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".

New Faze ActionMoving Cities ... CD
Nuphonic/Warner, 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best modern club records we've heard in years! Faze Action have a similar sound to (and a few players from) the Soul Ascendents project on Nuphonic – one that mixes roots of older melodies and rhythms into a killer blend of modern house and groove that's both totally compelling from a dancefloor perspective, and also filled with a rich sense of musical soul and history. This one has bits of Latin, Afro Funk, electro, and funky jazz – all rolled into some killer little tracks with a wonderfully spacious production style. Cuts include "Kariba", "To Love Is To Grow", "Space Disco", "Isis", "Heartbeat", "Moving Cities", and "Samba". CD
(Out of print. Booklet has a gold promotional stamp.)
