Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/1980s/Early 90s.
A mountain of music from the scene in Somalia during the 70s and 80s – all of it pulled from the vast archives of Radio Mogadishu, and showing a wonderful range of expression at the time! The music here is all pretty darn funky and soulful – as you'd expect from a collection on Analog ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. 2LP Gatefold
A huge collection of work from the great Lord Kitchener – maybe one of the most important singers to move the music of the Caribbean to British shores during the postwar years – a time when he was a strong voice to new waves of immigrants arriving in London, and when he was also making ... LP, Vinyl record album

Company (Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, & Others)

Trios By Company
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1983. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A really special instance of the creative collaboration that marked the legacy of the Company ensembles on the UK scene – a recording of various trio formations from a lineup of ten different improvising musicians – each showing an amazing ear for mixing sound and spontaneity, group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Now Again, 1970.
A fantastic slice of lost work from the legendary JBs – including the track that first got Bootsy Collins and company the job as James Brown's backing band! The set leads off with that gem of a groove – the fast funky "More Mess On My Thing" – a tune that's got the sort ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. 2CD
A great double header from Honest Jons – a 2CD set that brings together volumes 7 and 8 of their London Is The Place For Me series! Volume 7 is first – a fascinating look at musical modes in London during the big years of postwar immigration – a time when former residents of the ... CD
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2019.
The first full compilation issued by the Tropical Diaspora label – a relatively young company, but one with a great ear for picking up all the contemporary changes on the global underground! As you'd guess from their name, there's lots of music here that comes from cultures changing as they ... LP, Vinyl record album
Not Two, 2019.
A live take on the seasonal Mars Williams mix of Albert Ayler styles and Christmas music – but one that also expands the format a fair bit further, too – thanks in part to a really inventive lineup who help open up the music during the performance! The set features key work from Jaimie ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s.
A really loving look at a sometimes-forgotten side of the Prestige Records label – a company that's famous for giving the world plenty of hardbop and soul jazz in the 50s and 60s, but which also helped lay the groundwork for American spiritual jazz to come! Long before Impulse, Strata East, ... CD
Westbound/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
A massive celebration of the legendary Westbound Records – a Detroit record label started at the end of the 60s, and one that took the Motor City into much heavier territory than Motown! Westbound was the initial home of both Funkadelic and Ohio Players – and the imprint had a great ... CD
High Note, 2019.
A really fantastic album from tenorist Eric Alexander – a player we've always loved, but who really seems to be opening up some new sides in his music in the past few years! As you'd guess from the title, the album's in a classic "with strings" mode – Eric's tenor out front ... CD
Treader (UK), 2005.
Charlie Parker made some famous recordings with strings, and many other musicians followed his lead – but here, the alto genius John Tchicai takes the format in a completely different direction – by working not with violins and violas, but other instruments that provide a completely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. 2LP Gatefold
A fascinating look at musical modes in London during the big years of postwar immigration – a time when former residents of the crumbling British Empire were flooding to London for jobs and a better way of life – often bringing along a huge amount of cultural experience in the process! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Z Records (UK), 2019. 2CD
A heavy duty set of remixes from the great Joey Negro – a collection that's very much in the spirit of his Remixed With Love series – in that it features Joey's own soulful take on a variety of different dancefloor grooves! As with that series, many of the tracks here are older club ... CD
Crashing The Party, Late 50s/Early 60s.
Think Rudy Ray Moore was only the king of 70s raunch? Think again – as Rudy has a heck of a long career, one that stretches back to the R&B years of the 50s! This set does a great job of looking back at that under-documented period of Rudy's career – and features a wonderful batch ... LP, Vinyl record album

Teruo Nakamura

Unicorn
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1973.
A landmark album from the Japanese fusion scene of the 70s – a killer set of tracks recorded by bassist Teruo Nakamura, with help from a host of American soul jazz luminaries! The album's easily one of Nakamura's most sought-after sets – and for good reason too, as the cuts are long ... CD
Rampart/Minky, 1960s/1970s. 4CD
A fantastic overview of the legendary Rampart Records – one of the strongest soul labels on the LA scene of the 60s, and a company that did some surprisingly compelling work in the 70s too! Rampart's biggest-ever act was Cannibal & The Headhunters – and the set is titled after ... CD

Mike Selesia

Flavor
Mad About Records (Portugal), 1976.
Plenty of flavor here – a really well-crafted brew that's heavy with searing saxophone from Mike Selesia – mixed with other rootsy instrumentation in a very groovy way! Mike plays soprano, tenor sax, and flute on the set – clearly inspired by the John Coltrane generation, yet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1971.
Killer Hammond from Polish player Piotr Figiel – a player with a really wonderful sort of groove! The album's got a vibe that's halfway between the Hammond antics of Alan Hawkshaw and the freer lines of American jazzmen like Jimmy Smith or Charles Earland – augmented by other cool ... CD

Hugh Masekela

Live In Lesotho
Matsuli (UK), 1981. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
It's a strange thing to see Hugh Masekela sitting on a horse, out in a field – and the cover hardly gets at the energy that's going on inside – since the album features a full, funky live performance from the famous trumpeter – at a time when his group included piano and keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album

Masayuki Takayanagi & New Direction For The Arts

Free Form Suite
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1972.
A really compelling set from this important Japanese group of the 70s – a quartet headed up by guitarist Masayuki Takayanagi – but which features a very complex balance of work from all the individual members! The set initially begins with a traditional vibe, but then seems to step out ... CD
