Gettin' into it Wednesday at noon at the Groove.  Let's delve deeper into DeRobert & The Half-Truths, checking out his new one along with other nuggets from the GED Soul label.  Also, music from the surprisingly deep well of Finnish jazz, this time from the excellently named Mighty Mighty...plus a coupla stone groovers from Monk Higgins!

Good stuff hitting the turntables this week at the Groove.   Nashville soul man DeRobert Adams just dropped his 2nd full length with his crack band, The Half-Truths.  Sweet!  Meanwhile, on the other side of the soul spectrum, Ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatke just released a new one with a new incarnation of his band, Steps Ahead. Killer! Plus, the usual funkiness will ensue, including more from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and tributes to two jazz legends whose passing in late December slipped under the radar!
