✨✧ Boogaloo Joe JonesLegends Of Acid Jazz – Boogaloo Joe/Right On Brother ... CD
Prestige, 1969/1970. Used ... $14.99
2 of Boogaloo Joe's best and rarest albums on one CD – guitar jazz funk at its best! First up is Boogaloo Joe – a killer session of funky guitar jazz, and the record that gave Ivan "Boogaloo" Joe Jones his nickname! The set's a full-on wailer that really blows away Joe's first two on Prestige – breaking out ouf the box with a killer lineup that includes Rusty Bryant on tenor, Bernard Purdie on drums, and Sonny Phillips on organ – all working with Joe's incredibly tight guitar lines to craft some wicked tunes that take soul jazz firmly into the sound of the 70s! Titles include "Boogaloo Joe", "People Are Talking", "Dream On Little Dreamer", and "Atlantic City Soul". Right On Brother is next – and is Ivan's first truly sublime album – a set that showed the world that he was easily one of the greatest jazz guitarists of his generation – able to spin out single-note jams with a speed and dexterity that few others could match! The groove here is totally great and very righteous – heavy drums from Bernard Purdie, wailing organ from Charles Earland, and saxophone from Rusty Bryant – all cooking together in the best early 70s Prestige jazz funk mode! Titles include "Right On", "Brown Bag", "Things Ain't What They Used To Be", and "Poppin". CD

✨✧ Sonny Stitt & Don PattersonLegends Of Acid Jazz – Funk You/Soul Electricity ... CD
Prestige, 1968. Used ... $24.99
2 classic albums by the team of Don Patterson and Sonny Stitt – back to back on one CD! Funk You is a very cooking set by organist Patterson – and one that has him leading a 2-horn frontline that includes Sonny Stitt and Charles McPherson. Pat Martino's on guitar, and Patterson's longtime drummer Billy James plays with a nice free style. Lots of nice tracks – like "My Man String", "Funk In 3/4", "Ratio & Proportion", and "Little Angie". Soul Electricity is titled as such because the record has Sonny picking up the Varitone sax – which gives his solos a nice pinched electric sound, a bit like that of Eddie Harris at the time. Matched with that sound is the sound of Don Patterson's organ, which is backed up here by Billy Butler's guitar and Billy James' drums. Butler's just making his comeback here, and he's in fine form, with tight bouncy solos, and a good groove. Tracks include "All The Things You Are", "Candy", "Stella By Starlight", and "Lover Man". CD

Acid Jazz (UK), 1991. Used ... $6.99
A great set of some of the more jazz-oriented tracks cut by the Acid Jazz label – all pulled from the imprint's early days, when nearly everything they issued was great, and pulled from the fresh groovy sound of the London scene! There's some of the label's best early singles on here – like the massive spiritual jazz jam "Rejoice In Righteousness" by Bukky Leo, the Latin-tinged "Mr. PC" by Snowboy, the tight boppish "Homegrown" by Ed Jones, and the jazz funk classic "Sphynx" by The Brand New Heavies. 9 cuts in all!

VariousTotally Wired & Illicit Grooves – Acid Jazz – The Birth Of A Scene 1987 to 1990 ... CD
Acid Jazz/BGP (UK), Late 80s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Tremendous grooves from the earliest (and best) years of the acid jazz scene – all recorded at a time when London was exploding with sounds from the 60s and 70s, and turning out some of the hippest music on the planet! Although the term "acid jazz" was soon mishandled and mis-managed here in the US, the earliest days of the movement were really a tremendous time in London – a period when folks returned to the core elements that made funk, jazz, and soul great – and shook off all of the too-electric and too-stiff modes that had crept in during the 80s! Most of the work here is in a really spare, stripped-down funky mode – a cross between soul jazz of the 60s and blacksploitation funk of the 70s, with possibly a few more contemporary elements thrown into the mix. And in these years way before the current deep funk revival, what's even more important is the way these songs were produced – with a warmth that other groups hadn't had in years, and a real love of the way these tracks might have sounded in older studios a few decades before. The package contains a number of key rare singles from the Acid Jazz label, other album tracks, and even a few classics that had a big influence on the London scene. Titles include the rare pre-Acid Jazz single "Got To Give" by The Brand New Heavies, the sublime "Rejoice In Righteousness" by Bukky Leo Quintet, and the tracks "Cut & Run" by Lay Zee Muthas, "Like A Gun" by King Truman, "The Killer" by Night Trains, "People Get Ready" by The Brand New Heavies, "Haw Right Now" by Patrice Rushen, "Earthly Powers" by Man Called Adam, "Mr PC" by Snowboy, "Spinning Wheel" by New Jersey Kings, "Let The Good Times Roll" by The Quiet Boys, and "Mighty Mouse" by Caesar Frazier. Loads of great notes too – a really detailed look at the London scene at the end of the 80s! CD

