  • June 2014 Finds

    These all came from various sources. Most from my recent trip to Copenhagen at the end of last month, three from the London Record Fair this weekend and a load from today's fair. Most stuff I imagine is well known around these parts. Feel free to ask questions.

    These were all from various Copenhagen stores with Mint being the best:









    Picture One

    Herbie Hancock - Dedication - Live Japanese only LP which has a very stripped down sound which is great.
    Bazaar is a double LP of Balkan Eastern jazz sounds.
    Nana Banana is a Danish Latin funk LP.

    Picture Two

    Incredible Bongo Band - Bongo Rock - Never come across the UK press over here then found two cheap copies in Copenghagen.
    Jackie Robinson has the UBB track Pussyfooter.

    Picture Three

    Brian Bennett - Illustrated London Noise - Think this is my third copy this year!
    Fever Exploration from the £1 box. French exploito funk!
    Iron Office is a hard Danish fusion LP.

    Picture Four

    Art Reynolds has a great afro spiritual version of Feeling Good.
    Heart has the track Give me a Happy Day which was sampled by Diamond D I believe. Pointed Headless Mermaid towards another copy of this I found when digging with him!

    Picture Five

    Polish Jazz Quartet was picked up in a shop where everything else was massively overpriced. Always nice when that happens!
    Mount Everest is more Scandi latin fusion.
    Bernt Staf has one great funky track with a break.

    Picture Six

    BP Convention is great Balkan jazz by Bosko Petrovich.

    Somehow I managed to enter my unfinished post above and Now it can't be edited. If Mods can merge it would be much appreciated!!

    Picture Six

    Musical Pot Pourri is an Island LP with a nice version of It's my Thing.
    Johnny Scott - London Swings - Not seen this Studio 2 LP before. Nice swinging 60s jazz.
    Mike Longo Matrix is sealed.

    Picture Seven

    Inner Dialogue features BJ Ward. Great LP.
    Louie Bellson - Ecue Ritmos Cubanos - Great Latin jazz LP. Always buy this when I see it cheap!
    Tobias Wood Henderson - Contains the country funker Colour Blind Man.

    Next three were from today's fair with the last three being bought at the London Record Fair. All pretty obvious I think.

            From the last week:

            Art Blakey and the jazz messengers: Drum Suite - w the great latin jazzdancer Cubano Chant, classy Euro cover

            Monica Zetterlund: same - looks like a split of two previous albums but has the lovely Visa Från Utanmyra

            Sudden Impact and the best of Dirty Harry

            Paula Perry: Paula's jam b/w Reasons 12" - Masta Ace's homegirl, too bad she didn't do an album

            Duke Ellington: The African-Eurasian eclipse - bigband afro jazzrock

            Rhyming is fundamental: same 12" - 'Doo-Hop' from 1990 and Easy Mo Bee's first rec I believe, the rhyming sounds a little too inspired by BDK

            Tenor saw: Ring the alarm 7" - classic

            Grandmaster Flash and the furious 5: Gold b/w Back in the old days of hiphop - all the 'later' GMF albums had good tracks

            Richard Groove Holmes: The 6 million dollar man - not all that exciting but it's still organ jazzfunk...

            Heart: same - funky rock w Diamond D 'Gather round' sample, thanks llmod1 for the tip. Nice haul btw, hope you enjoy the Iron Office and Nana Banana

              From varying sources...



              LP's

              The Beatles - Rubber Soul (Parlophone)
              Upgraded from my battered German copy, great LP, too for some on here.

              David Briggs - Son of a preacher man (Harmony)
              Cheap punt from the market, bought on the strength of the covers, the highlight being a self penned number - 'Moon Strut'.

              Lou Rawls - Feelin' good (Capitol)
              Finally...Been after this LP for 15+ years -



              The Electric Light Orchestra - S/T (Harvest)

                  The Trinity - Wonderland Lovely mellow 80s Jazz with Ichikawa Hideo on piano and a rhythm section of Suzuki Isao and Togashi Masahiko lending funk/ avant credibility

                  Franco et le TPOK Jazz - Disques D'Or et Maracas D'Or One of the best Franco LPs from his most productive period. Truly Prime Zairean Rumba



                  Alan Lee - The Smilor Austraerlian Jazz. One side of covers, including World is a Ghetto, but the original pieces on the B side are where it's at. Nice to pick this up in a trade

                  Suzuki Isao - Ako's Dream Funky fusion classic. Already spoken for.

                  Vasilisk - Whirling Dervishes 80s industrial percussion. Their three LPs have just been reissued with frankly shoddy new artwork and strangely the originals have started cropping up at reasonable prices.

                  Franco presente Dewayon Franco started the VISA label to showcase new talent, and this is one of the best. Dewayon was an ex-OK Jazz member who returned to the fold for this outing.

                  Ohno Shunzo - Bubbles 45 rpm version of the LP with two tracks only. The title track is beautiful blissed out Pharoah Sanders style mellow/spiritual Jazz with great drums



                  Cage - Three Dances/ Reich - Four Organs I found a Morton Feldman LP in this series a while back, but this was an unexpected bonus. Classic version of the Reich piece. Love the font on the obi.

                  Sato Masahiko & New Herd - Canto of Libra Free blow out. Nice to have the OG gatefold, even if it's a bit ratty

                    fun record. "Flying Saucer" is where it's at for me.

                      The last two tracks on side two, though ... truly things of beauty.

                        you got the other Alan Lee records? the yellow one



                        (with "Dance of the Adolescents")

                        or the purple one



                        (with a wonderful cover of Lesley Duncan's "Love Song")?

                        Both terrific records.

                          I have the yellow one, but not seen the purple. He has tracks on the Moombra Jazz LPs as well, I believe.
                          Do you have those?

                          Been on a bit of a vibes kick of late. Bobby Hutcherson - San Francisco and some Khan Jamal for afters

                            get your ears round this swinging upbeat one...



                            and this much more mellow one...
