Timeless LegendSynchronized (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Escrow/Passion (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A strange name for a group that hardly stood the test of time – but a great record that's well worth discovering! Timeless Legend were a young soul group from Columbus Ohio in the mid 70s – and on this rare LP, they've got a sweet little style that's every bit as great as that of bigger acts of the time – sometimes as fragile as New Jersey male groups, other times as tight as the best from Philly! The group's really got their harmonies down well – shifting easily from sweet ballads to more upbeat numbers, working in a mellow 70s style that's made the album a lost treasure for soul collectors for years. Every cut's a winner – all original material handled with a professionalism and soulful care that makes for a very solid record overall! Titles include "Checking You Out", "Baby Don't Do This To Me", "You're The Best Thing", "Lonely Man", and "Ghost Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Timeless All StarsTimeless Heart ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Masterful work from one of the greatest all-star groups in jazz – a short lived sextet that featured some of the best players working for Timeless Records – and a group that recalls the brilliance of the early recordings of Harold Land and Bobby Hutcherson! Both Hutcherson and Land are part of the group – as are Cedar Walton, Curtis Fuller, Buster Williams, and Billy Higgins – and the amazing thing about the set is the way that such top-shelf players can come together, yet manage to work in a mode that's far greater than the sum of its equally great parts! The sound here is nothing like you'd expect from an "all star" session – as the tunes are complicated, intricate, and have an approach that's far different than the "head arrangement with battling solos" that first marked all star jazz recordings in years back. These six players come together with a wonderfully fluid groove – sliding soulfully in the realms explored by Hutcherson, Land, Walton, and Higgins on their own records from the time – and working through magical readings of original tunes that include "Hindsight", "Tayamisha", "Hand In Glove", "Fiesta Espagnol", "World Peace", and "Christina".

✨✧ Timeless All StarsIt's Timeless ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant assemblage of players – working here under the Timeless All Stars tag, because they'd all recorded for the label – but held together much more deeply through a rich tradition of west coast soul jazz! The team of Harold Land and Bobby Hutcherson are wonderfully united for the session – working with Curtis Fuller on trombone, Cedar Walton on piano, Buster Williams on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all to carve out longer tracks that sparkle with the best open feeling of the sound that Land and Hutcherson first put down together at the end of the 60s. There's a sense of warmth and good spirit to the recording – but not of the type that dampens the energies of the players – as the best tracks on the record have a searing, searching feel that's pretty darn surprising for such an all-star session! Titles include "Clockwise", "Highway One", "Arabia", "Stella By Starlight", and "My Foolish Heart". CD

Miguel Atwood FergusonMochilla Presents Timeless – Suite For Ma Dukes (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Mochilla, 2010. New Copy (reissue)... On July 17, 2021
Part of the Timeless live series – the already legendary concerts organized by Mochilla in honor of influential composers J Dilla, Mulatu and Arthur Verocai! The Dilla tribute is billed as A Suite For Ma Dukes (Dilla's moms is rightly proud of Mr Yancey and deserves to be honored for his work) features Miguel Atwood-Ferguson fronting a 60-piece orchestra – if that doesn't speak volumes for Dilla's legacy, what could? It's wonderful stuff, bringing soaring, orchestral movements to instantly identifiable inspiration from Dilla's classic productions. Guests include Shafiq Husayn, Amp Fiddler, Bilal, Dwele, Illa J, Karriem Riggins, Pos from De La Soul and Talib Kweli. Tracks include "Morning Order", "Antiquity", "Le Yachting", "Untitled/Fantastic", "Welcome 2 Detroit", "Gobstopper", "Affolements Grantiques", "Don't Nobody Care About Us", "Jealousy", "Angel" feat Dwele, "Reminisce" feat Bilal, "Stakes Is High" feat Pos & Talib Kweli, "Fall In Love" and more. (Note: This item is not for sale online until noon on Saturday, July 17.

Benny GolsonOne More Mem'ry (Timeless) ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $18.99 About June 24, 2021
A really beautiful session from Benny Golson – and proof that, throughout the years, Golson could always continue to turn out wonderful material! Benny's working here with old bandmate Curtis Fuller on trombone – and the pair are supported by a trio who include Bill Mays on piano, Bob Magnusson on bass, and Roy McCurdy on drums – all held wonderfully in command by Golson, who's working here with a tightness that recalls Jazztet years, yet which also has him and Fuller opening up in nice long solos. There's a sense of warmth here that crackles wonderfully – that raspy Golson tone that we first grew to love in the late 50s, and which has only deepened with age by this point. The set includes the wonderful original tune "One More Mem'ry", plus great versions of Golson's "Sad To Say", "Touch Me Lightly", "Five Spot After Dark", "Once Again", and "Out Of The Past". CD
This title is scheduled for release about Thursday, June 24.

✨✧ Mats Gustafsson & Jason AdasiewiczTimeless ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2018. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
Two of our favorite living improvisers – vibist Jason Adasiewicz and saxophonist Mats Gustafsson – each completely tremendous on their own, and even more amazing here together! We're not sure the musicians have ever recorded together before – and the sound of this album is way more than we might even have expected – a beautiful collaboration that brings out very sensitive sides of both artists, but at a level that's also true to greatest depths of their creative powers! Mats works these fantastic textures on alto, tenor, and baritone sax – alongside mostly vibes from Jason, who adds in a bit of balafon too – on selections that are often quite tuneful, and maybe even evoke a more soulful side of both musicians. Things are never too intense, but still push the boundaries too – and titles include "See Them Cold But See Them Last", "Time Is Less", "Valerie", "Memory Is A Voice", "A Fall They Call It", and "Dagger".

Sweet funky electric work from James Moody – and pretty darn nice too! The set was produced by Ed Bland, the force behind the funky James Moody (and Dizzy Gillespie) sessions for the Perception and GWP labels in years back – and at many levels, the feel here is similar to those great sets, but perhaps a bit more mellow overall. Moody's playing alto, tenor, and soprano saxes – in a small combo with Kenny Barron on keyboards, Roland Prince on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Emanuel Rahim on percussion. Titles include "Funky Jazz Walk", "A Funky Aura", "Keep It Greasy", "Pot Licka", and "A Statement". LP, Vinyl record album

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great later date from tenorist Teddy Edwards – captured at a time when he'd been away from the recording scene for a bit, but only seemed to deepen his talents on the saxophone in the process! The tracks here are long and very open – in that style that the Timeless label pioneered with Johnny Griffin and Dexter Gordon – and Teddy's very different voice in this mode is a really great change – full of soulful, slinky lines that are mighty nice – with support from Rein DeGraaff on piano, Henk Haverhoek on bass, and John Engels on drums! All tracks are long – and titles include "Good Gravy", "Oleo", "Georgia", and "Lady Be Good". CD