✨✧ Don Patterson & Booker ErvinLegends Of Acid Jazz – Exciting New Organ Of Don Patterson – plus bonus tracks ... CD
Prestige, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tasty set of extended organ/tenor grooves – one full album, plus bonus tracks! The core album here is The Exciting New Organ Of Don Patterson – a well-titled session, given the strong early groove of organist Don! At a time when some of his contemporaries were tightening things up on the Hammond, going for shorter tunes aimed at the jukebox and radio crowd, Don Patterson was a great reminder that the organ was best used on longer jamming tracks – tunes that stretched out nicely with a style that was heard best in the clubs, where an organ player could really do his thing. Patterson's trio here is quite stripped down – just drums from Billy James, and tenor from Booker Ervin – another player who always knows what to do with plenty of space! Titles include versions of "The Good Life", "When Johnny Comes Marching Home", and "Oleo", plus two Patterson originals – "Up In Betty's Room" and "S'Bout Time". Added to these tracks are 2 more – the 16 minute "Hip Cake Walk", which features alto from Leonard Houston too, plus "Love Me With All Your Heart". CD

Matt BerryPhantom Birds ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Completely wonderful work from Matt Berry – an actor that most folks know for his hilarious performances in a number of TV shows – but also a surprisingly strong singer/songwriter, with a down to earth and honest vibe that's completely different than his role on screen! In fact, forget all about Matt Berry on screen – even though we love his work there so much – because this Matt Berry is a completely different individual, one who paints these songs that are often surprisingly dark, but never dreary – and surprisingly honest, both in the lyricism and the execution – which often has Berry singing with a style that's far less ironic than his delivery of his lines. Matt handles most instrumentation – piano, organ, mellotron from his collection of vintage keyboards – plus guitars and harmonica – next to a bit of pedal steel and drums from BJ Cole and Craig Blundell, respectively. Titles include "Man Of Doom", "Something In My Eye", "Intermission", "Hail To The King", "Covered In Clowns", "You Danced All Night", and "Phantom Birds". CD

Acid Jazz (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 25.98
Excellent work from The Brand New Heavies – one of those groups that made us first want to get into the record store business many years ago! The passage of time hasn't dimmed their genius at all – and right as at the start, the music here is flowing with classic funk and soul influences, but leaned up into a groove that's very contemporary – and which continues to stand head and shoulders above the generations of artists who've been inspired by their sound! As you might notice by the cover, the core duo of Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy are the key force of the sound – but their longtime partner N'Dea Davenport is on vocals for many tracks on the set – replaced at a few points by guests who include Laville, Angie Stone, Angela Ricci, Beverley Knight, and Siedah Garrett – a nicely shifting lineup that almost give the record the variety of a classic Incognito set. Titles include "Stupid Love", "Just Believe In You", "Get On The Right Side", "Little Dancer", "It's My Destiny", "Getaway", "Beautiful", "Wired Up", "Together", and "Dontchawanna".

A rare bit of gospel from the Louisville scene at the start of the 80s – but a set that's also got plenty of secular soul appeal too – thanks in part to the righteous message in Lamont's lyrics, which would fit with some of the deeper sounds of 70s soul – and thanks also to the wicked instrumentation, which has this great indie vibe, again with plenty of wonderful 70s soul elements! The group's got bits of organ, chromatic guitar, and some gentle basslines that really guide the way – but it's definitely the lead vocals of Lamont Butler that make the whole thing come together – a singer with a sound that's every bit as hip as his look on the cover, and a really universal way of making a message. Titles include "Time For A Change", "Ungodly War", "Smile", "Brighter World", "Thank You Lord", and "Love One Another". CD

