lucky brown - mystery road (2lp/cd/digital)
   

mystery road pays homage to the great unknown musicians throughout america who, with their self-produced singles, became local and regional hits just around the time that megacorporations began saturating the market and the radio with something that was less like music, and more like a product. they, with profit as their goal, turned the radio into a marketplace, and turned music lovers into consumers. In only a few generations, the violent severance of our ties to the traditions of our ancestors represents a loss of cultural heritage and has thrust us into uncharted waters - a mystery road.

lucky brown, in this follow up to his first tramp album: „lucky brown's space dream,“ is realizing another dream - [releasing an album in the form of a series of singles - each with it's own unique artwork, independent bands and writing and recording sessions.] {a 2 LP set} entitled mystery road.

various - the funky side of goldband/anla records (2lp gatefold/cd/digital)
   

goldband records played a key role in documenting and shaping of musical traditions, tastes, and trends, both regionally and internationally since 1944. the focus of the goldband catalog is certainly set on country & western, swamp pop, and cajun music. however, from the 1960s until the early 1970s Goldband, and it's sub-label anla records, released many high-quality soul and rhythm & blues recordings.

trlp-9038:
reverend cleatus & soul saviours - soul saviour stew (lp/digital)
   

it was gabe roth (daptone records) who coined the term ‘shitty is pretty’ to describe his modus operandi for writing & recording genuine modern funk music. no frills, no fancy production methods, straight ahead in the pocket playing and arrangements – and looking back 10 or more years from today - that was certainly the message fully understood and endorsed by UK band reverend cleatus & the soul saviours.

a ll the band wanted to try and achieve was get somewhere close to the vibe their old school heroes did - the meters, jimmy smith, brian auger, etc. here it is finally available on vinyl.

trlp/cd-9035:
don gardner - the story of (2lp gatefold/cd/digital)
   

while every rare groove dj/collector is familiar with the name don gardner, the average music buyer probably isn't. some of you may remember one particular song though: I need your lovin' from 1962. performed by don gardner & dee dee ford, it climbed up to #4 on the billboard charts and even made the pop top twenty. but that ain't all. qhat was about to follow might not have had enough penetration power to jump on the charts again, but every single song don gardner recorded in that decade had pure class.

a ll songs on this album appear on cd/digital for the very first time. the 8-page cd-booklet and deluxe double gatefold vinyl lp come with detailed liner notes and unseen photographs. plus, the first 400 copies of the vinyl edition contain the bonus 7” single cheatin' kind b/w what now my love.

trlp/cd-9034:
jaribu afrobeat arkestra - jaribu (2lp gatefold/cd/digital)
   

blazing horns in unison and a slightly awry choir come together, work in opposite directions, completing a true rhythmically woven carpet with the tight rhythm section's network: multi-layered, close-knitted and nearly impenetrable.

t
he eight japanese musicians led by masamichi ishikawa play more funk and jazz than the nigerian afrobeat originals fela kuti and tony allen did: a swift flute, a blazing trumpet playing and extensive solos from the very beginning. you've gotta love it!

lenis guess - the story of (2lp gatefold/cd/digital)

the kutimangoes - afro-fire (lp/cd/digital)
   

what would it sound like if fela kuti, charles mingus and ornette coleman formed a band in copenhagen? inspired by these artists, the kutimangoes play their very own mix of afrobeat, eclectic jazz, soul and blues.

well established names and new faces have come together to create some music that sounds like nothing else, with a focus on a strong groove and pure, unadultered energy. the 6-piece band counts drums, percussion, saxophones, trombones, keyboards, fender rhodes in a playful mix where the musicians change instruments from song to song.

various - movements 6 (2lp gatefold/cd/digital)
   

the movements saga started in 2005 by music maven tobias kirmayer. today, he proudly releases the 6th volume of this essential series. though the track listing still contains amazing music you may never hear elsewhere, the series has matured since its first volume. the track selection has become more open minded, compiling ballads and soul-jazz tunes, even proto-disco in addition to the rare funk tramp fans expect. Tracks are selected in chronological order so that the listener may get an impression of the development of the art form from jazz to rhythm and blues to rock & roll to soul and of course - funk.
