Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99 17.98
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

✨✧ AppleApple A Day (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Page One/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's an apple on the cover, and an apple in the name – and this British group Apple maybe owes a bit to late 60s Beatles material on Apple Records – but only in the way that they both had greatness recorded during the same time period! Apple are maybe a bit more lean, with some of the mix of psych and beat group elements that we love in The Creation – tunes that are short, focused, and catchy – but which also pack plenty into a small space too – maybe also like the energy of The Move at their start! The production is great – lots of nice stuff happening around the edges, which sounds especially great on the strong piano lines that dominate many tunes – really making the group sound a bit different than other groups that lead with the guitar – although Apple has plenty of greatness in that aspect too! Titles include "Let's Take A Trip Down The Rhine", "Doctor Rock", "The Otherside", "Mr. Jones", "Queen Of Hearts Blues", "Rock Me Baby", "Buffalo Billycan", "Psycho Daisies", and "Pretty Girl I Love You". CD features bonus tracks – mono single versions of "Buffalo Billycan", "The Otherside", "Doctor Rock", and "Let's Take A Trip Down The Rhine". CD

Doug CarnAdams Apple ... CD
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1974. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99 On December 17, 2021
The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts! Jean Carn isn't in the group this time around, but the set does feature a totally great twin-vocal approach – with singing by Joyce Green and John Conner, blending their voices together in a style that's right up there with the most righteous 70s jazz experiments by Horace Silver or Billy Gault! This vocal balance really brings a new sort of power to Carn's music – furthering the righteous spirit of earlier years with a hell of a lot of energy – also aided by great instrumental work from Ronnie Laws on tenor and soprano sax, Thurman Green on trombone, Calvin Keys and Nathan Page on guitars, and Big Black on percussion. Titles include the classic "Higher Ground" – plus "Adam's Apple", "Western Sunrise", "Chant", "Sanctuary", "The Messenger", and "Mighty Mighty". CD

Rose McDowell & Shawn PinchbeckFar From The Apple Tree ... LP
Glass Modern (UK), 2019. Sealed ... $19.99
A moody little soundtrack – but one that stands strongly on its own as a record – thanks to inventive weaving of vocals, tapes, and electronics from Shawn Pinchbeck and Rose McDowell! Rose has a voice that might be light and airy in another setting, but which is layered here in gentle currents of sound from Pinchbeck – who provides treatments to instruments played and arranged by the pair, with help from Robert Lee – in a manner that almost takes us back to the best production styles of 4AD Records back in the 80s, with Rose McDowell's personal approach reminding us a bit of Virginia Astley instead of Elizabeth Fraser! Titles include "Bittersweet", "Spirit Flesh", "Storm", "Gem", "Nocturne", "Butterfly Hawk", and "Drown Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Jay McShannBig Apple Bash ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
A much groovier record than you might expect – hardly the older-styled jazz session normally associated with Jay McShann, and more of a wide-ranging session that brings in some great contemporary touches! The album's something of a celebration for Jay – and it features wonderful guest work from players who include Gerry Mulligan on baritone and soprano sax, Herbie Mann on flute and tenor sax, John Scofield on guitar, Doc Cheatham on trumpet, and Eddie Gomez on bass. A few tunes have an older Kansas City sort of swing, but others have a vamping groove that's really great – and these numbers really stand out in the set with some great solo moments. Titles include "Crazy Legs & Friday Strut", "Blue Feeling", "Jumpin The Blues", "Dickie's Dream", and "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water". CD

✨✧ Sunny Murray's Untouchable FactorApple Cores ... LP
Philly Jazz, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the hippest, tightest sessions ever recorded by drummer Sunny Murray – a large group set recorded with his Untouchable Factor group – a great ensemble that includes Frank Foster on soprano sax, Oliver Lake and Arthur Blythe on alto saxes, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Don Pullen on piano, and Cecil McBee and Fred Hopkins on bass! The sound is somewhat straighter than Murray's free jazz of a few years before – almost in the mode that Foster was exploring with some of his large ensembles of the 70s – a platform for righteous jazz expression, but in a way that's still tied together strongly with a sense of rhythm. Other players on the group include the enigmatic Youseff Yancy on a host of instruments, including theremin – plus the under-recorded Monette Sudler on guitar. Some tracks are a bit more outside than others – and titles include "Past Perfect Tense", "One Down & One Up", "Applebluff", "Apple Cores", and "New York Maze". LP, Vinyl record album

