Tim Hagans & Bob BeldenRe-animation Live ... CD
Blue Note, 2000. Used ... $0.99
Recorded live at the Montreal Jazz Festival, and a special set featuring the acoustic talents of trumpeter Tim Hagan and soprano saxist Bob Belden, mixed with electronics by Scott Kinsey, and turtablism by DJ Kingsize. Most of the material is fairly out – with off-kilter solos draped over loud junglist rhythms – and the album reminds us more of Derek Bailey's drum n bass album of a few years back, than it does some of the more recent new funky work on Blue Note. Titles include "Big Moment", "Dans La Ville Sombre", "Love's Lullaby", "Are You Threatening Me?", and "Trumpet Sandwich". CD

✨✧ US3Broadway & 52nd ... CD
Blue Note, 1997. Used ... $1.99
Not a bad record overall, despite a slightly painful attempt from Bruce Lundvall (in the liner notes) to claim that US 3 are Blue Note's link between the past and the future – a fact that everyone certainly knew by then, as the group scored more cash for Blue Note in a short time than most other artists did in a lifetime! Apart from the odd rap, which as always, gets in the way, there's some nice enough moments on here – especially when Ed Jones gets to play a bit of sax. Titles include "Hymn For Her", "Soul Brother", "Time & Space", "Doin A Crime", "Nowadays", "Grand Groove", "True To The Game", "Come On Everybody (Get Down", "Caught Up In A Struggle", and "Soul Brother".

Han Litz GroupEpiphany Electrified ... CD
Unconditional Sound (Netherlands), 2014. Used ... $6.99
Funky flute, in a sweet dancefloor mode – as the work of Han Litz is remixed here by a variety of European producers! Litz has a groove that's already great on its own – a style that hearkens back to 60s and 70s jazz flute players, especially the funkier currents of the latter – which makes his music a great fit for the more percolated rhythms going on here, which re-fit Han's style in a mode that's similar to Blue Note remix projects. Titles include "Bairro Alto (Dub Creator rmx)", "A Samuri's Way (Monolitz rmx)", "Flute Funk (D-Reflection rmx)", "Epiphany (Nelson & Djosa rmx)", "Purity (Monte LaRue's midnight mix)", and "When The Funk Hits The Flute".
