✨✧ Paul GonsalvesCleopatra Feelin' Jazzy ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great record – and one that's hardly what you'd guess from the title! Sure, the Cleopatra movie was a giant hit in the 60s – but it also gave the chance for some jazzmen to explore more exotic territory – as was also the case with material from Spartacus and Lawrence Of Arabia! Tenorist Paul Gonsalves plays a nice batch of soul jazz takes on Cleopatra – and he brings his gutsy solo style into play with a set of groovy arrangements of "Egyptian" tunes, both from the score of the film and from the pen of players on the session. And speaking of players, Dick Hyman's on organ, and he gives the album a nice nice groovy sound that works very well with Gonsalves' sharp-edged tenor. Titles include "Caesar & Cleopatra Theme", "Bluz For Liz", "Cleo's Asp", "Cleopatra's Lament", and "Action In Alexandria". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousTeen Expo – The Cleopatra Label ... CD
Numero, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little look not just at a small indie label of the 60s – but also that decade's larger underground music scene – served up here on a set of recordings done for the tiny Cleopatra label in New Jersey! There's definitely lots of those "wanna be hitmaker" cuts that can make a tiny label so great – but Cleopatra also had a great ear for talents who ran around the farther range of pop as well – cool female singers with a nice slinky sound, or male artists who might have been going for deeper styles that wouldn't really flourish more strongly until a few years later in the mainstream – all captured with surprising care and taste by label head Tommy Falcone! As with the best of the other Numero sets like this, the story behind the label is as great as the music itself – quite compelling, given that Falcone and most of his artists were just a stone's throw away from New York – but often a world away, given the gap between mainstream fame and indie obscurity. The set features 26 tracks in all – and includes some by The Inmates, probably the biggest act to come from Falcone's studios – plus Bernadette Carroll, The Tabbys, Dick Hunter, Vickie & The Van Dykes, The Ovations, Centuries, Hallmarks, Johnny Silvio, Jimmy Davis, Tommy Manno, Eugene Viscione, and The Shandillons.

Guru GuruHinten (splater vinyl presssing) ... LP
Ohr/Cleopatra, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $30.99 32.99
A bold early classic from Guru Guru – exactly the kind of record you'd expect from Mani Neumier being billed as the "zonk machine" and "sounding being"! The record's an all-out jam, with a fair bit more frenzy than the usual prog album of the time – and some especially noisy moments, both on the guitars, and the drums – which are often filtered and processed, and all mixed and muddied up next to the vocals! But by "muddied", we don't mean that the record is sloppy at all – because Guru Guru sit at the production helm themselves, and work their own vision at a level to rival Can's complete use of the studio as an instrument. Titles include "Electric Junk", "The Meaning Of Meaning", "Space Ship", and "Bo Diddley". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition splatter vinyl pressing!)

Guru GuruUFO ... CD
Ohr/Cleopatra, 1970. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Early Krautrock hugeness from Guru Guru – their epic debut, and a record that was one of the key calling cards of the German scene at the start of the 70s! At first glance, the elements are familiar – but there's a few nice touches in the studio too – yet the real energy of the group come from their fantastic musicianship, spun out on long tracks that make the core bass, drums, and guitar sound far more revolutionary than work from the UK scene at the time. That core is one that so many other groups were using with a blues rock into hard rock mode – but Guru Guru are already into something new and their own here – stepping out on long cuts that include "Stone In", "Girl Call", "Next Time See You At The Dalai Lhama", and "Der LSD – Marsch".

✨✧ MinistryTwelve Inch Singles – 1981 to 1984 (silver vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cleopatra, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great chapter in the evolution of Ministry – not the mainstream Brit-styled work the duo cut for Arista Records during their first big run of fame – but instead some very underground material when Al Jourgensen was working on the Chicago scene – including some rare mixes and a number of early tracks that ended up helping to form the basis for the early sound of Wax Trax Records with a dark and moody vibe that only went further in later years.! And despite the claim of single tracks, the set's also got some unreleased early 80s material too – titles that include "Overkill", "He's Angry", "Same Old Madness", "Move (orig mix)", and "I'm Falling (alt mix)" – served up here next to singles that include "Nature Of Love", "All Day", "Cold Life", "Every Day Is Halloween", "Halloween (rmx)", "Nature Of Love (cruelty mix)", "Cold Life (dub)", "Primental", "Nature Of Outtakes", and "I'm Falling".

