Fania/Craft, 1972. (reissue)
A great Ray Barretto album from 1972 – one that beautifully showcases the master percussionist as he effortlessly shifts between Latin soul and 70's salsa styles! The group's nice and lean – with Adalberto Santiago on vocals, Papy Roman on trumpet, Louis Cruz on piano, and the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joel Ross

Who Are You
Blue Note, 2020.
Beautiful work from vibist Joel Ross – a player who's just starting to blossom as a leader, and who's clearly on the right path! The sound is wonderfully rich – not just vibes from Ross, but especially nice work from bassist Kanoa Mendenhall, who's a really key part of the sound here ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 2000s/2010s.
An excellent collection of Neo Soul gems – the kind of standout cuts that have made the movement such an important part of modern music over the past 20 years – a continuing evolution of classic soul styles, at a level you'll never find in the chartbound mainstream! These aren't ... CD

Isao Suzuki

All Right
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1974.
Groovy electric work – in a style that's both funky and swinging, with many different strands and styles running through at once! Isao Suzuki plays electric piano, Hammond organ, vibes, and cello – a great mix of instruments that come off surprisingly well in his hands – ... CD
Stax/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1960s. 4CD
A long-overdue collection of the wealth of work that Carla Thomas did for Stax Records in the 60s – the wonderfully rich first section of her career, when the label was working in strong partnership with Atlantic Records! Carla's the daughter of Memphis soul legend Rufus Thomas – who ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 2020. 2CD
A glittering constellation of groundbreaking jazz from the contemporary UK scene – a world of jazz that's changed dramatically over the past decade or so, with huge new advances in sound and styles in a range of different directions! The changes going on are a bit like some of those that ... CD

Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media

Funky Stuff
Columbia (Japan), 1974. (reissue)
Funky fusion from 70s Japan – a really great set that's heavy both on Fender Rhodes, and on a range of choppy reed lines on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The set's got a warm glow that's perfect for the CTI generation – with an equally apt sense of space, one that keeps the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1972.
An unusual little session from early 70s Japan – one that features some jazz vocals from Shigeko Toya, but also a fair bit of piano as well – set alongside backing from the trio of Masaru Imada, who plays organ on the numbers that don't feature Toya on the piano! If that sounds ... CD
Hires Hits/Craftman (Japan), 1963.
One of Blossom Dearie's hippest albums – done in that lightly grooving style that makes her 60s work some of our favorite! The style is groovier than Dearie's already-great work on Verve – a bit in the mode of her Capitol Recordings, and some of her British 60s gems from overseas ... CD

James Brandon Lewis

Molecular
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020.
Saxophonist James Brandon Lewis just keeps getting deeper and deeper with each new release – very different than the artist who first emerged a number of records back, and one with a strong ability to explore the farther sides of the jazz spectrum! That's definitely the case here – as ... CD
RCA/Kent (UK), 1966.
The long-overdue release of the complete RCA recordings of Kenny Carter – a hell of a singer who should have been huge, but who only saw a few tracks issues as singles back in the day! This set corrects that fact, and brings together 22 titles that Kenny recorded for RCA – magnificent ... CD

Beastie Boys

Beastie Boys Music
Capitol, 1980s/1990s/2000s.
A career-spanning set of work from the Beastie Boys – one that features tracks from both their Def Jam and Capitol/Grand Royal years – in a way that really shows the continuing evolution of their sound! The tracklist is great – classics from every generation, and the kind of cuts ... CD

Tim Berne's Snakeoil

Deceptive 4
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. 2CD
There's nothing deceptive about this quartet – as the group work here live, completely unfettered – with the kind of honest, open interaction that have made Snakeoil one of the greatest musical contributions from reedman Tim Berne! The lineup has a special sort of edge – no bass, ... CD

Christopher Parker & Kelly Hurt with Brian Blade

No Tears Suite
Mahakala, 2020.
A fantastic project dedicated to the legendary Brown V Board Of Education moment in the Civil Rights Movement – a suite of tracks recorded in Little Rock, home of the original moment of integration – with music by pianist Christopher Parker, and songs and recitations from Kelly Hurt! ... CD
Pye/BGO (UK), Late 60s. 2CD
Four classic albums from this hip British soul group – issued here in a single set, with bonus tracks too! First up is New Religion – a record that was also released in America by Atlantic Records. Although they were a UK soul act, Jimmy James and The Vagabonds were a perfect match ... CD

Don Cherry

Om Shanti Om
Black Sweat (Italy), 1976.
Rare 70s work from Don Cherry, and one of the most perfect realizations of his organic music concept – a quartet session recorded for Italian broadcast, with long songs that have a very spun-out, meditative vibe! Cherry's on pocket trumpet, but is way more than a horn player – as his ... CD
Anagram, 1965. 2LP Gatefold
Amazing music from Jimmy Giuffre – and a much-needed document of this under-recorded time in his career! The 2CD set brings together two different live performances – each done two years after his groundbreaking Free Fall album for Columbia, and with a sound that's even more far-reachin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Bad Boys Of Jazz
Pheelco, 2020. 2LP
We're not sure if we'd call these guys "bad boys" – but we certainly love them to death, and their music only seems to get better and better with each new release! The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble first hit our ears over a decade back – first from attention they were getting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Brother, 2020.
A backward step from the second 80 Blocks From Tiffany's project – one that shows just how strong Pete Rock remains as a producer over the years – and how great the rock-solid rhythms of his work can be, even without any vocals! Pete first helped set the tone for a generation 25 years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sonor (Italy), 1972. (reissue)
If you can forgive the title of this one, you'll find it to be a very groovy record! The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album
