New Cannonball & Nat AdderleyThem Adderleys (aka Introducing Nat Adderley) ... LP
Limelight, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $2.99
A 60s repackaging of the album Introducing Nat Adderley – an excellent batch of soulful bop tracks, recorded as Nat's first, and with a group that includes brother Cannonball, Horace Silver, Roy Haynes, and Paul Chambers. The set's got a lot more fire than some of Nat's recordings from a few ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cannonball AdderleyJump For Joy ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Good ... $4.99
An interesting early side by Cannonball that captures him before he'd really found his voice – and when the folks at Mercury still didn't really know what to do with him. The record's a tightly arranged set of tracks from Duke Ellington's musical "Jump For Joy" – with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Cover has smoke discoloration around the edges.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cannonball AdderleyLush Side Of Cannonball ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
A wonderfully mellow set of ballads recorded by Cannonball, with orchestral backings by Richard Hayman. The album's typical of the kind of "all over the map" approach that Mercury used during Cannon's early years – before he'd settled down into the one-man soul jazz factory he ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Cover looks nice overall, save for some moisture on the back along part of the opening.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manny AlbamJazz Greats Of Our Time Vol 1 ... LP
Coral, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
A great large group project from arranger Manny Albam – one that teams him up with "jazz greats" of the east coast scene, in a really hard-swinging set of tracks that showcase some wonderful solo work! Manny's working here with a set of players who are well-chosen for their ability ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe AlbanyPortrait Of An Artist ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A great portrait of an under-recorded artist – Joe Albany's last album ever, recorded for Elektra records during their early 80s run of straight jazz sides! The record's got a spare, personal quality that's similar to Albany's other late work – but it's a bit more professionally put ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Steve AllenCool Quiet Bossa Nova ... LP
Dot, 1967. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Steve Allen's not a name we'd usually associate with bossa nova, but he does a surprisingly great job on this sweet little set – thanks to help from a small combo of west coast players! The album's still in the jazz mode of some of Allen's other albums for Dot, but the rhythms are bossa all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gene AmmonsBoss Is Back! ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good ... $4.99
In "back", the title is pointing to the fact that Gene Ammons is back on the scene, after being released from 7 years of a tragic 15 year narcotics sentence in prison. The album marks a proud return for Jug – who'd not recorded since a very successful flurry of sides recorded in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gene AmmonsGot My Own ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Very Good ... $2.99
A more laidback set than usual from Ammons' early 70s stretch on Prestige – but a record that nicely gets back to that big-toned tenor sound he used often on ballads from earlier years! The combo mixes both electric piano and organ – the former from Hank Jones, the latter from Ernie ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Late 40s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
A double LP set pulled together in the mid 70s of Jug's bluesy bop sides cut in the late 40s for Mercury.

Gene AmmonsLight, Bluesy, & Moody ... LP
Wing/Mercury, Late 40s/Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Essential early stuff by Jug! The record is a 50s compilation of singles that Jug cut for Mercury during the late 40s, when he was transforming from a hard swing player into a firey bopper – but one who was capable of infusing his solos with a rich sense of emotion that was enough to bridge ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Gene AmmonsNothin' But Soul (Winley) ... LP
Winley, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Very nice record, and one of the rarer sides by Gene Ammons. We can't remember the exact story behind this, but we know that the material was recorded by Jug during the early 60's, when he was violating his contractual agreements with a number of labels, and recording sessions for just about ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Gene AmmonsUp Tight! ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good- ... $3.99
A great little session by Jug – cut after the late 50s blowing session years, and with a much tighter sound that's very much in the pocket! The record features two groups – one with Walter Bishop, Art Davis, and Art Taylor; the other with Patti Brown, George Duvivier, and Taylor ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsVelvet Soul ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $3.99
Classic mellow Jug – from a time when Prestige discovered that Gene Ammons would sell equally well to the mellow jazz crowd as to the jukebox jumpers. Most of the cuts feature Gene with a deep soulful tone that could qualify as "velvet", but which still has enough of a rough edge ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons & Sonny StittJug & Sonny (jug & corn cover – purple border) ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $3.99
A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the 50s. The two horns aren't really locked in combat ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A hard-hitting blowing session, cut very much in the mode of Gene's late 50s sides for Prestige – and with a very accomplished group of soul jazzers that includes Nat Adderley, Frank Foster, Bennie Green, and Frank Wess. The groove has a nice raw late night sound – and tracks are ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Georgie AuldDancing In The Land Of HI-FI ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Very Good- ... $4.99
Plenty of dancing here – romping rhythms that are a nice change for Georgie Auld, and which make for a perfect foil for his deeper sounds on the tenor! The record's got a bit of Mercury Records rock in the mix – almost a Red Prysock approach at points, mixed with some of the sweeter ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A real cooker from Georgie Auld's years on Mercury – a record that comes across with some "hi fi" dynamics, but which also features a strongly swinging group overall!

