New Burnt SugarFubractive Since Antiquity Suite ... CD CD format
Trugroid, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The final chapter in Burnt Sugar's 2001 trilogy – and quite possibly the most subtle, as the group's sound builds slowly over time, showing their complex approach to the music – an indescribable blend of soul jazz, jamming funk, black rock, and larger, more complicated influences. The group's quite large on all 3 chapters in this series – and overall, the work reminds us of the optimism, energy, and criss-crossing cultural mileus that marked the early 80s downtown scene at its best. Titles include "The Sandpiper", "Fubractive", "Round About/At Midnight", and "Take My Hand". CD

New Burnt SugarSirens Return – Keep It Real 'Til It Flatlines ... CD CD format
Trugroid, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first part in Burnt Sugar's 2001 trilogy – a darkly jamming effort that's located somewhere at the "intersection of Stockhausen and Shorter"! The guitars are very strongly in the lead on this one – sounding almost like a Glen Branca-driven jamband, as Vernon Reid, Rene Akhan, Morgan Michael Craft, and Kirk Douglass jam like mad, and create dark waves of sound with a slightly soulful edge. Titles include "The Sirens Return", "Screamin Arthur Zafa", "Castles Made Of Sand", and "Two Bass Blipsch". CD

New Rebellum (Burnt Sugar Arkestra)Darknuss ... CD CD format
Burnt Sugar/Avantgroidd, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A blistering blend of righteous sounds, funky jazz, and knowledge – very much in the best Burnt Sugar tradition, but served up here by their Rebellum offshoot! Lyrics and beats are from the mighty Greg Tate – and definitely reflect his long connection to progressive cultural experiments – but the full sound is a heady brew of saxes, drums, and guitar from the group – plus plenty of guests on added instrumentation and vocals as well. The whole thing's got a very collaborative vibe – in the best Burnt Sugar tradition – and titles include "Spankalick", "Guelph", "Young Fankenstank", "Heartseed", "Trelle To The Lew", "Somebody To Love You", "Ten Times Left", and "Chains & Water/No Coloureds Allowed".

New Dayton FlicTakin' You Back To The Music Suite ... CD CD format
Trugroid, Early 80s/2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Basement soul grooves that reach for the cosmos from Dayton Flic – a project that started in the early 80s Ohio scene – and is only now seeing the light of day! Takin' You Back To The Music Suite features tracks that were recorded in the post disco early 80s – spacey soul tunes with some nice funky bass work by future Burnt Sugar member Jared Michael Nickerson, guitars and programming by Chris Bowman – Hammond, Rhodes and Moog by Dean Hummons – drums by Roger "The Dodger" Parker and vocals from Jenny Douglas. The members all went on to some incredibly diverse session and touring work, while Jared went on to cohabitate the free form jazz funk Burnt Sugar collective! The opener "Taking You Back" has recently recorded additional vocals from fellow Burnt Sugar collaborator Justice Dilla X, and that tune is remixed to close out the set – while the 1982 sessions make up the Music Suite section, a flowing piece that really does serve as sort of a cosmic soul suite – with the tracks "Move Your Body", "Livin For Your Love", I'm Mad" and interludes.
