CherrelleAffair ... CD
Tabu, 1988. Used ... $5.99
A Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis classic – and key proof that their pairing with singer Cherrelle was a mighty good thing! Cherrelle's got a voice that's perfect for the beat-heavy approach of the pair – light enough to dance around the rhythms, but bold enough with a presence all its own, too – a quality that helps keep most of these tunes pretty darn catchy, while still staying in front of some of the blander mainstream soul of the time. The groove here is practically early new jack at times – with some great influences from hip hop and electro in the mix – and titles include "Looks Aren't Everything", "Affair", "Discreet", "Everything I Miss At Home", "Keep It Inside", "My Friend", and "What More Can I Do For You".

Femi KutiFemi Kuti ... CD
Tabu, 1995. Used ... $12.99
Early album by Femi Kuti – a tight bunch of tracks that picks up where his father's work left off, taking the classic 70s Afro Funk sound firmly into the 90s. By that, we don't mean that Femi's adding in any extra garbage to the music – because the overall sound is very much in the straight sound that Fela was using – but just that things are tightened up a bit in a modern funk mode. Titles include "Nawa", "Survival", "Frustrations", "Plenty Nonsense", "No Shame", "Live For Today", and "Changes". CD

Sharon RidleyFull Moon (with bonus track) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few full albums ever cut by the great Sharon Ridley – a hell of a great singer from the east coast scene, and one with the fullness of the best club divas of the time – but an approach that goes way way deeper overall! There's a sexy slink to the album that echoes Ridley's previous gem for Sussex – but the style's a bit more modern soul, with some sweet arrangements co-penned by Jerry Peters – who works with Sharon here to really push the envelope of her sound! Sharon sings with a bit of jazz at times – in ways that almost echo the best work of Marlena Shaw – and the set really shows a presence that goes way beyond most of Ridley's contemporaries. Titles include "Changin", "Just You and Me", "Full Moon", "Guess I'm Gonna Have to Say Goodbye", and "Nothing Else Means More To Me Than Our Love" – and a remake of "You Beat Me To The Punch". CD features a bonus track – "Changin (single version)". CD

✨✧ Lamont JohnsonMusic Of The Sun ... LP
Tabu, 1978. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A soaring solo moment for Lamont Johnson – the bassist whose work was a big part of the Brainstorm ensemble at their start – and who really makes some great magic here on his own! It's clear from the set that Johnson was one of the more spiritual members of Brainstorm – as the approach here, while still heavy on funk and soul, also has some deeper touches too – core ideas from Johnson that are expanded strongly by arranger Jerry Peters, whose direction of the project stands as one of his best studio moments of the time! The team of Peters and Johnson really come up with a set that pushes past the usual grooves of the time – with some elements that recall the jazzier spiritual elements from folks like Eddie Russ or Lonnie Liston Smith, mixed with more of the focus on the groove that Johnson's bass brought to Brainstorm. There's lots of great guests on the record, too – including Norma Jean Bell on saxes, Renae Williams on vocals, Ronnie Foster on keyboards, Lee Ritenour on guitar, and Randall Jacobs on the mighty cool Roland Space Echoplex guitar. Titles include "Sister Fine", "Hey Girl", "Music Of The Sun", "This Must Be Heaven", and "Yours Truly Discreetly". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SOS BandOn The Rise ... LP
Tabu, 1983. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet sweet grooves from the SOS Band – definitely on the rise at the time, but still sounding great, with all the best elements of their early work firmly intact! The core group are very much at home in the studio – and have this cohesive sound that really comes through right away – leading off with some big numbers produced and arranged by the team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis – a few of which really pushed up the charts – then stepping into some of their own production work with help from Gene Dozier, who definitely brings more of a funky feel to the proceedings! Lead vocals are mostly handled by Mary Davis, but a few tracks feature Abdul Ra'oof up front – and titles include "Just Be Good To Me", "Tell Me If You Still Care", "For Your Love", "If You Want My Love", "On The Rise", and "Steppin The Stones".

✨✧ CherrelleWoman I Am ... CD
Tabu, 1991. Used ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked later album from one of the biggest singers on the legendary Tabu Records label – a sweet set from Cherrelle that has her stepping along in some great gentle grooves! As with some of the other mainstream R&B at the time, the label's got production and arrangements from a fair bit of different talents, which creates a sense of variety from track to track – but at least half the set's handled by Narada Michael Walden, who keeps things in that warmly glowing mode that seems to work really well with Cherrelle's vocals at this point – and which almost hearkens back to her earlier releases. At a few points, the grooves get a bit (then) contemporary, and Cherrelle's strong range really keeps pace – and titles include "Still In Love With You", "7 Days A Week", "Baby It's You", "Tears Of Joy", "Gee Whiz", "Nothing's Ever Gonna Stop", "Where Do We Go From Here", and "Love Me Tonight".

