David FriedmanWinter Love, April Joy ... CD
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

LibraWinter Day's Nightmare ... LP
Motown, 1976. Sealed ... $5.99
The second Motown release by this group – a nice mix of jazzy soul and rock styles, handled with production and arrangements that are better than the group's first album. There's some nice smooth LA sounds on the set – and the vocals have a rough edge that's almost got a bit of a David Bowie feel on a few cuts, making for a very strange mix of styles. Titles include "Lucy Squirrel", "My First Rainbow", "This Chain", "Hey Carlito", and "Full Winter Day's Nightmare". LP, Vinyl record album

Nice batch of bossa tracks, recorded in Rio with a very authentic sound! Paul Winter plays alto with an all-star combo that includes Sergio Mendes on piano, Milton Banana on drums, and Carlos Lyra on guitar and vocals. The session's a nice one for Lyra, who gets to act as a "Joao Gilberto-ish" partner to Winter's "Stan Getz" in this collaboration that's similar to the classic bossa albums on Verve. Titles include "O Morro", "Voce E Eu", "Maria Ninguem", "De Quem Ama", "Lobo Bobo", and "Tem Do De Mim". CD

✨✧ Tommy RoePaisley Dreams – The Pop Psych Sounds Of Tommy Roe (It Is Now Winter's Day/Phantasy) ... CD
ABC/Rev-Ola (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two dreamy little albums from Tommy Roe – definitely more tripped-out than his usual work! First up is It Is Now Winter's Day – a set that goes way farther than Tommy's "Dizzy" hit, thanks to production and arrangements from Sunshine maestro Curt Boettcher! The style here is definitely a lot more trippy than we remember in Tommy's work – still pop, but filled with weird rhythms, odd production, and unusual references in most every tune. Credit should definitely be given to Roe too, as he wrote nearly every song on the album – but we can also hear a real Millenium-era sound in the way the whole thing was put together, a sense of playful polish and gentle fuzz that really keeps the record exciting! Titles include "Leave Her", "Moontalk", "Golden Girl", "Misty Eyes", "Long Live Love", "Nightime", "Sweet Sounds", "Cry On Crying Eyes", and "Have Pity On Me". Phantasy is great work from the trippier period of Tommy Roe's career – a time when he was picking up some much headier influences in his music, as you might guess from the spelling of the title! There's still a bit of a pop undercurrent in the music, but it's also inflected by odd use of strings, strange-sounding guitar, and other instrumental elements that work against the sweeter qualities of Tommy's vocals to help give these songs a fair amount of depth. Most tracks are originals by Roe, but the album also features a few by Sandy Salisbury, who also sings a bit on the record – as part of the harmony backup that surfaces on some of the better tunes. Arrangements are by Mike Henderson, and titles include "Plastic World", "Paisley Dreams", "Mystic Magic", "The Executive", "The You I Need", "It's Gonna Hurt Me", and "Little Miss Sunshine". CD

✨✧ Johnny WinterByrds Can't Row Boats – The Unreleased Masters Collection 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great collection of early work from Johnny Winter – singles and studio tracks from the few years before he burst on the scene with Columbia Records at the end of the 60s – served up in a range of styles that include psych and folk rock, in addition to Winter's more familiar bluesy sounds! The collection features 36 tracks, all sourced from the original tapes – and presented at a level that's much better than any other previous attempt to look at Johnny's early years – with 21 titles that appear here for the first time ever! There's almost more of an LA early 60s vibe to the music than you'd expect – hence the play on The Byrds in the title – and the psychedelic numbers are perhaps some of the most revelatory here. Titles include "The World Turns All Around Her", "Easy Lovin Girl", "Parchman Farm", "Pneumonia Blues", "Sloppy Drunk", "Comin Up Fast", "Livin In The Blues", "Birds Can't Row Boats", "Goin Down Slow", "Don't Drink Whiskey", "32 20 Blues", "Bad News", "Ballad Of Bertha Glutz", and "Hook You".

