Ronnie Bird, de son vrai nom Ronald Méhu, est un chanteur de rock français, né à Boulogne-sur-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine) le 24 avril 1946. Il fréquente jusqu'en seconde le lycée Claude Bernard, qu'il quitte sur un conflit avec un professeur. Il a publié son premier enregistrement en 1964 chez Decca avec pour titre vedette Adieu à un ami, qui était un hommage à Buddy Holly. Il compte à son actif une dizaine de 45 tours et un album 33 tours. Malgré d'évidentes qualités et quelques succès (Elle m'attend, Où va-t-elle ?), il a renoncé à sa carrière artistique après cinq ans d'activité, faute d'avoir acquis une popularité à la mesure de son attente.

Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Fast and funky fusion from David Matthews – building off the sound of his later Kudu recordings with a sweet electric groove! The album's got a pretty full approach overall – with Matthews on electric piano, and directing a large group of players that includes Mike Maineri, Michael Brecker, Jon Faddis, Shunzo Ohno, and Ronnie Cuber – and a number of tracks feature a vocal chorus that includes Ullanda McCullough and Yvonne Lewis. The overall style is slick, but not in a bad way – and Matthews more than meets the Japanese fusion sound head to head for this non-US release from the time!

Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Ronnie Foster cut plenty of sweet fusion sides for Columbia Records at the start of the 80s – but this set's from the second half of the decade, and was initially an album that was only issued for the Japanese market! Foster arranged the whole record himself, and works with a nice lean lineup that includes Phil Upchurch on guitar, Harvey Mason and Ndugu on drums, and Paulinho Da Costa on additional percussion – all in a groove that's kind of a mid 80s update of Foster's earlier mode, still delivered with just the right sense of space and soul! Titles include "Ipanema Walk", "Festival Do Brasil", "Squirt", "Night Life", "Europe", and "The Racer".

Rock guitar virtuoso Jeff Beck dazzles the crowd at celebrated London jazz club Ronnie Scott's with an extended set that includes hits such as "Beck's Bolero" and "'Cause We've Ended as Lovers." The former Yardbird proves he's still got the chops on other tunes including "Blast from the East," "Eternity's Breath," "People Get Ready" (with vocalist Joss Stone), "You Need Love" (with fellow Yardbird Eric Clapton) and more.

Ronnie Earl recorded Surrounded by Love with a new version of the Broadcasters. The most notable factor of the new lineup is the reappearance of Sugar Ray Norcia, the finest vocalist/harpist Earl ever recorded with. The band sounds tight and energetic, especially on the three tracks they cut with Robert Lockwood. Jr.. Parts of the album are a little slow, but the album is very entertaining, even with its minor flaws. [Hepcat's 2008 reissue included two bonus selections.]

Modern Electric Blues | Label: Bullseye Blues | # CD BB 9552 | Time: 01:13:22

Although not released until 1995, this CD was recorded live in 1993 in Bremen, Germany. Live in Europe is Earl's tribute to his major influences, and Ronnie plays his favorite guitar throughout: a 1962 red Strat. The fast, driving "San-Ho-Zay" and "Blues for the West Side" go out to Magic Sam; "The Stumble" to Freddie King; "Thank You Mr. T-Bone" to T-Bone Walker and Duke Robillard (who inspired Earl to learn T-Bone). "Thank You Mr. T-Bone" features some cool call-and-response between Earl and Bruce Katz on the Hammond B-3. It segues nicely into "Akos," where you'll find more great B-3 (check out the improvised "Summertime" riff). An all-instrumental offering, Live in Europe includes a handful of tunes found on its predecessor, Still River, including "Szeren," "Rego Park Blues," and the aforementioned "Blues for the West Side." "Contrition," a slow, soulful tune penned by Katz, has some jaw-dropping runs by Earl. One can only imagine what it must have been like to be one of the lucky souls at this show. The only fault to be found on this album is the mislabeling of several tunes on the cover. (For example, "The Stumble" is listed as "Not Now Kovitch.") Still, it's this reviewer's all-time favorite album – thank you, Mr. Earl.

Jazz / Jazz Funk / Soul Jazz / Groove / Organ

Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. Amazing stuff by Ronnie Foster – a sweet little album of slow funky keyboard tones, much more loosely arranged than his later work, with a dope groove that was years ahead of its time! The album's in some ways a blueprint for some of our favorite jazz-based hip hop – and although Ronnie's playing organ, on most of the cuts, he handles the instrument more like it's a Fender Rhodes! Funky jazz with a sinister, soulful groove – with players including Gene Bianco on harp, Arthur Jenkins on congas, George Duvivier and Gordon Edwards on bass, Jimmy Johnson on drums, Gerorge Dvens on vibes and Gene Gertoncini on guitar. Includes the massive cut "Mystic Brew", which is a tasty Tribe sample, plus lots of other goodies like "Chunky", "Summer Song", and "Don't Knock My Love".
