Conya Doss returns with a great new album ‘Clear’ which is well up to her normal high standard and more, check the dancer ‘Get off your @##” , which i believe will be a massive tune. Joey Negro produces the goods again with the excellent ‘Remixed with love Vol 3′ . Christian McBride’s new Jawn’ is another great album from the popular Bass player. Check also new 12″ from Mammal Hands and the broken beats from Neue Grafik.
There are some great re-issues this week from Starvue, Eddie Palmieri’s brilliant Harlem River Drive’ (one of the all time Latin/Funk /Soul albums), spiritual Jazz masterpieces from Mary Lou Williams and Phil Ranelin, and unreleased 5cd/5lp 70’s live set from Charles Mingus. Jazzman have collected together some more British jazz gems on ‘A New life Vol 2’.
There are some really great 45’s from Eighties Ladies, Ruby Andrews, The Charmels, Darrow Fletcher, Maxine Brown , Z.Z.Hill and more plus 12″ reissues from Marlena Shaw, Keni Burke, The O’Jays and George Duke Tom Moulton mix.
