Bells Of Kyoto
Bells Of Kyoto

The Mitsuko & Svetlana label exhumes an incredible jazz-funk fusion record from the Eighties. Originally released 35 years ago, and coming out again on vinyl for the first time since then, the German/Australian/British ensemble Bells of Kyoto gave an example of technically skilled but unfussily executed cool on their self-titled effort.

Art Ensemble Of Chicago
We Are On The Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration

Five full decades of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago: hell yes. This commemorative anniversary album was recorded with the two surviving core members joined by potent musicians including Nicole Mitchell, Tomeka Reid and Moor Mother. We Are On The Edge takes in a wide array of the Ensemble’s history, with both a studio and a live disc for the full range of possible vibes. On Erased Tapes.

Lonnie Smith
Live At Club Mozambique

Originally released in 1995 on the legendary Blue Note label, Live At Club Mozambique captures jazz organist Lonnie Smith at the peak of powers during a performance in May 1970 at the Detroit club of the same name. Featuring a certain George Benson on guitar, the eight-track performance culminates in two covers (of Sly Stone and Miles Davis) and can now be heard again on this double-vinyl re-issue. 

Jimmy Smith
Groovin’ At Smalls’ Paradise Vol.1

Groovin’ At Smalls’ Paradise Vol. 1 is a live album by Jimmy Smith recorded in 1957. Smith is a mean Hammond organ player, and as the title suggests, he really can make that thing groove. Smith is backed by his regular band mates Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums. The trio give a rich and warm take on jazz standards such as My Funny Valentine and It’s Only A Paper Moon.

Lee Konitz
Alone Together

I guess there are classic modern jazz albums and there’s Alone Together by Alto Sax player Lee Konitz. His 1996 debut album was recently placed at number 38 in a pole of the best Blue Note albums of all time. It has won praise for its refreshing takes on jazz standards. Given the label’s back catalogue, that’s quite a feat. Konitz is accompanied by Brad Mehldau on piano and Charlie Haden on bass.

Miles Davis
Rubberband

Rubberband was supposed to be the first album Miles Davis recorded for new label, Warner Bros in 1985 following his departure from Columbia. The tapes were left to gather dust and Tutu was released. Following completion work in 2017 and an EP taster version released for record store day, the full album is now being released. It features vocals from 12-time Grammy nominee Lidisi and Donnie Hatahway’s daughter, Lalah and drums by legendary percussionist, Steve Reid.

John Coltrane

Keith Jarrett
Munich 2016

The great American jazz pianist Keith Jarrett was recorded live in Munich on the last night of his European tour three years ago, and the resultant live album Munich 2016 captures the renowned improviser at the peak of his powers, even at the age of 71. Twelve untitled pieces whir past over two slabs of vinyl, before a triptych of beautifully rendered encores, including ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, finish it off. 

David Porter
Victim Of The Joke?...An Opera

It has to be said that cover art is pretty important to how a record is received. Imagine if Marvin Gaye's What's Going On looked like that? David Porter's 1971 solo album should not be underestimated though. He had already had a great career at Stax co-writing hits like Soul Man with Isaac Hayes. Here he infuses his pop soul moves into a concept album in which he adds in dialogue to tell the story of a love affair. It's been sampled all over the place with Wu-Tang Clan and Madlib amongst others finding loops within its grooves.

The Comet Is Coming
The Afterlife

The Afterlife is the new EP by jazz / funk / electronic band The Comet Is Coming. It follows on from their second LP Trust in The Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery. According to Keyboardist, Danalogue, the EP should be regarded as a companion piece to the album as the music comes from the same session, the same creative process.

The Miles Davis Quintet
The Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions

The Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions by The Miles Davis Quintet was released on CD in 2006. It  has never been released on LP before, but this 6 x 180g LP box set has made sure that now it is available, it’s done properly. It features tracks that would make up the albums Miles, Cookin’, Relaxin’, Workin’, Steamin’ and Miles Davis And The Modern Jazz Giants along with some live TV and radio recordings. Miles’ band here was John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. All tied together with extensive liner notes by jazz historian, Bob Blumenthal.

Pete La Roca
Basra

Basra was one of only two albums drummer Pete La Roca recorded as a bandleader with Blue Note. It was recorded in 1965. Joe Henderson played tenor, Steve Kuhn played piano and Steve Swallow played bass. It features a mix of La Roca originals, Steve Swallow tunes and a couple of standards. Produced by Blue Note co-founder Alfred Lion.

