Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s.
Soar through the skies on this sweet collection of rare African funk – the sixth volume in a series that seems to get better and better with each new release! Most of the cuts here are heavy on styles that resonate with the American scene of the late 70s – particularly the large ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)
Crammed (Belgium), 1978/2020.
A really cool idea for a record – one that first features unreleased tracks recorded in Kinshasa in 1978, on a special bonus CD – then adds in vinyl versions of reworks of the original recordings done for the project! The originals are fantastic – very percussive and melodic at ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)

Kaidi Tatham

In Search Of Hope
Freedom School/First Word (UK), 2008.
A brilliant album from Kaidi Tatham – deeper by far than anything we've ever heard from him, and way more than you might expect if you only know his singles from the London scene! This set's got a very strong jazz component – monstrous keyboard work from Kaidi that stretches and soars ... CD (New Grooves CD)

Lorez Alexandria

From Broadway To Hollywood
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
An ultra-hip record from Lorez Alexandria – one of her grooviest albums ever, and a set that was only ever issued in Japan! The set features Lorez hitting some of the hippest, most rhythmic modes of her career – working with jazzy backing arranged by Gildo Mahones and Art Hillery, ... CD (Vocalists CD)

Mulatu Astatke & Black Jesus Experience

To Know Without Knowing (with bonus download)
Agogo (Germany), 2020.
A great entry in the ongoing resurgence of the mighty Mulatu Astatke – the legend of Ethiopian music from the 70s, still going strong after all these years – and finding new ways to interact with generations of musicians that he inspired with his original recordings! This set has ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)

Dave Douglas

Dizzy Atmosphere
Greenleaf, 2020.
Dave Douglas works here in a group with two trumpets – Dave Adewumi on the other horn in the lead, but playing with a voice that's deeply distinct from the leader! The group's got that sort of fresh approach that seems to make each different record by Douglas a very different project – ... CD (Jazz CD)

Scotty McKay

Scotty McKay Rocks
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s.
Maybe the first-ever look at Scotty McKay – and definitely the first to give this rare rocker his full due – thanks to the beautiful Bear Family presentation, which includes copious notes, great sound, and a number of rare tracks that were unissued at the time! We'd put Scotty right up ... CD (Rock CD)
Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s.
The best side of the overlooked Billy Walker – his more rocking, hard-twanging numbers recorded for Columbia Records – all done at a time when the label was hitting big with other artists, even though Walker never fully got his due! Billy's maybe best known for a few western-themed ... CD (Folk/Country CD)
Play Loud (UK), Late 20s/1930s/1940s/1950s.
A really revelatory collection – a set of vintage recordings from the Jewish community in London's East End – songs with sounds that resonate very strongly with the musical sound of New York's Lower East Side during the same stretch of time! There's definitely some of the jazz promised ... CD (Global Grooves CD)
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1954. 2CDs
Three early 10" albums from alto genius Lee Konitz – packaged together here in one great 2CD set! First up is Lee Konitz At Storyville – tight early work from Lee Konitz – recorded on location at the very hospitable Storyville nightclub in Boston – a sweet setting for ... CD (Jazz CD)

Patrice Rushen

Posh
Elektra/Strut (UK), 1980.
Nothing posh about this one – as the album's an all-out, all-access affair – a great way for anyone to get into the grooves of the mighty Patrice Rushen! Patrice is at the height of her powers here – equally magic on keyboards and vocals, and coming up with groove after groove in ... CD (Soul CD)

Kidd Jordan/Joel Futterman/Alvin Fielder

Spirits
Silkheart (Switzerland), 2020.
A wonderful set, and one that's definitely filled with spirits – most particularly from the tenor of Kidd Jordan, which has all this subtle power behind it, at a level that really gives proof to Jordan's many years on the freer side of the jazz spectrum! The trio here also features Alvin ... CD (Jazz CD)

Cory Weeds with David Hazeltine

Day By Day
Cellar Live, 2020.
There's a great strong voice on this quartet date from alto player Corey Weeds – the piano of David Hazeltine, whose richness really seems to shape the session right from the very first note! The setting is one that's more natural to Weeds – a recording date in Vancouver, with Ken ... CD (Jazz CD)

Steve Swell Quinet Soul Travelers

Astonishments
Rogue Art (France), 2020.
One of the most righteous albums we've ever heard from trombonist Steve Swell – a great follow-up to his Soul Travelers album – and, like that one, done in this majestic mode that hearkens back to the hippest sounds of the loft jazz years! Swell's group is fantastic – with Jemeel ... CD (Jazz CD)
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s.
You may know Dinah Washington as a jazz singer – but at her start, she was also a hell of an R&B vocalist too – a side of her talents that's focused on very strongly in this set! If you love the jazz side of Dinah, don't worry – there's plenty of that here too – but the ... CD (Vocalists CD)
Capitol/ESC (Germany), 1974.
A jazz fusion classic from Atmospheres – a hip group led by reedman Clive Stevens, and which also features some usually-mellower players really taking off together! Stevens blows a great range of horns – electric and acoustic tenor, sopranos sax, and often a wah-wah pedal to inflect ... CD (Jazz CD)

California Three (Dwight Dickerson)

Windows
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978.
A really great group – one that we've never seen under this name before, but which features familiar names Dwight Dickerson on piano and Donald Bailey on drums, plus bass from Harvey Newmark! The album's got all the lyrical charm and sparkle of Dickerson's best from the time – a really ... CD (Jazz CD)
Eleven/Early Sounds (Italy), Late 70s.
They had us at "Italian", drew us in with "Erotic", and really won us over with the sounds in this sweet little set! The music here is all from the very small Eleven sound library – a smaller Italian imprint that cut these great grooves in the late 70s – at a time ... LP, Vinyl record album (Funky Compilations LP)

Rashied Ali & Frank Lowe

Duo Exchange – Complete Sessions
Survival, Early 70s. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A great one from drummer Rashied Ali – issued here on his own Survival label! Ali's perhaps best remembered for his spare backing behind Coltrane's solo sax on the record Interstellar Space – and we're tempted to say that there's a similar vibe going on here – as the record just ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Donald Bailey

So In Love
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978.
A fantastic record from jazz harmonica player Donald Bailey – maybe one of the few we've ever seen with his name in the lead, and a set that shows that he can easily rival some of the greats on his instrument at the time! The vibe of the set is a bit like some of the best jazz dates from ... CD (Jazz CD)
