Review: Heat Rock Records' latest double-dose of cut and paste madness is as incendiary as you'd expect, with both tracks adding elements of classic dancefloor workouts to fat beats and plenty of added percussion. Chicago's Altered Tapes handles side A, thrillingly re-imagining Dee-Lite classic 'Groove is In The Heart' by utilising more percussive elements including a killer, cowbell-driven drum-break from some of the tunes that the New York band originally sampled on their chart-topping house classic.
B-Boys and B-Girls the world over will love it! On the flip, Bay Area native King Most combines the vocals from a Salsoul disco classic to a backing track that cleverly combines elements from a Ramsay Lewis style jazz number and a JB's-esuqe funk bomb.
Played by: The AllergiesMarc Hype. Monolense reissue gram vinyl 12". Review: It's over 25 years since Baby Ford decamped to the studio with, alternately, Mark Broom and the late Ian 'Eon' Loveday to re-examine the depths and possibilities of collaborative underground techno. The result, as we now know, was a giant step forward into a new sound, with a new label, Ifach, that would go on to define the blueprint for a more minimal sound it would take others a decade emulate.
Monolense, four bittersweet, emotional, stripped bare explorations of techno has long been sought-after, commanding high prices on the secondhand market, and is finally getting a re-release.
This is not just a moment in time, but a bookmark in UK techno history. Electro Planet gram vinyl 12". The small mediterranean island has an unlikely affinity with electro music and a strong scene that included the highly respected young producer Microlith, who sadly died aged only 24 years old.
The scene continued on in his name with Sound Synthesis at the forefront with an array of heavy weight releases on labels such as Electro Records, Furthur Electronix, Infiltrate, and Specimen.
The record imagines an 'Electro Planet', with a the title track engulfing the listener into an alien world run by Kraftwerk autonotons, commanding synthesisers and vocoders live in harmony within it's rich sonic landscape. On the flip, 'Electronic Machines' hits firmly at the peak time dancefloor and we can't wait to hear it back on the big systems where it belongs loaded with dense palpitating bass lines, protruding from the midst of slick s and soaring string embellishments, and a dash of vocoder fragmentation.
The EP is nicely completed with 'Energy Patterns', the understated bomb of the record and a juggernaut of pure menace, hitting with a bass line that will decimate clubs like fabric, Fold and Panorama Bar on their return - think churning acid lines, shrieking synth FXs, and a huge electro groove - not for the faint hearted but that suits us just fine.

Review: Carl Finlow has been a prominent name in UK electro since the mids, releasing music at an astonishing rate under a variety of monikers.
We felt the release was to important to be overlooked without a much deserved run of vinyl, so have pressed a limited run of records featuring futuristic electro highlights and the best unreleased cuts.
On the flip side 'Axiom' takes us deeper into the void with dark basslines, complex drums and unapologetically disorientating frequencies. A track that makes us question if Finlow has transcend to a future state where he is more machine than man, sending psychoactive messages in the form of killer electro cuts.

Disco Reggae Vol 4 LP. Stix France. Review: There's nothing particularly revolutionary about the idea behind the Disco Reggae compilation series - contemporary artists deliver reggae-soaked covers of boogie and disco classics - but the sets themselves never fail to impress.
The latest volume, the fourth in total, once again contains some genuinely brilliant covers. In between, you'll find highlights including a reggae-boogie revision of Chemise's 'She Can't Love You' again by Taggy Matchera wonderfully soulful re-interpretation of Errol Walker classic 'In These Times' here re-titled 'Summertime' by Wolfgang, and a killer collaboration between Blundetto and Booker Gee.
Played by: Charles Maurice. They had created an album that was an alternative to what Gene Russell and Dick Schory referred to as old school jazz.

These genres were combined by Doug Carn and Jean Carn who unleashed her five octave vocal on Spirit Of The New Land which at the time was their finest hour and set the bar high for future albums.
Posted by Jillem on Saturday, October 02, This latest 45 is another stunner with plenty of raw screams, wails and grunts all adding extra life and vitality to the already trilling guitars and bustling drum rhythms. Add in heavy percussion and you have a real heavy Afro psych-funk tune. The flip is more deep and soulful, and just as good for different reasons. The group is Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou Dahomey, and we get to listen to two different tracks that hit hard in their own way.
