Eric Dolphy – Out To Lunch

Amazing  ensemble – Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, Richard Davis, Tony Williams – takes full advantage of the freedom that Dolphy offers. The result is a masterpiece of avant-garde free jazz never heard before and maybe even after. The best description of

TM Juke – Maps From The Wilderness

It’s a mellow thing plated with beautiful singing by Alice Russel and sampled jazz records from 50s. The debut album by TM Juke, released in 2003 for Tru Thoughts record label, could be classified as a nu soul/funk release. Music filled with

Skalpel – Konfusion

Slavic jazz, this time it’s Polish. However, this is no jazz band, but a nu jazz trip-hop duo. Despite being producers/DJs, their overall product grooves like a live jazz group and possibly better than some live groups. Konfusion is deep,

Sun Ra – Sleeping Beauty

This is the great late-night Sun Ra chillout album, released in 1979 for El Saturn Records, that you never knew about. The band had been working in a more groove-oriented setting off and on for over a year, as evidenced by
