Captain SkyAdventures Of Captain Sky ... CD
AVI/Past Due, 1978. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A legendary funk set from late 70s Chicago – served up by our own Captain Sky, aka Daryl Cameron – an imposing figure who often worked in the same space-themed territory as the P-Funk empire in the mid 70s! The difference here, though, is that Cameron wrote, produced, and put the whole thing together himself – with help from a few friends in the studio – making the album a great homegrown attempt to rival the strength of the bigger funk ensembles of the period – something The Captain and crew do pretty darn well throughout! There's lots of heavy bass on the set – a strong precursor of modes to come – mixed with riffing guitar, sweet keyboards, and plenty of tight rhythms – on cuts that include the famous sample cut "Super Sporm" – a killer extended track with a great conga break, and a tight old school sample sound – plus "Now That I Have You", "Saturday Night Move-Ease", "Wonder Worm" and "Can't Stop Now".

Captain SkyPop Goes The Captain ... CD
AVI/Past Due, 1979. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
The second smoking album from Captain Sky – a Windy City funk legend, and one who's cut from some of the same cloth as Bootsy Collins or Rick James! Like both of those artists, the Captain's a pretty imposing figure, with a bit of future flash to his looks – and while he uses lots of the basslines that might tie him to Bootsy and the P-Funk universe, he's also got a groove that mixes in some of the more sophisticated modes you'd know from the Chicago scene at the time! There's almost a late Curtom feel to the record – tight funk, a bit faster than early in the decade, but still not really disco – and with some mellow midtempo tracks that balance things out beautifully – and really show Sky evolving past the style of his first record. Tracks include "Moonchild", "Fearless", "Cream & Sugar", "Rebirth", "Hero", "Double You SKY", and "Ker-Runch". CD

✨✧ Le PamplemousseLe Spank/Monkey See Monkey Do ... 12-inch
AVI, 1977. Very Good (pic cover)... $2.99
"Le Spank" is probably the most successful track ever by this Rinder/Lewis side project – and for good reason, too! The cut's got a cool moogy groove that pops across the top nicely, a bit sparer than the rest of its disco contemporaries, and with a catchiness that's undeniable! This 12" version is over 10 minutes long, too! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has light wear, aging, and tiny seam splits.)

Le PamplemousseSweet Magic ... LP
AVI, 1978. Very Good- ... $7.99
Moogy keyboards, disco grooves, and sweet female vocals make this a classic session from the Rinder & Lewis team – and the album's a lot better than you might think from the silly name of the group or the throwaway disco cover on the front! The keyboards really drive the album, hitting some great funky clavinet moments or sweet moogy parts that always seem to have a nice touch of jazz – spicing up the tracks in a style that you wouldn't normally get on an album of this vintage and style. Titles include "Do You Have Any?", "Slow Down",a nd the mellow jazzy space number "No Sweat". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ringwear, edge wear, and some pen imprints in front. Label on Side 1 has some pen and spots of marker.)

✨✧ Rinder & LewisSeven Deadly Sins ... LP
AVI, 1977. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful space disco classic from the years before house music – and a record that's gone on to have a huge influence on generations of dancefloors over the years! The duo of Rinder & Lewis did a number of other projects for the AVI label back in the 70s, but this one may well be their best – a really well-conceived album that layers moogy keyboards over clubby rhythms – all in service of a master concept based around the seven deadly sins – but with an instrumental approach that means the record is never preachy at all. In fact, the grooves are so great that the whole thing really seems to celebrate the sins, not condemn them – another factor that made the record a big one in the underground clubs. Titles include "Pride", "Anger", "Lust", "Sloth", "Covetousness", "Gluttony", and "Envy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Lust" and "Sloth". Cover has ring and edge wear, bent corners, a name in pen on both sides, and some stains along the spine. Labels have some pen.)

✨✧ El CocoRevolucion ... LP
AVI, 1980. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Latin inflected club grooves by the legendary El Coco – a fantastic group who often worked with the same sort of spacey elements that you'd find in work from the P&P family of labels! The group were probably the most successful to come from the team of Michal Lewis and Laurin Rinder – and although things are maybe not as jazzy or far out as some of the other Rinder & Lewis records, there's still plenty of those elements in the mix! Most tracks are nice and long, with a disco groove, and titles that include "Carry Me", "I'll Take My Chances", "Something Ya Got Makes Me Hot", and "Love Bizness". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, but looks great overall.)

