Victor Assis BrasilDesenhos ... LP
Forma/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... About October 14, 2020
Genius work from Victor Assis Brasil – one of the greatest Brazilian saxophonists ever, heard here in a sublime recording from the bossa nova era! The set's got a wicked feel right from the start – killer rhythms from the trio of Tenorio Jr on piano, Edison Lobo on bass, and Chico Batera on drums – topped with some amazingly soulful alto sax from Victor – blown with these edges that are totally great, both modern and meaningful, at a level that almost reminds us of a young Gary Bartz! The set was produced by Roberto Quartin for his legendary Forma label, so the sound is amazing – and titles include "Naquele Base", "Devaneio", "Dueto", "Amor De Nada", "Eugenie", "Desenhos", and "Minha Saudade".

Selected Sound/Be With (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A very unusual sound library album from the German scene – a set that's maybe a lot more ethnographic than the usual stock TV and commercial grooves you'd expect – done by Victor Cavini with a fairly sensitive blend of traditional Japanese instrumentation and a few key modern elements as well! Instrumentation includes koto, wood flute, and lots of percussion – mostly acoustic, and in these little short tunes that do a great job of painting a little scene in sound – served up as a total of 14 "Pictures Of Japan", originally recorded for the Selected Sound library label.

JCR/Compost (Germany), 2001. Used ... $1.99
Prepare to meet your new favorite soul singer! Victor Davies is an incredible talent – with a warm soulful voice that has slight folksy touches, in a manner that reminds us a lot of classic work by singers like Terry Callier or Jon Lucien. This debut album is incredible – an instant soul classic, filled with well-written tunes handled with light jazzy touches – the kind of record that makes you open your ears and say, "Hey, where's this guy been? He's great!" Titles include "Better Place", "Runaway Train", "One Thing", "Lady Luck", "Winnie's Song", "Brother", and "Sound Of The Samba". CD

Vampi Soul (Spain), 1970. Used ... $4.99
Massive work from this funky Nigerian cat – a set that offers up a key mix of James Brown funk and home-grown elements – all in a blend that's totally unique! The 1970 album mixes together equal parts African highlife and American soul – making for a style that's heavy one minute, lighter the next – and always changing things up in a really dynamic way! Percussion plays a big role on the funkier cuts, and guitar is on most numbers too – used with a lyrical, rhythmic style on the highlife numbers – and a much more hard-vamping approach on the funkier ones. Includes killer versions of "Mother Popcorn", "Let Yourself Go", "There Was A Time", "I Feel Alright", and "Cold Sweat" – plus the tracks "Okere Gwonko", "Everybody Needs Love", "Onuro", and "Magic Feet".

Other Dimensions In Music with Fay VictorKaiso Stories ... CD
Silkheart (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Vocalist Fay Victor joins the wonderful group Other Dimensions In Music – for a performance that really helps deepen the sound and knock the whole thing out of the park! Make no mistake, we already love the instrumental side of the group – Roy Campbell on trumpets and other instruments, Daniel Carter on saxes and flute, William Parker on bass, and Charles Downs on drums and percussion – all shifting instruments, and working together in a mode that's very strongly in a legacy that runs from the AACM through the loft jazz generation! But the presence of Victor's voice really adds a whole new layer – contributions from various texts, which are spoken and sung, but in ways that are as unconventional as the music that Campbell and Carter make on their horns. Titles include "An Open Letter", "We Is We Trini", "Saltfish Refried", "Three Friends Advised", "Kitch Goes Home", and "John Gilman Wants Tobacco". CD

Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
They certainly got the title right on this one – as Feldman moves from his usual staid jazz mode, to come up with a very groovy LP! In the course of the album, Vic gets his hands on conga, sand blocks, vibes, drums, organ, electric piano, tympani, tambourine, jawbone, novachord, and a lot more – creating some great little tunes with a heavily percussive groove to them. The set's a great mix of jazz and mod – with a sound that would make Verve weep! Titles include "Voce E Eu", "Do The Jake", "Geronimo", "Sunshine Superman", "In The Mood", "Have A Heart", and "This Door Swings Both Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

Quite possibly the funkiest album that Victor Feldman ever recorded – a sweet little cooker from early 70s Cali – recorded with some great help from Tom Scott on sax and flute! Victor plays both piano and vibes, and there's a warm funky glow to the whole set – kind of a CTI vibe, but taken a bit more stripped-down and indie too – especially on the cuts with a bit harder edge. Other players include Chuck Domanico on bass and John Guerin on drums – and titles include the killer "Your Smile", plus "Rockavibabe", "Quietly", "I Love Lucy", "Crazy Chicken", "Minor Catastrophe", and "Brazilian Fire".

