Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else (with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $3.99
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". Includes bonus track "Alison's Uncle". CD

✨✧ Terumasa Hino/Masabumi Kikuchi QuintetAcoustic Boogie ... CD
Somethin Else/Blue Note (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Ornette ColemanSomething Else!!!! ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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

Richie HavensSomething Else Again ... LP
Verve, 1968. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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.

KinksSomething Else By The Kinks ... CD
Reprise, 1966/1967. Used ... $4.99
Wickedly clever British pop – plucked from our favorite period of this legendary British band! The record features the group hitting their songwriting stride – moving past the simple topics of earlier songs, into a flurry of snapshots of British life in the postwar years. Each song is a brilliant three minute ode to a certain aspect of life in England – served up with razor-sharp wit, and a creatively catchy approach to songwriting that few of the group's contemporaries could ever hope to match! The album features some of the best-known Kinks tunes from this time, plus overlooked gems – and titles include "Waterloo Sunset", "David Watts", "Death Of A Clown", "Two Sisters", "Situation Vacant", "Afternoon Tea", and "No Return".

Johnny RichardsSomething Else By Johnny Richards ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Angel Bat DawidOracle ... CD
International Anthem, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful solo sounds from Angel Bat Dawid – a Chicago clarinetist who works here with the same inventive spirit as the other contemporary artists on the International Anthem label! By that, we mean that although Angel's music starts in jazz, it quickly becomes something else – as she assembled the record not from a solitary solo performance, but by overdubbing sounds she'd recorded around the globe, and back home in Chicago – mixing her own very beautiful reed lines with a variety of other instrumentation – all recorded on cell phone, which gives the whole thing a wonderfully fresh feel! Don't worry about the album being too gimmicky, or too DIY – as it's got the same appeal as a studio-recorded spiritual session by a larger group – and there's plenty of focus on Dawid's incredible solos on her chosen instrument, with a vibe that's likely to have her rising to the level of clarinet giants like Jimmy Guiffre or John Carter. Titles include "Black Family", "Capetown", "The Oracle", "We Are Starzz", "London", and "What Shall I Tell My Children Who Are Black". CD

Gianni FerrioLa Morte Accarezza A Mezzanotte (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
That's a pretty gruesome image on the cover, but the music is something else entirely – surprisingly beautiful sounds that aren't nearly as spooky as you'd expect – served up in a mix of modes that include some funky bits, some breezy bits, and even a few especially nice blue-tinged numbers! The set's a masterpiece in Italian scoring – nicely different than some of the more familiar soundtracks of the time – and even different than some of the bigger scores by Gianni Ferrio. The great singer Mina lays down some vocals on one track, but the others are all instrumental – lots of spare spacey arrangements, with good keyboards, muffled horn riffs, and even some cool electronic harpsichord! Titles include "Valentina", "La Morte Accarezza A Mezzanotte", "Cambi Di Umore", "Ira Rhythm & Blues", "L'Appartamento Vuoto", and "Nel Giardino Abbandonato". LP, Vinyl record album

David FriedmanOf The Wind's Eye ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Spacious vibes and soulful marimba from the great Dave Friedman – a player who's really hitting his stride at this point in his career – and finding a way to set his music apart from all previous vibesmen who've come before! Friedman's got the sense of tone and timing that you might hear in Gary Burton, but also a tighter, harder hit to the notes – ala Bobby Hutcherson – yet his way of mixing his own instrument with the bass of Harvie Swartz and drums of Daniel Humair is something else entirely – especially when the soulful soprano sax of Jane Ira Bloom is part of the mix. Most tracks have an open feel – but in a way that's very different than similar material over at ECM – and titles include "Mr Close", "Fonque", "A Swiss Celebration", and "A Unicorn In Captivity (part 2)".

Jackie GleasonMusic For Lovers Only ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Music for lovers – and some languid lovers at that – thanks to some perfect mellow moods set by Jackie Gleason! The set's one of Jackie's undisputed classics for Capitol Records in the 50s – perfect sounds to woo a winsome lass, made slightly sexier by some great trumpet solos by Bobby Hackett – a player whose horn always seemed plenty at home amidst the larger arrangements provided by Gleason. And while Jackie's performances on TV were always pretty dynamic and explosive, his sound on record is something else entirely – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Alone Together", "I Cover The Waterfront", "Some Day", "Body & Soul", "My Love For Carmen", and "Love Is Here To Stay".

