Cannonball AdderleySoul Zodiac ... LP
Capitol, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball AdderleyThings Are Getting Better ... LP
Riverside/OJC, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An album that definitely lives up to its title – given the great change and evolution in the style of Cannonball Adderley's music – definitely pointed towards the soul jazz fame to come in the 60s! The group here has Adderley's alto in the company of some all-stars who may not be his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

AirtoFree ... LP
CTI, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Airto's unique Brazilian fusion style meets the electric funky genius of CTI – and the result is a killer album of long tracks with a far-reaching jazzy groove!

Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy ... $24.99
A beautifully bold session from trombonist Mats Aleklint – a player we don't know well at all, but who really steps out on this set as a leader for Moserobie Records!

One of the most hard-hitting albums ever cut by pianist Georges Arvanitas – an early effort that's all soul jazz all the way through!

David AxelrodAuction ... LP
Decca, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
One of David Axelrod's oddest records, but still a darn great one!

The first album ever cut by George Benson as a leader – a cooker of a soul jazz set, recorded back when George was the guitarist in Jack McDuff's classic 60s quartet!

Prestige (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An amazing album that has Art Blakey completely reinventing himself for the 70s! Blakey shifts from straight hardbop to kind of a modal soul jazz groove, touched with some of the electric playing of the younger jazz generation, but not enough to qualify as fusion or funk. Instead, he's working ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