Wayne ShorterAdam's Apple (non RVG pressing) ... CD
Blue Note, 1966. Used ... $9.99
An incredible album – one of our favorite Blue Notes ever! Despite the fact that the album's a spare quartet session, the record is one of Wayne Shorter's richest – and features his gutsy young tenor soloing insanely with a rhythmically intense combo that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – a wonderfully free-thinking rhythm trio! Workman's bass is especially strong, and it underpins the cuts with a throbbing pulse that takes them past any simple hardbop conventions. Every cut's a winner – and this is one album we reach for time and time again over the years! Titles include "Adam's Apple", "El Gaucho", "Footprints", and "Teru". CD reissue contains an extra bonus cut, "The Collector". CD

Apple/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5CD ... $39.99 54.99
A fascinating look at the farther reaches of the Apple Records empire during its ill-fated run – not the familiar records by non-Beatle artists, like Badfinger or Billy Preston – but instead a wide range of really surprising artists, who all had relationships to the Apple empire in very different ways! CD1 features Lost Sessions & Singles – material recorded during the earliest days of the Apple imprint, but which never saw the light of day at the time – some overlooked gems by Brute Force, Grapefruit, Timon, Contact, Mortimer, and Drew & Dy. CDs 2 and 3 are maybe some fo the best known parts of the pie – singles and other cuts that were issued at the time, but which are still pretty darn obscure – work by Danny Kalb & Stefan Grossman, The Misunderstood, Turquoise, Joker, Coconut, Gallagher & Lyle, The Perishers, Rawlings & Huckstep, The Cups, Coconut Mushroom, The U, Focal Point, and others too! CD4 features work recorded at the upgraded Apple studios in the early 70s – tracks by Linda Lewis, Pagliaro, Tim Hardin, Fanny, Contact, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Stealers Wheel, Badfinger, John Howard, Tony Hazzard, and Mike McGear. And CD5 features The Ghosts Of Baker Street – some of the material recorded as demos in the very early Apple studio – cuts by Barry Alexander, Robert & Miles Priestley, Focal Point, Jackie Lomax, Drew & Dry, Jack Hollingshead, and George Alexander. CD comes with a huge booklet of notes to open up these very lost recordings – and the whole thing features a massive 107 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Red Rodney/Herman Schoonderwalt QuintetScrapple From The Apple ... CD
Blue Jack Jazz/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare date from bop legend Red Rodney – a sweet 70s set that has the player working overseas with a Dutch quintet! Red shares leadership of the group with saxophonist Herman Schoonderwalt – who plays both alto and clarinet on the record – and the record's a live date, done for radio with very good sound quality. All tracks are quite long, with a nicely building quality – often strong trumpet lines in the lead from Red, followed by surprisingly great reedwork from Herman. Nico Bunink is the pianist in the group – and titles include "Schooldays", "Jurdu", "Lover Man", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "I Can't Get Started". CD

Inner City/P-Vine (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An auspicious name, but an intimate little record – one served up by the vocal duo of Wendy Simon and Eric Shaw – in a mode that's a fair bit like work from Jackie & Roy, but a bit more bop-oriented as well! The pair do a great job of riffing together on the upbeat numbers – trading lines in a horn-inspired vocalese way – and just like Jackie, Wendy steps out herself on a few of the more intimate numbers. Titles include some well-chosen tunes like "Miss Harper Goes Bizarre", "Love Webster's Definition", "Coconut Grove", and "I've Got Just About Everything" – plus versions of "Symphony Sid", "Everybody's Boppin", "My Favorite Things", and "Everybody Eats When They Come To My House".

Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nicely biting session from Japanese pianist Fumio Itabashi – a set that rounds out his trio with guest alto sax and guitar on a few of the cuts, which makes for a fuller, more driven sound overall! There's definitely a soulful groove to the set – kind of an 80s soulbop mode overall – and Itabashi's piano is recorded with a bright tone that sets the record apart from American efforts of the time, a slightly different feel than his 70s material at points, although some of the best numbers still have those comping lines we love so much in his music. Titles include "Don't Say Goodbye", "I'm Gone", "Mina", "Alicante", "Red Apple", and "Beatrice". CD

Apple, 1969. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King".

The tunes are short, and heavy on influences from American R&B – yet the Fab Four are already crafting their new sound strongly, and have a melodic brilliance that's hard to deny!

One of those records that we always forget about, until we drop the needle – the revel in its sweet blend of Beatles modes on tracks that include "Help", "The Night Before", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "I've Just Seen A Face", "Yesterday", "Act Naturally", "It's Only Love", "Ticket To Ride", and "I Need You".

An overstuffed album of early greatness – served up with a classic image of the Fab Four on the cover! The tunes are a mix of Lennon/McCartney originals and American soul and rock numbers that are reinterpreted wonderfully by the group – in ways that perfectly show why, unlike most of their contemporaries, The Beatles weren't just trying for slavish imitation of American authenticity – and instead were already taking off with new ideas inspired by the music! Titles include "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Misery", "Anna", "I Saw Her Standing There", "Boys", "Baby IT's You", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Twist & Shout", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Chains". CD

BeatlesRubber Soul (Remastered) ... CD
Apple, 1965. Used ... $6.99
A landmark leaping-off point for The Beatles – and a record that really paved the way for countless new ideas to come! The mix of catchy pop and freer ideas here is really wonderful – tunes that introduce a whole new mature world in mainstream music – yet manage to have all the catchy complexity of the earlier years too. Production, songwriting, and delivery is superb – and this version features 14 songs that include "Drive My Car", "Norwegian Wood", "Nowhere Man", "Think For Yourself", "The Word", "What Goes On", "Girl", "I'm Looking Through You", and "Run For Your Life"".

✨✧ John LennonImagine (40th Anniversary box set with Imagine Sessions 12 inch, poster and post cards) (Record Store Day Black Friday Release) ... LP
Apple, 1971. Near Mint- 2LP ... $59.99
An amazing limited box set release of John Lennon's Imagine – issued as a special 40th Anniversary package, and even cooler than the original release back in the 70s! The white box has a great cover image of John at the piano, with Yoko sitting nearby – and contains 2LPs, on 180 gram white vinyl – plus a poster and postcards as well! The core album is Imagine, of course – the most consistent of John's post-Beatles albums, and just about as essential as they come. Co-produced by Phil Spector, yet it's often not as grandly orchestrated as a Wall Of Sound effort, and well tailored to Lennon's songs – which include "Give Me Some Truth", "Oh My Love", "How Do You Sleep", "Imagine", "Crippled Inside", "Jealous Guy" and "I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier". The second LP features Imagine Sessions material – early versions of "Baby Please Don't Go", "Imagine", "How Do You Sleep", "Jealous Love", "Oh My Love", and "I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier".

