Prince
Nothing Compares 2 U

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone. Prevent the dog from barking with ... the original record of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ by Prince. The first of what will likely be many everyday masterpieces to emerge from the vaults of the late legend, the track has been remastered from the original tapes and sent off into the world on a limited-edish 7”. Many people thought they'd never get to hear this, so take time to appreciate it.

Italo Funk

Where Italo Disco and Funk music mix, great things can come to pass. Soul Clap set out to prove this with their new compilation Italo Funk, and they achieved it with ease: just listen to these ten joyous cuts. Boot & Tax, Jolly Mare and Deep88 are all here, throwing out juicy basslines every which way. Double LP compilation.

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.

Larry Jon Wilson
New Beginnings

Larry Jon Wilson may have one of the loveliest voices I've ever heard, and yet odds are, you've never heard of him. Be With Records have taken on the important task of reissuing his early work, New Beginnings being his debut album recorded after a decade in corporate America. Sadly, he was never a huge success in his own time but his voice and its accompanying country but funky style are well worth trying on.

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.

Kumasi
I Know You Feel It

Kumasi were a enigmatic South African disco funk four-piece whose members also made up The Cannibals and Stimela. Due to the musicians being contracted elsewhere at the time, they weren’t allowed to reveal their identities, hence the enigma. I Know You Feel It was their only album recorded in the early '80s. Here we have 5 tracks from the album along with the South African classic track, Picnic. Double LP on Smiling C.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 1

Jack White’s Third Man Records project reaches its logical conclusion with a set of John Lee Hooker reissues. Originally released in 1973, Detroit And Beyond Vol. 1 collects some of the famed bluesman’s earliest recordings. Many of these tracks were cut at a studio but a stone's throw away from where the Third Man store now resides.

Eiji Nakayama
Aya's Samba

Over the past couple of years Mule Musiq offshoot Studio Mule has established itself as one of the go-to labels for Japanese jazz reissues. Much of its best material has been scavenged from the catalogue of Johnny’s Disk Record. Eiji Nakayama’s 1978 LP Aya’s Samba is Studio Mule’s latest catch. This is a collection of deftly groovy jazz tracks whose beats are rooted in salsa, funk and (of course) samba. It's a good thing this one's been reissued seeing as original copies go for megabucks.

Purple Image
Purple Image

*Extremely John Lydon voice* Purple Imaaa-aaaaaage! Purple Imaaa-aaaaaage! Of course, this LP actually has nothing to do with The Artist Formerly Known As Johnny. It’s actually a rare 1970 funk-rock record from Cleveland, Ohio band Purple Image. As one could probably guess from the title there’s more than a bit of Hendrix to this one. This reissue comes courtesy of Tidal Waves Music.
  • Vinyl LP (TWM23)

Nina Simone
A Very Rare Evening

You really shouldn’t need me to tell you who Nina Simone is. The important thing here is that this album has been out of press since 1979 and contains rare versions that just aren’t anywhere else, performances of songs by Aretha Franklin, Barry Gibb, Randy Newman and Pete Seeger and featuring performers Weldon Irvine and Gene Perla. Glorious.

Marvin Gaye
What's Going On

Immediately recognisable from the cover alone, What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye feels like an album that was never not there. The soothing and enthralling tracks like Mercy Mercy Me and What’s Happening Brother, feel like they have always existed somewhere, a testament to Gaye’s effortless craftsmanship and one of the myriad of reasons why this has become a classic LP and one that deserves to be in any respectable collection.

Rex Orange County
Apricot Princess

As you’d guess from the moniker, Rex Orange County is a bloke from Surrey - namely, multi-instrumentalist and Tyler, the Creator collaborator Alex O’Connor, not yet one-and-twenty but already singing about “flying back to LA” and needing “insurance on my emotions / I can’t get hurt again”. And this self-released LP is a jazzy collection of his crooning, potty-mouthed neo-soul and funky hooks.

The Love You Save

The Love You Save brings together lesser-know nuggets of American soul music in a similar way to the oft-referenced Anthology of American Folk Music put together by Harry Smith. Nicely packaged with 24 tracks spread over two LPs there’s some real gems on here: From the soulful title track by Joe Tex via the weighty funk of Hard Times by Baby Huey to the phenomenal mind-blower, This Bitter Earth by Dinah Washington. Limited edition double LP on Cairo Records / Mississippi.

