One of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago's all-time classics! If you've ever bought an Art Ensemble album and said "Hmm, what's all the fuss about?", get this one. It'll change your mind. The band is in perfect form – and hits an incredible blend of free thinking modernism and soulful soloing, peppered with a healthy dose of humor. The tracks are shortish, and very tight – and titles include "Jackson In Your House", "Song For Charles", "The Waltz", and "Get In Line".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

For The Good Times
Prestige, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of Rusty Bryant's last albums for Prestige – recorded in that more-electric mode that graced the label's albums of the year 1973 – but in a style that's still pretty darn nice! The group's still a small combo – with Rusy on tenor and alto, plus with Hank Jones on electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cadet, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Madly tripped out guitar funk – and a real turning point in the career of guitarist Eddie Fisher! Eddie began his career as a straighter guitarist on the St Louis scene – and although his first album for Cadet was a relatively traditional soul-jazz outing, this one's a wild batch of ...

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 ...

Trunk (UK), 1963. New Copy
A wonderful jazz soundtrack from the legendary Kenny Graham – the important postwar Brit bandleader who was known for his seminal Afro-Cubists group – heard here in a much different context!

An amazing little record – not only a fab 60s soundtrack, but a rare non-Blue Note 60s album by Herbie Hancock! The set was recorded for the film Blow Up – an incredibly dark thriller by Michaelangelo Antonioni, set in swinging London of the 60s, which provided a very groovy backdrop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Party Knullers Meets Jim Baker – Four Images Of Wank
Hispid (Norway), 2013. New Copy
Jim Baker plays some pretty great analog synth here – which is mixed with both electronics and cello from Fred Lonberg-Holm – with similar acoustic-sounding elements that really link the players' performances together nicely! The music is improvised with a rich sense of texture and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pourquoi
Trad Vibe (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A lost later slice of work from Cortex – a bit tighter than some of the group's previous albums, but equally funky overall! There's a bit less jamming here than before, the Cortex have definitely developed an ear for the dancefloor – a jazzy funk style that would be perfect in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording!

Isis Voyage
Outrageous/Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy 2LP

Hardly a free for all at all – as the album's a masterpiece of focus and direction, and a classic set from the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers! The album's a real feather in the mid-60s cap of Art Blakey –and features an expanded sound from the quintet era of his group – ... LP, Vinyl record album
