QuasimodeSoul Delivery Live ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2013. Used ... $14.99
A totally great live set from Quasimode – and one that really returns the combo to the core brilliance of their first few records from Japan! The setting is completely unfurled and unbridled – the main quartet soaring away in a fast flurry of piano, bass, and percussion – always with a modal groove, and handled with plenty of soul – and topped throughout with tight horns from the Brassmode quartet – whose tenor and trumpet lines are especially nice, and really help deepen the soul of the music! There's only a bit of keyboards to bring in some slight electricity – but overall, things are mostly acoustic, very jazzy, and played live – with energy that even tops the group's recent studio albums. Two tracks feature vocals – and titles include "Febre Samba", "Another Sky", "The Man From Nagpur", "All Is One", "Relight My Fire", "El Paso Twist", and "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose". CD

Han Litz GroupEpiphany Electrified ... CD
Unconditional Sound (Netherlands), 2014. Used ... $0.99
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".
