A wonderful pairing of talents – the moody, enigmatic piano of Ran Blake – and the sharp-toned alto of Anthony Braxton! The set's a sublime piano/sax duet to match similar experiments by Mal Waldron and Marion Brown, or Archie Shepp and Dollar Brand – and it's an added plus for folks like us who dig the straighter side of Braxton's playing – as the set's mostly built around jazz standards, which are put forth in these core, blocky, modernist modes by Blake – then given a soulful finish on the top by Braxton! Titles include "Four", "Soul Eyes", "Just Friends", "Round Midnight", and "Yardbird Suite".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dootone/Boplicity (UK), 1956. New Copy
One of the few albums as a leader cut by legendary LA pianist Carl Perkins – an amazing talent on his instrument, and one who had an unusual "sideways" approach to the keys! Perkins kind of leaned alongside the piano – so that his body was parallel to the instrument, and his ... CD

Flying Dutchman/International Phonograph, 1969. New Copy Gatefold
Spectacular work from one of the most groundbreaking groups of its time – the legendary John Carter/Bobby Bradford Quartet – quite possibly the hippest thing going in the LA scene of the late 60s! The group includes Carter on alto and tenor, Bradford on trumpet – working together ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1958. New Copy
A great little album that's every bit as wonderful as you might expect from its cover – one of the key late 50s sides as a leader from bassist Curtis Counce – cut with a killer lineup that includes Harold Land on tenor sax, Rolf Ericson on trumpet, and Elmo Hope on piano! The set's got ... CD
Mysteries (LP sleeve edition)
Tzadik, 2013. New Copy
A really wonderful little record – one headed up by John Zorn, but actually featuring instrumentation from the trio of Bill Frisell on guitar, Kenny Wollesen on vibes, and Carol Emanuel on harp! The mix of instruments is wonderful – and rings out here with gentle progressions that ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1957. New Copy
One of the best albums ever from reedman Buddy Collette – a great small group session with a harder edge than some of Buddy's later records for bigger labels! Collette was always one of the more interesting players from the LA scene of the 50s – and although he had his roots in harder ... CD
Deodato 2
CTI, 1973. New Copy
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1981. New Copy Gatefold
Roky Erickson's fantastic early 80s solo material – tracks that were produced by Creedence Clearwater Revival's Stu Cook – with some of the most straight-forward and accessible rockers in Roky's canon, but still sporting his trademark eccentricity! Given his mythical personal history, ... CD
Cameo/Real Gone, Early 60s. New Copy
The complete Cameo Recordings of Jo Ann Campbell – a really unusual singer who first popped up in the earliest days of rock n roll, and who's working here at sort of a second chapter of her too-short career! The style is a mix of older rock and country modes with a tighter 60s sense of girl ... CD
Fresh, 1988. New Copy
EPMD's incredible full length debut – straight up classic hip hop that gave the genre a whole new twist. Bottom heavy funked up Long Island hip hop with what was considered slow flow rhymes at the time, and Erick and Parrish's take on funky samples that managed to bring together hard to get ... CD
