Delmark, 2012. New Copy .... $11.99 15.99
One of the most striking records so far from the mighty Rob Mazurek – a set that makes us more than glad we've been following his musical journey for the past two decades! The set's got a nicely compressed feel – one that takes some of the looser energy that's been bubbling up in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCannBucket O' Grease ... LP
Limelight, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
A killer little set from Les McCann – one of his greatest records of the 60s, thanks to a fair bit of Latin Soul influences! The album's got a groove that's much grittier than Les' other work – a solid, soulful emphasis on bottom rhythms – which are mostly in a boogaloo and shing- ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Les McCannLes McCann Ltd In San Francisco ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good- .... $2.99
Early work from Les – recording at the Jazz Workshop in SF, with his famous trio that included Herbie Lewis on bass and Ron Jefferson on drums. The album's pretty standard fare – short soul jazz piano numbers, with more than a bit of church in the grooves. Titles include "Come On ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has some wear, some splitting and tape on the seams, and pen on the back.)

Les McCannTalk To The People ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ .... $12.99
One of the best of Les McCann's 70s Atlantic recordings, and one that captures him with a lot of fire and funkiness – and none of the looser modes of other recordings from the time! Les sings on about half the cuts – but the focus is still quite strongly on his funky jazz, which makes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Les McCann & The Jazz CrusadersJazz Waltz ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ .... $4.99
A real cooker – and a stone soulful set that works some real magic at so many levels! First off, the record brings together two of the hottest talents on the west coast scene of the 60s – pianist Les McCann, and the firey young Jazz Crusaders – who are really burning here with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

Corky McClerkinSearchin For The Soul ... LP
WinCor, 1983. New Copy (reissue).... $13.99
A classic set of soul jazz from Chicago – a rare indie date recorded in the early 80s, but with a tight and swinging feel that's more 70s jazz funk than you might think! Corky's on Yamaha keyboards, and he's backed by a hip group of Chicago players that includes Curtis Prince on drums, Artee ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Freddie McCoyGimme Some! ... LP
Cobblestone, Early 70s. Good .... $5.99
Moody set of soul jazz vibes tracks with more of an electric feel than Freddie's albums for Prestige. He's playing out front, and he's backed by Dave Blume on electric piano and organ – while a rhythm combo backs them up, and a vocal ensemble joins in on a few tracks. Titles include "Gi ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(PLEASE NOTE: Vinyl is mostly clean but has some heat damage that causes the cartridge wobble throughout play. Cover has peeling in the bottom right corner, some stains, a partially split bottom seam, a peeled gloss finish, and light wear.)

Freddie McCoyListen Here ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good .... $24.99
One of the hardest to find albums by this lost 60s soul jazz vibist – and all of his albums are pretty darn hard to find! The album's also perhaps his best – as Freddie takes a little more straight funky jazz approach, and loses some of the pop feel of his other albums. There's 2 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Side 2 has a mark that plays with a light click on track one. Cover has a cut corner, a peeled spot on the spine, some moisture staining, a small split on the top seam, and some creasing along the opening.)

New Jack McDuffDo It Now! ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint- .... $19.99
Tight funky instrumentals from Brother Jack McDuff – an Atlantic groover that's probably closer to his late 60s gems for Cadet Records than it is his earlier work for Prestige! The solos are shorter, but they're packed nicely around the rhythms – played by a combo that features a young ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing – in wonderful shape! Cover has a small cutout hole, but is otherwise wonderful.)
Also available Do It Now! ... CD 14.99

Jack McDuffDown Home Style ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $9.99
A really unusual album for Jack McDuff – one that was recorded in Memphis, with a lineup and a feel that's quite different from other Blue Note sessions of the time! There's a lot of electricity bubbling in the record – and although McDuff normally never worked with a bassist on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuffGin & Orange ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good- .... Just Sold Out!
Fuzzy, funky genius from the great Jack McDuff – a killer late 60s set done for Chess Records, and one that mixes his own searing Hammond with wicked arrangements from the mighty Richard Evans! Given Evans' background in the Chicago soul scene, there's a gritty groove here you don't get on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original blue label pressing. Vinyl has some marks that click. Cover is worn, with splitting and tape on the bottom seam and some marker on the back.)

