    Herbie HancockThe Herbie Hancock TrioGet On Down

    This 1977 studio recording finds Herbie Hancock embracing his jazz roots. The straightforward trio setting puts Hancock’s piano front and center. Backed by Ron Carter on bass and Tony Williams behind the drums, the recording features Hancock originals as well as the Trio’s take on Miles Davis’ 'Milestones'.

    Though recorded at fabled San Francisco studio The Automatt, the recording was only immediately issued in Japan. To this day Japan is the only country to see a vinyl release of this session - until now!

      Herbie HancockSextant (1972)Columbia

      '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.

      Herbie HancockTakin' Off (1962)Blue Note

      Herbie Hancock's debut album in 1962 launched a phenomenal career. Features Freddie Hubbard and Dexter Gordon and includes the seminal 'Watermelon Man".

      Herbie HancockCantaloupe Island Blue Note

      This formidable recording neatly summarises Herbie Hancock's work in the 60s. The title track, Cantaloupe Island, provided inspiration for US3, who sampled it heavily. Herbie's piano skills are matched by some exemplary trumpet work on Cantaloupe and Watermelon Man.

      THIS IS A VERY GOOD REPRESENTATION OF HERBIES BLUE NOTE WORK, IF YOU
      DONT WANT TO PLOUGH THROUGH HIS WHOLE ALBUMS OF THIS PERIOD.
      MAIDEN VOYAGE, CANTALOUPE ISLAND AND WATERMELON MAN ARE ALL HERE.
      RECOMMENDED. A GOOD BUY.

                                              30-track instrumental album from Koushik, who specializes in making that hazy, hip hop based downbeat shit that you could easily compare to contemporaries such as Four Tet (who released Koushik's first single on his Text label), RJD2, and DJ Shadow. What sets Koushik apart from the others is a beautiful 60s psych pop element that tends to pervade throughout. It shows itself in the spacious panned strings, acoustic guitars, and harpsichords that fall in and out of each other, and the beats have a harder regimented classic true school hip hop sound, that Fourtet and Prefuse tend to stray away from.

                                                          Powerful new spiritual jazz from Chile on Soul Jazz Records!

                                                          This album comes as a very limited one-off unique pressing of 1000-edition vinyl, limited editon CD and digital release.

                                                          Enrique Rodríguez and the Negra Chiway Band group have an instantly powerful and unique sound that is reminiscent of the ensembles of Sun Ra and his Arkestra as well as Horace Tapscott and his Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, one that channels the righteous spirits of Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp and McCoy Tyner together with a stunning Latin rhythmical and new consciousness and percussive energy. Added to this are elements of the Samurai film soundtracks of Akira Kurosawa, Popol Vuh’s musical spirituality (especially their work with film director Werner Herzog), Tibetan Buddhism and over-blowing chants, that all combine to give a truly unique new sound.

                                                          Enrique Rodríguez is a composer, percussionist, keyboardist, and producer from Santiago, Chile, whose work shows many similarities with the music featured on Soul Jazz Records’ recent collection ‘Kaleidoscope - New Spirts Known and Unknown’, featuring new forward-looking jazz artists including Mathew Halsall, Theon Cross, Emma-Jean Thackray and Makaya McCraven.

                                                          Like all these artists, Rodríguez’s work is a progressive and experimental fusion of earlier influences that combine into a new and definitely 21st century ground-breaking sound that, on account of its South American setting, give the group its truly unique feeling. Hypnotic modal piano riffs, powerful brass and flutes, an army of Latin percussion instruments, and addictive vocal chants all combine in this powerful mix of radical 60s Afro-centric jazz, eastern spirituality and cosmology, and Latin American rhythmical movement.

                                                          Awesome!
