Terje Rypdal
Bleak House
LP | 1968 | US | Reissue (Round 2)
36,99 €*
Release:1968 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Recorded over three sessions in 1968, “Bleak House” marks Terje Rypdals departure from psychedelic group The Dream and off to explore further territories. He would later become one of the most recognizable instrumentalist in European jazz, with releases on the ECM label filled to the brim with his exciting future-tundra guitar sounds.By this time in 1968, he was already in an almost unique position in the Norwegian music scene, at a crucial crossroads between the parallel galaxies of contemporary composition, modern jazz and progressive rock. With a go-ahead from Polydor, Rypdal set up in the studio with Jan Garbarek, Knut Riisnæs, Jon Christensen and Christian Reim (The Dream) to record his solo debut. It is an album that influenced a generation of innovative Norwegian artists and continues to do so to this day.This landmark reissue of this Norwegian classic got fully remastered from the original tapes and contains liner notes written by Rob Young (former editor of The Wire and author of Electric Eden).

Tomasz Stanko was considered the first free-jazz trumpeter in Europe. He debuted at the end of the 1950s in Krakow, joined the Krzysztof Komeda's quintet in the 1960s, and then recorded a masterpiece of European jazz, the album 'Astigmatic'. In the early 1970s he was part of the international free jazz scene and performed at major European festivals with his Tomasz Stanko Quintet. In the 1980s Stanko played with Cecil Taylor and led his own bands that incorporated reggae, Latin, electronic and rap influences. This album, recorded live in West Germany and unavailable for 40 years, is now remastered for optimal sound.

The recording on this release was made the night before Black Beauty was recorded, albeit at the same venue, with the same line-up (Davis, Corea, Grossman, Holland, De Johnette and Airto Moreira on percussion) and also as support to the Dead (and Stone the Crows). This April 9th gig however is a different beast to that of its predecessor. A differing set-list and very sparse arrangements, absent the night before, make this previously unreleased recording very much a ‘lost broadcast’ (it was transmitted live by local FM radio) and will delight fans of Davis’ mid period work.

He is quick to point out that this is a co-operative effort, being a development of a workshop group with each member participating fully. This reissue was newly remastered for optimal sound.

Tracks such as ‘Shifting Gears’ and ‘Los Conquistadores Chocolatés’ have been club classics almost since the album was released. Hip hop and house producers have regularly used it as a source for samples.The bonus cuts shine a light on the Mizell’s production process and show the strength of the material from which the released masters were culled. Hotly anticipated by club and radio, Gilles Peterson is championing this on BBC Six Music, and we expect further support from others.

The series 'Journey To The Centre Of The Song' celebrates one song at a time, and presents it in many guises and interpretations. This first release in the series is dedicated to the classic tune 'Tabu', written by Margarita Lecuona (also responsible for 'Babalu', a classic as well), who was a cousin of the famous Cuban composer and pianist Ernesto Lecuona. The song, recorded as 'Tabou', 'Tabu' and 'Taboo' is a jazz and popular music standard which was first recorded by Cuarteto Machin in 1934 and later made popular by The Lecuona Cuban Boys and others. The aforementioned guises and interpretations span genres from Charles Blackwell's upbeat surfstrumental shaker to the brassy exotic tones of Tito Rivera, from the Cumbian island sounds of Cyril Diaz to Sylvie Moras silky smooth popcorn rendition. The record is completed by Arthur Lyman's crazy voodoo lounge version that evokes visions of palm trees and sun-drenched white sand.