✨✧ John LennonPlastic Ono Band ... LP
Apple, 1970. Very Good- ... $16.99
The first true proper solo album by John Lennon – recorded after a few non-Beatles records with Yoko Ono, and at the same time as Yoko's much wilder album with a similar title! This one, though, is John at his best – very personal and exposed, in similar territory to Paul McCartney on his first solo record – and the whole thing is a fantastic testament to the humanity that Lennon always brought to his music, even at a time when some might have accused him of going off the deep end with some of his more experimental music. The record's got a relatively stripped-down vibe, although isn't entirely just voice and guitar – as other elements are brought in at just the right level to expand the sound without losing the Lennon at the core. Titles include "Mother", "Hold On", "I Found Out", "Working Class Hero", "Isolation", "Remember", "Love", "Well Well Well", "Look At Me", "God", and "My Mummy's Dead". LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing experimental set from the team of John Lennon & Yoko Ono – a record that might look hippy dippy on the cover, given its famous nude image of the pair – but which really unleashes a very experimental sound throughout – one that's more in keeping with Yoko's ties to the Fluxus movement than anything that John did before! In other words, if you dig the song "Revolution #9" on The White Album, you'll find a lot to love here – and all these many years later, the whole thing maybe is even better than before, away from the gooey love story behind it!

Jon LucienLive In NYC ... CD
Sugar Apple, 2003. Used ... $11.99
A recent set from vocalist Jon Lucien – but easily some of the greatest work he's ever recorded! The session's done with a freeness that goes beyond even Jon's classic RCA and Columbia albums – an acoustic setting that allows for more spontaneous expression and warmly flowing energy than we've ever heard – letting Jon really stretch out on longer readings of tunes that sparkle with his tremendous vocals! The core group backing him up are tight, but really keep things simple – getting past some of the slickness of Lucien's recent albums, and giving him some of the most strongly jazz-based backings of his career – while still retaining the free-flowing rhythms that showed up best on his RCA work. This is way more than just one of those "classic artists out for one more live set" albums – and it easily stands with our favorite 70s albums by Jon! Titles include "Sunny Day", "Out Of This World", "Creole Lady", "Best Is Yet To Come", "Dindi", "Take Me Away", "Love Me", "You're Sensational", and "Angel Eyes". CD

A huge crossover moment for the young Billy Preston – a set that took him from his early fame as a child prodigy on the organ, to a realm of spiritual soul music that would set the course for his big albums of the 70s! The album's produced by George Harrison, and issued on The Beatles' Apple label – and the set's got a nicely rootsy style that's heavy on influences from gospel, and which often uses female backing vocals behind Billy's lead and organ. Harrison managed to get Billy to record versions of "My Sweet Lord" (wonder if Billy got sued too?) and "All Things Must Pass" – and other titles include "Let The Music Play", "I've Got A Feeling", "Right Now", "Use What You Got", and "Right Now".

As warm and wonderful of a late 60s singer songwriter effort as we can imagine wanting to hear in the late 60s mainstream – so it's fitting that James Taylor was signed with the Beatles' Apple Records for this excellent self-titled album! The lyrics chronicle a troubled soul, but man, did James ever making encroaching personal horrors sound sweet at his best. We think he's at his best here, and titles include "Don't Talk Now", "Knocking 'Round The Zoo", "Carolina In My Mind", "Night Owl", "Rainy Day Man", "The Blues Is Just A Bad Dream" and more.

The whole thing is wonderful – a mix of soul, rock, and pop – all produced with that classic "wall of sound" style that made Phil Spector such an early production genius in the 60s! The music is from those magical times when boundary-busting art and craft were mixed perfectly with pop styles that anyone could instantly fall in love with – and titles include "Frosty The Snowman" by The Ronettes, "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, "Marshmallow World" by Darlene Love, "Sleigh Ride" by The Ronnettes, "Winter Wonderland" by Darlene Love, "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town" by The Crystals, and "Silent Night" by Phil and other artists on the set!

The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King".

This isn't one of those "shoulda been a single record" sets – as Harrison has this amazing ability to craft new tunes with new styles in a way that really sets the record apart from his later work with The Beatles – maybe a summation of all those wonderful little moments that George was starting to add to their records, but fully blossomed here into a field's worth of fantastic musical flowers. Titles include "My Sweet Lord", "Wah Wah", "I'd Have You Anytime", "What Is Life", "Run Of The Mill", "Isn't It A Pity", "Plus Me In", "Thanks For The Pepperoni", "Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp", "Beware Of Darkness", "Out Of The Blue", and "Hear Me Lord".

