World’s Experience Orchestra – The Beginning Of A New Birth
Monday, October 30th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on World’s Experience Orchestra – The Beginning Of A New Birth

Image: 1616402 World’s Experience Orchestra’s first album was recorded in and around Boston, in the mid 1970s and
committed to vinyl in miniscule press runs by a visionary, bassist/composer/arranger John Jamyll
Jones. Jones is a magical type, who communicates with his instrument, his ensembles, and jazz’s
ancient lineage in a manner so profound that his late-‘70s album are out of time with jazz’s trajectory,
but timeless when presented today. By the late ’90s the music of World’s Experience Orchestra was
circulating throughout the collections of esoteric jazz fans, the likes of Gerald “Jazzman” Short and
Gilles Peterson, who played “The Prayer” for those, the Coltrane-enthralled searching for something
new, something different. Something spiritual and honest.
Peterson first offered to reissue “The Prayer,” as part of an anthology he was putting together with
Los Angeles reissue label Ubiquity Records and that, to date, is the only official issue of any of
Jones’ music. “I knew it was going to happen, but I didn’t know when,” says Jones of the road to
seeing his music re-issued. “It’s 35 years or more now, and I’ve been waiting for this, and I’m quite
sure I’m not the only one.”

Includes a download card to WAV files of
the entire album and a digital booklet.

Various – Jukebox Mambo Vol.3
Friday, September 15th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Jukebox Mambo Vol.3

Image: 1611995 • Jazzman Records releases the third volume of its Jukebox Mambo compilation series, artfully selected by DJ Liam Large.
• A journey through the popular American music of the 1950s influenced by exotic rumba and Afro-Latin seasoned rhythm and blues.
• Featuring rarities and unearthed gems from Percy Mayfield, Roy Gaines, Chuz Alfred, Monogram Caribbean Orchestra, and many more.
• The twenty-four track compilation comes complete with in-depth track notes and photographs, as well as a deluxe double vinyl edition with gatefold sleeve, and a super limited edition vintage style 6 x 10″ book set – with unique artwork and four exclusive bonus tracks

Since the release of their first Jukebox Mambo compilation album in 2012, Jazzman Records, with the curatorial expertise of DJ Liam Large, have been opening ears and minds to the delights of Latin-tinged Rhythm & Blues. This, the third release in the series, sticks squarely to the tried and tested formula of its predecessors, combining a crate-digger’s passion for the obscure with an ear for instant dancefloor crowd pleasers.

In a congested field of R&B comps, Jukebox Mambo stands out uniquely in shedding light on the era of Latin American and Caribbean influence, a sensual rhythmic shift which continues to be felt in modern music today.

Opener, The Emperor’s ‘Tough De Times (Things Getting Tough)’ is a classic example of Large and Jazzman’s idiosyncratic capacity to bring striking singularities to light, a beguiling and seductive blend of jazz, blues and Trinidadian calypso. Other highlights include the slinky rumba-blues of Percy Mayfield’s lustful ‘Loose Lips’, the only known recording by female blues shouter Ethel Boswell on the track ‘No More For You’, and Chuz Alfred’s powerful rendition of the Duke Ellington standard ‘Caravan’. Elsewhere, Jukebox Mambo 3 is dominated by virtuosic performances, from the smooth tenor vocals of Roy Gaines to the polyrhythmic swing of the Monogram Caribbean Orchestra, and the Syrian-American jazz stylings of Eddie Kochak.

The compilation comes with in-depth track notes and photographs, is available as a deluxe double vinyl tip on gatefold as well as a super limited edition vintage style 6 x 10″ book set – with unique artwork and four exclusive bonus tracks.

Lovingly compiled, artfully arranged and expertly annotated, Jukebox Mambo Volume 3 is another immersive gaze into an era of musical history that still carries a unique influence today. This one is for the crate diggers and music lovers alike!
