Seratones
POWER

Seratones, fronted by Louisiana-based singer AJ Haynes, returns with a suitably titled sophomore album POWER. Her backing band now bolstered by the addition of two new players, and shows Haynes’ voice to be flexible to the demands of rock, soul and dance music, and sees her lyrics reflect the personal and political.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio
Enfant Terrible

Sold out - sorry!

Richenel
La Diferencia

A hit in his native Holland throughout the 1980s, Richenel was originally an art-school squatter in Amsterdam making lo-fi bedroom pop tapes before that was a proper thing. This album has been circulating in the lost-gems end of the blogosphere for some years, and now re-issuers extraordinaire Music From Memory are giving it a second chance on vinyl. It’s worth checking - punky funk in the vein of ESG, the lo-fi recording gives it great warmth and depth.

Alice Coltrane
Transfiguration

Sold out - sorry!

Pastor T.L. Barrett and The Youth For Christ Choir
Do Not Pass Me By Vol. II

Following up the cult success of the much-beloved Like A Ship… Without A Sail in 1971, Do Not Pass Me By was the even more limited successor two years later. Chicago’s Pastor T.L. Barrett once again took the 40-piece Youth For Christ Choir and laid down ten more yearning, soaring spiritual tracks. 

Naosuke Miyamoto Sextet

Resavoir
Resavoir

Chicago-based jazz collective Resavoir look to deliver on the early hype, which garnered them patronage from Gilles Peterson among others, with their debut self-titled album. Led primarily by Will Miller of indie band Whitney, their take on jazz has been lo-fi, electronically enhanced with loops and samples. 

Sonny Rollins
Sonny Rollins - On Impulse!

A re-issue of Sonny Rollins On Impulse! - a utilitarian title given to jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins’ first album for Impulse! Records. Teaming up with the likes of Ray Bryant, Walter Booker and Mickey Roker in 1965, the star took on five jazz standards of the time, and the results were some of his most dense and electrifying performances of his career.

Makaya McCraven
Universal Beings

Get ready for some more Epic Jazz -- 2018 has been another good year for it, what with Kamasi and all -- it's hot jazz drummer and producer Makaya McCraven with his latest LP 'Universal Beings'. The record was cut at two intimate live sessions and two impromptu studio sessions, in four cities: New York, Chicago, London and L.A. A total of 15 musicians worked with McCraven -- stellar improvisers all -- with Shabaka Hutchings, Nubya Garcia and Jeff Parker being but three of them. Double LP or double CD, on International Anthem Recording Co.

Damon Locks / Black Monument Ensemble
Where Future Unfolds

Major work from Damon Locks and a fifteen-piece group he has gradually built up called Black Monument Ensemble. Where Future Unfolds began as a solo work of sound collage, by the time his group performed it at Garfield Park Botanical Conservatory in Chicago, where this live recording was made, it had become an epic of African-American music, encompassing gospel, avant-jazz, and fierce drum machine groove. A richly compelling performance, on International Anthem.

SEED Ensemble
Driftglass

Having this week secured a nomination for the 2019 Mercury Prize, Driftglass is the debut studio album from London-based jazz collective SEED Ensemble. A ten-piece band of young musicians spearheaded by composer and saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi, they combine European, African and Caribbean rhythms into spellbinding original creations. 

Omar Apollo
Friends

Omar Apollo is a genre-straddling Mexican-American singer. He fuses elements of jazz, R&B, soul, alternative and pop to create his own, wide-ranging, unique sound, similar, in that way, to the likes of Solange. Friends EP follows on from his 2018 debut EP, Stereo. Apollo is definitely one to watch this year. On Omar Apollo Records.

The Lewis Express
Clap Your Hands

A Leeds-based group formed of members of other local bands who also happen to be on the ATA label, The Lewis Express get even more unashamedly vintage in their sound on sophomore album Clap Your Hands. Tauter than their self-titled debut, they swing from boogaloo to Duke Ellington jazz in the blink of an eye. 

The Quiet Temple
The Quiet Temple

Who do we find inside The Quiet Temple? Well, primarily Rich Machin and Duke Garwood, joined by a rotating selection of musicians with past experience with Stereolab, Spiritualized/Coil (Thighpaulsandra) (among others). Together, this gang have created this self-titled debut album, a groovy, jazzy, live-feeling album that covers lots of tasty sonic ground.

Sarathy Korwar
More Arriving

Sarathy Korwar now lives in the UK. He was born in the USA and grew up in India. His music has grown from a Jazz foundation to incorporate traditional and modern indian, electronic, rap and folk sounds over time. More Arriving is his second album and is fired up by a divided Britain and his own experiences of living here. Confrontational, at times abrasive, Korwar is sending his passionate message out there.

The Jimmy Castor Bunch
It's Just Begun


Tubby Hayes Quartet
Grits, Beans And Greens: The Lost Fontana Studio Session 1969

Grits, Beans and Greens is the first appearance of a legendary lost session from British saxophonist Tubby Hayes, recorded in 1969 and fabled as some of his finest ever material. The standard single CD and LP versions present the music as a ‘lost album’, while the 2xCD hardback book package includes guts and all - demos, alternate takes and between-song studio chatter. 

