VariousDays Of Delight – Resonance (Kyoshin) ... CD
Days Of Delight/Sony (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A really special slice of Japanese jazz from the 70s – tracks from the sorts of records that make that scene so different than any others we can think of – especially in the way the musicians evolved familiar styles into personal grooves of their own! Instrumentation varies with each track, and often includes a fusing of acoustic elements with a few slight electric touches – almost never in familiar fusion ways, but instead with this organic energy that's really wonderful – and which gives almost all of these tunes a really special sort of glow! The quality of the music is a bit hard to sum up in words, but the package provides a perfect introduction to the range of great Japanese jazz albums issued by Columbia in the 70s – with titles that include "Shrimp Dance" by Hiroshi Suzuki, "On The Horizon" by Kazumi Watanabe, "Love More Train" by Terumasa Hino, "Breeze" by Hiromasa Suzuki, "Up Into The Sky" by Fumio Itabashi, "Babylonia Wind" by Kiyoshi Sugimoto, and "For My Little Bird" by Shigeru Mukai.

✨✧ Ken VandermarkResonance (10CD box set) ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 2009. New Copy 10 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing music from reedman Ken Vandermark – 10 CDs' worth of music, recorded over a week's visit to Poland and The Ukraine in 2007! The package is surprisingly rich – not just sounds recorded for the sake of copious content, but a really diverse batch of music that has us more impressed than ever at Vandermark's ability to really play over a range of different styles of expression. Plus, the set demonstrates that his ability to lead larger groups of players is sharper than ever – as Vandermark interacts here with a shifting set of musicians that include some hometown favorites from Chicago, plus overseas talents as well – a lineup that includes Steve Swell on trombone, Dave Rempis on tenor and alto, Yuriy Yaremchuk on tenor and soprano, Mikolaj Trzaska on alto sax and bass clarinet, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Mark Tokar on bass, and both Tim Daisy and Michael Zerang on drums and percussion. The set captures the performances in their entirety – and the groupings shift throughout – a variety of small combos, plus some larger ensemble work as well. Brilliant stuff – and more proof that Vandermark's one of the most important jazzmen of our generation! CD

Monty AlexanderLove You Madly – Live At Bubba's (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Resonance, 1982. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.99
Unreleased live work from pianist Monty Alexander – recording here with a bit of extra percussion in his trio, which always seems to give his music a nice little kick! The date was captured at Bubba's, in Fort Lauderdale – a club that not only seemed to be a rare spot in Florida that gave musicians a chance to open up like some of the better clubs on the west coast – but one that also did a superb job of documenting some of its best performances over the years! That's definitely the case here – as Monty maybe sounds better than on most of his studio dates of the period – stretching out on nice long tracks, with help from Paul Berner on bass, Duffy Jackson on drums, and Robert Thomas Jr on percussion – the last of whom really keeps things interesting from a rhythmic perspective – in ways that definitely show up on Alexander's keyboard too. Titles include "Love You Madly", "Sweet Lady", "Eleuthra", "Reggae Later", "Arthur's Theme", "SKH", "Swamp Fire", "Fungii Mama", "Montevideo", and "Consider". CD

Nat King ColeHittin The Ramp – The Early Years 1936 to 1943 (180 gram pressing – 10LP set) ... LP
Resonance, Late 30s/Early 40s. New Copy 10LP ... $149.99 199.99
A mindblowing look at the early years of Nat King Cole – a set that stretches in a mighty wide space before Nat's big fame at Capitol Records – and which also greatly expands our understanding of the material he recorded during his Decca years too! The music takes Nat back to a time long before most folks know his music – with roots in the bluesier side of the Chicago scene, moving through jazzier modes of the swing generation, to the tight trio work that helped Cole shape the sound of a generation – and all before he even got a chance to record more as a singer, and with bigger backings too! There's definitely some early Decca Records material from the 78rpm years, but there's also lots of alternate takes, small label material for Philo, Excelsior, and other labels – then a stunning amount of transcription recordings that were done for radio and broadcast – plus a few live tracks too. Not all the work here was recorded under Nat's name, either – as there's tracks in which Cole features strongly in other combos – although most tracks are trio numbers, and guitar great Oscar Moore is in the lineup right from the start. The 10LP set features over 180 tracks in all, remastered with really great sound – plus a 16 page booklet that's filled with notes, photos, and lots more musical history! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bill EvansEvans In England – Live At Ronnie Scotts ... CD
Resonance, 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 18.99
Bill Evans at the end of the 60s – sounding really wonderful here in a set of unreleased live recordings from London! Bill's got the fantastic Eddie Gomez here on bass – who really gets plenty of space to stretch out on the long tracks that make up most of the set – and Evans himself is very well-recorded, with a strong ear for that sense of tonal color that makes just about every pianistic choice from this period feel so completely unique! Marty Morell is on drums – as ever, a master of understatement, which really lets us fall in love all over again with Gomez and Evans – and the set features 18 tracks all recorded at Ronnie Scott's club in Soho, in December of 1969 – titles that include "So What", "Very Early", "Sugar Plum", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Waltz For Debby", "Round Midnight", "Elsa", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Turn Out The Stars", "Goodbye", "Re Person I Knew", and "Two Lonely People".

Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto '76 ... CD
Resonance, 1976. Used ... $9.99
Genius material from the team of tenorist Stan Getz and Brazilian bossa legend Joao Gilberto – reunited here in a brief mid 70s period, after their famous Verve recordings of the early 60s – and in a way that shows all the changes both artists had gone through over the years! Stan and Joao would go onto produce the sublime Best Of Two Worlds studio record during this same stretch – but this never-issued live date is arguably even deeper and darker than that record – as Stan blows with the stronger current of melancholy he seemed to unlock in period of his Sweet Rain record and onward – and Joao himself does all the singing here, without help from any female vocalist – with that bluer, more personal vibe he hit on his incredible record from 1973. The maturity and emotion of both musicians comes through right away – and support is from the trio of Joanne Brackeen on piano, Clint Houston on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – all wonderful musicians who also know just the right moment to step back and let the two giants dominate when needed. Titles include "Eu Vim Da Bahia", "E Preciso Perdoar", "Doralice", "Morena Boca De Ouro", "Joao Marcelo", "Aguas De Marco", "Samba De Minha Terra", and "Retrato Em Branco E Preto". CD
(Digipack has a slight bumped corner – aside from that it's in great shape.)

Bob JamesOnce Upon A Time – The Lost 1965 New York Studio Sessions ... CD
Resonance, 1965. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Rare material from pianist Bob James – and tracks that are a lot different than his funky Fender Rhodes albums of the 70s! The set is the first-ever issued of work recorded at Columbia University in 1965 – and the vibe is a bit like James' album for Mercury Records around the same time – a bit straight at point, but also with some surprising avant moments too – touches that make Bob part of that young generation of new experimental pianists, which would also include Steve Kuhn, Don Friedman, and the young Keith Jarrett! The first half of the set very much lives up to that mode – with a trio that features Larry Rockwell on bass and the great Bob Pozar on drums – on titles that include "Lateef Minor 7th", "Once Upon A Time", "Serenata", and "Variations". The second half is from later in the year, and is maybe more boppish overall – with a trio that features Bill Wood on bass and Omar Clay on drums – on titles that include "Indian Summer", "Solar", "Long Forgotten Blues", and "Airegin".

Thad Jones & Mel LewisAll My Yesterdays – The Debut 1966 Village Vanguard Recordings (3LP 180 gram vinyl pressing) (2019 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Resonance, 1966. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $69.99
The birth of a legend – documented here in a really wonderful package – a brilliant 2CD set that brings forth the first-ever recordings of the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra – heard here on the debut nights of their very long run of Monday night performances at the Village Vanguard! Right from the start, this group was really something special – formed by the meeting of two legendary talents, trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis – and driven strongly by a lineup of all-star players who were happy to shelve their egos this night of the week, and come together in a unit that was far more than just the sum of its amazing parts. Players on these two nights include Hank Jones on piano, Richard Davis on bass, Jimmy Owens and Bill Berry on trumpets, Bob Brookmeyer and Garnett Brown on trombones, and Jerome Richardson, Joe Farrell, Pepper Adams, and Jerry Dodgion on a flurry of amazing reed performances – producing the kinds of insane colors and edges the group was always known for! This isn't big band jazz – at least not the sort you'd think of with cliche – and instead, the recordings document the meeting of amazing talents creating effortlessly together under the leadership of two generous giants. The package is wonderful, really a tribute to this amazing music – oversized, and with a huge booklet of notes and photos – and 2CDs with titles that include "Back Bone", "Big Dipper", "Mornin Reverend", "Little Pixie", "All My Yesterdays", "Once Around", "Ah That's Freedom", and "Don't Ever Leave Me".