✨✧ Nona HendryxHeat ... LP
RCA, 1985. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Nona's last album for RCA – and it's an edgy mid 80s dancefloor soul stormer that really helps solidify just how fearlessly creative Nona was in her solo years – as if we needed to be reminded! Nona's powerful, not-to-be-messed with vocals have the greatest presence of any element – and the production is heavy with terse synths, RX-11 drum programming, fuzzy guitars, sax, trumpet and a great crew of backing vocalists (which includes Fonzi Thornton). You can read that and think of myriad mid 80s albums with similar elements, but there's a hip, arty edge to Nona's work that is really something else. Don't sleep on this one! Includes "Revolutionary Dance", "A Girl Like That', "The Heat" (Part I & Part II), "I Need Love", "If Looks Could Kill (DOA)", "Rock This House" and "Time". LP, Vinyl record album

KinksArthur – Or The Fall & Decline Of The British Empire (50th anniversary 2LP set) ... LP
Reprise/BMG, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes out of the sort of songwriting that Ray Davies had been perfecting on albums like Village Green and Something Else – but the overall style is more sophisticated, yet not nearly as self-indulgent as some of the 70s concept clunkers. Instead, the songs are brilliantly tight, and stand on their own well past the concept of the original album. Titles include "Victoria", "Brainwashed", "Australia", "Shangri-La", "Mr Churchill Says", and "Yes Sir No Sir". 2LP version features bonus tracks – "Hold My Hand", "Creeping Jean", "Plastic Man", "King Kong", "Lincoln County", "There Is No Life Without Love", "Mindless Child Of Motherhood", "This Man He Weeps Tonight", and "Groovy Movies" – plus original BBC mixes of "Arthur", "Mr Churchill Says", and "Victoria".

Plastic PennyTwo Sides Of A Penny ... LP
Page One, 1968. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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".

BGO (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
One of the most progressive albums on the American scene of the late 60s – a set that's definitely psych, but which has a put-together quality that's something else as well! 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. Dino Valenti delivers some great lyrics – and titles include "Gold & Silver", "The Fool", "The Pride Of Man", "Light Your Windows", and "Dino's Song". CD

✨✧ Sun RaFuturistic Sounds Of Sun Ra ... CD
Savoy, 1961. Used ... $6.99
The one and only album that Sun Ra ever cut for the Savoy label – a beautifully understated session that mixes more conventional jazz with some particularly Ra-like touches! The group on the set is extremely tight – especially the horn work of John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Pat Patrick – who glide together along with some of the best mainstream modernists of the 50s, but break out with earthier tones and phrases that clearly mark their playing as different from the norm. Ra plays relatively straight piano for the album, but there's more than enough Arkestra touches from other players on bells and assorted percussion – emphasizing the rhythmic qualities of the tunes, and really living up to the promise of titles that include "Bassism", "China Gates", "Of Sounds And Something Else", "Tapestry From An Asteroid", "Jet Flight", "Space Jazz Reverie", and "Where Is Tomorrow?".

Definitely one of weirdest chapters of Sex Pistols lore, which kind makes it a necessity!

Prime greatness from Porter Wagoner – a set that offers up a few of his hits, but also includes some overlooked gems from his important 60s years on RCA! Wagoner's been well-served with other "hits" collections on the market, but this set is something else entirely – put together in a way that really understands what makes the man so great, especially in his earliest years – before Porter was maybe pushing some of his gimmick or duet modes a bit too far. Much of the work here is the kind of straightforward material that first put Wagoner on the map – and the set features 29 titles that include "Everything She Touches Gets The Blues", "Dark Waters", "I Wonder Where You Are Tonight", "In The Shadows Of The Wine", "Your Old Love Letters", "Pay Day", "A Satisfied Mind", "An Old Log Cabin For Sale", "Trying To Forget The Blues", and "Hey Maw".

