Janko Nilovic is a pianist, poet and composer extraordinaire from Montenegro who has lived in France since 1960. He is one of those musicians who devote themselves to music fanatically. This resulted in a great number of published works, but most of them are on library labels not available for sale. His opus stretches from Classical, Jazz and Funk to Pop, Psyche and Easy Listening. He touches all these styles in a characteristic way.
Soul Impressions is his funky instrumentals masterpiece! Half tracks on album are groovy killers! Including Blaxploitation style trilla-drivers “Hippocampus” and “Crazy Enterprise”!

Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studio,
Englewood Cliffs, NJ, December 19, 1967

The selection of material for Soul Power! was a little pop-oriented, including a few contemporary soul hits ("How Can I Be Sure," "Sunny," "Gimme Little Sign"), "Since I Fell for You," and Neal Hefti's ballad "Girl Talk," rounded out by Horace Silver's "The Preacher" and Richard "Groove" Holmes' own "Soul Power." There's not much that can be said about the performances that couldn't be said about numerous other soul-jazz sessions of the late '60s (many on the same label, Prestige). It's relaxed and funky, organ-paced small-combo music, Holmes perhaps breaking out less of a sweat than some of his more bop-influenced and frenetic contemporaries. The unexpected high point is the cover of the Rascals' "How Can I Be Sure." Far from being a routine run-through of a then-current pop hit, it has some compellingly stuttering, overlapping runs from Holmes and a swinging, tense rhythm backup. That rapid-fire style of organ reappears to a somewhat lesser degree in "Sunny," and for the most part the rest of the set is more in line with the routine Prestige soul-jazz product of the era. [All but one of the tracks ("Gimme Little Sign") were added to the 2004 expanded reissue of Holmes' 1967 album Super Soul as bonus cuts.]

Following the success of Blue Lights in the Basement in early 1978, Roberta Flack released this self-titled album late that same year on Atlantic. It featured the single "If Ever I See You Again," written by Joe Brooks, who penned Debby Boone's massive hit "You Light Up My Life." The song peaked at No. 24 on the Pop Singles Chart, No. 37 on the R&B Singles Chart, and No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary Chart. Produced by Jerry Greenberg, Joseph Ferla, Joe Brooks, and Rubina Flake, the album reached No. 74 on the Pop Albums Chart and No. 37 on the R&B Albums Chart. "When It's Over" and "You Are Everything" reached No. 82 and No. 98 on the R&B Singles Chart, respectively.

Roberta Flack is the only album in Roberta's Atlantic catalogue that has never been reissued on CD in the US. Only available on compact disc in Japan for a time, it is now highly collectible in the CD format.

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers '' 'S Make It''


Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

'' 'S Make It''
( LP Verve Records, 1964 )

A lost classic from Art Blakey – quite different from some of his Blue Note work! The album's a very swinging mid 60s session, noteworthy for the presence of John Gilmore, recording here in one of his few appearances away from Sun Ra. Gilmore wails on tenor, and he sounds great next to Lee Morgan, who had, at this point, briefly returned to play with Blakey, and fit in with the group beautifully. John Hicks is on piano, and contributes a few nice tracks – and Curtis Fuller rounds out the sextet nicely, hitting some of those great gutbuckety notes that he only ever seemed to manage when he worked with Blakey!...Dusty Groove

1 Faith
2 `S Make It
3 Waltz for Ruth
4 One for Gamal
5 Little Hughie
6 Olympia
7 Lament for Stac

Crown Heights Affair ''You Don't Have To Say You Love Me'' 7''

Well I have been trawling through my files and came across this gem and thought I would share it You Don't Have To Say You Love Me.I purchased a lot of vinyl in 1979 but cannot think of a better album every track a winner,it brings back memories of Soul Nights at The Ilford Town Hall with our never to be forgotten friend DJ Froggy R.I.P.
I was searching online for the album cover and was pleasantly surprised that one of our blogger friends has it online here
This is the 7"mix the album version is 2 minutes longer.
Now I'm back in the groove I might just do a little set for MFS Radio!