The shift of moods, tones, and sounds are as varied as the choice of celebrities appearing with the group on the cover – and the interplay between Paul, Linda, and Denny Laine has really hit its stride – on titles that include one of our all-time Wings favorites, "Nineteen Hundred Eighty Five" – plus "Band On The Run", "Bluebird", "Jet", "Mrs Vanderbilt", "Let Me Roll It", "Mamunia", "No Words", and "Picasso's Last Words (Drink To Me)".

Milt Jackson's vibes have a bit more of a bell-like quality on some parts, and the rhythm team of Percy Heath and Connie Kay kick it with a soul jazz vibe on a few numbers – a nice change from the sleepier rhythms of earlier albums.

An early moment of genius from post-Beatles Paul McCartney – a solo set that's wonderfully diverse throughout – filled with the kinds of cool little twists and turns we loved in his late Beatles records, and in his 70s killers with Wings! There's a newly-emerging sweetness going on here – that great sound that started to emerge with the McCartney album – where Paul was a proud, put-together family guy – easily one of the most confident of his fab foursome, and able to bring an incredible amount of charm to just about any style he wanted to try! Some of the best cuts here are the mellower, more personal moments – still delivered with an amazing rock-solid sense of musicianship and production, too – and even the rockers, which might sound clunky in the hands of anyone else, manage to come off with a great deal of charm as well. Titles include the wonderfully playful "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" – plus "Too Many People", "Heart Of The Country", "Dear Boy", "Ram On", "The Back Seat Of My Car", and "Smile Away".

The Beatles live at the BBC – heard here in a host of rare recordings that were done between March 1962 and June 1965 – pulled from the vaults of the legendary radio station, and with a few cool dialogue bits too! The versions here were all played live on the air, and make for some much-needed alternate takes on the big hits by the Fab Four – and a few American numbers that really show the influence of other styles on their early sound. And since the recordings were done in a top-shelf studio, they're not muddy concert recordings – but actually feel more like some lost EMI studio material from the same period. 71 titles in all – including "Nothin Shakin", "The Hippy Hippy Shake", "Glad All Over", "Rock & Roll Music", "Ticket To Ride", "Ooh My Soul", "Don't Ever Change", "Slow Down", "Matchbox", "I Forgot To Remember To Forget", "The Honeymoon Song", "Lucille", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Taste Of Honey", "From Us To You", "I Got A Woman", "I'll Be On My Way", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Some Other Guy", "Soldier Of Love", and "Clarabella".

✨✧ Bill Brown & The Soul InjectionDreamworld Fantasies – Rare Single Collection ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
We don't know much about Bill Brown and his group – but they're a fantastic lost act from the 70s, and one who have a fantastic way of mixing warm soul harmonies with some very sharp grooves! The rhythms are pretty upbeat on most tracks, but the vibe is before the disco and club years – that special moment when funk musicians were able to move quick, and never lose their groove – and singers like Bill were able to slide into the mix and really soar with their vocals! We've never heard any of these cuts before, and the whole thing is like discovering a lost chapter of 70s soul that we'd completely missed – one that we'd rank right up there with some of the hippest east coast group soul of the time.

Bill Brown & The Soul InjectionDreamworld Fantasies – Rare Single Collection ... LP
P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $36.99
We don't know much about Bill Brown and his group – but they're a fantastic lost act from the 70s, and one who have a fantastic way of mixing warm soul harmonies with some very sharp grooves! The rhythms are pretty upbeat on most tracks, but the vibe is before the disco and club years – that special moment when funk musicians were able to move quick, and never lose their groove – and singers like Bill were able to slide into the mix and really soar with their vocals! We've never heard any of these cuts before, and the whole thing is like discovering a lost chapter of 70s soul that we'd completely missed – one that we'd rank right up there with some of the hippest east coast group soul of the time. Titles include "Bip Bam (parts 1 & 2)", "Stay Off The Moon", "Sock It To The Landlord", "Rainbow", "Time After Time", "Fool-Ology", "Love Under The Apple Tree", and "Dreamworld Fantasies". Also includes an instrumental of "Time After Time" – and a Billy Wilson version of "Fool-Ology". LP, Vinyl record album

