Gil Scott-HeronWinter In America ... LP
Strata East, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $49.99
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

Ugly Things, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 9.95
The Flamin Groovies are on the cover this time around – as part of a massive article inside that documents the making of the group's classic Teenage Head album! And as usual, Ugly Things has way more to offer than the usual magazine of its type – almost more of a book-style presentation, with a heavy glossy cover – and very detailed articles within – including more features on The Human Expression, Dictators, Steve Katz, Joe Doll, The Wrecking Crew, and Psycotic Pineapple. 166 very dense pages – with loads of black and white images too.

Ben Watt with Robert WyattSummer Into Winter/North Marine Drive ... LP
Rough Trade/Mirumir, 1981/1982. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A pair of rare recordings – brought together in a single album! The core of the set is North Martine Drive – a great album that Ben Watt recorded before teaming up with Tracey Thorn in Everything But The Girl – very different than his later solo work too! The tracks are similar to those on Tracey's solo album – with spare instrumentation (Watt on guitar and piano, and Brit jazzman Peter King on alto). Watt sings in moody, flat style, on a number of nice original compositions like "North Marine Drive", "Long Time No Sea", and "On Box Hill". The set also includes 5 tracks of material recorded with Robert Wyatt, from the rare EP Summer Into Winter! This stuff is great, and is a perfect meeting of 2 talents who were performing in a similar style at the time – despite later musical divergences in their careers. Titles include the wonderful "Walter & John", plus "Aquamarine", "Slipping Slowly", and "Another Conversation With Myself". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul WinterJazz Meets The Bossa Nova ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good ... $1.99
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

M-Base Collective & OthersIntroducing M-Base – Brooklyn In The 1980s ... CD
JMT/Winter & Winter (Germany), Late 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A great overview of the M-Base movement on the New York scene of the late 80s – a group of musicians who worked together to unlock many boundaries in jazz – and really set the music free in a variety of different styles! The sounds here range from more familiar jazz to vocal work, experimental fusion, and some of the more dynamic hybrids that had been brewing on the New York scene a few years before – and although some of these artists worked together as the M-Base Collective, this set focuses on selections from different solo artist albums that were recorded for the JMT label back in the late 80s, many of which are now out of print. Titles include "Lies" and "If You Only Knew How" by Cassandra Wilson, "Chelsea Bridge" by Gary Thomas, "Drifter" by Jean Paul Bourelly, "Irate Blues" by Steve Coleman, "The Night Before" by Robin Eubanks, "Micro Move" by Strata Institute, "Mindgames" by Greg Osby, and "For John Malachi" by a trio with Geri Allen, Paul Motian, and Charlie Haden.

Pacific Jazz, 1958. Near Mint- ... $38.99
One of Chet's rarer albums from the Pacific Jazz years – a late 50s set that compiles earlier recordings, making for a whopping 14 tracks in all from Chet's glory days! The core of the album features Chet fronting the original quartet with Russ Freeman on piano, plus some occasional guest guitar work – but a number of tracks also feature appearances by Bill Perkins and Jimmy Guiffre. Tracks are short and very to the point – in that early Baker mode – and titles include "Look For The Silver Lining", "Band Aid", "Pavane", "Winter Wonderland", "Batter Up", "Long Ago & Far Away", "Carson City Stage", "But Not For Me", and "My Funny Valentine".

Robbie BashoTwilight Peaks (with bonus download) ... LP
Smeraldina Rima (Belgium), 1984. New Copy ... $24.99
Incredible work from guitarist Robbie Basho – a player who finally seems to be getting the same sort of due as his sometime-labelmate John Fahey! Basho's style is quite different, but equally sublime – this effortless cascading of notes on the acoustic guitar – played at a level that almost feels as if there's a chorus of instrumentalists working together, even though it's just Basho solo – but with this ethereal, laidback quality that never feels gimmicky or show-offy at all. There's a deeply spiritual feel to this record – one of the last that Basho ever made – but never a quality that's hippy dippy or new age, especially for the time. Titles include "Golden Dragon", "Lament For Earth", "Twilight Peaks", "Afternoon & Evening", and "Where Butterflies In Winter Go". LP, Vinyl record album

Joanne BrackeenAFT ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Really great work from pianist Joanne Brackeen – a player who's always got plenty to offer, but who really seems to find a special space here – working in a unique trio that features Clint Houston on bass and Ryo Kawasaki on guitar! Houston's bass is wonderful – full, rich, and very well-rounded – an element that brings so much depth to the record that both Ryo and Joanne can really take off – Kawasaki on these colorful lines that have a bit more bite than his more fusiony guitar albums as a leader, and Brackeen with these incredibly deft, incredibly well-spun lines on piano. The balance of sounds is wonderful – very fresh and unique – and titles include "Aft", "Haiti B", "Dreamers", and "Winter Is Here". CD

