Night Dreamer (UK), 2020.
A fantastic EP UK trumpeter Emma Jean Thackray – really growing into an important role as a leader here, amidst some of her hippest contemporaries from the London scene! The album features two side-long tracks, both brilliant – built up from spontaneous interplay between Thackray and ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Verve, 1962.
Ella Fitzgerald recorded one of her most successful albums in Berlin – a smoking live set that gave the world her take on "Mack The Knife" – and this set marks a fantastic second chapter to that record – unreleased tapes that appear here for the first time ever! The ... CD (Vocalists CD)
Schema (Italy), 2020.
The cover image is a bit different than the modernist images usually used for records by Italian maestro Gerardo Frisina, and the sound is a bit different too – maybe less Latin or Brazilian than some of his previous records, but still filled with lots of percussion at the core! There's ... CD (New Grooves CD)
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. 3CD
A totally great look at the role of the female singer in mid 70s England – a role that's a bit of an evolution from the UK pop styles of the 60s – soaring forth in a great mix of rock, vocal, and soul-based modes! Some of the singers are names that you'd recognize from the initial ... CD (Rock CD)
Far Out (UK), Mid 70s. (pic cover)
Two rare early tracks from Azymuth – both mighty nice! "As Curvas Da Estrada De Santos" is an instrumental take on a tune by the brothers Robert and Erasmo Carlos – but done as a slow-stepping funky instrumental, with loads of great organ work from Jose Roberto Bertrami! The ... 7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's 7-inch)

Soft Head (Hugh Hopper/Elton Dean/Alan Gowen/DaveSheen)

Rogue Element (with bonus tracks)
Ogun (UK), 1978.
That's Soft Head, not Soft Heap – which is another way of saying that the fantastic music here is yet another strong evolution of the original Soft Machine sound! The quartet features bass from Hugh Hopper and amazing work from Elton Dean on alto and saxello – plus sweet electric piano ... CD (Rock CD)

Christian McBride

For Jimmy, Wes, & Oliver
Mack Avenue, 2020.
Bassist Christian McBride is at the helm of a big band here – paying tribute to the fantastic work done for Verve Records in the 60s by organist Jimmy Smith, guitarist Wes Montgomery, and arranger Oliver Nelson! The set really captures the dynamic energy of records like Bashin or The Dynamic ... CD (Jazz CD)

Billy Brooks

Windows Of The Mind
Crossover/We Want Sounds (UK), 1974.
Funky trumpet galore – and one of the few albums ever cut by trumpeter Billy Brooks as a leader! At the time of this 1974 LP, Billy Brooks was an overlooked LA trumpeter working in the Ray Charles band – and although this record didn't bring him instant fame when it was released, it's ... CD (Jazz CD)
International Anthem, 2020.
A really great idea for a record – and one that echoes the same "E & F" mode that Makaya McCraven brought to his previous album! The approach here is as unique as the drummer himself – in that McCraven went back to the sessions for the core album, and pulled out material ... CD (Jazz CD)
Philips/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. 2CD
Jason Crest only ever issued six singles back in the 60s, but they've gone on to be the stuff of legend for collectors of UK psych from the time – a group who finally get their full-length due with this 2CD set! The Jason Crest charm is a bit hard to describe – not mindblowing psych of ... CD (Rock CD)
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s.
Fantastic west coast blues from the 60s, none of issued at the time – collected together here in a set that really shows the continuing evolution of the sound of LA! During the 60s, the city's blues took on some of the transformations that were happing in Chicago – with similar roots ... CD (Blues CD)

Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah

Axiom – Live At The Blue Note
Ropeadope, 2020.
A fantastic chapter in the continuing evolution of trumpeter Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah – a set recorded at the Blue Note in New York, just days before the city had to shut down in 2020 – and a record that maybe carries with it some of the urgency of that moment! Scott's studio ... CD (Jazz CD)
Marlow (Canada), 2020.
A nice little record that lives up to the name of the group – a record that's maybe jazz at the core, but served up in very cinematic ways – very much the spirit of the dark, moody image pictured on the cover! This isn't chase, crime, or cop music – but instead maybe the sounds ... CD (Jazz CD)
Chess/Anagram, 1976. (reissue)
A really great record from Solomon Burke – and one that's quite different than his early work on Atlantic Records! Solomon's not going for his roots, and instead works with help from Sylvia Robinson and the team over at All-Platinum Records – to get kind of a pre-Sugarhill dose of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
P-Vine (Japan), 1970s.
Sweet harmonies and soaring vocals – a sublime collection of 70s work by The Ballads! The group here are a bit more polished than on their earlier singles – but still sounding wonderful overall, and miles from some of the more commercial soul of the time! The rhythms have picked up a ... CD (Soul CD)
Gary Simons, 2020.
A pretty nice introduction to the new wave of Japanese music that emerged in the 70s – particularly the world of Yellow Magic Orchestra and Ryuichi Sakamoto, as well as some of their key contemporaries on the scene! As with other books by author Gary Simons, the presentation is great – ... Book (Book)

Kellee Patterson

Maiden Voyage
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1973.
The most righteous album ever from Kellee Patterson – her first record, and a set that's way different from her more soul-based sides of later years! The album's got Patterson working in a wonderfully soulful approach to jazz – a style that's not unlike the earliest work by Dee Dee ... CD (Vocalists CD)
Columbia/Sunbeam (UK), 1969. (reissue)
A fantastic album from Don Shinn – a little-remembered British organist from the 60s, and one who cut this gem of a record for the legendary Lansdowne series of Columbia Records – home to rare gems by Joe Harriott, Stan Tracey, and other important UK jazz contemporaries! The album ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Desco/Daptone, 1999. (reissue)
A stunning return to form by Lee Fields, one of the 70s' lost funky geniuses – heard here in the initial set that would catapult him back in the spotlight for a whole new generation! The record was issued by Desco Records – the key precursor to Daptone, Soul Fire, and other modern funk ... LP, Vinyl record album (Deep Funk LP)
World Circuit/Nonesuch, 2002. 2LP Gatefold
A great return to form for Orchestra Baobab – a group who really shone on the Senegalese scene in the 70s, but disbanded right as they were hitting global fame – eventually reuniting around the time of this album, thanks to demand from listeners around the world! The style is nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)
