LJC (London Jazz Collective)Dark Humour ... CD
LJC (UK), 2007. Used ... $2.99
Very hip work from this large London collective – a jazz-based group, but one with an ear for a wide range of grooves! The feel here is somewhere in a space between the earliest experiments of Chris Bowden and more recent records by groups like Heritage Orchestra or the Matthew Herbert Big Band – a mode that's jazz-based at the core, but often turned towards very fresh sounds and complicated patterns – music that's very clearly a new 21st Century legacy of older styles, served up with a very young, fresh feel! Instrumentation is mostly acoustic, but there's some guitar and keyboards in the mix as well – and the overall presentation of the tunes is straight, but filled with surprising colors and tones that really keep things interesting throughout. Some tracks have vocals – from singers who include Kate Brown, Billie Godfrey, or Baby Sol – and these tracks are a bit more soul-based than some of the others. Titles include "Forward Slash", "Shadows Silence & Dreams", "Open Fields Open Minds", "Closer", "Bouncy Bouncy", "SMG", "AJF", and "Eve's Demon". CD

✨✧ Julie LondonFeeling Good ... LP
Liberty, 1965. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Near-lost work from Julie London – a later album for Liberty, the kind of record that should have become a classic – had she not recorded so much at the time that they got buried in the rush of all her releases! Julie's working in a nice upbeat, swinging style – with some great big band arrangements from west coast maestro Gerald Wilson – who really brings new life into Julie's style with the set! The tunes are mostly familiar 60s numbers on the set, but Wilson's lively backings are plenty playful, and show us a side of Julie that we'd never heard before. Titles include "She's Just A Quiet Girl", "Summertime", "Watermelon Man", "Girl Talk", "I Bruise Easily", and "Won't Someone Please Belong To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Julie LondonIn Person At The Americana ... CD
Liberty/DRG, 1964. Used ... $14.99
A rare live session from Julie London – surprising in that most of her classic work for Liberty was put together with some real studio magic! Yet this time around, the live setting's a real charm – one that makes for a whole new side of London's personality – showing the singer to be much more of an entertainer than we would have expected. The solitary sultriness of Julie's studio albums is really on the backburner – at least in the overall feel fo the recording, with its pronounced audience noise, oft-swinging arrangements, and male vocal quartet in the mix – although when London starts to sing, things often hit that familiar mode, too. Titles include a very boozy version of "Daddy" – almost drunken, we'd say – plus "Lonesome Road", "Send For Me", "Gotta Move", "I Love Paris", "Cry Me A River", and "By Myself". CD

✨✧ Julie LondonJulie Is Her Name (abridged reissue) ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time! The sound of the set is as sexy as the cover – intimate, personal, and breathily sung in a mode that comes across with a brashly adult presentation of the material. Backing only features Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass – leaving Julie plenty of room to take over the record with her vocals – a real masterpiece of understatement, given the setting! Titles include her famous version of "Cry Me A River" – virtually THE version of the tune – plus "I Should Care", "Say It Isn't So", "Gone With The Wind", and "Can't Help Loving That Man".

✨✧ Julie LondonJulie Is Her Name/Julie Is Her Name Vol 2 ... CD
Liberty/EMI, Late 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Two early albums from Julie London – back to back on a single CD! First up is Julie Is Her Name – a landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time! The sound of the set is as sexy as the cover – intimate, personal, and breathily sung in a mode that comes across with a brashly adult presentation of the material. Backing only features Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass – leaving Julie plenty of room to take over the record with her vocals – a real masterpiece of understatement, given the setting! Titles include her famous version of "Cry Me A River" – virtually THE version of the tune – plus "I Should Care", "Say It Isn't So", "Gone With The Wind", "Laura", and "Can't Help Loving That Man". Volume 2 is a lesser-known follow-up to Julie London's classic Julie Is Her Name album. The approach here is similar to the first set – with Howard Roberts backing up Julie's vocals, in a style that's quite similar to that used by Barney Kessel the first time around. Red Mitchell's bass is really the only other instrumentation – and the spareness of the set is stunning – with a nakedness that gets past even Julie's heavy turtleneck on the cover! Titles include "If I'm Lucky", "Little White Lies", "Hot Toddy", "Blue Moon", "Goody Goody", and "Spring Is Here". CD

