Bulljun & El BarrioBulljun & El Barrio 2016 ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2006. Used ... $9.99
A pretty sweet mix of beats, funky samples, and Latin elements – all mixed together with almost a Tru Thoughts or Melting Pot Music sort of approach! The groove here is extremely upbeat and joyous – and most tracks step around in hard funky midtempo rhythms – assembled in the studio, but coming off with a nice sense of liveness in the way the tunes unfold! Bits of mixing further the more organic nature of the set – and despite the programming of the rhythms, the overall grooves are plenty pleasing – thanks to a good amount of acoustic source material. Titles include "Lil Mo Coke", "El Barrio Blues", "Theme From Full Time Playboy", "Sho' Nuff", "Eternal Reflection", "On The Memory Lane", and "Daddy's Sex Beat #69". CD

✨✧ El Gran ComboCaballo Pelotero ... CD
Gema/Combo, 1964. Used ... $24.99
A horse's head that would make Don Corleone proud – and a batch of grooves that has as much kick as you might find in the back end of the animal too! The album's an early groover from El Gran Combo – recorded with a nice raw edge on most numbers, and an upbeat groove that shows the group as being as tight in the 60s as they were during later, more famous years. Apart from a few boleros, the tracks are mostly swinging, with some great jazzy horns – saxes by Eddie Perez and Hector Santos, driven strongly by percussion that includes bongos from a young Roberto Roena. Vocals are by Pellin Rodriguez and Andy Montanez, and grooves are arranged by Rafael Ithier – with titles that include "La Cara", "Estetica", "El Cobrador", "Meneito Me", "Los Cuadrosos", "La Bolita", "Consentida", "El Pasajero Cuna", and "Clavo Y Martillo".

El Michels AffairAdult Themes ... CD
Big Crown, 2020. New Copy ... $12.99
A really different groove from El Michels Affair – but one that reminds us again that the group is really amazing at just about anything they ever try to do! The adult themes here are modes borrowed from older European styles – some of the slinky funk of Serge Gainsbourg and some of his contemporaries, mixed with maybe a touch of Euro erotic film scoring – but all given that strong undercurrent of funk that we can always expect from Leon Michels and the group – arranged and produced with a really superb quality throughout! The drums are nice and heavy, the basslines sexy and slinky, and there's some occasional wordless female vocals and larger arrangements that really expand the palette of El Michels. Titles include "Enfant", "Villa", "Kill The Lights", "Life Of Pablo", "A Swift Nap", "Munecas", "Rubix", "Hipps", and a number of "Adult Theme" tracks. CD

El Michels AffairReturn To The 37th Chamber (with bonus download) ... LP
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 22.98
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right down to its roots – performing new live interpretations with their wickedly sinister groove – all at a level that makes the whole thing a slow funk masterpiece from start to finish! El Michels has always been one of the few real standouts in the deep funk scene – and it's records like this that keep us loving them so much. And even though the set features vocals from Lee Fields on two tracks, and Lady Wray on one more – the instrumental groove is what dominates and draws our ears, on tracks that include "Tears", "Sipped Up", "Shadow Boxing", "Iron Man", "4th Chamber", "Shaolin Brew", "Drums For Sale", "Verbal Intercourse", "Tearz", and "Wu Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin Ta F Wit".

Spiritmuse, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A bold vision for a better version of our nation – served up here by percussionist Kahil El Zabar, but in a mode that also has him working as the conductor of a larger ensemble too! The record has all the sense of pride, power, and optimism of some of the best sessions of this type from the 80s – that feeling that music can actually effect change, especially in the hands of artists like this – a very strong ensemble that features work from Corey Wilkes on trumpet, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Tomeka Reid on cello, Josh Ramos on bass, Samuel Williams on violin, and Dennis Winslett on alto sax! The record still has a sense of groove that you'd know from Kahil's smaller group records – imagine a Ritual Trio sense of rhythm with augmented elements – and the set mixes a few well-chosen covers with great originals. The set is dedicated to Bluiette – it was his last recording – and titles include "Prayers For The Unwarranted Sufferings", "Sketches Of An Afro Blue", "Express Yourself", "Freedom March", "That We Ask Of Our Creator", and "How Can We Mend A Broken Heart".

