Saun & Star - Look Closer Artist Saun & Starr
Title Look Closer
Label Daptone
Following their 2014 breakout single "Hot Shot" - the biggest selling Daptone 45 ever - longtime Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings backing singers, Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan Lowe, (known as Saun & Starr) release their debut full-length album, ’Look Closer’.

Produced by Gabriel Roth and recorded at the House of Soul in Bushwick, Brooklyn in 2014, ’Look Closer’ features 10 tracks including massive hit hit “Hot Shot”. Recorded with the Dap-Kings, the track has that signature Daptone sound: hard hitting drums and those horns that producers far and wide are craving for. Airy and soulful like a summer breeze, these two harmonize and trade vocals throughout. It’s no mistaking that this is a Daptone effort, and Saun & Starr are spot on with their vocals. This is an essential uplifting retro soul gem from the Daptone stable.

Scott-Heron, Gil - Pieces of a Man Artist Gil Scott-Heron
Title Pieces of A Man
Label Flying Dutchman
Gil Scott-Heron’s “Pieces Of A Man” is one of the most important albums in the history of black American music. Although it didn’t set the charts alight, it stands as a masterpiece alongside contemporary works such as Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Curtis Mayfield’s debut LP, Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain” and Isaac Hayes’ “Shaft”. All were brilliant in their way, but lyrically Scott-Heron was on a different level from almost every other writer. “Pieces Of A Man” was contemporary music performed by great jazz players, directed and prompted by Scott-Heron and his collaborator Brian Jackson, who at the time was not yet 20 years old. 
“Pieces Of A Man” has no weak spots. Scott-Heron’s lyrics never shy away from the political but are far from polemic. Instead they focus on the harsh realities of life. The title track, one of the most effective, looks at the uncaring nature of the workplace and the lack of value it puts on an individual. The story is developed with the brevity of great poetry, and long before it ends the listener is engrossed in its horror. It’s not all downbeat; ‘I Think I’ll Call It Morning’ rejoices in the need to face up to life, and how it can be worth it.
