✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Ethnic Heritage EnsembleBe Known Ancient/Future/Music (deluxe 2LP edition) ... LP
Spiritmuse, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $41.99 44.99
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".

FloatersFloat Into The Future ... CD
MCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1979. Used ... $4.99
Smooth stepping grooves from The Floaters – still very much in the nicely compressed mode of their more famous debut, and getting some nice production help here from Eugene McDaniels! There's a righteous punch to the record that really shows the influence of McDaniels – a way of keeping things hip, even when hovering near the mainstream – and although the groovers are great, we actually think that the best cuts are the mellow ones – tunes that move in a lightly gliding, almost spacey way – one that has the group's voices crackling nicely with an honest approach that we really love! There's a warmth to these tunes that's undeniable – and titles include "Levitation", "Woman Love/You Are My Lady", "Brand New Lite", "Made Up My Mind", "The Best Of Our Love", "Go Down To The Disco", and "Sweet Lady September".

FruuppWise As Wisdom – The Dawn Albums 1973 to 1975 (Future Legends/Seven Secrets/Prince Of Heaven's Eyes/Modern Masquerades/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Dawn/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99
Very unusual music from Fruupp – a group who issued these four albums on the always-unusual Dawn label – one of the most-trusted UK prog imprints of the early 70s! The sound of Fruupp is a bit hard to peg – as they're very proggy on their debut, but also clearly have a strong ear for more tuneful moments – almost like they've secretly got a few pop songs they're waiting for expose at the right time – although maybe that's just the production, because as things move on, the group more strongly embrace this vaguely medieval aesthetic, although again always with shorter tunes that feel like they could easily become hits in the right hands. Part of that quality is from the strength of the instrumentation, which really focuses the energy of the songs – even when the group is moving off into oboe or flute territory next to their guitars and keyboards. The box set features all four albums with original cover art – Future Legends, Seven Secrets, Prince Of Heaven's Eyes, and Modern Masquerades – plus the bonus tracks "Prince Of Heaven", "Jaunting Car", and "On A Clear Day".

Pantone (UK), 2005. Used ... $1.99
An expanded version of the first Jafrosax album – one that drops the price on their expensive Japanese debut, and brings in a few bonus remix tracks as well! The set has Jafrosax mixing keyboards, beats, and a bit of sax with some great guest vocals from Vikter Duplaix, Yukimi Nagano, Gagle, Sonya Rogers, and others – a style that shifts from instrumental to lyrical modes with a fluid, spacious feel – picking up a lot of London vibes along the way, and exploding with a righteous 21st Century soul feel that's really great! Titles include "In The Morning", "Wait & See", "Hi Tech Jazz", "Free", "Room In Your Heart", "Going To The Sky", "Drawn 2 U", "Rollin", and "Shin Ku Kan" – plus bonus remixes "Drawn 2 U (Studio Apartment rmx)" and "In The Morning (Faze Action Present Orto rmx)".

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 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

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! The work here is from a wide range of the soulful underground – not just Neo Soul, but work inspired by a number of different styles and modes – selected and spaced perfectly by Radhu, so that the freshness of one track really seems to infect another! We honestly hadn't heard of most of the artists here before – as they're true "bubblers", picked from the lesser-known corners of the underground. Titles include "Calm" by Gdna, "Silence (midnight mix)" by Jevon Reynolds, "Shangri La" by James Tillman, "Diligence" by Stephanie Nicole, "Intoxicated" by Joomanji, "Fallen" by Rippy Austin, "Where Did We Go Wrong" by Anu Sun, and "Ultraviolet" by Aisha Mars.

It's a little slicker than their earlier material but it's just as intense in it's own way! The songs are "Future Days", "Spray", "Moonshake", and the 20 minute long "Bel Air". LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful album of hip jazzy vocals from Urszula Dudziak – an amazing singer who was sort of Poland's version of Flora Purim! Like Flora, Urszula had a fierce scatting and riffing style that broke way past the work of earlier female jazz singers – and she always applied this style to some wonderfully catchy arrangements and tight grooves, using the voice as a heavily fused-up instrument. Also like Flora, Urszula had some good help from her husband – Polish jazz legend Michal Urbaniak, who produced and played on the album, along with friend of the family, the wonderful altoist Zbigniew Namyslovski. Tracks include a great version of Komeda's "The Cats", plus the tracks "Moontag", "Future Talk", "Klick", "Quiet Afternoon", and "Double Bounce". CD

Tim BuckleyLady Give Me Your Key – The Unissued 1967 Solo Acoustic Sessions ... LP
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".

