Orrin EvansEvolution Of Oneself ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
The title here is very apt – as Orrin Evans is a pianist who seems to be in a constant state of evolution these days – from his wonderful work on larger projects, to his completely sublime sounds in a trio like this! Evans' notes seem even more fluid and cascading than ever – set up beautifully here alongside Christian McBride on bass and Karriem Riggins on drums – in a trio mode that breaks down most previous expectations of a group like this – with this magical dance between rhythm and melody, and a really three-cornered approach to the groove – but one that's clearly inspired by Evans' fantastic work as a leader. There's a bit of added instrumentation from Marvin Sewell on guitar on two tracks, and JD Walter sings on the album's final number – and titles include "For Miles", "Sweet Sid", "Wildwood Flower", "Iz Beatdown Time", "Feb 13th", "Spot It You Got It", and "Ruby Red".

✨✧ Ultramagnetic MCsFunk Your Head Up ... CD
Mercury, 1992. Used ... $11.99
Follow up to Critical Beatdown with solid, funky production by Ced Gee and Moe Love, and Kool Keith just being Kool Keith – giving it some crazy charm that a lot people just weren't ready for at the time! Their first major label record, which seemed to take forever to come out, we recall a lot of folks being disappointed with this at the time – but there's ultimately a lot of quality cuts here! "Poppa Large", "Chorus Line Pt. 2", "Make It Happen" were favorite cuts from the outset, and with the benefit of hindsight and without burden of expections, other great ones include "Funk Radio", "Stop Jockin Me", "Bust The Facts" and "I Like Your Style" with many other standout moments. It's got a whopping 23 in all, and other tracks include "MC Champion", "Go For Yourz", "Message From The Boss", "Pluckin Cards", "You Ain't Real", "Moe Love On The ! & 2" and "Porno Star". CD
