Jorge BenSilencio No Brooklin ... CD
Atoll Music (France), 1967. Used ... $33.99
A fantastic early album from Jorge Ben – and one that's also a bit obscure, given that it was one of the few that he didn't cut for Philips Records during the first decade of his career! The album's one of Jorge's most upbeat, most lively – with the kind of ebullient mix of samba and soul influences that he brought to his first big hits – but recorded here in a way that's maybe even more frenetic, especially when piano lines spin out quickly next to his incredible vocals – with a style that's almost soul jazz at times! The whole thing's wonderful – a record that matches, if not tops any of his other 60s albums – and titles include the killer "A Jovem Samba" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Nascimento De Um Principe Africando", "Menina Gata Augusta", "Si Wanda", "Rosa Mas Que Nada", "Amor De Carnaval", and "Todo Colorida".

✨✧ Bionic BoogieBionic Boogie ... LP
Polydor, 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem! Luther Vandross isn't on board this time around, but the overall groove is still totally great – upbeat, soaring, and put together with a jazzy undercurrent that really keeps things interesting – far more so than most other mainstream disco sets of the time! Brad Baker – of B Baker Chocolate Company – handled the arrangements – and the grooves spin out nicely from Diamond's keyboards, and a tight mix of strings and jazzy horns. Vocals are from the soulful trio of Gwen Guthrie, Ullanda McCullough, and Zachary Sanders – and titles include "Dance Little Dreamer", "Risky Changes", "Boogie Boo", "We Must Believe In Music", "Feel Like Dancing", and "Don't Lose The Number".

The bag's got a shoulder strap, to be worn like a messenger bag – and the main flap is as big as the body, so that anything inside is tucked away and safe – but easy to reach the minute you spin the bag around and open the flap! Holds up to 25 records, and made in a very durable style. Bag

David Bowie, Marlene Dietrich, & OthersShoner Gigolo Armer Gigolo (Just A Gigolo) ... LP
Ariola (Germany), 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A mix of sounds and styles for this film set in Weimar Berlin – with Marlene Dietrich as a madam with male gigolos – one of whom is played by David Bowie, at a time when he was famously living in West Berlin, and working with Brian Eno! The film's nothing like that at all, though – as it's a period piece, with performances by Kim Novak and David Hemmings, the latter of whom directed – and the music is an unusual mix of imagined 20s elements, but often given an odd late 70s spin. The real highlight is "Revolutionary Song" – an odd tune written by Bowie, and which features him scat singing this really compelling melody with echoes of Brecht. Marlena Dietrich also delivers one of her last recordings – a haunting take on "Just A Gigolo" – which is then oddly served up as a disco tune by The Village People at the end! The set also features a mix of other instrumentals and vocal tracks – with work by by Manhattan Transfer, Pasadena Roof Orchestra, and The Gunther Fischer Orchestra. LP, Vinyl record album

Origin, 2014. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful set by contemporary jazz guitar great Bobby Broom and his excellent trio – who put a timeless spin on standards that Broom holds in high esteem as sturdy mementos of their time – without even a whiff of nostalgia! His enthusiasm for the material shines brightly throughout, with solos that have just the right balance of reverence for the composition, and a willingness to play around and do is own thing. He's backed by perfectly perceptive bassist Dennis Carroll and drummer Makaya McCraven. Includes "Sweet And Lovely", "My Ideal", "Just One Of Those Things", "My Shining Hour", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "The Heather On The Hill", "The Jitterbug Waltz", "Oh, Lady Be Good" and sweet closing take on "The Tennessee Waltz".

Brother AhhDivine Music (Sea/Meditation/Searching) (3CD set) ... CD
Manufactured, 1978/1981/1985. New Copy 3CD ... $25.99
Three never-issued albums from Brother Ah – the enigmatic musician who may be known best for his work with Sun Ra, and his rare album on Strata East! Both of those moments date from earlier years, though – and past that time, Brother Ah was still working strongly on some amazing musical ideas of his own – work that includes the three albums presented in this package, which together really mark a shift for both Ah and some of his spiritual jazz contemporaries as the 70s moved on! The set begins with the beautiful set The Sea – recorded in 1978, with a long-flowing sound that's quite hypnotic, and very much in the spiritual territory of post-Coltrane material – including work by Trane's wife Alice. Brother Ah plays flute, in these fantastic lines that spin out slowly and echo strongly – amidst a mix of percussion, violin, mbira, bass, and drums – often used in ways that build beautifully, and which provide a great introduction to both the sung and spoken passages – presented by Abena Walker, Jeanean Gibbs, and Nataska Hassan Youssef. Titles include "Nuba", "Far Away", "The Village Drum", "Visoins", and "Africa We Are Your Children". Meditation is from a few years later, and has a different makeup – a sound that's much more spare overall, and which just features Brother Ah on flute, zither, and "nature sounds" – with help from Cleo Jomo Faulks on mbira and gong! The tunes have an earthier feel than you might guess from the album's title – still somewhat meditative, but also more open to the vibes of nature than the space of the studio – with moments that feel more more like the organic sounds of the young Moondog, or maybe some of Alice Coltrane's more home-made moments. Titles include "Stillness", "Spirit World", "Close Your Eyes & See", and "Song Of The Unseen". Last up is Searching – a record from 1985 that maybe moves the spiritual agenda from the political to the personal – that shift towards more interior solutions that some musicians took in the 80s, especially as funding for some kinds of spiritual jazz albums fell by the wayside, and some artists had to adapt to the new age underground. Yet although that shift might be in place here, Brother Ah is still as righteous as ever – just equipped with a slightly different voice – as he works alongside some electronics and percussion from Richard Ashman, and blows trumpet and a variety of flutes, while also handling percussion and harmonica in very spacious ways. The record is more about extended sound textures than individual instrumentation – and titles include "I Am", "Going Within", "Inner Voice", and "Know Thyself". First time release for all three records – presented in a really great package! CD

George ColemanBongo Joe ... CD
Arhoolie, 1968. Used ... $9.99
A record that sounds unlike anything else we can think of – a set that features raw, raspy vocals from George Coleman – sung over his own highly percussive work on a garbage can! The style is tremendous – hardly the gimmicky one you might expect, and a really darkly brooding sort of approach that's really unique – echoey metal lines that spin out with surprising melodic touches, recorded in ways that allow for lots of echo and reverb – while George's vocals are upfront in the mix, captured with a really intimate quality. The whole thing is incredible – one of those albums that makes digging up records so worthwhile – a real one-of-a-kind recording! Titles include "Transistor Radio", "Dog Eat Dog", "I Wish I Could Sing", "Innocent Little Doggy", and "Cool It". CD

Mike CooperOh Really!? ... LP
Pye/Trading Places (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
An early classic from British guitarist Mike Cooper – an artist who was part of that unique moment of mid 60s British blues – part folk, part rock, and with a quality that definitely paved the way for many other modes to come! The set has Mike Cooper mostly on guitar and vocals, in a style that's part Piedmont, part Delta blues – but also given a more folksy spin, and graced with Cooper's unusual vocals – almost making the whole thing feel like a spare acoustic version of Canned Heat territory – with titles that include "Maggie Campbell", "Saturday Blues", "Electric Chair", "Crow Jane", and "You're Gonna Be Sorry".