Flying Dutchman, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
One of Gato Barbieri's better albums from the early 70s – and like his other Latin-themed sessions, a swirling mix of soulful soloing, modal grooves, and unbridled emotion!

A killer set from Count Basie – recorded during the height of his years at Roulette!

The record is a perfect example of how great R&B jazz fusion could be – well before the sound hit a kind of smooth jazz saturation point and there ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Dave BrubeckBossa Nova USA ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $5.99
Way more than just a gimmicky bossa nova session – and a surprisingly great showcase for the inventive rhythms of the Brubeck group, and the sensitive alto work of Paul Desmond! The record's got a really different feel than some of Dave's other work for Columbia – in that the modernism ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Bobby BryantBig Band Blues ... LP
Vee Jay, 1959. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the earliest albums ever recorded by trumpeter Bobby Bryant – but a set that was also only issued after his bigger albums of the 60s! The set was cut for Vee Jay in 1959, when Bobby was living in Chicago – but wasn't issued at the time – and it's a fantastic document of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BryantHere's Ray Bryant ... LP
Pablo, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A simple trio album, but a really great one – the kind that almost re-ignites Ray Bryant's career, which is a hard thing to do, given how many records he's already got under his belt! But somehow, there's really something fresh going on here – an array of sounds and modes that goes far ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdLatin Impressions ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $1.99
The Latin Impressions here are more Brazilian than Cuban – and maybe a bit Spanish, too – given the strong use of acoustic guitar from Charlie Byrd! The set's got a laidback, open feel – and Byrd's guitar work is mighty deft, yet without all the frills and flowers of some of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdTakin' Care Of Business ... LP
TCB, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good ... $2.99
70's issue of one of the Donald Byrd/Pepper Adams sessions for the Warwick label, from the early 60's. The groove is nice and hard, with a very tight, very in-the-pocket sort of sound. A young Herbie Hancock plays piano, and he lays down solos that are a lot more daring, and with a lot more fire, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdThank You For FUML (Funkin Up My Life) ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A post-Blue Note effort, and Donald's changing things up a bit with his 125th Street Orchestra and Uptown Singers – funking along in a way you'd expect from the longwinded title! Byrd loostens up the smoother backgrounds of his recent Larry Mizell helmed work, and in their place are grooves ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Red CallenderRed Callender Speaks Low ... LP
Crown, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by Red Callender – a player who certainly speaks "low", given that his instrument here is the tuba! Red's got a rumbling, bassy sound that's surprisingly un-corny – an approach to the tuba that's also informed by Callender's many years ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bruce Cameron EnsembleJet Away! ... LP
Jazzworks, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
Nice album of mellow smooth funky fusion – played by a group led by trumpeter Bruce Cameron, and featuring Patrice Rushen, Ray Pizzi, and Bob Magnusson. The sound seems to be an attempt to recapture a Donald Byrd/Larry Mizell sound – and at points, it actually comes close. Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Benny CarterAspects (aka Jazz Calendar) ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good ... $5.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Everest, Early 40s. Very Good ... $3.99
The roots of bebop! During the early 40s, sets held in Harlem nightclubs, especially the famous Minton's, were seminal to the development of bebop – and you'll hear exactly what we mean on this album! The set features material recorded by Jerry Newman at Minton's and Monroe's up in Harlem ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest long-form albums from the Clarke Boland Big Band – a sophisticated suite that not only shows off the writing ability of Francy Boland, but also demonstrates the group's ability to swing like a mofo, even when things are serious!
