✨✧ Don GloriDawn Calling ... LP
Nothin Personal (UK), 2021. New Copy ... $16.99
A really great record from the Melbourne scene – a record that's got kind of a "jazz plus" vibe – in that it mixes live jazz instrumentation with some work on edits and a few electric touches – all in a style that's very much like some of our favorite London work in recent years! Don Glori heads the group on bass and keyboards – but the sound is served up in a really well-crafted blend of saxophones, Fender Rhodes, and lots of great percussion – sometimes with vocals, but often used more like an instrument than a lyrical delivery system – on tracks that are nice and long, and resonate with a mix of soulful and spiritual touches! Titles include "Voyager", "Fly Low, "Dawn Calling", "Pachinko King", and "After Hours". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les Jazz Modes (Charlie Rouse & Julius Watkins)Les Jazz Modes – The Rare Dawn Sessions ... CD
Dawn/Biograph, 1956. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Great work by one of the most unusual jazz combos of the 50s! Les Jazz Modes was a group with a really unusual sound – one that matched the rounder French Horn tones of Julius Watkins with the sharper-edge tenor of Charlie Rouse – heard here in the years between his Blue Note recordings as a leader, and his later fame with Thelonious Monk. And while the horn work is great, the group's key component was actually pianist Gildo Mahones – whose soulful sense of rhythm made even the group's more artful numbers still swing with effortless ease. The 2CD set brings together 24 tracks from the mid 50s albums the ensemble recorded for Dawn Records – most of them with the core group, but a few of which feature some added Latin percussion, and some occasional wordless female vocals from Eileen Gilbert! Titles include "Let's Try", "Legend", "Episode", "Goodbye", "Garden Delights", "So Far", "Blue Modes", "Strange Tale", "Two Songs", and "Idle Evening". CD

✨✧ Pink FloydPiper At The Gates Of Dawn ... CD
EMI, 1967. Used ... $4.99
A brilliant bit of psychedelia – still as fresh today as it was many decades back – and the crowning achievement of Pink Floyd during the early Syd Barrett years! The album's got all the best elements of the group firmly in place – the penchant for long-jamming tracks that still manage to always maintain a sharp edge – mixed with some of the wittier, more playful lyrics that Barrett brought to the group – all wrapped up with a sense of depth and darkness that goes way beyond most of their contemporaries. The record's a masterpiece through and through – from its first guitar-heavy jam on "Astronomy Domine", through the strutting, vamping madness of "Bike" – all up and down other gems that include "Lucifer Sam", "The Gnome", "Take Up Thy Stethoscope & Walk", "Interstellar Overdrive", "Chapter 24", and "The Scarecrow".

✨✧ Sahib ShihabSummer Dawn (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Argo/Rearward (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A fantastic early record by Sahib Shihab – a motherlode of modal jazz grooves, cut during the early days of the Clarke-Boland Big Band! The record features a core group of players from that ensemble – including Shihab on alto, baritone, and flute, plus Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, Ake Persson on trombone, Francy Boland on piano, Joe Harris on bongos, and Kenny Clarke on drums – all coming together here with a groove that's really groundbreaking – a style that's sweet and soulful, but rhythmically revolutionary too! The tracks are all long and grooving – with the kind of dancing jazz tone that you'd expect from the Saba/MPS label during the mid 60s – a big change from the Argo label that originally issued the record. But that's no surprise, either, as the session was actually recorded in Europe by Gigi Campi – the man behind the CBBB albums on MPS – with a feel that's quite similar to other Shihab classics, like Companionship or Seeds. The whole thing's great – one of Shihab's most wonderful records, and totally worth owning – and titles include "Lillemor", "Please Don't Leave Me", "Waltz For Seth", and "Herr Fixit".

A beautiful early album from Cassandra Wilson – a singer who already had a really deep sound, right at the start – and definitely hit her stride with music like this! The album mixes jazzy currents with rootsier elements – some of them from a more global perspective – and the production is nicely understated, so that Wilson's strongly in the lead throughout. Titles include "Sankofa", "Black Crow", "I Can't Stand The Rain", "Children In The Night", "Hellhound On My Tail", "Come On In My Kitchen", and "Tell Me You'll Wait For Me". CD

High Note, 2019. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic trumpet work from the great Wallace Roney – the kind of record that really lets the legend show his strengths in the best sort of way – with plenty of those trademark long-blown, well-inflected notes that have always graced his music! The set is definitely blue – blue in tone, blue in construction – and Roney blows in a core group with Emilio Modest on tenor and soprano, Oscar Williams II on piano, and Paul Cuffari on bass – with shifting drum work from Lenny White or Kojo Odu Roney, plus guitar from Quintin Zoto on a few tracks. Wallace has a strong sense of color throughout, very much living up to his legacy – and titles include "In A Dark Room", "Venus Rising", "Elliptical", "Why Should There Be Stars", "Wolfbane", and "New Breed".

Prestige, 1975. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Patrice Rushen's second album – and a very sweet batch of keyboard funk! The record has Patrice working in a groove that's almost like that of Herbie Hancock at the time – using lots of electric piano, clavinet, and synth to craft some mighty fine jazz funk grooves. The group's a monster assemblage of Fantasy jazz players like Hubert Laws, Lee Ritenour, Hadley Caliman, and Harvey Mason – and the session crackles with a tight edge that you'll never find in any of Patrice's later work. Tracks are long, with lots of great spacey grooves, and titles include "Razzia", "Before The Dawn", "Kickin Back", and "Jubilation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMusik Music Musique – 1980 The Dawn Of Synth Pop (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A great little set that brings together the big bang of electro pop that hit the UK scene at the start of the 80s – work from that moment when previous, more experimental strands of music from the initial post-punk years started cleaning things up, going for hooks, and making some pretty darn catchy music in the process! Yet the work here is also maybe still far from some of the overplayed big hits of a few years later – that key moment when early experimenters were crafting some great tunes, but still not sounding too commercial – and sometimes enticing other artists who didn't always record in this mode to join in on the fun! And if you think you know all the sounds from this time, this box set might give you a big surprise – as there's plenty of work here that we didn't expect – not just more obscure tunes by bigger names, but also some obscure artists who fit right into the groove – all given plenty of coverage in the large booklet of notes. 3CD set features 58 tracks in all - with work by The Passage, Berlin Blondes, Buggles, M, Silicon Teens, Rockets, John Foxx, Science, Fad Gadget, Zeus, OMD, Pauline Murray & The Invisible Girls, Dark Day, Der Plan, Kevin Harrison, Japan, Dalek I, Taxi Girl, Systems, Karel Fialka, Nini Raviolette, The Korgis, Alex Fergusson, The Metronomes, Lori & The Chameleons, and others.

