✨✧ Roy Davis JrChicago Forever ... LP
Ubiquity, 2004. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
An instant classic from Roy Davis Jr – and a record that really takes us back to the deepest days of the Chicago house scene! Roy's tunes are simple, effective, and straightforward – yet also have a cosmic burning soul that moves them past the coldness that could sometimes hold back work from Chicago. The beats are tight, but never overbearing; the keyboards are spacey, but never too noodly; and Roy's got some great vocal help on a few cuts from singers that include Terry Dexter, Khalid, and Ayro! As a side note, the album was actually recorded a year or two before release, but delayed due to personal issues in Roy's life – which further enforces the "lost classic" feel of the set, and makes us even happier to finally have it out. Titles include "My Soul Is Electric", "If You Wanna", "Strings & Things", "Wonderland", "Nu Roots", "Heavenly Father", and "U Give U Take". (Neo Soul, New Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album

Yusuke Hirado (Quasimode)Speak ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $19.99
A really beautiful album from Yusuke Hirado – a musician you might know as the pianist in the combo Quasimode, but who steps out here in a whole new range of styles! Hirado plays mostly acoustic piano throughout – and some of the tracks have a straighter jazz vibe that shows off a warmer, more lyrical side of his music than might emerge in the more groove-centric Quasimode – but other tracks also add in some funky elements, too – but in ways that really expand past the core club jazz sound of the other group! Hirado plays a bit of Fender Rhodes on the record, but his piano is maybe the real revelation – especially in the modally-grooving trio numbers, which are especially nice – and the set also features a bit of guest work – including vocals from both Bird and Miyuki Hatekeyama, alto from Motoharu of Soil & Pimp, and backings from the Cradle Orchestra on one track. Titles include an excellent remake of Roy Ayers' "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", plus "Taxi Driver Theme", "I'm In Love", "Against The Invisible Wall", "Love Is A Losing Game", "Down To The South", and "A House Is Not A Home".

Masters At Work & OthersHouse Masters – Masters At Work Vol 2 (4CD set) ... CD
Defected (UK), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 4CD ... $23.99 25.98
The title definitely gets it right – as the team of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega are certainly masters of house – as you'll hear in this overstuffed 4CD set! The package brings together 40 tracks that really span the gamut of the duo's genius – from their important early house records, their crucial remixes of tracks for others, and their groundbreaking work during their second chapter – when the Masters At Work name helped bridge a space between older funk and soul, and the freshest sounds of the 21st Century! There's a huge amount here to love – and titles include "I Like (MAW main mix)" by Shanice, "Our Time Is Coming" by MAW with Roy Ayers, "Buddy X (Masters At Work dub 1)" by Nenah Cherry, "Always There (MAW main mix)" by Incognito with Jocelyn Brown, "I Feel Love (Masters At Work 86th Street mix)" by Donna Summer, "When You Touch Me (MAW re-edit)" by Taana Gardner, "You Can Do It (Nuyorican style mix)" by Nuyorican Soul with George Benson, "Star Chasers (Nu Yorican dub)" by 4Hero, "Let It Go (Ken Lou mix)" by Black Magic, "Ten Percent (Ken Lou mix)" by Double Exposure, "See Line Woman (MAW rmx)" by Nina Simone, "Truth Don Die (Masters At Work house version main)" by Femi Kuti, and lots lots more!

✨✧ MatoHollywood Dub ... CD
Stix (France), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from Mato – one that really moves past some of the dubby hip hop styles of his previous albums, by taking on a whole host of classic film scores from the 70s! The music builds beautifully from songs you'd know from action films, blacksploitation thrillers, and westerns – music originally penned by folks like Lalo Schifrin, Nino Rota, Roy Ayers, Marvin Gaye, Dave Grusin, and others – reworked as instrumentals with a Jamaican dub vibe, but a crisp contemporary twist overall! Titles include "Shaft Dub", "Coffy Is The Color Dub", "T Stands For Trouble Dub", "Enter The Dragon Dub", "Imperial March Dub", "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind Dub", "Psycho Dub", and "Condor Dub".

Quartetto ModernoEcco! ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1999. New Copy ... $14.99
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

VariousParadisiac 3 – A Deep Smooth Sensual & Unique Selection Of Exceptional Music ... CD
Universal (France), 2001. Used 2CDs ... $12.99
The 3rd volume in this great series – and a set that delivers everything the title implies! The album's a mix of mellow funky, jazzy clubby, and laidback housey grooves – mostly all of modern origin, but with a hip sound that's sure to appeal to fans of our New Grooves section. This one may well be the best of the series – as the track list keeps on stretching from previous volumes, to encompass an even greater range of grooves. Titles include "She Was Too Good To Me" by Till Bronner, "Kool Down" by 10th & Parker with Mark Murphy, "Strollin On Sunday" by Cerrone, "For Real" by Roy Ayers, "Gaze" by Sweetback, "Tornado" by Racoon, "The Flute Plays On" by Monsieur Charles, "Cloud Patterns" by Ian Pooley, "For My Lady" by Dus, "Elevator" by Jaffa, "Indian Woman" by J Hash Project, "Hammor Island" by Kinobe, "Shrine Blues" by Claude Monet, and "Close To You" by Jose Padilla. 26 tracks on 2CDs!
