1979 Linda Williams gold from the Arista archives gets a much welcomed official, remastered reissue. With an intro that does exactly as its title suggests, ‘Elevate Our Minds’ became a huge rare groove record in the mid to late ‘80s. Produced by the late, great Richard Evans who worked with the very best in the business, from Gene Chandler and Marlena Shaw, to Ramsey Lewis and Ahmad Jamal, it’s supremely arranged, blending a Bossa Nova beat and trumpet trills with Linda’s distinctly New York authenticity that comes through in the vocals. Like a trip to the blissful beaches of Rio whilst bringing a touch of the New York disco glam along for the ride. Exotic yet familiar, all in the same breath.On the flip, ‘City Living’, a straight up New York disco killer - oozing with funk, dripping in brass blasts, off beat hats and spruced up synths, it’s a primetime ode to the hustle and bustle of the city. Williams’ glorious tones, assisted by a majestic troupe of backing singers, glisten alongside the classy drumming and polished bass badness that lays behind it.

Hot-on-the-heels of their performance on BBC 6 Music, for Gilles Peterson's ‘UK Jazz Special’, at the hallowed Maida Vale studios (alongside Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon-Jones and Fatima), Ishmael Ensemble bring their Bristol-inspired ‘Severn Songs’ project to a triumphant finale. ‘Severn Songs 3’ pays homage the mighty river itself, in both title and mood. Field recordings from the banks of another iconic river - the Ganges - made by keyboardist and co-writer Jake Spurgeon meander in and out of focus, whilst celestial percussion ushers in the full-bodied tone of celebrated jazz trumpeter Yazz Ahmed's horn. The track climaxes in true Ishmaelian fashion with a whirlwind of pulsating synthesizers, crashing drums and hypnotic brass flurries, before easing back into the dulcet rhythm of oars lapping through water.On the flip, a reprise takes the listener on a much gentler ride. However, the tension and dynamics of this twin version are still very much apparent. Throughout the release, an array of new instruments open up in Cunningham's armoury; most notably bass clarinet, alto-flute and the sarod – leaving the listener just a few strings shy of a full orchestral experience.As a whole, the ‘Severn Songs’ project has seen Cunningham develop an already diverse palette into something more focused. Tiptoeing between the current British jazz boom and Bristol's rich musical ancestry, the group have found a truly unique and refreshing voice. ‘Severn Songs 3’ follows media praise, radio airplay and DJ support for the first two 7”s in the series, from the likes of Dan Snaith (Caribou), Gilles Peterson, Tom Ravenscroft, DJ Mag, Complex, Self-Titled, The Vinyl Factory and XLR8R. Prior to that, 2017 saw Ishmael Ensemble’s first EP ‘Songs for Knotty’ released on Banoffee Pies, followed by an official remix of Carl Craig’s ‘The Melody’ for Infiné. With rumours of an album ‘round the corner, a busy touring schedule and continued support from international tastemakers, 2019 is shaping up to be an ascendant year for this talented producer and his Bristolian troupe.

Ulysses Crockett studied classical piano from 6 to 14 years old, adding alto saxophone and flute at 16 years old while attending Oakland California's McClymonds High graduating in 1956 as student body president and Valedictorian entering Stanford University in the fall of 1956.During the Lawrence Ferlinghetti Bay area beatnik era (circa 1957-1960), Ulysses' group was known as The Latin Jazz Quintet which included an early female bongo drummer named Joyce Zavaleta. Joyce had an extensive vinyl LP collection of afro-cuban records including compositions and performances of legendary bassist Israel 'Cachao' López and international known singer Celia Cruz. Joyce met U.C. Berkeley Student John Miller and taught him the Cuban piano styles. The regular members of the Afro-Blue Persuasion band consisted of John Miller - piano, Harald Haynes - congas, Robert Belinksy - drums, Ulysses Crockett - vibraphone, and Robert Bing Nathan - upright contrabass.At nineteen years old each, bassist Paul Jackson (who appears with genius composer, performer and pianist Herbie Hancock) and tenor flautist Robert Harvey were both serving in the U.S. Army station located in the San Francisco base known as the Presidio. On weekends, both Paul and Robert would sit in with the Afro-Blue Persuasion band."Live at Haight Levels" is the one and only recorded live performance by the Afro-Blue Persuasion. Finally, the songs are going to see the light of the day after 52 years! This is afro-cuban jazz at its very best! A stunning treasure rarely to be found - unless it's on Mo-Jazz!

