Review: There have been plenty of retrospectives on the absolutely essential work of Sun Ra and his Arkestra over the years, but trust Strut to go that bit deeper when they elected to focus on the Sun God himself. As the extensive title suggests, this collection places the focus on proceedings in the hands of Marshall Allen, the longest serving member of the Arkestra and current band leader. The results mean In The Orbit Of Ra feels a whole lot more personal and indepth, with over 25 years worth of Sun Ra-lead music documented. It's all been fully remastered from the original tapes and is pretty much the most conclusive introduction to the work of this pioneer one could hope for.

  1. We Be All Africans
  2. Epiphany

  4. Rhapsody In Berlin
  5. Clarion Call
  6. Traponga
  7. Whispering Tenderness
Review: Those turned on by Spiritual Jazz should already be aware of West Coast combo Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids. They've been playing and recording together since the 1970s, though We Be All Africans is only their sixth full-length outing. Predictably, it's a fine set, effortlessly fusing their spiritual roots with elements of jazz-funk, soul and, of course, Afro-jazz. Highlights are plentiful, from the swinging, Tony Allen style rhythms, swirling vocals and punchy horns of "Rhapsody In Berlin", and the clarinet-sporting sweetness of the brilliantly percussive "Epiphany", to the stretched-out drum workout "Traponga", which sounds like the work of three drummers and a whole troupe of percussionists.

  10. Naked Lunch - "Slipping Again"
  11. SPK - "Metal Dance"
Review: Having recently mined the post-punk/new wave vaults of Factory Records' 12" releases, it's little surprise that the latest Strut Records release shines more light on the clanking, far-sighted world of the 1980s' most revolutionary genres - namely industrial, post-punk and EBM. This time, former Output boss, Playgroup man and all-round hipster Trevor Jackson is at the helm. His two-disc selection touches on many different strands, from bleak synthesizer jams and crunchy punk-funk to twisted industrial disco, mutant electrofunk (Nitzer Ebb's "I've Lost Control") and almighty percussive workouts (SPK's thrilling "Metal Dance"). Highly recommended.

Review: Given the sheer amount of material released by spiritual jazz maestro Sun Ra over the years - 120-odd albums and counting - it can be hard for new listeners to know where to start. Gilles Peterson and Strut have come up with an answer: a two-disc Sun Ra primer, which casts a critical eye over his whole career in order to gather together some stone cold aural gold. Peterson has long been a Sun Ra obsessive, and does a superb job in representing the different sides of his career. Check, for example, the doo-wop sweetness of "Dreaming" (a 1955 collaboration with The Cosmic Rays), the African influenced weirdness of "Adventure Equation", and the outer-space brilliance of "Cluster of Galaxies".

Review: Solidarity marks a welcome return to the studio from Canadian six-piece The Souljazz Orchestra following an extended break for touring. As with previous outings, the 10 tracks bristle with summery intent, mixing heavy bottom end pressure with piercing horns and authentically fuzzy vocals. The production makes it sound authentically 1970s, as if it was recorded in some cheap West African studio. Given the band's love of Afro-funk and Afro-beat - as well as the sort of psychedelic afro-jazz that so enthuses record collectors - it's a wise move. If anything, it makes the album even more desirable; certainly, there's an authenticity to The Souljazz Orchestra that can't be denied.

Review: Few Ghanaian musicians are quite as celebrated as Pat Thomas, who recorded and released his first album way back in 1974. Understandably, his releases have become less frequent with the passing of time, and Pat Thomas & The Kwashibu Area Band is his first studio album since 1991. The supporting cast list is, unsurprisingly, impressive, and includes Fela Kuti collaborator Tony Allen, and legendary highlife guitarist Ebo Taylor. Musically, there are few surprises, just a killer collection of bright, breezy, sweet and addictive highlife and Afrobeat jams, all blessed with Thomas' wonderful voice, Taylor's glistening guitars, and some seriously punchy horns. It's a real treat for fans of African music.

