New Monday MichiruSoulception ... CD
Adventure Music, 2012. Used ... $5.99
Fantastic sounds from Monday Michiru – quite possibly her greatest album in years, and one that really draws together all the best elements of her style! The vocals are wonderful – soaring, fluid, and filled with soul – almost more confident than ever – and set to these small group jazz arrangements that still bounce around with lots of contemporary rhythms – yet all played live, almost in a clubjazz mode – which makes for a perfect backdrop for Monday's lyrics! As always, the vibe is righteous, and the spirit is totally uplifting – the kind of amazing music that's held us rapt, watching her career for the past two decades – never disappointed, and always blown away by the rich progression in her music. Monday plays a bit of flute on the record, Ed Motta sings guest vocals on a version of the Milton Nascimento classic "Bridges" – and other titles include "Adventures", "What Is In A Soul", "Map Of The Soul", "What Defines You", "Brasilianos", "Til Morning Comes Again", and "The Elusive Song".

Lisa OnoDream ... CD
Deck Disk (Brazil), 1999. Used ... $14.99
Bossa versions of American jazz standards – done by Japanese singer Lisa Ono with arrangements by Oscar Castro Neves, sung in English. Whew, that's a mouthful – but the album's a nice one, and it's one of Lisa's more expensive Japanese-only recordings that have finally been released in Brazil. The album does a great job of showing the influence of American composers on Brazilian styles – as you'll hear on tunes like "Undecided", "Tea for Two", "In the Mood", "Night & Day", and "As Time Goes By" – and the album also features one original tune, "Angel's Eyes", which Lisa wrote with singer Monday Michiru!

VariousRoyalties Overdue ... CD
Mo Wax (UK), 1994. Used 2CDs ... $33.99
A nice piece of history! It's easy in these post-Headz days to forget the sort of records Mo Wax was putting out in the early days, and though there's some seminal trip hop included here, like Shadow's "Influx" and RPM's "Food Of My De-Rhythm", there's some straight up acid jazz too, and not bad at that, like the early DJ Krush single "Slow Chase", with live sax & organ, and his collaboration with Monday Michiru "Hear Between The Silence", Marden Hill's "Come On", the Gil Scott-Heron-ish "If" by Step and the Federation's "Life So Free". But the real kicker fo rus was the inclusion of one of our favorite early singles, Palm Skin Productions beautiful reading of Miles' classic "In A Silent Way", with Chris Bowden blowing beautifully on soprano.

VariousShowa 64 – A Definitive Compilation Of House, Soul, Jazz, Downbeat, & Abstract Beats Full Of Eastern Promise From 1975-1998 ... CD
Disorient/Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
Not really a funk compilation, but a sparkling batch of rare tracks from Japan – most of which were never issued in the west! The folks at Mr. Bongo put this set together with the aid of their operatives in Tokyo, and its one of the freshest we've heard in a long time. Most of the tracks are of more recent vintage, and include work by Japanese artists we do stock at times – like Ryuichi Sakamoto ("Riot In Lagos"), Pizzicato 5 ("Porno 3003"), Monday Michiru (in a remixed version of Disco Dub Band's "For The Love Of Money"), DJ Krush (doing a remix of "Shangri-la of the Europa" by Sugiza), and U.F.O. ("Off Road – Karafuto Remix"). Other stuff's of stranger variety – like the wild comedy bits by Snakeman Show, who are actually YMO under another name, doing hilarious parodies of English speaking people! Other tracks include "Speak Low" by Anne Young & Yuji Ohno Trio, "Sound Sniper In Sri Lanka" by World Famous, "Mic Check" by Cornelius, "Osorezan" by Kiyoshi Yamaya, and "Time & Days" by Crue-l Grand Orchestra. Lots of variety, a lovely package, superb notes, and a strikling mad batch of tracks that surprised us to no end! CD
