Review: There have been plenty of retrospectives on the absolutely essential work of Sun Ra and his Arkestra over the years, but trust Strut to go that bit deeper when they elected to focus on the Sun God himself. As the extensive title suggests, this collection places the focus on proceedings in the hands of Marshall Allen, the longest serving member of the Arkestra and current band leader. The results mean In The Orbit Of Ra feels a whole lot more personal and indepth, with over 25 years worth of Sun Ra-lead music documented. It's all been fully remastered from the original tapes and is pretty much the most conclusive introduction to the work of this pioneer one could hope for. In addition to the 13 track double vinyl set, this release also includes the double CD edition which includes a further 7 Ra gems!

Review: Thanks to an upsurge in interest in zouk, the synthesizer-heavy tropical style that emerged from the French Antilles in the early 1980s, reissues of superb but hard to find gems from the style's original heyday are becoming increasingly popular. This one from Strut Records is a peach. Originally released in 1988, "Las Pale" is the sole album from Feeling Kreyol, a female trio from Guadeloupe assembled and produced by local studio buffs Darius Denon and Frankie Brumier. It remains a brilliantly effervescent and colourful set, with the trio adding strong and attractive to distinctively tropical drum machine rhythms, shimmering synths, kaleidoscopic melodies and jangling guitars. In other words, it's a giddy blast of electronic tropical brilliance. Don't sleep.

Review: Jazz has always been as much about great collaborations as anything else and that is very much the case with the modern scene. Proving that is Flock, a new coming together of five talented musicians Bex Burch from Vula Viel, Maisha's Al MacSween, Sarathy Korwar, Dan "Danalogue" Leavers and Collocutor's Tamar Osborn. They got together for the first time in March 2020 for a Boiler Room show and some memorable streams during lockdown. Strut Records were listening in and managed to get them in the studio together to try something fresh. The resulting improvised sounds focus on "breathing and listening to each other", explains Bex Burch. It makes for a wild, innovative ride.

Review: Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids' Shaman! is a bold and adventurous new record. It is a study in jazz that takes cues from myriad different sounds and scenes. Sub-Saharan jazz, Afrobeat, free-jazz, Afro-Cuban music, spoken word, and more all colour in the tracks which have been written by a large cast of musicians. The album was recorded din London and features Pyramids co-founder Simmons on flute, longtime band member Sandra Poindexter on violin, plus guitar from Bobby Cobb, and three new members from Europe in Jack Yglesias, Ruben Ramon Ramos, and Gioele Pagliaccia. It makes for an expressive but introspective world that draws you deep into its midst, where you will be oh so happy to get lost.

  10. Naked Lunch - "Slipping Again"
  11. SPK - "Metal Dance"
Review: Having recently mined the post-punk/new wave vaults of Factory Records' 12" releases, it's little surprise that the latest Strut Records release shines more light on the clanking, far-sighted world of the 1980s' most revolutionary genres - namely industrial, post-punk and EBM. This time, former Output boss, Playgroup man and all-round hipster Trevor Jackson is at the helm. His two-disc selection touches on many different strands, from bleak synthesizer jams and crunchy punk-funk to twisted industrial disco, mutant electrofunk (Nitzer Ebb's "I've Lost Control") and almighty percussive workouts (SPK's thrilling "Metal Dance"). Highly recommended.

Review: Late Philadelphia reedman Byard Lancaster's lesser known classic 'My Pure Joy' was recorded for the Black Fire label in 1992. Backed by a band made up of fellow Philly musicians such as percussionist Keno Speller and Baba Robert Crowder, other influential figures like Tunde Kuboye also featured and help to lend it its richly musical, afro drenched sound. Full grooves, trademark flutes and plenty of spiritual, positive vibes abound throughout the tracks which surfaced as one of the label's final CD releases in 1995 and has never before appeared on vinyl.

Review: This is a special sampler 12" taken from the Various Artists compilation Defend Your Planet that Avoidant Records put out. It features a heavyweight crew of electro mainstays, first of which are The Advent & Zein Ferreira. Their 'Defend Your Plane' is a turbo powered cosmic assault with skewed synths and high speed drums. Assembler Code's 'Line Of Sight' doesn't let up, powering on through sheet metal snares and juddering drum programming and then man like Carl Finlow layers in prickly melodies, dark sci-fi energy and booming bass. Analogue master Versalife shits things down with the shadowy 'SH09.'

