Nathan HainesPoet's Embrace ... CD
Haven/Warner (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $13.99
A really great change for saxophonist Nathan Haines – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given how much we already liked him before! The set's a straight jazz outing – of the kind that really lets Haines' strengths on reeds shine forth beautifully – soaring out soulfully in ways that are quite different than his more groove-oriented recordings – yet still equally soulful! Nathan's tenor is wonderful – as deep in tone and rich in feeling as some of the greats of the 60s generation – yet informed with a slight spiritual sense of phrasing as well, even though the overall production and setting is downright classic. The group's a quartet – with Kevin Field on piano, Alain Koetsier on drums, and Thomas Botting on bass – and titles include the Haines' originals "Realisation", "Universal Man", "Ancestral Dance", "The Poet's Embrace", and "Consequence" – plus a version of Roy Brooks' "Eboness".

Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz Ensemble (Madlib)Miles Away – The Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz & Percussion Ensemble (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Stones Throw, 2010. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
A mad mix of spaced out jazz funk from Madlib – working here in a style closer to his benchmark Yesterday's New Quintet mode of forward looking band-based grooves – but also taking it even further and into deeper realms! The Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz & Percussion Ensemble finds 'Lib & co paying homage to a universe of late 60s & 70s soul jazz and fusion funk influences, as well as some more modern practitioners – with tracks dedicated to Horace Tapscott, Phil Ranelin, Roy Ayers and others – some covers and others composed by Madlib. Madlib is a character whose ambition knows no bounds, and also one of the rare modern masters whose productivity is to be cherished – as busy as he is, we're never disappointed with the output – rather than spreading himself too thin, he brings a range of material that rolls from dust funk & hip hop grit to far out funk jazz percussion gems like this one! Madlib presides over a cast of players (be they living-breathing folks or Madlib alter egos) that lay down loads of drums & percussion, piano, Moog, Rhodes, guitars, bass, sitar, vibes and more. Titles include "Derf (For Derf Reklaw)", "One For The Monica Lingas Band", "Waltz For Woody (For Woody Shaw)", "Tones For Larry Young", "Black Renaissance (For Harry Whitkaker)", "Mystic Voyage (For Roy Ayers)", "The Trane & The Pharoah (For John Coltrane & Pharoah Sanders)" and more.

(Comes in a nice heavy gatefold-style cardboard sleeve.)

New Nuyorican Soul (Masters At Work)Nuyorican Soul ... CD
Giant Step/Talkin' Loud, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive record – and an instant legend the day it was released! Masters At Work host the beautiful meeting of a host legendary artists – Roy Ayers, George Benson, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Jocelyn Brown, Vince Montana, and others – all united in a magical session that brings Latin firmly back to the dancefloor with the power and majesty of the best 70s recordings! The whole thing's amazing – a fantastic mix of Latin, funk, jazz, and house that's inspired a whole new generation of musicians – and which has still yet to be duplicated years later! Includes the massive remake of "I Am the Blackgold of the Sun", plus "Runaway", "Sweet Tears", and the great cover of Bob James' "Nautilus". CD

New OH KrillKrill Papers ... CD
DC Recordings (UK), 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title sounds like some cool early 70s thriller – and so does the music! The group's a stripped-down combo with keyboards, guitar, sax, trumpet, and percussion – and they play with a style that reminds us of dark 70s soundtracks like Death Wish or some of Roy Budd's best work. Don't worry about the fact that they're a new group – because there's no kitschy gimmickry or fake retro feel. The grooves are solid all the way through – and if the album had the date of 1974 stamped on the back, you'd probably never guess they were around today! All instrumental, with a hip jazzy downtempo sound – and a fresh approach that will have you pulling this one out again and again. Titles include "Seven Up Swing", "Riding High", "Reaching Up", "Back Room Shuffle", "Yesterday's Hero", and "Dusk Till Dawn". CD

New VariousOsunlade Presents Yoruba Soul Mixes ... CD
BBE/Rapster (UK), 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great batch of spiritual club grooves – tunes cut by club gurus and bona fide legends alike – all remixed by the masterful, transcultural fingers of Osunlade! Osunlade brings his incredible approach to each track without distracting from what makes the performers so great in their own right. Club soul maestros Erro and 4 Hero are inflected with just a bit of an Afro house vibe, just as the earthier tones of Roy Ayers and Cesaria Evora given just the right amount of a dancefloor kick. Needless to say, Osunlade's meticulous craft give the set a very unified feel. Tracks include "Don't Change" by Erro, "Hold It Down" by 4 Hero feat Lady Alma, "Searching" by Roy Ayers, "Bondade E Maldade" by Cesaria Evora, "Moussoulou" by Salif Keita, "Getaway" by Spacek, "Shakoor" by Osunlade featuring Nadirah, "I Might Do Something Wrong" by Tortured Soul, "Your Colors" by John Beltran and more!
