✨✧ Dam-FunkOBE/Special Friends ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A white label 12-inch DJ single from the mighy Dam-Funk – with the Invite The Light standout album cut "OBE" and the previously unreleased "Special Friends"! We've been in love the track "OBE" since Invite The Light first drop, as its one the stronger cuts, has a spacey electro disco/deep house-inflected groove and is pretty much unshakable once it seeps into your conciousness! Much as we love that track, the heretofore unheard "Special Friends" is an even better reason to pick this one up – with a great modern funk instrumental vibe. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label.)

Kuumba-Toudie HeathKawaida ... LP
Obe, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A super-hip batch of soul jazz tracks by Albert Toodie Heath of the Heath Brothers – working here on a rare session as a leader, with a sound that's right up there with the Heath Brothers' early work for Strata East!! The lineup is incredible – as Heath is joined by players that include Don Cherry, Buster Williams, Mtume, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Heath, and Ed Blackwell – all coming together for a session that's nearly lost to the history books, but which is one of the strongest spiritual jazz sessions of the late 60s! Herbie plays all acoustic piano throughout, and the tracks are long, leaping, and loping – with stretched-out spiritual solos from Jimmy Heath and Don Cherry – and a proud and righteous sound that's extremely free-spirited without going too far out! Titles include "Baraka", "Maulana", "Dunia", and "Kamili". LP, Vinyl record album

Dam-FunkInvite The Light ... CD
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Dam Funk does it again – really blowing us away with his crispy fresh version of funk – one that's a perfect fusion of old school modes from the 70s and 80s, and some of the more cosmic touches of the current century! The approach uses lots of splash on the keyboards and beats – so that everything bristles with this electric energy – even the vocals, which have a way of settling down right next to everything else, but without any too-stiff vocoded modes. And Dam Funk doesn't just do it alone – but invites in some great help here – including Q-Tip and Snoop Dogg on rhymes, plus old school funk legends Leon Sylvers III and Junie Morrison. Titles include "Junie's Transmission", "Virtuous Progression", "Glyde 2Nyte", "OBE", "Missing U", "I'm Just Tryin To Survive", "The Hunt & Murder Of Lucifer", "Surveillance Escape", and "Somewhere Someday".

Shola Adisa-Farrar & The Florian Pellissier QuartetLost Myself (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
We already love the music of Florian Pellisier from his excellent albums on the Heavenly Sweetness label – but we're really over the moon with the group here as they work alongside American singer Shola Adisa Farrar! Shola hails from Oakland, but has a globe-spanning sound to her music that really fits the release of the record on the Hot Casa label – a righteous take on jazz vocal modes that's very open to anything that Pellisier might want to bring to the table – which results in a beautiful record that we might put right up there with our favorite classics by singers like Carmen Lundy or Dee Dee Bridgewater! Like the best from both of those artists, there's a special, soulful sound going on here that's really transcendent – that rare kind of record that really unlocks the full power and potential of jazz vocals, especially when they're given just the right setting. Titles include "Evolution", "I Have A Dream", "Blue Chords", "Going Nowhere", "What A Night", and "Spirit" – plus great versions of "Feeling Good", and Fela's "Sorry Tears & Blood".

AirtoIdentity ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A soaring set of grooves from one of the world's greatest percussionists – a standout set as a leader from Airto, and a key set in his wonderful run of work from the 70s! The album's still got the loose, free feel of Airto's earliest work, and isn't nearly as crossover-oriented as some of the Flora Purim sets from the time – still strongly in a rootsy, earthy sort of vibe – and produced with a very respectful sound by Herbie Hancock. Herbie plays some Arp on the record, and Wayne Shorter brings in some soprano sax too – but the core elements of the album are Airto's range of percussion instruments, keyboards and piano from Egberto Gismonti, drums from Roberto, trombone from Raul DeSouza, and a bit of vocals from Flora. Titles include "Flora On My Mind", "Cafe", "The Magicians", "Tales From Home", "Identity", and "Encounter". CD

Monty AlexanderSaturday Night ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $13.99
Monty Alexander's always great in a trio, but we really love the pianist when he's trying to add a little something extra to the mix – as he does here in a quartet performance that features some nice added percussion from Robert Thomas! The tracks have that warm glow and open flow that Alexander first started bringing to his music in the 70s – with sensitive rhythm work here from Reggie Johnson on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – but the added percussion really helps things swing at a slightly higher level, giving a gentle kick to some cuts, while Monty's still able to open up with some warmly lyrical lines over the top. Titles include "Funji Mama", "Bolivia", "Body & Soul", "Close Enough", "SKJ", "Jamento", and "Little Darling". CD

