Review: Roberto Aglieri is a noted Italian flutist and composer, and his 1987 album Ragapadani stands as one of his finest achievements. Archeo Recordings are ever hip to the finest treasures hidden away in the folds of esoteric music, Italian or otherwise, and have done a great service in reissuing the album so that it might reach a wider audience. Aglieri's flute sounds haunting and evocative over the range of delicate synth treatments, largely orbiting the minimal realm but with a naive charm that makes the music wholly accessible at the same time. Soothing, thoughtfully crafted music for tender times.

Review: Unlike much of Ennio Morricone collaborator Alessandro Alessandroni's work, 1974 set "Prisma Sonoro" was not the soundtrack to a well-known film or TV show, but rather a collection of instrumental pieces composed for a music library. It's long been regarded as one of the finest examples of Italian library music around, so it's great seeing it get the reissue treatment. Much of it is pleasingly cheery, sunny and laidback, with Alessandroni doffing a cap to folk, samba and MPB as much as easy listening, classical and soundtrack style jazz. It's typical of his versatility, of course, with the intricacy of the arrangements and subtle musical details making it a set that you can return to time and time again.

Review: Commonly referred to as a "Hammond pioneer", jazz legend Brian Auger is an endlessly surprising artist. He's been revolutionising the jazz scene since the late 1970's, and it is indeed his technical skills and visionary use of the organ which stand him apart. This is loud and clear throughout the entire length of this second chapter of Anthology by the Freestyle label but, in fact, you get a bit of everything Auger-related. The schizophrenic organ playing is definitely there, but tunes like "MG Blues" or "Misty" also portray a deep musicality around all the other instruments within the arrangement, and it's his layering of grooves which is also constantly fascinating. Put it this way, if you want a jazz album that wanders a little further out into the ether, then this is what you need.

Review: Another Italian reissue label enters the fray as Orbeatize makes a powerful first move by looking back to the 80s and the wild experimentation of jazz drummer Armando Bertozzi. Having already made a distinctive entrance with two previous albums, Bertozzi's final masterstroke was Fantastic World, a daring body of work originally released in 1985. Rich with African percussion and wayward synthesis, this is far from a traditional record, and its hefty second hand price tag makes it more than worthy of a reissue for a whole new crew of cats to turn on to.

Review: In 2017, Jaimie Branch emerged from Chicago's spiritual and experimental jazz underground with a debut album of rare inventiveness. Two years on, the avant-garde, improvisational trumpeter is finally ready to offer up a sequel, "Fly Or Die II: Bird Dogs Of Paradise". It sees Branch wrap distinctive trumpet refrains - some played in a traditional manner, others mutilated by effects units - around a myriad of off-kilter and improvised backing tracks. While much of the instrumentation is from the jazz playbook, a number of tracks make great use of xylophone, mbira and other exotic but melodic percussion instruments. The album's standout moment, "Prayer For Amerikkka (Part 1 & 2)" sees her go even further, with vocalists and beat poets narrating a politically charged, future spiritual jazz anthem.

Review: The latest album on Manfred Eicher's mighty ECM Records imprint comes from Jakob Bro, a Danish jazz guitarist who has been releasing a mixture of beautiful, inspired and thought-provoking music since 2005. On "Bay of Rainbows", he's joined by double bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Joey Baron, though it's his layered electric guitar work - part Pat Metheny, part Jonny Nash - that catches the ear. As with many ECM releases, the material on offer here is not standard "jazz", instead twisting the form into new shapes equally inspired by ambient and experimental electronica (see the backwards solos and freestyle drumming of "Dug"). While the album is evocative and entertaining throughout, the focal point is undoubtedly closing cut "Mild (Variation)", an 11-minute ambient jazz epic that's breathtakingly beautiful.

Review: ** REPRESS ALERT ** For the uninitiated: Billy Cobham is a Panamanian-American jazz drummer, composer and bandleader. He is also the brother of multi instrumentalist Wayne Cobham. He was inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1987 and the Classic Drummer Hall of Fame in 2013. Produced with the legendary Jan Hammer (a former bandmate) and engineer Ken Scott in 1973, Spectrum was Cobham's first solo album after leaving his previous group Mahavishnu Orchestra. The album was heavily influenced by the music of Miles Davis, with whom Cobham had previously collaborated extensively. A seminal album of the jazz fusion scene. A Swiss resident since 1980s, Cobham now lives in Schoepfen, a canton near Bern.

