  • New Releases August 2021

    Kiko Kids Jazz 'Tanganyika Na Uhuru' is just out from Mississippi. Really beautiful, languid, sounds, with a mandolin, from 1962/5 Tanganyika. It was just perfect with my breakfast this morning. They worked with the main-man, Salim Zahoro, to ready the LP using tapes and records. There's a nice12" booklet inside with lyrics and photos and a bit of back story. Sixty years old and sounds so fresh. It's enough to make you weep. Nice sleeve image showing Salim in 1964 with a fan standing behind him. Salim died in February of this year. Honest Jon's, or Juno, are doing this for about £15 which is a bloody bargain.

          The always excellent Greg Foat is back (does he ever go away?) with hot-shot Finns Aleski Heinola on drums and Teemu Akerblom on bass on the LP 'Gone To The Cats. Greg is tickling the Fender Rhodes and some sort of Moog thing. It's on Jazzaggression and you know it makes sense. I will not be buying a copy for Turboellis.

            A very welcome 2 LP compilation of previously released and some previously not released tracks by Leslie Winer on Light in the Attic.

            I bought 2 clear copies from Norman Records. One was fine the other had a load of noise on one side, so they're replacing it, and paying for the extra shipping costs. Nice folk there at Norman Records.

            I might stop buying the coloured variants. It's real lottery if you get a good copy or not.

                I see from Dusty Groove that there is coming a reissue of “Carlton Streets” by the Brian Brown Quintet. Difficult to acquire Coltrane (IIRC) inspired Oz jazz. I didn’t make much of it when I had a copy x years ago. But Roundtable are behind the reissue so perhaps I missed something.

                  Just listened to the title track on YouTube. The rock and soul-jazz inflections give it more of an early 70s vibe. Better than I remembered.

                    The idly curious might first want to listen to the whole thing on YouTube. For example the track with the spoken word component is ‘of its time’.
