Review: Hungarian producer and keyboardist Szabolcs Bognar, known as Abase, explores cosmic unity through his music, now based in Berlin at the forefront of the city's burgeoning jazz scene. His latest album, Awakening, released by Analogue Foundation and Oshu Records, reflects a period of personal milestones and introspection. Recorded swiftly at Berlin's Brewery Studios, it blends influences from Afrobeat, Hungarian folk, Yoruba rhythms, and more, infused with Coltrane-esque improvisation. Tracks like 'Destruction Everywhere' and 'Menidaso' merge spiritual jazz with Afrobeat, featuring vocalist Eric Owusu. 'Awakening' marks a profound musical journey, emphasising unity, dialogue, and self-reflection in a transcendent listening experience.

Dancing In The Dark (4:07)
Review: Cannonball Adderley's Somethin' Else is a masterpiece that features the peak of his lyrical invention and the superb interplay between him, Miles Davis, and the rest of the ensemble. Originally released in 1958, this album exemplifies the essence of hard bop with its gorgeous blues lines and taut, focused groove. The title track and 'One for Daddy-O' highlight the exquisite craftsmanship of both horn players, while the rhythm section, featuring Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey, provides a solid foundation for their improvisations. Adderley's alto saxophone shines, particularly on 'Dancing in the Dark,' where his romantic improvisation evokes the spirit of Charlie Parker and Johnny Hodges. What sets Somethin' Else apart is its clarity and directness. Each note and phrase is carefully considered, contributing to the overall narrative of the music. Davis, known for his minimalist approach, outlines the themes with precision, allowing for a common understanding to emerge among the musicians. Somethin' Else is a timeless record that continues to inspire listeners with its beauty and depth.

Come On & Groove It (9:27)
Review: Whereas most record label prefer to revel in the idea of the finished project, a smaller cohort still prefers to play up the idea of the cutting room floor, the dubplate, the manuscript, the demo. Whilst dubstep might've revived the dubplates trend for a more contemporary listener, US imprint Disco Dub Demos (how apt) know all too well that of the earliest forms of this "rawness fetishism" in music emerged from disco. Here the label-born moniker African Duplate lays down four ultra-utilitarian tools that shoot squarely for the essence of - they name it - 'Afro Disco'. On the B-side also comes a worthy, somewhat haunting flip track, 'Come On & Groove It'.

Salty Road Dogs Victory Anthem
Salty Road Dogs Victory Anthem (1-sided 7" flexi-disc)
Cat: IARC 69SI. Rel: 11 Jul 24
Salty Road Dogs Victory Anthem (4:46)
Review: 'Salty Road Dogs Victory Anthem' by Alabaster DePlume, composed live during a Vienna soundcheck and later recorded in London, emerges as a brilliant show to the resilience and creativity of the group. This track was birthed amidst the intense schedule of a demanding tour following the success of DePlume's album Gold. The piece opens with a robust, swirling saxophone, leading into a triumphant four-minute crescendo. DePlume is joined by a dynamic ensemble, featuring Rozi Plain on bass, Momoko Gill on drums, and Conrad Singh on guitar. Together, they craft a rousing homage to the sheer act of living, celebrating the victory of existence. This anthem resonates with a profound message of self-permission and triumph, regardless of external recognition. The music, much like his sentiment, is bold and unapologetic, encouraging listeners to embrace their victories, no matter how small.

Review: Yemenite music in Israel is a uniquely Middle-Eastern style born from the immigration of Yemenite Jews to Israel. Initially religious and ceremonial, the music featured separate male and female songs accompanied by drumming on olive oil tin cans. Aharon Amram, born in Sana'a, Yemen, immigrated to Israel as a child and became a central figure in this genre. From the 1960s onward, he released numerous records on Sounds of Yemen in which he blended traditional religious songs with his own secular compositions, Western electric instruments and modern arrangements. This double LP showcases Amram's diverse catalogue and undying influence on contemporary Mizrahi.

