George Shearing & The Montgomery BrothersGeorge Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Some of jazz's most sensitive artists get together in a lyrical set of light-handed ditties. Shearing's piano is a surprisingly nice complement to the vibes/bass/guitar sound of The Montgomery Brothers – and the group is augmented by some nice Latin percussion. Tracks are short, and titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

George Shearing QuintetLatin Escapade ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great one from George Shearing – beautifully restrained, but coming across with these Latin grooves that are mighty nice too! Shearing's just about the only cat who could balance Latin percussion with piano this well – and the album's a perfect example of the way that George borrowed ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Archie SheppCry Of My People ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the most righteous albums ever from Archie Shepp – a beautiful late Impulse set of grooves, and a record that matches the genius of Attica Blues!

Archie SheppLive In San Francisco (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
A great counterpart to some of Archie Shepp's studio albums for Impulse – a live date recorded in San Francisco, with a slightly freer, sharper edge! The sound is almost free at times, but always with that strong sense of focus that Archie brought to his brilliant work of the time – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 ... LP
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! Shepp's still a righteous force here on his horn, but there also seems to be equal emphasis on the contributions of all members of the group – woven together in a really rich ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby ShewOutstanding In His Field ... LP
Inner City, 1980. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Nothing fancy, but a great little session from trumpeter Bobby Shew – really well put together, and lightly dancing with a harmonic quality that gives the set a lot of life. The best tracks are the longer originals – like "Faire Play" and "Kyss Abyss" – which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sahib ShihabJazz Sahib ... LP
Savoy, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A very nice session by baritonist Sahib Shihab – and one of the most far-reaching works he cut in this country before disappearing to Europe for the better part of the 60s! The album's broken into two different groups – both have Sahib playing with Phil Woods on alto and Benny Golson ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An excellent set of some fairly out material – performed by Shorter with a group that includes Freddie Hubbard, Grachan Moncur, James Spaulding, Herbie Hancock, and a rare appearance by his brother Alan on flugelhorn!

Genius, pure genius! Like all of Wayne Shorter's Blue Note sessions from the mid 60s, this album's a beautiful blend of hard bop ideas with a modern spiritual soulful consciousness – as important in its own way as Coltrane's work of the time – an incredible precursor for sounds from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – and one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note.

Horace SilverIn Pursuit Of The 27th Man ... LP
Blue Note, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold ... $7.99
A real watershed album from Horace Silver – a record that has him stepping strongly into the 70s – but with a rich new groove that's different both from his 60s work, and from the heavy politics of his United States series too!

Jimmy SmithBluesmith ... LP
Verve, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99

Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin' ... LP
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.

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.

Stuff SmithCat On A Hot Fiddle ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A late 50s Verve session by Stuff Smith – one in which the jazz violinist does a wonderful job shaking off his often quite hammy persona for a strong, straight up set of standards and well-known bop era cuts! He's got a great crew for these sessions, with the great Shirley Horn on piano on a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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.

New Melvin SparksSpark Plug ... LP
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!

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!

Funky flute work from the great Jeremy Steig!

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!

ABC, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A pretty compelling album of east coast chamber jazz – in a mode that's similar to some of the Jazz Workshop titles by Hal McKusick and other players on RCA.

New 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

One of the best Stitt sessions from the 70's, and a sweet batch of electric tracks with Eddie Russ on the piano.

Like Eddie Harris, Lou Donaldson, and a few other aging soul jazz stars in the late 60s, Sonny Stitt turned to the electric Varitone sax to juice up his career a bit.

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

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. We think it's pretty darn great – although we always wonder why folks don't give Stitt's other sides for Verve as much of a chance, because they're all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
