JAZZ DISPENSARY

An unsung monster in the pantheon of exceptional soul-jazz outings from the Prestige catalog, "Fire Eater" finds Bryant grooving hard in a combo that featured Idris Muhammad on drums, Wilbert Longmire on guitar, and both Bill Mason and Leon Spencer Jr. on organ. Included in this stretched-out, funky set of four originals is the title track, “Fire Eater,” which was sampled for “Swing Set” by Jurassic 5 (2000) and appeared on the 1999 collaboration between DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, "Brainfreeze". While not as instantly recognizable by name as other greats of the tenor saxophone such as John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins, Bryant’s fiery and athletic approach on this set sets him apart from his peers as a force to be reckoned with. In the strident groove and funky underpinnings of "Fire Eater" is the blueprint for generations of future groovers and funkateers. Essential.

Long out of print and never reissued in the U.S. on vinyl since its original release in 1970, Afro-Disiac just might be the musical panacea you’ve been looking for. Features the smoldering, deep-pocket Purdie showcase, “Sweetheart.”

The 3 Pieces

Vibes Of Truth

    A true is a masterpiece of genre-bending groove, Vibes of Truth covers all the bases: from silky-smooth R&B, to politically conscious jazz-funk grooves, Vibes of Truth has it all. Long sought-after by collectors for the three club friendly tunes within its grooves, “Backed Up Against The Wall,” “Concrete Jungle,” and “I Need You Girl,” this lost classic from the Fantasy catalog represents the very best of the mid-70’s jazz-funk crossover sound and fits perfectly in a collection next to the likes of the Blackbyrds’ City Life or RAMP’s Come Into Knowledge.

    Funk Inc.

    Funk Inc.

      An impressive, addictive brew of soul and funky jazz, Funk Inc comes out of the gate swinging with the eight-minute organ groove-a-thon, “Kool Is Back” and never lets up. Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder, this unparalleled set in the soul-jazz canon recalls classic 1960s Blue Note sounds by the likes of Grant Green, Lou Donaldson, and Brother Jack McDuff, but with added grit, guts and groove that combines the deep-pocket, hypnotic moments of the Meters with unparalleled improvisational passages that recall the best of modern-day practitioners Galactic, Robert Walter, and the Greyboy Allstars. Unvarnished, raw, and unabashedly funky, Funk Inc is a relentlessly infectious record dripping with charm that remains worthy of exploration by anyone with passing interest in the primal power of blues, soul, jazz, or funk.