Heavy drums and a carefully picked guitar are paired with screams and straight up jams throughout. The original, released in was described as soul. While tehre might have been some elements of soul thrown in, this one in fact hits that funky psych rhythms that we all can get ourselves into.
No corners were cut, these tracks come to you in the best shape they can and continue to be a hot seven from start to finish. Originally released in Righteous spiritual jazz done with such a sophisticated execution that this album separates itself from anything else of its kind. A moving, beautiful listen that sounds ever more contemporary.
Further, his complex harmonic charts made his sextet sound like an orchestra, establishing him as an arranger. This set also marked the recording debuts of drummer Michael Carvin and bassist Henry Franklin who would issue The Skipper for Black Jazz the following year.
The album opens with a brief read of John Coltrane's "Welcome" as brass, reeds, winds, modal and Rhodes piano, bass, and drums all enter on a crescendo before Jean wordlessly soars above them.
Hutcherson's "Little B's Poem" commences as a swinging, soul-jazz groover, led by Carn's whimsical Hammond organ and swinging hard bop drums. Jean nearly scats the lyric before the horns surround her in a waterfall of cadences, underscoring her souled-out delivery.
Shorter's title cut is a long spectral ballad. Electric piano and cymbals whisper in the vamp before Jean deliberately and artfully articulates the melody through Carn's life-affirming lyrics; the band hovers and floats like a jazz chamber group behind her, providing her freedom to improvise.
Carn's "Moon Child" offers humor as the piano playfully apes Traffic's vamp to "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" in the intro before the horns enter in procession. Franklin walks them along the gradually unfolding modal groove while Carvin fills and rolls around them all. Harper's tenor break channels Coltrane, Shorter, and Sonny Rollins.
Franklin's furious bassline, Harper's roiling sax, and Carvin's skittering, break-laden kit work push Carn toward modal exploration with expansive chord voicings punctuated by speedy single-note runs. Carn never sacrifices the swinging, songlike structure while underscording the complexity in Tyner's harmonic inquiry. The "Acknowledgement" section of Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" is rendered with elegance and spiritual soul in Jean's delivery.
The familiar bass and piano theme buoys her. The horns gather force and cascade under and around her as Carn lays down fat, open-ended chords for the rhythm section to play off. His lyrics are full of optimism and spirituality. Horace Silver's "Peace" closes.
Carn's chart showcases an elegant interplay between bass and Rhodes piano as Jean expresses the lyric with nuanced resolve and resonance while the trombone emerges as a second voice. All of Carn's Black Jazz titles are influential, but Infant Eyes arrived at a special cultural juncture. It balanced accessibility with adventure and established both the label and the Carns as co-creators of a brand new, specifically Afro-centric approach to creative jazz.
He found a home at the Black Jazz label, where African-Americans called the shots and, of course, racial tension was nonexistent. Who was this year-old whose first album, Infant Eyes, sold very well away from the machinations of the music industry?
Following his muse to Los Angeles, he worked in an organ trio and studied with organ and piano player Larry Young, who had co-founded the seminal jazz-rock band Tony Williams' Lifetime and recorded an excellent mids hard-bop record titled Unity, among other things.
Carn assumes several roles well: organ and piano player, arranger and lyricist. His wife at the time, Jean, is just as impressive singing. First track 'Welcome' -- a Coltrane piece found on the early s collection The Gentle Sound of John Coltrane -- has Jean's operatic voice and a swirl of instruments conjuring a state of awe in just over a minute. Next, Jean displays a world of conviction singing the joyous lyrics about a newborn that Doug penned for vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson's 'Little B's Poem' originally an instrumental on Hutcherson's Components album.
Jean opens still another vista of wonder singing the new lyrics of the melodic Wayne Shorter ballad 'Infant Eyes. It was the first of twenty albums by a label that was very different from other new indie jazz labels that were being founded across the America.
This included albums that featured political and spiritually influenced music. Between and the label released twenty albums that included everything from spiritual jazz and soul-jazz to free jazz and funk. Eclectic described the music that the label released. That described the albums that Black Jazz Records released during That was still to come. Doug Carn who was just twenty-three when he signed to Black Jazz Records.
