        John ColtraneGiant Steps (60th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)Warner Jazz / Rhino

        **Remastered and includes additional outtakes**

        'Giant Steps' was possibly Coltrane's most consistently outstanding tenor solo statementto date. Of course, Coltrane's own performance on 'Kind of Blue', just a month or two before, is now legendary, but on Miles Davis's album Coltrane had shared the glory with soloists of a similar calibre, and furthermore the present recording contained nothing but his own compositions.

        John ColtraneBlue World (1964) [Previously Unreleased]Impulse!

        In 1964, the National Film Board of Canada asked John Coltrane to record the soundtrack for a French-language film titled 'Le Chat dans le Sac' ('The Cat in the Bag'). Amazingly, no announcement was made that the iconic Coltrane was adding new performances to this film.

        In June of that year, Coltrane’s ‘Classic Quartet’ entered Rudy Van Gelder’s studio and recorded five previously- recorded Coltrane originals. For many years, viewers of the film who recognised the music thought that they were listening to the original recordings, though in fact they were new and had never been heard. Now, with the release of Blue World, we can hear these newly-discovered recordings for the first time!

        John Coltrane1963: New DirectionsImpulse!


        John Coltrane 1963: New Directions collects all of John Coltrane’s 1963 Impulse recordings in the order in which they were recorded. 5-LP and 3-CD sets include artwork featuring original collages. The box shows us the growth in Coltrane’s musical journey in 1963 that ultimately resulted in 1964’s Crescent and, especially, A Love Supreme. Music comes from the original albums Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album, John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman, Dear Old Stockholm (released after Coltrane’s death), Newport ‘63 and Live at Birdland.

          John ColtraneBoth Directions At Once: The Lost AlbumImpulse!

          On March 6, 1963, John Coltrane and his classic quartet - McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones - recorded an entire studio album at the legendary Van Gelder Studios. This music, which features unheard originals, is finally released, 55 years later.

          This is, in short, the holy grail of jazz music!

                        John ColtraneLive At BirdlandImpulse! (1963)

                        Absolutely definitive Coltrane release ushering in the new sound of radical deepness at the start of the 1960s.

                        'Alabama' was written and performed shortly after the death of four children in a racist bombing of a church in Alabama. Coltrane wrote the song using the intonation and flow of the preacher at the funeral. It is a very, very profound piece of music.

                        The album starts with a ehavyweight version of Afro-Blue and continues in the same vein.

                        This album is ESSENTIAL to an understanding of John Coltrane.

                          John ColtraneMy Favorite Things (1961)Atlantic / Warner Jazz

                          If Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" is generally regarded as the best jazz album ever made, "My Favorite Things" by John Coltrane has to come second.

                              Coltrane's debut on Prestige.

                              John Coltrane recorded so frequently for the Prestige label during '56-'58 that it's tough to figure out where to start. This May 1957 recording, coming just after his departure from the Miles Davis Quintet, is a pretty good initiation.

                              The rhythm section (Mal Waldron and Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Al Heath on drums) is excellent and they're joined by Johnny Splawn (trumpet) and Sahib Shihab (baritone sax)

                              This album-length suite was Coltrane's gift to God. An undeniable masterpiece, one of the best albums recorded, in any genre, ever.

                              This 'Deluxe Edition' compiles in one package, for the first time, the full story of 'A Love Supreme'. Disc one presents the suite as originally released in 1965. The second disc features the only live performance of the suite, recorded at the '65 Antibes jazz festival, as well giving the long-rumoured sextet version of of the opening movement its first release.

                              Mastered by Rudy Van Gelder, the original recording engineer, and accompanied by lovingly-collected notes and photographs.

                                      Color De TrópicoEl Palmas Music

                                      DJs El Palmas and El Dragón Criollo have chosen eight impossibly hard-to-find jewels, originally released between 1966 and 1978, reissued here for the first time on vinyl.

                                      In this period, Venezuelan musicians assimilated a wide range of influences and styles, both local and global, to generate something new, a “modern” identity for Venezuelan music; artists who set their eyes on the future without giving up the search for their own sabor (flavour). This is how jazz, rock, salsa, funk, psych, prog and disco, sat next to guajira, cumbia, cha-cha-cha and even the hugely-popular Venezuelan style of joropo. It started a long tradition of Venezuelan musical pioneers, many of whom are still to get the recognition they deserve.

                                        LAST COPIES

                                        This is the new 20th anniversary edition of one of Soul Jazz Records’ classic Studio One releases now available as a one-off pressing special blue vinyl very limited-edition pressing ( 2000 copies worldwide).


                                        Studio One Roots set the standard for Soul Jazz Records’ long-standing series of Studio One collections and features many of the classic artists from Clement 'Sir Coxsone’ Dodd’s mighty roster of reggae.

                                        This album includes Freddie McGregor, Willie Williams, Cornell Campbell, Alton Ellis, Devon Russell alongside some of the defining crack-session men groups of Jamaican reggae history - The Sound Dimension, Brentford All-Stars, The Skatalites, New Establishment and more. As ever the album is filled with a mixture of seminal cuts and super-rarities from the vast vaults of 13 Brentford Road.

                                        Stand-out tracks include Alton Ellis’s Blackish White, a surreal and powerful Afro-centric dream, Count Ossie Nyabinghi and Rastafarian drummers genre-defying interpretation of Booker T and The MGs ‘Meditation’, Willie Williams awe-inspiring versioning of the Skatalites' seminal Rastafari anthem Addis Ababa and many, many more.

                                        This album has been fully digitally remastered, analog cut and packaged complete with the following: Original sleevenotes by Lloyd Bradley (author of When Reggae Was King), compiled by Mark Ainley (Honest Jons), high-quality Soul Jazz mastering, wicked images of Count Ossie and the Mystic Revelation of Rastafari on the cover, and a rare image of Clement Dodd and musicians inside the studio at Studio One on the full colour inner sleeves.


                                        "Having established himself as one of Jamaica's top producers the day Studio One opened its doors in the early '60s, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd was unable to maintain his status during the roots era of the subsequent decade. This can be attributed to a couple of factors. One was Dodd's apparent reluctance to record the new, overtly Rasta-inspired music. The other was an infusion of new blood into the Jamaican music business. Eager to make a name for themselves, producers like Joe Gibbs, Bunny Lee, Lee "Scratch" Perry, and Winston "Niney" Holness managed to supplant the island's "big three" (Dodd, Duke Reid, and Prince Buster) in the process, driving the music's evolution in the '70s.

                                        There isn't a weak number across these 16 tracks, from the Gaylads' ode to "Africa" and Devon Russell's version of the heavyweight "Drum Song" rhythm, to a trio of stunning instrumentals: Jackie Mittoo and the Cyclones with nyahbinghi drummer Count Ossie on "Meditation," Lenny Hibbert's sparkling vibe work over Mittoo's "Ghetto Organ" ("More Creation"), and Sound Dimension's "Congo Rock."

                                        The music of this compilation is of a rare, rare beauty and is essential to anyone's reggae collection." All Music
