From All About Jazz.com:
----------
Four CDs, six albums (seven if you split out Solus / The Inner Source) that represent the kind of artistic freedom to explore that was rare, even at a time when major labels were supporting fusion and progressive rock. That Duke was able to record this prolifically over such a relatively short period of time—the first session was in April, 1971, the final one January, 1976—while he remained busy as a sideman with Cannonball Adderley and Frank Zappa and as an increasingly in-demand session player, gave him the opportunity to evolve at the kind of pace that's difficult to match today. / read entire article here /

An amazing package of work from George Duke - 6 of his legendary fusion albums for MPS Records, including the never-reissued double-length set Solus / The Inner Source! That incredible album is worth the price of the package alone - as it begins with some sublime trio work from Duke, rooted in jazz but already stretching out in amazing ways - then moves into some even hipper Latin-styled grooves, with Jerome Richardson on reeds and Luis Gasca on a bit of trumpet! Other albums in the set are equally great - and trace Duke's evolution from straighter jazz into funky freer fusion and soul - an incredible musical shift that's presented on the albums Faces In Reflection, Feel, I Love The Blues She Heard My Cry, The Aura Will Prevail, and Liberated Fantasies - each of them classics in their own right, presented together wonderfully here in this complete MPS package! The set is amazing - with a whopping 64 titles in all, and complete notes on all the music - including some recollections from Duke himself.

- Clique Aki:

The man is a complete musician : good songwriter, arranger, producer and...performer. Wether he hoes on the Grand piano or through his massive samples library, Duke has fully integrated sixty years of Jazz music into one album. Some of the songs are pure jazz rock, instrumental beauties(specially "No greater love" with Dennis Chambers on drums), some others are funk grooves with vocals, but lean towards nicely harmonised melody lines (check "411" and "money"). If you like Quincy Jones's "Back on the block", then you'll love this CD.

George Duke - Dukey Treats (2008)


Artist: George Duke
Title Of Album: Dukey Treats
Year Of Release: August 26, 2008
Label: Heads Up International
Genre: Jazz, Funk
Quality: MP3
Bitrate: VBR kbps
Total Time: 01:04:29
Total Size: 89 MB

Veteran keyboardist and producer George Duke remembers a time when funk was a powerful force not just in popular music but in social discourse. Frequently with a measure of wit and irony, and often with a strong dose of positivity at the core, titans like James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone and other funk icons of the `60s and `70s boldly addressed societal concerns ranging from poverty to racial disharmony to the battle of the sexes. Among the numerous treats on this album are not just the songs themselves but the roster of high-profile personnel helping to bring them to life many of them alumni of Duke's earlier bands and projects. Included on the guest list are bassist Christian McBride, percussionist Sheila E and trumpeter Michael Patches Stuart, to name a few. Along with Duke himself, the vocal crew includes Jonathan Butler, Howard Hewett, Teena Marie, Rachelle Ferrell and more.

Tracklist:

01. Everyday Hero 05:04
02. I Tried To Tell You 04:45
03. A Fonk Tail 04:06
04. Dukey Treats 06:53
05. Listen Baby 05:35
06. Mercy 05:39
07. Somebody Laid It On Us 04:50
08. Creepin' (Ghoulie Remix) 05:01
09. Right On Time 05:28
10. Sudan 05:11
11. Are You Ready 04:32
12. Images Of Us 07:25

- Clique Aki:

The veteran keyboard/piano Master and producer (Anita Baker, Regina Belle, Rachelle Ferrell, Dianne Reeves, Marilyn Scott, Flora Purim...) returns with a very solid offering.
This is an album that is closest to his late 70's Epic albums (Reach for It, Dukey Stick etc..).
He surrounds himself with friends old and new on this set, including Sheila E. on percussion and backing vocals, a full horn section (including Michael "Patches" Stewart on trumpet and saxophonist Everette Harp), Jef Lee Johnson and Ray Fuller on guitars, and vocalists DeeDee Foster, Josie James, and Lynn Davis, as well as guest appearances by Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Wah Wah Watson, Lenny Castro on percussion, Christan McBride, Wayman Tisdale amd Michael Manson on bass and vocalists Rachelle Ferrell, Lynne Fiddmont, Teena Marie, Terry Dexter, Howard Hewett, Jonathan Butler.
A crowd-pleaser with a warm personality, he also has a serious side, and the dozen new songs here show the breadth of his artistry and awareness.
Tracks like "Everyday Hero" and the slowish masterpiece "Dukey Treats" have that P Funk tinged sound.
"Mercy" is a classic Jazz Funk style groove with a wicked instrumental break and keyboard solo following the vocal duet.
The complex instrumental "Images Of Us" is slightly more leftfield but is another Jazz Funk groover.
The gentler "I Tired To Tell You" and "Listen Baby" contrast with the frenetic Funk, as does the EWF sounding "Are You Ready".
Also on the mid-tempo side check "Somebody Laid It On Us" or the message based "Sudan", an indictment of the horrors of Darfur.
This is probably the best George Duke album for some time.
My favourite tracks: "Images Of Us", "Everyday Hero" and "Listen Baby".
"Dukey Treats" debuts at # 1 of The Billboard Top Contemporary Jazz chart and # 192 of The Billboard 200 Chart.

Great album - the pioneers of Brit funk at their best. Time (live) is superb but disappointed in Somebody help me out! just over 1 minute live - seems little point. It would be great to get a whole live set from them - come on guys, how about it?

