Really lovely work from Nicole Mitchell – an artist who's really been blowing our minds in recent years – working in a wide variety of styles, all of them great! This set has Nicole blowing solo flute, but in a setting that appears to have her on two different versions of the instrument, overdubbed – which creates this incredible sound that's airy, yet lyrical – and filled with a deep soul, even amidst some of the gentler tones! The music is pretty free, but pretty tuneful too – and it's a beautifully personal side of Nicole's music, yet one that's also put together with a bit more straightforward energy than some of her other albums like this. Titles include "Beehive", "Six Wings", "Song Of Suchness", "Desert Choir", "Blue Mountain", "Dadwee", "Forest Family", and "Cave Of Forgotten Spring".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

San Francisco Concert
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1976. New Copy
Really wonderful work from Hubert Laws – maybe one of his greatest albums for CTI! The record has a laidback feel that's similar to most of Laws' other work for the label, but somehow the live setting also brings out a bit more edge – and gives the record a gently funky groove that's ... CD

CBS/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs

Solar/P-Vine (Japan), 1983. New Copy
A beautiful, beautiful little record – as righteous and soulful as some of the best spiritual jazz classics of the 70s – and arguably even rarer, as it was only issued on a tiny label from Atlanta! Solar have a sound that uses 3 female lead vocalists in chorus formation – one ... CD
