Kid SublimeBasement Soul – Extended Hip Hop Instrumentals ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2005. Very Good ... $7.99
Hypnotic club grooves from the appropriately-branded Kid Sublime – a former member or Rednose Distrikt – working just as well on his own! Sublime brings in some pretty healthy influences from the Detroit scene, like many of the projects on the hungry Kindred Spirits label – but he's rocking straight outta Amsterdam. Kid deliver a solid set of hypnotic groovers that'll sound just as nice through headphones as it will on a crowded dance floor! 12 tracks: "Analize This", "Wings Of Love", "Represent", "The Harder I Rock", "Takin' It Back", "Dukes Chop", "Amsterdam People", "Space Jam", "The Kosmetic", "Right About Now", "Hey!" and "Jungle Fever". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSun Ra Dedication – The Myth Lives On ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2003. Used ... $8.99
The legacy of Sun Ra lives on strongly – in this surprisingly wonderful set of tribute tracks! The album features work by an assortment of future jazz underground players and producers – all current talents that have clearly been influenced by Ra, especially his most righteous 70s work – and the tunes on the set really go for the best side of the "Space Is The Place" generation, moving past some of the wilder avant work of Ra & the Arkestra, and instead focusing on the group's music that had a more cosmic and far-reaching spiritual approach. And although we were a bit suspicious at first, we have to say that the results are great – an updating of Ra for the Goya London scene, done as best as we could have hoped! Titles include "Nuclear War" by Yesterdays New Quintet, "Black" by King Britt, "Nuclear War" by Alex Attias, "Saga Of Resistance" by Theo Parrish, "Stars Are Singing Too" by Build An Ark, "Astro Black" by Offworld, "Paepulsariki" by Recloose with Jonathan Crayford, and "Love In Outer Space" by Jimi Tenor.

✨✧ Build An ArkDawn ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing album from Build An Ark – even more spiritual and far-reaching than their first – and still with a vibe that rivals some of the most righteous jazz ever issued in the 70s on labels like Impulse and Strata East! The ensemble features both older and younger players – coming together in a collective exploration of some of the hipper sides of the jazz spectrum – all in a mode that recalls early genius of Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane, and others from many years back – recorded in a style that's completely sensitive to the nuances of the music. Carlos Nino produced, and also contributed some of the tunes – and group members include Dwight Trible on vocals, Nate Morgan on piano, Adam Rudolph on kalimba, and Derf Reklaw on congas – but that's only the tip of the iceberg, given the size of the group. Titles include "Sunshine", "Healing Song", "Love Sweet Like Sugar Cane", "Dawn", "River Run", "When Ancestors Speak", "Morning Glory", "In Her Smile", and "You Yourself Are The Key To The Universe".

✨✧ Build An ArkLove – Part 1 ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A perfect title for a perfect record – especially given all the love we've felt from Build An Ark over the years! The album's a masterpiece through and through – easily the greatest statement ever from this already-amazing band – a contemporary ensemble, but one that we'd seamlessly rank right next to our righteous favorites on labels like Impulse Records, Tribe, or Strata East – with all the political power and sense of social mission those references would imply! The song titles alone will give you a great idea of the beautiful vibe behind Build An Ark – tunes like "Celebrate", "How Do We End All This Madness", "Love Is Everywhere", "World Peace Now", and "This Prayer For The Whole World" – which re-ignite the Love Supreme candle first lit by John Coltrane in the 1960s – burning brightly again in the 21st Century, and almost even more inspiring – given the youthful energy of the group. As always, mainman Carlos Nino deserves a hell of a lot of credit for getting something this great, this right – but the group is also very clearly a collective, and draws amazing energy from members who include Dwight Trible, Kamau Daaood, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Damon Aaron, Jim Lang, and others. In addition to above-mentioned titles, other tunes include "Sweet Thing", "World Music", "More Love", "In The Park", and "Play The Music". CD

✨✧ Build An ArkLove – Part 2 ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant extension of the Love set from Build An Ark – focusing on some of the more improvisational spirit that's integral to their cosmic groove! Love Part 2 is mix of intimate moments and soaring atmospherics from Carlos Nino, Miguel-Atwood Ferguson and the rest of the stellar ensemble, plus guests and fellow travelers such as vocalists Dwight Trible, Carmen Lundy, Leisei Chen and Mia Doi Todd, violinist Michael White and others. The overall vibe and instrumentation are unpredictable from one movement to the next, but there's always a hypnotic mood at play, be it spun by sparely furnished strings and percussion, earthy global jazz influences or far spacier dynamics! Titles include a lively (and live sounding) string jazz improvisational take on "What The World Needs Now Is Is Love" with passionate vocals and pared down lyrics by Leisei Chen flavored with violin, viola, cello and sitar – plus "Cosmic Tuning", "Nature", "Ginger", "Say Yes!", "Improvisation Day 1", "Improvisation Day 2", ""Improvisation Day 8", "Cadence Of The Love Messengers" and wonderfully unique take on Donny Hathaway's "Tryin Times" with vocals by Carmen Lundy and Dwight Trible.
