✨✧ Gene HarrisAstral Signal ... LP
Blue Note, 1974. Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece from Gene Harris – an album that's probably been his biggest influence on the sound of soul in the 21st Century, and for good reason too! The set moves way beyond both Harris' acoustic piano roots in the Three Sounds, and his other electric sides of the 70s – into sublime spacey territory that's wrapped up in soul – as much a pinnacle of his musical vision as early 70s records were for Herbie Hancock or George Duke! The vibe here is a bit between the looser styles of Duke's MPS recordings, and the tighter grooves of the Mizell generation – and arrangements are by Harris, Harvey Mason, and Jerry Peters, the latter of whom really adds some great elements to the record. Harvey's drums make for a great funky undercurrent – and the album features the funky break track "Higga-Boom", the great groover "Losalamitoslatinfunklovesong", and the cuts "Rebato Summer", "Don't Call Me N*gger, Whitey", "Love Talkin", "I Remember Summer", "Green River", and "My Roots". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elizabeth ShepherdSignal ... CD
Linus, 2014. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest sounds we've heard from Elizabeth Shepherd in years – a record that really returns the singer to her funky roots and soulful styles! There's a stripped-down vibe to the record we really love – mostly just Fender Rhodes from Shepherd, alongside her vocals – mixed with relatively loose, spontaneous work from a small group of rhythm players – who, like Elizabeth, are all stepped strongly in jazz, but find a way of making the music come across at a more funk-based level! The lyrics are wonderful, as always – a bit less singer-songwriter than some recent years, in a good way – and titles include "Baby Steps", "I Gave", "Willow", "What's Happening", "The Signal", and "Lion's Den".

Gigi Gryce/Duke Jordan/Hall OvertonSignals ... LP
Savoy/Signal, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
An interesting record that collects the output of the rare Savoy subsidiary Signal. The label released recordings in the Music Minus One vein, but used the then new stereo technology to separate out the soloist, and always featured top flight soloists and rhythm sections. For this reissue the mix has been restored so it plays like a normal recording. The list of participants is great, and includes Gigi Gryce, Duke Jordan, Oscar Pettiford, Kenny Clarke, Phil Woods, Hall Overton, Teddy Kotick, Art Farmer, Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk,Percy Heath, Art Blakey and more, and the playing throughout is a step above what you'd expect from this sort of recording. There's 18 tracks in all, with quite a few standards as you'd expect from a recording of this nature, including "Embraceable You", "Jordu", "Oh Yeah", "Yesterdays", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Smoke Signal", "Nica's Tempo" and loads more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Oya SextettOya Sextett Live (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Signal & Sound (Netherlands), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
A really fantastic little set – one that seems to echo the South African jazz legacy of the 60s, but which also puts its own spin on things too – taking things outside at some points, while also hanging onto these modal rhythmic moments at others! The group is really wonderful – bold in spirit, and unified in sound – but with plenty of room for its individual members to stretch out and soar in their solos – in a lineup that includes Elin Forkelid on tenor, Anna Hogberg on alto, Nilas Barno on trumpet, and Sebastian Bergstrom on piano – working through numbers by Chris McGregor, Dudu Pukwana, and Mongezi Feza – a great place to start if you're going for a legacy like this! Titles include "Sonia", "Amaxesha Osizi", "The Bride", "Mra", "Do It", and "Khanya Apho Ukhona/Shine Wherever You Are". LP, Vinyl record album

BrainiacElectro Shock For President EP ... LP
Touch & Go, 1997. New Copy ... $15.99 17.99
The final EP from Ohio synth punk legends Brainiac – a huge stylistic leap from the manic mix of Moog and jagged guitars of their earlier records and live sound into a more sinister, though still slyly humorous mode – which sadly turned out to be a final statement for the band rather than a signal for their future. Working here with producer Jim O'Rourke, the band finds a whole new sound without losing their oddball charm, really drenching it with heavy synth and keys. Brainiac was at a real turning point here and it's tragic we'll never find out where they'd go next! Includes "Fresh New Eyes", "Flash Ram", "Fashion 500", "The Turnover", "For My Beloved" and "Mr. Fingers". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousJon Savage's 1965 to 1968 – The High Sixties On 45 ... LP
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 32.99
A heady dip back into the 60s – all served up by the mighty Jon Savage, who's written plenty on this pivotal time in modern music! The 2LP set is a condensation of the energy that Jon brought to his CD collections on Ace for the years 1965 through 1968 – and it focuses even more strongly on tracks that set the scene for all the changes to come – music that might sometimes seem subtle, but which had a real power to both signal coming change, and make it happen! All the tracks here are from singles – as you'd guess from the title – and tracks include "Rain" by Kak, "Train To Nowhere" by Savoy Brown, "Never Ever" by The Action, "Slim Jenkins' Place" by Booker T & The MGs, "I'm Five Years Ahead Of My Time" by The Third Bardo, "Bad Little Woman" by The Wheel A Ways, "The Other Place" by The Seeds, "Tell Me That You Love Me" by James Brown, "Agent Double O Soul" by Edwin Starr, "Too Many People" by The Leaves, "We Sell Soul" by The Spades, "Incense" by The Anglos, "That's The Way It's Got To Be" by The Poets, "Danse A La Musique" by The French Fries, "Wonderboy" by The Kinks, "Kick Out The Jams (preview pressing)" by MC5, "Hold On" by Sharon Tandy, "At The Third Stroke" by The Picadilly Line, "Sock It To Em JB (part 2)" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, and "Help Me Get The Feeling (part 1)" by Ray Sharpe with the King Curtis Orchestra.