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.

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBlack Gladiator ... CD
Checker/Future Days, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wicked reinvention of the sound of Bo Diddley – a set that electrifies his groove even more than before – and takes him into the same mix of funk and blues that Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf were exploring at the time! This album's right up there with the two Cadet/Chess classics by both of those artists – and is possibly even more messed-up too – with lots of jagged edges that push past the usual Bo Diddley groove – even though that classic sense of rhythm is still at the core to drive things along! We don't know who's playing drums, but they've got a nice heavy handed approach that makes these tracks really boom – and the set's in a massively funky style that's taken far too many years to be acknowledged for in the mainstream! Lots of nice ones, including "Shut Up Woman", "Funky Fly", "Power House", "Black Soul", "Elephant Man", and "I've Got A Feeling". CD

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".

Future Days, 1967. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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".

A great record from folk rock oddball Michael Hurley – with spare, ragged little solo guitar & vocal tunes that greatly showcase both Hurley's easygoing, slowly rolling along vocals, as well has his piercing, high emphatic howls– plus more fleshed out tunes with the band, full of groovy, eccentric instrumentation. 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. The album includes a Hurley staple or two, including "Werewolf" – plus "Grand Canyon Line", "English Nobleman", "Be Kind To Me", "Troubled Waters", "Sweedeedee", "Open Up", "Jocko's Lament", "Light Green Fellow", "Get The Best Of Me", "Biscuut Roller", "When The Swallows Come Back To Capistrano" and "Penguins".

✨✧ Lee MosesTime & Place ... CD
Maple/Future Days, 1971. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ Third PowerBelieve (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vanguard/Future Days, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hell of a heavy record from this obscure Detroit combo – a trio who only ever cut this one rare album for Vanguard, but who work with a fuzzy frenzy to rival the MC5 or Stooges at the time! The shaggy sounds of Detroit burst strongly from the grooves right from the start – and there's also a current of some of the deeper, darker work coming out of the UK at the time too – the kind of post-Cream material that was bubbling up in the years before heavier metal, given a nicely sinister spin by Third Power! The set was amazingly produced by Samuel Charters – a name more associated with folksy and bluesy projects – and Sam also plays a bit of piano and organ with the group, too. Titles include "Gettin Together", "Passed By", "Like Me Love Me", "Crystalline Chandelier", "Won't Beg Anymore", and "Lost In A Daydream". CD features 11 bonus tracks – two from a Baron Records 45, and 9 more unreleased numbers from their second album – with titles that include "It's So Hot Outside", "Streets Of Heaven", "Cartune", "Got A Hold", "We You I", and "Snow".

Polydor/Future Days, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A weird and wild little record – and one that came as quite a surprise to folks who'd previously known Link Wray as the king of the raunchy guitar instrumental in the 60s! 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".

✨✧ Lee MosesHow Much Longer Must I Wait – Singles & Rarities 1965 to 1972 ... CD
Future Days/Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from Lee Moses – an underground funky soul singer who never saw great fame in the 70s, but who's hit legendary status in recent years – thanks to collectors and DJs around the world! Lee is best known for his album Time & Place, but he also cut a number of other excellent singles before and after that famous set – most of which are collected here, along with a few unissued tracks – all making the whole album a fantastic second chapter in the too-short Moses career in music! Much of this work has a very gritty vibe – southern soul, handled with funkier currents – often with production that's nice and raw around the edges, which makes these tracks feel way deeper and dirtier than anything that might have come from Memphis or Muscle Shoals. The set's a bit short on notes, so we're not sure of the details of all cuts – but we can say that the singles were originally issued on the Dynamo, Gates, Front Page, Musicor, and Lee John labels – with titles that include "Bad Girl (parts 1 & 2)", "You Are Too Much For The Human Heart", "I'm Sad About It", "How Much Longer", "My Adorable One", "Diana", "Day Tripper", "Reach Out I'll Be There", "I'm Sad About It", "If Loving You Is A Crime", "She's A Bad Girl", "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "What Do You Do", and "I Can't Take No Chances".

