Paprika SoulPaprika Soul ... CD
Baseline/Higher Octave, 2001. Used ... $5.99
The wonderful debut of Paprika Soul – a UK group who effortlessly mix together bits of soul, jazz, club, and Brazilian influences – all with a sound that's greater than the sum of its parts! The groove here is very vibrant and lively – and shows the best London talent for taking old elements and using them to forge some beautiful new music – of a sort that's instantly timeless, and which has an undeniable depth. Titles include a great remix of "Skindo Le Le", plus "Ocean Dance", "He Loves You", "Rio Dawn", "Boss Tres Bien", "Jungle Strut", "Bad Bad Samba", and "Burn It Up". CD

Lewis TaylorLost Album (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Slow Reality/Hacktone, 2004. Used Gatefold ... $6.99
A pop masterpiece from UK soul singer Lewis Taylor – easily his tightest album to date! The set's got a magical feel that reminds us strongly of our favorites from 70s radio on both sides of the Atlantic – warmly compressed instrumentation that slides in nicely alongside the vocals, sunnily grooving in a sound that's incredibly well-crafted, yet also extremely personal. The production is light years ahead of that on Lewis' other self-released albums – at a level that rivals the best studio work from LA or London in the early 70s, and which firmly pushes Lewis out of the indie Neo Soul ghetto, into a style that's much more in the vein of classic AOR pop. The whole thing's a real departure from Lewis' other work – which may turn off a few folks, but which has us appreciating his talents more than ever! Titles include "Send Me An Angel", "Listen Here", "Lost", "New Morning", "Yeah", "Please Help Me If You Can", "One More Mystery", and "Say I Love You". This US version comes in a cool 5" gatefold cover that's way better than the UK version – and it also features 3 bonus acoustic tracks that include "Lucky", "Track", and "Song". CD

✨✧ Brand New HeaviesForward (3CD edition) ... CD
Ear Music (Germany), 2013. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brand New Heavies back in action – and sounding every bit as great as always! The group still has that sublime mix of soul, jazz, and funk that's made them so great right from the start – a mode that's steeped in classic influences from the 60s and 70s, yet finds a way to come out sounding really fresh and unique on every track! Instrumentation is razor-sharp, and mostly live – and vocals are by N'Dea Davenport, Jan Kincaid, Dawn Joseph, and Simon Bartholomew – creating a nice mix of personalities that make the record feel even more joyously collaborative than ever – almost as if the group's borrowed a page from the Incognito book – and the great way that combo has of coming together. The sound is warm and flowing throughout – never stiff or commercial – and titles include "Heaven", "Turn The Music Up", "Do You Remember", "On The One", "Sunlight", "Forward", "Addicted", and "A Little Funk In Your Pocket". CD
(Limited edition contains the album plus two CDs of Live at the Indigo2 from London.)

✨✧ JamiroquaiTravelling Without Moving ... CD
Sony, 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mindblower from Jamiroquai – the album that really broke them out of the box, thanks to an increasingly complicated sense of rhythm! For the set, Jay and the group pulled up some of the more dynamic sounds from the London underground, and wove them together with their increasingly great songwriting – coming up with tunes that played beautifully on the dancefloor, yet also offered deeper listening than on previous Jamiroquai efforts! There's still some great 70s elements here, but there's also a more cosmic, righteous vibe too – a hint at spacey London to come, but sent home with a bit more polish here. Titles include "Virtual Insanity", "Cosmic Girl", "Everyday", "Alright", "High Times", "Travelling Without Moving", "Spend A Lifetime", "Use The Force", and "Didjital Vibrations". CD also features the bonus track "Do You Know Where You're Coming From". CD