Review: Ana Frango Eletrico's first ever reissue, Little Electric Chicken Heart, follows up 2023's most recent record Me Chama De Gato Que Eu Sou Sua. Surfacing after Mr. Bongo were met with a string of requests to reissue the album not long after its original release in 2019, we're once more compelled to consider the album's merits and what makes the enjoyment of it tick. More of an establishment of style and talent than an exploration of a concept, the album is noted for its fusion of chamber pop, rock and samba, across a vintage palette that defies any overarching categorisation.

As a member of The Roots and a highly sought-after musician, Angry brings his classical training in gospel and jazz to the forefront, infusing his music with pop sensibilities. Tracks like 'Nebula' and 'Musique Mecanique III' demonstrate his ability to create immersive experiences that transcend traditional jazz boundaries. With its cinematic quality and storytelling abilities, One leaves listeners in awe, delivering a mind-blowing musical adventure. Whether you're a jazz aficionado or simply curious, this album is a must-listen for its innovative approach and sheer brilliance.

Unicorn Rider (4:04)
Review: There's not a lot of information out there about Arcade of Serpe, so let's skip the back story and cut to the chase. If that's really an appropriate turn of phrase here. Nothing about Cave Adventure feels rushed. Nothing. In fact, it's quite the opposite, opening on dub-wise bass and playful organs, the atmosphere - somewhere between lackadaisical, come down, BBQ, and psychedelic - subtly rises, although not to a crescendo as much as a delicate fade out after a few minutes strutting to the funk-laden groove. Flip it to find more explorations in the sonic ether, with 'Unicorn Rider' smoothly stepping out into a surreal track that uses space and emptiness to accentuate the noises that are there, which mirror, if not directly reflect, the opening title tune. It's quiet, but you won't forget it in a hurry.

Review: Verve Records is set to release Louis in London, the final major performance by the legendary Louis Armstrong. Recorded live at the BBC just weeks after Armstrong topped the UK charts with 'What A Wonderful World,' this 13-track collection is made available on coloured vinyl, capturing Armstrong's vibrant energy as he performs with The All Stars on July 2, 1968. The collection spans his career, featuring everything from W.C. Handy's 'Ole Miss'' to hits like 'Mack the Knife' and 'Hello, Dolly!' This session, broadcast on September 22, 1968, on BBC TV's Show Of The Week - Louis Armstrong, was Armstrong's last significant performance. Armstrong cherished this recording, sharing it with friends and visitors, and now, more than five decades later, it's finally being released officially. With extensive liner notes by Ricky Riccardi, Armstrong's biographer, this album continues Armstrong's legacy of spreading joy and reminding us of the enduring beauty of his music.

Recorded live at the BBC in July 2, 1968 - weeks after the artist broke the charts with 'What A Wonderful World', which has persisted in the popular sphere most notably due to its infamous inclusion in the Toy Story repertoire - this 13-track performance also hears stellar renditions of strong-armed Armstrong greats such as 'Hello, Dolly!', all performed with his renowned band The All-Stars.

Review: Roy Ayers' debut album on Polydor marks a pivotal moment in his musical journey, steering away from traditional jazz towards a vibrant fusion of funk and soul. Ubiquity has Ayers' transition to infectious grooves and sun-drenched textures that resonate with both depth and accessibility. This album succeeds with mid-tempo instrumentals like 'Pretty Brown Skin' and 'The Painted Desert,' which unfold with cinematic richness and psychedelic allure. Backed by a stellar ensemble including bassist John Williams, keyboardist Harry Whitaker, and drummer Alphonso Mouzon, Ayers delivers standout tracks like 'Can You Dig It' and Nat Adderley's 'Hummin' in the Sun,' foreshadowing the expansive funk landscapes he would later explore. Ubiquity stands as a definitive classic and shines a light on Ayers' innovative spirit and enduring influence in shaping the funk genre.

