Art Blakey & Buddy DeFrancoBlues Bag ... LP
Vee Jay/Atlantis (UK), 1964. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A real lost treasure – and an incredible session that offers a real meeting of minds that's far more than you'd expect from the simple cover and title! The set is a later one for Vee Jay, and it brings together half of the Jazz Messengers with a batch of west coast players – in a groove that wonderfully mixes together different traditions and rhythms in jazz – and which steps out with a sound that's far more than the sum of its parts! Art Blakey, Lee Morgan, and Curtis Fuller join a group headed by Buddy De Franco, and featuring Victor Feldman on piano and vibes, plus Victor Sproles on bass and Freddie Hill on trumpet. The sound of the group is quite unusual – and a lot lighter than you'd guess – giving Buddy plenty of room to solo in a breezy style that's grown tremendously since his 50s recordings – pushed along by some heavier soul from Art and the group. Titles include "Rain Dance", "Blues Bag", "Twelve Tone Blues", "Kush", and "Cousin Mary". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Downes Open MusicMixed Bag (plus Reqiuem For Faruq Z Bey) ... CD
Openian, 1970s/1980s/2012. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99
Two albums in one package – both of them featuring excellent work from groundbreaking British reedman Bob Downes! Mixed Bag is nothing like you might expect from its title – because while the set does feature a variety of different sessions from Downes, it's also got a very unified feel – thanks partly to the range of sounds and ideas that Bob expresses in each new tune! The set's easily some of the most compelling work we've ever heard from Downes on record – and features 70s and 80s recordings on a variety of different flutes and woodwinds – some solo, some in the company of other contemporaries, like Ray Russell on guitar and Harry Miller on bass. Most tunes are very open, and quite spiritual in their approach – and titles include "Shriek Out", "Lola", "Jamaican Jump Up", "Borneo Breeze", "Eruption", "The Devil", and "Seashore". CD 2 features a wonderful tribute to departed reedman Faruq Z Bey – written and recorded shortly after Bey's passing in 2012, and featuring Downes playing tenor and a bit of bass flute – on these beautifully poetic solo passages! The piece is relatively short – but it's a great bonus to this package. CD

Dusty GrooveDusty Groove 20th Anniversary Tote Bag ... Bag
Dusty Groove Gear, 2016. New Item ... $0.99
A lean little bag for toting around town – smaller than the usual grocery-styled bags, and perfect for just bringing a few small things from point A to point B! The bag's square, and actually big enough to carry a few records – but it's also nice and light, easy to stash in a pocket, and pull out when you've got the odd book or bunch of mail – or are just picking up a few things at the store! The dark fabric of the bag means that nobody can peek inside – and the front's emblazoned with the ultra-cool Dusty Groove 20th Birthday logo! Bag

Dusty GrooveUltimate Crate Digger's Bag (natural canvas) ... Bag
Dusty Groove Gear, 2015. New Item ... $7.99
The ultimate bag for shopping for records – one that's big enough to handle dozens of pieces of vinyl – yet small enough to fold away easily! The bag is 100% cotton, all natural, with a Dusty Groove logo on one side, and text on the other – and it's got a very full, wide gusset which lets it easily flip open for carrying whatever you can get your hands on. We've taken these babies with us on countless record-buying trips – and they each can hold between 25 and 30 records, without taking any strain at all – and still leave plenty of room on the top for you to sling the handle over your shoulder. And speaking of the handle, it's made of thick rope – very strong, but easy on your hands when the bag is heavy – and like all the seams on the bag, it's extra-reinforced – to handle whatever you can throw its way! The bag has many possibilities – you can use it for carrying books, clothes, or groceries – but you'll probably end up using it for carrying records – because if you're a Dusty Groove customer, you don't spend your money on anything else!

Richie HavensMixed Bag ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ ... $7.99
The genius of Richie Havens at this point is beyond compare – a unique take on the dying folk sound of the 60s, one that infused it with a deeper sense of soul that helped it get new legs in the Woodstock generation – yet which is also heard here before any of the post-hippie cliches that would bog down some of Richie's later work. There's an earnestness to this music that's also touched with a good degree of worldly sense – a notion that the world was changing, but one person at a time, and mostly through the gentle efforts and honest efforts of souls like Richie. This LP features 11 tracks in all – with titles that include "High Flyin' Bird", "San Francisco Bay Blues", "Just Like A Woman", "Sandy", "Three Day Eternity", "Follow", and "Handsome Johny".

Shawn Lee's Ping Pong OrchestraVery Ping Pong Christmas – Funky Treats From Santa's Bag ... CD
Ubiquity, 2007. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
One of the funkiest Holiday albums you'll ever hear – a great set of instrumentals that's every bit as great as the other work by Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra, but which has a special Christmas focus as well! All the tunes here are familiar carols, but Shawn does them with a hip instrumental groove that's got plenty of snapping drums on the bottom – and lots of cool flourishes from vibes, keyboards, and guitar over the top! This is definitely the right sort of CD to spice up any sort of Holiday gathering – and it features wonderful funky takes on "Little Drummer Boy", "O Come All Ye Faithful", "Do You Hear What I Hear", "My Favorite Things", "Jingle Bells", "Deck The Halls", "Silent Night", and "Carol Of The Bells".