Julie LondonLatin In A Satin Mood ... LP
Liberty, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
A sweet little swinger from Julie London – a record that goes for a bit of a Latin vibe, in ways that change things up nicely! Ernie Freeman handles the music, so the groove isn't really straight Latin – but more of a syncopated approach that's different from the smoother London sounds on other Liberty albums, topped with some bold trumpet flourishes and marimba bits, too – ala the sounds starting up over at A&M Records! Titles include "Perfida", "Adios", "Vaya Con Dios", "You Belong To My Heart", "Sway", and "Yours". LP, Vinyl record album

Julie LondonYou Don't Have To Be A Baby To Cry ... LP
Liberty, 1963. Very Good+ ... $13.99
An overlooked gem from Julie London's early 60s years on Liberty Records – a time when she was changing up her sound a bit, but still staying strong as one of the sexiest vocalists on the west coast scene! Ernie Freeman handles the backing, and he brings in an undercurrent of soul that's mighty nice – some slight blusesy touches at the bottom of the arrangements, and a few occasional horn solos that give the record a nice bite, even when mellow. Titles include "That Sunday That Summer", "Charade", "Night Life", "Wheel Of Fortune", "Since I Fell For You", "Fools Rush In", "I Wish You Love", and a swinging version of "Wives & Lovers"!

London Experimental Jazz QuartetInvisible Roots ... LP
Scratch/Roundtable (Australia), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About January 29, 2021
That's London, Ontario – not London, England – which means that the group have an even more far-flung sound than you might expect! The album's a brilliant and overlooked gem from the Canadian scene of the 70s – really mindblowing music by a group who are equally great at grooving, and at taking things very far outside – mixing together modes that are sometimes highly rhythmic, other times very loose and freewheeling! We're really not familiar with any of the players from later projects at all – but they're clearly a very hip batch of younger musicians who come together and sparkle brilliantly for this rare set – with a mix of soprano and alto sax, wood flute, cello, piano, bass, funky drums, vibes, and even some other cool effects that really make the record a treat throughout! Titles include the funky gem "Destroy The Nihilist Picnic", plus much more outside material that includes "Time Is Of The Essence", "Edible Wallpaper", "Ron Martin Special With Mustard", "Spain Is For Old Ladies", and "Jazz Widow Waltz". CD also features the bonus track "The Potential Of Something Exquisite". LP, Vinyl record album

Moondog & The London SaxophonicSax Pax For A Sax ... CD
Atlantic, 1994. Used ... $14.99
One of the most dynamic Moondog records we've ever heard – a set that's heavy on saxophone instrumentation, played here by the London Saxophonic ensemble! Saxes handle as much of the rhythms here as they do the melodies – although well recorded and solidly-structured, the tunes still have some of the naive charm of Moondog's early work – kind of an evolution of those earthy inspirations into the fuller sound of a range of saxes. There's also vocals on some numbers – sung by Peter Hammill, Andrew Davis, Stuart Gordon, and others – and titles include "Dog Trot", "Paris", "Bird's Lament", "Fiesta", "Sea Horse", "D Is For Danny", "Shakespeare City", "EEC Suite", and "Mother's Whistler".

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful collection – a full album and rare tracks from sweet-voiced reggae singer Jimmy London, plus a whole bonus disc of other material produced at Randy's too! The core album, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, is wonderful – recorded by a singer who maybe didn't hit the heights of some of his contemporaries, but who has a really universal soul quality to his vocals – a bit falsetto, a bit deeper and sweeter too – working through a mix of songs from American soul, plus a few originals – all with nicely warm production from Vincent Chin, marking that shift from rocksteady into early reggae! Titles include "Shake A Hand", "They Don't Know", "Hanging Up My Heart", "Just My Imagination", "It's Now Or Never", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Includes bonus tracks by Jimmy – including "Hip Hip Hooray", "Jamaican Festival 72", and "I'll Never Find Another Mood" – plus 38 more bonus tracks – by Lloyd Parks, Dennis Brown, Freedom Group, Alton Ellis, Ethiopians, Dennis Alcapone, Impact All Stars, Augustus Pablo, Carl Murphy, Max Romeo, and others.

