On his records for Britain's Tru Thoughts label, Nostalgia 77 -- aka Ben Lamdin -- melds live jazz musicians, crackling funk breaks, snippets of Afrobeat and soulful vocals from hot talents like Alice Russell. The grooves are loose and the *** is deep -- Nostalgia 77's albums feature songs you can get sweaty to in a club on Saturday night and chill out with on Sunday morning. Lamdin makes his D.C. debut on the turntables at Eighteenth Street Lounge this weekend; upstairs on the second floor, hear live jazz from the Donvonte McCoy Sextet.
