Marek Alaszewski/Klanlaszewski/KlanChmura Nad Miastem – 1972 to 1994 Lost & Found Recordings ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. Used ... $8.99
A string of obscure work from Polish singer/songwriter Marek Alaszewski – best known for his contributions to the legendary hard rock group Klan – but heard here in a variety of different settings! Some of the music here feels like Klan, but other tracks are maybe more personal too – still with some hard rock elements in the mix, but maybe more towards the ballad style – although with styles that change a bit over the scope of the many years in the set – and as with other titles on the Gad label, there's notes in both English and Polish – which really helps you get a handle on the interesting and obscure music. Titles include "Chmura Nad Miastem", "Tryptk", "Should Be", "Shut Up", "Ostatnie Przeswity Pamiecei", and "Kawiarz". CD

Krzystof DudaAltus ... CD
GAD (Poland), Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
Very cool sound library work from the Polish scene of the 80s – played on a host fo great keyboards, and in a highly electronic way that rivals some of the best soundtrack material of the time! Krzystof Duda may not be as well known as American or European keyboard giants of the period, but he's got a way with his keys that creates a lot of the same dark textures and spooky moments of the 80s horror generation – particularly those great records that sprung up in the wake of John Carpenter's early material, and were filled with pulsating passages. Duda plays Arp, Korg, moog, and lots more here – on titles that include "Baza Alfa", "Altus", "Blue Man", "Pasterka Na Wzgorzu", "Tascam", "Dyfrakcja", and "Analiza Widma". CD

Krzysztof DudaKrzysztof Duda Live ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1984/1985. New Copy ... $9.99
Very cool sounds from Polish keyboardist Krzystof Duda – two long live tracks recorded in the 80s, but with this freewheeling spirit and sense of space that recalls 70s genius by better-known talents like Klaus Schulze or Jean-Michel Jarre! Duda plays a Moog Prodigy, which is especially nice – and has all these loopy lines that are completely wonderful – and also uses a Korg Polysix, Arp string ensemble, and a few other keyboards – but all with a sense of warmth that's very different than some of the leaner, tinnier 80s modes that you might have heard from other parts of the globe at the time. Titles include "Vivi Olim Homo" and "Radosna Medytacja" – both of which run well over 30 minutes in length! CD

Piotr FigielGdzies Kiedys (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet funky keyboards from Piotr Figie – a Polish jazz musician who you might know from earlier Hammond records – working here in a late 70s mix of electric funk and club! There's a bit of vocals in the music at times – not so much a lead singer, so much as the kind of vocalizations that might be used alongside some keys – the way that Johnny Hammond or Jimmy Smith had some vocals on some of their bigger arrangements in the mid 70s. Other tracks are nice and lean, though – and the range of keyboards really changes, so that there's even some unexpected moogy moments next to more familiar electric piano lines. Titles include "Agent 008", "Gdzies Kiedys", "Refleksja", "Nokaut", "Czas Nocy", and "Powrocisz Tu". CD also features 8 more very cool bonus tracks – instrumentals from an unused 1977 film score, served up with lots of sweet moog and Rhodes moments! CD

Halina Frackowiak with SBBGeira ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
There's a really cool meeting of talents going on here – lead vocals from Polish singer Halina Frackowiak, and backings by prog power trio SBB – who change up their groove in some nice ways for the record! We mostly know SBB for their long-form, fusion-styled jams – but here, they compact that energy into shorter, tighter songs that often have a funky rock style that draws equally from the vocals in the lead, and from the keyboards of Jozef Skrzek! Titles include "Piesn Geiry", "Snij Tylko Szczescie", "Jestes Spoznionym Deszczem", "W Powszednie Dni", and "Brzegi Lagodne". CD

Wojciecha GogolewskiegoSkok Nr 8 ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Polish keyboardist Wojciecha Gogolewskiego isn't exactly a household name – but he might get plenty of play around your house if you're a fan of Fender Rhodes! This set of unissued tracks from the 70s is completely wonderful, and done in a hard-jamming fusion style – the leader's keys on top of the heavy rhythms, really shaping the sound in these bold, blocky ways – while reedman Mieczyslaw Wolny brings in a more lyrical, colorful vibe on flute – blending with the electric piano in a style that takes us back to CTI Records in the earlier part of the decade! Tracks are long and open, perfect for the slow-building sensibility of Wolny – who almost reminds us of Hubert Laws in his more spacious recordings – and titles include "Ballada Dla G", "Poranna Kolysanka", "Lan", "Grzyb Mun", and the 17 minute "Suite For M".

Mikolaj HertelDzwieki Dalekiego Swiata (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
80s keyboards sparkle and glisten wonderfully here – a mix of Roland, Yamaha, and Korg keyboards – all played by Mikolaj Hertel in a few very cool suites of instrumental tunes! The music is maybe an extension of 70s electronic sound library modes, but also colored with some of the tunefulness that you'd find in more conventional 80s electronic sounds in pop, soul, and soundtracks – gentle lyricism that's never too overdone or commercial, but which keeps things plenty tuneful throughout, and makes the album at lot more interesting than some more new age-styled keyboard sessions of the time. The album features three longer thematic suites – "Zaczarowane Ogrody", "Koekcja Lalki Barbie", and "Dzwieki Dalekiego Swiata" – divided into shorter tunes – and the set also features 5 more bonus tracks too.

Mikolaj HertelSpleen ... CD
GAD (Poland), 2002. New Copy ... $9.99
Mikolaj Hertel may not be a household name, but he certainly knows how to create some great electronic sounds when he wants to – and even on an album as late as this, he comes across with a sound to rival the spacey electronic masters of the European scene of the 70s! The music is spare and open – tuneful, but in a quietly progressing sort of way – and always has the warmth of more analogue electronics, used at a level that rivals some of the bigger name French electronicists of the 70s, or maybe some of the German Sky Records scene, but less ambient overall. Titles include "Atlantydo", "Twarze Melancholii", "Jak To Wyrazic", "Smutek Pamieci", and "Spleen", in three parts. CD