Review: There is little to say or introduce about both the Impulse label and master John Coltrane, apart from stating the obvious. Both label and artist have been cornerstones of jazz music for the better part of sixty years, and it's always a pleasure to have these timeless classics re-compiled and presented as a shimmering remaster of the original format. A Love Supreme is perhaps Coltrane's greatest moment - which that is a bold statement - and unlike the vintage Chicago house reissues that are lauded as being too 'clean' compared to their original formats, jazz is a music that must be listened to with crystal-clear detail and sound. That is precisely what you get here with this beautiful new version of the album, an edition which boasts longer cuts of the original, and that'll go down a storm with the Dingwalls heads. A classic - enough said.

Review: Blue World is an album that was never intended for release. It features music commissioned for a soundtrack for a Canadian film in 1964 and showcases a quartet that was at its very best. It's made up of short tracks and alternate takes of early Coltrane material and is utterly vibrant. Catchy little ditties like "Village Blues", stripped down numbers like the title track and the mostly-improvised "Traneing In" are all testament to the enduring brilliance of Coltrane, no matter the setting in which he was playing. The clarity of the recording and richness of the bass playing also add to the overall beauty of this record.

Review: French label Diggers Digest are proud to announce the release of Cossi Anatz. Following up editions in their deep jazz reissue series such as Koute Jazz, Protest & Spirit Jazz from France (1970-1976) and Freedom Jazz France. This long awaited release is an overlooked French jazz album, mixing the North African, Arabic and Occitan music with free jazz/spiritual vibes - this is a real singular sound. Composed and partly recorded live by Michel Marre (L'Intercommunal Free Dance Orchestra) with former Marius Cultier band member Rene Nan on drums. As it says on the cover, this is 'Jazz Afro-occitan' and nothing describes it better. An offIcial reissue here, strictly limited to 500 copies.

Review: Since turning up in the Windy city a few years ago, spiritual jazz singer, clarinetist and composer Angel Bat Dawid has become a stalwart of Chicago's vibrant avant-garde scene. Here he delivers a debut album that should, if there's any justice at least, propel her towards international superstardom. Both her melancholic clarinet lines and distinctive singing feature prominently throughout, alongside sparse percussion, occasional Afro-futurist synthesizer motifs, harp and guitars - all of which Dawid plays herself. It's a virtuoso display that more than confirms her status as one of the spiritual jazz scene's most authentic voices.

Review: When it was first released on CD earlier in the year, Inspirations caused quite a stir. Now available on wax for the first time, the album sees Los Angeles jazz singer Dwight Trible cover some of the songs and artists that shaped his formative musical years, with a little help from Manchester-based bandleader, arranger and trumpeter Matthew Halsall. Highlights include a rousing, near riotous cover of Nina Simone favourite "Feeling Good", a spiritual, harp-laden rendition of Hal David and Burt Bacharach's "What The World Needs Now is Love" - a radical departure from the original, featuring one of Trible's greatest vocal performances to date - and a poignant, heartfelt version of Leroy Hutson and Donny Hathaway's still relevant "Tryin' Times".

Review: Gare Du Nord are Barend Fransen and Ferdi Lancee: a jazz, latin and blues duo from Belgium and the Netherlands - also known for their captivating live show that they perform with a nine member band. This brand new compilation contains a selection of their best songs from their first three albums, such as "Pablo's Blues" (with Robert Johnson - which was featured in St Germain's legendary Tourist), "You're My Medicine" (with Marvin Gaye), an extended version of "Rock Your Baby" recorded with the original singer George McCrae plus some brand new mixes. The three albums reached gold status, but were unavailable for 10 years due to Fransen and Lancee wanting to preserve the analogue sound of the tracks. Now the time has come and the 'French' period of Gare du Nord is presented here with the original tracks specially remastered for vinyl.

Review: It has only taken two albums for Chris Illingworth, Nick Blacka, and Rob Turner to land with an LP on the legendary Blue Note label, but they've done it, and they've done it in fine style. Moreover, it's also a bold move from Blue Note, who only usually steer away from pure jazz for the likes of Madlib and co, but in hindsight, the Gogo Penguin trio have what it takes to be remembered as fine producers of beat-driven free jazz. Mixing up elements of nu-soul, together with broken beat and classic jazz, the trio's music is wild and diverse, and fully representative of the label's vision and charisma. Also, it's exactly the sort of thing that Gilles Peterson is in to, so sit back, relax, and let Man Made Object take you away.

