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

Live At The Village Vanguard
PI Recordings, 2014. New Copy
One of the greatest recordings we've heard from guitarist Marc Ribot in years – but that's mostly because of the presence of the great Henry Grimes on bass and violin! The best cuts are the mellower ones – of which there are many – long numbers that let Ribot's tones resonate ... LP, Vinyl record album

My Shining Hour
Origin, 2014. New Copy
A wonderful set by contemporary jazz guitar great Bobby Broom and his excellent trio – who put a timeless spin on standards that Broom holds in high esteem as sturdy mementos of their time – and he does so without even a whiff of nostalgia. His enthusiasm for the material shines ... CD

Country Dream
Columbia (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Nothing "country" about this record – as Japanese guitarist Kiyoshi Sugimoto keeps things very hip and contemporary – working in a freely fluid style that also has a few funky touches as well! The group on the set is a quartet – with Kiyoshi's guitar amidst piano, bass, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Progressive, 1980. New Copy
Strong later work by tenor sax legend Arnett Cobb – in a quartet session cut in New York in January of 1980 – sounding fresh and revitalized one of his final studio dates! Funky Butt actually isn't a left turn into a funk sound Cobb, but it is a pretty darn great showcase for his rich ... CD

Catalyst
Cobblestone, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of the hippest funky jazz combos of the 70s – stepping out here in their amazing debut for Cobblestone records! Catalyst had a groove that was unlike most of their contemporaries – a sound that was often jazzier than some of the tighter funk artists on labels like Kudu or Prestige, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill English
Vanguard, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A rare groover from drummer Bill English – Dionne Warwick's husband during part of the 60s, and a great little player in his own right! The set's one of the rare few hardbop sides cut for the Vanguard label – and it's got a crack quintet lineup that features horn work by Dave Burns on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Windows Of The Mind
Crossover, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Funky trumpet galore – and a lost break classic! At the time of this 1974 LP, Billy Brooks was an obscure LA trumpeter working in the Ray Charles band – and although this record didn't bring him instant fame when it was released, it's grown to become a groove classic over time – ...

Funky Skull
Limelight, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
One of our favorite albums of all times – and a legendary testament to the greatness of the Chicago music scene in the late 60s! Melvin Jackson was the bassist in Eddie Harris' very successful group of the time – and his playing on Eddie's trippy and funky records for Atlantic is one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Venus (Japan), 1997. Used Gatefold
Beautiful sounds from pianist Denny Zeitlin – one of those players who often gets overlooked, but who's made some incredibly expressive music over the years! The album's got a sparkle that really takes us back to Denny's 60s sides for Columbia, but it's also got a slightly more mature ... CD

Improvisation
Artis/Cramps (Italy), 1975. Used
A well-titled album from the legendary Derek Bailey – definitely a set that lives up to his tremendous reputation over the years! Bailey plays solo guitar here – working through a set of short improvised pieces, and coming up with sounds that are simply incredible – especially ... CD

Blue Note, 1953. Near Mint-
Excellent early work by Howard McGhee – reissued here in the original 10" LP format! Players include Gigi Gryce, Tal Farlow, Horace Silver, and Walt Bolden – but McGhee's the real star of the session! The quality of the material is superb – and the recordings are quite ... LP, Vinyl record album

Triple Hip Trip
Owl (France), 1979. Near Mint-
They certainly got the "hip" in this one right, because the album's one of Daniel Humair's greatest sessions – a real stunner from the end of the 70s, recorded in trio formation with vibes by David Friedman! Friedman had a great sound back at this point – a groove that was ... LP, Vinyl record album

No Tricks No Gimmicks
Beam International, 1987. Near Mint-
Not the Trombones Inc group of late 50s Warner Brothers – but a cooler ensemble with John Gordon, Fred Joiner, and Benny Powell on the lead instrument – working with a small combo that includes piano from Kenny Barron! LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Solid & Spirit
Nero's Neptune, 2010. Sealed
Tremendous duets between reedman Peter Brotzmann and drummer Hamid Drake – two players who are no strangers to each other after all these years, yet who still manage to come together in a way that's always fresh and compelling! The double-length album features long tracks spun out over two ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jon Peterson Trio In Concert
John Peterson, 1978. Very Good+
An obscure trio set from Michigan pianist Jon Peterson – recorded live in Muskegon during the late 70s. Peterson plays acoustic piano, and has a dramatic touch on the keys that makes you think he might well have more suited playing classical – although he does manage to swing enough ...

Jumping With Ventura (Trip pressing)
EmArcy, Early 50s. Near Mint-
Classic bop work from Charlie Ventura – recorded with a large band that includes Neal Hefti, Bennie Green, Bill Harris, Tony Scott, and Jackie Cain on vocals. With a lineup like that, it's hard to miss – and the album's filled with the kind of raw energy that made Ventura a surprising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wing/Mercury, 1959. Sealed
Tighter than usual for Buddy Rich at Verve – but still a great little set, thanks to some soulfully swinging arrangements from Ernie Wilkins – who was really at the top of his game at this point in his career! The lineup is filled with great players – including Phil Woods, Harry ... LP, Vinyl record album

What I Am
Caprice (Sweden), 1979. Sealed
A funny thing happened to Red Mitchell in the 70s – he moved to Sweden and got very very hip! This album's great proof of that change – as Red steps out from being just a jazz bassist, and sings a bit, plays piano, and generally works in a mode that would really surprise you if you ...

Nicely grooving work from organist Bill Doggett – in a stepping R&B mode that's in the style of his more famous work on tracks like "Hold It" or "Honky Tonk" (neither of which are on this album.) The group's a quartet, with Percy France on tenor, Shep Shepherd on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Just The Beginning
Cherry Pie, Mid 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A strange bit of nationalism from Australia's most successful group ever! The record comes packaged in a complicated die-cut sleeve, with a booklet that has a lot of images of old and new Sydney, as well as photos of the band. The music is the usual Aussie Burrows bag from the time – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