Sally EatonFarewell American Tour ... CD
Paramount/Early Dawn (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99
A really unusual album from singer Sally Eaton – not really her farewell tour of America, although the title also matches the subtle drama of the cover image and the way that Sally puts together the lyrics! The tunes are very unique, explained a bit by Eaton in the notes – which also include her horoscope chart, in case you want to figure her out – just the sort of touch that makes the whole thing a wonderfully distinct album, even during a period when American music was already overflowing with distinction! Arrangements are by Harold Wheeler and George Brackman – and if you know Wheeler's work, especially for the stage, you'll get a great idea of the vibe here – although Sally's mix of fragility and intelligence in her vocal approach is something that needs to be heard to be understood. Titles include "This Time Next Autumn", "Flowers In The Air", "Once Before You Go", "I Don't Want To Need You Anymore", "Reader & Advisor", and "Long Time Lover". CD

Joe HarriottSouthern Horizons ... LP
Jazzland/Down At Dawn (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Excellent! This record is one of the lost chapters in the career of the great British alto player Joe Harriott. The session was recorded before Joe's experimental "Abstract" release, and way before his "Indo Jazz Fusions" experiments – but it's still an excellent session of off-kilter bop that shows what a keen talent Joe was on the alto. He's playing here in the company of the great Shake Keane on trumpet – another fellow West Indian expatriate who was living in London – along with Coleridge Goode on bass, Harry South on piano, and Bobby Orr on drums – plus some bonus from Frank Holder on a few tracks, which sound mighty nice. The session was probably released in the UK, but this US issue is the only time we ever seem to see it – and it's not a record that shows up often. Tracks include "Liggin", "Caravan", "Senor Blues", "Count Twelve", and "Southern Horizons". LP, Vinyl record album

You might know Ze Manel as a member of Super Mama Djombo – but here, he comes across on a set of tracks that are even more personal, yet still highly rhythmic overall! There's a criss-crossing of elements in the tunes that's really great – lots of back/forth rhythms, sewn together by leaner guitar lines – and topped with lyrics that have this almost-heartbreaking quality, as Manel sings with a sometimes wavering style that really brings a lot to his words! Titles include "Gacadjo Kebra", "Nha Guine", "Bardade Dentro Di Bardade", "Vida Di Sussego", "S'Cudjo", and "Formados Sim Forma". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ HarumiHarumi ... CD
Verve/Early Dawn (Germany), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the trippiest albums recorded for Verve in the 60s – a unique 2LP set by Japanese psych artist Harumi – and a record that stands proudly next to the best by Zappa or the Velvets at the time! The double-length space of the record really helps give it some shape – as Harumi starts out sweet, then gets a bit wilder, and increases the sense of experimentation as the set rolls on – so that the final track is a side-long psychedelic jam that's topped with spoken passages by Harumi's parents and sister! We like the poppier tunes the best, though – and they feature a mix of orchestrations, fuzzy guitar, and vibes – all layered with a really beautiful sense of sound, to accompany vocals by Harumi and Rosko. There's a gentle, breezy, and sometimes slightly funky quality to these numbers – Sunshine Pop with a trace of jazz – and exactly the kind of psyche album you might imagine from Verve in the 60s! Titles include "Sugar In Your Tea", "Caravan", "Hunters Of Heaven", "Talk About It", "First Impressions", "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do", "Hello", "What A Day For Me", "We Love", "Fire By The River", and "Samurai Memories".

✨✧ Mystic Astrologic Crystal BandMystic Astrologic Crystal Band Featuring Steve Hoffman ... CD
GNP/Early Dawn (Germany), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A trippy 60s treasure from this groovy west coast group – a cool quintet led by the fuzzy-headed Steve Hoffman – who not only wrote some very unusual tunes for the combo, but also comes up with an equally unusual mix of instruments! The music is half psych, half sunshine pop – the latter because many of the tunes have a very catchy vibe, and often feature group harmonies behind Steve's lead – the former because there's some cool instrumental elements in the mix, including electric sitar, bass marimba, organ, and lots of unusual touches on tablas, saw, autoharp, and other offbeat elements. Most songs are short, and very catchy – and titles include "Early Dawn", "Barnyard Philosophy", "Factory Endeavor", "Geometry Alley", "Only Time", "I Think I'll Just Lie Here & Die", "The MACB Theme", and "Sunbeams & Rainbows".

Cicadelic, 1968. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
A college band, but one with an amazing sound that should have made them huge – had they managed to survive graduation time at Oberlin College! For a combo out in the sticks of Ohio, these guys sound pretty darn great (but let's also not forget that Oberlin's given us Liz Phair, John McIntire, and plenty of other key talents over the years) – and they're a fuzzy little group with a warmly laidback feel to their music – kind of folk-psych, produced here with a nicely naive sort of sensibility. The tunes are every bit as great as better-known work coming out of the New York or LA scenes of the time, and they're quite surprising for their maturity and power overall – as even familiar numbers are way more than just simple covers in the hands of the group. Titles include "Four In The Morning", "Violets Of Dawn", "Hey Joe", "Outskirts", "Elaborations", "Pale Shades Of Gray", and "What's The Matter Now". CD

Dylan Baldi/Jayson GeryczAfter Commodore Perry Service Plaza ... LP
American Dreams, 2021. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Introspective improvisations from saxophonist Dylan Baldi and drummer Jayson Gerycz – both members of the band Cloud Nothings, but working here in a much more free jazz-styled setting! Side one features an extended track titled "Hermit Thrush/Vat Of Oil" – really building up nicely at first with open, almost rambling work on the drum kit – matched with saxophone work from Baldi that slowly builds, still in soulful spiritual territory for the most part – occasionally hitting some wilder, raspier moments – almost in an Arthur Doyle sort of way. Side two has some more subtle sonic interplay on "Frog Congress At Dawn", a very organic track – and ramps things up with more freewheeling improv on "The Holy Retrievers In Transit".

