Pharoah SandersElevation (180 gram vinyl – 2x45 rpm discs) ... LP
Impulse/Soul Jazz (UK), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $26.99
A fantastic album by Pharoah Sanders – one of his later albums for Impulse, but one of his best! The record has Pharoah grooving in a strongly modal style – working up long passages of rhythm, piano, and percussion that really build on the promise delivered in earlier tunes on records like Jewels Of Thought and Tauhid – that strong sense of flow that was possibly Sanders' greatest contribution to the world of spiritual jazz – over and above his own work on tenor sax! The tunes never go too far out, and have a really joyous feel that we totally love – opening Pharoah up with that bright spirit that makes some of his 70s work so great, really pushing him past the darkness of the immediate post-Coltrane years. Other players include Joe Bonner on piano, Calvin Hill on bass, Michael White on violin, and Michael Carvin on drums – and titles include the tremendous track "Greeting To Saud", plus "Elevation", "Spiritual Blessing", "Ore Se Re", and "The Gathering".

Michael WhiteSpirit Dance (180 gram vinyl – 2x45 rpm discs) ... LP
Impulse/Soul Jazz (UK), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $26.99
One of the killer albums that Michael White cut for Impulse Records in the early 70 – a sweet set of spiritual jazz that took his instrument to a whole new level! Normally, the violin isn't an instrument we love in jazz, but White really transforms it here – playing it with a stretched-out, spiritual sound that's almost like a saxophone – really hitting a fresh sound that's mighty nice. Other instrumentation includes a nicely organic blend of piano from Ed Kelly, bass from Ray Drummond, and percussion and flutes from Baba Omson – often building in the way you'd get with a Pharoah Sanders album, but with a gentler, more personal sound. There's a bit of vocals at points from Makeda & Wanika King – and tracks include "The Tenth Pyramid", "Spirit Dance", "John Coltrane Was Here", and "Unlocking The Twelfth House".

New JonwayneRap Album One (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy 2 LPs .... Out Of Stock
Stones Throw's innovative upstart Jonwayne steps up big time with Rap Album One – which is, technically his first proper above ground rap album after a sprawling limited edition instrumentals release and some now hard-to-find cassettes – and it more than lives up to promise! When we first heard of him, it was for his production finesse – but it turns he's got a charismatic mic presence that's just as strong, and suits his beats masterfully. Includes "After The Calm", "You Can Love Me When I'm Dead", "Find Me In The Future", "The Come Up Pt 1" feat Scoop Deville, "The Come Up Pt 2", "Yung Grammer", "Reflection", "How To Be A Gemini", "Black Magic", "Sandals" and more.

New VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... Out Of Stock
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

Big Bill BroonzyDo That Guitar Rag 1928 to 1935 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99
Bill Broonzy's a singer who recorded often in later years – but it's these early recordings that really won his fame – spare 78rpm sides that are full of dextrous guitar work that has plenty of jazzy inflections! Bill's vocals have a bit of jazz, too – and these sides are a great example of the blurring of lines between blues and jazz in the early days – or, perhaps, of the way that blues constantly came along and had something to offer jazz just when it needed it most. Whatever the case, though, the set's a wonderful batch of gems from Broonzy – most recorded right at the start of the 30s, with titles that include "Terrible Operation Blues", "Big Bill Blues", "Grandma's Farm", "Guitar Rag", "Pussy Cat Blues", "Mr Conductor Man", and "Down In The Basement".

