Taking A Lesson From The Past

CD (Item 597875) P-Vine (Japan), 2012 — Condition: New Copy

CD


5.00 39

Mad heavy funk from this excellent Japanese combo – really hitting hard here on a host of covers of famous tunes – all returned to the group's sharp 70s instrumental approach! The groove is incredible – razor-sharp right from the start, and served up with perfect old school instrumentation – and just the right production to match – perfect for the tight horns in the lead, riffing guitar in the rhythms, and the warm organ that sews the whole thing together! And although we love their own songs, this set seems to sound extra-hip, given that it features work by Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Herbie Hancock, Led Zeppelin, and others – a wicked array of re-tooled tunes that includes "Tell Me A Bedtime Story", "Too High", "Mean Street", "Power Of Soul", "Exodus", "Space Dust", "The Immigrant Song", "Blackbyrd's Theme", and "KITT".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

New Ammo
Stoopid, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
Karl Denson's definitely got some new ammo this time around – a sharper, more hook-based approach to work with his usual funky groove! Denson's tenor and flute are still strong in the mix, and the record's still got the requisite Hammond, Fender Rhodes, funky basslines, and horns – but ... CD

Rhode Trip
Ubiquity, 1996. New Copy
CD...$5.99 16.98
Amazing – and after a decade it's still probably one of our favorite Ubiquity releases to date! To the unitiated, Rhode Trip is a killer album of jazzy funk by one of the best west coast groups on Ubiquity or any other label! They had some of the best cuts on the classic "Cookin'" ... CD

Crossing
Daptone, 2012. New Copy
Sublime work from one of the coolest funky combos around – a group who aren't content to just hit the same funky styles as other outfits – and one who really stretch strongly in their pursuit of new sounds! The set's definitely funky – especially on the drums – but there's ... CD

Budos Band III
Daptone, 2010. New Copy
A great third album from Staten Island instrumental funk titans The Budos Band – who've brought eclectic inspiration all along and have always colored from a much broader palette of styles than most of their peers – going even further this time out and delivering their best yet! The ... CD

Faithful Man
Truth & Soul, 2012. New Copy
Smoking soul from the mighty Lee Fields – and a set that really has him getting back to his roots, as well! The record's billed as a follow-up to the previous My World – but it's got a style that's much more deep soul, much more southern-tinged than that great record – a ... CD

Daptone, 2014. New Copy
Tremendous work from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – a set that took a bit longer to hit the racks than expected, but which really shows a richness that more than makes up for the delay! Sharon's a singer who's always been great – but she steps out strongly here with a sense of ... CD

Lluvia Con Sol
Disco De Hoy, 2013. New Copy
These guys just keep getting better and better – and this time around, they've got such a tight groove, it's hard not to compare the group with some of the best of the 70s salsa generation! Rhythms are right on the money, and the instrumentation is completely sublime – very jazzy, with ... CD

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra
Ropeadope, 2013. New Copy
CD...$5.99 12.98
Pretty groovy work from Jonathan Scales – a steel drum player by trade, but one who works here in a mode that's light years from any basic use of the instrument! The core approach is jazz, but the music is also inflected by lots of little twists and turns – a pastiche of styles and ... CD

Ropeadope, 2012. New Copy
Grooves from the ground up – played live, with a very spontaneous energy – in the best Snarky Puppy way! These guys have a really wonderful sound that's one of the freshest we've heard in years – a real return to the best energies of on-the-spot soul music – but not in a ... CD