RCA/Future Days, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums by offbeat jazz singer Annette Peacock – one with a loose, very innovative vibe in arrangements – with some pretty darn cool electronics! Annette not only has a strong voice, she's fearlessly creative in her use of it! On this album, her vocals are often processed through the electronics, in a way that's a good couple decades ahead of the curve, but never in a way that comes even close to denigrating her strength as a singer. At times, she's screaming like Betty Davis in a funky mode, at others she's getting raw and dirty in a Tom Waits vein, and at others she presages 80s club oddities like Klaus Nomi! Somehow these divergent modes work together, making this one of the most unique and trailblazing albums of Annette's career! Includes the funky break track "Pony", a pretty compelling number, plus "I'm The One", "Been & Gone", "Love Me Tender", "Blood", "One Way", "Gesture Without Plot", "Did You Hear Me Mommy?" and "7 Days".

First Word (UK), 2012. Used ... $9.99
Not Afrobeat, but Astrobeat – a unique hybrid of older funk modes and contemporary cosmic touches – all served up beautifully by Ariya! The album definitely echoes older modes from the Ethiopian scene of the 70s – particularly the chugging rhythms and tightly vamping instrumentation that you might know from the work of Fela or Tony Allen – but there's also some more 21st Century elements on the keyboards, which have a crackling bit of electricity that goes beyond the usual electric piano used back in the day – and which really helps give the record a different feel. Don't get us wrong – because nothing here is too slick, overproduced, or remix-heavy – the music is definitely Afro Funk at the core, just inflected in some really sweet ways – and served up mostly instrumental, on cuts that include "Blood In The Water", "Turncoat", "Future Ancestors", "New Frontiers", "Towards Other Worlds", and "Old Ground".

Rhymesayers/Epitaph, 2003. Used ... $3.99
Atmosphere returns wielding their signature sound full force! What they've come out with this round is by far their most experimental – definitely fresher and more distinct than the "safety" of God Loves Ugly. 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 rock, seventies rock, and folk rock (any 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". "Good Times", "Keys To Life Vs 15 Minutes Of Fame", "Reflections" and more. CD

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.

Working here with producer Jim O'Rourke, the band finds a whole new sound without losing their oddball charm, really drenching it with heavy synth and keys.

The music is future-thinking jazz at the core, but has lots of complexity along the way – changes in tone and rhythm that never lose the groove too much, but which also show that you can do lots more in jazz than just straight swing or free improvisation! Robert Mitchell provides lots of Fender Rhodes and other keys – and while the vocals of Hirst don't dominate the tracks, she provides a righteous message that really gives the record a lot of direction and power. Another fantastic gem from the contemporary London scene – with titles that include "Don't Let Them", "Magic Money Tree", "What Did I Do", "Representation", "These Days", "Security", "They Come Over Here", and "Uncle James".

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.

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.

Dease always has a fantastic ear for color and rhythm – and that really comes through here, as he works with a fantastic lineup that features Steve Wilson on reeds, Renee Rosnes on piano, Gerald Cannon on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums – all players that have an equal mastery of color, which really comes through as the album moves on! The Dease approach to phrasing is fantastic – maybe in a space between JJ Johnson and Curtis Fuller during their classic years – and as you might imagine, Rosnes and Wilson are a delight, too. Titles include "Shortcake", "Frenzy", "Lament", "Milestones", "A Harmonic Future", "I Wish I Knew", and "For Hofsa". CD

The artist at the center of the first 18 tracks on the CD is German producer & MC Dexter – crafting beats pay homage to blueprint jazzy hip hop beat geniuses like Premier this generation's jazz cognizant producers like Madlib as well as the jazz greats like Ahmad Jamal, Yusef Lateef and others. Titles include "The Future", "Piano", "One For Yusef", "Heavy Horns", "Spaceways". "Astro Thoughts", "WR Anybody", "Raw Jazz", "Sounds Great Les", "Swing Is A Must", "Sonny Ray", "Deep In The Juju" and more.

