It's easy to write off There's a Riot Goin' On as one of two things – Sly Stone's disgusted social commentary or the beginning of his slow descent into addiction. It's both of these things, of course, but pigeonholing it as either winds up dismissing the album as a whole, since it is so bloody hard to categorize. What's certain is that Riot is unlike any of Sly & the Family Stone's other albums, stripped of the effervescence that flowed through even such politically aware records as Stand! This is idealism soured, as hope is slowly replaced by cynicism, joy by skepticism, enthusiasm by weariness, sex by pornography, thrills by narcotics…

Writer and producer Leon Ware has been responsible for some of R&B and pop's most lush and romantic tracks. Ware produced Marvin Gaye's 1976 classic I Want You. He also co-wrote songs like Michael Jackson's "I Wanna Be Where You Are," Marlena Shaw's "Sweet Beginnings," and the Main Ingredient's "Rollin' Down a Mountainside" to name a few. This album is the follow-up to his 1976 Gordy release Musical Massage and was released shortly after he was behind the controls for nine of the ten tracks of Melissa Manchester's Don't Cry Loud. Inside Is Love has the intelligent and melody rich work fans expect from Leon Ware. Produced by Ware and Ron Roker, this has arrangements from David Blumberg, Gene Page, and Sonny Burke. Although he's not the world's strongest vocalist, his methodical, light tenor gives these songs a personal stamp. The first track, "What's Your Name" has Ware playing his naïve lothario act to the hilt. The magnificent "Love Is a Simple Thing," co-written by Chicago member Robert Lamm, possesses a chorus that is both poignant and uplifting.

Sena Ehrhardt's second Blind Pig release is a combination of soulful, roots-oriented music that incorporates blues-rock, reggae, soul-blues, and funk. The influence of multi-Grammy-award winner Jim Gaines, who has worked with numerous rock and blues performers, definitely made a difference in utilizing and combining the eclectic mixture without losing the identity of the band – Steve Hansen on bass, Tim Hasler on drums, and Sena's father, Ed Ehrhardt, on guitar. Seven of the songs on All In were written by Sena and her father, including the reflective closing track "Dreamin' or Dyin.'" Also of special note among the 11 tunes are the cover versions of Solomon Burke's "Cry to Me" and "Cold Cold Feeling," originally recorded by T-Bone Walker.

Jazz-Funk, Fusion | Label: Blue Note/Toshiba-EMI | # TOCJ-50541 | Time: 00:34:40

Though not as relentlessly funky as his classic Blue Note debut Two Headed Freap, On the Avenue remains the most accomplished record of Ronnie Foster's career, proving commercial aspirations and accoutrements can indeed co-exist alongside traditional jazz sensibilities. Produced by George Benson and featuring the great Phil Upchurch on guitar and Marvin Chapell on drums, On the Avenue favors more mellow, nuanced grooves over the blistering funk of previous Foster outings. The velvety opener "Serenade to a Rock" and the title cut both draw heavily on Stevie Wonder's classic mid-'70s recordings, with a lithe cover of the Innervisions track "Golden Lady" further underlining the influence. Foster also expands his palette to include Afro-Cuban sounds ("Big Farm Boy Goes to a Latin City") and even assumes vocal duties for the first time on LP with "To See a Smile." Best of all is his rendition of Freddie Hubbard's "First Light"; arguably Foster's purest and most potent performance to date.

"Sextant" is Herbie Hancock’s 1973 masterpiece. The recording is his final album with his Mwandishi Band. The musicians perform a brilliant set that includes the standouts, “Rain Dance,” “Hidden Shadows” and “Hornets”. The compositions are complex and rhythmically challenging. This electric, fusion-based work reached #3 on Billboard’s Top Jazz albums.
