Soul Vibration #001 (2005). Soul Vibrations is a collection of rarely heard musical gems, the ones that cross the boundaries of distinct categorisation with a fusion of styles that makes each one greater than the sum of its parts. Soul Vibrations Vol 1, the first down-tempo release from Liquid Records, is a result of much time spent selectively searching amongst the movers and shakers in London's electronic and alternative music scene today. After many years of putting on festivals and exclusive music and arts-based events, the label founder James Anthony (aka Liquid Djems) - an established DJ in London and internationally, has put together his years of experience, talent and considerable contact list of producers and artists to create this exciting venture…

The closely affiliated Black Saint and Soul Note labels were established in the 1970s by Italian jazz lover Giacomo Pellicciotti, and together they released some of the most forward-thinking jazz recordings on the market during their four decades of independent existence (both labels were acquired by another company in 2008). In 2011, the labels' new owner began releasing a series of budget-priced box sets documenting the complete output of particular artists, each individual disc housed in an LP-style cardboard sleeve. This one features four albums by reedman and noted avant-cool composer Jimmy Giuffre. The box offers three albums (Dragonfly, Quasar, and Liquid Dancers) by the Jimmy Giuffre 4, which included keyboardist Pete Levin, bassist Bob Nieske, and drummer Randy Kaye.

This collection on the U.K.'s Soul Brother imprint is a very compelling look at a big slice of Freddie Hubbard's long career as a leader, and one that gets ignored for the most part. Hubbard recorded over 20 records between Backlash, his Atlantic debut in 1966, and Ride Like the Wind for Elektra in 1982, with lengthy stops at Columbia and CTI (as well some straight hard bop and post-bop outings for labels Fantasy and Pablo). In many cases, some of these original recordings were not only disregarded by more traditional jazzheads, they were regarded with outright hostility. It didn't matter to Hubbard, however, because at the time, these were among his best-selling albums and connected with the public deeply.