Jazzovy Orchestr Cechoslovenskeho RozhlasuJazz Ze Studia A (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Panton/GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
Searing sounds from one of the coolest ensembles working on the Czech scene of the 70s – a group who mix big band modes with sweet electric touches – in a style that's like some of the hipper acts on the MPS label at the time! The approach is very much like a Clark Boland Big Band sound, but with more keyboards – as the group features lots of Fender Rhodes from Karel Ruzicka, plus some electric guitar and bass – alongside strong solos from Laco Deczi and Vaclav Tyfa on trumpets, Svatopluk Kosvanec on trombone, Petr Kral on tenor and soprano sax, and Frantisek Kryka on baritone! The sound is sometimes a bit funky, but mostly more concerned with the flowing colors and tones of the group – a beautiful mix that really comes through strongly, on titles that include "Stare Koreni", "Mhlavo Destivo", "Vychod Slunce", "Tuturilla", and "Ogarske Hry". CD features three unreleased bonus tracks – "Chutovka", "Zlato Pro Tenistu", and "Rytmus Velkomesta". CD

KlanMrowisko (The Hive) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Hip work from the Polish scene at the start of the 70s – a Hammond-heavy combo with a fair bit of jazz in their grooves – almost a more progressive take on the Brit beat group sound of the 60s, but without all of the progressive modes that other Euro groups were moving into! There's a great blend of basslines, percussion, and organ in the group's approach – and although there's a number of tracks with vocals, there's also others where the instrumentation really dominates, and those are especially appealing to us. Production is cool too – often echoey and effect-heavy – and titles include "A Dream", "Temptation", "The Nerves Of Cities", "Thoughts", "The Hive", and "The Starveling's Dance". CD features bonus tracks from a Pronit EP – "Gdzie Jest Czlowiek", "Z Bryztwa Na Poziomki", "Automaty", and "Nie Sadzcie Rajskich Jabloni". CD

Andrzej KorzynskiAkademia Pana Kleksa ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1983. New Copy ... $9.99
A weird and wonderful lost soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – done for a movie that was essentially a children's story, but with a great array of unusual sounds and very cool 80s keyboards! The music is very much in par with some of Korzynski's other classics – and maybe has an even more eerie sort of vibe, given the mix of sweetness and dark that comes across – as some themes feel a bit redemptive, but others have a very moody sort of approach! The whole thing almost reminds us of an 80s variation of the same territory as the Peau D'Ane soundtrack by Michel Legrand – and the music also features some straighter electric piano, guitar, and orchestrations alongside a Yamaha keyboard. Titles include "Laser Golaraza", "Wilki Zdobywaja Zamek", "Inwazja Wilkolakow", "Zaklad Golarza Filipa", "Lustro", and "Leckcja Pryzrody". First time on CD – with bonus tracks, and some detailed notes on the unusual production of the film! CD

Andrzej KorzynskiMowa Ptakow (plus Lektury Uzupelniajce & Kosmos) ... CD
GAD (Poland), 2019. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A more recent soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – put together for a film by the son of his old partner, director Andrzej Zulawski – and in a way that continues their cinematic legacy from previous years! The roots of the music like in older Korzynski recordings, but the songs are transformed a fair bit – often in ways that are very electronic and beat-heavy – with a sci-fi dance sort of vibe, and these tuneful passages that are a bit of a contrast to some of the composer's earlier work. Yet as always with Korzynski, nothing is ever too mainstream or commercial – and in a way, these shorter songs almost seem to answer a more popular idiom with a more personal vision. Titles include "Rower", "Dziewczyna Zla", "Smyzcki", "Opetanie Drugie", "Temat Etniczny II", and "Komputer". CD2 features 12 more bonus tracks – from a few decades of cinematic collaborations between Korzynski and Zulawski – then conclosed with 8 more tracks from the 2015 soundtrack to the film Kosmos. CD

Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
A very cool little record from 70s Poland – a set that's funky rock, but heavy on moog – using the keyboard as a really great way to open up the group's sound in a very groovy way! There's vocals on most cuts, but they're recorded with a nice sense of compression – fusing them tightly to the heavy drums, riffing guitar, and mighty sweet keyboards – which also include some great organ lines – all in a blend that kind of echoes mainstream pop of the period, but through this strange lens – almost as if these guys were hearing echoes of AM Radio from the other side of Europe, then crafting catchy, offbeat tunes of their own with Polish lyrics. Titles include "Nasze Kung Fu", "Zaduma", "Zabita Woda", "Deszczowy Rok", "Radosc Snow", and "Tam Gdzie Ty". Also includes the bonus track "Biala Sowa Biala Dama Bialy Kruk". CD

MechZjednoczone Sily Natury ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
Rare radio recordings from this Polish hard rock combo at the start of the 80s – a group who have the kind of American classic rock vibe you'd expect from their look on the cover! A decade before, and Mech might have been been prog – but here, they play melodic material with a strong focus on deft guitar work, with the addition of keyboards that were starting to take over a bit with groups of the generation – a definite 80s sound, but in a way that's still quite complex and never that commercial. There's lyrics on most tunes – but, maybe like Rush, these guys are first content to fall into their instrumental explorations, then introduce some words to the songs. CD features two tracks from a Tonpress single, plus unreleased radio and live tracks – with titles that include "Atlantis Suite", "Marsz", "Antidotum", "Ogrod Snow", and "Dialog Z Nizszych Sfer". CD

Jerzy MilianCirculations 1966 to 1969 – Belgian Scores/Beyond Third Stream ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Brilliant work from Polish jazz legend Jerzy Milian – all rare sides recorded in Brussels during the late 60s – and very different than some of his other material on record at the time! Much of the work here was done with the larger BRT Jazz Orchestra – an excellent large ensemble who work through Milian's music with the mixture of ensemble dexterity and individual voices that you'd find in some of Oliver Nelson's most sophisticated work of the time – a side of Jerzy's talents that we've never fully heard realized this strongly, and which comes as quite a surprise! The recording quality on all tracks is great, and almost all numbers are quite long – past the ten minute mark, and full of complex ideas and rich colors, while still also managing to swing. Titles include "Pieces For Friend", "Two E & One F", "Polish Folk Suite", "Instrumental Dialogues", and "Circulations". CD

