Sweet AppleSweet Apple ... LP
Columbia, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A bit funk, a bit rock, and a bit soul – Sweet Apple proudly followed in the tradition of similar Columbia acts like Sly & The Family Stone or The Chambers Brothers, although they never lasted long enough to get the fame of either of those groups. Most tracks have vocals, which are alright, but the real strength of the band lies in their instrumental ability – which is nice and funky on the best cuts, especially those with more instrumental moments. These include "Fonky McGregor" and "Sweet Apple Jam", both nice groovers with a messed-up funk sound. Other tracks include "I Can't Find My Way", "Sweet Apple", "Silly People", and "Power Of A Man".

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

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.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CDs ... $11.99
Another absolutely essential collection from Soul Jazz, this time out heading straight for the outer boroughs of the Bronx, Harlem, Brooklyn and Queens to document the fresh, fly, wild and bold rap tracks that rocked block parties and roller rinks from '79 on! 16 amazing tracks from the dawn of the hip hop age, seminal numbers over bouncing roller disco style grooves that'll have you digging out your Kangol, Cazals and that fat belt buckle with your initials on it. A few of these numbers are quite well known, but nearly impossible to get on vinyl, at least in their original format, but there's also a good dose of tracks culled from small indie 12"s that change hands for crazy money too. Plus the booklet is replete with loads of photos, great notes and interviews, and best of all, tons of reproductions of original flyers for parties and jams we can only wish we had the chance to attend! Includes "Spoonin' Rap" by Spoonie Gee, "Sure Shot" by Xanadu, "How We Gonna Make The Black Nation Rise" by Brother D, "Catch The Beat" by T Ski Valley, "Funk Box Party" by The Masterdon Committee, "Weekend" by the Cold Crush Brothers, "Big Apple Rappin'" by Spyder D, "Get The Party Jumpin" by Solo Sound, "When You're Standing On The Top" by the Super 3, "Are You Ready?" by TJ Swann, Peewee Mel & Barry B, and "The Ultimate Rap" by the Nice & Nasty 3.

The style of the album is subtle – mostly just spare piano backing behind Blossom's vocals – but the tunes are opened up with that magical vocal approach that's always made Blossom one of the most distinct singers of her time. Original tunes include "Love Is An Elusive Celebration", "Winchester In Apple Blossom Time", "Touch The Hand Of Love", "Sunday Afternoon", and "Sweet Surprise" – and contains versions of "Sammy", "It Amazes Me", "A Wonderful Guy", "Jazz Musician", and "The Wheelers & Dealers".

✨✧ Wayne Shorter5 Original Albums (Night Dreamer/Soothsayer/Etcetera/Adam's Apple/Schizophrenia) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
Five very different albums from the great Wayne Shorter – all from a time when he was really taking off with his music! Night Dreamer is one of the greatest Wayne Shorter albums for Blue Note, and one of our favorite jazz albums ever! The record is a masterpiece of lyrical delight – soul jazz mixed with slight touches of experimentalism – but still warm, swinging, and personal enough to captivate even the most novice jazz listener. A players are at the top of their game – and in addition to Shorter's tenor, the group features Lee Morgan on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The tracks unfold in lyrical, modal beauty in a really wonderful way that was barely ever duplicated again – and titles include "Night Dreamer", "Oriental Folk Song", "Virgo", "Charcoal Blues", "Armageddon", and "Black Nile". Soothsayer is a great Wayne Shorter session from the mid 60s – recorded then, but not issued until 1979, for some incredibly unexplained reason – especially given the strength of the set! The group is distinctly modern, and features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, James Spaulding on alto, and McCoy Tyner on piano – all of who were committed to heavily pushing the boundaries of their playing at the time. Added to the mix is the youthful Tony Williams on drums, fresh from work with Miles Davis, and playing with an incredibly free hand on the kit – plus the great Ron Carter on bass. The resulting mix of tracks is a beautiful example of how these mid-60s Blue Note sessions could keep firmly in touch with modern developments in jazz, yet never lapse into the kind of sloppiness that could sometimes ruin sets like these on other labels – always with a keen sense of timing and rhythm, and a sharpness that made Blue Note's "new" newer-sounding than most. Titles include "Lost", "Angola", "The Big Push", and an amazing jazz take on Sibelius' "Valse Triste"! Etcetera has a very sharp-edged quartet sound – a bit modern and edgey at times, with sharp tenor lines from Shorter, piano from Herbie Hancock, bass from Cecil McBee, and drums from Joe Chambers. Wayne recorded the date in 1965, but the material wasn't issued by Blue Note until 15 years later – a delay that somehow made the whole thing even more of a gem, especially at a time when Shorter wasn't blowing this strongly on record. Tracks include four originals "Toy Tune", "Penelope", "Etcetera", and "Barracudas" – plus the Gil Evans number "Barracudas (General Assembly)". Adams Apple is 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". Schizophrenia is a session from the late 60s that has Wayne Shorter pushing into a searching, spiritual groove, but one that's still filled with all the taught electricity of his earlier recordings on Blue Note! 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", "Schizoprhenia", "Kryptonite", "Miyako", and "Go".

