✨✧ Captain SkyConcerned Party No 1 ... LP
TEC, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums by this super-stylized funkster from Chicago! Captain Sky followed very firmly in the P-Funk footsteps – using lots of bass and rocking rhythms to carve out a space-themed groove that had plenty of cool touches! And more than that, the Captain's style was equally well suited to the emerging 80s groove era – and worked well with a nice dose of slight electric touches – not totally wikki-wikki, but certainly setting the stage for that sound! Titles include "Elementary School Of Funk", "Sir Jam A Lot", "Trace Of Love", "Bubble Gum (I Chewz You)", "Tootsie Rock", and "Let Me Come Inside". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is great, but the cover has a partially stuck gatefold, light staining, & waviness - due to moisture.)

✨✧ Captain SkyPop Goes The Captain ... LP
AVI, 1979. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second smoking album from Captain Sky – a Windy City funk legend, and one who's cut from some of the same cloth as Bootsy Collins or Rick James! Like both of those artists, the Captain's a pretty imposing figure, with a bit of future flash to his looks – and while he uses lots of the basslines that might tie him to Bootsy and the P-Funk universe, he's also got a groove that mixes in some of the more sophisticated modes you'd know from the Chicago scene at the time! There's almost a late Curtom feel to the record – tight funk, a bit faster than early in the decade, but still not really disco – and with some mellow midtempo tracks that balance things out beautifully – and really show Sky evolving past the style of his first record. Tracks include "Moonchild", "Fearless", "Cream & Sugar", "Rebirth", "Hero", "Double You SKY", and "Ker-Runch". LP, Vinyl record album

AVI/Past Due, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A legendary funk set from late 70s Chicago – served up by our own Captain Sky, aka Daryl Cameron – an imposing figure who often worked in the same space-themed territory as the P-Funk empire in the mid 70s! The difference here, though, is that Cameron wrote, produced, and put the whole thing together himself – with help from a few friends in the studio – making the album a great homegrown attempt to rival the strength of the bigger funk ensembles of the period – something The Captain and crew do pretty darn well throughout! There's lots of heavy bass on the set – a strong precursor of modes to come – mixed with riffing guitar, sweet keyboards, and plenty of tight rhythms – on cuts that include the famous sample cut "Super Sporm" – a killer extended track with a great conga break, and a tight old school sample sound – plus "Now That I Have You", "Saturday Night Move-Ease", "Wonder Worm" and "Can't Stop Now".

✨✧ Clear Blue SkyClear Blue Sky ... CD
Vertigo/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An insanely ripping little record – one that comes on with all the raw power of the heaviest work by Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin at the time – even though these guys never hit that sort of fame! The group's a trio with an incredibly deft touch – able to make the simple combination of guitar, bass, and drums explode in wonderfully fresh ways – with some quick-changes that really leave us breathless, and really show off their amazing talents – but never in a way that's overdone at all – as these guys have more of the bottom-end, blues-inspired appeal of Zeppelin during their early years. Vocals are by guitarist John Simms, who's also got a wild way of singing – and titles include "The Rocket Ride", "I'm Comin Home", "Birdcatcher", "My Heaven", "You Mystify", and "Tool Of My Trade".

Cryan ShamesA Scratch In The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
A great step forward for The Cryan Shames – a group who started their career singing other peoples' music, but who emerge here with some great songs of their own! There's a brilliant Sunshine Pop feel to the whole record – but there's also some garagey elements that reflect the group's presence on the Chicago scene of the 60s – not a Dunwich quality entirely, but not far off either! That edge makes the psych moments really sparkle nicely – with a more sinister feel than anyone might have guessed from the group on their initial outing. A few moments echo Brit invasion modes – but with a trippier style that's a bit like Chad & Jeremy on Columbia – and titles include "Cobblestone Road", "The Sailing Ship", "A Carol For Lorelei", "Sunshine Psalm", "Mr Unreliable", and "In The Cafe".

Miles DavisMiles In The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint- ... $69.99
Miles Davis makes the electric transition – in this groundbreaking set from the late 60s! The classic mid 60s quintet is still in place here – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – but the sound is looser, freer, and more spacious – often echoing some of the rhythmic concerns that would dominate Miles' music in a few more years, but without as much of a bombastic sound. Williams' drums are amazing – fierce one minute, then fading the next – and Herbie Hancock's use of both electric and acoustic piano really points at his own directions in coming years. George Benson plays one one track – "Paraphernalia" – introducing electric guitar to the Miles Davis sound – and other long tracks on the set include "Stuff", "Black Comedy", and "Country Son". LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Evans & Jaco PastoriusLive Under The Sky – Tokyo 1984 ... CD
Hi Hat, 1984. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99
A mighty pairing of giants – coming together here in a mighty live set that has both musicians at the height of their powers! At some level, the vibe here is that of Evans during his electric ensemble years – especially given some of the players in the group – but the presence of bassist Jaco Pastorius in the lead really sharpens the edges, and almost creates some of the bolder, more powerful sounds you'd expect from Weather Report, or maybe even the Miles Davis electric groups of the 70s! Gil plays keyboards throughout – and other musicians include Hiram Bullock on guitar, George Adams and Chris Hunter on saxes, Lew Soloff and Hannibal Marvin Peterson on trumpets, Pete Levin on electronics, and a surprising appearance by the avant giant George Lewis on trombone. Titles include "Up From The Skies", "Stone Free", "Variations On THe Misery", "Dania", "Jaco Solo/Goodbye Porkpie Hat", and "Here Comes De Honey Man/Eleven". CD