It's 1964 and the first Berlin Jazz Festival is about to reach its absolute peak: the final concert on the night of Friday, 25th September by Miles Davis. And the European subsidiary of Columbia Records, CBS, couldn’t wait to release this legendary event on LP.The new quintet, for the first time with Wayne Shorter on the tenor sax (and not yet as composer), thrilled and roused the audience in the Philharmonie from the first minute to the very end. The classics "Miles(tones)", "So What" and "Walkin’" were performed at an astonishingly fast pace, the ballads were tender and dreamy. Such a magical atmosphere was rarely evoked at later concerts, which was probably due to the excellent acoustics of the large concert hall. The audience were also seated behind the stage, so Miles couldn't turn his back provokingly on people; sometimes he just squatted on the stage. However, this didn’t prevent him from performing his solos lyrically and tenderly, most of them finely nuanced, soft and gentle, yet audible right into the furthest corner. The rhythmic structure created by the young drummer Anthony Williams provided the necessary excitement.Miles at the top of his form, an enthusiastic audience, impressive acoustics and, to top it all, excellent recording technology and a fantastic pressing on virgin vinyl - what more does a jazz fan want? Now’s the time to dig out your credit card!This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the master tapes through to the cutting head.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Four Flies Records is back in full force, this time with an reissue of an EP released earlier in 2017 that looks at the more sophisticated and modern dancefloor... The Italian label embarked on another journey of rediscovery, a specialty they seem to master. The destination of this trip was a dusty vault in Africa, where a famous Italian musician moved years ago... The Italian film and TV industry provided in the 60s and 70s countless opportunity for talented musicians to compose and produce a rich variety of music: soundtracks, library music, experimental music – an infinite amount of recordings that still represents a paradise for the most curious and passionate diggers. So here we have the proof that there’s still lot to discover. Alessandro Alessandroni is one of those pioneers, a maestro that built the legend of Italian soundtracks and library music along with Ennio Morricone, Piero Umiliani and many others. His vault testifies how prolific had been those times, with hundreds of tapes and obscure recordings from that period. Among the many, a dusty tape bearing the hand-written label “Afro Discoteca” captured the attention of Four Flies. The music contained in the tape had never been released until now. When he listened to the tracks, Italian legendary DJ LEO MAS (one of the undisputed inventors of the Balearic sound) told us: “It is surprising to listen to something that sounds so modern... This EP is the perfect union of Afro influences and Italian taste. There’s something Afro lounge here but also incredibly cinematic – it makes me think of John Carpenter’s atmospheres. B1 (Afrodiscoteca) reminds me of clubs I’ve been in Malindi in the late 70s and the closing track is absolutely spellbinding.

Genre:Organic Grooves
As a soloist, Al Cohn was not such an inspired tenor sax player as his colleague Zoot Sims. But he was a superb arranger, an unprofitable yet highly important function when it comes to such workshops. And though Manny Albam also played the baritone sax, his real instrument was the pen. He arranged not only jazz, but also film music and musicals. His arrangements were multi-facetted and tailormade to suit the accomplishments of the individual instrumentalists.For this particular "Jazz Workshop", the record company RCA-Victor could afford the services of excellent session musicians: Joe Newman and Freddie Green came from the Basie Band, Al Cohn, Bernie Glow, and Nick Travis from the Woody Herman Band, and the studio musicians Dick Katz, Buddy Jones and Osie Johnson were present at all times of day and night anyway.As long as you don't expect fierce battles between five tenors, or six tweeters on the trumpet, then you will enjoy this LP with its swinging, relaxed improvisations on such works as "Rosetta", "Linger Awhile", and "I'm Coming Virginia" - and you will realise that Lester Young’s sound has been heard, cultivated and further developed by these musicians.Four trumpets, a tenor sax, and then a piano, guitar, bass and drums into the bargain - that’s certainly no common ensemble, but it certainly is a good reason to purchase this LP. And for certain, this album has been missing in your collection to this day.This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the master tapes through to the cutting head.

In the 1970s, Herbie Hancock’s "Crossings" was to be found on every IKEA record shelf in the student pads of jazz-fusion fans. The cover, with its psychedelic touch, also contributed significantly to its popularity – although it was unclear where the crossing was going to take us …Nevertheless, the excellent trumpeter Eddie Henderson – often underestimated as an improviser and composer, and Benny Maupin – who like Hancock had grown up under Miles Davis’s wing, present a wide range of sound-generating instruments – as was all the rage in those days. Synthesizer and Mellotron (a polyphonic tape replay keyboard and as such practically the prototype of the sampler) were permanent members of the group – and even produce here melodic arches of sound! Whether Bennie Maupin’s "Quasar" launches the group and us into extraterrestrial territory (as stated in one review) is a moot point.This LP is a contemporary historical document, though it certainly doesn’t sound antiquated. That’s why younger listeners too will find pleasure in this experiment from the previous millennium.This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the master tapes through to the cutting head.

