Johnny LytleClose Enough For Jazz ... LP
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $4.99
Strange title – but a great record! We can't figure out why they titled this one the way they did, especially because it's a very jazzy record, and one that features Johnny's trademark organ/vibes soul jazz style – which is always close enough to jazz for us! A few cuts have vocals by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milestone, 1971. Very Good- .... $48.99
A lost early 70s set from vibesman Johnny Lytle – totally funky, but in a way that's very different than his famous 60s work!
