Oscar PetersonPastel Moods ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
We couldn't think of a better title for this one – as Oscar's in perfect form, crafting lightly shaded tones on the keys – and working with the guitar/bass drumless trio format that made his work so fluid in the 50s. The album's as seductive as its title and beautiful cover, and Oscar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MPS, 1968. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The first of a series of great "private" recordings that Oscar Peterson did for the MPS label in the late 60s – sessions done at the home of label owner Hans Georg Brunner Schwer, in a laidback and easygoing style that's different than some of his American work of the time! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PetersonRecital By Oscar Peterson ... LP
Clef, 1952/1954. Good+ ... $14.99
A great early example of the genius of mixing guitar with the piano of Oscar Peterson – a move that might have been inspired by the success of Ahmad Jamal, but which works equally well for Peterson's sound on the keys! The tracks here feature either Herb Ellis or Irving Ashby on guitar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson & Milt JacksonVery Tall ... LP
Verve, 1961. Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Milt Jackson joins the Oscar Peterson Trio – helping the group to hit some great new space with his magical work on vibes! Jackson's got an open, airy feel – an approach that almost lets Peterson punctuate the tunes a bit more with his piano – while the pair get strong rhythmic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PettifordNew Oscar Pettiford Sextet ... LP
Debut/OJC, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Although bassist Oscar Pettiford left a huge influence on jazz before his untimely death, there's not actually that many fantastic records in which he's featured as a leader. Fortunately, this is one of the few, and it's a sparkling set of modernist inflected bop tunes played by a group that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PettifordOscar Pettiford Orchestra In Hi Fi Volume 2 ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Pettiford's second album of big band tracks for ABC during the 50s – a more open-ended set than the previous one, with modernist touches that really make the set sparkle nicely. Part of these are due to Gigi Gryce, who plays alto on the record, and probably had a bit of a hand in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny PhillipsMy Black Flower ... LP
Muse, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Although Sonny Phillips was one of the funky organ players to record for Prestige during the classic jazz funk years, by the time of this recording, he'd emerged as a more spiritual talent, with a looser, freer approach, and a much more open-ended vibe. This 1976 session is a good example of that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willie PickensIt's About Time! ... LP
Southport, 1987. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The title's a reference to the fact that the album's a long-overdue debut as a leader for pianist Willie Pickens – a player who was important in the Chicago scene for years, but had never made it into the studio until the late 80s. The set's an odd one – in that it features a fair ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy PonderIllusions ... LP
Impulse, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet smooth album of funky jazz from guitarist Jimmy Ponder – with a style that's right out of the Bob James-arranged albums for Kudu!

Muse, 1989. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Surprisingly sweet grooves from guitarist Jimmy Ponder – one of the few from the jazz funk generation who kept on going strong into the 80s!

Jean Luc PontyIndividual Choice ... LP
Atlantic, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A nicely spare little set from Jean Luc Ponty – one that has him working on both keyboards and violin, sometimes with little else for accompaniment!

Delmark, 1962. Near Mint- (reissue)... $7.99
Bud plays in trio format in Copenhagen in 1962, working with Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and William Schiopffe on drums.

Bud PowellBud Powell '57 ... LP
Norgran, 1954/1955. Fair ... Just Sold Out!
The title says "57", but the music's from a few years before – yet that's OK with us, because Bud Powell always has a sound that's instantly timeless no matter what the year! The album brings together sides from Verve dates in 1954 and 1955 – one featuring Art Blakey on drums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A surprising Bud Powell album for Reprise Records – and one of the label's hippest jazz titles ever!

A nice, nice compilation of sides cut by Powell for Norman Granz, from 1949 to 1951.

A compelling "chamber opera" of sorts by Michel Puig – performed by a group of instrumentalists and vocalists led by Rene Leibowitz. The chamber tag is apt, as the peformance is very spare and intimate – and feels more like the kind of avant jazz of the late 60s European ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe RolandJoe Roland ... LP
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $28.99
A sweet little session with great mellow sound – and one of the few records ever cut by vibist Joe Roland! Once upon a time, we might have said Joe Roland a bit too soft for us – but this 1956 Bethlehem session has him playing in the company of a hip group that includes Freddie Redd on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove original pressing – in nice shape. Cover has one slightly bumped corner and some very light wear, but is still pretty great too.)

Sonny RollinsNight At The Village Vanguard ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the greatest Sonny Rollins records ever! The set is a legendary batch of trio tracks that feature Sonny working in a format that is incredibly free for the time, and which show him as more of a modernist than a bopper – although his solos are still pretty darn fantastic from a bop ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Mid 50s. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
A bit different than the usual Prestige Records two-fer of this type – as the collection brings together tracks from a variety of different sessions by Sonny Rollins – instead of just combining two full LPs!

New Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins' Next Album ... LP
Milestone, 1972. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked gem from Rollins – and a record that has him playing with a bit of an electric feel, in a style that's similar to some of Joe Henderson's early 70s Milestone sessions! Similar to Henderson's albums, George Cables plays a bit of electric piano on the set – grooving nicely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has masking tape on the seams, some wear, a sticker, some stains, and several ink stamps on the front and back.)

Sonny RollinsWhat's New? ... LP
RCA, 1962. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A very unique album from Sonny Rollins – one that features him blowing tenor over some Latin-based rhythms that have a tight uptempo feel.

Sonny Rollins & Coleman HawkinsSonny Meets Hawk! ... LP
RCA, 1963. Very Good+ ... $44.99
A startling meeting of two generations of tenor sax – recorded during one of Sonny Rollins' best periods on record, but featuring some even more amazing work from Coleman Hawkins!

Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A killer – and one of the greatest records ever cut on Bethlehem! Charlie Rouse and Paul Quinichette go head to head in a hard-blown session that's very different than most of the work on Bethlehem – grooving in a free-wheeling "chase" mode, as you might guess from the title ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roswell RuddFlexible Flyer ... LP
Arista, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A brilliant record – much more straight forward, and straight ahead, than much of Rudd's other work, which is why we like it so much! The album's an ingeniously subtle affair – with Rudd on trombone and French horn, working with a small group that features Sheila Jordan on vocals, Hod ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the last great albums that Rudd played on before going into retirement!

The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Harmony/Columbia, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
A fantastic album from one of the greatest arrangers of the 50s! Pete Rugolo first came into prominence with Stan Kenton's group of the late 40s/early 50s – and he had a penchant for creating arrangements that dipped heavily into modernism, but never forgot to swing.

One of Pete Rugolo's greatest albums – and some of his most groundbreaking work away from Stan Kenton!

Contemporary, 1955. Very Good- ... $14.99
