Pete RugoloIntroducing ... LP
Columbia, Mid 50s. Very Good .... $3.99
One of the records that arranger Pete Rugolo cut for Columbia in the years after he parted company with Stan Kenton. As most modern jazz ears will know, Rugolo was one of the main reasons for Kenton's uniquely swinging approach in the early 50s – and he also lent his talents to some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ .... $9.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often.

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Patrice RushenShout It Out ... LP
Prestige, 1977. Very Good .... $6.99
A pivotal record for Patrice Rushen – a set that has her really tightening things up from her previous Prestige albums – heading much more towards the focused soul-drenched grooves of her Elektra Records years!

George RussellOthello Ballet Suite/Electronic Organ Sonata No 1 ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $19.99

Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover!

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 SchifrinDissection & Reconstruction Of Music – Marquis De Sade ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
The Marquis De Sade never sounded so sweet! For some strange reason, Schifrin decided to pay a musical hommage to De Sade with this one – but fortunately, he's not punishing himself with the subject matter at all, and is sticking to his jazzy bossa guns. The arrangements have a tight Verve ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinNo One Home ... LP
Tabu, 1979. Very Good .... $4.99
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!

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!

New Shirley ScottEverybody Loves A Lover ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold .... $2.99
A simple formula, but one of Shirley's best records from the mid 60s, and a tight batch of quartet tracks that also features Stanley Turrentine on tenor.

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.

Jeremy SteigLegwork ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold .... $14.99
Funky flute work from the great Jeremy Steig! The album's one of his best-ever – and it features the growling "Howling For Judy", a non-stop modal flute number that's been sampled to great fame by the Beastie Boys, and which you'll recognize immediately from the breathy rumbling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jeremy SteigTemple Of Birth ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+ .... $19.99
A little bit later than his classic funky stuff, but still a very nice batch of grooves with Jeremy's hard flute sound out front, and good backing by a small group that includes Alphonze Mouzon on drums and Richie Beirach on electric piano.

Jeremy SteigThis Is Jeremy Steig ... LP
Solid State, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $9.99
Pure greatness from Jeremy Steig – an album of funky flute tracks that really opened up whole new possibilities for the instrument! Steig was probably working in equal parts jazz and rock at the time of the date – but definitely moves into a funky jazz mode for the session – one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittChamp ... LP
Muse, 1974. Very Good .... $1.99
An excellent bop side that finds Stitt and his sidemen still at the top of their game, despite the fact that the date was rather late in many of their careers. While others were exploring electric jazz, Stitt, Joe Newman, Duke Jordan, Sam Jones and Roy Brooks, lay out six sides of crisp hard bop: ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittNew York Jazz ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good .... $9.99
Sonny Stitt's work for Verve was some of his best on record – and this album is a perfect illustration of that bold claim! Sonny's blowing here in a wonderful style – a bit more restrained than on his early bop sides, more complicated than on his later soul jazz sessions, and all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittNight Letter ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good .... $6.99
A great set of Varitone sax numbers from Sonny Stitt – recorded for Prestige with a bit more bite than some of his albums of the type for Roulette! The album's got a tight tenor/organ vibe throughout – thanks to work on Hammond from Gene Ludwig, working under the "nom de date" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jiri Stivin & Rudolf DasekTandem ... LP
Supraphon (Czechoslovakia), 1975. Very Good+ .... $2.99
Cool duets between Czech reedman Jiri Stivin and guitarist Rudolf Dasek – a set with a lot fuller feel than you might expect! The work is straight, and never too outside – and although there's no drums or bass in the performance, there's an inherently rhythmic sensibility to most ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gabor SzaboBacchanal ... LP
Skye, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $8.99
A wonderful album from Gabor Szabo – one with the same freely grooving, slightly-psychedelic sound that he was using on his best records for the Impulse label! Two guitars head up the quintet – those of Gabor and Jim Stewart – and they trade breezy lines throughout, grooving over ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freewheeling Cecil – in his best 70s mode – recorded live in Austria in 1976, playing beautifully on a Bosendorfer Grand piano!

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.

Polydor, 1969. Very Good+ .... $3.99
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. Players include Dave Pike on vibes, Louis Stewart on guitar, Eero Koivistoinen on alto, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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
