VariousCherrystones Presents Critical Mass 2 – Hearts Of Champions ... CD
Touch Sensitive (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
A really great collection of work – put together by one of the all-time great crate diggers – the mighty Cherrystones, a man who's introduced us to more great music over the years than we might care to admit! The package focuses on unusual cuts from the early 80s scene – work that's maybe from the more experimental side of the post-punk years, but which also almost often has some sort of a groove – although one that goes way past some of the electro pop of the time! Rhythms are both acoustic and electronic – and some of these numbers feature great use of industrial-style percussion – non-drum instruments played in drum-like ways – and mixed with keyboards, guitars, and some occasional sinister-sounding vocals! Titles include "Some Times" by Flue, "Bowl Of Cherries" by The Mud Hutters, "Bled Dry" by A Primary Industry, "Night Architecture" by November Group, "Lady Run" by Concise, "Clip Eroclap" by Vitor Hublot, "Slow Love" by Die Form, "Hog Rhythm" by Paul Lemos, "Passage" by Logo Lotus, "Double Gates" by New Asia, "My Blues Is You (slow dub)" by Neon, and "Hey" by Konec.

Franco BixioFilm Music Of Franco Bixio (Deserto Di Fuoco/Instantanea Per Un Delitto/Diario Segreto/Il Tuo Piacere E Il Mio) ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Four rare soundtracks from Italian composer Franco Bixio – appearing here on CD for the first time ever! First up is Deserto Di Fuoco – a score that begins with a dreamy wordless vocal theme, but then quickly moves into tenser moments – a kind of low-end, brooding approach to the music which is occasionally cut with some sweeter strings, yet still in a way that preserves the moody vibe of the other cuts! There's one "momento sexy" in the mix, but most of the tunes stay in this formation – kind of a mix of drama with slight currents of Italian warmth. Instantanea Per Un Delitto is a standout score right from the start – especially since the whole thing begins with a tune titled "I Want To Die" – a vocal number that's followed by a fair bit of other vocal tunes too – rockish numbers that almost feel like they were lifted from some Mike Curb/AIP soundtrack in the US – with titles that include "Back To My Baby", "My Sleeping Lady", "Pro9mise", "A Trip Around The World", and "Woman Pig". The soundtrack Diario Segreto Un Carcere Femminile follows – a mix of shorter tunes and warmer themes – sometimes in a lightly erotic mode, but also balanced with a bit of action too – and nice use of spare guitar and piano to evoke some nicely moody moments. There's a few tunes with fuller woodwinds and strings – a nice touch, and much more sensitive than usual for Bixio! Last up is the score for Il Tuo Piacere E'Il Mio – music that's filled with all sorts of weird touches – from spare recorder or harpsichord lines, to some offbeat churchy vocals – used on short tunes that end up with a pretty spooky vibe overall! The 2CD set features 63 tracks in all – done in the great quality we've really come to appreciate from the Quartet label. CD

Steve KuhnTo & From The Heart ... CD
Sunnyside, 2018. Used ... $9.99
It's always a delight to hear the music of pianist Steve Kuhn, but it's especially wonderful when he's working in the right sort of trio – which is definitely the case on this fantastic set with Steve Swallow on bass and Joey Baron on drums! The tracks are long, open, and very beautiful – really unlocking the most lyrical side of Kuhn's talent, which is then followed strongly by the sensitive work of Swallow on the bass – which often gets ample time for a solo as well, thanks to the extended nature of the tunes. Barron can always have just the right sort of touch to keep things swinging, but respectfully so – and titles include "Never Let Me Go", "Trance/Oceans In The Sky", "Into The New World", "Thinking Out Loud", and "Pure Imagination".

Mallu MagalhaesPitanga ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $11.99
One of the loveliest singers we've heard from the Brazilian scene in years – working here in a set of gentle tunes with a hell of a lot of charm! Mallu Magalhaes has this raspy little quality in her voice – almost a Brazilian version of Charlotte Gainsbourg, but with a slightly warmer feel overall – one that's perfect for the album's mellow grooving numbers, served up in a blend of playful styles that moves from sonically-sensitive contemporary modes, back to a few with a slight bossa undercurrent. Marcelo Camelo produced the record, and his touch definitely helps guide the whole thing nicely – and titles include "Por Que Voce Faz Assim Comigo", "Sambinha Bom", "Cena", "Velha E Louca", "In The Morning", and "Highly Sensitive".

