Mark Charig, Keith Tippett, & Ann WinterPipedream ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1977. Near Mint- ... $23.99
A really amazing little record – quite different than anything else we've ever heard from British trumpeter Mark Charig – and for good reason, too! This unique performance was improvised live in a country church – Charig exploring the space magically with his trumpet, while Keith Tippett plays away on the church's organ – making these really weird and wonderful sounds that create a similar vibe to some of the sparer improvisations you might hear from Sun Ra! The mix of organ and trumpet is amazing – and other cuts feature wordless vocal sounds from Ann Winter, which are equally haunting, but in a different way too. Titles include "Bellaphon", "Vega", "Ode To The Ghost Of An Improvised Past", "Pipedream", and "Pavanne". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny WinterByrds Can't Row Boats – The Unreleased Masters Collection 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99 27.99
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 (Japan), Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
This bossa LP on Columbia is pretty good stuff! The record was recorded with some of Brazil's best bossa players – like Luiz Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, and Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame). John Hammond produced the session, so you can be sure it's got the kind of rootsy sound that will make the tracks have a bit more kick than if the album was in the hands of a regular pop-bossa producer. Titles include "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", and "Alem Da Imaginacao". CD

Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, & William ParkerBlue Winter ... CD
Eremite, 2005. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
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

Tommy RoeIt's Now Winter's Day ... LP
ABC, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Surprisingly wonderful work from Tommy Roe – a set that goes way farther than his 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". CD also features the bonus track "Kick Me Charlie". LP, Vinyl record album

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Winter & Winter (Germany), 2009. Used ... $10.99
Mad grooves from Uri Caine's Bedrock group – a core trio that features Caine on lots of cool keyboards, Tim Lefebvre on bass and guitar, and Zach Danzinger on drums – plus added vocals from Barbara Walker and percussion from Elizabeth Pupo-Walker! There's some really great electric elements in the set – messed-up keys that lie somewhere in a space between Herbie Hancock's Sextant and Yesterday's New Quintet – given a spare, funky sound on some of the best cuts, thanks to heavy drums at the bottom! There's loads of short, cool tracks here – and the album's one of Caine's most inventive in years – with titles that include "Duke Countdown", "Roll With It", "Noid", "Riled Up", "Mayor Goldie", "Seven Year Glitch", "Ink Bladder", and "Lemonana Vasconcelos".

Geri AllenFlying Toward The Sound ... CD
Motema, 2010. Used ... $4.99
Intimate piano work from Geri Allen – a set of solo performances, inspired by the music of Cecil Taylor, McCoy Tyner, and Herbie Hancock! There's definitely strong traces of Tyner and Hancock – given Allen's usually soulful undercurrent – but there's also a heavy dose of Taylor, too, as Geri really uses the freer space of the recording to stretch out in some pretty unbridled ways – really surprising us with her inventiveness, and still usually holding onto a rhythmic pulse somewhere deep in the mix. Titles include "Red Velvet In Winter", "Dancing Mystic Poets At Midnight", "Your Pure Self", "Flying Toward The Sound", and "Faith Carriers Of Life". CD

Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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.

Bodast (Steve Howe)Spectral Nether Street ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
You may know Steve Howe as a key member of Yes during their glory days – but the guitarist had a rich resume of work that went back to the early 60s UK scene – including this great stint in the trio Bodast! The group was one that Howe worked with between his time with Tomorrow and Yes – and they've got a tight, stark sound that's different than either group – maybe a bit of the fuzz of Tomorrow, but almost some elements that point back towards Steve's beat years – although the guitar lines get a chance to really stretch out and do some wonderful things here. The material was recorded in 1968, and never issued at the time – and this superb vinyl pressing presents the rare original mix for the first time on vinyl – much grittier than a cleaned-up version that Howe handled in the 80s. Titles include "Black Leather Gloves", "Mr Jones", "Tired Towers", "Do You Remember", "Beyond Winter", "Nether Street", and "1000 Years". LP, Vinyl record album

Bonny Prince BillyBest Troubador ... CD
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
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. CD

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 ByrneMusic For The Knee Plays ... LP
ECM, 1985. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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".

