Bobbi HumphreyFreestyle ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
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". CD

Andy Tolman CartelCipher ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic album of funky soundtrack grooves – one that was recently recorded by guitarist Andy Tolman, but which instantly takes us back to the best 70s film scores by artists like Quincy Jones, Johnny Pate, or Lalo Schfrin! Like both of those giants at their best, Andy works here in a style that's rooted in jazz – with superb arrangements and strong individual elements at the core – all fused together with a tight funky vibe that's never too slick or commercial at all – but which also has a lot more big-picture approach than the usual deep funk combo style too! There's also nothing "easy" about the music – no flip retro references, or cheap copycat modes – as Andy's sound here is very original, and very proudly its own – with a strength that makes it more than able to live up to the legendary status we're kind of giving it. Titles include "Cypher", "Speedball", "Politea Square", "Tempo Do Sol", "Claret & Blues", "You What", and "Copra Libertadores". LP, Vinyl record album

Jessica LaurenAlmeria ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $13.99
When Jessica Lauren first grabbed our ears 20 years ago, she was a keyboardist on the London contemporary scene – but with a much deeper jazz vision than most – an artist whose appearances on record always made any sort of song come across with a spiritual sound that was unique for the time! Move forward to the present, when so many others have finally hit Jessica's territory – and the pianist has stepped far forward again – to open up this rich flow of ideas that's overflowing with global elements as well! The album's easily Jessica's deepest work to date – and not only features her own great keyboards and percussion, but also this very cool wordless vocal style – borrowed a bit from Brazilian fusion of the 70s, but given a fresh spin here – and combined with instrumentation that includes woodwinds, marimba, percussion, flugelhorn, and drums. The whole thing's wonderful – with echoes and elements that evoke the special genre-crossing space of Bobby Hutcherson in the mid 70s, the work of Flora Purim and Airto, the 70s South African recordings of Dollar Brand – and some of the hippest sides of some of Lauren's London contemporaries. Titles include "Simba Jike", "Amalfi", "Kofi Nomad", "Teck Et Bambou", "Chocolate Con Churros", "Argentina", and "Beija Flor". CD

MenagerieArrow Of Time ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $12.99
Deep sounds from Menagerie – a group led by funky genius Lance Ferguson, who's given us wonderful work in a variety of styles over the years – but who here has turned his talents to the world of spiritual jazz, which he takes on brilliantly with this excellent ensemble! Menagerie have a classic vibe that really lives up to the cover of the record – a style that's in that post-Coltrane moment when jazz groups were getting even more sophisticated with both their performance and sense of composition – really pushing the boundaries with new ideas, and a much larger vision in jazz. Lance plays guitar in the group, but the fuller energy comes from the tenor, alto, and soprano sax of Phillip Noy, as well as the trumpet of Ross Irwin, and use of piano and Fender Rhodes by Mark Fitzgibbon – all excellent players who can really hit the right sort of crescendo in spirit! The leadoff track has some great vocals, and all others are instrumental – nice and long, and very deep – with titles that include "Evolution", "The Arrow Of Time", "Escape Velocity", "Spiral", and "Nova".

Courtney PineBlack Notes From The Deep ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
One of the greatest albums in years from reedman Courtney Pine – a set that firmly reminds us just what an important part of the British scene he was many years back! In the years after the experimental waves of British jazz rock and avant jazz, Pine was a surprisingly strong voice in the 80s and 90s – one whose talents reached these shores, as one of the first soulful British jazz musicians to really show a different side of the London scene – where his strong vision and talent for collaboration were continually opening new ears and new possibilities! That aspect of Pine's music is very firmly in place here – on a set that's got a strong combo at the core, but which also features vocals from Omar on four tracks – an addition to the set that also changes up the rhythms a bit, and reminds us just how important Courtney was at giving younger musicians and singers a chance to shine. Pine plays tenor and flute, and the album also features electric and acoustic piano from Robert Mitchell, organ from Ed Bentley, bass from Alec Dankworth, and drums from Rod Youngs. Omar sings on "Rules", "Butterfly", "Darker Than The Blue", and "In Another Time" – and other titles include "You Know Who You Are", "The Morning After The Night Before", "Rivers Of Blood", "Word To The Wise", and "A Change Is Sure To Come".

Freestyle (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

"Butterfly" is a fantastic take on the Herbie Hancock tune of the same name – set to some beats that are slightly broken, and graced with these sublime soul lyrics from Omar – followed by a sweet solo from Courtney, and a great keyboard part too! "Rules" has this piano/bass part that feels lifted right from "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" – served up again with wonderful vocals from Omar! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A blistering array of contemporary funk and soul cuts – all served up by DJ Craig Charles – once an actor on the UK scene, now one of the biggest supporters of the global funk underground! As with previous volumes, the set pulls together a range of killer tracks from recent years – music that begins with the Daptone-styled groove, but opens up into lots of other funky styles too – mixed with a few vintage tracks for good measure!

Anti Pop Consortium/Matthew ShippAnti Pop Vs Matthew Shipp ... CD
Thirsty Ear, 2003. Used ... $5.99
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".

