Steve Davis definitely gets it done with this sweet little set – just the kind of record that enforces all the love we've had for his talents over the years! Davis' sound on trombone is totally tops – tight, yet with a soulful flourish that really takes off on his solos – a sort of boldness that's more than enough to inspire the players in his group, as does his set of well-penned original compositions for the set! Davis never lets us down, and this album's the kind of soulful swinger that will have us checking him out for years to come – a set that features Josh Bruneau on trumpet, Mike DiRubbo on alto, Larry Willis on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Billy Williams on drums – and tunes that include "Getting It Done", "Steppin Easy", "Alike", "The Beacon", and "Wishes".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Harmonious Creature
Posi tone, 2013. New Copy
The title's a great one for this album by alto saxophonist Sarah Manning – as she's got a very strong sense of harmony on the record, and mixes her reed lines wonderfully with the guitar of Jonathan Goldberger and viola of Eyvind Kang! Both musicians have these tones that come into contact ... CD

Another Scene
Posi tone, 2013. New Copy
A really well-done quartet set from tenorist Doug Webb – a really strong player on his own, and a great writer too – but one who seems to sound especially nice in the context of this particular album! The group features excellent piano from Peter Zak, who rounds things out with a ... CD

It's All Good
Posi tone, 2012. New Copy
A sweet little session from guitarist Ed Cherry – recorded with great Hammond accompaniment from Pat Bianchi – in that soulful, stripped-down sound we love so much from the Posi-Tone label! There's a quality here that takes us back to the sound of Prestige Records back in the 60s ... CD

Bridges
Posi tone, 2013. New Copy
A really well-titled little record – as the sound here is quite unique, and often has the musicians creating these little bridges between each other's space! David Ake wrote all the tunes, and put them together with this angular, blocky sort of feel – lots of sound shapes at the core, ... CD

Soul Zodiac
Capitol (UK), 1972. New Copy
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling ... CD

Mayday – 1966
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1966. New Copy
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Peter Brotzmann – a rare live performance from 1966! Broztmann plays both alto and baritone sax here – already blowing with the intensity of his Machine Gun years, but working in a more stripped down setting – a trio with Peter Kowald on ... CD

Bantu Village
Blue Note/Soul Brother (UK), 1969. New Copy
One of the funkiest albums ever on Blue Note – a set that mixes the trumpet talents of Blue Mitchell with some killer backings from Monk Higgins – all in a groove that more gritty edges than the best funky soundtracks of the time! Higgins keeps the backings full, but always quite lean ... CD

Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy
Wicked late 70s work from Ronnie Foster – a rare Columbia outing that's arguably better than his earlier sides for Blue Note! There's more of a soul vibe than before in the music – but in a way that's really foregrounded, and without some of the back/forth wavering that Foster had in ... CD

Cotillion/Expansion (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD
A pair of gems from this great 70s funk ensemble! The group may be named Mass Production, but on Welcome To Our World, their sound is anything but – a really special fusion of key instrumental talents and vocal elements – all brought together in one of the tightest ensemble funk ... CD