The record's got a jazzy,s winging style that's really great – and features the tasty hit "Bee Bom", a scatting masterpiece that's one of Sammy's best tunes ever – plus some other lively numbers, all given the beautiful Sammy D spin! Includes a stellar take on "I Married An Angel", plus "Guys & Dolls", "Come On Strong", "Make Someone Happy", and "Some Days Everything Goes Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy belts it out wonderfully on a set of show-stoppers – tunes with Broadway sources, but redone here by Sam with a tight, jazzy finish! The approach makes the record one of his best of the 60s – a really solid set that virtually reinvents each tune – giving them the Davis positive spin, and really stepping out strongly on titles that include "Once In A Lifetime", "Begin The Beguine", "Something's Coming", "Can't We Be Friends", "Too Close For Comfort", and "A Lot Of Livin To Do".

EmbryoEmbryo's Rache (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Loneos Editions (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... About December 20, 2020
Early prog jazz genius from the mighty Embryo – and an album that perfectly fuses their love of world rhythms and electric jamming grooves! The percussion by Edgar Hofmann ranges from playful to hypnotic – with heavy drums and basslines crafting some incredible rhythms that spin out strongly – sometimes jamming, sometimes a bit looser – and often topped with great work on flute and this ultra-cool Leslie piano, which has a nice fuzzy sound. The album's got lots of other sweet organ and mellotron lines – and Hofmann also plays soprano sax and violin as well. Titles include "Tausendfussler", "Time", "Revenge", "Espagna Si Franco Finished", "Try To Be", and "Change". LP, Vinyl record album

EquaticsDoin It!!!! ... CD
Now Again, 1972. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Rare 70s funky soul from The Equatics – just the kind of record that keeps us digging and still excited after all these years – resurrected by the like minded diggers at Now Again! You know the kind of album we're talking about, the ones you come across with enigmatic cover art, no names on the back you recognize or even anything indicating where or when it's from. Then you take a spin and it's the real thing from the get go! The production is nice and raw but not ragged, and a funky vibe that groups today emulate but just can't recapture. This set's mid 70s R&B, mostly instrumental but with a few vocal numbers, all nicely done up in a very groovy, funky fashion. There's a couple of nice covers, like their Isaac Hayes-ish take on "Walk On By" and a nice rendition of "Ain't No Sunshine", but the rest of the set's mostly originals, like "Merry-Go-Round" and some nice raggedy instrumentals like "What They Doin?", "Santana" done up in parts 1 and 2 (maybe on a 45 somewhere. . .), "Cisco Fare" and the jazzy "The Touch Of You". Amazing! CD

Everly BrothersRoots ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1968. Used ... $14.99
Sublime country rock and superb vocals from the Everly Brothers – an album as close to our hearts as the much more hipster-celebrated work of the era by Gram Parsons, the Byrds and others! The Everlys grasped onto their significance throughout the 60s by hopping from trend to trend with little success – but they finally nailed it in 1968 with this effort. (Artistically, if not commercially.) The boys apply their staggering harmonies to country and country-ish material, adding their own unique spin to the tunes – and earnestly work in some montages of their family radio shows from the early 50s! It's easily their most endearing work of the 60s. Produced by Lenny Waronker with strings by Nick DeCaro. Includes wonderful versions of Jimmie Rodgers' "T For Texas", "Shady Grove", Randy Newman's "Illinois", Ray Price's "You Done Me Wrong", Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" and "Sing Me Back Home", plus "Ventura Boulvard" and "Turn Around" written by Ron Elliot of Beau Brummels.

Everly BrothersDown In The Bottom – The Country Rock Sessions 1966 to 1968 (Hit Sound/Sing/Roots/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Warner/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD set ... $24.99
Three overlooked gems by the Everly Brothers – all very different than their early hits, and very much in the hippest territory the duo would ever hit! First up is The Hit Sound Of The Everly Brothers – a really amazing little album, and not a set of the pair's earlier hits, but instead an all new recording that has the duo moving into rootsier modes that rub shoulders with the same country rock territory of The Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers! In truth, Don and Phil Everly are probably more important to the rise of the sound than anyone else – as their early work took a bluegrass harmony style, and moved it onto the rock charts – yet here, they almost seem to move backwards, and nod back to their roots – while still showcasing plenty of electric guitar in the mix. Most tunes are hits by other artists, but transformed with very hip late 60s Warner presentation – think Beau Brummels on Bradley's Barn – and titles include "Devil's Child", "Legend In My Own Time", "I'm Movin On", "Let's Go Get Stoned", "She Never Smiles Anymore", and "Sea Of Heartache". Sing is a record that has The Everly Brothers in a completely different mode than before, as you might guess from their look on the cover – a record that has Don and Phil moving into some very cool rootsy territory – really opening the door towards a generation of country rock to come, but at a level that reminds us that they maybe got the whole thing going in the first place! Production is in a very cool late 60s Warner Brothers mode – echoes of folk, psych, and sunshine in the mix – but all handled with this mature style that's at once sophisticated, yet completely down to earth – in a set of original tunes by the brothers, plus some gems from Terry Slater too – completely wonderful music that includes "Bowling Green", "A Voice Within", "I'm Finding It Rough", "Do You", "Mary Jane", "It's All Over", and "Talking To The Flowers". Roots is sublime country rock and superb vocals from the Everly Brothers – an album as close to our hearts as the much more hipster-celebrated work of the era by Gram Parsons, the Byrds and others! The Everlys grasped onto their significance throughout the 60s by hopping from trend to trend with little success – but they finally nailed it in 1968 with this effort.

Dutch pianist Rob Franken is at the top of his game here – the top of his electric game, that is – as the album's a masterpiece in Fender Rhodes instrumentals, and right up there with the best US Rhodes work of the time! The album's a dream come true if you're a fan of jazzy electric keys – as Rob brings all his earlier jazz chops into play, while also keeping things nice and lean – so that you get to hear the keys spin out and do their thing – with mostly just the bass of Wim Essed and drums of Hank Zomer providing loose accompaniment! A few tracks appear to have some Arp as well, and most of the album was recorded in 1975 – a particularly wonderful year for keyboard jazz. Titles include "Frisky Frog Funk", "Esopet", "One Finger Snap", "Child Song", "Title Wave", "Spain", "Blame It On The Sun", and "Six Seven Eight". LP, Vinyl record album

The set's worth it alone for the amazing side-length "Supper's Ready" – a track so trippy, it's completely different than the Phil Collins-led era of Genesis – and the record features so many other great moments – like the commentary on urban housing that is "Get Em Out By Friday", the soaring keyboard-driven "Watcher Of The Skies", and the majestic "Can Utility & The Coastliners".

