4.80 5

A beautiful title, and a record that really lives up to it too – filled with evocative piano lines from Murray McNabb – a really great player with a strong sense of flow! The session's an overlooked one – finally out now – and it's got the feel of some lost classic from the Bill Evans school, although maybe with a bit more bite – given that Murray's got an inherent modal groove to his work on the piano, especially when rhythms kick in strongly – from Ron McClure on bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums. Tunes are all McNabb originals – and are some really beautiful compositions that ring out with soul and feeling throughout – real gems that include "Instant Bossa", "Dark Windows", "Recurring Dream", "The Long Walk Home", "Memorial", and "Song For The Dream Weaver".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An album that may be worth it for just one track alone – although the whole thing is pretty darn great all the way through! We love the work that Slide Hampton cut overseas in the 70s – and this album's no exception, as it features this majestic 16 minute reading of Hampton's "To ... CD

Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... CD
Derby/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy
Easily one of the coolest, hippest, and most soulful records that Billy Preston ever cut – very different both from his famous work on A&M, and his early sides for Apple and Vee Jay – and done with a raw groove that makes each cut feel like some rare funky 45! The style here is a ... CD
