Saxophonist Gary Bartz joins the duo of Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad – bringing a warm sense of soul to their soulful backings – which range from funky to spacey, and do a nice job of capturing the mid 70s feel of Gary on record!

Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A great new showcase for the legendary keyboard work of Doug Carn – and a set that's very different both from his famous albums for the Black Jazz label, and some of his organ jazz records in more recent years too!

✨✧ Zeshan BVetted ... CD
Minty Fresh, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99

Night Time Stories/Beat (Japan), 2020. New Copy ... $22.99
A great live set from this very funky trio – recorded in our home city of Chicago, but with an appeal that's pretty darn universal!

Jazzman (UK), 2009. Used ... $8.99
An amazing deep funk combo from Japan – one that almost rivals Osaka Monaurail for classic-styled grooves! These guys have a sharpness that reminds us of the late 60s James Brown Band at their best, touched with a bit of JBs instrumental riffing – all produced with just the right ... read more CD

✨✧ New Jersey KingsStratosphere Breakdown (UK pressing) ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 1995. Used ... $6.99
Hard hitting funky 45 material – supposedly recorded by a "lost" funk group from the 70s, but actually the James Taylor Quartet playing under a different name! That little bit of name trickery doesn't stop the album from being a nice batch of funky jazz tracks, though – with ... read more CD
