✨✧ Marc MacExtend The Knowledge/It's Right To Be Civil ... CD
Omniverse, 2006/2011. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A timeless hip hop soul ode to the Civil Rights struggle from Marc Mac of 4 Hero! Extend The Knowledge is a 2CD set that serves a beautiful tribute to the movement – with spoken bits pulled from a range of classic records of the 60s and 70s, all set to beats and keys by the mighty Marc Mac! The music has got a grittier feel than some of Mac's work with 4 Hero – and is a bit more in the mode of his recent Visioneers project, but somewhat more abstract overall – in the "homage" mode of his Game Of Chess album! It includes a lot of tracks, of them shortish, but very focused and filled with great juxtapositions of sound. Extend The Knowledge follows up the 2006 sibling set It's Right To Be Civil – and this limited edition 2CD package includes that excellent and previously out of print original set on the second disc. 25 tracks on Extend The Knowledge: "Silence Is No Option", "Speak Louder", "Occupied Territory", "Mr. Meredith", "My Own Government", "Tricknowlogy", "Side You On?", "The Carpool", "Attallah", "New Awareness" and more. 28 tracks on It's Right To Be Civil: include s"100 Years Later", "Liberation Drums", "By Any Means", "Unorganized Protest", "No More Pigs", "Detroit Red", "Kings Music", "Rosa Said", "Love Is True", "Coreta's Beat", "Brothers Of Peace", "A Funky Protest", "March 1968", and "Even The President Knows".

✨✧ VariousStudio Rio Presents The Brazil Connection ... CD
Sony (UK), 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very unusual set of work – original vocal tracks pulled from classic soul and jazz songs – all set to new bossa nova rhythms done especially for the project! Sony Records gave Studio Rio free access to its vaults – and the team was able to pull off original vocals, then rework them over sweet instrumentals that have a sound that's strongly bossa jazz – at a level that almost makes us think the artists had recorded these tunes originally! The approach is surprisingly seamless – no clunky bossa remix project, or dance beats at all – and the song structure is maintained, with just a change in the instrumentation. Titles include remakes of "Lovely Day" by Bill Withers, "Walk On By" by Aretha Franklin, "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free" by Nina Simone, "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck & Carmen McRae, "It's Your Thing" by The Isley Brothers, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, "Music To Watch Girls By" by Andy Williams, and "Family Affair" by Sly & The Family Stone.
