Edikanfo Super African BandPace Setters ... CD
EG/Glitterbeat (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $15.99
A classic album from this great group from Ghana – one that probably got more exposure than usual, thanks to the fact that they were taken under the wing of Brian Eno, who produced the album, in a tradition that would stretch back to Ginger Baker's work with Fela! The group have a great sound here – bold, fast-moving rhythms – with elements in Eno's production that almost recall his work with the Talking Heads – especially his way of bringing out the most robust elements in the basslines and percussion! The whole thing is done with a great balance – nicely respectful, but also with a slight updating of the sonic quality – yet never in a way that's got the more commercial inclinations of the world music boom to come. There's some cool moogy moments at time – almost bursting out of the mix in the way that Eno's electronics would pepper some of his early work with Roxy Music – and titles include "Gbenta", "Something Lefeh-O", "Blinking Eyes", and "Moonlight Africa".

✨✧ Jon Hassell & Brian EnoPossible Musics – Fourth World Vol 1 ... CD
EG/Glitterbeat (Germany), 1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible sounds from trumpeter Jon Hassell – a really genre-defining record, and the start of a great run of music for years to come! The album's part of Brian Eno's "fourth world" series – explorations in mixing his own inventive modes with other global styles – but the overall sound really belongs to Hassell, as it draws heavily from the processed sounds of his trumpet – pushing forth in dark waves of sound that are really compelling at an electric level, but very much organic overall. Eno adds in some great ambient touches – and the use of percussion from Nana Vasconcelos and Ayibe Deng give the whole thing a really rich, natural vibe – maybe even more so than any of Hassel's later records! Titles include "Chemistry", "Delta Rain Dream", "Griot (Over Contagious Magic)", "Ba-Benzele", "Rising Thermal 14 16' N 32 38' E" and "Charm (Over Burundi Cloud)". CD

One of our favorites by King Crimson – and a very underrated record from their earlier years – with a lot more jazz than some of their others! Spacey jazz rock mastery from an incredible group of players – including Mel Collins on lots of flutes and saxes – plus guests Keith Tippett on piano, Mark Charig on cornet, and Harry Miller on bass! This great Fripp-approved 2014 pressing is in the original stereo mix! Includes "Formentera Lady", "Sailor's Tale", "The Letters", "Ladies Of The Road", "Prelude: Song Of The Gulls" and "Islands".

✨✧ Brian EnoAmbient 4 – On Land (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EG/Astralwerks, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Brian Eno leaves the Airports, and moves On Land – but still keeps things pretty much in the spare sound of the Ambient series! The lineup here features a few more extra musicians – including Michael Beinhorn on synth, Jon Hassell on trumpet, Axel Gros and Michael Brook on guitars, and Bill Laswell on bass – but all players are used sparingly, and the overall sound hardly acknowledges their presence. Daniel Lanois helped in the recording of some of the material – an early moment in his famous partnership with Eno – and the tracks were recorded over the space of 4 years – with occasional glimmers of the British countryside through the hazy atmospherics of Eno's landscape. Titles include "Lizard Point", "Tal Coat", "Shadow", "A Clearing", "Unfamiliar Wind", "Lantern Marsh", and "The Lost Day". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brian EnoTaking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) ... LP
EG, 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
There's never been anyone like Brian Eno in his early years – and despite countless copycats over the years, nobody comes close to the brilliance of a record like this! There's so much going on here – darkness and wit, guitars and quiet, fantasy and sentimentality – all amazingly blended into tunes that shouldn't be catchy, but are – and which come across much more with the oddly rocking vibe of Eno's years in Roxy Music, than any of his later, better-known ambient projects. Make no mistake, that sense of sound that would grace the ambient works is definitely brewing here – as there's very interesting production, unusual sonic elements, and other surprises taking place throughout – in ways that continue to mesmerize and delight as the years go on. Titles include "Burning Airlines Give You So Much More", "Back In Judy's Jungle", "The Fat Lady Of Limbourg", "Mother Whale Eyeless", "The Great Pretender", "Third Uncle", "Put A Straw Under Baby", "The True Wheel", "China My China", and "Taking Tiger Mountain".

