4.90 5

A wicked wicked set of tracks from Japan – one that blends together jazzy riffing and Brazilian rhythms, all played with a surprisingly soulful bent! Suzuki's on bass and piccolo bass, and Yamamoto plays not only electric piano but also a bit of electric harpsichord – which adds a cool feel to the album, and one that's almost like some lost European soundtrack. Rhythms are mostly in a breezy sort of style that mixes samba with bossa jazz – and Donald Bailey is in the group on drums, providing some very nice bottom to the set. The whole thing's great, with a really unique style – one that's so great it even transforms older numbers like "Night & Day", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Greensleeves", and "La Vie En Rose". Also features an especially great take on Michel Colombier's "Overture"!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kudu/King (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of Lonnie Smith's rarest albums – and one of the most obscure records on the landmark Kudu label! The set is one of Smith's most far-reaching from the 70s – a bit in the mode of his earlier records for Blue Note, but with a slightly sweeter quality that shows the shift to Kudu ... CD
Cherry
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy
One of the best CTI albums from the early 70s – and one of Stanley Turrentine's funkiest records as well! The album's got a sharper edge than most other Turrentine albums of the time – a quality that goes beyond Stan's already soulful approach to the tenor, and which brings in some ... CD
Second Spring
Aerophonic, 2013. New Copy
An amazing showcase for the reed talents of musician Dave Rempis – working here on alto, tenor, and baritone sax – alongside some powerful drum work from Tim Daisy! The duets are great – unbridled, but still with a sense of structure that really shows Rempis' careful execution of ... CD
Aphelion
Aerophonic, 2013. New Copy
A trio of tracks by a tremendous trio – the wonderfully spiritual combo of Dave Rempis on saxes, Avreeayl Ra on percussion, and Joshua Abrams on bass, small harp, and guimbri! Abrams' presence is really felt here – and his growth towards even more soulful styles in recent years seems ... CD
Lift Off
Arista/Wounded Bird, 1985. New Copy
A really wonderful collection of early work from Jeff Lorber – indie cuts from his years on the Inner City label, brought together here as a single LP! The material is really classic material from the Jeff Lorber group of the late 70s – a sweet fusion set with lots of soulful edges, ... CD
Caprice (Sweden), 1968/1971. New Copy Gatefold
Never heard music from Don Cherry's important time in Sweden – two different live recordings that explode with righteous power right from the very first note! Cherry really took off musically during his time in Sweden – exploring rich new ideas that had never come up in his music with ... CD
Starclimber
Muse, 1982. New Copy
An overlooked fusion set from the mighty Muse Records – an early 80s date recorded under the leadership of keyboardist Mitch Farber, and featuring work from Randy Brecker on trumpet, Gary Campbell on tenor and soprano, and Steve Khan on guitar! Given the players, there's almost a major label ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy
A tremendous collection of work from the great Betty Swann – a hell of a soul singer who'd recorded previously for the Money and Capitol Records, but who really hit her height on this string of 70s singles for Atlantic Records! Betty never cut a full album for the label, so this period is a ... CD
Free Angela
Sound Of Soul/Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy
An incredibly righteous bit of soul – one of the few albums ever cut by 70s mellow soul genius Larry Saunders, and an amazing tribute to Angela Davis! Larry's got a fantastic voice – one that we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway or Marvin Gaye, and which is recorded here with ... CD