Peter Brötzmann
I Surrender Dear

I Surrender Dear is the result of the Trost label inviting the mercurial saxophonist Peter Brötzmann to Vienna to record cover versions of his favourite jazz tunes over the summer of 2018, something that had always been an artistic goal of his since the beginning of his long and illustrious career.

The Jay Vons
The Word

Channelling a love for vintage Sixties rock and soul music but not falling into the trap of simply regurgitating the past, New Jersey-New York band The Jay Vons ready their debut album The Word. Fuelled by the lead single and title track and featuring ‘Days Undone’, included on the soundtrack for Creed, it’s set to be one of the better retro-rock albums in recent times.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center
Me And My Students Have Reached Higher Levels

A collaboration between eight musicians from around the globe, from America and Germany to Israel and Iran and calling themselves Spiritczualic Enhancement Center, Me And My Students Have Reached Higher Levels is an ambient yet curiously spiritual work reminiscent of Miles Davis at his most abstract.

Prince
1999 (Remastered)

Containing a whopping 35 previously unreleased recordings, the career-defining '1999' album of pop-rock royalty Prince is here re-issued. This super deluxe version also includes a live album, along with various other goodies which celebrate Prince's enormous worldwide impact - quintessential stuff for fans of the Minnesota-born pioneer.

Greg Foat
The Dreaming Jewels

Greg Foat’s latest album was recorded at Malcom Catto’s (The Heliocentrics) studio where Malcom’s ability to create a big sound with vintage equipment is legendary. Whilst Foat is a jazz musician, he tends to bring other styles to the table too - for The Dreaming Jewels it’s the regular bedfellows, funk and fusion. Binker Golding of Binker and Moses and Hugh Harris of The Kooks along with Catto, make up the band for this album.

Jacky Giordano
Organ

Jacky Giordino was a session musician making library music. He also made music under the names Jacky Nodaro and Jacky Sherylee. He loved the organ so he thought he’d make a jazz / funk / soul album in tribute adding a bit of bass synth to the mix. Organ was released in 1977 and it could well have soundtracked a gritty cop B-movie of the time.

Jacky Giordano
Organ Plus

Enigmatic library music making session muso and apparent recidivist Jacky Giordino AKA Jacky Nodaro AKA Jacky Sherylee released his jazz / funk organ tribute album, Organ, in 1977. Organ Plus followed in 1978, this time he took a more laid back approach giving the album a smooth jazz / easy listening sheen.

Junius Paul
Ism

Junius Paul has his roots in the spiritual world playing bass in church. He has honed his craft playing alongside members of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians in Chicago. His sound takes in classic rock, psychedelic soul, jazz from the ‘60s and ‘70s with a heavy spiritual vibe.

Charles Mingus
Pithecanthropus Erectus

Here we have a welcome reissue of Pithecanthropus Erectus by Charles Mingus - a bona fide jazz classic from 1956. The title track, which translates to 'upright ape man' tells the story of a man consumed by greed and power who suffers an inevitable downfall. The upright in the title also refers to Charles Mingus’ bass. Mingus taught the parts to the quartet he played with by ear rather than writing the music down.

SPACE FUNK - Afro-Futurist Electro Funk in Space 1976-84

Technology fuses with funk on this incredible compilation from Soul Jazz Records - SPACE FUNK - Afro-Futurist Electro Funk in Space 1976-84 collects all manner of rare slices of rampaging future-funk from tiny independent labels. Indies-only 2xLP version comes with a bonus four-track 7” single. 

Kamaal Williams
New Heights / Snitches Brew

New EP from our big broken-beat jazz talent Kamaal Williams. After his success with Yussef Kamaal, producer Henry Wu delivers a follow-up to this year’s the Return. Snitches Brew boasts some genre-defying shredding from virtuoso Mansur Brown, whereas New Heights promises to be more of a spaced-out hiphop affair. Limited supply: buy now or face eternal regret.

I Feel An Urge Coming On is a track from his new album, it is back with an exclusive track, I’m Due (For A Heartache). Producer Paul Butler, who has worked with Michael Kiwanuka and Devandra Banhart, was drafted in to shore up his soul-tinged surf rock sound.

Sokratis Votskos Quartet
Sketching the Unknown

Inspired by Greek and Balkan folk music as well as the modal jazz of legends like Davis and Coltrane, Sketching The Unknown is the latest record from the Sokratis Votskos Quartet. Intelligently, the group recognises how those jazz pioneers originally took inspiration from ancient forms of music, making this record a skilful interpretation of the history of a whole genre. 

