Narassa (Sandro Brugnolini)/Zanagoria (Giorgio Carnini)UST 7011 – Popfolkmusic (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fonit Cetra/Sonor (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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

Piero PiccioniIl Dio Sotto La Pelle (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Sonor/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $38.99
Beautiful grooves from the legendary Piero Piccioni – a set that's a great follow-up to some of his famous 60s work – touched with a few more sexy 70s touches than before, but in a way that's still extremely groovy! There's lots of electric piano lines on the set – almost a Stelvio Cipriani vibe at times – but these are mixed with fuller arrangements from Piero, with slinky woodwinds and some great rhythms that extrapolate styles from bossa nova, then go off in all these cool jazzy directions! The music was scored for a documentary of the "mondo" variety, but has a feel that's much more like the best love/sex soundtracks of the time – with titles that include "Katmandu", "Starless Sky", "Inventions", "It's Possible", "Nights To Come", "New Ways To Live", and "Love Will Find A Way". 2LP set features 12 bonus tracks – appearing here for the first time ever!

Enzo ScoppaNew & Old Friends ... CD
Sonor (Italy), 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Giuliano SorginiSounds From The Far Space ... LP
Sonor/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $23.99
A never-issued album from Italian composer Giuliano Sorgini – and one that's very much in the best spirit of some of his better-known sound library albums from the 70s! Like some of those, Sorgini does a great job here of balancing more experimental modes with more familiar ones – using lots of electronics and processing to certainly evoke the sounds from space promised by the title – but often with a sense of humanity that comes through in some weird wordless vocal passages, occasional earth-bound sound effects, or other more familiar instrumental touches – including a bit of strings, which are oddly welcome next to the electronic elements. Titles include "Lunar Walk", "UFO", "Upwards", "Into The Space Immensity", "Sweet Trance", "Death Of A Comet", and "Man In The Space". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Freedom PowerFreedom Power ... LP
CMT/Sonor (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Mad funky work from the Italian studio scene of the 70s – the only album we've ever seen from Freedom Power – a combo who play with the energy of an American blacksploitation soundtrack from back in the day! There's loads of heavy drums, fast-riffing guitar, and sweet keyboards on the set – and although the record's got a few trippy moments that feature slightly psychedelic production, the overall vibe is way more in the soulful side of the spectrum – which really gives the album a universal appeal. There's some great tenor on a few cuts, and we wish we could tell you more about the players – but we're guessing they're some top-shelf jazz musicians, working under an assumed name. Titles include "Happy Fire", "Sigla RP", "Reaction", "Vortice", "Psycho", "Trip Free", "Freedom Power", "Privacy", and "Dopping 2000". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Giancarlo GazzaniMusica Per Commenti Sonori (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Costanza/Sonor (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little sound library record, in our favorite sort of mode – very funky and jazzy, and with a vibe that takes off from the grooviest Italian soundtracks of the time! Every cut here is a winner, and there's a nice sense of variety – riffing guitar on one number, sweet keyboards on the next, soulful horns on another – all making for a jam-packed record of funky instrumentals that are ripe for rediscovery! Composers here are the trio of Giancarlo Gazzani, Sandro Brugnolini, and Stefano Torossi – the last two of whom are responsible for other favorite work of the time – and titles include "Delicato", "Oh Jazz", "Mondanita E Esotismo", "Perifrasi", "Shift", "Abbandono", and "Aggresione".

✨✧ Giancarlo GazzaniSeduzione Coniugale (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Sonor (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet conjugal seduction – served up here in a rare Italian soundtrack from the 70s! The music reminds us a lot of Stelvio Cipriani at his best – as there's a mix of slinky, sexy modes with a few funkier passages – and plenty of great keyboard moments throughout! The instrumentation is nice and light – never too many strings to smother the lovemaking – and Giancarlo Gazzini displays a nice sense of space that could well have been inspired by maestro Morricone himself. Titles include variations on "Seduzione Coniugale" and "Colpa Mia" – including two bossa versions! Only two of these tracks were ever released back in the 70s – so this is the first time a full soundtrack has ever been issued. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Edmondo GiulianiIl Mare – Brani Per Sonorizzazioni (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dischi Egede/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An instrumental set that's a tribute to the sea – but with a version of the ocean that's a lot moodier and more mysterious than the watery world of Sven Libaek! Edmondo Giuliani works in roughly similar territory here – often using flutes, light stringed instruments, vibes, and other woodwinds to evoke a watery depth – but he's not afraid to make some corners of the water seem a bit spookier and enigmatic, especially at a few points when he really surprises us with some noisier electronics! There's a strong sense of journey as the record progresses – light to darkness, and back again – on titles that include "Alghe", "Sonar Tre", "Scandaglio Zero", "Iridescenze", "Coralli", and "Marina".

