Les Baxter & 101 StringsQue Mango ... LP
Alshire, 1970. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A later album, but one that still features Les doing some great Latiny bits – heading up the 101 Strings ensemble, for a sweeping and groovy kind of sound! The whole album's very similar to some of Les' Capitol work from the early 60s, but has a slightly more modern twist – including the use of electric bass underneath the arrangements, which creates a really nice gently loping groove! One of Les' best – despite the late date – and with tracks that include "Jungle Montuno", "Que Mango", "Bocha Chica", "Affair In Aruba", and "Tropicando". Very groovy, baby! LP, Vinyl record album
(Purple label pressing.)

DillingerCB 200 (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Mango/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy ... $22.99
A Dee Jay classic from the Dub Organiser! One of the first LPs to break large on the international scene, and certainly one of the first Dee Jay records to do so, this Channel One Hoo Kim production features the Ragnam Piza toasting mightily over some fat rhythms provided Benbow & Sly, Family Man and an all star cast of other great Jamaican session men. There's a bit of back & forth toasting with Trinity on "Crankface", the huge hit "Cokane In My Brain" and other essentials like "Buckingham Plaace", "Plantation Heights" and the title track.

Linton Kwesi JohnsonBass Culture ... LP
Mango, 1980. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Bass Culture, but way more than that too – as the album is a classic kernel of wisdom from the great Linton Kwesi Johnson – done up in the mix of spoken and sung passages that always made his records so unique! Dennis Bovell handles the backing and mixing – with lots of nice dubby touches that also bring some slight currents of postpunk moodiness to the record – one of the factors that helped LKJ cross over to so many non-reggae audiences at the time. Titles include "Bass Culture", "Reggae Fi Peach", "Di Black Petty Booshwah", "Inglan Is A Bitch", "Loraine", and "Two Sides Of Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

Mango, 1979. Very Good ... $19.99
The second album From LKJ, a tough and tight follow up to Dread Beat and Blood, with the poet coming just as hard out the box this time around as the first. Johnson's righteous lyrical indignation, terse delivery, and rhythmic focus dovetail perfectly with tight, fat riddims from a crack band headed up by Dennis Bovell and Vivian Weathers. 8 choice numbers in all, including a batch of LKJ classics like "It Noh Funny", "Sonny's Lettah", "Independent Intavenshan", "Fite Dem Back", "Reality Poem" and "Forces of Vicktry", plus "Want Fi Goh Rave" and "Time Come".

A modern dub classic! Dennis Bovell had really hit his stride with many of these rhythms laid down for the great dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson's Forces of Victory and Bass Culture LPs, and they're given just the right touch of tasty dub effects here. Nice horn lines float over thunderous bass & drum workouts, with 8 top notch numbers in all, including "Victorious Dub", "Iron Bar Dub", "Reality Dub", "Peach Dub", "Cultural Dub", "Brain Smashing Dub", "Bitch Dub" and "Shocking Dub".

Funky drums and romping organ coming together in a really wonderful way – almost like the kind of groove you'd get on one of those 60s albums by The Peddlers, but without any vocals at all! "Landings" is completely wonderful – and "Mule & Hummingbirds" follows in a very similar vibe – two very unique versions of the organ instrumental, both of which have us wanting a whole album from the group! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The second album from Third World – and the one that really helped break them out to the widespread success that they'd enjoy for years with their crisp, tight brand of modern reggae – fusing roots vibes with top notch production values and some rock and funk touches! Includes "1865 (96 Degrees In The Shade)", which was a massive hit for the group, an instantly recognizable harmony cut that laid the blueprint for the band's future. The rest of the album grooves along in a similar vein, with tight propulsive rhythms keeping proceedings fresh throughout!

✨✧ Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Mango/Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mini-LP, but one that packs more punch than most full length sets – thanks to a top-shelf lineup all the way through! The set's a project put together by Sly & Robbie, and recorded at Compass Point Studios – all with a groove that's kind of a dubbier take on the sound of New York dancefloors a the time – nicely bassy, slightly beaty, and topped with some really wonderful vocals from Gwen Guthrie! Larry Levan mixed the whole thing to perfection, giving it a real Paradise groove – and instrumentation is by Wally Badarou on synth, Harry Whitaker on keyboards, Darryl Thompson on guitars, and Jimmy Maelin on percussion. The set's kind of a mini-suite, based around a few key musical themes – and titles include "Padlock", "Hopscotch", "Seventh Heaven", "Peanut Butter" and "Getting Hot". CD also features 6 more bonus tracks – "Hopscotch (Larry Levan rmx inst)", "Getting Hot (original 12" version)", "Padlock (album mix of Portrait)", "Seventh Heaven (album mix of Portrait)", "Hopscotch (album mix of Portrait)", and "Peanut Butter (original 12" version)".