Tabu, 1990. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Bouncy, beat-heavy soul from Mary Davis – a set that's almost got a new jack vibe at times, thanks to the dynamic energy of the production! Mary's voice has its own sense of power that really matches the groove – and the shift is a nice late Tabu extension of the label's previous modes with the team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Bernard Terry handles about half the production of the set, and helps keep things balanced between catchy numbers and a few more serious cuts – and other producers include LA & Babyface, and Derock & Kayo. Titles include "Separate Ways", "Don't Wear It Out", "I Wanna Be Sure", "Have You Ever Been Loved", "Sweet Obsession", and "I'm Gonna Love You Better". LP, Vinyl record album

Alexander O'Neal is working here with classic production help from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis – who help O'Neal update an older Christmas soul mode for a contemporary generation – all while keeping true to a traditional spirit in the music! Alexander's vocals are a key part of the success of this album – working at a timeless level that's kept this one in strong Holiday play for many many years.

✨✧ SOS BandToo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The SOS Band's second album – and a masterpiece of 80s groove! The album's wonderfully tight, and wonderfully right on the money – held together like a pile of money dipped in honey – keyboards, bass, percussion, and vocals all sweetly grooving with that post-70s funky feel that the group virtually invented at the time! These guys have a way of putting over a groove that few of their contemporaries could ever match – never too commercial, always with plenty of passion, yet also as razor-sharp as any combo like this could ever hope to be. A few mellow moments round out the set nicely – and titles include "Are You Ready", "For The Brothers That Ain't Here", "Unborn Child", "Stay", "You", "There Is No Limit", "Do It Now", and "It's A Long Way To The Top". CD features the bonus tracks "Do It Now (long)" and "Do It Now (parts 1 & 2)". CD

✨✧ Alexander O'NealAll True Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic set from all-true Alexander O'Neal – and maybe one of his last great records for the Tabu label! The set's got a nice balance of groovers and mellower moments – really showing the growing diversity of O'Neal as an artist, as he tries to move away from some of his bigger ballads. The rhythms are often handled by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis – who themselves are going for a leaner style than in the 80s, yet still have that undeniable funky punch in the mix! At tines, Alexander's not leading the songs so much as stepping into the grooves – but at other times, he comes as the strong singer that first emerged in the mid 80s. Titles include "What Is This Thing Called Love", "The Yoke", "Time Is Running Out", "All True Man", "Midnight Run", "Used", "Shame On Me", and "The Morning After". Bonus tracks include "All True Man (classic club mix)" and "Sentimental (edit)". CD

Don CunninghamSomething For Everyone (180 gram pressing) (2020 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Luv N' Haight, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A strange little record – but one with some very groovy moments! The album is a rare relic from the St Louis scene of the early 60s – cut by the combo of Don Cunningham, the house act at that city's Playboy club at the time! Don borrows heavily from the styles of Martin Denny, Bobby Montez, Earl Grant, and Nat King Cole – but he also puts the work together with a jazzier edge than you'd expect, one that makes for more than a few really great moments that have made the album a treasure for groove hounds for years! The album sports a mad reading of "Quiet Village", one that has the band getting really crazy with percussion and birdcalls, hardly "quiet" at all! The real standout, though, is the group's cover of "Tabu" – done with a great percussion break on the intro, and a chugging Latin groove that's sure to burn up any dancefloor! Also great is the album's two Brazilian-tinged numbers – jazzy remakes of "Manha De Carnival" and "Samba De Orpheus" – both of which feature some great percussion! LP, Vinyl record album

One of the best early albums by Ferrante & Teicher! The record has less of the studio effects of their Westminster albums – but it does feature some killer firey twin piano pyrotechnics, with the same sort of goofy manipulation of the strings and piano innards as on the Soundproof album. Includes nice crazy versions of tracks like "Tabu", "Oye Negra", and a totally great version of "Caravan". Great groovy experimental piano craziness! LP, Vinyl record album

