Review: Veteran producer, selector and all round champion of impeccable grooves Alex Attias is back on BBE with a second volume of his "Lillygood Party" collection. These are some seriously tasteful jams skirting house but with an emphasis on soul. Peven Everett sounds resplendent on Stacy Kidd's "How Bad I Want Ya" while The Elements Of Life's "Children Of The World" is a soaring slice of jazz funk strapped to a smooth house beat. There's even Pharoah Sanders jamming his sax over a peppy rhythm section and spiritually charged house meanderings from Universal Tongues featuring Elle. It's a collection that surprises and satisfies at every turn.

  14. Week End Millionnaire - "Exit"
Review: A couple of years ago French crate digger Charles Bals invited us to "Club Meduse", an imaginary Riviera club where the music was always obscure, European and decidedly mid-80s. Here he opens the doors once more, delivering an open-air friendly soundtrack heavy on rare private press gems, overlooked beauties and the kind of cuts that most would consider Balearic (even if they may have been more popular in Italy and France). Highlights are plentiful, from the eccentric instrumental of Voyage De Charme's fretless bass-powered "Hotel Des Savanes" and the soft-focus, flamenco-tinged bliss of Claude Miss' "Paco Ye Adama", to the sun-kissed jazz-funk/synth-pop fusion of Marc Et Frank's "Cap'tain Coke" and the reggae-zouk quirkiness of Les 36 15's "Zoulous! (Remix)".

  1. AC
  2. DC
Review: The latest release on admirable London venue Cafe Oto's Otoruku label is welcome return to action from improvisational jazz trio Decoy and regular collaborator Joe McPhee (pocket trumpet, alto sax, voice), whose previous collaborative album landed seven years ago. The two tracks on "AC/DC" were recorded live at Cafe Oto last May and take the form of two lengthy free-jazz improvisations. The first set ("AC") moved from challenging and frenetic free jazz to heavyweight weirdo soul - all thickset grooves and impromptu solos - while the second ("DC") sees the quartet move from creepy experimentalism to stoned funk over the course of 40 mesmerizing minutes.

  1. Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra
Review: Two years ago Mats Gustafsson gathered the Fire! Orchestra for a very special performance at Krakow's Sacruym Profanum festival: a rare interpretation of Krystztof Penderecki's "Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra", a piece which had only been played live once before (in 1971, with an ensemble of musicians that included Don Cherry and Kenny Wheeler). Gustafsson's version of the creepy, subtly changing piece differs in a number of ways from the original - at 40 minutes, it's significant longer, allowing the inherent creepiness of the music and vocalizations to become more apparent - but remains largely faithful to Penderecki's score and selection of instruments. It makes for breathtaking and at times surprisingly alluring listening despite the piece's challenging nature, suggesting this is a recording that all serious jazz fans should own.

Review: After the wild revelations of the first Irreversible Entanglements album back in 2017, this vital new force in jazz and beat poetry returns to International Anthem with a new set. Once again the interplay between the players and lyricist Camae Ayewa is electric, not least on the fraught title track. The subject matter weighs heavy but all too familiar - racial tension and inequality in America given an urgent voice by Ayewa, and perfectly accented by Keir Neuringer's saxophone, Aquiles Navarro's trumpet, Luke Stewart's double bass and Tcheser Holmes drums. This is essential stuff, both in message and in sound.

Review: Like many of the artists on the Daptone roster, the James Hunter Six sound like an echo of a bygone age. While the outfit hails from the UK, they genuinely sound like a black American vocal group from a time when rhythm and blues and doo-wop were mutating into soul. "Nick Of Time", their fourth full-length excursion, is every bit as sweet, soulful, joyous and unashamedly revivalist as any of its similarly impressive predecessors, with highlights including "Who's Fooling Who", "Missing In Action", the wonderfully bluesy and up-tempo "Ain't Goin' Up In One Of Those Things" and confirmed dancefloor workout "Can't Help Myself".

