Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day! Titles include "Somethin' Else", "One For Daddy-O", and a nice moody take on "Dancing In The Dark". LP, Vinyl record album

George AdamsNightingale (with bonus track) ... CD
Somethin Else/Blue Note (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $9.99
Beautiful work from reedman George Adams – a set that has him blowing some great tenor, plus a bit of flute and soprano sax too – on a set of laidback tracks served up with a great quartet! George's horn is definitely the star attraction here – but the combo's got just the right sort of sensitive swing to bring out his best – Hugh Lawson on piano, Sirone on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums – all sparking their own sense of creativity throughout, yet never overwhelming George's lead. A few tunes pick up a great groove, which leads to some especially wonderful lines from Adams – those bolder moments that we love from the early years, recast here in the space of a familiar song – on titles that include "Cry Me A River", "Moon River", "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square", "Going Home", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". CD also features the bonus track "Besame Mucho". CD

Terumasa Hino/Masabumi Kikuchi QuintetAcoustic Boogie ... CD
Somethin Else/Blue Note (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $9.99
A pair of Japanese jazz giants – sounding really wonderful here in a mid 90s session for the Somethin Else/Blue Note label! The set definitely lives up to its title – as both Hino and Kikuchi had played often in electric modes, but are heard here in a tight quintet that's very back to basics – a solid style that's a mix of hardbop and some modern touches – with all of the vivid colors we've come to expect from both players over the years! Kikuchi's piano is especially nice – very rhythmic and pulsing, without ever trying too hard – and the group also features alto from Greg Osby, bass from James Genus, and drums from Billy Kilson. Titles include "Monk's Dilemma", "Summer Mist", "The Moon Dog", "Sliced Wild Potatoes", and "Thump". CD

Somethin Else/Blue Note (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $9.99
The title definitely gets it right – as the set's an exclamatory surprise from pianist Junko Onishi – just the right sort of set to launch a long career in music! Many of the tunes are originals, played with a fierce finish that comes through right away – a heavier left hand than you might expect, which gives the music a nicely punctuated feel and a strong rhythmic pulse – even without the efforts of Tomoyuki Shima on bass and Dairiki Hara on drums! Titles include "Point Counterpoint", "Prospect Park West", "B-Rush", "The Jungular", "Broadway Blues", and "Nature Boy". CD

One of the boldest artists on the revived Blue Note label in the late 80s – drummer Ralph Peterson, working here with a really great group of younger talents too! The fire of the musicians really hints at all the power they'd unleash in the coming decade – and the group features Steve Wilson on alto and soprano sax, Terence Blanchard on trumpet, and Geri Allen on piano – each bursting with new ideas and a very youthful sort of energy – streaming new sounds and thoughts at just about every moment. Wilson's especially great – and titles include "Monief", "Enemy Within", "Bebopskerony", and "Viola's Dance". CD

James BrownJames Brown Sings Out Of Sight (white cover) ... LP
Smash, 1964. Very Good ... $69.99
One of the stranger James Brown albums from the 60s! The record is one of the only vocal albums he cut for the Smash label – and it was issued during a time when James was strangely contracted to two labels – King and Smash. His dual contract situation was that he couldn't record any new original vocal material for Smash – apart from the title track "Out Of Sight", which had already been snuck on the market, and which is a sinister funky track built along the same lines as "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" (not on this album.) Apart from that track, the rest of the material on the record is more traditional R&B and pop stuff – sung by James in a strong soul style. Titles include "Somethin Else", "Nature Boy", "Maybe The Last Time", "I Wanna Be Around", "I Got You", and "Good Rockin Tonight". The liner notes are great, too – with some pretty interesting information on Brown's career, and African-American politics. LP, Vinyl record album

Freddy CannonAction ... LP
Warner, 1965. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A lost 60s rocker from Freddy Cannon – and a pretty darn groovy one, too! The set's a mid 60s outing for Warner Brothers – and gives Freddy a style that's more Sunset Strip crossover than some of his previous east coast work – an upbeat vibe that would be perfect for the kind of fast-action nite spot that featured gals in bikinis, dancing in cages – and the kind of crowd that's more interested in fast shaking to the music than sitting back and sipping! Most of the tunes are covers, but given a special sort of zing – and titles include "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "She's Somethin Else", "Action", "Hang On Sloopy", "Beachwood City", "You Gotta Help Yourself", and "Let Me Show You Where It's At".

