From acid-jazz groovers and jazz-funk movers to spaced-out cosmic explorations and beyond, the 4LP-set Jazz Dispensary: Cosmic Stash opened the door to a heightened musical experience and features some of the most iconic and hard-to-find drum breaks, legendary samples, and a who's who of players and producers including: Bernard Purdie, Isaac Hayes, David Axelrod, the Lafayette Afro Rock Band, the Blackbyrds, Pharoah Sanders, and more.
Comprised of four distinct musical strains - Soul Diesel, Purple Funk, OG Kush, and Astral Travelin' – there is a trip for every mood. Each LP came in its own unique jacket, combining texture and visuals for a truly extrasensory experience. Featuring custom "prescription" labels, each record is designed to reflect the intended effects of the music. And now each of the four Jazz Dispensary: Cosmic Stash LPs are being offered individually. Just what the doctor ordered!
Guaranteed to give you an out of body experience, the recently discovered, highly psychoactive strain Astral Travelin' induces a higher consciousness and inspires a feeling of "oneness" with the universe. This disc is full of music to get lost in – alternatingly densely textural and loosely flowing groove. Leave the planet for a while – you might like what you find. You might recognize: Jack DeJohnette's "Epilog" was sampled in 2012 by LA's Gaslamp Killer on his album Meat Guilt (Brainfeeder).