Mark MorrissTaste Of Mark Morriss ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2015. Used ... $0.99
Solo work from Mark Morriss – formerly a member of The Bluetones, but maybe even more striking here as an artist on his own! The album features a compelling mix of covers – songs originally recorded by Jess Conrad, Scott Walker, OMD, Buffalo Springfield, Jesus & Mary Chain, Weezer, and even Madonna – but all given a very personal spin by Morriss! Mark's got this way of weaving together different 60s influences – a bit of blue-eyed pop, touches of mod or psych instrumentation, even some slightly folksy currents – all to suit the modes of the individual songs – with a mode that maybe even gets past the idea of any sort of single style for the record. Titles include "Duchess", "Self Control", "Angel", "Almost Gold", "Don't Let Go", "Love Comes Quickly", "Rock & Roll Woman", "Souvenir", "This Pullover", and "Lucretia (My Reflection)". CD

Hard hitting funky 45 material – supposedly recorded by a "lost" funk group from the 70s, but actually the James Taylor Quartet playing under a different name! That little bit of name trickery doesn't stop the album from being a nice batch of funky jazz tracks, though – with lots of hard drums and nice organ solos in the lead, hitting hard like the best early work by the Taylor Quartet, but with a few nice 70s funk touches in the mix! Lots of nice tracks, including "Dream Waves", "On Or Off", "Green Screen", and "Smokin". CD

✨✧ Leroy HutsonLeroy Hutson Anthology 1972 to 1984 ... CD
Curtom/Acid Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive tribute to one of our favorite soul singers of all time – one of the hippest cats of the 70s, and an artist that we never tire of hearing! Leroy Hutson got his start working with Chicago soul legends Donny Hathaway and Curtis Mayfield, but he quickly became a strong force on his own – a singer with an incredible voice, an arranger with a fantastic vision, and a producer who was able to create sounds in the studio that were as sophisticated as they were soulful! In that respect, Leroy is right up there with Roy Ayers for the "whole package" of greatness – and like Roy, he can also be funky and open up a groove, while still bringing plenty to play on a mellow cut too – something that few other artists can do this well. And although we grew up in Chicago, it wasn't until 80s UK rare groove interest in Hutson that we really learned of his genius – which makes it all the more fitting that this UK set does such a great job of presenting his music. The set features 19 stellar tracks in all – with titles that include "Positive Forces", "Lucky Fellow", "Don't It Make You Feel Good", "Love The Feeling", "Love Oh Love", "Think I'm Falling In Love", "Right Or Wrong", "Closer To The Source", "Cool Out", "All Because Of You (single version)", "Never Know What You Can Do", "Love The Feeling", "So In Love With You", "Lover's Holiday", "Get To This", and "Time Brings On A Change".

Curtom/Acid Jazz (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little set from Leroy Hutson – proof that he was still going strong through all his years at Curtom! The vibe here is a bit different than his first few records, and you might be suspicious with Leroy wearing a disco shirt on the front – but the sound is wonderful, and only shows Hutson blossoming into a more sophisticated singer, songwriter, and producer – one with a great ear for the careful balance needed for the modern soul generation! The shift is a bit like Roy Ayers on his late 70s work for Polydor – and Hutson is definitely on a par with Ayers in our book – we'd always put the two side by side for the strength of their work in the 70s. Seminal tracks include "So Nice" and "Right or Wrong" – both of which are amongst some of his best work ever – and other tracks include "Unforgettable", "Funk In My Life", and "Lonely Without You".

Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A monster! If you buy one Latin record this year – make it this one – because it's one of the greatest ever recorded! Ray's late 60s Acid album is a landmark recording – a sublime mixture of Latin jazz, percussion, and soul – grooving hard in a variety of styles, and always hitting the money on every single track. The title cut "Acid" is one of those tunes you'll be playing until you're locked up in a nursing home – and the rest of the record is equally great – with cuts like the bouncy groover "Soul Drummers", the tasty boogaloo "El Nuevo Barretto", and the extended "Espiritu Libre", a great Latin jazz track, with very "out" piano!

