Red Coach/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
A lost funky classic from the Kool & The Gang side of the universe – cut by a group we've only seen on this one and only record – which was recorded for one of the sub-labels of De-Lite Records, home to the main Gang! There's clearly some mentorship taking place here – as the group works with producer Gene Redd, of K&TG fame – and they also serve up their own takes on some of the best early funky tracks of that group – while also using that inspiration to then move into some heavy james of their own – all with razor-sharp instrumentation, but a sound that's still plenty raw as well! This maturation of the funky 45 underground is still in its very early stages here – no disco touches or commercial overproduction – which really makes the group shine on cuts that include "Gold Smoke", "Funky Granny", "Who's Gonna Take The Weight", "Mama Said-Papa Said", and "Funky Gene-Ra-Tion". CD features some great bonus cuts – "The Bump (parts 1 & 2)", "Juice It Up (parts 1 & 2)", and the tracks "Get Down Get Stank" and "I Like What I Like", both recorded by the related Hot Line combo.

Al & The Kidd, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Unreleased versions of two classic tracks by Frank Hooker & Positive People – both close enough to the originals to keep all the best bits, but nicely fresh too! "Ooh Suga Wooga" is a tune that bumps along with a great boogie groove, and has this mighty nice organ solo in the middle – and "This Feelin" is a bit clubbier, with a soaring disco groove that's made the cut one of Frank's greatest numbers! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Mostly Other People Do The KillingForty Fort ... CD
Hot Cup, 2010. Used ... $8.99
One of most joyful and energetic young jazz ensembles around – a group that's both powerful and playful, reverent of its forbears yet stands facing forward – with a fantastic fourth album in Forty Fort! The group is again working in their unique blend of jazz styles, with nods to the great Blue Note and Impulse hard bop, swing and 60s avant garde sounds and more fiery modern bursts of noise and energy, and the dynamics somehow work together no matter how far the group reaches. Genuinely exciting stuff. We really love this group, and it pleases us that they're quite prolific and keep the greatness coming! Titles include group composer/bassist Moppa Elliot's originals "Pen Argyl", "Rough And Ready", "Blue Ball", "Nanticoke Coke", "Forty Fort". "Little Hope", "St Mary's Proctor", "Round Bottom, Square Top", and the Neal Hefti gem "Cute". CD

Mostly Other People Do The KillingLoafer's Hollow ... CD
Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Fantastic work from a group who never fail to blow our minds – and who also seem to try out something different with each new record, yet never falter at all in their progress forward! Mostly Other People Do The Killing may have one of the longest names in jazz, but they've also got a brash approach that really lives up to the cockiness of their name – a confident step in whatever direction they want, which always leads them down the best path. This time around, they're mixing both modern and trad jazz expressions with literary inspiration from writers who include Thomas Pynchon, Kurt Vonnegut, James Joyce, Cormac McCarthy, and David Foster Wallace – each of whom are listed as reference points for certain songs – which are based around snippets of their text, then transformed into a musical mode. The instrumentation is a very offbeat take on trad – with Jon Irabgon on tenor and sopranino sax, Steven Bernstein on trumpet and slide trumpet, Dave Taylor on bass trombone, Brandon Seabrook on banjo and electronics, Kevin Shea on drums, Ron Stabinsky on piano, and leader Moppa Elliott on bass. Titles include "Kilgore", "Hi Nella", "Honey Hole", "Bloomsberg", "Glen Riddle", "Mason & Dixon", and "Five". CD

Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A genius new step for Mostly Other People Do The Killing – a group who manages to give us something completely different every time around – yet never come across with any sense of gimmick at all! Instead, they just leap into fresh modes with all their best creative energy, and come up with something that has us falling in love with them all over again – as they do here, working only as a trio this time around – but awash in as much color as you'd guess from the album's cover! The group features the mighty Moppa Elliott on bass – as fantastic as always – with Ron Stabinsky on piano and Kevin Shea on drums – a familiar structure for a lineup, but one that comes across with a very inventive quality – that "something different" vibe that's marked MOPDTK from the start – as much in love with jazz tradition as it is willing to change it. Pianist Stabinsky is incredibly fluid – spinning out notes that almost feel like they're coming faster than he can think – sparks of color that explode on the keys of the piano, on titles that include "Yellow House", "Orangeville", "Green Briar", "Golden Hill", "Whitehall", and "Plum Run".

