Buddy Terry – Awareness (Gatefold/LP+MP3)
Friday, August 18th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Buddy Terry – Awareness (Gatefold/LP+MP3)

Image: 1610854 Following the highly-acclaimed release of FEELING GOOD and INNER PEACE compilations, WEWANTSOUNDS is delighted to announce the reissue of two superb classic albums in our new MAINSTREAM RECORDS ORIGINAL CLASSICS series. The releases will be crammed with bonus material. WEWANTSOUNDS has gone back to the original negative to reconstruct the original artworks and will add many jaw dropping never-seen photo sessions and CD Bonus material with new liner notes. LPs will be released in glorious gatefold sleeves.

Awareness is Buddy Terry’s first album for Mainstream Records out of the three he recorded for Bob Shad’s label. This is pure undiluted spiritual jazz both deep and funky. Prior to that Terry had recorded a couple of soul jazz albums for Prestige Record, “Electric Soul” in 1967 and “Natural Soul” in 1968. He then went under the radar until the recording of this album, an undisputed buried treasure Wewantsounds is delighted to reissue.

1971 saw him picked up by the ever active Bob Shad who had just decided to produce a new crop of young jazzmen in tune with the sonic revolution of the time with John coltrane’s Eastern influences and Miles Davis’ experiments drawned from the music Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone.

Awareness is a pure result of this incredible blend which saw labels like Black Jazz or Strata East transform jazz into a hip and cool genre adorned by the Woodstock generation. Featuring a glittering line up composed of Strata East co-founder Stanley Cowell on piano and Rhodes, Cecil Bridgewater on Trumpet, Buster Williams and Victor Gaskin on bass, Roland Prince on guitar, Mickey Roker on drums and a young Mtume on percussion.

Together they play a superb mix of deep and funky jazz in the best tradition of the genre. Both hypnotic (Kamili) and funky (check Cowell signature tune Abscretions), the album is a pure delight graced by Shad’s tight production values. It will ravish all lovers of early 70s spiritual jazz.

Buddy Terry recorded another two great albums for Mainstream and played on Art Blakey superb Child’s Dance from 1972 gracing the record with his wonderful soprano sax playing. A great player worth (re)discovering. This release will be augmented by never-seen session photos by Raymond Ross as two CD bonuses in the form of two single versions of “Babylon” and “Stealin’ Gold” well as new liner notes by French journalist Jacques Denis (Liberation/Superfly)

LPs will be released in glorious gatefold sleeves.

Recorded in 1971, this beautiful Harold Land record produced by Bob Shad, is nothing but a Harold Land – Bobby Hutcherson Quintet album in disguise. The quintet recorded a handful of marvelous albums between 1967 and 1971 mainly under the Bobby Hutcherson name on Blue Note but they recorded one album on Chess and two for Mainstream. A New Shade of Blue recorded in Los Angeles where the quintet was based is one of their best albums and has never been reissued before except in Japan.

Featuring a superb line up comprising Buster Williams on Bass and Billy Hart on Drums – the rhythm section of Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi Sextet – the session is augmented by Bill Henderson on Piano and Fender Rhodes and Mtume on percussion.

Together they create a superb soundscape featuring the quintet’s trademark sound, both spiritual and serene, with Land’s unmistakable sax playing and Bobby Hutcherson modal touch. The highlight of the album is the long hypnotic track “Mtume”, a deep, slow burner displaying the group’s fantastic interplay. For the first time ever the album will be reunited with the beautiful 8 min outtake “Dark Mood” which was briefly issued in 1974 on a Mainstream compilation.

The release will also be crammed with unissued session photo taken by LA photographer Dick Sanders and will feature new liner notes by radio DJ and renowned digger Sam Barbatano (Sunday Jazz, KTRU Houston)

Various – Inner Peace (Rare Spiritual Funk & Jazz Gems)
Friday, June 30th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Inner Peace (Rare Spiritual Funk & Jazz Gems)

Image: 1609761 WEWANTSOUNDS are back with a superb selection of Spiritual Jazz and Funk grooves from legendary Producer BOB SHAD’s Mainstream Records catalogue. Many sought-after tracks here have never been reissued and will delight all the crate diggers worldwide.

