✨✧ JazztronikKeystone ... CD
Warner (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Goran Kajfes Subtropic ArkestraReason Why Vol 2 ... LP
Headspin (Sweden), 2015. Sealed ... $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) LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone & OthersEnnio Morricone Remixes Vol 1 ... CD
Compost (Germany), 2003. Used ... $6.99
A soundtrack for the 21st Century – original film tunes written and scored by il maestro Morricone, re-mixed and re-done by the Compost Records collective! Compost isn't normally as into the soundtrack bag as some of their other contemporaries on the European scene – which is why this project is even fresher than other remix projects of its type. Most of the artists here focus on the core elements of the tunes – going for the one time change, tonal passage, or light melody that makes the tune – then extrapolating that into a whole new work of their own design. Morricone's never sounded so contemporary, and the package is filled with new grooves that really change up the pace. Titles include "Ninna Nanna In Blu" by Raw Deal, "Amore Come Dolore" by Needs, "La Cugina" by Amalgamation Of Soundz, "Rivoluzione (con-fusion mix)" by Butti 49, "La Moda" by International Pony, "Il Buono Il Brutto Il Cattivo" by Swell Session, "Beat No 3" by Leroy Hanghofer, and "Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene" by Alex Attias.

Prefuse 73One Word Extinguisher ... CD
Warp, 2003. Used ... $2.99
The second release by Scott Herren as Prefuse 73 comes on a little more cut up with more spastic jigginess than his debut, although it still retains the massive bass grooves underneath it all to keep your head constantly swaying. Tiny processed digital noisy samples easily intermingle with classic 70s soul jazz electric piano grooves to produce an instantly wonderful dysfunctional catchy driving sound. These songs move with nice changes and stutters you won't expect that keep it unmistakably fresh. There are guest spots from Mr Lif, Jenny Vasquez, Diverse of Chicago Chocolate Industries fame as well as Dabrye and Daedelus from Herren's own Eastern Developments label. Tracks include "The End Of Biters", "Plastic", "Huevos With Jeff And Rani", "Female Demands", "Why I Love You", "Storm Returns", "Perverted Undertone", "90% Of My Mind Is With You", and more. 21 tracks in all including intros and interludes!

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! (Neo Soul, New Grooves) 12-inch, Vinyl record
