Soulful Divas. Février 2009. Forget the "funk" in this album -- because the best bits are the mellow ones!
Crème D'Cocoa are one of those groups pushing slick bass-heavy funk when they should stick to the mellower cuts -- which they do nicely on this album, in a smooth male/female harmony style that has a bit of a quiet storm feel to it. The funkier cuts are really just uptempo club numbers, not really that strong, but pleasant enough in kind of a shouting catchy chorus sort of way. HEAVY DUTY. German Funk Fieber Vol. 2. 01.

I ended up taking the weekend off, so I guess this isn't going to be a daily log of 45s......Anyway, tonight I have some 45s I recently found for 50 cents each.
There's still some good 45s to find for cheap, and I have three that I specifically bought to resell, but it now seems they're staying with me. First is Mongo Santamaria's "Cold Sweat" on Columbia. I have many Mongo 45s, and I thought I was done buying his stuff, save for "Crazy Lady" on Vaya (anyone have a spare?) , but then I put this one on the turntable to grade and I got hooked. Music « museworthy. “Ode” from Music and Moonlight by Arthur O’Shaughnessy - We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;- World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems.
A Summer Night, 1890, Winslow Homer Vaudeville Musicians, 1917, Charles Demuth. "Fables of Faubus" the "Original Faubus Fables" Fables of FaubusFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "Fables of Faubus" is a song composed by jazz bassist and composer Charles Mingus.
It was written as a direct protest against Arkansas governor Orval E. Faubus, who in 1957 sent out the National Guard to prevent the integration of Little Rock Central High School by nine African American teenagers. The song was first recorded for Mingus' 1959 album, Mingus Ah Um. Emergency ! : "Loveman plays psychedelic swing" Blow Up A Go-Go! Black Soul - Black Soul Music (Pat Les Stache Edit) (pat_les_stache-black_soul_disco. March 2008. More than a year ago a little bird told me that someone had turned up some lost tapes of Tim Maia during his "Racional" phase.
Now, if you don't read Portuguese it's difficult to find any information about Tim's "Racional" phase aside from how its really lauded as his best work, his most funky, etc. As a Tim Maia fanatic, I can agree with all of that, so the recent confirmation of some unreleased "Racional" tapes is indeed a revelation. To give you an idea of the context of this discovery, I've pasted the text from an article I wrote for Fader magazine a few years back. The photos here are courtesy of Paulinho Guitarra, guitarist for Tim Maia for most of his classic albums. Paulinho can be seen in the band pictures - he's the skinny white dude next to Tim when they're holding up the book and the one playing guitar in the band photo. Absolutely Funky Mule.

Gabor Szabo. Gabor Szabo -Dreams -1968 -SkyeThis is no an ordinary Jazz album.
Through the seven pieces here, the guitar is naturally at the forefront, yet the backing group is anything but secondary. Here, Gabor Szabo's guitar genius, set to magnificent arrangements by Gary McFarland pairs his outstanding quintet (featuring Jimmy Stewart) with Gary McFarland's subtle string and horn arrangements in a collection of originals, pop covers, and classical reinterpretations. This is one of the most sophisticated albums Szabo ever cut, and the result is a sort of accessible third-stream music. The album has a slow-building style that steps off of his Impulse years with a deeper, broader vision of music. Szabo has many fine moments, and provides nice spaces for the beautiful guitar solos of Jimmy Stewart.by Douglas Payne. Soul-Sides.com.
