Progression
Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy
A great lineup, and a great sound throughout – really smoking through a batch of all original numbers by members of the quintet – which features Seamus Blake on tenor, Alex Sipiagin on trumpet, David Kikoski on piano, Boris Kozlov on bass, and Donald Edwards on drums! Most of these ... CD

Arawak, 2009. New Copy
A beautiful tribute to the late Fred Anderson – done in a style that's extremely organic and very poetic – just what we'd expect from the mighty Douglas Ewart! Some tracks have a straighter jazz approach – some of the sounds and structure of Anderson's music – but others ... CD

Innova, 2003. New Copy
Wonderful explorations of the sound of the didjeridu – done at a level that's quite different than any other use of the instrument we've ever heard – no surprise, given that the music here is all created by AACM legend Douglas Ewart! The performances bridge Ewart's two worlds of ... CD

Newbeings
Arawak, 2001. New Copy
Sublime work on sopranino saxophone from Douglas Ewart – mostly played in a solo setting, with wonderfully evocative tones – but also mixed with piano and percussion on the title track – which also features extra voices and musicians as well! The solo tracks are really great ... CD

Velvet Drum Meditations
Arawak, 2010. New Copy
A very hip percussive project from Douglas Ewart and the Nyahbingi Drum Choir – a group that mixes spiritual jazz with rootsy styles of rhythms – but all at a level that's very organic and spontaneous overall! The set was recorded live at the Velvet Lounge, but it's got a sound that's ... CD

Famous Door/Progressive, 1977. New Copy
One of the earliest albums as a leader from tenorist Scott Hamilton – definitely the young talent promised in the title, but already one with a very traditional sense of tone and timing! Hamilton's horn takes the lead, but gets strong support from Warren Vache on trumpet – whose well-cr ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Nessa, 1977. New Copy
An overlooked later gem from Chicago trumpeter Ira Sullivan – maybe some of the greatest music he ever recorded, thanks to the freewheeling vibe and strong artist respect of the Nessa label! Sullivan's working here on a variety of horns – trumpet, flugelhorn, flute, and soprano sax ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Strata/180 Proof, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A real treasure from reedman Maulawi Nurudin – originally recorded as part of the Strata Records scene in Detroit, but done in Chicago in 1973 – and issued here for the first time ever! The vibe here is almost more Tribe Records than some of the other Strata sides – as Maulawi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Generation (plus bonus tracks)
Nessa, 1982. New Copy
Mad music from the legendary NRG Ensemble – a key early force in Chicago's avant jazz scene in the 80s, teamed here with the mighty reedman Charles Tyler! The group itself is already heavy on dynamic reeds – with leader Hal Russell on tenor and Chuck Burdelik on tenor, alto, and ... CD

Reliving The Moment – Live At The Keystone Korner
High Note, 1977/1978. New Copy
Cedar Walton and Freddie Hubbard – doing their thing in an incredible residency at San Francisco's Keystone Corner club, from December 29, 1977 to New Years Day, 1978 – as part of the Rahsaan Roland Kirk Memorial Jazz Festival! Walton is leading, and his piano is inspired and energetic ... CD

Whatthef*ckdoyouwant
Trost (Austria), 1987. New Copy
A legendary team, heard here at the height of their powers – at a time when both Peter Brotzmann and Sonny Sharrock were finding a bold musical space alongside each other! The pair had worked in Last Exit with a bit more of a frenetic rock jazz vibe – but here, the style is much more ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Mobile Fidelity, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Angles Of Entrance
Arawak, 1998. New Copy
Wonderfully inventive work on clarinet – performed by an ensemble headed by the great Douglas Ewart on bass clarinet – with other reed parts by Anthony Braxton, Henry Threadgill, Ed Wilkerson, JD Parran, Don Byron, and Mwata Boden! The approach extends past similar clarinet ensemble ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Arawak, 1994. New Copy
Some of the most spiritual work we've ever heard from Douglas Ewart – a set of deeply meditative tracks, performed on a host of organic instruments! The title track is a long number on bamboo flute – played with a completely sublime tone – and other tracks feature bells, flutes, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
United Artists/Mobile Fidelity, 1962. New Copy Gatefold
A legendary set from the team of guitarist Jim Hall and pianist Bill Evans – both already wonderful players on their own, but really hitting a magical sort of space here together! The record is a classic in understatement – the inevitable meeting of two players who'd both made a career ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Mobile Fidelity, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
There's nothing "silent" here – as the album's a bold entry in the electric years of Miles Davis – one that still features contributions from Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Tony Williams – but which also expands the lineup considerably – really reaching out ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1955. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (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
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
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
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
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
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
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
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
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/FTG, 1974. New Copy
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
4, 5 & 6
Prestige/OJC, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual title, but one that refers to Jackie McLean in quartet, quintet, and sextet formation – a growing lineup that develops along the course of the record, as new players are added into the mix with a casual, almost blowing session approach! The set begins with Jackie's alto set out in ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Screamin' The Blues
New Jazz/Prestige, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most open-ended and laidback records ever from Oliver Nelson – a set that gets away from the tighter arrangements of other albums, and really lets you concentrate on his saxophone work! The album's got a really wonderful feel throughout – easygoing and soulful, with work by ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rising Son
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A rising sun from the Jose James side of the universe – trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, stepping out here in a wonderful debut for Blue Note! You've heard Kuroda play with Jose James over the years, but he comes up with a rich new groove here on his own – a mostly-instrumental mode that has ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album – Donald Byrd's first session with producer Larry Mizell, the man who went on to forever change the face of jazz funk! After rumbling around for a few years attempting electric styles that really didn't fit his mode, Donald wisely hooked up with Larry, and hit a groove here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four On The Outside
Timeless (Netherlands), 1978. Used
An explosive late 70s moment of brilliance from trombonist Curtis Fuller – and one of his greatest albums of the time! The set's got Fuller working with an unusual group – Pepper Adams on baritone sax, making for a nice "bottom" alongside Fuller's trombone, plus James ... CD

Two As One
Red (Italy), 1986. Used
A wonderful little date from pianist Kenny Barron – one that has him working in drumless duo mode, with only the bass of Buster Williams for accompaniment! The tunes are often quite long, and it's beautiful to hear the way Kenny stretches out on the keys – buoyed up warmly by Williams' ... CD
