Argo, 1960. Very Good ... $16.99
An excellent early album by one of the greatest jazz vocalists of all time!

A landmark album from pianist Michael Garrick – one of the sublime recordings he made with vocalist Norma Winstone in the late 60s and early 70s!

Although he's made many snoozy records in his time, the early Al Grey albums for Argo are pretty hard swingin', and have a lot of nice surprises.

New Three SoulsSoul Sounds ... LP
Argo, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tight little organ/sax combo led by Chicago alto player Sonny Cox. The groove is tight and hot, like you might have heard in a lounge in this city in the early 60's (and still can on a good night, if you're lucky).
