Mad grooves from a group who's unlike anyone else we can think of – and who just get more and more compelling with each new release! This time around, Soil & Pimp still have lots of the fast-jamming jazz of their roots, but they're also expanding their rhythmic palette nicely – bringing in some earthy percussion at points, stepping forward in a flurry of horns at others, and even hitting a surprising soul vibe at some especially nice moments! If you've dug these guys before, you'll find plenty to love on this set – and you'll be very pleasantly surprised at how they've stretched out their core acoustic groove to reach for some new frontiers on the club jazz scene. Titles include "Moon At Noon", "Asa", "Tell Me A Bet Time Story", "Awesome Knowledge", "Sexual Hungry", "Movin", "Do Re Mi", and "Freedom Time". (Initial CD pressing features a bonus track – "Summer Goddess"!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

High Contrast (Japan), 2013. New Copy
Excellent sounds from this hip Japanese group – a jazzy combo with some mighty strong vibes in the lead – and a range of sweet styles that run from bossa to bop to soul jazz! The instrumentation is all played live, never programmed – and the group have a groove that easily ... CD

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

Flying Buddha, 2013. New Copy

Whole Other
Fine Line (UK), 2014. New Copy
Sublime spacey sounds from drummer Richard Spaven – a contemporary musician, but one who's got the same sort of an ear for a laidback groove that we love in electric jazz from the 70s! Most tracks here feature prominent Fender Rhodes or guitar – stepping out in this style that's slowly ... CD

Let This Melody Ring On
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy
Soaring soul from Carlos Garnett – one of the reedman's key 70s sides for the Muse Records label – work we'd rank right up there with the spiritual best of Gary Bartz or Norman Connors at the time! Like both of those contemporaries, Garnett's really reaching for something new in the ... CD
