Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media

Head Rock (Japanese Record Day release)
Columbia (Japan), 1970. Gatefold (reissue)
A definite head rocker here – a brilliant bit of funky jazz from Japan, and a record that beautifully balances acoustic and electric elements! Jiro Inagaki plays some heavy tenor and soprano sax on the record – working with a combo that includes electric guitar, electric bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Art Yard/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1974. (reissue)
Amazing work from Sun Ra – record that really features a great range of sounds and styles, and a heck of a lot of soul as well! Ra plays some especially nice rocksichord on the set – that freaky, fuzzy keyboard that comes off sounding like a guitar, even though it's played with keys ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rapster/BBE (UK), Late 70s.
The genius of Roy Ayers knows no end – and as this set of unreleased work from the 70s proves, Roy was always working at top form back in the day – even above and beyond his classic albums from the time! The grooves here are tremendous – funky, soulful, jazzy, and every bit as ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s.
The cover might look a bit basic, but the collection is fantastic – a really strong overview of the hipper corners of Japanese jazz in the 70s, particularly as the decade moved in – pulled together from a range of different indie label releases that show just how compelling the farther ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1970. (reissue)
A killer funky group from early 70s Japan – a slightly large ensemble, but one with some really heavy drums at the bottom – plus some great use of organ and electric guitar! There's a tight brace of horns at the top – flute, tenor, trumpets, and trombone – but the rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nodlew/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1973. (reissue)
One of the most beautiful records to come out of the early 70s – a tremendous indie effort from a young Weldon Irvine! Irvine put this album together as sort of a musical "time capsule" of his generation – an effort to capture the era's thoughts, feelings, and emotions ... LP, Vinyl record album

Natural High

Natural High 1
Chimneyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979.
An obscure little modern soul groover – with a jazzy funk touch that you wouldn't expect from a record cut at Malaco Studios and released on the southern soul heavy Chimneyville imprint – usually home to much rootsier material! The group's got a soaring groove – with a lot of ... CD

Thompsons

I'll Get Over It
BCW, Mid 70s. Gatefold (reissue)
A tremendous album from a totally hip Philly soul group of the 70s – the kind of quartet who would have been huge, had they recorded in another city – but whose genius was most likely eclipsed by the superstars that were stuffing the Philadelphia scene at the time! These guys have a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electro Keyboard Orchestra

Electro Keyboard Orchestra
Columbia/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975.
Electric keyboards galore – and a sweet 70s album from Japan! The set features a large group of Japanese keyboard players – all playing Korg synthesizers, in styles that range from laidback and mellow to upbeat and funky! The group's got core backing by a tight rhythm combo – ... CD
Nimbus/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1981. (reissue)
A strong trio session from Horace Tapscott – recorded in Santa Barbara in 1981, with a trio that features Sonship on percussion and the great Roberto Miranda on bass! Miranda's tone is round and warm, and brings out some of the most soulful sides of Tapscott's playing – even when he's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Automat

Automat
EMI/Tempo Dischi (Italy), 1978. (reissue)
Sweet cosmic disco from the Italian scene of the 70s – a record that was produced at a time when the inspirations of Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream were really finding their way into the clubs! The group is really just the duo of Romano Musumarra and Claudi Gizzi– and the pair work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sho Nuff

Tonite
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980.
A southern funky nugget from Sho-Nuff – issued at an early 80s point when the Malaco label was open to other modes besides just blues and deep soul! The record's got a tight clubby crackle that feels like something from the New York indie scene of the time – a lean groove that's very ... CD
FPE, 1994.
A fantastic live document of the genius of Chicago tenorist Fred Anderson – captured here with an excellent group that soar with the same boundless energy as their leader! Anderson is blowing at his very own Velvet Lounge club on the south side of the city – but he's hardly laidback ... CD

James Reese & The Progressions

Wait For Me
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. 2CD
A fantastic lost legacy of soul from the South Carolina scene at the end of the 60s – the first-ever full length release of material by James Reese & The Progressions – a fantastic package that brings together all their rare material issued on funky 45s back in the day! Reese was a ... CD

Kuzu (Dave Rempis/Taqshi Dorji/Tyler Damon)

Purple Dark Opal
Aerophonic, 2020.
A tremendous single improvisation by this very hip trio – Taqshi Dorji on guitar, Tyler Damon on drums, and Dave Rempis on alto, tenor, and baritone sax! The drums have this very resonant quality at times – almost acting with elements that make up for the lack of a bass at times – ... CD

Yosuke Yamashita

Tenshi No Koukotu
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972.
A rare jazz soundtrack from Japanese pianist Yosuke Yamashita – best known for his avant recordings of the time, but sounding equally enigmatic here in the film score world! The album's hardly the standard jazz score – as the tunes shift mood strongly from track to track – ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1967. 2CD
A really fantastic live performance from the Charles Lloyd group of the late 60s – a double-length set that's a wonderful complement to their classic albums on Atlantic Records! The group is great – a young Keith Jarrett on piano, Ron McClure on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums ... CD

Kan Mikami & Ryojiro Furusawa

Syokugyo – Profession
Johnny's Disk/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978.
A pretty amazing record from a time when it seemed like all holds were off on the Japanese record industry – especially on smaller labels like Johnny's Disk, who recorded this album during a period of really intense creativity! The album begins with heavy drums from Ryojiro Furusawa – ... CD
Ultra Vybe/Takt (Japan), 1969.
The album's got a sexy little cover – but that's no surprise, considering that the record's a late 60s "Playboy Manual" from Japan! The format is quite weird – as each track begins with some Japanese spoken bits from Norio Maeda, possibly on the art of seduction – and ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, 1960s. 8CD
CD...$135.99 136.00
An amazing run of music – some of our favorite albums ever recorded for the Blue Note label, and the legendary second chapter of the career of tenor genius Hank Mobley! Hank was already a hell of a tenor player when he came on the scene in the 50s – graced with this deeply soulful ... CD
