Jorge AndersJorge Anders Y Su Orchestra ... LP
Redondel (Argentina), 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $28.99
Rare work from the combo of Argentine reedman Jorge Anders – who you may know from his later work in Quinteplus! Anders plays some soulful tenor here, in the company of a larger group that's heavy on horns, with a bit of organ too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light staining and writing inside the gatefold, but is nice outside.)

Joanne BrackeenPrism ... LP
Choice, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Joanne Brackeen's at the top of her game here – working in a unique set of duets with bassist Eddie Gomez – at a level that matches the fire and fury of any of her work with a larger group! Brackeen's got this tremendous command of the keyboard right from the start – a wide sweep that has the notes cascading wonderfully – in rich melodies with a very deep sound, but still lots of sharp edges, and this sense of freedom that makes you think she's always just about to go outside – before pulling it back a bit. Gomez is sublime, as always – and his bass work adapts perfectly to each individual moment – stating itself strongly, but never in a way that's gimmicky at all – and always balanced between a sense of melody and timekeeping too. Titles include "Lost Or Found", "International Festival", "Evanescent", "If You Dare", and "Prism". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

Illinois JacquetKing! ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A bit of a mad LP for Jacquet – ostensibly trad on the outside, but with some weird little elements once you give it a closer listen. The lineup is conventional enough – with players that include Joe Newman, Milt Buckner, Billy Butler, Jo Jones, and Montego Joe – but it's the way they come together that makes the set really work. Jacquet's tone is rough and growly on most numbers – and the rhythm has a scattered finish that keeps things a bit off-guard. Titles include "The King", "Caravan", "A Haunting Melody", and "How High The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a worn corner.)

Keith JarrettShades ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion. The feel is a bit straighter than Jarrett's excellent Death & The Flower set – as the tunes have a highly rhythmic component, and make good use of the extra percussion to create a flowing, organic groove. There's still a nice loose feel overall, though – almost a take on the loft jazz sound, especially at the moments when Jarrett goes a bit outside on piano. Titles include "Shades Of Jazz", "Southern Smiles", "Rose Petals", and "Diatribe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some edge wear and a promo stamp.)

Shirley Scott & Kenny BurrellTravelin' Light ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Kenny Burrell joins the trio of organist Shirley Scott for this sweet little album – a set that seems to burn a bit more than usual for Shirley, probably because of the cool-toned guitar lines from Kenny! The album's got the same laid back feel as other Scott albums of the time, but Burrell really digs in during his solos – adding a bit more bite, and inspiring Shirley to do the same on her own Hammond lines. Bass is by Eddie Khan and drums are by Otis Finch – and titles include "Solar", "The Kerry Dance", "They Call It Stormy Monday", "Nice N Easy", and "Baby It's Cold Outside". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a bit of pen on back.)

Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 ... LP
Actuel (France), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
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 tapestry of sound, but with less of the structuring righteous concepts of some of Archie's other work – especially his sides for Impulse. Shepp had really been experiencing some new freedoms on the French scene of the late 60s – even more so than in the US avant outfield – and you can definitely hear him taking flight here, with a like-minded group of players that includes Clifford Thornton on trombone and shenai, Alan Shorter on flugelhorn, Joseph Dujean on guitar, Beb Guerin on bass, and Claud Delcloo on drums. This first part of the live set features one long track – "The Early Bird" – a slow building number that goes increasingly outside as it progresses, featuring some very over the top solo work from Shepp, who also plays a bit of piano on the set! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Vinyl is great. Cover has a small mark from an old sticker in one corner, but is otherwise nice.)

Weather ReportSweetnighter ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Weather Report – an album that has them picking up a bit more soul than before, and shaking off some of the experimental sounds of their roots – yet all in a way that still makes them one of the most revolutionary fusion combos of the time! There's an incredible sense of tightness between the reeds of Wayne Shorter, the keyboards of Joe Zawinul, and the bass of Miroslav Vitous – and even when things go a bit outside, there's always a sense of focus and groove that brings them back together – a style that's never entirely funky, but which has plenty of funky elements to please our ears! Dom Um Romao's percussion is always a treat, and Zawinul's electric keys come through beautifully in the mix – on tracks that include "125th Street Congress", "Boogie Woogie Waltz", "Adios", "Manolete", "Will", and "Non-Stop Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a short click on the 1st track of side 1.)

Gene ShawDebut In Blues ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful! Gene Shaw's one of the most overlooked talents in jazz from this era – and this is one of his greatest albums! After running away from Mingus after the Tijuana Moods sessions (Mingus threatened to kill him), trumpeter Clarence Shaw moved to Chicago, started using his middle name of "Gene", and started working with a bunch of musicians that were all geniuses in playing and composition, but who never really made a name for themselves outside of the city. This rare Argo album captures that scene perfectly, and features Shaw's trumpet on 8 fantastic original tracks – deftly shifting between modernism and soul jazz, in a mode that's incredibly sophisticated for the time. Many tracks are written by Jim Taylor, the excellent young pianist in Shaw's group – and tracks include "Debut In Blues", "Karachi", "The Gentle Princess", "Travelog", "Not Too Cool", and "Who Knows". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Chess pressing. Label has a small peeled spot.)

