CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
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. Gayle ... CD

Quartetto (with bonus CD)
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A bracingly fresh combination of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – and a real standout set of modern jazz from the Italian postwar years! At first glance, the lineup of the group is relatively conventional – forged with the same instrumentation as the Modern Jazz Quartet or George ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Mr. Rhythm
RCA (Spain), 1956. Used
A long overdue classic from Count Basie's excellent 50s guitarist! Freddie was one of the strongest single-line players of the 50s – coming to prominence in the years before Grant Green and Wes Montgomery completely transformed jazz guitar, but never getting as much chance as those greats to ... CD

Gone, But Not Forgotten
Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy
Don't worry about the title, because drummer Jonathan Blake is very much with us – stepping out strongly in his Criss Cross debut as a leader! The set's got a unique approach – a quartet with no piano, just drums and bass – plus tenor and flute from Chris Potter, and tenor and ... CD

Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy
Saxophonist Justin Robinson serves up a tribute to bassist Dwayne Burno – in a set that wasn't originally intended that way, but which turned out to be Burno's last time in the studio! Dwayne passed away from kidney disease after the album was recorded – and hearing his wonderful work ... CD

Eastlawn, 2011. New Copy 2CD
A really great tribute to Sun Ra – played by Detroit's Planet D Nonet, with a sound that's quite faithful to the original! The tunes here do a great job of mixing the initial Arkestra style – slightly offbeat and angular – with the later, freer modes the group embraced in the 60s ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note/4 Men With Beards, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most righteous albums of jazz ever recorded – a brilliant blend of soulful and avant garde styles, backed up by a chorus of voices that have a really soulful sound! The album's the second recorded for Blue Note by the Ghetto Music ensemble of trumpeter Eddie Gale – a lesser-k ... LP, Vinyl record album

High Contrast
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rays Of The Sun
Eastlawn, 2014. New Copy
We first learned to dig the Planet D Nonet from their Sun Ra tribute album of a few years back – and this time around they've got Arkestra legend Michael Ray on trumpet with the group, on a whole lineup of famous tunes from the Sun Ra songbook! The approach here echoes the older modes of Ra's ... CD

Prestige, Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$3.99 15.99
A collection of Willis Jackson ballad work pulled from early 60s Prestige albums that include Neapolitan Nights, Really Groovin, Shuckin, and In My Solitude – not really as "gentle" as the title might imply, and instead some great soulful tenor numbers, done in the laidback late ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
High Note, 1979. New Copy
Sublime solo sounds from the great Jaki Byard – one of the most creative pianists of the 60s and 70s – heard here in a stunning late nite set at the legendary Keystone Korner! Byard's a player who could take all the best piano sounds of the 50s – the fresh, modern moments, and ... CD

Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
Pianist Johnny O'Neal is a mighty warm talent – and a hell of a singer too, working with this raspy tone that's very much his own – and definitely on the bluesier side of the jazz spectrum! This excellent live set has Johnny working at the height of his charms – shifting ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2008. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99
A great set from tenorist Ian Hendrickson Smith – a player you might know from his work with Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings! Smith was in the Dap-Kings for a good part of the oughties, but has really opened up as a jazz musician too – and here, he really cooks in the wonderful ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2011. New Copy
A trio of modern talents, working beautifully together on a set of extended live tracks! The group features guitar from Peter Bernstein, Hammond from Larry Goldings, and drums from Bill Stewart – coming together in ways that remind us of the hipper side of 60s organ combos – those ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
I Love Music
Savant, 2014. New Copy
Hammond hero Mike LeDonne's working here in the very well-named Groover Quartet – a rock-solid lineup that features Eric Alexander on tenor, Peter Bernstein on guitar, and Joe Farnsworth on drums! All players have recorded often with each other, and fit together like hand in glove – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2008. New Copy
Proof that this Smalls Live series really brings out the best in most players – as pianist Kevin Hays grabs our ears here more than ever! The set's got an open, spontaneous energy – lots of really long tracks from Hays and his trio of Doug Weiss on bass and Bill Stewart on drums. Yet ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2009. New Copy
One of our favorite records ever from trombonist Steve Davis – a live date recorded at Smalls, and one that lets him stretch out a lot more than most of his studio albums! The setting is wonderful – an open-ended, easygoing quintet with great piano from Larry Willis – and a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2009. New Copy
Drummer Neal Smith has a hell of a group here – Eric Alexander on tenor, Steve Wilson on alto, Mark Whitfield on guitar, and Mulgrew Miller on piano – a lineup that he more than lives up to with his tight leadership, and great choice of material for the date! The tunes include two ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Omnivore, 1974. New Copy
Some of the earliest work ever from Jaco Pastorius – rare demo recordings, issued in this format for the first time ever – filled to the brim with the kind of groundbreaking basswork that Jaco helped pioneer! Many tracks are relatively spare, and really give you a great chance to hear ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold
Bassist Dezron Douglas can be one hell of a leader – especially when he's working with a group and setting as great as this! The album's got that solid punch we love in the Smalls Live series – a way of allowing players to really open up and be themselves, yet also find a cohesiveness ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
Sublime solo guitar from Peter Bernstein – an artist who's already had a group outing in the Smalls Live series, but who sounds completely different here on his own! Bernstein's always got these chromatic qualities that make his work with other players so wonderful – and that aspect of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
One of the greatest albums we've ever heard from trombonist Frank Lacy – an artist who hardly ever takes the spotlight as a leader, but who really shines at the helm of this amazing set! The group has a depth of feeling that takes us back to some of Lacy's more spiritual projects of previous ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
Drummer Rodney Green leads a super-sharp combo here – a crack quartet with bold tenor from Seamus Blake, sensitive piano from Luis Perdomo, and warm work on bass from Joe Sanders. Blake really gets plenty of room to roam around on the album's long tracks – which are a perfect showcase ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
A great live date in the excellent Smalls series – and a wonderful group outing not just for pianist David Berkman, but for trumpeter Tom Harrell as well! Tom gets a lot of room to really open up and solo beautifully on the record – in ways that are quite different than his own studio ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Baddest Monk
Savant, 2012. New Copy
Eric Reed's no stranger to the music of Thelonious Monk, but this time around he's got a great approach – a fresh take on these modern classics, served up in soulful ways that definitely fit the "baddest" spirit of the title! There's even more of a rhythmic focus here than in the ... CD