EdenEden ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
If Adam's Eden was this groovy, he might not have gotten into trouble with Eve, the apple, and all of that other business! This Eden's a French Canadian group from the 70s – and one that's got a wonderfully proggy sound – super-strong drums, long-spinning keyboards, and criss-crossing guitar lines that get occasional vocal support – but which are more than comfortable enough here working on long instrumental passages, of the type that put this record tight next to some of the best Italian prog classics of the 70s. Vocals are by Jean-Bernard Borja, but only feature on a few of the songs – leaving plenty of room for instrumental magic on cuts that include "Intuition", "La Foret", "Allias", "La Ballerine Musclee", "Transe", and a nice take on Faure's "Pavane".

Curtis Fuller & The Jazz AmbassadorsJazz Conference Abroad (Trip) ... LP
Smash/Trip, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An excellent jam-session set – featuring Curtis Fuller and a host of excellent American players that includes Phil Woods, Freddie Hubbard, Sahib Shihab, Benny Bailey, Eric Dixon, and Patti Brown. The group's also joined by Europeans Stu Martin and Ake Persson – in very long tracks that have an open-ended, live jam session feel to them. This mix of players is very strong, and the set feels like it's more of an MPS/Saba set than the usual Smash/Mercury jazz outing from the time. Recorded in Switzerland in the mid 60s – and featuring long versions of "Stolen Moments", "Blue N Boogie", and "Scrapple From The Apple". LP, Vinyl record album

Global Village Trucking CompanySmiling Revolution (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Caroline/Esoteric (UK), 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
The one and only album ever issued by this really unique UK group – a set that didn't even come out until after the combo had broken up in the mid 70s! Global Village Trucking Company have a long name that echoes the spirit of the Cali scene – and like some of the Marin County groups, they've got urban roots, but mostly rehearse and hang out in the country – in styles that evolve past earlier folk and blues influences, to a nicely collaborative, sometimes-jamming style that has a very easygoing vibe. The sound is great – like one of those early 70s groups recorded by Capitol or Columbia who never got a big push from the label – and titles include "Lasga's Farm", "Skytrain", "Smiling Revolution", "Down In The Lowlands", "Watch Out There's A Mind About", "Love Your Neighbour", and "On The Judgement Day". 2CD version features lots of bonus tracks – titles that include "Love Will Find A Way", "Earl Stoneham The Gunslinger", "You're A Floozy Madame Karma", "Everybody Needs A Good Friend", "It Ain't No Apple Pie", and "Pebbles".

Dexter Gordon on the European scene at the end of the 60s – blowing with that bold, well-formed tone that makes extended performances like this so great – almost a casebook lesson on tenor-based invention – set to some well-crafted rhythms by a trio that features Cees Slinger on piano, Jacques Schols on bass, and Han Bennink on drums! The players offer a nice change from some other Gordon dates of this nature – but still really let Dexter take the lead strongly on tenor – blowing openly on long takes of tunes that include "Junior", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Willow Weep For Me", and "Rhythm A Ning".

Dexter GordonOur Man In Paris ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $5.99
One of our favorite Dexter Gordon sessions for Blue Note – and a unique album that's one of the first to illustrate his growing role in the European jazz scene! The group's a quartet – which let's Dex stand out front with plenty of space for marvelous tenor work – and it features Parisian bassist Pierre Michelot, plus Americans Bud Powell on piano and Kenny Clarke on drums – two players who were already making a bit name for themselves overseas. The album's a perfect link between Gordon's earlier American work and his long string of European sessions to come – and titles include a great take of "Scrapple from the Apple", plus excellent readings of "Stairway to the Stars" and "Night in Tunisia". The format is simple, but the sound is magic – classic Dexter Gordon in a tight Blue Note mode! CD reissue also includes 2 non LP bonus cuts – "Our Love Is Here To Stay" and "Like Someone In Love".