Review: Before landing a privileged spot on the legendary Blue Note label, Manchester's GoGo Penguin had released a string of LPs, through Gondwana Records, that have become notoriously difficult to find. Moreover, they are respected by the very best of the contemporary DJs, including Worldwide FM's ever-present Gilles Peterson. This deluxe edition of V2.0, the ensemble's second studio album, will provide you both with a decently-priced copy of the vinyl edition, along with plenty of added bonus takes and interludes that were missing from the original cut. Thanks to subtle waves of electronica and improvisation, GoGo Penguin are putting the "contemporary" into jazz and, along with that, providing us with an LP that is changing conceptions of the genre for younger audiences. An RSD 2018 special.

"Kins", their debut, was recorded over two days in September 1981 and originally appeared in stores early the following year on tiny imprint Black & White Records. This reissue replicates the original artwork and tracklist, with the cuts now sounding better than ever thanks to a tidy re-mastering job and extra-deep grooves. Musically, the six cuts on offer are wild and intergalactic in tone, with Griot Galaxy expertly combining elements of modal, spiritual jazz, free jazz, jazz-fusion and, on dancefloor-ready standout "Zenolog Aintro", bustling jazz-funk.

Review: Since he released his first album 11 years ago, bandleader, trumpeter and composer Matthew Halsall has proved to be one of British jazz's standout talents. In recent years he's delved into soul-jazz and big band jazz territory, so it's intriguing to find that "Oneness" is a much more spiritual, pared-down and minimalistic affair. Using a mixture of droning Indian instrumentation, languid and leisurely harp motifs, selective horn solos, melancholic trumpet lines and occasional traditional jazz instrumentation, Halsall has conjured up a series of meditative pieces that count among his most beguiling works to date. It may surprise a few listeners, but many more will find it enchanting, otherworldly and emotion-rich.

Review: ** REPRESS ALERT ** Hector "Costita" Bisignani had arrived in Brazil from his native Argentina, where he started to play saxophone influenced by local legend Lalo Schifrin. During his first years in Brazil he would play with artists such as Joao Donato, Manfredo Fest and Sergio Mendes (as part of Sexteto Bossa Rio) and also released a solo album: O Fabuloso Hector. In 1964, Costita and his sextet recorded Impacto in Sao Paulo - an explosive mix of tough jazz and Brazilian samba in equal measure, widely considered his best work. Costita would later stop recording music for quite a few years, working as a sideman for many artists such as Elis Regina and Wilson Simonal and as a music teacher at CLAM: a Brazilian Music School founded by Zimbo Trio. Thankfully he would return to the studio in 1981 to continue his brilliant solo career.

Review: Uncharted Territories is a three LP studio album by English jazz bassist Dave Holland, together with saxophonist Evan Parker, percussionist Ches Smith and pianist Craig Taborn. Avant-garde jazz for the most part, they present a series of deep, multi-layered conversations between one another - some of whom were collaborating for the first time. The origin of these new, free improvisation sessions goes back to Holland's pre-New York days and his association with Parker - when they played together in Spontaneous Music Ensemble.

  7. Sorry To Hear Your Parcel Didn't Arrive (4:21)
Review: Ill Considered is a fully live and improvisational jazz band made up of four members. They loosely pre-write themes then set to making music without communication or knowing where on earth they might end up going, or what they might sound like. It's a rule breaking approach that leads to rule breaking but brilliant music layered up with deep, walking bass, dense drums and freeform sax that feels impossibly alive. "8" is another bristling work of rhythm and conversational top lines that exudes a controlled sense of chaos, bubbled under with menace and remains thoroughly unpredictable and exhilarating from start to finish.

Review: Like many veteran jazz artists, American pianist Keith Jarrett has amassed a vast discography. The 92 solo and collaborative albums he's notched up since 1968 cover many styles of jazz, making it tricky for newcomers to know where to start. We'd suggest beginning with this 1999 album, which is as pure as you'll get. Made up entirely of solo piano pieces - mostly covers, with a sprinkling of Jarrett's own compositions - "The Melody At Night With You" not only offers a brilliant introduction to Jarrett's trademark playing style, but also the breadth of material he's covered. More importantly, the whole collection is hugely entertaining and enjoyable, with Jarrett putting his own twist on everything from Duke Ellington classics and Oscar Hammerstein show tunes, to Gershwin ballads and traditional favourites.

