Sublime sounds from the legendary Stanton Davis – a rare 70s gem that's been a favorite of groovehounds for years! The set's got a really unique feel – part spiritual jazz, part soaring club – a blend that's similar to the sound you'd get on James Mason's legendary album too – a unique hybrid of American undergrounds that comes off beautifully throughout! Production is perfect – a Mizell-like blend of acoustic and electric jazz elements, layered with a bit of vocals – and Davis plays soulful trumpet lines, in a group that has some especially nice keyboards! Titles include "Space A Nova (parts 1 & 2)", "Play Sleep", "Brighter Days/Brighter Daze", "Nida", "High Jazz", and "Things Cannot Stop Forever".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Amazing sounds from Sun Ra – vocal recitations, weird words, and spoken bits – all set to some mighty cosmic music!

Northern Spy, 2014. New Copy
Pretty electric sounds from the Chicago Underground Duo – a set that has Rob Mazurek adding in lots of electronics (even a Game Boy!) to his usual cornet lines, plus some other acoustic elements that work really well with the drums, mbira, and balaphone of Chad Taylor! The record shows an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Searing duets between reedman Ken Vandermark and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love – two players who've worked together often on both sides of the Atlantic, and really know each others' strengths!

FMP/Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 1991. New Copy (reissue)
Charles Gayle calls forth the ghost of John Coltrane wonderfully – in this freewheeling set that also features bass from William Parker and drums from sometime Trane-mate Rashied Ali!

Motor City Scene (remastered edition)
Bethlehem, 1960. New Copy
One of the most hard-hitting sessions ever recorded for the Bethlehem label – and a rare date for the imprint by the team of trumpeter Donald Byrd and saxophonist Pepper Adams!

Vee Jay/Mississippi, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
Possibly the closest thing to an early "hit" the Staple Singers ever had – an album that starts off with their classic rendition of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken", an instantly timeless tune penned by Roebuck Staples! The group's quite young at this point, and is a quintet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hard to imagine a cloud in the sky with music this brilliant – early work from The Staple Singers, done in a bluesy blend of gospel and roots – with some pretty soulful undercurrents too!

A stunner – the first full album by deep funk singer Sharon Jones, and an instant soul masterpiece!

Remember My Song
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Easily the best-remembered album by Labi Siffre – thanks to some well-used sample tracks over the years! But over and above the fame of the funky tunes "The Vulture" and "I Got The", the record's a key part of Siffre's 70s catalog – a record that's as great for its ... LP, Vinyl record album
