✨✧ Build An ArkPeace With Every Step ... CD
Plug Research, 2004. Used ... $8.99
One of the most righteous albums of the 21st century so far – and an instant classic we'll be loving for years! Build An Ark are a seriously heavy soul jazz ensemble, with roots and traditions that stretch back to the most righteous days of the 70s underground – the brainchild of producer Carlos Nino and vocalist Dwight Trible – and featuring work by soul jazz stalwarts that include Phil Ranelin, Nate Morgan, Derf Reklaw, Adam Rudolph, and others – all coming together in a fresh, new expression of the righteous ideals that first motivated their original work! Under the guidance of Nino, the group really gels together nicely – working in a loose mode that's a nice change from the tighter cosmic 21st century soul of the European scene – and returning to the organic, almost folksy forms that first emerged on 70s independent labels like Tribe, Strata East, and Nimbus. LA luminary Nate Morgan plays some great Fender Rhodes on many of the album's best tracks – and singer Dwight Trible has a soulful range that's somewhere between the style of Terry Callier and Leon Thomas. The album features a massively beautiful remake of Pharoah Sanders "You've Got To Have Freedom" – one that's very different than the original – plus a host of other great cuts that include Stanley Cowell's "Equipoise", Phil Ranelin's "Vibes From The Tribe", Ronnie Laws' "Always There", and Michael White's "Guidance" – as well as the original tracks "Peace & Love", "Conversations", "Precious Priceless", and "Love Is Our Nationality".

CherrystonesRed Nails ... CD
Brutal (UK), 2013. Used ... $0.99
Some of the noisiest music we've heard so far from Cherrystones – a sweet set that's heavy on fuzz and electronics, but which still holds onto the strong sense of beat from before! There's a pretty dark vibe to most of the record – a bite that goes way beyond downtempo, and which reminds us of the way that Cherrystones first shook things up years ago – opening ears to corners of sounds that weren't always treated in the same way as funk – a journey that's taken us miles to get to the place of this striking little set! Titles include "Bruised Meats", "Dirty Washing", "Molecular Battler", "Moonstone", "Red Nails", and "Robots Kin". CD

Faze ActionMoving Cities (radio edit/Cinematic Orchestra rmx, 2 Banks Of 4 Stablehand inst) (CD single) ... CD
Nuphonic (UK), 2000. Used ... $1.99
A great modern club track – filled with lots of jazzy riffing, and a warm mellow sound that recalls the best of the old days without sounding too dated. Very much on a par with the best stuff coming out on Compost – and offered up here in two excellent remixes, both of which employ the use of some larger arrangements to take the cut into a higher plane. Heavenly! CD
