Don Cherry's New Researches Ensemble

Organic Music Theatre Festival De Chateauvallon 1972
INA/Blank Forms, 1972. 2CD
An incredible performance from the great Don Cherry – one that's maybe the most perfect summation we've ever heard of his ability to embrace a globe's worth of influences and make them his own! The set was recorded live at a French jazz festival in 1972, and it has a very compelling group ... CD (Jazz CD)

Shamek Farrah

La Dee La La
Ra/Jazz Room (UK), 1978. (reissue)
A lost soul jazz treasure – the legendary 3rd album from saxophonist Shamek Farrah, recorded after his first 2 sides for Strata East! The approach here is slightly different than that of the Strata sides – a bit more joyous and lyrical, with tunes that open up in waves of sound, color, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Billy Harper

Black Saint
Black Saint/Our Swimmer (Germany), 1975. (reissue)
Stunning work from one of the greatest players of the post-Coltrane generation – a classic session recorded overseas in the mid 70s, and one that's filled with soulful expressions from the great Billy Harper! Harper's tenor kicks off the set with an immediately gripping sound – as ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers

Funk Express (with bonus tracks)
Source/Raw Venture, 1980.
A great lost moment from seminal DC funk artist Chuck Brown – a set done after his mid 70s Sussex albums with the Soul Searchers, but before his bigger shift to GoGo modes in the 80s – all with a surprisingly jazzy vibe at times, thanks to sharp production from the great Wayne Henderson! ... CD (Soul CD)
Ace/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
The Vietnam war was tough on most folks in the US – but it's no secret that it was especially tough on black Americans – who were often given little choice and little chance to get out of the callup to the military action – which left a huge impression on their community for years ... CD (Soul CD)

Harold Land

Westward Bound
Reel To Reel, Early 60s.
A fantastic addition to the too-small catalog of work from the wonderful Harold Land – the west coast tenorist whose sound was maybe more of a bridge to the New York scene in the 50s and 60s – as you'll hear in this collection of well-recorded and unreleased material from his key years ... CD (Jazz CD)
Esoteric (UK), 1969. 3CD
A fantastic little set that heralds the beginning of a whole new generation in music – post-psych sounds from the year of 1969 – a time when the revolution had cooled a bit, but new waves of creative activity were really bubbling underground in the UK scene – as all these many ... CD (Rock CD)
Hat Art (Switzerland), 1962.
An incredible batch of freely crafted tracks from Jimmy Giuffre's legendary early 60s trio! The group features Steve Swallow on bass and Paul Bley on piano, and the two young modernists were a perfect match of Giuffre's ever-developing ideas of freedom and harmony. The music is beautiful – ... CD (Jazz CD)
Pye/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. 4CD
A much-needed complete look at The Sorrows – a UK group who cut a few key singles back in the 60s, but who evolved a lot in just a few short years – and recorded a lot more great music than most folks ever knew back in the day! The group first appeared with a catchy, harmonic sort of ... CD (Rock CD)

Don Rendell/Ian Carr Quintet

Blue Beginnings
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1964.
Genius early work from this legendary British jazz combo – material recorded right before the release of their classic Shades Of Blue album – which marked a huge watershed in European modern jazz! The tracks here were recorded live on the BBC, and have the group stepping out in their ... CD (Jazz CD)
Blank Forms, 1968. 2CD
Here's a summer house we'd really like to visit on our next vacation – a legendary spot in Sweden, where Don Cherry created freely with some of the hippest players on the local scene in 1968! The tracks here were all recorded for later commercial release, which never ended up happening ... CD (Jazz CD)
Not Two (Poland), 2021. 3CD
Bassist Joelle Leandre is always a warmly collaborative player – an artist whose own sound is tremendous, but also seems to bring out the best in her collaborators – which is definitely the case in this series of live material recorded at the Krakow Jazz Festival in Poland! CD1 ... CD (Jazz CD)
Valley Of Search, 1972.
A never-issued live performance – a beautiful 18 minute improvisation between Alan Braufman on alto and Cooper Moore on piano – recorded as it slide out over the airwaves of WKCR in New York, in 1972 – and a much-needed addition to the small amount of recordings that Braufman made ... 12-inch, Vinyl record (Jazz 12-inch)
Philadelphia International, 1973. 2LP Gatefold
The setting is the Golden Gate, but the sound is pure Philly International – a rare early live performance from the label, featuring some of its key vocal heavyweights working here with live accompaniment from MFSB! Although the instrumental group backed Philly artists often in the studio, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Eboni Band

Eboni Band
Eboni/We Are Busy Bodies (UK), Early 80s. (reissue)
A really unique record, and one with a very unusual pedigree – as the group features key members of some acts from the Ivory Coast in the late 70s, mixed with various Motown session players in the studio – all in a way that offers up a completely different take on Cali soul from the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)

Chico Buarque

Calabar
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1973. (reissue)
Genius work from Chico Buarque – one of his most complicated, sophisticated, and fully-realized albums – a great summation of all the brilliance he'd already brought to Brazilian music – moved forward into new territory for the 70s! The album's of the same vintage as the more ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil LP)

Nina Simone

Very Rare Evening
Tidal Waves, 1969. (reissue)
A very rare evening indeed – a sweet little live set recorded by Nina Simone during her soulful height at RCA – but issued years after that time, and only briefly on a small indie label! The setting here is wonderful – a small combo in the background with the great Weldon Irvine ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists LP)

Wandering The Sound Quintet (Satoko Fujii/Guillermo Gregorio)

What Is
Not Two (Poland), 2021.
Wandering The Sound is a great name for this quintet – as their improvisations seem to go on a journey during the course of the record – one that's not lost in the sense that "wandering" sometimes implies, but which is taking things easy, really exploring the time and space of ... CD (Jazz CD)
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
A really great take on the music of Donovan – not his own groovy songs of the 60s, but a whole host of others taking up his tunes and moving it into some really great new dimensions! We love Donovan to death, and while we'll never tire of the man's own recordings of his tunes, we're always ... CD (Rock CD)

Resilient Vessels (James Brandon Lewis/Patrick Holmes/Ches Smith/Josh Wrner)

Resilient Vessels Live At The Cell
RR Gems (Estonia), 2021.
A sublime quartet, coming together here for a really unique session – one that's got a very modal vibe mixed with some freer moments served up by a piano-less group with a very special sound! Bassist Josh Werner got the whole project together, and the set's got a rock-solid foundation in his ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