"Never Let Go" is a really long groover from East Bound Expressway – stretching out for nearly 10 minutes in length, with lots of different passages that feature instrumental riffing and percussion jamming that's almost in a disco break mode! "Cloudburst" has a bit more strings and a fuller disco groove – but still comes across nicely, with some nice Prelude-styled funky guitar bits in the mix! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has minimal wear.)

A wonderful smooth soul classic from Lowrell! "Overdose" is filled with funky strings and some nice conga beats – a little bit like a club Barry White track, with some great vocals by Lowrell Simon. "Smooth & Wild" is just as great, with a long soundtrack-y intro, and some great slightly jazzy vocals that almost feel like they were lifted off a Strata East spiritual jazz session! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Simtec SimmonsSimtec ... LP
AVI, 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A solo album by one half of the legendary Simtec & Wylie team! The style is uptempo Chicago funk, with less of the soul groove than on earlier records – and more of a fast funky style, touched with some of Simtec's madness from earlier days. There's a lot of bass at the bottom of the grooves – and titles include "Never Get Tired", "Simtec Special", "Good Times", "Sexy Thang", "Furry Thang", and "Sugar Baby". This is a tough one to find! LP, Vinyl record album

AVI, 1980. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Back in the day, Chicago never had much of a rap scene – which is why it was so easy for Chicago radio DJ Casper to score big with this little groover on the AVI label! The cut's actually not bad as sort of a funky clubby track – and Casper's rapping style reminds us a lot of Gary Byrd, another DJ who was cutting similar records at the time. There's kind of a nice jangly "good times" groove going on here, and the track's not a bad little party number! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Disco Patrick & Patrick VogtDisco – An Encyclopedic Guide To The Cover Art Of Disco Records (hardcover) ... Book
Soul Jazz (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $18.99 49.95
Way way way more than just another book of album cover images – and instead, a stunningly huge volume that offers up key images from the disco generation, plus a wealth of knowledge and information too! The book really lives up to the "encyclopedic" promise of its title – as it features label-by-label chapters on key companies during the disco years – from AVI to West End, with lots of great stops in between – all in chapters that feature images of most of the best albums on the labels, plus a listing of matrix numbers in order, which is a very useful tool! The album cover pages feature as many as 16 images on a large square page, complete with catalog numbers – which means that the book features thousands of images along with the numerical content – and a special section at the end features an even bigger array of 12" picture sleeves and label covers too. There's also as scrapbook of disco advertisements, and more label paperwork – plus sections on Roller Disco, Disco Instruction Records, Disco Samplers, and disco work on some of the major labels. The hardcover book is 384 pages, oversized, and super-heavy – a true treasure for any record collector! Book

THP OrchestraTwo Hot For Love ... LP
Butterfly, Late 70s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A great little disco album – really a cut above its contemporaries, thanks to some great instrumentation overall! Side one features the extended "Two Hot For Love" title track – presented as a mini-suite of sorts with lead vocals from Barbara Fry, a singer who's really a lot more soulful than you'd expect. But even better are the keyboards by Michael Lewis – soaring out with similar spacey touches to his own AVI work, and bringing in some interesting interplay to the tune. Side two features some shorter tracks – including a great funky remake of "Manha De Carnival" with more great Lewis keyboards – plus "Crazy Crazy", "Dawn Patrol", and "Early Riser" – all longer versions than on the group's first album.

