✨✧ Augustus PabloOriginal Rockers ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1970s. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the deepest, trippiest sounds from the Jamaican scene in the 70s – a classic collection of dubbed-up cuts from Agustus Pablo – who throws in loads of sweet melodica lines to the rhythms, at least in between hits of the pipe he's smoking on the cover! Pablo took the laidback side of dub to a whole new level with a record like this – finding a way to let the rhythms bump out and swirl around themselves in space, then improvise his own keyboard lines with the airy tone of the melodica – itself already a haunting instrument, but taken to very original territory in the hands of Augustus. Titles include "Rockers Dub", "Up Warrika Hill", "Cassava Piece", "Tubby's Dub Song", "Jah Dread", "Brace A Boy", "Thunder Clap", "Park Lane Special", "New Style" and "A P Special".

✨✧ ScientistScientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires ... LP
Greensleeves/Dub Mir, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Scientist spins out on a dub-driven power boat – scanning the swamps to drive out the vampires and a host of other ghouls too – all while reinventing Jamaican music in the process! The record's filled with lots of cool electric elements – those weird production effects and electronic doodles that make the music of Scientist so revolutionary – especially when spun out over a still-familiar backdrop supplied by Roots Radics, with a core essence that's very much from the pre-digital world of Jamaican music. Rhythm tracks were done at Channel One, and Scientist mixed the set at King Tubbys – a host of dub mini-masterpieces that include "The Voodoo Curse", "Dance Of The Vampires", "Blood On His Lips", "Cry Of The Werewolf", "the Mummy's Shroud", "The Corpse Rises", "Night Of The Living Dead", "Your Teeth In My Neck", "Plague Of Zombies", and "Ghost Of Frankenstein".

Wild dubs from the legendary King Tubby – not really a proper live record, but rather an amazing batch of studio extrapolations that Tubby let loose at a famous concert with The Wailers – reworked beautifully in the studio with some really incredible sounds! Heavy, hypnotic rhythms that pull you and don't let up – plus a few soulful, rootsy vocal numbers, too – and the titles include "I Am, I Am The King", "Most High In Dub", "Coxsone Down Beat", "Come On Little Girl, Come On", "Second Cut", "Ethiopia Land Of My Father" and more.

✨✧ Jacob MillerWho Say Jah No Dread ... LP
Greensleeves, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from the mighty Jacob Miller – material recorded with Augustus Pablo in the years before Miller went onto greater fame in Inner Circle – and with a rootsy vibe that's still extremely powerful all these many years later! Pablo's at the height of his talents here – able to hit just the best righteous modes, but without ever going over the top – at a level that seems completely effortless, and which really empowers the message in Miller's vocals! The set's overflowing with gems – and titles include "Keep On Knocking", "Each One Teach One", "Who Say Jah No Dread", "False Rasta", "Baby I Love You So", and "Girl Named Pat" – plus the dubs "Knocking Version", "Hungry Town Skank", "King Tubby Meet Rockers Uptown", "Jah Dread", "Each One Teach One Version", and "Girl Named Pat Version".

Greensleeves (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
This is sort of a Prince Jammy riff on the format of the popular Junjo Lawes-produced Scientist dub series. Nonetheless, he steps up to bat, and indeed defeats the evil planet munchers, with the able help of the Roots Radics rhytnm section. Recorded at Channel One and mixed at Tubby's – and how can you argue with that!? Fat, heavy rhythms dubbed into deep, deep outer space by the heir to the throne! 8 tracks in all, including "Conspiracy On Neptune", "Saturn Bombardment", "Attack on Ganymede", "Martian Encounter", "The Great Red Spot", "Life On Uranus", "Final Destruction" and "War In The Asteroid Belt".

A long overlooked roots treasure from harmony vocal trio Tetrack! Let's Get Started has top notch production by Augustus Pablo & arrangements by Horace Andy, plus the solid best of the Channel One musicians circa the late 70s – but it's singers Carlton Hines, Paul Mangaroo and Dave Harvey who carry this one. They take turns on lead vocals and harmonies, and the gentle sense of soul and spiritual lyrical focus is as sweet sounding and soul stirring as can be. Includes "Only Jah Jah Know", "Let's Get Started", "Look Within Yourself", "Isn't It Time", "Couldn't Walk Away", "Judge & Jury", "It's Up To You", "Let's Get Together", "We Don't Get Along" and "Simple Things".

