Mayra AndradeStoria Storia ... CD
RCA/Sony (France), 2009. Used ... $11.99
Cape Verdean vocals from Mayra Andrade, but carried off with a warm and lovely feel that's almost bossa nova at points! Andrade's gently expressive in her lyrics – singing soulfully, but subtly alongside these sweet little rhythms with a touch of jazz, and some earthier percussion elements at the bottom – a blend that's almost in the territory of Maria Rita at points, but more personal overall. As with Rita, there's a bit of a stylistic link here to some of the classic work of Elis Regina – more in spirit than overall sound, as Mayra manages the same careful balance of emotion and expressivity we always love in Elis. Titles include "Palavra", "Mon Carrousel", "Morena Menina Linda", "Odjus Fitchadu", "Konsiensia", "Juana", "Seu", "Storia Storia", and "Lembransa". CD

Mario BiondiParadise – Alternative Productions EP ... LP
Sony (Italy), 2020. New Copy ... $26.99
A great little package that expands on the tune "Paradise" – one of the catchiest numbers in years from the raspy-voiced genius of Mario Biondi – a contemporary singer, but one who's perfect for turning out soulful tracks that really hearken back to the bast! Here, Biondi almost rivals Barry White's depth in the company of the catchy groove of the tune – which is presented in a radio edit, plus "DJ Meme's club remix", "DJ Meme's extended disco", "Piparo's production", "Joe T Vannelli's extended remix", and "Joe T Vannelli's extended instrumental".

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersBest Of The Columbia & RCA/Vik Years 1956 to 1959 ... CD
Sony/Real Gone, Late 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
A nice collection of overlooked work from Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers – not the oft-reissued material from the group's years at Blue Note, but instead some slightly more obscure sides recorded for Columbia and RCA! The work here also represents a time when Blakey was experimenting a bit more with the group – a stretch right before he settled into some of the more-recorded groups with Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan, and Bobby Timmons – but still had a great ear for important younger talent! Players here include Bill Hardman, Donald Byrd, and Lee Morgan on trumpets; Jackie McLean on alto; Johnny Griffin, Hank Mobley, and Benny Golson on tenor; and Horace Silver and Sam Dockery on piano! The set includes material from the albums Hard Bop, Drum Suite, Jazz Messengers, Night In Tunisia, and some of the French-only live recordings that Blakey did for RCA in the late 50s – and the set features 16 tracks that include "Nica's Dream", "Evidence", "Blues March For Europe No 1", "Along Came Manon", "Lester Left Town", "Night In Tunisia (live)", "Moanin With Hazel", "Night In Tunisia (take 3)", "Ecaroh", "Cubano Chant", "Almost Like Being In Love", "The Sacrifie", and "Couldn't It Be You (take 4)".

Blues CreationDemon & Eleven Children ... LP
Denon/Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $56.99
A mindblowing set from early 70s Japan – and a record that's every bit as sinister as you'd guess from its title! Blues Creation certainly started out with a blues influence in their music, but like some of the headier British groups of the moment, they've turned that love of guitar lines and heavy rhythms into some much more brooding territory – hard rock, but with a current of evil that was never in their inspirations – almost as if these guys have shaken off the blues, and are ready to show the world that they're a force to be reckoned with! The guitar work is superb – really top-shelf classic jamming level – and titles include "Atomic Bombs Away", "Demon & Eleven Children", "One Summer Day", "Brane Baster", and "Just I Was Born".

ClashClash ... CD
Sony, 1977. Used ... $2.99
One of the most stunning debut albums of the 70s – and a set that burst on the scene with a sound that summed up a generation, but which had never been heard this clearly before! This self-titled Clash album was different from other landmarks of the time – work by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and others – as the group had a sense of raw power, but also a tunefulness too – a way of pushing their message into territory that others wouldn't have reached – with tunes that were as surprisingly hummable as they were politically correct! There's a bit less Jamaican influence here than in later Clash years, but that quality is still present somewhat – and over the years, this is definitely a set we can return to again and again – with no sense of apology or outdated ideals at all. Nearly every cut's a classic – and titles include "Janie Jones", "Career Opportunities", "Police & Thieves", "Garageland", "Clash City Rockers", "I Fought The Law", "White Riot", "London's Burning", "White Man In Hammersmith Palais", and "I'm So Bored With The USA".

