Invisible Baby - by Marco Benevento.
Marco Benevento is riding a creative surge. Proof in point is the 30-year old keyboardist’s debut studio album Invisible Baby, on HYENA Records. The collection proves Benevento a sonic innovator in peak form, defying boundaries and blasting through genres to carve out his own universe.
Low On Cash, Rich In Love - by Eric Lindell.
Eric's rich, smoky vocals lead the way through an infectious blend of smoldering heart-tuggers, rhythm-heavy workouts, Crescent City grooves and Latin-tinged R&B. Terrific, tasty rock 'n' soul, with a New Orleans twist.
Country Ghetto - by JJ Grey & MOFRO.
JJ Grey and MOFRO exude rocking, funky, melodic, front porch realism in every song they play. Grey comes from a long tradition of Southern storytellers, and his songs oftentimes use the loss of his natural surrounding and the marginalization of the Southern culture he grew up in as a metaphor for universal truths.
102% - by The New Mastersounds.
Bristling heavy funk with abundant shades of afrobeat, soul jazz, boogaloo, and distorted rock color, 102% is the fifth full length album/cd effort by Britain’s most dangerous funk quartet.
Play Pause Stop - by The Benevento/Russo Duo.
Play Pause Stop, the latest disc by the Benevento/Russo Duo, is as much of an anomaly as the band that created it. Yes, it is a rock album - but there is no guitarist, no bassist, and you can sing along even though there are no words.
The Sameness of Difference - by Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey.
Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Joel Dorn, the album finds the trio playing at the absolute pinnacle of their collective powers.
Super Heavy Organ - by Robert Walter.
Infusing the New Orleans music of the past with his own ideas, the resulting music is both exploratory and modern while maintaining its ties to the heritage of jazz.
Best Reason To Buy The Sun - by The Benevento-Russo Duo.
Two guys, four hands, kaleidoscopically exploding wall of sound. The Duo's sound, found on their new record, is telescoped blow-up of the ghosts of New York's underground past.
Giving Up the Ghost - by Robert Walter's 20th Congress .
The sound combines just about every form of music into a driving, syncopated groove that will move fans of jazz, soul, blues, roots rock, and more.
Medicated Magic - by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
A kinetic hybrid of traditional brass band marches, funk, R&B, bop, gospel and rock that never fails to please.
What You Hear Is What You Get - by the Melvin Sparks Band.
The talent that Melvin has gathered to make this small piece of musical history blends traditional jazz legends with new artists. Melvin shines brighter than ever in this testament to the roots of acid jazz.
