MiragePrinces Of Love ... LP
RCA, 1978. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A fantastic bit of lost harmony soul from RCA – an obscure gem from the late 70s, but one that's recorded with a sweet early 70s group soul sound! The harmonies are wonderful throughout – sincere, honest, and with the right sort of fragile touches to make us fall in love with the record immediately – and the arrangements on the set (handled by GT Conway) really fit the mellow mood of the set, and really conjure up the perfect late nite and mellow mode to keep the set held together nicely! The whole thing's great, and tracks include "Romeo", "There Is Love For Everyone", "I Found Time For Love", "Just a Phone Call Away", "To Stop Loving You", and "It's All In the Way".

Art BlakeyMirage ... LP
Savoy, 1957. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
During the late 50s – after an initial burst of recordings with Blue Note, and before a later successful run for the label – Art Blakey recorded on a number of labels with a lesser-known version of The Jazz Messengers. This album's from that stretch – and it's actually a pretty darn nice batch of tracks, even if it lacks some of the polished tightness of the later Blue Notes. The group features Bill Hardman on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, and Sam Dockery on piano – and the set's a loose batch of hardbop numbers like "Casino", "Ugh!", "Mirage", and "Reflections Of Buhania". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing, in the original die-cut cover.)

✨✧ Itaru OkiMirage (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A bold statement of modern jazz from Japanese trumpeter Itaru Oki – a record that certainly has freedoms, but which might also benefit most strongly from its sense of structure! There's almost a 60s "thing thing" vibe here at times – or maybe a quality that reminds us of the best work from Tomas Stanko and Krysztof Komeda – given that way that Oki's instrument interacts with the piano of Takashi Kako, who's got the same balance of boldness and introspection as the leader. Percussion is by Masahiko Togashi, and titles include "Sky Zou", "Mirage", "Silken Rain On Lotus Blossom", and "Pit Out". CD
(Part of the Nippon Jazz Spirits series!)

Jean CarneCloser Than Close ... LP
Mirage/Omni, 1986. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Quite a different sound than Jean's Philly International recordings – although certainly a logical extension – and it's a sweeter than sweet set from the mid 80s that in turns both celebrates and transcends the production style of the era! Overall, Closer Than Close is a smooth batch of mellow modern soul, almost in a Phyllis Hyman mode, and with less of the free easy jazz touches of Jean's earlier recordings. Grover Washington produced most of the record, an he really does add a bit of jazz into the mix – but the standout element is Jean's vocals, which seem to have expanded their range along with the addition of the "e" to her last name! Titles include "Lucky Charm", "Closer than Close", "Everything Must Change", "Sexy Eyes", "It Must Be Love", and a solid remake of "Break Up To Make Up". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a short click on "Anything For Money".)

✨✧ Rubens BassiniRitmo Fantastico ... CD
Pawal/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021
Fantastic rhythms from percussionist Rubens Bassini – a set that has all the raw live energy of a Latin jazz jam session, but which also carries some of the sweet touches of the bossa nova scene in Brazil – a really wonderful mixing of modes that makes the album a gem all the way through! Rubens plays with the fire you'd expect from his image on the cover – bringing a lot more lively percussion to the record than usual for a Brazilian jazz set of the time – while the larger backings shade things in on some sweet colors – with a nice mix of piano, woodwinds, and some especially great vibes! The record's an excellent jammer that takes a bossa nova groove, and infuses it with some heavier Afro-Cuban rhythms – creating a jazzy style stuffed with infectious changes – on titles that include "Coco Seco", "Barquinho", "Cuban Mambo", "Mirage", "Maria Conga", "Mensagem", "Love For Sale", "Quem Quiser", and "Ceu E Mar". Great stuff all around – recorded in Brazil in 1960, and with not a dead track on the album! CD
This title is scheduled for release about Wednesday, July 21.