We have to be honest, by this point we'd all but given up on George. But the truth is, Clinton and crew have pulled off a decent job of turning the tables on the whole G-funk scene, and taking a page or two out of their book, after they'd done the same to him for years! While we'd never claim this is best work, it's held up a fair bit better to the test of time than you might imagine! With "If Anybody's Gonna Get Funked Up (It's Gonna Be You)", "New Spaceship", "Flatman & Bobbin", "Sloppy Seconds", "Rock The Party" and "Get Your Funk On". CD

✨✧ Martinho Da VilaDe Bem Com A Vida ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2016. Used ... $8.99
Instantly timeless work from Martinho Da Vila – a set that's every bit as powerful as his classic albums from the 70s – and done with an even more personal sound! Martinho first rose to fame at a time when there was a big wave of new samba recordings in Brazil – a mode that still held onto the roots, but also pushed the music with a fullness in terms of production – never too commercial, yet still quite different than the approach used here – which is very intimate, and maybe makes the album one of the singer's most impressive ever! The passage of years has only made Martinho's vocals better, and amidst the spare percussion and stringed instrumentation, he really carries the sound of the record beautifully – making us feel as if we've stumbled upon to his genius all over again, but at an even more powerful level. Titles include "Samba Sem Letra", "Amanha E Sabado", "Danadinho Danado", "Choro Chorao", "Soul Brasileiro", "Muita Luz", "Sarava Sarava", and "Daqui De La E De Acola". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisComplete Jack Johnson (5 CD set) ... CD
Sony, 1971. Used 5 CDs ... $49.99
5 discs of Jack Johnson! Probably more Jack Johnson than most people could take, but for the few out there, like us, who can never get enough electric Miles (kind of like some of Miles own favorite diversions from that period) this box is a dream come true! Unlike the later live sides, the grooves here are pretty sparse, with a wide open approach that would later get replaced by frenzied multi-linear soloing, but still with the loose energy and funked up rhythms that would mark Miles work during the early 70s. Like the Bitches Brew and In A Silent Way boxes, this set really highlights Teo Macero's tape wizardry, when you compare the raw takes, of which most numbers get represented here in 3, 4 or 5 versions, to the edited versions that were finally released. If you want to utilize ye' olde program feature on your stereo, you can can arrange several different versions of the complete album, which is a pretty fantastic feature for obsessives such as ourselves! With "Willie Nelson", "Johnny Bratton", "Go Ahead John", "Duran", "Sugar Ray", "Right Off", "Yesternow", "Honky Tonk", "Ali", "Konda", "Nem Um Talvez", "Little High People", "Little Church" and "The Mask".

Miles DavisMilestones ... CD
Sony, 1958. Used ... $3.99
One of our 50s favorites by Miles Davis – and a record that offers the same twin-sax sound as his classic Kind Of Blue – with both John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley working alongside Miles in the group! Rhythm here is by the Prestige-era trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but it's the two saxophonists who really help Davis shape the feel of the record, pushing things past the initial Coltrane/Davis groove with a really wonderful sense of space and sound! Titles include the classic "Milestones", plus "Two Bass Hit", "Dr Jeckyll", and "Sid's Ahead". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony, 1961. Used ... $4.99
The tenor sax here makes the album a standout – as John Coltrane still works with Miles Davis on 2 tracks for the record, but Blue Note stalwart Hank Mobley joins in on the rest! The approach is similar to that of the classic Coltrane/Davis years – and in a way, the record's kind of a swan song to that period – one of the last studio session that Miles would cut in such an unabashedly sweet and lyrical way. And while Mobley's always better known for his harder-blown notes at Blue Note, he sounds totally great here next to Davis – really keeping up the gentle spirit and spaciousness of the record, and working with a gentleness that surpasses even his work on the legendary Soul Station album. Rhythm is by the trio of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and titles include Miles' classic version of "Someday My Prince Will Come", plus "Old Folks", "Teo", "Drad-Dog", and "Pfrancing". Includes the bonus tracks "Blues No. 2" and "Someday My Prince Will Come (alt take)". CD

