Doin' Something

CD (Item 530852) Blue Note, 2001 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.70 39

Great stuff from one of the funkiest combos around! Soulive are part of the second wave of US jam-band funk acts – the sort of groovy groups that have been springing up in the wake of Medeski, Martin, & Wood's success over the past 10 years – and the combo's got a tight no-nonsense funk groove that mixes Hammond B-3, guitar, and drums into a monstrously heavy sound that will blow the top off your speakers! The group's debut CD – Turn It Out – sold loads as an underground indie at Dusty Groove, and this Blue Note debut by the group is destined for equally great fame. The core heavy funk sound is still firmly in place – and the group have added some extra elements, like the trombone of Fred Wesley, which meets up with some other horns on a few tracks, plus the vocals of Stephanie McKay, sings on one especially soulful number, "Romantic". Tracks include "Hurry Up & Wait", "Doin Something", "One In Seven", "Cannonball", "Shaheed", and "Solid". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2015, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Switched On funk from Mr Chop! Here's an homage to the innovative Moog-based LPs of the late 60s and early 70s – though the the great UK analog studio wiz Mr Chop is also doing it hard and heavy – it's not a light, airy and bubbly keyboard groove experience – this is spacey, ... CD

Soul Fire/Now Again, 2002. Used
Whomp! These guys bring it all down on the beat – hitting harder than Cassius Clay at the Rome Olympics in '60, packing bass, guitar, and drums into one funky punch – pounding out a hard heavy groove all the way through their entire debut LP! Of course, these guys have the talent to ... CD

Practice What You Preach
AAR/Daptone, 1993. Used
Deep deep funk from The Poets Of Rhythm – and a record cut at a time when all the world thought classic funk was dead! Apart from a few revivalist albums by older artists at the time, deep funk was plenty hard to come by at the start of the 90s – and often mis-recorded or badly mixed ... CD

A fantastic bit of lost hardbop – an obscure ABC album that has Kenny Dorham working with his Jazz Prophets group! The combo's a quintet with a unique lineup that includes Dick Katz on piano, JR Monterose on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and the whole set's ... CD

An excellent album that fits in nicely with Jimmy Forrest's early 60s sides for Prestige! The set was recorded in the company of one of Forrest's hometown talents from St Louis – the great Grant Green, who was quite young at the time – as well as with Harold Mabern on piano and Elvin ... CD
