Joey Pastrana & His Bag Of TrixBreaking At The Party (vocal, inst) ... 12-inch
Peoples Potential, Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A wild cut from the great Joey Pastrana – a Latin leader that most folks remember from the boogaloo and early salsa years – but who steps out here with a sweetly electric groove from the 80s! In a way, the cut's similar to the shift that Joe Bataan made at Salsoul during the decade – picking up strong currents from 80s club and even an influence from hip hop – as Joey calls out at the start of the track in a great way, before sliding into a warmer soul vocal! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1972. Very Good ... $4.99
Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. "I Got A Bag Of My Own" is pretty nice too – a fast funky cut with a shouted chorus that really screams! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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 Tote Bag – 100% Cotton Black/White ... Bag
Dusty Groove Gear, 2018. New Item ... $2.99
A sweet small tote for bringing your records around town – a light bag that can carry up to 20 albums, but also fold up nice and small! The bag is cotton, and stronger than you might expect – but it's also light enough to stuff in a pocket, or keep within a backpack – ready at the go for when you've got some vinyl to tote, and pretty darn great for other small items too! Canvas is black, with a white Dusty Groove logo on one side – and the handles are big enough to slide over your shoulders if needed. 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!

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!

Richie HavensMixed Bag ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good ... $2.99
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".

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaSoul Bag ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A stone 60s smoker from Mongo Santmaria – and a great little set that really lives up to its title! The "soul" reference points to the record's host of 60s soul tunes, which are given a hip Latin spin by Mongo – working here with killer boogaloo arrangements from the great Marty Sheller – with a combo that includes soulful reed lines from Hubert Laws, Sonny Fortune, and Mauricio Smith – plus trumpet from Luis Gasca, and some killer drums from the legendary Pretty Purdie! The mix of jazz and Latin players on the record is really wonderful – and although the tunes are familiar, the presentation is mighty fresh – especially given the way the horn players manage to pack so much into their solos. Titles include "Baby What You Want Me to Do", "Hot Dog", and "Chili Beans" – plus cool versions of "Cold Sweat", "In The Midnight Hour", "Respect", and "Green Onions". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley TurrentineBluish Bag (New Time Shuffle/Stanley Turrentine plus previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1967. Used ... $13.99
60s genius from the mighty Stanley Turrentine – an under-reissued album, coupled here with a huge amount of bonus tracks! The first part of the CD features material that was recorded in 1967, but not issued until the 70s – partly on the self-titled Stanley Turrentine album, and partly on New Time Shuffle! The album's got Stan working strongly in the Joyride style of his previous Blue Note hit – with larger arrangements from Duke Pearson, in a groove that sets Turrentine's tenor up with plenty of soulful rhythms! Pearson brings a nice sense of lyricism to the session, even a hint of bossa at times – and the sharp-edged Turrentine tone is a welcome one throughout – setting sparks and illuminating corners of the music with a deeply personal feel. Titles include "Blues For Del", "Manha De Carnaval", "Here's That Rainy Day", "She's A Carioca", "What Now My Love", and "Night Song". Added to these tracks are 5 more tunes from a similar Pearson-arranged date recorded a few months later – one that's got a slightly fuller horn section, and a bit less of a bossa groove, but still plenty darn great! Duke brings in a bit more drama at times – especially on some of the slower numbers – and Stan picks up the vibe with his tenor, playing with an almost soundtrack-like sensibility. Titles include "Silver Tears", "Come Back To Me", "A Bluish Bag", and "With This Ring". CD

✨✧ Sadao Watanabe & Charlie MarianoWe Got A New Bag (Sadao & Charlie Again) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
A fantastic collaboration between two very different reed talents – Japanese saxophonist Sadao Watanabe, and Boston legend Charlie Mariano – each of whom seemed to always push each other to new heights in their music! That's definitely the case here, as Charlie lets his growing interest in Indian music inflect Sadao's sound with an even sharper edge than usual – opening both players to a spiritual, global core that would only expand more in later years – but which is completely revolutionary here, even all these many years later! Both Sadao and Charlie blow alto sax, and Mariano handles nagasvaram too – and the group features Masabumi Kikuchi on piano and Fumio Watanabe on drums – both musicians who get sharp and modern at all the right moments, and make the whole thing sound even more amazing than just a jazz-meets-world record. There's also some straighter jazz elements balanced beautifully in the mix – and titles include a haunting original by Mariano called "Palisades", a very moody version of JJ Johnson's great composition "Lament", and the tunes "Ragam Sinthubairavi" and "Kunji Kunjipesi Mathi Mayakkum".

