1 - BULL, SANDY - FANTASIAS FOR GUITAR AND BANJO - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Folk musician Sandy Bull took an unorthodox approach to stringed instruments, influenced in part by sharing an apartment with Nubian oud master, Hamza El Din. His 1963 debut LP for Vanguard, Fantasias for Guitar and Banjo, saw him backed by Los Angeles-based jazz drummer Billy Higgins: side-long epic "Blend" is influenced by eastern and middle-eastern music forms; "Little Maggie" displays a lightning-fast picking style, "Gospel Tune" hearkens to the American South, medieval classic "Non Nobis Domine" is relayed on banjo and "Carmina Burana" is given an individual finger-picking reading.

2 - BYRD, DONALD - CAT WALK - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Detroit-born trumpeter Donald Byrd was one of the most expressive players of the instrument. Recording for leading jazz labels such as Savoy and Blue Note from the late 50s, he collaborated with Cannonball Adderly, Lee Morgan, John Coltrane and Herbie Hancock. The 1962 Blue Note release The Cat Walk was a critical success; most songs were written by pianist Duke Pearson, who makes crucial contribution, along with understated drummer Philly Joe Jones, relaxed strolling bass from Laymon Jackson, and rousing sax from longstanding collaborator, Pepper Adams.

4 - DUKES DE GREY, JAN - SORCERERS - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Sorcerers is the groups debut, when Jan Dukes de Grey were still the duo of multi-instrumentalists Derek Noy, the bands songwriter and lead vocalist, and Michael Bairstow. The 18 songs of the album recorded in October 1969 show within a pure folk style the subtle use of multiple instruments like guitars, woodwinds, brass, keyboards, and percussion. Every song conjures up its own time and place, from the quiet pastoral delights of "28th June, Village Song" to the urban pulse of "City After 3.00 AM," the homage to the vast expanses of an idealized "Texas," and the Eastern promise of "Turkish Time." Moods shift dramatically from the anger-drenched "M.S.S." to the medieval musings of "Dragons" and the wonder of a "Butterfly."One of the most brilliant acoustic experiment of Folk-Psych-Prog Rock ever.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Dragons 02. Rags, Old Iron 03. 28th June, Village Song 04. High Priced Room 05. Sorcerers 06. Ode To A Schoolgirl 07. The Cheering Crowd 08. Out Of The Eastern Hills 09. M.s.s. 10. Texas 11. Yorkshire Indian Sitting In The Sun 12. Wonder Child 13. Dominique 14. Trust Me Now 15. Forms 16. City After 3.00 Am 17. Butterfly 18. Turkish Time

5 - ERICKSON, ROKY - CLEAR NIGHT FOR LOVE - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Dallas-born Roger Kynard Erickson, better known as Roky Erickson, is a legend of psychedelic music and culture. Playing piano at five years old and guitar at ten, he dropped out of high school in Austin shortly before graduating, since the school dress code demanded short hair. In 1965, his group, The Spades, made an impact with "We Sell Soul" and the following year, The 13 th Floor Elevators burst onto the scene with debut album The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13 th Floor Elevators, but the bands non-conformist attitude and open endorsement of drugs such as marijuana and LSD put them in repeated conflict with the authorities. Then, in 1968, during a performance at the San Antonio edition of the Worlds Fair, known as HemisFare, Erickson began speaking incomprehensible nonsense on stage, leading to a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia and confinement in a Houston psychiatric hospital, where he was forcibly given electroshock therapy. The following year, after being busted with a single joint, Erickson pleaded not guilty by means of insanity, leading to a 3-year stay in Rusk State Hospital, with further electroshock and Thorazine treatments. Following his release Erickson formed a group initially called Bleib Alien, which evidenced a more hard-rock orientation, later renamed The Aliens, though Erickson was also working with Austins The Explosives in the same era. Aliens material produced by Stu Cook of Creedence Clearwater Rival was issued by CBS and an independent, 415 Records. Then, in the early 1980s, Erickson became fixated with junk mail and unsolicited letters, writing to lawyers and celebrity figures on a regular basis; in 1985, solo mini-LP Clear Night For Love was produced at Music Tracks in Austin by bassist/guitarist Speedy Sparks, with former Joe "King" Carrasco and Delbert McClinton drummer, Ernie Durawa, plus Supernatural Family Band alumnus John Reed on guitar. Released by Frances New Rose label in small numbers, the release found Erickson back in semi-psychedelic/country rock mode on opening track "You Dont Love Me Yet," the plaintive "Starry Eyes" and the anthem-like title track, while "The Haunt" is more in swamp/horror rock vein and "Dont Slander Me" has heavy blues leanings.

