD CD format
East West (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic record from vibist David Friedman – spare, hip, modern, and very moody! Friedman's playing vibes and marimba alongside David Samuels, who plays the same – and this twin-vibes approach sounds fantastic – especially as the record has no drums, just additional bass, plus flute by Hubert Laws – a very loose, open style that comes across with a completely unique sound! The approach is super-dope for any fan of laidback 70s vibes – and the tracks are never too free or way out, just gliding with this airy quality that's really wonderful – one of the best demonstrations of Friedman's great talents on record. Titles include "Truce", "Nyack", "Brite Piece", "Island", and "Saraband". CD

Grand TourOn Such A Winter's Day ... LP LP format
Butterfly, Mid 70s. Sealed ... $2.99
An overlooked gem from the late 70s disco years – a unique side project of the Canadian team who gave the world the THP Orchestra, but one that's done with a bit more Euro style overall! The grooves are full and sweeping right from the start – not as cold as the sounds coming from some of the German studios, but with a similar use of vocals tied up inside the strings – a quality that has the singer equally placed with the instrumentation in the mix, and not as much as a standout soloist. These strings are arranged to perfection by the legendary Jimmie Haskell – who really changes up his mode here, and works great with the groove. The set's got a killer clubby remake of "California Dreamin" – done with female lead vocals and a disco pace that's somehow more chilling than the original. Other titles include "Still I'm Sad", "The Grand Tour", "Flight To Versailles", and the great jazzy groover "Late November". LP, Vinyl record album

Ugly ThingsIssue 36 – Fall/Winter 2013 ... Magazine Magazine
Ugly Things, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 9.95
The legendary producer Andrew Loog Oldham graces the cover spot of this issue of Ugly Things – and is followed up by a great feature inside! But even more interesting is the tale of Craig Smith – easy ly one of the most insane journeys in music we've ever read! The story is exactly what makes Ugly Things so great – and it's followed here in a very heavy issue with articles on The Dream, The Haunted, Manzanita Jungle, and Billy & The Conquerors – plus a great San Francisco Beat column, and lots of news on reissues too. 184 pages, with lots of great photos – and more of a book than a magazine!

Johnny WinterGangster Of Love – The Early Years ... CD CD format
Airline, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 18.99
The earliest work of Johnny Winter – and music that's a real revelation if you only know his later hits! Winter is best known as a blues rocker of big fame at Columbia Records, but he worked hard in the southern underground for years before hitting the big time – in a raw mix of blues, soul, and R&B that has all the best rough touches of the swamp scene down in Louisiana! Much of Winter's work from that time was scattered on small indie singles, but almost all of it was sneakily culled together over the years by Huey P Meux – whose less-than-forthright efforts may well be the reason all this music is presented together hear. The 36 track set is a stunner throughout – gritty and powerful, and more soul than rock – on titles that include "Voodoo Twist", "Five After Four AM", "Stay By My Side", "Ice Cube", "Geisha Rock", "Out Of Sight", "Bad News", "Hello My Lover", "Tramp", "Parchman Farm", "Leave My Woman Alone", "Crazy Baby", "Eternally", and "Reeling & Rocking".

New Ralph BurnsFree Forms/Winter Sequences ... CD CD format
Verve/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1946/1951/1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 very rare slices of work by arranger Ralph Burns – both of them unique! First up on the set is Free Forms, a modern jazz-meets-strings session that follows from Burns' exploratory "Introspection" title for the Jazz Scene collection (included here as a bonus track.) Ralph pens some inventive charts that utilize a 15 piece chamber orchestra as backdrops for his own bold lines on piano, as well as some key solo bits from Lee Konitz on half the tracks. Titles include "Places Please", "Cameo", "Lileth", "Spring Is", and "Someday Somewhere". The modern feel of that set is balanced by the more whimsical Winter Sequence – a 1954 record written by Leonard Feather, with 8 tracks named after each of Santa's reindeer (save for Rudolph.) The format's a lot less Christmasy than you'd expect – but there is a nice sort of Holiday bounce to the whole thing – a joyful and playful feel that's a nice contrast from some of Burns' more modern work. Players include Joe Wilder, Kai Winding, Herbie Mann, and Billy Bauer – and titles include "Donner", "Cupid", "Comet", "Vixen", and "Blitzen". CD

New Dennis DragonWinter Equinox ... LP LP format
Festival, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of a few pretty great ski movie soundtracks done by composer Dennis Dragon in the 70s – penned for a small genre of films that were sort of a takeoff on the surf films of the 60s! Some of these films have a real 70s daredevil sort of feel – exploitation trashy in all the right places – and the best numbers on this set are like Dragon's other work of the period, kind of a mix of disco scoring and cop show themes, in a mode that must have gone down well with the glitzy crowd in Aspen and Vail. Oddly, though, many other numbers have a rootsy, almost countrified feel – with rednecky guitar or violin set in larger arrangements. There's still a few nice slick funk soundtrack tunes to make this one worth seeking out though – and titles include "Powder Buff", "Powder Burn", "Snow Dance", and "Snow Nose". (Cocaine references anyone?) LP, Vinyl record album