Bill EvansBill Evans Trio – Live August 9, 1980 – Norway – The Molde Concerts ... LP
Somethin Cool (Japan), 1980. New Copy 2LP ... $68.99
Late live work from the legendary Bill Evans – and a wonderful demonstration of the way he kept on growing over the years, even in this final stretch of his time on the planet! Evans plays here in a very well-recorded setting – a double-lengthy concert recorded by Norwegian Broadcasting – with a trio that features Mark Johnson on bass and Joe LaBarbera on drums – both wonderfully subtle players who really let Bill take the lead! Evans works here with these angular blocks of color and tone – almost a nod back to all the folks who'd been influenced by him and emerged in the 70s – as a display that Evans can still see these shapes clearer than anyone else, and put them together in a sublime tapestry of sound with effortless ease! Things are plenty tuneful throughout – but served up with this core approach that's breathtaking – and which makes even the final years of Evans such a revelation. Titles include "Tiffany", "MASH", "Up With The Lark", "But Beautiful", "Knit For Mary F", "Nardis", and "Your Story". LP, Vinyl record album

Flamin GrooviesGonna Rock Tonight – The Complete Recordings 1969 to 1971 (Supersnazz/Flamingo/Teenage Head/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Kama Sutra/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The birth of genius – the first three albums by Flamin Groovies, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Supersnazz – the first album from legendary San Francisco rockers the Flaming Groovies – and the cleaner horn-accented blueprint for the shakey, skronky structure to come! Supersnazz has a bit of a sibling in the first Stooges LP – in that the palatable production only hints at the insanity of later records – but it's a good rocking record all the same, a good site stranger, fierier and groovier than most of their contemporaries could muster! Tracks include "Love Have Mercy", "Laurie Did It", "Rockin' Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu", "The First One's Free", "Pagan Rachel", "Pistol Packin' Mama", "Brushfire", "Around The Corner" and more. Flamingo is one of the finest moments ever from The Flamin Groovies – a set that's awash in 50s rock and roll influences, yet filtered through the heady late 60s San Francisco scene – making for a mix that's completely compelling throughout, and unlike anything else we can think of! The Groovies might initially seem like retro-rockers, yet they've got this sharp edge that makes their music more of a commentary on rock and roll, and its roots as well – uttered beautifully at a time when so many others were falling into excess, but also done without any of the "roots" cliches that others were embracing in a much clunkier way! It's hard to sum up adequately, but the record's almost a leap forward from Gene Vincent over 60s psyche – but on its way to the rough edges embraced by the UK punk scene in years to come – kind of that odd space that the Modern Lovers hit with their Kim Fowley recordings, but much more rocking overall. Most numbers are originals from vocalist Roy Loney – and titles include "Comin After Me", "Headin For The Texas Border", "Second Cousin", "Childhood's End", "Jailbait", and "She's Falling Apart". Teenage Head is maybe the best-remembered album ever from the all-great Flaming Groovies – and a set with a classic cover image that really lives up to the music! The Groovies have an unusual blend of old school rocking with hipper post-60s sensibilities – almost their own faux-retro sound to rival some of the west coast modes from the Warner scene – but with a grittier NYC presentation that's really wonderful, and which made the record a key force in the pre-punk years! One of those true treasures that just keeps on giving over the years – a record of subtle brilliance that just gets better and better with each new listen. Titles include "High Flyin Baby", "City Lights", "Yesterday's Numbers", "Whiskey Woman", and "Evil Hearted Ada". 3CD set features a whopping 17 bonus tracks – including "Louie Louie", "Shakin All Over", "Carol", "Scratch My Back", "Rumble", "Somethin Else", "Going Out (version 2)", "Walking The Dog", "The First One's Free (single)", "Around & Around", and "My Girl Josephine.

