GalacticRuckus ... CD
Sanctuary, 2003. Used ... $7.99
Galactic get some heavy production from Dan The Automator – really chunking up their groove with lots of bass on the bottom and plenty of low-end sounds! The approach isn't really hip hop, but it does give the group's homegrown funk approach a sound that fits more closely next to modern sample records in the crates – but the real appeal of the record is the way it manages to do this while still holding a lot of appeal for fans of instrumental funk. Titles include "The Moil", "Bongo Joe", "Bittersweet", "Doomed", "The Beast", "Kid Kenner", and "Uptown Odyssey". CD

Sounds Galactic (John Keating/Roland Shaw)Astromusical Odyssey/Nova Sounds Of The Stars ... CD
Phase 4/Vocalion (UK), 1971/1974. Used ... $14.99
Two funky space albums – back to back on a single CD! An Astromusical Odyssey is a fantastic album of spacey funky tracks! The great John Keating put this whole thing together in the years before he cut his more famous space soul albums for EMI – and the record's a wonderful mix of spacey orchestrations, spare electronics, and haunting voices – a wicked journey to the stars with a hip Brit Easy feel! There's a lot more funk here than you'd expect from other Phase 4 albums of this generation – and plenty of the cuts have weird instrumental bits that are just waiting for sampling. The whole thing's wonderful, and titles include "Round Trip Mars", "Aquarius", "Nocturne", "Across The Universe", "Up, Up, & Away", and "Spinning Wheel". Nova Sounds Of The Stars is a second slice of Sounds Galactic work from the Phase 4 catalog – this time headed by Roland Shaw, but in the same moogy modes used by John Keating on the previous album! There's possibly even more cool electronics here than before – lots of cool analogue bits that bubble and squeak nicely – amidst more familiar instrumental modes from the Phase 4 universe, including some nice jazzy touches, bits of strings, and other styles – all blended nicely with plenty of odd production and sound effects! Titles include a great cover of "Pillow Talk", a version of "Live & Let Die", and the Carpenters' "Yesterday Once More" – plus the great "Mon Etoile (My Star)", "Summer", "Get Down", and "Love Is All".

Fog City/Capricorn, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Choppy New Orleans styled funk in the tradition of the Meters, and recorded with a lot of fidelity to the original sound. Not as amazing as the original, natch, but still surprisingly funky with a good earthy sound to it. CD

✨✧ Galactic ExplorersEpitaph For Venus ... LP
Mental Experience (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully free-wheeling sounds from this hip German trio – maybe not one of the biggest groups of the Krautrock generation, but one who definitely earn their name with the music on this album! The set's got a long-spun approach to the tunes, which are all quite long – layers of keyboards that include Fender Rhodes, minimoog, Hammond organ, "Lunatron", and other electronics – mixed with some slight effects, and no other instrumentation at all – which makes for a very evocative, all-instrumental blend of keyboard sounds and styles – as they spin out beautifully in ways that really build a bridge to the sky! Titles include "Lunarscape", "Ethereal Jazz", and "Venus Rising". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ GazzaraPortrait In Acid Jazz ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2017. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Great sounds from Francesco Gazzara – a keyboardist who's given us plenty of wonderful music over the years, and who here is very much back in the classic groove that first got him started! Yet despite the title, this isn't a set of warmed-over 90s acid jazz modes – and instead shows a matured Gazzara really working his best on a host of different keyboard modes – Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, and even a bit of grand piano – set up in a core trio with bass and drums, and augmented by a bit of guitars and other instrumentation from the man himself! Three tracks feature female singers, and Gazzara himself speaks and vocalizes a bit – in this really great way that brings an additional layer of life to the music. Titles include "Jazzid Wonderland", "Heaven", "We Had A Ball", "Sanita", "Into The Night", "Portuguese Soul", "Galactic Cowboys", and "Sunday At Six" CD

✨✧ Lonesome EchoSilver Ocean ... CD
Disorient (UK), 2003. Used ... $4.99
A far-reaching and progressive set of dancefloor grooves from Japanese producers Yasushi Ide and Yoko Ota! The album's got the feel of some of the best work we've heard in recent years from the New York scene – the kind of cross-cultural house-driven projects that always seem to stand out from the pack, and which show that the boundaries of international clubland are quickly fading away! The pair work here with a huge array of guest stars – including Osunlade, Byron Stingily, Liliana Chacian, Nana Vasconcelos, Ken Boothe, U-Roy, Pharoah Sanders, Apani, and Mutabaruka – all to craft some incredible music that is as transcendental as it is groove-happy! Titles include "Spirit Of Drums", "Love", "Celebration Dance", "Soul Galactic", "Ain't No Sunshine", "No Colo Do Mar", "Sweet Dream", and "Gone With The Wind". CD