✨✧ Dave BrubeckJazz Impressions Of New York ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good+ ... $4.99
New York's a mighty big place, but it's got a nicely intimate feel in this 60s set from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – one of the combo's overlooked gems from their years on Columbia! The music is all from the TV show Mr Broadway, but there's hardly a showtune feel to the set – and instead, the groove is almost in a hip Henry Mancini sort of mode, but delivered with a smaller combo feel. Tracks are somewhat shorter than the usual Brubeck outing, and balanced nicely between upbeat tracks and more sensitive ones – the former with some well-cut lines by Paul Desmond on alto sax, the latter often with a bit more piano from Dave. The rest of the group includes Gene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums – and titles include "Mr Broadway", "Broadway Bossa Nova", "Sixth Sense", "Something To Sing About", "Spring In Central Park", "Lonely Mr Broadway", "Winter Ballad", "Upstage Rhumba", and "Summer On The Sound".

Vashti BunyanSome Things Just Stick In Your Mind – Singles & Demos 1964 to 1967 ... LP
DiCristina, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
Beautiful early work from British singer Vashti Bunyan – an important figure in the acid folk scene at the end of the 60s, heard here on some really wonderful work from a few years before! Some of the tracks have a really trippy style, and others are a bit more like conventional Brit girl pop of the time – but given a very weird twist overall, with a sound that's quite hard to describe! Vashti's vocals have these really dark qualities overall – and even when the backings are fuller (which often they are not), there's a sad, earthy feel to her singing. But equally great is her guitar work – heard with more prominence on most of the album's previously-unissued tracks from mid 60s tapes. Bunyan plays with these warm harmonics that kind of nestle and bristle underneath her vocals – pushing the tunes up with a sense of brightness in contrast to the voice – almost in a Nick Drake sort of way (and trust us, we don't throw around comparisons to his music easily!) The package is a wonderful look at these almost-lost years of Vashti's career – and it features both sides of her Decca and Columbia singles, an unreleased Immediate single, and a lot more tracks pulled from rare tapes from 1964, 1966, and 1967! Set features 25 tracks that include "Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind", "Train Song", "Love Song", "Winter Is Blue", "Leave Me", "How Do I Know", "Go Before Dawn", "Girl's Song In Winter", "Don't Believe", "17 Pink Sugar Elephants", "Someday", and "I Know".

A great little album by Jerry – recorded during a period where he was using his fame (and cash!) to showcase younger talents in soul music. In this case, the younger talents include Terry Callier – who contributed two songs to this album, including his semi-hit "Ordinary Joe", which Jerry does in a nice groovy style. Other tracks include "You & Me", "Real Good Man", "Life's Unfortunate Sons", "No Money Down", and "Winter Of A Loving Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

David ByrneKnee Plays (CD & DVD) ... CD
Nonesuch, 1985. Used CD & DVD ... $9.99
A really great record from David Byrne – songs and spoken bits that were originally designed to be used in Robert Wilson's Civil Wars – but which work great on their own! Byrne is completely charming in the spoken bits – with a sense of dry wit mixed with humanism, not that different from Laurie Anderson at the time – and instrumentation features a range of reeds and trumpets, gently cascading with the rhythms of the tunes – but in a relatively subtle way. Tracks include the wonderful "Tree" – aka "Today Is An Important Occasion" – plus "In The Upper Room", "Sound Of Business", "Admiral Perry", "I Bid You Goodnight", "In The Future", "Where The Sun Never Goes Down", "Theadora Is Dozing", "Social Studies", "Winter", and "The Jungle Book". This edition includes a DVD with a slide show of the performance that incorporates the music. CD

FrameFrame Of Mind ... LP
Bellaphon/Be! (Germany), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
A group with German origins, but one who also sings in English too – really soaring out over some wonderful fuzz-heavy tracks in the set! Hammond, piano, and mellotron all make key appearances here – held together by some searing guitar lines, and topped with soulful lead vocals that often get a bit of harmony support – in a mode that seems to push the soulful expressions of the mod years into hard rock territory, and with wonderful results – all a few shades shy of some of the bigger rock acts of the time, and with this heady quality that makes you feel like you've found some lost group in the shadows behind Black Sabbath or Deep Purple, but maybe a bit more laidback overall. Titles include "Children's Freedom", "Frame Of Mind", "Penny For An Old Guy", "Winter", and "If". LP, Vinyl record album