Naoito
dotA

Confusingly the label is called 180g and the record is on 180g vinyl. Or maybe that's not confusing at all. What we have here are some far out contemporary groove from the far east from this multi instrumentalist and member of Kingdom Afrocks. The original edition came out on Jazzy Sport and amongst its fans were the guys from Lights in the Attic who were impressed by its afrobeat - leaning take on modern production. Get on it.

Steve Lacy
Apollo XXI

Here we have the long-awaited debut LP from The Internet’s Steve Lacy. Though Apollo XXI is Lacy’s first solo full-length, we doubt this precocious young chap was feeling the pressure too much - when you’ve made beats for Kendrick Lamar, given a TED Talk and walked the runway at Paris Fashion week before turning 20 you probably don’t even know what pressure is. Lacy’s carefree approach translates into this gorgeous neo-soul set. Dropping just as the weather heats up, Apollo XXI is a perfect summer jam collection.

Horace Silver Quintet
Doin' The Thing: The Horace Silver Quintet At The Village Gate

Appearing as part of an apparent Blue Note live album reissue program we have Doin’ The Thing: The Horace Silver Quintet At The Village Gate. This funky, soulful classic, recorded in mid-1961, was the only live album the quintet made for Blue Note. The band featured Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor sax, bass player, Gene Taylor  and drummer Roy Cook. All tracks featured are Horace Silver originals. 

Grant Green
Alive!

Alive by American jazz guitarist Grant Green was recorded at the Cliche Lounge in Newark in 1970. Green assembled a crack team of players to get his sound across including jazz drummer Idris Muhammad. Among the tracks are the Kool & The Gang song Let The Music Take Your Mind, Herbie Hancock’s Maiden Voyage, Sookie Sookie, a track co-written by the legendary Steve Cropper and Down Here On The Ground which was co-written by king of 70s movie soundtrack, Lalo Schifrin. Features liner notes by the beautifully named Stanley Dance.

Art Blakey
Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World - Volume 2

Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World Volume 2 by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers was recorded and Birdland in September 1960. The band Blakey assembled was a bit special featuring Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Bobby Timmons and Jymie Merrit. It also featured some of Birdland MC, Peewee Marquette’s stage announcements. Top notch classic jazz stuff.

Miles Davis & John Coltrane
Trane's Blues

Reissue of a couple great early Miles Davis and John Coltrane cuts. Recorded originally in 1956, Trane’s Blues, confusingly different from the homonymous 1999 Blue Note release, showcases some of the earliest recordings by the First Great Quintet. Listen to Coltrane's high-intensity sax and Davis' contemplative trumpet dancing their first dance.

Ryo Kawasaki and The Golden Dragon
Little Tree

Japanese and Brazilian influences met on Little Tree, a much admired and sought-after record made by legendary jazz fusion guitarist Ryo Kawasaki with his band The Golden Dragon back in 1980, not least after Chee named it as his favourite Japanese album on Resident Advisor a few years back. The record now gets a vinyl re-issue via Studio Mule. 

Our Native Daughters
Songs Of Our Native Daughters

Our Native Daughters are a three-piece made up from Rhiannon Giddens and Leyla McCalla who both previously played with Carolina Chocolate Drops, along with Allison Russell, once of Po’ Girl and singer Amythyst Kiah. Their mission, of Songs Of Our Native Daughters, is to reclaim and revive songs of their ancestors that have shaped America.

David Axelrod
Song Of Innocence

Long awaited reissue here from David Axelrod, who made a touching tribute to poet William Blake in Song of Innocence. Deceptive in its welcoming, cozy melodic furniture, it becomes an odd, illusory piece of work, infused with unexpected chords, jazzy timbres and baroque displacements. Axelrod's songs never end up the same ones you stepped into; this is a classic of both another time and place.

Tribe
Hometown: Detroit Sessions 1990-2014

Hometown is the first ever compilation to focus on the latter-day recordings of acclaimed Detroit jazz collective Tribe. Released on single CD or double LP, the 10-track set takes rare and unreleased recordings from founder Wendell Harrison’s own studio and the SereNgeti Gallery & Cultural Center from 1990 through to 2014.