Sony (Japan), 1970s/2002. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The classic work of Earth Wind & Fire gets remixed by a host of hip DJs from Tokyo, London, and New York! The package follows the style and spirit of the Jackson Five Soul Source albums – but goes them one better, as the material on the album's far hipper to begin with, and really lends itself to some great remixes. All the warm colors and jazzy tones of Earth Wind & Fire's classic work are firmly in place here, handled with great respect by a generation of underground talents who've been deeply influenced by the group, and who proudly take their music into the 21st Century! Titles include "Brazilian Rhyme" remixed by Shinichi Osawa, "Let's Groove" remixed by Phil Asher, "September" remixed by Fantastic Plastic Machine, "Can't Hide Love" remixed by Masters At Work, "Fantasy" remixed by Blaze, "September '99" remixed by Danny Krivit, "Getaway" remixed by Hiroshi Yamashita, "After The Love Has Gone" remixed by Sofaking, and "Boogie Wonderland" remixed by Slow Supreme.

Sony, 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent work by this oft-overlooked east coast harmony group! Like a rare few groups at the time, The Ebonys had a sound that mixed male and female harmonies – in a sweetly mellow sound that was a lot hipper than more famous groups that used the style, and which had all the best elements of the Philly group approach of the early 70s. The set features some great tracks by Gamble & Huff – plus the group's incredible tune "Life In The Country" – a slow mellow stepper that never gets old! Other tracks include "Hook Up & Get Down", "I Believe", "Sexy Ways", "Nation Time", and "You're The Reason Why". Expanded edition features 4 bonus tracks – "Do It", "It's Forever", "Do You Like The Way I Love", and "Determination". CD

FlamengoKure V Hodinkach (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Supraphon/Sony (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $32.99
Jazzy sounds from a really heavy Czech group of the early 70s – maybe one of the hardest-hitting combos to play for the mighty Supraphon label! As with contemporary Supraphon jazz acts, there's a definite ear for some of the more electrified fusion styles of the period – but these guys are also equally a rock group too – less long-winded than some of their prog contemporaries, and graced with really strong lead vocals at the front – which are a perfect fit for the fuzzier guitar licks that crop up from time to time! But that's not the main focus, either – as there's lots of great instrumentation on tenor, flute, and soprano sax – really opening up with some nice edges in ways that are very different than more familiar jazz rock styles. Titles include "Chvile Chvil", "Par Stoleti", "Doky Vlaky Hlad A Boty", "Kure V Hodinkach", "Stale Dal", and "Ja A Dym". CD features the bonus tracks "Tyden V Elektrickem Meste" and "Kazdou Chvili".

An amazing record, and one that forever transformed the sound of opera in the US – the amazing summation of all the many musical ideas that Philip Glass had been cooking up since the 60s, done as a mindblowing stage presentation with Robert Wilson! Voices, organ, reeds, and piano come together in wonderful lines that go on and on, seemingly forever, in endless variations and rivulets of sound – as simple in structure as the leaner small combo minimalist work from Glass – but with a very different style in the fuller setting, with a sonic quality that still is as groundbreaking today as it was back in the 70s! 4LP set features all acts, plus the very cool "Knee Play" segments too!

The set was recorded at the end of the 70s with amazing fidelity – and features a unique lineup that includes Webster Lewis on additional keyboards and Alphonse Mouzon on drums – alongside more familiar partners Bennie Maupin on reeds, Paul Jackson on bass, and Bill Summers on percussion! Given these last three, there's almost a slight Headhunters feel to the set – but the overall groove is a bit more mellow, with some wonderfully spacey touches that are super-soulful – and miles above anything that Herbie was recording in the US at the time.

Temperton handled arrangements and a lot of songwriting, and most cuts have lead vocals from Wayne Anthony – who does a nice job with the lyrics, but still leaves Herbie some space for keyboard solos too – in a groove that's a fair bit warmer than some of the other keyboard-heavy soul records of the time. Production is by Narada Michael Walden, Herbie, and Jay Graydon – and titles include the jazzy stepping gem "Getting To The Good Part", plus "Lite Me Up", "The Bomb", "Can't Hide Your Love", "The Fun Tracks", and "Motor Mouth".