The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is something else entirely – filled with jazzy phrasing, hypnotic lyrics, and arrangements that really go far beyond any cliches or contemporary work you might expect. The great Joe Boyd produced – and really helps give a strong focus to Nick's vocals and guitar – and the cool mix of added instrumentation – which includes organ and celeste from John Cale, flute and alto from Ray Warleigh, piano from Chris McGregor, and guitar from Richard Thompson. Drake's work is impossible to describe adequately, but if you've ever heard him, you probably stopped dead in your tracks the minute you first caught his voice. We still do the same – and it's a pleasure to have this one in stock! Titles include "Fly", "At The Chime Of A City Clock", "Hazy Jane", "Poor Boy", and "One Of These Things First".

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!

The work is like the best music of its sort from Piero Umiliani – always with a rhythm and a melody, and sometimes even a little groove – a great addition to Misha's funk legacy, but with a whole different set of sounds and flavors!

The Rolling Stones doing their thing on the Some Girls tour – live at Fort Worth's Will Rogers Memorial Centre in the summer of 1978! Now remembered as a classic, Some Girls was a bit of divisive record for both Stones die-hards and rock fans in general, circa '78 – with some trendy pop and disco touches, as well as more of a gleaming production aesthetic.

Partly a soundtrack to the film on the life and music of the mighty Sharon Jones – partly a collection of some of her best tracks, with a bonus cut that's previously unreleased! The music here documents the amazing run of modern funk we've heard from Ms Jones & The Dap-Kings – a partnership that's given the 21st Century some incredible soul records – of the sort to rival 60s classics from labels like Stax or Atlantic Records! Yet the music here is also something else all its own – the story of struggle, survival, and rebirth – as Jones began her career with a hell of a strong sound, and has emerged with an even more powerful voice than ever – as you'll hear on cuts that include the never-issued "I'm Still Here" – plus "Slow Down Love", "I Learned The Hard Way", "Mama Don't Like My Man", "Let Them Knock", "Longer & Stronger", "If You Call", "People Don't Get What They Deserve", "Tell Me", "Retreat", "Humble Me", and "I'll Still Be True".

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".

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ KinksArthur – Or The Fall & Decline Of The British Empire (50th anniversary 4CD & 4 x 7 inch single set) ... CD
Reprise/BMG, 1969. New Copy 4CD & 4 7 inch ... Out Of Stock
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes out of the sort of songwriting that Ray Davies had been perfecting on albums like Village Green and Something Else – but the overall style is more sophisticated, yet not nearly as self-indulgent as some of the 70s concept clunkers. Instead, the songs are brilliantly tight, and stand on their own well past the concept of the original album. Titles include "Victoria", "Brainwashed", "Australia", "Shangri-La", "Mr Churchill Says", and "Yes Sir, No Sir". 4CD set features a huge amount of extra material – the original album in mono, and in stereo, plus the Great Lost Dave Davies album – and lots of bonus tracks too, including "Lincoln County", "Hold My Hand", "Creeping Jean", "Groovy Movies", "Mr Shoemaker's Daughter", "This Man He Weeps Tonight", "Mindless Child Of Motherhood", "Mr Reporter", "Plastic Man", and "King Kong" – and lots of unusual mixes and alternates of album tracks too! CD4 features demos, rehearsals, and BBC mixes of the tracks – plus theatrical and "doo wop" takes! Also features a bonus large book with new essays and interviews, a special Kinks button, reproductions of vintage memorabilia, and reproductions of four vintage 7" singles – "Drivin', "Shangri La", "Victoria", and "Hold My Hand".