Carl Allen & Manhattan ProjectsPiccadilly Square ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $13.99
We love the group that drummer Carl Allen has on this set – a soulful 80s young lions lineup, with Roy Hargrove on trumpet, Vincent Herring on alto and soprano, Ira Coleman on bass, and Donald Brown on piano – all taking things back to the basics of soul jazz, but with a sense of imagination and power that really mark all the players as harbingers of a new generation in jazz! Freddie Hubbard guests on two tracks – and while he sounds great, he's almost not needed – as the other players come together beautifully on all the other selections – hard-swinging, and expanding a sense of hardbop in ways that hearken back to a Jazz Messengers tradition, but with energy that's all their own. Titles include "Annie's Mood", "The Biscuit Man", "Piccadilly Square", "Afterthoughts", and "New Joy". CD

Al CohnRifftide ... CD

A beautifully-blown session from tenorist Al Cohn – definitely what we'd expect, to be sure – but still a nice surprise, too – as we don't often reach for Cohn dates of this vintage! The album's got a stone, stark, no-nonsense approach – with the sort of all-solid feel that Al always had back to the 50s, but that especially confident style that he really exhibited best in some of his 70s dates – a soulful stretching out that makes his later years as winning as his early ones – but in a very different way! The tenor's boldly in the lead on all numbers – in a group that also features Rein De Graaf on piano, Koos Serierse on bass, and Eric Ineke on drums – on titles that include "The Thing", "Hot House", "Speak Low", "Blue Monk", "Rifftide", and "Secret Love".

A lightly lyrical trio, of the sort that the European scene has been serving up here and there since the 70s – clearly inspired by the spaciousness of Bill Evans, but also working with its own rhythmic conception too! Karel Boehlee handles the piano with a nice sprightly sort of touch – alongside Frans Jan Van De Hoeven on bass and Roy Dackus on drums – players who space things out with a nicely loping swing – always a bit gentle, but in a really good way – on titles that include "Norwegian Wood", "Summertime", "Song For Sad", "Mister T", "Liberian Dance", "Twilight", and "Elsa".

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $13.99
The title alone is more than enough to win us over here – as it's a great Duke Pearson composition that turns out to be a wonderful showcase for the most lyrical modes of pianist John Hicks! That tune's the leadoff, and it really sets the tone for the record – a gently soulful set that has Hicks working in a wonderful trio with Ray Drummond on bass and Idris Muhammad on drums – both players with a warmly melodic feel, especially Drummond – who seems to create this resonance with John's piano. Titles include "Is That So", "Emily", "Yesterdays", "I'll Remember April", "Sonnymoon For Two", and "April Eyes". CD

The legendary bassist Major Holley is on the cover here – but the group's an all-around really great affair – co-led by tenorist Joe Van Enkhuisen, and featuring work from Rein De Graaf on piano and Han Bennink on drums! We're not sure we've heard Joe before, and he's fantastic – the kind of sharp-toned, swinging tenorist that the Dutch scene has given us a few key times in the past – steeped in classic modes, but well tuned to modern elements too – bridged nicely by Bennink and De Graaf. A few numbers really previous sessions with Holly on the cover, but others are much more open and adventurous – and we mean that in a good way – on titles that include "The Fuzz", "Red Dressed Baby", "Blues For Alice", "Major Step", and "What Am I Here For".

An overlooked 80s cooker from pianist Klaus Ignatzek – a set that's full of imagination, right from the very first note – thanks to a string of all original material that matches the strong performances on the set! Trumpeter Claudio Roditi is a key part of the quartet – and maybe gets a showcase here that's as strong as some of his better-known albums from the decade – really finding his groove with the material that Ignatzek brings to the record, in ways that are also nicely distinct, and show just how much Claudio can add to a session. Other players include Paulo Cardoso on bass and Mario Gonzi on drums – and the record's a gem through and through, with titles that include "Summer & Spring", "Move It", "Ballad For Ulli", "Whisper Yes", "That's It", and "Blue Energy".

Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $16.99
A very hip group, and a wonderful meeting between trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and pianist Kirk Lightsey! We always like Kirk, but love him even more when he's working with a horn player – as his sound seems to catch fire, and move with even bolder notes than usual – which is definitely the case on the album's opener, a nice take on Hubbard's classic "Gibraltar" – in a spirit that continues strongly throughout! Bass is from Santi Debriano, drums are from Eddie Gladden, and Jerry Gonzalez plays percussion on one track – and Freddie's in that great 80s sound of his – a mode that's a return to the straighter hardbop of his Blue Note years, but with the phrasing learned during his 70s funk years – on titles that include "Gibraltar", "Evidence", "Brigitte", "Temptation", and "Society Red".

Jaco Pastorius & Rashied AliBlackbird ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most unique albums ever recorded by the legendary bassist Jaco Pastorious – and one of the most outside as well! The set features duets recorded with drummer Rashied Ali for French Radio in 1984 – and as with John Coltrane, Ali is something of a muse here with Pastorius – really setting him free into more improvised, outside territory – nicely unbound, although still very much in command of those talents and touches that made Jaco such an influential musician during the short time he was on the planet! Ali comes on full at times, punctuates the proceedings at others – and Jaco moves between round notes and more abstract elements – sometimes even upping the fuzz in a really great way. Titles include "Broadway Blues", "Slang", "Fannie Mae", "Purple Haze", "Continuum", and a version of "Naima". CD

Archie SheppSomething To Live For ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... $9.99
A set of standards from Archie Shepp – but one that's done in a much less traditional way than you might expect – that new standard of returning to roots, but doing them differently that Shepp first began in the 70 – and which really colored the rest of his recording career in a really strong way! Shepp plays tenor, but also vocalizes on many tracks – almost more talking than singing at times, with a raspy, almost bluesy style – but not blues at all – an element that's warmed up by the sparkling trumpet and flugelhorn of Eddie Henderson, whose role in the lead is equally as important as Archie! The rest of the group features John Hicks on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums – all players who make great contributions in more subtle ways – on tunes that include "You're Blase", "California Blues", "My Foolish Heart", "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing", and "Something To Live For".

