✨✧ Marcus & Riza PrintupGentle Rain ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful setting for the sparkling trumpet of Marcus Printup – a set that just features the harp of Riza Printup alongside his horn – beautifully intertwined with a gently soulful vibe, in a way that's a bit different than any other jazz harp albums we can think of! Printup is already great on a mellow tune or a ballad – but here, his trumpet is exposed even more, with a sense of honesty and intimacy that's really beautiful – maybe made even more special by the fact that Riza's his wife, and the two seem to share a musical partnership that's very personal. Titles include "Here's To Life", "Madison", "A Child Is Born", "Gentle Rain", "It Amazes Me", and "How Do You Keep The Music Playing". CD

Selda BagcanSelda ... CD
B- Music/Finders Keepers, 1975. Used ... $13.99
Funky breaks and fuzzy guitars – one of the most amazing albums to come out of the Turkish scene of the 70s – and one with a sound that really defies categorization! Although the sweet image of a girl and guitar on the cover might make you think the record's a folk set, the overall production is heavily electric – filled with fuzzed-up touches on the guitars, and usually supported by some funky drumming that gives most of the record a cool Eastern break sort of feel! Lyrics aren't in English, but they're oddly compelling even if you don't know what they mean – as Selda's voice has a weird other-wordly quality, and comes off with the same tripped-out qualities as the music! Titles include "Ince Ince", "Nasirli Eller", "Mehmet Emmi", "Dost Uyan", "Gitme", "Kizil Dere", "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz", and "Meydan Sizindir". CD features 5 bonus tracks – but it's not like you've got the original album, and needed those as an incentive to buy the reissue! CD

Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Near Mint- ... $13.99
The last album that Tim Buckley ever gave the world – and a great leaping-off point for speculation about what he might have done, had he not left the planet too soon! Tim's actually beginning to explore a bit of funk in his music here – still using that amazing voice with all of its range from the early Elektra years – but often set to backings that feature heavy drums from Earl Palmer, tight bass from Chuck Rainey, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – all cats who can be tight, but never slick – and whose groove is more than loose enough to let Buckley direct the whole proceedings. Given that Tim has an occasional raw rasp, and a very offbeat way with his lyrics, the mix of elements is actually not that far from the funk of Betty Davis on her first two albums – with a similar shrug towards any easy genre categorizations. Titles include "Freeway Blues", "Look At The Fool", "Tijuana Moon", "Mexicali Voodoo", "Down In The Street", "Wanda Lou", and "Bring It On Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy CobhamTotal Eclipse ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1974. Used ... $19.99
Full throttle fusion from Billy Cobham, the kind of stuff we once winced at because of the really over the top moments of heavy, heavy jamming, but that we find ourselves more sympathetic to these days, probably for the more sublime moments that poke through the onslaught here and there, including some nice spacey tracks. The Brecker brothers are up front, and the group has the tight electric approach you'd guess, with some easier grooves sliding in between the full on moments, and even a bit of funk, too. Includes "Solarization", "Lunarputians", "Total Eclipse", "Bandits", "Moon Germs","The Moon Ain't Made Of Green Cheese", "Sea Of tranquility" and "Last Frontier" CD

Cortijo Y Su ComboFiesta Boricua (with bonus track) ... CD
Rumba/P-Vine (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $29.99
That's a pretty festive pig roast taking place on the cover of this one – and the band's got an equally festive groove to match! The set bristles with all the sharp energy we love from the early Cortijo albums – a tight, percussion-heavy approach to Latin grooves – one that's a rougher contrast to some of the polish on the New York scene of the early 60s – speared through with soulful vocals from a young Ismael Rivera! The album's a cracker throughout – filled with lively tracks that never seem to let up the groove – and titles include a great Latin jazz version of "Volare", plus "Oriza", "Que Le Paso?", "Mofongo Pelao", and "Solavaya". CD features the bonus track "Yayabo". CD

DhaimaLove Lives Forever ... LP
Numero, 1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
A unique mix of 80s era digital reggae and electro soul from Miami singer Dhaima – definitely one of the cooler, more uncategorizable Numero discoveries in their post-1970s oeuvre! Love Lasts Forever has 5 long-ish jams that kicks off with "Reggae On Sunset" – starting strong with a slow rolling reggae rhythm and a laidback soulful lead vocal by Dhaima that's steeped in raw 80s atmosphere all the way down to the vocoder – followed by a similar style jam, this time with a nice bit of horn, on "Don't Feel No Way" – but the vibe changes up a bit on the almost ballad-y "Surrender" and the charmingly raw "Loving You Is My Thing" before coming full circle with the digital era sounding, rootsy influenced groover "Sweat Til your Body's Wet".

