Gil Scott-HeronRevolution Will Not Be Televised (BMG pressing) ... LP
BMG, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An 80s collection, but one that's filled with gems from Gil Scott-Heron's legendary early years at Flying Dutchman – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever! The music's a hip mix of protest poetry and sweet jazzy numbers – played with great keyboard accompaniment from frequent partner Brian Jackson on nearly every track – plus help from Hubert Laws on flute and sax, and Bernard Purdie on drums. Titles include "Pieces of a Man", "Lady Day & John Coltrane", "Whitey on the Moon", "The Needle's Eye", "Home is Where the Hatred Is", "Did You Hear What They Said?", the title cut, and many many more great ones.

✨✧ Arnaldo AntunesUm Som ... CD
BMG/Ariola (Brazil), 1998. Used ... $1.99
Compelling stuff by this modern Brazilian singer – and an album that features a haunting blend of electronica and guitar pop, backing up songs written by Antunes, Jorge Benjor, Junior Murvin, Cassiano, and Carlinhos Brown. Titles include "Pare O Crime", "Musica Para Ouvir", "Cinzas", "Socorro", and "Fim Do Dia". Nice production, with a strange mix of styles that explores territory covered earlier by Chico Science. CD

Smooth set of bossa cuts performed by this legendary Brazilian drummer – all of which were written by either Jobim, Chico Buarque, and Vinicius De Moraes. The sound is mellow and groovy, with a bit more of an electric touch than on his 60's LPs. Cuts include "Chega De Saudade", "Corcovado", "Ate O Fim", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Wave", "Aqua De Beber", and "Regra Tres". CD

Gato BarbieriYesterdays ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BMG (France), 1974. Used ... $18.99
A beautiful record from Gato Barbieri – almost a return to more traditional forms, but still graced with the searching, burning quality that made most of his early 70s sides so great! The tracks are all long and exploratory – and have Gato blowing with that tremendous tenor tone – a mix of late Coltrane and Pharoah, with some warmer, sentimental touches that really send us. The rest of the group includes George Dalto on electric and acoustic piano, Pretty Purdie on drums, and Paul Metzke on guitar – and most of the tracks feature added Latin percussion – not too much, but just the right amount to make them bounce along in a rhythmic groove. Totally great all the way through, and with tracks that include "Carinoso", "Marnie", "A John Coltrane Blues", and "Yesterdays". CD

✨✧ Chico BuarqueChico Buarque Ao Vivo Paris – Le Zenith ... CD
BMG, 1990. Used ... $2.99
Live work by Chico Buarque – a surprisingly nice set overall, and a great demonstration of the way the energy of his live albums almost took over force from his studio sets at this point in his career! The double-length performance features some great musical direction from Cristovao Bastos – and mixes together some of Chico's more upbeat modes with other tunes that have a moodier feel, quite spare, dark, and somber – touching on a side of Chico that's not always heard in studio work from the time! Titles include "Vai Passar", "O Que Sera", "Joao E Maria", "Rio 42", "Todo O Sentimento", "Partido Alto", "Desalento", and "A Rita". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 42 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese! The whole thing's sort of an update of the old Abril Cultural style of the 70s – brought into the CD generation. CD

Diahann CarrollDiahann Caroll Sings Harold Arlen Songs ... CD
RCA/BMG (Spain), 1957. Used ... $14.99
Diahann Carroll gets some classy backings here – arrangements from Ralph Burns that really make these tunes come alive! Carroll's vocals are always great, but they seem to sparkle even more here than on other early albums – as Burns' backings feature unusual instrumentation and odd phrasing, which helps make the set way more than just another Harold Arlen songbook session. Sometimes the strings are dark and moody, and other nice bits include vibes and guitar – all helping to pull new energy out of tunes that include "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "A Sleeping Bee", "My Shining Hour", and "What's Good About Goodbye".

