Ten years after our initial survey of Afro-Latin accented rhythm &
blues from the mid-century, Jazzman proudly presents a fourth
installment, packed with as many musical surprises as the first. With
music plucked from an era spanning the late 1940s into the early 60s,
Jukebox Mambo IV highlights yet again the unparalleled musical
creativity of the post war era, and shows how the infusion of afro-latin
rhythms was key to these revolutions.
Lovingly and painstakingly researched and curated, the album boasts 23
tracks, many previously uncompiled, touching on jazz, blues, doo wop,
calypso, rock & roll, gospel and more. Featuring individual track
notes for every song along with some never seen before photographs of
the artists, Jukebox Mambo Vol IV maintains the same high production
values of each previous volume, and indeed the wider Jazzman catalogue.
Liner notes reference the New Orleans Funk series as well as Saturday Night Fish Fry (New Orleans Funk And Soul) and New Orleans Soul (The Original Sound Of New Orleans Soul 1966-76), previously released on Soul Jazz Records.

Harmonien. Die Sweethearts schmücken unser Cover mit einem kürzlich

For Thee Sacred Souls, the first time is often the charm. The band’s
first club dates led to a record deal with the revered Daptone label;
their first singles racked up more than ten million streams in a year
and garnered attention from Billboard, Rolling Stone, and KCRW; and
their first fans included the likes of Gary Clark Jr., The Black Pumas,
Princess Nokia, and Timbaland. Now, the breakout San Diego trio is ready
to deliver yet another landmark first with the release of their
self-titled debut on Daptone Records. “Every step of the way has
just been so organic,” says drummer Alex Garcia. “Things just seem to
happen naturally when the three of us get together.”Indeed,
there’s something inevitable about the sound of Thee Sacred Souls, as if
Garcia and his bandmates—bassist Sal Samano and singer Josh Lane—have
been playing together for a lifetime already. Produced by Bosco Mann
(aka Daptone co-founder Gabriel Roth), Thee Sacred Souls is a warm and
textured record, mixing the easygoing grace of sweet ’60s soul with the
grit and groove of early ’70s R&B, and the performances are utterly
intoxicating, with Lane’s weightless vocals anchored by the rhythm
section’s deep pocket and infectious chemistry. Hints of
Chicano, Philly, Chicago, Memphis, and even Panama soul turn up here,
and while it’s tempting to toss around labels like “retro” with a
deliberately analog collection like this, there’s also something
distinctly modern about the band that defies easy categorization, a
rawness and a sincerity that transcends time and place.

A bag full of rare rhythm & blues, mod-jazz, soul, and mid 70s funk.
Side A starts with rhythm & blues and jazz from the 1960s. The first three tracks were pulled from hopelessly obscure 7" singles. Macy & Company are responsible for the first 'aha' moment. Their version of 'Sixteen Tons' would have certainly astounded even Tennessee Ernie Ford. A truly fantastic version indeed! 'Snatchin' It Back' completes the first side with a furious big band jazz cut.
Side B is all about mod-jazz. 'Undun' is just like 'Big Boy' a sure-shot for any dancefloor. Rare Groove DJs will have a lot of fun spinning these tunes in a club. Admittedly, the next one is a strange cut. 'See How You Are' was recorded on a whim when they two composers were spontaneously pulled into a studio. High time for 'aha' effect #2. Many bands have tried their hands on a cover version of the Lee Morgan jazz classic, one of them being Mr. Palumbo. Listen closely to Dianne Elliott's contribution as it is a highlight for sure despite the fact von Frau Elliott.
Side C begins with 'aha' effect #3 and a fantastic cover version of Gerald Wilson's 'Viva Tirado'. 'Blue Jamaica', is the second track on Movements 11 were a vibraphone is the lead instrument. 'Bawana Jinde' is a wild, wailing blast of percussive instrumental explosion while 'The Creeper' is the perfect choice to finish this side.
Side D is reserved for proper 1970s funk. The flip side of Reunion's sole 45rpm single was included on a previous Tramp compilation album. 'A Brighter Day' has not been compiled yet. 'Real Life', 'Syrene' and 'Breezy' are all prime examples how mid 70s funk has to sound . A dream for B-Boys and B-Girls.
Those of you who have been enjoying the detective work of the people behind the label over the past 18 years know that the Movements series can be easily considered as the flagship compilation series on Tramp. So, after having listened to the entire selection of this brand new volume we sincerely hope that we will have achieved our aim to surprise, delight, and enlighten you once again!
