Forget the "punk" in the group's name, and just focus on the "bop" – as the quintet have a nicely angular sort of energy, one that's definitely modern, but which certainly owes a lot to the sharp changes of jazz generations gone by! The instrumentation really draws a lot from the guitar of Jonathan Kreisberg, which rings out beautifully and warms up the acoustic instruments – Will Vinson's alto sax, Tigran Hamasyan's piano, Danton Boller's bass, and Ari Hoenig's drums – all working together as a well-honed ensemble that rings out beautifully with the tones of the guitar at the seeming core. Tracks are long, and titles include "Birdless", "Dark News", "Ska", "Green Spleen", and "Remembering".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Family Groove, Early 70s. New Copy
The coolest chapter so far in the long-lost story of the He3 Project – wonderfully spiritual jazz sounds from the San Francisco scene of the early 70s – recorded with a wicked blend of instrumentation and vocals, and a really cosmic sound overall! The music isn't just the usual ... CD

Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
Very very very cool stuff from Italy in the 70's. This tight little combo featuring Fender Rhodes, electric bass, and congas lays down some super tight grooves with a very deep, very funky, very laid back feel. Originally intended for soundtrack use in TV and commercials, this disc has finally ... CD

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2001. New Copy
A raw, live set from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – but a great little record that really reminds us of a classic 60s session on ESP! Boykin's reeds are wonderful throughout – filled with the depth of soul we might expect from Kalaparusha or Albert Ayler – and set up here in ... CD

Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
One of Billy Paul's greatest albums ever – or perhaps the greatest! The record is an amazing blend of soul, jazz, and a soaring sense of spiritualism that's not only rare for Billy Paul – but which makes the record sound different than any other Philly International LP from the time! ... CD