A trio set, but one with a very unique vibe – as the sounds here resonate strongly from the interplay between the alto sax of Manuel Caliumi, the guitar of Michele Bonifati, and the bass of Andrea Grossi – musicians whose sense of space and timing really shows a strong understanding of each others' strengths! As you'd guess from the name, Grossi is the leader, and most of the tracks are his own compositions – works that have a sensitive sort of structure, but which allows each of the individual players to spin out light lines that are surprisingly tuneful at most moments, even though they're working with a real sense of freedom. Titles include "Iwato", "Ru-Bok", "Snail Fail", "Van Gundy's Retreat", and "Mendicus". LP, Vinyl record album

A searing live performance from this brilliant Japanese trumpeter – working here at the height of his stretched-out, open-ended powers – but with a style that's a bit more inside than some of his work from the start of the 70s! Hino really shows himself to be a great leader here – working with a group that includes Hideo Miyata on tenor, Kiyoshi Sugimoto on guitar, and Fumio Itabashi on some especially great Fender Rhodes and piano – a wonderful player who really gives the album a solid grounding, which then allows the horn players to really soar! Hino's really finding his voice here – growing into one of the best trumpet talents of his generation – and this first volume features two long tracks – "Mocco" and "In The Darkness", both of which spin out for over 15 minutes!

Basis (Japan), 2006. Used ... $19.99
A killer combo from Japan – a club jazz unit that mixes warm, round bass with hard-hitting piano – all held together nicely with two drummers on the bottom, and some very crisp production! The sound is totally great – a stripped-down take on the mix of modal and soul jazz styles that have been coming from some of the Japanese and European club jazz groups of late – and without any horns to get in the way, there's an added focus on the acoustic bass and heavy drums, which makes for a nicely funky sound overall! These guys are totally great – way better than the "jam unit" name might make you think – steeped in classic jazz roots, but coming across with a very fresh, very contemporary groove. Titles include "Car Chase", "Ibuki", "Charlie", "Alert", "Gekko", "Spin A Top", "2 X 2", and "5AM". CD

Maurice Jarre's great soundtrack for this legendary film by Luchino Visconti – music as driving and dramatic as the story itself! There's a bit less sentimentality here than some of Jarre's other work of the 60s – and a bit less of an epic sensibility too – as many of the tunes have a stark, personal feel – very up-close, even when the orchestrations are somewhat large, and focused on some key themes that spin out with simple, almost stepping sorts of rhythms. Some moments are quite brooding and tense – "Obsession", "Return Of Herbert", "Incest", "Sofie's Torment", "Martin's Theme", "Death Of Joachim", and "Lullaby For Lisa". LP, Vinyl record album

Magical solo work from pianist Keith Jarrett – a set that's comprised almost entirely of standards, similar to some of the better-known trio recordings in this format by the artist – and which has Jarrett playing in this really evocative way that definitely lives up to the title! The solo performances aren't nearly as open or longform as his other recordings without any other players – melodies are intact throughout – but Keith does really have a way of opening up the songs, and almost making them sound like these very fragile, very personal poems that spin from his fingers on the keys of the piano. Titles include "Don't Ever Leave Me", "I Loves You Porgy", "Blame It On My Youth", "Meditation", "Something To Remember You By", and "I'm Through With Love". CD

2 of Boogaloo Joe's best and rarest albums on one CD – guitar jazz funk at its best! First up is Boogaloo Joe – a killer session of funky guitar jazz, and the record that gave Ivan "Boogaloo" Joe Jones his nickname! The set's a full-on wailer that really blows away Joe's first two on Prestige – breaking out ouf the box with a killer lineup that includes Rusty Bryant on tenor, Bernard Purdie on drums, and Sonny Phillips on organ – all working with Joe's incredibly tight guitar lines to craft some wicked tunes that take soul jazz firmly into the sound of the 70s! Titles include "Boogaloo Joe", "People Are Talking", "Dream On Little Dreamer", and "Atlantic City Soul". Right On Brother is next – and is Ivan's first truly sublime album – a set that showed the world that he was easily one of the greatest jazz guitarists of his generation – able to spin out single-note jams with a speed and dexterity that few others could match! The groove here is totally great and very righteous – heavy drums from Bernard Purdie, wailing organ from Charles Earland, and saxophone from Rusty Bryant – all cooking together in the best early 70s Prestige jazz funk mode!

Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsHoliday Soul Party ... CD
Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A wonderful Holiday set from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – easily one of the coolest albums you'll ever hope to spin in December! The group really recreate the vibe of a classic Christmas soul album – like records from James Brown or Stevie Wonder – and do an excellent job of moving between funky numbers, deeper soul, and some righteous message cuts that remind us that the Holidays aren't always happy for everyone on the planet. And these guys also don't just hang out at Christmas – and instead touch on other December holidays too – in a sweet mix of cuts that features Sharon in the lead on many numbers, plus some great instrumentals from the Dap-Kings too. Titles include "8 Days", "Ain't No Christmas In The Projects", "Big Bulbs", "Funky Little Drummer Boy", "World Of Love", "Got Rest Ye Merry Gents", "Silent Night", "Just Another Christmas Song", and "Please Come Home For Christmas".

KrystolPassion From A Woman (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1986. Used ... $5.99
Poppy passion from Krystol – a sweet 80s trio with a definite way with a hook! The set's got a well-balanced mainstream sound – one that helps the vocals find a fullness right away, either on the leads or harmonies – both woven together over the top of the tight, beat-heavy grooves! At points, there's almost a retro vibe – as if an older girl trio mode's being revived for a new 80s scene – but with a definite contemporary spin. There's a decidedly commercial appeal to the sound – but Krystol were also never too overplayed back in the day, which makes the album a nice discovery – and a great surprise when you start digging through all the potential singles on the set. Tracks include "Love Attack", "Passion From A Woman", "He's So Jive", "Baby Make Up Your Mind", "Scared Single", and "Precious Precious". CD features bonus tracks too – "Passion From A Woman (ext)", "Passion From A Woman (acapella)", "Passion From A Woman (radio)", "Passion From A Woman (dub)", "Passion From A Woman (7" version)", and "Precious Precious (7" version)".

Candace LoveNever In A Million Years – Rare Soul Recordings ... CD
Aquarius/Essential, Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Rare female soul from Candace Love – a singer who only recorded a handful of singles in her career, which are all collected here to make the first-ever full album of her work! Candace sung on the Chicago scene of the late 60s – and these tunes definitely have all the best elements the Windy City sound had to offer at the time – particularly that nicely-stepping midtempo groove you'd know from labels like Brunswick or Okeh, given a slight indie spin, as these tracks were all done for the smaller Aquarius label. Production and songwriting is by Fred Bridges, Ric Williams, and Bobby Eaton – and titles include "Peace Lovin Man", "Something's Gonna Happen", "Love Transplant", "Wonderful Night", "Uh Uh Boy That's A No No", "That's How It Is", "Never In A Million Years", and "Heaven & Hell" – plus a few takes on "I Want To Get Back".

