Great tenor sounds from Wayne Escoffery – set to an excellent groove that mixes Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano! The album's one of the best we've heard from Escoffery in years – a date that really sets his horn free, yet also has a soulful focus, too – one that definitely comes from the Rhodes, handled by Orrin Evans, plus more keyboards from Adam Holzman. Basslines – from Hans Glawischnig and Ricky Rodrigues – are nice and warm, and often quite mellow – and Jason Brown's drums have this subtle approach that really lets the tenor and keyboards take the lead. Titles include "World Of The Bardo", "Banishment Of The Lost Spirit", "If I Am Who You Are", "Selena's Song", and "Presumed Innocence" – plus "Two Souls", which features Escoffery on soprano, blowing spontaneously alongside acoustic piano from Evans.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Shanachie, 2013. New Copy
The cover's a bit cheesy, but the sound is right on the money – very much in the best spirit of Pieces Of A Dream that we've loved all these years – and not far at all from the group's great roots! The jazz is smooth and soulful – with loads of great keyboards from Curtis Harmon, ... CD
Tres Cabacas Loucuras
Cuneiform, 2011. New Copy
The third and best album yet from Sao Paulo Underground – formed by Chicago scene veteran and sonic adventurer Rob Mazurek – with a sound that's informed by the rhythms and creatively boundless possibilities of Tropicalia era Brazil and well beyond, along with the cosmic spirit of other ... CD
Kenya/Shout (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A very hip group from the 70s Philly scene – a jazz combo who've got a soulful swing and a wonderfully lyrical feel! The record has a bit of vocals, but really just added in as flavoring for the quartet's excellent instrumental interplay – a blend of tenor and flute with piano, bass, ... CD

Nimbus, 1988. New Copy
Pianist Curtis Clark works here with a host of European players – Andy Sheppard on reeds, Ernst Reijseger on cello, and Erns Glerum on bass, as well as legendary South African drummer Louis Moholo – in a batch of darkly-tinged free jazz tracks that include "Boo Related", " ... CD
Consider The Source
Life Force Jazz, 1992. New Copy
Wonderful work from Bay Area reedman Dawan Muhammad – an overlooked spiritual jazz player who really sparkles strongly on this set! The album from the early 90s, but has a vibe that feels like material from the glory days of the 70s indie scene – especially the hip sound of the Oakland ... CD
Generation Dance
Life Force Jazz, 2002. New Copy
An incredibly soulful set from pianist Elmer Gibson – best known to our ears as a member of the Norman Connors group during the late 70s, and a player who's clearly influenced by that legacy! For the album, Gibson calls upon some of his 70s contemporaries – including Gary Bartz and ... CD
Sharps & Flats
Nimbus, 1979/1985. New Copy
Soaring spiritual soul jazz from the LA scene – a CD that features a beautiful performance by the Jesse Sharps Quintet, plus a longer extended track from Horace Tapscott's Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra! We'll be honest in saying that we'd never heard of Sharps before this CD – but he's ... CD
Modern Jazz/Arision (UK), 1973. New Copy
One of our favorite piano jazz albums of all times – a slyly funky set from the legendary Marco DiMarco – and one that features him on both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes! The beauty of this record is hard to describe in words – as it's simple and subtle, but with a depth that ... CD
Princess/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Wonderful work from a group who are equally great on the funky tip, and on the mellow side of the spectrum – a small southern combo from the mid 70s, but one with a feel that's a lot more like some late 60s funky 45s! The funky cuts are almost all originals here – handled by Earl with ... CD
Cat/Henry Stone, 1978. New Copy
CD...$9.99 12.99
A killer bit of southern soul from Gwen McCrae – one that's in the best tradition of Miami work of the time, but which also takes Gwen into even deeper territory vocally! The record's got a mature depth that we totally love – a quality that shows the key "adult" transitions ... CD
