Ron CarterAnything Goes ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1975. Used ... $24.99
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! The approach here is free and flowing – larger arrangements penned by ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Hank CrawfordCajun Sunrise ... LP
Kudu, 1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 CrawfordI Hear A Symphony ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Not really a symphony, but a great album that features the soulful alto sax of Hank Crawford blowing over some rich larger backings from David Matthews – all with a sweetly funky Kudu sound! The style's a bit more polished than some of the other Kudu sessions of the time – almost a bit ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hank CrawfordTico Rico ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Near Mint- ... 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 pair of CTI/Kudu classics from Hank Crawford – back to back on a single CD!

Johnny HammondWild Horses Rock Steady ... LP
Kudu, 1971. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Excellent Kudu work from one of the greatest organists of the 70s – a player who really stretched out and opened up his groove during the decade!

Idris MuhammadPower Of Soul ... CD
Kudu/CTI, 1974. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
An incredible record from funky drummer Idris Muhammad! Idris is probably known for his funky break work on Blue Note and Prestige records sessions of the late 60s and early 70s – but by the time of this 1974 album, he was really expanding his style, hitting a laidback groove that went way ...

✨✧ Idris MuhammadTurn This Mutha Out ... LP
Kudu/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great late 70s chapter in the career of funky drummer Idris Muhammad – moving into very different territory here than his early soul jazz with Lou Donaldson, and even his earliest solo material too! David Matthews arranged the tracks, and he's given them a slick but soulful sound, with lots ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kudu/King (Japan), 1974. Used ... $11.99
Not a live album – as you might think from the title – but a tight batch of tunes that shows the full funk and soul talents of the legendary Esther Phillips!

Kudu, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Grover Washington's first albums as a leader – cut hot on the heels of some great work as a sideman, including some key funky dates with Charles Earland on Prestige!

An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever!