Alto saxophonist Nick Mazzarella has really been setting the Chicago scene on fire of late – and that legacy certainly stands strong within the first few minutes of this recently-recorded live set – a searing trio date that has Mazzarella working at the height of his powers! Nick can spin out flurries of notes one minute, then hit spacious, thoughtful passages the next – energy that's really balanced out by the amazing work of Frank Rosaly on drums, and the strong placement of Anton Hatwich's sounds on the bass – served up at a level that's bold enough to match the fast-thinking creativity of both Rosaly and Nick. Titles include "The Puzzle", "Counterbalance", "Headway"," Innermost", "About Looking", and "Phonetic". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLeanIt's Time! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 34.99
It certainly was time – time for Jackie McLean to break out of his older bop mode, and hit a whole new level of playing with a tight group of "new thing" compatriots like Herbie Hancock on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Charles Tolliver on trumpet! The record isn't as totally "out there" as some of his other ones from this period, but it's a seminal release in Jackie's modernist period – and it's one of the hardest to find from the era. Filled with warmly wonderful original compositions like "Revillot", "Snuff", "Truth", and "Das Dat" – the record is unpacked and remodeled nicely by the trio of young players, aided by Jackie's moody alto, and given a great spin by Roy Haynes on drums. Striking cover, too – with a huge field of exclamation points! LP, Vinyl record album

Franco MicalizziAdolescenza Perversa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
The world premiere of this sweet 70s soundtrack from Franco Micalizzi – a great batch of erotic-tinged tunes originally penned for an Italian film about teenage lust! The music has a warmly gentle quality that's similar to some of Ennio Morricone's work in this mode – tunes that alternate between soft strings, stepping instrumentation, and even bits of vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso, sounding a bit sweeter here than on some of her spookier soundtracks! The tunes float very nicely in the breeze – sometimes hanging bit a single piano note or two – sometimes getting a bit more drive from rhythms that verge on funky, but hang back just a bit. And as with any of the great Morricone scores from the time, there's a few key variations on the themes that spin out beautifully as the set rolls on – creating a great sense of sonic interplay!

Kenji Mori may be the firebird on tenor and flute for the date – but the album also features some mighty bold lines on guitar from the young Kazumi Watanabe! Kazumi's got a dynamic sense of energy that really shapes the record from the start – these long, twangy electric passages that find a way to be fierce one minute, gentle the next – almost phrased at points as if he was holding a reed instrument instead of a stringed one! Mori's lines on flute are an especially great counterpart to the guitar – shapes in sound that really have an organic quality as they spin out. The group also features Nobuyoshi Ino on bass and Steve Jackson on drums – and titles include the long tunes "Firebird (parts 1 & 2)", "K&J", and "A Time For Us". CD

A later score from Ennio Morricone – but an incredibly beautiful one too – penned for a mid 80s mafia film set in Sicily, but featuring some of his sweetest, most sensitive work of the time! There's a very bittersweet feel to most of the music here – a quality that's almost romantic at times, but touched with really blue notes too – as the tunes spin out in slow, thoughtful progressions that echo the darker choices and themes of the film. There's a few more upbeat tracks, and a few darker, atonal numbers – but overall most of the score is steeped in melancholy – with gentle strings and woodwinds that have plenty of trademark Morricone touches! Titles include "Il Pentito", "Messaggio", "Retata", "Momento Decisivo", "Sicilia", "Durante L'Omelia", "Confusi Ricordi", "Sicilia Dei Ricordi Lontani", and "Evento Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

The album features a compelling mix of covers – songs originally recorded by Jess Conrad, Scott Walker, OMD, Buffalo Springfield, Jesus & Mary Chain, Weezer, and even Madonna – but all given a very personal spin by Morriss! Mark's got this way of weaving together different 60s influences – a bit of blue-eyed pop, touches of mod or psych instrumentation, even some slightly folksy currents – all to suit the modes of the individual songs – with a mode that maybe even gets past the idea of any sort of single style for the record. Titles include "Duchess", "Self Control", "Angel", "Almost Gold", "Don't Let Go", "Love Comes Quickly", "Rock & Roll Woman", "Souvenir", "This Pullover", and "Lucretia (My Reflection)". CD

Nanton's got this full, rich tone at this point in his career – a well-punctuated approach to piano that often draws strongly from the efforts of his left hand – but in a subtle way that still lets the right really take off in some warm flurries of notes! Nanton's got a surprisingly groovy sound throughout – and titles include "Sunday", "A Hundred Million Miracles", "Chop Suey", "I Am Going To Like It Here", and "Love Look Away". CD

Neon PhilharmonicBrilliant Colors – The Complete Warner Bros Recordings (Moth Confesses/Neon Philharmonic/singles) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 18.98
A pair of amazing albums – and a huge amount of bonus material too – all from one of the coolest groups on Warner Brothers at the end of the 60s! First up is the record The Moth Confesses – one of our favorite albums ever from the genius moment of late 60s Warner Brothers – a set we'd rank right up there next to our favorites by Van Dyke Parks and Harper's Bizarre! The set's billed as a "phonograph opera", written by Tupper Saussy – and it's served up with these fantastic arrangements that are ambitious, but nicely handled, too – with lots of groovy currents that keep the whole thing far from soppier territory of cats like Rod McKuen, and always done with that great sense of wit that makes this Warner era so great! There's definitely a few tuneful tracks that could spin as Sunshine Pop hits – but the whole thing's really better taken as a whole, as the way everything comes together with a sense of mood and tone is completely sublime – really a lost aesthetic, and one that deserves new discovery all these many years later. Titles include "Morning Girl", "Brilliant Colors", "Little Sparrow", "The Last Time I Saw Jacqueline", "Cowboy", and "The New Life Out There". Next Is Neon Philharmonic – the second sublime album from Neon Philharmonic – and one that seems to go even deeper than the first in its blend of ambitious musical themes and mature lyrical ideas! The presentation here is even more symphonic than on the first record – but at a level that's never soppy or sleepy – as there's a gentle groove on most tracks, loping around in these really lovely modes that make the tunes sparkle and glisten with the best sort of late 60s Warner Brothers wit! There's this wonderful mix of longing, nostalgia, and a kind of new vision for post-60s adulthood to the record – very hard to describe, but completely wonderful – at once completely heartfelt, but also with a great sense of distance on itself. Titles include "Long John The Pirate", "Do You Remember Dresden", "You Lied", "Forever Hold Your Peace", "Harry", and the wonderful "F Scott Fitzgerald & William Shakespeare". The 22 bonus tracks are especially amazing – rare singles, b-sides, and even some radio spots too – a huge amount of added genius from this incredible group. Bonus titles include "Letters Crossing", "Jody", "Better Times", "A Little Love", "Flowers For Your Pillow", "Snow", "Clouds", "To Be Continued", and "Keep The Faith In Me". CD

Augustus PabloEl Rockers ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Essential! One wonders why when the original King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown album is so heavy, that you'd want another dub version, but one spin of this special reissue package and you'll be convinced. Altogether different dubs and versions of many of the same rhythm cuts as that watershed dub LP only prove that the whole concept of "versioning", and cutting multiple dubs of the same rhythms (usually to service selectors and sound systems who needed unique tracks) was pure genius on the part of Jamaican producers. Add that to the sheer weight of the rhythms used here, and you've got a formula for a potent set! Once again, the producers at Pressure Sounds have dug up some beautiful gems, finding unique versions of H. Swaby's melodica dancing over thundering Rockers' rhythms and taking a dip now and again in a bucket of reverb & echoplex. Insightful liner notes and a beautiful sleeve complete this package of 17 massive instrumental tracks, including "Black Gunn", "New Style", "El Rockers", "Skanking Easy", "Tribalist" and "Cassava Piece".

