Jack McDuffHeatin' System ... LP
Cadet, 1972. Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
One of the most amazing, expansive albums ever recorded by Brother Jack McDuff – a session that we'd rank right up there with his classic Moon Rappin for Blue Note – and which has an equally stretched out feel! Although some of Jack's other albums for Cadet in the 70s have a bit more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear, with split top seams, and center split bottom seams. Vinyl plays with some light clicks and crackles.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jack McDuffHoneydripper ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $12.99
One of the records that put a young Brother Jack McDuff on the map – and a perfect example of the rougher R&B roots that first emerged in his early work on the Hammond! The session's got a much more down-n-dirty feel than some of McDuff's tighter 60s quartet work – and offers a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jack McDuffMagnetic Feel ... LP
Cadet, 1975. Very Good- ... $14.99
One of the great funky electronic records recorded by McDuff for Cadet! Includes some excellent groovers with a tight loping funk feel – like "Blue Monsoon", "A Long Goodie", and a nice cover of "Don't Mess With Mister T". Jack plays moog and Fender Rhodes, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jack McDuffMellow Gravy ... LP
Prestige, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
Mellow gravy is right! Brother Jack swings it nice and cool with help from Joe Dukes, Gene Ammons, and Harold Vick – using his patented two-tenor sound for a very full-on groove that makes this one of the best of his early 60s Prestige sessions. The tracks are all around the 5 to 7 minute ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Buzzin Round".)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jack McDuffScreamin' ... LP
Prestige, 1962. Very Good- ... $11.99
A real killer from Brother Jack McDuff – one of his first truly great albums, and a record that has him breaking from the sleepier R&B organ sound of the 50s – into the leaner, cleaner mode of the 60s! The album's one of the first to have him playing with the incredible drummer Joe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jack McDuffWho Knows What Tomorrow's Gonna Bring? ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Mindblowingly baroque funk from Brother Jack McDuff – an album that takes the initial Blue Note tripped-out groove of Moon Rappin, and pushes it to a whole new level! Jack's working here with arranger Ray Draper to come up with some tunes that are miles away from the earlier McDuff albums on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

Gary McFarlandGary McFarland Orchestra – Featuring Special Guest Bill Evans ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
Great early work from Gary McFarland – much more serious than some of his whimsical bossa sides, but also a stunning example of the depths of his talents! The group on the session isn't really an "orchestra" – just a combo with Gary on vibes, Bill Evans on piano, Jim Hall on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gary McFarlandIn Sound ... LP
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the grooviest albums of the 60s – a sublime blend of jazz, bossa, and easy – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The album's probably the most perfect realization of the unique groove that Gary McFarland was going for back in the day – a mix of vibes, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gary McFarlandSoft Samba ... LP
Verve, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
A dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Gary McFarland & Clark TerryTijuana Jazz ... LP
Impulse, Mid 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $22.99

Gary McFarland & Peter SmithButterscotch Rum ... LP
Buddah, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
Very cool stuff – and a very strange record for Gary McFarland! The album features tracks that are a lot more vocal-oriented than his earlier work – but the same great sense of wild arrangements and strange subtle genius is still firmly in place. McFarland, as much as any ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gary McFarland/Grady Tate/Bobby ScottSlaves ... LP
Skye, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
An unusual little soundtrack to this obscure pre-Roots film about slavery – handled with some very nice touches from Gary McFarland, Bobby Scott, and Grady Tate!

Jimmy McGriffElectric Funk ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $49.99
One of Jimmy's funkiest albums ever – a sweeeeet batch of short, hard, and funky cuts – and a record that ranks right up there with the mighty Soul Sugar for sheer funkiness!

Jimmy McGriffLet's Stay Together ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1972. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An early 70s gem from Jimmy McGriff! Jimmy's grooving with a larger group here – but in a funky 70s mode that makes for a great update of the rawer sound he laid out on some of his Sue sides in the 60s. The best tracks are the covers of 70s soul material – like "Shaft", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jimmy McGriffMean Machine ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
Sweet 70s electric work from Jimmy McGriff – material that's different than his grittier grooves of the 60s, but still plenty darn great!

New Jimmy McGriffSoul Sugar ... LP
Capitol, 1971. Good+ ... $12.99
A fantastic album, and one of Jimmy's hardest to find! The set is quite different than most of Jimmy's other work – and it features short, hard, funky tracks that feel more like obscure 7" singles than any of Jimmy's straighter soul jazz work. It almost sounds like The JBs are backing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy McGriffThing To Come By ... LP
Solid State, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $13.99
A real solid groover, and one that we passed up for many years, mistakenly, because the cover looks kind of boring!

Jimmy McGriffWay You Look Tonight ... LP
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
Damn, Jimmy's always great! Even in a session like this – the kind of obscure, almost "off the books" sort of album, Jimmy's still giving 110% on the Hammond – grooving with an unnamed group in a mode that recalls the fiercely swinging sound of Groove Holmes at his best in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good ... $24.99

The album's got some key rhythmic elements that come both from the drumming of Billy Higgins and piano of Cedar Walton – both players who bring ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hank MobleyPeckin' Time ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the first great pairings of Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan – a trumpet/tenor team that was always a treasure, no matter what the setting! This one's a pretty open-ended blowing date – one that gives both horn players plenty of room to stretch out, in a setting that's filled with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
An excellent Hank Mobley session – with an unusual twist that takes it past his earlier work! The lineup's great all the way through – with Woody Shaw on trumpet, George Benson on guitar, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the addition of Benson's guitar gives the tracks a groovily ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Criteria/World Record Club (UK), 1960. Very Good+ ... $13.99
An incredible record from a very unlikely source – the Miami scene of the early 60s, home to some vastly under-recognized players! The genius here is arranger Don Vincent – who put together this beautiful batch of larger group tunes with a flair that easily rivals the best LA work of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetConcert In Japan Vol 2 ... LP
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An excellent Japanese performance from the Modern Jazz Quartet – and a set that was issued in a bit of a lull during their 60s American years for Atlantic Records – which makes it even more important as a key part of their catalog at the time! The 1966 date has the combo in fine form ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Even at this early point in their career, the Modern Jazz Quartet were plenty proud of their relation to and reception in Paris – almost rubbing their international fame in the faces of other American combos with the title and cover of this record! The set's still got the quartet at their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good ... $49.99
Ah, the genius of the early Modern Jazz Quartet – summed up perfectly in two words: Kenny Clarke! At this early point in the group's history, Kenny was in the quartet on drums – and his magic touch on the kit makes for a style that's a bit harder, and a bit more swinging than some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint- ... $4.99
More material from the famous Last Concert record from the MJQ – not really the last concert ever from the Modern Jazz Quartet – but a set that seemed so at the time, given that the group went their separate ways for a number of years!

Apple, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
Beautifully spacey work from the Modern Jazz Quartet – a record that more than earns its enigmatic title!

Nice stuff from the early days of the MJQ – recorded back when Kenny Clarke was still playing drums with the group, and giving them a bit more of a bottom!

A prime Argo gem from James Moody – and key proof that when he wanted to, he could be one of the hippest cats working in 60s jazz!
