Franco Micalizzi – Violence

null

Very solid Italian soundtrack for a police movie. Excellent funky theme that is reprised throughout the record, a bit like his British ‘cousin’, “The Hanged Man”. Dark slow or medium grooves with very efficient breaks on “Caccia al cinese”, “Dark Suspense” and “Affano”.

Arthur Verocai – Arthur Verocai

null

Sweet and jazzy pop from early 70s Brazil — a great little album that we’d rank with our favorites by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo! Arthur Verocai isn’t nearly as well-known as those two, but he works in a similar territory — taking jazz, large arrangements, and nice touches of electric funk — and working them into a groove that has the soaring and ambitious feel of the best post-Tropicalia work of 70s Brazil! This rare gem was self-produced, and fell of the map almost as soon as it was released — but it really deserves wider recognition, and shines with a depth that makes it an instant classic to our ears! Titles include “Presente Grego”, “Caboclo”, “Pelas Sombras”, “O Mapa”, “Sylvia”, “Karina”, “Velho Parente”, and “Dedicada A Ela”.

Azymuth – Light As A Feather

null

Azymuth features Jose Roberto Bertrami on keyboards and percussion, Alex Malheiros on bass, Ivan Conte on drums and synthesizers, and Aleuda on additional percussion. The group was formed in 1969 in Rio de Janeiro. Due to the overwhelming prominence of Brazilian pop, Azymuth barely survived during their first decade because of their insistence on playing jazz and samba influenced instrumentals. The band’s break came in 1978 when Bertrami was invited to pen some tunes for an album by percussion virtuoso, Airto Moreira. A tour with Flora Purim added to the group’s notoriety, and a few months later the musicians signed a recording contract. Several well-received albums followed, including Outubro.

Against all odds, keyboardist Jose Roberto Bertrami and his Brazilian jazz-rock band, Azymuth, made quite a name for themselves in the early 1980s, playing an infectious music that blended the subtle melodies of bossa nova with hot samba rhythms and a dash of rock and roll. Light As A Feather, the group’s first release, is filled with fiery Brazilian sounds and the kind of beats that make you want to get up and dance. This fusion classic is available through a special CD only release on the Black Sun label, thanks to their producer, Joel Leibovitz.

Light As A Feather is a superb introduction to the many talents of the Brazilian band which accompanied Flora Purim on her critically acclaimed 1978 American tour. It was Purim’s assertion that Azymuth was the best group in Brazil today that gained United States exposure for the group in their own right. A textural delight, Light As A Feather features a seemingly endless variety of exotic percussion devices tastefully blended together with the uniquely spiced outpourings of Bertrami’s synthesizers. The Flora Purim/Stanley Clarke title track is an ethereal standout, while the Azymuth original Jazz Carnival offers an extended jaunt through electrifying solos and heated percussion licks against a throbbing dance beat. In fact, it was this cut which propelled Light As A Feather to the top 10 in jazz charts worldwide.

Dexter Wansel – Life on Mars

null

Keyboardist/arranger/producer/recording artist Dexter Wansel can be heard throughout the catalog of Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff’s Philadelphia International Records. In 1975, Wansel met Gamble & Huff when he was a member of a band called Yellow Sunshine, which also boasted guitarist Roland Chambers who would later become a part of MFSB, the house band for Gamble & Huff’s Philadelphia International Records. Becoming a part of the staff creative collective, Wansel began arranging, playing keyboards, and writing songs for the label’s acts including the O’Jays, Teddy Pendergrass, and the Intruders, among others. His skills can be heard on non-PIR sides like Jermaine Jackson’s “Where Are You Now” from his gold LP Let’s Get Serious and “Tonight” from Junior’s Acquired Taste LP. His frequent songwriting partners were Cynthia Biggs, Bunny Sigler, and T. Life. A synth pioneer, Wansel’s first LP arranging assignment was several tracks on Carl Carlton’s 1975 LP, I Wanna Be With You, produced by Bunny Sigler. A Biggs/Wansel song, “The Sweetest Pain,” a duet between Wansel and Jean Carn, originally a 1979 single from Wansel’s Time Is Slipping Away LP, was a popular radio-aired LP from Loose Ends’ Zagora LP. Wansel’s own charting LPs were Life on Mars from summer 1976 (includes two tracks with Instant Funk, “Life on Mars” and You Can Be What You Wanna Be”), What the World Is Coming To, Voyager (with its great space-age oriented graphics) from spring 1978, and Time Is Slipping Away from 1979. Several tracks from his LPs were radio-aired LP tracks (the lushly orchestrated Theme From the Planets,” the spacy, funky “Disco Lights”) During the ’90s, Wansel continued to work with the reactivated Philadelphia International Records and occasionally toured.

