Koichi Matsukaze Trio + Toshiyuki Daitoku
Earth Mother

In what seems to be a theme of Japanese Jazz Reissues, we’re proud to offer Earth Mother. If you’re not a collector of Far-Eastern jazz vinyl, you have no idea what we mean. Maybe you know the Koichi Matsukaze Trio & Toshiyuki Daitoku from the infamous J-Jazz 1969-1984 comp...view item »


Kamasi Washington
Heaven and Earth

Oh my God he is walking on water whilst carrying a saxophone. To some Kamasi Washington is the sort of person who could walk on water with his blend of psychedelic cosmic jazz and horn workouts. His first album 'The Epic' was a hell of a thing and 'Heaven & Earth' which is split into two bits ('Heaven'/'Earth') is bound to be ju...view item »


David Axelrod
Songs Of Experience

Wait! Come back! This isn't a reissue of that U2 album, I promise! This is David Axelrod's second album first release in 1969, and the sequel to Songs of Innocence. Like his first album, this is a lushly orchestrated interpretations of the poetry of one William Blake. As the name ...view item »


David Axelrod
Song Of Innocence

Long awaited reissue here from David Axelrod, who made a touching tribute to poet William Blake in Song of Innocence. Deceptive in its welcoming, cozy melodic furniture, it becomes an odd, illusory piece of work, infused with unexpected chords, jazzy timbres and baroque displacements. Axelrod's songs never end...view item »


Adrian Younge
Voices Of Gemma Instrumentals

‘Instrumental’ records often come off like vanity projects that only ever have real appeal for the producer and a very select number of die-hard completists. Not so Adrian Younge’s Voices Of Gemma.

Joey Dosik
Inside Voice

Vulfpeck continue to extend their insidious tendrils into every facet of contemporary music. Joey Dosik may not be a full-time member of the Berkley ‘band’, but his solo output bears a similar element of nudge-nudge-wink-wink to that group's output. Inside Voice, his debut solo LP, thinks it...view item »

Rahsaan Roland Kirk
Anthology: Spirits Above Us

This collection of tracks is as versatile as you could wish for, reflecting Kirk's own ability to switch easily from one instrument to another (sometimes he's even playing two simultaneously!).

Hedvig Mollestad Trio
Evil In Oslo

Hedvig Mollestad Trio are led by Hedvig Mollestad (surprise surprise), who is properly trained in jazz music: here though, she leads her trio into darkly funky territory that is more influenced by heavy psychedelic rock, somewhere her gnarly guitar chops sit very comfortably. Evil In Oslo is a live docu...view item »


Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
Soul Time!

"Soul Time" opens with "Genuine" pt. 1 & 2, a couple of JBs-style funk numbers, and it's the funkier stuff that carry most of the weight here:"Genuine", "He said I can", "Taxes" and "When I come home" are all smoking good tunes. Sharon Jones goes into a dance craze when she does "When I come home" live, doing the boogaloo, the funky chicken ...view item »
