Barney Kessel & Harold LandEl Tigre ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $33.99
An obscure session on the Charlie Parker label – and a nicely laidback session that features a hip west coast group! We're not entirely sure when the set was recorded, but the feel here is very much in that late 50s Contemporary Records style – traces of LA cool jazz, but played with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1960. Good+ ... $5.99

Contemporary, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
A nice follow-up to the original Poll Winners set on Contemporary – one that features the trio of Barney Kessel, Shelly Manne, and Ray Brown – all working in a relatively relaxed setting, and hitting a vibe that's a bit more easygoing than you'd expect to catch for Contemporary at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Some of the coolest, hippest albums Roland Kirk ever recorded – Slightly Latin, Now Please Don't You Cry Beautiful Edith, I Talk With The Spirits, and Rip Rig & Panic – each very different in their own way, and a key part of his great leap forward in the 60s! The box features four ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roland KirkHere Comes The Whistleman ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good ... $16.99
A stone classic from Roland Kirk – and a record that beautifully balances his modern ideas and playful energy – as you might guess from the title!

New Roland KirkI Talk With The Spirits (gatefold pressing) ... LP
Limelight, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
One of Roland Kirk's moodiest albums – and a record that really helped him find a big new audience in the 60s! The approach here is a bit different than some of Kirk's more bombastic jazz albums from previous years – gentle, and almost spiritual at times – thanks to heavy use of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roland KirkRip, Rig & Panic ... LP
Limelight, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Mindblowing work from Roland Kirk – a record that really pushes the boundaries of his music even farther than some of his earlier, and excellent, albums for the Mercury label!

John KlemmerFresh Feathers ... LP
ABC, 1974. Very Good ... $2.99
Fairly funky set of tracks in which Klemmer plays electric and acoustic tenor, and in which he's accompanied by LA studio jazz talents like Harvey Mason, Wilton Felder, and Victor Feldman.

Prestige, 1967. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Totally great work from a young Eric Kloss – grits, gravy, and a whole lot more!

Eric KlossLife Force ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good- ... $12.99
A pivotal album for Eric Kloss, and one that has him reaching for the freer style that would characterize his work for the next decade – but which also has him sticking pretty close to his soul jazz roots, and laying down some tight modal grooves.

Playback, 1959. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A hip little album from pianist Paul Knopf – a player we don't know at all, but who really sounds wonderful here!

Moe KoffmanJungle Man ... LP
GRT, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An obscure later set from the funky flute man – who also plays alto, tenor, and soprano sax too – with some keyboards in the mix, and a sweetly soulful sound! The whole thing's got a great sort of CTI/Kudu vibe – and the record's even divided up into feminine and masculine sides! LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Moe KoffmanMuseum Pieces ... LP
Janus, 1978. Sealed ... $6.99
A groovy album of moody electric funk tracks from Moe Koffman – and probably one of his best records from the 70s! The groove is nice and rolling, with less of the break-oriented sound than you might expect, but still with some very nice mellow, almost CTI-ish moments, thanks to keyboards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has a hole in front.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Moe KoffmanTurned On ... LP
Jubilee, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the nicest albums cut by funky flute player Moe Koffman – kind of a batch of groovy 60s instrumentals, but with more of a soul tinge than you'd expect by the cover. The record features nice originals by Koffman called "James Brown's Bag" and "Funky Monkey" – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vogue (France), 1953. Near Mint- ... $28.99
During the immediate postwar years, Hans Koller was one of the first European jazz artists to emerge with a talent rich enough to challenge his older American counterparts.

Hans KollerMinor Meetings 1958 ... LP
Sonorama (Germany), 1958. New Copy ... $16.99
Hardly a set of minor meetings at all – given that tenorist Hans Koller works here in the company of a host of great musicians from the late 50s German scene, in a set of tracks that ranks with the best of his long career as a leader!

Progressive, 1976. Very Good ... $3.99
A wonderful mid 70s side from Konitz, joined here by a lithe quintet that features Ted Brown on tenor, and Rufus Rei, Albert Dailey and Joe Chambers in the rhythm section.

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lee KonitzSpirits ... LP
Milestone, 1971. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A nice little session from Lee Konitz – simple, without many tricks, and a great 70s extension of the sound of his 50s work!

Carl KressCarl Kress Guitar Stylist (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Mid 40s/Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A great set of tracks by this oft-overlooked swing guitarist.
