King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It could well be argued that in the 70s, the Japanese jazz scene was possibly the greatest place to be a bassist – as players like Yoshi Ikeda really had a chance to stretch out their sound, and try something new with records like this! The album's a really inventive little set – warm, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Keyboardist Masaru Imada in a really great setting – working alongside a tight trombone lineup with a really bold sound!

✨✧ Takeshi InomataModern Punch For You ... CD
King (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The punch here is in the groove – a nice little burst down at the bottom of the rhythms, which makes most of these tunes swing nicely! The set's a bit hard to describe right off the bat – but it's kind of a mix of jazz ensemble swinging with some groovier 60s modes – bits of ... (Jazz) read more CD

King (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Nothing innocent about this record – because the groove is hard and heavy, wild and trippy – a really heady brew of funky jazz and more psychedelic influences – all recorded with some weird sounds in the background too!

Proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the ... (Jazz) read more CD

Wonderful – and the best side of Elvin Jones – stretched out, spiritual, with a loping post-Coltrane groove that's handled perfectly by the group!

Lovely work from Kimiko Kasai – easily one of the best female jazz vocalists on the Japanese scene in the 70s! Kimiko's got a wonderfully deep range – an ability to dip into lower notes when needed, but not in any sort of gimmicky way – just this full-voiced quality that makes ... (Vocalists) read more CD

A well-titled record, as Albert King here plays with the large sound and big tone that would make him one of the best up-and-coming bluesmen of the 60s – a key player in the already-electrified generation, and possibly the greatest example of the new confidence that was coming into the genre ...