Smooth modern R&B from soul singer Sandra St Victor – a self-proclaimed "mack diva", and former singer with the late 80s UK group The Family Stand. This set's an extension of Sandra's work with the Family Stand – who also helped produce the set – kind of a mix of hip hop rhythms, smooth soul, and a bit of that British soul sound, divided up into "outside" and "inside" sections, to fit the mood of the tunes. Includes the track "Dizzy", which features guest work by Roy Ayers and Donald Byrd – plus the cuts "Slippin Into Darkness", "If You Loved Yourself More", "Winter In My Heart", "In A Zone", "Holding Out", and "Molasses Rain".

Northern Spy, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fay Victor has always been an experimental sort of singer – and here, she works in a very experimental setting – a "chamber trio" that just features her voice alongside the cello of Marika Hughes and alto sax of Darius Jones! Fay's voice is wonderful – cresting with the sort of sharp edges that Abbey Lincoln would bring to her more pensive, more avant performances – set up in a way that also echoes some of the classic modes of Jeanne Lee – but with these beautifully poetic lyrics that are very much Victor's own. Titles include "Stealaway", "Last Night's Dinner", "Dream State", "Sometimes", "Talk Talk (part 2)", "Nico", and "There They Are". CD

VariousIf Music Presents You Need This – World Jazz Grooves – Compiled By Jean Claude & Victor Kiswell ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Not a set of world music-inflected jazz – although there is a bit of that – and instead, a wonderful collection of spiritual numbers from around the world – most recorded in the 70s, at a time when barriers were really breaking down in jazz music! All tracks here are nice and long, and most are groovers – but not in the typical funky jazz way – as the album is mostly earthy and organic, and mostly acoustic too – with musicians that work together wonderfully in ensemble format, and often find ways to incorporate non-traditional instruments into a jazz-based perspective! Titles include "Souffle (part 2)" by Armand Lemal, "Ismaa" by The Jazz Committee For Latin American Affairs, "Timbuktu" by Theo Loevendie Consort, "Fonetik A Velo" by Kafe, "Martinica" by Michel Sardaby, "Illustration" by Billy Bang's Survival Ensemble, "Pumu 1" by Masabumi Kikuchi, and "Itwenty Five" by Joe Malinga & The Southern African Force.

Big Horns BeeWhy Can't We Be Friends ... CD
Victor (Japan), 2004. Used ... $24.99
A smoking set of funky horns from Japan – played by a group who are clearly drawing influences from The JBs, The Memphis Horns, and a host of smaller combos from the swinging 60s! The sound here is very much in keeping with the "big horns" title – but not in any sort of hokey way at all, as the combo's got a lean and hard-grooving sound that's more than enough to take all of its influences and filter them together with a rich new sound! There's plenty of wah-wah guitar and heavy organ next to the horns – and the album features great remakes of "Why Can't We Be Friends" and "Mission Impossible" – plus the tunes "Nutville", "Vamp Intro", "Peace Of Love", and "Rum & Peace".

Terumasa HinoMay Dance ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1977. Used ... $28.99
A surprisingly open-ended set from trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a set that's a really great balance between his freer sounds of the early 70s, and some of the warmer fusion modes he hit towards the end of the decade! Hino's working here with a trio of American players – John Scofield on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – an especially tight rhythm section that really helps the record find its groove in the absence of any piano or keyboards. Some of the best tracks have a chunky feel to them – one that's almost funky, but a bit looser overall– and Hino's trumpet is well-blown, with a mix of bold notes and softer soulful elements. Tracks are all long, and titles include "Wind Blows Your Skin", "The Wild Lady", "Big Celebration", and "Free Land". CD

Barbara MasonLady Love (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Buddah/Victor (Japan), 1973. Used ... $14.99
A pivotal album for Barbara Mason – one in which she takes the little girl soul sound of earlier albums, and turns it into a sophisticated range of emotions that foreshadows later Philly work by singers like Jean Carn and Phyllis Hyman! Despite the Philly arrangements by Ronnie Baker, Norman Harris, and Vince Montana, there's actually a bit of a southern twinge to the record – an aspect that works nicely on the ballad cuts, which have kind of an Ann Sexton or Shirley Brown feel to them – sophisticated female soul at its best, and a real change overall for Barbara. Features the uptempo extended political cut "World War Three", plus "All in Love is Fair", "Bed and Board", "Caught in The Middle", "I Miss You Gordon", and "Me and Mr. Jones", her cover of the Billy Paul hit, and a nice version too!

