VariousCold War Countdown – Country Music Goes To War 1952 to 1972 ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 19.99
A fantastic collection of offbeat country music songs from the postwar years – tunes that begin during the Korean War, end during Vietnam, and embrace a lot of Cold War anxiety in between! As with other titles from this great label – like the Hillbillies In Hell series – there's a great theme at the core, with so many different varieties of songs that we're amazed at how much the compilers were able to dig up! You'll probably recognize a few of these, but most of the tunes are from a pretty deep dig – and even longtime country freaks like ourselves are hearing most of these for the first time. Titles include "Freedom Monkey" by Doc Williams, "Bearded Bandit Of Cuba" by Art & Glenda Davis, "Fallout" by Red Castle, "Ballad Of Two Brothers" by Autry Inman, "Little Boy Soldier" by Wanda Jackson, "Crazy Vietnam War" by Stringbean, "Congratulations" by Arlene Harden, "The Patriot" by Marie Roberson, "The Craziest War Of The Universe" by Jefferson County Bluegrass Boys, and "I'm No Communist" by Grandpa Jones.

VariousFunk Revival – Sounds From The Subtropics ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
Incredible funk from the Miami scene – most of it done with heavily Cuban roots! The tracks here are mostly from the wonderful Sound Triangle label – a tiny Florida imprint that focused on capturing sounds that were neither funk nor soul, jazz nor Latin – but a unique hybrid of all their best elements – brought to Florida by ex-patriot Cubans, and simmered down into a wicked new blend! There's a sharpness here that's really wonderful – a heavily percussive quality on most numbers that rivals the best funky 45s from up north at the time – but which also has plenty of Latin touches too, as you'd hear on some of the most soulful sides from Fania, or the growing Chicano scene in LA. A few of the names here are familiar from important reissues over the years, but the set's also overflowing with a lot more lesser-known gems as well – a whole new territory in funky music, with tremendous tracks all the way through! Titles include "Abacua" by Manteca, "No Quiero Que Te Vayas" by Signs Of The Zodiac, "La Inflacion De Ofelia" by Oscar Pena, "Soul Freedom" by Ray & His Court, "Bun Bun Bun" by Coke, "Jungle Walk" by Pearly Queen, "Make Your Move" by Wild Wind, "Keep On Bumpin" by Clockwork, "Borriquito" by Peter Fernandez, "Fantasy Of Love" by Mantrap, "Quit Jivin" by Pearly Queen, "Nana" by Coke, "Los Feligreses" by Luis Santi, "Algo Sabroso" by Nelson Padron, "Watermelon Man" by Pepe Delgado, and "De Eso Nada Monado" by Ray & His Court.

✨✧ Art BlakeyParis Jam Session – Jazz In Paris ... CD
Fontana (France), 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic live set from Art Blakey – recorded in Paris in 1960, with a version of the Jazz Messengers that includes Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Walter Davis Jr on piano, and Jymie Merritt on bass! Best of all, though, is that the group is joined by two Paris jazz giants on two tracks – the great saxophonist Barney Wilen on tenor, and American ex-patriot Bud Powell – who was doing some of his best work in Paris at the time, and sits in on the keys instead of Davis. Wilen's incredible tone sounds great next to Shorter's horn – and all the tracks are long enough to give all soloists plenty of room to move around. Titles include "The Midget", "Bouncing With Bud", and "Dance of The Infidels". CD

✨✧ DublinersDubliners/In Concert/Finnegan Wakes/In Person/Mainly Blarney/More Of The Dubliners (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), 1964/1965/1966. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Really fantastic work from The Dubliners– a flurry of mid 60s albums and EP recordings for the Transatlantic label – all of it some of the best Irish-styled folk of its time! In a period where so many folkies were cleaning things up for the masses, The Dubliners brought forth the real side of traditional Irish music – always with a kind of grit that makes their music sound a lot more like the sound of a backroom in a tavern in the wee hours of the night – instead of some groovy hootenanny sing-a-long at Carnegie Hall! The Pogues always cited these guys as an important influence, and after hearing just a few songs, you can hear why – and the sound of the music just gets better and better the more you dig into the set. 53 tracks on 2CDs – with titles that include "McAlpine's Fusiliers", "Willie Gannon", "The Sea Around Us", "Finnegan's Wake", "Nelson's Farewell", "Jar Of Porter", "I'll Tell My Ma", "The Leaving Of Liverpool", "The Patriot Game", "The Woman From Wexford", "Boulavogue", "The Cook In The Kitchen", "Master McGrath", and lots lots more.

