✨✧ Midnight Hour (Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad)Midnight Hour Live At Linear Labs ... CD
Linear Labs, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Adrian Younge is best known as a studio genius – and he's certainly working in that setting here – but in a live environment, with a larger group – in a way that really shows off a whole new side of his talents! Younge's partner here is Ali Shaheed Muhammad – who plays bass alongside Adrian's keyboards – and the pair work with a core combo that includes alto, trumpet, guitar, and drums – plus a string duo who really give the whole thing a special vibe! The sound is very different than just a regular funk group – and while strings are normally used as an overdubbed add-on for many recordings, it's great to hear them working live here – a perfect complement to the deep ideas that Younge and Muhammad bring to the music. The vibe is a bit like a live David Axelrod session – save for occasional guest vocals from Loren Oden and Angela Munoz – and titles include "Black Beacon", "Better Endeavor", "Do It Together", "It's You", "Dans Un Moment D'Errance", "Bitches Do Voodoo", "Ravens", "Gate 54", and "Redneph In B Minor.

Loren OdenAdrian Younge Presents Loren Oden – My Heart My Love – Instrumentals ... LP
Linear Labs, 2020. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
A record that should really just be billed under the name of Adrian Younge, and maybe not Loren Oden – as the set features all of Adrian's sweet instrumental backings for Oden's vocals – a cool deep funk set that's got all the classic currents of some of Younge's other productions in recent years, but with a nice twist too. There's some surprising contemporary elements going on, too – warm currents of 21st Century soul, tripping along in a gentle Linear Labs sort of way – beats on the backburner, as the keyboards often carry as much rhythm as melody – with the right sort of gently bubbling vibe to come through strongly on titles that inlcude include "All Roads", "Galaxies", "Addicted", "Queen", "My Heart My Love", "Somber Sonnet", and "Timeless Answers".

✨✧ Angela Munoz/Adrian YoungeIntrospection – Instrumentals ... LP
Linear Labs, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Singer Angela Munoz gets billing on the cover – but since the album's all instrumental, the main talent here is producer Adrian Younge! The tracks are funky, but mellow – nicely tripping with those classic sweet soul touches that have always made Adrian one of the best interpreters of cool 70s mellow modes – and although there's no vocals in the lead, the laidback grooves here have a very seductive feel – almost soundtrack funk, but without any of the "chase" scenes in the lineup. Titles include "Top Down", "Can I Get Your Name", "Don't Show It", "I Don't Care", "Stardust", "Feel The Same", "In My Mind", and "So Young". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Loren OdenAdrian Younge Presents Loren Oden – My Heart My Love ... CD
Linear Labs, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first we've ever heard of Loren Oden – a singer with a falsetto style that's perfect for the sweetly soulful backings of Adrian Younge – a mix of modes that's almost in the same territory as Adrian's record with The Delfonics a few years back! Yet the style here is also more contemporary – warm currents of 21st Century soul, tripping along in a gentle Linear Labs sort of way – beats on the backburner, as the keyboards often carry as much rhythm as melody – with the right sort of gently bubbling vibe to match the mellow soul energy of Oden's vocals! The whole thing's a contemporary sweet soul album to rival the greatness of gems from the 70s – with titles that include "All Roads", "Galaxies", "Addicted", "Queen", "My Heart My Love", "Somber Sonnet", and "Timeless Answers".
