Born in Kingston, Jamaica, the trumpeter Dizzy Reece moved to London at age 17 and began working across Europe, frequently in Paris, where he played with the likes of Don Byas and Kenny Clarke. Reece also made fans of Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins who spread the word about a hot new trumpeter on the European scene. So when Donald Byrd and Art Taylor came through Paris on tour in 1958 they sought out Reece and even found their way into the recording studio together for what would become Reece's Blue Note debut Blues In Trinity. Encouraged by Alfred Lion, Reece would move to New York City the next year where Lion quickly put him back in the studio with a first-rate hard bop band including Hank Mobley on tenor saxophone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Taylor once again on drums. The resulting album Star Bright is a hidden gem of the Blue Note catalog with Reece shining brightly on a 6-song set that included several of his own bluesy originals like "The Rake," "Groovesville," "The Rebound," and the Thelonious Monk inspired "A Variation On Monk." Two standards round out the offering with swinging takes on "I'll Close My Eyes" and "I Wished On The Moon," both of which showcase Reece's sublime delivery of a melody.

Foolish Seasons [RSD 2022]

ON SALE $27.98 Vinyl: $26.19 Buy

Dana Gillespie’s debut album, Foolish Seasons, is one of the great lost albums of 1960’s British pop. This very rare and sought-after 1968 album from the legendary British singer/songwriter was only released in the U.S. and over the years its reputation among collectors has only grown. Although it never came out in England, Decca Records kept the masters to the intended U.K. pressing which is now being released on vinyl. It contains two previously unreleased, self-penned tracks – the blue-eyed soul bop “Goin’ Round in Circles” and the orchestral “Come to My Arms” which could almost have been a Bond theme.

Side A:
1. You Just Gotta Know My Mind
2. Tears In My Eyes

HIGH-DEFINITION PREMIUM VINYL PRESSING FOR SUPER FIDELITY INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS! This essential LP edition presents one of Hopkins' finest albums, "Mojo Hand", which was originally issued in 1962 on Bobby Robinson's label, Fire Records. (The LP would be retitled Lightnin' Hopkins just two years later for the Sphere Sounds imprint re-release, featuring a different cover-sleeve.) Mojo Hand is widely regarded as one of the true masterpieces from Hopkins' catalog. The material ranges from classic blues to R&B-flavored numbers. There's even a charming novelty Christmas blues, titled "Santa." These are moody and powerful performances. Despite the variety, the album is remarkably cohesive because Hopkins' amalgamation of styles can be heard within each song.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2014 180 gram audiophile vinyl pressing reissue. First pressing of 1500 worldwide numbered copies are pressed on white vinyl. Briefcase Full of Blues is the debut album by The Blues Brothers, originally released in 1978. The Blues Brothers, more formally called The Blues Brothers' Show Band and Revue, began as an affectionate comedic tribute to R&B music featuring comedy actors Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live. Belushi (lead vocalist "Joliet Jake" Blues) and Aykroyd (harmonica player/backing vocalist Elwood Blues) fronted a band which was composed of well-known and respected session musicians. Soon after three SNL performances, the band began to take on a life beyond television, releasing an album, Briefcase Full of Blues, and then having the Hollywood film The Blues Brothers created around it's characters in 1980. The track listing of Briefcase Full of Blues boasts infectious covers of songs by Otis Redding, Junior Wells, King Floyd, Sam & Dave and Big Joe Turner, amongst others. Backing up Jake & Elwood are Stax heroes Donald - Duck- Dunn and Steve Cropper, Paul Shaffer and other seasoned session men. The album reached #1 on the Billboard 200 and went double Platinum. Two singles were released, "Rubber Biscuit", which reached number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 and "Soul Man", which reached number 14.

