Scott-Heron, Gil - Pieces of a Man Artist Gil Scott-Heron
Title Pieces of A Man
Label Flying Dutchman
Gil Scott-Heron’s “Pieces Of A Man” is one of the most important albums in the history of black American music. Although it didn’t set the charts alight, it stands as a masterpiece alongside contemporary works such as Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Curtis Mayfield’s debut LP, Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain” and Isaac Hayes’ “Shaft”. All were brilliant in their way, but lyrically Scott-Heron was on a different level from almost every other writer. “Pieces Of A Man” was contemporary music performed by great jazz players, directed and prompted by Scott-Heron and his collaborator Brian Jackson, who at the time was not yet 20 years old. 
“Pieces Of A Man” has no weak spots. Scott-Heron’s lyrics never shy away from the political but are far from polemic. Instead they focus on the harsh realities of life. The title track, one of the most effective, looks at the uncaring nature of the workplace and the lack of value it puts on an individual. The story is developed with the brevity of great poetry, and long before it ends the listener is engrossed in its horror. It’s not all downbeat; ‘I Think I’ll Call It Morning’ rejoices in the need to face up to life, and how it can be worth it.

Scott-Heron, Gil - The Best Of Artist Gil Scott-Heron
Title The Best Of
Label Sony BMG
Storming compilation from the man who invented socially conscious hip-hop way beck when. Features my favourite Gil Scott-Heron track, ’B-Movie’, which skilfully and unflatteringly compares Ronald Raegan to John Wayne; how in a time of crisis, America looks to the movies, but all they get is the b-movie actor Raegan instead of the hero John Wayne.

Simone, Nina - It Is Finished Artist Nina Simone
Title It Is Finished
Label RCA
Cool 1974 semi-live soul-jazz LP from Nina with sitar, Madagascar harp, Spanish guitar and lots of interesting-sounding African percussion instruments. Includes the epic heavy-afro version of "Funkier Than A Mosquito’s Tweeter" with a massive percussion breakdown! Very nice stuff.

Slowly Rolling Camera - All Things Artist Slowly Rolling Camera
Title All Things
Label Edition
"Cardiff-outfit Slowly Rolling Camera have been going since 2013. Two moody, multi-textured albums in, they still aren’t as famous as they should be.
All mournful horns, shivery electronics and soulful - like, seriously soulful - vocals, their genre-straddling sound is as visceral as it is chilled.
Especially here, given the middle-finger lyrics intoned by Dionne Bennett, her emotional charge heightened by core collaborators, keyboardist Dave Stapleton, percussionist Elliot Bennett and Deri Roberts on everything from seed pod shaker to production.
A who’s who of British jazzers including trumpeter Laura Jurd and guitarist Stuart McCallum expand the soundscape further, with highlights including the melodic, complex Scintillation and Oblivion, which, much like the band themselves, creeps up on you.
