What's the track we keep returning to, the one with the biggest groove that pushes you inside? Yes. 'Truck Fump.' Marcus “Tennishu” Tenney steals the show possibly from his desk in the alt. oval office blowing his horn but actually no the groove is wail-y the thing most and a Butcher Brown speciality, a band that Darrel Sheinman's Gearbox label championed early on. Now on Concord Jazz, the US mega-indie going through a good spell again since signing Nubya Garcia, check the track out not only for its cunning worditry in the title if feelgood's a priority in terms of feel. Drawn from Encore, a 4 June release other tracks are: 'VA Noir', 'For My Love', 'Aviation (Outro)' and 'Hair Grease'. Butcher Brown, above. Photo: via Bandcamp. Link to trouser the track. Also, while in the neighbourhood, there's must-hear Butcher Brown input on an ace slice of Hendrixiana that we also dig a lot.

Rhino are reissuing Bags' and Brother Ray's Soul Brothers on 18 June as a mono LP. Ray Charles plays alto saxophone as well as piano on the Nesuhi Ertegun-produced 1958 release in duo with the Modern Jazz Quartet vibes deity Milt Jackson.

The title track is a Quincy Jones number with Leroy Carr's 'How Long, How Long Blues' from the 1920s also on the A side. On the flip are Ray Charles numbers 'Cosmic Ray' and 'Blue Funk' plus Bags' 'Bag's Guitar Blues' and the Fred Rose and Walter Hirsch title 'Deed I Do,' a song that also goes back to the 20s and covered by both Lena Horne and Bobby Troup earlier in the 50s. Also on the record are tenorist Billy Mitchell, Modern Jazz Quartet and Astral Weeks drummer Connie Kay, double bassist Oscar Pettiford and guitarists Skeeter Best & Kenny Burrell.
