✨✧ Baker BrothersAvid Sounds ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2009. Used ... $5.99
Even more soulful stuff than before from The Baker Brothers – a record that really has them getting past the gritty funk of earlier records, and hitting a fuller groove that's totally great! The sound here is expanded past the guitar-heavy sounds that we first came to love from the Bakers – and while there's still plenty of funk going on in the set, we're even more impressed at the added range of instrumentation – more keyboards, bits of horns and Hammond, and a rich sound that's pure 70s soul all the way through! Almost all the cuts here are covers – really well-done versions of older numbers, both rare and classic – and most numbers have some vocals, sung by group members, and Vanessa Freeman guesting on one track – a great version of "Family Tree". Other cuts include "Space Funk", "Street Player", "Shack Up", "Couldn't Get It Right", "Lady Day & John Coltrane", "Fly Like An Eagle", "Cola Bottle Baby", "The Mexican", and "Rock Creek Park". CD

✨✧ New Jersey KingsStratosphere Breakdown (UK pressing) ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 1995. Used ... $6.99
Hard hitting funky 45 material – supposedly recorded by a "lost" funk group from the 70s, but actually the James Taylor Quartet playing under a different name! That little bit of name trickery doesn't stop the album from being a nice batch of funky jazz tracks, though – with lots of hard drums and nice organ solos in the lead, hitting hard like the best early work by the Taylor Quartet, but with a few nice 70s funk touches in the mix! Lots of nice tracks, including "Dream Waves", "On Or Off", "Green Screen", and "Smokin". CD

Alex PudduGolden Age Of Danish Pornography Vol 3 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
A great third chapter in the Danish Pornography series by Alex Puddu – and, like the others, music that was recorded to accompany the re-release of some classic adult films from the 70s! As you'd guess from the title and project, the sound here is very retro overall – wicked funk that works very hard to hit all the right slinky and sleazy notes needed to accompany the images of grown-up fun on the screen – with plenty of electric touches on a range of different keyboards and guitar (and even a bit of electric sitar, too) – in grooves that have a nicely building vibe, but which never try too hard to overtake the visual energy of the moment. In other words (if we can extend this metaphor even further), Alex is great at the foreplay, keeps things going a long time, and really knows how to build to a musical climax – on titles that include "Lesbian Lovers", "The Swinger Generation", "Cowboys Do It Better", "Black Orgasm", "Seductive Star", "Africa Scream", "Exotic Love", "Behind Closed Doors", and "Sex Bar".

✨✧ Throttle Elevator Music feat Kamasi WashingtonRetrorespective ... CD
Wide Hive, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not a retrospective of the music of Throttle Elevator Music – as you might mistake from the title – but instead a fresh new album that features the group working tremendously with the mighty Kamasai Washington! Washington isn't just a guest, but a key member of the group – and he really helps to push forward that deepening sound they've developed since their first release – a huge evolution that only gets better when Kamasai's on board. Washington plays tenor on the record, and contributes songs and arrangements – and some of the vibe of the set is maybe a small combo take on territory he explored on The Epic album – proud and righteous, with a very uplifting spirit. Other group members include Erik Jekabson on flugelhorn and trumpet, Ava Mendoza on guitar, Matt Mongtomery on bass and piano, and Thomas McCree on drums – and producer Gregory Howe also contributes songs and arrangements. Titles include "Flux & Solder", "Liminality", "Playing The Alleyway", "February Drift", "Subtract Limited", and "Rapid Rotation". (Jazz, Deep Funk) CD
