CD


4.80 5

Soaring, righteous sounds from Elvin Jones – an early 80s session, but one that cooks as strongly as his most soulful albums from the 70s! In fact, there's almost a focus or tightness here that could sometimes be missing from other Jones albums – a really bold, sharp use of the group's excellent quintet lineup – Dave Liebman on soprano sax and flute, Terumasa Hino on cornet, George Mraz on bass, and Kenny Kirkland on piano – all players driven on by the kind of bold, never-ending sense of flow that Jones really picked up during his post-Coltrane years! Liebman and Hino are especially great – and titles include "Three Card Molly", "The Top Of The Middle", "Earth Jones", "Never Let Me Go" and "Day & Night".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

CD...$4.99 11.98
Rock-solid live material from the classic Cannonball Adderley Sextet – a combo who could usually groove even better on a concert date then they could in the studio! The album's one of a number of key live sides from Cannon in the 60s – and although it pre-dates his work on Capitol, it's ... CD

Jazzland/OJC, 1961. New Copy
CD...$6.99 11.98
Junior's definitely cooking on this session – working with trumpeter Blue Mitchell at a time when both players were members of the Horace Silver Quintet – but in a groove that's somewhat different than the Silver sound overall! Junior Cook's tenor really is tremendous on the record ... CD

Jonah Jones/Ivy Pete & His Limbomaniacs
Alma, Mid 60s. New Copy
An unusual combination of records – both pretty darn great! First up is Jazz Tropical from Jonah Jones – one of the coolest albums ever from this legendary trumpeter – a set that's got a strongly Latin flavor, and which provides a very unique setting for Jonah's horn! The ... CD

Transcendence
Motema, 2013. New Copy

Pedrito Martinez Group
Motema, 2013. New Copy
Pedrito Martinez has a mighty cooking combo on this set – only a quartet, but a group that's more than strong enough to serve up some plenty powerful Latin jazz rhythms – which are then augmented by help from a host of famous guest stars! Pedrito's percussion is at the core of every ... CD

Top Soul
Alba/Lion, 1975. New Copy
Top Soul indeed, as Fusion is a hip Chilean funk band from the early 70s – one who take plenty of influence from American grooves, but also bring in their own soulful elements as well! The sound here is somewhere between Kool & The Gang and Banda Black Rio – with quite a bit of the ... CD

Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the coolest music we've ever heard from Tomeka Reid – a soundtrack for a film based on the Chicago school of imagist painting in the 60s – nicely scored with music from the windy city itself! Reid composed the different selections on the soundtrack – most of which are ... CD

Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1998. New Copy Gatefold
The strings have it – in this sweet little set from bassists Peter Kowald and Kent Kessler, and the great Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello! The combination of instruments is wonderful – very free, but often quite tuneful nonetheless – as each player seems to glide between rhythm and ... CD

Loose Wig/Beatball (Korea), 1982. New Copy
Jazzy soul with plenty of warmth – a great album by this little-known group from Ohio! The combo started out as a fusion group, but then moved into some soulful territory when they picked up a vocalist – singer Ron Boustead, who gives the record a style that reminds us a lot of Average ... CD