Liberty, 1965. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An oft-overlooked gem from Julie London – a dreamy album of Cole Porter tunes, and one that has her singing with small group backing, very much in the mode of some of her best early work for the Liberty label! The group on the album's the Bud Shank Quintet – with Shank on alto and flute, Joe Pass on guitar, Russ Freeman on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Colin Bailey on drums – a great little combo who give the work a light, lyrical feel, and a bit less of the sadness of other London albums. Freeman did the arrangements, and titles include "So In Love", "Get Out Of Town", "Easy To Love", "At Long Last Love", and "In The Still Of The Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty, 1968. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last albums in Julie London's legendary run for Liberty Records – a perfect cap to a phenomenal catalog, and one that still shows London very much at the top of her powers! The backings here are by three different talents – Don Bagley, Kirk Stuart, and Allyn Ferguson – but the sound is nicely unified, and most numbers make strong use of that breathy, up-close style of singing that Julie virtually invented back in the 50s – maybe not as sad and dreamy as back then, given all the mature modes and adult sensuality expressed in London's records of the 60s! Titles include "Bidin My Time", "Soon It's Gonna Rain", "Show Me The Way To Go Home", "This Can't Be Love", "Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year", "The Man I Love", and "The One I Love Belongs To Somebody Else".

Liberty, 1969. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very unusual album for Julie London – one of her few recordings ever to break the more traditional jazz format, and go for a mod sort of swinging 60s sound! The set features London versions of hits by The Doors, Beatles, Monkees, and others – all given a gentle groove by Tommy Oliver, who brings in just enough jazz to make the music work for Julie. And given her great style of singing – still quite laidback and sultry – the tunes take on a really unique feel here – hardly covers at all, and more whole new conceptions of cuts that include "Light My Fire", "Like To Get To Know You", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Sunday Mornin", "Mighty Quinn", "Without Him", "And I Love Him", and "Come To Me Slowly".

✨✧ London Jazz Composers OrchestraThat Time ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 1972/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very rare work from this legendary improvising orchestra – two different recordings from the first decade or so of the group's existence, at a time when they were hardly making any records at all! The first two long tracks are from a 1972 performances in Germany – and feature an early version of the group conducted by Buxton Orr, but with leader Barry Guy in strong formation – in a very large lineup that includes saxes from Evan Parker, Mike Osborne, Trevor Watts, and Alan Wakeman; trumpets from Kenny Wheeler, Harry Beckett, Mark Charig, and Dave Holdsworth; trombones from Paul Rutherford, Mike Gibbs, and Paul Nieman; guitar from Derek Bailey; piano from Howard Riley; percussion and drums from Paul Lytton and Tony Oxley; and more bass from Jeff Clyne and Chris Laurence. The players' ability to move in ways that are both cohesive and individual is breathtaking – on the long selections "Watts Parker Beckett To Me Mr Riley" and "Statements III". Next are two more tracks recorded in London in 1980 – one live, one studio – with some of the same players, but also the addition of Peter Brotzmann and Tony Coe on saxes, Philipp Wachsmann on violin, and John Stevens on percussion – on the tracks "Quasimode III" and "Appolysian".

