Bones Blues (with bonus track)
Sackville/Delmark, 1977. New Copy
A killer from drummer Pete Magadini – an artist we really don't know from many other records, but who really lets tenorist Don Menza shine on this obscure 70s session! Menza's one of those players who really knows how to make the best of a date like this – taking all the tight sense of ... CD

Innova, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs
A wealth of rare avant work from the archives of the Creative Music Foundation – an organization that was started by Ornette Coleman, Karl Berger, and others – and which features work from some of their best contemporaries! The package is a bit like finding lost tapes from the loft ... CD

Wiring
Intakt (Switzerland), 2014. New Copy
Pianist Vijay Iyer with a tremendous trio of talents – the Trio 3 group of Oliver Lake on alto, Reggie Workman on bass, and Andrew Cyrille on drums – all avant jazz heavyweights who really help Iyer hit some new territory! Vijay's been making spectacular sounds under his own direction ... CD

From The Region
Delmark, 2014. New Copy
Amazing work from one of the greatest jazz musicians working today – vibist Jason Adasiewicz, a player with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! It's been years since we've been this excited about anyone on the vibes – and Adasiewicz not only returns the instrument to the ... CD

Sackville/Delmark, 1975. New Copy
Really wonderful work from Don Pullen – solo material, and some of his most soulful sides of the 70s – done in this long-flowing style that's completely sublime! Pullen's really at his best in this format – working in a way that's very free, but never overindulgent or ... CD

Mainstream/Boplicity (UK), 1971. New Copy
Drummer Roy Haynes works here with an ensemble that's definitely as hip as the title promises – a really righteous group that makes the album one of Roy's most spiritual records ever! Haynes was always a drummer who was really a cut above, even back at the start – but here, he really ... CD

Folklords
Delmark, 2014. New Copy
One of the trippiest albums we've heard from Delmark in recent years – a really creative session from bassist Jason Ajemian, and one that links the label's avant jazz work to some of the deeper sides of Chicago's indie scene! Ajemian is free to work without any sense of genre or convention ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rhythm Willie
Concord (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Twin guitar jazz from Herb Ellis and Freddie Green – the former on lead electric, the latter on acoustic rhythm – playing together here in a nicely sprightly session from the 70s! The approach is lean, and really makes the best of both players – and next to Green's acoustic, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Keystone 3
Concord (Japan), 1982. New Copy
Long, lean live energy from Art Blakey and a well-remembered version of The Jazz Messengers – a group that includes both Branford Marsalis on alto and Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – plus great tenor from Bill Pierce as well! The vibe is nicely different than the 60s years of the group ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hands Of Fire
Red (Italy), 1984. New Copy
A fantastic session of Latin jazz – recorded by Ray Mantilla with a tight version of his Space Station combo! The album's a very percussive one – with percussion from Mantilla mixed with drums from Steve Berrios, who also plays percussion, and more drums from Joe Chambers, who also ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jeff Morrison, 2014. New Copy
The album's got a really classic-styled cover, and a classic-styled sound to match – a great Hammond/tenor vibe that's wonderfully old-school all the way through! The album was recorded live in a small Chicago club, and has the feel of a vintage Prestige records live date – with heavy ... CD

Head Rock
Columbia (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A definite head rocker here – a brilliant bit of funky jazz from Japan, and a record that beautifully balances acoustic and electric elements! Jiro Inagaki plays some heavy tenor and soprano sax on the record – working with a combo that includes electric guitar, electric bass, and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Country Dream
Columbia (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Nothing "country" about this record – as Japanese guitarist Kiyoshi Sugimoto keeps things very hip and contemporary – working in a freely fluid style that also has a few funky touches as well! The group on the set is a quartet – with Kiyoshi's guitar amidst piano, bass, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Catalyst
Cobblestone, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of the hippest funky jazz combos of the 70s – stepping out here in their amazing debut for Cobblestone records! Catalyst had a groove that was unlike most of their contemporaries – a sound that was often jazzier than some of the tighter funk artists on labels like Kudu or Prestige, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy
A sweet little set from Japanese keyboardist Masahiko Sato – one that has him playing both acoustic and electric piano, amidst a set of larger backings from Jiro Inagaki and his Big Soul Media group! The sound here is really unique – a bit like some of the fuller American jazz sides at ... CD

Hanna Fontana Band Live At Concord
Concord (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Jake Hanna was one of the strongest drummers to work for Concord Records in the 70s – and as a result, the label often gave him a chance to showcase his talents as a leader – including this well-done live date with trombonist Carl Fontana! Fontana's a later entry to the school of ... CD

Concord (Japan), 1983. New Copy
Al Cohn is one of those players who continued to stay great, even as the years went on – still growing and developing his amazing skills on tenor, although often without all the flair and fanfare of his contemporaries! But when Cohn got the right setting to show his skills, he could really ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Concord (Japan), 1977. New Copy
One of the first statements of greatness from tenorist Scott Hamilton – a young player who emerged in the late 70s, but one with a definite old school sound! Scott blows here with a wind that's plenty good – very deep-toned, and with a raspy, honest quality that almost takes us back to ... CD

Blue Note/Mosaic, 1960. Used 6CDs

Savoy, Late 60s. Very Good+
Excellent lost groovy jazz LP on Savoy! Although you may know Paul Jeffrey's later album on Mainstream, which is a bit of a snoozer, this LP is a killer batch of funky Varitone jazz tracks, featuring Jeffrey on electric tenor, in a band with Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Larry Ridley on bass, George ...

Savoy, 1955. Near Mint-
Hard-swingin tracks from Ernie Wilkins – one of the most soulful arrangers of his time, working here in a wonderful all-star session from the 50s! The album's definitely got the "top brass" promised in the title – a lineup that features Donald Byrd, Ray Copeland, Idrees ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Scott In Hi-Fi
Brunswick, 1953. Very Good+
An early gem from reedman Tony Scott – recorded at a time when he was using clarinet almost exclusively, and recorded with a very unusual group that includes Dick Katz on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums! The tunes are lightly swinging, in a nice blend of swing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tubbs' Tours (Mole pressing)
Mole (UK), 1964/1981. Very Good+

Flying Home
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good
If you ask us, Hamp from this time is a lot more exciting than he was in the early days! Here, Hampton's working with his very popular mid 50s orchestra – in an open-ended Verve setting that lets the group play long and open-ended versions of the sorts of material that they'd do in a live ...

Four Seasons
GRT, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A much better album than you'd expect from the title – because the set's not just one of those "jazz meets classical" presentations that were big in the 60s! Instead, Moe offers his own take on the concept of the Four Seasons – penning a number of new tunes for an ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album