✨✧ Honey MachineHoney Machine ... LP
Grandstar/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A clubby classic from the Nigerian duo of Sega Gafatchi and Chris Ify Hanem – and a record that maybe feels a lot more like some of the coolest work from the US and Anglo scenes at the time – complete with all sorts of spacey keyboards that really give the album a distinctive sound! Most tracks are in a boogie-styled groove, and the keyboards are as much in place as the vocals – bubbling and peppering the tracks in a mighty nice way – not really the electro soul modes that was starting to show up a few years later, but more like the spaced out sound of the underground that you'd hear on labels like P&P and AVI. Titles include "Come Back To Me", "We Can Make It", "Dooby Dooby", "Free Like The Wind", "Shake Your Body", and "Pleasure". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roger Damawuzan & Les As Du BeninWait For Me ... LP
Hot Casa (France), Late 70s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Roger Damawuzan looks a bit like an American soul singer on the cover of this excellent collection – and his music often comes across in the same way, with a nice undercurrent of funk in the rhythms, and very powerful vocals from the leader! The set's the first we've ever seen to focus on Damawuzan's music – and brings forth a killer batch of tracks recorded in Togo in the late 70s and early 80s – some with a definite James Brown influence in the grooves, others more open to more familiar West African elements you might hear in some of Roger's contemporaries – but still always delivered with this lean, mean style that's mighty soulful! The Hot Casa label is one that we've really grown to trust for the funkier side of vintage African recordings, and this set is no exception – filled with great grooves that include "Wait For Me", "Do You Know My Name", "I Need A Horse", "Tirez Tirez", "Motherless Child", "Vino La Medo", and "Agbe Fe Avi".

Luis David AguilarAyahuasca – Musica Para Cine De Luis David Aguilar 1978 to 1983 ... LP
Buh (Peru), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $34.99 38.99
Three really different soundtrack selections from Peruvian composer Luis David Aguilar – each of which is heavy in familiar elements from his scene, but which also really takes things to newly sophisticated territory too! The first half of the set features the 1983 score for El Viento Del Ayahuasca – which mixes rootsy percussion with larger strings from the National Symphony of Cuba, and includes a piano solo by Chucho Valdes – but the end result is music that's very modern and mystical on its own – earthy and organic at one level, but surprisingly sophisticated too. Next is the more electronic 1979 score for Anonimo Cotidiano – which has all sorts of cool analog elements mixes with keyboards and acoustic percussion, and a bit of vocals hiding in the mix in sort of a spooky way! Last is the 1978 soundtrack for Los Constructores – the jazziest of the three, with plenty of percussion and horns – jamming in a real descarga style. LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach/Hal DavidPromises, Promises (remastered pressing) ... CD
United Artists/Ryko, 1968. Used ... $6.99 8.99
Burt Bacharach and Hal David's sole entry into the musical genre – a weird little musical that's based on the film The Apartment! The record's a lot less "Broadway" than you might think – and often handled with the same sly syncopated style of Bacharach's regular pop work – particularly that of the later A&M years. And even if you're not the sort to go for the usual sort of musical, this one's filled with some really great little tunes that stand with some of Burt's best later work – and which are almost even more interesting, given some of the themes that get explored! Musical direction is by Harold Wheeler, and Jerry Orbach's one of the key vocalists of the set! Titles include "Upstairs", "Knowing When To Leave", "She Likes Basketball", "Half As Big As Life", "Our Little Secret", "Christmas Day", "Grapes Of Roth", and "Wanting Things". And even better, this new version includes some great improvements – including remastering, a "fix" on the pitch of Jerry Orbach's vocals, and a song order that replicates their appearance in the original musical!

Parlophone, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
One of our favorite David Bowie albums ever! Aladdin Sane was a real turning point for Bowie – recorded on the heels of the tremendously popular Ziggy Stardust album, but really pushing the boundaries past the more straight-ahead rock and glam of that record. Instead of just sitting on his laurels, Bowie tripped out into a wilder, weirder world with this one – mixing together elements of some of the baroque arrangements of early records, with the meaner leaner sound of the 70s – populating the songs with freaks, weirdos, and odd characters that gave the whole thing a really creepy edge. The whole thing's an oft-overlooked gem that, to us, is truly one of Bowie's most magical moments – and titles include "Drive In Saturday", "Panic In Detroit", "Aladdin Sane", "Watch That Man", "The Jean Genie", "The Prettiest Star", "Time", and "Lady Grinning Soul".

Almost a "greatest hit" of "greatest hits" collection – given the importance of this album to the David Bowie catalog! Sure, it compiles tracks from other releases – but it also was the album that gave the world the killer cut "John I'm Only Dancing" – one of the key cuts in Bowie's gender revision in the 70s – and a title that was previously only out as a single! Alongside that gem, you also get a fantastic run of greatness from Bowie's first chapter of recording – the kind of cuts that would make other singers weep – including "Space Oddity", "Changes", "Ziggy Stardust", "Suffragette City", "Jean Genie", "Diamond Dogs", "Rebel Rebel", "Young Americans", "Fame", and "Golden Years".

