Tony Aiken & FutureLiberation ... CD
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
You might remember Tony Aiken for his classic funk album Unity, from the 70s – and here, he's back again – after nearly 40 years away from the studio! The album's got a style that's a lot more reggae-influenced than before – maybe not totally a reggae record, given the other influences that Tony brings to bear – but a style that's definitely Jamaican overall, especially in the rhythms! The project features a big number of guests – as you can probably guess from the images on the front cover – all given a soulful spirit by Tony's lead. Package lists no song titles at all – but there are 10 tracks total. CD

Tony Aiken & Future 2000Unity – Sing It Shout It ... CD
Kimsha/Boom Shot, 1976. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A mindblower – and the kind of record we only come across once in a blue moon! Tony Aiken & Future 2000 were an obscure mid 70s group from New York – all players skilled in the burgeoning club scene of the time, but who also had their roots in Caribbean music – coming together for this unique record in a festive blend of early disco and funky styles! The record's got a great home-grown feel – a warm ensemble effort that's got equal parts soul and groove – and which bubbles over with personal touches that really make the tracks stand out from the pack. Includes the side-long jammer "Unity Sing It Shout It", plus the funky disco classic "Better Days", and the soulful cuts "She Loves Me", "Good Things", and "Time Tunnel". CD also features lots of bonus tracks too – "Jah Music", "Jah Music (dub)", "Doing Fine", "Doing Fine (dub)", "Skanking On The A Train", and "Holy Father". CD

United Future OrganizationJazzin ... CD
Zero/Kind Of Groove (France), 1993. Used ... $14.99
An excellent collection of early work by United Future Organization – mostly recorded in 1991 and 1992, when the group was first experimenting with its playful blend of jazzy samples and soulful rhythms. There's some real gems on the set – tunes that still stay faithful to the songs that inspired them, yet show that love in a newly expressive way – one that helped a whole new generation turn onto 60s and 70s jazz. Titles include "Moon Dance" in both "moon chant" and "moon rappin" versions, "I Love My Baby (My Baby Loves Jazz)" in both regular and Norman Cook remixes, "Loud Minority (radio mix)", "Dig That Beat", and "Nemurenai" in both vocal and instrumental versions.

United Future OrganizationV ... CD
Exceptional (UK), 2002. Used ... $9.99
Incredible work from United Future Organization – light years ahead of anything else they've ever done! The album shows a tremendous growth in instrumental styles – with more of a preoccupation with the overall shapes and sound of their music, grown here to expansive limits, encompassing a richer array of modes than ever before! Many tracks begin with isolated instrumentation – quite introspective and warm, building slowly without the cheap tricks of some of their more flashy work – confident in a decade's worth of musical exploration, and willing to take the time to craft something completely new out of a lifetime's worth of cultural references. There's plenty of room on the album for guests, too – including Mark Murphy, Nathan Haines, Valerie Etienne, Jeffery Smith, and Sabrina Malheiros – and the overall sound of the album is like nothing you'd ever expect from the group! Titles include "Microcosmo", "World Thing", "Lunar Enfant", "No Problem", "Everyday Routine", "Esperanza", "Suite Espagnole", and "Transworld". CD

✨✧ United Future OrganizationBon Voyage ... CD
Instinct, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Recent work from UFO – one of their best since the early days! The record's a cool mix of off-kilter jazz tracks, done in a style that mixes classic samples of instrumentation with tasty modern percussion progressions – in a manner that much more resembles the group's early work than it does their more recent stuff. Highlights include a great remake of "Flying Saucer" by Aussie Alan Lee, a nice slow funky track called "Niji", a two-stepper called "Pilgrims", and other nice ones like "Labyrinth", "Dans Ce Desert", and "Tres Amigos". Plus, the domestic pressing includes a bonus track "Tres Amigos (Organic Audio Mix)" and a CD Rom video for "Good Luck Shore"! CD

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoAncient To The Future ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1987. Used ... $19.99
The Art Esemble of Chicago pay tribute to a surprising range of influences – from Duke Ellington to Otis Redding to Fela Kuti and Jimi Hendrix – but all in a set that's still filled with plenty of their trademark creative improvisation, too! In a way, the record's a great illustration of the changes that had come to the AACM over the course of two decades – still bold enough to break down new territory in jazz, but also feeling confident enough to claim a key role in, and link to, a larger history of African-American expression – one that's handled quite deftly here by the group! Lee Bowie joins the group a bit on synth, a relatively small addition to the core sounds from Lester Bowie on trumpet, Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell on reeds, Malachi Favors on bass, and Don Moye on percussion. Titles include a firey reading of Fela's "Zombie", which is great, plus covers of "No Woman No Cry", "Purple Haze", "These Arms Of Mine", and "Creole Love Call" – and the group's own "Ancient To The Future" suite.

