Experience Unlimited

Free Yourself
Black Fire/Now Again, 1977. (reissue)
A wonderfully spiritual album – and one that's maybe a bit of a surprise, given the later fame of the group! The group here is billed by their full name – Experience Unlimited – but where later known to most of the world as EU, the DC funk outfit that went onto become pretty big ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wayne Escoffery

Humble Warrior
Smoke Sessions, 2020.
There's nothing humble about the sound of Wayne Escoffery on this great little set – as the tenor giant really comes on strong, blowing with a ferocity that really matches the energy of the rest of the group! There's a stunning rhythm trio at the core – David Kikoski on piano, Ugonna ... CD

San Francisco Christian Center Choir

Sound of the San Francisco Christian Center
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 70s.
A really fantastic album of spiritual soul from a San Francisco church in the 70s – one of those rare and sublime albums that's equally appealing to fans of gospel as it is to fans of 70s soul! The arrangements and presentation are great – full of well-crafted grooves that move from ... CD

Entourage Music & Theater Ensemble

Neptune Collection
Folkways, 1976. (reissue)
Warmly experimental music from the 70s Folkways scene – music that's a mixture of jazz, folk, electronics, and improvised styles – played with an open, honest sort of feel! The Entourage Music & Theater Ensemble features four composer/musicians – Joe Clark, Wall Matthews, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Omnivore, 1976.
The Staple Singers and Curtis Mayfield – working together here in a very Curtom groove! This great little set picks off where the group's work on the Let's Do It Again soundtrack left off – taking The Staples far past their Memphis sound of the Stax years, into a hipper, more adult ... CD

Mourning A BLKstar

Cycle
Don Giovanni, 2020.
A fantastic album from Mourning A BLKstar – even more powerful than their set dedicated to Eric Garner, and a batch of material that really gets at the righteous energy of this Cleveland combo! The group see themselves as part of the James Baldwin tradition of the artist bearing witness ... CD

Jack Wilson Quartet with Roy Ayers

Call Me – Jazz From The Penthouse
Century 67, 1966.
Fantastic work from one of our favorite jazz duos of all time – pianist Jack Wilson and the young vibes genius Roy Ayers – working here back before his soul/funk fame of the 70s, in a completely different style! Ayers and Wilson only made a handful of records together back in the day ... CD

Staple Singers/Curtis Mayfield

Let's Do It Again (with bonus tracks)
Warner/Omnivore, 1975.
One of our favorite albums ever from The Staple Singers – and that's really saying a lot, as they cut a huge amount of really great records! The album's an unusual collaboration between the group and Curtis Mayfield – one that forges the great vocal styles they were developing at Stax ... CD
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1976. (reissue)
One of a few large group sessions recorded by Charles Tolliver during his years on Strata East – and an amazingly spiritual effort that really brings together the best strands of sounds running through the underground at the time! The format's a bit similar to Tolliver's previous Music Inc ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harold Mabern

Mabern Plays Mabern
Smoke Sessions, 2020.
A heartbreakingly beautiful album from pianist Harold Mabern – a set that's already beautiful on its own, but which maybe moves us even more when we realize it's one of the last that Harold has ever given us! The set's recorded at the Smoke nightclub on the upper west side – and ... CD
Folkways, 1982.
Beautiful sounds from the overlooked minimalist composer Craig Kupka – a set that features two very different tracks, each issued by Folkways Records – with a presentation that's both far away from the more academic records of the time, and some of the self-released work of the growing ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s.
Sweet sounds from a real golden age in Japanese music – a time when the scene had picked up plenty of influences from the US scene, but was carefully crafting some great styles of their own! The music here has touches of jazz, fusion, soul, and AOR – but there's a special balance that's ... CD

Lamont Butler

It's Time For A Change
Blessed/Acid Jazz (UK), 1981.
A rare bit of gospel from the Louisville scene at the start of the 80s – but a set that's also got plenty of secular soul appeal too – thanks in part to the righteous message in Lamont's lyrics, which would fit with some of the deeper sounds of 70s soul – and thanks also to the ... CD
Omni/Iron Mountain Analog Research (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Gatefold
Those hillbillies get no end of hell – but maybe that's what they should expect, what with all the cheatin, drinkin, and carryin on! This set follows in the same tradition as all the rest of the fantastic series – looking at themes of loss and remorse in midcentury country music – ... LP, Vinyl record album

El Michels Affair

Adult Themes
Big Crown, 2020.
A really different groove from El Michels Affair – but one that reminds us again that the group is really amazing at just about anything they ever try to do! The adult themes here are modes borrowed from older European styles – some of the slinky funk of Serge Gainsbourg and some of ... CD

Nemegata

Hycha Wy
Sonorama Discos, 2020.
A really striking group from the contemporary Austin scene – one that's led by Victor Andrews Cruz, and who blend together his Colombian roots with some deeper strands of guitar-based music – with resonances that move between the fuzzy sounds of Saharan guitar and some of the moodier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1969. (reissue)
An early moment of genius from the legendary Lee Perry – and a set that uses Django imagery from Italian westerns to serve up a "bad boy" version of Jamaican music for the late 60s! Even at this early point, the sounds are mindblowing – rocksteady brought through a really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni

Ritmo Dell'Industria #2
Grand Prix/BTF (Italy), 1971. (reissue)
The sound of industry, circa 1969 Italy – which means that everything sounds a heck of a lot groovier than you might expect! Soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni handled the album – and it's completely fantastic right from the very first note – nothing like an industrial ... LP, Vinyl record album
AMS (Italy), 1965. (reissue)
An archetypal record all the way through – with some of the best Morricone western styles from the period – and still one of the greatest in its genre! To match the darkness of the film, Morricone's working here in a spare, stark mode – using bits of guitar and whistling to state ... LP, Vinyl record album

Camarao Orkestra

Nacao Africa
Favorite (France), 2020.
A great release by this really unique combo – a Brazilian group, but one who are equally interested in the African roots in their music – but in ways that are completely different than any other contemporary act we can think of! Camarao Orkestra aren't one of those Fela-styled Afro ... CD
