Review: American Bobbi Humphrey is one of the most well loved jazz flautists. She turned out plenty of vibrant albums, none less so than this, Fancy Dancer, which was her fifth. It came on Blue Note in 1975 and is full of all killer no filler gold. It also saw her, along with producers the Mizell Brothers aka Larry and Fonce, come up with a fresh new largely instrumental funk sound. Weaving in everything from world music to soul-jazz to club music to pop, it's a widescreen sound that is packed with uplifting flute from Humphrey and lush production that reveals something new with each listen.

Review: Since first joining forces in 2017, Warren Hampshire and Greg Foat have released some of the most magical albums of recent times - sets that cannily combine their mutual love of pastoral music, jazz-funk, library jazz, soundtracks and heady downtempo grooves. The Upturned Glass, the pair's sixth collaborative full-length, is another genuine gem. Highlights come thick and fast, from the skewed, lo-fi jazz-funk warmth of 'Pool In The Rose' and the string-drenched beauty of opener '6,000 Drunks Clinging to a Landslip' (an amusing title for a genuinely moving track), to the chiming, low-slung brilliance of the two-part title track and the emotive, slow-motion ambient-folk beauty of 'Evening Song'.

Review: Here's something special: a luscious, far-sighted solo album from Azymuth bassist Alex Malheiros, produced by rising star (and son of Brit-funk/acid jazz legend Bluey) Daniel Maunick. It's a predictably warming, slick and summery affair whose tracks casually - and successfully - join the dots between Azymuth style jazz-funk, samba, Brit-funk, Weather Report and rubbery, sun-soaked deepness. As you'd expect, the musicianship is impeccable (Malheiros' own bass parts are stunning and as fluid as you'd expect), while Maunick's production is polished without being overtly clinical. The result is a hugely enjoyable set that may well become regarded as a contemporary jazz-funk classic.

  1. Why Can't People Be Colors Too? (4:48)

Review: The Whatnauts are best known for their evergreen classic 'Help Is On The Way', but they've got a mighty fine catalogue which goes deeper and further than just that tune. Here Dynamite Cuts gather up three essentials and press them to a 7" for your convenience, leading in with 1972's 'Why Can't People Be Colours Too?' from the Whatnauts On The Rocks album. When the break drops, you'll fully understand why it got picked - pure understated perfection. 'Souling With The Whatnauts' and 'Message From A Black Man' are both taken from 1970s Introducing The Whatnauts, offering up a more mellow, reflective side of this cult Baltimore group.

  3. Bananas (2:18)
Review: Weldon Johnathan Irvine is enjoying a return to the spot light this month as Dynamite Cuts serve up a trio of reissues of some of his best work. He recorded it all during the 80s, when the British funk, soul and jazz scene was at its most vibrant best and this is a fine expand of that. As always with this famously relaxed and easy going artist work, the music reflects his warm spirit in sound. This limited 45rpm opens with a special 7" cut of 'Deja Vu' which is mellifluous and glowing thanks to the molten Rhodes chords. On the flip is 'I Am' and then 'Bananas' gets you shaking your limbs with its off-grid beats and busy chord work.

Review: Mr. Weldon Johnathan Irvine is one of the many great artists who were part of the 80s funk, jazz, and soul scene. He is said to have been a super clam and gentle soul and that is clear from the music, which is superbly laidback and welcoming. This 45rpm takes a nice breezy jaunt through his jazzy world with innovative keyboard work and warm double bass and horns. There is a more smoky sound on the b-side which is a chill groove with lovely melodica and guitar sounds to nod along to. This is the first time this music has been available on 7".

  12. Greensleeves (5:28)
Review: It's the first Christmas-themed release this particular writer has come across this year, and what a welcome break it is. Here's hoping that everything we hear between now and the Big Day sounds so exquisite, a complete curveball considering what you might have expected A Charlie Brown Christmas score to sound like. But then Peanuts was always a cut above all the other cartoons.