Chocolate Jam CoSpread Of The Future ... CD
Epic/PTG (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy ... $10.99
A funky fusion classic from the 70s – totally great work from Chocolate Jam Company, a hip little group headed up by percussionist Leon Ndugu Chancler! The core sound is soul, but there's plenty of fusion touches as well – thanks to a great lineup of players that includes Oscar Brashear on trumpet, George Duke on keyboards, David T Walker on guitar, and even Dorothy Ashby on harp! Chancler sings lead vocals on most cuts – but he's also joined by Virginia Ayers and Leo Mille on some cuts too – making for a really well-rounded sound that's easily one of the best jazz-into-soul sessions like this from the 70s – almost topping the more famous work from folks like Lenny White or Mtume! Titles include "Don't Leave Me Now Stay With Me", "Feeling", "This Time", "Looking Glass", and the extended "Suite Chocolate". CD

Curtis CounceExploring The Future (remastered edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1958. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A great little album that's every bit as wonderful as you might expect from its cover – one of the key late 50s sides as a leader from bassist Curtis Counce – cut with a killer lineup that includes Harold Land on tenor sax, Rolf Ericson on trumpet, and Elmo Hope on piano! The set's got the mix of modernism and soul bop leanings you might expect from the players – a really fresh approach that comes off especially well in the non-iconic production style of the Dootone label – a mode that really let the players do their own thing, and break out from some of the tighter restrictions of other LA labels on the scene. Frank Butler completes the quintet on drums – and titles include "The Countdown", "Into The Orbit", "Race For Space", "Move", "Angel Eyes", and "So Nice". CD also features 4 bonus tracks – "Foreplay", "Chasin The Bird", "Move (unedited version)", and "Head Gear (Countdown) (unedited version)". CD

DevoDuty Now For The Future (magenta vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Devo's second album didn't scare the bejesus out of 70s rock fans in the way of their agitpop masterpiece debut, and the group's mainstream salad days of "Whip It" were still another year or two away, but nowadays we wouldn't trade Duty Now For The Future for just about any post punk album of the time! At this point the punk-era crunch was still a sizable portion of the plate – for that extra aggro kick behind the squealing synthesizers and primitive electronics. Long underappreciated, and all but ignored in the CD era, Duty. . .has excellent tracks that will always be loved by the Spuds even if WEA kept it buried too long! "Devo Corporate Anthem", "Clockout", "Wiggly World", "Blockhead", "Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA", "Red Eye" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Ajay Heble & Rob WallacePeople Get Ready – The Future Of Jazz Is Now ... Book
Duke, 2013. New Copy ... $5.99 26.95
The future of jazz is now, even if it's in the past – as the editors here bring together a selection of essays that document the forward-thinking movements in jazz from the mid 60s onwards – some of which are only getting full appreciation all these many years later! There's a nice variety of subjects from an equally nice variety of writers – and essays include "Jeanne Lee's Voice" by Eric Porter, "Days Of Bread & Roses" by Mark Ribot, "Experimental Music In The Academy In New York City" by Tamar Barzel, "The Antiquity Of The Avant Garde" by John Szwed, "Black Jazz In The Digital Age" by Greg Tate, and "Ancient To The Future" by members of the AACM, including Nicole Mitchell, Matana Roberts, Don Moye, Wadada Leo Smith, and Roscoe Mitchell. There's also a section on the "Jazz Photography Of Thomas King" – and the whole thing is 312 pages, softcover, with some black and white photographs. Book

Damon Locks & Black Monument EnsembleWhere Future Unfolds ... CD
International Anthem, 2019. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
An amazing record from Chicago musician/artist Damon Locks – maybe the album he's been waiting his entire life to make – and the first to really bring together the mighty sum of his many talents! The material was recorded live in performance at Chicago's Garfield Park Conservatory – at an event that also included a group of singers and dancers to augment the musical performance – in a setting that gives Damon's majestic vision the proper setting it really deserves! Locks himself moves between electronics and vocal performances – in a core instrumental group that's heavy on drums and percussion from Dana Hall, clarinets from Angel Bat Dawid, and more percussion from Arif Smith – making music that's even more beautiful when the singers come into the mix, and take the energy to the sky with a very cosmic, righteous vibe. Locks has given us a glimpse of his vision in artwork, music, and writings over the years – but this time around, it feels like we're seeing the full scope at once – with more power and meaning than ever before. Titles include "Solar Power", "Rebuild A Nation", "Which I Believe It Will", "The Colors That You Bring", "The Future", "From A Spark To A Fire", "Black Monument Theme", and "Sounds Like Now". CD

The first moment of genius from the Steve Miller Band – a killer debut that also features a young Boz Scaggs as a key member of the group! Steve's the core star here, though – setting things up in this amazing blend of psych, blues, and hard rock – one that's easily a lot more ballsy than most of his Bay Area contemporaries at the time – really taking off on some propulsive rhythms, razor-sharp guitar, and cooking keyboards! Scaggs' vocal help is mighty nice – and titles include "You've Got The Power", "Pushed Me To It", "Junior Saw It Happen", "Baby's Callin Me Home", "Roll With It", and "Key To The Highway".

✨✧ PleasureFuture Now ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful album from Pleasure – a group who were already great before, but who really seem to hit a great new level with this late 70s classic! Pleasure started out as a sweet jazz/funk combo with a great edge to their music – but by the time of this set, they'd actually gotten even tighter and better – but all without losing their depth at all! Most of the group's contemporaries just got slick and commercial – but instead, Pleasure found a way to hone their skills wonderfully – and take on some new spacey and electric touches in the process – definitely pointing towards the funky future promised in the title. The set's filled with some of the funkiest and most soulful moments of the group's career – including "Space is the Place", which has great funky drums on the intro; the mellow "Thoughts of Old Flames", a real stunner with a great moody feel; and the classic "Glide", a great dancefloor groover that still stands up well. Other tracks are all great too – and include "Universal", "Strong Love", "Nothin To It", and "Dedication To The Past". CD

