New Charlie ShaversParis Jazz ... LP
Sunset, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $1.99
Great late recordings from trumpeter Charlie Shavers – ostensibly recorded in Paris, where he spent a good part of his time in the 60s, although issued here with no real notes, which makes it tough to tell the real origin of the material!

George ShearingHere & Now ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A bit mellower than usual for George – but very nice! George's quintet is backed by a larger orchestra – the usual mixture of vibes, piano, guitar, and percussion supported by a larger set of strings, which gives the record a lightly drifting kind of feel.

MPS/PA USA, 1973. Sealed ... $2.99
One of George's 70s albums for MPS, and although not as funky as the other one, still a pretty nice batch of lightly swinging jazz tunes – played in a style that's more jazz-based than a lot of Shearing's other albums from the time.

Actuel (France), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever!

Don ShirleyDon Shirley Point Of View ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- ... $1.99
One of the mellowest and most laidback records ever from pianist Don Shirley – and that's saying a lot, given the quietude of his other records!

Blue Note, 1965/1979. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great Wayne Shorter session from the mid 60s – recorded then, but not issued until 1979, for some incredibly unexplained reason – especially given the strength of the set!

Blue Note, 1957. Very Good- ... $59.99
A great Horace Silver album – and one of the rarest!

Zoot SimsSoprano Sax ... LP
Pablo, 1976. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A rare treat from Zoot Sims – an album of soprano sax material, recorded in striking contrast to his more familiar tenor!

King, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $59.99
An amazing funky record cut by the American tenor player Hal Singer while he was living in exile in Paris.

Verve, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold ... $0.99
Although he was the consummate high-class hipster at the start of his career, for some reason Jimmy Smith seemed to hit a forced sort of rootsy style about halfway through his years at Verve.

Blue Note, Late 50s. Good+ ... $24.99
Like all of Jimmy's late 50s live sets, this is a killer, and features wild weird grooves, strangely played solos, and the kind of genius playing that makes you understand why Blue Note went so wild over Jimmy in the first place, and recorded him as much as they did.

Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $0.99
One of Jimmy's last albums for a major label in the 70s – a real back-to-basics set that was recorded live at the Jimmy Smith Supper Club in LA – the "home of fried cornbread and live jazz", and a venue that we certainly wish we could have visited!

Early Jimmy Smith work for Blue Note – packaged together here as a "standards" collection and issued on Liberty's Sunset label in the late 60s!

Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Material that was recorded in the early 60s, but not issued by Blue Note until later in the decade – when they were pulling out any Jimmy Smith session they had, in order to compete with the bigger hits on Verve.

Jimmy SmithOrgan Grinder Swing ... LP
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $12.99
No hokey organ grinder here – no monkey on a leash, begging for change on a street corner – just a smoking little trio session that stands as one of the best records that Jimmy Smith ever recorded for Verve!

Jimmy SmithOther Side Of Jimmy Smith ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The other side of Jimmy Smith is a mellow side – as this album's nearly all ballads and standards, set to moody late night orchestrations by Johnny Pate.

Jimmy SmithPrayer Meetin' ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine go head to head in a great little set for Blue Note – spare quartet grooving, with lots of room for soulful solos!

An overlooked 50s set from guitarist Johnny Smith – one that features a piano added into his trio, hence the "foursome" in the title!
