Thad Jones & Mel LewisConsummation ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
One of the greatest records ever cut by the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra – way way more than a big band jazz session, and a fantastically hip batch of grooves that encompasses a wealth of styles!

Solid State, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
One of the hippest large American ensembles of the late 60s – almost a US equivalent to the groovy sound of the Clark Boland Big Band over in Europe!

A landmark session that features two of the greatest tenor talents to emerge from the rich Chicago scene of the 50s!

Duke JordanBlue Duke ... LP
Baystate (Japan), 1983. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A later session from Duke Jordan – recorded during his years on the European scene, with a style that's gentler and more introspective than his earlier American work.

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!

A strange and tasty little album that Roland Kirk made with organist Jack McDuff in the early 60s – one of his few outings in such a format, and a smoking little session that almost makes us wish he'd cut more of them!

Imperial, Early 60s. Very Good ... $12.99
A great record – and one of Land's most obscure sessions – part of a short-lived early 60s attempt to make jazz cash in on the folk boom.

Billy Larkin & The DelegatesPigmy ... LP
Aura, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $7.99
Killer stuff! This is one of Billy's earliest albums, and it's a monster batch of funky organ tunes with a much harder groove than on later works!

Impulse, Mid 60s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
Although often lost to the sands of time because of the small pressing/small reissue history of the sides cut for the label, Yusef Lateef's work for Impulse was certainly some of his strongest of the 60s, and it showed him moving way past the spacey mysticism of earlier albums, into a tighter vein ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
