Heavy Hammond from the mighty Chester Thompson – a smoking soul jazz set that's a real return to the sound of his Powerhouse album from the 70s! Thompson's jazz chops have only gotten better with age – and although he's certainly got a strong resume in funk and soul, we're really impressed at his dexterity on the organ here – working out these quick changes and long-spun lines that would be right at home on mid-60s Prestige Records! Yet most of the tunes are nice and tight, too – never too overindulgent, and a nice balance between groove and solo space as well . Thompson works here with Barry Finnerty on guitar, Joel Behrman on trumpet, and Howard Wiley on tenor – and Lonnie Smith guests on one track too! Titles include "Medallion", "Clockwise", "A Subtle One", "Sweet Sixteen", "Speak No Evil", "Sista Strut", "Mr T", and a nice version of "Moontrane".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2001. New Copy
A raw, live set from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – but a great little record that really reminds us of a classic 60s session on ESP! Boykin's reeds are wonderful throughout – filled with the depth of soul we might expect from Kalaparusha or Albert Ayler – and set up here in ... CD

Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
One of Billy Paul's greatest albums ever – or perhaps the greatest! The record is an amazing blend of soul, jazz, and a soaring sense of spiritualism that's not only rare for Billy Paul – but which makes the record sound different than any other Philly International LP from the time! ... CD