Matthew Halsall
Colour Yes (Special Edition)

A special expanded edition of Colour Yes, the 2009 sophomore album from Manchester-based trumpeter and composer Matthew Halsall. Along with its predecessor Sending My Love the previous year, it put a modern twist on more traditional British jazz influences, winning support from the likes of Gilles Peterson. Here, it’s presented in remastered form with bonus tracks and new artwork.

Sudan Archives
Athena

Sudan Archives is the songwriting persona of violinist, singer, songwriter, and producer Brittney Denise Parks, who’s won critical acclaim for her collision of western R&B sounds with West African rhythms. With Athena, whose front cover boasts a bronze representation of Parks herself, she presents her debut full-length album, which lays out her widest musical vision yet.

Miyasaka + 5
Animals Garden

Animals Garden by Miyasaka + 5 is a rare 1970s Japanese jazz album. It was originally released on ALM, a cult Japanese private press label, in 1979. The combination of its highly sought after status and the musical chops of the players involved makes it a mouth watering proposition for any jazz head. The high energy progressive jazz troupe were led by drummer, Takeshi ‘Bear’ Miyasaka and featured sax player Kōichi Matsukaze, known for his Earth Mother album. Double LP cut at 45rpm, reproduction sleeve, brand new liner notes, on BBE.

Steve Reid
Rhythmatism

Soul Jazz do the decent thing and re-issue Rhythmatism, the second album from drummer extraordinaire Steve Reid. You may know him from his later work with Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) but Steve Reid has worked with everyone from Sun Ra to Miles Davis to Fela Kuti *and* he's ben in jail? Have you? Actually don't answer that question. Also in a clever twist Soul Jazz just about describes the contents of this 1976 era album.

Donald Byrd

Originally released in 1972 on the iconic Blue Note label, Ethiopian Knights saw celebrated American trumpeter Donald Byrd playing with other stellar musicians such as Harold Land, Bobby Hutcherson and Joe Sample. This vinyl re-issue comes with a raft of unseen photographs and brand new liner notes.

Sold out - sorry!

Michael Kiwanuka
KIWANUKA

Just to make absolutely sure that you know it’s him, Michael Kiwanuka has gone for his own (sur)name as the title of his third studio LP. KIWANUKA sees the singer tripping down a bit of a psychedelic soul route - tracks like ‘You Ain’t The Problem’ are shimmering What’s Going On-type things that coalesce around Kiwanuka’s poised, soulful singing. Dangermouse and Kiwanuka’s longtime ally Inflo are the producers.

Pharoah Sanders & Idris Muhammad

Sold out - sorry!

Patty Waters
Live

Known best for her incendiary deconstruction of ‘Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair’, avant-garde singer and composer Patty Waters is one of the most overlooked icons of her age - perhaps because of the 30-year career hiatus she took between the Sixties and the Nineties. In 2018, she performed a one-off concert in New York titled ‘Blank Forms’, and this release, Patty Waters Live, documents that show. The first side is populated with stark ballads, while the second is full of political yet dignified and moving covers harking back to Waters’ Sixties origins. 

François Tusques
Alors Nosferatu Combina Un Plan Ingénieux

Alors Nosferatu Combina Un Plan Ingénieux is constructed from tapes found in François Tusques’s basement, recorded around the time that the legendary French jazz pianist performed a number of similarly iconic concerts from early 1969 to late 1971. The results are released via Cacophonic Records. 

Upperground Orchestra
Euganea

A self-styled ‘cosmic jazz’ collective founded in Italy around the turn of the millennium by Lebanese artist Rabih Beaini, Upperground Orchestra have been silent for over a decade since the release of their last album in 2008. It’ll be fascinated to hear how Euganea, scheduled for the end of 2019, sounds given that protracted absence.

The Harlem Gospel Travelers
He's On Time

The ‘Travelers’ bit of The Harlem Gospel Travelers’ name comes from the fact that the young members of this small choir travelled from all over NYC to the hallowed turf of Harlem to rehearse together. Good job they made the trips, too - He’s On Time is a potent collection of throwback gospel-soul tunes of the sort that Daptone Records have revived throughout the city in recent years. Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed produces.

Makaya McCraven
In The Moment (Deluxe Edition)

In The Moment by Makaya McCraven was more successful than anticipated upon its initial release in 2015 meaning the first pressing disappeared pretty quickly. Giles Peterson made it his album of the week and several US publications made it their album of the year. This is the first repressing of the Paris-born jazz drummer’s sophomore release since 2015, expanded to a 3LP set.
