✨✧ VariousBrownswood Bubblers Volume 12 Part 1– Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2017. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A dozen volumes in – and this wonderful series is still going strong – an incredibly solid, incredibly trustworthy collection of all that's great in the global underground! Gilles Peterson has been opening up our ears for decades, and he's never let us down – and, as before, there's a rich array of forward-thinking music here – from lyrically poignant club-ready soul, to neo classic spiritual jazz, to modern funk, and beyond – all tracks that have a sound that's way hipper than the mainstream, and a sense of class that few artists can touch. Titles on this vinyl part 1 include "Stop Rewind" by Slim with Ella Mae, "Refugee Song" by Buttering Trio, "Rosie" by Wayne Snow, "No Time To Lose" by Madison McFerrin, "Could You Be Me" by Kathy Kosins & Paul Randolph, "Gotta Get Out" by The Pendletons, "Red Planet" by Chip Wickham, "Are You In Peace" by Selebyone, and "La Mano" by Stimulator Jones.

Tino ContrerasLa Noche De Los Dias ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $21.99 22.99
A brilliant late statement from Tino Contreras – the legendary Mexican drummer who's been part of the jazz scene in Mexico City for decades – and who can still give the world wonderfully vibrant music like this! There's a deeply spiritual vibe to the record – a sound that's like some of Tino's most far-reaching work of the late 70s – and the group here features added percussion alongside piano, organ, saxes, and guitar – both acoustic and electric, which creates a great bridge in the sense of sound – as the music swirls together with a sense of majesty that almost recalls the best Latin America projects of Gato Barbieri on Impulse Records. All tunes are originals by Contreras, delivered with a fantastic spirit by the group – and titles include "Mascaras Blues", "Nina Yahel", "El Sacrificio", "Al Amanecer", and "Malinche".

DoomcannonRenaissance ... CD
Brownswood, 2022. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A stunning debut from Doomcannon – a set that's billed as a love letter to his native London, and which bristles with the best sort of experimental energy of that city's contemporary scene! As with work from some of his contemporaries, Doomcannon has a way of taking jazz roots and pushing them way past conventional generic descriptions – handling most of the instruments here himself, in a blend of acoustic and electric elements – soaring drums one minute, a found sound the next, echoed by a moody keyboard line, or a dreamy trumpet solo – and opening the door to so many other elements along the way! Very much in the spirit of Chicago experiments from International Anthem, too – with titles that include "Thesis", "Amalgamation", "Black Liberation", "This Too", "Times", "Dark Ages", and "Entrance To The Unknown".

MaishaThere Is A Place ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2018. Used ... $9.99
A record with a soaring spirit from the contemporary London scene – a fantastic full-length statement from Maisha, a group we'd heard about over the years – but are only now getting a chance to enjoy! The group's led by drummer Jake Long, but features this really tremendous work on tenor and flute from Nubya Garcia – who's got a majestic approach that's very much in the best spiritual jazz modes, but which also maybe gets a bit more personal at times too – especially on the passages with flute, which really brings a lyrical beauty to the record – and the group also features guitar, keyboards, bass, and two more percussionists! Long's rhythm progressions are nicely inventive, and very organic – and the sound is fleshed out at times by the slight addition of added strings, harp, and a bit of trumpet – all to underscore the more righteous currents in the music. Really fantastic – one that might knock Kamasi Washington off your turntable – with titles that include "Osiris", "Azure", "Kaa", "There Is A Place", and "Eaglehurst/The Palace". CD

Secret Night GangSecret Night Gang ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2022. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Secret Night Gang have a cartoony look on the cover – but the British funk combo play with a richly soulful sound that's overflowing with color and life – and which will definitely mean that they won't be a secret for long! The group mix in a fair bit more jazz than other contemporary funk groups – clearly working with chops that are honed through all the experience of the individual members of the collective, fused together with great arrangements from saxophonist Callum Connell, topped with vocals from Kemani Anderson, and woven together with some great Fender Rhodes and horns. Given Anderson's vocal strengths – a Brit soul vibe that's right up there with Omar or Shaun Escoffery – the album's as much of a soul record as it is a funky one – done with a classic vibe that draws on 70s roots, but updates the sound in the best 21st Century soul tradition of the Brownswood label. Titles include "Journey", "Beautiful Day", "The Sun", "Lonely", "Fall In Love", "Wanna Be With You", and "Captured". CD

Brownswood (UK), 2022. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
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 lot of talents from the underground, both classic and contemporary – in a lineup that features vocals from Valerie Etienne, Omar, and Emma Jean Thackray – and work from trumpeter Theo Croker! Keyboardist Peter Hinds is also great, and has a legacy that goes back on the British scene to work in Light Of The World and Atmosfear, both seminal groups – and titles on the album include "Bad Weather", "To Be As One", "Turn Me Around", "City Sounds", "Lazy Days", "Find Your Heaven", "Night Flight", "Why Must You Fly", "Virgil", and "When You Call Me".