Johnny CashBear's Sonic Journals – Live At The Carousel Ballroom – April 24, 1968 ... LP
BMG, 1968. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 32.98
Rare live work from Johnny Cash – recorded right at the height of his late 60s fame on Columbia Records, but with a style that nicely takes his sound back to its roots! June Carter joins Cash at a few points in the performance – but most of the set jus has Johnny working with the Tennessee Three, in that spare chugging groove the group first developed when Cash was starting to record at Sun Records – presented here in a nicely unfettered way, as a contrast to some of his studio work for Columbia during the same period. The set's got 28 tracks in all – a nice mix of classics and other numbers – with titles that include "Bad News", "Jackson", "Long Black Veil", "Lorena", "Old Apache Squaw", "Guess Things Happen That Way", "Going To Memphis", "Orange Blossom Special", "Forty Shades Of Green", "Don't Take Your Guns To Town", "Ring Of Fire", "Long Legged Guitar Pickin Man", "Foggy Mountain Top", and "Wildwood Flower".

Double ExposureTen Percent (green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Salsoul/BMG, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful album – one of those underground classics that seems to show up in everyone's record collection, even though it was never a huge chart hit. Double Exposure are part of the "second wave" of East Coast vocal groups – and like their contemporaries, they mix the sweet harmony soul tradition of earlier years with the burgeoning clubby sound that was coming out of Philly. The set's produced by the Baker/Harris/Young team – who also play on the album along with the rest of the Sigma Sound crew – and the songs feature some stunning anthemic club numbers, plus a few surprisingly sweet harmony tunes. Includes their huge cut "Ten Percent", the amazing positivist groover "Everyman" – and the cuts "My Love Is Free", "Gonna Give My Love Away", and "Just Can't Say Hello". LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony HamiltonLove Is The New Black (gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
BMG, 2021. New Copy 2LP ... $33.99 34.98
Anthony Hamilton's got a very classic look on the cover – and he definitely turns in a classic set here – the kind of righteous, well-crafted soul record that really takes us back to the golden age of the 70s! And yet, the music's not retro at all – it's very contemporary in both soul and spirit, just maybe a maturation of everything that Anthony's been giving us over the years – really knocked out of the park here, with a sense of confidence and power that we never would have guessed at the start of Hamilton's career – and trust us, we sure liked those records a lot! The set features guest appearances from Rick Ross and Lil Jon – and titles include "White Hennessy", "Coming Home", "You Made A Fool Of Me", "Mama Don't Cry", "Safe", "Mercy", "Threw It All Away", "I'm Ready", "Superstar", "I Thought We Were In Love", and "Love Is The New Black".

Pye/BMG, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $30.99 38.99
Excellent work by The Kinks – cut right on the cusp of their earlier bluesier years, and their perfect picture postcard pop sides of the late 60s! The album's got a number of groovy little tunes that virtually put the jangle in 60s pop – with impeccable writing by Ray Davies, and all those little twists and turns that make his songs so great. And the themes, styles, and overall presentation of the whole thing are really stretching out nicely – with a sense of wit and critique on British society that really have the group coming into their own! Titles include "Party Line", "Dandy", "Session Man", "Rainy Day In June", "Most Exclusive Residence For Sale", "Fancy", "You're Lookin Fine", and "Sunny Afternoon". LP, Vinyl record album

Lady BlackbirdBlack Acid Soul ... LP
BMG (UK), 2022. New Copy ... $23.99 39.99
Lady Blackbird takes on a Nina Simone tune on the very first track on this set – quite a risky move, but the Lady's got a voice that's definitely up to the challenge! The singer's the sort that comes along once in a blue moon – a richly talented artist who's able to take any sort of tune and make it her own – which she definitely does here with a surprisingly diverse array of material which comes across with a surprisingly unified vibe – in part because the instrumental approach is as compelling as the vocals – often with spare piano or keyboards, augmented by just a bit more in terms of rhythm – really leaving Lady Blackbird to dominate the record with a sense of long-burning power that never lets up. Titles include "Ruler Of My Heart", "Blackbird", "It's Not That Easy", "Black Acid Soul", "Fix It", "Five Feet Tall", "Lost & Looking", and "It'll Never Happen Again". LP, Vinyl record album