Mel Torme & George ShearingVintage Year ... LP
Concord, 1987. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A key pairing of vocalist Mel Torme and pianist George Shearing – two aging jazz artists who really helped re-ignite each others' careers in the 80s! The format here takes Torme back to the best years of his jazz roots – and features spare backing from Shearing's trio, at a level that's intimate, but never too sleepy or prone with cliche. Shearing's touch on the keys is wonderfully sensitive – never just standard backing to a singer – and in a way, he brings out a new sense of depth in Torme's vocals, one that never showed itself so strongly, or so personally in the past. And best of all, at the time of this recording, the duo haven't yet lapsed into the cliches that would later mar their pairing – and instead really work together beautifully in a fresh sense of discovery and joy in each others' company. Titles include "The Midnight Sun", "Someday I'll Find You", "Whisper Not/Love Me Or Leave Me", "Since I Fell For You", "Out Of This World", and "Little Man You've Got The Blues".

✨✧ Roland HannaRoland Hanna Plays The Music Of Alec Wilder ... CD
Gitanes (France), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just a set of tracks in the standard "songbook" mode – as Roland Hanna's touch on the keys really transforms the album's set of compositions by Alec Wilder! Hanna's playing solo here, and hitting some wonderfully fluid moments – pushing familiar tunes way past their usual limits, and taking things to some great new territory we hardly would have expected. There's a warmth to the record we really love, but a strong sense of energy too – an inherently rhythmic approach to the piano that's mixed in with Roland's sensitive notes and tones – sounding great on tracks that include "Ellen", "Mimosa & Me", "You're Free", "Moon & Sand", "The Star Wish", "While We're Young", and "I'll Be Around". And as an added bonus, Helen Merrill sings on a version of "Sounds Around The House". CD

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneSmall Talk ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Sly's still doing pretty nice for himself in 1974 – with a sound that's perhaps a bit warmer than on the early records, but still nice and soulful – and peppered with a good dose of funk! The groove is really great on the set – bubbling with a more "deep down" feel than the skittish funk of the first few records, and breaking out on some great soul numbers that show Sly to be an even better singer than before – touchingly sensitive at times, in a really beautiful way! Titles include "Loose Booty", which has a wonderful popping bass/hollow drum sound, and a tasty break in the middle – plus the cuts "This Is Love", "Wishful Thinkin", "Time For Livin", "Can't Strain My Brain", and "Say You Will".

✨✧ Paul BleyTouching (with bonus track) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Freedom/Muzak (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Prime modern work from the great Paul Bley – a pianist who was really expanding his sound at this time – to a level that would soon make him a legend around the globe! The European date is a great chance to hear Bley really opening things up – playing freely, with an amazing command of the keyboard – faster flurries of notes at times than you might hear on his 70s material, but with an equally sensitive ear for space and sound – all balanced by perfect work from Kent Carter on bass and Barry Altschul on drums! There's an instantly haunting quality to the music – which is all unique original material from Bley's scene – titles that include his own compositions Bley's "Pablo" and "Mazatlan", plus Annette Peacock's "Both" and "Cartoon", and Carla Bley's "Start". CD also features the bonus track "Closer" – another Carla Bley composition. CD

