    Recorded during the summer of 1980 and originally released in 1982 on Spotlight Records, ‘Paz are Back’ was the second (and arguably the finest) album by the London jazz collective, founded by vibraphonist, composer and arranger Dick Crouch. Known for their original jazz-funk and Latin stylings, the band held a weekly Sunday residency at The Kensington...

    Solo piano album from 1959. This reissue includes one bonus track, which is an alternative take of "There's Danger In Your Eyes, Cherie". Unencumbered by bass and drums, Monk is at his most introspective, taking advantage of the liquid tempo to patiently work though a series of originals and a few pop songs from his childhood, all of which,...

    As the right hand of Frank Sinatra from 1953 to 1968, George Jacobs arguably had one of the coolest jobs in the world at the time when Sinatra was the undisputed master of the entertainment universe.  Very, very, funny - listen to stories of how Frank used to tape his penis to his leg to avoid scareing audiences!

    Miles performs with Chick Corea on electric piano, Dave Holland on acoustic bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums; musicians who  went on to become leaders of the fusion movement. (Wayne Shorter unfortunately missed this date because he was stuck in traffic.) The A1 track "Miles Runs The Voodoo Down" is the first professionally live recorded ...
    In late 1966 Herbie Hancock, together with Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Ron Carter and Jack De Johnette, entered a New York studio to capture the vibe of 'swinging London' in a jazz mode with grooves that create effective bluesy moods on the slow pieces and funky ones on the up-tempo tracks. Meanwhile in London, the Yardbirds (with Jeff Beck and...

    'Sextant' from 1972 was recorded just before 'Headhunters', and can be seen in the same vein, but it's more than just an introduction to a masterpiece. It features a kind of post-modal, free impressionism while gracing the edges of funk. Three long instrumental tracks explore how far minimalism in jazz can go. 
    This record is Miles at his best, once again proving his unrivalled abilities both as a player of beautiful ballads and as an innovative performer. At times perhaps more lighthearted than such records as Kind of Blue, Someday My Prince Will Come is an early sextet album, featuring great performances from pianist Wynton Kelly, and the tenor saxophones...
    1959 album by The Dave Brubeck Quartet, based upon the use of time signatures that were unusual for jazz (mainly waltz or double-waltz time, but also 9/8, and most famously 5/4). An experimental, extraordinary album at the time that has became one of the best-known and biggest-selling jazz albums ever.

    The first of two albums taken from the same concert in 1975, the other being 'Pangaea.' They represent a full stop at the end of Miles'70s experiments before his five year 'retirement.' It had been arguably Miles' most creative phase of his career, and here, predictably, things are still changing and developing.

    Originally commissioned by director Conrad Rooks for his a semi-autobiographic fable of drug addiction, film Chappaqua (1965), saxophonist Ornette Coleman’s startlingly beautiful music was not in fact used on the final soundtrack (replaced by a Ravi Shankar score). Instead, Columbia Records released it as a double-album without promotion, and...

It features Don Pullen on piano; Ronald Hampton on trumpet; and George Adams on tenor saxophone. Mingus's ex-drummer Dannie Richmond, with many years behind the bassist, rejoined the band on the first day of recording. This is a classic...
