It's About Time
RCA (Japan), 1962. New Copy
Of course it's about time for Joe Morello – because as Dave Brubeck's drummer, he was constantly caught in recording sessions that were all about unusual rhythms and timings in jazz! Yet this set really helps Joe break free from the Brubeck mode – and also shine strongly as a leader, ... CD

Genuine Tong Funeral
RCA (Japan), 1968. New Copy
One of the most ambitious projects ever from vibist Gary Burton – an extended piece written by Carla Bley – and billed as "A Dark Opera Without Words"! The work has a feel that's much more fluid than opera, though – and is a great instrumental outing that not only ... CD

Lofty Fake Anagram
RCA (Japan), 1967. New Copy
A standout classic from Gary Burton – the kind of fresh-voiced and angularly modern session that showed why his sound on the vibes was one of the most revolutionary in jazz at the time! The session features a quartet with Larry Coryell on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Bob Moses on drums ... CD

Walking In The Night
RCA (Japan), 1960. New Copy
Some of the best modern jazz Italy had to offer in the postwar years – and a record that's gone onto be the blueprint for countless recent work from groups on labels like Schema and Deja Vu! Tracks are short, but very groove-centered – often mixing modal jazz rhythms with hardbop solo ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA (Japan), 1962. New Copy
A really landmark album in European jazz – one of those records that always tops the lists of collectors, and for good reason too! The sextet of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso was easily one of the greatest things going in jazz on that side of the Atlantic in the early ... CD

Jimmy Jones Trio
Sony (Japan), 1955. New Copy
No description available. CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA (Japan), 1954. New Copy
Shorty takes a group of west coast players, and forges out a nice set of arrangements of classic Basie material – a little bit smoother than Basie, a little bit cooler, but still with lots of nice ensemble playing in the grand old tradition. Players include Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, Harry ... CD

Images
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A wonderful record – one in which Phil Woods blows alto solos over the arrangements of Michel Legrand – handled in the masterful style of Legrand's best jazzy soundtrack work, and in a way that lets Woods hit some of his best solos of the 70s! Legrand's always been great at this sort ... CD

Positive Intensity
CBS (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A unique Japanese-only session from pianist Tommy Flanagan – with Ron Carter on bass and Roy Haynes on drums! CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Winds Of Barcelona
Sony (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Groovy guitar work from Yoshiaki Masuo – working here in a sweetly chromatic style with hip small combo backing! Yoshiaki's got echoes of 60s work from George Benson or Wes Montgomery – a sound that's clean, but which has great colors billowing out nicely from the edges – a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Monastic Trio
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Early work by Alice Coltrane – somewhat under the shadow of her late husband, as you'd guess from the use of his name on the front cover – but really stepping out here with a voice of her own! The Monastic Trio of the set features Alice on harp and piano – alongside bass from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Universal Mind
Arc Light Editions (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
An obscure bit of spiritual jazz from the early 80s – recorded by a trio in Finland, but with a style that's much more in the mode of American work from the loft jazz scene of the 70s! The group's led by reedman Jone Takamaki, who plays tenor, bass clarinet, flute, and soprano sax – ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Melody Lingers On
High Note, 2014. New Copy
Soulful sounds from legendary tenorist Houston Person – working here with a hip group that makes the album way more than just another batch of late nite ballads! Houston's tenor is well-rounded and laidback, but it's got some fresh company in a quintet that includes the vibes of Steve Nelson ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Oversoul Manual
Aum Fidelity, 2014. New Copy
One of the most unusual projects we've ever heard from Darius Jones – so much so that the record doesn't feature the instrumentalist at all – just his own ideas and compositions performed by a very unique vocal quartet! The album is dedicated to all the singers who've influenced Jones ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia, 1969. New Copy 2CD
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 ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia, 1974. New Copy 2CD
Some of Miles noisiest, freest playing from the 70s – recorded live at Carnegie Hall in 1974, and originally issued only in Japan – most likely because the album was so darn noisy, Columbia was scared to release it to the American market! As with other Davis gems from this time, the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Motema, 2002. New Copy 2CD
Pure brilliance from Babatunde Lea – an artist who sounds as deeply soulful in the 21st Century as he did on his first recordings from a few decades back! This time around, Lea's working with the wonderful Frank Lacy on trombone and trumpet – in a set of work that's all arranged by ... CD