LedisiLedisi Sings Nina ... CD
BMG, 2021. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
We've loved the music of soul singer Ledisi since her first self-released album back in the 90s – and since that time, she's matured even more as a vocalist – to a point where she can easily take on the music of Nina Simone with all the glory it deserves! This special set features Ledisi singing with accompaniment from the Metropole Orkest and New Orleans Jazz Orchestra – each of whom bring a sense of fullness, but in different ways – as Ledisi stretches out the tunes with the kind of sophistication and richness that Nina might have done – but in a voice that's all her own. The set features guests appearances from Lizz Wright and Alice Smith – but Ledisi hardly needs them at all, as she's very firmly in the lead – on titles that include "Feeling Good", "Wild Is The Wind", "Work Song", "Four Women", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", and "I'm Going Back Home".

Michel LegrandConcert Legrand ... LP

A haunting set from French soundtrack maestro Michel Legrand – an obscure album of orchestral tunes from the mid 70s, handled with a lot more strings than you'd usually hear in his work, but in a way that comes off sounding delightful! Legrand has a talent for making any kind of setting swing, and he certainly shows that in this set – a moodily concocted batch of tracks that fit perfectly with his best soundtrack work of the time. There's a slight bit of electricity in some of the tracks, and the album features solo work by Phil Woods on alto, Derek Watkins on trumpet, and Don Lusher on trombone. Titles include "Pieces Of Dreams", "Sweet Gingerbread Man", "Christine", "Wonder Where I'll Be Tomorrow", "The Saddest Thing Of All", and "Happy". LP, Vinyl record album

LenineLenine In Cite – Ao Vivo (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 2004. Used ... $9.99
Incredible work from Lenine – easily his best album so far, and that's saying a lot, given the quality of the other sets! This one is landmark, though – the kind of record that seems to push Lenine even further into the stratosphere of MPB, recorded live and delivered with a depth that almost rivals the greatness of Caetano Veloso or Gilberto Gil during the 1970s! The set was recorded in Paris, where Lenine's found a very welcoming audience – and it's got a relaxed, intimate feel that's quite different than the tighter production of his studio albums. Instrumentation is a mix of electric and acoustic, mostly in a guitar-based mode – but there's a magically flowing sense of soul to the whole thing that's really sublime – the sort of perfect songwriting and delivery that grabs us instantly, even if we can't understand the full translations of the tunes. Consider this one global soul at its best – the kind of record that shows that boundaries can still be broken in the 21st century, even without clever tricks, gimmicks, or trashy marketing. A real delight all the way through – and one that really caught us by surprise! Titles include "Do It", "Ninguem Faz Ideia", "Todos Os Caminhos", "Sentimental", "Virou Areia", "Anna E Eu", "Rosebud", and "Vivo". CD

LenineNa Pressao ... CD

One of our favorite albums ever from groundbreaking Brazilian talent Lenine – a mad mix of soulful vocals, flanged-out guitars, rootsy percussion, and modern production with some slight amount of the kinds of sample influences being used by other modern Brazilians (like Carlinhos Brown or Arnaldo Antunes). The real difference, though, is Lenine's great guitar work – which strikes out through the mix in a haunting Beck-ish way. His voice is pretty darn great, too – with a deep richness that we haven't heard since Milton Nascimento or Djavan. The whole package is pretty darn nice – and tracks include "Arede", "Tubi Tupy", "Alzirae Torre", "Relampiano", "Eu Sou Meu Guia", and "Nao Pressao". CD

Great work from one of Brazil's best artists of the past 10 years! Lenine has a groundbreaking style that mixes acoustic guitar, soulful vocals, hard percussion, electronics, and modern rock into a pomo blend that sounds a heck of a lot better than our cliche-littered description. The record's got the instant appeal of the best work by Beck, but it's also not as in love with itself, and has kind of a head to the ground seriousness that makes us treat it with a bit more respect. Titles include "Etnia Caduca", "A Ponte", "O Marco Marciano", "Que Baque E Esse?"and "Dois Olhos Negros". CD

