Gloria Ann Taylor ‎– Deep Inside You (Selector Sound)


Label : Selector Sound

Value

Rare classic work from Gloria Ann Taylor – working in a soaring setting with the Walter Whisenhunt Orchestra! "Deep Inside You" has this unusual flow – almost stop/start in energy, but with Taylor really soaring out on her vocals, as some cool vibes and other sweet touches work some magic in the background.

Minoru Muraoka ‎– Bamboo 1970 (United Artists Records)


Label : United Artists Records

Value :

60s jazz meets Japanese bamboo flute – all in a session with a great mix of groovy and exotic touches! The record's a unique meeting of jazz and folkloric elements – done in a style that's a bit like some of the late 60s sessions of this nature on MPS, but a fair bit groovier overall – as the tracks are shorter and more focused, and often have a nice sort of bounce at the bottom. Flute is by Minoru Muraoka, and arrangements are by Takashi Ikeda and Kozaburo Yamaki, conducting their New Dimension and New Emotion groups respectively. Bits of sitar bring in an even groovier sound to the record – and the flute itself has some oddly off-kilter notes that further trip out the tunes.

I Marc 4 - I Marc 4 1971 (Nelson)


Label : Nelson

Value :

The best and most valued volume of GLP series featuring the fantastic modal madness of "André", "Peroche", "Suoni Distorti" and the milestone “Alfio” feat the flute by Alfio Galigani. The music goes from insane Psychedelic tunes to Jazz, Funk and more Bossa and Lounge tracks with plenty of Fuzz guitars, amazing Hammond job, and totally catching drum Breaks. An insane trip into early gold Italian Psychedelic and Underground vibes with loads of laden beats and grooves with the mark of the legendary Italian quartet. Simply essential!

I Marc 4 ‎– I Marc 4 1970 (Nelson)


Label : Nelson

Value :

We're glad to announce the reissue of this gem by the Library 'cult' group I MARC 4.
Probably the toughest and most Psychedelic Nelson volume by the legendary italian studio combo. A killer blend of Downtempo Funk, dope atmospheres and themes and Lounge Bossa cocktail music. Includes just fantastic tracks like "Distorsion-Mind" and "The Trip", heavy Psychedelic shots with screaming organ, "Compression" with mellow acoustic guitar and raw drums break plus other rare and mental tracks with great samples and loops. Totally KILLER session and essential Italian Library record.

Rufus And Chaka – Any Love 1980 (MCA)

Label : MCA

Value :

Produced by Quincy Jones, Masterjam was the band's fourth album to top Billboard's R&B Albums chart, and also reached number 14 on thePop chart. The album includes the singles "Do You Love What You Feel", their fourth #1 hit on the R&B Singles chart and also #30 on Pop, "Any Love" (US R&B #24, 1980) and "I'm Dancing for Your Love" (US R&B #43, 1980). In 1979, Chaka Khan found solo success with the release of the album, Chaka, and its parent single, "I'm Every Woman", which became her signature song years before "I Feel for You".
However, Khan wanted to remain a member of her long-standing band Rufus, a group she had joined in 1972. Since their 1973 debut, Khan had led on most of the group's songs. While Ron Stockert, an earlier member, had added vocals to the debut and their follow-up, Rags to Rufus, Stockert left after complaining of their label's focus on Khan, and Tony Maiden would begin to lead on more songs as the seventies drew to a close, Khan's presence continued to boost the group.
For their first album with MCA Records, which had absorbed ABC Records a year before, the group enlisted Jones to help them with the record (Khan had recorded with Jones the year before for his album Sounds...and Stuff Like That!!). The group, while still with Khan, was now starting to record without her, while Khan was starting to express a view of going solo for good while still performing with the group onstage. Despite this, the album became a success upon its release. Following Masterjam Chaka Khan recorded her second solo album Naughty and Rufus Party 'Til You're Broke, released in 1980 and 1981 respectively. Khan reunited with the band again in 1981 for the recording of Camouflage.
Jones had also brought in the Seawind Horns for help, as well as The Brothers Johnson for additional percussion help. Rufus even does a funked-up cover of Jones's own "Body Heat".

I Marc 4 ‎– I Marc 4 1970 (Nelson)


Label : Nelson

Value :

The first volume from the Nelson Records series by the infamous Italian Jazz quartet composed of Maurizio Majorana on the bass (M), Antonello Vannucchi at the organ (A), Roberto Podio at the drums (R), and Carlo Pes (C) on guitar. Seminal, deeply Underground session by the legendary Italian Library studio combo with tones of sleazy sounds starting from the Psychedelic guitar riffs, the crazy tough Funk and the groovy sharped beats to the lovely Jazz arranged theme music influenced by Samba, Bossa Nova and Easy Listening vibes of the time. I Marc 4 provided some of the best cinematic and theme music of the time, and this is one of their deepest productions. Top Italian Library LP production and unmissable piece for collectors of the genre!

i Marc 4 - 1 1971 (Sevenmen)


Label : Sevenmen

Value :

An incredible album from this hip studio combo – and one that's every bit a Hammond jazz album as it is a sound library rarity! The set's got more organ than usual from I Marc 4 – mixed with some tracks that have a great piano vibe too – all at a level that's very soulful, and which feels a lot more like a small combo working the US underground scene of the late 60s – instead of a bunch of cats working overseas in an Italian studio!