Richie HavensSomething Else Again ... LP
Verve, 1968. Sealed ... $9.99
The genius of Havens at this point is beyond compare – a unique take on the dying folk sound of the 60s, one that infused it with a deeper sense of soul that helped it get new legs in the Woodstock generation – yet which is also heard here before any of the post-hippie cliches that would bog down some of Richie's later work. There's an earnestness to this music that's also touched with a good degree of worldly sense – a notion that the world was changing, but one person at a time, and mostly through the gentle efforts and honest efforts of souls like Richie.

Johnny RichardsSomething Else By Johnny Richards ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s! Johnny Richards is probably best known for his recordings with Stan Kenton in the early part of the decade – but when he moved out on his own, he developed a tremendous sound that was even richer, even more full of color and tone than Kenton's own – and which was often done without any arch-modern tones, yet still fresh and free of cliche. The album's one of Richards' first as a leader – and features a wonderful lineup filled with top-shelf players – including Charlie Mariano on alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Stu Williamson and Pete Candoli on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino and Milt Bernhardt on trombones – all players who really bring a bold sort of energy to Johnny's vibrant arrangements. The sax work alone is tremendous – cutting with a beautiful edge across the larger charts – and titles include "Waltz Anyone", "Turn Aboot", "Band Aide", "Dimples", and "Burrito Borracho".

✨✧ Ornette ColemanSomething Else!!!! ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Pre-Atlantic work from Ornette Coleman – one of his first recorded statements in jazz – and one of his boldest! At some level, the complete Coleman sound isn't entirely in place here – as there's a bit of a trace of hardbop in the mix – not entirely, but just a bit. But at another level, the record's still way darn bolder than just about anything coming out of LA at the time – proof that amidst all the cool jazz ruminations of the 50s, there was a second wave of modernism about to explode! The group here features Don Cherry on trumpet, Walter Norris on piano, Don Payne on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and while the core harmelodic rhythmic approach isn't always in place, it's more than made up for by some surprisingly free energy. Titles include "Invisible", "The Blessing", "Alpha", and "The Sphinx". LP, Vinyl record album

The group really brings more of a jazzy depth to the material, but it's all a lot of fun – heavy drums that are totally killer, with organ, flute and sax the leading instruements in the mix – and they all have a wavering, kind of buzzing dissonance that's something else! Titles include "Das Schwein Trugt", "Zwick Zwick", the multipart suites "Bosco Biati Weib Salles" and "Smile A While", Snakeskin Tango", "You Are What's Gonna Make It Last" and "Don't Forget" – plus 3 bonus tracks recorded for SWF radio in 1971.

Handsome Boy Modeling SchoolWhite People ... CD
Atlantic, 2004. Used ... $0.99
Just when you thought Prince Paul and Cat Power would never make a record together PRESTO – it's the new Handsome Boy album! HBMS takes a bit more of a chillout tack with this long overdue second opus – with lots of laidback beats and samples, and a surprising amount of live instrumentation! The gleeful, sarcastic comedy of the stellar first album remains intact, with some genuinely amusing skits (including one with Jay Z appearing under the pseudonym Hines Buchanan), and the deep range of guest vocalists isn't as surprising as how strong their work is in the best tunes. It would have been pretty easy for Prince Paul and Automator to find a bunch of interesting names to flesh out their big pop culture frappe, but something else altogether to make trippy hip hop tracks featuring Cat Power and the Hieroglyphics make sense on the same record. A pretty solid set from the most adventurous pseudo duo in the game! Guests include Del The Funky Homosapien, De La Soul, RZA, Lord Finesse, AG, Rahzel, Jazzy Jay, Qbert, Mike Patton, Casual, Hieroglyphics, Grand Wizard Theodore, El-P, John Oates, Pharrell, Kid Koala, and George W. Bush (just kidding). Tracks include "If It Wasn't For You" with De La, "Are You Down With It" with Mike Patton, "The World's Gone Mad" with Del and others, "It's Like That" with Casual, "I've Been Thinking" with Cat Power, "Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) Pt 2" featuring Lord Finesse, Qbert and others, First. . .And Then" featuring Dres from Black Ship, "A Day In The Life" featuring RZA, AZ and others and more, plus intro/outro by Father Guido Sarducci.