Jimi HendrixBoth Sides Of The Sky ... LP
Legacy, Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
Mindblowing lost work from Jimi Hendrix – studio tracks from the late 60s that were never issued at the time, brought together to make a completely sublime full length set! The package is way hipper and stronger than you might imagine – not studio snippets or replayed outtakes – but instead some strong full longs, and rare studio recordings of material that Jimi had mostly given the world in a live setting – all recorded between 1968 and 1970, and almost all issued here for the first time ever! The core group on most tracks is the trio with Buddy Miles on drums and Billy Cox on bass – but the tracks also feature some surprising guests – including a bit of organ and vocals from Stephen Stills, tenor from Lonnie Youngblood, and guitar from Johnny Winter. One tracks features Jimi just duetting with Miles on drums – and there's another that even features Hendrix on vibes. Titles include "Sweet Angel", "$20 Fine", "Power Of Soul", "Jungle", "Cherokee Mist", "Send My Love To Linda", "Woodstock", "Mannish Boy", "Lover Man", "Hear My Train A Comin", "Georgia Blues", "Stepping Stone", and "Things I Used To Do".

Dave Rempis/Avreeayl RaBennu (rippled sky swirl vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Aerophonic, 2021. New Copy ... $20.99
We always love the work of saxophonist Dave Rempis in a relatively spare setting – and here, he sounds even more amazing than usual – working next to drummer Avreeayl Ra, in a mode that's got a wonderfully organic, spontaneous quality – one that maybe makes for some of the most spiritual work we've ever heard from Rempis on record! Dave blows both tenor and alto – and Ra's work on drums is often very open and loose – still rhythmic mostly, but occasionally freer – and especially captivating at points when he uses mallets on the toms, and picks up other percussion instruments too – giving Rempis this earthy backdrop that really opens up new textures and tones in his horn! Wonderful stuff throughout – and titles include "Divisions Of Time", "Fire & Ash", and "Persea". LP, Vinyl record album

An interesting project from Elliott Sharp – a set that mixes his older downtown sounds with some surprising rootsy elements – all in a blend that really helps his music stretch out strongly! Sharp's guitar work is still incredible – whether arch and arty, or acoustic and bluesy – and the album features a mix of instrumental workouts and vocal numbers – with lyrics sung by Tracie Morris, Eric Mingus, and Joe Mardin. Hubert Sumlin plays some guest guitar, and Curtis Fowlkes adds a bit of trombone – and titles include "Fade To Noir", "This House Is For Sale", "Endless Path", "Banking Blues", "I Blame You", and "Off The Hook".

A well-remembered live set that's way more than just a record that relies on its "tribute" status to get it across – and instead a really smoking set that's as much a standout moment for reedmen Wayne Shorter and Dave Liebman as it is a tribute to John Coltrane! In fact, the whole thing may be much more Shorter and Liebman-like than you'd expect – with really creative, compelling, and individual work from both players on soprano sax – stretched out over a trio of Coltrane tunes that take on very fresh interpretation on the record – in a quintet that also includes Richie Beirach on piano, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Titles include "After The Rain/Naima", "India/Impressions", and "Mr PC". LP, Vinyl record album

Norma TanegaI'm The Sky – Studio & Demo Recordings 1964 to 1971 ... LP
Anthology, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $36.99 38.99
The first-ever full look at the unique musical talents of Norma Tanega – an artist known for one big crossover hit in the 60s, but who had a much deeper legacy in folk and protest music! Norma was both part of the Greenwich Village scene in the early 60s, and quickly apart from it – both in terms of her identity and her musical styles – which were way more than just mainstream folk, and opened up into a range of topics and themes that are very different than just about anyone else in her generation! The instrumentation is way more than folk, too – as there's some nicely trippy rock touches on the tracks at times – served up here in an expanded collection that features material from the albums Walkin My Cat Named Dog and I Don't Think It Will Hurt If You Smile – plus unreleased material, demos, and other rare tracks too. The massive 27 track set features very detailed notes on Norma's history and unique place in music – plus lots of rare images too. LP, Vinyl record album

Hidefumi Toki with Mikio MasudaSky View (SHMCD pressing) ... CD
Frasco/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $18.99 23.99 About May 25, 2022
Hidefumi Toki is easily one of our favorite Japanese players from the 70s – an excellent alto saxophonist who always comes across with a sense of soul that's even deeper than his instrument! Toki has a way of putting together a session that's totally great – relaxed and open, with a lot of searching energy in his horn, yet never in a way that's ever forced or too outside – just kind of an organic exploration of the alto tones, but at a level that's much more common for 70s spiritual tenor players. This album's a real treasure from his Japanese catalog of the time – and features some very sweet keyboards from Mikio Masuda, plus rhythm from Ikeda Yoshio on bass and Steve Jackson on drums – on longish tracks that include "Sky View", "Rain Doctor", "Taro's Birthday", "I Love You Porgy", and "Let's Get Together".

