Stairsteps (5 Stairsteps)

2nd Resurrection (gold vinyl pressing)
Dark Horse/Warner, 1976. (reissue)
A great later moment from the Five Stairsteps – served up by a mature version of the group, who are now all adults at the time of recording – and come together in a great new groove! The album's a modern soul treasure through and through – upbeat and a bit funky at times, but ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Blue Note, 1966. (reissue)
One of the greatest Bobby Hutcherson albums for Blue Note – a classic session recorded in quartet form, with a style that seems to set a whole new standard for the vibes in modern jazz! The group here is sublime – Herbie Hancock on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Shabaka (Shabaka Hutchings)

Perceive Its Beauty – Acknowledge Its Grace
Impulse, 2024.
A very different album than you might expect from London reedman Shabaka Hutchings – a set that's got a very peaceful, meditative vibe a times – and one that has Shabaka looking inside for righteous inspiration, then spinning things out in a beautiful way! Hutchings put aside his more ... CD (Jazz CD)
A&M/Future Days, 1970. (reissue)
One of our favorite-ever keyboard albums – a rare lost session from pianist Pete Jolly – one of his only electric dates, and a completely improvised set of grooves! Pete plays electric piano, organ, and even a bit of musette – jamming in the studio with help from Chuck Berghofer ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Blue Note (Japan), 1968.
A wonderful Herbie Hancock session from the 60s – a Blue Note album that's sometimes overlooked, but which really shows Herbie taking off – as he adds a nice dose of lyricism into his usual soul jazz approach from the 60s! The sound's a bit farther-reaching than on some of Hancock's ... CD (Jazz CD)
Trunk (UK), 1968.
Two very groovy soundtracks from UK great Basil Kirchin – an artist who's sometimes known for darker, moodier music – but who serves up some great 60s work here! The first half of hte set features tunes from the spy film Assignment K – which Kirchin scores with styles that borrow ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks LP)

Bill Frisell

Orchestras
Blue Note, 2024.
A stunning setting for the guitar of Bill Frisell – and an album that's maybe even more beautiful than we might have expected! The record features Bill's core trio – with Rudy Royston on drums and Thomas Morgan on bass – but the real genius of the set may well come from the great ... CD (Jazz CD)

McCoy Mrubata & Siyabulela

Lullaby For Khayoyo
Ropeadope, 2024.
A warmly crafted album from South African saxophonist McCoy Mrubata – not one that's sleepy, as the lullaby in the title might imply – but just nicely relaxed and mellow, in a way that has the reedman crafting some moody colors on tenor – in a lineup that features lots of great ... CD (Jazz CD)

Jamale Davis

Run With The Hunted
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2024.
With a record like this, it's clear that bassist Jamale Davis is a player to watch – as he's got a way of really bringing something new to the table, and presenting us with a very fresh conception of jazz! Way back through a legacy that includes albums by Ron Carter, Richard Davis, and Oscar ... CD (Jazz CD)

Ed Bogas/Sonny Stitt/Merl Saunders

Black Girl – Original Soundtrack
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1972.
CD...$8.99 14.99
A killer little soundtrack – and one that's quite different than the usual blacksploitation set, but still pretty funky overall! The film Black Girl was a surprisingly sensitive movie directed by Ossie Davis in the early 70s – not as much about action as it was about the everyday life, ... CD (Soul CD)

Tono Y Sus Sicodelico

Mister Boogaloo
Alfa/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1968. (reissue)
A boogaloo album, but one that's a lot trippier than most – and definitely worthy of the psychedelic reference in the group's name! As with so much of the best work from the Venezuelan scene of the late 60s, the music here draws on references from up north, but really abstracts the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin LP)
ECM (Germany), 1970. Gatefold (reissue)
A legendary session from the early years of ECM – one of those records that really helped set the tone of the label for years to come! The album's definitely on the more avant side of the spectrum, and is a great reminder of how much ECM contributed to European free jazz at the start – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Azimuth (John Taylor/Norma Winstone/Kenny Wheeler)

Azimuth
ECM (Germany), 1977. Gatefold (reissue)
The stunning debut of this ultra-hip trio – not to be confused with the similarly-named Brazilian group Azymuth, but instead a British combo who really helped find new ways of expression in an ECM setting! All three artists here had already made waves on their scene in the years before ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Dusty Groove Hoodie

Dot Dash – Black (MED)
Dusty Groove Gear,
A modernist design that hearkens back to our favorite jazz albums of the 50s – served up as a testament to our best-selling style of music year after year! Yet even if you're not a jazz listener, you can still dig the sleek look of the image – which is printed here on an even better ... Clothing (Clothing)

Josh Johnson

Unusual Object
Northern Spy, 2024.
A solo record, but one that's got the sound of more things at once than you might expect – as saxophonist Josh Johnson has this great way of processing the sound from his horns, then layering them with samples and other elements too – but all in a way that's never gimmicky, and really ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Akenaton (Egypt), Late 1950s/1960s/1970s/Early 1980s.
A mad mix of sounds from the glory days of Indian cinema – served up in a package that offers up a much broader blend of styles than other Bollywood collections – as it features numbers from the late 50s all the way through the early 80s! Some of the tracks here have a rockish vibe ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)

Dusty Groove Hoodie

Record Guy – Storm Blue (MED)
Dusty Groove Gear,
An image that conjures up the delight we experience every time we drop a needle on a record – kicking back and letting our mind drift away to the music! And sure, maybe we're not as likely to drop the cover on the floor as this guy – we are record collectors after all – but we ... Clothing (Clothing)

Oren Ambarchi/Johan Berthling/Andreas Werliin

Ghosted 2
Drag City, 2024.
A beautiful album from this very hip trio – and like the first, a set that's got a vibe that's very different than most other work of its nature! Sure, it's a guitar trio album – Oren Ambarchi on guitar, Johan Berthling on bass, and Andreas Werliin on drums – but the way the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Tony Palkovic

Born With A Desire
Numero, Early 1980s.
Very cool grooves from Tony Palkovic – an artist who's kind of a one man soul band in himself – playing keyboards and guitar over drum machine riffs – on these tracks that are laidback, soulful, and instrumental – almost serving up a smoother take on the territory of 80s ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Roy Brooks & The Artistic Truth

Black Survival – The Sahel Concert At Town Hall
Im-Hotep/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. Gatefold (reissue)
Amazing sounds from the righteous Roy Brooks – a drummer who worked strongly in the soul jazz mainstream of the 60s, then stepped out into even headier territory here in the 70s! The album's a spiritual masterpiece all the way through – an album on par with early 70s Impulse sides from ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
