Dusty Groove and Real Gone Music

REAL GONE MUSIC ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH DUSTY GROOVE FOR REISSUE CAMPAIGN

First Releases Include Albums by Gene Harris, Bobbi Humphrey and Jeremy Steig

Los Angeles, California—Chicago's Dusty Groove record store stands on Ashland just south of Division in the city's Wicker Park area. But for music lovers around the globe who have either made the pilgrimage or bought from its online store, Dusty Groove stands squarely (or, rather, hiply) at the intersection of soul, funk, jazz, hip hop and world music as purveyors of the rarest, coolest and freshest sounds around. Now, Real Gone Music, the upstart, eclectic reissue label distributed by Sony via Razor & Tie, is proud to announce that it is teaming up with Dusty Groove to produce reissues drawn from the store's 16-year experience selling to its dedicated audience of collectors, deejays, devotees and fans; these titles are all time-tested yet impossible to find on compact disc. And the first releases in the joint venture—all out December 4—hit right on that soul-jazz-funk sweet spot.

 One of the hippest, funkiest, most soulful albums ever from flute man Jeremy Steig – and a rare session for Blue Note!  The feel here is a bit more stripped-down than other Steig albums of the time, with an especially strong focus on the bass of Eddie Gomez, who really gives the record a soulful sparkle.  Don Alias plays drums, and there’s also some sweet guitar from Sam Brown on the record too. Produced in 1970 by Sonny Lester—never before on CD, and rei
