Al Jarreau

We are sad to learn of the passing of Al Jarreau , a true legend of our music and a lovely man. Malcolm has written a fitting tribute which you can read here. Also just learned that Junie (of Ohio Players fame) has also just passed.

The titles include Jazz Funk Classics from Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey plus classic 50’s/60’s Jazz from John Coltrane, Herbie hancock, Horace Silver and many more. These are a snip at £5 each in the deal , and can be combined with titles from the other 5 sections to create as many 5 for £25 deals as you like.  See all the titles here

We are offering a great selection of Funky Town Grooves albums on CD at £13.99 each or for £25. many of these have been out of print for some years so please take the chance to grab these whilst they are available.
