✨✧ SumyTryin To Survive (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Galaxy/Rush Hour (Netherlands), 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest, most offbeat bits of 80s funk you'll ever here – and a record that's pretty darn groovy as well! Sumy hails from Surinam, and recorded this unique criss-crossing of styles in the early 80s – with a vibe that's very much in keeping with his look on the cover, and a sound that's like the most compelling underground American material of the time! The sound is electric, but never totally electro – and Sumy's vocals often have this higher pitch that works great with the keyboards, almost in an LA early 80s mode. There's a few warmer moments, too – which makes for a really well-rounded set – and the whole thing's in English throughout, with titles that include "Marriage", "Goodthingman", "Escape With Me", "Sumy Funk Force", "Where Were You Last Night", "Bitch We Danced A Lot", and "Escape From The Earth". CD features bonus tracks "Going Insane" and "Funkin In Your Mind". CD

Gil MellePrimitive Modern/Quadrama ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... $19.99
An incredible record from an incredible group – one of the most unique-sounding combos of the 50s – headed by baritone saxophonist Gil Melle, and featuring a very compelling combination of instruments! Melle's horn is hardly the heavy honker you might expect – and instead he's sometimes as fluid and soulful as a tenor, other times even more spacious and modern than some of his most impressive 50s contemporaries on the instrument – matched here in brilliance by the amazing guitar work of Joe Cinderella – a player who seems to use the instrument more as a way to generate fast ringing tones, than any sort of usual groove! The mix of colors and tones is completely sublime – and sent homeward by the brilliant drumming of a young Ed Thigpen, and the bass of Billy Phillips. All tunes are originals, and mighty compelling – and titles include "Ironworks", "Dominica", "Mark One", and "Dedicatory Piece To The Geophysical Year Of 1957". Coupled with this album is another great quartet album, Quadrama – one that has more of a straight jazz feel, but which is also great. Titles on that one include "Full House", "Quadrama", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", and "Walter Ego". Great stuff all round! CD
