Mint/SSJ (Japan), 1965. New Copy
A great little set from pianist Al Haig – recorded in the 60s, and showing a tremendous growth since his early years! The feel of the set is very different than the Al we knew back in the early 50s – much more lyrical and open-ended, a mixture of blue notes and bossa influences, gently ... CD

Jazzman (UK), 2014. New Copy
The coolest record so far from this totally great combo – a live recording done on the home turf of the Greg Foat Group – the Playboy Club in London! The retro venue really fits the slinky, sexy vibe of the group's music – and although we already loved these guys before, this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1952. New Copy (reissue)
Brilliant early work by Miles Davis – some of his first truly important sessions to appear under his own name, and material that's awash with new ideas and bold inspirations! The Miles heard here is a bit more straight bop than Davis a few years later on Prestige – but that's not a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Message
Prestige/OJC, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"! The sound here is much leaner and cleaner than Groove in his Pacific Jazz years – a tight trio approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hamburg 72
ECM (Germany), 1972. New Copy
Never-heard music from the great Keith Jarrett – a beautifully-recorded concert performance from 1972, and one that draws together so many wonderful strands of his music at the time! The date's a trio one, but has a feel that's quite different than some of the more famous trio dates that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
ECM (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A great revisiting of Michael Mantler's Jazz Composer's Orchestra – that crucial large ensemble that gave the New York underground a great chance to express larger ideas in the 60s and 70s! This version of the group has a much more international vibe – as the music was recorded in ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
"New York is now" – a pretty bold statement from saxophonist Ornette Coleman, but one that definitely shows his shift in role – from a major force on the LA underground of the early 60s, to an artist who was helping pave the way for a huge wave of growth on the New York ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beautiful Life
Mack Avenue, 2014. New Copy
A heartbreaking project from saxophonist Jimmy Greene – dedicated to his daughter, who was caught in the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school. Instead of focusing on the tragedy that struck his family, Greene instead chooses to celebrate the wonderful, but too-short life of his ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1953. New Copy (reissue)
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1994/1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A really great showcase for the budding talents of Joe Lovano – heard here at a crucial point in his rise to glory on Blue Note! Joe had already been blowing greatness on tenor for years before this set, but these Village Vanguard recordings put Lovano in the same heady space as Joe ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
A jazz classic if there ever was one – and the best-selling album ever by Lee Morgan, thanks to the use of the title track in a car commercial! Sure, you've probably heard "The Sidewinder" enough that you think you know the album already – but the rest of the tunes really ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1957. New Copy (reissue)
John Coltrane's classic – and only – recording as a leader for Blue Note! The album's no throwaway date, though – as it stands strongly with both Coltrane's other label work of the time, and with the best of the late 50s Blue Note scene – a time when the label was really ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Verve, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
A real high point in Jimmy Smith's famous 60s run at Verve Records – a key collaboration with arranger Lalo Schfrin, who brings a great blend of jazz and soundtrack styles to Jimmy's famous groove on the Hammond! Lalo's backings are totally great – with touches of Latin and Brazilian ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Incredible work from pianist Duke Pearson – a darkly-tinged album of grooves that surpasses all his other gems for Blue Note! The record showcases some great work from Bobby Hutcherson – slid into the mix in a really sly way, so that his jazzy vibes color all the tunes with an edgey ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ethiopian Knights
Blue Note (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Sweet electric funk – in a very trippy style! Before Donald Byrd hooked up with Larry Mizell and started recording his smooth fusion grooves of the mid 70's, he recorded this gem – kind of a "lost" album that has Donald working in an open-ended electric sound – one that' ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe
Verve/Aartrud (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderful wonderful set from the British jazz scene of the late 60s – beautifully inventive large ensemble material, done under the direction of Neil Ardley – and featuring some of the best British jazz musicians of the time! The group's a showcase not only for creative young talent ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
With A Smile
Baked Potato/Warner (Japan), 1987. New Copy
David T Walker brings it in with a smile – working with his Warm Heart group that features keyboards from Jerry Peters and drums from James Gadson! The sound's a bit smoother than Walker's work of the 70s, but still plenty darn nice – thanks to that sly, subtle rasp that David always ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Y-Ence
Warner (Japan), 1986. New Copy
Laidback 80s work from guitarist David T Walker – a set that's a bit more moody than some of Walker's smoother albums from the 70s – and which is produced with an unusually sensitive touch! Many numbers begin with long, introspective passages from David on the guitar – slowly ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Wicked early work from Milt Jackson – a record that's got a lot more of an edge than some of his later work with the Modern Jazz Quartet – a near-perfect modernist bop sound that's every bit the best side of Blue Note in the early 50s! The groups here are really great – one a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Seminal recordings from Thelonious Monk – noteworthy not only for the pianist's commitment to a modernist bop ideal, but also for his integration in the growing collection of top-level jazz players on the New York scene. The work's notable also for the fact that Monk's playing in group ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jazz Track (mono)
Columbia, 1958. Sealed (reissue)
Although not actually a proper album – this is still one of the greatest Miles Davis albums of all time! Side one features 10 tracks from Miles' amazing soundtrack to the film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud – with excellent work by French players Barney Wilen, Rene Urtreger, and Pierre ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note/Music Matters, 1955. Sealed 2LP (reissue)
A completely unique little session – and a record that's every bit as musically striking as you might guess from its title and cover! The date's a rare Latin-tinged one for trumpeter Kenny Dorham – a record that takes his usually smooth sound and sets it up against octet backings with ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Supraphon (Czech Republic), Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Rare early work from this important East European avant combo! Titles include "5 Dodeka", "Jordu", "Tre Per SHQ", "My Girl", and "Confession". LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Newk's Time
Blue Note, 1958. Near Mint- (reissue)
One of Sonny Rollins' classic sides for Blue Note from the 50s – all of which are excellent! For the set, Sonny's working in a relatively free quartet format, with Wynton Kelly on piano, and rhythm from the team of Doug Watkins and Philly Joe Jones. Overall, the session's got a bit more of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nature Of Things
Epic/Collectables, Mid 50s. Used
An excellent album of tunes with a cool Konitz-like sound – featuring the vastly under-discovered reed work of Lenny Hambro, with piano by Eddie Costa, and guitar by either Sal Salvador or Barry Galbraith. The tracks are short and angular – but have a particularly soulful groove in the ... CD

