Tubby Hayes

Free Flight
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1972. 2CD
British tenor giant Tubby Hayes left the planet all too soon – passing away at the age of 38 in 1973 – but right up to the end, he continued to blow away most of his contemporaries – as you'll hear from this set of unreleased live material from 1972! The recording is from a time ... CD
Jazz In Britain (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
Rare work from the hippest years of British jazz – music that starts in that late 60s time when English musicians were really finding their own sort of voice – as heard famously in the Landsdowne Series of recordings, and other key albums at the time! Yet the tracks here are from those ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roforofo Jazz

Fire Eater
Office Home (France), 2021.
A French group, fronted by an MC from Chicago – working here in a style that's every bit as striking as the cover! The core sounds blend together older Afro Funk elements with jazz – in a groove that's nice and lean, and which provides a really unique setting for the rhymes of Days ... CD

Francois De Roubaix

Les Secrets De La Mer Rouge
Transversales Disques (France), 1967/1975. (reissue)
Really beautiful soundtrack work from French genius Francois De Roubaix – music for the same program, but from two different periods – brought together to illustrate the constantly-evolving brilliance of the music of De Roubaix! The first half of the set features instrumentals from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Group Sounds Four & Five

Black & White Raga
Jazz In Britain (UK), Mid 60s.
A fantastic group from the British scene at mid 60s – music from a time when the UK world of jazz was exploding from the work of artists like Joe Harriott and Tubby Hayes, but also held some other tremendous talents as well! The group here has trumpeter Henry Lowther and tenorist Lyn Dobson ... CD
El Palmas (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s.
A really great collection of rare tracks from Venezuela – a really under-tapped source of music from the 60s and 70s – and home to some wonderful hybrids and styles! The music here is definitely in the Latin side of the spectrum, but the approach varies nicely – and makes the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), 1974.
Two amazing works from Belgian electronic genius Alain Pierre – both appearing in this form for the first time ever! Side one features 11 minutes of continuous music that Pierre created for the short film O Sidarta – music that mixes a range of electronics, keyboards, and acoustic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Full Blast (Peter Brotzmann)

Farewell Tonic (with download)
Trost (Austria), 2007.
Full Blast really live up to their name here – as the trio comes on with a searing power that almost recalls the early FMP work of reedman Peter Brotzmann! Brotzmann's part of the group, playing a variety of saxes – alongside the drums of Michael Wertmueller and electric bass of Marino ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parafono (UK), 2021.
We always love the music of British tenor saxophonist Nat Birchall – but here, he's in an even more amazing setting than usual – really stretching out in a live format, and working with two Greek musicians who really bring a lot to the performance! In addition to these long, spiritual ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kirk Lightsey & Rudolph Johnson with The All-Stars

Habiba
Gallo/Outernational (UK), 1974. (reissue)
Maybe the hippest record ever issued by pianist Kirk Lightsey – in part because the set was issued on a South African label, and also because it features tremendous work from saxophonist Rudolph Johnson – who you'll know for his two classic 70s albums on the Black Jazz imprint! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Thomas & Matana Roberts

Truth (180 gram pressing)
OTOroku (UK), 2020.
A fantastic meeting between pianist Pat Thomas and alto saxophonist Matana Roberts – recorded live in London, and showing an amazing sense of sympathy between the two improvisers – even though they're normally separated by the space of an ocean! Thomas has these really dark, moody ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pierre Henry

Un Monde Lacere
Transversales Disques (France), 2008.
The legendary French electronic composer Pierre Henry was 80 when he created this piece – but the sound of the music is very much close to his roots – and recalls the kind of striking combinations that Henry brought to the postwar world of musique concrete! The work was recorded in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
A true revolution in Cuban music – not the familiar cha cha and pachanga modes of the pre-Castro years, but instead the huge wave of fresh styles and combinations that sprung up in the years to come! The tracks here aren't the kind of Cuban sounds that are locked in time by the all-star ... CD
Trad Vibe (France), 1976. (pic cover)
Two freaky funky tracks from Cortex – the legendary French group from the 70s! "Les Oiseaux Morts" is a rare vocal track from the trio – but it's also one that's filled with the kind of funky riffs and Fender Rhodes that always made their music so great – and the vocals ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Quincy Davis

Q Vision
Qtime, 2021.
Drummer Quincy Davis has a very visionary approach here – music that makes a bold statement for his role as a leader, as Davis works here with three different groups on a strong set of original material! The mix of players is wonderful – shading in and adding voice to Quincy's music in ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. 2CD
A deep dig into the farther reaches of the exotica boom of the late 50s – served up with the same sort of focus on unusual tracks that we love on the other collections from Lux & Ivy! Given the raunchy sound of The Cramps, you might not expect the duo to have as strong of an ear for the ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2020. (pic cover)
Two very unusual works by the always-enigmatic Van Dyke Parks – both of them variations on older compositions from the middle of the 19th Century! "Old Black Joe" is a famous tune by Stephen Foster – but Parks' version here features this avant take on upright piano, mixed ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Holdsworth/Warleigh/Mathewson/Spring

Warleigh Manor – The Ron Mathewson Tapes Vol 1
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1979.
Really unique work from legendary guitarist Allan Holdsworth – a return to much more adventurous jazz music after years of famous material in a rock-fusion mode – working here alongside reedman Ray Warleigh – who is also at his most expressive as well! The tapes were recorded ... CD
RR Gems (Estonia), 2020.
There's nothing quiet about the way that Muriel Grossman approaches her music – as the saxophonist is one of the boldest, strongest voices in jazz in the past decade – one of the key proponents of the new spiritual underground, and a player who just seems to win us over more and more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Curtom/Rhino, 1972. (reissue)
Curtis Mayfield's lasting classic – and an album that the world will remember forever! Apart from being his hugely successful entry into the blacksploitation soundtrack field, this album's also a monster set of grooves that includes some of Curtis' funkiest work ever – a record that ... LP, Vinyl record album