Jack McDuffGoodnight, It's Time To Go (aka Sanctified!) ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good- .... $11.99
A pivotal album for Brother Jack McDuff – and one that has him cleaning the sound of his Hammond a bit – moving into the lean, clear tone that would dominate his work for most of the 60s! There's a great sense of focus here – one that moves past simple R&B-influenced organ ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue lable pressing. Vinyl has some marks that click. Cover has light wear and a bit of aging.)

New Jack McDuffPrelude ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+ .... $9.99
Soul jazz organ with big band? It's been done – and never better than on this set – which features Brother Jack's classic quartet – with George Benson, Red Hollway, and Joe Dukes – next to the the screamin' orchestrations of a hip Benny Golson! Golson leads a crack band ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuffWalk On By ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Very Good- .... $11.99
Wonderful stuff from Brother Jack McDuff – very hip, with a mixture of soul jazz and 60s grooving that's hard to beat! The album's also one of Jack's harder to find numbers on Prestige – and it features tenor work by Red Holloway and Harold Ousely, guitar by Pat Azzara, drums by Joe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Vinyl has a couple of marks that play with light clicks. Cover has marker and pen on the front and back, some wear, split top and bottom seams, a cutout hole, light staining along the spine, and a few other light stains.)

Gary McFarlandScorpio & Other Signs ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $7.99
Great stuff from Gary – one of his more obscure albums, and a record dedicated to the signs of the Zodiac! The tracks are a mixture of Gary's usual easy jazz approach – with vibes, whistling, and bossa-style rhythms showing up a lot – plus a few more driving numbers that are more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Skye, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold .... $2.99
A wonderful album from the great Gary McFarland – and completely sublime all the way through!

Howard McGheeReturn Of Howard McGhee (180 gram analogue pressing) ... LP
Bethlehem/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1955. New Copy (reissue).... $34.99 40.99
Easily one of the best albums ever cut by this oft-overlooked bop trumpeter – and a clean, clear, no-nonsense session played with some great modern touches! The session really steps off from McGhee's earlier work nicely – and is noteworthy not only for Howard's great trumpet work, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mike McGinnisAngsudden Song Cycle (with bonus CD) ... LP
482 Music, 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... $21.99 24.99
A very evocative song cycle from reedman Mike McGinnis – more like a longer sonic poem, served up both in some beautiful acoustic instrumentation, and some occasional vocalizations on a few tracks! Mike himself plays bass and regular clarinet – in a lineup that also includes Sara ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriffFly Dude ... LP
Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Very Good .... $1.99
Some great down-home work from Jimmy McGriff – a session that's a bit less funk-based than some of his others for the Groove Merchant label, but still plenty darn great! The set's kind of a nice link between the straighter soul jazz of McGriff's 60s years, and his return to the format at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy McGriffIf You're Ready Come Go With Me – The Super Funk Collection ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1974. Very Good .... $5.99
Funky early 70s work by Jimmy McGriff – a mix of tight groovers and more open soul jazz numbers – all of which represent some of his best moments for the Groove Merchant label! Jimmy's got a lean, mean sound on these tracks – and even when the backings are full, they've got the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jimmy McGriffLet's Stay Together ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1972. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
An early 70s gem from Jimmy McGriff! Jimmy's grooving with a larger group here – but in a funky 70s mode that makes for a great update of the rawer sound he laid out on some of his Sue sides in the 60s. The best tracks are the covers of 70s soul material – like "Shaft", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriffSoul Sugar ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A fantastic album, and one of Jimmy's hardest to find! The set is quite different than most of Jimmy's other work – and it features short, hard, funky tracks that feel more like obscure 7" singles than any of Jimmy's straighter soul jazz work. It almost sounds like The JBs are backing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An intensely jamming album from guitarist John McLaughlin – and a record that set a whole new tone for electric jazz in the 70s!

Blue Note, 1965/1979. Near Mint- .... $11.99
A great slice from Jackie McLean's rare unissued 60s sessions for Blue Note – a rollingly soulful session that stands in stark contrast to some of his more modern sides of the time!

Blue Note, 1963. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99

One of Joe McPhee's strongest early albums – and a real breakthrough from his sound on Nation Time!