Volume 9 of Mukatsuku Afro series kicks off with 'M'Ongele M'Am' from Cameroon artist Eko Roosevelt Louis taken from his early 1980's self-titled album and licenced for this 45 from Nubiphone & Africa Seven. The track was one of the highlights of the 2017 Pop Makossa compilation for Analagog Africa and it's the first time ever on a single in its own right.Driving brass funk fuelled afro disco does not really get much better than this. On the flipside Georges Ouedraogo from Burkina Faso gives us us the dance floor bomb ''Deni'' taken from his 1978 long player ''Gnanfou Gnanfou'' also licenced from Africa Seven and also the first time ever on a single. Punchy brass offset by those hipnotic vocals and funky wah-wah guitar has a deserved place on the flip. Strictly no repress. Essential 45 for the dancefloor !

Musilogue surprises us again with a new limited edition of this album we sold out twice in 2018 with a finger snap. This time Musilogue highlights the artwork as this reissue comes with a screen-printed sleeve that has the title and artist name also printed. Which makes it a bit pricier. In comparison to the other version we are now offering, this version comes with the blue backside (see pictures). Limited to 150 copies. We don't get many copies. So be quick.We are happy we could get our fingers on some copies of this limited run.Ryota Nozaki(Jazztronik) has just launched a new project called Musilogue. Musilogue is a cultural music project by musicians who are active in many music scenes. At the moment 60 musicians are already involved in Musilogue. They believe professional musicians are artists and artisans. They can create new kinds of high quality music through our collaboration. To record this music and to introduce a new style of working for musicians is Musilogue’s biggest theme. On the other hand Musilogue has a plan to start teaching music to people who want to enjoy music more and also to become professional. Musilogue has released its 1st album “Elephant and a barbar” by Bass player Ichiro Fujiya and Sax player Takeshi Kurihara. This album was originally made for selling at venues where they would play. Due to popular demand Musilogue decided to release it more widely. Ichiro Fujiya is an amazing bass player who has supported Jazztronik for 10 years and also other Japanese pop music artists.T akeshi Kurihara started off in the underground scene and since then he has supported many artists like Soil&pimp sessions, Kyoto Jazz Sextet and Jazztronik. Ryota Nozaki(Jazztronik) plays piano and Rhodes and has composed 2 tunes (8)(9) on this album. Effective guitar is played by Arata Inoue who is active in the underground music scene in Tokyo.Musilogue has chosen young creator Ryo Kawahara as a remixer for a bonus track. “Elephant and a barbar” is their own style of New Jazz with a deep and sometimes ambient feeling across the album. This is an album where you can feel the progress of Music.

With the fifth release and the first 7inch, we turn our attention to Brazil. Finally, one might think, since it’s an open secret that we have a soft spot for music from the leading coffee exporter in the world. So, when Brazilian DJ, record collector and digger extraordinaire Junior Santos brought this Celso Rubinstein 7-inch EP (called «Compacto» in Brazil) to the our attention he hadn’t to do a lot of persuading to have NOAJ reintroduce this beautiful piece of music to fans around the world some 36 years after its first appearance. Born in Brazil to a family of Holocaust survivors, Celso Rubinstein’s career as a singer allowed him to take residency in several countries including Spain, Portugal, Israel and Britain. He performed as an artist in numerous clubs and supported other artists as backing vocalist. In 1982 he booked studio time at Chico Batera’s studio in Rio De Janeiro to record two songs for an intentional debut album.