Jerzy MilianNeuroimpressions – 1970 to 1973 ... CD
GAD (Poland), Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
Three different slices of music from Polish vibes legend Jerzy Milian – all performances that show the musician at the farthest reaches of his style! The first three tracks are all pretty out-there – recorded in Budapest with a very hip group that features Rudolf Tomsits on trumpet and Gyorgy Vukan on both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes – as part of a quintet that really stretches out on long, open, exploratory interpretations of the Milian titles "Orientally", "Plasma", and "Neurasthenia". The next three tracks are similar, but have a different vibe – almost more spiritual in expression, and recorded in Berlin with a very cool group that includes Ernst Ludwig Petrowsky on soprano sax and flute, Heinz Becker on trumpet, Klaus Koch on bass, and Willibald Winkler on drums. The titles are all variations on the first three tunes – "Orientally", "Plasmoditally", and "Neurosis" – but handled in ways that are sometimes more modal and exotic than strictly avant. The last three tracks feature a similar German group, but without Becker on trumpet – and these cuts may well be the most spiritual in the set – a very different side of Milian's talents, and a beautiful one too! Titles include "Ballade", "Program", and "Polly's Song". CD

GAD (Poland), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Jerzy Milian is a hell of a jazzman – and we really love his work on vibes on older albums of Polish jazz – but here, he's working as a top-flight arranger – creating some totally great moments of 70s funk, all matching the best sound library styles on the other side of the iron curtain! Most of these numbers have a romping, soulful sort of quality – piano and bass really chunking it up on the rhythms – while Jerzy allows other elements to get all free and groovy over the top – including a cool wordless chorus, with qualities that take us back to late 60s Italian soundtracks, or some of the groovier choral moments on Saba/MPS! Wonderful throughout – and titles include "Hej Pomozcie Ludzie", "Phyllis", "Bocki", "Bossa Nova Piknik", "Wybacz Mi Barry", "Bieg Po Zdrowie", "Baron Cyganski", and "Wpol Do Szostej".

Jerzy MilianPretekst (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
Some of the grooviest work we've ever heard from Jerzy Milian – a legendary Polish jazz artist who normally plays vibes in the lead – but who works here as the head of a larger ensemble that also includes a mix of horns and singers! The approach is very cool – large charts that have a current of funk at the core and lots of jazzy elements over the top – almost like some of the MPS projects of the early 70s, or even a bit like the more soul-styled work of Milian's Polish contemporaries, The Novi Singers! That aspect of the music really comes into play when the mixed male/female vocal group sings wordlessly over the top of the tunes – alongside instrumentation that includes Jerzy's vibes, plus alto, tenor, flute, and other reed touches that really bring some warm currents to the music. The vibe is maybe more 1969/1970 than you'd guess from the date – and the whole thing is great all the way through. Titles include "Dobranocka", "CMA", "Sprzedaj Mnie Wiatrowi", "Czwarte Podejscie", and "Fereton". CD features 4 bonus tracks too! CD

Panton/GAD (Poland), 1979. Used ... $1.99
Disco grooves from 70s Poland – music that might seem like a joke at first glance, but which comes off quite nicely – thanks to lots of keyboard work on moog, Hammond, Arp, and Fender Rhodes! The keyboards are really the star of the set – even though there's vocals from keyboardist Peter Orm on many cuts – but the approach is relatively stripped-down and lean, less American disco than that moment when some of the European groups who might have once been prog shortened their songs, upped the rhythms, and allowed for lots of nice keyboard elements – ala the Italian groups in the Cosmic scene! Peter's partner in the group is Pavel Orm, who handles guitars and bass – and titles include "Magic Fly", "Chime Course", "Further & More", "Chess King", "Weekend", "Winding Off The Tape", "Boomerang", and "It's Only Moon Of Know Of Us". CD features bonus tracks – single versions of "Boomerang", "Fany & Any", "Carousel", and "Magic Fly". CD

Polish Jazz QuartetPolish Jazz Quartet Meets Studio M-2 ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A lost chapter in 60s modern European jazz – recordings made by a very hip quartet, working amidst a larger setting created by Polish Radio! The core group features two key names – pianist Wojciech Karolak and saxophonist Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – both of whom recorded some excellent albums in the 60s, with work that stands as part of the amazing statement of modern jazz that made Poland one of the hippest global scenes at the time! The work here is similar to those records in spirit – particularly some of Wroblewski's more inventive experiments in arranging – and the efforts by the core quartet are expanded by larger groups of musicians on each track – almost with a vibe that's like the Clarke Boland Big Band style of balancing out a tight core with freewheeling energy from key players. Wroblewski is wonderful – especially on tenor, although he plays some great flute too – and none of these tracks were ever issued commercially at the time. Titles include "Ostinati The Portuguese", "Don't Cry", "Sparks", "Outsideria", "Antiselector", "Lazy Waltz", and "Bats". CD

Soaring sounds from SBB – an all-instrumental session for Polish Radio, and one that really shows off the more fusion-heavy side of their music! All tracks are nice and long – and there's more of a power trio formation in the group – really freewheeling guitar lines that are certainly inspired by the roots of hard rock, but which get much more open, solo-based expression here – anext to some super-heavy bass and drums! There's a bit of keyboards, too – although used in ways that echo the guitar more than usual for the group – maybe prefacing the way that Geddy Lee's keys might challenge the guitar of Alex Lifeson in years to come. All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Penia", "Dyskoteka", "Fos", and "Xeni". LP, Vinyl record album

We say "mostly", because keyboardist Jozef Skrzek uses some occasional mouth organ next to his usual keyboards – giving some moments a bit of "voice", even though the overall vibe is instrumental fusion of the tightest, sharpest variety! Tracks are shorter than on some of the longer-jamming SBB records, but make up for that with some funkier currents too – and titles include "Septet Elektronowy", "Motyw Szkarlatny", "Sekunda", "Podejscie", and "Ogniste Kolo".

The album features two long tracks that pull together material recorded live between 2003 and 2009 – but the sound is much more 70s overall, given the analogue keyboard at the core – which really has this strong sense of warmth, even when things are way out – as they often are, given the longform, journey-style approach to the music! A great one if you love moogy keyboards – with the titles "South To North" and "East To West". CD

Great funky fusion from the Polish scene of the 70s – served up by a group who only recorded briefly, but who created some great tracks in the process! These guys aren't in the rock fusion mode – although they seem to have roots in that scene – as there's a warmth here that gets beyond some of the too-jamming fusion work of the period, and which instead has a quality that links Spisek to some of the more R&B-influenced material of the time – particularly some of the sounds coming from artists like Herbie Hancock, who they give a nod to on the first track on the set – and there's also some cop show-like soundtrack elements to the grooves. There are vocals on three tracks in Polish – but most of the focus is on the instrumentation, which includes keyboards, tenor, trombone, and trumpet.