Hi Hat, 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A searing live performance, and one that's even more of an all-star session than you'd guess from the cover! The date was recorded in front of a large festival in Japan – and in addition to piano and a host of great keyboards from Herbie Hancock, and plenty of guitar solos from Carlos Santana, the set also features Wynton Marsalis on trumpet, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – plus a trio of percussionists behind them! The whole thing is a great reminder that when Carlos Santana wants, he can take on just about any style out there – and the mix of Herbie's keys with his guitar is almost in the spirit of the work that Larry Young brought to Santana. Titles include "Saturday Night", "A Quick Sketch", "Parade", "Europa", "Round Midnight", and a great medley of "Watermelon Man/Evil Ways" – plus a few untitled cuts too! LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note (Japan), 1970s/1990s/2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest sets we've ever heard from Blue Note – a mix of classic 70s work by The Mizell Brothers, plus 90s hip hop tracks – all handled by DJ Muro with a really laidback, open-ended groove! Muro really gets the genius of the Mizells during these years, and hardly tries to tamper with their work – instead letting the tunes flow out with that spacious, righteous style that Larry and Fonce used to create some of the hippest jazz funk ever – true treasures that made Blue Note in the 70s a really special place! Alongside famous cuts on the label, Muro's also thrown in a few Mizell-produced soul tracks for Capitol too – plus choice hip hop cuts that famously sample the originals, and keep the jazzy vibe strongly intact. The mix features 25 tracks in all – including "Please Set Me At Ease" and "Blacks & Blues" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Looking At The Front Door" by Main Source, "Peace Of Mind" and "Reason To Survive" by Rance Allen, "Footprints" and "Butter" by Tribe Called Quest, "Do It Good" and "World Spin" by Taste Of Honey, "Lansana's Priestess" and "Wind Parade" by Donald Byrd, "Love Ballad" and "Music Is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz, "Stepping Into Tomorrow" by Madlib, "You & The Music" by Donald Byrd, "Buck Em Down" by Black Moon, "Blowing Down" by Digable Planets, and "Jasper Country Man" by Bobbi Humphrey.

Sublime work from the Temptations – still recording here with Norman Whitfield, who's really opening up his bag on most of the record – and taking the group into expansive territory that was barely hinted at in their early work! The album's got some incredible tracks in the Whitfield mode – long numbers that build and build, opening up into long righteous soul grooves with more than a bit of funk – a hard-rolling style that the harmonies really work wonderfully to match – giving Motown some of its most powerful sounds of the time! The best cuts include the album's 9 minute reading of "Love Can Be Anything", it's 12 minute version of "Smiling Faces Sometimes", and the cuts "Just My Imagination", "Man", and "Ugena Za Ulimwengu".

✨✧ VSOP (Herbie Hancock, et al)Live Under The Sky ... CD
Columbia (France), 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Originally a Japanese-only session – and one of the best records ever by this legendary 70s jazz super-group – a real return to acoustic jazz roots, with a lineup that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! There's a lot of the sorts of energy that some of the players created when working with Miles Davis the decade before – but shaped with some of the soulfulness that Freddie Hubbard unleashed during his early CTI years – very welcome here, at a time when Hubbard was getting more electric touches on some of his albums. Herbie's great too – and the album ranks with his other great Japanese-only albums of the decade – really given a sense of creative freedom that didn't always happen with the more commercial drive that Columbia was pushing in the US. The whole thing's filled with lots of long modal numbers, strong soloing all around, and a top-shelf presentation of the material – on titles that include "Tear Drop", "Fragile", "One Of Another Kind", "Papa Oriente", "Domo", and "Pee Wee".

The sound here still has some nice rough edges – not as polished as later Passport work – an almost proggish influence on the keyboards at times, but a bit tighter at other moments. The core of the album is long snakey reed work from Klaus on tenor, flute, and soprano sax – plus keyboards played by himself and Hendrik Schaper. Tracks are somewhat spacey, but sometimes funky too – and titles include "Mandrake", "Sky Blue", "Ataraxia", "Loco Motive", "The Secret", and "Louisiana". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ Art HiraharaOpen Sky ... CD
Posi tone, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pianist Art Hirahara is one of our favorite contemporary players on his instrument of late – a musician with a bold sense of tone and color, a very fresh approach to structure, and a great ear for a tune – which means this record is filled with originals by Art, and not the more familiar well-worn classics! Hirahara's work here is a great reminder that a jazz musician doesn't need to go outside to make their voice known – as Art's very original right from the very first note – given superb accompaniment from Boris Kozlov on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums – each of whom contribute a song to the date too. The set also features guest work from Nicole Glover on tenor and soprano on three tracks, and Behn Gillece on vibes on one more – on titles that include "Open Sky", "Peony", "Groundswell", "Inimitably Mr B", "Nightfall", "Weathered The Storm", and "Together Apart".

✨✧ VSOP (Herbie Hancock, et al)Live Under The Sky (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Originally a Japanese-only session – and one of the best records ever by this legendary 70s jazz super-group – a real return to acoustic jazz roots, with a lineup that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! There's a lot of the sorts of energy that some of the players created when working with Miles Davis the decade before – but shaped with some of the soulfulness that Freddie Hubbard unleashed during his early CTI years – very welcome here, at a time when Hubbard was getting more electric touches on some of his albums. Herbie's great too – and the album ranks with his other great Japanese-only albums of the decade – really given a sense of creative freedom that didn't always happen with the more commercial drive that Columbia was pushing in the US. The whole thing's filled with lots of long modal numbers, strong soloing all around, and a top-shelf presentation of the material – on titles that include "Tear Drop", "Fragile", "One Of Another Kind", "Papa Oriente", "Domo", and "Pee Wee". This 2CD edition features 11 never-issued bonus tracks! CD

ClusterCuriosum ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the last Cluster albums recorded for a long stretch – and a set that maybe makes us wonder what Moebius and Roedelius would have done, had they kept on working in this direction! It's almost as if the groundbreaking duo were listening to the creations of the younger generation that they had influenced – particularly the German new wave rising up around them – and they reach for slightly darker modes here, with some edgier electronics that come off almost in tuneful industrial territory – and we mean that before the "dance" was added to that style a few years later. Tracks include "Oh Odessa", "Proantipro", "Seltsame Gegend", "Helle Melange", "Tristran In Der Bar", "Charlic", and "Ufer". LP, Vinyl record album

Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
Beautiful spare electronics, art rock, and even a little bit of avant funk from the Cluster team of Rodelius & Moebius! Grosses Wasser is an underrated effort from a combo that's been consistently underappreciated – one of the non-Eno collaborations, and showing that Cluster is a formidable artistic force with and without the aforementioned genius. Most tracks start out on the spare tip and slowly build in mood – utilizing electronics and ambient atmosphere. It has some dark touches, but is playful at times, too, and this is a vital piece of the Cluster puzzle. featuring the tracks "Avanti", "Prothese", "Isodea", "Manchmal", and "Grosses Wasser".

