✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniE Il Suo Complesso ... LP
Sonor (Italy), 1970s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A gorgeous bit of bossa jazz from Italy – and a key non-soundtrack album from the great Alessandro Alessandroni! The session's a bit more jazz-based than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack work from the 60s, but in a good way – one that really opens up the tunes, and provides for some spontaneous improvisation that only deepens their spirit and sound. The lovely Edda Dell'Orso sings wordless vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a cool and groovy way that's almost even better than her famous soundtrack recordings. Some tracks have organ, others have acoustic piano – but the whole thing's grooving very nicely all the way through – with the kind of dreamy dreamy sound we'd rank right up there with the best coming out of Italy at the time! Titles include "Meccanico", "Primavera", "Introverso", "Bossa Italiana", "Beat For Love", "Hammurabi", and "Psichedelico". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 750 copies.)

✨✧ Sandro BrugnoliniAbstract Forms – A Selection Of Electronic Moods & Atmospheres ... LP
Musica Per Immagini/Sonor (Italy), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Late work from Italian sound library giant Sandro Brugnolini, but great work too – a set that shifts a bit in the styles of instrumentation used, but which follows lots of the same dark passages that Sandro explored in the 70s! The keyboards and electronics are more digital than analog, but never have that cheesy, tinny sound of mainstream work from the time – proof that Brugnolini is a real master of sound, with an ear tuned towards bringing out the richest possibilities from his instruments! A few titles have a more mainstream soundtrack vibe, while others are in a more atonal mode – and titles include "Vapor Killer", "Barbarel", "Omen Nemo", "I Remember Sax", "Young Clan", "Baby Gang", and a number of titles dedicated to the Russian painter, variations on "Kandinsky".

✨✧ Narassa (Sandro Brugnolini)/Zanagoria (Giorgio Carnini)UST 7011 – Popfolkmusic (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fonit Cetra/Sonor (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A split set of sound library instrumentals – recorded by two more famous artists, each working here under a pseudonym! Narassa is Sandro Brugnolini – an artist you might know for darker, moodier music on other records – but who turns in some very cool tracks on side one – numbers that definitely live up to the "popfolkmusic" title – in the way that they offer up unusual instrumental twists that echo popular modes of the tune, but in an offbeat way. The side features weird recastings of modes inspired by Bacharach, Donovan, and others – with titles that include "Pop Medioevale", "Gli Anni Del Candore", "Cineclown", and "Fermiamo Il Tramonto". Side two features work by Zanagoria – aka Giorgio Carnini – tunes that make sweet use of keyboards, including piano, electric piano, moog, and organ – used in a range of styles that includes a few especially nice funky tracks! Titles include "Calcio Derby", "Verdi Pascoli Inglesi", "Apertivo Da Vanni", and "Itinario Di Un Hippy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Enzo ScoppaNew & Old Friends ... CD
Sonor (Italy), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title here is very apt – as Italian tenorist Enzo Scoppa is reunited with his very old friend, trumpeter Cici Santucci – his frequent partner on classic jazz and sound library dates under the Santucci-Scoppa name – plus a quartet of younger musicians who really help them find their groove! Both Enzo and Cici haven't lost a beat at all over the years – both strong soloists who maybe have even more of a voice here than on some of their more tightly-arranged sets of the 70s – and the rest of the lineup includes Claudio Colasazza on piano, Stefano Nunzi on bass, Antonello Sorrento on trumpet, and Pietro Iodice on drums. The set features two tracks with the sextet – "Dancing In The Dark" and "Mr Blues" – one more with a quintet titled "Autumn" – and three more feature accompaniment from the Testaccio Jazz Orchestra – "Open Letter To", "Ana Marias", and "Sta In France".