Release:1964 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
1964 seemed to be a great year for jazz music in general and this special piece from a quartet led by the great tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves who was a long time member of the Duke Ellington Orchestra confirms this once more in an astonishing way. This record is a typical instrumental post bop album still not on the verge of progressive and free jazz filled to the max with memorable yet steaming compositions. Gonsalves nails it as a saxophone player and his backing crew consisting of piano, stand up bass and drums joins in to create a stream of sound that drags your soul away directly when you put the needle in the groove. The playing feels easy with sweet but rather melancholic melody lines from piano and sax. It seems like they were singing love songs to each other while the rhythm section lays down the beat both lead instruments dance to. The swinging sleaziness of the one or another passage heats up your blood to a simmering level. As if you were swallowed into a scene of Jack Kerouac’s “On the road”, where a sax player goes wild in a small and dusty club somewhere at the West Coast. Paul Gonsalves and his guys take their listener onto a journey due to these very expressive and strong melodies. This should have been a shining crown jewel of jazz where swing benignly turns into bop. The new and often more radical streams within the genre just oppressed this development and “Boom-Jackie-Boom-Chick” whose title was inspired by the name of Mr. Gonsalves’ regular heroin dealer became an underground classic for those who like to dig deeper into a genre to discover the real treasures. This is pure magic put into music!

Genre:Organic Grooves
This is a gem of an album and one of my favorites by McRae. It was recorded live for Atlantic Records at Donte's Club in Los Angeles on November 6, 1971 and released the following year.What I love is not only the choice of songs, but the sound quality and the performance itself. The set not only contains established standards by Ellington, Cole Porter and the other greats, but some new (at the time) material. Including Burt Bacharach's "They Long To Be Close To You" in the set was a wise decision in my opinion. It deserves to be a standard. Of course there is the obligatory Billie Holiday song that McRae would include in all of her performances. On this album it's "I Cried For You", which was one of Billie's first recordings in 1936.The sound quality is superb. The engineer managed to capture not only the energy from the live performance, but the richness of the ensemble backing McRae. Indeed, the musicians backing her are perfect for the material: Jimmy Rowles on piano (who wrote the "Ballad" of Thelonious Monk), Joe Pass on guitar, Chuck Domanico on bass and Chuck Flores on drums.If you love hearing some of the best songs from the Great American Songbook performed by a master this album will delight you. There is a cohesiveness to the album that earns kudos from the production team as well as the performers. Interestingly McRae and her ensemble performed 32 songs the night that this was recorded. One can only speculate as to why a volume 2 wasn't released. Regardless, this is - in my opinion - some of McRae's best live material.Mike TarraniRecording: November 1971 live at Donte's, Los Angeles CA., by Ray ThompsonProduction: Jack Rael

Release:1957 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
In 1957, Miles Davis, high on the success of his recent collaborations with his old friend Gil Evans, persuaded Prestige Records to give Evans his own record date. Evans packed the resulting album with the brilliance that music insiders had recognized since his days as an arranger for Claude Thornhill in the 1940s and his work on Davis’ "Birth Of The Cool" recordings. Writing for only 11 instruments, Evans used his wizardry with dynamics, motion and harmonic voicings to create orchestral effects suggesting a substantially larger orchestra. His settings stimulated his musicians to inspired improvisation. Among the soloists are trombonist Jimmy Cleveland, saxophonists Steve Lacy and Lee Konitz, and Evans himself, making his first recorded appearance as a pianist.This reissue marks the first time ever that the stereo master tapes of this landmark title have been used.

