Elvin JonesElvin Jones Coalition (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1970. New Copy (reissue).... $26.99
A stunning early set as a leader from Elvin Jones – both a tremendous demonstration of the free energy he let loose after the passing of John Coltrane, and a set that's also still got some key Coltrane-esque elements!

New Elvin JonesMidnight Walk ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
One of Elvin Jones' greatest records – a set that's quite different from both his work in the John Coltrane Quartet, and some of the powerhouse jazz sides he'd cut later as a solo act!

A landmark session that features two of the greatest tenor talents to emerge from the rich Chicago scene of the 50s!

Despite the stupid name (or perhaps because of it), this is one of the great lost sessions of the 60s!

EMI/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue).... $49.99
A late date for Brit bandleader Vic Lewis – but a great one too, thanks to a strong focus on the bossa nova sounds of the 60s!