Spiritmuse, 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $42.99 44.99
A really fantastic record from Chicago percussion legend Kahil El'Zabar – and one that features plenty of guest work on tenor from David Murray, a musician who always seems to be a perfect match for the musical ideas of Kahil! And the leader also steps out with a great side of his talents on the record too – as El'Zabar sings on a number of tracks – something he doesn't do often, but which always makes for a really special sound when he does – a vibe that's almost as if you've picked up some righteous record from the early 70s, in a really cool blend of jazz, soul, and message-oriented themes! The rest of the group features Emma Dayhuff on bass and Justin Dillard on piano and organ – and as usual, Kahil plays a huge range of percussion instruments, always inventively – and creating a richly organic setting that also seems to bring out the best in David Murray too. Titles include "Trane In Mind", "One World Family", "In My House", "Songs Of Myself", "In The Spirit", and "Necktar". LP, Vinyl record album

Their crazy first album, though they'd contributed a track here and there to compilations, including some early MoWax stuff. Lots of weird dubby tracks and insane instrumentals, with clattering percussion and the odd moogy burp. Though their second LP ended up being a bit of a let down, this one's pretty great, right down to the cover. Includes "Big Ship Whopper", "Floppy Loot Stomp", "Cosmic Dragon Dub (rmx)", "Apes-Ma" and "Monkey Monarchy". CD

El-P as visceral and inventive as hed been in years – and in hindsight, a strong solo effort pointing the way to the career peak to date that'd come with formation of Run The Jewels pretty soon after! You know damn well well that El-P is going out spit out ominous, though entrancing futuristic boom bap, and he does that as well as he has in years right here. What feels like an improvement over the past couple or 3 releases is in the vocals – sharp, furiously creative storytelling stands out really strongly on this one. It takes a major talent to shoot out such relentless and angry product that's easy to love and nod your head to, but you already know that's El-Producto, right?! Includes "Request Denied", "The Full Retard", "Works Every Time", "Drones Over Bklyn", "True Story", "The Jig Is Up", "Sign Here", "Oh Hail No" with Mr Mf'n Exquire and Danny Brown, "$4 Vic/Nothing But You + Me (FTL)" and more.

Omar El Shariyi (Ammar El Sherei)Oriental Music ... LP
Soutelphan/We Want Sounds (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
That's a pretty groovy looking keyboard on the cover – and the record's got a pretty groovy sound as well – very different than other organ records or Mid-East instrumental titles of the time, thanks in part to some very dexterous work on the multi-level keys from Omar El Shariyi! The tunes are all Egyptian melodies by Mohamed Abdel Wahab, but given a very groovy electric spin – in modes that sometimes almost veer towards the moogy, mixed with acoustic percussion, violin lines, and some other nice touches – all of which really keep things interesting in balance with the keyboards. Omar's actually the better-known Ammar El Sherei, working under a pseudonym – and titles include "Ana Wehabieby", "Ahwak", "Gafnoho", "Yawabor Kolly", and "Ah Mennak". LP, Vinyl record album

Truth & Soul/Big Crown, 2005. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Easily one of the greatest new funk records of the 21st Century – and a set that goes way beyond some of the cliches that are currently gripping others in the deep funk underground! El Michels Affair have a cool, easygoing style to their music – one that's as much 70s jazz as it is 60s funk – and which makes for tunes that have a looser structure overall, which allows much more room for instrumental interplay, and the kind of sweet surprises that make the album so great! These guys have a real penchant for an unusual rhythm and interesting instrumental flair – and they borrow as much from 70s soundtracks and Latin albums as they do from the funky 45 era that clearly gave them their start. Totally fresh all the way through, and a record that delights us a lot more than we might have expected! Titles include "Detroit Twice", "El Pueblo Unido", "Behind The Blue Curtains", "Ocho Rios", "Hung Up On My Baby", "This Song's For You", and "Slide Show". LP, Vinyl record album

