Avishai Cohen

Big Vicious
ECM (Germany), 2020.
Trumpeter Avishai Cohen has given us many great records over the years, yet this time around, he seems to be cooking up something extra-special – an album that still echoes some of his older ideas, but which maybe has a bit more warmth, and a bit more unity – qualities that seem to come ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1971.
CD ... About June 3, 2020
A never-issued live set by one of the coolest European funk bands of the 70s – the legendary Placebo – not the current group, but a vintage ensemble that features wicked work on Fender Rhodes from the mighty Marc Moulin! The 1971 date of the set places it before the combo's famous ... CD
Peer/P-Vine (Japan), 1974.
CD ... About June 3, 2020
Sublime sound library work from mid 70s Australia – one of the greatest records ever from soundtrack genius Sven Libaek, done in collaboration with a host of the greatest Aussie jazz players of the time! The groove here is laidback, but funky – almost dreamy at times, in the manner of ... CD
Paula/P-Vine (Japan), 1972.
CD ... About June 3, 2020
Harmony soul heaven – and the only full album from The Montclairs! The group were a sublime vocal group from the 70s – one with a sound to rival The Whatnauts or The Moments, but which also had a bit more of the super-dope touches you'd expect from their look on the cover of the record ... CD
GEC/P-Vine (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About June 3, 2020
The classic first LP by this stellar Chicago harmony group – and a monster! Heaven & Earth had a wonderful falsetto harmony sound that reminds us a lot of east coast winners like Blue Magic or The Stylistics – and like some of the best east coast groups, this group's vocals work ... CD
Chi Sound/P-Vine (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About June 3, 2020
A wonderful album by one of the last great vocal groups to come out of Chicago – a harmony quintet to rival the greatness of any the east coast had to offer! Although recorded for the smoother-sounding Chi-Soul label, the album's got an approach that's quite similar to some of the best east ... CD

Brighter Side Of Darkness

Love Jones (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
20th Century/P-Vine (Japan), 1973.
CD ... About May 15, 2020
A tremendous bit of harmony soul from Chicago – one of the few cases where the Windy City really gave the east coast a run for its money – and the landmark album from teen soul quartet Brighter Side Of Darkness! Although young, Brighter Side managed to bring a depth to their work that ... CD

Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers

My Ebony Princess (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
Pi Kappa/P-Vine (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About May 15, 2020
An east coast harmony classic from Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers – a sweetly-voiced young soul group with a really positive sound! Jimmy and the group have a groove that's more mature than some of the other young soul acts to emerge in the wake of the Jackson Five – and the ... CD
Hot Wax/Demon (UK), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About April 25, 2020
A stone burner from 100 Proof Aged In Soul – a group who really take off with this tight second record! The album's a classic from the days when soul music ruled AM radio on both sides of the tracks – and the rest of the album is equally great – packing that tight post-Motown ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sydney Joe Qualls

So Sexy (180 gram pressing)
20th Century/Demon (UK), 1979. (reissue)
LP ... About April 25, 2020
An incredible blend of southern and modern soul – the second album by soul songwriter Sydney Joe Qualls, recorded in both Chicago and Muscle Shoals, with a stone mellow sound that's outta site! The groove here is extremely well-done – tight, but never too slick – and with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1970. (reissue)
LP ... About April 25, 2020
Fantastic album of funky instrumentals, recorded in the heart of the Chicago soul scene in the seventies. Includes the classic track "Loose Booty", with the "professor" spoken bit on the intro, which was sampled by the Beastie Boys. Other nice tracks include "Soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Blackman

Don Blackman
Arista/Expansion (UK), 1982.
CD ... About April 10, 2020
A jazz funk masterpiece, and THE record by the legendary Don Blackman – the only one issued under his own name for many many years, and a famous little set that's been sampled endlessly over the years, and for good reason! The vibe here is one that's barely been matched again – a blend ... CD

Muriel Grossmann

Jazzman (UK),
CD ... On May 15, 2020
... CD
Vertigo/Alucard (UK), 1970. (reissue)
LP ... About April 3, 2020 (delayed)
The amazing first album from Gentle Giant – a crucially overlooked group from the key years of the UK jazz-rock scene! The album definitely comes at things from a rock perspective, but there's a hell of a lot of fusion in the mix too – especially in the guitar and keyboard parts, which ... LP, Vinyl record album


Polydor/Anagram, 1970.
CD ... On May 15, 2020
Mandrill's first album of funky Latin jazz and soul – a landmark in crossover styles that still sounds remarkably fresh today! Unlike later records, which feature a tighter funk sound, this one has the band jamming out in a Latin-inflected mode that sounds like some of the best Chicano bands ... CD

Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media

Funky Stuff
Columbia (Japan), 1974. (reissue)
LP ... About May 27, 2020
Funky fusion from 70s Japan – a really great set that's heavy both on Fender Rhodes, and on a range of choppy reed lines on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The set's got a warm glow that's perfect for the CTI generation – with an equally apt sense of space, one that keeps the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Harriott

Southern Horizons
Jazzland/Down At Dawn (Italy), 1960. (reissue)
LP ... About May 8, 2020
Excellent! This record is one of the lost chapters in the career of the great British alto player Joe Harriott. The session was recorded before Joe's experimental "Abstract" release, and way before his "Indo Jazz Fusions" experiments – but it's still an excellent session ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolando La'Serie/Cortijo Y Su Combo/Ismael Rivera

Danger Do Not Trespass
Rumba/P-Vine (Japan), Early 60s.
CD ... About April 22, 2020
Tracks include "Moliendo Cafe", "Severa","Sola Y Triste", "Yo Te Contare", "El Mar De Lima", "Los Carreteros", "Maria Conchita", and "El Pescador" and many others. CD

Cortijo Y Su Combo

Quitate De La Via, Perico
Rumba/P-Vine (Japan), Early 60s.
CD ... About April 22, 2020
Classic material from Cortijo's legendary combo with Ismael Rivera on vocals – one of the first records to really showcase the great sounds coming from the Puerto Rican scene in the early 60s! Rhythms are plenty lively – as Cortijo's group has the same sharp focus as the early Joe Cuba ... CD

Cortijo Y Su Combo Con Ismael Rivera

Bueno, Y Que?
Rumba/P-Vine (Japan), Early 60s.
CD ... About April 22, 2020
Damn hard to go wrong with Cortijo at this point in his career – as records like this are razor-sharp, all the way through! The cooker features excellent vocals from a young Ismael Rivera – who's already got this transcendent quality that points towards larger Latin dimensions to come ... CD