Carmen McRaeAs Time Goes By – Live At The Dug (XRCD24 pressing) ... CD
Victor/JVC (Japan), 1973. Used ... $24.99
A very unusual session for Carmen McRae – a live recording that features only her vocals and piano, on spare readings of a number of sophisticated songs that ably demonstrate the class and care she was bringing to her work at the time! The approach is quite different from some of the smoother, more soul-based records that McRae was cutting in the 70s – a very laidback, late nite sort of date that takes us right back to Carmen's earliest years on record – but with a 60s' worth of hipness thrown into the mix. She's still got some sense of poise on the tunes, but also brings up a slightly earthy undercurrent at points too – a relaxed, mature vibe that really fits the intimacy of the record. Titles include "The Last Time For Love", "More Than You Know", "I Can't Escape From You", "I Could Have Told You", "Please Be Kind", and "Supper Time". CD

Monday Michiru & Toshiko AkioshiJazz Conversations – The Other Side Of Monday Michiru ... CD
Victor (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
The other side of Monday Michiru – or, more appropriately, the early side of the great soul singer – given that her roots in jazz go very far back, to the time when she was the child of two very famous jazz musicians! This set has Monday reunited with her mother – the legendary pianist Toshiko Akioshi – who works exclusively on piano, in this wonderfully pointed, introspective style – while Monday both sings in a jazz style, and plays flute as well – an instrument she first used on record when she was about ten years old. The reunion is a wonderful one – and while Toshiko's every bit as great as you'd expect, we find ourselves falling in love with Monday even more than before – as her handling of the mellower material is beautiful, and opens up an even more deeply expressive side of her vocals than before. The record's got a bit of added bass and drums at points – and titles include "Frog", "Long Yellow Road", "First Night", "Love & Life", "New Girl In Town", "Broken Dreams", and "Ain't Gonna Ask No More".

A 4 track EP – but one with enough sheer raw power to blow away most full length jazz albums! Soil & Pimp may have a crazy name, but they're a combo who never let us down – and on this tasty little taster, they really hit hard on every single track – weaving all-acoustic grooves on sax, trumpet, piano, bass, and drums – tunes that are complicated, yet always grooving, often in the best manner of late 60s soul jazz on Blue Note or Impulse! All tracks are great – and even the studio numbers come across with the same intensity as the live track! CD

Soil & Pimp never fail to delight our ears – and they work here in a blistering blend of piano lines, rolling acoustic bass, snapping drum parts, and these incredible horns – coming together on the choruses with more raw power than you could ever hope to get from an electric guitar, then soaring off on their own in these beautiful solos that recall the genius of Pharoah Sanders, Gary Bartz, and some of the best of the post-Coltrane generation! This EP features 6 tracks in all – a great update on the group's sound since their last album – and titles include "Follow", "Fragment", "Summer Goddess", "Ms BC", and "Sweat". CD

Sadao WatanabeAutumn Blow ... CD
Flying Disk/Victor (Japan), 1977. Used ... $29.99
A well-remembered fusion date from Japanese reedman Sadao Watanabe – and one of his first to get larger circulation with an American audience too! The set has Watanabe blowing sharp and strong on alto, soprano sax, and flute – and working alongside heavyweight American fusion giants – in a combo that includes Patrice Rushen on keyboards, Lee Ritenour on guitar, Ernie Watts on saxes, and Harvey Mason on drums! The style isn't nearly as smooth or tightly produced as in later years – and there's still a nice edge to the music throughout – some of those unusual tones that Sadao was developing in Japan in the early part of the 70s, set to creative tunes that also stretch out in both their solos and rhythms. The album was recorded live, which also probably explains the open quality of the sound – and titles include "Orange Bypass", "Just Crusin", "The Chaser", "Rapture", and "Someday In Suburbs". CD

Sadao WatanabeSadao 2019 – Live At Blue Note Tokyo ... CD
Victor (Japan), 2020. New Copy ... $23.99
We've loved saxophonist Sadao Watanabe for many years, through many different styles, and he's still sounding wonderful after all his decades in music – playing live in a laidback quartet setting, in a performance that's very heavy on his own compositions too! The backing is top-shelf, but nicely understated – Russell Ferrante on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Steve Gadd on drums – moving with a gentle swing, but really letting Sadao take the lead on alto sax – blowing soulful, well-crafted solos of the sort that you'd maybe be more likely to hear on this sort of session from a tenor. Titles include "Warm Days Ahead", "Butterfly", "Plum Island", "Tembea", "Waiting Song", and "Early Spring". CD