✨✧ Bill EvansLive At Ronnie Scott's – With Eddie Gomez & Jack DeJohnette ... CD
Resonance, 1968. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever release of a Bill Evans concert recorded at Ronnie Scotts in London – a place where he cut other work in other years, but maybe not at a level like this! The group is wonderful – Bill's budding relationship with the bassist Eddie Gomez, who was bringing a richness to the Evans piano that even previous players didn't reach – and who was also establishing the bass as as an important voice in the trio as Bill's piano! The drummer is Jack DeJohnette – a player who's just finding his voice in jazz, but a perfect choice for the others here – as the group handles material that includes "Waltz For Debby", "Very Early", "Emily", "Nardis", "Autumn Leaves", "Round Midnight", "Quiet Now", "Stella By Starlight", "Alfie", "Yesterdays", and "Turn Out The Stars". Features a 44 page booklet with previously unreleased photos, a new essay, and interviews with Eddie Gomez and Jack DeJohnette! CD

✨✧ Eric DolphyMusical Prophet – The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions (Iron Man/Conversations/unissued tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Resonance, Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic package that finally gives these recordings their proper due – one that takes the cuts that were issued on the albums Iron Man and Conversations (plus a million cheapo packages over the years) – and restores them to their original mono, right from the tapes – then adds in 85 more minutes of never issued material! The tracks here are a perfect balance of Dolphy in his final year – with some spiritual jazz currents, but still a strong sense of swing – with a fantastic lineup that includes Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, Clifford Jordan on soprano, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Richard Davis on bass, and both JC Moses and Charles Moffett on drums – almost a who's-who of people who would go onto shape the face of jazz in years to come. Titles include "A Personal Statement", "Ode To Charlie Parker", "Iron Man", "Come Sunday", "Burning Spear", "Muses For Richard Davis", "Alone Together", "Love Me", and "Jitterbug Waltz" – plus a number of other different versions of tunes. 3CD set comes with a 100 page booklet – featuring photos, essays, and interviews with Sonny Simmons, Sonny Rollins, Nicole Mitchell, Henry Threadgill, and David Murray.

✨✧ Sonny RollinsRollins In Holland – 1967 Studio & Live Recordings ... CD
Resonance, 1967. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Stunning rare material from Sonny Rollins – from a period when he wasn't doing that much work in the studio! The double-length package features Sonny blowing with a great sense of majesty and freedom – working in trio format that recalls his classic Vanguard recordings for Blue Note – but with Ruud Jacobs on bass and Han Bennink on drums – both great players who really help Rollins keep his modern edge! This isn't just a pickup overseas rhythm section – as Bennink is fantastic, at a point right before he was moving into free jazz – and Jacobs is a hell of a bassist who always makes a group sound great. The set features four studio tracks – "Blue Room", "Four", "Tune Up", and "Love Walked In" – plus more live material from the same month – long tracks "Love Walked In", "Four", "On Green Dolphin Street/There Will Never Be Another You", "Sonnymoon For Two", "They Can't Take That Away From Me/Sonnymoon For Two", and "Three Little Words". Also features a 100 page booklet – with rare photos, essays, and even an interview with Sonny! CD

Astral TravelIf You Say You Are From This Planet, Why Do You Treat It Like You Do? ... LP
Hyperjazz (Italy), 2020. New Copy ... $29.99
A record that really carries its message in its title – a set of spiritual ruminations on the nature of existence – inspired by the writings of Sun Ra, and carried off with vocals by Dwight Trible – who joins this Italian group for the recording! Each song is inspired by a different poem from Ra's This Planet Is Doomed – and the music is freely improvised, but in a relatively spiritual way – with leader Tommaso Cappellato on drums, with Fabrizio Puglisi on piano and keyboards, Piero Bittolo Bon on reeds and electronics, and Marco Privato on bass. The set may be one of the most avant albums that Trible ever recorded – and his vocals have the strong resonance of his straighter recordings, but a bit more bite, and a really mighty reach – on titles that include "Tomorrow's Destiny", "Infinity", "Science Has Changed", "The End", "Time", and "You Are From This Planet".

