A great little album – even if it tries to promise too much! The set bills itself as "the swinginest Hammond organ album since the birth of psychedelia" – and while that sort of a claim is so high that nobody could ever match it, the album is a great batch of offbeat soul ...

Wolfgang Muthspiel/Scott Colley/Brian Blade —
Angular Blues ... LP ECM (Germany), 2020. New Copy ...
A record that's maybe one of the most tuneful, lyrical we've ever heard from guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel – and that may have a lot to do with the wonderful help in the trio from Scott Colley on bass and Brian Blade on drums!

A really unique little record from Ze Eduardo Nazario – a set that maybe begins in improvised jazz, but which soon opens up to a world of different sonic possibilities – on some moments that have a very Brazilian vibe overall, even if it is an experimental one! Eduardo plays a range of ... (Brazil, Jazz)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great little album – a lot better than you might think from the concept!

A later issue of material recorded in the late 60s by Phineas for Contempoary – tunes from the sessions for the album Please Send Me Someone To Love, but which didn't make the cut at the time – and are here issued a decade after the original recordings. The group on the set features ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Walter Norris & George Mraz —
Drifting ... LP Enja, 1974. Near Mint- ...
The title's an appropriate one – as the record drifts a bit lazily from track to track.

Urbaniak's joined by Roy Haynes, Kenny Barron, Buster Williams and Ted Dunbar in the New York Five, playing a more straight set than some of the fusion sides he's more well known for.

Great small combo work from Anita O'Day – done at a time when the singer had maybe faded from the American limelight a bit, but continued to do some really exceptional work for a variety of smaller labels!

Buddy Bregman's doing the arrangements on this one – and he brings a great jazzy flair to the backings, helping Anita O'Day open up in her most dynamic mode!

An album of solo piano work by the enigmatic Errol Parker.
