Prestige, 1969. Very Good- ... $4.99
A great little record – one of Houston's most successful for Prestige!

Houston PersonHouston Person '75 ... LP
Westbound, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Houston hits a funky groove for Westbound – not as hard, heavy, and Prestige-sounding as his work on the now-dead Eastbound label, but also not too bad either.

Houston PersonSweet Buns & Barbeque ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of those Prestige records sessions from the early 70's that has more of an electric keyboard groove than a hard organ one, but still a nice set of sweetly funky tracks from Houston Person and his funky tenor.

If you can believe it, the 10th album in Oscar's "composers" series for Clef Records – done in a songbook mode that would set the tone for Verve in years to come.

Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
We couldn't think of a better title for this one – as Oscar's in perfect form, crafting lightly shaded tones on the keys – and working with the guitar/bass drumless trio format that made his work so fluid in the 50s.

Clef, 1952/1954. Good+ ... $14.99
A great early example of the genius of mixing guitar with the piano of Oscar Peterson – a move that might have been inspired by the success of Ahmad Jamal, but which works equally well for Peterson's sound on the keys!

Pettiford's second album of big band tracks for ABC during the 50s – a more open-ended set than the previous one, with modernist touches that really make the set sparkle nicely.

Although Sonny Phillips was one of the funky organ players to record for Prestige during the classic jazz funk years, by the time of this recording, he'd emerged as a more spiritual talent, with a looser, freer approach, and a much more open-ended vibe.

There's a bit more focus here than before – tunes that are somewhat shorter, and really hone in on the best elements in the group's sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Quartetto Di LuccaQuartetto (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A bracingly fresh combination of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – and a real standout set of modern jazz from the Italian postwar years!

Paul QuinichetteKid From Denver ... LP
Dawn, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
Brilliant work from the "Vice Pres" – tenorist Paul Quinichette, stepping out here in one the best of of his all-too-few sessions as a leader! Paul's tone is amazing throughout – very much on a par with that of Ben Webster or Coleman Hawkins, and proof that his admission to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove – nice and clean. Cover has a bit of tape on two seams, but is nice overall.)

Paul QuinichetteMoods ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Perhaps the best-known (and arguably the best) record by Paul Quinchette, and an album that brings his rich tenor solo style into contact with a very tight, very swinging batch of arrangments by a young Quincy Jones. Quincy's got an all-star batch of players backing up Q, including Sam Most, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing!)

Sun RaAngels & Demons At Play ... LP
Saturn, Mid 50s/1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer early session from Sun Ra! Ra plays organ and electric piano, and the band includes Gilmore, Pat Patrick, Marshall Allen, Ronnie Boykins, Art Hoyle, Phil Cohran, and Julian Priester.

Saturn, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Mindblowing music from Sun Ra & The Arkestra – sounds recorded during the same marathon session that gave the world the records Other Planes Of There, When Sun Comes Out, and When Angels Speak Of Love – but titles that are much more obscure overall!

Sun RaCosmic Tones For Mental Therapy ... LP
Saturn, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the greatest Saturn albums! This one has Ra playing clavioline and echoey "cosmic side drums" with a great spacey sound that was probably arrived at through some primitive reverb and echo techniques! The overall effect is everything you'd imagined about Sun Ra – a mixture ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Sun RaCosmos ... LP
Inner City, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the best-remembered Sun Ra albums from the 70s – a really cool little session that features Ra playing the unusual "rocksichord" all the way through! The instrument's a very weird one – kind of like a messed-up electric piano, with lots of cool broken notes and a weird ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City, 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
One of Sun Ra's best non-Saturn live sets of the 70s – a nice little record that shows the group mixing it up with equal parts avant garde and straight ahead jazz, all handled in that ever-growing large group style that made them a real force to be reckoned with in a concert setting!

Sun RaMy Brother The Wind ... LP
Saturn, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Crazy stuff – one of the wilder albums from Sun Ra, and a record that has him playing on "two moog synthesizers" – which both sound as if they're going at the same time! The rest of the group is quite small – with only John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Danny Davis ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaNight Of The Purple Moon ... LP
Saturn, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic spooky bit of wild keyboard jazz from Ra! Night Of The Purple Moon was recorded in 1972 and Ra playing two different moogs, and his classic rocksichord – likely put to its most mind alteringly great use on this LP! John Gilmore, surprisingly enough, plays percussion, except on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Sun RaNubians Of Plutonia ... LP
Saturn, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent Sun Ra session from 1959! Ra and the Arkestra are playing in a fine mix of straight jazz and spacey styles, with Ra on electric piano throughout the entire set.

Sun RaStrange Celestial Road ... LP
Celestial, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A very nice session that actually has a bit of a soul jazz touch – with elements that are similar to Ra's Lanquidity set, a much sought-after spacey fusion classic!

Sun Ra's first album as a leader – originally issued on the Transition label, but presented here in its better-known incarnation by Delmark Records!

The first album on Saturn!
