✨✧ Monday MichiruAlter Ego – Nexus Remixed ... CD
Artist Share, 2010. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99
Really great remixes from Monday Michiru's Nexus album – tracks that make some really great magic with the originals! Monday's selected a great array of talents for this project, and the music really takes off from the sound of Nexus – often into territory that's even more cosmic and far-reaching, with more than a few mixes that would be perfect for a soulful dancefloor – and a few that even get pretty abstract in their approach! There's a lot more beats and keys than on most of the originals – and titles include "Epiphany (Merge Of Equals rmx)", "Sands Of Time (Soulfenix rework)", "Sands Of Time (David Federmann rework)", "Weak (Jephte Guillaume's main voc rmx)", "Your Eyes (Deejaykul rework)", "Candy (Slow Motion Replay rmx)", "Sands Of Time (Soultechnic Saxiest rework)", "Genetic Imprints (Villa Combao Inc & Ramon Riera rmx)", and "Epiphany (Soulfeenix rmx)".

Monday MichiruAlternate Routes ... CD
Artist Share, 2008. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99
Great remixes from Monday Michiru's Routes album – and a set that really continues her strong tradition of collaboration with some of the hippest talents of the underground! As with some of our favorite Michiru remixes from years back, the tracks here are more re-imaginations or re-recordings of her music than anything else – hardly just new beats or keyboards added into the mix, and often versions that have the tunes taken in rich new directions – always with the soulful, positive energy we love in Monday's originals. Collaborators include Part Time Heroes, Jephte Guillame, and Carlos Mena – and titles include "The Right Time (Yellowtail rmx)", "Hung Up (PTH sprung up mix)", "You Don't Know (feat Part Time Heroes)", "Philosophy Road (PTH hideout mix)", "The Right Time (Jephte's tet kale mix)", and "Don't (Casamena backyard mix)".

✨✧ Monday MichiruNaked Breath ... CD
Artist Share, 2004. New Copy ... $12.99
Monday Michiru in a beautifully stripped-down setting – working here with just the guitar of Adam Rogers alongside her wonderful vocals – on a record that shows just how much she's grown over the years! The format is spare, but that also seems to unlock even more jazz expression in Monday's approach – almost like a horn player working in a spare duet setting, having to do more than in a bigger group, but really growing to the challenge in the process! Titles include "Rainbows", "Native Tongue", "Crave", "No Matter What", "Slo", "Chasing After The Sun", and "No Matter What". CD

Monday MichiruNaked Breath 2 ... CD
Sonic Image, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
Beautiful work from Monday Michiru – an artist we've loved for over 20 years, and who just keeps on rewarding our faith in her work with records like this! Years back, Monday was a soul singer, then she grew into a very talented jazz singer too – and here, she's in a very special space of her own – beautifully set up with just the guitar of Yoshihisa Suzuki for accompaniment, plus a bit of her own work on flute – but mostly in a mode that just features her singing alongside the guitar! Monday's always had an expressive voice, but she really knocks it out of the park here – working so many different inflections, twists, and turns into her lyrics – so much so, we don't even miss the other instrumentation at all. Few folks could make an album this vivid with so little – but then again, Monday's always been a rare breed! Titles include the originals "One Thing's For Sure", "Seize The Day", "Brasilified", "Hidden Elements", "Disillusioned", and "Lone Wolf" – plus versions of "One Note Samba", and the Prince classic "Wanna Be Your Lover".

✨✧ Monday MichiruNaked With You EP ... CD
Kitty (Japan), 1993. Used ... $8.99
Don't be fooled by the name on the cover – which lists Monday as "Mandy" Michiru – this 5 track CD features early work by one of Japan's greatest current soul singers, recorded early in her career, back when she was working with DJ Krush! Krush handled the rhythm tracks and arrangements for the material on the ep, which is released here as part of Universal's "Reproduction Groove Series". Titles include "Naked With You", "Hear Between The Silence" in regular and remix versions, and "Do Dat Dance" in regular and remix versions. CD

Monday MichiruNexus ... CD
Artist Share, 2008. New Copy ... $12.99
Brilliant work from Monday Michiru – one of her jazziest records to date, and one of her most soulful too! There's a really deep feel going on here – light years past the basic soul and dancefloor grooves that Monday was cutting a decade ago, with a musically evolved sound that's really tremendous – as full and rich as it is simple and straightforward – filled with righteous themes and that extremely positive vibe we've always loved in Monday's music! The keyboards on the record are handled by Dave Kikoski on a number of tracks – really warm and fluid, and wrapping up Michiru's vocals wonderfully – and other instrumentation includes acoustic bass, trumpet, and some earthy percussion, which makes for a nice contrast with the Fender Rhodes on some tracks. The record's one that makes us proud we've been following Monday's work for so many years – really pleased to see it coming this far forward! Titles include "Genetic Imprints", "Sands Of Time", "On & On", "Weak", "Your Eyes", "Candy", "Sometimes", "Suite 610", and "Epiphany". CD

