Funk SOul Jazz
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.

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.
Sunday night, as the Super Bowl played out on the TV with the sound on mute, my sweetheart and I entertained ourselves with some online trivia.
Most of you guys have probably heard a few songs off this remix mixtape like Flying Lotus's "Photoshoot" remix, but here is the full album featuring dope remasterings by Hudson Mohawke, Dam-Funk, Dabrye, Prefuse 73 and many more! On the regular, you would never catch me listening to the original versions of these songs, but these remixes have me singing along to every word...

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.

Gabor Szabo - Dreams - 1968 - Skye This 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.
