New World
Galaxy (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A surprisingly righteous little album from Stanley Cowell – a set cut after his more famous music for the Strata East label, but one that still hangs onto a similar vibe! The style's a bit tighter than before, but still filled with soul and spirit – thanks to a lineup that includes ... CD

Valentine's Day
Tzadik, 2014. New Copy
Some of the most blistering music we've heard from John Zorn in years – a frenetic blend of guitar, bass, and drums – served up with the intensity of the early years of Naked City! Zorn's not playing on the record – but composed the work and directed it – while still ... CD

Silk & Salt Memories
ECM (Germany), 2014. New Copy
Very poetic work from Louis Sclavis – a musician who already had a great ear for personal sentiment in his music many years ago, but who's really turned into an even richer artist in the past decade or so! Sclavis plays bass clarinet, with these slowly-crafted, highly evocative strings of ... CD

Blue Note, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest albums ever by pianist Kenny Drew – a record that's as noteworthy for the contributions of the sidemen as it is for the efforts of the leader!

Blue Note, 1958. New Copy (reissue)

Blue Note, 1962. New Copy
Moody genius from Freddie Hubbard – one that features a unique group with McCoy Tyner on piano, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bernard McKinney on euphonium – a tuba-like instrument that gives the album a nicely shadowy sound! McKinney's probably better known for his 70s work with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Where it's at with Stanley Turrentine – circa 1962 – a time when the tenorist was really hitting on all burners, and turning out some tremendous work for Blue Note!

Minstrel/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1980. New Copy
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from Italian pianist Oscar Rocchi – a set that still holds onto some of the modern elements of his music, but which also shows a warmly lyrical side as well! That latter quality really comes through strongly in the flute lines of Hugo ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Franck R/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A rare gem from percussionist JF Fabiano – a really unique little set of jazzy grooves that was recorded in Martinique, and features musicians both from the European and American scenes of the 70s! There's some mighty great horn work on the set – thanks to work from guests Clifford ... CD

Fire Eater
Prestige (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A monster – and one of the best jazz funk albums ever on Prestige! Rusty Bryant blows his top off on this one – taking his tenor stylings out of the more staid R&B mode of earlier years, working with some younger heavy funk jazz players to craft a brilliant album of long searing ... CD

Up Above The Rock
Cadet (Japan), 1968. New Copy
One of the hardest, heaviest albums that Ray Bryant ever cut – even on the ballads – a monster little record that grabs you from the very first note! Ray did the arrangements for this one himself – working with his core trio that featured Ron Carter on bass and Grady Tate on ... CD

Summer Solstice
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A beautiful album of spiritual soul and Brazilian influenced jazz from Azar Lawrence – and a pretty rare one we're thrilled to have! Lawrence is a stellar sax player with a sound that's a bit like Gary Bartz, which means that he fits in perfectly with the Fantasy-era Prestige Records sound ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
People Moving
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Stellar reed work from Azar Lawrence – a player who's best known for his acoustic revival in recent years, but who could play with some excellent electric backings during the 70s! The set's less an electric funk outing than it is a spiritual jazz set, with keyboards and guitar in the mix ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dorothy's Harp
Cadet (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the grooviest Dorothy Ashby albums of the 60s – a set that has her already-great jazz work on harp backed by Chicago soul arrangements from Richard Evans – all in a blend that's somewhere in the territory of the Soulful Strings, but even groovier! And as an added bonus, Odell ... CD

Black Rhythm Revolution!
Prestige (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of the first records ever as a leader from funky drummer Idris Muhammad – a set that was cut right at the same time Idris was burning up the kit on his classic jazz funk sessions with other Prestige label players! The groove here is tight, funky, and very much in the mode that Muhammad ... CD

Louisiana Slim
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy
Sublime Hammond from the amazing Leon Spencer – heard here at the height of his younger years, when he was cooking up as much magic in the studio as Johnny Hammond or Charles Earland – and really stretching things out, in ways that take the jazz organ format much farther than the giants ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bad Walking Woman
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Supremely heavy work from organist Leon Spencer – one of his classic jazz funk sessions for Prestige Records, and a record that shows him opening up his sound a bit more than before! The album has Spencer working in a few different lineups – some with small groups that feature Melvin ... CD

Maiden Voyage
Cadet (Japan), 1968. New Copy
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brasswind
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Gene Ammons gets the Cannonball Adderley treatment – as he blows funky solos over an album arranged and conducted by David Axelrod! Brasswind has a larger, fuller funky sound than some of his earlier work for Prestige – and it works very well! The overall sound's a bit smoother, but ... CD

Thought Of You
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy
A stunning debut from drummer Otis Brown III – a player you may know from his work with Esperanza Spaulding, Somi, Joe Lovano, and others – stepping forth here with a rich musical vision of his own! The set was co-produced with Derrick Hodge, of Robert Glasper's group – and ... CD

Memphis Jackson
Impulse (Japan), 1970. New Copy
One of the grooviest albums ever from the legendary Milt Jackson – an upbeat, almost funky set of soul jazz tracks – played with some great grooves on the bottom! Those trademark Jackson vibes are firmly in place, but the setting is quite different from the staid sounds of the MJQ ... CD

Leaving This Planet
Prestige (Japan), 1974. New Copy
One of the greatest albums ever from organist Charles Earland – a double-length set that's filled with spiritual, soaring grooves! The style here is a perfect blend of the rougher soul jazz of Earland's roots with some of the spacier styles of his later recordings – served up in a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1965. New Copy
An excellent live outing from pianist Denny Zeitlin – recorded at the height of his early powers! The session's got a fresly new conception to piano-based jazz – a style that resonates nicely with the best 60s work of Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett, sharing some of the tenderness of the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Impulse/Resonance, 1966. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Lost genius from the great John Coltrane – a never-issued set, but one that's attained legendary status over the years – thanks to its placement in the Impulse Records vaults!

For Losers
Impulse (Japan), 1969. New Copy

Cry Of My People
Impulse (Japan), 1972. New Copy

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1982. Used
A pretty darn beautiful album of solo guitar tracks – recorded in 1982 by Japanese musician Masayuki Takayanagi, and featuring only electric guitar, played with a spare raspy edge – recorded in a rough style that's quite unusual for a Japanese jazz session of the time! However, it's ... CD

RCA, 1974. Near Mint- (reissue)
A genius bit of work from the legendary Weldon Irvine – a mightily righteous effort that more than lives up to its heady title and cover!

Concert Miniatures
RCA (Spain), 1957. Used
An obscure early gem from Neal Hefti – an amazing set of jazzy tracks, arranged with a style that's similar to some of his better soundtrack work of the 60s! The group on the album's a tentet – with 2 trumpets, trombone, reeds, guitar, bass, and lots of percussion – and Neal's at ... CD

One of Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides from the time – and a killer album that sports a late 50's lineup of the Jazz Messengers that included Jackie McLean, Johnny Griffin, and Bill Hardman.