Polish Jazz Quartet ‎– Polish Jazz Vol. 3 1965 (Muza)


Label : Muza

Value :

It's hard for us to realize today how fresh was how exuberantly jazz flowered in the sixties. In the United States Miles Davis was about to gather his magnificent last quintet, and Coltrane - his last wonderful quartet, their music doomed by the encroaching changes, while our jazzmen barely discovered their possibilities...This Lp, originally recorded in December 1964, reflecting upon unlimited creative potential of Polish jazz legend Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski who is joined on this record by Polish jazz piano prodigy Karolak and the best rhythm section in Poland those days: Sandecki / Dabrowski.

Piero Umiliani - Il Corpo 1974 (Sound Work Shop)


Label : Sound Work Shop

Value :

Sweetly funky and very slinky – this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like the contemporaneous work by the great Italian Fender Rhodes combo Crossfire – but it's also filled with a spacey madness that could only come from the pen of Umiliani!

I Gres ‎– I Gres Vol. II 1975 (Gemelli)


Value : Gemelli

Label :

Never before commercially released library breaks monster recorded in 1975! Consisting of Romano Rizzati (Walter Rizzati), Silvano Chimenti, and a loose assemblage of primo Italian library session-players, I Gres recorded three blistering albums of funky library music.
A sublime selection of work from this legendary sound library ensemble – an Italian group who were so cool, so groovy, they were virtually a genre unto themselves – able to step easily between funky numbers, jazzy groovers, and these odd, offbeat styles that are especially nice! These record wonderfully wraps together a legacy of Italian sounds from the whole late 60s/early 70s soundtrack era – served up here without any sense of ego or need for identity at all – just a commitment to cool, compelling music – filled with plenty of grooves in the process.

The Black Fire - Cream 1973 (Edizioni Discografiche Vi.Di.Elle)


Label : Edizioni Discografiche Vi.Di.Elle

Value :

“Cream” by The Black Fire is a nearly impossible to find italian LP from 1973. A Library album that mix several themes including psychedelic sexy whispered scat vocals, space synth lounge, lazy bossa with spinetta, fender rhodes and a lot of congas, bongos and insane flutes; it also includes the killer wah-wah funk tune “Alcoholic” used years later as the opening song of the kung fu movie Operation Cobra aka Squadra Omicidi Chiama Cobra.

Marta Acuna - Dance, Dance, Dance 1977 (P&P Records)

Label : P&P Records

Value :

This monster Underground Disco classic was produced by the legendary Patrick Adams and it’s considered to be one of his best and rarest pressings. Released in 1977 on P&P Records, “Dance Dance Dance” was ahead of its time laying ground for the signature sound he’d soon to be known for on productions for the likes of Inner Life, Loleatta Holloway, Bumblebee Unlimited, and Musique. This Classic release combines a smooth blend of Latin rhythms, an infectious bass line and Arp keyboards that create a dubbed out cosmic vibe, while Marta Acuna’s dreamy vocals glide in and out. This is the perfect tune to close out an hot Friday night dancing, a NYC Disco Classic.

Cortex - Troupeau Bleu 1975 (Disques Espérance)


Label : Disques Espérance

Value :

A legendary bit of funky fusion from the French scene of the 70s – the standout set from Cortex, a combo who's very heavy on the keyboards! The tunes have a feel that's quite different than American electric work of the time – funky, but also a bit breezy too – with a strong Brazilian influence in some of the rhythms, and hip use of female vocals alongside the Fender Rhodes – which makes for a double layer of sound that's totally great! There's a bit of alto sax in the instrumentation, but most of the sound comes from the interplay between keyboards, voice, bass, and drums – rolling along in a sound that's stunningly soulful, and which makes the record one of the hippest European dates from the decade.

Melvin Jackson ‎– Funky Skull 1969 (Limelight)


Label : Limelight

Value :

One of our favorite albums of all times – and a legendary testament to the greatness of the Chicago music scene in the late 60s! Melvin Jackson was the bassist in Eddie Harris' very successful group of the time – and his playing on Eddie's trippy and funky records for Atlantic is one of the factors that made them so great. Here, he's working with an acoustic bass, amplified with electronics like a Varitone sax – and this strange-sounding instrument is set up in a hip group that mixes Cadet funky studio players (Phil Upchurch, Morris Jennings, Jody Christian) with some of the brighter young players of the AACM (Roscoe Mitchell, Lester Bowie, and Leo Smith.) Jackson's bass is looped through all sorts of crazy effects, and the result is this amazing blend of avant garde playing and groovy rhythms that is beyond compare!
