Yusef Lateef: Live At Ronnie Scotts January 15th 1966 (Vinyl LP: Gearbox)Yusef Lateef: Live At Ronnie Scotts January 15th 1966 (Vinyl LP: Gearbox)
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 for 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.

Dexter Gordon: Fried Bananas (Vinyl LP: Gearbox)
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.

The Ronnie Scott Quintet featuring Alan Skidmore: BBC Jazz Club (Vinyl LP: Gearbox)The Ronnie Scott Quintet featuring Alan Skidmore: BBC Jazz Club (Vinyl LP: Gearbox)
This dynamic but sadly short-lived lineup of The Ronnie Scott Quintet recorded this sensational BBC Jazz Club session at the Paris Studios in London, which was originally broadcast on “The Jazz Scene" on 27th March 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 1960’s. This audiophile quality 180gm Vinyl LP was cut at Gearbox on a Haeco Scully lathe with Westrex RA1700 series amps, Westrex 3DIIA cutting head and Telefunken U73B tube limiter, Maselec master control and equalisation.

Mark Murphy is one of the great voices of jazz and an icon for all modern jazz vocalists. This wonderful recording celebrates his close friend Shirley Horn with four of her trademark songs reinterpreted in Mark Murphy’s inimitable style. It’s a warm and sparse sounding session with ‘plenty of air’ - the recording venue of The Merion Inn, Cape May, N.J. was specifically chosen for its acoustic properties. Mark is joined by Shirley Horn’s longtime drummer Steve Williams, Betty Carter’s double bassist Curtis Lundy (brother of Carmen), the sensational young New York pianist Alex Minasian and the German trumpet star Till Brönner. Produced by Jean-Pierre Leduc & Darrel Sheinman for Gearbox Records and recorded by Bob Fowler at SSR with the SSR Mobile recording unit.

Michael Garrick Sextet with Don Rendell and Ian Carr: Prelude to Heart Is A Lotus (Vinyl LP: Gearbox)Michael Garrick Sextet with Don Rendell and Ian Carr: Prelude to Heart Is A Lotus (Vinyl LP: Gearbox)
Prelude to Heart Is A Lotus is a 1968 BBC Jazz in Britain recording now released for the first time. Pianist and composer Michael Garrick was 35 years old and together with close associates - saxophonist Don Rendell and trumpeter Ian Carr - was defining innovative new directions in British jazz. This record is the precursor to the Argo Records' Heart Is A Lotus studio album which was released two years later, and this remarkable music shines a new light on an extraordinary period of creativity in Garrick’s long career.
