Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate – Early Show/Late Show ... LP
FM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have a slightly different spirit. Backing is by a small group that includes Mundell Lowe on guitar, Ronnie Ball on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Shaunessy on drums – and the liveness of the recording really comes through, in a way that gets more at the boozy Chris of late nite clubs than you'd hear on most of her studio albums. Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "Old Devil Moon", "Goodbye", "Only The Lonely", "Black Coffee", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Only The Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – with deep groove. Cover has a light mark from a sticker in one corner, but is nice overall.)

FM, 1963. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Folksy soul from George Anderson – an African singer by birth, recording here in a Paris studio, and singing in a mode that's a bit like some of Miriam Makeba's recordings from the time. George is on lead vocals and acoustic guitar – and most tracks have rather spare backings, with only a bit of percussion behind George. Titles include "Misia Na Misia", "Ngosso", "Yeyo Mebolo", and "Ewolo Mese". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter DuchinThat Duchin Touch ... LP
Decca, 1965. Sealed ... $4.99
The Duchin touch is a gentle one – slightly more spacious and resonant than some of the other 60s pop piano instrumentalists – captured here with some light orchestral backings, at a point when Peter was changing up his style a bit! There's still some of the romanticism of earlier years on the set, but you can also hear Duchin's more youthful approach to this kind of music coming through – a style that was more in tune with the rise of easy on FM radio at the end of the decade, than the greater drama that was needed to compete on the AM airwaves. Titles include "The Best Is Yet To Come", "Daydreams", "If I Were A Bell", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", and "Call Me Irresponsible". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MitchellFunktion Junction ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Tight backings and sharp trumpet from Blue Mitchell – a great RCA Records set that's kind of a mid 70s extension of the work he was doing on Mainstream! As with some of the Mainstream Records – and some of his late 60s Blue Note work as well – Blue is the lead soloists over larger backings – sometimes with a Kudu Records vibe, sometimes a bit more soul in the mix – as the record features vocals from Patti Austin and a young Gwen Guthrie too. Titles include the clubby "Love Machine" – plus "Then Came You", "AM FM Blues", "Delilah", and "Collaborations". LP, Vinyl record album

PharrellIn My Mind (Clean Edited Promo) ... LP
Star Trak/Universal, 2006. Near Mint- 2LP ... $11.99
Pharrell's first solo album. After the many months of anticipation between the release of the first single and the oft-delayed street date, we've had a ample time to wonder which Pharrell would take the lead – the electro-thumping, hip hop revisionist producer with the laidback rhymes, or the Curtis Mayfield-vocal loving, sex-obsessed pop crooner – and it turns out we get both in just about equal measure! It's no surprise to us, but we'll be far happier to hear these tracks popping on the FM than just about any summer jam radio cuts we can think of! Tracks include "Can I Have It Like That" feat Gwen Stefani, "How Does It Feel?", "Raspy S**t", "Best Friend", "You Can Do It Too", "Keep It Playa" feat Slim Thug, "That Girl" feat Snoop Dogg, "Angel", "Young Girl/I Really Like You" feat Jay Z, "Stay With Me" feat Pusha T, "Easy" feat Nelly, "Number One" feat Kanye West and more.

Sopwith CamelMiraculous Hump Returns From The Moon (marble smoke vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A really wonderful little record – by a group who should have been much bigger than they were! Despite the fact that these guys are an obscure rock band with a silly name, the record's a perfect example of the subtly soulful work that was coming out of various west coast sources during the 70s – the kind of album-oriented work that yielded gems for play on underground FM radio, but which has been mostly lost to the shifting sands of time, save for some well-placed rescue in the reissue scene. The gem on this one is the smooth stepper "Fazon", but the album's got a few other nice ones too, with a jazzy tinge that's almost in debt to Mose Allison or Ben Sidran – that kind of cool blend of many elements with younger ideas that was bubbling up on the Bay Area scene. Titles include "Dancin Wizard", "Monkeys On the Moon", "Sneaky Smith", and "Astronaut Food". LP, Vinyl record album

