✨✧ Enzo Scoppa & Cicci SantucciMirage ... LP
New Tape/Sonor (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from a duo who were one of the strongest instrumental forces on the Italian sound library scene – trumpeter Cicci Santucci and saxophonist Enzo Scoppa – both musicians with a strong legacy in jazz as well! Those jazz chops certainly come to light here – on a sweet set of instrumentals that really show the color of the duo's style – often upbeat and groovy, with wonderfully bright tones that come from the horns, and the really cool keyboards throughout the set – which include a fair bit of organ lines that feel like they were lifted from classic Italian soundtracks! When piano is used, it's often nice and echoey – and when flute comes into the mix, it's got a great compressed sound that's pretty unique too – and titles include "Guanabara", "Raggio Zero", "Mirelle", "Attica", "Hot Pants", "Tenerife", "Isabelle", "Ustica", and "Eleven". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

IngramWould You Like To Fly (with bonus track) ... CD
Mirage/FTG (France), 1983. Used ... $8.99
A wicked 80s groove from the mighty Ingram Family! Ingram were one of those groups that actually got better as they got slicker – and by the time of this 1983 release, Butch, James, and William Ingram had had more than enough experience working together and with other artists to really forge a strong sophisticated soul sound. The record's a lot better than many of its group-soul contemporaries' – and it's more of an extension of a 70s harmony group style than it is a throwaway 80s group funk album. The songwriting's a notch above what you'd expect – and the overall soul component is very high. Titles include "Share A Dream", "No One", "Smoothin Groovin", "Spoken Words", and "Groovin On A Groove". CD features the bonus track "Mi Sabrina Tequana". CD

✨✧ SystemYou Are In My System/Now I Am Electric ... 12-inch
Mirage, 1982. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great bit of crossover dancefloor – and the one standout hit from The System! "In My System" has a groove that's electric and soulful at the same time – nicely percolated and a bit compressed – served up with a hook that won't quit! "Now I Am Electric" is a bit more frenetic – certainly electric in beats and keys, and with lots of vocoder bits! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Art BlakeyArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (Savoy) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Savoy (Japan), 1957. Used ... $24.99
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 like others from the period it's a darn nice batch of tracks, and while it lacks some of the polished tightness of the later Blue Notes it crackles with the energy that's been the Jazz Messengers trademark from day one. 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", "The Biddie Griddies", "Potpourri" and "Reflections Of Buhania".

Frank FosterHere & Now ... LP
Catalyst, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
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

Iron ButterflyIn-A-Gadda-Da-Vida ... LP
Atco, 1968. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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 pressing.)

Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $34.99
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, Jones had already had a decade under his belt as one of the hippest arrangers, leaders, and composers in jazz – and the film business really respected those talents, and allowed Quincy to bring some really fresh styles into play – modes that really opened up the vibe of American cinema, and also paved the way for the funky styles of the 70s! As that decade approached, Jones left behind the cinema to take on some more higher-profile records of his own – but all the charms of those great albums can be found here at their roots – in this stunning collection of soundtrack material, some of which has never been on CD. The package is way more than just a sampler – and includes an album's worth of material from the films The Pawnbroker, Slender Thread, Mirage, The Deadly Affair, In The Heat Of The Night, In Cold Blood, Walk Don't Run, The Italian Job, Lost Man, and John & Mary – plus two versions of the love theme from The Getaway, and a bonus CD with 18 tracks – titled Q's highlights, and featuring tracks from his Mercury records – plus more by Billy Preston, Arthur Prysock, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, Letta Mbulu, Toots Thielemans, and others. Even features the "Sanford & Son" and "Ironside" themes! CD

✨✧ Shigeharu MukaiPleasure (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1980. Used ... $34.99
A wonderful fusion set from this great trombonist – filled with all the soul of his earlier years, but expanded by some electric help from an American lineup! The album shows Shigeharu Mukai as one of the most expressive players in this unique Japan/US fusion moment – working as a strong leader and soloist amidst talents who include Warren Bernhardt and Jorge Dalto on keyboards, Ed Walsh on keyboards, Nana Vasconcelos on percussion, and Steve Gadd on drums. The rhythms are great – never overdone, and balanced in just the right sort of way – and guitarist Ryo Kawasaki is also on the session, which has the same sort of flavor as his own best records of the period. Titles include "Mirage", "Wind Bells", "Dragon Fanatic", "Hudson Breeze", and "From The Lonely Afternoon". CD

David SanchezCarib ... LP
Melaza/Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
David Sanchez kicks off the album's liner notes with a great discussion on the African diaspora and its influence on music – one that's always been strongly felt in David's recordings, but which seems to come through even more strongly here! The record's definitely jazz, but borrows lots of rhythmic conceptions from around the globe – using a fair bit of percussion at the bottom of the sound, which is balanced nicely with strong, soulful tenor lines from Sanchez, waves of color on the guitar from Lage Lund, and a mix of piano and Fender Rhodes from Luis Perdomo! There's some especially great interplay between the angularity of the tenor and the warmer, rounder currents of the guitar – on titles that include "Madigra", "Wave Under Silk", "Mirage", "Fernando's Theme", "Canto", "Land Of The Hills", and "Iwa".