George JacksonOld Friend – The Fame Recordings Vol 3 – Rare & Unreleased Recordings From The Fame Vaults ... CD
Fame/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Never-issued work by the great George Jackson, mixed together with a handful of some of the few singles released back in the day – all to serve up a seminal portrait of this crucially-overlooked talent in southern soul! George was one of those backroom figures who helped out countless other artists – he wrote songs for some of the best, and recorded a fair bit of material at the Fame Records studios too – but oddly most of his music was never issued in the 60s and 70s, and it's only in more recent years that we're finally getting the fuller picture of his genius on his own! Jackson's a hell of a singer who really brings a rich degree of characterization to his well-penned words – some of the hippest, most sophisticated deep soul lyrics of his time – served up here with equally great Fame Studios backings that go way beyond the Muscle Shoals studio work the players were doing for bigger name artists. And although the set's the third in this excellent series, there's not a bit of filler, and not a sign of Jackson running out of steam – just pure deep soul greatness throughout, on titles that include "Break Away From Me", "I'm In The Middle Of A Good Thing", "It's Up To His Woman", "I'm Holding On", "Superstitious Woman", "Bad Case Of Love", "Heart On A String", "Gotta Have Soul", "That From The Heart", "Won't Nobody Cha Cha With Me", "All He Can Do Is Love You", and "If You Ain't Here".

Charles LloydForest Flower ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
A famous album – and for good reason too! The set's something of a landmark in spiritual jazz from the 60s – and it features a classic live performance from Charles Lloyd, recorded at the Monterey Jazz Festival – almost as a distillation and popularization of ideas that were brewing in the music of John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, and others! The group here features a young Keith Jarrett on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all flowing magnificently with Lloyd's work on tenor and flute – in an open-ended groove that draws on modal rhythms for inspiration, and which features solos that stretch out, but never go "outside"! The classic performances of "Forest Flower" takes up all of side one – with a dreamy drifting quality that has Jarrett at his best – and side two features a version of his "Sorcery", plus McBee's "Song Of Her", and a version of "East Of The Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roberto RoenaRoberto Roena Y Su Apollo Sound 5 (remastered edition) ... CD
International/Fania/Codigo, 1973. Used ... $11.99
The mighty Apollo Sound combo at the height of their powers – hard-hitting on percussion, but also sparkling with some jazzier touches on tenor sax, flute, and trombone! Roberto Roena had a slightly looser groove than some of his contemporaries, and as you'll hear on this set, there's space in the rhythms for a good deal of variety without losing the overall strength of the album. Vocalists include Tito Cruz, Sammy Gonzalez, and Frankie Calderon – and titles include "Cui Cui", "Asuncion", "Que Se Sepia", "Oriza Eh", "Solo Contigo Basta", and "Ponte Duro". CD

Boz ScaggsBoz Scaggs & Band ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Early blue eyed soul work from Boz Scaggs – an album that's got a lot more rootsy touches than some of his bigger crossover hits! At one level, the album seems to have a Bay Area-styled approach – genre-blending soul, R&B, and rock influences into a sound that proudly steps forth without any care for categorization. But at another, Boz already displays a keen ear for a sweeter soul track – and comes across nicely with a compressed AOR mellow groove on the album's best tracks. The set was put together with a lot of heavy production work and investment (despite a homey "hey we're just the band" sort of cover image) – illustrating the fact that CBS clearly already saw a lot of promise in Boz – and titles include "Monkey Time", "Flames Of Love", "You're So Good", "Here To Stay", and the nicely funky "Why Why".

VariousFrom These Shores – Otherworldly Music & Far Out Sounds From Hawaii ... CD
Aloha Got Soul, 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $11.99
A really unusual little compilation – hardly anything that you might expect when you think of Hawaiian music – but that's kind of the lesson we've also been learning from the Aloha Got Soul label! Instead, the package brings together obscure recordings from the island state – tracks from the 60s, 70s, and 80s – many of which fall into a unique space that's really beyond any sort of easy categorization or genre – described on the cover as "sun-tinged folk" and "soft psych" – two phrases that only get at the tip of the iceberg of what's going on! Much of the music is laidback and mellow, but also has a sunny, breezy vibe that ever keeps things from being too sleepy – maybe touches of Cali soul and rock in the post-folk, post-Sunshine Pop world – but with a special sound that's as far from that scene as Hawaii is from the mainland. Titles include "Waves" by Harry Sonoda, "In Hawaii" by Dennis Soares, "Reb'll Echo" by Richard Reb'll, "Righteous Morning" by Gordon Broad, "Kaimu Sun" by Alice Wise, "Magic Sands" by Mofoya, "Revelation" by Burgess & Brooks, "High Tide" by Eddie Suzuki, "Garden In The Rain" by Merrell Fankhauser, and "How Many Times" by Lyle K'Ang.