Titles include "Don't Fight It", Cannibal Love", "Anutha Journey", "Crum Break", "Ole Woam" and more. Fellow Vienna producer Mella does his thing on the remaining tracks – an unpredictable mix of funky drums and spacey atmospherics, all with nicely raw edge.

Earth Wind & FireEarth Wind & Fire/Need Of Love ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of spiritual soul classics – the rare early Warner Brothers albums from Earth Wind & Fire – back to back on a single CD! Earth, Wind & Fire's first album was recorded at a time when the group recently had ties to the Chicago soul and jazz scenes, and a range of experience that ran the gamut from work with Sun Ra, the Artistic Heritage Ensemble, The Pharoahs, Ramsey Lewis, and countless other influential groups. Headed up by Maurice White on drums and percussion, the group forged an amazing blend of all these influences, creating a future soul sound that pushed black music to the next level – taking a wealth of previously underground modes of expression, and fusing them into a soaring sound that would soon put them at the top of the charts. This album's a lot looser and freer than their Columbia albums – with plenty of raw funk and some nice off-beat jazz soling. Includes the classic break track "C'Mon Children", plus "Fan The Fire", "Bad Tune", and "Moment Of Truth". Need Of Love is one of the two early Earth Wind & Fire LPs recorded for Warner – and the one that shows their amazing roots in the avant-garde jazz scene in Chicago! At the forefront, the record's a righteous soul album with an ensemble funk sound – but deeper in, there's a lot of jazz-based playing, and a number of moments that almost get "out" in the solos! Surely this one couldn't have been made without the spiritual advancements in jazz made by the AACM – and EWF couldn't have helped rubbing shoulders with those players, considering that they all often gigged together in the Chicago studio scene, and that they'd also shared some time together in groups like The Pharoahs and Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble. Titles include "Energy", "Beauty", and a nice remake of Donny Hathaway's "Everything is Everything". CD

Electro Keyboard OrchestraElectro Keyboard Orchestra ... CD
Columbia/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
Electric keyboards galore – and a sweet 70s album from Japan! The set features a large group of Japanese keyboard players – all playing Korg synthesizers, in styles that range from laidback and mellow to upbeat and funky! The group's got core backing by a tight rhythm combo – electric guitar, bass, and drums setting up the pace on some of the most driving numbers – but overall, most of the sound is from the electric keys – making for a really groovy little record that's got lots of cool 70s soundtrack touches, and plenty of tracks that sound like they were lifted off of American cop or crime scores of the time! Titles include "The Fire Dance", "Mother Of The Future", "Mayflower", "Ironsides", "Heated Point", "Soaring Seagull", and "The African Dawn". Great break on "The Heated Point" too! CD

Carlos GarnettBlack Love ... LP
Muse, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A 70s soul jazz classic – one of those albums we go back to again and again over the years for inspiration! The album was one of the first from young reed player Carlos Garnett – and it's virtually a super-session for the time – with a sublime lineup that perfectly blends spiritual jazz with funk and soul touches! The vibe here is incredible – far deeper than even on any of Garnett's other albums of the time – at a level that sounds as beautiful on the mellow cuts as it does on the soaring, spiritual soul jazz anthems that have made the record a classic for years. The record features vocals by Dee Dee Bridgewater and Ayodelle Jenkins – and instrumentation from Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Mauricio Smith on flute, Reggie Lucas on guitar, Norman Connors on drums, Mtume on congas, and Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano – plus Carlos himself on tenor, alto, and soprano sax. Titles include the perennial favorites "Mother of the Future" and "Taurus Woman", two cuts which transformed the global jazz dance scene years back – plus the tracks "Ebonesque", "Black Love", and "Banks of the Nile".