Be Bop DeluxeAxe Victim (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harvest/Eclectic (UK), 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
The amazing debut of Be Bop Deluxe – a record that's made up of all sorts of familiar parts, yet somehow really manages to set itself apart as a whole! The young Bill Nelson is at the top of his game here – a hell of a guitarist, which we sometimes forget in his later work – and a vocalist with a sinister edge that gives the record a sense of darkness that matches the compressed production and overall moody vibe – a child of the Bowie/Bolan generation, but one that's a real black sheep of the family too! The strength of the record is impossible to sum up in easy words – but it's there for the hearing, right from the very first note – on titles that include "Jet Silver & The Dolls Of Venus", "Axe Victim", "Love Is Swift Arrows", "No Trains To Heaven", "Jets At Dawn", "Rocket Cathedrals", and "Third Floor Heaven". Great 2CD version features detailed notes from Bill Nelson – plus bonus tracks that include the original indie single "Teenage Archangel" and "Jets At Dawn" – plus the cuts "No Trains To Heaven (first mix)", "Axe Victim (first album version mix)", "Axe Victim (first version)", "Rocket Cathedrals (first version)", and "Night Creature (spoken word version)" – plus a remaster of the original stereo mix, and a new 2020 stereo mix too!

Ancient Archive Of Sound (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $36.99
A mighty feather in the cap of UK saxophonist Nat Birchall – and a set that really shows just how much he's opening up his sound in recent years! The set is a second meeting between Birchall and Al Breadwinner – and like the previous, both artists handle a wide range of instrumentation in a mode that matches 70s dub production styles with jazzy elements too – as Nat plays tenor, soprano, melodica, organ, piano, and percussion – and Al handles drums, organ, guitar, piano, and more percussion too! Breadwinner recorded and mixed the set – with the kind of mysterious vibe that almost recalls Lee Scratch Perry at Black Ark – and the duo are joined by Vin Gordon on trombone, David Fullwood on trumpet, and Stally on baritone sax. Titles include "Wise Man Style/Dub Of The Prophet", "Tribute To The Great Tommy McCook", "Man From Jones Down", "Upright Living", "Mystical Dawn", "African Village Dub", and "Upfull Dubbing".

Birds & BrassSoundsational Sort Of Soul (Soundsational/Birds & Brass Are Back) ... CD
Rediffusion/RPM (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
Birds, brass, and plenty of grooves – two sublime UK sound library sets, back to back on a single CD! "Birds" here is used in the UK slang for women – and the combo sports wordless female vocals sliding along with the grooves – sneaking in and out of the brassier bits on the top with a "yeh yeh" sort of chorus approach, but one that's pretty musical overall! The best part of the music, though, is below the birds and the brass – the bottom, which is often quite funky, and has a soundtrack-styled sort of groove – rolling bass, snapping drums, bits of keyboards – all used in the best gently funky ways of the glory days of the Brit Easy scene. Most of the work here is the brainchild of arranger Keith Roberts – a lesser-known UK sound library figure, one who did a bit of work on Scott Walker's fourth album, but who really shines brightly here on his own. Titles include "Sort Of Soul", "Return To Montana", "Sunspot", "All Souled Out", "Time Key", "Pop Off The Tops", "New Dawn", "Melanie", "Sugar Sugar", "Funky Splanky", "The Kung Fu Kid", "Mexico Fiesta", "Fritzy Baby", and "Swamp Water".

The sound here is a nice lean change from the fuller Incognito vibe – Bluey on guitar and keyboards, with help from Richard Bull on other instruments, keyboards, and rhythm programs – all given this full, warm production tip that has Bluey's vocals spacing out next to the keyboards – on titles that include "Don't Ask Me Why", "Had To Make You Mine", "From The Break Of Dawn", "Floating World", "Tinted Sky", "Nobody Knows", "Unaware", and "Back Here Again".

One of the most interesting records we've ever heard from pianist Joe Bonner – a set that still has all the long, spiritual lines of his excellent albums from the 70s – but which also showcases Bonner's ear for larger arrangements – as he brings in trumpet, trombone, flute, and a bit of strings to his own work on piano, with bass from Paul Warburton and drums from J Thomas Tilton! There's a sense of majesty here that's a nice expansion past the vibe of previous Bonner records – while all the soul and spirit is intact – very Strata East overall. Titles include "The Northstar", "I'll Say No This Time", "Quiet Dawn", "Why Am I Here", and "Impressions Of Copenhagen/RV". Features the bonus track "Lush Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Brides Of FunkensteinComplete Atlantic Records – Funk Or Walk/Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 18.98
A prime pair of late 70s classics on Atlantic Records from Brides Of Funkenstein – a funky female group from the P-Funk empire – back-to-back with bonus tracks! The Brides are one of George Clinton's few girl-based projects of the 70s, and a group who are markedly more funk-based than Parlet! Vocals are by the duo of Lyn Mabry and Dawn Silva – but the main sound of the set comes from the tightly crafted rhythms served up by a cast of well-known P-Funk regulars – all hitting a spaciously snapping vibe that reminds us a lot of the best energy of late 70s Parliament albums on Casablanca! The tracks on Funk Or Walk, which is on Disc 1 here, are longish, but nicely focused – with less of the disco that you might expect, and more of a slow-stepping groove overall! Titles include "Disco To Go", "War Ship To Touchante", "Just Like You", "When You're Gone", "Amorous", "Nappy", and "Birdie". 2 bonus tracks: single mixes of "Amorous" and "War Ship Touchante". Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy is tremendously soulful session – with plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love". The 2 Part single version of the title track is here as a bonus track. CD

Record Kicks (UK), 2012. New Copy (reissue)... About March 1, 2021
Massive work from Calibro 35 – a group we've been digging on obscure overseas releases – stepping out here on their first American record, and easily their funkiest album to date! The sound is wonderful – still filled with the older Italian soundtrack references that got the group's music going in the first place – but also driven by a much tighter sound at the bottom, especially on the drums – which really drive the tunes strongly! Other instrumentation includes loads of keyboards – especially clavinet-type riffs that fit the group's 70s cop/crime mode perfectly – and titles include "Uh Ah Brrr", "Thank You & Goodbye", "New Delhi Deli", "New York New York", "Italian Band From BBQ", "Rain On Concrete", and "A Massacre At Dawn".

