✨✧ Paul Winter & Carlos LyraSound Of Ipanema ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
The sound of Ipanema in the 60s – served up here in a great partnership between American jazzman Paul Winter, and bossa composer Carlos Lyra! The album's an excellent bossa jazz session all the way through – with alto from Winter that's some of his sharpest on record in the 60s, and both guitar and vocals from Lyra – who's getting his American time in the spotlight here, in the way that Joao Gilberto got with Stan Getz! Yet this album's much more of a core bossa jazz combo set than the Getz/Gilberto records – with work from a quintet that includes Sergio Mendes on piano, Milton Banana on drums, and Sebatiao Neto on bass. Titles include "O Morro", "Voce E Eu", "Maria Ninguem", "De Quem Ama", "Lobo Bobo", and "Tem Do De Mim". CD

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy ... $9.99 47.99
The continuing genius of Planet Comics – one of the first-ever comics devoted entirely to science fiction stories – still going strong here in the early 50s! Unlike some of its contemporaries during the stretch, Planet never got too creepy or too exploitative – but did use the growing comic market to really hone its craft, and perfect the kind of longer-form stories with recurring characters that made the magazine a real hit with audiences young and old. Female characters are as strong as the guys – and the art throughout is wonderful – with top-shelf pencils from artists who include Murphy Anderson, Lee Elias, Charles Sultan, Lily Renee, Arthur Peddy, Bill Benulis, Rudy Palais, and other unsung talents. The 280 page book is heavy, hardcover, and really well done – featuring seven full issues, all in color, with cover images and inside ads too. Book

✨✧ Herb AlpertChristmas Wish (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Herb Alpert, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
A nice little Holiday album from trumpeter Herb Alpert – whose 60s set with the Tijuana Brass might well be one of our favorite Christmas albums of all time! The TJB is long gone, but Herb's still in the lead – working with a larger orchestra directed by Chris Walden – who creates a shimmering array of strings, voices, and keyboards – all in an updated take of the older Herb Alpert sound – meaning that there's some nicely pointed moments that really fit the compressed, punchy horn sound that's always been Herb's calling card. The voices sometimes hit a more familiar Christmas chorus mode, but they're often then offset by Alpert's solo work – and titles include "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "Santa Baby", "Winter Wonderland", "The Christmas Wish", "Merry Christmas Darling", and "What Are You Doing New Years Eve". Herb didn't remake "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but his original 1968 version is maybe too perfect to mess with! LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonBad Benson ... LP
CTI, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
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.

Sallie BlairHello Tiger! (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1959. Used ... $19.99
Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".

Bonny Prince BillyBest Troubador (with download & bonus tracks) ... LP
Drag City, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
A tribute to the great Merle Haggard, and one of Will Oldham's best albums yet – as Bonny Prince Billy, or as any of his other noms de plume – and truly as warm and honest of an homage to Hag as we'd ever hope to hear! Merle Haggard is best known to the masses as an icon of classic country, especially hardscrabble honky tonk, but he was lover of myriad styles of rural American music, always filtering diverse strains into his own songwriting, his live and studio arrangements, and interpretations of other songwriters. As such a unique voice and writer himself, Oldham deeply understands Haggard, and in these versions of songs from throughout Haggard's career you can really hear his love and respect, while still doing his own thing with the material. It's a joy whether you're longtime fans of Palace Brothers, Bonny Prince Billy, Will Oldham et al, Merle Haggard, or even just timeless, unique, largely acoustic music. There's a lot to love here! Includes unique versions of a couple Hag standards, but even richer with fan favorites and lesser-known songs he wrote or lovingly adapted over the years. Includes "The Fugitive", "My Old Pal", "Haggard (Like I've Never Been Before)", "Rose In The Winter", "Nobody's Darling", "If I Could Only Fly" and more. Vinyl version is has 2 unlisted bonus tracks, too: "Mama Tried" and "No Time To Cry". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leonard CohenSongs Of Leonard Cohen ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Leonard Cohen's debut for Columbia, one of the most astounding first albums of its era, and to this day a towering achievement in both songwriting and myth making! The production is that perfectly haunting mix of sparseness and grandeur, with Cohen's lyricism piercing and penetrating wonderfully – his voice never sounded better, and this is certainly one of the great "lightening in a bottle" efforts that was hard to top by Cohen or anyone else in the more poetic upper levels of pop music. Includes ""Suzanne", "Master Song", "Winter Lady", "The Stranger Song", "Sisters Of Mercy", "So Long, Marianne", "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye", "Stories Of The Street", "Teachers" and "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong".

