Arif Mardin's second solo effort assembles a veritable who's who of funk and jazz greats, but Journey is no ego-stroking vanity project. A richly cinematic fusion suite appointed with all the texture and detail one would expect from a producer of Mardin's stature, it effortlessly melds the street-smart groove of blaxploitation-era soul with the cerebral expansiveness of jazz. Despite a roster of heavy-hitters including vibist Gary Burton, saxophonists Joe Farrell and Seldon Powell, flutist Hubert Laws, pianist Richard Tee, and drummers Steve Gadd and Bernard Purdie, Journey never buckles under the collective weight of its talent – Mardin's production yields an end result greater than the sum of the music's individual parts, forging a tight, cohesive sound more suggestive of a veteran studio crew than a collection of all-star soloists.

This was Margie Joseph's third album for Atlantic. Like the first two, Arif Mardin was the producer, arranger and conductor, but it was to be the last time that Arif Mardin was Margie's producer. The album yielded two minor hits, these being Words are impossible and Stay still. Covers of songs by Carole King (Believe in humanity, After all this time) and Bill Withers (The same love that made me laugh)sit comfortably among originals including two that Margie co-wrote with Arif (Sign of the times, Stay still). Margie Joseph was an excellent performer, but that big hit eluded her, so she never made the big time. Nevertheless, she made some excellent music of which this album is typical.

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino have built a deserved global following by specialising in pizzica, the hypnotic music of south-east Italy reputed to cure spider bites, with its pounding frame drums, violin, accordion, bagpipes and harmony vocals. They have always mixed traditional and contemporary influences, and here their songwriter Mauro Durante collaborates with European and US writers, including the album’s producer, Joe Mardin, who has worked with Aretha Franklin. It’s a set packed with surprises, most of them welcome.

I Wish I Knew, Solomon Burke's final album for longtime home label Atlantic, is a mix of R&B oldies, sappy contemporary tunes and a scurrying search for style in the storm. Burke was in the middle of a cultural revolution when this album was made; soul music now crashed with such sonic force to keep up with pop's psychedelic trippings that Burke's blend of Sam Cooke-like cooing and Sunday-morning fervor seemed a bit quaint. The seasoning of I Wish I Knew is misguided at best.
