Emil RichardsSpirit of 1976 ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Excellent groovy jazz from the great Emil Richards! The legendary LA vibist is caught live at Donte's – and is playing with Dave Makay on piano and percussion, as well as a bunch of other LA hipsters. The general groove is more jazz oriented than Emil's other records, but still very nice. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny RichardsSomething Else Again (aka Something Else By Johnny Richards) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $0.99
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s!

Jerome RichardsonMidnight Oil ... LP
Prestige, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the few 50s albums as a leader from reedman Jerome Richardson – a hell of a player who made so many other folks' records sound great! Richardson plays both tenor and flute on the album – the latter of which is a real surprise, as it's got a moodier quality than on some of his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Very heady sounds from this hip French trio – one who go further than even the usual avant piano combo, by using a prepared version of the instrument for part of the set!

Elektra (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99

Jim RotondiBlues For Brother Ray ... CD
Posi tone, 2009. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
A tribute to Ray Charles, but played by a hard-swinging, and mighty soulful ensemble – one that features Eric Alexander on tenor and Mike LeDonne on Hammond B-3!

Charlie RouseYeah! ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Thelonious Monk's legendary tenorist steps out on his own in this fantastic (and rare) hardbop session from the early 60s!
