Jeremy CunninghamWeather Up There ... LP
Northern Spy, 2020. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
The first full length set we've heard from drummer Jeremy Cunningham – and a set that's bound to set him on a fantastic legacy of recordings for years to come! The album is both very personal and politically powerful – put together by Cunningham in response to the loss of his brother during a home invasion – and delivered with a mix of modes, instruments, and collaborational effort that's very much in the best spirit of the inventive recordings on the International Anthem label! Cunningham doesn't just drum – he's also the leader of a larger, shifting lineup of musicians – also playing electric piano and percussion, working with a unique "drum choir" that also includes Makaya McCraven, Mike Reed, and Mikel Patrick Avery – and opening things up for the guitar of Jeff Parker, bass of Matt Ulery, saxes and keyboards of Josh Johnson, and bass and keyboards of Paul Bryan. And if that's not enough, the record also features contributions from Ben LaMar Gay on vocals, Jaimie Branch on trumpet, and Tomeka Reid on cello – all very sympathetic partners to Jeremy's mix of instrumentation, production elements, and other unique details. Titles include "1985", "Return These Tides", "The Weather Up There", "It's Nothing", "Elegy", "Sleep", "The Breaks", and "All I Know". LP, Vinyl record album

Amirtha Kidambi Elder OnesFrom Untruth ... LP
Northern Spy, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Mindblowing music from Amirtha Kidami – an artist who's part of the forefront of contemporary spiritual jazz, but who has a sound that's unlike anyone else we've ever heard before! Kidami sings and plays both harmonium and synthesizer – using both instruments in these strange, offbeat ways that are both ancient and future at once – carving out slow-flowing waves of sound that merge the vocals and keys, while her group really expands out with imaginative energy – soprano sax and a bit of moog from Matt Nelson, bass from Nick Dunston, and drums and "electronic sensory percussion" from Max Jaffe. Titles include "Decolonize The Mind", "Eat The Rich", "From Untruth", and "Dance Of The Subaltern". LP, Vinyl record album

Amirtha Kidambi Elder OnesHoly Science ... LP
Northern Spy/Jazzman (UK), 2016/2020. New Copy ... $24.99
A stunning debut from a really unique New York quartet – a group who explore spiritual jazz territory, but in a mode that's different from anyone else we can think of! The group's led by Amirtha Kidambi – who both sings, and plays harmonium – and creates these loose structures for the rest of the group to explore – a lineup that features Matt Nelson on soprano sax, Brandon Lopez on bass, and Max Jaffe on drums – players who can really improvise along with their leader's sense of inspiration, but never lose direction or the energy of the tunes! There's a strong modal energy to the album, which shifts between players – sometimes coming from the harmonium lines, or the saxophone riffs, or the pulsation of the bass, or even the vocals – as other players then take off in freer moments over the top. The set features two long tracks – "Treta Yuga" and "Kali Yuga". LP, Vinyl record album
(First-ever vinyl release – and in a very cool flipback cover!)