Tuxedo
III

You ever listen to that band Chromeo and think "yes, the world needs more of these hipster duos knowingly parodying the sounds of 80’s funk"? This Norman Records™ language-lackey does. Every day I sit there, gazing out my window, wishing that I didn’t have to deal with all the Merzbows and Ziurs and Shellacs of this world. Wishing that a group like Tuxedo would come along and turn in a set of tunes so meticulous in their parody that they could quite easily have been taped in 1983. Clearly I’m not alone in this - MF DOOM, DāM-FunK, Benny Sings and other notable guests all grab a piece of the action on the band’s third album III. Sometimes dreams do come true.

Shabason / Gunning
Muldrew

Joseph Shabason and Ben Gunning, known here as Shabason / Gunning left the hustle and bustle of the city for Lake Ontario. They holed up in a cabin with their equipment (synths, saxes, guitars, drum machines) to make Muldrew. The result is a cinematic musical escape to the rural idylls of Canada inspired by John Martyn and the fourth worldism of Jon Hassell.

Ash Walker
Aquamarine

Ash Walker is a producer and multi-instrumentalist who has been rather prolific in his 5 year career so far. His latest slab of wax takes inspiration from jazz, trip-hop, funk, rap, dub, rock and blues and modern classical music. Every colour under the rainbow, every imaginable shape and texture, its all expertly assembled by walker and backed up by guest appearances from Jonathan Shorten, Laville, Marc Cyril and Yazz Ahmed.

Sunny Side Up

A new compilation arriving from Gilles Peterson’s current Brownswood Recordings label, Sunny Side Up focusses very specifically on the jazz, soul and funk underground scene in Melbourne, Australia. Engineer Nick Herrera hosted a week-long session in suburban studio The Grove to produce these nine tracks.

Patrice Rushen
Remind Me - The Classic Elektra Recordings 1976-1984

Superb compilation from Strut here that focuses on disco pioneer Patrice Rushden. Remind Me - The Classic Elektra Recordings 1976-1984 fronts the singles, 12” edits and fan favourites that Rushden cut for Elektra back in the day. Remastered from the original tapes, much of this is bespoke, classy disco straight from the source. Some cracking ballads are scattered across the album too. Remind Me is also a great one to play ‘spot the sample’ with. Contains 'Forget Me Nots'.

Roy Ayers
Silver Vibrations

Good ol' woozy Roy Ayers here on Silver Vibrations, one of Ayers's classic albums from 1983. Tracks such as "Good, Good Music", "Keep On Movin'" and the iconic "Chicago" are pure Ayers with blissful funk and soul grooves mingling with distinctive synth lines and vocals which can be both punchy and sleazy in equal manner.

Khruangbin
Hasta El Cielo (Con Todo El Mundo in Dub)

After 2018's Con Todo El Mundo blew everyone's collective mind, Khruangbin have turned to legendary dub producer Scientist to freeze that album's tracks in time. Doing this has enabled the band to find the spaces in their music, and make them wide screen. Hasta El Cielo offers a different perspective on the band's psych sound.

Boca 45
Forty Five

Boca 45, AKA, Scott Hendy from Bristol, has been DJ-ing for the past 20-odd years using the concise 7” single to fill dancefloors. The format is limited in length, which generally means you get a lean pop hit, allowing Boca 45 to make punchy sets. His original offering got him to play opening night at Banksy’s 2015 Dismaland show. 

Laville
The Wanderer

One of London’s most promising soul acts and a recent signee to the Acid Jazz label, Laville finally releases his debut studio album. Produced by the experienced Tristan Longworth, The Wanderer is intelligent, passionate and sounds remarkably uncalculated, put together mainly on the basis of first takes. 

Steve Reid featuring the Master Brotherhood
Nova

Sold out - sorry!

The Brand New Heavies
TBNH

Good to see The Brand New Heavies still going strong after all these years. TBNH - the first LP from the acid jazz pioneers for half a decade - recaptures the soulful, funky sound of the band’s golden years. This stuff is catnip for Craig Charles’ when he's in funk & soul mode, so if you like what he plays in his DJ sets then you’re probably going to get behind TBNH. The Brand New Heavies spread the love here too, with Mark Ronson coming in to produce their reworking of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘These Walls’.

Steamheat
Austin Funk

Originally released on tiny Texas-based indie Fable back in the seventies, Austin Funk is one of three albums released around that time by trombonist Michael Mordecai (who also features). Steamheat’s much sought-after rarity now gets a new life as part of the Jazzman re-issue series of hard-to-find jazz treasures. 

Lonnie Smith
Think!

The second LP from ya boy Dr. Lonnie Smith gets a reissue via Blue Note. 1968's Think! is one of those oft-imitated, rarely-improved golden-age jazz tomes. Backed by a group that consisted of Lee Morgan, David ‘Fathead’ Newman and Melvin Sparks, Smith and his organ deliver a set that combines classic bop sounds with Hugh Masekela’s South African style, spiritual jazz, funk and early fusion. The result is a hot-fingered masterpiece.

Luie Luie
Touchy

Sold out - sorry!

