✨✧ Count Basie & His OrchestraBasie's Beatle Bag ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ ... $7.99
An amazing little record – with results that are even greater than the sum of its parts! As you'd guess from the title, Count Basie takes on the 60s sounds of The Beatles – but he's doing so with arrangements from the great Chico O'Farrill – who really keeps things interesting throughout – throwing in those hip rhythms and odd twists and turns he first forged with his Latin recordings – in ways that definitely live up to the groovy pedigree of the tunes. And the Basie group's got a groovier sound than usual – probably due to the arrangements – and Basie plays some nice organ riffs on a number of the album's tracks – one of the Count's rare outings on the instrument, always a treat. Titles include "Help!", "Can't Buy Me Love", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "All My Loving", and "And I Love Her". Proof that The Beatles' influence was way farther reaching than you'd ever expect!

Bob Downes Open MusicMixed Bag (plus Reqiuem For Faruq Z Bey) ... CD
Openian, 1970s/1980s/2012. New Copy 2 CDs ... $9.99
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 Tote Bag – Black/Gold ... Bag
Dusty Groove Gear, 2016. New Item ... $1.99
A brilliant update of the Dusty Groove tote bag – one that's super-big, super-wide, and able to carry a few dozen albums or CDs at once! With a flat bottom you can spread the gusset wide, and slide in whatever you've got to carry – and while the overall design is somewhat lightweight (like those re-usable grocery bags you get at the store), you can still fit plenty inside. You might not want to lug around records in this bag all day long, but it will do in a pinch – and in the meantime, you can fit lots of other everyday things inside – including groceries, gym clothes, tools, sports equipment, and even a basketball (we tried it ourselves!)

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!

Dark Matter/Dusty Groove Gear, 2015. New Item ... $12.99
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!

Jose FelicianoBag Full Of Soul ... LP
RCA, 1966. Sealed ... $9.99
Great early work from Jose Feliciano – and definitely the "bag full of soul" promised in the title, as the album's got a wonderfully heartfelt feel all the way through! Jose's voice is warm and beautifully melodic, and the arrangements are a bit more straight ahead than on later releases – with occasional folksy touches that highlight Jose's acoustic guitar playing, but still let his beautifully sweet vocals come through wonderfully. The sound is sometimes spare, sometimes upbeat and rollicking – and tracks include "If I Really Bug You", "Help", "A Woman A Lover A Friend", "Masters Of War", "Where I'm Going", and "Go On Your Way".

Richie HavensMixed Bag ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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".

A very groovy set of short jazzy numbers from Quincy – a consummate expression of all the work he'd forged in the 60s on soundtracks and other jazz sides for Mercury! The album features Quincy working through a lot of soul numbers – jamming on them instrumentally with players that include Jerome Richardson, Bobby Bryant, Plas Johnson, Ray Charles, Carol Kaye, and Ben Tucker – plus a nice brace of percussion from Ray Bryant and Gary Coleman. Titles include "Boss Bird", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "I Got You (I Feel Good)", "Mohair Sam", and "Baby Cakes". LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $8.99
Willie's Soul Bag is pretty darn deep – a tight mixture of trumpet-heavy originals – all given sock-solid Hi Records soul production! The album's one of Mitchell's most smoking – and in addition to a few well-chosen covers, the set's also got some great originals – including some Jackson/Love numbers that have a definite Memphis Horns groove! There's some great Hammond at times – and in a way, the whole thing almost feels more like a Stax instrumental set than the sort of grooves we're used to hearing from Hi. Titles include "Apollo X", "Grand Slam", "Honey Pot", "Hawaii Five O", "Set Free", "Everday People", and "Young People". CD

