Bud PowellBud Powell '57 ... LP
Norgran, 1954/1955. Fair .... $14.99
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!

New Shirley ScottEverybody Loves A Lover ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
A simple formula, but one of Shirley's best records from the mid 60s, and a tight batch of quartet tracks that also features Stanley Turrentine on tenor.
