SPIRITUAL JAZZ VOL.8: JAPAN, PT.1 (2LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK 22.03.18
our latest examination of esoteric, modal & progressive jazz of the 20th century has taken us to japan. the liberating force of jazz has been created and felt all around the world, but few nations on earth embraced the jazz message with the passion and intensity of japan. from the dawn of the jazz age to the present day, japanese audiences have been renowned tastemakers, enthusiasts and champions of the music in the 1980s, japan was the biggest per capita market in the world for jazz records, and it has even been said that japanese jazz fans kept the jazz record industry alive through the lean years of the 1970s, when the music fell from commercial favour in the land of its birth.

PROJECT ELO (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 10.07.14
breathtaking contemporary spiritual jazz from south africa ... when tumi mogorosi composed this suite for jazz musicians and opera vocalists he had never heard the previous successful attempts by donald byrd, max roach or mary lou williams to combine these seemingly unfriendly aesthetics. tumi, born in 1987 and already an accomplished drummer on the joburg scene, was at the time studying music at the tshwane university of pretoria where he became close friends with opera singers working on the same campus. so unlike some of his us peers tumis beliefs are not religious.

LA WILL MAKE YOU PAY (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 21.10.13
in the 70s radio stations were a powerful force across the whole of the us, and anyone with a transistor radio had access all kinds of music. live music was another matter altogether, and unless you found yourself in a major city your nights out were limited to what the local talent had to offer. this was especially so with soul and funk acts, as mainstream rock and pop was where the money was. so for small time oklahoma soul bands such as husband and wife charles and barbara burtons groups messengers inc - and later burton inc - times were tough. however, like many purveyors of soul, tough times were no match for those with determination, persistence and a story to tell. many artists scraped enough money together to make a 45 or two on their own label, but the burtons took this to another level – they got themselves organised and released their own full length lps.
limited to 1000 individually numbered vinyl lps.

BLACK BUTTERFLY (2X7 INCH)
2x7" Vinyl UK 15.06.12
unreleased egyptian jazz: 2x45s set in a unique hand-printed fold-open pyramid! four sides of previously-unreleased ethnic mythic mystic jazz from the legendary egyptian drummer! before the re-release of his album with the cairo jazz band recently, the name salah ragab was best known to jazz fans and record collectors by way of another lp that was recorded with sun ra in the early 70s. his album >prism music unit< with the cairo jazz band was released in egypt with another by the cairo free jazz ensemble, but perhaps only salah himself knew of the other songs he had recorded at the time, but didnt make it onto these lps. the tapes lurking for decades in an old trunk, its taken until now for them to see the light of day, and we present them here as four amazing pieces of egyptian jazz on 2 seven inch singles. entombed within a hand-printed, hand-made pyramid shaped box, this is the first time in 40 years that these recordings will have come to light. ladies and gentlemen, behold the splendor that is salah ragab and the cairo jazz band!

THE ONE (LP)
12" Vinyl D 10.05.12
a whole album of earthy, deep and sublime spiritual jazz – a definition of the genre.
suffused with spiritual uplift but lacking any saccharine in either content or production values, azanyah communicates in a language that harks back to the great message bearers of an earlier time: the musical language of coltrane, pharaoh and their fellow travellers, musicians who had journeyed deep into the wellsprings of the african-american and african traditions, and returned with complex, burnished artifacts that spoke of the highest truths with incandescent urgency. its musical message underpinned by the deep pulse of the eponymous mamaniji azanyahs bass, the one is a document that seems somehow out of time: it comes as a surprise that this album was recorded in the 80s, although the one is not a nostalgic throwback to the revolutionary period couple of decades earlier. rather, it is part of a long continuum of committed visionary sound, drawing strength from the same sources that inspired its forebears, and walking on the same paths toward enlightenment. raw, earthy, deep jazz – spiritual jazz at its finest!

FOLLOW ME TO THE POPCORN (2X12 LP + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 11.10.16
slick, sultry and sublime rnb infused with soul & jazz. originating in belgium at the tail end of the 1960s and into the 70’s, popcorn was a music and dance scene with an emphasis on often obscure black american records of the then recent past. drawing immediate parallels with the uk’s northern soul scene from approximately the same time, young people would flock from all corners of belgium to cram into a converted farmhouse barn to dance to these exotic sounds. but whilst northern favoured an often uptempo, stomping 60’s soul sound, popcorn focused almost entirely on slower, moodier numbers.

MR. BONGO (2X12 INCH GATEFOLD LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK 01.12.15
26 red hot skin slappin bongo bashin latin jazz n mambo bangers - the phrase living legend is undoubtedly overused but there can be few people more deserving of such an accolade than jack costanzo. born on the 24th september 1919, costanzo is arguably the most significant percussionist of the modern era. playing with many key orchestras, leading his own band, appearing in numerous tv shows and films and tutoring bongo playing to the stars, more than any other figure jack costanzo brought percussion, specifically latin percussion and his trademark bongos, to widespread attention. but he wasn t merely a popularist, he was in turn revered by his peers and critics alike for his natural ability, invention, and perhaps most importantly his sheer versatility. he became known as mr. bongo (first coined by jazz critic leonard feather), and the tag could hardly be more appropriate.

