Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My Favorite Things" a million times – but it still blows our mind the way Coltrane hits this incredibly soulful modal groove, twisting and turning on soprano sax, always keeping things interesting, so that we're surprised that the cut's 13 minutes have gone by so quickly! The rest of the record's equally great – and the 3 other long cuts are "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Summertime" and "But Not for Me". As great today as when it was cut, and still one of Coltrane's most revelatory albums! With McCoy Tyner on piano, Steve Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums.

Atlantic/Rhino, 1961. Used Gatefold
The title gets it right – as the album's easily the closest thing to free jazz that Ornette Coleman ever recorded – an album-length improvisation played by a "double quartet" that's overflowing with classic players! The style here is a fair bit like John Coltrane's Ascension ... CD

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1973. Used
Sweet electric funk from Robin Kenyatta – but a set with some slightly complicated moments too! The album's a bit like some of Yusef Lateef's more electric moments on Atlantic, although probably not as cerebral overall – and Robin plays a range of reeds, including alto, flute, and ... CD

Atlantic/Collectables, 1955/1956. Used
These two records for Atlantic represent some of the best Shorty Rogers work of the 50s! Unlike his RCA sessions, which could get a bit too formulaic, both of these are a bit more open-ended, with slightly longer tracks than usual, and with different groupings of west coast players (Jimmy Giuffre, ...

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1977. Used
A tasty batch of uptempo instrumentals by Art Webb – a lesser-known funky flute player, but one who played on a huge amount of Latin sessions during the 70s (check your session notes, and you'll see his name a surprising amount of times!) This fairly obscure session as a leader was produced ... CD
