✨✧ VariousRich Medina Presents Jump N Funk ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 70s/Late 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest projects we've heard from Rich Medina in years – a killer compilation that brings together older Afro Funk tracks from the 70s with a big amount of cuts from more contemporary years – all with a blend that pushes the spirit of the continent way out into the cosmos! Medina's always been one of the most forward-thinking artists in the underground – and you can definitely hear that quality in this set – as Rich effortlessly steps back and forth in space and time, to create a unified sound that bristles with electricity, while still reveling in all the key acoustic elements from the 70s. Titles include "For The People" by Aquil, "Bango Fields" by Kutiman, "For Real (2011 edition Atjazz rmx)" by Atjazz, Olodumare" by Wale Oyejide, "Bushman" by Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble, "Stalemate" by Fela & The Afrika 70, "Jungle Beat (Mutaba)" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Melody Maestroes, "Soul Makossa" by Original Nairobi Afro Band, "Why Can't We Live Together (Sao Benitez BV dub)" by River Oceaon, and "Na Oil" by Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80.

Sadar Bahar & Ben SpaanderBen & Sadar's – Red, White & Blues EP ... 12-inch
BBE (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
A great collaboration between Chicago DJ Sadar Behar and Dutch keyboard talent Ben Spaander! Spaander's got a huge collection of vintage keyboards – and Sadar works with him here to craft some really vintage-sounding grooves, but with a definite future soul vibe overall! There's certainly some elements of older Chicago and Detroit house styles in the mix – but the overall presentation is very strongly fleshed-out too – not retro-synth for its own sake, played slavishly – but instead set free on some new grooves and unusual rhythms, and inflected differently on each new track. Titles include "Binaries In Love", "East River Throwdown", "Electronic Frequencies", and "Fast Trumpet". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ted ColemanTaking Care Of Business ... LP
Colthe Music/BBE (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 26.98
A jazzy combo with plenty of soul – working here with plenty of fusion undercurrents, but in a way that's tied together with some really great vocals on the top! The style's a bit like that of James Mason on his legendary Rhythm Of Life LP – soaring, righteous, and with some slightly cosmic elements – especially in the way the guitar, keyboards, and vibes come together with an upbeat sort of groove! Ted sings, plays piano and vibes, and wrote all the tunes for the set – and the album's a beautiful lost treasure that has plenty of greatness to offer – echoes of Bobby Hutcherson, Roy Ayers, and others – in addition to James Mason – but also a richly personal vibe that's all its own. Titles include "Sweet Bird", "Samba De", "Can You Feel It", "Due Consideration", "If We Took The Time", and "What A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening". LP, Vinyl record album

KonKon & The Gang ... LP
BBE (UK), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 27.99
A heady set of grooves from Kon – part of the Kon & Amir team you'll know from the famous series of compilations and mix tapes (both On and Off Track!) – stepping out here as a fantastically strong lead artist of his own, with help from a few key guests as well! The set's both a showcase for Kon's own music, and his ability to handle the grooves of others – sometimes with extra mixing skill, sometimes just through his own ability to reach out and bring great sounds together – as he did with his previous collections! The vibe here is a soulful take on club – very much in the spirit of the title and logo, which pay homage to Kool & The Gang – but given a contemporary vibe, in a way that's a nice update of the spirit of the classic cuts that Kon chose for the Off Track series on BBE. Titles include "Can't Get Enough" and "Awe Baby (Medlar rmx)" by Kon, plus "I Promise (Kon rework)" by Doc Daneeka feat Seven Davis Jr, "Do It Well" by Serge Gamesbourg, "Out Of My Head" by Bosq, "Hooked On Ya" by Caserta, "Back 2 Luv" by Eli Escobar feat Steven Klavier, and "I Like To Feel Your Eyes On Me When I Look Away" by Scott Thatmanmonkz featuring J Gordon.