RoedeliusDiary Of The Unforgotten – Selbstportrait VI ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
Really lovely work from German music pioneer Hans Joachim Roedelius – tracks recorded in the 70s, but unissued until the time of this album from 1990 – and very much in the best spirit of his groundbreaking work on the Sky Records label! If you know the other "self portrait" records from Hans, you'll know what to expect here – spare, slow-building sounds that are heavy on electronics, mixed with a bit of piano – and used in a very open, organic way – so that Roedelius is often moving in the same territory as the Ambient albums by his sometime-collaborator Brian Eno. Includes "Remember Those Days", "Frohgemut", "Du", "Manono", "Ampfer", "Weg", "Diary Of The Unforgotten", and "Hommage A Forst". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cluster & EnoCluster & Eno ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key meeting between 2 important forces in electronic music in the 70s – the increasingly-experimental Brian Eno and the Cluster team of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius! Unlike the trio's other album, this one's an all-instrumental affair – one that takes the atmospherics of Cluster, and gives them a darker Eno edge – in a way that gives the record an incredibly moody feel, and predates endless electronic work to come in the 90s. There's a spare brilliance here that's almost indescribable – songs that are hardly songs, sounds that slide back into silence – but somehow the whole thing's got a power that's far beyond the sum of its very small parts. Titles include "Wehrmut", "Fur Luise", "One", and "Die Bunge". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Marcia GriffithsNaturally/Steppin ... CD
Sky Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of albums from Marcia Griffiths – the well-titled queen of reggae at the end of the 70s! First up is Naturally, a fantastic album from Marcia Griffiths – very much the kind of material that made her one of the best female singers on the Jamaican scene in the 70s! The set's got a soulful sparkle that's undeniable – music that could have, should have (if things were right) gotten Marcia much bigger fame in the US crossover market of the time – as these songs work equally well as laidback soul numbers, even with strong reggae rhythms – thanks to the warmth and class of the vocals! A number of tracks are originals, and titles include "Dreamland", "Tell Me Now", "Melody Life", "Survival Is The Game", "Feel Like Jumping", "Mark My Word", and "Truly". Steppin features Marcia Griffiths at the height of her powers – singing wonderfully and soulfully, in a style that almost transcends her Jamaican roots! While other reggae singers of the period were maybe polishing things up a bit, to reach larger commercial fame, Griffiths seems to be stepping back more into soul, while still working with familiar Kingston rhythms – crafting this mode that's completely compelling, and which has as much personal feeling as some of the more powerful social themes of the roots era. Errol Brown recorded the tracks at Treasure Isle, and titles include "It's Impossible", "Steppin Out Of Babylon", "Where Were Why", "Why There Is No Love", "Give & You Get", and "I'm Hurting Inside".

✨✧ Dan HartmanRelight My Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Sky/Hot Shot (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning disco classic from Dan Hartman – maybe an unlikely talent for the dancefloors, given his image on the cover – but an artist who definitely went onto shape the sound of the clubs at the end of the 70s! The album's got the Hartman groove really hitting hard, and right on the money – a tightly compressed approach to disco that really lays heavily on the hooks – in a style that's similar to where Peter Brown was going at the time, with a similar compressed sensibility that gets past any of the fluff that was drowning others in the disco generation! In fact, it could well be argued that the approach here really helps focus a dancefloor sound towards the modes of the 80s – while still allowing for the fluid soul of the disco years too – a style that's summed up perfectly in the album's extended classic "Vertigo/Relight My Fire", which features famous vocals by Loleatta Holloway! Other titles are all sweet too – and include "Free Ride", "I Love Makin Music", "Just For Fun", "Love Strong", and "Hands Down". CD

✨✧ Moebius & PlankRastakraut Pasta ... LP
Sky (Germany), 1979. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
The first collaboration between Dieter Moebius and Conny Plank – and one of the best! The pair come together here in modes that are a lot more playful than some of the other German projects of this nature at the time – not as spare and sensitive as some of the others, and with a bolder sense of rhythm, and willingness to drop lots of odd elements into the mix – a style that almost makes the record come across with similar tones to the Brian Eno/David Byrne collaborations of the early 80s! Each tune has a basic structure, and a few key elements – fuzzy guitar, odd electronics, offbeat rhythms – and they each state their existence quickly, laying out a basic concept right away, then playing with it in cool ways as the tunes roll on. Apart from some found spoken bits, the whole thing's instrumental – and titles include "News", "Feedback 66", "Landebahn", "Solar Plexus", "Two Oldtimers", and "Missi Cacadou". LP, Vinyl record album

Sky Disc/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost harmony soul treasure – by an obscure family group from the Newark scene! The Family Circle have a fantastic style that mixes together sweet and deep soul styles into a darkly tinged approach that we'd rank with the best harmony soul of the early 70s – similar to work from bigger New Jersey groups, like The Moments or Whatnauts – but with an interesting twist too, given the mix of male and female vocals.. Nearly every track on the album is an original tune – conducted with baroque arrangements by George Andrews, and delivered with a near-perfect approach that makes this album a real treasure all the way through – not a soul record that's great because it's rare, but just a great album all the way through. Titles include "Change", "If You Really Want To Make It", "Loving You Makes The World Go Round", "I Hope You Really Love Me", "Mariya", and "La La So Lucky". CD

