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!

Barbara Howard’s On The Rise is more than just another rare soul LP. It’s a love story. It’s a dream. It was an attempt to break through. And although Barbara certainly never became a star, one song did become a staple in rare soul and funk DJ sets, keeping interest in Barbara Howard just under the surface. And as fate would have it in 2016, a sealed copy of the LP would find its way into Plaid Room Records in Loveland, OH and kick start the revival of her story and her music.In 1968, as an outgrowth of a community movement and talent search program called “Operation Step-Up”, Steven Reece wanted to take his community movement to the next level. This is when the idea of founding an independent label came to mind. The idea was to self-produce quality records and through successful sales attempt to land major label distribution. Steve identified Barbara Howard as the talent and set to producing her record. The idea was to produce an LP with a variety of tracks that could be marketed to a variety of radio formats and markets (gospel, pop, soul, jazz, etc.).And while the record fizzled shortly after its release, Steve and Barbara ended up getting married shortly afterwards making this possibly the most romantic production of a record is soul music history.

He was an American keyboardist, arranger & composer best known as a founding member of Parliament/Funkadelic and for his work with Talking Heads. 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. Modal strains of jazz, avant-noise, poetry readings, heavy funk overtones and Hammond organ-drenched experimental atmospheres give a lengthy and unique flavor to each song. The result of this visionary approach is downright fascinating & Worrell's attitudes go way beyond the expected boundaries flanking free-form jazz and funk…he transforms these recordings into a jaw-dropping, delightful adventure of unexplored and unexpected sonic realms.Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents (FOR THE FIRST TIME ON VINYL) Bernie Worrell’s 1993 album ‘Pieces of Woo: The Other Side’. Available as a deluxe 2XLP set with silkscreened D-Side, limited to 500 copies worldwide.

Bill Brown and Al Hall jr met around 1971, they were both in south central L.A and shared the same apartment building, also in the same building was Doug Carn and brownstone singer billy Wilson. These studio sessions were don't at Paramount studios Hollywood where Al Hall jr was working for producer Art Smith a&c music. The main distributor for A&C was Accent records. So the Soul Injections very first single "Stay off the moon" was released via Accent, as was Bill Browns "Bip Bam" The group wasn't that pleased with how Accent handle the releases so Bill took it upon himself to set up his own label called Brownstone records. Many musicians were called in for studio sessions these included Doug Carn, organ; Kirk Lightsey, keyboards; Mel Bolton, guitars; Mel Lee, drums; Al Hall jr (trombones), Willaim 'Bill'Henderson strings. The label was met with some confrontation from other Hollywood labels and many of the Brownstone releases were told not to hit the shops by Mafia run labels. Later around 1975 Brownstone released a track by Everyday people feat Alexis "world full of people"....A now cult soul 45 ....This is one of two versions to come out of "Fool-ology". The story goes Bill Brown had lost his voice for the sessions and called in a good friend Billy Wilson to take over the responsibility. He done a great job.

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!

Nobody could have suspected the path that Clarence Henry Reidwould take during the 1960s. During this time he worked as asinger/songwriter and producer for the likes of KC & TheSunshine Band, Bobby Byrd, Gwen McCrae, and various others.He would also release his own compositions, including the deepsoul classic "Nobody But You Babe", which would become a samplingfavorite of KRS-One, Erykah Badu, DMX, and more. ThoughReid maintained a reputation as a consummate professionalamong the romantic soul crowd, outside of his day-job he turneda complete 180, writing and performing humorous, deliberatelyraunchy and sexually-explicit parodies of songs. These parodieswould be relegated strictly to friends at parties, and wouldn't seea wide audience until the 1970s hit.In 1971 Reid would gather a collection of studio musicians,including famed R&B sidemen Timmy Thomas & Benny Latimoreon keys, and Little Beaver on guitar, to finally commit theseparodies to wax. In order to protect his identity as a songwriterReid took on the stage name Blowfly, and dressed as a comicbook super villain for live performances and photos. From therehe would release numerous studio albums of similarly crudeparodies throughout the 70s and 80s, which were enormouslypopular as party records. These records would also go on tobecome a wealth of sampling fodder for artists like Jurassic 5, ThePharcyde, DJ Shadow, Eazy-E, and many more, as well as leadReid to collaborate with artists as varied as soul contemporaryKing Coleman, to former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, toganja-centric rapper Afroman.1978 saw the release of Blowfly's Zodiac Party, a loosely definedconcept album which framed Reid's explicit renditions around thetheme of the Greek Zodiac symbols. Reid had already coveredthis topic earlier on the similarly titled Blowfly Zodiac, but ZodiacParty differentiates itself from its lack of parodies, instead placingReid in the center of a raucous shindig with his backing band,schmoozing effortlessly with excited partygoers, curious to knowtheir signs. It's a singularly surreal entry in the parodist's catalog,but a no less entertaining 70s party record.

