New MastersoundsBe Yourself (with bonus download) ... LP
King Underground, 2003. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 29.99
A warm return to funky form for the New Mastersounds – working here in an instant-classic groove that recalls the glory days of the Memphis scene! The group's instrumental sound is supported by some extremely burning work on Hammond – sweet and soulful licks that remind us a lot of the sound of Booker T in the late 60s, backed up by some guitar work that shifts easily from uptight and scratchy, to superdope and mellow. The album changes things up nicely from track to track, going for grooves that blend in a lot of different modes, and which show the group to be really expanding their format. Titles include "Better Off Dead", "Six Underground", "Barca", "You've Had It All", "This Ain't Work", "Idle Time", "Your Love Is Mine", "RTA", "Coming Down", and "Be Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

New MastersoundsRenewable Energy (with bonus download) ... LP
One Note (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $19.99
The New Mastersounds must have their own source of renewable energy – as they've been giving us great records for many years now, and still are strongly on top of their game! The core quartet is driven by the funky drums of Simon Allen, the bumping bass of Pete Shand, the sweet keyboards of Joe Tatton, and the always-sharp guitar of Eddie Roberts – and this time around, they recorded in New Orleans, with help from guest trumpet, tenor, and percussion! There's a diversity to the instrumentals that few other funk groups might venture – especially one as classic as this – so that sometimes the keyboards are in the lead, sometimes Eddie Roberts is taking the whole thing over on guitar, and sometimes the whole group is coming down strongly on the groove. Adryon De Leon sings on "Gonna Be Just Me" – and all other tunes are instrumentals, with titles that include "Hip City", "Chicago Girl", "Tantalus", "Pudding & Pie", "Funk 49", "Green Was Beautiful", and "Living That Jazz Life".

✨✧ New MastersoundsShake It (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Color Red, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The New Mastersounds shake it strongly here – still with all the great core energy of their classic quartet lineup – but further expanded with excellent lead vocals from Lamar Williams, plus a bit of tenor and trumpet too! The group have always been funky, but they've got a nicely different focus here when working with a singer – maybe more snapping and sock-soul, yet still driven strongly by the excellent guitar solos of Eddie Roberts too – not to mention Joe Tatton on keyboard, Pete Shand on bass, and Simon Allen on drums! Titles include "Life Life Free", "Lovely Daze", "Kings & Queens", "Love They Deserve", "Shake It", "Let's Go Back", and "Too Late To Worry". LP, Vinyl record album

Chance HaydenGet Somethin' ... CD
Ropeadope/Atlanta, 2018. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
Tight guitar from Chance Hayden – a player who definitely knows how to get a lot of color and tone out of his instrument, even while picking out a sharp note solo! There's a dexterity in Hayden's style that's clearly inspired by the more proficient blues guitarists in recent generations – but the overall sound here is much more jazz funk, with a core quartet that features keyboards, bass, and drums – all in a nicely lean sound that allows Chance to shine in the spotlight at a level that's a bit like Eddie Roberts (of New Mastersounds fame) on some of his solo sets. Jarrod Lawson provides guest vocals on a great version of the Donny Hathaway tune "Someday We'll All Be Free" – and other tracks include "Hung Up On My Baby", "Get Somethin", "Matrix", "Take The Call", "Kissing My Love", "Many Disguises", and "You Mother You".

✨✧ VariousLifetime Groove – Selected & Mixed By Ryuhei The Man ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1970s/2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic funky tracks from host of different sources – all brought together by Japanese DJ Ryuhei The Man – and served up in a blinding mix of tracks that flow effortlessly from one to the other! Most of the work is from the 70s, but there's a few more contemporary cuts in the mix, too – but the overall feel is hard 70s funk – usually of the funky 45 variety, but often with a more extended groove – as a number of these cuts are from rare album sources, which means that there's some great extended jams on the collection – plenty of heavy drums, wah wah guitars, rumbling basslines, and sweet keyboards! Titles include "Scorpio" and "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "My Friend" by Ricardo Marrero & The Group, "Monkey Hips & Rice" by Wooden Glass featuring Billy Wooten, "The Crisis Generator" by The Sound Stylistcis, "Panama" and "Jessica" by Roy Porter Sound Machine, "Chief" by Lettuce, "Deeper Love" by Funkshone, "Your Love Is Mine (Nostalgia 77 rmx)" by New Mastersounds, "I'm Back For More" by Leo's Sunship, "Discover Disco Lover" by The Jazzinvaders, and "Humpty Dumpty" by Placebo.

✨✧ Bernard Purdie & FriendsCool Down (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Sugar Road, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Legendary drummer Bernard Purdie has left a huge legacy of music behind him – and here he adds to that legacy in a new small combo set – one that features core work from members of New Mastersounds and Pimps Of Joytime – and which also features Ivan Neville on keyboards, and Cyril Neville on some guest vocals! The groove here is pretty faithful – the set was recorded in Brooklyn, and doesn't have the too-commercial sound that it might if it were on a major label – and titles include "Elevate", "Cool Down", "Money Bags", "Deep In Love", "Stranded", "Frank Funk", "Better Man", and "The Golden Tie". LP, Vinyl record album
