Terry Callier
The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier

The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier was the debut album by the celebrated guitarist. The album was recorded in one afternoon in 1964, capturing a raw talent in his element. With just voice, guitar and a pair of bass players, Callier infuses jazz and soul with folk to create a unique sound. The album wasn’t released until 1968 as the master tape was temporarily lost. This reissue comes with new liner notes by Jason Woodbury which add a valuable narrative to the album. 50th anniversary 2LP reissue featuring 5 previously unreleased alternate takes.

Ry Cooder
The Prodigal Son

Ry Cooder returns to his roots and the roots of American music on The Prodigal Son. He tells a story of a hopeful America through covers of gospel acts such as The Pilgrim Travellers, bluegrass duo, The Stanley Brothers and blues evangelist Blind Willie Johnson. There are also a few original compositions thrown in for good measure. His son, Joachim, adds loops, samples and soundscapes to give the old time music a fresh, modern feel. 180g LP and CD on Concord.

Violent Femmes
Violent Femmes

Although the Violent Femmes took their cues from Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers, their self-titled debut blended folk and punk unlike anyone before or since. The album is a true classic. Contains Femmes fan favourites Gone Daddy Gone, Add It Up and the world famous Blister In The Sun. LP and CD on Concord. CD contains two bonus tracks.

The Pharcyde
Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde

The Pharcyde were arguably the West Coast’s answer to De La Soul, offering a cool alternative to the gangsta rap of the ‘90s. Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde was their debut album, originally released towards the end of 1992, it is now, as well as being Kanye West’s favourite piece of wax, firmly established as a hip-hop classic. 25th anniversary reissue on translucent blue and yellow vinyl.

Alice Coltrane / Joe Henderson
The Elements

Joe Henderson’s career covered a lot of territory, including stints as sideman to Horace Silver, Lee Morgan, Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock. This 1973 album represented a new departure, being a foray into the tamboura and tabla-augmented cosmic jazz territory previously mapped out by Alice Coltrane, who plays piano and harp here. Highly recommended for fans of Alice and Pharoah Sanders’ work of this era. First time on vinyl since the initial release.

Pokey LaFarge
Manic Revalations

Hello Mrs LaFarge  - is your Pokey in? It really is quite some name but that hasn’t stopped the Poke-meister from forging a decent career as an old fashioned songwriter just sayin; what he’s see in’, adding horns to it and sounding something like Graham Parker and the Rumour or maybe a hint of Dexys. Good solid fun.

Ornette Coleman
Tomorrow is the Question!

Tomorrow Is The Question! is Ornette Coleman’s second album. On his debut, Something Else!!! he was contractually obliged to feature a piano. It was obviously a sore-point as here there is no room for pianist. By removing the harmonic structure a piano brought, Coleman felt that the drums of Shelly Manne, trumpet of Don Cherry and bass of Percy Heath and Red Mitchell (playing duties were shared), were free to explore new reaches of jazz. This is an essential piece of pioneering free jazz.

Pulled Apart By Horses
The Haze

Gravel voiced rockers Pulled Apart By Horses return with their fourth album of pummelling jams. Described as Leeds' hardest rocking band they have been all the way down to Sheffield to record this with producer Ross Orton resulting in another batch of abrasive, noisy but tuneful rackets to shake your head about to.

Miles Davis
Blue Moods

Blue Moods by Miles Davis is an essential and cool slice of hip ‘50s jazz. His band on this occasion features none other than legendary double bass player Charles Mingus, drummer Elvin Jones, with Teddy Charles and Britt Woodman on vibes and trombone respectively. Rudy Van Gelder captured the magic at his studio in New Jersey in 1955.

The Thelonious Monk Orchestra
At Town Hall

Some obscure tapas from The Thelonious Monk Orchestra. At Town Hall is a rare artifact - hearing Monk in a band of this size is just another example of his brilliance. Packed with great arrangements of Monk classics, with a killing big band to boot. Led by the man himself, with a host of fantastic sidemen such as Art Taylor and Donald Bird, these cats are getting down to some Monkish business. A total classic and essential listening! Out on vinyl LP from Concord Records.

John Coltrane
Afro Blue Impressions

'Afro Blue Impressions' is a live recording of John Coltrane, originally captured in 1963, but only released by Pablo in 1977. Coltrane's performance here is one of physical boundary-pushing with his soprano sax, moving his hands ferociously around the instrument and trying to elicit near-impossible sounds from it. On this performance, he's backed by the seminal John Coltrane Quartet: McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums and Jimmy Garrison on bass.

Thelonious Monk
Monk's Music

This is a short and sweet collection of some of Thelonius Monk's most iconic and most well-known compositions, under forty minutes in length but bringing together tracks like "Abide With Me" and "Off Minor". 'Monk's Music' is part of Monk's time on Riverside Records and features a roster of excellent musicians making up his septet, including Ray Copeland on trumpet and John Coltrane himself playing tenor; listen closely on "Well, You Needn't" and you'll hear Monk handing over some instructions to Coltrane. A quick in-and-out jazz standard, this one.

Thelonious Monk
Thelonious Monk Trio

Originally released in 1954, 'Thelonious Monk Trio' is the pivotal work of Jazz pianist and composer luminary Thelonious Monkan. The LP features his early Prestige recordings with fellow jazz masters Gerry Mapp and Max Roach, and includes the earliest recorded version of 'Blue Monk' and 'Bemsha Swing' - an essential addition to any jazz fan's record collection. 

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."

Cannonball Adderley Quintet
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.

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers
Caravan

Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, the band he rose to become the natural leader of, released 'Caravan' in 1963, offering up their first record for the legendary Riverside jazz label. The record is considered to be an example of what would become referred to by journalists as hard bop, a bluesy offshoot of jazz. On record, Blakey is joined by jazz icons such as saxophonist Wayne Shorter and Mr. Freddie Hubbard. This reissue of 'Caravan' comes from Concord. 

Miles Davis
The Musings of Miles

Originally released in 1955, 'The Musings of Miles' was Davis's first 12'' on Prestige Records. Recorded at legendary recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder's home studio, this reissue is part of a series marking the 65th anniversary of Prestige Records and the 90th birthday of Rudy Van Gelder. The rhythm section on this recording went on to form the core of Miles Davis's 'First Great Quintet'.
