✨✧ Oya SextettOya Sextett Live (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Signal & Sound (Netherlands), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

Donald Byrd & Gigi GryceComplete Jazz Lab Studio Sessions Vol 1 ... CD
Columbia/Lonehill (Spain), 1957. Used ... $9.99
Incredible work from the team of Donald Byrd and Gigi Gryce – crisp modern jazz, filled with soul, and never failing to swing! During the time of these recordings, Gryce was one hell of an arranger – with a tight ensemble approach that worked magic in a small combo setting. He was also a tremendous alto player – with a tone that was unlike any other musician at the time, magically sharp, with a sound that always seemed to inspire a great deal of energy from his bandmates. He gets plenty of that here from trumpeter Donald Byrd – sounding better on these sides than on most of his other 50s recordings – thanks also to some great accompanists, who include Tommy Flanagan, Wendell Marshall, and Art Taylor. Some tunes feature additional horn work from players that include Benny Powell, Julius Watkins, and Sahib Shihab. Volume 1 in this Lonehill's Complete Jazz Lab Studio Sessions mixes 13 tracks originally released on the LPs Jazz Lab, Modern Jazz Perspective, plus mutual tracks with the rare compilation Jazz Omnibus. Titles include "Nica's Tempo", "Smoke Signal", "Over The Rainbow", "Sans Souci", "Speculation", "Stablemates", "Steppin Out", "Social Call", "Satellite", "An Evening In Casablanca" and more! CD

Gogo PenguinGogo Penguin ... CD
Blue Note, 2020. New Copy ... $12.99
The album's got an understated cover, but the set more than lives up to the sort of crackling sounds we've been loving from Gogo Penguin in recent years – that UK trio with a way of really remaking the interplay between piano, bass, and drums! If anything, the bass and drums seem a lot more upfront in the mix than on old school piano records – sometimes driving the sound of the group with a very chunky rhythm, sometimes still crafting this more subtle soundshaping – but at a level that really sets the piano free on these long, lyrical runs! Yet the piano can also be pretty darn rhythmic, but in ways that are maybe more cyclical, especially when compared to the drums – all of which makes for a very unique sound on titles that include "Signal In The Noise", "Atomised", "Embers", "Totem", "Kora", "Don't Go", and "F Maj Pixie".

Oscar PettifordDeep Passion ... CD
ABC (Japan), 1956/1957. Used ... $28.99
A really wonderful little chapter in the rich, and all-too-short career of bassist Oscar Pettiford – larger group recordings done for ABC in the mid 50s! The sessions show Pettiford to be surprisingly great at such a format – leading a group through Gigi Gryce arrangements that have a nice modern jazz take on earlier bop themes of the 50s. Gryce himself plays alto on the session, and other players include Jerome Richardson, Benny Golson, Art Farmer, Kenny Dorham, Jimmy Cleveland, Al Grey, Tommy Flanagan, and Lucky Thompson. The CD seems to include material from both Pettiford sessions for ABC – for a total of 17 tracks that include "Two French Fries", "Perdido", "Speculation", "Sunrise Sunset", "Smoke Signal", "Deep Passion", "Nica's Tempo", "Not So Sleepy", "Little Niles", and "Seabreeze".

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsSoul Limbo ... LP
Stax, 1968. Poor ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very hip work from Booker T & The MGs – an album that has them standing out under a pier by the ocean on the cover – clearly a long way from their Memphis roots! The sound here still has a good dose of those roots, though – but it also shows them picking up some hipper rhythmic touches too – heard most famously on the title tune, "Soul Limbo" – which is a great number to signal the more open styles in the group's approach. Other hip originals on the set include "Heads Or Tails" and "Over Easy" – and the record also sports some great covers that include "La La Means I Love You", "Eleanor Rigby", and "Hang Em High", which they do in a nice western vein!

✨✧ Red RodneyRed Rodney – Fiery ... CD
Savoy/Denon, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful set of hardbop tracks from this vastly underrated trumpeter! The session was originally recorded for the Signal label, but appears here in a Savoy issue, put out a few years after the original. Rodney is in perfect form here, hitting his stride during this comeback period, and playing in a group with other mature boppers like Tommy Flanagan, Ira Sullivan, Oscar Pettiford, and Philly Joe Jones. Tracks are nice and long, and titles include "Ubas", "Box 2000", "Red Arrow", and "Star Eyes". CD

✨✧ Gigi GryceDoin The Gigi ... CD
Uptown, 1957/1960/1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of rare work from reedman Gigi Gryce – one of the most important talents of the 50s, presented here in a range of unissued sides from the best years of his career! The CD's overflowing with amazing material – some live dates, and some unissued studio material as well – all done in that perfect second period style of Gryce's career – the point when he moved past the tighter modernism of early years, and really opened up with this amazingly soulful sound! His alto work is impeccable – unlike anyone else we can think of on the instrument – very focused and crisp, yet wonderfully warm and human as well – with support on most numbers from excellent sidemen Richard Williams on trumpet and Richard Wyands on piano – two players who always seemed to drive Gigi onto new heights! Material includes 4 tracks from a 1961 Birdland broadcast – also with Eddie Costa on on vibes – then 2 more from a 1961 recording session also with Costa. Then there's 6 more cuts from an unissued 1960 session – and all three of these feature Williams and Wyands. The set's rounded out by material from a 1957 Signal Records party – featuring a group with Cecil Payne on baritone sax and Duke Jordan on piano. All cuts have been lovingly remastered, with the usual great sound we love from Uptown – and the set features 70 minutes of music, 18 tracks that include "Blues In Bloom", "Down Home", "A Premonition Of You", "Dancing The Gigi", "I'll Walk Alone", "Sonor", "All The Things You Are", "Man Of Moods", and "Movin".