✨✧ Rita Reys5 Original Albums (Meets Oliver Nelson/Rita A Go Go/Today/Relax With Rita & Pim/Sings Antonio Carlos Jobim) (5CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful tribute to this European singer – the lovely Rita Reys, served up here in a package that features five of her best albums, all in little LP-styled sleeves! First up is a record on which Rita Reys meets Oliver Nelson – and a host of other great jazz talents, including Lee Konitz, Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, and Klaus Doldinger! The tracks on the set are all standards, but they're done in the tightly swinging style of Nelson's best backing work for vocalists at the time – complete with those warm tones and colors that always made his work some of our favorite in this mode. The mode is a bit different for Reys, who we normally know from more fragile settings – but it works especially well here, and almost seems to compensate for a faltering quality in her vocals at the time. Titles include "The Very Thought Of You", "Quiet Nights", "The Second Time Around", "If I Were A Bell", "Ill Wind", and "Wives & Lovers". Rita A Go Go is a wonderful live set – recorded with backings by a full orchestra led by Pim Jacobs, who bring a soulful punch to the proceedings that's really wonderful – and which helps Reys step out even more strongly than usual! Jacobs plays a bit of Hammond on the set, which is especially nice to hear next to Rita's vocals – and titles include "Call Me", "So Nice", "Sunny", "Day Tripper", "Goin Out Of My Head", and "Goodbye Sadness". Today is an incredibly groovy record from Dutch singer Rita Reys – quite possibly her grooviest ever, thanks to some very hip London touches from the Scott Walker team of Peter Knight on arrangements and Johnny Franz on production! At the end of the 60s, London was definitely one of the hippest places for a vocalist to work – a place where singers like Elis Regina, Blossom Dearie, and Ella Fitzgerald all opened up their talents tremendously. Rita does the same here – working with instrumentation that's full, flowing, and perfectly pitched to handle both the upbeat moments on the record, and the more contemplative ones – cast out over a well-chosen batch of tunes that go way beyond the standards! Titles include "The Moment Of Truth", "Soon It's Gonna Rain", "Our Language Of Love", "Sing A Rainbow", "You'd Better Love Me", "More Than You Know", and "Come Back To Me". Relax With Rita & Pim is a collection of work recorded by Dutch singer Rita Reys – all done with very jazzy backing by the Pim Jacobs Combo, a group that Rita often sang with at the time! The tunes on the set have some very groovy 60s touches – light bossa rhythms, sweet 60s approaches to rhythm, and a syncopated swing that makes the record groove a bit more than some of her other work from the time. In fact, the feel of the set's so nicely swinging, that the "relax" in the title is a bit misplaced – as out of all of Rita's records, this is the one that makes us want to get up out of the chair! Titles "Summertime", "Waltz For Debby", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Desafinado", "Bluesette", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Fly Me To The Moon". The last album is Rita Reys Sings Antonio Carlos Jobim – a set that shows that move into moodier modes that the vocalist took in later years – with a style that works beautifully here for the bossa compositions! Backings are by Rogier Van Otterloo, but the set also features a core combo with frequent collaborator, pianist Pim Jacobs – and the blend of piano, strings, and vocals has all the right lofty currents for these classic tunes by Jobim, with almost a mature Claus Ogerman vibe to the whole record. Titles include "Dindi", "How Insensitive", "This Happy Madness", "Triste, "Song Of The Sabia", and "Once Again". CD

✨✧ JamiroquaiFunk Odyssey ... CD
Sony, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jay and crew are at it again – coming up with a consistently soulful batch of tracks that shows the Jamiroquai sound has plenty of steam for the 21st Century! As with previous albums, this one's got a mix of jazzy house, Stevie Wonder soul, and touches of modern rhythms that are used tastefully and without too much pretense. However, this set's also got some interesting touches in a number of the grooves – more sensitive songwriting, intimate instrumentation, and a few rough edges that come as a real surprise after recent work. Not all the tunes hang together perfectly, but there's plenty of nice ones here – especially if you've dug any of the other Jamiroquai outings. Titles include "Little L", "Main Vein", "Twenty Zero One", "Picture Of My Life", "Love Foolosophy", "Feel So Good", and "Black Crow". CD

