FlashbackIssue 6 – Winter 2014 ... Magazine
Flashback (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $20.99
Flashback blows us away once again – with a super-deep level of presentation that almost makes the whole magazine more like a book than anything else! This issue is well over 200 pages, filled with color images, and hardly any ads at all – which leaves lots of space for long features on Sam Gopal, Aardvark, and The David – plus deep interviews with Bill Fay, Jimmy Page, Margo Guryan, and James Williamson of The Stooges! There's also a big feature on world classics that would appeal to any fan of psych – including albums by Blo, Traffic Sound, Witch, Ananda Shankar, and others – as well as a big feature on the Teen Set magazine of the 60s, a reprinting of the Spinal Tap press kit, and lots and lots of record reviews!

Dizzy GillespieWinter In Lisbon ... CD
Milan, 1990. Used ... $4.99
A late performance from Dizzy Gillespie, but a great one too – and just the kind of record that shows he was always a constantly creative player! At a point when many others would have been content to just lay back and rehash the same old lines, Dizzy clocked out a masterpiece like this – music originally recorded (but not used) for a film, put together in a wonderfully sophisticated jazz soundtrack mode! There's an evocative quality to the record that takes us back to older European jazz film scores of the 50s and 60s – and the instrumentation mixes small group performances with some augmented string passages too. Other players include Danilo Perez on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Grady Tate on drums – and titles include "San Sebastian", "Magic Summer", "Isthmus", "Lisbon", "Burma", and "Bill's Song". CD

David Le WinterEvening At The Pump Room ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
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

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

Ariel S WinterTwenty Year Death (Malniveau Prison/The Falling Star/Police At The Funeral) ... Book
Hard Case Crime (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $4.99 14.95
A wonderful debut novel from crime writer Ariel Winter – one that's actually written as three separate books – each set a decade apart, but tied together overall! The scope of time and space rivals that of James Ellroy, but with a much more down to earth approach – as the books move between France in 1931, Hollywood in 1941, and Maryland in 1951! This massive volume brings all three books together (Hard Case originally issued them singly) – Malniveau Prison, The Falling Star, and Police At The Funeral – in a heavy volume that's over 600 pages, but will have you turning the pages at rapid speed.

Johnny WinterGangster Of Love – The Early Years ... CD
Airline, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 18.99
The earliest work of Johnny Winter – and music that's a real revelation if you only know his later hits! Winter is best known as a blues rocker of big fame at Columbia Records, but he worked hard in the southern underground for years before hitting the big time – in a raw mix of blues, soul, and R&B that has all the best rough touches of the swamp scene down in Louisiana! Much of Winter's work from that time was scattered on small indie singles, but almost all of it was sneakily culled together over the years by Huey P Meux – whose less-than-forthright efforts may well be the reason all this music is presented together hear. The 36 track set is a stunner throughout – gritty and powerful, and more soul than rock – on titles that include "Voodoo Twist", "Five After Four AM", "Stay By My Side", "Ice Cube", "Geisha Rock", "Out Of Sight", "Bad News", "Hello My Lover", "Tramp", "Parchman Farm", "Leave My Woman Alone", "Crazy Baby", "Eternally", and "Reeling & Rocking".

Paul WinterJazz Meets The Folk Song ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good- ... $2.99
A record that sounds like it's got a hokey title – but one that actually has Winter working with players that include Cecil McBee, Freddie Waits, Samb Brown, and Jeremy Steig. The "folk" in the songs is hardly of the Dylan type – as Winter uses jazz to explore a host of cultural styles, from South American to Jamaican to Brazilian to European, working together with a group that includes flute, guitar, trumpet, and some really complicated rhythmic progressions. Waits and McBee really make the set groove – and the album's filled with great tracks that include "Blue Mountain", "Gotta Travel On", "Greenwood Side", "Aruanda", "Repeat", and "The Legend Of Lord Thomas".

✨✧ Mark Charig, Keith Tippett, & Ann WinterPipedream (with bonus track) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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 MotianPaul Motian On Broadway Vol 1 ... CD
JMT/Winter & Winter (Germany), 1989. Used ... $9.99
Brilliant quartet material from drummer Paul Motian and masterful supporting players – Joe Lovano on sax, Bill Frisell on guitar and Charlie Haden on bass – recorded in NYC in November of 1988. It's a pretty remarkable example of the kind of creative things jazz figures can do with time-honored standards – eking heretofore unheard beauty out of oft-covered ballads by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and others – while still wholly respecting what makes these numbers so vital in the first place. Wonderful stuff! Includes takes on "Liza", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "I Concentrate On You", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "So In Love" and more. 9 tracks in all. CD
(This 2010 version comes nicely packaged in a textured cardboard sleeve with a paste-on cover photo.)