Starship 9Starship 9 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 2018. Used ... $6.99
A pretty cool contemporary group – one who are lucky enough to record for the legendary Cinevox soundtrack label, and who have a sound that definitely matches the vibe of that company's long legacy of music! The style here is very cinematic at times – with some slinky, groovy moments that feel like they're lifted right from 60s or 70s Italian film scores – but there's also a fair bit of vocals, too – lyrics that kind of slide in and out of the music in a nice way, again almost like a vocal tune on a cinematic outing – although a few even feel like some of our favorite British indie work of the early 80s.. Titles include "Cinema Roma", "Love Premiere", "Home Again", "Andromeda", "Berlin", "Stelvio FM", "Dedicato A Una Stella", and "Dust & Flowers". Also includes the bonus tracks "Stelvio (Quei Giorni Insieme)" and "Home Again (vocoder mix)". CD

SweetbottomTurn Me Loose ... LP
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1979. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Guitar-heavy fusion from Sweetbottom – one of those late 70s groups that definitely brought a rock into play with their jazz! In fact, this album's got more vocals than the group's previous efforts – definitely heading for the kind of mature, FM radio mode of the time – cats schooled on more leftfield work in the early part of the decade, looking for some more adult ways to rock out as the years went on. Titles include "Turn Me Loose, "Endless Fantasy", "She'll Never Be Back", "One Night Stand", "Do Some Damage", and "Flight To Maricaibo". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBrunswick & Dakar 12 Inch Singles Collection Vol 3 ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work from the later years of Brunswick Records – a time when the company briefly re-emerged as a surprising force on the hipper dancefloors of the time – thanks to a great run of funky club, soulful disco, and seminal boogie tracks! Brunswick didn't issue many albums at the time – and they were quite far from their hit years of the early 70s – but their 12" output from the period is wonderful, and way more than just the usual throwaway work for the discos – done with a real sense of quality, and a devotion to both funk and soul undercurrents that really keep things strong. Titles on this great 3rd volume include "Don't Say Goodnight" and "Love Me Today" by First Love, instrumental and vocal versions of "I Wanna Boogie With You" by Charlie Singleton & Stargasm, "Jammin Big Guitar" and "Rockin Big Guitar" by Vaughan Mason, vocal and instrumental versions of "Word Up" by Legacy, vocal and instrumental versions of "Gimme The Funk" by Charade, "Rock The House (parts 1 & 2)" by Elite, and the fantastic groover "You Are The One" by AM/FM.

✨✧ MedusaFirst Step Beyond ... LP
Numero, 1975. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Chicago scene of the 70s – an unreleased gem from Medusa – a group who really know how to go head to head with some of the most frenetic acts of their generation! The set's got a blistering array of guitars right up front in the mix – brilliant solos that are very much in the metal mode, yet without all the posturing that usually comes along with such dexterity – a style that's often more content to hide behind the larger, darker trappings of the entire group! There's plenty of cuts on the set that would have set late night FM radio on fire at the time – plus a few more than would definitely have been too dangerous for the airwaves too – and Numero's done a wonderful job of resurrecting this lost nugget – giving it a lavish velvet-covered jacket, with the kind of presentation that no big record labels would have paid for at the time! Titles include "Strangulation", "Temptress", "Feelings Of Indifference", "Black Wizard", "Frustration's Fool", and "Unknown Fear". LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Hat (UK), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Herbie Hancock and his mighty Headhunters group playing live in Omaha in 1975 – in a set that may well have been the hippest thing to happen in Nebraska that year! The performance follows strongly off of Herbie's famous albums with the combo – with that perfect mix of cosmic elements and heavy funk, both of which really get their chance to step out in the longer, more extended passages in the concert – which features excellent work from Bennie Maupin on reeds, Paul Jackson on bass, Bill Summers on percussion, DeWayne McKnight on guitar, and Mike Clarke on drums – plus plenty of sweet keyboards from Herbie himself. The set was recorded for FM radio at the time – and titles include "Bubbles", "Hang Up Your Hang Ups", "Heartbeat", "Shekere", "Watermelon Man", and "Steppin In It". CD

No Business (Lithuania), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99
A long improvisation with lots of angles and dark corners – served up in a way that really builds up tension, while also providing lots of compelling stops along the journey! The music is never too full-on, but always has a sense of complexity – strong interplay between the group right from the start, with Martin Blume on drums and percussion, Tobias Delius on tenor and clarinet, Achim Kaufmann on piano, and Dieter Manderscheid on bass. Things get a bit more tentative in the last third of the record – before the tension builds up again right at the end! LP, Vinyl record album

