An amazing two-fer – filled with rare spiritual sounds from Michael White! Spirit Dance is one of the killer albums that White cut for Impulse Records in the early 70 – a sweet set of spiritual jazz that took his instrument to a whole new level! Normally, the violin isn't an instrument we love in jazz, but White really transforms it here – playing it with a stretched-out, spiritual sound that's almost like a saxophone – really hitting a fresh sound that's mighty nice. Other instrumentation includes a nicely organic blend of piano from Ed Kelly, bass from Ray Drummond, and percussion and flutes from Baba Omson – often building in the way you'd get with a Pharoah Sanders album, but with a gentler, more personal sound.

Afro-Cuban Jazz, Salsa, Latin Jazz, Cumbia | Label: Soundway

Easily the greatest collection of Colombian grooves we've ever seen – a beautifully-done package from Soundway Records, and one that lives up to the high standard we first found in their compilations of African and Panamanian funk! This time around, the focus is on the legendary Discos Fuentes – a label as important to Latin music in Columbia as Fania was in New York – but also one that's got a much richer history, and much deeper range of grooves!

An extension of the popular Original Jazz Classics series (est. 1982), the new OJC Remasters releases reveal the sonic benefits of 24-bit remastering-a technology that didn't exist when these titles were originally issued on compact disc. The addition of newly-written liner notes further enhances the illuminating quality of the OJC Remasters reissues. "Each of the recordings in this series is an all-time jazz classic," says Nick Phillips, Vice President of Jazz and Catalog A&R at Concord Music Group and producer of the series.

Part of Instinct Records' most successful jazz series, This Is Smooth Jazz, Vol. 2 is packed with great contemporary jazz funk, smooth jazz, Latin, soul, acid jazz, groove, and R&B, and is one of Instinct's most appealing compilations to date. The CD features smooth jazz stars Count Basic, Soundscape UK, Joe Fuentes, Chris Standring, and the award-winning the Jazz Steppers. If you have a thing for great guitarists, check out the fine work of Nigel Wallace on "Kabanos" and Peter Legat on "I'm Loving You." If you prefer vocals, then listen carefully to vocalist Kelli Sae who shines with the excellence that only she can give on one of the best R&B/acid jazz compositions available or to newcomers or Espirito who adds an exciting new dimension to the series. This second collection is an excellent update to This Is Smooth Jazz and by adding these latest and most exciting sounds in contemporary jazz, the highly successful series should broaden its international appeal and impact on the various styles of music compiled for it.

Genre: Latin Jazz, Cu-Bop, Afrocubism

Chucho Valdes, Cuba's most famous jazz musician, has rebalanced the repertoire of his Afro-Cuban Messengers on Border-Free, mixing its American-jazz agenda (the group's name deliberately references both Valdes' roots and the late Art Blakey's classic soul-bop Jazz Messengers group) with more extended Latin-American input, and some Native American and Andalusian connections, too. Saxophonist Branford Marsalis, guesting on three tracks, is warmly romantic on tenor on the loping Tabu, agile and fluent on the Cuban dance-shuffle Bebo, and mercurial on a soprano-sax break full of north African microtonalisms on the hurtling, horn-hooting finale, Abdel.
