Harold JohnsonWide Open ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the few rare albums cut by this great LA-based soul jazz pianist! Harold's first two featured his highly percussive sextet, but this one's got Harold solo as the leader, with backing by a group that includes Woody "Fats" Theus on conga, and Daniel Ramos on guitar.

New Harold Johnson SextetHouse On Elm Street (Revue pressing) ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A killer album! The Harold Johnson Sextet were an incredible little LA soul jazz combo during the late 60s. Johnson was a very soulful pianist, and he had a heavy soul style that was similar to Ramsey Lewis' Cadet work – but which was also tinged with the lyricism of Horace Silver, and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

JJ JohnsonGoodies ... LP
RCA, 1965. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the lesser-known JJ Johnson albums of the mid 60s – and nice little session that's done with a fresh sort of style!

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
One of JJ's nicer-grooving albums for Columbia from the 50s – recorded without Kai Winding, and with a quartet that includes Bobby Jaspar on tenor, either Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones on piano, Percy Heath or Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Tracks are short, with a sharp-edge ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Rudolph JohnsonSpring Rain ... LP
Black Jazz, 1971. Near Mint- ... $59.99
One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Rudolph Johnson – a hell of a saxophonist, and one with a great ability to combine the spiritual with the searing – a bit like Joe Farrell at his CTI best, but not as freewheeling – nicely focused, and a little bit funky in all the right ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pete Jolly & His TrioHello, Jolly! ... LP
AVA, 1964. Sealed ... $2.99
Not the Hello Dolly album you might guess from the title, but instead a wonderfully groovy batch of tracks from pianist Pete Jolly – an album done with great larger arrangements from Dick Hazard and Dick Grove, and a tight vibe that makes the set one of Pete's grooviest albums ever!

New Boogaloo Joe JonesWhat It Is ... LP
Prestige, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $39.99
Killer funkiness from Boogaloo Joe Jones!

New 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

Philly Joe JonesBlues For Dracula ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99

Philly Joe JonesDrum Song ... LP
Galaxy/Milestone, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Not as full on and bombastic as some of Philly Joe Jones heavy thunder recordings from the late 50s – but two nice albums recorded during one set of sessions for Galaxy Records at the end of the 70s! The quality of the material here is high – as Jones is working here with sidemen that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1961. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A stunner of an album – and one that definitely draws plenty power from the double drummers in the lead!

New Quincy JonesGolden Boy ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good ... $4.99
A sweet bridge between Quincy's big band recordings and his groovier soundtrack work of the mid 60s – as the record combines straight jazzy grooving with some of the cooler elements of Quincy's soundtrack scores, like stepping strings, wordless voices, and a breathy mellow groove that floats ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