BMG, 1997. Used ... $11.99 14.99
Although the copyright on this CD says 1997, we've got a feeling that it's from an earlier time – judging by the look of Edu and Chico on the cover. The set's a haunting blend of the styles of these two masters of Brazilian music – with a full orchestra backing up the tracks, and a number of additional musicians added to give this a fairly serious concert sound. At points, the style of arranging is similar to Edu's fantastic Missa Breve LP, with lots of haunting vocal passages, and strident orchestral arrangments underpinned with Brazilian percussion. Chico's voice is in fine form, and the set list includes 17 tracks, with "Choro Bandido", "Valsa Brasileira", "Bancarrota Blues", "Meia-noite", "Sobre Todas As Coisa", and "Beatriz". Packaged in a nice slipcase, with a very cool booklet. CD

A great session by Carlos Lyra – recorded a few years after his bossa-era classics, but with a very similar feel! Carlos' vocals and guitar are as wonderful as ever – soft and gentle, with the right touch of sad emotion, but still the slight jazzy swing that's always made his work so great. The session was actually recorded in Mexico – and is one of Lyra's rarest albums – and in a way, the whole thing's even more unique than some of his better-known classics from earlier years!

The most interesting album we've ever heard from Daniela Mercury – an "electric carnival", recorded with help from Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, Lenine, and a host of guest DJs! In keeping with the title, the music on the set is kind of a remix-styled version of the traditional carnaval grooves – done in a mode that takes the already highly-percussive grooves, and kicks them up even more with some added dancefloor production – all of which is a perfect foil for Daniela's soulfully chanted lyrics on the set. There's more than a few extremely nice groovers on the set – and titles include "Quero Voltar Pra Bahia", "Preto E Branco", "Charles Yle", "O Canto Da Rainha", "Amor De Carnaval", "Maimbe Danda", and "Quero Ver O Mundo Sambar".

✨✧ Charles MingusTijuana Moods ... CD
RCA/BMG, 1957/1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Oh how we love this album – and we think it may well be the best album ever from Charles Mingus! The set was recorded in that magical Mingus year of 1957, but oddly not released until 1962 – missing some of the initial frenzy of his discovery during the Atlantic and Columbia years. But the album's actually a treasure that predates the better-known latter sides – with a sharpness and intensity that Mingus hardly ever matched again! The group is one of his strongest ever – with Shafi Hadi on alto, Clarence Shaw on trumpet, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and Bill Triglia on piano. There's a slight Latin vibe, as you might expect from the title – but it's very slight overall, and most of the tunes are in that sharply angular, fully expressive style that flowered most strongly for Mingus in the late 50s. There's not a wasted moment of music on the whole album – with tight solos and incredible rhythms that dominate every second of the extended tracks – and titles include "Dizzy Moods", "Flamingo", "Los Mariachis", "Ysabel's Tabel Dance", and "Tijuana Gift Shop".

Amina Claudine MyersAmina ... LP
Novus/BMG, 1988. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A pretty interesting change for this lovely lady of the AACM – as Amina Claudine Myers makes a shift towards more R&B-inflected jazz, working in equal parts vocals and piano with more electric instrumentation than you'd hear on some of her earlier albums. Although the move was kind of panned by some of Myers' more stalwart fans in the avant garde, years later the record actually sounds pretty great to our ears – kind of an 80s version of the sound that Patrice Rushen was trying for in hear earlier years at Prestige – soulful jazz mixed with a bit of vocals, and handled with touches that might make the work reach a wider audience. Some of the tracks sound a bit weak due to bad 80s keyboard work, but others sparkle with a warmth and soulfulness we hadn't noticed before. Titles include "BI", "Song From The West", "Happiness", "Keep On Loving", "Nolan", and "Nisamehe". LP, Vinyl record album

Tamba TrioBlack & Blue (aka Tamba – Luiz Eca/Bebeto/Helcio Milito) ... CD
Dear Heart/BMG (Japan), 1974. Used ... $19.99 24.99
A sublime 70s groover from the great Tamba Trio! This one works off of the expanded sound that the bossa jazz combo were forging on their late 60s work for CTI – adding in some more complicated arrangements by Luiz Eca to the regular piano/bass/percussion groove, pushing the sound into a more complicated groove that reminds us of the best 70s work of Edu Lobo. The tracks are wonderfully written – with a jazzy rhythm at the core of most of them – but the added washes of sound and color really flesh out the group's unique vision, and make the album one of their greatest ever! Titles include "Reflexos", "Mestre Bimba", "Ossaim", "Em Casa", "Morada", "Infinito", "Gazera", and "Nao Tem Nada Nao". Plus, the CD features the bonus tracks "Joga Da Vida", "Beira Mar", and "3 Horas Da Manha". CD

