Archie SheppDown Home New York ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1984. New Copy .... $12.99 16.98
An overlooked killer from Archie Shepp – a set that almost recalls some of the spiritual moments of his later Impulse work, and which definitely has him moving past some of the straighter sounds of this period in his career!

Archie SheppKwanza ... CD
Impulse, 1969. Used .... $5.99
A brilliant little album from Archie Shepp – material recorded on a variety of dates at the end of the 60s, but packaged together as an extremely soulful set in the mid 70s! There's a feel here that rivals some of the best moments of the Attica Blues years – a mix of spiritual soul ... read more CD

Archie SheppMontreux One ... CD
Arista Freedom/DA Music (Germany), 1975. Used .... Just Sold Out!
Great live material from Shepp – not out or crazy, but also not spiritual or hippy dippy, either. The record's kind of a perfectly soulful straight ahead set – in a mode that hints at the traditional direction Shepp would take at the time, but with a lot more interesting moments. The ... read more CD

Double-length brilliance from the mighty Sahib Shihab – a set that collects a number of killer 60s sessions with members of the Clarke Boland Big Band – all of them great! The small combo work here is amazing – hard-hitting modal jazz that matches, if not tops the best MPS/Saba ... read more CD

New Wayne ShorterOdyssey Of Iska ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... $18.99
A very unusual album for Wayne Shorter – recorded right around that 1970 point when Duke Pearson was exploring formats for Blue Note artists that included larger, often electric arrangements, pointing the way towards some of the later 70s soul jazz work on labels like Kudu or CTI! This set, ... read more CD

A great late 60s gem from pianist Horace Silver – and a great bridge between his earlier soul jazz for Blue Note, and some of his more righteous work to come in the 70s! At one level, the sound here steps off from classics like Serenade To A Soul Sister or The Jody Grind – but at ... read more CD

Boite A Musique/Universal (France), 1956. New Copy .... $14.99
Amazing work from a player we barely know – American pianist Art Simmons, really smoking here in a late 50s session from Paris!

Brilliant work – and one of the rare few albums to feature the genius alto of Sonny Simmons from the 60s!

A very well-titled album – as it definitely features Zoot Sims and Al Cohn stretching out – pushing their groove a bit more than on some of their tightly-composed mid 50s sessions for RCA! The lineup is still slightly large – an octet that features Zoot and Al on tenor, plus the ... read more CD

Jazzland (Norway), 2012. New Copy .... $9.99
Moodier music than you might guess from the lush image on the cover – a really evocative mix of acoustic and electronic elements – filtered together in ways that lie somewhere between the world/jazz experiments of 70s Sweden, and some of the more creative moments at ECM! The music's ... read more CD

A great tenorist, heard here in a wonderfully rich setting – a set of long, open tracks that really let Grant Stewart solo strongly – all with the special sort of energy that seems to take place in these Smalls Live recordings!

Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy .... $13.99
Sweet 70s work from Sonny Stitt – quite different than his bop years, but with a smooth funky finish that puts it in the same territory as CTI or Kudu Records in the 70s! Sonny's getting full backing here – arrangements by Don Sebesky, who crafts some elegant and slinky sounds for the ... read more CD

Verve/Essential Jazz (Spain), 1957. Used .... $14.99
Probably the most classic of Stitt's sides for Verve – and certainly the one that gets rated time and time again by jazz collectors. We think it's pretty darn great – although we always wonder why folks don't give Stitt's other sides for Verve as much of a chance, because they're all ... read more CD

Classic Sonny Stitt for Verve – one of those masterful albums he cut for the label in the 50s – all in a format that's misleadingly simple on paper, but surprisingly complex in execution! Stitt's backed by a trio that includes Lou Levy on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Mel Lewis on ... read more CD

Roost (Japan), 1958. New Copy .... $10.99
Magical Stitt work on Roost – an album of marked understatement, from the simple title, standard cover, and lack of session details on the back – all of which might make you think "oh yeah, heard this one before." But one drop of the needle opens the album up immediately ... read more CD

Roost/EMI (Japan), 1955. New Copy .... $15.99
Sonny Stitt plus the early genius of Quincy Jones – a really great combination that makes for a standout session on Roost!

Sonny Stitt goes Latin – and the results are tremendous! The set's still got all the soulful feel of the best Stitt sessions for Roost, but it brings in some nice Latin rhythms too – inflecting things with that blend of soul jazz and congas you might find over at Prestige or Blue Note, ... read more CD

An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great ... read more CD
