Camilla George

Ibio Ibio
Ever (UK), 2022.
Not the first album from saxophonist Camilla George, but the set where it really feels like she's found her voice in music – weaving together her own strong solo on alto sax with the work of a top-shelf array of players from the London scene, while also nodding towards her roots in the Ibibio ... CD (Jazz CD)

Horace Tapscott

Horace Tapscott Quintet
Flying Dutchman/Mr Bongo (UK), 1969.
Never-heard music from the great Horace Tapscott – rare material that was recorded for the Flying Dutchman label at the end of the 60s, but never issued at the time! The Tapscott here is at his soaring, spiritual best – filled with a new sense of energy and exploration, as he guides a ... CD (Jazz CD)

Sault

Air
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2022.
Maybe the most powerful album we've ever heard from Sault – and a record that's unlike anything else they've given us before! The set has Sault rising into the righteous heavens – almost like the way that certain artists were elevated by the power of the Cadet/Concept late 60s years in ... CD (New Grooves CD)

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto

Blues For K
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2022.
Pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto gave us some sublime records in the 70s on the Three Blind Mice label from Japan – and he really continues the spirit of those records here, on a set of tracks that demonstrate that, if anything, his sense of space and timing have gotten even more amazing as the ... CD (Jazz CD)
Blue Note, 2022.
Although Blue Note is probably one of the most iconic record labels on the planet, the company's also done a great job of reinventing itself as the years go on – always showing that they've still got an ear for the same sort of new talent that made Blue Note so important back in the day! ... CD (Jazz CD)

Makaya McCraven

In These Times
International Anthem/Nonesuch, 2022.
Maybe the most majestic album that Makaya McCraven has recorded to date – and that's really saying a lot, given the power of his music on previous records! This time around, the group is large, and the performance is more organic than some of the more mixed/produced sessions that Makaya has ... CD (Jazz CD)

Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari

Grounation
New Dimension/Soul Jazz (UK), 1972. 2CD
An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time! The vibe here is really rootsy, and almost more spiritual jazz than reggae – with lots of spare percussion from Count ... CD (Reggae CD)

Wayne Davis

Wayne Davis
Black Fire/Strut (UK), 1976. (reissue)
A wonderful soul album on the Black Fire label – a hip 70s imprint best known for spiritual jazz – stepping out here on a record that has a lot more vocals than their other releases, but which makes for a mighty nice fit! Wayne Davis is wonderful here – singing with the warmth of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Ace (UK), Late 60s.
That's a young Isaac Hayes on the cover, sitting at the piano next to David Porter – his key songwriting partner at Stax Records in the 60s – at a time before both artists had gone onto their own solo recordings for the label! The Hayes/Porter team gave Stax some of their best songs ... CD (Soul CD)

Miles Jaye

Miles
Island/Universal (Japan), 1987.
Miles Jaye once played the cop in the Village People, but don't hold that against him – because by the time of this debut set, he'd really crafted his style as a soul singer – which makes the record a key part of a new trend in male soul for the late 80s! Jaye's got a cool, ... CD (Soul CD)
Astrollage (Japan), 2022.
A really beautiful follow-up to the previous set of duets from these two west coast musicians – and a record that's maybe even more sublime than the first! We're not sure what it is – maybe it's the passage of a few years that has deepened the sound, or maybe just the warmth that both ... CD (Jazz CD)

Boris Gardiner

Ultra Super Dub Vol 1
Ultra/Now Again, Mid 70s.
Some of the deepest work we've ever heard from Jamaican funk giant Boris Gardiner – and a set that might have been called "Ultra Rare Dub" instead – given the obscurity of the recordings! The core material here is from 45s that Boris issues in the early 70s – the kind ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae LP)

Gregory Tardy

Sufficient Grace
WJ3, 2022.
There's way more than sufficient grace going on here – and a strongly soulful swing that really has the whole album coming together, right on the money! Maybe that's no surprise, though, given that the set's issued on the excellent WJ3 label from Willie Jones III, who plays drums at the core ... CD (Jazz CD)
Savant, 2022.
Maybe one of the most unique efforts in the "Latin Side" series from trombonist Conrad Herwig – as the combination of Latin rhythms and the music of Charles Mingus isn't one that we can easily imagine – yet one that sounds really wonderful as things come together on the album! ... CD (Jazz CD)
University Of Chicago, 2022.
Writer Paul Steinbeck has already given us a great book on the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – but this time around, he looks at the larger scene from which they came, the groundbreaking AACM moment in jazz, which emerged in Chicago in the late 60s! Steinbeck provides some cultural and historical ... Book (Book)

Barre Phillips & Gyorgy Kurtag Jr

Face A Face
ECM (Germany), 2022.
The legendary bassist Barre Phillips has given us some amazing records over the years, including some sublime sets on ECM – yet even after that long legacy in sound, Phillips still has plenty to give – as you'll hear on this beautiful set of duets with keyboardist/electronic musician ... CD (Jazz CD)

Dave Rempis/Tomeka Reid/Joshua Abrams

Allium
Aerophonic, 2022.
Sonic exploration by three players who really know how to find the right path forward together – Tomeka Reid on cello, Joshua Abrams on bass, and Dave Rempis on alto and tenor saxes – a trio who resonate with that crisp, consistent sense of improvisation that has made the Chicago scene ... CD (Jazz CD)

AB Spellman, Larry Neal, & Amiri Baraka, eds

Cricket – Black Music In Evolution 1968/1969
Jihad/Blank Forms, 2022.
A beautiful recreation of this legendary and short-lived publication – a key voice from the black underground of the late 60s – and one that was a very different look at jazz than the mainstream world of Downbeat! Amiri Baraka was one of the founders and editors, and issued the ... Book (Book)

Kousuke Ichihara

Now Sound 75
Victor (Japan), 1975. (reissue)
A beautiful little record, and one that really lives up to the "now sound" promise of its title – as it takes older Japanese folk melodies, and updates them for a fuller funky style that's very much the spirit of 1975! Instrumentation is full of jazzy keyboards and saxophone solos ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Alan Skidmore/Mike Osborne/John Surman

SOS
Ogun (UK), 1975.
One of our favorite sides of the British avant scene in the 70s – a body of work that's out, but never too out – soaring on spiritual wings one moment, and working in playful blocks of sound the next! All three artists play saxes on the album – tenor for Akan Skidmore, alto for ... CD (Jazz CD)
