En VogueFunky Divas ... CD
Atlantic/East West, 1992. Used ... $2.99
Funky Divas is right – as this classic album by En Vogue is one that had the group really redefining the sound of girl group soul for a whole new generation! The girls do a wonderful job of blending together hip hop beats and warmer mainstream soul – at a level that marked one of the key bridges between R&B and hip hop in the 90s – almost making the group kind of a trans-generational healing force in African American music. After all these years the beats are still pretty great, and the vocals even better – and titles include "My Lovin (You're Never Gonna Get It)", "Free Your Mind", "Giving Him Something He Can Feel", "Give It UpTurn It Loose", "Hooked On Your Love", "Love Don't Love You", "This Is Your Life", "Desire", "Hip Hop Lover", and "It Ain't Over Till The Fat Lady Sings".

VariousGrandfather Paradox – Mixed by Henrik Schwarz/Ame/Dixon ... CD
BBE (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A far reaching mix of material put together by Henrik Schwarz/Ame/Dixon – from the minimalist electronic experimentalists, to hypnotic film score bits, to sparsely furnished house and club sounds of more recent years – a deeply diverse tapestry of beats and sounds from the past 50 years! The compilers do an impeccable job of programming the selections here to communicate just how deeply indebted modern club tracks are to the masters of avant garde minimalism – largely by working those kind of tunes into the tracklist – and it works way better than we thought after simply reading the selections! The 2CD version features a mixed set plus an unmixed disc much of the same material and some alternate titles. Titles include "Electric Counterpoint-Fast (Movement 3)" by Steve Reich & Pat Metheny, "Lock Groove (Out)" by Liquid Liquid, "Acid Beatless" by I:Cube, "Motor Bass Gets Phunked" by La Funk Mob, "The Three Faces Of Bala" by Yusef Lateef, "The President Is Gone" by John Carpenter, "Invocation" by Moondog, "Bass-Line Generator" by Raymond Scott, "Sunday Jam" by Can and more.

Handsome Boy Modeling SchoolWhite People (clean version) ... CD
Atlantic, 2004. Used ... $1.99
Just when you thought Prince Paul and Cat Power would never make a record together PRESTO – it's the new Handsome Boy album! HBMS takes a bit more of a chillout tack with this long overdue second opus – with lots of laidback beats and samples, and a surprising amount of live instrumentation! The gleeful, sarcastic comedy of the stellar first album remains intact, with some genuinely amusing skits (including one with Jay Z appearing under the pseudonym Hines Buchanan), and the deep range of guest vocalists isn't as surprising as how strong their work is in the best tunes. It would have been pretty easy for Prince Paul and Automator to find a bunch of interesting names to flesh out their big pop culture frappe, but something else altogether to make trippy hip hop tracks featuring Cat Power and the Hieroglyphics make sense on the same record. A pretty solid set from the most adventurous pseudo duo in the game! Guests include Del The Funky Homosapien, De La Soul, RZA, Lord Finesse, AG, Rahzel, Jazzy Jay, Qbert, Mike Patton, Casual, Hieroglyphics, Grand Wizard Theodore, El-P, John Oates, Pharrell, Kid Koala, and George W. Bush (just kidding). Tracks include "If It Wasn't For You" with De La, "Are You Down With It" with Mike Patton, "The World's Gone Mad" with Del and others, "It's Like That" with Casual, "I've Been Thinking" with Cat Power, "Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) Pt 2" featuring Lord Finesse, Qbert and others, First. . .And Then" featuring Dres from Black Ship, "A Day In The Life" featuring RZA, AZ and others and more, plus intro/outro by Father Guido Sarducci.

✨✧ Louis SmithHere Comes Louis Smith ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... $9.99
Trumpeter Louis Smith made only two records for Blue Note, but both of them are great! This set's arguably his most famous – because of a rare uncredited appearance by Cannonball Adderley, working here under the "nom de date" of "Buckshot La Funke" – and blowing with a power that beats most of his other Mercury sessions of the late 50s! But the real credit here should go to Louis Smith – who's got a sense of power and command that should have made him one of THE trumpeters of the 50s – an emerging young talent to stand alongside Lee Morgan, Nat Adderley, and other post-Fats Navarro/Clifford Brown talents on the instrument. Smith sparkles throughout with a mix of soul and modernism we really love – and an earthy way of blowing the horn that doesn't always reach its goals, but which draws even more energy from its ability to try! The rhythm section on the album's also very tight – with Art Taylor on drums, Doug Watkins on bass, and either Tommy Flanagan or Duke Jordan on piano – and tracks include "Ande", "Brill's Blues", "South Side", and "Val's Blues".