✨✧ AvalanchesSki Surfin' ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Not a surf record, but a ski record – one recorded in a style that's very much in the best surf instrumental mode of the time – with guitars from Tommy Tedesco and Billy Strange, plus super-tight drums from the legendary Hal Blaine! Given the power of the group in the studio, the sound is plenty darn great – tightly focused and very well recorded at Gold Star Studios – with a sound that's arguably even better than most of the other straight surf groups on the market at the time. A few tracks are surf-styled versions of "winter" tunes – like "Canadian Sunset", "Sleigh Ride", "Baby It's Cold Outside", and "Winter Wonderland" – and others are originals, or familiar covers redone. Additional titles include "Avalanche", "Ski Surfin", "Winter Evening Nocturne", and "Midnight Sun". CD

Robbie BashoTwilight Peaks ... CD
Smeraldina Rima (Belgium), 1984. New Copy ... $19.99
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". CD

Hamilton BohannonBrunswick Complete Singles Collection ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99
Killer cuts from the legendary Hamilton Bohannon – an artist who first broke big on the Brunswick label with a really unique approach to a groove! Bohannon's cuts were always funky, but never straight funk – and instead, he had this minimalist way of layering together elements that was definitely a huge influence on later disco and club – but heard here in a style that's much more raw and down to earth! The package offers up 23 tracks that come from 45s that Bohannon did for the Brunswick label – some of which have different mixes, and all of which are razor-sharp groovers that are sure to please any fan of funk. Titles include "Run It On Down Mr DJ (parts 1 & 2)", "Come Winter", "Happy Feeling", "Gittin Off", "Have A Good Day", "Bohannon's Beat", "East Coast Groove", "The Fat Man", "Red Bone", "Truck Stop", "Stop & Go", "Save Their Souls", and "The Pimp Walk".

Jay BolotinJay Bolotin ... LP
Commonwealth United, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
Rural accented, haunting and wonderful folk material from Jay Bolotin – a Kentucky bred songwriter and singer who made an impact on some powerful artists in Nashville, and in the country and folk landscape in general, but never really got his due for his own work – including this wholly excellent self-titled set recorded in 1970! There's a haunting, but graceful lilt to his singing and songwriting that reminds us of Leonard Cohen, but with a resonant southern warmth that's all his own, and it's little wonder to us that he was championed by keen eared artists such as Kris Kristofferson. The arrangements are fantastic, but unfussy, with just voice and guitar when that's all that's called for, electric bass, keys and drums when the mood needs it heavier, plus uncommon and completely effective elements like some harpsichord, celeste and other percussion. Players include guitarist David Mowry, bass player Ken Lyon, Mark Taber on piano & harpsichord, and Bobby Mason of The Fugs on drums & percussion. Titles include "Dear Father", "Jimmy's Got A Music Box", "It's All In That", "Pretty Burmah", "Trinketman", "You Are A Woman", "For Kristy", "Winter Woman" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGsAnd Now/In The Christmas Spirit (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax/Edsel (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99
Two classic albums from this great Memphis group – with bonus tracks as well! First up is And Now Booker T & The MGs – a great little album recorded in the post Green Onions years, at a time when the group was really coming together – with a tightness that perfectly illustrates their sublime Memphis instrumental groove! The album's heavy on guitar and organ, as you'd expect – that great Booker/Steve Cropper sound that can't be denied – and there's a rawness here that you don't get as much in later years – more of a funky 45 vibe that really keeps things fresh! Titles include a few nice originals – like "Soul Jam" and "My Sweet Potato" – but ever the covers sound pretty darn great, with a lot more imagination than the usual instrumental filler. As proof, there's a killer version of "Summertime", with a nice modal groove, plus nice takes on "Think" and "Working In A Coal Mine". In The Christmas Spirit is a seasonal classic from the legendary Stax Records – a set of all instrumental Holiday tunes, played by Booker T & The MGs! The album was recorded at the height of the group's early fame – and features a simple, straightforward groove that features plenty of Hammond from Booker T – plus tight grooves from Steve Cropper on guitar, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Al Jackson on drums – all of whom cook up some Memphis soul instrumental takes on seasonal favorites – in a mode that easily makes the record one of the hippest Christmas sides from the time! The whole thing's great – almost like a lost Booker T album overall – and titles include "Blue Christmas", "We Three Kings", "Winter Wonderland", "Silver Bells", and "Merry Christmas Baby". Also features 4 bonus tracks – "Booker Loo", "Red Beans & Rice", "Boot Leg", and "Be My Lady". CD

