PerceptionLive At Le Stadium ... CD
Souffle Continu (France), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Unreleased live work from this fantastic French group of the 70s – a free jazz quartet, but one with a key difference – and that difference is the Fender Rhodes of Siegfried Kessler! Kessler's a monster on both electric and acoustic piano – which he uses on the set as well – and both instruments are played with a fierce frenzy that really shapes the action – bold, blocky, and very chunky – while reedman Jeff Seffer wails away on bass clarinet, soprano, sopranino, and tenor saxes! Rhythm is nice and bold too – Didier Levallet on acoustic bass, but recorded with this raspy, dark-toned style – and the great Jacques Thollot on drums. Titles include "Ville D'Avril", "Chott Djerid/Hymnus", Adexqi", "Stadium Exchanges", and "Un Coq D'Amailloux". CD

✨✧ PerceptionMestari ... LP
Le Chant Du Monde/Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really amazing album from a French free jazz group who are really finding their way forward – issued in 1973, but already very different from most of the initial post-1968 recordings on the Parisian scene! The album features a concert recording, with three very long-spun tracks by the quartet – amazing improvisatory energy flowing between the bass if Didier Levallet, the drums of Jean My Truong, the electric piano and clavinet of Siegfried Kessler, and the mix of piccolo, bass clarinet, tenor, and sopranino sax of Jeff Seffer – who also blows this very cool "malabar" reed instrument of his own creation! Both Kessler and Seffer are completely off the hook – and it's great to hear electric keys used in this way on a free jazz recording – bold and very sinister. Titles include "Mestari", "Trabla Air", and "Chott Djerid". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PerceptionPerception ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The amazing first album from Perception – a French avant-jazz group that you might recognize from other performances from some of its members – a quartet lineup that includes Siefried Kessler on acoustic and electric piano, Didier Levallet on bass, Jean My Truong on drums, and Jeff Seffer on soprano, tenor, and bass clarinet! The style here is a bold step forward from the French free modes of the BYG/Actual recordings in 1969 – still very open, expressive, and improvised – but maybe given a bit more structure at times through the chunky use of the bass and drums, which is then echoed by Kessler on the keys, especially when he's electric – although at other moments the pianist can spin out with strong lines that rival the freedoms of Cecil Taylor! Seffer is amazing too – a player that we wish we knew more of, as his work on the record is tremendous, especially on tenor – really giving full depth to tunes that include "Debora", "Enitram", "Narcisse", "Chirato", and "Phenobarbital".

✨✧ Monk HigginsExtra Soul Perception (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Solid State/Dusty Groove, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by Monk Higgins – a genius musician/arranger who first got his start on the Chicago scene of the 60s, then moved out to the west coast at the end of the decade – where he also helped inject some funky new sounds into the Blue Note label! This set's got a vibe that echoes some of that work – particularly Monk's albums with trumpeter Blue Mitchell – but there's also maybe a loftier vibe that reflects Higgins' ties to the Chess/Cadet label, where he cut some fantastic funk singles, both under his name and with other artists too. The approach here takes a core funky jazz group and adds in just the right touches of strings – with a sound that reminds us a lot of some of the Richard Evans' genius work for Cadet, but with maybe a bit of a Cali vibe too. Monk blows tenor and plays Hammond – in a group that also features the mighty Jim Horn on flute, Alan Estes on vibes, and both Freddy Robinson and Arthur Adams on guitar. Most tunes are original, and the feel of the record is every bit as groovy as its cover – with titles that include "Sitting Duck", "Collision In Black", "Just Around The Corner", "Watermelon Man", "Straight Ahead", "Poker Chips", "Doing it To Deff", "The Look Of Slim", and "A Good Thing".

Eric SidayUltra Sonic Perception ... LP
Dual Planet (Australia), Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs! A number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches. Titles include "Comet", "Ultimate", "Moonscape", "Galaxy", "Suspended Animation", "The Machines", "Pavane", "Pizzicato Piano", "Challenge Of Space", and "Eclipse". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Richard Popcorn WylieExtrasensory Perception ... CD
ABC/Dusty Groove, 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Majestic music from the mighty Popcorn Wylie – the Detroit soul legend best known for his work in the 60s, but an artist who really shines on this rare 70s set for ABC! The album was done during the same stretch as Lamont Dozier's ABC work – and like those records, this set features killer arrangements and production from McKinley Jackson – who updates an older Detroit groove strongly, while still keeping all the real soul elements of Popcorn's music intact! Dozier helped a bit on some of the tunes, and the whole thing's got a soaring, joyous feel that's really wonderful – uptempo without being uptight, positive without sounding hokey, and perfectly in a unique space that's all its own. Gene Page and Paul Riser throw in a bit of soul on some tracks too – sweetening things up with just the right touches of strings and horns – and Popcorn's vocals are great, especially on some of the more hauntingly-constructed tunes. Titles include the massive "ESP", which begins with an echoey breakbeat, then rolls into a great hook – plus "Trust In Me", "How Did I Lose You", "Georgia's After Hours", "Lost Time", "I Can Take The World On With You", "Both Ends Against The Middle", and "Singing About You And Me".