Sony (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
Tremendous work from pianist Ashley Henry – a British pianist who seems to be soaring out of the underground to become one of the leading figures in overseas jazz – a role that he definitely fills with this fantastic major label debut! The set's every bit as great as Henry's previous material, but also expands the palette too – showcasing a bold musical vision that's equally great on vocal and instrumental fronts, as Henry welcomes in a lineup of guests who include Makaya McCraven on drums, Theo Croker and Keyon Harrold on trumpets, Judi Jackson and Milton Suggs on vocals, and the team of saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd. Yet the work is clearly Henry's own – great tunes that have a soaring, spiritual current – maybe rooted in a tradition that runs from Woody Shaw through Robert Glasper, then finds its flowering in the really rich soil of the contemporary London scene. Titles include "Realisations", "Star Child", "I Still Believe", "Sunrise", "Battle", "Dark Honey", "Ahmed", "Introspection", "I Still Believe", "Colors", and "Between The Lines". CD

Sony, 1969. Used ... $6.99
The debut album from Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – a brilliant little set, and quite possibly the truest realization of his subtle acoustic genius! The sound here is free from cliches that later got in the way with Hicks – and the album's a refreshing return to roots, but without any of the too-posturing modes of other groups like this from the time! Hicks keeps things real cool here – very subtle, and quite spare at times – with elements of acoustic swing, bluegrass, and country all bubbling underneath – but an overall execution that's somewhat focused and urbane. There's none of the too old-timey moments you might expect – and if anything, we're impressed at how freshly contemporary a bunch of acoustic hippies can sound here! Titles include "Slow Movin", "I Scare Myself", "Canned Music", "How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away", "It's Bad Grammar Baby", and "Jukie's Ball". CD

A dreamy little record, and one that's every bit as warm and sunny as its cover – served up here in a mix of 70s Japanese fusion and soundtrack modes, with a relatively straight vibe overall! There's some of the whimsy of the artists' other work, but nicely filtered into modes that showcase their growing participation in the city pop years – but always with a kind of understated quality that makes the whole thing so great! There's a nicely laidback vibe to the whole thing, which breaks a bit when a jazzier moment comes into the mix – and titles are all in Japanese, or we'd tell you more about the record.

JamiroquaiTravelling Without Moving ... CD
Sony, 1996. Used ... $1.99
A mindblower from Jamiroquai – the album that really broke them out of the box, thanks to an increasingly complicated sense of rhythm! For the set, Jay and the group pulled up some of the more dynamic sounds from the London underground, and wove them together with their increasingly great songwriting – coming up with tunes that played beautifully on the dancefloor, yet also offered deeper listening than on previous Jamiroquai efforts! There's still some great 70s elements here, but there's also a more cosmic, righteous vibe too – a hint at spacey London to come, but sent home with a bit more polish here. Titles include "Virtual Insanity", "Cosmic Girl", "Everyday", "Alright", "High Times", "Travelling Without Moving", "Spend A Lifetime", "Use The Force", and "Didjital Vibrations".

Supraphon/Sony (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $32.99
One of the hippest jazz groups going in Czechoslovakia during the 70s – the mighty Jazz Q, a cool fusion combo who really knew how to groove! The group's lineup includes a lot of electric keyboards and guitars – and while some tracks have them jamming out in a really rock-inspired way, there's some other tunes that open up with a great jazzy sound. Side two of the album kicks off with an amazing modal groover called "The Wizard" – a cut that builds and builds on riffs of bass, conga, and keyboards – before soaring into a sweet female lead vocal that sounds like Lani Hall at her best! Other tracks include "Lost Soul", "Starbird", "From Dark To Light", and "Epilog". CD features two bonus tracks – "Mlyn" and "Konstelace". CD

Inoue Kan/Masato Matsutoya/Hiroshi SatoSeaside Lovers (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sony/Great Tracks (Japan), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $49.99
A lovely little record that really lives up to the sunny, dreamy image on the cover – relaxed tunes that evoke a mellow afternoon by the seaside – but in a mode that's filled with some of the coolest Japanese electro touches of the time! The record is part instrumental, part vocal – almost a blend of the YMO generation with some of the more minimal scene, and maybe just a dose of city pop soulfulness – all of which makes for a record that really lives up to its promise – on titles that include "Sunset Afternoon", "Wind Wave & Wineglass", "Evening Shadows", "Melting Blue", and "Lovers Paradise".

