Quincy JonesQuincy's Got A Brand New Bag ... LP
Mercury, 1965. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A very groovy set of short jazzy numbers from Quincy – a consummate expression of all the work he'd forged in the 60s on soundtracks and other jazz sides for Mercury! The album features Quincy working through a lot of soul numbers – jamming on them instrumentally with players that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesYou've Got It Bad Girl ... LP
A&M, 1973. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Sweet funky Q for the 70s – easily one of the coolest albums ever from Quincy Jones! The album's got a very heavy electric vibe – one that's kind of a laidback take on the styles that Jones was forging in some of his 70s soundtrack work – served up with massive work on the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Thad Jones & Mel LewisConsummation ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
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! The Jones/Lewis group could sometimes sound a bit clunky and overhashed – but on this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel LewisPresenting Thad Jones, Mel Lewis & The Jazz Orchestra (original cover) ... LP
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! Trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis had already made some great music together on their own – but once they came together in a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis with Ruth BrownThe Big Band Sound Of Thad Jones & Mel Lewis Featuring Miss Ruth Brown ... LP
Solid State, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
Ruth Brown joins the big band of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – in a set that's a real standout in the career of all three artists!

Clifford JordanAdventurer ... LP
Muse, 1978. Very Good ... $7.99
A gem of a record from Clifford Jordan – proof that the 70s were possibly the greatest decade for his music! Although most of Jordan's contemporaries from the big tenor days of the 50s really didn't grow much during the 70s, Clifford always continued to develop his style – adding in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Clifford JordanRemembering Me Me ... LP
Muse, 1977. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Pretty darn hip stuff from Clifford – in that righteous soul jazz mode that he was using at Strata East, although perhaps a bit less focused than on those records. The record's actually got vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a kind of hip Bill Lee sort of approach, singing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Duke JordanBlue Duke ... LP
Baystate (Japan), 1983. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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. The contrast is a nice one – as Duke's got full room to move on the keys, with only minor support from the younger bass ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shake KeaneBig Fat Horn Of Shake Keane (aka Shake Keane With The Keating Sound) ... LP
London, 1965. Very Good ... $2.99
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. Still, the record's not a bad batch of pop jazz tunes – with Keane's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny KeatingEnglish Jazz ... LP
Bally, 1956. Very Good ... $6.99
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! The groove here is more small combo swinging – and Keating's working with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Regina, 1964. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A surprisingly nice record – and one of Roger Kellaway's best straight jazz sessions of the 60s! The set's a gently grooving one, featuring many original compositions by Kellaway – played in a playful and freewheeling style that's a lot better than we would have imagined. Roger's a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wynton KellyIt's All Right! ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $21.99
A tight little groover from Wynton Kelly – one of a few mid 60s gems done for Verve in a style that's harder-hitting and more focused than some of Kelly's other work! The record's got an approach that's a bit pop, but plenty darn soulful too – a style that focuses the already-great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wynton KellyKelly Blue ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good+ ... $11.99

The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1956. Very Good ... $12.99
One of Kenton's greatest records, and the one in which he proves his dedication to Latin styles, by serving up a killer batch of Afro-Cuban tracks with an incredibly authentic feel.

Robin KenyattaEncourage The People ... LP
Wolf, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Post-Atlantic work from Robin Kenyatta – but an album that follows in a very similar mode! This date was done for the Wolf subsidiary of TK Records, but it's got a very hip New York groove – one that's almost even more righteous than some of Robin's earlier work, with some excellent ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vortex, 1968. Sealed ... $28.99
One of the earliest albums as a leader from reedman Robin Kenyatta – and a set that's also one of his most compelling too!

Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Carmen ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An odd choice for material, but a surprisingly nice record – and just the kind of session needed to break Barney Kessel out of some of his too-familiar trio modes of the 50s!

Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A sweet sweet groover from Barney Kessel – his own hip take on the soundtrack for Hair – all those wonderful songs originally penned by the great Galt MacDermot!

An obscure session on the Charlie Parker label – and a nicely laidback session that features a hip west coast group!

Prestige, 1961. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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!

A hip little album from pianist Paul Knopf – a player we don't know at all, but who really sounds wonderful here!