What's here has the air of a sophisticated evening spent enjoying slow drinks in a late night jazz bar. It's sexy and refined stuff, laidback to the point where you can almost see the flames in the fireplace, resulting shadows dancing off the walls. Yes, 'Skating' is far more uptempo, and both 'Hark, The Herald Angels Sing' and 'Christmas Time Is Here' take us to school age Yuletide plays with their vocal choirs. But, on the whole, this might be the most tasteful festive album we'll get in 2021. So dig in.

Love Has Found Its Way

Cat: VR 06. Rel: 22 Nov 21
  1. Love Has Found Its Way (guitar instrumental version) (4:38)
  2. Love Has Found Its Way (dub guitar) (4:38)
Review: Earlier in the year, Robert 'Dubwise' Browne followed up his superb, soft-focus reggae-soul cover of 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine' with 'Love Has Found Its Way', a fine hook-up with vocalist Maya Hatch that effortlessly joined the dots between samba, lovers rock and sultry downtempo soul. On this "45" he delivers two instrumental revisions of the cut, both of which make superb use of the glistening, fluid jazz guitar solos that only made a brief appearance on the original release. The A-side 'Guitar Instrumental Version' sounds like a future Balearic classic, with his Peter Green-esque solos tumbling down across a shuffling samba rhythm. The flipside 'Dub Guitar' version explores similar sonic territory, amplifying the bass a little while making good use of reverb and delay effects. In a word: gorgeous.

Review: Back in the 80s, Weldon Johnathan Irvine was a core part of the sul, jazz and funk scene. He was an amiable man who put out plenty of records that reflected that and now some of them are making their way onto 45rpm for the first time ever. This latest 7" opens with 'Fat Mouth' which is a busy and dynamic cut with mad keys work, crashing drums and a real sense of urgency as it hurries along. There is a more reflective and thoughtful mood to the gorgeous flip side, which encourages the mind to wander on the heart chords and breezy grooves.

Review:  Black Cash & Theo AKA Thelonious Beats are Jedi love beatmakers and edit kings. The bulk of their work comes on the Galaxy Sound Co label out of the US of A and just a few weeks after their last outing they return with two more golden grooves. This one is a real heater to keep you warm during the winter months and ensure your New Year's Eve goes off in style. 'Groovin' stays low and rides a lo-fi boom-bap with soulful guitars and heat damaged organ chords. 'Little Green Apples' (remastered Jazz mix edit) is super sentimental and rich in sound.

Last October, acclaimed saxophonist Pharoah Sanders turned 80 years young, and his input on this album is testimony to the fact he has clearly aged like a fine wine. Not that this is to suggest preceding outings were anything less worthy than this collaborative project, which sees Sam Shepherd, the British electronic artist better known to most as Floating Points, write nine spectacular arrangements which are then performed by said brass legend, alongside The London Symphony Orchestra.

The results are spectacular, and wildly far-reaching, albeit firmly rooted in jazz with classical undertones. From the movements that made this final cut, some are whisper quiet and delicate to the point of risking breaking off if you were handling haphazardly. Others are booming loud, musical jumbo jets landing at the end of another great crescendo. Whether hushed or monumental, though, we can feel every note and bar of this masterpiece.

Review: Sven Wunder's new album Natura Morta (which translates as dead nature) finds him joining the dots between nature and "the human ability to judge and observe in eleven musical compositions." The Swedish artist really excels on his mission here with serene and sophisticated strings on grandiose and sweeping opening track 'En Plein Air.' From there, the airy sounds continue with melancholic chords and exquisite strings all soothing the soul as they take you on a journey through the great outdoors. The lush title track is a particular standout with its widescreen feel and romantic acoustic sounds.

  7. Night Lights (1965 version) (2:56)
Review: "Epitomising of the cool jazz subgenre, Night Lights is American baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan's whopping 28th album, and his first for the indie major Philips label in 1963. A lyrical and laid-back affair, the cover depicts a skyline resembling New York's, but we'd rather liken the music to a late night Mediterranean scene. The title track, along with choice cuts 'Festive Minor' and 'Wee Small Hours', move through perfectly recorded, stereo-panned bossa nova and post-bop without stress. After the unjustifiably inflated prices of former represses, make sure you cop this one for a fraction; this reissue contains remasters by Kevin Gray from the original Philips tape vault, and an additional inser with photos and words by the album's session bassist Bill Crow.