✨✧ VariousNew Tape ... LP
Sonor (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rare work from a totally wonderful sound library from the 70s – the tiny New Tape label, started by Italian trumpet legend Cicci Santucci – a player most folks know from his great contributions to Italian jazz in the 60s and 70s! The work here is every bit as great as the albums Santucci cut with his frequent partner Enzo Scoppa – but the style is more soundtrack-oriented, and filled with groovy moments that rival the best film grooves of the time by talents like Armando Trovajoli or Piero Piccioni! The rhythms are strong, instrumentation inventive, and unusual production techniques are just the icing on the cake – on tunes that include "Theme For Kamala" and "Janet" by Romolo Grano, "Reykjavik" by Girosan & Lesiman, "Folksom" and "Raggio Zero" by Santucci & Scoppa, "Macerie" and "Violenza" by Ruscigan, "Macchine Nello Spazio" by Paolo Renosto, "Space Machine" by Cicci Santucci, and "Macumba" by Grano & Renosto.

✨✧ Gustav Brom/Polish Radio Big Band/Warsaw Stompers/Rita Reys & Pim JacobsJazz Jamboree 64 Vol 2 – Polish Radio Jazz Archives ... CD
Polskie Radio (Poland), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set of swinging large group sounds mixed with vocal jazz numbers – all recorded at Poland's Jazz Jamboree festival in 1964! The real highlight here for us is the music of the Gustav Brom Orchestra – that cool Czech ensemble that later recorded some gems for MPS/Saba, but who here are already moving into some of their more modern conceptions – that strong sense of both color and swing that made Brom such an inventive leader. The group perform the tunes "Sonor", "Get Out Of Town", "African Nights", "Romance Of The Sea", and "Deep Water". The set also features some swinging vocal jazz numbers from the great Rita Reys from the Netherlands – working here with the Pim Jacobs Trio, who always provided her with the best sort of sounds – on titles that include "Bluesette", "Willow Weep For Me", "Moonglow", "Speak Low", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You". Andrzej Kurylewicz leads the Polish Radio Jazz Orchestra on titles that include "Cute", "Guma", and "Ballad For Anna" – and the set also features a few trad numbers from the Warsaw Stompers – including "Bat", "Panama", and "March Of The Charcoal Grays".

Gilberto GilCopacabana Mon Amour – Trilha Sonora Original ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $11.99
An incredible bit of soundtrack work by Gilberto Gil – and one of his best albums! The record was originally recorded to accompany the work of director Rogerio Szanzerla, and it's a wonderful mix of samba, jazz, and post-Tropicalia psychedelia – all recorded in a warm intimate style that's similar to Gil's legendary London recording from 1971! The tracks are some of the most pioneering that Gil ever recorded – and they break free of the time and space constraints of some of his studio albums, stretching songs out into long open-ended explorations, 4 of which are over seven minutes long. Gil's vocals are extremely soulful, and his guitar playing is free and jazzy, often interspersed with some nice funky flute and percussion work. Titles include "Diga A Ela", "Mr. Sganzeria", "Blind Faith", "Yeh Yeh Yah Yah", and "Tomorrow Vai Ser Bacana". CD

✨✧ PendereckiDies Irae – Auschwitz Oratorio/Polymorphia/De Natura Sonoris – Henryk Czyz/Chorus & Orchestra Of The Cracow Philharmonia ... LP
Philips (Netherlands), 1968. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Pivotal work from this incredible Polish composer! "Dies Irae" is Penderecki's haunting oratorio to the memory of those murdered at Auschwitz, and it's an incredibly dark work, filled with atonal orchestrations and richly somber vocal passages. "Polymorphia" is a 1960 composition, and is performed here by an orchestra of 48 stringed instruments. "De Natura Sonoris" is a larger orchestral piece – but the whole group works together in an array of soundscapes with sharp angular edges. LP, Vinyl record album

One of the stranger titles in this series of rare Brazilian soundtracks – a record that mixes together older styles of jazz and popular music to fit the themes and time of the story.