✨✧ Tommy Chase QuartetHard! ... CD
BGP (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A well-titled album from drummer Tommy Chase – and an overlooked bit of hardbop from the 80s scene in the UK! Although recorded just a few years before the Acid Jazz boom in London, the record's got a much more old school feel overall – one that recalls the sound of Blue Note or Prestige at the end of the 50s – with Chase kicking it hard in a quartet that features piano from Nick Weldon, bass from Andrew Cleyndert, and some great work on tenor and alto sax from Alan Barnes – who really gets plenty of space to shine in the spotlight. The feel's a bit like some of Johnny Griffin's earliest albums – with the sax really driving the rest of the quartet – and titles include versions of Duke Jordan's "No Problem", Gigi Gryce's "Minorty", Sonny Criss' "Blue Sunset", and Tadd Dameron's "Ladybird".

Gil Evans, Jerry Dammers, & OthersAbsolute Beginners (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Virgin/Universal (UK), 1986. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
A great snapshot of jazzy London in the years before the acid jazz explosion of the late 80s – and a surprisingly great soundtrack that's stood the test of time much more than the actual film! The music here represents a jazz-based undercurrent of the London scene that was already turning its ears back in time – to a pre-mod era of the late 50s, which is the setting for Colin MacInnes original novel used for the film – portrayed here in a pastiche of vocal and instrumental songs that often have a fair bit of classic touches! Gil Evans was brought in for most of the instrumentals, and turns out some really sparkling charts that have all the charm of his best work of the 50s – and other contemporary artists do a pretty great job themselves – at least on the more jazz-based numbers. Evans numbers include versions of Charles Mingus' "Boogie Stop Shuffle" and "Better Git It In Your Soul", plus his own "Va Va Vaoom" – and the better jazzy tunes includes the excellent "Killer Blow" by Sade, plus "Have You Ever Had It Blue" by The Style Council, "That's Motivation" and "Absolute Beginners" by David Bowie, "Rodrigo Bay" by Working Week, "Selling Out" by Slim Gaillard, and "Riot City" by Jerry Dammers. 2LP UK version – with much more instrumental music than the American version!

GazzaraOne ... CD
Irma (Italy), 1995. Used ... $6.99
Italian pianist Francesco Gazzara is one of the best electric keyboardists behind the 90's wave of acid jazz to come out of Italy, and this first album on Irma is a tight batch of jazzy tracks with lots of Fender Rhodes, Moog, and Hammond keyboard lines. As usual with these Italian releases, there's some vocal cuts that are a little weak, but the instrumental ones more than make up for them, and the record's got a nice sweet electric keyboard jazz sound in keeping with the best releases on Irma. James Taylor joins the band on keyboards on one track, and the set list includes "Keep Yourself Together", "Sexuality", "Joy In Your Eyes", "Change", "Our Man In Rio", "West 42nd Street", "Just Some Philly Sound", and "Gato". This CD version is remastered from the LP, and includes some remixes and one extra track! CD

He teams up with Jay Rodriguez here though, for a set with a great NY acid jazz vibe, equal parts sampled beats and live playing, with crisp production that never gets too slick, and some nice soulful vocals on a number of cuts.

Premonition, 2002. Used ... $7.99
The long-awaited house-oriented project from Chicago jazzman Kahil El'Zabar – a righteous fusion of Afro-centric jazz and dance, and a vision he's been expressing for years! El'Zabar first experimented with mixing jazz and house way back in the late 80s – and his efforts at the time, although unrecorded, sent ripples around the world, and even had a strong effect on the birth of Acid Jazz in the London scene (Kahil was actually referenced as a godfather in one of the first compilations of work on the Acid Jazz label!) Unfortunately, it almost seems like the idea's waited too long to happen – as the past decade or so has seen countless other expressions of this idea – so much so that El'Zabar's ideas seem a bit dated by now, and don't really match music of this nature coming out of Paris, London, and Tokyo over the past few years. Still, it is nice to finally see an album of this music from Kahil – and it's interesting to hear Chicago players like Ari Brown and Fareed Haque in this context. The record features work by Primeridian as well – and titles include "Return Of The Lost Tribe", "Papa's Bounce", "Where Do You Want To Go", "Ornette", "Venus", and "This Little Light Of Mine". CD

Bukky's got a resume that includes work with Fela and Tony Allen – and he's working here in a mode that's very similar to recent work by the latter – an updated version of older Afro Funk styles, augmented slightly by additional keyboards and a warmer, more dancefloor-styled groove – but a core sound that's highly rhythmic, very acoustic, and filled with great work on guitar, sax, and flute! Bukky's also singing a fair bit on the record too – calling out the lyrics with a raspy warmth that's a lot more personal than some of Tony Allen's more abstract vocalizations on recent work – and the record's got a really focused feel that makes it one of the best takes on Afro Funk we've heard in a good number of years!