Doug Shorts
Casual Encounter / Keep Your Head Up

Good things come to those who wait. That’s certainly true in the case of the wonderfully named Chicago soul singer, Doug Shorts. He’s been trying to get noticed since the ‘60s, but it took him until 2012 to actually release anything. Then he was able to release a few tracks, now stone classics, through Cherries Records. He’s now part of the Daptone family. Casual Encounter/Keep Your Head Up 7” one upbeat modern soul groove and one mid-tempo ballad. 7” on Daptone.

Cosmic Eye
Dream Sequence

Cosmic Eye released this music in 1972 and is now coming to you in 2014 via The Roundtable imprint. What we have is some (very) psychedelic jazz, sounding positively out-of-time and, indeed, a little cosmic. Dream Sequence is formed of two long-form pieces from this British collective, with a heavy eastern tip courtesy of its Indian-born players. Reissued, remastered and on 180g vinyl.

The Daktaris
Soul Explosion

Cheeky white-boy afrobeat revivalists The Daktaris went so far as to assume fake Nigerian aliases for their debut and only album Soul Explosion. The whole thing looks like a crate-digger’s wet dream, but was actually released in 1998. But! it's still one hell of a funky afrobeat affair, it's been remastered, and the folk at Daptone are reissuing it.

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.

Andrew Cyrille, Wadada Leo Smith, Bill Frisell
Lebroba

The trio of Wadada Leo Smith, Andrew Cyrille and Bill Frisell have laid out this sublime set for the ECM label, and if you like music that grounds itself in jazz, blues, West African music and carefully-felt free playing, you’ll enjoy this first-time combination. Drums, trumpet, guitar, and three great musicians playing together: that’s Lebroba.

Thing
Thing

Before Swedish-Norwegian free-jazz rockers The Thing, there was Bostonian jazz-fusers Thing. About two decades before. But the name is about where the similarities end, for the latter and present Thing, consisting of seven musicians, specialised in rather funkier Davis- or Weather Report-esque free-jazz. This reissue of their only LP comprises two energetic live sets from 1972.

Lol Coxhill / Raymond MacDonald
Morphometry

Lol Coxhill was a free-improvising soprano sax player who had been in the industry since 1970 and has recorded with artists as diverse as Kevin Ayers, The Damned and Shirley Collins. For Morphometry, he teamed up with fellow sax-tooter and friend, Raymond MacDonald. The tracks were recorded 10 years ago, this turned out to be Coxhill’s last visit to Scotland. The front cover is from a woodcut by Ian Barrett, nephew of Pink Floyd’s flawed genius, Syd Barrett. Yellow vinyl LP on Glo-Spot. Includes a CD copy of the album.

Spring Heel Jack and Wadada Leo Smith
Hackney Road

Ashley Wales and John Coxon - the duo of Spring Heel Jack and Treader Records - have long liked a bit of free jazz. Makes sense, then that they’ve got Pulitzer Prize-nominated trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith in to toot his horn alongside them on Hackney Road. The six parts of this LP are a thick, syrupy brew, bringing to mind the paranoid freakouts on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly as well as the more obtuse bits of Dean Blunt’s output.

Jungle By Night
Livingstone

Amsterdam’s Jungle by Night may have more members than the DUP but they’re all clearly united by the singular purpose of grooving every dancefloor in sight with the foot-tappingly, hip-shakingly and above all finger-clickingly funky productions of new album and ex-London mayor shout-out Livingston.

Evan Parker
The Snake Decides

Phenomenal work from free jazz legend Evan Parker, a figure who has consistently wrestled with the heart of form. ‘The Snake Decides’ has this kinetic restlessness that won’t let up. Recorded in St Paul's Church, Oxford, this is a seminal work that’s free but not without thought or process. Reissued by Otoroku and remastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, this edition is limited to 500 copies.

Durand Jones & The Indications
American Love Call

Durand Jones is one of them there soul singers. On his second studio LP American Love Call, Jones and his band The Indications do a fine job at recreating the sounds, sights and smells (not really - it's not scratch 'n' sniff) of the genre’s ‘70s golden age. Curtis Mayfield would be pleased with the lilting grooves and smooth vocals on tunes like 'Don’t You Know’. Aaron Frazer guests on a bunch of cuts.