The Polyrhythmics always manage to give us something groovy – and this set's got their trademark style of shifting rhythms laced with lots of tight guitar – partly old school funk, but also graced with some contemporary elements too! The guitar of Ben Bloom is often the lead solo instrument, but also does plenty as part of the rhythmic pulse too – alongside sharp drums, bad-stepping basslines, and nice use of horns in a way that really just peppers the groove, different than more horn-based funk. There's also some sweet keyboards on most tracks – and titles include "Chelada", "In The Trees", "Man From The Future", "Yeti Set Go", and "The Cutdown". CD

Sun RaWe Are In The Future (aka Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra) ... CD
Savoy/Vogue, 1961/1984. Used ... $8.99
The one and only album that Sun Ra ever cut for the Savoy label – a beautifully understated session that mixes more conventional jazz with some particularly Ra-like touches! The group on the set is extremely tight – especially the horn work of John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Pat Patrick – who glide together along with some of the best mainstream modernists of the 50s, but break out with earthier tones and phrases that clearly mark their playing as different from the norm. Ra plays relatively straight piano for the album, but there's more than enough Arkestra touches from other players on bells and assorted percussion – emphasizing the rhythmic qualities of the tunes, and really living up to the promise of titles that include "Bassism", "China Gates", "Of Sounds And Something Else", "Tapestry From An Asteroid", "Jet Flight", "Space Jazz Reverie", and "Where Is Tomorrow?".

Tavares are at the height of their early career here – stepping out in a set of smooth soul tunes arranged by hitmeister Freddie Perren – the standout of which is the group's major disco classic "More Than A Woman"! That tune actually manages to outshine most of the other work on the set – and even though it had quite a bit of play at the time, thanks to Saturday Night Fever, it's still a heck of a great little track, with a unique blend of harmonies and flute licks that still manages to come across with a personal feel. We also like the mellow harmony track "All I See Is You", which is kind of a hidden gem on the set – and other tracks include "The Ghost Of Love", "Slow Train To Paradise", "Honey Can I", and "Feel So Good".

A great selection of future soul tracks, all handpicked by radio DJ Radhu – an American talent with ears that may well rival those of Gilles Peterson for finding the sounds we'll all enjoy tomorrow!

Brownswood (UK), 2019. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sound of tomorrow, coming to you today – thanks to this excellent Future Bubblers series on Brownswood Records! The series is something of an offshoot of the longer-running Brownswood Bubblers – which has turned us onto great new music for many years – and the "future" side of this project is really well-placed, as many of these artists are younger London talents who are just getting their start – but seem destined for the kind of soulful contributions we've always loved from Gilles Peterson and his side of the universe. Titles include "The World Is Yours" by Ayy, "Promi53" by Shredy, "Bounded" by Slvsh Three, "All The Glimmering" by Kayla Painter, "Really On" by Blind Mic, "Sittin On Me Step" by Aaliyah Esprit, "Zither Rhythm" by Sydney, and "4F3D63 Hex" by Wilroy.

✨✧ Roxy CossFuture Is Female ... CD
Posi tone, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Roxy Coss's second album as a leader for the Posi-Tone label – and it's her strongest to date, both by design and in performance! Where her Chasing The Unicorn album set up a whimsical sensibility, this one obliviously sets up a tone of strength and determination – undercurrents of all her work we've heard thus far, but are front-and-center thematically here. The titles are strident and topical, while the sound is timeless, with some thematic touches – like the almost foreboding intro to "Mr. President" that leads into marching drums, or the slyly easygoing swing that starts "Feminist AF" leading to some of the most energetic soloing by Roxy on the whole set – but she never casts off the neo-classic jazz she's always had such a strong voice for. Recorded in a single day with her excellent band including Alex Wintz, Miki Yamanaka, Rick Rosato and Jimmy Macbride, titles include "Nevertheless, She Persisted", "Little Did She Know", "She Needed A Hero, So That's What She Became", "Females Are Strong As Hell", "#MeToo","Nasty Women Grab Back" and "Ode To A Generation".

✨✧ Ethnic Heritage EnsembleBe Known Ancient/Future/Music (deluxe 2LP edition) ... LP
Spiritmuse, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The first record in many years from the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble – done with a lineup that features a variation from the original group, but a sound that's very much in keeping with their mission! The Ensemble were always dedicated to preserving a spiritual jazz tradition at a time when the Chicago and global scenes were decidedly more free jazz-oriented – and from his emergence in the 80s onward, percussionist Kahil El'Zabar has continued to fan the flames with his own music, and with fantastic collaborations like this! The group's a quartet this time around – and has the tremendous Corey Wilkes on trumpet, really giving the sound a pointed edge – next to Kahil's work on a variety of percussion instruments, the baritone sax of Alex Harding, and the cello of Ian Maskin. Maskin's performance on the record is often similar to the way in which the violin of Billy Bang was used in El'Zabar's Ritual Trio – a fluid bridge between the percussion and the horn lines – and the set includes great reworkings of the classics "Little Sunflower" and "Freedom Jazz Dance" – plus originals "Ntozake", "Pharoah", "Blew It", "Black Is Back", and "Wish I Knew".