✨✧ Alma Afrobeat EnsembleIt's Time ... CD
Slow Walk (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 17.99
Nice one from Barcelona's Alma Afrobeat Ensemble – with some righteous, timeless original tunes by the group – plus some stylistic boundary-busting collaborations with remix producers! The straighter Afrobeat numbers are pretty great – inspired by the legends of the style, blending western soul, funk and jazz with African rhythms and percussion – providing a danceable foundation for some pretty righteous lyrics – sung largely in English by Lagos-born vocalist Joe Psalmist. The remixes are fresh cuts, too, as opposed to re-workings of same album's other tracks – and they really bring in some diverse dancefloor style, too. Titles include "It's Time", "Live And Let's Live", "Shakedown", "Lost", "Siempre Prente (DJ Farmer Fiesta Remix)" and "Room Enough" featuring Ray Lugo (Terrifcos Remix) – plus "DWB Breakdown (DJ Quiet Cool Down Remix)", "Ain't It Time (DJ Phader Decale Remix)" and "Lost In Dub (Los Kalakos Dub Remix)".

Laurindo AlmeidaAcapulco '22 ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good ... $16.99
Excellent work from Laurindo – a truly wonderful album, played with small combo backing, which gives the set a jazzier feel than usual! Players include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Bob Cooper on tenor, Howard Roberts on guitar, and Shelly Manne, Milt Holland, and Chico Guerro on percussion – and although there's no credits for the arrangements on the album, the overall feel is similar to Roberts best work for Capitol, especially because Rowles' work on organ gives the record such a groovy sound! Titles include "Acapulco 1922", "Misirlou", "Satin Doll", "More", "Till Then", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "Desafinado". LP, Vinyl record album

AngelsMy Boyfriend's Back ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Good+ ... $6.99
A 60s girl group classic if there ever was one – and the only standout album from the lovely Angels! The group were known, of course, for the title hit "My Boyfriend's Back" – a quick-stepping number that was a runaway pop hit at the time. That tune kicks off the album, and is followed by a number of similarly done tunes – arranged by Leroy Glover and Alan Lorber with a jaunty vibe that really works well with the girls' vocals, and with a sound that's the sort of cut-above work you'd expect from Lorber and Glober! The album features a number of other originals – including "Thank You & Good Night", "World Without Love", "Hurdy-Gurdy Man", "Love Me Now", "Has Anybody Seen My Boyfriend", and "The Guy With The Black Eye".

Island, 1974. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A British art rock jam session, more or less, pulled together by Soft Machine bassist Kevin Ayers, who recruited Eno, John Cale and Nico, former bandmate Robert Wyatt, the enigmatic Rabbit (John Bundrick) on keyboards – more well known for his work with the Who – plus Mike Oldfield on guitar and a number of other guests and co-conspirators. A nice document of the scene a the time, with concise performances and a much tighter feel than you might imagine given the circumstances of the recording. 9 numbers in all, including "Driving Me Backwards", "Baby's On Fire", "Heartbreak Hotel", "The End", "May I?", "Shouting IN A Bucket Blues", "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes", "Everybody's Sometime And Some People's All The Time Blues" and "Two Goes Into Four".

✨✧ AzymuthOutubro ... CD
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $12.99
Wicked early work from Azymuth – one of the albums that the group recorded when they were really starting to take off on the global scene – burning strong with a soulful fusion vibe, lots of Brazilian rhythm currents, and always hitting all the right notes in their music! The sound here is still relatively spare, and sublimely reliant on the keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami – who plays Fender Rhodes, organ, and percussion on the set. Ivan Conti handles the main percussion, though – a great mix of tight work on the drum kit and rootsier, Airto-like elements that are totally great – and the whole thing's driven along nicely by bass and guitar from Alex Malheiros – a perfectly fused lineup that really hits their own groove on the set. Guests include Aleuda on percussion and vocals, Gordinho on surdo, and Doto on repinique – and titles include "Papasong", "Outubro", "Maracan", "Un Amigo", "Carta Pro Airto", and "Dear Limmertz". CD
Also available Outubro (180 gram vinyl) ... LP 14.99
