Angel Bat Dawid & Tha Brothahood

Live
International Anthem, 2021.
Angel Bat Dawid is a completely mesmerizing artist on record, but she's even more mindblowing in a live setting – where she seems to channel the energy of the skies and the planet into her music – brimming over with righteous energy that guides the rest of the group with a hell of a lot ... CD (Jazz CD)
Analog Africa (Germany), Early 80s.
They certainly got the "explosion" in the title right – as these tracks leap right out of the groove from the very first note – very heavy on percussion, and with a much starker, funkier sound than some other West African work from the early 80s! The tracks are all from the ... CD (Global Grooves CD)
Stax/Kent (UK), Early 70s.
A deep dive into the vaults of the legendary Stax Records – the Memphis label who helped usher in a whole new sound in soul music during the 60s, and was still going strong in the early part of the 70s! In the final years, Stax was hitting big with a number of stars, but also recording a bit ... CD (Soul CD)

Vincent Herring

Preaching To The Choir
Smoke Sessions, 2021.
Vincent Herring can certainly preach with his horn – a deeply soulful version of alto sax that gets plenty of room to open up and speak its message here – working through a set of long, lovely tracks with really great support! The group's a quartet – with Cyrus Chestnut on piano, ... CD (Jazz CD)
20th Century/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. (reissue)
Brilliant work from this long-lost Barry White protege! Tom Brock was one of the leading lights in Barry's stable of sweet mid 70s soul talents – a great writer who contributed songs to the legendary Gloria Scott album, and a heck of a great mellow soul singer on his own – with a style ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Music From Memory (Netherlands), Late 80s/Early 90s. 2CD
A very cool collection that opens up who new territory for digging into the wonderful world of Japanese underground music – a set that features titles that were only issued on CD at the time, which might make these cuts even more obscure for those vinyl-centric folks looking into the music! ... CD (Rock CD)
Morisom/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1976. (reissue)
A really heavyweight album from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – recorded by a group of artists who were really helping to transform the sound of jazz at the time! There are elements that are familiar here, but served up in these really fresh ways – changing up the rhythmic and melodic ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil LP)
Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. (reissue)
Bazali Bam look somewhat playful on the cover, but the record's got this darker intensity that points the way towards later experiments on the West African scene – with a blend of soul, funk, and psych elements that almost seem to be a precursor to Zamrock sounds! Yet the style here is a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)
RCA/Be With (UK), 1971. (reissue)
A really groovy little record, and one that's got all sorts of very cool things going on – sweet female vocals from Sola that almost feel like they're lifted from a French record, and not a Spanish language set – mixed with orchestrations that have a nice undercurrent of funk – a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin LP)

Female Species

Tale Of My Lost Love
Numero, Early 70s.
A tale of lost love, and lost music too – served up in this never-issued album from a very cool little group – a west coast girl pop outlet with a very dreamy sound! The group was formed by sisters Vicki and Ronnie Gosset, who'd later go on to greater fame as songwriters – but ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

George Benson

Other Side Of Abbey Road
CTI/Friday Music, 1969. Gatefold (reissue)
A wonderfully wicked album – one that sold so many copies that it's sometimes hard to remember how great it is! George takes on all of Abbey Road – or just about all of it – as he runs through some of the most beautiful tracks The Beatles ever wrote, like "Golden ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Grapefruit (UK), Early 70s. 3CD
Classic rock from before it was classic – but a set that's also filled with lots of musical surprises too! This isn't a batch of the oldies you'll hear played perpetually in the too-small set lists of classic rock FM stations over here – and instead, the box brings together a mix of ... CD (Rock CD)

Logan Richardson

Afrofuturism
Whirlwind, 2021.
We've always loved the music of Logan Richardson, but here he's onto something completely new and groundbreaking – as you might begin to guess from the cover and title! Logan still blows alto sax, but he also handles piano and keyboards, and works in this swirling mix of sound that really ... CD (Jazz CD)
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. 3CD
Later work from legendary Jamaican producer Duke Reid – best known for the rocksteady classics on his Treasure Isle label in the late 60s, but still going strong here well into the 70s! The tracks here represent nearly every single 12" release issued by Reid on the many branches of ... CD (Reggae CD)
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. 2CD
A great overview of the early soundtrack work of Georges Delerue – one of the first great composers to emerge from the French new wave/nouvelle vague generation – and an artist whose music was often a key part of those films! Some of the new wave cinema used music by jazz artists and ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
Ace (UK), Mid 70s. 2CD
Writer Jon Savage is maybe best known for his work on the early years of punk in England – and here, Savage steps back just a bit – to contextualize the rise of the new music in all sorts of other styles that were bubbling up in the mid 70s! Part of the set is a pathway to punk – ... CD (Rock CD)
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1950s/Early 60s. 3CD
A really ear-opening set of music from the Portuguese scene of the postwar years – instrumental tracks that follow some of the stylistic developments of fado, but which often branch into wonderful sounds that are all their own! In a way, the set is a counterpart to the growth of flamenco ... CD (Global Grooves CD)
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2021.
An incredible package – one that brings together four rare publications by Sun Ra – printed words that are every bit as groundbreaking as his music – and which together represent the farther-flung corners of his vast cultural enterprise! The set represents each of the texts in ... Book (Book)

Abraham Burton & Lucian Ban

Black Salt
Sunnyside, 2021.
A fantastic setting for the tenor of Abraham Burton – long-flowing tracks recorded live in a very open space, with Lucian Ban on piano, really pushing Burton to heights that we've never heard before! There's one track on the set dedicated to Pharoah Sanders – and Burton really seems to ... CD (Jazz CD)

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Gary Bartz

Gary Bartz – Jazz Is Dead 6
Jazz Is Dead, 2020.
Saxophonist Gary Bartz joins the duo of Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad – bringing a warm sense of soul to their soulful backings – which range from funky to spacey, and do a nice job of capturing the mid 70s feel of Gary on record! The sound isn't the Larry Mizell or Ntu Group ... CD (Deep Funk CD)
