R&B, Jazz, Funk, Soul | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 92 min | 232 MB
Label: Ubiquity Records | Rel:2009

While Black Fuzz, recorded for Kanye West's Sony-distributed boutique label, remains unreleased, Sa-Ra return to Ubiquity, the independent that released the trio's first 12" single, for their first "proper" album. Although it is only a little more focused and unified than 2007's The Hollywood Recordings – none of which was recorded for the purpose of a standard album Nuclear Evolution: The Age of Love benefits from its sprawl, and that's because Sa-Ra don't really do tight, straightforward, and concise. They're polyglot space cadets, filtering their love for synth funk, ambient soul, and Afrocentric avant-garde jazz through left-field hip-hop, from contortions of low-booming G-funk to dazed drum loops as doped-out as anything on Stones Throw…

Acid Jazz, Funk, Soul | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 65 min | 160 MB
Label: Big Cheese Records | Rel:1995

If you like groovy funk/soul/jazz music, then look no further… This is as good as it gets. I'm not sure if this British wonder-group even exists anymore, but the music lives on… Songs like "Noo improved felcher" and "Cheese omelette" are favourites. Also the slower soul tunes like "I've got mine" and Barry White cover "I'm gonna love you" sound superb…

Genre: Jazz-Funk, Soul, Acid Jazz | Label: Polygram | Catalog Number: 586 085-2

Incognito are a 15 piece acid jazz ensemble formed in 1980 by Jean Paul 'Bluey' Maunick who has been at the core of the band ever since. Over the years he has been joined by a host of UK and US artists including Carleen Anderson, Tony Momrelle and Gavin Harrison. They released the first of their eleven studio albums Jazz Funk in 1981, although there would be a 10 year wait for the follow up. They have had success in the UK singles charts with the top 10 hit "Always There" (with Jocelyn Brown), and the top 30 hits "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing" and "Everyday". Their work has been popular with producers and has been remixed by Masters at Work, Roger Sanchez and David Morales.

Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Jazz Funk | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:04:45 | 151 MB
Label: Secret Records | Release Year: 2017

All the tracks here are excellent and interestingly with the exception of the title track you probably won't find any of the other tracks on a greatest hits compilation album of theirs and yet taken overall as a whole the album is very strong and has a very nice flow to it which is why despite the lack of "hits" I still feel this to be a very strong Shakatak album and is surely as good as "Night Birds" - both representing their best work in my opinion. Certainly no fillers here with "Stranger", "Sol Fuego", "Usual Situation" and "Steppin' Out" as the other stand-out tracks.

EAC Rip | FLAC (Tracks) +CUE, LOG | 432 MB | Covers Included
Genre: Acid Jazz / Funk / Soul | Label: Talkin' Loud | Catalog Number: 538 947-2

From the opening bars of "Wild and Peaceful" (almost a description of the group's style) with its soaring strings, crystalline piano, and flawless vocal harmonies, it's apparent that No Time Like the Future is rich with Incognito's patented blend of soul and finesse. "It Ain't Easy," with its refrain of Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin' On," is a classic funk outcry; "Fearless" is a wordless chant with some great rhythm guitar and booting jazz saxophone; "Nights Over Egypt" backs another great vocal with popping bass and orchestral atmospherics; "Black Rain" mixes exotic drumming with some subliminal dissonance. Producer-composer-guitarist Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick has added string arrangements by Simon Hale, appearances by the horns of the hot Cuban band Irakere, and the performances of small army of R&B singers (Maysa, especially) and British contemporary jazz players (Ed Jones stands out on tenor and soprano). The result is an irresistible combination of strong songs and pulsing rhythm tracks, all polished to slippery perfection.

One of Roy Ayers' best-remembered albums of the 70s – a sublime blend of mellow numbers and some of his more club-oriented grooves of the time – all wrapped together with a genius that we can only describe as Ayers-like! The album's a beautiful example of the balance that Roy was striking in his work at the time – because alongside some of the more upbeat, catchy numbers, there's other tracks that are a fair bit more laidback, and almost abstract at times – a wonderful extrapolation of that sensitive Ayers blend of jazz and soul, with key emphasis on the vibes and keyboards. Titles include the massive groover "Running Away" – which you'll recognize from a key sample history over the years – and club cuts "Cincinnati Growl", "Fruit", "Sanctified Feeling", and "Stranded In The Jungle" – plus the more laidback cuts "Gotta Find A Lover", "I Still Love You", "Lifeline", and "This Side Of Sunshine". The CD comes with extra bonus with the 12" version of "Running Away".
