Elvin Jones' connection to the John ColtraneQuartet is inescapable, but it shouldn't be the onlydefining feature of his career. After all, Jonesexpanded the role of the jazz percussionist in thepost-bop era, and helped bridge the gap to moreavant-garde styles of drumming through hisvirtuostic style. This style continued to developand grow after departing the Coltrane Quartet(Due to displeasure over Coltrane's addition of asecond drummer) and going solo.Before his departure however, Jones was alreadya prolific figure in his own rite, having alreadyperformed with the likes of Miles Davis andCharles Mingus long before even connecting withJohn Coltrane. He also regularly collaborated withbassist and fellow Coltrane Quintet compatriotJimmy Garrison, forming the recording collectivethe Elvin Jones/Jimmy Garrison Sextet, recordingseveral albums together. 1964's Illumination! wasone such album, which featured the rhythmsection pair joined by McCoy Tyner, also from theColtrane Quintet, on piano, as well as strongsession turns from Sonny Simmons(Alto Sax/English Horn), Charles Davis(Bari Sax), and William Lasha (Clarinet/Flute).A highly sought after set of advanced hardbop, featuring some of Jones' most powerfulpercussion chops.

As prolific and innovative an artist Prince Rogers Nelson(Best known by his eponymous stage name Prince) wasin his lifetime, he was also notorious for refusing to playnicely with his record label. Especially Warner BrothersRecords, his longtime label since his debut. Tensionsbetween the pop singer/songwriter came to a head duringthe 90s, when after a series of slights related to rightsissues and album releases, Prince went to great lengthsto attempt to get out of his contract with the major label.He went about this by releasing collections of unreleasedmaterial and B-sides under the Prince moniker, whilerecording new songs as the unpronounceable "LoveSymbol", which would often be simplified to "The Artist(Formerly Known As Prince)" in the media. Thesesongs in turn would be released on NPG Records, anindependent label formed after the shuttering of PaisleyPark Records by Warner Brothers, and would release therest of Prince's new material up to his passing in 2016.One of NPG Records' first releases was a compilationshowcasing things to come from the upstart imprint, titled1-800-NEW-FUNK. In addition to new materialfrom Prince, it featured new and unreleased tracks fromfunk/soul veterans like George Clinton and MavisStaples, as well as up-and-comers like Mayte Garcia andNona Gaye, as well as tracks from Prince side-projectslike Madhouse, and his backing band The New PowerGeneration. While the compilation was not a majorcommercial success on par with Prince's solo works, thealbum has over time become a must-have for recordcollectors, and is an indelible part of any Princecompletist's catalogue.

His first set of self-issued albums predated the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and were a harbinger of best of the 1970s jazz underground. Over the course of the decade, he contributed to a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo that is just beginning to be understood. Each album contains 2LPs and comes with a download card for WAV files, and footage of live performances included. Booklet detailing Thomas and his band’s remarkable trajectory also included in the set.

Presented in both stereo and previously unissued mono mixesFANCY PANTS (NA5156)Fancy Pants is Thomas’s second LP with his Lightmen band and is a more introspective, meditative affair; it stands alongside the best of the early 1970s jazz underground, from Phil Cohran to Phil Ranelin toSun Ra. Presented in both stereo and previously unissued, extended mono mixes.ENERGY CONTROL CENTER (NA5157)Energy Control Center, Thomas’s third LP with his Lightmen band is his masterpiece: deep-set, maverick jazz that smolders in the embers of a cultural revolution. This is a highpoint amongst the best of the 1970s, and this version of the album contains second disc with bonus tracks: unreleased alternate takes, including two versions of the Spiritual Jazz classic “All Praises To Allah,” and the two singles Thomas produced for poet and activist Thomas Meloncon.COUNTRY FRIED CHICKEN (NA5158) Country Fried Chicken, Thomas’s fourth LP with his Lightmen band and the last of his classic period, is his most accessible, a mixture of funk and spiritual jazz.