BMG, 1982. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
One of the catchiest early songs by The Virgin Prunes – a cut that captures the group at a time when they were still light enough in their approach – so that the track does a great job of mixing the vocals of Gavin Friday with some upbeat rhythms and plenty of spooky guitar lines and keyboards! The "vibeakimbo" remix is longer, with a nice breakdown in the middle – and the single also features the slower, spookier "Dave-Id Is Dead". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Hank WilliamsI'm Gonna Sing – The Mother's Best Gospel Radio Recordings ... CD
BMG, Early 50s. New Copy 2CDs ... $24.99 26.99
Hank Williams may be best known as a hard-living figure in early country music – one who put his heart on the line, and left the planet all too soo – but like most of his contemporaries, Hank also had a special ear for a spiritual tune – the kind of Sunday morning tracks that were often sung as redemption for the sins of Saturday night! That balance is crucial to country music, and maybe nobody struck it better than Williams – as you'll hear here in a set of recordings that were all pulled from his classic radio programs done for the Mother's Best Flour company! These are tracks that were never issued on record at the time – and while some of Hank's biggest hits are of the honky tonk variety, these cuts also show the way he had a different side of appeal to the plain folks out there in his audience too. The cuts here aren't sleepy church tunes – as Williams sings them with the kind of heartbreaking style he brought to his love songs other numbers – and the set features 40 classics from these rare recordings, served up here for the first time together!

Brazilian grooves from the past, present, and future – all selected by the folks at Favela Chic, one of Paris' hippest night spots! The selection of tunes shows the same sort of shift in Paris that's been happening in London and Tokyo lately – an interest in Brazilian music that's moved past just bossa nova and jazz, to encompass styles from a wide range of periods, including funky 70s samba, underground funk and soul, and current work by MPB artists. The package features 25 very fresh grooves – dating as far back as the 60s, and moving right up to the present – and titles include "Morte Da Sandalia De Couro" by Bebeto, "Alegria De Voces" by Jair Rodrigues, "Edmundo" by Elsa Soares, "Popozuda Rock & Roll" by De Falla, "Megamon" by Btutinha DJ, "Eu Sou Favela" by Bezerra Da Silva, "Eu Tambem Quero Mocoto" by Jorge Ben, "Vendedor De Bananas" by Os Increveis, and "Aquecimento De Capoeira" by A Coisona.

The debut album from Brazilian jazz singer Leny Andrade – a wonderful session that's equal part scatting vocals, samba jazz, and smoky ballads! Andrade was one of the few Brazilian singers to really get the sound of American jazz from the start – and works here in a style that has lots of traces of some of the Verve vocalists of the late 50s, but which also dances along with a strong component of Brazilian rhythm and instrumentation. Titles include the totally groovy "Sambop", plus "Un Amor Igual Ao Seu", "Nao Da Pe", "Aguas Paradas", "Filosofia", "Receita Para Esquecer", "Procurando Voce", and "Samba De Uma Nota So". CD

A collection of duets recorded by Chico Buarque during the 80s and 90s – warm extensions of musical friendship by one of Brazil's greatest singers of the past 40 years. Chico's always been supportive of singers in many generations – from the older artists who inspired him in the 60s, to younger talents he's encountered as his career has progressed. The set's a good overview of that support – and features a total of 14 tracks in all, including "Facamos" with Elza Soares, "Desalento" with Mestre Marcal, "Sem Voce" with Tom Jobim, "Dueto" with Nara Leao, "Ate Pensei" with Nana Caymmi, "Seu Chopin, Descumpe" with Johnny Alf, "Carcara" with Joao Do Vale, "Dinheiro Em Penca" with Miucha, "Nao Sonho Mais" with Elba Ramalho, and "Yolanda" with Pablo Milanes.

Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have helped out countless soul artists over the decades – real superproducers who emerged in the 80s to help the music find a whole new direction – stepping out here for the first time ever as artists on their own! Back in the day, Jam and Lewis added plenty of their own touches to key records – but here, the approach is foregrounded – and then topped with an array of famous guests – artists who include The Roots, Morris Day, Heather Headley, Babyface, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Mary J Blige, Sounds Of Blackness, and Toni Braxton! The presence of the guests, with Jam and Lewis at the center, is a great reminder of how important these guys are to the legacy of soul music – and after all these years, they still haven't lost their touch – as there's plenty of cuts here that show that their hitmaking power hasn't dimmed at all. Titles include "Spinnin", "Til I Found You", "He Don't Know Nothin Bout It", "Somewhat Loved", "Do It Yourself", "Babylove", and "Maybe I've Changed". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/BMG (France), 1959/1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 fab Mancini soundtracks on one CD! Mr Lucky may not be as famous as Peter Gunn, but one of Mancini's best soundtracks ever – and an equally great crime jazz TV set of tunes! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes you wish the track went on and on and on again. Other tunes include "Lightly Latin", "Tipsy", "One Eyed Cat", "Chime Time", and "March Of The Cue Balls", a Mancini classic if there ever was one! Mr Lucky Goes Latin is the same sort of groove – made even better! Mancini redoes the original show's music with a west coast Latin feel – which makes the great writing sound even better, and creates a lot of great rhythms for cool jazzy solos. The sound is light and groovy, the band's filled with some of the best Latin players Mancini could get to convey the mood – and has some nice touches to the instrumentation, including a bit of groovy organ! Tracks include "Mr. Lucky Goes Latin", "Blue Mantilla", "Siesta", "The Sound Of Silver", "The Dancing Cat", and "Cow Bells & Coffee Beans". CD

RCA/BMG (France), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 great Mancini soundtracks on one CD – Peter Gunn and the follow-up More Music From Peter Gunn! Both records really made Mancini's career – taking a lesser-known composer firmly into the limelight with a unique style of crime jazz that endured long after the short-lived detective show it was written to accompany! The real charm of the music lies in the arrangements and the players, though – as Mancini manages to craft the tunes with enough real jazz elements to give them a lot more of an edge than the usual batch of TV music. Nearly every tune's a classic, and the set features 24 titles that include "Peter Gunn", "Goofin At The Coffee House", "Blues For Mothers", "Sorta Blue", "Brothers Go To Mothers", "Dreamsville", "Blue Steel", "Odd Ball", and "The Little Man Theme".

Terrace Martin is an artist who just keeps on getting deeper and deeper over the years – an already-great jazz musician, but one who's widened his scope to touch on broader currents of soul and hip hop – all of which really open up with the jazz-based energy at the core! At some level, this record might be to Martin's career what the Black Radio project was to Robert Glasper – as Terrace opens the door to all-star guests who include Kim Burrell, Leon Bridges, Ty Dolla $ign, Kendrick Lamar, Kamasi Washington, and even Glasper himself – while also finding space to serve up a few key tracks on his own, without any guests – tracks that may well be some of our favorite on the album. Titles include "Turning Poison Into Medicine", "Drones", "Leave Us Be", "Don't Let Go", "Listen", "Sick Of Cryin", "Leimert Park", "Tapped", and "Griots Of The Crenshaw District".

RCA/BMG, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – one that marked his comeback in the early 60s, after a brief period of retirement, and which also initiated a string of incredible recordings with guitarist Jim Hall. Given Hall's gentleness and spare modernity on the guitar, a fan of Rollins' hard-blowing late 50s sessions might not expect the album to work – but instead, it sets up his playing in a whole new mode that brings out a leaner, more confident, more sophisticated solo mode that shows that his time woodshedding in retirement was well spent. Rollins playing is impeccable, with a maturity not heard in his late 50's work, and the whole album is a beautiful study in measured, thoughtful soloing. Tracks include "John S.", "The Bridge", and "God Bless the Child". CD