Nick Waterhouse grew up in a coastal town near Long Beach, CA. It was a serene setting: the ocean stretching out for miles to the North and South, manicured lawns, two-story homes, long swathes of concrete highway, fast food chains and mega malls. He was there for two decades. Then, he left. He found a home in his early 20s in San Francisco, working at record stores alongside a collective of likeminded young crate-diggers and 45 collectors. And then he started making his own records: “Time’s All Gone” in 2012, “Holly” in 2014, and “Never Twice” in 2016. These were evocative albums, steeped in a perfectionism and clarity of vision that informed every choice, from the studios to the players, the arrangements to the album art. Everything, deliberately designed and purposeful, bubbling over with power and feeling. And as those records rolled out into the world, Waterhouse found a dedicated audience of his own as well as a bevy of influential champions and collaborators, including garage-rock mystic Ty Segall, retro-futurist R&B bandleader Leon Bridges and the LA-based quartet Allah-Las, whose first two albums he meticulously produced and played on. There is a “Waterhouse Sound” and it comes from both the man and the method — recording everything on magnetic tape, through analog equipment, and playing live (!), eyeball to eyeball, whenever possible. Now, he’s finished his fourth album. He’s calling it “Nick Waterhouse.” And whether intentional or not, it is perhaps his most reflective — and reflexive — album, employing all of the mature production techniques learned throughout his professional career while retaining a viscous edge that allows it to land with colossal impact — more raw, heavy and overtly confrontational than anything he’s made before. “Nick Waterhouse” was recorded at the finest working studio in Los Angeles, Electro Vox Recorders, and co-produced by Paul Butler (The Bees, Michael Kiwanuka, Devendra Banhart), the master of all things warm, rich and wooly. Nick’s songs here are personal, but personal in the way that “Please Mr. Postman,” “What’s Going On” and “Cathy’s Clown” are — intimate, direct, yet still malleable enough for listeners to suffuse their own life stories into the mix. The album is thick with talented players, including Andres Rentaria, Paula Henderson and the staggering, howling saxophone of Mando Dorame. All of the new Waterhouse songs sound big. Brawny and muscular. The lyrics are suspicious, outraged and, at times, very vulnerable (muscle is just flesh, after all). Waterhouse uses an economy of words to deliver complex, coded messages. He offers up equal parts criticism of the time we live in and innate human flaws. He paints relationships under the cover of darkness, slashing through neo-noir fantasies that are romantic, blood-spattered and bracingly aware of the powerlessness felt among people, amid the rapid onslaught of commercialism and technological progress. And, as has become his signature, he throws in a tune written by a close friend. On this record, he covers “I Feel an Urge Coming On” in tribute to the song’s author, Nick’s own mentor and collaborator Joshie Jo Armstead, who wrote music with Ray Charles and sang as both an Ikette and Raelette in the ’60s and ’70s. He’s four albums in, but it makes sense that this specific record is the one that takes his name. You can really here Nick on this one. Not just the band. Not just the songs. Not just the sound. HIM. You can hear his mind at work. His passion. His focus. More importantly, you can feel it.

The Brazilian born master guitarist Bola Sete (literally translated to “Seven Ball” and a snooker reference) originally studied music at the Conservatory of Rio while playing in his own jazz sextet and small samba combos. Sete spent time in Italy and also absorbed jazz influences as he was a avid fan of Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt. It was these influences, along with the local samba and bossa nova flavor he was absorbing on a daily basis in Brazil that form the foundation of his sound. This record, his debut album from 1957, combines those influences beautifully in a perfect jazz samba setting, a fully formed artist who had been a professional musician for years before releasing this album. Sete counted among his admirers and fans such disparate legends as Dizzy Gillespie and John Fahey, and one listen to this masterful debut will tell you why. An absolute essential on 180 gram vinyl.

Johnny’s Disk Record is an independent jazz label run by the owner of jazz cafe Kaiunbashi No Johnny located in Rikuzentakata city in Iwate prefecture, Japan. The legendary label released a string of albums of high quality but down-to-earth music, spanning from modern jazz, avant-garde jazz to left-field pop. Albums such as “farewell my johnny / left alone” and “aya’s samba” has reached cult status among fans as some of the best works to come out of the japanese jazz scene. Another japanese jazz classic, Aya’s Samba was a debut effort by bassist Eiji Nakayama, who played as part of elvin jones’ jazz machine and toured with Don Friedman. This album is an important release in the johnny’s disk catalogue, not only because it is the first ever release, but also because the owner hearing the band play was the reason why the label came to be. “Aya’s Samba” is a mellow jazz samba in minor key that’s considered a japanese jazz classic. Slow ballad “yellow living” is drenched in melancholy with emotive keys and sax notes, while the dreamy “sea sea town” impresses with a captivating, expressive sax solo. The 4 tracker ends with “far-away road,” an uptempo tune with rhythmic keys.