✨✧ Damon Locks & Black Monument EnsembleWhere Future Unfolds ... LP
International Anthem, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An amazing record from Chicago musician/artist Damon Locks – maybe the album he's been waiting his entire life to make – and the first to really bring together the mighty sum of his many talents! The material was recorded live in performance at Chicago's Garfield Park Conservatory – at an event that also included a group of singers and dancers to augment the musical performance – in a setting that gives Damon's majestic vision the proper setting it really deserves! Locks himself moves between electronics and vocal performances – in a core instrumental group that's heavy on drums and percussion from Dana Hall, clarinets from Angel Bat Dawid, and more percussion from Arif Smith – making music that's even more beautiful when the singers come into the mix, and take the energy to the sky with a very cosmic, righteous vibe. Locks has given us a glimpse of his vision in artwork, music, and writings over the years – but this time around, it feels like we're seeing the full scope at once – with more power and meaning than ever before. Titles include "Solar Power", "Rebuild A Nation", "Which I Believe It Will", "The Colors That You Bring", "The Future", "From A Spark To A Fire", "Black Monument Theme", and "Sounds Like Now".

✨✧ Sun RaWe Are In The Future (aka Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra) ... LP
Savoy, 1961/1984. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
The one and only album that Sun Ra ever cut for the Savoy label – a beautifully understated session that mixes more conventional jazz with some particularly Ra-like touches! The group on the set is extremely tight – especially the horn work of John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Pat Patrick – who glide together along with some of the best mainstream modernists of the 50s, but break out with earthier tones and phrases that clearly mark their playing as different from the norm. Ra plays relatively straight piano for the album, but there's more than enough Arkestra touches from other players on bells and assorted percussion – emphasizing the rhythmic qualities of the tunes, and really living up to the promise of titles that include "Bassism", "China Gates", "Of Sounds And Something Else", "Tapestry From An Asteroid", "Jet Flight", "Space Jazz Reverie", and "Where Is Tomorrow?".

Future Days, 1967. New Copy ... $14.99 24.98
A lost treasure for any fan of Tim Buckley – material from two different sessions recorded in 1967, both of which include a few songs that never appeared elsewhere! As the title implies, the recordings here are acoustic – mostly with guitar and Buckley's vocals very much upfront in the mix, at a level that traces an even deeper line back to folk music – but which, throughout, is always graced by that amazing sense of phrasing that made Tim unlike any of his contemporaries! The stripped-down setting is a fantastic one for his vocals – which are possibly even more mindblowing without any sort of studio arrangement or fancy production. Material comes from one rare reel-to-reel tape, only recently discovered – and a rare acetate of another session – and the sound quality for both is great. The package comes with detailed notes on the material, and an in-depth interview with co-lyricism Larry Beckett – and titles include "Sixface", "Contact", "Pleasant Street", "Lady Give Me Your Key", "Once Upon A Time", "Marigold", "Carnival Song", "She's Back Again", and "I Can't Leave You Lovin Me".

Future Talk (France), 2000. Used ... $2.99
Very compelling work by this French producer – featuring a subtle set of tracks that mixes moody jazz with abstract modern rhythms – in a style that sort of feels like an update on the Blue Note "new thing" sound laid down by artists like Bobby Hutcherson, Andrew Hill, and others during the mid 60s. Lone's got a complicated approach, and mixes off-kilter piano, vibes, bass, and other instruments with washes of sound and processed electronics that are slightly funky, but mostly atmospheric. Proof that the French scene's continuing to reshape our ideas about the future of modern music! Tracks include "Reve 1", "Pace", "Pailo Pailo", "Drunk Moon", "Oleg Dans Le Bois", and "Grenade". CD

Loma/Future Days, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 22.99
60s soul treasures – served up here in glorious mono – all as part of this wonderful tribute to the legendary Loma Records label! Loma was a small imprint that was part of Warner Brothers in the late 60s – and acted more like an LA-based indie label, with a quality level that rivals the best from New York, Detroit, and Chicago at the time – even Memphis, given that Loma had a surprisingly great ear for deep soul – in a way that few west coast imprints had during the 60s. The mix of modes here is wonderful – from upbeat groovers, to female soul killers, to some especially hard-burning male vocal numbers – in a set list that includes "The Dam Busted" by Carl Hall, "You Can't Outsmart A Woman" by Kell Osborne, "Too Late" by JJ Jackson, "Good Time" by The Mighty Hannibal, "Help Yourself" by Larry Lester, "Callin" by Lonnie Youngblood, "Your Search is Over" by Walter Foster, "Rainin In My Heart" by The Olympics, "There's Something On Your Mind (part 1)" by Baby Lloyd, and "Try" by Lorraine Ellison.

Loma/Future Days, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 22.99
Major labels didn't always get soul music as well as the indies back in the 60s – but there's one exception to that myth, the mighty Loma Records label from Warner Brothers! The company had a near-perfect run during its few years in business – killer soul singles that are every bit as prized by collectors as some of the more obscure records on tiny labels from the time – and which are handled with a quality level that's never too commercial, never as slick as you'd expect from a bigger company that was also handling easy listening and pop during the same period. Instead, the Loma legacy is a mighty deep run of greatness – as you'll hear on this stunning third volume in the series – with titles that include "The Shadow Of Your Love" by Bobby Freeman, "I Paid For The Party" by The Enchanters, "Can't Win" by The Invicibles, "Better Think Of What You're Losing" by Tommy Starr, "If This Ain't Love" by The Realistics, "Don't Come A Knockin" by Mary Lee Whitney, "Sad Sad Feeling (part 1)" by The Autographs, and "I Wanna Love You So Bad" by Bobby Reed.

