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.

Patterson Twins
Gonna Find A True Love / A Good Thing

Miles Away Records with a reissue of ‘Gonna Find A True Love’, a rare disco gem by Mississippi pair the Patterson Twins. You’ve all heard disco before so there’s not really much more we need to tell you about this one - it’s just really good, funky, soulful music. Comes backed by the gospel-soul number ‘A Good Thing', a track that appeared alongside ‘Gonna Find A True Love’ on the duo’s 1978 debut LP Let Me Be Your Lover.

Minoru Muraoka
Bamboo

Re-issue on CD and vinyl of a formerly ultra-rare Japanese jazz / breakbeat record used as source material for the likes of DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist among others.

Starcrost
Starcrost

Starcrost were a jazz/funk/ soul band who released their only album in the mid-’70s. Despite this possesing a sleeve like something you’d steer clear of in a charity shop, it is actually a highly sought after piece of wax - I mean, there is some serious bass and drum playing on here -  by collectors and DJs alike, as only 1000 of them were pressed. Jazzman are now reissuing the album to relieve all those crate-digging anxieties.

Takeo Moriyama
East Plants

One of them there Japanese jazz reissues here. Takeo Moriyama’s 1983 LP East Plants isn’t a particularly famous record, but it’s held in high esteem by those who know their J-jazz onions. Moriyama is the drummer here, and his careful yet commanding kit work powers his group through a collection of slightly spiritual, slightly avant post-bop. Interestingly there’s no piano on this album - the melodic stuff is left to reeds, bass and tuned percussion.

Kyriakos Sfetsas
Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol​.​2

Teranga Beat had so much fun putting out the first Greek Fusion Orchestra compilation that they’ve decided to do it all again. The GFO were set up by Kyriakos Sfetsas with the intention of creating jazz fusion that drew on the nation’s traditional musics. As such, the tracks on Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol. 2 combine library-funk rhythms with all manner of Greek styles and instrumentation. These tracks are previously unreleased.

Small Talk At 125th & Lenox

The late great Gil Scott Heron, here we have a reissue of his 1970s debut album Small Talk at 125th & Lenox.

Reissue on 180g vinyl.

Leyla McCalla
The Capitalist Blues

The Capitalist Blues. Too right mate. The third LP from former Carolina Chocolate Drop member Leyla McCalla finds her delving deeper into the folk sounds of her ancestry. That means New Orleans jazz, Haitian rara, Zydeco and early blues all get a look in here. The resulting record is a damn good time for all concerned.

Kutiman
Sakla Beni (featuring Melike Sahin)

Kutiman’s new single ‘Sakla Beni’ is a collaboration with Turkish singer Melike Şahin. This track is a righteous bit of psychedelic neo-soul, one that mixes together a thick fuzz-funk bassline, slow stomp of a groove and Anatolian rock production. The end result is not unlike those Khruangbin fellows everyone gets so excited about. The ‘Sakla Beni’ 7” comes backed with the ‘karaoke’ version.

Laurence Pike
Holy Spring

Former Liars/Bill Callahan/DD Dumbo collaborator and Szun Waves member Laurence Pike drops his second solo LP via The Leaf Label (Snapped Ankles, The Comet Is Coming). Holy Spring bracingly combines free jazz, electronica, post-rock and the pagan classical composition of Igor Stravinsky. It’s no coincidence that Holy Spring shares a word with Stravinsky’s seminal Rite Of Spring. Tracks like ‘Drum Chant’ sound like something from Music From Memory if it had been plied with peyote. Really cool record.

Los Coast
Samsara

Austin, Texas band, Los Coast, make soul music with a modern twist. The vocals of Terry Privott give a sense of the coolest ‘70s soul. The band cook up an energetic groove that blends psychedelic rock and the soulful funk of Bobby Womack, sprinkled with the dust of the Texan desert. Samsara is their debut album.

Jordan Rakei
Origin

Following a couple of years of buzz, guest feature spots and 100 million Spotify streams clocked up, New Zealand-born singer Jordan Rakei will be hoping to make the final push into mainstream superstardom with third album Origin. If recent single ‘Mind’s Eye’ is anything to go by, there’s no stopping him.

Lloyd McNeill
Treasures

Soul Jazz Records reissue another LP from the notable Lloyd McNeill. After putting out new editions of Asha, Tanner Suite and Washington Suite the label now dusts off 1976’s private press album Treasures. This is ebullient, flowing music that incorporates elements of various jazzes - spiritual, Latin and soul being the most prominent. McNeill’s glorious flute playing ties the thing together. Treasures is one to file next to those recent Horace Tapscott reissue that we got so excited about a few weeks back.

