VariousHighlights Of Vortex ... LP
Folkways, 1958. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A very cool set of music – originally recorded as part of a mixed sound/image experiment shown at the San Francisco Planetarium in the late 50s! There's definitely a lot of early analogue electronics going on here – but the presentation is also sometimes a bit more playful, and almost earthy, too – a great change from some of the more avant or academic records of this nature – and an illustration that even early on, there were poetically creative folks who found a lot of ways to work with a personal approach to the new medium! Titles include "Notes On The History Of A World Part 3" by Gordon Longfellow, "Rhythm Study No 8" by Henry Jacobs, "Trilogy" by David Talcott, "Electronic Kabuki Mambo" by Henry Jacobs, "For The Big Horn" by William Loughborough, and "Loop No 3" by David Talcott.

Robin KenyattaUntil ... CD
Vortex/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
One of the earliest albums as a leader from reedman Robin Kenyatta – and a set that's also one of his most compelling too! There's a definitely freer sound here than on some of Robin's smoother sets from the 70s – a vibe that's somewhere near the space of Impulse Records in the post-Coltrane years, and which is right at home on Atlantic's Vortex label subsidiary. A few tracks get surprisingly out, but always with a nice sense of focus, especially in the rhythms – and in addition to Kenyatta's own bold work on alto sax, the album features performances by Roswell Rudd on trombone, Mike Lawrence on trumpet, Walter Booker on bass, Fred Simmons on piano, and Horace Arnold on drums. The tunes have lots of sharp edges – almost Ayler-like at times, but more inside – and titles include "You Know How We Do", "Little Blue Devil", "This Year", and "Until". CD

✨✧ Miroslav VitousBass (aka Mountain In The Clouds) ... CD
Vortex/BGO (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest moments ever from bassist Miroslav Vitous – a very cool album recorded for the trippy Vortex label! The lineup here has Miroslav working with key help from the American underground – piano from Herbie Hancock, tenor from Joe Henderson, and drums from Jack DeJohnette – plus added guitar from John McLaughlin, who seems to have the same spacey sensibilities as Vitous! Henderson really opens up too – in that fluid style of his post-Blue Note work on Milestone – and obviously Herbie's a great one for a set like this too – hitting some of the spiritual modes of his Warner work. Some tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Infinite Search", "I Will Tell Him On You", "Mountain In the Cloudes", and "Epilogue". Originally issued as the album Infinite Search on Embryo, but expanded here with the additional track "Cerecka". CD

Steve Lacy, Evan Parker, Enrico Rava, & OthersLaboratorio Della Quercia ... LP
Horo/Alternative Fox (UK), 1979. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
A fantastic entry into the improvising orchestra genre – a set that's similar to classics by ICP and London Jazz Composers Orchestra – and which also features a bit of crossover in members with both groups! The lineup here features the cream of the crop of the European avant scene of the late 70s – all brought together with that special care that always makes Horo Records albums so wonderful! There's a beautiful balance between group sounds and individual solo voices – very important, given that the strong lineup features musicians who includes Roswell Rudd and Danilo Terenzi on trombone, Kenny Wheeler and Enrico Rava on trumpets, Steve Potts on alto and soprano, Evan Parker on tenor and soprano, Steve Lacy on soprano, Massimo Urbani on alto, Frederik Rzewski and Martin Joseph on pianos, Tristan Honsinger and Irene Aebi on cellos, Kent Carter and Roberto Bellatalla on bass, Paul Lytton on drums and percussion, and Noel McGhee and Roberto Gatto on drums. Phew – that's a long list, and if you know the names at all, you'll know the tremendous sense of creativity that goes into the record – on long improvised tracks that include "Tromblues", "La Quercia", "Vortex Waltz", "The Message From The Maine", and "Dialogando".