Jeb Bishop Trio/QuartetAfternoons ... CD
Okka Disk, 2001. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
One of the boldest statements on record from trombonist Jeb Bishop – and a really great reminder of his key contributions to the Chicago avant scene at the start of the century! Jeb's a master of subtle shape and sound on his instrument, but he can also play with a fiercer frenzy – which is definitely the case here, and he moves between a trio and quartet lineup – alongside Kent Kessler on bass, Tim Mulvenna on drums, and Jeff Parker on guitar! The match of Parker and Bishop happens on four of the album's seven tracks, and has an especially strong resonance – tuneful at times, fuzzier at others – although the trio tracks are pretty darn incredible, and have us really remembering the greatness of Kessler and Mulvenna too. Titles include "Mirror Image", "The Umbrella", "Piggly Wiggly", "Pond", and "Flex Time". CD

A strong set of material with jazzy flourishes of horn and some string arrangements, with guests including Linda Sunblad, Emily McEwan, Clara Mendes, Dyanna Fearon and others. Titles include "Everything Is Alright" feat Linda Sunblad, "Give It To Me" feat Dyanna Fearon, "Na Minha Terra" feat Clara Mendes, "Everytime We" feat Clara Mendes, "Always" feat Linda Sunblad, "Never Figure Out" feat Emily McEwan, "No Nmore Falling" feat Duanna Fearon, "Traveller Toccata", "Where We Belong" and more.

We're sure that Jimmy Greene shot that cover photo before the Covid-19 lockdown, but the image has a particularly strong resonance after all of us have faced that situation – which is why the "looking up" title on the album is very well placed! Greene's music has this sense of positivity that's really great – not an easy, blithely optimistic vibe – but this personal spirit that really comes through in his music – a vibe that's uplifting, but never too facile too – this great quality that comes through the interplay of Jimmy's work on tenor and soprano, with guitar from Lage Lund, piano and Fender Rhodes from Aaron Goldberg, bass from Reuben Rogers, and drums from Kendrick Scott – plus some guest vibes from Stefon Harris too. Most tracks are Greene originals – and titles include "Overreaction", "Steadfast", "Simple Prayer", "While Looking Up", and "April 4th". CD

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $13.99
The title alone is more than enough to win us over here – as it's a great Duke Pearson composition that turns out to be a wonderful showcase for the most lyrical modes of pianist John Hicks! That tune's the leadoff, and it really sets the tone for the record – a gently soulful set that has Hicks working in a wonderful trio with Ray Drummond on bass and Idris Muhammad on drums – both players with a warmly melodic feel, especially Drummond – who seems to create this resonance with John's piano. Titles include "Is That So", "Emily", "Yesterdays", "I'll Remember April", "Sonnymoon For Two", and "April Eyes". CD

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 2020. New Copy ... $16.99
Fantastic work from drummer Daniel Humair – a hugely important creative musician, still very much at the top of his game! Humair was one of the first European percussionists to really set his instrument free from conventions of timekeeping – to open up more possibilities for melody, which is definitely the case here – as Daniel works in a nicely loose group – with Stephane Kerecki on superb acoustic bass, and Vincent Le Quang on tenor and soprano sax – plus a bit of guest flugelhorn from Yoann Loustalot. The songs vary in length and approach, but always have a warmth that other drummers in this situation might not find – that way that Humair has of letting himself free, but never going too far outside – so that there's always this resonance with the bass, which sounds tremendous next to the saxophone. Titles include "Heaven's Gate", "Drum Thing 2", "Mutinerie", "La Cantonal", "Prologue", and a number of "Interlude" tracks. CD

Al JohnsonBack For More ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good ... $18.99
Wonderful work by Al Johnson – one of the unsung heroes of mellow 70s soul, finally getting his shot on a major label after many years as a songwriter and arranger for other aritsts. Norman Connors brought Al to Columbia – and as he did with other talents in earlier years, like Phyllis Hyman and Michael Henderson, this sort of sponsorship gave Al a chance to reach a much larger audience. Even though the record was never a huge hit, it is an enduring soul classic that still has a lot of resonance today. It features Al's classic duet with Jean Carn on "I'm Back For More" – a cut that was recorded by other artists, but which has its best-known version here. Also features "I've Got My Second Wind" – which Al did on an earlier album of his own – plus "You Are My Personal Angel", and "Peaceful". LP, Vinyl record album

Moody sounds from this reunited trio – Thollem McDonas on piano, William Parker on bass, and Nels Cline on guitar and effects – coming together here in a session that, we think, was recorded at the same time as their previous Gowanus album! As before, the music is maybe heavier in territory that we know from Cline – open, spacious, and with lots of sonic resonance between the individual elements – particularly the jagged sounds of the piano and the more subtle shadings of the guitar – but still at a level that makes Parker's bass a crucial grounding for the whole performance. The set features two long tracks – "Life In The World" and "World In A Life". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the amazing things about an improviser like Joe McPhee is the way that he can change so much and adapt to a different setting – which is definitely the case here, in a lineup that seems to produce sounds we're not sure we've ever heard from Joe before – even though we've been digging his records for decades! There's a very spacious approach to improvisation – one that often seems initiated by the drums of Klaus Kugel, who has a way of moving across the top of the toms with a resonance that's picked up by bassist John Edwards – then embellished beautifully by McPhee on trumpet and saxes! The titles of the improvisations come from the poem Burden Of Proof, by Laura Winter – and include "Burden Of Proof", "Just To Wait", "At The Waters Edge", and "To Watch A Mist Rise". CD