Gianni Dell’Orso & Gianni Oddi – Mondo Di Notte Oggi

null

A sexy Euro soundtrack from the 70s — penned for a film that’s apparently filled with lots of scantily clad showgirls! The style is totally sweet — often heavy on the keyboards, or on the strings — slightly slinky one minute, then soaring to the skies in a Love Unlimited Orchestra mode the next. Most numbers are relatively short, but manage to groove nicely — and a few numbers break from the porn and disco overtones to hit some slightly more playful melodies from an older Italian comedic period. Edda Dell’Orso sings a bit on the record — and Gianni Dell’Orso plays keyboards and directs the orchestra.

Leon Ware – Musical Massage + (Expanded & Remastered)

null

Leon Ware’s classic Motown offering from 1976 came about as the result of another classic recording done by Marvin Gaye. Ware had written the single “I Want You” for a demo recording to score T-Boy Ross a recording contract with Motown. Berry Gordy heard it and told Ware he had to have the song for Marvin Gaye’s next single. He took it to Gaye, who also loved it. Later, as Ware finished the tracks and orchestrations for his own album, he was playing it back for friends at Gaye’s home when Marvin came out of a bedroom to inquire about what it was. He asked for — and received — all the tracks from Ware for the legendary I Want You album. This left Ware no choice but to compose an entirely new set of songs for his own record; the result is Musical Massage. (It should be noted that, according to Ware, Gordy, Gaye, and others felt he should also give this album away as a follow-up to I Want You, but Ware refused.) Musical Massage is the perfect mix of soul, light funk, jazz, and what was about to become the rhythmic foundation for disco. Picture the Motown song orchestrations with arrangements by Barry White for the Salsoul Orchestra and you get a bit of the picture. The disc opens with two smooth soul wonders in “Learning How to Love You” and “Instant Love.” Strings dominate the melodic arrangement and Ware croons directly to them as Ray Parker, Jr. fills the lines with a silky but chunky guitar. Ware’s mellifluous tenor is deep in the swell of strings and guitars as the rest of the band provides a shimmering backbeat for his soul crooning. On a re-recording of the track “Body Heat” — which Ware had recorded as a duet with Minnie Riperton for Quincy Jones’ album of the same name a year earlier — Parker and bassist Chuck Rainey set a groove for Bongo Brown, Gary Coleman, and Bobbye Hall’s percussion orgy. Ware’s vocals, augmented by a three-piece female choir, cover the tune with dripping, seductive, sexual energy. Bobby Womack guests on the title track and “Holiday,” while Gaye also lends a hand on the latter. Both tracks are spurious soul-funk workouts with fat, smooth grooves underlying Ware’s gorgeous voice that melts the heart strings like butter, sounding like the whispering of satin sheets. Produced by Ware with Hal Davis and engineer Cal Harris, the disc has the same sweet, swaying feel as Gaye’s I Want You but is a bit tougher, a little funkier in the breaks. The string arrangements by Dave Blumbery and Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson are among the best the Motown studios issued to date. Ultimately, Musical Massage is a little-known classic from the supposedly twilight years of Motown. This record reveals Ware as a talented but undercelebrated visionary; he envisioned the evolution of soul and went about to bring it to fruition. Musical Massage is a watermark not only for Ware, but for Motown as well.

I’m posting 2 different version beacause the Expanded edition of the original Musical Massage album contains an additional 5 bonus tracks from the Marvin Gaye ‘I Want You’ sessions and comprehensive liner notes but looses 2 tracks from the original release.

Alain Goraguer – La Planète Sauvage (An Original Soundtrack Recording)

null

A totally excellent soundtrack! This is one of the maddest we’ve heard from the 70s — with a baroque mix of wah wah funk and sophisticated orchestrations, very much in the mode of work by David Axelrod or some of the backings heard on Serge Gainsbourg’s best records. No surprise it’s handled by Alain Gouraguer, a groovy Frenchman with a style that’s a mix of the late 60s baroquery of Michel Columbier, and some of the smooth sexiness of the best Italian composers of his age. Great electric piano, wah wah guitar, and soaring strings — with a sound that’s as odd as the cover! Titles include “Le Bracelet”, “Deshominisation”, “Mort De Draag”, “La Femme”, “Mira Et Ten”, and “Ten Et Medor”.

Pieces of Peace – Pieces of Peace

null

Formed in the mid-’60s, the Chicago-based funk and soul band Pieces of Peace certainly had the potential and manpower to reach nationwide success. The group originated around brothers Bernard and Danny Reed, who, thanks to Danny’s connection to Carl Davis, soon began working with the former OKeh producer and A&R rep on his new label, Brunswick Records, and new band JaLynne Sound, alongside drummer Quinton Joseph and songwriters Eugene Record and Barbara Acklin. Things began to take off in 1967 when trumpeter Michael Davis (who later played with Earth, Wind & Fire and Phil Collins, sometimes under the name Rahm Lee) and alto saxophonist Jerry Wilson joined up and the quintet recorded “Soulful Strut” — a song that was then used by and credited to Young-Holt Unlimited — and soon after went on tour with other Brunswick artists. On the way, drummer Harold “Heavy” Nesbitt replaced Joseph, guitarist John Bishop came on, and co-founder Danny Reed left, unhappy with the lack of control he felt he had.