James L'Estraunge OrchestraCloser/Groovin' You ... 12-inch
BBE (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
"Closer" is a fantastic groove – wickedly jazzy, and filled with lots of Fender Rhodes and strings – soaring to the skies on a slightly broken rhythm that almost recalls the best London work of a decade before! Yet there's also a stronger soul vibe here too – thanks to the vocals from Ricky Reid, who really seems to be emerging as a major talent in the more righteous side of the spectrum! "Groovin You" is equally jazzy – with a fantastic bassline that bumps and dips over snapping snare drums – topped with some strong solos on tenor, flute, and trumpet! A beautiful track – like some lost jazz dance number from the 70s, but with a more modern sense of rhythm. 12-inch, Vinyl record

James L'Estraunge OrchestraEventual Reality ... CD
BBE (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $16.99 19.98
A fantastic debut from the James L'Estraunge Orchestra – a studio combo, but one who come together with this amazing mix of groove and sophisticated arrangements! The project is the brainchild of Ricky Reid – who you might know in his work with The Soul Renegades – and there's a richness to the album that takes us back to some of the first wave of really complicated, really beautiful sounds from the London scene years back – maybe like the music of Chris Bowden or Jessica Lauren, with just a trace of 4Hero in the way that Reid blends together fuller strings and horns with some tight rhythms at the core. There's plenty of great keyboards on the album – including some Fender Rhodes from Ricky – but the album's hardly just the usual beats-and-keys session, as there's a complex vision here that's way more than just dancefloor music. Yet there's also plenty of grooves – just served up with a depth that makes the album appealing in so many other ways too – on tracks that include "The Call", "Closer", "We Rise", "Me & The Bear", "Eventual Reality", "See You Tonight", "Autumn Falls", and "It Happened Before".

Bert MyrickLive N'Well ... CD
Strata/BBE (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A fantastic lost set from the Detroit jazz scene of the 60s – by a group who was years ahead of their time, and who bridged a number of different parts of the city's scene! The group's listed here under the name of drummer Bert Myrick, but was actually co-led by George Bohanon on trombone – who also blew on sides for Motown, and went onto a big range of west coast work in the 70s – but has a razor-sharp edge here! The other co-leader was tenorist Ronnie Fields – a lesser-known player, but a great one too – and a perfect pairing with Bohanon for a soaring, soulful voice on the record. A young Kenny Cox is also in the group on piano – best known for his later albums for Blue Note, which were some of the most modern the label issued at the time – and the last member of the group is Will Austin on bass. Myrick's drums are great – as powerful a force in leadership as Art Blakey with the Messengers – and all tracks are nice and long, and all originals too. The groove is soaring, modal, and very soulful – and titles include "Sevenths", "Paramour", "Scorpio's Child", and "The Latin Bit". CD

Rim Kwaku Obeng & The BelieversToo Tough/I'm Not Going To Let You ... CD
Sum Sum/BBE (UK), 1983. Used ... $8.99
Wonderfully groovy work from Rim Kwaku Obeng – an artist with African roots, but working here in the San Francisco scene of the early 80s – where he's clearly picked up a very international vibe in his music! Rim definitely plays some traditional percussion on the tracks, but there's also a more contemporary funky club approach too – a mixing of modes that's totally great, and which almost represents an 80s step forward for the already-great Bay Area soul vibe of the 70s! The first half of the set features material from the Too Tough EP – which has very cool female vocals, both a lead and a chorus – the latter of whom move around with the rhythms in this totally great way that almost feels like some New York cuts from the Danceteria generation. The second half of the set loses the female singers, but is still every bit as wonderful as the first – with these long grooves from Rim & The Believers that have the percussion, basslines, and guitars criss-crossing in even more amazing ways. Titles include "Shine The Ladies", "Love Me For Real", "I'm Not Going To Let You", "Peace Of Mind", and "I'm A Song Writer". CD

Orchestra SoledadVamonos/Let's Go ... LP
Futuro/BBE (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
Raw salsa from the streets of Brooklyn – served up here by a very obscure group, but one who work in the best styles of the Fania and Cotique Records scenes of the time! There's a strong Puerto Rican influence on the rhythms at times – very much that new spirit that was emerging with pride and power as the 70s moved in – but there's also some trailing currents of the Latin Soul generation, in the way that Cotique was working at the time – particularly on records by Joey Pastrana! Lyrics are in English on some tracks, and mighty darn soulful – and the group's led by Hector Ramos, who both sings and plays some massive trombone! Titles include "I'll Make You A Queen", "Vamanos/Let's Go", "Uptight", "Just Like A Fool", "Problems", "Cuero", and "Candela". LP, Vinyl record album