Donald ByrdRoyal Flush (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1961. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $49.99
One of the seminal sides cut by Donald Byrd in his partnership with Pepper Adams – a high-up, low-down set that's a smoker all the way through! Byrd's brightness on trumpet is nicely matched by Adams' fluid work on baritone sax – and the pair are wonderfully supported by a rhythm trio that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all players who can hit a sock-hard groove one minute, then let loose with a lyrical flourish the next. The approach of the record is tightly soulful, with loads of great changes – and some surprising dark edges that really add in a whole new dimension to the Donald Byrd sound of the time. Titles include "Shangri-La", "Jorgies", "Hush", "6 M's", and the moody "Requiem"! LP, Vinyl record album

Spare solo sounds from Al Cisneros – known for his work in the group's Sleep and Om, but working here in some really cool stretched-out, drone-based guitar territory! Both sides are very similar, and very cyclical – a slight spooky undercurrent, almost like a moodier moment in an 80s horror score – although since both tracks are over 7 minutes long, the vibe is more stretched out! LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny ClarkDial S For Sonny (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP

Could there be a more classic Blue Note session? From the cover, to the title, to the hardbopping grooves of the set, this Sonny Clark late 50s smoker is one of the label's best! Clark's working here at the height of his powers – leading an all-star group that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Hank Mobley on tenor, Wilbur Ware on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – all coming together magically on open-ended tunes that tighten up from the blowing session format, and really send the groove home! Plus, Sonny's writing is also great – as the set's got a number of great originals by Clark – like "Bootin' It", "Sonny's Mood", "Shoutin On A Riff", and "Dial S For Sonny". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneColtrane Jazz (2 x 45rpm 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/ORG, 1960. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $44.99 49.98
The title may be a simple one, but the record really marks a key point in John Coltrane's development – an embrace of the newer freedoms allowed to him at Atlantic Records, but in a way that's a bit more subtle than some of his other work for the label! At one level, the record moves at the same groove as Trane's later Prestige years – with rhythm mostly from Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – carving out some sharp lines for Coltrane to cascade over on tenor sax. Yet there's also a new sense of darkness here too – one that moves into edgier territory, and which isn't nearly as settled in as before. These qualities sneak out of both original numbers like "Harmonique", "Fifth House", and "Like Sonny" – as well as standards like "My Shining Hour" and "Little Old Lady". And they really come to the forefront on the classic "Village Blues" – the one track that features the new Coltrane group of McCoy Tyner, Steve Davis, and Elvin Jones! LP, Vinyl record album
(Wonderful pressing – two very heavy pieces of vinyl, both of which spin at 45rpm for added fidelity!)

Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige/OJC, 1951. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99 15.98
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, in a way that allows them to break past the shorter, more urgent sound of the 78rpm single! Rollins is young, but a surprisingly strong voice on the set – and Jackie McLean's alto is incredibly sharp at this point, with strong hints of the genius to come later in the decade. The rest of the lineup includes Walter Bishop on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and tracks include Miles' classic version of "It's Only A Paper Moon", plus "Denial", "Out Of The Blue", "Dig", and "Bluing".

Kenny DorhamAfro-Cuban (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1955. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $49.99
A completely unique little session – and a record that's every bit as musically striking as you might guess from its title and cover! The date's a rare Latin-tinged one for trumpeter Kenny Dorham – a record that takes his usually smooth sound and sets it up against octet backings with horns from JJ Johnson on trombone, Cecil Payned on baritone sax, and Hank Mobley on tenor – plus piano from Horace Silver, bass from Oscar Pettiford, and drums from Art Blakey – plus added congas from Patato Valdes! The expanded group plays with a great sense of power – really pushing Kenny's sound tremendously – and although the album also features a few tracks by a smaller group with less percussion, these also have a bit of a Latin/exotic tinge too. Titles include "Basheer's Dream", "Lotus Flower", "KD's Motion", "Venita's Dance", "Minor's Holiday", "La Villa", and "Afrodisia". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny DorhamUna Mas (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $49.99
An excellent groover from Kenny Dorham – possibly one of his best ever albums for Blue Note – a record that shows how much he was pushing past his bop roots in his later years! The tracks are extremely long, and done with a complexity in rhythms that mixes Latin elements with hardbop modes – all set up in a style that really stretches out, and drives Dorham's trumpet with a fire he'd hardly had before. The rest of the group is super-sharp – key young players who really help keep an edge the the whole thing – with Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Henderson on tenor, Butch Warren on bass and Tony Williams drums. Tracks are all long, incredible Dorham originals – "Una Mas" fills up side one, and "Straight Ahead" and "Sao Paulo" cover the flip. Also includes a bonus track, a sweet warm take of "If Ever I Would Leave You". LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis FullerOpener (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1957. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $49.99
An obscure little groover from Curtis Fuller – and one of his hardest blowing sessions for Blue Note! Unlike some of the other Fuller sessions, which can have a slightly softer, rounder sound overall – this one's a much more in-the-pocket sort of Blue Note hardbop date – one that really cooks magically with contributions from Hank Mobley on tenor, Bobby Timmons on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Fuller's trombone is very hard-edged in this setting – in the same territory of his work with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, but with some slightly lyrical overtones too. Titles include a great reading of Oscar Pettiford's "Oscalypso", plus Fuller's own "Lizzy's Bounce" and "Hugore" – and the tunes "A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening" and "Here's To My Lady".