✨✧ VariousJasper The Vinyl Junkie Presents Vinyl Junkie Thangs (3LP & 7 inch set) ... LP
BBE (UK), 2021. New Copy 3LP & 7 inch set ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky sounds old and new – a great collection of cuts that are hand-picked by Jasper The Vinyl Junkie, and which have a way of bridging the best modes of the 70s and some of the best sounds from recent years! The work here all sounds very classic, even if some of it is contemporary – rhythms that are mostly upbeat, but not really house, disco, or club – just upbeat funky nuggets that are filled with plenty of elements from jazz and soul! Titles include "Funky Cookie" by Exile One, "JB's Latin" by Spitting Image, "Safari" by Ashantis, "Berlin 1 (Hot Pants Road)" by Tihomir Pop Asanovic, "Nobody Else But You (Opolopo rmx)" by Steve Arrington, "Black Hole" by Stato Brado with Fred Wesley, "Crusien" by Thomas Siffling Trio, "Flotational Device" by E Live, "Let The Drums Speak (Harvey Lindo edit)" by Bah Samba with The Fatback Band, "Trippin High" by Eric Legnini Trio, "Painful Pleasure" by Hubert Eaves, and "Stay Cool" by Jaki Whiren & John Cartwright. Also includes a bonus 7" single – with the cuts "Sonor Tropical" by Mankoora and "Stockport Carnival" by Mr Scruff. LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro Brugnolini/Stefano TorossiMusica Per Commenti Sonori (with bonus CD) ... LP
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 34.99
An Italian funk double-header – a sweet little set from the end of the 60s, and one that features killer cuts from both Sandro Brugnolini and Stefano Torossi! We love either artist on their other own records, but there also seems to be something about putting them together here that makes them even better than before – certainly funkier, as the album's full of the kind of sharp, hard-grooving titles that first made us fall in love with sound library records in the first place! The date of the album's 1969, and both musicians make nice use of psych elements in their instrumentation – adding a bit of fuzz, wah-wah, or trippy guitar in just the right spaces – never going over the top, or getting too indulgent – but just moving in a groove that's tightly jazz funky at the bottom, and maybe a bit freaky at the top. Wonderful work throughout – and titles include "Sweet Beat", "Repetition", "Starter", and "Makkaresh" by Stefano Torossi – and "Wawa", "Motuproprio", "Polyphony", and "Flyer" by Sandro Brugnolini.

Mag/Rocafort (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3 x 7 inch singles ... Just Sold Out!
Killer cuts from Alfredo Linares – a Peruvian pianist of the 60s, but one who works here in a groove that rivals some of the best New York material from Charlie Palmieri at the time! The set brings together six hard-hamming tracks from Alfredo's recordings for the Mag Records label in his homeland – and the music is a blend of Latin jazz and boogaloo – all tracks that are burning with lots of heavy percussion, and driven on strongly by the bold work of Linares on the keys! Titles include "Cool", "El Pito", "Descarga", "Yo Traigo Boogaloo", "Sin Tu Querer", and "Tutu Tata". 7-inch, Vinyl record

The set features Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, and Peter Brotzmann – all blowing tenor, plus a variety of other saxes – coming together without any other instrumentation, yet creating a world of sound beyond compare – very free and frenetic one minute, then spacious and textural the next – with sounds that show this amazing understand of the instruments from all three players in the group. The 2CD set features one disc of material recorded in the studio, and one disc that includes a live performance from the day before! Tracks are somewhat shorter on the studio recordings, but still have a very similar spirit and sense of interplay. CD

A mighty mighty album that recalls the glory days of the FMP scene – a triple-talent terror that features the massive reed work of Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, and Peter Brotzmann! Given that Gustafsson and Vandermark are the two key heirs to the sound that Brotzmann first forged back in the 60s and 70s, the pairing is a perfect one – and somehow, the trio manage to find even more strength, energy, and creativity working together on this set than on any of their recent pairings. Tracks are spare, improvised, and beautifully creative – and titles include "Elements Of Refusal", "Broken Hymn", "Hammer Requiem", "Blessed Assurance Uninsured", "No One Ever Works Alone", and "Death Can Only Kill Me Once".

