Quartetto ModernoEcco! ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1999. New Copy ... $11.99
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

✨✧ MenagerieThey Shall Inherit ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2013. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mindblower from Menagerie – yet another deep musical chapter in the rich career of Lance Ferguson – an artist we loved for his early club work, then dug as a funk maestro with The Bamboos, now able to hit spiritual jazz sounds with this wonderful new group! The set's got a feel that's more in the Build An Ark/Carlos Nino camp than anything else we've heard on the Tru Thoughts label – and Menagerie's a very cool ensemble with Ferguson on guitar, plus tenor, flute, trumpet, soprano sax, Fender Rhodes, and lots of percussion – and added vibes from Roy Ayers on one key track! Vocals are great – sung by Lance and female singers together, in a mode that recalls some of Ayers' more righteous moments of the 70s – and the album's a stunner all the way through – way deeper than we were expecting. Titles include "They Shall Inherit", "The Chosen", "Jamahlia", "Leroy & The Lion", "The Quietening", and "There Will Come Soft Rains". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ MatoHollywood Dub ... CD
Stix (France), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