There's no denying that Hunky Dory is one of the most significant albums ever in the catalog of David Bowie – a real turning point that pushed both his songwriting and performance to a whole new level! Here, that album is presented in a stunning amount of context – 4CDs worth of material that sets up the record, plus blu-ray audio of more content too – all included with a 100 page book of liner notes, memorabilia, and rare photos too – plus a replica of the young Bowie's notebook for the project – all making for an insane tribute to the record! CD1 features songwriting demos that include many rare cuts – including "Shadow Man", "Looking For A Friend", "Tired Of My Life", "Right On Mother", "How Lucky You Are", and "King Of The City". CD2 features John Peel performances from June of 1971 – mono and stereo takes on "Almost Grown", "Kooks", "Supermen", "Looking For A Friend", "Song For Bob Dylan", and "It Ain't Easy".

The album's got some tunes that still show some of the guitar power of the early 70s Bowie – but it's also got some of the beautiful spacier moments brought forward on Low – and which are every bit the Brian Eno of Another Green World. The balance is beautiful – stark and dark on one half, then airy and spacious on the next – handled without any sense of gimmickry, and a bold mainstream experiment that still resonates strongly today. Titles include "Beauty & The Beast", "Joe The Lion", "Heroes", "Sons Of The Silent Age", "Blackout", "V-2 Schneider", "Sense Of Doubt", "Moss Garden", "Neukoln", and "The Secret Life Of Arabia".

Parlophone (Germany), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 26.99
Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the fuzzed-up and full-on guitars of Space Oddity or Man Who Sold the World – and often augmented with a bit of strings and softer touches that really bring out the humanity in the songs. The balance here is amazing – as is the fact that a few short years before, Bowie was singing "The Laughing Gnome", but is here one of the most sensitive songwriters of his generation. Tunes are quirky and personal, and titles include "Changes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Andy Warhol", "Life On Mars", "Kooks", and "Queen Bitch". LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty faultless 20 song compilation of classic Bowie – not so much a greatest hits collection is it is a collection of signature tracks from classic eras – from as far back as 1969's "Space Oddity" up to 2016's stunning "Lazarus". It's really one flawless track after another, and as wildly different in sound and style as individual tracks can be, Bowie is such a bonafide original that you can listen straight through. If you don't own every album, this is pretty great little collection of career highlights – with "Let's Dance', "The Man Who Sold The World", "Young Americans", "The Jean Genie", "Life On Mars (2016 mix)", "Under Pressure", "Starman", "Heroes", "Fame", "Modern Love", "Rebel Rebel" and more.

A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great! There's definitely some massive chart material here, but the tunes are still some of the best of their time, pop-wise – tracks that bring forward the best dark corners of the Bowie mythos, and refine them slightly for a new generation – always in tunefully compelling ways. And despite the crossover fame of the set, it holds up surprisingly well over the years – possibly because of that status. Didja know that Stevie Ray Vaughan plays guitar on this album? Titles include "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Let's Dance", "Without You", "Criminal World", and "Cat People" (in a different take than the soundtrack version.) LP, Vinyl record album

The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite strong – heard very well in the record's use of odd electronics and exotic themes – of a sort that Eno would later explore on his own with David Byrne. But the real charm here is pure Bowie – with an unabashed flair for a dramatic lyric, a well-chosen use of a heavier guitar, and a sense of personality and poise that makes the record one of his most unified ever!

The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover.

Parlophone, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An amazing departure for David Bowie – hardly the kind of record you would expect from his oboe-filled tunes of a few years before – and really the start of the groundbreaking, earthshaking, reinventionist era of his genius! There's a spacious, soaring quality to Space Oddity that's every bit the kind of magical music you might hope for in a set recorded at the close of the 60s – a shift into new modes, new sounds that seem to suck up all the best influences in rock from the previous few years, but fuse it into a new cosmic vision for the next decade. And while others might stumble on cliche with the weight of such a task, Bowie pulls it off brilliantly – mixing his fuzzier feelings with some of his more personal leanings – and showcasing a newly deep sense of songwriting here that's really amazing. Some tunes have the sensitivity of work on Hunky Dory, while others burn with the fire of Man Who Sold The World – all in a balance that never sounds schizophrenic at all. Titles include"Space Oddity", "Memory Of A Free Festival", "God Knows I'm Good", "Cygnet Committee", and "Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dazed". LP, Vinyl record album

Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work of the 70s – and represented a crucial moment when his groundbreaking music also found a large mainstream audience as well. And despite the fact that Ziggy's an androgynous space rocker with a spurious pedigree, the manufactured posturing of the album's come to be taken quite literally over the years – a vivid text of alienation, expression, and redemption – served up beautifully over a host of classic tracks that include "Five Years", "Soul Love", "Moonage Daydream", "Suffragette City", and "Ziggy Stardust" – all further proof of Bowie's 70s ability to slide in wherever he wanted with ease!

David BoykinF**k All Y'all – A Farewell To 2016 ... CD
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 15.99
That's the middle finger of David Boykin on the front cover – bidding a bold farewell to the year of 2016 – with a record that offers up some of the most soul-nourishing sounds we've ever heard from the reedman! The album's got a sharper, almost funkier sound than some of Boykin's other work – a double-length performance that features David on tenor, in a group that also has James Baker on a piano that sounds electric, and which is often played in these blocky chords that fit well with the bass of Alex Wing and drums of Isaiah Spencer – all working as a cohesive trio unity, while Boykin takes off with these searing, searching solos! The mix of spiritual reeds and chunkier rhythms is almost a bit like some of the early "funk" work of Joe McPhee – but Boykin's clearly got his own agenda in the music, and comes off with a mindblowing positive sound. All tracks are long, and titles include "Coronal Mass Ejection", "Wherever You At", "Make It Count", "You Know Who You Are", and "Jaglavak". CD

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 8.99
One of the most spiritual albums we've ever heard from reedman David Boykin – a beautiful batch of long, flowing tunes that have tremendous modal energy and a very cohesive feel! We've always loved Boykin, right from the start – but here he's showing an even deeper sense of spirituality and direction – a great evolution after so many years in jazz, with a strong ability to build new ideas over a very long space – and still communicate in this universal style that transcends time and place! The package is lean – just a small cardboard sleeve – but the music is mighty, and feels like some lost underground jazz classic from the 70s. Boykin plays reeds and a bit of percussion – in a quintet with some really tremendous bass from Josh Abrams – plus piano from James Baker, guitar from Alex Wing, and drums from Marcus Evans – on the tracks "Love Power Magic", "Hyperspace", "6/10/13", and "Some Slick 8 Bar Blues".

One of the most ambitious recordings to date from Chicago improviser David Boykin – a large group performance done in the freely collaborative spirit of older AACM recordings! There's a relaxed, spontaneous vibe here that we really love – as Boykin and other Chicago players work through a variety of sound textures and musical ideas, using a range of instruments that runs from conventional saxes, flute, and guitar, to more unusual sounds from nose flute, bible harp, kitchen bowls, shenai, and many other less-common instruments. The entire work runs for 70 minutes in length, divided up into 10 shorter segments. CD

Boykin's always had this sort of quality in his music, but it feels as if in recent years, he's gotten even more righteous and powerful – definitely the case here, as he rises to the skies on tenor – blowing in a group that features Jim Baker on piano, Alex Wing on bass, and Isaiah Spencer on drums – plus a trio of female singers who bring this really magical quality to the whole thing – maybe a more compact version of the Eddie Gale experiments on Blue Note at the start of the 70s! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Empowerment", "Omni-Intervallic", and "Progenitor". CD

Given the energy going on here, we can say that saxophonist David Boykin isn't sublimating any of his thoughts – as the record's got a wonderfully explosive vibe right from the start, then continues to soar in a mighty nice way! The format's a trio – Boykin's tenor next to the bass of Alex Wing and drums of Marcus Evans – a modernist saxophone lineup that stretches back to the late 50s experiments of Sonny Rollins, but which is also a perfect vehicle for David's voice here – maybe more unfettered and upfront than on some of his larger projects, and with this deftness that easily marks him as a hell of a soloist in the best modern tenor tradition! Titles include "Cerebro", "Intellectual Warfare", "Sublimation", "Intro Elemental", and "For Cornballs". CD