✨✧ Rodney FranklinIn The Center/You'll Never Know/Rodney Franklin/Endless Flight (bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Four soulful fusion classics from keyboardist Rodney Franklin – all together in a single set! First up is In The Center – wonderful keyboard work from the amazing Rodney Franklin – a player who sounds equally great on acoustic and electric piano! This album does a wonderful job of mixing them both – showing Rodney's more sensitive side on a few acoustic numbers, but then really taking off in a much more groove-based mode for the electric ones – which have a soaring, spacious style that's in that best blend of fusion and soul that was going down at Columbia in the late 70s – but with some spacier Bob James touches too! Most of the cuts were arranged by Byron Olsen, who's got an equally sensitive ear as Franklin – and although there's a bit of vocals on the record, most of the focus is on instrumental grooves – especially Rodney's work on the keys. Titles include the classics "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Spanish Flight", and "On The Path" – plus "Yours", "Life Moves On", and the extended "Spring Suite". You'll Never Know is fully-formed genius from the amazing Rodney Franklin – one of the best keyboard stars to emerge from the late 70s scene! Franklin's got a great talent for balancing influences from jazz and soul in ways that are similar to contemporaries George Duke and Bobby Lyle – and like both of those players, he still stands strong in jazz, but makes some key nods to soul music on this set – adding in a bit of vocals where needed, and moving into some R&B-drenched fusion lines that all sound pretty darn hip! As on previous records, Rodney plays both acoustic and electric keys – blending them wonderfully for a very deep sound – and the group behind him features some especially nice work on reeds, which bring sharper edges to some of the best tracks on the set. There's a wonderfully deep feel to the whole thing – way more than you'd expect for a major label release at the time – and titles include "Felix Leo", "The Watcher", "The Groove", "Journey", "You'll Never Know", "Return", and "Parkay Man". Next is the self-titled Rodney Franklin – tremendous work from Rodney Franklin – one of our favorite soulful fusion players from the end of the 70s! The album's a keyboard delight through and through – and Rodney plays both acoustic and electric piano, often on the same track – which creates this nicely expanded sound that works well with the album's tight arrangements! There's a fair bit of soul in the mix too – some rhythms that make a few numbers great groovers, courtesy of Tom Tom arrangements – and some other full moments handled by Patrick Williams. Titles include a wonderful version of "Windy City" – the cut you might know from a classic Carl Davis recording – plus "On The Path", "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Life Moves On", "Creation", and "In The Center". Endless Flight is a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and fusion – smoothed together nicely, but never in a way that's slick or commercial! Franklin's got a keen ear that lets him sit on both sides of the fence wonderfully – in a way that so many other players tried in later years, but never managed to do without losing their groove or selling out too much. Part of the strength of the album is the way that it mixes together acoustic and electric keys from track to track – deepening the spirit of the album through a good sense of pacing and mood, and also offsetting vocal tracks with some key instrumental numbers. Tom Washington produced and heavily helped in the arrangements – and titles include "Vibrations", "Benetta", "Cancion Para Mi Mama", "Dance Tonight", "Endless Flight", "Return To The Source", "Mensaje De Dios", and a surprisingly great funky take on "Hill Street Blues". Includes one bonus track – "The Groove (single version)". CD

GoblinLa Via Della Droga (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
BTF (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... About August 1, 2021
❔
Very rare material from the legendary Goblin – originally written for an Italian cop thriller in 1977! The music ranks with some of the group's best thriller work – with many funky rock passages, plenty of nice keyboards, and lots of fuzzy guitar – but there's also a unique quality that really makes the record stand out, too – maybe some more sensitive passages that have slight Latin touches in the rhythms, and a wider sense of style than just the group's usual jamming – a very hip sound that links this one more to the bigger Italian cop/crime of the period, than some of the other Goblin horror material! In fact, we might well say that this is one of our favorite Goblin records – and one of the funkiest too. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elis ReginaElis Regina in London ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British singers at the time – so the sound's a bit different than Elis' Brazilian records, too. Knight's quite sensitive to Regina's way of interpreting a tune – and he nicely follows the soaring, jazzy vibe that Roberto Menescal had given her at home. But the groove's also a bit more open and fluid too – with some slight Brit Easy touches that Really send the whole album home! Titles include a great version of "Upa Neguinho", plus "O Barquinho", "Zazueira", "Giro", "A Volta", "Corrida De Jangada", "Watch What Happens", and "Wave". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leon WareCandlelight ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2001. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A new album by Leon Ware – and a real departure from his earlier work in the 70s! The album has Leon emerging as a jazz vocalist – singing in a sweet and intimate style that's still very much in the mode of his best work, but working through a host of standards like "Invitation", "How Insensitive", "Round Midnight", "Skylark", "Stella By Starlight", and "My Ship" – as well as 3 new tracks "Equation", "Candlelight", and "Let Go". The backing on the album is quite spare – with Don Grusin on piano and Fender Rhodes, plus some occasional acoustic guitar from Oscar Castro-Neves, and slight touches of bass and percussion. Very nice – and great to see Leon keep growing as an artist! CD
