Ron CarterAnything Goes ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Ron Carter gets sweet and funky on this 70s classic for Kudu Records – a set that's a fair bit different than some of Carter's acoustic trio sides of the decade, or some of his more high-concept work in recent years! The approach here is free and flowing – larger arrangements penned by ... (Jazz) read more CD

Hank CrawfordCajun Sunrise ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Hank Crawford comes across here as much as a soul star as a jazz musician – as he sings on half the album's tracks, and delivers his trademark alto solos throughout! The album's got a similar vibe to some of Crawford's other CTI/Kudu material of the 70s – but the presence of vocals ... (Jazz) read more CD

Hank CrawfordDon't You Worry Bout A Thing ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Sweet soulful jazz from reedman Hank Crawford – one of his killer Kudu sessions from the 70s – all of which really helped Hank redefine his sound!

Hank CrawfordHank Crawford's Back ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Hank Crawford turns his back on the cover of this sweet little set from Kudu – but the groove itself is very upfront, strongly in the best mix of funky jazz and club the label had going down into the late 70s! Arrangements are by David Matthews, who keeps things lean and mean, even when the ... (Jazz) read more CD

Hank CrawfordHelp Me Make It Through The Night ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Hank Crawford's first big records of the 70s – a really great set that helps him shake off some of his stock modes of the 60s and find a very different groove! A big part of the album is arranger Don Sebesky, who gives Hank a backdrop that's sophisticated and smooth, yet still pretty ... (Jazz) read more CD

Hank CrawfordWe Got A Good Thing Going ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Early CTI/Kudu material from alto legend Hank Crawford – part of a strong 70s run that helped him find a whole new audience for his soulful sound! Crawford got his start with Ray Charles, and cut some classic albums for Atlantic in the 60s – but during the 70s, his sound really warmed ... (Jazz) read more CD

Kudu, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most successful albums ever from guitarist Eric Gale – a laidback understated player whose mellow sound had a tremendous influence on mainstream jazz funk in the 70s!

✨✧ Grant GreenMain Attraction ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall!

One of the slickest of Dave Matthews' funk records from the 70s – but still pretty darn nice!