The cover and title here hint at the music within – as David Boykin plays solo, and moves between work on bass clarinet and drums – both instruments we're not used to hearing him handle, and which open up very different sides of his style! The drums are maybe the biggest surprise – sometimes starting out spare and tentative, then moving in these almost-cyclical passages – as Boykin makes his way around the drum kit, feeling out textures and patterns, then slightly shifting them as the performance moves on! The bass clarinet work is great too – sometimes with a rich tone that's not typical for the instrument – almost as if David is channeling his tenor expression through the different horn, with results that are wonderful. The set features five improvised performances, titled one through five. CD

A great reworking of the extended Solar Suite by Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – issued many years back in a studio version, and presented here in a bold new take done at the same 63rd Street Beach House that used to host performances by Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble! Boykin is tremendous here as a key soloist – and the group is led by Renee Baker as part of the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project – although the ensemble here is just a septet, with work from Joshua Abrams on bass, Jim Baker on keyboards, Alex Wing on guitar, Tony Herrera on trombone, Quentin Coaxum on trumpet, and Marcus Evans on drums! The set's worth it alone for Boykin's wonderful tenor work, but the whole group is fantastic as well – soaring up with a mighty spirit that lives up the legacy of the storied space of the recording – on titles that include "Midnight & Sunrise", "Midday", "Sunset", and "Enocturnal Sun".

Maybe one of the most political projects we've ever heard from saxophonist David Boykin, and one of the most ambitious too – a jazz opera that deals with the recent struggles of black America in the face of increased police brutality – inspired by the tragic deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and others! The piece features vocals – both sung and rhymed, performed by a group that was put together especially for this event – with vocals from Rhonda Gray and Quenna Lene, plus Boykin himself – and rhymes from Manu Wisdom. Bokyin plays fantastic tenor throughout, alongside drums from Josh Ross and bass from Rollo Radford – and the mix of voice with this stripped-down lineup is incredibly powerful, with the best energy of an underground project like this from the 70s. The group also features a bit of turntable work from Abstract Black and some piano from Aliyyah Heatherington – and the whole thing was recorded live in concert, in late 2017. CD

The first take on the track has some very old school beats – making the whole thing feel like an indie hip hop single from the late 80s, with a very political message – and the CD features a second track on the same topic, billed as "random rhymness", and with a looser, more contemporary approach! Again, not a jazz record – but a surprising hip hop EP from the great saxophonist, in collaboration with Dark Mery. CD

David Boykin works here in a very different guise than his usual role as a saxophonist – stepping out here with a range of different singers, in a set of tracks that showcase a whole new side of his talents! The music is a mix of modern jazz vocals and contemporary soul modes – different depending on the singers, who shift from cut to cut – at a level that sometimes echoes June Tyson or Abbey Lincoln, other times reflects more contemporary work from the underground! As always with Boykin's CDs, the notes are a bit spare, so it's hard to tell who did what in terms of the music – but we can say that the set features vocals from Abeeku, Consuela Ivy-Vaughn, Dark Mery, Liz Mputu, and Ugochi – on titles that include "Listen Up", "She Was Screaming", "What The Afrofuture Say", "Slow Sweet Burn", "Conspiracy", and "Of My Voice".

The lineup here is great – with Boykin on tenor, Nicole Mitchell on flute, Josh Abrams on bass, James Baker on piano, and Myron Cherry on drums – working together beautifully in a tribute to the late Hazel Boykin – at a level that arguably has more structure and force than even other great Boykin recordings of the time! The interplay between tenor and flute is wonderful – very complex, but also deeply soulful, and quite organic – and David's especially great, blowing with that spiritual power that really made us sit up and take notice when he first came onto the scene.

"Expanse" is a mighty big name for the group that David Boykin uses on this record – especially given that the combo's only a quintet – but that's ok with us, because the sound here is more than large enough to warrant the name! Boykin's working with a great batch of players from the Chicago scene here – including frequent musical partner Nicole Mitchell on flute, sliding wonderfully alongside David's saxophones – plus Jim Baker on piano, Josh Abrams on bass, and Mike Reed on drums. The album features two longish tracks, both composed by Boykin with a vision that's freely expressive, yet never too free – a perfect balance that reigns things in wonderfully, and which shows him to be one of the key current heirs to a Chicago tradition that runs back to the early AACM and Sun Ra!

