Eddie Fisher — Third Cup ... LP 14.99

An amazing album by the great guitarist Eddie Fisher – and completely unlike his later funk records! Eddie plays stripped down jazz with a small combo that includes organ by Robert Selby, bass by Paul Jackson, and some rhythm guitar by Phil Westmoreland – and the twin-guitar approach creates this super-dope style that's light years ahead of its time, with a sophistication that points the way to later mid 70s work on labels like CTI and Kudu! Eddie's guitar work is an incredible exercise in spareness and soulfulness – best heard on the fantastic "Third Cup", a long drawn-out jazz stepper that's got to be heard to be believed. The cut's been a favorite on the Chicago jazz stepper's scene for years – and it alone is worth the price of the album. However, the record features some other wonderful stuff – like a sublime version of "Shadow Of Your Smile" that runs for a bubbling 12 minutes – plus the originals "Shut Up", "Scorched Earth", and "Two By Two".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

World Of Cecil Taylor
Candid, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
Cecil Taylor's first LP for the Candid label – and a landmark album that really lets him open up for the first time in years at a recording session!

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

Got To Get Your Own
Cadet, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Monster funk from Hammond hero Reuben Wilson – an album of hard-burning, bad-walking tunes that are a fair bit different than most of his other work!

Caravan
Riverside/OJC, 1962. New Copy (reissue)

Standard Coltrane
Prestige/OJC, 1958. New Copy (reissue)
The title may say "standard", but with Coltrane at the helm, the record is anything but! Sure, the tunes are all familiar ones, but the presentation here is a far cry from mainstream piano jazz of the 50s – as John's working in a group with the Red Garland trio for rhythm, as well ...

Prestige, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Soulful and pounding! Joe Dukes is one of the greatest soul jazz drummers ever – the key to the unique sound that Jack McDuff had during his big rise to fame in the mid 60s, a combination of tightly funky rhythms underneath, with a freer approach to the top of the kit that worked perfectly ...

Reawakening
Rebirth/Tribe, 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Later work from reedman Wendell Harrison and the Tribe Records scene – a set that's got a slightly tighter feel than some of his earlier work, but still a relatively soulful vibe overall!

Moving Along
Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
One of the rare few albums cut by this legendary South African group of the 70s – a set that's still got all the jazzy inflections of their previous records, but which also brings in a bit more soul and funk as well! The ensemble are wonderfully tight, but still have a sense of looseness ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s. New Copy
A great selection of very early calypso work – all recorded in Trinidad, originally issued on 78s, and with a very different sound than later, more popular versions of the genre! These tracks have a great gritty feel, and lots of jazzy inflections next to the vocals – echoes of other ... LP, Vinyl record album