Sadao WatanabeSadao Watanabe – The Best (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Disk/Victor (Japan), Late 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $34.99
Late 70s classics from Japanese reedman Sadao Watanabe – a player who'd been a key part of the Tokyo scene from the late 50s onward – moving through bop, bossa nova, and even a bit of more spiritual styles – before ending up in the electric fusion years that are featured in this set! Watanabe's a mighty tight player, with a long legacy of creative expression – which means that although the setting here might be electric and soul-based, he also brings plenty to bear in his solo work too – some great soulful expressions that often get support from American fusion players like Lee Ritenour, Chuck Rainey, Steve Gadd, Dave Grusin, and Harvey Mason. All the cuts here were originally on Watanabe's Flying Disk releases – and titles include "Samba Do Marcos", "Down East", "Morning Island", "California Shower", "My Country", "Ngoma Party", "Nice Shot", "Just Cruisin", "Massai Talk", "Samba Em Praia", "Malaika", and "My Dear Life". CD features bonus cuts – single versions of "California Shower", "Nice Shot", and "My Country". CD

Nobuo YagiMi Mi Africa ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1979. Used ... $24.99
That's quite a cover for an album by a harmonica player – but then again, Nobuo Yagi is quite a harmonica player himself! The album's got a very fresh feel – a bit fusion, but also with some rootsier percussion currents too – mixed with warmer keyboards and guitar, all to set up these really cool grooves for Yagi's sweet solos on the harmonica! The approach is like the best Toots Thielemans fusion material of the 70s – and we mean that in the best way possible – because Yagi's one of his few contemporaries who can keep things as interesting and creative as Toots, and maybe even does a better job of stepping into the spotlight, thanks to some great 70s soul/fusion backings. Most titles are in Japanese, and the set is all instrumental. CD

Victor/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the coolest albums ever cut by Japanese wood flute player Hozan Yamamoto – a set that has him working with very groovy backings from the Sharps & Flats ensemble – who almost give the whole thing an MPS label blending of funky jazz and world music sounds! The approach is wonderful – a bit more upbeat and swinging than some of Yamamoto's other records, as Nobuo Hara leads the larger group with a totally cool sound – which makes the flute lines a sweet exotic touch over straightforward, soul-drenched, big band jazz! We might even link the sound to some of Dorothy Ashby's grooviest albums for Chess/Cadet – although with flute, instead of harp – and titles include "Komoro Mago-Uta", "Soma Bon-Uta", "Kokirio Bushi", "Sado Okesa", "Tairyo Utaikomi", and "Kuroda-Bushi".

Takeo YamashitaBlack Cats/Black Footsteps ... CD
Victor/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $18.99
Chilling work from Japanese composer Takeo Yamashita – a record that echoes with the shadows of night, blending sound effects, rough percussion, and some slight jazz instrumentation – into a sound that's a bit noir, a bit avant, and very very striking. The album works like one long sound collage – a brooding portrait of life at its darkest, filled with odd shapes and sounds, disembodied voices, and things that go bump in the night! Titles are all in Japanese, but you don't need any words to understand the record – as it's got a really unique vibe that's pure sonic beauty at its best – and a great testament to the more experimental years of the Japanese recording scene!

The group features George Cables on piano, whose sound at this point is a perfect match of Bobby's chromatic style on the date – and although many of the tracks are standards, there's an openly creative feel to the record that matches some of Hutcherson's dates of the time with more original material. Herbie Lewis is on bass and Philly Joe Jones is on drums – and titles include "Star Eyes", "I Mean You", "All Of You", "Spring Is Here", "If I Were A Bell", and "Summertime". CD

Far-reaching and incredibly soulful work from Mal Waldron and Gary Peacock! Both players are at the height of their powers here, and have a warmth and sense of interplay that makes the session one of the best they did alone or together during the time. The group's a trio, with Hiroshi Murakami added in on bass – and the overall feel is similar to some of the best Japanese trio sessions of the early 70s, with great recording, long drawn-out introspective songs, and free unbridled playing that you don't always get on American sessions by the same players. Titles include "Walking Way", "What's That", "She Walks In Beauty", and "The Heart Of The Matter". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic 70s fusion from Zerosen – a Japanese group who never made it big on these shores, but who will forever be remembered for this funky gem from back in the day! The group's led by Katsunori Ishida, who shapes their sound with the kind of funky edges you might find on some of the best CTI sessions of the time – but with a groove that's even more focused, and which has this really great way of bringing up the bassy elements to the front of the mix – almost prefacing 80s styles, but with a lot more warmth and soul overall – and none of the commercialism that would come in later! There's just a bit of vocals from a female singer, but most of the set is instrumental, and really wonderful – and titles include "Cool Head", "Sunrise", "Twilight", "High Way", "Leaving Tonight", "Son Of Pin Head", and "Work Out".

