Otis Houston Jr.
America

Otis Houston Jr is a kind of Wesley Willis/Moondog like character that hangs around a particular spot in New York where he performs impromptu performances of music and poetry and displays his art usually made from things he has collected from the street. His life has been full of incident and here he regales all kinds of stories of incarceration and getting shot over a kind of DIY R&B production. An utterly fantastic document of outsider art.

Irreversible Entanglements
Irreversible Entanglements

With their new mini-odyssey ‘Bread Out of Stone’ recently landing, it’s an appropriate time for this vinyl re-issue of Irreversible Entanglements’ self-titled debut album. Originally released in 2017 and winning plaudits from The Quietus to Gilles Peterson, it essayed the experiences of Black suffering, survival and power over four wonderful free-jazz explorations.

Kassa Overall
I Think I'm Good

I Think I’m Good is the second album by rising star Kassa Overall. Through a seamless fusion of jazz and hip-hop, the Brooklyn-based musician tackles America’s prisons, personal relationships and mental health. Features guest spots from Brandee Younger and Theo Croker, newbies Joel Ross and Morgan Guerin and activist Dr. Angela Davis. On Brownswood Recordings.

Tommy Guerrero
A Little Bit Of Somethin'

What a beautiful little release. The album art pretty much sums up the sound on the LP, so as you can imagine, the tracks are mellow and guitar-y. A Little Bit Of Somethin' by Tommy Guerrero has been reissued on vinyl LP on Be With Records and would be a nice addition to the chilled out part of your record collection.

Alabaster dePlume
To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol.1

To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol.1 by Alabaster De Plume was made when the saxophonist, composer and activist was working with the Manchester-based charity, Ordinary Lifestyles. De Plume was assigned with helping two of the charity’s clients Cy and Lee to socialise. He did this through helping them create music which, in turn, enabled them to express themselves in a way they hadn’t done before. The tracks within were developed from impromptu sessions involving Cy, Lee and their friends.

Victor Cavini
Japan

German musician Gerhard Trede can play 50 instruments. He is also known as Victor Cavini, maker of the supreme library music album, Japan. The album has been very hard to track down, but the good folks at Be With have found it and reissued it. It is a sampler’s treasure trove featuring traditional Japanese music as played by a western musician in 1983.

John Coltrane
1963: New Directions

John Coltrane burned brilliantly brightly, if briefly; here are five of his best LPs. '1963: New Directions' brings together all of Coltrane's 1963 Impulse recordings, in the order in which they were laid down to tape. The year marked a transition point for Coltrane, he would go on to record 1964's 'Crescent' and 'A Love Supreme', of course. Available as a 5x LP box set and a 3x CD set and include artwork featuring original collages. On Impulse!

Robert Glasper
Fuck Yo Feelings

Fuck Yo Feelings is the latest studio project from the prestigious Robert Glasper, multiple Grammy-winning pianist and record producer. The result of a two day-session in which Glasper’s musician friends contributed in spontaneous improvisation, it has a refreshingly unplanned ‘mixtape’ feel.

Luca T. Mai
Heavenly Guide

Best known for his participation in the legendary Italian avant-garde rock outfit ZU, the hugely talented baritone saxophonist Luca T. Mai makes his first-ever solo recording, titled Heavenly Guide. It’s a wonderfully immersive and deeply emotional listening experience, ranging from energetic blasts of noise to serene soundscapes.

Collocutor
Continuation

Collocutor have reduced their members from seven to five for the making of Continuation, and as the title suggests, it’s business as usual for band leader Tamar Osborn and Co. It is their third album, and finds Osborn dealing with grief and trying to keep things on an even keel. The modal jazz crew’s previous album, The Search, won praise from Giles Petersen and music mag The Wire.

Kearney Barton: Architect of the Northwest Sound

You may not know Kearney Barton by name but if I mention the likes of Quincy Jones, The Ventures, The Wailers, The Sonics and the Young Fresh Fellows then you might sit up and take notice. You see all of those have been recorded with this 80 year old veteran who had been recording bands for 50 years right up to his passing in 2012. This labour of love is a collection of some of the masses of tapes in his collection from local obscurities to more well known artists. Lovingly compiled by Lights in the Attic. 

Rusconi + Fred Frith
Live in Europe

Rusconi are a young and adventurous jazz band; who could be a better collaborative partner than old and adventurous jazz man Fred Frith? The former Henry Cow man slots his jagged guitar right into the Rusconi sound. Live In Europe presents extracts from 2 live shows on 180g vinyl. Released on Qilin Records.

