Sinkane
Life & Livin’ It

Here’s the third album from Sinkane, the extremely funky outfit led by Ahmed Gallab, who you might also have seen touring William Onyeabor’s music in The Atomic Bomb Band recently. Life & Livin’ It can be seen as part of the same continuum, bringing rich Afro-soul into a shiny pop context. Out on City Slang.

Booker T. & The M.G.s
Green Onions

Well we all know 'Green Onions' the song. The kind of laid back groove that could only have been made by 'cats' in the 'swinging' sixties. The sort of 12 bar blues riff that will live on forever. Well who knew that there was an album attached? Here it is in all it's instrumental glory. Classic early day Stax recordings to be laid back to.

The Necks
Open

Aussie jazz stalwarts The Necks drop their umpteenth LP. On Open we find the trio in peerless form. The album consists of a single 68-minute-long work that hovers at the edges of experimental/free jazz - specifically the points where it meets musique concrete, electronic composition and post-rock. Rocketnumbernine, Oval and The Books are very rough touchstones, but really this is the work of a band in a league of its own.

Tuxedo
Tuxedo II

The second record by Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One) is, remarkably, yet more funky than their first! Tuxedo II seems to be making a pitch for Tuxedo as the heirs of George Clinton and Nile Rodgers, being packed with grin-inducing grooves and big pop hooks. Proper party music, released by Stones Throw.

BADBADNOTGOOD
Late Night Tales

This time it's the turn of the Canadian quartet to pick their favourite tracks and as with all or most Late Night Tales you get an obligatory Boards of Canada track.

Sun Ra
Hello Mr. Schimmel

This one would go under the very special category for record store day releases. A recording of an interview Sun Ra gave in 1990 with Jez Nelson from Jazz FM. Once they had finished the interview Nelson asked if he would like to play something for them, he happily embraced the opportunity, said “Hello Mr Schimmel” and began to improvise. First time this has been released, collectors gem.

Sheer solid soul from The Como Mamas, the tight gospel trio making waves on the Daptone label and its surrounding universe.

They let the atmospheres simmer and grow on this one, without losing their essential Neanderthal bite. LP / CD release on Consouling Sounds.

D'Angelo and The Vanguard
Black Messiah

Returning after an almost fourteen year absence, D’Angelo finally follows up his influential ‘Voodoo’. This is a politicised record of soul, funk and hip-hop hybrids, of daring lyrics combining eroticism and state-of-the-nation pleas and of warm R&B backing from his long-term band. The pieces on this vinyl double LP are so confident and natural it’s difficult to imagine he’s been gone at all.

A real piece of insight here for the Miles Davis lover, or really just jazz lover.

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-consuming epics of Billy Bang Sextet and Sparrow.

Innercity Ensemble
III

With an all-star cast that incorporates Stara Rzeka, Kapital and T’ien Lai, the odds for Innercity Ensemble turning out quality music are high. And they don’t disappoint! III is sort of jazz-derived, but also totally grounded in thick heavy rhythms. Definite jazz-fusion vibes here, but without any of the weaker trappings of that genre. Out on Instant Classic.

SJOB Movement
Friendship Train

SJOB Movement made their second and final album Friendship Train in 1977, with leader (and prominent Nigerian session musician) Prince Bola Agbana at the helm.

Sampha
Process

He's had his finger in an impressive selection of pies for the last 5 or 6 years, and that's why it may come as a surprise that South London-born producer/singer/songwriter Sampha is only just releasing his first full length LP. After an outstanding recent feature on Solange's "A Seat At The Table", Process is his own creation, and it's pretty exciting. "Blood On Me" is the teaser single, a potent electronic blend of soul, pop and hip-hop with shuffling beats, gorgeous harmonies and that distinctive, powerful-yet-delicate voice that Sampha has become so sought-after for. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Young Turks label.

D∆WN

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. And he was also a great guitarist and song writer and his death, at age 27 (two weeks before Hendrix died at the same age) was a great loss to music. This lovely limited edition of 1300 copies comes on shiny vinyl.

Merge
Kashan

Like your jazz-funk odysseys served with a heap of melody and crunchy bass playing? Come on in. Kashan recalls the more lounge-lizard end of Weather Report as its three tracks move nimbly from motif to improv and back again. ‘III’ features a thick, chatty bassline that will have Jaco Pastorius nodding approvingly from beyond the grave. 12” out just in time for Xmas on Growing Bin (Moon B).

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. Especially if you take a look at the sleeve art too… This was one of the singles from the smash album 1999, and comes backed with the original B-side ‘Irresistable Bitch’. 12” single reissued by Warner Bros.

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Geisterfaust

In 2005, noire-doom-jazz ensemble Bohren & Der Club Of Gore decided to get even slower and sparser than they had been previously (which was already pretty slow and sparse). Geisterfaust is a one hour span of beautiful crawl for long dark nights. Reissued on CD and, for the first time, on vinyl. From Play It Again Sam.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
Miss Sharon Jones! (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The release of Miss Sharon Jones!, the new documentary about Jones’ life and work, makes this the perfect time to get some Sharon Jones in your collection if you foolishly haven’t already. She really is a modern soul queen, and her band The Dap-Kings have probably never dropped a beat in their lives. This double LP soundtrack to the film gives an overview of a remarkable career.

Ixtahuele
Call Of The Islands

Elevator music, dinner jazz, whatever. A group of white dudes do ‘island music’ here, and the general air of easy-listening pleasantry here is underpinned by solid musical ability and an interest in otherwise-maligned genres seen in the work of Henry Mancini and more recently Todd Terje. Vinyl and CD.

Betty Harris
The Lost Queen Of New Orleans Soul

Despite working with some of the greatest on the New Orleans scene including Lee Dorsey, The Meters, and Allen Toussaint, Betty Harris never broke through commercially. She retired in 1970 and re-emerged in 2005, here we have a collection of her singles made and released 1964 to 1969. Fiery and soulful funk at it’s very best.

Everything's Beautiful

Bold stuff here: Robert Glasper reworks slices of sound from the mighty back catalogue of Miles Davis into R&B-inclined new pieces. Everything’s Beautiful also includes soulful vocals from heavy-hitters like Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder(!), all paying their respects to Miles while creating something wholly new.

Satisfaction
Three Ages Of Man

Three Ages Of Man by Satisfaction is a lost classic. Fortunately it was found by Acid Jazz label co-owner Derek Griffiths in an unmarked box containing the original reel-to-reel tapes. Their sound has been likened to the blues-rock of Blood, Sweat and Tears and early 70s Chicago, before they started making those mawkish ballads. Satisfaction are melodic and jazzy with a top-notch brass section. Three Ages Of Man is available on vinyl LP and CD.