PerceptionPerception ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
The amazing first album from Perception – a French avant-jazz group that you might recognize from other performances from some of its members – a quartet lineup that includes Siefried Kessler on acoustic and electric piano, Didier Levallet on bass, Jean My Truong on drums, and Jeff Seffer on soprano, tenor, and bass clarinet! The style here is a bold step forward from the French free modes of the BYG/Actual recordings in 1969 – still very open, expressive, and improvised – but maybe given a bit more structure at times through the chunky use of the bass and drums, which is then echoed by Kessler on the keys, especially when he's electric – although at other moments the pianist can spin out with strong lines that rival the freedoms of Cecil Taylor! Seffer is amazing too – a player that we wish we knew more of, as his work on the record is tremendous, especially on tenor – really giving full depth to tunes that include "Debora", "Enitram", "Narcisse", "Chirato", and "Phenobarbital".

Westbound (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of overlooked albums from saxophonist Houston Person – both recorded for Detroit's Westbound label, and presented back to back on a single CD! First up is Houston Person 75 – sweet sweet grooves from the legendary Houston Person – a set that blends his soulful tenor with some fuller backdrops than Houston used at Prestige Records – in a vibe that's somewhere between that earlier work and the style of CTI/Kudu Records! The best cuts almost have a funky soundtrack vibe – with arrangements by Ed Nuccilli and Jimmy Roach that spin out with full, rich charts – as Person's tenor carves out some meaningful solos – a bit like some of the Stanley Turrentine work of the period. The album features a number of original tunes, and sports a strongly soulful vibe throughout – on titles that include "What It Is", "Shotgun", "500 Gin Rummy", "All In Love Is Fair", "Funky Sunday Afternoon", and "A Touch Of Bad Stuff". Get Outa My Way is filled with very groovy grooves from tenorist Houston Person – a set that has him picking up a bit of a dancefloor vibe at times, as chorus vocals are mixed in to support his own strong solos in the lead! The set's got a nice warm glow overall – arrangements from Jimmy Roach that are clubby at times, but never in a too-disco style – and maybe more in the mode of some of the Kudu Records material from the period. Houston's horn is great, as always – and hits some nice moments on tracks that include "Disco Sax", "Spread It", "Forever In Love", "For The Love Of You", "Ain't Nothin But A Funky Song", and "Soul Samba".

An evocative title, and one that really sets the stage for the great sound of the record – an Oscar Peterson album that's a bit more open and flowing than usual – with some great long tracks, and a mighty soulful sound throughout! The title track is a real gem – as Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen begins the number with a long bass bit that's wonderful – which then ignites Peterson's piano into these long-rolling lines that really fit the spirit of the number! Other tunes spin out with a similar magic – still familiar Peterson modes, but kind of a deeper sense of lyricism too.

A pretty amazing album from vocalist Caroline Peyton – a eclectic set from '77 that manages to cohesively blend pop, country, soul, folk and even a touch of disco-styled funk – but it all holds together masterfully thanks to credible craftsmanship and especially to Caroline's lovely vocals! Caroline has an incredible voice – and she's given plenty of room on these tracks to really fill the room with it. Some of tunes wouldn't be out of place at all in the Laurel Canyon scene, but she also handles a more diverse palette of styles. One track, "Party Line" takes a left turn towards club soul, and despite being a bit of an anomaly, it somehow feels right in place with the rest of it. there's an honest, midwestern aura here that shines through wonderfully. Caroline and songwriter/producer Mark Bingham made impeccable team on the couple of underappreciated records they made together in the 70s, and Intuition is a true gem! Original album tracks include "Still With You", "Together", "Donkey Blues", "Call Of The Wild", "Just As We", "You Too", "Brister", All This Waiting" and "Light Years". Numero/Askerisk goes the extra mile with this well done revisit – with nice liner notes by Edd Hurt, photos, and 7 bonus tracks, including demos, outakes and more – including "Shake Down", "Another Today", "Try To Be True", "Spin" and more.

As before, Rhinoceros are a wonderfully fine-tuned ensemble – working here with the sharpness of the best of the Bay Area or Detroit groups of the generation – which helps them move through familiar styles into very different territory that's all their own – yet supported by the kind of well-crafted guitar work, heavy rhythms, and thoughtful vocals that really earn them a place in the pantheon of Elektra Records during the golden years.

A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the same time that reflects a move away from heavier styles of earlier years, but never loses the edge of the group's best work. Manifesto also reflects some of the lessons learned by Bryan Ferry on his solo records – a bit leaner and cleaner presentation of the songs – but the album itself is also strongly a group production effort, and certainly feels that way in its use of Phil Manzenera's great guitars and Andy Mackay's horn arrangements. Titles include "Ain't That So", "Stronger Through The Years", "Trash", "Manifesto", "Angel Eyes", "Spin Me Round", "Cry Cry Cry", and "My Little Girl". CD

The style here is much more stretched-out and spacious – really moving into jazz more than rock, and featuring very long tracks that each spin out for a side each on the expanded 2LP format of the record. Robert Wyatt makes a final appearance with the group here on drums – and the rest of the lineup features organ and piano by Mike Ratledge, bass by Hugh Hopper, saxes by Elton Dean, and trombone by Nick Evans – all working in a style that wonderfully mixes experimental moments with much more fluid grooves! Titles include "Facelift", "Slightly All The Time", "Out Bloody Rageous", and "Moon In June". LP, Vinyl record album

Stone Dogg/Alive, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... On October 30, 2020
One of Swamp Dogg's roughest and rawest albums of the 70s – a real down-home affair that's probably one of the clearest expressions of what Jerry Williams was trying to do with his character! The album was produced by Jerry in collaboration with Miami soul maestro Steve Alaimo – and has a lean, mean deep soul feel – with backing from a small combo that features some mighty nice guitar from Little Beaver, and tracks that spin out longer than usual – with plenty of spirit! Titles include "Wife Sitter", "Choking To Death", "Midnight Hour", "Please Let Me Kiss You Goodbye", "I Couldn't Pay For What I Got Last Night", and "Mighty Mighty Dollar Bill".

