Complicite ... LP Return To Analog (Canada), 1977. New Copy (reissue)...
A jazz record, but one with so much going on it's impossible to pin down – strands of influences from Latin, Brazilian, and other modes – mixed with occasional vocal contributions too! The vibe is a bit like some of those really creative criss-crossings on the French scene of the 70s ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis with Sonny Stitt —
Live In Paris – 1960 ... LP Fremeaux & Associates/Return To Analog (Canada), 1960. New Copy 2LP ...

The music here is wonderful – tracks that are often quite long, and stretched out nicely from the Columbia Records material by ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful mix of Quebecois prog and fusion – performed here by the core group Offenbach, working with larger accompaniment from the Vic Vogel Big Band! The performance is a unique one, but also a summation of all the freewheeling ideas that were taking place in this overlooked scene – ... (Rock, Jazz)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 100 numbered copies!)
A wonderful late 50s live recording from the Horace Silver Quintet – one that features some very long performances of key songs from the group's book, with some very extended solos, and a much different vibe than some of the studio versions! As with the Jazz Messengers during this time, the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A completely wonderful album from percussionist Guy Warren – a creative musician who made lots of great records over the years – but who maybe never topped himself after this gem from the late 60s UK scene! The set was done as part of the legendary Landsdowne Series for Columbia UK ... (Global Grooves, Jazz)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
