Al Hudson & the Soul Partners

Especially For You/Cherish (with bonus tracks)
ABC/Expansion (UK), 1977.
Two fantastic early albums by Al Hudson – working here with his initial group, The Soul Partners! First up is Especially For You – a record that's kind of a first chapter to all the excellent work by One Way to come – even though Al's not using that group name at this time! The ... CD

Eric Alexander

Leap Of Faith
Giant Step Arts, 2019.
The great Eric Alexander in a trio mode – soaring out with a lot more space and soul than some of his albums with a pianist – and that's saying a lot, given the wonderfully soulful sound of that work too! The style is a mode that Alexander has explored a bit over the years, but which ... CD

Al Hudson & The Soul Partners

Spreading Love/Happy Feet
ABC/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979.
A pair of ABC Records gems from Al Hudson & The Soul Partners – back to back on a single CD! Spreading Love is excellent early work from Al Hudson – a soulful talent who stood his own in the late 70s, forging an up-tempo funk sound that lived long past disco, and which was sort of ... CD
Motown, 1972.
A tremendous live performance from Marvin Gaye – recorded at the Kennedy Center in 1972, and based around his classic album What's Going On – yet handled in a completely different way! The set's not just a straight reading of the record – as the song order is different, and the ... CD

Jacky Giordano

Philopsis
Freesound/Digger's Digest (France), 1978. (reissue)
An album with an ancient-looking painting on the front, but a style that's pure 70s – served up here in a keyboard-heavy style from sound library giant Jacky Giordano! Jacky's given us plenty of funky records over the years, and this rare gem is definitely up with those 70s classics – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. 6CD
An amazing package – three great albums by The Fall, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Hex Enduction Hour – one of our key go-to albums by The Fall – a set in which all their early promise really came into focus – with even more wit and power than before! The ... CD
Gospel Friend (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. 2CDs
A wealth of female gospel from the early years of the genre – served up here on a double-length set that features tracks from some of the important stars of the time, plus a host of rare gems that we've never heard before! Most of the material here features a lead female singer with a ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s.
A fantastic collection of lesser-known gems from the 70s scene in Nigeria – music that's a great counterpart to better-remembered Afro Funk and soul from international giants like Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade! This set digs deep, and is a nicelly expanded version of a set that Soul Jazz ... CD
Constellation (Canada), 2019.
The fantastic fourth installment in the Coin Coin project by Matana Roberts – issued quite a few years after the third, but well worth the wait! Matana recently described herself as an "arts adventurer" – and that's a pretty great term for her role on the record, which is far ... CD
Sunnyside, 2019. 3CD
A trio of live performances from the duo of Kenny Barron and Mulgrew Miller – all concerts featuring just the two pianists working alongside each other, in a mode that has both players stretching out beautifully! There's no other instrumentation at all – no bass, drums, or horns – ... CD
Akenation, Late 60s.
Heady sounds from the Cambodian scene of the late 60s – a set of work that mixes together modes that may well have Cambodia sounding like the the most psychedelic nation in Southeast Asia! The music here is of two types – one a transformation of older Cambodian styles with a strong ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jukka Eskola Soul Trio

Steamy
Timmion (Finland), 2019.
An excellent group, and one with a really great concept – a fresh take on a format that was big in the 60s soul jazz scene, but spun out in a very unique way – both in terms of instrumentation, and in terms of the groove! Trumpeter Jukka Eskola heads the trio, which also features ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s.
A really tremendous collection of music – and one that really gets at the heart of the criss-crossing of Latin and African modes that took place on the Congolese scene of the 50s and 60s! Sounds and styles from Cuba and the Caribbean definitely influenced other African scenes, but they took ... CD

Buari

Disco Soccer
Makossa/BBE (UK), 1979.
A killer blend of African roots and American rhythms – and a set that definitely lives up to the disco promised in the title! Buari's working here with a host of New York musicians – jazzy players who include Randy Brecker and Jon Faddis on trumpet, Barry Rogers on trombone, and ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. 2CD
Who better to spend Halloween with than Lux and Ivy of The Cramps – a pair who almost act like it's the last day of October all year long! Lux and Ivy are well-known as collectors of strange and offbeat 45s from the late 50s and early 60s – and that period also coincides with a great ... CD

Jewell Gospel Trio

Many Little Angels In The Band
Gospel Friend (Germany), Mid 50s.
An essential collection of rare material by this important female gospel trio of the 50s – a group who's not only known for bringing a style to the music that was ever bit as great as male group gospel of the pre-soul years – but who also are the initial early home to later soul ... CD

Harlem Gospel Travelers

He's On Time
Colemine, 2019.
The fantastic full-length group of The Harlem Gospel Travelers – a quartet trained on the male group gospel modes of older acts like the Soul Stirrers or Violinaires – but one who really shine strongly with a voice of their own, thanks to a set of all original material, and some nice ... CD

Neue Grafik

Foulden Road
Total Refreshment Centre (UK), 2019.
A great little record that's jazz at the core, but a lot hipper too – a great statement from London keyboardist Neue Grafik, issued on the label of that city's hip Total Refreshment Centre club! Grafik plays plenty of great solos on piano, Fender Rhodes, and other keyboards – but there' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jose Mancliere

Doubout Pou Gade
JMD/Digger's Digest (France), Late 70s. (reissue)
An album that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before – served up by a percussionist who spent the mid 70s touring the Caribbean and South Pacific, and who seems to have absorbed a globe's worth of rhythms in the process! The album's probably closest to a jazz fusion album – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fredrik Ljungkvist

Atlantis
Moserobie (Sweden), 2019.
Very deft reed work from Fredrik Ljungvkist – heard here mostly in a trio, with a style that has him turning all these sharp corners along with the rhythms! Fredrik plays saxes and clarinet, always with a style that's deeply soulful and never too coldly modern – and which seems to come ... CD
