  1. All I Do (Ryuhei The Man 45 edit vocal) (4:05)
  2. All I Do (Ryuhei The Man 45 edit instrumental) (4:05)
Review: Japanese live outfit, A Hundred Birds has a thing for creating classic covers. Over the course of their career, they've recorded countless covers, including organic, string-laden interpretations of techno scene staples such as "Blackwater" (originally recorded by Octave 8) and "Knights of the Jaguar" (The Aztec Mystic). Last year they offered up another warm and wonderous cover, this time of Stevie Wonder classic "All I Do". Here it gets a new lease of life courtesy of scalpel fiend Ryu The Man, who has delivered tightened-up, floor-friendly vocal and instrumental edits of the warm, rich, soulful and undeniably summery cover version. Both are rather good, though it's the vocal version that will win over dancers.

Kobe Session
  1. Eventide (14:12)
  2. Introduction (4:42)
  3. Happy Gamma Ray (15:13)
Review: The first release from the Axis Audiophile Series. Jeff Mills has formed an electronic jazz fusion band and this 12? is a recording of their recent performance in Kobe during the TodaysArt.JP Festival. Mills manages the decks, drums and percussion and is joined Detroit legend and Underground Resistance stalwart Gerald Mitchell (Los Hermanos/Galaxy 2 Galaxy), keyboardist Yumiko Ohno and bassist Kenji Jino. "Eventide" has the same kind of urban, uplifting soul as anything Kaidi Thatham or Mark de Clive-Lowe have made and isn't bad at all! On the flip "Happy Gamma Ray" features uplifting keys and emotive chords backed by funk bass and one of Mills' unmistakeable 909 drum machine workouts. It really seems that there's no limit to this Motor City legend's creativity which has spanned nearly 30 years and we're excited about this new chapter in the Wizard's sonic universe.

Cat: AHR 007. Rel: 20 May 19
  1. Grapefruits (4:49)
  2. Heart Strings (6:21)
  3. Camomile Samba (6:47)
  4. Go Slow (5:03)
Review: Yadava made a sterling debut appearance last year with the fully realised "It Rains Here" album on Church, and now he's following up that strong start with this equally excellent four tracker for Ad Hoc. The Manchester-based artist leads in with the natural bump and flex of "Grapefruits" and his jazzy chops are plain to hear throughout. "Heart Strings" lets spiritual strings and plenty of reverb shape out a misty mood that it's impossible to resist, while "Camomile Samba" brings a more uptempo feel to his honey-coated production. "Go Slow" finishes the record off on a supremely mellow beat down for those oh-so-sweet chill moments after the party.

Somebody Stole My Thunder
  1. The Yorkshire Film & Television Orchestra - "Somebody Stole My Thunder" (feat Martin Connor) (3:10)
  2. Rachel Modest - "I (Who Have Nothing)" (3:06)
Review: These two tracks first appeared on ATA Records's free download series "Hard Work, No Pay" and have been much requested on vinyl ever since. Well now, here they are, after plenty of high profile plays from the likes of BBC 6 Music's Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show And The Huey Morgan Show. The Yorkshire Film and Television Orchestra is a project from ATA label bosses Neil Innes & Pete Williams as well a multi-instrumentalist and arranger Steve Parry. Here they offer up two different but equally brillaint tunes - some high speed 60s funk with more than a hint of Northern Soul swing on the a-side, and the tender, blue eyed soul of Rachel Modest's 'I (Who Have Nothing).'

  1. I Can't Hurt You Back (3:04)
  2. Who You Going To Run, Where You Going To Hide (2:57)
Review: Amazingly, this 7" from the Young Mods has never even been sold on Discogs, which is surely a mark of just how rare it is. The group was formed when Tommy Henderson came back home to Ohio from a tour of Vietnam. He hooked up with Carl Dronaugh, Raymond Smith and Ronnie Ditto and a host of other backing group members and had huge success with their first ever release. It sent them on a nationwide tour of the States and saw them open for the he O'Jays, Delfonics & Intruders. These two gorgeous soul numbers formed their follow up single. There was only ever more more official release after this, which is all the more astonishing given how good it is.

Turn Off The Lights (limited 7")

  1. Turn Off The Lights (4:13)
  2. Fuel For The Fire (3:53)
Review: Sampled by the likes of Groove Armada and The Herbaliser, "Turn Off The Lights" runs with one of those bass licks you've known forever without realising. Flip for the jazz boogie badness of "Fuel For The Fire". Taken from the same 1975 album, here we find the same vocalist, Linda Logan, sharpening her tongue and getting her scat on with furiously funky results. Hard to find on 45, it's yet another example of AOTN's expert curation prowess.

