JazzanovaOf All The Things (deluxe 3LP version – with pop up gatefold sleeve & download) ... LP
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2008. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 31.99
A tremendous step forward for Jazzanova – an album that's overflowing with classic soul touches, and done in a style we'd hardly have expected from the group a few years before! Jazzanova have always had an ear for older sounds in their music – which is something that first set them apart from the dancefloor pack – but this album's a really amazing achievement, and one that's put together with the solid sound of some lost late 60s sessions from Motown at points – or with some of the cooler sounds of European jazz of the 70s! There's still a 21st Century vibe to the music – a bit of crackle here and there that marks it as contemporary – but the backings also have tight orchestrations, occasional strings, and that perfectly put-together quality that still makes us marvel at old soul and jazz records after all these years. Vocals are sublime too – as the album features contributions from Phonte, Paul Randolph, Ben Westbeech, Jose James, Dwele, Bembe Segue, and Leon Ware – all of whom fit in perfectly, without any of the sort of random "vocals with sound system" feel you might get in another album of this type. Most tracks are co-written with the vocalist – which is an even hipper touch that ensures a depth of quality – and titles include "Gafiera", "Lucky Girl", "Little Bird", "I Can See", "Look What You're Doin To Me", "Let Me Show Ya", "Lie", and "So Far From Home" – plus a great cover of "Rockin You Eternally". 2019 Deluxe 3LP version comes with a full LP of previously unreleased instrumentals, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download – and comes in a pop-up gatefold sleeve!)

VariousPaz E Futebol 3 – A Selection Of Brazilian Boogie & Disco Goodies 1979 to 1992 – Compiled By Junior Santos (with bonus download) ... LP
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $26.99 32.99
A very cool little set – one that takes off from the later years of the 70s samba soul generation in Brazil, and shows some of the funky changes that took place as the years went on! Junior Santos gave us the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds collection on Favorite Records – and this set follows nicely from the spirit of that set – opening up our ears to work past the more-reissued 70s generation – on titles that include "Chuva De Beijos" by Beto Luiz, "Mais Que Um Momento" by Emilio Santiago, "Som Amor Trabalho E Progresso" by Elza Soares, "Nago" by Carlinhos Santos E Grupo Ceu, "Pungar" by Gerude, "Fofa" by San Rodrigues, and "Por Isso Eu Canto" by Sonia Burnier.

VariousKraut Jazz Futurism 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kryptox (Germany), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
A second great overview of the contemporary German underground – a fertile world of music that shows that plenty has happened over there since the glory days of the Compost and Sonar Kollektiv scenes! The music here is only partly jazz – maybe jazz-inspired, but served up in a variety of modes – sometimes more rhythmic, sometimes more atmospheric – moving between funk, club, and downtempo styles – mostly instrumental, but with occasional vocals in the mix too. Titles include "In The Bottle" by Contrast Trio, "Kolner Strasse" by Love Songs, "The Flounder" by Kuhn Fu, "She Fell" by Perilymph, "Arkomplex" by Ark Noir, "Compost Ghosts" by Le Millipede, "Harzer Strasse" by Modha, "Der Mogul (Kyrptox version)" by GTZ Hoffmann, and "Only When I Sleep" by KUF.