Bobby ColePoint Of View ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1964/1990s. New Copy ... $28.99
An incredible treasure from a lost vocal jazz genius – the little-known Bobby Cole, every bit as great a singer as he was a songwriter, very unusual for the time! Bobby was probably best remembered as the house pianist at Jillys, but at the time of this 1964 recording, he was poised to emerge as a serious vocalist with a rich talent for penning interesting and witty little tunes. The album's got Bobby singing in a style that's halfway between Matt Dennis and Mark Murphy – with the sophisticated talents of both in place, and perhaps a bit of the wit of Bob Dorough or Roy Kral. The original album features Bobby on piano and vocals, with only bass and drums behind him – and the CD features a bonus 6 tracks recorded in more recent years, with larger backings. The core album is completely brilliant – the kind of off-kilter vocal record we die for – and every track's a fresh original by Bobby! Titles include "You Can't Build A Life On A Look", "Heat", "You Could Hear A Pin Drop", "Change Of Scene", "A Perfect Day", "Elegy For Eve", and "Status Quo". CD

Tracks are long and drawn out, and open with the beauty of a field of flowers meeting the dawn – as Alice plays with a sound that's gentle and poetic, but which also has some wonderfully dark undertones. Titles include "Stopover Bombay", "Isis & Osiris", "Shiva-Loka", and "Journey In Satchidananda". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe CubaEl Alma Del Barrio – The Soul Of Spanish Harlem ... CD
Tico, 1964. Used ... $16.99
The Soul of Spanish Harlem – and the upbeat sound of the Joe Cuba Sextet – a hard-to-find album recorded just before the dawn of the classic Latin soul era! This one has been underappreciated for years, which is a shame, because it's got a lot of very nice grooves with that tight Joe Cuba Sextet sound – full snapping percussion and tight rhythms. There's also a few romantic tracks led by keys and a surprisingly warm approach to the vocals, but most of the set is pretty straight ahead Latin! Tracks include "You're Gone", "La Fuga Pal Monte", "Galan, Galan", "Y Sigue", "Solo Por Ti", "Guaguanco Del Jibarito", "Una Nenita", and "El Tapon". CD

Mikey Dread's at the controls, and the album's a classic example of his ability to bring many different creative strands together at once – working the same sort of magic on record that he did on his famous radio show! The record's this wonderful mix of dubby rhythms, spacey production, and vocal touches that kind of slide in and out of the mix – all with a vibe that makes you feel like you've stayed up late into the night, just to tune into some far away station where sounds like these come out of the ether like messages from outer space! The set features work from Sly and Robbie on bass and drums, plus Ansel Collins on organ, Augustus Pablo on electric piano, Earl Chinna Smith on guitar, Vin Gordon on trombone, and Deadly Headly on tenor – plus some crucial electronics from Franklyn Bubbler Waul! Titles include "Saturday Night Style", "Industrial Spy", "Mikey Dread In Action", "Technical Selection", "Operator's Choice", "Headline News", "Comic Strip", and "Pre-dawn Dub".

MPS, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About April 30, 2021
The aura here is spreading wide – as George Duke really grows his sound strongly from the early years, and takes hold of a whole host of cosmic influences! The record's one of Duke's biggest for MPS – a beautiful balance between jazzy fusion and spacey soul – served up with help from an array of great singers and players from the west coast scene. Duke's still stretching out plenty on keyboards – but never in a too-jamming, too-indulgent way – always sensitive enough to never mess up the groove, and always with a sense of space and timing that never showed up this well in his later records. Players include Airto on percussion, Alphonso Johnson on bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Duke himself on more keyboards than we could ever hope to list here! Vocals are by Sylvia St James, Gee Janzen, and Kathy Woehrle – as well as Duke himself – and titles include "Foosh", "For Love", "Uncle Remus", "Fools", "The Aura", "Enchinda's Arf", "Floop De Loop", and "Dawn".

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

An overlooked set from the Gary scene – one of a handful of albums by pianist Billy Foster – a musician, radio host, and educator – with a legacy that almost makes him the Ramsey Lewis of his hometown! Billy cut some more keyboard-heavy albums in the 80s, but this record's a great back to basics set – well-crafted work that features an array of superb compositions by Foster – making us wonder why he never got his due as a composer over the years. The original tunes really dominate the set – and core sounds are from Billy's trio, but the album also features lots of guitar from the great Henry Johnson, plus tenor from Carl Coan, trumpet from Odies Williams, and vocals on some tracks from Renee Miles-Foster. Titles include "Portrait", "B's Bop", "Into The Dawn", "See Mine Are Blues", "The Flower", "Movin On", "Ballad", and "I'm Thinking Love". CD

