Akerblom & ZengerAkerblom & Zenger – Live At Roma Jazz 2015 ... LP
Jazzaggression, 2015. New Copy ... $19.99
A beautifully spiritual set of duets between bassist Teemu Akerblom and saxophonist Mike Zenger – playing together here without any other instrumentation at all! Akerblom sets things up in a modal mode on most numbers – but mellower, without any piano or drums – and Zenger then blows these long, soulful solos on alto sax and flute – the former with a tone that's often quite deep, with a great deal of feeling. Things get slightly more outside and improvised as the set moves on – a shift that gives the whole thing a bit of a loft jazz vibe – and titles include "Peaceful Mornings", "So One Has To Go", "Abstract Blues & The Truth", "Frozen Land", and "Aurajoen Rannoilla". LP, Vinyl record album
(Numbered limited edition of 250!)

Aleksi HeinolaAleksi Heinola Quintet (10 inch) ... 12-inch
Jazzaggression (Finland), 2020. New Copy (pic cover)... $15.99
A contemporary Finnish group, and a great one too – a combo who play with the sharp, soulful tones of a Blue Note lineup from the 60s – but all without ever sounding like they're trying to copy that mode too much! Instead, these guys just have a proud, confident sense of their strengths – which they bring to their music in a wonderful way – tight rhythms from Mikael Jakobsson on piano, Daniel Franck on bass, and Aleksi Heinola on drums – topped with soaring solo work from Mikko Gunu Karjalainen on trumpet and Manuel Dunkel on tenor! The set's got this mix of sophistication and swing – a bit like late 60s work by Hank Mobley or Lee Morgan – and this 10" LP features three more tracks from the original album sessions not on the main record – "Bouncin At The SUP", "Book's Bossa", and "Chasin The Spiri". 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 250 copies.)

Carl M Neumann/Christian Reim QuartetLive At Molde International Jazz Festival 1976 ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1976. New Copy ... $24.99 27.99
Beautiful live work from alto saxophonist Carl Magnus Neumann – a Norwegian player with a richly expressive tone and a very fresh groove – working here in a group that's co-led with pianist Christian Reim! Neumann's a player we won't hear often – and he shines wonderfully on this date – stretching out in long, creative lines that are totally great – often slightly poetic and filled with feeling, in rhythms that are quite unusual for the time. The group's a quartet, with Christian Reim on piano, Bjorn Kjellemyr on bass, and Ole Jacob Hansen on drums – and although all players are clearly acquainted with some of the newer ideas in jazz at the time, they also nicely keep things inside on most tracks – with a subtle swing that really suits Neumann's tone. Titles include "Hippie", "Den Fandenivoldske", "Goodbye", "The Man I Love", "Goodbye II", and "Diplomatologi". LP, Vinyl record album

Christian Reim SextetMona Lisa – Moldejazz 1973 ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1973. New Copy ... $24.99 27.99
A real masterpiece from pianist Christian Reim – an unissued live set from 1973, conceived as one long suite for a very modern sextet! The music is wonderful – full of all these subtle moments of feeling that we don't always hear in some of Christian's other work – mixed with bolder passages of free improvisation that really make the most of the lineup that includes Ditlef Eckhoff on trumpet, Knut Riisnaes on tenor and flute, Carl Magnus Neumann on alto and soprano, Terje Venaas on bass, and Espen Rud on drums. Most of these players are top-shelf talents from the Scandia scene of the 70s – able to swing inside and step outside with effortless ease – which they do beautifully throughout the six-part suite entitled "Mona Lisa".

Ville Vannemaa CassiopeiaVille Vannemaa Cassiopeia (10 inch) ... 12-inch
Jazzaggression (Finland), 2020. New Copy (pic cover)... $15.99
A group with players that you probably can't pronounce, but a sound that will grab you right away – a fantastic combination of vibes, saxes, and trombone – all set to some really great modal rhythms! The combo is led by Ville Vannemaa, who blows tenor and bass clarinet – but the quintet is clearly a very cohesive lineup, and work together with a very fresh, very individual sense of rhythm and tone! Panu Savolainen plays vibes, Kasperi Sarikoski trombone, and rhythm is from the duo of Heikko Remmel on bass and Jaska Lukkarinen – on a batch of originals by Vannemaa. Limited 10" features two tracks not on the album – "Ring The Bell" and "Bacta Tank Blues". 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 250 copies.)