One of Cal's first albums for Verve, and a great set of Latin tracks with Lonnie Hewitt on piano, Armando Peraza on bongos, Johnny Rae on timbales, and Paul Horn on flute. The overall sound is great – and the album has a straight-on jazzy groove that makes it much better than some of Cal's Latin efforts for Fantasy. Titles include "Davito", "Ben Hur", "Mambo In Miami", "Ecstasy", and the great cut "Pauneto's Point", issued here with no mention of Bobby Vince Pauneto! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie McLeanJackie's Bag ... LP
Blue Note, 1959/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks include "Boston Bust Out", "Red River Blues", "On The Way Home", and "D.B. Blues (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ernie WattsWonder Bag ... CD
Vault/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD

An incredible full album from Dinosaur L – the legendary New York dancefloor project of Arthur Russell! The group's a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking – all very much in the spirit of Russell's best quirky club work of the time, but with the added sound here of a more expanded approach – one that takes the tunes in a whole new territory than the more famous 12" singles! The tracks on the set are simply numbered – "1", "2", "3", and so on – and come across almost as free-jamming instrumentals! Totally great stuff – as experimental as it is funky!

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used ... $4.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". CD

Arnold's group here is at the top of its form – working together with a rich array of tones and colors that show the best legacies of 50s modern jazz in the large ensemble idiom – yet with a lean quality that really allows lots of voice from the soloists, too – a lineup that includes Arne Domnerus, Jan Johansson, Lars Farnlov, Bengt-Arne Wallin, and Georg Riedel!

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 sweet sweet set of electric 70s funk – recorded by Booker T during a brief, but well-needed reunion with the MGs! The sound here is quite different than Stax-era MGs – as Booker plays a range of keyboards, not just organ – and the grooves have these great jazz funk touches at the bottom – almost a CTI vibe at times, but packed with the tighter energy you'd expect from the group! Steve Cropper's guitar is great – super-fine, and razor-sharp – really helping cut a nice edge on the cuts – over bass from Donald Duck Dunn and drums from Willie Hall, who's the only new member of the group. In a way, the album feels like mid 70s efforts from Johnny Hammond or Jimmy Smith – sweetly soaring on a let-loose 70s vibe. Titles include the funky break track "Grab Bag", plus "Sticky Stuff", "Moto Cross", "Tie Stick", and "Space Nuts". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James BrownJames Brown Sings Out Of Sight ... LP
Smash, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

The group is super-tight, super-fast, and the whole set has that train running out of control sort of feel that James first cut on wax with his live sets starting at the Apollo Theater. Includes versions of "It's Too Funky In Here", "Get Up Offa That Thing", "Sex Machine", "Body Heat", "I Got The Feelin", "Jam", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "Gonna Have A Funky Good Time", "Try Me", and "Get On The Good Foot".

James BrownLove Power Peace – Live At The Olympia Paris 1971 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... $35.99
A lost treasure from James Brown & The JBs – a vintage live performance from the early 70s, and one that captures the group at the height of their powers! The format here is very similar to the excellent Revolution Of The Mind set – a totally funky, totally righteous live performance that has James and the group even more energized than in the studio – working with the kind of razor-sharp intensity that made them a legendary funk act – leaping from tune to tune with nary a break at all! Bobby Byrd acts as the MC, and joins James for a bit of vocals – and the group at this point still includes Bootsy Collins on bass, plus loads of great guitar from Catfish Collins, and Fred Wesley on trombone and Jabo Starks on drums. Dave Matthews handled some of the arrangements – and titles include "Soul Power", "Sex Machine", "Bewildered", "It's A New Day", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Brother Rapp", "Super Bad", "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag/I Got You/I Got The Feelin". Note – this is the first presentation of the material exactly the way that James Brown intended – as a 2CD set, without the remixing from the previous CD – pulled right from the original reels! CD

Tony BrunoHell's Angels '69 ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
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".

