Henry Franklin

Skipper
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1972.
One of the greatest moments ever from west coast bassman Henry Franklin – a set of soaring, spiritual power – and a key demonstration of his rich energy as a leader! Franklin heads a wicked lineup here – playing both Fender and acoustic bass amidst other players who include Bill ... CD (Jazz CD)
Daptone, 2021.
The Menahan Street Band are always pretty exciting to our funk-trained ears – but this time around, there seems to be a little something extra in the mix – a sound that has all these great little strange twists and turns around the edges, while still keeping all the mellow funk of the ... CD (Deep Funk CD)
Hotlanta/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974.
One of the greatest albums of southern soul from the 70s – a set we'd put right up there next to the Soul Children albums on Stax, or the new sound that was brewing up down at Malaco! Jimmy Lewis is an artist who never fully got his due – but he wrote and produced the whole set, at a ... CD (Soul CD)

Shintaro Nakamura with Shunzo Ohno

Evolution (2LP x 45rpm pressing)
Street Noise/BBE (Japan), 1984. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Soaring piano lines, burning trumpet solos, and soulful tenor sax – all wrapped together beautifully in this obscure Japanese session from the 80s – a date that has all the free-thinking power and unbounded energy of some of our favorite American soul jazz sessions from a decade before! ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Gene Russell

Talk To My Lady
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1973.
Some of the hippest sounds we've ever heard from pianist Gene Russell – an album that features heavy use of Fender Rhodes – and a soulful, solid, rhythmic core that comes from the basslines of Henry Franklin, guitar of Calvin Keys, and drums of Ndugu Chancler! The set's one of the ... CD (Jazz CD)
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 3CD
A funny thing happened to British music after the initial explosion of punk in the late 70s – it got surprisingly funky, in all sorts of weird ways that helped the new music cross over to the dancefloor – maybe inspired by American funk and soul, but coming off with a very different ... CD (Rock CD)
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
An ear-opening set of Japanese jazz from a time when that nation's scene was really taking off – a period in the 70s when all sorts of new artists and new ideas were really flying around – and leaving behind a huge recorded legacy that's been mostly out of reach for us in the west! ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Vanguard/Real Gone, 1973. (reissue)
A killer batch of jazzy Brazilian tracks – with a soaring groove that will never let you down! Sivica's a guitarist and accordionist who'd worked in the 60s with artists like Luiz Henrique and Oscar Brown Jr – but in this 1973 session, recorded in the US, he hits a sound that he'd be ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil LP)

Adrian Younge

American Negro
Jazz Is Dead, 2021.
The most political album we've ever heard from Adrian Younge – a set that stands as a much stronger, much more individual message than anything he's ever given us before! All Adrian's previous instrumental elements are in the mix – heavy funk, with a special soundtrack sort of twist ... CD (Deep Funk CD)

Black Unity Trio

Al-Fatihah
Salaam Records/Gotta Groove, 1969. (reissue)
Amazing spiritual jazz treasure – the only album ever issued by this obscure avant trio from the Cleveland scene – a group that includes a young Abdul Wadud on bass and cello! The style is nicely loose and open, but also very different than the sound of the AACM at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Chien Chien Lu

Path
Chien Chien Lu, 2020.
Imagine a record that starts with a fantastic reading of a Roy Ayers' tune, then just gets better as things go on – and that's very much what you'll get here, in this sweet set from vibist Chien Chien Lu! The record's got Chien Chien ringing out on these bold, well-placed notes – ... CD (Jazz CD)
Warner/El (UK), Late 60s. 4CD
An amazing set – all four of the legendary Warner Brothers albums by harmony giants Harpers Bizarre – plus bonus tracks too! First up is Feelin Groovy – the fab first LP by Harpers Bizarre! The group were one of the strangest pop ensembles operating in the seminal LA scene of ... CD (Rock CD)

Gaston

My Queen
Hotlanta/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978.
An incredible record from the southern scene of the 70s – a really unique set that's filled with righteous soul touches, and which really stands out from most other southern soul of the time! The feel here is often in a cosmic mode with plenty of jazz at the bottom – a sound that's ... CD (Soul CD)
Aware/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973.
The first album by John Edwards – a richly talented vocalist who would go onto become the lead singer of the Spinners in later years, singing on some of their last big hits. This album's a very different effort – and features John singing in a deep Southern Soul style, mixed with the ... CD (Soul CD)

Quincy Jones

Banning
La La Land, 1967.
A really rare soundtrack from Quincy Jones – right up there with his jazziest gems of the 60s, but never issued on record at the time! The music is for an obscure film with Robert Wagner in the lead, and the sounds are a hip blend of the earlier jazz modes of Quincy, with some of the fuller ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
Warner, 1980s. (reissue)
Chaka Khan on Warner Brothers – a fantastic second chapter in the career of the singer who already took the 70s by storm with her work in Rufus! Here, Chaka emerges as an even more powerful solo singer on her own – often getting treatment from Arif Mardin in the studio, who elevates ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 70s.
One of the greatest southern soul talents presents a host of other great talents from his 70s generation – and also throws in a fair bit of his own tracks as well! Sam Dees is one of the all-time greats in our book – a songwriter to rival the best that Stax had to offer back in the day ... CD (Soul CD)
Polydor/Robinsongs (UK), Early 80s. 10CD
An insanely big collection of work from Level 42 – a British group from the 80s who were equal parts soul and pop, but also had a strongly jazzy current as well! These guys leapt onto the international scene from the British one in the mid 80s – thanks to a soulful core that not only ... CD (Soul CD)
Studio One, Late 60s.
Jamaican Ska, and a whole lot more – a key batch of early Studio One recordings that show just how many styles were criss-crossing in Kingston at the time! There's definitely lots of rhythms here that would make a rude boy happy, but there's also some richly soulful vocals that point the way ... CD (Reggae CD)
Dexterity/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972.
A gem of a live set from Dexter Gordon – one that features a nice change from some of his more familiar records of the time! The set features Gordon recording away from Cafe Montmartre, with an excellent Dutch rhythm trio – the fantastic Rob Agerbeek on piano, plus Henk Haverhoek on ... CD (Jazz CD)