✨✧ Linval ThompsonLinval Presents – Encounters Pac Man (2CD pressing) ... CD
Greensleeves, 1982. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Pac Man has never looked so menacing before – but the cover image might be fitting, given the way the dub versions here rips into the cuts and chomps them down to their barest essence – with the help of the Roots Radics band! The album's a key illustration of that new generation of dub unleashed by Scientist and some of his contemporaries – versions that go way way past the originals, and are often so abstracted, they work together more as dark splatters of noise, with just a slight Kingston undercurrent to tie them to familiar reggae modes. Great stuff throughout – a record that's definitely as compelling as it's cover – and with titles that include "Under Surveillance", "Prince's Wrath", "Space Invaders Regroup", "World Cup Squad Lick Their Wounds", "Vampire Initiative", "Malicious Intent", "The Dark Secret Of The Box", "SOS", "Man Trap", and "Look Out Behind You". This great version also includes a bonus CD with original vocal versions by Eek-A-Mouse, Dennis Brown, Linval Thompson, The Viceroys and more. CD

Kenny BurrellGuitar Forms ... LP
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny! The album has Kenny's guitar set to arrangements by Gil Evans – who gives the session a modern edge that really sets it apart from other Burrell albums of the time. Kenny's freed to do his thing – wonderfully, we might add – and Gil paints these washes of sound, color, and tone with the help of hip players like Johnny Coles, Louis Mucci, Julius Watkins, Steve Lacy, Richie Kamuca, Elvin Jones, and Lee Konitz. Tracks include "Lotus Land", "Downstairs", "Moon & Sand", "Terrace Theme", "Greensleeves", and "Loie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneAfrica/Brass/Coltrane Jazz ... LP
Impulse/Not Now, 1960/1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Quite a different album than usual for John Coltrane, but a classic one too – and a set that has the great one exploring his ideas in a set of longer tracks recorded with an expanded jazz orchestra! The format's hardly the mainstream big band of the time – as Coltrane's filled the group with very hip players – including Booker Little, Freddie Hubbard, Julian Priester, and Eric Dolphy – in addition to usual compatriots who include McCoy Tyner, Reggie Workman, and Elvin Jones. The tunes have a soaring, modal sort of pulse – one that's filled with color and light from the addition of the other horn players, but which still has plenty of space for extended, exploratory solos. Coltrane plays both tenor and soprano sax – and titles include the legendary 16 minute track "Africa", a classic reading of "Greensleeves", redone here as a modal searching spiritual track, and "Blues Minor". This 2 CD set also includes the album Coltrane Jazz. The title may be a simple one, but the record really marks a key point in John Coltrane's development – an embrace of the newer freedoms allowed to him at Atlantic Records, but in a way that's a bit more subtle than some of his other work for the label! At one level, the record moves at the same groove as Trane's later Prestige years – with rhythm mostly from Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – carving out some sharp lines for Coltrane to cascade over on tenor sax. Yet there's also a new sense of darkness here too – one that moves into edgier territory, and which isn't nearly as settled in as before. These qualities sneak out of both original numbers like "Harmonique", "Fifth House", and "Like Sonny" – as well as standards like "My Shining Hour" and "Little Old Lady". And they really come to the forefront on the classic "Village Blues" – the one track that features the new Coltrane group of McCoy Tyner, Steve Davis, and Elvin Jones! LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneComplete Africa/Brass Sessions ... CD
Impulse, Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99
Very unusual work by Coltrane – sessions that feature his classic quartet playing in front of larger orchestra backings conducted by Eric Dolphy! The tracks feature Trane leading a group young modernists through a set of larger arranged charts, woven tightly together in a soulful spiritual groove that's similar to some of Max Roach's projects like this from the same time. Players include Booker Little, Eric Dolphy, McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, Reggie Workman, and Julius Watkins – and this 2CD set features all of the material that was issued on the first album, plus other tracks that came out during the 70s. There's a total of 8 cuts in all – and titles include "Song Of The Underground Railroad", "Blues Minor", "Africa", "The Damned Don't Cry", and "Greensleeves". CD

Paul DesmondPaul Desmond & The Modern Jazz Quartet ... CD
Red Baron, 1971. Used ... $11.99
A rare pairing, and a great one too – as Paul Desmond joins the Modern Jazz Quartet for a unique live set from the early 70s – with a great sound that's even more wonderful than we expected! Desmond is always great no matter what the setting – but he sounds especially nice working here alongside the mix of piano and vibes offered by the MJQ – in a style that's subtle, but never as sleepy as some of their other records from the period, thanks to some sharper edges from Desmond. The alto sax really brings something new to this record – carving out snakey little lines that glow and glimmer with a nicely subdued soul – and in a way, the MJQ really just seem to be holding back in a role where they're Paul's accompanists, and not the main stars of the set. Titles include "Greensleeves", "Blue Dove", "You Go To My Head", "East Of The Sun", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Bag's New Groove", and "Jesus Christ Superstar". CD