Van MorrisonAstral Weeks ... CD
Warner, 1968. Used ... $4.99
Van's debut album for Warner Brothers and a pretty radical departure from anything he'd done before – breaking all kinds of new ground for his own most creative work and helping pave the way for all kinds of hauntingly poetic rock, folk rock, and singer-songwriter records to come! It doesn't take more than a few seconds of opening title track, with Morrison's rawly passionate voice and spiritually yearning lyrics, to know this is a pretty remarkable creative leap from pop leaning sound of "Brown Eyed Girl" and other preceding efforts – , and it gets even more far out from there both lyrically and instrumentally! It's almost folk jazz, arrangements wise, with flute and largely acoustic instrumentation, a really spontaneous feel to the sessions, and always hypnotic, seemingly stream of consciousness vocals by Van. As loose and spacious as the sound is, the emotional resonance is pretty heavy, and sequenced as a cycle: part one In The Beginning on side 1 and part two Afterwards on side 2. A stunner! Titles include "Astral Weeks", "Beside You", "Cyprus Avenue", "Sweet Thing", "Slim Slow Slider", and "Madame George". CD

And as with that set, the keyboards are balanced by the sharp, raspy tones of Greg Tuohey on guitar – a player who almost gets key-like tones from his instrument at times, using it sparely, and with a nice sense of resonance that really helps shape the mellow grooves of the sound! The rest of the group features David Dinyard on bass and Tommy Crane on drums and percussion – and titles include "My Mistake", "Friendo", "Solace", "Here", "Is Anything Okay", "The Storyteller", "The Shadow & The Self", and "Where Now".

Sun RaDiscipline 27-II (with bonus track) ... CD
Saturn/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
One of Sun Ra's greatest albums of the 70s – recording during the same sessions that yielded the famous Space Is The Place record for Blue Thumb, and done with a very similar feel – an expansive configuration of the Arkestra in peak form! The range of expression is really incredible – from the spiritual soul jazz of "Pan Afro", to the lightly grooving June Tyson vocals of "Neptune", to the extended suite "Discipline 27-II", a stretched-out spacey number with vocal "dramatizing" by Ra, Tyson, Ruth Wright, and Judith Holton. That track's a particularly great one, with the kind of spiritual resonance behind the spacey approach that rarely comes through as strongly on other albums – but the whole set is wonderful, and judging how reminscient of it some of the best, similarly-minded underground jazz is decades later – the whole thing is an amazing testament to how strong Ra's influence is today. Reissued here on CD for the first time ever – with a bonus "Untitled Outtake". CD

Jim brings some spiritual resonance to his lyrics, and the music is very well produced – sweet keys and horns flavor the production, and there's kind of a post easy listening charm to the sound.

Gil Scott-HeronI'm New Here (10th Anniversary expanded edition) ... LP
XL, 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
Heavy, soul-baring lyricism delivered with spiritual resonance and wise authority by Gil Scott-Heron – his first album shot in far too many years, and a direct hit – essential listening for longtime listeners and neophytes alike and a well worthy entry in a legendary career! Scott-Heron is documenting his world as profoundly and poetically as ever here, and the production is built with spare, haunting beats and atmospheric bits of strings, guitar, keys, loose atmospherics and hazy electronics – loosely framing his voice and giving it all the room in needs to carry the mood. Gil sings and speaks with equal authority throughout, and you can hear the years in his voice like never before, giving him the worn edges of the old soul he always evoked. This is a record we're proud to put among his treasured recordings of the 70s and early 80s. Titles include "On Coming From A Broken Home" (Parts 1 & 2), "Your Soul And Mine", "I'll Take Care Of You", "Where Did The Night Go", "Running", "The Crutch" and more, including several interludes that are pretty amazing – captures of conversation that show Gil nearly as charismatic and poetic in "off" moments as he is recording a song. Also includes 2 covers, "Me And The Devil" (the Robert Johnson song) and the title track, Smog/Bill Callahan's "I'm New Here", given a whole new life. Expanded anniversary version also features some great material recorded at the same time – the titles "Handsome Johnny", "My Cloud", "Piano Player", "King Henry IV", "Jazz", and 2010 live studio takes of "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", "Is That Jazz", and "Winter In America".