The resultingalbum was simply titled Disco, and featured significantlyincreased production values, a more polished sound, and theaddition of string sections and backing choruses.

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

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.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
I feel a little bit frustrated when I try to listen with revisionist ears to the Mehldau & Rossy Trio’s When I Fall In Love. And that is because Brad Mehldau, at 23, before many people knew who he was, is not unrecognizable. Pianistically, he’s pretty much there—all that remains are refinements and extremes. I think that I’m going to get the unfamiliar jolt of his averageness; instead I get the familiar jolt of his excellence. The drummer Jorge Rossy would evolve in a more thorough and categorical way, toward a kind of off-handed, casual complexity. The mechanics of the connection between Mehldau and Rossy would evolve as well. The trio on this album, recorded at La Cova del Drac in Barcelona in October, 1993, includes the bassist Mario Rossy—the drummer’s brother—who can also be heard on Fresh Sound’s two volumes of New York-Barcelona Crossing, the quartet recordings from Barcelona made earlier that year. By the time of When I Fall In Love, Mehldau was playing in fast, flowing, articulated strokes in the standard “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was,” arranged in five-four; Charlie Parker’s “Anthropology,” his own “At A Loss,” and “Countdown,” the John Coltrane étude, in which you hear him developing the the idea of two hands in separate rhythms: three in one, four in another. (He would do much more with that idea, and he would keep “Countdown” in his repertoire, revisiting it three more times on record.) In “Convalescent,” another early Mehldau original, a threnody with a pedalpoint bass, he seems to gesture beyond jazz’s conventions. He hadn’t written much of his own yet, but he is already articulating a way slightly apart from the emotion and design of the jazz tradition as played by most of his peers—a kind of careful, counterintuitive, semi-baroque romanticism. It is in the two ballads here—“I Fall In Love Too Easily” and the title track, both with unaccompanied introductions and codas—where Mehldau really lets you take the measure of him, and makes you consider his context. I hear a little grandiosity in it, but of a much lesser kind than you would come to hear among his orbit in New York at that time. But Mehldau is doing something a little different on this album, and particularly on “When I Fall In Love.” He isn’t playing for the scream. He’s using most of the instrument, but with a strict sense of pacing and design—notice his two quotations of “Never Let Me Go” at the end of the opening and closing themes with the trio—and with a generous amount of space. (Young players tend not to be comfortable playing at tempos this slow. ) He abandons and then resumes his relationship to the pulse, and he keeps calm. He’s grounded; he’s staying where he is. He isn’t chasing after the song. He’s making it come to him. —Ben Ratliff, 2018

Brooklyn's Breakdown Brass are made up of some of the hottest musicians in the NY area. Their cover of Dr. Dre's "Next Episode" is a monster that makes dancefloors go bonkers. Supported by a who’s who of DJs record is a masterful mix of Afro‐funk meets Balkan brass, and with a dash of hip‐hop simmering in the flow. The B‐side "Monmouth" is a driving original with razor sharp horns and a rumbling sousaphone bassline. Guaranteed to get bodies moving and to get dancefloors sweaty, consider this 45 to be fresh ammunition for your record box. Originally issued on Kept Records in 2015, the run quickly sold out and became an instant crate digger classic that now regularly re-sells for upwards of three figures if you are lucky to find someone willing to part ways with it.

