Birth Of The Groove – CTI Records

CD (Item 82376) CTI, 1970s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 13

A well-done collection of grooves from the legendary CTI Records – home to some of the most important jazz funk of the 70s! The set does a good job of getting past the familiar hits from the label, and moves into territory that showed the complexity of the grooves being laid down – a depth that's sometimes overlooked, given the success of CTI. The nicely-priced set features 10 tracks in all – including "Hard To Face The Music" by Idris Muhammad, "September 13" by Deodato, "Canned Funk" by Joe Farrell, "Rock Steady" by Johnny Hammond, "I'm Not So Sure" by Milt Jackson, "Hurtin House" by Esther Phillips, "Sugar Free" by Hank Crawford, "Shoogie Wanna Boogie" by Dave Matthews, "I Remember Wes" by George Benson, and "Storm" by Stanley Turrentine.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
The headier sound of Blue Note Records – served up in a batch of tracks that focus on that late 60s period when the label started to open up into a much more righteous groove! The styles here are very much in step with the most progressive cultural movements in the US at the time – and ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1970s. New Copy
Some of the best-remembered cuts from the legendary CTI Records of the 70s – all tracks that have been sampled over the years, thanks to their funky breaks and amazing grooves! CTI and Kudu have been reissued plenty in recent years, but we'll honestly say that this is one of the hippest sets ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy
Masterpiece is a big claim to make – but the cuts on this set may well live up to that claim – at least within the realm of early 80s soul music! Every track here is near-perfect in its approach – a lean summation of beats, keys, and snapping rhythms – often peppered with ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy
Sublime 80s grooves – a wealth of wonderful cuts that really represent the best aspects of mainstream soul music in the decade after the 70s – tracks that are definitely leaner than a few years before, and which use all their best energy to step to the dancefloor with some tight hooks ... CD
Mod Jazz
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
One of our favorite compilations of all time – a smoking batch of soulful jazz from the 60s, with a slight bit of funk and blues thrown in as well! The set's exactly what's promised in the title – jazz cuts, but with an ultra-cool mod vibe – the kind of soulful sounds that played ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy
A killer little set that's as heavy as it sounds from the title – a wealth of rare material pulled from the studio of Detroit producer Dave Hamilton – a good deal of it previously unreleased! Hearing this set is like finding a pile of rare 45s stuffed in the back corner of a long-lost ... CD
Baltimore 1969
Uptown, 1969. New Copy
A much-needed recording of the late 60s big band of pianist Duke Pearson – an amazing ensemble who only recorded just a bit for Blue Note – and who really shine here in this rare concert performance! The set was recorded as part of the legendary late 60s run of concerts for Baltimore's ... CD