Jutta HippJutta Hipp Quintet ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $13.99 About October 20, 2021
An amazing early bop session from Germany! During the 50s, pianist Jutta Hipp cut a number of straighter sides for Blue Note that were recorded in the US – but this first album has her working with German contemporaries like Joki Freund on tenor sax and Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, carving out a dark little batch of tracks with a sharper edge than you'd expect! Although Hipp's the leader, it's the amazing horn interplay that really makes the record shine – as Mangelsdorff and Freund work in unison on many of the intros to the songs, cutting back and forth like a double-edged sword, then breaking out into wonderfully compact solos. About 3 tracks feature Hipp in a trio, but the remaining 5 feature this quintet – and it's just great! Titles include "Cleopatra", "Mon Petit", "What's New", and "Variations". CD

Eddie HollandIt Moves Me – The Complete Recordings 1958 to 1964 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
A beautiful collection of all the great and rare material Eddie Holland cut as solo singer in the late 50s and early 60s – including the incredible early Motown material, plus tracks he cut for Mercury, Kudo, Tamla and United Artists! Of course Eddie Holland is best remembered for uber-legendary work as producer, composer and arranger with the Holland-Dozier-Holland super soul unit – for damn good reason, but it's his early work as singer is way too strong to be considered a mere footnote to his greater legacy. Many of the cuts were written and produced by Berry Gordy, along with numbers written and produced by Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier, some recorded more famously by later acts, so what you truly have here is the foundation for great things to come – it's beautiful stuff that shines brightly in its own light. Eddie's a solid singer and the songs are terrific, formative stuff that's a pivotal bridge from earlier R&B to massive soul. 56 tracks on 2CDs: "Little Miss Ruby", "Will You Love Me", "Just A Few More Days", "It's Not Too Late", "Just Ain't Enough Love", "Brenda", "Baby Shake", "Magic Mirror", "If Cleopatra Took A Chance", "Action Speaks Louder than Words", "Bashful Kind", "Too Late To Cry", "Happy Go Lucky", "Pretty Little Angel Face", "Day Dreamer", "Rain And Thunder", "I Like Everything About You", "Happy Days" and many more. This set goes deeper than any compilation we've seen of Eddie's recordings, too, with a number of previously unissued Mercury recordings. CD

Takuya Kuroda, Akihiro Nishiguchi, & OthersBlue Note Voyage ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
A really fantastic 80th birthday tribute to Blue Note Records – one that has a host of younger Japanese jazz musicians banding together to deliver their own versions of Blue Note classics from back in the day! The lineup is wonderful, and very adept at changing up from track to track – Jun Miyakwawa on Hammond and piano, Takuya Kuroda on trumpet, Akihiro Nishiguchi on tenor, May Inoue on guitar, Ai Kuwabara on piano, Ryuta Tsunoda on bass, and both Tomo Kanno and Shun Ishiwaka on drums – players who not only understand the spirit of the music, but also very much rise with each other in a sense of fresh arrangements that moves the record way past just a sleepy remake of the past! Instead, we hear plenty of currents of the more contemporary Tokyo scene – on titles that include "Maiden Voyage", "Feel Like Makin Love", "Cleopatra's Dream", "Midnight Blue", "Song For My Father", "Sidewinder", and "Night In Tunisia".

Ricky Tick (Finland), 2007. Used ... $14.99
Crackling piano trio work from LTC – a groovy Italian combo who burn things up nicely with this club jazz set for the Ricky Tick label! There's a tightness here that takes us back to some of the best European piano sets of the 60s – influences from soul jazz, modal jazz, and a bit of bossa – all wrapped up tightly in a tremendous balance between piano, bass, and drums – grooving hard with a soulful, soaring power that never lets up! Think of some of the best classic piano sets on the Saba label from the 60s, and you've got a great idea of the sound here – and as usual, the Ricky Tick production and presentation of the material seems to add an extra level of grooviness to the already-great music. Titles include a great remake of the Francy Boland groover "Just Give Me Time" – plus "A Different View", "The Holy Ghost", "Magic Mirror", "Easy Does It", "Antony & Cleopatra's Love", "Shibuya Crossing", and "Breakfast With Silvia".

