Kaidi TathamIn My Life EP ... LP
2000 Black (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Blinding sounds from Kaidi Tatham – an artist who's really continued the best spirit of the 4Hero sound with records like this! The set's only got four tracks, but you'll hardly miss anything at all – as Tatham packs so much into such a small space – changing up the rhythms in this amazing way, while also creating explosively soulful keyboard moments amidst the moodier basslines! Nadine Charles sings a bit on the record, but the instrumental spaces speak volumes themselves – and titles include "Freddie Can't Run Away", "But You Bring It Up", "Is Crimbo Really Here", and "In My Life".

2000 Black (UK), 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Blacks & Blues – a fantastic trio that features skittish rhythms from Kaidi Tatham and Dego, topped with great vocals from female singer Obenewa! "Spin" is a pulsating groover that's got a deeper vibe than the clubs – and "Don't Know Why" really has Obenewa sounding great – inflecting the lyrics in this really nice way. "You Know The Feeling" has more of a 4Hero groove – with the keys pulsating right alongside with the vocals over snapping, crackling beats! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dexter GordonLive At The Playboy Jazz Festival (2018 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Rhino, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare snapshot of Dexter Gordon leading an incredible group the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl in 1982 – with Woody Shaw, Milt Jackson, Kirk Lightsey, David Eubanks, Eddie Gladden – which has for the most part languished unreleased since then! The heart of it is the great couple of numbers with Milt Jackson on vibes, which for contractual reasons couldn't be released commercially for many years, so only a couple of these numbers were previously release have seen light of day – and edited versions at that – so we're really happy to see this for historical reason, but even setting the significance aside, it's a wonderful set by jazz legends. Includes "You've Changed", "The Blues", "Bag's Groove" and "Fried Bananas". LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks include the Premier-produced "Bep Empire" (is it just us, or are most of the NuHoppers nearly always at their best when they rely on tried and true hip hop production?), "Weekends", "Get Original", "Cali To New York" featuring De La Soul, "On My Own" featuring Les Nubian & Mos Def, "Release", "Bridging The Gaps", "Go Go", "Rap Song" featuring Wyclef, "Bringing It Back", "Tell Your Mama Come", the great single "Request Line" featuring Macy Gray, and more.

✨✧ Piero PiccioniCamille 2000 ... LP
Blind Faith (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The mix of instruments here is completely sublime – with some especially wonderful use of Hammond, but with very offbeat sounds – next to flute, warmer woodwinds, and some wicked basslines that hit the hippest sort of funk soundtrack modes. The recording quality is amazing, too – with unusual isolation and shading used on the instruments, to further make the sound magic – and titles include "Funky Lovers", "Pearls", "Slow Flute Beat", "Charms", "Brasil 2000", "Tears In Brasil", "Camille 2000", and "Tears In Rome". One of our all-time favorites – and with some bonus alternate takes! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMetti Una Bossa A Cena ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2000. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
A fantastic collection of rare bossa material from Italy! The set's one of the best we've ever seen of this type, and it's a completely fresh batch of tunes that breaks past a lot of the other Italian compilations of recent years. Some of the artists are familiar names – like Morricone, Piccioni, and Trovajoli – but there's plenty of other artists that we've never even heard before! A few themes are reworkings of familiar soundtrack tunes, but most of the material is original – and done with a sparkling sound that's really great! The grooves are filled with loads of tight drums, bubbling organ, jangly piano, and sweet female vocals in sort of a Morricone-ish tradition. Great stuff, and with 20 excellent tracks that include "Amori Finiti" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Relief" by The Black Fire, "Rossana" by Armando Trovajoli, "Sometime" by A Santisteban, "Tema Di Linda" by Franco Micalizzi, "Curriculum" by Franco Chiari, "Coronado 990" by Orchestra Henry Stone, "Meditation" by Romano Mussolini, and "Warm Blood" by Tullio Gallo.

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLive In Paris ... CD
BYG/Fuel 2000, 1969. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal work from the Art Ensemble of Chicago – recorded during their most creative period ever! The album was recorded live in October of 1969 – at a time when the group had pulled up roots and moved to France for a few years, bursting on the European scene with unique creativity that was not getting the recognition it deserved in their hometown of Chicago. The studio sets from this time are already the stuff of legend, and have thankfully made it back on reissue heavily the past few years – and this brilliant live set stands perfectly next to them – matching any of the LPs in the Great Black Music series on BYG/Actuel for sheer creative brilliance and soulful energy! Fontella Bass joins the group for a bit of vocals, and the 2CD set features 2 long tracks – "Bon Voyage" and "Oh Strange". CD

