Impulse, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the last albums that Ayler ever recorded – and one of his most memorable!

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.

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.

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.

New Chico HamiltonChic Chic Chico ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
Very very cool set of weird grooves from Chico Hamilton. Some tracks are Latiny, others have lots of weird guitar, and they're all kind of spacey, but not exactly free. This period of Chico's is one of his weirdest, and it's kind of hard to figure out where he was heading, but the trip to that ... (Jazz) 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 ...
