Deep Cut Grooves

Long-form albums chock full of transcendent jammy grooves. Assorted funk, soul, reggae and jazz subgenres.
1Baby Huey
The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend

Babby's first Deep Soul album
2Lee Moses
Time and Place

Worthy second step into entry-level deep soul
Peace and Love

Breathtaking, trance inducing nyabinghi from Ras Michael

Spookier than any horror movie score, the soundtrack to a carribean seance
5Terry Callier
What Color Is Love?

You've probably heard music this soulfully orchestrated and performed
6Ghetto Brothers
Power - Fuerza

The band's cultural impact on the zulu nation and the emergence of hip-hop overshadows their Latin funk jams, but if you haven't watched the documentary Rubble Kings, go do it now
724-Carat Black
Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth

Good deep cuts
Demon Fuzz

Gorgeous psychedelic soul/funk w an afrobeat tinge
9Harlem River Drive
Harlem River Drive

Eddie & Charlie Palmieri's first latin funk odyssey, with Bernard Purdie on drums
10Singers and Players
War of Words

Dark, drugged up, depressing dub
11Betty Davis
Betty Davis

Miles Davis' first wife introduced him to Jimi Hendrix, launching his interest in jazz-rock fusion and ultimately, the second half of his career. Then she dumped him, hired Larry Graham on bass, and made one of the most badass funk albums ever.
12Dr. John
In the Right Place

Zoo wee mama. Good funky nawlins R&B
13Milton Wright
Friends and Buddies

Originally released in two different editions - one mix with keyboards, one accidentally omitting them - Miami based Wright had some decent jams. Tbh tho the version of the album sans keyboards is arguably superior, with a slick acoustic groove you'd only really find with Lee Dorsey most of the time.
14Syl Johnson
Is It Because I'm Black

Title track is a timeless classic
15James Carr
You Got My Mind Messed Up

More deeper soul, but damn, what a fucking voice
16Ray Barretto

More latin jazz
17Albert King
I Wanna Get Funky

Funk album from the true blues king, BB can suck it, this is superior
Drum Talk

More nyabinghi, nice little drum grooves. Sample city
19Keith Hudson
Playing It Cool & Playing It Right

The strange middle ground between roots and dub. Like a desert trip.
20Ronald Shannon Jackson and the Decoding Society

Jazz to end your list to