Very cool sounds from the amazing Eddie Harris – a live set, cut at the popular Newport Jazz Festival – but one that's arguably even freakier and more freewheeling than some of Eddie's studio work for Atlantic! Eddie's horn is really plugged in for the set – a Varitone, which is blown with a rich variety of tones – including some very far out, echoey modes at the start – then fused into a sharper, soulful groove later on! The group's also got some really wonderful electric piano from Jodie Christian – and include Louis Spears on bass and Bob Crowder on drums – and the legendary Eugene McDaniels joins the quartet for some very hip vocals on one cut too. Titles include "Don't You Know The Future's In Space", "Carry On Brother", "Walk Soft", and "Silent Majority". CD

Martha HighNothing's Going Wrong ... CD
Blind Faith (Italy), 2019. New Copy ... $11.99
Martha High has a hell of a legacy in soul music – one that includes early work with James Brown, and a surprisingly strong run of recent records that includes this well-crafted gem! Martha's singing here with a younger group from Italy, but the sound is very old school throughout – and maybe even better than some of the treatment that High ever received back in the day – a beautiful blend of funk and soul elements, with plenty of space for the lady to stretch out in the lead and really do her thing! And although many younger funk groups have singers of their own vintage up front, this set's a great reminder that sometimes the old school talents are still the best – as you'll hear on "Walked Away", "I Sing America", "Nothing's Gone Wrong", "Land Of Broken Promises", "I Still Have A Lot To Learn About Love", and "Face My New Future".

TDK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... About April 17, 2020 (delayed)
Groundbreaking work from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – recorded on an early trip to New York, back in 1970, working with a sextet that includes some of his own Japanese players, like drummer Motohiko Hino and pianist Hideo Ichikawa, plus the great American bassist Reggie Workman! The album features 2 very long tracks – "Gongen" and "Peace & Love" – both a bit free, and infused with a post-Coltrane sense of spiritual exploration. Hino's really changing his style a lot in this setting – taking a lot more chances than on earlier Japanese sessions, reaching out towards a future jazz approach for the 70s. LP, Vinyl record album

Honey ConeSweet Replies (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Hot Wax/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
The second album by Honey Cone – and the one that really broke them out of the box! The record's got a groove that gets going right from the start – a sense of upbeat, soulful energy that really shows why the Honey Cone approach was so different than most of the girl groups who came before them – a groovier, more righteous style that shows that the ladies are very much in charge – and able to send things over the top with their unified energy! Production is great – very rumbling and bold, which further helps the groove – and titles include the huge hit "Want Ads" – a pre-disco cut that pointed the way towards future female soul groups of the mid 70s – plus "Deaf Blind Paralyzed", "Sunday Morning People", "My Mind's On Leaving", "We Belong Together", and "Blessed Be Our Love". CD features two bonus tracks – "Want Ads (unedited version)", and "The Day I Found Myself (single version)". CD

Elmo HopeLast Sessions Volume 2 ... LP
Inner City, 1966. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The last work ever recorded by pianist Elmo Hope – one of the most brilliant modernist talents of his generation, right up there with Monk and Herbie Nichols for sheer inventiveness! The material here shows Hope still burning brightly in the last years of his life – hitting the keys of the piano with a freely creative style that's really wonderful – angular and modern, but always filled with a sense of warmth – quite different than any of his predecessors, and a good deal of most future players to come as well! The material was recorded in 1966 for the Festival label – and features Hope working with a trio that includes John Orr on bass and Clifford Jarvis on drums, with some occasional guest work on drums by Philly Joe Jones on drums on a few tracks – all spare trio sides, but pretty darn wonderful nonetheless. Titles on this second volume include "Elmos Blues", "Stellations", "I Love You", "Night In Tunisia", and "Bertha My Dear" – and tracks are even longer and more drawn-out than on volume one!