Beautiful stuff! Reminiscence Quartet were one of the first modern groups to mix Brazilian music and more progressive dancefloor rhythms, and they transformed the sound of mid 90s acid jazz with their great warm jazzy grooves! This new release appears to be a compilation of sorts – although some of the tracks seem to have a newly remixed quality to them, but we're not sure (liner notes always appreciated, thanks!) Whatever the case, though, the material is excellent – and the band grooves hard with lots of sweet Fender Rhodes keyboards, snapping lively Brazilians rhythms, and some great vocals by Salome De Bahia and Nancy Danino. Tracks include "Onde Anda Meu Amor", "Gannabara's Cafe", "Roda Mundo", "Peace of Mind", "Rua De Lisboa", and "Un Premier Jour Sans Toi". CD

A really wonderful bit of Japanese soul – one of the jazziest and most laidback records we've heard from the Japanese scene in years! Ryusenkei are a combo with a female lead vocalist and supporting instrumentation in a real 70s-styled blend of keyboards, guitar, and percussion – all touched with a bit of strings. The overall sound really takes us back to the best indie soul of the late acid jazz years – that rare point in the mid 90s when only a few records ever caught our ears as being worthy of the kind of soul we'd liked from years back, and even then most of them were from overseas sources like this one! The lyrics are all in Japanese, but that shouldn't bother you at all because the overall sound is totally great – a mix of smooth funk and sweet R&B, done at a level that almost recalls some of the best work from the British scene from more than a decade ago.

Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
A way way deeper set than the first volume of Bay Area Funk – and a collection that shows that things got pretty heavy on the San Francisco and Oakland scenes of the 70s! A good number of the tracks here are instrumental, and show some wonderful interplay between the trippier sides of funky jazz and the harder sides of soul going on in the Bay Area back in the day – killer music from the fringes that often got lost in the shuffle of all the better-known music coming out on the bigger labels! The work here is all from very tiny labels – expertly selected and all officially cleared by the Luv N Haight team with keen respect for the artists involved – and in a way, the package has set a new high standard for the label! A tremendous discovery, and filled with tracks we'd never heard before – titles that include "Stop Look Listen" by Primevil, "Poor Sad Child (part 1)" by The Windjammers, "Born To Live With Heartache" by Mary Love, "Move In The Room" by Dawn & Sunset, "Ebony" by Project Soul, "Acid Lady" by San Francisco TKOs, "Hip Breakin" by Little Denise Stevenson, "Devil's On The Run" by Uptights Band, "Brute Strength" by Mile Selesia, and "Lenient With My Love" by The Relatives.

The music here is notable as being the first work of Paul Hardcastle – before he broke off into a solo act on his own – and the groups also feature some great vocals from Derek Green – a strong soul singer with a style that was in keeping with some of the other British club type funk of the same time, like work on the Elite label! This stuff's better than you'd think – with a soulful little groove that kind of points the way towards Sade and Loose Ends, without sounding as dated as it should – a great surprise that makes the package well worth digging.

The amazing first album from Third Ear Band – a set that's maybe even more distinct than some of their later, better-known recordings! These guys emerged in the British scene at the end of the 60s – but they're not really psych, or prog – and although they have a love of ancient sounds, they're also not in any of the territory that was being explored by acid folk groups of the time! Instead, they've got this wonderful all-acoustic blend of reeds, stringed instruments, and percussion – all with a feel that seems to link together centuries with its own organic energy, but which also gives a bit of a nod to freer jazz elements of the time. At points, these guys almost sound like a looser, more-jamming version of Penguin Cafe Orchestra – but that's only part of the approach – as things are very unique throughout, in a blend of tablas, hand drums, oboe, recorder, viola, violin, cello, and slide pipes – served up on titles that include "Druid One", "Lark Rise", "Ghetto Raga" and "Stone Circle".

