Pharoah Sanders

Welcome To Love
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1991. New Copy
Laidback, soulful work from Pharoah Sanders – a record that showcases a very different side of his talents than you might know from his classic albums on Impulse Records – but a side that's an equally great revelation overall! The album features mostly older jazz standards, blown by ... CD
Wide Hive, 2000s/2010s. New Copy 3LP
An incredible late-life chapter from trombonist Phil Ranelin – a musician who first flourished on the Detroit scene of the 70s, as part of the Tribe Records underground in that city – and one who dropped off the radar of most folks until a huge revival in the past two decades, spurred ... LP, Vinyl record album

Throttle Elevator Music with Kamasi Washington

Throttle Elevator Music IV
Wide Hive, 2016. New Copy
The best album so far from Throttle Elevator music – thanks to some fantastic saxophone from Kamasai Washington! The group was always pretty good before – but this time around, they really rise above their past – and also have Washington handling all the arrangements on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Throttle Elevator Music feat Kamasi Washington

Retrorespective
Wide Hive, 2016. New Copy
Not a retrospective of the music of Throttle Elevator Music – as you might mistake from the title – but instead a fresh new album that features the group working tremendously with the mighty Kamasai Washington! Washington isn't just a guest, but a key member of the group – and he ... CD
Wide Hive, 2019. New Copy
Beautiful large form work from Roscoe Mitchell – the famous saxophonist working here as a composer/conductor, but on music that's based on earlier improvisations created by his trio! The large ensemble has a really compelling blend of instruments – flutes, oboes, French horn, trumpet, ... CD
Wide Hive, 2013. New Copy
CD...$9.99 14.99
Very spare sounds from Roscoe Mitchell and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, but still very sharp-edged too – and in a way, a mix of deeper thoughts and spontaneous energy that reminds us a lot of some of the more "out there" moments of the Art Ensemble back in the 70s! Roscoe's reeds have ... CD
Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy 6 LPs
LP...$122.99 149.99
The early genius of John Coltrane – summed up perfectly on his albums for Atlantic Records! Coltrane was really going through some amazing changes here – picking up on some of his more modal and freewheeling solo expressions, while also able to hang back in some of the more soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Cunimondo Trio

Sagittarius (180 gram pressing)
Mondo/Music On Vinyl (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic album by one of the greatest funky keyboard players of the 70s! Frank Cunimondo may have never made it out of his native Pittsburgh during much of the decade, but albums like this will forever ensure that his name be known in the ranks of groovers everywhere! The album features Frank ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mondo/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful set of hipster jazz vocals! This legendary album by Pittsburgh pianist Frank Cunimondo has always been a favorite for the jazz-dance groover "Feelin Good" – a cut which has an incredible drum and bass riff, and which has been sampled more than a few times over the past ... LP, Vinyl record album

Comet Is Coming

Afterlife
Universal (UK), 2019. New Copy
A brilliant blast from The Comet Is Coming – their second album on Impulse in less than a year – and it's as exciting as anything they've done so far! Their core vibe of mixing spiritual jazz with electronic experimentation is here in full force, but they take it new directions. While ... CD

Prince Lasha Ensemble

Insight
Columbia/Dusty Groove, 1966. New Copy
CD...$6.99 12.98
Tremendous work from the legendary Prince Lasha – a rare UK-only date from 1966 – and one that has the reedman working away from more familiar contemporaries like Sonny Simmons and Eric Dolphy! The approach on this session is very unique – as Lasha includes harp with the ... CD

Doug Hammond

Ellipse
Idibib/Octave (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Quite possibly the rarest album ever from this great percussionist – and one of the most intimate, too – given that the record only features Doug Hammond on drums, percussion, and piano – alongside flute from Karen Joseph! The percussion alone is great, and handled by Doug with a ... CD

Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media

Head Rock (Japanese Record Day release)
Columbia (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A definite head rocker here – a brilliant bit of funky jazz from Japan, and a record that beautifully balances acoustic and electric elements! Jiro Inagaki plays some heavy tenor and soprano sax on the record – working with a combo that includes electric guitar, electric bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
HMV (Japan), 2015. New Copy (reissue)
Beautiful work from pianist Ryo Fukui – a relatively recent set, but one that sparkles with all the charm and imagination of his famous records from years back! The format is a familiar trio – with Takumi Awaya on bass and Itetsu Takemura on drums – but as always with Fukui, the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Baobab/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
A superb record from the great Lloyd McNeil – one of the more obscure players of the spiritual jazz generation of the 70s, but an artist who always gave us his best whenever he walked into the studio! Here, the mood is a mix of modal and Latin elements, with a definite current of influence ... LP, Vinyl record album

Synchro Rhythmic Eclectic Language

Lambi (with bonus tracks)
Moshe Naim/Sommor (Spain), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A really fantastic jazz project from early 70s France – but one that also features a strong contribution from Chicago percussionist Steve McCall – best known for his work in the Air trio, and as part of the AACM! The music is a very freewheeling mix of jazz and global elements – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sapporo/HMV (Japan), 1999. New Copy (reissue)
A smoking trio set from Japanese pianist Ryo Fukui – recorded in New York with help from Lisle Atkinson on bass and Leroy Williams on drums! The date's a bit later than some of the classics from the golden age of Japanese piano trio recordings, but has a very similar vibe – and in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hideto Sasaki