Nubiyan Twist
Tell It To Me Slowly

Nubiyan Twist making big moves out here and signing to Strut. The Leeds soul-jazz group celebrate the occasion with the release of new single ‘Tell It To Me Slowly’. The tune, which features a turn from sax player Nick Richards on vocals, is an invigorating mix of Afrobeat-indebted rhythms, jerky electronics and massed brass. Think a more fiery rendering of Archie Pelago or Badbadnotgood. Nubiya Brandon guests on B-side ‘Sugar Cane’.

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.

Skinshape
Filoxiny

Over the past few years Skinshape mastermind Will Dorey has established himself as a worthy new addition to the lineage of British oddball artists. His Skinshape project sees Dorey fusing influences from trip-hop, reggae, downtempo electronica, psychedelic pop and chamber pop to cerebrally beautiful effect. He keeps up the good work with his fourth Skinshape LP Filoxiny. Mr. Scruff is an obvious comparison.

Betty Davis
Betty Davis

To some of us, Betty Davis will always be a hero simply because she told Eric Clapton that she wouldn’t collaborate with him because his music was too boring. The fact that she is also one of the most important funk singers of all time only adds to her case. Here we get her eponymous, Sly & The Family Stone-backed 1973 LP reissued by Light In The Attic. Few LPs before or since have ever come close to matching the swagger on display across these tunes.

Alice Coltrane
Universal Consciousness

Universal Consciousness, originally released on Impulse! Records in 1971, is finally back on vinyl. Reissued on CD in 2002, a 12” reissue was highly overdue. Sprawling with free jazz and transcendental improvisation, Alice Coltrane can be heard at her peak. Time to take the aural express back to the '70s again!

Tiger Hatchery
Breathing In The Walls

Imagine cracking an egg only to be confronted by a tiger! Chicago’s Tiger Hatchery are a power jazz trio, which basically means they play jazz but with a bit bit of a noise-rock slant. Rooted in the tradition of free jazz by Mike Forbes’ saxophone, the meaty rock comes from the powerful drumming of Ben Billington. Underpinning it all is bass player Andrew Scott-Young, who is credited as playing ‘basses’. I hope that means ‘more than one bass at a time’ because that would be badass. Breathing In The Walls is their new album, the follow-up to 2013’s Sun Worship. LP and CD on ESP Disk.

Miles Davis
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.

Garrett
Private Life II

A lot of people are guesstimating that Garrett is the secretive alias of boogietronica legend Dam-Funk. While this has been neither confirmed nor denied at the time of writing (17:00, 29th October, Year Of Our Lord 2018) people are, like, 99.9% sure - D-F’s real name is Damon GARRETT Riddick, after all. What’s more, the smooth-ass synth tracks that make up the Private Life II LP bear more than a passing resemblance to the D-F sound. This one’s out via Music From Memory.

Joseph Shabason
Anne

Yeah this is a good one. Anne was composed for Joseph Shabason’s mother in honour of her struggles with degenerative illness. The personal and familial turmoil of this experience crinkles the edges of these milky instrumentals. There is a feeling of tender, quiet sadness to the likes of ‘Forest Run’ that is extremely moving. Musically Shabason's second LP is pitched somewhere between Freetown Sound-era Blood Orange and Loke Rahbek/Frederik Valentin’s Buy Corals Online.

Durand Jones & The Indications
Durand Jones & The Indications Live Vol. 1

I keep wondering if there's any other musician out there called Durand that Durand Jones could collaborate so they can form Durand Durand. While music on that I've had a read of what this is all about and it seems it's more modern day but retro sounding soul stuff that will appeal in particular to fans of Charles Bradley. This is a live LP where the added sweat adds that frisson of excitement to these soul belters.

Ofege
The Last Of The Origins

Nigerian rockers Ofege get another of their classic LPs reissued on Tidal Waves Music. 1976’s The Last Of The Origins built on the success of their debut album Try And Love, fusing psych-rock grooves with Lagos funk fire in a manner reminiscent of their heroes BLO and The Funkees. This one’s been pretty rare up until now - indeed, this is the first time the record has been put on wax since the ‘70s.

