Freewheeling, open-ended work from this vibrantly creative trio – working here in a style that's not unlike some of the more offbeat work on ECM in the early days! And by that, we don't mean the atmospheric sounds – but the rare avant sessions that would show up at the label – particularly the groundbreaking piano work of Paul Bley – as it might be said that Lossing here has a similar feel for sound shapes and circular patterns – a mode that's inherently rhythmic, yet free from most conventional rhythms at the same time! Of course, the other players have a lot to do with that – especially drummer Paul Motian, who's perfect for the set – working here with bassist Ed Schuller, on a set of tracks that features the five-part "Suite Of Time" – plus "Motion Units", "Coyote Jumps", "Nagual", and "Verse".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Ghetto Music
Blue Note/Water, 1968. New Copy
One of our favorite all-time records, and a real lost album on Blue Note! Eddie Gale leads this group of righteous singers and musicians through five fantastic tracks of soulful chanting and hard jazz playing that never goes too far out, but always threatens to break free of its own chains – ... CD
Zitro
ESP, 1967. New Copy
One of the only albums we've ever seen from drummer James Zitro – a player who'd worked as a percussionist for one of the Sonny Simmons' albums on ESP Records, then was invited to cut his own date for the label! There's a really groundbreaking sound here – an approach to percussion ... CD
Spiritual Unity
ESP, 1964. New Copy
CD...$9.99 15.99
A landmark recording – Albert Ayler's first album for the ESP label, and a record that hit the jazz world like a bullet! Spiritual Unity sets the stage for a format that would become huge in the European avant scene of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and even today – the sax-driven power-trio, ... CD
Bantu Village
Blue Note/Soul Brother (UK), 1969. New Copy
One of the funkiest albums ever on Blue Note – a set that mixes the trumpet talents of Blue Mitchell with some killer backings from Monk Higgins – all in a groove that more gritty edges than the best funky soundtracks of the time! Higgins keeps the backings full, but always quite lean ... CD
Liberty/Expansion (UK), 1980/1982. New Copy
Sweet modern soul from Eloise Law – a pair of classic early 80s records together in a single set! First up is her self-titled record, an effort that's a bit in the mode of the Debra Laws album from the same period. Warmly done soul, with rich production touches, but also a bit of a ... CD
Feeling Good
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1982. New Copy
Stellar sounds from the great Roy Ayers – an early 80s album for Polydor, but a set that's still got the wonderfully tight, wonderfully groovy feel of his late 70s albums for the label! Roy's really perfected his sense of balance by this time – and does a great job of balancing ... CD
Let's Do It
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1978. New Copy
Pure magic from the height of Roy Ayers' classic 70s run on Polydor – a record that's filled with warm, jazzy grooves – all served up in that unique style that Roy was forging at the time! The album perfectly balances dancefloor tracks with mellower numbers – stepping out one ... CD
Fever
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned ... CD
