Zoot SimsI Wish I Were Twins ... LP
Pablo, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Not sure exactly why Zoot's got some Gemini wishes in the title – but the album's a great date, one of his later pairings with pianist Jimmy Rowles – a beautiful partner for the laidback tone that Sims adopted at this stage in his career! The album's got an understated eloquence that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot SimsIf I'm Lucky – Zoot Sims Meets Jimmy Rowles ... LP
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An overlooked gem from Zoot Sims – a session that has him working in very laidback company with Jimmy Rowles on piano, who tipples the keys of the piano with a really timeless late nite kind of sound! The style here is a bit like that of the Rowles/Getz album The Peacocks – although a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot SimsNew Beat Bossa Nova Vol 1 ... LP
Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
A great chapter in 60s bossa jazz – Zoot Sims "answer" to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – recorded in a similar jazz-meets-bossa style, with some great guitar work by Jim Hall! Zoot's solos are a bit tighter and not as laidback as Stan's – giving a more jazz-based ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing, with deep groove.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Zoot SimsSoprano Sax ... LP
Pablo, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A rare treat from Zoot Sims – an album of soprano sax material, recorded in striking contrast to his more familiar tenor! The sound is oddly more traditional than usual – and unlike many other players in the 70s, Sims doesn't use the soprano in a Coltrane-inspired mode, but in a way ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and some wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Zoot SimsWaiting Game ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A rare gem from Zoot Sims – very different than any of his other albums! The session features Zoot blowing over large backings arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, a bit in the older Verve "with strings" mode, but also sparkling with a lot of the newer elements that McFarland ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot Sims QuintetModern Art Of Jazz ... LP
Dawn, 1956. Very Good ... $43.99
One of THE classic Zoot Sims small group recordings of the 50s – recorded with a quintet lineup that includes some great valve trombone work from Bob Brookmeyer!

Blue Note, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A partner album of sorts to Jimmy Smith's classic Midnight Special album – recorded during the same sessions as that one, and also featuring Stanley Turrentine on tenor and Kenny Burrell on guitar!

Jimmy SmithBluesmith ... LP
Verve, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
One of the hippest Jimmy Smith albums of the early 70s – a lean and mean, down and dirty, back to basics session for Verve – one that's got plenty of grit in the grooves! L:ike the Root Down album, this set is recorded live with a very stretched out feel – tracks that take Jimmy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithCat Strikes Again ... LP
Inner City, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99

The album's a tight studio session with Jimmy on the "Wersi Saturn W3T" organ, plus guitar by Howard Roberts and Dennis Budimir, piano by Ronnie Foster, trumpet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy SmithCrazy! Baby ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Used ... Just Sold Out!

New Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin' ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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. The style worked well for him, even if it sometimes languished in bluesy tones that seemed a bit forced ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithGroovin' At Smalls' Paradise Vol 1 ... LP
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. The tracks are mostly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithHobo Flats ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
A mighty pairing of Jimmy Smith and Oliver Nelson – one that has the heavy Hammond of Smith set up in some sparkling jazz backdrops from Nelson!

Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
Classic work from Jimmy Smith – a smokin' quartet session from the early 60's, one that sports a rare appearance by Percy France on tenor on most of the tracks!

Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Jimmy pays tribute to an earlier generation of R&B – in a hard-wailing set of soul jazz, done with backings from the legendary Oliver Nelson!

Blue Note, 1960. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A perennial favorite in the Jimmy Smith catalog for Blue Note – and a smoking little set that has Jimmy's Hammond grooving nicely alongside tenor from Stanley Turrentine and guitar from Kenny Burrell!

CTI, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
Very different than Jeremy Steig's earlier records – but a great little session that's got a sweet soulful feel!

Jeremy SteigJeremy & The Satyrs ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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!

Jeremy SteigLegwork ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Funky flute work from the great Jeremy Steig! The album's one of his best-ever – and it features the growling "Howling For Judy", a non-stop modal flute number that's been sampled to great fame by the Beastie Boys, and which you'll recognize immediately from the breathy rumbling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herb StewardHerb Steward Plays So Pretty ... LP
AVA, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A sweet little date for the AVA label – one that features the tenor and clarinet of Herb Steward set amidst lush strings from Dick Hazard!

Sonny Stitt37 Minutes & 48 Seconds ... LP
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. The set's nothing fancy – but its warm soulful grooves show Stitt at his best, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittBrand New Bag ... LP
Jazz Masters, Late 70s. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the best Stitt sessions from the 70's, and a sweet batch of electric tracks with Eddie Russ on the piano. In a way, this is his best album on the Jazz Master label – better than the Tornado album, which seems to show up more. It's got a very nice version of "We've Only Just ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittDeuces Wild ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A great little Sonny Stitt album – very different than any of his other sets from the 60s! The album has a number of interesting aspects – from hard-wailing organ by Wilmer Mosby (who we think is Don Patterson under a fake name), to some screaming guest work by Rufus Harley and Robin ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Sonny StittGoin' Down Slow ... LP
Prestige, 1972. Very Good ... $2.99
Sonny Stitt's going down slow here – hitting a groove that's a bit more laidback than some of his funkier albums for Prestige, but one that's still pretty darn great overall! The sound is almost in a Stanley Turrentine mode at CTI – with fuller arrangements behind his saxophone solos, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A very nicely selected 2LP set of tracks from Stitt's oft-overlooked years at Argo/Chess!

Jazzland, 1962. Very Good- ... $7.99
A mellow late-night set of jazz tracks, cut with Don Patterson and his trio that included Paul Weeden and Billy James. The record has a great soulful sound that's a lot more like some of Patterson's work on Prestige than the usual stuff on Jazzland – and we almost wonder if the session wasn't ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittMove On Over ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A bit rough around the edges, but a very tasty set from Stitt! The album's sort of free-spun organ set – with Stitt on alto and tenor, Joe Diorio on guitar, Eddie Buster on Hammond, and work by the great Nicky Hill on alto. Tracks are loosely put together – almost in a one-take mode, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1957. Good+ ... $9.99
Beautiful late 50s work from Stitt – filled with subtle complex solos, and a rich confident tone that was missing from earlier records!

Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A heck of a great little record – one that shouldn't work so well, but it does!

Sonny Stitt makes Oscar Peterson sit up and groove!

New Carl B Stokes/Oliver NelsonMayor & The People ... LP
Flying Dutchman, Early 70s. Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99

Impulse, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guita ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