Rogue Art (France), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Great work from two players who really seem to find each other very quickly here – improvising freely in a way that creates strong resonance between the piano of Matthew Shipp and the alto of Rob Brown – as both musicians have notes cascading forward in this effortless way, often hitting the sharper sides of their sonic spectrum, yet never in a way that's needlessly flashy or overly aggressive! Instead, there's a simple, basic understanding of the space of free play – and both Brown and Ship step into it with confidence, but mixed with generosity – creating some fantastic sounds together on the eight improvisations on the set.

Step In (Joe Fonda/Carlo Morena/Felix Lecaros Herrera)Voila La Tendresse ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99
Bassist Joe Fonda may well be the best known player in the group – but the real star of the show is pianist Carlo Morena – as he wrote all the selections on the album (save one), and spins out these tremendous long lines on piano – filled with life and soul, color and flow! Morena's got a balance between louder resonance and more careful notes that might be somewhere in the territory of the younger Steve Kuhn – but he's also very much his own man, and get superb depth from the basswork of Fonda – and the carefully spaced out drums of Felix Lacaros Herrera – a player we don't know at all, but who's a key part of the sound of the trio. Titles include "Voila La Tendresse", "Often", "Japan", "Chorale", "Dog With No Name", and "Moglichkeiten". CD

✨✧ UGK (Underground Kingz)Ridin' Dirty (clean promo pressing) ... LP
Jive, 1996. Near Mint- ... $14.99
The mid 90s classic from Underground Kingz – they're commerical breakthrough, with all the uncompromising grit of their first few records on the lyrical tip, albeit with a stripped down soulful resonance to a lot of beatcraft. The gritty rhymes is the unifying element here, with tracks that split the difference between lean, crisply bouncing, hard-hitting production and surprisingly soul and funk steeped tracks. It works great on both sides of that style divide, and it's little wonder that made such a big impact at the time. Stands the test of time, too. 10 clean edited tracks: "One Day", "Murder", "Pinky Ring", "You Don't Know Me Fool", "Diamonds & Wood", "3 In The Mornin'", "Touched", "Ride My Car", "Good Stuff" and "Ridin' Dirty".

✨✧ Abdullah Ibrahim (Dollar Brand)Dream Time ... LP
Enja (Germany), 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful solo piano work from Abdullah Ibrahim – a later set that's got a different vibe than some of his earlier material in the format, in a way that shows the continuing evolution of his sound! There's a gentleness here that we might not have heard back in the 70s – a quality that can make things more introspective, even when the pianist is exploring the rhythmic currents that have always defined his sound – working here on a Fazoli grand piano, which has a resonance that seems to further amplify every note and pianistic decision. Titles include "Dream Time", "Blues For A Hip King", "Sotho Blue", "For Coltrane", "Blue Bolero", "Nisa", "Genesis", and "Whoza Mtwana". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Van MorrisonAstral Weeks ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Van's debut album for Warner Brothers and a pretty radical departure from anything he'd done before – breaking all kinds of new ground for his own most creative work and helping pave the way for all kinds of hauntingly poetic rock, folk rock, and singer-songwriter records to come! It doesn't take hearing more than a few seconds of the opening title track, with Morrison's rawly passionate voice and spiritually yearning lyrics, to know this is a pretty remarkable creative leap from pop leaning sound of "Brown Eyed Girl" and other preceding efforts! It's almost folk jazz, arrangements wise, with flute and largely acoustic instrumentation, a really spontaneous feel to the sessions, and always hypnotic, seemingly stream of consciousness vocals by Van. As loose and spacious as the sound is, the emotional resonance is pretty heavy, and it's sequenced as a cycle: part one (In The Beginning) on side 1 and part two (Afterwards) on side 2. A stunner! Titles include "Astral Weeks", "Beside You", "Cyprus Avenue", "Sweet Thing", "Slim Slow Slider", and "Madame George". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cecil TaylorLifting The Bandstand ... CD
Listen Foundation, 1998. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A late 90s recording, and one that has Cecil Taylor really going strong – soaring out on a long, improvised piece that runs for 75 minutes in length – with a strong and unusual group that features Tristan Honsinger on cello, Harri Sjostrom on soprano sax, Teppo Hauta-Aho on bass, and Paul Lovens on drums, cymbals, and gongs! In a way, there's a resonance between Taylor and Lovens that holds the whole thing together – sometimes Cecil's voice and Lovens' percussion ringing out – while free interplay takes place between the entire group, but really with a sense of patience that shows the way that things open up over the long time of the performance! The set features one long cut – "Desperados", improvised freely – and the album's title is from an enthusiastic statement by Steve Lacy after the concert. CD

