Leo NocentelliAnother Side (purple, yellow & green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $27.99 29.99
Never-issued solo work from the legendary Leo Nocentelli – best known as the killer guitarist in The Meters, but a completely different artist here on his own – and one who might well have taken the 70s world of soul music by storm, had this record been released! The record has a vibe that's really unique – mostly acoustic guitar, handled in territory that's a bit like Bill Withers – but with all this cool, echoey production on Leo's vocals – which puts the whole thing in trippier soul territory, ala 70s work by Allen Toussaint or Shuggie Otis! Toussaint is actually on the record, adding in a bit of keyboards – and the rest of the instrumentation is very lean, with work from fellow Nola musicians George Porter on bass, and James Black and Zibagoo Modeliste on drums. Yet throughout, the whole focus is on Nocentelli – really coming across with this fantastic vibe as a singer, as he works through original tunes that bring together acoustic soul with a swampy Louisiana vibe – all at a level that's unlike anything else we've ever heard. Titles include "You've Become A Habit", "Thinking Of The Day", "Riverfront", "I Want To Cry", "Pretty Mittie", "Give Me Back My Loving", "Till I Get There", and "Tell Me Why". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-colored purple, yellow & green vinyl pressing.)

Azar LawrenceShadow Dancing (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Riza/Tidal Waves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 26.99
An obscure set from Azar Lawrence – self-produced and self-arranged, in a smooth modern soul mode that's kind of an 80s extension of his work in the 70s for Prestige. There's a definite R&B groove on most tracks, and vocalist Coco Evans sings on 2 of the album's 8 tracks – and an undercurrent of bass heavy funk all the way through! Lawrence is on reeds, and other players in the group include Leo Nocentelli on guitar and James Gadson on drums. Titles include "Keep It Hot", "Your Love Is Keeping Me Alive", "Magic In The Night", "Shadow Dancing", "One More Time", and "Inside Stuff". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram pressing – with obi and insert.)

✨✧ Kip HanrahanTenderness ... CD
American Clave, 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully complicated work from Kip Hanrahan – a mix of styles that's impossible to describe – with strands of Latin, jazz, vocals, and other world rhythm influences coming into play in a style that only could have happened in the New York downtown scene of the 80s. Players include Andy Gonzalez, Leo Nocentelli, Don Pullen, Chocolate Armenteros, Chico Freeman, Milton Cardona, Sting, Andrew Cyrille, and a host of other surprising guests – and the record features vocals by Carmen Lundy, Diahnne Abbott, Fernando Saunders, and Sting. Titles include "I Told Him I Don't Have To Be Beaten", "Deep Summer", "Look The Moon", "Gillian's Folk Song", and "Half Of Sex Is Fear". CD

✨✧ Allen ToussaintSouthern Nights ... LP
Reprise, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn great work from Allen Toussaint – a record that was cut at a time when he'd really made his way into the mainstream of American music, yet could still come across with a hard New Orleans groove! The title cut, "Southern Nights", is a perfect illustration of this fact – as it was written by Toussaint, but became a big hit for Glen Campbell, who recorded a very soppy version of the number. Yet here, Allen turns it into a weird trippy tune – produced with great Sansu production, and backing by New Orleans legends like Leo Nocentelli, George Porter, and Art Neville – all of whom help the tune bristle with new energy, and a really sinister groove. The rest of the record continues in a similar vein – with a spacey LA mellow sound that actually works great for Toussaint's vocals, and gives them a wild flanged-out sound that's pretty amazing – and downright spooky at points! Titles include "Southern Nights", "Basic Lady", "Last Train", "Worldwide", "You Will Not Lose", "When The Party's Over", and "What Do You Want The Girl To Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label stereo pressing. Cover has ring and edge wear.)