FreeezSouthern Freeez (plus Anti Freeez & bonus tracks) ... CD
SFE (UK), 1981. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
The clubby jazz funk debut of Freeez – plus the Anti-Freeez remix album from a couple years later – issued together along with even more bonus material in this great 2CD set! Dancefloor ready live band grooving is the warmly beating heart of the Freeez sound at this early point – with heated drums and killer basslines driving it – clearly influenced by late 70s international club sounds, but with this great, tight energy and dexterous musicianship that could only come from a real, functioning, true band. Nice stuff! Disc One includes the original album & remixes: "Mariposa (Butterfly)", "Caribbean Winter", "Easy On The Onions", "Sunset", "Flying High", "Roller Chase", "First Love" and more from the original, plus bonus tracks including "Ainti-Freeez (Set Me Free) – Disco Version", "Fly By Night", "Flying High (12" Remix)" and more. Disc Two includes early singles, demos, instrumentals and the complete Anti-Freeez remix album from 1984 – with "Keep In Touch", "Hot Footing It", "Stay", "Roller Chase (1984 Remix)", "Alone (1984 Remix)", "One To One (1984 Remix)", "Caribbean Winter (1984 Remix)", "Say You Will Be My Lover (Previously Unreleased Demo)" and more. 30 tracks on 2CDs.

Eydie GormeLove Is A Season (Japanese pressing) ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1958. Used ... $14.99
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". CD

Danny GrissettIn Between ... CD
Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
Pianist Danny Grissett has really grown into a master of tone in recent years – a player who seems to find just the right way to make all his notes resonate strongly with this incredible sense of harmony and presence – so full of color and life, a record like this makes us feel like we're hearing him for the first time all over again! The balance of sound and structure here is wonderful – as Grissett can be economical, but always right on the money – doing a heck of a lot with just a little, and really finding a way to set fire with the tenor sax of Walter Smith III, whose presence here creates this crackle, a sparkle, that leaps off from the rhythms by Vincente Archer on bass and Bill Stewart on drums. Most of the best tracks here are Grissett originals – and titles include "Winter Silence", "Blue J", "Mr Wiggle Worm", "The In Between", and "Seven Tune". CD

Ryo KawasakiMirror Of My Mind (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Satellites/Think (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

KlanNerwy Miast ... CD
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

RPM (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $3.99
A nice bit of psych folk from the UK – Paul Korda's Passing Stranger record from 1971. 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!

✨✧ Love UnlimitedUnder The Influence Of Love Unlimited ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
Great stuff from the girls who first put Barry White on the map! The record is the group's second – and by this point, Barry had developed that tight snapping drum sound that made his orchestral albums work so well. You'll hear it to good effect on most songs on the LP, which have a great groove that's in the best Barry White mode of the 70s – but which kind of dominates the girls' vocals a bit. Not that anyone should complain that much, as it's the overall package that's always made Barry's albums sound so great – but we do wonder how the group felt when they had to sit out the first track, which was the instrumental "Love's Theme", a song that went onto become Barry's biggest song ever, and which probably sold the album a lot more than the vocal tracks. Still, you can hardly detect a note of disharmony – and the album soars from track to track, through titles like "Under The Influence Of Love", "Say It Again", "Yes, We Finally Made It", and "It May Be Winter Outside".

Johnny MathisJohnny Mathis – The Singles (4CD set) ... CD
Columbia, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $52.99 59.98
A very cool package of work from the legendary Johnny Mathis – and one that brings together a fair bit of material that never made it onto his full length LPs! The set's filled with singles that Mathis recorded during his landmark run for Columbia Records – not just well-known a-sides, but also the b-sides too – and a number of lesser-known cuts that were unusual singles, but never scored big at the time – making for a rich range of discovery, even if you think you know Johnny's hits! The early material has that classic Columbia vibe – lush strings with an undercurrent of jazz – and those impeccable Mathis vocals throughout – and later material brings in a bit more soul, especially in the 70s. The 4CD package features 87 tracks in all – plus a booklet that contains notes and release information on each track. Titles include "You Are Beautiful", "Someone", "Story Of Our Love", "You Are Everything To Me", "I Love Her That's Why", "Gina", "Quiet Girl", "This Way Mary", "Christmas In The City Of Angels", "Take Good Care Of Her", "Walking Tall", "Among The First To Know", "Long Winter Nights", and lots more!

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! LP, Vinyl record album

Helen MerrillFeeling Is Mutual ... LP
Milestone, 1965. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A wonderfully moody session from Helen Merrill – and an obscure one too! The album was recorded in New York in 1965 – with pianist Dick Katz leading an off-beat group that featured Thad Jones on cornet, Jim Hall on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums – a combo that has equal talents for modern moments and more sensitive moods. The groove is much more fragmented than on some of Helen's earlier records for Mercury – with a jagged edge that works perfectly with her strangely detached style of presenting a lyric – a way of looking at familiar tunes almost from the outside, in ways that really come up with something new. Titles include "Baltimore Oriole", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Day Dream", "The Winter Of My Discontent", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Deep In A Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
