CotoneteInside Outside – First EP Series Vol 1 ... 12-inch
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
A jazzy instrumental with a very classic vibe – served up with some especially nice keyboard work from Florian Pellissier – who you might know from records issued under his own name! "Inside Outside" owes a fair bit to 70s funky jazz for inspiration – but it's also got a crackling sort of rhythm approach – played live, but maybe inherited a bit from the broken beat generation – which gives the music an urgently current vibe. Side one features the long core track of the tune – originally written by MPS legend Joanne Grauer – and side two features two Phil Asher/Restless Soul reworks. (New Grooves, Deep Funk) 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jukka Eskola Soul TrioJukka Eskola Soul Trio ... CD
Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
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 expand the trio's wonderful groove – a mode that's partly soul jazz, but with very rich flavors of its own – hardly any sort of easy copycat of old American modes! Teppo Makynen – aka Teddy Rok – plays drums, alongside Mikko Helava on organ – and while the album shows all the respect for soulful jazz traditions that we've heard in previous music from Rok, Eskola, and Lassy – the sound is also very different, fresh, and quite original! Titles include "Hong Thong", "Railyard Boogie", "Subterranean Variations", "For Anne Lee", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Introducing The Trio", "Soft Drop", and "Jumpin Punkins". (Jazz, Deep Funk) CD
Also available Jukka Eskola Soul Trio ... LP 18.99

Georgia Soul CouncilWhat's For Breakfast ... LP
Dig, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
Grits, bacon, and biscuits on top of a Hammond B3? The record's already got our attention, and we haven't even heard the music! Fortunately, we're already in love with these guys – as they really wowed us with their previous album, and seem to have sharpened their groove even more – mixing a funky rhythmic core with some great southern soul instrumental modes – all at a level that more than lives up to the mighty promise of their name! Most of the album is instrumental, although there's a bit of guest vocals on one track – and titles include "Gravy Flavored", "Get Up & Do It", "The Grimace", "Hot Fun", and "Lahar".

Jungle FireFirewalker/Chalupa ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99
Fast guitar steps out quick on "Firewalker" – setting a groove that's followed by fast congas and some heavy riffing horns – all burning together with just the right sort of intensity you'd guess from the group's name! "Chalupa" continues with a sweet tropical groove – darn funky, and with this cool plunky beat that's mighty unique! (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) 7-inch, Vinyl record

JohnnyOnly Love (voc, inst) (with download) ... 7-inch
Now Again, 2016. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Killer blend of raw funk and fuzzy guitar from Johnny! – spearheaded by neo-classic funk heavy J Whitefield! Whitefield's is a key contemporary funk player to say the least – busting regional and stylistic boundaries with Poets Of Rhythm, Karl Hector & The Malcouns, Whitefield Brothers and more over the years – while always keeping it funky. Johnny! is another exciting chapter, deserving of exclamation point in the name – leaning more on fuzzy funk guitars and raw drums of Ghana and Zambia in inspiration – working with Henry Taylor (some of Ghana legend Ebo Taylor), singer and percussionist Eric Owusu and others. Includes the vocal and instrumental. (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) 7-inch, Vinyl record