Earth OperaComplete Elektra Recordings – Earth Opera/The Great American Eagle Tragedy ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1968/1969. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.99
Excellent work by a near-forgotten act that blossomed briefly at the end of the 60s folk-rock boom – the incredible Earth Opera, a group that tied together many styles into a rich and unique sound! Both the albums on this set came out of the crumbling Boston scene of the late 60s – showing echoes of that city's optimistic folk scene of the earlier part of the decade, sliding into the more introspective musings of the singer/songwriter era. The group was the brainchild of singer/guitarist Peter Rowan, but also featured quite a bit of support from a young David Grisman – playing here on mandolin, piano, and a bit of alto sax. The tracks are folksy, but with lots of jazzy undercurrents – almost in a Tim Buckley mode at times, but with themes that are farther reaching, and often more political. The set brings together both of the group's albums for Elektra, plus two singles – and titles include "The Red Sox Are Winning", "As It Is Before", "Dreamless", "Home To You", "Sanctuary From The Law", "All Winter Long", and "Roast Beef Love".

Torun EriksenGrand White Silk ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
Torun Eriksen just seems to get better and better as the years go on – a singer/songwriter who should be really hitting international fame with records like this – and not just stuck in the farther reaches of the Scandinavian scene! Ericksen's got a warmly flowing sense of soul to her vocals, but nicely chooses to work with offbeat instrumentation – mostly arranged here by guitarist Kjetil Dalland, who's never too gimmicky, but has a way of making familiar sounds unfamiliar in the ways that he opens them up – just slightly offsetting the straightness of Torun's vocals, to point towards here more compelling turns of phrase. The album's got a fair bit more warmth than other sessions on the Jazzland label, but also is, like the other great work on that imprint, quite far from conventional. Titles include "Winter Today", "Right Here", "More", "Take My Time", "Downhill", "Compromise", and "Grand White Silk". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz5 Original Albums Vol 2 (Jazz Samba/Jazz Samba Encore/With Laurindo Almeida/Getz Gilberto/Getz Gilberto 2) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $19.99
An insane collection of music – five albums that perfectly showcase the bossa nova genius of Stan Getz! First up is Jazz Samba – one of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a big early proponent of bossa nova rhythms, and had already been experimenting with them on his records of the time – yet also gets a key extra "umph" here in the presence of Stan's tenor – a bold, rich, soulful sound that really helps give the music a lot of direction – in ways that still resonate strongly all these many years later! Getz is completely sublime – a master of tone and timing throughout – and perfectly fit to these tunes. Rhythms are mostly from Byrd's trio, augmented with some extra percussion – and titles include the classic "Desafinado", plus "E Luxo So", "Samba Dees Days", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba De Uma Nota So", and "Baia". Jazz Samba Encore is hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time of the record, and arguably one of the few who really got it going back home in Rio. Stan's tenor sounds wonderful – as carefully and soufully blown as on the first set, but also with some new colors and tones too. Bonfa's wife Maria Toledo sings a bit on the record – hinting at Stan's work to come with Astrud Gilberto (this album was cut right before the Getz/Gilberto collaboration) – and the record also features added work on piano and guitar from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim – more than enough proof that the album's got a pure bossa pedigree! Titles include "Menina Flor", "Ebony Samba", "Saudade Vem Correndo", "Sambalero", "Samba De Duas Notas", and "Mania De Maria". With Laurindo Almeida is one of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Getz Gilberto is a landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando". Getz Gilberto 2 is a very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato".

Beverly GlennCopeland Keyboard Fantasies ... LP
Invisible City Editions (Canada), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A weird little record that's a bit hard to peg – not really jazz, but also not really anything else as well – kind of it its own special category that fits the "keyboard fantasies" title! Beverly Glenn-Copeland plays Yamaha and Roland keyboards, with a definite 80s sound – but also a bit more warmth than you might expect – on these spare, tuneful tracks that often feature a bit of her own vocals, but layered in ways that still mostly seem to have the keyboards in the lead. The whole thing's maybe on the sweeter side of Suzanne Ciani's spectrum – but about as unique as and Beverly's own thing too. Titles include "Slow Dance", "Ever New", "Winter Astral", "Let Us Dance", and "Sunset Village". LP, Vinyl record album

Eydie GormeLove Is A Season ... LP
ABC, 1958. Very Good ... $1.99
A season-themed album from Eydie Gorme – a great date from the early years, and one that has her working with jazzy backings from the great Don Costa! Don's got a great ear for both sides of Eydie's talents – the upbeat, swinging style that always sounds cheery – and the straighter, more serious way with a ballad that doesn't always get its due! The tunes all have season-based themes – a format used by other singers over the years, certainly, but a really great foil here for Gorme's many-varied talents – as the shifting months of the year give her good reason to change her tune from track to track. Titles include "Love Is A Season", "Winter Night", "June In January", "On The First Warm Day", "I'll Remember April", "Easter Parade", and "Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year".

