Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s.
A fantastic collection of rare funky nuggets – put together by the folks at the Numero Group, and an album that's billed as "the only funk album you'll ever need"! That might be a big claim, but the record is pretty darn great – a set that features a few older underground ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey

Just Coolin
Blue Note, 1959.
The long-overdue release of an unissued Blue Note session from 1959 – one that features a version of the Jazz Messengers right before Wayne Shorter joined the group, with the mighty Hank Mobley on the quintet lineup on tenor! The Messengers in 1959 and 1960 were really at the top of their ... CD
Atlantic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1960s. 5CD
A fantastic collection of work from the legendary Esther Phillips – one of the most distinct voices in soul music, captured here during some key moments in her career! The box is huge – and begins with a full CD of tracks from Esther's initial years on Lenox Records – a label ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1978. 3CD
The title's maybe a bit misleading – as most folks think of day-glo as a color associated with some of the most throwaway culture of the 80s – but the brightness of the hue definitely marks the big explosion in styles during the key British year of 1978 – a time when the punk ... CD

Continental 4

Dream World
Jay Walking/Essential, 1972.
Amazing! This album is one of the great lost classics of East Coast harmony soul of the 70s – and it always leaves us breathless! Continental 4 may not have been as big as some of their contemporaries, but the cut "(You're Living In) A Dream World" is one of the most sublime soul ... CD

Mal Waldron

Touch Of The Blues
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972.
There's maybe a touch of the blues here – but the results, as usual for Mal Waldron, are completely different overall – which makes for a really magical moment from a time that was a real creative high point in Waldron's career! All tracks are long originals by Mal – played with ... CD
Third Man, 1970.
The original Stooges, captured here live at the Goose Lake Festival in 1970 – an event that was the midwest answer to Woodstock – and which sported some performances that were equally the stuff of legend! This set definitely falls into that category – as it not only features the ... CD
Ace/Kent (UK), Mid 60s.
A huge collection of rare blues material from west coast powerhouse label Kent/Modern Records – a really important indie during the postwar R&B scene in LA, still going strong here well into the 60s! Modern was a real pioneer in recording electrified blues during the 50s – maybe ... CD

Boillat Therace Quintet

Boillat Therace Quintet
PMP/We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1974. (reissue)
One of those great European jazz records that never fully got its due back in the 70s – but which would have stood right next to classics on the Black Jazz label, if it were issued in the US! The group here are wonderfully soulful, and have a fluid, open sort of energy – never avant, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Albert Mangelsdorff & Lee Konitz

Art Of The Duo
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1983.
A fantastic showcase for these two modern jazz giants – sublime trombone sounds from Albert Mangelsdorff, perfectly paired with the alto sax of Lee Konitz – all at a level that makes the album one of the best from both players at the time! The session was actually a late MPS effort, ... CD

Yosuke Yamashita & Hozan Yamamoto

Bolero
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. 2CD
Two of the most creative talents in Japanese jazz – coming together here wonderfully on a double-length set of duets from the 80s! Pianist Yosuke Yamashita is maybe the better-known of the two – a fierce, free improviser who was maybe Japan's answer to Cecil Taylor in the 70s – ... CD

Dollar Brand

African Sketchbook
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969.
Spare, solo, and incredibly haunting work from Dollar Brand – recorded in Germany in 1969, and featuring Brand on both flute and piano, playing a set of 14 original compositions designed to provide small sketches of his African homeland. The mood of the work is less sprightly than some of ... CD
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1973.
A sexy little film, with a sexy little soundtrack to match – just the right blend of funk and crime modes you'd expect for a movie that was a precursor to Charlie's Angels! The Doll Squad were a lot trashier, though – and it really shows in some of the music here, which has a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Run Out Groove, Late 60s/Early 70s.
A killer collection of Barbara Lynn's records for Atlantic – a set that includes many of her 45-only tracks, which weren't on her full album for the label – plus one song that was only first issued in recent years! Lynn's a real standout in 60s soul music – a singer with a style ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2020.
A really fantastic idea for a project – and one that comes off even better than we would have guessed – new versions of classic grooves from the nations of Cabo Verde and Guinea Bissau, performed by a really well-matched group of singers and musicians, in a mode that's quite different ... CD

Justo Almario

Interlude
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. (reissue)
The greatest album ever from reedman Justo Almario – and one of the most obscure sets to ever come out on the Uno Melodic label of Roy Ayers! Roy Ayers produced the whole thing, and handled arrangements with Justo – and the whole thing feels a lot like a jazzy instrumental take on Roy's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1968. 2CD
A sublime album from the great Bobbie Gentry – and maybe her strongest full-length set recorded during the classic Capitol years! The title's "sweete" is a hillbilly play on the word "suite" – and the album definitely works as an extended suite of tracks – ... CD
Happy Day/Pepite (France), 1980. (reissue)
A rare boogie number from Chicago – presented here both in the original version, and a new edit! The tune's got a warmly captivating vibe – a smooth groove at the core, and these raspy vocals from Frank that are very different than the usual – as is the lyric, which is nicely ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Saturn/Modern Harmonic, 1982.
An obscure session from Sun Ra and the Arkestra, and a great one too – a set that's maybe a bit different than some of their other material from the time! The album's from the early 80s, but maybe feels a bit more like the group in the late 50s – when they were in Chicago, and first ... CD

Boillat Therace Quintet with Benny Bailey

My Greatest Love
M Records/We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1974. (reissue)
A gem of a record from this fantastic French group – and one that also features superb guest work from trumpeter Benny Bailey, at a time when he was at the most righteous apex of his talents! The core group is lead by Jean Francois Boillat on Fender Rhodes and piano, and Raymond Therace on ... LP, Vinyl record album
