New John HandyCarnival ... LP
Impulse, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-blown set from alto saxophonist John Handy – recorded with larger arrangements at a time when Impulse Records was trying to match the sounds of CTI, but done in a way that still holds onto all the sharp soul of Handy's earlier years! The format's nice and full – with lots of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used ... $4.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy ... (Vocalists) read more CD

New Johnny HartmanVoice That Is ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
At the time of this album, Johnny Hartman definitely was the voice that is – a singer with a new level of maturity for the 60s, and a voice that's far more masculine than the geeky look of the photo on the cover! Hartman's sound here is smooth and warm, but never in a too-commercial way ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

The Hawk, in prime late form, lays down some beautiful tenor solos over gentle bossa nova accompaniment – working in a mode that's much more satisfying than just a "classic player meets bossa" session, angularly crafting the solos with that dark edge that he had in all of his later ...

A beautiful album that we'd rank as one of Freddie Hubbard's greatest recordings ever – a truly sublime set that's quite different than his Blue Note work of the 60s, and which really shows him emerging as a major talent on the trumpet!

Brilliant work by Jamal – and one of his first albums to feature electric piano!