Review: Rewind to 1975, Brazilian supergroup Azymuth hit their richest creative vein with this self-titled full-length. Just as the band remain so themselves, this is still hugely relevant and ridiculously on-point considering it's 40 years on the clock. Proof can be found on every track from the sedative harmonic charms of the opener "Linha Do Horizonte", the raw slap bass funk, velvet keys and soaring synths on "Seems Like This" and the frenetic, almost techy mentality of "Wait For My Turn". An essential addition to any collection, this would have blown minds to pieces back in 1975.

Review: With 'breaking' making its debut in the 2024 Paris Olympics, it seems an apt time to go back to where it all began and showcase some of the music that first made break-dancers move in the early years of hip-hop culture. Soul Jazz Records clearly agrees, hence this two-disc retrospective of early 'breaker' favourites curated by Arthur Baker - a man who's productions and remixes soundtracked many dancefloor battles in the early 80s. It's a suitably strong selection all told, with dusty funk, soul and funk-rock favourites (Johnny Bristol, James Brown, The Jimmy Castor Bunch, Spanky Wilson) being joined by disco-funk jams (Herman Kelly and Life), extra-percussive workouts (Manu Dibango, Mongo Santamaria, Candido) and a smattering of key Baker productions (Afrika Bambaata and Soul Sonic Force's 'Planet Rock' and his own infectious 'Breakers Revenge').

First up, 'I Believe in Miracles' is an overwhelming take on the Jackson Sisters classic with plenty of happy Latin vibes and rumba funk rhythms. Flip it over for a more abstract version of McFadden and Whitehead's seminal 'Ain't No Stoping Us Now' which is a soulful disco number packed with sunshine.

Review: Previously unreleased, Joe Bataan (real name Bataan Nitollano) recorded the bulk of the material making up Drug Story in 1972. This new, highly limited box set hears seven revered, rarely-heard gems of Latin jazz, deep soul, raucous boogaloo, and heavy salsa by the legend, most of which were largely salvaged from his very own self-run Ghetto Records vaults. Drug Story was inspired by true events, and hears Bataan croon graciously over themes of destitution, lost family members and friends, and addiction. One of three definitive reissues of Bataan's greatest works, licensed from Bataan himself, with his oversight and input into a 15 page oversized book by Pablo Yglesia,s that details Bataan's larger-than-imagination life and his little Latin label that could.

Review: George Benson's upcoming release, Dreams Do Come True: When George Benson Meets Robert Farnon, promises to be a brilliant journey into the past, rediscovering lost treasures from Benson's illustrious career. Collaborating with celebrated composer-arranger Robert Farnon in 1989, Benson delivers soulful renditions of American standards and reimagined pop classics with his signature style. The album, originally recorded during a prolific period but delayed and lost for 35 years, has now resurfaced from Benson's archive. With meticulous remastering and production by Grammy-award-winning pianist Randy Waldman, the album is brought back to life, showing Benson's fluid guitar work and emotive vocals. Dreams Do Come True adds another remarkable chapter to Benson's legacy as a jazz and contemporary music icon, following his groundbreaking success with albums like Breezin'. The wait will be well worth it for long time fans.

Review: Benson's first album since rejoining Warner Music Group earlier this year, it was originally recorded in 1989 but was never released. It features the celebrated composer-arranger Robert Farnon and his orchestra and Farnon's lush arrangements beautifully complement Benson's soulful vocals and fluid guitar work on American standards like 'Autumn Leaves,' 'At Last,' and 'My Romance', as well as reimagined pop classics such as the Beatles' 'Yesterday' and Leon Russell's 'A Song For You.' The album was delayed and subsequently lost until recently rediscovered in Benson's archive and with the help of pianist, composer and arranger Randy Waldman, Benson has revived and remastered the recordings, adding new overdubs and choral arrangements. This release adds a new chapter to Benson's illustrious career, following his tenure with Warner Records from 1976 to 1993, during which he released 12 studio albums, including the triple-platinum Breezin'. Recognised as a jazz master by the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) in 2009, Benson continues to be a giant in both jazz and contemporary music.

