DexterTrip ... CD
Melting Pot (Germany), 2013. Used ... $6.99
Funky hip hop beatcraft laced with far out psychedelic samples from German producer Dexter – and it's a trip, alright – a far out funky one at that! Dexter lays down a thick layer of hypnotic beats underneath a sprawling batch of sampled sounds from the psychedelic area and beyond, but Dex's craft is at the forefront. This is a compelling batch of (mostly) instrumental tracks that blend timelessly tripped out hip hop, heavy jazz, funk and psych samples – particularly the wild bits psych era bits of film dialogue! Includes "Once Gain Back (Tune In)", "San Francisco" with DJ Adlib, "Walk With Us", "Psychedelic Club Scene", "Rainbow Flight", "Teenage Mother", "With Ease", "Hippie Revolt (Turn On)", "You & I", "Dexy Lovecraft", "Acido (Heavyyy)", "Never Knew", "Pictures" featuringJosa Peit, "Summerdays (Drop Out)" and more.

✨✧ Delvon Lamarr Organ TrioLive At KEXP ... CD
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great combo, in a really great setting – the trio of organist Delvon Lamarr, captured in a sweet live radio performance! The tunes are long and open – very much in the group's killer blend of soul jazz and deep funk – with plenty of room for Delvon to soar out on the keys of the Hammond, and remind us again what a massive younger talent he is on the instrument! If you like the group's funky 45s, you'll find yourself really loving this live set – and the whole thing's only got us eager to keep on following the great growth of this group. Titles include a sweet remake of the Curtis Mayfield tune "Move On Up" – plus "Concussion", "I Don't Want To Play That", "Tacoma Block Party", "South Leo St Stomp", and "Memphis". CD
Also available Live At KEXP (with bonus download) ... LP 20.99

MadmadmadMadmadmad ... LP
Ill Considered/Stac (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Tight instrumental work from the UK scene – a record that's part funky, part fuzzy, and very electric overall – almost a hybrid of jazz fusion and some of the electro modes that first found space on horror soundtracks of the 70s and 80s! The group's got lots of guitar pyrotechnics from Benjamin Bouton – who weaves his lines around the keyboards and bass of Kevin Toublant, and the mix of electric and acoustic drums of Leon Brichard – who always seems to provide a driving rhythm, no matter what the setting – but at a level that never overwhelms the other elements too much. The sound definitely echoes the stark video image on the cover – and titles include "Mouse Rock", "Motor Clap", "Gwarn", "Hot Disco", "Proper Music", "Kraut", and "Randomisation".

Natural Yogurt BandAway With Melancholy (LP sleeve edition – limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Jazzman/Now Again, 2008. Used ... $6.99
One of the hippest non-reissue records we've heard so far from the Jazzman Records empire – a massive set of grooves with a really odd sort of feel! Natural Yogurt Band work in spare, funky territory – serving up some very heavy drums (played by Wayne Fullwood, formerly of Little Barrie) – mixed with a range of other instrumental bits that include vibes, electric piano, and some really rumbling bass! There's definitely an influence here from cinematic funk – particularly that of the Italian soundtrack variety – but the group also have a sound that's hardly retro funk at all – more of a fresh, 21st Century pastiche of the range of underground influences that have been bubbling under for years in the Jazzman scene – brought to focus in a set of instrumentals with a really mindblowing sound! Titles include "Latin Illusion", "Chapter One", "Chit Chat", "Better Days To Come", "A Broken Rose", "Lament For Piano", "Space Echo", "Soft Cheese", and "The Woods". CD

Pendletons2 Steps Away ... CD
Bastard Jazz (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $12.99
A great full length set from The Pendletons – a group who've given us some great singles in recent years, but who seem to sharpen up their sound even more in an extended setting! These guys started out in more of a lean 80s funk mode, but have really warmed up their groove – so that both the instrumentation and vocals have a rock solid quality that results in some really strong soul tunes – still funky, but with a richer, deeper quality that almost feels like when some old school funk act would go for a midtempo stepper or a mellower groove! The set features guest work from Howard Johnson and Gizelle Smith – both of whom really slide into the Pendletons sound – and titles include "Blessings For The World", "You Do You", "No Regrets", "Life To Me", "Running Away", "There Goes My Mind", "Keep It Working", and "2 Steps Away".

Selenites BandEthio Jazz Groove Project ... LP
Stereophonk, 2019. New Copy ... $29.99
An album that definitely lives up to the title – as the music here is rooted in classic Ethiopian modes, but also has the freer flow of a contemporary funky jazz ensemble! There have been other Ethio-styled albums from current groups in recent years, but this set may well be one of the best – as the group really leave room for plenty of their own sense of expression, which includes some nicely roomy solos, especially on baritone sax! Other instrumentation includes Fender Rhodes, moog, flute, bass, drums, guitar, and some guest organ – and titles include reworks of classics by Mulatu Astatke and some of his contemporaries – "Yegelle Tezeta", "Yekatit", "Muzikawi Silt", "Yekermo Sew", and "Antchim Endelela". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Slum Village & Abstract OrchestraFantastic 2020 (2CD set) ... CD
Ne'Astra, 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Slum Village teams up with the hip hop-reared jazz funk collective Abstract Orchestra for this worthy revisit/live band rework of the legendary Fantastic Vol 2 – a soulful Detroit hip hop classic and a vital piece of the late great J Dilla's legacy! A few cuts have prominent vocals, others have atmospheric backing vocals, but it's Abstract Orchestra's jazzy hip hop soul instrumentals – taking flight on the inspiration of the Jay Dee & Slum Village Detroit hip hop classic – that serve as the driving soulful spirit of this one. They are indeed a sizable crew more than earning the orchestra part of their name, but they know how to keep the core groove in a tight, headnodding mode befitting late 90s soulful hip hop, while finding space to soar within. It's also a testament to Dilla's original production that it makes so much sense fleshed out with horns, strings and more orchestral atmosphere. Titles including "Hold Tight", "Tell Me", "Jealousy", "Thelonius", "Who We Are", "Players", "What's It All About", "Forth & Back", "CB4:, "Once Upon A Time", "Untitled", "Eyes Up" and more. 21 tracks on 2CDs.
