Trialogue (deluxe edition)
Sunday (Germany), 2014. New Copy
Really spare, really beautiful sounds from the great Bugge Wesseltoft – working here on acoustic piano, alongside electronics from Henrik Schwarz and bass from Dan Berglund – a trio setting that's every bit as moody as Bugge's solo music on his own! The sound shapes are very murky at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morning Joy – Paris Live
Hatology (Switzerland), 1986. New Copy
One of the best Steve Lacy albums from the 80s – a really strong live performance with a definite Monkish approach, served up in a really no-nonsense way! The group's just a quartet – with Lacy on soprano sax, Steve Potts on alto and soprano, Jean-Jacques Avenel on bass, and Oliver ... CD

Trio/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A great early album from pianist Kunhiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working in a relaxed live setting, in a small Japanese club that also features a conga added to his usual trio! Most numbers begin with an introspective introduction from Sugano – those lyrical lines he does so ... CD

Live At The Someday Vol 1
Mugen/Think (Japan), 1987. New Copy
A great live date from tenor genius Steve Grossman – done at a time when he'd fallen a bit out of the limelight of jazz, but when he was also recording some of his best work in years! Grossman's really full of fire and energy here – spinning out long lines, and blowing with the kind of ... CD

Hat Art (Switzerland), 1996. New Copy
Excellent solo work from the great Joe McPhee – heard here at a time when he was really reigniting the creative fire in his music! The album is all solo McPhee – and Joe plays various reeds, pocket cornet, piano, and even a bit of electronics – shifting modes and moods with the ... CD

Full House/Think (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy
A really lovely album from pianist Masaru Imada – a set that has some elements of the great Japanese fusion scene of the time, but a record that also has some warmer more acoustic moments too! Imada does a great job of balancing between upbeat groovers and some more personal, lyrical songs ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Trio/Think (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Exactly the kind of Japanese piano trio we love from the scene in the 70s – warm, open, and really flowing – with long tracks that let the leader really stretch out in very imaginative ways, while never ever getting too overindulgent! The set's a live one – recorded at the Date ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Trio/Think (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Sensitive solo material from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that features shorter tracks than some of his trio albums of the time, but done with an equal amount of feeling! Sugano's got this gentle, spacious touch on the piano – a bit like Bill Evans, but also with phrasing that might ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1992. New Copy
A hell of a trumpeter, with a hell of a group – heard here live at the Blue Note in New York, with a very open, freewheeling vibe! Franco Ambrosetti is a player who can sometimes be very much involved with the concept of a project – so much so that we sometimes forget that at the core, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Heart Bop
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy
That's "heart bop", not "hardbop" – a title that really gets at the warm feeling and sense of soul on this overlooked date! The album's an early 80s gem from Enja – cut at a time when the label was really finding its own, and doing an especially great job of giving ... CD

Futures Passed
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy
One of the coolest, grooviest albums we've ever heard from vibist Dave Friedman – a set that really lives up to the promise we sometimes expect from other records of his, but never find this clearly! Friedman plays both marimba and vibes – the latter with this bold, chromatic quality ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Beautiful solo piano from Mike Nock – and a record that grabs us a lot more than we would have expected! Nock's a player who's had so many different great moments, in so many different settings, it's almost easy to overlook a more subtle record like this – yet the album's got a sense ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lorrach/Paris 1966
Hat Hut (Switzerland), 1966. New Copy
A crucial European performance by Albert Ayler in the mid 60s – one that wasn't issued until many years after the recording, but which has become one of the sharpest pictures of his genius at the time! The vibe here is different than the Ayler albums for ESP – still very much in the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stockholm/Berlin 1966
Hatology (Switzerland), 1966. New Copy
Stunning live recordings from Albert Ayler's European tour of late 1966 – during a peak creative period for Ayler – while working with an incredible group! This excellent CD captures them in Stockholm for Swedish radio on November 10, 1966 – followed by an equally well ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Comin On
Hatology (Switzerland), 1988. New Copy
A brilliant reinvention of the Bobby Bradford/John Carter partnership – a key force on the LA avant scene of the late 60s and early 70s – still filled with fire in this later recording! Bradford's cornet has lost none of its force – and the real shift here is Carter, who works ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Eighth
Hatology (Switzerland), 1981. New Copy
A very moody performance from Cecil Taylor – one long reading of the piece "Calling It The 8th", originally presented as 2LP set, but finally getting its due here as a single CD that presents the whole thing from start to finish with no interruption! Although as free as some of ... CD

Six By Six
Chiaroscuro, 1977. Very Good+
An excellent and obscure session in a 70s free-ish mode, not too different from something you might hear on Strata East froom around the same time. Recorded by a strident spiritual group led by bassist Ken Hutson and drummer Rashaan – and featuring Arthur Blythe, Olu Dara, Courtney Wynter ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Miles Smiles
Columbia, 1966. Very Good+
Miles Smiles, but his grin is a wry one – given the angular energy of the set! The album's a landmark effort from the mid 60s quintet that includes Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – all of whom work without fail to capture Davis' newly emerging approach to ...