New John ColtraneInfinity ... LP
Impulse, 1965/1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The John Coltrane sound stretching out to Infinity – beautifully collaborating core spiritual sounds recorded when The Great One was still alive, and later string passages done by Alice Coltrane in the early 70s! The initial tracks are very open and almost easygoing – not the full-on outside expressions of some other Coltrane unreleased sides from the time, but the more cosmic sound of Love Supreme – carried out by musicians that include Alice Coltrane on harp, piano, and organ – plus Pharoah Sanders on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison and Charlie Haden on bass, Rashied Ali on percussion, and Elvin Jones on drums. The strings are surprisingly wonderful, too – kind of linking the Coltrane and post-Coltrane generations in ways that are really marvelous, and filled with the kind of majesty that Coltrane should have deserved while still on this planet! Titles include "Living Space", "Joy", "Leo", and "Peace On Earth". LP, Vinyl record album

New King Fleming TrioWeary Traveler ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
King Fleming's third trio side for the Argo label, another variety of standards with a few Fleming originals thrown in for good measure. In the Chicago piano trio tradition of Ramsey Lewis or Ahmad Jamal (who actually followed in Fleming's footsteps), this set covers soulful ballads like "Dearly Beloved" or "I Remember You" and bluesy originals like Fleming's "Darn It" and "Riff A Plenty". Like Von Freeman, King Fleming's is a voice seldom heard outside of Chicago, while quietly influencing many of the more well known stars to come to prominence on the national and international scene. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label mono pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

New Billy HarperTrying To Make Heaven My Home ... LP
MPS (Japan), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredibly spiritual work from tenorist Billy Harper – a record that really lives up to its title, given the heavens-searching vibe in the music! The album's a rare date that Billy cut for the MPS label at the end of the 70s, and it rivals the genius of his Japanese sessions from the same stretch – very open, with a tremendous sense of freedom that's always directed towards the best sort of exploratory energy – going a bit more outside here than usual, at least compared to other Harper albums of the time. The great Everett Hollins plays trumpet on the set – a player we only know from Harper records, but one who always makes Billy's music sparkle – and other musicians include Armen Donelian on piano, Wayne Dockery on bass, and Malcolm Pinson on drums. Titles include "Trying To Make Heaven My Home", "Insight", and "Love On The Sudan". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing – with obi!)

New Terumasa HinoTaro's Mood ... LP
Enja, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first great non-Japanese recordings by trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a smoking little live set from Germany, done at a time when Hino was working at the height of his youthful powers! The mode here is stretched out and open – never too outside, but very exploratory – in the direction that Hino took quite strongly on his Japanese albums as the 70s approached, but performed here in a style that's even more organic than those records. The group is all Japanese – with Motohiko Hino on drums and Mikio Masuda on piano – and added conga at the bottom of the backings almost gives the record an early 70s Impulse Records sort of feel – nice and spiritual, and plenty soulful! Titles include "Alone Alone & Alone", "Taro's Mood", "Black Daffodil", and "Predawn". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a cut corner and some wear.)

New Wes MontgomeryFull House ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
With grooves this great, the house must have been full – and the album's a gem of an early live date by Wes Montgomery, recorded in Berkeley with a quartet that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums! The tunes have a nicely cooking feel throughout – even when they're more gentle ones – and the record's a good reminder that outside of the studio, Wes could sometimes play with a bit more force on the strings – raspily hitting notes that explode off the guitar with tremendous precision and a good deel of feeling. Titles include the Montgomery originals "Full House", "SOS", and "Cariba", plus the tunes"Blue N Boogie" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi.)

New David MurrayLive At Sweet Basil Vol 2 ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really bold step forward for David Murray – a seminal live recording that features one of the hippest big bands you'll ever hope to find! Murray really uses the date as a chance to express the full range of his musical talents – and often shows modes that are more traditional than you might expect, yet which are always touched with an undercurrent of modernism! The musical palette here is quite different than either the outside or inside sessions recorded by Murray with a small group at the time – and he really reaches back through a rich history of jazz in the performance, and updates it wonderfully with help from players who include Baikida Carroll on trumpet, Olu Dara on cornet, Craig Harris on trombone, Vincent Chaney on French horn, Steve Coleman on alto and soprano sax, Rod Williams on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Butch Morris conducts – and titles on this second volume include "Dewey's Circle", "Roses", "David Tune", "Four Minute Marvin", and "Great Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

New Pharoah SandersJewels Of Thought ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah" – a title that has much of the same grace and power as "The Creator Has A Master Plan. The rest of the players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on basses, and Idris Muhammad and Roy Haynes on drums – and unusually enough, each of the double bassists and drummers gets their own channel of sound to work with! The other long track on the album is the extended "Sun In Aquarius" – which is a bit more outside, but still pretty great! LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has wear, with flaking, peeling and staining due to moisture along the left 4 inches, as well as inside the gatefold. Vinyl plays with clicks and crackles.)