WildflowerSeason 2 ... LP
Ill Considered (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99
An amazing group, sounding even better here on their second album than they did the first time around – which is quite an achievement, as we really loved that record from this mighty trio! The group's an offshoot from the Ill Considered combo – and they've got an approach that's similar to that group, but maybe even more modal and spiritual overall – tremendous bass from Leon Brichard, tight drums from Tom Skinner, and searing reed solos from Idris Rahman – who blows tenor, flute, and clarinet over the long grooves laid down by the bass and drums! Rhythm is at the core of every track, and there's energy that flows right from the original inspiration of Coltrane's early 60s groove – but Rahman's solos are very distinct, and add a hell of a lot to the already great sound of the group. Titles include "Light In The Sorrow", "Distant Thunder", "Fire", "Mirage", "Under The Night Sky", and "Where The Wild Things Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMore Long Lost Honkers & Twangers – Rare 60s Instrumentals ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 22.99
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.

Blue Note (Japan), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rarest of all of Art Blakey's percussion group projects – and quite possibly the best, too! The session features Blakey at the head of a strong mix of jazz and percussion players – with Art Taylor and Philly Joe Jones on the regular drum kit, Donald Byrd on trumpet and Ray Bryant on piano, and a host of assorted percussion work by the likes of Ray Barretto, Sabu Martinez, Victor Gonzalez, Julio Martinez, and others. The resultant sound is incredible – very full, rich, and earthy – and done in a way that interweaves African and Latin percussion styles with straighter American jazz! A few cuts have chanting by Blakey and Sabu – and titles on this first volume include "The Feast", "Mirage", "Lamento Africano", and "Aghano". CD

✨✧ VariousBackstreet Brit Funk Vol 1 – The UK's Finest Underground Soul, Jazz Funk, & Disco Compiled By Joey Negro ... CD
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great look at an under-discovered scene, at least on our side of the Atlantic – the wealth of club and funk tracks from the UK scene at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – served up here by the great Joey Negro, who's given us more than a few great grooves of his own over the years! The sounds here are in more obscure territory than the earliest work by Incognito, but come from a similar vein – a real love of the best styles of American soul, funk, and club of the 70s – but served up in modes that are sometimes more underground, given the smaller circulation, and different cultural makeup of the British scene. A few grooves have some great electro touches, others have warmer jazzier instrumentation – and titles include "Summer Grooves" by Mirage, "Keep In Touch" by Freeez, "Trip To Your Mind" by Hudson People, "The Wiggle" by Stikki Stuff, "Zero One" by Surface Noise, "Sore Lip" by Ritual "Express" by 52nd Street, "Parisienne Girl" by Incognito, "Latin Dream" by The Antilles, "Bentley Boogie" by Ed Bentley, "I Wanna Dance" by The Cool Notes, "You Know Too Much" by MBT, "You Don't Care About Our Love (Joey Negro edit)" by China Burton, "No Secret Affair" by Style X, "Never Let You Go" by Savanna, "Orange Groves" by Ranson McKenzie & Friends, and "Better Things To Come (Joey Negro edit)" by Nigel Martinez.

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Willie RuffSmooth Side Of Ruff ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An excellent solo outing from Willie Ruff – one half of the Mitchell-Ruff duo – but not really a "solo" outing, per se, as Ruff's leading quite a large group on the set, with a very different sound than his other albums with Dwike Mitchell! The mode is soundtrack jazz with a touch of the groovy – inspired by a bit of exposure to Braziliana on the part of Ruff, one that makes itself known in the album's lightly dancing rhythms and occasional bossa orchestral moments. Titles include "Mirage Blanc", "Sheffield Blues", "Recado", "Snowfall", "Soundboard", "Casino Royale", and "Jet Set Gypsy". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzman (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally great little set from Sign Of Four – a project of Miles Newbold from the Natural Yogurt Band – served up with an approach to exotic jazz funk that's even trippier than his previous work! Miles plays a load of live instruments here – vibes, flute, guitar, percussion, and keyboards – all sifted and filtered together with some cool studio work to sound very vintage, and very offbeat – like some weird Eastern take on American soul jazz of the 60s, or like a garage band trying their best to sound like Sun Ra! The music is some of the best new work we've ever heard on the Jazzman label – and really feels a lot more like some lost exotic record from years back – with titles that include "Samba Moderno", "Morocco", "Topsy Turvy", "Mirage", "Morphine", "Fruit Juice For Everyone", and "Sun Suite Humulus Lupulus". 11 tracks on the CD.
