Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Maybe the greatest work we've heard so far from Chicago bassist Jason Roebke – a key player on so many sessions for other jazzmen in recent years, but a hell of a visionary leader on his own!

Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $9.99
A really unique little chapter in the career of Shorty Rogers – and a near-lost record that's one of his best from the 60s! As you might guess from the title, the set was recorded as a sort of "stereo dynamics" album – post-bachelor pad, but in a mode that was very concerned ... read more CD

George RussellJazz Workshop ... CD
RCA/Koch, 1956. Used ... $16.99
A nice little set from Russell – not as arch-modern as some of his later work, with strong playing in kind of that east coast chamber jazz mode that you'd find in some of the other RCA sides of the time. Players include Art Farmer, Hal McKusick, Bill Evans, Barry Galbraith, and Joe Harris ... read more CD

New Pee Wee RussellAsk Me Now! ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Emanem (UK), 1976. Used ... $11.99
One of the few solo albums ever cut by trombonist Paul Rutherford – an important talent on the British jazz scene of the 70s, and every bit as creative a player on his instrument as Albert Mangelsdorff or George Lewis!

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $13.99
Aaron Sachs is best known as a clarinet player, but he also serves up some mighty mean tenor sax on this rare date for Bethlehem – work on the horn that really makes the record a standout!

Akira Sakata is a player who's never been known to hold back – but he sounds especially powerful here in the company of Paal Nilssen Love on drums and Johan Berthling on bass – two younger players who seem to inspire Sakata to a sort of frenzied height that we haven't heard this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
