Killer work from the same sessions that gave the world Cannonball Adderley's classic Black Messiah album – live material from an extended stretch as the Troubadour club in LA – featuring a very righteous, freewheeling version of Cannonball's group! The lineup features some wonderful work on Fender Rhodes from George Duke – who brings a more soulful, spiritual current to the proceedings than Joe Zawinul did in earlier years – a really commanding presence that hints at his brewing solo fame, and which is a very welcome addition to the core lineup, which also includes Cannon on soprano and alto, and brother Nat on cornet!

“Funkbook a la Turc” project has a musical approach that aims to use Turkish themes and melodies along with the jazz harmonies and the improvisations over the forms of the tunes in the jazz funk style. After the early periods of jazz, especially during the Swing period and later, jazz musicians took popular tunes into their repertoire to play them with their own interpretation. They arranged, reharmonized and improvised over these tunes. Honeysuckle Rose, I Got Rhythm, Bye Bye Blackbird in the Swing era, All The Things You Are, My Old Flame in the Be-bop era, My Foolish Heart, My Funny Valentine in the Cool era and following periods are a few examples of popular tunes that the jazz musicians picked up from the popular music realm. These made part of the whole repertoire called Jazz Standards.

Light as a Feather is simply the first version, a little over half of what would become Azymuth's fine Outubro album. It opens with the weakest cut, the ten-plus minute faux disco "Jazz Carnival," with awful drum effects and popping, funky-yet cliched basslines by Alex Malheiros. After this there is much to like, however, in the breezy execution of the title track that is nearly as beautiful as Return to Forever's, and features a fine jazz-samba number that evokes both Walter Wanderley and Tom Jobim in Jose Roberto Bertrami's "Fly Over the Horizon," as well as a beautiful version of Toninho Horta's "Dona Olimpia."

British crossover jazz, funk, and pop outfit Shakatak are a sophisticated ensemble who have enjoyed a long career. With a sound steeped in contemporary jazz and R&B, they found success with both instrumental albums and pop vocal productions. Formed in London in 1980, Shakatak originally featured keyboardists Bill Sharpe and Nigel Wright, guitarist Keith Winter, bassist Steve Underwood, and drummer Roger Odell…

After giving Clarke's fans a taste of some live tapes of the School Days band on I Wanna Play for You, Epic waited until 1991 to put another batch of them out, well after it would have been commercially feasible to do so. But no matter, for this CD captures one of Clarke's best electric bands – maybe his best band, period – in a number of gigs in the U.S. and U.K., mixing up the jazz, funk, and rock into a high-energy, musically literate brew. A lot of this album recycles then-existing material, but the live conditions add flashes of spontaneity and sometimes considerable interest to jazz fans.

Long before the mid 80's when this album was recorded Stanley Clarke had more than proven himself as a major league musician in terms of not only his base playing but as a member of Return To Forever and his session work with members Flora Purim as well as his famous collaborations with George Duke. On this album he takes a break from the strong electro funk flavored Time Exposure to do something just a little different. True that modern style of production is still very much in play but with drummer Rayford Griffin and keboardists Sunnie Paxon and Duke alumni Robert Brookins he decided to work that style of groove into a far more pop/R&B oriented formula that while it took it's cues from the previous albums is far lighter on the instrumental fusion influences and stronger on the 80's techno-funk/pop/hip-hop end of things.

As Electronic Music knows no creative boundaries, Spiral Deluxe is clearly a profound and convincing example of what is possible in the times we live in today. Traditionally, they would be considered a musical quartet. Each of the four members contributing to make a special joint effort – the meeting of minds from different spectrums of the musical sphere, but if you move in closer to examine how each have modified the way they communicate in order to play with each other, its astonishing because it shows a entirely new platform on how a collaboration can be. Spiral Deluxe is a pure as it gets and is a longtime vision of their drummer/percussionist and Jeff Mills.

One more amazing chapter in the mighty development of drummer Chico Hamilton – a killer 70s session for Blue Note – and a record that goes way beyond his earlier experiments of the 50s, modal grooves of the 60s, and funk work for the Flying Dutchman label! The style here is fusion, but way fresher than the usual type – neither jamming rock-styled, nor mellow and smooth – and instead always tickled by Hamilton's sense of a unique rhythm, and his continued great ear for inventive use of reeds – in this case handled by Arthur Blythe on alto and Arnie Lawrence on soprano and tenor sax. The set's also got Steve Turre on bass and trombone, and both Barry Finnerty and Joe Beck on electric guitars – but the real genius is Chico himself, who handled arrangements and wrote most of the album's great tracks. Titles include the exotic number "Abdullah & Abraham" – plus "Andy's Walk", "Peregrinations", "It's About That Time", "Sweet Dreams", "On & Off", "Little Lisa", and "Space For Stacy".

"Love & Understanding" is the 7th studio album by the funk band Kool & the Gang, released in 1976. The album had mild success. Three tracks, "Hollywood Swinging", "Summer Madness" and "Universal Sound" were recorded live at the Rainbow Theatre in London, England. The song "Summer Madness" was used in the motion picture Rocky as radio background during a scene in Rocky's home. It is also featured in the soundtrack of the videogame Tony Hawk's Project 8, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and in a Nike commercial. "Hollywood Swinging" is featured in the soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

"Spirit of the Boogie" is the highly successful 6th studio album released in 1975 by Kool & the Gang. It can be seen as a follow-up to Wild and Peaceful (1973); The instrumental "Jungle Jazz" uses the same basic rhythm track heard in "Jungle Boogie", but lets the players improvise on their instruments (saxophone, trumpet and flute). References to earlier works can be noticed ("Ancestral Ceremony" contains the line: "making merry music…", which was the name of a song from their 1972 album, Good Times). "Spirit of the Boogie" features Donal Boyce, who was rapping on "Jungle Boogie". Some African influence can be felt, and the band even play in a West-Indian style on "Caribbean Festival", another instrumental track, with once more lots of room for improvisation.

"Light of Worlds" is the 5th studio album, and 7th album of new material by the American R&B group Kool & the Gang. Released in 1974, it was later remastered by Polygram and was a second success for the band, reaching #16 in the R&B Charts and #63 in the Pop Charts. It was a landmark in the funk/jazz fusion genre of the 1970s. "Light of Worlds" is regarded as Kool & the Gang's most spiritual and sophisticated work, produced in the wake of the success of their previous album, Wild and Peaceful. While it was their seventh album of original material, the band considered Light of the Worlds their ninth LP (counting two compilations), and therefore consciously chose nine songs for the album to represent the nine planets in the solar system. The album contains rock-inspired funk set to jazz-informed playing with afrobeat influences and a tinge of analogue synthesizing.

Orkestra Eustoria sounds like an exotic jazz ensemble based in a far away land–there's something about the "eu" and the "k" that reminds me of the Basque Country–but this space-age modern fusion ensemble is based in Astoria, Queens. Saxophonist Peter Sparacino, the leader of the Orkestra, has adopted this esoteric moniker in honor of Astoria, which is home to a very diverse population. That theme carries over into the music, of course, with its melding of styles and influences from all over the planet. Sparacino grabbed a few of his friends, musicians who represented "some of the most innovative and internationally recognized tour musicians working today," and started rehearsing with them extensively so that he could "solve his own musical shortcomings."
