LP ... About December 20, 2017
First volume of this set of duets between two of the great modern talents in improvised music. Recorded live at the Royal Hotel in London, in 1974.

... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Of Africa
Le Chant Du Monde/Super Sonic Jazz (Netherlands), 1974. (reissue)
LP ... About January 1, 2018
A groundbreaking set of work from the team of Jef Gilson and Hal Singer – a uniquely cross-cultural session recorded in the Paris scene of the 70s, and easily some of the best work ever from both musicians! Singer's probably best remembered on these shores for his older R&B tenor work of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contact/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972.
CD ... About January 20, 2018
A pretty unusual album, by an obscure player who's not to be confused with Charles Brown, the blues singer, or Chuck Brown, the leader of the Soul Searchers. This Charlie Brown is a tenor player – listed as obscure even in the notes to the session, a laidback set of soul jazz numbers which ... CD
Flight For Four
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969.
CD ... About January 20, 2018
Spectacular work from one of the most groundbreaking groups of its time – the legendary John Carter/Bobby Bradford Quartet – quite possibly the hippest thing going in the LA scene of the late 60s! The group includes Carter on alto and tenor, Bradford on trumpet – working together ... CD
Straight Ahead
Art Union (Japan), 1977. (reissue)
LP ... About December 15, 2017
A sweet set of Japanese jazz from the 70s – straight ahead, but with some great fusion undercurrents too – thanks to keyboards from Mikio Masuda, which electrify most of the tracks nicely! Takao Uematsu plays tenor throughout, and the group also features some great trumpet from Hitoshi ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bakishinba – Memories Of Africa
Polydor (Japan), 1970. (reissue)
LP ... About December 15, 2017
One of the funkiest records ever from Akira Ishikawa and his Count Buffalos band – a hip little groover that stands head to head with some of the best funky jazz from the US and Europe of the time! Despite Akira's earthy look on the cover, the record's got a relatively electric feel overall ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dogtown/Eremite, 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About December 1, 2017 (delayed)
A rare early session from vibist Khan Jamal – recorded with his Philly-based Creative Arts Ensemble collective! The group follows strongly in the spirit of similar combos from Chicago and St Louis – particularly the latter – and Jamal's group is working here in a mode that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazztime/Craftman (Japan), 1961. (reissue)
LP ... About January 20, 2018
Rare material from Dave Bailey – a set that's filled with fire, soul, and imagination – recorded as part of the drummer's amazing (and amazingly short) early 60s run as a leader! The date smokes with the same sort of energy as Dave's great "Gutter" albums for Epic – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
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
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
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

Freestyle (UK), 2017.
LP ... About December 15, 2017
One of the greatest albums in years from reedman Courtney Pine – a set that firmly reminds us just what an important part of the British scene he was many years back! In the years after the experimental waves of British jazz rock and avant jazz, Pine was a surprisingly strong voice in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Island/Monkey Dog (Germany), 1965.
CD ... About December 20, 2017
An incredible record from reedman Harold McNair – one of the key Jamaican jazz players who hit the London scene in the same post-colonial wave as Joe Harriott and Shake Keane – and maybe our favorite of the bunch! Harold's a hell of a talent on both tenor and flute – and although ... CD
