✨✧ Joe BeckBeck ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A great little Kudu set from guitarist Joe Beck – a player who's sounding a lot tighter here than some of his odd psychedelic experiments of the 60s – but still pretty darn great overall! The style is smooth, as you'd expect from Kudu, but Joe's still got plenty of edges in his guitar ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ron CarterAnything Goes ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1975. Used ... $14.99 18.99
Ron Carter gets sweet and funky on this 70s classic for Kudu Records – a set that's a fair bit different than some of Carter's acoustic trio sides of the decade, or some of his more high-concept work in recent years!

Hank CrawfordCajun Sunrise ... LP
Kudu, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Hank Crawford comes across here as much as a soul star as a jazz musician – as he sings on half the album's tracks, and delivers his trademark alto solos throughout! The album's got a similar vibe to some of Crawford's other CTI/Kudu material of the 70s – but the presence of vocals ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hank CrawfordDon't You Worry Bout A Thing ... LP
Kudu, 1974. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Sweet soulful jazz from reedman Hank Crawford – one of his killer Kudu sessions from the 70s – all of which really helped Hank redefine his sound!

✨✧ Hank CrawfordHank Crawford's Back ... LP
Kudu, 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Hank Crawford turns his back on the cover of this sweet little set from Kudu – but the groove itself is very upfront, strongly in the best mix of funky jazz and club the label had going down into the late 70s! Arrangements are by David Matthews, who keeps things lean and mean, even when the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kudu, 1971. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of Hank Crawford's first big records of the 70s – a really great set that helps him shake off some of his stock modes of the 60s and find a very different groove! A big part of the album is arranger Don Sebesky, who gives Hank a backdrop that's sophisticated and smooth, yet still pretty ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hank CrawfordTico Rico ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Hank Crawford's always been a great saxophonist – but he's also one that sometimes works even more strongly in a bigger group setting – as you'll hear on this 70s Kudu session with funky arranger David Matthews!

A sweet bit of electric funk, and one of Hank Crawford's greatest records from the 70s – thanks in large part to the great Bob James – who arranged and produced the record with a mighty soulful vibe – leaving Hank lots of room to solo on his own over the top!

Massive work from Johnny Hammond – stretching out here in some totally jamming grooves that really transform his style for the 70s!