Bob Shad was one of the greatest music producers of the 20th century, having worked with all the music giants you can think of, from Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie to Sarah Vaughan, Lightnin’ Hopkins, The Platters and Janis Joplin to name just a few. “Bobby Shad was a legend in our family” says his grandson Judd Apatow who, together with his sister Mia, still looks after Shad’s back catalogue, Mainstream Records.
Like his peers, jazz producers Creed Taylor and Bob Thiele, Shad went independent in the 60s and by the early 70s, he was producing a string of superb albums mixing Spiritual Jazz with Funk and Soul. These albums are now being rediscovered by new generation of Soul and Jazz lovers hooked on the music of Kamasi Washington and Shabaka Hutchings.
Recorded between 1971 and 73,  the Fender-Rhodes-drenched tracks on INNER PEACE showcase Shad’s unique Deep Jazz sound. They feature such revered musicians as Harold Land, Roy Haynes and Frank Foster, together with a younger generation of talented musicians led by Buddy Terry, Dave Hubbard and LaMont Johnson.
Here they are accompanied by the cream of 70s jazz session musicians including Bernard Purdie, Buster Williams, Eddie Henderson, Mtume, Stanley Clarke, and Cecil Bridgewater.
The Mainstream catalogue has been sampled by a long list of revered DJs and Hip Hop producers over the years. Roy Haynes’ ‘Senyah’ was sampled by De La Soul on ‘Pony Ride’ and Shelly Manne’s short outro, ‘Infinity’ forms the unmissable backbone of Jeru The Damaja’s all-time Hip Hop classic, ‘Come Clean’. A fitting tribute to the supreme sound of producer Bob Shad.
Wewantsounds will start a reissue program of original Mainstream albums with bonus material and rare photos from the vaults. Look out for more

From working with music Titans such as Charlie Parker and Lightnin’ Hopkins in the 40s, founding the EmArcy jazz label in the 50s and discovering Janis Joplin in the 60s, Bob Shad has had an incredible influence. This handpicked selection gives you a little taster for the diversity of Bob Shad’s Sound from the early 70s when he turned to Deep and soulful Jazz alongside labels like Flying Dutchman and Strata East. Drenched in modal Fender Rhodes keys, spiritual sax and flute solos, deep percussions and funky beats, these albums have slowly been rediscovered by a new generation of DJs, hip hop producers and vinyl junkies all around the world.

From Afrique’s cult classic “House of the Rising Funk” and its funky wah wah frenzy to Hadley Caliman’s deep jazz Flute ode, From one of Clark Terry’s famous Mumbles (Shad produced the original with Oscar Peterson) to Jack Wilkins’ “Red Clay” sampled by both A Tribe Called Quest and Chance the Rapper. A Soul Music lover, Shad also excelled in soul divas and produced Ellerine Harding, Maxine Weldon and of course the mighty Alice Clark, whose original album on Mainstream exchanges hands for around 500$ these days.

To close the compilation in style, Carmen McRae, one of Shad’s long time collaborators, gives a soulful, conga-led version of the classic Feelin’ Good a song made famous by Nina Simone.

Disco is back! From Paris to Melbourne, Berlin or Athens, a new blend of 70s inspired disco sound is currently taking the dancefloors by storm with artists like Monika, L’Impératrice or LeonxLeon, creating a stir on the international scene. Paying their dues to the pure form of Disco, these new artists, far from mimicking the […]

Saturday, May 7th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Disco 2.0

Image: 1604050 Disco ist zurück. Hier kommt eine handverlesene Auswahl der heißesten neuen Sounds. Wir reden hier über die reine, ungemischte Form des Disco, die Mitte der 70er Jahre, aus der Quelle einer Hand voll New Yorker Underground Clubs entsprungen, die Szene anführte und ihren Weg zum Studio 54 oder Le Palace machte. Die Kunstfertigkeit legendärer DJs und Produzenten wie David Mancuso, Nicky Siano, Larry Levan, Nile Rodgers oder Giorgio Moroder hat den Dancefloor für immer verändert, bevor Disco seinen Ausverkauf erlebte und in der Disco Demolition Night im Chicagoer Stadion endete! Dann verschwand er für lange Zeit. Aber es war zu spät. Die Katze war aus dem Sack, und die Disco-Gesänge hatten bereits die Musikwelt verändert. Disco durchdrang viele Stile – sogar Punk – und begründete House und dessen Sub-Genres. Nun erhebt sich Disco erneut aus seiner Asche, und junge Künstler produzieren eine frische Version von disco-inspirierter Musik in Berlin, Paris, Melbourne und Athen. Diese ist weder eine Kopie des vergangenen Ruhms, noch gleichzustellen mit dem beliebten Nu-Disco Genre, das vor allem in Nord-Europa große Erfolge verzeichnet. Die WEWANTSOUNDS Crew hat sorgsam die Schätze der neuen Disco-Welle selektiert und mit einem seltenen Instrumental aus dem Jahr 1976 von Sounds of Inner City (veröffentlicht auf dem Kultlabel West End Records und gemixt vom legendären Tom Moulton) einen kleinen Fingerzeig in Richtung Glanzzeit des Disko zu den coolsten Stücken hinzugefügt. Diese geschmackvolle Auswahl gibt einen frischen Einblick in die Wiedergeburt des Disco mit einer gehörigen Portion Sinnlichkeit, Rhythmus und unermüdliches Verlangen nach Liebe…. Das ist Disco 2.0!