✨✧ Junior MurvinPolice & Thieves (180 gram blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mango/4 Men With Beards, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The all time classic from Junior Murvin – as essential as any late 70s reggae! Production-wise, Police And Thieves is among Scratch's finest moments, from the most monumental period in Perry's career, during the height of the Black Ark. The title track needs no introduction from us, and the rest of the record is solid, funky roots rock, at a level Murvin would not match again in his career. His sweet falsetto is draped in the dense, murky production that carved a niche in history for Perry. Tracks like "Roots Train" and "False Teaching" are the embodiment of crucial, and the album is filled with other great cuts like the now classic title track, "Rescue Jah Children", "Tedious", "Easy Task" and "I Was Appointed".

Mango/Cree (Germany), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A match made in reggae heaven – the sweet vocals of the great George Faith, and the legendary production talents of Lee Scratch Perry – coming together here in a record that's overflowing with soul! The Perry production is great – never too over the top, but with just enough around the edges to keep things interesting – and to keep the record from sounding a fair bit different than more commercial or mainstream work of the time. The whole thing was recorded at the Black Ark studios, with help from The Mighty Diamonds and Meditations on backing vocals – and some nice lead guitar lines from Ernest Ranglin. Titles include an extended take on George's biggest number, "To Be A Lover (Have Mercy)" – plus sublime soul covers like "Midnight Hour/Ya Ya", "I've Got The Groove", and "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" – and smoking originals like "Opportunity", "So Fine", and "All The Love I've Got".

Sarathy KorwarMore Arriving ... CD
Leaf (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A very different album than the previous effort from drummer/percussionist Saratha Korwar – a lot more political, as you might guess from the title – and a set that has the London musician working with performers from the hip hop scenes in Mumbai and New Delhi! Most of the tunes have a soaring, majestic quality – a similar blend of jazz and global elements that we've heard in Korwar's music – but the additional of lyrics on most numbers really transforms the whole thing, and uses Korwar's strong sonic sensibilities as the backdrop for some very powerful global messages! MCs include Trap Poju, MIrande, Zia Ahmed, Aditya Prakash, Deepak Unnikrishnan, MC Mawali, and Delhi Sultanate – and titles include "Mango", "City Of Words", "Bol", "Pravasis", "Good Ol Vilayati", "Coolie", and "Mumbay".

A collection of hard-to-find work by Monday Michiru – featuring mixes and covers that have been issued as singles in the past, and which fit together surprisingly well as a full LP! If you know Monday's work, you know that her singles often feature versions of tracks that are quite different than the LP versions – recrafted with the help of some of the best NuSoul producers and remixers, like Joe Claussell, Masters At Work, Shinchi Osaway, and Bluey, all of whom contribute work to this set. The package is great – and with a total of 11 tracks in all, it will save you a lot of time (and money) tracking down those expensive import 12" singles! The set's mixed together – but not strongly, so that all the songs are very much intact – and titles include "I Wanna Be Where You Are", "Lovin You (acoustic live version)", "Double Image (live at Manic One rmx)", "Chasing After The Sun (Banda Black Lero mix)", "Yellow Bird (Incognito Capoeira mix)", "Tomorrow's Sunrise (Murphy meets Titomaxx)", "Love Flow (Mango margarita mix)", "Mysteries Of Life (Ananda Project Black Tail dub)", and "Higher (higher dub)".

Ray Perez has a very sharp, tight combo here – one that can pull out a heavy bassline when needed, or hit the piano with a soul jazz flourish at other times – and the group have definitely inherited that Joe Cuba small combo mode that really set the Latin world on fire before the boogaloo came on! Rhythms include a few more South American-styled modes, but still handled with that soulful vibe – and titles include "El Nino Del Trombon", "Emae Mae", "El Mundo Esta Lleno", "Asi Mueren Los Valientes", "El Alacran", "Mango Maduro", and "Los Lios De Mis Suegros".

The ensemble's almost more compelling here than on some of their better-circulated sides from the 70s – as they really know what they're doing, where they're going, and what each of them can bring to the table – a familiarity that allows the group to shift modes easily without sounding like they're dropping the ball, in was that flesh out nicely, like some of Sun Ra's senior sides.

Peter Tosh joins a great lineup that includes Winston Barrett, Robbie Shakespear, Winston Wright, and other Jamaican instrumental giants – but it's definitely Bunny who holds the whole thing together with a spirit that's quite different than his famous previous partner, Bob Marley.

Dub Store (Japan), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from the years before reggae became the international sound of Jamaica – music from the island nation's jazz scene, which was at the crossroads of so many different styles of music – jazz from the north, Latin rhythms from Cuba and Puerto Rico, and a fair bit of other Caribbean sounds too – all of which filter through the wonderful collection of music on the set! The title breaks down the different genres featured – but there's often a surprisingly unified feel to the whole record too – one that stands partly as a testament to the musical strengths of all the performers involved! In the days before Trojan and Studio One, Federal Records was an important Jamaican label – and did an especially great job of capturing some of the sounds that were part of that nation's club culture and resorts in the 60s. Titles include "Angelima" and "Like Falling In Love" by Ernest Ranglin, "Profile Cha Cha" and "Rhumbina" by Cecil Lloyd & The Starline Troubadors, "Estrellita" and "I Love Paris" by The Lennie Hibbert Combo, "Tis Wonderful" by Eric Grant, "Linstead Market" by Baba Motta & Ernest Ranglin, "Wheel & Turn Me" by Bertie King, "Go Fife Go" by Count Owen, "Mango Walk" by Bertie King & Ernest Ranglin, "String Of Pearls" by Auldey Williams & His Orchestra, "Solas Market" by Baba Motta, and "Monday Monday" by Winston Turner Quintet.

