✨✧ Pieces Of A DreamPieces Of A Dream ... CD
Elektra, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
The debut of a genius group that would forever transform the sound of electric jazz in the 80s – and a brilliant set that few others could match at the time! Pieces Of A Dream first snuck onto the scene with a sound that was refreshingly subtle at the time – almost a back-to-basics approach to electric jazz, and one that got past some of the excesses and more dancefloor-oriented styles that hit a lot of fusion at the end of the 70s. The approach here is often quite light – still soulful and rhythmic, but mostly with a gentle focus on the group's keyboards by James Lloyd, which really set the scene wonderfully for the flowing mellow soul style of the record. The jazz component of the work is still relatively strong, too – even on the tunes that feature vocals by singer Barbara Walker – a great fit for the group's sound on the cuts "Warm Weather" and "Lovers". Other titles include "Body Magic", "Touch Me In the Spring", "Steady Glide", and the classic "Pieces Of A Dream". CD

✨✧ VariousEcstasy Of Gold Vol 1 – 23 Killer Bullets from the Spaghetti West ... CD
Semi Automatic/Floating Dream (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer batch of Spaghetti Western soundtrack grooves – one that features some of the coolest and most representative sounds of the genre – by the Italian composers who both invented and perfected the style! The compilers have done a great job putting together material that has all the definitive elements, but totally transcend cliches or self-parody. It's also nice a balance of instrumental pieces and some groovy theme songs with vocals. Pure greatness! Volume 1 includes "Banditos" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "The Price Of Gold" by Angelo Lavagnino, "Memories" by Luis Bacalov, "Blindman's Arrival" by Selvio Cipriani, "Vengeance" by Carlo Savina, "Killer Calibro 32" by Robby Poitevin, "Dead Men Red (Suite 8)" by Bruno Nicolai, "Stranger" by Francesco Di Masi, "Il Bandito Messicano" by Benedetto Ghiglia and more.

✨✧ HarmoniaComplete Works (Musik Von/Deluxe/Live 1974/Tracks & Traces/Documents 1975) 5CD set) ... CD
Brain/Gronland (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 5CD ... $38.99 40.99
A stunning set – one that brings together two rare albums from this legendary group – plus essential rare material too! First up is Musik Von Harmonia – an electronic prog classic – served up by the trio of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius from Cluster, plus Michael Rother of Neu! The tracks here have a definite Cluster-like sound – instrumentals that use organ, keyboards, guitar, and electronic percussion to build up some wonderfully analogue-styled grooves – often quite slow at first, but filling up nicely as added elements come into the mix! The record's easily one of our favorites from the time, and has a much darker sound than later Moebius/Roedelius work. Titles include "Watussi", "Ohrwurm", "Ahoi", "Dino", "Sonneschein", "Sehr Kosmisch", "Veterano" and "Hausmusik". Next is Deluxe – a brilliant little album from Harmonia – quite possibly their greatest record ever, and a set that's wonderfully balanced between progressive and electronic modes! There's a live drummer on the set – Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru – and although he still plays with a spare, circular mode that recalls the Harmonia rhythms of before, there's also a slight bit of propulsion here too – one that pushes the keyboards and guitars alongside nicely. There's also some spacey vocals at times, which when coupled with these other elements, gives the record a sound that's a bit like early Neu – although still a bit more electronic overall. A great bridge between two worlds of music in the German scene of the 70s – with tracks that include "Gollum", "Monza", "Notre Dame", "Deluxe", "Walky Talky", and "Kekse". Next is Live 1974 – a hypnotic live set from Harmonia – and a pretty incredible sonic document of the hugely important group made of Krautrock lynchpins Michael Rother, Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Mobius! The gig was one from March of 1974 in Griessem, Germany and it finds the trio kicking out the trance inducing ambience, lumbering 70s style electronic manipulation, and improvisational interplay without ever sacrificing a heady groove! The group was hardly content to simply play the tracks from their couple of LPs – taking a much more freeform, exploratory and beautifully languorous approach to their sound – a pretty raw, but no less beautiful swirl of electronic percussion, keys, synthesizer and ambient guitar. Titles include "Shaumberg", "Veteranissimo", "Arabesque", "Holta-Polta" and "Ueber Ottenstein". Tracks & Traces is textural mood pieces and quite beautiful material from Harmonia and Eno – beautiful mid 70s recordings and a few unreleased gems – wholly wonderful material that weirdly didn't see a release for about 30 years! Some of the tunes are sparely furnished, kind of pastoral bits of echoing atmospherics and trance inducing sound loops, others with more jarring bits of dissonant tension, and all of it holding up proudly with the better known work of the sound masters involved, together and separately! Includes "Welcome", "Atmosphere", "Camos Comapneros", "By The Riverside", "Weird Dream", "Almost", "When Shade Was Born". "Aubade" and more. Last up is Documents 1975 – four unreleased tracks all recorded during the pivotal year of 1975, when the group was really pushing its sound a bit, and helping find a new path forward for the energy of Krautrock! As with other Harmonia work, there's a sense of layering and modal progression that drives most of these numbers forward – but there's also a bit of compactness, too – which has some of the most important musical elements playing a stronger role more quickly – showing both the direction that group members Dieter Moebius and Hans Joachim Roedelius would take in later work, and the influence that Harmonia would have on other European acts through the post-punk years. Mani Neumeir of Guru Guru joins in on drums on two tracks – and along with Michael Rother, the varied instrumentation from Moebius and Roedelius includes lots of keyboards, electronics, guitar, Fender Rhodes, and even a nagoja harp! Titles include "Tki Taka At Harmonia Studio In Forst", "Proto Deluxe At Harmonia Studio In Forst", "Live At Fabrik In Hamburg", and "Live At Onkel Po In Hamburg". CD

