Trip, 1958. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of Max's real killers from the late 50s!

Impulse, 1961. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $12.99
Max Roach's masterpiece! This record is one of his most perfectly realized visions – and it's a marvelous album that combines politics and modern jazz, yet still manages to swing!

Max RoachSpeak, Brother, Speak ... LP
Fantasy, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Solidly righteous jazz from the Max Roach of the 60s – recorded at a time when the player was really breaking away from his straighter hardbop roots, and delving deeper into more freely soulful jazz expression!

Max Roach (with Andy Bey)Members Don't Get Weary ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Good+ ... $13.99
Fantastic stuff, and a record that was virtually the blueprint for spiritual soul jazz in the 70s! Although Max Roach first rose to fame during the bop years, by the time of this set he'd really stretched out a lot – moving past initial righteous projects in the Civil Rights era, to even ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Alpha/SeriE.WOC (Belgium), 1970. New Copy ... $26.99
Qui est Babs Robert? Turns out he's a hell of a saxophonist from the Belgian scene at the start of the 70s – an amazingly soulful player who's got just the right sort of spiritual vibe to live up to the image on the cover! Babs plays alto, tenor, and even a bit of electric tenor too – ... read more CD

One of the rarest of Howard's excellent sides for Capitol in the 60s – and one of the grooviest too!

A fantastic album from one of the greatest arrangers of the 50s! Pete Rugolo first came into prominence with Stan Kenton's group of the late 40s/early 50s – and he had a penchant for creating arrangements that dipped heavily into modernism, but never forgot to swing. He went on to do some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often.

Howard RumseyHoward Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars Vol 6 ... LP
Contemporary, 1955. Very Good- ... $11.99
Another standout set from Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars – the kind of group who should have been a gimmicky way to promote his nightclub, but who actually managed to cut some of the best LA records of the time!

Contemporary, 1956. Very Good+ ... $4.99
An obscure later entry in the Lighthouse All Stars series on Contemporary – but a great one too – and a set that's less less overflowing with big name players, than a well-conceived small group session! Rumsey's leading the sextet on bass, but other players are even more noteworthy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