Eji OyewaleCharity Begins At Home (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/BBE (UK), Late 70s. Sealed ... $14.99
No charity needed here – as reedman Eji Oyewole's got a wealth of talent on his own! Eji's a musician with roots in the 60s Nigerian scene, but left to follow a personal path through Europe and the US, where he picked up some wonderfully funky styles which are then brought home to create this completely cooking late 70s album! The style's different than other big Afro Funk names of the time – like Fela Kuti or Manu Dibango – but shares a similar sense of flowing, open grooves – and Eji's ability to act strongly as both a lead vocalist, and a soaring soloist on tenor, soprano, and flute! Rhythms are damn funky at the core – with almost a blacksploitation vibe at times – and the tracks are all quite long, with most of the real "voice" coming from the saxes, which speak volumes on their solos. Titles include "Gele Odun (Oil Boom)", "Lagos Complex Highways", "Unity In Africa", and "Charity Begins At Home". LP, Vinyl record album

PazPaz Are Back ... LP
Spotlite/BBE (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Fantastic funky fusion from the UK – served up here by a group of artists with roots that go back to the jazz rock and avant jazz scenes – but who work here with a lean, spacey, electric style that fits in more sharply with the generation of Herbie Hancock and George Duke! The keyboards are great – played by Geoff Castle on both acoustic and electric piano – and the group also features fantastic reeds from Ray Warleigh, a player who really seems to be reemerging here with a new sort of brilliance – as he blows deft lines on alto, soprano sax, and flute. The group also features Ron Mathewson on bass, Ed Speight on guitar, and a fair bit of percussion at the core, which gives some of the tunes a Latin or Brazilian fusion vibe – and titles include "Laying Eggs", "AC/DC", "Horros", "Moonchild", "I Can't REmember", "Everywhere Calypso", and "Iron Works".

People's WorkshopHouston Talent Expo 1982 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BBE (UK), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 26.99
The cover might look a bit understated, but the album's got plenty of depth and power – a rare set from the Texas underground of the early 80s – cut by a group who've clearly drunk deep from the same musical well that inspired Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers, and other cosmic soul talents of the 70s! As with Stevie and Roy, there's plenty of jazzy currents in the music of The People's Workshop – warm keyboards, sweet sax and flute, and waves of color that really come through the grooves and illuminate the deeper spirit of the vocals. There's a sense of collaboration here that's really special – almost a James Mason vibe at times – all with a sense of sophistication that's quite different than the rootsier sounds you might normally expect from Texas soul groups. Titles include "Save Your Money", "A Song For The Children", "Love Love", "Let's Get High", "Chocolate Coated People Song", and "This Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Pete RockPetestrumentals ... LP
BBE (UK), 2001. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
A mad bit of funk from the great Pete Rock! Pete's easily one of the best hip hop producers of the past decade – and this album's a sublime batch of instrumental tracks that focuses on his talent for remaking an older groove. The set's one of the first on BBE's groundbreaking Beat Generation label – and it's an important blend of downtempo grooves, hip hop, and classic styles of funk! A great listen all the way through – with 16 tracks on this revised edition: "A Little Soul", "Play Dis Only At Night", "For The People", "The Boss", "Pete's Jazz", "Smooth Sailing", "Something Funky", "Get Involved", "Walk On By", "Take The D Train", "To My Advantage" featuring Nature, "Back On The Block"" featuring CL Smooth, "Nothin Lesser" and "Cake" featuring the UN , "Mind Frame" featuring Freddie Foxx and the "Outro".

Pete Rock feat Dead PrezWarzone (dirty, clean, inst, alt dirty, alt clean, alt inst, acapella dirty) ... 12-inch
BBE (UK), 2004. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $4.99
A grimy bouncer from Pete Rock and Dead Prez! Pete Rock lays down some dirty piano loop, heavy drum funk on this track – with this terse, violin and string loop on the hook that kinda bumps this thing like the Psycho soundtrack has gone hip hop! Dead Prez leaves the revolutionary politicin' on the floor for some dizzying thug paranoia, wack mack club observations and ghetto commentary – equating the club scene with a war zone. Amazingly, the track STILL somehow manages to hold water as a genuine club banger. A hot one – and a very promising teaser for the Soul Survivor II album! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sun PalaceRude Movements ... CD
BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99 19.98
The first-ever full length collection of work from Sun Palace – the enigmatic duo who cut some great underground club work on the early 80s New York scene! The set's broken into two halves – titled "Raw Movements" and "Rude Movements", after the famous instrumental singles – which are both featured here, along with lots of other incredible 80s material that really fleshes out the groove! Most tracks feature some kind of wickedly weird guitar line from Mike Collins, and lots of cool keyboards from Keith O'Connell – all in modes that are as spare as some of the earliest house music, but with rhythms that are much more in an NYC electro mode! There's a lot of unreleased tracks here from those days – including a few that were just finished up for this set – and titles include "Raw Movements", "Love Train II", "Palace Strut", "Coral Reef", "Street Beat", "What's The Time", "Rude Movements (remaster)", "Movement 1 (winning)", "Movement 2 (reconstruction)", and "Movement 3 (completion)".

