✨✧ Young DisciplesRoad To Freedom ... CD
Talkin' Loud (UK), 1991. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soul albums of the past 20 years – served up here in its original format! When this killer came out in the UK in 1991, it was one of the best soul records we'd heard in years. Carleen Anderson, the then-unknown daughter of Bobby Byrd & Vicki Anderson, sung some of the deepest vocals we'd heard in years – and she was backed by funky soundscapes filled with references and homages to greats like Roy Ayers, Leroy Hutson, Leon Ware, 24-Carat Black, and many others. The record was (and is) impeccable – and it's a wondrous treat for fans of the kind of rare groove material we stock at Dusty Groove. Yet when it was originally issued in the US, Polygram stupidly "hip hopped" up the whole thing: remixed tracks, dropped vocals, and generally made the whole thing a pandering waste of an album that sounded like just another weak DJ with vocalist effort. Here, though, we've got the album in it's original format – with 10 incredible tracks, and stellar performances by the likes of Carleen Anderson, Master Ace, Johnny Lytle, Maceo Parker, and others! A treasure, and one that still sounds as fresh today! Tracks include "Apparently Nothin", "Talkin What I Feel", "All I Have", "As We Come", "Step Right On", and the majestic "Freedom Suite"! CD

CheebacabraRetouched ... CD
Mackrosoft, 2000s/2015. New Copy ... $8.99
Cheebacabra return to the funky fold – with a set that offers up both unreleased material for the sessions from their previous three records, plus remixes of tracks from those albums as well! The remixes take a variety of approaches – some really cutting into the tunes, some layering more elements on top – including some nice instrumental twists – and the studio outtakes are used in between each remix track, almost like cool little "skit" instrumentals, as you'd find in a classic hip hop set! We especially love these outtakes – as they're lean, and mighty funky – often with great drums and keyboards – and remix tracks include "Osgood Schlatter (DJ Dinya rmx)", "Adventures Beyond (Cheeba rmx)", "Pass The Information (Art Hodge rmx)", "The Delivery (9dw rmx)", "Hidden Valley (Funkscribe rmx)", and "The Players Rendezvous (Naoki Yoda rmx)".

Joe PassFor Django ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
An album dedicated to the great Django Reinhardt – but one that also comes across with plenty of west coast touches! The format is somewhat Django-esque – with lead guitar work from Joe Pass, plus rhythm guitar support from John Pisano – creating some of the guitar interplay you'd have in a gypsy swing record – but the groove's also a bit more modern than some of Django's classics, and there's a lighter, breezier approach here that's very much in the mode of other Pass records from the 60s – at least the small group ones! Tracks include "Django", "For Django", "Fluer D'Ennui", "Django's Castle", and "Nuages". CD

Don PullenRichard's Tune (Solo Piano Album – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sackville/Delmark, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Really wonderful work from Don Pullen – solo material, and some of his most soulful sides of the 70s – done in this long-flowing style that's completely sublime! Pullen's really at his best in this format – working in a way that's very free, but never overindulgent or overexpressive in the wrong way – a kind of magical connection between his soul and the piano, with results that are still among some of the greatest in the genre. All tracks are long, and very beautiful – and titles include "Richard's Tune", "Big Alice", "Song Played Backwards", and "Suite (Sweet) Malcolm". Features two unissued bonus tracks – "Kadji" and an alternate of "Big Alice". CD

✨✧ Stephane Grappelli & The Diz Disley TrioViolinspiration ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet sounds from Stephane Grappelli – working here in a very cool combo that features twin guitars from Ike Issacs and Diz Disley, plus bass from the great Isla Eckinger too! The guitars are acoustic and electric, but often used together in kind of a gypsy swing sort of mode – recalling Grappelli's classic work with Django, but updated nicely too – thanks both to the recording style, and the slightly more open-ended format of the tunes. Amazingly, Grappelli plays a bit of Fender Rhodes on the record too – and titles include "Hot Lips", "Joy", "Shine", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Solitude". CD