Fabio Frizzi/Walter Rizzati & Alessandro BlonksteinerLucio Fulci's Gates Of Hell Trilogy (City Of The Living Dead/The Beyond/House By The Cemetery) (3CD set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980/1981. New Copy 3CD ... $44.99
Three Italian horror classics – packaged here in a single set! First up is Fabio Frizzi's score for Nella Citta Dei Morti Viventi/City Of The Living Dead – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was one of the true masters of Italian horror! The sounds here are a mix of electric and acoustic elements – but the latter are often played in offbeat ways that they really sound electric – making for a moody mix of music that goes way beyond the usual spare slasher keyboards! A few numbers use wordless vocals, while others have nicely stepping strings – and a beefier bassline comes into play on a few standout funk tracks as well. Titles include "Toward Dawn", "Fatti Misteriosi", "Apoteosi Del Mistero", "Occhi Di Brace", and "Verso L'Alba". Next is Frizzi's Beyond/E Tu Vivrai Nel Terrore L'Aldila – a very spooky soundtrack – and one that stands out as one of the best-remembered from this important second generation of Italian horror! The record's got less of the atonal orchestrations and funk/thriller modes of a few years before – and moves into the spare, eerie quality that John Carpenter helped usher in – with lots of crashing piano lines, atonal guitar parts, and weird descending chords that feel like they're going to suck you into the deep! There's some very nice and sparing use of synthesizer within the score – just the right bit to add a creepy edge, but maybe not as much as on other synth-heavy soundtracks from the time – and titles include "Voci Dal Nulla", "Oltre La Soglia", "Suono Aperto", "Verso L'Ignoto", and "Giro Di Blues". Walter Rizzati's score for Quella Villa Accanto Al Cimitero/House By The Cemetery has lots of keyboards – in a spare, spooky soundtrack from the early 80s Italian horror scene – a blood-dripping masterpiece from director Lucio Fulcio! Walter Rizzati's music here is heavy on the kinds of electric touches you'd hear from both Goblin or John Carpenter – and often paced at a level that's somewhere between the pair – not as jamming as Goblin, but a bit fuzzier than Carpenter – a blend that makes for some really wonderful numbers that are plenty creepy here on their own – even away from the images on the screen! There's plenty of great bits that creep up on you slowly – and others that jump mercilessly from dark corners – on titles that include "Quella Villa", "I Remember", "Incontro", "Blonk Monster", "Verso Il Terrore", "Voci Dal Terrore", "Tema Bambino", and "Chi Sta Arrivando".

Matthew HalsallInto Forever (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Gondwana (UK), 2015. New Copy (reissue)... About February 25, 2021 (delayed)
The music of Matthew Halsall really opens up here – still staying in the spiritual jazz style we love from earlier records, but with an even more expansive vision overall! The album brings in some added string players to a core group that includes flute, harp, and koto alongside the usual jazz instrumentation – but the overall feel is still quite intimate – as the group's still under the larger assemblage you might think from the "orchestra" on the cover! Instead, the strings act in this way to expand and shade in colors initiated by the various members of the group – at a level that makes the sound incredibly rich, and which gives the harp, piano, and koto even more focus. Halsall's trumpet lines are as wonderful as always – soulfully breathtaking – and the record also features vocals on a number of tracks, from righteous singers Josephine Oniyama and Bryony Jarman Pinto – both of whom hit a 70s current that takes us back to Jean Carn with Doug Carn on the Black Jazz label, or maybe some of the female vocals on the first few Oneness Of Juju albums. Titles include "Only As A Woman", "As I Walk", "Dawn Horizon", "The Land Of", "Jamais Vu", and "Daan Park". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul HornSpecial Edition ... LP
Island, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A great 70s set from Paul Horn – played in a style that's a lot straighter than most of his work from the decade! The style here almost recalls the Paul Horn of earlier jazz years – mellow and laidback, with a real sense of space and sound that's influenced clearly by bossa nova and modal jazz of the 60s, but which also tends to have a freer-thinking 70s sound on the more expansive solos. Horn plays a variety of flutes, plus alto sax and clarinet – and he's joined by Lynn Blessing on vibes, Art Johnson on electric guitar, and Bart Hall on drums and percussion. The core of the set is in a jazz-based mode – and features renditions of tracks that include "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Tribute To Jobim", "Just Because We're Kids", "Willow Weep For Me", and "Summertime" – and the last part of the performance features sparer, spacier numbers that include Horn originals "Dusk", "Forms", and "Dawn".

Far Out (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
A contemporary set, but one that's unlike any other recent Brazilian recording we can think of – given the very unique vibe that Mauricio Maestro is going for! You might know Mauricio from his mid 70s work with Joyce on Visions Of Dawn – and although this set is a recent recording, it has a same sort of classic feel overall. The sound here has deep rhythms and folksy touches – a warm acoustic mode, but topped with some slight electricity and larger arrangements – a bit like some of the more creative sounds in the Brazilian underground during the post-Tropicalia years – yet with a richness that takes it much farther too! Maestro handled the arrangements, and he brings in a jazz-tinged quality that's not unlike the Milton Nascimento generation – yet the overall approach is earthier too, and vocals are handled by Mauricio, percussionist Nana Vasconcelos, and Kay Lyra – swirled up with a bit of light string backings that really help the record soar to the skies! We'd rank this one right up there with classics from the 70s by Joyce or Edu Lobo – but we also recognize that it's very much it's own record too. Titles include "Jungle Bells", "Agua Clara", "Canto Do Paje", "Todos Os Santos", "Ciclo Da Vida", "Ouvindo Estrelas", "Upside Down", and "Horizonte". CD

The style is bouncy Brit pop of the 60s – which has these American songs really coming across in a cool and different sort of way – arranged to perfection by David Whittaker, who may well be the real leading talent of the set – able to beautifully balance electric basslines with larger orchestrations, and still keep things all tight and compact! There's some weird vocals buried in the mix, but most songs are instrumental – and titles include "Wendy", "Warmth Of The Sun", "Girls On The Beach", "Don't Worry Baby", "Big Man In Town", "Ronnie", "Save It For Me", and "Dawn Go Away".

Strut (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A fantastic album from Sun Ra and the Arkestra – one that we'd rank right up there with our favorites on the Saturn Records label! The work here has never been issued, and it's extremely beautiful, too – pulled from a few just-discovered studio sessions done after the group was parting ways with Impulse Records, and mostly recording in a live environment! There's an intimacy to these studio tracks that's a nice difference from some of the more freewheeling live work of the period – moments that almost hearken back to the exotic jazz of the earliest Saturn years of the group, mixed with some other currents that seem to point the way towards the excellent Horo Records material to come – especially in the way Ra is phrasing things on his piano. Most groups are relatively small, and titles include the lovely "Island In The Sun" with Marshall Allen on some great flute; a studio take on "Unmask The Batman", better known from live sets, and a playful tune that hints at the group's work on the Dan & Dale Batman album in the 60s; a spiritual stormer "I'll Wait For You", with great piano from Ra and an excellent tenor solo from John Gilmore; and a take on "New Dawn" with work by Marshall Allen on alto, Elo Umoe on bass clarinet, and Danny Ray Thompson on baritone.