TRACKLISTING: 01. You Don't Love Me Yet 4:20 02. Clear Night For Love 2:40 03. The Haunt 3:34 04. Starry Eyes 3:06 05. Don't Slander Me

7 - HARRIS, EDDIE - BOSSA NOVA - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Tenor saxophonist Eddie Harris is best-known for his composition "Freedom Jazz Dance," which Miles Davis brought to prominence in 1966, and for being a pioneer of the electric saxophone, yet his career is long, distinguished and varied. Born in Chicago in 1934 to a Cuban father and a mother from New Orleans, Harris studied in his youth under the influential music teacher/violinist Walter Dyett at DuSable High School and then at Roosevelt University, where he played piano and vibraphone, as well as tenor sax, appearing with tenor sax giant Gene Ammons before graduation. Following a stint in Europe in the US Army, where he played in the 7 th Army Band, Harris worked in New York for a time and then signed to Vee Jay upon returning to Chicago in 1961; debut album, Exodus Into Jazz, was named for his jazz adaptation of the theme from the movie Exodus, a chart-topping smash which became the first jazz song to win a gold disc. There were further jazz/film soundtrack explorations for Vee Jay and some concept albums too, with Bossa Nova being the most noteworthy of the bunch. The Brazilian form had been gaining favour in the US thanks to "Girl From Ipanema," yet Harris LP was not a tokenistic stab at faddism; instead, Harris uses the form as a launchpad for his own sterling solos, heard most enticingly on "Cev Y Mar" and on the dreamy opener "Mima," inspired by his young daughter, Lolita Marie. The stellar backing is part of the picture too, the hand-picked musicians led by esteemed pianist Lalo Schriffin (then still making a name for himself), with Coltrane/Monk bassist Art Davis, Dizzy Gillespie drummer Chuck Lampkin and veteran guitarist Jimmy Raney allowing Harris all the space he needs, yet never playing mere filler behind him.

8 - HIGHWAY - HIGHWAY - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Obscure Minnesota-based power trio Highway has a long and convoluted history. In 1965, guitarist/vocalist Steve Murphy joined The Epicureans, a band formed from the ashes of The Pacers and The Corsairs, both previously active in the town of Fairmont, located southeast of the state capital, Minneapolis. The group issued a couple of singles along the way (both on small independents, which unfortunately failed to generate much interest), and ultimately morphed into Highway in 1972, then with Murphy and fellow Epicureans Tim Messerli on keyboards and vocals, Tom Olson on drums and John Goossen on bass. After opening for REO Speedwagon in Wisconsin, Olson was replaced by Dan Cammarata and Goossen by Eric Bannister. The resultant groups self-titled debut album was recorded at Westminster Studio, near Fort Dodge in neighbouring Iowa, during a time when Highway was based in the tiny town of Ceylon, Minnesota; privately pressed in only 500 copies, it has since become a highly sought-after item for its unusual blend of melodic hard-rock lead guitar, psychedelic garage rock and wistful, country-tinged blues rock. Although some fans and critics have compared the group to Thin Lizzy and Wishbone Ash, primarily because of the melodic and distortion-free lead guitar licks, the band has a sound all their own, especially since all three members provide vocals, as well as fierce instrumental licks, with furious drum rolls from Cammarata and Murphy and Bannister sometimes playing the same notes in unison. Highways membership did not remain static for long and the group has since undergone further changes to yield the enduring Murphy Brothers band, yet their sole LP remains the most prized testament of their long, shifting tenure.