A double-disc set that documents the live efforts of the Free Music Ensemble – a power trio featuring Ken Vandermark on reeds, Nat McBride on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! The style here is very much in the legacy of Vandermark's trio work of years past, especially in association with Scandinavian players – a mix of searingly intense numbers and other more introspective ones – often performances that are focused strongly around sound textures. One CD here features a 2005 Boston show, and the other includes a concert the next day, recorded up in Montreal (some travel schedule there!). Titles include "Exit The Republic", "Drift", "But Only Almost", "False Rabbit", "On A Wire", "Looking At Dutch Stairs", "New Reference", "Ottica", and "Montage". CD

A bold statement from the Free Music Ensemble – not a large group, but instead a searing power trio that features Ken Vandermark on reeds, Nate McBride on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! The group work in a full-on mode that recalls the early power of the FMP scene, or some of the most striking work on ESP from the 60s – but given Vandermark's influence, they've also got a more open sensibility – clear in the shift from passage to passage of the album's numbered tracks, dedicated to influential heroes that include Peter Brotzmann, Paul Lytton, Joe Morris, and Joe McPhee – all contemporary heroes that are given great due here, but in a way that still has the trio retaining a very strong identity of their own.

Moe KoffmanMoe's Curried Soul ... LP
Kama Sutra, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A trippy trippy bit of funk from Moe Koffman – recorded after his big "Swinging Shepherd" instrumental hit of the early 60s – but a few years before his more experimental sessions of the 70s! The style here is mod hippie 60s flute jazz – with Moe blowing in a soul jazz mode that's clearly influenced by the sound of Herbie Mann's hits, but backed by a set of arrangements that have a much groovier feel – lots of hard bass, heavy drums, and fuzzed-up guitars – plus a nice electric undercurrent that gives the set a strong Head Jazz sort of feel. Extremely groovy throughout – and featuring the tracks "Curried Soul", "Sunshine Superman", "Cantelope Island", "Anteaters Song", and "Country Song". LP, Vinyl record album

The pair add in a nice heavy sound, giving the tunes a bit more soul than usual, thanks to a wonderful sensitivity for a nicely placed riff. Titles that get the remix treatment include "Never Say?" by James Bong, "Look Up Dere" by Kama, "Keep On Believing" by Beanfield, "A Mother" by Herbalizer, "Spellbound" by Tango, "Give My Soul" by The Lab Rats", and they even manage to sneak in their own classic "High Noon"!

✨✧ Moe Koffman QuintetShepherd Swings Again ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Flute man Moe Koffman was one of the strongest jazz talents on his instrument in the late 50s – an artist whose work on records like this may well have paved the ground for the success of Herbie Mann and others to come! The title's a play on Moe's earlier work on the "Swingin Shepherd" tune – a surprise instrumental hit, with a very sprightly groove – but the approach here is much more jazz overall, and really lets Koffman show off his chops – including a few points at which he blows alto sax too! The arrangements are fresh, and slightly modern – and the group features Ed Bickert on guitar, Hugh Currie on bass, and Ron Rully on drums – on titles that include "Marty's Mourge", "What Can You Do", "Doxy", "Sure It Is", "Alone Together", and "Cloud Nine".

✨✧ Kruder & DorfmeisterG-Stoned ... CD
G Stone (Germany), 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive!! When this EP first came out in the mid 90s, it totally changed the face of modern music – and introduced the concept of abstract downtempo to a very juiced-up modern funk world! Kruder & Dorfmeister took the spare subtle funky sound of labels like CTI and Kudu, and reworked their feel into a whole new style for the modern funk generation. The result is this masterful EP – which is virtually the blueprint for the whole trip hop abstract movement of the past decade – but it's way better, and way deeper than most of that stuff. (It's also still the only real moment of genius that Kruder & Dorfmeister ever had!) The set's made up of 4 fantastic tracks that meander and wallow, but never lose their groove. Titles include "High Noon", "Original Bedroom Rockers", "Deep Shit", and "Definition". CD

Powerful work from the Free Music Ensemble of Ken Vandermark, Paal Nilssen-Love, and Nate McBride – a set recorded in Oslo with the intensity of some of the older power trio sessions from the Scandinavian scene! Vandermark, as always, is a commanding presence on reeds – blowing with all the capable imagination of previous albums, but always deepening in tone with each new release – and Paal Nilssen-Love's drums are fast, frenetic, yet always nicely pulsating – giving a sense of energy to the album that pushes the whole thing along nicely, but never exhausts its imagination. McBride's bass gets some nice moments of quieter sonic presence – and titles include "Necessary/Reset/Slip", "Other Side Up/Boadas", "Heavy Light", and "Broken". CD

