Solomon Burke has a new album out this week – Make Due With What You’ve Got – which should rate a listen. Don Was produced it, and it includes new songs by Dr John and Van Morrison. After the outstanding 2002 Don’t Give Up On Me album, this sounds quite promising.

Even more exciting, if you’re into celebrityness rather than actual music: Jennifer Lopez has a new album out, Rebirth. Doubtless she will leave her husband for Brad Pitt, check into rehab, or make a porno video with Madonna – resulting in multiplatinum sales. Just cut to the chase and buy the damned album now.

Elvis Costello fans can now have the privilege of buying last year’s album of the year The Delivery Man all over again in the deluxe edition with a couple of new outtakes and a video for “Bedlam.”

    You missed a few Blue Note reissues:

    Sonny Clark Dial S For Sonny
    Herbie Hancock Speak Like a Child
    Horace Silver Horace Silver & The Jazz Messengers

    That Horace Silver is one of the better examples of fifties hard bop/soul jazz.

    I used to see Black 47 in New York all the time. Great fun, great live performers.

    If only someone could get a hold of the new album to review…