✨✧ Zbigniew NamyslowskiAir Condition – Polish Radio Jazz Archives Vol 28 ... CD
Polskie Radio (Poland), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album titled after the studio set Air Condition, by Polish saxophone genius Zbigniew Namyslowski – but which is actually a live date from the start of the 80s – done with a very freewheeling sound! Namyslowski was a key avant player in the 60s, got very spiritual in the 70s, and hit the 80s with a more electric approach to his music – but which still carried forward the charms from earlier years! Here, he blows alto and soprano sax with a group that features Marek Blizinski on guitar, Jan Cichy on bass, and Wojciech Gogolewski on piano and keyboards – on these long-spun tracks that sometimes remind us a lot of the late 70s electric work by Sonny Fortune on Atlantic. Titles include "The Tree Of Fear", "Piri Rim Pim Pim", "Signal Air Conditioner", "From The Bottom To The Top", and "Mr Chamberlin's Samba". CD

Brian EnoApollo – Atmospheres & Soundtracks (2LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
EG/Capitol, 1983. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 34.99
An airy, atmospheric classic from Brian Eno – as you might guess from the title – a record that fits in very strongly with his initial Ambient series of albums, but which was also used to accompany a documentary film on the Apollo space flights! Despite that soundtrack use, though, the work is far more Eno than anything else – hardly cinematic in the conventional sense, and shaped nicely with help from Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois, both key collaborators in the decade. Some of the richer tracks almost preface a 4AD generation to come, but still have all the best Eno charms – and titles include "Under Stars", "The Secret Place", "Matta", "Signals", "An Ending (Ascent)", "Under Stars II", "Drift", "Silver Morning", "Deep Blue Day", "Weightless", "Always Returning", and "Stars". 2LP version features a complete bonus album titled For All Mankind – 11 more instrumentals packaged here with a remastered version of the Apollo album, and a booklet of notes!

Eddie HarrisSilver Cycles ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1969. Used ... $6.99
Sweet silver cycles from Eddie Harris – a wonderful late 60s album that features lots of lines on the electrified Varitone saxophone, mixed with cool contributions from a shifting lineup of soulful musicians! The set's one of Eddie's real classics from the Atlantic years – completely inventive, but never in a gimmicky way – and a really great bridge between late 60s modes of funk, jazz, and soul – at the same level he'd serve up more famously in his collaborations with Les McCann! There's a lot of that same energy here, but the vibe is even tighter – and Harris really blows us away with his great arrangements, which get a slight bit of help from Arif Mardin. Other players include Melvin Jackson on bass, Seldon Powell on reeds, and Joe Zawinul on keyboards – and titles include "Silver Cycles", "Electric Ballad", "Little Bit", "Free At Last", "Coltrane's View", "Electric Salad", "1974 Blues", and "Smoke Signals".

King Bruce & The Black BeatsGolden Highlife Classics ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1950s/1960s. Used ... $28.99
Raucous highlife from Ghana! In the late 40s bandleader and trumpeter King Bruce occasionally played in the Tempos, the legendary band led by ET Mensah, and by 1952 he formed the Black Beats to fulfill his own distinct vision, honing a more aggressive and looser take on the style. Although he was a huge fan of American swing as well as calypso, Bruce never forgot the Ghanaian traditions he grew up with – the Twi, Ewe, and Ga – and marvelously reconciled them with modern styles he was digging from across the pond. In particular, the wonderful horn arrangements here are appealingly loose and freewheeling – it's clear these cats dug jazz – with trumpet lines peppered with blue notes and wild growls that would make Bubber Miley blush. The later tracks here include some killer electric guitar lines and solos, quietly signaling the shift towards the instrument highlife would take in the 70s. Tracks include "Medaho Mao", "Aban Kaba", "Nantsew Yie", "Agodzi", and "Won Ma Menka". CD