Chuck Jackson may be Mr Everything in the title – but there's one thing he does especially well on this classic 60s album – deliver a rock-solid sort of heartbreaking soul – the sort that few others could touch at the time! Jackson often doesn't get his due in the history books these days – but records like these were landmark moments of pride, power, and open male emotion – of the sort that went onto inform generations of soul music to come – and help future artists find their way, guided by the emotional frankness of Jackson's approach! Backings are carefully balanced – tight, but never too polished to overwhelm Chuck's vocals – which soar out with a raw power that blows away Sam Cooke or some of Jackson's other contemporaries. Titles include "D-5", "I Need You", "Human", "I'm Your Man", "Tears Of Joy", and "Somebody New". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most soulful combos we've heard from the UK in recent years – a really wonderful group with a keenly jazzy edge! Jersey Street blend acoustic percussion and bass with light electronic touches – mooging it up at just the right points to give the tracks a cosmic feel, but never going too far to dampen the organic soul of the work. That side of things is especially enforced by vocalist Dawn Zee – a really soulful singer who puts the whole thing together, and gives the record a real depth that we hardly expected. A wonderful bit of future soul that will be around for years – with titles that include "Born Again", "Rhythm Of Love", "Always Something Wrong", "Body Soul & Mind", "I Travelled The World", and "When Lovers Meet".

Alphonso JohnsonMoonshadows/Yesterday's Dreams/Spellbound ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A great run of records from Alphonso Johnson – the best of his career, wrapped up here in one sweet set! First up is Moonshadows – one of the earliest of bassist Alphonso Johnson's funky fusion albums for Epic! Moonshadows is a nice little set of choppy grooves that recalls the best Herbie Hancock moments of the early 70s, plus some of the side projects of the Headhunters. Warmly funky, but with a nice edge – with a more jazz funk rooted sound than the later, slightly heavier Spellbound! The great group of players includes Patrice Rushen is on keyboards, Benny Maupin on reeds, Lee Ritenour on guitars, Airto Moriera on percussion, Gary Bartz on sax, plus Narada Michael Walden and Ndugu Chancler on drums. Tracks include "Stump", "Cosmoba Place", "Involuntary Bliss", "On The Case", "Amarteifio", "Pandora's Box" and the breezy "Up From The Cellar", which features vocals by Flora Purim! Yesterday's Dreams is a killer all-star session of funky fusion tracks – with a nice tight sound produced by Skip Drinkwater! Yesterday's Dreams differs a little from Alphonso's other strong mid 70s efforts in that it's not as spacey as a whole – but the rubbery, cleanly funky grooves are just as strong – and the record as a whole makes for more of a showcase for his excellent group of players! Bassist Johnson leads the session, but there's a huge amount of guests, such as Grover Washington, Patrice Rushen, Mike Clark, and Sheila Escovedo. Plus, Jon Lucien, Diane Reeves, Flora Purim, and Phillip Bailey all sing on the record! Titles include "One To One", "As Little As You", "Scapegoat", "Show Us The Way", "Tales Of Barcelona", and the future soul classic "Love's The Way I Feel 'Bout Cha". Spellbound is a soulfully spacey fusion set from Alphonso Johnson – with a really catchy sound! The maestro is working in an eclectic mode that's part Earth, Wind, & Fire, part Return To Forever, and part Alphonze Mouzon/Tommy Bolin jamming. The best moments on the record are the more straight ahead ones – which really flirt with chunky rock sounds on the other side of the rubbery fusion funkiness! Mouzon's working on all kinds of electric sounds on this one – a bunch of custom bass effects, steel drums and more – with Clyde Criner working with a long list of keys and synthesizers, Kevin Shireve on guitar and David Igelfeld on drums and percussion. Titles include "Face Blaster", "Summer Solstice", "Bahama Mama", "Nomads", and Moonlight Conversation" "Feelings Are. . .The Hardest Words To Say" and "Earthtales Suite". CD

Kidami sings and plays both harmonium and synthesizer – using both instruments in these strange, offbeat ways that are both ancient and future at once – carving out slow-flowing waves of sound that merge the vocals and keys, while her group really expands out with imaginative energy – soprano sax and a bit of moog from Matt Nelson, bass from Nick Dunston, and drums and "electronic sensory percussion" from Max Jaffe.

