Blue Note, 1958. Gatefold (reissue)
A stunning set from overlooked tenor genius Tina Brooks – a musician who recorded for Blue Note during the key years of Hank Mobley and Johnny Griffin, but whose music was mostly un issued at the time! This rare set is a great second chapter to Tina's True Blue album – material ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Alexander

Leap Of Faith
Giant Step Arts, 2019.
The great Eric Alexander in a trio mode – soaring out with a lot more space and soul than some of his albums with a pianist – and that's saying a lot, given the wonderfully soulful sound of that work too! The style is a mode that Alexander has explored a bit over the years, but which ... CD
Polydor, 1969.
A rare lost treasure from James Brown – the full, unedited version of a live concert that was cut up and butchered for the Sex Machine album – presented here for the first time ever, with a huge amount of never-issued tunes! Sex Machine was one of those "fake" concert albums ... CD

Straight No Chaser

Issue #100 – Fall 2019
SNC (UK), 2019.
The 100th issue of Straight No Chaser – a fantastic book-size version of the magazine that was one of the most important inspirations for Dusty Groove back at the start! There's few folks that cover the kind of music we love as well as Straight No Chaser – and this time around, they ... Magazine
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. 3CD
A wonderful look at a shifting sound in British rock at the start of the 70s – a move away from more urban themes to rootsier ones – a shift that almost marks a second huge wave of influence from American music, but in ways that were very different from the blues and soul than first ... CD

Carmen Lundy

Modern Ancestors
Afrasia, 2019.
To our ears, there's nothing like a record from Carmen Lundy – one of the few jazz singers who can hold us completely rapt over the years, and who keeps on coming up with wonderful albums like this one! Carmen's voice has always been fantastic, but in recent years she's got an even more ... CD

Al Hudson & the Soul Partners

Especially For You/Cherish (with bonus tracks)
ABC/Expansion (UK), 1977.
Two fantastic early albums by Al Hudson – working here with his initial group, The Soul Partners! First up is Especially For You – a record that's kind of a first chapter to all the excellent work by One Way to come – even though Al's not using that group name at this time! The ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s.
A really great collection of female pop nuggets from the 60s – and one that goes way beyond familiar classics from the British and Brill Building scenes! Instead, this package really digs deep – at the level we love from the Teensville label, who we've really grown to trust for finding ... CD

Patrick Cowley

Mechanical Fantasy Box
Dark Entries, 1970s.
Very early music from the great Patrick Cowley – all unreleased tracks, most of which are from a time before his huge rise to fame on the dancefloor scene! This work all represents early experiments with synthesizers – and while some of the tracks have an upbeat groove that foreshadows ... CD

Curt Boettcher & Friends

Looking For The Sun (with bonus tracks)
Columbia/High Moon, Late 60s.
A fantastic array of Sunshine Pop from the godlike hands of Curt Boettcher – all late 60s gems that were lost in the shuffle at Columbia Records, when Curt was working there as a producer! Boettcher's probably best known for his work in the groundbreaking group The Millenium, but despite the ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1979.
Maybe the third great Philly studio group of the 70s – after MFSB and Salsoul Orchestra – a killer combo who provided backing grooves to plenty of great club tracks over the years – and who step out strongly here on their own debut album! Bunny Sigler helps give the album a sharp ... CD

Michael Dease

Never More Here
Posi tone, 2019.
Michael Dease is as great a writer as he is a trombonist – which is to say a heck of a lot – but this time around, he opens the door to a wider range of jazz history – by offering up his own arrangements of tunes by Jimmy Heath, Jackie McClean, JJ Johnson, Eric Alexander, and ... CD
Reprise/BMG, 1969. 2CD
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), Late 70s.
A smoking set of disco from one of the most legendary dancefloor labels of the 70s – Salsoul Records, a company that came from the salsa underground to conquer the clubs with a really revolutionary set of grooves! Salsoul tracks are always well-built from the ground up – impeccable ... CD
Motown, 1972.
A tremendous live performance from Marvin Gaye – recorded at the Kennedy Center in 1972, and based around his classic album What's Going On – yet handled in a completely different way! The set's not just a straight reading of the record – as the song order is different, and the ... CD
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. 6CD
An amazing package – three great albums by The Fall, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Hex Enduction Hour – one of our key go-to albums by The Fall – a set in which all their early promise really came into focus – with even more wit and power than before! The ... CD

Nick Fraser/Kris Davis/Tony Malaby

Zoning
Astral Spirits, 2019.
Drummer Nick Fraser has a great sense of cyclical energy here – a way of playing freely, but elliptically – so that there's this sense of passage and phase in some of the music, even while all the members are improvising with great intensity! The core trio features Fraser on drums, ... CD

Peter Brotzmann/Alexander Von Schlippenbach/Han Bennink

Fifty Years After – Live At The Lila Eule 2018
Trost (Austria), 2019.
A legendary trio, very firmly back in action – and making us feel like it's the late 60s European free jazz scene all over again! The energy of the players here is tremendous – and while we've enjoyed the renewed strengths of saxophonist Peter Brotzmann in recent years, we're equally ... CD
International Anthem, 2019.
A really fantastic album from Jaimie Branch – one that's even more powerful than the first Fly Or Die set – which is saying a heck of a lot, given that that record hit most of us with a pretty hard punch! The sound is even more groundbreaking than before – moving well beyond jazz ... CD
Gospel Friend (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. 2CDs
A wealth of female gospel from the early years of the genre – served up here on a double-length set that features tracks from some of the important stars of the time, plus a host of rare gems that we've never heard before! Most of the material here features a lead female singer with a ... CD
