Nuyorican Soul

CD (Item 494729) Giant Step/Talkin' Loud, 1997 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock



A massive record – and an instant legend the day it was released! Masters At Work host the beautiful meeting of a host legendary artists – Roy Ayers, George Benson, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Jocelyn Brown, Vince Montana, and others – all united in a magical session that brings Latin firmly back to the dancefloor with the power and majesty of the best 70s recordings! The whole thing's amazing – a fantastic mix of Latin, funk, jazz, and house that's inspired a whole new generation of musicians – and which has still yet to be duplicated years later! Includes the massive remake of "I Am the Blackgold of the Sun", plus "Runaway", "Sweet Tears", and the great cover of Bob James' "Nautilus".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Brownswood/Talkin' Loud, 1993. Used
Although this comp came out a number of years ago, it's still one of the best-ever selections of Japanese acid jazz, and it features a great selection of rare tracks by artists that you'll know – like Nobukazu Takemura, Soul Boss Trio, Small Circle of Friends, and Kyoto Jazz Massive – ... CD


Go! Discs, 1994. Used
At this point, we hardly need to tell you what this is about. To many, a genre-defining period classic: haunting vocals, dark, spacey production, and beats so slow, you wonder if your turntable isn't busted. "Sour Times" was the one that put them over the top, and spawned too many ... CD
Ricky Tick/Milan, 2005. Used
An instant classic from Five Corners Quintet – acoustic jazz played with a dancefloor groove, and the perfect summation of a brilliant run of initial singles! The FCQ return jazz to its grooviest roots – played live, without processing or electronics, and able to hit a snapping groove ... CD
Main Squeeze (UK), 2001. Used
A soulful collective from London – led by the enigmatic Demus, but featuring a host of guest work on organ, keyboards, guitars, and vocals. The approach is a bit in the broken beat mode – but there's also a more expansive approach, stretching out with some spiritual grooves, especially ... CD
Blue Note, 2003. Used
An expansive exploration into the future of funky jazz – put together by DJ Smash, and even better than the first volume in the series! The set brings together recent tracks from a variety of Blue Note releases from around the globe – including a few from the ultra-tasty Blue Note ... CD

Inspiration (Yoshihiro Okino, Ryota Nozaki, et al)

Sony (Japan), 2006. Used
A brilliant follow-up to the first Inspiration set – and like that one, a unique collection of Japanese-only grooves – picked, mixed, and produced by a team that includes contributions from Yukihiro Fukutomi, DJ Mitsu, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Jazztronik, and Kenji Sakajiri of Especial ... CD

Fabio Nobile

Always Love
Deja Vu (Italy), 2008. Used
A killer full-length set from Fabio Nobile – an artist who's been making hip singles for a number of years, but who really sparkles in the space of an extended album! Fabio's groove is always warm and jazzy – a bit like some of the best moments from Italian contemporaries on Schema ... CD

Nostalgia 77 Octet

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2006. Used
The continuing evolution of one of our favorite bands in years – and another amazing record from the Nostalgia 77 Octet! Although these guys started out in the funk/sample mode of some of their contemporaries at Tru Thoughts, they've evolved tremendously into a live jazz outfit – ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2006. Used
The funkiest entry so far in the excellent Shapes series from Tru Thoughts – and a great illustration of the deeper grooves the label's been exploring in recent years! The collection is a great overview of some of the best beats, basslines, and vocals coming out of Tru Thoughts and related ... CD

Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience

Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience
P-Vine (Japan), 2007. Used
Ray Harris is a heck of a great keyboardist – one with plenty of influences from the 60s and 70s, and a groove that more than lives up to the title of the set! The style's a bit less conventionally "fusion" than you might expect – and instead, there's almost a club jazz feel ... CD

Ski Oakenfull

Rising Son
BBE (UK), 2005. Used
A soulful set of house-learned, song-based grooves from Ski Oakenfull – possibly his best work yet! Ski's working here with a line-up that includes Bluey of Incognito, producer/beatmaker Venom, vocalist Chi Turner, and on one stellar track, Amp Fiddler! That cut, "Hang On", is a ... CD


Cold Fact
Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1970. Used
One of a handful of enigmatic albums cut in the early 70s by Sixto Rodriguez – a Latin-tinged singer with a style that's a bit like that of Jose Feliciano, but trippier, and with more rock and folk touches! This set's probably his best one – thanks to arrangements and production by ... CD
