HIEROGLYPHIC BEING – The Red Notes – 2 x LP €29.99 (Soul Jazz Records)
Brand new album from Chicago artist Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being. His unique style is rooted in the sounds of the city from the acid house originators such as Frankie Knuckles and Marshall Jefferson to the jazz experimentalists of The Sun-Ra Arkestra and The Art Ensemble of Chicago. The association with Sun Ra is by no means hypothetical – Moss recorded with the Arkestra leader Marshall Allen and a host of free jazz players for the album Hieroglyphic Being & JITU Ahn-Sahm-Buhl’s ‘We Are Not The First.’ (2015)
The double LP is limited to 1000 copies worldwide.
VARIOUS ARTISTS – Hexadic III – LP €22.99 (Drag City)
Featuring Moon Duo, Jenks Miller, Richard Youngs, Stepehen O’Malley and more, Hexadic III is the brainchild of Six Organs Of Admittance’s Ben Chasny based on his book ‘The Hexadic System’. “Hexadic III’ conveys a shared mode from a wide span of performers, all of whom have used The System for a means of expression that allows them to access themselves in both new and essential ways, highlighting both commonalities and diversions in their playing – and providing in the process an album of
deeply stimulating new music”.
VARIOUS ARTISTS – J Jazz – Deep Modern Jazz From Japan 1969-84 – 3 x LP €29.99 (BBE)

3 x LP is compiled by Tony Higgins and Mike Peden.
