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.

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