✨✧ London Jazz FourElizabethan Songbook ... LP
Audio Clarity (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual record from this hip London combo of the 60s – every bit as compelling as their Beatles album, but in a very different way! As the title implies, most songs are from Elizabethan sources – but they're played with an open, modal sort of groove – the more sensitive, lyrical side of the London jazz scene in the 60s – often mixing these brilliant acoustic basslines with light drums, piano, and flute – all to create a fluid groove with plenty of jazz, even when the core sources of the music are quite ancient! Given the light instrumentation, things are quite different from other jazz/classical experiments of the 60s – very far from the cliches you might expect. Titles include "Rondeau", "The Old Spagnoletta", "Flow My Tears", "Orientis", "Roundelay", "The Earle Of Salisbury", and "Green Grows The Holly". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Julie LondonJulie London at Home ... LP
Liberty, 1960. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
One of Julie London's strongest overall albums – a great session that features small group backings with a warm and intimate feel! There's less of the languid sadness of some of Julie's other records, and more of the dreamy floating style of singers like Chris Connor or June Christy on this one. The feeling of the album's great, and it shows that Julie was much more than a pop singer with sexy looks and a smoky finish – although we're happy to hear that on here too! Titles include "Let There Be Love", "Goodbye", "You've Changed", "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To", "Lonesome Road", "They Didn't Believe Me", and "The Thrill Is Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

The group's got a bold, upbeat sort of feel – similar to some of the later Buddy Rich groups of the 70s – and given Rich's popularity in the UK, one might almost think that Bellson's going for a similar vibe here! Tracks are long, with just the right amount of complicated overtones to keep things interesting – and titles include "Blues For Freddy", "Sing A Song Of Love", "Santos", "Put It Right There", "Jus Fer Us", and "Drum Squad".

Benson sings as much as solos on guitar – and the whole thing is a great throwback to the sound of his 70s records – both in terms of the choice of tunes, and the overall spirit – that undeniable charisma that pushed George from the soul jazz underground to superstardom – a quality that's never let up over the years. Titles include "The Ghetto", "Give Me The Night", "Love X Love", "Turn Your Love Around", "In Your Eyes", "Feel Like Makin Love", "Cruise Control", "Affirmation", "Moody's Mood", and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight".

✨✧ Sadik HakimSadik Hakim (London Suite) ... LP
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
One of the greatest moments ever from pianist Sadik Hakim – a player most people know for his contribution to the American bop scene of the late 40s – but an artist who grew even more strongly during his later years in Montreal! This album's a real highlight from that overlooked time in Hakim's career – a set that not only has the musician playing both Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano, but which also highlights his tremendous skill as a writer, too – with a richness that easily rivals the best on the European scene of the time – such as some of our favorite London jazz musicians, or the great on MPS. Side one features the extended "London Suite" – a work that's poetic, but also pretty darn groovy too – and side two features on shorter compositions that include "Liliane", "Grey Cup Caper", and "Moon In Aquarius" – all carried off beautifully by a group that includes Al Khabyyr Sayyd Abdul on alto and flute, Billy Robinson on tenor, and Peter Leitch on guitar.

Francoise HardyMidnight Blues – Paris/London 1968 to 1972 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rare English language recordings from the sublime Francoise Hardy – music that's every bit as wonderful as her famous French recordings – and even more compelling to our Anglo-styled ears! The vocals are wonderful – sung with this sense of darkness that's almost got an echo of Nico at points, given the accent – set to backings that balance this darkness with a bit more light, but never in ways that are overly poppy – and which definitely continue that more sophisticated style that Hardy always brought to her music! There's less "yeh yeh" to the tracks than a few years before – and Francoise is definitely digging deeper music at this point in her career – sometimes with a breathy brilliance that's a bit like Jane Birkin too. Titles include "Bown Bown Bown", "Till The Morning Comes", "Loving You", "In The Sky", "Midnight Blues", "Magic Horse", "Song Of Winter", "Strange Shadows", "Ocean", "The Garden Of Jane Delawney", "Sometimes", "Let My Name Be Sorrow", "Times Passing By", "I Just Want To Be Alone", and "Suzanne".

There's plenty of funk on the record – some great drums, bouncing basslines, and an overall tightness that's more gritty soul than blues – although there's definitely a bluesy bent at times too!

