Power Plant ... CD International Artists/Snapper (UK), 1967. Used ....
$9.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs ... (Rock) read moreCD
A bold score for a famous 70s astronaut film – penned by Jerry Goldsmith with almost the same sort of drama he might bring to a war thriller! The story itself is pretty dark – as the astronauts don't make it to space, but are forced into a Air Force base – and Goldsmith's music ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
Dramatic work from Jerry Goldsmith – a driving score to accompany this train-based action film from Italy. Just about the whole album's in the style of Goldsmith's typical action work – strings, sad themes, pounding forceful moments, and a few somber numbers – but there is one ...

A trio of very groovy soundtracks – all brought together on one CD! First up is The Last Run, scored by Jerry Goldsmith with some strong action themes that are very much in a Lalo Schifrin mode – mixing guitar, electric harpsichord, and strings with a harder-edged groove so that there's ...

Benny Golson's one of those players who never lets us down – and here, into his 80th year in on the planet, the man's still burning strongly and soulfully! The set's got a very solid, put-together sort of sound – the quality that's always made us seek out Golson albums of any vintage, ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An incredible, and oft-overlooked album from the great Benny Golson – and one of the few early albums that really point the way to his huge run of work for decades to come! The style here is a bit looser, and more open than some of Golson's previous albums – less of a focus on ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Beautiful work from the always-great Benny Golson – a wonderfully understated quartet session that's filled with plenty of long tracks, and sublime solo work from Golson! Benny's performed in many settings over the years – all of which are great – but we're recently quite partial ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Paul Gonsalves tells it the way it is – but in a hiply swinging sort of way that showcases his rising star as a leader in the 60s! The groove here is freed up from some of the earlier cliches in Gonsalves' work with larger groups – leaving a lot more room for his great sense of tone ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Two rare ones from the 60s London jazz scene – back to back on a single CD! First up is a tremendous little record – a rare meeting between Ellington tenorist Paul Gonsalves and Brit reed genius Tubby Hayes – a set that's cut very much in the best spirit of some of Hayes' free-thi ...

Unreleased boogie from Eleanor Goodman – a lost 80s session that's resurrected from rare studio tapes, and presented here for the first time ever!

A great live set from Dexter Gordon – recorded in the late 60s, but previously unreleased – and featuring a rare appearance from Bobby Timmons on piano! Gordon and Timmons are a rare treat together – and they're working here in the fully-extended, quite open-ended mode of the ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A warmly collaborative effort from Dexter Gordon – one of his most satisfying albums from the late 70s Columbia revival, thanks to the presence of a hip array of guest artists! The album was recorded both live and in the studio – but the feeling is relatively spontaneous throughout ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Not as striking as the word "Monster" in the title might make you think – but a nicely laidback European session, one that has Dexter blowing freely, with only bass and drum accompaniment. Tracks are mostly pretty long, and titles include "Tanya", "Born To Be ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Later genius from Dexter Gordon – an album recorded upon his return to the US in 1976, and done in a style that breaks the bounds of some of his sessions in Europe! Gordon seems to take new life in the recording – moving past the simple role of main soloist on familiar tunes, and ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An unusual set for both Dexter and Blue Note – first, because the set was recorded in Europe (not at Rudy Van Gelder's), and second because the tracks are all quite long! The album was recorded in Paris – and is cut in an open-ended format that's very much in the mode that Gordon would ... (Jazz) read moreCD

$10.99Out Of Stock
Not the soundtrack to Dexter Gordon's big film appearance in the 80s – but a smoking little live date recorded with trumpeter Benny Bailey in the mid 70s!

An incredible session of hardbop from early 60s LA – easily one of the hippest and hardest-hitting albums ever recorded for Contemporary Records! Joe Gordon passed away early in 1963, and this album's one of a rare few he made as a leader – but even if it was the only one, it might ... (Jazz) read moreCD

A whopping batch of tracks from this funky bass legend! Larry Graham had a huge influence on mainstream 70s funk – both with his group Graham Central Station, and later in his own solo work. This set's a great package that dips through Larry's legacy on both fronts – and it features a ... (Soul) read moreCD

Fairly ... CD Quantum Records (France), 1991. Used ....
A very cool mixing of acoustic modes – a set that features the famous jazz violin of Stephane Grappelli joining the rootsy group of mandolin man David Grisman! The mix of modes is quite haunting – and Grappelli's old school lines really do a lot in the company of Grisman's new acoustic ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Long, live improvisations between drummer Hamid Drake and reedman Frank Gratkowski – who plays alto, clarinet, and bass clarinet on the date! The record's got the sensitive sounds of the post-Dolphy generation – as Gratkowski really feels out the space of the duo with his searching ... (Jazz) read moreCD

The amazing debut of RB Greaves – a soul singer with a difference! RB struck big with this album on late 60s Atlantic Records – yet despite production at Muscle Shoals, and arrangements from Arif Mardin, the sound here is quite different than most of his contemporaries – and ... (Soul) read moreCD
What can we say? Most of the biggest hits, and many of the very best tracks cut in the prime of Al Green's career – which is to say some of the very best Memphis soul ever recorded! It's just one of these Greatest Hits packages of pure, inarguable perfection – with "Call Me" ... (Soul) read moreCD
Al Green and Willie Mitchell return for another soul treasure – delivering on the promise of 2003's wonderful I Can't Stop as strongly as we could have hoped for! This one may be credited to The Reverend Al Green rather than just Al Green – but that's the biggest difference between ... (Soul) read moreCD
A stunner! Al Green returns to the glorious, exuberant soul brilliance of the Hi Records years for his Blue Note debut – an amazing return to form that we could kick ourselves for not anticipating!

A damn good bit of beautiful soul from Memphis that stands as one of Al Green's most enduring classics!

A great early moment for pianist Benny Green – just the kind of record that got Green plenty of notice right at the start of the 90s! Benny's working here in a style that's deeply personal – especially so on the album's handful of solo numbers, but still quite strong even on the trio ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Nice one! Grant Green's albums from this time are all great – but this is the amazing live album with the version of "Down Here On the Ground" that was sampled by Tribe Called Quest! There's lots of other nice moments on the record, too, like very hard funky covers of "Let ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Although Grant Green has been getting a lot of attention lately for his heavy-duty funk work of the late 60s, it's the subtly beautiful work of the early 60's that first caught our attention years ago. From the start of his young career, Green was an amazing player who had developed a unique ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Soulful, spiritual work from guitarist Grant Green – an exploration of older tunes with a hip Blue Note 60s soul jazz approach!

Grant's First Stand – and a mighty one at that!

For this first date, Green's heard in ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A warmly melodic session from Blue Note's greatest guitarist!

Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall!