Hard-swinging trad jazz from the Polish scene of the postwar years – in a style that was as revolutionary to the Soviet-controlled culture as its later modern jazz and fusion moments! The group here is led by pianist Zygmunt Wichary, and works with a frenzied spirit that's a lot more intense than most American trad recorded during the same period – maybe this urgency to get the message across, or just the kind of outside presence that graced some of the American jazz world in its early years. The group also features Piotr Kott on cornet, Bruno Buczek on trombone, Bronislaw Gesikowski on guitar, and Miroslaw Wojcik on clarinet – and there's also a female singer on a few tracks too.

GAD (Poland), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
A very cool Polish singer from the 70s – but one who works in styles we'd be much more likely to associate with male vocalists from America in the previous decade! Part of the style might have to do with the backings – which are superbly handled by jazzman Jerzy Milian, who directs the PRiTV orchestra with all these unusual tonal colors and shadings – almost with the sorts of sophistication that someone like Jack Jones or Vic Damone might have been using at the end of the 60s, yet still graced with plenty of Jerzy's own cool touches too – including some of his work on vibes! Titles include "Basia Basia Basia", "Ballad O Jasiu I Malgosi", "Ctery Sciany", "A Gdyby Tak Robinsonem", "Kiedy O Mnie Zapomnisz", and "Dziekczynienie". CD

✨✧ KlanSenne Wedrowki ... LP
GAD (Poland), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Vintage funk from Poland – played by a combo who are kind of rockish at the core, but also have a lot of jazzy leanings overall! The work here is all instrumental – and grooves grow right up from the bottom, driven by some heavy drums that are totally great, and often given these basslines that are rolling, yet a bit brooding too – with bluesy undercurrents that are sometimes echoed by the group's excellent Hammond as well! Other instrumentation includes a guitar – both acoustic and electric – piano, and even a bit of kazoo – and the whole thing's great – on a par if not better with any British groups of this nature from the time, and not marred at all by overdone vocals. Titles include "Szkola", "Sen", "Safari", "Epidemia Euforii", "Taniec Glodnego", and "Automaty". LP, Vinyl record album

GAD (Poland), 1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic electronic score from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – one that's very much in the modes you might expect from its mid-80s date, but with a vibe that's very different than American and Italian soundtracks of the time! Korzynski uses plenty of keyboards and a fair bit of beats – but the songs are a mix of tuneful, lyric-based numbers and more whimsical instrumentals – almost all of which are appearing here for the first time ever, as the original 80s release of music from Tulipan only saw the vocal songs issued to the public! As you might expect, the instrumentals are a lot more interesting – and many have great keyboards in the lead, with that always-offbeat quality we always love in Korzynski's music. Titles include "Kuter", "Colce Vita", "Mieszkanie Niny", "Brat", "Zaplecze", "Sweet Sweet Tulipan", "Korytarz Poci Gu", and "Karin". CD

Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest albums ever from this incredible Polish vocal group – and that's saying a lot, because all of their albums are pretty darn hip! This set has the Novi Singers working in a freer, more open-ended mode than on some of their earlier records – hitting some territory that verges on the Karin Krog modes of the time, with lots of nice spacey touches, and going for some other numbers that have a funkier big band sort of approach – even cooler and groovier than the group's previous albums, including their classic set for MPS! Instrumentation brings in some sweet Fender Rhodes at times – with a fusion undercurrent that's subdued, and never gets in the way of the incredible harmonies – and titles include "Bongolo", "On The Road", "Five Four Three", "What Thing Is Love", "Yellow Blue & White", "Off Season", and "Dotyk". CD has great sound, notes, and four bonus tracks too – "Feel Kind Of Low", "Be My King", "Basen" and "Klown I Skrzypce". CD

GAD (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer look at the ultra-obscure world of Polish sound library recordings in the 60s and 70s – music that's even rarer than the small pressing albums from Western Europe at the time, and equally groovy as well! The track selection here is superb – handled by the Soul Service team who gave us the Polish Funk compilations many years back – and there's a great ear for tunes that have a very strong instrumental component, particularly on the jazzier side of the spectrum – as many of these titles could work equally well as modern jazz numbers from the Polish scene, and a few were even recorded by some of that nation's leading jazz musicians. A few tracks get more electric and funkier, a few others a bit trippy – and titles include "Halo Wenus" by Zezpol Mateusza Swiecickiego, "Wysoki Poziom Wody" by High Water Mark, "Trzecia Katarakta" by Czterech, "Rahat Lukum" by Kwintet Boguslawa Rudzinskiego, "Zlosnica" by Polish Jazz Quartet, "Niebo Z Blach Faldowanej" by Grupa Organowa Krzsytofa Sadowskiego, and "Fortepian Na Jednej Nodze" by SBB.

GAD (Poland), 1971/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith.

Totally great sound library material from the Polish radio scene of the late 70s and early 80s – music that never made it to our side of the Iron Curtain at the time, but which totally shows the same growing love for keyboards and electronics you'd find at the KPM or DeWolfe studios too! The cuts here are wonderful – really cool killers that still hang onto a bit of the sound library funk of the previous generation, and some of the older European soundtrack modes too – but which deliver the goods with snakey keyboard lines and loads of cool moogy bits that still retain some analogue elements, mixed with a growing love of digital styles too. The package comes with a sweet book of notes in English – and titles include "Struny" by Adrezj Korzynski, "Drzewo Z Toledo" by Omni, "Blue Water 1" by Jim Harbourg, "Na Czarno" by SBB, "Breezy Shore" by Mladen Franko, "Szczeliwy Pazdziernik" by Arp Life, "Mysterious Forest" by Ted Atking & Alain Feanch, "Tzeci Test" by Wladyzslaw Komendarek, "Surfing Romance" by Klaus Weiss, and "Robotory 1" by John Fiddy & Band.

