RR Gems (Estonia), 2020.
LP ... About November 15, 2020
A really beautiful record, and one that's a bit hard to describe – but which is summed up perfectly by the "Soft Power" name of the group! The music is a mix of jazz and other instrumental modes – with some currents of keyboards and guitars that almost take us back to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Units
Takt/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1969. (reissue)
LP ... About November 10, 2020
Some of the most arch-modern work we've ever heard from Japanese reedman Akira Miyazawa – proof that even though he was one of his nation's greatest straight jazz sax players in the 60s, he could also open up experimentally too!

LP ... About October 30, 2020
A classic 70s session from Frank Lowe – done with a really raw feel that reminds us of his well-remembered work for ESP!

A strange and obscure album by this saxophonist who's probably best known for his work with Steve Lacy.

LP ... On November 6, 2020
One of the greatest Sun Ra records from the early 80s!

Horizon
Saturn/Strut (UK), 1971.
LP ... On November 13, 2020
An amazing live date from Sun Ra & The Arkestra – recorded in Cairo in 1971, with a very transcendent sound overall! Ra and the group are clearly inspired to be working in the shadow of the pyramids – and their music sometimes has Eastern overtones, a bit in the manner of Salah ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vinyl Lovers, Early 70s.
LP ... About November 13, 2020
Excellent early live work from jazz rock titans Nucleus! The material gets to heart of all we love about the early years of the group – with muscular jazzy interplay, to moody and slow building grooves, to lumbering psyche jazz frenzy and back again. Ian Carr's trumpet is out front, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

A lost bit of late Strata East – and an all-star session that never lets up! The album's a quartet effort – led by Stanley Cowell, but equally featuring participation from Billy Harper on tenor, Reggie Workman on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. The overall feel is a lot like Harper's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Theresa/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1979. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2020
A great little record – not so much for Kelly's keyboards, but for some killer sax work by Pharoah Sanders, who's the "friend" listed in the title! A few cuts are going for a smoother funky sound, but the record has a great version of "Got To Have Freedom" that's done at ... LP, Vinyl record album

A blinding session by Blakey! Truly one of his all-time great ones, and a record we've been putting on the turntable for 20 years, still always with new delight!

Joel Ross

Who Are You
Blue Note, 2020.
LP ... On November 20, 2020
Beautiful work from vibist Joel Ross – a player who's just starting to blossom as a leader, and who's clearly on the right path!

LP ... About November 25, 2020
Sublime spiritual jazz from Strata East – one of the label's rarest recordings, and one of its hippest too!

LP ... On November 27, 2020
A strange little record – but one with some very groovy moments!

Don borrows heavily from the styles of Martin Denny, Bobby ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lightyear, 1997. 2LP (reissue)
LP ... On November 27, 2020
Late live material from Grover Washington – previously unreleased, and proof that the saxophone master was still plenty darn soulful towards the end of his career!

Philips/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1955. (reissue)
LP ... On November 27, 2020
An important early export from the Dutch jazz scene of the postwar years – a volume of Jazz Behind The Dikes, a series that focused on the best up-and-comers of the Netherlands scene! The album goes a bit farther than some of the piano trio sessions issued under the series, and includes some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Lake (Netherlands), 2020.
LP ... On November 27, 2020
A really great record, and one that's even better than its gimmick – even though that gimmick is pretty darn great! The group pretends to be a British jazz combo from 1970, and works their way through a host of Black Sabbath tunes from the time – but rather than a straighter reworking ... LP, Vinyl record album
CBS/Get On Down, 1977. (reissue)

Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1977. (reissue)
LP ... About November 30, 2020
An overlooked gem from trumpeter Charles Tolliver – not as well known as his Strata East sessions with Music Inc, but equally great!

A fantastic chapter in the continuing evolution of trumpeter Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah – a set recorded at the Blue Note in New York, just days before the city had to shut down in 2020 – and a record that maybe carries with it some of the urgency of that moment!