Stop Over
BBE (UK), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great group, and one we've never heard before – stepping out with some tremendous trumpet and alto work that really makes the album sparkle! The group's led by trumpeter Hideto Sasaki, and features alto from guest Sekine Toshiyuki – both working in a mode that's sharply angular, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tribe/Octave (Japan), 1974. New Copy
One of the most righteous albums ever issued by the always-righteous Tribe Records label of Detroit – a really collective effort, one that features ensemble vocals and spiritual jazz – all pulled together by pianist Harold McKinney! The album showcases a group named Voices Of The ... CD
Tribe/Octave (Japan), 1975. New Copy
An incredible session from the legendary Tribe Records scene – an equal effort from leader Doug Hammond and keyboardist David Durrah, who contributes some groundbreaking Fender Rhodes and moog work to the set! Hammond handles drums plus a bit of vocals and synthesizer on the session – ... CD
Spiritmuse, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The first record in many years from the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble – done with a lineup that features a variation from the original group, but a sound that's very much in keeping with their mission! The Ensemble were always dedicated to preserving a spiritual jazz tradition at a time when the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Doctor Umezu

Diva
NEC/Studio Mule (Germany), 1988. New Copy (reissue)
Kazutoki "Doctor" Umezu was always one of the more unusual Japanese saxophonists back in the day – not just a jazz musician, but a player who's open to a wide variety of styles – which you'll definitely hear here, in a cool collaboration with percussionist Midori Takada and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Glass Wing/Invisible City Editions (Canada), 1986. New Copy (reissue)
A very unusual shift for spiritual jazz in the 80s – a set that combines the acoustic energy of the 70s with some newer electric touches – all in a way that takes off with some soulful elements in the mix! Jeff Majors handles a harp – ala Dorothy Ashby – but the music mixes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Rubberband
Rhino, 1986. New Copy 2LP
Great lost work from Miles Davis – early material recorded for Warner Brothers in the mid 80s, and never released at the time – now finally uncovered from the vaults, and presented with a few slight contemporary touches! The core music is prime electric Miles funk all the way through ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy
Advice on life, love, and all things important – a series of readings by 60s Japanese celebrity Kazuo Yagi that will set your life straight – used as bridges to link together a set of swinging jazz music bits, some of which continue with speaking, others which groove on instrumentally. ... CD
Ultra Vybe/Takt (Japan), 1969. New Copy
The album's got a sexy little cover – but that's no surprise, considering that the record's a late 60s "Playboy Manual" from Japan! The format is quite weird – as each track begins with some Japanese spoken bits from Norio Maeda, possibly on the art of seduction – and ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A great lost slice of easy from Japan – sweet vocal tracks that are sort of a groovy take on the Hawaiian sound of the 60s! The tracks include a lot of Hawaiian standards, sung by the Living Voices in a mode that's occasionally gentle and dreamy, but which at other times has a surprising ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy
A sweet Japanese take on American easy grooves – an album originally issued in 1971 under the title Easy Listening Special, and featuring the vocals of Hiroshi Okazaki! Hiroshi sings in English, with a warm, mellow, and round sort of tone – not exactly soulful, but cool and almost ... CD

Electro Keyboard Orchestra

Electro Keyboard Orchestra
Columbia/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Electric keyboards galore – and a sweet 70s album from Japan! The set features a large group of Japanese keyboard players – all playing Korg synthesizers, in styles that range from laidback and mellow to upbeat and funky! The group's got core backing by a tight rhythm combo – ... CD

Herbie Hancock

Inventions & Dimensions
Blue Note, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
A really unique little record from Herbie Hancock – one that's almost completely improvised over Latin percussion! The setup is quite spare – and quite different than Herbie's other Blue Note work – and the group features improvised backgrounds by bassist Paul Chambers and 2 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alice Coltrane

Eternity
Warner/Antarctica Starts Here, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Seminal 70s work from one of the most righteous jazz musicians ever! On this set, Alice Coltrane moves past the rawer spiritual sound of her Impulse albums – working with a more focused vision and an approach to jazz that takes her way past the identity of just being "Mrs Coltrane" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A masterpiece of British jazz from the end of the 60s – a set that doesn't need to answer at all to any of the jazz styles coming from America at the time – as it's sound and vision is so bold, so unique, it's a completely massive statement on its own! The set may well represent the ... CD

Eric Alexander

Leap Of Faith
Giant Step Arts, 2019. New Copy
The great Eric Alexander in a trio mode – soaring out with a lot more space and soul than some of his albums with a pianist – and that's saying a lot, given the wonderfully soulful sound of that work too! The style is a mode that Alexander has explored a bit over the years, but which ... CD