✨✧ Tank & The BangasGreen Balloon ... LP
Verve, 2018. Sealed 2LP ... $24.99
Tank and the Bangas roll in with a mighty heavy groove – their own special spin on contemporary soul, which seems equally informed by elements of hip hop and underground funk! The group hail from New Orleans, but have a sound that's way more 21st Century than most of that city's musical legacy – maybe more in line with some of the hipper sounds coming from west LA of late. The group features great leadership from Tarriona "Tank" Ball on vocals – who also emerged out of the city's slam poetry scene, with a quality you can definitely hear on some of these tunes – although she's a great straight singer on others! Musical styles are nicely varied, with a vibrant sensibility that shows us that these guys are just getting started – and the set features guest work from Robert Glasper on three tracks, and Alex Isley on one more. Titles include "Nice Things", "Smoke Netflix Chill", "Dope Girl Magic", "Spaceships", "Ants", "Hot Air Balloons", "Lazy Daze", "Happy Town", and "I Don't Get High". LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil TaylorDark To Themselves ... CD
Enja/Blue Moon, 1976. Used ... $9.99
One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano! In fact, we might well say that the horns are the best attraction here – as the record features strong tenor from a young David S Ware – as well as trumpet from Raphe Malik and alto from Jimmy Lyons – who all spin out with freewheeling creativity, alongside Taylor's bold lines on piano, and the drums of Marc Edwards. As with other Taylor albums of the time, the set's built around one long performance – of a tune entitled "Streams & Chorus Of Seed" – put together in a way that have the horns layering over one another, building up sound next to Taylor's free piano improvisations – then taking off on their own! Extremely spirited work – and a great showcase for the young Ware! CD

Leon ThomasSpirits Known & Unknown (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Flying Dutchman/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 44.99
Wonderful work from Leon Thomas – easily one of his greatest albums ever, and a set that was recorded at the same time he was working with Pharoah Sanders! Thomas really rose to fame on Sanders' classic "The Creator Has A Master Plan" – and this set really takes off from that moment – letting Leon spin out some spiritual vibes of his own, and step into a few fresh new styles as well! The album's plenty righteous right from the start – partly because the lineup includes James Spaulding on alto and flute, Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and the enigmatic "Little Rock" on tenor – who is actually Pharoah Sanders – but also because Leon serves up a shorter take on "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – done in a great style! The album also features a classic vocal take on Horace Silver's "Song for My Father", with lyrics that we totally love – plus the frenetic "Malcolm's Gone" – and the tracks "One", "Echoes", "Let The Rain Fall On Me", and "Damn Nam".

Roulette, Early 60s. Sealed ... $3.99
A perfect title for a perfect album from Sarah Vaughan – one of those wonderful dates from the singer's second chapter of her career – a time when she was finding newly sophisticated ways to spin out her songs! The music here is arranged by Jimmy Jones – who makes things lush, but never too much so – this beautiful balance he brought to other records of the time, such as his work with Basie – in a way that has Vaughan very much out front in the mix, working her voice with effortless ease, announcing to the world that she's one of the all-time greats, but never has to hit anyone over the head to prove it! Harry Sweets Edison provides some great trumpet lines to underscore the jazz in the music – and titles include "Dreamy", "Hands Across The Table", "Moon Over Miami", "I'll Be Seeing You", "Star Eyes", "Trees", and "Crazy He Calls Me".

Weeks plays Fender Rhodes, piano organ, and a range of other keyboards – and different singers take the lead on each track, including some really great female vocalists with a range that's amazing – trained in gospel, but also given a strong secular soul spin here by the way that Weeks sets up the arrangements. There's a few strong groovers on the set – and even the midtempo tracks pack a hell of a punch, with a sense of joy that resonates strongly throughout the entire set.

His lyrical writing and playing are extremely refreshing, and he manages to spin out long free lines on the piano, while also still keeping a very soulful groove. This mid 60's recording for Atlantic features Wilson in a trio with Philly Joe Jones and Leroy Vinnegar, and the record is divided up into "2 sides" – one fast, and one slow. The fast side has Wilson playing a bit more boppishly than usual – on tracks like his own "Kinta" and "Good Time Joe", and Bud Powell's "Glass Enclosure". The slow side is more of our favorite, and features some very nice reditions of material like "The Good Life" and "Once Upon A Summertime". CD

Mad funky vibes from The Wooden Glass – a group led by vibist Billy Wooten – an obscure player in the history books, but one who has had a huge influence on 21st Century groove! Billy's got a hard style on the vibes that's like Bobby Hutcherson and Roy Ayers at their soulful best – working here with a tight combo that includes guitar and organ, very much in the mode of his classic work with the slightly more famous (although equally obscure) Indianapolis combo The Ninteenth Whole! The set's a live one, but it really cooks with a sweet electric feel – echoey, funky, and soulful – as tunes spin out in a staggering approach to the vibes that's unmatched by any record of its time. Billy was a huge influence on Madlib and the sound of Yesterday's New Quintet – and hearing this set, it's virtually a blueprint for that group's current work! Includes great covers of "In The Rain", "Day Dreaming", and "Love Is Here" – plus Wooten's excellent original tracks "Monkey Hips & Rice" and "Joy Ride". CD

VariousAfrobeat/Brasil ... CD
BBE (UK), 2010s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A killer collection of contemporary Afro Funk work – but all served up from quite a surprising source! The music here is all from Brazil, but also continues that nation's long tradition of sharing roots and culture with the continent across the Atlantic – a legacy that's sometimes been subtle, especially as sounds get localized – but which bursts out here with a renewed sense of pride and power! The style on many cuts is nicely different than some of the too-slavish Afro combos from up north – as these musicians aren't afraid to make their own shifts in sound, and leave their own mark on the music – so that much of the cuts feel more like a fusion between rootsier traditions from both sides of the ocean, often given a funky and jazzy spin. Titles include "Afoxe" by Camarao Orchestra, "Etiopia" by Thiago Franca, "Musico" by Lucas Santtana, "Democracia" by Otto Nasca, "Farofa De Banana" by Trabalhos Espaciais Manuais, "Wababa" by Andre Sampaiao & Os Afromandinga, "Logun" by Meta Meta, "Origem" by Andre Abujamra, and "Bass Do Tambo" by BNegao & Os Seletores De Frequencia.

A fantastic tribute to one of the greatest soul labels of the 80s – the groundbreaking Uno Melodic imprint, started by soul legend Roy Ayers as a showcase for some of his more creative projects! The vibe here follows perfectly from Roy's classic late 70s work on Polydor – and his famous album with Ramp – with a wicked blend of jazz, soul, and funk – all given a very sophisticated, righteous spin – with rhythms and instrumentation that are way different than the mainstream! That doesn't mean that these tunes aren't groovers – just that many were so far ahead of their time, they've only gotten full acclaim in recent decade – thanks to new discovery by DJs and hip hoppers, who've sampled more than a few of these cuts. The whole thing is wonderful – with a strong focus on some of the female singers that Roy was working with – and titles include "Remember To Remember" by Rick Holmes, "It's Your Love" and "I Know You Care" by Ethel Beatty, "Interlude" by Justo Almario, "Baby Don't You Know (inst)" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Just Keep My Boogie" by Jaymz Bedford, "Everybody" and "Chicago" by Roy Ayers, "Give Me Your Love" and "You Can't Turn Me Away" by Sylvia Striplin, and the cuts "Sing Me", "I Knew That Love", "Ladies Of The Eighties", and "Turned On To You" by Eighties Ladies.

