Horace SilverYou Gotta Take A Little Love ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
A great late 60s gem from pianist Horace Silver – and a great bridge between his earlier soul jazz for Blue Note, and some of his more righteous work to come in the 70s! At one level, the sound here steps off from classics like Serenade To A Soul Sister or The Jody Grind – but at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Norman SimmonsMidnight Creeper ... LP
Milljac, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Great work from the trio that backed up Betty Carter in the early 70s – pianist Norman Simmons, bassist Lisle Atkinson, and drummer Al Harewood! The group play with a gentle groove that has an easygoing soul jazz quality on most tracks – and the set features a strong Simmons original ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny SimmonsStaying On The Watch ... LP
ESP, 1966. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant work – and one of the rare few albums to feature the genius alto of Sonny Simmons from the 60s! The session has the fierceness of other ESP sessions from the time, but it's also tempered with a bit of spiritualism, too – somewhat more introspective in the heavy moments than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice 60s pressing. Vinyl and cover are great!)

Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Art Farmer, & OthersJazz Goes Broadway ... LP
Vik, 1957. Very Good- ... $14.99
Jazz-meets-Broadway session, in the typical RCA vein from this period. Elliot Lawrence, Al Cohn, and Manny Albam did the arrangements, and the group's got the usual suspects – Cohn, Sims, Gene Quill, etc – playing in tight ensemble format. Titles include "Just In Time", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithBest Of Jimmy Smith (Verve) ... LP
Verve, 1960s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
A great little collection of Jimmy's tight tight tight Hammond sides cut for Verve during the 60s – with backings by Oliver Nelson and Lalo Schifrin, plus a few other sides in smaller combo format. Tracks include "Walk On The Wild Side", "Ol Man River", "The Cat" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithIt's Necessary ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $0.99
One of Jimmy's last albums for a major label in the 70s – a real back-to-basics set that was recorded live at the Jimmy Smith Supper Club in LA – the "home of fried cornbread and live jazz", and a venue that we certainly wish we could have visited! Jimmy's working here with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithPaid In Full ... LP
Mojo, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Lost funky work from Jimmy Smith – issued on his own small Mojo Records label, which he formed after leaving Verve in the early 70s. The album features 4 long tracks – played by by Jimmy in a hip small combo with Larry Gales on bass, Ray Crawford on guitar, Donald Dean on drums, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithPlain Talk (Applause pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Applause, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A very nice groover from Jimmy – and a session that was recorded earlier, but not issued by Blue Note until the end of the 60s. The format is hard-wailing sextet – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Ike Quebec on tenor, and Jackie McLean on alto. Jimmy's usual trio at the time holds the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithRoot Down (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Verve, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Once an overlooked late Verve album, now a solid classic – and easily one of the funkiest albums ever from organist Jimmy Smith! The groove here is far different than the more familiar Jimmy Smith Verve sessions of the 60s – and the tracks open up in a really extended mode – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith/Wilson LewesDon Gardner Trio Featuring Jimmy Smith ... LP
Guest Star, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The Jimmy Smith numbers on here are nothing special – 2 cuts recorded in the early days, when with the combo of Don Gardner. But the real gems are the Wilson Lewes numbers – a host of cool instrumentals that include "Down Home", "Soul Sermon", "Hip Waltz", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hammond SmithDirty Grape ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Excellent work from Johnny Hammond Smith – a record that really lives up to the "dirty" in the title! The approach here is a bit like some of Jimmy McGriff's recordings at the end of the 60s – organ soloist riffing around on some short hard tracks, with a bit of electric bass ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Johnny Hammond SmithStinger ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good ... $24.99
A great little groover from Johnny Hammond Smith – and one of his rarest albums! The record may be rare because it's got a strange cover that features a comic character that looks like the Green Lantern, and Prestige might have gotten nervous about copyright infringement – but more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lonnie Liston SmithExotic Mysteries ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of the fullest-sounding albums ever cut by Lonnie Liston Smith – but one of the greatest albums too! The set has Smith really taking off a bit more than on his work for RCA or Flying Dutchman – hitting some fuller sounds in the studio, thanks to backings arranged by Berg DeCoteaux, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover is still in the shrinkwrap with a hype sticker.)

Lonnie Liston SmithRenaissance ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
A massively sweet groover from Lonnie and the Cosmic Echoes – smoother and warmer than some of his earlier albums, with a really soulful fusion vibe! Lonnie plays acoustic piano and "electric colorations" – working with a group that includes brother Donald on flute and vocals ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie SmithWhen The Night Is Right ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Great later work from Lonnie Smith – a set that's quite different than his initial Hammond material for Blue Note – but equally excellent in its own sort of way! The album has Lonnie playing both Fender Rhodes and organ – the former with this sweet, tight groove that's mighty ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