Not long after this, he began work on his debut album Infant Eyes. Doug Carn put together a band and spent the best part of a year practising and then when he signed to Black Jazz Records recorded the album. The rhythm section featured drummer Michael Carvin, bassist Henry Franklin and bandleader Doug Carn who switched between electric piano, organ and piano. Meanwhile his wife Jean added her unmistakable vocals. George Harper played tenor saxophone and flute and was joined in he front line by trombonist Al Hall Jr and Bob Frazier who played trumpet and flugelhorn.
This talented and versatile band worked their way through the seven tracks which became Infant Eyes. The session was engineered and produced by Original - Leftfield - A Final Hit (Greatest Hits) (CD) owner Gene Russell and the album was scheduled for later in When Infant Eyes was released inDoug Carn Original - Leftfield - A Final Hit (Greatest Hits) (CD) regarded the album as a demo.
Despite that, it was well received by critics and hailed as a groundbreaking album. It was a similar case with the other two albums Doug Carn released for the label.
That was no surprise given the quality of the three albums he released. The first was Infant Eyes. Initially the arrangement is intense and almost frenetic before the band lock into a groove. By then, the scat disappears as unleashes an impassioned vocal. On Moon Child Doug Carn switches to piano, and his playing is moody and melancholy.
Meanwhile, the horns add an atmospheric backdrop during this eight minute epic which is an emotional roller coaster. Horns are to the fore as the organ sweeps and swirls and join with the cymbals in playing a crucial role in the sound and success of the track. However, six years later Doug Carn added lyrics and his wife Jean takes charge of the vocal. Doug Carn added new lyrics full of social comment which are delivered by Jean.
She plays a leading role in the success of breathtaking, powerful and poignant take on a familiar track from the late, great jazz pianist. Despite that, it was the most successful album that Black Jazz Records released that year. Infant Eyes was very different to old school jazz and was new type of jazz album. It featured everything from avant-garde and even elements of free jazz, funk, fusion, soul, soul-jazz and spiritual jazz.
These genres were combined by Doug Carn and Jean Carn who unleashed her five octave vocal on Infant Eyes which introduced the pair to the record buying public across America.
This was just the first chapter in the Doug and Jean Carn story. Infant Eyes was the first of four critically acclaimed albums that Doug Carn released between and These albums are now regarded as cult classics, and amongst the best that Black Jazz Records released during the five years it was in business.
And nothing elsewhere in the infinite universe like them either. Peter will ask, you know: "Have you dug 'Faces in the Jazzmatazz'? And which person are you in "Flibbity-Jib'? But the thing he is probably best Original - Leftfield - A Final Hit (Greatest Hits) (CD) for is a series of albums released in the late Fifties on Dot Records called Word Jazz. The four albums, recorded between andhave been anthologized several times over the course of their history including a vinyl collection on Blue Thumb and a CD on Rhinobut they have never before been made available on CD in their entirety.
In all, 27 tracks make their CD debut. Needless to say, Ken has also written some notes, and has provided some rare photos for the set. The Charlie Parker Dial MastersThe Judy Garland Decca MastersThe Machito Columbia Masters —the titles assume a certain form: the imperious definite article, the name of the artist, the recording company, and, at the end, that masterful word, masters.
But he did not define his era, and it did not define him. He is a performing artist of indeterminate medium, all but unknown to the general public and not well-known among musicians either.
Most of his career has been in television and radio, where he lent his dark, agile bassvoice to numberless commercials. His album Colors was originally a series of radio spots for the Fuller Paint Company. The accompaniment is not always jazz, nor is it exactly accompaniment. The absence of any clear boundary between music and sound, or sound and voice, might spark the thought that word jazz has more to do with Cagean compositionin sound than any bongos-and-angst record.
But Nordine raises this possibility with the lightest touch, for he can be very funny, and this is maybe why his albums have aged so well. The twenty-page insert booklet includes appreciationsby Laurie Anderson and Tom Waits, reminiscences by Nordine and Cunningham, all the original cover art and liner notes, and a new poem by Nordine.
The only shortcoming of this album is its stingy run of five thousand copies, which are intermittently hard to find. So if you see a copy, snap it up while you can.

He is now highly recognized as one of the foremost exponents of a sophisticated style of largely instrumental music that combines elements of lounge music and jazz with Latin flavors.
They're of such a similar qualitative standard that none can be singled out as definitive, or even recommended above the others.
