Turbo/Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. 2CD
An essential collection of work from one of the hippest funk groups of the 70s – the mysterious Wood Brass & Steel, who also participated in the legendary Skullsnaps record! The first part of the set features an unreleased album that the group recorded for the All-Platinum label in 1973 ... CD (Soul CD)

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Brian Jackson

Brian Jackson – Jazz Is Dead 8
Jazz Is Dead, 2021.
A tremendous return to form for the great Brian Jackson – an artist that most folks know for his legendary 70s work with Gil Scott-Heron, but one who's kept on making great music for years after Gil departed our planet! Here, Jackson's the lead talent on Fender Rhodes, flute, and other ... CD (Deep Funk CD)

Tomorrow's People

Open Soul
Stage Productions/P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s. (reissue)
A really legendary group from the underground 70s scene in Chicago – one who've got all the chops and capabilities of the bigger groups of the time, but who never fully got their due – maybe in part because of the racy image on the album's cover! The group are a sharp funky ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s.
A fantastic entry in this really groovy series – and one that's filled with even more surprises than the first two volumes! It's been quite awhile since Light In The Attic gave us those sets – and the time's been well-used to dig up a much later batch of tracks from the world of ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)

Hiroshi Suzuki

Cat
Sony/We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1975.
A great bit of electric jazz from the Japanese scene of the 70s – an album that easily rivals the best CTI work in the US at the time! Trombonist Hiroshi Suzuki heads up a quintet here – one that's heavy on electric piano and keyboards, played in a stretched-out sort of groove that ... CD (Jazz CD)

Jorge Lopez Ruiz

El Grito
Acoua/Be With (UK), 1967. (reissue)
A brilliant large group performance from Argentine bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz – and one that's got all the fire and energy you might expect from the cover! The album's an extended piece in five movements – written, arranged, and directed by Ruiz on bass – but featuring some ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
NPG/Legacy, 2010.
A really fantastic album from Prince – recorded in 2010, and unreleased at the time – but clearly one of the greatest things he gave us in the final decade of his life! This isn't uncooked demo material, or under-thought studio tracks – and instead, the whole thing is a fully-form ... CD (Soul CD)
Analog Africa (Germany), Early 80s. 2LP Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)
BTF (Italy), 1973.
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time! The group features two guitars and lots of organ and keyboards from the leader – really ... LP, Vinyl record album (Sound Library LP)
Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2CD
A trio of early solo albums from Joe Sample – with bonus cuts too! First up is Rainbow Seeker – a sublime solo set from the great Joe Sample – a set recorded right at a time when his work with The Crusaders was breaking very big, and Joe was becoming one of the hottest fusion ... CD (Jazz CD)

Aretha Franklin

ARETHA (4CD set)
Atlantic, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. 4CD
A really fantastic career-spanning collection of work from Aretha Franklin – the first we've ever seen to start with her earliest years, then follow the greatness of her voice and spirit as it blossomed strongly over the decades! Sure, most folks know Franklin's classic work on Atlantic ... CD (Soul CD)
Sublime Frequencies, 2021.
There's a single musician playing a balafon on the front cover of the record, but the sound within is much more group-oriented and tumultuous – wonderful work recorded in the field in Ghana, with a pulsing rhythmic quality that mixes the balafon with lots more percussion and some stringed ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)
Pilz/Breeze (Germany), 1972. Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most enigmatic records of the German scene of the 70s – an odd little set that mixes dark folk variants with a more atmospheric mode – almost as if you're floating in the gentler space of some Cluster-like ambience, when the cast of the Wicker Man bursts in to stir things up! ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Elisabeth Waldo

Maracatu
Pleasure For Music, 1959. (reissue)
The cover here is a bit misleading – as Elisabeth Waldo's an American, and one with roots in more serious music – but she does a fantastic job here blending together a study of South American themes with late 50s exotica! Waldo plays violin, but the instrument's a relatively small part ... LP, Vinyl record album (Now Sound LP)

Str4ta (Jean-Paul Bluey Maunick)

Aspects
Brownswood (UK), 2021.
A contemporary set, but one with a vibe that stretches back to the glory days of early 80s funk in England – served up by Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick, of Incognito fame – a talent whose contributions were key to the scene back in the day! If you know Bluey, you'll know his ... CD (New Grooves CD)

Yoshiko Sai

Mikkou
Teichiku/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. (reissue)
A record with a really trippy cover – and a sound within that mixes elements of that image with a surprisingly sweet and soulful sound! Vocals are in Japanese throughout, and while there's some current of groove to the record, Yoshiko Sai works in a mode that's very different than the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Billy Harper

Black Saint
Black Saint/Our Swimmer (Germany), 1975. (reissue)
Stunning work from one of the greatest players of the post-Coltrane generation – a classic session recorded overseas in the mid 70s, and one that's filled with soulful expressions from the great Billy Harper! Harper's tenor kicks off the set with an immediately gripping sound – as ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Jazz In Britain (UK), Late 60s.
Unreleased work from alto genius Joe Harriott – two different slices of material from a very under-recorded point in his career! The first five tracks feature Joe in that back to basics mode he was hitting at the time – working in a unique group that features Kenny Wheeler on trumpet ... CD (Jazz CD)

John Dokes

True Love
Rondette Jazz, 2019.
A hell of a great record from jazz singer John Dokes – an artist who is up to classic standards of phrasing and swing, but who also works here with a very contemporary sense of arrangement – so much so that the songs here are really transformed by his presentation! Dokes fits into a ... CD (Vocalists CD)
Atlantic/Nature Sounds, 1966.
A classic little album that's every bit as groovy as its cover – served up by vibist Dave Pike, and one of the first true expressions of his talents! The set's a standout early American date that predates Pike's later experiments for MPS – done in a great blend of soul jazz and some ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
