Blow It Out was among Tom Scott's best selling albums of the 1970s. The only thing that I can say about this album is OUTSTANDING! When Tom first put his album out,(77-78) the track "Shadows" put this album in the spot light. "Dream Lady" soon followed. Tom had done other things before "Blow it Out" but they didn't match this one album.
Nasser Bouzida a.k.a 'The Bongolian' releases his third album 'Outer Bongolia' on Monday 5th November 2007. This is Nasser in his element as he embarks on a psychedelic musical trip to the outer regions of the Funk galaxy, taking in spaced-out heavy Bongo rhythms and Latin Soul along the way – all 100% Original Dancefloor Rhythms. (Instruments featured include the Hammond, Bongos, Synthesisers, Vibes.) Written, arranged, performed and produced entirely by Nasser at his Ramshackle Studios on analogue 8 track, the album was mixed by Nick Terry (Klaxons, SMD) at The Premises in Hackney, London.

Arnett Cobb's debut for Prestige and his first recording as a leader in three years (due to a serious car accident in 1956) is an explosive affair. Cobb is matched up with fellow tough tenor Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, and there are plenty of sparks set off by their encounter. With organist Wild Bill Davis, bassist George Duvivier, and drummer Arthur Edgehill keeping the proceedings heated, Cobb and Davis tangle on a variety of basic material, alternating uptempo romps such as "Go Power" and "Go Red Go" with slightly more sober pieces highlighted by "When I Grow Too Old to Dream." This is a great matchup (reissued on CD through the OJC imprint) that lives up to its potential.
