Sonny SimmonsReincarnation ... CD
Arhoolie, 1991. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
An incredible performance from the legendary reedman Sonny Simmons – one that we'd rank right up there with his classics for ESP Records, and his other work on Arhoolie!

Zoot SimsZoot Sims In Paris ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $9.99
A rare gem from Zoot Sims – a slightly obscure session issued in the early 60s by United Artists! Producer Alan Douglas put together the record – and as with most of the Douglas-produced albums of the period, the set's got that little "something extra" that makes it stand ... read more CD

Zoot SimsZoot Sims Recorded Live At EJ's ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
Zoot Sims is one of those players who always seems to open up more in a live date than a studio session – and this great little album is key testament to that fact! The set was recorded live at EJ's in Atlanta in the early 80s, but it's got a sense of imagination and fire that are totally ... read more CD

Cees SlingerLive At The North Sea Jazz Festival ... CD
Limetree/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
A mighty nice set from pianist Cees Slinger – a live performance from a very hip octet – a group who can come on with ensemble fury one minute, then play like a small combo the next! Slinger's choice of musicians is wonderful – and includes Dusko Goykovich on trumpet, Fredinand ... read more CD

A Hammond organ double-header – two Verve classics from Jimmy Smith, back to back on a single CD! First up is Bashin – one of Jimmy Smith's biggest albums of the 60s – and a classic Verve pairing of his lean Hammond organ solos with the fuller, hard-swinging arrangements of ... read more CD

Sublime Hammond from Johnny Smith – a pair of early albums for Riverside, back to back on a single CD!

Lonnie Liston SmithAstral Traveling (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
One of Lonnie Liston Smith's most spiritual sessions, and the record that most clearly shows his roots with Pharoah Sanders! The vibe here is much more jazz-based than on some of Lonnie's other records for Flying Dutchman – with Smith playing as much acoustic piano as he does electric, using ... read more CD

Lonnie Liston SmithReflections Of A Golden Dream ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $11.99
Lonnie Liston Smith grooves it hard here with his Cosmic Echoes group – mixing in a stronger dose of soul than ever before, yet still giving tracks a righteous feel overall! The approach here is a bit like that of Roy Ayers work from the 70s – still jazzy at its core and conception, ... read more CD
Also available Reflections Of A Golden Dream ... LP 2.99

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesCosmic Funk ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99
A real gem from Lonnie Liston Smith's early years in the studio – and a record that's perhaps a bit more "cosmic" than it is "funk" – but that's why we like it so much! The session has Lonnie stretching out a bit more than usual – borrowing some of the ... read more CD
Also available Cosmic Funk ... LP 16.99

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesExpansions (UK pressing) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for ... read more CD

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesVisions Of A New World ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Lonnie Liston Smith is really tightening up his groove on this one – bringing a bit more funk into the mix, and creating that amazingly sweet glide in his keyboard sound! The record's still steeped in the righteous influences of years past, but it brings the message out to a bigger audience ... read more CD

The legendary Lonnie Smith returns to Blue Note Records – on a set that's his first record for the label in many decades, and maybe his greatest album in years! There's a great back-to-basics vibe to the set – one that has Lonnie mostly on Hammond B3, working in hip small groups – ... read more CD

Louis SmithHere Comes Louis Smith ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $9.99
Trumpeter Louis Smith made only two records for Blue Note, but both of them are great! This set's arguably his most famous – because of a rare uncredited appearance by Cannonball Adderley, working here under the "nom de date" of "Buckshot La Funke" – and blowing ... read more CD

Louis SmithSmithville ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
A really hard-edged set from trumpeter Louis Smith – one of his only two albums as a leader from the early years, and a heck of a great little album, thanks to tenor work by Charlie Rouse! Rouse is blowing beautifully here in one of his classic pre-Monk appearances – recorded at a time ... read more CD

Paris Smith/New Composers Ensemble53rd St Ghost ... CD
Oracle, 1996. New Copy ... $4.99
A killer batch of modern spiritual soul jazz – with a classic sound that reminds us a lot of the 70s work on labels like Tribe or Strata East!

Richard SmithInglewood ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $9.99
Guitarist Richard Smith works here in prime 80s fusion modes – getting help from a young Kenny G on soprano sax, and plenty of tight keyboards from Dan Siegel too! The style's got a bit more bite than later smooth jazz – and some of the tunes have a feel that's kind of like the ... read more CD

Wadada Leo SmithRed Chrysanthemums – Live 1977 ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1977. New Copy ... $11.99
An unreleased set of solo performances from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – one that we'd rank right up there with his most adventurous work of the 70s!
