Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A percussion-heavy batch of tracks that has Pete Rugolo starting from a mode explored heavily in the hi-fi years, but taking the genre into much jazzier territory!

Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Reeds In Hi Fi ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $2.99
One of Pete Rugolo's greatest albums – and some of his most groundbreaking work away from Stan Kenton!

Contemporary, 1955. Very Good- ... $14.99
Another standout set from Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars – the kind of group who should have been a gimmicky way to promote his nightclub, but who actually managed to cut some of the best LA records of the time! The lineup here features Rumsey on bass, Bud Shank on alto, Bob Cooper on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1953. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the earliest sets issued under the name of the Lighthouse All-Stars – that hip assemblage of west coast players headed by bassist Howard Rumsey – hardly a household name on his own, but well-remembered for all the great work done at this famous club!

Dynia World/Sonorama (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99

Patrice RushenBefore The Dawn ... LP
Prestige, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Patrice Rushen's second album – and a very sweet batch of keyboard funk! The record has Patrice working in a groove that's almost like that of Herbie Hancock at the time – using lots of electric piano, clavinet, and synth to craft some mighty fine jazz funk grooves. The group's a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Patrice RushenPrelusion ... LP
Prestige, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great set from Patrice Rushen – very different than her later R&B work from the 80s!

Patrice RushenShout It Out ... LP
Prestige, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
A pivotal record for Patrice Rushen – a set that has her really tightening things up from her previous Prestige albums – heading much more towards the focused soul-drenched grooves of her Elektra Records years!

Long before he became the empresario behind the legendary Black Jazz label in the 70s, Gene cut this album of mellow soul jazz piano tracks, live at Memory Lane Supper Club in LA.

Akira Sakata is a player who's never been known to hold back – but he sounds especially powerful here in the company of Paal Nilssen Love on drums and Johan Berthling on bass – two younger players who seem to inspire Sakata to a sort of frenzied height that we haven't heard this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
