Jimmy McGriffTopkapi ... LP
Sue, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A very unusual album for Jimmy – but a great one too! The set breaks the mode of Jimmy's small combo Sue work and features his organ amidst some larger arrangements from Fred Norman – a blend of skipping strings and jazzy rhythms that really lets Jimmy open up and groove around the top ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jimmy McGriffWay You Look Tonight ... LP
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
Damn, Jimmy's always great! Even in a session like this – the kind of obscure, almost "off the books" sort of album, Jimmy's still giving 110% on the Hammond – grooving with an unnamed group in a mode that recalls the fiercely swinging sound of Groove Holmes at his best in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Groove Merchant, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Sweet funky blues from the team of Junior Parker and Jimmy McGriff – coming together here in a way that's even groovier than some of their previous work!

New John McLaughlinExtrapolation ... LP
Polydor, 1968. Very Good ... $5.99
Most likely our favorite album by John McLaughlin – and one that features him in a wonderfully spare setting – alongside John Surman on saxes, Brian Odges on bass, and Tony Oxley on drums.

Jackie McLean4, 5 & 6 ... LP
Prestige/OJC, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
An unusual title, but one that refers to Jackie McLean in quartet, quintet, and sextet formation – a growing lineup that develops along the course of the record, as new players are added into the mix with a casual, almost blowing session approach!

Jackie McLeanBout Soul ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
A seminal album from altoist Jackie McLean – and a set that serves as a key bridge between his mid 60s avant work in the "new thing" scene, and the deeper, spiritual sounds he'd play in years to come!

70's 2-fer that brings together 2 of Jackie McLean's classic bop albums for Prestige – Lights Out and 4, 5, & 6. The groups include Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Elmo Hope, and Mal Waldron.

Jackie McLeanJackie's Bag ... LP
Blue Note, 1959/1960. Very Good ... $11.99

Second pressing of an album also issued under the name of Jackie's Pal in the late 50s – when it was originally recorded.

Marian McPartlandAfter Dark ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Very Good ... $14.99

Modern Jazz Quartet With Jimmy GiuffreModern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn – Guest Artist Jimmy Giuffre ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great addition to the Modern Jazz Quartet – as the clarinet of Jimmy Giuffre brings a sharp modern edge to the record! The album's similar to the other MJQ Music Inn date with Sonny Rollins – and shows how the addition of a reed player can really unlock new colors, tones, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet/Milt Jackson QuintetMJQ ... LP
Prestige, 1952/1954. Very Good- ... $19.99
Nice stuff from the early days of the MJQ – recorded back when Kenny Clarke was still playing drums with the group, and giving them a bit more of a bottom!

Blue Note, 1969. New Copy 2 LPs ... Just Sold Out!
A lost treasure from the legendary Thelonious Monk – a live date recorded in Paris at the end of the 60s – late in Monk's life, and every bit as wonderful as his famous 60s studio work with his quartet!

Wes Montgomery with a bit of sax and flute – a nice change from the sound of some of his other early records, thanks to key work on the set from James Clay!

A prime Argo gem from James Moody – and key proof that when he wanted to, he could be one of the hippest cats working in 60s jazz!

Great work from Moody's "second phase" – the post-Overbrook time in which he picks up the flute, drops a bit of the bop style, and starts working in a much more complicated style that showed that he had a hell of a lot of room to grow as an artist!