Review: Astonishingly, eight years have passed since NYC soul man Jose James released the brilliant "No Beginning No End" album on Blue Note. He's released plenty of other impressive sets since, though few quite as effervescent and sonically perfect. This belated sequel is therefore hotly anticipated. Happily we can report that it's superb, with James offering up a suite of super-strong soul songs that variously join the dots between neo-soul, summery sing-alongs (see the catchy "You Know What It Do"), jazz-funk, flash-fired hip-hop-soul, slow jams and the kind of slick but bustling soul-jazz gems that he's always done so well. It's still only March, but we have no doubt this will be one of the soul albums of the year.

Review: For anyone with even the smallest interest in gospel music and its relationship with black American dance music, Joaquin 'Joe' Clausell's "Praise" series of mix CDs should be essential listening. Volume six, subtitled "A Prayer For Peace, Love & Wisdom", is every bit as inspired as its predecessor, with Clausell moving between traditional choral gospel music, gospel soul, and soul-jazz, deep house and disco (including Crown Heights Affair's incredible "Say A Prayer") featuring suitably righteous lyrics. To tie the whole thing together, Clausell has also included a number of inspirational and thought-provoking spoken word samples taken from recordings of preachers and black community leaders. It's a brilliant touch.

Review: Ethio-jazz legend Hailu Mergia is arguably one of Awesome Tapes From Africa's biggest success stories. After discovering that he was now driving a taxi in Washington, D.C, label boss Brian Shimkovitz reissued some of his old recordings before encouraging the keyboardist and accordion player to make new music. Mergia has been on the rise ever since. "Yene Mircha" is his second new album for ATFM and was recorded with a cast list of guest musicians, including mesenqo player Setegn Atanew, vocalist Tsehay Kassa, and saxophonist Moges Habte. It's surprisingly musically diverse, drawing together elements of jazz-funk, ethio-jazz, more up-tempo Ethiopian dance music and, perhaps most surprisingly of all, both dub and reggae.

"It's Only Us", their fifth album and first for five years, is another superb set, with the band's now trademark sound being expanded to include songs that make extensive use of sweeping strings, softer and groovier arrangements and lyrics that tackle a variety of weighty personal, political and social subjects.

This new edition of the album also comes with two additional tracks - the cool and smooth "Pipe Stem" and the bright and snappy "I Know You Don't Want Me No More", making this one for completists as well as newcomers to the might of the late, great Idris Muhammad.

Review: From Angola via Belgium and Manchester, Nazar follows 2018's Hyperdub rough kuduro debut "Enclave" with this immense multi-faceted body of work that analyses the Angolan war of independence, its atrocities and effects on its displaced people and his family. From the portrait on the cover of his rebel general father to many of the samples and stories, Nazar paints an unnerving picture that ranges from the militant drum shots fired on "Diverted" to the eerie juxtaposition of "FIM-92 Stinger" where a surface-to-air missile launcher gives it name to one of the album's most soulful, touching moments. Elsewhere we hear voices of his family on "Mother", we're fired up with gritty, unapologetic universal question "Why" and left asking more questions on the fractured finale "End Of Guerrilla". Much deeper than an album, this is a document, musically, politically, emotionally. Nazar and Hyperdub have created something truly unique.

Review: Since forming in 1987, experimental jazz trio The Necks has released an incredible number of albums, many of which take jazz in thrilling new directions. "Three", the Australian band's latest full-length excursion, is a terrific example of their off-kilter approach. You see, the music is not as wild or occasionally discordant as improvised free-jazz; instead, the trio utilizes odd, often densely layered percussion sounds, processed noises and creepy aural textures alongside the kind of piano motifs and double bass parts often found in more traditional jazz releases. There's a real post-rock sensibility to our ears, despite there being no evidence of rock present at all. The three tracks are all 20-minute plus epics that slowly unfurl as you listen, offering you a chance to immerse yourself in the music.

Review: Ratgrave is just one of the many projects Max Graef is involved in, on this occasion with Julius Conrad. The project first surfaced on Funkineven's Apron Records in 2018, and now it's back on Black Focus for another trip through oddball electronics aplenty with a healthy dose of soul and funk poured in for good measure. From the catchy sing along "World Aid" to the dusty boogie hybrid of "Instant Toothpaste", this is an album crafted by a duo with serious chops that doesn't take itself too seriously. Get down, get funky, get weird.

