Jonny Benavidez & Cold Diamond & MinkLet's Get Together (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet soul from Jonny Benavidez – a singer who's got a voice that takes us back to the late 60s era of work by Ralfi Pagan and Joe Bataan – and who comes across here in an equally heartbreaking mode! Cold Diamond & Mink provide some nicely stepping grooves in the background, warmed by a bit of horns – and the group play solo without any vocals on the flipside! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jukka Eskola Soul TrioTiny B/Stick Of A Branch ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
Two killers from the Jukka Eskola trio – a wonderful blend of trumpet, organ, and drums! "Tiny B" has this fluid vibe that's almost like some lost 60s soul jazz number, sweetened up by Jukka – and "Stick Of A Branch" is a bit more complicated, rhythmically – which sends the trumpet over the top in these great leaping lines! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ernie Hawks & The Soul InvestigatorsScorpio Man ... CD
Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99
Ernie Hawks looks right out of the 70s on the cover – with his long hair, fringe jacket, and fiercely-held flute – which he mixes here with some great grooves from the Soul Investigators, in a vibe that's maybe even better than classic! The album's all instrumental, and has this fantastic sound that's way different than the usual contemporary funk set – nicely trippy at times, with echo and other effects applied to the instrumentation – and a strong ear for the overall sound, not just the power of each member of the group! Hawks is often out front, soloing with a funky flute sound – but he also handles vibes, pianoman, and trombone – in a very cool lineup that also has Martti Vesala on wah-wah trumpet, and Jimi Tenor on saxophone. All tunes are original, and they're really fantastic – each the kind that if you found on a rare soundtrack or lost jazz album, you'd be willing to pay plenty to own. Titles include "Still Trippin", "Bag Full Of Miracles", "Cold Turkey Time", "Scorpio Walk", "Windy City Blues", "Journey To The Bottom", and "Street Of Tears". CD

Gerald McCauley with Cold Diamond & MinkWondering (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2019. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
The sweet soul vocals of Gerald McCauley sound wonderful here – delivered with this slow, heartbreaking pace that really fits the mellow funk laid down by Cold Diamond & Mink – almost making the whole thing feel like a classic New Jersey/Philly gem from back in the day! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Emilia Sisco with Cold Diamond & MinkDon't Believe You Like That (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $8.99
Cold Diamond & Mink provide some killer slow funk backing here – so much so that the tune's already got this great moody vibe before Emilia Sisco comes in with the lyrics – which have a heartbreaking vibe, and work with the funky backings almost like a classic tune by Ann Peebles from back in the day! The instrumental's mighty nice too – kind of like a second helping of funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Carlton Jumel Smith1634 Lexington Avenue ... CD
Timmion, 2019. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The long-overdue debut of Carlton Jumel Smith – a soul singer with roots at the Harlem address listed in the title, and who's slowly been working his way around the globe in recent years! Those global travels are key to the success of this set – as Smith works very tightly in Finland's Timmion studios with Cold Diamond & Mink – who bring to his music what the Dap-Tones or El Michels have brought to other singers in the deep funk spectrum! Yet the sound here is definitely different than those efforts, too – as Smith is a soul stylist with a nicely open range – able to hit some late 60s sweet soul moments at times, then going for deeper, more righteous sounds at others – all of which really fit the instrumental range of CD&M, who get a bit of help on horn arrangements from Jukka Eskola, in addition to their usual tight sound at the core. Titles include "Love Our Love Affair", "I'd Better", "You Gonna Need Me", "Help Me", "Woman You Made Me", "We're All We Got", and "I Can't Love You Anymore". CD

