Orchester Roland KovacBlue Dance/Milky Way ... 7-inch
Saba/Wallen Bink (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
Two wonderfully groovy tracks from vibist Roland Kovac – both lifted from his album Trip To The Mars! "Blue Dance" is great – a modal number that has plenty of vibes in the mix – moving up and down the wonderful bassline and piano part that really make the tune move! "Milky Way" is great too, but in a very different way – spacey and moody, with some sublime solo alto sax from Derek Humble! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Really wonderful pressing – done from the original master tapes! Limited edition too.)

Mark MurphySconsolato/Just Give Me Time ... 7-inch
Saba/Wallen Bink (Germany), 1967. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
The great Mark Murphy works here with key members of the Clarke Boland Big Band – in a sweet small combo mode that makes for one of the hippest albums the singer ever recorded! "Sconsolato" is this wonderful tune written by bassist Jimmy Woode – and Mark takes the tune at a nicely easy clip, with well-inflected vocals that open the song up beautifully! "Just Give Me Time" is a fantastic jazz dance number – great on the vocal tip, but made even better by work from Sahib Shihab on baritone, Ronnie Scott on tenor, and Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Really wonderful pressing – done from the original master tapes! Limited edition too.)

Baden PowellSarava/Canto De Ossanha ... 7-inch
Saba/Wallen Bink (Germany), 1966. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
Killer 60s work from the great Baden Powell – two tunes done for the Saba/MPS label, both with a very jazzy vibe! "Sarava" moves fast and fierce – lots of percussion driving the tune at the bottom, including work from the great Milton Banana on drums – while Baden delivers this crisp guitar solo over the top! "Canto De Ossanha" is one of our all-time favorite tunes – originally done by Powell with Vinicius De Moraes, but even better here in a fast-driving small combo mode! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Really wonderful pressing – done from the original master tapes! Limited edition too.)

Ben Webster & Don ByasBen Webster Meets Don Byas ... LP
Saba (Germany), 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
A rare meeting of these two American giants of the tenor sax – brought together at the end of the 60s in Europe, both recording late in their careers, but with a laidback and open approach that's really wonderful! The format here is quite loose – a bit like some of the late hours, swing-based sides on Prestige at the end of the 50s – with longish tracks that let both players state their solos in clean, well-recorded phrasings – with gentle support from a trio that includes Tete Montoliu on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums. There's a few faltering moments at times, but they also add a nice degree of humanity to the record – kind of a dimming genius that might not have been allowed on an American session by either player, but which speaks volumes here for the time and distance both players had travelled! Titles include "Caravan", "Sundae", "Blues For Dottie Mae", and "Perdido". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese gatefold MPS pressing – YS 2511 MP. Inside gatefold has some light aging, but outside is nice.)

✨✧ Fats SadiEnsadinado/Night Lady ... 7-inch
Saba/Wallen Bink (Germany), 1966. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Ensadinado" isn't an easy title to say – but the tune is a wonderfully catchy groove from European vibist Fats Sadi – pulled from his rare Saba album of the same name! The cut's got kind of a modal soul sort of approach – with help from the core of the Clark Boland ensemble on rhythm – Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! The flipside is a great take on the Boland number "Night Lady" – even better on this version with vibes in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two fantastic American players – both coming together here on a rare European session for the Saba/MPS label in Germany! "Carmell's Black Forest Waltz" features not just great saxophone from leader Nathan Davis, but also a strong trumpet solo from Carmell Jones – blowing over this excellent modal groove from Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! "B's Blues" is a bold soul jazz number – stunning work from both horn players, with Davis on a soprano sax for his solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nathan Davis is one of our all-time favorite saxophone players – and he sounds tremendous here in the company of trumpeter Woody Shaw, as the pair both take on Shaw's early "Zoltan" composition, with help from Larry Young on piano! The flipside features an even bolder number – the Davis composition "Mister E", with some very fierce work from Young on the piano – a really surprising change from his usual organ work of the time! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Contemporary Jazz QuintetLocation ... CD
Strata/BBE (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 19.99
A spiritual jazz classic from Detroit – and one of the few records from this important Motor City group! The Contemporary Jazz Quintet were a groundbreaking ensemble that mixed together hardbop and modernist playing – sometimes with a keen ear for Miles Davis' experiments of the late 60s, but also with an underground Detroit flavor that's well in keeping with that city's rich traditions! The group was ostensibly led by pianist Kenny Cox – and it's his name that their two Blue Note albums were issued under – but on this rare third set from the Detroit-based Strata label, the group appears more as a larger collective with an even more freewheeling vibe – a lineup that includes Cox on piano, Charles Moore on trumpet, Leon Henderson on tenor, Ron Brooks on bass, Charles Eubanks on electric piano, and Ron English on guitar. Tracks are long, with a stretched-out pre-Bitches Brew sound – plus some freer avant jamming – and titles include "Noh Word", "Bang", "Tao", and "Nguzo Saba". CD

Nathan DavisNathan Davis With Georges Arvanitas Trio – Live in Paris – The ORTF Recordings 1966/67 (180 gram 3LP pressing) ... LP
Sam Records (France), Mid 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... About October 15, 2021 (delayed)
Amazing music by one of our favorite saxophone players of all time – captured here at the height of his 60s genius on the European scene! The tracks here have never been issued at all – but stand as a perfect complement to the killer MPS/Saba albums by Nathan Davis – and are served up with a similar blend of soulful hardbop and modernist edges – qualities that are already present in the fantastic phrasing of Davis on tenor and flute, pushed even further by the equally great work of French piano legend Georges Arvanitas! Although Arvanitas could be out when he wanted, he could also swing like the best of them – and his pairing with Davis here is perfect, and really brings out both the soul and edge in both players – especially in the company of George's fantastic rhythm duo of Charles Saudrais on drums and Jacky Samson on bass. The set's full of other surprises, too – including a bit of organ from Arvanitas, and an appearance by Jack Dieval – and the whole thing is beautifully recorded by French Radio. Tracks are all long – and include "Mid Evil Dance", "Blues For Southeast Asia", "The Hip Walk", "Rules Of Freedom", "A5", "The Thing", "Love Ye The Neighbor", "Nathalie's Dance", and "Yesterdays" in both flute and tenor versions.

Carl Drewo & The Clarke Boland Big BandSwing Waltz Swing ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 29.99
One of the coolest projects ever to come from the Clarke Boland Big Band scene of the 60s – an album done under the leadership of Austrian tenor player Carl Drewo, but one that features all of his bandmates from the better-known big band! The set's wonderfully swinging throughout – done in a jazz waltz style with plenty of modal inflections – hardly the overdone Strauss modes you might expect from Drewo's roots, and more of the groovy 60s European rhythm modes that would show up often in sessions on Saba & MPS! Most tracks dance along beautifully – using instrumentation that includes Benny Bailey and Dusko Goykovich on trumpets, Sal Nistico on tenor, Sahib Shihab on baritone and flute, and Derek Humble on alto – all supported by the CBBB rhythm team of Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – plus the amazing Fats Sadi on percussion, really grooving along nicely at the bottom. Drewo's the lead soloist in most numbers, but he allows plenty of space for his bandmates too – and the session's got a sound we'd rank right up there with some of the best Clarke Boland projects of the 60s. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Fruhlingsstimmen", "My Favorite Things", "Claudia", "Schon Ist Die Welt", "Just Give Me Time", and "Keep On Keeping On". LP, Vinyl record album

Dick FarneySerie Bis Bossa Nova ... CD
EMI (Brazil), Late 50s/1970s. Used 2CD ... $19.99
Dick Farney was a rich-voice singer whose talents spanned many generations of Brazilian music – as you'll hear in this package that collects work from Farney's EMI/Odeon recordings of the late 50s, plus other sides that were issued in the 70s. Farney's a bit like Tony Bennett – a singer who was superb in his early years, and almost even better in his later ones, working here in the 70s sides with a mature sophistication that surpasses even the careful emotion of his earlier sides. Titles include "Aeromoca", "Nao Tem Solucao", "Fotografia", "Marina", "Uma Loira", "Voce Nao Saba Amar", "Secretaria", "A Saudade Mata A Gente", "When I Fall In Love", "Inutil Paisagem", "Nem Eu", and "Risque". 28 tracks on 2CDs.