A very unusual collection – one that features all sorts of rare French advertisements from the previous century – a good number of which are songs performed by some of the bigger names of the time! The set's got an unusual format, in that it mixes straight radio ads with songs and jingles – a really striking sort of presentation, and one that will make you feel like you've tapped into Parisian radio at mid-century, spinning through the years as you spin the dial! Most of these tracks were never issued to the public at all, and are pulled from rare tapes and transcriptions – serving up a whopping 88 tracks in all – performed by artists who include Charles Trenet, Jean Valton, Louis Aragon, Ray Ventura, Pierre Daragon, Nicole Ratte, Henri Salvador, Maurice Chevalier, and others – to advertise products that include Cinzano, Gilette razors, Ricard, and even the comic character Tintin!

RCA/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 10CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai – a set of rare albums of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of their recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter soundtrack material – with especially strong work on strings, showing the way that the maestro learned his sense of offbeat tones and phrasings from the 20th Century classical scene, which he then applied famously to some of his horror scores of the time! The music here definitely has qualities that match the spookier soundtrack 70s material from Morricone or Nicolai – especially his move to horror at the time – and as with just about all of his recordings, there's a fair bit of unusual sounds and elements that are extremely hard to peg in terms of their sources. This amazing package brings together ten full albums of music – five by each composer – all originally issued by Italian RCA, here in their original covers – complete with a huge book of notes in English and Italian – all packaged in a hand-crafted wood box too!

✨✧ Piero UmilianiSmog – Musiche Dalla Colonna Sonora Originale (180 gram vinyl plus bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Rearward (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An early jazzy soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – made even better by some key work from Chet Baker on trumpet and Helen Merrill on vocals! The set was done at a time when both artists were spending some time in Italy – shaping the scene with their presence, and really standing out on a handful of rare recordings like this one – quite different than their American material of a few years before! Baker is especially striking – with lead solos that have a great sense of compression, and a depth of soul that really move beyond the Pacific Jazz recordings. And Merrill is wonderful, too – with that special flavor she only ever seemed to open up when she went overseas – and got to move into more unusual settings. But the real star is Umiliani throughout – balancing modern impulses with late night jazz in a way that really points the way towards his later scores in the 60s – but which is already nearly perfect here! Titles include "Smog" (done in instrumental and vocal versions by Baker and Merrill), plus "Dawn", "Tensione", "Tops", "California In The Summer", "Hollywood Tonight", "Bowling", and "Twilight At Los Angeles".

Rosa Barba & Chad TaylorIn a Perpetual Now of Instantaneous Visibility ... CD

Drummer Chad Taylor is one of the most versatile performers we know – a drummer who can move easily between a variety of different settings, always finding the right touch for the right moment! Yet here, Taylor may be in one of his most unique settings to date – improvising on two long duets with Rosa Barba – an artist and filmmaker, and a musician who combines her talents here by playing cello, but with a celluloid bow – literally making music with the texture of film, as she slowly bows her instrument on these long, spacious lines that are matched with equally careful, sonorous work from Taylor on the drums! Chad is much more sonic than rhythmic throughout – really sounding wonderful as he brings all these new colors to his palette – on the two long improvisations on the set. CD

Ruud BrinkDouble Face In Verona ... CD
Arte Sonora (Italy), 1988. New Copy ... $9.99
A never-issued album from the wonderful Ruud Brink – a Dutch tenorist who's one of the lesser-known players on his scene, at least at an international level – but who always turns out music that we really love! Ruud's got this raspy tone on his instrument that's beautiful and instantly compelling – maybe in the Ben Webster school, but with more of a bite, and this sense of phrasing that's completely his own – flowing out here on a number of original tunes, mixed with a few well-chosen numbers that really display the full range of his talents! The set was recorded in Italy in the late 80s, which makes it a lost treasure in his relatively obscure catalog – done with Marcello Tonolo on piano, Giko Pavan on bass, and Valerio Abeni on drums. Titles include "Double Face", "Cynthia Blue", "Conte", "What's New", and "Anema E Core/Body & Soul". CD