Celeste
Celeste

Celeste follows a string of EPs and singles with her eponymous debut album. The jazz / soul / R&B singer hails from Brighton. She got her break when a music manager spotted a song she’d uploaded to YouTube. Since then she has won over Lily Allen, releasing a single on her Bank Holiday label and her, now, label-mate Michael Kiwanuka.

Amirtha Kidambi Elder Ones
Holy Science

Getting a physical release for the first time since its digital-only initial release four years ago, Holy Science is the debut full-length from Amirtha Kidambi and her NYC-based four-piece backing band The Elder Ones. It’s a deeply moving mix of the ancient and spiritual clashing with the modern, alternative and transgressive, informed by Kidambi’s traditional South Indian upbringing and her love for jazz, hip-hop and punk.

Buntús Rince (Explorations In Irish Jazz, Fusion & Folk 1969-81)

Probably the number one nation for jazz outside of the United States is Japan. But how often does Ireland get a look in? Buntús Rince, a compilation of Irish jazz on AllChival, seeks to fill in that particular blank. Because of the context that the jazz scene emerged in Ireland, and its various difficulties, the music produced is distinctly Irish feeling.

Jordan Rakei
Cloak

Brisbane-via-Britain musician Jordan Rakei looked at a starry sky one night and had an epiphany about oneness and the need to stop living life through the projection of his ego. Silly old Jordan, whatever would he do next? This album, it turned out - a suite of jazzy, neo-soul crooncore inspired by his experience. And now it’s back for a repress! Remi, Richard Spaven and Ngaiire guest.

Nathaniel Rateliff
And It's Still Alright

And It’s Still Alright marks the first solo work of Denver-based singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff outside of the context of his band The Night Sweats since they exploded onto the scene back in the middle of the ‘10s. Produced with the help of Beach House’s James Barone, it’s one of the more personal and soulful collections in Rateliff’s discography. 

Sam Cooke
Hit Kit

If you are looking for a round up of the early hits of King of Soul Sam Cooke then you've come to the right place. Hit Kit collects all his 1959 and earlier hits including Only Sixteen and You Send Me. Seen at the time perhaps as something of a cash grab off the back of his early success, there's no arguing the quality here from a man who achieved great commercial success in a short space of time.  

Sam Cooke
The Wonderful World Of Sam Cooke

If you are a thinking of a place to start on the music of soul legend Sam Cooke then The Wonderful World Of is as good a place as any. His fourth album originally released in 1960 features hits such as Wonderful World and Summertime showcasing the effortless smooth vocals that led him to be crowned the King of Soul.  

Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet
Live

You may have clocked Jazzman’s recent Don Rendall/Ian Carr Quintet box set. The five-LP wonder did so well on its first run that now the label has decided to put out all of the band’s full-lengths as individual units. 1969’s Live is the only record the group cut for Lansdowne that captured them in full flow. Known largely for being one of the best British post-bop acts, cuts like ‘Voices’ also demonstrate the band’s affinity for spiritual and modal jazz. With original copies of Live going for silly money nowadays it’s a good job that the record’s been reissued. Remastered, too.

D'monK / Thru Colours
Lost Roots

This 12” vinyl EP, Lost Roots, is the first official release from new London-based label Trees & Trax, featuring D’monK with two tracks on the ‘Trees’ side of the vinyl and Thru Colours, a.k.a. producer Toby Harrison, on the reverse Trax side with another brace of tracks. Together, the release ties together jazz, breakbeats and house. Kinda reminds of some old Mo' Wax and Ninja Tune gear with a fresh approach that recalls The Rhythm Section label and bits of Theo Parrish, Amp Fiddler etc.

Gil Scott-Heron
We're New Again – A Re-imagining by Makaya McCraven

'We’re New Again' is a reworking of Gil Scott-Heron’s final album, 2010's 'I’m New Here', by jazz musician Makaya McCraven. Makaya’s principal instrument is the drums but he can turn his hand to production too, and as such getting stuck into Scott-Heron's soul-jazz poetics was right up his street. 'I’m New Here' was previously given a full remix treatment by Jamie xx back in 2011, but 'We're New Again' is a wholly different beast. This jazz take is most intriguing.

