Coming soon on Pure Pleasure - which is usually a guarantee of excellent mastering and pressing quality - is this masterpiece of the "spiritual jazz" sound. Contains the epic "Prince of Peace".

Ultra-talented pianist Ashley Henry released his debut 2LP today. If you liked his Ashley Henry's 5ive and Easter EPs then you'll love this.

Release schedule is up and running after Christmas and the New Year.

First up is this very limited pressing of one of the finest LPs ever released on the Strata East label. If you have even a passing interest in jazz then buy this and impress your less hip friends.

The track titled ‘John Coltrane’ is a homage, maybe even a greatest bits pastiche of the man’s music, but has to be one of the most downright enjoyable 5 minutes in the whole Jazz canon. The motif, the build and release, the chanting! - fantastic track.

A couple of newly released jazz nuggets worthy of your hard earned.

BBE's Volume 2 compilation of Japanese jazz. Will be in my top 3 compilation albums of the year for sure.

Following his homage to King Tubby era reggae with the excellent "Sounds Almighty" Nat Birchall returns to his jazz roots with this musical tribute to Yusuf Lateef.

"Peace Treaty" by Nathan Davis was originally recorded in Paris in 1965 and cut for the tiny SFP label. It's a high quality mixture of soul jazz and modal styles and French label Sam Records has just re-released it. Remastered from the original stereo master tapes and pressed on 180gm vinyl by Pallas in Germany this is one of finest sounding jazz (or any other for that matter) LPs I own - the sound quality is insanely good. A limited run of 2000 so don't hang about of you want one.

Good news for lovers of Blue Note jazz on vinyl like me. The beautifully packaged and sounding "Tone Poet" all analogue remaster series is continuing into 2021 and 2022. Release schedule here: http://www.bluenote.com/2021-2022-tone-poet-vinyl-series-line-up/

If you're not averse to 7" singles then the Wallen Bink label in association with Saba/MPS has just released a series of four limited edition "audiophile" 45s all analogue mastered at Abbey Road Studios and pressed at Pallas Group, Germany. Sound quality is excellent as are the pressings. A bit on the expensive side but I'm such a sucker for stuff like this.

Have only just found this thread...(its an age thing)  Sure I will find some new & interesting stuff to listen to.

Should mention that if the "out there" folk are interested, that there are 2 Newish Sun Ra releases that imo are of his best remastered efforts. Done with real care.  I like the  Exotica album the best & there is also one called The Space Age Is Here To Stay which focuses on mainly vocal cuts featuring June Tyson.  The artwork is great on both Lps reminding me of the early sci-fi mags.  Marvellous.    :)

And also this "deluxe" 4 LP box set re-release of Lanquidity on the Strut label and probably one of the more accessible examples of Sun Ra's oeuvre.

Your right there, cos if folks ask about Sun Ra or I recommend him to someone, I point them to Lanquidity first & maybe the mixed compo by the DJ I cant remember right now  :)  I will certainly be checking out Idris Ackamoor.  M.

That'll be the Gilles Peterson compilation from 2017 and there was a similar Marshall Allen one from 2014 both on Strut.

Not music related but the fashionable amongst you (I know there aren't many but anyhoo 😋) may be interested to know that Uniqlo are selling a rather stylish range of "Blue Note" inspired t-shirts for the princely sum of £12.90 each.

Had a look but unfortunately you have to be very small or very big to buy one  :|