Dinosaur L (Arthur Russell)24 24 Music ... CD
Sleeping Bag, 1981. Used ... $11.99
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 original set were simply numbered – "1", "2", "3", and so on – and come across almost as free-jamming instrumentals – but this reissue appends the songs with their 12" titles, so "#1" gets parenthetically entitled "You're Gonna Be Clean On Your Bean" and "#5" as "Go Bang!", plus this disc adds several 12" versions that were not on the original LP release, like Francois K's mix of 'Go Bang!" and Larry Levan's mix of "In The Corn Belt". Totally great stuff – as experimental as it is funky! CD

Spacey post disco dancefloor genius from Arthur Russell and Dinosaur L – the slow-building stormer "In The Corn Belt" – mixed by Larry Levan! Part 1 is on the A-side and Part 2 is on the flip – and the track builds from an atmospheric layer of keys into a heavily percussive blast with a heavy, heavy bassline and some searing guitar in the mix. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sleeping Bag/Get On Down, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 14.98
One of the most offbeat 12" singles to ever come from the hands of Arthur Russell – and that's saying a lot, given some of his other grooves! The approach here is much more experimental than some of Russell's other projects for Sleeping Bag Records – as the main track builds slowly from a mix of electronic rhythms and percussion, layered with deep sounds that really match the groove – but at a pace that's dark and moody, although building with tribal energy as things move on! There's a pan-global, past/future vibe going on here – one that reminds us how revolutionary Russell was at the time, and what a huge inspiration he was to later giants of the post-house, post-club global scene. Over 20 minutes of music between the two sides – more like a short album instead of a 12" single! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A weird and wild little groove – the kind of offbeat club cut that the Sleeping Bag label did so well in the 80s! "Tiger Stripes" has fast percussion with almost a tribal approach – and these cool birdcalls that come in before the vocals ring out with a catchy female chorus, keyboard lines electrify the groove, and the whole thing's got a catchy clubby style that's maybe in a Tom Tom Club mode! "You Can't Hold Me Down" follows in very similar form, but with this cool distorted guitar and keyboard line – a bit more post-punky/funky – ala Ze Records! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1976. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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 millennial classic from Erykah Badu – a record that came along right as the current century was starting up, to show a soulful path that would keep things strong for many years to come! The album grabbed a bigger audience than Erykah's first, but still kept things strong – really focusing in on that amazing vocal style that made the singer such a unique talent – and which always had edges that were sharper, and runs that were deeper, than some of her contemporaries who might be able to trick a phrase with a bit of spirit, but never deliver the whole thing in the way that Badu can! Themes are both personal and hinting at her political turns to come – and titles include "Kiss Me On My Neck", "Didn't Cha Know", "My Life", "AD 2000", "Bag Lady", "In Love With You", and "Booty".

A sweet little Count Basie get together – one of those small group sessions from the 70s, which made some of these later years of his career such a delight! The album's nicely relaxed – in the best Pablo Records way – almost an extension of the Verve swing modes of the 50s, when players really got to open up more on their solos – but maybe with a bit more Basie bite in the groove, too! The Count's on piano – and the group features Clark Terry and Harry Edison on trumpets, Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, Budd Johnson on tenor and baritone, Freddie Green on guitar, John Clayton on bass, and Gus Johnson drums. The Green/Basie sense of rhythm is as impeccable as always – and titles include "Ode To Pres", "Basie's Bag", "Like It Used To be", "Swinging On The Cusp", and "My Main Men". CD

