Matthew Halsall’s two 2008/2009 albums have been released for the first time on vinyl in remastered and remixed form with bonus cuts and document his earliest recordings with flautist Chip Wickham, saxophonist Nat Birchall, harpist Rachael Gladwin, bassist Gavin Barras and drummer Gaz Hughes. These two albums are an essential addition to fans of Halsall’s work and of spiritual jazz too. Snarky Puppy keyboardist Bill Laurence’s stunning live performance in Cologne is released on vinyl and CD while Incognito mark almost 40 years in the business with a typically joyous, well produced set full of polished, catchy tunes.
Michael Kiwanuka’s self titled set has been quoted as ‘the best album of the decade’ – it’s certainly a bold, powerful piece of work: check out the clips. Terri Lynne Carrington teams up with Social Science to deliver an emotionally charged set often politcially charged numbers, there’s a great collection of underground disco and boogie from Peter Brown’s P&P related stable of imprints and two hard to find albums see a release in the form of the Optimistic’s self titled, solitary album from 1970 and Caesar Frazier’s 1975 album, imaginitvely titled ’75. Kyle Eastwood and Katherine Penfold also have new releases to check too.
