Sonny RollinsSonny's Time ... LP
Jazzland, Late 50s/1962. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Nice batch of tracks that had been recorded earlier in Rollins career (during the late 50s), but which were unearthed in 1962 in an effort to cash in on Rollins' return to jazz playing.

RCA, 1962. Very Good ... $16.99
A very unique album from Sonny Rollins – one that features him blowing tenor over some Latin-based rhythms that have a tight uptempo feel.

Prestige, 1955. Used ... $5.99
If worktime was like this for us, you'd catch us showing up on the job early every day – but sadly, nothing at our office can match the brilliance of early Sonny Rollins here – a sharp-edged genius that perfectly illustrates why he was one of the greatest players on his horn for many ... read more CD

Wallace RoneyNo Room For Argument ... CD
Stretch, 2000. Used ... $4.99
Darkly expressive work from Wallace Roney – one of those key albums that seems to push his original Muse Records sound even further with a range of more expansive elements! Roney's still got that brooding post-Miles sound in his horn – but here, it's used in some more complicated ... read more CD

The Delmark debut as a leader from drummer Frank Rosaly – and a very unique little record!

Reprise/Collectables, 1961. Used ... $6.99
One of the rarest albums by Frank Rosolino – and a surprisingly great vocal set as well! The tunes are short, but Frank manages to both sing and turn in his usual trombone solo work here – and while the latter is great, we especially love the former! Frank's vocals have a raspy, ... read more CD

Posi tone, 2009. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
A tribute to Ray Charles, but played by a hard-swinging, and mighty soulful ensemble – one that features Eric Alexander on tenor and Mike LeDonne on Hammond B-3! Both players really give the album a nice bite – and hearing Alexander next to LeDonnne's organ, we're reminded of Eric's ... read more CD

Soulful bossa from Blue Note – and a real lost treasure!

A killer – and one of the greatest records ever cut on Bethlehem! Charlie Rouse and Paul Quinichette go head to head in a hard-blown session that's very different than most of the work on Bethlehem – grooving in a free-wheeling "chase" mode, as you might guess from the title ... read more CD

One of the greatest albums ever from trombonist Roswell Rudd – an early Impulse Records session, cut right at a time when Rudd was a crucial part of the New York "new thing" scene in the 60s!

One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from trombonist Roswell Rudd – and a record that shows that he's still got a hell of a lot to offer us after all these years! The title and cover seem like a bit of a joke, especially given Rudd's roots in the avant garde – yet the ... read more CD
