✨✧ Beau WilliamsBodacious ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bodacious grooves from the great Beau Williams – an under-remembered talent in Capitol's excellent early 80s soul run – a strong male vocalist with a great approach to an 80s groove! The tunes here are often set to stepping beats and keyboard lines with a clear, clean sort of sound – never that too-commercial groove that sometimes held back other male singers at the time – and instead that lean grooving style that made Capitol so great. Titles include an early take on "C'Est La Vie", plus "Dark & Lonely Nights", "Danger Zone", "Don't Say No", "Slave", and "You Do It". CD

Norman ConnorsValentine Love – The Buddah/Arista Anthology ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A fantastic collection of work from Norman Connors – a musician who first started out playing drums in spiritual jazz groups at the start of the 70s, then moved on to take over the worlds of funk and soul! Connors' material of this time was essential at bringing a new sort of depth to soul music – taking some of the lessons learned in the farther reaches of the underground, and working them into a new tapestry of sophisticated expression – sounds that were able to fold together lots of styles and spirit, and help elevate their audience at the same time. This package might be the best we've ever seen to bring together Norman's work of the period – as it also includes some of the Aquarian Dream and Starship Orchestra recordings, as well as Connors tracks with singers who include Michael Henderson, Jean Carn, Gloria Jones, Prince Philip Mitchell, Phyliss Hyman, Eleanor Mills, James Robinson, Al Johnson, and Beau Williams. 34 tracks in all – and titles include "So Much Love", "Dindi", "Saturday Night Special", "We Both Need Each Other", "Captain Connors (12" version)", "Say You Love Me", "This Is Your Life", "Stella", "Handle Me Gently", "Your Love", "Invitation", "Be There In The Morning", "Take It To The Limit", "Mr C", "She's Gone", "You've Been On My Mind", "Melancholy Fire", "Romantic Journey", "Slewfoot", "Give The Drummer Some", "Valentine Love", "Once I've Been There", "Phoenix", "Once Again", "You Are My Starship", "Betcha By Golly Wow", "Kwasi", "Maiden Voyage", and "Disco Land".

✨✧ Buster WilliamsGriot Liberte ... CD
High Note, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the deepest albums we've heard from Buster Williams since the 70s – and a massively beautiful set of tracks that intertwines vibes, piano, and bass with some incredibly soulful touches! Williams wrote all the tracks on the set, and also produced the session himself – bringing a warmth and patience to the album that really allows just the right space for creative interplay on the tunes. The lineup features Williams on bass and piccolo bass, Stefon Harris on vibes and marimba, George Collingan on piano, and Lenny White on drums – and the whole thing was recorded at the Rudy Van Gelder studios with really tremendous sound! Titles include "Nomads", "Related To One", "Joined At The Hip", "The Wind Of An Immortal Soul", and "After The Ninth Wave". CD

✨✧ Pat WilliamsHeavy Vibrations ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful Verve madness, and a darkly twisted batch of easy instrumentals, put together by the silent genius Pat Williams. The songs are mostly covers – like "Whiter Shade of Pale", "Get Back", "Joy Joy", and "River Deep Mountain High" – and the record's got a great version of Edu Lobo's "Ponteio". Dick Hyman plays organ, and there's lots of other nice jazz players in the group! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles McPhersonBeautiful! (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from Charles McPherson – his first for Xanadu in the mid 70s – wherein his amazing quartet breathes fresh, bop-inspired urgency and a deft sense of soul into some older standards – maybe even as strongly as on his best work for Prestige in the 60s! It's truly timeless – holding true to the classic songcraft of the compositions, but leaving plenty of room to riff and improvise in ways that add both subtle shades and energetic flourishes. The group includes Duke Jordan on piano, Sam Jones on bass and Leroy Williams on drums – all on their game. Beautiful indeed! Songs include "It Could Happen to You," "Lover," "This Can't Be Love", "They Say its Wonderful", "Body And Soul","But Beautiful". CD includes a bonus track, and it's a great one – a tremendous 9 minute take on "All God's Children Got Rhythm". CD