✨✧ Black NoteNothin' But The Swing ... CD
Impulse, 1995. Used ... $4.99
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

Booker T & The MGsUniversal Language ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Very Good ... $7.99
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

It's got a nice mix of straight jazz cuts with others that have more of a heavy percussion sound, and one or two that feature the group singing harmony vocals, in the style of other bossa groups (although that was never their usual bag). Titles include the classic "Coisa Mais Linda", plus "Silk Stop", "Le Bateau", "Cataz", "Balanco Zona Sul", and "Onde Anda O Meu Amor". CD

King, 1967. Very Good- ... $23.99
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".

James BrownOut Of Sight ... CD
Smash/Polygram, 1964. Used ... $29.99
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". CD

Ray BrownRay Brown With The All-Star Big Band ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A standout session from bassist Ray Brown – one of a few 60s big band sessions recorded for Verve, featuring some searing solo work from Cannonball Adderley! Brown's name as a leader is possibly more as a compadre than the main driving force of the record – as the arrangements here are by Ernie Wilkins, often in the tightly soulful bag he was laying down at the time – and Adderley's presence as the main soloist certainly gives a Cannonball flair to the record. But there's definitely plenty of Brown's warmth guiding the whole session – and other players include Nat Adderley, Clark Terry, Melba Liston, Budd Johnson, and Yusef Lateef. Some tracks have Brown's bass right out front in the arrangements, dipping nicely and adding into the groove – and titles include "Tricotism", "Cannon Built", "Thumbstring", "Two For The Blues", and "Work Song".

Tony BrunoHell's Angels '69 ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
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".

Circuit Des YeuxReaching for Indigo ... LP
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Clarke, Red Garland, & OthersJazz From Carnegie Hall – Live In Paris 1 Octobre 1958 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1958. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
American jazzmen, playing in Paris – and working in the sort of all-star jam session mode you'd know from the Jazz At The Philharmonic recordings of the 50s! The format here is similar – some key players, in modes that run from swing to bop to more modern jazz – all brought together in an amazing display of spontaneous dexterity and individual imagination! This CD marks the first time this music has ever been issued, and the recording quality is great – really at a level that matches the best of those older Verve concerts – and the group is an unusual septet, with Lee Konitz on alto, JJ Johnson and Kai Winding on trombones, Phineas Newborn and Red Garland on pianos, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Titles include nice open takes of "Dahoud", "Afternoon In Paris", "Stardust", "This Can't Be Love", "Bernie's Tune", "Bag's Groove", "It's Alright With Me", "Laverne Walk", "Blue Lou", and "Star Eyes".

Bobby DarinBobby Darin Sings Doctor Dolittle ... CD
Diabolo, 1967. Used ... $11.99
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". CD

Betty DavisNasty Gal (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Island/Light In The Attic, 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 26.99
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 limited pressing of the classic – with liner notes, lyrics, and lots of cool photos! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisAll Miles – The Prestige Albums (14CD set) ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Italy), 1950s. New Copy 14CD ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful way to experience the early work of Miles Davis – all 14 of his 50s albums for Prestige Records, presented in a special box that contains each album in a tiny replica LP-styled sleeve! The music here is the stuff of legend – trumpet material that really transformed the way the instrument was used in jazz – as Davis really comes into his own as a leader, after time spent recording with Charlie Parker, and doing a bit for Blue Note – then really taking off in the full length space offered by the album format on Prestige! Some of these sets feature classic collaborations with the young John Coltrane, and others include work with Sonny Rollins on tenor, Milt Jackson on vibes, and JJ Johnson on trombone – as well as the famous rhythm section of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums! Some CDs feature bonus tracks from the OJC versions – and the albums include Dig, Miles Davis & Horns, Collectors Items, Blue Haze, Walkin, Bag's Groove, Miles Davis & The Modern Jazz Giants, Musings Of Miles, Miles Davis Quintet/Sextet, New Miles Davis Quintet, Steamin, Workin, Relaxin, and Cookin.
