Ego Ella MaySo Far (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
A British singer with a wonderfully fluid feel – a voice that slides right into a tune, wraps around the keyboards and other instrumentation, and picks up this special sort of glow along the way! The album's very heavy on Fender Rhodes, which are almost a second sort of voice on the record alongside Ego Ella's lead – this great grounding in organic modes that allows some of the spacier touches of the production to take off in a nice way, yet all without knocking the warmly soulful spirit of the music off course. On some numbers, May has this crispy charm that especially wins us over – and titles include "Come On", "Underwater", "Tea & Sympathy", "How Far", "Head", "Rush Hour Crush", and "Being Loved". CD features two bonus tracks – "Waiting" and "Pay My Bills". CD

Nostalgia 77 OctetBorderlands ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2006. Used ... $5.99
The continuing evolution of one of our favorite bands in years – and another amazing record from the Nostalgia 77 Octet! Although these guys started out in the funk/sample mode of some of their contemporaries at Tru Thoughts, they've evolved tremendously into a live jazz outfit – working here in styles that range from the spiritual soul jazz of the early 70s to some tighter, more funk-based modes – all delivered with incredible instrumentation and a boldly confident sound! There's a level of writing and arrangements here that matches Impulse Records at their best post-Coltrane brilliance – complicated horn passages folding into one another, then opening up for searing solos and some more groove-based rhythms. And production is great too – clear, clean, and never attempting to interfere with the power of the performance – a rarity these days, and even further proof that the Tru Thoughts label is plenty willing to take some great chances with its music! Titles include "One For Nan", "Question", "Layer Lines", "The Cat", "Tad More", "Lotus Tree", and "Chorale". CD

Quantic & Nidia GongoraAlmas Conectadas ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2021. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A beautiful collaboration between Quantic and Colombian singer Nidia Gongora – a set that's got a depth that we hardly would have imagined from Quantic's music at the start! Make no mistake, we've always loved Quantic's records – and he's gone farther than most of his contemporaries in really moving his love of his influences to his own skills too – from sampling old records, to making new sounds that stand out even more strongly as records on their own. Yet here, Quantic really outdoes himself – and comes up with a record that's steeped in traditions of older Colombian music – with lots of percussion and other acoustic instrumentation in the mix, and a rock-solid lead presentation from Nidia Gongora – a singer who feels as if her entire life has been leading up to some fo these tunes. Part of the set is instrumental, but most tracks are vocal – and titles include "El Avion", "Vuelve", "Concella", "El Chician", "Balada Borracha", "Adorar La Sangre", "Orozul", "Pronto Alivio", and "Adios Chacon".

Alice RussellTo Dust ... LP
Tru Thoughts/Differ-Ant (UK), 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 25.99
Dusty grooves from Alice Russell – a set that's steeped in heavy soul influences all the way through – from her great vocals on the top, to the tight instrumentation in the middle, to all the heavy drums that keep things kicking on the bottom! The album may well be Russell's tightest outing to day – and a set that's done in close collaboration with Alex Cowan – who really helps move Alice's music forward strongly with some new elements that never appeared in previous outings! There's some cool little twists and turns in the music – slight use of contemporary keys and electronics alongside the live funk elements – blended in nicely, without any sense of gimmick at all – and really helping bridge the space between the deep funk underground where Russell's worked strongly for years, and the bigger soul mainstream she could well dominate in the future. Titles include "Twin Peaks", "I Loved You", Citizens", "To Dust", "Hard & Strong", "For A While", "A To Z", and "Let Go". Features bonus track "Different" – plus "I Loved You (acoustic)", "I'm The Man That Will Find You", "Heartbreaker (Sefi Zisling remake)", and "I Loved You (Anoushka's wild hearts edit)".

TM JukeMaps From The Wilderness ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2003. Used ... $4.99
A stunner of a debut from TM Juke – one of the best new artists we've heard on the Tru Thoughts label! TM Juke manages to bring together both sides of the Tru Thoughts groove – the experimental beat-heavy approach, and the sweeter more soulful styles that have bubbled forth a lot on recent singles. At first glance, the album seems as if it's just going to be another abstract exercise in production – but getting into it, there's a surprising depth of expression and soulfulness that really push things past initial expectations! The record features some great guest vocals by Alice Russell, Rup, and Bread & Water – and titles include "Remember 99", "Playground Games", "Fast Asleep", "Knee Deep", "Get It Together", "Just For A Day", and "Wilderness Kids".

