Indaba Is
Brownswood (UK), 2021.
A fantastic overview of contemporary work from the South African scene – most of it jazz-based, and brought together here as a great discovery of underground material we never would have heard otherwise! The set follows in a similar spirit to other Brownswood label explorations of the ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2021.
The deepest, most righteous music we've ever heard from Sheree Brown – and that's saying a lot, given how much we loved her first few solo records back in the day! Brown's got this rich vision here that really makes for a hell of a record – a set of tracks inspired by her younger years ... CD

Madlib/Kieran Hebden

Sound Ancestors
Madlib Invazion, 2021.
A hell of a collaboration – core sounds by Madlib, which are then re-arranged by Kieran Hebden – at a level that seems to open up new dimensions in both artists! The sound is definitely Madlib's, but there's also a sense of majesty that seems to flow through the whole thing – ... CD
Colemine, 2021.
The future's brighter than the recent past – thanks to the spirit embraced here by the folks at Colemine Records – one of many labels who weathered the storm of 2020, and who see much brighter days ahead in the years to come! Colemine survived by stripping things down, and digitally ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
An ear-opening set of Japanese jazz from a time when that nation's scene was really taking off – a period in the 70s when all sorts of new artists and new ideas were really flying around – and leaving behind a huge recorded legacy that's been mostly out of reach for us in the west! ... CD

Voilaaa (Patchworks)

Voicii
Favorite (France), 2021.
We've loved the music of Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart in all its many forms for years – but over time, this Voilaaa project might well be our favorite – as it really gives Patchworks a way to blend past and present, while also reaching out over the space of the globe! As before, ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. 2LP Gatefold
Maybe the grooviest collection of work we've ever seen from the lovely Nancy Sinatra – a set that features some of her hits, but also includes a lot more material that's much more obscure – and which shows that Nancy was a hell of a song stylist, far from the charts! The core of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Dease

Give It All You Got
Posi tone, 2014.
Fantastic work from Michael Dease – a player who seems to get better and better with each new record, and who's clearly becoming one of the top trombonists on the planet! Dease has a dexterity here that's amazing, and an ability to hit a sense of soul that's wonderful too – a quality ... CD

Johan Lindstrom Septett

On The Asylum
Moserobie (Sweden), 2021.
A really great change in the music of Swedish guitarist Johan Lindstrom – music that expands the vision of his previous record, and also explores some more song-based territory – while still allowing for lots of musical contributions from other players we love on the Moserobie label! ... CD
Riverside/Craft, 1958. (reissue)
One of Chet Baker's most classic albums of the 50s – a record that features both vocals and strong trumpet solos – all from a time when Baker was one of the hottest things going in jazz! The album's different from records from previous years, in that it moves Baker from LA to New York ... LP, Vinyl record album
Duke University Press, 2021.
A huge book on the equally-huge creative legacy of bassist William Parker – a musician who first arose in the loft jazz scene in New York during the 70s, but who's gone on to be one of its greatest surviving players, and one who's transformed the inspirations of that world into so many ... Book
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1961.
Very rare early work from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – music composed for an Italian TV show at the start of the 60s – served up in a mix of jazz and other groovy styles! The real surprise here is that most of the tunes are vocal numbers, sometimes sung by artists you'll know from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. 3CD
Sure, you've got other Lightnin Hopkins CDs back home in your collection – but this set is will pretty darn essential – as it features a whopping 57 songs in all, including 37 unreleased tracks, and other material that's hard to find on CD! CD1 features some of Hopkins' best work of ... CD

Ennio Morricone

Senza Movemente
Quartet (Spain), 1971.
Beautifully slow-building work from Ennio Morricone – caught right at that near-perfect start of the 70s point when he was a master of understatement and spare musical elements! Many numbers begin with a sound that's often very spare – sliding out of the darkness sometimes with just a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzman (UK), 2011. Gatefold (reissue)
The debut album from Greg Foat – the first of many great records the keyboardist would soon give us, and a set that came as quite a surprise on the mostly-reissue Jazzman label! Yet the set also makes a lot of sense – as Foat is clearly inspired by some of the British greats of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fat Beats, 2021. Gatefold
A pretty fantastic chapter in the career of one of the most unique MCs to emerge in recent years – the Ukraine-born Your Old Droog, spinning out tracks here that echo the struggles of his youth as an immigrant in Brooklyn! The set's got a very freewheeling vocal style – the quick-spun ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wessel Ilcken, Tony Vos, Rob Madna, & Others

Jazz Behind The Dikes 2 (180 gram white vinyl pressing)
Philips/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1955.
A treasure trove of rare jazz work from the Dutch scene of the 50s – initially overlooked by many American listeners of the time, but fortunately well-documented by this series from Philips! The music here is a nice mix of different combos – all drawing influence from bop and some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1961. (pic cover)
Never-issued work from the Sun Ra Arkestra – and two tracks that really show just how much the initial wave of their sound tied together with other strands of postwar music! Both cuts here feature vocals from singer Ricky Murray – and as you can tell from the titles, there's a slightly ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mario Biondi

Dare
Sony (Italy), 2021.
Mario Biondi looks a bit angelic on the cover, but his vocals are still nicely down to earth – that wonderfully raspy charm that made us love his music right from the start, and which makes Mario one of the key folks to carry forward the legacy of older jazz singers like Mark Murphy or Mose ... CD
Daptone, 2021.
The Menahan Street Band are always pretty exciting to our funk-trained ears – but this time around, there seems to be a little something extra in the mix – a sound that has all these great little strange twists and turns around the edges, while still keeping all the mellow funk of the ... CD