Eivind Aarset/Jan BangSnow Catches On Her Eyelashes ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2021. New Copy ... $22.99 29.99
An album with a really beautiful title – a reference to "My Favorite Things", perhaps – and one that's got a sound that's equally beautiful to match – very different than some of the noisier music we've heard from Eivind Aarset in the past! Yet as with all his other great records, there's a real sense of abstraction here – as Eivind plays guitar, bass, and adds in plenty of electronics – next to work from Jan Bang on a range of samples, programs, and editing – a sense of sound that's layered, sometimes densely, but never darkly – almost taking us back to EG Records territory right at the end of the 70s. The set features a few guests along the way – Nils Petter Molvaer plays trumpet on one track – but most tunes are quite spare, and very lovely. Titles include "Before The Wedding", "Two Days In June", "Purplebright", "Asphalt Lake", "Monochrome", and "Night Spell". LP, Vinyl record album

Jon HassellVernal Equinox ... CD
Lovely/Ndeya, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
To most ears, trumpeter Jon Hassell first burst on to the world through his experiments with Brian Eno on EG Records, or maybe his 80s work on ECM – but here, on his debut for the small avant label Lovely Music, it's clear that Jon's already in complete control of his sound – and is ready to become the kind of performer that would captivate listeners for decades to come! Hassell's horn has that special sort of effect quality on most numbers here – spacey, but never slick – and electrified, but far from any sort of Miles Davis mode – especially considering that the music is full of earthy, organic percussion from Nana Vasconcelos and some other players, who balance out the set's work on Fender Rhodes, Arp, and Serge synthesizer. The spirit of the set is very much in Hassell's classic "fourth world" recordings – and titles include "Toucan Ocean", "Hex", "Blues Nile", "Vernal Equinox", and "Caracas Night September 11, 1975".

Terje RypdalDescendre ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Classic ECM material from guitarist Terje Rypdal – a set that only features a trio, but which has a wonderfully majestic sound all the way through! Terje plays guitar, keyboards, and flute – somehow finding a moody edge on all three instruments – getting perfect accompaniment from the open drums and percussion of Jon Christensen, and the more pointed work on trumpet from Palle Mikkelborg – who often punctuates the music in a really great way! Mikkelborg seems to be processed at points, and also plays a bit of keyboards – and there's a shifting acoustic/electric vibe to the set that's somewhere in the EG Records territory of Jon Hassell – but more guitar-based overall. Titles include "Circles", "Descendre", "Speil", "Men Of Mystery", "Innnseiling", and "Avskjed". CD

✨✧ John Carroll KirbyConflict ... LP
Stones Throw, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Moodily atmospheric work from John Carroll Kirby – an artist here who feels like he'd be right at home in Brian Eno's classic Ambient series for EG Records – mixing his own piano with some richer sonic touches – a small bit of electronics, a few production twists, and some contributions on flute from Logan Hone! The sound is beautiful – swirling echoes that envelop the piano melodies, and turn them into deeper sonic explorations – maybe sometimes with the currents of blue that you'd hear on a Durutti Column record too. Titles include "Anthony Joshua In My House", "Iconic Portraits Mutilated During The Spanish Civil War", "Walking Through A House Where A Family Has Lived", "Wabi", "Who Will Replace Brandon Lee", and "A Pilgrim's Trail".

Eric AlexanderSong Of No Regrets ... CD
High Note, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Eric Alexander is in familiar company here, but he also seems to be using the setting to open up a bit more in terms of his color and groove – sometimes with a looser groove, sometimes with even a gentler approach to his phrasing – but always with that never-ending sense of imagination that we've always loved in his music! Alongside bassist John Webber, drummer Joe Farnsworth, and pianist David Hazeltine, the group also features Alex Diaz on percussion – who brings a bit of complexity to the rhythms, in a mighty nice way – and changes things up from the bottom, in ways that Eric seems to respond to with his horn. The album also features trumpeter Jon Faddis on a few tracks – and his sense of color also seems to bring out a slightly different vibe in Alexander, as the tenor responds in contrast to the more familiar sparkle of Jon's horn. Titles include "Mas Que Nada", "Grinder", "Corazon Perdido", "These Three Words", and "But Here's The Thing". CD

Geri Allen/Charlie Haden/Paul MotianSegments ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1989. Used ... $18.99
Beautiful trio work from Geri Allen – recording here with a great group that features Paul Motian on drums and some especially great work from Charlie Haden on bass! Haden's bass really figures into the sound of most of the songs strongly – almost leading more than Allen's piano, with a sound that's round and deep-toned, and which really brings a great sense of soul to the set – which is then given a nicely punctuated vibe by Allen's strong piano! Motian, as you might expect, is nicely elliptical – able to move all around the kit, but without ever losing control – and although the performances get a bit outside at times, the whole thing's mostly got a strong sense of soul and a tight rhythmic core. Titles include "Law Years", "Segment", "La Pasionaria", "Rain", "Home", and "I'm All Smiles". CD