He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

Incredible stuff – the only full length LP recorded by Gil Melle for Blue Note – after a series of groundbreaking 10" sessions during the early 50s! The album's got a sound that's almost impossible to describe – bringing Melle's modern baritone sax work into play with a lightly rhythmic group that includes Eddie Bert on trombone, Joe Cinderella on guitar, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums. The use of baritone and trombone next to guitar is especially striking – and even more so when matched by the inventively sprightly rhythms of Pettiford and Thigpen – making for a sound that's sublime and moving, with an otherworldly approach that's beyond description! Tracks include "Nice Question", "Set Break", "Weird Valley", and "Long Ago & Far Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Horace ParlanHappy Frame Of Mind (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963/1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $49.99
Wicked work by pianist Horace Parlan – and one of his most stunning Blue Note sessions ever! The album was first recorded in 1963, but then kept on the shelf for years – seeing only brief release as part of a Booker Ervin package in the late 70s, and finally coming out with the proper cover and lineup at some point in the 80s! Why Blue Note waited so long is a mystery, because the album's a gem throughout – almost more important, and more starkly modern than any of Parlan's other work for the label. Booker Ervin leads the frontline on tenor, alongside Johnny Coles on trumpet, Grant Green on guitar, and the rhythm section of Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Parlan's choice of material is fantastic – with a number of Africanist tracks that feature unique rhythmic patterns that really push the soloists! Titles include "A Tune For Richard", "Dexi", "Home Is Africa", "Kucheza Blues", and "Back From The Gig". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note/Music Matters, 1961. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $49.99
A darkly-grooving killer from pianist Horace Parlan – and one of our favorite Blue Note albums ever! Although Parlan's always a great player on other sides for the label, this album has him stepping out with an extra edge that's really amazing – working with brothers Tommy and Stanley Turrentine to craft some tunes that roll with the propulsive energy of the best Blue Note hardbop sides, but which also have some edgier moments, and almost point the way towards some of the new thing experiments that would transform the work of Jackie McLean! All players are still quite straight, but they've got a way of putting together tones and textures that's really wonderful – heard to famous effect on the album's early version of Booker Ervin's track "Skoochie" – but soaring all the way through on titles that include "On The Spur Of The Moment", "Ray C", "Al's Tune", and "Pyramid".

Subliminal Sounds (Sweden), 1978. New Copy .... $22.99
Wild stuff – a very weird little EP from this unusual 70s group – a quartet who are almost more soulful funk than the kind of psych or folk you usually hear on small indie records like this! The female singer really lives up to her image on the cover – stepping out with this full vocal approach that's trying for soul, but which is maybe more in a Grace Slick sort of school overall – although warmed up nicely around the edges by the band's jazzy inflections in the rhythms and keyboards. All tunes are pretty offbeat, and a bit hard to peg – but these guys definitely have a sound that's all their own! Titles include "What You Do To Me", "Gypsies From The Diamond Star", "Aphrodisiac", "The Rings Of Saturn", and "Swept Away". Note: Plays at 45rpm! LP, Vinyl record album

