Flying Dutchman, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $19.99
George Russell's stepping quite far out from his earlier work here – recording in Scandinavia in the late 60s, with some very trippy effects!

Joe SampleCarmel ... LP
ABC, 1979. Sealed .... $6.99
God, we love this record – and we're not ashamed to admit it! Sure, it sold a gazillion copies – and sure, for some folks it showed the true demise of the Crusaders ensemble.

Lalo SchifrinIns & Outs ... LP
PAJ, 1982. Near Mint- .... $7.99
A great return to form for Lalo Schifrin – and a straight album of jazz tunes, recorded after years of late 70s disco work!

Lalo SchifrinNo One Home ... LP
Tabu, 1979. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
A sweet set of fusiony soul from Lalo Schifrin – actually better than most of his other late 70s efforts, including some of his soundtrack work! The album's in the same territory that Quincy Jones was hitting at the time – at its core, a set of funky electric jazz – but done with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A real hard burner, and one of the few albums issued under the name of Clifford Scott – the legendary Texas tenorman who rose to fame in the Bill Doggett combo! The style here is very much in the Doggett mode – short, romping tunes that mix together equal parts jazz and R&B – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley ScottSuperstition ... LP
Cadet, 1973. Very Good+ .... $28.99
One of the coolest, grooviest albums ever from Hammond giant Shirley Scott – a set that's got a fair bit of funk in the mix, and a really rich array of inventive lines on the keyboards too!

Sessom, 1985. Very Good+ .... $5.99
Chicago reed player Ed Wilkerson (also known as the leader of 8 Bold Souls, and a member of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble) formed this group in the 80's as sort of a mixed large band of Chicago avant garde players, but with more of a focus on tighter swingin' sounds.

Crown, Late 50s. Very Good .... $8.99
Sublime early work from Bud Shank – one of our favorite west coast players ever – captured here away from some of his better-known work on Pacific Jazz!

Bud ShankI'll Take Romance ... LP
World Pacific, 1958. Very Good .... $14.99

A brilliant little album from Archie Shepp – material recorded on a variety of dates at the end of the 60s, but packaged together as an extremely soulful set in the mid 70s!

Supraphon (Czechoslovakia), 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $19.99
Amazing early work from SHQ – who are billed on the cover as the Sh/Jazz Quintet – and are playing with a straighter vibe than on some of their later avant sides, but a groove that's pretty darn great overall!

Excellent 50s work from pianist Billy Taylor – a record that has him stepping out with even more command of the keys than his earlier sides for Prestige and Roost!

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.

A great album – much better than the usual Terry outing, as he's playing here with a hip group of European players that includes some obscurer talents that later went onto do some very tasty funk.

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

Groove Merchant, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $4.99
The cover's a bit righteous, but the grooves are wonderfully smooth – that shift towards warmer, club-based styles that Joe Thomas took in the 70s – an approach that comes off surprisingly well!

A Fuego Vivo is a live septet set with the latin vibes master out front of Mark Levine on keys, the great percussionist Panco Sanchez on congas, and Gary Foster on alto and flute.

Fantasy, Early 60s. Near Mint- .... Just Sold Out!
A nice album of lyrical groovers by this master vibist – played with more of a jazz feel than Cal's 60's Latin sessions – and it's based around a nice set of original tracks dedicated to San Francisco.