The first release in the Madlib Medicine Show series of releases from the prolific genius that is Madlib – this one a full scale collaboration with no nonsense rapper Guilty Simpson – sort of a prelude to Guilty's OJ Simpson LP with Madlib in the production booth! The set is a pretty sharp confluence of Guilty's heavy-toned street knowledge and Madlib's hazy funk atmospherics – kind of a strange bedfellows situation, but it works fully well! Many tracks are billed as OJ Simpson remixes, possibly tripped out and funked up versions as a taste of what's to come – with appearances by MED & J Dilla. Titles include "Ode To The Ghetto" (OJ Simpson rmx), "Yikes" (OJ Simpson rmx), "Further", "Lucky Guy", "Pigs" (OJ Simpson rmx), "Life Goes By", "The Paper", "Looking For Trouble", "Young Guns" feat J Dilla, "American Dream & Future" (OJ Simpson rmx) and more.

Curtom/Rhino, Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99 34.98
A massive package of greatness – the first four solo albums from Chicago soul genius Curtis Mayfield! First up is Curtis – a record that not only foregrounds all the subtle politics he'd been forging in the Impressions during the 60s – but one that also really has Mayfield exploding as a force to be reckoned with in the studio! The album's a personal masterpiece – to the career of Curtis what the early solo albums of Issac Hayes were to his own genius – a bold, unfettered statement of pride and power – of the sort that would both make Mayfield and the Curtom Records label forces to be reckoned with in the 70s. Every cut is a classic – and titles include "Move On Up", "If There's a Hell Below We're All Gonna Go", "Miss Black America", "Wild & Free", "Give It Up", "The Makings Of You", "The Other Side Of Town", and "We the People Who Are Darker Than Blue". Roots is one of our favorite Curtis Mayfield albums ever – a massive early 70s effort that's filled with wonderful songs all the way through, and quite possibly one of the most perfect realization of the righteous vibe of the early 70s Curtom years! Curtis is in fine form throughout – as a singer, composer, and producer – but he's also got some excellent Chicago soul help from arrangers Riley Hampton and Johnny Pate – both key talents on the 60s Windy City scene, still able to come up with a deeply soulful groove here – and both able to blend together strings and funk in the way that Curtis was going for at the time. Titles include the massive "We Got to Have Peace" – a tune that never gets old – plus "Underground", "Keep On Keepin On", "Now You're Gone", "Get Down", "Love To Keep You In Mind", and "Beautiful Brother of Mine". Back To The World is pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, and far-reaching arrangements that still always manage to groove! And Curtis' vocals are great too – echoing out with a newfound presence that far surpasses the raspy quality of his early work with The Impressions. Arrangements are by Rich Tufo, production is by Mayfield, and titles include "Future Song" (aka "Future Shock"), "Keep on Trippin", "Can't Say Nothin", "Back To The The World", and "Right On For The Darkness". Sweet Exorcist is a wonderfully wicked album from Curtis Mayfield – one that's not nearly as famous as his Superfly set, but which is every bit as great! The groove here is lean, mean, and totally righteous – a bit more stripped-down than some of the rumbling funk of other Curtom efforts, and served up with a fluid groove that makes the album a killer from start to finish! As with Superfly, there's a nice blend here between uptight funky tracks and some more laidback soul – showcasing both sides of the Curtis Mayfield sound of the 70s – the brash society-changing soul, and the mellower, more fragile voice that first came to prominence in The Impressions. Titles alone tell you the vibe of the record – and they include "Ain't Got Time", "To Be Invisible", "Kung Fu", "Suffer", "Power to the People", and "Make Me Believe In You". All albums newly remastered – in sleeves with the original artwork too! CD

