2 Great new Jazz albums this week. Papik gives us probably the best Jazz Dance album of the year so far, really nice cool jazz featuring the voice of Alan Scaffardi. Marcus Miller
makes a nice retro sounding groove oriented album with his bass playing a main feature.
At Last the Philadelphia 40th Anniversary Box Set is here, 10 CDs, 181 quality tracks and 800 minutes of pure magic , not cheap but probably the best value set of the year.
There’s some great reissues this week, Carl Sherlock Holmes rare funk album makes its CD debut, Isaac Hayes and Dionne Warwick Live album featuring ‘Cant Hide Love’, plus reissues from Teena Marie, Dee Dee Warwick and Cissy Houston.
Also don’t miss the Philadelphia 40th special edition 7” singles, including the unreleased Jones Girls ‘Baby Don’t Go Yet, and the lesser known Archie Bell ‘Old People’. also check the Ivy Joe Hunter great 70’s soul. There’s also some nice 180gm Vinyl Jazz Reissue LP’s.
