VariousIt's A Groovy Thing Vol 3 – The Amazing Jazz Funk Sax Sound ... CD
Irma (Italy), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy ... $13.99
The third volume in this wonderful series from Irma Records – and, like the rest, a great reminder of the way the label revived a classic jazz funk mode back in the 90s – at a time when few folks were willing to give it a try, and almost never got it this right! Saxophone is the lead instrument on most of these tracks, but there's also plenty more going on too – great grooves, warm keyboards, and a soulful current that shows the Italian scene really maturing and finding its own voice. The retro style of the cover is well-placed, but most of these tracks have a nice contemporary crackle too – and titles include "Strange Days" by Italian Secret Service, "Lolita" by Michel Villari, "Dwellers Of The Parallel World" by Napolageles, "Manhattan Skyline" by Black Mighty Wax, "Close To My Heart" by Jestofunk, "Shape Your Life" by Live Tropical Fish, "Life" by Bossa Nostra, "Gate 74" by Redsolution, and "Instant Love" by Aaron Tesser & New Jazz Affair.

VariousStop & Listen Vol 1 – Dr Bob Jones ... LP
BBE (UK), 1996. Very Good+ 2LP ... $24.99
The kickoff release by the great Barely Breakin' Even label, and a master blend of grooves selected by the London club DJ Dr. Bob Jones. It's a great mix of uptempo soul cuts, and features stuff from the early 70's up through the 90's – and blended together in such a way that you don't notice the shifts in time or place, and instead just focus on the funky dancefloor grooves. Tracks include "Zaius" by Eddie Russ, "You're So Good to Me" by Curtis Mayfield, "Body Fusion" by Starvue, "For Your Precious Love (club mix)" by Jestofunk, "Hot Music" by Soho, "Huh" by DJ Smash, and "You Make Me So Hot" by Barbara Lynn. Lots more great stuff, and like walking into a slammin' club on a good night! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousIt's A Groovy Thing Vol 2 – The Amazing Jazz Funk Guitar Sound ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A collection with a classic-looking cover, and some classic-styled instrumentals as well – even though most of this music is only about a decade old! The set brings together a sweet batch of guitar-driven numbers from the Irma Records catalog – an imprint that we can always trust to serve up the kind of lean, soulful sounds that hearken back to the best soul jazz modes of the 60s and 70s – and most of these tracks are small combo grooves that follow from the spirit of Prestige Records in the 60s, or maybe early CTI in the 70s – occasionally with some vocals, most mostly instrumental on just about every track. There's a few more contemporary elements in the rhythms from time to time, but the guitar solos are always nice and live – and titles include "Nel Nome Del Suono" by Jestofunk, "Sad Like A Pierrot" by Mr Wolf, "Scotty Groove" by Piero Masciarelli, "Red Baron" by Soul Jazz Unit, "Cool Affair" by Black & Brown, "Be Bop Dance" by Piero Masciarelli, "FT" by Capiozzo Mecco & Santimone, "Funka Fuzz" by Mysterious Traveller, and "N577548" by Adriano Maria.