Er gilt als bedeutender Repräsentant des traditionellen nordindischen GesangsundInstrumentalstil Khyal, dessen Ursprünge sich bis ins 13. Jahrhundert zurückführen lassen. In diesemverbinden sich indische Musikstile mit persischen, arabischen und türkischen Melodiesystemen zu einerornamentreichen und klangfarbenprächtigen Kontemplation. Das Wort Khyal stammt aus dem Arabischenund bedeutet in etwa Idee, Vorstellung oder auch Phantasie. Beim Khyal wird der Sänger meist melodischvon der Streichlaute Sarangi oder einem Harmonium unterstützt, für den Rhythmus sorgt dasKesseltrommelpaar Tabla. Manche Sänger spielen nebenbei Kastenzither, Instrumentalstücke werden meistauf dem Sitar dargebracht. Ustad Naseeruddin Saami ist der letzte Vertreter der "Qawwal Bachcha/DilliGharana"-Schule. In seiner Sangeskunst gelingt es ihm, mit vollkommener Reinheit 49 Mikrotöne innerhalbder Oktave zu treffen und diese ausdrucksstark zu verbinden. Der Hauptton Sa wird dabei zur Heimat alleranderen Töne. "God Is Not A Terrorist" wurde vom Grammy-Gewinner Ian Brennan produziert.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Drum-machine soul, funk, disco and boogie from Buffalo, NYC. Rare 7” singlesand previously unreleased tracks presented as an album for the first time.In the early ’70s, Jessie Key and Sylvester Cleary – two passionate idealists living in Buffalo, New York – formeda close friendship based on a mutual mission to better their city. The Attica State Prison Riot of 1971 was aburning memory, and the Arthur vs. Nyquist lawsuit – brought against the City of Buffalo for creating andmaintaining a racially segregated school system – was on the docket. Key was once a cotton-laborer inMississippi, who journeyed north for school where he met his kindred spirit, Cleary. The two struck up an intensefriendship, bought a drum machine and recorded their first 45, “A Man,” a paean to self-actualization and BlackAmerican empowerment, which they custom pressed and issued privately.Dozens of recordings followed over a decade long span, issued on local labels and warehoused on cassettetapes. Perennial optimists, Key & Cleary tried any – perhaps every! – path they could demarcate in hopes offorwarding their agenda of self-effected, positive change. They formed Buffalo’s first minority-owned constructioncompany, opened a health food restaurant in a building previously occupied by a fast food chain, and evenconcocted a candy bar called “The Buffalo Treat,” which they manufactured and sold locally. Eventually theystarted their own label, Buffalo’s Reflection. On it they released their masterpiece, “What It Takes To Live,” asought-after disco and Northern Soul classic, which previously appeared on Now-Again’s Soul Cal anthology.This album collates the breadth of Key & Cleary’s recordings from 1970 until the mid 1980s, both the songsissued on rare 7” singles and previously unreleased. It presents a conjoined musical vision and tells the story ofa duo years ahead of their time, both musically and culturally. Love Is The Way was their ethos – their goal wasto enlighten humanity and to bend history in a more loving direction through communion.

Along with the likes of Charles Earland, Dan Fogel,and Larry Young, Jimmy McGriff represented anew wave of eclectic, and highly prolific soul-jazzorganists to emerge during the 1960s and 1970s.Unlike his contemporaries however, McGriffas often been unfairly forgotten in the annals ofjazz history, despite being highly acclaimed amongcritics for his creative vitality, his deftness inadapting to the fusion of genres, and his distinctlysmooth and polished play-style. Nonetheless,he maintained a strong cult following throughouthis career, and became venerated for his workwith the Hammond B-3 organ in his hometownof Philadelphia.1971's Groove Grease is a prime example not justof Jimmy McGriff's skills on the jazz organ, but ofhis versatility as an artist. A largely improvisedsession that serves as a seamless transition fromhis classic hard bop sounds into the jazz-funksounds of the 1970s, which were growing inpopularity. Alongside a collective of sessionmusicians, which included heavy-hitters likeHorace Ott on electric piano, Everett Barksdale andWayne Bennett on guitar, and Richard Davis onbass, McGriff applies a funky sheen to a selectionof jazzy covers and originals on Groove Grease.Features his take on compositions byHenry Mancini, Eddie Haywood, Sammy Fain, andmany more.

