Artie ShawI Can't Get Started ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1953. New Copy ... $11.99
A surprisingly wonderful album from Artie Shaw – one that takes his older groove and nicely strips it down for the 50s, and which features some especially great guitar work from Tal Farlow! Other players in the group include Hank Jones on piano, Joe Roland on vibes, Tommy Potter on bass, and ... read more CD

George ShearingWay We Are ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $15.99
Funky and Latiny! Although we don't normally dig records by George Shearing, this cool 1974 session for MPS is a nice groover with a good 70's sound that adds a lot of tight rhythm to Shearing's often-sleepy playing – coming up with a whole new sound that has some really wonderful moments! ... read more CD

Archie SheppFour For Trane ... CD
Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
An amazing Impulse debut from Archie Shepp – easily one of his boldest musical statements ever, and a key announcement to the world that a new generation of modernists was on the rise! The album was co-produced by John Coltrane – who brought Shepp to the label, and almost gets out-done ... read more CD

Shinjuku MadnessShinjuku Madness ... CD
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99

Some of the most beautiful music we've heard in years from pianist Matthew Shipp – a set of tracks dedicated to Duke Ellington, and played in a very creative style! The tracks are mostly by Duke (there's a few Shipp originals in the mix too), but the performance is Matthew at his best – ... read more CD

Sonny Simmons & Moksha SamnyasinNomadic ... CD
Svart (Finland), 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
A really unusual setting for reedman Sonny Simmons – a set that's quite different than his spiritual avant classics, as it has him working with the rockish trio Moksha Samnyasin! Yet the sound is still quite spiritual, too – as the tracks are long, open, and extremely evocative – ... read more CD

Zoot SimsZoot Sims Avec Henri Renaud et Jon Eardley ... CD
Ducretet Thomson/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
Rare French material by Zoot Sims – recorded in Paris in 1956, and with a more stretched-out feel than some of his other Parisian sides of the 50s! The group's a hip quintet with Henri Renaud on piano, Jon Eardley on trumpet, and Charles Saudrais on drums – and the set swings with an ... read more CD

Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
Jazz from the heart of the cold war – not actually recorded in Moscow, but featuring a bunch of hip players on their return from a tour of the Soviet Union – a historic moment in which west met east, with some groovy jazz in the offing! Apart from the tenor of Zoot Sims and alto of ... read more CD

Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Herb Steward/Serge ChaloffFour Brothers Together Again ... CD
Vik/Sony (France), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
A set that's great in two different ways – first in that it revives the "four brothers" sound of four saxophonists at once, first forged in the Woody Herman band of the late 40s – and secondly, because the album's a further demonstration of the magical pairing of Al Cohn and ... read more CD

Hal SingerBlues & News (with bonus track) ... CD
Futura (France), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
The other great Hal Singer album from his years on the French scene – and a record that we'd say is even better than his legendary Paris Soul Food set! Although Singer is often most associated with an older style of swing-based jazz, he's working here in a loose, free mode that's got plenty ... read more CD

MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme!

Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin' ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
The title's a bit bluesy, and the record is too – one of the grittier collaborations between Hammond legend Jimmy Smith and ultra-hip arranger Oliver Nelson – who manages to make the whole thing come across with all the right soul styles in the end! There's definitely a nod to the ... read more CD

Jimmy SmithPortuguese Soul ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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. The approach is almost similar to Jack McDuff's complicated Blue Note ... read more CD
