Morton Subotnick

Silver Apples Of The Moon
Nonesuch/Karl (UK), Late 60s. (reissue)
LP ... About May 15, 2020
Classic electronic score by Morton Subotnick, an LP that was, as the label says, the "first original full-scale composition created expressly for the record medium." One long work, divided in half, and featuring some of Subotnick's best early computer music work! LP, Vinyl record album

Asha Puthli

L'Indiana
Dash/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
A little more disco than some of Asha Pulthi's earlier releases – but still pretty darn nice stuff, handled in that spacey European mode that made her CBS records sound so compelling. Asha's still got that unique voice – kind of a mix of porno sleaze and Munich soul – and the ... CD

Seven Seas

Miami Sound
Glades/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
A rare Miami funky combo – one of the more obscure groups from the TK Records universe in the 70s! Arrangements are by Mike Lewis – and titles include covers of "Do It (Til You're Satisfied)", "Fight The Power", and "Swearin To God" – plus the funky ... CD

Kat Mandu

Kat Mandu
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
Stretched out TK disco – no real surprises, but pretty strong all the way through, with lots of moogy bits and cool keyboards, Latiny percussion, and an instrumental approach that keeps things from getting too hokey. Tracks are all long – and titles include "The Break", " ... CD

Jo Bisso

Love Somebody
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
Disco grooves, but with a definite difference – given that Jo Bisso had previously worked on the Parisian club scene, and brings a special flourish to this American album from the late 70s! Jo sings lead vocals on the side-long "Love Somebody" – a tune that builds strongly as ... CD

Voyage

Fly Away
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
The second US album from Euro disco outfit Voyage – a group who manage to bring in some nice progressive and jazzy elements to the mix! There's almost a jamming rock-gone-disco approach to a few of the best numbers – thanks to a strong use of heavy guitars and keyboards, and a real ... CD

Tempest Trio

Tempest Trio
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
The one and only album from Tempest Trio – a sweet disco side project from Detroit funk masters Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore! The trio's got that three-female vocal approach used by many other disco acts at the time – but served up over rhythms that definitely echo the earlier work ... CD

Celi Bee

Blow My Mind
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
Celi Bee picks up a few 80s touches for this album – mixing her usual disco groove with some slight Eruo electro touches – adding in a nice dose of darkness to the set! Celi's still got an undeniably strong talent for a catchy tune – the kind of vibe that first made us fall in ... CD

Jimmy Bo Horne

Goin Home For Love
Sunshine Sound/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
A wicked set of groovers from Jimmy Bo Horne – produced with a snapping KC & The Sunshine Band groove, and proof that the Miami sound could still burn strong at the end of the 70s! The tunes are a mix of mellow numbers and funkier tracks that have a snapping "spank" sort of ... CD

Jimmy Bo Horne

Dance Across The Floor
Sunshine Sound/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About May 27, 2020
Jimmy "Bo" Horne was one of TK's best dancefloor artists during the late 70s – and during his time on the label, he cut lots of tasty little groovers, like this one, that had a good club sound but with a bit more soul than the label's bigger disco hits. Titles include "Get ... CD

Richie Beirach, George Mraz, Al Foster

Elegy For Bill Evans
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
... CD

Lorez Alexandria

From Broadway To Hollywood
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
An ultra-hip record from Lorez Alexandria – one of her grooviest albums ever, and a set that was only ever issued in Japan! The set features Lorez hitting some of the hippest, most rhythmic modes of her career – working with jazzy backing arranged by Gildo Mahones and Art Hillery, ... CD

Johnny Hartman

Live At Sometime
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
A rare 70s album from the legendary Johnny Hartman – an intimate live set that has the singer at his mature best – working with just Roland Hanna on piano and George Mraz on bass! Titles include "Summertime", "On A Clear Day", "The Way We Were", "Littl ... CD

John Scofield

John Scofield
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
A pretty rare set from guitarist John Scofield – and a pretty great one too! The album was originally issued only in Japan, and it features Scofield playing with a quartet that includes Clint Houston on electric and acoustic bass, Motohiko Hino on drums, and Terumasa Hino on trumpet on a few ... CD

Jack DeJohnette

Jackeyboard
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
A very unusual early album from Jack DeJohnette – one that has him playing piano and melodica, instead of drums – on long trio tracks that have George Ohtsuka on the drum kit and Mitsukaki Furuno on bass. Tracks are all nice and long – and include "McCoy's Tune", "F ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
Lovely lovely work from Irene Kral – a Japanese-only session from the 70s, and one of her best efforts from the time! Irene's vocals have never sounded better – strong and confident, but not in a cloying way that gets in the way of the tunes – working with a piano trio led by ... CD

Donald Bailey

So In Love
Trio (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
One of the few albums we've ever seen by jazz harmonica player Donald Bailey – a Japanese date with Hideo Ichikawa on piano and some guest tenor from Hideyuki Kikuchi on two tracks! CD

Dollar Brand/Don Cherry/Carlos Ward

Third World – Underground
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
A stunning little session – and every bit as wonderful as you'd expect from a lineup that includes Dollar Brand, Don Cherry, and Carlos Ward! The three players work together here in open, spiritual styles – with really long-flowing lines from Brand on piano, in a more modal style that's ... CD

Dave Burrell & Motoharu Yoshizawa

Dreams
Trio (Japan), 1973.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
Beautiful work from pianist Dave Burrell – a set recorded with Japanese bassist Motoharu Yoshizawa, with Dave playing a bit of percussion too! The set was recorded live, with two long tracks – "Red/Black" and "Green/Day Dream". CD

Cecil Taylor Unit

Akisakila
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
A classic Cecil Taylor set from the 70s – a record only issued in Japan, but one that grew to have a reputation as one of his strongest live performances from the time! The double-length set features a continuous performance of one number – "Bulu Akisakila Kutala" – ... CD
