    GOLDFINGER DOE & B.M.S.

    Let's Dance Together

    [engl] William Onyeabor wasn?t the only Nigerian experimenting with synthesizers in the 70s and 80s. Goldfinger Doe was twiddling knobs too, no more so than on Let?s Dance Together ? a prime slab of cosmic Afro boogie funk, recorded with legendary percussionist, Mike Umoh (a.k.a B.M.S.) Goldfinger met Umoh playing with Bongos Ikwue & The Groovies. Bass player Bashiru Musa, was a fellow Groovie too, and when the three hit the studio to record Let?s Dance Together, the groove was already tight and hot. The title track, ?Let?s Dance Together?, is an urgent boogie monster, peppered with cosmic synths. ?Funky Africa? is an irresistible floor-filler, driven by the ?funk in the black soil and the soul in the air.? ?Jah Help Us? is a reggae-tinged reworking of the Lord?s Prayer, with added squelchy synth. ?B.M.S. Bowl?? It?s just an excuse for Umoh to show off his preposterous percussive skills. Goldfinger?s extraordinary synth skills are always front and centre. They transform ?Jane?, providing a humorous commentary in an otherwise straightforward romantic lament, and propel the funkier tracks to become the heartbeat of the album. Let?s Dance Together is an Afro Funk space ship, fuelled up and ready to take off. - Peter Moore, www.africanrevolutions.com

    GUNESH

    Gunesh

    [engl] The Gunesh Ensemble was founded in 1970 in Ashkhabad, Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic, then part of the Soviet Union. They started out as a vocal group with supporting musicians from Turkmenistan State Radio and TV. Later several young musicians came to play with them and the band's music became much more modern. The group began to play jazz-rock tightly intertwined with traditional Oriental music. With that new musical style the band participated in some popular festivals around the Soviet Union. They received various awards and became very popular. Gunesh has always been in the process of developing and was one of the first and best local jazz-groups to organically combine the principles of jazz and melodic improvisation. The remarkably beautiful arrangements and polyrhythmic compositions were always further developed thematically. This process was highly praised at the Moscow competition With A Song On Life in 1977 where the ensemble became a prize-winner. The Organizing Committee of the Festival Spring Rhythms in Tbilisi (1980) called out members Rishad Shafi as best drummer and Stanislav Morozov as best saxophonist. This, their very fine first LP was originally released in 1980 on the Soviet state label Melodyja and contains traditional Central Asian music in jazz-rock arrangements plus a Vietnamese singer. The line-up has changed many times. Around 65 musicians have been a member of the group at some point in time.

    HANK MOBLEY SEXTET

    Hank Mobley With Donald Byrd And Lee Morgan

    [engl] PLUS TWO BONUS TRACKS! This is an ancient Blue Note rarity recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's legendary studio in 1956 with legendary bass man Paul Chambers doing the deep notes. First press originals in adequate condition go for about 500 Euros. So what does this sextet featuring trumpeters Donald Byrd and Lee Morgan with tenor saxophone hero Hank Mobley as bandleader and piano madcap Horace Silver backing the rhythm section with his extraordinary chord progressions have to offer? The album is widely labeled as hard bop and it shows a great development from the mid to late 1940s bebop scene where John Coltrane, Charlie Parker and other now mystical protagonists brought the swinging dance music of the even older big bands to a new level of sophistication and still maintained an earthy and highly spirited atmosphere. Same goes for the hard bop and post bop scene of the later half of the 1950s from which finally modal jazz and free jazz emerged within the wink of an eye. All four lengthy compositions on this album are still one step behind the next level and show a playfully jamming band executing comprehensible harmony lines backed by tricky yet enthralling grooves that in the end move straight forward despite the rhythm section playing mostly around the pulse. The duels of both trumpets and the tenor sax heat up one?s soul as they are aligned with the racy rhythm patterns. The melodies themselves are quite cheerful and cool. When Paul Chambers takes the bow in one passage of the fourth tune Mobleymania and scratches some cool lines backed up with an everflowing drum pulse nobody may sit still. All six musicians here are fairly well connected with each other in terms of playing tightly to what the next improvises. Especially Mobley burns with every note he plays and if you bushwhack through to the core that carries the steaming dialogues between trumpets and saxophone you will find some maniacs building rhythmical patterns par excellence. This album certainly demands many spins before you will be aware of every beautiful detail. Indeed a classic of 1950s jazz aside from the greasy mainstream sound. Let's go wild with Hank Mobley, Donald Byrd and Lee Morgan.

    HAROLD MCNAIR WITH ORNETTE COLEMAN'S SIDEMEN

    Affectionate Fink

    [engl] An incredible record from reedman Harold McNair ? one of the key Jamaican jazz players who hit the London scene in the same post-colonial wave as Joe Harriott and Shake Keane ? and maybe our favorite of the bunch! Harold's a hell of a talent on both tenor and flute ? and although he might be best known for his background work on late 60s Donovan albums, he really soars here as a soloist ? working with Ornette Coleman group members David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums ? both of whom swing wonderfully in McNair's company! The album bills Izenzon and Moffett strongly on the cover ? as if they're one of the main attractions ? but what's most compelling is the way that McNair and pianist Alan Branscombe bring the American musicians into their own sort of groove ? a modal, soulful style that's completely sublime ? and which makes the album a killer all the way through. Titles include the original ''Affectionate Fink'' ? plus great takes on ''I Love You'', ''O Barquinho'', ''You Stepped Out Of A Dream'', and ''Here's That Rainy Day'' ? all soulful swingers.

