Kippie Moketsi & Hal Singer

Blue Stompin
Gallo/We Are Busy Bodies (UK), 1977. (reissue)
A record that features a great guest appearance from American tenorist Hal Singer – a player who always seemed to do some of his most interesting work overseas – but a set that's an even greater testament to alto saxophonist Kippie Moketsi and some of his key collaborators on the South ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brownswood (UK), 2021. 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic moment of music from a single day in the studio – a real outpouring of creative activity from the contemporary London scene! MV4 stands for studio four at Maida Vale – a legendary London recording spot, host on this day to some of the hippest talents in the city, brought ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elemental, 1987. LP, CD, book and comic book (reissue)
A really special album from French tenorist Barney Wilen – a set of tunes originally recorded to accompany a graphic novel about his troubled life – done at a time when Wilen had emerged from years of obscurity, and was opening up a whole new chapter in his music! The presentation here ... LP, Vinyl record album
Freedom/Muzak (Japan), 1969/1971/1976. 2CD Gatefold
A trio of fantastic recordings from Anthony Braxton – all of them at a pivotal time in his career, and each with his reed work in a very different setting! First up is the double-length album The Complete Braxton – a record that's something of a document of Anthony Braxton during his ... CD

TP Orchestra Poly Rythmo De Cotonou

Le Sato
Albarika Store/Acid Jazz (UK), 1974. (reissue)
Stunning early work from the Orchestra Poly Rhythmo – a set that's titled after a set of rhythms used in voodoo rituals in Benin – echoed here strongly by the heavy use of percussion on the record, which includes a giant drum reserved for use only in ritual performance! The sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Freedom/Muzak (Japan), 1975.
Really beautiful 70s work from pianist Andrew Hill – one of his few sessions from this part of the decade to feature a larger set of players – some really wonderful guests that make some real magic with Hill's brilliant compositions! At the start of the 70s, Andrew had announced a back ... CD
Elemental, 1969. 2CD
Two different slices of work from Bill Evans – both recorded on separate visits to The Netherlands in 1969 – a crucial year of performance for the pianist! Both sets feature the amazing Eddie Gomez on bass, and Marty Morell on drums – and the first 2/3 of the package is studio ... CD

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil

Barra 69
Polygram/Universal (Japan), 1969.
A seminal live set that brings together two giants of the Tropicalia scene – Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, recorded here in a rough-edged performance from 1969! The format has the artists alternating songs throughout the set, then coming together for a duet at the end – and the ... CD
Jazz In Britain (UK), Late 60s.
Unreleased work from alto genius Joe Harriott – two different slices of material from a very under-recorded point in his career! The first five tracks feature Joe in that back to basics mode he was hitting at the time – working in a unique group that features Kenny Wheeler on trumpet ... CD
Freedom/Muzak (Japan), 1975. 2CD Gatefold
One of a rare few albums cut as a leader by reedman Dudu Pukwana – maybe best known for his role in the South African jazz group The Blue Notes, and an undeniable force on the London scene in the late 60s and early 70s! This special set is a great merging of both worlds – as Pukwana ... CD
Elenco/Universal (Japan), Mid 60s.
A excellent set of instrumental bossa nova tunes by Roberto Menescal – one of Brazil's true musical geniuses of the 60s! The arrangements are bossa, but much more off-kilter than usual, with a weird edge, and groovy instrumentation, like vibes, that are not that common on Brazilian material ... CD

Vinicius De Moraes & Odette Lara

Vinicius & Odette Lara
Elenco/Universal (Japan), 1963.
A dream of a bossa session – the kind of cool, yet sophisticated session that made the 60s Elenco label so great! The album features vocals by the completely lovely Odette Lara – a blue-tinged singer who really gets at the melancholy in the music – which is superbly underscored ... CD

Elis Regina

Elis (1966)
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1966.
An excellent early gem by one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record captures Elis Regina at a prime early stage – when her voice was raw and filled with emotion, and when she was backed by some excellent arrangements that blended jazz, bossa, and more complicated vocal settings. The ... CD

Milton Banana Trio

Milton Banana Trio (1965)
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1965.
Sublime bossa jazz from one of the greatest combos on the Brazilian scene of the 60s – the crackling trio led by drummer Milton Banana, a really tremendous player no matter what the setting! The album bristles with energy from the very first note – virtually a blueprint for the sound ... CD

Kenny Burrell

Ode To 52nd Street
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1967.
A really wonderful Chess/Cadet session from the 60s – not the bop-styled record you might expect from the 52nd Street reference in the title! Instead, the whole thing's more of a cool Chicago take on soul jazz – with these great large arrangements from Richard Evans, backing strong ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1969.
Swirling spiritual work from Alice Coltrane – an incredible trio album that features her heavily on harp, plus a bit of piano – in a trio with Ron Carter on bass and Rashied Ali on drums! The sound is wonderful – lush, yet contemplative – in a personal style that really ... CD

Kenny Burrell

Asphalt Canyon Suite
Verve (Japan), 1969.
A stunner from Kenny Burrell – one of his most sophisticated and soulful sessions of the 60s! Kenny's working here with the ultra-cool arranger Johnny Pate – best known for his work with Curtis Mayfield, and his 70s soundtrack fame – but a heck of a creative talent when it comes ... CD

Roy Hargrove/Mulgrew Miller

In Harmony
Resonance, 2007. 2CDs
A set of unreleased duets between trumpeter Roy Hargrove and pianist Mulgrew Miller – two players who are definitely in harmony throughout the recording! Most tracks are nice and long – taken with an open, lyrical sensibility – one that's driven strongly by Miller's sense of ... CD

Trio Mocoto

Muita Zorra!
Forma/Universal (Japan), 1971.
Funky funky samba! Trio Mocoto are a unique group in Brazilian music. They're best known as the backing group for Jorge Ben during some of his mid 70s Africanist recordings, but they've also cut a rare few recordings on their own – including this excellent gem from 1971! The album's got a ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1966.
A beautiful early gem from Nara Leao! This one has a similar feel to her classic O Canto Livre album – in that it's got a deeper approach than some of her bossa work, with a mix of some of the more complicated, slightly folksy styles used by singers like Geraldo Vandre or Chico Buarque De ...
