Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin' ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $19.99
The title's a bit bluesy, and the record is too – one of the grittier collaborations between Hammond legend Jimmy Smith and ultra-hip arranger Oliver Nelson – who manages to make the whole thing come across with all the right soul styles in the end!

Jimmy SmithPortuguese Soul ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $23.99
An oft-overlooked 70s gem from Jimmy! The album's got a smooth complicated sound – with very long tracks that open up, stretch out, and groove in a much more sophisticated way than some of Jimmy's 60s work for Verve. The approach is almost similar to Jack McDuff's complicated Blue Note ... (Jazz) read more CD

Lonnie Liston SmithLive! ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
The mighty Lonnie Liston Smith live – sounding every bit as great as he did on his famous studio sessions from the 70s – and maybe even more freewheeling too! The feel of the record is really tremendous – extremely soulful, with Lonnie jamming away on keyboards as the band ... (Jazz) read more CD

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesVisions Of A New World ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
Lonnie Liston Smith is really tightening up his groove on this one – bringing a bit more funk into the mix, and creating that amazingly sweet glide in his keyboard sound!

Some of the most beautiful, personal work we've heard from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith in many years – a wonderful set of duets with bassist John Lindberg – done at a level that recalls some of Smith's most organic, most spiritual sounds of the 70s! There's a real back to basics vibe ... (Jazz) read more CD

Glamann beats Dorothy Ashby on the jazz harp by a few years, and ... (Jazz) read more CD

Jalapeno (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Smoove & Turrell might have kind of a hokey look on the cover, but they get right down to business on this funky little record – hitting a tight groove that's heavy on influence from both soul and AOR styles from the 70s and early 80s!

King/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A Chicago blues gem – and some of the rarest material issued by King Records in the 60s – very gritty, earthy blues from singer Smokey Smothers – who gets plenty of help in the studio from a young Freddy King! Smothers has this raspy, almost casual style of singing – one ... (Blues) read more CD

Savant, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Fantastic work from reedman Jim Snidero – wrapped up tight here in the frontline with trumpeter Alex Sipiagin, a pair who come off with a hell of a lot of focus and power right from the very first note!

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99
A real lost gem on Bethlehem Records – and one of the few albums to feature this tremendous saxophonist in the lead!

Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
Spacey soul from Soia – a European singer who works closely here with producer Mez – who served up some great beats on their previous record together!

MPS (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $23.99
A suite for trio, and a sweet one too – a record that's maybe a bit less arch modern than some of Martial Solal's other sessions from the 70s – but no less creative overall!

Old Town/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
A hell of a tight doo wop group from the east coast scene of the late 50s – one who was often able to harmonize at breakneck speed, yet still come across with cool and class as well! That balance made the group equally great at groovers and ballads – the latter of which are maybe even ... (Soul) read more CD
