Blue Note, 1966.
Easily one of the most powerful albums ever cut by Don Cherry – a searing set of tracks done for Blue Note in the late 60s – and featuring some tremendous tenor work by Pharoah Sanders! There's a tightness and level of energy here that surpasses even Cherry's other excellent Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2021.
The music of John Coltrane, but served up here with a very different voice – that of tenorist Gabor Bolla, whose captured here at an early point in his career, with a sound that's more than bold enough for the material – but also very much all his own! Kirk Lightsey leads the group, ... CD
Mosaic, Late 40s/1950s/1960s. 6CD
An incredible collection of music from the great pianist Lennie Tristano – and maybe the first-ever set to truly get at the range of genius he could express on the piano! Given that Tristano only made a small amount of records during his too-short career, yet also left a major impact on the ... CD

John Berberian & The Middle Eastern Ensemble

Middle Eastern Rock
Verve/Modern Harmonic, 1969.
Don't think "rock", think "groove" – because oud player John Berberian takes his instrument into some very groovy territory here – mixing its Mid-East roots with a sweet array of modal rhythms and psychedelic elements – all of which make for an album that's ... CD
Dead Oceans, Early 70s. 2CDs
Genius work from the legendary Bill Fay – one of those 70s artists who never got their due back in the day, but who have gone on to become a crucial piece of the musical puzzle as the years move on! Fay recorded two incredible records for Decca – treasures as rare as the early Nick ... CD

Tubby Hayes

Complete Hopbine '69
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1969. 2CD
There's been a number of live performances by tenor great Tubby Hayes at the Hopbine club over the years – but this is the first-ever appearance of this 1969 concert – a great addition to Tubby's too-small catalog in these later years! The tracks are long and extremely vibrant – ... CD

Salah Ragab & The Cairo Jazz Band

Egypt Strut
Strut (UK), 1974. (reissue)
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band – work done by the percussionist who'd also worked with Sun Ra, but who's even more amazing here on his own! As you can probably guess from their name, the ensemble was an Egyptian one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Expansion (UK), 2022. 3CD
Plenty of luxury, and plenty of soul – as you'll be living like a king with this well-priced set – a massive batch of music in one 3CD collection, and a heck of a lot more enjoyable than trawling the internet for underground soul songs you might have missed! This long-running series ... CD

Luke Stewart's Silt Trio

Bottom
Cuneiform, 2022.
Bassist Luke Stewart is fast becoming one of our favorite talents on his instrument in recent years – an artist who first grabbed our ears with his work in Irreversible Entanglements, but who seems even better suited to stand out front as a leader! The performance of the trio here is ... CD

Larry Douglas Alltet

Dedications (180 gram pressing)
Swajola/Tidal Waves, 1984. (reissue)
A rare bit of indie jazz from the Bay Area scene of the 80s – but put together with a groove that's much more 70s overall! The group's headed by trumpeter Larry Douglas, and has a soaring, soulful groove that definitely owes a lot to the spiritual sound on labels like Strata East or Black ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1961. Gatefold (reissue)
Sublimely spiritual work from the great John Coltrane – a live album, but one that's easily one of his most important contributions to music in the early 60s – and a set that we'd rank right up there with his best studio sides for Impulse or Atlantic Records at the time! The group here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Abdullah Ibrahim

Solotude (180 gram pressing)
Gearbox (UK), 2002.
Beautiful solo work from pianist Abdullah Ibrahim – a player with a sound so rich and rhythmic, his sessions like this are often every bit as captivating as his trio and group recordings! There's a really special sort of poetry going on here – first in the way that Ibrahim brings out ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury/Big Pink (South Korea), Late 60s. Gatefold
A really fantastic album from drummer Buddy Miles – an artist that many folks know for his key rock work in the Band Of Gypsys group of Jimi Hendrix, but a musician with an equally great ear for soul and funk as well! Miles began in Electric Flag, and certainly has ties to the world of psych ... CD

Various

This Is Tehran?
30M (Germany), 2022.
A beautiful look at the contemporary scene in Tehran – music that we never would have heard otherwise, were it not for this well-done set! There's definitely a number of tracks that echo some of the older Iranian sounds you might expect, but those are also mixed with some more contemporary ... LP, Vinyl record album

Secret Night Gang

Secret Night Gang
Brownswood (UK), 2022.
Secret Night Gang have a cartoony look on the cover – but the British funk combo play with a richly soulful sound that's overflowing with color and life – and which will definitely mean that they won't be a secret for long! The group mix in a fair bit more jazz than other contemporary ... CD

Mankunku Quartet

Yakhal Inkomo
Mr Bongo (UK), 1968.
A real treasure from the South African scene of the 60s – and the kind of record that we thought wasn't being made until the following decade! Tenorist Winston Mankunku Ngozi rivals the genius of Coltrane and Wayne Shorter here – both artists to whom he dedicates a key track on the ... CD
We Want Sounds (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s.
Beautiful grooves from the Japanese scene – most of them from a time when its singers and musicians were leaning heavily on influences from American funk and soul, and turning out some wonderful music of their own! Lyrics on most tracks are in Japanese, but there's a really universal vibe to ... CD

Willie Hutch

Season For Love
RCA/Be With (UK), 1970. (reissue)
Early work from the great Willie Hutch – a set that's different than his more famous Motown music of the 70s, but which already shows a nicely ambitious approach! Willie's a warmer, sweeter-voiced singer here – working through some great original tunes of his own, plus a few well-chosen ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1965. (reissue)
A hip little live date from Aretha Franklin – one that's got a very jazzy feel, and some great small combo backings! The album's almost a distillation of the jazzy styles on Aretha's first albums for Columbia – taken into even leaner territory here, in ways that really set Franklin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gallo/Tidal Waves, 1977. (reissue)
A beautiful 70s album from Harari – a South African group who already had a long legacy in music before this set, and who really seem to come together with a style that's even more sophisticated than some of their previous albums! The cover might make the record look a bit disco, but there's ... LP, Vinyl record album
