David FriedmanWinter Love, April Joy (Inner City) ... LP
East West/Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ImpressionsAmen/Long, Long, Winter ... 7-inch
ABC, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Stone classic! The Impressions' version of "Amen" is way way more than just a quasi-religious soul song. It's a mighty anthem of power and majesty, arranged in the style of some of the group's other subtle political moments from the mid 60s! The flipside's a great Curtis Mayfield composition – done later by other artists, but sounding great here in the original version! 7-inch, Vinyl record

David Le WinterEvening At The Pump Room ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $2.99
Although the big New York hotels had their share of great Latin pianists, Chicago had it's own great one during the 50s – in the person of the little-known David Le Winter, a supremely talented pianist who seems to have only cut this one album for Mercury during the 50s. The record itself is hidden in a schmaltzy cover with notes about The Pump Room, Le Winter's home territory – but the music is incredible, and has a flowing Latiny groove played mostly by Le Winter's piano and backing by bass and bongo, and which falls in the same class as similar work by Noro Morales or Geri Galman. Titles include "Rhumba Rhapsody", "Malguena", "Cumana", "Autumn Leaves", and "Hand To Mouth Boogie". LP, Vinyl record album

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

M-Base Collective & OthersIntroducing M-Base – Brooklyn In The 1980s ... CD
JMT/Winter & Winter (Germany), Late 80s. New Copy ... $17.99 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.

A&M/Herb Alpert, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
A beautiful Holiday classic from Herb – recorded for A&M during his glory years, and done in the core Tijuana Brass style, but with some added arrangements on voices and strings by Shorty Rogers! The album's worth it alone for Herb's great take on the Bacharach groover "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but it also includes the tasty track "Las Mananitas", plus the holiday favorites "Winter Wonderland", "Jingle Bells", "The Christmas Song", "Sleigh Ride", "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" and "Jingle Bell Rock". 10 tracks in all, the perfect backdrop for the holiday office party!

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

Booker T & The MGsHip Hug Her/Doin Our Thing (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax/Edsel (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $13.99
2 full albums – plus bonus tracks too! On Hip Hug Her, Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, and the set includes loads of great original number written by the group – the kind of cool tunes they most likely cooked up while jamming live in the studio! These gems include the seminal "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Carnaby Street", "Booker's Notion", "Soul Sanction", "Double Or Nothing", and "Slim Jenkins' Place". But the covers are groovy too – and include a version of "Pigmy", plus "Groovin" and "Sunny". Doin Our Thing has Booker T & The MGs moving their instrumental sound into a whole new range than before! The album has a very groovy feel – nice and tight, with especially great organ and guitar lines – often tuned towards 60s hits by other soul artists, but reworked strongly by the group's wonderful rhythms, and turned into a really cooking batch of Memphis soul instrumentals! There's a few key original tunes on the set – like the title track "Doin Our Thing" – and the cuts "I Can Dig It" and "Blue On Green" – but the covers are equally great, and include versions of "Ode To Billie Joe", "You Keep Me Hangin On", "Expressway To Your Heart", and "Let's Go Get Stoned". Features 2 bonus tracks – "Summertime (single edit)" and "Winter Snow". CD

Dave BrubeckJazz Impressions Of New York ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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".

Ray CharlesSpirit Of Christmas ... CD
Rhino, 1985. Used ... $7.99
A great holiday album from Ray Charles – recorded in the 80s, but with a sound that's pretty classic all the way through! Ray's vocals are excellent – with that raspy intimate quality that persists all through his later years – and the sweetly jazzy arrangements work perfectly with the voice to bring new life to old classics like "What Child Is This", "Little Drummer Boy", "Winter Wonderland", and "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town". There's also a few nice obscurer numbers – like the country soul "That Spirit Of Christmas", plus "All I Want For Christmas" and "Christmas In My Heart", which both feature Ray on electric piano. CD also features a bonus cut – Ray & Betty Carter's classic reading of "Baby It's Cold Outside", from 1962. CD

Leonard CohenSongs Of Leonard Cohen ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank DeVol & The Rainbow StringsOld Sweet Songs Of Christmas ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, 1960. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The sweet strings of Frank DeVol take on a host of Christmas favorites – in a lush instrumental album that really takes us back to the sort of old time tunes our folks used to play around the Holidays! Each selection is a medley of two or three tracks – and DeVol uses string-heavy orchestrations to carve out the melodies with a somber, reverent sort of feel – a mode that's mostly secular in orientation, but has an undercurrent of seasonal spirituality. The record's got a strangely blue sort of feel – almost like the kind of record when you want to put on to have a sad Christmas – and we mean that in a good way! Titles include "Ring Christmas Bells/The First Noel/Jolly Old St Nicholas", "Winter Wonderland/Skater's Waltz", "Silver Bells/Jingle Bells", "The Christmas Song/The Twelve Days Of Christmas", and "Here Comes Santa Claus/March Of The Toys".

