As a bonus there's a detailed write-up on each track on the link too!

2. From Orgy, some classic modal jazz (still not sure what that means to be honest) from Shelly Manne in 1961.

Everything at this blog is now being ripped at high bitrates making it even more esential than before!!!


3. A really fun fresh little mix from http://www.itsoundsgreat.de/ which I linked to through One Take Tapes.

A German site, go to the Sounds section, where you will find a link to the 'What the Fuck! Mixtape Vol 1' and click on 'weiter' (which obviously means download). Serious party music, very unpretentious. I need a tracklisting on this one!!!

4. Found a fresh mix by Osunlade over at Mixes DB. By turns tribal, soulful and Detroit deep.

One of my favourite DJs.


And here's some Moodymann mixes too from there


5. Part Of The Queue has the deluxe edition of Weezer's Blue Album. The acoustic versions of Jamie and No One Else on the bonus disc are fantastic - I know them well from my old cardboard-sleeved cassette single(!) of Say It Ain't So. Full of raw emotion. 90s classic.


6. Roberto Roena at Pepanito


7. GARY BARTZ & LEON THOMAS - PRECIOUS ENERGY (1987) at Pharoah's Dance. Two giants of jazz.


One link. scroll down til the 24th June.

8. An early Jayhawks album at Serenity Now! posted on July 20th. Their 'Tomorrow The Green Grass' album from 97 was one of my favourite albums during my rock phase.

10. And Swami's got Joe Harriott & Amancio D'Silva Quartet - Hum Dono (1969).

Classic British jazz back on the map.


Just under the post 'Late Night Music'

11. ¿Revolucion, No? is going to town with Fela posts at the moment.


I can particularly recommend this album (JJD or Johnny Just Drop) - but it'll all be great stuff.

12. And can you ever have too many VU bootlegs? Zero G Sounds has got these.