Jimmy James & The VagabondsNew Religion/London Swings/This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds/Open Up Your Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Four classic albums from this hip British soul group – issued here in a single set, with bonus tracks too! First up is New Religion – a record that was also released in America by Atlantic Records. Although they were a UK soul act, Jimmy James and The Vagabonds were a perfect match for the Atlantic soul stable of the 60s. The group had a smooth group style that was partly uptown, partly northern soul – as clearly illustrated in this album, which is divided up into a "mood red: you feel like leaping" side, and a "mood blue: you feel like digging deeper" side. The band chose some good material that really helps them maintain a solid socking soul sound – including "The Entertainer" and "Ain't Love Good, Ain't Love Proud" by Tony Clarke, "Ain't No Big Thing" and "I'm Just A Fool For You Girl" by Gerald Sims, and "Little Boy Blue" and "People Get Ready" by Curtis Mayfield. Also features "Come To Me Softly", a sweet dreamy ballad by Jimmy, and kind of a bit crossover hit for the boys. London Swings is two-sided monster – as the album was originally split with work from the Alan Bown Set too! Here, the CD features just the live material from the soul group – a smoking performance from Jimmy James & The Vagabonds – one that goes way past the sweetness of their hits, and which has a crowd-pleasing, party-hearty approach to soul that's really great! Jimmy and the group serve up versions of "Sock It To Em JB", "That Driving Beat", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "You Don't Know Like I Know", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do". This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds is a record that featured some crossover tracks with New Religion – but the set here just features the exclusive cuts – including "I Feel Alright", "I Can't Get Back Home To My Baby", "Never Like This Before", "I Don't Wanna Cry", and "You Showed Me The Way". Open Up Your Soul is a record with a really wonderful sound – the deeply soulful vocals of Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, mixed with rich arrangements handled by Nicky Welsh, and produced to perfection by Brit maestro John Schroeder! The record's got the sophistication of some of the Richard Evans productions over at Chess/Cadet at the same time – and, no surprise, the group lead off with a great cover of The Dells "Wear It On Our Face" – then roll into cuts that include "Cry Like A Baby", "Good Day Sunshine", "Four Walls", "Everybody Loves A Winner", "If You're Gonna Love Me", and "Open Up Your Soul". CD also features 7 more bonus tracks from singles – including "Why", "Bumper To Bumper", "Close The Door", "Give Us A Light", "I Wanna Be your Everything", "Hungry For Love", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do".

Luaka Bop (Brazil), 2006. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
The glorious return of Os Mutantes – a recent live performance that marks the group's first new album in many many years! The show was recorded before a very enthusiastic audience in London – at a time when the city was in the throes of a recent new wave of interest in Tropicalia – clearly the inspiration for the group's performance here, which is heavy on work from their best years! The lineup features Zelia Duncan in place of Rita Lee on vocals – alongside founders Arnaldo Baptista and Sergio Dias – and the overall sound is pretty great, with some very focused and full-on guitar work throughout. Titles include "Don Quixote", "Ave Gengis Khan", "Tecnicolor", "Virgina", "Cantor De Mambo", "Baby", "El Justiciero", "Balada Do Louco", and "Ave Lucifer". CD

✨✧ Elis ReginaElis Regina In London (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. Used ... $19.99
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British singers at the time – so the sound's a bit different than Elis' Brazilian records, too. Knight's quite sensitive to Regina's way of interpreting a tune – and he nicely follows the soaring, jazzy vibe that Roberto Menescal had given her at home. But the groove's also a bit more open and fluid too – with some slight Brit Easy touches that Really send the whole album home! Titles include a great version of "Upa Neguinho", plus "O Barquinho", "Zazueira", "Giro", "A Volta", "Corrida De Jangada", "Watch What Happens", and "Wave". CD

