A landmark bit of indie funk from the 70s – one of the few records cut by Detroit keyboardist Eddie Russ, and easily the best! The album features Russ going to town on electric piano – working with a hip combo called The Mixed Bag, which features some wicked work on flute and soprano sax by Larry Nozero – and a vibe that's a lot more laidback than standard funk, or even more mainstream jazz funk too – a sweet open groove that's mighty nice all the way through! The album's really a showcase for Nozero and Russ' solos – trading back and forth effortlessly over long tunes that roll along in a sweet electric-tinged groove – long vamping rhythms that really seem to drive both players onto new heights.

"Horace Tapscott is one of the unsung giants of jazz music. A gifted composer and arranger, a boldly original pianist, and above all a visionary bandleader, Tapscott’s recorded footprint is small, but his legacy continues to vibrate through the Los Angeles music underground. From Freestyle Fellowship to Build An Ark, Kamasi Washington and Dwight Trible, it all traces back to Tapscott. The pianist was an organiser, and instead of chasing a successful recording career, he wanted to build a community band that would act as ‘a cultural safe house for the music.’ ‘I wanted to say, “This is your music. This is black music, and I want to present a panorama of the whole thing right here”’ said Tapscott in the late 1990s. ‘We would preserve the music on our ark, the mothership…’ That mothership was the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra – the Ark. As a culturally radical, communal big band with a visionary approach to American Black music, Tapscott’s group is second only to the other famous Arkestra, that of Sun Ra.

Soul Jazz Records are releasing Count Ossie and The Mystic Revelation's seminal 1975 album Tales of Mozambique in an expanded double album/single CD/digital format, fully remastered and with the inclusion of two bonus rare single-only tracks, full sleevenotes, exclusive photographs and interview. Count Ossie is the central character in the development of Rastafarian roots music, nowadays an almost mythical and iconic figure. His importance in bringing Rastafarian music to a populist audience is matched only by Bob Marley's promotion of the faith internationally in the 1970s.

Congo Révolution retrace l'explosion de la musique Congolaise dans les années qui ont précédé l'indépendance en 1960. La rumba congolaise, combinaison sauvage d'influences africaines, jazz et latines, a créé des stars désormais légendaires - Franco, Grand Kalle, Tabu Ley, Dr. Nico, Papa Wemba - et tous figurent ici dans leurs premiers groupes révolutionnaires tels que O.K.Jazz, Brazzos, Rock-A-Mambo, African Jazz et The Beguen Band. Congo Revolution (sorti à l’origine en coffret de 5 45T pour le RSD) comprend un livret de 50 pages/double pochette et des pochettes intérieures contenant un texte détaillé expliquant l'évolution de la musique et de l'histoire Congolaise. On y trouve également des images étonnantes du photographe congolais Jean Depara, qui a documenté la vie nocturne animée du Congo entre 1955 et 1965 et qui a été le photographe officiel de l'artiste superstar congolais Franco jusqu'à sa mort en 1989.

All of the music featured here on this new Soul Jazz Records collection was created by Brazilian artists in the USA in the 1970s.

Miles Davis invited Airto Moreira to join his new ‘electric’ band, Dom Um Romao (part of Sérgio Mendes’ legendary Brazil ‘66 in the 1960s) joined the fusion group Weather Report, Flora Purim and Airto both became a part of Chick Corea’s new project Light As A Feather, Wayne Shorter collaborated with Milton Nascimento, George Duke recorded Brazilian Love Affair, and so on.