Memphis Convention
DIW (Japan), 1992. Used
A great assemblage of legendary players from the Memphis scene, both old and young – brought together in one great chorus of soulful jazz! The feel of the set recalls the 1959 Young Men From Memphis album for United Artists – a record that featured a good number of the players on this ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Roost, Early 50s. Very Good
Beautiful early bop material by Getz – recorded at Storyville with a crack little combo that includes Al Haig on piano and Jimmy Raney on guitar. The Raney/Getz sound is a great one – with Raney's jangly guitar notes providing a nice edge for Getz's smoother alto. Titles include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

EmArcy, Late 40s. Very Good-
Important early recordings from the key years of bebop and cool jazz – with Mercury sides by Red Rodney, Lennie Tristano, Chubby Jackson, Bill Harris, Gene Ammons, and Billy Eckstine! LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good
Sublime early work from Teddy Charles – featuring the leader on vibes, plus Jimmy Giuffre on baritone and tenor, and Shorty Rogers on trumpet – billed as "Jolly Roger" on the cover! LP, Vinyl record album

Ivory Hunters – Double Barrelled Piano
United Artists, 1959. Very Good
A compelling album of twin-piano lines – one in which Bill Evans and Bob Brookmeyer play head-to-head, in a spiraling modernist style that brings out the best in each player! Although Brookmeyer's best known as a trombonist, he's pretty great here on piano – and the album's a real ... LP, Vinyl record album

Son Of Gunn!!
Contemporary, 1959. Very Good+
A crackling set of crime jazz from drummer Shelly Manne – a follow-up to his first set of work from the Peter Gunn soundtrack, and arguably even better than the first! Manne's working here with a great combo that includes Victor Feldman on vibes, Joe Gordon on trumpet, and Richie Kamuca on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve (France), 1990. Near Mint-
One of the greatest moments of brilliance in Weston's later comeback years – part of a series of trio recordings in which he paid tribute to piano geniuses of years past! This one's quite possibly the best in the series – as it features a strange Monk-ish take on the sound of Ellington ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Glidin & Stridin
Nilva, 1982. Near Mint-
Pianist Junior Mance joins Alvin Queen for this hip early 80s session – and Alvin gives him plenty of room to open up! The tracks are all trio numbers – Queen on drums, Martin Rivera on bass – and they're really dominated by Junior's keyboard work – very open, flowing, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diz & Getz
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good
Nicely grooving material – with tracks that are a bit shorter than the usual Verve "celebrity meets celebrity" set, but which are no less well-played. Dizzy is always fantastic in this sort of loosely-crafted setting – and Getz's playing here is nicely relaxed, with more open- ... LP, Vinyl record album

Behind The 8 Ball
Argo/Chess, 1964. Near Mint- (reissue)
Classic hard-hitting organ jazz session by this great Chicago keyboard player, better known to the world for his two Blue Note LPs, but playing here in a style that's much more creative, and much more open-ended than on those LPs. He's got a tight trio here, with Ben White on guitar and Jerry ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1962. Used
Magical music from the very first note – the kind of record you need to hear if you've ever doubted the genius of Bill Evans! The sound here is subtle, and supple – but still often more revolutionary than that of the countless albums it inspired in years to come – and Evans is ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Verve, 1968. Used
Solo work by Bill Evans – recorded in 1968, at a time when he was increasingly exploring gentleness in his work! The album's quite haunting – done with no other musicians, no overdubs (as in other solo 60s albums) – just Evans alone at the keys, expressing himself with a somber ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
PJM, 2011. Used
Possibly the best album so far from Chicago reedman Pat Mallinger – a cooking little live date that captures him in his home turf – the legendary Green Mill! At some level, the date's got the raw feel of a classic Chicago tenor date – but at another, thanks to Mallinger's fluid ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Earth Jones
Quicksilver, 1982. Used
Soaring, righteous sounds from Elvin Jones – an early 80s session, but one that cooks as strongly as his most soulful albums from the 70s! In fact, there's almost a focus or tightness here that could sometimes be missing from other Jones albums – a really bold, sharp use of the group's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BYG/Fuel 2000, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
2 classics by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – back to back on one CD! At the time they were taking Paris by storm, the Art Ensemble recorded these brilliant albums – both of which are some of their strongest early work, far more well-formed than any of their individual expressions ... CD
