FlashbackIssue 4 – Winter 2013 ... Magazine
Flashback (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $18.99
Over 200 pages, with a heavy cover, full color images, and the kind of in-depth presentation that almost makes Flashback more of a book than a magazine! The cover feature looks at the fuzzy folk rock combo Trees – and other big articles include Wilkinson Tri Cycle, Mandrake Memorial, July, producer Peter Eden, and the London scene memories of Beverly Martyn – plus a deep discussion on the virtues of mono versus stereo, 50 intriguing albums in the exploitation genre, and a stunning amount of CD, LP, and book reviews!

David Le WinterEvening At The Pump Room ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
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

✨✧ LibraWinter Day's Nightmare ... LP
Motown, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The second Motown release by this group – a nice mix of jazzy soul and rock styles, handled with production and arrangements that are better than the group's first album. There's some nice smooth LA sounds on the set – and the vocals have a rough edge that's almost got a bit of a David Bowie feel on a few cuts, making for a very strange mix of styles. Titles include "Lucy Squirrel", "My First Rainbow", "This Chain", "Hey Carlito", and "Full Winter Day's Nightmare". 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 ... $11.99 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".

Uri Caine TrioSiren ... CD
Winter & Winter (Germany), 2011. Used ... $11.99
Exactly the kind of set that shows why Uri Caine is one of the most influential pianists in jazz – a player who's really set the scene on fire with records like this, thanks to a freely-flowing, highly-rhythmic approach to his music! The set bristles with energy right from the start – a joyous bounce between Caine's piano, the bass of John Hebert, and drums of Ben Perowsky – one of those trios in which every player is given equal weight, not just the pianist at the top! There's no sense of overindulgence here, and the free explorations never fall into cliche – and instead always find a way to break into new territory with a sense of eager excitement that draws us right along beautifully. Titles include "Crossbow", "Siren", "Smelly", "Calibrated Thickness", "Manual Defile", "Free Lunch", and "Hazy Crazy Lazy". CD

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.

Paul MotianPaul Motian On Broadway Vol 1 ... CD
JMT/Winter & Winter (Germany), 1989. Used ... $6.99
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 (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

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 ... $19.99
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 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

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
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 ... $6.99
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".

The rest of the group features Mose Allison on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the arrangements are all pretty darn fresh, handled by Al and Bob themselves.

Express RisingExpress Rising (2nd album) ... LP
Numero, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 18.00
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

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
(MGM pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Tyree GlennLet's Have A Ball ... LP
Roulette, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original multi color bar pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Eddie HarrisElectrifying Eddie Harris/Plug Me In ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1968. Used ... $4.99
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

✨✧ ImpressionsKeep On Pushing ... LP
ABC, 1964. Very Good ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing! Cover has light wear.)

Keith JarrettBop-Be (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1978. Used ... $14.99
No bebop here, despite what you might guess from the title – and instead an album of much freer lines and wider musical vision, captured with Keith Jarrett's famous group of the 70s! Jarrett plays a bit of soprano sax alongside his piano, and the rest of the quartet features Dewey Redman on tenor and musette, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums and percussion – all in a mode that's somewhat quieter and not as earthy as their early 70s sides together, but still filled with the great sense of interplay that made the group a noteworthy one. Titles include "Pyramids Moving", "Mushi Mushi", "Silence", "Gotta Get Some Sleep", and "Blackberry Winter". CD

Ryo KawasakiMirror Of My Mind (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Satellites/Think (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic fusion classic from guitarist Ryo Kawasaki – and a set that shows his perfect balance between American and Japanese jazz modes in the 70s! The album's got a bit more of a soulful focus than some of Kawasaki's previous work, but loses none of the depth of his feeling – as the approach here is less commercial fusion, than a cool underground blending of jazz, funk, and even a bit of Brazilian – with a quality that reminds us of some of most interesting work on the Bay Area scene of the period. Recording was done in New York – with help from fusion heavyweights that include Leon Pendarvis on keyboards, Harvey Mason on drums, and Michael Brecker on tenor – and singer Radha Shottam appears on half the record, really augmenting the soulful vibe of the set at those points. Even the mellower moments have a nice sort of richness, and a deeper spirit than usual for this sort of record – and titles include the soulful classic "Trinkets & Things" – a worldwide jazz dance classic – plus "Little One", "In & Out Of Love", "Brasiliana", and "Winter's Here".
