Tompkins Square, Late 60s. 3CD
Guitarist Bola Sete made some of his most important American recordings of the 60s on the San Francisco scene – but this huge set of unreleased tracks captures the Brazilian player farther up north, as he works in a sweet set of trio recordings captured at a small club in Seattle! The music ... CD
Columbia/4 Men With Beards, 1972. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A beautiful live representation of the energy of the Bitches Brew years – one that has Miles Davis and the group really letting loose with free-flowing, modally-inspired lines – cooking up an incredible blend of acoustic and electric sounds at once! There's a bit of funk here, but not ... LP, Vinyl record album
International Anthem, 2021.
The first time we heard Jamire Williams, he was serving up an album of solo work on drums – but here, he's a completely different artist entirely – working at the helm of a large ensemble, and with the sort of jazz futurist spin and righteous vibe that makes this album a perfect fit for ... CD
Riverside, 1962. (reissue)
A vintage Holiday recording from The Staple Singers – a set recorded back in the group's earliest, rootsiest days! The sound here is quite spare – no surprise, given that the session was done by Riverside Records, at a time when the label was pushing the gospel-influenced quartet onto ... LP, Vinyl record album

Makaya McCraven

Deciphering The Message
Blue Note, 2021.
A really special album from our hometown hero Makaya McCraven – a set that's the drummer's debut on Blue Note, and which also has him bringing that label some of the magic that he's been cooking up for International Anthem! If you know Makaya's other records, you'll know that he works in a ... CD
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1974. (reissue)
The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts! Jean Carn isn't in the group this time around, but the set does feature a totally great twin-vocal approach – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s.
A wealth of vocal group work from the LA scene – not big pop hits of the period, but a great mix of doo wop, early soul, and rock harmonies all brought together with the kind of special presentation we've come to love from the folks at Ace Records! Some of these cuts come straight from the ... CD
Sam Records (France), Mid 60s. 3LP Gatefold
Amazing music by one of our favorite saxophone players of all time – captured here at the height of his 60s genius on the European scene! The tracks here have never been issued at all – but stand as a perfect complement to the killer MPS/Saba albums by Nathan Davis – and are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1960. (reissue)
One of the greatest Art Blakey Blue Note sessions of all time – and perhaps one of the greatest to realize the genius of the Jazz Messengers lineup that included Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano! The trio of young talents are at the height of their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Aerophonic, 2021.
We always love the work of saxophonist Dave Rempis in a relatively spare setting – and here, he sounds even more amazing than usual – working next to drummer Avreeayl Ra, in a mode that's got a wonderfully organic, spontaneous quality – one that maybe makes for some of the most ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sun Ra

Astro Black
Impulse/Modern Harmonic, 1973.
One of the darkest Sun Ra albums of the early 70s – and a set that's also a bit unusual in his catalog as well! The album was issued during Ra's run with Impulse Records – a period that mostly saw the label reissue previous records from the Saturn catalog – save for a rare few ... LP, Vinyl record album
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. 2LP Gatefold
Searing grooves from 70s Ghana – a set of tracks from the glory days of the Essiebons record label, mixed with a number of killers that weren't issued at the time! The music burns with a fire right from the start – and the package includes a fair number of really funky nuggets that not ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1970.
One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a ... CD
Barclay/Sam Records (France), 1956. (reissue)
A sweet little quartet session from the mid 50s – one of Chet Baker's legendary albums recorded in Paris at the time, with a quality that's nicely different from some of his work in the US! Part of that quality is the group – an unusual lineup that includes Gerard Gustin on piano, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzaggression (Finland), 2021.
Oiro Pena is almost a one-man spiritual jazz ensemble – given that most of the record's work on saxes, drums, piano, and organ come from leader Pentti Oironen – mixed with a few other contributions on other keyboards, bass, percussion, and guitar – all in a fantastic blend that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Okyerema Asante

Drum Message
Black Fire/Strut (UK), 1977.
A legendary album on the Black Fire label from the 70s – a set that features Ghanaian percussionist Oykerama Asante working in the same American mix of funk and spiritual jazz as his labelmates Oneness Of Juju! The set was recorded in the same stretch as the best work from that legendary ... CD

Latin Jazz Quintet (with Eric Dolphy)

Latin Jazz Quintet
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1960.
A extremely rare album that Eric Dolphy recorded with the Latin Jazz Quintet – a rare Latin-based side of Dolphy's career, and a set that's a bit different than the Prestige album by the same pairing! This set features a slightly different lineup of the LJQ – one that includes Louie ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1974.
A wonderful album from the great Cedar Walton trio that featured Sam Jones on bass and Billy Higgins on drums – a really beautiful group of musicians who completely transformed the sound of the piano trio in the 70s! The group played together often in the 70s, and they've never sounded ... CD
Specialty/Craft, 1955. 3 x 10 inch LP
Some of the earliest work ever done by the young Sam Cooke – served up here in a really special package! LP1 features early gospel recordings with The Soul Stirrers – a group that featured Cooke in the lead before he went solo – with titles that include "Mean Old World" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gregory Porter

Still Rising
Blue Note, 2021. 2CD
A really special sort of collection – one that features a fair bit of new material mixed in with some of the key cuts from the Blue Note years of singer Gregory Porter – an artist who started in jazz, but who's clearly had a huge impact on the world of soul music in recent years too! ... CD
