Brothers & Sisters
Vivid (Japan), 2014. New Copy
A cheesy cover, but one of the greatest albums we've heard so far from this jazzy Japanese combo – a set that has them sounding even more dynamic than ever – but with a slightly different vibe! The instrumentation somehow feels even leaner, but still has all that very bracing feel from ... CD

Plays John Carpenter EP
Versatile (France), 2010. Near Mint-
A pretty great tribute to the film music of John Carpenter by Parisian avant disco duo Zombie Zombie – pulsing, minimalist electronic melodies and eerie atmosphere that's nicely reverent of Carpenter's compositions, yet steering it towards a darkly lit dancefloor! Really cool stuff, a ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Comer
F Communications (France), 2001. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Jazzy French house tracks – in the best tradition of work on the F Communications label! A few of these numbers are straight house tracks, handled with some strong soulful beats – but the even better ones have some great flourishes over the top, like trumpet solos, female vocals, and ...

Ride On (original version)
Unique (Germany), 2001. Used
Modern mod groovers – a serious 60s retro sound in force, mixing Hammond organ, bossa beats, jangly guitars, and a bit of Motown soul – very much in the Blow Up kind of style, with perhaps a bit more of a modern bounce in the beats! There's some campy elements to the overall production ... CD

Heaven & Earth
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. New Copy
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boulevard
F Communications (France), 1995. Used
Finally repressed! This is the classic first album by St Germain – aka Ludovic Navarre – issued here with the "complete series" of tracks from the original effort. Like St Germain's huge-selling Tourist effort for Blue Note, this one's a great batch of jazzy club grooves ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BBE (UK), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs
A pair of sweet mix CDs from Joe Claussell and Black Coffee – each done in support of Djoon, the multi-cultural nightspot in Paris! Joe Claussell brings out all his best tones here – those cosmic elements mixed with earthier elements that have always kept his music grounded so firmly ... CD

Whole Other
Fine Line (UK), 2014. New Copy
Sublime spacey sounds from drummer Richard Spaven – a contemporary musician, but one who's got the same sort of an ear for a laidback groove that we love in electric jazz from the 70s! Most tracks here feature prominent Fender Rhodes or guitar – stepping out in this style that's slowly ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Adrian Thaws
False Idols/K7, 2014. New Copy
Tricky's darker than ever here – sounding really spooky, moody, and, well, downright tricky in the way he brings together so many different strands of styles from the previous few decades – then weaves them into a contemporary and personal soundscape that has just the right space for ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Talkin' Loud/Harvest, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
One of the hippest records we've heard in years from Gilles Peterson – a wonderful project that brings together classic and contemporary Brazilian talents, and some key London artists as well! The lineup features giants from the sorts of older Brazilian records that Gilles hipped us to many ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Free Souls
Schema (Italy), 2014. New Copy 2 LPs
A brilliantly soulful set from Nicola Conte – a record that's got all the tight jazzy instrumentation we love in his other records, but one that's also got some wonderful vocal work as well! Singers are a perfectly-chosen batch of the best of the underground – and include Jose James, ... LP, Vinyl record album

III
Innovative Leisure, 2014. New Copy
CD...$12.99 13.98 (LP)
The best work so far from this ultra-hip trio – an amazing combination of keyboards, bass, and drums – served up in styles that are rooted in funk and jazz, but go to so many other places as well! The drums crackle with a quality schooled in 70s breaks and beats, stripped down to their ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cineploit (Austria), 2012. New Copy
A really great group with a strong influence from 70s Italian soundtracks – one that serves up some mighty spare instrumentation that just includes percussion and keyboards – the latter of which is heavy on organ and synthesizer! The music has a really sinister feel – like the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tawk Tomahawk
Flying Buddha, 2013. New Copy
A pretty remarkable set of spacey soul songcraft from Hiatus Kaiyote – a Melbourne group that blends moody, laidback live soul instrumentation with bubbling futuristic elements in a surprisingly seamless way – elevated even higher by strong songwriting and the soulful vocals of Nai Palm! ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brainfeeder, 2013. New Copy 2LP
Thundercat at the top of his game – delivering spacey synth soul backdrops that are as insistent as they are innovative – paired with emotionally invested vocals and lyricism! Thundercat has a kinship with Brainfeeder founder and creative partner Flying Lotus, particularly given their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Compost (Germany), 2001. Very Good- 4LP
A brilliant celebration of the genius of the Compost record label – an imprint that Gilles Peterson calls "the most consistent and forward thinking record label" in Europe! We feel the same way, and this oversize set is the best way you'll ever find to dip into the label's richly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Feet Music
Jazzland/Universal (Japan), 2002. Used
The most truly jazz-based group on Norway's hip Jazzland label – a quintet of players that know how to push an avant garde solo into a groove, and vice versa! The album's free-thinking and quite striking – as some tracks crackle with the energy of an early Mingus record, filtered ... CD

Island (UK), 1995. Used
A great slice of future jazz funk from the mid 90s – a then-groundbreaking compilation that features work that's turned out to be some of the best-remembered from the generation! There's a total of 16 tracks in all – and titles include "Revenge Of The Number" by Portishead, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
London, 1995. Used
A great bit of messed up funk from the Beastie Boys' keyboard player. Lots of nice organy choppy funky grooves, quirky pop tunes and even a few weird vocal bits. Titles include "Sixth Sense", "Pretty Pain", "Ba Ba Ba Boom", "Don't Miss The Boat", "Insec ... CD

Stones Throw, 2010. Used Gatefold
A mad mix of spaced out jazz funk from Madlib – working here in a style closer to his benchmark Yesterday's New Quintet mode of forward looking band-based grooves – but also taking it even further and into deeper realms! The Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz & Percussion Ensemble ... CD

Grand Love Story
Yellow (France), 1997. Used 2CD
Excellent funky stuff from the legendary Yellow Productions team! As the notes say: "Produced and mixed with incomparable taste and perception by the still handsome but real stoned Kid Loco," and as proof, the record's sot some heavy beats, some vocals, some funky rumbling bass, all ... CD

Wall
Playwright (Japan), 2014. New Copy
We really love these guys – and are continually amazed at what they can do with just bass, drums, and piano – all very conventional instruments, but used by Fox Capture Plan in this soaringly soulful style! The music's not entirely jazz – because all three instruments are very ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Agogo (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A really lovely set from this enigmatic duo – a mix of the sweet French vocals of Myra Maud and the keyboards of Lutz Krajenski – then agumented by lots of warm jazzy touches! The record's got a voice that's all its own – French language lyrics, bossa-tinged backings, and soulful ... CD

Broken Circuit
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy
Anoushka's a duo, as you might have guessed from the image on the cover – and a great one at that, with these sublime spacey soul vocals from Victoria Port, mixed with her own keyboards and more beats and keys from Max Wheeler! The music's got a lean quality, but also soars with a cosmic ... CD

R2 (UK), 2014. New Copy
Some of the warmest grooves we've heard so far from Osunlade – a beautiful selection of tracks that work perfectly together – almost as if the artist himself had a hand in their creation!
