Ji MobDirector's Cut ... CD
Comet (France), 2007. Used ... $4.99
A cool little project – one that features jazzy grooves inspired by classic films – all played by a French combo with a very hip lineup! The group's led by flute player Ji Dru – who plays both conventional and African variations on the instrument – with other instrumentation that includes Fender Rhodes, guitar, bass, and percussion – plus occasional added bits of horns. A number of cuts feature vocals – a bit by Dru, the rest from Sandra Nkake – but these aren't often used with typical song structures, and instead have a feel that's a bit more instrumental – layered in with the rest of the music in a very cinematic way. The overall feel is a mixture of jazz and soundtrack elements, with some slight African touches – and titles include "Ferdinand", "Shaolin No 13", "Saya", "The Queen", "Motorcycle Boy", "The River", "Screaming", and "Homesteader".

✨✧ VariousBlue Note Revisited ... CD
Blue Note, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A dream come true! Someone at Blue Note is keeping their eyes and ears on the street and in the clubs – because here's another late model conceptual triumph – a remix project pairing current innovators in the club and hip hop underground with classic numbers from the label's vaults! The concept is simple; classic numbers are given to handpicked remixers, re-doers, and stylistic misfits best suited to re-work that particular number. Mo Wax maestros La Funk Mob open the set with a mellow, club soul tweak of Wayne Shorter's "Oriental Funk Song". Kenny Dope trips out Bobby Hutcherson's "La Malanga" into a bubbly club funk jam. "Kyoto Jazz Massive" completely re-work Eddie Henderson's "Kudu" into a wonderful number all their own. Perhaps the biggest triumph of all here is the consistency throughout; every artist attached brings their A-game (how could they do any less, given a chance to add their own elements to the some of the most influential numbers they could get their hands on?) Amazing, amazing stuff – whether it's the scratched up, hip hop flavor J Dilla brings to Jack McDuff's "Oblighetto" or the righteous electronic groove Jazzanova drops on Eddie Gale's "Song Of The Will", the minimalist, keys and beats drive Osunlade brings into Grant Green's "A Time To Remember". Every track sparkles! Other tracks include DJ Spinna/Donald Byrd "Lansanna's Priestess", 4 Hero/Horace Silver "Won't You Open Up Your Senses", DJ Cam & Erik Truffaz/Donald Byrd "The Emperor", Herbert/Michel Petrucciani "Caravan" and more!

Todd Terry ProjectTo The Batmobile Let's Go (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fresh/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... $22.99
The funky first full length album from Todd Terry – done at a time when the dancefloor genius had really been transforming the sound of late 80s club on a host of indie singles, issued under a variety of different names – finally given the chance to shine here in the lead! The music follows in the same spirit as Terry's excellent Black Riot and Royal House records – this transformation of house rhythms to a more New York-styled groove – with all of those fantastic splashy beats that helped set his music apart from so many others, and which really paved the way for a huge wave of new east coast indie giants to come. Titles include his great remake of the early 80s groove "Weekend", plus "You're The One", "Back To The Beat", "Just Wanna Dance", "Bango (To The Batmobile)", "The Circus", "Sense", and "Made By The Man". Features six bonus tracks that include "Weekend (UK rmx)", "Just Wanna Dance (club)", "Weekend (club)", "The Circus (12" version)", "Back To The Beat (club)", and "Bango To The Batmobile (club bang)". (Soul, New Grooves) CD
