Sugar Hill/Big Pink (South Korea), 1974.
Far and away the greatest album that Brother To Brother ever cut – and a monster record that's satisfying all the way through! At their roots, the band have an ensemble funk style similar to many other 70s groups – but they also add in a lot of jazzy changes and a nascent sense of a ... CD

William Parker/Cooper Moore/Hamid Drake

Heart Trio (with bonus download)
Aum Fidelity, 2023.
A record that's full of heart – and one that features the great bassist William Parker handling a whole host of other instruments as well – ney flute, shakuhachi, bass dudek, Serbian flute, and ngoni – all of which stretch out and show the way that his sense of spirit can inhabit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey with Barney Wilen

Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Fontana/Universal (France), Late 1950s. Gatefold (reissue)
One of the greatest non-blue Note albums ever recorded by Art Blakey in the early days – an album that was originally only ever issued in France, as the material here was done for a great new wave film directed by Roger Vadim! The vibe here is nicely different than some of the more familiar ... LP, Vinyl record album
DIW/Super Fuji Discs (Japan), 1988. 2CD
A classic Arkestra live set from the end of the 80s – beautifully recorded, and put together with a lot more dynamic energy than some of the less professional Sun Ra live dates from the time! The set runs for nearly an hour in length, and tracks are long, but often quite focused – ... CD
Edsel/Demon (UK), Late 1970s/Early 1980s. 2CD
Don't worry about the discharge, and don't let the fever get you down – as this set's the cure, not the cause – a really well-done collection of disco gems from the glory days of the US scene – not pop cuts or radio hits, but the kind of underground tracks that kept things burning ... CD
Riverside/Jazzman (UK), 1960s/Early 1970s.
A set that looks at the surprisingly strong contribution to spiritual jazz from the Riverside Records label – a company best known for their late 50s/early 60s classics from Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, and others – but one who also allowed enough artistic freedom for other artists on ... CD
Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 1970s. 2CD
A stunning array of dub work from Niney – all originally issued on very limited 7" singles in Jamaica, and most of which appear here on CD for the first time ever! And although Niney's music has been compiled before, this set is definitely the deepest dig into his records that we'ver ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 1970s/Early 1980s.
A really cool set that documents the rise of the synthesizer in sound library music – not the weird, offbeat electronics that were getting recorded in the late 60s – but more tuneful, keyboard-based modes that really transformed the scene at the time, and helped change up the way sound ... CD
Crown/P-Vine (Japan), 1963. (reissue)
Something of a full-length debut for the great Ike Turner – and a set that brings together some of his key moments working as a powerhouse for the RPM/Crown label in the 50s! Ike's on guitar on most of these tracks, and he sings too – but he's also a force at the helm of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

William Parker & Ellen Christi

Cereal Music
Aum Fidelity, 2024.
A really beautiful, really unique album from William Parker – a set that still features some work on bass, but which also opens up with some spoken passages that unlock a new sense of poetry and spirit that we've never heard this strongly! The record's a collaboration with Ellen Christi, who ... CD

Tony Oxley Quintet

Angular Apron
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1992.
A brilliant album-length improvisation headed up by drummer Tony Oxley – done at a time when he was serving up some of his best recordings on the European scene – a legacy to which this never-issued performance can be added! The set is completely on fire throughout – Oxley at his ... CD

Akira Miyazawa

Noyuri
CAE (Japan), 1992.
A wonderful later album from Japanese tenor giant Akira Miyazawa – one of the players who really helped the scene find its own sound back in the 60s, still sounding wonderful here decades later! Miyazawa's tone and timing are superb – and the album's a set of duets with the pianist ... CD

Mestizo Beat

Jaragua
F Spot, 2024.
A second set of funky Latin grooves from Mestizo Beat – a combo who work here in styles that take us back to the LA sound of the early 70s – which is maybe no surprise, given that the album was recorded in Topanga! Latin rhythms work together with funk instrumentation – all at a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tomorrow International/P-Vine (Japan), 1976.
Quite possibly the funkiest album ever recorded by saxophone legend Nathan Davis – a sweet little session with plenty of electric touches! The sound here differs greatly from Davis' 60s work on the European scene – his amazing albums for MPS and Polydor – and the record's awash ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 1960s/Early 1970s. 2LP Gatefold
A second set of tracks chosen by the hip British duo of Martin Freeman and Eddie Piller – the former a well-known actor, the latter the man who founded the Acid Jazz label many years back! In some way, the set's similar to some of the compilations that were first showing up in the early ... LP, Vinyl record album
BTF/Italian Golden Mondo (Japan), 1973.
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time! The group features two guitars and lots of organ and keyboards from the leader – really ... CD

Joe Yamanaka & The Wailers

Reggae Vibrations
Teichiku/Jamdung (Italy), 1982. (reissue)
One of the most unusual chapters in the career of The Wailers – a set that has the group backing up singer Joe Yamanaka – an artist born in Japan, but with Caribbean roots – and one who's famous for his earlier time in the Flower Travellin Band! The set was recorded at Tuff Gong, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Soul & Salvation
Tribute/Liberation Hall, 1969.
A damn funky record from Dizzy Gillespie – not the bebop of his early years, nor the longer Latiny tracks of the 60s – but instead this great set of short, tight instrumentals that are all arranged by funky genius Ed Bland, then topped with some wicked solos from Dizz! The group also ... CD

Sade

Promise
Portrait/Legacy, 1985. Gatefold (reissue)
The second fantastic album from Sade Adu and crew – a record that continues the wonderful style of jazzy soul they forged on their debut – and which really sets a new tone for sophisticated soul in the 80s! At a moment when so many others were thinking that maturity meant throwing away ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman/Acid Jazz (UK), 2023.
A great return to form for the legendary Flying Dutchman label – born anew here with a killer album of righteous soul from the legendary Billy Valentine! Billy's no stranger to music, but he sounds better than we might have expected – in part because he gets backings throughout from a ... CD
