Release:1977 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Luv N’Haight is proud to re-issue Sweet Maya’s self-titled album. A midwest jazz-funk classic with elements of folk, jazz, soul, funk and rock combining to create a heady blend reminiscent of ‘70s work by French band Cortex and songwriting maestro Terry Callier.The music of Sweet Maya is an extension of each member. As individuals they bring together diverse backgrounds, as a group they blend it all into a sound that is exciting and full of warmth. The six-piece group of multi-talented instrumentalists has five lead singers, four songwriters and four arrangers. The music that grows from the contact of such persons is evidenced in this album. It is Sweet Maya (the Illusion) that flows through and shapes the many idioms of their music. It is Rob Hayes, Tom Davis, Janice Lakers, John Chamberlin, and Mark Bowen who convey the experience.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Harry Whitaker is a piano player, producer and arranger who on MLK day 1976, at the age of 26, recorded Black Renaissance “Body, Mind, and Spirit,” a holy grail amongst collectors of soul-jazz and rare groove. So rare, it’s virtually a myth to many collectors and music aficionados.Made up of two long tracks that periodically build and release for forty minutes over two sides of an LP it’s an improvised masterpiece combining Afrocentric spiritual soul, jazz, poetry, amazing solos, a tasty bass line or two and more than a fair share of funky beats. It’s also one of theearliest albums to feature rapping. “I called the project Black Renaissance because that is what I wanted to see happen – especially in music.”Given its rarity, when asked if he was surprised that people knew about the album Whitaker jokes “I’ve told enough people about it over the years! Now they can actually hear it. It was a record before it’s time.”Harry Whitaker cut his teeth on the best of the Roy Ayers Ubiquity releases (including playing keys on “We Live In Brooklyn Baby” and co-producing the “Coffy” OST) on and making a living working closely with Roberta Flack – as her musical director, even playing on her big Eugene McDaniels’ written hit “I Feel Like Makin’ Love.” Black Renaissance “Body, Mind, and Spirit,” was his first attempt at a project where he wrote and composed the music and played keys on all tracks.This album features Woody Shaw, Azar Lawrence, Buster Williams, Billy Hart and Mtume amongst others.

LP | 2012 | US | Reissue (Luv N Haight)

Release:2012 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Arguably the best album legendary jazz musician Wendell Harrison cut in the 80s “Organic Dream” features the classic track “Love Juice”. The album’s quite a departure from the spiritual jazz he’s well known for, instead dipping into modern soul and R&B territory.Founder of spiritual jazz imprint and jazz collective Tribe Records along with Phil Ranelin, Wendell Harrison has well over 30 releases and is featured on numerous others by other jazz greats such as Grant Green, Hank Crawford and the great Sun Ra.As a label Tribe spearheaded a growing black political consciousness. The group also included drummer and composer Doug Hammond, pianist Ken Cox and trumpeter Charles Moore. They performed together live and on one another's recordings releasing them on the label. Tribe also published a magazine, a quarterly monthly publication dedicated to musical and political revolutionaries and political issues. Tribe had pretty much disbanded by 1975 but through Wendell and Phil’s efforts the catalog has found a new audience through reissues from various labels including “Searching For Soul” also on Luv N’Haight which was a collection of soul, funk, and jazz from Detroit. "Organic Dream" is always high on collector’s lists as a must-have from Wendell Harrison’s catalog. Electric keyboards and vocals add to the usual mix of modern soul jazz with a sound closer to R&B. Other stand out tracks include “The Wok”, “Ginseng Love”, and “Peace of Mind”. This is the first time the full album has been reissued and available on CD. The deluxe LP will be housed in a tip-on jacket with liner notes and photos and only available in limited quantities.

