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
Also available New Constellation ... LP 31.99

✨✧ Quantic & Alice RussellLook Around The Corner ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing stuff – maybe the deepest album we've heard so far from Quantic, and a great step forward for Alice Russell too! After years of working in some of the best contemporary funk modes around, Quantic really expands his vision here – hitting a level of maturity that brings in richer arrangements with bits of strings and other righteous touches – all in a vibe that feels just like the Cadet studios at the end of the 60s! The approach is great – because at the bottom, Quantic's still got all his sharp funky edges intact – mixed in with these swirling soulful arrangements that Charles Stepney would have been proud of – all coming together in a mode that unlocks this whole new side in Alice Russell too – a vibe that's almost Stevie Wonder-ish at times, which really fits perfectly with the grooves. Sublime sounds throughout – a true instant classic – with titles that include "Magdalena", "Here Again", "Travelling Song", "I'll Keep A Light In My Window", "Look Around The Corner", "Su Suzy", "Boogaloo 33", "Road To Islay", and "Similau".

✨✧ QuanticMishaps Happening ... CD
Ubiquity, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Massive work by Quantic – his third album, and easily the best one so far! There's a sophistication to the grooves here that we never would have expected in the earlier recordings – a keen love of a globe's worth of influence – summed up in the deeply changing mood of the set, as the music runs from breezy bossa to heavy Afro rhythms, sweet soul jazz, and classic 70s deep funk! The gimmicks are gone, the strings are cut, and the only thing supporting Quantic at this point is his own genius for the groove. Great throughout, and with surprising guest work by funk legend Spanky Wilson, Afro funk singer Sonny Akpan, and fellow Tru Thoughts labelmate Alice Russell – on tracks that include "Mishaps Happening", "Use What You Got", "Angels & Albatrosses", "Prelude To Happening", "Perception", "So Long", "Furthest Moment", and "Trees & Seas".

VariousSoul Shaker Vol 4 – More Deep Funk, Soul & Groovy Club Sounds From Today's Scene ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2007. Used ... $9.99
Funky soul galore – all of it current, and all of it plenty darn great as well! Back when the first volume of this series was released, the idea of contemporary funk was a bit of a novelty – but now, the deep funk underground is really getting some key exposure on a global level – and a collection like this is a good reminder of why it's so great in the first place! Artists span the best from both the US and European scenes – and although recorded recently, all the tracks here have a hard, gritty feel that's every bit as wonderful as the best funky 45s you might find from the 60s and 70s. CD features 16 titles that include "Too Much" by Sweet Vandals, "Bubbles (part 1)" by Boogoos, "Coming From A Higher Plane" by Baby Charles, "Mellomatic Mood" by Binky Griptite & The Mellomatics, "Good Foot Down" by Soul Snatchers, "Budget Fro" by Diplomats Of Solid Sound, "Are You Ready To The Party" by Mr Comicstore with Nicole Willis, "So Good Today (Dap Kings rmx)" by Ben Westbeech, "Don't Take It Too Hard" by Tuomo, and "Sound Of Everything (Senor Lobo & Watch TV rmx)" by Quantic with Alice Russell.
