Will I Am (Of The Black Eyed Peas) & OthersMustb21 – Soundtrack To Get Things Started ... CD
BBE (UK), 2003. Used ... $2.99
Ahh, it's the real hip hop from Will I Am – whose drifting as far into the mainstream as he can with his primary gig as Head Pea of the Black Eyed Peas – but keeps it all straight up underground, hot party thumping for his allstar BBE set! Mustb21 plays like a great DJ set, with tracks flowing one to the next for maximum bounce – with guest rhymers on every track. KRS-One, Phife Dawg (where's he been at?), Supernatural, Planet Asia, MC Lyte, Phil Da Agony, Tash, Triple Seven and others make appearances. The beats have the electric pulse and pounding bass of our favorite more recogizable names, and they are true to Will's unapologetic tendency to make things as hooky and catchy as he can (but without the artificial sweeteners of his major label work.) Another top shelf hip hop album from BBE! Tracks include "Take It" with KRS, "Nah Mean" with Phife, "Here 2 Party" with FLII and Phil Da Agony, "It's Okay" with Triple Seven, "Ride Ride" with John Legend, "We Got Chu" with Planet Asia, "Mash Out" with MC Lyte and more.

Rawkus, 1999. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two tracks from Common Sense.

✨✧ Audio TwoI Don't Care – The Album ... CD
First Priority, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second from Milk & Gizmo. Not quite as great as the first, but what else is? Lots of nice good time hip hop here, with guest spots from Positive K and MC Lyte – and still very much in the First Priority style from back in the day. Titles include "Get Your Mother Off The Crack", "Undercover Hooker", "I Get The Papers", "Build Up Back Up", "6Teen", "Worse Than A Gremlin", "On The Road Again" and more. CD also features "Many Styles" and "Milk Does The Body Good (rmx)". CD

Island, 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nearly as good as "I'm Not Havin' It", Pos K's duet with MC Lyte. We always wondered who the uncredited female MC was 'til someone told us that the female vocal is actually Positive K through some sort of vocal processor. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Island sleeve.)

✨✧ Lester Bowie/The LeadersComplete Lester Bowie On Black Saint & Soul Note (5th Power/Out Here Like This/Unforeseen Blessings) (CD set) ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1978/1988/1989. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Three full albums – all presented in cool mini LP-styled sleeves! First up is The 5th Power – one of the best sessions as a leader ever cut by Lester Bowie – and one of the few to really share the warmth and imagination of his work with the Art Ensemble! The session features Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blyteh on alto, Amina Myers on piano and voice, Malachi Favors on bass, and Phillip Wilson on drums – working in a set of modes that replicates the sparer and more creative passages of Art Ensemble work of the early 70s. Some of the tunes are introspective, some are freer, and one number features a gospelly approach. Titles include "The 5th Power", "God Has Smiled On Me", "Sardegna Amore", and "BBB". Next are two albums that feature Bowie in The Leaders – the first of which is Out Here Like This – a great set by The Leaders, a group that's made up of players who are normally leaders on their own, but who work together here with the great spirit of a group! The lineup features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blythe on alto, Chico Freeman on tenor and soprano sax, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Don Moye on percussion – and the tracks are longish, overall – and shift easily between the straighter and more outside proclivities of the players on the set – making for a well-rounded album that showcases the mainstream aspects of the American avant scene of the time. Titles include "Donkey Dust", "Portraits", "Felicite", "Loves I Once Knew", and "Zero". Unforseen Blessings is one of the strongest albums from the Leaders sextet – an ensemble that features 6 of America's best left-of-center players of the time – all of them leaders of their own groups, putting aside ego to come together beautifully here! The set features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blythe on alto, Chico Freeman on tenor and soprano, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Don Moye on percussion – all jamming to a set of original tunes that vary between longer numbers and shorter bits that are interspersed between the tracks – a balance that further underscores the creativity of the players. Titles include "Lucia", "Now A Moment", "Heaven Dance", "Peacemaker", "The Search", "Lightish", and "Sun Percussion Six". CD
