    BBC Session 1971

    Previously only available as a vinyl release on John Peel's and Clive Selwood's Strange Fruit label during a brief period in 1988, this four track vinyl EP was the first of two sessions Nico performed for John Peel (the second was in 1974), and was recorded live for BBC Radio One's Top Gear on 2nd February 1971 and broadcast the following week.This haunting session is Nico at the height of her creative powers as testified by those who saw her solo concerts accompanying herself on harmonium around this time.

    Brilliant! Tragic!

    We're going to be the band that writes the song that makes Israel and Palestine get along, is what Art Brut promised the world on their 2005 debut album Bang Bang Rock & Roll. And even though the situation in the Middle East hasn't improved, their bold promise put the London art wave band on the musical map.


    Brilliant! Tragic!, their newest album and fourth overall, was produced by the legendary Black Francis of the Pixies as was their 2009 release Art Brut vs. Satan. We had more time in the studio, so Black Francis had time to teach me to sing, lead man Eddie Argos explains.


    Brilliant! Tragic! offers up a singing/mumbling slacker attitude with sawdust in the gearbox, verbosely funny lyrics, and cover artwork courtesy of Image comic book artist Jamie McKelvie.

    This record is a Danish TV performance recorded on August 5 1967 that has never released on vinyl until now. Dexter Gordon is heard at his best and most powerful on these three tracks of the hardest bop, the swingingest Afro-inspired music and the most tender of ballads recorded on a hot Summer's day at Magleaas High School in front of an audience of young musicians.


    Personnel:

    Dexter Gordon - tenor saxophone, Kenny Drew - piano,

    Niels-Henning ├śrsted Petersen - double bass, Albert 'Tootie' Heath - drums.

    Live at the Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1


    Curated, Analogue Mastered And Cut At Gearbox Studio


    This major new release is a previously unavailable live performance from a great Tubby Hayes lineup that never made a commercially available album.


    Recorded on 5th December 1968 by Ted Lyons at the legendary Hopbine in North Wembley, 'The Syndicate' reveals Hayes' new quartet that featured the spectacular Dublin born guitarist Louis Stewart and 22 year old drummer Spike Wells, with Kenny Baldock standing in for regular double bassist Ron Mathewson.


    With detailed sleeve notes by tenor saxophonist and Hayes biographer Simon Spillett, The Syndicate now fills an aching gap in Hayes' discography and our understanding of his remarkable musical journey.

    Yusef Lateef: Live at Ronnie Scott's

    Live at Ronnie Scott's January 15th 1966


    This is a previously unreleased live club performance from Yusef Lateef, the brilliant multi-instrumentalist whose mixing of jazz and Eastern music was a great influence on some of the finest musicians of the era including John Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders.


    Accompanied at Ronnie Scott's by the house band of pianist Stan Tracey, double bassist Rick Laird and drummer Bill Eyden, most of the repertoire played comes from Lateef's earlier recordings for Savoy and Prestige such as Jazz Moods and Eastern Sounds. Lateef plays flute on The Dreamer and Last Night Blues (it was the last night of the run). He plays the shenai - a kind of oboe - on Blues from The Orient, the xun - a Chinese flute - on Song of Delilah, and tenor saxophone on Yusef's Mood.


    The evening's performance was recorded by Les Tomkins at the request of Ronnie Scott. The musicians were unaware they were being recorded as Scott believed they would be at their best and most unselfconscious this way. This record was mastered at Gearbox Records directly from the original 1/4" tapes.


    Cut on Haeco Scully lathe with Westrex RA1700 series amps, Westrex 3DIIA cutting head and Telefunken U73B tube limiter; Maselec master control and equalisation.

    Fried Bananas


    Previously Unreleased From The Original Radio Broadcast Tapes


    Recorded on 3rd November 1972 for VPRO at Heemskerk Societeit Progress, The Netherlands.


    The great tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon moved to Europe in 1962. Ten years later he was living in Copenhagen when he went on the road with a Dutch rhythm section consisting of pianist Rein de Graaf, double bassist Henk Haverhoek and drummer Eric Ineke. This was quite unusual, as Dexter mostly toured as a solo artist working with local musicians in each town.


