Aesop Rock —
Float ... CD Mush/Block Block Chop, 2000. Used ....
This is the Aesop album on MUSH records before he got signed to Def Jux. It is a piece of raw, dark, poetic artistry that describes his hometown of NYC and the trials and tribulations in it beautifully. This album is a little rougher and his lyrical style is just a little more advanced on his ... (Hip Hop) read moreCD

Compelling work from Andreus – an underground Chicago singer with a very unique approach! Andreus is really trying for the "street" in the title of this one – blending a smoother NuSoul mode with some heavier and more political influences. The result is a mixture of R&B, ... (Neo Soul) read moreCD
A more recent effort from Horace Andy, with his delicate voice couched in some heavy tracks, that have the punch of modern production values with an eye towards the sound of classic roots.

Warm jazzy soul from Patti Austin – a record that still holds strongly in the sound she pioneered with GRP Records in earlier years, proof that Austin was one of the leading lights of the label during its classic years!

Crackling with excitement – and the future of piano jazz! The Bad Plus are a totally tight trio that explore the realm of acoustic piano with the same depth and imagination that Medeski, Martin, & Wood once brought to the Hammond. The trio are clearly steeped in pop influences from the ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Great stuff from Eryka Badu – sweet, mellow, soulful, and with a very righteous vibe! The record's got some impeccable production – and the best cuts have a stripped-down groove that mixes keyboards and vocals in a way that's similar to recent work by D'Angelo and Jill Scott. Eryka's ... (Neo Soul) read moreCD
One of the most iconic rock and roll shows of all time – the late 70s farewell to The Band – and quite famously, much more final concert by an esteemed band, it's actually a rock, pop, folk, blues and soul summit that features The Band as the house band. This landmark document of the ... (Rock) read moreCD
Later Bond, but John Barry's still firmly in place – and is more than capable of turning out another wonderful thriller soundtrack!

Nice one! Even at their weakest vocal moments, we've always dug the Beastie Boys' firm committment to funky instrumental backing. Their albums are filled with lots of nice interludes, instrumentals, and backing grooves that always seem to get buried amidst all of the tracks with vocals. Now, ... (Hip Hop) read moreCD

Really lovely work from Beady Belle – a self-produced album that's filled with some of their most evocative tunes ever!

George Benson's first LP for Columbia – a hard, heavy, soul jazz slammer that bears no resemblance to his overproduced work of the 70s! The album's a real cooker – recorded hot on the heels of Benson's classic work on Prestige with the Jack McDuff group, and sounding a lot like McDuff's ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Classic early set featuring the Jazz Messengers back when the group still included Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, and Kenny Dorham.

To us, most of Bobby's early Duke albums would serve fine as "best of" sets in and of themselves – so great is his work for that label during this period! This one's a pretty great sampling of his genius – that unique blend of blues and soul that still makes Bobby's work ... (Blues) read moreCD
The queen of hip hop soul takes it back to the gutter with guest spots by Jay-Z and P-Diddy on "Love & Life", 50 Cent on "Let Me Be The One", and Method Man on "Love @ 1st Sight", but overall this one has Mary in a better mood than the last album! You've probably ... (Soul) read moreCD