✨✧ Gregg AllmanLaid Back ... CD
Capricorn/Polydor, 1973. Used ... $5.99
Greg Allman's excellent solo debut – all the more impressive given that it came out just weeks apart from the Allman Brothers' classic Brothers & Sisters – here's a southern rock legend stepping out and showing different sides of his immense talent around the same time his band was also near a creative peak! Greg's uniquely expressive voice is in the spotlight here, on tunes that touch on laid back southern rock, but gospel blues & soul tinged, too, sans guitar heroics for the most part. Includes the eternally great "Midnight Rider", "Queen Of Hearts", "Please Call Home", "Don't Mess Up A Good Thing", a really cool country rock take on "These Days", "Multi-Colored Lady", "All My Friends" and certainly only of the fresher takes "Will The Circle Be Unbroken".

Herb Alpert & The TJBYou Smile – The Song Begins ... LP
A&M, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Nice one from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – working with arranger Quincy Jones! You Smile – The Song Begins comes at a pretty interesting point in which Herb was still working in the Spanish-inflected, jazzy instrumental groove of earlier years – but in a fresh way after a few quiet years. He's also starting to bring in the tighter, soul-based rhythmic sensibility he would more fully explore in the years to come! Bright, wonderful work – with a Bacharach arrangement on "I Might Frighten Her Away", Lani Hall vocals on "Save The Sunlight", and loads of great tunes including "Fox Hunt", "Legend Of The One Eyed Sailor", "Promises, Promises", "Last Tango In Paris", "Alone Again (Naturally)", "Dida" and more.

Somerset/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
Freaky fuzzy guitars from the great Jerry Cole – working here under the name of The Animated Egg – not a real group, but a one-off studio project – yet one that is filled with plenty of great guitar, and some surprising rock funk grooves! The music is much trippier than Jerry's famous surf work – more fuzz on the amps, and a romping sort of rhythm that often takes these tunes right into Cherrystones funky rock territory, which is always treat for ears like ours – and the music veers between hard 60s instrumentals and modder Now Sound territory – thanks to some burning organ alongside the tight guitar and drums! Titles include "Sock It My Way", "Sippin & Trippin", "Dark", "Down Down & Gone", "Tomorrow", "Sur Listic", "I Said She Said Ah Cid", and "A Love Built On Sand". CD

✨✧ ArchivesCarry Me Home – A Reggae Tribute To Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson ... CD
Monsterrat House, 2021. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A record that comes as a real surprise – a concept that might not work if you were to just read the title – but one that opens up beautifully on the album! Part of the record's success might be the fact that The Archives are a group from the same Washington DC scene that once was home to Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson – and they work in a 70s roots-styled approach that has more than enough righteous currents to fit the political messages that were so important in the music of Gil Scott-Heron! The approach is never forced, and we're amazed at how well things slide into the gently-stepping groove without having to sacrifice the lyrical impact at all. The set features versions of "Winter In America", "Rivers Of My Fathers", "Cane", "Revolution Disguised As Change", "Song Of The Wind", "Who'll Pay Reparations On My Soul", "It's Your World", "Peace To With You Brother", and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised".

Very cool Philly work from the 80s – played by a group who've got the same spiritual vibe as underground artists from the decade before! The combo features excellent vibes from Billy Lewis – plus Lamont King and Steve Murphy on saxes, Warren Oree on bass, Greg Jones on drums, and Ed Watkins on percussion – plus a bit of vocals from Sherry Butler.

Baby HueyBaby Huey Story – The Living Legend (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Curtom/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey – and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of all types – working in a party-styled blend of funk, rock, and soul that was one of the most powerful grooves going down in the Windy City at the time! Huey sadly passed away at a very young age, leaving only this full album as his legacy – a great batch of hard-hitting soul tracks that are among some of the funkiest work ever recorded for the legendary Curtom label! The set includes Huey's classic version of "Mighty, Mighty", a club favorite from the live shows – plus the excellent Curtis Mayfield tune "Hard Times", famous as an oft-used sample track! Other titles include "A Change Is Going To Come", "California Dreamin", "Running", and "Mama Get Yourself Together". LP, Vinyl record album

CAM/Sugar (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99 On June 4, 2021
A wonderful early soundtrack from Luis Bacalov – much jazzier than some of his later work, with a vibe that's right up there with some of the more jazz-based work of the Italian scene in the earlier part of the 60s! There's a cool wordless vocal from Nora Orlandi on a few tracks, and nice use of flute, piano, and percussion throughout – varied nicely, but with a really strong song-based sort of approach – so that the album's not entirely jazz in structure, but not far off either! Bacalov's always been great at more dramatic moments, but it's great to hear him working in a style like this – and there's a nice sense of variety on the record, which really keeps things interesting – especially as a few more guitar-based numbers move in to the mix. The sound gets a bit more tense at the end, but is still nice and spare – and titles include "La Strega In Amore", "Aura", "Due Donna Un Enigma", "Seduzione Diabolica", "Danza Greca", "Bruciata Viva", and "Consuleo".

