Brian Jackson

This Is Brian Jackson
BBE (UK), 2022.
A stunning revival for the great Brian Jackson – an artist who's best known as the keyboardist with Gil Scott-Heron in the 70s, but a hell of a singer on his own – as you'll hear in this really wonderful set! The album's not Jackson's first solo effort – but it may well be the ... CD

Monday Michiru

Enso
Sonic Image, 2022.
A set with maybe the most striking cover image that Monday Michiru's given us in years – and a record that really delivers on that promise, too – filled with really captivating tunes that represent a new high level in Monday's already-high career! There's a depth and maturity to the ... CD

Rosinha De Valenca

Um Violao Em Primeiro Plano
RCA/Tres Selos (Brazil), 1971. (reissue)
A great little set from female guitarist Rosinha De Valenca – a player who worked briefly with Sergio Mendes in the mid 60s, and who sounds incredible on this rare album from 1971! Rosinha's got a light touch on the acoustic guitar – one that steps off nicely from a legacy of earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2003. Gatefold
Two reed geniuses, working together in sublime formation – an extended, open live performance setting – which makes for incredible interplay throughout! There's a beautiful balance between unity and conflict going on here – Evan Parker and Joe McPhee both blowing soprano and ... CD
Favorite (France), 1970s/Early 80s.
Fantastic jazzy funk from around the globe – a whole host of tracks that draw heavily on the American electric modes of the early 70s, then take them into all sorts of new and creative directions on their own! The biggest change from US to global modes here is the rhythms – as the cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Seu Jorge

Cru
Tres Selos (Brazil), 2005. (reissue)
The sound of global soul in the 21st Century – and an amazing set from the soon-to-be legendary Seu Jorge! Jorge's possibly best known for his appearances in films over the past few years – like The Life Aquatic or City Of God – but take it from us, he's one of the greatest ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ike Noble & The Uptights

Look A Little Higher
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
Southern funk from the end of the 60s – served up by a great little combo that features the raspy voice of Ike Noble in the lead, and some great backings from the well-named Uptights! The tracks here are on the rawer side of the Stax Records sound – gritty and groovy, with that great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Penza Penza

Neanderthal Rock
Funk Night, 2022.
A masterpiece in fuzzy funk from this large Estonian collective – a group who work here with sharp production from Misha Panfilov, with a sound that's every bit as weird and wonderful as all the other projects he's given us over the years! The group do a wonderful job of blending psychedelic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Perceptions
Mercury (Japan), 1978.
Charles Earland really soars to the heavens here – working in a style that's very different than his early jazz albums on Prestige, but which still features plenty of great solo moments too! Earland's key partner in crime here is the great Randy Muller – the man behind the sound of ... CD

Carlos Fire Aguasvivas

Eclipse Of The City
Sticky Buttons (UK), Late 70s. (reissue)
An album with a really unique sort of pedigree – tracks that were recorded in the garment district of New York during the mid 70s, then later collected into a full album that was pressed up by singer/guitarist Carlos Fire Aquasvivas – who also did all the artwork for the cover in pen! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boardwalk/Iconoclassic, 1981.
A sweet early 80s set from the Ohio Players – one that's a bit different than their 70s hits, but in a way that also shows that the group were still very much in wonderful form! At a point when these guys could have easily stood still, and just kept churning out the kind of grooves that ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2022.
Really great work from Positive Force – a group who gave the world a rare groove classic back in the 80s, and who return here with fresh material that's every bit as great! The last time around, their lead singer was Denise Vallin – and here, the lovely Leslie Page steps up to the ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s.
A set that's even weirder and more wonderful than you might guess from the title – not really psychedelic at all, but music that takes off into the farther reaches of the electronic experiments that were begun on the German scene in the 70s! There's a blend of analog and digital electronics ... CD

Dredd Foole & The Din

Songs In Heat (with bonus tracks)
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1982. Gatefold
A rare lost gem from the Boston scene of the early 80s – and a set whose "Din" features work from members of Mission Of Burma! Dan Ireton is Dredd Foole, and has a raw, moody way of putting over the vocals – strongly in the American post-punk tradition of the time, with a ... CD

Thiago Franca

Sambanzo – Etiopia
Tres Selos (Brazil), 2012.
A mindblowing criss-crossing of modes – a heavily percussive set that brings together Brazilian and Ethiopian inspirations, and which also has a strong current of jazz too – which makes the whole thing feel like some lost spiritual session from many years back! Thiago Franca himself ... LP, Vinyl record album
Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. 2CD
A hugely expanded version of this classic album from Joe Gibbs – in a 2CD set that adds in 32 bonus tracks, 20 of which appear on CD here for the first time ever! The core album is one that's really telegraphed by the image on the cover – a 1979 gem that brings together a host of ... CD

Weekend

La Variete
Rough Trade/Lantern (Italy), 1982. (reissue)
A classic album of jazzy tunes from the British pop scene of the early 80s – and the kind of work that really helped set the stage for the later Acid Jazz movement in London – but which is equally enjoyable as one of the loveliest moments in the post-punk generation! Weekend's a combo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Today/Octave (Japan), 1972.
Fantastic ballad soul from one of the greatest groups from the east coast 70s scene! Black Ivory may not have scored as big as some of their contemporaries on the charts – but to fans of harmony soul, they'll always be kings, and this record is the sort that forever gave them keys to the ... CD

Shintaro Nakamura with Shunzo Ohno

Evolution
Street Noise/BBE (Japan), 1984.
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! ... CD

Robin Jones & His Quintet

Denga
Apollo Sound/Jazz Room (UK), 1971. (reissue)
A hell of a record of Latin Jazz – recorded in the UK, but with a vibe that puts the whole thing right up there with some of the most inventive American albums of a few years before – such as Latin jazz classics by Sabu Martinez, Cal Tjader, or Eddie Palmieri! Robin Jones is the leader ... LP, Vinyl record album
