International Anthem/P-Vine (Japan), 2017.
CD ... About February 5, 2018
Raw sounds from the Chicago scene – a mighty nice performance from the group of drummer Makaya McCraven – captured on four track cassette at the tiny Danny's Tavern! The setting and recording style really works with the approach of the group – as Makaya's drums are nice and loud ... CD (Jazz CD)
Kissing Fish (Japan), 2017.
CD ... About February 5, 2018
The music here is sharp as a diamond – thanks to great production and mixing from Yuki "T-Groove" Takahashi on all the cuts! Tunes are by a variety of artists, and are mostly in a soulful club style – upbeat, positive, and overflowing with great energy – never too ... CD (Neo Soul CD)
Binary
Sweet Soul (Japan),
CD ... About December 13, 2017 (delayed)
A slightly different vibe than usual for Wonk – maybe more soul than jazz overall, but with that criss-crossing style we love so much in their music – just expanded strongly by the presence of Love Experiment! The beats are chunky, funky, and cut with lots of spacey elements – ... CD (New Grooves CD)
Parallel Uni-Verses (colored vinyl)
Gold Dust, 2009.
LP ... On February 2, 2018
Heiro hero Del The Funky Homosapien teams up with Artifacts and Weathermen veteran Tame One to trade rhymes – with production by Parallel Thought – a solid set and another winner on the Gold Dust Media label, which is put out a number of classic era reverent records to date! The beats ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Factory/Mute, 1982. (reissue)
LP ... On March 16, 2018
One of the last albums ever recorded by A Certain Ratio – done at a time when the group was really putting a lot of funk and soul into their style – learning to play their instruments a bit more like the soul artists who inspired them, and acting less like the punk musicians they first ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Columbia/Omnivore, 1969.

Elektra/Anti, 1973. (reissue)
LP ... On March 9, 2018
The debut of Tom Waits – a prettier, less gravelly-voiced and less knowingly seedy effort as the albums to come – and a set that's as tender as any that Waits would ever record! This is Waits in after hours yearning mode, still upright on a barstool or a piano bench, not yet having ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Wisdom/Sabiduria
Ropeadope, 2018. 2LP
LP ... On February 2, 2018
The genius of Eddie Palmieri never seems to dim at all as the years go on – and, if anything, the genius only seems to flower even more – finding new ways of expression that maybe even blow away some of Eddie's classic work from the 60s and 70s! This set is amazing – a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin LP)
Message From Garcia
Dawn/Modern Harmonic, 1956. (reissue)
LP ... On February 16, 2018
One of the few sides ever cut as a leader by guitarist Dick Garcia – a hipper than usual batch of tracks done with the same concern for freshness that graced most of the best jazz sides on the Dawn label during the 50s. Garcia's the lead soloist in varying groups that include players like ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Starday/Modern Harmonic, 1962. (reissue)

Hog Fat
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
A pretty cool little album – one of those early messed-up albums on the Flying Dutchman label, cut when the company was saying "f this" to concepts of genre, and throwing together a lot of strange elements in the course of a single record. Drummer Gordon leads a group that includes ... CD (Jazz CD)
Oh! Calcutta
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
Very groovy album of short instrumentals, played by a groovy group of studio musicians that includes Emil Richards, Dennis Budimir, Plas Johnson, and Tom Scott. The track list is very hip, and includes stuff like "Oh! Calcutta!", "I Am Yellow", "Ballad Of John & ... CD (Jazz CD)
Hot Coles
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
A surprisingly great little album – despite a very stupid cover! The concept of the "Coles" in the title is that all the songs on the record are Cole Porter compositions – but unlike other Porter tribute records, which are fairly traditional, Manne takes the tracks in a hip ... CD (Jazz CD)
El Exigente
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
An excellent album from Chico Hamilton – one that picks up on his odd rhythms and grooves of the late 60s, and really trips them out even more! Chico's group is a quartet, with Arnie Lawrence doing some incredible work on electric alto sax, and Bob Mann adding in trippy guitar fills that ... CD (Jazz CD)
Stomp Off Let's Go
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
It's the mid 70s and Stitt's backed here by an electric group, but the sound is fairly straight, not as funky as other recordings from the era, and the tracks are long, with Stitt and crew taking long solos. The group features Jon Faddis and Lew Soloff on trumpet, Louis Bellson on drums and ... CD (Jazz CD)
Are You Ready?
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
One of the few albums ever cut by saxophonist Harold Alexander – and a nice little live date that has the leader really stretching out on soprano sax and flute! The tracks are super-long – and in addition to great read work from Alexander, the set also features smoking piano from Neal ... CD (Jazz CD)
I'm In The Mood For Love
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
Despite the title of this one – which makes the record sound like a mellow sleepy effort – the style of the record is in that faster disco jazz mode that Groove was using towards the end of his years at Flying Dutchman. The record's got some expansive arrangements that include ... CD (Jazz CD)
Onsaya Joy
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
One of Holmes' all time massive recordings, featuring the great groovy title track – "Onsaya Joy" – a monster jam that goes on for fifteen minutes, and doesn't stop grooving at all! Very tough to find these days, but totally worth the price. A solid jammer, and better than ... CD (Jazz CD)
Paint Your Wagon
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
Ostensibly a set of tracks from the musical Paint Your Wagon, this album's actually a great batch of short groovy numbers by Tom Scott, recorded with all the fire and energy that makes these early albums for Flying Dutchman so great. Tom's at the front of a lively quartet, and his reed playing is ... CD (Jazz CD)
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
Pretty full-on fusion by Steve Marcus – much more jamming and uptempo than some of his earlier releases, but still pretty stripped-down and powerful nonetheless! Steve's playing electric soprano sax on most of the record – in smaller groupings that include players like Steve Khan, Don ... CD (Jazz CD)
Skull Session
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
A beautiful bit of funky jazz – and one of the unsung gems in the early 70s Flying Dutchman catalog! Oliver Nelson leads a number of different groups that are filled with funky electric players – like Mike Wofford, Lonnie Liston Smith, and Denis Budimir – and the record's filled ... CD (Jazz CD)
3 Shades Of Blue
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
An excellent late Johnny Hodges album that mixes his supreme talents with two of the other big stars of the Flying Dutchman label – Oliver Nelson and Leon Thomas – both of whom contribute wonderfully to the set! Nelson arranged the whole album, and gives it the groovy feel of some of ... CD (Jazz CD)
Leon Thomas In Berlin
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
Great stuff from Leon Thomas' classic period – and a 1970 recording of a concert in Germany that features work by Oliver Nelson on alto sax. The rest of the group's a quintet, with piano, bass, conga, and drums – but the real star of the set is Leon Thomas, who again displays amazing ... CD (Vocalists CD)