Roy AyersFeeling Good ... LP
Polydor, 1982. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Stellar sounds from the great Roy Ayers – an early 80s album for Polydor, but a set that's still got the wonderfully tight, wonderfully groovy feel of his late 70s albums for the label! Roy's really perfected his sense of balance by this time – and does a great job of balancing groovers with sweet mellow steppers – the kind of cool, compressed, jazzy numbers that we love so much! Ayers heads for the clubs one minute, the bedroom the next – and draws us in beautifully whichever direction he takes – thanks to some sublime vibes and electric piano – and great lead vocals from Roy, and other singers who include Terri Wells, Vivian Prince, John King, and Ricky Williams. Titles include "Ooh", "Let's Stay Together", "Feeling Good""Knock Knock", "Turn Me Loose", "Stairway To The Stars", and "Our Time Is Coming". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BarronInnocence ... CD
Wolf/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99
Sweet electric keys from Kenny Barron – one of those few excellent 70s albums that have the pianist hitting some Fender Rhodes! The record has Kenny playing electric on most of the set – in a mode that's as open, and spiritual as his best work for the Muse label – maybe even better, as the tracks have a freer style, and really open up with a beautiful sense of energy! The other players here really make the record special, too – and include Sonny Fortune on alto sax, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Buster Williams on bass, Ben Riley on drums, and Billy Hart on percussion – a lineup that really gives the whole thing a level that's right up there with classics on the Black Jazz or Strata East label. As always with the electric piano, Kenny hits some wonderful notes, colors, and tones that make us wish he used the instrument all the time – on titles that include "Sunshower", "Innocence", "Bacchanal", and "Nothing To Fear".

✨✧ Naomi Beckwith & Dieter RoelstraeteFreedom Principle – Experiments In Art & Music 1965 to Now ... Book
Museum Of Contemporary Art, 2015. New Copy ... $28.99 35.00
A beautiful book from the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Chicago – done in collaboration with a great exhibit on the AACM and AfriCobra arts movements of the 60s! The former is very well-known to Dusty Groove customers – the musical movement that gave focus to the ideas and energies of jazz musicians Roscoe Mitchell, Muhal Richard Abrams, Anthony Braxton, George Lewis, Nicole Mitchell, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Douglas Ewart, and so many important Chicago talents of the past 50s years. AfriCOBRA was a visual movement, and equally important – and often worked alongside the AACM with similar empowerment and consciousness-raising ideals – presented here in a stunning range of works that include paintings, murals, prints, sculptures, installations, and other striking forms – by artists who include KeRa Upra, Mitchell Caton, Wadsworth Jarrell, Yaounde Olu, Jose Williams, and others – brought together here in a range of beautiful images. The book features way more than the exhibit – including images of older artifacts, such as posters – and essays by curators Naomi Beckwith and Dieter Roelstraete – as well as George Lewis, Rebecca Zorach, and a collective conversation with Tomeka Reid, Hamza Walker, and Romi Crawford. Other great bits include a chronology of creative activity – and a topography of the movements, mapped over Chicago with photos of key locations. 263 pages, softcover, in full color. Book

Magnus BrooSwedish Wood ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2010. New Copy ... $18.99
Swedish wood, with plenty of brass – thanks to bold, imaginative work as a leader from trumpeter Magnus Broo – easily one of the most important voices on his instrument working today! The group is a beautifully tight quartet – and Broo's trumpet gains plenty from the equally bold basslines of Torbjorn Zetterberg – a player whose name may not be familiar to American audiences, but one who always seems to set a special sort of fire whenever he joins a session! There's a pulsating grace from Zetterberg that really gets things going – maybe the "wood" promised in the title, given the richness of its tone – which Magnus matches with this beautifully blown mix of soul and soaring, almost in a legacy of Woody Shaw or some of his generation. And the group also features added bass from Joe Williamson – making for a twin bottom-up groove that reminds us of similar sessions from the 60s – punctuated nicely by the drums of Hakon Mjaset Johansen. Titles include "I Hear You", "Swedish Wood", "Oh What A Beautiful Day", "Acoustic Kitten", "Thoughts Are Things", and "New Weather". CD

Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSpanish Suite ... LP
Zulu/Tizona, 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
Great lost work from the legendary Phil Cohran and his Artistic Heritage Ensemble – a composition that was recorded during the group's late 60s years on the Chicago scene – but which has never been released until now! The album stands beautifully alongside the group's self-titled classic and their tribute to Malcolm X – and like those amazing records, this one has a feel that's all its own – an exploration of Moorish elements in Spanish culture – which comes off as a Latin-inflected sound with African roots! The lineup here is similar to other Cohran classics – Donald Myrick on baritone sax, Charles James Williams on alto, Eugene Easton on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, Aaron Dodd on tuba, Pete Cosey on guitar, Henry Gibson on congas, and Louis Satterfield on bass – a mix of musicians that includes members with Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire listed in their resumes! Cohran's vision in the suite is wonderful – and the music has all the depth and righteous energy of his self-titled record, but a bit more Latin fire too – a beautiful blend that really makes us appreciate his genius even more than before, and which finally gives us another record of his to love after all these years.

