New Johnny SmithKaleidoscope ... LP
Verve, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $14.99
One of the grooviest records we've ever heard from guitarist Johnny Smith – a sweet batch of mellow tunes, played with some warm chromatic touches!

Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
Lonnie Liston Smith is really tightening up his groove on this one – bringing a bit more funk into the mix, and creating that amazingly sweet glide in his keyboard sound!

Jeremy SteigLegwork ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold .... $14.99
Funky flute work from the great Jeremy Steig! The album's one of his best-ever – and it features the growling "Howling For Judy", a non-stop modal flute number that's been sampled to great fame by the Beastie Boys, and which you'll recognize immediately from the breathy rumbling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jeremy SteigTemple Of Birth ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+ .... $19.99
A little bit later than his classic funky stuff, but still a very nice batch of grooves with Jeremy's hard flute sound out front, and good backing by a small group that includes Alphonze Mouzon on drums and Richie Beirach on electric piano.

New Jeremy SteigWayfaring Stranger ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold .... $9.99
A mindblower from flute man Jeremy Steig – his only album ever for Blue Note – and quite possibly his best!

Sonny StittChamp ... LP
Muse, 1974. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
An excellent bop side that finds Stitt and his sidemen still at the top of their game, despite the fact that the date was rather late in many of their careers. While others were exploring electric jazz, Stitt, Joe Newman, Duke Jordan, Sam Jones and Roy Brooks, lay out six sides of crisp hard bop: ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittNew York Jazz ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good .... $9.99
Sonny Stitt's work for Verve was some of his best on record – and this album is a perfect illustration of that bold claim!

Sonny StittNight Letter ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good .... $6.99
A great set of Varitone sax numbers from Sonny Stitt – recorded for Prestige with a bit more bite than some of his albums of the type for Roulette!

Cool duets between Czech reedman Jiri Stivin and guitarist Rudolf Dasek – a set with a lot fuller feel than you might expect!

New Gabor SzaboGabor Szabo Live With Charles Lloyd ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1974. Very Good+ .... $3.99
A nice little record by Gabor – one that reproduces the kind of groove he was hitting on his classic Impulse albums, a mix of tripped-out modal jazz with exotic influences, and more than a bit of soul.

This is the great Blue Note two-fer from the 70's that combines two rare Cecil Taylor albums from the 50's – one recorded for the Transition label, one for United Artists.

Clark TerryColor Changes ... LP
Candid, 1960. Very Good .... $6.99
An excellent little album that's also one of Clark Terry's hippest! The set was recorded as part of the monumental Candid catalog in the early 60s – and it's got an edgey quality that we don't normally hear in Terry's work. At some level, he's working in a mode picked up from his time with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MPS (Germany), 1967. Very Good Gatefold .... $2.99
Perhaps the most perfectly realized MPS session by jazz accordionist Art Van Damme! Van Damme's lovely melodic sound is set up nicely with a small combo that includes Fred Rundquist on guitar, Heribert Thusek on vibes, and the great MPS rhythm team of Peter Witte bass and Charly Antolini drums. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Leroy VinnegarJazz's Great Walker ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $19.99
A wickedly soulful session from bassist Leroy Vinnegar – one that carries the same "walker" theme used in the titles of his Contemporary albums, but one that comes across with an even groovier feel overall! Vinnegar's definitely walking some great lines on his bass – a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Leroy VinnegarLeroy Walks Again! ... LP
Contemporary, 1963. Very Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
Although it's easy to get mixed up with all the Leroy Vinnegar albums that have "walk" in the title, this one's a great soul jazz session from the early 60s – one that nicely draws upon an LA scene that includes Roy Ayers, Freddie Hill, Teddy Edwards, Mike Melvoin, and Ron Jefferson ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

George WallingtonGeorge Wallington With Strings ... LP
Norgran, Early 50s. Very Good .... $48.99
One of the rarest albums ever from George Wallington – and that's saying a lot, given the obscurity of some of his sessions! This unusual set has George mostly working in a drum-less group with cool use of strings – just a bit of violin, viola, and cello – but in ways that color ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Norgran pressing. Vinyl is nice and clean, with some light marks – but has a very light, subtle warp. Played fine for us, and the whole thing is nice and heavy – but the price reflects that warp. Cover has light wear and a small sticker.)

Dexter WanselLife On Mars ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good .... $24.99
A fantastic bit of space age funk – and maybe one of the greatest moments ever from Philly Soul maestro Dexter Wansel! The album goes way beyond any of Wansel's other work – and blends his warm soulful styles with some of the more keyboard-oriented funk that was coming out of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kudu, 1975. Very Good .... $4.99
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever!

Elektra, 1979. Very Good+ .... $2.99
One of those records you see so much it's easy to forget how great it is! Grover's a real genius with the sax on this record – taking a "less is more" cue from Stanley Turrentine's 70s work, and toning down his playing to an even tighter style than on the Kudu albums of earlier ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
