Camilla George

Ibio Ibio
Ever (UK), 2022.
Not the first album from saxophonist Camilla George, but the set where it really feels like she's found her voice in music – weaving together her own strong solo on alto sax with the work of a top-shelf array of players from the London scene, while also nodding towards her roots in the Ibibio ... CD

Sault

Air
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2022.
Maybe the most powerful album we've ever heard from Sault – and a record that's unlike anything else they've given us before! The set has Sault rising into the righteous heavens – almost like the way that certain artists were elevated by the power of the Cadet/Concept late 60s years in ... CD

Boris Gardiner

Ultra Super Dub Vol 1
Ultra/Now Again, Mid 70s.
Some of the deepest work we've ever heard from Jamaican funk giant Boris Gardiner – and a set that might have been called "Ultra Rare Dub" instead – given the obscurity of the recordings! The core material here is from 45s that Boris issues in the early 70s – the kind ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Tapscott

Horace Tapscott Quintet
Flying Dutchman/Mr Bongo (UK), 1969.
Never-heard music from the great Horace Tapscott – rare material that was recorded for the Flying Dutchman label at the end of the 60s, but never issued at the time! The Tapscott here is at his soaring, spiritual best – filled with a new sense of energy and exploration, as he guides a ... CD
Blue Thumb/Big Pink (South Korea), 1972.
One of the greatest solo albums ever issued by Latin jazz trumpeter Luis Gasca – a set that really expands on his debut for Atlantic Records, and which brings in a whole host of early 70s west coast Latin influences! The style here is very laidback and open – a bit like some of the ... CD

William Parker

Universal Tonality
Centering, 2002. 2CDs
A majestic large group performance from bassist William Parker – one that was recorded near the start of the century, and with a large lineup that mixes jazz luminaries with up and coming musicians, and spiritual sounds with global elements – all at level that makes the album one of ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2022.
The love here is in the music – a really warm, wonderful blend of tracks in a variety of styles – all coming together in the sunny spirit hinted at by the cover! It's a bit hard to sum up the genius of the set in words – as Miche takes vintage soul, Latin, Brazilian, and other ... CD
Savant, 2022.
Maybe one of the most unique efforts in the "Latin Side" series from trombonist Conrad Herwig – as the combination of Latin rhythms and the music of Charles Mingus isn't one that we can easily imagine – yet one that sounds really wonderful as things come together on the album! ... CD

AB Spellman, Larry Neal, & Amiri Baraka, eds

Cricket – Black Music In Evolution 1968/1969
Jihad/Blank Forms, 2022.
A beautiful recreation of this legendary and short-lived publication – a key voice from the black underground of the late 60s – and one that was a very different look at jazz than the mainstream world of Downbeat! Amiri Baraka was one of the founders and editors, and issued the ... Book

Gregory Tardy

Sufficient Grace
WJ3, 2022.
There's way more than sufficient grace going on here – and a strongly soulful swing that really has the whole album coming together, right on the money! Maybe that's no surprise, though, given that the set's issued on the excellent WJ3 label from Willie Jones III, who plays drums at the core ... CD

Alan Skidmore/Mike Osborne/John Surman

SOS
Ogun (UK), 1975.
One of our favorite sides of the British avant scene in the 70s – a body of work that's out, but never too out – soaring on spiritual wings one moment, and working in playful blocks of sound the next! All three artists play saxes on the album – tenor for Akan Skidmore, alto for ... CD

Makaya McCraven

In These Times
International Anthem/Nonesuch, 2022.
Maybe the most majestic album that Makaya McCraven has recorded to date – and that's really saying a lot, given the power of his music on previous records! This time around, the group is large, and the performance is more organic than some of the more mixed/produced sessions that Makaya has ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s.
That's a young Isaac Hayes on the cover, sitting at the piano next to David Porter – his key songwriting partner at Stax Records in the 60s – at a time before both artists had gone onto their own solo recordings for the label! The Hayes/Porter team gave Stax some of their best songs ... CD
Duke University Press, 2022.
The birth of hip hop on the streets and in the clubs of New York City has been well documented over the years – but once the music got going, the airwaves of the city were an equally important force in spreading the music – and this well-done book is the first time that anyone's really ... Book

Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari

Grounation
New Dimension/Soul Jazz (UK), 1972. 2CD
An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time! The vibe here is really rootsy, and almost more spiritual jazz than reggae – with lots of spare percussion from Count ... CD

Wayne Davis

Wayne Davis
Black Fire/Strut (UK), 1976. (reissue)
A wonderful soul album on the Black Fire label – a hip 70s imprint best known for spiritual jazz – stepping out here on a record that has a lot more vocals than their other releases, but which makes for a mighty nice fit! Wayne Davis is wonderful here – singing with the warmth of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hareton Salvanini

Xavana Uma Ilha Do Amor
Mad About Records (Portugal), Late 70s.
A sexy soundtrack from 70s Brazil, but one that also works beautifully as a vocal set too! Hareton Salvanini wrote and produced the album, but he also sings on a number of the tracks too – in this great laidback style that's maybe a bit like Lo Borges at times, and which comes as a real ... CD
Blue Note, 2022. Gatefold
Maybe the most spiritual of the three albums recorded as part of the great Trios project from reedman Charles Lloyd – a set that was recorded at the legendary Lobero theater in Santa Barbara, but without an audience in place – which makes for a beautiful mix of wide space and intimate ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ernest Ranglin

Be What You Want To Be
Konduko/ERC (UK), 1983. (reissue)
A killer blend of soulful elements – the guitar of Jamaican legend Ernest Ranglin and the warmly grooving sound of the Miami scene – served up here with some mighty nice help from King Sporty in the studio! Despite the date of the recording, there's a vibe here that's a lot more like ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC/Sundazed, 1968. (reissue)
One of those really unusual, almost unlikely albums that were issued by the ABC label at the end of the 60s – the kind of record that shouldn't have gotten such exposure on such a big label, which meant that it was promptly ignored in terms of promotion – yet somehow went on to become ... LP, Vinyl record album
