Eric GrantCool At The Casa Montego ... CD
Federal/Dub Store, 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
Not the usual sort of reggae or rocksteady you might expect from the Jamaican scene in the 60s – but instead a brilliant set of jazz work that shows the roots of so many styles to come! The work here isn't straight jazz – as in an American mode – but the group does have a sextet ... (Reggae, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Great Jazz TrioStandard Collection Vol 1 ... CD
Limetree/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... $13.99
A bit of a variation on Hank Jones' Great Jazz Trio – at least in comparison to the group's better-known records from the Japanese scene in the late 70s and early 80s – but a variation that brings along some mighty nice changes, too! The rhythm section duo here is especially vibrant ... read more CD

Blue Note, 1962. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 20.98
Although Grant Green has been getting a lot of attention lately for his heavy-duty funk work of the late 60s, it's the subtly beautiful work of the early 60's that first caught our attention years ago. From the start of his young career, Green was an amazing player who had developed a unique ... read more CD

Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99

Steve GrossmanHold The Line ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... $20.99 24.99
Steve Grossman's doing way more than just holding the line here – as the album has him moving forward strongly with a firmly classic sound on his tenor!

Steve GrossmanStandards ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
Tenorist Steve Grossman's a hell of a player in so many different settings – but we're especially fond of the mid 80s stretch in which he made this record – a time when Steve had learned from all of his bolder, more dynamic moments of the 70s – and was able to fold them back into ... read more CD

Dave GrusinKaleidoscope ... CD
Columbia (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $8.99
A very hip early album from the young Dave Grusin – quite different than both his later soundtrack and fusion fame, and a really tight record with a sharp hardbop vibe! The group here is excellent – with strong tenor from Frank Foster, and cornet from Thad Jones – and super-sharp ... read more CD

Tord GustavsenWhat Was Said ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A jazz vocal set, but one that offers up a very different version of the format – as the dark vision of pianist Tord Gustavsen is shaped here by singer Simin Tander – who can move between sweet moments, poetic passages, and some much moodier moments! The tunes include a fair bit of ... read more CD
Also available What Was Said (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP 31.99
