AirtoIdentity ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... About May 25, 2016
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

Brecker BrothersDon't Stop The Music ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About May 25, 2016
A stone classic from The Brecker Brothers – working here at a new level for 70s jazz fusion! Sure, it's as slick as it can be – with touches of club and disco grooves to give an even smoother edge to the jazz funk of the Brecker Brothers – but thanks to some solid soloing that's ...

Jennifer HollidayI'm On Your Side ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1991. New Copy ... $3.99
Jennifer Holliday's strong '91 set – with material that's par for the course for Arista soul efforts of the late 80s and early 90s – but Holliday outshines it with her powerful, emotional and wonderful voice!

Phyllis HymanSomewhere In My Lifetime (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Cherry Red (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Warm and wonderful work from Phyllis Hyman – a set that's a lot more mainstream soul than her music of a few years before, but she delivers it with a strong commitment to the more complicated styles of her roots!

A complicated set from vibist Mike Mainieri – with some very strong elements and players from the time!
