Some superb releases this week with smooth soul specialist Carmichael Musiclover topping the bill – his ‘The Best Thing Yet’ CD may be just that: A bumper 17 track offering that will please his fans and earn new followers. Moses Boyd follows up his highly acclaimed 2018 set with another bristling melting pot of new UK jazz that is steeped in the vitality of the creative scene at present while Snarky Puppy’s ‘Bill Laurance Trio’s live recording from the world-renowned Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club during the 2018 International Piano Trio Festival makes it to CD.
Rainer Trueby’s ‘Soulgliding’ compilation is a masterclass in curating slow/mid tempo gems in a way that holds the attention – some real jewels on this collection – while we have limited colour vinyl issues of classic albums from Bobby Patterson, Charles Wright/Watts 103rd St Rhythm Band as well as Tyrone Davis’ ‘Can I Change My Mind’.
Michael Kiwanku’s latest album gets the special treatment with a picture disc issue, Cordial strike gold again with three releases this week: the set of largely unreleased gems from Oakland’s ‘Family Of Swede’ and 45s from Sons Of Slum, and Afrodisia. There’s a compilation killer album from the P&P stable, Outta Sight bring us two 45s from Lee Moses and Betty Lavette/Nella Dodds and there are limited 7″ singles from the excellent Kelly Finnegan, and Tall Black Guy. Blair’s soulful disco ‘Nightlife’ also sees a bright reissue on 12″.
See all pre-orders here including our delayed Madcliff 45, Randy Brown, and Tempests 7s as well as a superb new indie-soul spotlight collection Glow Presents Ten Of Diamonds, a 12-track set that features ten acts including Omar, Honey Rochelle and Dave Love among others.