CochemeaAll My Relations ... LP
Daptone, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
You might know Cochemea Gastelum from his work in The Dap-Kings over the years – but this time around, the saxophonist is very much his own man – blowing a version of his instruments that often seems electrified, ala classic Varitone from the late 60s – used in these really new and compelling ways! Cochemea has occasional tribal impulses that belie his look on the cover – but all in this very focused way that never sounds too indulgent, and which instead always steps back to the soulful territory we love from Daptone Records! And yet the record's also maybe something new for the label too – looser, never straight funk or soul – as Cochemea heads up this fantastic ensemble that's very heavy on percussion, which drives the sound with a raw, rootsy vibe – while Victor Axelrod plays keyboards, and the man himself blows on alto, flute, and bass clarinet. A real killer – with titles that include "Maso Ye'Eme", "All My Relations", "Sonora", "Los Muertos", "Mescalero", "Song Of Happiness", and "Mitote". LP, Vinyl record album

Something of a split single from Don Cuco – a set that features him remixing a track by Ibeyi on side one – really expanding on the warm vocals of the sister duo, with beats that are gentle and glowing, but which move nicely in a strong sort of Afro House mode! The flipside features two originals by Don – "Milan" which is a nicely moody club track, almost like the sort we used to love on early Nu Groove, with keyboards doing as much as the beats – and "Agua Es Vida", a track that does a nice job of mixing acoustic percussion samples with beats, all in a warm global sort of vibe! 12-inch, Vinyl record

John FaheyBlind Joe Death ... LP
Takoma, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
The seminal debut of the great John Fahey – posing here as Blind Joe Death – an acoustic guitarist whose bluesy undercurrents showcase Fahey's love of early recorded music! The style is pure Fahey throughout – those magical tones that cascade effortlessly off the heavily-plucked strings of his guitar – echoing older blues and folk modes, but never in a way that's stereotypical – and which is already woven through with the kind of sonorities that continued to make Fahey such an important artist over the years. Think of the set as a skewed version of American history – filtered through one mind and one set of hands – and you'll be well on the way to understanding the power of this music. The set features songs penned by Fahey, and redone versions of older numbers – and tracks include "West Coast Blues", "St. Louis Blues", "I'm A Poor Boy Far Away From Home", "John Hardy", "Transcendental Waterfall", "Desperate Man Blues", "Sun Gonna Shine In My Back Door", and "On Doing An Evil Deed Blues".

The format is a familiar trio – with Takumi Awaya on bass and Itetsu Takemura on drums – but as always with Fukui, the result is something that's far different than standard jazz piano – as his sense of rhythm, timing, and lyrical flow really keeps things moving in very surprising ways – even when the performance features familiar songs! The recording quality is fantastic, and really lives up to Ryo's boundless energy on the keys – and the whole thing is a great contemporary extension of that rich tradition in new piano expression that Japan first started during the 70s. Titles include "Soultrane", "Old Country", "Sonora", "Stella By Starlight", "Be My Love", and "Chasin The Bird". CD

Dave Holland/Kevin Eubanks/Obed CalvaireAnother Land ... CD
Edition (UK), 2021. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Guitar, bass, and drums – coming together here on a set that lives up to the strong legacy of creative music we've come to expect from the legendary Dave Holland! Holland plays both electric and acoustic versions of his instrument – which makes for a nice shift in the way he interacts with the guitar of Kevin Eubanks – different sorts of sonorous interplay between the strings, given different sorts of emphasis by the drums of Obed Calvaire! Many tracks seem to have Holland leading the action out front, then opening the door to the contributions of the other two – but the album certainly feels like a group effort throughout, with nicely triangulated energy on tunes that include "Grave Walker", "20 20", "Quiet Fire", "Mashup", "The Village", "Another Land", "Gentle Warrior", and "Passing Time".

Bruno MariniLove Me Or Leave Me ... CD
Arte Sonora (Italy), 1987. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the most unique albums of baritone saxophone work we've ever heard – a set tha has Bruno Marini's horn set up alongside the bass of Charlie Cinelli and drums of Alberto Oliveri – a nice, open setting that allows the instrument plenty of room for expression! Marini still swings on most numbers, but the approach is different than more familiar quartet or quintet albums – deeply personal, in a way that becomes especially meaningful once you hear Marini's tone – slightly raspy, very human, and maybe unlike any other baritonist we can think of! The horn does all these amazing things throughout the course of the record, even on familiar tunes – and titles include "Blue Mob", "Thelonious", "All The Things You Are", "Day Dream", "Gershwin Goes To Rio", and "The Lady Is A Tramp".

