Prepare yourself to discover a funky jazz genius! We don't know much about Bernard except that he was French – but this CD's a stunner, and is filled with the kind of funky little gems that we always try to find on European jazz and studio library albums. There's lots of late 60s mod touches – like organ, electric piano, and even a bit of electric harpsichord – and the record kind of sounds like funky French backings for a pop record from the same time. Titles include "Le Pain, Le Vin", "De Temps En Temps", "Autoscopie", "Cha Tatch Ka", "Monsieur Detour", "Bave A Roi", and "Meut's Boogie".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Janko Nilovic, 2005. New Copy
Great recent work from the legendary Janko Nilovic – an artist that most folks know best for his sound library sessions of the 70s, still sounding great here in a jazz trio mode! Nilovic plays Yamaha keyboards, in a trio that features both acoustic and electric bass, and percussion as well ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1958. New Copy
A great little album that's every bit as wonderful as you might expect from its cover – one of the key late 50s sides as a leader from bassist Curtis Counce – cut with a killer lineup that includes Harold Land on tenor sax, Rolf Ericson on trumpet, and Elmo Hope on piano! The set's got ... CD
Flight For Four (LP sleeve edition)
Flying Dutchman/International Phonograph, 1969. New Copy Gatefold
Spectacular work from one of the most groundbreaking groups of its time – the legendary John Carter/Bobby Bradford Quartet – quite possibly the hippest thing going in the LA scene of the late 60s! The group includes Carter on alto and tenor, Bradford on trumpet – working together ... CD
Dootone/Boplicity (UK), 1956. New Copy
One of the few albums as a leader cut by legendary LA pianist Carl Perkins – an amazing talent on his instrument, and one who had an unusual "sideways" approach to the keys! Perkins kind of leaned alongside the piano – so that his body was parallel to the instrument, and his ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1957. New Copy
One of the best albums ever from reedman Buddy Collette – a great small group session with a harder edge than some of Buddy's later records for bigger labels! Collette was always one of the more interesting players from the LA scene of the 50s – and although he had his roots in harder ... CD
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
Deodato 2
CTI, 1973. New Copy
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – ... CD
Reality (with bonus track)
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy
A really sweet set from bassist Monk Montgomery – the Indy jazz legend who first made big waves with his brothers Wes and Buddy in the 50s – still sounding great here on a funky album for Philly International! The album's mostly instrumental, but done in the same great groove as the ... CD
