JazztronikKeystone ... CD
Warner (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $31.99
Beautiful sounds from Jazztronik – a set that reminds us why we first fell in love with his music so many years ago! The album mixes wonderful keyboard lines and warmly soulful vocals – the former from the man himself, Ryo Nozaki – the latter from guests who include Valerie Etienne, Eliana, Love, Kaori Takeda, and Sumire – singers whose presence is interspersed with instrumental tracks that further the lyrical vision of Nozaki's music! Nozaki's really upped his vision here – and not only works in strings on some of the more soaring numbers, but also creates these gentler, poetic passages at mellower moments – all blended together at a level that makes this the most sophisticated Jazztronik set we've ever heard. Titles include "Now", "DGA", "Lost Melody", "Parade", "Warp", "The City Beyond", "Peach Boy", and "A New Phase Of Life". CD

Diggs DukeUpper Hand & Other Great Illusions (with bonus download) ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $19.99
Sublime soulful sounds from Diggs Duke – one of the freshest artists we've heard in years – and one of the few who really live up to the cosmic promise of the Brownswood label! Duke's got this way of singing, speaking, and playing Fender Rhodes with a really righteous sort of vibe – almost a modern day Weldon Irvine, but with an ear for heavier beats as well – and able to do more in this short EP than most artists can do in a full album! Titles include "The Pinnacle", "Secrets Seem Rehearsed", "Covered In Cloth", "Our Love Was Brand New", and "A Private Island". Why isn't this guy huge? LP, Vinyl record album

JazztronikRepro ... CD
Pony Canyon (Japan), 2008. Used ... $6.99
A hip little set of grooves from Jazztronik – only a 6 track EP overall, but one that's got all the depth and punch of a full album! The tracks here all represent Jazztronik at their clubby best – upbeat, soulful, and coming across with lots of sophisticated tones and colors – much deeper shadings than you'd find in other acts of this nature, which is why we've always loved their music so much! There's plenty of jazz and Brazilian influences mixed in with the beats – which are themselves informed by a good deal of classic club – and titles include "Sweet Rain", "I Like It", "Rising In My Heart (new version)", "Miyagino (main theme alt version)", and "Meguru (main theme Iyuku Cho mix) – plus a bonus track that's a great remake of Marlena Shaw's "Street Walkin Woman", with vocals by Robert Gallagher and Valerie Etienne.

Goran Kajfes Subtropic ArkestraReason Why Vol 2 ... CD
Headspin (Sweden), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
A stunner of a record from trumpeter Goran Kajfes – an artist we've loved for years, but who really blows us away even more with this set! The first album with his Subtropic Arkestra was a real revelation – a bold step into funkier, more globally-conscious territory – but this second effort is even more powerful and righteous, and this amazing album that ties together so many different strands of music! Kajfes' vision is broad enough to encompass roots from Africa, the Middle East, and even some of the 70s cross-cultural experiments on the European scene – as well as the collaborative efforts of larger ensembles like the Sun Ra Arkestra or Fela's Afrika 70s – both of whom would be a good comparison tot he lively energy of this great group. Players include Jonas Kullhammar and Per Rusktrask Johansson on reeds, Jesper Nordenstrom on organ and keyboards, and a number of other key underground players on the Scandinavian scene – and the record features versions of work by Milton Nascimento, Okay Temiz, Francis Bebey, and even Grizzly Bear – but all given a unique twist by the group. Tremendous stuff – with titles that include "Tamzara", "A Lua Girou", "New Track", "Dokuz Seki/Esmerim", and "Yet Again". (Jazz, New Grooves) CD

✨✧ Steve SpacekFollow Me (vocal, inst, acapella) ... 12-inch
Eglo, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
It's maybe been a bit since we last heard from Steve Spacek, but the man has lost none of his charm – and the blend of heavy beats and spacey touches remind us why we loved his sound so much in the first place! The tune's a bumping, ragged little number – slightly broken, but in the best way possible – and amazingly catchy, even with just a few key elements in the mix!
