CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Concord, 1984. Used
Guitarist Jim Hall is a player who's always realized he sounds best in a small, intimate setting – whether in his 50s trio recordings with Jimmy Giuffre, or his 60s classics with Bill Hall, or his 70s experiments with bassist Ron Carter – and this live date for Concord really revives ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Dusty Groove, 1966. Used
Tremendous work from the legendary Prince Lasha – a rare UK-only date from 1966 – and one that has the reedman working away from more familiar contemporaries like Sonny Simmons and Eric Dolphy! The approach on this session is very unique – as Lasha includes harp with the ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Retro Afric (UK), 1950s. Used
Great 50s work from the father of highlife, ET Mensah! Starting in the late 40s Mensah took over the helm of Ghana's Tempos and pushed African pop music away from the dominant European model that was popular in urban areas, injecting his music with rhythms from the Caribbean – cha chas, ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Universal (France), 1954/1955. Used
2 postwar trad jazz sessions from Paris – both recorded with a laidback sense of freedom that was rare for the American scene at the time! The first 8 tracks on the CD are from a 10" LP recorded by Albert Nicholas with his "New Orleans Friends", a group that included Claude ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. Used
Amazing sounds from the pre-Ayatollah years in Iran – an incredible blend of different global influences, coming together in the sort of sound you'd expect from one of the most progressive scenes in the Mid-East! The work here has some of the same psych elements of Turkish work from the time ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Timeless (Holland), Late 20s. Used
Includes tracks by Lloyd Finlay & His Orchestra, Randolph McCurtain's College Ramblers, Fatty Martin's Orchestra, Jimmy Joy's St Anthony's Hotel Orchestra, Fred Gardner's Texas University Troubadours, Leroy's Dallas Band, and Troy Floyd & His Plaza Hotel Orchestra. CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Back To Back
Malaco, 1988. Used
Little Milton's in some wonderful company here – recording at the best Malaco level of the 80s, which means an equal dose of deep soul and blues! Milton's voice has only gotten better over the years – and he's honestly a more expressive singer here than during the Chess years, really ... CD (Blues)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Razor & Tie, 1970s/Early 80s. Used
Although we have to admit that we're mostly partial to Jon Lucien's early work for RCA, this collection does a good job of spanning his whole career, while still keeping the quality level high! Jon's voice never faltered in all the years of his recording work – and as this 17 track set will ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Breakthrough (32 Jazz)
32 Jazz, 1972. Used
One of the last great albums that Hank Mobley ever cut! Although Mobley's 70s output was nothing compared to his 60s Blue Note work, this 1972 session for Cobblestone/Muse is a winner, and features the aging tenorist co-leading a crack quintet with Cedar Walton, and featuring Billy Higgins, Sam ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CTI, 1975. Used
One of Jim Hall's most compelling albums from the 70s – a mix of lightly swinging tunes and more complicated numbers, recorded with some of his best partners from earlier years! Chet Baker is on trumpet, Paul Desmond is on alto sax – and the rest of the group includes Ron Carter bass, ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fantasy, Early/Mid 50s. Used
Incredible stuff! The CD features work from four seminal modern mid 50s groups – all recorded at the Blackhawk nightclub in San Francisco at the height of their powers. About half the CD features work by a young Charlie Mariano – playing here with a sextet that includes Dick Collins ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Impulse, 1961. Used
Killer stuff by Art Blakey – one of his few non-Blue Note sessions from the time, and a hard-wailing set that features the Jazz Messengers as a sextet! The format is one that flourished briefly in these early 60s years – and in this case, the already great lineup of Lee Morgan on ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Verve, 1949/1950. Used
24 tracks in all. CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Retro Afric (UK), 1960s. Used
More great stuff from the high priest of Ghanaian highlife, ET Mensah! While his earlier CD on RetroAfric focused on 50s material exclusively, this one features a bunch of his work from the 60s, when he eagerly enfolded new influences into the Tempos sound and tightened up the attack. While ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Vanusa (1973)
Continental/Warner (Brazil), 1973. Used
A very unusual album from little-known Brazilian singer Vanusa – one that's got a sound that's as compelling as her slightly hippie-ish look on the cover! The style here is sometimes in a mellow and romantic mode – but the record has a fair bit of 70s singer-songwriter touches too ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Crime Scene
ECM (Germany), 2010. Used
Almost a soundtrack of sorts from guitarist Terje Rypdal – given that the crime-related titles of the instrumental tracks almost have a narrative power on their own! The album features a core quartet with Rypdal on electric guitar, Palle Mikkelborg on trumpet, Stale Storlokken on Hammond, ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MPS/Promising (Germany), 1976. Used Gatefold
One of the headiest albums ever from reedman Charlie Mariano – a far cry from the icy modernism of his work in the 50s! The set's recorded in a full-on MPS electric mode – plenty of fusion touches in the mix, thanks to a lineup that includes Zbigniew Seifert on electric violin, Jan ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rip Curl (Japan), 2001. Used
A fragile album of bossa loveliness from Ana Martins – the daughter of Joyce and composer Nelson Angelo! Angelo helps Martins quite a bit with this album – providing arrangements, guitar, piano, and a bit of guest vocal – and the overall style is gentle bossa, almost in the mode ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tzadik, 2010. Used
Quiet beautiful film work from John Zorn – his score for the Netherlands made black comedy The Nobel Prizewinner – an intimate and moody piano jazz trio set composed by Zorn and played by Rob Burger on piano, Trevor don on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums & vibes! The compositions ... CD (Jazz)
