Tim Hagans & Bob BeldenRe-animation Live ... CD
Blue Note, 2000. Used ... $0.49
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

St GermainTourist ... CD
Blue Note, 2000. Used ... $1.99
Killer jazzy grooves from the bourgeoning French jazz house scene! St Germain take a Blue Note 70s sound as their base – with lots of sweet Hammond riffs, mellow Fender Rhodes licks, funky flute lines, and spacey percussion – then they add in some tight soulful house rhythms, with a very deep deep deep groove! The result is some of the best jazzy house that we've heard in years – and the record is the kind of album designed to put Blue Note back on the map as one of the most groove-committed jazz majors in the world. Killer stuff all around – and with the tracks "So Flute", "Latin Note", "Rose Rouge", "Pont Des Arts", "Sure Thing", and "What Do You Think About . . ." CD

Han Litz GroupEpiphany Electrified ... CD
Unconditional Sound (Netherlands), 2014. Used ... $4.99
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".