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

Uri CaineBedrock 3 ... CD
Winter & Winter (Germany), 2001. Used ... $3.99
Pretty wild work from keyboardist Uri Caine – working here in a trio format, mostly, with occasional additional vocals and turntable work. Caine plays both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes on the set – and it's his work on the latter that really makes the record great. He's got sort of a spacey funky groove that's part Herbie Hancock Sextant era, part more spacious jamming – and the tight bass and drum backing on the album makes for some nicely grooving material that's also a bit "out" at the same time! Titles include "Toe Jam", "Red Eye", "Lobby Daze", "Humphrey Pass My Way", "Skins", "Fang", and "Nymphomania". CD

A number of the tracks have vocals in Portuguese – and the style of the music mixes the smoother sound you'd expect from Brazilian jazz, with some of the more off-beat touches you'll find in Caine's other work. Titles include "Teu Chamego", "Assalto Cultural", "Na Lapa", "Um Minuto So", "Adeus", "Samba Da Rua", "Choro Maluco", and "Revulucionario". 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

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".

Debo BandFlamingoh (Pink Bird Dawn) EP ... CD
CRC, 2011. Used Gatefold ... $3.99
A strong set from the Ethiopian groove-inspired Debo Band – a Boston based group with a deep love of Ethio jazz and funk – doing it proudly on this EP of live recordings from their trip to East Africa in the winter of 2010! Captured during their short residency an Addis Ababa nightclub, it's a completely solid, vibrant interpretation of classic brass-heavy funk & jazz of 70s Ethiopia. Guest vocalist Selamnesh Zemene and traditional drummer Asrat Ayalew perform with the group, which includes vocalist Bruck Tesfaye, accordionist Stacey Cordeiro, violinists Kaethe Hostetter and Jonah Rapino, sax players Danny Mekonnen and Abye Osman, guitarist Brendon Wood, sousaphone player Arik Grier, bass player PJ Goodwin and drummer Keith Waters. Includes "Musicawi Silt", "Belomi Benna", "Mignoten Man Yawkal" and "Lantchi Biye". CD

Sylvia DeSaylesBest Is Yet To Come ... LP
Regina, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Sylvia DeSayles is quite an unusual singer – one with a deeper voice than most of her contemporaries, and a way of putting over a tune from the toes upward! The style's a bit like Morgana King, but never as mellow – as Sylvia really seems to put a bit of force on some tracks. But the record's also a pretty strong one, thanks to backings from Peter Matz and Sy Oliver – both of whom set DeSayles up with styles that fall nicely in the reworked vocal territory of the early 60s – that legacy of Cy Coleman and other contemporaries that made things a bit groovier than before. Titles include "The Best Is Yet To Come", "Wild Is Love", "Strange", "It Amazes Me", "Warm Winter", "Don't Explain", "Maried I Can Always Get", and "I'll See You Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1964. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Seminal "new thing" work by Bill Dixon and Archie Shepp! The album is divided in two – so that one side features work by Dixon, playing in a group with Ken McIntyre; and the other side features Shepp leading a combo that includes Ted Curson, John Tchicai, and Don Cherry. Both sides are some of the most seminal "new thing" sessions ever recorded, and they have a fantastic quality that far outstrips later work by both artists. Titles include "The 12th December", "Winter Song, 1964", "Where Poppies Bloom", and "Consequences". Incredible stuff, and darn hard to find in this original pressing! LP, Vinyl record album

DR HookerArmageddon (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
On Records, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A heady bit of mid-70s psych from Connecticut – the second album from Dr Hooker Band – recorded in 1974, but not issued until many years later! The album's a true treasure that deserves wider recognition – at some level as heady as any of the best known indie psych sets from the late 60s, but at another coming across at points with a raw intensity that shows that Hooker's generation definitely had a dose of The Stooges in their blood too! Instrumentation gets a bit tripped-out at points – with some cool keyboards by Bob Reardon – and titles include "Hello", "Free", "Winter", "Kamala", "A Tormented Heart", and "This Thing".

