Black, Indie Retail Exclusive Clear Red Vinyl And CD!

Surprise Chef’s music is based on evoking mood; their vivid arrangements utilize time and space to build soundscapes that invite the listener into their world. The quintet’s distinct sound pulls from 70s film scores, the funkier side of jazz, and the samples that form the foundation of hip hop. They push the boundaries of instrumental soul and funk with their own approach honed by countless hours in the studio, studying the masters, and perhaps most importantly, the “tyranny of distance” that dictates a unique perspective to their music.

Track listing:

Side 1
1. A1 Bakery Pledge of Allegiance 2. Grinners Circle 3. Velodrome 4. Suburban Breeze 5. Conversation Piece 6. Iconoclasts

Surprise Chef - All News Is Good News (Mr Bongo)

Vinyl LP £16.49 Add to basket

There is something simultaneously both brand-new and retro about 'All News Is Good News’ - the debut album from Melbourne's instrumental soul group Surprise Chef. It sounds like something dreamt up by lo-fi cousins of David Axelrod and Janko Nilovic, with dramatic Library-music-eqsue cinematic arrangements echoing both light and dark, delving into moments of dissonance and positivity. There is a meticulous education of 1970’s soul on display that touches on the legacies of the great composer / producers, yet at the same time this is a truly contemporary record that could have only been made now.

The first limited pressing of 'All News Is Good News’ was released on the band's own 'College Of Knowledge' imprint in November 2019. It slipped rapidly into the collective consciousness of underground music lovers around the world, with all copies selling out within a week and becoming a firm favourite at Mr Bongo HQ in the process. We felt Surprise Chef had made something very special, a future-classic, and that needed to be heard well beyond those lucky enough to have bagged those limited first copies.

Track Listing:
A1. All News Is Good News / A2. Herbie Hemphill / A3. Blyth Street Nocturne / A4. Have You Fed Baby Huey Today / A5. Yung Boi Suite / B1. Crayfish Caper / B2. Flip Shelton / B3. Drinking From The Cup Of Bob Knob / B4. Mario's Lament





Surprise Chef - Daylight Savings (Mr Bongo)

Vinyl LP £14.99 Add to basket

Being the humble guys that they are, Surprise Chef aren't going to admit they have something very special going down. However, there must be some magic in their studio, or maybe in the fact they all share a house and have formed close bonds, or perhaps from absorbing the DIY ethos of running their own record label that has culminated in such a unique and enchanting sound.

'Daylight Savings' is the follow-up to the group's debut album 'All News Is Good News’. That album earned the band a much-deserved following across the world and triumphantly marked their arrival onto the international stage. Their new album was recorded in Spring 2019, almost exactly a year after they recorded ‘All News Is Good News’. It was the weekend that daylight savings time started in Australia, and the studio was filled with the smell of the towering Jasmine bush on the exterior back wall of the house. The record is subsequently filled with the optimism that comes with the impending warmer months and longer days in Australia.

Track Listing:
College Welcome / Deadlines / New Ferrari / Washing Day / College Welcomes Carl / Sick Day / Daylight Savings / Dinner Time / Leave It, Don't Take It / The Limp





Surprise Chef - Masters At Work & Harvey Sutherland Remixes (Mr Bongo)

Vinyl LP £11.99 Add to basket

A1. Crayfish Caper (Nuyorican Broken Mix)
B1. Crayfish Caper (Masters At Work Mix) / B2. New Ferrari (Harvey Sutherland's Weird Flex - 12” Mix)

At the vanguard of Melbourne's bustling underground music scene you’ll find Surprise Chef. A band very much on the rise, who with two exceptional albums under their belts, are picking up a rapidly swelling fanbase across the world. Working out of the College of Knowledge stable (their home / studio / record label namesake), the band’s take on instrumental cinematic soul and funk has connected with listeners across multiple scenes and genres. Their intoxicatingly laidback sound, which pairs expertly crafted hooks with a seriously funky, watertight rhythm section, has earned them a wide appeal and made their tracks ripe for interpretation.





Surprise Chef / Minoru Muraoka - The Positive And The Negative (Mr Bongo)

7" Vinyl £12.99 Add to basket

A: Surprise Chef - The Positive and the Negative
B: Minoru Muraoka - The Positive and the Negative (Mr Bongo 7” Edit)

Minoru Muraoka’s 'The Positive and the Negative’ is a firm favourite at Mr Bongo. It sees a master of the shakuhachi, a traditional bamboo Japanese flute, flex his prodigious skill resulting in a unique mix of breakbeat jazz and Japanese folkloric music. 'The Positive and the Negative’ featured on the 1970 'Bamboo’ album, which Mr Bongo reissued in 2019. Heralded by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, Egon, and many others. The record’s cult status had us thinking how could we pay further homage to a sublime track such as this. The opportunity came to us in an email from Melbourne’s Surprise Chef with a link to the fabulous reinterpretation of the track which they had just recorded.