Nobody could have suspected the path that Clarence Henry Reidwould take during the 1960s. During this time he worked as asinger/songwriter and producer for the likes of KC & TheSunshine Band, Bobby Byrd, Gwen McCrae, and various others.He would also release his own compositions, including the deepsoul classic "Nobody But You Babe", which would become a samplingfavorite of KRS-One, Erykah Badu, DMX, and more. ThoughReid maintained a reputation as a consummate professionalamong the romantic soul crowd, outside of his day-job he turneda complete 180, writing and performing humorous, deliberatelyraunchy and sexually-explicit parodies of songs. These parodieswould be relegated strictly to friends at parties, and wouldn't seea wide audience until the 1970s hit.In 1971 Reid would gather a collection of studio musicians,including famed R&B sidemen Timmy Thomas & Benny Latimoreon keys, and Little Beaver on guitar, to finally commit theseparodies to wax. In order to protect his identity as a songwriterReid took on the stage name Blowfly, and dressed as a comicbook super villain for live performances and photos. From therehe would release numerous studio albums of similarly crudeparodies throughout the 70s and 80s, which were enormouslypopular as party records. These records would also go on tobecome a wealth of sampling fodder for artists like Jurassic 5, ThePharcyde, DJ Shadow, Eazy-E, and many more, as well as leadReid to collaborate with artists as varied as soul contemporaryKing Coleman, to former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, toganja-centric rapper Afroman.1978 saw the release of Blowfly's Zodiac Party, a loosely definedconcept album which framed Reid's explicit renditions around thetheme of the Greek Zodiac symbols. Reid had already coveredthis topic earlier on the similarly titled Blowfly Zodiac, but ZodiacParty differentiates itself from its lack of parodies, instead placingReid in the center of a raucous shindig with his backing band,schmoozing effortlessly with excited partygoers, curious to knowtheir signs. It's a singularly surreal entry in the parodist's catalog,but a no less entertaining 70s party record.

It was a perfect match for Blowfly. The resultingalbum was simply titled Disco, and featured significantlyincreased production values, a more polished sound, and theaddition of string sections and backing choruses.

The live performance which would be the focus of Miles Davis' 1965 album, My Funny Valentine, was the second of two live sets recorded at the recently built Philharmonic Hall in New York. The concert, consisting primarily of slow and mid-tempo numbers, presented a tense and awkward atmosphere to Davis and the latest iteration of his quintet; they were embarking on their highest prestige gig at the time, right on the cusp of the assassination of president John F. Kennedy. Tensions were so high that by the end of the concert they believed that they had botched their performance, and bombed the entire show.Fortunately Davis and his quintet were wrong. Far from bombing, the recordings on My Funny Valentine were critically applauded, with Davis biographer Ian Carr going on to call the album "...one of the very greatest recordings of a live concert."My Funny Valentine features inspired performances by Davis and his crew, who brought solemn depth to compositions by Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Victor Young, Jimmy Van Heusen, and a live take on "All Blues", the lone Davis piece on the record. My Funny Valentine would not only rank as one of his finest live recordings, but it would be his last collaboration with saxophonist George Coleman, ushering in the arrival of his "Second Great Quintet" period.

Renowned and revered for his improvisational abilities, his contributions to the lexicon of jazz standards, and his many innovations in composition, it's no wonder that Thelonius Monk's catalog is one of the most recorded of all time. (Topped only by Duke Ellington.) An eccentric and quirky pianist, Monk's recordings were marked by strategic dissonance, abrupt key changes, and the usage of silence as an instrument, a style which was not fully understood in its time, (One jazz critic referred to Monk as "the elephant at the keyboard") but would prove highly influential to the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Mulatu Astatke, Chick Corea, and even his contemporaries like Miles Davis and Charles Mingus. In 1964, Monk released his seventh album with Columbia Records, simply titled Monk, featuring a lineup of famed jazz session greats, including Larry Gales on bass, Ben Riley on drums, and Charlie Rouse on tenor saxophone. Monk only featured seven tracks, only two of which were original compositions, but Monk's style can be heard all across the 46-minute collection. With cool jazz and hard bop spins on showtune obscurities like "April In Paris" and "Just You, Just Me", jazz standards like "(Just One Way To Say) I Love You" as well as Monk's own works like "Pannonica" and "Teo", a tribute to Columbia's legendary jazz producer, Teo Macero.