Carlton Jumel Smith with Cold Diamond & MinkI Can't Love You Anymore (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
A contemporary cut, but one that's got a great early 70s sweet soul vibe – as Carlton June delivers this fantastic heartbreaking lyric, while the Cold Diamond & Mink combo give him a slow funk drumbreak backup! The flipside's an instrumental – which lets you focus even more on the funky drums, bass, and horns! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Willie West & The High Society BrosLesson Of Love (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2010. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Sweet funky soul from Willie West & The High Society Bros! "Lesson Of Love" is a steady groover, with the vocals delivered in something of a laidback style, but with a depth of true soul emotion that really pushes it into sublime territory. Instrumentally. it's got the drums prominent for a funky backbone, plus some sweet guitar, organ and brass backing. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Willie West & The High Society BrothersLost Soul ... LP
Timmion (Finland), 2014. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
A new album from the great Willie West – an artist we love for his rare vintage New Orleans work of the 60s and 70s – still sounding surprisingly wonderful all these many years later! Willie's vocals have this raspy, honest charm that's totally great – and like Lee Fields during his revival years, West gets superb backing from a small combo of younger players who really appreciate the best roots of the music – tight but unpretentious grooves that feel just like a vintage 45, and suit Willie West to a T! The style is less New Orleans than it is a more righteous, sophisticated version of funky soul – one with some nice dark corners that really raise our opinion of Willie's talents – again with the sort of deeper vibe we love in the recent work by Lee Fields. Titles include "Slow & Easy", "Cold In The Storm", "She's So Wise", "The Devil Gives Me Everything", "Getting Down", and "I'm Aware Of What You Want". LP, Vinyl record album

Willie West & The Soul InvestigatorsI Just Can't Leave You Alone (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
Massive drums really get this one going – a hard, heavy, almost-classic drum break that begins the tune – and sounds great next to the more easygoing vocals of Willie West – as he brings a great deep soul touch to the tune, alongside this floating flute played by Jimi Tenor! There's lots more flute on the flipside – an instrumental that really lets you enjoy the drums! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sami Linna QuartetMode For Tomorrow/Umoya ... 7-inch
Timmion, 2019. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a record from Finnish guitarist Sami Linna – just a 45, but one that feels like it's got the depth of a full album! "Mode For Tomorrow" is this beautifully building tune with a mix of modal and spiritual energy – infused with organ by Mikko Heleva, and given this tremendous tenor solo by Jussi Kannaste! Drummer Dana Hall wrote "Umoya" – and his snapping rhythms really keep things moving – as the organ, guitar, and tenor soar to the skies – almost with the energy of an old Larry Young tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Carlton Jumel Smith with Cold Diamond & MinkThis Is What Love Looks Like (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2019. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky drums, descending horns, and riffing guitar really set the scene here in a great way – giving the track a gentle groove, but one that's nice and warm too – a perfect foil for the deep soul vocals of Carlton Jumel Smith, a singer who may well be one of the best discoveries so far on the ultra-hip Timmion label! The whole thing feels like some southern soul burner from way back – and even the instrumental is mighty nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eric Boss (Myron & E)Modern Love (with bonus download) ... LP
Mocambo (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
The solo debut of Eric Boss – a singer you might know as part of the duo of Myron & E – who gave us some great harmony soul records on Stones Throw and Timmion! Here, Eric is a much straighter soul singer overall – working with a sharp funky punch in the backings, with plenty of Mighty Mocambo help that you'd guess from the record's placement on their label! Tunes move nicely between 60s and 70s funky soul modes, but often with a more complex, contemporary vibe on the rhythms – and although the set features guest work from Gizelle Smith and Gift Of Gab, Eric hardly needs any help to make a strong statement on his own. Titles include "Bad Luck", "Closer To The Spirit", "I Wanna Ride", "Spiders", "Get Next To You", "Forward", "Merry Jane", and "Your Life Is Up To You". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby OrozaThis Love ... LP
Big Crown, 2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A really fantastic full length set from Bobby Oroza – a moody take on blue-eyed soul, with a vibe that's completely its own! Oroza has some fantastic help here – production and music by Cold Diamond & Mink, the combo who've given such a fantastic sound to Timmion Records soul singles over the years! Bobby's got a sweet soul style that's already great – but it really takes off here in the company of the Finnish musicians – who also recorded the whole set with Bobby at the Timmion studios, which makes the whole thing sort of a joint project between the two creative forces! The lean, sinister quality we always love in Cold Diamond & Mink's music really helps shape the sound of the vocals – and Bobby himself also plays guitar and organ on the record. Jimi Tenor adds guests flute in a few spots – and tracks include "Bobby's Mood", "Your Love Is Too Cold", "Keep On Believing", "Maybe Maybe Maybe", "This Love", "Down On My Knees", and "There Can Be No Love".
