                    Totally essential super-funky heavyweight funky fusion from Larry Young!

                    It's incredible to think that Larry Young developed from his years at Blue Note in the 1960s to make this hard-rocking jazz fusion funky masterpiece - it's almost hard to believe it's the same artist, such is the transformation!

                    The track Turn off the Light is a truly amazing rare groove classic that will make you want to dance whenever you play it!

                    Combining the slackest deep jazz electronic wig-out keyboard playing with a low slung yet super-tight groove and saucy female vocals - this is a recipe for one electrifyingly good record!

                    Very VERY highly recommended!

                        Donald Alexander Strachan and The Freedom EnsembleSoul Translation: A Spiritual SuiteUniversal Sound

                        Soul Jazz Records/Universal Sound are releasing “Soul Translation: A Spiritual Suite" a superb lost USA deep jazz independent private-press album originally self-published by Donald Alexander Strachan and the Freedom Ensemble on Triad Music Concepts in 1975.

                        This great soulful/spiritual jazz album was the only album that Strachan released and consequently has become a lost rarity -  a must for fans of Tribe, Strata-East and other conscious jazz from the 1970s and features in Gilles Peterson/Soul Jazz Records' Freedom, Rhythm and Sound book.

                        Donald Alexander Strachan is composer, conductor, guitarist, vocalist and more leading a large 11-piece line-up that includes Jay Hoggard on vibes.

                        Strachan studied in New York City in the 1970s with composer/saxophonist Sam Rivers and Ghanaian Drum-master Abraham Adzenyah as well as avant-garde guitarist/composer Bruce Johnson all of who helped shape his unique sound.

                        In the 1980s Strachan entered into the collaborative world of cinema by composing musical scores and has been involved in cinema ever since both musically, as a scriptwriter and director. Donald Alexander Strachan and the Freedom Ensemble’s “Soul Translation: A Spiritual Suite" is a unique product of Strachan’s multicultural and African-American heritage and aesthetic - polyrhythmically complex and spiritually intense.

                        This is a bespoke high quality hardback-cased Japanese thick card CD edition with exact-reproduction artwork from the original album.

                        The 180-gram vinyl thick card exact-reproduction artwork is strictly limted to 1000 copies wordwide.

                                  Tropicalia: The Definitive 1968 Classic Brazilian Album Ou Panis et CircencisUniversal Sound

                                  This is the definitive Tropicalia concept album, originally released in 1968 and featuring all the key players in the movement: Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes, Tom Ze and Nara Leao. If you have the Soul Jazz Records' 'Tropicalia' compilation then this is the perfect accompaniment.

                                  Here you will find the original, groundbreaking mix of psychedelic rock combined with with boleros, sambas, bossa nova and jazz into a carnival-esque parade which redefined and first announced the new global sound of Brazilian music.

                                  What is stunning is that this anarchic and groundbreaking release was recorded at the height of the Brazilian military dictatorship, during an era where censorship, repression and the threat of violence was a constant in all (musical and) daily life inside the country.

                                  Rolling Stone magazine in Brazil has voted this album no.2 in the 100 Best Brazilian albums of all-time.

                                  This classic album is Tropicália’s manifesto - a fantastical syncretic fusing of psychedelic rock & pop, Brazilian traditional music and the avant-garde. Soul JAzz Records are proud to be presenting this original album in full exact reproduction glorious cover art and fully remastered sound.

                                  Essential!
