180g (UK), 1970s.
A fantastic document of the lost funk legacy of 70s Japan – music that's often different than the jazz and pop work of the decade that sees greater reissue, and which shows a very strong influence from the American scene! The rhythms here are wonderful – sometimes in the best funky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ken Rhodes

Profile
Amayana/Sconsolato (Germany), 1974. (reissue)
That's Ken Rhodes, not Fender Rhodes – but the acoustic pianist is more than funky enough on his own – even without any electricity in the mix! The set's got this wonderful rhythm duo – drummer George Greene and bassist Joachim Knauer – who often come on with this really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Janko Nilovic & The Soul Surfers

Maze Of Sounds
Broc (Switzerland), 2020.
A great pairing of funky talents old and new – 70s sound library legend Janko Nilovic on keyboards, and the totally hip Soul Surfers combo on rhythms – providing these great backdrops for some surprisingly wonderful work on organ, piano, and Rhodes from Janko! We'll confess, we didn't ... CD

Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella

People Need People
Schema (Italy), 2021.
A more spiritual soul-based setting than usual for the talents of Nicola Conte – a long-awaited full length set, served up after a host of 12" single collaborations with Gianluca Petrella! Petrella's presence is felt in the way the tunes unfold – often with strong contributions ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1961. (pic cover)
Never-issued work from the Sun Ra Arkestra – and two tracks that really show just how much the initial wave of their sound tied together with other strands of postwar music! Both cuts here feature vocals from singer Ricky Murray – and as you can tell from the titles, there's a slightly ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
An ear-opening set of Japanese jazz from a time when that nation's scene was really taking off – a period in the 70s when all sorts of new artists and new ideas were really flying around – and leaving behind a huge recorded legacy that's been mostly out of reach for us in the west! ... CD
Tidal Waves, 1963. (reissue)
The first-ever issue of this rare live set from the legendary Thelonious Monk Quartet of the 60s – the same group that cut some incredible albums for Columbia Records, sounding equally great here in a concert setting in Paris! The group features tremendous tenor work from Charlie Rouse ... LP, Vinyl record album
Colemine, 2021.
The future's brighter than the recent past – thanks to the spirit embraced here by the folks at Colemine Records – one of many labels who weathered the storm of 2020, and who see much brighter days ahead in the years to come! Colemine survived by stripping things down, and digitally ... CD

Henry Franklin

Skipper
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1972.
One of the greatest moments ever from west coast bassman Henry Franklin – a set of soaring, spiritual power – and a key demonstration of his rich energy as a leader! Franklin heads a wicked lineup here – playing both Fender and acoustic bass amidst other players who include Bill ... CD

Alessandro Alessandroni

E Il Suo Complesso
Sonor (Italy), 1970s. (reissue)
A gorgeous bit of bossa jazz from Italy – and a key non-soundtrack album from the great Alessandro Alessandroni! The session's a bit more jazz-based than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack work from the 60s, but in a good way – one that really opens up the tunes, and provides for some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Voilaaa (Patchworks)

Voicii
Favorite (France), 2021.
We've loved the music of Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart in all its many forms for years – but over time, this Voilaaa project might well be our favorite – as it really gives Patchworks a way to blend past and present, while also reaching out over the space of the globe! As before, ... CD
Monsterrat House, 2021.
A record that comes as a real surprise – a concept that might not work if you were to just read the title – but one that opens up beautifully on the album! Part of the record's success might be the fact that The Archives are a group from the same Washington DC scene that once was home ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
A true revolution in Cuban music – not the familiar cha cha and pachanga modes of the pre-Castro years, but instead the huge wave of fresh styles and combinations that sprung up in the years to come! The tracks here aren't the kind of Cuban sounds that are locked in time by the all-star ... CD
Daptone, 2021.
The Menahan Street Band are always pretty exciting to our funk-trained ears – but this time around, there seems to be a little something extra in the mix – a sound that has all these great little strange twists and turns around the edges, while still keeping all the mellow funk of the ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 60s.
A really groovy set of tracks – not just the French cha cha promised by the title, but instead this beautiful mash-up of sounds and styles – often with results that are pretty darn unique! Sure, the rhythms are Latin, and the language is French – but there's also strands of crime ... CD

Don Glori

Dawn Calling
Nothin Personal (UK), 2021.
A really great record from the Melbourne scene – a record that's got kind of a "jazz plus" vibe – in that it mixes live jazz instrumentation with some work on edits and a few electric touches – all in a style that's very much like some of our favorite London work in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shintaro Nakamura with Shunzo Ohno

Evolution (2LP x 45rpm pressing)
Street Noise/BBE (Japan), 1984. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Soaring piano lines, burning trumpet solos, and soulful tenor sax – all wrapped together beautifully in this obscure Japanese session from the 80s – a date that has all the free-thinking power and unbounded energy of some of our favorite American soul jazz sessions from a decade before! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hotlanta/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974.
One of the greatest albums of southern soul from the 70s – a set we'd put right up there next to the Soul Children albums on Stax, or the new sound that was brewing up down at Malaco! Jimmy Lewis is an artist who never fully got his due – but he wrote and produced the whole set, at a ... CD
Hot Casa (France), 1987. (reissue)
The title proclaims "highlife is back" – but it's also pretty darn funky here, thanks to a strong dose of influence from American soul music! In fact, the highlife quality is a bit more subdued than usual – still some great guitar lines, criss-crossing in nice ways – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Russell

Talk To My Lady
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1973.
Some of the hippest sounds we've ever heard from pianist Gene Russell – an album that features heavy use of Fender Rhodes – and a soulful, solid, rhythmic core that comes from the basslines of Henry Franklin, guitar of Calvin Keys, and drums of Ndugu Chancler! The set's one of the ... CD