Jackie McLeanJackie's Bag (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1959/1960. Used ... $7.99
A real classic by Jackie McLean – a record that's pulled from 2 different sessions, but which stands out with a strikingly unified feel! The album was cut during the height of Jackie's bop years for Blue Note – with one 1959 session that featured Donald Byrd and Sonny Clark, and another from 1960 that featured Blue Mitchell, Kenny Drew, and the great Tina Brooks on tenor. Brooks' appearance on the album is especially great, as the tracks which feature him and McLean together crackle with some of the first modernist energy to show up on one of Jackie's albums – really hitting hard on original compositions that include "A Ballad For Doll", "Appointment in Ghana", and "Isle of Java". One of McLean's best-ever – and filled with great original tracks! CD also features 3 bonus tracks from the Brooks session – "Medina", "Melonae's Dance", and "Street Singer". CD

Ernie WattsWonder Bag ... LP
Vault, 1972. Very Good ... $9.99
An excellent early album from Ernie Watts – one that has him taking on the music of Stevie Wonder with very groovy results! The sound here is quite different than the smoother fusion of Ernie's later years – and instead, there's a rollicking soul jazz groove to most numbers – one that features Watts' sax work alongside piano from Joe Sample, guitar from David T Walker, drums from Paul Humphrey, and congas from Francisco Aguabella! The tracks are short and plenty darn groovy – almost a west coast take on the sax-heavy Motown grooves of Jr Walker, but given a slightly hipper touch too. Some of the best elements of the LA scene come into play on the session – and the arrangements by Kim Richmond feature fuller backings on a few tracks. Titles include a great version of "Angie Girl", plus "I'd Be A Fool Right Now", "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby", "My Cherie Amour", "You Met Your Match", and "I Was Made To Love Her".

A wonderful coffee that lives up to its name – roasted especially by the folks at Chicago's Dark Matter for our coffee drinking needs here at Dusty Groove! The base component to this blend is a coffee from Mexico and grown and milled at a cooperative called El Eden – very unique for a Mexican coffee, with a flavor profile that includes blueberry, banana, and baker's chocolate to give the blend a bit of depth. This base is then highlighted with a coffee from Guatemala grown by Finca San Jeronimo Miramar – which adds both body, and some lighter notes of toffee and praline – to give the whole thing a wonderful sun-drenched finish!

Polydor, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever – and also one of his deepest, too! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole new bag in soul music. There's a wonderful electric vibe running through the record – not just from Roy's vibes, but from the Fender Rhodes and Arp work by Phillip Woo – and the amazing energy of the rest of the group too. Features the landmark title cut – "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", one of those tunes that becomes more and more of a classic each year – plus spiritual numbers like "Third Eye" , "Keep on Walking", and "The Golden Rod". Very righteous, and with a cool dope jazzy groove! LP, Vinyl record album

A relatively serious score by John Barry – written for this mid 60s British social film that starred Judy Densch, Ann Lynn, and Norman Rodway. The scoring is incredibly sensitive – much more so than Barry's usual bag – with a solo reed instrument on many tracks, over orchestrations that often use quite a bit of percussion.

Black HeatNo Time To Burn ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Good+ ... $9.99
A stone classic from Black Heat – the group's second album, and even tighter than their first! The group's size has dropped a bit between albums – but that only helps them cook even more – dropping a bit of the horn section from before, which allows even more emphasis on their razor-sharp rhythms! There's a slight hint of Afro Funk in some of the rhythms – and the keyboards cook with lots of sweet clavinet lines – mixed with a production style that features some bubbling electronic elements that remind us a lot of that crazy "magic bag" that was used by the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band. That group might be a good point of comparison, but the band also shares a lot of Kool & The Gang's ensemble funk style – especially on their cover of "Love The Life You Live" – which they burn here beautifully! Other tracks include "Super Cool", "M&M's", "Rapid Fire", "You Should Have Listened", "Times Have Changed", and "Check It All Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bradford/Hafez Modirzadeh/Ken Filiano/RoyalLive At The Magic Triangle ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
The "magic" part of the title is certainly right – as there's a really special vibe to this recent performance by cornet legend Bobby Bradford – kind of that continuing sense of creativity that's marked his music for decades, and which continues to yield surprises like this! Bradford's really opened up his sonic bag in the past decade or so – and you can definitely hear that here, in his work with tenorist Hafez Modirzadeh, an improvising partner whose sense of textural interplay really complements Bradford's horn. And the pair are set up very well with Ken Filiano on bass and Royal Hartigan on drums – players who seem to step in at all the right moments, but fall back when needed. Filiano's also credited with "effects" – and we're not sure if those are on his instrument, or all of them – although we're guessing that most of the sonic splendor here comes from the musicians.

