Rod LevittSolid Ground ... LP
RCA, 1966. Sealed ... $9.99
Rod Levitt led one of the hippest large groups of the 60's, and although his work was barely recognized at the time, and all but forgotten now, these RCA records of his stand as a constant tribute to his brilliant skills as an arranger and leader.

Groove Merchant, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wonderfully baroque funk from the great O'Donel Levy! The album's got some very cool arrangements by Manny Albam that mix together strings and funk – in a super-dope way that sounds a lot like the work coming out of Cadet during the late 60s – and the rest of the set features Levy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New O'Donel LevyEverything I Do Gonna Be Funky ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The butt-squeezing cover should be enough to let you know that this is one funky album – but if that doesn't get the message across, the grooves certainly do!

Atlantic, 1957. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the strongest sessions recorded by pianist John Lewis in the 50s – a date that shows depths of his talents that run even greater than his work with the Modern Jazz Quartet, quite possibly because is work on piano is at the forefront of the record throughout!

Cadet, 1968. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!

Cosmic jazzy genius from Bubbha Thomas & The Lightmen – the kind of a record that sounds like it should have come out of Detroit or Chicago in the early 70s – and not the Texas scene from which the group hailed!

Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