✨✧ Quantic Soul OrchestraStampede ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2003. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album – one that has the beat-heavy Quantic transform into the Quantic Soul Orchestra, for a stunning deep funk performance! The record sounds like nothing Quantic have done in the past – and shares a sound with work from the Soul Fire/Daptone underground, with a tight blend of hard drums, fast-riffing guitar, and all-solid 70s funky grooves. The one element that we would say the record shares with Quantic is a real talent for picking up neat instrumental twists – like the odd flute fill, string wash, or off-kilter drum sound – all of which make for a record that really opens up the genre of deep funk, and makes for one of the freshest releases we've heard of its type in a while! Includes a great deep funk cover of 4 Hero's "Hold It Down", plus the tracks "Terrapin", "Something That's Real", "South Coastin", "Stampede", "Raw Ingredients", "Babarabatiri", and "Take Your Time Change Your Mind".

DieslerRhythm Station ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2007. Used ... $1.99
The funkiest work so far from Diesler – making a step here from the Tru Thoughts label over to Freestyle – and definitely deepening their groove in the process! In a way, though, the set still shows plenty of Diesler's roots in the TT scene – as it's a great batch of cut-up funky rhythms, topped with lots of soulful vocals – very much in the spirit of some of Quantic's best work from a few years back! The change is definitely a great one for Diesler – who seem to have gotten a bit more focus than before, and really used the new direction in all the best ways possible – one of which is to accommodate a wide range of guest stars who include Laura Vane, Katie Miller, Miss Afrika, Paranormal, Kinny, and Double Yellow. Titles include "Welcome To Hellmouth", "Carla's Beat", "Restless", "Passion", "Lovetouch", "Crush", "Dopplegangland", and "The I In Team". CD

Natural SelfLet Peace Be The Ruler ... CD
Breakin Bread (UK), 2006. Used ... $4.99
A heady mix of beats, bass, and other chunky elements – all served up with a nice pastiche-driven approach to funk! Like other recent work on labels like Tru Thoughts or Melting Pot, Natural Self – aka Keno 1 – has a way of putting together a groove that's not really straight funk, not really instrumental hip hop, but somewhere in between! The rhythms here are all really organic – "natural", if you will – often showing some strongly acoustic roots, and at times coming across with elements of Afro Funk and other older genres, recast into new roles for these tunes. Alice Russell sings guest vocals on the track "I Don't Need This Trouble", but most of the rest of the album is instrumental – with titles that include "Song Bird", "To The Sun", "Black Orchid", "Foundation (part 1)", "The Sound", "The Calling", and "Fires Were Started".

Sonny FortuneWaves Of Dreams ... LP
A&M/Horizon, 1976. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99
A really wonderful album by Sonny Fortune – recorded for a major label, sure, but with the soulful depth of some of his earlier work for the indies! Sonny's on alto, flute, and soprano sax – and also plays a bit of percussion and some slight mini moog – not too much, as the session only has slight electric touches, but mixed with additional Fender Rhodes from Michael Cochrane, which gives the record a shimmering finish that helps take Fortune's reed solos up to the heavens! Other players include Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Buster Williams on bass, and Chip Lyle on drums – and tracks include "In Waves Of Dreams", "A Space In Time", "Thoughts", "Revelation", and "Seeing Beyond The Obvious".

Wendell Harrison TribeGet Up Off Your Knees (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tribe/Pure Pleasure (UK), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99 59.99
Fantastic new music from Detroit reedman Wendell Harrison – working here with a renewed version of the Tribe Records scene, at a level that makes the album one of his best in many years! Wendell blows tenor and bass clarinet, and his group here is mostly younger, lesser-known players – but who soar with Harrison in a mix of spiritual jazz modes and a few more rhythmic currents – all with the kind of powerful, progressive vibe that made the Tribe Records material of Harrison and his contemporaries so important in the 70s! Other musicians include Vincent Chandler on trombone, Steve Woods on flute, Luis Resto on piano, Walter White on trumpet, and Jacob Schwantz on guitar – although players shift often from track to track – and frequent Harrison partner Pamela Wise also provides a bit of keyboards, and the set features both sung vocals on two tracks from Pathe Jassi, and a recitation from Mbiyu Chui on another. Titles include "Revoltuion", "Siera", "Wandering Thoughts", "Samoulen Khale Yi", "What's Up", and "Saga Of A Carrot". LP, Vinyl record album