HotHot ... LP
Big Tree, 1977. Very Good ... $0.99
At first glance, Hot look just like any other disco trio of the late 70s – three ladies, two white, one black – but upon hearing the set, their music is something else indeed – thanks to warmer southern soul production from Clayton Ivey! The album was actually recorded in Muscle Shoals – not New York or Philly – and it's got a relatively laidback feel on some numbers, one that lets the girls' vocals bubble along nicely with the backings, which feature keyboards from Ivey, plus a bit of strings and horns at times. A few tracks pick up the pace a bit and head for the clubs – but still not in a way that's traditionally disco. Titles include the hit "Angel In Your Arms", plus "The Right Feeling At The Wrong Time", "You Brought The Woman Out Of Me", "Who's Gonna Love You", "Mama's Girl", "You Can Do It", "You're The Reason For All The Songs", and "Why Don't You Believe In Your Man".

The MC5 move to Atlantic Records after their first album – and find a whole new sort of focus that's pretty great! Their classic debut was a raw live album – designed to capture their intensity on the Detroit scene of the late 60s – but this set has the group stretching out, and really going for something else – working in the studio for the first time, with surprisingly strong production from a young Jon Landau – and a sense of focus in the songs that shows a great degree of maturity, while still keeping all their pre-punk edges! Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith are plenty darn fierce on guitar – and the titles alone give a good idea of the energy of the record – and include "Tutti Frutti", "Teenage Lust", "High School", "Shakin Street", "The Human Being Lawnmower", and "Back In The USA".

Plastic PennyEverything I Am – The Complete Plastic Penny (Two Sides Of A Penny mono & stereo/Currency/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Page One/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Two full albums from this compelling late 60s British group – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Two Sides Of A Penny – a great little record from a British group who grew out of a single studio pop hit – then quickly emerged as something else entirely! Singer Brian Keith recorded the leadoff hit as a single, without the band – but man, once a group was put together, things really got interesting – as Keith's compelling, soulful vocals get sublime support from the organ of Paul Raymond, guitar of Mike Graham, bass of Tony Murray, and drums of a young Nigel Olsson – who'd later go on to great fame in the 70s! The territory has echoes of the soul and blues of the mod years – but the complexity of the organ lines, and some of the rhythms, make for a more baroque sound – maybe like Procol Harum at times, but with its very own vibe. Olsson and Raymond also sing a bit – and titles include "Everything I Am", "Genevieve", "Wake Me Up", "Mrs Grundy", "Take Me Back", "I Want You", "So Much Older Now", "No Pleasure Without Pain My Love", and a version of "Strawberry Fields Forever". Next up is Currency – the obscure second album from Plastic Penny – a group who hardly cracked the charts with their debut, and who maybe sound even more amazing this time around! The group have shed their previous vocalist, Brian Keith, and are working as a really tight quartet with fantastic guitar lines, drums, and organ – all wrapped up in a mode that's swirling and powerful, but neither entirely psych nor prog either – thanks in part to a tightness that still echoes modes of the mod years, but with wilder edges – and a newly-discovered energy that really has these guys letting loose in a totally great way. Titles include "Caledonian Mission", "Currency", "Sour Suite", "Give Me Money", "Turn To Me", and "Your Way To Tell Me To Go". 3CD box features an insane amount of bonus tracks – the full first album in mono, plus 14 more tracks from BBC sessions – and bonus singles that include "Nobody Knows It", "Guarda Nel Cielo", "Happy Just To Be With You", "Tutto Quel Che Ho", "Everything I Am (first version)", "Your Way To Tell Me To Go", "Baby You're Not To Blame (single)", "Hound Dog (single)", "Celebrity Ball", "Currency (single)", "She Does", and "Genevieve (single)".

The group still have plenty of the optimistic charms you'd expect from their placement on the SF scene of the period – but there's a way of stepping out and really letting loose instrumentally that's pretty great too – in ways that are different than the Dead on record, at least at the time – and captured surprisingly well by Capitol.