James BrownJames Brown Sings Out Of Sight (white cover) ... LP
Smash, 1964. Very Good+ ... $99.99
One of the stranger James Brown albums from the 60s! The record is one of the only vocal albums he cut for the Smash label – and it was issued during a time when James was strangely contracted to two labels – King and Smash. His dual contract situation was that he couldn't record any new original vocal material for Smash – apart from the title track "Out Of Sight", which had already been snuck on the market, and which is a sinister funky track built along the same lines as "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" (not on this album.) Apart from that track, the rest of the material on the record is more traditional R&B and pop stuff – sung by James in a strong soul style. Titles include "Somethin Else", "Nature Boy", "Maybe The Last Time", "I Wanna Be Around", "I Got You", and "Good Rockin Tonight". The liner notes are great, too – with some pretty interesting information on Brown's career, and African-American politics. LP, Vinyl record album

"Kansas City" is, of course, a version of the famous Lieber/Stoller hit – done here by James in a nice deep soul style that makes us like the cut more than we might! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a bit of marker.)

✨✧ Jack BruceSongs For A Tailor ... CD
Universal/Polydor (UK), 1969. Used ... $8.99
A wild batch of jazz rock tunes – recorded by ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce, along with a host of like-minded luminaries that include Chris Spedding, Harry Beckett, Dick Heckstall-Smith, and John Hisemann. Unlike Bruce's first solo album – Things We Like – which was an all-jazz outing, this album features Bruce singing as well, and an overall approach that has more of a rock-based song structure – yet still many of the expansive styles embraced by the Brit jazz rock generation of the time. Titles include "Rope Ladder To The Moon", "Theme For An Imaginary Western", "Tickets To Water Falls", and "The Clearout". Plus, CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Ministry Of Bag (demo)", "Weird Of Hermiston (alt mix)", "The Clearout (alt mix)", and "Ministry of Bag (alt mix)". CD

Tony BrunoHell's Angels '69 ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
An excellent biker soundtrack – very different than the usual bag! For this one, Tony Bruno has come up with some great instrumentals – many of them jazzier than you'd think, and a few with some nice funky Capitol instrumental touches – not so much studio fuzz guitar, as they are groovy numbers that are a lot less hairy than the guys on screen in the movie! The change is a nice one – not as rockish as the regular biker soundtrack – although there are some vocal numbers too, done in the Tower/Sidewalk sort of style. Yet it's the instrumentals that really send us – and which make this album well worth seeking out! Titles include "Chase Of Death", "Goofin", "Bass Lake Run", "Hang On Tight", and "Al and Alice".

Caper & CarsonCaper & Carson ... LP
Janus, 1973. Sealed ... $5.99
Mellow soul/rock LP by the male/female team of Donna Carson and Hedges Capers. The vocals are a bit weak, and not really our bag, but the band backing them is pretty good, and features some excellent bass work by Carol Kaye that shows up on the intros to a number of the songs. Tracks include "Daytona", "Guava Jelly", "I Want To Thank You", and "Real Fine Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

Circuit Des YeuxReaching for Indigo ... CD
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
An extremely beautiful set from singer Haley Fohr – a record that combines late folk singer/songwriter styles with some of the deeper, darker tones of the post-punk generation too – in a way that feels like Tom Rapp into 4AD, or maybe Robbie Basho into Diamanda Galas! The songs are maybe more understated than both of those 80s references might imply – handled with less of a self-conscious mode, with light instrumentation provided by various members of the Chicago scene – in this seamless blend of acoustic and electric elements, often at a level that makes it difficult to tell which instrument is which – or where the overall sound is coming from. But that's also part of the album's success – as it's got a slightly unsettling feel that really matches the vibe of the lyrics, even when the flow of Fohr's vocals can be melodically seductive. Titles include "Black Fly", "Philo", "Paper Bag", "A Story Of This World Part 2", "Geyser", "Falling Blonde", and "Brainshift". CD

✨✧ Count Basie OrchestraLegend, The Legacy ... CD
Denon (Japan), 1989. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The Basie Orchestra pays tribute to their departed Count – and the groove here is every bit the sort you'd expect from the ensemble at their height! Frank Foster's in the lead with the group at this point, and he's definitely back in the Basie bag, after stretching out soulfully on his own in the 70s – guiding players who include Eric Dixon, Danny Turner, and David Glasser on reeds; Sonny Cohn, Byron Stripling, and Mike Williams on trumpets; Bill Hughes, Mel Wanzo, and Clarence Banks on trombones; and rhythm from Carl Ace Carter on piano, Cleveland Eaton on bass, and Duffy Jackson on drums. Carmen Bradford sings a bit, and titles include "Papa Foss", "Bring On The Raindrops", "Katherine The Great", "Whirly Bird", and "The Count Basie Remembrance Suite". CD
(Out of print, promotional stamp on CD.)