One of Stanley Turrentine's best albums ever – but a record that was recorded in 1962, yet only released by Blue Note 20 years later! The set's a great example of the sheer raw power that Stan had in his tone before it got watered down by his pop-jazz recordings of the later 60s – a sharp edge and way of phrasing that's simply amazing – filled with soulful tradition, yet never prone to any of the cliches of contemporaries like David Newman or Don Wilkerson. The group here is a great one too – a sextet with the amazing Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, punching up some very sharp lines next to stan – plus Kenny Burrell on guitar, Sonny Clark on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Al Harewood on drums. Titles are a killer batch of spiritual-oriented soul jazz numbers like "Brother Tom", "Jubilee Shout", "My Ship", "Cotton Walk", and "You Said It". LP, Vinyl record album

Honest Jons (UK), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s. New Copy 4 LPs .... $59.99
An amazing portrait of Iran in the years before WWII – pulled from rare 78rpm recordings which are remastered here beautifully, to present some stunning sounds we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a really unique flavor to most of this music – sounds that lie at the crossroads of the east, and which spring out with some surprisingly modern inflections, while still coming across with a very simple, timeless appeal too. Most of the instrumentation is on percussion and regional stringed instruments, and the vocals can be richly expressive – often with inflections and range that far surpass the instrumentation on the discs. As with the other Honest Jons collections of global 78rpm material, the whole thing is beautifully put together – from the sound quality, to the notes, to the very hefty selection of tracks. Titles include work by Iran Od Dowleh Helen, Seyyed Hoseyn Taherzadeh, Akhtar, Parvaneh, Ebrahim, Javad Badi'Zadeh, and many others. LP, Vinyl record album

The album's nearly perfect – and features Brooks' edgey tenor set in an all star group that includes Duke Jordan on piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Sam Jones on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Brooks had blown on other Blue Note sessions before, but here, working as a leader, his sound is tremendous – vaguely to the left of center of some of his other tenor counterparts on the label, but with an equally impeccable approach to soul and rhythm. Titles include "Miss Hazel", "Good Old Soul", "Up Tight's Creek", and "Theme For Doris". LP, Vinyl record album
(Amazing reissue pressing – done as a 2LP set, with heavy vinyl and cover, and played at 45rpm speed for extra-high fidelity!)

New Ben Webster & Oscar PetersonBen Webster Meets Oscar Peterson (2 x 45rpm LP pressing) ... LP
Verve/Analogue Productions, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP .... Just Sold Out!
Beautifully laidback blowing from the great Ben Webster – captured here in perfect late 50s formation, with wonderful rhythm support from the Oscar Peterson Trio! The tunes aren't super-long, but still have a relatively open feel – possibly improvised in the studio, with a mellow but deeply soulful sound throughout, thanks to Webster's massive tone on the tenor sax. Peterson's on piano, and other players include Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and titles include "The Touch Of Your Lips", "When Your Lover Has Gone", "Bye Bye Blackbird", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning", "Sunday", and "This Can't Be Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(In great shape – and numbered too!)

New John CarpenterHalloween (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Varese/Mondo, 1979. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An archetypal soundtrack for the 70s – one that reinvented the sound of horror for a whole new generation, thanks to some beautifully spare piano and synthesizer numbers from director John Carpenter! The main theme here should be enough – a sly little scary tune that really sets the scene – but other tracks are pretty great too, and feature lots more spare keyboard bits that are completely mindblowing. Titles include "Halloween", "Laurie's Theme", "Meyer's House", "Michael Kills Judith", "Loomis & Shape's Car", and "Better Check The Kids". Plus, this special 2LP version features the most complete vinyl release of the score – 28 titles on two vinyl discs that both spin at 45rpm for great fidelity! LP, Vinyl record album

New Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie (aka Dizzy Gillespie & His Operatic Strings Orchestra) ... LP
Everest, 1952. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dizzy and strings – a surprisingly great combination! Although it was Charlie Parker who first made famous the modernist "jazz with strings" approach, Dizzy does wonderfully here in the format – working in similar fashion with edgey backing from the "Operatic String Orchestra" in sessions recorded in Paris in the early 50s! The material was originally only issued as a number of separate 78rpm singles, but is brought together here with full notes and a few bonus tracks – making for a wonderful album that documents this really under-represented part of Dizzy's career. The solos are warm, but edgey – blown over the top of backings that shimmer with rich colors, but have a slightly modern bent. Titles include "The Very Thought Of You", "Jalousie", "Sweet & Lovely", and "The Man I Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing.)