Lively grooves from the islands of Sao Tome and Principe – two nations located in the gulf of Guinea – at a unique crossroads that makes for a really wonderful criss-crossing of styles and sounds! The nations are part of the older Portuguese colonial network, and share some sounds with the scene in Cameroon – but also bring in West African styles and some tropical elements from the other side of the Atlantic too – all wrapped together in the puxa style of the islands! The tunes are mostly lively, upbeat, and have strong basslines peppered with deft work on guitar – a mixture of merengue, Afro-Cuban, and highlife modes – but given a really unique spin as well, with qualities that are filled with joy and life on nearly every number. Titles include "Mado" and "Meu Di Ploco" by Conjunto Equador, "Mino Bo Be Quacueda" and "Aninha" by Africa Negra, "Corticao" and "Sun Male" by Sangazua, "Nga Ba Compensadora" by Pedro Lima, "Piquina Piquina" by Os Untues, "Tola Muandgi" by Sum Alvarinho, and "Taji Ocedo" by Conjunto Mindelo.

Sublime sounds from the 80s underground – electronic gems that paved the way for pop work of the future, but which still stay pretty darn dark overall! The cuts here start with the early European electric modes of the post-punk years, and spin out through the growing wave of cool synthy cuts that would come to be known as "imports" on this side of the Atlantic – the kind of music that went onto influence generations of house and techno producers to come! Yet here, things are still pretty darn spare, and still very basic – those great early moments when folks found a way to compress all the experiments of the previous decade into some tighter little tunes – often with a bombastic quality that made them work on the dancefloor – even though the kind of dancefloor that usually worked best was filled with lots of dark curtains and black lights! Pre-electro before it got cliched, pre-goth before that term even came into being, and tremendous stuff that still holds up wonderfully over the years – a set of tracks that includes "Unit" by Logic System, "Der Amboss (inst)" by Visage, "Body 2 Body" by Front 242, "Riot Squad" by Vice Versa, "Walking Backwards" by Mile High Club, "Over The Shoulder (12" version)" by Ministry, "Platonic" by Harumi Hosono, "Necrosis En La Poya" by Esplendor Geometrico, "Twilight Zone (Trevor Jackon edit)" by Rusty Egan, and "Dead Lines (400 Blows rmx)" by Skinny Puppy.

A damn classic entry in the Super Breaks series from BGP – one that's filled with crucial sample cuts from the old school – some really wonderful funky nuggets, brought together here as a great reminder of the tracks that first got us digging back in the day! There's less of the totally obscure numbers here than you might find on other Super Breaks volumes, but things aren't totally mainstream either – and the compilers have not only done a great job of pulling together tracks that were really important for hip hop, but have also managed to put a really fresh spin on the music altogether – reminding us once again that even in the age of digital music, nothing beats a well-done compilation!

A really tremendous batch of dark-themed tunes from the American underground of the 70s – a treasure trove of under-discovered acts who were all inspired by the deeper brooding of the Led Zep and Black Sabbath generation! Unlike later manifestations from the indie scene, the work here isn't really heavy metal – and instead has this more complex approach – ready and able to spin out their own tales and stories in the space of a full length concept album, guided by their own unique myths and mysteries – even though most of these tracks only ever saw the light of day on 7" singles, as the bands mostly never got the chance to serve up a full-length set. Leave it to Numero to do a perfect job of bringing this underground together through their vivid notes and great images for the set – and no surprise, there's some occasional funky touches on a few of the tunes – especially on the drums. This is the kind of stuff the stoners in your high school wish they were hip enough to know about – and titles include "Warlord" by Wrath, "Twelve O'Clock Satanial" by Air, "Sealed In A Grave" by Triton Warrior, "Dark Days" by Space Rock, "Sweet Child" by Gorgon Medusa, "Cry For The Newborn" by Hellstorm, "Tasmania" by Stoned Mace, and "Seance" by Wizard.

An amazing bit of music – and an incredible document of generations of creative jazz energy as well! The legendary Phil Cohran teams up here with Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a collective made up of Cohran's sons, who follow strongly in the rich legacy of his own Artistic Heritage group – yet in a very different way! Hypnotic Brass have caught the ear of many during their bright rise to fame – with a fluid, horn-heavy groove that's really amazing – echoes of Sun Ra and other Chicago creative legends – yet played almost entirely on brass instruments, which gives them an even bolder vibe. Here, working with their progenitor brings the group even more depth than before – an excellent sound that really spins things out wonderfully – percussion layered underneath the horns, solos taking jazzy flight, and an overall righteous vibe that holds things together beautifully. The album's way more than the sum of its parts – and those parts are already rich indeed – and titles include "Stateville", "Cuernavaca", "Ancestral", "Spin", "Zincali", "Apsara", and "Frankincense & Myrrh".

You know the kind of album we're talking about, the ones you come across with enigmatic cover art, no names on the back you recognize or even anything indicating where or when it's from. Then you take a spin and it's the real thing from the get go! The production is nice and raw but not ragged, and a funky vibe that groups today emulate but just can't recapture. This set's mid 70s R&B, mostly instrumental but with a few vocal numbers, all nicely done up in a very groovy, funky fashion. There's a couple of nice covers, like their Isaac Hayes-ish take on "Walk On By" and a nice rendition of "Ain't No Sunshine", but the rest of the set's mostly originals, like "Merry-Go-Round" and some nice raggedy instrumentals like "What They Doin?", "Santana" done up in parts 1 and 2 (maybe on a 45 somewhere. . .), "Cisco Fare" and the jazzy "The Touch Of You".

George Mgrdichian plays in a style that's maybe more traditional overall, but with a small group that features guitar, bass, and drums – so that the tunes spin out in this really cool way that links the older North African traditions of the instrument with some of the 60s modes that you might guess from the title! The set's a lot less pop than other records of its nature – and maybe even more so than some of George's other albums too – and although most tunes are traditional Turkish, Greek, or Armenian numbers, the set also features one nice Beatles cover too – a tight take on "Yesterday", and a version of "Take 5".

The unofficial theme of the set can pretty much be found in the phrase "Cinematic For The People!" – and that mantra hits home with mixes by a wide, wide variety of producers, DJs, programmers and innovators from Hird, to Eddy & Dus, to Domu, Doctor Rockit, Moonstar and many others – who all take a spin on tracks from The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, My Name Is Nobody, Once Upon A Time In The West and beyond! The tight electro beats and pulsing synth and keys add a sinister uptempo groove on the best cuts, but they still keep Morricone's epic mood swings well in place! It's a delicate balance, keeping Morricone's cinematic, swirling and soaring groove in check with late model club grooves – leave it to the great minds at Compost Records to pull it off! 27 tracks on two CDs: "Mucchio Selvaggio" by 2Raumwohnung, "L'Estasi Dell-Oro" by Bandini, "A Lidia" by Swell Session, "Tema di Mose" by Crazy Baldheads, "Nadine"(dub mix) by Yen Sung, "Alla Serenita" (Lazer Sight mix)" by Domu, "Sotto Controllo" by Ayro, "Ritratto d'Autore" by Moonstarr, "La Cugina" by Yukihiro Fukutomi and lots more!

