Dave Cortez & The Moon People/La LupeHappy Soul (With A Hook)/Fever ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $11.99
Great work from Dave Baby Cortez and The Moon People – a lost Latin soul combo! "Happy Soul" has a similar groove to the group's more famous "Land Of Love" cut – but this version has a drum breakdown in the middle, and a cool organ solo from Dave Baby Cortez! La Lupe sings her version of "Fever" on the flip – done with a Latin Soul style that's mighty nice – almost a bridge between the tune's origins in the 50s, and the late 60s boogaloo generation! 7-inch, Vinyl record

La LupeFiebre Con EL Diablo En El Cuerpo ... LP
Discuba, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 16.98
Early work from La Lupe – but a set that already shows the highly dynamic style that would make her a real standout in 60s Latin music! A number of the tracks here are listed as "rock" in the rhythms – which doesn't exactly mean that Lupe's singing rock music, but already shows an ear for the kind of elements that would cross over to larger audiences than just the usual Latin crowd – almost a prequel to the styles that would come up even more during the Latin Soul years! Many of these numbers are kind of a Spanish-language equivalent of Jovem Guarda modes in mid 60s Brazil – although maybe a bit less rocking overall – and Lupe's vocals are amazing in the setting, almost even more striking than in later years. Titles include "Alone", "Quiereme Siempre", "Fiebre", "Con El Diablo En El Cuerpo", "Crazy Love", and "Es Una Bomba". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaMongo Y La Lupe (aka Mongo Introduces La Lupe) ... LP
Fantasy, 1963. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Mongo teams up the great Latin diva La Lupe in the early 60s for a tasty set of Latin Jazz and Descargas. The band includes the great set of players Mongo was using at this time – including Marty Sheller, Pat Patrick and Bobby Capers, plus Kako sits in on percussion, though La Lupe sings on only about half of the tracks. 9 numbers in all, including "Besito Pa Ti", "Canta Bajo", "Montuneando", "Oye Este Guaganco", "Esta Mambo", "Quiet Stroll", "Que Linda Son", and "Kiniqua".

✨✧ La LupeLa Lupe's Era ... LP
Tico, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Lupe's best from the 60s – a hard-driving session with loads of uptempo numbers, and some great heavy salsa arrangements by Hector DeLeon! Gone are some of the overdone numbers of other albums, and in their place are some highly percussive jammers that really keep the groove going strong. Titles include "Guantamera La Virgen De Guadalupe", "Jala Jala", "Bembe Pata Pata", "El Hijo Sin Nombre", and "Solfeo De Ave Maria" – plus a Spanish version of the hit "You Don't Know How Glad I Am". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousWelcome To The Party – Sister Funk, Latin Soul, Egyptian Jazz, & Much More ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer collection of grooves from the always-hip Jazzman label – a dozen tracks previously issued by the imprint on 45s, now brought together in one nicely-priced CD! The set's a definite party from the start – kicking off with Latin rhythms, moving into exotic jazz modes, then hitting Miami soul, vocal jazz, and heavy funk along the way – a really rich blend of styles that fully shows the range of grooves we've come to love from Jazzman! As with other projects like this from the label, there's no going wrong with this collection – as it's a rock-solid batch of tracks with really wide-ranging appeal – as fresh as it is funky, and filled with wonderful surprises. Titles include "Egypt Strut" by Salah Ragab, "Baby You're A Jive Cat" by Sheila Wilkerson, "Do Right Man" by Little Beaver, "Saona" by Noro Morales, "Soul Sitar" by Sohail Rana, "Fever" by La Lupe, "It Was A Very Good Year" by Della Reese, "Babalonia" by Ricardo Marrero, "Soft Cheese" by Natural Yoghurt Band, and "Tighten Up" by Al Escobar.

Robert Glasper ExperimentBlack Radio – Japan Tour Package (Black Radio/Black Radio 2/Black Radio Recovered/bonus track) (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2012/2013. New Copy 3CD ... $38.99
A really special Japanese-only package – designed to accompany Robert Glasper's tour of Japan! The set features 3 CDs from his Experiment albums – the first of which is Black Radio, an album that features loads of Glasper's enigmatic piano lines – those fluid, elliptical sounds that are always filled with plenty of soul and imagination – matched here with guest vocals from a host of key talents – including Erykah Badu, Lalah Hathaway, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, and Lupe Fiasco! One of the best musical moments we've heard from Blue Note in years – with titles that include "Always Shine", "Move Love", "Ah Yeah", "Lift Off", "Afro Blue", "Cherish The Day", "Black Radio", and "Letter To Hermione". Next is the follow-up – Black Radio 2 – a set that makes us fall in love with his music even more than before – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that we've loved him for years! Glasper's working here in his collaborative Black Radio format – but at a level that's even more perfected than the initial album of this project – a really groundbreaking blend of live jazz instrumentation and underground soul inspiration – served up by Robert's core quartet, with help from a whole host of wonderful guest singers! The singers are the icing on the cake – a lineup that includes Faith Evans, Dwele, Jill Scott, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Norah Jones, and others – on titles that include "Calls", "Worries", "I Stand Alone", "What Are We Doing", "Trust", "Yet To Find", "You Own Me", "Somebody Else", "Persevere", and "Let It Ride". Last up is Black Radio Recovered – sweet remixes from Robert Glasper's Black Radio album – all of them tunes that sound even more soulful than the originals! Given that the core record itself was a bit of a "remix" – Glasper's keyboards, funky beats, and hip contributions from a range of soul singers – the expansion of those sounds works perfectly here – stretching out the wonderful mix of modes through some sweet tracks that still leave plenty of room for Robert's keyboards. The set includes a totally great 9 minute "Dillalude #2", plus "Twice (?uestlove's Twice Baked rmx)", "Afro Blue (9th Wonder's blue light basement rmx with Phonte)", "Black Radio (Pete Rock rmx)", "Consequences Of Jealousy (Georgia Anne Muldrow's sassy geemix)", and "Letter To Hermione (Robert Glasper & Jewels rmx)". Black Radio 2 also features tracks from the deluxe version – and the bonus track "Trust (alternate)" with Marsha Ambrosius & Common. CD
(Comes with bonus stickers too!)

