Stunning vocal work by this hip late 60s group – the ultra-groovy Jumping Jacques, a vocal ensemble who really knew how to swing! The group feature male/female voices blended in a style that's reminiscent of some of the best European 60s soundtracks – harmonizing in a mode that's jazzy, but also infused with some very mod touches, snapping along in grooves that dip and turn nicely, with some very swinging moments. Place these guys right next to the best work by Les Double Six, I Cantori Modern, The Gimmicks, or Brasil 66 – but give them a lot of credit for their unique and psychedelic approach to the style, making a record like this mad work that's uniquely their own! Titles include "Chili Peppers", "Haunted House", "Double Francoise", "La Terre Le Ciel Et L'Eau", "Lucinda", "Just A Little Midnight Swim", and "Whispering".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Brother Where Are You
Atlantic (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth! Brown's still a hell of a songwriter, and one with a very socially-conscious eye – sharper here than before, with lots of ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, Mid 50s. New Copy

Steppin' Out
Shout Factory, 2013. New Copy Gatefold
A great groove from Herb Alpert – and a set that almost returns him back to his best fusion styles of the 70s! Lani Hall's billed on the title of this one, but only sings on a handful of tracks – leaving most of the set to focus on Herb's sweet trumpet lines, out front of backings that ... CD

Cadet/Verve, 1973. New Copy
Possibly the greatest album ever by the legendary Chicago soul singer Terry Callier!

The songs are longer than on earlier albums – ... CD