Loma/Future Days, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 22.99
Rare work from the mighty Loma Records label – including a few never-issued tracks from the Los Angeles powerhouse of soul! Loma's music has already been compiled strongly on the previous three volumes in this series, but this volume maybe goes even further – to offer up a batch of other classic Loma singles, along with some equally nice cuts from the vault – the kind of music that really makes us wonder what would have happened if the imprint had kept on putting out soul music well into the 70s! There's a rock-solid, forward-thinking quality here that's totally great – overlooked talents and a few bigger names – all working here at the height of their powers. Titles include "We Need To Be Loved" by The Teen Turbans, "I Need You" by The Marvellos, "Sweeter Than Sweet Thing" by Vickie Baines, "Like I Told You" by Carl Hall, "Heartstrings" by The Invincibles, "I'm Coming Home" by The Mighty Hannibal, "Just Can't Get Enough Of Your Love" by The Apollas, "Back In Circulation" by Dick Jenson & The Imports, "That's All You Gotta Do" by Ben Aiken, "You Can't Take It" by Linda Jones, and "Ole Man Soul" by The Implements.

✨✧ Lee MosesTime & Place ... CD
Maple/Future Days, 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost deep soul set from Lee Moses – a relatively obscure vocalist, but one who we'd rank right up there with James Carr, Wilson Pickett, or any of their contemporaries! Lee's music has a hard southern soul feel to it – sounding almost like a pile of 45s from a label like Sound Stage 7, or some more obscure imprint from below the Mason-Dixon line – even though the record was issued on the Maple label up north. And possibly it's Lee's odd northern placement with a deeply southern style that never got him his due back in the day – but that loss is our gain, as the record's an under-discovered treasure that's filled with really hard-wailing soul tunes! There's a slightly garagey feel to the production – quite gritty at times, with even more of an earthier undercurrent than you'd hear on work from Memphis or Muscle Shoals – and Lee matches this sound wonderfully with a really raspy approach to vocals. Titles include a great version of "California Dreaming", plus the tracks "Time & Place", "Got That Will", "Every Boy & Girl", "Hey Joe", "Free At Last", and "Adorable One". CD

The title's a great one – as the set's kind of a companion to Terry Reid's legendary River album – pulled together from tapes recorded around the same time as that session – and featuring six completely new tunes, and five very different alternates of songs on the previous record! The material is wonderful – that genre-bending style that made Reid one of the real underground heroes of his time – a mode steeped in the British love of blues in the 60s, but set loose on a whole range of rootsier styles and more personal modes here – and even given a very special Brazilian influence on one unusual track done in collaboration with Gilberto Gil! Willie Bobo plays percussion on a few tracks, too – and these titles have never been issued at all – just rumored about for years, and finally discovered in the Warner Brothers vault. Titles include "Country Brazilian Funk", "Let's Go Down", "Avenue", "Things To Try", "Sabyla", "Anyway", "Celtic Melody", "Late Nite Idea", "Listen With Eyes", and "River". LP, Vinyl record album

Vanguard/Future Days, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully trippy record – recorded by a loose collective of musicians and singers brought together around the scene at Apostolic Studios, in a relaxed setting that makes for some of the most offbeat sounds you'll ever hear on the Vanguard label in the 60s! There's more of a Fugs/ESP vibe than Vanguard's usual folk or psych – and the whole thing almost comes across more like a "happening" than a record – with shifting styles, shifting participants, and a mix of modes that runs from folk, to acoustic psych, and embraces global elements too – as the instrumentation moves between guitars, piano, harmonium, oud, organ, chimes, mandolin, and many more instrumental elements. Singers shift nicely, too – and the credits even list some participants as playing water, and also coughing, sniffling, and yawning too. Lyrics are nicely hippy-dippy –optimistic, with almost child-like sense of innocence – and titles include "Devil's Yard", "Down The Road", "Zoo Song", "Spring Song", "I Won't Be Sad Again", "Saigon Girls", and "Personality".

He brings in some fiddle and mandolin for a rustic feel here and there, a coronet that lends a bit of a jazzy cognizance, and more streamlined, folk rock touches.

Here, Link sings as well as plays – working in his legendary Three Track Shack, which was located in Maryland, but has a vibe that feels like it came right out of the Louisiana swamps! The style of the music follows suit – almost as if Link saw folks like Tony Joe White, Bobby Charles, and some of their contemporaries – and tried to find his unique take on the raunchy blend of roots rock, country, and maybe some occasional funky currents. Polydor cleaned the album up a bit for release – but no too much – and titles include "Juke Box Mama", "Rise & Fall Of Jimmy Stokes", "La De Da", "Black River Swamp", "Tail Dragger", "Ice People", and "Fire & Brimstone".

Atmosphere's signature sound full force – but also featuring some of their most experimental material to this point! Slug bounces along melodically, tortured and true to his nature, yet he comes off a little (just a little) more optimistic this time and he recites more than just tales of love lost. He STILL is at his tightest when weaving wonderful heart-wrenching stories instead of bragging, yet I don't think you hear the name Lucy once on this album. Sean Daley, the philosopher? – maybe we'll see more and more of that in the future. ANT's production is sounding much much better since God Loves Ugly – these beats pound just a little harder, seemingly influenced by punk and classic rock, thankfully without coming anywhere near classifiable rap rock. There still is a whole lotta soul in there, which is very nice, yet he still ain't afraid to pitch the formula, say sample some off kilter scatting or a ripping metal guitar. Tracks include "Bird Sings Why The Caged I Know", "Cats Van Bags", "National Disgrace", "Liquor Lyles Cool July".

