Mark Charig, Keith Tippett, & Ann WinterPipedream ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1977. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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 ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Hard grooving late 60s blues rock from the great Johnny Winter! Winter's guitar sounds as great here as it does in some of his better known records.

✨✧ Paul WinterJazz Meets The Bossa Nova (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1962. Used ... 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". CD

Uri Caine's BedrockPlastic Temptation ... CD
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".

✨✧ VariousTwelve Inch Eighties – Rhythm Is Gonna Get You (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Pop, soul, and a whole lot more – all presented here in a set of 12" single mixes that really rocked the dancefloor back in the eighties! Apart from the underground scenes of hip hop and house, the decade also had a great moment where lots of styles criss-crossed in the clubs – and found a way to resonate together, thanks to the mixing power of the 12" single – a format that was arguably at its height during the 80s! This set hearkens back to those glory days – and presents a set of 30 tracks that include "Wishing (ext)" by Flock Of Seagulls, "State Of Shock (dance mix)" by The Jacksons, "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You (special 12" dance mix)" by Miami Sound Machine, "Stop To Love (12" mix)" by Luther Vandross, "Hitmix (official bootleg megamix)" by Alexander O'Neal, "Freeway Of Love (rock mix)" by Aretha Franklin, "Cuddly Toy (ext mix)" by Roachford, "Out Of Touch (club mix)" by Hall & Oates, "Hazy Shade Of Winter (purple haze clean mix)" by The Bangles, "She Bop (special dance mix)" by Cyndi Lauper, "See Those Eyes (dance mix)" by Altered Images, "Life In Tokyo (12" ext)" by Japan, "We Are Detectives" by Thompson Twins, "Fight For Ourselves (ext rmx)" by Spandau Ballet, "Hey Manhattan (JFK rmx)" by Prefab Sprout, "Go Wild In The Country (12" mix)" by Bow Wow Wow, "Eye Of The Tiger (special ext European version)" by Survivor, and "Medicine Show (ext rmx)" by Spandau Ballet.

Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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".

George BensonBad Benson ... LP
CTI, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy backings. Highlights include "No Sooner Said Than Done", which has some very weird processing on the guitar; "Full Compass", which has some nice hard drums; and "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams", a mellow moody track.

✨✧ Sallie BlairHello Tiger! (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1959. Used ... $29.99
Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".

✨✧ 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.

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".

Leonard CohenSongs Of Leonard Cohen ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Leonard Cohen's debut for Columbia, one of the most astounding first albums of its era, and to this day a towering achievement in both songwriting and myth making! The production is that perfectly haunting mix of sparseness and grandeur, with Cohen's lyricism piercing and penetrating wonderfully – his voice never sounded better, and this is certainly one of the great "lightening in a bottle" efforts that was hard to top by Cohen or anyone else in the more poetic upper levels of pop music. Includes ""Suzanne", "Master Song", "Winter Lady", "The Stranger Song", "Sisters Of Mercy", "So Long, Marianne", "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye", "Stories Of The Street", "Teachers" and "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong".

Earth OperaGreat American Eagle Tragedy ... LP
Elektra, 1969. Very Good- ... $7.99
Excellent work by a near-forgotten act that blossomed briefly at the end of the 60s folk-rock boom – the incredible Earth Opera, a group that tied together many styles into a rich and unique sound! The album came out of the crumbling Boston scene of the late 60s – showing echoes of that city's optimistic folk scene of the earlier part of the decade, sliding into the more introspective musings of the singer/songwriter era. The group was the brainchild of singer/guitarist Peter Rowan, but also featured quite a bit of support from a young David Grisman – playing here on mandolin, piano, and a bit of alto sax. The tracks are folksy, but with lots of jazzy undercurrents – almost in a Tim Buckley mode at times, but with themes that are farther reaching, and often more political. The album's an obvious testament to the downfall of the US – surprisingly resonant in recent years – and features titles that include "Roast Beef Love", "The American Eagle Tragedy", "Home To You", "Alfie Finney", and "All Winter Long".

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

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". A nice nice 2-fer, with a dozen cuts in all! CD

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

ABC/Elemental (Spain), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $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".

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".

KhalidAmerican Teen ... CD
Right Hand/RCA, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic debut from Khalid – a singer we're expecting will shape the sound of American soul in years to come – thanks to the strength of the work on this album! Khalid's got a voice that's totally unique – upfront about his weaknesses and youth, which he never tries to hide with any sort of overdone cliches or posturing – in ways that bring a whole new sort of honesty to mainstream soul! The presentation of the tunes is nicely fresh, too – sometimes quite lean, but not in a way to evoke any sort of "fake" soul – as can sometimes be the case – and instead just open to the organic flow of the words of the singer, which are even more powerful in the subtlety of the setting. Titles include "Young Dumb & Broke", "Another Sad Love Song", "Coaster", "8Teen", "Cold Blooded", "Therapy", "Winter", "Location", and "American Teen". CD
