Group Sounds Four & Five

Black & White Raga
Jazz In Britain (UK), Mid 60s.
A fantastic group from the British scene at mid 60s – music from a time when the UK world of jazz was exploding from the work of artists like Joe Harriott and Tubby Hayes, but also held some other tremendous talents as well! The group here has trumpeter Henry Lowther and tenorist Lyn Dobson ... CD
Parafono (UK), 2021.
We always love the music of British tenor saxophonist Nat Birchall – but here, he's in an even more amazing setting than usual – really stretching out in a live format, and working with two Greek musicians who really bring a lot to the performance! In addition to these long, spiritual ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tubby Hayes

Free Flight
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1972. 2CD
British tenor giant Tubby Hayes left the planet all too soon – passing away at the age of 38 in 1973 – but right up to the end, he continued to blow away most of his contemporaries – as you'll hear from this set of unreleased live material from 1972! The recording is from a time ... CD

Kirk Lightsey & Rudolph Johnson with The All-Stars

Habiba
Gallo/Outernational (UK), 1974. (reissue)
Maybe the hippest record ever issued by pianist Kirk Lightsey – in part because the set was issued on a South African label, and also because it features tremendous work from saxophonist Rudolph Johnson – who you'll know for his two classic 70s albums on the Black Jazz imprint! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Thomas & Matana Roberts

Truth (180 gram pressing)
OTOroku (UK), 2020.
A fantastic meeting between pianist Pat Thomas and alto saxophonist Matana Roberts – recorded live in London, and showing an amazing sense of sympathy between the two improvisers – even though they're normally separated by the space of an ocean! Thomas has these really dark, moody ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Jazz In Britain (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
Rare work from the hippest years of British jazz – music that starts in that late 60s time when English musicians were really finding their own sort of voice – as heard famously in the Landsdowne Series of recordings, and other key albums at the time! Yet the tracks here are from those ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Davis

Q Vision
Qtime, 2021.
Drummer Quincy Davis has a very visionary approach here – music that makes a bold statement for his role as a leader, as Davis works here with three different groups on a strong set of original material! The mix of players is wonderful – shading in and adding voice to Quincy's music in ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. 2CD
A deep dig into the farther reaches of the exotica boom of the late 50s – served up with the same sort of focus on unusual tracks that we love on the other collections from Lux & Ivy! Given the raunchy sound of The Cramps, you might not expect the duo to have as strong of an ear for the ... CD

Holdsworth/Warleigh/Mathewson/Spring

Warleigh Manor – The Ron Mathewson Tapes Vol 1
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1979.
Really unique work from legendary guitarist Allan Holdsworth – a return to much more adventurous jazz music after years of famous material in a rock-fusion mode – working here alongside reedman Ray Warleigh – who is also at his most expressive as well! The tapes were recorded ... CD
RR Gems (Estonia), 2020.
There's nothing quiet about the way that Muriel Grossman approaches her music – as the saxophonist is one of the boldest, strongest voices in jazz in the past decade – one of the key proponents of the new spiritual underground, and a player who just seems to win us over more and more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Curtom/Rhino, 1972. (reissue)
Curtis Mayfield's lasting classic – and an album that the world will remember forever! Apart from being his hugely successful entry into the blacksploitation soundtrack field, this album's also a monster set of grooves that includes some of Curtis' funkiest work ever – a record that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diego Rivera

Indigenous
Posi tone, 2021.
Diego Rivera's a hell of a tenorist – and he plays a bit of soprano too – packing a heck of a lot into just a little bit of space, almost with the mix of hardbop and soul jazz we'd hear from 60s favorites like Benny Golson or Jerome Richardson! As with both of those artists, Rivera's ... CD

Kellee Patterson

Kellee (with bonus track)
Shadybrook/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976.
Kellee Patterson's amazing first album for the Shadybrook label – a total killer all the way through, and much harder and heavier than any of her later sides for the label! The record's got a nice jazzy vibe that's a good bridge between her earlier work on Black Jazz, and her later, ... CD

Wild Tchoupitoulas

Wild Tchoupitoulas
Island/Jackpot, 1976. (reissue)
A great slice of New Orleans soul from the 70s – a record that replicates the "Indian" culture in the Mardi Gras scene – and which is most notable for featuring work by The Meters as well! The groove here is kind of Meters-styled funk, mixed with some fuller New Orleans mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse (Japan), 1971.
Wonderful post-Paris work from Archie Shepp – a record that has him bringing more focus back into his work after sessions overseas – and also making some great use of the legendary Joe Lee Wilson on vocals! There's a feeling here that's a real change for Shepp, but a great one too ... CD
Blue Note, 1961. Gatefold (reissue)
A wonderful title for this rare fourth album from Tina Brooks – as the set was recorded by Blue Note in 1961, but had to wait for many decades to finally get reissued! Don't let that put you off, though, as the set's every bit as sublime as Tina's classic True Blue album for the label – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino, Late 60s. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of those few classic cases where a compilation of tracks was maybe even more influential than the original music itself – as this early 70s collection of 60s material turned out to shape and influence generations for decades to come! Guitar genius Lenny Kaye put the set together famously ... LP, Vinyl record album

Underflow (David Grubbs/Mats Gustafsson/Rob Mazurek)

Instant Opaque Evening (180 gram pressing)
Blue Chopsticks, 2021. 2LP
A fantastic collaboration between three of the most creative improvisers on the planet – an extended live set that's even better than the studio outing the group gave us on their debut! The lineup here features David Grubbs on guitar and voice, Rob Mazurek on piccolo trumpet and electronics, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alexia Bomtempo

Suspiro
Ropeadope, 2021.
A set recorded in Brooklyn, but one with plenty of Brazilian spirit in the music – served up in a mix of English and Portuguese lyrics, with a breathy sort of charm that really takes us back to the 60s! The album's more jazz vocals than bossa nova, but definitely has some of the latter ... CD
