AirtoFree ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About August 31, 2016
One of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside ... read more CD

AirtoVirgin Land ... CD
Salvation/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About September 4, 2016
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

King (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $9.99

CTI/King (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... About September 4, 2016
A sweet funky classic from George Benson – featuring dope arrangements by Pee Wee Ellis, all with a groovy Kudu-type sound!

John BlairWe Belong Together ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About September 4, 2016
A strange bit of soul from the later years of CTI. John Blair's one of those guys that sounds better with a spacier sound – but here, he's working in a flanged-out rock-influenced mode that really doesn't bring out his best style on most cuts. David Matthews arranged the record, and Googie ... (Soul, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Art BlakeyFarewell – Live At Sweet Basil (2CD set) ... CD
King (Japan), 1985. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the most stunning later sets from the great Art Blakey – a record that reminds us that although Blakey had a great talent for picking key younger players to work with during the 80s, he could also still be one hell of a drummer as well! The tracks here are incredibly long and open ... read more CD

Earl BosticPlays Bossa Nova ... LP
King, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Well, it's not really bossa nova . . . it's more kind of Latiny backgrounds with a percussive and guitar sound, over which Earl Bostic solos in his beautifully raw style. Who cares about the true bossa-ness, though? We always love Bostic, and his alto sound is impeccable. Titles include "Cha ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordTico Rico ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About September 4, 2016
More of a David Matthews album than a Hank Crawford one – as Matthews handled the arrangements in that slick funky big band style he was using at the time, letting Crawford come into solo over the top, but not really leading the session in any sort of obvious way. Titles include "Funky ... read more CD

Ronnie CuberPin Point ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the strongest fusion sets we've ever heard from baritone saxophonist Ronnie Cuber – cut at a time when he was playing so much great music on other folks' records, but hardly ever got to shine on his own! Cuber's got a lean quality with his instrument that makes it a surprisingly good ... read more CD