MBJ (UK), 2007. Used ... $11.99
A great revival of this classic British soul ensemble – taken into even funkier territory than before, thanks to help from Bluey, Noel McKoy, and other UK soul legends! The sound is way more funky than you might expect, but also pretty top-shelf too – not small combo deep funk, but a large ensemble of horns next to the tighter rhythm core – all in a blend that reminds us of some of the best Philly backings from the 70s! Vocals are by Camille Hinds, Noel McKoy, and Linton Beckles – but the tracks almost seem to have an equal focus on the instrumentation at the core – a great blend of funk and soul that's possibly even more impressive, given that the album was recorded live. Titles include "Pete's Crusade", "Cosmic Lust", "I Like It", "Time", "London Town", "Movin", "Time", and "Bahia De Palma". CD

A jammingly progressive set from Beggars Opera – a short-lived British group with plenty of great organ work from Alan Park! Beggars Opera are poised halfway between the tighter modes of the beat group years and the more stretched out sound of the classic rock supergroups – and the longish tracks here open up with heavier concepts and keyboard work that almost hints at ELP or Genesis, but still come across with some of the more personal, down-to-earth qualities of the progressive scene. Titles include "Memory", "Passacaglia", "Poet & Peasant", and "Light Cavalry". CD features two mono bonus tracks too! CD

Alston/Strut (UK), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
One of the rarest funky records of all time – the hard-to-find second album by Beginning Of The End! This West Indian combo hit it big with their first album on Alston, but this second set, for some strange reason, never really got distributed – which is a damn shame, because it's every bit as funky as their first! The uniquely choppy rhythms of the group's first album are every bit as great here as on the first set – and if anything, the band's instrumentation is even better, especially on the guitar, which is wickedly tight, and played with a super-dope flanged-out approach on the solos. Vocals are great too, maybe even more soulful than before, especially on the album's few midtempo cuts – and the album's a must-have for any fan of the group's funky sound! Titles include "That's What I Get", "Super Woman", "Bluestrain", "Jump In The Water", "Falling Apart At The Seams", and "Trip To Nowhere". LP, Vinyl record album

Four rare soundtracks from Italian composer Franco Bixio – appearing here on CD for the first time ever! First up is Deserto Di Fuoco – a score that begins with a dreamy wordless vocal theme, but then quickly moves into tenser moments – a kind of low-end, brooding approach to the music which is occasionally cut with some sweeter strings, yet still in a way that preserves the moody vibe of the other cuts! There's one "momento sexy" in the mix, but most of the tunes stay in this formation – kind of a mix of drama with slight currents of Italian warmth. Instantanea Per Un Delitto is a standout score right from the start – especially since the whole thing begins with a tune titled "I Want To Die" – a vocal number that's followed by a fair bit of other vocal tunes too – rockish numbers that almost feel like they were lifted from some Mike Curb/AIP soundtrack in the US – with titles that include "Back To My Baby", "My Sleeping Lady", "Pro9mise", "A Trip Around The World", and "Woman Pig". The soundtrack Diario Segreto Un Carcere Femminile follows – a mix of shorter tunes and warmer themes – sometimes in a lightly erotic mode, but also balanced with a bit of action too – and nice use of spare guitar and piano to evoke some nicely moody moments. There's a few tunes with fuller woodwinds and strings – a nice touch, and much more sensitive than usual for Bixio! Last up is the score for Il Tuo Piacere E'Il Mio – music that's filled with all sorts of weird touches – from spare recorder or harpsichord lines, to some offbeat churchy vocals – used on short tunes that end up with a pretty spooky vibe overall! The 2CD set features 63 tracks in all – done in the great quality we've really come to appreciate from the Quartet label. CD

Third Man, 2011. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $3.99
Rising Detroit hip hop player Black Milk teams up with Detroit-raised rocker Jack White and the latter's Third Man Records team for a pretty great single! Black Milk is backed by the some baddass B3 organ, a tight horn section, bass, drums and we s**t you not, a fiddle on "Brain". It works! "Royal Mega" is nearly as strong on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record