The session is a landmark meeting of 8 important talents on the European free scene of the 60s – Sven Johansson on drums, Peter Kowald on bass, Willem Breuker on tenor, Fred Van Hove on piano, Evan Parker on tenor, and Han Bennink on drums – all working in an incredibly powerful blend that has all the ferocity of a machine gun let loose! Features the classic "Machine Gun", "Responsible" and "Music For Han Bennink". CD

A record that seemed to open the music of Peter Brotzmann up for a whole new generation of listeners – in part because it features the European legend on an American label that got him some of the widest circulation he'd enjoyed here in years – and also in part because drummer Hamid Drake provides a very different foil for his music! The sound is almost an imaginary 70s meeting between the FMP and loft jazz scenes – with Hamid offering up these beautifully rich tones on standard drums, frame drum, and tablas – while Brotzmann blows tenor, alto, tarogato, and e flat clarinet – often with a sound that's searing, but more soulful than usual too – especially on some of the more spacious, open moments on the record. Titles include "It's An Angel On The Door", "Trees Have Roots In The Earth", "The Uninvited Entertainer", and "Dark Wings Carry Off The Sky". CD

JG/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
Very rare, very obscure material from this important free jazz trio of the German scene in the 70s – a set that features one long performance originally issued on the JG label, despite the FMP-like image on the cover – plus two more tracks from the same year that appear here for the first time ever! "Just For Altena" offers up the power trio at their best – very freewheeling piano from Fred Van Hove, drums from Han Bennink, and tenor from Peter Brotzmann – with intensity that may well surpass the Machine Gun years, and an understanding of each players strengths that means that there's almost no tentative moments at all in the improvisation! "Filet Americain" and "ICP No 17" are from earlier in 1971 – and showcase a different, more sonic side of the trio – some tones that are at the farther end of hearing, which ruminate then blossom into bolder statements, but still often with a very abstracted approach to each instrument. Great stuff – and every bit as essential as any of the better-known Brotzman recordings of the time! CD

Yet the record's a monster that stands equally with Marion's seminal sides for Impulse and ESP – and is maybe even bolder than both of them, as Brown blows alto in a loose trio – with Maarten Van Altena on bass and Han Bennink on drums – in a mode that definitely puts the "free" in free jazz – recorded before the start of both FMP and BYG! Yet there's also that sensitive, soulful quality that makes Brown so great – that element in the music that's always had recordings like these as key pointers forwards to the loft jazz years on the NYC scene – a brilliant blend of freedom and inner spirit – on titles that include "Sound Structure", "QBIC", "Porto Novo", and "Similar Limits".

Rudiger Carl IncKing Alcohol (New Version) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
FMP/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1972. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... $15.99
Maybe the greatest moment ever on record from Rudiger Carl – and not just because the album is "dedicated to all drinker friends"! Despite that embrace of alcohol, the record's got a very sobering power – as the group is a free jazz trio, working in the best bracing early FMP way – with Carl on tenor, Gunter Christmann on trombone, and Detlef Shoenenberg on drums – all turning their instruments inside out as they madly, freely, explosively work off the power of one another! Christmann is especially amazing – and this album might well be to his trombone what the late 60s FMP sides were to Brotzmann's tenor – although Detlef's drums are pretty amazing too – very different than any contemporaries or precursors, and worth the price of admission alone. Titles include "Thrombose", "King Alcohol", "AEIOU", and "Rush Hour/Something/Triotrip". Plus, this 2CD reissue adds in an astounding 70 more minutes of unreleased recordings from the same sessions!

Adam Cooper & Nile Southern (editors)Chicago 1968 – The Whole World Is Watching (hardcover) ... Book
Hat & Beard, 2018. New Copy ... $52.99 60.00
A beautiful expansion of a famous moment in creative journalism – the famous 1968 issue of Esquire magazine that featured William S Burroughs, Terry Southern, Allen Ginsberg, Jean Genet, and Abbie Hoffman at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago! The results of that tumultuous event have been well-documented – but the special selection of correspondents was very unique – and was also documented heavily by photographer Michael Cooper. Cooper's shots appeared in the large special issue of the magazine in 1968 – but this book expands way past those shots, with dozens more taken at the time – showing the conflict in the street, the literary figures in action, and everything else that was happening at the time. The book includes expanded writings by Southern, too – and has a great balance of text and image, with 130 pages that mix black and white photos with writings. Book

An excellent bit of modern space funk – with lots of great keyboard work, layered over heavy beats and percussion twists that add a slight touch of Latin and Brazilian to the groove.

