Weekly update 13/3 - Afro, Latin, Brazil & Reggae

The Swedish spring seems to be here, and what better way to celebrate than with the sunny vibes of this week's theme?
Since records from these four genres aren't the most frequently seen in Sweden, it might be a bit smaller in numbers than most of our weekly updates, but nevertheless includes some heat.
In the Latin department there's the Latin jazz of Milton Zapata, Mauricio Smith plus the Puerto Rican All-Stars Featuring Kako, and the funky drumming of the Moon People.
The Brazilian section gets support from plenty of bossa jazz, Jorge Ben's exellent, self-titled 1969 LP, Elis Regina in London and two very rare 7"s by Marcio Lott and Os Gatos / Carlinhos Do Cavaco.
A decent amount of Reggae 7"s, 12"s and LPs as well with Fred Locks - Love & Harmony and Keith Hudson's The Joint finishing up the bunch.
The probably most obscure gems are hiding in the Afro section though, with 5 7"s and 1 LP out of Sudan on the Munsphone label. Some with information only in Arabic, others by Hamad Elrebh, Mohamed Elamin and Abd El Azim Abdallah "Haraka".
The music on these are just great, and they probably won't show up any time soon again...

Weekly update 6/3 - Free Jazz and Spiritual Jazz

Right in time for the new Spiritual Jazz 6 from Jazzman, the theme of the week happens to be Spiritual Jazz and Free Jazz. Beautiful sounds to bring your spirit level up to healthy readings, and Free frenzy to twist your brain back to the normal again.
Some of the highlights include some of our own favourites like Sun Ra - Lanquidity, Asha by Lloyd McNeill, Carsten Meinert's fantastic To You and probably the most wanted of these - the epic Black Renaissance by Harry Whitaker.

There's nothing wrong with the Free Jazz either, but look out for the big Contemporary Jazz from Holland - Litany for the 14th of June 1966 by the Willem Breuker Orchestra and Quintet, one of Bengt "Frippe" Nordström's rarer releases (BNLP 8B / 9D) and both Swedish and Japanese fine releases - one that might not be Free Jazz to be precise, but interesting nonetheless: Hans Edler's Elektron Kukeso.

Weekly Update 27/2 - Blue Note and 50s Jazz + Rock

Right in time for the best record fair of the year (Saturday 28/2, Solnahallen - more info: www.sunjay.se) we bring a quite substantial update of Blue Note & 50s Jazz, spiced up with Rock. The latter consists of everything from Swedish Prog, to classic US psych / rock and some surprising newer stuff from the 90s and 00s you might not have thought to see here!

In the Jazz section you'll find some really nice LPs like Duke Jordan's "Flight to Jordan", J.R Monterose's "BLP 1536" and Donald Byrd's "Fuego". The non-Blue Notes consist of great titles like "Out there" by Eric Dolphy and Sonny Rollins' "Saxophone colossus".

We've been graced with a bunch of fine Rock LPs to sell as well, and ranges from madness like Faust, to hot fuzz like Afreaka! and a personal favourite - "Thunder on a clear day" by Twentieth Century Zoo - back to mellow sounds from Rodriguez ("Cold fact"), Cumulus and Batteaux.
Don't miss several interesting Nordic and Scandinavian titles like Pelican and Trubrot from Iceland, and The Aller Vaerste from Norway.

And for a change of vintage, we actually have some newer Rock . How about the classic "Odelay" by Grammy winner Beck, a couple of White Stripes, British heroes Oasis and The Verve, sad man Nick Cave, the charming Phoenix, Sonic Youth, Radiohead and Swedish favourite Jose Gonzalez (don't miss his new LP, now in stock!).

Soul & Funk 45s and LPs!!!

Fine update of 60s & early 70s soul/funk today. Massive amount of 7"s, everything from stone classics by Bettye Swann and Mike James Kirkland to grits 'n' gravy funk and also a few rare picture sleeve issues (Irma Thomas, Mary Wells, Supremes). LP highlights include the rare Turbo original of the On Coming Times album, rare doo wop from Avons on Hull, Willie Hutch's superb "Soul portrait" (including the perennial favorite "Lucky to be loved by you"!) and Frankie Gearing's equally tremendous Japan-only LP. More 60s delight comes in the shape of James Carr's beyond classic deep soul set "A man needs a woman" and Jimmy Hughes' "Steal away", plus a Sam Cooke double-header ("I thank God" and "Hit Kit").

Also worth mentioning some great new reissues and previously unreleased LPs. Bjarne Rostvold's rare trio jazz album "Tricrotism", unissued jazz/fusion from Quintonal, eagerly awaited hip hop from Joey Badass and and a few more copies of JB's "These are the JB's" plus Nohelani Cypriano's "Lihue" (first time on 7").