Amy WinehouseAmy Winehouse Collection (Frank/Back To Black/Lioness/Live In London/Rarities) (5CD set) ... CD
Universal, 2000s. New Copy 5CD ... Just Sold Out!
Way more than just a box set of the key albums from the all-too-short career of Amy Winehouse – as this massive package also features a wealth of rarities and live tracks – some making their CD debut in this limited collection! The set leads off with Frank – the stunning debut from UK soul singer Amy Winehouse – a vocalist with a sound that's instantly captivating, and which will be with us for years! Amy's clearly cut her chops in jazz, but also has a laidback and soulful personality – easily shifting between modes for the right mood of each song, without any of the pretensions that would ruin an album like this. The backings have a proud stepping feel that fits well with tunes like "In My Bed", "What Is It About Men", "F*ck Me Pumps", and "You Sent Me Flying" – really keeping Amy's spirit fresh throughout the whole set! Next is Back to Black – an incredible album from Amy Winehouse – even way better than her fantastic debut! Although a contemporary soul album, this one's steeped in tradition – soul styles that run the gamut from Detroit down to Kingston, and which are carried off here with a rougher, sharper-edged sound than before! The instrumentation on here is really mindblowing – almost at a Motown level, with isolated instruments really crackling out from the fuller backings – all set to rhythms that snap and bounce, and are almost a bit funky at times. Credit is definitely due to producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi – but Amy's vocals are really tremendous too – classic, but really personal and fresh! Titles include "Rehab", "Just Friends", "Back To Black", "Love Is A Losing Game", "He Can Only Hold Her", "Some Unholy War", and "Me & Mr Jones". Next is Lioness Hidden Treasures – a (sadly) posthumous release from Amy Winehouse – a voice we loved for a couple good years before knowing how troubled she was in real life and now lament the loss of – and this set, largely put together by producer Salaam Remi turned out surprisingly well! It'd be pretty easy to bow to cynicism, but for our money, there's more than enough strong stuff here. It features production by Remi, plus Mark Ronson on a couple tracks, and it's a mix of styles that ably demonstrate Amy's depth as an interpreter. There's some great, kinda late night jazzy soul numbers, classic level 60s R&B and thoroughly modern hip hop soul – all with strong vocal performances from Amy. Includes "Our Day Will Come", "Between The Cheats", "Tears Dry (Original Version)", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (2011)", "Like Smoke" feat Nas (and some eerily timely lyricism, as of this album's release date), "Valerie ('68 Version)", "Half Time", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Half Time", "Body & Soul" with Tony Bennett, "A Song For You" and more. Next is the 2LP set Live In London – the vinyl debut of material from the DVD of the same name – with titles that include "Just Friends", "Cherry", "Back To Black", "Wake Up Alone", "Tears Dry On Their Own", "He Can Only Hold Her/Doo Wop (That Thing)", "Valerie", "Rehab", "Me & Mr Jones", "Monkey Man" and more. Last is the album Remixes – which features the CD debut of 15 tracks – material from Frank and Back To Black – remixed by MJ Cole, Al Usher, Skeewiff, Truth & Soul, Ghostface, Hot Chip, and others.

Z Records (UK), 2000s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A stunning selection of the sorts of music that really set the London scene on fire at the start of the century – the new wave of broken beat artists who sprung up in the wake of jungle – a whole new generation of producers and performers that really reinvented the sound of the dancefloor for the 21st Century! Yet despite a new ear for rhythm, there's also a strong love of older elements too – a real respect for jazz, sophisticated instrumentation, and fuller, more soulful production than the previous generation – all of which makes these tunes really awash in color, soul, and life! The artists here aren't just British, and include some global talents who were really inspired by the sound going down in the UK – and together, the collection is a wonderful overview of this really magical time – when it seemed like mindblowing music was coming out every single week, and we were ultra-proud to be stocking contemporary cuts like this. 2CD set features 22 tracks in all – and titles include "DJ Power" by NSM, "Save It" by Domu with Face, "Samurai" by Jazztronik, "Organic Juggernaut" by Kaidi Tatham, "Manhood" by Victor Duplaix, "Feed The Cat" by Agent K, "Take Me To Your Sky" by Fourth Kind, "Broken Vibes" by Taylor McFerrin with Vincent Parker, "Hold It Down (Bugz In The Attic's co-operative mix)" by 4Hero, "Baila Conmigo (AtJazz rmx)" by Nova Fronteira, "Afrospace" by Blakai with Bembe Segue, and "Hands" by Agent K.

