New Albert AylerNew Grass ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the last albums that Ayler ever recorded – and one of his most memorable! The record shows Ayler at the crossroads, filled with emotion and meaning, struggling to convey his message to a lager audience. At times, he takes a strange soul/jazz format to do so, and has tracks featuring ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Albert AylerReevaluations – The Impulse Years ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of Ayler's late work for Impulse – some of his most unusual sides ever cut to wax, and very different from his work on labels like ESP. The general feel is one of searching – as Ayler works in a number of different modes to try to reach new audiences, and hit new ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gato BarbieriChapter Three – Viva Emiliano Zapata ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
Amazing work from Gato Barbieri's legendary exploration of Latin American sounds for Impulse Records – a set that's heavy on Cuban influences, thanks to arrangements from the mighty Chico O'Farrill! The sound is sublime – a bit fuller than some of Gato's other albums in the run, but ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gato BarbieriChapter Two – Hasta Siempre ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
Chapter 2 of Gato's Latin American trilogy – and like the first, a set of tracks that features Gato's firey sax work engaging a complex series of Latin rhythms.

Duke Ellington's drummer from the 50's leads a thunderous octet that includes Harry Edison on trumpet, Sam Most on alto, and Jim Cook on tenor.

Art Blakey, without any Jazz Messengers – but still coming through loud and clear, thanks to help from a unique group that features Sonny Stitt on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Art Davis on bass! The album's still got all the hardbop charm of Blakey's best Blue Note dates, but also feels ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Dee Dee Bridgewater's greatest jazz albums, and a very important record in her career – as it marked a shift back to straight jazz vocals, after years of working in a more R&B inflected mode.

If you read these pages often enough, you'll know that we're big fans of recordings made by American expatriot players while living in Europe during the 60's.

A pretty strange album of "hip" fairytales and fables, recorded by jazz DJ/hipster Al Jazzbo Collins, alongside a group featuring Steve Allen, Hal Blaine, and Terry Gibbs.

Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
Groovin' set of tracks that has the lady organist in two settings – one with her trio with Jimmy Cobb on drums, the other with a hard swingin' big band led by Oliver Nelson.

Tom ScottRural Still Life ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
A fantastic early album fromTom Scott – cut when he was still a teenager, and a record that combines some sonic adventurousness with hard bop leaning sounds!

Growing brilliance from the young Archie Shepp – a record that's not just about Archie's own amazing work on the tenor, but also his keen modern vision as a leader!

Head to head blowing from Sonny Sitt and Paul Gonsalves – just the kind of twin-horn performance that Stitt was famous for in his live battle days, and one that also reminds us that Gonsalves can be a very loose swinger when he wants to be!