Made up of members from legendary French industrial metal band Treponem Pal and associated act Dirge, the freshly hailed Norwegian group Kanaan on this debut outing successfully fuse free-jazz with post-rock and touches of metal with a mass of '70s avant garde inspirations. The cruising (Eno & krautrock referencing) "Harmonia" a highlight amidst the Sabbath-like "Act Upon The Mundane World" and its radical title-track "Windborne".

Review: Those active on the London jazz scene may already be aware of Mark Kavuma. The trumpeter-composer has his own hard working quartet, but also heads up both the Burger Sextet and the hip-hop-infused Floor Rippers. Members of those combos provide able support on this eponymous debut album, which bristles with fine compositions from the man himself. Heavily influenced by vintage Blue Note and Prestige releases, the album boasts multiple highlights, from the glistening jazz guitar solos on "Carolina Moon" and Kavuma's own punchy trumpet work on frantic opener "Into The Darkness", to the extended percussion solos that rise above the stellar cover of "Abide With Me". In other words, it's not only a great debut, but also one that suggests Kavuma could be a name to watch in coming years.

Review: It would be fair to say that Dadisi Komolafe is not one of American jazz's better-known flautists, having appeared on just a handful of records in the early to mid 1980s. However, his sole album on Nimbus West Records, 1983's "Hassan's Walk", has long been a collector's item amongst serious jazz heads. Happily it has now been given the reissue treatment, with a re-mastering job that guarantees exquisite sound quality throughout. The album's standout moment is undoubtedly the 15-minute title track, where Komolafe's breezy, life-affirming and occasionally powerful flute solos rise above jaunty pianos, loose-limbed drums and memorable double bass. There's plenty to set the pulse racing elsewhere, though, with the vibraphone-sporting "Calvary" and Thelonious Monk cover "Round Midnight" standing out.

Review: William Emanuel Huddleston, or more commonly known as Yusef Lateef, was and always will be a pillar of 20th century jazz. The monumental figure sadly passed away in 2013, but the spirit of his music will always live on; he was a musician who continuously changed the game, a man who saw no boundaries to the possibilities of jazz music. A talented flutist and saxophonist, he made those instruments his own thanks to a very singular, improvisational approach, and this legendary recording from 1966 at London's Ronnie Scott's is a timeless piece of music. Darting in and out of solos, then back onto more stable grooves, and breaking off into mystical terrains, this is a wonderful recording that deserves to be on a any serious jazz collector's shelf. Highly recommended.

Review: The Leeds-based ATA Records continues to bring us the very best in contemporary soul and jazz, this time with a debut album from a local group, The Lewis Express. Taking inspiration from the 60s, through the likes of Ramsey Lewis, the band's self-titled LP has something of the oracular about it, while still sounding vintage in aesthetic and raw in its execution. The band consists of George Cooper, Piano (Abstract Orchestra) Neil Innes, Bass (The Sorcerers, The Magnificent Tape Band, Tony Burkill), Sam Hobbs, Drums (Dread Supreme, Tony Burkill, Matthew Bourne) and Pete Williams, Percussion (The Sorcerers, The Magnificent Tape Band, Tony Burkill) - together they make some sweet-ass, break-centric music that'll undoubtedly appeal to both the hip-hop heads and the psych freaks. What a beautifully composed modern jazz album. Recommended.

World Circuit was the imprint to bring the man to the foray, and here they are once again with this marvelously packaged reissue. Solid and guaranteed to please. Needless to say, this album is full of Havana's magic vibe, rocking some pretty full-proof rhythms with a swing and a charm that can only be found on the Caribbean island. But, it's not simply Lopez's Cuban heritage which makes it stand out; rather, there is just the right balance of motion between dance and form, making this album a sure stand-out to anyone remotely interested in anything 'jazz'. Lovely stuff.

Review: In 1972, saxophonist Philippe Mate joined forces with renowned studio engineer Daniel Vallancien to record a collaborative album that pushed the boundaries of what jazz could be. With Vallancien using his mixing desk as an instrument - alongside early electronic instrumentation and a range of effects units - and Mate playing improvised, free-jazz style motifs, the pair conjured a set that was years ahead of its time. The eponymous set has been near impossible to get hold of for years, hence this reissue on SouffleContinu. There's much to admire throughout, from the droning, apocalyptic textures and scattergun sax solos of "Cambodge 70" and new age pulse of "Bateke Bojo", to the intergalactic weirdness of "Cyclothimie" and melodious, Steve Reich style minimalism of "Sanza Sallee".

