✨✧ African Music MachineBlack Water Gold ... LP
Soul Power, 1972/1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the obscure African Music Machine – a southern funk combo led by bassist Louis Villery – a legendary batch of funky singles, finally brought together as a full album! The band has a very unique sound that involves a lot of rolling bubbling basslines, spacey organ grooves, tight choppy guitar riffs, and punchy horn blasts – almost with the African elements promised in the title, but served up with a deeper funk sound all the way through! In a way, the group's a bit like Cymande or some of the other 70s hybrid ensembles – yet they've got a lot less dub, a much more direct funky groove, and plety of raw southern elements in the mix as well! This is the funky 45 material we first cut our teeth on back in the day – and the original singles are legendary! Includes massive cuts like "Black Water Gold (Pearl)", "A Girl In France", "Never Name A Baby (Before It's Born), "Making Nassau Fruit Drink", "Camel Time", "The Dapp", "Tropical", and "Mr. Brown". LP, Vinyl record album

Big Mean Sound MachineRunnin For The Ghost (with bonus download) ... LP
Peace & Rhythm, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
These guys aren't mean at all – as their groove is so warm and rhythmically compelling, they feel pretty darn friendly right from the very first note! The music's a compelling hybrid of Latin, African, and other rhythmic modes – served up with a freshness that's a nice change from some of the straighter Afro Funk combos around – who often just seem to be rehashing a 70s vibe. Instead, these guys are really trying to find their own sound – sometimes by using a bit of dub or other effects – but never in a way that's overdone, or gets in the way of the acoustic musical elements at their roots. All tracks are instrumental, and were performed live for the recording – and titles include "Return Of The March", "Touring Van", "Another Grain Of Sand", "Runnin For The Ghost", "Seeing The Bigger Picture", and "Van Chatter".

✨✧ Phil Woods & His European Rhythm MachinePhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine (Pierre Cardin) ... LP
Pierre Cardin (France), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album of funky electric jazz – and possibly the best one that Phil Woods cut with his European group! The quartet's a very hip group that's way hipper than its clunky name – with Gordon Beck on electric piano and organ, Daniel Humair on percussion and drums, and Henri Texier on bass, flute, and African percussion – all instrumentalists who dip heavily into the deep bag of their mighty talents for the date, helping to push Phil's music into some very cool new territory! The album cooks a lot harder than Woods' previous MGM date with the Rhythm Machine group in Europe – and has a really freewheeling vibe, and a sound that's almost outside at points. All tracks are long, with a modal electric approach that's very nice – and funky in the best parts – and titles include "Chromatic Banana", "Ultimate Choice", "The Last Page", and "The Day When The World".

VariousSouthern Funkin' – Louisiana Funk & Soul 1967 to 1979 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 24.99
Heavy heavy funk from the Louisiana scene of the late 60s and 1970s – and a great collection that really gets past the dominance of the New Orleans sound! The set moves way past the Crescent City to uncover a wealth of great bits recorded in smaller studios located in Shreveport, Lake Charles, and a variety of tiny scenes in the southwest side of Louisiana – and the result is a great batch of tunes with a really gritty, down-n-dirty sound! There's a wealth of great funky styles in the set – including James Brown-inspired jammers, southern soul burners, and some other great modes that show that Louisiana's got a heck of a lot more to offer than just New Orleans funk. Titles include work from the Anla, Murco, Soul International, Goldband, and Tic Toc labels – a total of 22 cuts that include "Soul Time" by Ernest Thomas, "Soul Feeling (parts 1 & 2)" by Eddy G Giles, "Soul Brothers Testify (part 1)" by Chester Randles Soul Senders, "Soul Power" by Abraham & The Casanovas, "Put It On" by Count Rockin Sidney with The Dukes, "Fix It" by Clifton White & His Royal Knights, "Miss Hard To Get" by Dennis Landry, "No Sad Times" by Johnny Truit, "Black Water Gold" by African Music Machine, and "I Got A Groove" by JJ Callier.

✨✧ Randy WestonFrom 52nd Street To Africa (Randy Weston Trio/Randy Weston Sextet) ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1958/1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two slices of work from Randy Weston – both of them great! The first half of the CD features a live appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1958 – one that has Randy on piano, working in a trio with George Joyner on bass and Gilbert Hoogan on drums. The tracks show the earliest modern ideas in Weston's music – and are similar to his key late 50s trio recordings for Riverside, but given the live setting, the tunes are a bit longer and more creative! Titles include "Hi Fly", "Bantu Suite", "Beef Blues Stew", and "Machine Blues". The second half of the CD features even rarer material from Weston's under-issued years of the mid 60s – just 3 long tracks that are all totally great! Randy's playing with a group that's similar in spirit to that used on the classic African Cookbook – Ray Copeland on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, Bill Wood on bass, Lennie McBrowne on drums, and Big Black on conga. The extended tracks start slow, but really open up – and are almost a blend of some of Weston's Africanist musings, and some of the more poetic modes expressed by Charles Mingus at the end of the 50s. Titles include "Blues For Strayhorn", "Sad Beauty Blues", and "Afro Blues". CD