Roller Soul, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet contemporary group who really live up to the "roller" in their name – as "Love Programme" has just the right sort of rhythm for a classic roller skating groove! The beats are at midtempo, and peppered with sweet keyboard lines and a muted vocoder lyric – all very hip, without any sort of easy retro gimmicks! "Warm Winter Sun" is mighty nice too – with a Zappp-esque bassline that sets the groove right away – and lots more of those totally great keyboards! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Gil Scott-HeronWinter In America ... LP LP format
Strata East, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful jazzy classic, and perhaps Gil Scott-Heron's most perfectly realized album ever! The record has a completely sophisticated jazzy approach – one that's miles ahead from even Gil's previous work on Flying Dutchman, and which shows him to be one of the most distinctive and emotive vocalists in soul and jazz over the past 25 years. The album contains the monster dancefloor track "The Bottle", which went on to be a huge hit in many versions – but it's also got loads of gentle, fragile songs (the kind of work by Gil that we like the best, and which show him as a deeply emotional and complicated artist, with a richness that still yearns to be tapped fully. Classics include "Peace Go With You Brother" and the original version of "Your Daddy Loves You". LP, Vinyl record album

New Paul WinterJazz Meets The Bossa Nova ... LP LP format
Columbia, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paul Winter's classic sextet is recorded here in both Rio and New York – one of three different sessions that Winter cut for Columbia in the 60s – all records that explore his own love of the bossa at a time when it was coincidentally very good business to be doing so! Tracks are light and groovy, with some slightly modern touches – and although the vibe is definitely a Brazilian one, the sound actually seems to benefit most from the slightly modern styles of the Winter group – used here to bring a bit more of an edge into some of the numbers! Titles include "Con Alma", "Little Boat", "Only You & I", "Adeus, Passaro Preto", and "Foolish One". LP, Vinyl record album

A Certain RatioTo Each (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP LP format
Factory/Drastic Plastic, 1981. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
The first full album recorded by A Certain Ratio – and a mad mix of styles that's immediately compelling! The group are a key link here in so many traditions – British punk, 70s funk, dub, and late prog – all coming together under the godlike production talents of Martin Hannett to make the album one of the gleaming jewels in the crown of the young Factory Records label. There's never been a record of such scattered, skittish darkness – and even though short songs like "The Fox", "Forced Laugh", "Felch", "My Spirit", and "Loss" are arresting, the whole thing's magnificently capped off by the extended percussion jam "Winter Hill" – a tune that sounds like a batucada group trying to drum their way across a post-apocalyptic landscape!

New Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... CD CD format
Capitol (Japan), 1964. Used ... $13.99
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, percussion, and even a bit of whistling on a few tracks! The vibe's very much in the best Verve/Impulse takes on the bossa – done with a clear California influence, which keeps things cool and breezy – and which also pushes Almeida past his sometimes-staid style on guitar. Two cuts also feature some great vocals by Irene Kral – and titles include "Twilight In Rio", "Old Guitaron", "Sarah's Samba", "Izabella", "Winter Moon", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Choro For People In Love".

Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy backings. Highlights include "No Sooner Said Than Done", which has some very weird processing on the guitar; "Full Compass", which has some nice hard drums; and "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams", a mellow moody track.

New Ran Blake feat Houston PersonSuffield Gothic ... CD CD format
Soul Note (Italy), 1984. Used ... $8.99
An unlikely pairing, but a great one too – quite an unusual chapter in the career of pianist Ran Blake – but in a way, a great set to unlock the soulful undercurrents that have always been in his music! About half the tracks feature the tenor of Houston Person joining in – working these amazing sounds in duets with Ran, and creating this depth of feeling that grabs us right from the start! Given that Person rarely did dates like this too – the set's unusual for him, too – and even when Houston's not on board, Blake's solo lines still have a feeling that's full of soul. Despite the crowd of people on the cover, the album's just a duo/solo outing – and titles include "Indian Winter", "Curtis", "Vanguard", "Old Man River", "Midnight Local To Tate County", "There's Been A Change In My Life", and "Tribute To Mahalia".

