Stunning sounds from the soul lounge – a magical place filled with the hippest contemporary cuts from the underground – all served up at an astoundingly low price!

40 tracks, at one mighty nice price – and a killer entry in the long-running Soul Lounge series!

Lou DonaldsonFried Buzzard ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A live set recorded in 1965 – and more straight ahead soul jazz than Lou's later funk work on Blue Note, even though Leo Morris/Idris Muhammad is on drums. The album is a nice transitional session, though, with a good lounge jazz feel, and some nice long cuts like "Fried Buzzard", "Summertime" – and "The Thang", which have a rawer feel than most of his Blue Note stuff.

New Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel De BamakoLes Ambassadeurs Du Motel De Bamako ... CD
Sterns, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Hardly the kind of group you'd hear in an American motel during the 70s – no cheesy lounge jazz here – and instead, a crucially important group on the West African scene, with great vocals by a young Salif Keita! The group have a style that nicely encompasses other influences from up north and the other side of the Atlantic – not in a cover band sort of way, but with careful ears for elements borrowed from Latin music, soul, jazz, and other styles – all woven into a rich tapestry of sound that's heavy on sweet guitar lines and cascading rhythms. There's also some very nice saxophone passages at times, which deepen the soul of the music – and the CD features 2CDs worth of material from the group's prime years, including a few previously unissued tracks. Titles include "Mali Denou", "Sabar", "Ray M'Bote", "Radio Mali Broadcast", "Djandio", "Mana Mana", "Tiecolom-Ba", "Wara", and "Djoula". CD

New Koki Hanawa & Yusuke OgawaJapanese Jazz 1950s to 1980s (paperback) ... Book
Rittor (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An essential resource for fans of rare jazz albums – an ultra-cool discography that's done in the same style as other Japanese books on American music – but which focuses on rare bits from Japan! Like other volumes of this type, this one specially selects the coolest of the cool – really standout records from some of the best decades in Japanese jazz – all records that are even harder to than American or Brazilian rarities! Each title is presented with a full color cover image, original date, song titles, and personnel – although some of the last two pieces of information is in Japanese, given the origin of the material. And knowing the titles that we have heard in the book, we can definitely say that the authors are right on the money in their choices – as they've picked some of the best hardbop, soul jazz, funky fusion, and other styles from Japan – with some especially wonderful bits from the 60s and 70s. The book features sections on modern jazz, jazz rock, fusion, vocal, bossa nova, and lounge rarities from Japan – and it appears to feature a few hundred records in all! And if you're not the type that shells out big cash for rare records, the book even seems to have a legend to indicate if you can find the title on CD – very helpful, given how many Japanese jazz CDs we carry here at Dusty Groove. 229 pages, softcover.

New John Johnson, Joel Selvin & Dick CamiPeppermint Twist – The Mob, The Music & The Most Famous Dance Club Of The 60s (hardcover) ... Book
Thomas Dunne, 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
You've no doubt read plenty about the way the mafia penetrated the music industry in the 50s and 60s – from record pressing to distribution to artist management and beyond – but you'll be hard-pressed to read a more lively account than this one – the story of the legendary Peppermint Lounge and its ties to the Genovese crime family! The club opened in the late 50s and closed by the mid 60s – but was a key part in rock and soul performance in New York City – and in addition to Joe Dee & The Starlighters, who recorded a famous album at the venue – the book also looks at a range of other artists too – but the main focus is on club runner Dick Cami and the way he built the business while also dealing with the mob. The authors worked closely with Cami – who provides plenty of lively stories – and the book is 289 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book

