Super Mann
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A wonderful 70s set from Herbie Mann – and one that features some heavy help from P&P maestro Patrick Adams! The album's more of an Adams-directed affair than the usual Herbie set – as Adams produced and arranged all the tracks, and really takes Mann in the direction of a hip late ... CD

Epic/Esoteric (UK), 1976. New Copy
Cosmic fusion from David Sancious – one of his headphone-popping albums for Columbia from the 70s! The record has a really outerspace kind of approach – long tracks that build and layer sound, mostly electric instrumentation, with lots of keyboards, guitars, and percussion. He's again ... CD

Teasin'
Atlantic (Japan), 1974. New Copy
The first album as a leader by guitarist Cornell Dupree – but one that was recorded after years of jazz, soul, and rock session and sideman work during the 60s and 70s! It's great to finally hear Cornell get out in front of the mix – hitting those lean, stretched-out lines that always ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Heavy-jamming fusion from Billy Cobham – done at a time when he was already cutting plenty of heavy-jamming fusion! The album was recorded live in Switzerland and London – all very much in a post Bitches Brew approach to jazz that has all players going pedal to the metal in pursuit of ... CD

Funky Thide Of Sings
Atlantic (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Billy Cobham's always got something funky going on in his music – and this 70s classic for Atlantic Records has the drummer at the height of his powers – really mixing together jazz, rock, and funk impulses – all without some of the overindulgence of his more jamming records of ... CD

Sunbelt
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Sweet electric work from Herbie Mann – a surprisingly nice little record, despite a cheesy title and cover! The set's got a way deeper groove than the resort image might make you think – and Herbie's working here with a hip lineup that includes Roy Ayers on vibes, Richard Tee on ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Aquamarine
Atlantic (Japan), 1987. New Copy
A sweet set of solo fusion from drummer Danny Gottlieb – formerly with Pat Metheny's group – and feel that's definitely in character with some of Methany's work from the period. Gottlieb is working here in the company of guitarist John Abercrombie and a number of cuts, and Joe Satriani ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahimsa
Half Moon/Warner (Japan), 1988. New Copy
Great 80s work from guitarist David T Walker – the kind of set that's really a cut above most other mainstream electric jazz of this type from the time – thanks to excellent solos from Walker, and contributions by a host of well-known guest stars! Walker's got that great bluesy quality ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Night Cruiser
Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy
A key record in Deodato's move from funky jazz in the 70s to modern soul in the 80s – and one that showcases the best of his talents in both genres! The approach here is more tightly arranged and produced than that of his earlier CTI sides – but in a mode that's still plenty nice to ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Happy Hour
Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy
A classic from Deodato's soul-based years with a nice little R&B-inspired groove! Happy Hour was done at a time when Deodato was really getting into a lot of modern soul production and arranging work with other groups – and here, he tries his hand wonderfully at the style himself – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Musican
Warner (Japan), 1985. New Copy
Sweet 80s fusion from saxophonist Ernie Watts – one of his key albums as a leader in that decade, after countless years as a session player on other folks' records! The album's mostly jazz, but there's also a soul component as well – thanks to vocals from Phil Perry on some of the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Elektra (Japan), 1989. New Copy
Quite a soul-based set from the great George Duke – a set that not only features his strong keyboards, but also a fair bit of vocals from singers Phil Perry, Jeffery Osborne, and James Ingram – all of whom are a great fit for Duke's evolving sound! Duke had worked heavily with singers ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Inside Moves
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy
If there's anyone we trust with a fusion groove, it's the great Grover Washington – as Washington's 70s albums for Kudu are still the blueprint for mixing saxophone solos with electric jazzy backing – a rich legacy he continued strongly into later years! This early 80s set has ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Matter
Gramavision/Warner (Japan), 1986. New Copy
Warmly chromatic work from guitarist John Scofield – full of tones and textures that shift and shimmer about a soulful center – always as chromatic as you might guess from the album's cover and title! There's certain 80s elements in the instrumentation – especially the use of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Eight Times Up
Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy
Larry Carlton live in Tokyo – really sounding great in the stripped-down vibe of a concert performance! At the time, Carlton was still one of the most focused jazz fusion guitarists of his generation – really able to hone in on a great style and sound, with all the best expressive ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sleepwalk
Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy
A real gem from guitarist Larry Carlton – a set that's very jazzy, but which also shows the strong focus he'd developed on his rock session work in the 70s – including some famous recordings with Steely Dan! There's a sharpness to Carlton's guitar that cuts through some of the sleepier ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rit/2
Discovery/Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy
A nice mix of 80s groove and jazzy fusion – served up by one of the few players who could make such a set come off so well! Lee Ritenour's fusion work of the 70s always had a fair dose of R&B in the mix – but by the time of this set, he had moved even more strongly into a modern ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mirage A Trois
Warner (Japan), 1983. New Copy
A classic early set from The Yellowjackets – just the kind of record that made them a mainstream fusion leader in the 80s! The style here takes off from 70s electric jazz with a bit more polish – not really smooth jazz, but a tight fusion of keyboards and guitars that are nicely ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy
Pretty darn hard-jamming fusion from multi-instrumentalist David Sancious – who amicably left his gig in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band to follow his ffreewheeling fusion muse – and he's working here with producer Billy Cobham! Sancious riffs way on Hammond organ and Moog, as well ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mack Avenue, 2014. New Copy
Trumpeter Sean Jones's best album yet for Mack Avenue – a quartet set that finds him taking a conscious step into a more spontaneous style – and it works incredibly well! It's not that Jones has suddenly left his classic hard bop influences behind for a raw, free jazz aesthetic. There' ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Prelusion
Prestige, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A great set from Patrice Rushen – very different than her later R&B work from the 80s! The record's her first, and at the time, Patrice was much more of a jazz artist – working here with a cool west coast set of players (Joe Henderson on tenor, Hadley Caliman on alto and soprano, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quartetto (with bonus CD)
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A bracingly fresh combination of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – and a real standout set of modern jazz from the Italian postwar years! At first glance, the lineup of the group is relatively conventional – forged with the same instrumentation as the Modern Jazz Quartet or George ... LP, Vinyl record album