The best album so far from this up-and-coming Colombian group – a great mix of rootsy elements and more electronic production – served up in the forward-reaching style we've come to love in recent projects from the Soundway label! Bomba Estereo are easily one of the most contemporary groups to hit the imprint of late – and they've got no trouble at all moving between upbeat, soulful styles and more earthy levels of instrumentation – all fused together with the kind of warmth and joy we might expect in some of the older productions from Luaka Bop, but with a bit more edge too. Titles include "Bosque", "Bailar Conmigo", "Pa Respirar", "Mozo", "Pajaros", "Pure Love", and "Caribbean Power". CD

✨✧ Roy BuchananIn The Beginning ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Not the first album from Roy Buchanan, despite the title – but a set that helped firmly cement his strong 70s legacy – thanks to plenty of the almost-effortless guitar craft that made Roy one of the key forces to carry blues inspiration towards a more rock-oriented world at the time! Despite his face on the cover, Roy doesn't even sing at all – he leaves that to vocalist Bill Sheffield, who's got a soulful style that really matches the grooves – which leaves Buchanan to spin out all these long, well-crafted guitar lines that are more important to the record than the lyrics. Titles include "I'm A Ram", "In The Beginning", "You're Killing My Love", "Wayfaring Pilgrim", and a nice take on the Cannonball Adderley/Joe Zawinul tune "Country Preacher". CD

Segun BucknorSegun Bucknor ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1975. Used ... $12.99
Seminal sounds from Segun Bucknor – one of the most soulful singers on the Nigerian scene of the 70s, and an artist who can mix funky grooves with some of the deeper currents and moodier themes that you'll hear in Zamrock recordings of the time! The album begins with some excellent upbeat riffing – but also balances things out wonderfully with some slower funk numbers – tunes that used blue organ lines that really fit the spirit of the vocals, while bubbling along a more gentle groove! The sound is pretty darn fresh, all these many years later – and the album's a great illustration of the revolutionary power that Bucknor brought to the scene. Titles include "The Price Of Love", "No Condition Is Permanent", "Everybody Wondering Why I Love You", "The Good Things Of Life", "Tragedy", and "Nigeria One & Forever". CD

CameoUgly Ego/Secret Omen ... CD
Chocolate City/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99 About June 4, 2021
A pair of killers from Cameo – both from their legendary late 70s run! Ugly Ego is one of our favorite albums ever from Cameo – the group's third release! The album's got a great approach that hints at more sophisticated soul styles, but which is still firmly in charge of the bass-driven grooves that made their early albums so great – a compressed approach to the music that was copied by countless other groups at the time, but rarely came off this well! The whole thing's great – filled with excellent cuts that include "I'll Be With You", "Give Love a Chance", "Ugly Ego", "Two of Us", "Friend to Me", "Insane", and "I Want You". Super-dope – with loads of great jams! Secret Omen is a sweet stunner from Cameo – a set that's got the group working with an even tighter, more on the money sound than before – yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial! These guys were one of the first to push the big ensemble funk sound into a leaner approach, and they really live up to that legacy here – impeccably fusing bass, drums, and everything else together – in a groove that lived far beyond disco, really influenced both hip hop and house, and which makes the album one of their real lasting treasures. Groovers include "Macho", "Find My Way", "Energy", and "I Just Want To Be" – and the album also includes the guitar-funk jammer "The Rock", and the stellar stepper "Sparkle" – which is one of our favorite Cameo cuts ever!

Gene ChandlerLive At The Regal ... CD
Collectables, 1965. Used ... $6.99
This landmark live recording by the great Chicago soul singer Gene Chandler is one of the first-ever true live sets by a soul star, and a record that rival's James Brown's Live At the Apollo for true energy and excitement. Recorded live at Chicago's Regal Theater for the long-gone Constellation Records, this set's an amazing batch of tracks performed with more emotion and soul than Gene ever had in the studio, and the crowd's a wild batch of kids who are totally over the top with enthusiasm. The classic version of "Rainbow '65" on here is enough proof of that, what with it's stretched out harmonies, mind-blowing falsetto, and crazy crowd screaming – but there's lots more on here that will prove that Gene was one of the best-ever Chicago singers, including "Song Called Soul", "Just Be True", and "What Now". Great stuff, and totally worth having, even if you don't like Collectables. CD

There's few folks we love more for a cop/crime soundtrack than the great Stelvio Cipriani – as the 70s Italian maestro always has a way of making things groove, but with these cool sophisticated touches that make his music more distinct than most! This set's clearly got an influence from American crime scores from a few years before, but Stelvio takes things in all these cool directions of his own – which include putting in a nice sense of space on the mellower groovers, shifting up some of the instrumentation from the usual, and also bringing in his great ear for a keyboard part at just the right moment!