Matthew ShippSymbol Systems ... CD
No More Records, 1995. Used ... $14.99
The first-ever solo album from Matthew Shipp – a set that came as quite a revelation back in the 90s, and one that still sounds incredibly solid all these many years later! Shipp reveals himself as a very fresh voice on his instrument – a musician who grew up in a generation already aware of the freedoms of Cecil Taylor and the European scene – but one who also has a sense of tone and structure that really set him apart – a mode that's as distinct for Shipp as the talents of Muhal Richard Abrams were to that musician, but with a much more personal approach – big ideas coming through smaller moments, which is what keeps the album's selection of 14 shorter tunes completely captivating all the way through. Titles include "Harmonic Oscillator", "Temperate Zone", "The Highway", "Algebraic Boogie", "Nerve Signals", "Dance Of The Blue Atoms", and "Bop Abyss". CD

Soul II SoulJazzie's Groove (Jazzie's 12 inch mix, alternative 12 inch mix, happy face/funky bass, piano groove) ... 12-inch
Virgin, 1989. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $3.99
A great single that signalled the return of pure funk to the charts. Jazzie B takes a classic James Brown-esque groove, filters it through some hip hop production, and comes up with this nice track that has a deep deep bottom, and a slow funky groove. Offered up here in a number of different mixes, the last two of which offer some nice bits for putting into a mix! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tangerine DreamOfficial Bootleg Series Vol 3 – Ford Auditorium, Detroit March 1977/Regent Theatre, Sydney February 1982 (4CD set) ... CD
Reactive (UK), 1977/1982. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99
Great live work from Tangerine Dream – a group who, by the midpoint of their career, arguably sounded even better in a concert setting than they did in the studio – often working with a stronger sense of darkness that hearkens back to their roots, with a mix of electronic elements that sound downright spooky in the larger space of a concert hall! Given the light shows pictured in the package, it must have been something to catch these guys in concert – as there's all sorts of odd corners and unusual inflections in the music, which would only have been even more mind-altering if your eyes were getting it at the same time. As with previous volumes, this set brings together two full shows – the first a performance in Detroit in 1977, with titles that include "Face Of The Earth", "Signals From Above", "Conjuration", "Patterns In The Ivy", "Cherokee Lane", "The Emerald Beyond", and "Moonlight" – the second done in Sydney in 1982, with the titles "Convention Of The 24", "White Eagle", "Ayers Majestic", "Logos", "Bondi Parade", "Mojave Plan", "Thermal Inversion", and "Midnight In Tula".

✨✧ VariousWorld Of Keith Haring – Influences & Connections – 1978 to 1984 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just a tribute to the legendary artist Keith Haring – as the collection's more of a portrait of the downtown New York scene in which Haring lived and worked – served up here as a fantastic blend of hip hop, street soul, and offbeat club tracks from the time! The music here is a great antidote to more familiar territory in the disco and 80s groove years – as many of these artists effortlessly combine stylistic modes with the same groundbreaking energy that Haring brought to his artwork – signaling the rise of a whole new generation, while also giving them a great soundtrack of grooves! The double-length package is wonderful – full of music that most folks might not expect together, but which really set the scene back at the start of the 80s – tracks that include "It's Music" by Damon Harris, "For The Same Man" by B Beat Girls, "Weekend (Larry Levan mix)" by Class Action, "Elephant Man" by The Girls, "Chuka Ja" by Adiche, "Danger" by Pylon, "Pak Man" by Jonzun Crew, "Bump & Grind It" by John Sex, "Jam Hot" by Johnny Dynell, "Over & Over (12" disco)" by Sylvester, "I Zimbra" by Talking Heads, "Sortie 134 (part 2)" by Art Zoyd, "Let's Do It" by Convertion, "Cut It Up High Priest" by Gray, "Love Money" by Funk Masters, "Change The Beat" by Fab 5 Freddy, "ET Boogie" by Extra T's, "Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, and "Jeffrey I Hear You" by The Girls.

✨✧ Rob BrownFrom Here To Hear ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's a bold sense of brilliance that signals the start of this album right from the very first note – maybe a quality that comes from the depth of leader Rob Brown's work on the alto, hitting here with maybe more of the fire of an avant tenor – or maybe a sound that comes from the overall cohesiveness of the group, which is resonant in deep tones that come from the work of Steve Swell on trombone, Chris Lightcap on bass, and Chad Taylor on drums! Resonance is the key element at play here – a that the quartet have of making soundwaves that are often tuneful, yet equally powerful in their displacement of space – never too free or noisy, and always with an inherent sense of structure – but very personal and free-thinking overall. Titles include "Hard Call", "Anticipation", "Lingering", "Strolling & Stumbling", and "Cautiously Hopeful". CD

Verve, 1960. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest sides to feature Diz's mid 50s format – a larger group than usual, an octet, with a more tightly arranged style that showed that he continued to develop as an artist long after the days of his early bop sides. The album's also noteworthy for demonstrating Dizzy's great talent for picking strong young talent – as the group features the writing and playing of Gigi Gryce and Benny Golson, plus work by Ray Bryant, Henry Coker, Tommy Bryant, and Charlie Persip. Tracks are short, but backed with that edgey energy that Gryce and Golson brought to their best work – and titles include "Blues After Dark", "Night At Tony's", "Smoke Signals", and "Shabozz".
