Woman Knows ... LP Discovery, 1979. Very Good+ ....
$14.99Just Sold Out!
Great late work by Lorez Alexandria – and one of the many worthwhile sides she cut for the Discovery label. The arrangements are by Jack Wilson and Charles Owens, and the music is by a small combo featuring the two of them, plus vibes, guitar, and rhythm. There's a nice moody version of ...

Later work from Ernie Andrews – a singer we mostly know from his early 60s albums on Dot and Capitol – standout west coast jazz sets that marked Ernie as one of the real up-and-comers on that scene. The format here is a bit mellower than those records, but still pretty darn great ... (Vocalists) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An early 80s repress of the first big Paul Desmond solo album of the 60s – and a standout set that's very much in the tradition of his best work on RCA! This rare side was cut for Warner Brothers during a time when they were taking a brief dip into jazz – and it's a rarely-heard set ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Sweet jazzy vocals from the west coast – and a heck of a great obscure record! Feathers is the team of Weaver Copeland and Mahmu Pearl – who sing together on the tunes in a mode that's somewhere between the work of Jackie & Roy, Bob Dorough, Nick DeCaro, and Dave Frishberg.

An early moment of genius from the young Clare Fischer – one of his first sets for a larger ensemble, and the start of years of great work to come! Previous Pacific Jazz sessions featured Fischer in a piano trio – but this album lets Clare loose on a host of his own inventive ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An unusual album from Arthur Louis – and a set that features some surprising guest work from Eric Clapton on guitar! Louis has this raspy style that's not far from Clapton's – and the presence of the famous guitar definitely helps shape the sound of the record too – giving it a ... (Rock) read moreCD
Early genius from vibist Red Norvo – the kind of record that really makes you get why he was so popular back in the day! The style here is more "sound" than jazz – a sublime blend of Norvo's airy vibes with the bass of Charles Mingus and guitar of Tal Farlow – both ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Marty Paich takes on a host of Broadway tunes from the 50s – but as always with his best work, the result is something quite far from its roots – an amazing batch of jazzy instrumentals that owes very little to the original conception of the tunes! Paich's got an incredible ear for ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

$0.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sparkling work from arranger Marty Paich – one of our favorite large group talents of the 50s! The album definitely gets a boot out of us – not just for its sexy, shower-situated cover on the front – but also for its great approach to the music, penned here by Paich in ways that ...
