✨✧ SouliveNext ... CD
Blue Note, 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
This funky combo kicks it hard on their second Blue Note album – expanding the group a bit more to include an alto player, which makes for a nice choppy jazz funk sound! The record's got a few appearances by famous guests – including Amel Larrieux, Black Thought, Talib Kweli & Hi Tek, and Dave Matthews – who were probably included by Blue Note to hype the set to a more mainstream audience. The real talent, though, comes from the group – as Soulive sound tighter than ever here, grooving with a choppy intensity that hardly needs extra help – and which grooves through most of the record as the real core of the excitement! Titles include "Tuesday Night's Stand", "Fluries", "Liquid", "Joyful Girl", "Whatever It Is", "Alkime", "ED Hambone", "Bridge To Bama", "I Don't Know", and "Clap!". CD
(Out of print.)

✨✧ DeRobert & The Half-TruthsI'm Tryin' ... CD
GED Soul, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
