Jim PepperPepper's Pow Wow ... LP
Embryo, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A strangely beautiful little record – the standout career effort from tenorist Jim Pepper – a Native American player who draws heavily here on his heritage! Although Pepper plays sax on most numbers, he also sings a fair bit too – in kind of a raspy style that alternates from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bill PerkinsConfluence ... LP
Interplay, 1978. Sealed ... $6.99
Surprising 70s work from tenorist Bill Perkins – a set with a very different groove than his better-known sides from the 50s, with lots of sharp angles, modern touches, and a wonderfully rich sound overall!

Charlie Persip & The Jazz StatesmenRight Down Front (aka Charlie Persip & The Jazz Statesmen) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1960. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A killer hardbop session – and a long lost classic! This stunning set is one of the best, and hardest sessions ever cut for the Bethlehem label – and it's got a raw pounding groove that sounds a lot more like some of the classic soul-tinged hardbop coming out on Prestige during the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Houston PersonGet Outa My Way! ... LP
Westbound, 1975. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Houston's going for a fuller sound on this one – stepping off the style of some of his later Prestige albums, and working in a mode that's supported by arrangements from Jimmy Roach – mostly in a style that's heavy on the 70s soul backings, with some slight touches of funky jazz. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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. The overall sound is more produced, and there's some cuts that have a smoother tenor sound than you're used to with Houston. Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Houston PersonSuspicions ... LP
Muse, 1980. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Mellow grooving work from Houston – recorded with a lineup that recalls the old days of the Prestige jazz funk years (Sonny Philips, Melvin Sparks, Idris Muhammad, Bad Bascomb, Virgil Jones, and others), but done with a sound that's pretty polish, and often arranged by Horace Ott to have a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Houston PersonTruth! ... LP
Prestige, 1970. Very Good- ... $5.99
One of Houston Person's first forays into the jazz funk sound that other Prestige Records players were picking up at the time – a sweet little set with some nicely extended tunes!

Oscar PetersonGreat Connection ... LP
MPS, 1974. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Oscar's great connection here is with the rhythm team of Louis Hayes on drums and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass – both of whom bring in a nice degree of subtlety to the set, and make it one of Peterson's most gently-grooving albums for MPS! There's a warm, round quality to most of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Oscar Peterson's biggest records ever – one of those albums we turn up time and time again when digging through classic jazz collections – and for good reason too, given the lasting power of the set!

Oscar PetersonOscar Peterson Plays Count Basie ... LP
Verve, 1955. Very Good- ... $9.99
Count Basie taken down a few notches – not in quality, but in terms of the size of the group – as Oscar really opens up some of the Count's standards in a whole new way, by playing them with a stripped-down quartet that features Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Clef, Early 50s. Good+ ... $19.99
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. As you'd guess from the title, the tunes are all Jimmy McHugh compositions – played by Oscar's trio that includes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Oscar PetersonOscar Peterson Plays Pretty (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, 1952. Very Good ... $19.99
Oscar Peterson plays pretty – but doesn't he always?

Oscar PetersonPastel Moods ... LP
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. The album's as seductive as its title and beautiful cover, and Oscar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MPS, 1968. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The first of a series of great "private" recordings that Oscar Peterson did for the MPS label in the late 60s – sessions done at the home of label owner Hans Georg Brunner Schwer, in a laidback and easygoing style that's different than some of his American work of the time! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PetersonRecital By Oscar Peterson ... LP
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! The tracks here feature either Herb Ellis or Irving Ashby on guitar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1962. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The West Side Story score – but handled here by the great Oscar Peterson Trio – in ways that really push the tunes past their Broadway roots!

Limelight, 1965. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Oscar Peterson pays tribute to the late Nat King Cole – not only on piano, but also with a bit of vocals as well!

Verve, 1961. Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Milt Jackson joins the Oscar Peterson Trio – helping the group to hit some great new space with his magical work on vibes!

Oscar PettifordNew Oscar Pettiford Sextet ... LP
Debut/OJC, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Although bassist Oscar Pettiford left a huge influence on jazz before his untimely death, there's not actually that many fantastic records in which he's featured as a leader. Fortunately, this is one of the few, and it's a sparkling set of modernist inflected bop tunes played by a group that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PettifordOscar Pettiford Orchestra In Hi Fi Volume 2 ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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. Part of these are due to Gigi Gryce, who plays alto on the record, and probably had a bit of a hand in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny PhillipsMy Black Flower ... LP
Muse, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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.

Willie PickensIt's About Time! ... LP
Southport, 1987. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The title's a reference to the fact that the album's a long-overdue debut as a leader for pianist Willie Pickens – a player who was important in the Chicago scene for years, but had never made it into the studio until the late 80s. The set's an odd one – in that it features a fair ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy PonderMean Streets – No Bridges ... LP
Muse, 1987. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A great little record by Jimmy Ponder – recorded late in the 80s, but with some nice touches that give the record more of an early 70s jazz funk groove – almost a style that hits the Prestige sound at times!

Jean Luc PontyIndividual Choice ... LP
Atlantic, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A nicely spare little set from Jean Luc Ponty – one that has him working on both keyboards and violin, sometimes with little else for accompaniment!

The last album ever recorded by funky drummer Roy Porter – and a really unique set that seeks to combine his older grooves from the 70s with contemporary elements from the 90s hip hp scene!

A nice, nice compilation of sides cut by Powell for Norman Granz, from 1949 to 1951.

Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Bud plays live at Birdland with Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones. The album's got almost a soul jazz feel in parts, perhaps due to the backing by Jones and Jones. Powell hits lots of soulful changes while running around in firey solos, and Jones' bass slams behind him in round warm lines. Tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mellow jazz guitar stylings on Vanguard, with a large group backing up Prince, and giving a sort of uptempo funky feel to some of the material, though really it's mostly swing based.

A compelling "chamber opera" of sorts by Michel Puig – performed by a group of instrumentalists and vocalists led by Rene Leibowitz.
