Sho Nuff

Tonite
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980.
A southern funky nugget from Sho-Nuff – issued at an early 80s point when the Malaco label was open to other modes besides just blues and deep soul! The record's got a tight clubby crackle that feels like something from the New York indie scene of the time – a lean groove that's very ... CD

Jeff Parker

Suite For Max Brown
International Anthem/Nonesuch, 2020.
Mindblowing music from Jeff Parker – sounds that we always knew were part of his core, but which have maybe taken most of his career to emerge! This album follows beautifully from Jeff's previous album for International Anthem – and like that one, it's an explosion of new and old ideas ... CD
Bongo Joe (UK), 1970s.
Amazing sounds from a scene we're just beginning to know – the sega music of the islands Mauritius, Seychelles and Reunion Island – all located in a very unique cultural cross-current in the Indian Ocean! The music here is often relatively spare and rootsy – guitars that are ... CD
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/1970s.
Great sounds from the relatively small catalog of CRS Records – a Philly company who only issued a handful of singles over a number of years – but who really managed to come up with gold in the process! CRS has a great way of mixing together deep soul and funk – often from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni

Afro Discoteca Reworked EP
Four Flies (Italy), 1978/2020.
Four fantastic tracks from the Afro Discoteca record by sound library genius Alesseandro Alessandroni – all reworked in contemporary versions, yet in a way that never loses the funky charm of the originals! There's a real respect for classic styles going on here – partly because the ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
A soaring batch of disco gems, club cuts, and undiscovered nuggets – all pulled together to make a set that's even better than the first entry in this Disco Wonderland series! DJ Andy Smith and associates bring together a great array of fresh tracks from back in the day – not massive ... CD

Sparkle

Sparkle
Jam Sessions/Cultures Of Soul, 1979. Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic disco album from the late 70s – obscure, but with a very funky pedigree, and one that includes musical ties to earlier groups The Skullsnaps and Wood Brass & Steel! The instrumentation here is a bit like the latter – well-crafted ensemble funk with a deeper, more jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nacka Forum (Goran Kajfes & Jonas Kullhammar)

Sa Stopper Festen (180 gram pressing)
Moserobie (Sweden), 2020.
Fantastic sounds from Nacka Forum – a group with a name that might be a bit unusual, but which represents some of the strongest work on the Moserobie label in recent years! The lineup here is a quartet – Goran Kajfes on trumpet and mellophone, Johan Bethling on bass, Kresten Osgood on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeremy Pelt

Art Of Intimacy
High Note, 2020.
The title's no lie, as the set's one of the most intimate albums we've ever heard from trumpeter Jeremy Pelt – a set that features his well-shaped lines in a trio with George Cables on piano and Peter Washington on bass! The drum-less format is really wonderful, and Pelt really takes ... CD

Woody Shaw

Lotus Flower
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982.
Beautiful later work from Woody Shaw – perfectly honed, in the soaring, stretching, soulful exploratory style of his best work in the 70s! The group's a quartet with Mulgrew Miller on piano, Stafford James on bass, Tony Reedus on drums, and Steve Turre joining Woody in the frontline – ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), 1980. (pic cover)
Three great tracks from this later soundtrack by 70s maestro Stelvio Ciprani – all of them pretty darn wonderful! The "sequence 1" variation has this slow-building mix of percussion that's nicely exotic, but touched with some of the warmth of Stelvio's more famous crime and erotic ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. 2CD
A huge collection of work from the great Bobby Charles – a sometimes-overlooked figure in late 50s music, but a key force in developing the sound of Louisiana at the time! Bobby hailed from the cajun part of the state, but also drank heavily from the R&B that was brewing up in New ... CD
Folkways, 1960. (reissue)
The sounds of the Tuareg culture have gotten some surprisingly strong global circulation in recent years – thanks especially to a few key guitarists who've gained international attention – but this 1960 recording by Folkways Records may well be one of the first times the music of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Rivers

Zenith
No Business (Lithuania), 1977.
A fantastic lost slice of work from reedman Sam Rivers – recorded at a point when he was really able to let loose and go for a long stretch of a time – and with a mode that's a bit similar to his better-known late 70s recordings for the Circle label! Some of the elements here are the ... CD

Jim Snidero

Project K
Savant, 2020.
The Project K here is a reference to Korea – a culture that saxophonist Jim Snidero has been engaging with for the past few decades, and which takes a very strong form here in his music! The album is one of Snidero's most compelling in years – and features a group that's already great ... CD
Culture Power 45, 2020.
The Chicago-centric Culture Power 45 teams up NYC's Cocoonmovements for the Afro Picks Vol 1 compilation – picking out mic and production talent from not only the midwest and east coast, but the west coast and southern scenes too – diverse in sound and style, united in the timeless ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rapster/BBE (UK), Late 70s.
The genius of Roy Ayers knows no end – and as this set of unreleased work from the 70s proves, Roy was always working at top form back in the day – even above and beyond his classic albums from the time! The grooves here are tremendous – funky, soulful, jazzy, and every bit as ... CD

Alhaj Bai Konte, Dembo Konte, & Ma Lamini Jobare

Gambian Griot Kora Duets
Folkways, 1977.
A beautiful little record – one that features cascading tones from the strings of the kora, mixed with occasional vocal moments too! The album was recorded in Dakar and Brikama in the mid 70s – and is maybe the start of a great run of later sessions that found a way of taking this ... CD

Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media

Head Rock (Japanese Record Day release)
Columbia (Japan), 1970. Gatefold (reissue)
A definite head rocker here – a brilliant bit of funky jazz from Japan, and a record that beautifully balances acoustic and electric elements! Jiro Inagaki plays some heavy tenor and soprano sax on the record – working with a combo that includes electric guitar, electric bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fumio Itabashi

Impact
Paddle Wheel/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984.
Pianist Fumio Itabashi's definitely making an impact with this record – pushing his music even farther than before with some inventive, creative arrangements that make strong use of trumpet, trombone, and tenor sax! Itabashi's piano is at the core of the record, but he's moving in ways that ... CD