Moving from the southern African republic of Malawi to London at the age of fourteen, Malia spent her teenage years in the Big Smoke. She has recorded three albums in France with Andre Manoukian: Yellow Daffodils (2002), Echoes of Dreams (2004), and Young Bones (2007) - all originating in Manoukian’s Paris studio.In 2010 she got to know the Swiss producer Boris Blank, who, since the 80s as part of the avant-garde duo Yello (‘The Race’, ‘Bostich’) with Dieter Meyer, has enjoyed great success. In 2012, Malia published a tribute to Nina Simone, Black Orchid, which won that year’s ECHO Jazz Award. In 2014, Boris Blank produced the eleven electronically shaped songs of her album Convergence.Malia’s sixth studio album, Malawi Blues/Njira, sees her clear, incisive voice again amplified in a soul-jazz context. ‘A record that I’ve long wanted to make… Right now the time feels right for this… I wanted songs that reflected my awareness and ancestry’, she sums up the vibe of the ten tracks on Malawi Blues/Njira.The album features thoughtful, mostly slow-paced originals, with sparingly orchestrated piano supported by guitar and percussion, amongst them an almost minimalistic cover version of the classic ‘Moon River’. Right from the outset, Malia with Malawi Blues/Njira looks back to the sound of her childhood.

Release:1994 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
When PAINKILLER started in 1991, their first two albums “Guts Of A Virgin” and “Buried Secrets” (both released on extreme metal label Earache) were heavy attacks blending grindcore and free jazz that brought together the musical backgrounds of the three protagonists: drummer MICK HARRIS had just left grindcore legend NAPALM DEATH, JOHN ZORN explored new extremities with his NAKED CITY project while BILL LASWELL had as a member of roaring free jazz quartet LAST EXIT ( PETER BRÖTZMANN / SONNY SHARROCK / RONALD SHANNON JACKSON) proven that he was not only a visionary producer but also an accomplished bassist. But it is their 1994 double album “Execution Ground” that remains the opus magnum of the brilliant trio: ZORN’s unmistakable shrieking saxophone, HARRIS’ pounding drums and LASWELL’s growling sub-bass lines were given heavy mixing desk treatment, resulting in extended tracks that are no less intense than their early works but display the full range of the musicians’ skills. Soaked with reverb and delay, avant-jazz, grindcore, dub and ambient melt into eerie tracks of haunting atmospheres - even more so in the ambient versions of disc 2.Mastered and cut by RASHAD BECKER at D&M Berlin, “Execution Ground” is now available on vinyl for the very first time as 2x 180gr LP incl. a download code and insert in a limited edition of 500 items.

Louis Armstrong and his All-Stars are captured in rare form during these live recordings from 1956 and 1957, which are finally making their vinyl debut with this 180gram Pallas pressing. The album features a great collection of tunes which had become staples of Armstrong’s live shows, including his perennial opener, “Indiana”; the crowd favorite, “Tiger Rag”; the always joyful, “When The Saints Go Marching In”; and the great title-track, “Basin Street Blues”. Satch’s frontline band at the time boasted the very distinctive sounds of trombonist Trummy Young and clarinetist Ed Hall.

Genre:Organic Grooves
1 per customer only!This amazing still unheard monster album crosses many styles, from synth music merged with Bel-Air and Gwo Ka, cosmic Reggae, electronic proto Disco Zouk and spacey Jazz Funk. The whole album is amazing and will please many collectors, way ahead on its time. This is the first release of the new comer label Granit Records. French West Indies continue to deliver some obscure gems and this one, after a long waiting in the dust and anonymity, resurfaces. This private press was originally conceived in 1982, in a context where many French Caribbean musicians were searching for their own style and fusing traditional heritage (Gwo-Ka, Bel Air, and Biguine) and synthetic music. Claude Rodap's “Syn-Ka” sums it all up. The LP comes with an insert in French, English and Japanese.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Across its 11 tracks, Fool plays out Van Dinther’s (Jameszoo) journey to find a musical voice he can be proud of and which can also inspire others. Alongside Verocai, Dafé, and Kuhn, the album features a stellar cast of classical and jazz musicians including pianist Niels Broos, drummers Julian Sartorius and Richard Spaven, bass guitarists Raphael Vanoli and Stephen Bruner (aka Thundercat), and saxophonist John Dikeman. All of these different contributions and approaches are weaved together into a whole by Van Dinther, armed with electronics and naivety. At times coherent, at times seemingly haphazard, the album is always joyful