A bit of a comeback for James Brown – a mid 80s outing recorded with Dan Hartman, who gives the record a "contemporary" sound that's definitely a great way to slide James in with the younger crowd at the time! The style's still funky, but has more street soul elements too – and the record sports guest appearances by Alison Moyet, Steve Winwood, and Stevie Ray Vaughan – and although the production is a bit stiff at points, there's some undeniable quality in James that still makes some nice moments shine through! Titles include "Gravity", "Let's Get Personal", "How Do You Stop", "Living In America", "Goliath", "Repeat The Beat", and "Return To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Gavin BryarsSinking Of The Titanic ... CD
Obscure/Superior Viaduct, 1975. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
An early moment of genius from composer Gavin Bryars – and a set that was issued on Brian Eno's Obscure Records label in the mid 70s, which ensured that Bryars' music found a larger audience outside the realm of avant classical! That turns out to be a good thing here, as the music here is almost of its own genre – warmer and more personal than some of the arch modes of the CRI generation – as Bryars mixes a small string group with his own piano, a bit of spoken word, and tapes of additional strings – which add in this eerie sort of ghost vibe to the piece – a slight current of sentiment, but not in a romantic way. The second piece is equally important to Bryars' career – the wonderful "Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet" – which uses a found recording of the older song by an elderly singer, then echoed and augmented by work from Michael Nyman on organ and Derek Bailey on guitar, plus a bit of strings.

Harold BuddPavilion Of Dreams ... LP
Obscure/Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 29.98
One of the earliest albums ever from Harold Budd – an artist who'd later rise to great ambient fame in the following decade, but who's maybe at his most sophisticated here! The set has all the hallmark of the new musical experiments that Brian Eno was showcasing on his Obscure Music label – where the set first appeared – and Budd plays electric piano with a very cool set of contemporary musicians – a lineup that includes alto sax from Marion Brown, harp from Maggie Thomas, marimba from Michael Nyman and John White, and glockenspiel from Gavin Bryars. Brian Eno produced the record, and vocalizes slightly – and tracks have a long-spun, almost spiritual vibe – on titles that include "Bismallahi Rrahmani Rrahmani", "Two Songs (Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord/Butterfly Sunday)", "Madrigals Of The Rose Angel", and "Juno".

A Alyce Claerbaut/David SchlesingerStrayhorn – An Illustrated Life (hardcover) ... Book
Bolden, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 35.00
A beautiful tribute to one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century – Duke Ellington's longtime musical partner, the mighty Billy Strayhorn! The book presents Billy's life and music in a really great format – using songs as sidebars amidst the larger text – which is then illustrated with a huge amount of beautiful oversized photos, reproductions of scores, and other great images! There's also additional sidebars on Strayhorn from jazz peers who include Clark Terry, Nancy Wilson, Lena Horne, and many others – and the book has this wonderfully vivid approach that really does the creative genius as much justice on the page as he's gotten on record. 196 pages, hardcover, and filled with great images!

Avishai CohenTrumpet Player ... LP
Fresh Sound (Spain), 2003. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 39.99
The debut as a leader from trumpeter Avishai Cohen – and a set that's the start of a great legacy for one of the freshest new voices on his instrument in the past few decades! Here, Cohen is maybe a bit bolder and swinging than on some of his later ECM recordings – and working in a mighty nice trio that features John Sullivan on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums – a mode that almost has Avishai taking his own stance on the freedoms offered by saxophone trios in modern jazz over the decades – freedoms he really puts to great use here! Three tracks feature additional work from Joel Frahm on tenor – and titles include "The Fast", "Dear Lord", "Idaho", "Trumpet Player", "Olympus", and "Shablol". LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver CraskeIndian Sun – The Life & Music Of Ravi Shankar (hardcover) ... Book
Faber & Faber (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $8.99 32.00
Sitar genius Ravi Shankar was a huge figure on the American scene in the 60s – an important musician who helped get Indian music the recognition it deserved – and who went on to influence giants like The Beatles and Philip Glass in their own music as well! Yet despite these obvious and oft-told touchstones, Shankar has a much longer, richer story – all of which is covered here in tremendous depth – the result of a huge project that involved over 130 interviews, materials from the Shankar family archives, and countless other hours of research – all to really get at the unique place that Ravi holds in the global music scene! This heavy, hardcover volume is over 650 pages, including some very detailed notes and other information at the end – packaged with two sections of black and white images as well. Book