✨✧ VariousIndaba Is ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2021. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic overview of contemporary work from the South African scene – most of it jazz-based, and brought together here as a great discovery of underground material we never would have heard otherwise! The set follows in a similar spirit to other Brownswood label explorations of the contemporary scenes in London and Havana – and like the music on those collections, there's a real genre-expanding sound going on here – plenty of jazz-based solos, but often mixed with vocals, keyboards, and a range of inventive touches – tying older South African currents with a more righteous, more expansive global vibe that's not only wonderful – but which comes off without any sort of overdone elements. The music is far past the world music cliches of previous decades – truly revolutionary and instantly timeless – with titles that include "All Ok" by Lwanda Gogwana, "Umthandazo Wamagenge" by The Brother Moves On, "Dikeledi" by Thandi Ntuli, "Prelude To Writing Together" by The Ancestors, "Ke Nako" by Bokani Dyer, "What Is History" by The Wretched, "Umdali" by Sibusile Xaba, and "Abaphezulu" by Iphupho L'Ka Biko.

✨✧ KokorokoCould We Be More ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
London's Kokoroko are a group with roots in many traditions and global modes – but they've also got a cohesive jazz-based sensibility that really makes the whole thing come together – and makes their music feel fresh and new, instead of a contemporary take on older modes! There's definitely strands of West African styles that run through the record, with vocals on a number of cuts – but those are offset by these prominent instrumental passages too – always given lots of different inflections, depending on the tracks – as the group have a lot to draw from in an octet lineup that mixes together trumpet, keyboards, alto, trombone, guitar, and plenty of percussion. Titles include "Age Of Ascent", "Something's Going On", "Blue Robe", "Home", "War Dance", "Those Good Times", "Soul Searching", and "Ewa Inu". CD

✨✧ Shabaka & The AncestorsWisdom Of Elders ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic jazz group from the contemporary South African scene – one who've got a very righteous vibe, and a sound that's maybe even more far-reaching than any jazz we've heard from that scene back in the 60s or 70s! The group's led by Shabaka Hutchings on tenor, but is a very collaborative ensemble – with these tremendous upfront vocals from Siyabonga Mthembu, a singer with a very unique approach, and a spiritual current that we'd rank right up there with work by Leon Thomas, Dwight Trible, or Joe Lee Wilson, even though Mthembu's very much his own man. The group's also got two other great horn players – Mthunzi Mvubu on alto and Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet – plus Fender Rhodes and piano from Nduduzo Makhathini, and a wonderfully early array of bass, percussion, and drums – which lay down a fantastic groundwork for each tune. The music starts somewhere in the spiritual territory of the post-Coltrane scene – but really takes off immediately with its own individual spirit – ala Kamasai Washington – and the performance is live and unadorned, without some of the studio efforts that show up on other Brownswood label releases. Beautiful work throughout – an instant classic that we'd rank right up there with the best material by folks like Nat Birchall or Matthew Hallsall, but very different too. Titles include "Nguni", "Mzwandile", "Joyous", "The Sea", "The Observer", and "Give Thanks". LP, Vinyl record album

OkuteOkute ... CD
Chulo, 2021. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A contemporary Cuban group, but one who fit easily in the long cultural legacy of Havana – as the combo have a way of taking timeless modes and making them come alive again in all new ways – often really stripping things down to their roots, with an intimate, earthy presentation that you wouldn't even find on classic Cuban records from many years back! In a way, the style here is similar to some of the recent Gilles Peterson/Brownswood Records projects from Havana – really tapping into the overlooked richness that still flows from the city's corners with a group like this – heavy on percussion, working in a variety of rhythms, often with guitar or tres in the mix – and topped with some wonderfully soulful vocals. Titles include "Caridad", "Na Na Saguey", "Devuelvame La Voz", "Rumbarimbula", "Gaston's Rumba", and "Chichiribako". CD
