CTI, 1973. Used Gatefold ... $8.99
One of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a way that nicely steps off of Airto's first few American releases, and warms the groove up with a nice dose of ...

Chisa/Verve, 1971. Used ... $9.99
Great work from one of the funkiest periods in the career of the Jazz Crusaders – that point when they first dropped the "jazz" from their name, and started moving into groovier territory! The set's a bit electric, but never as much so as their later, bigger hits – just ... read more CD

Mindblowing – and a landmark recording that crosses all boundaries in the Chicago music scene of the late 60s!

A great little record that came out a few years ago and never got the success it deserved.

Quite possibly Sonny Red's best non-Blue Note session – and a real winner with a group that includes Grant Green on guitar, and either Barry Harris or Cedar Walton on piano.