Charles DavisFor The Love Of Lori ... CD
Reade Street, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99
Charles Davis is something of a silent hero in jazz – a musician who's been around for decades, with an amazing legacy of performances – and an artist who always gives his best, often without any fanfare of attempt to overstate his own ego! This album's a beautiful demonstration of that quality – as Davis leads a group through some beautiful compositions and arrangements of his own – all with a mixture of soul and lyricism that few other players could hope to deliver this effortlessly. The group's a sextet who play together as if they've been recording for decades as a lineup – Steve Davis on trombone, Joe Magnarelli on trumpet, Rich Germanson on piano, David Williams on bass, and Neil Smith on drums – all exploding with a sense of joy that really illuminates the tunes, and sets a fantastic scene for the solos. Titles include the Davis originals "For The Love Of Lori", "Kid", and "Into The Himalayas" – plus versions of "Begues", "Cedar's Blues", and "Juliano". CD

Miles DavisESP ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good ... $29.99
An album of dark and subtle beauty – and still one of our favorite Miles Davis albums of all time! The set's not as earth-shattering as some of Davis' other work of the 60s, but that's why we like it so much – because the emerging genius of the group with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Tony Williams is held in a really special place here – one that ruminates quietly on space and soul, while Davis majestically directs tones and colors that he'd never gotten in a small group format before! Titles include the amazing "Iris", one of Miles' most haunting themes – plus "Little One", "RJ", "ESP", "Mood", and "Agitation". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve DavisFor Real ... CD
Posi tone, 2013. Used ... $6.99
Beautifully-blown work from Steve Davis – one of our favorite contemporary talents on the trombone, and an artist who can really make the instrument swing in an old school sort of mode! This set may well be one of Steve's most soulful in years – a great date with Larry Willis on piano, who brings in this mix of groove and lyricism to his lines – and partners with Davis at a level that recalls vintage collaborations between Curtis Fuller and Cedar Walton! The Davis/Willis team is augmented beautifully by tenorist Abraham Burton, whose lines have a slightly deeper edge, and really add a great layer to the sound – and the rhythm swings strongly with Nat Reeves on bass and Billy Williams on drums. And once again, Davis is a fountain of great new material – a wealth of original songs that include "For Real", "Nicky D", "Days Gone By", "Big East", "Daylight", "I Found You", and "Tactics". CD

