Bheki MselekuStar Seeding ... CD
Verve (France), 1995. Used ... $3.99
A really tremendous little album that was one of our favorite soul jazz sessions of the 90s! Bheki Mseleku plays piano, tenor, guitar, and vocalizes a bit – crafting long, drawn out tunes that have a hint of Soul African jazz, and which swell and sway in a cosmically soulful style that ...

Verve, 1960. Very Good ... $0.99
Great large group material from Gerry Mulligan – and a record that definitely defines the sound of his famous Concert Jazz Band of the early 60s! The group features a four part sax section – headed by Mulligan, with other players that include Zoot Sims on tenor, Gene Allen on baritone, ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry MulliganGerry Mulligan & The Concert Jazz Band On Tour – Guest Soloist Zoot Sims ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good- ... $4.99
A really wonderful collection of live work from Gerry's early 60s Concert Jazz Band – a really forward-thinking large group that was one of Mulligan's greatest accomplishments of the time! In some ways, the ensemble worked in a sound that was like that of Mulligan's small group recordings of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry MulliganGerry Mulligan 63 – The Concert Jazz Band ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good ... $4.99
The sound of Gerry Mulligan in the early 60s – and one of the best records by his larger than usual Concert Jazz Band! Given Gerry's piano-less experiments of the 50s, it's surprising to actually have him as the pianist on this session – hitting the keys with a nice light touch, so ...

Gerry Mulligan & Ben WebsterGerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good ... $16.99
Mulligan always sounds great next to a tenor – especially in the Verve series that has him teamed up with players like Johnny Hodges, Paul Desmond, or Stan Getz. This release, cut with Ben Webster upfront, is one of the best of that series – and features the pair blowing easily and ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
A great little set that shouldn't work as well as it does! Mulligan's baritone work is cut nicely by Getz's wispy alto – making for a combination of horns that yeilds some wonderful moments that opens both players up more than usual for the time. Titles include "Anything Goes", ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A&M/Verve, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great session cut by Milton in the US, with a feel that's similar to Courage, his other great US/A&M album, done in the late 60s. The sound here's a bit more modern than that one, and the group is graced by some excellent guests, like Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Airto, Raul De Souza, and ... (Brazil) read more CD

Argo/Verve, 1964. Used ... $8.99
A cool cooker from Oliver Nelson – one of the few 60s albums he cut as a leader with the same sense of soul and swing as his backings for other players! The sound here is right up there with Nelson's work with Jimmy Smith over at Verve – soaring, soulful arrangements that sparkle in ... (Jazz) read more CD

One of the greatest records of the 60s – and a sublime debut from Nico, sounding fresher and less dreary here than on many of her later sides – although still pretty chilling overall!

Verve, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Laura Nyro's first album ever – and even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than ...

Anita O'Day pays tribute to Downbeat poll winners by singing vocal versions of their big hits in this lively set of jazz tracks from the 50s!

A nice little collection of work by Anita O'Day – a great singer who recorded a lot of excellent albums for Verve in the 50s, and whose work really deserves a good listen!

Buddy Bregman's doing the arrangements on this one – and he brings a great jazzy flair to the backings, helping Anita O'Day open up in her most dynamic mode!

An early 60s repackaging of the album Anita – one of the strongest of Anita's mid 50s outings for Verve – and a tightly-crafted set that benefits from some good arrangements from Buddy Bregman! The format is perfect for Anita – giving her little space to have to make decisions, ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album