Compost/Quango, 2003. Used ... $1.99
One of our favorite albums of the early 00's – remixed! Waltz For Koop was an amazing debut for Koop – a set of tunes that drew heavily from real jazz of the 60s and 70s, and which fit perfectly in a tradition of modal jazz grooves that stretched back to the glory days of the European MPS scene! The tracks were all instant classics that helped restore our faith in modern music – and here, they're getting some really loving treatment from a host of remixers that include some of the best of the current European club jazz underground. Titles include "Baby (O Malicious rmx)", "Tonight (Nicola Conte new jazz version)", "Summer (Markus Enochson rmx)", "Bright Nights (Rima techno chimp dub)", "Summer Sun (Carlito rmx)", "Waltz For Koop (DJ Patife rmx)", "Relaxin At Club F***n (Dorfmeister vs Madrid De Los Austrias rmx)", and "Modal Mile (2 Banks Of 4 rmx)".

Two legendary tenorists, coming together here in a record that's one of the most striking from both players at the time – a real return to the spare space of some of Joe McPhee's earliest albums, and some of the sharper edges that Evan Parker wasn't always giving us in the 90s! The setting is as basic as the title, but the sound is amazing – two giants, freely improvising in open space – making some amazing textures and tones together, but really shifting in mood from track to track – at a level that's completely spellbinding all the way through – a record that bristles with the kind of energy you'd expect from an older FMP session. An instant avant classic – with a total of 11 tracks in all! CD

A few years after the breakup of the Kruder & Dorfmeister team, Peter Kruder dropped his Peace Orchestra set on the world – raising the bar forever for excursions into downtempo beats and jazz. This set reworks Kruder's original album, and features work from a number of Europe's best jazz-based remixers and producers – expanding Kruder's original vision into a range of sounds and styles, lots of warm grooves flowering out of the skeleton of the previous LP! The overall approach is quite different and actually much more compelling than the original – and tracks include "The Man" remixed by Gotan Project, "Meister Petz" remixed by Beanfield, "Henry" remixed by Zero Db, "Domination" remixed by Raw Deal, "Double Drums" by DJ DSL, "Shining" by Truby Trio, "Who Am I" by Chateau Flight, and "Henry" by Soul Patrol.

A record that got huge circulation at a worldwide level – maybe making PFM one of the most-exposed groups of the legendary Italian scene in the early 70s – a wave of groups that took strong inspiration from the sounds of Yes, Genesis, and other UK acts – but really pushed the music with their own sense of creativity! The cuts on the album aren't just jamming rock – but really show a more expansive view, as long instrumental passages almost seem to draw from jazz or soundtrack complexity – with especially nice guitar, flute, violin, and keyboard lines – and vocals come in at just the right moments to send things home. Titles include "Mr 9 Til 5", "Old Rain", "Celebration", "River Of Life", and "Photos Of Ghosts". CD

FMP/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1975. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
A seminal album from Hans Reichel – a musician who might be to free jazz what John Fahey was to acoustic music – a player who can at once be immediately modern and completely timeless in his approach – working here in a way that opens up the instrument beyond any conventional expectations! Many of these tracks have an inherent cyclical pulse – a bit like the way that Fahey could mix Eastern elements with blues inspiration – but there's also a more chromatic approach to the instrument, and ways of playing that go beyond simple notes – so that each touch of a string is almost like a little explosion of color – explosions that work together to make some amazing sounds throughout! Titles include "Bonobo I", "Peter Zweifel", "Lurch", "Toeni", "Moor", "Nicht Sand Sondern Popel Im Getriebe", and "Mariahhilf". CD

Overlooked work by one of the true guitar geniuses of the 70s – an artist who should be right up there with Derek Bailey and Fred Frith – especially with groundbreaking work of this nature! Hans Reichel has a very unique approach to the electric – one that's both very deft on the strings, but also has a sonic sensibility that almost seems to use the instrument to trigger sounds as much as to create notes – moments that are often quite melodic, even when free – shifting between the infinite tonal possibilities of the guitar and some of its textural elements too. Some of Reichel's later work wasn't as great as his 70s output – but this album's a tremendous and well-lauded classic! Titles include "Lupi", "Shaved Guitar", "Krampfhandlugen", and "Alfons Al Piepenbrink & His Lonely Wah Wah Pedal". CD

A mighty mighty album that recalls the glory days of the FMP scene – a triple-talent terror that features the massive reed work of Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, and Peter Brotzmann! Given that Gustafsson and Vandermark are the two key heirs to the sound that Brotzmann first forged back in the 60s and 70s, the pairing is a perfect one – and somehow, the trio manage to find even more strength, energy, and creativity working together on this set than on any of their recent pairings. Tracks are spare, improvised, and beautifully creative – and titles include "Elements Of Refusal", "Broken Hymn", "Hammer Requiem", "Blessed Assurance Uninsured", "No One Ever Works Alone", and "Death Can Only Kill Me Once".

