New Barney WilenBarney (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1959. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
One of the most classic albums ever from tenorist Barney Wilen – recorded at a time when he was making big waves on both sides of the Atlantic! The tracks are longer than on some of Wilen's more tightly-arranged albums – which really gives Barney a chance to show off his tremendous ... read more CD

Barney WilenBarney Wilen Quintet (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Jazztone/Sam Records (France), 1957. New Copy .... $34.99
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! The date's a great illustration of Wilen's amazingly deft talents on the tenor right from the start – a keen ear for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney WilenMoshi Too – Unreleased Tapes Recorded In Africa 1969 to 1970 ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy .... $19.99
Amazing music from the legendary Barney Wilen – previously unreleased African recordings, done around the same time as his classic Moshi album!

Baby Face WilletteBehind The 8 Ball ... LP
Argo/Chess, 1964. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
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. He's got a tight trio here, with Ben White on guitar and Jerry ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mary Lou Williams/Barbara CarrollLadies Of Jazz ... CD
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

Tony WilliamsJoy Of Flying ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1979. New Copy .... $13.99
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

Stu WilliamsonStu Williamson ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy .... $13.99
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

Billy Wooten with Richard Groove HolmesPlace To Start ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1986. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
A lost chapter of genius from vibes player Billy Wooten – and a great one too! The set's a rare outing with Hammond giant Groove Holmes – laid out nicely here in a quartet setting that offers up plenty of Billy's great vibes mixed with the organ – in a mode that's very different ... read more CD

Nonesuch, 1986. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
One of their best ones, and a tight set of Ellington tracks that works perfectly with their multi-horn style.

Bernie WorrellElevation – The Upper Air – Solo Piano ... CD
MOD Technologies, 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... $13.99 14.99
A really surprising change from keyboardist Bernie Worrell – not the funky electric work he cut with George Clinton, nor the darker sounds he did with Bill Laswell – but a sublime album of solo piano that shows a whole new side of Bernie's talents! The album is produced by Laswell, but ... read more CD

Frank Wright TrioFrank Wright Trio ... CD
ESP (Germany), 1965. Used .... $9.99
A freewheeling workout in the classic ESP mode – tenor saxophonist Frank Wright's first album as a leader, and a majestic little session that easily stands alongside the best from Albert Ayler and Archie Shepp at the time! The format here is a bit like that of Ayler's ESP work – as ... read more CD

Leo WrightSoul Talk ... LP
Vortex, 1963. Very Good .... $8.99
A rare soul jazz session from alto saxophonist Leo Wright – a player that we mostly know from his bossa work of the early 60s!

Leo WrightSuddenly The Blues ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... $15.99
A record of incredible beauty from the great Leo Wright – and one that we'd never part with at all! Wright's one of those excellent players from the 60s who never really gets his due – largely because he was always hiding behind larger groups, and because he left the US in the decade ... read more CD

Way more than just a sweet beat – because everything about these grooves is great – a rich array of jazzy tracks from Polish reedman Jan Ptasyn Wroblewski, cut in a style that rivals the best European jazz sides of the late 60s – but also done with an occasional soundtrack vibe as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tsuyoshi YamamotoMidnight Sugar (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... $28.99
The midnight sugar here comes from pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto – who's playing with a soulful, bluesy sort of style – one that reminds us a bit of Ray Bryant back in the 60s, but which also comes across here with a fair bit of lighter, lyrical touches as well! As with other Three Blind ... read more CD

Long tracks and plenty of room to groove – a really great little session from Japanese pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto, and one with some added conga to boot!

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto TrioMisty ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... $28.99
Not "Misty" in an Errol Garner sense – although Tsuyoshi Yamamoto serves up his own version of the tune here – and instead a hip set from the Three Blind Mice scene of the 70s, with a very open, freewheeling approach to piano trio work! Yamamoto's a bit straighter than some ... read more CD

MPS/Universal (Japan), 1975. Used .... Just Sold Out!
Stunning free jazz work from Japan! Pianist Yosuke Yamashita leads a trio that includes altoist Akira Sakata and drummer Takeo Moriyama – and the group has clearly absorbed a lot of influences of the free jazz scene developing in Europe during the late 60s.

An unusual name for a jazz group, but a great combo who've really got a way for making some very fresh sounds – all while staying in some relatively tuneful territory!

Blue Note (Japan), 1967. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
One of the best Larry Young albums for Blue Note – and a record that really gets at his unique conception and style in the 60s! The session's a key bridge between Larry's soul jazz roots and his more far-reaching experimental work – filled with deep, heavy grooves – yet mixed ... read more CD

Larry YoungGroove Street ... LP
Prestige, 1962. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A very tight early session by the great organist Larry Young! The album's quite different than Young's later Blue Note work – more in-the-pocket soul jazz, but filled with the expansive sensibility that would later have him take off for the heavens. The biggest example of this tendency is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible album from the man that changed the way the world hears the Hammond!

Quite possibly the greatest Larry Young album of the post-Blue Note years – and a massive bit of funk that totally redefines his sound!

Blue Note (Japan), 1966. New Copy .... $18.99
The most free-thinking Larry Young album of the 60s – and that's saying a lot, considering the rest of his work! The session's quite an unusual one – with two drummers in the group, grounding a sextet that features Larry on organ, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Herbert Morgan on ... read more CD
