Impro (France), 1979. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The set's billed as a "tribute to Charlie Parker", but it's got a heck of a lot more to offer than that – as the album's one of the best of Archie Shepp's late 70s efforts, and has a gentle soulfulness that goes way beyond just duplicating Bird!

New Jimmy SmithRoot Down ... LP
Verve, 1972. Good ... $19.99
Once an overlooked late Verve album, now a solid classic – and easily one of the funkiest albums ever from organist Jimmy Smith! The groove here is far different than the more familiar Jimmy Smith Verve sessions of the 60s – and the tracks open up in a really extended mode – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
A really unusual little record for Jimmy Smith – and a set that actually features a bit of singing alongside his usual work on the Hammond!

Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
A real treasure, and a record that may well be our favorite Jimmy Smith album for Verve – a masterful meeting of his smoking Hammond work with some swingingly sophisticated arrangements by Oliver Nelson and Claus Ogerman!

Johnny Hammond SmithGetting Up ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good- ... $13.99
A real sleeper – but a great gem from Johnny Hammond! The album was cut during a time when Hammond was picking a page from the book of Groove Holmes – tightening up the tracks a bit, and going for a punchy sound that would hit big with the crossover and jukebox crowd. The tracks are ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1969. Very Good- ... $11.99
A sweetly funky set from Johnny Hammond Smith – a date done right at the start of the jazz funk era on Prestige – and one that marks a nicely heavy change in Johnny's sound!

An overlooked 50s set from guitarist Johnny Smith – one that features a piano added into his trio, hence the "foursome" in the title!

Warwick, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obscure early Johnny Hammond album that, while not his best, is a nice rare addition to his catalog.
