A great introduction to the awesomely funky music of Hilton Felton – an artist who's got a heck of a lot to offer, and who issued some amazing albums on his own great label during the 70s! Felton's a real original – a multi-talented guy, an inspirational businessman, and an all-around warm fellow whose collaborative spirit really comes through in these recordings – a killer collection of longform jams from his ultra-rare LPs! Felton's music has a way of layering the keyboards right over the rhythms, then blending the two together seamlessly as the tunes cook up their groove – a really rare style that's somewhere in the same territory of Lyman Woodard on his legendary Saturday Night Special album – which might be one of the fest records we could even begin to compare to these great tracks. Titles include "Be Bop Boogie", "Dream Come True", "Spreading Fever", "Your Analysis", and "Tell Her Love Has Felt The Need".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Jazzman (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy

Jazzman (UK), 2013. New Copy
A great addendum to Greg Foat's excellent Girl & Robots album – a set that's billed as a remix album, but which actually offers up much much more! The set's got less the feel of reworked material from another record, then a vibe that feels like a continuation of the great trippy jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Girl & Robot With Flowers
Jazzman (UK), 2012. New Copy
Amazing sounds from this very hip group – a contemporary combo, but one who play with a depth of sound to warrant their inclusion on the Jazzman label! The style is almost spiritual jazz, but a bit more laidback too – sounds that are cosmic, yet never soaring to the skies – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Locus (with download)
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
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2013. New Copy
One of the greatest albums so far from mighty Chicago reedman David Boykin – and easily a set that lives up to the rich legacy of avant jazz in the Windy City!

FPE, 2014. New Copy

Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 6LP & 7 Inch
Amazing sounds from The Stark Reality – an obscure group from the early 70s, but one who've really risen to fame over the years – thanks to their groundbreaking ear for new music, and their freewheeling way with a funky groove! This package brings together all the incredible work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/OJC, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
One of the four essential quintet sides Miles Davis cut for Prestige in the mid 50s – all modern jazz classics by anyone's measure, along with Steamin', Relaxin' and Cookin'. These quintet sides established Davis and John Coltrane as a significant force to be reckoned with, and helped set ... LP, Vinyl record album
Misterioso (Riverside)
Riverside/OJC, 1958. New Copy (reissue)
A key classic from Thelonious Monk's years at Riverside – and an album that's as compelling as its haunting title! The session features Thelonious working with a great quartet that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, playing these wonderfully angular lines; Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass, working ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1965. New Copy
A brilliant statement of modernist jazz from Sam Rivers – one of his groundbreaking early albums for Blue Note, and one of the most challenging sessions issued by the label during the 60s!

A Fender Rhodes treasure – the one and only album from Solis Lacus – a hip 70s Belgian group who were contemporaries of Placebo – and work here in very similar modes!