Opened But Hardly Touched (180 gram pressing)
FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the first great sessions from FMP Records in the 80s – and an album that really shows the creative growth at the label since its start! The music is played by a very hip trio – with Peter Brotzmann on e flat clarinet, tarogato, tenor, alto, and baritone – plus Harry Miller ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chase
Decca/Giants Of Jazz, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used
A classic meeting of two powerful tenors on the west coast – Wardell Gray and Dexter Gordon – locked together beautifully in this seminal recording from an early Gene Norman concert! The format is loose and free – a key bop illustration of what the tenor sax could offer, when set ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brothers! – The Complete Sessions
RCA (Spain), 1955. Used
A classic set of interlocking tenor work from 3 giants who made up the best part of Woody Herman's classic 4 horn lineup – Al Cohn, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca – all coming together here in small group formation! The album's a wonderful example of the way that the hornplay of the ... CD

Heavy Hitter
Muse/32 Jazz, 1979. Used
A Heavy Hitter from tenorist Eddie Lockjaw Davis – recorded a bit late in his career, but with a sound that's mighty nice – and every bit as great as some of his 60s recordings for Prestige! The combo's small, swinging, and soulful – Albert Dailey on piano, George Duvivier on ... CD

Selflessness
Impulse, 1963/1965. Very Good- Gatefold
A great set of unreleased recordings that was issued after John Coltrane's death, but which stands as an essential chapter in his groundbreaking body of work for Impulse! The album features 2 tracks recorded at the Newport Jazz fest in 1963 – both with Roy Haynes on drums, plus the usual ... LP, Vinyl record album

Koch/CBS, 1961. Used
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who's probably best known to the world for his work with Charles Mingus, or for his other 60s session on Blue Note! This album's quite different than both of those aspects of Johnny's career – and has him ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Times Square, 2008. Used 2CD
A gimmicky record, but one that's pretty darn great – thanks to a very unusual approach that mixes the music of Miles Davis with Indian instrumentation! The players are a big part of the album's success – as they include Miles Davis alums like Gary Bartz on alto sax, Lenny White and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Imperial/EMI (Japan), 1956. Used
A great little album that's as hip as its cover image – one of 3 seminal mid 50s recordings for Imperial by LA altoist Sonny Criss! At this point in his career, Criss had a sharp-edged sound that could easily rival the best work by Sonny Stitt or Charlie Parker on the alto sax – but he ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
From The Hot Afternoon
A&M/CTI, 1969. Used
Incredible stuff – and a record that grows more and more important to us over the years! Desmond's best known as the icy alto behind Dave Brubeck's big records of the 50s, but by this point in his career, he'd developed a keen interest in Brazilian music – and was working at a level ... CD

Sky Dive
CTI, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A killer set from Freddie Hubbard's legendary years on CTI! Like the classic Red Clay album, there's 4 tunes here, all longer cuts – where everyone gets a chance to stretch out a bit, over smooth (but not too smooth!) electric grooves, supported by great orchestrations from Don Sebesky! Ron ... LP, Vinyl record album

J Mood
Columbia, 1986. Near Mint-
Wynton Marsalis is working in lean quartet formation here – no sax from brother Branford, whose own star was rising – and instead lots more room to really stretch out on his own languid lines on trumpet! The rest of the quartet features Marcus Roberts on piano, Robert Hurst on bass, ... LP, Vinyl record album