BBE (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 x 7" (pic cover)... $24.99 26.98
A treasure trove of deep soul, Northern groovers, and funky numbers from the mighty Jean Wells – easily one of the most accomplished soul singers of her time! Jean's got a voice that knocks it right out of the park, right away – a style that burns deeply on the mellow cuts, and soars to the heavens on the groovers – and she works here with impeccable production from Clyde Otis, who always seems to know just the right way to bring out the best in a singer like Wells. But even more notable is the fact that Jean wrote a good number of tunes here herself – quite unusual for a female soul singer of her generation – and an aspect that makes the collection especially noteworthy as a documents of the deep talents shown by Wells while recording these sides for the Calla label. This limited edition triple 7" single package is mighty great – with a slipcover that contains notes on the music, and a total of 6 tracks that include "What Have I Got To Lose", "Have A Little Mercy", "With My Love & What You've Got", "Take Time To Make Time For Me", "He Ain't Doing Bad", and "Somebody's Been Loving You". 7-inch, Vinyl record

20 years of inventive, profoundly soul and funk infused, floor shaking dance music from Henry Street Music – given a top shelf anniversary showcase in conjunction with BBE! Since first breaking ground in the mid 90s, Henry Street has been there for some of best dancefloor guru's of their day, including Todd Terry, DJ Duke, Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, Kenny Dope, and Johnick to name but a few – with classic house rooted, but future ready grooves that stand the test the test of time. These tracks will continue to rock dancefloors until the end of days! This epic 5CD set has more than 6 hours of music – with "The Bomb" (Kenny Dope Presents The Bucketheads 2), "The Funk Phenomena" (Armand Van Heldon Presents Old School Junkies), "Play The World by Jonick, "Snow Me The Way" (DK Sneak Presents The Polyester EP), "Walk 4 Me" (Robbie Tronco Presents Tronco Traxx), "Feelin' It (Rhythm Section Main Mix)" by Groove Culture feat Arnold Jarvis, "Feel The Thunder (Tommy Musto Mix)" by Stron Jay, "Byrdman's Revenge" (Mike Delgado PresentsThe Upstairs Lounge), "Like That" (Mike Rizzo Presents Tiger Blood, "Steal Your Love" by BQE and "D2-D2 (Timmy Register Shelter Mix)" by DJ Duke/Roland Clark and many, many more by E-Smoove, Ray Roc, Norty Cotto, Ralphi Rosario, Dirty Harry and others.

VariousAfrobeat Brasil ... LP
BBE (UK), 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 28.99
A killer collection of contemporary Afro Funk work – but all served up from quite a surprising source! The music here is all from Brazil, but also continues that nation's long tradition of sharing roots and culture with the continent across the Atlantic – a legacy that's sometimes been subtle, especially as sounds get localized – but which bursts out here with a renewed sense of pride and power! The style on many cuts is nicely different than some of the too-slavish Afro combos from up north – as these musicians aren't afraid to make their own shifts in sound, and leave their own mark on the music – so that much of the cuts feel more like a fusion between rootsier traditions from both sides of the ocean, often given a funky and jazzy spin. Titles include "Afoxe" by Camarao Orchestra, "Etiopia" by Thiago Franca, "Musico" by Lucas Santtana, "Democracia" by Otto Nasca, "Farofa De Banana" by Trabalhos Espaciais Manuais, "Wababa" by Andre Sampaiao & Os Afromandinga, "Logun" by Meta Meta, "Origem" by Andre Abujamra, and "Bass Do Tambo" by BNegao & Os Seletores De Frequencia.

