✨✧ St GermainSt Germain ... LP
Nonesuch, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
It's been more than a few years since we've heard from Ludovic "St Germain" Navarre – and in that time, he's really found a way to add a lot of fresh elements to his music! Unlike the jazz-sample mode that first got St Germain his big international start, this set's got a much more rootsy vibe – with contributions from a host of African musicians, at a level we never would have expected on earlier albums – and great use of n'goni, percussion, and snakey guitar lines in the music! The global talents aren't just thrown in for spice, either – as you might have expected from Navarre's earlier sample-based sounds – and instead, participate equally in this great hybrid of cultures that's extremely creative overall. Titles include "Sittin Here", "Real Blues", "Voila", "Family Tree", "Mary L", "Forget Me Not", and "How Dare You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBlue Note Revisited ... LP
Blue Note, 2004. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A dream come true! Someone at Blue Note is keeping their eyes and ears on the street and in the clubs – because here's another late model conceptual triumph – a remix project pairing current innovators in the club and hip hop underground with classic numbers from the label's vaults! The concept is simple; classic numbers are given to handpicked remixers, re-doers, and stylistic misfits best suited to re-work that particular number. Mo Wax maestros La Funk Mob open the set with a mellow, club soul tweak of Wayne Shorter's "Oriental Funk Song". Kenny Dope trips out Bobby Hutcherson's "La Malanga" into a bubbly club funk jam. "Kyoto Jazz Massive" completely re-work Eddie Henderson's "Kudu" into a wonderful number all their own. Perhaps the biggest triumph of all here is the consistency throughout; every artist attached brings their A-game (how could they do any less, given a chance to add their own elements to the some of the most influential numbers they could get their hands on?) Amazing, amazing stuff – whether it's the scratched up, hip hop flavor J Dilla brings to Jack McDuff's "Oblighetto" or the righteous electronic groove Jazzanova drops on Eddie Gale's "Song Of The Will", the minimalist, keys and beats drive Osunlade brings into Grant Green's "A Time To Remember". Every track sparkles! Other tracks include DJ Spinna/Donald Byrd "Lansanna's Priestess", 4 Hero/Horace Silver "Won't You Open Up Your Senses", DJ Cam & Erik Truffaz/Donald Byrd "The Emperor", Herbert/Michel Petrucciani "Caravan" and more!
