Jackson
2013 | CD | HBV-001 | PRICE: $11.00
'Thomas owes an obvious debt to the great Bobby Hutcherson. With a clear tone, strong chops and good ideas he is also reminiscent of modern vibes masters Bryan Carrott and Joe Locke. A fine debut from a fellow Oregonian.' ~ Rob Scheps   CD NOW IN STOCK.
PAOLO "APOLLO" NEGRI  releases
COBOL
2011 | CD | HBR014 | PRICE: $15.00
Paolo Apollo Negri's third chapter is a systematically-sealed wonderland of clutter-free style...is it Heaven? Materializing, electrifying, testifying the mass of our matter...it is Freedom!

THE LINK QUARTET  releases
4
2011 | CD | HBR013 | PRICE: $15.00
From vintage soul to their own unique brand of funk-jazz-rock, but squeezed into the raw, hyperactive, live-band genius of The Link Quartet. This is modern power-pop combined with R&B rock sensibility.

PAOLO "APOLLO" NEGRI  releases
The Great Anything
2010 | CD | HBR012 | PRICE: $15.00
The blistering raw power of Apollo and our collective soul lain to waste with the seventies fueled soundtrack of his heart and mind. The place where The Blues, rock and funk exploded into a glorious fireball of peace and unity…a place where love never sounded and tasted so good.

LOW FIDELITY JET-SET ORCHESTRA  releases
Searching For A Bit Of Popularity
2008 | CD | HBL010 | PRICE: $15.00
Their styles and rhythms are often like the best soundtrack instrumentals of the 60s and 70s -- and although the keyboards really help augment this feel, the percussion is equally great -- with lots of odd other bits besides drums, which really creates a nice sense of scene-changing between the tracks.

2007 | CD | HBL007 | PRICE: $7.00
5 top covers and 1 supa-funky original: Hotpie's Popcorn (The Poets of Rhythm) & Drive My Car (The Beatles) should turn more than a few heads, but it'll be Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" that ought to twist it right off your shoulders!
