Smooth jazz work from guitarist Craig T Cooper – one of his indie sides from the late 80s, a nice mellow batch of tracks written, produced, and played all by Craig himself – with occasional help on vocals by Denise Stewart, and piano by Jerry Peters. Titles include "Nude ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A goofy cover, and a tribute to Alice In Wonderland, but a nice little record – one that has Chick Corea playing a wide variety of keyboards next to acoustic piano – coming up with a sound that's sometimes cosmic, sometimes spacious, but always a lot more creative than most of his ...

Giles Corey is a bluesman at heart, but he plays here in a style that's got lots of soul and funk touches too – particularly in the way he works his guitar with lots of wah-wah style riffs! The record's got a contemporary blues vibe overall, but Giles definitely has a slightly different ... (Blues) read moreCD
Queensbridge-bred veteran MC Cormega returns with an ambitious twist on the "Best Of" formula, to say the least – one disc featuring classic Cormega, and disc 2 featuring contemporary live funk & R&B crew The Revelations backing Cormega! The Best Of Cormega disc includes ... (Hip Hop) read moreCD
Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose were one of a handful of early 70s groups – like Chairmen Of The Board or 100 Proof Aged In Soul – who had a sound that was incredibly hard to peg. There were bits of southern rawness in the vocals, but the overall approach also had plenty of ... (Soul) read moreCD

Larry Coryell's lost none of his genius over the years – and this recent session still has the guitar innovator working with all the best styles we first loved in his initial recordings for Vanguard!

Gal Costa —
Cantar ... CD Philips (Brazil), 1974. Used ...
A real moment of beauty from Gal Costa in the 70s – a set that moves away from her more experimental music of the Tropicalia generation, and yields a more personal approach overall – one that's quite similar to the best from Caetano Veloso at the time! As with Caetano during this shift ... (Brazil) read moreCD

Great early work from Brazilian saxophonist Hector Costita – a blend of jazz and bossa that's totally great – and a fair bit different than some of the other records of the time! The style here isn't just simple bossa with saxophone over the top – and instead, Hector changes ... (Brazil) read moreCD
An amazing chapter in the career of British saxophonist Lol Coxhill – two completely wonderful albums recorded for the Ogun label in the mid 70s! The feel here is similar to Coxhill's seminal albums for Virgin a few years before – jazz that's free, but never too "out" – ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Sublime soprano sax duets from the team of Lol Coxhill and Michel Doneda – both playing at a level that's almost more about sound overall than just notes and music – that great ear for textures and shapes that have made us love Coxhill's work since the 70s! The tracks are mostly long, ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Instrumental magic from the great Floyd Cramer – two classy albums, back to back on a single CD! On Class Of 70, Floyd Cramer starts off the 70s with a mighty groovy record – one that's got some sweet arrangements from Bill McElhiney, who seems to swing a bit more than usual! The ...

Sweet soulful jazz from reedman Hank Crawford – one of his killer Kudu sessions from the 70s – all of which really helped Hank redefine his sound! The setting here is large and full – put together beautifully by Bob James, with that sense of space for the soloist that makes his ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Not really a symphony, but a great album that features the soulful alto sax of Hank Crawford blowing over some rich larger backings from David Matthews – all with a sweetly funky Kudu sound! The style's a bit more polished than some of the other Kudu sessions of the time – almost a bit ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Given Hank Crawford's soulful legacy on the alto sax – one that already made him a star in Ray Charles group by the time of this LP – it would be hard to add More Soul to his bag – but that's what he's going for here, and we've gotta say that it works pretty darn well! The ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A pair of CTI/Kudu classics from Hank Crawford – back to back on a single CD! Wildflower is a sweet bit of electric funk, and one of Hank Crawford's greatest records from the 70s – thanks in large part to the great Bob James – who arranged and produced the record with a mighty ...

A fantastically beautiful album that strongly proves the old jazz adage "It's not the song, but the singer"! The "singer" in this case is alto player Sonny Criss – and the songs are a middle of the road batch of compositions, like "Sunny", "Willow Weep For ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Short swing based tracks recorded by French guitarist Henri Crolla in the mid 50s – originally issued on one LP and 2 45 rpm eps, and lovingly repackaged here with full notes, in a set that includes 16 tracks in all.

(NOTE: This CD is missing the back tray artwork, but still contains the full booklet. Everything else is fine – just the back tray artwork is missing.)
Legendary live work from one of the greatest supergroups of all time – never-heard material from their famous concert tour of 1974! Neil Young is a key part of the lineup of Graham Nash, David Crosby, and Stephen Stills – and the quartet harmonize and trade leads beautifully on a set ... (Rock) read moreCD
Jazzy soul with plenty of warmth – a great album by this little-known group from Ohio! The combo started out as a fusion group, but then moved into some soulful territory when they picked up a vocalist – singer Ron Boustead, who gives the record a style that reminds us a lot of Average ...

Seminal 70s work from Crown Heights Affair – recorded when the group still had a lot of fire, and were working in that key transitional sound from soul to disco! The album's got a really full and grooving feel – and includes both disco and vocal versions of their hit "Dreaming A ... (Soul) read moreCD
(NOTE: Pages of booklet are rippled and stuck together from water damage.)
A really mixed bag of grooves from the Crusaders – but still an album that's quite tasty if you dig their work on the Chisa label! The disc appears to be a greatest hits collection – with the "best" in the title – but it's more a summation of the styles they'd been ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A mellow soul classic from Chicago – and one of the last great records to come out of the city's hip 70s soul scene! We know very little about Crystal Winds – save for this excellent record, one of the few titles issued on the short-lived Cash Ear label, a south-side imprint in the ... (Soul) read moreCD
