Bob Downes Open MusicMixed Bag (plus Reqiuem For Faruq Z Bey) ... CD
Openian, 1970s/1980s/2012. New Copy 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Dusty Groove CoffeeEverybody Loves The Sunshine Coffee – 12oz bag (whole bean) ... Misc
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!

Willie MitchellSoul Bag ... CD
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

Arthur Russell & OthersSleeping Bag Sessions ... CD
Sleeping Bag, 1980s. Used ... $7.99
Dancefloor jams, post disco soul, early NYC hip hop beats and straight up amazing 80s NYC progressive club genius from Arthur Russell – a compilation of great tracks he performed on, authored, remixed, edited or produced for Sleeping Bag in the early-to-mid 80s! Includes underground classics from Bonzo Goes To Washington, Dinosaur L, Felix, Indian Ocean and more – all touched in some way by Arthur Russell, with artists in the sessions from Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads and Bootsy Collins in Bonzo, to a collaboration with producer Nicky Siano in the tracks by Felix, and players from the earlier Loose Joints disco sessions. Incredibly important stuff on one hand, and appealingly funky 80s grooves on a more superficial level – and great stuff either way you slice it. Titles include "5 Minutes (B-B-B mix)" by Bonzo Goes To Washington, "Tiger Stripes" and "You Can't Hold Me Down" (extended mixes) by Felix, "Chill Pill (Underwater mix)" by Sounds Of JHS 126 Brooklyn, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "Go Bang!

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

✨✧ Jose FelicianoBag Full Of Soul ... LP
RCA, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ 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

✨✧ 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

Listening to Kurtis Mantronik productions all of these years later is a definite educational experience, given the huge influence the crisp synth sounds had on the future of hip hop – not only as a matter of necessity, given the cost of sample clearance, but also as an aesthetic choice. Archeological chin-scratching aside, it's a straight up good time, with a shiny electronic bounce – one that holds up well! Tracks include "Music Madness", "Who Is It?", "Ladies" remix, "Scream", "Listen To The Bass Part II". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used ... $2.99
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

One of a number of excellent self-produced albums by Vince Andrews – sax player, singer, and all around entertainer from the Ohio scene! The album's got Vince working in a variety of styles – from mellow soul to straight jazz, often augmented with unique touches – and although the record's got a bit of 80s synth on most of the cuts, it comes across with a well crafted soulfulness that gets past any of the cheap slickness that might have been intended. Titles include "Let The Children Play", "Inseparable", "I'm On My Way", "In The Bag", and "Hey Vince". LP, Vinyl record album

Dragon (Sweden), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Previously unissued material from the great Harry Arnold – excellent mid 60s big band sessions, as creative as they are hard-swinging! 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! Arrangements are by Wallin, Pete Jacques, and others – but it's Arnold who clearly knows how to make the whole thing hold together this well. Titles include "It's In The Bag", "Margie", "Blues For Nathan", "Cheryl", "Tina", "Per Spelman", "You've Got It", "I Knew It I Knew It", and "King Valiant". CD

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

Black NoteNothin' But The Swing ... CD
Impulse, 1995. Used ... $6.99
A great little record that came out a few years ago and never got the success it deserved. The album's got a beautifully classic sound, and feels like one of the more melodic and lyrical sides from the Blue Note late 60s era – like stuff by Lee Morgan or Duke Pearson. This critically acclaimed LA combo never resorts to tricks to put over their bag, and instead, the record's filled with the kind of solid writing and playing that we'd never expect from an album of this vintage (especially one on Impulse, who seem to be making a lot of other weaker choices with jazz). The record's one we come back to quite a bit, and it's filled with loads of nice tunes like "The Core", "Double Indemnity", "An Open Letter", and "West Coastings". CD

Elektra, 1977. Very Good- ... $5.99
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 BrownEverybody's Doin' The Hustle & Dead On The Double Bump (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Elemental (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Forget the "hustle" and "bump" in the title – as the set's not a disco cash-in set by the Godfather – and instead is an overlooked funky gem from the 70s! The set still follows strongly in the best modes of the early 70s – with that sharp JB-styled groove underneath – and in a way, the record's bit like Breaking Bread was to that group's great run – maybe a bit more focused, and slightly more upbeat – but still with a righteous approach to funk overall! David Matthews conducts, and players include Fred Wesley on trombone, Maceo Parker on alto, St Clair Pickney on tenor, and both Charles Sherrell and Leon Pendarvis on clavinet – and a few tracks are remakes of older numbers, nestled next to some newer gems. The set features the standout funky cuts "Your Love", which has a great break at the beginning, and "Superbad Superslick" – and other titles include "Hustle", "Turn On The Heat & Build Some Fire", "Calm & Cool", and a remake of "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag".

