LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 5

Compelling compositions from the great Henry Threadgill – recorded here with a really like-minded batch of players who perfectly help him realize his musical vision! There's a nicely snakey feel to some of the tunes here – almost a journey in jazz expression from the left side of the spectrum – lead with a bit more strength than some of Threadgill's other contemporaries, but still allowing plenty of room for solo expression! Two percussionists drive the ensemble – Pheeroan Aklaff and John Betsch – and other players include Ray Anderson on trombone, Rasul Siddik on trumpet, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Deidre Murray on cello – as well as Threadgill himself on flute, alto, tenor, and clarinet. Amina Claudine Myers contributes vocals on one number – "A Piece Of Software", which features lyrics by Cassandra Wilson – and other titles include "Just Trinity The Man", "Homeostasis", "Higher Places", "Subject To Change", and "This".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Saturn/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most soulful Sun Ra albums ever – very much on the Lanquidity tip, and done with a great mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation!

United Artists/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1962. New Copy
Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heavy Axe
Fantasy, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Although he's best known for his albums on Capitol, David Axelrod cut this great record for Fantasy during the mid-70s, and it features Cannonball Adderley producing Axelrod's work (instead of the other way around, as on Cannonball's albums from the time). The tracks here are a bit more jazz funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

A prime set of rare material from Greek electronic music pioneer Vangelis Katsoulis!

Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Musique Mondiale/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing mix of modes from the Super Djata Band – a record that has deep Malian roots in the rhythms, but which also offers up some key electric touches on guitar – served up here with plenty of lead solos from Zani Diabate! And when we say "lead", we don't mean the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Super Djata De Bamako Vol 2 – Blue
Musique Mondiale/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
Stellar work from Zani Diabate and the Super Djata Band – a classic early 80s album by the combo, but one with a feel that's instantly timeless as well! The rhythms here are relatively spare, but very striking – usually these interweaving basslines and subtle percussive parts – ... LP, Vinyl record album

BBE (UK), 2001. New Copy 2LP
The first of BBE's forays into current hip hop – and a wonderful debut in the series!
