One of the grooviest records ever – a sublime blend of African percussion, soulful orchestrations, and Dorothy Ashby's amazing electric harp!

Excellent Francoise Hardy album from 1968, with cool 60's arrangements that never get too overblown, and which provide a perfect showcase for her haunting vocals. The set includes some great material, like Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne", Serge Gainsbourg's "L'Anamour", Jobim's " ... read moreCD

The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A record that boasts a strange image of Arthur Lyman on the front – one that almost makes him look a bit thuggish, despite the affection promised in the title! (A bit of rough trade, perhaps?) The tunes themselves are a love-centered batch of exotic instrumentals – most with "love ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the coolest collections we've seen from the Numero Group in a long time – an assortment of obscure lounge singers and groups who played the Midwest scene in the glory days of the cocktail bar – not exotica acts or jazz combos, but instead the kind of warm and mellow artists you ...

A really goofy little record – one that has the great Spike Jones taking on the hi-fi generation – demonstrating the qualities of your system with a huge amount of sound effects mixed with music! LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has some light splitting on the bottom seam, but is nice overall.)
Well, we don't know about the "roots of acid jazz" part – but this is definitely a great batch of jazzy tracks! This 16 track sampler runs for over 70 minutes long, and it contains some of the best of Cal's work for Verve – a mix of jazzy, Latin, and groovy tunes, all with ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreCD