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/2016. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
The complete works of Ranbow Ffolly – presented here in an overstuffed 3CD set! First off, forgive the double letters in the group's name – but that's the way the band spelled it themselves, and if you sounded this trippy, you'd probably do the same! Rainbow Ffolly have a really unique sound, even for their time – because they're not really Sunshine Pop, but they're also not totally head-expanding psych either. Instead, there's kind of a personal, almost artsy approach – but one that doesn't ever get too bogged down in itself, even though it's clearly concerned with sound experiments as much as it is with jangly guitar pop – which really comes through in the way that the guitars get all weird and strangely sonic around the edges. The set features both stereo and mono versions of their classic album Sallies Fforth – with titles that include "She's Alright", "Sun Sing", "Sun & Sand", "Labour Exchange", "Sighing Game", "Come On Go", "Montgolfier", and "I'm So Happy". Then, the set features lots more bonus tracks from the same period – including 'Go Girl", "Drive My Car (single mix)", "The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill", and "Sun Sing" – plus this very cool series of "hospital radio jingles", which are interspersed with the group performing songs that include "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, "I Can't Let Maggie Go", "Gimme Little Sign", "Bells of Rhymney", "Something Else", "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", and "I'm So Happy". Then, CD3 features the album Ffollow Up – recorded in 2016 by remaining members of the group – with 18 more tracks in all! CD

Jeremy SteigFusion (Energy plus more) ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Excellent funky jazz from Jeremy Steig – the funkiest flute player we can think of! The album's a 2LP set that brings together Steig's Energy album for Capitol, plus more material that was also recorded by producer Sonny Lester. Energy takes up where Jeremy's LPs on Solid State left off – adding Steig's hard-blowing flute to some groundbreaking beat-heavy backings by Gene Perla and Eddie Gomez on bass, Don Alias on drums, and Jan Hammer on electric piano. The sound is super-dope – and the cuts feel like they fell off some lost blacksploitation soundtrack from the early 70s. All titles are great, and the record's a completely unified, fiercely funky set that should be in the collection of any fan of funky electric jazz. Titles include "Down Stretch", "Swamp Carol", "Home", "Cakes", and "Come With Me". The rest of the tracks on the set are equally great – played by the same group, and probably recorded at the same time – with a free-flowing energy that's easily some of the hippest flute work of the early 70s! Titles include "Rock #6", "Elelphant Hump", "Something Else", and "Up Tempo Thing". CD

Kim Sung-BaeRitual (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beatball (Korea), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $35.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – even though, because the barriers of language, we can't entirely tell you what the ritual might be! But we can say that the whole thing is stretched out over the course of four sides of the double-length set – and has an eerie, atmospheric quality that's partly improvised jazz, but also something else – with a spoken passage at times, but wordless vocals at other – mixed with traditional Korean percussion, alto and soprano sax, piano, and bass from the leader Kim Sungbae! There's also a credit on the record for "electronic sound design" – which definitely is a factor in the development of the music – as it makes its course through "Greeting", "Possession", "Sending Message", and "Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousKatanga/Ahbe Casabe – Mo Blues & Rhythm, Popcorn, Exotica, & Tittyshakers (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Captain High (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
The "exotic" in the title is certainly well-placed – as many of these tracks take a familiar instrument, and use it in a slightly unusual way – a saxophone, piano, electric guitar, or something else – often set to grooves that start out in an R&B, early rock, or jazz-based style, but move into much groovier territory too! Some of these numbers have the spirit of the cuts we love in the Jukebox Mambo series – and others draw in elements of postwar Latin or exotica styles – while still keeping things pretty soulful overall! CD brings together material from the long-deleted Katanga and Ahbe Casabe 10" vinyl releases – with tracks that include "Nene Aman" by Artie Barsamian, "Green Onions" by Claus Ogerman, "Classie's Whip"b y Classie Ballou, "Cleopatra Kick" by Jack LaForge, "Lucky Is My Name" by Bruce Cloud, "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Shadow Street" by Kip Tyler, "Cleopatra" by Jamie Coe, "Katanga" by Ike Turner, "Lucky Me" by Chance Hallyday, "Ahbe Casabe" by Marti Barris, and "Thirteen Women & One Man" by Dickie Thompson – plus two bonus tracks "Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton and "Pu Chun Ga (Sweet One)" by Elena Madera.