AirtoTouching You, Touching Me ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1979. Used ... $34.99
One of Airto's most polished records, and an album that we've really grown to love over the years! There's a pretty strong modern soul/R&B component to the album – but at the core, there's still a strong feeling for Brazilian rhythms, and the record's got a wonderfully warm Brazilian fusion component. Marcos Valle arranged many of the tracks with Airto, and the record's similar to some of his excellent R&B-ish work from the early 80s, particularly the stuff he did after working with Leon Ware. Great players and singers on the sessions, too – including George Duke, Herb Alpert, Flora Purim and The Sweet Inspirations. Tracks include "Heartbeat", "Amajour", "Partido Alto", "Open Space", "Tempos Atras", and "And Then We Touched The Sky". CD

Lorez AlexandriaThis Is Lorez/Lorez Sings Pres ... CD
King/BGP (UK), 1957. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible early work from Lorez Alexandria – the kind of albums that instantly set her apart from other singers of the 50s, reissued here properly for the first time in years! On This Is Lorez, the singer is working with sublime small combo backings from the group of pianist King Fleming – an unusual Chicago ensemble that includes Wilber Wynn on guitar, Ronald Wilson on flute and oboe, Vernel Fournier on drums, and Audrey Jones on bongos – a musical lineup that brings in a different sort of sophistication to the record, shading tunes with moody colors on flute and oboe that perfectly support Alexandria's soulful and sensitive interpretations of the tunes. The whole thing is pure genius, and a key look at the new levels of sophistication that were bubbling everywhere on the Chicago scene during the years of Jamal and Sun Ra. Lorez Sings Pres follows in a very similar mode – with backing by a Chicago group that again includes King Fleming piano, plus Charles Stepney on vibes, Paul Serrano on trumpet, and Vernel Fournier on drums – an extremely hip lineup that makes the record far more than just the Lester Young tribute promised in the title! But despite the instrumentalists, the real star on all sides is Alexandria – who sings with dark tones and deep colors that go far beyond conventional jazz vocals – all carried off with that slightly breathy mode that was one more unique aspect of her work! CD features all tracks from both albums – a total of 22 titles that include "Snowstorm", "I'm Glad There Is You", "The Sky Is Crying", "I'm Making Believe", "Necessity", "Penthouse Serenade", "DB Blues", "This Year's Kisses", "Easy Living", "No Eyes Blues", "Jumping With Symphony Sid", and a key early reading of "Baltimore Oriole".

A really powerful solo album from JD Allen – maybe the first we've ever heard from the tenor saxophonist, and a set that's got a very different vibe than some of his recent outings with groups! Allen recorded the music during the height of lockdown in 2020, at a time when he'd had to step back from performing live and collaborating with others – a moment he used to get back to basics on his instrument, and begin to re-explore all the things that first made being a saxophonist so important to him. There's definitely a sense of isolation and melancholy here – as you might expect – but there's also a feeling of hope and new inspiration, a quiet message from a dark time that's great to have on record. Titles include "Nyla's Sky", "Maude", "OTR", "Vernetta", "Queen City", "Gem & Eye", "Kristian With A K", and "Wildwood Flower". CD

MGM/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99 65.99
A fantastic package of work from The Animals – all their great second chapter albums for MGM, offered up here with bonus tracks too! First up is Winds Of Change, presented in both stereo and mono mixes – one of The Animals' most psychedelic outings ever – and also a bit funky at times too! Production by Tom Wilson is really great – echoey at most moments, with a kind of "flash" and shimmer around the drums that really spaces things out, and almost gives a Velvets sort of feel to the proceedings. The group's bluesier roots are still in place at times – but these have also been tripped-out and abstracted too, in modes that are a few years ahead of other blues rock combos on the rise. Titles include "It's All Meat", "Winds Of Change", "Poem By The Sea", "Yes I Am Experienced", "Hotel Hell", "San Franciscan Nights", and "Man Woman". Next is Twain Shall Meet – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". Every One Of Us is a real gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group – in a blend of spacey sounds, gentle folksy moments, and some of the rougher tones of previous MGM records. Many titles were written only by Burdon – a bit of a change from before – and showcase an increased use of acoustic guitar alongside his bleak vocals. Titles include "The Immigrant Lad", "Year Of The Guru", "Serenade To A Sweet Lady", "White Houses", "New York 1963/America 1968", and "Uppers & Downers". Next is Love Is – a fantastic double-length set from The Animals – recorded in LA in the late 60s, and with plenty of great Sunset Strip influences in the mix! The band here is different than before – with Zoot Money handling both organ and piano, plus a bit of vocals, and Andy Summers joining in on guitar – and production is by the group itself, who shake off some of the trippier styles of previous records, and almost go for a "live in studio" sort of sound! There's a confluence of styles here that's really great – some of the blues of the group's roots, bits of Eric Burdon's growing love of soul, and some fuzzier touches as well. Some tracks are quite long jams, and titles include "Gemini", "Madman", "As The Years Go Passing By", "To Love Somebody", and "I'm An Animal". Bonus tracks include "Monterey (mono single)", "White Houses (single stereo)", "Anything (single)", "Gratefully Dead", "Ain't That So", "When I was Young", "A Girl Named Sandoz", "River Deep Mountain High (single stereo)", and "Sky Pilot (parts 1 & 2)", CD

This debut set was originally pressed by the band themselves, in a print run of only 300 copies – and got little play outside of the Bonn scene which they called their home. All these many years later, it's a lost hard rock nugget that really stands apart on its own – with tracks that include "Student's Idyll", "Outcasted", "Jeff The Fool", and the twenty minute "Rare Girl".