Review: It would be fair to say that drummer Julian Bahula holds a unique place in the history of South Africa's anti-apartheid movement. From the 1960s onwards, the acclaimed jazzman's afro-jazz fusion bands - Malombo Jazz Makers, Jabula and Jazz Afrika amongst them - were amongst the most vociferous supporters of the ANC's fight against white supremacy. This excellent retrospective from Strut - a kind of off-shoot of their pioneering Next Stop Soweto series - tells the full story of Bahula's extraordinary career. It's packed with openly political jazz, inspired spoken word cuts and thrilling drum workouts (see Jabula's "Let Us Be Free"), all of which brilliantly join the dots between various styles of US jazz and indigenous African music.

Review: Given the increased interest in indigenous tropical sounds of late, it's unsurprising to see Strut Records paying tribute to a lesser-known variant of the style. For the uninitiated, Sega Music is a style of goodtime dance music first developed in Mauritius. Soul Souk Sega focuses on the genre's most vibrant period during the 1970s, when electric instrumentation and early synthesizer sounds were adding greater vibrancy to the style's African and European influences. It makes for hugely enjoyable listening, with creole vocals rising over humid grooves and delightfully lo-fi production. As usual with Strut, the accompanying, in-depth sleeve notes tell the story of the style in delicious detail.

Review: Strut's archival remit remains as international as ever, with their latest compilation squaring the focus on late '70s Hawaii on the delightful Aloha Got Soul: Soul AOR & Disco In Hawai'i 1979-1985. Across the backdrop of societal change on the island (statehood into America in '59 and the Vietnam War) Hawaiian youth found inspiration in the music of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and later Earth Wind & Fire leading to a truly vibrant scene by the mid-'70s. It's after this where Strut pick up the story, bringing together a glorious 16 track collection that spans the genres and suggests Hawaii to be a most fertile location for music during this era.

Review: The Strut label have done it again, people. Known for digging up some of the most obscure and interesting material from around the globe - both musically and culturally - the label sits alongside the likes of London's Honest Jon's Records in its ability to pull out unheard material from thin air. This time, we have a compilation of Mauritius' Sega music, a local kind of blues music that has its roots in traditional African music started by slaves of plantations who were looking for greener pastures. The 60's saw the explosion of the genre, and throughout this collection of tunes, you'll hear influences from just about any genre across the soul spectrum. There's psych, Afro beat, Ethiopian funk, and Fela-style chanting. It's a truly remarkable release, and it comes warmly recommended. This could well be up there in the top ten for 2016's world charts... and it's only February!

Review: By now a well-oiled machine, the Strut compilation programme switches attentions to the Caribbean and Haiti in particular with Haiti Direct: Big Band, Mini Jazz & Twoubadou Sounds 1960-1978. The double LP package (which comes with 2CD edition too) was compiled by Hugo Mendez, the Paris-based DJ whose work as part of the Sofrito collective ensures him the perfect position to curate this release in a manner few can match. This impressive collection of tracks documents the country's overlooked musical legacy from the '60s and '70s , going beyond Ra-ra and voodoo stereotypes to trace the development of a unique sound that echoed across the Caribbean. The exploratory package also includes in-depth liner notes and interviews with some of the musicians of the era, with part of the release's profits donated to the Partners In Health charity.

Review: Despite the upsurge in interest in tropical rhythms and unlikely musical styles, Haiti Direct is arguably the first detailed exploration of the hitherto overlooked Haitian music scene. Compiled by tropical obsessive Hugo Mendez (he of Sofrito fame), Haiti Direct traces the development of the country's native music scene from 1960 to 1978. Sitting somewhere between calypso, Cuban rhythms, expansive Latin jazz and tropical blues (see DJet-X's brilliant "Jive Turkey"), Haitian music inhabits a space all of its own, soaking up influences and repackaging them in new and unusual styles. It makes for a thrilling and enjoyable listen, making Haiti Direct a near essential purchase for curious listeners and tropical addicts alike.
