✨✧ Cold SweatCold Sweat Plays JB ... LP
JMT (Germany), 1989. Sealed ... $6.99
A late 80s tribute to the James Brown groove – done at a time when few others were respecting the JB sound instrumentally, although many had already started to sample the classics! The group here is headed up by trombonist Craig Harris, who also does a bit of singing on the set – and the lineup includes a fair number of other horns as well, clearly trying to replicate a JBs kind of mode – but working with some more electric 80s instrumentation overall. Notable guests include Olu Dara, Arthur Blythe, and David Murray – and titles include the originals "Brown's Prance" and "Brown's Dance", plus "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", "Cold Sweat", "Try Me", and a "Showtime Medley".

Walter JenkinsBack In My Life/Funky Walk (The Monkey Walk) ... 7-inch
Fader Kat/Tramp (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
A couple of the only cuts we've ever heard by Walter Jenkins and a should-be classic Funky 45! "Back In My Life" has a great sound that's stripped down on the instrumental tip – a tight little bass, drums, guitar and horns backdrop – but it really soars in the vocal realm, with super soulful lead by Walter and gorgeous female backing vocals. Great stuff! "Funky Walk" is just the kind JB-inspired stormer you'd expect from the title – a real floor shaker! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ray & His CourtRay & His Court ... LP
Sound Triangle, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever – a lost gem from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB/Horny Horns funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray and the group are one of the more obscure funky combos of the era, and it's a damn shame, because the group's tight-as-can-be amalgam of JB's style horn riffing and thumping Afro-Cuban percussion is some of the absolute best of its kind. This group seriously smokes any of the current funk bands on the road! On these sessions Ray wrote, produced, played "organ flute" and provided some vocals in a large group that includes three trumpets, bass clarinet, sax, two drummers, congas, electric bass, and a line of mostly Spanish vocalists. Amazing 70s super funk with a very proud Latin edge – and featuring tracks that include "Sunny", "Soul Freedom", "Cookie Crumbs", "De Eso Nada Monada", "Lo Sabia", "Venimos Acabando", "La Pena", and "La Senorita Lola".

✨✧ MaterialThird Power ... CD
Axiom, 1991. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
As with much of the work in his career, Bill Laswell assmebles an all star cast, this one based around the crew he'd pull from as he explored some of the heavier more tripped out directions that seemed to guide his work through the 90s. On the one hand he's tapping into the P-Funk axis with Bootsy, Gary Shider, Mudbone Cooper and Bernie Worrell, while still using some of the world music and reggae musicians he recruited nteh 80s, like Sly & Robbie and Aiyb Deng, plus the JB's horns withMaceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis. Add a touch of avant jazz from Olu Dara and Henry Threadgill, plus a host of vocalists including the Jungle Brothers, Jalaluddin Nuriddin of the Last Poets and Shabba Ranks and you've got a pretty heavy cast of characters. Includes "Reality", "Playin With Fire", "Cosmic Slop", "E-Pluribus-Unum", "Drive-By", "Power OF Soul (Black Chant)", "Mellow Mood" and "Glory". CD

JBsGimme Some More/The Rabbit Got The Gun ... 7-inch
People, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A classic JBs single – with a non-LP b-side! "Gimme Some More" is a stone classic by the group – a proud and stomping funk song, with a catchy refrain that starts from the first beat, and which really wails as the tune goes on! "Rabbit" is a rare one with an unusual groove – fast, almost tribal rhythms, bass plucked super-strongly with horns blasting out a nice chase groove over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Pat Van DykeLet the Horns Blow EP ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Pat Van Dyke definitely lets the horns blow here – a trumpet, tenor, and trombone – often working together in the frontline, in a way that echoes the old school sound of the JBs – while Pat Van Dyke lays down a set of more contemporary breaks and beats! The mix of studio rhythms and live horns is great – especially when the instrumentalists step out a bit and sprinkle things with their own flavors – on titles that include "Afro", "Break", "On The Good Foot", and "Forth & Back". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nite-LitersA-Nal-Y-Sis ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1973. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
A masterpiece of hard and heavy funk – from one of the best bands of the early 70s! The Nite Liters were a legendary funky combo that provided the backing for some of New Birth's best albums – but on their own, they were even funkier, and had a sound that was part JBs, part Meters, and all funky! This album may well be the group's best – their last for RCA, and a set that really has them honing their edge incredibly. The drums are amazing, the keyboards great, and the horns have this quality that's both complex, yet right on the money – making for a richness in sound that really sets the group apart from their contemporaries. A few singers from The New Birth provide chorus vocals on a few tracks – but most of the set is instrumental, and the record's one we'd gladly stack next to our Meters albums on Josie or JBs classics on People. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Drumology", "Excuse Me While I Do My Thing", "Serenade for a Jive Turkey", "Happy Hooker", "Craaashing", "Damn", "Pee-Foul", and a sweet cover of "Valdez in the Country" that's been sampled at least once over the years!

✨✧ BreakestraLive Mix Part 2 ... CD
Stones Throw, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky madness! This one's exactly what is says – a live mix, recorded by this hip funky combo, sort of a mixtape of classic funky tunes, all slammed together in one massive performance! Breakestra run through some of the biggest funky 45s of the 60s and 70s, jamming hard in one live to tape performance that takes us back to the classic days of the JBs grooving in the studio with James Brown. Plenty of choppy guitars, hot bubbly organ, sweet keyboard licks, and hard heavy horns throughout! CD

✨✧ James BrownAin't It Funky ... LP
King, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer from James Brown – and one of his best instrumental albums of the King years! The record has James working with the pre-JBs James Brown Band – a tight assemblage of players who really know how to craft an off-kilter groove. The guitar's popping on the beat here as much as the horns, making for a syncopated groove that's utterly fantastic – as tight as a drum, and as funky as one too! Includes some great long cuts – like the 9 minute, two-part versions of "Ain't It Funky" and "Fat Wood" – plus some great shorter funky 45 type material, like "Nose Job", "Use Your Mother", "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose", and a version of "Cold Sweat". All the work here is tremendous – the kind of inspirational funky material that makes the album a lasting classic decade after decade! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! The horns take a more Afrobeat tack, too, with punchy blasts and solos peppering the numbers – in a really nice way – quite tight, but loose enough to swing, too. Tracks include "I Wanna Do My Thing", "Return To You", "Getting Together", "I Believed Her", "I Don't Have To Worry", "I Want You", "Love Is The Only Way", "Gimme Some Lovin" and more. CD

Fred Wesley & The Horny HornsBlow For Me, A Toot To You ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good ... $24.99
After Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker came head to head with James Brown in the mid 70s, they broke off and formed the Horny Horns contingent – a tight funky backing section that's featured on a number of late 70s funk sessions, and which also recorded some extremely nice numbers on their own! This first album has the group working with George Clinton and Bootsy, who was a friend of Fred and Maceo from the old days – and who could really use the tight playing of some James Brown-trained musicians to smooth out their groove. This album was the group's first – and it's still their best – forging a massive new funk sound with the best elements of the old JBs fused through Clinton and Bootsy's P-Funk filter. Includes the monster funk cut "Fourplay" – a standout classic that features a funky break, hard solos, and all the other elements you'd need to make a great funky instrumental. Other tracks include "Between The Sheets", "Peace Fugue", and a version of "Up For The Down Stroke". LP, Vinyl record album
