John KlemmerFinesse ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A smooth set from reedman John Klemmer, but a pretty darn soulful one too – and a great illustration of the way that Klemmer could still hold onto his roots a lot more strongly than some of his contemporaries! The backings are gentle and fusiony – often with some great keyboard work ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John KlemmerMagic & Movement ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
Excellent work by Klemmer – filled with the kind of fire and emotion that you don't get on many of his other records! The set was recorded live at two different venues – and it's a choppy slightly-funky batch of modal soul jazz tunes, with an approach that makes it feel like a lost ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eric KlossGrits & Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good ... $12.99
Totally great work from a young Eric Kloss – grits, gravy, and a whole lot more! About half the record has Kloss blowing with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums – going for a style that's more towards the soulful end of Byard's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Eric KlossLove & All That Jazz ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Great early Eric Kloss record, with a tight organ jazz feel, courtesy of Groove Holmes and Don Patterson. Kloss was totally tight at this point, and less given to the sort of sloppy experimentation that weakened him later. He's backed by two great tight organ jazz groups, and the feel is nice and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Paul KnopfEnigma Of A Day ... LP
Playback, 1959. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A hip little album from pianist Paul Knopf – a player we don't know at all, but who really sounds wonderful here! Knopf has a bit of a modern edge in his music – one that's never too academic, nor too free – but which bursts out with a cool sort of energy here – almost ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Moe KoffmanMuseum Pieces ... LP
Janus, 1978. Sealed ... $9.99
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ronnie KoleRonnie Kole Plays For You Alone ... LP
Paula, Late 60s. Sealed ... $9.99
The greatest session ever recorded by pianist Ronnie Kole – recorded for the Louisiana label Paula, but with all the feel of a Chess/Cadet session from the late 60s! All of this is no surprise, since Ronnie himself was an ex-Chicagoan, living in New Orleans – and the album's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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! By the time of these sides, Koller was already one of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A hip jazz treasure from early 60s Germany – and an album that's noteworthy not just for the two players featured in the lead, but also for pianist Horst Jankowski – who's much groovier here than on his easy listening work!

Despite the stupid name (or perhaps because of it), this is one of the great lost sessions of the 60s!
