Sugarman ThreeSweet Spot ... CD
Unique (Germany), 2001. Used ... $11.99
As funky as ever! We know what you're thinking: The Sugarman Three on a European label? Wassup wit dat? Don't worry, though, because most of the set was recorded at the Desco Studios in New York – and is sort of a combination of tracks lifted from other Desco releases, plus a few new ones that show the band grooving hard in their old funky mode. These guys are still probably the greatest new funk group on the market – and they manage to work every song into a funky 45-like frenzy, which is a hell of a compliment from us! New tracks include "Sweet Spot", "Soul Barrio Part 2", "Five Four Five", and a great cover of "2001" – plus unreleased numbers from their Soul Donkey session, like "Mudd Slide" and "Daisy's Boogaloo". Other tracks include "Cherry Pickin", "Hot Sauce", "Turtle Walk", "Sock Monkey", "Daisy Rides Again", and "Chicken Half". (Deep Funk, Jazz) CD

✨✧ Sugarman ThreeWhat The World Needs Now ... CD
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The return of the great ones – and quite possibly the funkiest album ever from The Sugarman Three – a crowning achievement for this funky combo that we've loved for years! The core trio is still in place – soaring Hammond, tight tenor, and heavy drums – but they've also added in some extra help from the Daptone universe – which helps the group hit an ultra-funky sound here – one that's sharp-edged, no-nonsense, and a wicked blend of soul jazz and late 60s funk! There's still plenty of standout tenor solos from Neal Sugarman, and wicked organ lines from Adam Scone – but there's also a bit of added trumpet, and great Bosco Mann basslines – which really give the whole thing a heavy punch. The groove is much more stripped-down and hard-edged than the Dap-Kings – and burns with a fire that never lets up for a minute – proof that in a world of funky revival combos, some of the older act still do it best! Titles include "Mellow Meeting", "Dirty Water", "Rudy's Intervention", "Your Friendly Neighborhood Sugarman", "But It's Alright", "Witch's Boogaloo", "Brother T", and "Love Went Away".

✨✧ SouliveTurn It Out ... CD
Velour, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
New York is what is funky! This is a killer new release by a small organ jazz combo from the Big Apple – and they are definitely worthy members of the city's great end-of-the century funk scene that includes Medeski Martin & Wood, Sugarman Three, and The Other Side! The band have certainly spent plenty of time getting their chops up – and they have a very tight organ/guitar sound with a totally live feel to it. The overall groove is right up there with the best classic combos on Prestige – with stone cold funky drumming underneath sweetly strident lines on the Hammond, and some very heavy guitar rhythm parts. In a way, the record really evokes the heavy funk sound of Lonnie Smith's fantastic Blue Note sides from the Late 60s – with a very heavy drum sound nicely kicking it live! The CD's their first – and believe us, it will more than break them out of the box. Tracks include "Arruga De Agua", "Doin Something", "Rudy's Way", "Azucar", and "Steppin". Great stuff – and the kind of small-group recording that makes it worth shopping at Dusty Groove! Plus, this is the new remastered version of the CD – featuring 2 bonus cuts that weren't on the original release! (Deep Funk, Jazz) CD

✨✧ Cozy EgglestonGrand Slam ... LP
Co-Egg, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the all-time killers! Chicago tenor legend Cozy Eggleston cut this self-produced album during the late 60s – and it's one of the hardest heaviest set of organ/tenor jams we've ever heard! The music is played by a power trio the likes of which will remind you of the Sugarman Three – with Karl Johnson on organ, and Ken Sampson playing these amazing scatter-shot lines on the drums. Cozy's also playing with the production of the record a lot during the set – so there's some cool echoey parts that come in and out on some cuts. The real treat, though, is Cozy's horn – which is loud and soulful, and totally in-the-pocket in a rough live set kind of way! Very very nice – and packaged in a great little cover, too! Titles include "Wham", "Grand Slam", "Jokers Wild", and "A Thing For Marty Faye". LP, Vinyl record album
(In great shape!)