    JOE MOKS

    Boys And Girls

    [engl] Calling all students of late 70s Nigerian Boogie. Class is in and you?re about to get schooled by music professor Josephine Mokwunyei, aka Joe Moks. Spotted by legendary producer, Odion Iruoje, and nurtured by his protege, Alex Tony Okoroji, Joe Moks pioneered a wonky, hi-tech style of funk that would become the sound of 80s Nigeria. Her album Boys And Girls is brash, bouncy and fun, decorated by scatty synth lines and propelled by the ?magic hand claps? of Nigerian rhythm legends Steve Black, Goddy Igidigi and Ifi Okwechime. The title track and ?You Look Without Seeing? are spaced-out party starters. ?Closer Than Skin? boasts a super slinky bass line and ?Love Is Gonna Pay? is a slice of Bony M Euro pop. And, just beneath the froth, strong intelligent lyrics demanding respect and equality. ?Being In Love Is Being Involved? was the blueprint of new kind of relationship Nigerian women were looking for. Joe Moks only made one album. She made a few appearances on Victor Uwaifo?s TV show before becoming a professor of Music and Theatre Arts at the University of Benin. But forty years on, Boys And Girls remains a lesson in fun and intelligent Nigerian boogie. - Peter Moore, www.africanrevolutions.com

    JOHNSON, ROBERT

    The First 12 Sides

    Obwohl der legendäre Blues-Musiker Robert Johnson bekanntlich nur zweimal in seinem kurzen Leben, 1936 und 1937, aufgenommen hat, war sein Schaffen in diesen beiden kurzen Tagen vor langer Zeit sowohl unglaublich einflussreich als auch überraschend produktiv. Jenseits der klassischen Cuts, die damals mit 78 U/min veröffentlicht wurden, gab es zahlreiche unveröffentlichte Outtakes und alternative Aufnahmen, die Jahrzehnte nach den Aufnahmen aufgedeckt wurden. Auf dieser Zusammenstellung finden sich 12 alternative Takes, darunter Essentials wie "Crossroad Blues", Drunken Hearted Man", "Ramblin' On My Mind" und mehr.

    KAKRABA, S.K.

    Songs Of Paapieye

    SK KAKRABA ist der Meister der Gyil, des ghanaischen Xylophons aus 14 Holzstäben, die quer über Klangverstärker aus Kalebassen gespannt werden. Das summende Klappern aus jeder Note stammt von den Seidenwänden von Eibeuteln von Spinnen, die über die Löcher in den Kalebassen gespannt werden - ,Paapieye" in der Sprache der Lobi. Der organische Sound der Gyil kann in den nordwestlichen und nördlichen Regionen Ghanas erlauscht werden, aber auch an der Elfenbeinküste, in Burkina Faso und darüber hinaus, wo das Instrument auf andere Namen hört. Die charakteristisch-summende Klangfarbe klingt für uneingeweihte Ohren vielleicht seltsam, doch genau diese Verzerrung ist es, die die Gyil-Musik von SK KAKRABA so wunderschön macht - und die er als Kind von den Dorfältesten in seiner Lobi Gemeinde im äußersten Nordosten von Ghana gelernt hat. Obwohl die Gyil of zusammen mit Trommel und Glocke gespielt wird, lebt SK dieser Tage in Los Angeles und spielt allein. ,Songs Of Paapieye" zeigt einen Schnappschuss des traditionellen Lobi Repertoires interpretiert von einer einzelnen Gyil. Das Album widmet sich SKs liebsten Songzyklen, Trauermärschen, improvisierten Interpretationen traditioneller Songs und Originalstücken - und Kombinationen aus allem.

    LAVETTE, BETTYE

    Nearer To You

    Der Auftritt von BETTYE LAVETTE beim Einführungskonzert von Barack Obama im Januar 2009, bei dem sie "A Change Is Gonna Come" zum Besten gab, machte sie bei einem Millionenpublikum bekannt, das zuvor nichts von ihr oder ihrem immensen Talent wusste. Sie tritt nun regelmäßig im amerikanischen Fernsehen auf mit Auftritten bei Jay Leno, Letterman und den meisten anderen relevanten Late Night Shows in den USA. Sie ist eine wahre amerikanische Musiklegende, obwohl die Anerkennung der Kritiker, die Awards und Lobesreden, die in den letzten Jahren über sie hereinbrachen, längst überfällig waren. Obwohl LAVETTE seit den Sechziger Jahren für die verschiedensten Labels aufnahm, gilt das Material, das sie in den späten Sechziger und frühen Siebziger Jahren bei Silverfox und SSS International aufnahm bei den Fans als ihr bestes. ,Nearer To You" ist eine Sammlung der gesamten Aufnahmen von LAVETTE bei diesen Labels und beinhaltet unter andere zwei brillante Duette mit Hank Ballard. Zum ersten Mal seit zwei Jahrzehnten in dieser Form erhältlich!

    LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS

    It Rains Love

    Die Geschichte von Lee Fields ist nahezu einzigartig: 1969 nimmt er seine erste Platte auf, er veröffentlicht Alben auf dreizehn verschiedenen Labels und verbringt fast ein halbes Jahrhundert mit seiner Liebe zur Musik, mit Tourneen und sehr viel Zeit im Studio. Das Erfolgsrezept seines neuen Albums ,Special Night" besteht aus zwei Zutaten: Fields bleibt seinem rau-zärtlichen Soul, den er schon immer gemacht hat, treu. Er richtet aber auch den Blick auf die Gegenwart, um neue Möglichkeiten auszuloten. Das Ergebnis ist ein unverwechselbarer Sound, der, wie Pitchfork bemerkt, ,nicht speziell Atlantic oder Stax oder Philadelphia International oder Chess oder Fame oder Motown verpflichtet ist, sondern eher allen auf einmal". Es gibt Anspielungen, Sounds und Gefühle, die man vielleicht kennt, aber es gibt auch völlig neue Texturen, Themen und Zugänge, die bisher keinen Platz in diesem Genre hatten und dem Sound eine spezielle Qualität geben: die von Lee Fields eben.

    LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS

    Special Night

    [engl] Special Night is a masterclass in soul music past and present. Produced by Leon Michels and Thomas Brenneck, and brilliantly performed by the Expressions, Special Night was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely to tape in three weeks at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios in Queens, NY. A sense of urgency, equal parts fun and inspiration, and a decent amount of beer and Jack Daniels were the driving forces during the sessions that produced Lee Fields & The Expressions latest offering. Special Night is also the first record in the Expressions catalogue in which every song was written jointly by Lee Fields and The Expressions. Whether tackling a tune about love lost, found, or broader topics like the state of humanity, Lee has a very unique and honest perspective tat is on display with each unforgettable performance. Also, The Expressions have never been sharper, they, along with Lee, have created a collection of music on Special Night which holds court with pretty much any soul music that came before it.

    LES BAXTER & HIS ORCHESTRA

    Les Baxter's Jungle Jazz

    [engl] PLUS 4 BONUS TRACKS! Les Baxter (1922-1996) used to be an utterly talented composer and bandleader who was on the go to the max during his active years. His version and as I should say vision of jazz music was a contemporary fresh and colorful sound with an exotic vibe due to the use of many elements of latin music within a modernized big band sound. We speak of the exotica and space age era when jazz music became more than just a few musicians on stage in a back street pub sweating their life out while improvising. He draws inspiration from the various swing orchestras of the late 1920s and combines this lush big band approach with a hot south american groove that shows an affinity for Cuban club music, for mambo and salsa. With rhythmical effects and a few wordless female vocal passages added he builds this haunting jungle atmosphere on top while leaving out the too obvious animal voices. The latin jazz and swing elements harmonize fairly well with each other and the melodies Les Baxter and his orchestra create drag you into a different world. You can dance to this or just close your eyes and float upon this gentle river of sound. The tunes are all built and arranged like a movie score which is no wonder as Les Baxter has been a soundtrack composer ever since. What makes this record so special are the pictures that come to ones mind with the always changing soundscapes it features. It is by far not only an evergreen jungle forest with big cats, apes and savage men hunting for white goddesses but also an urban jungle with grey skyscrapers growing beside the dirty streets, a bridge between the exotic dreams of each young American in the 1950s and the often gloomy reality in the big cities. But it is always a joyful experience. The album gets performed by an orchestra of extraordinary talent with an exceptionally tight interplay and still sounds fresh and powerful after nearly 60 years. A reissue is welcome to drag it back into the light of attention as many younger jazz fanatics might have overlooked this gem due to whatever circumstances. This new edition makes sure ?Jungle jazz? survives and infects a whole new generation of swing kids.

    LLOYD MCNEILL

    Elegia

    [engl] Soul Jazz Records are releasing flautist Lloyd McNeill's album 'Elegia' (1980). Originally released on the artists' own private press Baobab label in New York, the album is a serious collectors' piece, a heavyweight and fascinating fusion of deep spiritual jazz with Brazilian rhythms and melodies. The album has been out of print for nearly 40 years. This groundbreaking album is the culmination of Lloyd McNeill's many years involved with Brazilian musicians and features the great percussionist Nana Vasconcelos alongside fellow Brazilians Portinho and Dom Salvador, and US jazz musicians including bassist Cecil McBee. In a 50-year musical career, McNeill has worked with many artists including Nina Simone, Eric Dolphy, Mulatu Asatke and Sabu Martinez. This is the fifth Lloyd McNeill album that Soul Jazz Records have released and follows on from the recent release of 'Treasures' (1976) and the earlier albums 'Asha' (1969), 'Tanner Suite' (1969) and 'Washington Suite' (1970), all of which are being re-pressed to coincide with this new release.
