✨✧ Sugaray RayfordWorld That We Live In ... CD
Blind Faith/Transistor Sound, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
Sugaray Rayford looks like a vintage soul singer on the cover, and he sounds like one too – here on an album that may well be the first time he really found his groove! Previous Rayford efforts have been a bit more blues-based, but the approach here goes strongly for a deep funk style – ... read more CD

✨✧ Will Sessions featuring Amp FiddlerKindred Live ... CD
Sessions Sounds, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
A fantastic step forward for Detroit's hip Will Sessions combo – a set that's every bit as funky as their previous work, but also has a soaring fusion vibe as well! Amp Fiddler's with the group on keyboards – and with his help, they hit sort of a Bitches Brew vibe here – a style ... read more CD

✨✧ Martha High with Osaka MonaurailTribute To My Soul Sisters (with bonus track) ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
A hard-smoking set of female funk – with backing from the mighty Osaka Monaurail combo! Years ago, Martha High was something of a "lost" female soul figure – an artist who worked with James Brown in the 60s, recorded a bit of disco in the 70s, but never fully got her due. ... read more CD

Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right ... read more CD

✨✧ Ji-Hoon LimOrgan Orgasm ... CD
Beatball (Korea), 2012. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic little record that's well worth all the orgasmic power promised in the title – as the set offers up a very different take on the Hammond style of years back – but still has lots of 60s qualities in the overall sound! Some of the tunes here are from unusual sources – ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

M-TetLong Play ... CD
Lugnut Brand, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
A stripped-down approach to old school funk – one that shows that you don't even need horns or a singer to keep things strongly soulful – just a few key instruments finding their grooves, and serving up great solos in the process! The group's a quartet – with Hammond, guitar, ... read more CD

Strut, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Excellent work from Souljazz Orchestra – a group who've consistently been one of the strongest contemporary Afro Funk ensembles for the past decade or so! There's a richness to the Souljazz approach that sets them apart from other groups that might just be going through the motions – ... (Global Grooves, Deep Funk) read more CD

Timmion (Finland), 2017. Used ... $9.99
A fantastic full length set from trumpeter Jukka Eskola and his Soul Trio – a combo with a strange sort of name! The group here is actually a sextet – as the core combo gets guest help from Timo Lassy on saxes, Magnus Lindgren on flute, and Ville Herrala on bass – who really ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

Curtis HardingFace Your Fear ... CD
Anti, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The cover looks a lot like a vintage soul album from the 70s – and the whole thing sounds a lot like one too – as the vocals of Curtis Harding are maybe even more wonderful here than on his debut album, and set up with these majestic grooves that are completely outta sight! The record ... (Neo Soul, Deep Funk) read more CD

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings100 Days 100 Nights ... CD
Daptone, 2007. Used ... $3.99
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

Butcher BrownLive At Vagabond ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A pretty full-on group from the Virginia scene – one that comes on strong with a mix of funky drums, fuzzy guitar, bumping bass, and some great work on trumpet and keyboards! The groove here is almost a psychedelic take on jazz funk from years back – filtered into a very contemporary ... (Jazz, Deep Funk) read more CD

The return of the great ones – and quite possibly the funkiest album ever from The Sugarman Three – a crowning achievement for this funky combo that we've loved for years! The core trio is still in place – soaring Hammond, tight tenor, and heavy drums – but they've also ... read more CD

Bette SmithJet Lagger ... CD
Big Legal Mess, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The debut album by Bette Smith – a singer with a definite 70s look on the cover, and a definite sound to match! Bette was raised in Brooklyn, where she worked for years to hone her voice to a uniquely raspy style – but she recorded this album in Mississippi, with a deep soul vibe that ... read more CD

Ajabu (Germany), 2007. Used ... $8.99
The fantastic first album from The Hi Fly Orchestra – a group we first dug on funky 45s, but who sound even better on this full length set! Unlike some of their contemporaries, who go for more of a deep funk groove, Hi Fly have a sound that's also equally jazzy – filled with hip riffs ... read more CD

Ubiquity, 2008. Used CD & DVD ... $4.99
Tripped out tracks with a funky cinematic feel – a great new project with mysterious origins – supposedly the work of the "mysterious Clutchy Hopkins", but really just the efforts of a batch of underground beatmakers! There's a spare, spacious approach here that almost ... read more CD

Honest Jons (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
Beautiful sounds from Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a group who've matured tremendously in the time that they've been giving us music – and who almost seem ready here to take on the legacy of their musical father – the late Kelan Phil Cohran! There's a complexity to the horn work ... read more CD
