Guida DePalma & Jazzinho with Bluey & Leon WareAbraco De Bossa (Incognito Lounge mix)/A Seed In You ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy .... $7.99
Bluey from Incognito makes a guest appearance here – adding in some even jazzier touches to his mix of "Abraco De Bossa" – a great way of making an already-great tune even better than before! "A Seed In You" is a tune that features guest vocals from Leon Ware – whose English lyrics are a great fit for the Portuguese musings of Guida DaPalma! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New IncognitoPositivity ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Universal, 1993. Used .... $4.99
Wonderful work from Incognito – perhaps their greatest album ever! By the time of this 1993 release, this Brit funky soul combo was in perfect form – blending together classic modes of jazz funk into a tight modern blend that's lasted a lot longer than anyone might have thought at the time. From the perspective of nearly a decade later, this album glistens like a lost soul jewel – perfectly fitting in between some of our favorite 70s albums, and a few of the better sides from recent years. The vocals are great, the riffing is tight, and the production is smooth and soulful all the way through. Tracks include "Still A Friend Of Mine", "Positivity", "Smiling Faces", "Do Right", "Better Days", "Talkin Loud", and "Thinkin About Tomorrow". CD

New IncognitoTribes, Vibes, & Scribes ... CD
Verve/Suonaphone, 1992. Used .... $5.99
A stunning little set from Incognito – the group's first full album on Talkin Loud records, and a set that's head and shoulders above their earlier jazz funk from the 80s! The sound here has a real "instant classic" quality – not just because it's dripping with the best references from the jazzier side of 70s soul (think Fantasy Records at its best!) – but also because it's so well put together, with a sense of instrumentation that's tight, yet an overall groove that's relaxed and fairly spontaneous – something that was quite rare at the time the record was released! Bluey is at the height of his powers here – stepping strongly into a run of great work that would last for well over a decade – and other key figures include Maysa Leak on vocals, Kevin Robinson on trumpet, and Graham Harvey and Peter Hinds on keyboards. Titles include a killer remake of Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing", plus "Change", "Colibri", "Magnetic Ocean", "Closer To The Feeling", "Tribal Vibes", "Pyramid", and "I Love What You Do For Me".

New IncognitoWho Needs Love (Japanese version) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2002. Used .... $5.99
Do these guys ever lose their touch? We think not – as this album, the group's umpteenth, is pretty darn great! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick pulled out all the stops on this set – working with a range of vocalists that includes Joy Rose, Kelli Sae, Tony Momrelle, Joy Malcolm, and Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta! The range of voices on the set really gives it a lot of depth – moving past the easy jazz funk moments of earlier sets, and going for an all-solid, all-soulful approach that really blows our mind! Great stuff all the way through – maybe their best album in years – and a record you'll be playing into the next decade. Titles include "Morning Sun", "Who Needs Love", "Stone Cold Heart", "Where Love Shines", "Blue", "Fly", "If You Want My Love", and "Cada Dia". CD

New Alphonse MouzonMan Incognito ... CD
Blue Note/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A monstrous bit of jazz funk from drummer Alphonse Mouzon – spacey tracks in a choppy style that reminds us a bit of some of the best European fusion albums from the period, but with a harder groove overall! Mini Moog and ARP trip out the sound throughout, but the underlying rhythms are nice and heavy. Lee Ritenour's on guitar, and he gets a lot of play on the record – but the main groove is Alphonse's heavy funky snakefoot! Al's drums and percussion are furiously frenetic, and he also plays a lot of keyboards – and other players include Tom Scott on tenor, Dave Grusin on clavinet, Victor Feldman on bongos and congas, and Charles Meeks on bass. A few tracks have vocals – by Marty McCall, Jackie Ward, and Caroline Willis – as well as Alphonse himself and the album's also got two very nice break-oriented tracks – "Snake Walk" and "New York City" – both with nice hard drums! Titles include a number of other good fusion groovers, like "Without A Reason", "Just Like the Sun", "Before You Leave", "Just Like The Sun", and "Mouzon Moves On". CD

Citrus SunPeople Of Tomorrow ... CD
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy .... $16.99
A really sweet set from this Incognito side project – a group who are even jazzier than usual work from Bluey and crew! The album's mostly instrumental – save for some great guest vocals from Valerie Etienne – and the focus is on longer solos on keyboards, guitar, and trumpet – all spun out over the kind of classic grooves you'd expect from Incognito! Think of the record as a jazz fusion project from the late 70s, with some R&B undercurrents – just the kind of set that only a rare few like Bluey could do so well. Valerie sings on a great cover of Terry Callier's "What Color Is Love", and the album also features an instrumental take on "What's Going On", plus the tracks "Yesterday Detroit", "Cooking With Walter", "Tonight We Dance", "Mais Uma Vez", and "People Of Tomorrow".

