It always feels like we're waiting a long time for a new record from Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – but it's always well worth the wait! This time around, they've found a way to focus their energies even more than before – still sticking strongly in the horn-heavy groove that we love, but also opening things up a bit more on the rhythm tip, too – and going for production that, if anything, makes them sound even more earnest, honest, and spontaneous than before! The record really preserves the live energy that makes the group so compelling – that razor sharp criss-crossing of jazz traditions and styles – steeped in a Chicago legacy that includes Sun Ra and Phil Cohran, but coming across with a hell of a lot more groove than either of them too. Titles include "Touch The Sky", "Kryptonite", "Pluto", "Black Boy", "World Champions", and "Starfighter".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the ... CD

Angle 3/Truth & Soul, 1979. New Copy
Early early work from Lee Fields – a set originally issued at the end of the 70s, but with a raw funky power that's much more like music from a decade before! The set was a real anomaly at the time, and was passed over for years – but through the decades, it's earned Lee legendary ... CD

Hope Street (Australia), 2014. New Copy
A pretty huge leap forward for The Bombay Royale – the Bollywood funk-inspired combo who bring some Indian charm to the fertile Australian funk scene – and a whole lot more! Funk-era Bollywood soundtracks are still a huge part of the what they do, but there's a whole lot more going on ... CD

Soul Fire/Truth & Soul, 2002. New Copy Gatefold

Sony (UK), 2014. New Copy
A very unusual set of work – original vocal tracks pulled from classic soul and jazz songs – all set to new bossa nova rhythms done especially for the project! Sony Records gave Studio Rio free access to its vaults – and the team was able to pull off original vocals, then rework ... CD

Cultures Of Soul, 1970s/2011. New Copy
They're not kidding about the title on this one – although they might have added "weirdest" to the name, too! The songs here are all familiar ones, especially if you dig rare grooves from the 60s and 70s – but the versions you'll hear are definitely unusual – often some ... CD

Magic Drum Orchestra
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2014. New Copy
The drums here are certainly magic – a great live percussion ensemble who play their own funky variation of a batucada groove! Like Brazilian batucada, the interplay between the drums is amazing – criss-crossing in sound, style, and rhythms – all at a level that's as magically ... CD
