JP Bimeni & The Black BeltsFree Me ... CD
Tucxone (Spain), 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
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".

Durand Jones & The IndicationsDurand Jones & The Indications ... CD
Dead Oceans, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
Easily one of the best deep soul albums we've heard in years – new work by a singer who hails from Indiana, but who's able to give the best from Memphis and Muscle Shoals a real run for their money! Durand Jones isn't one of these cats who's trying to fake it with a few retro touches – and instead, he gets right to the heart of the matter, right from the very first note – with a deep vocal approach that's rivaled by a rare few in the contemporary scene – maybe Lee Fields (and maybe that's it!) The vocals are perfect – never forced or cliched, and really right on the money – and the Indications do a great job, too – with these lean backings that never overwhelm, yet really help keep things funky. Hats off to drummer Aaron Frazier and guitarist Blake Rhein, who wrote most of the songs on the record with Jones – and titles include "Make A Change", "Can't Keep My Cool", "Groovy Babe", "Giving Up", "Now I'm Gone", and "Is It Any Wonder".

✨✧ CongregationRecord Collection ... CD
Congregation, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Congregation must have quite a big record collection – given the range of classic influences that go into their music – a wealth of sounds from Motown to Memphis soul, to some deeper blues currents that come from their Chicago hometown! The group are a tight little collective – able to burn slow, or burst out strongly on their horns – and this time around, they seem to have an even stronger southern soul vibe than before – all graced by the lead vocals of singer Gina Bloom. Titles include "Record Collection", "They Will Fall", "Sentimental One", "Until We Die", "Love Letter", "Better Days", and "The Bottom". CD

Herbie MannIt's A Funky Thing – The Very Best Of Herbie Mann (with bonus track) ... CD
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! 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