Review: Joe Mount of lovable scuzz pop outfit Metronomy mans the latest volume in the long running Late Night Tales, a series who always seem to get the best results out of an unexpected cast of participants (Belle & Sebastien, MGMT, Trentemoeller and Midlake being recent inductees). It's hard not to get sucked in from the sugar sweet opening of Outkast's "Prototype", which is the first of several tracks that demonstrates Mount has a penchant for slow bumping R&B and outsider hip-hop with Tweet, Sa Ra and a Dr Octagon classic also appearing. A typically far reaching approach to genres applies here with the cosmic jazz of Chic Corea happily mingling with Autechre and Two Lone Swordsmen, and American synth oddities Geneva Jacuzzi and Appaloosa mingling for attention with The Alan Parsons Project and Herman Dune. The de-rigueur cover version arrives with a Metronomy rendition of Jean-Michel Jarre's "Hypnose" while Paul Morley ends the selection with a spoken word piece. This vinyl edition has 18 of the tracks spread separately across two plates as well as the mixed CD and a booklet!

Review: It doesn't seem like five years since BBE last invited London crate digger and turntablist Mr Thing to get his fingers dusty by picking out gems from his record collection for the Strange Breaks & Mr Thing series. Predictably, this belated third installment is full of killer selections that lives up to it's subtitled billing as More Rock Funk Soul Jazz & Soundtrack Breaks For Modern Living. Favourites come thick and fast though the low down funk of Dynamic Concept's "La Da Da" and the jazz-funk goodness of Harry Beckett's "Ring Within Rings" stand out upon first listen. The cats at BBE spare no expense either with this vinyl edition that features fifteen cuts spread across the two slabs, and there's also Mr Thing's peerless mix available on a CD that's slipped in too.

Review: A key component in modern Turkish music since the '70s, Mustafa would have gone under the radar if it wasn't for break diggers. While he's still active to this day, Genclik Lle Elle is largely cited as his creative zenith. Recorded in Istanbul, 1973, the instrumental album takes the funk template and flings it into experimental, often cosmic pastures. Highlights include the planet-hopping glissandos on "Zeytinyagli", the progressive head-swirling frenzy of "Lorke" and the infectious eastern-fused riff on "Emmioglu". Plus it's on coloured vinyl. Plus it's got a monkey sound engineer on the cover. Plus it's limited. This record has a hell of a lot going for it.

These became the starting point for New Breed, his most expansive solo album for some time. Full of his usual loose and evocative jazz guitar, the set sits somewhere between lo-fi post-rock/jazz fusion, experimental hip-hop, and softly spun electronica. Regardless of style, it's a hugely evocative and entertaining collection of tracks.

Review: Not to get all emotional and stuff but, as some of you may already know, Jazz Semai is officially the first jazz album to get recorded in Turkey. The 1978 juggernaut is a collector's item, seemingly impossible to find in its original format, so it's kind of a big deal that Rainbow 45 have managed to find the rights and press up some new vinyl copies for us all - a true xmas present! The infamous Erol Pakcan leads on drums, Tuna Otenel resides all over the pianos, and Kudret Oztoprak delivers the bass and extra percussive wonder. Together, these three conjured what is a beautifully diverse and playful jazz LP, full of twists and corners, subtle Turkish influences, but also plenty of sounds and styles adopted from the American school of thought. All in all, it's a special and important album, both musically, historically, and politically. Don't miss it.

The latest Quantic long-player for the South Coast label, A New Constellation, finds the Bogota-based musician leading a hand-picked selection of musicians called The Western Transient. Their focus? To realise a set of new compositions paying homage to the rich, lively and intimate quality of the classic soul and jazz recordings. That Holland should choose to follow his last LP, the explosive Magnetica, with 10 tracks of more traditional jazz and funk proves he's still not happy to stand still as Quantic despite having a hand in well over ten long players.

A range of guest vocalists swing by to lend a hand, while Rapsail's brilliant drum work - which encompasses all manner of different percussion instruments - providing the glue that holds everything together. While there are a few deeper moments, for the most part Dalva is a joyous celebration of global rhythms.