Paul Desmond & Jim HallFirst Place Again (with bonus track) ... CD
Warner/Gambit (Spain), 1959. Used ... $13.99
The first big Paul Desmond solo album of the 60s – and a standout set that's very much in the tradition of his best work on RCA! This rare side was cut for Warner Brothers during a time when they were taking a brief dip into jazz – and it's a rarely-heard set that features Jim Hall on guitar, Connie Kay on drums, and Percy Heath on bass, all backing up Paul with a spare "after hours" sound that's a marked change from his tightly woven work with Brubeck. Desmond's alto is full of possibilities here – working wonders with familiar tunes like "Greensleeves", "You Go To My Head", "Time After Time", and "East Of The Sun" – as well as with the John Lewis modern number "2 Degrees East, 3 Degrees West". CD also features the bonus track "Susie". CD

Frances FayeFrances Faye Sings Folk Songs ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good ... $2.99
A surprisingly great set that features Francis Faye singing jazz renditions of older folk songs – one of the first such sessions of its type (the genre would become more popular a few years later), and done with an approach that has the songs all re-tuned for a 50s modern ear by Russ Garcia, who handled arrangements for the set. Howard Roberts plays a nicely raspy guitar at the bottom of some of the backings, giving them a slightly folksy flourish, but Garcia's mostly using a four-trombone frontline to push the jazz component of the tunes. Includes versions of "Frankie & Johnny", "Clementine", "Three Ravens", "Go Way From My Window", "St James Infirmary", "John Henry", and "Greensleeves". LP, Vinyl record album

Terumasa HinoTrans-Blue ... LP
Sony (Japan), 1984. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Terumasa Hino's looking a bit cheesy on the cover of this one – but the record's hardly the slick 80s affair you might expect – and instead is a great session of ballads and more gentle numbers, recorded in the US with full string backings and a warmly sensitive approach to the music! There's a depth here that goes beyond most of Hino's other work of the decade – an approach to the tunes that reminds us a bit of Art Farmer or Freddie Hubbard in a similar setting – with warmly lyrical lines undercut with a slight hint of sadness – that "blue" reference in the title and cover image. Hino plays cornet with a core group that includes Jim Hall on guitar, Kenny Kirkland on piano, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Grady Tate on drums – plus a bit of vocals – and strings are arranged by David Nadian. Titles include "Greensleeves", "Black Orpheus", "Alone Alone & Alone", "Nature Boy", and "Lush Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Isao Suzuki/Tsuyoshi YamamotoSamba Club ... CD
King (Japan), 1981. Used ... $13.99
A wicked wicked set of tracks from Japan – one that blends together jazzy riffing and Brazilian rhythms, all played with a surprisingly soulful bent! Suzuki's on bass and piccolo bass, and Yamamoto plays not only electric piano but also a bit of electric harpsichord – which adds a cool feel to the album, and one that's almost like some lost European soundtrack. Rhythms are mostly in a breezy sort of style that mixes samba with bossa jazz – and Donald Bailey is in the group on drums, providing some very nice bottom to the set. The whole thing's great, with a really unique style – one that's so great it even transforms older numbers like "Night & Day", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Greensleeves", and "La Vie En Rose". Also features an especially great take on Michel Colombier's "Overture"! CD

Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $19.99
Rare early 60s recordings from the Japanese scene – issued here in a 70s album on Three Blind Mice, and with a depth and complexity that's a fair bit like some of the more modern work on that label! The tracks here are all quite long – and feature interplay between the bass and drums that recall the more openly creative Three Blind Mice mode – a style that shakes off more conventional combo rhythms, in exchange for a more equally-weighted approach. Players here vary from track to track, and include drummer Masahiko Togashi, trumpeter Terumasa Hino, guitarist Sadanori Nakamurei, and bassist Hideto Kanai – and tracks include "If I Were A Bell", "Obstruction", "Nardis", and "Greensleeves".