Review: The back catalogue of Jimmy Gray's Black Fire record label is full of jazz gems, though few are more sought after than the sole album from spiritual jazz ensemble Lon Moshe & Southern Freedom Arkestra, Love Is Where The Spirit Lies. Recorded over an 18-month period, the set was initially released on vinyl - in small numbers - in 1977 and briefly returned to stores on CD in 1993. This is the first vinyl edition since, with the tracks now stretched over two slabs of wax to ensure a louder cut. Musically, much of what's on offer is sublime, with Moshe and his talented collaborators delivering spiritual jazz cuts that variously draw influence from soul-jazz, jazz-funk, free-jazz, modal and heavy Latin jazz.

Review: Recorded in New York in 1966, Miriam Makeba's "Pata Pata" - her first for the legendary Reprise Records imprint - has long been considered one of the most important and influential South African albums of all time. Strut certainly thinks so and has offered up a "definitive version" that contains both mono and stereo mixes of the album, alongside new sleeve notes that tell the singer's remarkable story in vivid detail. Musically the set is rooted in jazz, but also incorporates sounds, rhythms and instrumentation not only reflective of Makeba's home country, but also nods to American soul, Latin rhythms and calypso (the latter showcasing the influence of her mentor, Harry Belafonte).

Review: Strut present an exclusive collaboration between two jazz greats, multireedist Bennie Maupin and percussionist Adam Rudolph, on Symphonic Tone Poem For Brother Yusef, originally commissioned by the 2020 Angel City Jazz festival in Claremont. This long yet impressive album weaves across a sonic landscape in five movements, blending electronics, sax and voice and binding them all together via the deft use of intervals and improv. A strong and moving debut from the clear clarinetist and the percussive polymath.

Review: Second time around for Joey Negro and Sean P's peerless collection of post-punk era New York club cuts, a compilation that proved hugely influential when it was first released way back in 2000. The track listing strangely omits one track present on the original release (the full 16-minute version of Steve Miller Band's "Macho City"), but otherwise it's a faithful reproduction. Highlights come thick and fast throughout, from the eccentric electrofunk of Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" and P-funk influenced strut of Material's "Over And Over", to the skittish jazz-goes-dub disco bustle of Don Cherry's "I Walk" and the low-slung percussive voodoo of Nicky Siano's "Move". The undisputed master of NYC leftfield disco, Arthur Russell, is represented via cuts from Loose Joints, Dinosaur and Indian Ocean.

Review: Idris Ackamoor led The Pyramids from the early 70s, wielding his sax into parts unknown and creating some definitive Afrofuturist works in the process. At the truly spiritual end of the soul jazz spectrum, the concise catalogue of The Pyramids spans a short space of time but reaches far and wide. Now Strut have gathered together those early iconic works and remastered the three original LPs Lalibela, King of Kings and Birth / Speed / Merging, presenting them in a box set alongside an additional first-pressing of their live session for KQED TV in 1975. Packaged with a 12-page booklet featuring extended interviews with the group and a wealth of unseen photos, this is the perfect document of a groundbreaking force in spiritual jazz.

Review: 1973's Egypt Strut, a rare album from jazz bandleader Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band (a collective of musicians who were then serving with him in the Egyptian army), has long been considered one of global jazz's "crown jewels" - an inspired, hard-to-find set that offers arguably the greatest fusion of Afro-American jazz, Arabian music and Sun Ra style spirituality ever committed to wax. This CD reissue has been marketed as the "definitive" version of the set. It expands on the original recording by adding eight previously unreleased recordings from the sessions that led to the album, as well as liner notes that tell the whole remarkable story of Egypt Strut's concept and creation.

Review: Those who dig disco reggae - and specifically sun splashed, dub-wise covers of disco classics - should already be aware of the brilliant Risco Connection, a late-'70s outfit from Toronto helmed by former Studio One drummer Joe Isaacs. Original copies of the band's various singles and EPs have long been very tricky to find, so this first 'official' retrospective is more than welcome. It not only showcases the full-length vocal versions of the band's key singles - including killer covers of McFadden & Whitehead's 'Ain't No Stppping Us Now', Diana Ross's 'It's My House' and Inner Life's 'I'm Caught Up' - but also a swathe of alternative 'version' mixes, dubs and lesser-known original compositions. It's brilliant, beguiling and joyously life-affirming.

Review: Risco Connection were the perfect reggae-disco crossover act, founded by Studio 1 sticksman Joe Isaacs after he moved to Canada in the late 60s. Searching for a sweet spot between the plush orchestration of disco and the upbeat shuffle of rocksteady, he embarked on a series of covers with a strong cast behind him, taking on the likes of Chic's 'Good Times', 'It's My House' and a version of 'Ain't No Stopping Us Now' which became a staple at David Mancuso's mythical Loft parties. This collection gathers together all the singles - vocals, dubs and all - and comes packaged with an interview with Isaacs and liner notes, restored and remastered and sounding better than ever.