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". Plus, the CD feature's 2 previously unissued alternate takes! CD

Warner, 2007/2014. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Flaming Lips playing under the pseudonym Imagene Peise in 2007 – with tripped out holiday cover tunes and more! Imagene Peise is conceptualized as the work of a jazz piano player from Tikrit, Iraq of all places – and the sound is a pretty wonderful mix of Eastern psych-steeped piano and waves of swirling, very Lips-like droning atmosphere. Pretty piano leads the way, with more oddball synth, a bit of sitar, some weirdly effected vocals (which would be a dead giveaway if you didn't already know this was the Lips, as Wayne Coyne is the only human voice that sounds like this) and other elements. Includes "Winter Wonderland", "Silver Bells", "White Christmas (Binson Echorec Sleigh Ride", "Merry Christmas To You", "Altas Eets Christmas", "Frosteeeee" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Renee Fleming gets lots of great help on this special Holiday album – a lineup of guests that includes Gregory Porter, Wynton Marsalis, Kurt Elling, Chris Botti, and Brad Mehldau – all of whom make the singer come across with a fair bit more soul than usual! The guest vocalists are especially great – and both Porter and Elling sing on two songs apiece, in duets with Renee – Porter on "Central Park Serenade" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" – and Elling on "Still Still Still" and "Snowbound". Rufus Wainwright makes a surprise appearance on "In The Bleak Midwinter" – and other titles include "Winter Wonderland", "The Man With The Bag", and "Love & Hard Times". CD

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

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.

Bebel GilbertoBebel Gilberto ... CD
Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees, 2004. Used ... $4.99
Bebel's second album for Six Degrees – and quite possibly an even better album than the first! Not one to rest on the laurels of her success of recent years, Bebel seems to diverge a bit from the sound of her initial hit – going for a deeper approach to songwriting, and a musical style that shows she's got a lot more to offer than just bossa remix-styled vocals! The album kicks off with a wonderful take on Os Mutantes' English reading of the Tropicalia classic "Baby" – then rolls into a sweetly laidback set of tracks that borrow a lot from the bossa, but which also have some extremely personal songwriting touches. Overall, there's less beats and more natural instrumentation than before – and the album feautres guest work by Joao Donato and Carlinhos Brown, as well as some great use of strings! Titles include "Winter", "O Caminho", "Ceu Distante", "Next To You", "All Around", "River Song", "Every Day You've Been Away", and "Simplesmente". CD

One of the few secular, or partly-secular, recordings made by Al Green in the 80s – a set of Christmas tunes that shows he still hasn't lost any of his warmth or special spirit! The set was done for Hi Records, but the backings are a bit more contemporary than Al's 70s work for the label – never too commercial, and not cheesy at all – just somewhat more in a modern soul vein than you might usually expect from Green. Al's vocals are still wonderful throughout – crackling with a charm that reminds us of a few logs settling down on the fire on a cold winter's night – and titles include "The Christmas Song", "Winter Wonderland", "Jingle Bells", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Feels Like Christmas", and "O Holy Night". Also features "Glory Glory", from a few years earlier. CD

Killer stuff – and an amazing album that not only showcases the varitone sax talents of Eddie Harris, but also features some fantastic arrangements by Chicago soul genius Charles Stepney! Harris plugs in right from the start – blowing an electric sax that comes up with some groovy groovy sounds – perfect for Stepney to work with on the backdrops – mixing together funky orchestrations, off-kilter strings, and even some prepared piano, ala John Cage – similar to the mode he used with Ramsey Lewis at Cadet! Tunes are wonderful – offbeat, funky, and plenty darn soulful – and titles include "Live Right Now", "It's Crazy", "Winter Meeting", and "Theme In Search Of A TV Commercial". CD

Hollyridge Strings/Stu PhillipsChristmas Favorites ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Sealed ... $7.99
Groovy Christmas instrumentals from the great Stu Phillips – one of the most sublime sessions recorded by his studio group at Capitol Records in the 60s – and that's saying a lot, given that they also took on music by The Beatles and Beach Boys! Stu brings a subtle sort of groove to his strings here – mixing the full orchestrations with a well-punctuated sense of rhythm – usually using electric bass right at the bottom of the mix, which steps things along nicely – and also plucking the strings in cool ways too, which creates sort of a link between earlier Mancini moments and later grooves from The Soulful Strings! The tunes are mostly familiar, but re-strung beautifully by Stu – and titles include "Do You Hear What I Hear", "Little Saint Nick", "Jingle Bell Rock", "Santa's Got A Brand New Bag", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", "The Christmas Song", and "Winter Wonderland".

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".
