Modern Latin Jazz
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy 2CD
The title's a great one here – as Gerardo Frisina has been one of the few contemporary artists trying to find a fresh voice for Latin Jazz – which he does beautifully by blending classic albums and a more current sense of club! The 2CD package brings together unreleased material with ... CD
African Spirits/New World Shuffle
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
A record that's way more than just the 12" single you might guess from the format – as it's a wonderfully deep collaboration between Nicola Conte and trombonist Gianluca Petrella – done at a level that's maybe more like a spiritual jazz record overall! "African Spirits" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Onda
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy
A beautifully collaborative project from S-Tone – aka Stefano Tirone – done in a way that makes his already warm grooves sound even better than usual! The album's got a blend of modern production and older Brazilian music references – not the more mainstream bossa remix style, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rocksteady Disco, 2017. New Copy
Afro-Brazil inspired club grooves from Rocksteady Disco honco Peter Croce! "Agape" builts slow from a beat, with warmer vibe in the near distance that comes on in full as it progresses. "Maractu Detroit" mexicans electronic beats and more organic, tropical atmosphere with the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fisherman Abides
Alpha Pup, 2017. New Copy
Really beautiful stuff from this very cool group – music that seems to resonate in a special space between 70s AOR and underground pop of the following decade – touched by some jazz aspects in the instrumentation, and delivered with a vibe that's as as poetic as the title! The core ... LP, Vinyl record album
So We Gwarn
Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from Dego and Kaidi Tatham – a duo we've been loving since their post-4Hero work as Silhouette Brown – a team who've only gotten better and better as the years go on! There's a soaring vision here that's way more than club – even though there's some clubbier ... CD
So We Gwarn
Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy 2 LPs
Fantastic sounds from Dego and Kaidi Tatham – a duo we've been loving since their post-4Hero work as Silhouette Brown – a team who've only gotten better and better as the years go on!

Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy
The Heavenly Sweetness label celebrates its first tne years in business – with a special birthday present of all-exclusive tracks! This set doesn't look back at the previous decade of the label, but instead points the way forward – with a wonderful selection of newly-recorded tracks by ... CD
Parribean Disco/This Hustle Parisian
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
Cotonete are a cool little combo on Heavenly Sweetness records – one whose own jazzy work is plenty darn great, before taking on an even more soaring groove here in the hands of Dimitri From Paris! Both tunes sound like some lost New York underground tracks from the late 70s – the kind ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy 2CD
A dozen volumes in – and this wonderful series is still going strong – an incredibly solid, incredibly trustworthy collection of all that's great in the global underground! Gilles Peterson has been opening up our ears for decades, and he's never let us down – and, as before, ... CD
Sound Signature, 1999. New Copy
Early work from underground genius Theo Parrish – but still already a pretty great vision of all of his great grooves to come! "Early Byrd" has a skittish snapping snare, which then leads into some great sampled sounds from Donald Byrd during the Larry Mizell years – not ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Other Directions
Schema (Italy), 2004. New Copy 2LP
Incredible work from Nicola Conte – Schema records maestro making his Blue Note debut with this set – and giving the label one of their best new albums of the 21st Century! The record's quite different than Nicola's programmed dancefloor work for Schema – and is much more of an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atemporal Space Tests (with bonus CD)
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy
The title of the record may sound a bit scientific, but the music within has a very human appeal – sweet funky rhythms forged by the team of DJ Rocca and Stefano Ghittoni – the latter of whom you might know from previous productions with The Dining Rooms! The sound here is maybe an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Aforemention
Mental Groove/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy
CD...$8.99 13.99
Spare drums, percussion, and lots of electronics from Tommaso Cappellato – a musician who works here with only a bit of guest vocals from time to time, but never makes us feel like we're missing the presence of a larger group at all! Cappellato's somewhere in a space near cosmic jazz, but is ... CD
Mark De Clive-Lowe Presents Church
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2014. New Copy
Mark De Clive-Lowe takes us to church – with a set that's easily his most soulful, spiritual record ever! The album's got a lot more acoustic elements than usual – plenty of jazz elements on tenor, flute, trumpet, and percussion – mixed with Mark's own great Fender Rhodes and ... CD
Bless
Sound Signature, 2016. New Copy
A great record from the Detroit underground – a set that's almost more jazz-based than some of the others on the Sound Signature label – but which also still has all the deep grooves we love from the label too! The cover provides no information at all on Hanna – but the set has ... CD
Sound Signature, 2007. New Copy
Spare sounds from the Detroit scene – the kind of grooves that Theo Parrish and his scene have been making for years, and really opening up the frontiers – even when the rest of the world may not have been looking! The sounds here are spare and spacey, but still mostly rhythmic – ... CD
Parallel Dimensions
Sound Signature, 2000. New Copy
Amazing work from Detroit future house genius Theo Parrish! Parallel Dimensions couldn't be a more appropriate title for the set – as Parrish takes the languorous, hypnotic elements learned from years in the Detroit house scene and blends those loops and beats with a rich tapestry of ... CD
Afrorever EP
Betino's (France), 2017. New Copy
A mighty soulful combo from the Paris scene – and one who aren't afraid to pick up a bit of global influence too! The core sound of the group comes from wonderful Fender Rhodes, guitar, and some occasional saxes – over rhythms that are funky in a variety of ways – but more soul-in ... LP, Vinyl record album
La Band Del Brasiliano Vol 2
Cinedelic (Italy), 2017. New Copy
A contemporary record, but one that's got a very vintage vibe – served up by a young Italian combo whose style hearkens back to the grooviest styles of the 60s! Most of the tunes are romping, jerking, and jumping – that mod 60s blend of soul, rock, and jazz elements that flourished ... CD