✨✧ Bird Curtis QuintetNeeds B (with bonus CD & download) ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic gem from the British scene of the late 60s – music by a group who played in relative obscurity, but who were very much at the top of their game! The quintet have a tenor/trumpet balance that's something of a legacy from earlier UK groups – such as those with Ian Carr and Don Rendell, or maybe some of the Tubby Hayes combos – a mode that's swinging modern jazz, with lots of original writing by the members of the group – packing a lot into a little, but with a vibe that's totally great – and very individual! The songs burst out with a great sense of tone and color – often a hint of modal structure in the rhythm – performed by the lineup of Ian Bird on tenor and alto, John Curtis on trumpet, Ray Shea on piano, Daryl Runswick on bass, and Tim Wolley on drums. All group members, save Wolley, contributed material – and titles include "Needs B", "Johnny Plonk", "Bossa For Bev", "Nothign Yet", "Birthday Girl", "The Buttertree", and "Vanessa". Also, the set was never issued at the time – this is its debut! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Greg Foat, Paul Armfield, & Ken BlackGone To The Dogs (10 inch LP) ... LP
Jazzaggression (Estonia), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool trio set from the mighty Greg Foat – working here with two other musicians grabbed on the fly for the recording session – but with results that are every bit as deep as any of his previous projects! Foat plays moody Fender Rhodes and Roland Juno – with this nicely building slow-funk style on the title track, "Gone To The Dogs" – served up in two parts that really let the tune gestate and grow nicely! "Zola's Eyes" has maybe a warmer jazz approach overall – great basswork from Paul Armfield, which brings out some fantastic currents in the Rhodes – and the set closes with "In The Dog House", which has some great funky drums underneath the keyboards. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jaan KumanJaan Kuman Instrumental Ensemble ... LP
Jazzaggression (Estonia), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible funk from the Estonian scene of the 70s – grooves so rare, the Iron Curtain kept them locked away from most of the Western world! This excellent collection finally brings these gems to light – and showcases not only Jaan Kuman's tight talent for lead trumpet solos – on a par with some of the best Freddie Hubbard CTI work of the 70s – but also his wonderful ear for larger arrangements – jazz backdrops that mix acoustic and electric elements beautifully, often with a sense of soul and sentiment that's completely sublime! There's slight echoes of European soundtrack modes in the music – but the overall presentation is definitely jazz, and the tight work of the leader and other players make the tunes plenty damn funky throughout – like a lost MPS gem from the glory days. Titles include "Hey Boys Try Harder", "Contrasts", "Caprice", "Wheels", "Terminus", and "Globus". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Webster LewisLive At Kongsberg Jazz 1971 ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally great work from the legendary keyboard giant Webster Lewis – very different than the major label records he cut in America during the late 70s, and instead this wonderful blend of jazz, funk, and soul! Webster plays Hammond, and spins out tunes that start slow, then build nicely – sometimes instrumental, sometimes with vocals from singer Judd Watkins, in a style that pushes from a 60s soul jazz vibe into much more spiritual territory! The feel is similar to his Live At Club 7 material, also recorded in Europe around the same time – and it's a great picture of a much more powerful jazz side of Lewis that wasn't recorded in the studio. The rest of the group features Bobby Greene on alto, Stan Strickland on tenor and flute, and Jimmy Hopps on drums – and titles include "Sunshine Blossom", "Glory Of Morning"," Pinout", "The Look Of Love", and "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered, limited edition of 250 copies. Note: This pressing has a very slight warp, common to all copies we have – but it plays fine, and is very limited, so we're still offering them for stock.)

✨✧ Jan SimonsenJan Simonsen Quintet (with bonus download) ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
You've probably never heard of pianist Jan Simonson, but that's also because this gem of a record was never issued at the time – a crime that might have made Jan a much more widely-appreciated player on the European scene of the 70s! The set was recorded in a church in Norway – a good setting for the mix of spiritual and modal modes in the music – on long tracks that draw plenty of energy from Simonson's work on Fender Rhodes and piano, topped with flute from Svein Hansen, saxes from Trond Mathisen, bass from Kristian Rostad, and drums from Thor Bendiksen – a group who are loose and open, with plenty of room for solos – but always rhythmic and moving strongly forward in the right direction! Titles include a very long take on "Afro Blue" – plus "Martin", "Agnus", and "Fire Sju". LP, Vinyl record album