Don't let the "rock" in the title fool you – as this is a jazz album all the way through, but one that has Japanese tenorist Takeru Muraoka taking on some of the hipper rock songs at the start of the 70s! Muraoka has this raspy, almost fuzzy tone at times – mixed with heavy drums, organ, and guitar – all with a fantastically powerful sound that reminds us of some of the grooviest work by Steve Marcus, Tom Scott, or John Klemmer during the same period – slight psychedelic currents, but always with a result that's more soulful than rockish – a very cool blend of elements that could have come from the Chess/Cadet studios at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Kozmic Blues", "Whole Lotta Love", "Never Can Say Goodbye", "Try", "Stranger To Himself", "It's Too Late", "Eli's Coming", and "Music For Gong Gong". CD

Fantastic work from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet – one of their greatest performances from the seminal early 60s years! The band at this time includes Cannon on alto, Nat on cornet, Victor Feldman on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and although Feldman's not as strong of a soul jazz player as Bobby Timmons or Joe Zawinul, both of whom also played with the group, his playing on this set is great, thanks to a really lively rhythm section! Includes an 11 minute version of "Sack O Woe", plus "Blue Daniel", "Azule Serape", and "Big P". CD also includes a bonus track – "Our Delight". CD

The record was cut after Lorez recorded some great sides for the Argo label – and it works off the strength of those sides, taking her unique vocal approach, forged in R&B, but smoothed by jazz, into a whole new level of expression! The backing is great – small combo, with featured musicians who include Bunk Shank and Paul Horn on reeds, and Victor Feldman and Wynton Kelly on piano – all working with moody, soulful arrangements that are a perfect accompaniment to Lorez' beautiful voice. Includes the cuts "Get Me To The Church On Time", "Satin Doll", "Show Me", "The Best Is Yet to Come", "I'm Through With Love", and 5 more! CD

The set's got a great blend of modes – Latin soul, touches of funk, and plenty of the jazzy inflections you'd expect from a lineup that includes Coke Escovedo on timbales, Paul Jackson on bass, Lenny White on drums, George Muribus on Fender Rhodes, Tom Harrell on trumpet, and Victor Pantoja on congas! Vocals are by Pete Escovedo – who brings in a heady soulful sound to the set – and the vibe is a bit like work by Malo or El Chicano, but even more jazz-based overall! Titles include "Peace Everybody", "Empty Prophet", "Can't Take The Funk Out Of Me", "Azteca", "Ah! Ah!", and "Mamita Linda". CD

A really special record from a really special group – one of two sublime 70s gems from Azteca – a wicked blend of jazz, funk, Latin, and soul – all put together by a young Coke Escovedo! Coke's ostensibly the leader of the group, but there's also a richly collaborative feel going on – a style that brings together jazz players like Tom Harrell on trumpet, Mel Martin on saxes, George Muribus on Fender Rhodes, and Flip Nunez on organ – and Latin players like Victor Pantoja on congas, Coke Escovedo on timbales, and Pete Escovedo on added percussion. In fact, the set's a key early example of the strength of the Escovedo family – and like their best later efforts, the set really stretches out and pushes the boundaries of conventional genres. There's also some great guest work from Lenny White on drums, Mike Nock on keyboards, and Neal Schon on guitars – and vocals are by a range of singers who really keep things fresh. Titles include "Red Onions", "Mazatlan", "Whatcha Gonna Do", "Mexicana, Mexicana", and "Love Is A Stranger". LP, Vinyl record album