Leave it to De La to actually package their clean promo album in a cool way, with tracks spread out on 3 DJ friendly 12"s of this excellent later LP. All hits and almost no misses – starting with "Oooh", easily the best single of the '00, featuring some nice quotes from classic hip hop tracks ranging from the Funky 4 + 1 to Mos Def, and some of Redman's best verses in a while. De La Soul basically started the whole skits-between-songs concept, or at least they perfected it, and (unlike too many other artists) here they get it right again – even the three hilarious "Ghostweed" skits featuring cameo appearances from Pharoahe Monch, Q-Tip, and Black Thought hold up to repeated listenings. Also includes "My Writes", "Thru Ya City", "All Good?", "Words FromThe Chief Rocker" and the "Art Of Getting Jumped" – 16 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album

Burnt Sugar ArkestraTwentieth Anniversary Mixtapes – Groiddest Shizznits Vol 3 ... CD
Avantgroidd, 2000s/2010s. New Copy ... $12.99
A fantastic 20th anniversary celebration of Burnt Sugar – one of the most righteous, forward-thinking ensembles of the past few decades – some of the first proponents of a 21st Century sound that now seems to be flowing from many other corners! Yet these guys are still unlike anyone else we can think of – maybe a jazz ensemble at the core, but one that's keenly aware of soul, funk, and hip hop – and not afraid to allow any of those elements equal play in their music – almost as if Duke Ellington grew up in the 90s, listening to electric Miles Davis, Tribe Called Quest, and Curtis Mayfield – then found a way to expand larger musical ideas based on influences that diverse. Greg Tate founded the group, and directs with bassist Jared Michael Nickerson – and this series of three CDs is dedicated to bringing back some of the group's best work, much of which has gone out of print in recent years. Guests on this third volume include Vijay Iyer, Matana Roberts, Anti-Pop Consortium, Jeremiah Abia, and others – and titles include "God Is Black", "Black Fros Black Gold", "Young Frankenstank", "Sleep Is The Cousin Of Def", "Mack Jarrett", "Chains & Water", "The Name Is Blunt Sonny Blount", "Spartacus Free The Slaves", and "A Blood Sample From Erroll Garner".

Janko NilovicSoul Impressions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
One of the funkiest records ever cut by studio jazz genius Janko Nilovic! This set definitely earns the "soul" in the title – as Janko blends his usual mad mix of studio sounds with some heavier 70s elements – including a fair bit of fuzzy guitar, funky beats, and some nice horn fills. About half the tracks on the album benefit from this sort of approach – kind of a cross between blacksploitation soundtrack scoring and the tighter instrumental moods of work by The Duke of Burlington. The other half is more in Janko's usual bag – nicely groovy jazz numbers, some with a slinky 70s edge! Titles include "Hippocampus", "Open Country", "Crazy Enterprise", "Drug Song", "Soul Impressions", "Man Of Genius", "Push Push", and "Family Tree". LP, Vinyl record album

Wide Hive, 2000s/2010s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
An incredible late-life chapter from trombonist Phil Ranelin – a musician who first flourished on the Detroit scene of the 70s, as part of the Tribe Records underground in that city – and one who dropped off the radar of most folks until a huge revival in the past two decades, spurred on by new interest in his classic recordings! Ranelin got a chance to work elsewhere during this stretch, but his greatest champions may well have been the Wide Hive label – who not only gave Phil new access to the studio, and exposure to a much wider audience than before – but also allowed him to create in some of the larger ensemble modes that were always his strongest suit! The music here is pulled from Ranelin's albums for Wide Hive, but also includes a few new tracks too – and musicians include Pharoah Sanders on tenor, Zane Musa on alto and tenor, Kamasi Washington on tenor, Roger Glenn on vibes, Danny Grissett on piano, Nate Morgan on piano, Henry Franklin on bass, Calvin Keys on guitar, Big Black on congas, and Donald Bailey on drums. Titles include "Living A New Day", "Blue Bossa", "Moorish", "In Search Of The One", "This One's For Trane", "Freddie's Groove", "Full Moon", "Spiritual Vibrations", "How Do We End All This Madness", "Fantasy Vibrations", "Black On The Nu", "A Tear In Elmina", "Close Encounters", "Shades Of Dolphy", and "Perseverance 2019".

