Aloe BlaccGood Things ... CD
Stones Throw, 2010. Used ... $4.99
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

Karl Denson's Tiny UniverseBrother's Keeper ... CD
Shanachie, 2009. Used ... $4.99
Karl Denson's come a long way here since his earlier funk sides from years back – and for the record, his tiny universe gets expanded nicely by the addition of Meshell Ndegeocello on bass! The groove here is rich and full – almost a late 60s funky soul approach – but harder than we're used to hearing from Denson, with some especially nice drums at the bottom, which keep things quite raw, even when the songs are slightly sweetened up – and Meshell's basslines are definitely a great component of the set, as most tunes bump along with a groove that's strongly directed up from the bottom! Lead vocals are by Denson, who also plays sax and flute – and titles include "Shake It Out", "Where It Counts", "Brother's Keeper (parts 1 & 2)", "Monica", "Expressions", "Empty Soul", "Just Got Paid", "Take It Down", "Mighty Rebel", and "The Drums Of War".

✨✧ Foreign ExchangeAuthenticity ... CD
Hard Boiled, 2010. Used ... $7.99
Spacey hip hop soul gurus Phonte & Nicolay return as Foreign Exchange – taking to the cosmos with a genuine depth of soul on Authenticity – possibly their best yet, and another great record! Vocalist Phonte continues on one of the most unpredictable career trajectories in contemporary music, from southern rapper in Little Brother to emotional soul storyteller in FE – the honesty and integrity of his vocals paired masterfully with Nicolay's production. He has a way of taking keyboard inflected soul beats and inflecting them with spacier flourishes – brilliantly enhancing the soulfulness rather than glossing it up. The creative team has been a part of fantastic records by Yahzarah, Zo! and others recently, both of whom return the favor with guest appearances here – along with Darien Brockington, Chantae Cann, Median & Jesse Boykins III. Includes "The Last Fall", "Authenticity", "Eyes To The Sky", "All Roads", "Fight For Life", "Maybe She'll Dream Of Me", "Make Me A Fool", "Everything Must Go", "Laughing At Your Plans" and "This City Ain't The Same Without You".

Angela JohnsonRevised, Edited, & Flipped ... CD
Purpose, 2012. Used ... $2.99
A joyous celebration of Angela Johnson's first decade in soul music – and a smoking little set that revisits some of her best tracks from the time, and sets them on fire all over again! The package is way more than just a batch of remixes – a lots of tracks here are re-thought from the ground up, and re-fitted with a set of new sounds and styles that really illustrate Angela's growth as an artist over time – and the broad, collaborative reach she's had in the contemporary underground! Titles include "Hurts Like Hell (Makoto rmx)", "All In Me (Yannis rmx)", "You're Here With Me (MasSheen rmx)", "Wait 4 U (Josh Milan rmx)", "Rescue Me (Blu-Swing rmx)", "All I Need (Crank Brothers rmx)", "Better (Micky More rmx)", "Be Myself (Kemit & Jalon rmx)", "They Don't Know (Angela Johnson rmx)", and the great new track "Don't Take It Out On Me".

Jill Scott & OthersCollaborations ... CD
Hidden Beach, 2007. Used 2CD ... $4.99
Jill Scott's a singer with a mighty generous spirit – and in addition to her own (all too few) recordings over the years, she's made some tremendous appearances on records under the leadership of other artists – a good deal of which are included in this set! Jill's not the kind of singer to just sleepwalk into the studio and deliver a few standard vocals when making a guest shot – and instead, she brings a new sense of life and energy to each different appearance in the set – coming across with a street-heavy vibe one minute, a more laidback cosmic mode the next, and a more classically-tuned soul sound at still another point. The set's a great illustration of the depths of Scott's rich talents – and even though we'd rather have Jill spending more time in the studio recording her own music, we're still plenty happy to have so many of her great guest appearances together in one package like this! CD features 14 tracks in all – including "Love Rain" with Mos Def, presented in "head nod" and "coffee shop" remixes – plus "Said Enough" with The Isley Brothers, "One Time" with Eric Roberson, "Good Morning Heartache" with Chris Botti, "Daydreamin" with Lupe Fiasco, "Let Me" with Sergio Mendes & Will I Am, "8 Minutes To Sunrise" with Common, "Sometime I Wonder" with Darius Rucker, "Slide" with Jeff Bradshaw, "The Rain" with Will Smith, and "God Bless The Child" with Al Jarreau & George Benson. CD
(Also features a bonus CD – with material by Hidden Beach artists who include Jill Scott, Keite, Jeff Bradshaw, Peter Black, Sunny Hawkins, and Onitsha.)
