Willis JacksonAt Large ... CD
Prestige, 1960s. Used ... $4.99
Some killer soul jazz numbers from tenor giant Willis Jackson – including some tasty tracks from hard to find 60s LPs like Shuckin, Swivel Hips, Neapolitan Nights, In My Solitude, and Really Groovin.

✨✧ Willis JacksonBar Wars ... LP
Muse, 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The title's a bit hokey – an obvious play on the Star Wars film that was running in theaters at the time of the record – but the sound is classic Willis Jackson at his finest, recorded in a style that's right up there with his best 60s work for Prestige! The group here is a quintet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonBest Of Willis Jackson With Brother Jack McDuff ... LP
Prestige, 1960s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Willis Jackson and Jack McDuff were one of the greatest tenor and organ duos of the 60s – and this 6 track set pulls together some of their best sides together for Prestige Records, pulled from titles issued under either player's name, but which featured both of them with differing groups. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonBlue Gator ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Good+ ... $3.99
A massive early Prestige set from tenorist Willis Jackson – and just the kind of record that set him firmly in the soul jazz camp for the 60s! By the time of the set, Jackson had already won plenty of fame for his R&B-tinged work – but here, he stretches out a bit more, and really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has moderate surface wear, with some stains on the back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonCool Grits (aka Please Mr Jackson) ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good- ... $14.99
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has two cutout holes and some surface wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonGrease 'N' Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
Great work from our favorite period in Willis Jackson's career – really hard-burning material that helped set a new standard for the organ/tenor sound in soul jazz! The combo here is one of Jackson's best – with Carl Wilson on organ and Pat Martino (billed as Azzara) on guitar, really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow and black label NJ pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has some edge wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonPlays Around With The Hits ... LP
Trip, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Excellent Willis Jackson session from the early 70's that was produced by Paul Winley, and which has the same groovy funky jazz feel as some of Winley's other work from the time – like Harlem Underground. The record includes Willis' funky version of "Ain't No Sunshine" that was on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a stain on the opening.)

✨✧ Willis JacksonSoul Night/Live! ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Hard grooving with Willis – recorded during his incredible mid 60s years, when he had a great tone, a crack band, and an approach to the grooves that blew away most of his other work! Willis at this point is like Jack McDuff with his classic quartet – totally capable, working with all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has some edge wear and a small cutout notch.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonWay We Were ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The soulful sax of Willis Jackson meets the Philly Soul mecca of Sigma Sound – and the result is a surprisingly wonderful album! Willis blows in the lead on all tracks, supported by legendary Sigma players – and the sound is a lush and sweetly soulful one, almost an instrumental ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Willis JacksonYa Understand Me? ... LP
Muse, 1984. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Back to basics work from Willis Jackson – a live date recorded in France at the start of the 80s, but one that's done with a soul jazz vibe that recalls his 60s concert sets for Prestige! The group here is a quartet, with Richard Groove Holmes on Hammond – and the tracks are long and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis Jackson & Jack McDuffTogether Again, Again ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good ... $5.99
Gator Tail and Brother Jack crack it long and lean, with lots of hard soul jazz tracks that have the both of them wailing on their respective instruments. There's some nice originals here, including "Gil's Pills", "Snake Crawl", and "Backtrack". The set also includes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch, splitting on the spine, and minor staining on the back.)

✨✧ Willis Jackson with Von FreemanLockin' Horns ... LP
Muse, 1981. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A Texas tenor takes on one of Chicago's mightiest reedmen! Worth it for the presence of Freeman alone (only a handful of recordings exist of the man), this live date from '78 features Gator and Von fronting a heavy, heavy band with Carl Wilson, Yusef Ali, and Joe(as in "Boogaloo") Jones. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Illinois JacquetBlues – That's Me! ... LP
Prestige, 1970. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A late 60s set, but one that recalls the sweet swinging style of Prestige Records' Swingville sessions from the early part of the decade! Illinois Jacquet sounds wonderful here on tenor (and a bit of bassoon on one track!) – blowing with plenty of open space amidst a lineup that includes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Illinois JacquetFlying Home ... LP
Imperial, Early 50s. Very Good ... $3.99
A great little album that appears to compile sides that Jacquet cut for the Aladdin label earlier in the 50s (or 40s?), issued here by Imperial during the late 50s as a full LP. The tracks are a great mix of jazz and R&B, with that heavy pyrotechnic style that Jacquet used often with Hampton, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has split seams with a few spots of tape.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Illinois JacquetIllinois Jacquet ... CD
Legacy/Epic, 1962. Used ... $3.99
Excellent late work by Illinois Jacquet – right on a par with his best recordings for Verve, and a great example of the strength of his tenor playing, which didn't always surface as well in large group recordings. The record features Jacquet in the company of a number of smaller groups ... read more CD
(Out of print.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Illinois JacquetIllinois Jacquet & His Tenor Sax ... LP
Aladdin, Late 40s. Sealed ... $19.99
An excellent LP collection of Jacquet's early work for the Aladdin label – hard-grooving numbers cut on the heels of his fame with the Lionel Hampton group, a mixture of swing, bop, and a bit of R&B. Titles include "Sahara Heat", "Illinois Blows The Blues", "Goofi ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Illinois JacquetNice Jazz 1978 ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Illinois Jacquet is one of those old school tenorists who never let his talents falter, even when he was far from the limelight – as you'll hear here on a great set of performances recorded live in France in the late 70s! The tracks are long, open, and relaxed – and really seem to ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Illinois JacquetPort Of Rico ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $34.99
One of Illinois Jacquet's all-time classics – and a great little album that features Count Basie grooving away on organ! The session was cut during the early 50s, and it features small groups of hard swinging players that include Cecil Payne, Matthew Gee, Ray Brown, and Hank Jones, who also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing, with a trumpeter logo and deep groove! Cover has a split top seam & spine.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Illinois Jacquet & Ben WebsterKid & The Brute ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... $14.99
The title's a bit misleading – as a number of the tracks on here were recorded by Jacquet, and Webster only sat in on two longer jamming numbers – "I Wrote This For The Kid" and "The Kid & The Brute". Not that that's a problem – as those long numbers take ... read more CD