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".

BeatlesBeatles – The White Album ... LP
Apple, 1968. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
The Beatles at their late best – on 1968's self-titled set – now immortalized as The White Album! The White Album capped offed a period of intense creativity for the band with a double that's as freewheeling as anything they'd ever release. It's got raw rockers with wry lyricism, tender acoustic balladry, psych blues jams and some flat out weird bits. As was always the case, John's and Paul's songs cover the majority of the sides, but The White Album also features what's arguably George's most vital moment as a Beatle with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Other tracks include "Back InThe USSR", "Dear Prudence","Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", "Happiness Is A Warm Gun", "Martha My Dear", "Rocky Raccoon", "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Julia", "Yer Blues", "Sexy Sadie", "Helter Skelter", "Revolution 1", Good Night" and more.

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".

George HarrisonElectronic Sound ... LP
Apple, 1969. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A real oddity from George Harrison – a record of abstract electronics, cut right around the same time as his bigger mainstream solo hits! The record is a highly experimental one – a session that has Harrison working with Bernie Krause, and exploring territory that's much more in the late 60s Limelight Records mode than it is that of Apple – which is quite possibly why the label is listed as "Zapple", not "Apple"! Each tune takes up a full side of the album – and builds slowly out of soundshapes and textures, very much in the manner of some of the best work from the academic electronic music centers in the US at the time. And while the album may be a bit loose and unfocused overall, it's actually got a really appealing quality that we love a lot – a sense of free and naive exploration that's pretty great.

Apple, 1971. Very Good ... $19.99
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon! The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the album are. It must be the most consistent of John's LPs post-Beatles, and it's 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. Includes "Give Me Some Truth", "Oh My Love", "How Do You Sleep?", "Imagine", "Crippled Inside", "Jealous Guy" and "I Don't Want To Be A Soldier". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the weirdest, most experimental albums ever from John Lennon and Yoko Ono – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the nature of their other music! The set's got a cover and title that might make you expect more conventional modes – after all, everyone is familiar with the concept of a wedding album – but instead, the whole thing's a wonderful freakout that almost makes "Revolution Number 9" from the White Album feel like a pop single! The record features two side-long tracks – each very open and almost like performance art – "John & Yoko", which features lots of analogue electronics, and the couple shouting each others' names in this way that's surprisingly moving – and "Amsterdam", which is a longer songform, with surprisingly beautiful vocals from Yoko!

The incredible solo debut of Paul McCartney – and a record that already leaps ahead from The Beatles in so many amazing ways! There's an up-close, intimate vibe to some of these songs that's really amazing – a sense of happiness that Paul never seemed to have in the Beatles' later years – mixed with some other witty twists and turns that expose a side of his songwriting that would only blossom even more in years to come! McCartney handles all instruments and vocals – but Linda also joins in on harmonies – and it's that sense of harmony between the two of them that really guides the record's spirit.

