David SanbornSanborn ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1976. Used ... $6.99
A damn great early moment from David Sanborn – a record that really shows the reedman at his best – working some tight solos over soulful backings in the same 70s manner as Tom Scott or Wilton Felder! Like both of those players, David's got the chops to step out in front of the ... read more CD

New David SanciousTransformation (The Speed Of Love) ... CD
Epic/Esoteric (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Cosmic fusion from David Sancious – one of his headphone-popping albums for Columbia from the 70s! The record has a really outerspace kind of approach – long tracks that build and layer sound, mostly electric instrumentation, with lots of keyboards, guitars, and percussion. He's again ... read more CD

Sten Sandell & Paal Nilsson LoveJacana ... CD
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong ... read more CD

New Pharoah SandersBlack Unity ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1971. Used ... $19.99
A righteous cover, a righteous title, and a righteous little session that features one long song that spans the entire length of the album! "Black Unity" may well be Pharoah Sanders' freest expression on record to date – but it's also still got all the hallmarks of his best moments ... read more CD

Pharoah SandersElevation (180 gram vinyl – 2x45 rpm discs) ... LP
Impulse/Soul Jazz (UK), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
A fantastic album by Pharoah Sanders – one of his later albums for Impulse, but one of his best! The record has Pharoah grooving in a strongly modal style – working up long passages of rhythm, piano, and percussion that really build on the promise delivered in earlier tunes on records ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Special pressing – 2LPs that play at 45rpm for amazing sound!)

Pharoah SandersKarma ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
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' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah SandersLove In Us All ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A tremendously joyous album from Pharoah Sanders – his last record for Impulse, and a rare thing of beauty! The album only features 2 long tracks, both of them great, and both of them showing Pharoah as more expressive, more imaginative, and more openly soulful than heard on his earlier ... read more CD

New Sam SandersMirror Mirror ... CD
Strata/180 Proof, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
An ultra-hip set of soul jazz from 70s Detroit – recorded back in the day by saxophonist Sam Sanders, but never issued at the time! The album's got this wonderfully warm, open sort of vibe – a quality that's kind of like an indie take on the CTI mode of the time, but much more relaxed ... read more CD

Santa Y Su GenteUrgente ... CD
RCA/Lion, 1974. New Copy ... $12.99
That's not Santa, as in Santa Claus – but a nickname for Santiago Salas, who works here in a very cool, jazzy mode! The album's got plenty of Latin roots, mixed with hipper 70s touches that include some key electric elements as well – all served up in a sparkling groove that's mighty ... read more CD

The first album we've ever heard from alto saxophonist Paolo Sapia – a very fresh-voiced talent with a great sense of soul! Most numbers here are quartet titles that really let Sapia shape his notes with a soulful swing on the instrument that we haven't heard from a new altoist like this in ... read more CD

Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint- ... $19.99
We have to admit we've always been somewhat dismissive of Merl Saunders 70s records, perhaps because of the hippy association we have with these bay area recordings. But ultimately there's at least a little bit of funk peeking through on any of his Fantasy recordings, which gets a nice helping ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