A sublime set from this hip Polish ensemble – a group who got their start in funky fusion, but who really stretch out here in a more sophisticated space too – mixing some of their electric elements with these really beautiful horn passages – arranged at a level that's full of color and life! The approach is a bit like some of the best MPS big bands of the 70s – with some keyboards and electric guitar in the mix, driving the rhythms along – while the skilled lineup of trumpets, trombone, and tenor sax carve out these soulful lines over the top – all at a level that's extremely fresh, very thoughtful, and which almost beats most American jazz of this type from the time! The style is more mid 70s than you'd guess from the date – and the album's a great lost treasure from the overlooked Polish scene. Titles include "Wet Za Wet", "Sam Na Manhattanie", "Switaniec", "Hispanzkie Izy", and "Morskie Slonce". CD features three bonus tracks – "Gra Milosna", "Fikolek", and "Tanczaca Anaconda". CD

Soaring disco grooves from behind the Iron Curtain – proof that the sound of Studio 54 was touching all corners of the globe in the 70s! The disco here isn't really the familiar sort, though – as the music was recorded by a studio project – a bit like sound library funk from Italy and France, with a core funk instrumental approach at the heart of the tracks – sped up with bits of strings, fast percussion, and occasional chorus vocals! The sound is almost a bit like some of the cool German easy material of the period – particularly that of their own sound library world – almost an echo of popular Euro disco styles, but never with a need to hit the charts – and usually instrumental. CD Features all the material from two albums issued by Polskie Nagrania – Swiatla Dyskoteki and Discoland – and titles include "Mr Verdi", "Bongo Boy", "Argentina", "Boogie Moogie", "Safari", "Oczy Czarne", "Discoland", "Zeppelin", "Aviator", "Monsun", and "Alfred Wsrod Ptakow".

A totally groovy little group from late 60s Poland – one who work here in a "beat mass" of their own creation – a totally rocking album that seeks to remake the Catholic mass in a flurry of fast drums, riffing guitars, and mod keyboards! The territory is nothing new – the Electric Prunes, David Axelrod, Mind Garage, and other acts tried the same thing over in the US – but this one's maybe a bit different, as it's coming more from a beat group sound – so has less of the too-heady energy of some of the rest, and instead explodes with a vibe that's more mod 60s London than you might be expecting! The organ gets in plenty of great moments, and the drums keep things moving strongly – on titles that include "Kyrie", "Gloria", "Graduale", "Credo", "Agnus Dei", "Sanctus", "Communio", and "Introitus" – plus Pastoralki selections "Historia O Boznymn Narodzeniu", "Przjaciele Moi", and "Chwalcie Imie Pana".

Killer Hammond from Polish player Piotr Figiel – a player with a really wonderful sort of groove! The album's got a vibe that's halfway between the Hammond antics of Alan Hawkshaw and the freer lines of American jazzmen like Jimmy Smith or Charles Earland – augmented by other cool production touches at points, which gives the record a very groovy late 60s sort of Euro feel! The vocal group Bemibek sing these cool wordless vocals on the tune "Bit Of Spring Bit Of Summer" – and guitarist Dariusz Kozakiewicz adds a nice degree of fuzz to a few other tunes too – tripping out nicely with Piotr's very fluid lines on the Hammond! There's a bit of strings on a few numbers, bringing in a nice cinematic feel – and titles include "Prelude In E Minor", based on the same Chopin changes as Serge Gainsbourg's "Jane B" – plus "Never On Tuesday", "Breakfast At Midnight", "Away I'll Go", "Absence", and "Piece Of Space".

Franko's less well-known than some of his bigger European contemporaries, but has a similarly deft hand with a groove in this setting – an ability to focus quickly on a key rhythm part and hip instrumental twist, with an especially strong approach to keyboards – which range from Rhodes-y groovy to spacey moogy! Mladen played all the instruments himself, but the overall feel is more in a classic sound library studio mode – and although both records were issued in 1980, they have a sound that's much more mid 70s overall. Titles include "Venus & Aquarius", "Back From Wonderland", "Sound Safari", "Wind In Your Hair", "Midnight Party", "Yellow Baloon", "Melancholy Girl", "Lazy Daisy", "Leading Star", and "Clown Town".

A really beautiful soundtrack from Polish composer Wojciech Gluch – a bit hard to describe in easy words, as the whole thing's got a subtle emotional power that needs to be heard to be fully understood! The score is for a film set in the early part of the 20th Century, and definitely has some elements that echo that mode – yet Gluch also works with a very modern sense of color and tone, especially on the lead string instruments or the woodwinds – with this unabashedly upfront sentiment that grabs us the same way as the music of Astor Piazzolla, even though Gluch is working in different territory overall. Although maybe we should say "slightly different territory" – as there are a few tango themes on the record, mixed with a number of other modes – in a selection of 16 tracks from this obscure Polish TV series. Great Gad Records presentation – excellent sound, and notes in Polish and English. CD

The legendary debut album from Czech combo Jazz Q – a fusion classic that was so strong, it managed to break the group out from behind the Iron Curtain at the time! There's certainly a lot of rock-inspired instrumentation in the mix – including drums that are completely massive and very strong guitar solos – but there's also plenty of excellent Fender Rhodes from Martin Kratochvil, which ring out in beautiful currents, and really warm things up in the right sort of way! The album's one of those gems from a European jazz generation who were equally inspired by prog of the period and by soul jazz styles from the decade before – modes that come together beautifully on the long tracks "Trifid", "Kartago", "Pori 72", "Pozorovatelna", and "Klobosove Hody". This 2CD version adds in lots of bonus tracks, many unreleased – a 1971 studio session that features the tracks "Walter L", "Percenta Pro Hnizdovku", Pozorovatelna", and "Kartago" – plus radio tracks "Bylo Je A Bude" and "Epilog", and live versions of "Pori 72" and "Slez".

The set's a special live date recorded in Finland, with some tracks composed especially for the important festival in which they were presented – material that steps out with an even more complex, searching sort of vibe than some of Klan's other music – really showing some of the jazz inspiration these guys take, and then fuse into a more rockish sound on guitars, bass, and drums. The bassist often uses acoustic bass – which is quite unique, and has these wonderfully deep sounds – and although there are vocals on the tracks, the instrumental passages seem to dominate – on titles that include "Woman", "Good News", "Lonely In The Rain", "I'm Gonna", and "Last Glimpses Of Memory".