The downtempo legacy of Tosca continues – and is still really the strongest link to the Kruder & Dorfmeister sound that first got things going years back! Richard Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber work here in a warmly soulful set of tunes that show them both mellowing with age – but in a really good way – one that's going for gentler grooves, deeper rhythms, and an overall more confident approach that relies less on gimmicks and posturing, and more on unified song structures that keep the K&D legacy strong.

FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Amazing work from this seminal group on the FMP scene – a quartet led by pianist Alexander Von Schlippenbach, but equally balanced between the saxes of Evan Parker, bass of Peter Kowald, and percussion of Paul Lovens! We're not sure how much to take the "nails" in the title seriously, but it does sound as if Schlippenbach is playing prepared piano at times – or perhaps his command of the keyboard is just so strong, he can make other-worldly elements come from the instrument whenever he wants! Much of the music has a full-on FMP intensity – that non-stop, sonically adventurous quality inherited from Machine Gun – spun out over three great live improvisations, titled "Range", "Black Holes", and "Three Nails Left".

Fantastic sounds from the grittiest years of the 45rpm single – music that's so mad, so strange, it really defies description! All the cuts here are presented in conjunction with the long-running Fool's Paradise radio show on WFMU – a longtime champion of all things weird and wild – always reminding us that in the glory days of vinyl, there was so much stuff set to record that really defied any sort of description – sounds that usually were quite far from the charts as well! The music here maybe has bits of R&B, early rock, jazz, and exotica – but the end results are all pretty darn unique – and often handled with both a sense of humor, and a great ear for unusual studio tricks and gimmicks. Titles include "Chinese Rock & Roll" by the Flock Rocker, "Shawnee" by The Premiers, "Charlie & The Bank Job" by Al Katraz, "Umh Uh Baby" by Kind Sid, "Knock Her Down" by The Orbits, "The Last Meal" by Hurricane Harry, "500 Pound Canary" by Jules Blattner, "The Goatee's Got To Go" by Dick Summers, "Mad" by Bobby Borda Five, "Pulp Wood Charley" by Wee Willie & The Soulettes, and "Pal Mal Rock" by Arnie Ginsberg.

Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
Incredible sounds from the German Jazz Festival of 1964 – a wonderful meeting of modern talents from all over the European continent at the time – including some great work from behind the Iron Curtain too! The album features a few tracks each by a number of different groups – all of them excellent, and the sorts of players who are really under-represented in terms of available recordings – which makes this selection of tracks completely essential! The set begins with "Sopranitis" and "Birmingham Post" – played by a very cool combo with Heinz Sauer on tenor and soprano sax, Joki Freund on the same two instruments, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, and Gunther Kornberg on alto and baritone – a four-sax group that works with just bass and drums to give them a groove, with strong solos from all players. Next up is the fantastic Zagreb Jazz Quartet – with Bosko Petrovic on vibes – playing "In Walked Bud" and "Degressia" – plus a version of "Bluesette" with a guest appearance by Sven Asmussen. Tenor player Karl Drevo (Drewo) leads a quintet with trumpeter Maffy Falay and pianist Bora Rokovic – on a long reading of "Save Your Love For Me". The legendary quartet of saxophonist Klaus Doldinger is next – his great group with Ingfried Hoffmann on Hammond, Peter Trunk on bass, and Klaus Weiss on drums – with guest work by Rolf Kuhn on tenor and Inge Brandenberg on vocals – on the titles "Waltz Of The Jive Cats", "What's The Matter Daddy", and "Groovin In Berlin". Last up is one of our favorite groups of the time – the quintet of pianist Michael Naura, which also features Wolfgang Schluter on vibes and Peter Reinke on alto – on "Rainy Clouds" and "Rhythm A Ning".