Review: It would be fair to say that the latest edition in BBE's 'J-Jazz Masterclass' series of reissues is exceedingly rare. In fact, when it first appeared on Smile Records in 1976, only 100 copies of Hideto Saski-Toshiyuki Sekine Quartet's "Stop Over" were ever produced. The album's rarity is impressive, but it's the quality of the all-acoustic set of hard-bop workouts that makes it an essential purchase. As you might expect, there's plenty to set the pulse racing throughout, from the high-octane rush of opener "Carole's Garden", where dizzying piano solos catch the ear, to the similarly hectic and arguably even more rush-inducing "Stop Over" (a ten minute cut of epic proportions), via the sweet, sparse and contemplative "Soultrane".

Review: In 2016 saxophonist and clarinetist Shabaka Hutchings established the "Ancestors" collective of South African musicians to perform live and record debut album "Wisdom Of Elders", a journey into the spiritual and avant-garde side of jazz inspired in part by the struggles of previous generations of black musicians. Four years on, the Sons Of Kemet and The Comet Is Coming member has reassembled the collective for album number two, "We Are Sent Here By History". It treads similar musical territory to its similarly essential predecessor, with Hutchings and his South African collaborators presenting tracks that, in his words, "meditate on the fact of our coming extinction as a species". While the music is nowhere near as doom-laden and miserable as that may suggest - it's very entertaining, thoughtful and spiritually involved - as albums go "We Are Sent Here By History" is certainly hard hitting.

Review: Tireless diggers and world class reissue merchants Mr Bongo have done it again with this one. They discovered The Star Beams when one of their tracks was on a Disco Calypso compilation, then went on a mission to track down the original anymore material from the band, who turned out to be based in South Africa instead of the Carribean. The resulting record is a real gem - disco, funk and jazz all get chewed up and spat out across four fantastically timeless cuts of dance floor dynamite. "Disco Stomp" in particular you might already know as Theo Parrish has been dropping in his sets for time.

Review: The Tamikrest collective is arguably the best-known musical project to emerge yet from the Tuareg people, a nomadic community of "pastoralist peoples" who inhabit the Saharan interior of North Africa. "Tamotait" is their sixth studio album and undoubtedly one of the strongest yet. Their sound is undeniably contemporary, with ear-catching electric guitars and electrified versions of more traditional North African instruments being joined by ear-catching group vocals in their native language, traditional rhythms (mostly played on a rock style drum kit) and nods towards Peter Green style electric blues, Turkish psych-rock and even axe-wielding, punky indie-rock.

Review: Those who've discovered Jimi Tenor in the last two decades would be well advised to check out this fine early retrospective from the eccentric Finnish musician. It focuses on the early years of his career (1994-2001), when he was known for serving up a bizarre but brilliant take on jazz, easy listening and lounge music - sometimes mixed with contemporary electronic sounds - for both Sahko and Warp Records. The collection contains a number of skewed, must-have late '90s underground hits (see "Outta Space", "Year Of The Apocalypse", "Sugardaddy" and the wonderfully sleazy "Take Me Baby") but also some lesser-known gems, experimental outings and even a track made with the Riga Symphony Orchestra.

Review: 50 years in and still going strong, Tower Of Power are back with a new set that shows off their immense skill in the field of jazz funk. The talent spilling out of this collective is palpable at all times, but no more so than on this album's title track "Step Up", a high pressure groover where every player gets their moment in the spotlight. This special double vinyl edition is packed full of big hitters, from sizzling party tracks to passionate balladry. We'd recommend the fired up flex-out of "Look In My Eyes", where the tempo stays up and the groove remains urgent throughout.

Review: This fine compilation dives into the vast archives of Uzelli Kaset, a Turkish record label founded in Frankfurt in 1971 that later become one of Turkey's leading music companies. It focuses specifically on tracks made between 1976 and '84 using the electric saz, an updated electrified version of the country's most-used traditional string instrument. Musically, it's a hugely vibrant hotchpotch of exotic, late 20th century updates of Turkish folk songs, psych-rock, and Persian popular music from the period. Intoxicating, exotic, otherworldly and packed to the rafters with genuinely quality cuts, it's an eye-opening and hugely entertaining compilation that you'll want to return to time and again.