INVOCATIONS (LP)
12" Vinyl UK 30.10.15
the music of nat birchall joins with a long-flowing conversation in jazz. his chosen tongue is that of the spiritualised musical discourse whose vital source can be found in the sacred testaments of john coltrane, and which was channelled most directly by his fellow travellers albert ayler, pharoah sanders, and his wife alice. many others followed where coltrane led, giving voice in music to the esoteric renewal of the soul and mind that lent spiritual strength to the black counterculture, and complemented the political radicalism of the late 1960s and 1970s. this rich vein of spirit music has rarely been tapped by british jazz musicians, and birchall is one of the few to have been drawn to it with the conviction of heart that it demands. for these are the sonic and spiritual spaces where the colossi of an earlier age declaimed and confessed with sacrificial passion, from within the flames of revolution.

DEDICATION OF LOVE (LP)
12" Vinyl D 20.04.15
much is said in the mainstream media about million-selling records, yet the opposite is true of the no-hitters the obscurities that sold badly and which sank without a trace. this is the bittersweet experience of a hard-working soul band that experienced the elation of a million-selling chart-topper - but also the dejection of a self-released flop that sold so few copies that barely a handful can be traced to this day. the 1976 album dedication of love by bobby moore & the rhythm aces is that flop and is known today in just a handful of copies, selling for up to $2000 on the highly-competitive rare soul market

esoteric, modal and deep jazz vocals 1960-86 - the power of the human voice, especially when held in song, has long been known to be immensely influential, potent and emotive across all of humankind. when conveying a message, the spoken word - whether in speech, poetry or song - is infinitely more evocative than that of written. and when that message is voiced in the realm of jazz, amidst the open and dramatic freedom that only jazz can provide, the message can be all the more poignant.

AT LAST (3X7 INCH)
3x7" Vinyl UK 22.09.14
when etta james passed away in early 2012, the tributes and plaudits flooded in the world over gone forever was the soul diva and legend, the peerless and seemingly indomitable, screaming, bawling r&b siren who had seen off several near death experiences with dangerous substances and even more dangerous men. as the music world mourned, the question still remained - did etta really receive her dues during her life? that recent interest in her career probably peeked when portrayed onscreen by a certain beyonce knowles in the chess biopic *cadillac records* would suggest the answer is no. this short and sweet set of six songs spread across three 45rpm records captures various key snapshots and key moments in ettas early career. we hear the precocious, sassy teenaged delinquent on *that s all*, the snarling rock and roll mama on *tough lover* and we revisit her coming of age moment, the song that came to spark her adult career into a new direction and lifespan and became her signature: *at last*.

SOUND OF THE CITY EXPERIENCE (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 18.12.13
one of the eternal issues of record collecting is the question of how good records actually become rare. perhaps the record company goes bust. perhaps the label is busy pushing some lame pop act on the roster, leaving the good stuff to rot. maybe the band splits up just before the release. less frequent than any of these is this: perhaps the record wasnt supposed to sell in the first place. as strange as it seems, that was exactly the case with this album, the sounds of the city experience.

sublime christian folk jazz from 1970s norway - in the 60s and 70s churches throughout europe had serious competition for the attention of its younger members. priests and older churchgoers were highly concerned that teenagers were expressing sympathy for the devil rather than sympathy for christ and his teachings. a compromise had to be found - the evolution of christian folk, rock and jazz was about to begin.

every once in a while, a record presents itself so defiant in its refusal of categorisation that it becomes the bane of those poor vinyl archaeologists whose business it is to file and classify. the aptly named >the naked truth< is one such artifact, a wayfaring stray of an album that weaves its insouciant magic through the edgelands of sound. the musical provenance is palpable - an electric blend of spiritual jazz, rhythmic black psychedelia and far-out exotica - but where it’s headed remains a mystery, echoing shapes so strange that they fit no musical crevice. this is an album whose grooves are slow and deep, with a languid, balmy, and irresistibly pensive aura. it is moody: cosmic abstractions ooze from every sweet inflection, lulling arpeggios lose themselves in a haze of forgetfulness.

THE JAZZ BOX (3X7 INCH)
3x7" Vinyl UK 18.11.10
as the ears of jazz enthusiasts become ever more refined, the interest in spiritual jazz has risen greatly in recent years. we are talking about music that is rich, warm, deep, progressive, peaceful, conscious, cerebral and celebrating, and the period of enlightenment was the 60s and 70s. this was the time when private press lps were custom made by the musicians themselves in order to exhibit their art, reflecting the neglect and disregard afforded to them by the jazz mainstream.

