Quantic Presents The Western TransientNew Constellation ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A tremendous new project from Quantic – a set that has him moving into spiritual jazz territory, with all the depth and care he brought to previous funk and Latin projects! The music here is a mix of electric and acoustic modes – played by Will Holland on guitar with a group that also includes tenor, flute, trumpet, keyboards, moog, and some mighty nice percussion – all used in these warmly flowing ways that are totally wonderful – like some lost, underground 70s set on a tiny label by a local combo – performed with an understated brilliance that really holds us rapt! For a guy who could come on strong at times, Quantic seems to do even more by laying back a bit – and really letting the group energy flow on songs that include "Jumble Sale", "New Constellation", "Bicycle Ride", "The Orchard", "Mirzan", and "Latitude". CD features bonus track – "Latitude (to the point version)". CD

Hot 8 Brass BandRock With The Hot 8 ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2007. Used ... $7.99
A brass band, but one with a funky difference – a hard and heavy sound that will make you forget any cliches you might have about the genre from the past! The Hot 8 are certainly a combo who live up to their placement on the Tru Thoughts label – and as Nostalgia 77, Quantic, and other labelmates have updated older sounds strongly – these guys take the classic New Orleans groove and push it firmly into the present with a sharp-edged approach! There's a bit of drum and percussion at the bottom of the rhythms, but the horns also help the groove too – and although some solo, most of the rest are jamming with the percussion – stretching out beautifully while the vocals are called, sung, and shouted over the top. Titles include the group's great cover of "Sexual Healing", plus "What's My Name", "It's Real", "Fly Away", "E Flat Blues", "Get Up", "Love Don't Live Here", and "I Got You". CD

✨✧ Whitefield BrothersEarthology ... LP
Now Again, 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The long-awaited return of the Whitefield Brothers – melding global funk and tripped out psychedelia as masterfully as on their massive In The Raw album – and tripping it out and funking it up even more this time! The psychedelic sounds get more pronounced play this time out, but it's still well within the funk realm – gritty drums and percussion under fuzzed out rhythms, keys that range from a jazzy funk groove to thick layers of fuzz and bubbling atmospherics, exotic string accents, heady bass grooves and more. Their reach is global, too, with influences from the east and the west – and a heck of an impressive guest roster – with leftfield MCs on a couple gems – Edan & Mr Lif on "The Gift" and Percee P & MED on "Reverse" – plus Bajka, Brooklyn funk revival masters the El Michels Affair, and fellow psych funk traveller Quantic. Titles include "Joyful Exaltation", "Safari Strut", "Taisho", "Sad Nile", "Ntu", "Pamukkale", "Alin", "Breakin Through" feat El Michels Affair, "Sem Yelesh", "Lullaby For Lagos" feat Quantic, "Chich" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