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". LP, Vinyl record album

MortimerOn Our Way Home (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Apple/RPM (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
The long-overdue second album from Mortimer – a US trio who were signed to Apple Records during the late 60s, but never fully got their due, thanks to all the famous difficulties of that Beatles-owned label! The group are in a nicely acoustic setting here – one that's neither folksy, or too rootsy – and which instead gets some nice sweetening from later arrangements by Richard Hewson, used to color in their sound with these gentle currents that really buoy up the spirit of the trio! There's a touch of harmonies on the vocals, and this sing-songy approach that almost recalls Alzo & Udine at times – a match that we'd definitely make in terms of the album's sophistication and subtle sense of darkness. The album was never issued by Apple back in the day, and would have become a sought-after classic if it was – and titles include a great version of the Lennon & McCartney tune "On Our Way Home", plus the originals "Miles Apart", "You Do Too", "I Didn't Know", "In Memory Of Her", and "Don't Want To See You Anymore". CD features bonus tracks – "Christine Tildsley", "Ingenue's Theme", "Laugh Children Laugh", and "Last Of The H". CD

Yoko OnoApproximately Infinite Universe (2CD limited edition) ... CD
Apple/Ryko, 1973. Used 2CD ... $14.99
Maybe one of the first truly tuneful moments from Yoko Ono – working here with backing from the Elephants Memory group – on a double-length set that shows a really great range from the singer! Yoko's vocals are fragile and sometimes a bit strained in the traditionally structured song mode –but so were Nico's and Marianne Faithful's – both artists we'd almost reference for the nature of this work! The set's a surprisingly pleasant effort from a misunderstood artist who just 2 years earlier was shrieking like a feral beast – and titles include "Yang Yang", "Death Of Samantha", "I Want My Love To Rest Tonight", "What Did I Do", "What A Bastard The World Is", "I Felt Like Smashing My Face In A Clear Glass Window", and "Is Winter Here To Stay".

Yoko OnoFly ... LP
Apple, Early 70s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Pretty wild work from Yoko Ono – a mixture of straight rock tunes and some very experimental numbers, a few of which sound so much like New York No Wave tunes from a decade later that we have to admit we're pretty darn shocked! In fact, we'd dare say the record's better than anything recorded around 1980 by artists like DNA or Lydia Lunch – or 2 decades later by the Boredoms or Deerhoof – and a bit more challenging, too! Titles include "Telephone Piece", "Fly", "Mind Holes", "Don't Worry Kyoko", "Mrs Lennon", "Toilet Piece", and "Mindtrain". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PrestonEncouraging Words ... CD
Apple (UK), 1970. Used ... $11.99
One of Billy's better albums from the time – produced by George Harrison, with a rough rootsy spiritual sound that reminds us of material on Let It Be. There's more than a bit of rock on the album – and there's a churchy feeling that sounds a lot like the hippie religiosity that Harrison was putting down himself at the time. You hear this most on the album's versions of "My Sweet Lord" (wonder if Billy got sued too?) and "All Things Must Pass" – but there's plenty of other tracks with a similar feel, like "Let The Music Play", "I've Got A Feeling", "Right Now", "Use What You Got", and "Right Now".

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)".

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".

Apple, 1968. New Copy 4LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The Beatles at their late best – on a self-titled set that's been long immortalized as The White Album! The White Album capped offed a period of intense creativity for the band, with a double set that's as freewheeling as anything they'd ever release. It's got raw rockers with wry lyricism, tender acoustic balladry, psych blues jams and some flat out weird bits. As was always the case, John's and Paul's songs cover the majority of the sides, but The White Album also features what's arguably George's most vital moment as a Beatle with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Other tracks include "Back InThe USSR", "Dear Prudence","Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", "Happiness Is A Warm Gun", "Martha My Dear", "Rocky Raccoon", "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Julia", "Yer Blues", "Sexy Sadie", "Helter Skelter", "Revolution 1", Good Night" and more. Deluxe 2018 4LP anniversary LP – with a new stereo mix of the original double album, plus 2 more LPs with the Esher demos – all on 180 gram vinyl.