Ennio MorriconeThemes – Psycho (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Dark genius from the legendary Ennio Morricone – one of the most important film composers of the 20th Century, and a master in just about any style! The work here represents a shift that Morricone made into darker modes as the 70s approached – sounds that stepped off from some of the moodier moments of his 60s western scores – especially those times when he might abstract the instrumentation, or use some elements borrowed from his experience in the Italian avant garde. These tracks are still tuneful, but also have a moody complexity that's breathtaking – and which would rewrite the rules for Hollywood soundtracks, as well as the Italian scene, for decades to come. The 2LP set features tracks from the films Il Segreto, Copkiller, Le Foto Proibite, Il Trio Infernale, I Sopravvissuti, La Corta Notte Delle Bambole, Citta Violent, Dimensioni Sonore, and Il Serpente – all wrapped up in a beautiful package!

VariousDJ Amir Presents Buena Music Y Cultura – Good Music & Culture – Rare Latin Sounds From Across The Americas ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
One of the most fantastic collections we've ever heard from DJ Amir – a set that may well blow away his classic On/Off Track sets for the depth of its spirit and feeling! Amir's been well-known as a crate digger for many years – and while digging for funk, soul, and hip hop on the New York scene, he's also come across plenty of rare Latin nuggets – not familiar salsa or crossover Latin Soul, but instead some much deeper numbers that show just how much spirit and imagination the music had when it was at its best! Most of the numbers here are from late 60s and 70s vintage – and many have this jazzy energy that goes way past just simple grooves, and which instead features the richer colors and complicated motions of some of Eddie Palmieri's music, especially in the 70s. Titles include the previously unreleased "Salsa (parts 1 & 2)" by Fito Foster – plus "Picadillo" by La Moderna Of New York, "Bomba" by Dax Pacem, "Paranoia" by Wayne Gorbea Y Su Conjunto Salsa, "Rogelio Tiene La Salsa" by Chino Y Su Conjunto Melao, "Yo No Bailo Con Juana" by Cortijo Y Kako, "Vete De Aqui" by Joey Aponte, "Asi Asi Descarga" by Mike Hernandez Y Su Sonora Casino, "Tembelque" by Louie Colon, "El Ritmo Soledad" by Orchestra Soledad, and "El Pulpo" by Joey Pastrana.

