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".

LanuThis Is My Home ... CD
Ubiquity, 2007. Used ... $3.99
A long-awaited full length set from Lanu – aka Lance Ferguson of The Bamboos – and a record that's one of the best blends of soul, funk, and cosmic vibes we've heard in many many years! Lanu's been bubbling under for quite awhile – first issuing singles from his native New Zealand, then more recently from the UK – but with a full album of work under his belt, the depths of his talents are finally revealed – an amazing tapestry of soul and sound that carries echoes of older work by Roy Ayers, Fela Kuti, 4 Hero, and Herbie Hancock! But the grooves here are way better than even those easy references might make you think – none of this "fake fusion" that sometimes shows up a bit too much these days – and really the real deal from start to finish – with incredible keys, complicated rhythms, and a soaring, joyous approach to the music that's totally great. Guests include Kero One, Quantic, Aloe Blacc, Abby Joyce, No Comply, and Simon Grey – and titles include "Dis-Information", "Mother Earth", "Runaway", "Aow Leuk", "Don't Sleep (parts 1 & 2)", "Let You Grow", "Shine", and "Rise". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Beachcomber" and "Beijo Do Sol" – both gems from older singles! CD

Nuyorican Soul (Masters At Work)Nuyorican Soul ... CD
Giant Step/Talkin' Loud, 1997. Used ... $4.99
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

VariousMasters At Work & Cutting Edge – 10 Years Later Mixed By Louie Vega ... CD
Avex (Japan), 1990s/Early 2000s. Used ... $12.99
Louie Vega serves up the best of his groundbreaking work of the past decade – 14 of the most soulful tracks put together by Masters At Work, all presented in one tight back to back package! The genius of Louie is in the way he brings together disparate musical communities – combining Latin, house, soul, club, jazz, and disco influences into a sound that's fresher than any of its parts – and which was perfectly poised to become the soundtrack for 21st century soul! A few of the tracks on the set will be familiar right away, and they stand nicely next to some lesser-remembered gems – all handled by Louie with care for the original tunes, and a pride that just won't quit! Titles include "Our Time Is Coming" by MAW with Roy Ayers, "Nos Vida" by Louie Vega presents Anane, "Nico's Song" by Louie Vega, "Elements Of Life" and "Brand New Day" by Louie Vega with Blaze, "Cerca De Mi" by Louie Vega with Raul Midon, "Runaway (Spanish Underground mix)" by Nuyorican Soul with India, "Sweet Tears" by Nuyorican Soul with Roy Ayers, "Like A Butterfly" by MAW with Patti Austin, "Backfired (Joey Negro mix)" by MAW with India, and "Lean On Me" by MAW with James Ingram.

New Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz Ensemble (Madlib)Miles Away – The Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz & Percussion Ensemble ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. LP, Vinyl record album

New Time & SpaceCrazy Love Songs ... LP
Postmodern Jazz (UK), 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A weird almost forgotten sidebar from the hey day of the Acid Jazz period. Jim Wellman, keyboard player for the Brand New Heavies, recruits Roy Ayers and long time Ayers drummer Dennis Davis as well as a bunch of friends from the London scene of the time for this smooth album of modern jazz funk. 9 numbers in all combining a healthy sense of respect for the sound of the 70s with a thoroughly contemporary (or at least then-contemporary) approach. Includes "Another Kind Of Culture", "Crazy Love Song", "Good Vibrations", "Best For Love", "The Fuse" and "Darkness Into Light". LP, Vinyl record album

New Various2000 Black Records Presents The Good Good ... LP
Planet E, 2000. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of modern soulful tunes – pulled together by the 2000 Black label, an imprint which takes its name from the famous Roy Ayers tune of the same name! Choosing Roy as a reference point would be a difficult thing to live up to for most other labels – but the 2000 Black posse do a damn good job of living up to Roy's legacy here, taking the positive spiritualism that infused his classic work, and using it to inform a whole new set of experiments in modern music. Roy's present on two tracks – a remake of "2000 Black" done with MM Black, and the set is rounded out by 8 more like minded numbers: "Brand New Day" by Pavel Kostiuk, "Future Past" & "Space Junky" by Nubian Mindz, "Sunnin" by Catalyst, "Groovesome" by Domu, "Terah" by Nu Era, "Avenues" by Titonton and "Diamondstone" by Somatik LP, Vinyl record album

New BjorkI Miss You (Dobie's rub part two - it's a hip hop thing, underwater mix, Dobie's rub part one - sunshine mix)/Karvel ... 12-inch
Elektra, 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dobie shamelessly jacks Main Source's "Live At The Barbecue" for his hip hop mix, and the "Sunshine" mix has quite a hip hop vibe too, with a better disguised Roy Ayers sample. "Karvel" is not on the LP (Post) and is a jungle track, while the "Underwater mix" of the a-side is a club mix by Mark Emerson. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a stickered sleeve.)
