WEEKLY UPDATE 31/10: EURO JAZZ AND HIP HOP








Back on track again for a European jazz update, plus a small but nice batch of hip hop LPs. Many titles deserve mentioning, but special honors must go to Bertil Strandberg's "Cirrus" and Clarke Boland Sextett's "Music for the small hours". Hip hop fans can pick from classic albums by Gang Starr, Eric B & Rakim, Dr Dre, Group Home, Jeru The Damaja, Ghostface Killah and Main Source.

Next week sees a high-octane soul & funk update, expect some terrific 60s & 70s stuff, both LPs and 45s. We have been buying heavily over the past couple of months, and the piles of records waiting to be put out for sale are truly mouth-watering, both for quality and quantity. In other words, we look forward to finishing 2014 in fine style!

RECOMMENDATIONS




BUDOS BAND - BURNT OFFERING

Dark instrumental funk with some psychedelic touches. If you like their previous albums, this one is a safe bet.



ANDERS AHLEN UNIT - LINES AND DOTS

Swedish free jazz from a quintet featuring trumpet, sax and guitar. Really excellent stuff that sits between Dolphy's "Out to lunch" and Barney Wilen's "Zodiac".



VARIOUS - PERMANENT VACATION 3

Very strong 4 track house EP with personal picks in Chateau Marmont's "Nibiru" (Beautiful Swimmers mix) and Sagittariun's "The circle stops somewhere".



ZITO RIGHI -ALUCINOLANDIA

Brazilian holy grail featuring Sonia Santos on vocals. Beautiful high-quality reissue.



HARVEY SCALES - TRYING TO SURVIVE / TRACKDOWN

One of the most wanted funky 70s soul tracks on the collectors scene in recent times. Flip is a classic northern soul spin. Reissue.



TOM SCOTT / PETE ROCK & CL SMOOTH - TODAY / T.R.O.Y.

Awesome folk/funk/jazz track from Tom Scott, as famously sampled by Pete Rock for "T.R.O.Y." which you find on the flip. Reissue 7".



PLACEBO - BALL OF EYES

Highly sought-after LP from the legendary Placebo. Contains the monster tracks "Humpty dumpty" & "Aria".



PLACEBO - 1973

Incredibly sought-after funky fusion LP from Marc Moulin. Contains the fantastic "Balek" and "Bolkwush".



GEORGE THEODORAKIS - THE RULES OF THE GAME: ORIGINAL STUDIO RECORDINGS (1978-1996)

Unreleased material form the vaults of Theodorakis home studio, as well as a few selections from his "Margo" and "Sima" LP's. Cosmic disco, experimental synthesizer pieces and some tunes that sound like Otis G Johnson, if he spoke Greek and had access to more expensive equipment.



VARIOUS - FORGE YOUR OWN CHAINS - HEAVY PSYCHEDELIC BALLADS AND DIRGES 1968-1974

Deep, psychedelic rock/soul/funk tracks. Really great compilation, many of the tracks have serious staying power. Highlights for me are "Song of a sinner" by Top Drawer and D.R. Hooker's "Forge your own chains".



JANKO NILOVIC - POP IMPRESSIONS

Unlike most library records, Janko Nilovic's efforts are usually not one-trackers. This LP is one of the best examples of this, and a real joy from start to finish. Remastered reissue.



VARIOUS - HARMONY, MELODY & STYLE VOL 1 - LOVERS ROCK IN THE UK 1975-1992

UK lovers rock sound over four sides, check Sandra Reid's "Don't Tell Me Tell Her" and La Famille's "All Night Long".