Review: Given the stone-cold-classic status of Patrice Rushen's disco-era recordings on Elektra, it's little surprise to see Strut offering up this superb retrospective of that key period in her career. Naturally, the big club hits are present - "Feels So Real (Can't Let Go)", "Haven't You Heard", "Number One" and "Forget Me Nots" - but it's the quality of the lesser celebrated cuts and album tracks that most impresses. For proof, check the sharp horns and good grooves of "Look Up (Extended Version)", the breezy boogie bounce of "Never Gonna Give You Up (Won't Let You be)" and the electric piano solo-laden seductiveness of "Remind Me (LP Version)". There's naturally plenty of sweet slow jams to savour, too, those to our ears these pale in comparison to Rushen's dancefloor-focused output.

Review: Strut continues to mine the back catalogue of disco and boogie-era soul star Patrice Rushen with a much-needed reissue of her 1980 set "Posh". Produced by Rushen alongside Charles Mims Jr, the set not only contains a string of fine club cuts - think "Never Gonna Give You Up", the bustling and joyous "Look Up" (an extended version of which is tagged on to the end of the CD as a great bonus) and "The Funk Won't Let You Down") - but also boasts some of the most exciting and interesting arrangements in the legendary disco diva's discography. It's musically vibrant, too, with the assembled players delivering killer grooves (slap-bass abounds), punchy horns, seductive orchestration and heaps of rush-inducing solos.

Review: By the time Patrice Rushen released Straight From The Heart in 1982, she was undoubtedly at the top of her game. The set remains one of the finest albums of the post-disco/boogie era, offering an enticing mix of genuine club classics (see 'Forget Me Nots', which was later heavily sampled by Will Smith on 'Men in Black', 'Number One', 'Breakout' and 'I'm Tired of Being Alone') and overlooked slow hams ('Where There Is Love', 'If Only' and the seductive 'Remind Me'). This expanded, double vinyl edition of the album is probably the definitive version, featuring as it does extended 12" versions of the set's most revered moments, not to mention a louder, more DJ-friendly cut.

Review: Shut has been busy with a great series of reissues of Sun Ra's historic recordings in Egypt. All good things must come to an end, though, and so it does with The Sun Ra Arkestra meets Salah Ragab in Egypt which was recorded with help from the Cairo Jazz Band and first put out back in 1983 on Greek label Praxis. The Arkestra first met Salah Ragab at the home of Goethe Institut ex-pat Hartmut Geerken when they toured the island in December 1971 and later bonded again in 1983. It was then that they got together for these recordings where they played Ragab compositions, 'Egypt Strut' and 'Dawn' amongst others.

Review: Politically charged Motor City jazz collective Tribe has undergone something of a career rebirth in the last few years. The releases they played, produced and put out on their Tribe Records imprint in the '70s are rightly revered, but the truth is that they've made equally as good music since getting back into the studio in 1990 - as this brilliant retrospective from Strut proves. The ten-track set contains both released material and previously unheard recordings, with highlights including a fantastic new version of "Juba" featuring Harold McKinney and his "McKinfolk" musicians, a daring new version of Tribe member Phil Ranelin's "He The One We All Knew" and the spiritual rallying cry that is "Marcus Garvey".

Review: The Strut label have done it again, people. Known for digging up some of the most obscure and interesting material from around the globe - both musically and culturally - the label sits alongside the likes of London's Honest Jon's Records in its ability to pull out unheard material from thin air. This time, we have a compilation of Mauritius' Sega music, a local kind of blues music that has its roots in traditional African music started by slaves of plantations who were looking for greener pastures. The 60's saw the explosion of the genre, and throughout this collection of tunes, you'll hear influences from just about any genre across the soul spectrum. There's psych, Afro beat, Ethiopian funk, and Fela-style chanting. It's a truly remarkable release, and it comes warmly recommended. This could well be up there in the top ten for 2016's world charts... and it's only February!

Review: A staple selection from Strut since its Nigeria 70 collection, this momentous piece of musical history dates back to 1979 when iconic vocalist Shina brought together the likes of Biddy Wright, Fred Fisher, Saliu Alabi and more decorated Nigerian musicians for a one-off supergroup. This epic, slippery freeform 11 minute piece of pure Afrofunk was the timeless result. Having enjoyed a handful of reissues and returns in its near 40 year life, this is the first time it's been remastered and delivered with all its original artwork and a full list of credits. Perfect to the very detail.
