Lloyd Miller – Oriental Jazz Oriental Jazz was recorded, compiled and self-released in 1968 while Miller was studying at Brigham Young. The record, originally pressed in a quantity of 300 copies, sought to combine a cool, modal style with the exotic arrays of instruments and styles that Miller had picked up during his travels.
Madlib – Road of the Lonely Ones First single from the upcoming Sound Ancestors. Edited, Arranged and Mastered by Kieran Hebden
Admas – Sons of Ethiopia Sons of Ethiopia is a mostly instrumental album, rich with global influences. It is one of the few recordings to be produced outside Ethiopia in the early 1980s. It is a key document of the Washington DC exile scene. The core members of Admas – Tewodros ‘Teddy’ Aklilu, Henock Temesgen, and Abegasu Shiota – had previously played in a group called Gasha, one of the few local Ethiopian bands. Admas was born from Gasha, as an outlet for their more experimental instincts.(Frederiksberg Records)
Jahari Massamba Unit – Pardon My French Drums: Karriem Riggins. Instruments: Madlib. We would have called it Spiritual Jazz but Phil Ranelin told us to call it Black Classical Music.(Madlib Invazion)
Music Makers Band – You Can Be (Bonus Material) Bonus material from our latest subscription release. (Now-Again Records)
