Daptone, 2021.
Bold rays of sunlight from Orquesta Akokan – a contemporary group, but one who recorded this set in Havana's legendary Egrem Studios – which is part of the very classic vibe throughout! There's plenty of younger Latin combos that have been serving up old school modes in recent years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liuto/Dialogo (Italy), 1976.
A hip set of swinging urban tunes – recorded by Piero Umiliani in 1976, in a mode that recalls American "urban" jazz tributes from the 50s and 60s – especially some of the albums that were dedicated to New York! Yet the difference here is that he session's got a bit of a 70s ... CD
Stack O Hits/P-Vine (Japan), 1976/1981. (reissue)
A killer little soul group who recorded with John "Monster" Davis in the mid 70s – really soaring with a groove that rivals some of their bigger contemporaries on the east coast group scene! Touch Of Class sing in a style that's sometimes fragile, but often more suited to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sault

9
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2021.
Fantastic music from Sault – a record that explodes way past some of their previous releases, and really shows the group evolving in their sound – even if they are still keeping their cover art in the same very understated territory! There's a sense of urgency as the album begins ... CD

Piero Umiliani (Rovi)

Pianofender Blues
Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975.
A great set of keyboard work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – and one that's definitely heavy on the Fender Rhodes promised in the title! Piero first started out with a more jazz-based sound in the 60s, and that definitely returns here – but updated nicely with a sweet set of 70s ... CD

Whit Dickey/William Parker/Matthew Shipp

Village Mothership
Tao Forms, 2021.
That's a pretty enticing title, and the record's got a pretty enticing sound as well – fantastic long-spun lines from the trio of Matthew Shipp on piano, William Parker on bass, and Whit Dickey on drums – all players with a long history together, and a perfectly-matched sound on the ... CD

Takeru Muraoka

Takeru
Philips/Superfly (Japan), 1970. Gatefold (reissue)
A really landmark album from the Japanese scene at the start of the 70s – one of the key records in which musicians like Takeru Muraoka were helping to discover something new and unique – a fantastic hybrid of modal jazz, freer solo moments, and some nice electric touches on keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mamba/VP, 1974.
A once lost gem! Hudson's voice as a producer remains one of the most unique and idiosyncratic of his era, and this first LP issued under his own name stands as a shining document of his genius. Cut very near the time of his classic dub side Pick A Dub, this album shares the haunting mood that ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), Late 60s/1970s. 2CD
A pretty incredible legacy of jazz from the scene in Belgium during the late 60s and early 70s – a place that never got the kind of exposure as the jazz worlds of the UK, Scandinavia, and Germany – but one that was making some really amazing work at the time! Take the "progressive& ... CD
Now Again, 2021.
A whole new side of funky genius for Karl Hector – aka JJ Whitefield, of Poets Of Rhythm fame – a set that takes off from his previous Afro Funk albums with The Macouns, but which has an even more stripped-down vibe overall! The group is just a trio – with Ebo Taylor's son Henry, ... CD

Masabumi Kikuchi

End For The Beginning
Philips/Superfly (Japan), 1973. (reissue)
One of the most soulful sessions we've ever heard from Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi – a brilliant quintet outing that features some really great work on tenor and soprano sax! Kikuchi's piano is usually enough to grab our attention, but the album's got a great added bonus in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Old Maid/Ilegalia, 2021.
A sweet little 10" album from the Du-Rites – just a duo, but one who manage to serve up just as much funk as a much larger group! In truth, this time around the pair have a few guest vocalists – although most of the tracks are still instrumentals, with the familiar blend of heavy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirale

Spirale
Dialogo (Italy), 1974. Gatefold (reissue)
A hell of a record from the Italian scene of the 70s – a heavy set of electric jazz with a soaring, righteous sort of vibe – served up by a quintet who somehow manage to work as if they've got the spirit of a much larger ensemble! We don't know any of the players at all from other ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), 1981. 3CD
A huge slice of work from a crucial year in electronic music – all tracks from 1981, a time when the experiments of the 70s were giving way to more tuneful recordings of the 80s – at a level that would soon dominate the world of pop around the globe! Yet although some of these artists ... CD
Flirt/Holy Basil, 1972. (reissue)
One of those very cool Italian sound library albums that sits at a perfect space between funk and psychedelia – filled with tracks that are as heavy on fuzz as they are on drums – all instrumental throughout, and with a style that's sure to please folks on both sides of the fence! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Umiliani

Polinesia
Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975.
A mystical trip through the south seas – courtesy of Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani, working here in a rare sound library setting! The tracks are moody and ethereal – with lots of spare percussion, and some dreamy island-type touches – like floating voices, isolated ... CD

TP Orchestra Poly Rythmo De Cotonou

Le Sato
Albarika Store/Acid Jazz (UK), 1974.
Stunning early work from the Orchestra Poly Rhythmo – a set that's titled after a set of rhythms used in voodoo rituals in Benin – echoed here strongly by the heavy use of percussion on the record, which includes a giant drum reserved for use only in ritual performance! The sound is ... CD

Francois De Roubaix

Le Samourai
Universal (France), 1967.
One of the darkest soundtracks ever from the wonderful Francois De Roubaix – a moody, brooding score that really fits the solitary spirit of the main character! There's still plenty of those cool De Roubaix elements in the mix – even some weird melodies on organ and electronics – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Garrick

New Serious Music
Rhythm & Blues (UK), Late 60s.
Two slices of rare work from the legendary British pianist Michael Garrick – one of the key forces driving the sound of jazz forward in the 60s, as you'll hear on this set! First up is a 1967 performance for the BBC Jazz Club – with a sextet that features wonderful work on cornet from ... CD

Web Web

Web Max
Compost (Germany), 2021.
Web Web have really deepened up their sound here – much more spiritual than we ever would have expected before – but maybe no surprise, given that the record features guest work from giants like Charles Tolliver, Mulatu, and Brandee Younger! The core group features lots of great flute ... CD