There's some great righteous energy going on here – making the set easily one of the most soulful in the Smalls Live series – and at times, almost like some lost New York set from the mid 70s – poised equally between spiritual and soul jazz modes! At times, Avital's bass is right up front in the mix, really leading off the tunes with a great sense of boldness – and at others, the trumpet of Avishai Cohen and tenor of Joel Frahm come together with this soaring elegance that really sets the whole thing on fire. Tracks are all originals by Avital, and titles include "Blues For Tardy", "Magic Carpet", "Theme For A Brighter Future", "Anthem To Life", "One", and "Just Some Small Time Sh*t". CD

Roy was never shy about embracing innovation, and here he's blending straight up 80s smooth soul with jazzy vibes galore, as well as some post-Future Shock electro touches, particularly on the dancefloor ready title track – but this the mellow, sultry numbers that really make this one a win.

A great return to form for Chet Baker – his first record in a number of years away from the studio, and proof that his genius could adapt to just about any setting! The album's got a tight focus that's probably one of the keys to its success – a set of arrangements by Don Sebesky that mix lusher moments with some more tightly snapping rhythms – a blend that allows Chet to display the full range of his talents without veering too far in one direction. Paul Desmond plays some great alto on the record, really bringing in a strong sense of crispness to a few numbers – and instrumentation also includes great electric piano from Bob James, vibes from Dave Friedman, and flute from Hubert Laws. Baker sings on a few numbers, and titles include "Autumn Leaves", "She Was Too Good To Me", "Funk In Deep Freeze", "Tangerine", "With A Song In My Heart", "What'll I Do", and "It's You Or No One".

The long title track "Leapday Night" features trumpet from Rhys Chatham and Ben Neill – the latter of whom also plays "mutantrumpet" – and the use of those instruments almost links the work to that of Jon Hassell during the time, but with the electronics from Behrman much more at the core. The album also features the long "Interspecies Smalltalk" – which has similar blocky electronics, pulsating back and forth – mixed with violin from Takehisa Kosugi. CD also features one long bonus track – "Berlin NY" – with sound effects from Clara Mondshine, and keyboard improvisation from Jakino! CD

Lilith (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... About March 5, 2021
Avant Swiss rockers Brainticket look back to ancient pharaohs for Celestial Ocean – a conceptual look at the distant past, with a creative step into the future! The tapestry of sounds is pretty amazing, with the futuristic blend of blunt sound errata, synthesizers, stream of consciousness lyricism and production flourishes a giant leap forward – but it's the way it's all blended with sparser keys, sitar and more global organic touches that makes it such a creative win and puts the group ahead of the pack creatively. Titles include "Egyptian Kings", "Jardins", "Rainbow", "Era Of Technology", "The Space Between", "Cosmic Winds" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownHot ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Good+ ... $9.99
One of the lesser-known albums from the mid 70's, and one that includes a mix of remakes of old stuff, and some faster tracks that seem to be aimed at the dancefloor. Dave Matthews arranged a number of tracks, including "Hot", "So Long", and "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons". James did the rest, including "Future Shock Of The World", "Woman", "Most Of All", and "Goodnight My Love". Not his greatest – but also with some pretty decent funky moments that aren't too fast! LP, Vinyl record album

Captain SkyPop Goes The Captain ... CD
AVI/Past Due, 1979. New Copy ... $15.99
The second smoking album from Captain Sky – a Windy City funk legend, and one who's cut from some of the same cloth as Bootsy Collins or Rick James! Like both of those artists, the Captain's a pretty imposing figure, with a bit of future flash to his looks – and while he uses lots of the basslines that might tie him to Bootsy and the P-Funk universe, he's also got a groove that mixes in some of the more sophisticated modes you'd know from the Chicago scene at the time! There's almost a late Curtom feel to the record – tight funk, a bit faster than early in the decade, but still not really disco – and with some mellow midtempo tracks that balance things out beautifully – and really show Sky evolving past the style of his first record. Tracks include "Moonchild", "Fearless", "Cream & Sugar", "Rebirth", "Hero", "Double You SKY", and "Ker-Runch". CD

Larry CarltonWith A Little Help From My Friends/Singing Playing ... CD
BGO (UK), 1968/1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Two early gems from guitarist Larry Carlton – back to back on a single CD! First up is the Uni album With A Little Help From My Friends – pre-fusion, and done at a time when a whole generation of guitarists were trying to find a way forward – and experimenting in a number of different formats! The vibe here is maybe like some of the Wes Montgomery or George Benson Verve or CTI records of the late 60s – really chromatic guitar lines that carve out a beautiful lead over some arrangements that are fuller than a combo, but never overdone – arranged by Foster Wakefield, who we don't know at all – but with the tasteful spaciousness of a Claus Ogerman or a Don Sebesky! Larry sounds great on the record – really working out some lines that are quite different than a jazz guitarist might have sounded a few years before – and strongly pointing the way to his future. Titles include "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Don't You Care", "Mac Arthur Park", "Odd Couple", "Eleanor Rigby", and "Monday Monday". Next is Singing/Playing, and the title's no lie – as Larry Carlton steps out in a warmly-produced session that's got a really sweet LA studio vibe – one that mixes together early fusion backings and compressed vocalizations – in a way that maybe makes the whole thing feel like an overlooked A&M Records gem from the Nick DeCaro years! Larry's got this easygoing vocal style that's very down to earth, and set up in these sweet arrangements directed by Stewart Levine – soulful, jazzy, and with occasional currents of funk – and with some great keyboard touches from MIchael Omartin next to Larry's guitar and vocals. Titles include the great "American Family", plus "Wavin & Smilin", "Easy Evil", "Free Way", "Captain Captain", and "With Respect To Coltrane". CD

