Black Flower — Future Flora ... CD 14.99

A very cool little combo – one who play funky jazz, but add in a globe's worth of influences – with an especially strong ear for the exotic reed sounds of Ethiopia in the 70s! The album's got warm keyboards at the core, driven by live drums and percussion – then topped with really beautiful work on cornet, alto, and baritone sax – the last of which has this deep, rich voice that really gives the record some soul – a special sort of quality that really sets these guys apart. There's a few other reed instruments in the mix there somewhere, and titles include "Ankor Wat", "Hora De Aksum", "Early Days Of Space Travel (part 2)", and "Ohm Eye".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Big Boss Man

Winner
Blow Up (UK), 2005. Used
It's been a few years since we last heard from Big Boss Man – but it's been well worth the wait, as these guys know how to cook up a mod groove better than just about anyone else! Winner's got a sound that takes us back to the swinginest days of London in the 60s – Hammond wailing over ... CD

Paolo Apollo Negri

Great Anything
Hammond Beat, 2011. Used
Groovy keys from Paolo Apollo Negri – working with diverse inspiration from spacey moog jazz to electric funk – with a guest vocalists on a few tracks and backing by the Hellfire Horns! Paolo has always had a great way of bringing in inspiration from classic keyboard jazz from the 60s ... CD

Quantic & Alice Russell

Look Around The Corner
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2012. Used
Mindblowing stuff – maybe the deepest album we've heard so far from Quantic, and a great step forward for Alice Russell too! After years of working in some of the best contemporary funk modes around, Quantic really expands his vision here – hitting a level of maturity that brings in ... CD

Big Boss Man

Humanize
Blow Up (UK), 2001. Used
Excellent mod work from this new UK combo! The album's got a hip late 60s Go-Go feel – with screaming Hammond organ solos, bouncing bongo, and lots of fuzzed out guitars. There's more than a bit of funk in the mix, too – and you might well think of these guys as a swinging London ... CD

Lack Of Afro

This Time
Freestyle (UK), 2011. Used
A bold step forward from Lack Of Afro – the modern funk & soul vehicle of producer, DJ and song stylist Adam Gibbons! The slew of singles and trio of full lengths that we'd heard prior to This Time have all been really impressive – a mix of breakbeat funk era and classic ... CD
BGP (UK), 1990s/Early 2000s. Used
Killer jazz and soul work from Snowboy – some overlooked sides that are easily some of the best grooves of his scene at the time! Snowboy first got his start as a Latin percussionist – adding a lot of firey energy to the London jazz scene in the early Acid Jazz years – but by the ... CD

Baker Brothers

In With The Out Crowd
Peddler (UK), 2005. Used
A searing set from The Baker Brothers – only the group's second album, but a smoking little live recording that almost blows away the first! These guys bring a new intensity to the deep funk scene – as they've got a command of their instruments that's so strong, they almost jam with ... CD

Piano Overlord (Prefuse 73)

Singles Collection 03 to 05
Money Studies, Early/Mid 2000s. Used
The most uncategorizable grooves in the canon of Guillermo Scott Herren – his Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and otherwise keys-and-drums centered Piano Overlord guise – and a collection of rare vinyl singles cut from 03-05! Maestro Scott wrote, plays, and produced all the tracks – done with ... CD
Jazzman/Now Again, 2008. Used
One of the hippest non-reissue records we've heard so far from the Jazzman Records empire – a massive set of grooves with a really odd sort of feel! Natural Yogurt Band work in spare, funky territory – serving up some very heavy drums (played by Wayne Fullwood, formerly of Little ... CD
Traffic, 2011. Used Gatefold
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
Blue Note, 1963. Used
A classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and ... CD

Stan Getz

Focus
Verve, 1961. Used
Oft-overlooked album that's actually one of Getz's most far-reaching of the 60s! Recorded in the year before he got caught up in his bossa pop frenzy, the record shows Getz as a darkly toned modernist, weaving out complex solos over the album's extended suite "Focus", written and ... CD