Danny GrissettIn Between ... CD

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

ImpressionsKeep On Pushing/People Get Ready ... CD
ABC/Kent (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of 60s classics by the mighty Impressions – back to back on a single CD! On Keep On Pushing, 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". People Get Ready is one of the greatest albums ever from The Impressions – and a set that takes their work to a whole new level, by bringing in an even more righteous sound! The core elements of the group's 60s genius are all in place here – compositions from Curtis Mayfield, arrangements from Johnny Pate, and sublime harmonies from the group. But there's also something extra too – a new level of consciousness that's creeping into the music, hinting at the more righteous subject matter of later years – but with a much more subtle approach. All tracks are great – and titles include "See the Real Me", "Woman's Got Soul", "We're In Love", "Can't Work No Longer", and "Emotions". CD

Shanachie, 2010. Used ... $6.99
Hard to believe it's the 30th Anniversary for Incognito – but Bluey's been at it for that long, and to celebrate, he's having one hell of a party with this record! The album's got way more going on than even a regular Incognito set – even though those are plenty darn great – as Bluey's invited plenty of folks along for the celebration, a range of great singers who really open up the sound, and deepen the core jazzy grooves of the set! In addition to regular vocalists like Joy Rose, Tony Momrelle, and Maysa, the set also features work by Leon Ware, Chaka Khan, John-Christian Urich, Ursula Rucker, Vanessa Haynes, and Mario Biondi – the last of whom really brings a lot to the set, with that cool vocal approach used on his Schema albums. And as usual for Bluey, the sound is way more than just straight soul – with plenty of classic jazz funk elements, and a strong nod to the underground sounds of the British scene who've always fostered his music. Titles include "Line In The Sand", "1975", "Your Sun My Sky", "Put A Little Lovin In Your Heart", "All Of My Life", "Expresso Madureira", "Make Room For Love", "Lowdown", "Tell Me What To Do", and "The Winter Of My Springs".

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".

Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 2 – Welcome Home (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A tremendous second step for Chicago soul legend Walter Jackson – packaged here with a huge amount of bonus tracks as well! The core album is a sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other side of the fence – as Walter's working here with arranger Riley Hampton to re-cast a number of familiar tunes in his cool Iceman soul mode – changing the themes, rhythms, and inflections of the tracks for a more contemporary soul market – and also interspersing them with a few great new songs of his own! The approach is amazing – far better than even Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson's work in a similar idiom – and the album features the sublime hit "Welcome Home", plus the Van McCoy tunes "Suddenly I'm All Alone", "Still At The Mercy Of Your Love", and "The Magic's Gone" – alongside versions of "Moon River", "Let It Be Me", "Imagination", and "My Funny Valentine". Added to the original album are 7 more rare tracks pulled from singles – some of the true gems in Jackson's 60s career for Okeh – with titles that include "Deep In The Heart Of Harlem", "Cold Cold Winter", "That's When I Come To You", "Special Love", "One Heart Lonely", "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", and "The Folks Who Live On The Hill".

No bebop here, despite what you might guess from the title – and instead an album of much freer lines and wider musical vision, captured with Keith Jarrett's famous group of the 70s! Jarrett plays a bit of soprano sax alongside his piano, and the rest of the quartet features Dewey Redman on tenor and musette, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums and percussion – all in a mode that's somewhat quieter and not as earthy as their early 70s sides together, but still filled with the great sense of interplay that made the group a noteworthy one. Titles include "Pyramids Moving", "Mushi Mushi", "Silence", "Gotta Get Some Sleep", and "Blackberry Winter". LP, Vinyl record album

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". CD also features 2 previously unissued bonus tracks – "Ally" and "Supplication". CD

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 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! LP, Vinyl record album