Butterfield Blues BandSometimes I Just Feel Like Smilin' ... LP
Elektra, 1971. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of their better and funkier LPs from the old days, and with some nice cuts like "Night Child", "Song For Lee", and "Play On" – which have some nice grooves at the beginning. Not our usual bag, but some nice moments. LP, Vinyl record album

John Cage with David TudorVariations IV – Volume II ... LP
Everest/Essential, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A very cool album that presents Cage at the height of his "chance" composition stage, and which features him and David Tudor playing a mixed bag of sounds on a sound system, recorded live at the Feigen-Palmer Gallery in LA. The work is the kind of stuff you always hear about with Cage, but can't find that easily on record. The album's a haunting melange of random sounds – from radio noise, to gamelon recordings, to sound effects – and it's striking proof of how fresh these ideas still are, even if they've been reduced to drivel by countless "experimental" post-rock bands. LP, Vinyl record album

CatalystTear & A Smile ... LP
Muse, 1976. Good+ ... $29.99
A fantastic record! This beautiful fusion group (featuring Odeon Pope on sax) plays excellent spare hard grooves with an electric feel that's similar to some of the stuff that David Axelrod was laying down at the time. The whole album's a bag of hip hop samples waiting to happen, especially the excellent cut "The Demon", which is done here in two parts that each have their own distinct funky edge. Other tracks include "Prayer Dance", "Suite for Albeniz", "52nd Street Boogie Down", and the great title track. LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1959/1960. Very Good ... $9.99
What can we say? Trane's work for Atlantic is still some of his best – and the versions of tunes on this album remain as some of the best-remembered tracks in his rich rich bag of songs. Titles include "Giant Steps", "Naima", "Cousin Mary", "Equinox", and the fantastic original 13 minute reading of "My Favorite Things". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby DarinBobby Darin Sings Doctor Dolittle ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of Bobby D's albums from his confused period in the mid 60s! Sounds sort of goofy, but it actually works, thanks to some swinging arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and the pep and zip of the score. Plus, the cover's got Bobby leaning on a push me-pull me, with a doctor's bag and a big stovepipe hat. Titles include "At The Crossroads", "I Think I Like You", "Fabulous Places", "Talk To The Animals", "After Today", and "My Friend The Doctor". LP, Vinyl record album

Betty DavisNasty Gal ... CD
Island/Light In The Attic, 1975. Used ... $24.99
The biggest-label release ever cut by 70s funk legend Betty Davis – but a set that's every bit as hard and heavy as the indie dates that preceded it! Davis is at the top of her form here – bad-stepping amidst the heavy drums and freaked-out guitars that easily made her one of the funkiest folks working in the 70s – an artist who was definitely very much into her own bag, and who's only finally getting her due all these many years later! In a way, the groove is even leaner than before – especially the drums, which are turbocharged with energy, and set a badass vibe for the record throughout – mixing up equal parts of rock, funk, and soul – almost with the genre-busting modes that wouldn't really show up on the New York scene until a number of years later. The whole thing kicks ass – and titles include "Nasty Gal", "Talkin' Trash", "Dedicated To The Press", "FUNK", "Getting Kicked Off Havin Fun", "Shut Off The Light", "This Is It", "The Lone Ranger", and "Feelins". Great new pressing of the classic – with a 32 page booklet that includes liner notes, lyrics, and lots of cool photos! CD

Miles DavisBags Groove (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Prestige, 1954. Near Mint- 2LP ... $99.99
Classic Miles Davis from that pivotal year of 1954 – featuring work from 2 different sessions, both of them great! The title track on the album is a key reading of "Bag's Groove", presented here in two versions, both recorded by a quintet that includes Milt "Bags" Jackson on vibes, Thelonious Monk on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – carving out the tune in a nicely modern idiom. The rest of the set features work by Miles in a quintet with Sonny Rollins and Horace Silver – again with support from Heath and Clarke – on tunes that include 2 versions of "But Not For Me", plus early recordings of Sonny Rollins' standards "Oleo", "Airegin", and "Doxy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited Analogue Productions pressing, #0158.)
