La LupeEs La Reina (The Queen) ... CD
Tico/Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... About May 1, 2015 (delayed)
La Lupe was certainly the queen of Latin music at the time of this set – and she works here in a mix of emotive ballads and more lively groovers that show the full range of her talents! Joe Cain handled arrangements on all of side one – and he casts Lupe in a string-heavy mode that really brings a dark undercurrent to the ballads and sadder songs used on the set. Hector Rivera takes over on side two, and puts Lupe in a more percussive setting that bubbles with life and joy – sometimes hinting at Latin Soul modes of the time, but mostly sticking into a rootsier, more traditional mode. Titles include "Puro Teatro", "Sueno", "Ultimo Adios", "A La Orilla Del Mar", "El Dia Que Yo Naci", "La Reina", "Me Siento Guajira", "Cafe Con Leche", "That's The Way It's Gonna Be", and "Guaguanco Bembe".

La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina ... CD
Tico, Late 60s. New Copy ... About May 1, 2015 (delayed)
While Pete Rodriguez and Pete Terrace were battling it out for the "King Of The Boogaloo" title – La Lupe went ahead and dubbed herself "The Queen Of Latin Soul"! Oddly, though, the album's less of a strict Latin Soul effort than you might guess from the title – and is more of a mix of different modes, including some more heartfelt ballads that were more typical of Lupe's work – sung here with that heartfelt sense of soul that's most likely the real reason for her claim to the title! Arrangements are by Hector DeLeon, and bring a good focus on Lupe's incredible vocals through creative use of strings and percussion. Titles do include a Latin Soul version of "Fever", plus more traditional Latin tunes that include "Amor Gitano", "Aun", "Negruna", "Este Ritmo Sabroson", "Soy Sonerita", "La Tirana", and "Busamba".

✨✧ La LupeFiebre Con EL Diablo En El Cuerpo ... CD
Discuba, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD

Robert DelgadoJamaica Disco/Dancing Queen/Tanz Unter Tropischer Sonne ... CD
Vocalion (UK), Late 70s. Used 2CD ... $13.99
A sweet trio of late 70s albums from Robert Delgado – all wrapped up together in a 2CD set! The music here all holds onto those Caribbean and Latin touches that made Delgado so great in the 60s – a unique pop instrumental approach to global genres that made Robert almost an A&M equivalent on the German easy scene! On these records, though, Delgado also brings in a bit of disco too – not a full-on New York groove, but lots of clubby touches alongside the easy instrumental modes – smoothing out the earlier styles a bit more for a mainstream dancefloor. The approach is surprisingly appealing at times – and the three albums together serve up a whopping 46 tracks that include "In Zaire", "Dance Little Lady Dance", "Verde", "Silver Bird", "Taboo", "Mambo Jambo", "Black River", "Guadalupe Limbo", and "Arawak".

Robert GlasperBlack Radio ... LP
Blue Note, 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 34.98
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".

Robert GlasperBlack Radio Vol 2 ... CD
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy ... $10.99 14.98
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".

Lupe FiascoTetsuo & Youth ... CD
Atlantic, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A nice progressive step for Lupe Fiasco – a rhymer who was ready to carve out his own distinctive niche from the beginning his career, and it's never been more unique than it is on Tetsuo & Youth – with diverse, though always soulfully resonant production by S1, Wiz Buchanan, DJ Dahi, Lupe himself, and others. It's almost damning to note an artist's maturation from a young hopeful to seasoned veteran, as "maturing" is too often mistaken for "getting old" – so we're running a risk by saying it, but Lupe Fiasco's style has indeed matured, but in an exciting, inspiring way. This is a guy who can start a track with a string section or even a banjo sample and still ring true as city-reared, straight up hip hop. This is a record we'll keep coming back to for a long time to come! Includes "Summer", "Mural", Blur My Hands" with Guy Sebastian, "Fall", "Prisoner 1 & 2" with Ayesha Jaco, "Little Death" and "No Scratches" with Nikki Jean, "Deliver", "Adoration Of The Magi" with Crystal Torres, "Spiring", "They. Resurrect. Over. New." with Ab-Soul & Troi and more. CD

✨✧ 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 ... Out Of Stock
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!

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!)
