Trio (Japan), 1976. Very Good+ 2LP ... $24.99
A 25th Anniversary performance from one of Japan's greatest big bands – really stepping out here in a great mix of modes from the 70s!

Herbie HarperFive Brothers (aka Herbie Harper Quintet) ... LP
Tampa, 1955. Very Good ... $19.99
Arguably the greatest session ever cut by trombonist Herbie Harper as a leader – and if not that, then certainly the one that has the most edge! Herbie's working here in a mode that's still as fluid as some of his other sessions from the 50s, but which also has a bit more of a "rasp" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pink label pressing with deep groove. Cover's in nice shape, save for a split top seam and a partially split bottom seam.)

Herbie HarperHerbie Harper – Bud Shank – Bob Gordon ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Trombonist Herbie Harper was one of the best underground talents on the LA cool jazz scene of the 50s – and although he cut albums like this, full of tight playing and imagination, he never really got the due that he deserved. He's heard here in two groupings – one with Bud Shank on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice original pressing! Cover is heavy and intact, but has some light fading in one corner, and a small mark from an old sticker.)

Joe HarriottBBC Jazz For Moderns (with download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $34.99
Much-needed material from saxophonist Joe Harriott – a hell of a player, and one whose few dates as a leader are always worth tracking down! This set was originally recorded by the BBC in 1962 – and only gets its first issue now – a beautiful batch of tunes that really show ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Beaver Harris & The 360 Degree Music ExperienceFrom Rag Time To No Time ... LP
360 Degrees, 1974. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Hardly any ragtime here – despite the title – and instead, the album's one of the greatest ever from drummer Beaver Harris – cut with his ultra-hip 360 Degree Music Experience group! The title is somewhat accurate in that the record brings together a long history of jazz-based ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bill HarrisGreat Guitar Sounds ... LP
Mercury/Wing, Mid 50s/1959. Very Good ... $1.99
A great 50s session from guitarist Bill Harris – known for his work in The Clovers, but a great jazz player as well! The sound here is really unique – very different than even his other albums of the time – in that Bill is playing solo acoustic guitar, in a style that's almost ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bill HarrisHarris Touch ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Very nice album of short jazzy cuts, recorded by Bill Harris, the guitarist for The Clovers. This Bill's not to be confused with the trombonist Bill, also from the same era – as his sound's a lot more soulful, with nice touches of his R&B roots. Titles include "Golden Sunset", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label drummer logo pressing with deep groove. Side 1 has marks that click a bit on tracks three and four. Cover has some wear, aging, and partially split top and bottom seams.)

Eddie HarrisBad Luck Is All I Have ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
Not a great jazz record, but a pretty nice funky soul album by Eddie – who by this point was really electrifying his sax, playing a bit of piano, and even singing in a range of different styles. The best moments are those that kind of push the envelope technique-wise – operating with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie HarrisCome On Down! ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good ... $2.99

Eddie's still got the electric Varitone ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vee Jay/Sunset, Early 60s/Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Although this set was issued on Sunset during the late 60s, it's most likely comprised of material recorded for Vee Jay earlier in the decade – when Harris was working in a groundbreaking style that mixed soul jazz and exoticism, into an amazing blend that still deserves huge recognition ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie HarrisI'm Tired Of Driving ... LP
RCA, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Less of a jazz album than some of Eddie's other records – but that's ok with us! As a soul album, the record's actually pretty darn great – arranged and produced by Richard Evans with a late Chicago soul approach that has Eddie's funky sax stepping amidst some larger orchestrations and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Damn great work from the amazing Eddie Harris – a record that's got a perfect blend of jazz and funk, but still holds onto more righteous elements too!

Up Front, Early 60s/Late 60s. Sealed ... $4.99
No real dates or notes on the cover, but the album appears to include some of Eddie's excellent early work for the Vee Jay label – a wonderful blend of soul jazz and slightly experimental phrasing, and the kind of groundbreaking material that got Eddie noticed very early on in his career. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Harris really steps into the solo spotlight here – moving away from his work with the Three Sounds trio, and headed into even more righteous territory – as you might guess from the trippy image on the cover! The set features Harris mostly on acoustic piano, but amidst larger ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1965. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Brilliant work from that hip 60s period when Hampton Hawes was really stretching out his sound – building on his already-great style of the 50s, by adding in more complex lines and unusual tones – creating far more depth in his music than ever before! In a way, there's a bit of a Bill ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful 60s work from Hampton Hawes – a set from the middle of the decade, a period when he wasn't recorded all that often – but one not issued by Contemporary until his American revival in the 70s!