Tenderlonious

Hard Rain
22A (UK), 2019. New Copy
A very different album than the previous Tenderlonious record – but a set that's still overflowing with the soulful sounds that made us love his music in the first place! Last time around, Tenderlonious worked with the 22A Arkestra – a group of labelmates that fleshed out his sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1971. New Copy
Killer Hammond from Polish player Piotr Figiel – a player with a really wonderful sort of groove! The album's got a vibe that's halfway between the Hammond antics of Alan Hawkshaw and the freer lines of American jazzmen like Jimmy Smith or Charles Earland – augmented by other cool ... CD
International Anthem, 2020. New Copy
Beautifully meditative music from Alabaster DePlume – a set that brings together work from a variety of recorded projects from the past decade or so – finally getting full exposure in this Transatlantic collaboration between Chicago's International Anthem label and London's Total ... CD

Hiroshi Sato

Orient
Kitty/We Want Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmed (Pat Thomas/Antonin Gerbal/Joel Grip/Seymour Wright)

Super Majnoon – East Meets West
OTOroku (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic group dedicated to one of our favorite jazz musicians of all time – legendary bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik, the musician who worked famously with Thelonious Monk, but also recorded some amazing experiments that mixed together jazz rhythms and elements of music from the Mid East! For ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reggie Andrews & The Fellowship

Mystic Beauty (180 gram pressing)
HME/Mad About Records (Portugal), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning set of modal soul jazz from the LA underground of the 60s – the only album we've ever seen by pianist J Reginald Andrews – and an earthy set that's filled with great tracks! The overall approach is piano and percussion plus horn bits – with Andrews on the keys, playing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Leaf (UK), 2017. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from Comet Is Coming – a record as heady as you might guess from its cover image! These guys have a really revolutionary way of combining jazz and electronics –using the latter at a way that never sacrifices the former – especially when you've got such great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe McPhee/Paal Nilssen-Love

Song For The Big Chief
PNL (Norway), 2019. New Copy
A set dedicated to the legendary drummer Sunny Murray – who passed just a few days before the recording of this live set, and who also gave the world a fantastic album with Big Chief as the title – but a record that's very much in the best sort of spirit you might expect from the great ... CD

Perception

Live At Le Stadium
Souffle Continu (France), 1977. New Copy
Unreleased live work from this fantastic French group of the 70s – a free jazz quartet, but one with a key difference – and that difference is the Fender Rhodes of Siegfried Kessler! Kessler's a monster on both electric and acoustic piano – which he uses on the set as well – ... CD
Strut (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
A fantastic album from Sun Ra and the Arkestra – one that we'd rank right up there with our favorites on the Saturn Records label! The work here has never been issued, and it's extremely beautiful, too – pulled from a few just-discovered studio sessions done after the group was parting ... CD

Gary Chandler

Outlook
Eastbound/Tidal Waves, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Maybe the only album ever issued under the name of trumpeter Gary Chandler – but a smoking little set that rivals some of the best jazz funk records at the start of the 70s – including heavyweight classics on Prestige by Melvin Sparks, Leon Spencer, and Boogaloo Joe Jones! The feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wolfgang Muthspiel/Scott Colley/Brian Blade

Angular Blues
ECM (Germany), 2020. New Copy
A record that's maybe one of the most tuneful, lyrical we've ever heard from guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel – and that may have a lot to do with the wonderful help in the trio from Scott Colley on bass and Brian Blade on drums! The tunes still have some of the abstract qualities of Muthspiel's ... CD

Snorre Kirk with Stephen Riley

Tangerine Rhapsody
Stunt (Denmark), 2019. New Copy
Drummer Snorre Kirk has a great musical partner here – tenorist Stephen Riley, who blows with this warm, raspy tone that takes us back to classic Ben Webster in the postwar years! The pace of most tunes is nicely laidback, but never in a way that's too sloppy or loose – as Kirk's combo ... CD

Jeff Parker

Suite For Max Brown
International Anthem/Nonesuch, 2020. New Copy
Mindblowing music from Jeff Parker – sounds that we always knew were part of his core, but which have maybe taken most of his career to emerge! This album follows beautifully from Jeff's previous album for International Anthem – and like that one, it's an explosion of new and old ideas ... CD
Roulette/Warner, 1960. New Copy
A lost treasure from Lee Morgan – three superb tracks that were initially issued as one side of a split record done with John Coltrane – at a time when neither of them were really signed to the Roulette Records label! That obscurity led both sets of material to quickly disappear from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Alternative Fox (UK), 1971. New Copy
A fantastic live performance from Alice Coltrane – and one that features a very heavy-hitting group, one that features both Pharoah Sanders and Archie Shepp on tenor, in a spirit that's as strong and righteous as Alice's Ptah The El Daoud album! The set features one long track – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Barron/Dave Holland Trio with Johnathan Blake

Without Deception
Dare 2, 2020. New Copy
This isn't the first time that pianist Kenny Barron and bassist Dave Holland have played together – but there's definitely something special about the record that really grabs our ears – and it's not just the excellent work on drums by Johnathan Blake! Barron's at his roundest, most ... CD
