Jeff MajorsFor Us All (Yoka Boka) ... LP
Glass Wing/Invisible City Editions (Canada), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A very unusual shift for spiritual jazz in the 80s – a set that combines the acoustic energy of the 70s with some newer electric touches – all in a way that takes off with some soulful elements in the mix! Jeff Majors handles a harp – ala Dorothy Ashby – but the music mixes in bass, drums, and percussion – plus work from Majors on a moog bass and "spirit box" – the last of which feels like a spare drum machine, and is used in nicely gentle ways. There's also a bit of violin, flute, and voices on the record – occasional lyrical touches that almost hit a Minnie Riperton mode, which is very nice. The whole thing makes for a nice blend of spiritual jazz and down to earth soul – on titles that include "Room 400", "Summertime", "If I Can Help Somebody", "Nomad", "Baby Daughter", "Yoka Boka", and "Yasmeen". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited reissue – with a nice booklet of notes!)

Soul ConnectionStreet Soul ... LP
Invisible City Editions (Canada), Late 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Fierce funky work from this late 80s UK duo – contemporaries of Soul II Soul, Loose Ends, and some of the other big British acts of the time – but a pair who never fully got their due! The "street soul" title here is really well-placed – as the grooves have a style that's an evolution of earlier electro modes – warmed up nicely, in the style that Jazzie B and his generation were bringing to the scene – but maybe still lean enough in construction to still appeal to fans of the previous generation! Two tracks here get a bit clubby, but in a good way, and the others are more in a midtempo groove, nicely bouncing along with the beats – on titles that include "R U Available", "Change/Love", "In & Out Of Love", "It's All Over", "Waiting 4 Your Love", and "The Way Love Is". Great package – with a bonus booklet with an interview by Jeff Chairman Mao! LP, Vinyl record album