Play Loud (UK), Late 20s/1930s/1940s/1950s. New Copy ... $29.99 32.99
A really revelatory collection – a set of vintage recordings from the Jewish community in London's East End – songs with sounds that resonate very strongly with the musical sound of New York's Lower East Side during the same stretch of time! There's definitely some of the jazz promised in the title, and plenty of klezmer-styled instrumentation – but many tracks are vocal, and a fair bit also move into Yiddish comedy modes, which is A-OK with us – kind of a London variation on modes you might know from Mickey Katz and some of his contemporaries, especially on the postwar tracks, which dominate the set. The package has a great set of notes, and titles include "Beigels" by Max Bacon, "Tzena Tzena Tzena" by Johnny Franks & His Kosher Ragtimers, "A Letter To My Mother" by Lew Stone & The Monseigneur Band, "Selection Of Hebrew Dances No 1" by Ambrose & His Orchestra, "Festival Of Britain" and "Whitechapel" by Chaim Towber with Johnny Franks Orchestra, and "Petticoat Lane" by The Plaza Band – plus "Jews Temporary Shelter 75th Anniversary Appeal", from a rare 1960 flexidisc!

VariousSurrender To The Rhythm – The London Pub Rock Scene Of The 70s (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A fantastic introduction to one of the most confusing British styles of the 70s – the huge pub rock moment that preceded punk, and which offered up a stripped-down approach to the music that helped set the scene for plenty of later changes to come! The name is a bit tricky to explain – much of these bands did play pubs and smaller venues, but they also represented a shift amidst the rising tide of arena rock and overblown concept albums – artists who were maybe getting back to basics with tight, sharp songcraft, and the kind of hooks that first made rock and roll so great in the first place – but also served up with all the sense of variety that had crept into the music from the start! There are a few big names that have always been associated with pub rock – but this set is the first we've seen to really showcase the true scope of the music – with 71 tracks in a nice slipcase with detailed notes - work by Chris Spedding, Moon, Legend, Wild Angels, Dr Feelgood, Flip City, Byzantium, Razorbacks, Chaz & Dave, Fox, Count Bishops, Mott The Hoople, Ducks Deluxe, Kiburn & The High Roads, National Flag, Jona Lewie, Roogalator, Deep Feeling, Status Quo, Steve Ellis, STray, The Pirats, Squeeze, Merton Parkas, Inmates, Ian Gomm, and many others!

As with some of Kenton's other excellent 70s sessions, the players on the records are lesser-known than on his classic sets – but all are extremely well-suited to the Kenton groove, and are younger players that have a free-thinking approach that makes for some great solo work. Tracks are all relatively long, and have a rhythmic pulse that's really great – not really electric, but clearly informed at times by the use of electric instrumentation in bigger bands at the time.

Cadillac (UK), 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous early recording from David Murray – recorded in London (as you'd guess by the title), but with all the best spirit of his early loft jazz sides! There's a tightness here that's missing from some of Murray's other albums of the period – a sense of soulful, spiritual swing that only seems to make the album open up even more, and which allows for some incredibly rhythmic solo work from Murray. We love this one to death, and would easily rank it as one of our favorite David Murray recordings ever – and would also say that the album's noteworthy for some great work from Butch Morris on cornet and Curtis Clark on piano – working in a quintet with Brian Smith on bass and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Titles include "Jas Van", "Secret Of The Circle", "Murray's Steps", and "Cancion De Amor En Espanol". LP, Vinyl record album

