Recorded in 1976, The Survivors’ Suite is a classic from Keith Jarrett. Although the record only contains two tracks, Beginning and Conclusion, the overall sound is full bodied and complete.

Hiatus Kaiyote
Tawk Tomahawk

Though I like this album, I did not like that many of the songs were very short. This album is also unique in the fact that there seems to not be much of a genre/style category for all the songs on it. Compared to the groups second album, Tawk Tomahawk was a bit all over the place whereas the second had a specific sound/goal in place. Not saying...view item »

St. Paul & The Broken Bones
Half The City

Phil says that I should have sent this Mike’s way but I think its way too Jools for him. It has a Stax/ Memphis horns soulful blues thing going on. Bit of Sharon Jones, bit Winehouse, bit Paul Carrack. Just watched some live footage ...view item »

Stone Foundation
Street Rituals

The new album from Stone Foundation (their fourth) is particularly remarkable for one reason: Paul Weller. The former Jam-man was due to produce Street Rituals, but ended up musically contributing to every single track. So this is an augmented version of Stone Foundation...view item »

Jeff Buckley / Sly & The Family Stone

IF Music presents You Need This - A Journey Into Deep Jazz Vol. 2

The titling is right: this is some well deep jazz music, and you do need this in your life. Expertly compiled BBE release IF Music presents You Need This - A Journey Into Deep Jazz Vol.2 contains nine tracks, but takes six sides of vinyl to do so, due to the stretched-out / blissed-out nature of most of these tunes, such as the side-con...view item »

Innercity Ensemble
III

Blind Owl Wilson
Blind Owl Wilson

A compilation of songs by the late great Alan Christie Wilson, aka Blind Owl, otherwise known as the lead singer of Canned Heat. He wasn't really blind, just very short sighted and possibly autistic.

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

The last album from a band who evolved from synth-pop into intricate, unbelievably delicate avant-jazz compostion. This reissue comes 26 years after the original release but the music hasn't aged a bit. 'Ascension Day' churns and whirrs whilst 'New Grass' tugs the heart strings just as strongly as before.

Prince
Let's Pretend We're Married

When Prince makes the proposition Let's Pretend We’re Married to you, you know you are in for a hell of an evening.

Ixtahuele
Call Of The Islands

Elevator music, dinner jazz, whatever.

Jamie Lidell
Building a Beginning

Really smooth music from Huntingdon's answer to Marvin Gaye. Liddell has been soulful for many years but he sounds like some kind of cross between Gaye and Stevie Wonder slinking his way through a batch of laid back electronic soul. He uses the cream of the world's best session musician to create this soporific,...view item »

Paul and the Tall Trees are Paul Schalda and pals (including perhaps uniquely his dad and his brother). This family set up leads to some pretty warm hearted acoustic pop.

Charles Mingus
Blues & Roots

This is one of the all-time great Mingus albums, recorded around the same time as the better-known Mingus Ah Um.

Ah Um is a great introduction to Mingus's scope as a composer; Blues & Roots is more narrow, ...view item »

Great, foot tapping, slide blues to get you smiling and singing along with. I love "Walki...view item »

Dog House Music

Steve's raw and honest delivery is not the sound you'd expect to find being played at a nice club, but rather a dive bar alongside the swamp or busking on a dirty street.
