Bobbi HumphreyFreestyle ... LP
Epic, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Some of Bobbi Humphrey's greatest work of the post-Blue Note years – an album that's filled with soulful fusion tunes throughout, all with a great focus on her funky flute! Bobbi also sings a bit on the set, but in a way that's pretty darn great – wonderfully sweet at times, with a bit of an influence from Minnie Riperton that really warms up the set. Arrangements are by Cleveland Eaton, with a bit of help from Art Jenkins – and production is by Ralph MacDonald, who clearly has a great ear for the blend of jazz and soul that Bobbi's going for on the set. And although Larry Mizell's not on board, some of the cuts here still have that stepping/sliding sort of groove from Bobby's Mizell-produced Blue Note years – a really wonderful sound that's a perfect showcase for her uniquely jazzy talents on the flute! Tracks include "Freestyle", "Home Made Jam", "Sunset Burgundy", "Good Times", "My Destiny", "I Could Love You More", and "If You Want It". LP, Vinyl record album

Carleen AndersonCage Street Memorial – The Pilgrimage ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
The legendary Carleen Anderson goes back to her roots – in a special album dedicated to that time when she was growing up in the household of Vicki Anderson and Bobby Byrd – two of the hippest singers to ever work with James Brown! Carleen's got a great legacy of her own – almost 30 years of recording, both as a solo act and a member of Young Disciples – but this set kind of leapfrogs backward over those years, and touches on some of the spiritual sounds that Vicki was doing in her youth, and the Cage Street setting in Houston in which she grew up. The record is easily Carleen's most ambitious – and was co-created with Orphy Robinson, who plays vibes throughout, and directs the group – on songs that are surprisingly lofty, compared to some of Anderson's earlier records. There's almost a more serious, intense sound to the record at times, mixed with straighter jazz vocal moments at others – and titles include "Your Heart Will Know", "Upwards From The Ground", "Deliverance", "Begin Again", "Be No Puppet", and "Pond Crossing".

ApplesApples Present – Kings ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2010. Used ... $5.99
The Apples present a pair of Kings – a nice little project the finds the nine piece collective in collaboration with masters of their styles – funk pioneer Fred Wesley on a quartet of tracks and Israeli percussion titan Schlomo Bar on 4 others! The Apples are such a stylistically sprawling, capable combo that the overall feel is quite cohesive and always funky – with Mr Wesley's trombone prominent and the classic funk styled "Howling With Fred", "In The Air", "Alright" and "Kings" – and Middle Eastern funk on featuring Schlomo Bar and the addition of oud player "Ilan Ban-Ami" on remaining tracks "Batash (Alwoojdi)", "Ani, Ata Wehoo", "Walking To The Palace" and "Banana Jam" (the latter sans oud).

Brian AugerBack To The Beginning Again – A Brian Auger Anthology Vol 2 ... CD
Freestyle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
A totally wonderful collection – even better than the first volume, and filled with rare and unusual work from this legendary British keyboardist! The set features loads of gems from Brian's early years – some mod piano rompers and heavy Hammond groovers – showing a very strong tie to the soul jazz sound of the early 60s, which then transforms into some excellent 70s groovers as the set moves in – work that's every bit as tremendous as the tunes that start out the set. Even if you've got some of Auger's albums in your collection, there's way more to discover here – and the set has a brilliant focus on the deepest, most soulful side of his music! Titles include "In & Out", "Love For Sale", "Pavane", "Maiden Voyage", "Black Octopus", "Ella", "Inner City Blues", "Brain Damage", "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend", "Funky Mama", "Moanin", "Straight Ahead", "Work Song", "Poinciana", and "Lament For Miss Baker". Even features notes on the music by Auger himself! CD

Kylie AuldistFamily Tree ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
A sweet change in sound from Kylie Auldist – an artist we know mostly for deep funk work with The Bamboos on backup – but who steps out here in a style that's got much more of an 80s soul vibe overall! The arrangements are full, funky, and beautifully suited to Kylie's voice – pushing her even more out front than before, with this soaring sort of energy that reminds us a lot of the first few solo albums that Chaka Kahn cut with Arif Mardin – stepping out on her own away from Rufus! The vibe here with Auldist is similar – proud, positive, and very much her own woman – answering to no one as she blows us away even more than before. Titles include "Sensational", "Too Easy", "Saturday Night", "No Change", "Warming Up The Sun", "Look Away", "Rewards", and "Good Time Girl". CD