✨✧ Dave PikeDoors of Perception ... CD
Vortex/Wounded Bird, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovily tripped-out work from vibist Dave Pike – and one of the few American albums that matches the experimental sound of his work for MPS! The session's often quite free and open – in a way that not only uses odd instrumental combinations and arrangements, but which also features some offbeat production by Herbie Mann that further abstracts the sound! Elements of Pike's earlier work shine through in a few of the more straightforward groovers, but his new European-endowed sense of hipness wins in the end – thanks to a good deal of modal grooves, psychedelic elements, and even a bit of fuzzy Fender bass! Other players include Lee Konitz on alto sax, Don Friedman on piano, Chuck Israel on bass (electric and acoustic), and Eddie Daniels on tenor and clarinet – and titles include "Free Improvisation", "The Drifter", "Ballad", "The Doors Of Perception", and "Anticipation".

✨✧ CatalystFunkiest Band You Never Heard (Catalyst/Unity/Tear & A Smile/Perception) ... CD
Muse/32 Groove, Mid 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
It's a dream come true! This beautiful 2 CD set brings together all of the rare Muse albums by the great fusion ensemble Catalyst. Although the band aren't necessarily the "funkiest band you never heard", they are an amazingly soulful jazz combo, and their albums are filled with tight jazzy licks, firey solos, and amazingly tight rhythms. The band features amazing keyboards by Eddie Green and great reeds by Odeon Pope – plus crackling drums, heavy rolling basslines, and lots of nice arp work. Nearly every track is fantastic – and we can't believe what a great deal this set is. Includes the cuts "Jabali", "The Demon", "Suite For Albeniz", "Ain't It The Truth", "Ile Ife", "Celestial Bodies", "Salaam", "Mail Order", and "Shorter Street". Fantastic all the way through – and proof that the US market can still get reissues right! CD

✨✧ Johnny HartmanToday ... LP
Perception, 1972. Very Good ... $2.99
Perhaps not considered as classic as some of his earlier sides, this album recorded for Perception in the early 70s proves that Johnny was capable of stretching his bag, and not just a play-it-safe interpreter of syrupy ballads. Like a lot of the jazz recordings on Perception at the time (by the likes of Dizzy Gillespie and Shirley Horn), this set's got an edge you wouldn't expect – with some very hip arrangements overall that really sound great – performed by a quartet that includes George Coleman on tenor and Herman Foster on piano. The set features interpretations of material that range from brilliant, to daring but off-track – and titles include "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Didn't We", "Summer Wind", and "Betcha By Golly Wow".

Eddie Jefferson sings vocals on a hilarious version of "Pennies From Heaven", and other titles include "Heritage Hum", "Road Runner", "Soul Searching", and "Travel On". LP, Vinyl record album

Perception/Breathless (Italy), 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Our favorite of Wanda's LPs for Perception! The record features Wanda's hip righteous poetry, in the same tradition of Camille Yarborough, plus a strong funky backing laid down by Julius Brockington and the United Chair. The record is an incredibly soulful one – the kind of underground wisdom and knowledge project that rarely gets made in the record industry today. Wanda's voice works perfectly with the funky backing, shouting out loud and powerfully on the tracks "Carnal Was the Word", "The Un Hero", "Paranoia", and "Because They Envy Us". CD