MF Grimm & Drasar MonumentalGood Morning Vietnam 3 – The Phoenix Program ... LP
Vendetta Records, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
The final entry in the Good Morning Vietnam trilogy from veteran underground rhymer/writer MF Grimm and producer Drasar Monumental – perhaps the rawest and hardest hitting of the three! The smart, dexterous rhymes are laced with wartime imagery and backed by thematic samples throughout, always walking the fineline between hypnotic heaviness and sensory overload. It's a delicate balance – and they make it work strongly once again on this closing entry in the series –always with enough jazzy funk and cracking soul in the beats to keep your heads nodding, even in the heaviest moments. Includes "Birth Of Violence", "Rhymes Against Humanity", "Songs Of The Winter Soldier", "Economics", "One Bullet Away, Two Steps From Home", "Dust To Dust", "Family Birthday", "Harmonics", "Chain Letter", "For Those That Want To Label Us", "Glaciers Of Icex", "Hand Up To Heaven, Feet Firm In Hell" and more.

Modern Jazz Quartet/Quartetto Di Milano/HungarianQuartet Is A Quartet Is A Quartet ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1964. New Copy ... $1.99 11.98
The title's a bit misleading, because while the 3 groups on the session are all quartets, they're hardly similar in the associative way the record assumes! Side one features 4 tracks by the Modern Jazz Quartet – re-recordings of a few classics, plus one new one for the set – titles that include "Reunion Blues", "Winter Tale", "Concorde", and "Yesterdays". But side two actually features a string quartet – Quartetto Di Milano – playing the atonal "Funf Satze" by Anton Webern – plus the Hungarian Gypsy Quartet, doing a concert medley of traditional tunes in a violin-based way. So while the album may be some sort of attempt by the MJQ to further tie themselves to Europe – it's also kind of an unusual mix of jazz, avant classical, and folkloric styles! CD

MoveMove (3CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1968. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
A hell of a stunner from The Move – the group's first full album, and a set that burns beautifully on so many different levels! The set's almost equal parts mod and psych – with all the sharpness of the former, and lots of the fuzz and inventive production of the latter – served up here at a level that few others could touch at the time – maybe The Who or The Creation at their best – both key contemporaries of The Move, although the group owe nothing to them at all, and stand strongly, brilliantly here on their own! The whole record is incredible – filled with excellent songs by Roy Wood, who also plays superb guitar throughout – with lead vocals from Carl Wayne, incredible production from Denny Cordell, and even some excellent arrangements from the young Tony Visconti. Every song is a gem – and titles include "Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree", "Yellow Rainbow", "Kilroy Was Here", "The Girl Outside", "Fire Brigade", "Cherry Blossom Clinic", "Mist On A Monday Morning", and "Useless Information". Plus, this 3CD version has a stunning amount of extra material – 52 bonus tracks that include "Vote For Me", "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", "Don't Hang Up", "Night Of Fear", "Disturbance", "You're The One I Need", "Winter Song", "The Fugitive", "Respectable", "Too Many Fish In The Sea", and "I Can't Hear You No More" – plus rare stereo mixes (the core album is in mono), and 19 more BBC sessions from 1967 and 1968 – performances on Top Gear, Easybeat, and Saturday Club.

✨✧ Aaron Parks/Thomas Fonnesbaek/Karsten BaggeGroovements ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
A wonderful trio date from pianist Aaron Parks – one that's got an exceptionally well-rounded sound, thanks to superb work on bass from Thomas Fonnesbaek, and some deftly lyrical drums from Karsten Bagge! The three players work together wonderfully – and Fonnesbaek's warm glow on the bottom end of the sound really lets Parks take off with these lightly singing notes over the top – well-chosen progressions of notes that have almost a vocal quality in the way they communicate – all with a sense of warmth and imagination that we're not sure we've heard in Aaron's playing before! Titles include a great remake of Cedar Walton's "Bolivia", a surprisingly nice take on Springsteen's "I'm On Fire", and the tracks "Winter Waltz", "Alcubierre's Law", "Shapes N Colors", "Elutheria", and "Forever This Moment".