Mindblowing sounds from guitarist Terje Rypdal – one of the most unique players of the 70s, and still very much at the top of his game all these many years later – even after generations have tried to copy his style! The set is a great reminder that the mixture of Rypdal and ECM is a match made in heaven – as the guitarist has a sound that's full of the kind of atmospherics that the label loves to spin out with its trademark production, but also keeps more than enough of his own identity here – never falling into easy modes or soundscape cliches – and always knowing when to step up front sonically when that seems about to happen. Other players include Stale Storlokken on keyboards, Endre Hareide Hallre on Fender and fretless bass, and Pal Thowsen on percussion and drums – on the titles "Dawn", "By His Lonesome", "Conspiracy", "What Was I Thinking", and "As If The Ghost Was Me".

✨✧ Archie SheppAttica Blues ... LP
Impulse, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $119.99
A classic of spiritual, soulful jazz – and one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums! The set was recorded in New York after a few free and festive years in Paris, and it's an amazing about-face that has Archie stepping into a world of righteous, full-on, political, and funky themes – the likes of which are far more outspoken than any of his previous recordings. The group on the set is quite a large one – hip New York underground players, a small string ensemble, and even a few singers – like soul diva Joshie Armstead and vocalist Joe Lee Wilson. Overall, the sound's somewhere in the same place as the Art Ensemble of Chicago's amazing Les Stances A Sophie – in that the record comes from a free jazz tradition, but moves into a more rhythmic focus in order to communicate its message. The added vocals and recitations are wonderful – very moving, and much less hippy-dippy than on other Shepp records of the time – and the whole thing holds together with a unique sound and substance that's made it a treasure that holds up again and again. A true gem, and one we'll never part with! Tracks include "Quiet Dawn", "Goodbye Sweet Pops", "Steam (parts 1 & 2)", "Attica Blues", "Blues For Brother George Jackson", and "Ballad For A Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Vinyl has a small press flaw that clicks a bit during "Blues For Brother George Jackson". Cover has some ring & edge wear, very small seam splits, and a few small splash stains on front.)

Zoot Sims & Bob BrookmeyerTonite's Music Today/Whooeeee (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1956. New Copy 2CDs ... $24.99
Two great Storyville sessions – back to back in a single set! First up is Tonite's Music Today – an early Storyville Records gem from these two budding modernists – featuring a quartet with Zoot Sims on tenor, Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, and Hank Jones on piano and a bit of celeste – a really fantastic group that cuts right to the core of the new ideas that Sims and Brookmeyer were exploring on their horns! Bob's got that sharp sound that really set his valve trombone work apart from the rest – maybe a bit more bite in his tone, too – which could be encouraged by Zoot's tenor, which is at its raspy best in this setting! The Storyville sessions by some artists often get eclipsed by more widely circulated discs on bigger labels – but this is essential early Zoot sims, and Brookmeyer's work is a nice bonus – on titles that include "Mr Moon", "The Chant", "Zoot's Tune", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "Bobby's Tune", and "Blues". Next is Whooeeee – a wonderful small combo set from this unusual team – put together in ways that are somewhere between the Bob Brookmeyer/Stan Getz pairings of the early 50s, and some of Zoot Sims' work for the Dawn label! Zoot's horn is maybe a bit sharper, and bolder than on his Dawn sides, though – that quality that really made him a favorite with hip listeners of the 50s, and which maybe even beats some of the Stan Getz work of the period – matched by Brookmeyer's impeccable work on valve trombone, which is more straightforward and swinging here than usual! The group also features Hank Jones on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Jo Jones on drums – and titles include "The King", "Whoo-eeee", "Morning Fun", "Box Cars", and "Snake Eyes". CD

SuperbsBest Of The Superbs – Lush Harmonies From Los Angeles' Finest Soul Set ... CD
Dore/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Superb soul from The Superbs – a great group from the LA scene of the 60s – and one who never cracked the charts as much as their contemporaries! The group mixes a female voice in with the male harmonies – in a style that doesn't always have the female singer in the lead, but recalls the early Miracles or The Sensations – especially the former, as many of the tunes here really sparkle in a laidback ballad mode that's mighty nice. Other tracks are upbeat groovers with almost a Detroit sort of vibe – great production the group got during this crucial run on Dore Records – one of the better soul music imprints on the west coast in the 60s! The set brings together 24 tracks in all – with rich notes on this overlooked group – and titles include "The Story Book Of Love", "The Wind Is Blowing", "My Heart Isn't In It", "Hold Back The Dawn", "Sad Sad Day", "Where Or When", "Wind In My Sails", "Your Eyes", "He Broke A Young Girl's Heart", "On A Day When It's Raining", and "My Heart Isn't In It".

Ed Thigpen's a mighty young man for his age – a drummer with decades of experience, but easily able to slide into the excellent group of younger musicians here - a crack lineup that features Terence Blanchard on trumpet, Branford Marsalis on soprano and tenor, Roland Hanna on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Bobby Thomas Jr on drums! Ed's recorded so often in a piano trio, that we especially love his albums with horn players – and this date really crackles with the kind of excitement that Thigpen can bring to the right sort of group – almost as if he's showing the world that he could have his own version of the Jazz Messengers if he wanted. Titles include "Shufflin Long", "Oh My Gosh", "Summertime", "Scramble", "Yesterdays", and "Dark Before The Dawn". CD

Catchy dawn of the 70s rock that's rooted in hooks and grooves, but taken to the next level with some killer piano and keys, and production touches! The group's best known for the sublime track that kicks this record off, "Something In The Air", which was covered pretty faithfully by the Flaming Lips – but Thunderclap Newman's original is more timelessly wonderful. The vocals remind us of Pete Townsend at his best, and the whole thing's pretty wonderful.

