New Shirley Scott & Stanley TurrentineSoul Shoutin' ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A killer record by Shirley Scott and Stanley Turrentine – and quite possibly the best they ever did together!

Tom ScottRural Still Life ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
A fantastic early album fromTom Scott – cut when he was still a teenager, and a record that combines some sonic adventurousness with hard bop leaning sounds! Scott, especially on his early albums, is one heck of a reed player, and can get as funky as the best of them. This LP includes a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tom ScottTom Scott & The LA Express ... LP
Ode, 1974. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A real breakout moment for reedman Tom Scott – the first truly big album for the saxophonist who'd been blowing some great records on his own, and lending his horn to a host of classic jazz and soul sessions too! The groove is a lot sharper and tighter than earlier Scott albums, but never ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP ... $6.99
One of the most ambitious albums on CTI – a very large project in which Don Sebesky seems to work with just about everyone else who recorded for the label!

A groovy batch of Varitone sax tracks – featuring Al Serafini on the electric sax, with backings arranged by Tom Baker and Chuck Curtis in a mod late 60s kind of groove!

Davu Seru/Milo Fine/Paul Metzger/Didier PetitLight Keeps The Dark Company ... LP
Nero's Neptune, 2013. New Copy ... $13.99
A very freewheeling set of music here – so free that neither the cover nor the labels list any titles or instruments at all! From what we can tell, the live performance features piano from Milo Fine, drums from Davu Seru, banjo from Paul Metzger, and cello from Didier Petit – but there ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bud ShankBarefoot Adventure ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Amazing! Although this album's a soundtrack to some goofy California surfer film, it's actually a killer batch of off-kilter jazz tracks composed by Bud Shank, and with a sound that's unlike anything we've ever heard from him! The frontline of the session is Shank, Bob Cooper, and Carmell Jones ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bud ShankBrasamba! (80s pressing) ... LP
Pacific Jazz/Liberty, 1962. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of the greatest albums of Brazilian jazz that Bud Shank ever recorded – done with a style that's a lot more like some of the best bossa albums from Rio at the time!

Bud Shank & Bob CooperFlute 'N Oboe ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
Goofy cover, but like Shank's various reed projects, it works pretty well. Bob Cooper conducts a small string section, and joins Shank – who's playing flute– on Oboe.

Muse, 1976. Near Mint- ... $18.99
A fantastic album by Woody Shaw – spiritual, soulful, and filled with some nice modal grooving!

Woody ShawTime Is Right ... LP
Red (Italy), 1983. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The time is always right for Woody Shaw – as just about every album from the trumpeter's a gem, and this set's no exception to that rule!

New Woody Shaw & Anthony BraxtonIron Men ... LP
Muse, 1981. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Shaw and Braxton are an unlikely pair of fronliners – as one's got a soulful modal style, and the other's a colder modernist – but they work surprisingly well together on this album, which mixes players throughout the album, by adding in Muhal Richard Abrams, Cecil McBee, Arthur Blythe, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jack SheldonWarm World Of Jack Sheldon ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great one by Jack Sheldon – very different than some of his earlier jazz work, done in a hip LA easy style that has slight touches of later work on labels like CTI.

Archie SheppBird Fire – A Tribute To Charlie Parker ... LP
Impro (France), 1979. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The set's billed as a "tribute to Charlie Parker", but it's got a heck of a lot more to offer than that – as the album's one of the best of Archie Shepp's late 70s efforts, and has a gentle soulfulness that goes way beyond just duplicating Bird!

Pablo, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A rare treat from Zoot Sims – an album of soprano sax material, recorded in striking contrast to his more familiar tenor!

Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
Excellent meeting between 2 mighty talents who rarely recorded together!

Johnny Hammond SmithGetting Up ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good- ... $13.99
A real sleeper – but a great gem from Johnny Hammond! The album was cut during a time when Hammond was picking a page from the book of Groove Holmes – tightening up the tracks a bit, and going for a punchy sound that would hit big with the crossover and jukebox crowd. The tracks are ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hammond SmithSoul Talk ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good- ... $11.99
A sweetly funky set from Johnny Hammond Smith – a date done right at the start of the jazz funk era on Prestige – and one that marks a nicely heavy change in Johnny's sound!

An overlooked 50s set from guitarist Johnny Smith – one that features a piano added into his trio, hence the "foursome" in the title!

Warwick, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obscure early Johnny Hammond album that, while not his best, is a nice rare addition to his catalog.
