Daptone, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
We'll be the first to admit, we were always a bit suspicious of James Hunter at the start – but over the years, with records this great, he's really won us over – to the point that we're not sure why we even had any question about his music in the first place!

Ubiquity, 2016. Used ... $9.99
A sweet return to Brown Sabbath territory – that wicked blend of deep funk rhythms and fuzzy guitar, served up by the Brownout collective! The groove has some of the Latin elements that you'd know from Adrian Quesada's other work – but the rising guitar lines dominate a lot more – ... read more CD

Pony Canyon (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
The first music we've heard in quite awhile from Jazztronik – and a set that has them sounding even more funk-oriented than before!

Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99

Atlantic/Varese, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A record that definitely delivers the very best of Herbie Mann – especially if, like us, you think that one of his greatest contributions to music was finding a way to make the flute sound surprisingly soulful in the 60s!

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
Nothing frou frou about this heavy little set – as the record's a rock solid batch of African rhythms, served up with a distinctively Ethiopian feel – at a level that's even groovier than the group's first album!
