Pure grooviness!

Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Mighty sounds from a legendary Detroit soul producer – the great Dave Hamilton, a talent who issued a number of key singles back in the day, but who's left behind an even larger legacy of excellent unreleased work! This collection draws from both sides of that spectrum – and features ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)

Metti Una Sera A Cena
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Quite possibly the greatest Morricone score ever – and one whose dreamy bossa-inflected title theme has been covered a number of times over the years (most recently by the group Balanco!) From the first minutes of the album, you'll instantly recognize the main theme – as it's swells of ... CD (Soundtracks)

Ekpenyong Abasi
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the coolest, grooviest work we've ever heard from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – recorded by an artist who was heading a children's program at the time! Make no mistake, though – this is no kiddie music, but instead a wonderfully rich, vibrant collection of material – as ... CD (Global Grooves)

Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold
Very cool, very groovy soundtrack from this Italian film about satanic ritual and demonic possession! The great Piero Umiliani serves up a wide-ranging batch of tracks, from breezy vocal pop numbers (with vocals by Shirley Hammer), to spooky funk instrumentals with a sort of "haunted ...

Set Us Free
Blue Note (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of the most mindblowing sets ever from organist Reuben Wilson – his last session for Blue Note, and a much more ambitious record than before! The style here is more Cadet Records concept than the usual smaller combo groove of other Wilson sides for Blue Note – as Reuben's organ is ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Two Chaps – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1994. New Copy
Two chaps, both of them great – legendary British improviser Evan Parker on tenor and soprano saxophone, working nicely alongside Yoshizawa Motoharu on bass! Although Parker was a player who first made waves early on the British free jazz scene, his work during this 90s stretch may well be ... CD (Jazz)

Picture Of Heath
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy
A brilliant mid 70s album from Jimmy Heath – recorded at a time when he was making some of his greatest strides on record! The album's got a spare, simple quartet format – but Jimmy's working here in a really expansively soulful sound – one that matches that of Clifford Jordan at ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1975/1978. New Copy
Two sweet 70s Italian soundtracks – one sexy, one scary – both penned by maestro Carlo Savina, and offered up here on a single CD! L'Ingenua starts things off – with a vibe that's every bit as slinky as you might expect from the image on the cover – warm, erotic themes that ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dada – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy
A pair of percussionists, working here together wonderfully – in a set that has both musicians using the drum kit and other percussion – and Han Bennink picking up a bit of piano as well! We've always loved Bennink's highly melodic approach – a style that seems to get notes out ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Light In The Attic, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy
Wonderful work from one of our favorite singers of all time – an artist with roots in jazz, but one who quickly stepped out into something else entirely – as you'll hear on this beautiful selection of tunes! Karin Krog's been a key figure in the Norwegian jazz scene since the start of ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bugge & Friends
Jazzland (Norway), 2015. New Copy
Bugge Wessltoft returns to a style that made us first fall in love with him many years back – a hip blend of jazzy instrumentation and more cosmic 21st Century touches – all wrapped up in that sweet style that first put Norway's Jazzland label on the map! Bugge's at the helm on Fender ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Intrigo A Los Angeles
Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Jazzy goodness from the wonderful Piero Umiliani – a set that's got some sweet instrumental touches from Chet Baker on trumpet, plus piano from Umiliani himself! The overall feel is very much in an early 60s crime jazz style – that best Italian groove before more mod and bossa-styled ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy
An overlooked bit of genius from Federico Fellini – a film that stars Terence Stamp as a Shakespearean actor run amuck – set to wonderful sounds here by the great Nino Rota! Rota revives some of his most charming styles from early 60s Fellini classics like La Dolce Vita or 8 1/2 – ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy
Blue-eyed soul, yacht rock, and sweet AOR grooves – all coming together in a surprisingly soulful set! Most of the artists here were found in the rock racks, and not the soul shelves back in the day – but they all drew plenty from the best advances in 70s grooves – particularly ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pieces
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1982. New Copy
An Italian take on the chainsaw slasher genre – served up here in an obscure set of tracks from a number of top shelf composers! Some of the initial tracks on the record show a bit of wit – that tongue-in-cheek mode that often befit the genre, especially at the start of the films ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sounds Of Memphis/Ace (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
The later years of the Sound Of Memphis studio – cuts from a time when the legendary deep soul powerhouse was trying on some of the newer modes from the end of the 70s! The work here is a real lost slice of Memphis soul – music from a time when the heyday of Stax and Hi Records had ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy
The near-complete recorded legacy of Amara Toure – a singer who made an incredible splash on the Cameroonian scene of the 70s, but who only managed to make a handful of singles and one full length LP! The material is all tremendous, though – as Toure sings with this rich, deep sound ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Prophet
Verve (Japan), 1968. New Copy
One of the last albums that Cal Tjader ever cut for Verve – and it's also one of the best! The great Joao Donato's sitting in on piano, and the set has a beautiful mix of Brazilian and Latin grooves, with added Verve groovy touches thrown in for good measure! Don Sebesky did the ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Schema (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold
One of the coolest Italian soundtracks we've heard in a long time – a wonderful set of tunes that moves from slinky, to easy, to groovy, and beyond! The tunes start out bubbling very spare and slow – with floating piano, moog, and other nice bits – and as the record progresses, ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dorothy's Harp
Cadet (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the grooviest Dorothy Ashby albums of the 60s – a set that has her already-great jazz work on harp backed by Chicago soul arrangements from Richard Evans – all in a blend that's somewhere in the territory of the Soulful Strings, but even groovier! And as an added bonus, Odell ... CD (Jazz)
