Sweet Charles (aka Charles Sherell)

For Sweet People From Sweet Charles
People/Universal (Japan), 1974.
A supremely fantastic album, and one that's always woefully overlooked in discussions of James Brown's incredible People label! Sweet Charles, Charles Sherell, was a great lost soul vocalist who had a voice that was warm and mellow, with a sweetness that was often missing from James' singing ... CD

Jyoti (Georgia Anne Muldrow)

Mama You Can Bet
Someothaship, 2022.
We love the work that Georgia Anne Muldrow's been giving us as Jyoti in recent years – a cool conflation of classic jazz inspiration with the future soul that's made her such a pioneer in the 21st Century – all delivered with a fresh sort of style that certainly warrants her change in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smoke (aka Black Smoke)

Smoke
Chocolate City/Universal (Japan), 1976.
A really great little funky record – even if it's a bit of a mystery in the record racks at times! This group were one of a number to use the name Smoke during the 70s – but at some point they were forced to change their name to Black Smoke, and you'll see the record listed both ways, ... CD
EmArcy/Universal (Japan), 1972.
A brilliant pairing of piano talents – and a record that also features some incredible horn work from Billy Harper and Hannibal Marvin Peterson too! Masabumi Kikuchi plays electric piano throughout – working with a large Evans-led ensemble that also includes Harper on tenor and flute, ... CD

Charles Earland

Perceptions
Mercury (Japan), 1978.
Charles Earland really soars to the heavens here – working in a style that's very different than his early jazz albums on Prestige, but which still features plenty of great solo moments too! Earland's key partner in crime here is the great Randy Muller – the man behind the sound of ... CD
Sonafric/Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. (reissue)
Orchestre Volta Jazz may not play much of the "jazz" in their name – but they do manage to bring together so many other styles of music in a mighty nice groove – a heady West Africa brew of elements from both sides of the Atlantic, served up here in a well-done collection of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s.
Maybe one of the best reggae collections the Soul Jazz label has ever given us – a really rich collection of tracks from the Studio One collection, all with female singers in the lead – a good number of which have never been reissued before! Soul Jazz has been covering the Studio One ... CD

Hidefumi Toki with Mikio Masuda

Sky View (SHMCD pressing)
Frasco/Universal (Japan), 1976.
Hidefumi Toki is easily one of our favorite Japanese players from the 70s – an excellent alto saxophonist who always comes across with a sense of soul that's even deeper than his instrument! Toki has a way of putting together a session that's totally great – relaxed and open, with a ... CD
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. (pic cover)
One of the grooviest albums ever recorded – a set that's funky, offbeat, and has way more to offer than most American album of the time! Swedish singer Doris really knocked it out of the park with this one – working with arranger Bert Egerbladh, who gives the set some nicely unusual ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Late 70s/1980s. 2LP
A set of tracks that take the new age into the space age – all served up from the Valley Of The Sun label, and presented here in a really well-done compilation! These tracks are the side of new age that's less acoustic and more electronic – some of the music that you might have ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lord & Dego

Lord & Dego (2022)
2000 Black (UK), 2022. 2LP
There's few folks who can conjure up the right sort of intensity without ever giving us any vocals – and the team of Matt Lord and Dego really knock it out of the park with this one – working in this fantastic London vibe that's very post-4Hero – a mix of countless sweet keyboard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur Ponder

Prince Of Georgia Soul
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s.
We're not sure if Arthur Ponder ever really got crowned prince on the Georgia scene of the early 80s – but given the class and quality of the tracks on this set, he definitely comes across like some sort of royalty! In truth, only a few of the songs here were ever issued at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moor Mother

Jazz Codes
Anti, 2022.
Moor Mother's an artist who just keeps on getting more and more interesting with each new release – definitely in a genre that's completely her own – one that lives up to the spirit of west coast underground pioneers in recent decades – and, as with those artists, seemingly finds ... CD

Future Flight

Future Flight
EMI/Universal (Japan), 1981.
Lamont Dozier wrote, produced, and arranged this set – and it's got all the hallmarks of his best smooth modern soul work from the time! Future Flight are kind of an AOR type group, but here, Dozier gives them a well-placed dose of soul, expanding the vocals with some clever arrangements, ... CD
Musique Mondiale/Numero, 1982. (reissue)
A real classic in the world of Mali music – a set that features a mighty lean groove that's focused on the guitar work of Zani Diabate – who has this amazing way of weaving together past and present, and creating a very timeless vibe! The cover hardly seems to fit the early 80s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970s. 2LP
The first ever career-spanning look at the music of legendary vocalist Asha Puthli – a singer who's maybe best known for her 70s club work on the European scene, but who also has a much wider range of expression – which you'll discover here! There's definitely some of the soul-based ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1963. (reissue)
A landmark early moment from Doris Troy – a set that has her shining not just as a key 60s soul singer for Atlantic Records – but also as a heck of a great songwriter too! She's got a really fresh approach here – one that's right up front for the time – with a mix of raw ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Unlimited

In Heat
20th Century/Universal (Japan), 1974.
Classic 70s female soul – and one of the best albums ever recorded by Love Unlimited – a trio of ladies recording with Barry White during his glory years! The album's got a really incredible approach – partly in the mode of older female group soul, but also done with a hipper, ... CD
Madlib Invazion, 2010. 2LP (reissue)
Formative Madlib beatcraft – music made by 'Lib from 1990-2000 – crafted into a tight full length album that feels as fresh as ever! History Of The Loop Digga features funky hip hop instrumentals made at a time when he was producing underground beat tapes for himself and the Crate ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1958. (reissue)
A pivotal album in the career of saxophonist Lou Donaldson – a set that really has him finding his own groove – a slow-stepping, soul-drenched mode that's a nice change from the bop of his roots! A key part of the record's charm is conga work by Ray Barretto – a player used often ... LP, Vinyl record album