Kimiko Kasai with Oliver NelsonKimiko Kasai In Person ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1973. Used ... $11.99
A mighty nice live performance from Japanese vocalist Kimiko Kasai – one that features Oliver Nelson leading the band, soloing on alto, and even writing all the arrangements! Nelson brings the same soulful swing to the record as his famous late 60s backings for American jazz singers – although Kimiko definitely makes the tunes her own, with her unique phrasing – which partly comes from her slightly-accented approach to the English language! Nelson steps out on the instrumental theme "3210" – and other titles include "Guess Who I Saw Today", "Goody Goody", "Go Away Little Boy", "Some Other Day", "It's Alright With Me", and "How Insensitive".

Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1978. Used ... $6.99
A blue man, without his group – and a sweet 70s fusion set from guitarist Steve Khan! The set's got that best Columbia Records groove from the time – a sound that could easily cross over to fusion fans on both sides of the tracks – those who dig soulful undercurrents, thanks to the album's keyboards from Don Grolnick – and those who might like a bit more rockish-lines, thanks to Khan's raspy edge on his guitar. Things never get too jamming, and there's a nice sense of space that definitely helps keep the soul of the record intact – on tracks that include "Some Downtime", "Daily Bulls", "Daily Valley", and "The Little Ones".

Denon/Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $56.99
Japanese singer Carmen Maki works here with Blues Creation – on a set that's headier and heavier than just about anything she ever recorded! The group themselves are amazing – searing with guitar work that rivals the best of the Anglo blues-inspired hard rock combos of the period – and when Carmen comes into the mix, she uses an equally soulful approach, turned towards freakier styles that might have made Christine Perfect run away in fear! The combination is fantastic – the kind of special set that makes this period of the Japanese scene such a standout for collectors of this sort of material – on titles that include "I Can't Live For Today", "Motherless Child", "Understand", "Empty Heart", and "Lord I Can't Be Going No More".

Marcelo D2Meu Samba E Assim ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $2.99
Marcelo's not lying with the title to this one – as the record bristles with a lot more Brazilian influences than some of his previous work – a brilliant blend of the classic and the modern, served up with plenty of hip hop touches! But while certainly in the hip hop camp, Marcelo's also deeply respectful to the sounds that influence his music – and he's got a subtle way of presenting his rhymes here that really moves away from a simplistic "beats with Brazilian" approach! The balance is hard to describe accurately, but it really comes off well here – and overall the record impresses us more than anything we've heard from Marcelo before, and over and above the Portuguese lyrics, the album's almost worth it alone for Marcelo's inventive production! Titles include "Sinistro", "E Assim Que Se Faz", "E Preciso Lutar", "Meu Samba E Assim", "Lada", "Pra Que Amor", and "Falador". CD

MatadorsMatadors (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Supraphon/Sony (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $32.99
Czech rock from the end of the 60s – played by a groovy group with strong beat-heavy tendencies! Although they hail from behind the iron curtain, The Matadors sing in English – working with instrumentation that's heavy on the Hammond, and clearly influenced by mod work from the UK a few years before – especially given that there's a bit of a subcurrent of 60s soul than runs through some of these tunes! There's a near-perfect British sound going on here – but one that has some slightly odd twists and turns too – like seeing the Brit beat group years through a strange sort of prism, one that further abstracts their own interpretation of American musical influences. Titles include "Bad Bad Bird"," My Girl", "Get Down From The Tree", "Shotgun", "You'll Be Mine", "I Just Hope", and "Hate Everything Except Of Hatter". CD features four more bonus tracks too! CD

Sony, 1956. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Johnny Mathis' self-titled debut from 1956 – an all-jazz album that's quite different than most of his other work! Mathis here is working in a decidedly modern style – none of the smooth, mellow pop of his hits – and instead awash in sharp edges, rich colors, and modern sounds served up by the charts of arrangers Gil Evans, Teo Macero, and John Lewis! Johnny's vocals have that familiar warm and smooth quality, but also a subtle sense of tension and drama too – one that really makes the tunes, even the familiar ones, come alive as miniature little portraits in sound – painted with a brush that's confident, but youthful enough to be fresh! Players include Phil Woods, Art Farmer, JJ Johnson, Tony Scott, Hal McKusick, and John Lewis – and titles include "Street Of Dreams", "Caravan", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Star Eyes", "Autumn In Rome", "Babalu", "Fly Me To The Moon", and "Angel Eyes".

