✨✧ Ron CarterAnything Goes ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordDon't You Worry Bout A Thing ... LP
Kudu, 1974. Very Good ... $4.99
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! The setting here is large and full – put together beautifully by Bob James, with that sense of space for the soloist that makes his ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hank CrawfordHank Crawford's Back ... LP
Kudu, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hank CrawfordHelp Me Make It Through The Night ... LP
Kudu, 1971. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordI Hear A Symphony ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Not really a symphony, but a great album that features the soulful alto sax of Hank Crawford blowing over some rich larger backings from David Matthews – all with a sweetly funky Kudu sound! The style's a bit more polished than some of the other Kudu sessions of the time – almost a bit ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hank CrawfordWe Got A Good Thing Going ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A little sleepy, but with nice moments that have that easy funky groove that Hank was using in his best work during the early 70s. Arrangements are by Don Sebesky and Bob James – and the best numbers have Hank's alto soufully blowing with some sweeeet electric piano in the background. ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grant GreenMain Attraction ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Sealed ... $7.99
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! Grant's working here in a large group – Kudu style – with arrangements by David Matthews, but a sound that's still pretty lean ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HammondBreakout ... LP
Kudu, 1971. Very Good ... $6.99
A massive groover from the great Johnny Hammond – the famous 60s organist from the soul jazz scene, getting a whole new sound for the 70s here on the CTI label! Johnny was always one of those players who was ready to try something new – and the open, extended format of the label really ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HammondHigher Ground ... LP
Kudu, 1973. Very Good ... $8.99
Massive work from Johnny Hammond – stretching out here in some totally jamming grooves that really transform his style for the 70s! The sound here is a lot hipper and tighter than some of Hammond's more rough-edged soul jazz of the 60s – a groove that's a great precursor to his more ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HammondProphet ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the best of Johnny Hammond's albums for Kudu! The arrangements are by Pee Wee Ellis – yes, THAT Pee Wee Ellis, the guy who played alto for James Brown! Ellis gives the record a slightly different feel than other Kudu arrangers (like Bob James) might have, and the usual slow building ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny HammondWild Horses Rock Steady ... LP
Kudu, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent Kudu work from one of the greatest organists of the 70s – a player who really stretched out and opened up his groove during the decade! Johnny Hammond was also known as Johnny Hammond Smith back in the 60s – but by the time of his legendary run at Kudu/CTI, he'd hit a much ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

David MatthewsShoogie Wanna Boogie ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of the slickest of Dave Matthews' funk records from the 70s – but still pretty darn nice! Matthews was the mainman behind the legendary funk group The Grodeck Whipperjenny, and a key arranger in James Brown's sound of the Polydor years – but by this time, he moved into smoother ...

✨✧ Idris MuhammadBoogie To The Top ... LP
Kudu, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite different than Idris' funky drumming on early 70s jazz records – but not a bad little album on its own terms. As you'd guess by the title, the album's more of a disco/club effort than before, but thanks to some good arrangements by Dave Matthews – who'd worked some good magic ...

✨✧ Idris MuhammadHouse Of The Rising Sun ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A surprising jazz funk stunner from drummer Idris Muhammad – part of his great second chapter of work for CTI in the 70s! Idris is working here in a style that's very different than his heavy-footed funky work on Prestige and Blue Note – and while it's easy to criticize him for not ...

✨✧ Idris MuhammadPower Of Soul ... CD
Kudu/CTI, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from funky drummer Idris Muhammad! Idris is probably known for his funky break work on Blue Note and Prestige records sessions of the late 60s and early 70s – but by the time of this 1974 album, he was really expanding his style, hitting a laidback groove that went way ...

A great late 70s chapter in the career of funky drummer Idris Muhammad – moving into very different territory here than his early soul jazz with Lou Donaldson, and even his earliest solo material too!

Esther PhillipsAlone Again, Naturally ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of the deepest soul sets from Esther Phillips' 70s years on Kudu Records – a set with some nicely gritty grooves and a surprisingly earthy feel at times – especially when compared to some of her other albums of the time! Backings are by James Brown's old reedman, Pee Wee Ellis ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Great work from a fantastic time in the career of singer Esther Phillips – a point when she brought her soulful style to the CTI/Kudu Records label – and cut some of the best material of her career!
