Right On/Modern Harmonic, 1971. (reissue)
An amazing setting for the righteous words and message of Nikki Giovanni – as the set has the poet working with backing vocals by the New York Community Choir, who also recorded a great soul album on RCA around the same time – and an overall approach that elevates Nikki's poetry into a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quantic & Nidia Gongora

Almas Conectadas
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2021.
A beautiful collaboration between Quantic and Colombian singer Nidia Gongora – a set that's got a depth that we hardly would have imagined from Quantic's music at the start! Make no mistake, we've always loved Quantic's records – and he's gone farther than most of his contemporaries in ... CD

Mario Rusca

Monochrome Blues
Mono Jazz (Italy), 2021. 2LP Gatefold
The first record we've heard in years from Italian pianist Mario Rusca – and a set that really lives up to the strength of all of his classic material from back in the day! The album's a beautifully recorded set – done in mono, which seems to bring an even richer quality to the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee & Gerry Brown

Still Can't Say Enough
Blue Note (Japan), 1976.
Great work from John Lee and Gerry Brown – a pair of fusion stalwarts who added key help to a number of classic 70s sessions for other artists – and got to make a rare few albums like this on their own! Lee's on bass and Brown's on drums, and the pair are in perfect time throughout ... CD

Ennio Morricone

Danger Diabolik
Sycodelic/Audio Clarity (UK), 1968. (reissue)
One of Ennio Morricone's wildest soundtracks – a unique mix of guitars, electronics, and some very mod orchestrations! The feel here is a darkly futuristic one, but it's not without a touch of camp – and Morricone more than rises to the occasion with help from conductor Bruno Nicolai, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gino Marinacci

Atom Flowers
Roman/Mono Jazz (Italy), 1972. Gatefold (reissue)
Mindblowing sounds from Gino Marinacci – a 70s Italian jazz flute player, and one who's got a vibe that's very different than most of his American contemporaries! Gino really likes to go for a cool compressed tone on his instrument – often creating these warm waves of sound that are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestra Poly Rythmo De Cotonou

Vol 4 – Yehouessi Leopold Batteur
Albarika Store/Acid Jazz (UK), 1978. (reissue)
A stunner of an album from this legendary group – hard and funky right form the start, with these long tracks that have the TP Orchestre showing that they can jam just as hard and long as Fela Kuti & Afrika 70 – but in a very different way! The percussion is great, the guitar lines ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note (Japan), 1968.
A wonderful session by Andrew Hill – recorded in 1968, but issued only briefly in 1981 – and out of print for years! The session is a key one in understanding Hill's work – as it's a bridge between the arch modernism of his early Blue Note sides, and the more soul-oriented ... CD

Kazemede George

I Insist
Greenleaf, 2021.
The first-ever album by a musician we're sure to be hearing from in years to come – an incredibly rock-solid record, and one that will definitely put the name of tenorist Kazemede George on the map! George has a pan-cultural approach to his music – with strong influences from Cuba and ... CD
Edition, 2021.
A really great album from drummer/keyboardist Nate Smith – and that's really saying a lot, because we loved his last one quite a bit! As before, Nate is in wonderfully collaborative territory here that moves way beyond familiar jazz – with plenty of soulful elements in the mix, and ... CD

Lou Donaldson

Midnight Sun
Blue Note (Japan), 1960.
A killer from Lou Donaldson's early hardbop years at Blue Note – recorded right during his classic run of albums for the label, but not issued until many years later! There's a sweet bounce to most tracks here – the kind of vibe that Lou had most famously on his Blues Walk album – ... CD
Mood Mosaic (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. 2LP Gatefold
Don't be put off by the cheesy look of the cover – as the set's filled with cool, classy funk rarities – a really wonderful selection of tracks that features plenty of gems that work perfectly here together! The long-running Mood Mosaic series has been at it longer than most – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Odc (Italy), 1980. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The classic debut from Change – and the start of an amazing run of groovers in the early 80s! The set's got a tight, jazzy feel throughout – a stripped-down approach to disco modes, with the same focus on the basslines that you'd find in work by Chic – but a style that's almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nikki Giovanni

Like A Ripple On A Pond
Atlantic/Modern Harmonic, 1973.
A tremendous little record from a time when whole new ideas of righteous pride and power were hitting the record racks – a moment that's perfectly summed up in a treasure like this! Poet Nikki Giovanni had already gotten some acclaim for her words on paper – and here, the message of ... CD

Robson Banda & The New Black Eagles

Soweto
Nyami Nyami (France), 1986. (reissue)
A classic set from Robson Banda & The New Black Eagles – a group who were shining bright on the scene in Zimbabwe in the 80s, and work here with an upbeat groove that's not unlike some of the best South African work of the time! Rhythms are usually uptempo, but never too fast – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brainfeeder, 2021. (pic cover)
That's a spooky cover on this single from Hiatus Kaiyote – and they definitely bring some of that energy to the title tune "Canopic Jar" – a track that begins with a bit of a horror introduction, and moves into some of the eeriest funky soul we've heard from the group! The ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mood Mosaic (Italy), 1970s. 2LP Gatefold
A very groovy entry in this all-great series – a set of compilations that have been giving us really wonderful funk for many years, and which just seems to get better and better with each new entry! The tracks here are a hip mix of styles – not just familiar funk and soul sources, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luv'd Ones

Truth Gotta Stand
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s.
A very hip group from the Michigan scene of the 60s – an all-female outfit, but one with a sound that's a lot more raw than the sweet girl group sounds you might be expecting! The Luv'd Ones have a great way with a bassline and sinister guitar riff – at a level that often gives these ... CD

Ronnie Foster

Cheshire Cat
Blue Note (Japan), 1975.
Wicked keyboards from Ronnie Foster – and a set that really steps forward from his previous two Blue Note albums! The record really has Ronnie moving into a more rounded soul space – singing along with his keyboards, in ways that may well be aimed at making Foster the next Stevie ... CD
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s.
A really cool little package, and one that looks at the rise of reggae on the African scene of the 70s – including many tracks that mark a moment before that big 80s wave of African-based superstars that rose up to larger global fame! The cuts here are maybe a bit more homegrown and unusual ... LP, Vinyl record album