New Lee MorganCandy (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1957. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very different album for Lee Morgan – especially in comparison with his other early sessions! The record is a gentle batch of ballads and standards, played by Morgan with a quartet that includes Sonny Clark on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all beautifully poised to help Lee hit just the right notes in the set. The album's a crucial one, in that it gives Lee Morgan a chance to show off a warmer, mellower, and more introspective style – after first coming onto the scene as a stormer on his first few sessions. The whole thing's great, and a really important part of Morgan's catalog – and an album that was sadly "lost" in the Blue Note catalog for years, due to a too-short initial release! Titles include "Candy", "Who Do You Love, I Hope", "All The Way", and "Since I Fell For You". LP, Vinyl record album

New NirvanaIn Utero (2013 mix) (2LP 180 gram vinyl – with download) ... LP
DGC, 1993. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nirvana's final album – one that's as poetic as it is heavy, and as beautiful as it is brutal! In Utero's legacy gets greater and greater over the years, not only because its mastermind extinguished himself not too long after its release, but more than that, it's simply one of the greatest rock albums of its time. Angry, fed up, yet oddly righteous in its angst, in a way that makes it easy to get into despite all the raw nerve anguish. Includes"Serve The Servents", "Scentless Apprentice", "Heart-Shaped Box", "Rape Me", "Dumb", "Very Ape", "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter", "All Apologies" and the rest. This is the 2013 direct metal mastered version, sourced from the analog tapes. All of which is to say it sounds TREMENDOUS on high quality vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album

New Orgasmo SonoreOmaggio A Bruno Nicolai Ed Alle Sue Musiche Per Il Cinema Giallo ... LP
Cineploit (Austria), 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the coolest record ever from this always-great group – one of the best contemporary acts to really get the sound of vintage soundtracks right – working here in a special package that features unusual vinyl, a great cover, and some amazing music within! The tunes are all from older Italian films of the 70s, all composed by the great Bruno Nicolai – but served up here by Orgasmo Sonore in this sublime blend of keyboards, strings, and other great elements – all with the feel of some vintage Ennio Morricone production! The LP plays at 45rpm, for extra-great fidelity – but it still features a total of six tracks that include "Panic In The Elevator", "Magico Incontro", "Sabba", "La Dama Rossa Uccide Sette Volte", "Gatti Rossi In Un Labirinto Di Vetro", and "La Coda Dello Scorpione".

New Roscoe Mitchell/Tony Marsh/John EdwardsImprovisations (180 gram pressing) ... LP
OTOroku (UK), 2013. New Copy 2 LPs .... Out Of Stock
Beautifully-blown work from Roscoe Mitchell – some of the loosest sides we've heard from him in years – and some of the most striking, too! The tracks are all long improvisations done with drummer Tony Marsh and bassist John Edwards – but they've got a really respectful approach that has Mitchell's reed lines very much out front in the mix – this bold sax and flute voice that's holding incredibly strong after all these years – freed from some of the more academic modes that have kept Roscoe a bit muted on other recordings, with the rich, organic quality we loved so much in his earliest years with the AACM. 2LP set spins at 45rpm, for really great fidelity – and vinyl is nice and heavy!