✨✧ AguaturbiaAguaturbia ... LP
Arena (Chile), 1970. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty great psychedelic rock effort from Chile's Aguaturbia – featuring influences from and covers of cuts from psych & blues greats from the US and UK – but done with a cool, unique South American vibe and a groove that is the group's own! The guitar work from Carlos Corales is really something else – from fuzzed out rhythms with exploratory solos, with female lead vocals (in English) and shambling rhythms galore. Titles include "Carmesi Y Trebol" (a 10+ minute cover of "Crimson & Clover"), a psych take on "Rollin' And Tumblin'" with a Cream-like heaviness, plus "Baby", "Erotica", "Ah Ah Ah Ay", "Eno De Estos Dias" and more.

✨✧ Keith JarrettFacing You ... LP
ECM, 1972. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key early moment for Keith Jarrett – his first-ever solo album, recorded in the early 70s for ECM – and the start of a huge legacy of later work! Before this set, Jarrett had recorded some compelling trio material for Atlantic – and he was also exploring more spiritually soulful tones over at Impulse Records too. But this record is something else entirely – a new showcase for his sensitive expressions – the kind of angular, yet poetic lines that sparkled strongly in the trio recordings, yet stand out even more on their own! Tunes are beautifully penned – and titles include "In Front", "Ritooria", "Lalene", "Starbright", "Vapallia", and "Semblence". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousDestroy That Boy! – More Girls With Guitars ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that's every bit as wonderful as you'd guess from its title and cover – a killer package of all-girl rockers, and one that's filled with rare gems from the 60s! The material here is definitely a lot harder-hitting than more familiar girl group sounds of the 60s – as the tunes are drenched in plenty of fuzz, recorded with a garagey style, and often rock just as hard as any male cuts from the time! Most material is by US groups, but there's also some surprising gems from overseas too – and the package is a much-needed look at this under-documented side of 60s rock and roll. Titles include "I'm Gonna Destroy That Boy" by The What Four, "I've Been Workin On You (demo)" by The Feminine Complex, "You Don't Love Me" by The Starlets, "Climb That Tree" by She Trinity, "Fraternity USA" by The Lady Bugs, "Here I Am In Love Again" by The Girls, "The Beatles Are In Town" by The Fondettes, "Don't You Think It's Fine" by Project X, "Hold On" by Sharon Tandy, "Tell Me" by The Termites, "He's Something Else" by The Liverbirds, and "Shakin All Over" by Raylene & The Blue Angels.

✨✧ Paris SmithParis Smith – Kenneth Hill Quartets (with bonus download) ... LP
Oracle/Jazzaggression (Finland), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible album from the Chicago jazz underground of the 70s – one of a handful of rare albums cut by Paris Smith – a very under-discovered talent of his generation! Paris plays vibes, and has this incredible ear for unusual colors and tones – and for very fresh rhythmic changes in the music, which starts in more familiar territory of modal and spiritual jazz – then takes off into something else entirely! The group features equally amazing reed work from Kenneth Hill – a player who can be freely expressive, but without ever getting stuck too far outside – and the quartet also features drums from Usama, and bass from either Michael Smith or Donnell Lambert. This album's one of the few that Smith ever issued, on his own Oracle label – and all tracks are originals, with a beautiful sound – and titles that include "Mood For John", "53rd Street Ghost", "Bring Out The Skeleton", and "The Last One".

Salsoul (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A club classic on Salsoul – with a soaring sound that's still grooving dancefloors today! The record was arranged and conducted by Leroy Burgess – who also sang lead vocals and wrote all the material – and it's got a sound that's similar to some of the later uptempo grooves that Burgess was forging with Black Ivory. Greg Carmichael produced the set with Burgess, and there's some nice elements of his earlier underground disco work – like cool keyboards, and small touches of electronics used in just the right doses. Tracks include "You've Got That Something", "I Know You Will", "Sweet To Me", "Lay It On The Line", and "Something Else". LP, Vinyl record album