As it turned out, the entire band was unhappy with the way Carl Davis was leading things, and after spending some time backing Gene Chandler, they broke ties with Brunswick and Davis, changed their name to Pieces of Peace, and moved across town to Twinight, home of Syl Johnson. There, as the house band, the group recorded and helped produce singles not only for Johnson but also for Josephine Taylor, Annette Poindexter, and Elvin Spencer. In 1971, with the help of new drummer Fred White (who also went on to play with Earth, Wind & Fire) and singer King Johnson, Pieces of Peace released their first record, “Pass It On, Pts. 1-2.” By now well established in the Windy City, the band brought on keyboardist Benjamin Wright (who would later do the string arrangements for artists like Michael and Janet Jackson) and worked closely with compatriots the Pharaohs, who had their own label, Scarab. And it was with this label that Pieces of Peace made their first and only attempt at a full-length record.

With yet another new drummer, Fred Crutchfield, flutist Joel Brandon, and help from Pharaohs members like Willie Woods, Derf Recklaw-Raheem, and Aaron Dodd, an album was recorded in 1972. The accompanying tour, however, proved to be too much for the band; they broke up in Singapore and the self-titled Scarab record was shelved indefinitely. It wasn’t until famed crate-digger DJ Shadow and funk and soul experts Dante Carfagna and Rob Sevier found the LP and a label willing to re-release it (Quannum) that the general public was able to hear Pieces of Peace in the fall of 2007 (though the song “Pass It On, Pt. 1″ made it on to soul-reviver Numero Group’s March 2007 Eccentric Soul compilation, Twinight’s Lunar Rotation).

The 3 Pieces – Vibes Of Truth

null

A great little album of jazz funk — and the only record we’ve ever seen by this group! The 3 Pieces may not have lasted long in the record business, but this rare album from 1975 has made them legends on the rare groove scene for years. The record was cut during the height of the jazz funk years at Fantasy Records — and it features Donald Byrd handling the production chores, in a similar manner to the style that he used with the more famous Blackbyrds, who were also recording for Fantasy the time. The record features loads of electric piano and ARP, plus some tight and smooth guitar, and a nice rolling groove that is very catchy. A number of tracks have vocals — in kind of a subdued soul mode — and tracks include the groove classics “Backed Up Against The Wall”, “Shortnin Bread”, “Concrete Jungle”, and “Vibes Of Truth”. And believe it or not, there aren’t any vibes on the album!

Prince Phillip Mitchell – Make it Good

null

The long-overdue full length debut from Phillip Mitchell — an artist who cut some great singles over the course of the 70s, and also wrote a fair bit of classics for other, bigger name acts! Phillip did some of his earlier work of the decade in both Memphis and Muscle Shoals — but he also had a key relationship with Norman Connors as well, who helped Mitchell take his southern roots into even more sophisticated soul territory! Mitchell produced the album himself — and arranged with Paul Riser and McKinley Jackson — and the overall sound is a wonderful blend of deeply personal vocals with smoother mellow soul grooves — a really top-shelf affair all the way through, and the kind of album that’s only finally getting its due many years later! Tracks include “Star in the Ghetto”, “You’re All I Got In the World”, “Falling From Heaven”, and “If I Can’t Be Your Man”. CD also features the bonus track “What Part Of Heaven Do You Come From”.

Manzel – Midnight Theme

null

A very, very obscure instrumental funk group from the mid-’70s, Manzel would find much fame decades later once numerous hip-hop producers sampled the drum intro from “Midnight Theme” and, in turn, sent breakbeat collectors scurrying for copies of the original record. During their heyday, Manzel didn’t amount to anything more than a pair of 45 rpm singles for the independent Fraternity Records. It was only later, during the ’90s, that the group attained notoriety. The drum intro from “Midnight Theme” — the A-side of the second of the group’s two 45s — was sampled numerous times, and quite famously at that: most gloriously by Prince Paul (on De La Soul’s “Plug Tunin’,” from the trio’s classic 3 Feet High and Rising album), and later by DJ Muggs (on Cypress Hill’s breakthrough single, “How I Could Just Kill a Man”) and RZA (on Ghostface Killah’s debut single, “Winter Warz”). These are just three instances, though. You can also hear Manzel sampled on recordings by Eric B & Rakim and Ultramagnetic MC’s among other, less well-known instances. Such famous and widespread sampling made Manzel so renowned among beat heads that Kenny Dope (of Masters at Work) and the Undercover Brother (born Victor Piagneri) dug up the original recordings, remastered and remixed them, and reissued them via Dopebrother Records in 2004.
