  1. Les Oiseaux Morts (alternative take 76)
  2. Mary & Jeff (Fender Rhodes version 77)
Review: Alternative Parisian label Trad Vibe proudly issue two rare and previously unreleased tracks from elusive cult French band, Cortex. "Unreleased Versions" meanders through soul, jazz, funk and chill out on its two tracks, "Les Oiseaux Morts" and "Mary & Jeff." Led by Alain Mion, Cortex are a French jazz-funk band with an extremely rare discography that drives record collectors and music lovers wild. Happy to part with handsome figures in exchange for their rare releases, the record collectors out there are dealt a lucky treat here, as are music lovers of all types, as they are given the chance to own two tracks that only a handful of fortunate people have ever heard. Side A is an alternate and previously unreleased take of "Les Oiseaux Morts." A slower and deeper version, it grooves its way through gentle French jazz-funk and soft pop. A crawling drum beat joins melodic keys as the track smoothly glides along to the soulful male vocal. "Mary & Jeff" is much more upbeat. It was recorded for television in 1977 and includes an explosive Fender Rhodes chorus giving the release a truly special feel as the original track was performed on an acoustic piano. Alongside this, there are plenty of funked up guitars and energetic drum rolls making for an enthralling five minute hair raising ride through Parisian jazz at its untamed best. Owning something rare always comes with a special feeling in itself, but when the rarity also sounds this good - then you really have got something special on your hands.

  1. Small Fry
  2. Small Fry (Patchworks remix)
Review: The multi talented Mr Day provides another release on Favourite Recordings with "Small Fry." Perfectly in tone with label and artist, this soulful release offers the original alongside a disco mix from Patchworks.

Hailing from France, Mr Day has his highly insurable fingers in several pies. He is the singer for both the French jazz combo, Metropolitan Jazz Affair and The Dynamics. He has also featured on highly acclaimed productions by Patchworks, Boozoo Bajou and Mr President not to mention his own electro soul releases on indie label Rotax. Now, Favourite recordings will be unleashing his debut solo album next month and have therefore decided to release "Small Fry" as a taster of the album which goes by the same name.

Displaying his immensely soulful disposition, the track Evokes classic 70s soul from the likes of Marvyne Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Al Green. Its composition is sparse and roomy, each sound is given space to breathe as this easy and enveloping track unfolds with swagger and finesse. Effortlessly suave, "Small Fry" perhaps hints at the kind of pure soul music, dipped in elegance that we can expect from the forth coming full length. It is a beautiful track that also touches on Northern soul and Motown whilst keeping Mr Day's unique own sound.

Completing the package is fellow Frenchman, Patchworks. The esteemed producer and long time collaborator with Mr Day gives us a fresh and upfront disco-soul remix. More suited to the dancefloor than the original, his remix still retains the warm, vintage style that his production is known for.
