Trane's Blues

Reissue of a couple great early Miles Davis and John Coltrane cuts.

Preacherman
Preacherman Plays T.J. Hustler’s Greatest Hits

Tim Jones is one of those oddballs that you can neither imagine nor plan for. Back in the 1980s Jones performed in Las Vegas lounges under the name of Preacherman.

Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells
Everything's Getting Older

A fascinating collaboration here between ex-Arab Strap mumbler Aidan Moffat and Glaswegian experimental jazz composer and pianist Bill Wells. This really works. It's beautifully recorded and as would be expected the vocals and piano are to the fore, but it never slips into a rut. The album's centrepiece seems to be the shimmering, achingly beaut...view item »

Dick Dickson
In The Pocket

Sasac
Future Disc

2016 was a different time. Sexy Swede Sasac’s funky Future Disc EP made its first appearance online, but only now do the kind folk at Fasaan Recordings recognise its commercial brilliance.

Prince
Sign 'O' The Times

Look people, this is literally Sign ‘O’ The Times by Prince. Arguably this is the purple one at the very peak of his hit-making powers.

The record was a r...view item »

It's Monk’s Time

Thelonious Monk’s 1964 LP It’s Monk’s Time gets the reissue treatment courtesy of 8th Records. At this time in his career Monk was damned if he did and damned if he didn’t. Many scorned his avant style on the keys, but when he turned in a relatively more sedate outing in the form...view item »
