GallianoGalliano 4 ... CD
Talkin' Loud (UK), 1996. Used ... $4.99
Like every Galliano album, this one offers the same quandry: there's great funky instrumental grooves, of the sort that would be really appreciated by fans of other albums in our acid jazz section, but they're marred by the presence of Galliano himself, rhyming and reciting his way through the cuts in a hipster jazz mode. The production on this album is especially compelling – and in an era when lots of other artists from earlier times were reaching for watered down drum n bass to liven up their albums, Galliano was using Demus on production to come up with some very nice funky soundscapes. Well, the choice is yours. We can only tell you that the album includes the cuts "Who Ate The Fly", "Slack Hands", "Ease Your Mind", "Best Lives Of Our Days", "Who's In Charge", and "Funny How". CD

IncognitoPositivity ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Universal, 1993. Used ... $2.99
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

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

Courtney PineAnother Story – Remixes From Modern Day Jazz Stories & Underground ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Mercury (UK), Mid/Late 90s. Used ... $9.99
Remixes of Pine's excellent crossover into the modern London groove scene, the Modern Day Jazz Stories LP. Given that this is the mid 90s, there's loads of jungle and drum and bass mixes here, but executed with grace and respect for the originals that makes them more timeless than many tracks of the era. 12 numbers in all: "I've Known Rivers (4 Hero rmx vol 1)", "Don't X'plain (Flytronix mix)", "The In-Sense Song (Raw Deal mix)", "Tryin' Times (Attica Blues rmx)", "Tryin' Times (Peshay mix)", "Don't X'Plain (Roni Size rmx)", "I've Known Rivers (Pressure Drop rivers run deeper rmx)", "Tryin' Times (Headstrong voc mix)", "The 37th Chamber (Flytronix mix)", "I've Known Rivers (4 Hero bossa)", "Don't X'Plain (Attica Blues head nod)" and "The In-Sense Song (The Mighty Strinths mix)".

Roni Size/ReprazentNew Forms 2 ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Universal (UK), 1997/2008. Used ... $2.99
An updated and expanded reissue of this seminal album – one that to set the pace for a new generation of beatmakers and foretoldl the sound of music to come, from the late 90s heyday of drum and bass! Perhaps the larger mainstream musical community never followed through on the promise, but that doesn't lessen Size and his crew's achievement. One of the few full length drum & bass recordings we find ourselves returning to, with a sound that places it in its era without sounding dated, combining hard stepping rhythms – some moving beyond his then dominant jump up sound – with jazzy, soulful production that merits it's place among the forward looking Talking Loud scene of the day. 17 tracks in all, all 13 of the original CD tracks re-edited for the 21st century, plus 4 fully new numbers, including "Brown Paper Bag", "New Forms", "Heart To Heart", "Less Is More", "Don't Hold Back", "Railings", "Lets Get It On", "Share The Fall", "Matter Of Fact", "Beatbox" and "Destination".

New United Future OrganizationUnited Future Organization (Urban Meets Nature) ... CD
Brownswood/Talkin' Loud (UK), 1993. Used ... $3.99
The classic album by one of the groups that has gone on to revolutionize the world of contemporary jazzy grooves. The UFO crew bring in a host of guest players – like Monday Michiru, Jon Hendricks, Galliano, and others – to weave together a host of styles – from Brazilian, to jazzy, to groovy – and lay the groundwork for the 21st Century soul movement that they're so richly a part of. Includes great remakes of Edu Lobo's "Upa Neguinho" and Jon Hendricks "I'll Bet You Never Thought I'd Find You", plus originals like "Vinyl Junkie", "The Sixth Sense" and "On Est Ensemble Sans Se Parler – LOVE".

New GallianoPlot Thickens ... CD
Talkin' Loud, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Probably the biggest album ever from Galliano – the London funky combo fronted by the vocals of modern jazz poet Rob Gallagher! The record nicely gets past some of the cliches that were starting to creep into Galliano's work – and opens up the bottom end of their groove a bit more with some earthier instrumentation and funkier rhythms that show that the combo wasn't just a showplace for Ghallagher's vocals, and could groove in a way that was every bit as nice as some of their best contemporaries on the Talkin Loud label. Titles include the group's surprisingly nice remake of "Long Time Gone", plus "Was This The Time", "Blood Lines", "Rise & Fall", "Twyford Down", "Down In The Galley", "Cold Wind", "Believe", "Little One", and "Better All The Time".