TortoiseIt's All Around You (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Wow, this is SO not the Tortoise that first set the underground aflame in the early 90s – the group has evolved and opened up in ways we never would have expected. With It's All Around You it's emerged with an airy, open, stargazing set of tracks that resemble the languid atmosphere of Tangerine Dream as much as they do early post rock! Gone, for the most part from early Tortoise is that strong, rubbery electric bass groove and tightly thudding live drum sound. It's All Around You retains the bright vibes and sputtering electronics of the TNT album, and the out front, almost rock & roll guitar lines of the Standards album – and adds an ever present, ambient synthesizer bubble of sound to surround the thing. It's all so catchy, too, and almost sunny. If Tortoise hasn't really broken any new ground this time, it's only because they're the ones who broke it in the first place. Tracks include "It's All Around You", The Lithium Shifts", "Crest", "Stretch", "Dot/Eyes", "By Dawn", "Five Too Many" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Piero UmilianiSmog – Musiche Dalla Colonna Sonora Originale (180 gram vinyl plus bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Rearward (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy ... $26.99
An early jazzy soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – made even better by some key work from Chet Baker on trumpet and Helen Merrill on vocals! The set was done at a time when both artists were spending some time in Italy – shaping the scene with their presence, and really standing out on a handful of rare recordings like this one – quite different than their American material of a few years before! Baker is especially striking – with lead solos that have a great sense of compression, and a depth of soul that really move beyond the Pacific Jazz recordings. And Merrill is wonderful, too – with that special flavor she only ever seemed to open up when she went overseas – and got to move into more unusual settings. But the real star is Umiliani throughout – balancing modern impulses with late night jazz in a way that really points the way towards his later scores in the 60s – but which is already nearly perfect here! Titles include "Smog" (done in instrumental and vocal versions by Baker and Merrill), plus "Dawn", "Tensione", "Tops", "California In The Summer", "Hollywood Tonight", "Bowling", and "Twilight At Los Angeles".

Walker BrothersTake It Easy With The Walker Brothers ... CD
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... About April 29, 2021
Great early work by the Walker Brothers! The record's one of their best, and is way better a look at the group's talents than any of the hit-oriented American ones from the 60s! Scott Walker is right up front on most of the tracks – working at a level that really foreshadows his own solo brilliance in years to come. The arrangements are great – directed by Ivor Raymonde with a style that's really beginning to move beyond simple pop – and the album's got loads of great tunes, including "The Girl I Lost In The Rain", "First Love Never Dies", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore", and "Here Comes The Night". Plus, this version is a greatly-expanded one – with 10 bonus tracks from rare singles and Eps – a good number of which have a bit of a solo Scot Walker quality. Other include "I Need You", "The Seventh Dawn", "Love Her", "You're All Around Me", "Young Man Cried", "Looking For Me", "My Ship Is Coming In", "But I Do", and "Lonely Winds". CD

ATA (UK), 2021. New Copy ... $24.99
Two wonderfully long-flowing tracks from this hip British group – very spiritual and slow-building, with energy that's very much in the best Alice Coltrane mode of the Impulse Records years! Tony Burkill is on tenor, and has this great mellow-burning approach – perfect for the slow-stepping modal groove that's delivered on piano, guitar, bass, and drums! Added horns, voice, harmonium, and other touches come in from time to time – but they never get in the way of the gentle majesty of the instrumentation at the core – the kind of music you'd want playing as you were going to meet the dawn at the start of a very righteous day. Titles include "Dawn" and "Dusk" – but both are very dawn-worthy! LP, Vinyl record album

Brownswood (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A lucky number 13 for the Brownswood Bubblers series – a great reminder that the compilation is still one of the best places we know for getting turned onto new music from the global underground! And by that, we don't mean the lame dance music "underground" of more than a decade ago – where this week's big track would go stale by the next. Instead, this territory is much richer – plumbed by DJ Gilles Peterson via his Worldwide Radio series, and the always-great work of the Brownswood label – an imprint that's dedicated to finding the best sort of genre-crossing, category-defying music we've always loved here at Dusty Groove! The tracks within are proof that in the right hands, soul, jazz, and other styles know no boundaries – or limits of imagination – on cuts that include "Ley Lines" by Emma Jean Thackray, "Nuketown" by Tiana Khasi, "Something My Heart Trusts" by Yazmin Lacey, "Ideas" by Sonnymoon, "No White God" by Oscar #Worldpeace, "Move" by Lynda Dawn, "Sailor" by Wu Lu feat Binisa Bonner, "Only Trying 2 Tell U" by Puma Blue, "Jury Judge Executioner" by Alxnder London, and "Continue The Fun (space version)" by Mauskovic Dance Band.

VariousGolden State Psychedelia ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
San Francisco is well-known as ground zero for the Summer Of Love – and the city gave us plenty of big bands that helped push the new sounds of the 60s firmly into the rock mainstream – but at the same time, the city also housed plenty of lesser-known acts and really experimental groups who were making some amazing sounds that never fully got their due! This set completely corrects that lack – by digging deep into the SF scene of the late 60s, and coming up with handfuls of fuzzy nuggets that show us that there's still plenty to discover from this ultra-rich moment in music – a time when there was so much greatness going down, even a collection like this only scratches the surface. And yet, that scratch is one hell of a treat – as the whole thing's filled with lots of unissued tracks from back in the day, rare singles, and lots more – all originally produced at Golden State Recorders, and documented here in some very well-done notes. Titles include "Blow Up" by The Goody Box, "Meditorium" by The Carnival, "Start Seeing" by The Short Yellow, "Sunday At The Lotus Parlor" by The Gants, "Chasing Rainbows" by The Bristol Boxkite, "Wet Chant" by The Immediate Family, "Daddy's Zoo" by The Tow Away Zone, "Black Diamonds" by Ticket Agents, "Speed" by Celestial Hysteria, "F*ck For Peace" by Magician, "Don't Worry Me" by The Seventh Dawn, and "My Kind Of People" by Just Slightly Richer.