New VariousLight On The Southside – Photographs Of Chicago Southside Nightlife 1975 to 1977 (hardcover book with 2LP set) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/2009. New Copy 2LP & Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the most beautiful record we've ever seen from the folks at The Numero Group – and that's saying a lot, given the quality of all their top-shelf releases! This beautiful edition features a hardcover book of vintage black and white photographs taken on Chicago's south side in the mid 70s – images of patrons and proprietors from long-lost nite spots that include Perv's House, Pepper's Hideout, The High Chaparral, and The Showcase Lounge – all the kind of clubs that were likely to feature the sort of Chicago funk and soul that Numero's been reissuing for the past few years! The images are amazing – a really rare look into the community that supported this sort of music – caught far far from the mainstream, in placed that were almost even private, compared to more well-travelled entertainment outlets. Photographs come from the collection of Michael Abramson – and are beautifully reproduced on LP-sized pages, in a book that also features some vintage flyers, posters, and business cards from the clubs! And if that's not enough, Numero also throws in some great notes of their own, and a bonus 2LP set with music that includes "I'm A Streaker Baby" by Arelean Brown, "No Better Time Than Now" by Ricky Allen, "The Same One" by Malcolm Simmons, "You Made Me Suffer" by Andrew Brown, "This Is My Prayer" by Lady Margo, "It's A Dream" by Little Ed & The Soundmasters Band, "I Sayed That" by Slim Willis Band, "Bring It Down Front" by Hugh Hawkins, "Womans Lib" by Lucille Spann, "Gimmie Some Of Yours" by Artie White, "Baby" by Walter Butterball Davis, "Is It Because I'm Black (inst)" by Syl Johnson, "Goose Walk" by Little Mack, "Young Blood" by Detroit Jr, "California Lady" by James Kinds & Stack, and "I Learned My Lesson" by Willie Davis. The albums are packaged in their own Numero-like cover – then nestled in a slipcover with the book – a hell of a sweet set at this price, and it also comes with an introduction by Nick Hornby!

New Corey WilkesKind Of Miles – Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD
Katalyst, 2011. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Trumpeter Corey Wilkes and a great group pay homage to Miles Davis at Chicago's legendary Velvet Lounge in May of 2010! Miles' spirit and soul are in each note here, but the group doesn't set out to simply cover the material – these are fresh, yet deeply influenced perspectives. It kicks off with a slow-building take on the Jerome Kern-penned "Yesterdays" that feels like Miles' late 60s style, and it works really well. The pieces are each pretty spacious and it's great that way – you don't want 'em to end! Kevin Nabors is on tenor, Greg Spero on keys, Junius Paul on bass, Xavier Breaker on drums and Kahil El Zabar on percussion. Includes "Yesterdays", "It's About That Time", "Tutu" and "So What/In It's Right Place" – running 15 to 26+ minutes each. CD

New Lefty EdwardsRight Side Of Lefty Edwards ... LP
Workshop Jazz, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful lost album of jazz from the Detroit underground of the 60s! Tenorist Charles "Lefty" Edwards may have only recorded this one album – and it's one of the few rare treasures on Motown's Workshop Jazz subsidiary. Lefty plays here in a soul jazz-oriented group with Johnny Griffin on piano, Joe Messina on guitar, Vance Matlock on bass, and Ben Apling on drums. The album's got a great laidback quality – kind of if Lester Young was able to kick back in a small Chicago soul jazz lounge during the early 60s – and Edwards' tone and placement of the solos is filled with the kind of on-the-spot imagination that you'd only catch at a small intimate club. Titles include "Feeling", "I Lay Me Down", "Gliding Home", "Up N Adam", and "Fly Me To The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is nice and clean overall. Cover has some light ringwear, a bit of splitting on the spine, and some DJ notes on the back.)

New Sandra AlexandraWarm & Wild ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Very nice pop soul session, with production by Calvin Carter, and a sound that's similar to some of the Capitol LA soul sessions from the late 60s. Sandra sings in an easy loungey voice, and covers tracks like "Wedding Bell Blues", "She Will Break Your Heart", and "Ooh Baby I Love You" – but with a hipper sound than you might expect. The set also includes a nice version of "Hold On, I'm Comin", with a good solid groove in the intro – and we should also mention that Sandra plays all the piano on the record! LP, Vinyl record album

Four very cool groovers from Italian maestro Armando Trovajoli – pressed up here on a limited edition 7" EP, with two tracks that have never been issued before! "Roma Bene" is represented by a rare "shake" version that has some fuzzy guitar that trips out nicely over upbeat grooves – and "La Pecora Nera" gets a cool vocal take from Rocky Roberts, who sings soulfully over the mod rhythms! Side two features a new edit of "Rosamor", sung by Juca Chavez – and the sublime "Soft & Smooth" too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

GazzaraBossa Lounge Experience ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
Mighty keyboards from Francesco Gazzara – easily one of our favorite Irma Records artists from years back – still sounding pretty darn great here in a nicely mature setting! The album's got a bit of the bossa promised in the title, but also has a wider-ranging groove too – echoes of older keyboard modes, mixed with bits of jazz funk at times – all handled by Gazzara on a range of Fender Rhodes, Hammond, Korg, and other keys – with core bass and drums, and additional help from Lily Latuheru on vocals and Dario Cecchini on flute and saxes! Most tracks are instrumentals, but Lily's soulful tones definitely make the vocal tracks sound great too – and titles include "New Frontier", "Blow Your Mind", "Ivory Skyscrapers", "Bahia Moon", "Berimbau", "Black Jack", and "Song For My Father".