Famoso/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
That's a mighty big loaf of bread on the cover – and there's a mighty big sound on the record as well – a fantastic blend of early 70s salsa modes from this very cooking little combo – served up in a blend of two saxes, two trumpets, and plenty of great percussion and piano! The group clearly draw plenty of inspiration from the New York scene – particularly that moment when the tight Latin soul combos of the late 60s were moving into salsa styles for the 70s – but there's also some other South American rhythms at work here too, although not enough to knock the album off its strongly salsa course. Jackie Carazo handles lead vocals – and titles include "El Huevo", "Pan Con Salsa", "Bomba Pa Los Cueros", "La Bailadora", "Mira Muneca", and "A La Fiesta Del Mar" – plus a great groovy cover of "Oye Como Va".

Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

The drums are nice and heavy, the basslines sexy and slinky, and there's some occasional wordless female vocals and larger arrangements that really expand the palette of El Michels. Titles include "Enfant", "Villa", "Kill The Lights", "Life Of Pablo", "A Swift Nap", "Munecas", "Rubix", "Hipps", and a number of "Adult Theme" tracks. LP, Vinyl record album

Sahel Sounds, 1994. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album from a West Saharan group dedicated to political independence of the Sahrawi people, but who also work with a great blend of older acoustic styles and a few contemporary electric elements! The music has maybe a touch of Tuareg guitar in the mix, but there's also some powerful vocals, earthy percussion, and some lighter electric touches from time to time – the last of which are never overdone or over-polished, so that the voices and percussion shine through in a beautiful way! Things get a bit funky at points, but the music is maybe best when it's more evocative, and has a heartfelt political power – on titles that include "The Day Of The Free Nation", "Sing For The Nation Day", "Long Love The Sahrawi Army", "20 Of May", "Let Me Know Our Past", "I Sing For The Country", "Song For The Prophet", and "Brave People".

A tense, impressive track from the increasingly unpredictable beat architect Prefuse 73 – featuring mic work from the unlikely pair of Ghostface and EL-P! The inspiration behind this track really couldn't be more exciting – the gifted, rugged Wu Tang trained master Ghostface has always worked best over grimey soul beats, and the clean mechanics of the Prefuse sound brings a really uneasy, very compelling backdrop. The angry, paranoid style of EL-P makes it just that much more tense. The single includes the Prefuse original mix, a EL-P remix, and a piano-driven Shaolin finale. Nice! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A great summation of the Gato Barbieri recordings for the Flying Dutchman label – and a set that includes a key new composition too! Some of the record features older Barbieri tracks for Flying Dutchman, but the highlight here is the extended 13-minute suite, "El Gato" – a wonderful number composed by Oliver Nelson, and done with a soaring, spiritual vibe that's a wonderful summation of his genius at the time – that Pharoah Sanders way of blowing in really long, searching solos, but never going too outside. Other tracks are great – and all have a nice Latin current – and feature work from Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Mtume on drums, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Airto on percussion – on titles that include "El Parana", "Merceditas", and "Ninos".

