An overlooked gem from Ramsey's 70s years at Columbia – a record that has him grooving over larger arrangements, sweeping along in a great blend of soul and class that makes for some really great numbers! Side one of the album features Ramsey playing keyboards on the extended "Legacy" suite – a long piece composed and conducted by James Mack, which has Ramsey running through a lot of different moods and modes – some of them nice and funky! Side two features some nice shorter tracks – all electric groovers with plenty of funky keys! Titles include "Moogin On", "Don't Look Back", "Well Well Well", and "All The Way Live".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Jazz FM (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
A nicely done compilation of pivotal work from the great Ramsey Lewis – focusing on his work for Columbia/CBS Records from the 70s and early 80s – and very well chosen at that! Of course the title comes from Ramsey's iconic album of the same name, and this 2CD set features a few tracks ... CD

CBS/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs
A Japanese-only album from Weather Report – recorded early in the group's career, and with some of the same sort of freedoms that Miles Davis was getting on his own double-length dates from Japan! The tracks here are quite stretched out, and often adventurous – showing a marked ability ... CD

Family
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1980. New Copy
Wonderful sounds from Hubert Laws – and like some of his best CTI work of a few years before, a set that really goes way beyond any easy expectations! There's moments of ambition here that really link the record to Laws' CTI sides – that mix of fuller arrangements and higher-concept ... CD

BMG/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy
Sweet fusion grooving from Jeff Lorber – going strong here in a tight early 80s mode that combines jazz and R&B with effortless ease! The leadoff title track is a catchy groover, done with lead vocals by Jeff and Maurice Starr – but most of the other tracks on the set are ... CD

With Sound Reason
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy
We love Sonny Fortune – because he always plays so great! Sonny started as more of an acoustic soul jazz player – but by the time of this session, he's working with a lot of electric backing, in a fusiony mode that should dampen his enthusiasm, but which only seems to spur him onto new ... CD

Columbia (Japan), 1960. New Copy
JJ Johnson's greatest album – without a doubt! This gem of a session was recorded in 1960 in New York, with an incredibly hip sextet that includes Cedar Walton, Clifford Jordan, and Freddie Hubbard. The tracks are all long, hip, and very much in a Blue Note soul jazz mode – very ... CD

Beautiful work from trombonist Shigeharu Mukai – and just the kind of record that shows how strongly he was pushing the development of his instrument in the 70s! The set's got a mix of sounds and shapes from the leader that are completely sublime – soulful and thoughtful, carved out of ... CD

Bossa Nova USA
Columbia (Japan), 1962. New Copy
Way more than just a gimmicky bossa nova session – and a surprisingly great showcase for the inventive rhythms of the Brubeck group, and the sensitive alto work of Paul Desmond! The record's got a really different feel than some of Dave's other work for Columbia – in that the modernism ... CD

Little Susie
Columbia (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy
Hard-hitting trio work from Ray – one of his early albums for Columbia, and the record that gave him a surprisingly big hit! "Little Susie" is one of those early 60s soul jazz standards, the kind of catchy tune that got played all over the place on radio, and which forever put the ... CD

Original Mob
Smoke Sessions, 2014. New Copy
Drummer Jimmy Cobb works here with his Original Mob – a quartet that's been together for over 20 years, and which features a well-matched lineup of Peter Bernstein on guitar, Brad Mehldau on piano, and John Webber on bass! Bernstein's sharp, tight guitar lines are really appreciated in a ... CD

For All We Know
Smoke Sessions, 2014. New Copy
Pianist David Hazeltine always sounds great in a trio, but we love him even more with a horn player – as on this session with Seamus Blake on tenor! The pairing of players seems to give Blake the sort of sharp, soulful focus we love best for his instrument – a rock-solid, soulfully-groo ... CD