A fantastic collection from the team of Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs – and, like the rest of their gems, a record that really helps define a genre unto itself! This time around, the vibe is England at the dawn of the 70s – waking up to the realization that the changes of the 60s maybe didn't have as much impact as they might, and that the revolution never really happened – captured perfectly here in a mix of melancholy tunes that are heavy on themes of longing and loss! If you loved their previous sets – like English Weather or Three Day Week – you'll find plenty to love here – and as usual, the song selection is superb, with a mix of unusual tunes by familiar names, and lesser-known gems from more obscure acts – all put together with detailed notes that support the whole project. Titles include "Night Time" by Skin Alley, "Station Song Platform Two" by Pete Brown & Piblokto, "Wasting My Time" by Shape Of The Rain, "Come With Me To Jesus" by Mandy Moore, "Home & Where I Long To Be" by Cressida, "Ragged Rain Life" by Duncan Brown, "Leit Motif" by Keith West, "Flying South In Winter" by Tonton Macoute, "Postcards Of Scarborough" by Michael Chapman, "Hidden Treasure" by Traffic, "Sweetness" by Yes, and "I Know That I'm Dreaming" by The Exchange & Mart.

A really cool combination of styles – bossa nova rhythms from Brazil, mixed with French language vocals – often given some very cool twists and turns in the arrangements that really make the music sound unique! Make no mistake, there's a definite Brazilian vibe to these cuts – but that also mixed with elements from 60s French pop and soundtrack work, which makes the whole thing sound wonderfully groovy, and a very fresh take on territory that we already love already! In other words, the combination of "French" and "bossa nova" is even better than you might expect – served up here on titles that include "Vai Vai" by Jean Pierre Sabar, "Corto Maltesse" by Sylvia Fels, "Casa Forte" by Isabelle Aubret, "Pas Tant D'Chici Ponpon" by Jean Constantin, "Le Petit Cuica" by Marpessa Dawn, "La Poupee Des Favelas" by Ann Sorel, "Un Enfant Cafe Au Lait" by Charles Level, "T'As Vu Ce Printems" by Aldo Frank, "HLM Et Cine Roman" by Christianne Legrand, "La Lune" by Francoise Legrand, "Aquarela" by Hit Parade Des Enfants, and "Comme Une Samba" by Frank Gerard.

An excellent collection of rare jazz grooves – the special kind of tracks that effortlessly mix up influences and styles, with a result that makes each and every number a real standout in the set! This is the third volume in the series, and the mix of music is wonderful – tunes from artists who are definitely jazz, and who have sophistication that goes way past familiar funky modes – into territory that's often far-reaching, and influenced by spiritual modes – even though all the tracks have a great little groove! There's plenty of fantastic modal moments in the collection, and although the core energy of the package comes from the 70s underground jazz scene, there's also some great bits from other periods too. Titles include "Nepal" by Bjorn Alkes Kvartette, "Probuzeni" by Jazz Celula "Dawn" by Sangram, "Manteca" by Phineas Newborn Jr, "Pan African Ballet Music" by Karlton Hester & The Contemporary Jazz Art Movement, "Hasta La Victra Siempra" by Copa Salvo, "Impressions" by Stafford James Ensemble, "Middle Passage" by Tyrone Jefferson, "Aladdin's Carpet" by Beaver Harris, and "24 Carat" by Gabor Szabo.

The original sides were produced by Helen Keane, who'd done some of Bill Evans' greatest sets – and who had a real ear for the mellower side of the jazz spectrum. And for the record, she's got Kenny playing in a trio format that's very spacious – with only gentle accompaniment on bass and drums, and most of the sound on the set coming from the strings of Kenny's guitar. Following in the gentle spirit of the set, Kenny even plays an acoustic guitar on some numbers – making for a very different sound than usual. Some tracks are quite long, really letting Kenny open up on his solos – and titles include "So Little Time", "All Blues", "In A Mellow Tone", "In The Still Of The Night", "Tenderly", "Listen To The Dawn", and "You & The Night & The Music".

✨✧ Howard RileyAngle/The Day Will Come ... CD
Columbia/Hux (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of great records from British pianist Howard Riley – an artist who's recorded many dates for small labels over the years, but who virtually got his start on these two rare albums for Columbia! First up is Angle – incredibly fierce work from underrated British piano genius Howard Riley! Riley was a British modernist in the late 60s – and his trio records from the time feature a young Barry Guy, playing excellent accompaniment on bass, in a manner that's a perfect bridge to his later free improv years, but which also shows a strong talent for jazz-based conception. This angular little album is filled with a lot more surprises than we expected, and drummer Alan Jackson's a wonderful third member of this super-tight trio. Titles include "Exit", "Fragment", "Angle", "Gill", and "S&S" – plus "Three Fragments", which features some additional flute from Barbara Thompson. Next is The Day Will Come – the second album by the groundbreaking British jazz trio led by pianist Howard Riley – and one that's even more startling than the first. Riley's trio again includes Barry Guy on bass and Alan Jackson on drums – and the group of them make some incredibly beautiful music that's unlike most of the other jazz we can recall from the period. Sure, there's hints of 60s free jazz, and bits of the progressive turn that would show up in the UK jazz of the 70s – but most of the work is startlingly new, with a conception of piano trio material that's left us breathless. Guy's bass work is especially wonderful – as he changes at will from plucking to bowing to fingering the instrument in strange and wonderful ways. Titles include "Sphere", "Playtime", "Funeral Song", "Winter", "Dawn Vision", and "High". CD

✨✧ Wee GeeHold On (To Your Dreams) ... LP
Cotillion, 1980. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great smooth soul from Wee Gee – a wonderful little record from the dawn of the 80s! The album's a great one, thanks largely to Vernon Bullock, who wrote, arranged, and produced with that uptempo modern style that he brought to his best work of the 70s. The soaring title track is a 10+ minute epic that really transcends – hitting an emotional groove early and holding it throughout – and the rest of the tunes are just as nice! Wee Gee's a pretty decent vocalist – and the lofty arrangements keep him in the groove in a mode that's similar to some of Lamont Dozier's best work. The keys and synthesizers are nice – never oversteeped in ways that mired modern soul later in the decade and they go very will with the larger arrangements! Titles include "Hold On (To Your Dreams)", "Let Me Lay With You", "You've Been A Part Of Me", "Remember The Love", and "Don't Make Me The Reason". LP, Vinyl record album