A tribute to the great European guitarist Rene Thomas – and one that features Thomas himself fronting a sweet small combo with Fender Rhodes from Rob Franken – with a sound that's unlike any other album that Rene ever recorded! Thomas first rose to fame on the bop scene in Paris in the postwar years – but here, he's got a much more longform approach to guitar – really stretching out on these very long tracks that build beautifully with his own richly chromatic lines, and some great solo moments from Franken. The group also features Koos Serierse on bass and Louis Debij on drums – and titles include "My Wife Maria", "Jesus Think Of Me", "Star Eyes", and "Round Midnight". CD

Fantastic work from a tenorist who doesn't always get his due on our side of the Atlantic – but who was a key part of the Dutch jazz scene from his work in the Diamond Five onwards! Harry Verbeke's got a quality that's maybe a bit like Sonny Stitt – initially familiar at first glance, but able to really spark imagination right away with his phrasing and tone, even before he launches into the solo passage of a tune! Here, he's paired with the excellent Irv Rochlin on piano, plus Harry Emmery on bass and Max Bolleman on drums – a group who really get the spirit and tone right, even when Rochlin occasionally switches to electric piano. Titles include the Rochlin originals "Will O The Wisp", "Blues For Clara", and "Short Speech", plus a nice take on the Mingus classic "Peggy's Blue Skylight". CD

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1979. Used ... $14.99
The lesser-known third album by Cedar Walton's landmark Eastern Rebellion combo – one of the most important indie soul jazz groups of the late 70s, still going strong on this set! The lineup is still the same as on the second set – with Bob Berg on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and the wonderfully solid team of Billy Higgins and Sam Jones on rhythm. However, the sound here is slightly different – with a more conscious sense of disharmony at times – creating an unsettling edge that replaces the warm, fluid feel of earlier records. The change shows that Walton and the group were still growing and searching – and titles include "Incognito", "Firm Roots", "Seven Minds", and "Never Never Land". CD

A real gem from Woody Shaw's greatest period – a very hip sextet session, recorded with Hayes, Cook, Shaw, and a rhythm section that includes Ronnie Matthews on piano, Stafford James on bass, and Guilhermo Franco on percussion. Tracks are long, and stretch out in that searching, modal style that Shaw was using a lot at the time – and although the Hayes/Cook team are listed as the leaders on the set, the record clearly owes a lot to Shaw's influence and style. A wonderful record that we just don't turn up often enough! Titles include "Ichi Ban", "Book's Bossa", "Pannonica", "Brothers & Sisters", and a great take on "Moontrane". CD

The album was recorded in Paris, with a quintet that includes William Henderson on acoustic piano, Stafford James on bass, Eddie Moore on drums, and Cheikh Tidiane Fale on percussion – and the overall approach is a bit more straight ahead than on some of Sanders' other albums – but in a really great way! The tunes are long and introspective – all done with spiritual rhythmic approaches, letting Pharoah open up on tenor and soprano sax – but never in a way that's overblown or overdone. The solos are perfectly placed – with wonderful phrasing and tone, rich in the colors that we've always loved on Sanders' work, but which can sometimes get lost in the confusion of an over-ambitious session. Titles include "Moon Child", "Moon Rays", "Soon", "Moniebah", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes". CD

Timeless/Tidal Waves, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal work in the development of the career of Cedar Walton – the formation of his excellent Eastern Rebellion ensemble, a group that became a platform for soul jazz expression for the next two decades! The group on this set features George Coleman on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all working in territory that Walton and Clifford Jordan were exploring heavily at the time – long, drawn-out soul jazz tunes – frequently built upon modal rhythms, and touched with traces of post-Coltrane blowing. The key factor, though, is that the work's never too outside, never too overindulgent – just hard-swinging soul jazz, in a 70s expression of the older Blue Note ideal!

Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Solidly soaring work from tenorist George Adams – recording live here with pianist Don Pullen, one of his best musical partners during the 80s! The album's got a bit more of a bite than some of the pair's studio sessions – a bit straighter overall, but recorded with a nice degree of energy, and some long tracks that really let both players open up nicely – in a combo that also features John Scofield on guitar, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The inclusion of Scofield's guitar changes up the group's sound in a nice way – adding in some more chromatic elements that really stand out – and titles include "IJ", "Flame Games", "Song Everlasting", and "Forever Lovers".

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Well, "album of the year" might be a hard claim to live up to – but this is a heck of a great record! The album's one of Blakey's real sleepers – cut years away from his time at Blue Note, with a fluid soulful approach that steps off his work at Prestige quite nicely. The real strength of the set is the group – as even at this point, Blakey's got an insanely perfect ear for picking young talent. Every player's a star, and the group features work by Bobby Watson, James Williams, Bill Pierce, Charles Fambrough, and even a young Wynton Marsalis, who still sounds pretty nice at this point. The set list include some great tracks, too, originals by group members that include "Soulful Mister Timmons", "Little Man", "In Case You Missed It", and "Ms BC". CD

Fantastic work from piano legend Bill Evans – recorded at the Keystone club in San Francisco just a week before his too-early death – and a batch of material that shows us that Bill still had plenty to offer the world! This isn't the work of a musician on his last legs – and instead, Evans is a master of imagination, phrasing, and timing – working with his superb late trio that features Marc Johnson on bass and Joe Labarbera on drums – and further opening up tunes we've already heard him open up before – leaving us breathless all over again, at that level that makes Bill Evans live material maybe even more important to understanding his genius than his studio material! Tracks include "Emily", "Two Lonely People", "Knit For Mary F", "Polka Dots & Monbeams", "You & The Night & The Music", and "Re Person I Knew". CD

✨✧ Joe Farrell & Louis Hayes QuartetVim & Vigor ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album with a terrible cover – but a wonderful sound! Underneath this ridiculous bikini-clad cover lies some of the best work that Louis Hayes and Joe Farrell cut during the 80s – a freewheeling and open session that's steep on soul, and filled with the best energy both players could muster! The group's a quartet, with Farrell on tenor, soprano, and flute, Hayes on drums, Rob Van Den Broeck on piano, and Harry Emmery on bass. Farrell's inventiveness, as always, is incredible – restrained from some of his over-the-top work in the 70s – but in a good way, one that has him really focusing on the construction of his solos, and coming up with some wonderfully soulful notes that hold the lively rhythms of the tunes together. All tracks are long, and titles include "Miles Mode", "Vim N Vigor", "Arab Arab", and "Besame Mucho". CD

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A simple but effective session from vibist Bobby Hutcherson – one that comes across with a really subtle brilliance! The tracks are all standards – performed by Hutcherson on vibes, with a quartet that includes George Cables on acoustic piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all working with Bobby in a style that allows a lot of open space between the notes, an approach that's especially nice in the interplay between piano and vibes on the set. The style is a bit more understated than some of Hutcherson's other records of the time, but that also makes for a wonderfully gimmick-free approach that takes us right to the core of his talents. Titles include "Star Eyes", "If I Were A Bell", "Summertime", "Autumn Leaves", and "All Of You". CD