Billy CobhamFunky Thide Of Sings ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, Mid 70s. Used ... $7.99
Billy Cobham's always got something funky going on in his music – and this 70s classic for Atlantic Records has the drummer at the height of his powers – really mixing together jazz, rock, and funk impulses – all without some of the overindulgence of his more jamming records of the time! There's still some great trippy sounds at times – some fierce future jazz passages that have Billy's drums really propelling keyboards and guitar – but overall the tracks are short and focused, with a nice nod back to the kind of energy that Cobham brought to his sessions with other artists. One exception is the great "Moody Modes" – a sweet long electric track that almost feels like George Duke on MPS – alongside other cuts that include "A Funky Kind Of Thing", "Some Skunk Funk", and "Light At The End Of The Tunnel".

✨✧ CortexLegal Tender ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2020. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Cortex is only a quartet, but the group plays here with a sense of majesty and presence that makes them feel like a much larger lineup – in part because the record is filled with really bold original compositions by trumpeter Thomas Johansson – who then executes his music with a strong sense of power next to the saxes of Kristoffer Berre Alberts! The group also features Ola Hoyer on bass and Gard Nilssen on drums and percussion – and they play with a sense of mission and cohesion that comes through right from the very first note – this mixing of structure and freedom that's right on the money, and which will certainly have us paying more attention to Johansson's music in the future. Titles include "GTM", "Anthem For The Uneasy", "Loose Blues", "Blue Gromka", "I 95", and "Standby". CD

CoultrainAdventures Of Seymour Liberty (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Juju Dust/P-Vine (Japan), 2007. New Copy ... $22.99
Spacey soul from Coultrain – an up-and-coming singer from the St Louis scene, and one with a really unique sort of sound! The album's a wonderful debut effort – far more mature and complex than you might expect, with a really cosmic feel that's somewhere between 70s spacey soul and some of the more future-thinking work from the recent Detroit scene – yet all put together with a sense of timing and phrasing that's clearly Coultrain's own! Rhythms range from mellow and straightforward, to more complicated and angular – and Coultrain's voice is often great enough on its own, but sometimes sounds even better with a bit of flanged-out production. Titles include "Green", "Lilac Tree", "Screw", "Girl Of My Dreams", "Swimmin In The Stars", "Lost In Translation", "Playin Catch Up", "Self Pity", "Who R U", and "Endangered Species". CD

D'AngeloBlack Messiah ... LP
RCA, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... $24.99
D'Angelo comes back after many years awol from the studio – and the result is a stunning new step in his music! We've loved the man from day one – and some folks could well say that he really helped reinvigorate soul back in the 90s – and all his time away from the studio has definitely been formative, as he comes back here with a righteous power that really blows away all his previous work! D'Angelo still loves the slow beat and mellow approach to funk – but he's also picked up a lot more fuzz and freak, too – righteous energy that more than lives up to the Black Messiah promised by the title, as do the lyrics. Instrumentation includes work by Questlove on drums, Roy Hargrove on trumpet, and Jesse Johnson on guitar – and the grooves have these tripping, slow-percolating elements that really give the lyrics a great sort of crackle. More than worth the wait – as you'll hear on titles that include "Back To The Future (parts 1 & 2)", "Sugah Daddy", "Really Love", "1000 Deaths", "Ain't That Easy", "Betray My Heart", "The Door", and "Till It's Done (Tutu)".

De La SoulGrind Date (with bonus instrumentals) ... LP
Sanctuary/BMG, 2004. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99
The first post-Tommy Boy De La Soul album – and it's a winner! We've been on board with De La throughout their long career – anyone with open ears must know that even their spottiest records (and this is NOT one of those) feature at least a handful of treasure tracks. Two songs into Grinda Date you'll find the stellar "Verbal Clap", one of J Dilla's finest blueprint era inspired productions ever, with precise on beat rhymes by De La. Other highlights include "He Comes" with Ghostface, a soulful track that would sound just as great on Ghost's Supreme Clientele. At the time it came out, this was De La's best album since Stakes Is High, we might actually like this one just as much. Featuring production by Dave West, J Dilla, Madlib and 9th Wonder – plus guest appearances by Yummy, Ghostface, Carl Thomas, MF Doom, Common and others. Other tracks include "The Future", "Much More" feat Yummy, "The Grind Date", "Shopping Bags", "Days Of Our Lives" with Common, "Come On Down", "Rock Co. Kane Flow" featuring MF Doom and more.