10 - JARRETT, KEITH - LIVE AT SENDAI JAZZ FESTIVAL, JAPAN 1986 - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Keith Jarrett: Live at Sendai Jazz Festival, Den-Ryoku Hall, Japan, 20.10.1986 The gifted American pianist Keith Jarrett is one of the jazz worlds greatest musicians. Born in suburban Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1948 with a mixed European cultural heritage, Jarrett was a child prodigy that played piano at the age of two, appeared on television, aged five, and gave his first classical recital, aged seven. After studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, he moved to New York in 1964 to perform at the Village Vanguard and then joined Art Blakeys Jazz Messengers. Drummer Jack DeJohnette subsequently brought him into the Charles Lloyd Quartet, resulting in European tours, and when that group disbanded in 1968, Jarrett began fronting his own trio with bassist Charlie Hayden and drummer Paul Motian, and also began longstanding collaboration with Miles Davis, helping to shape noteworthy releases such as Live/Evil. From 1983, Jarretts trio featured DeJohnette and former Albert Ayler collaborator Gary Peacock on bass, that version of the trio being the musicians featured on this beautiful concert staged at the Sendai Jazz Festival in 1986. Along with a sensitive rendition of showtune and Miles anthem "Stella By Starlite," highlights include a driving cut of Paul Desmonds "Late Lament" and a moving take of "I Remember Clifford," Art Blakeys memorial to trumpeter Clifford Brown.

11 - JOYCE - JOYCE - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


The Brazilian singer-songwriter and guitarist Joyce Silveira Moreno was born and raised in the middle of Copacabana, a short beach stroll from the epicentre of the bossa nova universe. Her father was a Dane that had settled in Brazil, but she was raised by her mother and stepfather in a typical Portuguese-Brazilian household. Since her older brother was friendly with leading lights of the bossa nova movement such as Roberto Menescal and Eumir Deodato, she was steeped in the form at an early age and witnessed its key evolution first-hand. At the age of 16 in 1964, she was taken to the studio by Menescal to contribute to the coveted debut album by the mythical group Sambacana, assembled to record the work of composer Pacifico Mascarenhas when the meagre budget would not allow the vocalists he preferred. Knowing that a full-time career in music was certainly not guaranteed, she began studying journalism in 1967, shortly before her controversial song "Me Disseram" reached the finals of Rios second International Song Competition. The following year, her self-titled debut album was released by Philips, produced by Armando Pittigliani, with orchestration by Dorival Caymmi and arrangements by Gaya; along with her own compositions, the album also featured songs by her rising-star friends, including Caetano Veloso and Marcos Valle.

14 - NEW YORK CONTEMPORARY FIVE - LIVE AT KONCERTSAL, COPENHAGEN 1963 - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


New York Contemporary Five: Live at Koncertsal, Copenhagen, 17.10.1963 The short-lived quintet known as the New York Contemporary Five had a lasting impact on the free jazz movement. It was formed in 1962 with trumpeter Don Cherry, who had been working with free jazz pioneer Ornette Coleman; tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp, whod been working with Cecil Taylor, Gil Evans and more recently, Bill Dixon; Danish alto saxophonist John Tchicai (whose father was Congolese), a former member of the quintet assembled by the poet and filmmaker Jorgen Leth, who moved to New York shortly before the Contemporary Fives formation; acoustic bassist Don Moore, who had played with Shepp and Dixon; and drummer JC Moses, who had played with Clifford Jordan and trumpeter Kenny Dorham. This rare performance, given at Copenhagens Koncertsal on 17 October 1963, has epically-extended cuts of Don Cherrys "Consequences" and Ornette Colemans "Emotions," plus a peppy take of Thelonious Monks "Monks Mood."

