Ken Rhodes

Profile
Amayana/Sconsolato (Germany), 1974. (reissue)
LP ... About February 20, 2021
That's Ken Rhodes, not Fender Rhodes – but the acoustic pianist is more than funky enough on his own – even without any electricity in the mix! The set's got this wonderful rhythm duo – drummer George Greene and bassist Joachim Knauer – who often come on with this really ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

SBB

SBB
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1974.
CD ... About February 1, 2021
Fantastic work from SBB – a legendary Polish trio who were in an equal space between prog rock and fusion! All three musicians are incredibly skilled – clearly with the talents of jazz musicians, but set loose in much more freewheeling modes – although the strength of the record ... CD (Rock CD)

Jessica
Vistone/Mo Jazz (UK), 1974. (reissue)
LP ... About April 2, 2021
A wonderful mix of soul jazz, funky rhythms, and even more experimental moments – a truly tremendous effort from LA drummer Roy Porter, and the first set issued under the name of his Sound Machine group! The groove here is really unconventional – filled with unusual timings, phrasings, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Roy Porter

Inner Feelings
Vistone/Mo Jazz (UK), 1975. (reissue)
LP ... About April 2, 2021
A crazy bit of funk from drummer Roy Porter – a player who first rose to fame during the LA bop years of the late 40s, but who sounds even hipper here in the 70s! The album's got a madly skittish approach to funk – one that's highly rhythmic, but often in unconventional ways – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Greyboy/Knowledge Room, 1994. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
The debut album from the Greboy Allstars – a live group, and one that works in contrast to the funky beats that Greyboy was producing on his own – but at a level that still shares an equally strong love of the best sounds of 70s funk! These guys were very early in the deep funk game ... LP, Vinyl record album (Deep Funk LP)

E Il Suo Complesso
Sonor (Italy), 1970s. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
A gorgeous bit of bossa jazz from Italy – and a key non-soundtrack album from the great Alessandro Alessandroni! The session's a bit more jazz-based than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack work from the 60s, but in a good way – one that really opens up the tunes, and provides for some ...

Ngozi Family

45,000 Volts
Now Again, Mid 70s. (reissue)
LP ... On January 22, 2021
Heady work from the Ngozi Family – a Zambian rock band that was the first to be dubbed as "Zamrock" – a cool fusion of older African rhythms and 70s rockish modes – never too polished, but with a tightness that might have made Anglo groups up in London sit up and take ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)

Hamiet Bluiett

Bearer Of The Holy Flame
Black Fire/Strut, 1983.
CD ... On January 22, 2021
A great set from Hamiet Bluiett – almost back to his roots in the St Louis underground scene, as the album's a live recording of long spiritual jazz tracks, arguably a lot more compelling than most of Bluiett's studio work from the time! The album was recorded at Sweet Basil in 1983 – ... CD (Jazz CD)

Island/Jackpot, 1976. (reissue)
LP ... On January 22, 2021
A great slice of New Orleans soul from the 70s – a record that replicates the "Indian" culture in the Mardi Gras scene – and which is most notable for featuring work by The Meters as well! The groove here is kind of Meters-styled funk, mixed with some fuller New Orleans mode ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

The music does have some of the dark tinges promised by the title, but this is less the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks LP)
Bronze/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
A record with a stunning cover by the great Roger Dean – and a stunning sound to match – one of the few sets ever issued by Paladin, a group who are a bit more hard-rocking than the Yes-like cover image might imply – but who also let loose with some great prog touches as well! ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
Fine funkdafied early 70s tracks from the Upsetters, produced by the great Scratch Perry. Mostly instrumentals, and like the best of the pre-Black Ark year, filled with percolating rhythms showered with rolling organ and jaunty guitar. 14 tracks in all, including "My Girl", "Do ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae LP)
Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
A searing debut from Black Heat – one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s, and a tight little group with a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk and New York heavy! The album's got a bit of vocals – figuring in on about half the tracks – but the main ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Mango/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1982. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
A New Chapter, indeed! New Chapter In Dub is one of Aswad's definitely one of his best records of the early 80s – and it's actually right up there with some of his best work, period. The title is an apt one, as it leads the way for modern dub – serving as a blueprint of what would ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae LP)
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. (reissue)

