The title says "57", but the music's from a few years before – yet that's OK with us, because Bud Powell always has a sound that's instantly timeless no matter what the year! The album brings together sides from Verve dates in 1954 and 1955 – one featuring Art Blakey on drums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Norgran pressing with trumpeter logo & deep groove. Vinyl has a number of marks & plays with some crackles. Cover has some peeling of the gloss finish, a stain in one corner, small splits on the top & bottom seams, & a bit of pen on the back.)

Bud PowellBud Powell In Paris ... LP
Reprise, 1964. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A surprising Bud Powell album for Reprise Records – and one of the label's hippest jazz titles ever! When Frank Sinatra first started up the Reprise imprint, he let Duke Ellington do a bit of A&R for the jazz division – and one of the first things Ellington did was capture the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Surprisingly nice stuff – especially considering that the album was one in a string of Previn piano sessions for Contemporary – all based around Broadway themes as part of the success of his My Fair Lady date with Shelly Manne!

Prince Lasha & Sonny SimmonsCry! ... LP
Contemporary, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A classic of spiritual jazz! The album is one of the few rare pairings of Sonny Simmons and Prince Lasha from the 60s – and it's arguably the greatest album they ever cut! The set was recorded for the Contemporary label in LA, but it's far far different than the cool jazz that was the label' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Michel PuigStigmates – Dirige Par Rene Leibowitz ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $28.99
A compelling "chamber opera" of sorts by Michel Puig – performed by a group of instrumentalists and vocalists led by Rene Leibowitz. The chamber tag is apt, as the peformance is very spare and intimate – and feels more like the kind of avant jazz of the late 60s European ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dawn, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
Brilliant work from the "Vice Pres" – tenorist Paul Quinichette, stepping out here in one the best of of his all-too-few sessions as a leader!

Perhaps the best-known (and arguably the best) record by Paul Quinchette, and an album that brings his rich tenor solo style into contact with a very tight, very swinging batch of arrangments by a young Quincy Jones. Quincy's got an all-star batch of players backing up Q, including Sam Most, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible record from Sun Ra!

Saturn, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Crazy stuff – one of the wilder albums from Sun Ra, and a record that has him playing on "two moog synthesizers" – which both sound as if they're going at the same time!

A fantastic spooky bit of wild keyboard jazz from Ra!