16 - RALLIZES DENUDES, LES -+ BE- - THERE'S NO HEAVEN LIKE HELL - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


One of the strangest and most enigmatic groups in the history of rock n roll, Les Rallizes Denudes, also known as Hadaka no Rallizes or Hadaka no Rarizu , were a Japanese experimental rock band that is often cited as a pioneering force of the noise rock movement. The story of the band is as strange and difficult as the music they made and although much of the tale is shrouded in mystery, everything apparently begins around Kyotos radical anti-establishment communes of the late 1960s, where androgynous frontman Takashi Mizutani formed the group in November 1967 while attending Kyoto University. Hard facts are in thin supply and the bands name employs complex punning that essentially equates to Fucked Up and Naked in Japanese, a slang reference to being high on drugs. Inspired by the Velvet Underground and other groups employing prominent, overamplified guitar, the bands music was typically based on repetitive rhythmic patterns bolstered by Mizutanis heavily distorted lead guitar, though the poor sound quality of early demos apparently turned Mizutani away from studio recordings, rendering much of their output in the form of live bootlegs, supplanted by the occasional leaked studio demo. Early performances were given as accompaniment to avant-garde theatre groups, though the group was soon deemed too loud to be a mere accompaniment, and membership fluctuated frequently, with Mizutani being the only constant, though he retreated from public view following the 1970 Red Army hijacking of Japan Airlines flight 351, with the assistance of original Rallizes bass player, Moriaki Wakabayashi, who subsequently fled to North Korea; the band continued to sporadically record and perform under various guises until 1997. The two versions of "Theres No Heaven Like Hell" presented here were recorded on 1 April 1975 at Rallizes House in Fussa, a small town to the west of Tokyo, joining Mizutani with keyboardist/guitarist Taisuke Morishitas experimental group Be, originally known as Yellow. The first version takes the form of an epic slow drone, featuring Mizutani on acid guitar, backed only by Morishitas pulsating synthesizer lines; the second version is in full marathon mode, an hour-long dirge that sees the spacey duo joined by drummer Shunichiro Shoda and a plodding bassist in the latter portion.

17 - RICOTTI & ALBUQUERQUE - FIRST WIND - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Percussionist Frank Ricotti played in the National Youth Orchestra and was rated the UKs top vibraphonist during the late 1960s. In 1971, with guitarist Mike de Albuquerque, he cut the multifaceted jazz album, First Wind, which alternated between experimental rock- influenced jazz and thoughtful adaptations of work by James Taylor, John Sebastian and Melanie Safka, with some surprising blues diversions too, such as Albuquerques "Go Out And Get It." However, Albuquerque soon joined ELO as a bassist, putting an end to the duo.

18 - SANDERS, PHAROAH - PHAROAH - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Experimental jazz giant Pharaoh Sanders made an indelible impact with his unorthodox approach to tenor sax. Born Farrell Sanders in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1940, he was given the nickname Pharaoh by his grandmother for his African heritage. Playing clarinet in church during his youth, he began playing tenor sax at high school. In 1959 he moved to Oakland, California, where he played with rhythm and blues bands and befriended John Coltrane. Moving to New York in 1961, he drifted into Sun Ras Arkestra and gained kudos upon joining Coltranes band in 1965 (the same year he issued a self-titled debut on ESP Disk), where his discordant solos formed a strong contrast to Tranes melodiousness, though each had strong impact on the other. In 1977, Sanders cut another set called Pharaoh for the New York-based underground jazz label India Navigation, with the excellent laid-back epic, "Harvest Time," featuring Pharaohs wife Bedria on harmonium, as Ohio-born double-bassist Steve Neil and former Mongo Santamaria guitarist Tsiji Munoz and former Joe Thomas keyboardist Jiggs Case craft subtle melodic backing; on side two, percussionist Lawrence Killian and drummer Greg Bandy drive the rhythm, as Sanders himself sings.

20 - SHEPP, ARCHIE - THE TRADITION - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Avant-garde giant Archie Shepp made an indelible contribution to experimental jazz. Double-LP The Tradition was recorded in Rome in 1977 for Horo Records with drummer Clifford Jarvis and bassist Cameron Brown; the raucous "Hooray For Mal" has shades of be-bop, while Duke Ellingtons "Sophisticated Lady" is largely tackled by Shepp on upright piano (with gorgeous soloing by Brown); "Things Have Got To Change" hearkens to Shepps experience of the Pan-African Cultural Festival of Algiers of 1969 and Ellingtons "I Didnt Know About You" is relayed as a soft tenor ballad with rough edges.

