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".

✨✧ SoelMemento ... CD
Warner, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wickedly funky work from Soel – a new project from Ludovic Navarre, aka St Germain! The record picks up where St Germain left off – still working heavily in a Parisian blend of funky samples and classic jazz riffs, but overall taking things a lot deeper – going for a sound that's a bit less commercial, and more appealing to our ears. There's some strong real instrumentation on the set – lots of jazzy keyboards, sax, flute, and trumpet – and the album's got a great approach that blends 70s Africa with 70s African-America – coming up with loads of wonderfully warm and jazzy grooves in the process! Titles include "To This World", "My Singing Soul", "Le Vicomte", "Shining Pains", "We Have Died Already", "Black Women", and "The Earth Mother". CD