Monday MichiruRoutes ... CD
Artist Share, 2006. New Copy ... $12.99
Another top-shelf session from Monday Michiru – one of the few current artists who's been able to hold our attention for so many years, thanks to an ever-deepening quality in her work! Back at the end of the 90s, we were first amazed when Monday moved simpler dance-based work into more complicated singer-songwriter soul – and we've listened in wonder as she's picked up stronger jazz, Latin, Brazilian, and soul influences as the years have gone on – really growing into her own, and maturing wonderfully with age! This album's way way past the early efforts that were so strongly shaped by her co-collaborators – and features production and all original songs by Monday – recorded live in the studio with a warmly glowing quality that matches the righteous vibe of the tunes and the free-soaring spirit of her vocals. If you were ready to get tired of Monday's sound and style, this isn't the album to do it – because each new track is a surprising delight, and makes us fall in love with her work all over again! Titles include "I'm Still Here", "Yellow Light", "Dig Deep", "The Right Time", "Hung Up", "Be Who You Are", "Touch The Sky", "A New Way", and "Philosophy Road". CD

✨✧ Monday MichiruPortraits In Time – 2002 to 2013 ... CD
Adventure, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful portrait of Monday Michiru – one of our favorite singers of the past 20 years – equally well-versed in jazz, soul, and Brazilian modes – all of which come together on this collection of very well-chosen and overlooked tracks! The special 2CD package brings together music from some of Monday's smaller label and under-distributed titles – including a number of import-only selections, a few collaborations with other artists, and a really wonderful array of tunes that show just how much Michiriu has grown since she first started out! Monday hit some great fame in the mid 90s in Japan – but during recent years, she's been living in the US mostly, and really working on her craft away from the limelight – opening up with expressive jazz inflections that rival some of her best inspirations of previous decades, while still holding onto the richly soulful power that brought her some strong early attention. If you've missed hearing Monday at all, this set is a great introduction – and even if you've followed her as closely as we have, we'll bet that there's some tracks here you might not have in your collection. 23 tracks in all – including "Dreams Of Tomorrow", "Mi Vida", "Sometimes", "One (Alter Ego version)", "Generations", "Epiphany", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Nexus Interlude", "Hung Up", "Genetic Imprints", "Just Be Good To Me", "No Matter What", "Belle O Byron Bay (Bluey mix)", "No Answer", "The Cosmic Laws", and "Cut To The Chase".

✨✧ Monday MichiruYou Are The Universe (7 inch version)/Ooh La La La ... 7-inch
Grand Gallery, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very limited 7" single by the lovely Monday Michiru – only done for the Japanese market! "You Are The Universe" is a beautifully soulful song – a cover of a tune by Siedah Garrett, but done in a way that's soaring and spiritual, and very much the kind of sound that made us first fall in love with Monday's music many years back! The tune beautifully mixes jazz and house, and is made even better by the lead vocal – and it's backed by a cool take on Teena Marie's "Ooh La La La" – again done at a level that makes the tune Monday's own! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousAdventure Music – 10 Years – Compiled By Monday Michiru (3CD set) ... CD
Adventure Music, 2000s/Early 2010s. Used 3CD ... $12.99
A loving look at the Adventure Music label – served up in a 3CD set that offers a heck of a lot of great music for a very low price, all hand-picked by the lovely Monday Michiru! Adventure's been one of the best sources for Brazilian music and acoustic sounds for the past decade – a label with a really strong dedication to a few sorts of styles – like some of the best mixes of jazz, bossa, and choro modes recorded in Brazil – or the wonderful post-folk acoustic underground that's risen up in the US. The package really spans the full scope of the label's music – and offers up a whopping 44 tracks in all – all to introduce you to their efforts. Our hat's off to Monday for the track selection – and the package features work by Hamilton De Holanda, Ricardo Silveira, Daniel Santiago, Muiza Adnet, Mike Marshall, Jovino Santos Neto, Moacir Santos, Antonio Arnedo, Maria Marquez, Clarice Assad, Tom Lellis, Eva Scow, Gui Mallon, Toninho Horta, Florencia Ruiz, Alex Hargreaves, Philippe Baden Powell, and others!

Mondo GrossoNando Demo Atarashiku Umareru ... CD
Avex (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $29.99
It's been quite a long time since we last heard from Mondo Grosso – the Japanese project from Shinichi Osawa whose work was part of the same great wave of 90s Tokyo soul we loved from artists like Mondo Grosso, Kyoto Jazz Massive, and Monday Michiru! Yet, despite the passage of time, and a number of solo projects, too – Osawa is immediately back in fine fine form – delivering the sort of album that instantly bridges the Pacific with a wonderfully well-crafted batch of upbeat club music! Some of the familiar talents from that older scene are on deck to help give a voice to the Mondo Grosso music – singers Bird, UA, and Tica – alongside a few other guests vocalists who deliver soulful lyrics, mostly in Japanese – on tracks that include "See You Again", "Solitary", "Late Night Blue", "Time", "Eraser", and "Gold".

Alex SipiaginLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. Used Gatefold ... $8.99
A stunning showcase for the talents of trumpeter Alex Sipiagin – and maybe his greatest record so far! You might know Alex as the husband of singer Monday Michiru, but he's a hell of a trumpeter in his own right – and really stretches out here in the company of a killer quintet that includes Seamus Blake on tenor, David Kikoski on piano, Boris Kozlov on bass, and Nate Smith on drums – all working in that long, extended style we love so much from this Smalls series! Both Sipiagin and Blake have these well-crafted long solos that hold us rapt with their sense of soul and imagination – and Kikoski, as always, balances his talents beautifully between lyrical lines and harder rhythmic impulses. Titles include "Live Score", "Calming", "Pass", "Returning", and "Videlles". CD
