A refreshingly creative new talent.

Jaga Jazzist
Jaga Jazzist - '94-'14

Post-rock wasn't always this drab; there was a time when it could sound like it was made by a jazz band living in a beanstalk. Jaga Jazzist's inventive and ever-curious sound infused nu-jazz with the climactic disciplines of Talk Talk and Tortoise. They're pretty old now, though, and this year marks their twentieth anniversary, so they've reissued their most bombastic and jazz-dominated work, A Livingroom Hush.

The gravelly voiced Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens belt out a couple of classics on this  7” vinyl from Daptone. Amazingly not named from the enigmatic wife of the Doctor from the BBC’s Doctor Who, but in fact a celestial rendition of the Texan tune transposed through rhumba to the Caribbean. Gospel combined with the island sound makes for an excellent record.

The Birth of Funk

This new compilation on History of Soul covers the formative years of funk music in the first half of the 20th century, originally played by jazz musicians in New Orleans who would hit the clubs and play something more downbeat and dirty after wowing the crowds with their hot jazz of an evening. You've got all sorts on here from classics like Earl King and James Brown to more obscure crate-digging gems like The Turquinettes and Porgy & the Polka Dots.

The Soul Of Designer Records

This monolithic boxset attempts to give its listener an idea of the scope of Designer Records' scope. The duo behind the operation, soul men Style Wooten and Roland Jones, recorded up to five hundred singles, many of them now revered as classics in traditional gospel. This set of one hundred (plus one more for luck!) songs shows how distinctive and fluid their style was, and now it can be heard in every recording artist they worked with.

Big Boss Man
Last Man On Earth

Big Boss Man aren't a one-genre band: they make boogaloo music, formally, but will often delve into jazz, psychedelic, Latin rythms and whatever else they feel like. 'Last Man On Earth' is their fourth record, and their first in four years, too: it collects fifteen tracks varying in their particular dance aesthetic of choice, including the smooth jazz single "Aardvark".

With roots in the rich musical history of North America as well as Africa, Sinkane provide a new perspective on what Soul Music is, and what it can be. Sinkane’s Mean Love rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa.

Stan Getz & Cal Tjader
Stan Getz & Cal Tjader Sextet

This newly reissued vinyl addition is a ‘MUST HAVE’ title for for both Getz and Tjader fans. In the vein of many a smooth West Coast jazz outing, this 1958 disc finds original cool stylist Getz paired with vibraphonist Cal Tjader on a very enjoyable selection of jazz standards and Tjader originals. The lineup includes pianist Vince Guaraldi, guitarist Eddie Duran, bassist Scott La Faro, and drummer Billy Higgins (this was one of the earliest record dates for either La Faro or Higgins, both of whom were playing with Getz at San Francisco's Black Hawk in between recording sessions). Guaraldi's spry "Ginza Samba" kicks thing off with nimble and imaginative statements by all the soloists. Tjader's swinging originals "Crow's Nest" and "Big Bear" provide prime solo vehicles as well, while his lovely waltz number "Liz-Anne" adds some nice contrast to the set, eliciting one of Getz's best solos in the process. The group rounds things out with fine ballad readings of "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" and "For All We Know."

In San Francisco

A classic and soulful hard-bop effort from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet. In San Francisco is a great testiment to not only Adderley and co, but to the jazz scene in the late 50's and early 60's. With bebop over a decade old and the west-coast sound pervading the start of the 50's, cats like Art Blakey, Horace Silver, and Adderley were playing their own funky gospel tinged hard-bop - taking the forum back to it's roots. With brilliant originals from Adderley, Timmons and Monk. A collection essential. Out on vinyl LP from Concord Records.

Tom Carter and Pat Murano

This is a second collaboration between Charalambides man Tom Carter and No Neck Blues Band feller Pat Murano. The pair had already made an eponymous LP back in 2012 but have now colklaborated again, this time at Carter's place, passing musical ideas back and forth, forth and back. There are four lengthy improvisations using Carter's piercing, acid-lead guitars against Murano’s sympathetic synthesizer lines, the sounds of guitar, synthesizer and drum machine to dissolve into one another, often to the point where they seem to come from the same source.

There were dancers, too, but I don't think you can hear them.

Sten Sandell & Paal Nilssen-Love
Jacana

The best improvisors are the ones that seem to invent and uninvent their instruments right in front of your eyes and ears. Swedish pianist Sten Sandell and Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love are two musical champions with a long experience of doing exactly that. Jacana, the latest in Rune Grammofon’s occasional series of unusual duo combinations, features the pair’s sparky improvised set captured at the 2013 Kongsberg Jazz Festival in southern Norway. Sten and Paal have been working together since forming a trio with Swedish bassist Johan Berthling (Fire!, Tape, etc) in 1999, but this duet marks the start of a new chapter in their relationship. Jacana’s three tracks find the players flying close to the limits of their comfort zones, sometimes resembling the strange formality of Asian court music. It’s savage and ritualistic, spiky yet flowing, arhythmic but surging with understated pulses.

Funkadelic
The Electric Spanking Of War Babies

Tommy Guerrero
No Mans Land

Described as a musician, designer, artist and skateboarder from San Francisco, I immediately find Tommy Guerrero annoying. He’s just bound to be one of those too-cool-for-school kids isn’t he? Probably some kind of trendy hairstyle and undoubtedly with that most annoying of traits; an upbeat enthusiasm for everything. Urgh. His music on No Mans Land is more mature than my judgement of him however, with some solid beats and some good grooves, it’s edging into some very nice hip-hop beats indeed.

Fatima
Yellow Memories

Some extra sexy heat for your frozen bones from Fatima. Yellow Memories is the debut from one of the deepest soul stirrers around. These grooves are so damn loose they barely stay together, yet they're tighter than than George Osborne's autumn statement. The list of producers will make you weep, with some of the hottest cats around on this one. As if that wasn't enough, Fatima's voice is pure jazzy R&B sass, so don't sleep on it.

BADBADNOTGOOD
III

The third album from the three jazz/hip-hop lads (jazz-hop?), BadBadNotGood, or BBNG, create moody, dark hip-hop instrumental beats through some excellent drumming, piano and bass playing. It’s exciting, live music which, like the best instrumental hip-hop from the likes of J Dilla and Madlib, creates a story without the need of lyrics.

Larry Young
Unity

A freshly remastered vinyl version of legendary jazz organist Larry Young’s 1966 sophomore date for Blue Note, released to mark the label’s 75th anniversary. This session featured Woody Shaw (trumpet), Joe Henderson (tenor sax) and Elvin Jones (drums), who ably facilitated Young’s modal expansions. Young would go on to distinguish himself as one of the fieriest contributors to the burgeoning sound of jazz fusion with later albums on Blue Note and, more famously, with Miles Davis (on ‘Bitches Brew’) and Tony Williams (in Lifetime). Unity is almost as well known for its iconic Reid Miles cover design as for the pioneering music within.

Free Nelson Mandoomjazz
The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus

You’ll be pleased to hear that The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus by Free Nelson Mandoomjazz sounds pretty much as you’d expect ‘doomjazz’ to. Relatively traditional jazz passages (but with heavy bass) lurch into grinding metal with wild saxophone over the top. I also applaud the group for seemingly interrupting their own band name.