Stanley TurrentineSugar Man ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
A classic set from Stanley "Sugar Man" Turrentine – a nickname the reedman had at the time, given the success of his famous CTI Records version of "Sugar"! This set follows in that same great mode – jazzy, but a bit funky too – although couched with this gentle sense of soul that's perfect for that spacious style of soloing that Turrentine perfected over the years – a way of blowing openly, and without too much fuss – but managing to hit all the right notes along the way! There's a great glow to the whole record – an excellent easygoing sense of soul – and titles include an incredible reading of "Vera Cruz", done with Deodato on piano, and at a breakaway speed that's just great, and worth the price of the record alone! Other tracks feature piano by Harold Mabern or organ by Butch Cornell – and titles include "The Stretch", "Just As I Am", and "Pieces Of Dreams". CD

✨✧ Sarah Vaughan & Michel LegrandOrchestra Arranged & Conducted By Michel Legrand ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful collaboration between Sarah Vaughan and Michel Legrand – and easily one of Sarah's greatest albums of the 70s! As he was doing with other singers at the time, Legrand helps Vaughan hit a new level of sophistication here – bringing in tunes that really get past simple pop and older standards, with adult themes supported by equally mature backings – filled with rich colors and complicated tones developed over Legrand's great work on film scores. Almost all tunes are originals by Michel – many pulled from his film work – and he also scored the arrangements here, working with the orchestra in a swirling blend of strings and jazz. Titles include "I Will Say Goodbye", "Summer Me Winter Me", "His Eyes Her Eyes", "Wave", "Blue Green Grey & Gone", "Pieces Of Dreams", "Hands Of Time", "The Summer Knows", and "Once You've Been In Love". CD

✨✧ Average White BandAverage White Band Anthology (5CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A really well-done collection of tracks by the Average White Band – one that not only includes most of their funky classics, but also focuses on heavily sampled cuts, and then presents rare 7" and 12" single versions – as well as some rarities and live material too! The inclusion of all those extra bits make the whole thing way more than just a "hits" package – as the whole thing is still essential, even if you own many of the group's classic records – and the set is a book-styled package, with memories on the music from Hamish Stuart and Alan Gorrie. CD1 features The Classics – titles that include "Cut The Cake", "Star & The Ghetto", "Work To Do", "Pick Up The Pieces", "Feel No Fret", "School Boy Crush", "Put It Where You want It", "Whatcha Gonna Do For Me", and many others. CD2 and CD3 feature heavily-sampled tracks – including "Got The Love", "Sweet & Sour", "Person To Person", "Big City Lights", "Back In 67", "Daddy's All Gone", "If I Ever Lose This Heaven", "Get It Up For Love", "For You For Love", "Love Of Your Own", "Digging Deeper", "Love Your Life", "I Can't Just Give You Up", "TLC", and other cuts too.

✨✧ Steve Swell's Kende DreamsHommage A Bartok ... CD
Silkheart (Switzerland), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tribute to Bela Bartok from the great trombonist Steve Swell – but a record that's very much in the spirit of all of the other fantastic records that Steve's been giving us! There's nothing too compositional here – the record is all original music, not versions of Bartok pieces – but the legendary avant classical figure would certainly appreciate the evocative tones and strong use of space from the group – a sublime quintet that also features Rob Brown on alto, Connie Crothers on piano, William Parker on bass, and Chad Taylor on drums! With a lineup like that, it's hard to miss – and these guys really knock it out of the park – on long, moody numbers that include "Roswellian Folk Song", "Lent Oh", "Ultima", "Attack Of The Mikrokosmos", "Bartok Screams", and "After SQ4". CD