✨✧ VariousErnest Chahoud Presents Taitu – Soul Fueled Stompers From 1960s/1970s Ethiopia (3LP set) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of Ethiopian funk – rare singles from the late 60s and early 70s – all brought together as an amazing illustration of a time when the scene was really on fire! The music here has this incredible resonance between ancient and modern – local and global – as older instrumental modes and singing styles get inflected with drums, basslines, and horn parts that are strongly influenced by American funk and soul – all at a level that makes for one of the most mindblowing mixes of music you'll ever hear! The "stompers" in the title is very well-chosen – as many of these grooves are maybe even more floor-shaking than conventional funk – with a different rhythmic structure than American styles, but an end result that's even more powerful overall. Titles include "Ewnetegna Feker" by Hirut Bekele, "Endiet Zengeshiw" by Selomon Shibeshi, "Alkedashim" by Birkineh Wurga, "Hasabe" by Teshome Meteku, "Mela Mela" by Seifu Hohannes, "Sigibgib Joroye" by Tilahun Gessesse, "Fikrishin Eshaleyu" by Getatchew Kassa, "Alagegnhwatem" by Muluken Melesse, "Ene Yewodedquat" by Tamrat Molla, "Felagote" by Bezunesh Bekele & Bodyguard Band, "Temeles" by Hirut Bekele & Alemayehu Eshete, and "Teleyeshign" by Merawi Yohannis.

✨✧ VariousPacific Breeze 2 – Japanese City Pop, AOR, & Boogie 1972 to 1986 (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet sounds from a real golden age in Japanese music – a time when the scene had picked up plenty of influences from the US scene, but was carefully crafting some great styles of their own! The music here has touches of jazz, fusion, soul, and AOR – but there's a special balance that's a bit different than American chartbound material of the time – tight, but never too slick – and with a great ear for allowing the more interesting sides of the music to come forth in all the best ways – so that although catchy, the tunes aren't just going slavishly for a hook or a hit! There's a lot of resonance in the instrumentation with some of the scene that had Japanese jazz musicians working with American fusion players – but the overall approach is maybe more soul-based overall. An even deeper set than the first volume – with titles that include "Kanpoo" by Yumi Murata, "Hidari Mune No Seiza" by Tetsuji Hayashi, "Yubikiri" by Eiichi Ohtaki, "Vibration" by Kimiko Kasai, "Pink Shadow" by Bread & Butter, "The Tokyo Taste" by The Sadistics, "Blind Curve" by Momoko Kikuchi, "Skyfire" by Eri Ohno, and "Rainy Saturday & Coffee Break" by Junko Ohashi & Minoya Central Station.

✨✧ Somei SatohEmerald Tablet/Echoes ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1978/1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two stunning works from Japanese experimentalist Somei Satoh – both very different, but very minimal too! "Emerald Tablet" moves between the farther reaches of sound into moments of sustained resonance on tubular bells, which then shifts to noisier moments too – all delivered through the addition of cymbals and brass percussion instruments with a feel at times like one of Harry Bertoia's Sonambiant sound sculptures was caught in a tornado! "Echoes" has different core elements – an echo machine and a number of tape recorders – used in shifting levels to create a moody sonic space – which itself was originally used for an art installation at a hot spring!

The guitar of Gordon Gridna provides a really fresh balance for the piano of Matthew Shipp here – an instrument that seems to unlock more color than usual in Shipp's work on the keys – really illuminating, although still with some of his usual dark corners, which is what makes the shift so wonderful! Mark Helias hangs right in the middle on bass – providing real grounding at some points, and a bridge at others – as all three musicians work with the kind of resonance that makes a record like this such a sonic standout! Titles include "The Distance", "Stick & Move", "Bob & Weave", "The Onslaught", and "Feather Weight". CD

Ouch! Expensive – but worth it! This excellent set features 2CDs worth of killer club tracks – most of which we've never had on reissue before! The whole set is a massive tribute to the legendary New York DJ David Mancuso – the man who broke many of these tracks back in the day. The set features a nice book with comments on Mancuso by Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, and Larry Levan – but the real treat is the music!

