Featured items ...

Decca (UK), 1970. (reissue)
A crowning moment of genius from trumpeter Harry Beckett – a musician who's graced a heck of a lot of records over the years, but who really knocks it out of the park with this amazing early session as a leader! Harry's work on flugelhorn is worth the price of admission alone – bold, ... LP, Vinyl record album
7T's (UK), Early 70s. 4CD
A cool little package that goes way beyond the obvious glam rock numbers you might know from the 70s – and which instead shows just how much that musical moment penetrated the UK scene in the early part of the decade – served up here on a huge variety of tracks that we might not have ... CD

Weldon Irvine

Sisters
Saucerman/Nature Sounds, 1979. (reissue)
A never-issued set from the great Weldon Irvine – late 70s material made after his classic jazz/funk albums on RCA – and a set that's every bit as great as that material! Irvine works with some of the key musicians who'd make great funky records for the Arista/GRP label – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vedette/Holy Basil (Italy), 1972. (reissue)
A keyboard-heavy groover from the great Italian sound library label Vedette – one that features loads of sweet organ and piano lines in many flavors – all mixed with the kind of lovely instrumentation we find in our favorite Italian soundtracks too! Lee Selmoco is actually one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nautilus

Revival
Urban Discos (Japan), 2023.
The group's just a trio, but they've got a wonderfully full sound – a rich funky groove that comes from just drums, bass, and keyboards – yet which has this soaring reach that almost takes us back to the 70s genius of work on labels like Fantasy or Prestige! Drummer Toshiyuki Sasaki is ... CD

Lakecia Benjamin

Phoenix
Whirlwind, 2023.
Lakecia Benjamin has become one of the most unique saxophonists in jazz over the course of her past few records – an artist who can hit deeply spiritual tones when she wants to, but one who's also got a strong sense of soul – able to mix inspirations from the farther reaches with some ... CD

London Jazz Composers Orchestra

Krakow 2020 (6CD set)
Not Two (Poland), 2020. 6CD
A set of recordings that must have left every single member in the group completely exhausted – as the 6CD package brings together material recorded over three great nights in early 2020 – all of which feature Barry Guy at the head of a unique version of his London Jazz Composers ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1950s/Early 60s.
A long-overdue look at the early work of Fats Sadi – a really great player on the European scene during the postwar years, and one who's best known for his 60s material on MPS/Saba, including recordings with the Clarke Boland Big Band! Here, though, Sadi's working in earlier years, and ... CD

Barry Guy & Friends

Krakow 2018 (5CD set)
Not Two (Poland), 2018. 5CD
A brilliant testament not just to the bass work of Barry Guy, but to so many other factors as well – the open spirit of the contemporary Polish avant scene, the strength of key improvisers in each others' company, and even the much-lauded efforts of the Not Two label to present material of ... CD

Ennio Morricone

Controfase
Gemelli/Holy Basil (Italy), 1972. (reissue)
Wonderfully experimental music from Ennio Morricone – even darker at times than some of his famous horror soundtracks – and a record that was only pressed up in an initial small sound library run! The music has an offbeat blend of string elements, percussion, and other darker tones ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), 1982. 3CD
Dig 80s electro pop? You'll find plenty to love here – as the set's a killer collection of tracks from a time when the UK scene was really exploding with new ideas and fresh music! The "radio" in the title is a reference to the fact that once-underground electronic acts were ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), 1966.
A really wonderful addition to the too-small body of work left behind by the great Albert Ayler – a set that brings together some really obscure performances done during a visit to Europe in 1966! We're not sure these have ever appeared elsewhere – at least that we can find in digging ... CD

Count Buffalo & His Rock Band (Akira Ishikawa)

Exciting Drums – African Rock Party
Columbia/Lawson (Japan), 1969. Gatefold (reissue)
The drums are definitely exciting here – really tight rhythms that drive most of these cuts into a funky frenzy – even if the groove is more based on American soul of the late 60s than the African rock promised in the title! Most of the tunes are covers, but remade here as really hip ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wildfire

Dance Hits
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. Gatefold
A cool collection of cuts from one of the hippest groups working on the Trinidad scene in the late 70s – a group who were making work for the clubs, but in a style that was often a lot more lean than mainstream disco! There's a nicely offbeat vibe to this work – not Caribbean funk, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s.
A stunning selection of tracks from a moment when things really got interesting on the UK scene – when the straighter guitar lines of early punk gave way to more unfamiliar instrumentation, unusual production, and offbeat rhythms – yet almost always with a really raw, stripped-down feel ... CD

Kio Amachree

Ivory
SKJ/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1981. (reissue)
A record from that time when the Nigerian scene was really keeping pace with changes in soul music on the other side of the Atlantic – as you'll hear in the way that Kio Amachree serves up the grooves! Kio's the lead force here – not just on vocals, but also guitar and production as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cinephonic

Visions
Marlow (Canada), 2023.
With a name like Cinephonic, you can imagine some of the sound here – but that's also only the tip of the iceberg, as there's a heck of a lot going on with the record! There's definitely a cinematic vibe to the music, yet the work isn't just any retro-styled material influenced by film ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), 1962.
A rare document of a really unique meeting of two giants of the bossa nova generation – the legendary Joao Gilberto on guitar, and the fantastic vocal harmonies of the Os Cariocas quartet – performing both on their own and in combination, in a performance captured at a small club in ... CD

Diego Rivera

Love & Peace
Posi tone, 2023.
Diego Rivera has a very classic look on the cover – and the record comes across with a very classic vibe as well – back to the days of Sonny Stitt or Hank Mobley, when a top-shelf saxophonist set up in a quartet was more than enough to make some really special magic on record! That's ... CD

Elton Dean, Steve Miller, & Pip Pyle

Home Brewed
British Progressive Jazz (UK), 1976.
A fantastic session from the 70s UK jazz scene, and one that's maybe as important to fans of the Canterbury scene as well – given the unusual legacies of the three players involved! The music is definitely jazz, though – fairly improvised, and recorded live with work from Elton Dean on ... CD