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.

a sexy und HHV präsentieren das sagenhafte Erfolgsalbum "Tatortreiniger Soundtracks" von Carsten Erobique Meyer in einer zweiten - bei uns exklusiv erhältlichen - Farbversion. Diese ist farblich an das Outfit des Tatortreinigers angelehnt. Alle anderen Versionen- bis auf wenige schwarze Scheiben - sind ausverkauft. Limitiert auf 500 Stück. Danach wird es keine weitere Farbversion geben. Ein äußerst wichtiger Tatort, der in der brillanten Serie „Der Tatortreiniger“ aber nie gezeigt oder gar gereinigt wird, befindet sich im traditionsreichen, legendären Hamburger Karolinenviertel. Hier, fast unter dem Dach eines mächtigen, typisch hanseatischen Klinkerbaus, befindet sich Carsten Meyers Zone. Oder wie soll man diesen Ort sonst nennen? Studio? Atelier? Werkstatt? Klanglabor? Wie auch immer man seinen Puff bezeichnen will, es ist ein besonderer Platz.Alte Synthesizer und Orgeln wohin man blickt. Manche sehen aus wie schlechte Gebisse, mit abgebrochenen Tasten, aber sie röcheln noch. Da ist ein komplett mikrofoniertes Drumset, ein Bass, Gitarren. Kabelsalat schlängelt sich über mehrere Lagen orientaler Teppiche. An die Keyboards sind Stapel von Flohmarktplatten, Singles und LPs, gelehnt, die Bücherregale an den Wänden quellen über, viel Malerei, eigene und fremde Werke, bedeckt die Wände, in St. Petersburger Hängung. Betrachten kann man diese wundervolle Welt aus einem Korbsessel im Stil des Films „Emanuelle“.Hier entstehen quasi das ganze Jahr hindurch, und das schon seit 2011, all die musikalischen Skizzen, Vignetten, Themen, Grooves und Fantasias, die dann irgendwann zu den ausformulierten, musikalischen Stimmungsbildern werden, die im „Tatortreiniger“ zu hören sind. Die ihren Teil dazu beitragen, dass „Der Tatortreiniger“ die wahrscheinlich beste deutsche Fernsehserie der Welt ist - mit Sicherheit, was die Musik betrifft.Es war eine so naheliegende wie zauberhafte Idee, daraus endlich eine Auswahl zusammenzustellen und sie in einer schönen, von Meyer selbst gestalteten Hülle und auf seinem eigenen Label, Asexy, zu veröffentlichen. Die Songs präsentieren sich nun fast ähnlich einem Mixtape, nur halt nicht gemixt, sondern wie früher, ein Song nach dem anderen. Carsten Meyer verkörpert in diesem Fall jede Band. Man kann damit z.B. ins Strandbad gehen oder allein in den Park. Im Verlauf der 20 Stücke hört man eine Menge ganz unterschiedlicher Musiken, aus ganz verschiedenen Pop-Epochen, alle wie aus dem Ärmel geschüttelt. Was für eine magische Teppichreise! Was für ein unterhaltsames Spektakel!Nach der flotten Erkennungsmelodie im Stile einer Sixties-Serie wird es zunächst quasi schwarzweiß: melodramatische Spinett-Barock-Pop, inspiriert vom französischen Film ca. 1965-68, von Komponisten wie Francois De Roubaix und natürlich auch, klar, Henry Mancini.

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.

The second instalment of Dr Rubbefunk's 'My Life At 45' series. 'Canvas Cathedral' on the A-side is a jazzy all-instrumental affair that will have you head-nodding like nobody's business. 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.

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."

Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Eddie Palmieri, at 83 years of age, is performing and producing his best work. Mi Luz Mayor is his second salsa release of 2018, and is a tribute to his late wife, Iraida. (The selections are all songs that she enjoyed). In addition to the usual all star cast of players, Mi Luz Mayor features the great Gilberto Santa Rosa, Herman Olivera, and none other than Carlos Santana. The CD include a 12 page booklet with liner notes and credits in English and Spanish. This work is dedicated to Iraida, my late wife, the love of my life. Here I present to you the music that Iraida and I enjoyed in our youth. I would play this music in our home often, during the Holidays and on special occasions. We would dance to this music, but there were also times where the music spoke for us. Music was the constant force that touched our hearts and would heal any wounds that life sent our way. Ultimately, these songs represent our love story. Selecting each composition and writing new music helped me work through my grief after she passed away in 2014. Because this music is in her honor, everything from start to finish had to be of the highest caliber and I am proud to say that it is just that. If Iraida were here today, I know she would want you to know that life wasn’t always easy. She worked tirelessly and selflessly for the needs of our family - there truly wasn’t anything she didn’t do or wouldn’t have done for us. The career trajectory of a musician is difficult at best and like anyone in this business, there were many ups and downs. And when I was down, she always had an unrelenting drive to see me through my darkest days. I, in turn, did the best I could to be there during hers. She was my anchor, my one foot in reality. She kept me grounded and helped keep me on the right path in hopes that I would reach my highest potential. She was my life. And I was hers. Reliving this music allows me to sit again in her presence, to visit memories of our time together. I share this with you now and hope you will feel a connection to her, to another era and to me. I would also like to acknowledge of the profound respect, admiration and impact both Rene Hernández and Ray Santos have had on my musical life. Their arranging skills show careful study and the diligence I endeavor to carry over into my own arrangements. It is the platform from which I rarely move, where the historical integrity of the Cuban structures are preserved and expounded upon – that is the excitement that drives my creative process. I am also grateful for the contributions and arranging talent of Jose Madera – I truly believe he is an inspiration to the next generation of arrangers. As for the musicians…I am surrounded by Chiefs, each a master of their own instrument. I am incredibly grateful to all the musicians that are on this recording and of course, the special guests, Mr. Carlos Santana, Mr. Gilberto Santa Rosa and “La Voz del Caribe,” Herman Olivera. And a heartfelt thank you to Brian Lynch for the coda input on the new arrangement of Mi Congo. These gentlemen know they all live in my heart and pay no rent. My motto for this CD is “Cuidado!” Eddie Palmieri Written in collaboration with Ileana Palmieri-Campos

Though he was originally from Brooklyn and raised by adoptive parents in rural Kansas, George Alexander Aberle aka eden ahbez, is about as California as they come. He was discovered in the 1940s while working in one of Los Angeles' earliest raw vegetarian restaurants and was known throughout the 50s and 60s for being spotted on the streets of LA in full white robe, sandals, and beard, and legendarily camping underneath the first L in the HOLLYWOOD sign. After writing numerous hits for jazz and pop singers, including the iconic "Nature Boy" made famous by Nat King Cole in 1948, ahbez (who spelled his name with lower case lettering because he deemed only God and Infinity worthy of capitalization) recorded his only long playing record in 1960. A combination of exotica arrangements and beat era poetry, the album sold poorly at the time but has since become regarded as an exotica classic that transcends the trappings of the genre. Absolutely essential LA weirdness from one of the original LA weirdos.

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.

Emotional Rescue is delighted to offer this compilation of music from Elaine Kibaro and her particular coalesce of chanson, folk, balearic and touch of disco, all encased in her strong French and North African roots. The music included here, released between 1979 to 1989, is an expression of her development, of music changes matching growth in life, conveyed through her emotions in song. Opening with the spoken word Introduction from her debut album, "Mirrors" and the folk rock of melodies of Le Reveil from the 1981 follow up, Au Soleil, her early works are characterised by band, orchestra and choirs complimenting her voice as one. This is further heard on the mystical Sorciere, psyche percussion of Secret, the marching Le Guerrier and the inclusion her first "hit" with Aurore, appearing her in all it's extended, off-kilter guitar meets organ form. Exploring sensitivity and desires the compilation matches these earlier folk and world inspired songs with her move towards electronic production that accompanied a return some 4 years later, adding balearic and even pop dance found on 1985's Le Long De Fleuve Amour and the following 1989 opus, in Kiroel. L'Amour Pour Bouclier and Ne Doute Pas lift her music higher towards lovers' heights, with word, melody, and rhythm giving the desire to dance and be free, while her continuing exploration of chanson and spoken word takes on new meanings via the new wave meets estoric Douleur, while the emotionally charged soundscape of Kiroel brings balance. Inspired by the purity of song, Kibaro's music's has a timeless essence to behold; a voice and words found through life experience - beauty, discovery, nature and dreams. A love and hope in music, her quest for the infinite potential in song.

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.

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.

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.