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant 80s set from Pharoah Sanders – a record that has him a much more understated setting than some of his other albums from the time – but one that's maybe even more soulful and searching overall! The great one plays blistering tenor right from the start – in a quartet with John Hicks on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums – all players who have this way of doing a lot with a little, especially in the rhythm department – where they seem to give Sanders some of his strongest sense of groove since the key albums for Theresa. Muhammad's got this tight sense of timekeeping, but with a looseness that we love – and Lundy's warm soulful bass does more than enough to give the set a sound bottom – and Hicks' free lyrical piano works nicely with Sanders' spiritual horn. Titles include a remake of "You've Got To Have Freedom", plus "Naima", "Origin", "Speak Low", "After The Morning", and "Africa". Also features the tracks "Duo" and "Heart To Heart" – not on the vinyl release! CD

The core group on the album is the Tone Jansa Quartet – led by European reedman Jansa, and working in a space that's quite similar to that of Shaw's backing groups on previous sessions. Jansa wrote all the tunes on the set, and gave them a soaring feel that we really love – just the right mix of introspection and exploration found on classic Shaw sessions like Little Red's Fantasy or Lovedance. Titles include "Midi", "Boland", "Call Mobility", "River", and "May". CD

A tribute to the great European guitarist Rene Thomas – and one that features Thomas himself fronting a sweet small combo with Fender Rhodes from Rob Franken – with a sound that's unlike any other album that Rene ever recorded! Thomas first rose to fame on the bop scene in Paris in the postwar years – but here, he's got a much more longform approach to guitar – really stretching out on these very long tracks that build beautifully with his own richly chromatic lines, and some great solo moments from Franken. The group also features Koos Serierse on bass and Louis Debij on drums – and titles include "My Wife Maria", "Jesus Think Of Me", "Star Eyes", and "Round Midnight". CD

✨✧ Cedar WaltonEastern Rebellion 1 ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A seminal work in the development of the career of Cedar Walton – the formation of his excellent Eastern Rebellion ensemble, a group that became a platform for soul jazz expression for the next two decades! The group on this set features George Coleman on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all working in territory that Walton and Clifford Jordan were exploring heavily at the time – long, drawn-out soul jazz tunes – frequently built upon modal rhythms, and touched with traces of post-Coltrane blowing. The key factor, though, is that the work's never too outside, never too overindulgent – just hard-swinging soul jazz, in a 70s expression of the older Blue Note ideal! Titles include "Bolivia", "5/4 Thing", "Mode For Joe", and "Naima". CD

Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from one of of those 70s Dutch groups who were maybe a bit too inside to get the attention of the avant scene of the time – but who made some fantastically inventive sounds that were all their own! The record bristles with imagination from the reedwork of Dick Vennik – completely on fire here, and almost the main attraction, save for the fact that the rest of the group is so well-matched that all players leap into the fray with a bold energy that would never be the case if they were just making room for a soloist! Vennik plays soprano, tenor, flute, and bass clarinet – alongside Rob Van Den Broeck on piano, Harry Emmery on bass, and Eric Ineke on drums – all with a vibe that, if we had to find something to compare it to, might match the best late 70s sessions on the German Ego label. Titles include "To Raul", "Napalis", "Marathon", "Final Call", and "West End". CD

The group working with Mariano is a trio – with Andrea Pozza on piano, Ares Tavolazzi on bass, and Fabio Grandi on drums – and the tunes a mixture of Italian-themed numbers and works from Italian soundtracks, with titles that include "Il Ferroviere", "Gelsomina", "La Ragazza Di Bubue", "Sinfonia No 5", "Sinno Me Moro", and "More".

Ed's recorded so often in a piano trio, that we especially love his albums with horn players – and this date really crackles with the kind of excitement that Thigpen can bring to the right sort of group – almost as if he's showing the world that he could have his own version of the Jazz Messengers if he wanted.

Antonio seems to open up some nicely dark currents in Adderley's music – underscored by the piano work of Rob Bargard, who can do a great job of shading things in from below – while the whole group moves with great rhythm work from the team of Walter Booker on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums.

Far Out (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
The return of a legend – and a tremendously groovy little record! Brazilian keyboardist/composer Antonio Adolfo's been making records for years – but easily his greatest albums were those cut at the end of the 60s with his Brazuka group – a cool combination of funky rhythms, electric keyboards, spacious production, and female vocals – all wrapped up with that glorious Blue Brazil sound of the EMI/Odeon label. Here, Adolfo recaptures that sound beautifully – returning to modes he hasn't touched in decades – and getting tremendous treatment from the Far Out label, who really help him hit that classic sound right. The record's an instantly timeless set that rivals all of Antonio's wonderful work from many years back – recorded with Adolfo on keyboards, live jazzy rhythms, a bit of strings, and twin harmony vocals from daughters Carol Saboya and Luisa Saboia – soaring out beautifully with a really groovy sound. The whole thing's wonderful – even better than you might expect – and titles include "Bola Da Vez", "Papo Furado", "Luizao", "Eu E Voce", "Tudo E Brasil", "Domingo Azul", "Tao Iguais", "SOS Amazonas", "Sonho Estelar", and "Dono Do Mundo".

Atlantic/Collectables, 1971/1972. Used ... $4.99
2 very groovy records by Mose Allison – both recorded during the early 70s, when he was hipping up his bag a bit! Western Man is a really amazing record – with some good funky tracks! The real key here is the fact that Mose plays electric piano and is working in a hip trio with Billy Cobham playing some funky and soulful drums! We don't know what kind of piano Mose is using, but on the tracks where he's playing the electric, it's got a jagged and raw kind of sound, almost recalling the one used on the Atlantic albums by Eugene McDaniels. Includes the great funky track "If You Only Knew", which has a real McDaniels kind of feel – plus the cuts "Western Man", "Mountains", "Ask Me Nice", "Night Club", and "Meadows". Mose In Your Ear is a live set – one that's a bit more back-to-basics than the first, but still grooving with a unique blend of New Orleans soul and Northern jazz influences, his own particular brand of music, timeless from the day it was born! The setting here is a live one, and Mose is playing with a trio that includes Clyde Flowers on bass and Eddie Charlton on drums. The album features a number of strong originals – including "Look What You Made Me Do", "Powerhouse", "I Don't Worry About A Thing", and "Don't Forget To Smile" – plus versions of "The Seventh Son" and "Fool's Paradise".

One of the spookiest albums we've ever heard from moog maestro Mort Garson – way darker and more complex than his Wozzard Of Id or moogy horoscope projects – with a feel that's much more like his legendary Black Mass album! Like that one, there's a fair current of supernatural running through the mix – an early use of the electronics to explore the darker corners of reality, served up with lots of cool 70s occult touches – in a way that's oddly more timeless than some of the later projects of this nature from the industrial generation. Garson's range of tones is wonderful – from fuzzy bassy bits, to sparkling keyboard lines, to lots of spacey sounds in between – and titles include "I Ching", "Tarot", "Deja Vu", "Seance", "Sorcerer", and "Astral Projection".

