Good things come to those who wait

July 7, 2016

Its been a long long while since we brought the jams.  We have had our face in the books and noses to the grindstone.  But the goose is loose, so watch yo butt.  We will do a top to bottom ebay, grandma’s collection sandwich to celebrate the hollowdays.  To open the sesh, and to close out the Patto collection, a track from Roll ‘Em Smoke ‘Em Put Another Line Out.  Not even in the mail yet, Singing the Blues on Reds is too hot to wait for tangible possession.  Peace of mind will have to suffice.

Bottom dropper numero dois is a smokin gospel R&B crossover track, first gospel banger of the collection.  Evelyn Freeman and her exciting voices will make you move and take you to church all in one wipe snipe.  This track, featuring 14 exciting voices, is an underground hit not to be missed.  This was an essential jam to have for your in car record player (we want one) cruisin down the boulevards in the early 60s.

And for the cake on top, João Donato, our Brazilian brother from another mother.  We made a $30 offer for the this one only to be shut down.  2 weeks later we won this bad (Donato) boy for a cool 10 spot.  Good things come to those who wait.  Straight Jacket has Heise written all over it. Ah the good ole days.  Luckily for us the Brazilian jazz funk master spent a good portion of his career here in the states, and is one of the easier Brazilian artists to find US pressings.  Vai Joao vai!!!  Disclaimer: These tracks should be enjoyed with a tall glass of mint and watermelon juice on a hot summer day like today.  Enjoy!

Brown is the new green

July 13, 2015

The drought has hit us hard here in Southern California.  The lawns are festering with barren wastelands of reverse oasis.  Even records are feeling the blues.  A little relief this weekend with a dose of Brazilian ambiance.  I have been hearing the echoes of Hermeto Pascoal for far too long now.  I saw his bug eyed reflection in a small corner of Pepperland music Saturday afternoon and had to pick him up.  I played a couple songs Sunday morning, which is how I like me tea, but didn’t get the complete immersion.  It was though, enough to tip his hat of his brilliance.  It was to my delight to see an earlier album at the vintage market late Sunday morning.  The price was right, and you can’t leave chips on the table.  I made it through side 2 and it is incredible.  I am grateful, astonished and frankly a little confused.  I am glad to share this experience with the world.  As an added bonus, an Egberto Gismonti solo masterpiece for just pents.  I discovered Egberto a few months, I call it the glory days.  Egberto is a master pianist and self taught guitar phenom from the state of Rio De Janeiro.  He has moments of perfection in every album I have, which can be jazz fusion to profound reflection.  It is playing as I type, which has brought me to reconsider my candor.  This music is incredible, clear, unpredictable, aspiring.  I will leave you to decide.  Of course I couldn’t forget the man behind the curtain, the true wizard of perception, Mr. Theostyle.  I traded some of our hard earned treasures, for a jazzy rock extravaganza a few weeks ago.  Patto, fellow Englishmen, hail from the sleepy hallows of London.  They come at you with a plethora of scorching hot, melt your face rock and roll.  A perfect soundtrack to Theostyles summer bliss visual tour soon to a town near you.  Your eyes and ears can thank us later.