June ChristyBallad Collection ... CD CD format
Capitol, 1950s. Used ... $6.99
Great stuff from one of our favorite singers of all time! June has a way with a ballad that still leaves us breathless – turning simple somber songs into dark tapestries of despair and loss, infused with a boozy maturity that makes the lyrics resonate with a sense of pain that's always missing from other versions of the tracks (if there are other versions of the tracks – as some of June's are so good that nobody ever dared touch the songs again!) This CD brings together 16 cuts that perfectly illustrate June's incredible talents, including a number from her classic Something Cool album, issued here in the stereo recordings, which are completely different from the mono ones, which were recorded at a different session years earlier. Titles include "Interlude", "Winter's Got Spring Up Its Sleeve", "The Wind", "The Night We Called It A Day", "Night People", "Nobody's Heart", "Don't Explain", and "Cry Like The Wind". CD

Coral (Japan), 1956. Used ... $26.99
A rare and unusual chapter in the career of Al Cohn – and an incredible set cut in the mid 50s with Bob Brookmeyer on trombone! The style's a bit like that used by Al and Zoot Sims together – tightly arranged shorter tracks, with a focus on well-crafted horn work, but enough space to allow each of the leaders break out and express their personality on the record. The rest of the group features Mose Allison on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the arrangements are all pretty darn fresh, handled by Al and Bob themselves. Titles include "So Far So Good", "Winter", "Back To Back", "Shine", "Good Spirits", and "Lazy Man Stomp". CD

In a world of soundalike groups in the 60s, The Eighth Day really stand out – working in a batch of all-original material here, one that uses folk, Sunshine, and harmony styles in the presentation – but somehow manages to focus the best elements of all modes together into a really sparkling little sound! Most numbers have a catchy sing-songy quality that should have made them bigger hits – yet there's also an under-discovered quality here that's probably one the things that makes the record so great! Titles include "Hey Boy", "Raining Sunshine", "Long Winter Nights", "Bandit Of Brazil", "Building With A Steeple", "Brandy", and "It Takes The Rain". CD

Francoise HardyMidnight Blues – Paris/London 1968 to 1972 ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Rare English language recordings from the sublime Francoise Hardy – music that's every bit as wonderful as her famous French recordings – and even more compelling to our Anglo-styled ears! The vocals are wonderful – sung with this sense of darkness that's almost got an echo of Nico at points, given the accent – set to backings that balance this darkness with a bit more light, but never in ways that are overly poppy – and which definitely continue that more sophisticated style that Hardy always brought to her music! There's less "yeh yeh" to the tracks than a few years before – and Francoise is definitely digging deeper music at this point in her career – sometimes with a breathy brilliance that's a bit like Jane Birkin too. Titles include "Bown Bown Bown", "Till The Morning Comes", "Loving You", "In The Sky", "Midnight Blues", "Magic Horse", "Song Of Winter", "Strange Shadows", "Ocean", "The Garden Of Jane Delawney", "Sometimes", "Let My Name Be Sorrow", "Times Passing By", "I Just Want To Be Alone", and "Suzanne".

Eddie HarrisElectrifying Eddie Harris/Plug Me In ... CD CD format
Atlantic/Rhino, 1968. Used ... $6.99
It's the late 60s, and Eddie's creating his famous electrified Varitone sound – unique among other soul jazz players in that it actually added a lot to Eddie's work, instead of detracted from it (as with some other boppers who briefly picked up the instrument.) The Varitone's cool flat tone works extremely well with the original tracks on Electrifying Eddie Harris – like the long version of "Listen Here", the groovy "Sham Time", the Latiny "Spanish Bull", or the incredible "Theme In Search Of A Movie", written by the great Chicago soul genius Charles Stepney. The album Plug Me In features Harris along with some fantastic arrangements by Stepney. Stepney's work on the album is amazing, and he contributes incredible touches like prepared piano and funky strings, both of which make the album one of the best that Harris ever did! Titles on the session include "Live Right Now", "It's Crazy", "Winter Meeting", and "Theme In Search Of A TV Commercial". CD

Iron ClawIron Claw (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Rockadrome, Early 70s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Hard riffing from Scotland's Iron Claw – a group who owe plenty to the best early work of Black Sabbath, but also take off nicely in their own direction as well! The guitar work is frenetic, the bass nice and fuzzy, and there's a sense of darkness that really comes through in the vocals too – a sinister groove that was years ahead of its time, and never got full exposure back in the 70s. This collection brings together the group's rare studio sessions – with titles that include "Clawstrophobia", "Mist Eye", "Sabotage", "Crossrocker", "Skullkrusher", "Let It Grow", "Rock Band Blues", "Lightning", "Knock Em Dead", "Devils", and "Winter".

A beautiful example of the mid-60s power of JJ Johnson – a big band session that features arrangements by JJ, Gary McFarland, and Oliver Nelson – all a very cooking mix of modernism, soul, and swing! The groups are large on all numbers, but there's plenty of room for Johnson to solo out in the lead – in a tightly-blown approach to trombone that almost comes across like a trumpet, given JJ's focus on the instrument. Other horn parts back him up lightly, but never overwhelm – and titles include "So What", "Stratusphunk", "Winter's Waif", "El Camino Real", "Stolen Moments", "Train Samba", and "Bemsha Swing".