Hip hop mastery from mid school maestro DJ Jazzy Jeff – and the 3rd set in the expansive Hip Hop Forever series of golden age hip hop mixes! Jazz is one of those cats, like Biz Markie, who had a shiny moment in the mainstream sun – but is best known to true hip hop heads for a long standing approach to classic, timeless material when he hits the DJ booth. HHF3 has a couple dozen classic jams – mostly from the 90s golden age and featuring a couple cuts from the bedrock 80s and 00s underground. Includes some of the best tracks by Black Moon, Large Pro, Pharcyde, Slum Village, Big L, Saukrates feat Common, Tribe Called Quest and more – plus some later material by Little Brother & Jay Dee, and more! 26 cuts mixed with a master's touch to include the heart & soul of the cuts: includes "Tear S**t Up" by Biz Markie fest DJ Jazzy Jeff, "Passing Me By" by Pharcyde, "Whatever You Say" by Little Brother, "Top Ten List" by Masta Ace Incorporated, "Ebonics" by Big L, "Play Dis (Clean)" by Saukrates, "Eric B Is President" by Eric B & Rakim., "Full Clip" by Gang Starr, "Who Got The Props" by Black Moon", "Them That's Not' By J-Live and much more!

✨✧ Don CherryMu First Part/Mu Second Part ... CD
BYG/Fuel 2000, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Don Cherry really breaks out here on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and wooden flute – plus a bit of percussion too – alongside drummer Ed Blackwell, who's equally unbridled – showing a huge evolution since the time both he and Don spent in the group of Ornette Coleman! There's a few echoes of the global elements that Cherry would later embrace more strongly in the 70s – but the core energy here is mostly improvised jazz, handled at a level that really makes a lot better use of the freedom than some of Don's contemporaries. Titles include "Total Vibration", "Sun Of The East", "Brilliant Action", "Terrestrial Beings", "Bamboo Night", "The Mysticism Of My Sound", "Psycho Drama", "Smiling Faces Going Places", "Teo Teo Can", and "Dollar Brand/Spontaneous Composing/Exert Man On The Moon".

Blue Note/Universal (Germany), 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
Five full Blue Note albums from singer Cassandra Wilson – all packaged here in tiny LP-styled sleeves! First up is Blue Light Til Dawn – a beautiful early album from Cassandra Wilson – a singer who already had a really deep sound, right at the start – and definitely hit her stride with music like this! The album mixes jazzy currents with rootsier elements – some of them from a more global perspective – and the production is nicely understated, so that Wilson's strongly in the lead throughout. Titles include "Sankofa", "Black Crow", "I Can't Stand The Rain", "Children In The Night", "Hellhound On My Tail", "Come On In My Kitchen", and "Tell Me You'll Wait For Me". New Moon Daughter is a pivotal set from Cassanda Wilson – and a record that firmly established her as one of the freshest new singers in jazz at the time! The album's awash in rootsy, dusky tones – and has an earthiness that's clearly inspired by older blues, but expressed by Cassandra in voicings that are more clearly jazz-based. Titles include an unusual range of covers – used in this way many years before the Starbucks generation of vocalists made it common place – with covers that include "Last Train To Clarksville", "Harvest Moon", "Skylark", and "Love Is Blindness" – alongside originals that include "Until", "A Little Warm Death", "Find Him", "Solomon Song", and "Memphis". Traveling Miles is Cassandra Wilson's tribute to Miles Davis – a pretty brave and ambitious move, writing lyrics to classic Miles compositions – and a winning one! Wilson produced the record, too, and her genuine love of the material makes it worthy – as does her fairly earthy, timeless production. Made in the late 90s, and it honestly hasn't aged a day. Very impressive! It's a Miles-centric set, but there's a couple non-Miles numbers too, and the titles include "Run The Voodoo Down", "Traveling Miles", "Time After Time", "When The Sun Goes Down", "Someday My Prince Will Come", "Resurrection Blues (Tutu)", "Piper", "Prancing", "Right Here, Right Now" and more. Belly Of The Sun is an almost rootsy effort from Cassandra Wilson – recorded with small combo backing, and still handled in the sweetly swinging style of her other Blue Note work – but also with some folksy touches that create a more intimate feel on the record than you might think. Of course, part of the reason for that is that a few of the tunes on the set are classic blues numbers – handled by Wilson in an updated style that has kind of a fake authentic quality to it. We still prefer her on the smoother jazzier sides of the set – like the album's great remake of Jobim's "Waters Of March", or the mellow tune "Only A Dream In Rio". Other tracks include "Road So Clear", "Hot Tamales", "Show Me A Love", 'Drunk A Cooter Brown", "Wichita Lineman", "The Weight", and "Justice". On Glamoured, Cassandra Wilson's sounding as soulful as ever – with none of the fluff that you might think from an album called "Glamoured"! The sound is mellow and laidback, with a group that includes Wilson on guitar, alongside a few other guitarists, percussion, and even a bit of harmonica. The instrumentation gives the album a warm and earthy feel that works well with Wilson's vocals, and titles include "Heaven Knows", "I Want More", "Sleight Of Time", "If Loving You Is Wrong", "Fragile", and "What Is It".

