Sean KhanMuriel ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
An insanely wonderful set from Sean Khan – maybe the greatest music he's done since his early classics with the SK Radicals! This album really takes us back to a time when music from London was completely fresh and exciting, and cosmically soulful, too – and Sean's got help from some great singers on the record who also date from that era – including the mighty Omar, plus Sabrina Malheiros, and vocalist Heidi Vogel of Cinematic Orchestra! All three of these artists really flesh out the sound of the record – and make it every bit as much of a soul record as a set that's awash in all the great reed touches and jazzy bits we'd expect from Sean. Andy Noble's also on the record, playing some wonderfully warm piano lines – and the overall instrumentation has more acoustic elements than before, which makes for a very righteous vibe throughout! Titles include "Dance For Little Emily", "Muriel", "Samba Para Florence", "Sister Soul", "What Has Jazz Become", "Trane's Shadow", "Don't Let The Sun Go Down", and "Fire Within" – plus bonus remix tracks "Don't Let The Sun Go Down (4Hero rmx)", "Samba Para Florence (Henry Wu rmx)", and "Things To Say (Ben Hauke rmx)".

✨✧ Ghostface Killah & BadbadnotgoodSour Soul ... CD
Lex, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Cinematic hip hop from the steadily productive, furiously on point rhyme slinger Ghostface Killah – working here with the excellent Toronto jazz funk ensemble Badbadnotgood – and as much as we dug Ghostface's funk band backed efforts of the previous couple years, Sour Soul might be best of 'em! None of the bands that Ghostface his rhymed out front have been anything less than of the finest caliber, but the looser narrative style of Sour Soul is a refreshing change of pace – the concept album aspect has more to do with the feel than it does an attempt to tell a complete story – leaving room for Ghost to do his inimitable thing from track-to-track without the pressure of weaving an album length tale. Badbadnotgood's raw, dexterous vibe is a fine foil – with lots of raw percussion, psych soul guitars and keys. Includes "Mono", "Soour Soul", "Stark's Reality", "Tone's Rap", "Mind Playin' Tricks", "Ray Gun" feat Doom, "Nuggets Of Wisdom", "Food", "Experience", "Gunshowers" feat Elzhi, "Six Degrees" feat Danny Brown and more.