The man himself needs no introduction – thanks to his long legacy in Earth Wind & Fire, and a range of great solo records too – but there's really something different, and something special taking place here – as Bailey pushes both his vocal range and sense of songform, working through music by Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Oscar Brown Jr, and even the Talking Heads – while also turning in some great songs of his own, co-penned with some of the album's collaborators.

A brilliant new vision for the legendary Banda Black Rio – the pioneering samba, soul and funk combo that broke so much ground in the 70s and remain vital to this day – led here by William Magalhaes, in a mode that celebrates decades of the best Brazilian music, while fearlessly moving it forward! William's father Oberdan Magalhaes was a driving force behind the original Banda Black Rio, and we couldn't really imagine a more appropriate new vision for the group than his son's. William wrote or co-wrote each track and he sings, plays keys and synth, guitar, bass, drums and more.

Production is nicely understated – never too warm, or trying for any sort of commercial approach – instead in this very timeless vibe that makes the whole thing sound as fresh today as when it was cut back in the 70s. Titles include "Fim de Reinado", "Mariana Da Gente", "Salve A Preguica Meu Pai", "Evocacao No 1", "Hora De Chorar", and "Canto Por Um Novo Dia". CD

Francisco Mora CatlettMora/Mora 2 ... CD
AACE/Far Out (UK), Late 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A pair of great albums back to back – both rare albums from a percussionist who worked with Sun Ra! First up is Mora volume 1 – a legendary early set from percussionist Francisco Mora Catlett – and a really sublime blend of spiritual jazz and Latin rhythms! Mora's percussion is definitely at the core – but the set also features wonderful contributions from Vincent Bowens on tenor and soprano sax, Jerome LeDuff on berimbau, Alberto Nacif on quinto, and Detroit jazz legend Kenny Cox on piano! There's a balance here that really matches the best Strata East energy of the 70s – an open, flowing approach that's completely sublime, and very righteous too – even more so than anything Mora's done since the 70s – making this record one of his greatest achievements ever. Tersa Mora sings a bit of vocals at times – and titles include "Afra Jum", "Five AM", "Rumba Morena", "Samba De Amor", and "Cultural Warrior". Mora 2 is a set recorded in Detroit, but one that's got a globe's worth of elements in the mix – originally recorded in the mid 80s, but not released until a brief CD issue in the early part of the 21st Century! Despite that history, the album's a really timeless record that encompasses a world's worth of elements in jazz! Francisco Mora Catlett's at the height of his powers here – leading the group with a sense of righteous majesty that takes us back to some of the most ambitious heirs of the post-Coltrane generation, but with perhaps an oddly rhythmic twist as well – such as you might find in some of the 70s classics of Bobby Vince Paunetto. Echoes of Latin, Afro, and spiritual jazz come together as one – soaring to the skies on soulful waves of sound – brought together with a sense of focus and spirit that really moves us a lot. Players include Marcus Belgrave and John Douglass on trumpets, Sherman Mitchell on trombone, Vincent Bowens on tenor and flute, Alex Harding on baritone and bass clarinet, Kenny Cox on piano, and Rodney Whitaker on bass – and titles include "Samba/Conga De Amor", "Amazona Prelude/Dawn", "Old Man Joe", "Por Que Paro", and "Afra-Jum (parts 2 & 3)".

Barbes, 2012. Used ... $8.99
Contemporary chica from this hip New York combo – great sounds that echo with a really timeless feel! The instrumentation here is right on the money – bouncy percussion, sweet electric guitar, outer space keyboards, and a perfect production approach that really ties the whole thing together – and makes you feel like you've dipped into some lost collection of South American wax from the 60s! The guitar is especially nice, with some occasional surfy touches – and titles include "L'Age D'Or", "Papageno Electrico", "Number 17", "Depresion Tropical", "Muchachita Del Oriente", "El Carnicero De Chicago", and "Danza Del Millonario".

Wah Wah 45s (UK), 2011. Used ... $8.99
Jazzy funk and tightly grooving sounds from The Colman Brothers – Mat Colman & Andrew Colman! The Brothers come up with really fantastic modern spin on the late 60s style of European jazz funk figures like Peter Herbolzheimer and the genre-defying, stylistically sprawling greatness coming out on MPS and other adventurous labels at the time – but to the Colman Brothers credit, it doesn't feel so much like a throwback. Timeless, energetic and exciting stuff – and the musicianship is top notch! Andrew plays trumpet and Mat plays trombone, primarily – backed by flute, Rhodes, Hammond, drums, guitar bass, vibes and more, depending on the call of the cut. Titles include "Mr DG" (that would be Dizzy Gillespie), "Another Brother", "Momo", "The Chief", "On A Better Day", "El Nino", "Sem Amor" and more. CD

Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1986. New Copy ... $16.99
80s electronic sounds from Poland – a record that's maybe slightly warmer than some of the cold wave underground of the decade, but not by much – and which is almost all instrumental, giving the whole thing a relatively timeless appeal! As you might guess from the image of the old PC on the cover, the electronics have a basic, early sort of digital vibe – and production is nicely understated too, so that even if a tune might be catchy, it's got a bit more edge than anything commercial that was coming from the west at the time! There's lots of early Sheffield modes at play here – and titles include "Wypij To", "Smakujesz Inaczej", "Szukam Sladu", "Dotykanie", and "Zrob Wsystko Bym". CD

One of the great space rock records of the early 70s – the debut from the mighty Embryo – a lynchpin in the uncompromising jazz, prog & rock to come – and really one of the more underappreciated early Krautrock efforts! Embryo is working in a pretty amazing mode here, with hypnotic percussion, incredible drums and irresistible bass grooves that keeping in more of an spacey prog rock realm than some of the jazzier efforts later on, but it's an unpredictable, timeless and rewarding gem all the way. Includes "Opal", "You Don't Know What's Happening", "Revolution", "Glockenspiel", "Got No Time", "Call", "End Of Soul", "People From Out Of Space". CD

A&M, 1988. Used ... $6.99
The Feelies going strong in the late 80s – as timeless and influential as ever! Only Life might not be chiseled into the post punk/indie rock Pantheon as prominently as their underground iconic Crazy Rhythms, but this really is a classic we hold nearly as dear! The hypnotically layered guitars slow build to perfection, the production is neatly void of late 80s recording studio technological trends – which seems like a minor miracle, seeing how poorly so many of their peers' albums of the period have aged – and the always great Velvet Underground-inspired vocals even culminate in a nice cover of Lou Reed's "What Goes On". Greatness! Other titles include "It's Only Life", "Higher Ground", "Deep Fascination", "The Undertow","The Final Word" and "For Awhile". CD