This album's still got a lot of jazz in the mix, but there's also a lot of the "sweet" mentioned in the title – mostly in these cool bossa currents and breezy elements, which recall more of the Italian soundtrack style of the time than some of Komeda's more famous film work with Roman Polanski. Instrumentation is often focused on an isolated piano line, or a bit of flute – but there's also some great bossa nova percussion, and some cool wordless vocals at times too – all with a mixture of warmth and complexity that really keeps things interesting throughout. Titles include "Rio", "Palac Copacabana", "Papieros", "Nowy Jork II", "Ciala Kuliste", "Prywatka", "Bar Wenecja", and "Final" – and the CD also features five more bonus tracks too! CD

The tracks are tuneful, and have a bit of a groove – but are also farther from pop keyboards, too – as they've got some darker corners and more offbeat instrumental flourishes amidst the more forward-moving beats and basslines at the bottom. There's almost an 80s horror scoring sound to the music overall – and the record certainly owes something to the influence of John Carpenter's soundtracks – on titles that include "Halo Komputer", "Sen Shoguna", "Dotyk Chmur", "Wiosenny Snieg", and "Cyklamenowe Wyspy".

The group might well be a precursor to later combos like The Bad Plus or Medeski Martin & Wood – and definitely serve as a bridge between the style of those famous groups, and earlier funky fusion styles of the 70s – as the trio here are never slick or overly tight, yet still manage to groove – but often with a nice sort of edge. Leader Wojciech Konikiewicz handles the keyboards, with Mietek Jurecki on bass guitar and Jacek Ratajczyk on drums – on long live tracks that include "Waiting For M", "Blues For Mr Leszek", "Klimacik", "Wroclow Love Stomp", "Triplet Ritual", and "All That Punk Funk Jazz".

In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than the actual dates might imply – with lots of elements that you'd hear in work from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, and some of their contemporaries – including lots of surprisingly strong jazz elements, mixed in with the fuller orchestrations, funky rhythms, and more electric moments! There's a bit of wordless vocalization at times – but most cuts here are instrumental, and plenty darn great throughout – a real discovery to our American ears – even though the show was one of the biggest Polish TV programs at the time.

Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski has given us some great soundtracks over the years – including a few reissued by the legendary Finders Keepers – and here, Korzynski's catalog is further expanded by a host of soundtrack material done for German director Celino Bleiweiss! The music here was recorded at a time when Andrzej had returned to Poland, but still held onto all the musical discoveries he'd made in southern Europe – especially a great way of mixing electric elements with darker acoustic sounds – often swirling things together, so that it was a bit hard to tell which was which! A number of these tracks have a spacious keyboard sound with an undercurrent of gentle funk – a bit like some of our favorite early 70s sounds from French soundtrack composer Francois De Roubaix – while others are spookier and darker, and maybe more in the territory of the films reissued by Finders Keepers. CD features 31 tracks in all – music from the films Absage An Viktoria, Die Schwarze Muhle, Ich Will Nach Hause, and Wilhelm Meisters Theatralische Sendung. CD

A rare set from a soundtrack artist who's finally getting his due – Poland's Andrzej Korzynski, whose work was mostly cut off from the rest of us during the years of Soviet dominance! Despite that remove, though, Korzynski works here in a keyboard mode that resonates with some of the coolest electric film scores in western Europe at the time, particularly the balance of spaciousness, melody, and darker currents that showed up in a number of French film scores of the early 80s – modes that were decidedly different than some of the US uses of keyboards during the period, partly because they weren't afraid to let things get a bit sweet from time to time. The sounds here are maybe not as crazy as some of Korzynski's other material, but still come across great in the spirit of the style – and titles include "Karty", "Victoria", "Milocsc Szu II", "Smierc", "Powrot", "Wielki Szu I", and "Motel Disco".

The group's a quartet, with lots of space for the guitar and keyboards to really do their thing – and the basslines and drums also do plenty to kick up the sound, but in ways that are sometimes a lot funkier than you might expect.

The keyboards are really the star of the set – even though there's vocals from keyboardist Peter Orm on many cuts – but the approach is relatively stripped-down and lean, less American disco than that moment when some of the European groups who might have once been prog shortened their songs, upped the rhythms, and allowed for lots of nice keyboard elements – ala the Italian groups in the Cosmic scene! Peter's partner in the group is Pavel Orm, who handles guitars and bass – and titles include "Magic Fly", "Chime Course", "Further & More", "Chess King", "Weekend", "Winding Off The Tape", "Boomerang", and "It's Only Moon Of Know Of Us".

The album's definitely what it says in the title – fairy tales in beat, done as a follow-up to Zahradnik's famous Jazz Goes To Beat album – with grooves that are as fluid and freaky as that album, but topped with English language vocals from Josef Pliva, who sings these short little stories based on fairy tales – but in a way that almost sounds more like some weird psych lyrics than any sort of stories for kids!

Titles include "Freedom With Us", "Going Away", "3rd Reanimation", "Mountain Melody", "In The Cradle Of Your Hands", "Follow My Dream", and "Wake Up". CD

✨✧ SBBSBB (Wolanie O Brzek Szkla) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Supraphon/GAD (Poland), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing work from SBB – billed by the label as "two progressive suites in which shattered glass eyes collide with the trio's hectic madness"! We can't really tell you at all what they mean by that – but we can say that the level of the record is right up there with the best work of this Czech power trio from the 70s – a keyboard-driven group who are equal parts prog and fusion, and who really make magic on the two extended tunes in the set! There's vocals on the record, but the side-long length of the tracks allows for a lot more instrumental moments – with some especially nice work from Jozef Skrzek as he stretches out on moog, Clavinet, and other keyboards – maybe giving Rick Wakeman a run for his money in the process! Titles include "Odejscie" and "Wolanie O Brzek Szkla". CD features two more shorter bonus tracks – "Ucisk W Dolku" and "Bitwy Na Obrazach". CD

