This third installment in the "Diggin' Deeper: The Roots of Acid Jazz" series, which collects likely funk, jazz, soul, fusion, and disco sides from the deep Columbia/Epic/Sony catalog, includes such gems as Art Blakey's "Cubano Chant" and Lalo Schifrin's "Jaws," a Shaft-meets-Frankenstein hybrid version of the "Jaws" movie theme.
This set moves and grooves from end to end, and even listeners with little interest in the acid jazz movement that surfaced some two decades after most of these tracks were recorded will find a great little alternative dance album lurking here.

The title of this compilation tries to make Montgomery viable for a younger generation, but it's not exactly "acid jazz." Rather, it's an anthology of some of Montgomery's better pop- and soul-oriented material from the mid-'60s. The 16 tracks show Montgomery in both orchestral and small combo settings, a few cuts taken from his collaborations with Jimmy Smith. Purists have long disdained this phase of Montgomery's career. But those who don't measure work by how straight-ahead it is will find much to enjoy here, in either the cuts with Oliver Nelson's orchestra, or the less elaborate sessions with the likes of Smith, Grady Tate, Ron Carter, and Ray Barretto.

The 16 tracks presented here are some mighty fine recordings, featuring Cal Tjader on vibes throughout. "Manteca" becomes a sexy weaving of melodies between the flute and vibes, adding depth to this modern classic. "Soul Burst" features an explosion of percussion by congas, timbales and more – while Tito Puente's "Picadillo" is rendered superbly as well. Not a bad track on the CD, and you will have fun recognizing some of the 60's classic jazz performers that have joined in, including Chick corea, Donald Byrd, Willie Bobo, and more. –Amazon

Taking Beenie’s original 1992 album Cool Cool Rider and adding a heap of tracks from that era, this Trojan set is a highly desirable disc for the dancehall singer’s most hardcore fans. It’s likely they’ve encountered these tracks before, although on inferior sets with poor sound quality. The source material is still rough and recorded on the cheap, but Trojan does what they can as crucial cuts like “No Mama No Cry,” “Black Liberty,” and the title track punch out of the speakers like they did on their original Jamaican 45s. Newcomers should be warned that Beenie was more aggressive and less tuneful than he would become two years later when songs like “Slam” and “Romie” came along, and you certainly shouldn’t expect anything as smooth as “Girls Dem Sugar” since this material is much more frantic. A couple tracks from a decade earlier, when a ten-year-old Beenie scored a hit with “Too Fussy,” would have made this the ultimate early set, but it’s a small complaint seeing as how Trojan has liberated this rare material from bootleg status.

The Magic of Coin-Trees from Religion to Recreation: The Roots of a Ritual

The Magic of Coin-Trees from Religion to Recreation: The Roots of a Ritual By Ceri Houlbrook
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 311 Pages | ISBN : 3319755161 | 12.92 MB

This book traces the history of ritual landscapes in the British Isles, and the transition from religious practice to recreation, by focusing on a highly understudied exemplar: the coin-tree. These are trees imbued with magical properties into which coins have been ritually embedded. This is a contemporary custom which can be traced back in the literature to the 1700s, when it was practiced for folk-medical and dedicatory purposes. Today, the custom is widespread, with over 200 coin-trees distributed across the British Isles, but is more akin to the casual deposition of coins in a wishing-well: coins are deposited in the tree in exchange for wishes, good luck, or future fortune. Ceri Houlbrook contributes to the debate on the historic relationships between religion, ritual, and popular magic in British contexts from 1700 to the present.