Teodross Avery
After The Rain : A Night for Coltrane

Teodross Avery here does a superb job of reckoning with the long shadow cast by John Coltrane over every subsequent tenor saxophonist, by recording After The Rain: A Night for Coltrane. This live performance spans various pieces from across Coltrane’s career, including 'Africa / Brass' and 'A Love Supreme'. Avery and his group are superb and spirited interpreters. On Tompkins Square.

David Wertman & Sun Ensemble
Earthly Delights

Lesser-heard free-jazz from 1978, led by the double-bassist David Wertman Earthly Delights features four pieces over two LPs, with Wertman’s fantastically rich and fluid (and self-taught) bass playing surrounded by drums, saxophone, flute and synthesiser. Its remarkable that this album has been under the radar for so long as it is a truly glorious listen. Reissued by BBE.

Fumio Itabashi Trio
Rise and Shine – Live at the Aketa's

Fumio Itabashi recorded this very fine live date at Tokyo jazz club Aketa’s in 1977, in fact prior to his first album release. His phenomenal piano lines lead his Trio  through three pieces here, with a classic and a cover culminating in the epic and ecstatic Rise And Shine. Reissued to vinyl by Studio Mule.

Exile One
Exile One

In 1970 Gordon Henderson moved to Guadeloupe to pursue a career in music. By 1973 he'd started his own back, Exile One. This reissue on Tidal Wave Music, of their 1974 debut, shows off the band's ability to mix together funk, soul, reggae, calypso and Haitian music. The result is fun as hell and demands that you get up and dance.

Seba Kaapstad
Thina

Seba Kaapstad is not a person but a group, and a highly-international one at that. They’ve assembled a real wonder of a record, with positive grooves and good-vibes tunes spread over twelve tracks. I guess Thina is global future-pop, rich with colours and touching on all the loveliest genres. Out on Mello Music Group.

Monstera Deliciosa

Australian vocal jazz with an inevitably Giles Peterson co-sign from Brisbane's Laneous. The project belongs to Lachlan Mitchell who has been showing off his soulful falsetto for years.

Collard
Unholy

Here’s rising star Collard with his debut Unholy. Raised in a Mormon household near South London, the 24-year-old deploys sultry falsetto over lithe songs of funky r’n’b-ish rock and pop. Tunes such as ‘Hell Song’ and ‘Warrior Cry’ are filled with tight instrumentation, pregnant pauses and personal lyrics.

Adrian Lim-Klumpes
Yield (Preludes & Fugues for Piano)

Adrian Lim-Klumpes has plied his pianist’s trade at the helm of bands including Tangents and 3ofmillions, generally working in a jazz-informed milieu. But, as solo album Yield’s sub-heading Preludes & Fugues for Piano suggests, this is a more classically informed release, presenting crystal-clear ideas that stand and breath in the sound-space. On Off Records.

Tenderlonious
Hard Rain

This new album by Tenderlonious, 'Hard Rain', looks like a nice mix of urban jazz and vintage hip-hop, with elements of ambient, funk, and trip-hop. Tenderlonious is not only a solo artist but the head of an up-and-coming record label 22a, a DJ, a producer, and multi-instrumentalist. This is clearly a one to watch.

Beat Incidental

Here's one for all of the people who want to get their scrobble numbers up. Alan Hawkshaw and Keith Mansfield worked together to create 32 tracks, some of which are under 10 seconds long. And you know what, a lovely 10 seconds they are too. Be With Records continue their raiding of the KPM archives, and if Beat Incidental is anything to go by, they probably shouldn't stop.

Somehow earthy and cosmic all at once. Out on Spiritmuse.

Takin’ Off is the highly regarded debut album by Herbie Hancock. It was originally released in 1962.

James Brown
Slaughters Big Rip-Off (Original Soundtrack)

The amount of huge artists from the funk/soul continuum who’ve soundtracked blaxploitation movies is just crazy. Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes and Marvin Gaye are just three of the all-time greats that produced scores for films of the genre during its early-’70s heyday. Even the Godfather himself Mr. James Brown got in on the act, teaming up with on-off compositional partner Fred Wesley to produce a typically high-wire set of tunes for 1973 flick Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off. Out of print for a minute, Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off (OST) has now been reissued by Polydor.

You Can't Steal My Joy

I see saxophones, I see dreadlocks... I hear jazz. This is the debut album from this London five piece who also blend afrobeat, hip-hop and grime into their concoction of sound. They've been doing pretty well for themselves (even playing at Quincy Jones birthday) and there's always room for one jazz album in the Mercury Prize. This will probably have a good a shout as any.