Boddhi Satva18 ... CD
BBE (UK), 2020. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 18.99
A double-length collection of work from Boddhi Satva – a retrospective of sorts, as the package features tracks from the past 20 years of his career – but maybe more of a special celebration of his talents, as the album brings together special projects, collaborations, and under-exposed mixes and tracks! As with all Boddhi Satva's music, there's a quality here that matches his African roots and role in the contemporary global scene – music that resonates strongly with the vibe of key collaborators on the package – who, with Boddhi Satva, have helped forge a new sense of cross-cultural growth in house music that will continue for years to come. Titles include "Manda Island" by Afefe Iku, "See The Day" by Alton Miller & Boddhi Satva, "Until Our Work It's Done (Boddhi Satva's ancestral rmx)" by Gabriele Poso, "Born Again (Boddhi Satva & Mr V retouch)" by V, ""Moina Ya Mokili" by Boddhi Satva & Abel Tabu, "Into The Shadows (Boddhi Satva ancestral soul rmx)" by Jay Tripwire, "Mama Kosa" by Boddhi Satva & Kaysha, "Kanga Mutu" by Boddhi Satva & Spilulu with H-Baraka, "Sweet Brown Sugar" by Boddhi Satva with E-Man, "The Depth Of The Source" by Boddhi Satva featuring Yuba, "Belma Belma" by Boddhi Satva & Maalem Hammam, "God Is Love (Boddhi Satva ancestral soul mix)" by DJ Pippi vs Danny Marquez with Marcel, and "Bria's Offering" and "Big Theme" by Boddhi Satva himself.

A great record from Augie Colon – Martin Denny's Latin percussionist, and the force behind some of his best records! Augie's portrayed on the cover as a "sophisticated savage" – which is the way he grooves too, taking a bit of exotic sounds, weaving them with some highly percussive rhythms, and throwing in a bit of a Latin approach. The album's way more swingin' than a Martin Denny album, and features special guest vibes by Julius Wechter. Tracks include "Colon", "Tambo", "El Doctor", "Tabu", "Okolehau", "Manuela Boy", and "Minamahal Sinsamba". LP, Vinyl record album

A really amazing all-star project from Bill Lawell – one that hearkens back to that amazing criss-crossing of sounds and styles he created in the 90s – music that was, in part, made with some of Laswell's collaborators on this session! The tracks are all nice and long, and feature work from Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Pharoah Sanders on tenor, and other guests who include Peter Apfelbaum, Jerry Marotta, Hideo Yamaki, Adam Rudolph, and Satoyasu Shomura – all working in a mode that has some of the Laswell soundscape qualities of the past, but also maybe more of a spiritual vibe overall! There's less of the elements in those previous records that can sometimes sound a bit dated, and Bill's bass is right up front at some of the best moments – played with long-spun textures that are mighty nice, and which again seem to sound better than his work in years past. Titles include "Tabu", "The Seven Holy Mountains", "Golden Spiral", and "Shadowline". CD

Jorge BenTabua De Esmeralda – Grande Discoteca Brasileira Vol 9 ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1974. Used ... $19.99
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar – sweetening things up with a bit of the strings you'd find on Forca Bruta, but with a hint of the soul to come on Africa Brasil! The balance is great – thanks to arrangers Osmar Milito, Darcy De Paulo, and Hugo Bellard – and as usual, Jorge's vocals are the main attraction – dipping, turning, and rising with this really unique, personal feel – Ben-like brilliance at its brightest. The whole thing's wonderful – a key gem from the Philips years – and titles include "Cinco Minutos", "Zumbi", "Brother", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas", "Errare Humanum Est", "Menina Muler Da Pele Preta", "Hermes Tri", and "O Namorado Da Viuva".

Laidback beats with plenty of boom – just the right sort of mellow setting to allow the rhymes to flow in the best way possible – core lyrics from Emcee Sick, with contributions from Cudtry Cadillac, Dheema, and Jon Blazini! There's a nicely jazzy current – almost in an early 90s Tribe Called Quest style, but more individual, as the best instrumental touches are live, and less tied to the historical references that samples might provide. Both the rhythms and lyrics are nicely straightforward – again a nice sort of throwback, but hardly retro at all – on titles that include "Pstabull", "Finesseful", "Basso", "Indestructible 92", "Big Bad Signal", "Anotha Monday Nite", and "Wanderverse".

The group has a drum-tight performance throughout – with Phil Woods on alto and Donald Byrd on trumpet providing an especially strong frontline – every bit as sharp as the best heard on Woods' seminal records from the same generation, but touched a bit more by some of Wallington's more introspective modes of later years. Rhythm is by Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the album strikes a perfect balance between modern expression and personal interpretation – on titles that include "In Salah", "Up Tochickon Creek", "Dis Mornin", "Indian Summer", and "Sol's Ollie".

One of the rarest albums ever from bop pianist George Wallington – a quintet session recorded for Atlantic's short-lived East/West subsidiary, right around the same time as his better-known group dates for Prestige! The core trio features Wallington alongside Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the sharp-edged and imaginative tenor of JR Monterose appears on all tracks but one – a few of which also feature incredible bass trumpet from Jerry Lloyd! The sound is often more modern and inventive than Wallington's other non-trio dates of the 50s – somewhat playful, but also dominated by a deeper sense of soul – heard especially strongly on the Monterose compositions "The Prestidigitator" and "Jouons", as well as the Mose Allison numbers "In Salah", "Promised Land", and "Rural Route" – all slightly unusual choices for Wallington!