VariousHeisei No Oto – Japanese Leftfield Pop From The CD Age 1989 to 1996 ... CD
Music From Memory (Netherlands), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 35.98
A very cool collection that opens up who new territory for digging into the wonderful world of Japanese underground music – a set that features titles that were only issued on CD at the time, which might make these cuts even more obscure for those vinyl-centric folks looking into the music! The spirit here is often similar to some of the Japanese minimal music of a few years before – tuneful, but in an offbeat way – often electronic, but also very warm and organic – evolved a bit by some of the changes in technology as the 90s approach, but still with a really beautiful, special sort of sound – one that's so different than music from Anglo scenes at the time. Titles include "Lorang" by Jun Sato, "Unity" by Hiroki Ishiguro, "Harai" by Keisuke Sakurai, "Take No Michi" by Dream Dolphin, "A Tale" by Synagetic Voice Orchestra, "Ink" by Kina Tomoko, "Stop Me" by Tadahiko Yokogawa, "Phlanged Vortex" by Eiki Nonaka, "Yeelen" by Love Peace & Trance", "Retro Electric" by Keisuke Kikuchi, and "Mermaid" by Dido.

✨✧ Nat BirchallMysticism Of Sound ... LP
Ancient Archive Of Sound (UK), 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual albums we've ever heard from saxophonist Nat Birchall – and that's saying a lot, given the very unusual qualities of most of his work! Yet this set is very special in that it's a solo effort – music by just Nat himself, but never on one instrument at a time – as he works in his own studio to create these tunes that have a strongly spiritual vibe, especially for music from one individual – with a tenor or soprano sax solo often in the lead, amidst other instrumentation that includes bass, drums, percussion, bells, and bass clarinet – plus a bit of work on a Korg minilogue! If you're worried about the album sounding gimmicky, or lacking the depth of some of Birchall's other recordings – don't – because the whole thing is as rich and soulful as all the other kinds of records that have made us love Nat so much over the years. Titles include "Dance Of The Sun God", "Omniscient Beings", "Outer Realm", "Space Time Vortex", "Celestial Spheres", "Cosmic Visitant", and "Inner Pathway". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ LA ExpressLA Express/Shadow Play ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of jazz funk classics from this group who got their start with reedman Tom Scott! First up is the self-titled LA Express – funky fusion with a bit of a studio feel – played by the LA Express, a combo best known for their work with Tom Scott – stepping out here strongly on their own! Even without Scott's sax in the lead, the sound here is still pretty darn sharp – and the lineup features Robben Ford on guitars, Victor Feldman on keyboards, Max Bennett on bass, and John Guerin on drums and percussion – plus saxophones from David Luell, who kind of steps in where Scott left off! There's some nice jamming that's on the tighter side of the CTI sound – with lots of choppy sax lines from Luell over sweet electric rhythms – and titles include "The Shrug", "Stairs", "Cry Of The Jungle", "It's Happening Right Now", "Western Horizon", and "Down The Middle". Shadow Play is proof that the group could stand strongly on their own away from former leader Tom Scott! This time around, the sound is a bit more built-up than before – put together with a slight dose of soul in the mix, which really warms things up from the sharper sound of their debut! The album features vocals on 3 numbers – wonderful wordless scatting from Joni Mitchell on the track "Nordic Winds" – which almost comes across like a rare Euro fusion cut from the time – and straighter soulful singing from Paulette McWilliams on the tunes "Double Your Pleasure" and "Dance The Night Away". Players include Victor Feldman on keyboards and percussion, David Luell on saxes, Peter Maunu on guitar, Max Bennett on bass, and John Guerin on drums – and other titles include "Shadow Play", "Chariot Race", "Velvet Lady", "Mad Drums & Englishman", and "Vortex".

✨✧ Gary BurtonGood Vibes ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Gary Burton hits a sweet electric funky sound here – a great groove that really makes the album stand out from most of his other work! The support Burton gets is a big reason for the greatness of the date – as he's working in a group that includes Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on piano and organ, Chuck Rainey on bass, and Bernard Purdie on drums. The album's got a bit of trippiness to it – kind of in the style of some of Herbie Mann's funky production work for the Vortex label – and a few cuts have producer Joel Dorn working with Arif Mardin on the cuts, giving them a more expansive sound that pushes Burton's playing nicely. The vibes have a dark chromatic quality to them that sounds great next to the sweeter playing of the funky player – and the record's filled with nice numbers like "Vibrafinger", "Las Vegas Tango", "Boston Marathon", and "Leroy The Magician".