You might know Peter Matson as the founder, frontman, and guitarist of NYC-based breakout band Underground System, who recently released a debut album of otherworldly global-dance anthems (on Soul Clap's self titled imprint) and have been touring their live show at venues around the US. Matson's roots, while nestled in worldly live sounds, also firmly grip deeper dance music styles, though they manage to still pack a refreshingly eclectic energy. His debut EP 'Short Trips' for Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz connects the dots between his time moving bodies in the club as a DJ, as well as in his group as a guitarist and producer, though this record is better suited for a woozy club floor. "Roma Norte" kicks off the wax with its soulful cocktail of latin-house styles and hypnotic basslines that would elevate the opening hours of any club night. Deep house legend and Freerange Records boss Jimpster provides an ethereal, creative remix that delves into afro-house territory. "3AM to Sete" is a warm and bubbly deep house tune that sounds like something you might hear late-night in a South London nightclub—it's all warm bass vibrations and subtle synth explorations. Matson's seasoned instrumental skills shine on "126," another breezy synth jam with just enough punch to make you move, eyes closed, of course. 'Short Trips' sounds like the work of someone not interested in where one scene ends and the other begins, but instead, where they connect.

Sultry r&b solo artist Harriet Brown is back with a new batch of fully-realized future funk, a slow-burning dispatch from a dayglo dance floor. The Los Angeles by-way-of-the Bay artist honed his musical chops in church, the birthplace of so many soulful sirens. His first project, New Era EP came out in 2014, setting off a firestorm of critical and fan adulation. Who was this bowl cut rocking, falsetto dropping, shiny suit man?He followed up with a bombastic debut album, Contact, an expertly crafted, extraterrestrial soul rumination on the ways we fail to connect, restart, and try again. It was also a transitional album. Made between the Bay and LA, it’s about the electricity of new connections, the distance of old friends.Mall of Fortune is his second full-length album, an airtight meditation on anxiety, paranoia and indecisiveness – decision paralysis and the free-flowing guilt that follows. The bowl cut is gone, but the shine is intact.

Transparent Orange Vinyl! Durand Jones & the Indications aren't looking backwards. Helmed by foil vocalists in Durand Jones and drummer Aaron Frazer, the Indications conjure the dynamism of Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, AND the Impressions. Even with an aesthetic steeped in the golden, strings-infused dreaminess of early `70s soul, the Indications' sophomore LP, American Love Call, is planted firmly in the present, with the urgency of this moment in time. The Indications' 2016 self-titled debut was the product of friends who met as students at Indiana University in Bloomington, In., recorded for $452.11, including a case of beer. American Love Call, the band's sophomore LP is instead the record the Indications dreamed of making, fleshed out with strings, backing vocals, and a newfound confidence in songwriting. Blending a slew of influences from years spent crate-digging, guitarist Blake Rhein says the Indications approach songs in the same way hip-hop producers do, as likely to pull inspiration from `70s folk-rock or classic R&B as they are Nas' Illmatic. "Did I expect to do this shit once I got out of college? Hell no," Jones relays, laughing. "Totally not. But this is what God is telling me to do - move and groove. So I'm gonna stay in my lane."

1973 saw the release of Herbie Hancock's influential jazz-fusion record Head Hunters, which not only dramatically re-arranged the landscape of modern jazz music, but proved to be a major commercial success for the prolific keyboardist/piano player. Anticipation was running high for the follow-up, which was released the year after, following a dramatically stripped down Japan-only release, Dedication.Thrust was released in 1974, featuring much of the same lineup behind Head Hunters, save for percussionist Mike Clark replacing Harvey Mason on drums. Critical opinions were markedly positive for Thrust, which was deemed an incredibly worthyfollow-up to the game-changing Head Hunters. Like its predecessor it featured four tracks of quality jazz-funk performed across nearly 40 minutes. Hancock's backing band the Headhunters sound as drum-tight as before, with the addition of Mike Clark adding a distinctly groovier sound to the proceedings, and Hancock's newly acquired ARP Synthesizer adding a glossy sheen. (And an early look at the techno experimentation he'd undertake in the 1980s.) Regularly overshadowed by Head Hunters, but not one to sleep on, whether a fan of Herbie Hancock or jazz in general, fusion or otherwise.

Elvin Jones' connection to the John ColtraneQuartet is inescapable, but it shouldn't be the onlydefining feature of his career. After all, Jonesexpanded the role of the jazz percussionist in thepost-bop era, and helped bridge the gap to moreavant-garde styles of drumming through hisvirtuostic style. This style continued to developand grow after departing the Coltrane Quartet(Due to displeasure over Coltrane's addition of asecond drummer) and going solo.Before his departure however, Jones was alreadya prolific figure in his own rite, having alreadyperformed with the likes of Miles Davis andCharles Mingus long before even connecting withJohn Coltrane. He also regularly collaborated withbassist and fellow Coltrane Quintet compatriotJimmy Garrison, forming the recording collectivethe Elvin Jones/Jimmy Garrison Sextet, recordingseveral albums together. 1964's Illumination! wasone such album, which featured the rhythmsection pair joined by McCoy Tyner, also from theColtrane Quintet, on piano, as well as strongsession turns from Sonny Simmons(Alto Sax/English Horn), Charles Davis(Bari Sax), and William Lasha (Clarinet/Flute).A highly sought after set of advanced hardbop, featuring some of Jones' most powerfulpercussion chops.