✨✧ Larry YoungLawrence Of Newark ... LP
Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Incredible stuff from the jazz underground of Newark! This is one of the rarest albums ever recorded by jazz organist Larry Young – cut for the tiny Perception label during the early 70s, and featuring some of the cream of the New Jersey jazz underground. The album's got playing that bridges a number of Young's different styles – from his straighter soul jazz work at Blue Note, to his harder jamming with Santana and John McLaughlin, to his more fusion oriented albums for Arista. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, but there's also a large ensemble of excellent players, and lots of other percussion and cool instrumentation that really gives the album an "out there" sound! Titles include "Sunshine Fly Away", "Saudia", "Hello Your Quietness", and "Khalid Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black HeatBlack Heat (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... About January 22, 2021
A searing debut from Black Heat – one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s, and a tight little group with a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk and New York heavy! The album's got a bit of vocals – figuring in on about half the tracks – but the main focus here is definitely instrumental – with a strong emphasis on choppy guitar, sweet organ licks, and cooking horn solos on trumpet, tenor, and flute – the last two of which are played by David Newman – not normally a member of the combo, but a great guest for this session! The sound is very tight, but never slick – and often recorded with an earthiness that recalls some of the best indie label funk of the period – like the kind of grooves you might find over at Perception/Today – with all the trippiness that might imply. Titles include "Chip's Funk", "Wanoah", "Barbara's Mood", "Chicken Heads", "The Jungle", "Send My Lover Back", "Honey Love", and "Time Is Gonna Catch You". LP, Vinyl record album

Event/Southbound (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky rumpling bass, and enough choppy guitar to level a whole forest in one swoop! Lyrics are part of most numbers, but they're often in the bad-rapping or call and response mode of the People Music album – except for a few sweeter numbers which also sound pretty nice too! "Keep On Stepping" is a great little funky number – as are "Wicky Wacky", "Mr. Bass Man", and "New York Style". We also love the sweet soul track "Love", which has some great vocals, a great hook, and which sounds like a tune from their Feel My Soul LP! Other tracks include "Can't Stop The Flame", "Feeling", and "Breaking Up With Someone You Love Is Hard To Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud GilbertoThat Girl From Ipanema ... LP
Image/Trading Places (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An unusual record for Astrud Gilberto – one that has her updating her older sound by working with Philly producer Vince Montana! The approach blends Montana's Philly club in with Astrud's gently bossa-schooled vocals – in a way that glides along nicely and offers the same sort of disco-fied version of styles that were showing up in other genres at the time. The strength, though, is that since Astrud had already cut a funkier album earlier in the 70s for Perception, she was a bit better prepared to handle the session than you might guess – and the overall arrangements still have some stylistic links back to her older work. Arrangements are by Vince Montana, Don Sebesky, and Al Gorgoni – and titles include "Black Magic", "Meu Piao", "All I've Got", "Love For Sale", and the creepy "Puppy Song"! LP, Vinyl record album

The group also gets some non all-star help on rhythm from Albert Dailey on piano and keyboards, Angel Allende on percussion, and David Williams on bass – players who really help flesh out the groove, and keep things from just being more in an old school blowing session style. The great Ed Bland produced, and clearly had a hand in the overall sound – as there's moments here that recall his work for Perception Records – and tunes include a great one by Bland, and two more by Green – titles that include "Moody Magic", "Blues For Clark", "Summit Song", "Jones", and "Tee Pee Music".

Incredible work from Will "Quantic" Holland – easily one of the hardest working men in the groove business! Will's work under the Quantic and Quantic Soul Orchestra name is well known from a few key albums over the past few years – but he's also got a resume that spans far beyond those full length sets, and runs into dozens of rare singles, remixes, and related projects. This overdue collection brings together the best of that extra Quantic work – pulling together a nice range of differently-flavored tunes that further expand our understanding of Will's funky genius – a good portion of which have been out of print for awhile! 2CD package is overflowing with great work – the Quantic titles "Archipelago", "Quick Sand", "En Focus (Pilooski mix)", "Departure", "Giraffe Walk", "Perception (Nu:Tone mix)", "Off The Beaten Track (Carmel mix)", and "Don't Joke With A Hungry Man (Seiji mix)" – and remixes that include "Girl Who Wasn't There (Quantic mix)" by Victor Malloy, "Where's Vicky (Quantic mix)" by Bathysphere, "So Sudden (Quantic mix)" by Handpolished, "1958 (Quantic mix)" by Skalpel, "In Your Own Time (Quantic mix)" by Dynamoe, "Secrets (Quantic mix)" by 3 Mins with Mark Murphy, "Transworld (Quantic mix)" by UFO, "Bababatteur (Quantic mix)" by Awa Band with Tony Allen, and "Bukom Mashie (Quantic mix)" by Oscar Sulley & Uhuru Dance Band.

The lineup has a special sort of edge – no bass, and lots of interplay between Berne's alto and the clarinets of Oscar Noriega – reed lines that on their own would be enough, but which get exactly the kind of right support from the piano of Matt Michell and drums of Ches Smith – all four members often working together in these sonic clusters that really reflect their long-running understanding of each others strengths and talents!

The set was done in conjunction with Randy Muller – who arranged, produced, and wrote the tracks – and it's also got background vocals by Skyy, who fit in nicely with the record's R&B-tinged approach to the material.
