They're not kidding about the title of this album – given that Owen Marshall's pictured in the nude on the back cover – in various photos that show him nakedly playing keyboard, flute, and working a tape machine – all to come up with the amazing sounds on the record! Many tracks feature these cool overdubs – really trippy electronics mixed with Fender Rhodes, alto sax, and flute – often just handled by Owen himself, with some occasional added percussion from other players – all in a blend that stretches from spiritual to spacey, always with a very hypnotic feel! The album's one of the most unique records to come from the American underground of the time – and is well worth all the attention it's been getting over the years – a rare set that's as fascinating from a conceptual standpoint as it is groovy from a musical one. Titles include "Planet Funk", "Peanut Butter Ice Cream Man", "Nana's Sleeping", "Ancient Astronauts", "Casa Del Soul", and "Winter Butterfly". CD features 2 bonus tracks from a single – "Evolve" and "Grunt Uh Uh Uh".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Posi tone, 2014. New Copy
Jared Gold's Hammond trio is nicely augmented here by three other horn players – as you might guess from the album's title! Gold's Hammond is one of the best things going for the Posi-Tone label these days – and a perfect fit for their old school style of recording – a mode that's ... CD

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2001. New Copy
A raw, live set from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – but a great little record that really reminds us of a classic 60s session on ESP! Boykin's reeds are wonderful throughout – filled with the depth of soul we might expect from Kalaparusha or Albert Ayler – and set up here in ... CD

Live At The Velvet Lounge
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2005. New Copy
"Expanse" is a mighty big name for the group that David Boykin uses on this record – especially given that the combo's only a quintet – but that's ok with us, because the sound here is more than large enough to warrant the name! Boykin's working with a great batch of players ... CD

Bloom
Savant, 2014. New Copy
JD Allen just gets more and more deft with each new release – able to craft these sharp, angular lines on tenor sax that seem to spill effortlessly out of his horn – yet all with this wonderfully spontaneous quality too! Allen's lead is a great match for the album's piano work from ... CD

Golden Child
Posi tone, 2012. New Copy
A great setting for the Hammond of Jared Gold – a spare, stripped-down trio with Ed Cherry on guitar and Quincy Davis on drums – a group who hit with the sort of punch you'd find on an old Don Patterson record! Gold's one of our favorite contemporary organists – and really has a ... CD