Stan LeveyWest Coast Rhythm (Stan Levey Plays The Compositions Of Cooper, Holman, & Giuffre/Happy Minors) ... LP
Bethlehem/Affinity (UK), 1954. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A split UK album – with two rare 10" sessions from 50s Bethlehem Records! Side one features the first album ever from drummer Stan Levey, but a set that already shows his mighty talents as a leader! Stan wisely chose some great songs to work with here – penned by west coast highlights Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, and Bill Holman – and taken into a small combo mode that really shakes the tunes free of any of the larger Kenton-esque qualities of the composers. Giuffre is on the record – playing baritone in the sextet along with Zoot Sims on tenor, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Claude Williamson on piano, and Max Bennett on bass – about as great of a Bethlehem lineup as you could hope for at the time. Sims brings in a really rich sense of soul tot he record – and titles include "Drum Sticks", "Lightnin' Bug", "Exaktamo", and "Extraversion". Side two features Happy Minors – a hell of a cooker from bassist Red Mitchell – a set that's got a sound that's way more mature and modern than you might guess from the image on the cover! Red's at the helm of a hip combo that also features sharp tenor from Zoot Sims and beautiful work on valve trombone from Bob Brookmeyer – working here at that cool compressed height of his 50s style we love so much. Conte Candoli's in the group on trumpet, giving things a surprising sort of bite – and rhythm is completed by Claude Williamson on piano and Stan Levey on drums – players who can be bold one minute, and carefully quiet the next. Titles include "Kelly Green", "Once In A While", "Bluesology", "Happy Minor", and "Long Ago & Far Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Lloyd McNeillTori ... LP
Baobab, 1978. Very Good+ ... $43.99
A beautiful album of soul jazz flute tracks – one of the few self-released classics by the legendary Lloyd McNeill, a player who's never really gotten his due! The album's got a warm spiritual sparkle that brings together Latin and Brazilian touches with McNeill's own lyrical style – definitely in the mode of 70s spiritualists like Harold Vick or Sonny Fortune. McNeill's in the lead on flute, and most of the tracks have Dom Salvador on piano, Dom Um Romao on percussion, and Buster Williams on bass. With a rhythm team like that, you can imagine the soulful modal grooves on the session – and the album's got a number of nice tracks, like "Tori", "Sambinha", and "Tzigane". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles McPhersonSiku Ya Bibi (Day Of The Lady) ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most distinct early dates from reedman Charles McPherson – a unique "with strings" session recorded as a tribute to Billie Holiday – and with a style that shows off sides of McPherson's playing that wouldn't show up on other records for years to come! The album's got a beautifully understated quality – hip, adult arrangements by Ernie Wilkins – neither in his Basie-esque style of the early years, nor in any sort of slavish relationship to the Billie Holiday recordings of the 40s and the 50s either – which makes for a mode that just lets Charles flow with this wonderfully soulful tone on his alto – almost in a way that points towards some of Stanley Turrentine's music to come in such a setting. The core group features piano by Barry Harris, guitar by Earl Dunbar, bass by Sam Jones, and drums by Leroy Williams – plus larger backing by a string section – and titles include "Don't Explain", "Miss Brown To You", "Lover Come Back to Me", "Lover Man", and "God Bless the Child" – but all shaped beautifully and personally by McPherson!

Jimmy RaneyLive In Tokyo (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu, 1976. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A hell of a great jazz guitarist – working here in a really wonderful setting – a live date that both lets Jimmy Raney hit some beautifully intimate moments out front, but also lets him swing a bit too – thanks to help from Sam Jones on bass and Leroy Williams on drums! Raney still has that raspy tone that we first fell in love with on his 50s records – a clarity on the strings that easily made him one of the most important jazz guitarists of the time – but he's also got a more mature sense of chromes, which creates this beautiful dance of tones as his fingers move along the strings of the guitar – always clear in his vision, but still working with a sense of surprise that always keeps things interesting. Titles include "How About You", "Darn That Dream", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Stella By Starlight", "Watch What Happens", and "Anthropology". CD features the bonus track "Just Friends". CD

Max RoachIt's Time ... CD
Impulse, 1962. Used ... $14.99
Stunning! This is a beautiful album that's one of Max Roach's most powerful recordings, and a record that's been the inspiration for countless other imitations over the years. Roach leads a group with Richard Williams, Clifford Jordan, and Mal Waldron – and they're matched with a vocal chorus led by Coleridge Perkinson, who also did the arrangements for Donald Byrd's classic "with voices" albums. Unlike those, though, this set's a damn angry bunch of compositions, and the chorus wails away in a loud screaming powerful mode that will blow away any of your preconceptions about the "with voices" mode. The group sings wordless vocals (except for one cut, which has Abbey Lincoln singing in the lead), and provides a searing backdrop of sound for the band's razor sharp playing. Every cut's a winner, and the whole thing's a masterpiece! Titles include "The Profit", "It's Time", and "Another Valley". CD

Pacific Jazz, 1956/1958. Used ... $8.99
A beautiful pairing of players – one that makes for a wonderful album! Shank's at the height of his early powers here – working in a fluid west coast mode that less in keeping with the "blowin" of the title, than the magic he was known for crafting on his other sides from the time. Bud plays alto, tenor, and flute on the session – and he's paired with Bob Cooper, whose round tones on tenor and bass clarinet are a nice match for Shank's slightly edgier sound. Claude Williamson is on piano, Don Prell plays bass, and Chuck Flores is on drums – and titles include "Two Lost Souls", "Dinah", "Mutual Admiration Society", "Love Nest", "Just In Time", and "Blowin Country". CD also features a huge amount of bonus tracks, from a similar session with Howard Roberts on guitar! CD

