A rare treat from Zoot Sims – an album of soprano sax material, recorded in striking contrast to his more familiar tenor!

A tightly swinging set of tracks dedicated to Al Jazzbo Collins – the famous jazz DJ of the 50s! Collins has little to do with the set – save for his image on the front cover – and the group's mostly a swing-based ensemble, grooving in a style that's similar to other mid 50s ... read more CD

The gentle genius of guitarist Johnny Smith – perfectly captured in this late nite trio session from the 50s!

Johnny SmithJohnny Smith Foursome ... LP
Roost, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
An overlooked 50s set from guitarist Johnny Smith – one that features a piano added into his trio, hence the "foursome" in the title! The pianist here is Bob Pancoast, who has a fluid, sometimes gentle touch on the keys – one that spins out Smith's guitar a bit more than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The second record from Johnny Smith's "Foursome" group – a great ensemble that features Bob Pancoast on piano, in addition to Smith's guitar, the bass of George Roumanis, and drums of Mousie Alexander!

Mellow laidback guitar jazz from Johnny Smith – working here in a quartet that includes Bob Pancost on piano, George Roumanis on bass, and Mousie Alexander on drums.

Roost, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the most obscure Johnny Smith albums for Roost – and one of the most striking, too!

Warwick, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obscure early Johnny Hammond album that, while not his best, is a nice rare addition to his catalog. The session was recorded for the short-lived Warwick jazz series, and it features Johnny playing in a very vibrato-heavy style similar to that used by some of the popular R&B organists of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A real gem from Lonnie Liston Smith's early years in the studio – and a record that's perhaps a bit more "cosmic" than it is "funk" – but that's why we like it so much! The session has Lonnie stretching out a bit more than usual – borrowing some of the ... read more CD

Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for ... read more CD

One of Lonnie Smith's rarest albums – and one of the most obscure records on the landmark Kudu label! The set is one of Smith's most far-reaching from the 70s – a bit in the mode of his earlier records for Blue Note, but with a slightly sweeter quality that shows the shift to Kudu ... read more CD

Funky funky funky!

Soaring, sweeping piano work from Paul Smith – a fluid player who was already known for his "liquid sounds" of the 50s, and who gets a great showcase here in a batch of bossa-inflected material! The style here is less straight bossa than you might think – and Smith really ... read more CD