It is tempting to play up the "Italian Connection" on Joey's newest record. With Joey's previous nod toward the Goodfellas it would easy to claim that Frank Sinatra is the natural next step. But the simple fact of the matter is that this is tribute of one master of American Music to another. Perhaps no other singer in history defined the American Popular Songbook as Frank Sinatra and it is only natural that Joey DeFrancesco ? so instrumental in defining the new B-3 sound ? would turn to wealth of exceptional material from the Sinatra discography. Great music is great music and Joey knows it and has surrounded himself with great sidemen. The great Houston Person on tenor sax is on hand as is groove master guitarist Melvin Sparks and Joey's drummer of choice, Byron Landham. Together they swing through six tunes recorded by Sinatra and, while far from mimicking the original arrangements, they pay tribute to the legacy of Sinatra, refracted through the prism of their own talent and imagination.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2020 release. Stand Up! It's not just an album title, it's an order, forcing anyone who hears Whitney Shay's brand of rocket-fueled R&B onto the dancefloor. A flame-haired stick of dynamite in a sparkling dress, this San Diego phenomenon has made a record for dancing, drinking and dreaming, with songs to soundtrack the peaks and punches of life. Stand Up! Is sure to mark the global explosion of a singer-songwriter who's long been threatening to go 'boom'.

Coming up the old-fashioned way - with a thousand word-of-mouth shows blazing her reputation across the planet - Shay's first decade has seen four wins at the San Diego Music Awards, a nomination at last year's prestigious Blues Music Awards and the tag of "future blues icon" bestowed by Blues Matters! #magazine. Whether you picked up 2012's debut album, Soul Tonic, caught up with her on 2018's acclaimed A Woman Rules The World - or heard her songs on major TV networks including HBO and NBC - you're probably already a fan, whether you realise it or not. But having signed to Ruf last year, Shay is set to paint the world red in 2020.

Tracking at Austin's Wire Recording Studio with producer Kaz Kazanoff, Stand Up! #saw the singer let the good vibes flow. Setting the pace with the title track's brassy soul and smoky quickfire vocal, this new record's upbeat moments twist from the rolling groove of Tell The Truth to the dirtied-up funk of P.S. It's Not About You, with Shay's all-star studio band rising to the occasion.

Bob James, the Grammy Award-winning jazz keyboardist, arranger, record producer, record executive, and founding member of Fourplay, returns with Espresso, his first solo-led project in 12 years. Album tunes, penned by James, reflect the same inventiveness and musical fluency that persuaded Quincy Jones to become his mentor and champion back in 1963. His expressiveness through both writing and performance permeates the rocking minor-key blues of "Bulgogi," the definitive cool jazz of "Topside," the funk strut of "Submarine," the whispered beauty of "Promenade," the turbulent, more complex yet supremely listenable "Mojito Ride" and every other moment on Espresso. The Bob James Trio is complete with drummer Billy Kilson and bassist Michael Palazzolo.

Bobby Band Blue


ON SALE $34.99 Vinyl: $31.12 Buy

Bobby 'Blue' Bland (1930 - 2013) was one of the leading US-American Blues, R&B and Soul entertainers. He knew how to combine the intensity of Gospel music with the expression of the Blues. His voice sounded as he wanted to bear witness to one's resolve but he was able to let his voice sound soft, sometimes cool but always cultivated. Thus he also reached out to the fans of Frank Sinatra and Nat 'King' Cole with tremendous success. He formed his remarkable style of singing out of many different influences, characteristic and exclusively reserved for Bobby 'Blue' Bland. Blands voice was always the center of attention. After his huge successes during the 1950s and 1960s for the Duke label, he moved to ABC Dunhill when Duke was sold. He could reach a wider white audience in the early 1970s with his two LPs, 'His California Album' and 'Dreamer', plus productions together with B.B. King. 'Dreamer' was the record company's trial to produce an album in California with the cool Soul appeal of the city of Los Angeles. As a timeless Soul and Blues classic the album contains the in recent years often sampled track Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City, one of the musical back bones to one of the favorites by Jay Z. The whole album is a wonderful soundtrack for those lonely nights alone and blue in a sleazy joint trying to forget a lost love in a bottle of bourbon. 'Dreamer' is the warm velvet cover against cold loneliness with so many great songs like I Wouldn't Treat A Dog (The Way You Treated Me) and Whose Foolin' Who?, the bluesy Cold Day In Hell, Lovin' On Borrowed Time and When You Come To The End Of Your Road. I Ain't Gonna Be The First To Cry has indeed the lyrical quality of The Thrill Is Gone. The production by Steve Barri and Michael Omartian sounds full and ponderous. The accompanying musicians, amongst them guitarists Dean Parks and Larry Carlton, bassist Wilton Felder and drummer Ed Green, belong to the cream of L.A.'s studio musicians.