✨✧ Show BandPunkt Styku – Lost Gem Of Polish Funk ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer trio from 70s Poland – one who are very heavy on Hammond, and play with a sweet funky feel! The group mostly played live – both in Poland and Sweden – and also did some soundtrack work as well – but this is really the first-ever commercial release of their music as an album – a much-needed look at this really rare slice of Eastern European grooves! Unlike most of their contemporaries on that side of the Iron Curtain, these guys never jam too much, nor ever get to fusiony – and instead clearly draw inspiration from the best soul jazz combos of the 60s, plus the work of soul instrumental groups like The Meters or Bar-Kays – especially in the way they keep things tight, rhythmic, and right on the money. Instrumentation features lots of Hammond, plus bass and drums – and a few points feature some added congas or Fender Rhodes as well. Titles include "Naya Naya", "Ping Pong", "Jasiek Bala", "Punkt Styku", "Taniec Diablow", and "Eja Nalej". CD

Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really weird little record from the Polish scene at the start of the 70s – an instrumental album of exotica, in a mode that's much more like records from a decade before! And yet as with most Polish gems from the time, this set's got something offbeat and unusual going on – maybe a late-to-the-dance effort from a scene that was just finding its own – hearing bits of American exotic music at a sporadic level, and mixing it with a few more familiar elements from closer to home – including some of the slightly-optimistic phrasing from the German easy world during the economic miracle years! Instrumentation from the core group includes Hammond organ, percussion, steel guitar, and standard electric guitar – and production often has nice use of echo, and some larger orchestrations that never get in the way of the solo instruments in the lead. Titles include "Ali Alo", "Cubanacan", "Taniec Hawajski", "Swiatla Rampy", "Ksiezyc Na Tahiti", and "Kiedy Allach Szedl". CD

✨✧ Jiri Stivin with Barre Phillips & Rudolf Dasek5 Ran Do Cepice (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Supraphon/GAD (Poland), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the most adventurous work we've ever heard from Czech reedman Jiri Stivin – a batch of tracks that has him working with a hip array of players from the European scene – all in modes that are as free-thinking and open as some of the best Polish jazz from the time! Stivin shows an unusually strong ear here for tonal colors, exploratory lines, and collaborative improvisation – and although the work approaches free territory, it's never totally unbridled – and always has a nice sense of control throughout. Players include Barre Phillips on bass, Rudolph Dasek on guitar, Zbigniew Seifert on violin, and Stivin plays alto sax and a range of flutes. Titles inlcude "Pet Ran Do Cepice", "Anten", "Dej Vic", "Stiny Psu A Lidi", and "Volej V Pondeli Na Muj Ucet". CD features four bonus tracks rom a 1971 split album titled Jazz System – with Stivin on flute and alto, Petr Marcol on bass, and Milan Vitoch on drums and percussion – on titles that include "Carter Goin Down The Valley", "Deeply Drunk", "Autumn Reminiscences", and "When She Smiled".

GAD (Poland), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer fusion combo from the Polish scene of the 70s – one who seem to take strong inspiration from Weather Report in their sound, and who also feature a very strong bassist in the lead! Wojciech Bruslik is at the helm here on electric bass – often more structured than Jaco Pastorius, but sharing a similar force in the group – and able to both hold things tight in the rhythm department, and encourage the other members to take flight in these very vivid solos. The music's never too jamming – like some of the Euro rock/fusion outfits of the time – and also has some soulful currents, but without being like some of the American soul fusion. The lineup features Fender Rhodes, guitar, drums, and alto and soprano sax – and the set features both a rare radio session, and an additional live performance – both from 1977. Titles include "Blotnik", "Hulaz Dusza", "Zlota Raczka", "Swiatynia Dumania", and "Ladaco". CD

GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dig space age sounds? Then you're going to find plenty to love here – in a record that's filled with sweet keyboard instrumentals, odd electronics, and lots of lovely little melodies – all brought together in a record that easily transports the listener to the planet Venus! 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

GAD (Poland), 1994. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really dynamic trio set from drummer Paul Wertico – a musician most folks know for his work with Pat Metheny, but working here with great contributions from another excellent guitarist – the lesser-known John Moulder! The group's a trio – with Eric Hochberg on bass – and the lean, open setting has Moulder really taking over most of the solo space – playing in a way that's heavy on color, but with a bit of an edge – clearly in a legacy inspired by Larry Coryell and Metheny, but very much his own artist too – especially in this setting. The set was recorded in 1994, but is issued here for the first time ever – and titles include "Toms For Talia", "Time For The Blues", "Magical Space", "Awakening", "Little E", and "Cowboys & Africans".

GAD (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer look at the ultra-obscure world of Polish sound library recordings in the 60s and 70s – music that's even rarer than the small pressing albums from Western Europe at the time, and equally groovy as well! The track selection here is superb – handled by the Soul Service team who gave us the Polish Funk compilations many years back – and there's a great ear for tunes that have a very strong instrumental component, particularly on the jazzier side of the spectrum – as many of these titles could work equally well as modern jazz numbers from the Polish scene, and a few were even recorded by some of that nation's leading jazz musicians. A few tracks get more electric and funkier, a few others a bit trippy – and titles include "Halo Wenus" by Zezpol Mateusza Swiecickiego, "Wysoki Poziom Wody" by High Water Mark, "Trzecia Katarakta" by Czterech, "Rahat Lukum" by Kwintet Boguslawa Rudzinskiego, "Zlosnica" by Polish Jazz Quartet, "Niebo Z Blach Faldowanej" by Grupa Organowa Krzsytofa Sadowskiego, and "Fortepian Na Jednej Nodze" by SBB.

GAD (Poland), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Excellent sounds from Zbigniew Gorny – a Polish composer who worked in the soundtrack field for just over a decade, but made some wonderful music during that time! Gorny's big decade was the 80s, but his sounds here have a depth that's different than most American and European material from the period – as he seems to revel more in some of the cool Italian modes of the previous decade, and also echo some of the more interesting French soundtrack artists too – using styles that are still strongly electric, but which maybe have more warmth than some of the colder, stiffer film work of the generation. As the 90s approach, Gorny seems to embrace keyboards even more – yet still manages to create a depth that might come from a much larger ensemble – as you'll hear in this collection that features a total of 45 tracks, from films that include Okno, Magiczne Ognie, Karate Po Polsku, Prywatne Sledztwo, Zabid Na Koncu, Femia, Sam Posrod Swioch, and Trzy Dni Bez Wyroku.