Be! (Germany), 1967/1968. New Copy 6CD ... $99.99 107.99
Fantastic work from two different years of this important German Jazz Festival – material that provides a great live complement to some of the best studio jazz recordings of the late 60s European scene – such as those coming from the MPS label, and some of the record companies in Paris and London! The vibe here is mostly straight, but there are plenty of currents of modern, and maybe just a bit of free – and the set's especially great in illustrating the sort of unique groupings and musical moments that can make the jazz festival scene so rewarding! Material from 1967 includes three long tracks by the group of saxophonist Klaus Doldinger with organist Ingfried Hoffmann; a long performance from a big band led by Kurt Edelhagen, with work from trumpeters Shake Keane and Jimmy Deuchar, tenorists Wilton Gaynair and Karl Drewo, and altoist Derek Humble; four tracks by a quartet led by trumpeter Dusko Goykovich, with Bent Jaedig on tenor; two long improvisations from a group that features Manfred Schoof on trumpet, Gerd Dudek on tenor, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, and Jaki Liebezeit on drums; one track by a quartet with Ted Curson on trumpet and Nick Bridnola on soprano sax; four long cuts by the Clarke Boland Sextet, with Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone, Ake Persson on trombone, and Idrees Sulieman on trumpet; a sweet large group led by organist Ingfried Hoffmann, and a few other hip cuts too. 1968 features work by a sextet led by bassist Peter Trunk, with Shake Keane on flugelhorn, Jiggs Whigham on trombone, and Rob Pronk on piano; four tracks by the Clarke Boland Big Band, with Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone; two cuts by the twin tenor group of Hank Mobley and Johnny Griffin; a vocal performance by Jon Hendricks with a Clarke Boland group with Johnny Griffin in the lead; twin trombones from the Slide Hampton and Ake Persson Quintet; hip work from the trio of pianist George Gruntz, bassist Henri Texier, and drummer Daniel Humair; a number of tight tracks from the Maynard Ferguson big band, with Pete King on tenor; and two shorter trio tracks from Joachim Kuhn. Like other Be Music titles, the presentation is great – a really well-done box, and big booklet of notes and images. CD

Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
Mad music that you might never have heard otherwise – the fantastic fifth installment in this excellent series inspired by The Cramps – and maybe the deepest-digging so far! There's no holds barred here – both in the source of the material, and the style – and the main criteria just seems to be finding tracks that are as way-out and wild as possible – almost all of which are pulled from the 45rpm underground of the late 50s and early 60s! The "jukebox" in the title is well-placed – as most of these cuts are mad rompers that would really liven up a nightclub – but we also can't imagine there ever being any jukebox as hip as this one, to bring all these fantastic singles together. Titles include "Icky Poo" by The Nomads, "Pimples & Braces" by Ric Gary, "Fling" by The Phaetons, "Laffin Beatnik" by Johnny Beeman, "Bop Crazy Baby" by Vern Pullens, "Boom Stix" by Curley & The Jades, "Cannibal Stew" by Jerry & Mel, "Talk About A Party" by Lee Braun, "Mad Gass" by The Royal Teens, "Mama's Place" by Bing Day, "Mo Taters" by The Earthworms, "I'm The Wolfman" by Round Robin, "A Logger's Wife" by Buzz Martin, and "Strollie Bun" by The Blonde Bomber.

Genius early work from reedman Marion Brown – an album that was originally only issued overseas, where it was recorded – as part of that legacy that's always had Brown getting a lot more attention in Europe than back at home! Yet the record's a monster that stands equally with Marion's seminal sides for Impulse and ESP – and is maybe even bolder than both of them, as Brown blows alto in a loose trio – with Maarten Van Altena on bass and Han Bennink on drums – in a mode that definitely puts the "free" in free jazz – recorded before the start of both FMP and BYG! Yet there's also that sensitive, soulful quality that makes Brown so great – that element in the music that's always had recordings like these as key pointers forwards to the loft jazz years on the NYC scene – a brilliant blend of freedom and inner spirit – on titles that include "Sound Structure", "QBIC", "Porto Novo", and "Similar Limits".