Apple/Secretly Canadian, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest, most experimental albums ever from John Lennon and Yoko Ono – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the nature of their other music! The set's got a cover and title that might make you expect more conventional modes – after all, everyone is familiar with the concept of a wedding album – but instead, the whole thing's a wonderful freakout that almost makes "Revolution Number 9" from the White Album feel like a pop single! The record features two side-long tracks – each very open and almost like performance art – "John & Yoko", which features lots of analogue electronics, and the couple shouting each others' names in this way that's surprisingly moving – and "Amsterdam", which is a longer songform, with surprisingly beautiful vocals from Yoko! This is a beautiful box set pressing – just like the original version, with souvenirs of the wedding included. LP, Vinyl record album

Adams and Knepper head up a soulful group that features Wynton Kelly on piano (and a bit of organ!), Doug Watkins on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The real charm, though, is from Adams' solos, which are in that perfect gutbuckety mode that he could hit when he wanted to – a deep, dark drink the best tone the bari could offer, never getting clumsy at all, thanks to some lively rhythm playing. It's another one of those amazing sets recorded on a single date in NYC! Titles include "Minor Catastrophe", "Riverside Drive", All Too Soon", "Beaubien, "Primrose Path", and "Adams In The Apple".

Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a level that makes the album a head-nodding gem all the way through – poised perfectly between some of the more psyche styles of the African scene of the time, and some of the more thoughtful singer-songwriter material. The group have a quality that's surprisingly deep – very soulful, and with a subtle power that comes through strongly – thanks to a mostly-English batch of lyrics (although a few tunes here are in their native Bemba.) No cuts are all-out funky, but all have this great slow-funk sort of charm – and titles include "I Am Very Far", "Sunday Morning", "Khala My Friend", "Green Apple", "Africa", "Making The Scene", "Easy Street", "Big Enough" and "Kale".

Alice CooperPretties For You ... LP
Straight/Warner, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
Pre-shock rock psychedelia from Alice Cooper – more of a Detroit-reared answer to early Pink Floyd than it is a clue to the early metal horror show to come – and a record that stands stunningly well on its own! Since most people never even heard Pretties For You until long after Alice became a notorious rock star – which has made it unfairly judged in most circles – because if you enter it fresh, and take it for what it is, the whole thing's an incredible record that stands with some of the more revolutionary British albums of the late 60s. We hear rare psychedelia by the bucketful that's not nearly as good as this album, but which celebrated by rare psych diggers purely for its obscurity – and the overall presentation and performance is right up there with some of the coolest material on Harvest or Vertigo. Titles include "10 Minutes Before The Worm", "Sing Low Sweet Cheerio", "Reflected", "Apple Bush", "Earwigs To Eternity", "Titanic Overture", and "No Longer Umpire". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

The songs are as creatively distinct as anything every put forth by Morrissey and The Smiths – but in a very unique sort of way, with the guidance of mainman Lawrence firmly guiding the sound with his vocals amidst the wonderful songswirl of Hammond organ and guitar.

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".

Atlantic, 1959. Very Good ... $1.99
Proof that Woody Herman kept on burning hard, long after the 40s – continuing to work in great new modes, with the best players he could find! There's a touch of 60s grooviness to the record – mixed with some older California modes – and the lineup features massive tenor work from Zoot Sims, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca – all of whom really know how to soar out of the larger group when needed, yet come together with that tightness that made Herman famous, back in the day! More modern touches come from Victor Feldman on vibes and piano, and Charlie Byrd on guitar – adding a nice dimension not always heard with the earlier Herman group. The live setting allows for some sweet longer numbers with more solo space – like "Monterey Apple Tree" and "Like Some Blues Man" – as well as some shorter tight numbers in the band's ensemble style – like "The Magpie", "Skoobeedoobee", and a reading of "Four Brothers".

A great little side project from three members of the legendary Soil & Pimp Sessions combo – pianist Josei, bassist Akita, and drummer Midorin – hence the JAM name of the group! These guys may have the structure of a jazz piano trio, but their sound is something quite different – very funky right from the start, as you'd expect from the S&P legacy – but also much more stripped-down than that previous group, with a similar mix of funk and jazz as Japanese groups like Indigo Jam Unit and early work by Quasimode! There's definitely plenty of jazz in the mix, but the core rhythm is equally important – and these guys have a lot more soul and depth than some of the "pretty boy" trios on the Japanese market of light, whose music is maybe a bit more flighty. Titles include "Foundation", "Totally Disorder", "Dancer On The Black Keys", "Alternative War", "Manchester", "Bell", and "Apple's Waltz". CD