Booker T & The MGsHip Hug Her/Doin Our Thing (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax/Edsel (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $18.99
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

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

David ByrneMusic For The Knee Plays ... LP
ECM, 1985. Sealed ... $9.99
One of several solo David Byrne albums from around the time the Talking Heads were getting ready to call it quits. This set differs a bit more than the Catherine Wheel even though both are music for theater/dance/performance pieces, with this suite of music being inspired by New Orleans brass bands, though you might not otherwise make that connection if it weren't explicitly laid out in the notes. The group is a large one, primarily made up of horns, but with Paul Humphrey and Bobbye Hall on drums and percussion, and feature some real ringers in the brass section, including Don Myrick, Ernie Watts, Pete Christlieb and Fred Wesley. Tracks include "Tree", "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. Very Good ... $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".

We know very little about Crystal Winds – save for this excellent record, one of the few titles issued on the short-lived Cash Ear label, a south-side imprint in the tradition of 70s powerhouse labels like Curtom or Chi-Sound. The work's got a wonderfully polished feel – lots of jazzy harmonies on the vocals, and a smooth midtempo groove that reminds us of some of the best work on Fantasy Records, especially those handled by Wayne Henderson and At Home Productions. Includes a great jazzy stepper called "Signs of Winter's Time", plus other great tracks like "So Sad", "Love Ain't Easy", and "It's A Wondrous Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a small crease on the spine.)

(Cover has a sticker spot & some light wear.)

Express RisingExpress Rising (2nd album) ... CD
Numero, 2013. Used ... $7.99
A warm batch of instrumental beats and atmospherics from Express Rising – and a much-anticipated second project from funk archivist Dante Carfagna! Dante's a name you probably know best from his work writing liner notes or Wax Poetics – and helping out in countless important compilations over the years – but a decade ago, Dante dropped his first mysterious project under the Express Rising name – and finally returns here with a second album! The sound is even more enticing this time around – still drawing a bit from the world of DJ Shadow – a frequent Carfagna collaborator on archive projects – but the sound is also surprisingly warm and lyrical too – bits of beats, layers of older sounds, and these spare keyboard bits all served up together in a style that's really unique – and which avoids any of the cliches of both the downtempo world, and the instrumental hip hop scene The approach is often quite poetic, yet still soulful as well – and the whole thing's got a laidback vibe that's neither sleepy nor muddled – a really sort of special space between the grooves. Titles include "Horse Opera", "Dark Early", "Answering Echo So Near", "Winter The Heart", "A Treasure Smile", "Rooms Between Us", and "Memorabilia". CD

FrameFrame Of Mind ... LP
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
(Limited to 500 copies!)

Stan Getz & Laurindo AlmeidaStan Getz With Laurindo Almeida ... LP
Verve, 1963. Good Gatefold ... $4.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Francoise HardyMidnight Blues – Paris/London 1968 to 1972 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99
Rare English language recordings from the sublime Francoise Hardy – music that's every bit as wonderful as her famous French recordings – and even more compelling to our Anglo-styled ears! The vocals are wonderful – sung with this sense of darkness that's almost got an echo of Nico at points, given the accent – set to backings that balance this darkness with a bit more light, but never in ways that are overly poppy – and which definitely continue that more sophisticated style that Hardy always brought to her music! There's less "yeh yeh" to the tracks than a few years before – and Francoise is definitely digging deeper music at this point in her career – sometimes with a breathy brilliance that's a bit like Jane Birkin too. Titles include "Bown Bown Bown", "Till The Morning Comes", "Loving You", "In The Sky", "Midnight Blues", "Magic Horse", "Song Of Winter", "Strange Shadows", "Ocean", "The Garden Of Jane Delawney", "Sometimes", "Let My Name Be Sorrow", "Times Passing By", "I Just Want To Be Alone", and "Suzanne".