The title's a reference to the double-length nature of the set – but it might also be taken as a reference to the group's sound, too – as Heron's got a slightly fuller approach than on their debut album! There's more electric instrumentation in the mix, and arrangements that have the band stepping out more strongly with some rockish inflections, even though the overall approach is still pretty darn folksy – and handled with that really unique, really personal style that makes the group one of the best of the Brit folk scene from the period. Titles include "Madman", "John Brown", "Miss Kiss", "Love 13", "Winter Harlequin", and "Big A". CD

ABC/Elemental (Spain), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
There's no need for The Impressions to push from behind – because with a record like this, they're very firmly in the driver's seat! The album's a treasure through and through – one of the greatest documents of 60s soul from the Chicago scene – filled with sublime original compositions by a young Curtis Mayfield, set to great arrangements from the legendary Johnny Pate! The sound here is immaculate – a groove that's slightly stepping, gently lilting – just enough to get things moving, but with plenty of care not to smother the fragile harmonies of the group. And as on other of the best ABC albums by The Impressions, there's not a hint of filler here – just one great track after another, with titles that include "Amen", "I Made A Mistake", "Don't Let It Hide", "Keep On Pushing", "Somebody Help Me", "Long Long Winter", and "I've Been Trying".

One of Ahmad Jamal's great mid 80s sets for Atlantic Records – recorded in a spacious acoustic mode that has Jamal crafting beautiful tones on the Steinway, yet never falling into overindulgence! The record's got a surprisingly rhythmic quality – as the drums of Herlin Riley and bass of James Cammack are often augmented by percussion from Manola Badrena – fleshing out tunes with complicated changes that soar alongside Jamal's free-floating lines on the keys. The array of colors here is simply beautiful – deeper and more expressive than Ahmad's sound in earlier years – on titles that include "Without You", "Acorn", "Yellow Fellow", "Autumn Rain", and "Winter Snow".

Ryo KawasakiMirror Of My Mind ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... About November 29, 2017
A fantastic fusion classic from guitarist Ryo Kawasaki – and a set that shows his perfect balance between American and Japanese jazz modes in the 70s! The album's got a bit more of a soulful focus than some of Kawasaki's previous work, but loses none of the depth of his feeling – as the approach here is less commercial fusion, than a cool underground blending of jazz, funk, and even a bit of Brazilian – with a quality that reminds us of some of most interesting work on the Bay Area scene of the period. Recording was done in New York – with help from fusion heavyweights that include Leon Pendarvis on keyboards, Harvey Mason on drums, and Michael Brecker on tenor – and singer Radha Shottam appears on half the record, really augmenting the soulful vibe of the set at those points. Even the mellower moments have a nice sort of richness, and a deeper spirit than usual for this sort of record – and titles include the soulful classic "Trinkets & Things" – a worldwide jazz dance classic – plus "Little One", "In & Out Of Love", "Brasiliana", and "Winter's Here".

A fantastic debut from Khalid – a singer we're expecting will shape the sound of American soul in years to come – thanks to the strength of the work on this album! Khalid's got a voice that's totally unique – upfront about his weaknesses and youth, which he never tries to hide with any sort of overdone cliches or posturing – in ways that bring a whole new sort of honesty to mainstream soul! The presentation of the tunes is nicely fresh, too – sometimes quite lean, but not in a way to evoke any sort of "fake" soul – as can sometimes be the case – and instead just open to the organic flow of the words of the singer, which are even more powerful in the subtlety of the setting. Titles include "Young Dumb & Broke", "Another Sad Love Song", "Coaster", "8Teen", "Cold Blooded", "Therapy", "Winter", and "American Teen". LP, Vinyl record album

Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older crack rhythms with some newer, hipper, jazzier inflections – making for an incredibly powerful sound that really opens them up. Titles include the massively funky "Jungle Jazz" – a jazzy follow up to "Jungle Boogie" – plus some spiritual numbers that have a cosmic soul jazzy feel, like the tracks "Cosmic Energy", "Ancestral Ceremony", and "Winter Sadness". The whole thing's great – and other titles include "Mother Earth", "Caribbean Festival", and "Ride The Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic album that brings together all of the European winners of the recent Downbeat polls – like Karin Krog, John Surman, Albert Mangelsdorff, Francy Boland, Daniel Humair, and Niels Henning Orsted-Pedersen. The sextet is a lively batch of free-swinging European jazz stylists, with touches of modernism that keep the whole session on edge throughout – in a way that's right up there with the best of the classic MPS sessions! The highlight of the set is Karin Krog's beautiful vocal version of "Maiden Voyage", but there's loads of other nice bits – like "Winter Song", "Ryoan-Ji", "Open Space", and "Hello Thursday". A great one, and darn tough to find! LP, Vinyl record album

Cleo Laine with John DankworthThis Is Cleo Laine (aka Shakespeare & All That Jazz) ... LP
Fontana/Philips, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A weird one – but one of the real standouts in Cleo Laine's 60s catalog! As the title might imply, Cleo sings jazz versions of Shakespeare poems and bits from plays – with musical backing by husband Johnny Dankworth, who gives the set a cool enough groove to really make it work, and keeps things from being as stuff as you might fear! Kenny Wheeler plays a fair bit of trumpet solos when Cleo's not singing – further emphasizing the jazz component of the record, and moving it away from the flowery language of The Bard. There's a strangely sinister feel here that we really like – and titles include "Blow Blow Thou Winter Wind", "Duet Of Sonnets", "Winter", "O Mistress Mine", 'Witches Fair & Foul", and "The Compleat Works". LP, Vinyl record album
