Carmen LundyCode Noir ... CD
Afrasia, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Fantastic work from Carmen Lundy – one of our favorite jazz singers of all time, and an artist who keeps on giving us her best as the years go on! This album's definitely some of Carmen's best – as it features the singer working with a wonderful group that includes Jeff Parker on guitar, Patrice Rushen on piano, Ben Williams on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums – a tight core combo who really find a way to push Lundy's energy even more than usual – while Carmen herself handles other keyboards with her vocals, and serves especially righteous material! There's a bit more politics here than on previous records – perfect for the spirit of the moment – but Carmen also mixes a lot of warmth and love into her music as well. Titles include "Black & Blues", "Afterglow", "Whatever It Takes", "I Keep Falling", "The Island The Sea & You", "Have A Little Faith", and "Another Chance". CD

Carmen LundyModern Ancestors ... CD
Afrasia, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
To our ears, there's nothing like a record from Carmen Lundy – one of the few jazz singers who can hold us completely rapt over the years, and who keeps on coming up with wonderful albums like this one! Carmen's voice has always been fantastic, but in recent years she's got an even more majestic sense of her instrument – tuned here to some tunes that really continue the more powerful lyrical approach she's used over the past decade or so – with an agenda that's much larger than herself, and has righteous elements we never would have found in her earlier music! Lundy's also become quite the instrumentalist too – and also handles guitar, Fender Rhodes, and even some larger orchestrations – in a lineup that also features piano from Julius Rodriguez, bass from Curtis Lundy and Kenny Davis, and percussion from Mayra Casales. Titles include "A Time For Peace", "Burden Down Burden Down", "Jazz On TV", "Meant For Each Other", "Still", and "Affair Brazil". CD

✨✧ Carmen LundySomething to Believe In ... CD
Justin Time, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really sweet set of jazzy vocals from Carmen Lundy – one of our favorite singers of recent years! This set finds Carmen stepping back a bit to her roots as a soulful interpreter of standards on a number of tunes, all of which blend with Carmen's traditionally-minded originals quite effortlessly! As always, there's a wonderfully soulful feel throughout – warmly flowing jazz, with a sensibility that stretches back to some of our favorite independent work of the 70s, and which clearly puts Carme in a league with Dee Dee Bridgewater as one of the hippest jazz vocalists ever! Carmen's originals include "In Love Again", "Something To Believe In", "A Gift Of Love", "Wild Child" and more. She also takes a handle on Gershwin's "I Love You Porgy", Michel Legrand's "Windmills Of Your Mind", Rodgers & Hammerstein's "It Might As Well Be Spring", James Moody's "Moody's Mood For Love" and more. Carmen's unfussy arrangements, and breezy delivery is solidly accompanied by Curtis Lundy's bass, Victor Lewis's drums, but some loose accompaniment on violin, Fender Rhodes, sax, piano and percussion. Nice! CD

✨✧ Carmen LundySoul To Soul ... CD
Afrasia, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We've loved Carmen Lundy since the very first time we heard her voice – and that love has only continued to grow over the decades, as she's given us a tremendous run of great records and wonderful music! This time around, Lundy's still strongly in the jazz side of the spectrum, but also brings in a bit of the soul music promised in the title – working in sharp focus on a set of well-penned original tunes that really open up her vocals – most of which feature the legendary Patrice Rushen on keyboards, too! There's an understated brilliance here that really lives up to Lundy's legacy – a way of putting over a tune without every overdoing it – a lesson that's been learned in jazz, but which also has a great impact here in a slightly different setting. Other players on the record include Warren Wolf on vibes, Geri Allen on Fender Rhodes and piano, Darryl Hyall on bass, and Bennie Maupin on soprano sax – and titles include "Grace", "Kindred Spirits", "Life Is A Song In Me", "Soul To Soul", "When Will They Learn", and "Grateful (parts 1 & 2)".

✨✧ Curtis LundyPurpose ... CD
Justin Time, 2002. Used ... $11.99
A wonderful set from Curtis Lundy – his third album as a leader, and a warmly intimate set that steps off of the strength of his Against All Odds album, moving into new territory, yet never losing its soul! Curtis is working here with a group that includes John Hicks on piano, Billy Hart on drums, and Steve Nelson on vibes – crafting a sound that's a bit more modern than some of his previous work, with more angles and sharp edges, yet never so many as to lose the warmth and soul that we've come to love in his work. The record's incredibly fresh, with a sound that reminds us of some of Bobby Hutcherson's best experiments in the early 70s, pushing into territory that's distinctly Lundy's own. Titles include "Pas De Trois", "Blues For JA", "Carmen", "Walk In Serendipity", "Snake Eyes", and "Shape Shifting". CD

Dee AlexanderWild Is The Wind ... CD
Blujazz, 2008. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Amazing work from singer Dee Alexander – a wonderfully soulful album of jazz vocals, and one that we'd rank right up there with our favorite records by Carmen Lundy or Dee Dee Bridgewater! Dee's a singer who's worked in Chicago for years, but we've honestly only begun to appreciate her talents of late – possibly because she's really hipped up her sound a lot over the years, picking up a range of spiritual, soulful influences that push her music to a whole new level – as you might have heard on her recent collaboration with IG Culture. The music on the set is wonderful too – work by Chicago players we know, but have never heard this strongly before – grooving in modal and soulful modes behind Dee's great vocals, with a lineup that includes Miguel De La Cerna and Michael Logan on piano, Harrison Bankhead on bass, and Leon Joyce on drums and percussion. Titles include versions of two tunes by AACM member Henry Huff – "Live" and "You & I" – plus the Alexander originals "Long Road Ahead", "Rossingnol", "Butterfly", and "C U On The Other Side". CD

