Prince
Planet Earth

Sony are reissuing some later albums by Prince. Here’s album No.32, Planet Earth, which originally saw the light of day via a free giveaway CD with some bloody newspaper or other. Now it’s being reissued on CD and purple vinyl (what else?!) so at last you can buy your copy without feeling the shame of buying certain publications. A few of his old cohorts played on the album, including Michael Bland, Wendy & Lisa and Sheila E. Includes the singles Guitar, Chelsea Rogers and Future Baby Mama.

Prince
3121

3121 was the 31st studio album by Prince. It was originally released in 2006. Sony are reissuing a bunch of his later albums, and this one will be pressed on vinyl for the first time. It’s weird and funky and beautiful, just like you’d expect from the small purple one. Purple coloured vinyl and CD on Sony.

Prince
Musicology

Musicology was the first of three albums Prince released in 2004 and his 28th album in all.  Prince intended the album to to be a musical education to those who listened which seems like a bit of an arrogant thing to say, but then, Prince wouldn’t have been Prince without having saying stuff like that. Anyway, perhaps buy a copy and get yourself educated. Double purple coloured vinyl and CD on Sony.

Clarence Séti
Jungle Quest

We don’t know much about this material that Clarence Seti put together in 1991, partly because it was only ever a demo CD. But all that matters is the music, these twelve tracks that we are now able to hear. Jungle Quest will certainly require you to have a taste for digital keyboards, and Seti really lays into his collection here, but this will charm many. Out on Lily Record.

Confessin' The Blues - Compiled by The Rolling Stones

There's a school of thought that all the best music was made between 50 and 100 years ago and humankind’s sonic capabilities have been in steady decline ever since. As if to prove this theory the Rolling Stones (no less) have compiled this exhaustive collection of all their favourite blues people and includes tracks by pioneers such as Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry and of course Robert Johnson.

Thundercat
Drunk

If you move in certain areas of music (the LA Brainfeeder / cosmic jazz axis and surrounds), you will appreciate Thundercat as a god-like figure. The man plays electric bass like nobody’s business, but he is also a mighty songwriter, and Drunk is his own record. It features an amazing cast of collaborators (Kendrick Lamar! Kamasi Washington!), and is presented on one CD or four 10” vinyl records.

David Axelrod
Earth Rot

Earth Rot was the third album by composer David Axelrod. It was also the final part of his Capitol trilogy which included Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience. It was originally released in 1970 and bemoans the state of the environment in L.A. at the time. This reissue is a 2LP version which adds an instrumental version of the original choral LP, a request Axelrod made before his death in 2017. Limited edition 2LP, includes 28 page booklet on Now-Again.

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. All remastered and packaged with rare photos, the original artworks, and session notes track by track. A pretty good way of learning the mysterious and mental ins and outs of the inimitable Sun Ra.

Birth of the Cool

What's left to say about Miles Davis? Birth of The Cool was originally released in 1957 and it brings together some of Davis's coolest from 1949-50. Most of the tracks were originally released on 10", 78RPM - those were the days! It's a comprehensive look at Cool Jazz and some of Davis's finest - a cool place to birth a Davis obsession or to just keep on bopping.

Alan Hawkshaw & Brian Bennett
Full Circle

While you might not know Alan Hawkshaw or Brian Bennett by name it’s quite likely that you’re familiar with their work. The library compositions of the pair have been sampled by everyone from Kanye West to Drake to The xx to Nas. Their latest LP Full Circle is classic stuff from the duo, all big-band modes and laid back jazz-funk.

Alan Parker
The Sound Of Soul

Originally released in 1976 as the instrumental accompaniment to Themes International's The Voice Of Soul, Alan Parker’s much-coveted record of library-soul now gets reissued by Be With Records. Original copies of The Sound Of Soul regularly fetch mega-money on the vinyl black market, so it’s a good job that this new edition comes in at a fraction of the price. Les Hurdle and Mike Moran - both members of the de-facto Themes International house band The Rhythm Section - also contribute a couple of numbers.

Mansur Brown
Shiroi

The Black Focus story grows ever more intertwined with Mansur Brown’s Shiroi. Brown contributed heavily to Yussef Kamaal’s acclaimed 2016 LP Black Focus. Earlier this year Kamaal Williams - one half of YK - set up a label of the same name as a home for his album The Return. Now Brown has become Williams’ first signing to the imprint. The virtuoso guitarist impresses across the eleven tracks of his debut record, marrying cascading licks with sloping neo-soul instrumentals.

Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards more experimental textures with acid/free jazz textures and spoken word narratives. They've been working on this since 1992 so it's about time we all dipped in.

Corduroy
Dad Man Cat

It could be argued that Corduroy were the finest exponents of tongue-in-cheek cinematic funk in the ‘90s. It could also be argued that that they were the only ones doing such a thing. Dad Man Cat was their debut album, originally released in 1992 on Acid Jazz. The album is mainly instrumental and could soundtrack a world where someone like Steve McQueen walks around a city in a roll-neck jumper looking cool. Red vinyl LP on Acid Jazz

Corduroy
High Havoc

High Havoc was the second album by cheesy-on-purpose London funksters, Corduroy. It was originally released in 1993. Here, they added brass to their sound thus expanding on their initial ‘cool movie soundtrack’ blueprint. Influences such as Curtis Mayfield show in their music. Reissue gold vinyl LP on Acid Jazz.

Corduroy
Out Of Here

Corduroy’s third album, Out Of Here, saw the band moving away from their ‘70s movie soundtrack style to a more song-orientated jazz-funk sound - a bit like a less annoying Jamiroquai. Elements of what is now known as Yacht Rock were beginning to poke through too - listen to Practice What You Preach. It was originally released in 1994 and features a well funky cover of Motorhead’s eponymous song. Reissue blue vinyl LP on Acid Jazz.

Running The Voodoo Down Vol. 2 - Explorations In Psychrockfunksouljazz 1965-77

Overlaps of jazz and rock music have often been abominable, but the precise area explored by Running The Voodoo Down is the particularly rich seam of, well, ‘psychrockfunksouljazz’. That’s the sixties-seventies sweet-spot where black musicians used all available means to create super-powerful, soulful, rhythmic music. Includes Isaac Hayes, John Coltrane and Sonny Sharrock.