Mamas & PapasDeliver ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. Sealed ... $14.99
Wonderfully dark harmonies from The Mamas & The Papas – one of those amazing late 60s albums from the group that was pop on the outside, but something very else underneath – a wonderful blend of modes that was hardly duplicated this well again! There's a slightly spooky feel to some of the music – even their leadoff cover of "Dedicated To The One I Love", which has an eerie quality that's way different than any previous readings – possibly a hint of the trouble between the group members – although maybe that's reading too much into it! Whatever the case, though – there's a special magic here that goes way beyond any understanding of the group you may have from oldies radio, and the set features some great original compositions by the young John Phillips too. Titles include "Creeque Alley", "Boys & Girls Together", "Look Through My Window", "Sing For Your Supper", "Free Advice", "Did You Ever Want To Cry", and "String Man". LP, Vinyl record album

IntrudersEnergy Of Love ... CD
Philadelphia International/Intermusic (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic album from The Intruders – their last full record as a group, and a set that really shows all the growth they'd experienced as a harmony group in just a few short years! We love their early singles, and even their previous album for Philly International – but there's also something really special going on here – a way of hitting just the right mellow-stepping vibe to bridge the heartbreak of early ballads and some of the more sophisticated, more adult Philly modes of the 70s! Bobby Martin arranged most of the record – John Davis and Vince Montana helped out elsewhere – and the whole thing's got the blend of smoothness with fragile vocals that you'd find in the best Blue Magic material of the mid 70s – but all with that very unique vocal style that always made The Intruders so different! Titles include a funky cover of "Be Thankful for What You Got", Marvin Gaye's "Jan", and the tracks "Be On Time", "What's Easy For Two Is So Hard For One", "A Nice Girl Like You", "Energy Of Love", and "Everyone's A Star".

✨✧ Jack Wilson Quartet with Roy AyersCall Me – Jazz From The Penthouse ... CD
Century 67, 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from one of our favorite jazz duos of all time – pianist Jack Wilson and the young vibes genius Roy Ayers – working here back before his soul/funk fame of the 70s, in a completely different style! Ayers and Wilson only made a handful of records together back in the day – including important dates for Atlantic and Blue Note – and this set of unreleased live material from 1966 provides a much-needed addition to their short catalog of sides together – sublime modal jazz that we'd put right up there with anything else they ever did! Wilson is already a hell of a pianist on his own – one of the unsung greats of his generation, with a fantastic sense of flow and this mixture of lyricism and soulfulness that leads to all these very vivid moments and tonal explosions. Add Ayers to the mix, and you've really got something special – a vibes/piano pairing that sounds like nobody else – and which shows that even back before he worked with Herbie Mann, Roy was a tremendously unique player, destined for greatness. The group has a rock-solid rhythm duo – Buddy Woodson on bass and Von Barlow on drums – and titles include "Serenata", "Harbor Freeway 5pm", "Here's That Rainy Day", "CFD", "Pensativa", "Stolen Moments", "Nirvana", and "Call Me".

✨✧ Tribalistas (Arnaldo Antunes, Carlinhos Brown, & Marisa Monte)Capa Provisoria ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from Tribalistas – that groundbreaking group forged from three Brazilian stars who rose in the 90s – Arnaldo Antunes, Marisa Monte, and Carlinhos Brown – who somehow found a perfect way to come together, and make their music even more special as a trio! We've always loved their records, but this time around there's something maybe even more incredible – this instant classic vibe that rings out right from the very first note, as the voices of the singers trade back and forth, and blend – and the instrumentation follows suit with this subtle weaving of acoustic and electric elements. Monte produced the record, but really with help from everyone else involved – and there's this close-up, collaborative spirit to the whole thing that maybe makes the record the most intimate, personal offering from the group – and maybe the most mature as well. Titles include "Diaspora", "Um So", "Fora Da Memoria", "Anima", "Feliz E Saudavel", "Lutar E Vencer", "os Peixinhos", "Baiao Do Mundo", and "Alianca". CD