It was performed at the 1972 Festival de jazz de Chateauvallon in the south of France and has been remastered from the organ tapes used during the live TV Broadcast. It marked the start of Don become a mystic figure and shining his legacy as a jazz great and is filled with spiritual jazz sounds, organic percussion, and because it was performed in an outdoor amphitheatre, the sounds of dozens of adults and children are also on the recording.

Review: According to what has been written on Valentina Goncharova, the Ukrainian experimental artist's career trajectory followed a similar path to many involved in the rather vaguely named, loosely associated 'new music movement' of the 20th Century. Born in Kyiv, she would spend her early years immersed in the study of classical sounds approved by the Soviet state, moving to Leningrad (St. Petersburg) at the age of 16.

Already an expert violinist and garnering a reputation as a lauded street musician, she would soon begin exploring alternative playing styles, often working with pianists to realise avant garde arrangements. Soon finding influences from free jazz and abstract rock scenes in the city, this collection of her work shows just how wild things got in terms of form. In moments, it feels like you've landed on another planet in a scene from the first series of Star Trek, other instances are pure serene beauty. All of it is absolutely mind-blowing.

Review: Don Cherry made many inspired, impossible-to-pigeonhole albums in his time, though few are quite as unusual - in the best possible way -as his previously unissued 1968 recording The Summer House Sessions. Recently re-discovered in the Swedish Jazz Archive, the recording featured the legendary trumpeter jamming with jazz players from umpteen Swedish bands and a Turkish percussionist. The resultant recording, which is split in two on this vinyl version, is an inspired, otherworldly mixture of improvised free-jazz jazz, Middle Eastern rhythms, intoxicating Indian style ragas, plentiful special effects and tons of heady spirituality. It's extremely hard to pigeonhole, undeniably psychedelic and genuinely brilliant.

Review: Malik Alston presents Painted Pictures: Air is a collection of long lost tracks. They were all crafted by Malik and his band Painted Pictures and take in jazz, soul and gospel as well as classic Motor City house sounds. There are tunes that dance on nimble keys, are accented with funky sax playing, riddled with lush keys and topped off with jazz vocalists that ooze style. Malik himself describes the album as "a combination of freedom, self awareness, and doing something different and new." He's not wrong, because these tunes are thrilling inventive and rewarding. To hear something as special as 'Almost On The One' on a dance floor can only be an unforgettable experience.

Review: As a continued outpost for intriguing reissue material from the 70s and 80s in Australia, The Roundtable have struck gold with this archival series of Antipodean jazz. The first volume in 2020 dealt with modal forms, while this second presentation from the Jazznote and 44 Records archives heads out into free jazz and post-bop territory too. Just check the swirling, delay soaked delights of The Charlie Muntro Trio's 'Whirlpool' and marvel at the ingenuity, or pirouette through the ascendant playing of Allan Zavod's 'Circles'. There's marvellous discoveries to be made around every corner, shining a light on an under-represented corner of global jazz culture.

Review: It was a logical next step for the coveted Late Night Tales label and compilation-mix-back-to-ours-selection series. While the brand has been known for inviting some of the finest DJs, artists and acts from the loosely defined and unarguably broad world of electronic music to deliver a personally curated tracklist of hugely various music, At the Movies breaks rank and instead looks to bring together work connected on a thematic level. As the title makes very clear, this is all about cinematic scores.

While there are a million and one of those compilations out there already, this stab at celebrating great soundtracks certainly does stand out. Perhaps chosen by more astute ears than the average 'churn-it-out' cash cow efforts, you'll find some relatively obvious choices for the LNT generation ('Mad World', anyone?) alongside more surprising choices, such as foxtrot classic 'Midnight, The Stars & You' and Wendy Carlos & Mark Ayres vocoder'd up take on 'Ode To Joy'.