Capitol, 1973. Very Good ... $8.99
The great John Lennon album from 1973 – still in an exhilaratingly creative mode with strong Plastic Ono traces, even if the overall effect is more mainstream friendly – ultimately, an album that stands incredibly well on its own, even if its something of a bridge to John's rock and roll years to come! The songs aren't as overtly strident as the ones on Sometime In New York City, but there's plenty of passion bubbling under the surface – and the struggle to be as honest and passionate as he can be without bludgeoning us over the head with his feelings brings an underlying tension the work as whole that's pretty amazing to this day. Includes the great, always emotionally resonant title track plus "Bring On The Lucie", "Nutopian International Anthem", "Intuition", "You Are Here", "Meat City", and "I Know I Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(Apple pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

Idris MuhammadTurn This Mutha Out ... CD
Kudu/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
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".

Gerry MulliganPresenting The Gerry Mulligan Sextet ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Good+ ... $2.99
A strong 50s session from Gerry – a bit like some of his work for the Pacific Jazz label, but perhaps a bit more biting and modern. The group's a sextet with Jon Eardley on trumpet, Zoot Sims on tenor, Dave Bailey on drums, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, and Peck Morrison on bass – and titles include "Nights At The Turntable", "Mud Bug", "Bernie's Tune", and "Apple Core". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Doris NortonPersonal Computer (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Durium/Mannequin (Germany), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
There's a very 80s-looking font on the cover, and the music has a very 80s-sounding vibe as well – very much in the mix of Apple computers and Roland keyboards pictured in the photo! The grooves are very home-grown – part electro-soul, partly in a mode that resonates with 80s keyboard soundtracks, particularly the horror variety – and tracks are tight and very tuneful throughout! Titles include "Personal Computer", "Norton Apple Software", "Binary Love", and "Parallel Interface". LP, Vinyl record album

OrbHistory Of The Future Part 2 ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2015. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A collection of work that The Orb mostly recorded in the first decade of the 21st Century – a time when they were nicely breaking free of some of the cliches that had crept into their work the decade before, and were using their core sound in a whole host of unusual ways! The package features a mix of instrumentals and vocal tracks – the latter of which feature some especially nice work by Aki Omori at a few moments – and the interesting thing is the way the group mixes more experimental moments with tracks that move in a more organic way. Titles include "Pebbles", "The Orbots Surround The Trojan Horse", "Angel 4 Matrix", "Baghdad Batteries", "Oopa", "Edelgrun", "Glen Coe", "Gee Strings", "Aftermath", "Tower Twenty Three (Spud vs Kreature mix)", "DDD (unit 1 mad orb)", "Vuja De", "Golden Clouds (Ocho rmx)", "Ripples", "Ball Of Fire (Dabrye rmx)", "Soulman (Villod rmx)", "From a Distance (Blast Master vs The Corpral)", "Apple Tree (Abacus rmx)", "Shen Version)", "Sail", "Cool Harbour", and "Fussball (Deadbeat's champion league dub)".

Cecil Payne, Phil Woods, & OthersNight At The Five Spot – The Music Of Charlie Parker ... LP
Signal, 1957. Very Good- ... $199.99
A really well done memorial to the (then) recently-departed Charlie Parker – cut with an unusual lineup that features Cecil Payne on baritone sax, Phil Woods on alto, and Frank Socolow on tenor – all working through long, laidback takes of 4 of Bird's best known compositions! There's a really relaxed feel to the record that's totally great – and the players aren't so much aping the sound of Charlie Parker's work, as they are working in the newer freedoms allows by it – stretching out in freely creative lines that never fail to please, and working here with a rhythm section that includes Duke Jordan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The album was recorded live at the Five Spot – and titles include "Parker's Mood", "Steeplechase", "Buzzy", and "Scrapple From The Apple". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove, with RVG stamp and AB etch. Vinyl plays with crackles towards the beginning of Side A, the rest plays well. Cover looks great, lightly aged but still nice and sharp.)