Torun EriksenGrand White Silk ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
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

David FriesenStar Dance ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of the more compelling sessions from the left side of the Inner City jazz label of the 70s – work that's partly fusion, but with plenty of aspects that push it far from the mainstream! Leader David Friesen plays acoustic bass on the set, but he's in a group with John Stowell on electric guitar, and the mighty Steve Gadd on drums – whose propulsive approach really drives the sound of the record strongly on some of the group numbers. Reedman Paul McCandless plays oboe and English horn, both unusual choices, but instruments that work well here – with an angularity that matches soprano sax usage in fusion during the 70s, although a bit warmer at times. Tracks are somewhat short, and include some really compelling solo numbers – recorded with a wonderfully round, soulful sound. Titles include "Winter's Fall", "Duet & Dialogue", "Mountain Streams", "A Little Child's Poem", "1 Rue Brey", "Star Dance", and "Children Of The Kingdom". LP, Vinyl record album

Giacomo Gates affectionately and effectively steers the work of the toughest and most sharply unique songwriters of our time and into straight-forward jazz vocal territory – and it's works really well! The backing is done by a stripped down combo who lay down guitar, bass, drums and piano – with sax and flute on a couple. Gates' husky baritone is well suited to the material and the it's well chosen set list, which includes "Show Bizness", "Lady Day And John Coletrane", "Winter In America", "Is That Jazz", "New York City", "It's Your World", "Madison Avenue" and "Legend In His Own Mind". 10 tracks in all.

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". Very nice! CD also includes the bonus track "Corcovado" – unreleased for years! CD

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

Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
A playfully swinging set from trombonist Tyree Glenn – working here in a nicely offbeat style that also includes a bit of vocals as well! Glenn's got a great way with the muted trombone – working the end with a wah wah approach that's certainly got its roots in trad jazz, but which also comes across here with a classy swinging 50s style – thanks to strong small combo backing from Tommy Flanagan, Charlie Potter, and Jo Jones. The album should sound hokey, but it doesn't – thanks to a richly expressive style by Glenn, one that's got more than enough soul to get past the gimmicks. Titles include "Angel Eyes", "Love For Sale", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "If I Should Lose You", "I've Got The World On A String", "If Winter Comes", "Yesterdays", and "Stairway To The Stars". CD

✨✧ Eddie HarrisElectrifying Eddie Harris/Plug Me In ... CD
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

Collectables, 1968/1969/1999. Used ... $9.99
Funky electric sax madness! This nifty CD brings together two of the excellent albums that Eddie Harris recorded when he first discovered the Varitone Sax – the electric tenor that became the trademark instrument during the late 60s for funky players like Harris and Lou Donaldson. The album Plug Me In features Harris along with some fantastic arrangements by the Chicago soul genius Charles 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". The other album is a live set, and features a more stripped down lineup of Varitone tenor, piano, bass, and drums – with the group that included Harris' longtime bandmate bassist Melvin (Funky Skull) Jackson. The set's not as wild as the Stepney set, but it's got lots of great moments, including an early version of "Listen Here", plus "Movin On Out", "Funky Doo", and "The Children's Song".

HeronTwice As Nice & Half The Price (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Dawn/Wasabi (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $31.99
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

ImpressionsKeep On Pushing (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ABC/Elemental (Spain), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
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".

Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 2 – Welcome Home (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 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".

JazzholeBlackburst ... CD
Beave, 2000. Used ... $5.99
Great work by one of the best things going on the New York scene – the soulful Jazzhole, a great group with a really unique sound! There's elements of soul, jazz, and funk bubbling throughout most of the record – but the group's also got influences that span the globe, and which bring about a sound that touches on many cultural horizons – not in a cloying way, but in the kind of warmly integrated feel that you'd hear in the work of Joe Clausell or some of the best work on Spiritual Life. In fact, you could almost think of Jazzhole as kind of a soul-based alternative to the dance-oriented work of those scenes – the best parts of New York coming together in a really unified sound. Titles include "Dancing In My Head", "What Kind Of Love", "Pillow Talk", "Winter Sky", and "Hush". CD