Vocal duties are shared by Nubiya Brandon, Nick Richards, K.O.G., Pilo Adami and Mulatu Astatke.

Delicate neoclassical piano is framed by strange arrangements and super tight drumming. At a stretch we could compare them to Portico Quartet, but GoGoPenguin are making something unique.

Free Me

JP Bimeni’s backstory makes the mere existence of Free Me a cause for celebration. A descendant of the royal family of Burundi, Bimeni was forced to flee his homeland after civil war broke out in 1993. He survived three attempts on his life, claimed asylum in the UK, and built a new life in London. His extraordinary life is channelled into the Stax-ish soul of this LP. Backed by his tight group The Black Belts, Bimeni belts out his sorrows in a manner that recalls greats like Otis Redding and William Bell.

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.

Alan Parker & Madeline Bell

The Voice Of Soul is a library-soul LP by session singer Madeline Bell and composer Alan Parker. Originally released in 1976, the record is notable for two reasons - being issued simultaneously with its instrumental album The Sound Of Soul, and for ‘Love Is All’ and ‘You’ve Got What It Takes’ being used in infamous porno-comedy flick Pretty Peaches. Now it’s been given a remaster and reissue job by Be With Records, a label which is really going in hard on the library music at the moment.

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.

Spontaneous Overthrow
All About Money

All About Money is one of those popular music curios that defies easy categorisation. The LP originally emerged from New Jersey in 1984 and is now being re-pressed by Numero Group. Its creators, a group called Spontaneous Overthrow, had never released anything before and never would again. Their sound is a funny mix of cocktail party grooves, home-baked disco and knowing soul singing. It’s an oddly hypnotic mix that will appeal to anyone who cottoned on to that Preacherman reissue that emerged on Luaka Bop a couple of months back.

Lloyd Miller & The Heliocentrics
(OST)

Lloyd Miller teaming up with The Heliocentrics, eh? Wonder what that’s going to sound like. Oh wait … yep, exactly like that. (OST) finds the hip young jazzers breathing new life into Miller’s East-gazing style. The group’s Sun Ra-indebted modalism proves a good foil for the Middle Eastern/Arabian explorations of Miller. Out via Strut.

Calender
It's a Monster

‘70s New Jersey funksters Calender were led by Paul Kyser. They released one album, It’s A Monster, in 1975. They are known for their hit, Hypertension, which foreshadowed the disco sound that exploded soon after. Kyser went on to work with Stevie Wonder, The Three Degrees and The Chi-Lites.

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.

On this double LP Mayfield and his band blend the soul tunes of his old group with fiery conga-funk originals on this double LP.

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

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.

Cloak

Brisbane-via-Britain musician Jordan Rakei looked at a starry sky one night and had an epiphany about oneness and the need to stop living life through the projection of his ego. Silly old Jordan, whatever would he do next? This album, it turned out - a suite of jazzy, neo-soul crooncore inspired by his experience. And now it’s back for a repress!

Sparrow Nights

Lap steel guitar expert Heather Leigh, whose announcement of an upcoming “pop” album for Mego has caused some excitement, is still cranking out the avant-garde ones as well. Here’s another for trusty Viennese ear-troubler Trost with prolific producer of reedy rackets Peter Brötzmann. Leigh is on lap steel, Brötzmann on various clarinets and saxes. Their interactions sound like a highly enthusiastic dialogue in which each participant continually interrupts the other - but always in friendly agreement.

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.

And what a calm and expressive pairing it all is, on a rich, crisp recording with plenty of space. Alongside many originals, there are some interpretations of Bach, Fito Páez and others.

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.

The resulting performances, broadcast at the time on WDET FM, see Mingus and his group bossing the joint night after night.

Her commitment to restraint her makes her a vital foil to the maximalism the Brainfeeder stamp of approval usually means.

Gary Chandler’s 1972 LP Outlook is one of those soul-jazz cuts that demand the big-bucks for original copies. However, if your bucks are of more modest proportions, then consider this here reissue. Chandler was a trumpeter for the Motown Revue in the mid-60’s, and the band on Outlook includes Idris Muhammad and Gordon Edwards, so it's safe to say that this was a group who knew a thing or two about funky grooves. They prove that five times over on this record.
