Magical Shepherd was Weather Report bassist Miroslav Vitous' fourth effort as a leader, released after he left the band. It's a deep, raw, funky fusion record that features -- besides one of the most hideously stupid covers imaginable -- appearances by Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, drummer James Gadson, and percussionist Airto. Vocalists Cheryl Grainger and Onike contribute as well, making this as much a basement-party and groove record as a jazz one. Vitous played as much synth as Hancock on this set and took it to the limit on "Basic Laws," a nearly 12-minute excursion into space funk with all the grease attached. The nine-and-a-half-minute "New York City" was vying to be produced by Giorgio Moroder as a disco slab, while the completely gone singing on the title track made it a precursor to Sun Ra's Lanquidity album a few years later. (Imagine Star Trek doing the "Space Is the Place" episode brought to you by T.J. Swan or Boogie Down Wine.) While this album is very much a product of it's time, that doesn't make it bad -- not by a long shot. Magical Shepherd is one of the better, darker, and weirder fuzak albums of the time. There is no soul-jazz here -- this is pedal-to-the-metal, booty-grindin' R&B crossed with edgy monitors bleeding into the red-jamming and dark-angel vocals, sending the whole thing off into the stratosphere. This Wounded Bird reissue on CD sounds fantastic and, while there are no extra tracks, you don't need them. For anyone interested in the wilder, woolier music of the mid-'70s, Magical Shepherd holds up exceedingly well.

Betty Davis, la pantera del funk

Se adelantó a divas negras como Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse o Janelle Monáe. Desaparecida de los rádares hace años, Betty Davis fue precursora de las soul sisters más sensuales. La diosa de ébano funk por excelencia. Y que, por otra parte, descubriría las bondades de los instrumentos eléctricos a un tal Miles Davis, con quien estuvo casada un tiempo. Hablamos de ti, Betty.

Nat King Cole, un rey amado por todos

Intemporal e idolatrado, en el mejor sentido de la expresión, Nat King Cole habría cumplido 100 años el 17 de marzo de 2019. Elegante pianista y crooner de aterciopelada voz, entusiasmó al público mayoritario en las décadas de los 40 y 50, sin dejar de cautivar a los fanáticos del jazz con su innata sofisticación. En un mundo de testas coronadas, el rey (Cole) supo hacerse un sitio entre el duque (Ellington) y el conde (Basie).

Verve, el sonido de América

Al calificar su sello como «el sonido de América» Norman Granz acertó plenamente. Eso fue, claro está, en el pasado siglo. Y, claro está, en el ámbito del jazz. Pero todavía hoy cabe considerar Verve, con un catálogo donde brillan los nombres de Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Evans, Lester Young, Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson y muchos más, como una de las más excitantes aventuras musicales del siglo XX.
