              Stephen StillsStephen Stills (1970)Atlantic

              The album features an array of well-known guest musicians, including David Crosby and Graham Nash, who contributed vocals. Ringo Starr drums on two tracks under the pseudonym "Richie,"[3] which he also used for his contribution to the London Sessions album by American bluesman Howlin' Wolf, recorded in England the same year. Stills' album is also the only album in rock and roll history to which both Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix supplied guitar work. Hendrix died before the album was released—Stills dedicated the album to "James Marshall Hendrix."

                                            Tumbele!Biguine, Afro and Latin Sounds from The French CaribbeanSoundway

                                            Another killer compilation of 60's and 70's Biguine, Afro & Latin sounds from the French Caribbean on the brilliant Soundway label!

                                            You may be familiar with Soundway's previous amazing Nigerian-focused compilations showcasing homegrown disco, rock and boogie sounds of the mid to late 1970s Lagos nightclub scene as well as their explosive latin compilations 'Panama' and 'Colombia'! Soundway live up to their brilliant reputation with Tumbele and do not disappoint, turning their attention to the overlooked and forgotten music from the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, French departments in the Caribbean and centres of creole culture!

                                            The album focuses on the rich musical period 1963-1974, on both islands, a time when Haitan compas, Congolese rumba and cuban guaguanco combined with the local biguine style to create the sound of tumbele, a uniquely French antillean style that is partly a product of the colonial past of the islands, in their position in the multi-cultural, multi-lingual "sixth continent' of the Carribbean.

                                            This is a fantastic upbeat album where swaying biguines, meet heavy gwo ka drums and creole rhythms collide with the sounds of carnival. Haitan, Congolese and Puerto Rican influences are added to the pot in a percussive celebration of Afro-antillean spirit!

                                            ACE!

                                              Bossa Nova and the Rise of Brazilian Music in the 1960sBOOK Edited by Gilles Peterson and Stuart BakerSoul Jazz Books

                                              Currently out of print!

                                              This is the first ever collection of bossa nova record cover artwork, featuring stunning modernist and revolutionary designs that reflect the radical and exciting idealism of Brazil at the start of the 1960s.

                                              Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records) bring you this amazing new deluxe hardback 12" x 12" book, 200 pages, 100s of stunning absolutely killer Bossa Nova sleeves from Brazil plus loads of historical, cultural and social text as well as biographies on loads of the artists!

                                               As Brazil developed into an urban society, with ‘apartment living’ and consumer goods, bossa nova projected an image that was modern, sophisticated and cool.

                                              Bossa Nova music arrived in Brazil at the end of the 1950s with an optimism and modernism that parralleled the arrival of the new Brazilian president, Juscelino Kubitschek, who promised 'fifty years of progress in five' in his election campaign and announced the building of a new capital city, Brasilia, deep in the heartland of Brazil. The city was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, a man who had just designed a new musical theatre production in Rio of a play written by Vinicius de Moraes and with music written by Antonio Carlos Jobim. These two, along with the singer João Gilberto were about to make Bossa Nova, the first modernist Brazilian art form, the most succesful Brazilian export since coffee.

                                              This book is a unique collection of the cover art of Brazilian bossa nova music, containing hundreds of record covers complete with a history of bossa nova, biographies and essays on many of the artists involved in the movement.

                                              The book follows on from our previous cover art book on Jazz called Freedom, Rhythm and Sound, also edited by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker.

                                              To coincide with the book, there is also a separate double-CD album, 'Bossa Nova and the Rise of Brazilian Music in the 1960s' also released on Soul Jazz Records.

                                              Gilles Peterson is a respected BBC radio broadcaster and worldwide club DJ who has probably done more to promote Brazilian music in all its forms than anyone else over the last 20 years. Stuart Baker is founder of Soul Jazz Records, London.

                                                  Boombox 3Soul Jazz Records

                                                  Soul Jazz Records’ new Boombox 3 continues the story of the first rap records to be put onto vinyl. It is a jam-packed collection of original independent ‘old-school’ hip-hop, created with just one thing in mind – to get this party jumping!

                                                  After the explosion of hip hop in the parks and clubs of The Bronx in the mid-1970s, it was in Harlem where the first rap records emerged at the end of 1979 - an avalanche of superb rap tracks released on small independent labels all trying to capitalise on the success of ‘Rappers Delight.’

                                                  Like hip hop culture itself, these first rap singles are the product of their own unique set of aesthetics – exciting and innovative rap performed with Bronx block party B-Boy funk breaks, disco jams and Jamaican sound system culture.

                                                  The extensive sleevenotes discuss hip-hop’s trajectory from the first wave of Bronx creativity – the legendary DJs Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa – through to its arrival in Harlem via the entrepreneurism of old-school African-American rhythm and blues producers and émigré Jamaican producers all living in New York. Along the way the notes discuss everything from the New York power blackout of 1977, the Italian mafia involvement in the music industry, the links between rap and Jamaican dancehall and more besides!

                                                  Boombox 3 features a line-up of stunning, near unknown New York rap artists, classic disco breaks (including Chic’s omnipotent Good Times, MFSB’s Love Is the Message, Queen’s Another One Bites The Dust etc.), proto-electro and more. And by the early 1980s the first rap records outside New York began to emerge – Los Angeles, Houston, Milwaukee, Phoenix – and the first of these are also featured here in this new collection.

                                                  This Soul Jazz Records album is released on heavyweight triple vinyl (+ download code) with full notes, double CD pack with 44-page outsize booklet and slipcase, and digital album.

                                                  Seu Jorge and Almaz – drummer Pupillo and guitarist Lucio Maia from the stalwart Nação Zumbi, with bassist and composer Antonio Pinto – came together naturally to record a song for a Walter Salles film. They enjoyed the experience so much that they recorded an entire album, free of convention, of music that inspired them: they covered songs famous within the Brazilian diaspora and added a psychedelic samba to some classic American and European soul tunes such as Roy Ayers 'Everybody Love The Sunshine' and Michael Jackson's 'Rock With You'.

                                                  They enlisted producer and fellow Brasileiro Mario C. (Beastie Boys, Jack Johnson) to put the finishing touches on the project. Seu Jorge and Almaz have created an album both warm and dark, psychedelic yet grounded, uplifting but at times somber! Recommended!!!

                                                        "Soul Jazz’s excellent collection… even without the history, the importance, and the ins and outs, this music isn’t as much of an intellectual pursuit as it is a pleasure in every note… tremendously tight vocal arrangements… just chock full of creativity, developing a unique sound in every single." Pitchfork

                                                          Omar Souleyman is a Syrian musical LEGEND! Since he started performing in 1994 he has released at least 500 live and studio cassette albums (im pretty sure that starting collecting these will be hard, but oh well! you can start here!). This record is Omar's Western debut release in which he culls different songs from when he performed in 1994 to 2006. Omar uses a Mawal-style Arabic singing along with that uses inspirational brakes taken from Iraqi Choubi Choubi styles (not the Choubi Choubi comp on Sublime Frequencies), Turkish and his traditional Syrian sounds of Dabke which in a way is a very intense and bass inspired form of sound in similar lines to Choubi Choubi. This record contains Souleyman's first Syrian hit "Jani" which he released back in 1996 and in turn helped him gain status in the countries such as Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Dubai to name a few.

                                                          This is the 2 LP edition and comes in a gorgeous full color gatefold sleeve with photos and text by Mark Gergis (Sublime Frequencies collaborator).

                                                          HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