The flipside features two originals by Don – "Milan" which is a nicely moody club track, almost like the sort we used to love on early Nu Groove, with keyboards doing as much as the beats – and "Agua Es Vida", a track that does a nice job of mixing acoustic percussion samples with beats, all in a warm global sort of vibe! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Miles Davis & John ColtraneFinal Tour – Bootleg Series 6 (4CD set) ... CD
Columbia, 1960. New Copy 4CD ... $43.99 49.98
A fantastic presentation of legendary live material from the team of Miles Davis and John Coltrane – taken from the last concert tour the pair ever did together, and presented here with beautifully stunning sound! The European dates in 1960 were all part of a larger Jazz At The Philharmonic tour – which meant that Norman Granz was on hand to do a great job of capturing the material, which is then given extra-special treatment here for the reissue! Some of these sides have been issued on dodgy overseas collections over the years, but this is the first time all this material has been presented together, and so well – a tremendous illustration of the long solo genius of both Davis and Coltrane, with support from Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. All tracks are very long – and the set features 8 tracks from the Paris concert on March 21, 5 tracks from the Copenhagen concert on March 24, and 9 from the Stockholm concert on March 22. There's also an interview with Coltrane, conducted during the tour – and titles include "Round Midnight", "On Green Dolphin Street", "All Of You", "So What", "Fran Dance", "Walkin", "All Blues", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and "Oleo".

One of the most playful albums we've ever heard from Hamilton De Holanda – a set that features the master instrumentalist on 10 string bandolim, in front of some larger orchestrations – but on tunes that are pulled from a variety of pop culture sources, including some surprising entries from cartoons and video games! Hamilton's command of his instrument is still fantastic – beautifully expressive, and always doing a heck of a lot with just a little – and the larger orchestrations are thoughtfully handled by Leandro Carvalho, in a way that never dims the presence of the lead instrument, but instead inflects its sound with just the right sense of color and space. Titles include "Sitio Do Pica Pau Amarelo", "A Pantera Cor De Rosa", "Super Mario Brothers", "Os Flinstones", "Vida Alegria E Esperanca", and "Dorme Com Os Anjos". CD

A sweet bouncy groover – one of the rare albums of modern soul cut by the group Delegation! The group in this incarnation are a trio – Ray Patterson, Ricky Bailey, and Bruce Dunbar on vocals – stripped-down harmonically, a perfect fit for the album's groove-heavy arrangements. The album's got the same warm finish, with a touch of jazz, that you might find in some of the Arista modern soul albums from the same era – infused with a bit more of a club approach on a few of the more uptempo cuts. Titles include "Blue Girl", "Heartache No 9", "One More Step To Take", "Sho Nuff Sold On You", "Darlin", "You & I", "Stand Up", and "Put A Little Love On Me".

Gregg DiamondGregg Diamond's Star Cruiser ... LP
Marlin, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Gregg Diamond takes his Bionic Boogie sound to a different level – soaring to the skies with a leaner disco groove than before – almost hinting at the coming 80s groove in the process! The rhythms are nice and tight, and often augmented by keyboards that sweeten things up – never overwhelming the overall groove, but packing things in with a mighty nice punch – one that lets the vocals on the record really explode! Most numbers have a chorus singing the spare lyrics – but Diva Gray and Gordon Grody each sing lead on a track each, then give the rest of the record to a backup group that also includes Jocelyn Brown. Our favorite track may well be "Holding Back", which snaps along in a great funky dancefloor groove with some old Bionic Boogie elements – and other cuts include "Arista Vista", "Bring Back Your Love", "Fancy Dancer", and "This Side Of Midnight".

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 90s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A really great project from the legendary saxophonist Manu Dibango – a set that's almost a return to more rootsy territory after his more upbeat grooves of the 80s – even though Manu was always a bit more of a hybrid player overall! The set was originally issued in two different volumes, and was an effort by Dibango to chart the different sounds and styles of the African continent – working with top shelf musicians in a variety of modes – all instrumental, a mix of electric and acoustic, and often with plenty of jazzy elements in the mix! The album is a great overlooked chapter in Manu's career – proof that he kept on evolving, way past his initial hits – still a great saxophonist, branching out here past the sound of his native Cameroon. Titles include "Pavane Pour Melodie", "Longe Lese", "Missiya", "Miango", "Aloko Party", "Oh Koh", "Diana Lama", "Panafrican Jam", and "Parfum Des Iles". CD

