✨✧ New MastersoundsIntroduction To The New Mastersounds ... CD
One Note (UK), 2000s. New Copy ... $14.99
A great look at the heavy grooves of The New Mastersounds – one of the hardest working combos in the deep funk underground – with a resume of great music that stretches back for over a decade! The set brings together album cuts, rare singles, and a few surprising numbers as well – making for a really great introduction to the group's work if you've never heard them before – or a nice hole-filler for all the best bits you might be missing from your NMS collection! As always, there's loads of tight guitar from Eddie Roberts, heavy Hammond from Bob Birch, and massive rhythms from Peter Shand on bass and Simon Allen on drums. Titles include "Your Love Is Mine (Fred Everything mix)", "Colorado Sun (Jesse's backyard)", "Can't Old Me Down", "Idle Time", "The Rooster", "Be Yourself", "Rope A Dope", "Your Love Is Mine", "It's All Right Now", "102%", "Tin Drum", and "Turn This Thing Around". CD features the bonus track "Your Love Is Mine (Fred Everything mix)". CD

✨✧ New MastersoundsIntroduction To The New Mastersounds Vol 2 ... CD
One Note (UK), 2000s. New Copy ... $14.99
There's almost no introduction needed to the New Mastersounds – given how much greatness the group has given us over the years – a perennial favorite here at Dusty Groove, both with customers and our own soundsystems as well! But even if you know these funky stalwarts, there's still plenty here to love – as the collection does a good job of bringing together some harder-to-find cuts – work the group has done with other artists over the past decade or so – and some singles and compilation tracks that are hard to find too – great stuff to track down if you missed the original releases! As usual, the guitar of Eddie Roberts smokes the grooves brilliantly – as does the organ, bass, and drums – and titles include "Kuna Matata", "Make Me Proud", "One Note Brown (original version)", "Can You Get It (rmx)", "I Mean It So", "King Comforter", "Talk The Talk", "Bring It On", "You Got It All", and "Wack".

✨✧ New MastersoundsNashville Session 2 ... CD
One Note (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $11.99
The New Mastersounds return to the sweet studio in Nashville that gave us the previous album – but this time around, they change things up a bit – by using a variety of different keyboards instead of their usual Hammond! The core rhythms are every bit as sharp as before – and full of fantastic work on guitar from the mighty Eddie Roberts – but the grooves have a stronger 70s funk sound than before, thanks to the use of Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer piano, and even a bit of Prophet 5! These guys never seem to dim their instrumental talents at all – and a tight instrumental set is a great reminder of all that's made them so wonderful for so many years. Tracks include "Miracles", "Pudding & Pie", "Flimsy", "Thermal Bad", "Yokacoka", and a fresh take on "Dusty Groove". (Thanks for that one, guys!) CD

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/Permission To Land ... 7-inch
Color Red, 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99 9.98
Two funky nuggets from New Mastersounds – each with a special guest! Vocalist Lamar Williams Jr joins the group on "Shake It" – a tune that's almost got a Meters-like starkness to the groove that gets things going – but which takes on a bit more fullness from the vocals, and from the addition of the NMS horn section! "Permission To Land" has very sharp Eddie Roberts guitar in the groove – but also adds in percussion from Jeff Franca – who plays some mighty mean timbales, and changes things up nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Analog SonFunky Mother (purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Color Red, 2019. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
These guys really take the analog in their name seriously – as the sound here is awash in vintage funk elements, all played live, and given some great direction in the studio from Eddie Roberts of the New Mastersounds! The group's a larger ensemble than most funk combos – thanks to a strong horn section – but they manage to make everything come down right on the money, with a groove that's sharp, but nice and warm too! Vocals on some tracks are by Devon Parker and Ashley Niven Fairman – but the group also have their instrumental chops very firmly in place. Titles include "CTI", "No Way", "Boom", "Greens", "Sliders", "Another Brother", "Puppified", "Top Hat", and "Got To Get Down". LP, Vinyl record album

Chance HaydenGet Somethin' ... CD
Ropeadope/Atlanta, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99 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".

Sami LinnaSami Linna Quartet ... CD
Timmion (Finland), 2019. New Copy ... $14.99
Sami Linna might look like some sort of Tyrolean hipster on the cover of the album, but his guitar has been behind a fair bit of great funky work on the Timmion label in recent years – which is why it's great to hear him up front here in the lead! A bit like when Eddie Roberts stepped out from the New Mastersounds to record his initial solo records, the Sami heard here is definitely different – jazzier, with a lot more complexity to his guitar work – at a level that, if the whole thing were issued back in the 60s (and with a different cover) would have had Linna standing strongly next to the greats of that generation. His tone is superb, his phrasing is wonderful, and there's a clean jazzy vibe to the record that's very different than other Timmion funk and soul records – as Linna plays in a drums, Hammond, and some mighty nice tenor sax. Tracks are all long – and titles include "Umoya", "Dreamsville", "Black Mountain", "Mode For Tomorrow", and "Clowns". CD

Bernard Purdie & FriendsCool Down (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Sugar Road, 2018. New Copy ... $19.99
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
