Jazz PickersJazz Pickers – For Moderns Only ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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! The setting is relaxed and almost informal, but moves along with that subtle sense of groove that often marked the best Owl Records sessions ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bill Jennings & Jack McDuffGlide On (second cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1960. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A groovy glide from the mighty Bill Jennings – making a key transition here from earlier R&B into hipper soul jazz – thanks to the help of organist Jack McDuff! Bill was Jack's guitarist on a few of his key early Prestige dates, but the roles are reversed here – with Jennings ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
Groovy little record that has this funky tenor giant playing a bunch of tracks with a Frenchy feel to them. Budd's joined by Hank Jones on piano, plus Kenny Burrell on guitar, and a nice Latin rhythm section that includes Joe Venuto on vibes and marimba and Willie Rodriguez on percussion. The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Budd JohnsonLet's Swing ... LP
Prestige/Swingville, 1960. Very Good- ... $11.99
Let's Swing – and swing Budd does, in that wonderfully easy-going manner of his – a style that seems almost effortless at times, but which always comes across with plenty of soul! Johnson's tenor is a great fit for the style of Prestige's Swingville label – as he has plenty of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New 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 ... $39.99
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

JJ JohnsonGoodies ... LP
RCA, 1965. Sealed ... $14.99
One of the lesser-known JJ Johnson albums of the mid 60s – and nice little session that's done with a fresh sort of style!

JJ JohnsonJazz South Pacific ... LP
Regent, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $11.99
Although this looks like it should be a hard bop version of tracks from the hit musical, it's actually just a swinging set of jazz featuring JJ Johnson on trombone, Howard McGhee on trumpet, and Rudy Williams on tenor.

JJ JohnsonJJ's Broadway ... LP
Verve, 1963. Near Mint- ... $5.99
JJ's Broadway is a-ok with us – a hip mix of small group tunes, played with the great Walter Perkins on drums, and handled with a much more complicated approach than most other "jazz meets Broadway" type albums! About half the tracks feature a quartet with Perkins on drums, plus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New JJ Johnson, Howard McGhee, Max Roach, & OthersTribute To Charlie Parker – From The Newport Jazz Festival ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good+ ... $5.99

New Rudolph JohnsonSpring Rain ... LP
Black Jazz, 1971. Very Good ... $39.99
One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Rudolph Johnson – a hell of a saxophonist, and one with a great ability to combine the spiritual with the searing – a bit like Joe Farrell at his CTI best, but not as freewheeling – nicely focused, and a little bit funky in all the right ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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! The album's one of Pete Jolly's gems for the Ava label – a follow-up to his semi-hit Little Bird, and like that one, a record done with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Jolly & His TrioHello, Jolly! ... LP
AVA, 1964. Sealed ... $9.99

Boogaloo Joe JonesWhat It Is ... LP
Prestige, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Killer funkiness from Boogaloo Joe Jones! Grover Washington Jr makes an incredible appearance here – sounding much harder and heavier than on some of his Kudu recordings – more of a gritty soul jazz player, working beautifully alongside the sharp guitar of Boogaloo Joe Jones, and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin JonesElvin Jones Coalition ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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! As with other Jones albums to follow, Elvin's got some key reedmen on hand ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New 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! The vibe here is a bit hard to describe, but it somehow comes together in the "midnight walk" of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hank JonesTalented Touch ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Sealed ... $9.99
The title certainly gets it right – as the album's an early showcase for the piano of Hank Jones – a talented touch that's already able to rise above most of his contemporaries!

Prestige, 1973. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!

A really great, oft-overlooked album from the best period of Quincy Jones!

Although Shake Keane was one of Britain's best modern jazz players of the late 50s and early 60s, his star had fallen somewhat by the time he cut this album of dreamy instrumentals with the big band of Johnny Keating.

A tight little set from Barney – recorded in 1960 at a back room studio at Contemporary with a small live audience!

Barney Kessel & Harold LandEl Tigre ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $39.99
An obscure session on the Charlie Parker label – and a nicely laidback session that features a hip west coast group!

Storyville, 1954. Very Good- ... $34.99
Great early work from vocalist Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work!

New Rahsaan Roland KirkKirkatron ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
Later genius from Rahsaan Roland Kirk – a record of wonderful depth and soul, and a session that moves back to the straighter jazz focus of some of his work from the Mercury years – yet still keeps all the personality and charm of the best Atlantic sides!

Roland Kirk with Jack McDuffKirk's Work (Prestige) ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A strange and tasty little album that Roland Kirk made with organist Jack McDuff in the early 60s – one of his few outings in such a format, and a smoking little session that almost makes us wish he'd cut more of them!

Excellent work by Klemmer – filled with the kind of fire and emotion that you don't get on many of his other records!

A hip little album from pianist Paul Knopf – a player we don't know at all, but who really sounds wonderful here!

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!
