Lou Stein8 For Kicks 4 For Laughs ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $9.99
A unique little record – with some surprisingly nice touches! At some level, the record's got the feel of some of the east coast chamber jazz sets of the time – particularly those on Bethelehm and RCA – but at another level, there's a much more playful feel here, one that breaks ... read more CD

Matthew StevensPreverbal ... CD
Crystal M+th/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Guitarist Matthew Stevens works here in a style we might call post-fusion – as it's got all the electric energy of the genre in the 70s – but also opens up in so many different sonic and textural possibilities! The album really blurs the line between individual performance and larger ... read more CD

Sonny Stitt37 Minutes & 48 Seconds ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $9.99
The title might sound a bit clinical, but the music within is anything but – and instead is that sort of special, magical work that always makes Sonny Stitt a real cut above most of his contemporaries! The notes try to link Stitt to Charlie Parker – but apart from a postwar sense of ... read more CD

Sonny StittBroadway Soul ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A lost Sonny Stitt session from the 60s – but wonderfully swinging, and with a groove that really works well! The album's a set of Broadway tunes played jazz-wise – but in the hands of Stitt, they come up wonderfully – stretching out with soulful intensity that's mighty nice, ... read more CD

Sonny StittDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Back To My Own Home Town ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1979. New Copy ... $7.99
A late life session from Sonny Stitt – and a great one, too – as the set's got the saxophone giant really opening up in the relaxed, easygoing space of the Black & Blue label studio – which allows Sonny to hit the soulful vibe of his classic recordings on Roost and Verve! The ... read more CD

Sonny StittSaxophones Of Sonny Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
Magical Stitt work on Roost – an album of marked understatement, from the simple title, standard cover, and lack of session details on the back – all of which might make you think "oh yeah, heard this one before." But one drop of the needle opens the album up immediately ... read more CD

Sonny StittSonny Side Of Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $9.99
Sublime work from Stitt! The record has a subtle genius that's impossible to describe with words – as Stitt's tone and economy on the album's solos are the pure stuff that you only find after panning through an endless stream of post-bop LPs by players of his generation. The album's ... read more CD

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $9.99
One of Sonny Stitt's amazing albums for Roost – a record with a beautifully mature conception of bop soloing, and a totally confident tone throughout! There's an understated brilliance here that's nearly impossible to describe in words – a sense of placement, timing, and phrasing that's ... read more CD

Sonny StittStitt Goes Latin ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
Sonny Stitt goes Latin – and the results are tremendous! The set's still got all the soulful feel of the best Stitt sessions for Roost, but it brings in some nice Latin rhythms too – inflecting things with that blend of soul jazz and congas you might find over at Prestige or Blue Note, ... read more CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $9.99
After years of staying free of comparisons with Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt steps confidently into a set of compositions by the late, great one – sounding really wonderful in his own interpretations of these classics!

✨✧ Sonny Stitt & OthersMatadores Meet The Bull ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
A strange one for Sonny Stitt – but also a real gem! The album has Sonny, who'd been working for the Roost/Roulette label, coming together with other jazz players in the same boat, plus Latin musicians who were recording for the related Tico label. Moishe Levy never made such a good talent ... read more CD

Blue Note, 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The reed talents of Marcus Strickland hit the sound of the new Blue Note – with wonderful results! The album was produced by Meshell Ndegeocello, and has a much more electric vibe than some of Marcus' other records – an angular, snakey sort of groove that really shows Meshell's ... read more CD

Al Strong Music, 2015. New Copy ... $5.99
Trumpeter Al Strong is a new talent to our ears, but he grabs us right from the get-go on this excellent self-released set – the kind of top-shelf set that could make Strong a big name in jazz in years to come!

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $28.99
A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the ... read more CD

Lew Tabackin, 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
A really compelling album from reedman Lew Tabackin – a set that has Lew working in a very open trio setting – which is quite a change from his best-known performances in his big band with Toshiko Akioshi! Of courses, Lew has recorded in smaller groups before – but this one's got ... read more CD

Teichiku/Think (Japan), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
Don't think "British rock", think "electric jazz" – as the set features some long, jamming instrumental workouts that are more in a heavy fusion mode overall! The group's a quintet – led by drummer Kiyoshi Tanaka, and featuring organ, guitar, bass, and some very ... read more CD