Cat: OSV 085RED. Rel: 02 Oct 20
  1. Gonna Be A Big Thing (2:22)
  2. Looky Looky (What I Got) (2:36)
Review: Back in the early 1970s, the Yum Yums' 1965 single 'Gonna Be a Big Thing' was a big favourite at legendary Northern Soul club the Wigan Casino. Here it gets a fresh pressing on limited-edition red vinyl courtesy of reissue specialists Outta Sight. The Jerry Ross-produced number is certainly cheery and life-affirming, with infectious female group vocals topping off a horn-heavy, Detroit style soul workout. As it did back in '65, the song is paired with the obscure quartet's insatiable and uplifting version of early Ashford and Simpson number 'Looky, Looky (What I Got)'. This is great, too, though it never quite caught on within the 'Northern' scene like 'Gonna Be a Big Thing'.

As Long As There Is You
Cat: EXUMG 03. Rel: 30 Jan 19
  1. As Long As There Is You (2:48)
  2. It'll Never Be Over For Me (2:57)
Review: It would be fair to say that Timi Yuro's "As Long As There Is You" is a sought-after single. Something of a "holy grail" amongst soul collectors, original copies of the 1969 7" on Liberty Records regularly change hands for upwards of 1,000 quid. Happily, you can now acquire a fresh copy for a fraction of the cost thanks to this facsimile Expansions reissue. Fuzzy, heartfelt, stomping and blessed with wall of sound style production, "As Long As There Is You" is the kind of sad-but-happy track that used to make Northern Soul dancers go weak at the knees. Yuro's Central American influences can be heard loud and clear on "It'll Never Be Over For Me", where Mariachi style trumpet lines and sweeping strings rise above a heavy, bossa-influenced groove.

  2. Dull Slumber (9:24)
  3. Scarborough Fair (7:47)
  4. Rainbow Trout (3:24)
  5. Black Bass (8:03)
Review: Four Units is a Japanese jazz all-star group who played together for this concert in Tokyo in 1969. The recording of it landed on Union Records in the same year and is not able for many reasons, chief amongst which is a fairly incredible cover of 'Scarborough Fair'. It's freeform, expressive and busy in true modal style, with squealing lead synths and feathered cymbals, rolling drums and edgy piano all dancing around the original sound. Other cuts veer into hard bop territory and the whole thing comes to a close in a fine blaze of glory having opened with a pair of extended epics. .

Review: In 2002, the Japanese government recognized bamboo flute maestro Hozan Yamamoto as a "living national treasure". It was in honor of his lengthy career in music, and in particular the way he championed a traditional Japanese instrument even when he was turning his hand to Western music. "Beautiful Bamboo Flute", an album first released in 1971 and almost impossible to find since, is a superb example of this. It sees him deliver haunting, emotional and life-affirming solos over funky jazz, big band and fusion backing tracks that tend towards the fresh and funky. It's an unusual blend, but also an invigorating and exciting one.

Review: As foretold on Kendrick's Untitled two years ago, composer Younge and Tribe Called Quest's Muhammad have been conjuring behind for many years (since 2014 to be precise, on Souls Of Mischief's album There Is Only Now) and Midnight Hour is the incredible result. 20 tracks of ageless Harlem wisdom; the warmth and fusion is rich throughout as we glide from each soulful moment to jazzy highlight with the help of vocalists such as Cee-Lo Green, Luther Vandross and Angela Munoz. Everything about this body of work smacks with class and authenticity; from the sweeping orchestral dynamics of "Gate 54" to the dreamy lo-fi jazz of "Smiling For Me" via the soul jazz vibrancy of "Dans Us Moment D'errance". The night is young...

Review: Earlier this year A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad and renowned composer Adrian Younge's Midnight Hour project revealed the duo's musical depth and dexterity with the likes of Luther Vandross, Bilal and Cee Lo leading from the front. Now comes the instrumental album where the duo's compositions spring to life with a different energy and sense of imagination. You can really hear where their work scoring Luke Cage had an influence on moments such as the big strings and lilting guitars crashing dreamily on "So Amazing" and the subdued introspection of "Don't Keep Me Waiting". A stunning fusion of soul and jazz wrapped up with hazy downtempo sentimentality, this is just as essential as the original vocal version.

Review: Jazz Is Dead is a series that welcomes contemporary musicians to revisit jazz storied of old. This collection challenges Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad to utilise vintage equipment to create new master soundscapes, and they really come correct. Roy Ayers, Gary Bartz, Marcos Valle, Azymuth, Doug Carn, Joao Donato, & Brian Jackson are some of the legends who feature and the album is a free flowing delight that touches on soaring and soulful highs as well as bossa-tinged shufflers and plenty in between.

Review: Brownswood Recordings has high hopes for this debut album from the previously unheralded Yussef Kamaal, which brings together hyped producer Kamaal Williams (AKA Henry Wu) and fast-rising Afrobeat drummer Yussef Dayes. With such talent to draw on, you'd expect Black Focus to be rather good. Happily, it is, with the duo delivering a typically London-centric take on jazz funk. That means that they take as much inspiration from the work of Kaidi Tatham as, say, Herbie Hancock. The key to the album's success - and, yes, it is generally as special as Gilles Peterson suggests - is the fluid combination of Dayes' brilliant drumming and Williams' superb synth solos and effortlessly groovy Rhodes playing.