New SonzeiraBrasil Bam Bam Bam ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Harvest, 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily 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

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 VariousJames Brown's Funky People Part 3 ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Amazing – and the best yet in this legendary series! Like the other volumes, this is a collection of funky work produced by James Brown for other artists, most of it lifted from his legendary People Records imprint. However, unlike the others, or at least unlike the first volume, this volume's got some amazing stuff that almost never shows up on other reissues – and it's even got some incredible unreleased material! The whole thing's a super-heavy super-funky dip into some of the rarest James Brown-related material you can find – if you can find it at all in any other format. Titles include "Pick Up The Pieces One By One" by AABB, "There Was A Time" by Dee Felice Trio, "Doin The Do" by Bobby Byrd & The JBs, "Who Knows" by Beau Dollar, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (original rock version)" by James Brown, "Mr Hot Pants" by The Believers, "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose" by Lyn Collins (a 45-only track), "How You Gonna Get Respect?" by Hank Ballard, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles (a 45-only track), and "Blow Your Head (undubbed version)" by The JBs! Great stuff – and at this price, you'll be funky and rich! CD

Polydor (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
One of the best James Brown soul LPs from the 70's, with a great mix of funky tracks and deeper soul tracks. The latter is represented by the classics "Public Enemy #1" and "King Heroin", both hard soul political tracks. The funk is represented by "Talkin' Loud & Sayin' Nothing", "There It Is", and James's version of "I Need Help" (which was also recorded by Bobby Byrd). CD

New James BrownIn The Jungle Groove – Expanded & Remastered ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s/1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive – and one of the best James Brown compilations ever, filled with rare and unreleased material! This completely essential set features tracks pulled from James' best years ever – the mighty early 70s, when he was working with the JBs, and laying down tracks that would forever change the face of funk! The tunes on the album are right up there with the best work on classic albums like The Payback, Doin It To Death, Hot Pants, and any of the other killer Polydor funk albums by James – and most of them were pulled from sessions for those records, and brought together in this format for the first time in the late 80s. The centerpiece of the set is a 9 minute version of "Funky Drummer", and other highlights include new versions of "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose (remix)", "Soul Power (mono re-edit)", and "Talkin' Loud & Sayin' Nothin (remix)". The set's also got bonus beats of "Funky Drummer", a long single take of "Hot Pants (She Got To Use What She Got To Get What She Wants)" (8:42 minutes long!), and the nice rare track "I Got To Move" – previously unreleased, and nice and long! Plus, this new version features the previously unissued extended mix of "Blind Man Can See It". CD

New OmarMan ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $19.99
A killer set from Omar – an artist we've loved right from the start, and someone who's never ever let us down! The record's got a great lean feel – almost a return to the modes that Omar first released on his classic material for Talking Loud – that tight, no-nonsense approach to soul that really blows away most of the competition by showing that a heck of a lot can be done with just a little! Omar's vocals are very firmly in the lead – serving up positive, thoughtful lyrics that show why his work has always gone far beyond any mainstream cliches in R&B – and which continue to mark the man as one of the most powerful forces in the underground. The set's got guest work from Scratch Professor, Caron Wheeler, and a few others – but honestly, Omar's the Man who's really got us paying attention all the way through! Titles include "I Can Listen", "The Man", "Simplify", "I Love Being With You", "When You Touch We Touch", and "F*ck War Make Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Roni Size/ReprazentNew Forms ... CD
Mercury, 1997. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The album that was supposed to set the pace for a new generation of beatmakers and foretell the sound of music to come, from the late 90s heyday of drum and bass, when it seemed as if things were really poised to jump off for Roni Size and his Bristol massive. Perhaps the larger musical community never followed through on that promise, but that doesn't lessen Size and his crew's achievement here. One of the few full length drum & bass recordings we find ourselves returning to, with a sound that places it in its era without sounding dated, combining hard stepping rhythms – some moving beyond his then dominant jump up sound – with jazzy, soulful production that merits it's place among the forward looking Talking Loud scene of the day. 23 tracks in including "Brown Paper Bag", "New Forms", "Railing", "Lets Get It On", "Share The Fall (full vocal mix)", "Matter Of Fact", "Mad Cat", "Morse Code", "Beatbox", "Hi Potent", "Change My Life", "Jazz", "Hot Stuff", "Electricks", "Down" and "Destination".

New VariousMessin Around Root Down! – A Selection of Dancefloor Jazz, Funky Flavas, & Block Rockin Latin Beats ... CD
Verve/Universal (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great little set of jazzy grooves – put together by the Messin Around team from London's Jazz Cafe! The package features 18 groovy little gems – a mix of funk and strident jazz dancers, handled with the fresh approach of the London scene, and with a feel that reminds us a lot of some of the best Gilles Peterson compilations for Talking Loud. There's plenty of gems on here that haven't been reissued – plus other tunes that have provided samples for the likes of The Beastie Boys or Fat Boy Slim. Includes the totally rare Roy Ayers cut "Party Sex", worth the price of the compilation alone – plus "La Descarga Del Bobo" by Willie Bobo, "Cloudburst" by Jon Hendricks, "Outrageous" by Johnny Pate, "Burning Spear" by Kenny Burrell, "Jim On The Move" by Lalo Schifrin, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "Gimme Some More (very live)" by The JBs, "The Sidewinder" by Kai Winding, "Sunny" by Herb Albert, "Mathar" by Dave Pike, "Afrodisia (Snowboy rmx)" by Roy Hargrove's Cristal, "Au Right" by George Duke, and "Got Myself A Good Man" by Gladys Knight.
