QuasimodeMagic Ensemble (CD & DVD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2011. Used ... $19.99
Quasimode soar nicely on this great little set for Blue Note Japan – a record that draws on their many years in the club jazz scene, and finds a way to give their music even more focus than before! All the piano-driven grooves we've always loved are firmly in place – hard-rolling modal lines that step out boldly over acoustic bass and percussion – but this time around, the horns are even more prominent than before – some tight trumpet and tenor that both sound mighty nice, given some occasional string sweetening on a few cuts, but never in ways that dampen the highly rhythmic energy of the combo! Titles include album versions of "Whisky's High" and "Flyin To The Dark" – plus "Seven Colors", "Cosmic Eyes", "Lush Life", "Music Can Change The World", "Nahogoi Jumping", and "Ant Soldier". Also features a bonus DVD – with a music video for "Whisky's High", and 3 more live performance tracks! CD

Kazuhiro SunagaMirror ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2015. Used ... $19.99
A debut solo set from Kazuhiro Sunaga – an artist you might know better as the bassist in Japan's mighty Quasimode – but one who really stretches into new styles here on his own! The music still has that core sense of groove we love from Quasimode, but the performance is in a range of different instrumentation than the straight jazz styles of that combo – a blend of keyboards lines handled by the leader alongside his bass – including organ, Wurlitzer, mellotron, and acoustic piano – often mixed with this spare sort of instrumentation that's nicely playful, and which has a sound that's somewhere in the territory of post-jazz groups from the UK, and some of the more soulful experiments on Blue Note in the wake of Robert Glasper. A few tracks have vocals – sung by guests who include Maya Hatch and Sugar Me, and by Sunaga himself – and titles include "The Butterfly", "Spicy", "Coexistence", "Spring Wind", "Suzanne", "After The Storm", and "Help Me".

Peven EverettScapes In Modern Blue EP ... CD
Studio Confessions, 2004. Used ... $12.99
A very unique project from underground soul maestro Peven Everett – a selection of shorter tracks that work almost as songpoems – written by Peven and Chris Ellis, and spoken over backings that have the mellow groove of Peven's other recordings. There's a great late night style that's almost Peven's take on Barry White – with a sensual, personal approach that's striking in comparison to even Peven's own other work, and which more than makes up for the shortness of the set. Titles include "Beautiful Queen", "Dark Day's Light", "Living In The Now", "Warrior Drum", "Life Eternal", and "What Is It?". (Neo Soul, New Grooves) CD
(Out of print. Note that each of these is handmade by Peven – so that the items will have a self-produced, homemade look to them that differs from CD to CD – although the music is great, and that production makes these one of a kind items!)

Peven EverettSwing Dirty Dirty ... CD
Studio Confessions, 2004. Used ... $9.99
The always-amazing Peven Everett takes things to a whole new level – with a set of tracks that have a different groove than some of his other recent work! There's a really great jazzy feel to the set – with lots of tracks that skip along at a nice little clip, but without as much of the house approach as before – instead building on spare percussion riffs and some mighty mighty keyboard work! The album's awash in instrumental moments, showing Peven to be ever as up on his jazz chops as when he was first making his name with Betty Carter and Curtis Lundy! But of course, there's still plenty of sensually soulful moments here to appeal to fans of any of Peven's other work – and as always, we consider it an honor to be stocking work as great and unique as this! Titles include "Lover's Cafe", "Parlor Pete", "To Care Too Much", "Smoke At Midnight", "Magical Mystical Day", "Pearls", "Double Feature", and "Blue Carmel". Also, note that this is a full album of tracks – not the earlier EP that Peven released with the same title! (Neo Soul, New Grooves) CD