Albert MangelsdorffLegends Live – Audimax Freiburg June 22, 1964 ... CD
Jazz Haus/SWR (Germany), 1964. Used ... $9.99
Brilliant sounds from trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – a rare live set that captures the modern jazz giant at the height of his powers! The set was recorded around the same time as Albert's famous Now Jazz Rammwong record – and it's got a very similar feel, with lots of elements from Eastern and Indian music styles – touches of the exotic intertwined with modal rhythms, soulful solos, and some occasional freer jazz moments! The blend of sounds is completely captivating, and the recording quality is excellent – sharp enough to make the whole thing feel like some lost Saba/MPS gem from these incredibly creative years in German jazz. In addition to Mangelsdorff's trombone, the set also features tenor and soprano sax from Heinz Sauer, alto from Gunter Kronberg, bass from Gunter Lenz, and drums from Ralf Hubner – on titles that include "Sakura Waltz", "Raknahs", "Now Jazz Ramwong", "Oakaka", "Theme From Pather Panchali", "Burungkaka", and "Far Out Far East".

Sahib ShihabCompanionship – Jazz Joint Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vogue/Rearward (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 34.98
Double-length brilliance from the mighty Sahib Shihab – a set that collects a number of killer 60s sessions with members of the Clarke Boland Big Band – all of them great! The small combo work here is amazing – hard-hitting modal jazz that matches, if not tops the best MPS/Saba sounds of the time – all produced to perfection with a really sharp edge, and a cutting approach to jazz that's gone onto inspired countless others in the current scene – including artists on Schema and Ricky-Tick Records, as well as most Japanese club jazz combos! But long before any of those cats started copping his groove, Sahib Shihab had it all totally together – a great ear for his own amazing solos on baritone and flute, and a way of hooking up with players like Francy Boland on piano, Fats Sadi on vibes, Benny Bailey on trumpet, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. All players here were Shihab's partners in the Clarke Boland Big Band, and they use these small combo sessions to explore some great new ideas – stripped-down groovers that are heavy on rhythm, and really allow full expression from all the players involved. Titles include "Companionship", "Om Mani Padme Hum", "Bohemia After Dark", "Serenata", "Yah Yah Blues", "Balafon", "Talk Some Yak-ee Dak", "The Turk's Bolero", "CT + CB", "Jay Jay", "Stoned Ghosts", "Just Give Me Time", and "Dijdar".

Sahib ShihabSahib Shihab & All Those Cats ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), Mid 60s-Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $24.99
Although reed player Sahib Shihab made a few records in the US in the late 50's, it wasn't until he moved to Europe and started hanging out with the likes of the Clarke-Boland Big Band that his talents really started to flower. This cool new LP brings together 15 small-combo recordings made by Shihab and other members of the CBBB (like Fats Sadi, Benny Bailey, Francy Boland, and Jimmy Woode) during the mid 60's. All the material was recorded by CBBB manager/producer Gigi Campi, and none of the stuff's been issued before as far as we can tell. The groove is nice and swinging, with excellent rolling grooves by Sadi on bongos and vibes. Shihab plays both flute and baritone, and the set swings with the same sort of modal groove as the best Saba/MPS recordings from the time. Cuts include "Campi's Idea", "Dijdar", "Companionship (I + II)", "Peter's Waltz", "Om Mani Padme Hum", and "Herr Fixit". As with the other titles in this series, the music's accompanied by a great package, with loads of excellent photos, good notes, and stellar sound quality. This is the kind of stuff we collect jazz for, and it's great to have it in stock at a nice low price! LP, Vinyl record album

Sahib ShihabSummer Dawn (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Argo/Rearward (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 29.98
A fantastic early record by Sahib Shihab – a motherlode of modal jazz grooves, cut during the early days of the Clarke-Boland Big Band! The record features a core group of players from that ensemble – including Shihab on alto, baritone, and flute, plus Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, Ake Persson on trombone, Francy Boland on piano, Joe Harris on bongos, and Kenny Clarke on drums – all coming together here with a groove that's really groundbreaking – a style that's sweet and soulful, but rhythmically revolutionary too! The tracks are all long and grooving – with the kind of dancing jazz tone that you'd expect from the Saba/MPS label during the mid 60s – a big change from the Argo label that originally issued the record. But that's no surprise, either, as the session was actually recorded in Europe by Gigi Campi – the man behind the CBBB albums on MPS – with a feel that's quite similar to other Shihab classics, like Companionship or Seeds. The whole thing's great – one of Shihab's most wonderful records, and totally worth owning – and titles include "Lillemor", "Please Don't Leave Me", "Waltz For Seth", and "Herr Fixit".

