Mark Charig, Keith Tippett, & Ann WinterPipedream (with bonus track) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
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". Also features the previously unissued "The Trio Gets Lost In The Magic Forest". CD

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

Paul Winter & Carlos LyraSound Of Ipanema ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
The sound of Ipanema in the 60s – served up here in a great partnership between American jazzman Paul Winter, and bossa composer Carlos Lyra! The album's an excellent bossa jazz session all the way through – with alto from Winter that's some of his sharpest on record in the 60s, and both guitar and vocals from Lyra – who's getting his American time in the spotlight here, in the way that Joao Gilberto got with Stan Getz! Yet this album's much more of a core bossa jazz combo set than the Getz/Gilberto records – with work from a quintet that includes Sergio Mendes on piano, Milton Banana on drums, and Sebatiao Neto on bass. Titles include "O Morro", "Voce E Eu", "Maria Ninguem", "De Quem Ama", "Lobo Bobo", and "Tem Do De Mim". CD

Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... About October 25, 2016
One of the coolest Christmas compilations we've heard in years – an ultra-cool, ultra-rare batch of tunes all hand-picked by St Etienne – with the best sort of vibe of their previous non-seasonal compilations! The material here is mostly British in origin, and almost all of it is completely new to our ears – a fab array of 50s and 60s tunes that include vocal numbers, jazzy bits, and instrumental pop – with lots of fresh songs that aren't just the usual batch of Holiday favorites! There's two dozen songs on the set – which makes for some great extended listening – and titles include "It's Christmas" by Elaine & Derek, "Must Be Santa" by Alma Cogan, "Snowman's Land" by Zack Laurence, "Christmas Time In London Town" by Nina & Frederick, "Christmas Island" by Dickie Valentine, "Get Lost Jack Frost" by John Barry Seven, "My Christmas Prayer" by Billy Fury, "Snow Coach" by Russ Conway, "Christmas Land" by Wally Whyton, "Lonely Pup" by Adam Faith, and "We Three Kings" by Johnny Keating.

Uri CaineBedrock 3 ... CD
Winter & Winter (Germany), 2001. Used ... $1.99
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

George BensonBad Benson ... LP
CTI, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
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.

BohannonGittin Off ... LP
Dakar, 1975. Very Good ... $9.99
Tremendously tight grooves from Hamilton Bohannon – tunes that have this amazing way of wrapping together the bass, drums, and guitar – all in this fast-chugging style that's plenty funky all the way through! Bohannon was one of the most minimal of his 70s funk contemporaries – and has this way of really focusing in on one key rhythm, then rolling it out with incredible tightness – slowly changing things with some slight phase shifts in tone or timing, but always returning to the core of the tune. The approach is maybe even more striking here than on his previous records – and far grittier than on his later 70s work, too – and at some level, the vocals are almost thrown in as an afterthought, once Bo and the combo get things grooving! Titles include "Come Winter", "South Africa 76", "Feel Good At Midnight", "Gittin Off", and "I'm In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Stelvio CiprianiTentacles (Tentacoli) (transparent vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $38.99
Sublime Italian soundtrack funk – and one of the greatest albums ever from 70s maestro Stelvio Cipriani! The music was scored for a schlocky horror film about a giant octopus – but Cipriani's approach here goes far beyond its roots – beautifully blending together tightly compressed bass and funky drum bits with sweet electric keys and warm string touches – making for a set that slinks along with an infectious groove from start to finish! The sound is incredible – immediately seductive on the first track, and continuing to develop as the set moves on – making for an amazing soundtrack that we'd rank as one of our Italian favorites of the 70s. Titles include "Tentacles", "Small Town Pleasures", "She'll Never Come Back", "San Diego Yellow Cab", "Summer & Winter", and "Scotch For Two". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Dankworth's harder outings, with a great group of Brit Jazz players, including Michael Gibbs, Kenny Wheeler, and Tony Coe. It includes tight compositions that still carry Dankworth's easy feel, but which also have a bit of an atonal edge to them! Includes "Hogshead of Hogarth", "Composition with Colour", "Winter Scene", "Sailor", "Face In A Crowd", "Little Girl In Blue" and more. 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".