Perez PradoMambo Mania ... LP
RCA, 1955. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Jazzy mambos from the king – and easily the most successful of Perez Prado's albums for RCA in the 50s! The album showcases the Latin mode that Prado crossed over big with on his hit "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White" – a tune that almost single-handedly grabbed the energy and audiences of the late swing years, and grafted them onto the growing New York Latin scene of the time! Prado's got that great growl in his chants, as usual – pushing the band to even more rhythmic heights and brassy horn flourishes with his trademark calls – and titles include the classic "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White", as well as tracks like "Tomcat Mambo", "Mambo Ala Kenton", "The High & The Mighty", "Marilyn Monroe Mambo", and "Skokiaan".

Prince JammyPrince Jammy In Lion Dub Style ... LP
Jammy's/VP, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 16.98
We're not sure what "lion style" is, but we can definitely say that the album's heavy on dub – a darkly bubbling masterpiece with Prince Jammy at the controls – crafting his magic to grooves by a top-shelf set of Kingston musicians! Winston Wright plays lots of keyboards – organ, clavinet, and even some harpsichord – and the real energy of the rhythms come from the young Sly & Robbie – very much in their prime here, without some of those later modes when they were trying to recopy themselves for the mainstream. Chinna Smith throws in lots of riffing guitar to the echoey brilliance – and titles include "No Bride", "Jammy's In The Arena", "Black Trap", "The Big Apple", "Rough Voyage", "Uhru Express", "King Forever", "Tiger Dub" and "Mystic Feelings".

George RussellNew York, New York ... LP
Decca, 1958. Very Good+ ... $33.99
A wonderful album from George Russell – and a refreshing change from his overly-academic modernist work! The session's an unusual one – a musical portrait of New York City, performed with an all-star cast that includes John Coltrane, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Phil Woods, Benny Golson, Max Roach, and Hal McKusick – all working together to paint tones on the tunes that George has crafted to set up his scene of New York in the 50s. Most importantly, though, Jon Hendricks acts as the narrator of the album – talking and scatting in hipster mode, laying out a bit of beat rapportage about the Big Apple, all done in a very cool 50s style that's a bit different from his own vocal work. Titles include "Manhattan", "Big City Blues", "Manhattan-Rico", and "A Helluva Town". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittSonny Stitt Sits In With The Oscar Peterson Trio ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good- ... $39.99
Sonny Stitt makes Oscar Peterson sit up and groove! The record's a great one, and uses the Peterson Trio as a perfect rhythm section for Sonny's confidently blown solos of the late 50s – in a way that pushes the combo past their usual safe area, and into more freewheeling territory to keep up with Stitt's sense of power and invention! The tunes on the set are every bit as great as those on Sonny's own albums as a leader for Verve – crisp, clear, and perfectly blown – a masterpiece of subtle creativity and one of the greatest tones to ever emerge from the saxophone! Titles include "Au Privave", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Moten Swing", and "Easy Does It". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, a few spots of tape, and some surface wear.)

StrangelovesI Want Candy (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Bang/Real Gone, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
An all-out party rock classic – a record that's titled after the one huge hit by The Strangeloves, but which has killer cuts throughout – a set that's filled with heavily percussive, hard-jamming numbers that really keep the pace moving! The group seems to use a lot more bass drum than most of their contemporaries – a whomping bottom that gives them a lot more power than a trio – and mixed with their trademark rasping guitar sound, the result is something fantastic! There's a lot of heavy power to the set – a standout even from some of the other Australian acts of the period – and the chanted lyrics make the tunes even more compelling. Includes their huge hit "I Want Candy", plus "Night Time", "Just The Way You Are", "It's About My Baby", "No Jive", and "Cara Lin". LP, Vinyl record album

Ira Sullivan & Stu KatzFamily Affair – Live At Joe Segal's Jazz Showcase ... CD
Origin, 2011. Used ... $6.99
A great little showcase for some truly legendary jazz lifers – Ira Sullivan and Stu Katz – collaborators of more than a half century doing their thing wonderfully over a handful of dates at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago in the summer of '10! This is literally a Family Affair, that ain't just a title – with Stu's son Steve Katz producing, playing bass on one number, and given credit for documenting the fellas at this stage of the game. Sullivan's on saxes, trumpet and fluegelhorn, Katz is on vibes most of the way, but sits at the piano for "Pennies From Heaven". Dan Trundel is also on piano, with Dennis Carroll on bass and George Fludas on drums. Includes "Blues Two Views", "Gee, Matthew", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Take The 'A' Train", "Yesterdays" featuring vocals by Lucia Newell, "Stablemates", "Lullaby Of The Leaves" and more. CD

