A wickedly soulful session from bassist Leroy Vinnegar – one that carries the same "walker" theme used in the titles of his Contemporary albums, but one that comes across with an even groovier feel overall!

Contemporary, 1963. Very Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
Although it's easy to get mixed up with all the Leroy Vinnegar albums that have "walk" in the title, this one's a great soul jazz session from the early 60s – one that nicely draws upon an LA scene that includes Roy Ayers, Freddie Hill, Teddy Edwards, Mike Melvoin, and Ron Jefferson ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hard talk, and lots of heavy sounds from the great Mal Waldron – heard here in a set that may well be one of his greatest moments of the 70s!

George WallingtonGeorge Wallington With Strings ... LP
Norgran, Early 50s. Very Good .... $48.99
One of the rarest albums ever from George Wallington – and that's saying a lot, given the obscurity of some of his sessions! This unusual set has George mostly working in a drum-less group with cool use of strings – just a bit of violin, viola, and cello – but in ways that color ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Norgran pressing. Vinyl is nice and clean, with some light marks – but has a very light, subtle warp. Played fine for us, and the whole thing is nice and heavy – but the price reflects that warp. Cover has light wear and a small sticker.)

A long-overdue reissue – both of Cedar Walton's fusion albums for Columbia – back to back on a single CD! Animation is one of Cedar Walton's mid 70s funky jazz efforts – acoustic keys often traded for electric piano, grooving with a funky bigger band, almost in a Ramsey Lewis ... read more CD

Warmly expressive work from trumpeter Kenny Wheeler – a set that's got the same depth of tone as his work for other labels, but which has a bit of a different feel as well. The record has maybe a bit more bite – not necessarily on Wheeler's trumpet or flugelhorn, the latter of which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Very heavy vinyl – with bonus CD too!)

Impulse, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold .... $6.99
Funky and soulful spiritual work from Michael White, and a better set of grooves than you'll find on most of his other records. The set's got a good electric vibe, with a production style that differs from most other Impulse recordings, and which sounds more like it belongs on a Roy Ayers ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe WilderPretty Sound ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good .... $9.99
Don't be too put off by the title – which might make you think that the album's a bunch of flowery instrumentals – because it's actually a pretty strong set of tunes from trumpeter Joe Wilder, recorded with a bit of polish, to be sure, but in a way that lets him take the lead, solo-wise. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Genius early work from a young Barney Wilen – an album issued in the US during a brief time when the French tenor star was turning a lot of heads on the American scene!

Amazing music from the legendary Barney Wilen – previously unreleased African recordings, done around the same time as his classic Moshi album!

Classic hard-hitting organ jazz session by this great Chicago keyboard player, better known to the world for his two Blue Note LPs, but playing here in a style that's much more creative, and much more open-ended than on those LPs.

Atlantic (Japan), 1957. New Copy .... $10.99
An odd pairing of musicians – but a classic album of piano jazz from the 50s, and some of the more obscure sides by both players! Barbara Carroll works here in a really lovely way that retains the fluidity of her 50s work on RCA, but which also has a slightly rougher edge – a mode that' ... read more CD

A key record in the evolution of Tony Williams as a drummer – and kind of a powerful summation of all the changes he'd made in the 70s – before a return to straighter jazz in the next decade! Williams' drumming here is incredibly fierce at points – almost at a Billy Cobham level ... read more CD

A really sparkling session from trumpeter Stu Williamson – one of a few great records he cut for the Bethlehem label in the 50s, and a set that's one of the cookingest from the company at the time! Stu's trumpet lines are already mighty nice – tight, and often a bit bolder than others ... read more CD