Review: Joep Beving and Maarten Vos's collaborative album, Vision of Contentment, released via Nils Frahm's LEITER label, marks a poignant and profound artistic endeavor. The album, mixed by Frahm at Berlin's famed Funkhaus complex, contains eight brand new compositions that blend Beving's piano with Vos's cello and synths. This collaboration follows their work on Beving's 2019 album, Henosis, and stems from their initial meeting in Amsterdam in 2018. Recorded largely in a shed in the forest outside Bilthoven, Vision of Contentment was inspired by personal and universal themes. The album stands as a tribute to their friend and Beving's manager, Mark Brounen, who battled cancer during its creation. This context lends the music a deeply emotional and contemplative quality, with Beving describing it as finding comfort in the acceptance of the inevitable. Influenced by Morten Feldman, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto, the album's soundscape is haunting and encourages imaginative exploration. Beving and Vos's work transcends mere melancholy, aiming to leave listeners with a sense of love and a search for harmony, ultimately offering a cathartic and spiritually awakening experience.

Gypsy Heart (3:57)
Beauitful Lies (3:34)
Review: Betty Black's 'Gypsy Heart' is a sassy, driving dancer, brimming with flair and powerful vocals. The track marries Rhythm and Blues under the watchful eyes of Gospel and African-American Spirituals. It's mystical and cinematic, yet gutsy and funky - a true Roots Revival Soul with a sophisticated twist, perfect for the dance floor. On the flip side, 'Sweet Beautiful Lies' blurs the lines between Motown, Latin Soul, and Funk. Betty is surrounded by a Phil Spector-inspired wall of sound, delivering a 60s aura as she recounts a young woman's encounter with a smooth-talking man. Backing vocals echo the timeless theme with a modern touch. The track boasts fat backbeat drums, roaring bass, a full Latin percussion section, and horns, all crammed into the studio to accompany Betty.

Bakteria (DaM-FunK Re-Freak) (4:07)
Review: The Bloto quartet recently marked their return with 'Szlam' and 'Scieki,' their first singles in over two years, released on a limited 7" vinyl via Astigmatic Records. These tracks sold out instantly, leaving fans eager for more. The band now continues their musical assault with another 7" release, featuring a remix by modern funk maestro DaM-FunK from Pasadena, California. This release serves as a prelude to their upcoming LP Grzybnia, set for an autumn 2024 release. Bloto's latest single, 'Bakteria,' draws heavily from classic acid house, offering a sinister and primitive sound that's reminiscent of the harsh resilience of bacteria. Recorded during an improvisation session at Studio Pasterka, the band has abandoned acoustic instruments in favour of synthesisers and drums, creating a raw, infectious track. DaM-FunK's remix, 'Bakteria Re-Freak,' transforms the original's dark atmosphere into a vibrant G-Funk track, filled with sunny synths and a drum machine beat. It evokes a biopharmaceutical bacterium leisurely moving through the streets of Los Angeles, blending warmth with a hint of danger. This release not only boasts Bloto's innovative spirit but also highlights DaM-FunK's ability to reimagine and elevate the original material.

Review: The Blue Rhythm Combo was a collective of musicians from Barbados including Bert "Panta" Brown, Clarence Thompson, Don Allamby, Jeff Grannum, Kurt Dallaway, Leroy Williams and more. They were active in the seventies and in 1972 dropped their Magumba album. It's a fiery fusion of funk, Latin and soul music that is a cult classic amongst collectors. As such, originals are hard to find and will cost upwards of 300 quid so this reissue is well timed. From the strident horns of 'BRC's Groove' to the ska-like swagger and reggae overtones of 'Mother And Child Reborn' this is a great summertime listen.
