✨✧ Jimmy GreeneWhile Looking Up ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We're sure that Jimmy Greene shot that cover photo before the Covid-19 lockdown, but the image has a particularly strong resonance after all of us have faced that situation – which is why the "looking up" title on the album is very well placed! Greene's music has this sense of positivity that's really great – not an easy, blithely optimistic vibe – but this personal spirit that really comes through in his music – a vibe that's uplifting, but never too facile too – this great quality that comes through the interplay of Jimmy's work on tenor and soprano, with guitar from Lage Lund, piano and Fender Rhodes from Aaron Goldberg, bass from Reuben Rogers, and drums from Kendrick Scott – plus some guest vibes from Stefon Harris too. Most tracks are Greene originals – and titles include "Overreaction", "Steadfast", "Simple Prayer", "While Looking Up", and "April 4th". CD

✨✧ Willie MabonShake That Thing ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (France), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great date from this legendary Chicago musician – an artist who recorded in the early days for Chess Records, then seemed to find his most welcome recording home overseas on albums like this! The material is from a 1973 session in France, but has all the grit and growl of a Chicago recording – with Willie on vocals, piano, and a bit of harmonica – and some sweet electric lines on guitar from the team of Louis Myers on lead, and Jimmy Rogers on rhythm – alongside Dave Myers on bass and Fred Below on drums. There's almost a slight current of funk at times, which Willie emphasizes with his piano in a great way – and titles include "Got To Have Some", "Shake That Thing", "Poison Ivy", "I'm Mad", "Lover Girl", "I Enjoyed Myself In Pau", "Hungry", and "Hey Girl". CD features a number of unissued tracks – including a few recorded at the same time in The Netherlands with guest vocals on one track by Koko Taylor! CD
(Part of the "True Blue Masters – Black & Blue" series!)

✨✧ VariousMasterpiece Volume 32 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great entry in this long-running collection – a series that's really evolved over the years, as you'll hear on this CD! Masterpiece was never about straight disco at the start – it always focused on more obscure post-disco tracks from the early 80s – and by the time of this volume, the label's shifted a lot more towards the second half of the decade – so that you've got a range of very cool 80s groove numbers that fly way below the radar! Most of these are tracks we'd never heard before – much more obscure than the early volumes – and there's a great range of work from varied sources, with titles that include "One & Only" by Cool R, "Jealous Lovers" by Ritsch $, "Come To Me" by Bennie Braxton, "Green Light" by Carmen Bogart, "I Can't Wait To Break" by Billy Jones, "I'll Be There (club mix)" by Demetrius, "Jealousy" by Bora Bora, "A Lover's Passion" by Tammi Holt, "Don't Quit (12" mix)" by Cecile Grier, "Confide In Me (ext radio)" by Jimmy Holland, and "Shifting Sands" by Pete Q with Helen Rogers.

✨✧ AcesChicago Beat (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from this Chicago group – material recorded in France, but which wails with the best sound of the small blues clubs on the south side at the time! The core group features Louis Myers on guitar and harmonica, Dave Myers on bass, and Fred Below on drums – joined by Eddie Taylor, Mickey Baker, and Jimmy Rogers on guitar at points – plus a bit of piano from the great Willie Mabon! The whole thing's excellent – very true to form, and more Delmark than some of the slicker blues recordings that were starting to show up at the time – on titles that include "Ace's Shuffle", "Tell Me Mama", "Take A Little Walk With Me", "Whole Lot Of Lovin", "Blues For Marcelle", and "Money Marbles & Chalk". CD features lots of bonus tracks – 6 more tracks added to the original album! CD

✨✧ Leon BryantMighty Body (Hotsy Totsy)/Finders Keepers (with bonus track) ... CD
De-Lite/Solid (Japan), 1981/1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of great records from Leon Bryant – both from the late De-Lite Records years, and offered up here back to back! First up is Mighty Body – a set also known as the self-titled Leon Bryant album – overlooked genius from Leon – a singer with a hell of a voice, and a range that can go from very low to super-soaring at the drop of a hat! And fortunately, that style works great here for the later De-Lite Records approach – funky club at its best, with grooves that are already great before Bryant steps into the mix – then find a special sort of magic, thanks to Leon's voice! There's also a good mix of balance, here – as the upbeat groovers are blended with some nice midtempo cuts, and one great stepper too. Titles include "Something More", "Come & Get It", "Just The Way You Like It", and "You Can Depend On Me". Next up is Finders Keepers, a record that would have been huge, had it gotten the kind of mainstream placement it deserved – which would have let the world hear what a great singer Leon Bryant could be! The set's got some top-shelf arrangements from Jimmy Mack and Sonny Sanders – both of whom are sliding perfectly into an 80s soul groove here, but still with all the hipper indie touches of the early years – which means that the whole thing perfectly avoids cliche or commercialism, while also giving Bryant the right sort of sophisticated vibe that works well with the depth of his voice. The range is almost one that we'd rank right up there with DJ Rogers – although with less of the spiritual vibe – and titles include "Are You Ready", "Honey", "Finders Keepers", "Your Kind Of Lovin", and "I Can See Me Loving You". CD also features the bonus track "Mighty Body (original 12" version)". CD