17. (Somebody) Help Me Out (1:50)

- Clique Aki:

Anyone familiar with LOTW and their sound will want to snap up this classic album - it is undoubtedly one the best soul/funk albums Britain has ever produced and certainly worth more than the modest asking price.

However, it is unfortunate that EMI's reissue team have once again let themselves down with a flat, rough-sounding transfer that doesn't do justice to Augie Johnson's crisp upfront production. Interesting as it is to hear LOTW/Beggar & Co/Funk Jazz Collective's poorly recorded recent live recordings included here as bonus tracks, it surely would have been better to include the blistering original 12" mixes.

All credit to EMI for making this available but like Johnnie Taylor's 'What About My Love" CD issue and the recent 2-CD Capitol Disco compilation it presents another wasted opportunity by EMI to cash-in on their vast back catalogue and wealth of sonic expertise.

VA - Contemporary Funk 2009


Artist : VA
Album : Contemporary Funk
Genre : Funk
Source : CDDA
Label : Tramps Records


The coolest collection of modern funk we've ever seen - and one that goes way beyond the familiar names of the genre that sometimes show up too much on other compilations! This one really digs deep - and the tunes are often as rough and raw as the music of the 60s and 70s that inspired them - a true treasure trove of work from the contemporary deep funk underground, but mostly music that's not been in wide circulation around the globe. We've always trusted Tramp for their funky 45s - but we love them even more for making a record like this - really blowing our minds with a range of hard-hitting tracks that show us we still have plenty to learn about what's going on out there in the funky hinterland. Titles include "Izzy Come Izzy Go" by The Funk Revolution, "One Man Song" by The Qualitons, "Go Go Train" by Big Joe Louis & The Soul Igs, "Chicken Lickin" by The Fantastics, "Fallin In Debt" by DeRobert & The Half-Truths, "Stop The Madness" by Tynnes Well & The Magic Fountains, "Humpin" by The Unstoppable S Robinson & His Marvelaires, "Brasil No 7" by Ben Martin Trio, "Soul Pop" by Mauri Bailey, and "Hakusha" by The Neapolitans. © 1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.

Shawn Lee conjures up some important musical forms. His new album 'Soul Visa' has all the hallmarks of Lee's auteur approach to his music. he has produced, mixed, sang & played every instrument on the album. Both rich in harmony and dynamic in scope, Lee commits himself to the classic three minute pop song. Inspired by the songwriting geniuses of Bacharach and David, Brian Wilson and Jimmy Webb, Shawn mixes it up musically but always keeps things soulful and melodic. It features a wealth of contemporary production techniques, inventive instrumentation and lush vocal harmonies. It's a place where the sounds of yesterday meet the sounds of today, skilfully constructing a conceptual bridge between the old school and the new. 'Soul Visa' has grabbed the attention of the Japanese and the French particularly, where Shawn is a highly regarded cult artist whose records are considered to be musical masterpieces. Shawn's music has found fans and supporters in such fellow artists as badly Drawn Boy, Zero 7, Coldcut and Vikter Duplaix 'Soul Visa' is a heartfelt, reflective album full of soulful, clever songs that you will play again and again.

Nils Landgren Funk Unit - Paint It Blue (1997)



Artist: Nils Landgren Funk Unit
Title Of Album: Paint It Blue
Year Of Release: 1997
Label: ACT
Genre: Jazz, Funk


Nils Landgren (born 1956) is a Swedish funk and jazz trombone player.

Between 1972 and 1978 he studied classical trombone at the music college in Karlstad and at the university in Arvika. Meeting the Swedish Folk-Jazz pioneer Bengt-Arne Wallin as well as trombonist Eje Thelin persuaded Nils to move from strict classical studies to improvisation and to begin the development of his own approach.

After his graduation, Nils moved to Stockholm to work as a professional trombone player. He was soon touring with the successful Swedish pop star, Bjorn Skifs' "Blue Swede" who got to number 1 in the U.S. pop charts with "Hooked on a feeling". Thad Jones in 1981 invited Landgren to join his new big band project "Ball of Fire", as the lead-trombonist. Ever since that time Nils Landren has been involved in most styles equally: jazz and rock, soul and hip hop, big band sessions, and by his own reckoning, at least 500 albums including such internationals stars as ABBA, The Crusaders, Eddie Harris, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, Wyclef Jean and Herbie Hancock.

Heavy funk in a variety of cool colors - the first-ever collection of work from German sound library labels Golden Ring & Happy Records - and a real revelation to our ears! Grooves are plenty heavy throughout - lots of funky drums and burning basslines - with instrumentation that runs the gamut from choppy fusion to soundtrack-styled funk - often with lots of keyboards and guitar in the mix! The labels are almost a refuge for players who'd previously cut more famous funky work at the MPS label - artists who include Peter Thomas, Klaus Weiss, and Sigi Schwab, all of whom make some key appearances here - moving at the same great funky jazz pace they were hitting earlier in the 70s. Other artists are more obscure, but equally great - and the set's a true treasure trove of funky grooves you'll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Titles include "Present News" and "Jumping Balls" by Klaus Weiss, "Sound Colours A" by Peter Thomas, "Getting High" and "Get The Groove" by Sigi Schwab, "Mr Marco's Blues" and "Chicago Song" by Ralph Marco, "Open Up" and "Pick It Up" by Frank Mantis, "Late Train" and "Dark Alley" by Ken Aldin, and "Just Funky" by Klaus Weiss. © 1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