An excellent little soundtrack that features some amazing rare Brazilian tracks from the 70s! Azimuth perform a great electric groover called "Melo Da Cuica", with a nice keyboard/cuica groove that's very tasty! Moraes Moreira does a hard electric version of "Se Voce Pensa" with some nicely-produced guitars! Joao Donato sings "Que Besteira", a great choppy electric track that matches the quality of anything on his legendary Quem e Quem album! Marcio Montarroyos lays down a very progressive fusiony track called "Makaha"! And Martinho Da Vila, Paulinho Da Viola, Luiz Melodia, and Beth Carvalho all do funky samba tracks. Very nice stuff – and tough to find! CD

✨✧ Sandro Brugnolini/Stefano TorossiMusica Per Commenti Sonori (with bonus CD) ... LP
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

A very groovy set, and one that already won us over with its cover – even though we're not sure the pink-pantsuited lady playing vibes is part of the group at all! Instead, these guys are a heavily percussive combo that thrive on the best modes of small combo 60s Latin – think Joe Cuba Sextet, or some of the groups right before the big wave of Latin Soul – a strong inspiration from the descarga jamming of the Havana scene, served up with lots of piano, percussion, bass, and trumpet – plus nice use of electric guitar at just the right times! The set's got one very unusual standout number – a long descarga titled "Astronautas A Mercurio" – which has lots of weird production, electronic, and funky psychedelic elements – but even the straighter Latin cuts are great, and include "El Turron De Pochita", "Serrano", "El Negro Javier", "Trompeteros", "Pa'L Gusto", "El Culantro", and "Bobby".

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".

Ruud BrinkDouble Face In Verona ... CD
Arte Sonora (Italy), 1988. New Copy ... $19.99
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

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

Beautiful work from pianist Ryo Fukui – a relatively recent set, but one that sparkles with all the charm and imagination of his famous records from years back! 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.

MPS/Prestige, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A Prestige pressing of this rare German MPS session by Hampton Hawes – recorded in trio format with backing by two of Europe's best rhythm players, bassist Eberhard Weber and drummer Klaus Weiss – and in a groove that's really wonderful! There's a great tone to the record that's evident from the very first note – a warmth, and almost bell-like quality that we don't always remember from other Hawes albums, and which makes this one really special. The rhythm section is heard here in rapt reverence to Hampton's work on the keys, but still with enough of a force to color in the record with their presence, especially in the case of Weber's bass. Titles include some tasty originals – like "Villingen Blues", "Rhythm", "Sonora", and "Black Forest Blues" – plus versions of "Autumn Leaves" and "I'm All Smiles", "What Is This Thing Called Love" and "My Foolish Heart".

Honey Drippers & The Pegalo SingersBrazil 71 ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1971. Used ... $14.99
A groovy set to rival the greatness of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – but one recorded in Europe with a slightly different vibe! The format's a weird one – as the core sound is modly swinging soul jazz, with some nice solo parts on flute or trombone – but it's also sometimes topped off with ensemble vocals that go for the sunny bossa bounce of Brasil 66 – and these two modes play back and forth throughout the course of the album, making for a nicely expanded kind of groove! The session's got roots in the massive sound library of producer Hans Wewerka – responsible for many classic German jazz recordings of the 60s and 70s, but posing here as arranger/conductor Derrick Mallot – and although the players aren't noted, they're all pretty great – as are the male and female singers who work on the record. If you're looking for comparisons, we might say that the work's similar to some of the German bossa on Selected Sound or MPS labels from the time – and titles include the originals "Sweet Habanera", "Johnny Boy", "Sun Will Rise Again", and "Light Blonde Girl" – plus versions of "Work Song", "Taste Of Honey", "Yesterday", and "Girl From Ipanema".

