Blue Note, 1965. Gatefold (reissue)
One of the more avant-oriented 60s sessions cut by Wayne Shorter for Blue Note – a record that's not entirely part of the "new thing" generation, but which definitely has Shorter pushing the boundaries from his previous records for the label! The lineup here is a key batch of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Craft, 1966.
The third soundtrack that Vince Guaraldi did for The Peanuts TV specials – and maybe the best so far! There's a depth to the music that's wonderful – as Vince's combo works alongside some occasional larger orchestrations by John Scott Trotter, which are still arranged by Guaraldi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sun Ra

Lanquidity
Philly Jazz/Strut (UK), 1978. (reissue)
An amazing album from Sun Ra – a set that's got some of the same soulful focus as Space Is The Place, and a really surprising sense of groove on many moments! The record's actually a bit funky – if you can believe it – and was recorded with electric keyboards, bass, and guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mikio Masuda

Corazon
Electric Bird/Holy Basil, 1979. (reissue)
Keyboardist Mikio Masuda cut plenty of great fusion records in 70s Japan – but this set was recorded in the US, with some very soulful help from a great American lineup! David Matthews arranged the set, with a bit of a Kudu Records vibe – which means that Mikio's got lead solos on both ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Greenwich

Sun Song
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1974. (reissue)
A gem of a record from the great Sonny Greenwich – an open-toned guitarist with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a Canadian player who never got much exposure down here in the US, but who really stands apart from most of the jazz guitarists of his generation! There's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burnt Sugar Arkestra

Angels Over Oakanda
Avantgroidd, 2021.
Wonderfully righteous work from Burnt Sugar Arkestra – a group who've been giving us great records for years, but who are maybe even more important to the scene than ever before! The core of the record is the long title track – a very jazzy tune that builds up over loops set down by ... CD
Reprise/Light In The Attic, 1966.
The record that forever put Nancy Sinatra over the top – thanks to the massive title hit "Boots Are Made For Walking" – and some impeccable Lee Hazlewood production that really found a way to make Nancy sound fantastic! The young Sinatra had been wanting to make her own ... CD

Vasconcelos Sentimento

Futuro
Far Out (UK), 2021.
A record that's incredibly hard to pin down – and we mean that in the best way possible – a really explosive blend of jazz elements, contemporary rhythms, and all these other wonderful sounds and styles – a globe's worth of music that somehow was created in just a tiny bedroom ... CD

Brian Brown Quintet

Carlton Streets
44 Records/Roundtable (Australia), 1975. Gatefold (reissue)
One of the best albums ever recorded by Brian Brown – an Australian sax player with roots in the country's late 50s hardbop scene, and who here is continuing to grow tremendously, stretching out in a post-Coltrane mode that's touched with electric keyboards and bass, and a very free-wheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat Birchall

Ancient Africa
Ancient Archive Of Sound (UK), 2021.
A really beautiful record from reedman Nat Birchall – a solo set, but one that's got the same spiritual flow as his records with a group – as Nat himself handles a number of different instruments over the course of the set, using overdubs to give the whole thing the same spiritual flair ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lewis Taylor

Lewis Taylor
Island/Be With (UK), 1996. 2LP
A hell of a classic from UK singer Lewis Taylor – one of the best blue-eyed soul albums recorded in the 90s, and a record that's still years ahead of its time! In a stretch when so many others were putting out fake soul – or breathing heavily on downtempo records – Taylor found a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pompeii/Goldenlane, 1968. Gatefold (reissue)
One of the coolest records ever from Ike and Tina Turner – and definitely one of their records with a very cool cover! The set was recorded for Ike's short-lived Pompeii subsidiary for Atlantic – a label where he did some of his heaviest, funkiest work of the 60s – serving up a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Golden Pavilion (Portugal), 1972.
A rare funky gem from the Belgian scene of the 70s – served up by a group that features members of the group Placebo, but working here without the keyboards of Marc Moulin! The vibe is much more open than Placebo, but still shares lots of that group's great talent for mixing together jazz, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1970.
A great precursor to the legendary album Tanglewood 63 – one of the touchstones of British jazz at the start of the 70s, and a masterpiece from trombonist/arranger Mike Gibbs! The tracks here are live studio takes on some of the tunes that appeared on the set, plus other material too – ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s.
A second amazing collection of rare funk tracks from the Mid East – work that didn't exist in the same "scene"-styled world as American funk, but which instead comes from a disparate group of recordings that surprisingly, amazingly, turned out to be pretty darn funky! Musical modes ... CD
Tommy Boy, 1990. 2LP (reissue)
A fantastic debut from Digital Underground – an early 90s classic that opened the door for a whole new audience for hip hop at the time! The set effortlessly mixes old school funk with contemporary hip hop modes – and also maybe brings back in a bit of the party sort of vibe of early ... LP, Vinyl record album
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1971.
Great live work by Albert Mangelsdorff – recorded during the height of his creative years at MPS, at a time when he was easily one of the most creative trombonists in the world! Mangelsdorff has risen to new heights by the time of this record – pushing the instrument to a level that ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1950s/Early 60s. 2LP & bonus 7 inch
Killer work from one of our favorite labels of all time – the mighty King Records, home to some of the best R&B material of the 50s, and some of the best cuts of the early soul years! Apart from the label's great fame and big hits, they also recorded countless other singles that barely ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hasaan Ibn Ali (Hasaan)

Metaphysics – The Lost Atlantic Album
Atlantic/Omnivore, 1965.
A lost jazz treasure from one of the most enigmatic pianists of the 60s – the legendary Hasaan, who recorded famously with Max Roach on Atlantic Records, but who also left behind this rare session that's never seen the light of day until now! Hasaan hails from Philly, where he was a player ... CD

Lee Perry & Friends

Black Art From The Black Ark
Pressure Sounds, Late 60s/Early 70s.
A host of rare gems from the early years of Lee Perry's legendary Black Ark studios – material recorded by Scratch himself, on some cuts featuring The Upsetters, others some close contemporaries – but all nicely unified here by contributions from Lee at just about every level! As with ... CD