Manuel Azevedo Quartet/EsperantoFutebol De Bar/Latin Strut – Black Feeling 3 Sampler ... 7-inch
Freestyle (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
Two great grooves that mix together Latin and funk! Manuel Azevedo kicks things off with the beautiful "Futebol De Bar" – a cut that has batucada drums at the start, then leaps into these vibrant piano parts that dance and fly around the grooves in a wonderful way – with a nice break for some soaring strings in the middle, then back to more piano and rhythm! "Latin Strut" is a remake of the Deodato classic – done here with the same funky Latin vibe that Joe Bataan brought to his cover from years back, but with maybe even moodier keyboards overall! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cookin On 3 BurnersBlind Bet ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $8.99
This fierce funky trio just gets better and better with each new record – to the point where we'd be hard-pressed to think of any better combination of funky drums, guitar, and Hammond! The core rhythms are sublime – in a Meters-esque territory, but even sharper, given the group's love for a classic drum break – which makes just about every tune here crackle with raw funky energy! In fact, we love this core trio sound so much, we dig the instrumental tracks on the album the most – about half the set – because those really have the trio at their hardest, even when extra horns or strings come into the mix. Instrumental tracks include "The Spanish Job", "Blind Bet", "Skeletor", and "The Vanished" – and singers Kylie Auldist, Jason Heerah, Tex Perkins, and Daniel Merriweather sing on tracks that include "Flat On My Back", "Losin Streak", "You Got The Better Of Me", "Chew You Up", and "Last Man Standing".

Deep Street SoulCome Alive ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
Deep Street Soul are deeper than ever here – coming across with full-on, nonstop funky action – right from the very first drum breaks that start out the record! The set's got the group moving with incredible tightness – a razor-sharp instrumental core to beat the rest of the deep funk competition – topped on most cuts by vocals from May Johnson, who's easily one of the most unbridled singers we've heard working with a group like this! Some cuts have nicely noisy electric piano (Wurlitzer?) – which gives these guys a different core than some of the more Hammond-heavy groups – and the record also features guest vocals from Kylie Auldist and Joshua Taveres – but honestly, we like May's vocals the best! Titles include "Out Of The Gates", "Little Ray", "Done Me Wrong", "Big C", "Deux Freres", "The Hardest Part Is Knowing", "Love On Tap", and "Sweet Sugar Man". CD

✨✧ OmarLove In Beats ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Omar's been blowing our minds for years now – turning out some of the freshest soul music on the global scene – from his tremendous debut at the start of the 90s, to a range of crucially-overlooked albums that should have made the singer huge! The man's a hell of a singer, and a really great songwriter – easily a modern-day Stevie Wonder, right down to his skills on the keyboards and cosmic sense of soul! This album's got Omar sounding especially wonderful – working with a few key guests, like Robert Glasper, Leon Ware, Natasha Watts, and The Floacist – but reminding us again that it's the man at the core who makes all the music so great – as the guests appear only as key added elements, but the Omar sound is more than enough to make the record great. Titles include "Vicky's Tune", "Feeds My Mind", "Insatiable", "Gave My Heart", "Girl Talk", "I Want It To Be", "Hold Me Closer", "This Way That Way", "Destiny", and "Doobie Doobie Doo". CD

VariousCraig Charles Funk & Soul Club 4 ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
UK DJ Craig Charles is looking a bit more disco than usual on the cover here – and maybe sounding a bit more on the music, as well – although the set's still pretty darn funky overall, and definitely lives up to the solid soul of other great volumes in this series! Through his work at the BBC, Charles has become one of the key supporters of the funky underground around the globe – and he's got a great ear for picking the best tracks from contemporary groups, and mixing them with key tracks from way back – which he does wonderfully on this set! The package features 19 tracks in all – some we might have missed otherwise, and all of which really sound great together in this array. Titles include "Hey Mister" by The Fantastics, "Reach Out" by Flevans, "You Could've Been A Lady" by Smoove & Turrell, "Beef Frinder" by Lexoul Dancemachine, "White Lines" by The Traffic, "The Rain" by Lisa Stansfield, "Black Cat" by Brian Auger & The Trinity, "Take You Home" by Lack Of Afro with Joss Stone, "Young People" by Fulton Street, "Next Time" by The Tibbs, "Talking About My Baby" by John Heartsman & Circles, "Bang Bang Boogaloo" by Joe Tatton Trio, "Taj Mahal" by Sunlightsquare with Josue Ferreira, "Futebol De Bar" by The Manuel Azevedo Quartet, and "I Can't Get Satisfied" by Telmo Fernandez Trio.