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".

Okka Disk, 1997. Used ... $14.99
Quartet session that brings together Swedish reed genius Mats Gustafsson with Chicago tenor giant Ken Vandermark, and adds in Chicago players Steve Hunt and Kent Kessler. Gustafsson and Vandermark are brilliant together – as testified by a recent successful tour of the U.S. this past winter – and their playing is full of life, energy, and boundless imagination. Gustufsson's a genius on an assortment of reed instruments, and the sounds he gets from them are otherworldly. Tracks include "Carry Out", "Structure A La Malle", and "Blow Horn for Service". CD

Cadence, 1964. Used ... $19.99
Mindblowing work by a really under-documented group – a mid 60s recording that definitely lives up to the free form in the name of the combo! The sound here is even bolder and more revolutionary than that of the contemporaneous "new thing" generation, or some of the European avant players of the period – really long, loose, and open passages that clearly begin without any sense of structure at all – often with the complete feeling of surprise that you'd get from some of the best 70s sessions from FMP. The group features great piano (and some piano harp) from Burton Greene – really at his boldest here – plus flutes from Jon Winter, alto sax from Gary William Friedman, bass from Alan Silva, and percussion from Clarence Walker. Titles include "Eat Eat", plus three different "Free Form Composition" tracks. CD

The set's got a whopping 4 CDs, and it features Getz working with the likes of Joao Gilberto, Luiz Bonfa, Charlie Byrd, Gary McFarland, Laurindo Almeida, Astrud Gilberto, and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Includes some unreleased versions of bossa tunes, plus a huge amount of other great stuff – like "Ebony Samba", "Baia", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba Dees Days", "Sambalero", "Eu E Voce", "Winter Moon", "Menina Moca", "Vivo Sonhando", and "Para Machuchar Meu Coracoa".

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

High LlamasCan Cladders ... LP
Drag City, 2007. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
One of warmest, breeziest, best High Llama's efforts of the the post millennium to date – with some of the catchiest songs in their canon! This one has the bellwether elements you'd expect from the Llamas – mixing lush and laidback moods as distinctly as ever, and blending retro style and instrumentation with timeless tunefulness – but something about the lyrical focus of the songs really makes this one of their more immediately engaging efforts. It's almost classic Kinks-ian in its scene-setting songcraft. Titles include The Old Spring Town", "Winter's Day", "Sailing Bells", "Dorothy Ashby" (complete with harp – possibly our favorite song on the album, naturally), "Rollin'", "Something About Paper", "Clarion Union Hall", "Cove Cutter (Hills And Fields)", "Boing Backwards" and more.

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".

Atlantic, 1986. Very Good ... $3.99
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".

Smooth, soulful, and very slinky – the 4th album by Jazzhole, and their best to date! The hip New York group have really honed their sound nicely – focusing on their rich talents as a collective, and showcasing the work of a variety of great lead vocalists. Despite the size of the group, the sound's remarkably unified – and the album comes off like a solo set by an individual, so strong is the collective vision of the work. Loads of great numbers – with keyboards dancing over gentle beats, and sweetly soulful lyrics providing the finish! Titles include "Circle Of The Sun", "Love Philosophy", "A Little Dress For Mary", "Winter's Meeting", and "Superstar". 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 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!

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Really really wonderful work from Moonchild – even better than we remember from the first time around! The group have this perfect balance of vocals and jazzy instrumentation – played by a trio who handle all the instruments themselves, then produce the whole set – in support of vocalist Amber Navran, who also plays tenor on the record! Rhythms are spare and crackling – never overdone, and just the right sort of laidback funk for Navran's wonderful vocals – sliding out in this smooth, slinky way that has plenty of jazz undercurrents, and no sort of commercial styles at all. A decade ago, these guys might have been headed towards major label stardom – but it's the indie, underground nature of the record that's going to keep them strong for years – as you'll hear on cuts that include "The Truth", "Nobody", "More Than Ever", "Winter Breeze", "Just A Minute", "Moonlight", and "I'll Make It Easy".

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".