Harold MelvinWake Up Everybody (expanded version – with bonus track) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Sony, 1975. Used ... $9.99
Teddy Pendergrass and crew get a bit more political than on earlier releases, and adopt the righteous bubbling soul groove that had put the O'Jays over the top a few years earlier – with incredible results! The title cut – "Wake Up Everybody" – would prove to be a great example of the political Philly International hit formula applied to socially conscious themes, but the record probably scored even bigger with the club crossover hit "Don't Leave Me This Way". Other tracks include "Keep On Lovin You", "Tell The World How I Feel About Cha Baby", "I'm Searching For A Love", and "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good" – the latter two of which also feature female vocals by Sharon Paige. Bobby Martin, Norman Harris, and Ronnie Baker did the arrangements – and this was Teddy's last LP with the group. Includes bonus track "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton Mix)". CD

PeddlersHow Cool Is Cool? – The Complete CBS Recordings ... CD
Sony (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A heck of a cool group – with a really cool sound! The Peddlers were a late 60s British trio, with a sound that was part soul, part jazz, part supper-club vocals – all done with a clean approach and a nice instrumental twist that often included a bit of Hammond organ! A big chunk of the work on this CD was arranged by Brit easy maestro Keith Mansfield, and as such, has a gently funky sound that really takes it miles from its original roots – as familiar numbers get transformed into nicely party-rocking tunes with a very hip groove. More than a few tracks by the group have become favorites of beatheads over the years, and listening to the whole set, we've got to say that there's a wealth of great tunes here – way more than we ever knew the group had recorded! The package features 42 cuts in all – 3 albums worth of material, plus bonus tracks – with titles that include "Sneakin Up On You", "Stormy Weather", "Smile", "Who Can I Turn To", "Southern Woman", "Ebb Tide", "Just A Pretty Song", "Lost Continent", "On A Clear Day", "Nobody Likes Me", "Wasting My Time", and "Say No More".

Czech singer Marie Rotrova joins the instrumental group Plamenaci (aka Flamingo) for this really great set from the mid 70s – a jazz rock gem to match some of the grooviest work from the UK scene from a few years before! Instrumentation in the group is great – lots of strong work on saxes and flute, plus sharp lead guitar and organ mixed with a bit of added keyboards too – topped with vocals on most tracks, but still given more than enough room for the group to do their thing from an instrumental standpoint – which is often a nice approach to funky fusion, ala some of the best of the Eastern Bloc scene of the time! Titles include "Dvojite Salto", "Cas Motylu", "Quasimodo", "Malovana Kapela", "Lasky Zen", and "Posledni Okamzik". CD features two bonus tracks – "Zlom Vaz" and "Modre Oci Mladi". CD

Early work from singer Michal Prokop – later to become a famous politician in the Czech Republic, but here working with his early combo Framus 5! The music has this majestic quality that's kind of post-beat group – still some organ in the mix, but used in loftier ways – yet never really prog, either – as Michal's got these surprisingly soulful Czech vocals that make for a really great match with the instrumentation – almost like some Iron Curtain take on mod modes from London from a few years before.

