Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... $1.99 13.99
An unusual set of work from the ever-changing Luke Vibert – a collaboration with MC BlueRum13 – whose lyrics provide a great mix with Luke's beats and instrumentation on the album!

Robi BotosOld Soul ... CD
Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... $3.99 14.99
Robi Botos is a keyboardist with a nice sense of space – one that makes for an inherent sense of groove in his music, even when things are mellow! Robi's not exactly a funk musician, but the record has plenty of currents of that mode – as his own keyboards are blended strongly with the ... (Jazz) read more CD

Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest jazz albums we've heard from drummer Mike Clark in years – a set that burns right from the start, and really lives up to the heavyweight lineup that includes Donald Harrison on alto, Rob Dixon on tenor, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Antonio Farao on piano, and Christian ...

A tight blend of hip hop, funk, and soul – served up with a lot of dark currents around the edges, and in a criss-crossing style that reminds us of some of the hipper experiments of this type from the New York downtown scene in years back!

Chance HaydenGet Somethin' ... CD
Ropeadope/Atlanta, 2018. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
Tight guitar from Chance Hayden – a player who definitely knows how to get a lot of color and tone out of his instrument, even while picking out a sharp note solo!

Singer Greg Hester pays tribute to the late Godfather – and does so in a nice way that moves things past the usual!

Ropeadope, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet grooves from Charlie Hunter – sounding better here than we've heard in years! The album's a real back-to-basics one for Charlie – a return to the sort of small combo grooving that first made him stand out from the pack back in the early 90s. The format is simple – Charlie's ... (Jazz) read more CD

The title definitely sums up the vibe of the record – because although Trevor Lawrence is the drummer at the core, he's also clearly a hell of a warm personality, too – with a very welcoming vibe that makes the album's array of musicians and guest artists feel right at home!

A hard-driving set from the great Eddie Palmieri – and a record that's maybe his strongest salsa effort in years, even though it's still filled with lots of the edgey, jazzy touches he's also brought to his best material in recent decades!

The genius of Eddie Palmieri never seems to dim at all as the years go on – and, if anything, the genius only seems to flower even more – finding new ways of expression that maybe even blow away some of Eddie's classic work from the 60s and 70s!

A nice little record from Jon Regen – a singer who works in a space that's somewhere in between jazz and more familiar singer/songwriter modes – in a legacy that might begin with Ben Sidran in the 70s, and come up to present work by an artist like Jamie Cullum!