    By the time their performance at the Societiet Progress in Heemskerk was recorded for broadcast by VPRO, the quartet had been playing together regularly for two months. Dexter and his "Dutch band" had developed a deep rapport and understanding that's clearly evident on the three extended tracks on this record. These are two of his signature compositions, "The Panther" and "Fried Bananas", plus the iconic Coleman Hawkins classic "Body and Soul".


    With sleeve notes by Dexter's wife Maxine Gordon that include reminiscences and insights from drummer Eric Ineke and pianist Rein de Graaf, Fried Bananas is an important new addition to the recorded legacy of Dexter Gordon's fourteen years in Europe.

    Modes and Blues: 8th February 1964


    Live At Ronnie Scott's


    This is a previously unreleased mono recording of Modes and Blues from the Tubby Hayes Quintet's weekly Ronnie Scott's residency on 8th February 1964. Regarded as one of the masterworks of British modern jazz, Modes and Blues shows the Quintet at the very height of its powers, channelling the new musical flavours and inspiration that Tubby Hayes had absorbed from the cutting edge of jazz and the new directions of John Coltrane.


    Recorded with Hayes' approval by Les Tomkins on his Ferrograph tape recorder, this is one of the most engrossing of all his stretch-out epics. Hayes digs in deep with marathon and breathtaking soloing, trumpeter Jimmy Deuchar delivers his characteristically lyrical improvisation, and there's dynamic interplay and drive from the great Terry Shannon, Freddy Logan and Allan Ganley rhythm section.


    The Quintet had barely a few months left to run at the time of this performance, splitting in August 1964, fearing its music had atrophied into self-parody. Modes and Blues is among its many triumphs, a performance that shows how high the band had set the aspirational bar for British modernism, and, as such, is as much a cultural document as a musical souvenir.

    Live in Morecambe 1959 - Tippin'

    An award-winning previously unreleased live performance from the formidable quintet co-led by Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott for two and half years at the close of the 1950's. The four recordings are without a doubt some of the finest examples of Hayes' art to have yet been discovered, and all the more remarkable for the circumstances in which they were recorded."Best unearthed gem 2012' - New York City Jazz Record.

    BBC Jazz Club

    Featuring Alan Skidmore


    This dynamic but sadly short-lived lineup of The Ronnie Scott Quintet - Ronnie Scott & Alan Skidmore: tenor saxophones, Gordon Beck: piano, Jeff Clyne: double bass and Johnny Butts: drums - recorded this sensational BBC Jazz Club session at the Paris Studios in London, which was originally broadcast on "The Jazz Scene on March 27th, 1966. The 23-year-old Alan Skidmore was already a blisteringly impressive soloist and the band's energy and enthusiasm offer a reminder of the halcyon days of British jazz in the 1960s.

    Bankbusted Nuclear Detergent Blues (Jazz Poetry SuperJam #3)


    180 Gram LP Reissued On White Vinyl In A Limited Edition Of 500


    Curated, Analogue Mastered And Cut At Gearbox Studio


    Michael Horovitz brings his Jazz-Folk-Rock-Poetry SuperJam movement forward to the present day. On this 2013 studio recording of Bankbusted Nuclear Detergent Blues, an effervescent improvisatory poem-sequence which he wrote for Paul Weller, he is accompanied by three of the UK's most popular musicians - Weller himself, Graham Coxon & Damon Albarn.


    The record was recorded at Weller's Black Barn Studio and Albarn's Studio 13, and mixed at Studio 13, and originally released for Record Store Day 2013 alongside the accompanying Gearbox Records releases 'Ballade Of The Nocturnal Commune' (Jazz Poetry SuperJam #2) and the 2 LP box set 'Blues For The Hitchhiking Dead' (Jazz Poetry SuperJam #1).


    Paul Weller found that: ...It was my absolute pleasure to work in these recordings with Michael. Damon and Graham. I am a big fan of all three of these artists and just to be so free with all the music and ideas was a real buzz. A lot of fun and no egos in the way. Fabulous. The end results are amongst some of the best new things I've ever worked on.