Genre:Organic Grooves
The group started working on the record in the summer of 2014, but Gean was able to lay down his signature gravelly vocals ononly two songs before he became ill and fell into a coma. He remained unconscious for twelve days, and it was during thattime he heard God's voice telling him to get back to work. "Don't let me down, son," the voice commanded.Gean took that admonition to heart. He and the band returned to the studio in January 2015, where he incorporated a rivetingspoken-word account of his near-death epiphany into the band's reworking of Tim Maia's “Rational Culture.” After laying down vocals and hearing a rough mix of the song from fellow original Relatives member Earnest Tarkington, Gean—or God, orboth—must have thought his work was finally done, because he died the next day.Goodbye World is their second full-length effort after releasing the Electric Word in 2013. Named for a song that Gean first cut over fifty years ago with the Southernaires and performed live with the Relatives in the 70s and at their first reunion show. As if guided by the hand of destiny, the album not only has Geanbeing “called back to life” and work from his comatose state, but also marks the return of Charles Ray “Gypsy” Mitchell, the group's original guitarist. Gypsy had left the group in ’72 or ’73, and didn't rejoin them until a hometown street fair gig in late 2013. His Eddie Hazel-meets-Ernie Isley guitar heroics andbass-to-falsetto vocal range are a key contributor to the album's sound (that’s Gypsy singing both lead and back-up on “No Man Is An Island”), and he arranged the vocals and rhythm section on half of the record’s tracks.

Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Originally released on Gloria and her husband Walter Whisenhunt’s label Selector Sound as a 7in single, “Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing” features her soaring vocalsbacked by luscious strings, orchestral horns and a searing guitar. On the flip is “Brother Less Than A Man” which sounds like a proto Funkadelic/Parliament psychedelic funk bomb. Pressed as a 7in single on the House Guests label, it highlights a grittier side of her singing that matches the song’s depth and intensity. Backed by a rhythm section featuring Bootsy Collins and brother Catfish who along with Gloria and her husband founded the labelafter leaving James Brown’s band. Look for the similarly titled anthology of Gloria’s ouput on the Selector Sound label to drop later in 2015.

Release:2014 / US – Original

Formed in 1970, Hokis Pokis was a seminal band in the New York disco scene with a handful of underground local hit singles including the highly-sought after “Nowhere” “Find What You’re Looking For” and “City Rhythm”. Releasing several singles from the mid ‘70s all the way to the ’80s, Luv N’Haight has compiled all of Hokis Pokis’ musical output into an album which also includes 2 previously unreleased tracks. Remixed and remastered digitally from the original master tapes, the versions on the album are elevated from the already amazing originals with a cleaner sound and harder-hitting bottom end, bridging the gap between dancefloor fanatics in disco’s heyday to their modern day counterparts. Never before seen photos along with corresponding liner notes from’s Bill Brewster are included in the deluxe double-LP package, telling the story of a group of friends that embark on a musical journey that continues to this day. From the beginning of disco’s rise to its inevitable decline, hitting a low point with the “Disco Sucks” movement, to its eventual resurgence in popularity with today’s dance-culture, Hokis Pokis has remained together bonded by friendship first, coupled with a shared musical vision that continues to endure. Look for Under the Influence of Hokis Pokis album later in the year featuring heavyweight producers Kon, DJ Spun, Citizen Kane, Al Kent, DJ Day and others who all take their turn creating new, original dancefloor classics from the original multi-tracks.

Ubiquity's founder Michael McFadin spent most of his youth on the burgeoning Southern California punk rock scene. Later when he became a DJ during the rare groove era there was one record from his past that was a quirky staple in his sets "Down At The Laundry Mat" by Black Randy and The Metro Squad. "Whenever I play it someone asks me about it and I've never grown tired of it" says Michael "so we decided to rerelease it". Most commonly known for its inclusion on the single-sided, clear vinyl Yes LA compilation that was released on the Dangerhouse label and also included songs by The Germs, The Bags and others. The flip "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" was on the only album by Black Randy and The Metro Squad "Pass The Dust, I Think I'm Bowie" and is a freaked out, garagey, ritalin-infused version of this JB classic!