The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, and far-reaching arrangements that still always manage to groove! And Curtis' vocals are great too – echoing out with a newfound presence that far surpasses the raspy quality of his early work with The Impressions. Arrangements are by Rich Tufo, production is by Mayfield, and titles include "Future Song" (aka "Future Shock"), "Keep on Trippin", "Can't Say Nothin", "Back To The The World", and "Right On For The Darkness". Sweet Exorcist is a wonderfully wicked album from Curtis Mayfield – one that's not nearly as famous as his Superfly set, but which is every bit as great! The groove here is lean, mean, and totally righteous – a bit more stripped-down than some of the rumbling funk of other Curtom efforts, and served up with a fluid groove that makes the album a killer from start to finish! As with Superfly, there's a nice blend here between uptight funky tracks and some more laidback soul – showcasing both sides of the Curtis Mayfield sound of the 70s – the brash society-changing soul, and the mellower, more fragile voice that first came to prominence in The Impressions. Titles alone tell you the vibe of the record – and they include "Ain't Got Time", "To Be Invisible", "Kung Fu", "Suffer", "Power to the People", and "Make Me Believe In You". All albums newly remastered – in sleeves with the original artwork too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hugo MontenegroGood Vibrations ... LP
RCA/Victor, 1969. Very Good ... $0.99
Pre-moog work from Hugo Montenegro – but a set that's still pretty darn groovy! The Beach Boys reference in the title is very well put, as Hugo's using some cool harmony vocals for the record – a chorus that definitely takes some of its inspiration from Brian Wilson, singing here both with lyrics, and some wordless modes – not on every track, but used enough to give the record a really Sunshine Pop sort of appeal! Other instrumentation is great too – electric bass underneath fuller strings, offbeat woodwinds, fuzzy guitar, and even a bit of whistling – which has a cool sort of electronic feel. The blend of sounds is amazing – very unique, and already showing that Montenegro's one of the hippest talents of the 60s. Titles include "Classical Gas", "Rosemary's Baby", "Night Rider", "Lady in Cement", "A Future Left Behind", "Tony's Theme", and "Good Vibrations". LP, Vinyl record album

Mohammad Reza MortazaviRitme Jaavdanegi ... LP
Latency (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $24.99
A really cool criss-crossing of modes from percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi – a musician who handles a range of older Persian instruments on the set, but also produced the album with a fair bit of echo and effects – so that the acoustic instruments crackle with deeper, more electric vibes – almost folding the future into the ancient, with really mindblowing results! The cover is a bit short on notes, but it does sound like most of the music comes from percussion played in quick, cyclical modes – then abstracted somewhat by the production, but in ways that are complex, and very free from obvious gimmicks. Titles include "Roaming Pulses", "Taken By The Wind", "Riding Time", "Tears Of A Fakir", and "Exploring". LP, Vinyl record album

Mr ChopSilver Frequencies ... CD
Now Again/Five Day Weekend, 2009. Used ... $2.99
An overlooked chapter in the Mr Chop canon! Coz Littler, aka Mr. Chop, has been a beacon in the future groove cosmos for years now – filtering his love for spacey 70s psych funk through classic-era hip hop beatcraft in a distinctive, irresistible way – and he's uber-prolific, too. In fact, he's so prolific, we somehow snoozed through the release of '09's Silver Frequencies, probably while playing the heck out of For Pete's Sake, which came out that same year. Better late than never! Silver Frequencies is up there with his best stuff – with heavy drums, killer Rhodes, Hammond and other cosmic keyboards, fuzzy guitars and unshakable rhythms. Titles include "Silver Frequencies", "Feathers On Fire", the amazing "Psychic Psych" (with some great guest sax by Colin Lamont, "Outside My Door", "Hole In The Sky", "Magic Box", "Flashbacks", the 7-part "Intermezzo", "Ends And Means Dub" and many more. CD

Farewell" and an excellent version of "Waters of March". Warm and breezy, with that perfect style that Murphy had for a brief while in the 70s – and which has continued to be such a huge influence on groovers today! LP, Vinyl record album

Sunny MurraySunny Murray (ESP) ... LP
ESP, 1966. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the greatest albums on ESP – and a darkly-tinged document that points strongly towards the future of jazz at the end of the 60s! The album's one of the most focused of the early ESP years – and it features drummer Sunny Murray stepping out strongly as a leader – working with players who include Jacques Coursil on trumpet, Byard Lancaster and Jack Graham on alto saxes, and Alan Silva on bass – all with an intensity that prefaces some of the players' later freedoms on the French scene at the end of the decade, and modes to come during the loft jazz years of the 70s! The horns are never too free, and they come together in a flurry of sharp edges that reminds us a bit of sound structures in Archie Shepp's work at the time – but almost more organic and open overall. Titles include "Phase 1234", "Hilariously", "Angels & Devils", and "Giblet". LP, Vinyl record album
