Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1973. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
An essential bit of 70s soul jazz – a real standout in both the catalogs of tenorist Clifford Jordan, and the Stata East label! This is one of those few records where every element is perfect, and all players rise together to a new level of expression – and we'd easily rank this one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Doctor Bird (UK), Early 70s. 2CD
A killer collection of work from Jamaican producer Derrick Harriott – a double length set that features 20 tracks on CD for the first time ever, plus lots of rare nuggets – all from a time when Harriott was completely on fire! Harriott was not only a producer, but also a performer, and ... CD
Sam Records (France), 1975.
Never-issued live material from one of our favorite jazz musicians of all time – the mighty Billy Harper, a tenor saxophonist who took the initial legacy of John Coltrane, then really ran with it in the 70s! The album is stunning right from the very first note – a perfect encapsulation ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mikio Masuda

Mickey's Mouth
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1976. (reissue)
A killer set of electric keyboards – with a groove that stretches from wigged-out Herbie Hancock to the laidback style of Bob James on CTI! Mikio Masuda plays a range of different instruments – from Fender Rhodes to Clavinet, Yamaha organ, ARP, and mini-Korg – and the group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stones Throw, 2021.
Steve Arrington's got a long long legacy in soul music – one that goes back to his late 70s work on Slave – but he also sounds completely contemporary here, working in collaboration with a whole host of producers who were no doubt influenced by his creations of the past, and help ... CD
Micron/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1976.
A roots reggae classic from the 70s – a much more obscure set than the giants of the generation by Bob Marley and Black Uhuru, but a set that's got a similar sort of righteous power – maybe even more so, given that Yabby You has the freedom of an indie label setting to get his message ... CD

Coultrain

Phantasmagoria
Positive Elevation, 2021.
It's been over a decade since Coultrain first knocked us out with his debut – and during that time, he's really continued to grow as an artist – to a point where his talents are more fully-formed and individual than ever, and served up with an increasingly sophisticated sense of ... CD

Francisco Mora Catlett

Mora/Mora 2
AACE/Far Out (UK), Late 80s.
A pair of great albums back to back – both rare albums from a percussionist who worked with Sun Ra! First up is Mora volume 1 – a legendary early set from percussionist Francisco Mora Catlett – and a really sublime blend of spiritual jazz and Latin rhythms! Mora's percussion is ... CD

Lightnin Hopkins

Mojo Hand
Fury/P-Vine (Japan), 1961. (reissue)
A record that states its power right from the stark image on the cover – the genius talents of Lightnin Hopkins, handled by the soulful production of Harlem's great Bobby Robinson! The mix of modes is great – and rather than go for an uptown version of Hopkins' music, Bobby seems to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor/Sam Records (France), Mid 60s. (reissue)
An amazing record that predates many ideas in soul jazz by a decade! Drummer Ron Jefferson was a lesser-known member of the LA bebop scene of the late 50s and early 60s, but by the time he cut this album for French Polygram in the mid 60s, he'd been to Africa, and had discovered a whole new set of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Lion/Muzak (Japan), Early 60s. 2CD Gatefold
A pair of rare late albums from Bud Powell – back to back in a single set! Strictly Confidential is a really unusual set of recordings from pianist Bud Powell – tracks recorded in his overseas home, solo – a setting that puts the keyboard magic of Powell in a similar sound to ... CD

Shamek Farrah & Sonelius Smith

World Of The Children (180 gram pressing)
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1977. (reissue)
An amazing session of spiritual soul jazz – and one of the rarest albums on Strata East! Shamek Farrah's soulful alto is matched with the free spiritual piano of Sonelius Smith, for a totally memorable session that virtually defines the essence of the Strata East sound! The music is free, ... LP, Vinyl record album
India Navigation/Valley Of Search, 1975.
One of the only albums ever issued by New York reedman Alan Braufman – a player who works here in a setting that really captures the best energy of the loft jazz scene in the 70s – at a time when Braufman was part of a musicians collective on Canal Street that also included David S Ware! ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), Mid 70s. 2CD
A trio of cool cop soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – all brought together in a beautiful package with a really unified feel! Cipriani's easily one of our favorite Italian composers for the cop/crime genre – as he's got a way of bringing sensitive sounds into play with driving action ... CD
Mississippi, Late 70s/Early 80s. 2LP Gatefold
The mighty Alan Lomax has maybe done more to document rural American music in the 20th century than anyone else – most famously for a midcentury series of recordings for the Library Of Congress and Folkways Records, which established Lomax as having an incredible ear for lesser-heard sounds ... LP, Vinyl record album
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1974. (reissue)
One of the hardest to find records on Strata East, and one of the best – a darkly-crafted session of pure beauty, one that lives up to all the best promise of the label! The tracks are long, the sound is bold, and the whole thing moves at a pace that none of the bigger jazz labels were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Red Hook, 2021.
The last recordings ever made by legendary Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi – an artist we first came to love for his albums of the 60s and 70s – and who's still incredibly powerful here in his final years! The feel of the record is different than you might expect – Kikuchi is ... CD

Logic System

Logic
Express (Japan), 1981. (reissue)
A classic album from this Japanese electronic group – a set that definitely borrows elements from 70s jazz fusion, but winnows them down into a leaner, more compact mode that's very much in the mode of the scene at the time! Instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, guitar parts, and rhythm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve/Esoteric (UK), 1970.
Fantastic solo work from Peter Bardens – an artist who'd later gain fame as the lead singer of Camel, but who's even more fantastic here on his own – working in a trippy blend of modes that's equally balanced between prog and psych! Bardens plays organ on most of the tracks, but he ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1982. (reissue)
One of the wildest sets ever recorded by Japanese guitarist Ryo Kawasaki – and that's saying a lot, given some of his other work! The vibe here is fusion, but with a definite 80s spacey twist that's hinted at by the cover – as Kawasaki handles most of the instruments himself, mixing ... LP, Vinyl record album
