New Elvin JonesPoly-Currents ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
The title's a great one for this post-Coltrane cooker from Elvin Jones – as the set really has Elvin exploring some really fresh currents in jazz, with a range of complicated rhythms that really pull the whole session along strongly!

Philly Joe JonesPhilly Joe's Beat ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1960. New Copy .... $14.99
A stunner! Philly Joe's Beat is a beautiful bit of modernist hardbop by the drummer. Philly Joe pounds away with his usual clarity and groove, but the real treat is an unexpected appearance by the great Bill Barron, who plays tenor on the session. Barron's tenor is amazingly precise, and filled ... read more CD

Quincy just never stopped putting out classic soulful albums!