Noriko Miyamoto With Isao Suzuki - Push (BBE)

Reissue Gatefold Double Vinyl L + Obi-strip £29.99 Add to basket

Estimated Shipping Date: 12th August 2022

BBE Music is proud to present the latest J Jazz Masterclass Series reissue, 1978 soul/jazz tour de force album ’Push’ by Noriko Miyamoto.

For the first time, this critically acclaimed series that delves deep into the history of Japanese Jazz will be releasing an album by a Japanese female singer, Noriko Miyamoto produced by one of the legendary figures in Japanese Jazz, Isao Suzuki.

The release of her incredible debut album, ‘Push’, coincided with a surge in popularity for local female jazz singers such Kimiko Kasai, Yasuko Agawa, etc. that crossed over into the pop market. It was originally released by the now-defunct label, Yupiteru Records in 1978. Since then, it has been reissued a few times in Japan but recently, along with a surge of worldwide interest in old Japanese music, ‘Push’ has been gaining a cult status among foreign music heads, with the price for an original pressing skyrocketing in the second hand record market. This reissue of ‘Push’ will be the first time ever that this album will be officially released worldwide.





Ghost Funk Orchestra - Night Walker / Death Waltz (Karma Chief)

Red Vinyl LP £22.49 Add to basket

Estimated Shipping Date: 12th August 2022

LP - Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Opaque Red Vinyl. Only 2,500 copies pressed in this edition.

Back in 2016, producer Seth Applebaum released two EPs that marked the inauguration of the band Ghost Funk Orchestra. Night Walker and Death Waltz were conceived as one-man-band, reel-to-reel tape recorded experiments that would bring together elements of all the sounds that Seth most adored at the time: tape-saturated drums, gratuitous spring reverb, surfy guitar, Latin-style percussion, odd time signatures, and Spanish-language female vocals.

Initially released only in the digital domain and on a short run of cassette tapes, these two EPs that defined the early era of GFO are now finally available together on a single LP via Colemine Records. The tracks have been lovingly remastered by Doug Krebs. We invite you to take a dive into the humble beginnings of a project that has continued to grow, shape shift, and accrue new and exciting sounds for its sonic palette.

Tracklist:

1. Intro 2. Brownout 3. Dark Passage 4. Night Walker 5. Demon Demon 6. Blood Moon 7. Interlude 8. Franklin Ave 9. A Moment Of Clarity 10. The Death Waltz 11. Brain Fog 12. Spirit Dance 13. The Haunt Pt. 2 14. Lost Soul 15. Boneyard Baile





Andy Bey - Experience & Judgment (Real Gone Music)

Reissue Sea Blue Vinyl LP £31.99 Add to basket

Estimated Shipping Date: 12th August 2022

Crate diggers have long dug this 1973 soul jazz classic on the Atlantic label…it’s far more than your usual jazz vocal record. Vocalist/pianist Andy Bey imbues every number here with a spiritual depth and soulful intensity, yet Experience and Judgment is a relaxing, uplifting listen reminiscent of Bill Withers or Roy Ayers. Some credit for this album’s unique vibe must also be given to producer William S. “Bill” Fischer (Eugene McDaniels, Herbie Mann), who composes a couple tunes here and lends his distinctive touch on keyboards. Whether your taste in jazz runs to free, funk, or even quiet storm, Experience and Judgment delivers. Reissued in Sea Blue vinyl to match the album cover and the mood…limited to 1000 copies!

Side One
1. Celestial Blues 2. Experience 3. Judgment 4. I Know This Love Can’t Be Wrong 5. Hibiscus 6. You Should’ve Seen the Way

Kokoroko - Could We Be More (Brownswood Recordings)

Black Vinyl LP £21.99 Add to basket
Blue Vinyl LP £22.49 Add to basket
CD £10.99 Add to basket

Indies exclusive LP is on 'Blue' coloured vinyl.

The highly anticipated debut full length from Kokoroko.

“Drawing influence from West African highlife and jazz, wellmarinated in enough polyrhythm seasoning to induce fires on the dance floors they play.” Okay Africa “Afrobeat, jazz, soul and ’70s psych-leaning funk - luminescent” Cool Hunting “This female-led, multicultural collective of under 30s is a vital example of not only jazz’s new form but the shape of things to come.” The Guardian Following the huge success of 2018’s Kokoroko EP’ and the sensational Abusey Junction (100M streams and counting), Could We Be More’ is an expansive and ambitious debut album that speaks to the force of Kokoroko.

Each song possesses the power to evoke memories and harness the feeling of home through music: from the psychedelic, funk-laden previous single ‘Something’s Going On’ to the congregational energy of today’s track ‘We Give Thanks’, ‘Could We Be More’ fuses together the African- London synergy which so naturally underpins the heat of Kokoroko’s identity.