Reel PeopleRetroflection Remixed ... CD
Reel People (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
Excellent remix version of Reel People's fantastic Retroflection – one that you can almost look to as an equally great alternative version of it – with remixes by Atjazz, John Morales, Terry Hunter, Tall Black Guy, DJ Spinna and others! The warmly collaborative spirit of the original album – with guest vocals by Angie Stone, Navasha Daya, Anthony David, Omar and others – makes this kind of a companion piece a natural fit. The remixers wisely hew to the gliding soul with jazzy touches that make Retroflection such a strong, standout work, while bringing in elements of club soul, jazzy samba, and timeless disco, depending on the producer/remixer. Titles include "Don't Stop The Music (Art Of Tones Modern Disco Mix)", "I Want To Thank You (Sebb Junior Remix)", "Thinking About Your Love (Da Brownie Remix)", "Keep It Up (DJ Spinna Galactic Funk Remix)", "I'm In Love (Buscrates Remix)", "Buttercup (Terry Hunter Main Club Mix", "Always There (Scott Diaz Funk Excursion)", and "Can We Pretend (Tall Black Guy Samba Remix)".

✨✧ Robert Walter's 20th CongressMoney Shot ... CD
Fog City, 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer album of soul jazz from Robert Walter – most famously known as the keyboardist with the Greyboy All Stars, but a killer player in his own right, and the leader of the soon-to-be famous 20th Congress! The group features some killer drumming by Stanton Moore of Galactic – and the combination of his funky drums, Walter's spacey keyboards, and horn work by other members of the group makes the album a non-stop funky jazz gem, with the same sort of hard-jamming excitement you'd find in the band's live shows. Titles include "Shemp Time", "White Russ", "Rack & Pinion", "Instant Lawn", and a version of John Patton's classic "The Yodel". CD

✨✧ Stanton MooreAll Kooked Out! ... CD
Fog City, 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
The funky drummer with Galactic teams up with guitarist Charlie Hunter and sax maestro Skerik for a long set of funky grooves with an excellent 70s soul jazz feel! The scope of the work is pretty darn complicated – in a good way – and the tracks range from straight-ahead Prestige-type jazz funk grooving, to more complicated spiritual numbers that are almost in the mode of early Gary Bartz. Titles include "Witch Doctor", "Nalgas", "Common Ground", "Stanton Hits The Bottle", and "Boogaloo Boogie". The CD's also "enhanced", and plays with a multimedia package on Macs or PCs! CD

✨✧ Stanton MooreEmphasis (On Parenthesis) ... CD
Telarc, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
A (completely) terrific and (totally) powerful jazz funk trio set from Galactic drummer Stanton Moore – even if we don't know why all the tunes have parenthesis! There's no question that the set is emphatic – with Moore just killing it on the kit – backed just as dexterously Robert Walter on B3, toy piano and clavinet, and Will Bernard on guitar. There's a bottom heavy groove that we just love, with complex, unpredictable changes, but nothing that's too far out there. Jazzy funk & instrumental rock(ish) jams with loads of space for the players to breathe and do their thing without ever wearing out their welcome. This might be Stanton's best to date. Tracks include "(Late Night At The) Maple Leaf", "(Proper) Gander", "Wissons (Of Vu)", "Over (Compensatin')", "(Who Ate The) Layer Cake, "(Here Come) The Brown Police" and more! CD

✨✧ VariousDJ Spinna Presents The Sound Beyond Stars – Essential Remixes – Part 1 ... LP
BBE (UK), 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The mighty DJ Spinna has a way of making already-great music sound even greater – by using just the right sort of soulful touch to augment subtle elements in the original tunes that might have otherwise gone overlooked – to unlock a richer, more righteous energy that really serves the tunes well! And while we've loved Spinna's remix work on countless singles over the years, we're even happier to hear it all in one place like this – in a nicely overstuffed collection that has so many great Spinna touches, it could well be a Spinna album on its own – especially since the DJ always has such a warmly collaborative relationship with so many different artists. Vinyl part 1 includes the exclusive cuts "The Power (DJ Spinna acid row mix)" by Karizma and "Got To Let It Go (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Angela Johnson – plus "You Can't Lie (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Kerri Chandler with Harley & Muscle, "I Remember Love (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Yvette Rovira, and "Moonlight (DJ Spinna galactic soul voc)" by Bah Samba.

Stardrive with Robert MasonIntergalactic Trot ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1973. Used ... $3.99
Space jazz for the 70s – a classic batch of synthesizer fusion from keyboardist Robert Mason, whose groove here is totally great! The album's got rhythms that are rooted in rock, but executed in jazz – making for a chunky, funky sound that really helps this album cross over nicely! Mason's synth work is really great – spinning and spiraling out into the cosmos, but held firmly in line with drums from Steve Gadd, percussion from Bruce Ditmas, and a range of saxes from Michael Brecker. Electronics really dominate the set – in a good way too – making the album one of the first of its kind for the era, alongside work by Patrick Gleeson and other artists who'd take this sort of thing to the nth degree! Titles include "Rushes", "Stardrive", "Everything At Once", "Intergalactic Trot", and "Want To Take You Higher". CD

