✨✧ Naosuke MiyamotoStep! ... LP
Three Blind Mice/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A group led by bassist Naosuke Miyamoto, but one that features some especially great horn work in the lead! The ensemble's a sextet, and features a three-point frontline with trumpet from Kunji Shigi, alto from Takashi Furuya, and tenor and soprano from Takeshi Goto – really stretching out on a batch of tracks that build strongly from 60s soul jazz expression, but take the tunes to a hipper sort of 70s level. Key numbers include the Harold Land compositions "Step Right Up To The Bottom" and "A New Shade Of Blue" – both of which feature tremendous horn interplay – plus the originals "Where Do They Go", "Blues", and "One For Trane".

Jose Pharos (Jacky Giordano)Boucles Rythmiques (with download) ... LP
Musax/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A cool collection of sound library grooves from French funk maestro Jacky Giordano – working here under the name of Jose Pharos – and turning out a sweet late 70s take on his style! All the tight funk of Jacky's earlier work is in place – there's lots of riffing guitars, quick-stepping basslines, and plenty of drums – but there's also more strings, bits of keyboards, and this warm late 70s clubby glow – a mode that's still a lot more funky than any mainstream Euro disco of the time, but which is definitely paying attention to that world too. A few tracks almost hit a funky fusion mode – and together, all the cuts work like some great lost cop/crime soundtrack from the mid 70s – but one with all funky cuts, all the way through! Titles include "Sport Dance", "Les Dauphins", "The Winner Man", "Cap Horn", "Pente Douce", "Fast March", "The Witch Queen", and "Bass In Milky Way". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elysian SpringGlass Flowers (with download) ... LP
Despa/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very cool record – and one with a sound that's as dreamy as the group's name – a laidback mix of vibes, saxes, piano, and percussion – all used in ways that are airy and open, and very different than most other underground jazz of the time! The group hail from New England, and there's maybe some of the inventiveness of Stark Reality in their style – even if the overall sound is much more acoustic, but still has a slightly fuzzy feel via the production! Instrumentation shifts from track to track – and these guys can definitely swing when they want, too – which they do so more as the album moves on – creating these rough-edged groovers that are unlike anything else we can think of. A truly special record – very different than anything else you might own – with titles that include "Drinktink", "Umbrellas In The Sun", "2 & 2", "Glass Flowers", "Blue Sands", "Lotus", and "7th Sea".

✨✧ Jacky GiordanoPop In – Devil's Train (with download) ... LP
Montparnasse 2000/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest records of the French scene of the 70s – a now-legendary sound library album from Jacky Giordano – and one that's filled with amazing keyboards throughout! Jacky stars with grooves that are like some of the best Lalo Schfrin crime/cop modes of the early 70s – then adds in all these excellent keyboard lines, plus a bit of jazz – with some cuts that have warm Rhodes-like lines, others with a spacier moogier groove – all instrumental, and all wonderfully funky! There's a developed depth to the record that goes way beyond just riffing on a groove – a richness that almost puts some of the best cuts at the level of longer CTI keyboard jazz. Titles include "Terefic War", "The Big Mameluk", "Moving Grooving", "Devil's Train", "Sex Girl", "Blue Circuit", and "Tabla Minor". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hiroshi FukumuraMorning Flight (with bonus download) ... LP
Three Blind Mice/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Genius work from Japanese trombonist Hiroshi Fukumura – working here at the helm of a twin-trombone group that also features the talents of Shigeharu Mukai – in a style that's filled with soul and free-thinking imagination! The two players work together beautifully here – avoiding any of the cliches of trombone-heavy groups from the past – and instead, using the open-ended Three Blind Mice label format to explore new ideas in jazz by hitting a spare, sensitive space that's really great. Sometimes tracks really take off and soar with the sort of inventiveness we'd expect from Slide Hampton at the time – at others, they work together more quietly to use the trombones as great shifters of sound and color. Tracks are all quite long, and other players include Hiroshi Tamura on piano, Tsutomu Okada on bass, and Shinji Mori on drums – on titles that include "Morning Flight", "Winter Song", "Cousin Mary", and "Soldier In The Rain".

✨✧ George OtsukaPhysical Structure ... LP
Three Blind Mice/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Japanese drummer George Otsuka is always one hell of a hip cat – one of those players whose name on a record always means that we'll pick it up – and never fail to hear something wonderful! And while Otsuka first got his start working with a piano trio at the end of the 60s, this sweet set from the mid 70s really has him stretching out nicely – working with a freewheeling group that has plenty of spiritual elements – but in that gentler avant mode you'd find in the Japanese scene of the time. The set's got some especially great Fender Rhodes and piano from Fumio Karashima, plus tenor and soprano sax from Shozo Sasaki – and all tracks are nice and long, and really let the instrumentation build up in this flowing, organic sort of way. Mitsuaki Furuno plays bass, and Norio Ohno adds in a bit of extra percussion too – and titles include a nice reading of "Naima", with lots of fast-moving congas – plus "Physical Structure", "Mustard Pot", and "Little Island".