New Tony Hatch & OthersEssential Tony Hatch – Grooves, Hits, & Themes (3CD set) ... CD
Pulse (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 3CD ... $29.99
A really great little set – featuring 3 styles of work by Brit pop legend Tony Hatch! One disc features Hatch doing instrumental work from the 60s – lively renditions of instrumentals and covers, including a few numbers that have gone onto be loungecore classics – tracks like "Soul Coaxing", "Beautiful In The Rain", "Music To Watch Girls By", "Wives & Lovers", "Bedazzled", "Light My Fire", "Birds", "Love Is Blue", "Forget Him", "I Know A Place", and "Crosstown Commuter". Next up is a disc that includes pop hits written or arranged by Tony for other artists – some of the cream of British pop in the 60s!

Tunes on that disc include "Sportsnight", "Ben Casey", "Emmerdale Farm", "Perry Mason", "Crossroads", "The Champion", "Man Alive", "Theme From Who Dun It", "Ghost Squad", "The Naked City", and "Mr & Mrs". 60 tracks, 3CDs – what a deal!

Eremite, 2000. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 19.99
A wonderful follow-up to the incredible New World Pygmies set from saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc and bassist William Parker – one that not only features a double-length set of work, but also includes some guest drums from Hamid Drake on half the set! The core energy still really comes from the Moondoc/Parker pairing, though – a wonderful association that stands brilliantly here as some of the most soulful improvisation from the time – rich in spirit, strong in focus, and almost always swinging – with a balance between freedom and straightness that we really love. Tracks are all quite long – and CD one features a performance from Madison, while CD two features a Chicago set at the Velvet Lounge, with Drake on trap drums. Moondoc plays alto and soprano sax, and in addition to bass, Parker also plays bombard and gralle – on titles that include "Spirit House", "O'Neal's Porch", "New World Pygmies", "Blues For Katie", and "Three Clay Pots".

Don Sebesky handled the arrangements – and players include Herbie Hancock, Ray Barretto, Romeo Penque, and Grady Tate – all playing nicely mellow jazzy tracks, with a flute-heavy sound.

New Johnny Hammond SmithMr Wonderful ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record that definitely lives up to its title – reminding us not only that Johnny Hammond Smith is one hell of an organist, but also a great leader with a really unique feel for a groove! The set's noteworthy not just for Johnny's own work on Hammond, but also for the presence of a young Houston Person – blowing tenor here in a way that's breathtaking right from the start – a bold, soulful tone that's a perfect fit for the group – which also includes trumpet from Johnny Williams and guitar from Eddie McFadden. The set includes a lot of tasty originals by Johnny – like "Cyra", "Lambert's Lounge", "Departure", and "Opus 2" – and already shows the way that Hammond was complicating his groove from that of other players of the time!

Fred's not on the run, he's right at home – working at his own Velvet Lounge in Chicago, and blowing with the relaxed, open vibe that has made his performances at the club the stuff of legend! There's a great linkage here of styles from a few Chicago generations – the proud-toned tenors of the postwar years, and the freer modes of the AACM – played in trio formation by Anderson on tenor, with Tatsu Aoki on bass and Hamid Drake on drums. Most tracks are quite extended, and Anderson's got a great way of skirting the edges of freedom – keeping a soulful focus on his horn on the best moments, with echoes of Johnny Griffin and John Gilmore in his sound. Titles include "Ladies In Love", "On The Run", "Smooth Velvet", "Tatsu's Groove", and "Hamid's On Fire". CD

Roaratorio, Mid 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A second great anthology for "song poems" king Rodd Keith! The song poem racket, back in the day, was service in which amateur poets and song lyricists could send in there songs and poems to put to music for a fee. Keith instills an oddball charm, surprisingly rich musicianship and board stylistic range – from pop, to loungey weirdness, to blue-eyed-soul and beyond. All were cut from the mid 60s to mid 70s – and the titles include "My Pipe Yellow Dream", "Baby, I'll Give It To You", "Bury Me Deep", "Choo Choo Train", "Tired Of Waiting", "Surfing Along", "Deep Velvet", "America The Not So Beautiful", "Love Oipens The Door", "Red Sports Car", "The Watchin' Man", "O Jesus My Savior" and more/ LP, Vinyl record album
