G Code Party Mix

Records in Bag

A friend asked me a to make a mix to play at a fall party / cookout. Being during the day and an older skewing crowd, I stacked up jazzy, mellow ,funky, type records. But as always, it is some free form funkified filth. And, as always, all vinyl.

It is more of a free association type mix, pulling records out just before playing, and few rough spots happen along the way (especially when I was making coffee). All fun though.

Moe Koffman – Moe’s Curried Soul LP

Moes curried soul 3

Curried Soul


Sunshine Superman


High Heel Sneakers


This is a record that calls to be judged by its cover. It even comes with a recipe on the back for curried soul that is an actual dish!

Turns out that Moe Koffman was a Toronto based jazz horn player who often incorporated pop into his repertoire. This album is one of those 1970s instrumental-covers-with-a-smattering-of- originals records. There is a real Memphis soul influence on this Buddah Records release.

Here we get Curried Soul which is a bit of a mish-mash with sitar bits and a horn line echoing Edwin Starr’s 25 Miles , a cover of Donovan’s Sunshine Superman and a nearly unrecognizable Hi-Heel Sneakers
