DeRobert & The Half-TruthsI'm Tryin' ... CD
GED Soul, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 12.99
The greatest work we've heard so far from DeRobert Adams and the Half-Truths – a record that really pushes the singer into classic soul territory! DeRobert has always had a vintage approach to his music – but this full set plumbs a depth we never would have expected at the start – an extremely rich sense of delivery that's rooted in gospel, linked together with a range of southern soul and funk modes that really belie the Tennessee roots of the group, plus contemporary touches that really get past some of the more stock modes of the deep funk underground! All tracks are originals, but they're so good you'd swear you know them from older records – and by that, we don't mean that they're copies or cliches – just the kind of work that's so good, you're surprised you're hearing it for the first time. And if the strength of the record is any indication of justice in the mainstream, you'll be hearing lots more from the group in the near future – as this sweet set sounds like the start of a great career. Titles include "My Momma Told Me", "Goin Places", "Write A Letter", "Do It Alone", "I Don't Get Mad No Mo", "The Speech", "The Dole (part 2)", and "Ooo Wee". CD

Medeski, Martin & WoodFarmer's Reserve (remastered edition) ... CD
Indirecto, 1997/2007. Used ... $5.99
The most abstract and experimental work we've ever heard from Medeski, Martin & Wood – recorded on a single date at the Hawaiian studio The Shack in February of 1997 – a hypnotic blend hand percussion, keys, bass and guitar that's a world away for MM & W's more mainstream groove jazz of the 90s! Medeski handles the loosest of tinkering key apparatus here, unplugging the Hammond and instead working with prepared and toy pianos, a synthesizer and more – with Martin doing his thing with similarly off kilter assortment of bells, rattles, woodblocks, talking drum and a kit, and Wood holding it together with acoustic bass and a guitar somewhere. A strange, groovy wonder from a group that's not so well known for out jazz! Three multi-track suites, separated into Parts 1 (tracks 1-4), 2 (tracks 5-8), 3 (tracks 9 & 10) & Epilogue (track 11).