✨✧ Pseudo Slang & PawcutWanderverse ... LP
Baby Steps, 2020. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Laidback beats with plenty of boom – just the right sort of mellow setting to allow the rhymes to flow in the best way possible – core lyrics from Emcee Sick, with contributions from Cudtry Cadillac, Dheema, and Jon Blazini! There's a nicely jazzy current – almost in an early 90s Tribe Called Quest style, but more individual, as the best instrumental touches are live, and less tied to the historical references that samples might provide. Both the rhythms and lyrics are nicely straightforward – again a nice sort of throwback, but hardly retro at all – on titles that include "Pstabull", "Finesseful", "Basso", "Indestructible 92", "Big Bad Signal", "Anotha Monday Nite", and "Wanderverse".

✨✧ BrainiacElectro Shock For President EP ... LP
Touch & Go, 1997. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Percussions Of StrasbourgSignals ... LP
Limelight, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Cool album of avant garde percussion pieces, played by a European sextet dedicated to playing this kind of stuff. The showpiece of the album is their own composition "Signals", which spans all of side two and which has some cool noisy percussion bits. There's two other pieces on the album, and they've both got a similar feel – that particular sort of 20th century percussion sound that Limelight and Nonesuch were recording a lot of at this point.

Brides Of FunkensteinComplete Atlantic Records – Funk Or Walk/Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 18.98
A prime pair of late 70s classics on Atlantic Records from Brides Of Funkenstein – a funky female group from the P-Funk empire – back-to-back with bonus tracks! The Brides are one of George Clinton's few girl-based projects of the 70s, and a group who are markedly more funk-based than Parlet! Vocals are by the duo of Lyn Mabry and Dawn Silva – but the main sound of the set comes from the tightly crafted rhythms served up by a cast of well-known P-Funk regulars – all hitting a spaciously snapping vibe that reminds us a lot of the best energy of late 70s Parliament albums on Casablanca! The tracks on Funk Or Walk, which is on Disc 1 here, are longish, but nicely focused – with less of the disco that you might expect, and more of a slow-stepping groove overall! Titles include "Disco To Go", "War Ship To Touchante", "Just Like You", "When You're Gone", "Amorous", "Nappy", and "Birdie". 2 bonus tracks: single mixes of "Amorous" and "War Ship Touchante". Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy is tremendously soulful session – with plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love". The 2 Part single version of the title track is here as a bonus track. CD

Avishai CohenInto The Silence ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2016. Used ... $11.99
No silence here – and instead just a warm flow of sound from the trumpet of Avishai Cohen, and his well-matched group – a quintet that also features Bill McHenry on tenor, Yonathan Avishai on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Nasheet Waits on drums – all players who hit the same sort of laidback, ECM-ish vibe that Cohen's going for on the record! Avishai has this very compressed, economic way of handling his horn – never too overblown, but with this subtle power that kind of swells up slowly, then surprises you – a mode that's sometimes signaled by the piano, but which also sometimes leads first, then pulls the piano in its wake. McHenry finds a place to balance between the two, and titles include "Life & Death", "Dream Like A Child", "Into The Silence", "Quiescence", and "Behind The Broken Glass". CD

Brian EnoApollo – Atmospheres & Soundtracks (2LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
EG/Capitol, 1983. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 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!

Ennio MorriconeIl Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo (The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1966. Used ... $16.99
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "Insequimento", "Il Deserto", "Il Bandito Monco", "Fine Di Una Spia", "Marcetta", "Padre Ramirez", and "La Carrozza Dei Fantasmi". CD

Reactive (UK), 1977/1982. New Copy 4CD ... $23.99
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".

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".

Java Sounds/Hive Mind (UK), 2007/2020. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully expanded take on the music of Idjah Hadidjah – the legendary Indonesian singer who first came to the ears of most of us on a famous late 80s album for the Nonesuch label! This set follows the mode of that one – in that Hadidjah uses her great range and very expressive style next to a smaller, leaner version of a gamelan ensemble – snaking in between the bells, gongs, and percussion with this amazing quality that's unlike anything else we can think of – and really expanding the normal instrumental mode of the gamelan with the addition of voice! Titles include "Senggot", "Sanga", "Hiji Catetan", "Sinyur", "Tawis Soca", and "Tablo Kasmaran Naek Gendu". Plus, this package also features a bonus LP – which features reworks of the original music by a host of different contemporary producers – some of which take the core material to very abstract territory, with talents that include Ultrabillions, Sara Belle Reid, Lightbath, Bergsonist, Signals Under Tests, and Bana Haffar.

No Limit/Capitol, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Snoop Dogg's last and best album for No Limit – a turn of the millennium effort that stands a a lot stronger in retrospect, and certainly signaling the coming resurgence Snoop would carrying pretty strongly in the new decade. After Death Row hit hard times and Snoop found into the No Limit camp, things didn't seem to be working so well, but inch by inch, Snoop seized more creative control and by this one, we're back to the Snoop we know and love. A bit odd looking back on it, but thankfully much of the record is produced by Dr Dre, with a few cuts from Timbaland, Jelly Roll, & Scott Storch. Includes guest spots for Nate Dogg, Eve, Lady Of Rage, Ice Cube, & KoKane, – and tracks include "Hennesey N Buddah", "Snoop Dogg (What's My Name Pt 2)", "Wrong Idea", "Set It Off", "Ready 2 Ryde", "Loosen Control", "Y'all Gone Miss Me", "Stacey Adams", and "I Can't Swim".
