Michael HendersonSolid (with bonus track) ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The very first album from Michael Henderson – but a set that already finds him very much at the top of his game – thanks to previous work with Miles Davis and Norman Connors! Both artists gave Henderson a chance to do different things with his music, and by the time of this record, Michael's got both an ear for a funky bassline and a way of laying down a mellow vocal, too – a great blend of techniques that really helps give the record a lot more depth than some of Henderson's contemporaries! Unlike other bassists-turned-singers of the period, Michael never lets his core instrument take off too much and get in the way of the vocals – and instead, he shows a great sense of restraint for compressing down all the best elements into one mighty sweet groove. Titles include a version of "Valentine Love" that is different from the one recorded with Connors – plus the great original "Treat Me Like a Man", which is a nice nice sample cut from years back! Other gems include "Make Me Feel Better", "Let Love Enter", "Solid", "You Haven't Made It To The Top", and "Stay With Me This Summer". CD features the bonus track "You Haven't Made It To The Top (7" version)". CD

ImpressionsCheck Out Your Mind ... LP
Curtom, 1970. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Righteous late 60s soul from The Impressions – the group's last album with Curtis Mayfield in the lineup! The sound here follows heavily from the Young Mods and This Is My Country years – a heavier take on the trio's soul stylings than their work over at ABC in the mid 60s – pushed into more heady political territory, yet still informed with an unmatched approach to harmony soul. Arrangements are by Riley Hampton and Gary Slabo, and they've got some great psychedelic soul touches that are a perfect precursor to Curtis Mayfield's solo work to follow on Curtom – a great groove that steps out wonderfully with an undercurrent of funk in the mix. Henry Gibson plays some great congas on the set – again hinting at the Mayfield sound to come – and titles include "Check Out Your Mind", "Madam Mary", "We Must Be In Love", "Only You", "Say You Love Me", "Turn On To Me", "Do You Wanna Win", and "You're Really Something Sadie". LP, Vinyl record album

New Bobby JonesArrival Of Bobby Jones ... LP
Cobblestone, 1972. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent debut from saxophonist Bobby Jones – an extremely talented player whose work was a big part of the Charles Mingus group in the early 70s – and an artist who works with a surprising sense of soul! The album's got Bobby in a really great lineup – with sensitive backing from Charles McPherson on alto sax, Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – and 2 tracks feature some added whimsicality from Bob Dorough, who plays electric piano, and Sue Evans, who plays an assortment of percussion. Bob plays on the groovy tunes "Stone Bossa" and "Keepin Up With The Joneses" – and other tracks include "Thanks To Trane", "Ballad For Two Sons", "As The Crow Flies", and "Blues For The Brown Buddha". LP, Vinyl record album

New Matching MoleMatching Mole (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A record of pure genius – and one of the greatest albums ever to come out of the British jazz rock scene! Matching Mole was a bit of a supergroup at the time – one that featured the piano, drums, and voice of Robert Wyatt next to the guitar of Phil Miller – topped off by additional piano, organ, and electric piano – in a wonderfully spacey, wonderfully mellow style that's never been matched again! If you dig the quieter, gentler side of Wyatt's work – or some of Miller's most intimate recordings on Virgin – you'll totally flip over the album – but even that's not giving it it's full due, because the sound is totally unique. Wyatt's vocals are wonderfully personal, and almost heartbreaking at times – handled with a fragility that few others of his generation had the courage to match! Titles include "Part Of The Dance", "Signed Curtain", "O Caroline", "Instant Kitten", "Beer As In Braindeer", and "Dedicated To Hugh But You Weren't Listening". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousSoul Togetherness 2012 – 15 Modern Soul Room Gems ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Soul sounds that work perfectly together – on a set that's maybe the most compelling of the Soul Togetherness series so far! There's loads of great contemporary numbers here – some nuggets from the underground, a few more mainstream tracks, and even a few mixes that really transform the tunes – making their key appearance here in CD format. The vibe is deeply soulful throughout – as the set's put together by folks who also have a strong ear for classic soul and funk – and titles include "Turn It Up" by Kenny Thomas, "Don't Give Up" by Aaries, "Taking It Too Far" by Big Brooklyn Red, "Don't Wanna Wait" by Lew Kirton, "Save Our Freedom" by Bah Samba, "Running Around" by Cool Million, "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" by Gregory Porter, "Woo" by Anthony Hamilton, "Let It Go" by Jazzanova, "Thinking About You" by Maurissa Rose, "Share My Love" by R Kelly, and "You Did It Again" by Soulpersona & Princess Freesia.

