Jack McDuffSophisticated Funk ... LP
Chess, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A lost electric groover from Brother Jack McDuff – sweet keyboards instead of his usual Hammond, but still plenty darn great!

Easily one of the best albums ever cut by this oft-overlooked bop trumpeter – and a clean, clear, no-nonsense session played with some great modern touches!

Groove Merchant, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
An early 70s gem from Jimmy McGriff! Jimmy's grooving with a larger group here – but in a funky 70s mode that makes for a great update of the rawer sound he laid out on some of his Sue sides in the 60s.

New Jimmy McGriffSoul Sugar ... LP
Capitol, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A fantastic album, and one of Jimmy's hardest to find! The set is quite different than most of Jimmy's other work – and it features short, hard, funky tracks that feel more like obscure 7" singles than any of Jimmy's straighter soul jazz work.

Saturn, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the greatest Saturn albums! This one has Ra playing clavioline and echoey "cosmic side drums" with a great spacey sound that was probably arrived at through some primitive reverb and echo techniques! The overall effect is everything you'd imagined about Sun Ra – a mixture ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Sun RaCosmos ... LP
Inner City, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the best-remembered Sun Ra albums from the 70s – a really cool little session that features Ra playing the unusual "rocksichord" all the way through!