✨✧ Karin KrogDon't Just Sing – An Anthology 1963 to 1999 ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from one of our favorite singers of all time – an artist with roots in jazz, but one who quickly stepped out into something else entirely – as you'll hear on this beautiful selection of tunes! Karin Krog's been a key figure in the Norwegian jazz scene since the start of the 60s, but she's hardly ever gotten any global exposure (although we've always tried to stock her music whenever we can) – and she's got a sound that's really mindbending, and far-reaching – every bit as powerful and soulful as some of the new generation of jazz singers who worked in the US scene of the 70s – like Dee Dee Bridgewater, Flora Purim, or Ursula Dudziak – but with a sound that's maybe even more revolutionary than all three put together! Karin uses her voice like an instrument, but still pays very careful attention to the words as well – which is crucial, since her lyrics are often her own, or penned by hip collaborators like Steve Kuhn and John Surman. The result is something that's hardly jazz at all – but instead this really cosmic, forward-thinking approach that may well be the 70s equivalent in vocals to Herbie Hancock's work on the keys. No surprise, Karin turns in a wonderful version of "Maiden Voyage" here – and shines on other tunes that include "A Love Supreme", "Just holding On", "Don't Just Sing", "Glissando", "Break Of Day In Molde", "We Could Be Flying", "Raindrops Raindrops", "Lazy Afternoon", and "All I Want". CD also features two never-issued songs – "Images In Glass" and "Tystnaden" – and musicians include John Surman and Dexter Gordon too! LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy Flanagan & Jaki ByardMagic Of Two – Live At Keystone Korner ... CD
Resonance, 1982. Used ... $9.99
Rare duets from pianists Tommy Flanagan and Jaki Byard – recorded in San Francisco in the early 80s, and issued here for the first time ever! Both players are artists we love in a solo or stripped-down setting – where they really seem to open up and find all sorts of little corners and pockets of sound that they'd never hit in a trio or group – and the combination of both Flanagan and Byard together in one date is really something unique! Tommy's lyricism and Byard's modernity mix beautifully here – and really balance the sound between the players – allowing focus on the individual personalities of each, yet really setting fire in the spontaneous interactions betweent he pair. Titles include "Our Delight", "The Theme", "Land Of Make Believe", "Satin Doll", "Just One Of Those Things", and "Chelsea Bridge". CD

✨✧ Fumio ItabashiLife & Live – Watarase ... DVD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2011. New Copy ... $24.99
A really unusual performance from Japanese pianist Fumio Itabashi – who returns here to Watarase, a site that inspired his most famous album in the 70s! Itabashi plays here outdoors – a really amazing setting for a grand piano – yet his work on the instrument is ever bit as bold and powerful as when it's captured in the closeness of the studio – although maybe taking off with even more inspiration from nature, which is always something that Fumio brings to his unique combination of lyrical lines and magical flow! The performance runs for approximately 63 minutes, and all other notes are in Japanese, or else we'd tell you more. DVD

Tribalistas (Arnaldo Antunes, Carlinhos Brown, & Marisa Monte)Capa Provisoria ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
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

✨✧ IntrudersEnergy Of Love ... CD
Philadelphia International/Intermusic (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

Donald ByrdUp With Donald Byrd ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good ... $19.99
A great album, and unlike anything else Donald Byrd ever recorded – almost mad hodgepodge of the styles Byrd used at Blue Note, as the session brings together funky soul jazz with vocal backings – linking the groove of At The Races with the choral stylings of A New Perspective! The session's the brainchild of arranger Claus Ogerman – who scored "The Donald Byrd" singers to back up a core group that features Blue Note stalwarts Herbie Hancock, Kenny Burrell, and Stanley Turrentine – plus some great soul jazz tenor work from Jimmy Heath. Verve scored something of a hit on the album – thanks to a tasty single version of Herbie's tunes "Blind Man, Blind Man" and "Cantelope Island" – but the whole thing's great overall, and other tracks include "My Babe", "Bossa", "You've Been Talkin Bout Me Baby", and "Boom Boom".

Martin DennyLatin Village ... LP
Liberty, 1964. Very Good- ... $6.99
Martin Denny changes the rhythms from tropical to Latin here – but the overall groove is still highly in his best exotica mode, and nicely augmented by some additional instrumentation! There's some traces here of the shift in production for instrumental music from the time – a bit of electric bass echoing out at the bottom of some cuts, more echo than usual on the piano lines, and a floating quality that's almost even more sublime than the original Liberty sessions. But the core Denny elements are also still in place – tinkling piano, island percussion, and a playful approach to familiar rhythms that never fails to please. The Latin is more of a nod to harder Latin modes than anything else, but it does make for a nice, if subtle change – one that works especially well when Denny's piano is out front, but compressed a bit in the mix. Titles include "Flying Down To Rio", "Ho Ba La La", "Something Latin", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Latin Village". LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRaeJust A Little Lovin' ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1970. Used ... $6.99
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".

