Prestige/BGP (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy
Tasty bluesy organ material from Prestige, featuring 2 hard-to-find records, back-to-back in a single set! Billy Hawks sings and plays organ with a groove that's in between jazz, blues, and deep soul. On New Genius Of The Blues he's fronting a trio that includes a young Ivan "Boogaloo ... CD

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

Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy
Pretty darn hard-jamming fusion from multi-instrumentalist David Sancious – who amicably left his gig in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band to follow his ffreewheeling fusion muse – and he's working here with producer Billy Cobham! Sancious riffs way on Hammond organ and Moog, as well ... CD

Arashi
Trost (Austria), 2014. New Copy
Akira Sakata is a player who's never been known to hold back – but he sounds especially powerful here in the company of Paal Nilssen Love on drums and Johan Berthling on bass – two younger players who seem to inspire Sakata to a sort of frenzied height that we haven't heard this ...

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

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

Rit/2
Atlantic, 1982. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mack Avenue, 2014. New Copy
Trumpeter Sean Jones's best album yet for Mack Avenue – a quartet set that finds him taking a conscious step into a more spontaneous style – and it works incredibly well! It's not that Jones has suddenly left his classic hard bop influences behind for a raw, free jazz aesthetic. There' ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Trost (Austria), 1984. New Copy 3 CDs
A really wonderful under-discovered performance by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – a complete live set from 1984, presented here with really stunning fidelity! The package is a great antidote to some of the fuzzier Ra live sets on the market – as it's got the care that the Trost label has ... CD

Viper's Drag
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy
One of the hippest records that Henry Butler has cut in a long long time – and a set that really takes us back to the most inventive sounds he gave us during his first few years of recording! The album's a collaboration with trumpeter Steven Bernstein – who brings a lot of modern ... CD

Teasin'
Atlantic (Japan), 1974. New Copy
The first album as a leader by guitarist Cornell Dupree – but one that was recorded after years of jazz, soul, and rock session and sideman work during the 60s and 70s! It's great to finally hear Cornell get out in front of the mix – hitting those lean, stretched-out lines that always ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funky Thide Of Sings
Atlantic (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Billy Cobham's always got something funky going on in his music – and this 70s classic for Atlantic Records has the drummer at the height of his powers – really mixing together jazz, rock, and funk impulses – all without some of the overindulgence of his more jamming records of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahimsa
Half Moon/Warner (Japan), 1988. New Copy
Great 80s work from guitarist David T Walker – the kind of set that's really a cut above most other mainstream electric jazz of this type from the time – thanks to excellent solos from Walker, and contributions by a host of well-known guest stars! Walker's got that great bluesy quality ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Musican
Warner (Japan), 1985. New Copy
Sweet 80s fusion from saxophonist Ernie Watts – one of his key albums as a leader in that decade, after countless years as a session player on other folks' records! The album's mostly jazz, but there's also a soul component as well – thanks to vocals from Phil Perry on some of the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Elektra (Japan), 1989. New Copy
Quite a soul-based set from the great George Duke – a set that not only features his strong keyboards, but also a fair bit of vocals from singers Phil Perry, Jeffery Osborne, and James Ingram – all of whom are a great fit for Duke's evolving sound! Duke had worked heavily with singers ... 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
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
Prelusion
Prestige, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A great set from Patrice Rushen – very different than her later R&B work from the 80s! The record's her first, and at the time, Patrice was much more of a jazz artist – working here with a cool west coast set of players (Joe Henderson on tenor, Hadley Caliman on alto and soprano, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Im-Hotep/Jazzman (UK), 1973. Used
Amazing sounds from drummer Roy Brooks – very spiritual work that's quite a change from his straighter soul jazz of the 60s! The album's right up there with Roy's better-known (though still rare) live performance at Town Hall – or his classic Free Slave session – and like those ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Africa
Timeless (Netherlands), 1987. Used
Great stuff – one of the better records cut by Pharoah during the late 80s, and a progressively minded session that has him working with a quartet that features John Hicks on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums. Although Muhammad's not at his peak here, Lundy's warm ... CD

Jazz Version Of Kean
Riverside, 1961. Very Good
Early 60's all-star session that's loosely based around the score for the musical Kean, and which features Blue Mitchell, Bobby Timmons, Jimmy Heath, Ron Carter, and others – with arrangements by Jimmy Heath and Melba Liston. The tracks are short, with lively ensemble playing, and nice solos ... LP, Vinyl record album

Just Too Much
RCA, 1954. Very Good
Progressive piano from Hal Schaeffer – a player who's well suited to the variety of moods and modes required of pianists in the 50s! Hal's working here in trio format, but with the kind of playful flourishes and powerful keyboard command that made for strong staying power in regular small ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Piano International
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good
An unusual global session for Atlantic Records – an album that has John Lewis presenting work by three other musicians that he feels are ripe for wider discovery! The set's got some killer work from Rene Utreger – a key Parisian player in the postwar years, working here with dexterity ... LP, Vinyl record album

Goz The Great
RCA, 1955. Very Good
Conrad Gozzo's certainly the great one here – blowing trumpet in the lead of a batch of tight west coast jazzmen, all with a bit more swing than the usual RCA date of this nature! The album's got a few tracks with a slightly big group – one that has four trumpets, three trombones, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

An expansive set of post-Coltrane jazz from bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz and a large ensemble of Argentinian players that includes Fernando Gelbard on piano and flute, Chivo Borrarro on tenor, and Santiago Giacobbe on organ. The style of the album shifts from track to track – and over the course ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Beat Jazz
King, Late 50s. Good
Insanely wonderful work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – one of his rare King albums, sides we like almost better than his work for Prestige! The format here is clear and simple – hard-grooving tenor sax, organ, and percussion – all recorded in a raw and echoey format that gives the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, Late 50s. Near Mint-
One of the strangest records ever on Verve! The album's a dreamy batch of easy tunes – composed by Phil Moore, and played by a group that includes Lucky Thompson, Marshall Royal, Snooky Young, Gerald Wilson, Calvin Jackson, and Harry Klee, plus added strings. The overall feel is similar to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Indigo Trio – Live In Montreal
Greenleaf, 2007. Used
A hypnotic live set from the trio of Nicole Mitchell, Harrison Bankhead and Hamid Drake – 3 true leaders of the modern Chicago avant garde – and truly one of the finer new live albums we've heard in long time! Although this festival date from January '05 in Montreal is officially their ... CD

MCA/Jazzclub (Germany), Mid 70s. Used
A great look at an under-acknowledged period of the career of Eumir Deodato – his mid 70s sides for MCA, recorded right after his better-known records for CTI! The vibe here is quite similar to the jazzy funk that Deodato laid down in the earlier part of the decade – a bit fuller at ... CD

Shawn-Neeq
Black Jazz, 1971. Used
A stone classic on the Black Jazz label – and one of the most unique guitar albums ever! We're not sure what the title meant originally – but over the past few decades, it's come to stand for some heavy heavy guitar work from the legendary Calvin Keys – a record that's really ... CD

New York Time
Chesky, 2006. Used
The warm tones of bassist Christian McBride always sound great – but they somehow feel especially nice here in the company of pianist Cedar Walton! McBride and Walton make up two parts of a quartet that also includes Javon Jackson on tenor and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and the pair seem to ... CD
