#107705 for me quite the best jazz(y) album from 2018. also this must be the record that i have been listening to the most this year. i would say +40 spins so far. when i heard it for the first time, i immediately ordered two more copies which is something i usually never do. kind or reminded me of listetning to Yesterdays New Quintet in the early 2000s.

this discogs review puts it quite well: "How fuckin' good is this! Seriously, anyone with an interest in, or love of modern/experimental jazz should be all over this.Nice sounding pressing and solid jams from start to finish...."

if you did not spot this yet, do yourself a favour and spot it NOW!

#107706 also one recent jazz record that i strongly recommend is Mother Of Dreams And Secrets by Barney McAll. afro and cuban influenced jazz which is no surprise for an album being recorded in Havanna. super strong quality pressing!

#108241 Just curious @Million where do you get to know these new jazz releases? I would love to know. I only know Resident Advisors recommended releases for techno and other things though, like it a lot. Oh and librarymusicthemes is great. The broken beat stuff is sold out?

#108282 @Steve: good question. it feels like these find their way to me automatically sometimes, haha! but seriously...some of them i spot randomly, some of them are recomendations from friends. it is not easy to spot all the new stuff, especially the new artists with all their limited pressings...

@Mateo: these are the Expansions. a really big recommendation of mine. totally unknown to the most. the sound is very similar to the outstanding Vels Trio album from last year, which might be my favourite jazz LP from 2017. you got to check these out man. it's good for you!

#108293 Thank you Millie. Sounds good. Vels trio is a fine fine LP. That Alfa Mist was one I missed until a friend played it for me earlier this Summer. Man am I bummed I don't have it in wax. What a great record.

my copy of the vinyl is a much more subdued, darker shade, about half this much red - sounds fantastic.

#108819 Nice one, Abe! I first saw Robert Walter on the Money Shot tour, but I lost track of him somewhere along the way. Glad to know he's still doing his thing and doing it well.

#109000 new pre-order from WE RELEASE JAZZ :

WRJ004LTD
Stuff Combe
Stuff Combe 5 + Percussion
Pre-Order

We Release Jazz is very happy to present its fourth release (following Ryo Fukui’s Scenery and Mellow Dream and Le Cercle Rouge’s soundtrack by Eric Demarsan), the official reissue of 1974’s Stuff Combe 5 + Percussion, a hard to find soul jazz jewel from a cast of illustrious jazzmen led by glorious Swiss drummer Stuff Combe. The limited edition 180g vinyl LP is mastered at half speed, cut at Emil Berliner Studios, housed in a black and silver Stoughton tip-on sleeve, and comes with liner notes.

Recorded in Geneva, Stuff Combe 5 + Percussion finds Stuff Combe conducting an all-star ensemble consisting of Bob Jacquillard on bass, Francy Boland (The Chet Baker Quintet, arranger for Count Basie, Benny Goodman and the list goes on) on piano and electric piano, bebop and hard-bop legend Benny Bailey on trumpet, and Tony D'Adario on saxophone. The sessions ooze with funk, spaced out sounds, breathtaking solos, and moments of absolute collective wizardry. It’s soul jazz at its best with sci-fi and bossa excursions!

Born in Bern in 1924, Etienne Stephen Jean Gustave "Stuff" Combe had a wonderfully prolific career, playing all over Europe and the US and working with Buck Clayton, Bill Coleman, Stan Getz, Kenny Clarke, Oscar Pettiford , Art Taylor, Dizzy Reece, and Lucky Thompson just to name a few. He passed away in 1986, leaving behind a legacy that cemented him as one of the most important musicians in the history of Swiss jazz.
