Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Although Teo Macero is probably best known as Columbia's jazz producer during their successful early 60s run with Miles, he's also quite a composer in his own right, as you'll hear on this striking set of sides from the late 50s!

A great second album from Mahavishnu Orchestra – one that has them still very might in the same tight formation as the first!

Better than you might think – and a nice set of flute-oriented hardbop that has Herbie Mann playing next to Belgian flautist Bobby Jaspar!

Riverside, 1957. Very Good- ... $19.99
An early record by Herbie Mann, and one that offers a nice treat – bass clarinet!

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!

Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great little LP – even if it is a discographer's nightmare!

Contemporary, 1956. Very Good- ... $11.99
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.
