Description

THE COLLECTIVE THAT INCLUDES THE POETS OF RHYTHM, WHITEFIELD BROTHERS AND KARL HECTOR & THE MALCOUNS PRESENT A SERIES OF RARE FUNK, JAZZ, SOUL AND WORLD-PSYCH SINGLES COMPILED AS AN ALBUM.

It’s been nearly fifteen years since the vinyl-only releases by the various ensembles helmed by Jay and Max Whitefield – also known as the Whitefield Brothers and the nucleus of the revered Poets of Rhythm – were collated onto an Original Raw Soul album. The last – 1997’s More Original Raw Soul – largely contained the duo’s heavy funk and soul… well before the aughts’ Deep Funk revival that one could argue began with these two German siblings’ earliest recordings.

Fitting, then, that this – Original Raw Soul III – looks bac at recordings dating back over twenty years but neve once sounds dated or dull. There’s the garage funk of the early Poets incarnation the Bus People Express; the deep jazz of vocalist Bajka gigging with a Max Whitefield ensemble; the pan-African psych-jazz of the Whitefield Brothers. And that’s just three of the ensembles contained within. Original Raw Soul III contains sixteen tracks that span the gamut of forty years of musical innovation, recorded over the past twenty years, and presented anew today.

Contains two previously unreleased songs by The Transgressors, also released on a 7″ in conjunction with this album
