Afro Soul ProphecyHeat In The City ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2021. Used Gatefold ... $12.99
A bright new groove on the Schema Records label – but one that features work from some of the company's real heavyweights in recent years – as the album was conceived and produced by Lucio Cantone (aka Invisible Session), and features tunes written by the funky Alex Puddu – all in ...

✨✧ Baby Elephant (Prince Paul & Bernie Worrell)Turn My Teeth Up! ... CD
Defend, 2007. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Weirdly tripped-out funk from Baby Elephant – a compelling collaboration from Prince Paul, Newkirk, and P-Funk keyboardist Bernie Worrell! The sound here is quite odd – kind of a dismantling of older P-Funk modes, stripped down into a handful of key elements, then re-assembled in a ... read more CD

Butcher Brown#KingButch ... CD
Concord, 2020. Used ... $6.99
Fantastically jamming genius from Butcher Brown – a contemporary funk combo, but one with a sound that owes nothing to anyone else! These guys aren't retro, or any kind of jamband offshoot – and instead, they rework vintage instrumentation with a very fresh feel of their own – a ... read more CD

Brian Ellis GroupEscondido Sessions ... CD
El Paraiso, 2015. Used ... $6.99
A contemporary set from the west coast scene – and one that's got a similar feel to the soaring, spiritual sounds we've heard from some of the projects of Carlos Nino – but a quality that's maybe a bit more tripped-out overall! All tracks are long, and very jamming – with loads ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

Lee Fields & The ExpressionsIt Rains Love ... CD
Big Crown, 2019. Used ... $9.99
We've loved the music of Lee Fields for many many years – but these days, he seems to be sounding even better than ever – taking all of his decades of experience in soul music, and blending his deep soul roots with an even more mature, open sort of style! And even though Lee's early ... read more CD

FunkommunityChequered Thoughts ... CD
Melting Pot (Germany), 2012. Used ... $5.99
Kiwi funk and soul from Funkommunity – a modern collective that's anchored by the duo of producer Isaac Aesili and soulful singer Rachel Fraser – and they deliver a very promising debut here for Melting Pot! Funkommunity has a far more distinctly modern vibe than their more throwback-s ... (New Grooves, Deep Funk) read more CD

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsDap-Dippin' With Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings ... CD
Daptone, 2002. Used ... $8.99
A stunner – the first full album by deep funk singer Sharon Jones, and an instant soul masterpiece! The album's right up there with the best work by James Brown divas like Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson, and Lyn Collins – and overall, we might dare say that the album's even better than ... read more CD

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings100 Days 100 Nights ... CD
Daptone, 2007. Used ... $5.99
They might be borrowing her band, but they sure can't dampen her soul – because Sharon Jones is strongly back in action, and sounding funkier and more deeply soulful than ever! Given that Sharon wasn't singing back in the 60s, it's hard to think we'd be calling her the real deal – but ... read more CD

✨✧ Lady BlackbirdBlack Acid Soul ... CD
BMG (UK), 2022. Used ... $7.99
Lady Blackbird takes on a Nina Simone tune on the very first track on this set – quite a risky move, but the Lady's got a voice that's definitely up to the challenge! The singer's the sort that comes along once in a blue moon – a richly talented artist who's able to take any sort of ... (Neo Soul, Deep Funk) read more CD

Medeski, Martin & WoodFriday Afternoon In The Universe ... CD
Ryko/Gramavision, 1995. Used ... $4.99
The second Gramavision album by MM&W, and a batch of grooves that shows them opening up their style a lot more than on their first one. There's equal parts of Larry Young and Jimmy McGriff mixed into the organ here, and the rhythm, while tight, is also got a nice open-ended feel. Titles ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

NomoNomo ... CD
Ypsilanti, 2004. Used ... $6.99
A massive slice of Afro Funk from the Detroit scene – recorded by a group that we'd rank right up there with The Daktaris, Antibalas, and the best of the Afro-revival scene! The group's got a really great approach that brings plenty of jazz into the mix – really using the horns to ... (Global Grooves, Deep Funk) read more CD

Ben PiraniHow Do I Talk To My Brother? ... CD
Colemine, 2018. Used ... $4.99
A great little soul set by a singer we're betting will have a long run in the funky underground – a relative newcomer, but one who comes across with a power that really belies his time in the studio! Ben Piriani's music has this righteous, full-on groove that reminds us a lot of that moment ... read more CD

Juan RozoffMaison Rozoff ... CD
Underdog (France), 2009. Used ... $2.99
French funk from Juan Rozoff – a singer with a hell of a slinky groove! Juan's take on funk is more from the Prince generation than the James Brown one – but he definitely gets that sharp 80s sound totally right – snapping basslines and laying down beats beautifully, while ... read more CD
