Let The Sun Shine In

CD


4.80 5

Beautiful material from this legendary Bay Area soul jazz combo! The Sons & Daughters of Lite have an incredibly spiritual sound – one that sounds sort of like the best groups on the Strata East label, with touches of Roy Ayers or James Mason-esque soulfulness, but with a little less polish. Many of the cuts have sweet female vocals in the lead – with backing that includes vibe, electric piano, tenor, alto, and percussion by Babatunde. The record's a great one if you dig spiritual jazz funk – along the lines of Gary Bartz, The Pharoahs, or Oneness Of Juju – and Luv N Haight have done a stellar job of repackaging the album! Titles include the classic mellow groover "Let The Sun Shine In", plus "Fly Away", "Operation Feed Yourself", "Darkuman Junktion", and "Ju Ju's Door".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Two giants from the glory days of the BYG/Actuel avant scene in France – working perfectly here on a contemporary set of duets! We haven't heard from Jacques Coursil in a while, but his trumpet work here is really stunning – both in the inventive spirit of Bill Dixon, to whom the ... CD

Sisters Where
Rogue Art (France), 2014. New Copy
A beautiful combination of flute and bass – the former from Nicole Mitchell, the latter from Joelle Leandre – both players who really open up in the space of a spare record like this! Leandre's got a very lyrical, spiritual tone to her instrument – but also lots of sharp edges ... CD

A really unusual project from bassist William Parker – a great tribute to the legendary Godard film Alphaville, done with music that's a surprisingly great fit! There's almost a jazz soundtrack feel to the record at points – a bit straighter than usual for Parker, but still with plenty ... CD

Strata/180 Proof, Mid 70s. New Copy
An ultra-hip set of soul jazz from 70s Detroit – recorded back in the day by saxophonist Sam Sanders, but never issued at the time! The album's got this wonderfully warm, open sort of vibe – a quality that's kind of like an indie take on the CTI mode of the time, but much more relaxed ... CD

RCA/Mushroom (Australia), 1974. New Copy
One of the funkiest, most soulful albums to come from Australia in the 70s – and the crowning achievement of singer Renee Geyer! Renee's got a style that makes her a blue-eyed equivalent of Chaka Khan during her years with Rufus – and the band here shares a very similar style, with an ... CD