Ian Carr & Don RendellChange Is ... CD
BGO (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A fitting title – for a great album! Change Is marks a real turning point in the career of the Ian Carr/Don Rendell team – as the pair seem to go out even farther than before, leaving behind some of the straighter rhythms of earlier sets, to explore a realm of looser time and space. The ensemble still has a soulful undercurrent that keeps things compelling – even when the overall style gets a bit out – and thanks to strong horn work from the leaders, plus lyrical work on piano and harpsichord by Michael Garrick, the album's every bit as great as earlier classics like Dusk Fire or Shades of Blue. Garrick contributed 2 great tunes to the album – "Black Hair" and "Cold Mountain" – and other titles include "Elastic Dream", "One Green Eye", and "Mirage". CD

Frank FosterHere & Now ... LP
Catalyst, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Very different work than usual from Frank Foster – and pretty darn great! The album was put together by arranger Billy Mitchell – with a warm and sunny take on soul jazz that's every bit the best side of the Catalyst Records sound – kind of a sweeter, slightly electric take on the genre that's different from the styles going down at some of the other indies during the other part of the decade. Foster's tone is in full force here – but his overall playing is reigned in a bit from his more frenetic recordings with Elvin Jones – a good thing by us, as the record allows him to explore sound in much different ways. The rest of the group is equally great – with players that include Art Webb on flute, Harold Mabern on piano, Roland Prince on guitar, Freddie Waits on drums, and Richard Williams on trumpet. Tunes have an arranged feel that's got some slight sweetness to it – but they're also long, and with plenty of room for solos. Titles include "Shunga", "Sweet Mirage", "Square Knights Of The Round Table", and "Been Here & Gone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original gatefold pressing. Cover has a small gouge in the spine and minimal surface wear.)

✨✧ Iron ButterflyIn-A-Gadda-Da-Vida ... LP
Atco, 1968. Near Mint- ... $14.99
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years later! "In A Gadda Da Vida" was shortened to a single – with the big hook intact – but this classic album version runs for 17 minutes in length, and has the group doing all these cool jams with their instruments – all the animals in the garden of Eden talking to each other (or at least that's what our addled teenaged minds always thought!) Shorter tracks are mighty nice too – a heady, heavy brew of Hammond and fierce guitar from Erik Brann, on cuts all penned by group leader Doug Ingle. Titles include "Termination", "My Mirage", "Flowers & Roses", and "Most Anything You Want". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has light waviness on the opening and a trace of a sticker.)

✨✧ Leon's CreationThis Is The Beginning ... LP
Studio 10/Acid Jazz (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 27.99
A rare album of funky soul from the Bay Area scene at the start of the 70s – and a set that's every bit as righteous as you might expect from the cover! The group's the creation of singer/keyboardist/arranger Leon Pattillo – hence the name – and you might know Leon from his later famous work in the 70s – including a stint with Santana, and loads of great work with other soul artists. But here, he's a young genius working in the freest, funkiest style of the San Francisco generation – with a vibe that's maybe a more spiritual take on territory explored by Sly & The Family Stone – with an earthier, more indie vibe overall. The group has great interplay – tight instrumentation, but never slick, and with some nice long-haired currents – and vocals are by Leon and a female singer – on titles that include "Confusion", "If I Had The Power", "Sightless", "Back Roads", "This Is The Beginning", and "Mirage".

✨✧ Jean Luc PontyLive ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The mighty Jean Luc Ponty in all his 70s glory – taking the violin from the realm of more staid European jazz roots, and using it to rival some of the bigger fusion soloists of the decade! Ponty's key here is the way he uses the electrified instrument almost like a keyboard – spinning out these nicely-building waves of sound that can also alternate with more dynamic solo moments too – supported here by a sweet electric group that features Joaquin Lievano and Jamie Glaser on guitars, Allan Zavod on keyboards, and Ralphe Armstrong on bass. Tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Aurora (parts 1 & 2)", "Imaginary Voyage (parts 3 & 4)", "Mirage", "No Strings Attached", and "Egocentric Molecules". CD