VariousBest Of Disco Spectrum – Presented By Joey Negro & Sean P ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 15.99
A fantastic tribute to the legendary Disco Spectrum series of compilations – a run of records that first burst forth at the end of the 90s, and showed the world that there was a huge amount of underground music to discover from the mainstream disco years! Disco Spectrum cuts aren't the ones you'll know from Saturday Night Fever – or from K-Tel compilations of the time – and instead, they represent the much deeper current of groove that was still burning bright away from the limelight, even while the more commercial disco crumbled into dust – music that was sometimes cut by artists who disappeared quickly, sometimes by older masters, and sometimes by talents who never fully got the respect they deserved. Both Joey Negro and Sean P have given us some great sets before, but this one is right at the top of their talents – filled with gems that include "Let Me Down Easy" by Rare Pleasure, "Spread Love" by Al Hudson & The Soul Partners, "Can't Shake Your Love (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Syreeta, "Trinidad (special disco mix)" by John Gibbs & US Steel Orchestra, "Isabelle & The Rain" by Jo Boyer, "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By (club 12" mix)" by Cloud One with Margo Williams, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "I Don't Want You Back" by Ramona Brooks, "Hot To Trot" by Alfredo De La Fe, "Out Of My Hands" by Omni, "Under The Skin" by The Brothers, "Let Me Love You" by Bunny Mack, "Can You Get Down" by Universe City, and "I Want You For Myself" by George Duke with Lynn Davis.

Funky disco and rare soul compiled by Al Kent – Disco Love 2 on BBE – once again going a lot deeper into the soulful underground of the late 70s and coming back up with some incredibly fresh rarities! Al Kent hails from Glasgow, but we honestly couldn't tell you where most of the singers and groups on the set are from – but we can tell you it's a great batch of underground tunes, some soaring and straight up disco, others with a more thumping, rawer or funkier groove – all of it perfectly pitched to the dancefloor. Includes "Joey's Tune" by Plazza Suite", "I Think I'll Do Some Stepping On My Own" by Sandy Barber, "I've Got The Need" by Spooky & Sue, "I Can Make It On My Own" by Vessie Simmons, "Make Love To You" by Scarbrough, "When Did You Stop" by The J's and more. 8 long unmixed numbers on the 2LP version.

✨✧ Pete Rock & INICenter Of Attention – Hip Hop Underground Soul Classics ... LP
Vinyl Digital, Mid 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 29.98
A once lost relic from hip hop's golden mid 90s era! This is the second of two albums from Pete Rock's archives of great unissue material to originally see release thanks to the knowledgeable crate diggers at BBE/Rapster, recorded during the period Pete Rock & CL Smooth were nearing the end of their contract with Elektra. Pete started putting together some side projects and a healthy archive of top notch productions featuring young & hungry MCs, some of which remained under wraps for years, and achieved legendary status. Of course this set's built on the staple Soul Brother #1 sound: rich and heavy with dense bass, propulsive beats, strong jazz and soul samples, and a tight over all sound, but the INI MC's are no slouch on the mic either, leaving us wonder why this only saw the light of day as a handful of promo singles. Rob O and Grap Luva handle the rhymes on the set with guest appearances by Q-Tip and Large Professor on "To Each His Own". 16 tracks in all, including the intro: "No More Words", "Step Up", "Think Twice", "Square One", "The Life I Live", "Krossroads", "Fakin' Jax", "What You Say", "Mind Over Matter", "Don't You Love It", "Microphone Wanderlust" and more!

An incredible batch of soulful disco – a set curated by legendary DJs/groove junkies Joey Negro and Sean P! Joey and Sean previously served as the architects of BBE's stellar Disco Spectrum series – and they've brought their A-game over to Z Records from what we can only hope will be another long-living series! The set skews to the obscure numbers – applying the disco tag liberally, really focusing on tight, punchy string-laden soul numbers – mostly from the tail end of the 70s and even spilling into the early 80s for a few numbers! It's that incredible period with Curtom and Stax influenced soul, funky drums and percussion, groovy early fusion, first school hip hop and the deeper dance music of the era melded into pure magic! Titles include "Gotta Keep On Trying (Joey Negro re-edit)" by Tenderness, "The Fox (Joey Negro re-edit) " by Disco Fox, "Happy" by Sandi Havens, "Love Message" by Sargeant & Malone, "That's Hot (Joey Negro re-edit)" by Jesse G, "Party Hardy (Joey Negro re-edit)" by Velvet Hammer, "Closer To The Feeling" by Zebra, "Jealousy" by Natural Order, "We Have All the Time" by Milton Hamilton, and "Trying To Get Over" by The Sparkles.

