Seun Kuti & Egypt 80Black Times ... LP
Strut (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 28.99
Some of the most righteous and furiously funky Afro Soul since Fela Kuti's prime – and it's beyond appropriate for such a committed, perfect personification of a classic sound via a modern player come from Fela's own son Seun! As strident as Seun's approach is, much like his father at his best, the call for revolution is as personal and soulful as it is political – this is a universal that's as riveting as you'd hope. Joined by veterans of the Egypt 80 band that Fela helped form back in the day, and featuring guests as legendary as Carlos Santana – who sounds SO good in a supporting roll on an Afro Soul tune – and modern soul jazz heavy Robert Glasper, this is among the finest new albums on the Strut label in years. Includes "Last Revolutionary", "Black Times" feat Carlos Santana, "Corporate Public Control Department (CPCD)", "Kuku Kee Me", "Bad Man Lighter (BML)", "African Dreams", "Struggle Sounds" and "Theory Of Goat And Yam".

✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... LP
Warner, 1977. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, a name in pen, and a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Man's TheoryJust Before Dawn ... LP
MCA/Rollers, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet bit of ensemble soul from the mid 70s – produced with a full sound that makes for some great mellow cuts, and a few decent uptempo numbers. The group's got a very righteous feel overall, and a few shades more towards the raw, and this one would be the kind of rare 70s soul classic that would change hands for top dollars. It's still pretty darn great, though – and the band mixes in a lot of jazz with the funky instrumentation, going for a complete and coherent sound that reminds us a bit of Mandrill crossed with some of the more underground New York groups of the time. Paul Griffin plays plenty of nice keyboards and also helped with arrangements and production – and titles include "Just Before Dawn", "The Party", "I've Always Needed Someone Like You", "Creek", "Mama", "Good News", "Great Expectation", and "Hard Times". LP, Vinyl record album

Musiq SoulchildFeel The Real ... CD
E One, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 17.98
Musiq Soulchild has been making music for many years – the man virtually invented the beats n keys format back at the start of the century – and he's still got the sharp crackle and classic depth that won us over to his sound back in the day! This double-length set is completely unassuming – almost casual, if it wasn't so tight – as Musiq layers his vocals perfectly amidst some heavy, head-nodding beats and spacious keyboard fills – all with maybe more 80s modes than on his earliest records – but at a level that's never too easy or cliched. The set includes guest appearances by Marsha Ambrosius, Willie Hyn, The Husel, Chris Theory, Blaqgxld, and even Neil DeGrasse Tyson – on titles that include "Humble Pie", "Feel The Real", "Benefits", "Serendipity", "Let Go", "Test Drive", "Broken Hearts", "Shudawudacuda", "Start Over", "My Bad", "The Moon", and "Sunrise Serenade".

Josh LawrenceContrast ... CD
Posi tone, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Trumpeter Josh Lawrence works here with his Color Theory group – a great name for the combo, given how vivid they can be with their many hues! The music is soulful and swinging, yet also quite lyrical too – maybe in modes that recall some of the late 60s Blue Note work of McCoy Tyner or Horace Silver, but much more horn-heavy overall – as Lawrence blows alongside Caleb Curtis on alto and David Gibson on trombone – both players who are very well-suited to the mission of the group. Zaccai Curtis plays piano – and Fender Rhodes on one track – and Orrin Evans guests on the acoustic keys on two tunes. The group's completed by Luques Curtis on bass and Anwar Marshall on drums – and most tunes are originals by Josh, with titles that include "Accompanied Contrast", "Circles On Black", "Dominant Curve", "Blues On The Bridge", and "In The Black Square".
