WAR – Deliver The World

Orgasmic, soulful and yet rough album by the legendary WAR band. Grooves vary from song to song, sometimes you feel the blues, jazz, or very often funk vibe, all permeated with extended jams and beautiful solos. But, thinking of it as a whole, it’s

Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson – Bridges

Six years after Pieces of a Man release, which you had an opportunity to hear in one of my previous posts, Heron is still the same guy. He’s social, political, rebellious…But, he for sure sings with more skill, depending less on

Sun Ra – Sleeping Beauty

This is the great late-night Sun Ra chillout album, released in 1979 for El Saturn Records, that you never knew about. The band had been working in a more groove-oriented setting off and on for over a year, as evidenced by

Gil Scott-Heron – Pieces Of A Man

Rebellious, painful, filled with bitterness and tenderness, sometimes optimistic and even naive, rooted in the blues and jazz influences to which Scott-Heron referred to as “bluesology, the science of how things feel”, this album Heron definitely sings with ache in his voice. Pieces of
