JP Robinson

JP Robinson Story
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s.
Lost southern soul gems from JP Robinson – a Miami singer who was one of the first to record for the TK Records empire at the start of the 70s – and works here in that beautiful blend of deep soul and funk that made the Miami scene such a crucial force after Memphis and Muscle Shoals! ... CD

Bottom Rhythm Jam

Primitive
Basis (Japan), 2019.
It's been a number of years since we last heard from Bottom Rhythm Jam – but man, these guys have definitely kept things together – and maybe even seem more "bottom rhythm" than ever before! The lineup features drums from Takehiro Shimizu of Indigo Jam Unit – mixed with ... CD

Carla Bley/Andy Sheppard/Steve Swallow

Life Goes On
ECM (Germany), 2020.
Beautiful sounds from pianist Carla Bley – a musician who just keeps on blowing us away as the decades move on – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how many years she's been making music! There's a really special quality to this record – a warmth and maybe just a slight ... CD

Marcos Valle

Braziliance!
Warner/Mr Bongo (UK), 1967.
One of the most important early albums by Marcos Valle – a set of instrumental tracks recorded with lots of acoustic guitar! Even though Valle was well known as a singer and composer of bossa nova tunes, the set instead focuses on his instrumental work – recording his guitar ala Jobim ... CD
Studio One, Late 60s/Early 70s.
A heavy package of treasures from the vaults of Studio One – tracks from the early days of the label that really illustrate the special touch that Studio One had right from the start! The work here is some of the most soulful from the early years of reggae – Jamaican music that's ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s.
A whole new genre of soul music – all pulled together by the legendary Rainer Trueby – famous global DJ, and the guiding force behind Compost Records for many many years! This set's all older work, a mix of rare and familiar soul records from the late 70s and early 80s – but ... CD
XL/International Anthem, 2010/2020.
A fantastic tribute to a fantastic record – one that takes all the core lyrical creations of Gil Scott Heron from I'm New Here, then adds in a wide array of new music from drummer/genius Makaya McCraven! The approach is similar to some of Makaya's own albums – which are both performed ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s.
An incredibly rich collection of work from the legendary Brunswick and Dakar Records labels – and one of the first to really get at the labels' rich legacy of 7" singles that were never issued on any sort of full length albums! The Brunswick sound was a powerhouse in the late 60s and ... CD

Hidefumi Toki

Black Eyes
Days Of Delight (Japan), 2018.
Hidefumi Toki was one of our favorite Japanese saxophonists back in the 70s – and here, he returns to the fold with an album that has all the edge and soul of some of his best records from back in the day! Toki always had a way of balancing straight lines with sharper elements – and ... CD
Million Dollar Disco/BBE (UK), Late 70s. 2CD
Classic cuts, made even better by the magic hands of Al Kent – a mixing talent we've trusted for years, and one with an uncanny knack for making the same kind of special sounds you'd hear on a rare club edit from back in the day! These tracks aren't remixed, or bogged down with new musical ... CD

Tim Berne's Snakeoil

Fantastic Mrs 10
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020.
That's no snake oil in the bottle, it's fantastic music from this razor-sharp quintet – maybe one of the most fantastic projects that saxophonist Tim Berne has given us in many years, and a group that just seem to get better and better with each new record! There's a combination of reed and ... CD

Dave Burrell

Only Me
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973.
Some of the most beautiful work ever recorded by pianist Dave Burrell – a solo session issued only in Japan, featuring Burrell on a Steinway recorded in the wide open space of a performance hall in Tokyo! There's a photo on the back cover that has a pair of suitcases behind Burrell at the ... CD
Plug Seven (Australia), 2020. 2LP Gatefold
A great little compilation – and one that really makes us want to hear a lot lot more from all the artists in the lineup! Think of this one as a bit like some of the excellent Brownswood compilations that have hipped us to changes on the London scene during the past few years – as this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. (reissue)
If there's anyone who could make the idea of Italian westerns and Jamaican grooves come together, it's the young Lee Scratch Perry – the mad musician who always had a great talent for mixing it up! Eastwood Rides Again follows the theme of The Upsetters previous classic, Return Of Django ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. 2LP Gatefold
The tenth edition in this really fantastic series – a collection of tunes that's moved way past the traditional funk compilations from years back – really showing the evolving taste for a groove in the global underground! The tunes here effortlessly mix together rare soul, groovy jazz, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. 12CD
A huge run of music from the legendary Dionne Warwick – all of it very different than her early work with Burt Bacharach, and brought together as a strong testament to her ability to change and grow over the years! Although Dionne started as a sweeter singer in the 60s, and had a few great ... CD

Takeo Moriyama

Green River
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984.
Drummer Takeo Moriyama is best known to our ears as one of the key forces in the trio of pianist Yosuke Yamashita in the 70s – and he definitely continues that strong legacy here, but with a vibrant voice that's all his own! The session is maybe more pitched towards the spiritual side of the ... 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

K Frimpong & Super Complex Sounds

Ahyewa Special
Ofori Brothers/Hot Casa (France), 1975. (reissue)
The sublime first album from K Frimpong – a really unique blend of hi-life and Afro Funk, but served up with all these unusual touches that make the album stand out from even most of the rest of the revolutionary sounds that were coming from Ghana at the time! There's this sense of flow that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rosario Giuliani with Joe Locke

Love In Translation
Via Veneto (Italy), 2020.
A beautiful set of ballads from saxophonist Rosario Giuliani – made even better by the vibes of Joe Locke! The tunes are all based around the theme of love – mostly standards, but a few originals too – and even when mellow, they're given a nice sort of swing by the bass of Dario ... CD
