AalonCream City ... LP
Arista, 1977. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Sweet modern soul with a sound that would get picked up on years later by the LA G-Funk scene. The album's produced by War's Far Out production team – and it's got a smooth sound that's mixed with moogy keyboards and compressed instrumentation on the best cuts. Some tracks are a bit too ...

Muhal Richard AbramsSpiral – Live At Montreux 1978 ... LP
Novus/Arista, 1978. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A wonderful album from Muhal – with all the soulful spiritualness of his best 70s work, more stripped down than later orchestrated efforts, and with a gentler more intimate approach than earlier work. The set is mostly solo piano – although Abrams also plays some occasional percussion ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arista/Novus, 1979. Very Good+ ... $14.99
One of their early classics, and still one of the greatest groups with roots in the Chicago AACM scene.

AirOpen Air Suit ... LP
Arista/Novus, 1978. Very Good ... $11.99
Classic AACM material from Chicago, strangely issued on Arista, but produced by Michael Cuscuna with all the care of a small-label session.

AirtoIdentity ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A soaring set of grooves from one of the world's greatest percussionists – a standout set as a leader from Airto, and a key set in his wonderful run of work from the 70s! The album's still got the loose, free feel of Airto's earliest work, and isn't nearly as crossover-oriented as some of ... (Brazil) read more CD

Nice 2LP set that brought the US some of the great recordings cut by the Art Ensemble while they were in Paris (some of which have also come out under the Black Lion imprint).

Arista/FTG, 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet jazzy soul from Gary Bartz – proof that he always sounds great, no matter what the setting! Production is by the team of Mtume and Reggie Lucas – in a style that has all the jazzy sophistication of their own work – a nice extension of Gary's work at Capitol with Larry ... (Jazz) read more CD

Warren BernhardtManhattan Update ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Keyboardist Warren Bernhardt was always a key part of the fusion scene in the late 70s – but he was also a musician who was maybe a bit apart from it, too – as he would allow himself some more introspective moments than some of his contemporaries – even while turning out some ...

Arista, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A jazz funk masterpiece, and THE record by the legendary Don Blackman – the only one issued under his own name for many many years, and a famous little set that's been sampled endlessly over the years, and for good reason! The vibe here is one that's barely been matched again – a blend ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony BraxtonAnthony Braxton (3LP Box Set) ... LP
Arista, 1978. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set ... $29.99
One of Braxton's most complicated works of the 70s – and one of the first times on record you can hear him composing for orchestra.

✨✧ Anthony Braxton with Muhal Richard AbramsDuets 1976 ... LP
Arista, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rich tones of Muhal's piano provide a perfect foil for Braxton, and one that gets him playing a wide range of styles on sopranino, clarinet, bass clarinet, and alto. The whole album resonates with a soulfulness that's not always apparent in Braxton's other work from the time – and the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arista (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years!

BreakwaterSplashdown ... LP
Arista, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 12.98
No splashdown here – as Breakwater are every bit as soaringly soulful as they were on their debut set! The groove here is that perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, ...
