Aquiles Navarro & Tcheser Holmes
Heritage of the Invisible II

Trumpeter Aquiles Navarro and  percussionist Tcheser Holmes have been friends and musical collaborators for many years, most recently collaborating as members of Irreversible Entanglements. Because of their friendship, they just seem to know how each other work and how to respond to each other musically. It is this telepathy that drives the latin and afro-carribean sounds that make Heritage of the Invisible II.

Amy Winehouse
Frank (Half-Speed Master)

Frank was the debut album by Amy Winehouse. She made a massive impact with this upon its release in 2003. Firstly as a major new talent had just unleashed itself on the world and secondly because her lyrics didn’t pull any punches, hence the title. The title is also a nod to one of her heroes, Frank Sinatra. This edition has been half-speed mastered by the artisans at Abbey Road Studios for highest quality audio.

Beyoncé
Lemonade

Steering away from the sheeny chart-leading bangers that made Queen Bey a hegemonic pop power, Lemonade is yet another pioneering reinvention from someone exploring new territory. Risk-taking has become alien from many modern powerhouse artists; but so long as the likes of Beyonce keep us on our toes, the world will be a better place.

Nina Simone herself said that she’d prefer people to remember her for Nina Simone and Piano! It is Nina Simone stripped to the bone and singing about life, death and everything in between.

JR Bailey
Just Me 'n You

More unearthed '70s soul shoulda been classics from the Be With imprint with J R Bailey's lush masterpiece Just Me 'n' You. The album is reminiscent of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On  - a concept album - but rather than Gaye's political lyrical obsessions, Bailey explores the subject of romance. The album has a home-fi feel, recorded on basic tape machine which gives it an otherworldly feel. Then there's Bailey's voice, as sweetly longing as anything Gaye put his name to.

Paradise Cinema
Paradise Cinema

Recorded in the Senegalese capital of Dakar with percussionists Khadim Mbaye and Tons Sambe, 'Paradise Cinema' is the eponymous debut album from the new project by former Portico Quartet and Szun Waves musician Jack Wyllie. An impressionistic sonic patchwork inspired by the sounds of the city’s night-time life, it’s an engrossing listen that hovers on the edge of drone, fourth-world and contemporary classical styles.

They have gained increased exposure over the years through appearances on compilations so this luxury re-issue of this Afrobeat classic is rather timely.

Gotts Street Park
Volume Two

'Volume Two' is more great music from fast-rising Leeds collective Gotts Street Park. The trio - consisting of Josh Crocker (bass), Tom Henry (keys) and Joe Harris (guitar) plus a rotating cast of drummers and vocalists - spark off the unrivalled feeling of creating music in the same room, even retaining the spirit of spontaneity under lockdown. What they come up with is a sort of nicey-nicey, chilled-out, vaguely psychedelic brand of neo-soul - think Khruangbin and Tom Misch.

Kelly Finnigan
The Tales People Tell (Instrumentals)

Kelly Finnigan hit paydirt with his debut album the Tales People Tell in 2019 at the grand old age (relatively) of 37. It was worth the wait however as he perfectly tapped into a deeply soulful sound with nods to Al Green and Marvin Gaye. If you want to hear his extraordinary voice you are looking in the wrong place as this is a one time pressing of the instrumentals so you can try to replicate that falsetto yourself (I tried with macabre results).

The six tracks here, all led by Frazier’s hot-fingered Hammond playing, are funkier than a mosquito’s tweeter.

'We Come From The Sun' (doo-doo doo-doo!) is an album composed by Cerys Matthews and performed by Hidden Orchestra & 10 Poets. The LP is her response to the situation that the events of 2020 have left us in.

Aloe Blacc
All Love Everything

All Love Everything is the 4th studio album proper by soul singer and producer Aloe Blacc. It's been seven years since his last effort - 2013’s Lift our Spirit. In that time he’s become a father and it’s this experience that has informed his new album. It’s a soul album but incorporates folk and pop showing that Aloe Blacc won’t be pinned down.

Ronald Langestraat
Searching

Reissue of Ronald Langestraat's 1984 effort 'Searching' here, an album which was recorded at home using an array of instruments including piano, organs, sax and pretty much anything Langestraat could get his hands on. The result is music which appears to be an amalgamation of all his musical influences particularly jazz-rock and yacht-rock. 'Searching' is super smooth - those who dig the output of labels like 12th Isle and Safe Trip will get plenty of joy out of this.

Caiphus Semenya
Listen To The Wind

Be With are really finding some lost gems of late. The latest is this 1982 album by Caiphus Semenya - a South African in self imposed exile in Southern California. He was already well known as a collaborator with the likes of Lou Rawls and Quincy Jones when he finally got round to making a solo LP. The album blends funk, soul, jazz and boogie with his South African roots for a modern soul album which blended '80s production with more traditional sounds and compositions.