Volume 7 is first – a fascinating look at musical modes in London during the big years of postwar immigration – a time when former residents of the crumbling British Empire were flooding to London for jobs and a better way of life – often bringing along a huge amount of cultural experience in the process! This set follows wonderfully in the spirit of previous volumes of the series – bringing together a range of different sonic styles that were originally recorded in London as 78rpm singles – where a new wave of Caribbean and West African immigrants were fusing older styles with a newly modern sensibility, and often a fair bit of jazz as well! The set list is wonderful – a great array of well-chosen material – and titles include "Wa Sise" by Willie Payne & The Starlite Tempos, "The Emperor Of Africa" by The Mighty Terror, "Royal Wedding" by The Lion, "Modern Telephone" by Dai Dai Simba, "Sons & Daughters Of Africa" by Lord Beginner, "Caroline" by Trinidad Steel Band, "Ema Foju Ana Woku" by West African Rhythm Brothers, "Kana Kana" by Billy Sholanke, "Boul Ve Se" by Calypso Rhythm Kings, and "My Handy Man" by Marie Bryant. Volume 8 features a huge collection of work from the great Lord Kitchener – maybe one of the most important singers to move the music of the Caribbean to British shores during the postwar years – a time when he was a strong voice to new waves of immigrants arriving in London, and when he was also making a lot of inroads for criss-crossing post-colonial culture too! The base style is calypso, but Kitchener always handles the music with a spirit that's all his own – modern, witty, and urbane – often with some nice currents of jazz in the instrumentation, and plenty of social commentary that made music like this a great precursor to later righteous moments in jazz, funk, soul, and reggae. Titles include "No More Taxi", "Food From The West Indies", "Come Back In The Morning", "Pirates Of Paria", "Drink A Rum", "If You Brown", "Life Begins At Forty", "Mistress Jacob", "Africa My Home", "Kitch In The Jungle", "Tie Tongue Mopsie", and "London Is The Place For Me".

Play Loud (UK), Late 20s/1930s/1940s/1950s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really revelatory collection – a set of vintage recordings from the Jewish community in London's East End – songs with sounds that resonate very strongly with the musical sound of New York's Lower East Side during the same stretch of time! There's definitely some of the jazz promised in the title, and plenty of klezmer-styled instrumentation – but many tracks are vocal, and a fair bit also move into Yiddish comedy modes, which is A-OK with us – kind of a London variation on modes you might know from Mickey Katz and some of his contemporaries, especially on the postwar tracks, which dominate the set. The package has a great set of notes, and titles include "Beigels" by Max Bacon, "Tzena Tzena Tzena" by Johnny Franks & His Kosher Ragtimers, "A Letter To My Mother" by Lew Stone & The Monseigneur Band, "Selection Of Hebrew Dances No 1" by Ambrose & His Orchestra, "Festival Of Britain" and "Whitechapel" by Chaim Towber with Johnny Franks Orchestra, and "Petticoat Lane" by The Plaza Band – plus "Jews Temporary Shelter 75th Anniversary Appeal", from a rare 1960 flexidisc!

✨✧ ClashLondon Calling (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1979. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the crowning masterpiece by The Clash – and a record that certainly pushed them out of the punk rock ghetto and into the collections of countless mainstream folks over the years! This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the best energy of the previous two records and gave it a strong new focus – one that draws on roots as deep as the late 50s Elvis reference of the cover art, but which also bubbled over with newly approaching 80s musical ideas and politics! Yet the message never gets in the way of the guitar-heavy tuneful appeal of the songs – ringing out for decades on classics like "Train In Vain", "London Calling", "Spanish Bombs", "Lost In The Supermarket", "Guns Of Brixton", "Clampdown", and "Rudy Can't Fail".

✨✧ Thelonious MonkLondon Collection ... CD
Jazz Heritage, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very late work from the legendary Thelonious Monk – but surprisingly great as well! The session was recorded in London – as you might guess from the title – and although Monk's not working with his regular quartet with Charlie Rouse, he does interact wonderfully with a trio that includes Art Blakey on drums and Al McKibbon on bass! Blakey's drums have this nice crispness that transforms the Monk experience – and some performances stretch out in a nicely inspired way. CD

✨✧ David MurrayLondon Concert ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1978. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous early recording from David Murray – recorded in London (as you'd guess by the title), but with all the best spirit of his early loft jazz sides! There's a tightness here that's missing from some of Murray's other albums of the period – a sense of soulful, spiritual swing that only seems to make the album open up even more, and which allows for some incredibly rhythmic solo work from Murray. We love this one to death, and would easily rank it as one of our favorite David Murray recordings ever – and would also say that the album's noteworthy for some great work from Butch Morris on cornet and Curtis Clark on piano – working in a quintet with Brian Smith on bass and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Titles include "Jas Van", "Secret Of The Circle", "Murray's Steps", and "Cancion De Amor En Espanol" – and the CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Nairobi" and "Flowers For Albert". CD
