Harold LandFox (Hi Fi pressing) ... LP
Hi Fi, 1960. Very Good ... $44.99
A key moment in the west coast harbop scene – and one of the greatest early records from saxophonist Harold Land! The group's a really striking one – with the unique Dupree Bolton on trumpet, a great player that we really only know from this set – plus Herbie Lewis on bass, Frank ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Harold LandJazz Impressions Of Folk Music ... LP
Imperial, Early 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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. Despite what might seem like a cheap gimmick, the set actually sounds great – grooving with a soulful swing, in that LA underground mode that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Adam Lane/Darius Jones/Vijay AndersonAbsolute Horizon ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Adam Lane's bass is superb here – really shaping the sound in a sublime way right from the start – brooding and bold up from the bottom – never too heavy-handed, but a force that directs the recording beautifully, and really gives shape to the alto of Darius Jones and drums of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

World Pacific, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $12.99
One of the greatest records ever cut by organist Billy Larkin – a lean, mean batch of soul jazz instrumentals, recorded with the Delegates combo, featuring tenor work by a young Fats Theus!

New Yusef LateefAutophysiopsychic ... LP
CTI, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
A strange bit of funk from Yusef Lateef! The record was recorded late in the CTI electric years – and it's got Yusef fronting a funky jazz group on 5 tracks that have a decidely R&B-ish fusion twist.

Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99

Impulse, 1964/1976. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the greatest albums ever from Yusef Lateef – even if it's sometimes overlooked!

One of Yusef Lateef's most fantastic records, and an album that grooves in a way that few of his other ones do.

Malcolm X College Jazz EnsembleLive – Collegiate Jazz Festival ... LP
Malcolm X, 1972. Very Good ... $22.99
An excellent obscure album of young, undiscovered and lesser-known Chicago jazz players from the early 70s – like Charles Williamson, Sonny Seals, Tyrone Taylor, and Jodie Christian – all of whom play very nicely, and lay down some hard funky big band stuff. There's 4 nice extended ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Junior ManceI Believe To My Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1966/1967. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of the richest albums that Junior Mance ever cut for Atlantic Records – a smoking soul jazz set that seems to have a bit of a gospel influence too – at least in the deep, soulful bottom that comes from the feel of the group! Junior's piano is right on the money – as sharp and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Harvey MandelBaby Batter ... LP
Janus, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A classic bit of funky guitar by Harvey Mandel – similar to some of Dennis Coffey's early work in that it's got full on guitar power, very much inspired by heavy rock, filtered through an approach that's also got plenty of funk in it! The killer track here is the classic "Baby ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannBeat Goes On ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good- ... $1.99
The beat goes on, and Herbie Mann gets plenty darn groovy – serving up these short, soulful tunes that really pack a sweet little punch – thanks in part to some excellent work on vibes by the young Roy Ayers! Ayers' rings out next to Herbie's flute in a very cool way – almost ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannBrazil, Bossa Nova, & Blues ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Very Good ... $5.99
Bossa nova from Herbie Mann – one of our favorite albums ever from the famous flute player – cut for United Artists, and a one-off session that's arguably better than most of his Atlantic work of the time! There's a groove here that's undeniable – a sense of swing that grabs us ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannDo The Bossa Nova With Herbie Mann ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good ... $9.99
A great album of bossa groovers, recorded by Herbie in the early days of the US bossa boom – and with a sound that's right on the money! The backing's very lively, and the tracks have a tight bossa sound that's quite authentic. Herbie's flute is livelier than usual, and on a set like this, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannHerbie Mann Live At Newport ... LP
Atlantic, 1963. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the grooviest 60s live albums from Herbie Mann – done in a style that's a bit different from the rest! Herbie cut many successful live albums for Atlantic, most of them with a hard wailing soul jazz groove – but this one's a nice batch of mellower bossa tunes, played at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannMann In The Morning ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Different work than usual for Herbie – a series of sides recorded in Sweden in the late 50s, featuring Herbie on both flute and tenor! The feel here is at once more poised and more open than some of Herbie's US sides from the time – as the groups shift from track to track, and Herbie's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannSultry Serenade ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good- ... $14.99
An early record by Herbie Mann, and one that offers a nice treat – bass clarinet! Although Herbie made his fame in the 60s with his Latiny flute playing, he was also a darn good bass clarinetist, and he plays both instruments on this rare early session from 1957. The bass clarinet doesn't ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Herbie Mann's opening plenty of windows with this one – and plenty of doors too – really letting some new influences come to his music, thanks to the presence of Sonny Sharrock on guitar and Roy Ayers on vibes!

Mode, 1957. Very Good- ... $9.99
An excellent little album from the team of Herbie Mann & Buddy Collette – one that has both players using a wide range of reed instruments, and not just flute!

Herbie Mann & The Afro-Jazz Sextet + Four TrumpetsCommon Ground ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great little record, filled with loads of cross-cultural influences that make for one of the most exotic Herbie Mann albums of the 60s! The group's billed as the Afro-Jazz Sextet– but has a strong Latin vibe as well – a bit of an echo of the experiments Herbie Mann did with Latin ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists/Solid State, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
A confusing title, but a wonderful little record! The album's as much a Herbie Mann Latin session as it is a record by Johnny Rae – which is probably why the album's titled as such – and the group on the set features Rae on vibes, Herbie on flute, Jack Six on bass, Philly Joe Jones on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann with MachitoAfro-Jazziac ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great little LP – even if it is a discographer's nightmare! The record was most likely recorded originally under Machito's name, and only featured Mann as a soloist – but it's not the album Kenya, so we're not sure which one it is, although it does look like a repackaging job ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $5.99
Shelly picks up on a very successful format for his trio of the late 50s – begun with the My Fair Lady album, and followed through with this one – a batch of jazz-based readings of tracks from the hit Broadway musical based on the comic strip Lil Abner.

Shelly ManneSwinging Sounds – Shelly Manne & His Men Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good- ... $9.99
Charlie Mariano was one of the best things to ever happen to Shelly Manne – as the young altoist's icy talent was a perfect match for Manne's west coast cool, but his Boston soul really added a lot more emotional depth than had ever been previously recorded on some of Manne's sessions. This ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Revelation, 1959/1977. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Very strange record that's made up of excerpts of Marsh's solos from a live set recorded by Peter Ind at the Half Note. Ind somehow felt that Marsh's solos were the only thing worth saving from a huge set of tapes that he made of the show, so he edited down the tapes to these 2 minute segments, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
