Cannonball Adderley — Soul Zodiac ... LP 24.99

One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling all the way through – a darkly brooding batch of funky jazz that shows a strong Miles Davis electric influence at points, thanks to Nat Adderley's spacey trumpet lines, Mike Deasy's trippy guitar, and George Duke's excellent keyboards! Other tracks are a bit more laidback, fitting the mood of their respective signs – and overall, the whole thing slips and slides wonderfully from cut to cut – taking you through the star signs with a really righteous, soulful approach. Titles include "Cancer", "Sagittarius", "Pisces", "Aquarius", "Capricorn", "Virgo", "Taurus", "Aries", "Libra", and a special "Introduction".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Chiaroscuro, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark New York session from Dollar Brand – recorded in the late 70s, with a larger group than usual!

Groove Merchant, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
The butt-squeezing cover should be enough to let you know that this is one funky album – but if that doesn't get the message across, the grooves certainly do!

Cosmos
Inner City, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
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! The instrument's a very weird one – kind of like a messed-up electric piano, with lots of cool broken notes and a weird ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Sweet and funky organ work from the great Henry Cain – a little known player who recorded on some excellent sides for Capitol in the 60s, including some of the albums by Howard Roberts!

Blue Note/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of our favorite all-time records, and a real lost album on Blue Note!

Live At The 1971 American College Jazz Festival
Jazzstronauts/Family Groove, 1971. New Copy
A set that's gotta be one of the most righteous school band records ever – way more than just a bunch of students doing big band numbers, and instead a killer batch of spiritual jazz numbers, directed by the legendary Alvin Batiste! The record's one of a rare few 70s sets of this nature ... LP, Vinyl record album

Trinity
CJR/Bo Weavil (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of Joe McPhee's strongest early albums – and a real breakthrough from his sound on Nation Time!

CJR/Bo Weavil (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Joe McPhee's first record – the start of an amazing legacy in jazz, even if the original pressing was only issued in a small number of copies! Even at this early stage, Joe's showing a strong musical vision – working in a style that moves off the New York avant scene of the 60s, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
