✨✧ 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

✨✧ JP Bimeni & The Black BeltsFree Me ... CD
Tucxone (Spain), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful work from JP Bimeni – a hell of a soul singer, even without such a tight band backing him up – a new talent to our ears, but one who could have easily held his own on the Memphis or Muscle Shoals scenes of the 60s! JP's way more than just another singer with a funky combo – as he's got this way of sending over a lyric that's really fantastic – full of inflections and expressions – but neither overdone, nor just trying to ape some old school modes. We might even go so far as to say that his work here rivals that of Al Green or Johnnie Taylor – but we'll let you decide for yourself, on titles that include "Better Place", "Stupid", "Don't Fade Away", "Same Man", "Pain Is The Name Of Your Game", "Free Me", and "Moonset".

Herbie MannIt's A Funky Thing – The Very Best Of Herbie Mann (with bonus track) ... CD
Atlantic/Varese, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $9.99 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! Herbie wasn't the first to pick up the instrument and use it for groovy instrumentals – Moe Koffman and a few others had some luck before this work – but the cuts here showcase a time when Herbie was really exploding, working with great production and soulful backing on Atlantic records, and even recording with a few singers too. The music is mostly instrumental, but there's also cuts recorded with Tamiko Jones and Carmen McRae, and the album also features one A&M title, in addition to his Atlantic work here. The set has a great focus on the 45rpm single mixes of these tunes – and the set even moves into a bit of the disco years, with titles that include "Philly Dog", "To Sir With Love", "Life For Life", "Unchain My Heart", "Memphis Two Step", "Push Push (part 1)", "Respect Yourself", "Hijack", "Cajun Moon", "Superman", "Waterbed", Comin Home Baby", "A Man & A Woman", and "Memphis Underground". Also includes a bonus track – "It's A Funky Thing Right On", a recorking of "Memphis Underground" with vocals by Little Milton! (Jazz, Deep Funk) CD
