Groove Merchant, 1973. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
An excellent album of mellow soulful tracks by Lucky Thompson – with a sweet 70s groove that's quite different from most of his other recordings! The album's got a cool mellow feel – with Lucky veering much more towards a CTI-ish electric mode than the style he used on most of his ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Laser Light/Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Used ... $1.99
Wonderfully soulful grooves from the amazing Lucky Thompson!

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great 70s live work from Sarah Vaughan – material that easily stands alongside her best for the Pablo label at the same time, but which is far more obscure overall! The notes on the CD aren't much – and obviously help enforce the obscurity of the sessions – but we can say that ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the few funky albums ever cut as a leader by Larry Willis – a super-hip keyboard player who's best known for his work with Jackie McLean and Hugh Masekela, but who sounds even better as a leader! This album's a gem all the way through – with a free-thinking soulful sound that's ... (Jazz) read more CD

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
One of the best 70s albums by this funky organ player – quite different than his work for Blue Note, with a messier funkier edge that's very nice!

Groove Merchant/Connoisseur Collection (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Two excellent albums of funky organ work from the great Reuben Wilson! Both sides were recorded for Groove Merchant after Reuben left Blue Note – and they're actually a lot better than his work for Blue Note, as they have him opening up his groove a lot more, funking it up in a mode that's a ...

Groove Merchant/Solid (Japan), Early 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy Hammond from a time when the use of the organ in jazz was really changing up from the 60s – music that often had more of a funky current in the rhythms than some of the more soul and gospel-influenced styles of the decade before!
