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

Colin Stetson
Those Who Didn't Run

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.

Arve Henriksen
Chiaroscuro

Charles Bradley
Victim Of Love

There is real joy in the passage of Charles Bradley from the struggling street existence to recording star. Victim of Love sits formally in the 10 year old tradition of this stable and is full of that classic authentic soul which regularly re-emerges when other music forms plummet and bore. From start to finish this album is quite a bit differen...view item »

Starship Commander Wooooo Wooooo
Mastership

Inexplicably, back in the 1980s, a steel mill worker from Missouri called Omer Coleman Junior begun driving around town in a souped-up space age car and introducing himself to people as Starship Commander Wooooo Wooooo (proving, if proof was ever needed that two 'o's is never enough).

Tubby Hayes Quartet
The Syndicate: Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1

Repress and first ever CD release of this 1986 Tubby Hayes Quartet performance. Disappointingly Tubby is not a tuba or a tuba player, but a sax player.

Moses Taiwa Molelekwa
Genes and Spirits

An artist ahead of his time, the tragic passing of Moses Taiwa Molelekwa in 2001 meant that the South Africa pianist never got to see the exciting developments in jazz over the next few years.

Sun Ra and Solar Arkestra
On Jupiter

This is a mini album, and it immediately followed Languidity. Made for Sun Ra's Philadelphia jazz imprint, Saturn (incidentally, the planet that was Sun Ra's home, true believers), this album was Sun Ra's brilliant stab at funk. If Languidity was Sun Ra's dance album, this is most certainly his funk album. The definite highlight is "UFO", which ...view item »