Dope gems, indeed – as the album's filled with fierce funky tracks that take us back to the 70s heyday of CTI Records and blacksploitation soundtracks! Yet the sound here isn't just fake retro funk, either – it's really well-crafted, jazz-heavy work that's filled with sweet vibes, keyboards, and massively heavy drums – all at a level that feels like some lost Johnny Lytle soundtrack for a black action film, or maybe an undiscovered Bobby Hutcherson gem from mid 70s Blue Note, or even an unreleased second album from Stark Reality! These guys are totally great on every single track – no too-modern production or any programs to ruin the spontaneous energy of the groove – and titles include a great remake of "Theme From 3 Days Of The Condor", plus "It's Your Love", "Quasar", "Like A Thief In The Night", "Solstice", "I Work The Whole City", and "Footsteps In The Dark".

Okka Disk, 2002. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
Two important improvising trios come together head to head in the transatlantic brilliance of Okka Disk Records in the 90s – recorded in a very unusual way that lets you clearly hear all the contributions of the members of the group! In the left channel stands AALY – a searing lineup of Mats Gustafsson on alto and tenor, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Kjell Nordeson on drums – and in the right channel stands DKV, with Ken Vandermark on tenor and bass clarinet, Kent Kessler on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – a mighty meeting of musicians who are really at the top of their improvising game! Rather than come on head-to-head, it's amazing to hear the way that these well-matched trios open up to each other – especially the bassists and drummers, who are maybe less familiar in this setting than Vandermark and Gustafsson, who were an instantly amazing musical pair. The set begins with the original "Left To Right", then the group makes real magic over the course of 51 minutes, in a piece that offers variations on Albert Ayler's "Angels" and Don Cherry's "Awake Nu".

New Jazz/Prestige, 1961/1962. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Revolutionary work from one of the most important talents you never heard of – 2 jazz/world classics from the amazing Ahmed Abdul-Malik! The CD begins with The Music Of Ahmed Abdul Malik from 1961 – a record that has the bassist working in a very sophisticated cross-cultural mode – pulling together many different strands of jazz and Eastern music, forging them into a very unique sound. Unlike some of Malik's other records, which featured a style that was very heavy on Middle Eastern instrumentation, this one's got a very even blend of jazz – and features excellent work by Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, Calo Scott on cello, Eric Dixon on tenor, and Andrew Cyrille on drums. Malik himself plays bass and oud, and the record's got a snaking mix of jazz and exoticism that's roughly similar to Yusef Lateef's work on Savoy, or some of Sun Ra's work from the time. Titles include "Nights On Saturn", "La Ibkey", "The Hustlers", and "Oud Blues". Sounds Of Africa is one of Malik's greatest – a combination of both his modern and experimental sides, a mixture of off-key hardbop and odd instrumentation that includes cello, oud, and lots of extra percussion. The fantastic Tommy Turrentine plays trumpet on one cut, Richard Williams plays on all others – and the percussionists include Chief Bey, Montego Joe, and Andrew Cyrille! Titles include "The African Bossa Nova", "Wakida Hena", "Communication", "Suffering", and "Nadusilma". CD

ECM (Japan), 1978. Used ... $19.99
A record full of rich tones and cascadingly lyrical lines – and a set that features the wonderful pairing of John Abercrombie's guitar and the piano of Richie Beirach! Beirach seems to ground Abercrombie even more than usual – still letting John have those atmospheric qualities in his notes, but with a sense of flow and focus that we really appreciate – energy that might also come from the work of George Mraz on bass, and Peter Donald on drums. Tunes are simple and elegant, but say a hell of a lot with a little – and the album's maybe as perfect a summation of the ECM approach to guitar at its best as some of the early Pat Metheny albums. Titles include "Arcade", "Nightlake", "Neptune", "Alchemy", and "Paramour". CD

✨✧ George Adams & Don PullenMetamorphosis (aka City Gates) ... LP
Timeless (Japan), 1983. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
George Adams and Don Pullen knock it out of the park on this one – finding great company in each other's presence, and really moving things forward in the process! The set begins with a long track titled "Mingus Metamorphosis", and that really sums up the spirit of the record – an 80s reworking of all the ideas that the players had learned from Mingus, but with an individual, personal sense that's all their own – and very different than some of the more standard modes of the Mingus Dynasty group that continued the legacy in a more direct manner. Adams is bold one minute, lyrical the next – and plays both tenor and flute – alongside Pullen on piano, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. Titles include "Mingus Metamorphosis", "Samba For Now", "City Gates", "Thank You Very Much Mr Monk", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen". LP, Vinyl record album

