Lynn HopeTenderly (Imperial pressing) ... LP
Imperial, Early 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
A full LP that appears to collect earlier sides recorded by Hope – presumably for the Aladdin label, and all featuring that lusty tenor sound that was his trademark during the 50s.

New Freddie HubbardBacklash (Jazzlore) ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $5.99
One of Freddie Hubbard's greatest records – a soaring bit of soulful modernism that's almost a precursor to 70s sounds on record labels like Black Jazz or Strata East!

New Freddie HubbardOutpost ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99

A later album by Paul Humphrey, and with production that's a little bit rawer than some of his other 70's releases.

Pacific Jazz, 1961. Good+ ... $4.99
Sublime early soul jazz from the Jazz Crusaders – a seminal set that really has the group taking off right away!

Jazz CrusadersTalk That Talk ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
One of the coolest records the Jazz Crusaders ever cut! The album's got their usual hard soul jazz quintet sound augmented by a bigger band – strangely uncredited on the record, but giving the group a lofty sound that pushes them into a whole new sound!

Jazz CrusadersTough Talk (1963 – single LP) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Great early Crusaders stuff,and like many of their 60s sides, filled with memorable soul jazz that would become the template for a sound that would become the face of popular jazz for decades.

EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A cool little set from bassist Harry Babasin – a 50s album from his Jazz Pickers combo, a group who mostly handles stringed instruments picked, or plucked, in a very groovy way!

Jazz PickersJazz Pickers – For Moderns Only ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The "pickers" in the group's name refers to the way they play – tight and plucked, in the manner of some of the work of the Chico Hamilton quintet of the late 50s. No surprise, the group features Chico's reedman Buddy Collette on flute, and cellist Harry Babasin on cello (natch!) ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Owl (France), 1976. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Free-flowing and angular reed work from Francois Jeanneau – a fair bit more soulful than you might guess from the "techniques" in the title!

Harold JohnsonWide Open ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the few rare albums cut by this great LA-based soul jazz pianist!

Harold Johnson SextetHouse On Elm Street (Revue pressing) ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good ... $28.99
A killer album! The Harold Johnson Sextet were an incredible little LA soul jazz combo during the late 60s.

Pete JollySweet September ... LP
AVA, 1963. Very Good ... $16.99
Great work from one of the grooviest pianists of the 60s – a player who could always keep things lively and swinging, even in a small combo session!

New Carmell JonesRemarkable Carmell Jones ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good ... $34.99
Remarkable Carmell Jones, indeed – and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by this up-and-coming force on the LA scene at the start of the 60s! Jones was a player who really showcased something new on the west at the time – a move away from cool jazz, and the start of a deeper, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin JonesMidnight Walk ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $14.99
One of Elvin Jones' greatest records – a set that's quite different from both his work in the John Coltrane Quartet, and some of the powerhouse jazz sides he'd cut later as a solo act! The vibe here is a bit hard to describe, but it somehow comes together in the "midnight walk" of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin JonesPoly-Currents ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint- ... $12.99

Blue Note, 1969/1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
2LP set that brings together 2 different unreleased sessions recorded by Jones for Blue Note. The first session's from 1973, and features a fairly large group with the choppy fusion sound that Jones was hitting in the early 70s.

New Elvin Jones & McCoy TynerReunited (aka Love & Peace) ... LP
Blackhawk, 1982. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A surprisingly wonderful album from these two Coltrane bandmembers – reunited here in the early 80s, working in a mode that's very much in keeping with their rich spiritual jazz legacy! The group on the album's a quintet – with Pharoah Sanders on tenor, Richard Davis on bass, and Jean-P ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
