✨✧ Enrique RodriguezLo Que Es (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Extra Lovely, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful record by young Chilean pianist Enrique Rodriguez – a set that's got little more going on than piano and keyboards, but which really makes the most of those elements! Rodriguez plays in a style that's not entirely jazz – maybe more moody instrumentals with a slight bit of rhythm in the background, but always at a gentle pace – so that the tunes have a flow that's really driven by the keys, which sound equally great, whether acoustic or electric! Some tunes glow with a soundtrack theme style, others have a deeper soul vibe – and titles include "Chao", "Estamos Bien Aqui", "Una Pared", "Mantener El Arriba", "Ambos", "Lograr Decidirnos", "Lo Que Somos", and "Ni Siquiera Se Si Quiero Encontrarte". (Jazz, New Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing – in a black sleeve with the image on a sticker in the corner.)

Mayra AndradeStoria Storia ... CD
RCA/Sony (France), 2009. Used ... $11.99
Cape Verdean vocals from Mayra Andrade, but carried off with a warm and lovely feel that's almost bossa nova at points! Andrade's gently expressive in her lyrics – singing soulfully, but subtly alongside these sweet little rhythms with a touch of jazz, and some earthier percussion elements at the bottom – a blend that's almost in the territory of Maria Rita at points, but more personal overall. As with Rita, there's a bit of a stylistic link here to some of the classic work of Elis Regina – more in spirit than overall sound, as Mayra manages the same careful balance of emotion and expressivity we always love in Elis. Titles include "Palavra", "Mon Carrousel", "Morena Menina Linda", "Odjus Fitchadu", "Konsiensia", "Juana", "Seu", "Storia Storia", and "Lembransa". (Brazil, New Grooves) CD

CibelleShine Of Dried Electric Leaves ... CD
Crammed (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $3.99
One of the most unusual projects we've heard in the recent wave of genre-crossing work from the Crammed label – a beautifully fragile album of vocals and light instrumentation from the lovely Cibelle! The sound here has some of its roots in bossa, and maybe borrows a bit from traditions of France – but the overall presentation is very unique – and often just features a key instrumental element supporting the vocals, plus bits of sounds that filter into the record and give it a really textural quality. Production is by Cibelle, Apollo Nove, and Mike Lindsay – and they beautifully blend the vocals with bits of harp, glockenspiel, off-tune piano, cello, and other elements used sparely and effectively. Titles include "Green Grass", "Mad Man Song", "Lembra", "Train Station", "Por Toda A Minha Vida", "London London", "City People", and "Cajuna". (Brazil, New Grooves) CD

✨✧ Cesaria Evora & OthersClub Sodade ... CD
BMG (France), 2003. Used ... $5.99
Lovely stuff! The work of singer Cesara Evoria is remixed by a host of modern club talents – no surprise, as her best tracks of the past few years have been getting plenty of action on the 12" front – taking her from the world music scene into the clubs, with very surprising results! The record is really pretty darn wonderful overall – appealing to fans of a modern groove, but touched with all the depth, soul, and history of Cesara's fantastic voice. Titles include "Angola" remixed by Pepe Braddock, "Miss Perfumado" remixed by 4 Hero, "Nutridinha" remixed by Kerri Chandler, "Besame Mucho" remixed by Senor Coconut, "Angola" remixed by Carl Craig, "Negue" remixed by Chris Prolific, "Sangue De Beironia" remixed by Francois K, and "Bondade E Maldade" remixed by Osunlade.

✨✧ Sabrina MalheirosDreaming ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
Always-lovely work from Sabrina Malheiros – serving up a sublime blend of Brazilian roots and soulful overtones – a style that's easily made her one of the best artists on the Far Out label over the years! Sabrina's got a family lineage that traces back to Azymuth – and the music here has the similar blend of fusion instrumentation, earthy Brazilian percussion, and soaring American soul that you'll find in the best classics by that group – all with the added special spark that comes from her sweet vocals too! Production and arrangements are by Daniel Venom Maunick, who brings in a slight dose of Incognito soul too – really making for a record that's quite possibly the best we've heard from Sabrina so far – and that's saying a heck of a lot. Titles include "Lirio De Venus", "Bobeira", "Opara", "Candeia", "Fragil", "Can't Hide Love", "Primeira", and "Paranoia". (Brazil, New Grooves) CD

