Mindblowing work from the mighty Frank McComb – an all-instrumental set, but one that's every bit as soulful as his vocal outings! As you might guess from the title, Frank's paying tribute to some of the greats from years past – and as you'd think from the electric piano on the cover, there's a deep 70s vibe to the whole album – amazing keyboard lines that recall the glory days of Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Patrice Rushen, George Duke, and other players who've inspired these grooves – but all handled by Frank here with a lean vibe that's all his own – real soul, and really soulful too – not some kind of quirky copycat tribute, and without any attempt to throw in too many contemporary beats – just the kind of real keyboard vibes we totally love – and which hardly anyone can record this well anymore! Tracks are all originals – and titles include "Chick", "Patrice", "Cha Cha", "Duke", "If It Wasn't For Herbie & Chick", "Just Ride", and "Asia". (This is Frank McComb's own version – a self produced CDR in a slimline case, with color copy cover.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Universal (Japan), Early 2010s. New Copy

Feel Good
Columbia, 2014. New Copy
Bubbling avant soul from The Internet – aka Syd The Kid & Matt Martian – who really step up their game on Feel Good! Syd has developed strongly as a singer – with a light, breathy touch that's a warmly welcoming foil to some of the more abstract production touches. That said ... CD

Fear & Faith
Jazz Haus (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A wonderfully strong set from singer Cecile Verny – thanks to a backing combo who's as proud and bold as her vocals! Often, a singer like this never gets the sort of groove she deserves – sometimes lost amidst some fuller R&B arrangements, or under-whelmed by trippier abstract ... CD
