Quantic Presents The Western TransientNew Constellation ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy Gatefold ... $31.99 35.99
A tremendous new project from Quantic – a set that has him moving into spiritual jazz territory, with all the depth and care he brought to previous funk and Latin projects! The music here is a mix of electric and acoustic modes – played by Will Holland on guitar with a group that also includes tenor, flute, trumpet, keyboards, moog, and some mighty nice percussion – all used in these warmly flowing ways that are totally wonderful – like some lost, underground 70s set on a tiny label by a local combo – performed with an understated brilliance that really holds us rapt! For a guy who could come on strong at times, Quantic seems to do even more by laying back a bit – and really letting the group energy flow on songs that include "Jumble Sale", "New Constellation", "Bicycle Ride", "The Orchard", "Mirzan", and "Latitude". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful vinyl pressing – limited, and in a heavy book-style cover!)
Also available New Constellation ... CD 10.99

✨✧ Hot 8 Brass BandVicennial – 20 Year Of The Hot 8 Brass Band (with bonus download) ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous tribute to one of the greatest brass bands on the Nola scene – a group who celebrate their 20th anniversary this year, and who are still going strong! The Hot 8 Brass Band have always been one of the funkiest groups on the New Orleans scene – and they've continued to win us over with their great releases for the Tru Thoughts label – records that take an old school street brass approach, and fuse it with some harder, funkier currents in the process – but all without ever losing any sort of Crescent City roots. And despite any fears you might have about tourist cliches, these guys are definitely far from that – as their approach is super-fresh, super-unique, and widely appealing to most fans of other funky styles too. The album features older recordings, remixed and reworked with sublime sound – and titles include great covers of "Sexual Healing", "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", and "Just My Imagination" – plus "Royal Garden Blues", "Get Up", "What's My Name", and "New Orleans After The City". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tubby HayesBBC Jazz For Moderns (with download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from British tenor giant Tubby Hayes – issued here for the first time ever, and material that's every bit as great as his famous Fontana Records sides from the 60s! These tracks are well-recorded gems from the BBC archives – material recorded by Hayes for a special program, and featuring a largeish group of top-shelf players who include Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Keith Christie on trombone, Johnny Scott on alto and flute, Vic Ash on tenor and bass clarinet, Harry Klein on baritone sax, David Snell on harp, and Gordon Beck on piano – all regular associates of Hayes, working as tightly here as on some of his best arrangements from studio dates of the 60s. There's a mix of modernism and solid soul that's pure Tubby all the way through – tremendous on his solo moments, but sparkling throughout as well – exactly the kind of record that will make you fall in love with his talents. Titles include "Early Morning Afterthoughts", "Down In The Village", "Souriya", "Take Your Partners For The Blues", and "Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun Ra & OthersMy Way Is The Spaceway – Space Poetry Vol 4 ... LP
Norton, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible chapter in the rich career of the legendary Sun Ra – tracks that blend together music and spoken word passages – the latter of which are usually in support of his unique philosophy of the cosmos! The titles here really give an idea of the thoughts within – "The Music Is Like A Mirror", "My Way Is The Spaceways", "The Music Is A Sound Image", and "The Music Is A Vibration" – all very long tracks that are spoken by Ra in this very powerful voice – with a presence that we don't always hear from him this well on record, often set to backings that feature reed work on flute or tenor sax, mixed with a bit of light percussion. These aren't just readings, or poetry mixed with jazz – but a great glimpse at the truly theatrical side of Sun Ra's presentation, served up beautifully here in this special package. LP, Vinyl record album
