Samara Joy

Linger Awhile

    “A young vocalist with a low alto as rich as custard…and a devotion, at least for now, to a classic cool-jazz sound” – The New York Times.

    Samara Joy makes her Verve debut, with a voice, tone and phrasing that harkens back to the most iconic jazz vocalists of all time. At just 22 years old, Samara already belongs in the company of iconic label mates from Ella Fitzgerald to Sarah Vaughan to Billie Holiday, and is poised to become synonymous with timeless jazz music. Her stunningly timeless voice belies her youth and her approach to jazz feels reverent but also truly fresh and exciting.

    The Comet Is Coming

    HYPER-DIMENSIONAL EXPANSION BEAM

      The Comet is Coming returns with their second full length album on Impulse! Records. King Shabaka, Danalogue, and Betamax’s newest effort finds the Mercury Prize-nominated trio creating a musical landscape that is equally cerebral as it is physically enthralling. While containing elements of jazz throughout, this release leans further into heavy dance-hall themes, providing hypnotic, electronic soundscapes to dance to while keeping you intellectually stimulated.

      John Coltrane

      Coltrane - 2022 Reissue

        Initially overlooked in the music press, on its original 1962 release largely due to uninformed musical criticism of Coltrane’s performances with fellow saxophonist Eric Dolphy at the Village Vanguard the previous year, Coltrane’s eponymous album has since come to be known as a piece of art as definitive as he ever produced. Personnel: John Coltrane, tenor sax; Elvin Jones, drums; McCoy Tyner, piano; Jimmy Garrison, bass.

        John Coltrane

        A Love Supreme - 2022 Reissue

          Easily one of the most important records ever made, this was Coltrane's pinnacle studio outing that spoke of his search for spiritual and musical freedom, as expressed through polyrhythms, modalities, and purely vertical forms. Recorded at Van Gelder Studios, it became an instant best-seller and received a Grammy nomination. It remains one of the greatest albums ever recorded, and in 2021 was certified platinum by the RIAA for sales of 1 million albums in the U.S. The achievement garners Coltrane his first-ever platinum record and is the first jazz album of the 1960s to receive platinum status, underscoring its enduring legacy and importance.

          John Coltrane

          Ballads - 2022 Reissue

            Ballads is a special Coltrane masterpiece and consistent best-seller, recorded in December 1961 with Coltrane’s classic quartet—pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones—. When asked why such an undertaking, Coltrane replied, "variety." The recording captures the famed John Coltrane Quartet in a performance of timeless ballads. Coltrane was one of jazz's greatest ballad players, and his lyrical gifts are in sharp relief here.

              The Velvet Underground & Nico

              The Velvet Underground & Nico - Half Speed Mastered Vinyl Edition

                This black vinyl version is engineered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using a half-speed mastering technique which produces a superior vinyl cut.

                What can you say? Everything a rock and roll record should be? Sexy, dangerous, moody, poignant, poetic, arty. One of the most influential records ever. A music peopled with misfits, dreamers, musicians and magicians. A world created by Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Moss and Mo Tucker for us to step into, for us to believe in. And to think in '67 no-one was listening! 

                The album cover features the iconic Andy Warhol print of a banana with the “Peel slowly and see” sticker revealing a flesh-coloured banana underneath.

                  A third installment of Verve's old meets new compilations arrives. To say that this collection is eclectic has to be one of the understatements of the year!

                  Aaron Neville

                  Nature Boy -The Standards Album

                    A deeply satisfying suite of standards sung with remarkable sensitivity reminiscent at times of Jimmy Scott, "Nature Boy" is both a hallmark and a revelation: Neville's feel for sweetly swinging jazz is pitch-perfect. Including songs from Gershwin, Cole Porter, Ray Noble, Lionel Bart, Oscar Levant and others, "Nature Boy" is a swinging labour of love.

                    Lizz Wright

                    Salt

                      It's little wonder the music press have been going bananas over Lizz Wright. This Georgia-born vocalist and songwriter has an exceptional voice and "Salt" is an exceptional debut. Mojo described her as 'majestic' Blues & Soul as a 'jaw-dropping, spellbinding... sensationally soulful new talent'. She's all that and more. Judging by this release she's got quite a career in front of her.

                      Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, Roy Hargrove

                      Directions In Music

                        Revisiting some classic jazz compositions, Coltrane's "Naima" and "Transition" as well as Hancock's own "The Sorcerer" amongst them, Brecker, Hargrove and Hancock turn in a evocation of the spirit of John Coltrane and Miles Davis, recorded live in concert at Toronto's Massey Hall. Supported by a rhythm section of Brian Blade and John Patitucci, they have produced a remarkable homage to the 'new direction' in jazz led by Coltrane and Davis in the 50s and 60s.

                        John Coltrane

                        Ballads (Deluxe Edition)

                          Coltrane's classic "Ballads" album now issued in a deluxe edition with a second CD of extra tracks. These late 1961 sessions are amongst his most beautiful and tender recordings and features the quartet that came to be regarded as the definitive Coltrane group, McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums and Jimmy Garrison on bass. This is Coltrane on majestic, yet restrained form. There's an melodic ease and lyrical approach to these tracks which make it an all time favourite for late night / early morning sessions and the spakling remastered sound simply adds towards making this an essential jazz purchase.