As prolific and innovative an artist Prince Rogers Nelson(Best known by his eponymous stage name Prince) wasin his lifetime, he was also notorious for refusing to playnicely with his record label. Especially Warner BrothersRecords, his longtime label since his debut. Tensionsbetween the pop singer/songwriter came to a head duringthe 90s, when after a series of slights related to rightsissues and album releases, Prince went to great lengthsto attempt to get out of his contract with the major label.He went about this by releasing collections of unreleasedmaterial and B-sides under the Prince moniker, whilerecording new songs as the unpronounceable "LoveSymbol", which would often be simplified to "The Artist(Formerly Known As Prince)" in the media. Thesesongs in turn would be released on NPG Records, anindependent label formed after the shuttering of PaisleyPark Records by Warner Brothers, and would release therest of Prince's new material up to his passing in 2016.One of NPG Records' first releases was a compilationshowcasing things to come from the upstart imprint, titled1-800-NEW-FUNK. In addition to new materialfrom Prince, it featured new and unreleased tracks fromfunk/soul veterans like George Clinton and MavisStaples, as well as up-and-comers like Mayte Garcia andNona Gaye, as well as tracks from Prince side-projectslike Madhouse, and his backing band The New PowerGeneration. While the compilation was not a majorcommercial success on par with Prince's solo works, thealbum has over time become a must-have for recordcollectors, and is an indelible part of any Princecompletist's catalogue.

A welcome branching out into the reggae universe, Rocafort is proud to present The Circle of Confusion featuring the legendary sweet falsetto voice of Cornel Campbell. Lausanne Switzerland meets Kingston Jamaica in this heartfelt, stripped back, feel-good homage to the late 70s roots reggaestyle.The Circle of Confusion are a Swiss production duo: Seb.K (Shakedown productions) and Phil'eas (Black Diamond Sound). Diehard reggae fans, they dared to contact their favourite Jamaican singer and got a result with Campbell delivering the lyrics on the spot, written on the day of Nelson Mandela' death. There's depth and feeling in this wonderfully lilting, plaintive song, typical of Campbell's social consciousness and beautiful soul. Hard to believe it was all strung together in a shiny, clean Swiss studio when the sound is so simply warm and Jamaican. Beautiful run on the keyboards by Jah Lou.If you were moved by the Rhythm and Sound album of 2001, you will not be disappointed with this splendid roots collaboration. We can only hope there's more to come.

Over uptempo hip-hop flavoured beats reminiscent of early 90s golden era hip hop, chopped and looped riffs from sax man Ben Castle give way to rolling melodies and rapid fire solos.On the flip, unstoppable gospel powerhouse Izo FitzRoy is here, flexing her soulful tones over one of the most elastic basslines ever pressed on wax. Underpinned by signature laidback drums that groove like a classic rhythm section of yesteryear, tasteful guitars and chiming electric piano weave their way between Izo's lyrics and, bingo! That's 'A Little Blahzay' right there! Always keen to give the DJs a bonus, the good doctor even squeezes some 'Canvas Beats' onto the 7" for good measure.

Names You Can Trust presents the second installment of Rueda de Bullerengue, a collaborative series with NY-based Bullerengue collective, Bulla En El Barrio. Named after the group's ongoing monthly performance and workshop in Brooklyn, Bulla's collaborative spirit and dedication to the tradition of los bailes cantados has made an indelible mark on the bubbling tropical music scene of New York City, and in turn, found their way into the crates and sets of DJs and vinyl aficionados via their first 7-inch release on NYCT in 2017. Since those initial moves, Bulla has continued to grow and add working members while maintaining a philosophy and connection grounded in the traditions of their Colombian origins. They've studied and collaborated with elders and legends like Emilson Pacheco and Darlina Sáenz, and this past year embarked on a recording with Barranquilla-based collective Tonada Baile Cantado — the focus of this edition's recording and release.Considered one of the premier groups advancing the tradition of Bullerengue within Colombia, this incredibly talented group of young musicians are a rarity for their skill and age. In a region where there are ongoing festivals celebrating the tradition of Bullerengue that still command massive audiences and performers, Tonada is a true representative of what can happen when such an amazing tradition is passed forward to an eager next generation. Produced by Bulla members Camilo Rodriguez and Diana Herrera (aka Carolina Oliveras) in between their time smashing stages across the U.S. for Combo Chimbita, this is a carefully nurtured and powerful bridge to the beloved traditions of Colombia's Caribe region.Without further ado, here lies Volume 2 of Rueda de Bullerengue, featuring Tonada Baile Cantado, a new generation of traditional Colombian dance music transmitted directly from Barranquilla — Four dance floor crashers in the styles of fandango and chalupa, ready-made for your 45 spins in the inimitable style of Names You Can Trust.

