Steeplechase (Denmark), 2021.
The music of John Coltrane, but served up here with a very different voice – that of tenorist Gabor Bolla, whose captured here at an early point in his career, with a sound that's more than bold enough for the material – but also very much all his own! Kirk Lightsey leads the group, ... CD

John Berberian & The Middle Eastern Ensemble

Middle Eastern Rock
Verve/Modern Harmonic, 1969.
Don't think "rock", think "groove" – because oud player John Berberian takes his instrument into some very groovy territory here – mixing its Mid-East roots with a sweet array of modal rhythms and psychedelic elements – all of which make for an album that's ... CD
Mosaic, Late 40s/1950s/1960s. 6CD
An incredible collection of music from the great pianist Lennie Tristano – and maybe the first-ever set to truly get at the range of genius he could express on the piano! Given that Tristano only made a small amount of records during his too-short career, yet also left a major impact on the ... CD

Kosuke Mine

Mine
Three Blind Mice/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1970. (reissue)
Early work from this tremendous Japanese saxophonist – working here on both alto and soprano sax, in styles that are sharply angular, but also quite warm and soulful! Kosuke Mine's got a quality that's a bit like Joe Henderson at the same time – obviously informed by earlier hardbop, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tubby Hayes

Complete Hopbine '69
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1969. 2CD
There's been a number of live performances by tenor great Tubby Hayes at the Hopbine club over the years – but this is the first-ever appearance of this 1969 concert – a great addition to Tubby's too-small catalog in these later years! The tracks are long and extremely vibrant – ... CD
Gallo/Tidal Waves, 1977. (reissue)
A beautiful 70s album from Harari – a South African group who already had a long legacy in music before this set, and who really seem to come together with a style that's even more sophisticated than some of their previous albums! The cover might make the record look a bit disco, but there's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Larry Douglas Alltet

Dedications (180 gram pressing)
Swajola/Tidal Waves, 1984. (reissue)
A rare bit of indie jazz from the Bay Area scene of the 80s – but put together with a groove that's much more 70s overall! The group's headed by trumpeter Larry Douglas, and has a soaring, soulful groove that definitely owes a lot to the spiritual sound on labels like Strata East or Black ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mankunku Quartet

Yakhal Inkomo
Mr Bongo (UK), 1968.
A real treasure from the South African scene of the 60s – and the kind of record that we thought wasn't being made until the following decade! Tenorist Winston Mankunku Ngozi rivals the genius of Coltrane and Wayne Shorter here – both artists to whom he dedicates a key track on the ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2022. 3CD
Plenty of luxury, and plenty of soul – as you'll be living like a king with this well-priced set – a massive batch of music in one 3CD collection, and a heck of a lot more enjoyable than trawling the internet for underground soul songs you might have missed! This long-running series ... CD

New York Contemporary Five

Copenhagen 1963 Revisited
Hat Art (Switzerland), 1963.
Incredible work from one of the greatest groups of the New York avant scene of the 60s – the legendary New York Contemporary Five, a combo that features Archie Shepp on tenor, John Tchicai on alto, Don Cherry on cornet, Don Moore on bass, and JC Moses on drums! This 1963 recording, ... CD
Luv N' Haight, 2022. (pic cover)
Beautiful late life work from Gloria Ann Taylor – the soul singer best known for her rare work of the 70s, but heard here in a trio of tracks that are new – and completely wonderful! Funky soul maestro Misha Panfilov handled the arrangements and production – and Gloria plays ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Luke Stewart's Silt Trio

Bottom
Cuneiform, 2022.
Bassist Luke Stewart is fast becoming one of our favorite talents on his instrument in recent years – an artist who first grabbed our ears with his work in Irreversible Entanglements, but who seems even better suited to stand out front as a leader! The performance of the trio here is ... CD
We Want Sounds (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s.
Beautiful grooves from the Japanese scene – most of them from a time when its singers and musicians were leaning heavily on influences from American funk and soul, and turning out some wonderful music of their own! Lyrics on most tracks are in Japanese, but there's a really universal vibe to ... CD
Impulse, 1961. Gatefold (reissue)
Sublimely spiritual work from the great John Coltrane – a live album, but one that's easily one of his most important contributions to music in the early 60s – and a set that we'd rank right up there with his best studio sides for Impulse or Atlantic Records at the time! The group here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Abdullah Ibrahim

Solotude (180 gram pressing)
Gearbox (UK), 2002.
Beautiful solo work from pianist Abdullah Ibrahim – a player with a sound so rich and rhythmic, his sessions like this are often every bit as captivating as his trio and group recordings! There's a really special sort of poetry going on here – first in the way that Ibrahim brings out ... LP, Vinyl record album
We Are Busy Bodies (UK), 1976. (reissue)
Really fantastic grooves from this legendary Congolese combo – a group who've got a different spin than some of their 70s contemporaries, given the way the use lots of organ lines next to the percussion on the songs! The instrument often gets this melodic flow going with the rhythms – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Strawberry (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. 3CD
A pair of records from UK vocal group Arrival – plus rare BBC material too! First up is the record Arrival from 1970 – a really wonderful record from this very cool UK group – a mix of gals and guys who harmonize together in a really great way – very different than a lineup ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), 1968.
A pair of late 60s classics for Blue Note – back to back on a single CD! First up is New York Is Now – a pretty bold statement from saxophonist Ornette Coleman, but one that definitely shows his shift in role – from a major force on the LA underground of the early 60s, to an ... CD
Mercury/Big Pink (South Korea), Late 60s. Gatefold
A really fantastic album from drummer Buddy Miles – an artist that many folks know for his key rock work in the Band Of Gypsys group of Jimi Hendrix, but a musician with an equally great ear for soul and funk as well! Miles began in Electric Flag, and certainly has ties to the world of psych ... CD

Salah Ragab & The Cairo Jazz Band

Egypt Strut
Strut (UK), 1974. (reissue)
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band – work done by the percussionist who'd also worked with Sun Ra, but who's even more amazing here on his own! As you can probably guess from their name, the ensemble was an Egyptian one ... LP, Vinyl record album
