This week's selection aims for the groove in your mind.
Things kick off with Gilles Peterson sublime rediscovery, Darondo, who mixes everything we love from the San Francisco sound of the beginning of the 70s. Out on one of our favorite labels out there for so many years now: Luv'N'Haight, the reissues subsidiary of Ubiquity Records.
We've chosen next two splendid and untemporal jazz albums, one where former Can percussionist Jaki Liebezeit joins forces again with german dub electronics maestro Burnt Friedman (the -excellent-first volume was issued in 2002, on Nonplace Records too), and another where Nostalgia 77 downtempo outfit from the Tru Thoughts label expands its wings in a full 8-piece british-afro-american-sun-jazz orchestra.
After this passionate soul-soothing session, you could either go for some brand new roots funk, with the best selection of what's happening in the scene today, from The Bamboos to Sharon Jones, Breakestra, The New Mastersounds or Quantic ("Stay On The Groove", out on Freestyle Records), or opt for a perfect tracklist of cool reggae soul, masterminded as usual by the nice folks at Soul Jazz Records, who're really doing the job as it should be.
