Synchro Rhythmic Eclectic LanguageLambi (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Moshe Naim/Sommor (Spain), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A really fantastic jazz project from early 70s France – but one that also features a strong contribution from Chicago percussionist Steve McCall – best known for his work in the Air trio, and as part of the AACM! The music is a very freewheeling mix of jazz and global elements – with lots of percussion and drums from Steve McCall, saxes from the famous Joe Maka, keyboards from Saint Yves Dolphy, and guitar from Gerard Cubillon – plus occasional vocals from Gerard Philadelphe and Franck Valmont! The album's mostly instrumental overall, and many of the rhythms have echoes of styles from Guadeloupe – mixed with bolder jazz moments, all in a way that's one of those perfect French criss-crossings of cultures from the 70s. Titles include "Rigibo", "Lambi", "ABCD", and "Pasto". 2LP set features bonus tracks that have never been on vinyl – "KT 3", "El Gason", "Rete", and "Knell". LP, Vinyl record album

Sommor (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lost bit of prog from the UK scene of the 70s – an obscure record that appeared right before the birth of punk, but which carries plenty more echoes of the generation before – especially in the way the hard-jamming guitars can really take off on a riff and fly into a frenzy! The group's got an unusual female vocalist, Irene Menasche – with a style that's almost borrowed more from the acid folk generation, but taken to sharper territory next to these great guitars – almost with a spooky sort of Grace Slick vibe at times, which makes for a nice surprise. Titles include the long "Golden Age" – plus "Vicious Cheeks", "Hard To Get Along With", "Grand Britannia", "Mad River", and "Don't Take It For Granted". LP, Vinyl record album
