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

✨✧ Nick Pride & The PimptonesRejuiced Phat Shake ... CD
Legere (France), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We're not sure what we think of the title – which has a bit of a 90s ring to it – but the record's got a smoking soulful sound that definitely lives up to previous work from Nick Pride and his combo! The group's equal parts 60s soul and 70s funk – and often blend the two together nicely – so that there's a hard edge at the bottom of a tune, while a female deep soul singer stretches out over the top! Nick himself plays guitar – and singers include Jess Roberts, Beth Macari, Susan Hamilton, and Courtney Velecia. One other track features the Renegade Brass Band – and titles include "Second Hand Wife", "Non Stop", "Why Does My Man Got To Be So Tough", "Hex On My Soul", "It's A Love Thing", and "Wanna Treat You Right".

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 ... $9.99
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

Elizabeth ShepherdHeavy Falls The Night (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Do Right (Canada), 2010. Used ... $6.99
A wonderful third album from Elizabeth Shepherd – possibly her best yet – taking the stripped down, yet adventurous jazzy soul intimacy of the debut and the deeper, dreamier sound of her Parkdale album, and coming up with a lovely, unique and wholly excellent sound on Heavy Falls The Night! There are some heavier moods at play, but, the production and arrangements have a light touch, leaving plenty of space from Elizabeth's lovely voice to pull you in. Shepherd handles most of the production and all of the arrangements, with one track produced by the DJ Mitsu The Beats, his jazzy dancefloor funk groove well suited for the style! Elizabeth sings and plays keys, with Ross Macintyre and Scott Kemp on bass, Roman Tome on percussion, Colin Kingsmore on drums and percussion, with some guests and guitar on just a couple of tunes. Why Elisabeth hadn't yet become a superstar by the time of this album's release is a mystery and an injustice! Titles include "What Else", "The Taking", "Heavy Falls The Night", "Numbers", "Seven Bucks". "Pne More Day", "A Song For Dinah Washington", "High", "It's Coming", "On The Insufficiency Of Words" and "Danny's Song". CD

✨✧ VariousDJ Spinna Presents The Sound Beyond Stars – Essential Remixes ... CD
BBE (UK), 2000s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The mighty DJ Spinna has a way of making already-great music sound even greater – by using just the right sort of soulful touch to augment subtle elements in the original tunes that might have otherwise gone overlooked – to unlock a richer, more righteous energy that really serves the tunes well! And while we've loved Spinna's remix work on countless singles over the years, we're even happier to hear it all in one place like this – in a nicely overstuffed collection that has so many great Spinna touches, it could well be a Spinna album on its own – especially since the DJ always has such a warmly collaborative relationship with so many different artists. Tracks include "Days Like This (Spinna & Ticklah club)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Live In The Light (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Fertile Ground, "Moonlight (DJ Spinna Galacti Soul voc)" by Bah Samba, "Dirty Mind (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Animal House, "Dear Friend (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Loftsoul with Lisa Millet, "Crossroads (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Alison Crockett, "Closer (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Goapele, "A Better Day (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Louie Vega with Raul Midon, "Why (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Tortured Soul, "I Remember Love (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Yvett Rovira, and "Rideaway Getaway (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Agent K with Carleen Anderson.
