Philly Joe JonesDrums Around The World ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... $6.99
A wonderfully experimental album from drummer Philly Joe Jones – and one that has just the right sort of "ethnic" feel to earn its "Around The World" title! Mostly, the ethnicity comes through in exotic reed work by Sahib Shihab, Herbie Mann, and Cannonball Adderley – who all play wonderfully on the album – alongside straighter sidemen who include Lee Morgan and Blue Mitchell on trumpets, Benny Golson on tenor, and Curtis Fuller on trombone. There's a bit of the Yusef Lateef late 50s sound on here – mixed with Philly's killer crack sock drum approach – a blend that comes off wonderfully throughout, and really makes the album a standout in Philly Joe's catalog from the time. Titles include "Land Of The Blue Veils", "Blue Gwynn", "El Tambores", and "The Tribal Message", which is a nice drum solo! CD also features a bonus take of "Stablemates". CD

Byard LancasterDocumentation – The End Of A Decade ... CD
Jambrio, 1980. Used ... $9.99
Recordings made in 1979, finding free Philadelphia altoist Lancaster in a variety of settings on the east coast! The tracks range from larger groups like the 10 piece Broadway Local Dance Band, to much smaller settings with Lancaster in duets or solo – and there's even a few numbers with theremin! The playing in the smaller groups is the most expansive, with some very free improv going on, but there's a couple of tracks with some funk to them too,like "Rib Crib" and "Philly Funk". Also includes "Mary Ann", "Sweetness", "A Bird's Eye View (Of The World)", "Blue Nature", "Imperial Police", and "Brotherman". CD

RootsPhrenology ... CD
MCA, 2002. Used ... $1.99
A new hip hop soul masterpiece!!! On Things Fall Apart ?uestlove, Black Thought, DJ Scratch, Rahzel and co. reinvigorated the scene with a Philly style soulful, melancholy groove that seemingly influenced the entirety of the NuSoul world – and it could even be argued that the Roots birthed that whole scene. Phrenology carries that torch, but it's so, SO much more, as the heady nature weighed the previous LP down in spots, and Phrenology is a sprawling exercise in expectation-busting perfection! "Rock You" kicks things off in explosive fashion, forgoing the laid back, yet angry soul backbone the group pioneered in hop hop, for a massive electro pulse pounding style – with Black Thought frenetically spitting confrontational wisdom until the synth unexpectedly dives into a short burst of live hardcore punk with "!!!!!!!" (we know what you're thinking, but trust us, it REALLY works). "Sacrifice" features a surprisingly effective chorus sung by Nelly Furtado, and other guest spots include Kweli heating up "Rolling With Heat", Ursula Rucker kicking some reverential poetry on "Waok (ay) Rollcall", and Musiq on the single "Break You Off". Other highlights include the late 80s Bomb Squad-like production on "Thought @ Work", the group's live instrumentation (and ?uestlove's always great trap work) and soul claps on tunes like "The Seed (2.0)", the epic "Water", and "Complexity" with Jill Scott. If you're solely of the 2 turntables and a mic camp you may want to head elsewhere, but if you've been anxiously awaiting the new Roots LP like we have, you'll be knocked straight on your arse, welled up with tears of joy. The best major label hip hop album of '02, and a beauty to go in the time capsule for future generations to learn, and mourn what they missed first hand. Amazing!!! Other tracks include "Quills", "Pussy Galore", and "Something In The Way Of Things (In Town)". CD

✨✧ Cody ChestnuttHeadphone Masterpiece ... CD
Ready Set Go, 2002. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Tripped-out soul from Cody Chestnutt – a double-CD set that's an instant classic! Cody's sound is really unique – a lo-fi blend of styles that stretches back to Sly Stone and Shuggie Otis, with elements of the current Philly underground, bits of crispy hip hop production, and even some traces of early 70s underground rock . Beats are lean and messy – and Cody's voice has an honest upfront approach that really works with the lyrics, which are some of the most striking that you'll find on an album of this nature. The whole thing's got an "in the bedroom" feel that's as carefully calculated as it is casually compelling – and Cody's style really holds up, even over the course of 2 CDs! Titles include "Boylife In America", "No One Will", "Smoke & Love", "The Seed", "Magic In A Mortal Minute", "The World Is Coming To My Party", "Out Of Nowhere", and "My Women My Guitars". CD

✨✧ Sun RaLanquidity ... CD
Philly Jazz/Evidence, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing album from Sun Ra – and one of the most in-demand for Dusty Groove customers! The record's actually a bit funky – if you can believe it – and was recorded with electric keyboards, bass, and guitar (played by the mysterious Disco Kid!) The album originally came out on the Philly Jazz label and was quickly dismissed by many Ra fans for being a funk sell-out album – but over the years, it's become a prized album for its cosmic sense of soul and appealing jazz dance style. In fact, it's probably the album that most folks expect when they've heard one or two Sun Ra tracks on a funk compilation and expect all of his albums to sound like that. Titles include "That's How I Feel", "Where Pathways Meet", "Twin Stars of Thence", and "There Are Other Worlds (They Have Not Told You Of)". Tough stuff, and a very unique Sun Ra LP! CD
