✨✧ Josh LawrenceTriptych ... CD
Posi tone, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful album from trumpeter Josh Lawrence – a very strong-voiced talent who's got a way of being bright and sharp at the same time, and who can always bring lots of his own compositional strengths to bear as well! The core group is a quartet – with Lawrence blowing beautifully over piano from Zaccai Curtis, bass from Luques Curtis, and drums from Anwar Marshall – and the set also features some great alto from Caleb Curtis on two tracks, balancing out the sound of Josh in this strongly soulful spirit! Brian Charette brings some organ to the album's final track – a great remake of the Earth Wind & Fire tune "That's The Way Of The World" – and all other titles are Lawrence originals, with tunes that include "We're Happiest Together", "Composition #2", "Wind", "Earth", "Sugar Hill Stroll", and "Sunset In Santa Barbara".

Wojciech KonikiewiczMuzyka Nowej Przestrzeni ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1993. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Really cool work from Polish musician Wojciech Konikiewicz – presented here with a title that means "music of new space" – and which represents a stunning shift into ambient territories after earlier work in rock and jazz! The music is as dark as the image on the cover – often lots of brooding low tones that have a more sinister vibe than some of the ambient experiments from the other side of the iron curtain at the time – maybe slightly in the mode of some of Brian Eno's music in the Thursday Afternoon generation, but also with some traces of more serious, academic explorations as well. The work was created with three different synthesizers and a bit of reverb – all recorded live, with titles that include "Ischri", "Theo", "Nox Atra", "Aniolowie W Burzy", and "Mistyczne Swiatlo". CD features both volumes 1 and 2 of the original releases! CD

Kwintet Barowy (Jerzy Milian/Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski)Do Widzenia ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1959. New Copy ... $7.99
Early work from the Polish jazz scene of the postwar years – by a cool combo that features two key players who'd really explode in decades to come! The group features excellent work on tenor and flute from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, and vibes from Jerzy Milian – both two of our favorite players from the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s, already sounding great here in the company of pianist Benon Hardy – on a series of recordings that have lots of other modern jazz elements in the mix! The other players aren't listed, but there's clearly drums and bass at play – plus occasional other touches – and the style is maybe a bit like Swedish modern of the 50s, but with some deeper tones from Wroblewski, and a hard-hitting vibes approach that's a bit like that of the Belgian player Fats Sadi. Titles include "Bandoska In Blue", "Do Widzenia", "Maracca", "Moto Cross", "Medium Swing", "Figlarny Mosorozec", and "Milion Zlotych". CD

Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 30.00
Director Quentin Tarantino has drawn plenty of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone over the years – either using short passages of older Morricone music in his films, or evoking the substance and style of the maestro in the way he uses sounds from other sources too! So it's only fitting that this time around, the pair are finally brought together fully – as Morricone turns out one of his best soundtracks in years for Tarantino's Hateful Eight – a brooding, suspenseful tale that owes plenty to the western generation that first sprung Morricone to global fame! Yet as with most of Ennio's best work, the style here is something that goes far beyond expectation – orchestrations that take on a style completely their own – with instrumental elements that have stronger focus amidst the larger charts, and a sense of mood and color here that's completely sublime. The record is mostly music from Morricone – written for the film – and features a few passages of dialogue from the movie, plus just a few additional tracks by The White Stripes, Roy Orbison, and David Hess. Yet it's more than fair to think of this as a complete score by Morricone – very different than the usual compilation-style soundtracks we've had before from Tarantino. LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – heavy vinyl in a sweet triptych cover!)

Roxy MusicCountry Life ... CD
Virgin (UK), 1974. Used ... $6.99
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly their best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to heights to match the European greats of years past who were his inspiration – and the group's tight blend of reeds, guitar, and moody keyboards gives the whole album an off-kilter sense of instrumentation that really sets it apart from the pack. There's an artfulness here that's never overdone, and the whole thing comes together with a magic that's impossible to describe, but which is Roxy at their best. Titles include "Out Of The Blue", "The Thrill Of It All", "Three & Nine", "Triptych", "Casanova", and "Prairie Rose". CD
(HDCD remastered version. BMG club pressing.)

✨✧ Wladyslaw KomendarekArs Electronica 1989/1990 ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Four long slices of electronic genius from Wladyslaw Komendarek – a Polish talent with techniques to rival some of the best British and American electronic experimenters from the decade before – but much less known, given that his music never got much circulation in the west! The album was created in Komendarek's own studio – on a variety of Roland, Korg, and Casio instruments – and the result is very dark and deep, almost like some project from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop! The pieces appear here for the first time – all submissions to Ars Electronica in 1989 and 1990 – and titles include "Komputerowa Krew", "Gasnaca Plazma", "Magowie Galaktycznego Czasu", and "Pobudzenie Ludzi Do Zycia Mowie Alfa".

✨✧ VariousSounds Of The Times – From The KPM & Conroy Music Libraries 1970 to 1977 ... CD
KPM/Vocalion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of Brit sound library work – most of it from the legendary KPM 1000 Series, plus assorted bits from the Conroy label as well! The work here leans heavily towards funky jazz – those fuzzy, hard-driving tunes that always made KPM sides a key choice for action films and cop shows – and which have made digging through sound library records such a delight all these many decades later! The compilers did a really wonderful job with this set – creating a feel that's a bit different than the usual sound library collection – because although funky overall, the package also features some jazzy moments too – key cuts that are interspersed with the action moments to create a really fleshed-out sense of mood and feeling. Plus, the set list is huge – 25 tracks in all, running for well over 70 minutes – truly the treasure trove we promised at the start of this review, with titles that include "Soul For Sale" and "Tycoon" by Keith Mansfield, "Block Buster" and "Head In The Clouds" by Johnny Pearson, "Loco Motion" and "Soul Foot Strut" by Dave Gold, "Traffic" and "Challenger" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Short Cut" by James Clarke, "Heavy Traffic" by James Cameron, "Speculation" by David Lindup, "Vegas To LA" by Dick Doerschuk, "Tough Assignment" by Chris Gunning, "Speedway" by Nick Ingman, "String Boogie" by Brian Bennett, and "The Double Take" by Steve Gray.