Grace JonesLiving My Life ... LP
Island, 1982. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of Grace Jones' best albums – recorded at a point when she was really beginning to stretch the boundaries of club music, crossing over with the early 80s post-punk/post-disco crowd through a melange of sounds that was all her own. The oveblown diva mode of her disco years is gone by this point – and in its place is a wonderfully stripped down sound that bubbles with influences from reggae, post-punk, and elsewhere! The set was recorded in Nassau, with rhythm from Sly, Robbie, and Wally Badarou – and titles include a fair bit of original numbers penned with Barry Reynolds. Tracks include "Nipple To The Bottle", "My Jamaican Guy", "The Apple Stretching", "Cry Now, Laugh Later", and "Inspiration". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Owens (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 26.95
A really cool look at a label that was maybe one of the hippest things the Beatles ever did – the short-lived Zapple imprint – which was part of their main Apple label, but dedicated to more experimental work from a variety of musicians and writers! The imprint is perhaps best remembered as the home of more avant recordings by John & Yoko, and by George Harrison – but it also presented material by Allen Ginsberg, Charles Bukowski, Charles Olson, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and other key underground figures – a legacy that would have been enormous, had it continued. The book is put together by Zapple label manager Barry Miles – and includes loads of photos and images too – studio shots, ads, and a lot more elements that help bring this lost label to life once again! 272 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

It's Dance Time, Memphis style – thanks to a hip album of instrumentals from the great Willie Mitchell! This one's actually a bit rougher around the edges than some of Willie's other work, with strong guitar and groovy organ, very much in a Booker T & The MGs mode! The tracks groove along with a sound that's more Stax than Hi – which is ok by us, as the feel is nicely raw and raunchy! Titles include "Morning After", "Buster Browne", "Poinciana", "Twine Time", "Apple Jack", and "Wiggle Rock", "Fever", "Woodchopper's Bal" and more. CD

Modern Jazz QuartetLegendary Profile ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
A cool 70s album from the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one that has John Lewis playing a bit of electric piano, in addition to his usual acoustic keys! At some level, it almost feels like the group's working off the lessons learned during their Apple Records years – and are also picking up some elements of Milt Jackson's work on other projects in the late 60s – as the record has a soulful groove you might not normally expect from the MJQ, and less of the more academic tones that had marked some of their earlier 60s recordings for Atlantic. Tunes are really nicely focused, but still have that strong sense of space and sound that's the Lewis' hallmark – and Jackson's nicely-pointed vibes sound really great next to Lewis' keys, whether acoustic or electric. Titles include "The Legendary Profile", "Valeria", "Misty Roses", "The Martyr", and "What Now My Love". CD

Matt MonroStranger In Paradise – The Lost New York Sessions ... CD
Capitol/Universal (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $6.99 21.99
Wonderful work from British singer Matt Monro – early sessions for Capitol Records, done in the US – and maybe not entirely "lost", but very different here than in the way they were released! The backings here are small and jazzy – really showing Monro in an intimate mode that suits his vocals well – although producer Dave Cavanaugh at Capitol then later added bigger arrangements and strings, and sent this one off to market as the album Invitation To Broadway. Those original stripped-down session are presented here for the first time ever, along with a few unissued tracks, and later unreleased alternates too – and although many of the songs are from shows, they're a very well-chosen bunch, and move between tunes that have a slight bossa rhythm, and others that have a laidback jazz style with some nicely tinkling piano. Tracks include "Lover's Caravan", "Come Back To Me", "The Apple Tree", "If She Walked Into My Life", "I'll Only Miss Her When I Think Of Her", "Looking For Small Pleasures", "The Lady Smiles", "Walking Happy", and "The Impossible Dream". CD 2 is a great bonus – 27 more tracks from Matt's years at Capitol – titles that include "Don't Answer Me", "Honey On The Vine", "We're Gonna Change The World", "And You Smiled", "If I Never Sing Another Song", "Walk Away", "My Kind Of Girl", "Gonna Build A Mountain", "Softly As I Leave You", "From Russia With Love", "The Music Played", and "On Days Like These. 47 tracks in all!

