Ron CarterAnything Goes ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordDon't You Worry Bout A Thing ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About December 3, 2017
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 CD

Hank CrawfordHank Crawford's Back ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About December 4, 2017
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. New Copy ... About December 4, 2017
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 CrawfordI Hear A Symphony ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 CrawfordTico Rico ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hank Crawford's always been a great saxophonist – but he's also one that sometimes works even more strongly in a bigger group setting – as you'll hear on this 70s Kudu session with funky arranger David Matthews! Dave takes the groove forward from the sound that Hank sometimes had back ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordWe Got A Good Thing Going ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About December 4, 2017
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 CD

Grant GreenMain Attraction ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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 ... $4.99
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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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

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 CD

Kudu, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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 ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About December 3, 2017
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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

Kudu/CTI (UK), 1976. Used ... $14.99
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 ... (Jazz) read more CD