New VariousTragic Songs From The Grassy Knoll – John F Kennedy 50th Anniversary Collection ... CD
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest sub-genres of music you'll ever hope to discover – a whole host of songs that were issued in the wake of the untimely early death of John F Kennedy – a batch of tribute tunes to the late president, served up in a unique collection of rare singles! There's a surprisingly large number of country songs on the set – no surprise, as the story format of the genre works perfectly for the tributes – as does the country style of stepping out with a monologue in the middle. A few other numbers are more rocking, but in a somber way – and all together, the singles unearth this lost musical legacy that really demonstrates the power of the man at the time. Titles include "Memories Of Kennedy" by Hasil Adkins, "Tragedy Of John F Kennedy" by The Justice Brothers, "A Tragedy In Dallas" by James Dotson, "John F Kennedy" by Buddy Pastuck, "Lee Harvey Was A Friend Of Mine" by Homer Henderson, "Two Brothers" by Bobby Jenzen, "Tribute To President Kennedy" by Johnny Dee, and "A Sunny Day In Dallas" by The Honorable Bob Peters.

New VariousWithout Limits Presented By The Modern Soul Collective ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive modern soul – hand-picked by the UK's Modern Soul Collective with a sweet selection of classics and some especially nice overlooked gems! The groove here is smooth, but never sleepy – upbeat, but not really disco – and instead that great blend of modes that really characterized the modern soul sound of the late 70s and early 80s! The package is designed as a follow-up to the previous No Boundaries collection, but we honestly dig it even more than that one – and the CD features a few more recent cuts mixed in with the older classics too. Titles include "You're Messing Up A Good Thing" by Heywood Cash, "Looks Like Rain" by Main Ingredient, "We Need Love" by Directions Band, "The Magic That You Do" by The Realistics, "Too Many People (Blacksmith dancehall mix)" by Pauline Henry, "Can You Feel My Love" by Khemistry, "I'll Be True" by Cookie Woodson, "Under Construction" by Al Supersonic & The Teenagers, "In The City" by Jesse Gomez & SWB, "Rough Out Here" by The Modulations, "Strip Me Naked" by Love Peace & Happiness, and "Make It Last" by DJ Jazzy Jeff with Ayah.

New Maria Joao PiresMaria Joao Pires – Complete Solo Recordings (20CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 20 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from one of the most solid soloists to emerge in the Deutsche Grammophon catalog in recent decades – pianist Maria Joao Pires, an artist who is able to hold onto all the rich tradition of the imprint, while still moving forward with a very personal, very sensitive approach! This package features Maria at her best – working mostly solo, and on a few "four hands" compositions with Ricardo Castro – a set of 20 albums that are each presented with their original artwork! The package is similar to – but almost better than – some of DG's boxes of material from Martha Agerich – and composers include Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven – plus superb readings of work by Chopin, Schubert, and Schumann.

New Gil Scott-HeronVillage Gate – New York 1976 ... CD
Klondike, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Gil Scott-Heron like we've never heard him before – working live at the Village Gate, with a style that's even more open and personal than some of his other live records at the time – given the small, intimate setting of the club! The group is very jazzy – with plenty of keyboards from Brian Jackson, and some sweet flute lines that really help warm up the tunes next to the vocals – and the whole performance was captured for a radio broadcast, so the overall quality is nice and strong – and the tracks have a long, open flow that's mighty nice! Titles include "17th Street", "It's Your World", "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", "Must Be Something We Can Do", and "Johannesburg" – plus a nice "Intro Jam" too. CD

New SonzeiraBrasil Bam Bam Bam (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Universal (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest records we've heard in years from Gilles Peterson – a wonderful project that brings together classic and contemporary Brazilian talents, and some key London artists as well! The lineup features giants from the sorts of older Brazilian records that Gilles hipped us to many years ago – like percussionist Nana Vasconcelos, and singers Marcos Valle, Elza Soares, and Wilson Das Neves – plus contemporary artists like Kassin on bass (he also co-produced too), and Seu Jorge, Lucas Santtana, or Mart'nalia on vocals – and great British artists like Ski Oakenfull on keyboards, Sean O'Hagan on guitar, and Bembe Segue, Valerie Etienne, and Rob Gallagher on vocals! The list of participants is even bigger than this – and the album was recorded in London, Brighton, and Rio – with arrangements by many of the participants too – all to create this complex criss-crossing of the classic and contemporary, British and Brazilian, all with the kind of 21st Century crackle that only Gilles Peterson could carry off this well. Titles include "Where Nana Hides", "Brasil Pandeiro", "Sambaio", "The Mystery Of Man", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Estrelar", "Bam Bam Bam", "Um Toque", and "City Of Saints". CD
(SHMCD pressing.)
