Beautiful recent work from this legendary Argentine bassist – heard here in the company of a quartet of young players who really know how to follow his lead! Half the tracks are originals, and half are jazz standards – but all are given a very fresh spin by the bass of Lopez – ... read more CD

Mario RuscaRecreations In Jazz ... CD
Right Tempo (Italy), 1976. New Copy .... $9.99
An obscure 70s gem from Italian pianist Mario Rusca – a blend of modal grooving, Latin-tinged rhythms, and straight hard blowing.

Patrice RushenBefore The Dawn ... LP
Prestige, 1975. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
Patrice Rushen's second album – and a very sweet batch of keyboard funk! The record has Patrice working in a groove that's almost like that of Herbie Hancock at the time – using lots of electric piano, clavinet, and synth to craft some mighty fine jazz funk grooves. The group's a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Patrice RushenShout It Out ... LP
Prestige, 1977. Very Good .... $6.99
A pivotal record for Patrice Rushen – a set that has her really tightening things up from her previous Prestige albums – heading much more towards the focused soul-drenched grooves of her Elektra Records years!

Monument/Soul Brother (UK), 1976/1978. New Copy .... $16.99
Two beautiful albums of spacey jazz funk! Eddie Russ was a 70s keyboard genius – right up there with Lonnie Liston Smith and Herbie Hancock in our book, although he never reached the fame of either of those players.