JMD/Digger's Digest (France), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
An album that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before – served up by a percussionist who spent the mid 70s touring the Caribbean and South Pacific, and who seems to have absorbed a globe's worth of rhythms in the process! The album's probably closest to a jazz fusion album – as there's no vocals, and instrumentation is a mix of electric and acoustic – with lots of keyboard lines throughout, peppered with guitar, alto, tenor, and trumpet – yet the rhythmic changes are very different from familiar fusion, as is the role of the instruments – which don't always get solo space, because they're all so tied to the groove! The whole thing's got an upbeat, freewheeling vibe – sounds filled with plenty of joy and rhythm – and titles include "Tipi Fanm", "Doubout Pou Gade", "Syka", "Marie Blanche", and "Vini Coute E Tann".

Grachan Moncur IIIAco Dei De Madrugada (One Morning I Woke Up Very Early) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Essential stuff – and one of a few albums recorded for BYG/Actual by trombonist Grachan Moncur III – some of his best work after his initial classics for Blue Note! The album features Moncur fronting a European rhythm section – performing one side of interpretations of Brazilian folk tunes: "Aco Dei De Madrugada" and "Ponte Lo"; and another of two originals: "Osmosis" and "Tiny Temper". Anyone familiar with Moncur's style can't help but appreciate his coloristic slides and slurs, or his marvelous textural splashes of tone, or his individual phrasing, shaped more by his unique vision than any standard trombone slide or valve brass tradition. While his wonderful Blue Note sides were very modernist, these BYG sessions find Moncur at his most expansive – more groundbreaking work from one of our favorite "new thing" artists!

Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... About December 5, 2019 (delayed)
A groovy little soundtrack – one scored for a 70s film known as The Doctor & His Sexy Student! The music's got a light and playful kind of feel – partly 70s Euro erotica, but also with some slinkier touches that have a really nice 60s approach at times, and which feature nice little keyboard lines that dance around nicely! The main theme of the film is a bit jaunty, almost cheesy, but the other tracks on the set glide around with a really great feel – and make the soundtrack an excellent discovery from 70s Italy. Titles include "Country Piano", "Claudia In Motoretta", "Indagando", "Strip Tease", "Bi Di Bi Da", "Il Colonello", and "Bossanova Della Sposa". 19 tracks in all, including a few previously unissued numbers, and 4 tracks with vocals by I Cantori Moderni di Alessandro Alessandroni!

A really great pairing of Italian soundtrack talents – the mighty Roberto Pregadio, who gave us the Kriminal and Satanik records – and the great Franco Micalizzi, who served up lots of funky cop/crime grooves in the 70s! This obscure western is scored with a flair that really seems to bring out the best of both composers – modes that are very special, and which move far past any cliches or expectations you might have about the genre! There's some nicely fragile songs that have a surprising amount of power – mixed with bolder passages that almost feel more like they were penned for a contemporary story instead of a western – all wrapped together with really beautiful sound, and just a bit of guest vocals from I Cantori Moderni. Titles include "Fiesta En El Pueblo", "Ballata Per Un Pistolero", "Senza Scampo", "Fiato Sospeso", "Corral De La Moreria", and "Giardini Viennesi". LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful soundtrack penned by the team of Roberto Pregadio and Romano Mussolini, who teamed up a few years before on the classic Kriminal! The style here is even more open and creative than before – sometimes straight jazz, in a mode that rivals the best American soundtracks of its type from the mid 60s – but at other times, the styles get a bit weirder – often thanks to a thin-sounding guitar that kind of wiggles and wobbles into the mix, shaking things up with a mod sort of edge. Other solo instrumentation includes trumpet, flute, accordion, and piano – the latter of which is played by either Mussolini or Pregadio – and the pic disc version features a total of 20 tracks from the film, pressed on very groovy-looking vinyl!

Jazzaggression/Afro 7 (Estonia), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
A totally smoking set of tracks from the Somali scene of the 70s – and maybe the coolest East African music we've heard from the time! The material here is all from a small label that was spun off an appliance store – and the imprint had a really great ear for recording these acts in ways that bring out all their most unusual elements, while still holding onto the strong groove at the bottom! Half the set features work by the Sharero Band – a really great group who have a wicked way with an organ line, so that the instrument has all these sharp edges and odd tunings – which create a cool exotic vibe over the more forward-moving grooves – on titles that include "Sharero", "Caashooy", and "Yaan Cuskanaa". The set features more music from Magool – a group with instrumentation that's maybe more Eastern, in ways that reflect the Islamic culture in Mogadishu, but the tracks also have a strongly percussive vibe too – which makes for a nice match alongside the vocals, on titles "Waly Sita" and "Shimbir Yohou". Last up is a track from guitarist Ahmed Rabsha and Hibbo Nuura – great vocal interplay with a lively vibe, on the striking "Bohol You". LP, Vinyl record album

George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

Arista, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Keyboardist Warren Bernhardt was always a key part of the fusion scene in the late 70s – but he was also a musician who was maybe a bit apart from it, too – as he would allow himself some more introspective moments than some of his contemporaries – even while turning out some tighter grooves in the process! This album's a great illustration of Bernhardt's balance – as Warren plays Fender Rhodes, Oberheim, mini-moog, and acoustic piano too – often with these moments that are lyrical and sensitive, yet still with some soulful fusion currents too – almost as if Bernhardt's working out a larger musical palette within some of the more familiar modes of the time. The group here is a well-chosen combo of equally deeper-minded cats – and includes Steve Gadd on drums, David Spinozza on guitar, Mike Maineri on vibes, and Tony Levin on bass – on titles that include "Praise", "New Moon", "Hang Glidin", "Sara's Touch", and "Manhattan Update".

Brecker BrothersDon't Stop The Music ... CD
One Way, 1977. Used ... $13.99
A stone classic from The Brecker Brothers – working here at a new level for 70s jazz fusion! Sure, it's as slick as it can be – with touches of club and disco grooves to give an even smoother edge to the jazz funk of the Brecker Brothers – but thanks to some solid soloing that's not afraid to go for the easy spots, the album's a lot more solid than an number of sound-a-like copycat LPs to come out at the time! There's more than enough interesting jazz funk numbers on here to keep you happy if you dig a soulful fusion groove, and with Steve Gadd and Lenny White on drums, the beats are heavy enough in the right places. Titles include "Tabula Rasa", "Finger Lickin Good", "Funky Sea, Funky Dew", "Squids", "Petals", and "As Long As I've Got Your Love". CD
