Sanctified, indeed – and just the kind of record to show why Slide Hampton was unlike any of his trombone-playing contemporaries! The set's got a tightness and punch that's really unique – not the compact quality of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding, but also not the hardbop of Curtis Fuller either – instead king of a rousing approach to jazz trombone that really makes Hampton the kind of the soul jazz approach to the instrument! Slide's working here with a cool octet that has the focus of a group half their size – a really well-chosen lineup of young, hip players that includes George Coleman on tenor sax, Hobart Dotson and Richard Williams on trumpets, Larry Ridley on bass, and additional trombone from a y oung Charles Greenlee! Titles include "El Sino", "Ow", "Milestones", and the stormin' title cut "Somethin Sanctified".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Push Push
Embryo (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of Herbie Mann's biggest albums – and one of his funkiest too! The cover's a bit of an off-putter – although it probably helped sell the record, back in the day – but the grooves are as rock-solid as anything that Herbie cut at the time – tight, focused, and a perfect ... CD

Columbia (Japan), 1964. New Copy
The great Earl Hines, heard here in a really fresh setting for the 60s – a "new" trio that features Ahmed Abdul Malik on bass and Oliver Jackson on drums – both players whose modern energy really adds a lot to Hines' legendary work on piano! The meeting of generations is ... CD

Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy
A really unique little chapter in the career of Shorty Rogers – and a near-lost record that's one of his best from the 60s! As you might guess from the title, the set was recorded as a sort of "stereo dynamics" album – post-bachelor pad, but in a mode that was very concerned ... CD

Epic (Japan), 1958. New Copy
A great pianist with a really bold sound – strong, fresh, and clean – but without any hoke at all! Dave McKenna's certainly not one of the biggest names in 50s piano jazz, but these sides rival the best in the trio format at the time – a set of familiar tunes and a few lesser-know ... CD

Columbia (Japan), 1958. New Copy 2 CDs
A totally unique, totally mindblowing album from Erroll Garner – and the set that made us finally fall in love with his music forever! Sure, Garner can be great on other albums – but here, he's really hitting this amazing vibe – stretching out in this rhythmic way that pushes his ... CD

Swingin' With Bud
RCA (Japan), 1957. New Copy
One of the few Bud Powell sessions cut for RCA, but a brilliantly swinging date that has the pianist working at the height of his powers! There's an edge here that comes through right from the start – an off kilter vibe in both Bud's tone, and even in the way he's vocalizing joyously in the ... CD

Indo-Jazz Fusions
Atlantic (Japan), 1967. New Copy
The best of British modern jazz meets the world of post-colonial music on the London scene – and the result is a groundbreaking blend of cultural styles! Reedman Joe Harriott and his trumpeter Shake Keane both brought a fresh West Indian sensibility to the London scene in the 50s – and ... CD

Interaction
Atlantic (Japan), 1963. New Copy
A magnificent set from the team of Art Farmer and Jim Hall – one of those rare pairings in jazz that somehow comes off sounding even way better than the sum of its parts – and that's saying a lot, given that the parts here are already pretty darn great! Farmer's flugelhorn and Hall's ... CD

Quicksand
Atlantic (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A really rare album from trumpeter Ted Curson – a unique 70s session recorded for Atlantic Records, but only ever issued overseas at the time! The date has Ted's trumpet coming into play with some of the electric touches of the 70s – not a full-on fusion record, but a really great ... CD

Prairie Dog
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Dark genius from Duke Pearson – quite possibly one of his hippest records ever, and an album that's filled with surprising twists and turns! At one level, the set seems to be a simple batch of soul jazz tunes – in the mode of Pearson's mid-60s classics on Blue Note – but at ... CD

Live At Montreux
Atlantic (Japan), 1972. New Copy
The 70s genius of Les McCann – opened up here wonderfully in the space of a double-length live performance! Tracks are all nice and long – and Les steps out strongly on Fender Rhodes and clavinet, ringing out with amazing tones that are really wonderful – kind of the electric ... CD

King/Queens
Atlantic (Japan), 1970. New Copy
One of Rufus Harley's beautiful albums for Atlantic, and a record that shouldn't work at all – but it does, and does so wonderfully! Harley plays bagpipes throughout the album – but in a way that sounds nothing like any of the snoozy Scottish assumptions you may have about the ... CD
