Lonnie Smith

Funk Reaction
LRC/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. Gatefold (reissue)
A sweet 70s groover from the great Lonnie Smith – a soulful little session that has the keyboardist really stretching out in some great ways! At the time, Smith fares a lot better than some of his late 60s jazz organ contemporaries – as he's got a great lean style, perfect for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), 2024.
A stunning volume that may well serve as the greatest introduction to Japanese jazz records we've ever seen – a huge, full-color book that features hundreds of rare Japanese-only releases, most in 12" square pages that replicate the original size of the cover too – along with label ... Book
Liberation Hall, 1975.
Cannonball Adderley left the planet all too soon during the year of 1975 – but he's still going fantastically strong in this live date from the same year – a set that maybe shows us what sort of directions that Cannon might have taken had he stuck around for another decade or two! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note (Japan), 1968.
One of our favorite Lee Morgan albums, and one of his least known – a set recorded in the crucial last five years of his life, and a sparkling mix of hard bop, soul jazz, and slight bits of modernism – that magical mix that Lee was hitting as he reached farther and farther with his ... CD

Joe McPhee with Ken Vandermark

Musings Of A Bahamian Son
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2024.
A very different side of the talents of the great Joe McPhee, and a great one too – a set of spoken word passages that are provided with occasional saxophone contributions from Ken Vandermark – all coming together in a way that's maybe even more righteous than some of the instrumental ... CD
Areito/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. (reissue)
A really sweet set of instrumental grooves – originally issued on the famous Cuban label Areito, but with a sound that's very different than you might expect! The music is funky and soulful, but also has these lush orchestrations too – so that the tunes are partly Latin, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 1960s/Early 1970s. 2CD
Four classics from this legendary Motown group – including 2 albums on CD for the first time ever! First up is What Love Has Joined Together – excellent work by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – recorded with a super-heavy vibe that's very different than his sweeter 60s work! ... CD
Tribute/Liberation Hall, 1969. (reissue)
A damn funky record from Dizzy Gillespie – not the bebop of his early years, nor the longer Latiny tracks of the 60s – but instead this great set of short, tight instrumentals that are all arranged by funky genius Ed Bland, then topped with some wicked solos from Dizz! The group also ... LP, Vinyl record album
TK/Big Break (UK), 1972.
A landmark album from Timmy Thomas – one that mixes together electronics and soul in this wonderfully unique mellow groove – a style that's hardly ever been matched again, and which may well put this album at the same level as Shuggie Otis' classic Inspiration Information set! Timmy's ... CD

Christer Bothen

Trancedance
Organic Music/Black Truffle (Austria), 1984. (reissue)
A really heady set of globally-influenced jazz – music that has some fusion energy at the core, but which is expanded with all sorts of great percussion and horns – the latter of which hang nicely between jazz and styles that almost have a West African sort of vibe! The album's very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Josh Lawrence

Measured Response
Posi-Tone, 2024.
Trumpeter Josh Lawrence has a nicely measured sound on his horn – a tight sense of tone and phrasing, with a care of delivery that maybe hearkens back to Art Farmer at his best – which is a hell of a compliment from us! Josh is always holding a touch of energy in reserve – not ... CD

Finn Rees

Dawn Is A Melody
Mr Bongo (UK), 2024. 2LP
Keyboardist Finn Rees works here in a really cool blend of spiritual jazz elements and warmer, more soulful touches – mixing his own work on Fender Rhodes, piano, and other keyboards with some acoustic elements that create a wonderfully swirling, searching sort of groove! The album's a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Acid Jazz (UK), 2024.
Sean Khan's given us some more groove-oriented music in the past – but here, the saxophonist has this great way of laying back into more of the jazz-based energy of his work – blowing soprano and flute in a tight combo that blend the jazzy currents in the music with some of the folk ... CD
Red Hook, 2024.
One of the most beautiful albums from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith in years – a set that's different than both his larger concept records, and some of his more freewheeling improvisational outings – as the whole thing is a spare, almost poetic set of duets with pianist Amina Claudine ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 1940s/1950s/Early 1960s. 7CD
One of the coolest collections of work related to Ray Charles that we've ever seen – a huge box that brings together both some of the music that inspired Ray, then his own recordings, then tracks that he did that inspired other artists too! The first four CDs feature work from a generation ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 1950s/1960s/1970s. 2CDs
A huge run of music that comes together as a secret history of sounds within pop music in the UK and US scenes in the 50s, 60s, and 70s – all hand-picked by writer Jon Savage to accompany his book of the same name! There's some work here that might be what you'd expect – tracks that ... CD
Studio 16 (UK), 1975.
Trombonist Vin Gordon makes a really strong appearance here – blowing these wicked solos with backings recorded at Black Ark – all in a heady style that shows why he was maybe the greatest player on his instrument in the Jamaican scene! Vin uses the trombone to do all these cool things ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harold Land

Choma (Burn)
Mainstream/We Want Sounds (UK), 1970. Gatefold (reissue)
One of the hippest albums ever from the team of Harold Land and Bobby Hutcherson – and a set that's even more open than some of their other records on Blue Note or Chess! This set's a bit more electric than some of the other records from the pair – with these drawn-out Fender Rhodes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ru-Jac/Omnivore, Late 1970s.
One of the leading lights of the Munich club scene – the mighty Silver Convention, who topped the charts with a number of disco classics in the mid 70s! Silver Convention took the Philly female style of disco – popularized by First Choice, Three Degrees, and others – and pumped ... CD

Jin Ono

Light
Kakuba Rhythm (Japan), 2024.
A record with an AOR-styled cover, but a groove that's much more stripped-down overall – lean and soulful, and with a mixture of Fender Rhodes, other keyboards, and spare Maestro Rhythm King grooves – all topped with these easygoing vocals from Jin Ono! Given the use of the drum ... LP, Vinyl record album
