Black Unity Trio

Al-Fatihah
Salaam Records/Gotta Groove, 1969. Gatefold (reissue)
Amazing spiritual jazz treasure – the only album ever issued by this obscure avant trio from the Cleveland scene – a group that includes a young Abdul Wadud on bass and cello! The style is nicely loose and open, but also very different than the sound of the AACM at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Jahari Massamba Unit (Madlib & Karriem Riggins)

Pardon My French (2020 Black Friday Release)
Madlib Invazion, 2020.
A tremendous collaboration between Madlib and drummer Karriem Riggins – both artists who are great enough on their own, but who really hit some new territory in this funky instrumental project! Riggins plays live drums, and Madlib throws in all this other instrumentation that really changes ... LP, Vinyl record album (Deep Funk LP)
Smoke Sessions, 2020.
Eric Reed steps out here in a strong array of modes – solo, trio, and quartet – all of which really show the depth he's developed in recent years – a strong step forward from the already-great territory of his earlier records! The pianist really knows how to balance his talents ... CD (Jazz CD)
Theresa/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1981. (reissue)
One of the most interesting records we've ever heard from pianist Joe Bonner – a set that still has all the long, spiritual lines of his excellent albums from the 70s – but which also showcases Bonner's ear for larger arrangements – as he brings in trumpet, trombone, flute, and a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Stanley Cowell, Billy Harper, & Others

Such Great Friends (180 gram pressing)
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1983. (reissue)
A lost bit of late Strata East – and an all-star session that never lets up! The album's a quartet effort – led by Stanley Cowell, but equally featuring participation from Billy Harper on tenor, Reggie Workman on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – all soaring together on long tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Elektra, 1995. 2LP Gatefold
A rare all-instrumental version of the very first album from ODB! Pressed up here like a rare promo release – with versions of "Shimmy Shimmy Ya", "Baby C'Mon", "Brooklyn Zoo", "Hippa To Da Hoppa", "Rawhide", "Damage", "Don't ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s/1970s.
Maybe the coolest entry so far in this excellent series – and proof that the Mr Bongo label has gone much farther in recent years than it ever did in the past! Years back, Bongo was known as a hotbed of Latin and Brazilian music – but the sounds here are also rare funk and soul, other ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)

Manu Dibango

Negropolitaines
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 90s.
A really great project from the legendary saxophonist Manu Dibango – a set that's almost a return to more rootsy territory after his more upbeat grooves of the 80s – even though Manu was always a bit more of a hybrid player overall! The set was originally issued in two different ... CD (Global Grooves CD)

Kraftwerk

Soest Live
Innerspace (UK), 1970.
Rare early work from Kraftwerk – a live performance done at a time when the group was maybe more tied to the freakier, fuzzier side of the German scene than some of their later spare electronics – stepping out here on long tracks that really show a great ability to jam in an extended ... CD (Rock CD)

Various

Tokyo Dreaming
Sony/We Want Sounds (UK), Early 80s.
A great dip into the wide world of Japanese pop in the early 80s – a set that does a nice job of bringing in some elements from the world of jazz, and showing just how much a range of electric modes flowed together in Tokyo at the time! Some of these artists were doing more offbeat work, ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Verve, 2020. (pic cover)
Unreleased work from Jon Batiste – and a set that pays tribute to the roots and traditions that inspired his music! The set begins with the tunes "Work It Out" and "I Need You" – then moves into the title cut "We Are", which was done with help from the St ... 12-inch, Vinyl record (Jazz 12-inch)
Impulse, 2020. (pic cover)
A really full-on track from Comet Is Coming – a cut that has all the cosmic touches of their other work, but which also features vocals from Joshua Idehen – who's got this dark, bold vibe that really seems to send the group over the top! The cut may well be the most sonically intense ... 12-inch, Vinyl record (Jazz 12-inch)

Horace Tapscott

Songs Of The Unsung
Interplay/Survival Research (Australia), 1978. (reissue)
Solo piano work from the magical Horace Tapscott – a blend of original compositions, plus work by hip composers like Cal Massey and Elmo Hope – key modern jazz talents with whom Tapscott genuinely shares a lineage! Tapscott's got the usual fluid touch on the keys – opening forth ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Piero Umiliani

Lounge Side
Rambling (Japan), Late 60s.
Sublime soundtrack work from one of our favorite Italian composers – the mighty Piero Umiliani – a man who gave the world plenty of weird sounds over the years, but who could also come up with a really dreamy sort of groove! Most of this work is a mix of jazz and bossa with some of the ... CD (Soundtracks CD)

Legendary Beyons

Legendary Beyons
Albina Music Trust, 1977. (reissue)
Damn great work from the Legendary Beyons – a soul group from late 70s Portland, but one who could easily go head to head with some of the hipper New Jersey and Philly acts of the early part of the decade! The group have fantastic harmonies – and are able to serve them up on these ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Daniel Humair

Drum Thing
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 2020.
Fantastic work from drummer Daniel Humair – a hugely important creative musician, still very much at the top of his game! Humair was one of the first European percussionists to really set his instrument free from conventions of timekeeping – to open up more possibilities for melody, ... CD (Jazz CD)

Tom Ze

Raridades
Warner (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s.
A fantastic collection of rare work from the young Tom Ze – obscure tracks from 7" singles, compilations, and festival performances too – all brought together as a counterpart to his full length albums on the Continental and RGE labels! As singles, a few of these tracks are maybe ... CD (Brazil CD)
Columbia/Get On Down, 2002. 2LP
An early oughties classic – with an appearance by Tupac from beyond the grave – plus guest work from Alicia Keys, Bravehearts, and Kelis – on tracks that include "Revolutionary Warfare", "Hey Nas", "Zone Out", "Made You Look", "Get ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Verve, 2020.
A really unusual piece of vinyl – and one that revisits a concept we haven't seen used in many many years! The record features parallel grooves on each side – so that the record holds two different songs that play through but right next to each other – so that you're not sure ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Round/ATO, 1990. 4LP (reissue)
A full Sunday afternoon performance by the Jerry Garcia Band – which also includes banjo work from Bela Fleck! The entire set list for both shows is presented here – recorded straight from the board at the concert, with excellent sound – as the group make their way through "R ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
