Lean, righteous blowing from the legendary Frank Foster – one of a handful of extremely hip sessions he cut in the 60s under his own name! The album's the only record Foster ever did for Blue Note – and we dare say it's even better than his previous 60s work on Prestige and Impulse ... read more CD

Wicked late 70s work from Ronnie Foster – a rare Columbia outing that's arguably better than his earlier sides for Blue Note!

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
A very interesting date as a leader from tenorist Bud Freeman – partly because it's a rare date for the Bethlehem label, and partly because it's got Freeman stretching out in a different vibe than usual!

One of a few albums from the late 80s that features underground saxophonist Chico Freeman playing in the company of his father, Chicago tenor giant Von Freeman.

Prestige, Late 50s. New Copy .... $4.99 11.98
A nice, cooking bop side, led by Red Garland and featuring 'Trane at his late 50s best, when he was moving between playing with the top East coast talents of the day, and playing with a ferocity that betrayed the direction he'd later take when he got really out.

A gem of a session from Stan Getz – recorded in 1975, but unissued until the mid 80s!