An amazing meeting of two of the most revolutionary talents on the European jazz scene of the early 70s – American expat Sahib Shihab, blowing some of his most exotic reeds ever – and pianist Jef Gilson, working here on electric keys and ondioline! The album's got a sound that echoes ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
One of the most striking albums ever from French experimentalist Jef Gilson – and one of the most outside as well! The album's from the same vintage as some of Gilson's world jazz experiments on the Palm label, but the overall feel here is much more free – with Jef working on a fuzzy ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Tidal Waves, Early 80s. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
A fantastic little record from Jerome Brailey and Mutiny – a set cut after their 2 famous albums for Columbia, but arguably even better! The groove here is still heavy on the P-Funk of Brailey's roots, but is delivered in a way that's even more stripped down, and almost with less cliche than ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Bubbha Thomas

Life & Times
Tidal Waves, 1985. (reissue)
LP ... On January 22, 2021
Drummer Bubbha Thomas lays down a set of modern funk tracks, most with a drum machine providing the backing, and with a lot of slap bass in that 80's funk style. Some cuts have vocals by a male or female singer, but most of the groove is instrumental. Cuts include "Livin On Love", " ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Pye/BMG, 1970.
CD ... On January 22, 2021
An album that maybe marked the close of one chapter of The Kinks, and the start of another – music that still holds on to some of the best elements of their late 60s Village Green era, but which also moves the group into some of the headier territory of their Muswell Hill/RCA years too!

A lesser known legend of Nine Inch Nails lore, except for long time fans and gamers – Trent Reznor's score for the classic first person shooter videogame Quake – done in the mid 90s when NIN was at a near peak in mainstream popularity, but in hindsight, a clear indicator that Reznor was ...

One of the only albums as a leader from bassist Henry Grimes – a hell of a great player who'd made his name working with Sonny Rollins, but who steps out here into much freer territory!

Columbia/Get On Down, 1959. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)

The mid 90s classic from Underground Kingz – they're commerical breakthrough, with all the uncompromising grit of their first few records on the lyrical tip, albeit with a stripped down soulful resonance to a lot of beatcraft. The gritty rhymes is the unifying element here, with tracks that ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)

Di Doo Dah
Fontana/Light In The Attic, 1973. (reissue)
LP ... About January 22, 2021
Sweet sweet work from Jane Birkin – an early solo set that steps strongly off of her classic duets with Serge Gainsbourg! In a way, this album's as much a record by Serge as it is by Jane – since Serge wrote almost all the tracks, and since the arrangements are handled by the legendary ...

A lost bit of dreamy bossa from the 60s – recorded in Brazil at the end of the decade, but unavailable to most of the world for years! The session's got a gently snapping, always jazzy approach that easily matches the best takes on the bossa coming out from Rio and LA at the time – and ... CD (Brazil CD)

Pharoah Sanders

Wisdom Through Music
Impulse (Japan), 1973.
CD ... About January 20, 2021 (delayed)
Soaring spirits and joyous jazz-based expression – an overlooked treasure from Pharoah Sanders – and proof that his work on Impulse Records just kept on getting better and better! The style here is a bit tighter than some of the previous Impulse albums – no side-long tracks here ... CD (Jazz CD)

Pharoah Sanders

Jewels Of Thought
Impulse (Japan), 1969.

Fantastic spacey sounds from Conrad Schnitzler – all recorded at Peter Baumann's Paragon Studios, right around the same time as Schnitzler's trio of Con albums in the late 70s!

Twin alto sax work from the leaders – blowing here together with a really rich sound that almost feels like some of Phil Woods alto-heavy dates from years back, but with a vibe that's more 70s Japanese as well!

An interesting session for Waldron – more of a free wheeling soul jazz set than his usual work from the 70s, featuring a quartet with Clifford Jordan on tenor, Cecil McBee on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. Jordan's tenor lines dominate the set – not as tightly woven as on some of ... CD (Jazz CD)

Excellent little album of funky tracks, with a tight choppy guitar sound, a polished studio drum sound, and some weird sax and synth bits. There's lots of nice groovers here that you wouldn't expect to be great – like "Check It Out (At the Disco)", which has a good rolling bassy ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

That's London, Ontario – not London, England – which means that the group have an even more far-flung sound than you might expect! The album's a brilliant and overlooked gem from the Canadian scene of the 70s – really mindblowing music by a group who are equally great at grooving ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Incredible late work from the great West African dance band Vis-A-Vis – a brilliant set from 1977 that demonstrates good and well why the band were so greatly in demand both live and in the studio! The group had spent quite a bit of time backing the great Ghanaian singer K. Frimpong in the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)

One of our favorite albums ever from the legendary trumpeter Lee Morgan – a set that Blue Note recorded in the mid 60s, but didn't show the world until almost two decades later!