✨✧ Johnny PateBucktown – Original Soundtrack ... LP
American International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky treasure – finally unleashed! Bucktown was one of the best of the mid 70s indie blacksploitation films – thanks to some great starring work from Fred Williamson and Pam Grier – but for years, the soundtrack's never been available as an individual release. Now, this tasty heavy-vinyl set makes all the film's wonderful grooves finally available – presented in a great style that includes all the shorter moodier bits, the fuller longer funky tracks, and even a bit of sound effects and dialogue! The music was penned and conducted by Johnny Pate – of Shaft In Africa and Brother On The Run fame – and the tunes are a great blend of funky soundtrack styles that include full on big band, sparer snapping instrumentals, and even a few nice tunes with great use of moog! Titles include "Chase", "Stepping", "Bar Fly", "Check In", "Freeze", "Love Theme", "Call It In", "Sneaking It In", and "Spin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaUniverse In Blue (glasses cover) ... LP
Saturn, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little record from Sun Ra and the orchestra – and a set that really lives up to its evocative cover and title! The album features Ra on "intergalactic space organ" – an instrument that may well be a conventional version of the organ, but which is handled with some haunting, very spacey solos that spin out beautifully often setting the scene while the rest of the Arkestra comes in and adds in great solos over the extended reading of the title tune. The lineup includes John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on alto and flute, Danny Thompson on baritone and flute, Pat Patrick on baritone, and Kwami Hadi on trumpet – and June Tyson sings a bit on the record as well. Titles include "Black Man", "In A Blue Mood", and "Universe In Blue" (parts 1 & 2). LP, Vinyl record album
(Original light blue El Saturn label, with IGB etch in the PO Box 7124 cover. Vinyl has a small mark towards the end of "Blackman" that plays with a faint click, in great shape otherwise. Cover has a cutout hole and light surface wear at the bottom.)

✨✧ Small FacesOgden's Nut Gone Flake ... LP
Immediate, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best Brit psychedelic rock albums of the late 60s – one that sounds incredible to this day! On Ogden's Nut Gone Flake the group really found a way to spin a heady, organ rich, drum heavy, and all around big sound into the structure of the 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 minute pop structure – with out sacrificing a bit of the bombast, or burying a genuine groove in superfluous noise cycles. Truly wonderful stuff – will listen to this more often than Sgt. Peppers in our lifetime! Tracks include "Ogden's Nut Gone Flake", "Afterglow Of Your Love", "Long Ago And World's Apart", "Rene", "Lazy Sunday", "Rollin' Over", "The Journey", "Mad John", "Happydaystoytown" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(UK light grey label stereo pressing, matrix ending in 1Y/2Y, in the circle-shaped fold out cover.)

✨✧ Barry WhiteMan Is Back! ... CD
A&M, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's got it right – because the Man is definitely back, although in a completely different way than before! Barry White works here in a setting that's nice and lean – those soul changes that came about during them more electric 80s years, but also given that start-of-90s spin that had a deeper sense of soul returning to the music – thanks to innovations by Soul II Soul, Terry Riley, and other groundbreaking talents! There's a vibe that definitely resonates with the younger R&B generation of the time – funky, but in a completely different way than 70s Barry White – and the singer's vocals fit tremendously well amidst the very catchy grooves. Tracks include "Super Lover", "Don't Let Go", "Love's Interlude/Good Night My Love", "I Wanna Do It Good To Ya", "It's Getting Harder All The Time", and "Responsible". CD

✨✧ Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Marcos ValleMarcos Valle – Jazz Is Dead 3 ... CD
Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic setting for the sublime vocals of Marcos Valle – the Brazilian singer who first rose up during the bossa years, soon expanded into mindblowing styles of his own – and has then had a few great revivals over the years! Yet this record may well give Marcos the fresh spin he really needed – while also respecting the soulful, jazzy currents of his early 70s work – set up with the kind of perfect arrangements and production that Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad have brought to this Jazz Is Dead series – but which comes out sounding completely different here, thanks to the qualities of Valle's vocals – which maybe sound more rhythmic and jazzy than we've heard in years. Incredible throughout – with titles that include "A Gente Volta Amanha", "Our Train", "Gotta Love Again", "Oi", "Isso E Que Eu Sei", "Quiera Bem", and "Nao Saia Da Praca". CD

✨✧ VariousSuper Breaks – Return To The Old School – Classic Breaks & Beats From The Birth Of Hip Hop ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A damn classic entry in the Super Breaks series from BGP – one that's filled with crucial sample cuts from the old school – some really wonderful funky nuggets, brought together here as a great reminder of the tracks that first got us digging back in the day! There's less of the totally obscure numbers here than you might find on other Super Breaks volumes, but things aren't totally mainstream either – and the compilers have not only done a great job of pulling together tracks that were really important for hip hop, but have also managed to put a really fresh spin on the music altogether – reminding us once again that even in the age of digital music, nothing beats a well-done compilation! Titles include "Shifting Gears" by Johnny Hammond, "Mary Mary" by The Monkees, "Scratchin" by Magic Disco Machine, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, "Africano" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Got To Get A Knutt" by New Birth, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "Super Sporm" by Captain Sky, "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source, "Funky President" by James Brown, "Blow Your Head" by The JBs, "Johnny The Fox" by Thin Lizzy, "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man" by Dyke & The Blazers, "The Clapping Song" by Shirley Ellis, and "Get Ya Some" by Melvin Sparks.

✨✧ BaastBazaar (with bonus download) ... LP
Initiates International/Ubiquity, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Very spiritual sounds from Baast – a group with roots in the Heru Avenger/Initiates International world at the early part of this century – re-emerging here with an even sharper sound! Heru Avenger John Basil is in the group on bass, and is credited with "visions" for the lineup – and R Scott co-leads on keyboards, which often get the chance to spin out in these really great ways. But there's also definitely some strong group energy going on – a more collaborative, spiritual feel – from instrumentation that includes woodwinds, vibes, harp, theremin, viola, wood flute, and a lot of percussion. Titles include "Pharoah's Serpent", "Her Deadly Oasis", "The Anubis Dawn", "Translations", and "Teleportation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) ... LP
Motown, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

✨✧ Jimmy CastorDimension III ... LP
RCA, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Three-dimensional magic from the great Jimmy Castor – an artist who'd already conquered the worlds of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Latin by the time of this release! Jimmy draws on all his rich background in the soul underground, and also seems to move with a new sort of sophistication, too – not in a way that's slick or commercial, but which shows Jimmy only deepening his ideas in the era of Marvin Gaye and Isaac Hayes – going for some bigger arrangements and ambitious production, while still staying true to his groovy self! There's a vibe to the record that almost reminds us of some of the creative productions that Harvey Fuqua was doing for RCA at the same time – with New Birth and The Nite-Liters – and Jimmy's maestro seems to be Gerald Thomas, who knows how to spin just the right mood for each different track. There's even a few instrumentals, which showcase Castor's great skills on tenor – ala Stanley Turrentine in a similar mode – and tracks include "How Beautiful You Are", "Helpless", "I'm Not A Child Anymore", "The Lone Ranger", "Revelation", "Whiter Shade of Pale", and the tasty "The Last Ole", which is sort of a rumbling sinister slow funk track. LP, Vinyl record album
(Quadradisc pressing in the Unipak cover, with an unglued bottom seam and some light wear.)