Curtis FullerI Will Tell Her ... CD
Capri, 2010. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
Great recent work from legendary trombonist Curtis Fuller – a 2CD set that features both a live performance by Fuller's group, and a studio session too! The double-feature is a great way to hear the tightness of Curtis in these later years – every bit as creatively expressive in the studio as on any of his great records in previous decades – with a flavor that's perhaps closest to his sublime 80s material for Timeless. The live date has the same group as the studio one, which makes for a unified feel throughout – and players include Keith Oxman on tenor, Al Hood on trumpet, Chip Stephens on piano, Ken Walker on bass, and Todd Reid on drums – all musicians who really fall in wonderfully with Fuller's visionary arrangements for the tunes. Titles include "The Clan", "Time Off", "Sagittarius", "Minor's Holiday", "I Will Tell Her", "Maze", and "The Court". CD

An obscure bit of jazzy funk from the Swiss scene – the only album we've ever seen from Grandmother's Funck – on Greyboy Records! The album was recorded in Switzerland in '96, and there's timeless sound and a laidback approach of funk – with soul jazz awareness that we don't always hear in the later funk revivalists! The 10 tracks are a mix instrumentals and a few vocal cuts – loads of Rhodes and Hammond, funky drums & percussion, horns that roll from jazzy to Afro funk influences, longish passages and tighter moments! Nice stuff! Titles include "Call Me", "When She Said Goodbye Forever (I Was Brushing My Teeth)", "Julio's Bounce", "I Can Hear Your Body Talk", "Ain't No Makin Whoopee Anymore", "Blues For Mr Harris", "Hotel 99", "I Don't Forget My Horn", "Dancing In The Funkshine" and "Work Is Done".

Riverside (Japan), Early 60s. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A really unique album in the career of Johnny Griffin – and one of the few entries in the short-lived "jazz meets folk" genre of the 60s! The record features Griffin blowing through versions of older folk numbers – mostly traditional tunes, re-arranged by Johnny here with a swinging vibe that's a bit soul jazz, but also slightly more exotic and lyrical – in keeping with the timeless themes of the compositions. The rest of the group includes Barry Harris on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – a trio who seem well-suited to match the sensitive spirit of some of the tunes! And while you might have reservations about a record like this, don't – because Griffin's tone and phrasing are great, and really keep things away from the gimmicky side of the spectrum! Titles include "The Kerry Dancers", "Green Grow The Rushes", "Black is The Color of My True Love's Hair", "25 1/2 Daze", and "The Londonderry Air" – plus the Griffin original "Oh Now I See". CD

Vince Guaraldi TrioCharlie Brown Christmas (peppermint vinyl pressing) ... LP
Fantasy, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99 On October 15, 2021
An amazing record – one with a depth that goes way beyond its simple roots, and which has gone on to become one of the true Christmas classics of the 20th Century! Although a Christmas soundtrack, the album's more of a tapestry of sadness, longing, and loss – the best qualities that always emerge in true Christmas classics – underscoring the blue side of the season that's always lurking around corners from the happier moments. Vince Guaraldi penned this score back when he was a rising talent on the San Francisco scene – and in a way, it was almost his musical contribution to the cartoon that made it such a lasting favorite – even over and above the appeal of the famous animated characters. Most tunes are simple piano ones, but played with a phrasing that's beautifully timeless – and the few vocal numbers feature voices from the cartoon, singing softly with the music. Titles include the classic "Linus and Lucy" – plus "My Little Drum", "Christmas Is Coming", "Christmas Time Is Here", "Skating", and "Fur Elise". LP, Vinyl record album

Round Bale, 2021. New Copy ... $14.99 16.00
Recent work from underground hero Russell Hoke, but sounds that are every bit as timeless as his earlier records – done in a stripped-down style that has Hoke playing borrowed guitar and banjo, and recording onto an old cellphone – which makes the whole thing feel like it came out of some obscure Takoma Records session in the 60s! There's a few instrumentals on the set, but the real charm lies in Hoke's vocal performances – sometimes very folksy and ancient, sometimes more like an acoustic take on the darker indie territory of a few decades back – all with that upfront quality that's always made Russell such a striking artist. Titles include "Sea Monster", "I Have A Gift", "Coronation", "Kingdome Blue", "I'd Gladly Give It All", "The Mountain & The Stream", "Wandering Ancient Soul", and "When I Get Down" – plus versions of the Sandy Denny tunes "By The Time It Gets Dark" and "Sweet Rosemary".

EMI/Virgin (UK), 1977. Used ... $7.99
A great late 70s set from Bert Jansch – a set that's maybe a bit of a return to his roots, but which also really marks Jansch as a much stronger vocalist than he ever was in the early days! There's this confidence and maturity to the lyrics that's really great – Bert inflecting things with that voice that must have been one of the most unusual on the UK scene, even in the smaller folk rock world of his roots – and although the instrumentation is relatively lean, the tunes have a fullness and gentle sort of majesty that's very different than 60s Jansch in a similar mode. The whole thing's wonderful – maybe a bit overlooked in the year when punk was exploding – but proof that some of the more timeless artists of the generation were still turning out impeccable work. Titles include "Daybreak", "One To A Hundred", "Pretty Saro", "Doctor, Doctor", "3AM", "St Fiacre", "If You See My Love", "Poor Mouth", "Cat & Mouse", "Three Chord Trick", and "Lost Love".

Oscar JeromeBreathe Deep ... CD
Caroline, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
The striking debut of Oscar Jerome – a UK singer/songwriter who works with a fair bit of jazzy elements here – thanks in part to some Rhodes and keyboards from Joe-Armon Jones! The set's the kind of genre-stepping record that we'd expect from some of Jones' London contemporaries – music that's familiar at one level, but very different and fresh at another – as Oscar sings and plays guitar on most tracks, but in a mode that's not easy to categorize at all! The guitar often has lots of jazzy phrasing, but is never straight jazz – and the lyrics are upfront, but sometimes equally balanced with things that the guitar is saying too. Although Jerome sounds nothing like him, we might compare the uniqueness of his approach to territory explored by Vini Reilly many years ago – a space that's very much his own, on titles that include "Give Back What U Stole From Me", "Your Saint", "Coy Moon", "Gravitate", "Draggin My", "Timeless", and "Sun For Someone".