Review: Very little is known about the collective of musicians behind the SAULT project, but their music in many ways speaks for itself. Earlier in the year they delivered Untitled (Black Is), a heartfelt, angry and righteous set of soul, funk, drill and spoken word tracks that provided a brilliant commentary on what it means to be black in 2020. It's a contender for album of the year, for sure, and the good news is that this speedy follow-up is every bit as essential. It's undoubtedly more celebratory than its predecessor, but every bit as musically detailed, combining cutting-edge electronics and all manner of infectious rhythms with enlightening vocals and all manner of live jazz, soul, punk-funk and jazz-funk instrumentation (as well as some seriously evocative orchestration).

  2. The Moment (4:35)
Review: 'I'm Here' is the glorious second single from Cornell CC Carter's album, Next Life. It is a superbly seductive and go-slow stepper with neat bass riffs spaciously drawn out beneath acoustic guitar motifs and lumpy drums. The vocal is butter sweet and as the track rolls on the chords grow ever more lush. After that memorising a-side comes a modern take on Curtis Mayfield style soul complete with the steamy spoken vocals, screen string sweeps and pillowy chords. Finishing it off in style is a bassline to die for.

Review: Muriel Grossman serves up this superb fusion album with help from some fine talents. Her own saxophone work is joined by Radomir Milojkovi on guitar, Llorenc Barcelo on Hammond and Uros Stamenkovic's tight drums. The spiritual jazz sounds on all four of the elongated tunes veer from peaceful to warm, tribal to hypnotic. 'Happiness' simmers quietly and beautifully, 'Traneing In' soars to some intense sax lead heights and 'Sundown' is steamy and late-night sound that is brilliantly seductive. Add in the vibrant 'African Dance' with its free solos and the soul-awakening tune of 'Union' and you have a real doozy.

Review: Tenor saxophone master and composer Wayne Shorter recorded his The All Seeing Eye album in 1965. It's a hugely ambitious album, multi layered and intriguing and is now reissued as part of Blue Note's Tone Poet series. His aim for the music was that it would use "a wider range of colours and textures" as well as continuing on his usual theme to explore life, the universe and god. The main man was joined for this one by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, Grachan Moncur III on trombone and Herbie Hancock on piano, amongst others. The epic rollercoaster that is 'Genesis' has to be the highlight here.

Review: The Alt label hits its second record with a sterling cast of wayward techno bods in tow. Things fire up in a tough and trippy manner as Delta wrings all kinds of tricky noises out of his gear and keeps the bass brooding in the low end, but hold tight for a perfectly 90s chord progression in that pad line. Cabanelas has a bleepy mission on 'Sambu Y Los Morsas' which flits between creepy passages of tension and acid tweaking drops. Z@p keeps things melancholic while adhering to the record's over-arching old-skoool outboard vibe, and then Justin Drake and Quinn Whalley sign the record off with a slice of proto trance for the deepest of 90s-tinted dancefloor reveries.

Review: Blue Note's Tone Poet series continues to revisit some of the label's most seminal releases and give them a new spit and polish before cutting them to virgin wax. This time out it is the Charles Mingus classic Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus from 1964. The American composer and bassist collaborated with arranger and orchestrator Bob Hammer to score this one, which is all about music for a large ensemble of brass and saxophones. The eight tracks range from empty and pensive to stirring and optimistic. Though none of the tunes were new for this session, the way they are played brings plenty of freshness to each.

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
  1. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
  2. Home Is Where the Hatred Is
Review: Wow, classics don't come much more special than this. A like-for-like repress of the 1970 RCA release, both sides here are soaked in Scott Heron's raw troubled soul. The endlessly sampled, hugely powerful and perfectly funky "Revolution" remains almost as poignant and prophetic as it was the day it was penned. "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" is much more personal and reveals his talent as a singer as much as the lead track boasts his poetry and ability to deliver a strong message.

Review: Rewind to 1975, Brazilian supergroup Azymuth hit their richest creative vein with this self-titled full-length. Just as the band remain so themselves, this is still hugely relevant and ridiculously on-point considering it's 40 years on the clock. Proof can be found on every track from the sedative harmonic charms of the opener "Linha Do Horizonte", the raw slap bass funk, velvet keys and soaring synths on "Seems Like This" and the frenetic, almost techy mentality of "Wait For My Turn". An essential addition to any collection, this would have blown minds to pieces back in 1975.