Saturday, May 7th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Disco 2.0 (2LP+MP3)

Image: 1604051 Disco is back! From Paris to Melbourne, Berlin or Athens, a new blend of 70s inspired disco sound is currently taking the dancefloors by storm with artists like Monika, L’Impératrice or LeonxLeon, creating a stir on the international scene. Paying their dues to the pure form of Disco, these new artists, far from mimicking the clichés, are adding an unmistakable millennium twist to the genre. This is Disco 2.0

It’s all down to a few men in New York with a love for Philly Soul and hypnotic grooves. In the early 70s they defined the club culture from scratch: DJs David Mancuso, Nicky Siano, Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles, Label bosses Mel Sheren and Neil Bogart, remixer extraordinaire Tom Moulton were instrumental in shaping a new sound that changed music forever and paved the way for house music and its many sub-genres decades later.

Today, a new scene is shaping up, updating the classic sound of Disco. Young artists like Marvin & Guy in Italy, L’Imperatrice and LeonxLeon in France, or Monika in Athens and the US are producing a fresh blend of Disco-inspired music which is neither a copy of the past glory, nor totally in line of the popular Nu-Disco genre that has flourished primarily in Northern Europe.

The WEWANTSOUNDS crew has carefully selected here the cream of this new Disco wave with the coolest tracks around and added a little nod to the heydays in the form of a rare 1976 instrumental by Sounds of Inner City from the cult West End Records label and mixed by the legendary Tom Moulton.

This tasteful selection will give you a fresh insight into the Disco rebirth, pouring into the mix a huge dose of sensuality, rhythms and an irresistible craving for love… That’s Disco 2.0!

Friday, April 1st, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Sunday Mixtape (2LP+MP3)

Image: 1602531 Hunting down the coolest sounds around the globe, the wewantsounds crew have curated another special mix for your Lazy Sundays. Dishing out a tasteful mix of new tracks from under the radar, this selection features a string of sunny pop, indie grooves, chilled electro and relaxed disco, the whole seasoned with a couple of leftfield cult classics and classy jazz tracks for good measure. Sunday Mixtape is the perfect sonic brew that will bring you back to life after a long night or hard partying.
Many of the tracks in this selection have barely been heard outside of the underground circles and feature young artists who have just sprung out to life with the exception of UK soul diva ALA.Ni and the recent success of her melancholic jazzy album and L’Impératrice, the next disco big thing out of France, whose buzz is getting louder.
Unveiling these fresh tunes, Parisian master curator Olivier Pellerin has cast a colourful and laid-back feel over the 16 tracks assembled for this mixtape. Here you’ll find new French nouvelle vague singer Laure Briard, US groovy duet Bones & Beeker, minimal house producers Roscius and Shigeto as well as Domenique Dumont with a buzzing balearic beat.
Sunday Mixtape also features a few cult classics such as Mock & Toof’s “Farewell to Wendo”, Louie Austen’s “Hoping” and Justine & The Victorian Punks’ “Still You”, a sought after NY avant disco 1979 tune led by French expat fashionista Justine and saxophonist (and frequent Arthur Russell collaborator) Peter Gordon.
This relaxed trip ends with two jazz gems by Billie Holiday and Bob McFadden putting the final note to a softly reinvigorating and sun-drenched selection. Sunday Mixtape will make you wish the day never ends.
