✨✧ Jarrod LawsonJarrod Lawson (180 gram vinyl) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Soul Brother (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A stunning debut from Jarrod Lawson – a singer we fell in love with right away – and who we'd rank right up there with some our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s! Yes, the cover's got a look that's more indie rock – but Jarrod's got this righteous vibe and sense of flow that seems to tie together distant strands of influence – from Marvin Gaye to Gil Scott Heron to jazz singers like Al Jarreau, Kurt Elling, or Mark Murphy! Backings are jazzy, but with a focused, soulful groove – warmed up by keyboards, but kept fresh with lots of live instrumentation that really matches the rich sense of inflection in Lawson's voice – an amazing range, but one that's never overstated, overdone, or overused. All the tracks are originals – and the record's one that you'll be spinning for years to come! Titles include "Sleepwalkers", "Walk In The Park", "Redemption", "Needed", "Everything I Need", "All That Surrounds", "Spiritual Eyes", and "Together We'll Stand". LP, Vinyl record album

Luman ChildTime To Grow (with download) ... LP
Suisa (Switzerland), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
There's always time to grow, but this fresh take on jazzy hip hop soul feels fully ripe and mature to us! Luman Child handles programming, bass, clavinet, Moog, piano and more, brings in a diverse roster of soulful singers, rhymers and instrumental guests, and to all of their credit, it feels lot more like the work of a longtime collective than a studio project. It's a mix of jazzy soul and hip hop vocals with guests Squala Orphan, Sean J Rankine, Fresh Daily, Joseph Junior, Iza Brown and others – and titles include "Life Is Like A Cloud", "All About You" with Sean J Rankine, "Up & Down" with Ryan Marshall & Joseph Junior, "Was It Better" wtih Iza Brown, "The Birdsong" with Denis Corboz leading the way on flugelhorn, "Something About The The Way You Love Me" with Robert Gee, the title track "Time To Grow" with Fresh Daily, "Hey Brother" with Joseph Junior and "Summer Soul". Excellent stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin ParksMarvin Parks Vols 1 & 2 ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A dream of a record from Marvin Parks – a hell of a jazz singer, and one that we'd place in an elite legacy that runs from Oscar Brown up through Jose James! The work here is wonderful – as Nicola Conte produced the record, and gives it the same sort of jazzy sparkle as his own sublime records of the past decade – a groove that's never too overstated, but is also a reworking of an older 60s soul jazz mode – but refitted with all the right sort of sophistication to match Marvin's wonderful voice! There's no programmed rhythms at all – all the instrumentation is live jazz – and titles include a great new take on the Conte tunes "Sea & Sand" and "Awakening" – plus the original "African Other Blues", and versions of "Charade", "How Insensitive", "The Very Thought Of You", "Brother Where Are You", "Nature Boy", "If I Should Lose You", and "Swingin Shepherd Blues". 2LP version features 3 bonus tracks – "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set", "If You Could See Me Now", and "All Blues".

Satoshi Yoshida with Takuya KurodaMememto ... CD
Pirates (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little set that follows strongly in the mode of some of the best recent Blue Note work from the spiritual funk underground – such as releases by Robert Glasper and Takuya Kuroda – the latter of whom plays on most of this set! The album's leader is guitarist Satoshi Yoshida, but he works here with an excellent lineup of Japanese and American musicians – including Kris Bowers, who plays sublime Fender Rhodes on most tracks – and trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, who blows with the same beautiful flow that we love on his own records! Most tracks have the guitar, trumpet, and Rhodes tied together beautifully – with the usual bass and drums, kicking up some subtle, soulful rhythms. Maya Hatch sings vocals on a funky soul version of "In A Sentimental Mood", and DJ Yuze adds turntables to another cut – and titles include "Brother T", "Memento", "Here & There", "Grind", "Missing You So Much", "The Source", and "See You In My Dreams".

✨✧ Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousDiamonds – T-Groove Works Vol 1 ... LP
Kissing Fish (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music here is sharp as a diamond – thanks to great production and mixing from Yuki "T-Groove" Takahashi on all the cuts! Tunes are by a variety of artists, and are mostly in a soulful club style – upbeat, positive, and overflowing with great energy – never too uptempo, but always grooving – and often touched by as many jazzy elements in the music as there are soulful touches in the vocals! We've not seen most of these tracks on record in any other format – and titles include "Spring Fever" by T-Groove with Saucy Lady, "Give It Up (T-Groove ext rmx)" by Cool Million with Laura Jackson, "Take This Love (T-Groove rmx)" by Two Jazz Project with Marie Meney & Didier La Regie, "Let's Go Together (T-Groove rmx)" by Sho Kamijo with Ron Brown, "You Are Love (T-Groove disco mix)" by Rudi Wilburn, "Diamonds (T-Groove rmx)" by Two Jazz Project with Marie Mene & Didier La Regie, "Hotter (T-Groove rmx)" by The Doggett Brothers with Laura Jackson, and "Another Weekend (T-Groove single rmx)" by Peo featuring Chris.

Eric RobersonMoon (radio, acapella, single, inst) ... 12-inch
Warner, 1994. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A rare glimpse at the earlier years of singer Eric Roberson – a promo-only single, issued during his very brief stay at Warner Brothers! The track's a bit more mainstream than Roberson's solo work of the 21st Century – but still plenty darn great, and the kind of real soul track that certainly would have grabbed our attention at the time – had it gotten any radio play!

✨✧ Kenny WellingtonFree Spirit ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album from trumpeter Kenny Wellington – one that shows us that the 70s spirit of artists like Roy Ayers and the Mizell Brothers is alive and well – as long as you know where to look! The record's contemporary, but has a really classic blend of jazz and soul – one that still allows plenty of space for Kenny's soaring solo work, but also has a wonderful focus on sharp rhythms and a righteous overall sound! The balance is no surprise – given that Kenny's got a legacy that goes back to classic work in the groups Central Line, Light Of The World, and Beggar & Co – but this album's way deeper and more powerful than anything Washington gave us back in the day – and features some especially nice work on vocals, by a quartet that's headed up by Augie Johnson, who brings in a vibe that's similar to his music with Side Effect and the LA Boppers. The whole thing's wonderful – righter than most folks sound when they go for a groove like this – and titles include "Heading Home", "Dreaming Of Futures Bright", "Fat Cherry", "Kings For A Day Masters Of The Night", "You Can Run", "E3 Symphony", and "Miles 2 Go".
