Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz Ensemble (Madlib)Miles Away – The Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz & Percussion Ensemble ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
A mad mix of spaced out jazz funk from Madlib – working here in a style closer to his benchmark Yesterday's New Quintet mode of forward looking band-based grooves – but also taking it even further and into deeper realms! The Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz & Percussion Ensemble finds 'Lib & co paying homage to a universe of late 60s & 70s soul jazz and fusion funk influences, as well as some more modern practitioners – with tracks dedicated to Horace Tapscott, Phil Ranelin, Roy Ayers and others – some covers and others composed by Madlib. Madlib is a character whose ambition knows no bounds, and also one of the rare modern masters whose productivity is to be cherished – as busy as he is, we're never disappointed with the output – rather than spreading himself too thin, he brings a range of material that rolls from dust funk & hip hop grit to far out funk jazz percussion gems like this one! Madlib presides over a cast of players (be they living-breathing folks or Madlib alter egos) that lay down loads of drums & percussion, piano, Moog, Rhodes, guitars, bass, sitar, vibes and more. Titles include "Derf (For Derf Reklaw)", "One For The Monica Lingas Band", "Waltz For Woody (For Woody Shaw)", "Tones For Larry Young", "Black Renaissance (For Harry Whitkaker)", "Mystic Voyage (For Roy Ayers)", "The Trane & The Pharoah (For John Coltrane & Pharoah Sanders)" and more.

VariousFreestyle – Single Minded Compiled By Adrian Gibson ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2008. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
A double-length collection of singles from the UK's mighty Freestyle label – kind of an offshoot of the Jazz Cafe scene in London, and easily one of the hippest imprints of the past few years! Freestyle's issued plenty of great full length albums, but they've put out way more singles – both 12" and funky 45s, a good number of which are compiled here on the set! The Freestyle singles are almost even better than the label's albums – as they represent the real cutting edge of the funky underground, often the first few tracks heard from artists who are well on their way to hitting big at a much higher level. The work here is a mix of funky tracks, beat-heavy numbers, and some occasional soul and Latin bits – all served up with a lively sort of sound that steps way back to the old school, but keeps a 21st Century sort of sparkle. 22 tracks in all – including "Impulse" by Rhibosome, "That's Your Problem Baby" by Jaguar, "Get Down To The Floor" by James Taylor Quartet with Roy Ayers, "Elephants" by Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, "When Will I Ever Learn 2" by Lewis Taylor, "Aye Carumba" by Nick The Record, "Kalakuta Show" by Afrodizz, "Rapper's Delight" by Bentzon Brotherhood, "Get It On" by Sleeve, "It's Alright Now" by DJ Graham B, "Taking Your Seat" by Valique, "Live In The Mix" by Flow Dynamics, "AB Slash" by AB NRML, "So Fine" by Sleeve & Lowman, "Tom Blake (DJ Spinna mix)" by Ron Blake, and "Movin On (Secure Unit mix)" by Reggie Watts.

✨✧ Simpson UniquityRunning Away (funky vibes, Diplomats Of Soul dub) ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great remake of one of the biggest cuts ever from the legendary Roy Ayers – done here with a version that's got even more vibes than the original! In fact, the core groove is very much like the Ayers recording, but the cut soon moves into loads of jazzy vibes – and also has a great bass breakdown in the middle! The flipside takes out the initial burst vibes, but keeps all the grooves intact – and brings in some sweet jazzy keyboard work from Diplomats Of Soul, then brings back in the vibes! (Funky 45's, New Grooves) 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Quartetto ModernoEcco! ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1999. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful jazz recordings we've heard in a long time! Italy's Quartetto Moderno is a vibes-led combo with a classic modal feel – similar to Bobby Hutcherson's pre-new thing years on Blue Note, or some of the early Roy Ayers & Jack Wilson recordings from LA. The sound is extremely captivating, and the main frontline of vibes and piano is augmented on a number of tracks by flute and alto. The set's got a great cover of Paul Horn's lost modal groover "Mr. Bond", plus loads of great originals, like "Giovani D'Oggi", "Il Gioco Delle Parti", "Astro Gange", and "Moderns Dilemma". Very nice stuff, and with a sound and feel that's far more sophisticated than some of the other titles on Schema! (Jazz, New Grooves) CD
