Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2013. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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! The work here comes partly from the great Dome Records label, who put the whole thing together – and partly from other indie imprints that have helped keep soul music strong over the past decade or two – imprints like Expansion, Motema, Mack Avenue, and Reel People – all of whom have turned us on to a lot of great music!

De La SoulDe La Soul Is Dead ... CD
Tommy Boy, 1991. Used ... $6.99
The epic second De La Soul album – a slightly deeper record than the upbeat 3 Feet High And Rising, but to us it's just as irrefutably classic – and among the best hip hop full lengths ever! The trio is still working with Prince Paul, so despite the cover image and declaration of the end of the Daisy age, there's no shortage of humor and bouncing good time hip hop – if a turn tougher. To put it simply, this is one of the many reasons we look a the early 90s as the salad days of hip hop. With "Oodles Of O's", Talkin' Bout Hey Love", "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays", "Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa", "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)", "Keepin' The Faith", "Bitties In The BK Lounge", "Pass The Plugs" and, as was the style at the time, loads of funny skits.

Lefty EdwardsRight Side Of Lefty Edwards ... LP
Workshop Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $36.99
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.)

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 ... $5.99 25.99
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

Don Julian & The LarksShorty The Pimp ... CD
Southbound/Ace (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
Killer funky reissue of this rare soundtrack by Don Julian & The Larks! You probably already know Don Julian's funky work from the Savage soundtrack, and this one's just as good – with even more cuts than the original, including a lot of tasty soul cuts and covers with a deep soulful sound. The plot of the film has Don and The Larks playing a cool little lounge funk band, caught up in sort of a mini gang war between 2 thugs who want to manage them. One of the thug's named "Shorty The Pimp", and his name provides Don with the funky title to the great theme of the film, which is a very tasty groover. Other tracks have the band covering other current soul hits, and playing some extra-dope instrumentals with a nice hard sound. Titles include "Schoolin & Foolin", "Vato's Brew", "Brother What It Is", "Super Slick", "Inner City Blues", "If There's A Hell Below", and "Message From A Black Man". On CD only! CD

Jimmy McGriffOne Of Mine ... CD
Collectables/Sue, Mid 60s. Used ... $7.99
Tightly grooving, jukebox thumping, hard wailing organ jazz from the great Jimmy McGriff – one of his best albums for the Sue label! Jimmy's got a sound here that's a lot rawer than earlier work – especially on the album's originals, like "Spindletop", "One Of Mine", "Blip Time", "Gospel Time", and "The Last Minute" – nice little numbers that cross the bridge between R&B and soul jazz with that heavy approach that always made Jimmy a favorite on the small combo lounge jazz scene of the time. Other tracks include "Teach Me Tonight", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Broadway". CD

Sonny StittSonny Stitt At The DJ Lounge ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good ... $1.99
A classic from Stitt – cut during the underground days of the early 60s, when both he and Gene Ammons seemed to be recording for just about every jazz label around, and when they both seemed to be doing an awful lot of work in Chicago. This album was done in a flurry that Jug and Stitt cut for Argo during 1961 – and it's a Stitt-only session, recorded at the super-hip DJ Lounge, owned by Chicago spinner McKie Fitzhugh down at the intersection of 63rd and Cottage Grove. The group's an organ combo, with Eddie Buster on the Hammon, Joe Shelton on drums, and John Board joining in for a bit more tenor. (Interesting to note is the fact that Board made a number of classic soul session appearances later on in the decade – but this is one of his few jazz recordings.) The set's very hard-grooving – with longish tracks that let Stitt and Board go head to head in the same style he was used to with Ammons. Titles include "McKies", "Jay Tee", "Free Chicken", and "Blue Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... $54.99 59.98
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 Lou DonaldsonFried Buzzard ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 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 Koki Hanawa & Yusuke OgawaJapanese Jazz 1950s to 1980s (paperback) ... Book
Rittor (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... 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.

Fred AndersonOn The Run – Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD
Delmark, 2000. Used ... $9.99
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

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

Irma (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

Roaratorio, Mid 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $15.99
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

A wonderful tribute to Fred Anderson and the creative sanctuary he provided in Chicago at his Velvet Lounge – done wonderfully by saxophonist Ernest Dawkins and his New Horizons Ensemble! The group brilliantly trades in soulful, melodious interplay and sharp left turns into abstractions and a freer improved interplay – truly wonderful stuff and a fitting tribute to spirit of both tradition and creative freedom that could be heard at the Velvet. The Ensemble features a pair of trumpets – courtesy Marquis Hill and Shaun Johnson – plus Steve Berry on trombone, Jeff Parker on guitar, Junius Paul on bass and Isaiah Spencer on drums. Titles include "Hymn For A Hip King", "Sketches", "Mal-Lester", "Shades Of The Prairie Project", "Baghdad Boogie", "Mesopotamia" and more. CD

Moddish touches abound, with some rocking soul & pop backing in the rolling drums, trippy organ washes, horn punctuation and girl backing vocals! Really cheeky stuff and good fun!

New Ahmad JamalComplete Live At The Pershing Lounge 1958 (But Not For Me/Jamal At The Pershing Vol 2) ... CD
Argo/Gambit (Spain), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groundbreaking work from the legendary Ahmad Jamal – not just in his own career, but in live jazz in general! The album's a classic recording of Jamal's trio with Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums – captured at the Pershing Lounge on the south side of Chicago, where Jamal was clearly wowing the crowd with his amazing talents on the piano. The groove here is sublimely fluid and soulful – clearly the next wave of expression on the piano in the 50s, and as important to the Chicago scene as Bill Evans was to that of New York at the time. The recording quality is wonderful – clear enough to capture the subtleties of Crosby's amazing bass, and the lightly tippling sound of Fournier's drums – and the CD features both volumes of this historic set, a total of 20 tracks in all. Titles include a classic extended reading of "Poinciana", plus "What's New", "But Not For Me", "Billy Boy", "All The Things You Are", "Woody N You", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "It's You Or No One", and "No Greater Love". Also features the bonus single version of "Poinciana". CD

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.

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!

Great little bit of lost Chicago grooviness. Not only is this a fantastic record by a tight group led by the legendary reedman Sonny Cox, but the cover and title bear reference to the Dan Ryan Expressway, which ripped through the south side like a scar in the early 60's. The cover's got the band crouching by the side of the road, with cars whizzing by to illustrate the "dangerous" side of the title. The music is excellent tight organ/alto/guitar jazz, as was being played in the best lounges of the city at the time. A few great originals, and some excellent jazz standards. LP, Vinyl record album

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".