A hell of a debut from The B-52s – and a record that's become surprisingly timeless over the years, despite a retro-styled approach by the group! These guys aren't the silly group of later years here – and instead, they've got this moody darkness that's wonderful – a re-envisioned postwar America, one in which the neuroses are all on the outside – served up with instrumentation that's stark, but incredibly tight – snapping drums, riffing guitar, and these great organ lines that sound beautiful next to the vocals of Fred and the girls. The set gave the group their perennial hit "Rock Lobster" – but taken as a whole, it's an incredibly different landscape – as you'll discover on tracks that include "Planet Claire", "52 Girls", "Dance This Mess Around", "Lava", "There's A Moon In The Sky (Called The Moon)", "Hero Worship", "6060-842" and "Downtown".

Gary BartzLibra/Another Earth ... CD
Milestone, 1967/1968. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Early soul jazz brilliance from a young Gary Bartz – music that pre-dates his Ntu Troup, and his work with Larry Mizell! Libra is fantastic early work from Gary – and probably his rarest record ever! The album was cut at a time when the young Bartz was first coming to prominence in the hip late 60s soul jazz group of Max Roach – and Bartz's playing at the time is a perfect model of mid-Coltrane searching with some of the tighter sides of soul jazz that were being forged at labels like Blue Note by players like Hank Mobley or Lee Morgan. The record's a masterpiece of youthful soulful energy – and the group includes Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Richard Davis on bass, Albert Dailey on piano, and Billy Higgins on drums, all players who are perfectly matched to fit Bartz's stridently creative vision. His solos on alto are impeccable – some of the most meaningful we've ever heard on the instrument from the time – and the album's a great one all the way through! Titles include "Air & Fire", "Eastern Blues", "Libra", "Freedom Of The Day", and "Cabin In The Sky". Another Earth is amazing too – one of the first that Gary Bartz ever cut – done during a time when he'd been working with Max Roach and a super-hip group of younger soul jazz players who would go onto shape the sound of the 70s. Bartz leads a group that includes Stanley Cowell, Freddy Waits, Charles Tolliver, Pharoah Sanders, and Reggie Workman – and the music sounds like it was lifted from one of the best albums on Strata East from the 70s. There's no funk, no vocals, no weird rhythms – just pure spiritual jazz, played to perfection, and filled with a creative vitality that most of the players had lost a few years later. Tracks include the album-side "Another Earth", plus "Dark Nebula", "UFO", and "Perihelion & Aphelion". Note: CD omits the track "Disjunction" from Libra – due to space restrictions. CD

Byron Landham is on drums, Wayne Escoffery plays tenor on two cuts, and titles include "If It's Magic", "Go Home", "Superstition", "Moon Blue", "Isn't She Lovely", "Ribbon In The Sky", and "Until You Come Back To Me".

This set might well be Adrian's ticket to the big time – as Burton's a singer with a very strong range, and great crossover potential – echoing Al Green one minute, hitting deeper vibes the next – and working alongside small combo backing that has plenty of laidback guitar lines and warm keyboards, all produced with the usual Quesada touch! Titles include "Oct 33", "Fire", "Colors", "Know You Better", "Stay Gold", "Old Man", "Confines", and "Touch The Sky". Expanded version features lots of bonus material – including "Eleanor Rigby", "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City", "Fast Car", "Black Cat", and "I Am Ready" – plus "live in studio" versions of "Confines", "Colors", and "Oct 33".

BlackaliciousBlazing Arrow ... CD
MCA, 2002. Used ... $2.99
A huge moment for Blackalicious – a group who'd been gaining plenty of cred on the underground, and who reached out to a much bigger set of ears with this major label debut! The whole thing's top-shelf through and through – superb production from Chief Xcel next to the words from Gift of Gab and Chief Excel – alongside a host of guests including Quannum mainmasts Lyrics Born, Lateef, and Joyo – as well as Dilated People's Raka and Babu, Jurassic 5's Cut Chemist and Chali 2na – and even work from Gil Scott-Heron and Ben Harper too! Clearly, someone had enough faith in the group to give them the money to realize their dream – and that faith definitely pays off here – on titles that include the classic single "Make You Feel That Way" – plus "Blazing Arrow", "4000 Miles", "Paragraph President", "First In Flight", "Purest Love", "Sky Is Falling", "It's Going Down", "Release (parts 1, 2, & 3)", and "Chemical Calisthenics".

BlackbyrdsBlackbyrds/Flying Start ... CD
Fantasy, 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 12.99
2 incredible albums from The Blackbyrds – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Blackbyrds record – a funky jazz treasure, and the band's landmark first album! The Blackbyrds were a legendary 70s combo that were discovered by Donald Byrd while he was teaching at Howard University – and they had a tight style that mixed raw funk influences with smoother jazz playing, creating a sound that was different from many of their contemporaries, and which pushed funk and soul into a whole new level. Byrd's work with the band was as groundbreaking as Larry Mizell's work on his own Blue Note albums – and coincidentally, Larry Mizzell's Sky High Productions handles the studio chores for the set – but in a way that's much more sharply funky than his albums with Byrd! Titles include the tight choppy funk tracks "Do It, Fluid" and "Funky Junkie", plus other nice groovers like "Summer Love", "Gut Level", and "The Runaway". Flying Start has a beautifully put-together feel – tight enough to crossover somewhat big with a larger audience than the group's previous effort – but still filled with the kind of righteous energy that first got them going, a sublime mix of jazzy rhythms and soulful elements, all held together tightly by production from Donald Byrd. Tracks include the big hit "Walking In Rhythm", which was an oft-spun 45 back in the day – plus some great funk moments, like the tasty "Spaced Out", the choppy "The Baby", and the captivating "Blackbyrds Theme". Other cuts include "Future Children Future Hopes", "I Need You", and "April Showers". CD