Michele HendricksKeepin Me Satisfied ... CD
Muse/Breaktime (Japan), 1988. Used ... $9.99
Really lovely work from Michelle Hendricks – a set that's quite different than the work of her famous father Jon, but equally groovy in the end! Michelle's more of a direct vocalist than her dad – less inclined to vocalese, and more lyrically directed, but in a really wonderful way that's often drenched in soul – hitting some of the same hip indie modes that Carmen Lundy was pushing at the same time. There's a bit of scatting on the set, and Jon guests on one track with a boppish feel – but the best numbers are almost those that come off straight, with a really great sort of soulful energy. Players include Slide Hampton on trombone, Claudio Roditi on trumpet, and David Leonhardt on piano – and tracks include "What's Going On", "How Insensitive", "If It's Magic", "Sassy Strut", "Everbody's Boppin", "Keep On", and "Time To Say".

Monday MichiruIntrospection (Afternoon Dreams/Changes/The Island) ... CD
Polygram (Japan), 2000. New Copy ... $6.99
One of the best entries in Monday Michiru's yearly cycle of EP releases – and a sophisticated batch of jazz vocal tracks that takes her to a whole new level! The record's got a hip sound that reminds us of classic work by Dee Dee Bridgewater or Carmen Lundy – as Monday works with tight jazz backing, and sings in a spiritual introspective style that we'd reserve for only the work of a rare few singers! The ep's got 3 songs in all, all fairly long – and they work together beautifully as a discrete LP of jazzy soul from one of our favorite singers! CD

Potter & TillmanNew York To LA – Coasting ... LP
Po/et/High Jazz (Switzerland), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A fantastic collaboration between Andrew Potter and David Tillman – a duo who only cut a handful of records back in the day, all of them great! Potter & Tillman have a very collaborative spirit here – which opens the door to a host of hip soulful talents – including the great Walter Bishop Jr on piano and keyboards, Justo Almario on tenor, Ryo Kawasaki on guitar, Adam Rudolph on percussion, and a very young Carmen Lundy on vocals! Tillman plays a fair bit of keyboards – and many of the tracks have lots of great keyboard lines interacting with driving rhythms from Potter – a hell of a percussionist, and one who really gives the record a nice earthy core. Most tunes are instrumental, but Carmen Lundy serves up a great early take on her classic "Good Morning Kiss" – alongside other tunes that include "Renaissance Man Chapter One", "Just Passing Thru", "In Your Eyes", "Snake Funk (part 2)", "Fonton From Funky Bunky", and "Now-stalgia".

Kendra RossNew Voice ... CD
Lola's Child, 2007. Used ... $6.99
It's a bold thing to call a debut album "new voice" – but Kendra Ross more than lives up to that promise with this tasty little set – a fresh, no-nonsense batch of contemporary soul tracks that should certainly put Kendra on the map! Kendra's collaborated with others in the past, and the album features guest work by Eric Roberson, Talib Kweli, and others – but Ross is the key star here, working with a no-cliche approach to her music, and a style that's more sophisticated than some of her Neo Soul contemporaries – often with a nice degree of jazz in the mix that reminds us of the promise we first heard in the music of Carmen Lundy. Titles include "Real Deal", "New Voice", "Send Me Somebody To Love", "1st Time", "Has2B", and "Very Well". CD

Dwight TribleMothership ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 27.99
One of the most amazing jazz vocalists of our generation returns here with an incredible group – a majestic combo to match all the spiritual inclinations in his music – with work from Kamasi Washington on tenor, Mark De Clive-Lowe on piano, Miguel Atwood Ferguson on viola, and both Carlos Nino and Derf Reklaw on percussion! Dwight Trible on his own is already more than enough to get us to run out and buy a record – but here, the combination of his unique voice with these musicians makes for an album that's an instant masterpiece – and one that even has lots of new colors and styles compared to some of Dwight's previous work! Songs include numbers by older west coast spiritual jazz heavyweights – like Horace Tapscott, Linda Hill, Nate Morgan, James Leary, and Jesse Sharps – mixed with some of Trible's own songs, and versions of work by Carmen Lundy, Oscar Brown Jr, and Donny Hathaway. From top to bottom, start to stop, the album's a treasure – with tracks that include "It's All About Love", "Thank You Master", "Song For My Mother", "Brother Where Are You", "Some Other Time", "These Things You Are To Me", "Desert Fairy Princess", and "Mothership".

✨✧ Kassa OverallGo Get Ice Cream & Listen To Jazz ... LP
Kassa Overall, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really compelling little record from Kassa Overall – one that's definitely got some of the jazz promised by the title, especially in the form of keyboards – but a record that's also brimming over with energy on so many different fronts – with all these bits of hip hop, soul, and unusual rhythms percolating in the mix throughout! Kassa provides both vocals and drums – the latter of which are especially amazing, and often frenetic and jagged next to straighter, warmer keyboard lines – creating a cool contrast that makes the lyrical setting one of the most unique we've heard in years. The great Carmen Lundy makes an appearance on one track, and other guests include Roy Hargrove, Arto Lindsay, and Theo Croker – on titles that include "Do You", "The Sky Diver", "La Casa Azul", "Mark Sampson", "Prison & Pharmaceuticals", "Who's On The Playlist", "What's New With You", and "When Will They Learn (rmx)".
