Roy Ayers — Virgo Vibes ... LP 9.99

A great set of straight jazz from Roy, recorded for Atlantic, and with a feel that's a lot edgier than some of his other work from the time! The groups on the record feature some of the hippest soul jazz players of the time – including Charles Tolliver, Jack Wilson, Joe Henderson, Harold Land, and Reggie Workman – and the feel of the material is almost a precursor to the Strata East sound of the 70s. Tracks are long and spiritual – and titles include "Glow Flower", "Ayerloom", and Charles Tolliver's "The Ringer". Plus, this CD also features 2 bonus tracks – previously unissued – "Mine Royd" and "Number Seven"!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Suddenly The Blues
Atlantic (Japan), 1962. New Copy
A record of incredible beauty from the great Leo Wright – and one that we'd never part with at all! Wright's one of those excellent players from the 60s who never really gets his due – largely because he was always hiding behind larger groups, and because he left the US in the decade ... CD
