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)
Westbound/Tidal Waves, 1976.
A never-issued album by funky guitar legend Melvin Sparks – recorded right after his final record for the Westbound label, and appearing here for the first time ever! Sparks first rose to fame via funky work with Lonnie Smith and Lou Donaldson in the late 60s, the cut some killer albums of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Horace Tapscott & Michael Session

Live in Avignon, France – 1989
Village, 1989.
A beautiful lost performance from pianist Horace Tapscott – a set of duets with saxophonist Michael Session, recorded in France at the end of the 80s – and based around three long tracks, one penned by Tapscott himself – the other two by LA/Nimbus contemporaries Jesse Sharps and ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
SFP/Mo' Record (France), 1965.
One of the first true moments of genius from saxophonist Nathan Davis – a mid 60s European session cut for the tiny SFP label – and a record that's even rarer than his early classics for MPS! The sound here is similar to the MPS sides – a mixture of soul jazz and modal jazz ... CD (Jazz CD)
Blue Note, 1963. (reissue)
Classic Herbie Hancock from the early years – and a great mix of soul jazz and modernist inspiration! The record include a nice groovy "hit" – Herbie's "Blind Man Blind Man" – an obvious follow-up to "Watermelon Man", but still a standout track with ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Now Again, Mid 70s.
Rare singles and unreleased tracks from one of the funkiest artists on the 70s scene in Ethiopia – the amazing Ayalew Mesfin – a fantastic talent with a groove that's dying to be heard! Mesfin's music has maybe even more of James Brown groove than some of his funky contemporaries ... CD (Global Grooves CD)
Impulse/Jazzman (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. 2 CDs
An essential look at the spiritual jazz legacy of Impulse Records – a set that's maybe a bit overdue in this series, given that Impulse first opened the door to these modes with their recordings of John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders in the 60s! For some reason, Impulse had a perfect ear for ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)

London Jazz Composers Orchestra

That Time
Not Two (Poland), 1972/1980.
Very rare work from this legendary improvising orchestra – two different recordings from the first decade or so of the group's existence, at a time when they were hardly making any records at all! The first two long tracks are from a 1972 performances in Germany – and feature an early ... CD (Jazz CD)

Tony Allen & Afrika 70

Progress
Comet (France), 1977. (reissue)
An Afro Funk classic – killer solo work from Tony Allen – originally known as the drummer for Fela during his key years – stepping out here on his own with the Afrika 70 band! The album's a monster all the way through – every bit as great as any of Fela's 70s classics, but ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)
Metal Face, 1994. 2LP (reissue)
A legendary record from KMD – one that languished unreleased for far too long! Black Bastards has few tracks the maintain the jazzier sound of the first album, but they're mostly coming a little bit rawer, perfectly balancing their earlier style that gritty early 90s hip hop vibe. As solid as ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Atco/Get On Down, 1973. (reissue)
One of the coolest, funkiest records we've ever heard from Dr John – thanks to lots of guest help from The Meters! The vibe here is a bit tighter than some of Mac's previous records – not as trippy as his first few for Atco – but the sound is still nice and sharp, and Allen ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Atlantic, 1959. 2CD
A true giant step for John Coltrane – and one of the first albums to really showcase his talent as a writer – and his amazing ability for penning some of the most soulful, spiritual themes in jazz! Apart from the well-known title cut, the record's filled with other Coltrane classics ... CD (Jazz CD)
JCR/Bible & Tire, Early 70s.
A treasure trove of rare and unusual gospel recordings from the Memphis scene – work done for the tiny JCR imprint of the also-tiny D-Vine Records label – a real wellspring of under-discovered talent from the south! JCR was kind of the bush league for D-Vine – a custom label that ... CD (Gospel CD)
Staubgold (Germany), 2020. 2LP
A great assortment of funky jazzy cuts from recent years – a stunning package that shows just how much the love of jazz on the dancefloor has exploded in the contemporary underground – in ways that are so different than the modes of decades back! Yes, there was a time when "jazz&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album (New Grooves LP)
Third Man, 1930s/1940s/Early 50s.
A really beautiful collection of rare work pulled from a variety of different 78rpm singles – Indian classical music from the generation before Ravi Shankar and a few other artists gave it global exposure – with an especially strong focus on the use of the violin next to sitars and ... CD (Global Grooves CD)
Not Two (Poland), 5CD
A fantastic tribute to the ongoing contributions of the Not Two label – an important Polish imprint that's done plenty for improvised music over the past 20 years – with a wealth of studio releases, and live events such as the festival recordings presented in this beautiful set! The ... CD (Jazz CD)
Reprise/Omnivore, 1970.
A mindblowing set from Little Richard – a stunning comeback session from the start of the 70s – recorded at Muscle Shoals with a heavy funk component in the mix! Richard arranged and produced the record himself – and it's a beautiful illustration of his genius – hardly ... CD (Soul CD)
Lightin/Now Again, 1972. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Cosmic jazzy genius from Bubbha Thomas & The Lightmen – the kind of a record that sounds like it should have come out of Detroit or Chicago in the early 70s – and not the Texas scene from which the group hailed! The Lightmen have a vibe that reminds us a lot of The Pharoahs or some ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Mammal Hands

Captured Spirits
Gondwana (UK), 2020.
Maybe the strongest record so far from Mammal Hands – a set that really has the group growing in their sense of tone and color, and in the unique timing they bring to their tunes! The group is a trio, but not in a mode that you might be guessing – because next to the piano of Nick ... CD (Jazz CD)
Nebula Circle/Tidal Waves, 1980. (reissue)
The debut album from Shock – a Portland funky combo who would go on to release a few more albums on Fantasy Records, but who maybe sound their best here at the start! Shock have the look of some guys hanging out in leisure suits in the VIP lounge at Studio 54, but their sound is much sharper ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
