CD


4.90 1

Beautifully percolated grooves from Basic Soul Unit – spare and electronic, yet still surprisingly soulful too – almost like some of the gentler sounds that came around in the second generation of Chicago house, but informed by a 21st Century soul vibe as well! Most numbers have keyboards moving around beats in a really great way – and there's some acid electric touches that are subtle, but which bring a nice sort of retro energy to the set – some moogy brilliance that only gets better and better as the record moves on – almost with a Larry Heard feel in some of the best moments! Titles include "Let Go", "Backseat Lover", "Mind Forest", "Intersection", "All Over Me", "This", "Across The Room", and "Clouds".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Irma (Italy), 2013. New Copy
Mighty keyboards from Francesco Gazzara – easily one of our favorite Irma Records artists from years back – still sounding pretty darn great here in a nicely mature setting! The album's got a bit of the bossa promised in the title, but also has a wider-ranging groove too – echoes ... CD

Green In Blue
High Contrast (Japan), 2013. New Copy
Excellent sounds from this hip Japanese group – a jazzy combo with some mighty strong vibes in the lead – and a range of sweet styles that run from bossa to bop to soul jazz! The instrumentation is all played live, never programmed – and the group have a groove that easily ... CD

Hex
Blue Note (Japan), 2013. New Copy
One of the coolest new Japanese combos we've heard in awhile – a group who have some of the live jamming of the club jazz generation, but who also touch on some of the noisier elements of an earlier generation of Japanese avant players as well! The blend is great – never too free or ... CD

Progressive, 1981. New Copy
An all-flute album from Frank Wess – a great small combo date that really gets at the lyrical modes in Frank's style! Wess had been playing flute on record for over 20 years by the time of this early 80s date – but there's a really special feeling to the album that brings out some of ... CD

Epic (Japan), 1958. New Copy
A great pianist with a really bold sound – strong, fresh, and clean – but without any hoke at all! Dave McKenna's certainly not one of the biggest names in 50s piano jazz, but these sides rival the best in the trio format at the time – a set of familiar tunes and a few lesser-know ... CD

Teddy Wilson's definitely fabulous here – playing with a sense of poise and timing that really links together a number of different piano jazz traditions – no surprise, given how many different scenes Teddy influenced! The setting is simple – just a trio format, with either Al ... CD