Sahib Shihab & Jef GilsonSahib Shihab + Gilson Unit – La Marche Dans Le Desert ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An amazing meeting of two of the most revolutionary talents on the European jazz scene of the early 70s – American expat Sahib Shihab, blowing some of his most exotic reeds ever – and pianist Jef Gilson, working here on electric keys and ondioline! The album's got a sound that echoes some of Gilson's most creative world/jazz experiments – a feel that definitely lives up to the desert march of the title, and which comes across with a loose, freewheeling sound that's almost in the territory of Sun Ra or Salah Ragab! Shihab plays baritone sax and Varitone soprano, and other group members include Bruno Di Gioia on flute, balafon, and bongos; Pierre Moret on Hohner organ, percussion, and ondioline; Maurice Bouhana on flute and percussion; and Jean-Claude Pourtier on whistle and percussion. Titles include the extended "Mirage (parts 1 & 2)" – plus "Les Touches Noires" and "La Marche Dans Le Desert". LP, Vinyl record album

Kebekelektric disco work from this spacey Canadian project – Quebec's answer to the electronics of the German scene! The group have a great sound that mixes Kraftwerk-like keys and synth with the livelier disco grooves of the Prelude Records scene – going for a mix of uptempo styles that's all instrumental, and which really lets the keyboards do some wonderful work! The set features the group's stunning classic "Magic Fly", plus "Mirage", "War Dance", and a great version of "Bolero". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MonophonicsIn Your Brain ... LP
Ubiquity, 2012. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The Monophonics definitely have a way of getting inside your brain – using a cosmic slop of fuzzy guitars and funky basslines to eat away your grey matter more than a maggot inside your cranium! Yet even past that heavy Funkadelic reference, they've also got a richer vibe too – elements of 60s psych mixed in with their funk – particularly in the way that the younger generation's been re-digging crates from the early 70s these days – especially some of the more farther-flung tracks from the global underground. There's slight Afro elements at times, garagey bits at others, and even some well-timed rhythms that help the whole thing have a good sense of focus – and save it from the overindulgence that toppled the hippie generation before they even got started. Titles include "Mirage", "Bang Bang", "Temptation", "In Your Brain", "Sure Is Funky", "There's A Riot Going On", "Say You Love Me", "They Don't Understand", and "Thinking Black".

✨✧ VariousMore Long Lost Honkers & Twangers – Rare 60s Instrumentals ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Searing instrumentals from the glory days of the electric guitar – that initial moment when the fuzz was turned up, the echo expanded, and the instrument finally got a chance to step out in the lead in the kind of totally wonderful tracks like these! The Ventures are pictured on the cover, but most of the music is from an underground much deeper than that group – tracks delivered with a fair bit of darkness, often pulled from rare singles, and included here with 14 previously-unissued tracks! Many of these numbers are maybe more in a legacy of Link Wray than some of the cleaner surf rock groups of the time – and as always with Ace, the presentation, notes, and sound are superb. Titles include "Wolf Pack" by The Mus Twangs, "Mirage" by The Night Caps, "Diamond Back" by Cecil Moore & The Notes, "Red Wing" by The Carnations, "Zombie Surfer" by The Ramrods, "Swing The Mess Around" by Mike Gordon & The Agates, "Harlem Nocturne" by The Music City Swingers, "Peace Pipe" by The Marksmen, "Russian Roulette" by The Zanies, "Blue Money" by The Ventures, and "Guitare Jet" by Les Jaguars.

✨✧ Beth CarvalhoPra Seu Governo ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021
A real 70s gem from the legendary Beth Carvalo – a samba singer with a sound that's always stronger than we'd guess from the cover! Beth has this real depth to her vocals that grabs us right away – a soulful quality that comes through especially well in this setting – as Carvalho mostly gets raw percussion and guitar in the backings – not much else in the way of arrangements or production, which leaves the lady right out front with the kind of glorious presence you might guess from her image on the cover! A real gem – and a record that's far more powerful than some of Carvalho's later work – with titles that include "Agora E Portela 74", "Miragem", "1800 Colinas", "A Pedida E Essa", "Tesoura Cega", and "Fim De Sofrimento". CD
This title is scheduled for release about Wednesday, July 21.