Warner/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
A mix of Latin modes and soulful fusion grooves – both of which make for an excellent album from the post-CTI years of reedman Joe Farrell! Joe plays soprano, tenor, and flute on the record – always with that well-crafted groove he first brought to jazz back in the 60s, working in a more modern context – still sounding wonderfully fresh here in the larger backdrops of a record like this – definitely a cut above most mainstream artists of his nature! Production is by Ralph MacDonald and William Eaton, with a great blend of soul and jazz – and all cuts are instrumental, with help from players who include Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on keyboards, Anthony Jackson on bass, and Steve Gadd on drums. Titles include "Promise Me Your Love", "La Catedral Y El Toro", "Disco Dust", "Cyclone Rider", "Is It Asking Too Much", and "Imagine Me". CD

Here, Chico seems really obsessed with rhythm – to a level where he's not afraid to complicate things, even in search of a groove – working with odd timings and changes that are still pretty groundbreaking, even all these many years later! As with previous records, Hamilton shows a great ear for picking unusual and inventive players – as the set includes Arnie Lawrence doing some incredible work on electric alto sax, and Bob Mann adding in trippy guitar fills that give the tracks a wild stoner feel. Chico's drums are freer than ever – and the album's a real lost gem in the Flying Dutchman mode – with titles that include "Volvos", "Up Front What Counts", "Swingin On A Sitar", "How 'Bout Bobby", "As I Open My Eyes", and "Gonna Get Some Right Now". CD

Robin Jones SevenEl Maja ... CD
Apollo Sound/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About January 20, 2021
A classic album of Latin grooves from the UK scene – a musical world that wasn't always a hotbed of styles in the Afro-Cuban mode, but which did have the benefit of the mighty percussionist Robin Jones! Jones was born in India, but moved to London during the same post-colonial jazz migration that brought the city key talents from the West Indies – and like Joe Harriott, Shake Keane, and others, Robin's contributions to the scene were crucial during the years he worked in a variety of different groups! This set is Jones' second as a leader – a very hip set that's all jazz all the way through – with plenty of percussion from Robin, and a combo that includes trumpet, saxes, keyboards, and vibes – all used in ways that take off from the best jazz descarga styles into a range of other modes. Titles include "El Maja", "The Wailer", "Batucada Da Vida", "Carica Papaya", "El Lobo", "Chant Afrique", and "Atlas". CD

KhruangbinCon Todo El Mundo ... CD
Dead Oceans, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99
A funky combo, but one with a real difference – as they seem to find whole new corners of the globe in which to work their magic – almost an imagined space of cultural criss-crossing, all set to some mighty funky bass and drums! The core element here is the guitar – which echoes exotic modes that seem to move from Mexican folk, to contemporary Tuareg sounds, and even a bit of southwest guitar instrumental echo – but all in ways that are very fresh and different, and which also sound quite unusual compared to the usual use of guitar in a funky combo! There's a bit of vocals on the album, but really the guitar is the main "voice" – and one that speaks volumes – on titles that include "Lady & Man", "Como Te Quiero", "Shades Of Man", "Maria Tambien", "Como Me Quieres", "A Hymn", and "Rules".

Drums and bass really get a great workout – and the production isn't the usual Jamaican-inspired dub, but a mode that's maybe partly got a David Axelrod quality – as these guys use the instrumental moments to open up into all these dark, moody corners – while still keeping things nicely funky overall. Titles include "With All The World", "Sisters & Brothers", "How I Love", "Four Of Five", "Hasta El Cielo", and "Order Of Operations".

A wonderfully hard-to-categorize album from the start of the 80s – a Mexican record that mixes folkloric roots with electronic instrumentation – but all in a way that sounds much more ancient than you'd expect for the time! The fusion of modes here is wonderful – almost at a level that reminds us of some of the Graeme Revell experiments of the mid 80s, or some of the more organic electronics from Japan – as the whole thing feels a lot more acoustic than electric, with a wonderful blend of woody sounds, percussion, and other great elements. Titles include "In Altepetal Tonal", "I Pan In Xiktli Metztli", "Xochiyaoyoloh", and "Ketzalkoatl Yauh Miktlan". LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo Ray & Bobby CruzEl Bestial Sonido (remastered edition) ... CD
Vaya/Fania, 1971. Used ... $11.99
One of the real standouts in the career of Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz – a record of incredible tightness, and one that set a whole new level for Puerto Rican salsa in the 70s! There's still a few traces here of the Latin Soul years – sometimes in the rhythms, at other times in the record's use of an additional female vocalist – who sings behind Bobby's vocals in a really cool way on some of the best numbers. But the main focus here is really on the tightness of the instrumentation – razor-sharp in the arrangements, and served up in a lean mix of piano, trumpets, and percussion. Titles include a nice slow funk remake of "Fire & Rain", plus "Sondido Bestial", "No Tin Pena", "La Vimari", "Cha Cha Huele Chango", and "Volver". CD