Matasuna Records is delighted to present another highlight with its new release: the first ever official reissue of the 7inch "Viajecito/Too Late" by Peruvian band "Black Sugar". Originally released in 1971, the single is one of the most in demand Latin American 45s. So it isn't surprising that nowadays 7inches in good condition are extremly rare and only available for several hundred dollars.Both tracks were completely remastered in Lima (Peru) and now sound better than ever!In 1970 Black Sugar emerged from the band "Los Far-Fen", which was founded 1969 by guitarist Victor "Coco" Salazar and keyboardist Miguel "Chino" Figueroa. The new musical director of the label Sono Radio, Jamie Delgado, signed them in 1970 and gave the band its name "Black Sugar". He also helped them to record & release their first self-titled LP in 1971. Black Sugar was formed by some of Peru's best young musicians of their day and achieved great success in South America.Viajecito opens the single and surprises with his varied composition: guitar riffs meet strange vocal/animal sounds and create a psychedelic atmosphere. With introduction of the bassline, the piano and the rhythm section, the track moves away from this mood. When the horns start to play and the vocals appear, the track gets another turn and takes the listener on "a little journey". Excellent Latin Jazz track that makes you want more!Too Late is one of the biggest tunes of the Northern Soul scene and also one of the most sought after vinyl. Listening to it reveals why: the piano and the brass create an extremely intoxicating melody - perfectly accompanied by a great rhythm combo, which is pushed further and further by the singer. For sure one of the best Latinsoul songs and a bomb for every dancefloor!

Revolutionary, spiritual jazz bandleader, drummer, and activist from Houston. This is the definitive box set of his four classic albums with his Lightmen band, each mastered from the original tapes, expanded with bonus tracks and alternate mixes.Bubbha Thomas had toured America with R&B revues, served as a session musician for Peacock and Back Beat Records, and played straight ahead jazz with legends before the political and social upheaval of the late 1960s led him to a path first charted by Coltrane. His first set of self-issued albums predated the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and were a harbinger of best of the 1970s jazz underground. Over the course of the decade, he contributed to a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo that is just beginning to be understood. Each album contains 2LPs and comes with a download card for WAV files, and footage of live performances included. Booklet detailing Thomas and his band’s remarkable trajectory also included in the set. Album details below.FREE AS YOU WANNA BE (NA5150)Free As You Wanna Be predates the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and is a harbinger of best of the 1970s jazz underground, a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo. Presented in both stereo and previously unissued mono mixesFANCY PANTS (NA5156)Fancy Pants is Thomas’s second LP with his Lightmen band and is a more introspective, meditative affair; it stands alongside the best of the early 1970s jazz underground, from Phil Cohran to Phil Ranelin toSun Ra. Presented in both stereo and previously unissued, extended mono mixes.ENERGY CONTROL CENTER (NA5157)Energy Control Center, Thomas’s third LP with his Lightmen band is his masterpiece: deep-set, maverick jazz that smolders in the embers of a cultural revolution. This is a highpoint amongst the best of the 1970s, and this version of the album contains second disc with bonus tracks: unreleased alternate takes, including two versions of the Spiritual Jazz classic “All Praises To Allah,” and the two singles Thomas produced for poet and activist Thomas Meloncon.COUNTRY FRIED CHICKEN (NA5158) Country Fried Chicken, Thomas’s fourth LP with his Lightmen band and the last of his classic period, is his most accessible, a mixture of funk and spiritual jazz. This version of the album contains a second discwith bonus tracks: alternate, synth-lead mixes of songs from his first two LPs as well as rare and unreleased disco and boogie tracks.

