Bent JaedigBent Jaedig Was Here – Live At Montmartre 1969 ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
Never-heard work from tenorist Bent Jaedig – easily one of the most important figures on the Danish jazz scene in the 60s! Bent's working here in a loose, open style that's quite different from some of his more tightly arranged albums of the decade – a mode that's still got lots of ... read more CD

✨✧ Khan Jamal QuartetDark Warrior ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1984. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
A sweet little set – and a strong international meeting of talents, of the sort European labels were fond of putting together at the time! The group has a cohesive sound, as all have experience in both out and more swinging styles – and the great, and under-recorded, Charles Tyler ... read more CD

Keith JarrettSomewhere Before ... CD
Vortex (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderful illustration of the inherent sense of beauty in Keith Jarrett's early work – an approach to piano that was simple, straightforward, and marked by a ringing sense of tone that's evident in the very first note of the set! Jarrett here isn't trying to break any rules in jazz piano, ... read more CD

Jazzovy Orchestr Cechoslovenskeho RozhlasuJazz Ze Studia A (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Panton/GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Searing sounds from one of the coolest ensembles working on the Czech scene of the 70s – a group who mix big band modes with sweet electric touches – in a style that's like some of the hipper acts on the MPS label at the time! The approach is very much like a Clark Boland Big Band ... read more CD

Paul JeffreyPaul Jeffrey ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A full, funky set from tenorist Paul Jeffrey – a set that has the lesser-known player backed by a large group of west coast all-stars – including Blue Mitchell on trumpet, David T Walker on guitar, and Joe Sample on keyboards! There's a tighter sound here than on some of Jeffrey's ... read more CD

Paul JeffreyWatershed ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
An unusual sort of setting for tenor saxophonist Paul Jeffrey – an overlooked player from the east coast scene of the early 70s, and one who only cut a handful of records at the time! The date features Jack Wilkins on guitar, playing with these bright chromatic hues next to Jeffrey's sharper ... read more CD

Erik JekabsonErik Jekabson Quintet ... CD
Wide Hive, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
Sharp trumpet from leader Erik Jekabson – but a set that seems to draw equally as much energy from guitarist Dave MacNab – whose curving, colorful lines really shape the sound of the record! The rhythm core is also pretty great too – bassist John Wiitala and drummer Hamir Atwal, ... read more CD

A great run of records from Alphonso Johnson – the best of his career, wrapped up here in one sweet set! First up is Moonshadows – one of the earliest of bassist Alphonso Johnson's funky fusion albums for Epic! Moonshadows is a nice little set of choppy grooves that recalls the best ... read more CD

Elvin JonesAnd Then Again ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweet early date as a leader from Elvin Jones – one that has him working strongly away from a John Coltrane setting, with some hip arrangements by Melba Liston! Elvin brings in some excellent accompaniment from two other Joneses as well – Thad on cornet and Hank on piano – both ... read more CD

Etta JonesEtta Jones Sings (Roulette) ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $14.99
An overlooked gem from jazz singer Etta Jones – an effort cut around the same time as her better-known records for Prestige, but one that's maybe done with an even hipper sound overall! Etta's nicely laidback, and hits that soulful, singing mood that makes her so great right from the start ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Jonah JonesNice Jazz 1978 ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
You might know trumpeter Jonah Jones best from his crossover jazz hit records of the 50s and 60s – especially his albums for Capitol – but by the time the 70s rolled around, Jones was really going back to his roots, as you'll hear here on a nice set of live tracks recorded in France! ... read more CD

✨✧ Sam JonesVisitation ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1978. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
One of the strongest statements ever recorded by bassist Sam Jones – a wickedly soulful session that cooks on all burners! The album's got a rich depth that far surpasses most of Jones' trio sessions – and is a full quintet album, with Terumasa Hino on cornet, Bob Berg on tenor, Ronnie ... read more CD

Sean JonesLive From Jazz At The Bistro ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A wonderful live set from trumpeter Sean Jones – one that has him really stretching out on some extended performances, and maybe blowing with more of an edge than ever before! The core group here is excellent – with Orrin Evans on piano, who's always a hit in our book, and who really ... read more CD

Clifford JordanFirm Roots ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1975. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A great little album from Jordan – one of a number of very hip sessions he cut in the mid 70s, working with his Magic Triangle group that included Cedar Walton on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. The group come together with an energy that's extremely rare – ... read more CD

Hideto KanaiConcierto De Aranjuez (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $26.99
Despite the "concierto" in the title, the album's a relatively stripped-down studio affair – a spacious set played by the quintet of Japanese bassist Hideto Kanai, with a lineup that features some especially great work on saxes! The tracks here are all quite long, and there's a bit ... read more CD

Kandinsky EffectPax 6 ... CD
Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
A jazz trio, but one with a very unique vibe – given that, in addition to familiar saxes, bass, and drums – the group also uses a fair bit of effects as well! The drums are often echoey and thunderous, the basslines nicely bumping, and the tones of the saxophone can go off in all sorts ... read more CD

Fumio KarashimaMy Favorite Things ... CD
Pit Inn (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the most spiritual albums we've heard in years from pianist Fumio Karashima – a set that has the Japanese jazz legend working with a host of different guests, including some horn players who really give his music some depth! The choice of material is great – and Karashima ... read more CD

Fumio KarashimaSummertime ... CD
Pit Inn (Japan), 2011. New Copy ... $21.99
A fantastic quintet session from this hip Japanese pianist – an artist we love for his work of the 70s, and who really takes off here in the company of two different saxophonists! The set's got a wonderfully open, spontaneous live feeling – as Fumio Karashima lays out these soaring ... read more CD

Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $18.99
Rare Japanese live material from the legendary Kashmere Stage Band – a southern group made up from very young musicians – but one that comes across with a wickedly funky vibe!

Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99
A stunning batch of funky big band tracks from the Kashmere Stage Band – sounding a lot fuller than on their first LP – thanks to an expanded lineup that gives them a whole new sound!