a sexy und HHV präsentieren das sagenhafte Erfolgsalbum "Tatortreiniger Soundtracks" von Carsten Erobique Meyer in einer zweiten - bei uns exklusiv erhältlichen - Farbversion. Diese ist farblich an das Outfit des Tatortreinigers angelehnt. Alle anderen Versionen- bis auf wenige schwarze Scheiben - sind ausverkauft. Limitiert auf 500 Stück. Danach wird es keine weitere Farbversion geben. Ein äußerst wichtiger Tatort, der in der brillanten Serie „Der Tatortreiniger“ aber nie gezeigt oder gar gereinigt wird, befindet sich im traditionsreichen, legendären Hamburger Karolinenviertel. Hier, fast unter dem Dach eines mächtigen, typisch hanseatischen Klinkerbaus, befindet sich Carsten Meyers Zone. Oder wie soll man diesen Ort sonst nennen? Studio? Atelier? Werkstatt? Klanglabor? Wie auch immer man seinen Puff bezeichnen will, es ist ein besonderer Platz.Alte Synthesizer und Orgeln wohin man blickt. Manche sehen aus wie schlechte Gebisse, mit abgebrochenen Tasten, aber sie röcheln noch. Da ist ein komplett mikrofoniertes Drumset, ein Bass, Gitarren. Kabelsalat schlängelt sich über mehrere Lagen orientaler Teppiche. An die Keyboards sind Stapel von Flohmarktplatten, Singles und LPs, gelehnt, die Bücherregale an den Wänden quellen über, viel Malerei, eigene und fremde Werke, bedeckt die Wände, in St. Petersburger Hängung. Betrachten kann man diese wundervolle Welt aus einem Korbsessel im Stil des Films „Emanuelle“.Hier entstehen quasi das ganze Jahr hindurch, und das schon seit 2011, all die musikalischen Skizzen, Vignetten, Themen, Grooves und Fantasias, die dann irgendwann zu den ausformulierten, musikalischen Stimmungsbildern werden, die im „Tatortreiniger“ zu hören sind. Die ihren Teil dazu beitragen, dass „Der Tatortreiniger“ die wahrscheinlich beste deutsche Fernsehserie der Welt ist - mit Sicherheit, was die Musik betrifft.Es war eine so naheliegende wie zauberhafte Idee, daraus endlich eine Auswahl zusammenzustellen und sie in einer schönen, von Meyer selbst gestalteten Hülle und auf seinem eigenen Label, Asexy, zu veröffentlichen. Die Songs präsentieren sich nun fast ähnlich einem Mixtape, nur halt nicht gemixt, sondern wie früher, ein Song nach dem anderen. Carsten Meyer verkörpert in diesem Fall jede Band. Man kann damit z.B. ins Strandbad gehen oder allein in den Park. Im Verlauf der 20 Stücke hört man eine Menge ganz unterschiedlicher Musiken, aus ganz verschiedenen Pop-Epochen, alle wie aus dem Ärmel geschüttelt. Was für eine magische Teppichreise! Was für ein unterhaltsames Spektakel!Nach der flotten Erkennungsmelodie im Stile einer Sixties-Serie wird es zunächst quasi schwarzweiß: melodramatische Spinett-Barock-Pop, inspiriert vom französischen Film ca. 1965-68, von Komponisten wie Francois De Roubaix und natürlich auch, klar, Henry Mancini.

Produced by the late, great Richard Evans who worked with the very best in the business, from Gene Chandler and Marlena Shaw, to Ramsey Lewis and Ahmad Jamal, it’s supremely arranged, blending a Bossa Nova beat and trumpet trills with Linda’s distinctly New York authenticity that comes through in the vocals. Like a trip to the blissful beaches of Rio whilst bringing a touch of the New York disco glam along for the ride. Exotic yet familiar, all in the same breath.On the flip, ‘City Living’, a straight up New York disco killer - oozing with funk, dripping in brass blasts, off beat hats and spruced up synths, it’s a primetime ode to the hustle and bustle of the city. Williams’ glorious tones, assisted by a majestic troupe of backing singers, glisten alongside the classy drumming and polished bass badness that lays behind it.