Stunning work from one of the greatest players of the post-Coltrane generation – a classic session recorded overseas in the mid 70s, and one that's filled with soulful expressions from the great Billy Harper! Harper's tenor kicks off the set with an immediately gripping sound – as searing as Pharoah Sanders at his Impulse best – but driven on by searching, soaring modal rhythms that are all Billy's own – the kind of grooves he first forged with Max Roach, then really expanded on when given the freedom of a record like this. Other players include trumpeter Virgil Jones, pianist Joe Bonner, bassist David Friesen, and drummer Malcom Pinson – and titles include a killer take on "Croquet Ballet", which Harper originally recorded with Lee Morgan – plus the titles "Dance Eternal Spirits Dance" and "Call Of The Wild & Peaceful Heart".

Maybe as a way of making up for saying "I don't neeeed Zapp, I don't neeeed Roger Troutman," on a record a few years back, Roger is featured on "Master of the Game", complete with the classic Zapp vocoder effects. Overall, the sound is similar to the Dr. Dooom LP, with maybe a few more futuristic verses and less emphasis on how everyone else is biting his style. Tracks include "Rockets On The Battlefield", "Livin Astro", "Supergalactic Lover", "I'm Seein Robots", "Static", "Black Elvis", "Maxi Curls", "Keith Turbo", "Fine Girls", "The Girls Don't Like The Job", "Clifton", "All The Time", and "I Don't Play" CD

Chico FreemanPied Piper ... LP
Blackhawk, 1984. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A surprisingly great little set from Chico Freeman – and a record that seems to hone his best creative energies of the loft jazz years into an even hipper groove! The group here features Freeman on a wide variety of reeds – alongside John Purcell on saxes and oboe, Kenny Kirkland on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – all in a sound that's wonderfully focused, and in a way that almost has Chico sounding a lot more deeply expressive than in earlier years. To us, Freeman's always been one of those players who sounds better on the inside than the out – and this album has him nicely restrained, and really working on the best side of his craft. Titles include "Blues On The Bottom", "The Rose Tattoo", "Pied Piper", "Monk 2000", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", and "Amor Sona Dor". LP, Vinyl record album

Nessa, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
The headier side of the great Roscoe Mitchell – a project that has some of the reedman's compositions transcribed for larger orchestra performance – but at a level that seems to be a natural evolution of the notion of "black classical music" that Mitchell first helped pioneer with the AACM! Make no mistake with that term – this isn't classical music at all – instead, the larger group works here to realize this beautiful balance between improvisation and composition, almost working as a whole to embody the ideas that Mitchell has brought to his music in much smaller settings, carved out of a large group of woodwinds, a touch of brass, and a bit of strings. Gregory Oh conducts the group, and titles include "They Rode For Them", "Splatter", "Nonaah", "Shards & Lemons", and "Ride The Wind". CD

Black Saint (Italy), 1975. Used ... $16.99
A great little set from Archie Shepp – one of his strongest of the 70s, and a real return to the kind of spiritual jamming he was doing at the end of his time with Impulse Records! The album's well-known for it's great track "Song For Mozambique" – a spare and righteous number that features Bunny Fox singing in a sweet spiritual mode, while Charles Greenlee and Shepp recite chants over the jamming grooves of the band. Fox also sings on the mellow and soulful "I Know Bout The Life", and the Shepp group picks up a straight but hard mode on Cal Massey's great track "Lookin For Someone To Love". The extended jammer "Hipnosis" takes up all of side one – and it's a great little groover that builds nicely with a comping rhythm, yet which gives the band some nice room to solo in an exploratory fashion. The cut's written by Grachan Moncur III, and has Charles Greenlee blowing trombone in Grachan's place! CD

Ahhh . . . What a treat! Peace Of Mind is the debut ep of Julie Dexter – a wonderful soul singer who we guarantee will be huge! Julie's got a sweet jazzy style that mixes together classic elements of 70s soul with tight modern instrumentation on electric piano and bass – in a warm blend that reminds us a bit of Eryka Badu, but with more of a soul jazz touch. Julie's vocals are wonderful, and the way they mix with the keyboards and rhythms is extremely infectious – leaving us wanting more, and begging for the quick release of her full LP! Titles include "Ketch A Vibe", "Burning", "Peace Of Mind", and "What Do I Do". CD
