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.

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

Sonny StittOnly The Blues ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good ... $19.99
Probably the most classic of Stitt's sides for Verve – and certainly the one that gets rated time and time again by jazz collectors.

Sonny Stitt makes Oscar Peterson sit up and groove!

Jack TeagardenJack Teagarden – Jazz Great ... LP
Bethlehem, 1954. Very Good ... $18.99
The album definitely lives up to the title, and features the mighty Jack Teagarden in a number of small group settings – all with a straight ahead punch that gets away from some of the gimmicks of his other 50s sessions! Teagarden's trombone is still one of the sharpest instruments of his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Clark TerryMumbles ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A surprisingly great little record from Clark Terry – filled with warmth, humor, and some really great grooves! The core of the album is the track "Mumbles", one that's based around Terry kind of slurring a scat vocal to a jazzy 60s groove. The track was a minor hit at the time, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Clark Terry & Chico O'FarrillSpanish Rice ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Sweet Latin licks from Clark Terry and Chico O'Farrill – cut in a mode that's very similar to O'Farrill's best Verve work of the 60s! The vibe is kind of a mod take on Afro Cuban sounds – not really Latin soul, but with a playful vibe that mixes together jazz and Latin with equal parts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A compilation of Joe Gordon, Art Mardigan, Paul Gonsalves and Clark Terry each leading their own bands on a couple of tracks.

One of the gems that Lucky Thompson cut on his return to the US in the mid 60s – and one of the few albums from that time that got wide release!

Lucky Thompson blows with the Tete Montoliu trio, in this warmly soulful set of tracks recorded in Spain in 1970.