An incredible document of racial inequality in mid-Century America – a 3CD set that brings together blues, jazz, soul, and music in other styles – all to illustrate the lack of opportunity and freedom for African-Americans in the US! You've no doubt heard some of these songs before – classic blues numbers, or important jazz vocal tracks – but together, they deliver a hell of a lot more power than on their own – a total of 60 songs that underscore the long, hard journey towards Civil Rights – a path that's still not finished even all these many years later, which makes the theme of these songs still so important. The work spans the teens through the sixties – and titles include "Jim Crow" by The Union Boys, "Parchman Farm Blues" by Bukka White, "Minstrel & The Queen" by The Impressions, "We Shall Overcome" by Guy Carawan, "Working Man" by Bo Diddley, "Better Git It In Your Soul" by Charles Mingus, "The Alabama Bus (parts 1 & 2)" by Brother Will Hairston, "Jim Crow Train" by Johs White, "Brown Skin Girl" by Lloyd Prince Thomas, "Hard Road Blues" by Floyd Dixon, "High Society" by Monk Hazel, "The American Woman & The West Indian Man" by Sam Manning, "Ethiopia Shall Stretch Forth Her Hands Onto God" by Marcus Garvey, "Low Society" by Ray Charles, "Kiyakiya" by Babatunde Olatunji, "Ancient Aethiopia" by Sun Ra, "Tarzan Of Harlem" by Cab Calloway, "Old Alabama" by BBE, and "Chicago High Life" by Earl Hines.

Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King".

Bootsy's Rubber BandStretchin' Out In Bootsy's Rubber Band (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Bootsy Collins' first solo album as a leader – and a masterpiece of slow bassy funk that set the tone for countless other groups to come! Bootsy steps into the spotlight with a tremendous amount of confidence and personality on the record – emerging as the one real star that could shine brightly on its own in the P-Funk galaxy – oozing personality, sexuality, and super-funky grooves throughout! George Clinton's helping Bootsy out on production a bit, and the rest of the P-Funk regulars are in the group as well – but the album's clearly Bootsy's own, and takes mainstream funk into a whole new sound – one that would really set a high bar for much of the west coast scene in years to come! Includes the massive "I'd Rather Be With You" – plus "Physical Love", "Love Vibes", and "Psychoticbumpschool". LP, Vinyl record album

Marc CaryFor The Love Of Abbey ... CD
Motema, 2013. Used ... $4.99
A beautiful tribute to the late, great Abbey Lincoln – served up on a host of solo piano performances by Marc Cary – mostly of tunes penned by Lincoln herself, but also featuring a few originals as well! There's a rich, vibrant feel to the record – a quality that strikes us stronger than any other Cary recording we've heard in recent years, even though Marc's on his own here – really reaching out on the keys of the piano, with a command we never would have expected – stretching over space and tone with a sort of majesty to rival Mal Waldron or McCoy Tyner – yet also keeping things deeply personal as well. Titles include "Melancholia", "Down Here Below", "Music Is The Magic", "Love Evolves", "Down Here Below The Horizon", "Transmute", "Throw It Away", and "Who Used To Dance". CD

Joe CubaEl Pirata Del Caribe – The Caribbean Pirate ... LP
Tico, 1979. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A later album by Joe – but a really great one! Joe's moved from a Latin soul groove into one that's beautifully strident and jazzy – with the kind of solos and tight rhythms that made him a legend, updated to reflect some of the NuYorican changes going on around him. There's some excellent vibes work on here, especially on the cuts "Y Joe Cuba Ya Llego" and "Bertos Madness", which is a very cool hard groover! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

Lennie HibbertMoonlight Party ... CD
Beach/Dub Store (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Sweet jazzy instrumentals from Jamaica – mellow, moonlight numbers by vibes player Lennie Hibbert and an amazing group of Carribbean players – coming together beautifully on one of his earliest records as a leader! Coming in the early 60s, there's a wonderful Afro-Carribbean jazzy soul vibe at play here – with Hibbert's vibes front and center, with bongos and drums that presage the roots sound to come, some sweet flute, sax and clarinet. The record's also a key early example of a Jamaican scene that was still finding its roots – borrowing strongly from the US scene, but in the best way possible! There's some Latin currents at times – and with Hibbert's strong vibes, the record almost feels like some of the Bobby Montez sessions from the same period. Mostly instrumental, though with a lovely little bit of female vocals – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Moonglow & Picnic", "I Love Paris", "Estrelita", "Strolling", "Let True Love Begin", "El Lobo", "Jamaica Farewell", "Home Sweet Home", and "Island In The Sun".

Also available Moonlight Party ... LP 21.99