Late ballad work from the mighty Ben Webster – mostly recorded right at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – in the tenorist's final years, but at a time when he could still make great magic with his tone! The set brings together tracks recorded in a variety of settings – one in a small group with Teddy Wilson on piano, another in a quintet with Ole Kock Hansen on piano and Ole Molin on guitar, a few more with the great Kenny drew on piano – and two with great large groups for Danish Radio, including one with Sahib Shihab in the lineup. Titles include "Stardust", "Cry Me A River", "For Heaven's Sake", "Greensleeves", "Old Folks", "My Romance", and "Willow Weep For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – one that shows that Trane's groundbreaking group with Jimmy Garrison, Elvin Jones, and McCoy Tyner could still express themselves with a quite a bit of soulfulness when they wanted. The album's completely solid all the way through – and although it won't change your life as much as A Love Supreme, it will show what a fantastically strong player Coltrane was, in any sort of setting! Titles include "I Wish I Knew", "What's New", "Nancy", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "All Or Nothing At All". Plus, this expanded CD version features a whole bonus CD of extra tracks – 14 in all, including alternates of "Greensleeves", "They Say It's Wonderful", "All Or Nothing At All", and "It's Easy To Remember".

The film's a very cool British heist story, with Michael Caine in the lead – and while Quincy brings in plenty of the jazz of his background, there's also some warm elements that feel like some of the best British sound library material of the period – particularly in the use of electric bass on some of the more open, airy numbers – creating this great stepping vibe and subtle groove amidst the changing moods of the music! The title song is the great "On Days Like These" – sung at first by Matt Monro, then done in an instrumental version – and other titles include "It's Caper Time", "Greensleeves & All That Jazz", "Getta Bloomin' Move On", and "Somethings Cookin".

Sony/Real Gone, 1961/1983. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of Holiday albums from Nashville guitar legend Chet Atkins – back to back in a 2CD set, complete with a huge amount of bonus material too! First up is the classic Christmas With Chet Atkins – a sweet strummy Christmas album from the great Chet – a set that's filled with guitar-based tunes that have a special Holiday feel – some of which have warm vocal passages from the Anita Kerr quartet! We always love Chet on RCA during the classic years, but his warm sound is especially nice for the Holidays – a sort of cozy, cuddly approach to guitar that sounds great on these familiar tunes – and which is recorded here with some of those perfect RCA country touches of the early 60s! Titles include "Jingle Bell Rock", "Jingle Bells", "Silver Bells", "White Christmas", "Blue Christmas", "Silent Night", and "Little Drummer Boy". Next is East Tennessee Christmas – an early 80s album from guitar great Chet Atkins – one that really updates his sound for a modern generation, yet still leaves plenty of room for his masterful work on the strings! The record has fuller backings on most tracks – gentle orchestrations that still have the guitar in the lead – and there's also some chorus vocals, in a mode that's kind of an 80s take on the older Anita Kerr Singers approach. Titles include "East Tennesse Christmas", "Let It Snow", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Away In A Manger", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and "Jingle Bell Rock". CD set features LOTS of bonus tracks – including "Christmas Carols", "Jingle Bells", "Greensleeves", "Bells Of St Mary's", "Winter Wonderland (1976)", "White Christmas (1976)", "Jingle Bells (1976)", "Silver Bells (1976)", "Ave Maria", "Winter Walkin", "Sleighbells Reindeer & Snhow", and lots more.

Paul's playing here with his groovy little group that features a vibes/piano/bass/drum lineup, in addition to Paul's beautiful reed playing. The group grooves in long modal lines, with a lot of different musical references (such as Indian music, or Western religious music) criss-crossing, but not overwhelming the "jazz" element, as happened way too often in Horn's earlier LPs. Tracks include "Shadows", "Cycle", "Greensleeves", and "In The Bag". Great stuff, and a beautiful record that often gets overlooked! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Andre KostelanetzComplete Christmas Albums (Joy To The World/Wonderland Of Christmas/Wishing You A Merry Christmas/bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of classic Christmas albums from Andre Kostelanetz from the 60s – all done in that very popular style of his! The set begins with Joy To The World – a lush album of strings and other rich orchestral touches – the sort of Christmas record that's maybe best to put on way into the evening – when the candles have dimmed, and most of the folks are weary – as the Kostelanetz approach is more than enough to send the kids off to dreamland! Earl Wrightson provides some baritone vocals, and there's some chorus vocals at other points – but the main focus is Andre's orchestrations, on titles that include "The Skater's Waltz", "What Child Is This/Joy To The World", and "Sleigh Ride" – plus some longer medley tunes. Wonderland Of Christmas features superb Teo Macero production in his best Columbia Records mode – which brings up some of the more lively, dynamic sounds that Andre Kostelanetz brings to his music – almost giving some of the tunes a bachelor pad/hi-fi sort of range! Titles include "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas", "Let It Snow", "The Christmas Song", "Christmas Chopsticks", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town/Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", and "Winter Wonderland/I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus". We Wish You A Merry Christmas is a record that mixes the lush strings of Andre Kostelanetz with some youthful chorus backings and some vocal leads from Phyllis Curtain – in a way that makes the album maybe one of Andre's most somber Christmas records from the 60s! All the hallmark Kostelanetz touches are in place, but the set's definitely one that takes the holiday in its most serious spirit – on titles that include "Silent Night", "Away In A Manger", "What Child Is This", "O Come All Ye Faithful", and "We Three Kings". Bonus tracks include "White Christmas", "Nutcracker Suite", "My Favorite Things", "Greensleeves", a "Christmas Seals promo", and both the Bach and Schubert versions of "Ave Maria". CD

