Serge Gainsbourg/Alain Goraguer/Michel ColombierSerge Gainsbourg Et Le Cinema ... LP
Alternative Fox, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Early film music from the great Serge Gainsbourg – nice work from a stretch before Serge got totally funky in the movies, but could still bring some very groovy elements to a picture! The work here features arrangements by Alain Goraguer and Michel Colombier – both of whom helped unlock the coolest sides of Serge's talents – and music is often jazzy, with a hint of Latin or exotic elements too – and many of the tracks here are instrumental, but still wonderfully haunting! Juliette Greco sings on "Strip Tease", and Serge sings on "L'Eau A Bouche" and "Comment Trouvez Vous Ma Soeur" – and other titles include "No Love For Daddy", "Erotico Tico", "Wake Me At Five", "Black March", "Cha Cha Du Loup", and "Rocking Horse". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered to play at 45 rpm.)

✨✧ JoyceJoyce (1968) ... LP
Philips/Alternative Fox (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album by Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! The album's a wonderfully lyrical batch of tracks – many written by Joyce herself, plus a few by Brazilian songwriters Jards Macale, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the orchestrations are by Gaya, and played on a number of tracks by Dori Caymmi and his group. The style shows many elements of Joyce's later unique style, filtered through a more standard late bossa sound – light and breezy, but with a bit of a dark edge that's in a classic Jobim mode. Includes the track "Superego", which feels a lot like Joyce from the 70s – plus the lovely "Litoral", and the tracks "Me Disseram", "Nao Muda, Nao", "Cantiga De Procura", "Choro Chorado", "Bloco Do Eu Sozinho", and "Improvisado".

✨✧ Steve LacyThreads ... LP
Horo/Alternative Fox (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A real standout in the 70s catalog of reedman Steve Lacy – and that's saying a lot, given that he gave us so many fantastic records in the decade! The album's proof that the Horo Records label had a great knack for capturing key players in some different, but fantastic formations – and here, Lacy is blowing soprano sax alongside ex-MEV members Alvin Curran and Frederic Rzewski – in a unique quality that's very different than many of Lacy's other recordings of the 70s. Curran's got his usual mad edge – and plays synthesizer, percussion, and flugelhorn – while Rzewski contributes some nicely restrained dark lines on acoustic piano. Titles include "Skirts", "Threads", "Rabbit", and "Broils". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Archie SheppTradition ... LP
Horo/Alternative Fox (UK), 1977. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Archie Shepp's most soulful records of the 70s – and proof that the Horo label could get amazing work out of any player! The record features Shepp in a spare trio setting – with Cameron Brown on bass and Clifford Jarvis on drums – and each of the four sides features an extended reading of more traditional jazz material, yet still done in a manner that's quite free, and extremely soulful. Side one features Shepp's "Hooray For Mal", side three features the excellent "Things Have Got to Change" by the great Cal Massey, and the remaining sides feature two great Ellington interpretations, "I Didn't Know About You" and "Sophisticated Lady". Great stuff all around – and a perfect bridge between two different modes of the music of Archie Shepp! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herbie Hancock & Jaco PastoriusLive In Chicago – 16 February 1977 ... LP
Alternative Fox (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A live pairing of two giants of 70s jazz – keyboardist Herbie Hancock and bassist Jaco Pastorius – captured live in our fair city of Chicago at a small north side club! The bass of Pastorius seems to make for an even funkier sound than usual – and plenty of strong bass solos too – and the group is very lean, with just Benny Maupin on reeds and James Levi on drums – as the quartet stretch out in ways that really open up the tunes! The tracks are familiar numbers from the Herbie Hancock songbook, but the execution here is quite unique – and the set features versions of "Chameleon", "Hang Up Your Hang Ups", "It Remains To Be Seen", and "Maiden Voyage".

✨✧ Mal Waldron & Gary PeacockFirst Encounter ... LP
Victor/Alternative Fox (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Far-reaching and incredibly soulful work from Mal Waldron and Gary Peacock! Both players are at the height of their powers here, and have a warmth and sense of interplay that makes the session one of the best they did alone or together during the time. The group's a trio, with Hiroshi Murakami added in on bass – and the overall feel is similar to some of the best Japanese trio sessions of the early 70s, with great recording, long drawn-out introspective songs, and free unbridled playing that you don't always get on American sessions by the same players. Titles include "Walking Way", "What's That", "She Walks In Beauty", and "The Heart Of The Matter". LP, Vinyl record album
