Tappan Zee/Decision, 1970s/Early 80s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Great work from a player who's maybe one of the best cats ever to handle a Fender Rhodes – and certainly one of the few who really helped push it strongly in jazz during the 70s!

Shake KeaneBig Fat Horn Of Shake Keane (aka Shake Keane With The Keating Sound) ... LP
London, 1965. Very Good ... $2.99
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. Still, the record's not a bad batch of pop jazz tunes – with Keane's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Regina, 1964. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A surprisingly nice record – and one of Roger Kellaway's best straight jazz sessions of the 60s! The set's a gently grooving one, featuring many original compositions by Kellaway – played in a playful and freewheeling style that's a lot better than we would have imagined. Roger's a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wynton KellyKelly Blue ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1956. Very Good ... $12.99
One of Kenton's greatest records, and the one in which he proves his dedication to Latin styles, by serving up a killer batch of Afro-Cuban tracks with an incredibly authentic feel.

Sublime vocal work from Stan Kenton – some of his best experiments with voice!

New Robin KenyattaGypsy Man ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Sweet electric funk from Robin Kenyatta – but a set with some slightly complicated moments too! The album's a bit like some of Yusef Lateef's more electric moments on Atlantic, although probably not as cerebral overall – and Robin plays a range of reeds, including alto, flute, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vortex, 1968. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
One of the earliest albums as a leader from reedman Robin Kenyatta – and a set that's also one of his most compelling too! There's a definitely freer sound here than on some of Robin's smoother sets from the 70s – a vibe that's somewhere near the space of Impulse Records in the post-Col ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet sweet groover from Barney Kessel – his own hip take on the soundtrack for Hair – all those wonderful songs originally penned by the great Galt MacDermot!

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!

Nice Capitol album from the 50s, one that compiles instrumental sides by Nat King Cole and his tight little LA combo that forever changed the face of jazz and R&B.