A great set from the Chicago scene – one recorded in the early 80s, but put together with a really timeless sound overall! The album's a rediscovery of tenorist Eddie Johnson – a player who'd been away from music for part of the 70s, but who returns beautifully here with a raspy tenor sound that would make labelmate Von Freeman proud. The session is nicely laidback – recorded with trumpet from Paul Serrano and piano from John Young – very relaxed and open, in the sort of mode that really lets a Chicago tenorist take off – which Johnson does, and wonderfully, on tunes that include "Blue Star", "The Choice", "Self Portrait", "Indian Summer", and "Splanky".

Valerie June's been bubbling under for almost a decade – recording work with other artists, doing a variety of projects, and finally getting her chance to shine in the spotlight with her previous debut – yet it may well be this well-crafted second album that finally puts the singer over the top! Valerie's completely her own woman here – not beholden to any sort of easy tags or cliches – including the "rootsy soul" or "folksy diva" tags that we heard batted around before – and instead, almost inventing her own genre for the record – which has a vibe that makes us guess that it's going to be the start of a huge legacy of fame to come for June. Her voice is timeless, the instrumentation is nicely understated, and the production is very easygoing – yet the whole thing comes across with a crispily compelling sound that could appeal to both hipsters and their more mainstream friends. That might sound like a dig, but it's not – just our way of illustrating the soon-to-be universal appeal of the singer! Titles include "The Front Door", "Astral Plane", "Long Lonely Road", "Just IN Time", "Slip Slide On By", "Two Hearts", and "Got Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Stunning sounds on guitar from Brij Bhushan Kabra – an artist who picked up the instrument as a child, then taught himself how to make sounds – all of which creates a very unusual vibe for the record! The style is a bit like some of the sitar raga records of the 60s – long tracks that have the guitar of Kabra mixed with tabla from Duran Maharaj – in an extended, slow-building mode that's completely hypnotic – filled with all this unusual phrasing that really gets a chance to open up in the space of each of the side-long tunes. The whole thing is wonderful – very timeless, hardly sounding like 1976 at all – and with the long cuts "Maand" and "Raga Todi". LP, Vinyl record album

Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1955. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Three rare Storyville albums from singer Teddi King – all packaged up here in a cool Japanese paper sleeve set! First up is Now In Vogue – one of a number of great small group sessions done by singer Teddi King for the Storyville label – nicely relaxed, with backing from a septet that features Billy Taylor on piano, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Gene Quill on alto! The Storyville approach really brings out the best in Teddi's vocals – as the easy-going nature of the record has King sounding a bit more grown-up and adult than before – singing lines in a slightly sultry style, yet still with some of the bird-like notes heard on other albums. Taylor's piano adds a nice grounding to the record – and titles include "Old Folks", "Why Do You Suppose", "I'm In The Market For You", "You Hit The Spot", "Something To Live For", and "Like A Ship Without A Sail". Miss Teddi King is great early work from vocalist Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work! The group here is nice and small – a quartet that features Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass – all of whom accompany Teddi with a nicely sensitive sound – often augmenting her trilling vocals with some nicely blue tones of their own. The tracks are all familiar ones, but they're done in a mellow late nite feel that really gives them a new life of their own. Titles include "I Saw Stars", "New Orleans", "Love Is A Now & Then Thing", "It's The Talk of the Town", "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan", and "It's All In The Mind". Round Midnight features vocals as dark as they are lovely – a sublime early set from singer Teddi King, served up in a style that's nicely perched between two decades of jazz! There's a moody, intimate feel here that really takes us back to an earlier era – a bit in the way that Lee Wiley often does at the same period, with a sound that's almost timeless, yet never outdated. The only backings here are piano from Beryl Booker – and in a way, the record's almost a duet outing between Teddi and Beryl, with a wonderfully intimate feel overall. Tracks include "Round Midnight", "What's New", "I Concentrate On You", "Little Girl Blue", and "It Never Entered My Mind". CD

Like the Byrds, the group is built on traditionally structured back-porch melodies.

Tracks include "Younger Girl", "Other Side Of This Life", "Sportin Life", "You Baby", "My Gal", "Do You Believe In Magic", and "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind".

A solid – and at the time, underappreciated – effort from Bishop Nehru and MF Doom – one we love even more with bit of time on its side! Doom is more or less focused on the production side on this one while the former handles the majority of the rhymes – and having arrived at a time when Doom's mic and stage presence were probably a bit more famous (or infamous, depending on when & where you might've seen him live) than his playful, moody and oddly melodic production genius, it was a reminder how great he could be – and Bishop Nehru is more than up to task of shining strong as the primary lyricist despite still being a teenager when this was made! Good stuff, and like most of Doom's productions, pretty timeless.

An album from the mid 70s, but one that's got an almost timeless sort of vibe – given that it was recorded in the ancient language of Occitan, and set to instrumentation with lots of lightly folksy touches, and a fair bit of jazz-styled phrasing too! The mix almost gives the set the feel of some of the best Saravah Records material of the decade – and the instrumentation, arrangements, and even presentation of language follow that sort of spirit too – as Miguela has a very poetic approach to her music, and the language, while not totally familiar, does echo a fair bit of the French of her homeland – but sometimes with a spooky blend of past and present, ala Wicker Man. Titles include "De Bon Matin", "Les Colonies", "Palunaia", "La Targa", "Lo Barranguet", "I A De Sers", and "Tu E Ieu". Also features two bonus tracks from a 45 – "Retorn" and "Magali".

Nashboro/Third Man, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
A gem of a gospel set from the legendary Nashboro catalog – crafted by a very hip male sextet from Detroit – one who are clearly open to letting a lot of blues and soul influences into their music! One of the key elements from those styles here is spare but strong use of guitar or organ – often at times the lead, if not only element in the mix – while the voices of the group rise in joyous formation around the direction of a single male vocalist! The set's from 1967, but has really raw, timeless production – that early quality that always made Nashboro's efforts so great, given that they were the same company that produced all those excellent Excello Records blues releases. Titles include "The Lord Will Make A Way", "Fire One Day", "The Lord Will Provide", "Spare Me Over Another Year", "Misunderstanding Of A Friend", "I'll See You Home Again", "God's A Wonderful Lawyer", and "Servant's Prayer".

