So many good records are issued these days that commercial music needs to buy more and more space in the big outlets to keep on being sold... If, like us, you don't give a damn about this commercial shit the people who pull the strings are desperatly trying to sell, everywhere, in every media, then you're in right place. A warm and comfy one. A place that tries to attend to your musical needs with quality stuff that happens now. you should be able to find all these records easily almost everywhere, maybe not for a long time, but in the coming weeks it should be OK.
This time, we'll play it rootsy, starting with the excellent retrospective of one of our favorite producers ever, David Axelrod, the man who put space into jazz to make it sound heavy. We'd be advising next the Henri Guédon compilation from Manu Boubli on Comet Records, a nice companion to the tribute mix you'll find on these pages. It's starting to be hard to find, but as it's a can't miss in memory of the late drum master... Other obvious choices are Gilles Peterson's new compilation, which finds Gilles at the top of his digging force, or the new Soul Jazz Records gathering of some Sound Dimension's superb instrumentals tracks from Studio One, or else a new "buy-it-with-your-eyes-closed" Luv'n'Haight compilation of rare american soul, "Searching For Soul". OK, there's nothing new in there, but trust us, cos' it's all top of the hip.
