MPS (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $23.99
Funky and Latiny!

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the few dates as a leader from reedman Eddie Shu – an excellent player who made some big waves in large bands of the late 40s – but who sounds even better here in a small combo setting! Eddie plays tenor and alto beautifully – with a tone that's as clean and clear as some ... read more CD

Jimmy SmithPortuguese Soul ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $23.99
An oft-overlooked 70s gem from Jimmy! The album's got a smooth complicated sound – with very long tracks that open up, stretch out, and groove in a much more sophisticated way than some of Jimmy's 60s work for Verve.