Journey To Enlightenment
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy
A stone 70s classic from reedman Carlos Garnett – and a set that's every bit as righteous as you'd guess from the cover and the title! Garnett really soars to the heavens here – blowing a mixture of different instruments in a setting that takes off from his classic Black Love album, ... CD

Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2012. New Copy Gatefold
CD...$9.99 14.99
One of the best albums in years from altoist Jesse Davis – recorded in a relaxed, open-ended style that really unlocks some new magic in his horn! Davis' studio records are all quite nice, but this live date really takes him to places we've never heard before – a really old school ... CD

Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold
A great showcase for the mighty talents of alto saxophonist Will Vinson – who blows these beautiful long solos here in a sharp live setting! The album's got a great sense of personality – individual musicians who each have a strong voice of their own, coming together under Vinson's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold
A stunning showcase for the talents of trumpeter Alex Sipiagin – and maybe his greatest record so far! You might know Alex as the husband of singer Monday Michiru, but he's a hell of a trumpeter in his own right – and really stretches out here in the company of a killer quintet that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Studio 4/SSJ (Japan), 1964. New Copy
Brilliant work by JR Monterose – an obscure album cut after his Blue Note date, with backing by a small Iowa combo! The sound is very hip – as sharp-edged and standout as any of JR's other few albums – and the regional setting of the album doesn't dim the fire a bit! The core ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1949. New Copy
Very rare work from an early bop saxophonist in Chicago – reedman George Davis, who's best known for bringing together the team of Jackie & Roy! Davis recorded briefly for Aristocrat/Chess Records, but has hardly any output of his own – which makes this previously-unissued live set ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
Pianist Johnny O'Neal is a mighty warm talent – and a hell of a singer too, working with this raspy tone that's very much his own – and definitely on the bluesier side of the jazz spectrum! This excellent live set has Johnny working at the height of his charms – shifting ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
Tenorist Scott Hamilton has made countless great records for other labels over the decades, but he sounds especially nice in this debut for the Live At Smalls series – a setting that really lets him open up, take off, and craft some wonderfully extended solos! Hamilton's a creative talent in ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Prelude
Storyville (Denmark), 1978. New Copy
Hardly a prelude – as the album's a fully-formed, fully-stated set right from the start – easily one of the best moments ever for reedman John Stubblefield – and an overlooked spiritual classic from the 70s! There's a vibe here that rivals the Strata East scene at their best ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Transmigration Of The Magus
Tzadik, 2014. New Copy
Really beautiful work from one our favorite John Zorn projects of the past few years – his sublime Gnostic Trio, a group with Bill Frisell on guitar, John Medeski on organ, and Kenny Wollesen on vibes! The trio come together here in these ethereal, hypnotic compositions by Zorn – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pipeline
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2000. New Copy
The long-overdue issue of the only recording by this lost Chicago/Swedish project – a massive lineup of young avant players from the start of the millenium – similar in construction to the Peter Brotzman Tentet, but working here with a very different sound! The group came together over ... CD