Some serious all-star players from the likes of Bill Payne (John Cale-Lionel Richie) and Edwin Williams (Syl Johnson) can also clearly be heard backing up Frank here on this exceptional album.You Betcha! Was recorded in 1974 at the legendary Chicago nightclub Fiddler's. The sound quality is top-notch and intimate with a noticeable vibe that conveys the enthusiasm of the audience. Only 1000 copies of this album were privately pressed back in 1974, so it comes as no surprise that this record continues to be one of the rarest sought-after vinyl albums by jazz collectors worldwide.If you enjoy uplifting and hard-swinging jazz, slightly mysterious at times (bordering on the spiritual), lots of funky/soul influences and bouncing energetic grooves... then this is a highly recommended gem for your record collection (and a must-have for seekers of rare grooves).Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the FIRST ever vinyl reissue of this fantastic album (originally privately pressed and released in 1974 on PS Records). This rare record (original copies tend to go for large amounts on the secondary market) is now finally back available as a limited 180g vinyl edition (500 copies) complete with the original artwork and sleeve notes by jazz bassist extraordinaire Eldee Young (Prince Billy Mahdi Wright, Ramsey Lewis).

Vladimír Misík, whose recent album "Jednou te potkám"(I'll Meet You Once) won six Czech Music Academy Awards and received excellent reviews, releases a new studio album entitled "Nocní obraz" (Night Image) in September 2021. Like in the case of the previous project, this album originated in collaboration with producer Petr Ostrouchov and his band Blue Shadows. The music on the album is by Ostrouchov and Misík and the repertoire includes music composed to Misík's own lyrics and musicalisations of poems by Czech poets Jan Skácel, Václav Hrabe, Jirí Orten and Frantisek Hrubín. As the final track of the album, the authors included the song "Dekuji" (Thank you), based on a poem by the recently deceased David Stypka. The new album features a number of distinguished international guests, including Blind Boys of Alabama, Jerry Douglas, Irish-music stars Davy Spillane and Dónal Lunny, percussionist from Paul Simon's band Jamey Haddad, or mandolinist Mike Marshall, and prominent local musicians, such as organist Ondrej Pivec, pianist Jan Steinsdörfer, saxophonist Frantisek Kop, and world-famous horn player Radek Baborák and his ensemble. Alongside Misík's own voice, the recording also features guest vocalists Lenka Dusilová, Robert Krestan, Lenka Nová, Markéta Foukalová, and a trio of New York gospel vocalists.

Howlin' Wolf

Howlin' Wolf

ON SALE $22.99 Vinyl: $19.50 Buy

EU-only 180 gm vinyl LP pressing including two bonus tracks and digital download. This quintessential LP edition contains Howlin' Wolf's eponymous second album for Chess Records, HOWLIN' WOLF (released in January 1962), which has been long unavailable on vinyl. The long play, which has come to be known as THE ROCKIN' CHAIR ALBUM, was originally released as a collection of 6 single records (which included a total of 9 tracks) that were taped and released individually as singles between 1960 and 1961 (though two of the songs, "Who's Been Talking" and "Tell Me", were cut in 1957). The album also contained three previously unreleased songs, recorded between May and December 1961. The music presented here is a testament to Wolf's unearthly, mighty force. One of his best loved LPs, HOWLIN' WOLF is widely recognized as one of the all-time cornerstones of the Chicago Blues (it was also named the third greatest guitar album of all time by Mojo magazine in 2004).
