Duo
Red (Italy), 1990. New Copy
Cedar Walton in one of his most intimate settings ever – an album that has the pianist working with bassist David Williams, in a style that's even more open and flowing than some of his trio material! Williams has this round, warm tone that steps along at a sweet sort of pace – ... CD

3/4 For Peace
Red (Italy), 1993. New Copy
Drummer Billy Higgins added his talents to so many other albums as a sideman – but by this time of this early 90s date, he'd really come into his own as a leader – crafting creative energy from the drum kit through the rest of the trio – and getting some especially great help on ... CD

Cedar's Blues
Red (Italy), 1985. New Copy
A great summation of all the growth, talent, and creativity that Cedar Walton had hit by the 80s – a record that draws on both his trio work and his larger projects like the Eastern Rebellion quartet – done with a vibe that's somewhere in the best space of both! The group here is a ... CD

ORG, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A classic Sun Ra set from the late 60s – recorded in New York in 1968, and featuring a lineup that includes Kwami Hadi on trumpet, Marshall Allen and Danny Davis on alto and flute, John Gilmore on tenor and drums, and Pat Patrick on baritone and flute – all classic players who are the ...

Riverside/OJC, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
Bill Evans' first album as a leader – and a well-titled set that went onto transform the sound of the piano in jazz! The session isn't as lyrically free as some of Evans' later classics, but already has an undeniably fresh approach to the keys – one that's modern, yet never academic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Way Out East Vol 1
Red (Italy), 1984. New Copy
A really tremendous set from tenorist Steve Grossman – one that shows his incredible talents as a soloist from start to finish – deeply soulful, and working with a level of imagination that even blows away most of his other albums! The album's got Steve blowing in a Rollins-like trio ... CD

Art Pepper + Eleven
Contemporary/OJC, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
A unique large group session from Art Pepper – one of his few this way as a leader, despite constant 50s presence as a sideman in big ensembles! Arrangements are by Marty Paich, who more than makes things swing – and there's a nice rhythm section dancing underneath a larger group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bye Bye Blackbird
Pablo/OJC, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
John Coltrane live – in a setting that really shows the tenorist starting to stretch out a lot – almost hitting some of the freer modes of a few years later, but still keeping things swinging throughout! The rhythm section is superb – that legendary lineup of Jimmy Garrison on ... LP, Vinyl record album

East Side
Red (Italy), 2011. New Copy
A really great Hammond player, with a vibe that's quite different than usual – and some phrasing that makes for a mighty fresh take on this classic instrument! Vito handles the Hammond with a deftness and real understanding of sound – so that he can compress a note into a tight focus ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fantasy/OJC, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Classic early live material from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – already humming along nicely with some great alto sax from Paul Desmond! The group's in fine form here – a bit more relaxed and open than on their Columbia recordings – with plenty of creative piano lines from Dave, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hawk Relaxes
Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
The Hawk Relaxes, but never lets himself go – and a set like this is a great illustration of the gentle genius that made so many later Coleman Hawkins records so great! The relaxed setting for this record is a perfect setting for Hawkins to open up and stretch out – working his tenor ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy
Jazz on the edge of a great leap forward – ultra-hip material from the Japanese scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a time when the grooves were really taking on a bold new formation! Just a few years before, Japanese jazz was great, but never had a voice of its own – often ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sound Of Sonny
Riverside/OJC, 1957. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – a record that really lives up to its title, as it shows the maturing tenorist really finding his own voice in jazz – a sound that's unlike any other! Rollins' Riverside work sometimes seems to get overlooked sometimes in light of his freer late 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Collectors Items
Prestige/OJC, 1953/1956. New Copy (reissue)
A session of "collectors items" that Miles Davis recorded for Prestige in the 50s – both dates that were too short to be issued as albums by themselves, combined here into one full length record! The first batch of material is from 1953 – and features Davis working with Sonny ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Air Song
Why Not (UK), 1975. Used
A tremendous album from Air – recorded in their native Chicago, but one of the landmark 70s sessions on Japan's Why Not label! The trio is in wonderful formation here – very focused, with a sharpness that you don't always get in some of their other recordings – a perfect balance ... CD

Vogue (France), 1954. Used
Beautiful French work from tenorist Al Cohn – clear, clean, and impeccably recorded – with a tone and a sound that's just incredible! The album was part of Henri Renaud's Nous Rapport Des USA 10" sessions – in which Renaud worked with American players recording in Paris ... CD

Here
Galaxy, 1977. Very Good+
An overlooked 70s gem from Cal Tjader – a sweet little live set recorded in San Francisco, and a solid groover that stands with his better-known 70s live albums for Fantasy! The tunes have a spare and spacious feel to them – almost like Cal and the group are feeling out the spaces ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vampi Soul (Spain), 1975. Very Good+ (reissue)
Wicked funky fusion from Opa – with loads of great electric moments! Although originally from Uruguay, Opa are best known for their Brazilian-tinged albums on Fantasy during the mid 70s, but this album presents the group in the years before that time – working in a style that's rougher ...

Look Out!
Prestige, 1963. Very Good
A solid early 60s side by Johnny Hammond Smith and one that's unlike a lot of his other records from the time. This set was recorded with the great tenor player Seldon Powell, one of the few sessions where he actually gets a lot of room to solo, which we welcome whole-heartedly. Clement Wells is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Do Right
Blue Labor, 1974. Very Good+
A set of sweet funky jams from saxophonist Tyrone Washington – a player who's probably known best for his late 60s session for Blue Note, but whose heard here in an electrified mode with plenty of choppy rhythms on the bottom – very much in the spirit of some of the best Gary Bartz work ...

Look Into the Flower
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good
Very very very cool and groovy little LP by this lost organist from the late 60's! The sound is stripped down, with a bit of a poppy feel, but swinging grooves all the way through, and a great set of tracks that includes versions of "Holiday", "How Can I Be Sure", "A Day ... LP, Vinyl record album

Collectables/Columbia, 1961/1962. Used 2 CDs
Fantastic stuff – 2 beautiful albums of modal grooves that really deserve wider recognition! At the time of the recordings, Horn was one of the hipper players on the LA scene – working with Chico Hamilton's group in the late 50s, and moving out on his own as a solo act at the end of ... CD

Velvet Songs – To Baba Fred Anderson
Rogue Art (France), 2011. New Copy 2CDs
A great performance by the Chicago trio of Ernest Dawkins on reeds, Harrison Bankhead on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion – dedicated to their late scene-mate Fred Anderson, and played with an open, exploratory sound that Anderson would have loved! At times, there's a very ... CD

Jobim Collection
Philology (Italy), 1993. Used
Spare readings of tunes penned by Antonio Carlos Jobim – played by Lee Konitz on alto sax and Peggy Stern on piano and keyboards! The album's got a wonderfully fragile feel – one that makes it one of the most sensitive Konitz sessions from the time, and a really fresh interpretation of ... CD

Amazonas
Fantasy/OJC, 1976. Used
A sweet little Brazilian set from Cal Tjader – quite different than most of his other work of the time! Although Cal spent most of his time at Fantasy Records working in a mixture of jazz and Afro-Cuban styles, he steps off here in a very Brazilian 70s mode – one that has some great ... CD

Before There Was Sound
Nessa, 1965. Used
Some of the earliest work from AACM legend Roscoe Mitchell – tracks recorded before his legendary Sound album, hence the title – finally appearing here for the first time ever! Even in 1965, Mitchell is way ahead of his time – working at a free-thinking, free-wheeling approach to ... CD