Raphael SebbagFrom El Fantasma De La Libertad ... CD
Power Shovel (Japan), 2006. Used ... $1.99
A beautiful new chapter in the career of Raphael Sebbag – work that's quite different than the grooves he first did in United Future Organization, and a lot more organic as well! There's a fair bit of Latin style running through the set – but not in a hokey way, and more in a complicated blend of percussion, sound samples, and larger orchestrations! The whole thing's extremely evocative – really fitting the "fantasy" in the title, and filled with a wealth of cultural references that Raphael always brought to his work with UFO, but never this fully. Some tracks here are remixed by Zero Db, Yuichiro Fujimoto, Killer Bong, and others – with very different versions of similar tunes working together as a long suite of tracks. Titles include "Besos", "His Majesty", "El Fantasma De La Libertad", "His Majesty (street play rmx)", "Besos (dub)", "El Fantasma De La Libertad (Juju rmx)", and "His Majesty (instrumental)". CD

Ray Barretto just before the Latin Soul era – working in the excellent style he used on his Charanga Moderna album – a choppy groove that has plenty of weird twists and turns – always rhythmic, and always plenty darn soulful! The instrumentation here is a mix of small combo jazz and some of the charanga modes – with two violins, trumpet, trombone, piano, and timbales – plus vocals by Willie Garcia and Adalberto Santiago. The groove is nice and sinister on the best cuts – with that strange offbeat sound that Ray was bringing to Latin music at the time – an edge that was missing from earlier work, and which really helped set the scene for the boogaloo generation!

The 3-part "Andando El Tiempo" builds beautifully in sound – from haunting and meditative, to knowingly sad (though no less beautiful), to brighter and hopeful in mood over its 3 longish pieces. "Saints Alive" is a slow-building gem itself, with the most brilliant interplay between Bley's piano and Swallow's bass of the entire session, and the closer "Naked Bridges/Diving Brides" evokes a variety of moods in its long run on the record. Inspiring work from a longtime favorite composer! CD

Mindblowing sounds from the one of the originators of Colombian champeta – a mad musician who's able to bring together a huge array of sounds into one very unique groove!

There's a raw sound to many of the tracks – a vibe that feels more like the earlier years of Disco Fuentes than most other 80s recordings – and the set's got great notes on Abelardo and his music, and a batch of titles that includes "Muevela", "Viajando", "La Playa", "Baile Del Indio", "La Negra Kulengue", "Ejen En Acordeon", "Oye Muje Muje", "Guiero A Mi Gente", "Guana Tangula", and "A Otro Perro Con Ese Hueso".

Massively groovy work from Chico Hamilton – one of his standout swingers for Impulse Records in the 60s, and a set that really showcases all the changes in music he'd made for the decade! The set features some wonderful reed work from Jerome Richardson and Charlie Mariano, plus some especially great guitar from Gabor Szabo – a player who was rising to fame in Hamilton's group, but also stands out here with lots of the breezy grooves he'd bring to his own dates for Impulse. Tracks are short, but in a good way that really keeps them focused – and other players who complete the groove include Clark Terry on trumpet and Ron Carter on bass – both of whom nicely pick up Chico's sense of adventure and humor. Titles include "Monday Monday", "Daydream", "Stella By Starlight", "Evil Eye", "Manila", "That Boy With The Long Hair", and "Monday Monday". LP, Vinyl record album
