Justo AlmarioInterlude ... LP
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The greatest album ever from reedman Justo Almario – and one of the most obscure sets to ever come out on the Uno Melodic label of Roy Ayers!

Lovely work from singer Brigette – recorded with a sound that's warm, sunny, and soulful – and helped out by some nice jazzy touches from guitarists Dori Caymmi and Heito Pereira, and flautist Hubert Laws!

Two great tracks from Dee Edwards – from a time when the Detroit singer was really getting a chance to shine!

EmotionsSunbeam ... CD
Columbia/Expansion (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little album from The Emotions – largely because it sounds a lot like prime mid 70s Earth Wind & Fire, with female vocals added over the top – ultimately, pulling away with a soulful charm all its own!

Expansion (UK), 1985. New Copy ... $9.99
A rare lost modern soul gem, which we too rarely come across! Recorded in 1985 for the Philly World label as Gardner's debut LP, the story as we understand it is that this record never really hit the shelves – for some reason it was pulled at the last minute by the label.

Sweet funky jazz from the 70s!

Two of the best cuts ever from this underground club act of the 70s – back to back on a 12" single!

A really great underground groover from the 70s – an album that hardly got any circulation at the time, but which has gone onto become the stuff of legend over the years!

One of our favorite albums ever – and every track is a masterpiece! The album was originally cut for the tiny Chiaroscuro label in 1977 – and it's got a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – soaring, soulful, jazzy, and righteous – wrapped up in a blend that's ... (Jazz) read more CD

Incredible soul jazz from the great Pharoah Sanders – two great numbers from his post-Impulse Records years!
