Blue Note, 1962. Gatefold (reissue)
Guitar genius Grant Green is definitely feelin the spirit here – as he mixes his lean 60s style with a host of traditional numbers from the spiritual canon – at a level that provided a whole new sense of soul at the time! There was plenty of music influenced by gospel during the decade ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. 3CD
Don't know "toytown"? We didn't know the reference either, until we heard this totally wonderful set – and it turns out that the word is a great way to describe a unique moment in British music – one that mixes together whimsical psych, playful pop, and a whole host of groovy ... CD

Keith Jarrett

Bordeux Concert
ECM (Germany), 2022.
Beautiful late life improvisations from Keith Jarrett – a concert from 2016 that shows that the format he unleashed in the 70s was still amazingly alive and well – yet also nicely matured a bit too! Instead of one album-length track, the set features a number of shorter passages, 13 in ... CD
Strut (UK), 2022. 2LP Gatefold
Really fantastic work from the continuing version of Sun Ra's Arkestra led by Marshall Allen – and an album of rich sophistication that definitely shows the mature version of the group really finding their own sense of voice and spirit! There's a laidback take to the music that partly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1956. Gatefold (reissue)
Early genius from Kenny Burrell – a set that features the guitarist sounding beautiful in a variety of settings, all of them great! The format really mixes things up nicely – almost showing a more diverse Kenny than in later years – as one track is solo, and the others feature ... LP, Vinyl record album

Various

C85 (3CD set)
Cherry Red (UK), 1985. 3CD
A great look at a year on the British scene when the final years of post-punk gave way to the kind of indie strengths that would set the tone for years to come – a moment made very famous by the C86 compilation, prefaced here by a new look at work from 1985! There's plenty of influence from ... CD
Joe Gibbs/Doctor Bird (UK), 1981. 2CD
A lover's rock classic from Ruddy Thomas – served up here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The core album is First Time Around – an early 80s charmer that has Ruddy's wonderfully soulful vocals wrapped around some great Joe Gibbs production – easy-stepping grooves that ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 5CD
A fantastic collection of work from The Rah Band – a late 70s group who were never that big on the US scene, but who were a key part in helping the UK move from earlier electronic experiments into some of the more catchy grooves of the decade to come! At the start, Rah Band had maybe more of ... CD

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
Cavendish/BBE (UK), Mid 70s. 2CD
Brilliant funky instrumentals from the UK Cavendish Sound Library – a company who could sometimes recorded more staid music, although that certainly wasn't the case with the gems on this collection! The music is by a handful of British studio talents of the time – most of whom come ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1967.
A fantastic lost slice of work by one of the greatest modern jazz forces on the British jazz scene of the 60s – Jamaican-born saxophonist Joe Harriott, known for his groundbreaking avant jazz sessions and his experiments with Indian classical music! The sound here is quite different than ... CD
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. 2LP Gatefold
Heady work from deep deep in the funky 45 underground – raw, gritty, and totally wonderful tracks that are put together at a level that matches the kind of classic funk compilations we first feel in love with back in the day! Sure, there's been plenty of rare tracks unearthed in recent years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 2022.
Although Blue Note is probably one of the most iconic record labels on the planet, the company's also done a great job of reinventing itself as the years go on – always showing that they've still got an ear for the same sort of new talent that made Blue Note so important back in the day! ... CD
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1987.
An excellent mid 80s soul set from Garry Glenn – recorded for Motown, and sadly lost in the shuffle at the time. The record's a surprising gem – sophisticated, mature, and with a laidback quality that really gets past some of the cliches of 80s soul at the time. Garry's got a talent ... 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

Anthony Braxton & James Fei

Duet
Other Minds, 2022.
Saxophonist Anthony Braxton has recorded famous duets with electronic musicians over the years – but here, Braxton handles the electronics himself, while also blowing a variety of saxes – as does his musical partner James Fei! The set features one long piece, recorded live in San ... CD

Jake Mehew

Sage
ATA (UK), 2022.
An album with a subtle approach, but a real richness in sound – maybe a lean take on spiritual modes from years back, delivered mostly on a range of keyboards, bass, and percussion from leader Jake Mehew, but with some strong contributions from other players throughout! This isn't just one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Intakt (Switzerland), 2022. 2CD
An album that feels even more spiritual and soulful than anything we've heard before from tenorist James Brandon Lewis – and that's really saying a lot, given the records he's given us before! There's a lean, open energy to the record – a laidback group that features some especially ... CD

Controllers

Stay
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1986.
A surprisingly wonderful set from The Controllers – recorded years after their late 70s classics, but with a great mellow 80s style that makes some great use of their harmonies! The style here is a mix of smooth quiet storm and mellow midtempo grooving – and although some of the ... CD

Honey & The Bees

Love (yellow vinyl pressing)
Josie/Real Gone, 1970. (reissue)
Sublime soul from Honey & The Bees – some the group's deepest material ever, with a rich vibe that goes way way past some of their earlier singles! Although a female quartet, the group offer up a key link in Philly soul that also encompasses most of the male changes at the time, too ... LP, Vinyl record album
