A monster set of work by one of the funkiest guitar players ever! Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones recorded a number of sides for Prestige Records during the early 70s – but this rare gem came out after all those, in 1975, on the tiny Joka label, and never really got into proper circulation at the time – making it one of THE indie jazz funk classics of the 70s! The album's actually one of Boogaloo's best – and has a rougher edge than his Prestige albums – heard to great effect on the two standout funky cuts, "Sweetback" and "Confusion" – both of which are stunners that feature Jones really ripping away on the guitar! The whole set's nice, though – and other tracks include "You've Got It Bad Girl", "Trouble In Mind", and "Jamaica Farewell".

Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible album from the man that changed the way the world hears the Hammond!

Taru
Blue Note, 1968/1980. New Copy (reissue)

Deep Night
Numero, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A wild little record from the hinterlands of rural Illinois in the early 80s – a set that's got a vibe that's quite different than most other albums of its time – more in a sunny, folksy, early 70s Cali mode than the darker sounds that were coming out of Chicago during the same stretch! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, 1974. New Copy Gatefold
An amazing musical discovery – the lost second album from 24 Carat Black – recorded right after the band's legendary debut for Stax Records, but unissued for over 30 years!