An album that maybe marked the close of one chapter of The Kinks, and the start of another – music that still holds on to some of the best elements of their late 60s Village Green era, but which also moves the group into some of the headier territory of their Muswell Hill/RCA years too! Ray Davies has never sounded more earnest – still able to pull off wit when needed, but also more down to earth – and because of the massive title hit, the set was also one that put the group in front of the ears or more folks than had been hearing them in previous years. Titles include, of course, the mega-hit "Lola" – plus "This Time Tomorrow", "Apeman", "Strangers", "The Contenders", "Long Way From Home", "Rats", and "Top Of The Pops". Also features great notes, and 5 alternate versions of tracks on the album! CD

The singer's the sort that comes along once in a blue moon – a richly talented artist who's able to take any sort of tune and make it her own – which she definitely does here with a surprisingly diverse array of material which comes across with a surprisingly unified vibe – in part because the instrumental approach is as compelling as the vocals – often with spare piano or keyboards, augmented by just a bit more in terms of rhythm – really leaving Lady Blackbird to dominate the record with a sense of long-burning power that never lets up. Titles include "Ruler Of My Heart", "Blackbird", "It's Not That Easy", "Black Acid Soul", "Fix It", "Five Feet Tall", "Lost & Looking", and "It'll Never Happen Again". CD

We've loved the music of soul singer Ledisi since her first self-released album back in the 90s – and since that time, she's matured even more as a vocalist – to a point where she can easily take on the music of Nina Simone with all the glory it deserves! This special set features Ledisi singing with accompaniment from the Metropole Orkest and New Orleans Jazz Orchestra – each of whom bring a sense of fullness, but in different ways – as Ledisi stretches out the tunes with the kind of sophistication and richness that Nina might have done – but in a voice that's all her own. The set features guests appearances from Lizz Wright and Alice Smith – but Ledisi hardly needs them at all, as she's very firmly in the lead – on titles that include "Feeling Good", "Wild Is The Wind", "Work Song", "Four Women", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", and "I'm Going Back Home".

Dark Horse/BMG, 1997. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The music of Ravi Shankar was a big influence on the work of George Harrison during the 60s – and here, the ex-Beatle returns the favor by giving Ravi a really beautiful setting for his work on sitar – a well-produced album, handled in the studio by George with an even more lofty setting than usual for his music! There's a fair bit of chanted vocals alongside the sitar, percussion, and other instrumentation – almost the sense of spirituality you'll find in a 70s album by Alice Coltrane, but with the Indian roots of the music much more to the forefront. The whole thing's got a really timeless vibe – very different than you might expect from the date – and titles include "Geeta", "Vandanaa Trayee", "Asatao Maa", "Omkaaraaya Namha", "Gaayatri", "Sahanaa Vavatu", "Sarve Shaam", and "Vedic Chanting One".

The mighty Lonnie Liston Smith live – sounding every bit as great as he did on his famous studio sessions from the 70s – and maybe even more freewheeling too! The feel of the record is really tremendous – extremely soulful, with Lonnie jamming away on keyboards as the band grooves up these cool spacey rhythms – stepping out in territory that's definitely the more cosmic side of jazz funk, with those righteous currents that always made Lonnie so great. The whole thing's wonderful – with loads of great electric work, and an overall spiritual vibe that's every bit as great as his albums for Flying Dutchman – and players include Donald Smith on flute and a bit of vocals, Dave Hubbard on tenor and soprano sax, and Lonnie himself on Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and Arp. The set includes a nice extended take on "Visions of A New World", plus the tracks "Watercolors", "Sorceress" – which isn't on any of his studio albums, "Prelude", and the classic "Expansions". CD

Lovely live work from the great Gal Costa – recorded for MTV in Brazil, and a perfect presentation of their "unplugged" format! Gal sings with small combo backing on bass, piano, guitar, and percussion – and she runs through a long set of old favorites that includes "Baby", "O Amor", "Teco Teco", "Folhetim", "Forca Estranha", "Barato Total", "So Louco", "Voce Nao Entende Nada", "Aquarela Do Brasil", and "Falsa Bahiana".