Strut (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A fantastic look at the groundbreaking sounds of the Disques Debs label – one of the most important companies producing music in the French Caribbean – and an imprint whose impact was strongly felt on the other side of the Atlantic as well! The core of these grooves is that compelling biguine rhythm that flowed from Guadeloupe – almost a mix of Latin and jazz, but with a different sort of vibe of its own – which was then interwoven with elements from Cuban, European, and African styles amidst the initial decade or so of recordings on this set! Debs had strong ties with Paris, and a bit with the West African scene – and their recorded legacy almost follows old colonial paths, but in reverse – creating this wonderful criss-crossing of cultures amidst their grooves. The package is wonderful – loads of vintage photos and great notes in the best Strut Records way – and titles include "Douce Kombass" by Henri Debs Quintet, "Mr Morin" by Joseph Lacides, "Lan Mise" by Geno Exilie, "Feeling Happy" by Cyril Dias Et Son Orchestre, "Ces P'Tits Je T'Aime" by Daniel Forestal Et Sa Guitare, "Assez Fait Cancan" by Guy Conquette, "Stanislas" by Eric Virgal, "Meringue Mondey" by Remy Mondey, "Si I Bon Di I Bon" by Le Ry-Co Jazz, "Salvana" by Dolor Et Les Diables Du Rhythme, and "Van Van" by Henri Guedon Et Les Contesta.

Armando SciasciaViolin Reactions (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Vedette/Roundtable (Australia), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99 26.98
The definitely got the title right on this one – as the album's got plenty of violin, but never in the way you might expect – as the instrument is used in all these weird and wonderful ways that really make the record a treat! There's neither classical nor jazz-based violin approaches at play – and instead, Armando Sciascia almost seems to be trying to find all the weird, offbeat sounds he can from the instrument – but in ways that are sometimes funky, sometimes dark, and always pretty darn compelling! Some tracks have these chugging rhythms that come from percussion by Tullio De Piscopo – best known for his later club work – others have a spare, moody vibe with offbeat string passages echoing in space – almost as if they're electronic, with weirdly spacey qualities. The record is quite experimental for a sound library session – and titles include "Reagente B", "Acidocloroscuccinico", "Atomo Asimmetrico", "Nucleofilo", "Planctonico", "Enantiomorfo", and "Substrato Ax".

Marcos e Sergio Paulo Valle with AzymuthO Fabuloso Fittipaldi – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Mercury/Le Vieux Renard (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A totally rare gem from Marcos Valle – and one of his most unusual recordings! The album is from the soundtrack from a film about the famous Brazilian race car driver Emerson Fittipaldi – and the tracks are a very unusual mix of music by Valle with some spoken passages that might be interviews from the film. You may recognize the theme "Fittipaldi Show", as it's a wonderful groover played by Azymuth that's shown up in a number of comps over the years – and most of the rest of the tracks are played by Azymuth, too – and they have an incredible sound that's very different than the group's later work, and which sounds a lot more like Valle's work from the time. The sound is spacious and soaring, but with lots of jazzy and groovy elements – and titles include "Vinheta I", "Fittipaldi Show", "Vitoria", "Rindt", and "Acidente". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousPuissance 13 + 2 ... LP
Musea/Lion, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wicked collection of French prog and fusion from the start of the 70s – all with a jazzy or folky vibe that shows just how wonderfully warm the French scene was at the time – and how it could be very different than similar music coming from Germany, England, or Italy during the same stretch! All tracks here were recorded live, and although the groups are varied, the sound is surprisingly unified – with loads of funky fusion moments that are kind of an offbeat, outside take on styles that American groups were just beginning to explore – with some especially strong keyboard moments that point the way towards directions that Herbie Hancock would take a few years later. There's a few other tunes that bring in acoustic elements, almost with an acid folk sound – and titles include "Charles" by Catharsis, "Arkham" by Spectre, "Mekanik Kommando" by Magma, "Informers Blues" by Zabu, "Jappy's Boogie" by Solitude, "All's So Comic" by Ergo Sum, "I'm On My Way" by Voyage, "Promenade"b y Claude Engel, "Aria Populaire" by Catherine Ribeiro & Alpes, and "Iguane" by Alain Markusfeld.
