✨✧ VariousCafe Apres Midi Marine ... CD
BMG (Japan), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of Brazilian groovers and 60s pop gems! This "marine" entry into the fab Japanese series called Cafe Apres-Midi is one of the best titles for bossa fans – as it's got some super-rare tracks from RCA Brazil, plus some great little groovers lifted from the US branches of the label, and a few of their European holdings of the past 30 years. The set's almost 80 minutes long – and it's got a total of 27 sparkling gems that you might have missed otherwise, including "The Minx" by The Cyrkle, "Do I Love You" by Salena Jones, "San Juan" by Claus Ogerman, "Deus Brasileiro" by Luiza, "Nothing But A Fool" by Oscar Brown Jr & Sivuca, "Blue Rondo A La Turk" by Quire, "BJ's Samba" by Barney Kessel, "Baby" by Quinteto Ternura, "There's Got To Be A Word" by The Innocence, "Mmm Nice" by Bob Thompson, "Finders Keepers" by Salt Water Taffy, "Without Her" by Nilsson, and "Conceicao Da Praia" by Antonio Carlos e Jocafi.

✨✧ Lester Bowie's Brass FantasyTwilight Dreams ... CD
Virgin/Katalyst, 1988. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A cooker of a record from Lester Bowie – one that takes the earlier sound of the Brass Fantasy ensemble, and focuses it into a mode that shows his growing love of soul and funk! The set was issued on the the short-lived Venture imprint of Virgin – a surprisingly strong outlook for creative projects like this – and the vibe's quite different than the Brass Fantasy records cut for ECM – with almost a bit more soul at the bottom, and a compact sort of energy that really sends the ideas home. Players include Bowie, Stanton Davis, Malachi Thompson, and Sasul Siddik on trumpets – plus Steve Turre and Frank Lacy on trombones, Vincent Chancey on French horn, Bob Stewart on tuba, and Phil Wilson on drums. Titles include a surprisingly great remake of "Thriller" – plus "Vibe Waltz", "I Am With You", "Duke's Fantasy", "Personality", and "Twilight Dreams". CD

BamboosMedicine Man ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2012. Used ... $7.99
A great step forward for The Bamboos – still as funky as ever, but in a much greater range of styles than before! The core deep funk sound we've always loved is still burning away at the bottom – thanks to the ever-trusty grooves of Lance Ferguson and crew – but this time around, there's also a host of guests who really seem to shape the overall feel of the record – Aloe Blacc, Megan Washington, Klye Auldist, Daniel Merriweather, Bobby Flynn, and Ella Thompson – each bringing in their own great flavors, and creating a depth of sound that's mighty nice! Most of these guests are vocalists, but their shifting styles seems to spur the instrumentation onto new heights too – adapting to suit the mood, yet never in a way that's too frenetic to keep the album from being unified overall. Titles include "Where Does The Time Go", "What I Know", "I Got Burned", "Cut Me Down", "Midnight", "Medicine Man", "Window", and "Hello Stranger". CD

Hubert EavesEsoteric Funk ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few albums we've ever seen by keyboardist Hubert Eaves – a great player whose work crops up on some of our favorite 70s soul jazz and jazz funk sides, but who rarely got a chance to lead his own group! Fortunately, he did get the chance to cut this one – as the session's a real doozy – sweet mellow fusion, handled very soulfully, with a kicked-back feel that's right up there with the most righteous soulful fusion of the time. Players include Mtume, John Lee, Reggie Lucas, Malachi Thompson, and Rene McLean – and Cheryl Alexander sings vocals on the track "Under Standing". A great blend of laidback funk and soulful grooves – in the manner of Bobby Lyle at his best – and titles include "Slow Down", "Painful Pleasure", "Call To Awareness", and "Flead Dancing". CD