TrammpsLegendary Zing Album (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Buddah/Elemental (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The first full album cut by The Trammps – and a landmark bit of Philly club sounds! The group had already been grooving the burgeoning east coast disco scene for years, which is why the album's called The Legendary Zing Album (the group's version of "Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart" was a big early hit, and supposedly led people to ask for a "Zing" album.) The whole thing's got a massive Harris-Baker-Young sound – with that sweet groove that the trio were pioneering in Philly, a mixture of small combo grooving with strings added in at just the right points. The Trammps themselves add in some great harmonies – never overwhelmed by the full sound of the grooves, singing very much in a Spinners mode on cuts like "Pray All You Sinners", "Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart", "Rubber Band", and "Hold Back The Night". The album also features two great instrumentals – "Tom's Song" and "Penguin At The Big Apple" – both of which have that sweeeeet Norman Harris guitar! LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods QuartetPhil Talks With Quill (Jazz Odyssey pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Very Good+ ... $1.99
An incredible meeting of two vastly underrated alto talents! Phil Woods got plenty of opportunities to record as a leader in the 50s, but altoist Gene Quill was often buried in bigger groups – a fact that makes this album one of the few chances to really hear him shine! Woods and Quill work together beautifully throughout – playing boppishly, but also in a more relaxed groove – one that's a bit like Phil's excellent Warm Woods session for Epic from the same stretch, but perhaps a bit more upbeat overall. The twin-alto sound is really great – especially on the tunes that have them soaring together on the heads, then splitting off on solos with amazing dexterity and real dynamic range. Other players include Bob Corwin on piano, Sonny Dallas on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and although the pair recorded an earlier session for RCA a few years before, this one's far superior! Titles include "Doxy", "Scrapple From the Apple", "Hymn For Kim", and "Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album

A really cool set that looks at the rise of late 50s beatnik culture from a variety of different styles – not just the jazz and poetry that marked that scene's biggest contribution to music – but also the wealth of modes that inspired those years too! The 3CD package features a stunning 57 titles in all – and begins in the late 30s with hard-edged small combo work and jive-heavy vocal tracks – then runs past WWII to include some bebop, R&B, and very cool vocal numbers – before moving into Greenwich Village classic sounds in a mix of spoken word, jazz poetry, and even a bit of folk! The booklet is filled with notes and history in both English and French – and titles include "The Beat Generation" by Bob McFadden, "High School Drag" by Phillipa Fallon, "The Nazz" by Lord Buckley, "American Haikus" by Jack Kerouac & Al Cohn, "Route 66" by Bobby Troup, "Gator Tail (part 2)" by Cootie Williams, "Rock & Roll" by Wild Bill Moore, "Killin Jive" by Cats & The Fiddle, "You'se A Viper" by Stuff Smith, "Scrapple From The Apple" by Les Double Six, "Kookie's Mad Pad" by Ed Byrnes, "So What" by Eddie Jefferson, "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg, "I Sing Of Olaf" by Roger Steffans, "Say Man" by Bo Diddley, "Shulie A Bop" by Sarah Vaughan, and "The Rocket Ship Show" by Jocko Henderson.

✨✧ AmanazAfrica (with bonus download) ... LP
Now Again, 1975. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a level that makes the album a head-nodding gem all the way through – poised perfectly between some of the more psyche styles of the African scene of the time, and some of the more thoughtful singer-songwriter material. The group have a quality that's surprisingly deep – very soulful, and with a subtle power that comes through strongly – thanks to a mostly-English batch of lyrics (although a few tunes here are in their native Bemba.) No cuts are all-out funky, but all have this great slow-funk sort of charm – and titles include "I Am Very Far", "Sunday Morning", "Khala My Friend", "Green Apple", "Africa", "Making The Scene", "Easy Street", "Big Enough" and "Kale". 2LP edition features both versions of the album that were released – one a heavy drums mix, the other a more fuzzy guitar mix!
