Forgotten Art (Music)

CD (Item 595505) Strictly Jaz Unit, 2011 — Condition: New Copy

5.00 1

Chicago deep house player & producer Glenn Underground's deepest and most soul jazz-steeped effort to date! We really thought Glenn stepped up his game pretty decisively on the previous full length for his Strictly Jaz Unit label – and Forgotten Art is another major leap forward. This is modern instrumental club music at it's most soulful, jazz aware and able – the beats and rhythms drive the sound, but there's so much vibrant, live energy here – keys, horns and eclectic percussion in particular. Classic dance music from 70s jazz & disco to benchmark house influences flow in and out, but it's also profoundly contemporary without copping to current trends – in other words, it's straight up built to last. Nah, Glenn. . .we won't forget this one! Titles include "Strumming & Thinking", "Forgotten Art (Music)", "Safe At Home", "Robots & Bumblebees (A Tribute To Patrick Adams)", "Shiloh (A King's Return)", "Silent Pimp (Peace In My Place)", "Tabernacle", "What's Next" and "Peace For Nippon (Japan)",  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Vivid (Japan), 2014. New Copy
A cheesy cover, but one of the greatest albums we've heard so far from this jazzy Japanese combo – a set that has them sounding even more dynamic than ever – but with a slightly different vibe! The instrumentation somehow feels even leaner, but still has all that very bracing feel from ... CD

Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy
Gritty sounds from Guts – a set that might well be great enough on its own if it were instrumental – but which also features a surprising amount of guest work from folks who include Masta Ace, Grand Puba, Tanya Morgan, Rah Digga, Cody Chestnutt, Murs, and others! The lyricists really ... CD

CD...$5.99 16.98
Man, these guys keep blowing our minds again and again with each new album – stretching out even farther than before, yet still hanging on to all the best elements of their sound! This time around, Nostalgia 77 still have the bolder jazz style forged on their previous experimental recordings ... CD

Memoria
Schema (Italy), 2014. New Copy
Toco just gets better and better with each new record – to a point where it's almost impossible to separate the sound of this recent release with Brazilian classics from the 70s! The vibe is great – not a bossa rehash, but kind of a post-bossa style that's almost more in the territory ... CD

Eclipse
Fania, 2013. New Copy 2 CDs
Louie Vega on Fania Records – a long-overdue match that really makes for some amazing sounds on this set! The pairing isn't that much of a surprise – given that Louie's done plenty to keep Latin music alive in the past few decades in the clubs – from his own Nuyorican Soul ... CD

Saudade
ESL, 2014. New Copy
Maybe our favorite record ever from Thievery Corporation – and one that really stays true to the sound of all the styles that have inspired them! For over a decade, the duo have been playing with elements borrowed from bossa nova, old soundtracks, French pop, and lounge – but this is ... CD

Tawk Tomahawk
Flying Buddha, 2013. New Copy
A pretty remarkable set of spacey soul songcraft from Hiatus Kaiyote – a Melbourne group that blends moody, laidback live soul instrumentation with bubbling futuristic elements in a surprisingly seamless way – elevated even higher by strong songwriting and the soulful vocals of Nai Palm! ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A treasure trove of rare vocal group work from the Bay Area scene – all issued on the tiny Music City label, but work that easily matches similar sides from the east coast and Chicago! For some reason, much of the great west coast vocal group material of the late 50s and early 60s never got ... CD

Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
An excellent overview of the second half of the short run of the Ric & Ron labels – tiny imprints from New Orleans in the early years of soul music, but a crucial force in the development of the Crescent City sound! The work here is mostly from the early 60s, and really shows New Orleans ... CD

Too Hot To Stop
Mercury (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players ... CD

Freedom/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy
Groundbreaking sounds from the Norwegian scene of the late 60s – an album that's got George Russell's name on the cover, but which actually features brilliant performances from a quartet who'd go onto become huge names in the ECM scene of the 70s! Yet the sound here is quite different than ... CD