Full FlavaSweetest Flava – The Best Of Full Flava ... CD
Dome (UK), 2000s. New Copy .... $16.99
Wonderfully warm soul from Full Flava – a UK group with the same commitment to classic modes we love in the music of Incognito! Unlike Incognito, Full Flava have never gotten huge exposure on our shores – which makes this music mighty fresh, even though the set's a collection of older work – and a lot like Incognito, Full Flava often use different female singers in the lead – which gives their grooves a great sense of variety, thanks to super-strong guest appearances from vocalists who include Chantay Savage, Donna Gardier, Carleen Anderson, Ruby Turner, Kelli Sae, Ce Ce Peniston, Joy Rose, and Beverlei Brown – each of whom get a chance to shine on at least one track in this collection! Titles include "September", "Love's Comin At Ya", "The Glow Of Love", "Too Much Too Late", "I Need You Tonight (tonight's the night rmx)", "Was That All It Was", "You Are The Universe (universal truth rmx)", "Last Time", and "Change".

New JivaSun & Moon ... CD
Soulnari, 2005. Used .... $9.99
Finally – the first full length album by Jiva, a group that we've loved for their singles in recent years, and have been dying to hear more of! Jiva are one of the strongest acts on the current Atlanta scene – a warmly soulful group who've also got a nice touch of jazz – and a wonderful sound that's always lightly grooving and strongly positive! Most tunes have more than one singer handling the vocals – not really in a chorus style, but in a widely-voiced mode that reminds us a bit of the approach used by Incognito on some of their best work. But almost even better is the instrumentation of the tunes – because most tracks have a core sound of guitar and keyboards that dance together beautifully – but which is often also fleshed out by bits of flute, tenor sax, and trumpet. There's a warm glow here that's completely sublime – and a sound that few other groups could carry off this well – all making for a perfect little album that really expands on the promises of the group's first few singles! Titles include "Mantra 1", "Confessions Of A Man", "Free Falling", "Swept Away", "I Realized", "Stars", "Sun & Moon", "Love Chooses Lovers", and "Daydreamer". CD

Mighty FireNo Time For Masquerading/Mighty Fire ... CD
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy .... $16.99
A pair of overlooked gems from Mighty Fire – back to back on a single CD! No Time For Masquerading is a wonderful debut full length from Mighty Fire – a group whose roots lead back to lots of previous work for Motown, and as The Flakes – stepping out here as a tight quintet with a wonderfully focused sound! Despite the 80s date of the record, the sound feels like the best combo funky soul from the previous decade – really sharp and on the money, but never commercial or chart-sounding at all – a perfect balance of so many wonderful warm elements, with the kind of jazzy touches you might hear in later groups like Incognito or Brand New Heavies. Guitarist Mel Bolton handles the arrangements, and most of the songwriting too – and trumpeter Harry Kim handles the horns, with the same warm vibe he'd later bring to his work with Earth Wind & Fire. Titles include "Sweet Fire", "Love Fantasy", "I Could Write A Love Song", "Missing You", and "Look What You Made Me Do". Mighty Fire is smooth stepping soul from a group who burn with a great mellow version of their name, which really helps to focus their energy throughout! There's a cool, classy vibe to the set – one that draws on the professional strengths of some of the group members, who also find a way to keep things personal and down to earth too – especially at the time of the album's release, when so many other folks were rushing to electrify their groove, and replace a lot of humanity with keyboards and drum programs. Most of the instrumentation is still in the live funk mode – played by the core members of the quintet – and titles include "You Satisfy Me", "Just A Little Bit", "Heavy Rotation", "Start It Up", "Sweet Lady", and "You Got Everything".

Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy .... $16.99
A tremendous little record from Muzart – upbeat, positive, and wonderfully grooving right from the start – served up in a beautiful blend of club rhythms and righteous soul, all with a sense of precision that we haven't heard this well in years! The vibe here is a bit contemporary, but there's a classic care to the record right from the start – an approach that instantly has the group at the level of major groovers like Incognito or The Rurals – but with a fresh, youthful feel that really befits their look on the cover and their origin! Everything's got a sense of energy and surprise that goes way beyond the usual – a commitment to really make things interesting from the ground up – and not just phone in some soulful message over half-baked grooves. Acoustic elements dance along nicely with electric ones – and titles include "Jukebox", "Oh Yeah", "Long Long Time", "The Great I Am", "Moemedi", "Not In Tha Mood", and "The Party After". CD

Sunburst BandUntil The End Of Time Presented By Joey Negro ... CD
Z Records (UK), 2004. Used .... $11.99
A soaring batch of boogie from the Sunburst Band – the group's long-awaited second album, and just as incredible as the first! Dave Lee's really gone all out for this session – dipping back into his classic references to feature vocals by older club singers that include Norma Jean and Lucy Martin of Chic, Taka Boom, and even Linda Clifford – while still getting the group to groove in that instant-classic blend of clubby rhythms and jazzy riffs! The sound is incredible – like finding some lost indie disco album from the end of the 70s – steeped in soulful production, and coming across as a stone winner on every single track! Imagine the excitement you felt when you first heard Incognito – and at that, you've only got a small bit of the sound! Titles include "Twinkle", "We Will Turn You On", "Until The End Of Time", "Fly Away (parts 1 & 2)", "Far Beyond", and "Just Do It". CD

Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs .... $16.99
Richly soulful sounds for a mighty nice price – with a lot of great tunes by soul legends and contemporary torch carriers alike – in a nicely paced 3CD set! A good deal of the tracks here put a contemporary twist on the sophisticated soul sounds of the later 70s and into the 80s – the kind that eschewed trends for an easygoing, timeless vibe – and still sounds fresh, as practiced by long-time faves such as Bluey from Incognito, Adriana Evans, Maysa and many more current acts, legends like The Jones Girls, Keni Burke and Leon Ware, and many more. It's got some nice little smooth soul tunes, too, with 35 tracks on 3CDs: "Get 2 Know U" by Tyrone Lee, "Is It Me You're Thinking Of" by Soul Talk, "Take A Chance On Me" by Bluey, "Change" by Natasha Watts, "Jukebox" by Muzart, "RSVP" by James Day feat Donnie, "1978 (Leave The Radio On)" by Ed Motta, "Brighter Than The Sun" by Incognito feat Kelli Sae, "To The Sky" by Heston, "Open Sesame" by Beggar & Co, "Never Thought" by Adriana Evans, "It's You" by Keni Burke, "Work Me" by Leon Ware, "Love Has No Recession" by Kindred The Family Soul feat Fred Yonnet, "She's Got That Kinda" by Kloud 9, "Walk Away" by Maysa and more.

BBE (UK), Mid 90s-Early 2000s. Used 4CD .... $24.99
Part two of this stunning collection of the work of the duo known as Masters At Work! This 4CD collection showcases MAW's amazing ability to blend a wide range of influences from house, classic disco, hip hop, and Latin into a dancefloor friendly mix that not only sounds fresh and up-to-date, but which also has a very strong respect for grooves of the past. MAW have worked with so many different artists over the past 5 years, that this collection ends up being as much a rich document of the growth of club and soul music in general, as it is a testament to their own stunning work. Like the first volume in this series, every track is a killer – and like the first, this is a overstuffed package that's got a huge amount of tracks! Titles include "To Be In Love" by India, "Divine Love" by Ultra Note, "Days Like This" by Kenny Lattimore, "The Ghetto/El Barrio" by George Benson, "MAW Expensive" by Masters At Work, "Watching Windows" by Roni Size/Reprazent, Atmosfear's "Dancing In Outer Space", "Bangin" by Kenlou 6, Monday Michiru's "Sunshine After the Rain", "Around the World" from Daft Punk, "Desire" by Nu Colors, "Are You Using Me" by Luther Vandross, "What'cha Gonna Do" by Eternal, "Spirit" by Cunnie Williams, "Recue Me" by Sunkids, Incognito's "Always There", "I Want You Back" by Mel B, and 4 tracks from Nuyorican Soul: "Mind Fluid", "You Can Do It Baby", "It's Alright, I Feel It", and "Runaway"!