✨✧ Stu PhillipsBattlestar Galactica ... LP
MCA, 1978. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Stu really surprised us all with this one – working in full orchestral mode on a great set of dramatic themes that almost beats John Williams at his game! The work was scored for the great 70s TV sci fi flick Battlestar Galactica – and overall, most of the tunes are orchestral ones, done in the highly dramatic and action-charged style of work that was revived strongly on the Star Wars score. But the album also features a nice disco tune – "It's Love Love Love", sung by the Space Angels! Other titles include "Cassiopia & Starbuck", "Destruction Of Peace", "Fighter Launch", "Escape From The Ovion Mines", "Let's Go Home", and "Dash To The Elevator". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaMy Brother The Wind Vol 1 (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Saturn/Cosmic Myth, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 31.99
A stone classic – and one of the wilder, more electronic albums from Sun Ra – a set that has him playing on "two moog synthesizers" – which both sound as if they're going at the same time! The rest of the group is quite small – with only John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Danny Davis – so Ra really center stage on the keys, and spends most of the record making some really weird and wonderful sounds on the moog – showing the world that, although the instrument was already gaining popularity in the hands of others, nobody could handle the futuristic sound machine like the spaceman himself! The mix of moog with avant jazz solos is completely sublime – and titles include "Intergalactic II", "To Nature's God", "The Code Of Interdependence", "The Perfect Man (complete tracking session)", and the 17 minute "Space Probe"!

Reuben Wilson & OthersBoogaloo To The Beastie Boys ... CD
Scufflin, 2004. Used ... $8.99
A rich set of funky jazz workouts of Beastie Boys tunes from B-3 legend Reuben Wilson – leading a wonderful quartet with Andrew Beal on sax, Doug Munro on guitar and LaFrae Olivia Sci on the kit! The groove runs from laidback and lightly funky, to midtempo 70s cop show soul, to straight up deep funk riffery – done in a way that lets Reuben and crew jam however they're feeling it – and not always corresponding the style the Beasties sampled and/or played on their own recordings! The set list is deep and surprising, too – cuts like "Namaste", "Hey Ladies" and "Something's Got To Give" (featuring Bernie Worrell on Rhodes) are ripe for this kind of interpretation – but tracks like "Cookie Puss", "Egg Raid On Mojo" and "Intergalactic" – original compositions that ranged from punk, to electro, to just plain manic – are adapted just as strongly to funky jazz. Other tunes include "Sabotage", "Shadrach" and "Shake Your Rump". CD

✨✧ Sun RaContinuation (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saturn/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1963. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing music from Sun Ra & The Arkestra – sounds recorded during the same marathon session that gave the world the records Other Planes Of There, When Sun Comes Out, and When Angels Speak Of Love – but titles that are much more obscure overall! The initial release of the material featured very misleading notes, but the true details of the session are even more impressive – as Ra plays a variety of unusual instruments alongside piano – including the piano strings, space organ, and clavioline – alongside some sublime straight horn work from John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on alto and oboe, Pat Patrick on baritone, Danny Davis on alto and clarinet, Walter Miller on trumpet, Robert Cummings on bass clarinet, and Ali Hasaan on trombone! The lineup here has that raw power the Arkestra first unleashed after their initial move to New York – almost a sense of new freedom in the new environment – even at a time when they weren't clicking on a financial level, but still continued to push forward with new ideas in music! Some passages have this great approach that links the cosmic ideas of the Arkestra with older traditions of jazz soloing – while others reflect the growing concern of the group with new textures and sounds – making for some very impressive elements on both the horns and percussion. The group is completed by Ronnie Boykins on bass, Art Jenkins on space voice and percussion, and Tommy Hunter on drums, percussion, and some mighty nice reverb – and titles include "Biosphere Blues", "Intergalactic Research", "Earth Primitive Earth", "New Planet", and "Continuation To Jupiter Festival". Beautiful 2CD reissue features sublime sounds from the original tapes, remastered – plus a full bonus CD of unreleased tracks that include "Blue York", "Conversation Of The Universe", "Red Planet Mars", "Cosmic Rays/Next Stop Mars", "The Myth", "Meteor Shower", "Infinity", "The Beginning Of", and "Endlessness".

Columbia, 1978. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A cool cooker from Maynard Ferguson – and a set that has all the upbeat tones you'd expect from the title, but lots of funky currents underneath! The set really sparkles right from the start – and has that sweet vibe that Maynard was really getting perfect on these late 70s records for Columbia – jazzy fusion that's tight, but never too uptight – with lots of room for sweet solos from the leader himself, plus Bill Hannon on moog, John Qdini on guitar, Eric Traub on tenor, and Mike Migliore on alto. Titles include a famous working of Earth Wind & Fier's "Fantasy" – plus "Battlestar Galactica", "MF Carnival", "Baker Street", "Birdland", "How Ya Doin Baby", and "Stella By Starlight".