John Coltrane - A Love Supreme (Impulse 2022)

180 Gram Vinyl LP £22.49 Add to basket

180 Gram Vinyl. Mastered From Original Tapes.

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 Quartet - Ballads (Impulse)

Gatefold 180 Gram Vinyl £22.49 Add to basket

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.

Kashmere Stage Band - Texas Thunder Soul 1968-1974 (Now-Again 2022 Reissue)

Black Vinyl 2LP £36.99 Add to basket

15 Heavy Funk Rarities. Cold Heat is Eothen “Egon” Alapatt’s a follow-up to the famous Funky 16 Corners set he curated in the early 2000s.

Egon went through a range of rare singles, masters, and demos and came up with tunes that burn with a brightness that's undeniable.

The grooves are all on the harder end of the James Brown Funky People side of the spectrum and some tracks are by names that finally got their due here, thanks to Egon, Now-Again, and some of the other funky forces doing the good work over the years.

Pre-Order Black Vinyl LP £22.99 Add to basket
Pre-Order CD £11.49 Add to basket

Estimated Shipping Date: 16th September 2022

Things are looking up for The Harlem Gospel Travelers, who return here with a new album, a new lineup, and a new lease on life. Produced by Eli Paperboy Reed, Look Up! marks the group’s first full-length release as a trio, as well as their first collection of totally original material, and it couldn’t have come at a more vital moment. The music still draws deeply on the gospel quartet tradition of the ’50s and ’60s, of course, but there’s a distinctly modern edge to the record, an unmistakable reflection of the tumultuous past few years of pandemic anxiety, political chaos, and social unrest. The songs are bold and resilient, facing down doubt and despair with faith and perseverance, and the performances are explosive and ecstatic, fueled by dazzling vocal arrangements punctuated with gritty bursts of guitar and crunchy rhythm breaks.

Born out of an non-profit music education program led by Reed, The Harlem Gospel Travelers—singers Thomas Gatling, George Marage, and Dennis Bailey—released their debut LP, He’s On Time, to rave reviews in 2019, with Pop Matters hailing the album’s “musical transcendence” and AllMusic praising it as “dreamlike and joyous.” The record charted on Billboard, earned the Travelers high profile fans like Elton John (who invited them to appear on his Rocket Hour radio show on Apple Music), and landed them festival slots everywhere from Pilgrimage to Telluride Jazz.

'Sankofa Season' takes both artists to new heights as they seamlessly complement each other's musical language, giving voice to productions that criss-cross genre and time to move into their own distinct lane. Expect deep jazz funk, hazy contemporary soul, jazzy broken beat, breezy latin soul, organic deep house and much more.

The EP follows Kaidi Tatham's 2018 album 'It's A World Before You', and is Andrew Ashong's first full release since his 2014 self-titled EP. 'Sankofa Season' is the inaugural release for Kitto Records, a new label based in Belfast and London.

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (Music from the Soundtrack) features some of the most iconic tracks in pop culture, including the instantly recognizable “Linus and Lucy,” as well as the languid, lyrical “Great Pumpkin Waltz.” The music was recorded on October 4, 1966 at Desilu’s Gower Street Studio in Hollywood, California by Guaraldi (piano) and his longtime friends and trio sidemen — bassist Monty Budwig and drummer Colin Bailey — joined by Emanuel Klein (trumpet), John Gray (guitar) and Ronald Lang (woodwinds). The entire scoring process was overseen by composer, arranger and conductor John Scott Trotter, well known for a three-decade run as Bing Crosby’s music director and close friend. The slowdown of the pandemic gave the Mendelson family, (Lee Mendelson was the Executive Producer of the TV Special), an opportunity to dig deep through their archives and they discovered what were previously thought to be lost to time: the original analog session reels for It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. What you will hear on most tracks of this new and improved “best” version of It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown are the musical cues as recorded by Vince and crew before they were edited for the television special, in show order, as well as a selection of alternate takes.

Stig of The Dump - Kubrick (Lewis Recordings)

Was £14.99 // Now £8.99 Add to basket

"Stanley Kubrick was a Master of the hidden narrative, a virtuoso of subtext, composition & attention to detail & a perfectionist with obsessive vision. Executively produced & heavily scored by legendary UK veteran, Jehst. The #KubrickLP by Stig Of The Dump is a story rife with gritty comedy & layered in honest tragedy. What begins as a heavy neck snapping, braggadocio laden rap album, effortlessly plot twists into an open & poetic autobiography. A story arc reflected in the continually developing sound track. The script bursts with geeky film references, dextrous word play & poignant story telling, while the backdrop morphs subtly between classic Boom-Bap & weighty bangers to moving, stripped back piano loops & jazzy, spaced out glitch hop" A movie for the blind - "Press play & then smoke until it's all gone Kubrick" Art Over Money, Love Over Everything.
