Brigadiers/Matsuli (UK), 1970.
A rare set from Zorro Five – a South African group, but one who sound a bit like some of the best Italian sound library combos of the time – really stepping out in a hip blend of riffing guitar, hard drums, and organ! That aspect is maybe no surprise, given that Zorro Five were more of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harold Johnson Sextet

House On Elm Street
HME/Survival Research (Italy), 1967. (reissue)
A fantastic soul jazz set from the 60s – one of the few ever cut by pianist Harold Johnson, and a record that brims over with youthful power and new ideas!

Barney Wilen & Alan Jean-Marie

Montreal Duets
Elemental, 1993. 2CD
Sublime later work from French saxophonist Barney Wilen – working here with pianist Alan Jean-Marie, an artist that we totally love on his own! Some people know Jean-Marie best for his recordings of biguine jazz – mixing the rhythms of his native Martinique with more contemporary modes ... CD

Pulsallama

Pulsallama

The only full-length set of work ever issued by Pulsallama – a totally wonderful all-girl group from the early 80s downtown scene in New York – best known for their one great single on Y Records! Pulsallama have a highly percussive approach, and a fair bit of bass as well – kind ... CD

Eugene McDaniels

Outlaw (red vinyl pressing)
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1970. (reissue)
An incredible step forward for 60s soul singer Gene McDaniels – so much so, that most folks hearing this album can't believe he's the same guy who recorded for Liberty Records a few years before! The album's incredibly righteous right from the start – and has a genre-busting quality ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman/Tidal Waves, 1975. Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic transformation of the Oliver Nelson sound of the 60s – a large ensemble record that takes all the soul of his earlier groove, and reworks it with a more electric vibe for the 70s! Nelson's at the height of his powers here – working brilliantly as a leader and arranger, to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mosaic, 1975. 7CD
CD...$118.99 119.00
A huge amount of 70s material from the legendary Paul Desmond – all recorded during the year of 1975, with backing from a shifting group of Canadian players – and most of it unissued until now! You'll know some of these tracks from the albums Paul Desmond Quartet Live (A&M), Paul ... CD

Harry Beckett

Joy Unlimited
Cadillac (UK), 1974.
Genius work from trumpeter Harry Beckett – the kind of easygoing electric work that he seemed to do better than anyone else on the British scene of the early 70s! The record's got a laidback approach that's really unique – one that pits Beckett's trumpet against guitar by Ray Russell, ... CD

Berto Pisano/Franco Pisano

La Svergognata/Anima Mia
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974.
A sweetly sexy soundtrack from the great Berto Pisano – one that really lives up to its image on the cover! There's a gently grooving feel to the music that's right up there with the best erotica work from Morricone – handled by Pisano with light strings, keyboards, bits of flute, and ... CD

Dawan Muhammad

Deep Stream
Evidence/High Jazz (Switzerland), 1979. (reissue)
A really amazing record from Dawan Muhammad – a west coast musician who never got the same sort of spiritual jazz credit as some of the giants of the 70s – but who kept on making really wonderful music as the years went on! Muhammad's recently known as the force behind the Life Force ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zawinul Syndicate

Black Water/Lost Tribes
BGO (UK), 1989/1992. 2CD
Two Joe Zawinul albums – back to back on a single set! Black Water is funky fusion from the late 80s combo of keyboardist Joe Zawinul – a set that takes off nicely from his classic work in Weather Report, then adds in both a dose of soul and more global elements! The group features ... CD
Third Man, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s.
Beautifully blue-tinged work from tejano legend Martin Solis – an artist who never recorded much during his life, but performed constantly for the Mexican community in and around Detroit! Solis both sings and handles the large bajo sexteto – a deep-toned instrument that really invokes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vedette/Beat (Italy), 1973.
A totally groovy gem from the great Piero Umiliani – and one of his rarest soundtracks of the 70s – and a set that brings together so many different wonderful strands of his sound! Some tunes have sweeping strings, others have offbeat vocals, some have quirky instrumentation, and a few ... CD

Evan Parker

Monoceros
Incus (UK), 1978.
Evan Parker, playing solo soprano sax – and recorded in a unique way that cuts his performance directly onto disc, which results in really stunning sound! The textures of Parker's music here are wonderful – bold notes mixed with more obscure sonic statements – all beautifully ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1970. 3CD
One of the first giant hits by the Grateful Dead – and a record that has the group tightening things up a bit more, and stepping into some of the country-tinged territory of The Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers! Turns out, the move is a great one – as the songs come across with a real ... CD
BGO (UK), Early 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
Four post-Flatts albums from the great Earl Scruggs – served up in a single set! First up is Nashville's Rock – a very unusual album from legendary bluegrass musician Earl Scruggs – a set that has him taking on a whole host of famous 60s rock tunes, and turning them into hip ... CD

Michael Thomas

Event Horizon
Giant Step Arts, 2020. 2CD
Not the first album we've heard from saxophonist Michael Thomas, but a record that definitely has us looking at his music all over again – thanks to a double-length collection of wonderfully extended tunes – on which Thomas really runs with bold, open energy on the alto sax! The group ... CD
Almighty & Insane Books, 2020.
The secret history of Chicago house music – a side of the scene that's even more obscure than its many rare records or long-departed clubs! The book is a fantastic follow up to the first volume – and like that one, features rare flyers, posters, and ads for some of the underground ... Book
Esoteric (UK), Late 70s. 6CD & DVD
A treasure trove of material from 70s pop genius Andrew Gold – four full albums, plus rare material, and a bonus DVD too! Andrew Gold's got a sharp, compressed approach to his music – a style that was maybe learned in the UK production years of both glam and the birth of ELO – ... CD

Stelvio Cipriani

Poliziotto Senza Paura
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977.
CD (LP)
Cool Italian cop soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – easily one of the true masters of the genre! The music is a great mix of mellow moods and funkier moments – spare, piano or keyboard-tinged tunes, which are then offset by more driving numbers that push along with fast guitar, ... CD