The man, Roy Ayers, is obviously a legend who still performs to this day, but this album must be some of his best work, and contains the cult single "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", sampled by everyone form here to Katmandu, and still a flawless song to this day. This dude is up there with the lies Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, etc etc. A stone-cold classic.

His interest piqued, he took a trip to Sudan to track down the musicians who had made a ridiculously rare LP that was changing hands for thousands of pounds online. Some four years later, his wish to reissue the set has finally come through. It was originally recorded in Kuwait in 1980 and brilliantly joins the dots between American funk, soul and rhythm and blues, traditional Sudanese vocals and rhythmic arrangements, and even a dash of Congolese soukkous. It's the first full album Habibi Funk has reissued, and with good reason: it's near perfect from start to finish.

Spaceways showcased material that the spiritual jazz pioneer recorded with his "arkestra" in 1966 and '68, most of which eventually saw the light of day on El Saturn Records in 1974. Given that copies of that particular release are nigh on impossible to find, this reissue is more than welcome. It's as spacey, intergalactic and out there as you'd expect, with the ten-minute "Outerspace Incorporated" - all extended drum solos, cacophonous hand percussion and trippy horn motifs - and groovy "We Travel The Spaceways" being particularly potent.

Review: Here's something of a treat for fans of experimental, cutting-edge jazz: a rare recording of legendary French drummer Jacques Thollot - accompanied by some of his regular musical collaborators - captured at a live performance at the Faculty of Law, Paris, in 1969. Thrillingly free and fluid, it features Thollot not only providing his usual loose and frenetic percussion, but also tape loops. The highlight is undoubtedly the epic A-side workout - a 22 minute trip into psychedelic headspace - though there are plenty of gems to be found on the flip, too, not least the atmospheric, slow-burning "2" and Stockhausen-ish, delay-laden "3".

Review: Jazz-man Greg Foat has always been more open-minded and eclectic than many give him credit for, delivering nods to pastoral folk, movie soundtracks and library music amongst his more jazz-focused output. Even so, "Photosynthesis" is still a curveball, featuring as it does drowsy and mostly leisurely soundscapes that move from Radiophonic Workshop influenced weird-outs and mutant lounge music, to stoned horizontal grooves and post trip-hop soundscapes. Interestingly, some of the album's standout moments come laden with woozy electric pianos and the kind of hazy, slow motion guitar motifs that evoke mental images of long, drawn-out sunsets.

Review: During the early 1960s, the Tubby Hayes Quintet held a weekly residency at legendary jazz venue Ronnie Scott's. While the five-piece was split in August 1964, one of their spectacular performances still survives on tape, and is released here on vinyl for the first time. It features a performance of Hayes' composition "Modes & Blues" (modal and amphetamines, the combination of choice for many jazzmen during the period), split into two parts. It sees tenor saxophonist and occasional flautist Hayes trading extended, improvised solos with trumpeter Jimmy Deuchar, over the thrilling modal jazz grooves provided by the band's acclaimed rhythm section. In other words, it's a previously hidden British jazz classic.

Review: Since the turn of the millennium, Germany's Tramp Records have been among those labels dictating the rules and forming the state of play in regards to the contemporary funk and soul scene. They've been consistently releasing new talent from all over the globe, and this time they return with the second chapter of the Peace Chant series, a division of the imprint reserved to the cooler, more lean-back kinda jazz-funk. It's not all percussion and moodiness, though, and tracks like "Ain't Gonna Wait Too Long" by Thomas Meloncon add a bit of funk and zest to the equation; other favourites and stand-out moments include the effortlessly soulful "Mystic Sky" by Deep Jazz, and the sexy "Leigh Ann's Dance" by Sheila Landis. Cool, beautiful, and highly recommended.

Review: Already out in the ether since the summer, Kamasi's sprawling three-part jazz opus finally sees the light of vinyl day. Presented on heavyweight vinyl with his striking signature artwork, its delivery befits the album's rave reviews on its original arrival. Highlights, in case you haven't heard it yet, are the awe-inspiring switch from fusion to swing on "The Next Step" the album's overall sparing inclusion of vocal that make "The Rhythm Changes" really stand out and sparkle and the attention to detail on the narrative structure on reprise notes such as "Re Run Home". A must-have for any jazz/Brainfeeder fan.
