Craig HandyCraig Handy & 2nd Line Smith ... CD
Okeh, 2014. New Copy .... $11.99
A pretty great concept from tenorist Craig Handy – a set that seeks to rework the songbook of Hammond hero Jimmy Smith, but with rhythmic influences borrowed from the second-line styles of New Orleans! The approach is less hokey than you might expect – as the Nola influences come ... read more CD

Weber IagoPiano Masters Series Vol 3 ... CD
Adventure Music, 2012. New Copy .... $8.99 15.99
A soaring set of solo piano from Weber Iago – music that bubbles and flows with a beautifully spontaneous quality – almost in the mode of a lost ECM session from the 70, but with all the warmth we've come to love from the Adventure Music label! The set may well be the best so far in ... read more CD

Ekapa/Enja (Germany), 1985. New Copy .... $11.99
A real standout for Dollar Brand – and one of those few records that features him letting loose with a slightly larger jazz group – in this case a septet of American players that features some great horn work by Ricky Ford on tenor, Carlos Ward on alto, Charles Davis on baritone, and ... read more CD

Enja (Germany), 1995. New Copy .... $11.99
A beautifully sensitive set from Abdullah Ibrahim – recorded live at the Village Vanguard, and with an open, lyrical sound that almost seems to recall some of Bill Evans' magical moments in the venue! Ibrahim's quite a different player, of course – but there's an open, exploratory ... read more CD

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy .... $28.99
A great little record from the Japanese scene of the 70s – a set that not only shows the great blend of acoustic and electric styles that was happening at the time, but which also really illustrates the inventive approach of the Three Blind Mice label at their best!

Masaru ImadaPoppy (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1973. New Copy Gatefold .... $28.99
Really lovely piano work from Masaru Imada – a player who's a bit gentler than some of his Japanese contemporaries of the early 70s, but who also works with this wonderfully lyrical tone! Imada does a great job of balancing a sense of flow with a punctuated approach to the keys – never ... read more CD

Jiro Inagaki & His Soul MediaJazz Rock Legend ... CD
Columbia (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy .... $26.99
A killer collection of work from one of the funkiest Japanese groups of the early 70s – billed as jazz rock in the title, but with a much deeper sound overall! Reedman Jiro Inagaki definitely comes from jazz roots, but has also picked up plenty of trippy touches from the late 60s too – ... read more CD

Albore Jazz (Japan), 2009. New Copy .... $19.99
An already-great quartet – augmented by some wicked trumpet work by Fabrizio Bosso! The group perfectly sums up everything that's great about the contemporary Italian jazz scene – a sound that has its roots in classic hardbop of the 50s and 60s, but a youthful energy that instantly ... read more CD

Strata East/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Weldon Irvine meets Strata East – and the result is one of the keyboardist's funkiest albums ever! The set's more jazz-based than the soul/funk outings Weldon cut for RCA and his own label – with great focus on Weldon's lines on clavinet and Fender Rhodes – supported by sweet ... read more CD

Jacaranda MuseSeptember Sun ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2012. New Copy Gatefold .... $9.99

Willis JacksonAfter Hours (Loose/Soul Grabber) ... CD
Prestige, 1963/1967. New Copy .... $5.99 18.98
Don't be put off by the title of the set – because it's not some snoozy "after hours" album of ballads! Instead, it's a great pairing of two rare cookers from the great Willis Jackson – both of them hard-wailing sets that cook in a classic 60s organ/tenor mode! Loose is from ... read more CD

Seminal early work from Willis Jackson – two classics back to back on a single CD! Blue Gator is a massive early Prestige set from tenorist Willis – and just the kind of record that set him firmly in the soul jazz camp for the 60s! By the time of the set, Jackson had already won ... read more CD

A rare performance from two 40s giants of the saxophone – tenorist Illinois Jacquet and baritonist Leo Parker – coming together here in a live setting, with tracks that run a lot longer than most studio work from either player at the time! Given that Jacquet's horn is played at a ... read more CD

Never-heard work from tenorist Bent Jaedig – easily one of the most important figures on the Danish jazz scene in the 60s!

The Jazz Crusaders at the start of the 70s – taking on a bit of The Beatles and some great grooves of their own – and picking up a fair bit of funk in the process! The album still has the group working in the best modes of their late 60s Liberty years – more jazz than fusion, ... read more CD