The first we've heard from this UK group – but given the strength of the record, we're betting we'll be digging them for many years to come! The album's a great no-nonsense contemporary soul affair – put together in a really old school sort of way that recalls the energy of Brand New Heavies or Incognito at their best – with a similar blend of funk and jazz alongside some positive, upbeat lyrics – and an overall groove that's definitely inspired by the best of the 70s soul generation! Male and female vocals mix together to give the record a nice full sound – and titles include "Rainy Day In London", "There's A Time For Everything", "Classic Lady", "Distance Can Be Sweet", "Give Into The Night", and "Morning Light".

New AzymuthAurora – Remixes & Originals ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2011/2013. New Copy 2 CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great reworking of this sweet sweet album from Azymuth – served up in a package that features the core original album, plus all the great remixes that came afterward! The core record is heavy Fender Rhodes from Azymuth – sounding almost better here than we've heard them for years! There's a stripped-down, all-classic feel that takes us right back to the group's best work of the 70s – partly because Jose Roberto Bertrami sticks to Fender Rhodes exclusively on the set – using the classic keyboards with a righteous vibe that really brings a hell of a lot of soul to play! And there's also a bit of Incognito help on the production, which helps ensure just the right sound – nothing too modern, nor too gimmicky – just pure Brazilian fusion all the way through – proof that the old ways are still often the best. Titles include "In My Treehouse", "Isso E Partido Alto", "Carnaval Legrand", "Diz No Pe", "Meu Mengo", "Crazy Clock", and "Aurora". The remixes really take off strongly – and push the group's jazzy roots into rich new territory for the clubs – on cuts that include "Aurora (4 Hero rmx)", "In My Treehouse (We Are The Horsemen rmx)", "Ta Nessa Ainda Bicho (Maddslinky rmx)", "Carnaval Legrand (Opolopo rmx)", "Diz No Pe (Kirk Degiorgio rmx)", "Crazy Clock (LTJ Xperience rmx)", and "Ta Nessa Ainda Bicho (Zed Bias 4 x 4 rmx)".

The sun shines brightly on Mario Biondi – really making this record sparkle with a charm that goes way beyond Mario's previous albums – a quality that's less retro than before, and which shows Biondi as a growing soul star with really universal appeal! There's still some of the old school jazz in the mix that we love from Mario's Schema work – but the album's also got a fuller production style at times, one that really expands the palette of Biondi's colors, and which has him working here with help from key guests who include Omar, Leon Ware, Al Jarreau, Incognito, and Chaka Khan – and even a bit of organ from the James Taylor Quartet! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick helped co-write a good number of tracks on the set – and titles include "Shine On", "Come To Me", "Woman Woman", "What Have You Done To Me", "Never Stop", "La Voglia La Pazzia L'Idea", "Girl Blue", "Light To The World", and "Catch The Sunrise".

The best work we've heard in years from Terry Callier – the legendary soul singer from Chicago who's finally getting his due! This album avoids many of the mistakes of Terry's recent comeback efforts – and has him working with the best of the London scene – extremely fitting, as London's always given Terry some of his biggest support, and were crucial in bringing him back from obscurity! Most of the tunes on the set are produced by Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick, of Incognito – and they go for a spacious sound that's a strong extension of Terry's classic work for Cadet – rough vocals and acoustic guitar mixed with warmer keyboards, tight rhythms, and touches of strings. The album also features guest appearances by Paul Weller, Marc Mac of 4 Hero, and a number of other important London forces – and tracks include "Brother To Brother", "Imagine A Nation", "Monuments Of Mars", "Darker Than A Shadow", "Running Around", and "Speak Your Piece". CD features 14 tracks in all – including "Turn This Mutha", "Caravan Of Love", "Sierra Leone", "Just My Imagination", and "Tokyo Moon". CD

New Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 1997 to 2000 ... CD
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2000. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from one of the most important production teams of recent times! Jazzanova have sharply defined the modern European taste for Brazilian and Latin-inflected grooves on the dancefloor – beginning in the mid 90s with work for the (then) new Compost Records imprint, and working up to present days with countless remix efforts for other artists. Sadly, Jazzanova have yet to cut an album of their own work – and this double-length set is probably the best full way to experience their rich talents. It features 20 tracks in all, many with a strong Brazilian or bossa flavor, and most with a tight dancefloor approach to jazz. Titles include "We Who Are Not As Others" by 4 Hero, "Soul Power" by Marcshmellows, "Carajillo" by Truby Trio, "Get Into My Groove" by Incognito, "Amazon Adventure" by Azymuth, "Words Of Love" by Soul Bossa Trio, "Welcome To The Party" by Har-You Percussion Group, "Planet Of Breaks" by Visit Venus, "Burnin" by Tate's Place, "Toda Tersafeira" by Soul Quality Quartet, "Circe" by Ursula Rucker, "Fifths" by Ski, and "Complete Life" by Liquid Lounge – all remixed by Jazzanova!

New Oneness Of JujuAfrican Rhythms ... LP
Black Fire, 1975. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark of 70s Afro-styled jazz – and the first album by this famous underground collective! Oneness of Juju were a Washington DC-based group that grew out of the ashes of the Juju avant jazz ensemble – formed in the culturally rich African-American community of DC in the 70s, with spiritual and political aspirations that stretched far beyond the average funky combo. This first album is a masterful blend of percussion, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – alternating vocal tracks with harder-hitting jazz instrumentals, all held together under the leadership of sax player Plunky Nakabinde – a reedman whose work here alone is worth the price of admission – laid out nicely alongside some great percussion, Fender Rhodes, and wonderfully worm vocals on a few tracks. The album's one of the greatest independent soul jazz albums of the 70s – and it's filled with great tracks, such as the breakbeat classic "African Rhythms" and "Liberation Dues" – plus "Kazi", "Funky Wood", "Don't Give Up", "Poo Too", and "Incognito".

New Dokta VenomBurnt Roses EP ... 12-inch
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A new project from Dokta Venom – who you may just know as Venom – son of Bluey from Incognito, and a frequent partner of that funky group as well! The style here is very much Venom's own – lean club tracks that lie somewhere in a space between house and disco, depending on the tune – as some moments are pretty lean, with just beats and keyboards – while others have a fuller, more developed instrumental vibe, and some of the older feel you'd know from Incognito. Titles include "Only U", "Burnt Roses", "Space Dust", and "Rum Vapour". 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Alex Malheiros & Banda Utopia with Sabrina MalheirWave ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2009. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Beautiful grooves from Alex Malheiros – best known for his bass work in Azymuth, but stepping out here in a warm and wonderful set of his own! The groove here really takes us back to the sunny, soulful fusion we first loved when Azymuth hit the scene in the 70s – and Malheiros' guidance of the groove is really felt strongly in the album's warm-rolling basslines – a beautiful complement to a lineup that also includes Fender Rhodes, tenor, soprano sax, flute, trumpet, and trombone – plus a bit of occasional vocals from Sabrina Malheiros! Production is wonderful – handled by Daniel Maunick with some of the warmth of his Incognito work – and IG Culture comes in at the end to remix four of the album's tracks – almost creating a mini-modern suite to complement to the core 70s vibe of the record. Titles include "The Wave", "Corpo", "Copa A Noite", "Solar", "Sem Pressa", "Baixo Partido", "Serenity", "Uno Esta", and "4 Eyed Viper" – plus remixes of "The Wave" and "Uno Esta", the latter of which is a version of the Bobbi Humphrey classic!

New Personal LifeMorning Light ... LP
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The first we've heard from this UK group – but given the strength of the record, we're betting we'll be digging them for many years to come! The album's a great no-nonsense contemporary soul affair – put together in a really old school sort of way that recalls the energy of Brand New Heavies or Incognito at their best – with a similar blend of funk and jazz alongside some positive, upbeat lyrics – and an overall groove that's definitely inspired by the best of the 70s soul generation! Male and female vocals mix together to give the record a nice full sound – and titles include "Rainy Day In London", "There's A Time For Everything", "Classic Lady", "Distance Can Be Sweet", "Give Into The Night", and "Morning Light". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2012. New Copy 3 CD .... Out Of Stock
40 tracks, at one mighty nice price – and a killer entry in the long-running Soul Lounge series! Think "soul" more than "lounge" – and get past the Hed Kandi-like image on the cover – because this stuff is the real deal – a great collection of Neo Soul gems pulled from the rich catalog of Dome Records – plus excellent tracks from other contemporary labels too! There's plenty to love here if you love our Neo Soul section – and we dare say that the track selection here is as good as we would have chosen, were we to put out such a set. Titles include "Nights" by Sy Smith with Rahsaan Patterson, "You Got Love" by Kindred The Family Soul, "Like This" by Avery Sunshine, "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" by Gregory Porter, "Get Myself Together (souldynamic rmx)" by Angela Johnson, "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)" by Incognito, "In The Thick Of It" by Sunburst Band with Angela Johnson, "This Is What You Are" by Mario Biondi, "Sweetness" by Carleen Anderson, "Warm Human" by Heston, "Never In Your Sun" by Khari Cabral Simmons with India Arie, "Body Language" by Anthony David, and "Teardrops" by Avani.