Khruangbin & Leon Bridges
Texas Sun

Texas Sun is the intriguing collaboration between soul / R&B singer Leon Bridges and wayward psychedelic types Khruangbin. Both artists hail from Texas but represent different ends of the state’s musical heritage, here, they bring them together on an EP that has every chance of being an absolute cracker.

Prophet
Don't Forget It

Prophet AKA Anthony Butler started out in the 80s with the album 'Right On Time', now a collectors item for people who like their vinyl funky. Anyone who manages to maitain a heigtened state of funkiness for over three decades is surely worth your while.  RIYL Thundercat, Dam-Funk,Mndsgn, Stimulator Jones.

The Sorcerers
In Search of the Lost City of the Monkey God

Leeds-based band The Sorcerers follow up their lauded debut album with an even more ambitious record. Released on ATA Records, globally-sourced jazz influences combine with dusty, European-based library music to make something truly widescreen on the fantastically-named In Search of the Lost City of the Monkey God.

Esterno Notte Jazz

The first in the Esterno Notte Jazz series, out on Four Flies, this record is dedicated to the rich jazz featured in Italian films from the '60s, stopping by noir,melò, giallo, dark comedy and crazy 'musicarelli' along the way. A result of research that plundered the soundtrack archive of RCA Italy, this is a killer selection that features Piero Umiliani, Romano Mussolini, Amedeo Tommasi, Robby Poitevin, Piero Piccioni or Armando Trovajoli.

Graham Dee
Carnaby Street Soul West Coast Vibes

Graham Dee is a ‘60s legend and Acid Jazz are paying tribute to him with Carnaby Street Soul West Coast Vibes - a compilation of his best moments. He was an A&R guy-cum-musician with Atlantic Records, playing with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones and occasionally standing in for Syd Barrett at Pink Floyd gigs. He left Atlantic after damaging some studio gear with a pistol and firing a hunting bow which caused a flood in the office - Keith Moon level stuff. He has also worked with Elkie Brooks, Mike Berry and Georgie Fame. The septuagenarian Dee is still making new music, but why not get to know him a little first.

Jeff Parker
Suite for Max Brown

He is joined on the album by pianist and saxophonist Josh Johnson, bass player Paul Bryan, Makaya McCraven, Rob Mazurek, trumpeter Nate Walcott, Jamire Williams and Jay Bellerose on drums and cellist Katinka Klejin.

Peter Brötzmann / Heather Leigh
Sparrow Nights

Lap steel guitar expert Heather Leigh, whose announcement of an upcoming “pop” album for Mego has caused some excitement, is still cranking out the avant-garde ones as well. Here’s another for trusty Viennese ear-troubler Trost with prolific producer of reedy rackets Peter Brötzmann. Leigh is on lap steel, Brötzmann on various clarinets and saxes. Their interactions sound like a highly enthusiastic dialogue in which each participant continually interrupts the other - but always in friendly agreement.

Love Drums From The Ghetto

Love Drums From The Ghetto by Malaku Daku is an afro-funk rarity. Malaku Daku, a percussionist from Philadelphia, uses the drums for deeper meaning. In the west, drums are just about music. In African society they mean much more - from the ritualistic to the spiritual to communication and passion. You can feel everything going on in these grooves.

Moon B
Udaya

Composed on an iPad of all things, Moon B's new album Udaya promises to be a weird and wonderful trip through the worlds of lo-fi and downtempo electronic music. If lead single 'Udaya' is anything to go off, it promises to be full of acidic basslines, washy synth pads, and digital beats. Features a sample of professional charlatan J*rd*n P*t*rs*n for some reason.

Jamael Dean
Black Space Tapes

Jamael Dean is only 20 yet he’s already played on Kamasi Washington’s Heaven and Earth and toured in Thundercat’s band. He is also the grandson of jazz drummer, Donald Dean. That would, one assumes, make him a pretty handy musician. Well, now you can hear his sounds up front on his debut album, Black Space Tapes. He has soaked up influences from the likes of Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane and Herbie Hancock.

Kamasi Washington
Harmony of Difference

The first new music from cosmic jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington since his much lauded 'The Epic'. This follow up also seems to be epic despite it's short length being a six part suite exploring the musical technique known as 'counterpoint'. There are 5 unique components which when blended create a sixth track. Clever lad.

Damn.

This new compilation, No Other Love: Midwest Gospel (1965-1978), remastered by Grammy winning producer Christopher King, brings new life to these songs that soundtrack Civil Rights-era hope.
