New Jazz CrusadersTough Talk (1963 – single LP) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Great early Crusaders stuff,and like many of their 60s sides, filled with memorable soul jazz that would become the template for a sound that would become the face of popular jazz for decades.

Jazz PickersCommand Performance – The Jazz Pickers Featuring Red Norvo ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A cool little set from bassist Harry Babasin – a 50s album from his Jazz Pickers combo, a group who mostly handles stringed instruments picked, or plucked, in a very groovy way! The approach has distinct west coast 50s elements – and given that Red Norvo's working with them here on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz PickersJazz Pickers – For Moderns Only ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The "pickers" in the group's name refers to the way they play – tight and plucked, in the manner of some of the work of the Chico Hamilton quintet of the late 50s. No surprise, the group features Chico's reedman Buddy Collette on flute, and cellist Harry Babasin on cello (natch!) ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Francois JeanneauTechniques Douces ... LP
Owl (France), 1976. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Free-flowing and angular reed work from Francois Jeanneau – a fair bit more soulful than you might guess from the "techniques" in the title!

Harold JohnsonWide Open ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the few rare albums cut by this great LA-based soul jazz pianist!

Harold Johnson SextetHouse On Elm Street (Revue pressing) ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good ... $33.99
A killer album! The Harold Johnson Sextet were an incredible little LA soul jazz combo during the late 60s. Johnson was a very soulful pianist, and he had a heavy soul style that was similar to Ramsey Lewis' Cadet work – but which was also tinged with the lyricism of Horace Silver, and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1967. Very Good- ... $3.99

AVA, 1963. Very Good ... $16.99
Great work from one of the grooviest pianists of the 60s – a player who could always keep things lively and swinging, even in a small combo session!

Boogaloo Joe JonesWhat It Is ... LP
Prestige, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Killer funkiness from Boogaloo Joe Jones!

Elvin JonesMidnight Walk ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $14.99
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!

2LP set that brings together 2 different unreleased sessions recorded by Jones for Blue Note. The first session's from 1973, and features a fairly large group with the choppy fusion sound that Jones was hitting in the early 70s.

Contemporary, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
A nice follow-up to the original Poll Winners set on Contemporary – one that features the trio of Barney Kessel, Shelly Manne, and Ray Brown – all working in a relatively relaxed setting, and hitting a vibe that's a bit more easygoing than you'd expect to catch for Contemporary at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Roland KirkHere Comes The Whistleman ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good ... $16.99
A stone classic from Roland Kirk – and a record that beautifully balances his modern ideas and playful energy – as you might guess from the title! While posing as the "whistleman", Roland's also pushing the boundaries of jazz a few steps forward too – not just in modern ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An undisputed classic – and a key turning point in the career of Roland Kirk! The set has Roland leading a large group of musicians through a haunting batch of complicated tracks that clearly illustrate his much-heralded concept of Black Classical Music – a mixture of jazz, older ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John KlemmerFresh Feathers ... LP
ABC, 1974. Very Good ... $2.99
Fairly funky set of tracks in which Klemmer plays electric and acoustic tenor, and in which he's accompanied by LA studio jazz talents like Harvey Mason, Wilton Felder, and Victor Feldman. Sounds a bit like some of the Eddie Harris Varitone albums from the time, with a rolling funky groove. Cuts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John KlemmerMagic & Movement ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent work by Klemmer – filled with the kind of fire and emotion that you don't get on many of his other records! The set was recorded live at two different venues – and it's a choppy slightly-funky batch of modal soul jazz tunes, with an approach that makes it feel like a lost ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eric KlossGrits & Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Totally great work from a young Eric Kloss – grits, gravy, and a whole lot more! About half the record has Kloss blowing with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums – going for a style that's more towards the soulful end of Byard's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Eric KlossIntroducing Eric Kloss With Don Patterson ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good- ... $8.99
Eric Kloss' great first jazz outing, recorded back when he was a teenage virtuoso attending the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children. Recorded with Don Patterson's trio, with Pat Martino on guitar, and very (and surprisingly) groovy all the way through. The tracks are mostly standards, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eric KlossLife Force ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good- ... $12.99
A pivotal album for Eric Kloss, and one that has him reaching for the freer style that would characterize his work for the next decade – but which also has him sticking pretty close to his soul jazz roots, and laying down some tight modal grooves. The group here includes Jimmy Owens on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Eric KlossLove & All That Jazz ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Very Good ... $8.99
Great early Eric Kloss record, with a tight organ jazz feel, courtesy of Groove Holmes and Don Patterson. Kloss was totally tight at this point, and less given to the sort of sloppy experimentation that weakened him later. He's backed by two great tight organ jazz groups, and the feel is nice and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Playback, 1959. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A hip little album from pianist Paul Knopf – a player we don't know at all, but who really sounds wonderful here! Knopf has a bit of a modern edge in his music – one that's never too academic, nor too free – but which bursts out with a cool sort of energy here – almost ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Moe KoffmanJungle Man ... LP
GRT, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An obscure later set from the funky flute man – who also plays alto, tenor, and soprano sax too – with some keyboards in the mix, and a sweetly soulful sound! The whole thing's got a great sort of CTI/Kudu vibe – and the record's even divided up into feminine and masculine sides! LP, Vinyl record album

Moe KoffmanMuseum Pieces ... LP
Janus, 1978. Sealed ... $6.99
A groovy album of moody electric funk tracks from Moe Koffman – and probably one of his best records from the 70s! The groove is nice and rolling, with less of the break-oriented sound than you might expect, but still with some very nice mellow, almost CTI-ish moments, thanks to keyboards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jubilee, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the nicest albums cut by funky flute player Moe Koffman – kind of a batch of groovy 60s instrumentals, but with more of a soul tinge than you'd expect by the cover. The record features nice originals by Koffman called "James Brown's Bag" and "Funky Monkey" – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful mid 70s side from Konitz, joined here by a lithe quintet that features Ted Brown on tenor, and Rufus Rei, Albert Dailey and Joe Chambers in the rhythm section.

Milestone, 1971. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A nice little session from Lee Konitz – simple, without many tricks, and a great 70s extension of the sound of his 50s work! The group's a quartet with Sal Mosca on piano – and on a number of tracks, the pair of them play together alone, Lee blowing introspectively, and Sal working in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great set of tracks by this oft-overlooked swing guitarist.