George Adams, Martin Hannibal Peterson & FriendsMore Sightings ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $16.99
An unusual date from tenorist George Adams – recorded right around the same time as his legendary records with Don Pullen, but instead a more unusual partnership with the great trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson! The pairing is great – and both hornmen soar out and really get plenty of room to do their thing – in a mixture of hardbop energy and more spiritual currents, with help from John Scofield on guitar, Ron Burton on piano, Walter Schmocker on bass, and Allen Nelson on drums. The energy is maybe a bit more like some of Peterson's late 70s records than some of the Adams/Pullen material – and that quality makes the live date a nice standout in the catalog of both players. Titles include "Soul Brothers", "Do We Know Where We Are Going", "Melanie", "More Sightings", and "Don't Take Your Love From Me". CD

Nat AdderleyGood Company ... CD
Challenge/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1994. New Copy ... $16.99
The legendary Nat Adderley is definitely in good company here – a group with excellent work on alto from Antonio Hart – a player who comes off in a very different way than the famous alto of Nat's late brother, Cannonball! Antonio seems to open up some nicely dark currents in Adderley's music – underscored by the piano work of Rob Bargard, who can do a great job of shading things in from below – while the whole group moves with great rhythm work from the team of Walter Booker on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Tunes include two great Bargard originals – "Rob's New Tune" and "War Zone" – plus versions of "Rwanda", "Sermonette", "Corcovado", and "Unit Seven". CD

John AddisonBridge Too Far (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1977. New Copy 2CDs ... $43.99
One of the greatest 70s moments from film composer John Addison – music scored for an all-star movie that was maybe a bit too all-star in the long run – but which features Addison really knocking it out of the park with the music! The vibe is more like the best 60s war dramas than you'd guess from the date – orchestrations that mix together bold passages of action with some more subtle dramatic moments – woodwinds and strings used by Addison with effortless ease, and often some nicely dark touches lurking in the deep backgrounds! Titles include "Human Roadblock", "Nijmegen Bridge", "Underground Resistance", "Before The Holocaust", "A Dutch Rhapsody", and "March Of The Paratroopers". 2CD edition – the original soundtrack album, plus a huge amount of bonus tracks – 35 more numbers from the original film recordings, wrapped up with very detailed notes as well!

✨✧ AfronautAfrican Lounge Experience ... CD
African Cream, 2007. Used ... $5.99
Nothing too loungey here – and instead, the record's a nice blend of older South African modes and contemporary styles – some nicely mellow grooves from the Afronaut trio! The grooves are a bit downtempo at times, but with a lot more going on than just beats and a few stray sounds – some jazzier touches in the instrumentation, and lots of warm moments on bass and keys. Some of the best cuts have gently soulful vocals, and titles include "Senegal Soul", "Unkunwaba", "Mparra", "Phula", "Liya Buya", and "Eeze Now". CD

Agitation FreeLast ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1976. New Copy ... $29.99
The last album from the legendary early run of Agitation Free – and a set that definitely shows the group at the top of their game! The tracks are long, but never rambling – jamming, but never in a noodly way – and these guys really show why their contribution to German prog was so important at the time – able to handle some of the minimal progressions of their contemporaries, while finding a way to soar forward too – yet always with a sound that's completely fresh and free of cliche! Keyboards and guitar spiral out wonderfully together, and looped a bit in some really great ways – and titles include "Soundpool", "Laila II", and "Looping IV". LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmed (Pat Thomas/Antonin Gerbal/Joel Grip/Seymour Wright)Nights On Saturn (Communication) ... LP
Astral Spirits, 2021. New Copy ... $15.99 20.99
That's a picture of legendary bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik on the cover, and the title of the record hints at the legacy of Sun Ra – both references that should really give you an idea of the spirit of the sound within! The liner notes are by pianist Pat Thomas, who calls for a deeper exploration of the influence of West African Islamic culture on American jazz – but despite that text, and the group's name, the overall feel of the record is very much in the full-voiced sort of improvisation that we've come to love from Thomas in many different settings over the years! The quartet features Seymour Wright on alto, Joel Grip on bass, and Antonin Gerbal on drums – and all players do a great job of playing freely, but also handling the sound in these chunks that are inherently rhythmic, even though they've got a very different feel than standard jazz changes! Wright is especially compelling – with these repeated cries on alto that really give a special voice to the record – and the group performs one long improvisation, recorded at London's Cafe OTO.