VariousStrain, Crack, & Break – Music From The Nurse With Wound List Vol 1 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A fantastic assortment of forward-thinking sounds – music that comes from some of the farthest corners of the postwar experimental underground – and which was all famously cited by the group Nurse With Wound as a big influence on their earliest albums! That reference aside, though, the collection is more than mindblowing enough, even if you're not a devotee of NWW – because the package offers this amazing criss-crossing of styles and sources – work from territories that lie far beyond easy categorization or reference, with some especially unusual work from the oft-overlooked French scene of the 60s and 70s! You'll hear bits of noise, slices of improvisation, occasional electronics, and lots more – in modes that skew towards the instrumental, with selections that include "Cecile" by Jacques Thollot, "Warinobaril" by Lard Free, "Fille De L'Ombre" by Dashiell Hedayat, "Frayeur" by Horrific Child, "Triptik 2" by Jean Guerin, "Generique (Theme De Myriam)" by Pierre Henry, "Sarcelles C'Est L'Avenir" by Red Noise, "Solo Un Dia" by ZNR, "Captain Tarthopom" by Jean Cohen Solal, "Les Enfants Saugaves" by Mahjun, and "La Plage" by Philippe Besombes.

✨✧ Steve LacyWe See –The Thelonious Monk Songbook ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
A near-perfect exploration of the music of Thelonious Monk – played by Steve Lacy, whose own work was tremendously influenced by Monk back in the 50s! The group here is a bit unusual for Lacy – still with Steve Potts on saxes, Jean-Jacques Avenel on bass, and John Betsch on drums – but also featuring Hans Kennel on trumpet and Sonhando Estwick on vibes – both additions that really help shape the sound of this set. Lacking piano, the record's a great exploration of the impact that Monk's work had on the sound of horns in modern jazz – a style that first started emerging when Lacy moved into modernism in the 50s, and/or around the time of Thelonious' own great Monk's Music record on Riverside. Given the deftness of the players, you'll never miss the piano – and the vibes here make for an even more unique characterization of the sound. Titles include "We See", "Shuffle Boil", "Evidence", "Reflections", "Ruby My Dear", "Eronel", "Monk's Mood", and "Misterioso" – plus the Lacy number "Hanky Panky". CD also features the bonus track "Thelonious". CD

✨✧ Maria Teresa LucianiSounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her greatest – music that's beyond categorization in the way it presents its subject – not really jazz or soundtrack styles at all, but also not some sort of too-modern compositional idiom either. Instead, the whole thing seems to make some sort of honest, organic sense – as it presents differing aspects of the city, both residential and commercial, public and private – often with a sense of darkness in the immediate approach, but also with a current of hope at times too. Titles include "Public Gardens", "Modern Residential Complex", "Supermarket", "Poor Neighborhoods", "Power Station", "Traffic", and "International Airport". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bridget St JohnAsk Me No Questions ... LP
Dandelion/Trading Places (UK), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible debut from British singer Bridget St John – a set with the same spare, chilling quality as Nico's first album on Verve! Like Nico, Bridget is amazingly without categorization – a folksinger initially, but one who's working here with a darkly personal quality that goes far beyond most folk work of the 60s! There's almost a Leonard Cohen-like quality to the tracks here – as they're little song-paintings in words that accomplish a tremendous amount with very little – evocative portraits and landscapes that need little more than Bridget's voice and guitar to carry them off. Titles include "Autumn Lullaby", "Like Never Before", "Barefeet & Hot Pavement", "I Like To Be With You In The Sun", "Many Happy Returns", and "Ask Me No Questions". LP, Vinyl record album

Tresor National (Canada), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic porn soundtrack from the Canadian scene at the start of the 70s – a wicked little record from the time when even a schlocky movie could be trusted to have some pretty great music in the mix! The styles here echo some of the modes in the Vampyros Lesbos world of Jess Franco films – funky drums, great organ lines, and plenty of trippy guitar – but there's also the added use of harmony vocals on a few cuts, with female singers who give the whole thing a warmly joyous quality, and really sets the whole thing apart from the rest! The record's got a great sense of variety, including some really cool distorted moog on one track – and titles include "Felicia Nova", "Emmene Moi", "Harizap", "Chanson Pour Candy", "Cago 9", "Sans Raison", "Ouvre Ton Ame", and "Je Ne T'Attendrai Pas".
