Beautiful work from Franco Cerri – a really unique guitar jazz session that features his talents in a host of different settings! The players vary throughout the set – so that one number only features a duo with bass, but others feature larger lineups that include Gianni Basso on tenor, Dino Piana on trombone, Oscar Valdambrini on trumpet, Renato Sellani on piano, and Giancarlo Barigozzi on flute – all key Italian players of the 60s who really get room to sparkle on the record! Cerri's tone runs from smoothly jazzy on the group numbers to a bit more raw and personal on some of the more stripped-down ones – and titles include "Chit Car", "Blues For Jo", "Bassezza", "New Nova", "Stardust", and "Blues Dei Framasteni".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A great pianist in a really great trio – on a record that's wonderful not just for the piano lines of Fumio Karashima, but also for the bass of Isao Suzuki and drums of George Otsuka! All three players were really reinventing the sound of jazz on the Japanese scene of the 70s – and all ... CD

Modern Jazz
Teichiku/Think (Japan), 1960. New Copy
An early gem from Hidehiko "Sleepy" Matsumoto – easily one of the greatest players on the Japanese scene of the postwar years, and a tenorist who we might easily compare to the great Hank Mobley! This album's got the same sort of soulful subtlety of Mobley's classic Soul Station ... CD

Strata East/Think (Japan), 1973. New Copy Gatefold
A highly percussive little album – and the first-ever appearance of the M'Boom ensemble on record! You might know the group from their later fame under the guidance of Max Roach, but here the combo is a much more equally-assembled cast of players – featuring not just Roach, but ... CD

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A mighty soulful set from the group of bassist Takahashi Mizuhashi – served up in a really strong range of sounds that are spun out over the album's very long tracks! The set begins with a soulful rendition of "When A Man Loves A Woman", but then soars into freer jazz territory at ... CD

Jazz Messengers (Columbia) (with bonus tracks)
Columbia, 1956. New Copy

Sun Goddess
Columbia, 1974. New Copy
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the ... CD

Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1980. New Copy
A totally wonderful little record – not just a funky 70s soundtrack, but an excellent jazz outing as well – thanks to the talents of Hubert Laws on flute and Earl Klugh on guitar! Patrick Williams wrote and arranged the whole set – and he merges his jazzier roots with some of his ... CD

Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy
A tightly swinging batch of late 30s jazz and nascent rhythm & blues numbers from the early 40s – the pivotal period in which veteran players of the grander swing orchestras of the years prior were paring down into smaller combo – and knocking out a grittier, more primal sound! It's ... CD

Mental Shake
OTOroku (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
A brilliant free improvisation from a really great lineup – a quartet that brings together the legendary reed work of Peter Brotzmann and the vibes of Jason Adasiewicz – already great enough on their own, but matched here with the bass of John Edwards and drums of Steve Noble – ... CD
