The Piccolo - Tender Plays Tubby EP features performances from a number of today’s finest jazz musicians. 

Bobbi Humphrey
Blacks and Blues

A classic jazz-funk wedge gets reissued by Blue Note. Bobbi Humphrey is the name on the front of 1973's Blacks And Blues, and her sprightly flute playing and confident leadership gives these soulful, strutting fusion pieces the chutzpah they need to shine. However, the success of Blacks And Blues owes much to both Humphrey’s band and producers The Mizell Brothers - one half of whom (Larry Mizell) composed these numbers.

Lianne La Havas
Lianne La Havas

After an absence of five years, Lianne La Havas soared back into our collective consciousness at the start of 2020 with a great comeback single and memorable live show at the Barbican. Events have obviously prevented her from more performances, but her third, self-titled studio album is due to arrive before the year is out, made entirely on her own terms and exploring soul, R&B and jazz territories. 

Laurence Pike
Prophecy

Inspired by the appalling fires that recently ravaged his homeland of Australia, Prophecy is the third album in as many years from percussionist and composer Laurence Pike. Again utilising his one-take approach for maximum spontaneity, it’s a record that eerily reflects the world’s current predicaments.

Kaleidoscope - New Spirits Known and Unknown

A good as any a place to begin your discovery.

Hot off the back of the Radio 6-playlisted success that was ‘Felony’ comes the fourth studio album from The Allergies. Just like their previous efforts, Say The Word is a kinetic mixture of chunky hip-hop beats, fluid funk and consistent grooves that arrives in time to brighten a blighted summer. 

Gil Scott-Heron
I'm New Here (10th Anniversary Expanded Edition)

Gil Scott-Heron released I’m New Here in 2010. It sadly turned out to be the legendary musician and poet’s final album. The album at least matches his previous work in terms of boundary-pushing and musical quality, so it's well deserving of a 10th anniversary reissue. This version comes with a previously unreleased cut from the original sessions and a cover of Handsome Johnny, originally by Richie Havens, which turned out to be the last song Scott-Heron ever recorded. There’s a bunch of other rare tracks dating from the original album sessions too. 

Poppy Ajudha / Skinny Pelembe
Watermelon Man / Illusion

Here we have a 7” featuring two tracks from the forthcoming Blue Note: Reimagined album on which modern artists take on jazz classics.

Miles In Tokyo: Miles Davis Live In Concert

Miles Davis
Filles de Kilimanjaro

Filles De Kilimanjaro by Miles Davis was originally released in 1968. It sits between Miles In The Sky and In A Silent way, making it the transitional album between his acoustic and electric periods. Accompanying Davis on the album was the stellar line up of Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. A Classic.

Herbie Hancock
Mwandishi

Mwandishi by Herbie Hancock was originally released in 1970. It saw the keyboard ace depart from his jazz roots for the first time, however, there was plenty of improvisation going here. The departure from jazz was most obvious in the use of electronic devices and the choice of a forward thinking group of musicians to back him.

Mourning [A] BLKstar
The Cycle

Cleveland Ohio's Mourning [A] BLKstar describe themselves as a "multi-generational, gender and genre non-conforming amalgam of Black Culture". So far they've been somewhat under the radar but the Cycle sounds like the sort of thing that could bring them wider attention. It is a twenty song double LP of neo-soul, hip-hop and expansive jazz that probably couldn't be more timely. 

Ruby Rushton
Sun Khosi

Another new 7” single from jazz outfit Ruby Rushton, the quartet led by Tenderlonius (a.k.a. flautist and 22a label boss Ed Cawthorne). ‘Sun Khosi’, written in tribute to Tenderlonius’ father, is backed by ‘Chrysalis’, and both new tracks are taken from the band’s upcoming studio album, set to arrive in November.

If you already own Martin Dumas Jr’s Attitude, Belief and Determination / Nonstop To The Top on wax, then you could be rich, as original copies are deeply rare.

Don Bryant
You Make Me Feel

Now deep into his 70s Don Bryant is best known as a songwriter in particular for the Hi Records imprint.

Skinshape
Umoja

Will Dorey’s fifth Skinshape album dives completely into the pool of African musical inspiration that he’d been only drawing upon until now.

Along with bassist Joe Harrison, the two bring their very different life experiences to bear on Float Back To You. 

Skinshape
Life & Love

Skinshape is the project of one William Dorey. On Life & Love, his third album, the Brit makes gloriously lo-fi sounding funk and soul. Somehow finds the mid points between the likes of Jungle and Khruangbin, in that Dorey manages to be both silky smooth and somewhat experimental and playful. Good at reverb too. 

Menahan Street Band
There's A New Day Coming / Tommy Don't

The A-side of the Menahan Street Band’s new 7” single ‘There’s A New Day Coming’ was originally conceived as a backing track for the late singer Charles Bradley, but was shelved after his death a couple of years ago. Now revived, and split into two parts with the latter now called ‘Tommy Don’t’, it’s a piece of music worthy of The Screaming Eagle of Soul himself.

If I Had a Pair of Wings: Jamaican Doo Wop, Vol. 1

Essential collection of Jamaican doo wop and R&B dating from the 50s to the early 60s. What’s really exciting here is the early of traces ska emerging from what may initially appear to be a replication of American sounds. Many of the artists here would become essential in the development of ska and reggae, such as Alton Ellis and Jimmy Cliff. It documents a moment of transition, a key part of Jamaican musical history. The cassette is put out by Death is Not The End.

The musicians included Harold Vick on tenor sax and Billy Higgins on Drums.
