Hi Records/Fat Possum, Early 70s/2021.
A very cool idea for a collection – a set that takes all the classic early Al Green material for Hi Records, and adds in some larger orchestrations – all at a level that's way better than you might expect, and with a sound that's very faithful to the originals! The larger charts are ... CD

Leo Acosta

Acosta
Capitol/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1970. (reissue)
A killer set from funky drummer Leo Acosta – a Mexican musician, but one who draws plenty of influence here from the New York scene – before turning the whole thing into a set of weird and wild sounds that are very much his own! Leo's clearly got some Latin soul vibe going on here ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Early 70s. 5LP
A tremendous package of work from this overlooked soul and gospel legend – four classic albums, plus other rare material too – all packaged with detailed notes in the wonderful Numero Group style! First up is Like A Ship Without A Sail – a gospel album from Pastor TL Barrett, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1964.
One of Eric Dolphy's lasting classics – and possibly the ultimate album of "new thing" jazz from the mid 60s! The record's got an even sharper edge than previous Dolphy recordings for Prestige – a really unique combination of instrumentation that includes Freddie Hubbard on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s. 3CD
A fantastic run of music from a group who were key to the rising sound of soul music on Atlantic Records during the 60s – but who sometimes didn't always get their due! The Sweet Inspirations have roots in gospel – as the famous Drinkard Sisters – and they've also got a legacy ... CD

Esperanza Spalding

Songwrights Apothecary Lab
Concord, 2021.
One of the hippest records we've ever heard from Esperanza Spalding – a set that almost feels as if she's stepping back into some of the more experimental, individual qualities that made her so different at the start! There's definitely some appealing, catchy songs here – but the ... CD

William Hooker

Big Moon
ORG, 2021.
Maybe one of the most beautiful albums we've heard from William Hooker in years – and a set that has so much more to offer than just his work on drums! There's certainly some of the freer, more improvised moments on the record that you'd expect from Hooker – but there's also these ... CD

Arturo O'Farrill

Dreaming In Lions
Blue Note, 2021.
The Blue Note debut of Latin Jazz pianist Arturo O'Farrill – and a set that may well be some of his most ambitious material to date! Arturo's often got an ear towards wider levels of expression than standard jazz or Latin – but here, he really steps out strongly on two extended suites ... CD

Rugged Nuggets

Odds & Ends
Colemine, 2021.
These nuggets are plenty rugged – but they've also got a sharpness that marks the group as one of the most inventive funk acts to emerge in recent years – a combo who know that sometimes you can do more with a lot less – which in this case includes a focus on spare but well-crafted ... CD

Archie Shepp & Jason Moran

Let My People Go
Archie Ball (France), 2021.
Fantastic duets between saxophonist Archie Shepp and pianist Jason Moran – a record that really continues a legacy of this sort of work that Shepp has previously done with players like Dollar Brand, Horace Parlan, and Mal Waldron! The strength of Moran's expression here is every bit as ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. (reissue)
A brilliant album – and real turning point for Herbie Hancock! After first coming onto the scene as the soul jazz hero between Blue Note funky classics like "Watermelon Man" or "Blind Man, Blind Man" – Herbie emerges here as a concerned modernist with a strand of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hozan Yamamoto & Yu Imai

Akuma Ga Kitarite Fue Wo Fuk
Columbia/Mr Bongo (UK), 1979. (reissue)
We've always loved the music of Hozan Yamamoto – the Japanese flute player who really has a way of mixing his instrument with all sorts of weird and unusual modes – from traditional folk styles, to bossa nova, to funk and jazz as well! Here, though, Hozan may well be outdoing himself ... LP, Vinyl record album
WeJazz (Finland), 2021.
That's the lovely Alice Coltrane on the cover – given some great treatment inside by author Ashley Khan, who literally wrote the book in Impulse Records! There's lots more too – a great piece on Sun Ra, a look at contemporary production of vinyl, record guru/label owner John Corbett, a ... Magazine
Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s.
We're not sure we've ever heard the term "garage funk" before, but it certainly fits the vibe of this sweet little collection – even though all the tracks here were actually recorded in a church! Not that the music is religious, though – the funky sounds within are certainly ... CD

Dick Khoza

Chapita
Sun/Matsuli (UK), 1976.
One of the hippest bits of funk we've heard from the South African scene of the 70s – a record that mixes in plenty of currents from spiritual jazz, with a vibe that's very similar to the albums by Oneness Of Juju from the same time! The set's got this very universal appeal – earlier ... CD
High Note, 2021.
Houston Person recording live in Paris, but in a setting that has the tenor legend going right back to his 60s material – as he's playing here in an organ combo, with Ben Paterson on the Hammond B3, Peter Bernstein on guitar, and the great Willie Jones III on drums! The whole thing crackles ... CD
World Pacific/Blue Note, 1953. (reissue)
A set that's noteworthy not just for the presence of alto saxophonist Lee Konitz, and for the leadership of baritonist Gerry Mulligan – but a record that also features the great Chet Baker on trumpet, working here as part of a trio of musicians who were really helping transform the sound of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Probe/Now Again, 1969.
The one and only album from the enigmatic Steve Morgen – and a set that's gone on to become something of a psychedelic legend over the years! The set is fantastic right from the very first note – with searing guitars, heavy drums, and these insane vocals that make you feel like Steve ... CD
Stones Throw, 2021. 2LP
Kiefer's a musician who just keeps on getting better and better with each new record – a keyboardist who's moving more and more into jazz-based territory as time goes on – and past the more hip hop oriented material of his earlier work! There's still a love of shimmering production and ... LP, Vinyl record album
T Neck/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. Gatefold (reissue)
A very weird, but very beautiful album by the Isleys – one in which they move into a folksy rock groove, and play acoustic guitars in long spiraling soulful versions of some of their favorite rock hits! The sound's a bit like Terry Callier or Bill Withers, but it's also still got that sexy ... LP, Vinyl record album