21 - UMILIANI, PIERO - IL PARADISO DELL'UOMO - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Italian film composer Piero Umiliani enjoyed a long and illustrious career, creating nearly 200 film soundtracks, along with 40 music library LPs and some 35 television themes. Born in Florence in 1926, he was first recognized internationally for his work on the soundtrack of 1958 crime caper I Soliti Ignoti (AKA Big Deal on Madonna Street, Persons Unknown or Le Pigeon), which featured noted jazz trumpeter, Chet Baker-the first time, in fact, that jazz music had been used for an Italian comedy feature. Umiliani teamed with Baker again in 1961, along with Croatian-American jazz singer Helen Merrill, for the soundtrack of Smog, a drama about an Italian lawyers unintended escapades in Los Angeles, and his work was later featured on American and British television shows, including The Muppets, the Benny Hill Show and the Red Skelton Show. Il Paradiso dellUomo (AKA Mans Paradise), subtitled Forbidden Japan, was a little-known documentary released in 1963 focusing on the roles assigned to women in the country, from the traditional pearl-fishing divers of the coast and urban factory workers to traditional dancers and the ambiguous world of geisha and striptease. This impossibly-rare soundtrack mixes eastern and western musical elements, veering from classical tropes to swing jazz, with Chinese singer Mei Lang Chang on a couple of tracks and singer/composer/musicologist Francesco Potenza leading the chorus on another.

22 - WALDRON, MAL -& GARY PEACOCK- - FIRST ENCOUNTER - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


After playing with Mingus, Coltrane, Lady Day and Abbey Lincoln, inventive jazz pianist Mal Waldron moved to Europe and first reached Japan in 1970, where he met Idaho-born double-bassist Gary Peacock, who had played with Art Pepper, Bud Shank, Bill Evans and free-jazz giant, Albert Ayler before moving to Japan to study zen Buddhism. First Encounter, recorded in Tokyo in 1971 for French producer Herve Bergerat, shows that the intense pairing was quite natural, the harmonic dissonance of Waldrons "She Walks In Beauty" contrasted by the up-tempo groove of Peacocks "Whats That"; future Native Son founder Hiroshi Murakami makes important contribution on drums.

24 - WILLIAMS, MARY LOU - BLACK CHRIST OF THE ANDES - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE FOX


Pianist and composer Mary Lou Williams played with nearly every major jazz performer during her long, illustrious and varied career, in addition to recording many solo works. Born Mary Winn in Atlanta in 1910 and raised in a shotgun shack, where local musicians gathered to jam, she played by ear from a tender age and learned the boogie-woogie style upon moving to Pittsburgh with her older sister Mamie. While still in high school, Williams toured with the Theatre Owners Booking Association, bringing her into the orbit of Earl Hines, Louis Armstrong and blues singer, Irene Scruggs, among others; later, based in Kansas City during the 1930s, she began composing and recording solo work. After a stint at the Cotton Club, she formed a combo in Pittsburgh that featured Art Blakey, but was soon recruited by Duke Ellington and once back in New York, began jamming with Thelonius Monk and Charlie Christian at bop hotbed, Mintons Playhouse. Art Tatum, Count Basie.you name it, she played with them! Black Christ of the Andes is easily one of the most individual albums created by Williams, or anyone else in jazz, for that matter; recorded in New York in late 1963 and first issued on Williams own Mary Records, the album has jazz explorations of divine concepts, delivered with suitably complex arrangements; "Anima Christi" and "Praise The Lord" both feature soaring assembly by Melba Liston, "The Devil" and the title track have elaborate choral voices from the Howard Roberts Singers, and instrumentals such as "Miss D D" and "A Fungus Amungus" use her expert piano skills to shock, titillate and provide light relief.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Black Christ Of The Andes (st. Martin De Porres) 02. It Ain't Necessarily So 03. The Devil 04. Miss D. D. 05. Anima Christi 06. A Grand Nite For Swinging 07. My Blue Heaven 08. Dirge Blues 09. A Fungus Amungus 10. Praise The Lord
