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

James Brown

Super Bad Live
Sunset Blvd, Early 80s.
A great later document of the power of James Brown in a live setting – an early 80s concert that really cooks strongly all the way through – bubbling over with the sort of non-stop energy that James was bringing to his live albums from the Apollo Theater onward! The group isn't listed ... 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
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
A whole host of rare cuts from the original Kent Records label in LA – the 60s follow-up to the famous Crown/Modern/RPM imprint of the postwar years – a set of labels that gave the world plenty of amazing R&B tracks in the 50s! Here, Kent is going more for a 60s groove overall, but ... CD
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s.
Your Christmas just got a whole lot funkier – thanks to a wonderful entry in this legendary series – maybe one of the coolest collections ever of hard-to-find Holiday grooves! As with previous volumes, almost all the tracks here are pulled from rare funky 45s – obscure original ... CD

Masahiko Togashi with Don Cherry & Charlie Haden

Session In Paris Vol 1 – Song Of Soil
King/We Want Sounds (UK), 1979. (reissue)
One of the greatest records ever from Japanese drummer Masahiko Togashi – a rare European session that features the talents of Don Cherry on trumpet and Charlie Haden on bass! The session's one of Cherry's most compelling performances from the time – a really loose and free date that ... 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
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
Chess/Anagram, 1976. (reissue)
One of the few funky late Chess gems for Etta James – recorded during the period when the company was owned by the All Platinum family of labels in New Jersey – with incredible vocals by Etta! Most of the record was cut in NJ, and features Etta's bluesy style meeting some nice funky ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shika Shika, 2022.
An unusual sort of conservation project – one that features artists from a number of different West African nations, each serving up a song based on an endangered bird from their region! Some of the tracks directly sample the birdsongs, others replicate through instrumentation – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tullio De Piscopo

Tullio De Piscopo Vol 2
Carosello/New Platform (Italy), 1976.
The legendary Italian drummer Tullio De Piscopo is at his most dynamic here – effortlessly blending funky jazz, soul, and bits of prog – all at that level that soon made him a legend in the clubs! Tullio's a hell of a drummer at the core – you'll know that if you've ever heard ... CD

Jorge Lopez Ruiz

Bronca Buenos Aires
Trova/Altercat (Germany), 1971. (reissue)
A true masterpiece from the Argentine jazz scene of the early 70s – recorded at a time when tensions in the nation were really running high, and seemed to drive creative talents to a whole new level of expression! That's definitely the case here, as bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz really knocks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jump World (Japan), 2022.
A really fantastic singer, and one that we're only discovering with this album – an obscure Japanese release that will hopefully put Tea at the front of the line for up and coming young jazz vocalists! The set mixes in plenty of soulful currents with the jazz, thanks in part to the superb ... CD
Mutt & Jeff/P-Vine (Japan), 1969. (reissue)
The back cover of this one says "This Album Should Be Titled MONSTER" – and for once, the back cover is right! The album's the only one we've ever seen by the super-dope LA guitarist Cal Green – a wonderful talent with a hard-edge approach to the strings, one that's a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol (Italy), 2022.
This isn't the first time that Calibro 35 have paid tribute to the music of soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – but given how much great music Morricone gave us over the decades, this project is still very much the tip of the iceberg! If anything, the group have really deepened their sound a ... CD
BGO (UK), Mid 60s. 2CD
A nice little package, one that brings together three American releases of music by London's legendary Georgie Fame! First up is the classic Yeh Yeh – a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and R&B – all filtered through a mod sort of London freshness, as early proof that the city could ... CD

Dezron Douglas

Atalaya
International Anthem, 2022.
Maybe the most beautiful record we've ever heard from bassist Dezron Douglas – an artist who hasn't given us many albums as a leader, but who always creates something special when he does! This set not only follows that legacy, but really knocks it out of the park – as there's a rich, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Sugar (Italy), 1974.
Really fantastic work from Ennio Morricone – a sublime soundtrack, expanded here with all sorts of bonus material that wasn't on the original album! The record features some wonderful vocals from Edda Dell'Orso – singing in that wordless, instrument-like style that could make so many ... CD

Matias Pizarro

Pelo De Rata
Pro Musica/Altercat (Germany), 1975.
A wonderful mix of 70s jazz styles and South American roots – all brought together in a very compelling way for this Argentine session! The music is often modal, and highly rhythmic – led by piano from Matias Pizarro, who also vocalizes a bit – and featuring tenor, guitar, bass, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nation-Wide/ORG, 1980. (reissue)
There's few folks who could make a melodica sound so sinister – yet that's always been the crazy genius of Augustus Pablo – the way he takes such a simple instrument and makes it sound so wild on vintage albums like this! The set was arranged and produced by Enos McLeod, one of Pablo's ... LP, Vinyl record album