A contemporary record, but one that's got an amazingly timeless feel – like the best early 70s material from Brazilian artists like Airto, Hermeto Pascoal, or Egberto Gismonti! The music of Fabiano Do Nascimento has a similar genre-breaking quality to these giants – not straight jazz, but very jazzy in parts – not traditional Brazilian roots, either – but very schooled in the strongest elements from decades of creativity on that scene – all wrapped up in this fresh, new blend that's completely mesmerizing right from the start! Most instrumentation is acoustic, and relatively simple – guitar, percussion, drums, and vocals – but the arrangements are wonderful, and fold these familiar elements together in ways that are completely unique. The legendary Airto guests on the record – but the vision here is clearly that of Fabiano Do Nascimento – as he mixes together works by Hermeto Pascoal, Baden Powell, and other Brazilian composers with some bold new ideas of his own. Titles include "Forro Brasil", "Minha Ciranda", "Etude", "Primeira Estrella", "Tupi", "Se Ela Preguntar", "Tocatta Em Ritmo De Samba", and "Nana". CD

The set's got a surprising amount of depth – a lot more so than other Six Degrees albums – and the record's got an appeal that goes way past just contemporary Brazilian music. Titles include "Sambinha", "Conto De Fadas", "Anjo Gabriel", "No Meu Pais", "Batuque", "Ela", and "Menina Dos Olhos Azuis". CD

The first we've ever heard of Loren Oden – a singer with a falsetto style that's perfect for the sweetly soulful backings of Adrian Younge – a mix of modes that's almost in the same territory as Adrian's record with The Delfonics a few years back! Yet the style here is also more contemporary – warm currents of 21st Century soul, tripping along in a gentle Linear Labs sort of way – beats on the backburner, as the keyboards often carry as much rhythm as melody – with the right sort of gently bubbling vibe to match the mellow soul energy of Oden's vocals! The whole thing's a contemporary sweet soul album to rival the greatness of gems from the 70s – with titles that include "All Roads", "Galaxies", "Addicted", "Queen", "My Heart My Love", "Somber Sonnet", and "Timeless Answers".

Loren OdenAdrian Younge Presents Loren Oden – My Heart My Love – Instrumentals ... LP
Linear Labs, 2020. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
A record that should really just be billed under the name of Adrian Younge, and maybe not Loren Oden – as the set features all of Adrian's sweet instrumental backings for Oden's vocals – a cool deep funk set that's got all the classic currents of some of Younge's other productions in recent years, but with a nice twist too. There's some surprising contemporary elements going on, too – warm currents of 21st Century soul, tripping along in a gentle Linear Labs sort of way – beats on the backburner, as the keyboards often carry as much rhythm as melody – with the right sort of gently bubbling vibe to come through strongly on titles that inlcude include "All Roads", "Galaxies", "Addicted", "Queen", "My Heart My Love", "Somber Sonnet", and "Timeless Answers".

✨✧ Orquesta AfrosinfonicaOrin – A Lingua Dos Anjos ... CD
Think (Japan), 2021. New Copy ... $24.99
A really beautiful album – one that more than lives up to the promise of the group's name, but which is even greater than you'd expect! The approach here follows in a Brazilian tradition of mixing rootsy elements with greater instrumental sophistication – maybe in a legacy that would include the best projects of Moacir Santos and the Afro-Sambas music of Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes – but with a more contemporary spirit, too, and one that manages to bring together a range of different instruments here into a sound that's completely sublime! Ubiritan Marques is the maestro here, and also handles the acoustic piano parts – which sparkle nicely amidst a larger set of percussion and woodwinds, plus a group of voices that soar up, and give the whole thing a sense of majesty amidst the groove. Things are still nice and earthy at the core – never too polished in production, and with just the right sort of crispiness that would have made Moacir Santos proud. As with some of his best, there's a quality here that's instantly distinct, and completely timeless – on titles that include "Agua", "Espiritual", "Canto De Veronica", "Nabeleli Yo", "Meu Caminhar", "Orin", "Orixa", and "Mameto Kalunga".

Lee Scratch PerryBlack Ark Vol 2 ... LP
VP, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A record that's a bit different than the usual Lee Scratch Perry album of the 70s – more of a various artists collection, put together by Pauline Morrison, with material rescued from the Black Ark studios before their implosion – all mixed by Lee Perry with his amazing mid 70s ear for sound – which makes for timeless magic on cuts that include "Ethiopia" by Carol Cole, "Give Praises" by The Silvertones, "How Deep Is Your Love" by The Inamans, "Got To Be Irie" by The Originals, "I Am I Said" by Bunny Rugs, "Jah Love Is Sweeter" by Lacksley Castell, and "Mumbling & Grumbling" by Junior Byles.

Pete Rock & CL SmoothMain Ingredient (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Elektra/Get On Down, 1994. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... On May 28, 2021 (delayed)
One of most essential hip hop albums of the 90s – arguably among the best ever! The Main Ingredient is a great title for the album, as this one finds Pete & CL working with the core essenses of their timeless hip hop sound. Pete Rock's soul and funk sample enriched sound at it's very best, and CL Smooth's rhymes in peak form as well. Absolute greatness! Titles include "In The House", "Carmel City", "I Get Physical", "Sun Won't Come Out", "I Got A Love", "Escape", "The Main Ingredient", "Worldwide", "All The Places", "Tell Me", "Take You There", "Searching", "Check It Out", "In The Flesh", "It's On You", and "Get On The Mic".

Poison IdeaPick Your King (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jackpot, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The ferocious debut of Portland punk trailblazers Poison Idea! Pick Your King is a reference to the front and back covers – Jesus on one side, Elvis on the other – and the band tears through the 13 songs so fast, it was actually originally issued as 7-inch EP! It's all the better for the brevity, too, a gnarly hardcore blast from beginning to end. Timeless noise from a band that doesn't get enough credit for being one of the more influential Pacific Northwest underground scene generators of the 80s onward. Includes "Think Twice", "It's An Action", "This Thing Called Progress", "In My Headache", "Self Abuse", "Cult Band", "Last One", "Pure Hate", "Castration", "Reggae (I Hate)", "Give It Up" and "Think Fast". LP, Vinyl record album

Professionals (Madlib & Oh No)Professionals ... LP
Madlib Invazion, 2020. New Copy ... $23.99 27.98
A masterful duo project from Madlib & Oh No – Madlib on the beats and younger brother Oh No on the mic, 2 independent hip hop heavies still riding a creative peak after a couple decades in the game! The Professionals moniker is more than earned here. Madlib has been one of the most adventurous, trend-transcending producers in hip hop for such a long time, it'd be easy to take him for granted if he wasn't so unpredictable. That he's finally found something close to mainstream success thanks to his deservedly acclaimed work with Freddie Gibbs clearly hasn't diminished his work ethic, as he's firing on all cylinders here. Oh No is a dual threat, showing off dizzying production skills when duty calls, but freed up to focus solely on the rhymes here, he's at the top of his game on that front. Titles include "My House", "The Pros", "Payday", "Give N Take", "Buggin", "Timeless Treasure", "Away Too Long", "Tired Atlas", "Dishonored Valor". LP, Vinyl record album