New Brand New HeaviesForward ... CD
Shanachie, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Brand New Heavies back in action – and sounding every bit as great as always! The group still has that sublime mix of soul, jazz, and funk that's made them so great right from the start – a mode that's steeped in classic influences from the 60s and 70s, yet finds a way to come out sounding really fresh and unique on every track! Instrumentation is razor-sharp, and mostly live – and vocals are by N'Dea Davenport, Jan Kincaid, Dawn Joseph, and Simon Bartholomew – creating a nice mix of personalities that make the record feel even more joyously collaborative than ever – almost as if the group's borrowed a page from the Incognito book – and the great way that combo has of coming together. The sound is warm and flowing throughout – never stiff or commercial – and titles include "Heaven", "Turn The Music Up", "Do You Remember", "On The One", "Sunlight", "Forward", "Addicted", and "A Little Funk In Your Pocket".

New Oneness Of JujuAfrican Rhythms ... CD
Black Fire, 1975. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A landmark of 70s Afro-styled jazz – and the first album by this famous underground collective! Oneness of Juju were a Washington DC-based group that grew out of the ashes of the Juju avant jazz ensemble – formed in the culturally rich African-American community of DC in the 70s, with spiritual and political aspirations that stretched far beyond the average funky combo. This first album is a masterful blend of percussion, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – alternating vocal tracks with harder-hitting jazz instrumentals, all held together under the leadership of sax player Plunky Nakabinde – a reedman whose work here alone is worth the price of admission – laid out nicely alongside some great percussion, Fender Rhodes, and wonderfully worm vocals on a few tracks. The album's one of the greatest independent soul jazz albums of the 70s – and it's filled with great tracks, such as the breakbeat classic "African Rhythms" and "Liberation Dues" – plus "Kazi", "Funky Wood", "Don't Give Up", "Poo Too", and "Incognito".

New Mario BiondiSun ... LP
Sony (Italy), 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
The sun shines brightly on Mario Biondi – really making this record sparkle with a charm that goes way beyond Mario's previous albums – a quality that's less retro than before, and which shows Biondi as a growing soul star with really universal appeal! There's still some of the old school jazz in the mix that we love from Mario's Schema work – but the album's also got a fuller production style at times, one that really expands the palette of Biondi's colors, and which has him working here with help from key guests who include Omar, Leon Ware, Al Jarreau, Incognito, and Chaka Khan – and even a bit of organ from the James Taylor Quartet! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick helped co-write a good number of tracks on the set – and titles include "Shine On", "Come To Me", "Woman Woman", "What Have You Done To Me", "Never Stop", "La Voglia La Pazzia L'Idea", "Girl Blue", "Light To The World", and "Catch The Sunrise".

New Mighty FireNo Time For Masquerading ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Used .... Out Of Stock
A wonderful debut full length from Mighty Fire – a group whose roots lead back to lots of previous work for Motown, and as The Flakes – stepping out here as a tight quintet with a wonderfully focused sound! Despite the 80s date of the record, the sound feels like the best combo funky soul from the previous decade – really sharp and on the money, but never commercial or chart-sounding at all – a perfect balance of so many wonderful warm elements, with the kind of jazzy touches you might hear in later groups like Incognito or Brand New Heavies. Guitarist Mel Bolton handles the arrangements, and most of the songwriting too – and trumpeter Harry Kim handles the horns, with the same warm vibe he'd later bring to his work with Earth Wind & Fire. Titles include "Sweet Fire", "Love Fantasy", "I Could Write A Love Song", "Missing You", and "Look What You Made Me Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, missing the lyric sleeve. Cover has some wear.)