Mindblowing work from the Dutch jazz scene of the late 60s – duets between drummer Han Bennink and reedman Willem Breuker – delivered with an intensity that matches or beats anything the German, American, or British scenes had to offer! The sound is completely free, and often has an early FMP-like frenzy – with Breuker on soprano, alto, tenor, bass clarinet, and e-flat clarinet – and Bennink not just on drums, but also on a range of other percussion instruments, blocks, gongs, cymbals, sticks, and a heck of a lot of other implements too! Both musicians can evoke tuneful moments when they want, and move into fuller noise at others – shifting back and forth with the sensitivity we've always loved in Bennink's work, and displaying an energy we don't always hear on later records from Breuker. Titles include "Gamut", "Singing The Impalpable Blues", and "Music For John Tchicai". Amazing 2CD version – also features six more improvisations recorded at Jazzclub Podium in Essen Germany in 1968!

The approach here is a bit like some of the best German sci fi soundtrack work by Peter Thomas and Ingfried Hoffmann at the end of the 60s – but also has some of the playful electronics of the German new wave from later years, particularly the work of Der Plan – but there's also something really special to the set, which is both experimental and groovy at the same time – recorded in relatively obscurity for Polish Radio in the early 70s, and finally getting proper release! Instrumentation includes this wonderful blend of Arp Odyssey and Yamaha Organ – instruments used alongside more familiar bass and drums, which are focused enough to create the right sort of rhythms for most tracks – never making for overdone groovers or too-fast tunes, with a pace that's maybe in the best Perrey-Kingsley mode. Titles include "Gin Mill On Crater", "Hello Venus", "Space Jam", "Electro Cats", "War Of Giants", "Sunbird Waltz", "Galactic Bridge", and "Astro Clock". CD features two bonus tracks too! CD

During the second half of the 90s, the Chicago avant scene really exploded with some great younger players – and also drew a lot of guests from other global scenes too – creating a lively cross-breeding of sounds, styles, and ideas – all of which are represented strongly by this group! The lineup features Jim Baker on piano, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Axel Dorner on trumpet, Dave Rempis on alto and tenor, Kent Kessler on bass, Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello, and both Paul Lytton and Tim Mulvenna play drums – which makes for a super heavy sense of energy throughout.

This amazing series just gets better and better! Sure, it's nearly 10 years since Polygram Germany issued the first batch of tasty grooves selected by the gang at Mojo Club in Hamburg, but that bunch has been evolving their tastes drastically over the past decade, moving from a straight jazz funk groove into the realm of obscure 60s easy funk tracks, Brazilian beat-heavy numbers, and obscure electric 70s European fusion – and there's no better indication of that evolution than the massively great tracks on this volume! The set's a darn cool batch of groovers that jumps from genre to genre effortlessly – always exciting, and always a lot fresher than your usual funky compilation. Titles include "Party Music" by Francis Lai, "Never Felt So Free" by Free Orbit, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Nofretete's Headache" by Eric Thoner, "Who Got the Number" by Pigmeat Markham, "Go Go Sitar" by Kahuna Kawentzmann, "Triangulo Dos Biquinis" by Erasmo Carlos, "Para Lennon e McCartney" by Zimbo Trio, "Midnight Bossa Nova" by Ingfried Hoffmann, "Kaloule Woman" by Malinga Five, "Got Some" by Manolo, "Bite You" by Bo Diddley, and "Calamaty Lul" by Ivan Julien Big Band.

✨✧ Dining RoomsNumero Deux ... CD
Guidance, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic set from one of the best groups of the downtempo generation – and one of the few whose work we still turn to all these years later! The Dining Rooms move in the same space as early Kruder & Dorfmeister or Mo Wax, but also bring in some jazzier elements at times too – just the smallest kernels of the sorts of sounds that would later land them on Schema Records – but used in really nice ways, to give their music a lot more depth than most of their contemporaries. Titles include "Chorus Of Flames", "Sei Tu", "Pure & Easy", "Invocation", "Cosi Ti Amo", "Luzy", "Maria", and "False Start". CD

✨✧ Joe TexI've Got To Do A Little Bit Better ... LP
Dial/Atlantic, 1966. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
We couldn't think up a better title to describe the way that Joe Tex approached soul music in the 60s – giving 110% to his music, working like a dog to climb the ranks that were already filled with other budding soul stars! This album's a perfect example of Joe at his best – nearly all original tunes recorded in close collaboration with producer Buddy Killen, whose unique talents really brought out the best in Joe's honest apporach to soul music. The album includes the studio version of the classic groover "Papa Was Too", and loads of other classics like "SYSLJFM (The Letter Song)", "I've Got To Do A Little Bit Better", "Half A Mind", "I Believe I'm Gonna Make It", "Watch The One (That Brings The Bad News)', and "A Woman Sees A Hard Time (When Her Man Is Gone)".