Jamila WoodsHeavn ... LP
Jagjaguwar, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A fantastic debut from Chicago soul singer Jamila Woods – the kind of artist that makes us very proud to be located in the Windy City! Woods is an extremely inventive lyricist – strongly inspired by poetry, but also immediately trying to communicate in a wider spectrum with her sound – at a level that's maybe even smarter and more sophisticated than you'd guess from her look on the cover, which might make you think that she's just another pretty face in mainstream music! Instead, Woods seems ready to reinvent the role of the female singer in soul music – getting help from hip collaborators who include our hometown hero Chance The Rapper, as well as Nico Segal, Saba, Lorine Chia, and Noname. Titles include "Bubbles", "In My Name", "Popsicle", "Assata's Daughters", "Blk Girl Soldier", "Emerald Street", "Breadcrumbs", "Stellar", "Holy", and Good Morning" – plus "LSD", a tribute to our city's great lakefront!

✨✧ Mary Lou WilliamsMary Lou Williams (Black Christ Of The Andes) ... CD
Mary, 1963. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album – and one of the best records you'll ever find by Mary Lou Williams! The record's a mixture of jazz and spiritual themes, and it features Mary Lou's piano set in some super-hip jazz arrangements that include players like Grant Green, Budd Johnson, Larry Gales, Melba Liston, Ben Tucker, and Percy Heath. The bass and piano work is amazing, and many tracks have a dark groove that's very subtle, but very compelling. About half the tunes feature hip choral vocalizing – in the mode of some of the Donald Byrd or Max Roach albums from the same time – mostly handled by the group of Howard Roberts. Includes the classic groover "A Grand Nite For Swinging", plus "A Fungus Amongus", "Anima Christi", "Miss DD", "The Devil", "It Ain't Necessarily So", and "My Blue Heaven". Great stuff all around – and even better than we're describing it! This CD issue features the original Mary Records cover art – different than the Saba/MPS or later Smithsonian CD versions. CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

✨✧ Klaus DoldingerDoldinger Goes On ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost treasure from German saxophonist Klaus Doldinger – one of his best records from the 60s, recorded at a key point when he was really shifting his style! The set's still got Klaus working with keyboardist Ingfried Hoffmann, whose work on organ made his early records so great – but on this set Hoffmann also shifts from organ to piano on a few of the tracks, working through a modal jazz style that has strong leanings towards the nascent Saba/MPS groove of the time! Doldinger himself is also really opening up – playing soprano sax as well as tenor, and going for a snakey sort of tone that fits in really well with the modally grooves, and which also sets the stage for a European style of sax work of the 70s, without all of the overindulgences that would show up in his own later work. Really great stuff all the way through, and a groove-happy album that's filled with delights! Titles include "Watch It", "Just A Little Bit Of Soul", "Five For You", "Tears", and "Quartenwalzer". Never issued in the US, either! CD

A sweet little set of tunes from Art Van Damme – all recorded for MPS/Saba records at the end of the 60s – a time when he was doing his best work on record! Art was still playing accordion at the time – as he did on his earlier American albums – but here, his style is nicely compressed, and mixed with a bit of smoother production in a small combo setting – all of which creates a really mellow tone, and a heavenly sound that's beyond compare! The music here is way more than jazz, way more than easy listening – and if you never thought you liked the accordion before, you should check this one out, because Art makes the instrument sound like nothing we've ever heard. Titles include "Ode To The Cleavage Or The Camel", "Wave", "My Little Boat", "Gone With The Wind", "Cute", "Poor Butterfly", "Ecstasy", "Cheers", and "All The Things You Are". CD

✨✧ Nat BirchallStoryteller – A Musical Tribute To Yusef Lateef (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A tremendous record from one of our favorite saxophonists of the past decade – the completely sublime, completely wonderful Nat Birchall – a musician who was way ahead of the curve towards spiritual jazz that others have hit in recent years, and one who still does it better than anyone else! The title gives away only part of the story – as Nat's definitely paying tribute to the great Yusef Lateef, particularly the mix of soulful jazz and exoticism in his earlier work – but the overall execution is very much in the best Birchall mode – long-building tracks, really informed by a strong tradition of spiritual energy, and not just in musical form – as the leader blows tenor, soprano, bass clarinet, and handles a range of instruments from around the globe – in the company of Michael Bardon on bass, Andy Hay on drums and percussion, and either Adam Fairhall or John Ellis on piano, depending on the track. A few of the tunes are classics from the vintage Lateef songbook, and Birchall has also seamlessly contributed a few numbers of his own – making for a fantastic double-length set, with titles that include "Tales Of Saba", "Ching Miau", "Salaam Brother Yusef", "Inward Flight", "Brother John", "Not Yet Ornette", "Ringo Oiwake", and "Mashariki" – plus a great version of "Love Theme From Spartacus", a tune that Lateef made his own back in the 60s, with a fantastic reading that's gone on to inspire many.

