Praise Poems Vol. 2 - A journey into deep, soulful jazz & funk from the 1970s

Although Tramp Records is known for some incredible compilation series the second part of their "Praise Poems" collections turned out to be a pretty early successor. It seems like the label's stock of rare soul gems will never be depleted

Apparently it was Abraham Battat's "Fly Away", the opener, that inspired the Tramp Crew for this quick release and who could blame them? With is soothing sounds this track really impersonates the spirit of this series. But there is still more to this compilation like rhythm and blues sounds by Jimmy Briggs or funky jazz jams in Third Stream's "In A Galaxy Far Away" or Joe B's "The Dude". Every tune features a nice laid back feeling that hides a lot of musical quality to discover and is thus far from any form of the traditional and cheesy easy listening genre.

Get some clips on Soundcloud. Release will be in early September.