Bruno MariniBruno Marini 4 ... CD
Arte Sonora (Italy), 1985. New Copy ... $19.99
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

Bruno MariniLove Me Or Leave Me ... CD
Arte Sonora (Italy), 1987. New Copy ... $19.99
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".

Sonorama Discos, 2020. New Copy ... $19.99
A really striking group from the contemporary Austin scene – one that's led by Victor Andrews Cruz, and who blend together his Colombian roots with some deeper strands of guitar-based music – with resonances that move between the fuzzy sounds of Saharan guitar and some of the moodier elements of the American underground! Yet although the guitar is very strong in the lead, it may well be Victor Andrews' vocals that are the most powerful element of the group – this really deep, yearning approach that almost seems to fuse a Nick Cave sense of power onto Colombian folklyrical modes – all driven on really strongly by the fierce drums and bass in the trio. Titles include "El Hijo", "El Rompecabezas", "Cuero", "Yo Quisiera", "La Ruta", "Ie", and "Mi Voz". LP, Vinyl record album

Great work by a sharp-edged ensemble from Mexico City – a group who start out in familiar territory of Afro Funk, then quickly take the music in directions of their own – which includes a bit of the psychedelia promised in the title! Instrumentation features the core Afro Funk modes of percussion and horns – but there's also these cool spacey touches on keyboards and electronics, used in ways that really trip out the grooves and keep things interesting – and some of the horn solos are pretty great too, nicely wild in all the right ways! Titles include "Champ Fire", "GElatin Lover", "Afrodita Vs Tongolele", and "Babuino Groove". LP, Vinyl record album

Alexander RobotnickCe N'Est Q'Un Debut ... LP
Materiali Sonori (Italy), 1984. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Classic work from the legendary Alexander Robotnick – an artist who not only scored big on European dancefloors in the early 80s – but one whose electronic grooves also went onto really shape the sound of house music here in the US! Although a few of Robotnick's tunes were issued over here on an EP, this full length set was a European-only release – and offers up even more of him to love! "Problemes D'Amour" is the real winner here, and probably most well known cut – a classic blend of beatbox and keys, all percolating together with a "wikky wikky" magic that still really sends us, with nice vocoded vocals, too! The rest of the set's nothing to dismiss either, and includes "Computer Sourire", "Dance Boy Dance", "Hola Macci Kola", "Ce N'Est Q'Un Debut", and "Afrikan Kola". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... $8.99 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.

VariousGuasa, Cununo, Y Marimba – Afro-Colombian Music From The Pacific Coast ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
A stunning collection of rare work from the west coast of Colombia – sounds that are in the deepest Afro-Peruvian tradition, given that a large part of the area's population is of African descent! Much of the music is heavily percussive, but filled with these fantastic instrumental bursts on guitar, xylophone, horns, and other instrumentation – almost a reverse of the mix of Latin influences that peppered 60s and 70s styles in West Africa, finding a new sort of inspiration in Colombia! The set covers a very wide scope of recordings, but really has a strongest focus on tracks from the 70s and 80s – and although we'd heard work by a few of these artists before, most of them are very new to our ears – and make the whole thing a fantastic fresh musical discovery. Titles include "Caso Del Vencedor" by La Marucha, "La Logia" by Chencho Trompeta Y Los Brujos Del Folklore, "Manueal La Bullanguera" by Gertrudis Bonilla Y Jimmy Puchey, "Petra" by Julian Y Su Combo, "La Viuda" by La Sonora Del Pacifico De Cachito Vidal, "Patio No" by La Contundencia, "La Tunda" by Los Trovadores Del Pacifico, "Un Guali" by Bambazulu, "Boga Boga Candero" by Peregoyo Y Su Combo Vacana, and "Pascual Rovira" by La Sonora Del Pacifico De Cachito Vidal.

