✨✧ Dayme ArocenaCubafonia ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The deepest work we've heard so far from Dayme Arocena – a Cuban singer we first discovered in Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura project, but one who's really gone onto find her own strong musical paths in recent years! This set has Dayme working with Dexter Story on production – and the approach is maybe a bit more traditionally Latin than some of her earlier work, yet still infused with the soaring spirit that we love on the Brownswood label – with a vibe that's never too concerned about any sort of easy labels or boundaries, but also still respects a sense of tradition as well! The group's a large one, with lots of older Afro Cuban elements coming into play with Story's more spiritual leanings – and titles include "Negra Caridad", "Maybe Tomorrow", "Eleggua", "Todo Por Amor", "It's Not Gonna Be Forever", and "Mambo Na Ma".

Shabaka & The AncestorsWisdom Of Elders ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A fantastic jazz group from the contemporary South African scene – one who've got a very righteous vibe, and a sound that's maybe even more far-reaching than any jazz we've heard from that scene back in the 60s or 70s! The group's led by Shabaka Hutchings on tenor, but is a very collaborative ensemble – with these tremendous upfront vocals from Siyabonga Mthembu, a singer with a very unique approach, and a spiritual current that we'd rank right up there with work by Leon Thomas, Dwight Trible, or Joe Lee Wilson, even though Mthembu's very much his own man. The group's also got two other great horn players – Mthunzi Mvubu on alto and Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet – plus Fender Rhodes and piano from Nduduzo Makhathini, and a wonderfully early array of bass, percussion, and drums – which lay down a fantastic groundwork for each tune. The music starts somewhere in the spiritual territory of the post-Coltrane scene – but really takes off immediately with its own individual spirit – ala Kamasai Washington – and the performance is live and unadorned, without some of the studio efforts that show up on other Brownswood label releases. Beautiful work throughout – an instant classic that we'd rank right up there with the best material by folks like Nat Birchall or Matthew Hallsall, but very different too. Titles include "Nguni", "Mzwandile", "Joyous", "The Sea", "The Observer", and "Give Thanks". CD

VariousGilles Peterson Presents Havana Cultura – The Anthology ... CD
Brownswood (UK), Late 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 17.98
A fantastic overview of the wonderful sounds that Gilles Peterson has been cooking up in Havana since 2009 – the rich array of artists he's collaborated with as part of the bigger Havana Cultura project – which has given great exposure to a whole new generation of brilliant Cuban talents! The approach on many tracks echoes the vibe on Peterson's Brownswood label – a mixture of roots with more contemporary 21st soul touches – on sounds that do a lot to bring the Havana vibe into contact with the musical changes in soul around the world – but all without ever resorting to easy tricks or gimmicks, or dampening the spirit at the core at all. That careful balance has always been the key Peterson hallmark, and it's greatly appreciated here – on titles that include "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio, "Rezando" by Havana Cultura Band, "Traigo" by Seu Seppie, "Yambu (Daisuke Tanabe & Yoshi Horikawa rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "El Ruso" by Dayme Arocena, "En Lo Profundo" by Danay Suarez, "Ay" by Arema Arega, "La Rumba Experimental (Motor City Drum Ensemble rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra with Sexto Sentido, "Arroz Con Pollo" by Havana Cultura Band, "Calle F" by Mala, and "La Revolucion Del Cuerpo (part 1)" by Havana Cultura Band with Ogguere, Danay Suarez, and Obsesion.

✨✧ VariousHavana Cultura Mix – The Soundclash! ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2014. Used ... $6.99
A great mix of Cuban music and diversely danceable, percussive sounds from around the globe – on this excellent entry in the Brownswood label's and producer/tastemaker Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura series!

Includes "Ellegua" by Kerkstra feat Sexto Sentido, "Para Ti" by Rukaiya Russell feat Sexto Sentido, "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio feat Coki & Reni, "Ritmo Sensorial" by Rukaiya Russell feat Los Niches & Charly Mucha Rima, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra feat Etian Brebaje Man & Sexto Sentido, "Volar En Lo Profundo: by DJ Monokey feat Barbaro and more.

✨✧ Diggs DukeUpper Hand & Other Great Illusions (with bonus download) ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime soulful sounds from Diggs Duke – one of the freshest artists we've heard in years – and one of the few who really live up to the cosmic promise of the Brownswood label! Duke's got this way of singing, speaking, and playing Fender Rhodes with a really righteous sort of vibe – almost a modern day Weldon Irvine, but with an ear for heavier beats as well – and able to do more in this short EP than most artists can do in a full album! Titles include "The Pinnacle", "Secrets Seem Rehearsed", "Covered In Cloth", "Our Love Was Brand New", and "A Private Island". Why isn't this guy huge? LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus download too!)

William AdamsonUnder An East Coast Moon ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. Used ... $7.99
Almost an underground groove supergroup – given that the set features work from Earl Zinger (Rob Gallagher of Galliano) at the helm, production from 2 Banks Of 4, vocals from Valerie Etienne, and funky rhythms from Shawn Lee! The combination of talents come together here in a very new way – with a style that's much grittier and earlier than before, although still pretty darn groovy overall – almost putting a raspy old school touch on a scene that's definitely matured on its own, and may well be old enough to lay claim to the rootsy sound of this set! Rob's songwriting has definitely matured, and at some of the best moments, there's almost a British Tom Waits-y kind of quality to the set. Titles include "Below Sea Level", "Burial Blues", "Whip Of The Wind", "Laxfield Blasphemy", "Velvets Eleven", "Margaret Catchpole", and "Foggy Dew". CD
