various - feeling nice 3 (2lp gatefold/cd/digital)
   

friends and fans of tramp records in general, and of the feeling nice series specifically, will be feeling even nicer this time around with the release of this deep and soulful new collection: feeling nice volume 3.

t hese recordings have been painstakingly sought-out and unearthed from as far away as hawaii, canada, and jamaica (in addition to the usual texas, ohio, and georgia). this music has been carefully transferred (in some cases form the sole known copy) and remastered to the highest standards of audio quality. finally, through a determined and diligent research effort leading to interviews with the owners of the rights to the original masters, feeling nice volume 3's detailed liner notes offer you an enlightening window into the lives of the musicians, producers, and independent record labels responsible for some of the deepest music on the planet. all of this in addition to full color label scans and never before seen publicity photos.

trlp/cd-9045:
dokkerman & the turkeying fellaz - illegal move (lp/cd/digital)
   
formerly of the eastern bloc, the cultural and musical heritage of this part of europe is every bit as rich the likes of west africa and as such it is a melting pot bubbling with rhythms and influences. now imagine, if you will, some of this eastern european brew sprinkled with a little bit of afro spice and then blended with a massive dose of classic heavyweight stateside funk and you'll have some idea of what dokkerman & the turkeying fellaz (d&ttf) are all about.

in short, d&ttf breathe new life into vintage funk and trashy garage rock underpinning everything with afro-funk rhythms in a unique addition to the contemporary scene that's guaranteed to make you move. in fact it's so danceable it should be made illegal.

tr-9044:
lucky brown - mystery road (7x7" single box set/digital)
   

blazing horns in unison and a slightly awry choir come together, work in opposite directions, completing a true rhythmically woven carpet with the tight rhythm section's network: multi-layered, close-knitted and nearly impenetrable.

the eight japanese musicians led by masamichi ishikawa play more funk and jazz than the nigerian afrobeat originals fela kuti and tony allen did: a swift flute, a blazing trumpet playing and extensive solos from the very beginning. you've gotta love it!

trlp/cd-9042:
various - movements 7 (2lp gatefold/cd/digital)
   

there is no need to praise this selection of tracks. it is larger-than-life. and those who do not recognize the distinctiveness of it should better seek medical advice. the most astounding fact is certainly that 99% of the record buying public have never heard any of these tunes, most likely not even the artists. and we are not talking of people who solely listen to mainstream music. no, even music lovers who believe that they have a good portion of knowledge when it comes to jazz and soul music will be left speechless.

you can skip to any song on this album and you won't be disappointed. The only premise is that you are a fan of raw, earthy soul and jazz music. if this is the case then you can't go wrong. rene bailey, matilda haywood, lee mitchell, nu art quartet, to name a few. it is high time to introduce all these names to a broad audience and to prevent that they vanish into thin air. the movements series was coined to introduce music lovers to so far unheard musical treasures. tunes which only hardcore record collectors have had the privilege to enjoy it...until now.

trlp/cd-9041:
various - praise poems (2lp/cd/digital)
   

not only for don mccaslin's project warmth the time has come for representation and appreciation. all the songs on this disc are well worth to be discovered. no matter if you skip to jorge darden's jazzy-soulful "alone again" or to seeds of fulfillment's stunning "solemn solitude". each and every song is a masterpiece in its own right. funky soul music fans will be pleased to get a chance to listen to cookie thomas and bold breed, two cuts which are hard to find in its original format. rarity is one thing, quality is another. the songs to be found here are both rare and good. better yet, until now, all of these tracks had not yet been compiled.

after movements and feeling nice, two already well-established compilation series on tramp, praise poems could be the start of a new successful one. It was solely the title track which lead us to release this album. don't ask if there will be a volume 2. we don't know yet. what we do know is that if we ever come across a similar tour de force as don mccaslin's compostion, then there will certainly be one.
