Early '90s German deep funk pioneers The Poets of Rhythm just got anthologized!  These guys were very much responsible for the real funk revival of the mid to late 1990s and inspired important popular acts like Sharon Jones & Lee Fields and labels like Daptone and Truth & Soul.   So in addition to checking out some excellent and rare music from the Poets of Rhythm, let's hear some music from lost luminaries like Joseph Henry, The Soul Command and J.D. & The Evil Dynamite Band on defunct labels like Desco and Soul Fire, all of whom were integral in bringing deep funk back to the masses.   Stop by.

Been waiting for the new Ed Motta since its' delay in April...but it's in and ready and most importantly, it's killer!  Also got the latest from 180 Proof/Strata Records, this time a fuzzed out affair from the obscure Sam Sanders.  And still more goin' down:  a set for my pops (Bill Evans, natch) and Herb Geller jamming with some European electric groovers!  Let's do this.