Hot Cup, 2007. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A killer second album from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – drawing from an even deeper well of both jazz traditions and ragged, anything goes charm than on their excellent debut – an enthralling blend of credible chops with unpredictable playfulness! Never shy about soloing, each player in the group really put down some masterful turns on Shamokin – from fluid, well trained beauty to some unhinged, exciting bursts of noise. These do it all, and they do it very well. Titles include "Handsome Eddy", "The Hop Bottom Hop", "Shamokin", "Dunkelbergers", "Lover", "Andover", Baden" and more – plus a closing with a riveting take on "Night In Tunisia". CD

Mostly Other People Do The KillingThis Is Our Moosic ... CD
Hot Cup, 2008. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A really exciting avant jazz set from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – a killer quartet who manage to roll through a wide variety of styles that show a true depth of understanding of some of the greatest jazz of the past half century – and have a heck of great time playing it! Ostensibly a tribute to Ornette Coleman, MOPDTK do a lot more than pay homage to a master on this album. They manage to roll in and out of elements of hard and post bop, nod reverently to the international 60s avant garde scenes, and so much more – all with infectious enthusiasm. It would be mess in lesser hands, but these guys pull it off! Players include Peter Evans on trumpet, Kevin Shea on drums, Jon Irabagon on sax and Moppa Elliot on double bass. Titles include "Drainlick", "Two Boot Jacks", "Fagundus", "The Bats In Belfry", "East Orwell", "My Delightful Muse", "Allentown" and more. CD

People's ChoiceAny Way You Wanna – The People's Choice Anthology 1971 to 1981 ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

People's ChoiceBoogie Down USA ... CD
Philadelphia International/Sony (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got some great soul tracks – filled with the heavy Philly soul of earlier days, stretched out a bit more professionally thanks to production help from Gamble & Huff. Frankie Brunson's great on vocals and keyboards, and the band grooves hard and tight on most of the album. Tracks include "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Mickey D's", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Don't Send Me Away", and "I'm Leaving You". CD

People's ChoiceWe Got The Rhythm ... CD
Philadelphia International/Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
One of the best of the later People's Choice albums, and one that does a nice job of keeping in touch with their roots as a funk group. Sure, there are a number of so-so disco tracks on here – like "Here We Go Again" and "Jam Jam Jam" – but there's also some nice funky numbers, like "We Got The Rhythm", "Cold Blooded & Downright Funky", and "Opus De Funk". Frankie Brunson's lead vocals come off sounding very nice, as does his groovy work on the keyboards – and Gamble & Huff produced the entire album, with arranging help from Brunson and Dexter Wansel.

People's WorkshopHouston Talent Expo 1982 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BBE (UK), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 26.99
The cover might look a bit understated, but the album's got plenty of depth and power – a rare set from the Texas underground of the early 80s – cut by a group who've clearly drunk deep from the same musical well that inspired Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers, and other cosmic soul talents of the 70s! As with Stevie and Roy, there's plenty of jazzy currents in the music of The People's Workshop – warm keyboards, sweet sax and flute, and waves of color that really come through the grooves and illuminate the deeper spirit of the vocals. There's a sense of collaboration here that's really special – almost a James Mason vibe at times – all with a sense of sophistication that's quite different than the rootsier sounds you might normally expect from Texas soul groups. Titles include "Save Your Money", "A Song For The Children", "Love Love", "Let's Get High", "Chocolate Coated People Song", and "This Song". LP, Vinyl record album

PRO (People Rock Outfit)Blacky Joe (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
EMI/Soundway (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
The People Rock Outfit really knock it out of the park with this dark-edged classic from the 70s – one of the heaviest albums we've heard from the Nigerian scene at the time, and a record that's almost got more of a South African spirit overall! These guys effortlessly mix together funk and psych – the former in these stark, forward-moving rhythnm that are mighty nice – the latter in these long-spun guitar lines that have a nice fuzzy vibe, as the solos cascade effortlessly from the hands of the guitarist! Vocals are all in English – sometimes with a slow-stepping approach that's very moody, more often in a lively spirit to match the rhythms – and the record also features a bit of guest work on moog and Hammond, which really adds a lot to the sound. Titles include "Blacky Joe", "Mary Jane", "Faded Jeans", "Freedom", "Movement", "Tell Me", "Midnight Woman", and "Looking Round". LP, Vinyl record album
