Blue Notes - Before The Wind Changes
Excellent archival release - the second so far - from the Blue Notes’ 1979 tour of Belgium and Holland, taken from tour organiser Rob Sotemann’s tape archive. This features the established version of the group - South African expatriates all - Louis...
Blue Notes - The Ogun Collection (5 x CDs in slipcase + booklet)
The Blue Notes were the original group, led by Chris McGregor, who fled their homeland when the pressure of being a racially mixed group in 1964 apartheid South Africa became too much to bear. They eventually landed in London in 1966. Consisting of...

Dean, Elton - Happy Daze + Oh! For the Edge
Finally available again after being unavailable for nearly 30 years are the two albums by the group that, had you asked Elton Dean what was the musical association/group he had been a part of that he was most proud of, Ninesense would probably have...
Dean, Elton - Unlimited Saxophone Company
Live recording of Elton's splendid band includes four saxists (Elton, Paul Dunmall, Simon Pickard & Trevor Watts), plus the rhythm section of Paul Rogers & Tony Levin. A mixture of heads and freedom. [Ogun]
Hawkins, Alexander/Louis Moholo-Moholo - Keep Your Heart Straight
"I first heard Alexander Hawkins play – at the Vortex Jazz Club, with the Anthony Braxton’s cornet-playing protégé Taylor Ho Bynum, bassist Dominic Lash and drummer Harris Eisenstadt in the Convergence Quartet. The music was an idiomatic white-knuckle...
Luce, Francine - Bo Kay La Vi-a
Improvising vocalist Francine works with some of the best of the UK free music players; Evan Parker, Paul Rogers, Louis Moholo, Paul Rutherford, Keith Tippett & Claude Deppa. [Ogun]
McGregor, Chris - In His Good Time
This is a major addition to the Brit-jazz CD cannon. This is one of two solo piano recordings by the great pianist, composer and bandleader from South Africa and it's the best recorded of the two. This has =30' of previously unheard material from the...
McGregor, Chris and the Brotherhood Of Breath - Live in Willisau
Until the release of our two Cuneiform releases, this was the only way to hear the power and majesty of a Brotherhood of Breath gig and it is still a great release and it even includes a fantastic piece that isn't available anywhere else (Camel Dance)....
McGregor, Chris/Brotherhood of Breath - Procession: Live At Toulouse (expanded/remastered)
The rarest album by The Brotherhood of Breath (I never have actually held an lp copy in my hand!) and the final release that features most of the original players (there were reformations and 80s versions of the band, but this May, 1977 recording has...

Moholo, Louis/Viva-La-Black - Freedom Tour: Live In South Afrika 1993

Moholo-Moholo, Louis/Stan Tracey - Khumbula (Remember)
Stan Tracey is probably the living (grand)father of modern British jazz; starting in the more typical post-bop style and as the house pianist at Ronnie Scott's internationally known club in London, by the late 60's, he was also playing a more adventuro...
Osborne Trio and Quintet, Mike - Border Crossing/Marcel's Muse
In his heyday from the late 1960s to the end of the 70s, alto saxophonist Mike Osborne was one of the most distinctive saxophone voices in Brit-jazz (and when you are talking about a school that included Elton Dean, Evan Parker, Dudu Pukwana, Alan...
Osborne, Mike - All Night Long
This is one of three albums cut by altoist Mike Osborne for Ogun and everyone agrees that this is the best of them. Recorded live at Willisau, Switzerland on April 13, 1975, this isn't the world's highest fidelity recording; the meters veer dangerously...
Ovary Lodge - Ovary Lodge
Much-needed reissue of a 1975 live date by this improvising ensemble who specialized in music that had a very wide dynamic range, but especially who could play extremely softly at times. The original vinyl release of this album suffered greatly from...
Parker, Evan/John Stevens - Corner To Corner
Skidmore, Alan/Mike Osborne/John Surman - SOS
While this saxophone trio lasted for several years and played a lot of gigs in Europe, I believe that this is the only release that the band actually put out. It's been a real rarity until this new reissue. "It is wonderful to have this album available...
Soft Head (Hugh Hopper /Elton Dean /Alan Gowen /Dave Sheen) - Rogue Element
Hugh Hopper-bass, Elton Dean-sax, Alan Gowen-keyboards & Dave Sheen-drums recorded this in the late 70's. This was recorded live & is mostly in a jazzy/Canterbury vein. Never easy to find on lp & totally unavailable for years, this needed CD issue incl...
Stevens, John/Evan Parker - Corner to Corner/The Longest Night 2 x CDs

Tippett, Keith - Frames: Music For An Imaginary Film 2 x CDs
Other than the very famous Centipede, this is the largest ensemble that Keith has ever led, with 22 musicians involved. The sound is very full & lyrical, & does bear resemblence to a smaller version of Centipede. Tippett (piano, harmonium), Stan Tracey...
