We are delighted to introduce many of you to the music of Brandee Younger. Brandee is a very talented Jazz Harpist who has made two excellent albums and an EP, the latest ‘Wax & Wane’ produced by Casey Benjamin. Her music draws inspiration from Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane, is amazingly relaxing but also very contemporary. We are enchanted by and love her at Soul Brother and thoroughly recommend you check her music out.
Our long awaited reissue of The Sisters Love ‘Give Me Your Love’ 45 has arrived this morning and is available as a standard Dinked version or a very limited edition DJ Copy with solid centre. This is the first legal reissue of this Rare groove classic version of Curtis’ great song.
Andrew Wasylyk comes up with a mystical Scottish Folky Jazz album on Athens of The North,and Time Grove has an interesting jazz album on Wah Wah.

Mighty Ryders classic album ‘Help us spread the message’ is now issued ion 180gm vinyl with a limited edition tip on sleeve, and Joe Bataan ‘Afrofilipino’ (inc his great version of The Bottle) is out on 180gm LP. Bubbha Thomas and the Lightmen ‘Country fried Chicken’ is a great 70’s album fusing Jazz, Funk and early disco well worth checking and there are good ressieus on vinyl from James Brown, Purple Image and Ken Boothe.