The sound of jazz is always the sound of Christmas in our house – as there's a certain sort of vibe that the music seems to bring to the holiday – where the warmth and personal energy of a jazz performance can really open up a Christmas tune! This set is a great illustration of that quality – as it brings together a wonderful array of Holiday jazz performances – many from the 60s, at a time when the blend of jazz and Christmas was really hitting its heights – plus a few well-chosen numbers from later years, including some Blue Note recordings mixed in with Verve numbers. Titles include "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Ramsey Lewis, "The Little Drummer Boy" by Kenny Burrell, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Tom Scott, "Frosty The Snowman" by Roy Hargrove & Christmas McBride, "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by Jimmy Smith, "Let It Snow" by Nelson Rangell, "I'll Be Home For Christmas/Sleigh Ride" by Eliane Elias, "Greensleeves" by John Coltrane, "Those Soulful Jingle Bells" by Mark Whitfield, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" by Bill Evans, "Silver Bells" by Kevin Eubanks, "Swingle Jingle" by Lionel Hampton, and a previously unreleased track – "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" by Oscar Peterson.

✨✧ John KleinChristmas Sound Spectacular/Let's Ring The Bells All Around The Christmas Tree ... CD
Real Gone, 1959/1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sonic spectacular for Christmas – two unusual Holiday albums from the glory days of RCA's Living Stereo series! First up is A Christmas Sound Spectacular – a set that features a bell-heavy approach to seasonal favorites – not in a way that's overdone Carillion music, but instead this mode that mixes the sonic dynamics of the hi-fi era with a range of rich tones on bells and chimes! In other words, things sometimes get nicely way out – as on John Klein's RCA work with Sid Ramin – on tunes that include "Gesu Bambino", "Winter Wonderland", "Jingle Bells", "Silver Bells", "Frosty The Snowman", and "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town". Let's Ring The Bells All Around The Christmas Tree is a record that features some of the bells promised in the title – mixed with richer arrangements that also sometimes feature a bit of chorus vocals! The record's the kind of album that's great to put on later on Christmas evening – after everyone's completely stuffed to the gills, and kind of nodding out around the tree – because there's some sleepier moments in the mix, and a few more sprightly numbers that may have you rising from your chair, and heading into the kitchen for some leftovers and beer. Titles include "Greensleeves", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Sleigh Ride", "All Around The Christmas Tree", "The Little Drummer Boy", and "The Christmas Song". CD

✨✧ Paul DesmondFirst Place Again (180 gram Japanese pressing) ... LP
Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first big Paul Desmond solo album of the 60s – and a standout set that's very much in the tradition of his best work on RCA! This rare side was cut for Warner Brothers during a time when they were taking a brief dip into jazz – and it's a rarely-heard set that features Jim Hall on guitar, Connie Kay on drums, and Percy Heath on bass, all backing up Paul with a spare "after hours" sound that's a marked change from his tightly woven work with Brubeck. Desmond's alto is full of possibilities here – working wonders with familiar tunes like "Greensleeves", "You Go To My Head", "Time After Time", and "East Of The Sun" – as well as with the John Lewis modern number "2 Degrees East, 3 Degrees West". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jo JonesJo Jones Trio ... LP
Everest, 1959. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A real classic from drummer Jo Jones – and the kind of a spare session that really lets his work on drums come to the forefront! Jo's working here with Ray Bryant on piano and brother Tommy Bryant on bass – in a mode that's got some of the soulful undercurrents of the Bryant recordings of the time, but which is also a bit more rhythmically-oriented – in a way that let's Jones' swinging skills dominate a bit more. Titles include "Jive At Five", "Greensleeves", "Philadelphia Bound", "I Got Rhythm", "Bebop Irishman", and "Little Susie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mexican mono pressing on Tizoc with deep groove.)
