Pretty raw stuff from New Orleans pianist/vocalist James Booker! The 2CD set features live work that was recorded in 1977 at a small club in the Crescent City – a very spare date that has Booker playing and singing with no other accompaniment! The music's a great way to hear James in a really spare, stripped-down setting – one that shows the deep charm he always had when playing live, as you'll hear from his clever patter with the audience – and their clearly rapt response. Some titles are done in more than one version, and titles include "Classified", "Let Them Talk", "Taste Of Honey", "Papa Was A Rascal", "Junko Partner", and "Make A Better World".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Numero, 1977. New Copy
Incredibly beautiful work from Willie Wright – an album of folksy soul with a slight island spirit – one that nicely nestles Willie's music in a space somewhere between the best 70s work of Terry Callier and Jon Lucien! The sound is wonderful – lean, stripped-down, and ... CD

Ode To Booker Ervin
Columbia/Rocket (Finland), 1970. New Copy
A rare Finnish album from the great trumpeter Ted Curson – and easily one of his greatest albums ever! The Ted heard here is a bit like the Curson of the famous early 70s Paris sessions – soulful, soaring, and still every bit as modern as his initial moments in the 60s – yet ... CD

Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold
A brilliant set from tenorist David Schnitter – maybe the best we've heard from him in years – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of his work! The album's got that special spark and crackle we love in the Live At Smalls series – a magic way of really letting the leader ... CD

Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold
A great tenorist, heard here in a wonderfully rich setting – a set of long, open tracks that really let Grant Stewart solo strongly – all with the special sort of energy that seems to take place in these Smalls Live recordings! Most numbers push up towards the 10 minute mark, leaving ... CD
