Switched On funk from Mr Chop! Here's an homage to the innovative Moog-based LPs of the late 60s and early 70s – though the the great UK analog studio wiz Mr Chop is also doing it hard and heavy – it's not a light, airy and bubbly keyboard groove experience – this is spacey, fuzzy avant funk at its modern finest! Produced and engineered by Mr Chop and the players are like-minded geniuses – Malcolm Catto on drums, Coz Litter on bass, guitar, vocoder and more, Glyn Williams on clavinet, Moog, Hammond and Rhodes, Johnny Pop on Hammond organ and Mark Brunley on modular synth. The set includes some covers of funk and avant rock like you've never heard them before, and it's great all the way. Titles include "Hung-Up", "Root Down (And Get It)", "Breakthrough", "Givin Up Food For Funk", "Blow Your Head", "Deep Gully", "Greedy G", "Happy Birthday", "Vitamin C" and "Cortex".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD

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

Play It Again
Keep On Boppin (Netherlands), 2008. New Copy
Funky grooves from Basque country – an unlikely location, but one that turns up some surprisingly great work from this sharp-edged little combo! The Cherry Boppers have a name that might be a little hokey, but they hooked us in right from the start with their tight version of classic funk ... CD

Budos Band III
Daptone, 2010. New Copy

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

Pool
Yellow Bird (Germany), 2012. New Copy
CD...$9.99 15.99
A group who's as playful and offbeat as their image on the cover – kind of an unusual hybrid of modes that seems to hearken back to the more creative groups of the German post-punk years, particularly some of the artists on the AtaTak label! The sound here is heavy on keyboards and ... CD

ManMade
Hard Boiled, 2013. New Copy
We've been digging Zo for many years, and knew he was a superstar right from the start – but this time around, he blows us away even more than ever! The album's got a special spark that goes beyond even all the great music Zo's given us before – and even past his work with Foreign ... CD

Live In NYC (CD & DVD)
ObliqSound, 2013. New Copy CD & DVD
Exactly the kind of set that shows why Gretchen Parlatto is one of the most exciting jazz vocalists in recent years – and a live date that really lets you get to hear Parlatto's vocals away from any additional studio augmentation – an approach that has us blown away even more than ... CD