Kudu/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 32.99
A great late 70s chapter in the career of funky drummer Idris Muhammad – moving into very different territory here than his early soul jazz with Lou Donaldson, and even his earliest solo material too! David Matthews arranged the tracks, and he's given them a slick but soulful sound, with lots of spacey fusion elements, and a nice funky soul vibe that's a bit similar to some of Larry Mizell's work – stretched out in this great mix of grooves and deeper jazzier elements – even at a level that's hipper than Matthews' usual material from the time. Idris is at the core on percussion – and the lineup also includes Jeremy Steig on flute, Eric Gale on guitar, Randy Brecker on trumpet, and Wilbur Bascomb on bass – and titles include the seminal "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This", plus "Cambay Bolongo", "Tasty Cakes", "Crab Apple", "Moon Hymn", and "Say What".

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99 29.98
Rare work from a very unique chapter in the career of baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan – his larger Concert Jazz Band – an ensemble that really helped flesh out some of the ideas he'd explored previously with smaller combos! The group recorded a few albums for Verve in the early 60s, but this 3CD package presents never-heard performances recorded in Paris during the same time – very fitting, given that the "concert" in the group's name was a reference to their ability to improvise amidst structure – of which you'll hear plenty here, with a lineup that includes Zoot Sims on tenor and Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone. The tracks are very well-recorded, and many are quite long – with titles that include "Blueport", "Utter Chaos", "Spring Is Sprung", "Five Brothers", "Black Nightgown", "Eighteen Carrots For Rabbit", "Out Of This World", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", "Apple Core", and "Barbara's Theme".

Evolution/Sunbeam (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $38.99 42.98
The lasting classic from Raw Material – a great little record captured at the crossroads of psych and prog, with a wonderful sound that even moves past both of those styles! At one level, the album's a tripped-out batch of heavy rock tunes – complete with vocals, fuzzy guitar, and lots of long-haired attitude. At another level, though, the record's got lots of light jazzy flourishes, especially on some of the smaller instrumental cuts, which features mellow work on keyboards, vibes, flute, and percussion. These cuts really make the album great – as they have sort of a "Folk Funk Experience" sound, sophisticatedly funky, and nicely laidback. Titles include "Pear On An Apple Tree", "Time & Illusion", "I'd Be Delighted", "Future Recollections", and "Bobo's Party". 2LP pressing features lots of bonus tracks – 16 more numbers in all – including "Sympathy", "Badge", "Second Generation Woman", "Traveller Man", "Race With The Devil", and "Living In The Past".

Shorter's accompanied by youthful modernists like James Spaulding on alto, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – plus the mighty Curtis Fuller on trombone, whose instrument here proves to be the same key extra ingredient that it was on the best Art Blakey sextet sessions of the 60s. There's a tight, soulful feel here that's sublime – an Adams Apple sort of groove, but a bit fuller – and titles include the classic "Tom Thumb", plus "Playground", "Schizophrenia", "Kryptonite", "Miyako", and "Go".

Kiyoshi SugimotoCountry Dream (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1970. Used Gatefold ... $34.99
Nothing "country" about this record – as Japanese guitarist Kiyoshi Sugimoto keeps things very hip and contemporary – working in a freely fluid style that also has a few funky touches as well! The group on the set is a quartet – with Kiyoshi's guitar amidst piano, bass, and drums – the last of which are played by Motohiko Hino with a nice little snap that brings a groove to the record, even when the tunes are long and open-ended. Sugimoto's got a richly chromatic way of playing the guitar that's really great – a sound that would have been very much at home on a Gary Burton album from the late 60s, but which comes across even better here in the wonderfully creative style of the session. Tracks are all longish, and titles include "D-51", "Limited Space", "Step Ahead", "The Apple", and "Country Dream". CD