HiroshimaThird Generation/Another Place/Go ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 16.99
A trio of albums from Hiroshima – collected together in one 2CD set! First up is Third Generation – a real breakout album for Hiroshima – and a set that seems to show up in just about every collection of vintage fusion albums we look at! The set's the group's third, as you might guess from the title – and it's got the Hiroshima quintet sliding together in a perfect groove – soulful fusion that's maybe got a strong Cali vibe, but which occasionally has a few exotic touches on the instrumentation – all handled in a style that's kind of an 80s update of the Japanese soul fusion mode of the late 70s. Rhythms are electric at a few points, but their offset by some koto, shamisen, and nice use of flutes and saxes by leader Dan Kuramoto – on titles that include "Heavenly Angel", "We Are", "Ren", "From The Heart", "Sukoshi Bit", "Long Walks", and "Distant Thoughts". Another Place is a record that definitely has Hiroshima taking their origins seriously – as although the album's still got the same fusion vibe as before, it almost seems to step up even more Japanese elements too! The rhythms are maybe a bit more programmed than in the past, but the album also makes use of wood flutes, koto, taiko, shamisen, and other Japanese instrumentation – and features some occasional vocals from June Kuramoto too – all in a slinky fusion style with a slight eastern current. Titles include "One Wish", "Save Yourself For Me", "I Do Remember", "The Game", "Undercover", and "What's It To Ya". On Go, Hiroshima are maybe moving a bit far from the fusion of their roots – but the overall sound here is still sweetly electric, and served up in a nice mix of eastern and western styles! If anything, the group seem even more focused on melody – not in a commercial way, but using more stripped-down instrumentation at times to focus on the special sweetness created in the compositions of leader/reedman Dan Kuramoto – who also plays keyboards and even a bit of shakuhachi on the album. There's vocals on the set – sung lead and soulfully by Barbara Long – but the main focus is instrumental, and titles include "Go", "I've Been Here Before", "311", "Obon", "No 9", "Why Can't I Love You", and "Hawaiian Electric".

Madlib & OthersMadlib's Medicine Show Number 11 – Low Budget Hi Fi Music ... CD
Madlib Invazion, 2010. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Low Budget Hi Fi Music from Madlib – the eleventh entry in his epic Madlib's Medicine Show series – 28 tracks of hip hop unofficially dubbed the Dirty Demos! The set feature sample enriched instrumentals by Madlib as Loop Digga and collaborations with Strong Arm Steady, J Rocc, Madlib & Oh No as The Professionals, Guity Simpson, AG & Frank Nitt. It's great stuff, natch – finding Madlib in a straighter hip hop mode production wise – but straighter Madlib production has unexpected twists and turns! Loads of funky samples, some recognizable others otherworldly – and beats that range from dusty funk to dramatically soulful. Includes "The Sound Of Champions" (inst), "Charlie Hustle" by Strong Arm Steady, "Sam", "Snakes 101" by MED, "Girls" by J Rocc, "Love/Hate" (inst), "The Adventurs Of Soul Bra And Docta Dick'em Pts 1 & 2", "Hold Up" by The Professionals, "Thoughts Of An Old Flame" by Guilty Simpson and others.

Sun RaCymbals/Symbols Sessions – New York City 1973 (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99 25.99
A lost slice of work from Sun Ra's early 70s years on Impulse Records – one of the few new recordings created for his association with that label (most of the titles were reissues of earlier Saturn albums) – but one that was never issued at the time! Cymbals saw some release later, during the 90s – but this package really expands on that album by adding in a whole extra set of recordings from what appear to be the same sessions – and which really flesh out the vibe of the performance! The core group is a sextet – with Ra at the helm on some of his cool electric keyboards – including minimoog, rocksichord, and Gibson Kalamazoo – with acoustic work from Eloe Omoe on bass clarinet, Tal Ebah on trumpet, Ronny Boykins on bass, Harry Ar on drums, and Derek Morris on congas. Much of the core music explores a tension between Ra's cosmic keys and the more earthy sound of the acoustic instruments – but the added material here opens up some nicely different moods, and makes the whole thing explode with deep colors. Titles on Cymbals include "Land Of The Day Star", "Thoughts Under A Dark Blue Light", "The Mystery Of Two", and "The World Of The Invisible" – and added tracks include "Space Landing", "Of Drastic Measures", "Of Otherness", "The Universe Is Calling", and "Destination Of The Known Universe".

Nelson RiddleLolita ... LP
MGM, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A very groovy little soundtrack for this original film version of Lolita – directed by Stanley Kubrick with a screeplay by Nabokov himself. The album sports the famous "Lolita Theme", with a weird vocal part that goes "nya nya", and which became something of a minor instrumental hit at the time. About a third of the album is variations on that theme, and the rest of the album features darker tunes that get at the inherent sadness of the movie – standing in stark contrast next to the sillier theme numbers. Tracks include "Love Theme From Lolita", "Two Beat Society", "Thoughts Of Lolita", "School Dance", "Quilty's Theme", and "Lolita Ya Ya". LP, Vinyl record album

