Seminal soul from one of Chicago's greatest labels in the 60s – the One-Der-Ful/Mar-V-Lus imprints, plus tracks from related Toddlin Town too – home to some of the best indie work at the time! The quality here is right up there with the best you'd hear from Chess, Okeh, or Brunswick in ... CD
Jimmy Castor bursts forward here with a definite supersound – a groove that's different than his fuzzier work for RCA Records, but still equally funky throughout! Castor's still quite the multi-instrumentalist on the record – as in addition to singing lead, he plays plenty of soprano ... CD

The continuing evolution of Terence Blanchard – a trumpeter who's had a great sense of restraint in recent recordings – which makes each new musical moment a very nice surprise! This is the first small group set we've heard from Terence in a number of years – and it's got a fresh ... CD