Red (Italy), 1996. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Killer work from a group of American players who've all found a strong outlet for their talents on the Red Records label – an Italian company, but one that's really done a great job of keeping the fires going for players who sometimes don't get as much of a chance to record in the US! Every member of the group here is great – Jerry Bergonzi on tenor, Bobby Watson on alto and soprano, Kenny Barron on piano, Victor Lewis on drums, and either Curtis Lundy or David Finck on bass. The tunes are mostly originals by group members, which further makes the set sparkle – giving it a sense of originality that's quite different than the usual standards that seem to come up on other all-star sessions. Watson's horns, as always, are great – and Bergonzi's deeper tones provide a great sense of balance – all warmed up nicely by Barron's piano. Titles include "That's All Folks", "Look At You", "Out House", "De Voyeur A Voyeur", "Those Who Get From Having Not", "Out Of The Frying Pan", and "Free Movement". CD

The set's a compelling batch of jazz vocal tracks that show Andy reinventing himself for a whole new generation of jazz listeners. The backing's by a nice small group that includes Gary Bartz on alto, with whom Andy recorded extensively in the 70s – and other players include Geri Allen on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The album includes a haunting reworking of Nick Drake's amazing song "River Man", plus a version of Dori Caymmi's "Like A Lover", Monk's "Straight No Chaser", and the moody "Dark Shadows", which was a page from Earl Coleman's songbook.

The lineup alone is enough – Wayne Escoffery on tenor, Jeremy Pelt on trombone, James Burton III on trombone, Victor Gould on piano, Rashaan Carter on bass, and Mark Whitfield on drums – but together, they sound even more amazing – kind of crackling and bristling with energy, as if the players are keenly engaged in each other's company – not in a competitive way, but with a collaborative energy that even tops most other groups comprised of leaders in a single combo! Soaring colors are balanced by beautiful depths – and titles include "Iron Man", "For The Kids", "No Words Needed", "Twin Towers", "Involuntary Servitude", "Mr Willis", and "Ascension". CD

A key point in the development of the Miles Davis sound of the 60s – his first album to feature work from Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by some equally nice work on other tracks from Victor Feldman and Frank Butler! The sound here is beautifully spare – a wonderful exploration of ideas that Miles had been putting forth on some other albums for Columbia, but crafted here with a vision that's apparent in the very first note – and which transforms both the tunes and the work of the players into a focused, near-perfect sound all the way through. Titles include "So Near So Far", "Seven Steps To Heaven", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Joshua", and "Basin Street Blues" – which even sounds great in this setting! LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy's on clarinet throughout, playing with a lean, clean line that's a great link between older uses of the instrument, and some of the modern tones coming from Jimmy Giuffre in the 50s.

The sound is pretty spare and tight – electro soul, maybe filtered through a bit of a Nigerian impulse – especially as William Onyeabor acted as remixing engineer on the set, a presence that you can definitely hear in the way that some of the keyboards come across! Tunes are shorter and more focused than any of Onyeabor's work, though – with a great glow on both the groovers and few mellow moments – titles that include "Justice", "Music Makes You Move", "Music Lovers", "My Love Is For You", "Keep On Trying", "No One's Gonna Live Forever", and "Let Your Body Move".

A lost late session by Stan Getz – and one of his greatest recordings of the 80s! The album's got the simple elegance of some of his best Verve work – with a group that features Stan on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The combination of Barron and Getz is magical – with a laidback soulfulness that takes us back to the days of Sweet Rain, Voices, and some of our favorite Getz sessions from the 60s. Tracks are all quite long – most well over 7 minutes – with a simple, unfettered approach that offers Stan in all his lyrical beauty. Recorded in 1989 – but oddly never issued until now – and a real treasure all the way through! Titles include "Beatrice", "Spiral", "Sunshow", "Joanne Julia", "Soul Eyes", and "El Sueno". CD

Black Sun, Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
A much-needed look at the early jazz years of Paul Horn – featuring tracks recorded for 3 different Columbia albums of the early 60s – all of them great! At the time, Horn had a free-thinking sound that was one of the most lyrical in US jazz – working on alto and flute with a groove that really presaged the modal sound to come on the European scene – making equal use of bossa, exotic, and soul jazz rhythms – and working out a sound that was completely sublime! The set features Horn working with some great groups that include Emil Richards on vibes throughout – plus either Paul Moer or Victor Feldman on piano, and a variety of drummers and bass players that groove with a sweet west coast vibe! Tracks are from the albums Sound Of Paul Horn, Profile Of A Jazz Musician, and Impressions Of Cleopatra – and the CD features 16 titles that include "Benny's Buns", "Love & Hate", "Cleopatra's Palace Music", "Lazy Afternoon", "Anthony & Cleopatra Theme", "Yazz Per Favore", "Short Politician", and "Count Your Change".