✨✧ VariousJamaica To Toronto – Soul, Funk, & Reggae 1967 to 1974 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A mindblowing musical discovery – funky music made in Canada by ex-patriot Jamaicans – easily some of the most obscure post-colonial grooves we've ever dug! The sound here is a lot less reggae-based than you'd expect – as most of the tunes are in a really nitty gritty funky 45 sort of mode – filled with strong influences from American soul of the late 60s and early 70s, but often done with a style that's a bit dirtier and fuzzier, especially at the bottom of the rhythms. There's a few traces of Jamaican production styles on the records, but overall the album's more like finding a lost stash of rare 45s from some smaller American funk scene – all work that's totally darn fresh, and beautifully presented here in a lavish booklet filled with enough notes and vintage images to rival the work coming out of the Numero camp of late! Great stuff all around, with titles that include "Chips Chicken Banana Split" and "Fugitive Song" by Jo Jo & The Fugitives, "Eternal Love" by The Sheiks, "Memories" by Noel Ellis, "Right On" and "I Wish It Would Rain" by The Cougars, "Grand Funk" by Jackie Mittoo, "Love Is The Answer" by Ram, "You're So Good To Me Baby" by Eddie Spencer, "Mr Fortune" by The Hitch-Hikers with Mighty Pope, "Fire (She Need Water)" by Wayne McGhie & The Sounds Of Joy, and "I Believe In Music" by Bob & Wisdom.

Joseph ByrdYankee Transcendoodle – Electronic Fantasies For Patriotic Synthesizer ... LP
Takoma, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
As the notes say, "this album is a series of aural and spatial fantasies evoking the spirit of American patriotic music" – and the whole thing's recorded on electronic keyboards. Given that this one's on Takoma, you can guess the kind of hippy-dippy folksist influence it might have, which gives the electronic music tracks an even weirder edge. Maybe this is the kind of thing that Ives might have recorded, had he been alive in the 60s! With work by Byrd himself, plus Sousa, Cohan, and others. LP, Vinyl record album

Carla BleyEuropean Tour 1977 ... LP
Watt, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Carla Bley at the height of her powers – working in the late 70s to really reinvent the large ensemble after years of experience in the underground – with a style that easily slides between inside and out, searching and swinging – all delivered by just the right sort of lineup! The group here features Michael Mantler on trumpet, Elton Dean on alto, Gary Windo on tenor, John Clark on French Horn, Roswell Rudd on trombone, Hugh Hopper on bass, Andrew Cyrille on drums, and Carla herself on organ and tenor – all musicians graced with a sense of whimsy, yet never one that overwhelms their music at all – especially during this stretch of Carla's creative career. Tracks are long, and nice and complicated – but never get lost in themselves – and titles include "Rose & Sad Song", "Wrong Key Donkey", "Drinking Music", and "Star Spangled Banner Minor & Other Patriotic Songs".

Kenny Clarke, Bud Powell, Jimmy Woode, & OthersAmericans In Europe Vol 1 ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
If you read these pages often enough, you'll know that we're big fans of recordings made by American expatriot players while living in Europe during the 60's. The European rhythm sections often bring out new elements of their playing, and the interaction with European soloists hits modes that we sometimes don't hear on American recordings by the same artists. This series of live recordings from Germany in 1963 brings together an array of players that includes Kenny Clarke, Bud Powell, Jimmy Woode, Lou Bennett, Jimmy Gourley, Joe Harris, and Herb Geller. The record's got a nice organ version of Horace Silver's "No Smokin", plus 2 Bill Smith originals ("Freeway" and "Pyramid"), and a haunting version of "Round Midnight" with Bud Powell and trio.

