Nathan HainesPoet's Embrace ... CD
Haven/Warner (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $13.99
A really great change for saxophonist Nathan Haines – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given how much we already liked him before! The set's a straight jazz outing – of the kind that really lets Haines' strengths on reeds shine forth beautifully – soaring out soulfully in ways that are quite different than his more groove-oriented recordings – yet still equally soulful! Nathan's tenor is wonderful – as deep in tone and rich in feeling as some of the greats of the 60s generation – yet informed with a slight spiritual sense of phrasing as well, even though the overall production and setting is downright classic. The group's a quartet – with Kevin Field on piano, Alain Koetsier on drums, and Thomas Botting on bass – and titles include the Haines' originals "Realisation", "Universal Man", "Ancestral Dance", "The Poet's Embrace", and "Consequence" – plus a version of Roy Brooks' "Eboness".

✨✧ Various2000 Black Records Presents The Good Good ... CD
Planet E, 2000. Used ... $6.99
A great collection of modern soulful tunes – pulled together by the 2000 Black label, an imprint which takes its name from the famous Roy Ayers tune of the same name! Choosing Roy as a reference point would be a difficult thing to live up to for most other labels – but the 2000 Black posse do a damn good job of living up to Roy's legacy here, taking the positive spiritualism that infused his classic work, and using it to inform a whole new set of experiments in modern music. Roy's present on a remake of "2000 Black" done with MM Black, and the set is rounded out by 11 more like minded numbers: "Brand New Day" by Pavel Kostiuk, "Future Past" & "Space Junky" by Nubian Mindz, "Into The Now" by Seiji, "Terah" by Nu Era, "Sunnin" by Catalyst, "Groovesome" by Domu, "Nu Way" by Kuni, "Avenues" by Titonton, "Diamondstone" by Somatik and "The Mind" by Da One Way featuring Bembe Segue.

✨✧ VariousRemixed By The Stereo MC's ... CD
Universal (Germany), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
A collection of soulful club, and not so clubby mellowed out grooves – nicely stretched out, bleeped up, and torn and frayed at the edges by UK collective Stereo MCs! For nearly 2 decades the SMCs have had highly trained ears tuned to the groove-oriented aspects of club and hip hop, and it's that precise quality that the trip hop pioneers bring to this set. They reach across the groove spectrum, too – with a dubby synth washout of I Roy's "War And Friction" adding a horny, undercutting rocksteady rhythm to the Jungle Brother's "Because I Like It Like That", continuing on the stretched out hip hop tip with their workout of "Dream Warrior's "Follow Me Not" and RZA's "My Lovin' Is Digi" (extra points for breathing some life into RZA's sterile Bobby Digital persona), and an equally measured dip into the new groove area with "I Changed My Mind" by Quannum featuring Lyrics Born and Poets of Rhythm, "Freediving" by Nigo with Cornelius, "Silently Bad Minded" by Pressure Drop, "Everybody Jump Off" by Jhelisa, "My Made Paul" by David Holmes", "Makes Me Wanna Die" by Tricky, and "59 Seconds" by Exodus 77.