Wayne Shorter5 Original Albums (Night Dreamer/Soothsayer/Etcetera/Adam's Apple/Schizophrenia) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $21.99
Five very different albums from the great Wayne Shorter – all from a time when he was really taking off with his music! Night Dreamer is one of the greatest Wayne Shorter albums for Blue Note, and one of our favorite jazz albums ever! The record is a masterpiece of lyrical delight – soul jazz mixed with slight touches of experimentalism – but still warm, swinging, and personal enough to captivate even the most novice jazz listener. A players are at the top of their game – and in addition to Shorter's tenor, the group features Lee Morgan on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The tracks unfold in lyrical, modal beauty in a really wonderful way that was barely ever duplicated again – and titles include "Night Dreamer", "Oriental Folk Song", "Virgo", "Charcoal Blues", "Armageddon", and "Black Nile". Soothsayer is a great Wayne Shorter session from the mid 60s – recorded then, but not issued until 1979, for some incredibly unexplained reason – especially given the strength of the set! The group is distinctly modern, and features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, James Spaulding on alto, and McCoy Tyner on piano – all of who were committed to heavily pushing the boundaries of their playing at the time. Added to the mix is the youthful Tony Williams on drums, fresh from work with Miles Davis, and playing with an incredibly free hand on the kit – plus the great Ron Carter on bass. The resulting mix of tracks is a beautiful example of how these mid-60s Blue Note sessions could keep firmly in touch with modern developments in jazz, yet never lapse into the kind of sloppiness that could sometimes ruin sets like these on other labels – always with a keen sense of timing and rhythm, and a sharpness that made Blue Note's "new" newer-sounding than most. Titles include "Lost", "Angola", "The Big Push", and an amazing jazz take on Sibelius' "Valse Triste"! Etcetera has a very sharp-edged quartet sound – a bit modern and edgey at times, with sharp tenor lines from Shorter, piano from Herbie Hancock, bass from Cecil McBee, and drums from Joe Chambers. Wayne recorded the date in 1965, but the material wasn't issued by Blue Note until 15 years later – a delay that somehow made the whole thing even more of a gem, especially at a time when Shorter wasn't blowing this strongly on record. Tracks include four originals "Toy Tune", "Penelope", "Etcetera", and "Barracudas" – plus the Gil Evans number "Barracudas (General Assembly)". Adams Apple is an incredible album – one of our favorite Blue Notes ever! Despite the fact that the album's a spare quartet session, the record is one of Wayne Shorter's richest – and features his gutsy young tenor soloing insanely with a rhythmically intense combo that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – a wonderfully free-thinking rhythm trio! Workman's bass is especially strong, and it underpins the cuts with a throbbing pulse that takes them past any simple hardbop conventions. Every cut's a winner – and this is one album we reach for time and time again over the years! Titles include "Adam's Apple", "El Gaucho", "Footprints", and "Teru". Schizophrenia is a session from the late 60s that has Wayne Shorter pushing into a searching, spiritual groove, but one that's still filled with all the taught electricity of his earlier recordings on Blue Note! Shorter's accompanied by youthful modernists like James Spaulding on alto, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – plus the mighty Curtis Fuller on trombone, whose instrument here proves to be the same key extra ingredient that it was on the best Art Blakey sextet sessions of the 60s. There's a tight, soulful feel here that's sublime – an Adams Apple sort of groove, but a bit fuller – and titles include the classic "Tom Thumb", plus "Playground", "Schizoprhenia", "Kryptonite", "Miyako", and "Go".

Steve TurreSpirits Up Above ... CD
High Note, 2004. Used ... $8.99
A beautiful tribute to the genius of Roland Kirk – one that comes across with all the warmth and soulfulness of Kirk's classic recordings! 8 of the 9 tracks on the set are original compositions by Kirk – played by Turre in a style that recalls the brilliantly inventive and creatively playful genius of their original recordings – but which takes the tunes in a slightly different direction, as there's no Roland working triple saxes for the session. Instead, the horns are handled by James Carter on tenor and flute, Vincent Herring on alto and soprano, and Dave Valentin on flute on one track. Turre's trombone is wonderfully understated, but really gets the feel of the material – and the rhythm section's a strong one, with Mulgrew Miller, Buster Williams, and Winard Harper providing the loose soulful approach that graced Kirk's classic Mercury sessions. Titles include "The Spirits Up Above", "Hand Full Of Five", "ED", "Dorthaan's Walk", "Volunteered Slavery", "One For Kirk", and "Three For The Festival". CD