The group's led by drummer Lief Johansson, and has a way of moving through larger arrangements with the mix of modernism and swing we love from Clark Boland Big Band, or the work of Gustav Brom in his prime. There's a cool wordless vocalist on a few tracks – singer Tove Norholdt, who hits these cool Scandia tones – and other players include Erling Kroner on trombone, Anders Muller on piano, Per Goldschmidt on baritone and tenor, Jesper Nehammer on alto and tenor, and Michael Hove on baritone, soprano, and alto. Includes versions of the Mingus tunes "Goodbye Porkpie Hat", "Peggy's Blue Skylight", and "Selfportrait In Three Colors" – plus originals "The Hi-Lief Suite", "Jo Jo", and "I'm Trying I'm Dying".

The great drummer Joe Chambers is one of the few Blue Note greats from the 60s who's still making groundbreaking records for the label – and although we don't hear from him often, each new record from Joe continues to be a delight! This set features Chambers not just on drums, but also vibes and a range of percussion – including Brazilian instruments that he uses to flesh out the grooves in the spirit of the title – not straight Brazilian rhythms, but the kind of soulful modern jazz that Joe has always given us, inflected with work on guiro, cuica, congas, and other percussion instruments. The group here is just a trio – Steve Haines on bass and Brad Merritt on piano and keyboards – but the sound is hardly that of a trio record at all, thanks to inventive arrangements from Joe that really expand on the rhythms first, the other elements second. One track features vocals from Stephanie Jordan, another from MC Parrain – and titles include "Sabah El Nur", "Visions", "Ecaroh", "Circles", "Samba De Maracatu", "Rio", "New York State Of Mind Rain", and "Never Let Me Go".

Really unique music from Aby Ngana Diop – a poet as much as a singer – and one who speaks here over some really raw, really driving music that's plenty heavy on percussion! The sound is quite different than other Senegalese styles you might know from the time – as the sabar and tama drums are very hard and beaty – almost as if they're electronic, or processed samples – but still sounding very live and raw. Most tracks feature a trio of female singers as backup – which, when mixed with the percussion, almost puts the work in some sort of weird offshoot ESG territory – although a lot more driving than funky overall. Titles include "Liital", "Sapaly", "Ndadje", "Yaye Penda Mbaye", and "Ndame". LP, Vinyl record album

As a producer, Ernestus has remixed African legends from Tony Allen to Konono No 1, and apparently hooked up with these musicians as the result of record digging quest in Dakar. We're glad he went. It's a great set! The group includes players for Baaba Maal, Youssou N'Dour and other legends – and they include Bakane Seck, Rahim Ngom, Rahim Dgon, Kora Faye, Moustafa Samb and more. Includes "Gbawlo" with Baaaba Maal, "Xale" with Mbene Diatta Seck, "Ndeye Gueye" with Doudou Ndiaye Rose, "Mbeuguel Dafa Nekh" with Mbene Diatta Seck, "Casamance" with Ale & Khadim Mboup, "Sama Yaye" with Mbene Diatta Seck, "Bamba" with Mbene Diatta Seck, Ale & Khadim Mboup and "Daguagne".

KabasaAfrican Sunset ... LP
Lyncell/BBE (UK), 1982. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 28.99
A sweet Soweto group from the start of the 80s – one who have a nice current of funk in their mix, but who also serve up some well-crafted solos on both guitar and flute! The vocals are often warmly in that more familiar South African style of the period – but the record's nicely rougher around the edges than both the hits or some of the more electronic sets of the time – and the use of flute really makes things stand out on some tracks, with a warm, organic quality that really keeps things interesting – especially next to more standard keyboards. Titles include "Walking In The Jungle", "Rainbow Children", "Mafeteng", "African Sunset", "Sengiyesaba", "Happy To Be Me", and "Awundiva". LP, Vinyl record album