RojaiStrut Down ... LP
Austin Boogie Crew, 2019. New Copy ... $15.99 20.00
There's a photo of 70s vintage Johnny Guitar Watson nestled somewhere in the collage on the cover – and that's a really great soul music reference for the slinky, well-inflected sound of Rojai! The singer hails from San Francisco, and has a great way of stepping up to the needs of a tune – upbeat and punchy on the funky numbers, and more laidback and snakey on the midtempo ones – all with a vibe that effortlessly shifts between classic modes, but never in a way that makes you feel like Rojai is reaching for easy references or imitating someone else! The grooves are nice and lean – similar to other records we've dug on the Austin Boogie Crew label – and titles include "Strut Down", "Do Me", "Something About You", "Soul Step", "Now That I Know", "Finest Girl", "Strangers Eyes", and "Just A Lil Bit".

✨✧ Cocteau TwinsFour-Calendar Cafe ... CD
Capitol, 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Cocteau Twins have definitely tightened up their sound a bit here since their early days on 4AD – but the group have also held onto everything that's great about their music, and, at some level, use the album as an answer to all of the other groups at the time who were messing about in the "swirl of sound" style they invented a decade before! Long before psych production was revived, fuzzy guitars were cool again, and even analogue elements found new love from the kids – The Cocteau Twins were breaking ground that was fresher than anyone else, and still sounds wonderful here all these many years later. There's definitely a sweetness here that the group never had a few records before – but that's also something that gives the record its really lasting appeal – on songs that include "Theft & Wandering Around Lost", "Oil Of Angels", "Evangeline", "Know Who You Are At Every Age", "Essence", and "Summerhead".

✨✧ William OnyeaborWho Is William Onyeabor – World Psychedelic Classics 5 (3LP set with download) ... LP
Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 LPs Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ Speed, Glue & ShinkiSpeed, Glue & Shinki ... LP
Warner (Japan), 1972. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a record from a Japanese band who answered to nobody else – a combo who could come on with the ferocity of James Gang or some of their contemporaries, but also hit some even wilder, more experimental moments too – something they definitely do here in the space of the double-length of the album – which mixes full-on jammers full of fuzz and bluesy riffs with some of the weirder moments you might find on the farther reaches of The Beatles' White Album! Vocals are all in English, and given that the album was issued on Atlantic, we're not sure why they never tried to push these guys bigger in the states – as they're better than most of the rest of the period. Titles include "Sniffin & Snortin", "Run And Hide", "Bad Woman", "Red Doll", "Flat Fret Swing", "Calm Down", "Search For Love", "Wanna Take You You", and "Song For An Angel". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Erroll GarnerClose Up In Swing (with bonus track) ... CD
Octave/Mack Avenue, 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Erroll Garner at the start of the 60s – but still sounding wonderfully unique, and coming across with a timeless vibe that makes the record every bit as great as his classics from the 50s! The format is simple – just Garner on piano, with Eddie Calhoun on bass and Kelly Martin on drums – but the sound is sublime, and in that special Garner-like approach that nobody else could match – very rhythmic, with a gritty pulse at the core – yet topped with these explosive lines on the keys that all make complete sense – not showoffy pyrotechnics, but sublime lyrical lines that never fail to blow us away. Titles include "All Of Me", "No More Shadows", "You Do Something To Me", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", and "El Papa Grande" – a nice number with a bit of a Latin pulse! CD features the bonus track "Octave 103". CD

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)".

✨✧ Kenny RankinLike A Seed ... LP
Little David, 1972. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Indescribably beautiful work from Kenny Rankin – a jazzy blend of vocals and folk – delivered with a warm and soulful tone that's unlike anyone else! The whole thing's great – really very much its own spirit, and kind of a bright light after a host of doom and gloom late 60s folk-based singers in popular music. Of course, Kenny's still got something of a righteous feel, and lets his politics sneak out from time to time – but his overall sound is wonderfully redemptive, without being cloying in kind of a James Taylor sort of way. The instrumentation is great too – with just the right use of acoustic guitar in warm chromatic tones, plus nice touches on flute and saxes from Jim Horn, and gently groovy backings that never dampen Kenny's light. Titles include "Sometimes", "Peaceful", "Stringman", "You Are My Woman", "I Was Born", and "Yesterday's Lies". LP, Vinyl record album
