Shankar Jaikishan
Raga Jazz Style

Released in 1968 and never previously reissued until now, this is a rare wonder of a recording from the little-documented Indian jazz scene. Shankar Jaikishan and his ensemble do a masterful job of merging the traditional ragas of Indian classical music with Western swing jazz, and it comes out sounding frankly gorgeous. Raga Jazz Style is reissued by Outernational Sounds.

Creative Arts Ensemble
One Step Out

Excellent re-press from Outernational Sounds here. The Creative Arts Ensemble was the only larger-size ensemble to emerge out of Horace Tapscott’s superb Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. Their 1981 debut LP, made in collaboration with B. J. Crowley, ran with the spiritualism of Tapscott’s ensemble while also nodding to the wildness of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago.

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.

Jeff Resnick
SAC

Jeff Resnick’s unusual -- and rare -- 1978 record 'SAC' was a recording made to promote the School for American Craftsmen, at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Soulful, modal jazz fusion is the order of the day here; organic and packed with funky grooves with oddball / avant synths adding another layer of texture. Complete with trumpet and piano, this set swings! Sometimes tropically. Reissue LP on Outernational Sounds, for their second ever release. Groovy.