DANCE MAN (7INCH)
7" Vinyl UK 12.09.09
two solid sides of sister funk dance floor dynamite here, and you also get to play which version is best? the late keisa browns frenetic mover dance man has long been a grail of the cultured funk collector but until fairly recently not many knew that producer earl williams re cut an alternate version of the song with unknown vocalist liz spraggins. at last count there was still just the one solitary known copy of lul 1003 in the collector world, making it even rarer than the keisa original. but how does it fare by comparison? we ll let you decide which you prefer with this handy pairing of the two: the infectious, shuffling groove and the sassy vocals of keisa or the stripped down fatback drum and bass of the spraggins version. we still cant make our minds up!

stone cold classic funky disco floor filler thats stood the test of time. first time ever on 12inch!!! taken from the hard to find self titled lp by tommy stewart, bump & hustle music is the definitive disco funk party anthem. it was recorded in 1976 in atlanta, georgia, and since then the lp has found itself in the play boxes of soul, funk and jazz djs alike. however, its not until now that this amazing song has finally made it onto the preferred format of dance djs the world over û the 45rpm 12inch single. in 1976 tommy stewart was a busy man, working as an arranger, producer, performer and writer for a host of soul and rnb artists. the lp made for abraxas records was the first to go directly under his name, and although it failed to take off locally, the lp soon became known by djs across the world primarily for the club smash bump & hustle music. as it happens that song in particular almost didnt exist but for tommy needing to come up with something quick in order to fill in a gap in the album. conceived and recorded on the spur of the moment, and with backing vocals by isaac hayes singers hot buttered soul overdubbed later, its a superb example of rhythmic simplicity blended with soulful, catchy harmonies. its just impossible to listen to bump & hustle music without a broad smile coming to your face, and when played loud in a club, its impossible not to dance!

CARNAVAL / ESENCIA
12" Vinyl UK 09.06.09
some spicy latin salsa to heat up the dancefloor at your tropical dance party! there s nothing quite like listening or dancing to good strong latin music, and i m not talking about wishy washy bossa nova or boring rumbas that your mum and dad danced to on their honeymoon cruise in the caribbean. i m talking about tropical rhythms that make your hips grind and jiggle, complex, crazy beats that make your feet take on a life of their own, hypnotic piano and blasting horns that whirl around inside your head, intensifying an already exotic experience. it doesn t matter if you don t understand the lyrics, the fun is all there in the vibrant atmosphere and the knowledge that you re listening to pro musicians making seriously exciting music.
when it comes to proper latin, there are loads of bands to choose from. most of them don t get a peep outside of their local communities, it appears that the latinos are only too happy to enjoy their own music, and so what if the rest of the world can t hear it? not so orcestra esencia - this west coast usa outfit can give it some if they really have to. check out these two irresistible tracks. tropical dancefloor salsa at its finest. now that s what i call bangin latin!
we re not the macnamaras, and we re not leaders of men. we are an east bay salsa band, the finest in the land. we play at wakes and weddings, and every fancy ball. we cancel playing funerals, to play the carnival!

IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR (7 INCH)
7" Vinyl US 17.07.08
the summer of 66 was a good year for della reese. the celebrated jazz diva had a string of albums to her name, her exuberant vocal talents were in constant demand in venues and clubs all over the us, and she had just bought a luxury house in the hollywood hills. among her many engagements, one booking at the playboy penthouse just down the road was a night not to be forgotten. in amongst the luxurious padded booths occupied by movie moguls, starlets and playboy bunnies was recording equipment that would capture the magic of that unforgettable night with one of the most wildly provocative pieces ever recorded. della would accompany bobby bryants jazz combo with ad libs and shocking stories in her own inimitable, outrageous way, and would deliver ervin drakes very good year in flamboyant style. here we have that very song, live as it was heard that very night, and in studio form as it was released a few months earlier. in over 40 years nothing has changed, the music provided by the good humoured songstress is here once more to provoke, to astonish, to enjoy! mid tempo soul jazz with seductive femme vocals displaying a feisty charm and attitude. a superb dj play if dropped onto a party crowd thats looking for something different, sultry and wild!

SPIRITUAL JAZZ VOL.5 - THE WORLD (CD)
cd UK 05.09.14
esoteric, modal and deep jazz from around the world, 1961-79 - until it was swept aside by the pop explosion of the 1960s, jazz was the most popular modern sound on earth. from the new world and the caribbean to africa, across the soviet bloc and the british empire to the far east, jazz music was embraced, adopted, played and enjoyed. having examined spiritual jazz as it was expressed in the us, and followed its messengers and influences in europe, this fifth installment of our spiritual jazz series presents jazz from the rest of the world: a collection of jazz messages hailing from the four corners of the world that are united in their diverse treatment of the jazz idiom
