Joe HoustonKicking Back ... LP
Big Town, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Funk LP recorded by 50s tenor legend Joe Houston for the obscure Big Town label. The lineup and production's got a number of 50s LA R&B names in it, like Ted Butler, Bo Rhambo and LarryJohnson, but the sound's very modern 70s jazz. The highlight is the long two-part title track, "Kicking ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $11.99
A totally fantastic set from the turn of the 70s, and one of Freddie Hubbard's most soulful, spiritual albums ever – a seminal chapter in the evolution of soul jazz – and a record that was a keen inspiration for changes to come on labels like Strata East and Black Jazz!

Freddie HubbardHigh Blues Pressure ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good ... $7.99
A real gem from Freddie Hubbard's 60s years – an all soul jazz outing, cut with a hip array of players that show that young Fred was definitely on the forefront of jazz at the time!

Freddie HubbardNight Of The Cookers Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good ... $19.99

Freddie Hubbard's definitely rolling on this great little set – rolling right back into acoustic jazz territory after a run of smoother soul sessions for bigger labels at the end of the 70s!

Freddie HubbardSing Me A Song Of Songmy ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Good Gatefold ... $2.99
One of Freddie Hubbard's wildest records ever – a really unique experiment with electronics, and a set that sounds way different than his other albums for Atlantic, Blue Note, or CTI!

CTI, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
A killer set from Freddie Hubbard's legendary years on CTI! Like the classic Red Clay album, there's 4 tunes here, all longer cuts – where everyone gets a chance to stretch out a bit, over smooth (but not too smooth!) electric grooves, supported by great orchestrations from Don Sebesky!

Daniel HumairTriple Hip Trip ... LP
Owl (France), 1979. Near Mint- ... $24.99
They certainly got the "hip" in this one right, because the album's one of Daniel Humair's greatest sessions – a real stunner from the end of the 70s, recorded in trio formation with vibes by David Friedman!

New Bobbi HumphreyFlute-In ... LP
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
Early Blue Note work from the legendary Bobbi Humphrey – a session cut before she hooked up with producer Larry Mizell, but one that's still got a righteously soulful vibe!

An oft-overlooked gem from 70s Blue Note – and a great little record that's especially nice for the Bobby Hutcherson material!

Klaus Ignatzek always makes some pretty hip records, but this set may well be hipper than most – given that he's got the great Bobby Watson in his group!

Keyboardist Masaru Imada in a really great setting – working alongside a tight trombone lineup with a really bold sound!

Milt JacksonBorn Free ... LP
Limelight, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of Milt Jackson's best albums from the 60s – and one we love because it's got a lot more of a soul jazz feel than others!

A surprisingly nice pairing – the vibes of Milt Jackson and some larger horn backings that fall heavy on the trumpet and trombone side of the spectrum!

Prestige, Early 60s. Good ... $4.99
Well, Jackson's anything but "cool" as a player – and this album sets his hard wailing tenor in great company with Brother Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar.

A crucial album for Jamal – one in which he's really working in the "extensions" mode promised in the title!