Hot-on-the-heels of their performance on BBC 6 Music, for Gilles Peterson's ‘UK Jazz Special’, at the hallowed Maida Vale studios (alongside Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon-Jones and Fatima), Ishmael Ensemble bring their Bristol-inspired ‘Severn Songs’ project to a triumphant finale. ‘Severn Songs 3’ pays homage the mighty river itself, in both title and mood. Field recordings from the banks of another iconic river - the Ganges - made by keyboardist and co-writer Jake Spurgeon meander in and out of focus, whilst celestial percussion ushers in the full-bodied tone of celebrated jazz trumpeter Yazz Ahmed's horn. The track climaxes in true Ishmaelian fashion with a whirlwind of pulsating synthesizers, crashing drums and hypnotic brass flurries, before easing back into the dulcet rhythm of oars lapping through water.On the flip, a reprise takes the listener on a much gentler ride. However, the tension and dynamics of this twin version are still very much apparent. Throughout the release, an array of new instruments open up in Cunningham's armoury; most notably bass clarinet, alto-flute and the sarod – leaving the listener just a few strings shy of a full orchestral experience.As a whole, the ‘Severn Songs’ project has seen Cunningham develop an already diverse palette into something more focused. Tiptoeing between the current British jazz boom and Bristol's rich musical ancestry, the group have found a truly unique and refreshing voice. ‘Severn Songs 3’ follows media praise, radio airplay and DJ support for the first two 7”s in the series, from the likes of Dan Snaith (Caribou), Gilles Peterson, Tom Ravenscroft, DJ Mag, Complex, Self-Titled, The Vinyl Factory and XLR8R. Prior to that, 2017 saw Ishmael Ensemble’s first EP ‘Songs for Knotty’ released on Banoffee Pies, followed by an official remix of Carl Craig’s ‘The Melody’ for Infiné. With rumours of an album ‘round the corner, a busy touring schedule and continued support from international tastemakers, 2019 is shaping up to be an ascendant year for this talented producer and his Bristolian troupe.

Senegalese kora master Sourakata Koite began music from pretty much day one. "All the Koite are musicians!," he says. Indeed he is a member of a family of djeli (or griot in french), the hereditary caste of musician-storyteller-historians in West Africa. After moving to Paris in the late 70s he began to play in different bands and for musicians like Manu Dibango, Toure Kounda, Mangala, Mah Damba and more. During a festival in Holland, a music producer form Plexus Records heard him and asked to make a recording. In 1984 in an old chicken coop near Delft, Koite recorded the entire album in one take, including overdubs. The rich sonics and deep sound beautifully presents Koite's virtuosic and entrancing renditions of traditional and original tunes. With the reissue of en Hollande, Awesome TapesFrom Africa continues its mission of bringing tapes posted on the ATFA website over the years, including this one, to music fans all over the world.

Nigerian composer Hama presents a groundbreaking album of traditional electronic desert folk songs, hovering somewhere between early 90s techno and synthwave. Nomadic herding ballads, ancient caravan songs, and ceremonial wedding chants are all re-imagined intopieces seemingly lifted from a Saharan 1980s sci-fi soundtrack or score to a Tuareg video game. With a deep love and respect, Hama effortlessly takes back and re-appropriates fourth-world ethnoambient music.

A new Sun Ra album touches ground in the earthly bins, 50 years after its creation!Sun Ra is still trying to get our attention 50 years after dispatching this transmission. Humanity?s path since then makes his message even more urgent today. Years after Herman Poole ?LeSony?r Ra? Blount ?left the planet? he's still trying to reach us, to wake us up and to change our destiny.Sun Ra and the Arkestra weren?t a traditional studio band, and every star in the vast galaxy of their discography reflects this. The origins of these records can be hard to pinpoint at times, but when it comes to Thunder Of The Gods, it?s a bit easier. ?Calling Planet Earth ? We?ll Wait For You? was discovered on tapes from Ra?s, Universe In Blue, believed to be recorded in ?71. The raucous title track and ?Moonshots Across the Sky? are unearthed from the ?66 Strange Strings sessions. Modern Harmonic has once again paired Ra?s sonic art with the visual art of ?The Father of Modern Space Art,? Chesley Bonestell, whose 1952 work ?Formation of the Earth?s Continents? spralls across the front and back covers.Thanks to Modern Harmonic, in partnership with Sun Ra LLC, soon you will be holding an album of unreleased Sun Ra music 50 years after it was recorded! That this music survived to reach our ears after all of this time is quite a miraculous gift. It sounds as though it could have come from either the ancient past or the distant future, yet most perfectly, it?s the music of right now.? ? Christopher Eddy (Sun Ra Arkive)

Born in 1941, Rob Franken played in more than just Dutch jazz-circles. People who worked with him describe him as a slightly introvert, but purely musical sorcerer. He had great influence on the people he worked with, not only the younger, but also the elder, like Toots Thielemans for instance, with whom he toured Europe for several years. Rob Franken liked to experiment with new instruments, and was the first person in Holland who made good use of the electric Fender Rhodes piano. Sadly, he died too young, at the age of 42.

