Alain Mion leads a new Cortex – grooving nicely, too – doing it live in Paris! Mion is at the grand piano for a good deal of the first side, energetically leading a great group on some stellar, timelessly jazzy numbers. The second half of the set has him on Fender Rhodes, for tracks that fully dive into the jazz funk vibe of classic Cortex. The musicians are fantastic, too! Patrik Boman on bass, Gerard Prevost on electric bass, Adeline De Lepinay on percussion and some vocals, Michael Kersting on drums,and a great lineup of soulful saxes: "Loic Soulat Pietro Tonolo, Greg Deletang, Romano Pratesi and Phil Brohet. Includes a nice set of Mion originals including "Phila Nite Song", "The Wrong Soul Blues", "When The Ship Sails Away", "East St. Louis, 1917", "The Tap Tap", "Green Street" and more.

Trad Vibe (France), 1979. New Copy
The lost fourth album from Cortex – recorded near the end of the 70s, but still with a groove that's heavy on Fender Rhodes! The record's really just the effort of keyboardist Alain Mion – who also uses lots of moog, Hammond, and other keyboards too – and sings lyrics on most ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pourquoi
Trad Vibe (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A lost later slice of work from Cortex – a bit tighter than some of the group's previous albums, but equally funky overall! There's a bit less jamming here than before, the Cortex have definitely developed an ear for the dancefloor – a jazzy funk style that would be perfect in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Enter (with bonus CD)
Rune Grammafon, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the coolest, wildest performances we've ever heard from the Fire Orchestra – an expanded version of a core jazz combo that includes Mats Gustafsson on tenor – but which here has grown to a very bold lineup of musicians with a trio of voices as well! The album features one long ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jacana (with bonus CD)
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong ... LP, Vinyl record album

Here & Now
Catalyst, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Very different work than usual from Frank Foster – and pretty darn great! The album was put together by arranger Billy Mitchell – with a warm and sunny take on soul jazz that's every bit the best side of the Catalyst Records sound – kind of a sweeter, slightly electric take on ...

Sound Soul & Spirit (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Sublime live sounds from the great Nat Birchall – one of the most spiritual jazzmen currently working today! The set has Nat and his quintet really stretching out – playing his own great compositions, plus some Impulse and Strata East classics too – all at an open, searching, ... LP, Vinyl record album

When The World Was One
Gondwana (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP
Incredible modal sounds from trumpeter Matthew Halsall – one of our favorite contemporary jazz artists, and one whose vision just gets bolder and bolder with each new record!

Change Of The Century
Atlantic, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
Essential stuff! This is one of Ornette Coleman's greatest albums – and it was recorded during a period when he just couldn't miss! The group features Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – working here with a lively dancing sound on the kit, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Iron Man
Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger ... LP, Vinyl record album

Your Mama Don't Dance
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Funky organ and plenty of vamping – a really tight little set from the mighty Charles Kynard – who's working here with a really wide-ranging command of the keyboard! As with some of the other Mainstream Records sessions of the time, the backings here are somewhat full – arranged ... LP, Vinyl record album

Geissel Des Fleisches
Digatone (Germany), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A great early soundtrack from Gerhard Heinz – an artist we know more for his sexy scores of the 70s, but who steps out here in a cool blend of jazzy styles! The sound's right up there with some of the best early 60s Italian work – rooted in jazz, but quickly taking off into a range of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the best work we've heard from Michael Jackson in years – even though the set brings together lost recordings from the many years of Michael's career! The range of sounds here is really wonderful, and the performances are surprisingly great – moments that somehow never found ... LP, Vinyl record album
