One of the greatest records ever cut by the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra – way way more than a big band jazz session, and a fantastically hip batch of grooves that encompasses a wealth of styles! The Jones/Lewis group could sometimes sound a bit clunky and overhashed – but on this set, they've got a surprisingly lyrical approach – free-thinking and easily grooving, but with room for complicated solos and complex rhythms. All tracks are originals by Thad Jones – and players include Roland Hanna on electric piano, David Spinozza on guitar, and a host of great talents on reeds and brass. Titles include the sweetly funky cuts "Us" and "Ahunk Ahunk", plus the tracks "Dedication", "Consummation", "Tiptoe", and "Fingers". (70s pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kudu, 1975. Very Good+
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever!

Impulse, 1964/1976. Near Mint-
One of the greatest albums ever from Yusef Lateef – even if it's sometimes overlooked! The album was issued in the 70s, but it features material from the famous Live At Pep's concert in 1964 – but which didn't appear on that initial record. In fact, it's arguably a lot hipper than ...