Cochemea’s electro-sax leads anensemble of percussive giants (members of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Antibalas) on apsychedelic, spiritual journey, exploring his ancestral roots through melody and rhythm. Asa body of work, it is an acknowledgement of oneness and harmony with all forms of life:people, animals, insects, plants, trees, and even rocks, rivers, mountains and valleys. Itcelebrates the sublime beauty of existence and beginnings of such. Some of the tunes weredrawn from memory, imagined from a time and place Cochemea has never been, such as“Sonora" (the home of his Yaqui ancestors), and “Mescalero" (an Apache tribe from theSouth Central region of Mexico - ancestors of his great-grandmother). Others were bornfrom the Musical impression of ritual, like “Mitote" (an ancient, secular round dance of theAztecs and other tribes of the Sierra Madre Occidental - which in certain cultures can beassociated with Peyote ritual). The track “Asatoma" (The Asatome) is an ancient prayer fromIndia. In Sanskrit, it prays for guidance to grow from darkness to light, to distinguish thereal from the unreal, and to be guided from death of the physical to the immortality of theSpirit. It is a celebration of life.The musicians on the record also bring a piece of themselves and their heritage, creating acultural cornucopia of sonic expression that allows Cochemea's vision and spirituality toflourish. All My Relations, in a sense, is a musical prayer to the world to help recognize ourone true source, our shared identity. We are one.

The list of his musical collaborations is extensive and includes renowned artists and acts from the likes of Manu Dibango, Fela Kuti, Jack Bruce, Mike Watt and Les Claypool. Bernie Worrell’s list of achievements is equally impressive: highlights include his induction in as a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and receiving an honorary Doctor of Music Degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in 2016.Next to his important body of work with Parliament/Funkadelic Bernie Worrell released several amazing solo albums that include classics such as ‘All The Woo In The World’ (1978), ‘Funk Of Ages’ (1990) and of course the one we are presenting you today: ‘‘Pieces Of Woo: The Other Side’” (1993)‘Pieces Of Woo: The Other Side’ was the iconic keyboardist’s fourth solo album, recorded and released in 1993 the album has an all star line up that includes several renowned artists from the likes of Fred Wesley, Buckethead, Bill Laswell and Umar Bin Hassan (The Last Poets).‘The Other Side’ is absolutely uncategorizable.

Big Band gem from Bristol, recorded in 1972. Here is the story behind it from the labels website, you should read: "As a beat digger/record collector, to stumble across an epic unheard early 70s monster jazz funk fusion track is the stuff of legend. For the creator to originate in your home town, is rarer still. For that musician to still be playing with his big band every Saturday in the pub round the corner, was almost more than I could handle…It was during one of my regular beat digging missions that I acquired an original copy of the Bobby Deans album.I was aware of the THOR label already and had previously met the charismatic label owner, Glasgow music scene promoter and musician Harry Margolis. I knew immediately that to find a record on this label could potentially be very special. The seller remembered the day he got his copy of the album…. He and a friend were a fan of Bobby and his band and had gone to one of their Glasgow gigs. They were disappointed to discover that the eagerly anticipated album was not for sale having been informed at a earlier gig that there would be a forthcoming album launch at the next. Determined to get their hands on a copy, the pair stayed out in Glasgow's city centre all night and first thing in the morning they headed straight to THOR Studios in St Vincent Street, knocked on the door and waited. Finally after much pleading, they left, with two copies of the album in their possession. It is entirely possible that the album was never formally released and that these may have been two of only a handful to ever make it out of the Studio.On skipping through the tracks at home, my hand stopped on a track on side A- titled Ho Ho Here He Comes. Even on hearing the first 8 bars I was blown away. I loved it immediately. I started to look for samples throughout the rest of the album and found some on another track. Later turning out to be my remix of Elephants Graveyard. In my mind, I knew “Ho! Ho!” deserved to be released as a track in its own right. I began to search for information on the artist and was amazed to find that the Bobby Deans Big Band currently played weekly to a loyal following at a local pub. I managed to get a hold of Bobbys number and called him explaining that I had found his old record and wanted to re-release one of the tracks & my version of another. I sent him a CD with Ho! Ho! and my remix. He recalled the session, recollecting that the drummer from Alex Harvey band had played session drums on Ho!, Ho! and that his father Mickey Deans, prolific UK jazz saxophonist had played along side him on Elephants Graveyard.Invited by Bobby, I went along to the Partick Tavern and met Bobby for the first time. It was amazing to see the full ensemble including brass section with Bobby on Sax squeezed into the pub in Glasgow's west end. I could tell he was a character from our phone calls and was not disappointed when we met for the first time. During the coming months seeking support and the right label for the release I came across the B-Line RecordingsStrictly Business EP and instantly knew that a synergy existed. Simon shared my love for the track and the story and an agreement was reached to carry out a limited run of 250 copies only, with my remix of “Elephants Graveyard” featured on the B-Side.Only recently before this record was re-released, I happened to be listening to Herbie Hancocks album Fat Alberts Rotunda, and reading along with the back cover titles while playing the record, it finally clicked that “Ho!, Ho! Is a typo on the original THOR release & what I've been listening to on Bobby's album was actually a cover version of Hancocks Oh!, Oh! Here He Comes. Not to take anything away from Mr Hancock, but Bobby & the bands version is an energetic, up-tempo approach, big & brassy in it's nature and for me, remains the best version I've heard.On 10th Feb 2016 I went to Bobby's house to pass on the good news that the record was going to be pressed. His partner Janette informed me that sadly, that very morning, Bobby had lost his fight to lung cancer. He was 76 and played his last gig only a month before.Jazz runs deep in the roots of the Deans family, his younger brother Michael is a successful Jazz musician in his own right and both brothers inherited their love of music from their father Mickey. I hope that it may be of some comfort to his family to know that Bobby's work with this spectacular bands musicianship will continue to reach a new audience even after his passing. I never get tired of listening to Bobby & the bands work, so hope you will also share in the enjoyment, when you play this record.The words below are an extract in Bobby's own words from the original LP sleeve notes:“This record is a product of the hard work and imagination of a handful of creative Glasgow individuals. The tracks that you will hear on this record were recorded over a period of two weeks in November 1972. It was an operation planned with the precision of an army campaign and like all good armies, it retired to the local tavern to replenish its strength for the coming fight.I could go on talking about the various things that happened on this recording, but the only way that I can describe the finished product is for everybody to have these twelve tracks as a personal album of my band.Yours SincerelyBobby Deans

