From Wikipedia :

Curtis Lee Mayfield (June 3, 1942 – December 26, 1999) was an American  soul, rhythm and blues, and funk singer, songwriter, and record producer best known for his anthemic music with The
Impressions and composing the soundtrack to the blaxploitation film Super Fly. From these works and others, he is highly regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious
African-American music.[1][2]  He was also a multi-instrumentalist who played the guitar, bass, piano, saxophone, and drums.

Curtis Mayfield, né le (3 juin 1942 à Chicago et mort le 26 décembre 1999, était un chanteur, auteur et compositeur de soul, de funk, de rhythm and blues, principalement connu pour la bande
originale du film de blaxploitation Superfly.

Il fait tout d’abord partie du groupe The Impressions puis il se lance avec succès dans une carrière solo. Il devient probablement le premier de la nouvelle vague de chanteurs afro-américains à
introduire des commentaires à caractère social dans ses chansons. Cette musique engagée devient très populaire pendant cette période de difficultés sociales des années 1960 et 1970.

Yuri Honing and Floris – Phase Five

Origine du Groupe : Nederland

Style : New Jazz

Sortie : 2009

Meest opvallende aan het nieuwste project van Yuri Honing is de wijze van opname. Producent Floris Klinkert pikte voor hem inspirerende elementen uit het oeuvre van de saxofonist waarover nieuwe
solo’s over werden geblazen. Na wederom wat geknip en geplak ging Floris aan de slag met Nederlandse zangers, creëerde een nieuwe basis en het was vervolgens aan Honing om voor de laatste keer
saxpartijen aan toe te voegen. Resultaat is een gevarieerde frisse plaat met enkele tracks die zomaar uitgebracht kunnen worden op single.

De pop ontstaat niet alleen door de vocale inbreng van onder andere Janne Schra (Room Eleven), Sarah Bettens (K’s Choice) en Lilian Vieira (Zuco 103). Ook de sfeer, eenvoudige patronen en
voornamelijk de glasheldere productie maken het album bijzonder strak. Met een randje gelukkig. Vuige beats in onder andere ‘Wasted’ (Bettens) en ‘Remember’ (Vieira) komen heerlijk tot
uitdrukking. Fijne liedjes met een hoog D.O.X. Records gehalte zoals ‘Headringer’s Ball’ (Leine) zijn vrolijk en ongecompliceerd.

Honing zelf blijft opvallend op de achtergrond. Een wat kitchy solo’tje of intermezzo hier en daar; soms een dienende rol bij vocalen. Helemaal geen gek gevolg als je kijkt naar het proces van
opnames. ‘Phase Five’ is een resultaat van eerdere praktijken van de actieve saxofonist. Waaruit kan worden geconcludeerd dat het idioom en de ideëen van Honing bijzonder redbaar zijn.



Tracklist :

1. Fingers Crossed

2. Swallow

3. Wasted

4. Interlude 1

5. Headringer’s Ball

6. Spin and Return

7. The Girl

The Haggis Horns – Keep On Movin’

Origine du Groupe : U.K

Style : Funk , Soul

Sortie : 2010

// <![CDATA[ aR_BgColor=""; aR_FgColor=""; aR_url=location.href; aR_title=document.title; aR_StarType ='3';document.write('

As we’re on a roll call, not only have the Haggis Horns worked with these chart toppers but also some FLY favourites like Nightmare On Wax, Roots Manuva, Mark Ronson and The Cinematic Orchestra
and released their debut album, Hot Damn!  in 2006 when they were well on their way as the British Dap-Kings.

All was going so well and then founder member and Corinne Bailey-Rae’s husband, the band’s saxophonist Jason Rae tragically died passed away 2008. So, second guessing, this album is formulated on
the theme of album title, Keep On Movin’.

Teaming up with Nia Saw on vocals (who has performed around the world with Zap Mama and DJs alongside funk, soul, jazz, northern soul and mate of Paul Weller and legend Keb Darge), the 10 piece
band is as horny as funk.

Original from Scotland (hence the name) Malcolm Strachan (trumpet), Atholl Ransome (tenor saxophone and flute) and Ben Barker (guitar) form the core of the band that’s now has expanded to include
two more horns (Jim Correy and Rob Mitchell) and Morgan Pugh (bass), Luke Flowers (drums), Sam Bell (percussion) and Joe Tatton (keyboards, guitar)

Whilst this album is coming out on First Word (can you believe Jonny Trunk hadn’t hard of them? This is catalogue number FW55 after all!), the groove is real Freestyle Records, Mr. Finewine and
Keb Darge so to speak.

Kicking off with the opening track, ‘Way Of The Haggis’, the Haggis Horns are in full front line blowing action (with funky guitar and strings!). This instrumental sets a high standard but
certainly gets us in the groove.

As long time lovers of Alice Russell, Nia certainly has the same funky soul when she joins in on tracks ‘Pass It On’, ‘On The Edge’ and the title track ‘Movin’ On’.

She also features on ‘Too Blind’ and ‘The Cockroach Grind’ which may remind those with good memories of the groove of Scotland’s Average White Band whose’s ‘Pick Up The Pieces’ was so influential
back in the day. The Haggis Horns take on this period/classic/style is ‘Putting On The Beef’. Sounds like a euphemism I know, but this is meaty funky soul jazz and comes into the Jazz Chronicles
category of “future classics”.

‘Love Gets You High’ probably even more so as the Donald Byrd/Frizzell Brothers influence is all too clear to hear. For rare soul 45 b-sides from New Jersey/West Orange, check out ‘The Snarf
Dance’ (what’s Snarf?) and the instrumental ‘The Jerk’.

Whilst label mates The Simonsound are completely different to The Haggis Horns, there is a lineage from funk to soul to hip hop, breaks and beyond.

Ending on a track called ‘Keep On Dancing’, dancing is definitely what you’ll want to do when you’re listening to this album as The Haggis Horns have some of the hardest funk, soul and jazz
around town – keep on movin’ people to the sound of The Haggis Horns.