KlanNerwy Miast ... CD CD format
GAD (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Heavy grooves from Poland's Klan – a group who worked more in the sound library scene than they did in the public eye – but who come across here with the rawness of some of the best British groups of the time! Bass is often very heavy – something that can make Klan sound funky on later records – but here, the focus is more hard rock – but at that great early level without any cliches, which creates a sinister current that holds plenty strong – even if you don't understand the language. Hammond comes in on some of the best tracks too – often with these cool trippy touches, and echoes of an older beat group vibe – and although vocals figure on most numbers, it's the band's deft instrumentation that really grabs us. Titles include "Kuzeni", "Winter", "Nerwy Miast", "Mrowisko", "Ani Ty", "Rajd Safari", and "Dwunastawka" – plus great covers of "Watermelon Man" and "Spinning Wheel". CD

Kool & The GangSpirit Of The Boogie ... LP LP format
De-Lite, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Sure, this one's got "boogie" in the title – but don't let that scare you off! The album's carved in the same hard funky style as mid 70s hits like "Hollywood Swinging" or "Jungle Boogie" (both from earlier albums) – and in fact, the "boogie" in the title seems to be a definite reference to that latter track, which is aped a bit on the album, instead of the more common 70s use of the term for disco. Whew! That's a bit of a complicated explanation – but we're just trying to tell you that this one's still plenty funky, with loads of great drums, jazzy riffing, monster basslines, and even a dose of righteous soul! Tracks include "Spirit of The Boogie", "Jungle Jazz", "Ancestral Ceremony", "Winter Sadness", and "Ride the Rhythm". One of their last great LPs, and an essential addition to their mid 70's opus! Reissued with the original gatefold cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

It's pretty driving set in moments, and quite delicate in others – voiced impressively by Korda, who's also really strong in the songwriting arena! The songs are really inspired, still carrying some of the romance and idealism of the later 60s, and his voice is quite soulful, too! It's co-produced by Vic Smith and features some stellar guests on the sessions, including AWB guitarist Alan Gorrie, plus Chris Spedding, Onnie McIntyre, Madeline Bell and Doris Troy. Includes "Between The Road", "Morning Wakes The Sun", "Dover Ferry", "Ode To The Ministry", "Into Your Station", "Pass Me Winter", "Rubble My Cauldron", "We Are Each Other", "A Passing Stranger", "Mud Mother" and more. 2 bonus tracks: "English Country Garden" and "Seagull" – pulled from rare singles!

Barbara MasonAnother Man ... CD CD format
Empire, 1983. Used ... $5.99
Sweet 80s soul from Barbara Mason – an artist who really knew how to keep her groove going by changing things up! After initial fame as a little girl singer, then a hip move into 70s funky soul, Barbara moves things up again with some great mellow soul elements – a few touches of deep soul, mixed with modern, all in a blend that's totally great – and which has her hitting a level of maturity not expected a few years before! Some of the best cuts here have these spoken bits – a legacy borrowed from Shirley Brown – heard most famously on her answer song "She's Got The Papers (But I Got The Man)" (included here), as well as on "Another Man" and "Agony & The Ecstasy". Other tracks include "Easy", "Winter Love", "All Of A Sudden", "Tied Up", and "Don't I Ever Cross Your Mind". CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... CD CD format
A&M/Soul Jazz (UK), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even hipper than the group's early pop for A&M. The album features an excellent version of "For What It's Worth" that has a tight drumbreak which has been sampled often, as well as a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Lost in the Paradise" which is a good translation of the song to an American idiom! Other tracks include "Viramundo", "Stillness", "Chelsea Morning", and "Sometimes In Winter". A real gem – and one of the group's most overlooked albums! CD

Gene RainsFar Away Lands – The Exotic Music Of Gene Rains ... CD CD format
Real Gone/Decca, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
A sweet anthology of the late 50s and early 60s exotica groovers Gene Rains recorded for Decca! As a group leader, he's got the sunny exotic island vibe down pat – even if he doesn't get the kind genre esteem as his more famous contemporaries Les Baxter and Martin Denny! The instrumentation has a bit more of smaller combo vibe that some the more orchestra exotica – making really nice use of vibes, piano and and lots of cool percussion. There's some occasional groovy thematic effects – crashing wave sounds, distant vocal chants and more – but nothing cliched, and not too heavy-handed. 19 tracks in all: "Hana Maui", "Harbor Lights", "Africa", "Jungle Drums", "Songs Of Delilah", "Mapuana", "Lonely Winter", "Flamingo", "Jasmine And Jade", "Bangcock Cockfight", "Strange Cargo", "Sayonara", "Lotus Land" and more.
