Steeplechase (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Sparkling work from trumpeter Marcus Printup – a player who can blow with great power when needed, but also hit these slinky, soulful moments too – a balance that only seems to get better and better with each new record!

Joe PumaEast Coast Jazz ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the best records ever from guitarist Joe Puma – a player who offered his talents as a sideman on many great sessions of the 50s, but who really shines here as a leader on his own!

Bernard Purdie (Pretty Purdie)Soul Is...Pretty Purdie ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
A wild one! After the straight hard funk of some of his earlier recordings as a leader, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie breaks out here in a compelling album of soul jazz tracks done in a number of styles. The approach is sort of big studio funk – with some cuts that have a harder sound, ... read more CD

One of the most beautiful jazz recordings we've heard in a long time!

Gene Quill3 Bones & A Quill ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever recorded as a leader by alto saxophonist Gene Quill – and a "with trombones" session, as you might guess from the title! Quill's tone is really wonderful overall – crisp, yet soulful – and with an amazingly fluid feel that reminds us of the ... read more CD

Incredible work from one of Sun Ra's most enigmatic periods! The album was recorded in Italy in 1978, right around the same time as "Disco 2000" (and not too far off from Languidity) – and it features Ra playing around with lots of cool spacey keyboards, in a spare cosmic style ... read more CD

Saturn/Art Yard, Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99

Sue RaneyDreamsville – The Music Of Henry Mancini ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $14.99
Henry Mancini's best remembered as one of the most important instrumental film composers of the 60s and 70s – but the man also gave us a fair bit of vocal gems, too – great cuts that were co-composed with lyricists who include Johnny Mercer, Leslie Bricusse, Jay Livinston, and the team ...
