Fred Frith Live In Japan
On tour in 1981, fierce and witty on guitars, violin, piano; and in his own account lit up up by encounters with Keiji Haino, Merzbow and co, and at times physically close to breaking-point.



Derek Bailey More 74
Recently unearthed reel-to-reel solo improvisations from 1974, just as transfixing as the Incus milestone that year, Lot 74. Produced by Steve Beresford, this is terrific.



Billy Cobham Spectrum
First record as leader for the Mahavishnu drummer featuring Tommy Bolin on guitar and Jan Hammer, keys this is heavy fusion, with some deep funk. Massive Attack sampled Stratus for Safe From Harm.



Charles Mingus Mingus Moods
Mingus Three from 1957, bizarrely sleeved, with Hampton Hawes in fantastic form. (Heroine puts him to sleep at one point, and Sonny Clark takes over.) An all-time great piano trio record.



Antonio Carlos Jobim Stone Flower
Starting to stretch bossa conventions, spurred by his move to Creed Taylor's ambitious set-up, aided by Deodato's brilliant arranging. From 1970, with Airto and Ron Carter; and some lovely electric piano.



Shorty Rogers Afro-Cuban Influence
Great big-band Latin jazz from 1958, with alumni like Manne, Rosolino, Holman, Geller, Bob Cooper; and no scrimping on percussion. Coupled with Shorty Rogers Meets Tarzan, from the following year.



Bud Shank Holiday In Brazil
Gary Peacock and Chuck Flores drive the grooves along; Shank's alto and flute interplay with guitarist Laurindo Almeida is liquid and beautiful. Coupled with Latin Contrasts, also for World Pacific in 1958.



Zoot Sims Meets Lamberts, Hendricks And Ross
Two World Pacifics from 1959, The Swingers! and A Gasser! (featuring Annie Ross on her own). Straight songs and hip new renditions of great stuff like Little Niles, Four, Airegin, Now's The Time.




Polar Bear Common Ground
Re-working Peepers in a more hip-hop direction, featuring Jyager at the mic.



Paul Winter Sea Joy
'A work of exceptional, climactic majesty... draws its inspiration from the contemplative reclusion of desolate natural beauty... ' recorded at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.



Mulatu Astatke Timeless
With jazz giants like Bennie Maupin, Azar Lawrence and Phil Ranelin, the great man on stage in Los Angeles in 2009, latinized in front of everyone.



Dick Khoza Chapita
Fat, glorious mid-seventies South African afro-jazz classic from the vaults of As-shams, the first in a series, beautifully re-presented by Matsuli in a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered 180g LPs.




Myra Melford The Whole Tree Gone
The tremendous modern pianist check out those Hat Huts in bracing settings with a band somewhere in the Threadgill family tree, more fusion than avant-garde, even a little flamenco in there, too.
