70s psychedelic fusion and free jazz from behind the iron curtain with Leszek Zadlo and his album, "Inner Silence".

Friends was a short lived band that included John Abercrombie on guitar. What we have here is insanely over the top fusion/post bop free form jams with gratuitous post production add on cheezy psychedelic pixie dust. This is an Abercrombie you may not have heard before.

The days when David Axelrod was a crate digger's secret passed long ago, but in case you missed out on the Axelrod sampling craze, "Song of Innocence" is still a favorite.

The 'jazziest' Axelrod album is probably "Seriously Deep".

Late 60s/early 70s analog synthesizer renditions of pop songs are a well known staple to the serious, or frivolous, 'crate digger'. In a genre where kitsch weirdness is a given, possibly the weirdest of all is "Electronic Evolution" by Richard Hayman and Walter Sear.

On this vinyl mishap masterpiece, cheezy avant-garde electronics, fuzzed out psychedelic guitar, hyper soul-jazz riffs on the B3, and scrambled JB beats join together to spell out the pop hits of the day.

Buddy Terry is a saxophonist who deserves much wider recognition. After cutting a few albums as a leader early in his career, he spent the rest of his career as a sideman in prestigious big bands such as the Duke Ellington alumni band and the Saturday Night Live band. Unfortunately, he never recorded as a leader again.

Possibly his best album was the aptly titled "Pure Dynamite", a smokin hot slab of vinyl that featured future members of Return to Forever, plus members of Herbie's Sextet as well as Woody Shaw, Joanne Brackeen and more. The music is an energetic blend of fusion, post bop and free jazz.

JazzWise magazine recently ran a feature on this album, so in the spirit of uninspired monkey see monkey doism, we shall blindly follow suit.

"Free Love" was the only album by Italian fusion group Kaleidon. On this rare hunk of vinyl we hear early 70s psychedelic fusion along the lines of Soft Machine, 70s Miles Davis and the first Weather Report album. After the demise of this group, keyboardist Stefano Sabatini went on to release several more albums, most of them in a post bop style.

Oliver Lake "NTU: Point from which Creation Begins".
Although this record did not come out until 1976, after Lake proved that he was at least a somewhat commercial commodity, it was recorded much sooner than that in the early 70s. One listen to its wild and woolly meanderings will quickly tell you that this is no mid 70s disc. Lake put out some great music over the years, but he never returned to this 'African hippie jazz' style again. The little known Richard Martin stars on guitar.

Lavice & Company was a theater group in the 70s that released one record that featured the music to their play, "Two Sisters from Bagdad". This is an extremely rare record that has been given a second life via the re-issue format. The music is like a Sun Ra approach to gospel, funk and various theatrical oddities.