Marcelo D2A Arte Do Barulho ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2008. Used ... $11.99
Marcelo D2's still looking for the perfect beat, but this time around he's got some great help in his search – a list of heavy duty guests that includes Seu Jorge, Miriam Aydar, Medaphor, Roberto Sa, and Marcos Valle – each of whom get a chance to add strongly to a track on the album! As before, the style's a Brazilian variant of hip hop – heavy beats on the bottom, crisp production throughout, and a fair bit of Portuguese rhymes on the top inflected in ways that are quite different than those on American hip hop. There's a fair bit of warm Brazilian elements in the mix too – percussion and melodies you'd never here up here on a record like this – and although lots have copied Marcelo's approach in recent years, he's still one of the best! Other guests include Thama De Frietas, Stephan Peixoto, and Cabeza De Panda – and titles include "Desabato", "A Arte Do Barulho", "Ela Disse", "Kush", "Meu Tambor", "Minha Missao", "Fala Serio", "Pode Acreditar", "Ativadade Na Laje", and "Afropunk No Valle Do Rap".

Elza SoaresElza Soares (1974) ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Standout samba from Elza Soares – a cracker of an album from the mid 70s, and exactly the best sort of record to get you started appreciating her talents! Elza's got a great blend here – some of the soulful elements of her samba contemporaries, mixed with a bit of the fullness of Brazilian divas from years back – never as overblown as romantic pop, but filled with a great sense of feeling that really works nicely with the grooves! Instrumentation is tight, and right on the money – warmed up a bit by the production, which also deepens the soul – and titles included "Louvei Maria", "Partido Do Le Le Le", "Desabafo", "Bom Dia Portela", "Pranto Livre", "Nao E Hora De Tristeza", and "Giringonca".

✨✧ VariousEccentric Disco ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A great take on the sorts of soul sounds we love from the folks at Numero Group – rare tracks from their mighty archive of indie label releases from back in the day – pulled together as a special package of disco-oriented tunes! Yet if you know Numero, you'll know that you're quite far from Studio 54 with the sound of these tracks – all nicely different cuts pulled from indie labels like TSOB, Cancer, Great Lakes, Tap, and other imprints that hardly got much circulation back in the day – with styles that are very different than more produced, more mainstream disco grooves of the period. Titles include "Shake Your Chic Behind" by Stephen Colebrooke, "Fantasy Ride" by Uneda Dennard & The Shandells Band, "Flying High" by Jackie Stoudemire, "Stop & Make Up Your Mind" by Arnie Love & The Lovelettes, "Rockin Poppin Full Tilting" by Lee Alfred, "Go For It" by Spirit Of Brotherhood, "Man For My Lady" by Sabata, "I Need Your Love" by Billy Foster & Audio, "I Love You" by Karriem, and "This Is The Night For Loving" by Great Lakes Orchestra.

VariousRare Gems From Hungarian Vaults Vol 2 – Blue Light ... CD
Cosmic Sounds (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
A great counterpart to the first volume of rare 60s Hungarian jazz from Cosmic Sounds – as this one has more of a 70s focus, and an overall sound that's more concentrated in funk! During the 70s, the Hungarian scene picked up a lot of the heavier fusion influences from the rest of Europe at the time – but in a way that often had rock groups hitting a lot more jazzy overtones too, playing instrumentally and jamming nicely on some of the funkiest tracks on their albums. The cuts on this set really get at that sort of groove very well – and demonstrate the surprising amount of funky material that was coming out of Hungary at the time – work that was often driven by a more progressive jazz influence, but which came out stepping with a really in the pocket groove to rival the best American fusion work of the time! CD features 11 tracks in all – including the sublime modal groover "Bamba" by Dimenzio, plus "Ole" by Andor Kovacs, "Kemenysepro" by Kis Rakfogo, "Blue Light" by Bergendy, "Green Wave" by Aldar Pege, "K 14" by Csaba Deseo Quintet, "Stroll In Debrecen" by Debrecen Jazz Group, "Jaguars Humming Birds & Amazons" by Mini, and "Tropusi Laz" by Panta Rhei.

