Kool & The Gang — Spirit Of The Boogie ... LP 9.99

Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older crack rhythms with some newer, hipper, jazzier inflections – making for an incredibly powerful sound that really opens them up. Titles include the massively funky "Jungle Jazz" – a jazzy follow up to "Jungle Boogie" – plus some spiritual numbers that have a cosmic soul jazzy feel, like the tracks "Cosmic Energy", "Ancestral Ceremony", and "Winter Sadness". The whole thing's great – and other titles include "Mother Earth", "Caribbean Festival", and "Ride The Rhythm". (Original pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

De-Lite, 1978. Very Good+
A tasty little disco album that's a lot better than you might think!

One of Kelly's last records of the 70s – a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still quite strong overall, with some excellent vocals on most tracks.

Atco, 1970. Very Good+
Landmark stuff, and a beautiful album that mixes soulful tracks with Donny's nascent jazz sensibility!

Dizzy In Greece
Verve, 1956. Very Good-
Dizzy's in Greece, looking very cool in a fez on the cover – and really wailing hard with a larger group that includes Billy Mitchell, Charlie Persip, Lee Morgan, Wynton Kelly, and Phil Woods! The mode here is still quite boppish, despite the larger size of the ensemble – but Dizzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