Sony, 1958/1960. Used ... $9.99
Two excellent albums from Jimmy Rushing – packed together on one CD, with extra tracks and great liner notes! Rushing Lullabies is a killer album by Jimmy – and certainly one of his best later records! The album includes the amazing track "Russian Lullaby", done in a totally swinging jazz version with Ray Bryant, Buddy Tate, and Sir Charles Thompson on organ. The track's incredible, and still sends shivers down our spines when we hear it – even though we've owned it for years! Other material's pretty darn great, too – including "Three Long Years", "Did You Ever", "I Cried for You", and "You Can't Run Around". Great organ by Thompson really makes the set swing! Jimmy & The Big Brass is another excellent session – and his approach to the material is extremely thoughtful, and always tinged with a good sense of jazz, making it swing a bit more than on earlier recordings. On this album, he's singing to a set of arrangements by Jimmy Mundy, Buck Clayton, and Nat Pierce – and titles include "Jimmy's Blues", "It's A Sin To Tell A Lie", "I'm Coming Virginia", and "Knock Me A Kiss". 25 tracks in all!

Tracks include two originals co-written with Letta Mbulu – and the mix of South African roots and Cali soul is a bit similar to some of Letta's late 70s work – maybe a bit more upbeat than the political climate in SA warranted at the time, but that sometimes happens when an overseas artist spends a bit of time on the west coast.

A Whole New Thing, indeed – the first album ever from Sly &The Family Stone – and a record that would forever change the face of pop, funk, and soul music! Even at this early point, all the group's best energy is firmly in place – a mad mix of raw funky roots with righteous late 60s energy – all served up with a lot more focus than most of the indie acts of the time, with enough of a punch to cross the group over to a much wider audience! Most tunes are short, hard, and tight – and the album features few familiar hits – which almost makes it a new discovery if you've only ever heard Sly's work from a "greatest hits" perspective. Titles include "Dog", "Bad Risk", "Underdog", "Run Run Run", "Turn Me Loose", and "That Kind Of Person". Also, as a special bonus, this CD includes the previously unreleased track "What Would I Do".

Sony (Japan), 2006. Used ... $9.99
Marcos Valle revisits a host of his older tunes – and re-presents the work in a quirky electronic mode! The album's less a remix album than it is a "remake" one – as Marcos is collaborating here with Marcio Menescal of Bossacucanova, in a groove that's quite similar to the sound of that group! As with some of Bossacucanova's best work, most of the tunes here are older ones either penned by Valle or made famous by him – recorded here with Fender Rhodes and vocals from Marcos, plenty of keyboards and rhythms from Marcio, and additional flutes from Renato Franco and extra vocals from Patricia Alvi. The sound's quite different than most of Valle's other recent recordings – a fair bit more abstract overall – and titles include "A Ra", "Samba De Verao", "Veio Veio Vai Vai", "Nova Bossa Nova", "Os Grilos", "Mentiras", and "O Que Eu Gosto De Voce".

Hopps' work on the record is really wonderful – poetic and soulful, with a deep-voiced quality that sets the mood of the album from the very first tune.

A pivotal record in the career of this brilliant Japanese saxophonist – a set recorded in New York with a trio players from the American scene – done in a style that's even more freewheeling than most of Sadao Watanabe's previous work! Watanabe had always worked with unusual tones and phrasing from the start – but this album has him really stretching out on long long tracks – working on both soprano sax and flute, with Chick Corea on acoustic and electric piano, Miroslav Vitous on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums! The title track is an open-ended jam that takes up all of side one – and Watanabe balances things out with a bit of lyricism from time to time, showing him to be as rich in conception as the regular sort of reed players who might have worked with a trio like this. Titles include "Round Trip – Going & Coming", "Sao Paolo", and "Pastoral". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent live outing from pianist Denny Zeitlin – recorded at the height of his early powers! The session's got a fresly new conception to piano-based jazz – a style that resonates nicely with the best 60s work of Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett, sharing some of the tenderness of the former and the sense of color of the latter. Rhythm is from the team of Charlie Haden on bass and Jerry Granelli on drums – and Haden's bass is an especially powerful force in the set, pushing out the tunes with a flowing quality that pulsates nicely even on the more gentle numbers.

A really special slice of Japanese jazz from the 70s – tracks from the sorts of records that make that scene so different than any others we can think of – especially in the way the musicians evolved familiar styles into personal grooves of their own! Instrumentation varies with each track, and often includes a fusing of acoustic elements with a few slight electric touches – almost never in familiar fusion ways, but instead with this organic energy that's really wonderful – and which gives almost all of these tunes a really special sort of glow! The quality of the music is a bit hard to sum up in words, but the package provides a perfect introduction to the range of great Japanese jazz albums issued by Columbia in the 70s – with titles that include "Shrimp Dance" by Hiroshi Suzuki, "On The Horizon" by Kazumi Watanabe, "Love More Train" by Terumasa Hino, "Breeze" by Hiromasa Suzuki, "Up Into The Sky" by Fumio Itabashi, "Babylonia Wind" by Kiyoshi Sugimoto, and "For My Little Bird" by Shigeru Mukai.