Nature Sounds, 2021. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
There's a lot of blue on the cover, and plenty of blue in the titles of the songs – but the set itself is as crisp and contemporary as any of the best recent releases on Nature Sounds – very upfront and layered in terms of the rhymes, and mixed with a fair bit of straightup samples, and a few more oblique elements in the prodution. Most of the record is handled by Exile and Sirplus – and titles include "We Are Darker Than Blue", "I Am Blue", "Because The Sky Is Blue", "Mr Blue Sky", "Blue World", and "I Was Born To Be Blue".

Blues MagoosGulf Coast Bound (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
ABC/Big Pink (South Korea), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 22.99
Amazing work from the Blues Magoos – stretching way beyond their roots as a garage rock band! The album's free, open, with a really jazzy style that shows that these guys had been soaking up plenty of influences from the left end of the singer/songwriter spectrum – and had also been spending a lot of time learning how to play their instruments! At one level, the album's chock-a-block with hip tunes that veer into blue eyed soul territory – and at another, it's got some jazzy inflections that move into the mind-expanding territory reached by a rare few other rock/soul groups of the time. Percussion is wonderful on the set, and Pee Wee Ellis plays a lot of great sax on the set – and the real treat is excessive use of vibes, which makes for some cool sounds on a number of tracks. Includes the long groover "Can't Get Enough Of You", which features a great percussion breakdown in the middle – plus "Gulf Coast Bound", "Sea Breeze Express", "Magoo's Blues", "Tonight The Sky's About To Cry", and "Slow Down Sundown".

✨✧ Oscar Brown Jr, Sivuca, & Jean PaceJoy ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Oscar Brown's score for a hip play that he wrote (one of his many plays!) – performed by him, Sivuca, and Jean Pace. Despite the "show" quality of the material, this actually stands simply as a great Oscar Brown Jr. LP, and the production is nice and intimate, and sounds just like an ordinary studio album. Sivuca's great, and his breathy voice and playing really open up Oscar Brown with some great Brazilian touches. And as usual, the writing's great, especially on tracks like "Brown Baby", "Mother Africa's Day", "Funky World", and the great version of "Afro Blue", featuring Oscar's classic lyrics. Also features a wonderful version of Johnny Alf's "Sky & Sea" – done by Sivuca with an incredible lilting groove! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tom BrowneBrother Brother – The GRP/Arista Collection ... CD
GRP/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
Soaring sounds from trumpeter Tom Browne – a younger player who really took the torch, and opened up a new path forward from early 70s electric funk experiments by artists like Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard! With work on this set, Browne is clearly the heir apparent to the CTI sound of Hubbard, or the Larry Mizell work at Blue Note by Byrd – and finds a perfect space between jazz and soul throughout – using his horn on grooves that start out in familiar jazz funk and fusion modes, then move into some great 80s groove and old school styles too. 2CD set features 29 tracks in all – including a few mixes from singles – and titles include "Magic (12" mix)", "Throw Down", "Funkin For Jamaica", "I Never Was A Cowboy", "Brother Brother", "Her Silent Smile", "Cruisin", "Rockin Radio", "Mr Business", "Brighter Tomorrow", "Charisma", "Bye Gones (ext rmx)", "Can't Give It Away", "My Latin Sky", "A Message", "Hit Man", "Secret Fantasy (ext)", "Fungi Mama/Bebopafunkadiscolypso", "Midnight Interlude", "Angeline", and "Tighs High".

Donald ByrdBlack Byrd ... CD
Blue Note, 1973. Used ... $9.99
A landmark album – Donald Byrd's first session with producer Larry Mizell, the man who went onto forever change the face of jazz funk! After rumbling around for a few years attempting electric styles that really didn't fit his mode, Donald wisely hooked up with Larry, and hit a groove here that would carry him for many many years. The album's a masterpiece of soul – heavy production with great keyboards, creating a nice set of grooves that let Byrd solo over the top, sounding better than he had in years! Great all the way through, and with tracks that include "Flight Time", "Sky High", "Black Byrd", "Slop Jar Blues", "Mr Thomas", and the prophetically-titled "Where Are We Going?" CD

CanMonster Movie (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Spoon/Mute, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $30.99 31.99
The groundbreaking debut of Can – a record that came out on 1969, and is every bit a part of its time – but also light-years ahead of so many of its contemporaries, with a quality that's kept the music intensely resonant over the decades! The songs are long, jamming, and full of plenty of prog and psych elements – yet they're also unlike those genres at all – maybe colder, starker, more visionary – using just familiar instruments, but in ways that are oddly unsettling – thanks in part to the intensity of the group's sense of interplay! The amazing Jaki Leibezeit is on drums, next to the raw guitar work of Michael Karoli, the insane basslines of Holger Czukay, and mad organ of Irmin Schmidt – topped here with vocals from the group's initial singer, Malcolm Mooney. The whole thing's fantastic – and titles include "Father Cannot Yell", "Mary Mary So Contrary", "Outside My Door", and the incredible side-long "You Doo Right" – which takes up the second half of the album! LP, Vinyl record album