Genre:Organic Grooves
Thelonious Monk could walk from his flat to New York’s famous Philharmonic Hall on the corner of 64th Street and Broadway when he made his very first appearance there with his Big Band in December 1963. And the other musicians could get there on the underground: Phil Woods, Steve Lacy, Thad Jones – all of them were members of Monk’s closest circle of collaborators. It is no wonder then that the well-known themes were highly agreeable and harmonious. "I Mean You", "Four In One" and "Epistrophy" resounded through the auditorium, the audience was thrilled, Thelonious laughed and danced and a short while later fans could listen to parts of the concert on a recording released by Columbia Records. In a break for a smoke, Monk sat himself down at the piano and played "Darkness On The Delta" – nocturnal atmosphere pure.Does it bear the patina of times long past? Absolutely not! Thelonious Monk is as red-hot as he ever was.

LP | 1956 | EU | Reissue (Captain High)
19,99 €*
Release:1956 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
This album by prolific legend Martin Denny gave an entire genre its name! Originally released in 1956, the importance of 'Exotica' is more than just historical, f.i. since the songs are all outstanding. Based on jazz and folk, this is an early example of mind altering music. The rhythmical base is rooted in Latin music, from mambo via samba to bossa nova, and you find all the Latin American forms of dance music combined with bebop elements, as well as Asian percussion and harmonies. There are colourful tunes that make you think of Japanese folk, but you will also recognize melodies that would be suitable for American western movie soundtracks. The easy listening sound of the '50s comes as the last ingredient and is the icing on the cake.

The performance is beautiful and passionate. He plays flute and saxophone backed up by a Danish jazz orchestra even with an electric guitar in clean mode of course.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Roland Bocquet who created this album has been the keyboard player for the French rock band Catharsis from the late 1960s to 1977. 'Paradia' is a mostly instrumental record with a very lightweight expression. Melodies and rhythms are quite gentle but sometimes take the one or another dramatic twist and turn. Bocquet mixes samba, flamenco, European folk and classics, chanson and dreamy space pop to achieve a music actually easy to access but with a long - lasting effect on the listener. Latin music fans and lovers of rather fluffy electronics from the late 1970s will be the main target group for this album but also friends of obscure movie soundtracks from bands like Goblin shall lend an ear or two to 'Paradia', for there are a few tunes with a rather mysterious atmosphere.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Long thought to be lost to only the most industrious of crate diggers, Bill Plummer's 1968 album Bill Plummer & the Cosmic Brotherhood makes its triumphant return on Captain High Record for the first time reissued on vinyl. Already an accomplished jazz bassist at the time of the album's release, Bill Plummer turned heads on the Cosmic Brotherhood with heavy Eastern and psychedelic influences that challenged contemporary ideas about jazz. Original compositions like 'Journey to the East' and 'Arc 294' are colored by striking sitar sounds, rhythmic chanting and melodic improvisation, while Plummer lends his distinctive touch to songs by The Byrds ('Lady Friend') and Burt Bacharach ('The Look of Love'). The result is an album that reflects a musician at the peak of his creative powers, unafraid to explore new ideas and sounds that meld into a cohesive, spectacular album.

Why didn't this girl get the recognition she deserves? There are some absolutely wonderful songs on this album and even better vocal performances that few have come close to. The collection is slightly jazz tinged but don’t let that put you off. Outstanding tracks include, "Someone To Believe In", "Endlessly" and "Nobody", all of which will touch your heart. But there is a moment in the first couple of lines of the song - "Love Is Like A Newborn Child" - when Miss Crawford hits a note and holds it for a few seconds that just takes your breath away! Worth buying just for that moment alone. If you are into the great vocalists of our time then buy this. It’s fantastic.
