Blue Note, 1966. Gatefold (reissue)
Genius work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – one of his most solid sides as a leader from the 60s, and a well-deserved treasure in the Blue Note catalog! The album's quite different than the straight soul jazz of Blue's early days on Riverside – or the more arranged dates of the late 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Materiali Sonori/Spittle (Italy), Early 80s.
A great little set that takes off nicely from the classic Fuzz Dance work of Alexander Robotnick – a set that features some of his contemporaries on the Italian label of the same name, plus one of Alexander's own cuts too! The music here is great – early electro club, at a level that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joyce

Natureza
Far Out (UK), 1977.
A record that could have been the biggest breakthrough in the career of the legendary Joyce – yet the set was never issued at the time! The late 70s session has Joyce recording in New York, under the guidance of studio maestro Claus Ogerman – who has a wonderful way of elevating the ... CD
Westbound/Big Pink (South Korea), 1977.
A soaring set from the later years of Detroit funk powerhouse Westbound Records – a record that has the label moving into clubbier territory, but with all the sharpness they brought to their earlier releases! Detroit producers Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey are at the helm of the record ... CD

Bruno Spoerri

Der Wurger Vom Towe
Finders Keepers (UK), 1966.
One of the most striking records we've ever heard from Swiss music legend Bruno Spoerri – a set that's very different from both his straight jazz recordings and his more experimental work – and instead a soundtrack for an obscure 60s film about a strangler in London! There's definitely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazz Detective, Mid 60s. 2CD
Really fantastic music from pianist Ahmad Jamal – a set of tracks that's a really nice change from some of the recordings he was doing for Chess Records in the early 60s, and which definitely point the way towards the more stretched-out performances to come on Impulse Records! As the title ... CD
Jazz Detective, Mid 60s. 2CD
Piano genius Ahmad Jamal is really taking off here – letting his solos stretch out and his impeccable sense of timing really move things forward from his studio sides of the time – allowed plenty of freedom in the space of the Penthouse nightclub in Seattle during the mid 60s! The ... CD

Alexander Robotnick

Fuzz Dance Classics
Materiali Sonori/Spittle (Italy), Early 80s.
Alexander Robotnick may not have been the biggest name on the dancefloors of the 80s – but his early electronic grooves from the Italian scene ended up having a huge impact on Chicago house and early Detroit techno – a link that you'll definitely hear when you drop the needle on this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Iconoclassic, 1985.
A third great chapter in the career of the mighty Steve Arrington – a solo debut, after work in the groups Slave and Hall Of Fame – and a set that has Arrington maybe shining even more than ever in the spotlight! Rhythms are a bit more mid 80s than his previous work – but Steve's ... CD
Impulse, 1970. Gatefold (reissue)
Our favorite-ever album by Alice Coltrane – a masterpiece of spirit and soul, recorded in a wonderfully open-handed style – and with a vibe that's maybe a bit different than some of her other records, especially the ones with larger groups! The album's mostly a spare batch of tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox/Cinewax (Italy), Early 70s. (reissue)
A really wonderful moment in music from Giorgio Gaslini – the Italian musician who's known to most for his avant jazz piano work, but who also gave the world some pretty great soundtracks too! Some of Gaslini's jazz work involved unique cross-cultural hybrids – and that's definitely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco/Big Pink (South Korea), 1975.
It must have cost Barrabas plenty to make the heart-shaped manhole on the cover of this album – but given the sound of the grooves, the money was well worth it! The set's a fair bit tighter than their earliest work from Spain – but also a great direction for their styles – one ... CD
Past Due, Late 70s.
Never-heard music from the great Richie Weeks – an artist you might know for his work in New York dancefloor groups The Jammers and Weeks & Co – but who's heard here on cuts that represent his never-ending efforts to come up with great grooves in the studio! Much of this music was ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s.
Greasy Mike's been making the global rounds on records like this – serving up an imagined landscape of weird and wonderful sounds, all pulled from rare singles of late 50s/early 60s vintage! We're not sure Mike's efforts will ever win him a harem, but he's done a great job here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tunde Mabadu & His Sunrise

Bisu
Blackspot/Afrodelic (Italy), 1978. (reissue)
That's Tunde Mabadu holding a heavy tenor sax on the cover – an instrument which he uses wonderfully on the album's offbeat funky grooves, most of which are very different than more conventional Afro Funk of the time! There's often a slinky midtempo groove to the music – perfect for ... LP, Vinyl record album
2000 Black (UK), 2022.
Dego is fantastic here, and maybe more strongly in song-based territory than on recent records – thanks to some really strong vocals from Samii on a fair bit of the album's tracks! The singer really helps to give the music some focus – taking the amazing energy of Dego's beats, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Cherry/Dewey Redman/Charlie Haden/Ed Blackwell

Tribute To Blackwell
Black Saint (Italy), 1990. (reissue)
A tribute to Ed Blackwell, and one that features the legendary drummer himself – as part of the excellent Old & New Dreams from the 80s! The work was recorded during a Blackwell tribute festival in 1987 – and the group features Don Cherry on trumpet, Dewey Redman on tenor, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grachan Moncur III

Evolution (180 gram pressing)
Blue Note, 1963. (reissue)
Landmark material from the farther reaches of jazz in the mid 60s – one of two albums that trombonist Grachan Moncur recorded for Blue Note – and a session that ranks as one of the best examples of the "new thing" moment in 60s jazz! Grachan's leading a sextet here that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni

Storie Di Guerra
Octopus/Holy Basil (Italy), 1972. (reissue)
A moodier set than usual from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – the kind of sound library album that really lets the composer open up and try some new ideas – of the sort he wouldn't necessarily use in his more famous soundtracks! At points, there's a darkness here that almost feels ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ron Geesin with Bridget St John

Sunday Bloody Sunday (with bonus tracks)
Trunk (UK), 1971.
Ron Geesin's a British arranger with a host of amazing talents – from early work in the exotica field, to a famous collaboration with Roger Waters – always handled with a mindblowing sense of sound and scope! Here, he delivers a superb score for the film Sunday Bloody Sunday – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
