✨✧ Paul Dunmall, Alan Skidmore, Julie Kjaer, & OthersJohn Coltrane 50th Memorial Concert At Cafe Oto ... CD
Confront (UK), 2019. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful tribute to the late John Coltrane – presented here in a double-length set of recordings taken from a special performance at London's Cafe Oto! The core talent here is tenorist Paul Dunmall – who plays on most of the selections and does a really fantastic job of evoking the spirit and power of Coltrane, while also showing how much his influence has continued to transform in the five decades since his passing. Dunmall works with his Sun Ship Quartet that includes Howard Cottle on second tenor, Olie Brice on bass, and Anthony Bianco on drums – on versions of "Amen", "Dearly Beloved", and "Sun Ship" – all of which have a very different vibe with this two-sax lineup! The group is then augmented by the presence of Alan Skidmore on a third tenor, while Dunmall picks up a soprano too – on versions of "Attaining" and "Ascent". The set also features an original tune – "May There Be Peace & Love & Perfection Throughout All Creation O God" – by the trio of Julie Kjaer on flute, and Mark Wastell and Stale Liavik Solberg on percussion. And the set concludes with a reading of "Ascension" that includes all the players united together! CD

Bob Marley & The WailersConfrontation ... LP
Island, 1983. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A posthumous album from the great Bob Marley – but one that's every bit as important as all the classics that were released during his too-short lifetime! The record really continues that righteous power of the later Bob Marley years on Island – that global scope in both the music's power, and Bob's vision for change in the world – sometimes issued at a more personal level, but always with a spirit that's strong enough to inspire the generations who've grabbed onto this album as a favorite. Titles include "Chant Down Babylon", "Buffalo Soldier", "Mix Up Mix Up", "Blackman Redemption", "Jump Nyabinghi", "Stiff Necked Fools", "I Know", and "Trench Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a lightly bent corner.)

✨✧ Johnny GriffinJazz A Confronto ... LP
Horo (Italy), 1974. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure 70s sides by Johnny Griffin – a really warm and wonderful set, recorded in Italy with an Italian rhythm section of Franco D'Andrea on piano, Giovanni Tommaso on bass, and Bruno Biriaco on drums. Tracks are all quite long, but never sloppy – and in a way, Griff solos with a more unified, to the point feel than on some of his other European albums of the period – rising to the feeling of the session, in which he's clearly admired by the Italian players he's working with. Titles include "Always Forever", "Keep Going", "For The Love Of", and "Music Inn Blues" – all original numbers. LP, Vinyl record album
(In great shape!)

Barry WhiteIs This Whatcha Wont? ... CD
20th Century, 1976. Used ... $13.99
Kind of a confrontational title, but still an excellent batch of grooves from The Maestro, with heavenly production, and lots of long drawn-out sexy grooves. Cuts include "Don't Make Me Wait Too Long", "I'm Qualified To Satisfy You", "Your Love – So Good I Can't Take It", and "I Wanna Lay Down With You Baby". CD

✨✧ LesimanHere & Now – Vol 2 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning work from Lesiman – easily one of the coolest, funkiest talents on the Italian sound library scene of the 70s! The groove here is electric, funky, and often slightly trippy – with perfect use of electric bass to get things going in so many different ways, depending on the mood of the track – as things step slowly underneath cascading piano lines, or move fast under these fuzzier keyboard bits, or act nice and skittish when the drums take on more power in the mix! There's often a nice degree of echo in the recordings – used to abstract familiar instruments, but never steer them of course too much – just create these amazing sounds that still leave us breathless after all these years. Both volumes of the set are amazing – and titles on volume 2 include "Plycar", "Permanenza", "Controcorrente", "Radura", "Stabilita", "Messaggio", "Confronto", "Ripresa", "Ciclo Interrotto", and "Cristalli". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Slum VillageDetroit Deli – A Taste Of Detroit ... CD
Barak/Capitol, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Slum Village returns with their most rugged album ever! The Slum still hasn't duplicated the particularly groovy style of the classic Fantastic, Vol 2, and to be honest, the crew is really the same in name only. The line-up has changed little-by-little with each album, and the Detroit Deli Slum has the act paired down to the duo of T3 and Baatin. Against the odds, the album works – with an overall stronger presentation than the previous Trinity album (one that we admired more than we actually enjoyed), with some grimy, crackly beats and production, more confrontational rhymes than you'd expect from Slum Village, plus a couple of strong collaborations with fellow Detroit native Dwele. Tracks include "Zoom", "Do You", "Dirty" featuring Dirt McGirt, "Selfish" with Kanye West, "Closer" featuring Dwele, "Old Girl/Shining Star", "Keep Holding Tight", "It's On", "The Hours", "Things We Know", "Counting The Ways" with Dwele and "Reunion" featuring Dilla.

✨✧ VariousDigital Zandoli 2 – Funky Zouk Spectrum 1984 to 1993 ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky sounds from the French West Indies scene – tunes from a time when the grooves were showing a lot of 80s elements, but still burst forth in some of the unusual rhythmic currents you'd expect from Martinique and Guadeloupe! The grooves here almost feel like New York material from the first part of the 80s – given their use of keyboards, beats, and basslines – but there's lots of pan-global currents moving through the grooves, and a melange of modes that almost reminds us of the way that earlier acts were borrowing from the Caribbean and West African for US and UK funky club – a favor that seems to be returned here as these artists borrow back, and make sounds that are completely their own! We love this volume even more than the first Digital Zandoli – and especially groove on the positive, upbeat spirit of many of the tracks – music that has an undeniable effervescence, and a hell of a sense of rhythm too. Titles include "Melodi" by Osmose, "Ban Di Fwan" by Coco/Fabert, "Confrontation (inst)" by Wach'Da, "Pou Jaloux" by Michel Alibo, "L'Anmouw Aw" by Champagn, "Pou Qui Ca" by Patrick Nuissier, "Sun Plash" by Djeminay, "Pina Colada Coco Loco" by Joyeux De Cocotier, "Sistem" by Alex Rosa, "Demare Mwen" by Jo Star, and "Tension La Ka Monte" by Vik'In.

✨✧ Organized KonfusionEquinox ... CD
Priority, 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
The amazing lyricism and complicated flow of Pharoah and Prince Po are still intact here, but there's not as much of the jazz-inflected funky production of the first two LPs (they didn't do all the beats this time, bringing in Buckwild and Diamond D on a few cuts), and while a lot of people wondered why they came off so hard on this one, if you listen closely, it goes a little deeper than that. . . Includes "They Don't Want It", "Numbers", "9x's Out Of 10", "Chuck Cheese", "Confrontations", "Move", "Invetro", and "Somehow, Someway". CD