✨✧ Fitz Gore & The TalismenSoundmagnificat ... LP
Gorbra/Sonorama (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare jazz gem from tenor saxophonist Fitz Gore – originally issued on the Gorbra label in Germany in a very tiny quantity! The record's a bit unlike anything else of the time – spiritual jazz, certainly, but with all these different approaches that vary from track to track, as does the lineup – really showing a richness that leaves us breathless once the record is done! Gore's got this nicely edgey tone on the tenor – a tendency to maybe craft the occasional angles you might hear from an alto, but with a deeper sound overall – and other players on the record include Ulrich Gore on piano, Gerhard Ebbo on bass, and Phillipe Zobda Quitman on drums – although one track has gamelan, another has vibes, and another has congas – all of which makes for a nice shift in flavors! At times, Fitz has this slow-burning quality, at others he almost echoes a Coltrane ballads mode, and at one point he sings a bit – really surprising us with his mellifluous voice. Titles include "Steal Away", "Requiem For Julian Cannonball Adderley", "Delilah", and "A Sinner Kissed An Angel" – most nice and long. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Orchestra BaobabSi Bou Odja (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Syllart (France), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing classic from Orchestra Baobab – one of those records that reminds us why the group were always so different than anyone else! Some of the rhythms are familiar, but the execution is very unique – chopped up at times, so that the grooves are a perfect mix for the angular tenor and alto lines form Issa Cissokho, whose saxophone presence here may well be worth the price of admission alone! But all other aspects are great, too – from the sharp-but-snakey guitar solos of Barthelemy Attiso, to the sonorous vocals of the group – sometimes inflected in more of an east African style, but which maybe also belie the group's roots in the crossroads city of Dakar. Titles include "Autorail", "Sibou Odia", "Sotante Xalat", "Bon Bon I", and "Ndiambaane". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCuba – Music & Revolution Vol 1 – Culture Clash In Havana – Experiments In Latin Music 1975 to 1985 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A true revolution in Cuban music – not the familiar cha cha and pachanga modes of the pre-Castro years, but instead the huge wave of fresh styles and combinations that sprung up in the years to come! The tracks here aren't the kind of Cuban sounds that are locked in time by the all-star representations of the scene that circle widely – and instead, this music represents the younger, more experimental side of the scene – continually creating new styles and hybrids during the 70s and 80s, even at a time when most of the records weren't making it out to the world at large! Make no mistake, there's certainly elements of older Afro Latin rhythms, and Latin jazz instrumentation – but those are blended with new approaches to rhythm, instrumentation, and the overall role of the musicians and singers – on tracks that will really open up your ears. Gilles Peterson helped put the package together for Soul Jazz – and the whole thing's got the same hybrid hallmarks as his more recent recording forays in Havana – with cuts that include "Cancion Con Todos" by Grupo De Experimentacion Sonora Del Icaic, "Hast Las Cuantas" by Grupo Monumental, "Luna Wanestain" by Emiliano Salvador, "Te Quiero Porque Te Quiero" by Pablo Milanes, "Un Lamento Heco Cancion" by Los Reyes 73, "Dacapo" by Raul Gomez, "La Patica" by Paquito D'Rivera, "Rompe Cocorioco" by Juan Pablo Torres, "Mi Ritmo Caliente" by Juan Formell & Los Van Van, "Chequere Son" by Grupo Irakere, "El Son Del Campeon" by Conjunto Rubavana, and "Con Cadencia Y Con Dulzura" by Las D'Aida.

✨✧ JoyceAnos 80s (Feminina/Agua E Luz/Tardes Cariocas/Saudade Do Futuro/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – four albums that feature this amazing singer at her height, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Feminina – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". Next is Agua E Luz – an amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio". Tardes Cariocas is a set recorded during the same key stretch as her early 80s albums for EMI – yet much more obscure! The album's got the same brilliant blend of jazz and bossa phrasing as her classics Agua E Luz and Feminina – and really brings Joyce's beautiful vocals to the forefront, with a strong focus on that fluid, jazzy style we totally love! Acoustic guitar is key to the instrumentation, yet there's also a few electric touches on keyboards – yet used quite softly, so that the presence of Joyce really dominates the record – but with a power that's greater than some of her more solo sets. Wonderful throughout –a nd with cuts that include "Nacional Kid", "Curioso", "Baracumbarra", "Tardes Cariocas", "Luz Do Chao", and "Ela". Saudade Do Futuro is a totally hard to find Joyce album from the mid 80's. Recorded for the obscure Pointer label in Brazil, this set has more of a modern fusion feel than some of her classic recordings that we stock, but Joyce's voice is still sweet and lovely, and her songwriting's as strong as always. The set includes her classic cut "Fa Da Bahia", plus other nice tracks like "Peixe Estrela", "Sonora Garoa", "Quadrantes", "Minha Gata Rita Lee", "Stone Washed, and "Tema Para Jobim", which has a guest performance by Milton Nascimento! Set features 7 bonus tracks – recordings done with Viva Voz, Antonio Adolfo, Mario Adnet, and others – with titles that include "Acalanto", "Terra", "Pega Leve", "Canconeta", "Revendo Amigos", "Diga Ai Companheiro", and "Planeta Azul".

