Aretha Franklin – Take a Look: Complete on Columbia (11CD+DVD)

null

Take a Look demonstrates how Aretha was born the “Queen of Soul,” paying loving care and attention to every facet of her years at Columbia.

The package includes CDs of Aretha’s seven full-length albums for Columbia; two CDs reflecting her collaborations with producers Bobby Scott (in 1963) and Clyde Otis (in 1964); and a bonus CD of singles produced by Bob Johnston and rarities that were “sweetened” and released after Aretha left the label. The set will also includes a DVD featuring Aretha, at the piano, performing several songs on The Steve Allen Show in 1964.

Among the highlights of Take a Look is a previously unreleased version of Yeah!!! In Person With Her Quartet which strips away the artificial club ambience that was added to the album’s studio performances, revealing Aretha at the peak of her powers. Another high point is an unreleased album called A Bit of Soul. Though it contains previously released material, the original album is presented here for the first time in its master form. Other revelations include riveting studio conversation between Aretha, John Hammond and pianist Ray Bryant during the making of Aretha’s debut album in the summer of 1960.

The set’s producer, Leo Sacks, says: “The stunning performances on Take a Look demonstrate how Aretha Franklin paved the path to her own greatness. Here is the young Aretha planting the seedlings that would blossom a short time later at Atlantic Records. From standards to show tunes to bebop to blues, Take a Look captures a gritty soul about to take flight.”

Joe Lovano – Bird Songs

null

“I didn’t approach this as a tribute record,” states Joe Lovano, dispelling right off the bat any preconception that his new album Bird Songs—an exploration of the Charlie Parker songbook—is a mere retread. Lovano’s 22nd album for Blue Note Records (the release of which will mark his 20th year on the label) breaks the mold of Bird tribute records. Bird Songs is a thrillingly adventurous, thoroughly modern, and uniquely personal look at one of the most influential figures in jazz history by one of the most important voices in the music today.

Personnel: Joe Lovano (saxophone); James Weidman (piano); Esperanza Spalding (bass); Otis Brown III, Francisco Mela (drums, percussion).

Indigo jam unit’s full length releases as of April 2011 includes six full length CD albums, starting with “DEMONSTRATION” in 2006, all selling more than 10,000 copies each in Japan.

indigo jam unit’s unique sound truly rests on the combination of the four members.

Marcus Miller – Tutu Revisited

null

When i wrote the music for “Tutu” in early 1986, I had no idea that I’d be “revisiting” it more than twenty years later. When we recorded it with Miles, it was music for that time. Apartheid was still in place in South Afirca, cats were wearing jackets with shoulder pads and the osund of the drum machine dominated music. I took a look at that particular landscape and created a sound taht i thought blended the feeling of that time witht the sound of Miles. Although i played most of the instruments on the album, it was important that Miles’ horn was the centeripee. I tried to find melodies taht were worthy of his glorious sound. On Tour we replace some of the the super electro-sounding elements from the album, but the ssence of Miles’ cool still prevails. People seem to be felling it twenty-five years later and the musicians (most of whom were kids when the original album was released) are definitely feeling it. We challenged ourselves to see where we could take this music to make it refelect the world today. In such turbulent times there is plenty to felect on and we had an amazing time working it out!  (Marcus Miller)

Personnel: Marcus MIller (bass, bass clarinet); Christian Scott (trumpet); Alex Han (saxophone); Federico Gonzales Pena (keyboards); Ronald Bruner JR (drums).

Meshell Ndegeocello – Weather

null

A seductive and once again completey excellent album from Meshell Ndegeocello – one of rare few great artists of our time to break out big early on and to go on to deeper, more alluring and creatively fruitful work later that’s beloved by a smaller, but much more appreciative flock! Weather, ironically, might be her most easily appealing and accessible album since her mainstream breakout – with a haunting, moody quality and deep sinking emotionalism. Producer Joe Henry is a good fit – the record has a quiet, kind of noirish quality that serves Meshell very well.

Colman Brothers – Colman Brothers

null

The Colmans’ eponymous debut LP is at once a tribute to the brothers’ heroes, such as Dizzy Gillespie (on the track “Mr. D.G.”) Freddie Hubbard and Francy Bolland, but isn’t all about the dance floor – tracks such as the eerily cinematic “The Chief”, the evocative “On A Better Day”, and the luscious “Some Other Wonder” (featuring Sara again) are far more restrained but equally inviting pieces. With huge support from Gilles Peterson on Radio 1, Peter Young on Jazz FM and many more following in their wake, we think you’ll agree that they really are something for us to blow our trumpet about!!

Brenk – Gumbo II

null

Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly) marks a new state of the art for sample-based productions. Taking his trademark formula to perfection, Brenk brings together 70′s soul with twisted electronica, analogue korg lines, Lil John ad-libs and police sirens, all backed by the most relentless grooves and drum-loops. While every track works for itself, „Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly)“ takes you on a heavy ride through music history: From the embracing brazilian sounds of „Perdido“ to the grimey talkbox craze of „Wolves 2 (Still Hungy)“ or the prog-rock stompin’ „Hit U“.

Ras G & The Alkebulan Space Program – Space Base Is The Place

null

Ras G & The Alkebulan (or Afrikan) Space Program are back on the planet with a brand new double 10″ LP fittingly titled “Spacebase Is The Place”. This album is a proper nod to his musical heroes Sun Ra, Lee Scratch Perry, Madlib, J Dilla as well as his Brainfeeder/Low End Theory musical comrades Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer and Samiyam but still maintaining that cosmic heavy blunt smoking dub-wise quality that is Ras G! Strongly limited edition.
