Monty Alexander 7 —
Jamento ... LP Pablo, 1978. Used ....
$1.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice mellow fusion from Monty, recorded in LA with a group that includes Ernest Ranglin on guitar, plus Andy Simpkins on bass, and added drums and percussion from 4 other players. There's a bit of steel drums on the record, in the style that Alexander was using on other MPS sides from the time ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The title's not a hokey TV reference or anything like that – but a strong reminder that the Count Basie group was still very much in their prime during the 1970s, thanks especially to the recording talents that the Pablo label brought to records like this! Most of the work here was arranged ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a cut corner, and a spot of old tape on the spine.)
A beautiful pairing of these two legendary pianists – heard late in the Basie career, in a setting that lets both of them open up nicely! Basie also plays a bit of organ, too. ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A live set recorded very much in a classic Verve mode – actually produced by Benny himself, and recorded in Tokyo in 1977 with a small group that includes Budd Johnson, Cecil Payne, Cat Anderson, Nat Pierce, and Joe Newman. Tracks are long, and titles include "Them There Eyes", ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington —
Harlem ... LP Pablo, 1964. Very Good+ ....
Simple, unfettered guitar work – performed by Herb Ellis and Joe Pass in duet form, with no other instrumentation backing them up! The spare sound is really great – and each player trades rhythm while the other's soloing – and although the modes here stretch back to Parisian jazz ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the great Pablo Records efforts to revisit the jazz sound of the 50s – but in fresh new ways allowed by the freer recording modes of the 70s! The album features Ella Fitgerald and Joe Pass, plus nobody else – just voice and guitar coming together in quiet, introspective ways ... (Vocalists) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard & Oscar Peterson —
Face To Face ... LP Pablo, 1982. Used ....
$5.99Out Of Stock
Freddie Hubbard's very much in a back-to-basics mode at this point in his career – and what better place to go back to basics than at the Pablo label, where Freddie's working in an acoustic mode with the Oscar Peterson combo! The style is a far cry from Hubbard's electric records of the 70s ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A cool meeting of talents – and one that makes for some of the grooviest Count Basie material of the 70s! The vibes of Milt Jackson are a very welcome addition to the Basie groove here – an instrumental sound that didn't always show up in the Count's work, and which brings an extra ...
