Cairo/Mississippi, 1960s/Early 70s. 2LP
A masterful overview of American soul styles from the 60s – one that brings together a fair bit of deep soul gems, along with some other material that really helps round out the set in a great way! The package is superb – as the album comes with the same huge booklet that you'll find ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis Coffey

Instant Coffey
Sussex/Octave (Japan), 1974.
There's nothing instant about this album from the great Dennis Coffey – as the set marks a continuing evolution of the fantastic guitar sound he forged on the Detroit scene from the late 60s onward – that wicked blend of funk, soul, jazz, and a bit of rock – served up wonderfully ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s. (reissue)
A brilliant album that would forever change the way the organ was used in jazz! The set's the greatest contribution ever from organist Larry Young – a lean and modal session recorded with help from a young quartet that includes Woody Shaw on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, and Elvin Jones ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ryo Kawasaki

Juice
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. (reissue)
One of the few American releases by this legendary Japanese fusion artist – and a pretty funky little record as well! Ryo Kawasaki plays lead guitar and the very cool "string synthesizer" on the set – making for a sweet mix of electric grooves that has some really great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Timeless/Solid (Japan), Mid 80s.
Cedar Walton plays here with one of his greatest trios ever – the lineup that featured David Williams on bass and Billy Higgins on drums – both players who seem to match that blend of spirit and lyricism that was always so special on Walton's approach! The album's an obscure one, but ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s.
Numero goes deep this time around – deep soul territory in their own Eccentric Soul slice of the universe – with a specially-themed collection of rare soul singles from the sorts of small indie labels that they've always championed! The shrinkwrap bears a sticker that says "the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zulema

Ms Z
Sussex/Octave (Japan), 1973.
Excellent early work by Zulema – high-minded and righteous soul, with a really expansive sound that's in keeping with the best on Sussex at the time! The arrangements are nicely complicated – arranged by Bobby Taylor and Gene Page with a good blend of funk, righteous soul, and some ... CD

Dennis Coffey

Electric Coffey
Sussex/Octave (Japan), 1972.
Mad funk from Dennis Coffey – and the follow-up to his landmark Evolution album! It's interesting to note that Coffey's group is listed as the "Detroit Guitar Band" – which kind of foregrounds their link between the city's two strongest music sides of the late 60s: the hard ... CD
Verve, 1964. Gatefold (reissue)
A key example of the popularity of the Oscar Peterson Trio in the mid 60s – an album of tracks that listeners wanted to hear done in the group's familiar style – that wonderful way of soulful inflection that Oscar had when he shifted up the lineup of the trio at the start of the 60s! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ruby Johnson

If I Ever Needed Love
Velvet Ramp/Mississippi, Mid 60s.
Soul singer Ruby Johnson never recorded a full album back in the day – and this set nicely corrects that fact, by bringing together some of her rare singles as a wonderful ten track album! Ruby's got a richness that's in the best southern soul mode of the time – a voice that would fit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis Coffey

Goin' For Myself
Sussex/Octave (Japan), 1972.
Nobody handled a fuzz guitar better than Dennis Coffey back in the early 70s – and this album's one of his masterpieces of funky instrumental work for the Sussex label – cuts that show just how much command Coffey had of the electric strings after a number of years working in both the ... CD
Blue Note, 1966. (reissue)
An incredible album – one of our favorite Blue Notes ever! Despite the fact that the album's a spare quartet session, the record is one of Wayne Shorter's richest – and features his gutsy young tenor soloing insanely with a rhythmically intense combo that includes Herbie Hancock on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Bobo & the Bo-Gents

Do What You Want To Do
Sussex/Octave (Japan), Early 70s.
Incredible work by Willie Bobo – a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums! The record's a killer all the way through – a mixture of Latin and deep 70s funk, one of the few perfect fusions of the styles, held up beautifully ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), Early 70s.
Back in the early 70s, the Perception label was one of the hippest new record companies to come up on the scene – a very cool, very forward-thinking company that did a great job of blending together jazz, funk, and soul – sometimes with older artists looking to find a new way forward, ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969/1976/1978.
Incredible Japanese soundtrack recordings – music that's as dramatic as you might expect from the image on the cover! Most of these tunes have a cool jazzy feel at the core – but one that's also inflected by some of the mod elements that you might find in a hip late 60s Italian ... CD
Trojan, Mid 60s. 2LP Gatefold
A set of tracks brought together in celebration of 60s years of independence for the nation of Jamaica – music from a key moment when the new sounds of the scene were really starting to take off – the formative years for so much that we came to know in rocksteady, reggae, and beyond! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis Coffey

Evolution
Sussex/Octave (Japan), 1971.
A groundbreaking record – and one that set a whole new standard for guitar funk in the 70s! By the time of this set, Dennis Coffey had been playing, arranging, and producing all over the Detroit soul scene for many years – so it wasn't like he really needed a hit to get paid or ... CD

Nucleus

Alleycat
Vertigo/We Are Busy Bodies, 1975. (reissue)
Slightly later work from the legendary jazz/rock combo Nucleus, and one of their most obscure records too – sweet mid 70s set that has the band really tightening up – going for a heavy funk approach that has all instruments grooving on the rhythm, stretching out on long tracks that are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Calvin Keys

Blue Keys
Wide Hive, 2022.
Guitarist Calvin Keys has really been going strong in recent years, but this album may well be one of the best he's given us in the past decade or so – in part because he's opened the door to some really fantastic guest work on the session! In addition to Calvin's own distinctive guitar ... CD

Lonette McKee

Lonette
Sussex/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974.
A great little set from Lonette McKee – and much hipper than her later work on Warner Brothers! This Sussex set has Lonette working with Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey – in a cool blend of styles that's slightly soulful, slightly funky, slightly folksy, and pretty darn cool! The ... CD
