Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 ... LP
Actuel (France), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever!

Liberty, Early 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
One of a few albums released in the US by the famous French pianist Martial Solal – a player who'd made a bit of a splash in the early 60s, when he was making a few appearances in America.

Prestige, 1970. Good ... $24.99
Massive funkiness! This album ranks as one of the best from the early 70's period at Prestige, and it features a crack group of young heavy hitters like Sparks on guitar, Leon Spencer on organ, Grover Washington on tenor, and Idris Muhammad on drums – all wailing, just wailing, away on long ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Badass organ funk from the mighty Leon Spencer – a set that's got a bit of a fuller feel than some of his previous albums for Prestige – but a groove that's also equally great!

One of the first albums ever from ultra-cool flute man Jeremy Steig – a jazz album at its core, but one with some rock and folk elements as well!

Roost, 1956. Very Good- ... $19.99
Nice one! This is the kind of material that's made Sonny Stitt a favorite for rare jazz vinyl hounds, and it's also the kind of session that's previously been sorely missed in most reissue campaigns of his work.

Muse, 1974. Very Good ... $2.99
An excellent bop side that finds Stitt and his sidemen still at the top of their game, despite the fact that the date was rather late in many of their careers.

A mellow late-night set of jazz tracks, cut with Don Patterson and his trio that included Paul Weeden and Billy James.