Atuy So Kata is the closing track of Umeko Ando’s Ihunke album. It is a poetic dedication to the surface of the ocean. Her voice is especially mesmerizing in this traditional Ainu song, and it perfectly captures all the brittle and enchanting qualities of her vocal art. Patric Catani (aka Candie Hank, aka Ill Till) is an artist of many faces who has already appeared on a couple of Pingipung releases. He is widely known for his recent soundtracks for video games such as Minton and Pit People. His playful remix approaches the Ainu folk song with an offbeat punch, spacing out on delays and dub textures. "Many white waves on the ocean They look like rabbits jumping." After the Iuta Upopo 7’’ (Pingipung 058, 2017), the Ihunke re-issue 2LP (Pingipung 060, 2018) and the Ihunke Remixes 12’’ (Pingipung 062, 2018), this single is latest step in Pingipung’s explorations of Umeko Ando’s legacy and contemporary interpretations of her unique music.

Dark, melancholy, aggressive, raging and subdued; “An Ill Considered Christmas” captures these essential festive feelings, weaving thorny, angular, unforgiving structures and stretching the helpless, protesting forms of infamous Christmas songs over them, creating a unique collection of Yuletide Chimeras. Recorded live in a day, with each musician extremely close to each other in the room, you can really feel the intensity of communication between them and the cohesive sound this proximity elicits. We hope this albums helps you have an appropriately Ill Considered Christmas.

ll Considered’s 5th and 6th albums were recorded just over a year after their first. One studio album (Ill Considered 3) plus two live albums completed the vinyl output in their prolific first year. Albums 5 and 6 clearly demonstrate the development of the band’s sound and the interaction between the players. Taking only a few sketches of tunes into the studio over a two day period, the albums are still largely fully improvised. Some concise and well-defined hooky groove-based melodies are here, nestled beside rich, dark textural pieces that draw the listener in and propel them through this unique musical journey. The arrangements of bass, drums, percussion and sax are joined by bass clarinet, outrageously manipulated, yet emotive and at times searing electric guitar, an Indian shruti drone box, and powerful middle eastern percussion opening up new opportunities for interaction between Emre and Satin. The albums are beautifully recorded, mixed and mastered by Emre and each tune has its own sonic identity. There is however a progression between the tracks that ties both albums together in an intuitive journey, so that when you reach the end of album 6, you want to return to the start of album 5 again.