VariousTokyo Dreaming ... CD
Sony/We Want Sounds (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
A great dip into the wide world of Japanese pop in the early 80s – a set that does a nice job of bringing in some elements from the world of jazz, and showing just how much a range of electric modes flowed together in Tokyo at the time! Some of these artists were doing more offbeat work, others straighter jazz – but the tunes here are all catchy and have a nice current of soul – but without some of the more polished commercial modes of the city pop era too! The balance is a special one – with a quality that really makes this collection a great one – put together with a thoughtful ear that really takes you on a long journey through the catalog of Sony/Columbia Japan, and the related Better Days label. Titles include "Soul Life" by Haruo Chikada & Vibratones, "Chinatown Rose" by Kazue Itoh, "Shinzo No Tobira" by Mariah, "Watashi No Bus" by Yumi Murata, "Treasure Hunter" by Jun Fukamachi, "Self Control" by Chika Asamoto, "Tokyo" by Kyoko Furuya, "Room" by Akira Sakata, "The Word II" by Shigeo Sekito, and "Tokyo Joe" by Kazumi Watanabe.

VariousTurkish Ladies – Female Singers From Turkey 1974 to 1988 ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
A much-needed look at the huge legacy of female singers in Turkish music during the 70s – one that stands as a great complement to so much of the recent reissues of male artists from the same time! Much of this music shares qualities with reissues on labels like Pharaway Sounds or Finders Keepers – in that the singers often have a strong sense of drama, mixed with a really evocative blend of modern and older instrumentation – electric and acoustic, Western and Eastern, all served up as a way of pulling folk roots into a more urban milieu! The package is very well-done, and not only features detailed notes, but also English translations of the lyrics – for songs that include "Var Oy" by Ferda Gul, "Vamyorum" by Gulden Karabocek, "Ara Leyli" by Gul Sorgun, "Vikilla Koyler" by Dilber Dogan, "Bir Sans Daha Ver" by Huri Sapan, "Tut Kalbimi Tut" by Nese Alkan, "Olmeden De Vasamak" by Esmeray, and "Sen Bir Vana" by Gonul Vazar.

✨✧ CherrelleAffair ... CD
Tabu/Sony (Japan), 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis classic – and key proof that their pairing with singer Cherrelle was a mighty good thing! Cherrelle's got a voice that's perfect for the beat-heavy approach of the pair – light enough to dance around the rhythms, but bold enough with a presence all its own, too – a quality that helps keep most of these tunes pretty darn catchy, while still staying in front of some of the blander mainstream soul of the time. The groove here is practically early new jack at times – with some great influences from hip hop and electro in the mix – and titles include "Looks Aren't Everything", "Affair", "Discreet", "Everything I Miss At Home", "Keep It Inside", "My Friend", and "What More Can I Do For You". CD
(Out of print, includes obi.)

✨✧ ClashClash (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most stunning debut albums of the 70s – and a set that burst on the scene with a sound that summed up a generation, but which had never been heard this clearly before! This self-titled Clash album was different from other landmarks of the time – work by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and others – as the group had a sense of raw power, but also a tunefulness too – a way of pushing their message into territory that others wouldn't have reached – with tunes that were as surprisingly hummable as they were politically correct! There's a bit less Jamaican influence here than in later Clash years, but that quality is still present somewhat – and over the years, this is definitely a set we can return to again and again – with no sense of apology or outdated ideals at all. Nearly every cut's a classic – and titles include "Janie Jones", "Career Opportunities", "Police & Thieves", "Garageland", "Clash City Rockers", "I Fought The Law", "White Riot", "London's Burning", "White Man In Hammersmith Palais", and "I'm So Bored With The USA". CD
(Out of print blu-spec 2 pressing – with obi!)