Johnny LetmanFunky Day In Paris ... LP
Black & Blue (France), 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the best soul jazz sides on the Black & Blue label – a great late 60s session from trumpeter Johnny Letman – one of a number of older American ex-patriots in Paris! Although Letman worked with Horace Henderson, Basie, and Cab Calloway, he really didn't make many recordings as a leader – but he really shines on this laidback session – blowing in a mellow and open-ended way that reminds us of some of the Prestige/Swingville sides of the early 60s. The group here includes Hal Singer on tenor, Tiny Grimes on guitar, and Milt Bucker on piano and organ – and titles include "Funky Day In Paris", "Po Man's Blues", and "On A Persian Market".

✨✧ Jackie McLeanIt's Time! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... On August 28, 2020
It certainly was time – time for Jackie McLean to break out of his older bop mode, and hit a whole new level of playing with a tight group of "new thing" compatriots like Herbie Hancock on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Charles Tolliver on trumpet! The record isn't as totally "out there" as some of his other ones from this period, but it's a seminal release in Jackie's modernist period – and it's one of the hardest to find from the era. Filled with warmly wonderful original compositions like "Revillot", "Snuff", "Truth", and "Das Dat" – the record is unpacked and remodeled nicely by the trio of young players, aided by Jackie's moody alto, and given a great spin by Roy Haynes on drums. Striking cover, too – with a huge field of exclamation points! LP, Vinyl record album

Louis MoholoSpirits Rejoice ... LP
Ogun/OTOroku (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the strongest 70s statements from ex-Blue Notes drummer Louis Moholo – recorded in the company of fellow expatriots and UK avant jazzers that include Johnny Dyani, Evan Parker, Kenny Wheeler, Nick Evans, Radu Malfatti, and Harry Miller. The album shifts easily between strongly rhythmic passages that show Moholo's roots in the South African jazz scene, and other, freer sections that also illustrate his importance in the European avant scene of the 70s – and overall, the record's got a beautifully soulful quality that guides it well through all of these moments. Titles include "Wedding Hymn", "Khanya Apho Ukhona", "Ithi Gqi", "Amaxesha Osizi", and "You Ain't Gonna Know Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don Byas/Bud PowellTribute To Cannonball ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a session from the European expatriot scene of the postwar years – not really a tribute to Cannonball Adderley, but a rare meeting of Bud Powell and Don Byas in the studio, produced by Cannonball in Paris in 1961! The record has a tremendous amount of fire and focus – especially on the part of Powell, who could sometimes falter in a European setting – and although Byas' horn might seem a contrasting choice for Bud, he really burns with a lot of energy here – arcing, soaring, and turning with lines that show that his talents hadn't dimmed at all out of the American limelight. As always with his few productions from the time, Cannonball shows a great deal of sensitivity and patience with the players – probably a key factor of the success of the set. Also noteworthy is the rest of the group – which includes Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Titles include "Jeannine", "Just One Of Those Things", "All The Things You Are", "I Remember Clifford", and "Jackie My Little Cat". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milt JacksonBags & Flutes ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent late 50s work by Milt Jackson for Atlantic! Bags & Flutes is very much in the style of Milt's classic Savoy sides from the preceding couple of years – mixing together his jazzy vibes with light lilting solos on flute, either by Bobby Jaspar or Frank Wess, Milt's old compatriot from the Savoy sessions. Piano is by Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones, and Kenny Burrell plays guitar on the whole album. Tracks include "Ghana", "Connie's Blues", "Sandy", "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" and "Bag's New Groove". CD

✨✧ Jimmy SmithI'm Movin' On ... CD
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little trio session – one of Jimmy's hippest, featuring Grant Green on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums. The talents of Green are quite welcome here – as his lighter touch on the strings makes Jimmy open up a bit more than with some of his other compatriots in this format – creating a groove that's less bluesy, with slight modal touches. The set includes a nice long original called "Back Talk", plus the cuts "T'Ain't No Use", "I'm Movin On", and "Hotel Happiness". Cool cover, too, with Jimmy posed in front of the wheel of a Jaguar!
