Paolo Achenza 4Branches ... CD
A.MA (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
It's been many years since we last heard from Paolo Achenza – the Italian keyboardist who was one of the first to bring the Fender Rhodes back in the early 90s – and an important early force on the Italian label Schema Records! It's been nearly 20 years since Paolo's last for Schema ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

King Underground (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
Funky drums from Simon Allen – one of the core members of New Masterounds, working here completely on his own! The album takes us back to the best drum break records of the 90s – and, like those, this one features spare instrumental drum tracks, each based around a single groove – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

B-Side PlayersAll I Want/La Vuelta ... 7-inch
Afro Baile, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99
A warm mix of funk, reggae, and a bit of hip hop – served up in a tune that comes across with a crackling sort of freshness overall! Lyrics are a mix of sung chorus and spoken verses – and the groove has a rising/falling horn passage that really underscores the meaning of the tune! ...

BaastDimensions ... LP
Initiates International/Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
A surprising new project from the same Cali underground scene that gave us some of the Heru Avenger records from years back – done in a style that's even more jazz-based and spiritual than before! All tracks are long and spiraling – with heavy bass at the bottom from Heru Avenger, plus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandPIMP/Police In Helicopter ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
A wicked set of funky steel drums – a bad-stepping number from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, and just the kind of hard funk cut we're always digging for on steel drum records! We hardly ever find gems this good though – as "Pimp" has these slow-snapping drums that make ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

BadbadnotgoodIII ... CD
Innovative Leisure, 2014. Used ... $7.99
The best work so far from this ultra-hip trio – an amazing combination of keyboards, bass, and drums – served up in styles that are rooted in funk and jazz, but go to so many other places as well! The drums crackle with a quality schooled in 70s breaks and beats, stripped down to their ... (New Grooves, Deep Funk) read more CD

Andrea BalducciSpooky/Hurt So Bad ... 7-inch
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $4.99
Two of the coolest cuts from Andrea Balducci's excellent album on Schema – a slow, slinky version of "Spooky", with sweet Fender Rhodes under the lyrics – and a super-dope funk remake of "Hurt So Bad" – with even more Rhodes, and a groove that really beats the ...

Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 1 – Movie Scenes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A platter of Madlib beats – the first in a series of instrumental hip hop from 'Lib's Beat Konducta (formerly Beat Conductor) moniker! Madlib's production work has always had a filmic groove, and this set collects and assembles the most cinematic of said beats into an (unsurprisingly) ...

Black Market BrassWar Room/Into The Thick ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99
Funky drums and some mighty nice horns – a real killer from Black Market Brass, and maybe one of their most intense tracks to date! There's almost an Afro Funk vibe here, but the style is even more freewheeling – fast grooves and horns that are incredibly deft, but also have lots of ...

Bob & Gene/InversionsIt's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know)/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
A sweet take on this tune by Bob & Gene – given a Jamaican groove on both sides, thanks to help from The Inversions! The main cut bubbles along with a bit of a rocksteady vibe next to the duo's vocals – still very much the main song at the core, but augmented with a Kingston soul ...

Bastard Jazz (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $13.99
Beautifully layered vocals, trumpet, and beats from Miles Bonny – a set that reminds us that he's still one of the freshest talents in the contemporary underground! All the tracks here were recorded in KC, but have a future soul sound that can easily rival work on either side of the Atlantic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dunham/Daptone, 2007. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Scorching raw soul from Charles Bradley – backed by the tight Menahan Street Band! "World (Is Going Up In Flames)" might be the best track yet from Bradley – an incredible groover with a heavy theme – but the apocalypse never sounded so sweet! The groove is raw and ...

Two funky classics from one of the best new combos around! "Sexy Popcorn Pot" and "Remember Who You Are" are done here both in vocal and instrumental versions – with a groove that you'll swear was lifted straight from a lost box of funky 45s, but which is played live with ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Leon BridgesComing Home ... CD
Columbia, 2015. Used ... $7.99
An album with a very classic look on the cover – and an equally classic sound to match – one that takes us back to some of the hippest, coolest work by early 60s singers like Sam Cooke or Marvin Gaye! Both artists are a good comparison here, as Leon Bridges is unabashedly in the same ... (Neo Soul, Deep Funk) read more CD

Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
One of those funky 45s you can tell will be great – just by looking at the surface of the grooves! The tune starts out all compressed and trebly at the start – with fuzzy guitar over a spare rhythm, which then gets full and funky once the cut gets going – but then takes this ...
