Sam Sanders & Visions

Gift Of Love (180 gram pressing)
African Lady/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1983. (reissue)
A really beautiful album of spiritual soul jazz – featuring the Visions group of tenorist Sam Sanders, an ensemble that worked in Detroit for many years, but rarely made it out of the Motor City! This album's a fantastic demonstration of Sanders' talent and power – wonderfully ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Numero, Early 70s.
A well-done little collection – one that's maybe a second look at the Prix Label, covered by Numero Group in a previous collection – but which revisits the tapes and brings back a number of alternate recordings from the vaults of the label! The title's a reference to the cut "You ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Yasuhiro Kohno Trio + One

Song Of Island
AS Cap/BBE (UK), 1985.
The trio of pianist Yasuhiro Kohno work here with a really wonderful "+ One" – the vibes of Mashiro Kanno, who really adds a heck of a lot to the long-flowing grace of the tunes in the set! The album's a live one, but it's got all the warmth and creative intimacy of the best ... CD (Jazz CD)
Theresa/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1987. 2LP (reissue)
Really fantastic material from tenor genius George Coleman – the kind of set that really lets the leader open up and let his light shine – at a level that doesn't always happen on some of his other dates as a leader! When George Coleman is on, he's really on – and that's ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Sony/Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. Gatefold (reissue)
A record with a lonely-looking cover, but one that's got a really full, rich sound overall – sharp funky jazz arrangements served up by keyboardist Hiromasa Suzuki, then topped with bit of sitar as well! The vibe is different than any other jazz/sitar records of the time – as the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
44 Records/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1977. (reissue)
One of the most soulful albums to come out of the Australian scene of the 70s – and the crowning achievement of jazz singer Joyce Hurley – a vocalist we'd easily rank with Dee Dee Bridgewater for depth of righteous expression! Joyce's voice is definitely different than Dee Dee's – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists LP)

Matthew Halsall

Changing Earth EP
Gondwana (UK), 2022.
CD...$9.99 13.99
Four sublime tracks from trumpeter Matthew Halsall – all of which work together to give this EP release all the spiritual power of his full length albums! Halsall has a sense of majesty here that's undeniable – the continuing evolution of that style that's grabbed us strongly for over ... CD (Jazz CD)
Materiali Sonori/Spittle (Italy), Early 80s.
A great little set that takes off nicely from the classic Fuzz Dance work of Alexander Robotnick – a set that features some of his contemporaries on the Italian label of the same name, plus one of Alexander's own cuts too! The music here is great – early electro club, at a level that ... LP, Vinyl record album (Funky Compilations LP)
AJP/Now Again, 1970. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most tripped-out albums of funk you'll ever buy – a rare treasure with a very unusual history! The Stark Reality were a cool little combo formed to work on public television in Boston in the late 60s – and the combo featured some heavy guitars, fuzzed-up vibes, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Automat

Automat
EMI/Tempo Dischi (Italy), 1978. (reissue)
Sweet cosmic disco from the Italian scene of the 70s – a record that was produced at a time when the inspirations of Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream were really finding their way into the clubs! The group is really just the duo of Romano Musumarra and Claudi Gizzi– and the pair work ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Pacific Jazz/Blue Note, 1956. Gatefold
That's "Heath", not "health" – as you might think the title's misspelled – as in Jimmy Heath, who arranged most of the numbers on the set! Heath's contribution is a good one too – as it helps Baker create one of his most tightly-wrapped albums of the time, a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Elvin Jones

Genesis
Blue Note (Japan), 1971.
Elvin Jones rose to fame in the company of one of the greatest saxophone players ever – the mighty John Coltrane – and his post-Coltrane work like this really continues a keen respect for the role of the reeds in jazz – and really does a lot to push it forward as well! There's a ... CD (Jazz CD)
Atlantic/Iconoclassic, 1985.
A third great chapter in the career of the mighty Steve Arrington – a solo debut, after work in the groups Slave and Hall Of Fame – and a set that has Arrington maybe shining even more than ever in the spotlight! Rhythms are a bit more mid 80s than his previous work – but Steve's ... CD (Soul CD)
Sony/Cinedelic (Italy), 1972. Gatefold (reissue)
A really majestic album from Japanese keyboardist Hiromasa Suzuki – a set that maybe takes inspiration from the progressive side of the rock spectrum at the time, but which delivers the goods with a style that's definitely jazz all the way through! Suzuki plays both acoustic piano and ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Bruno Spoerri

Der Wurger Vom Towe
Finders Keepers (UK), 1966.
One of the most striking records we've ever heard from Swiss music legend Bruno Spoerri – a set that's very different from both his straight jazz recordings and his more experimental work – and instead a soundtrack for an obscure 60s film about a strangler in London! There's definitely ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks LP)
Westbound/Big Pink (South Korea), 1977.
A soaring set from the later years of Detroit funk powerhouse Westbound Records – a record that has the label moving into clubbier territory, but with all the sharpness they brought to their earlier releases! Detroit producers Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey are at the helm of the record ... CD (Soul CD)

Str4ta (Jean-Paul Bluey Maunick)

Str4tasfear
Brownswood (UK), 2022. 2LP Gatefold
A set that's even better than the first album from Str4ta – a great side project from Jean Paul Bluey Maunick of Incognito, and one that takes him back to the British 80s funk world from which he came! Gilles Peterson is Bluey's partner on the project – and he's opened the door to a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Neo Soul LP)
Blue Note, 1966. Gatefold (reissue)
Genius work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – one of his most solid sides as a leader from the 60s, and a well-deserved treasure in the Blue Note catalog! The album's quite different than the straight soul jazz of Blue's early days on Riverside – or the more arranged dates of the late 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Brother/Capitol, 1972. 2CDs
Two great Beach Boys albums from the early 70s – plus the bonus ep of material from Holland, and other bonus tracks too! The Carl & The Passions album is a bit of a shift for The Beach Boys – as you might guess from the Carl & The Passions billing on the cover! The record's ... CD (Rock CD)

Ayanda Sikade

Umakhulu
Afrosynth (Netherlands), 2022. 2LP (reissue)
Drummer Ayanda Sikade is a hell of a force on the contemporary jazz scene in South Africa – and here, he steps out with a voice that's all his own – drawing a bit on the older legacy of his nation's jazz, while also bringing in some of the more spiritual currents of the global ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
