Phil WoodsPhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine ... CD
Inner City, 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 16.95
An excellent album of funky electric jazz – and possibly the best one that Phil Woods cut with his European group! The quartet's a very hip group that's way hipper than its clunky name – with Gordon Beck on electric piano and organ, Daniel Humair on percussion and drums, and Henri ... read more CD

Phil WoodsWarm Woods ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most wonderful Phil Woods albums ever! No kidding – this is amazing! Woods played on lots of other records – and often in settings that made you wonder why people thought he was so great – but on this one, he's totally in the spotlight, fronting a mellow easy quartet ... read more CD

Phil Woods QuartetPhil Talks With Quill ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Rare as hens' teeth – and an incredible meeting of two vastly underrated alto talents! Phil Woods got plenty of opportunities to record as a leader in the 50s, but altoist Gene Quill was often buried in bigger groups – a fact that makes this album one of the few chances to really hear ... read more CD

New Phil Woods with Michel Legrand and his OrchestraImages ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful record – one in which Phil Woods blows alto solos over the arrangements of Michel Legrand – handled in the masterful style of Legrand's best jazzy soundtrack work, and in a way that lets Woods hit some of his best solos of the 70s! Legrand's always been great at this sort ... read more CD

Nate WooleySit In The Throne Of Friendship ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
Nate Wooley's got a great group here – a sextet who can easily move between more arranged moments and freer ones – at a level that recalls some of the best recent underground work coming from Chicago! Matt Moran makes a very strong appearance on the set on vibes – ringing out ... read more CD

Billy WootenEvening On The Canal ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $22.99
A rare live set from vibes legend Billy Wooten – recorded sometime in the mid 90s, but with a funky feel that's like his best music from the 70s! The Vida Bole Ensemble backs Billy up – giving him a tight large group push that makes for plenty of great rhythms – both funky drums ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Billy WootenLost Tapes ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $28.99
Rare material from Indianapolis vibesman Billy Wooten – previously unreleased tracks that start with his years in The Wooden Glass, then stretch out into even more obscure territory!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Billy Wooten with Richard Groove HolmesPlace To Start ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $28.99
A lost chapter of genius from vibes player Billy Wooten – and a great one too! The set's a rare outing with Hammond giant Groove Holmes – laid out nicely here in a quartet setting that offers up plenty of Billy's great vibes mixed with the organ – in a mode that's very different ... read more CD

Bernie WorrellElevation – The Upper Air – Solo Piano ... CD
MOD Technologies, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99 14.99
A really surprising change from keyboardist Bernie Worrell – not the funky electric work he cut with George Clinton, nor the darker sounds he did with Bill Laswell – but a sublime album of solo piano that shows a whole new side of Bernie's talents! The album is produced by Laswell, but ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cory Wright OutfitApples + Oranges ... CD
Singlespeed, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
The title's a great one for this project – especially if you understand the older reference of the saying – as the quintet manages to keep all the separate instruments at a level that's very distinct and individual, yet somehow creates a musical space of comparison as well! Cory Wright' ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tsuyoshi YamamotoIn Crowd (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $28.99
The title's a reference to a famous Ramsey Lewis live album of the 60s – one that's echoed nicely here by the trio of pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto! Like Ramsey's group of the decade before, Tsuyoshi's has a very even balance between piano, bass, and drums – with strong, soulful work by ... read more CD

Tsuyoshi YamamotoStar Dust (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $28.99
Japanese pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto pays tribute to the late Erroll Garner, by working in an expanded format that brings a bit of strings into support the core work of his trio!

YellowjacketsMirage A Trois ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
A classic early set from The Yellowjackets – just the kind of record that made them a mainstream fusion leader in the 80s! The style here takes off from 70s electric jazz with a bit more polish – not really smooth jazz, but a tight fusion of keyboards and guitars that are nicely ... read more CD

Lester YoungLester Young Memorial Album ... CD
Epic (Japan), Late 30s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
Some of Lester Young's first great moments of prominence – his late 30s recordings with the Count Basie Band, offered here in a well-done collection issued as a memorial after his death in 1959!

Chucho Zarzosa Y Su ConjuntoConcierto En Jazz (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $24.99
A live set from this obscure Mexican jazz combo – recorded in the early 60s, in a mode that's kind of a small combo take on an Ellington sound, but with some freer twists too! The approach is nicely offbeat – starting out familiar at first, but then opening up with some offbeat ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Denny ZeitlinCathexis (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Really magical work from a young Denny Zeitlin – one of a few key players in the second wave of jazz piano talent in the 60s – post-Bill Evans, and equally important as artists like Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett! Zeitlin's got the inventive sensibilities of both of those players at their ... read more CD

Tzadik, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
John Zorn really takes off here with some amazing sounds on the organ of St Paul's Chapel – an exploration of the large pipe organ variant of the instrument, really pushed to the limits in a way that recalls Zorn's early experiments on alto sax!

New John ZornLast Judgment ... CD
Tzadik, 2014. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Heady heady work from John Zorn – part of his Moonchild series of projects, and done with the same great group as the album In Sacred Blood! Like that set, there's a weird blend of jazz and spiritual modes going on here – a sound that's more forward-moving than some of Zorn's more ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
John Zorn/AbraxasPsychomagia ... CD
Tzadik, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Heavy guitar-based grooves from the Abraxas quartet – working here on a set of John Zorn compositions that hearken back to his more noise-filled days of a few decades ago! The group sports fierce electric work from Arak Bajakian and Eyal Maoz – alongside bass and drums – and the ... read more CD

Tzadik, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Sublime sounds composed by John Zorn – ostensibly in tribute to the great Walt Whitman, but actually some of the most tuneful, melodic music we've ever heard from Zorn himself! John doesn't play on the record – just composes, arranges, and conducts – and the music spins magically ... read more CD

Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... $16.99
A tightly swinging batch of late 30s jazz and nascent rhythm & blues numbers from the early 40s – the pivotal period in which veteran players of the grander swing orchestras of the years prior were paring down into smaller combo – and knocking out a grittier, more primal sound!