DeyampertShapes & Colors ... CD
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2003. Used ... $2.99
A monumental debut from Giles Deyampert – sure to be a key player in the sound of 21st Century Soul, and an artist with a sound that's as great as 4 Hero, Koop, Ursula Rucker, or any other artists of that elite rank! Like those we dare mention in the same breath, Deyampert has a great talent for mixing together acoustic jazz and cosmic electronics – soaring to the skies on wings of spiritual soul, and hitting a groove that's as appealing to our ears for the classic as it is our ears for the future! The album features some great work from guest singers that include Heather Clayton, Channeng Payton, Jane Hamilton, Desney Bailey, and Rachel Myers – and there's some wonderful tunes on here we know we'll still be grooving strongly in years to come! Titles include "I Want You To Know Me", "Release", "Santiago Sands (studio)", "Release", "The Sweetest Delusion", "Scorned & Maladjusted", "Song For Kailen", and "Held Him First". CD

George DukeDon't Let Go ... CD
Epic, 1978. Used ... $6.99
A sweet bit of modern funk from George Duke – working here in a mode that's definitely tighter and more soul-based than his trippier albums of the early 70s – but also in a groove that's pretty darn sweet! George wonderfully blends together his jazz roots and some of the wider soul styles he'd helped forge on the California scene – keeping things smooth, but never slick – bringing in some nice acoustic percussion alongside the album's overall electric sound. A number of cuts have vocals, and George handled both production and arrangements – on tracks that include the P-Funky "Dukey Stick", an old sample from way back – plus "Movin On", "The Future", "We Give Our Love", and "Percussion Interlude".

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireThat's The Way Of The World (expanded edition) ... CD
CBS, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, and afrocentric jazz – all expertly handled by the great Charles Stepney, who still has the same rich talent for blending styles that he had while working at Chess/Cadet during the glory days of the late 60s. Some of these songs have been played to death (and covered so much) over the years that it's often easy to forget what a crowning moment this was for former underground soul heroes Earth Wind & Fire – but we'll never cease to be amazed at the power of their mid 70s work, and this album's the best of the best. Titles include "Shining Star", "That's The Way Of The World", "Reasons", "Africano", "See The Light", and "Happy Feelin". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – "Shining Star (future star)", "All About Love (first impressions)", "Happy Feelin (anatomy of a groove)", "Caribou Chaser (jazzy jam)", and "That's The Way Of The World (Latin expedition)".

This will make you wanna get out linoleum, throw on some Adidas, go to a party, hit on the opposite sex, and act retarded – but don't call it old school. . . No, no, no, – this is a sincere love letter to the past, with a sure footed step forward into the future. Nice, thick, juicy, wall of sound production, with beats that break and pop in all the right places, and rhymes that make you laugh and smile and get all "wow" inside. This is hip hop, kids.

Atlantic/Water, 1970. New Copy ... $7.99 17.99
The only album ever issued by this very groovy group – a quartet who wandered from Philly to San Francisco in the late 60s – where they clearly picked up the right sort of energy to let their freak flag fly! Yet these guys aren't totally Bay Area, either – as they've got more of the east coast roots that echo their start in the Philly scene a few years before – almost that mix of tightness and hipness that graced some of the best Long Island groups who were finding their way into New York during the same generation. There's plenty going on here – especially some nice songwriting, and a way of appreciating influences from blues and soul music – yet never coming across as a blues rock band at all. Titles include "Baby Leroy", "Over The Hill", "Ship Of The Future", "West Wind", "Royal Fool", "Lebanese Packhorse", and "Smokehouse". CD

New work from Sidsel Endresen – one of the compelling Norewegian artists currently part of the Jazzland underground future of electronic jazz! Sidsel's one of the few singers to emerge from the scene – and he's got a spare breathy voice that's halfway between Bjork and Jay Jay Johansson – singing in English, but slightly off-kilter because of his accent, and the way the vocals are layered amidst moody electronics and soundscapey backdrops. Music on the album is created with help from Bugge Wesseltoft, Nils Petter Molvaer, and Roger Ludvigsen – and titles include "Angel", "Undertow", "You Cover Time", "Travelling Still", and "Blessed Instant".

Excellent work from Peven Everett – another one of his home-made underground soul CDs, issued by Peven himself as a big "F#$% You" to the major labels that have screwed around with him in the past! The CD is a brilliant mix of soul, jazz, house, and touches of Afro-centric rhythms – crafted in a swirling mix that dips back 30 years into the history of soul, yet still points the way towards a richly positive future – sounding a heck of a lot more "real" than just about anyone else we can think of on the market today, and showing Everett as a burgeoning soul genius – on a par with D'Angelo, Norman Harris, Donnie Hathaway – and, dare we say it, Marvin Gaye. Tracks include "Testin Me", "Stroll By The River", "Run Around", "One More Time", "Puerto Rico", and "Your Letter". 13 tracks in all! CD

Four TopsFour Tops Now! (aka MacArthur Park) ... LP
Motown, 1971. Very Good ... $3.99
It's definitely "now" time for the Four Tops here – as the album has them stepping forth in a host of hipper modes than their earlier work for Motown! The record may not be a classic in the group's catalog, but it's filled with plenty of fresh tunes – both Motown originals and cover versions that are done here in a style that's got some of the heavier, more righteous styles that the Temptations were getting into, and some of the warmer more sophisticated modes that would show up more in the 70s. A real standout is the drum-heavy "My Past Just Crossed My Future" – easily one of the funkiest tunes the group ever cut, with skittish beats that really drive the groove home. Other tracks include "The Key", "What Is A Man", "Little Green Apples", "Do What You Gotta Do", "Opportunity Knock", "Don't Bring Back Memories", and "Wish I Didn't Love You So". LP, Vinyl record album
