Dave BrubeckJazz Impressions Of New York ... CD
Columbia, 1964. Used .... $4.99
New York's a mighty big place, but it's got a nicely intimate feel in this 60s set from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – one of the combo's overlooked gems from their years on Columbia! The music is all from the TV show Mr Broadway, but there's hardly a showtune feel to the set – and instead ... read more CD

A great early trio session from Ray Bryant – the kind of record that instantly shows why he caught such fire on the scene!

Red CallenderLowest – The Music Of Red Callender ... LP
Metro, Late 50s. Very Good- .... $8.99
Given that Red was one of the few tuba players in jazz, this album certainly was "The Lowest" – at least in terms of tone, as Red spends a lot of time rumbling around in bottom notes!

For years, this was the only album ever recorded by this obscure blind female pianist – until she was rediscovered and rerecorded a few years ago.