✨✧ MombasaAfrican Rhythms & Blues ... CD
Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sublime blend of spiritual jazz and African rhythms – and one of the few 70s recordings made by Mombasa, a European group put together by LA trombonist Lou Blackburn! The record's got a much more righteous sound than any of Blackburn's work of the 60s – a boldness and sense of pride that comes from its blending of percussion, acoustic bass, and soaring horn lines on trombone, trumpet, and bamboo flute! Other African elements slide into the music too – like bits of kalimba – and the lack of piano or keyboards on the record makes for an especially earthy sound, one that trades rhythm from the percussion with melodies from the horns in a really magical way. Tracks are long, and the set was recorded with the same post-colonial energy as similar work from Paris or London at the time – a really righteous groove that longs to be rediscovered! Titles include "Nairobi", "Massai", "Holz", "Kenia", "Makishi", and "Shango". CD

There's no keeping up with these Joneses – as the well-matched trio is alive with energy throughout – really moving past any expectations we might have based on the individual players, as they make all these fantastic choices throughout – and find ways to really reach forward as a single unit, in a range of really wonderful sounds! Bassist Mark Dresser may well be our favorite part of the triangle here – as he's got this sonorous power that's completely compelling – often echoing the work of Larry Ochs on tenor and soprano saxes, but also very much standing apart – while Vladimir Tarasov moves between punctuated passages and more textural aspects of his work on drums and percussion. Titles include "A Fistful Of Jones", "Twelve Angry Jones", "Three Jones Outside Ebbing Missouri", and "The Jones Who Knew Too Much". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ KapingbdiBorn In The Night – African Jazz/Funk/Rock From Liberia – The Trikont Years ... LP
Trikont/Sonorama (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from Kapingbdi – a group who hail from Liberia, but who recorded all of these tracks for a label in Germany – all at a level that makes for a wonderfully open, criss-crossing sort of sound! These tracks aren't cleaned up or polished world music for the post-colonial market – but instead, they perfectly reflect the new musical crossroads that appeared in that generation – as a group like Kapingbdi were able to effortlessly draw from American soul and jazz, especially the latter – all while making music that was uniquely their own. There's some very strong jazz work in the mix – especially on the saxes and flute of group leader E Kojo Samuels – whose strong lead voice and solo passages really help give these tracks a depth that maybe even recalls some of the best work by Oneness Of Juju. Instrumentation includes plenty of percussion mixed with just the right dose of Fender Rhodes – and although there are vocals on the tracks, the instrumental passages often hold sway. Titlesinclude "Don't Escape", "You Go Go You Go Home", "Wrong Curfew Walk", "Our Heritage (Sengadebon)", "Take The Guitar Out", "Boys Town", "Deadea (edit)", and "Mali Feeling".

Daptone, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD

The group have a vibe that's maybe a bit earlier than the date of the material here – maybe more like some of the early 70s expressions from the American, German, and British jazz worlds – with lots of modal energy in the rhythms, and solos that are strong and freewheeling, but never too far outside – working with a really great sensibility between the members of the group. The music is dynamic, but never in a way that's forced or showoffy – and the set's filled with great originals by members of the group – who include Hans Kennel on trumpet, Paul Haag on trombone, Heiner Althaus on tenor, Armin Keil on piano, and Alex Bally on drums. Titles include "Snobben", "Keiler", "Welcome", "Incarnation", "Leaving The City", "Segara Village", "Fjorden", and "Paris Minor". CD features four more tracks than the LP! CD

Fantastic work from a group who are way more than just the sum of their name! The combo is definitely jazz, only a bit rock, and really provide a funky experience on most of their numbers – in the same sort of wicked blend of acoustic and electric jazz elements that you'd find on MPS Records at the start of the 70s! The musicians here are Swiss, but come from the same mindset as that famous German label – and like some of their contemporaries across the European scene, they were young players who were really open to new ideas – which they let flow from their fingers over the course of these cool long tracks! The lineup shifts a bit over the course of these recordings, and there's some real surprises in the roster of musicians –w ith players who include Bruno Spoerri on electric tenor and sopranino sax, Dave Lee on vibes, Hans Kennel on trumpet, Christy Doran on guitar, Freddy Meier on tenor, Kenny Schmidt on drums, Hans Foletti on bass, and even a young Irene Schweizer on electric piano. Titles include "If It Wasn't For Dicky", "Krivo Sadovsko Choro", "The Starter", "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child", "Cheyenne", "Blues No Blues", and a version of the James Brown tune "Let Yourself Go".