NicolayCity Lights Vol 2 – Shibuya ... CD
Hard Boiled, 2009. Used ... $4.99
Spacey soul soundscapes from Nicolay – another big step for the unpredictable, but always soulful beatmaker, producer, and artist – inspired by a consciousness awakening trip to Tokyo on Shibuya – City Lights Volume 2! When we were first tipped to Nicolay's sounds, it was from a soulful hip hop perspective, and he still carries that vibe, but the scope of colors he's composing with is broad – using them to craft material that's both intimate and hypnotic. Fresh beats, Rhodes, Moog, bass, strings and drums flavor the sound. Much of the material on this set is instrumental, but several tunes featuring lovely vocals by Carlitta Durand – with lyrics penned and vocal arrangements by frequent collaborator and Foreign Exchange partner Phonte Coleman. Titles include "Lose Your Way", "Saturday Night", "Wake Up In Another Life" and more with Carlitta Durand, "Shibuya Station", "Crossing", "Rain In Ueno Park", "A Ride Under The Neon Moon", "Bullet Train", "The Inner Garden", "Departure" and more.

Quintessence5AM ... CD
Jupiter (Finland), 2004. Used ... $6.99
The soulful second set from Quintessence – even better than their debut, and the kind of record that's sure to take the world by storm! The Finnish combo seem to have refined their sound even more – working in a cool, laidback groove that's got lots of sweet jazzy bits in the instrumentation – but which also comes across with an unabashedly strong crossover groove! Vocalist Emma Salokoski sounds especially lovely – singing in English with a really universal appeal – hardly what you'd expect from the icy north of Finland, and much more what we'd expect to hear from the London scene. Titles include "Delirious", "You Don't Care", "Burn On With A Bitter Flame", "Speciality", "Broken", "Dig Deeper", and "Friday". (Neo Soul, New Grooves) CD

RuralsTenth Chapter ... CD
Peng (UK), 2007. Used ... $5.99
Hard to believe these guys have got 10 albums under their belt – but over the past decade or so, The Rurals have been quietly building up a heck of a great catalog of grooves – and this album's the latest chapter in their triumphant story! The Rurals have never gotten the acclaim or attention of some of the bigger acts on the international groove scene – but their music is wonderful, and some of the most soulful dancefloor work around – a beautiful blend of beats, keys, and soul – all served up with a lot more warmth and depth than most of their contemporaries! Vocals are by the lovely Marie Tweek, and Charlie Hearnshaw plays some great sax on a few cuts – and titles include "Show Me The Love", "Steps", "Saving Time", "Rain", "7th Sun", "So High", "I'm Lost", and "Liquid".

✨✧ SlopeKomputa Groove ... CD
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2005. Used ... $6.99
A mix of older electronic styles all filtered together nicely – and topped off by a few modern hip hop and cosmic soul touches! Slope's working here in the mode established by the "Komputa Groove" single – almost a recasting of the early 80s electro mode, but one that's all broken up and jagged, and which has plenty of spaces for newer global soul influences. A few tracks feature vocals by the lovely Clara Hill – always a welcome addition to any record in our book – and other lyrics are by Ovasoul 7, Capitol A, and Eva Navrot. Titles include "At Least", "Komputa Groove", "Want'choo Longa", "Mosquitospray", "You Got To", "Nothing Like This Feeling", and "Citysteps". CD

✨✧ Some Water And SunAll My Friends Have To Go ... CD
Hefty, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
A collaboration between John Hughes (Slicker) and Shin Tasaki (Snanova) – an often lovely synthesis of stuttering electronic grooves and spacey melodies! Hefty has found a pretty comfortable niche in the melodious leftfield avant pop projects – with a sincere, unpretentious way of getting to groovy without sacrificing the oddball, out of sync elements. Tracks include "Snowbreaker", "Blossom", "Some Water And Sun", "The Rain", "Watering", "All My Friends Have To Go", "See You Next Spring", "Everything" and more! CD

Jo StanceJo Stance – The Stance Brothers Introduces A Magnificent New Talent ... CD
Ricky Tick (Finland), 2010. Used ... $9.99
A whole new groove for The Stance Brothers – every bit as funky as before, but with an added soul component as well! The lovely lady on the front cover is Johanna Forsti – aka Jo Stance – a vocalist with a sound that's got plenty of 60s soul modes overall – warm and smooth one minute, hard and raspy the next – giving the whole album the feel of a batch of lost singles from the late 60s US – particularly the more mod versions of soul that might have played big on the UK scene! All the best Stance grooves are firmly in place – augmented by trumpet from Jukka Eskola and saxes from Timo Lassy – and the shift to soul is a wonderful expansion in sound for the Ricky Tick label, who handle this mode as well as they do classic jazz. Titles include "Changes", "Sticky", "I'll Find You", "Until Tomorrow", "Treated", "Shout", "Stand Tall", "Me & You", and "Tell Me/Girls". CD
