Dorothy AshbyAfro-Harping ... LP
Cadet, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of the grooviest records ever – a sublime blend of African percussion, soulful orchestrations, and Dorothy Ashby's amazing electric harp! By the time of this landmark album, Dorothy had been knocking around the jazz world for a number of years, but it wasn't until she hooked up with ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dorothy AshbyDorothy's Harp (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cadet/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest Dorothy Ashby albums of the 60s – a set that has her already-great jazz work on harp backed by Chicago soul arrangements from Richard Evans – all in a blend that's somewhere in the territory of the Soulful Strings, but even groovier! And as an added bonus, Odell ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black MerdaBlack Merda (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cadet/Lilith (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Heavy duty fuzzy funk – and a landmark album from one of the most Hendrix-inspired groups of the early 70s! The style here is guitar funk with plenty of rock thrown in – all really fuzzed-up in production, and often a bit distorted – so that the group are kind of a lost link ...

Clea BradfordHer Point Of View ... LP
Cadet, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
Clea was one of a host of hip female singers that Chess was trying to bring up in the late 60s – and although she was less successful than bigger stars like Fontella Bass or Marlena Shaw, this album's in very much the same mode as some of the best Cadet female soul, with arrangements by ...

Odell BrownPlays Otis Redding ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A great step forward for Chicago organist Odell Brown – and maybe a hint of the influence he'd have on the world of 70s soul to come! Odell plays organ on a set of Otis Redding classics – in a tribute to the recently-passed Stax Records singer, but done with some great funk and soul ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Cadet, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Simple stuff – but very nice! Ray's working here in a live trio setting – ala Ramsey Lewis or Les McCann from the same time – and his work on the album has a similar gutbuckety soul feel to it.

✨✧ Ray BryantSlow Freight ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer album by soul jazz pianist Ray Bryant! The title track, "Slow Freight", is an amazing 10 minute groover that moves at a very slow pace (just like a freight train), and which features some very cool ad-lib talking by Paul Serrano – a pretty groovy touch that really adds a ...

Cadet, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded!

Excellent later album by the Dells that has them working with Don Davis on production, and singing in an excellent smooth soul setting that still lets their raspy soulful harmonies shine through, but which also gives them some excellent seventies grooves in the background.

Lou DonaldsonFried Buzzard ... CD
Cadet/Universal, 1965. Used ... $15.99
A live set recorded in 1965 – and more straight ahead soul jazz than Lou's later funk work on Blue Note, even though Leo Morris/Idris Muhammad is on drums. The album is a nice transitional session, though, with a good lounge jazz feel, and some nice long cuts like "Fried Buzzard", ... (Jazz) read more CD
