A crucial album for the jazz guitar in the 80s – the debut effort of Stanley Jordan, and a set that exploded with a very fresh sound!

New Fred KatzFolk Songs For Far Out Folk ... LP
Warner, 1958. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A lost chapter in the career of cellist Fred Katz – an album recorded after his small combo work with Chico Hamilton, and sort of a larger group take on the whimsical sound of the classic Hamilton Quintet!

London, 1965. Very Good ... $4.99
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.

Johnny KeatingEnglish Jazz ... LP
Bally, 1956. Very Good ... $9.99
Some of the earliest work as a leader from the swinging Johnny Keating – one of England's finest jazz arrangers of the 50s, working here in a looser style than on his classic Keating Sound albums from the 60s!

A surprisingly nice record – and one of Roger Kellaway's best straight jazz sessions of the 60s!