Minor Intrusions
Up Front, 1954. Very Good
Cheapo 70s reissue/repackaging of one of Mingus's great Bethlehem sessions from the 50s, originally released as The Jazz Experiments Of Charlie Mingus. The great one's playing here in the company of John LaPorta, Teo Macero, Thad Jones, Jackson Wiley, and Clem De Rosa. Only 3 of the orignal ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Vie De Boheme
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most unusual sessions for BYG/Actuel – and one of the greatest as well! The set features Dave Burrell's recasting of Puccini's opera as a platform for jazz improvisation – done in a surprisingly contemplative mode that makes the album one of the most lyrical and sensitive ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, Late 60s. Sealed
An unusual album from German guitar legend Sigi Schwab – a player who worked on countless great jazz and prog sessions over the years, but who's playing classical roots plus some of his own music here! The set features some vocal and string quartet backing – plus flute and percussion ... LP, Vinyl record album

Open Road
Columbia (Japan), 1973. Near Mint- 2LP
A great double-length set from reedman Sadao Watanabe – heard here in his most spiritual period! The record features Sadao on flute, alto, and sopranino – with a lineup that also includes Takehiro Honda on Fender Rhodes and Kohsuke Mine on soprano and tenor sax! LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Storyville, 1954. Very Good-
Nothing too academic here – despite the Harvard setting – just clear, clean early work from Lee Konitz – recorded with that crispy edge that he brought to all of his best early work! The album's a treasure all the way through – really amazing stuff, with a sharpness that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luv
Why Not (Japan), 1976. Near Mint-
A soaring session of spiritual jazz piano – and one of the only albums as a leader cut by Donald Smith – best known to most folks as the brother of Lonnie Liston Smith, and a member of the Cosmic Echoes! The sound here is much more hard-edged than you might guess – starting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Haus (Germany), Late 50s. Sealed
Beautiful live recordings from the Modern Jazz Quartet – recorded in Germany in the late 50s, and featuring some especially great vibes from Milt Jackson! The recording quality is great on most cuts – and there seems to be an especially strong focus on Milt's contribution to the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963/1986. Sealed 2LP (reissue)
Wicked work by pianist Horace Parlan – and one of his most stunning Blue Note sessions ever! The album was first recorded in 1963, but then kept on the shelf for years – seeing only brief release as part of a Booker Ervin package in the late 70s, and finally coming out with the proper ...

Busting The Bongos
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. Sealed
Wonderful lost work from Toby Fichelscher – a German bongo player with a hell of a great ear for an unusual groove – strongly demonstrated here in a set of previously-unreleased recordings! Toby draws plenty from American percussionists of the 50s – and works here in a modern ... LP, Vinyl record album

Omnivore, 1981. Near Mint-
Amazing Art Pepper – work from a 1981 tour of Japan, all of it unreleased – and presented here in a package that sparkles alongside some of his best later albums! Side one is mindblowing – an album-side track that has Art stretching out in so many different ways – voicing ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Beginnings
Theresa, Early 80s. Near Mint-
Heavily spiritual work from pianist Joe Bonner – a set of solo tracks that flows with warmth and imagination only hinted at on some of his 70s sides! The tunes are all quite long, and have Joe carving out a post-Coltrane, post-Tyner approach to the keys that makes for some beautifully ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Directions
Mira, Late 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)
Great work by one of the grooviest groups on the LA 60s scene! The Afro Blues Quintet have a blend of soul jazz and Latin styles that's similar to the best 60s work by Cal Tjader, or to records by small combos like the Quartette Tres Bien or The Latin Jazz Quintet. Lots of grooves have a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 2014. Used
Bobby Hutcherson returns to Blue Note – on a set that's got a surprisingly fresh sound! The format's different both from Bobby's previous work for the label, and from his more recent albums on other imprints – in that it mixes his masterful vibes with Hammond from Joey DeFrancesco ... CD
