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.

A great one from trombonist Steve Davis – a set that not only showcases his skills on his instrument, but also his increasingly great ear for a composition as well! The album's sub-titled "The Hartford Suite" – and features a set of original tracks commissioned by that city, ... 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
Generations
Posi tone, 2013. New Copy
A really wonderful set from reedman Shauli Einav – a player who's been around for a few years, but who we're only discovering with this album – an artist who really grabs us right away with his soulful work on tenor and soprano sax! As with many albums on the excellent Posi-tone label, ... 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
Local Colour
ESP, 1968. New Copy
CD...$7.99 12.99
One of the most far-reaching sets of UK jazz we've heard from the mid 60s – the recording debut of pianist Peter Lemer, working here in a quintet that also features a young John Surman! The leadoff track is a version of Carla Bley's great "Ictus" – and the style of the work ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), 1980/1981. New Copy
A pair of late Columbia gems from Ramsey Lewis – back to back on a single CD! Routes features Ramsey Lewis in two modes – both of them great! The set's got Ramsey working with two different producers, each on a different side of the record – and both of them bring a nice ... 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