✨✧ Lack Of AfroMusic For Adverts ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lack Of Afro are back, and fiercer than ever before – really evolved from just a name known for funky remixes and dancefloor grooves, and stepping forward strongly into a much more well-rounded, deeply soulful group! The title's a reference to older Brit sound library albums, but the overall feel of the record is more soul-oriented than previous work by the group – making use of some especially strong lead vocals from Jack Tyson-Charles on about half the album's tracks, and mixing other singers and instrumental modes on all the others. The tunes are all pretty upbeat and bouncy – a mix of 60s and 70s styles, jumbled up in a way that's playful and catchy, yet still with plenty of funk appeal too. Titles include "No Guts No Glory", "Freedom", "One For The Trouble", "Recipe For Love", "Coco", "The Gypsy", "Here We Go Again", and "Missing Me". CD

✨✧ VariousBlack Feeling Vol 3 ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 1970s/2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from around the globe – and a volume of this series that seems even more focused on classic cuts than contemporary ones – all pulled together in a wicked blend of sounds from Africa, South America, Australia, and even American scenes in Texas and Florida too! There's a solidly 70s vibe throughout – and even the few newer numbers have a sound that stands strongly alongside the older numbers – a vibe so rich we'll forgive the cover (and the series) for its slightly pandering title – and just get on with the work of digging the music in the grooves! Highlights include some great covers – Cymande's "Brothers On The Slide" by Sonny Benton & The Typhoons, Dexter Wansel's "Life On Mars" by Antipodelica, and Donny Hathaway's classic "Valdez In The Country" by The Cuba Libre All-Stars – and other titles include "Black Rite" by Mkali Bahari Orchesra, "Razor Blade" by The Sentinels, "Rotation" by Toshio Asukataei, "The Gold Coast" by Coconut 74, "Buckingham Palace" by Glenn Eden Set, and "Sao Paulo" by Nova Catalina Octet.

Original FlavorThis Is How It Is ... LP
Atlantic/Traffic, 1992. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $14.99
The first album from Original Flavor, and along with the Jaz, the roots of the Roc A Fella clan. With the Dash brothers holding down the business end of this LP, and Ski fronting the group with a little help from Clark Kent, this middle of the road commercial hip hop album didn't make much of an impression. There's nothing wrong with the rhymes – they remind us of a less clever version of the playful side of Tribe, and the beats bounce nicely with a bit of early 90s jazz flavor, but ultimately this album's more of sidebar than main chapter in the hip hop history books, though at this point, an essential one. 13 tracks in all: "This Is How It Is", "When I Make It", "Kick The Butta", "Waitin' 4 My Break", "Handle The Technique", "Swingin", "Best Friend's Girl", "Way Wit Words", "Give 'Em Some Wrek", "Gumdrops", "I Like It (Freestyle)", "Brain Storm" and "Here We Go".

Various808 – The Compilation ... CD
Essential, 1980s/Early 90s/2016. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A great look at the Roland 808 – that important drum machine that not only formed the basis for some key hip hop classics, but also set the stage for countless cuts to come! The set begins in the early 80s New York scene – and features up three different mixes of two different important tracks – "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force and "Jam On It" by Newcleus – both of which take on nice variation in the different mixes. The set then moves onto other territory tracing the 808 both in the same period, and over the years – with cuts that include "Rock The Planet" by Megatrons, "Set It Off" by Beat Street, "Don't Stop The Rock" by Freestyle, "Dirty Talk (USA Connection mix)" by Klein & MBO, "Bass Rock Express" by Amos Larkins II, "Clear" by Beat Street, "Cars That Go Boom" by L'Trimm, and "Why Can't We Live Together" by George McCrae.

✨✧ VariousGood Mellows For Stardust Memory ... CD
Suburbia (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $24.99
Good mellows, indeed – a wonderful set of tracks collected together by Toru Hashimoto – the same guy who gave us the legendary Free Soul and Cafe Apres Midi series from Japan – now stepping out in a whole new mode! This body of work explores the idea of "good mellows" that other Japanese labels have embraced in recent years – music that flows from a 70s tradition of laidback, spiritual, and poetic sounds – but which, in this case, is all contemporary – and represents subtle murmurings from a global underground that's often eclipsed by the more commercial dance and soul music scenes. The work here is a mix of acoustic, electric, vocal, and instrumental – often very slow-spinning, but extremely lovely overall – and titles include "Sunsat" by Rollmottle, "Tropic Of Capricorn" by Oma & Amberflame, "Sunday Morning" by Chris Coco with Nick Cave, "Lost Tape" by Mutual Attraction, "By & By" by Nitsua, "My Red Rose" by Gigi Masin, "Love Story" by Freestyle Man, "Waiting" by Hidden Spheres, "Paradise" by Melchior Sultana, "Luna De Lobos" by Chari Chari, and "Over At Dieter's Place (Luis Delgado mix)" by Mark Barrott.

