Abstract Orchestra
Dilla

Northern jazz ensemble Abstract Orchestra flip the script of the late J Dilla here. On Dilla they expand some of the Detroit producer’s classic beats into neo-big-band fantasies. ‘Workinonit’, ‘Love Jones’, ‘So Far To Go’ and a dozen cuts more blossom into ...view item »

Bury Me in a Corner of the Yard

Death Is Not The End are a fine label who should get more recognition than they do. The rare-as-hen’s-teeth records they get hold of for reissue are always hauntingly beautiful, and their recent LPs from Nina De La Puebla and Violeta Parra are simply not the sort of thing you hear every da...view item »

James Brandon Lewis - Chad Taylor
Radiant Imprints

A nice little story behind this one. Both James Brandon Lewis and Chad Taylor have been brewing a budding friendship since they first met and decided that an album of great music should be written by the pair.

Dance For Your Life – Rare Finnish Funk & Disco 1976-1986

Lordi. HIM. Apocalyptica. When one thinks of Finnish music, the words ‘funk’ and ‘disco’ are not ones that immediately spring to mind. The people at Svart Records - despite being a label that largely releases prog and metal - are out to change those perce...view item »

Untinted: Sources For Madlib's Shades Of Blue

Everyone dug Madlib’s classic rummage through the legendary Blue Note jazz archives from 2003, the smoky-cool Shades Of Blue, in which our hero made sweet funky hip-hop groove instrumentals out of the jazz samples.

Georges-Edouard Nouel
Chodo

Some gorgeous deep cuts of spiritual jazz here from pianist Georges-Edouard Nouel, with a record cut in 1975. Needless to say, original copies of Chodo are highly scarce and expensive, but you don’t need to worry about that now as Rebirth On Wax have just reissued this smooth, rich masterpiece on vinyl!...view item »

Dusty Springfield
Dusty In Memphis

A few years ago (I say ‘a few’ I probably mean 20) I read an opinion, I think in the NME, that the 10-second intro to Son Of A Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield is the greatest 10 seconds of music ever recorded. It’s hard to argue with as it is very good indeed. Dusty Springfield released Dusty...view item »

Alice Coltrane
World Galaxy

Impulse! and Back To Black reissue this sweeping 1972 album by Alice Coltrane. World Galaxy pairs Alice’s harp-led ensemble with a large string orchestra, meaning that her already cosmically free-flowing compositions spiral even further out. A deeply lush listen. Including versions of two ...view item »

Ben LaMar Gay
Downtown Castles Can Never Block The Sun

Chicago trumpeter, vocalist and composer Ben LaMar Gay doing some serious quality control here: the tunes making up Downtown Castles Can Never Block the Sun were chosen from seven unreleased albums. It’s quite a mix and it’s all of a very high quality, neither of which surprising. There’s gorgeous, melted piano...view item »

The Nineteenth Whole
Smilin'

While this 1972 LP from short-lived Indianapolis group The Nineteenth Whole may not exactly be a household name, some big-hitters were involved in its creation. Rudy Van Gelder was at the controls for this one, and Cornell Dupree - the guitarist who laid down the opening lick for Aretha ...view item »

Donald Austin
Crazy Legs

Crazy Legs is the only LP laid down by Memphis guitarist Donald Austin. Originally released in 1973, the record has become a highly sought-after work of golden-age funk. It’s no surprise - the likes of the title track and ‘Hot Rooster’ are outrageously groovy takes from a time where Motown, soul, funk ...view item »

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...view item »

Peter Brötzmann / Juhani Aaltonen / Peter Kowald / Edward Vesala
Hot Lotta

Reissue of Hot Lotta, a one off meeting between some of the greatest minds in German and Finish free jazz. Recorded in 1973, this is a truly savage example of what my jazz hating colleagues would call 'difficult sax music'. You can get a good idea of what this sounds like by ...view item »

Dr.John
Gris Gris

Totally recommend this album by Dr John, its a real trip of funky voodoo psychedelic rock. Though recorded in California it is a real New Orleans sounding recording. Favourites are Mama Roux and I walk On Gilded Splinters, but every track is worthy. Its not the lengthiest album, but it packs in a lot of quality and ...view item »

Sun Ra
Astro Black

A Sun Ra album that manages to have more of the mystique about it than usual. It was allegedly recorded at El Saturn Studio in Chicago, a studio that has no record of ever having existed. Well, Astro Black definitely exists and in typical 'Ra' fashion will take you all the way to space. Pressed on purple vin...view item »

Skymark
Virtual Stars

A record of leftfield boogie music from Skymark here, out via his own Modern Sun Records. Virtual Stars combines neo-soul, jazz-funk, Theo Parrish-style deep house and electro. There’s also a little early MF Doom (beats, not rhymes) to the choice of lead instrumen...view item »

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
100 Days 100 Nights

100 Days, 100 Nights is a complete throwback to late 60s and early 70s R&B with no reservations. You can definitely hear the Winehouse/Ronson connection (Ronson produced Amy's "Back to Black"). The baritone sax is the signature instrument here and I love it. Sharon Jones sings with such conviction, which luckily is not lost through overprodu...view item »

Childish Gambino
Awaken, My Love!

Vinyl release of Childish Gambino’s third album, which was released at the end of 2016. Polymath that he is, Donald Glover ditches his project’s characteristic rapping to croon his way through an ambitious funk effort that resembles 70s R&B more than his own previous work. Standard vinyl LP on Glassnote....view item »

Brötzmann / Miller / Moholo
Opened, But Hardly Touched

Here's an album recorded in 1980 and originally released in '81 from the groundbreaking free jazz mavericks Peter Brotzmann, Harry Miller and Louis Moholo. It's a raucous and squeaky affair of course, but as the press release is quick to point out, it displays the trio's "most accessible approach". Which is to say that it's European free jazz ...view item »

Lord Tusk
Communique EP

Lord Tusk is an eclectic purveyor of murky, smoky productions not unlike those of his associates - Dean Blunt, John T. Gast et al. Communique EP is quite a relaxed haze of snail-paced electro, with evocative references to boogie and funk, lumbering among chopped & screwed drum textu...view item »

Osunlade
Peacock

Osunlade is back this week with a new LP on Yoruba. It plays at 45rpm but doesn't say that anywhere on the artwork, and the first track is instrumental, so don't make the same mistake I made and try to listen to it at 33. It sounds great at that speed, even when the vocals come in, but it's not right. It's a tough LP to pin down. Despite...view item »

Thundercat
The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam

Vicktor Taiwò attempts to combine twin loves of pop music and experimental on a record of inner belief and self-actualisation. His debut, Joy Comes in Spirit, gambles on its bedrock of singer-songwriter soul with amorphous deviations. Tunes stretch and expand, taking on retro game music, rap and 808...view item »

The Beginning Of The End
Funky Nassau

Though the career of 70s band Beginning Of The End ended up being relatively short (they disbanded after their second album), things seemed rosy on the release of their 1971 debut LP Funky Nassau. The eponymous track was a huge hit, selling over a million copies and topping the Billboard R ‘n’ B chart. That ...view item »

Beginning Of The End
Beginning Of The End

Strut reissue the second album from Bahamian group Beginning Of The End here.

Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp
Sauvage Formes

This 8-track album is a beautiful, adventurous journey into experimental orchestration, minimalistic guitars riffs and luxurious, epic strings underpinning epic, swelling chants and hymnal refrains.
