    New album from UK based Sons of Kemet. I know I've repped them before - they're well worth your time. The band leader, Shabaka Hutchings, is incredible.

    Check out this track, "Let the Circle be Unbroken" from Black to the Future. The groove gets really good at around the three minute mark:

    More jazz.
    Sun Ra - pathways to unknown worlds Preservation hall jazz band - New Orleans
    Medeski Martin and Wood - uninvisible
    Chick Corea - Alive. (he just died recently, so not alive anymore)

    Sun Ra is out there. Like way out there.
    Uninvisible is on right now, and so far it is fun, entertaining and easy to listen to, but I think I like the dropper and it's more experimental out there sound better - so far... Edit, pretty solid really, digging it.

    May have already posted this in this thread, if so I blame the weed: Sun Ra played at my college in the late 80s. Was an incredible experience (not just an incredible concert, an incredible experience).

    That’s awesome!

    Some of the music grad student at UCSD in the mid-90’s played a lot of free form jazz shows and sometimes they were specifically inspired by sun ra. Not the same thing, of course, but still pretty amazing.

    We travel the spaceways, from planet to planet.

    Got to see Sun Ra and His Arkestra a couple of times, great shows with the band line dancing through the tables at the old Rainbow on 45th and at the Backstage.

    I think it would take a lot of acid for me to have made it through a Sun Ra concert.

    We have a new venue opening up in Portsmouth. They're lining up some great talent and it looks really nice, but maybe (or probably) too nice $$$. I despise the membership thing with a place like this. So many of the people who end up going don't even hear the music. They're there only to be seen.

    I stumbled upon that joint after spiraling down a Eugene McDaniels rabbit hole last night.

    It all started with Prince Po (of the rap duo Organized Konfusion) making a FB post about "Jagger The Dagger", a McDaniels song they sampled (a number of others have sampled it, too: https://www.whosampled.com/Eugene-Mc...agger/sampled/).

    That caused me to rummage through my vinyl stacks where I found a battered copy of headless heroes of the apocalypse, the album that track appears on. On it, McDaniels (aka The Left Reverend McD) flirts with jazz, funk, and folk all with socio-political context; super cool album if you can find it.

    That prompted me to dig around the webz to learn more about McDaniels. He was a prolific cat with his fingers in a variety of genres.
    He wrote "Compared To What", but I couldn't find his version on YouTube (it was also recorded by Roberta Flack, amongst others, but supposedly the Les McCann/Eddie Harris version is the most famous, though).
