    Nigeria 70: The Definitive Story of 1970s Funky LagosStrut

    Essential double disc compilation of brilliant afro beat and afro funk from 1970s Nigeria!

    This first volume of Nigeria 70 was one of the last releases put out by the first incarnation of Strut records, and when the labe disappeared for a while this release disappeared with it, leaving many people without a copy, so we're delighted the newly reinvigorated Strut have chosen to put this ace compilation out again to give more people a chance to get a copy!

    Super funky, gritty 1970s afro grooves from all the key Nigerian bands and musicians including Segun Bucknor, Peter King, Tony Allen, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Orlando Julius, The Funkees, King Sunny Ade, and of course Fela Kuti!

    Comes with extensive sleeve notes, sleeve scans and photos!

    Nu Yorica ! Culture Clash in New York CitySoul Jazz Records

    This is the 20th anniversary expanded edition of one of Soul Jazz Records earliest definitive releases: ‘Nu Yorica : Culture Clash In New York City – Experiments in Latin Music 1970-77’, a stunning and ground-breaking collection of music bringing together Latin, Soul, Jazz, Funk and more from the melting pot of New York City in the 1970s.

    Out-of-print for more than ten years this new edition has been fully digitally remastered with new tracks, additional photography and is released as a deluxe 2CD pack + large outsize booklet, as well as a new edition of two super-loud super-heavy separate volumes of double vinyl. The album is also available for the first time as a worldwide digital release.

    Nu Yorica! is one of Soul Jazz Records most critically acclaimed albums of all time.

    The album features seminal Latin artists such as Eddie Palmieri, Joe Bataan, Machito, Ocho, Grupo Folklorico, Cortijo, Ricardo Marrero, Cachao and many more.

    Reviews:

    "Latin music never sounded so good. Ever.

    Some compilations are so influential and universally loved that they become classic albums in their own right – Harry Smith’s Anthology Of American Folk Music, for example. And just as Smith cemented forever the underground sound of the US between the wars, so did the then young Soul Jazz imprint immortalise the Latin music emerging from 70s New York with Nu Yorica!, originally released 20 years ago." Record Collector

    “A brilliant introduction to some of the most energising & misunderstood music ever” Wire

    “A truly inspired selection. If ever a CD was worth buying, this is it” The Guardian (CD of the week)

    “A percussive colossus. Mighty and frightening.” Q

    “If you buy one CD this week buy Nu Yorica!” The Observer

    “Soul Jazz go beyond dancefloor trends and explore the political agendas’ of their musical idols with this brave and diverse album” Maxim

    “From gritty funk to free-form experimentation, Soul Jazz’s selection of Latin-influenced dance music is sterling” The Face

    “A challenging and revelatory compilation of pure quality” Music Week

    “Positively throbs with energy.” NME

    “This music has influenced everything from Salsoul Disco to the Masters at Work”DJ

    “An excellent document of a key phase in musical history. Every single one of these tracks is superb. An absolute f***ing blinder” Echoes

    “Genre defying madness” Select

    “An utterly brilliant and well documented snapshot of the musical culture clash in 70’s New York” Muzik

    Cuba: Music and Revolution - Compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart BakerSoul Jazz Records

    Cuba: Music and Revolution: Culture Clash in Havana: Experiments in Latin Music 1975-85 Vol. 1 is the new album compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records) that explores the many new styles that emerged in Cuba in the 1970s as Jazz, Funk, Brazilian Tropicalia and even Disco mixed together with Latin and Salsa on the island as Cuban artists experimented with new musical forms created in the unique socialist state of Cuba.

    The album comes as a heavyweight 3xLP and deluxe 2xCD set, complete with extensive sleeve notes, and is jam-packed with heavy bass lines, synth and Wah-Wah guitar funk combined with the heavyweight percussion, powerful brass lines and the all-encompassing Latin rhythms of Cuban music known throughout the world.

    The album is released to coincide with the massive new deluxe large format book Cuba: Music and Revolution: Original Cover Art of Cuban Music: Record Sleeve Designs of Revolutionary Cuba 1959-90, published in November, which is also compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records), and which features the music and record designs of Cuba, made in the 30-year period following the Cuban Revolution.

    The music on this album features legendary Cuban groups such as Irakere, Los Van Van and Pablo Milanés as well as a host of lesser known artists such as the radical Grupo De Experimentación, Juan Pablo Torres and Algo Nuevo, Grupo Monumental and Orquesta Ritmo Oriental, groups whose names remain largely unknown outside of Cuba owing to the now 60-year old US trade embargo which remains in place today and which prevents trade with Cuba – and thus most Cuban records were only ever available in Cuba or in ex-Soviet Union states.

    The music on this album reflects the most cutting-edge of Cuban groups that were recording in Cuba in the 1970s and 1980s – who were all searching for a new Cuban identity and new musical forms that reflected both the Afro-Cuban cultural heritage of a nation that gave birth to Latin music - and its new position as a socialist state. Most of the music featured on this album have never been heard outside of Cuba.

    Both Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker have been involved in Cuban music for more than two decades – Gilles Peterson with his many Havana Cultura projects for his Brownswood label and Stuart Baker with a number of Soul Jazz Records albums recorded in Cuba. This Soul Jazz Records album is released in conjunction with Egrem, the Cuban state record company, and has been put together after the many crate-digging trips that both compilers have made on the streets of Havana and beyond in Cuba stretching over a 20-year period, searching out rare and elusive original Cuban vinyl records.

    REVIEWS:

    "It may only be January, but we already have a strong contender for 'compilation of the year'. Put together by devout crate-diggers and Cuban music enthusiasts Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker (founder of Soul Jazz Records)" JUNO

    "It's abundantly clear that these compilers are at the very top of their game. Everything here was previously unheard outside of Cuba, making this a feast for the curious" Vinyl District

    "Priceless comp goes beyond Buena Vista" UNCUT

    Trees SpeakShadow FormsSoul Jazz Records

    Super-limited new 1000 copies special ox-blood red vinyl edition!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It's a big one ... Absolutely stunning second album from Trees Speak new on Soul Jazz Records.

    Trees Speak’s new album ‘Shadow Forms’ is a blend of 1970s German electronic and ‘motorik’ Krautrock instrumentals (think Harmonia, Can, Cluster, Popul Vuh, Neu!), haunting and powerful 1960s & 1970s soundtracks (think Italian prog-rock Goblin and John Carpenter horror movies, Morricone and existential John Barry spy movies), together with a New Nork no wave electronic synth and guitar analogue DIY-ness (think Suicide, anything on Soul Jazz’s New York Noise series or Eno's New York No Wave)!

    Trees Speak’ segue together all these elements into ‘Shadow Forms,’ which follows on from their critically-acclaimed debut LP ‘Ohms,’ released on Soul Jazz Records less than six months ago.

    Trees Speak are Daniel Martin Diaz and Damian Diaz from Tucson, Arizona and their music often draws on the cosmic night-time magic of Arizona’s natural desert landscapes. ‘Trees Speak’ relates to the idea of future technologies storing information and data in trees and plants - using them as hard drives – and the idea that Trees communicate collectively.