Ulysses Crockett studied classical piano from 6 to 14 years old, adding alto saxophone and flute at 16 years old while attending Oakland California's McClymonds High graduating in 1956 as student body president and Valedictorian entering Stanford University in the fall of 1956.During the Lawrence Ferlinghetti Bay area beatnik era (circa 1957-1960), Ulysses' group was known as The Latin Jazz Quintet which included an early female bongo drummer named Joyce Zavaleta. Joyce had an extensive vinyl LP collection of afro-cuban records including compositions and performances of legendary bassist Israel 'Cachao' López and international known singer Celia Cruz. Joyce met U.C. Berkeley Student John Miller and taught him the Cuban piano styles. The regular members of the Afro-Blue Persuasion band consisted of John Miller - piano, Harald Haynes - congas, Robert Belinksy - drums, Ulysses Crockett - vibraphone, and Robert Bing Nathan - upright contrabass.At nineteen years old each, bassist Paul Jackson (who appears with genius composer, performer and pianist Herbie Hancock) and tenor flautist Robert Harvey were both serving in the U.S. Army station located in the San Francisco base known as the Presidio. On weekends, both Paul and Robert would sit in with the Afro-Blue Persuasion band."Live at Haight Levels" is the one and only recorded live performance by the Afro-Blue Persuasion. Finally, the songs are going to see the light of the day after 52 years! This is afro-cuban jazz at its very best! A stunning treasure rarely to be found - unless it's on Mo-Jazz!

Volume 9 of Mukatsuku Afro series kicks off with 'M'Ongele M'Am' from Cameroon artist Eko Roosevelt Louis taken from his early 1980's self-titled album and licenced for this 45 from Nubiphone & Africa Seven. The track was one of the highlights of the 2017 Pop Makossa compilation for Analagog Africa and it's the first time ever on a single in its own right.Driving brass funk fuelled afro disco does not really get much better than this. On the flipside Georges Ouedraogo from Burkina Faso gives us us the dance floor bomb ''Deni'' taken from his 1978 long player ''Gnanfou Gnanfou'' also licenced from Africa Seven and also the first time ever on a single. Punchy brass offset by those hipnotic vocals and funky wah-wah guitar has a deserved place on the flip. Strictly no repress. Essential 45 for the dancefloor !

Brooklyn's Breakdown Brass are made up of some of the hottest musicians in the NY area. Their cover of Dr. Dre's "Next Episode" is a monster that makes dancefloors go bonkers. Supported by a who’s who of DJs record is a masterful mix of Afro‐funk meets Balkan brass, and with a dash of hip‐hop simmering in the flow. The B‐side "Monmouth" is a driving original with razor sharp horns and a rumbling sousaphone bassline. Guaranteed to get bodies moving and to get dancefloors sweaty, consider this 45 to be fresh ammunition for your record box. Originally issued on Kept Records in 2015, the run quickly sold out and became an instant crate digger classic that now regularly re-sells for upwards of three figures if you are lucky to find someone willing to part ways with it.

Orgone is one of the most exciting bands in the new generation of funk bands; led by the powerhouse vocals of Adryon de León, Orgone recalls such legendary groups as Rufus and Sly & The Family Stone at their best. Their new album Reasons illuminates a band hitting its stride, capturing the raw power and refined sensibilities that defines Orgone.From the a cappella opening of “All Good Things” to the dance floor filler “Easy Love,” Reasons packs a punch. Vocal harmonies channeling late 70s Fleetwood Mac to synth lines evoking Bernie Worrell's involvement in the Talking Heads, 'Reasons' brings in a new set of influences on ORGONE's 10th studio album while maintaining their classic analog sound.De León is front and center on Reasons, and she does not disappoint evoking the deep soulfulness of Chaka Khan and the bedroom sweetness of Minnie Ripperton. Her versatile vocal performance firmly places her in the top echelon of soul singers today.Reasons is another solid step in a long and storied career. Orgone’s accolades are too long to list in entirety. The well-traveled band has released albums on Ubiquity, Shanachie, and Colemine Records and served as the studio band on hits like Alicia Key’s “Teenage Love Affair” and Cee Lo Green’s Grammy-winning “Fool For You.”