A great introduction to the Latin grooves of New York and Puerto Rico – a 30 track, 3CD set mostly compiled from classic recordings of the 70s! The bulk of the work on the set comes from 70s New York indie labels – like Fania, Tico, Alegre, Inca, and Cotique – plus some great classic-styled tunes from newer sources – and the package offers the tunes in an increasingly dancefloor-driven assortment that runs from "warming up", to "getting hotter", to "dance meltdown"! Titles include "Amor Para Mi" by Cuco Valoy, "Las Parabolas" by Louie Ramirez, "Rococo" by Bongo Logic, "En Las Delicious" by Cubanismo, "Moreno Soy" by Sonora Poncena, "Vete I Pregona" by Jose Alberto, "Indestructible" by Ray Barretto, "La Lorana" by Sex Appeal, "Que Bueno Baila Usted" by Tito Puente, "Mi Gente" by Hector Lavoe, "La Musica Esa Mi Vida" by Spanish Harlem Orchestra, "La Rebellion" by Raulin, "Xiomara" by Alfredo De La Fe, "La Cacharra" by Jimmy Bosch, "No Hay Amigo" by Orchestra Harlow, and "Amor En La Arena" by Pete Conte Rodriguez & Johnny Pacheco.

✨✧ Freddy ColeCole Nobody Knows ... LP
First Shot/Sonorama (Germany), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Freddy Cole is Nat King Cole's brother – hence The Cole That Nobody Knows – but although Freddy may not have hit the heights as Nat, he's had a wonderfully rich career that's lasted for decades – and yielded some real gems like this in the process! The album's one of Freddy's greatest – a swinging, soulful, and yet wonderfully understated little session – one that makes some real magic from just a bit of piano, bass, and drums alongside Freddy's vocals – giving some of these tunes a really great groove that's perfect for Cole's easygoing style! The tunes are quite fresh – hardly the sort you'd find on similar, sleepier albums of this type – and Cole's definitely got an ear out to the hipper side of early 70s jazz vocals, especially on some of the tunes that use electric piano instead of acoustic. Titles include "Moving On/A Place In The Sun", "Brother Where Are You", "Correct Me If I'm Wrong", "Miss Otis Regrets", "Wild Is Love", "He'll Have To Go", and "I Keep Going Back To Joe's/Waiter Ask The Man To Play The Blues".

✨✧ John Fahey & Blind Joe DeathLegend Of Blind Joe Death (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Takoma, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The seminal debut of the great John Fahey – posing here as Blind Joe Death – an acoustic guitarist whose bluesy undercurrents showcase Fahey's love of early recorded music! The style is pure Fahey throughout – those magical tones that cascade effortlessly off the heavily-plucked strings of his guitar – echoing older blues and folk modes, but never in a way that's stereotypical – and which is already woven through with the kind of sonorities that continued to make Fahey such an important artist over the years. Think of the set as a skewed version of American history – filtered through one mind and one set of hands – and you'll be well on the way to understanding the power of this music. The set features songs penned by Fahey, and redone versions of older numbers – and tracks include "West Coast Blues", "St. Louis Blues", "I'm A Poor Boy Far Away From Home", "John Hardy", "Transcendental Waterfall", "Desperate Man Blues", "Sun Gonna Shine In My Back Door", and "On Doing An Evil Deed Blues". Fahey originally recorded some of the material in 1959, then again in 1963 – and this double-length CD features all of the many tracks that appeared on various versions of the record – 21 titles and over 75 minutes of music!

A pair of compilations that really opened up the ears of the north to the sound of Colombia – providing a much-needed showcase for the cumbia grooves that had been burning for decades, but which never saw much release for mainstream markets up in the US!

Arte Sonora (Italy), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bruno Marini may not be the biggest name in that small group of players of the baritone saxophone – but he's a hell of a musician, and works his horn in a really wonderful way on this debut set! Marini's got an ability to swing with a modern sense of tone and color – a bit like Cecil Payne at his best, back in the day – but also very different, with this human, compassionate quality that brings things out of his instrument that we're not sure we've heard from anyone else! The set features all original numbers – written either by Marini, or the group's pianist Marcello Tonolo – and the rest of the combo features Marc Abrams on bass and Valerio Abeni on drums. Titles include "Screech", "Backbiter", "Alyke", "White Snowballs", and "Drawing". CD
