Going deep Wednesday night at the Mt. Airy Groove.  The complete works of The Stark Reality just dropped on NowAgain!  Get ready to dig into some fuzzy, funky Hoagy Carmichael tunes...originally re-imagined for a public access kids show!  Plus, a new one from Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators (Helsinki, please stand up!), a pair of tracks from the excellent Marcos Valle reissue series on Light in the Attic, and more previously unreleased music from Barney Wilen's killer Moshi sessions!

Back at it Wednesday night.  Barney Wilen's Moshi remains one of the most elusive LPs from the European scene.  In fact, I've never seen a copy let alone own one!  However, Germany's Sonorama Records just released a mess of unreleased tracks from the French tenorman's personal archives, appropriately named Moshi Too, so let's check out music from the legendary road trip.  Plus, more spirtual jazz from that great new album from Lance Ferguson's Menagerie, Numero's reissue of classic Syl Johnson and some Estonian jazzfunk from Jaan Kuman.

Keyboard heavy grooves goin' down at the Junction Wednesday night.  The Greg Foat Group returns with another great analogue recording and it's just as great as last year's debut!  Plus, we learned about Dave Brubeck's passing just before leaving for last week's show, so let's pay proper tribute to a true legend in jazz.  And the usual vinyl-only madness will ensue, including scores from the Philadelphia Record Riot...see you then!

Stop by the Junction Wednesday night for 100% vinyl grooves.  Last week featured some great debuts, but still some more new ones to bring your way.  The legendary Art Pepper's wife Laurie just teamed up with Omnivore Records to release a series of live quartet sides from the early '80s, Jazzman digs deeper (do they every stop???) to bring us hard luck soul from the Ohio Penitentiary's 511 Jazz Ensemble and Mayer Hawthorne's Record Store Day 10 inch is a great live session from KCRW's Morning Goes Eclectic.  And sadly, Dave Brubeck died today, so we'll pay tribute.   Come on in!
