In the inner booklet of the 14 LP's box "The Philadelphia Story" by Street Sounds on wich appears "Soncere (The Infinite Hour Glass)" says that the father of Michael pedicin Jnr. had a hit with "Take A Hand" in the 50's. "Soncere" is, IMHO, one of the best jazz - fusion tracks on the entire PIR catalogue.

Thanks, sounded good, strangely enough I don't think I'd ever had a copy of that LP, got one now though off a mate.

I expect some of you will have seen this LP in the 80's and 90's and not paid any attention to it, after all let's be honest the artwork is hardly eye catching. Using the artist name Brand New Funk, this is Wood Brass & Steel/The Sugarhill label band, thus Doug Wimbish on bass [not drums as wrongly stated on the sleeve]. "Tastee" is exactly as the title suggests and is a monumental JF toe tapper. One other fierce track on the LP, the vocal cut "Classic Funk" which is also as suggested but beware, starts loud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBSG--xiLHs

From one of my all time jazz-funk / fusion albums, Richard Tee's "Natural Ingredients" (there are some very good instrumentals as "Us" and "Now" but this one is very funny because the "macarronic" laughs at the intro):

Bound to be on here but I'm not going to trawl through, always worth hearing again anyway, something to blow the cobwebs away. Dancefloor heaven, well it was when it came out, probably dancefloor A & E now!

I have some jazz and jazz funk artists all time favorites of mine like Deodato, Airto Moreira and his wife Flora Purim, Artur Verocai… and of course Azymuth (I have a double CD compilation and a vynil, "Tightropewalker" from wich is this track, my favorite "Tu mi delirio"… is a mid tempo, there's some other track with more bpm's as "Samba da barra", but this one is so mellow…):

And here's another jazz funk mid tempo one by Azymuth on wich, IMHO, we can appreciate like in no one other the unique style by Ivan "Mamao" Conti on drums (If I well remember, sadly he dead some years ago). I likes a lot this track since appears in a 2 x CD compilation by UK Union Square called "Latin Jazz. The essential album" (where appears from Marcos Valle to Chichi Peralta passing trough Azymuth or Tito Puente) in 2002:

My other half who was mad on jazz funk in the 70s and still is, was telling me about some conference league level pub dj in Kent who always started his set with this one. 😂Excellent!

Rinder & Lewis are a very good tandem! despite the fact they are better known for the Le Pamplemouse and El Coco disco projects.

The one by Dr. Lonnie Smith posted by Soul Hippy made me remember on one of my favorite tracks on the album "Tremendao" by Eumir Deodato e Os Cathedraticos (I have also another from this Deodato's era: "Impulso!"). On the combo we can hear Walter Rosa and Raul de Souza in the horn section!

I might be pushing it but just pulled Maze out and wanted to post something.

Frankie Beverly is so cool man. Maybe I’m wrong but he’s so under stated and maybe under appreciated amongst the pantheon of soul gurus. Mans amazing.

neiljon31, This was in a pub on a weekday on the outskirts of Maidstone in the 70s. There's something charming and ridiculous about starting your set in that context in such a grandiose fashion that is just brilliant. He was a good dj though, she says.

Do we expand this? I know many have broad taste on here. Just thought I'd float this, what do you think or do we need a new thread?

So much wonderful music with no home currently, for example