✨✧ Freddy KingLet's Hide Away & Dance Away With Freddy King ... CD
King, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer early material from Freddy King – a blues album, but one that's also got a strong resonance with instrumental soul and early funk! The record is "Strictly Instrumental" – as the cover says – and a nice batch of short bluesy groovers that feature Freddy's great guitar work! Freddie was way more than just a blues guitarist, as his style here was a definite precursor to funk – hard, heavy, and with the kinds of little tricks that would be taken up a lot by other players in the funky 45 era. Tracks are all nice, and titles include "San Ho Zay", "Side Tracked", "Wash Out", "In The Open", "Heads Up", "Just Pickin", and "Swooshy". CD

✨✧ MND/SchlangenfeurFreedom Suite ... LP
Edition Telemark (Germany), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really unique artifact from the European improvised music scene at the start of the 70s – a recording from Germany, but one that maybe has some of the more freewheeling, genre-stepping qualities of French avant work of the time! The recording is one long improvisation done during a German festival in 1971 – a meeting between the MND trio, a group whose name stands for "modern North European village music", and which features drummer Sven Ake Johansson, guitarist Norbert Eisbrenner, and bassist Werner Gotz – and the larger Schlangenfeur ("snake fire") – a group of artists who lived communally, and who bring a mix of percussion, voices, cello, and viola to play in the performance! The music is very free, but also very organic – sounds building up in resonance between the whole ensemble of participants, instead of one artist taking the lead, or rising up in the mix – with a very deep, textural feel, and maybe just occasional guitar parts stepping out from the larger sound of the set. Things really intensify as the performance moves on – and at some level, this is almost free improvisation bordering on the noise experiments of the Nurse With Wound generation!

✨✧ Matthew Shipp/John Butcher/Thomas LehnClawed Stone ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title of this set sounds a bit stark – and that's maybe a good reference to the overall sound – which is spacious, yet powerful – often with a brooding quality that really brings out a strong resonance between all three musicians! The piano of Matthew Shipp is in wonderful form here – maybe the most individual voice of the session – as the tenor and soprano sax of John Butcher are often matched with the electronics of Thomas Lehn – in ways that sometimes makes it difficult to tell what sounds are coming from the reeds and what are coming from the electronics – yet we mean that in the best way possible, as it really reflects the inventiveness of both musicians! Shipp's presence is maybe a more organic balance to the others – in a way that really works well – as the trio moves through a mixture of short and long improvisations, with titles that include "Trippy Revelation", "Off Kilter", "Links On Canvas", "Tastes Of Song", "Stitched Equivalence", and "Blurred & Sewn".

✨✧ John Tchicai/Cecil McBee/Garrison Fewell/Charlie KTribal Ghost ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The set's got a really beautiful sound – one that comes from the ringing guitar tones of Garrison Fewell, and the twin reeds of John Tchicai and Charlie Kohlhase – each of whom plays in a different channel of the recording! This approach gives the record a great sense of space from the start – as Tchicai plays tenor and bass clarinet, and Kohlhase plays alto, tenor, and baritone – with Fewell's guitar bridging the space and creating a resonance that really holds the whole thing together. And if that's not enough, the album's got some sublime bass work from Cecil McBee – often very subtle and soulful – plus just the right touch of drums from Billy Hart. The set's proof that they do still make 'em like they used to – at least in terms of spiritual avant sessions – and titles include "The Queen Of Ra", "Tribal Ghost", "Dark Matter", and "Llanto Del Indio".

Two beautiful long tracks from Japanese pianist Shoji Aketagawa – recording here with just he bass of Hiroshi Yoshino for accompaniment – in a style that mixes some of the deeper tones of Shoji's straighter records with an approach that's maybe looser and more improvised overall! Parts of the album almost feel as if Cecil Taylor were trying to step into Erroll Garner territory – hitting moody ballads, but breaking out with freer moments on the keys – while others are maybe a bit warmer, and have some of that unusual full piano resonance that always makes these Aketa's Disk recordings by Aketagawa sound so different than most other Japanese piano recordings of the period. The set features two long tracks, both nice and open! CD

✨✧ Evan ParkerMonoceros ... LP
Incus (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Evan Parker, playing solo soprano sax – and recorded in a unique way that cuts his performance directly onto disc, which results in really stunning sound! The textures of Parker's music here are wonderful – bold notes mixed with more obscure sonic statements – all beautifully captured by the recording style, which features a solo microphone in the space of a room – so that the resonances of the reed lines are also reflected as they flow out into three dimensions. And unlike some other Parker material of this nature, the whole thing is very spontaneous and soulful – never too dry or academic, and much more with the vibrancy of Steve Lacy in a similar setting. LP, Vinyl record album