✨✧ NickodemusEndangered Species (with bonus 7" single) ... LP
ESL/Wonderwheel, 2006. New Copy ... $23.99 25.99
The groove here is a compelling blend of Puerto Rican, African, and New York styles – bits of salsa, funk, hip hop, and more – all percolating together in the hands of Nickodemus and coming out in a whole new way! The sound is a lot less cliched than you might expect – and certainly nothing like mainstream crossovers of this nature – and the album's re-release is noteworthy, given all the attention Nickodemus has been getting of late. Guests include Ticklah, Quantic, Apani B, Malena Perez, and others – and titles include "Mi Swing Es Tropical", "Cleopatra In New York", "Give The Drummer Some", "The Spirits Within", "Back From Africa", "Bailamos En El Junque", "Mystery Of Life", and "Peace Pipe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a bonus 7" single – with the tracks "Mi Swing Es Tropical" and "Rhythm Love Reprise".)

Bud PowellScene Changes – The Amazing Bud Powell (with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $4.99
The scene may be changing, but nothing can dampen the fire of the great Bud Powell – and, if anything, this fifth installment in Blue Note's "Amazing" series may well have the pianist at his mature best! The rhythm duo are wonderful – more late 50s modern hardbop than some of Bud's accompanists in years past – the great Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums, both of whom can bring the fire when needed, yet also craft their lines with these subtle touches that really match Powell's incredible dexterity on piano. Tunes are shorter than usual for a Blue Note album of this vintage – but mostly because all three players pack a hell of a lot into a very small space – and really make timeless magic on titles that include "Down With It", "Cleopatra's Dream", "Gettin' There", "Danceland", "Borderick", and "Duid Dee". CD features a bonus alternate take of "Comin Up". CD

A smoking slice of work from The Tennors – plus some great cuts by other "friends" on the Jamaican scene of the late 60s! The group really shine on their own singles, then step aside to let some other artists come in too – almost all with a similar mix of soul and rocksteady rhythms, and an especially key focus on the kind of growing vocal harmonies that were really helping change the face of Jamaican music at the time! Titles include "Reggae Girl", "Khaki", "The Stage", "Ride Your Donkey", "Gram Pa", "Cleopatra", and "Double Attack" by The Tennors – plus "Oh My Baby" and "Go Your Way" by The Harmonians, "Donkey Trot" by Clive's All Stars, "While I'm Walking" by Roman Stewart, "Parapinto" by Johnny More & Karl Bryan, "Copy Me Donkey" by Charlie Organire with Tommy McCook, "I'm Gonna Make It" by Cliff Smith, and "Puzzle" by Winston Wright.

✨✧ VariousKatanga/Ahbe Casabe – Mo Blues & Rhythm, Popcorn, Exotica, & Tittyshakers (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Captain High (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The "exotic" in the title is certainly well-placed – as many of these tracks take a familiar instrument, and use it in a slightly unusual way – a saxophone, piano, electric guitar, or something else – often set to grooves that start out in an R&B, early rock, or jazz-based style, but move into much groovier territory too! Some of these numbers have the spirit of the cuts we love in the Jukebox Mambo series – and others draw in elements of postwar Latin or exotica styles – while still keeping things pretty soulful overall! CD brings together material from the long-deleted Katanga and Ahbe Casabe 10" vinyl releases – with tracks that include "Nene Aman" by Artie Barsamian, "Green Onions" by Claus Ogerman, "Classie's Whip"b y Classie Ballou, "Cleopatra Kick" by Jack LaForge, "Lucky Is My Name" by Bruce Cloud, "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Shadow Street" by Kip Tyler, "Cleopatra" by Jamie Coe, "Katanga" by Ike Turner, "Lucky Me" by Chance Hallyday, "Ahbe Casabe" by Marti Barris, and "Thirteen Women & One Man" by Dickie Thompson – plus two bonus tracks "Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton and "Pu Chun Ga (Sweet One)" by Elena Madera.
