Out last week - Roundtable pressed up Amancio D'Silva's Konkan Dance. Recorded at Lansdowne Studios in '72 and never released as part of the Lansdowne series (although it has been around digitally since the turn of the century).

I always used to consider Nat King Cole "my parents type of music" but recently bought a couple of his albums and was really impressed with this one:

This is a small jazz group performance rather than the lush romantic orchestral stuff he is famous for and the instrumental work is terrific.  He was of course a major jazz pianist before he started singing.  The whole record has a different vibe.

I'll have to add this to my wishlist. I'm with you on that - my dad loved stuff like NKC, Sinatra, etc. As I've got deeper into jazz and my tastes have expanded a bit I can appreciate some of this stuff now. I've often wondered about NKC's jazz sessions but I've never heard any of them.

Back in January I pre-ordered the latest Rune Grammofon offering by Fire! (Mats Gustafson and friends), which arrived at the weekend. In addition to honking his sax, on this one Mats gets to honk his flute too (yes, really). It's all underpinned by some rhythmic bass and drum continuo. To judge from previous posts, I've a feeling this one might fall on stony ground here, but I invite you to take a listen:

I'm slightly familiar with the label due to some of their releases back in the late 90s and very early 2000s. I haven't heard anything really since then. I remember liking a few releases by Supersilent.
