Soul Of A Woman
Daptone, 2017. New Copy
The fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon! The set's maybe the ultimate setting for Sharon's incredible voice – as it features both her longtime core combo, the Dap-Kings – as well as additional backings from the ... CD

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy

LP, Vinyl record album
Kindred Live (colored vinyl)
Sessions Sounds, 2017. New Copy
A fantastic step forward for Detroit's hip Will Sessions combo – a set that's every bit as funky as their previous work, but also has a soaring fusion vibe as well! Amp Fiddler's with the group on keyboards – and with his help, they hit sort of a Bitches Brew vibe here – a style ... LP, Vinyl record album

One Of These Days
Haggis (UK), 2017. New Copy
The Haggis Horns use plenty of their namesake instrument here – but what really makes the record great is its funky rhythmic core – a rock-solid rhythm section that has the larger group rivaling some of the best deep funk combos of the contemporary scene! The Haggis Horns are no ... CD
Soul Time
Daptone, 2011. New Copy
Damn damn damn – maybe the funkiest album ever from Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings! The group have always been great, but there's something here that goes even farther than usual – an especially funky snap on the drums at the bottom, even on more laidback tunes – and a stone ... CD
Cold World
Daptone, 2014. New Copy
A great one from Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens – a record that's done with deeper raw soul roots than their Daptone debut – but which still holds onto all the group's uplifting gospel spirit! The best records on Daptone are big on old school soul and funk reverence, but show ... CD
Curao
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy
Will "Quantic" Holland has really turned out to be a hell of a fellow – a guy we first fell in love with as a beatmaker, then as a funk artist – and now as one of the few people who can ever mix grooves with global elements and make the whole thing come out sounding right! ... CD
Way Home (clear vinyl)
Colemine, 2017. New Copy Gatefold
A fantastic album from this increasingly hip combo – a group who were already pretty darn funky at their start, but who've just kept on moving into really amazing territory over the years! The sound here is maybe the equivalent of the depth and shifts that El Michels brought to the deep funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
Let It Out EP
Bastard Jazz (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
Beautifully layered vocals, trumpet, and beats from Miles Bonny – a set that reminds us that he's still one of the freshest talents in the contemporary underground! All the tracks here were recorded in KC, but have a future soul sound that can easily rival work on either side of the Atlantic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cipher
Freestyle (UK), 2017. New Copy
A fantastic album of funky soundtrack grooves – one that was recently recorded by guitarist Andy Tolman, but which instantly takes us back to the best 70s film scores by artists like Quincy Jones, Johnny Pate, or Lalo Schfrin! Like both of those giants at their best, Andy works here in a ... CD
Electric Cowbell, 2017. New Copy
The CSC Funk Bland pay funky live band homage to the mighty Gang Starr! LP, Vinyl record album
Legere (France), 2017. New Copy
A great introduction to the voice of Gabriel Tajeu – a singer who has this way of grabbing us right from the very first note, with a vibe that's classic enough to have made him huge way back in the 70s! Gabriel's music has a sound that's as sunny as the image on the cover – a style ... CD
Hard Steppin EP
Colemine, 2009. New Copy Gatefold
Hard Steppin funky sounds from Ikebe Shakedown – solid stuff from the fertile Brooklyn scene – blending hard hitting 70s funk & soul with both stateside and African influences! The group is young and doesn't take the task of honoring the pioneers of these sounds lightly – ... LP, Vinyl record album
My Name Is Nicole Willis
Persephone (UK), 2017. New Copy
A wonderfully fresh change for the mighty Nicole Willis – who works here with the decades-old UMO Jazz Orchestra – who have been as important to the Finnish scene as Willis has with her music in recent years! The sound is still in that mix of soul and funk that Nicole's given us on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cool Green, 2017. New Copy
One of the most soul-based albums in years from drummer Stanton Moore – a set based around the classic songs of Allen Toussaint, and which features help from a whole host of Nola guest stars too! Tunes are tight, funky, and are a mix of vocal and instrumental numbers – with help from ... LP, Vinyl record album