Thirsty Ear, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazz pianist Matthew Shipp meets the late experimental hip hop crew for a unique long player – sort of a sequel to Shipp's earlier collaboration with DJ Spooky – this being the far superior of the two! The group's approaches couldn't be more different, and the contrast is what really makes the record a winner – Shipp lays out spare, crackling live jazz with bassist William Parker, vibes player Kahn Jamal, drummer Guillermo E Brown and occasional trumpet by Daniel Carter, while Beans and Priest provide overlapped programmed electro-modeled beats, blips, and freestyle rhymes. If you heard and liked Jason Moran's hip hop conscious Modernistic CD, but wished Moran's lonely piano arrangements stepped to the next level into actual hip hop – this one's for you! 9 tracks, several crossing the 5 minute mark for a nice, langorous feel: "Staph", "Places I've Never Been", "Slow Horn", "A Knot In Your Bop", "SVP", "Coda", Stream Light", Monstro City", "Free Hop", and "Real Is Surreal".

Titles include "Chameleon" by Jazz Warriors, "Taurus Woman" by The Subterraneans with Mardou Fox, "Don't Say Nothin" by Opaz, "Kickin Jazz" by Outlaw, "Bad Brother" by Ronny Jordan, "Inner City Boundaries" by Freestyle Fellowship, "Loud Minority (club mix)" by United Future Organization, "Revival (rebirth edit)" by Martine Girault, and "Caroline" by MC Solaar.

✨✧ VariousTime Out Presents The Other Side Los Angeles – CD Selected By Madlib/DVD By Peanut Butter Wolf ... CD
Deaf Dumb + Blind, Late 60s/1970s/2000s. Used CD & DVD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive ode to the Other Side of LA from Peanut Butter Wolf & Time Out – plus an incredible CD compilation from pioneering west coast hip hop/jazz/funk figure Madlib! 'Lib assembles a 45+ minute musical melange that spans the past couple decades of underground jazz, funk, electro & hip hop – great stuff that touches on the Stones Throw/Now Again canon, but goes much deeper with work by Sun Ra, Freestyle Fellowship, Mark Murphy and more! Some tracks are deftly mixed from one cut to the next, but this feels like more of a tight, but varied compilation than a DJ set. CD tracks include "Energy Control Center" by Lightmen Plus One, "Clear" by Cybotron, "Game Over" by Dabrye feat Jay Dee & Phat Kat, "Inmate Man" by Steve Grossman, "Blood Dunza" by Prince Jazzbo, "Greenery" by Quasimoto, "Nuclear War" by Sun Ra, "Infinity" by Madlib, "Freakish Love" by Rhythm Machine, "Spread Love" by Harris & Orr, "Smog Theme" by Beat Konducta, "Survival Test" by Jaylib, "Park Bench People" by Freestyle Fellowship and more. The DVD is a 60 minute personalized travelogue of the LA scene hosted by Stones Throw head honcho/dedicated So Cal denizen Peanut Butter Wolf – introducing you to the sights and sounds, and the hippest shopping & nightlife from all kinds of neighborhoods in this sprawling metropolis – plus interviews and videos from Wolf, Roc C, Oh No, Dudley Perkins and Aloe Blacc!

✨✧ Rica AmabisSambadelic ... CD
YB Music/Sterns, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Older samba tunes, remade and remixed – in a style that recalls the approach of some of the bossa remix work in recent years! The album uses lots of core bits from older recordings – interspersed with some nice electronic touches and effects – and given the organic joy of most samba recordings, it's kind of amazing how dark and brooding this set can sometimes feel. Titles include "Mulata Assanhada", "Samba Tal Samba", "Marcio Leonardo E Telmo", "Vozes Da Seca", "Esquema Freestyle", "Uba", "Noel", and "Drum N Sambass". CD

Columbia, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
20th anniversary edition of Nas's masterpiece Illmatic – which will probably stand forever as one of the greatest hip hop full lengths of its time – maybe even for all time. Nas has had some creative ups-and-downs over the years, but nothing can take away the impact of this damn near perfect slice of east coast street hop. Nasir, "World Is Yours", indeed. The original LP is all great – 100% lean, masterful production by DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock and Q-Tip – and the titles include "NY State Of Mind", "Life's A B***h", "Half Time", "One Love", "Memory Lane", "Represent" and more. Illmatic XX is on remastered 180 gram vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album