Amor Buenos Aires
Catalyst, 1971/1977. Very Good+
An expansive set of post-Coltrane jazz from bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz and a large ensemble of Argentinian players that includes Fernando Gelbard on piano and flute, Chivo Borrarro on tenor, and Santiago Giacobbe on organ. The style of the album shifts from track to track – and over the course ... LP, Vinyl record album

Testifying
Prestige/New Jazz, 1960. Very Good-
Before stretching out on Blue Note later on in the 60s, Larry Young started the decade with some great sets like this – straighter soul jazz that showed he had a very firm grasp on traditional modes for the Hammond – more than enough to allow his experimentation in later years! The set' ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Big Beat Jazz
King, Late 50s. Good
Insanely wonderful work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – one of his rare King albums, sides we like almost better than his work for Prestige! The format here is clear and simple – hard-grooving tenor sax, organ, and percussion – all recorded in a raw and echoey format that gives the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quartet
CBS, 1982. Used
Acoustic magic from Herbie Hancock – proof that he wasn't only cutting electro records in the 80s! The set's got a fluid, open feel that's a bit like some of the VSOP Quintet work – although the group here is slightly different, with Hancock on acoustic piano, Ron Carter on bass, and ... CD

Unknown Known
Rogue Art (France), 2013. Used
A beautiful date from bassist Josh Abrams – a player who's lent his soulful talents to so many great Chicago sessions over the past decade or two – really coming into his own as a leader! Josh has this deeply spiritual approach to his instrument – a style that, back when he first ... CD

Anaya
Rogue Art (France), 2009. Used
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from Chicago flautist Nicole Mitchell – a really wonderful record that shows the full spectrum of her talents! The set's recorded with a trio that includes Hamid Drake on percussion and Harrison Bankhead on bass and cello – both players who can ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motema, 2010. Used
Intimate piano work from Geri Allen – a set of solo performances, inspired by the music of Cecil Taylor, McCoy Tyner, and Herbie Hancock! There's definitely strong traces of Tyner and Hancock – given Allen's usually soulful undercurrent – but there's also a heavy dose of Taylor, ... CD

Dream Keeper (Japanese pressing)
DIW (Japan), 1990. Used
A lost chapter in the all too short history of Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra – an album recorded shortly after the group's better-known album for ECM in the 80s! Like other Liberation Music outings, Carla Bley is a very strong presence on this set – penning original tunes ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Oliver (aka Excursion Through Oliver)
Classic Jazz, 1964. Used
A very quirky little record – filled with the kind of offbeat tones we've always loved in the music of Bob Dorough! Bob doesn't sing on this set, but he does a wonderful job as a leader – helping rework tunes from the musical Oliver into creative vehicles for jazz-based expression ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Forty Fort
Hot Cup, 2010. Used
One of most joyful and energetic young jazz ensembles around – a group that's both powerful and playful, reverent of its forbears yet stands facing forward – with a fantastic fourth album in Forty Fort! The group is again working in their unique blend of jazz styles, with nods to the ... CD

Verve/Lonehill (Spain), 1957. Used 2CD
Buddy DeFranco plays tunes associated with Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw – but in a completely different way than before – with a wider-open swing for the 50s! The work here is all small combo, not big band – and there's a free-flowing groove that's totally great – a sound ... CD

Ming
Black Saint (Italy), 1980. Used
Beautifully arranged work from David Murray – an important early large group recording, one that really helped point the way to some of his later genius! The session features Murray leading an all-star octet that includes Henry Threadgill on alto, Olu Dara on trumpet, Butch Morris on cornet, ... CD
