Tohru Aizawa Quartet
Tachibana

This isn’t just vintage Japanese jazz: its private-pressed, collector-baiting Japanese jazz that was once so rare, many doubted that it even really existed.

David Axelrod
Song Of Innocence

Long awaited reissue here from David Axelrod, who made a touching tribute to poet William Blake in Song of Innocence. Deceptive in its welcoming, cozy melodic furniture, it becomes an odd, illusory piece of work, infused with unexpected chords, jazzy timbres and baroque displacements. Axelrod's songs never end...view item »

Dan Kye
Joy, Ease, Lightness

Jordan Rakei has a side-project that releases on Rhythm Section International. Makes sense once you think about it. Anyway, Rakei’s work as Dan Kye is much better than the Jeff Buckley-type thing he does under his given name. The four tunes of Joy, Ease, Lightness...view item »

Michael Jackson
Thriller

If you've not already bought the standard vinyl for 1p at a charity shop at any time over the last twenty years then now is the time to catch to with what Michael Jackson was doing in 1982 on this special picture disc edition.

Michael Jackson
Off The Wall

Thriller may have been better known but Off the Wall was Jackson at the top of his game. This was the pre-surgery, pre- being 'friends' with children Jackson when he was fully focussed on music and had a point to prove. Although his fifth solo album it was his first with Quincy Jones at the helm and the first where he had complete creative contr...view item »

Hailu Mergia
Yegojam Marnesh / Yegle Nesh

Victor ‘Tiklah’ Axelrod has taken two of Charles Bradley’s soulful masterpieces and given them a reggae recharge.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio
Evil In Oslo

Hedvig Mollestad Trio are led by Hedvig Mollestad (surprise surprise), who is properly trained in jazz music: here though, she leads her trio into darkly funky territory that is more influenced by heavy psychedelic rock, somewhere her gnarly guitar chops sit very comfortably. Evil In Oslo is a live docu...view item »

Sun Ra
Singles (The Definitive 45s Collection Vol. 1: 1952-1961)

Definitive collection gets bandied about quite a lot, but this one is undeniably so. Covering the singles from Sun Ra released between 1952 and 1991.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
Soul Time!

"Soul Time" opens with "Genuine" pt. 1 & 2, a couple of JBs-style funk numbers, and it's the funkier stuff that carry most of the weight here:"Genuine", "He said I can", "Taxes" and "When I come home" are all smoking good tunes. Sharon Jones goes into a dance craze when she does "When I come home" live, doing the boogaloo, the funky chicken ...view item »

Prophet
Right On Time

Unsure about the album art on this one. Is he suggesting that he is the prophet, overlooking the universe from the 1980's before descending down to earth today to save us from the absolute mess we find ourselves in? If that is the case, I welcome him. Right On Time is a 7" release from the aforementioned&nbs...view item »

Jungle
Heavy, California / Cherry

Jungle gear up for the release of their sophomore LP For Ever with another light dusting of alt-soul. ‘Heavy, California’ and ‘Cherry’ are par for the course, all polite funk grooves and snapback-and-a-pair-of-Huaraches falsetto. This is the sort of breezy whimsy that sinks soft claws into radio ...view item »

Wayne Shorter
Emanon

Well, this is a production and a half; I mean, Blue Note have really gone to town in the presentation and packaging for this one. As, of course, befits the stature of the man who recorded the work: the titan of jazz, of music and of art, namely Wayne Shorter. The record in question is Emanon and here it...view item »

Spencer Zahn
People Of The Dawn

Jungle
For Ever

Jungle is massive. Jungle is unstoppable. Jungle For Ever. The posh soul duo have swapped the townhouses of Shepherd’s Bush for the penthouses of Los Angeles in a bid to be more … something.

Adrian Younge
Voices Of Gemma Instrumentals

‘Instrumental’ records often come off like vanity projects that only ever have real appeal for the producer and a very select number of die-hard completists. Not so Adrian Younge’s Voices Of Gemma.

Peter Brötzmann Octet

Happy Man

More competent modern funk/soul from XL darlings Jungle here. ‘Happy Man’ and ‘House In L.A.’ are the first new material from the group since all that fuss about them and their Millennial take on blue-eyed soul in the mid-2010s.

Sun Ra
Thunder Of The Gods

Previously utterly unheard, here is an album of Sun Ra material recorded around about fifty years ago (hard to say with precision due to the uncertain nature of Sun Ra scholarship).

Miles Davis
Kind of Blue

It may seem ironic that the biggest-selling album in jazz history is such a subtle and understated beast - perhaps less so when you consider it as a sublime masterpiece of subtlety and understatement.
