New releases and pre-orders 7th of June 2019

Kinkajous are the latest multi national London based cosmic jazz band to have a debut album released on Vinyl and ‘Hidden Lines’ should appeal to fans of Ruby Rushton/Ezra collective etc. Skinny Pelembe also has his debut album on Brownswood. Masterpieces of Modern Soul Vol 5 is another great compilation in this excellent series from Kent. Azymuth”s classic 1977 album ‘Aguia nao come mosca’ gets a welcome reissue on LP, pre-order CD to come in a couple of weeks.

There are some interesting Vinyl reissue LP’s including Barbara Brown’s XL recordings on LP for the first time, plus some great 45’s including the Clark Sisters, and early Jackie Moore and Gil Scott Heron (Blacks & Blues) along with others.


Pre-order for next week the 3 superb and very rare Fable records albums (Starcrost, Steam Heat and Forty Seven times its own weight) on Jazzman which are likely to be in short supply (especially on vinyl). See all the pre-order titles here.

Noel McKoy in store lookback

A big thank you to everybody who came to meet Noel McKoy in the store last Saturday. You can see the picture here. We still have a few signed CD’s which you can order here, plus regular copies here.

I hope that you can join us tomorrow to meet the lovely Natasha Watts who will be in store from 1pm signing copies of her excellent ‘With one hundred birds CD. There is always a great vibe when Natasha is with us.  If you can’t come you can pre-order a signed copy here.
Next sat 15th June we have Tahirah Memory in store signing her brilliant ‘Asha‘ CD.

Radio show

I hope that you enjoyed the show last week, if you missed it you can catch it on the podcast here.
Just to clarify I haven’t stopped doing the show as some people thought, its just Solar radio is no longer broadcasting on Sky. You can catch the show on DAB+ in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton and Norwich or you can hear it on the |Solar radio website and many digital platforms on a smart phone or TV or an internet radio. I will be back on this Sunday at 10 am for another Soul brother selection, I hope that you can join me

have a great weekend