King/Universal (Japan), 1966. Used ... $14.99
Not as well-known as James Brown's live albums from the Apollo, but a really cooking set from the 60s that keeps up a plenty hard groove all the way through! As with most of James' live dates, the tracks here move at a clip that's often even faster than the studio work – played to perfection by the group with razor-sharp tightness that's simply breathtaking – possibly even more so in this environment. And although the crowd noise swells up at time, there's definitely less of the "fake" live sound of other JB albums of this nature – just a gritty little live party that blows the speakers out from all the action at the low end! Titles include versions of "Ain't That A Groove", "I Got You", "Bring It Up", and "Out Of Sight" – plus the groovy "Hip Bag '67" and "Let Yourself Go". Nice cover, too – with a back photo that has a picture of James and Hubert Humphrey, and a front cover that's a cool cartoony image of New York near the Garden! CD

Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in any setting – as it brings together funky bits with more straightforward soul numbers. Tracks include the great funky numbers "Money Won't Change You" and "Bring It Up", both of which show the new hard sound of James coming to the forefront – plus the tracks "Stone Fox", "Tell Me That You Love Me", "Money Won't Change You (parts 1 & 2)', "Let Yourself Go", and the hip message cut "Don't Be A Drop Out".

Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
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".

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.

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 DavisChronicle – The Complete Prestige Recordings 1951 to 1956 (8 CD set) ... CD
Prestige, Mid 50s. Used 8CDs ... $38.99
Wow! An incredible collection of seminal recordings from one of the most important figures in modern music! All of Miles' recordings from the Prestige label in one place, bound up in a well annotated box, and given a complete discography and lots of excellent photos. It's almost too much astounding jazz in one place! The list of sidemen and great LPs is almost too long to go over, but in addition to Miles' remarkable Cookin'/Relaxin'/Walkin'/Workin' sessions, there's all of the material issued as Bags' Groove, with the Modern Jazz Giants and loads more, and some of the stellar accompanists includes John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, Lee Konitz, Red Garland, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Milt Jackson, Paul Chambers, Art Blakey, Philly Joe Jones, and Max Roach, just to name a few. There's far too many tracks to list here, but there's takes of "Blue Room", "Conception", "Compulsion", "Miles Ahead", "Blue Haze", "Airegin", "Bag's Groove", "The Man I Love", "Green Haze", "Dr Jackle", "The Theme", "Trane's Blues", "'Round About Midnight", "Half Nelson", "My Funny Valentine" and loads more! CD

Jack DeJohnetteTime & Space ... LP
Trio (Japan), 1973. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A rare early date as a leader for drummer Jack DeJohnette – a set done for the Japanese Trio label, and with a vibe that's similar to Jack's wonderful records for Prestige! DeJohnette is not only one of the most inventive drummers in jazz at this point, he's also a musician who's willing to step way out of his usual bag – mixing in Fender Rhodes, organ, melodica, and marimba to the music – used in all these cool, creative styles alongside acoustic and electric bass from Dave Holland, who also plays a bit of percussion! The pair duet wonderfully together – with energy that's quite different than any sort of ECM-styled session of this nature – songs that have a good focus, and get really great results from both players. Titles include "Time & Space", "Lydia", "Hewineeway", "The Rain Forest", and "Turned Around". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou DonaldsonMidnight Creeper (Applause pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Applause, 1968. Very Good ... $4.99
Funky genius from Lou Donaldson – one of his first funky albums for Blue Note, and a real killer all the way through! The album has a great young group working with Lou – players that include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Lonnie Smith on organ, Leo Morris (aka Idris Muhammed) on drums, and George Benson on guitar – grooving with that really soulful early sound of his! The album has that hard Lou Donaldson funky sound that still sounds fantastic today – and titles include "Dapper Dan", "Midnight Creeper", "Bag of Jewels", and "Love Power".
