Bud Powell/Don ByasTribute To Cannonball (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1961. Used ... $13.99
A gem of a session from the European expatriot scene of the postwar years – not really a tribute to Cannonball Adderley, but a rare meeting of Bud Powell and Don Byas in the studio, produced by Cannonball in Paris in 1961! The record has a tremendous amount of fire and focus – ... read more CD

Abeat (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $10.99
The title and cover are a bit gimmicky, but the album's a wonderfully solid effort from Italian pianist Andrea Pozza – easily one of the most lyrical players we've heard in years! Pozza's got this way of mixing depth with lightness – a quality that sometimes evokes that special ... read more CD

Ropeadope, 2006. Used ... $7.99
One of the hippest records we've heard in years from drummer Bobby Previte – a record that has him getting some great help from Charlie Hunter, Stanton Moore, and Skerik – yet which also still resonates with some the artier touches of his earlier years as well!

Prince Lasha & Sonny SimmonsCry! ... LP
Contemporary, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A classic of spiritual jazz! The album is one of the few rare pairings of Sonny Simmons and Prince Lasha from the 60s – and it's arguably the greatest album they ever cut! The set was recorded for the Contemporary label in LA, but it's far far different than the cool jazz that was the label' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Michel PuigStigmates – Dirige Par Rene Leibowitz ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $28.99
A compelling "chamber opera" of sorts by Michel Puig – performed by a group of instrumentalists and vocalists led by Rene Leibowitz. The chamber tag is apt, as the peformance is very spare and intimate – and feels more like the kind of avant jazz of the late 60s European ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brilliant work from the "Vice Pres" – tenorist Paul Quinichette, stepping out here in one the best of of his all-too-few sessions as a leader!

Eric ReedAdventurous Monk ... CD
High Note/Savant, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Pianist Eric Reed is no stranger to the music of Thelonious Monk, but this set seems to have a special crackle that really makes it live up to its "adventurous" title! The tunes are all Monk numbers, but all seem to have some even sharper edges than usual – thanks in part to ... read more CD

482 Music, 2012. Used ... $8.99
A great one from Mike Reed and his People Places & Things group – a clear, crisp statement of Chicago modernism at its best – not just modes from Reed's own generation, but from the 50s and 60s as well! Reed's an amazing player on his own – but we especially love the way that ... read more CD

Synthethesia (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $15.99
A really sweet set from the UK – recorded by a contemporary combo, but with a feel that's right up there with our favorite funky fusion from the 70s!

Columbia (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
Lots of musical magic here – a further extension of the Return To Forever vibe that helped Chick Corea find some of his best energy of the 70s!

Buddy RichBig Band Shout (aka This One's For Basie) ... LP
Verve, 1956. Sealed ... $7.99
A lively little set done strongly in a Basie mode – as you might guess from the title!

Groovy stuff! We'd normally never say a bad word about Buddy (or else he'd sock us one!), but this album is particularly nice – as it features Rich's swinging late 60s group doing some pop/jazz covers of groovy 60s tunes, plus some very tasty originals! All tracks are pretty short, and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A 70s gem from Buddy Rich – a session that's cut with some really tightly arranged backings, but done in a way that actually has Buddy kicking the kit even more than usual!

A hard and heavy side from Buddy, and true to his reputation and the title of the LP, he comes out swinging!