Skyy
Here’s To You

Here's To You. A very simple sentiment, but one that is filled with generosity and kindness and selflessness. It's a marvel that Skyy was able to create a track that lives up to that name, but he did it. First released in 1980, this track has been inspiring dance floors from New York to everywhere else. Utterly transcendent disco. 

Tommy Guerrero
Soul Food Taqueria

Genre-hopping musician and skateboarding legend Tommy Guerrero’s 2003 release Soul Food Taqueria returns as a 2LP reissue from Be With Records. The music dabbles in groovy, guitar-led soul-funk, often with a touch of melancholy. It’s warmly produced and as effectively as relaxed as was Tommy’s skating.

Brussels Art Quintet
Vasy-Y Voir

Extremely in-demand private press European jazz rarity here, getting a very desirable 7” reissue by Cacophonic. Brussels Art Quintet involved members of both COS and Babs Robert Quartet, and Vasy-Y Voir and its B-side represent their entire recorded output, and what quality output it is. Vital for collectors and great for listeners too.

KAINA
Next to The Sun

Kaina Castillo, born in Chicago but whose Guatemalan and Venezuelan heritage is evident in her pulsating music, has taken three years of strong EPs and singles to get to the release of her debut full-length album Next To The Sun. Exploring ideas of identity through Latin-influenced R&B joints, it could be one of the year’s finest debuts! 

Preservation Hall Jazz Band
That's It!

Preservation Hall Jazz Band were formed in New Orleans the early ‘60s by Alan Jaffe and carried forward since the early 90s by his son, Ben Jaffe. Myriad influences feed into their life story from the different musicians who’ve passed through their ranks to the sounds passing through their home city and their willingness to embrace change. That’s It was produced by Jim James of My Morning Jacket.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band
So It Is

Preservation Hall Jazz Band were formed in New Orleans in the early ‘60s. Many musicians have been through their ranks through the years, as well as many different musical influences. So It Is takes its inspiration from the band’s trip to Cuba in 2016. Their sound is stretched further by the presence of TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek in the producer's chair.

Airto
Samba De Flora

Airto is one of the most revered Brazilian percussionists having worked with everyone up to and including Miles Davis. Samba De Flora is his 1988 album that fuses Brazilian samba and bossa nova with jazz. Despite being incredibly well regarded it had been out of print until Soul Jazz Records intervened.

Gil Scott-Heron
Spirits

Spirits is a 1994 album by Gil Scott-Heron. It is being reissued for its 25th anniversary which means that we’re all getting old. The title track reinterprets the John Coltrane track of the same name. The Other Side, here in three parts, is a re-working of Heron’s 1971 track, Home Is Where The Hatred Is. This version was sampled by Jamie xx for the pair’s highly rated collaborative effort, We’re New Here, in 2011.

City of Women
City of Women II

City of Women existed as a group for two sessions in Finland in 1998, with Jimi Tenor and Edward Vesala’s self-built instruments joined by Iro Haarla, Jimi Sumen and Matti Knaapi. The first part of those sessions was released in 2000, the second part is here before you now in 2019. Better late than never though for these intense and intriguing recordings. Vinyl release on Sähkö Recordings.

Abdullah Ibrahim
The Balance

Abdullah Ibrahim is South African musical royalty and can easily claim living legend status in the rest of the world too. He’s been likened to Thelonious Monk and played piano with with John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Max Roach and Duke Ellington. Nelson Mandela regards him on a par with Mozart. Jabula is his brand new album, which he recorded in London. LP and CD on Gearbox.

Kamasi Washington, Gregory Porter

Shafiq Husayn
The Loop

Shafiq Husayn is one well-connected dude, with the cream of Los Angeles’ alternative bass music scene joining him for his new album The Loop. Thundercat plays some bass, Kamasi Washington brings his royal jazz, and Erykah Badu and Anderson .Paak feature on a track each. An essential scene-overview through the prism of one man’s creativity.

Bushman's Revenge
Bushman's Fire

Bushman’s Revenge are a jazz band who have often looked like a proggy rock band, and this live document is no exception. Bushman’s Fire is about right, as the group are on storming form during this Oslo gig. They even brought in extra sax and hammond players for extra firepower. Released by Rune Grammofon.

Seaside Lovers
Memories in Beach House

Seaside Lovers were a Japanese jazz/funk/soul/pop fusion three-piece. They featured Akira Inoue, Hiroshi Sato and Masataka Matsutoya, who were all artists in their own right. Memories In Beach House was originally released in 1983 and was never reissued on vinyl. This made it a highly sought-after artefact among collectors.

London's Portico Quartet, here with 'Untitled, Art in the Age of Automation #2', weave together jazz, electronica, ambient and minimalism in an addictive sound that journeys through textures, acoustic arrangements and grooving, widescreen minimalism.

Brian Ellis
Deep Clues

A vinyl release for eclectic musician Brian Ellis’ latest album Deep Clues, which first appeared back in January. Although a comparatively short collection at just eight tracks, Ellis covers a hell of a lot of ground, from smooth radio-friendly soul and funk to jazz and some avant-garde aspects of electronica.