Sounds Of LiberationUntitled – Columbia University 1973 ... CD
Dogtown/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 15.00
A true treasure from this righteous Philly collective – a group who only issued one album in the 70s, and who finally double their catalog with the release of this rare performance from 1973! Sounds Of Liberation have this all-star lineup of musicians who did great work in Philadelphia and elsewhere – with Khan Jamal on vibes, Monette Sudler on guitar, and Omar Hill and Rashid Salim on percussion – working alongside some great work on flute and alto from Byard Lancaster, heavy bass from Billy Mills, and just the right touch of drums from Dwight James! The style here is maybe tighter, and occasionally more funky than on their one self-titled album – but the group also stretch out strongly too – hitting all the right spots in this forward-thinking blend of spiritual jazz modes, of the sort that would have made them a huge 70s ensemble, had they held on and found the right venue. Titles include the extended "New Horizon", plus "Badi", "Sweet Evil Mist", "Thoughts", and "Keno". CD

✨✧ XMore Fun In The New World (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last true masterpiece by the greatest rock band to ever come out of the late 70s and early 80s L.A. scene. More Fun In The New World serves in a lot of ways as X's upright middle finger to the early years of the Reagan era, with the anthemic opener "The New World", and the ballad "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts", perfectly encapsulating the fear and loathing brought about by the ridiculous politics that infected the entire decade. The album is very much a sequel to the amazing Under The Big Black Sun, full of razor pop anthems, Billy Zoom's punkabilly guitar acrobatics, and amazing depth thanks to John and Exene's sensitive and perceptive song writing. Awesome! Other tracks include "True Love", "We're Having Much More Fun", "Poor Girl", "Make The Music Go Bang", "Devil Doll", "Painting The Town Blue", "Hot House", "Drunk In My Past", "I See Red", and "True Love Part 2". 4 bonus tracks: demo/alternate mixes of "Poor Girl", "True Love Part 2", "Devil Doll", and "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts".

✨✧ LazarusLazarus/Fool's Paradise ... CD
Bearsville/Wounded Bird, 1971/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of records from this overlooked harmony group of the 70s! The self-titled Lazarus album has this warm glow right from the start – a mode that seems to draw on the same kind of relaxed energy that was showing up in the work of groups like America or Crosby Stills & Nash – a mode that wasn't trying nearly as hard to cop the harmony styles of the soul generation, and which instead had this easygoing vibe that was, at this point, still more personal than some of the too-produced AOR moments to come. Instrumentation is mostly just piano, bass, and guitar – which suits the vocals beautifully – and titles include "Warmth Of Your Eyes", "Refugee", "Whatever Happened", "Doncha Cry", "Memory Of A Stranger", and "Rivers". Fool's Paradise is a warmly glowing set from Lazarus – a group here who maybe have a bit more punch than on their debut, thanks to the addition of drums on a few cuts – but who still mostly take their cue from the laidback interplay of their vocals! The approach is nicely understated – not the polished pop of some of their contemporaries, but almost a singer/songwriter evolution of harmony work past the 60s – yet before the polish of AOR. The balance is great – maybe like a more understated America – and titles include "Poets & Lovers", "Thoughts Of You", "Take Me High", "Ladyfriends 1", and "When Will The Home Of Me Begin". CD

Kiwi funk and soul from Funkommunity – a modern collective that's anchored by the duo of producer Isaac Aesili and soulful singer Rachel Fraser – and they deliver a very promising debut here for Melting Pot! Funkommunity has a far more distinctly modern vibe than their more throwback-styled peers in the international funk scene – Rachel's vocals are purely soulful, but the overall sound features layers of synths and beats that range from boogie soul to spacey hip hop-styled. There's also quite a bit of live instrumentation in the mix – guitars, horns, bass and Rhodes in particular. Nice stuff! 12 tracks on the CD "Pass It On", "What You Give", "The Light", "Dandelion", "Sorceress", "Yeah", "Liquefaction", "Nortwest & 4th:, "Never Fading", "Make It That Way" and Start Again". CD

A crazy collection of singles from the pre-hippie years of the beatnik – that cool cat who loved jazz, read poetry, and dug the scene with plenty of attitude! That attitude is the main focus of most of the cuts here – obscure tracks from the late 50s and early 60s that poke fun at the heady thoughts and easy intellectualism of the beat scene – presented in a range of different styles that really run the gamut – from jazz, to rock, to many other genres in between – including a fair bit of offbeat spoken word and instrumental records too! The vibe here follows nicely in the other Lux & Ivy collections on the Righteous label – full of weird and wild records we never would have discovered otherwise – with cuts that include "Dog" by Bob Dorough, "Laffin Beatnik" by Johnny Beeman, "Reaching Into In" by Ken Nordine, "No Pictures Please" by Rod McKuen, "Manhattan Fable" by Babs Gonzales, "Pimples & Braces" by Spike Jones & The City Slickers, "Teenage Beatnik" by Louis Nye, "A Beatnik Story" by The Expressos, "Meet The Bongo Man" by Johnny O, and "William Butler Yeats On The Third Avenue El" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
