Jef Gilson with Nathan Davis & Woody Shaw

Jef Gilson A Gaveau (180 gram pressing)
SFP/SAM (France), 1965. (reissue)
A brilliant record from French modernist Jef Gilson – and a set that's filled with amazing performances from a host of key French and American players too! At the core is Gilson – writing, directing, and playing piano in the ensemble – which also features trumpets from Woody Shaw ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cairo/Mississippi, 1960s. 2LP
A stunning package of rare and classic soul – very much in the spirit of the other titles on the Cairo imprint, and put together with a huge booklet of notes and images, and a great cover to boot! The approach here is nicely focused, despite the large date range – and most of the music ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Tolliver

Connect
Gearbox (UK), 2020.
A stunner of a set from legendary trumpeter Charles Tolliver – and a record that shows that he's lost none of his brilliance since the years of his 70s recordings for the Strata East label! The format here is a bit like those – long tracks by a small group, with an outward appearance ... CD

Manfredo Fest

Brazilian Dorian Dream
T&M/Far Out (UK), 1976.
A sublime little set – quite possibly the greatest album ever from Brazilian keyboardist Manfredo Fest! Manfredo first cut his teeth on the bossa scene of the 60s – but by the time of this rare indie session, he'd moved up to the US – and was working with sweet keyboards to ... CD
SAM (France), 1965.
One of the most unusual recordings we've ever heard from legendary drummer Art Blakey – not a Jazz Messengers session, but a rare Parisian performance by a quintet billed as the New Jazz Men! The lineup is fantastic – Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Nathan Davis on tenor, Jaki Byard on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Various

Nu Leaf
Numero, Mid 80s.
A really unusual idea for a compilation – but the sort that we've really come to appreciate from the folks at Numero Group! The package traces a shift in American independent jazz during the 80s – following the sorts of players who might have played spiritual jazz or rock-oriented ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio Adolfo

Viralata
Artezanal/Far Out (UK), 1979. (reissue)
Fantastic stuff – and one of the greatest records ever by Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! The album was recorded at the end of the 70s, and has a sound that's a lot like the best fusion work by Azymuth – a great mix of jazz and funk, plus more dynamic Brazilian elements – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1967. CD & DVD
Groovy sounds for a somewhat creepy film – an obscure 1967 exploitation documentary about the underground hippie sex scene in San Francisco! The record is almost like a mini-movie in sound – in that it features a narrator describing various scenes in the city's underground, while ... CD

Horace Tapscott & The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra

Why Don't You Listen – Live At LACMA 1998 (180 gram pressing)
Dark Tree (France), 1998.
An amazing record from pianist Horace Tapscott – maybe one of his most ambitious projects ever, and a set that stands head and shoulders next to his classic work for the Nimbus label! As with some of those records, this set features his large Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra – performing ... 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

Theotis Taylor

Brother Theotis Taylor
Mississippi, Mid 70s.
Rare material from Georgia singer Brother Theotis Taylor – one of those unique southern talents who work in a stripped-down mode that's equal parts gospel and blues – maybe more blues in structure, but definitely with a deeper spirit in the message! Taylor only issued a handful of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jaga Jazzist

Pyramid
Brainfeeder, 2020.
Jaga Jazzist have always had a somewhat spiritual sounding name, but this album might be the first to really deliver on that promise – a set of long tracks that unfold openly in a mix of electronic elements and more jazz-based touches – tunes that really take the right amount of time ... CD

Ceu

Apka
Six Degrees, 2020.
Ceu seems to be an even stronger singer here than before – still able to drift in and out of an easygoing rhythm when she wants, but also more suited to take on tunes with a more soulful vibe – which includes a number of standout tunes that really make the record shine! There's still ... CD
Shipwrecked, 2020.
Chris Connelly is a hell of a singer – a man with a god-like voice that we'd rank right up there next to David Bowie and Scott Walker – and we're sometimes so entranced by the sound of his voice that we actually forget to listen to the lyrics of his songs, which are equally great! This ... Book
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s.
Great garagey work from The Bushmen – a mid 60s combo from Fresno, CA – and one who reveled in the best gritty modes of the time! The vocals are stark, the rhythms are too, and there's some great swirling organ lines in there amidst all the guitar – a garage/psych blend at times, ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965/1975.
A compelling split album – both a performance by and a tribute to the legendary tenorist Booker Ervin – issued after his death, but also featuring a rare European performance from the 60s as well! The album features one long track by Booker – "Blues For You" – ... 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