Warner/Run Out Groove, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A crucial album in the sound of late 60s Warner – recorded by west coasters The Beau Brummels in the heart of Tennessee, at the legendary studios of country producer Owen Bradley! This meeting of west and country is fantastic – a really incredible extension of earlier folksy rock styles forged by Dylan, Fred Neil, Tim Buckley, and others – handled with incredible care, and a style that's equally honest and ironic – but coming together with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – one of those rare few albums that somehow draws from a wealth of inspiration, but manages to make something completely standout in the process – almost a Feelies/Good Earth for its own generation! Tremendous stuff – and titles include "Jessica", "Bless You California", "I'm A Sleeper", "Little Bird", "Turn Around", and "An Added Attraction". Very cool double LP reissue – with loads of bonus tracks that include "Long Black Veil", "Confessions (demo)", "High There", "Deep Water (alt version)", "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down (alt mix)", "Bittersweet", "Jessica (alt version)", "Tan Oak Tree", "Just A Little Bit Of Lovin (demo)", "I Love You Mama (alt version)", "I'll Be Your Baby (alt version)", and "Lift Me (alt take)".

✨✧ Tony BennettFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A record that has a Motown hit for its title, but the album's got a depth that marks Bennett as one of the most complex singers of his generation – way past the broad belter of ballads from the 50s, and an all-adult male vocalist whose sound was essential to the sophistication of the mainstream in the late 60s. Many tunes are standards, given lush arrangements by Torrie Zito and Marion Evans – sung by Tony with that deep voice that nobody else could ever hope to match! Titles include "Out Of This World", "For Once In My Life", "How Do You Say Auf Wiedersehen", "Keep Smiling At Trouble", "Baby Dream Your Dream", "Days Of Love", and "Something In Your Smile".

Bold, boozy work from Carmen McRae – a wonderfully mature album from that great time when her style was equal parts jazz and soul – put together here by arranger/producer Arif Mardin, a perfect choice for the record! There's a care to the overall presentation not heard in some of McRae's albums from a few years before – not just jazz vocals with a backing group, but a really rich presentation of some hip, modern, all-adult material that somehow sounds even better in Carmen's hands than anyone else. Titles include the sublime title tune "Just A Little Lovin" – plus"Goodbye Joe", "I Love The Life I Live", "Carry That Weight", "Something", "I Want You", "More Today Than Yesterday", and "Didn't We".

Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 LPs Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too – as the instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, handled by William with incredible dexterity – and spun out in these soaring lines that bristle with righteous touches that really support the message of his tunes! The vibe mixes in some electro elements with long-drawn rhythms – and the vocals often step aside for lots of keyboard and rhythm interplay, then come in to send things home at just the right moment. Onyeabor's been a pretty elusive cat over the years, and it's taken Luaka Bop quite some time to put this collection together – amazing work that may well make the album one of the most important to ever come from the label – and the first introduction to the non-African world of Onyeabor's incredible sounds. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Atomic Bomb", "Something You'll Never Forget", "Why Go To War", "Love Is Blind", "Fantastic Man", and "Let's Fall In Love". 3LP set features four bonus tracks not on the CD!

Disciples, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very cool early work from His Name Is Alive – recorded back when he was just Warren Defever, working in the suburbs of Detroit – moving into territory that was slightly new age in inspiration, but which turns out with all these darker corners that really point the way forwards to 4AD! Defever plays guitar and piano with plenty of effects – already hitting that spacious sound that 4AD would pioneer in the studio with a lot more expense – somehow even more amazing here in the stripped-down setting of these home recordings. The sonic sensibility of the music is amazing – these sound nothing like demo recordings from anyone else – and titles include "Because Piano", "Outside The Window", "Tape Slow", "Echo Lake", "All The Mirrors In The House", "Something About Hope", and "Piano Rev".

Corinne Drewery's always had a wonderful voice, but the years just keep making it better and better – not just the warmly jazzy sound that popped up when the group first made waves in the late 80s, but this very personal, very soulful style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – and which really fits the spirit of the tunes on the set! Andy Connell is great, as always – handling all the musical details with lots of jazzy flourishes – including his own work on keyboards and vibes – augmented by just the right use of some larger arrangements. Titles include "Don't Give The Game Away", "Happier Than The Sunshine", "Be My Valentine", "Something Deep In Your Heart", "I Wish I Knew", "Until Tomorrow Forgets", "Almost Persuaded", and "All In A Heartbeat".
