✨✧ Sadik HakimBit Of Monk ... CD
Progressive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
A bit of Thelonious Monk from pianist Sadik Hakim – a good choice for the record, given how many sharp edges Hakim can always bring to his music! Yet there's also a warmer current here too – that way that after the late 70s, the music of Thelonious was finding its way into so many ... read more CD

Herb HallOld Tyme Modern ... CD
Sackville, 1969. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99

Lenny HambroMessage From Hambro ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $13.99
A bold little message from alto saxophonist Lenny Hambro – a very strong record that should have made him as much of a giant on his instrument as contemporary talents like Lee Konitz or Herb Geller! Hambro has some of the soulful edge of the latter, and lots of the crisp, modern chromes of ... read more CD

Lenny HambroNature of Things ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
An excellent album of tunes with a cool Konitz-like sound – featuring the vastly under-discovered reed work of Lenny Hambro, with piano by Eddie Costa, and guitar by either Sal Salvador or Barry Galbraith.