The horn section still has a strong role – two saxes, one trombone – but there are also both instrumental and rhythmic shifts from track to track – so that in the former, a keyboard or guitar might stand out more in the lead – or in the latter, the groove changes from more familiar modes to really help expand their style, and also open up some of the jazzier currents in their all-instrumental approach! There's even some great ngoni at a few points, which really sounds wonderful - and titles include "Call Of The Bulbul Bird", "Thorns To Fruit", "Money Is The Curse", "sand To Soil", and "A Snake Is Just A String".

MachitoMachito At The Crescendo ... LP
GNP, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obscure west coast session by Machito – recorded at the Crescendo night club in LA , but done in the same hard style as Machito's groundbreaking New York sides of the time. Graciela sings vocals on a few cuts, and Machito and the trio sing on a few more – but the other half of the album is instrumental, and we actually like those titles more. Tunes include "Pachanga A La Crescendo", "Mangos", "Maggie's Mambo", "Cuban Fantasy", and "Bernie & The Wolf". The record's got some nice jazzy bits, with a good hard live feel that's a bit different from some of Machito's studio work. LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny RollinsSound Of Sonny ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good ... $149.99
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – a record that really lives up to its title, as it shows the maturing tenorist really finding his own voice in jazz – a sound that's unlike any other! Rollins' Riverside work sometimes seems to get overlooked sometimes in light of his freer late 50s playing on other labels – but this album's a real standout that shows that even with familiar material, Sonny can make magic happen in the way he phrases a tune and places a solo. Sonny's working here with a group that includes some hard-edged piano from Sonny Clark and some wonderfully inventive rhythm from Roy Haynes on drums – but Rollins is the real star in this quartet setting – shining throughout, in a mode that's incredibly economical, yet which speaks volumes with every note! Titles include "Mangoes", "Cutie", "Just In Time", and "Every Time We Say Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, RLP 12-241, with deep groove. Vinyl has a noisy spot at the beginning of Side 2. Cover has some aging, yellowed tape on the top seam & ink stamp on back. Label on Side 2 has a sticker.)

VariousRare Soul Harmony Of The 60's – The Sweeter Side ... CD
Goldmine (UK), 1960s/1998. Used ... $3.99
Great stuff! The folks at Goldmine always do a great job with their comps when they move away from the northern soul genre, and this one is no exception. The set compiles a stunning batch of 25 rare soul harmony tracks from the 60's, and they're all by obscure groups who only recorded 45s for independent labels. The quality of material is excellent, and if you like group soul sounds, this compilation is a must! All tracks are mellow, soulful, and beautiful – and titles include "I Need Your Love" by The Chandlers, "Did I Make A Mistake" by The Revlons, "How Was Your Weekend" by Bobby Mac, "You've Been Gone So Long" by The Tomangoes, "You Should Have Told Me" by The New Yorkers, "You Are" by The Executive Four, "I Want You To Be My Baby" by The Sound Masters, and lots lots more! Nice package, with dates for all the tracks, too. CD

✨✧ Kai WindingIncredible Kai Winding Trombones ... LP
Impulse, 1960. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's no mistake – both in its pluralization and its acclaim for Kai Winding – as the leader here is working with a brace of additional trombones, all in a groove that's one of his most fluid on record to date! The style builds nicely from the sound that Kai and JJ Johnson forged in the 50s – but it's served up here with a sound that's slightly more modern, filled with colors and tones that really deepen the sound of Winding's music! Other trombonists include Jimmy Knepper, Tony Studd, Paul Faulise, and Johnny Messner – playing differently pitched trombones – and rhythm players include Ron Carter on bass, Bill Evans on piano, and Al Beldini on drums – plus some guest conga by Olatunji. Titles include "Speak Low", "Love Walked In", "Mangos", "Michie", "Impulse", and "Black Coffee". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSoul Safari Presents Township Jive & Kwela Jazz Vol 3 ... CD
Ubuntu (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite volume so far in this excellent series – a set that focuses on early 60s work from South Africa, with a vibe that really showcases that great sound that would soon explode globally – as artists like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba got wider exposure! Yet the music here is hardly as commercial as sounds from those two – as the overall production and presentation is nice and rootsy – lively rhythms topped with jazzy instrumentation and these especially wonderful vocals that dip, turn, soar, and fly – all at a level that would become cliche in the world music boom decades later, but which still sounds beautiful here at the roots. All tracks were hand-picked from the archives of the International Library Of African Music – and titles include "Nylon" and "Intogeymy" by The Lower Buttons, "Seven Stiches" and "Rock Phata 1001" by Kid Ma Wrong Wrong, "Lulu Part 4" by Bra Sello, "Mangothobane" and "Wamuhle Lomfana" by Flying Jazz Queens, "Kudala Ngizula" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, and "Nice Time" by Que Sisters.
