  1. Childish Gambino - Awaken, My Love (2016) Young Lando Calrissian was deep into P-Funk.
  2. Vampire Weekend (2008) The War On Drugs - Lost In The Dream (2014)
  3. Glad it made it and that you enjoyed it. I feel like I am still coming to grips with the Schubert quartets I have (and indeed the very idea of experiencing and weighing multiple versions of classical works) but I can't say no to such a generous offer. Thank you.
  4. Atlantic Rhythm and Blues, Volume 3 Some mid-50s Joe Turner, Ray Charles, Coasters et al, while I get in the kitchen and make some noise with the pots and pans. This has got to be one of the best various artist compilation sets ever.
  5. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here A joke, I think, about so much 'new' vinyl being space being given over to reissues of a relatively small number of safe, bankable classics.

  7. New Orleans: The Original Sound of Funk (1951-77/2016 - CD) Soul Jazz Records are still going strong with their series of New Orleans R&B compilations, 16 years on from the first volume and now up to about seven issues once you take in parallel products. I don't think they've ever topped the first couple, but nothing seems like the bottom of the barrel either. I simply love this music, sitting on the shoulders of early jazz and 50s R&B, but occupying its own little niche apart from the contemporary soul power houses of Motown, Stax/Atlantic and James Brown. The only drawback with going deep down the rabbit hole with these kinds of genre compilations is you get a lot of duplication: 4/18 tracks here I have elsewhere, kind of par for the course, but I'm still a happy customer.

  9. Playing some Australian jazz, bought recently in the classifieds here. Pretty sure I owe mikey d thanks for introducing me to both these artists. Julien Wilson Trio - Swailing (2014 - CD) The Catholics - yonder (2013 - CD)
  10. Magnificent! Didn't we used to have a show us your music collection kind of thread?
  11. Eddie Henderson - Anthology A selection of tracks from four albums on Blue Note, then Capitol (1975-78). Very nice jazz-funk in the Herbie Hancock vein. Mostly Mwandishi and Headhunters players, though Herbie himself is on a few tracks only. The flugelhorn is a lovely instrument and he has a fine sense of space and spaciness.
  12. ^^^Excellent album and you are right about the acuity of the songs.
  13. Bob Dylan has delivered his Nobel lecture, on his own terms, naturally, and at the eleventh hour.
  14. Are these pick up only? If you will post (ACT 2604) I'll take these please: Julien Wilson The Catholics Tomasz Stanko Meshell Ndegocello
  15. Valerie June - The Order of Time (2017 - CD) She has an unusual voice, small with a slightly pinched nasal twang, though that probably makes it sound bad when it isn't. It's actually quite striking and she uses it well here to bring a unified feel to a set of songs that are stylistically varied. I've had it on high rotation for the last week and it's shaping up as a favourite of the year so far.
