GolemOrion Awakes ... CD
Acme/Lion, 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99
Early 70s space rock from Golem – epically paced, trippy, expertly done wigged out instrumental rock that was purportedly laid down by heavies from the soon-to-be legendary krautrock scene working pseudonymously after hours in the studio! The album's a bit of an enigma – a set that's become famous over the years for its quality, but shrouded in enough mystery that some have doubted its story – although overall, the music here feels like the best early 70s space rock on labels like Brain or Egg – with lots of layers of keyboards and guitars over building drums and basslines. Interestingly, the producer as credited as Genius P Orridge for Pyramid Records, strangely similar to another name, wouldn't ya say? Titles include "Orion Awakes", "Stellar Launch", "Godhead Dance", "Jupiter & Beyond", and "The Returning". CD

Gerard MansetLa Mort D' Orion ... CD
World Psychedelia, 1970. New Copy ... $3.99
Classically approached psychedelia from Gerard Manset – and odd, but beautiful blend of string heavy moods and more small scale moments of heavy percussion, keyboards and vocals – one multi part suite! The sounds move from grander string moments, to a more narrative storysong mode with lyrics in French, to proggier, echoey bits and groovier instrumentation – plus a sitar interlude! A strange, hugely innotative and ambitous piece of work! Includes "La Mort D'Orion", "Ou L'horizon Prend Fin", "Salomon L'Ermite", "Finale", "Vivent Les Homme", "Le Paradis" and "Elegie Funebre". CD

✨✧ Bert JanschJack Orion ... LP
Transatlantic/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A huge leap forward for the mighty Bert Jansch – and a record that's somehow even more amazing than the ones that came before! Bert's maybe even more introspective here, but also on a personal journey that takes him down musical paths that seem broader than before – almost echoing a wider range of influences on his guitar performance, yet in a way that still comes across with a uniquely pointed vibe. There's some occasional shift in the instrumentation, too – as Jansch plays banjo on the leadoff track, but with the same chilling currents as his sublime acoustic guitar – and John Renbourn joins on second guitar for a number of tracks, prefacing the pair's collaboration to come. And as with all of Jansch's genius material at this point, there's a quality that's both ancient and modern, timeless and uniquely tied to its moment – flowering beautifully on tunes that include "Jack Orion", "The Waggoner's Lad", "Nottamun Town", "Black Water Side", "Pretty Polly", and "The Gardner".

Bobby ChristianAll That Jazz ... LP
Orion, Early 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
Vibist/percussionist Bobby Christian leads a small combo through a tight run of tracks designed to provide a showcase for the choreography of jazz dance master Gus Giordano. The tracks have a very groovy sound, with a nice early 60's jazz feel that sounds like it was lifted from a crime soundtrack or a cop show. Percussion's nice and heavy, and tracks include "Yalcin Drums", "Staccato Drums", "Drums Galore", and "Man With the Golden Arm". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging.)

✨✧ Johnny FrigoCollected Works ... CD
Luv N' Haight/Ubiquity, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wealth of rare funky jazz dance tunes! This brilliant album collects obscure work recorded in Chicago by the combo of guitarist Johnny Frigo – tunes that were originally cut for instructional records by choreographer Gus Giordano, a groundbreaking talent whose work rivaled that of greats like Bob Fosse, but who was less well-known because he spent most of his time working out of Chicago. Fortunately for us, that obscurity gave Gus and Johnny the time to cut some killer records – all released on Gus' small Orion label, pressed up in only small batches, to be used for dance instruction. Given the hipness of Gus' dance techniques, you can imagine how great the grooves are – and Frigo's combo really cuts it up with a mixture of mod 60s grooves, 70s soul jazz, and just the right amount of guitar-driven funk! The package is the first time most of these tunes have been widely available outside the dance community – and it's lovingly put together, with great sound, and a good set of notes. Titles include "The Happening", "Appollo", "Eye Of The Needle", "Them Changes", "Funky 42", "Dance Of Love", "Garden Of The Moon", "The Arabian", "Do Whatever Sets You Free", "Walk From Reggios", and Johnny's great version of "Scorpio"!

✨✧ Dizzy GillespiePerceptions ... CD
Verve/Universal (Italy), 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A swirling array of tones, colors, and sounds – written and arranged by JJ Johnson, conducted by Gunther Schuller, and with Dizzy at the helm, blowing some of his most complicated solos ever. The approach is firmly in the Verve jazz orchestra tradition – and recalls the earlier brilliance of such projects in the hands of Ralph Burns, done here with a great depth of expression, and none of the coldness that you might expect from Schuller's participation. Clearly, there's a Miles/Gil Evans influence here, but the crew retains their identity strongly – and Dizzy's hot tone on the trumpet provides a broder spectrum than Miles ever could. Titles include "Fantasia", "Ballade", "Jubelo", and "The Sword Of Orion". CD

✨✧ Saucy LadySupanova (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Star Creature, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Cosmic club grooves on Star Creature from Saucy Lady! Supanova delivers on the space disco promised by the comic book style cover art, but goes beyond that too, with some nice nods to spacey 70s fusion, some great cosmic keyboards, b-boy funk beats courtesy of J-Zone, sax by Tomoki Sanders (the son of Pharoah Sanders) and other diverse touches. None of that overshadows Saucy Lady's voice though, as she gives this a soulful depth, even some jazzy passage when the mood calls for it. Titles include "Lift Off", "You're Special", "Orion-Tation", "Rocket Science", "Calling Jupiter", "Alien Nation", "Litter Of Moon Kittens", "Orbit" and "Universal Vision". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Matthew ShippAo Vivo Na Jazz Na Fabrica ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully bold solo work from Matthew Shipp – recorded here solo, in Brazil – with a freely-flowing sound that's a great reminder of his organic genius at its best! There are times when Shipp can sometimes be a bit too cold or academic, but that's definitely not the case here – as he bursts forward with this very human, very personal approach to the piano – effortlessly covering a fantastic amount of territory on the keyboard, always with a strong sense of freedom, but with a cohesive sound that always has its own sort of inherent logic too. One of his best in recent years – with titles that include "Whole Movement", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Symbol Systems", "Patmos", "Blues In Orion", and "Gamma Ray". CD

✨✧ Oki KimCherubim's Wrath (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Beatball (Korea), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Extremely compelling work from Korean saxophonist Oki Kim – a set that's got a different vibe at every little twist and turn – with an amazing range of sounds created by a small number of familiar instruments! There's definitely some free jazz passages on the set, but other tunes are more structured – and there's even some oddly rhythmic numbers that fold together the bass, drums, and piano in ways that we've never heard before. Kim plays saxes – and the set also features Bae Jihoon on piano, Kim Sungbae on bass, and Seo Kyungsoo on drums – and singer Aya Iseki joins the group on one track. Titles include "Orion Star House", "False Freedom", "Heart", "A Dwarf Launches A Little Ball", "Conspiracy", and "The Blade Of A Knife". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition!)
