The first we've heard from St, Louis singer Brian Owens – and it's one of the better neo-classic soul records we've stocked in a little while! Brian has and old school reverent approach, but does his thing with fresh, unique perspective. He's a solid singer and songwriter – with a style that'll appeal to anyone with a love for classic soul. Brian's also a veteran, having served in Afghanastan and elsewhere in the Middle East – managing to sing of those experiences in a way that transcends politics and ideology – and doing so in universally soulful way. Impressive stuff! Includes "Soul Anthem (Bring It Back)", "Keep Movin On", "I Just Want To Feel Alright", "Open (Lovely Day)", "Beautiful Love", "Let's Get Out", "Oh I", "Troubled Man", "The Answer (PS: If You Wanna Feel Alright)" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

In The Flow
Trippin' N' Rhythm, 2013. New Copy
One of the most dynamic albums we've ever heard from flutist Althea Rene – a set that's still got all her sweet soulful solo work firmly in place, but one that also adds in a bit more groove at the bottom too! The album's done in close collaboration with Michael Broening – who plays ... CD

Hard Water
Jonathan Sigel, 2014. New Copy
Sweet soulful trumpet from Jonathan Sigel – an artist who's got a really great ear for the best fusion styles of the 70s – particularly work by some of the more R&B inflected trumpet players of the time! The grooves are awash in warm keyboard lines, and sometimes feature either a ... CD

Ropeadope, 2014. New Copy CD & DVD
A brilliant set of live Snarky Puppy, in all their tightly grooving, though boundlessly creative jazzy soul glory – and it's as great as anything we've heard or seen from them to date! The "Here" of We Like It Here is Utrecht, Netherlands – where they recorded it live (with ... CD

Universal (Japan), Early 2010s. New Copy
A contemporary take on the Free Soul genre – initially a way of digging back into vintage soul from the 70s, in order to find a whole new groove – but also a surprisingly great way of digging 21st century work as well! The collection brings together tracks from both the underground and ... CD

EMI, 2000. New Copy
The first-ever full length presentation of a legendary live set from D'Angelo – recorded early in his career, and working through a host of classic tunes that really add in a nice layer to his own great music! D'Angelo's caught here in the legendary temple of groove – London's Jazz ... CD

Journey Of A Woman
Rajdulari Music, 2014. New Copy
A really great debut from Rajdulari – a singer with a hell of a strong voice, and a great ability to mix her lyrics with funky instrumental elements – maybe the best artist to do so since the debut of Jill Scott! The record's got a really special sort of punch – a quality that's ... CD

PM/Shout (Japan), 1976. New Copy
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great ... CD

Bamboo/Shout (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Tripped out funky soul from the great Edwin Birdsong – a rare indie album released between his years at Polydor and Philly International! The set's got a wilder sound than any of his other work – kind of a righteous funk set for the dancefloor – recorded with lots of weird ... CD

Reaching For The World
ABC/PTG (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy
A really great post-Philly International album from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – the group's first after the departure of Teddy Pendergrass, and a set that shows them hardly missing a beat! The group are still recording at Sigma Sound, with Melvin at the production helm – and ... CD
