Strata East/Manufactured, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very trippy album from the enigmatic Brother Ah – aka Robert Northern, former member of Sun Ra's Arkestra, and also a lecturer on the east coast.

✨✧ Stanley CowellMusa ... LP
Strata East/Everland (Austria), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A solo piano set from Strata East mainman Stanley Cowell – but a record that's got enough soul and spirituality to rival a full group recording!

Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... About November 15, 2020
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 ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime spiritual jazz from Strata East – one of the label's rarest recordings, and one of its hippest too!

Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the hardest to find records on Strata East, and one of the best – a darkly-crafted session of pure beauty, one that lives up to all the best promise of the label!

✨✧ John GordonErotica Suite ... LP
Strata East/Everland (Austria), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic little record – and very much the kind of set that the Strata East label was created to represent! The music here would hardly have found a home on the bigger jazz labels of the period – not because it's too avant garde or non-commercial, but just because it's so deeply ...

Strata East/Everland (Austria), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of spiritual jazz – and completely unlike anything else the Heath Brothers ever recorded! The set's incredible – far more spiritual and father-reaching than even the best early 70s albums by reedman Jimmy Heath – and certainly different than the later, tighter ...

Strata East/Now Again, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here!

The third volume in Strata East's Dolphy Series, and a hard to find recording by the great baritone saxophonist Cecil Payne!

An overlooked gem from trumpeter Charles Tolliver – not as well known as his Strata East sessions with Music Inc, but equally great!
