Regional heavyweights like ...view item »

Spiritual Jazz Vol. 8 - Japan: Part One

The latest in Jazzman’s jazz-diaspora compilations takes the listener to Japan. Not a country known in the West for its interpretation of ‘America’s Classical Music’, Japan was in fact the biggest per-capita consumer of jazz LPs throughout the 1980s. The eight offerings here demonstrate how the mantle of ...view item »

Spiritual Jazz Vol. 8 - Japan: Part Two

New compilation from Jazzman records celebrating the underrated world of Japanese jazz.

Spiritual Jazz Vol. 8 - Japan: Parts 1+2

For sure, Japan’s legacy of jazz music is under-heard and under-appreciated outside of the country, despite huge domestic enthusiasm. This double disc Jazzman compilation might put paid to that, being a sixteen track selection of lesser-known (in the West) performers of the more spiritual end of jazz music.

Nat Birchall
Cosmic Language

A surprise move here from jazzman Nat Birchall, who here integrates a harmonium into his music for the first time. Along with it comes a strong influence from traditional Indian music, which Nat and his band integrate into their own sound rather than try to slavishly imitate. Will likely suit fans of Ali...view item »

Two Sisters From Bagdad

Now here’s a special little curio: the cast album for a bold but failed musical theatre production by LaVice Hendrick, which ran for just two weeks back in the day.
