Kirk Lightsey and Rudolph Johnson with the All Stars
Habiba

Originally released on South Africa’s famous Gallo label in 1974 but never made available for international release until now, Outernational Sounds presents a re-issue of ‘Habiba’ by pianist Kirk Lightsey, saxophonist Rudolph Johnson and a team of premier American jazz players known here as the All Stars. Hugely sought-after for decades, it’s one of the lost gems of South African jazz, the wider scene of which is gradually being re-discovered.

Horace Tapscott with the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra
Horace Tapscott with the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra Live At I.U.C.C.

Even by their usual high standards Soul Jazz Records have outdone themselves here. Horace Tapscott was an influential West Coast jazzer who simply does not get the credit that his outstanding catalogue warrants. Horace Tapscott with the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra Live At I.U.C.C., a recording Tapscott made with his Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra back in 1979, has been out of print for decades. It’s an absolutely superb example of large-ensemble spiritual jazz and is more than worthy of a reissue. Not to be missed.

Jesse Sharps Quintet & P.A.P.A.
Sharps and Flats

A crucial piece of spiritual soul jazz finally gets a vinyl issue for the first time courtesy of Outernational Sounds. Jesse Sharps recorded Sharps And Flats in 1985, a time when he was leading Horace Tapscott’s Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. Indeed Tapscott himself plays piano on two tracks here, and final entry ‘McKowsky’s First Fifth’ is a full P.A.P.A. piece. For the first six numbers Sharps brings the freedom and fire of the P.A.P.A to his quintet while allowing more space for classic melody sections.