✨✧ VariousTchic Tchic – French Bossa Nova 1963 to 1974 ... CD
Born Bad (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A really cool combination of styles – bossa nova rhythms from Brazil, mixed with French language vocals – often given some very cool twists and turns in the arrangements that really make the music sound unique! Make no mistake, there's a definite Brazilian vibe to these cuts – but that also mixed with elements from 60s French pop and soundtrack work, which makes the whole thing sound wonderfully groovy, and a very fresh take on territory that we already love already! In other words, the combination of "French" and "bossa nova" is even better than you might expect – served up here on titles that include "Vai Vai" by Jean Pierre Sabar, "Corto Maltesse" by Sylvia Fels, "Casa Forte" by Isabelle Aubret, "Pas Tant D'Chici Ponpon" by Jean Constantin, "Le Petit Cuica" by Marpessa Dawn, "La Poupee Des Favelas" by Ann Sorel, "Un Enfant Cafe Au Lait" by Charles Level, "T'As Vu Ce Printems" by Aldo Frank, "HLM Et Cine Roman" by Christianne Legrand, "La Lune" by Francoise Legrand, "Aquarela" by Hit Parade Des Enfants, and "Comme Une Samba" by Frank Gerard.

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosSonhos E Memorias 1941 to 1972 ... CD
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record filled with cover images that run from Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, to Mick Jagger, Caetano Veloso, Chairman Mao, Jorge Ben, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol – and a set whose sound definitely seems to live up to such heady company from the 20th century! Erasmo Carlos is at his inventive best here – very playfully creative, yet in a way that refines his style from his trippier years – almost a reinvention of the singer's approach for a new generation of MPB – in a manner that some of the Tropicalia artists were doing at the time. The songwriting and production are great – and if the album were in English, it may well have been a global hit (although it did pretty well at home back in Brazil!) – and titles include "Mane Joao", "Largo Da Segunda Feira", "Sabado Morto", "E Proibido Fumar", "Preciso Encontrar Um Amigo", and "Mundo Cao".

✨✧ Manzanita Y Su ConjuntoTrujilo, Peru – 1971 to 1974 (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Stunning sounds from the early 70s Peruvian scene – a really unique take on the cumbia mode of the time, and one that's topped with plenty of psychedelic touches as well! In truth, the rhythms here are often as Cuban as they are Colombian – a really great hybrid of both, used alongside these sweetly bubbling organ lines that are often thinner than a Hammond organ, which lets the guitar step out even more strongly over the top – often with these sounds from both elements that act like a distant cousin of anglo psych, but make for a very surprising addition to Latin rhythms! The set brings together the best cuts from a key recording period of Manzanita – and titles include "La Buenita", "No Me Marchare", "Lamento En La Puna", "Salome", "El Norteno", "Un Sabado Por La Noche", "Shambar", "La Mazamorrita", and "Catita".

A simply groooooovy collection of rare bossa tunes! The set goes farther than the first volume in the series – dipping into a wide range of material that includes Brazilian albums from the 60s, but also some more obscure American and European sources, which gives the set a slightly expanded groove that's very fresh! Titles include "A Child Runs Free" by Fred Johnson, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Quarteto Em Cy, "Ye Me Le" by The Gimmicks, "Tudo De Voce" by Wilson Simonal, "Fio Maravilha" by Tania Maria, "Mad About The Boy" by Cybil Shepard, "Zozoi" by France Gall & Cesar Camargo Mariano, "A Vontade Mesmo" by Raulzinho, "Freio Aerodinamico" by Os Tres Morais, "Mar Azul" by Som Imaginario, "Bahia Bossa Nova" by Bernard Lubat, "Vai Vai" by Jean Pierre Sabar, "Spooky" by Som Tes, and "Chove Chuva" by Nelsinho.

✨✧ Anteloper (Jaimie Branch & Jason Nazary)Tour Beats Vol 1 ... LP
International Anthem, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing sounds from Anteloper – a great side project from trumpeter Jaimie Branch, and one that lets her open up with lots of the more electronic sides of her spirit! The set's a collaboration with Jason Nazary – who adds in acoustic drums plus a host of electronics and effects – echoed by Branch, who blows her usual strong lead on trumpet upfront, but also works electronic magic too – so that the duo are creating in the best mix of live instrumentation, processing, and editing that have made the International Anthem label such a powerhouse in new waves of jazz in recent years. The work's not unlike some of the recent projects of trumpeter Rob Mazurek – who, not surprisingly, provides notes on the record – which includes the tracks "Bubble Under", "Isotope 420", "Soledad Sabateur", and "Radar Radio".
