CTI, 1970s. New Copy 4CD Gatefold ... $26.99 29.98
A well-titled little set – as the collection is as cool as the sound of CTI Records back in the 70s! The unique package features an LP-sized cover – just like one of the CTI gatefold albums from back in the day – which contains 4 different CDs, each with a slightly different take on the sound of the legendary label! CD 1 is titled Straight Up – and features amazing 70s jazz from Hubert Laws, Ron Carter, George Benson, Randy Weston, Freddie Hubbard, and others. CD 2 is titled Deep Grooves/Big Hits – and features some killer numbers by Esther Phillips, Johnny Hammond, Freddie Hubbard, Deodato, Joe Farrell, and Hank Crawford. Next is CD 3, The Brazilian Connection – a beautiful demonstration of Creed Taylor's love of sounds from Rio and beyond – filled with great work from Airto, Paul Desmond, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Stanley Turrentine, Milt Jackson, and Deodato. Last up is Cool & Classic – the 4th CD, with CTI-remade work by older players such as Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker, Kenny Burrell, and Jim Hall – all a perfect fit for the label's new sound of the 70s! The package also features an LP-sized booklet – filled with notes and rare images! CD

VariousLife:Styles Coldcut ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used ... $5.99
Older grooves – but as fresh as can be – thanks to a great compilation job by Coldcut! The tunes are a mix of older funk from obscure sources – and include some excellent lesser-known funky soul numbers, some very groovy instrumentals, and a few post-disco dancefloor numbers that round out the set nicely! Coldcut's been digging the grooves longer than most of today's younger DJs, and the set's got a real depth that comes from all of his years in the field – moving past familiar funk to include some really wonderful numbers. Titles include "I Want You Back" by Bob Shad & The Bad Men, "Do Your Thing" by Chosen Few, "La Drogue" by Richard De Bordeaux & Daniel Baretta, "It's Yours" by TLA Rock & Jazzy Jay, "Can I Get A Witness" by Barbara Randolph, "So Hungry So Angry" by Medium Medium, "The Only Way Is Up" by Otis Clay, "Power" by Temptations, "There's A Break In The Road" by Betty Harris, "Hernandoz Hideaway" by Archie Bleyer, "Disposable Society" by Esther Phillips, and "La Gigouille" by La Formule Du Baron. CD features 17 cuts in all! CD