Along with Showbiz and AG's first EP, and Lord Finesse's first couple releases, this record helped introduce the world to one of the most solid crews in hip hop, DITC – who reigned supreme for years, making top quality records one after another. The classic and oft-imitated Diamond beats laid the blueprint for so much hip hop to follow – and the titles include "Sally Got A One Track Mind," "Best Kept Secret," "I'm Outta Here," "Check One, Two", "Freestyle (Yo That's The Sh..)" and more! Loads of great guest stars, like Lakim Shabazz, Big L, Fat Joe, and Brand Nubian. LP, Vinyl record album

Produced by Illpee with no nonsense, headnodding beats, this set finds a really fine balance between celebrating the roots of classic era indies beats and rhymes centric craft, with a fairly timeless feel overall – right at home in the here-and-now. Titles include "Hip Hop 101", "Fat Caps", "Rat Race", "No Free Beasts", "Soul By The Tup", "Never 4 Get", "Clap", "Love 4 Ever", "Night Owl" and more. CD

EMI/Odion Livingstone (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderfully funky set from this hip Nigerian group of the 70s – a set that's a lot more soulful than their trippy first album – and done with a range of great grooves overall! The instrumentation here is focused on the core talents of the combo – with lots of riffing guitar alongside the drums and bass – used in ways that are a lean, simple take on the modes of bigger Nigerian funk acts of the time – clubby, but not really disco, as there's a pretty sharp edge on most of the tunes! Vocals still take on some of the spacier qualities of the group's debut, but they sound very different here in a funkier setting – and the album also features some nice guest keyboards and funky flute at a few spots too. Titles include "Bad City Girl", "Yeah Runnin", "Freestyle", "Who Gives A Damn", "When Will I Learn", and "Maya". CD

Sweetly funky grooves from the Philly underground! The Philadelphia Experiment is a great trio featuring drummer Ahmir Thompson (from The Roots), jazz bassist Christian McBride, and keyboardist Uri Caine, who plays some great Fender Rhodes and Hammond B-3 on the set! The core grooves are by the trio, working together in a way that's not that different from the freestyle funk of Medeski, Martin, & Wood back when they used to care a bit more about the groove – and the group's joined on a few tracks by guests, including Pat Martino on guitar, Jon Swana on trumpet, and Larry Gold on cello. The best cuts on the set have a hard beat underneath, warm rolling basslines, and washes of keyboards over the top to keep things nice and sweet. Titles include "The Miles Hit", "Call For All Demons", "Grover", "Ain't It The Truth", "Mister Magic", "Philadelphia Freedom", and "Lesson #4". CD

The setting is the 1992 Phoenix Festival near London, and shows the Roots, and even though we know good and well this band burst out of the gates in solid form, it's still pretty stunning! Raw drums by Questlove, jazzy soul bass and keys, and brilliant rhymes by Black Thought and Malik B playing off each other perfectly. Incredible!

Ne'Astra, Late 90s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.98
Lost tracks for the Fantastic Vol 2 sessions and beyond – recorded from the mid-to-late 90s and featuring perfect production by Jay Dee! For years onward we appreciated music that came out under the Slum Village banner, even without the much-heralded early line-up – those later efforts deserve more respect – but we're not gonna lie, it's a real joy to get another helping of classic line-up Slum Village and this era of Dilla's production style. It's built from the bare essentials of beats, bass and fairly little in addition – be it spare piano or other elements – and he ekes so much expansive atmosphere out of those minimal building blocks. The MCs fresh and focused as ever too, even on the freestyles, showing how sharp they are on the mic even without pre-penned, more-focused rhymes. It opens with a killer "Hold Tight" remix feat Q-Tip and it doesn't dip any lower from that high point. Other tracks include "Burn", "Hardcore", "Bring It Back", "Dilla Freestyle", "Oh!", "Like This", "Living It Up", "Lab Test" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe not the first full length album by a female MC, but a really well-remembered set from the early days – and one that hardly tries to go for any crossover modes at all! Instead, Sparky-D really keeps it live and close to the streets – beginning the set with an acapella track that almost feels like a freestyle – then following with lots of strong production work from Spyder D – who again keeps things lean and nicely sharp – really providing the kind of beat-heavy burst that could make old school rhymes sound so powerful and urgent! Titles include "Never Ran, Never Will", "Grand Creator K-Wiz, Best In The Biz", "This Is Sparky D's World", "I Can't Stop", "Yankee Boy", "Punk Rock Rap", "Throwdown", and "Sparky's Rap". CD features bonus tracks – including "Throwdown (12" version)", "Throwdown (stupid Doc's dub)", "I Can't Stop (12" version)", "Changes (inst)", "I Can't Stop (inst)", and "Changes (12" version)". CD

We're huge fans of the series Insecure – and over and above the performance and vision of the show by Issa Rae, we're also big fans of the music – which features a great array of contemporary artists working on the forefront of soul music – really taking things far in a range of 21st Century modes! This album features a few tracks with Issa delivering some of her trademark freestyle breakout rhymes – but most of the package is comprised of songs that feature in scenes from the show – music that also makes for a great introduction to the new world of underground soul. Rae performs "Go Low", "Cheater For One", "Ho For It", "Rejected", and "Bloct" – and other tracks include "Supermodel" by SZA, "Insecure" by Jazmine Sullivan & Bryston Tiller, "Crew" by Goldlink with Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy, "A Lite" by Buddy, "Real Bitch Problems" by TT The Artist, "Lowkey" by Kari Faux, "Poppin" by Rico Nasty, "The Juice" by Hero, "Hit The Ceiling" by Lion Babe, "Feels Like" by NAO, "Fine Lines" by Jorja Smith, "Morning Blues" by Smiles Davis with Bosco and Tola, and "Gucci Ice Cream" by Girls In The Yard.