Soul JazzmenInhlupeko (Distress) ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
A tremendous bit of South African jazz – recorded in the years after bigger names like Hugh Masekela and The Blue Notes had left for greener pastures, but when there were still plenty of great artists back at home! The Soul Jazzmen have this laidback, souful sound that's very much in keeping with their name – part 60s soul jazz, with some modal touches at the best moments, partly the spiritual styles that were just coming into play in the US, especially in the wake of John Coltrane – with open-ended rhythms that allow for these really great tenor solos from Dudu Makasi, whose work alone is worth the price of the record! Dudu is wonderful – part old school tenorist, with roots in the Chicago school of the 50s – but also partly a spiritualist too, although one that never gets too far out or overindulgent. Rhythms are from the trio of Tete Mbambisa on piano, Pych Big-T Stsele on bass, and Mafufu Jama on drums – and the quartet come together brilliantly on titles that include "Mr Mecca", "Relaxin", "Inhlupeko", "How Old Is The World", and "Dollar The Great".

✨✧ Robert GlasperBlack Radio ... LP
Blue Note, 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An amazing new chapter in the career of Robert Glasper – one of our favorite new jazz musicians of the past decade or so! This set features loads of Glasper's enigmatic piano lines – those fluid, elliptical sounds that are always filled with plenty of soul and imagination – matched here with guest vocals from a host of key talents – including Erykah Badu, Lalah Hathaway, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, and Lupe Fiasco! The blend is surprisingly wonderful – not a sell out at all, but a way for Glaspar's music to reach a rich new level of expression – as the vocals really help the instrumental elements come alive – and unlock this side of Robert's potential that was always lurking in the background. One of the best musical moments we've heard from Blue Note in years – with titles that include "Always Shine", "Move Love", "Ah Yeah", "Lift Off", "Afro Blue", "Cherish The Day", "Black Radio", and "Letter To Hermione".

✨✧ Mitch Ryder & The Detroit WheelsBreakout ... CD
New Voice/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Blue-eyed soul from the legendary Mitch Ryder – and pretty darn gritty at that – steeped in styles borrowed from Memphis and Muscle Shoals, and given a bit of a color-blind twist on the Detroit scene of the late 60s! Mitch clearly loves the motor city sound of the 60s, but also takes things to farther points south, too – using elements that would be right at home on Stax or Atlantic Records, and coming up with a crossover sound that had his recorded almost ending up in more soul collections over the years than rock ones! Production is by pop maestro Bob Crewe, but it's surprisingly unadorned compared to some of Crewe's other work of the time – and the album bristles with sock-soul instrumentation from the Detroit Wheels, and loud, proud vocals from Mitch. There's a bit of garaey guitars in the mix, too – making for a mighty nice hybrid of styles – and titles include "Shakin With Linda", "You Get Your Kicks", "Any Day Now", "I Need Help", "Little Latin Lupe Lu", "Walkin The Dog", "I Had It Made", and the classic "Breakout".

✨✧ Robert GlasperBlack Radio Vol 2 ... LP
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing work from Robert Glasper – a set that makes us fall in love with his music even more than before – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that we've loved him for years! Glasper's working here in his collaborative Black Radio format – but at a level that's even more perfected than the initial album of this project – a really groundbreaking blend of live jazz instrumentation and underground soul inspiration – served up by Robert's core quartet, with help from a whole host of wonderful guest singers! Glasper alone is worth the price of admission – Fender Rhodes and piano lines that are completely sublime, in that flowing groove that's only gotten better with age – and the combo also features wicked bass from Derrick Hodge, sax and flute from Casey Benjamin, and some damn funky drums from Mark Colenburg – who proves that you don't need any drum loops or samples to make music this great. The singers are the icing on the cake – a lineup that includes Faith Evans, Dwele, Jill Scott, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Norah Jones, and others – on titles that include "Calls", "Worries", "I Stand Alone", "What Are We Doing", "Trust", "Yet To Find", "You Own Me", "Somebody Else", "Persevere", and "Let It Ride".