New Nick WaterhouseHolly ... LP
Innovative Leisure, 2014. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Damn deep grooves from Nick Waterhouse – a singer we've always liked a lot, and one who really seems to sharpen his edge here with some great elements from older R&B! Nick's already proved himself to be one heck of a soulful vocalist – and this time around he picks up more grit from the pre-soul years – including some excellent twangy guitar, tippling piano, and snapping drums – all of which bring out some very blue elements in the lyrics. The overall feel is somewhere in the territory of the 50s 78rpm generation – particularly that of the indie labels that recorded their own styles of R&B – and the production follows nicely, with a very stripped-down feel. Nick's never too overdone – never tries to be too raunchy or over the top – just hits this great blend of soul, blues, and R&B in a very understated mode. Titles include "Sleeping Pills", "Holly", "Hands On The Clock", "High Tiding", "It No 3", and "Let It Come Down". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dexter GordonSwingin' Affair (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1962. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
An amazingly simple – but amazingly satisfying session from Dexter Gordon! The group's a totally solid quartet with Sonny Clark on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the groove is right in the pocket with a solid solid soulful feel that you don't always get on Gordon's other Blue Note albums! There's a simple elegance here that's really beautiful – Gordon at his post-bop best, but without any of the over-extended modes of his too-long solo years – a mix that's really rare, and carried off impeccably for this set. The record starts with the amazing "Soy Califa", a nice hardbop number with a good Latiny feel, then slides into lots of other nice ones like "McSplivens", "The Backbone", and "Don't Explain".

15 early recordings by this legendary group – a southern string ensemble who nicely skirted the space between early blues and hillbilly music – heard here on a set of vintage 78rpm recordings done for the Okeh label! The package presents tracks recorded in February and June of 1930 – laid out in chronological order, and presented here with surprisingly great sound after all these years. The use of fiddle alone is worth the price of admission – especially amidst the rootsier elements in the rhythms – and titles include "Driving That Thing", "Alberta Blues", "The Sheik Waltz", "The Jazz Fiddler", "Jake Leg Blues", "Back To Mississippi", and "We Are Both Feeling Good Right Now".

New Hank MobleyHank Mobley Quartet (Blue Note 5066) (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1955. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Great early material from Hank Mobley – a record that's practically a Jazz Messengers album, given the lineup – and which comes across with the fire and power of that classic group at their start! Mobley's tenor is set tightly in a combo that includes Horace Silver on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – just like an early Jazz Messengers group, but without trumpet – and really kicking strongly on the rhythm tip. Mobley's tenor gets some great focus out front – amazing linest hat already show the young Hank as one of the freshest tenor voices of his generation. Titles include "Hank's Prank", "Walkin The Fence", "Just Coolin", and "Avila & Tequila". Also features bonus alternate takes of "Hank's Prank" and "Walkin The Fence". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note/Music Matters, 1957. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... Out Of Stock
An obscure late 50s set from the mighty Hank Mobley – and like all of the tenorist's sides for Blue Note, an essential gem that tops most work by the rest of his contemporaries! The setting here is a really warm and lyrical one – as Mobley's playing with Horace Silver on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, Art Blakey on drums, and the great Art Farmer on trumpet – making one of his rare (and appreciated!) Blue Note appearances on the set! The tracks have a good mixture of hardbop and more lyrical overtones – in a manner that's similar to Silver's work, but with a little more gutbucket soloing on tenor from Mobley. Titles include "Base On Balls", "Fin De L'Affaire", "Funk In Deep Freeze", and "Startin From Scratch". LP, Vinyl record album

New Ike QuebecEasy Living (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1962/1987. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... Out Of Stock
A killer set of work from this tremendous tenorist – rare sides, but titles that stand with his best classics from the time! Lost material that Ike Quebec recorded for Blue Note in the early 60s, but which wasn't issued until the 80s. A few of the tracks on the album were issued on the rare short-lived 1981 album Congo Lament, but this is the first time the tracks were brought together for the first time. Half of the material features a quartet with Quebec on tenor, Sonny Clark on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and the other half feature a larger group with Stanley Turrentine and Bennie Green added in. Overall, the larger group titles are a lot harder grooving than some of Quebec's other work – especially the titles "Congo Lament" and "Que's Pill". Other tracks have a nice mellow easy feel, with great gutsy tenor work from the master! Titles include "Easy Living", "Nancy", and "I've Got A Crush On You". LP, Vinyl record album