New Pharoah SandersKarma ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it's a beautiful extended suite of tracks that flows with a sense of grace, power, and majesty that's simply breathtaking – a new level of expression in spiritual jazz – and virtually the blueprint for an entire generation to come! The album features the classic track "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – spanning a tremendous amount of space and time – and featuring Leon Thomas' classic vocals on the lyrics! Thomas also returns on the cut "Colors", which is a bit more outside, and quite free overall – and other players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, James Spaulding on flute, Julius Watkins on French horn, Ron Carter and Richard Davis on bass, and Freddie Waits and Billy Hart on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label stereo pressing. Cover is in nice shape.)

New George WallingtonJazz For The Carriage Trade ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all players that help push the record with a tremendous amount of hardbop and modern jazz energy! Byrd and Woods are at their best youthful prime on the set – and the longish tracks really give both artists room to stretch out and show off their talents! Titles include "Foster Dulles", "Together We Wail", "Our Delight", and "But George". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original NYC 50th pressing, with deep groove and RVG stamp! Vinyl is nice and clean, with just a few light marks – and cover has light wear and a split spine, but is decent too.)

New Bill EvansVillage Vanguard Sessions ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1961. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Milestone 70s two-fer collecting the recordings of the classic (and best) Evans trio caught live at the Village Vanguard in 1961. This is the group that established Evans outside of the Miles group, playing a typical Evans set of standards, with a wonderful open sound that would influence generations to come. 13 numbers in all, including "My Foolish Heart", "Waltz For Debby", "Detour Ahead", "My Romance", "Some Other Time", "Gloria's Steps", "All Of You", "Jade Visions", "Porgy", and "Milestones". LP, Vinyl record album

New Yusef LateefLost In Sound ... LP
Charlie Parker, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Yusef Lateef's one and only album for the Charlie Parker label – cut during a period when he's been making real waves in the jazz scene with work on Prestige and Savoy! The set's a bit more straight ahead than some of Lateef's more exotic sides of the time – focusing on his work on tenor, and going for a soulful hardbop approach that relatively upbeat and swinging, with traces of the work that Lateef was doing in the Cannonball Adderley group of the time. Players on the album include Vincent Pitts on trumpet, John Horman on piano, Ray McKinny on bass, and either George Scott or Clifford Jarvis on drums – and all tunes save two are originals, with titles that include "Outside Blues", "Blue Rocky", "Introlude", "Train Stomp", and "Trudy's Delight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split on the top seam & a light stain on the back.)

New Dewey RedmanMusics ... LP
Galaxy, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully soulful record from the great Dewey Redman – straighter than some of his 70s recordings, but in a really great way that shows that Dewey could still be quite compelling in another sort of way! The sound of his tenor here is wonderful – blowing with a rich, full, imaginative sound that never lets up – save for the few points when Redman picks up another instrument – such as musette on one track, and harp on another – both of which he uses to shade things in with slight spiritual tones. A few tracks get a bit more outside, but these moments soon return to the fold of the soulful tenor – and the group features Fred Simmons on piano, Mark Helias on bass, and Eddie Moore on drums, percussion, and saw. Titles include "Alone Again Naturally", "Need To Be", "Unknown Tongue", "One Beautiful Day", and "Daystar Nightlight". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kenny CoxIntroducing Kenny Cox & the Contemporary Jazz Quartet ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked late 60s treasure on Blue Note – one of the few new groups to work on the label at the time, and an up-and-coming modern combo from Detroit! The album's quite unique for a number of reasons – not just because the group was a little-known new signing to the label, but also because the work is quite far-reaching at times – some of the most free-thinking jazz recorded for Blue Note during the time, with a sense of boldness that almost stretches back to Jackie McLean's first few records of the new thing years, or a sense of lyrical invention that's a bit like Wayne Shorter when he made a shift towards the outside. Some numbers are awash in fast colors and changes, while others are a bit more in the pocket, with echoes of soul jazz – but the whole thing's incredibly fresh and free, a wonderful little record that only gets better and better over the years! The group features pianist Kenny Cox as the leader, plus Charles Moore on trumpet, Leon Henderson on tenor, Ron Brooks on bass, and Danny Spencer on drums. Titles include "Mystique", "You", "Trance Dance", "Eclipse", and "Number Four". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing. Cover has some wear and a sticker in one corner.)