CanSoundtracks (purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Mute, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $30.99 31.99
The second album from Can – and one that the group maybe likes to think of as more of a bridge between Monster Movie and Tago Mago – tracks done for a variety of film projects, but which also still really show the quick evolution of the group at the time! Some of the work still features original singer Malcolm Mooney, and others feature the new rising star of Damo Suzuki – but what might be most striking here is the drum work of Jaki Liebezeit, who already seems to be pushing forward with that rhythmic pulse that would soon make the early 70s Can so amazing – recorded with stark brilliance and blended with edgey percussion, at a level that makes most of the tracks unlike anything else the world had ever heard before! Of course, there's still plenty of tremendous bass from Holger Czukay, guitar from Michael Karoli, and keyboards from Irmin Schmidt – all of whom sound amazing here – on titles that include "Mother Sky", "Deadlock", "Tango Whiskeyman", "Don't Turn The Lights On Leave Me Alone", "Soul Desert", and "She Brings The Rain".

Vinicius CantuariaHorse & Fish ... CD
Bar None, 2004. Used ... $8.99
A beautiful beautiful album from Vinicius Cantuaria – one of the few Brazilian artists who seems to get better and better with age! The record's got a moody, stripped-down feel that reminds us of the most intimate work by Caetano Veloso from earlier years – gently jazzy, with clear inspiration from the bossa, but also a keen vision that helps Cantuaria define a sound that's far different than any of the bossa-revival albums on the market. Although spare and simple, the album's got a deeply personal feel – never too heady or overly intellectual, but also still clearly conscious of its own direction at all times. Great stuff throughout, and the kind of record that's got us paying more attention to Vinicius these days! Titles include "Toky", "Look To The Sky", "Procissao", "Quase Choro", "Cubanos Postizos", and "O Nome Dela". CD

Mute, Mid 2000s-2010s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
An astounding package of work from Nick Cave – one that shows just how endlessly creative he's been in recent years – decades that have most of us thinking of the artist as far more than just a singer and musician – even though he's still able to spend plenty of time in the studio, on music like this! As the title implies, the tracks here are either b-sides to singles issued over the past 20 years, or rare material from a variety of different projects – brought together as a double-length set that fits very well next to any of Cave's full albums with The Bad Seeds. There's a total of 27 tracks in all – and titles include "Opium Eyes", "Instrumental 33", "First Skeleton Tree", "Hey Little Firing Squad", "Fleeting Love", "Accidents Will Happen", "Avalanche", "Vortex", "Free To Walk", "Give Us A Kiss", "Needle Boy", "Lightning Bolts", "Steve McQueen", "First Girl In Amber", "Glacier", "Sudden Song", "Earthlings", and "Heart That Kills You".

Susan ChristiePaint A Lady ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99 28.99
The first-ever release of some incredible funky folk tunes from vocalist Susan Christie – originally recorded as demos in the years before her work at Columbia Records, and arguably even better than those classic singles! Backings here are by John Hill, who inflects Susan's folksy style with a heavier undercurrent – one that's subtly funky at the best moments, and which also pushes fuller strings and more baroque instrumentation into the mix – all in a way that almost sounds like David Axlerod might, had he started making folk records! Titles include the amazing 9 minute "Yesterday, Where's My Mind" – a funky mini-suite that's worth the price of the record alone – plus "Paint A Lady", "Rainy Day", "Ghost Riders In The Sky", "Echo In Your Mind", "When Love Comes", and "For The Love Of A Soldier".

Epic/BGO (UK), 1984/1985/1986. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 22.98
A trio of funky electric albums from Stanley Clarke's mid 80s R&B years – 1984's Time Exposure, ''85's Find Out and '86's Hideaway – in a 2CD set! Time Exposure has a lot of 80s electro funk in the mix, particularly Clarke's impeccable bass lines, which are heavy throughout. Titles include "Play The Bass '10", "Heaven Sent You", "Speedball", "Future Shock" and the great title track. Find Out follows somewhat similar territory, an 80s synth funky set with a few surprising twists – including an electro/funk/old school rap cover of "Born In The USA"! Other tracks include "Find Out", "The Sky's The Limit", "Stereotypica" and "Psychedelic". Hideaway makes a move towards more delicate synth soul for Clarke – who assembles an impressive guest list that includes Stanley Jordan, Herbie Hancock and Stewart Copeland. Titles include a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed", plus "My Love, Her Inspiration", "Where Do We Go", "Old Friends" and "When It's Cold Outside". CD

A fantastic dig through the music of Cluster – one that not only features some of their spacey minimal moments from Sky Records, but also includes some of their earliest sounds on Brain Records too! Producer/musician John McIntire's been influenced strongly by Cluster's music over the years – and here, he returns his love to the duo of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius – by offering up his own edits of their tracks "Grosses Wasser", "In Ewigkeit", and "21 32" – alongside well-chosen classics that include "Hollywood", "The Shade", "Fur Die Katz", "Oh Odessa", and "Wehrmut".

Al CohnMr Music ... LP
RCA, 1954. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A tight little record – with a strong focus on Al Cohn's solo work! Al's the lead soloist in a number of largish groups that are often tightly arranged, but which let the leader break out nicely – cutting with an edge on his tenor that's sometimes even sharper than usual. Cohn handled most of the arrangements – but a few are by Johnny Carisi, Ralph Burns, or Manny Albam –a nd players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Billy Byaers and Frank Rehak on trombone, Gene Quill on alto, and Jimmy Raney on guitar. Proceedings are tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "Cabin In The Sky", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "This Reminds Me Of You", "Move", "Cohn My Way", "La Ronde", and "Never Never Land". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing, with deep groove – nice and clean! Cover has a bit of seam splitting, but is nice overall.)
