    Gil Scott-HeronI'm New Here (10th Anniversary Expanded Edition)XL Recordings

    "In February 2010, the late, legendary musician, poet and author Gil Scott-Heron released his thirteenth, and last, studio album. First conceptualised in 2005, and ultimately produced by XL Recordings head Richard Russell during New York recording sessions that commenced in January 2008, 'I’m New Here' was Scott-Heron’s first album in thirteen years and found him sounding as vital, boundary-pushing and insightful as ever before. XL Recordings release a limited-edition, expanded version of the album on its 10th anniversary. In addition to the original album, the 'I'm New Here 10th Anniversary Edition' features two unreleased tracks - a cover of Richie Havens’ 'Handsome Johnny’ and a previously unheard Scott-Heron song 'King Henry IV’ - as well as a selection of other recordings from the original I’m New Here sessions that were only previously available on a rare, vinyl only deluxe version of the LP."

      Gil Scott-HeronThe Revolution Begins: The Flying Dutchman MastersBGP

      The three albums Gil Scott-Heron recorded for Bob Thiele’s Flying Dutchman label are some of the most important in the history of black music. They show a multi-talented artist reaching maturity with his first recorded efforts. "The Revolution Begins” gathers together every piece of music released by Gil on Flying Dutchman, including a track recorded with Bernard “Pretty” Purdie which has never been previously reissued. All remastered from the original master tapes, bringing you sound that’s better than you’ll ever have heard and new clarity to Gil’s words and the musical performances. BGP have additionally assembled an alternate version of Gil's third album, "Free Will", based on access to the original recordings.

        Horace Tapscott QuintetThe Giant Is AwakenedFlying Dutchman

        This album has been out of print for near on 50 years and is a 100% essential cornerstone deep, deep spiritual jazz release - don't miss out!

        Seminal spiritual jazz masterpiece from 1969! Horace Tapscott's debut (and only) release for a major label - Flying Dutchman - occurred at the height of the civil rights/black power movement in the USA. Soon after the Watts Riots (65), Tapscott was the central figure at the heart of the community music scene (a precursor to that of Thundercat, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus almost 50 years later).

        Flying Dutchman was the only major label that Tapscott trusted to release his music - a testament to founder Bob Thiele who had produced John Coltrane's seminal Impulse releases throughout the 1960s. At the same time as Tapscott, Flying Dutchman signed Gil Scott Heron and Leon Thomas.

              Ornette Coleman Friends And Neighbours: Ornette Live At Prince StreetFlying Dutchman

              One of the most forward-thinking and radical musicians of his or any era, saxophone great Ornette Coleman revolutionised jazz with his early albums for Atlantic Records. In the late 60s he was signed to Impulse by Bob Thiele. When Bob left Impulse, Coleman donated a track to his Flying Dutchman album “Head Start”. Then, finding himself temporarily without a deal, he allowed Flying Dutchman to put out his latest album, a fascinating recording cut live at a loft space Coleman owned in downtown New York. Musicians on the recording include his long-time collaborators Ed Blackwell on drums and Charlie Haden on bass alongside fiery tenor player Dewey Redman. The music is a satisfying set that particularly shines on the title track and ‘Forgotten Song’. Out of print for nearly 40 years, “Friends And Neighbors” is one of the most overlooked albums in Coleman’s extensive discography. We hope this reissue brings a change to that.

                  Miles DavisKind of Blue (1959)Columbia

                  There's a good reason that this is the world's most loved jazz album - because it really is an amazingly beautiful record and a perfect exemplar of its genre! This truly is the jazz record that everyone should own!

                  Miles Davis produced a lot of records in his career that are now considered classic albums, but none more so than this - this is both a milestone in the history of jazz and an amazingly beautiful and timeless record!

                  This is the modal jazz record that every jazz player dreamed of bettering - it set a standard of style and beauty that still remains today!

                  Alternately cool, tranquil, mournful, and bluesy - standout tracks have to be the opener So What, and the heart-wrenchingly beautiful Blue in Green and All Blues!

                  Every music fan needs this album!

                  Very highly recommended!

                  * Double album special edition also features a bonus alternate take of "Flamenco Sketches" and "On Green Dolphin Street"

                  Bronx River ParkwaySan SebastianTruth & Soul

                  Now available on LP! Truth & Soul, in conjunction with Candela Records present the first full-length from New York's premier latin-soul band, Bronx River Parkway. With their first LP, "San Sebastian 152", BRP delivers an exceptional and completely fresh take on music inspired by groups like The Lebron Brothers, Apollo Sound, and Ocho. In 2005, Pablo Rodriguez, of Candela Records, and Rostarr had a vision of merging the raw, soulful aesthetic of TRUTH & SOUL with the distinct, traditional musical vocabulary of Puerto Rico. The way to see this vision though was to team NY latin/soul outfit, Bronx River Parkway, with a crew of legendary Puerto Rican musicians, some of which have graced the stage with such legends as Roberta Roena, Cortijo, Tito Puente, and Ismael Riviera to name a few. BRP and a team of TRUTH & SOUL associates were flown to San Juan, PR in February of 2006 for eight days. What came of the trip was a unique and inspired mix of the varying musical genres that have influenced both BRP and all the musicians involved.

                          Soul Jazz Records’ new ox-blood red coloured vinyl limited-edition 1000-copies worldwide LP (+ download code) issue of this very rare deep spiritual jazz album first released as a private-press album in 1970 on flautist Lloyd McNeill’s own Asha Record label in Washington, DC.


                          CLASSIC! DEEP Jazz includes the wicked 'Home Rule'

                          Lloyd McNeill is an African-American flautist, painter, poet, and photographer born in Washington, D.C., in 1935. His multi-disciplinary creative life led to encounters and friendships with Nina Simone, Picasso, Eric Dolphy, Nana Vasconceles and other legendary cultural figures. Lloyd McNeill’s hypnotic ‘Washington Suite’ was originally commissioned as a piece of music for the Capital Ballet Company, in Washington, DC.

                          McNeill grew up through the era of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s and his life and work is a reflection of those ideals. In the mid-1960s he moved to France where he became friends with Picasso, working with a number of émigré-jazz musicians whilst living in Paris. In the late 1960s he taught jazz and painting workshops at the New Thing Art and Architecture Center in Washington. In the 1970s he travelled throughout Brazil and West Africa studying music and taught music anthropology in the US.

Particular attention has been paid to the way the songs are sequenced (or “mixed”) so that the album builds up nicely and gradually, generally starting with the Rocksteady songs on the A side and the 70s songs on the B side.

                          The cover features unique art drawing from a talented French cartoonist Alteau. This release includes a 30x30cm insert poster printed on glossy magazine paper.

Fans of Bay Area Funk will recognize the different musical periods that Blacknell goes through with comparisons ranging from acts like Johnny Talbot and Tower of Power to Sly Stone and Graham Central Station.
