A surprising jazz funk stunner from drummer Idris Muhammad – part of his great second chapter of work for CTI in the 70s! Idris is working here in a style that's very different than his heavy-footed funky work on Prestige and Blue Note – and while it's easy to criticize him for not ... read more CD

Idris MuhammadTurn This Mutha Out ... CD
Kudu/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A great late 70s chapter in the career of funky drummer Idris Muhammad – moving into very different territory here than his early soul jazz with Lou Donaldson, and even his earliest solo material too! David Matthews arranged the tracks, and he's given them a slick but soulful sound, with lots ... read more CD

Murder Inc (Irving Joseph)Murder Inc ... CD
Time/GAD (Poland), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
A very cool little record – one that imagines itself as a crime jazz soundtrack for a movie that doesn't exist – yet manages to come across with all the best styles of the time, with a quality to rival the best from Henry Mancini, Pete Rugolo, and Elmer Bernstein! Like famous scores by ... read more CD

David MurrayLondon Concert ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1978. New Copy 2CDs ... $16.99
A tremendous early recording from David Murray – recorded in London (as you'd guess by the title), but with all the best spirit of his early loft jazz sides! There's a tightness here that's missing from some of Murray's other albums of the period – a sense of soulful, spiritual swing ... read more CD

Sonny MurraySonny's Time Now (with bonus track) ... CD

An album that was years ahead of its time – and which still stands as one of the boldest statements from the New York jazz underground of the 60s! The revolutionary styles of the scene were documented by bigger labels like Impulse and Blue Note – but this obscure indie set goes even ... read more CD

Music CompanyRubber Soul Jazz ... CD
Mirwood/BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
One of the grooviest takes on The Beatles we've ever heard – served up by a hip group of LA players led by pianist Don Randi! The style here is very hard and percussive – more soulful and swinging than the original tunes on the Rubber Soul album, and often done with a tightly vamping ... read more CD

Vido MussoSwingin'st ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Hard-wailing tenor work from the great Vido Musso – a player who first got his start with Benny Goodman and Stan Kenton in the 40s, but who really broke out on his own in the 50s! The tracks on the set are from a variety of singles and album tracks that Vido cut for the Crown/Modern R&B ... read more CD

Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
A record that's got a lot more going on than you'd expect from the cat video innocence of its cover – hardly the kind of throwaway content you'd find online, and instead a rock-solid session of free jazz from this heavyweight Swedish group! The quartet boasts some of the fiercest trumpet we'v ... read more CD

Najponk/George Mraz/Matt FishwickFinal Touch Of Jazz ... CD
Animal, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 22.99
Pianist Najponk is a player with a pretty striking name – and a musician whose style really lives up to the short, sharp sound of that moniker too! The album's a tight trio session with a very old school vibe – recorded in Prague, where Najponk currently works – with backing ... read more CD

Roy Nathanson & FriendsNearness & You – Duets & Improvisations ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
The famous standard used for the title here might give some indication of the feel of the record – as it does feature some mellower, more laidback moments – but in true Roy Nathanson fashion, the initial performance of that song is followed by tracks titled "The Nearness Of ... read more CD

Native SonNative Son ... CD

JVC/Victor (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $26.99
The title's a bit obscure, but the album's a great American outing from the combo of Japanese pianist Takehiro Honda – one that has his Fender Rhodes and clavinet grooving nicely on a number of longish tracks!

Phineas NewbornFabulous Phineas ... CD
RCA (UK), 1958. New Copy ... $8.99
Phineas Newborn is certainly fabulous here – thanks in part to some great guitar work from his brother Calvin! The session's got a little extra "kick" than some of Phineas' other records from the time – a slightly rougher edge that comes from Calvin's raspy guitar work on ... read more CD

Phineas NewbornI Love A Piano ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
A compelling little record from pianist Phineas Newborn – and we don't just mean that because of it's bizarre image of "instrument love" on the cover! Newborn's got a touch on the piano that's unlike anyone else – kind of a key link between a number of different 50s modes ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

✨✧ David NewmanMr Fathead ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pretty sweet set from reedman David Newman – a record that has him working with larger instrumental backdrops, in a mode that's almost like the sound going on with Stanley Turrentine over at CTI! William S. Fischer handled all the arrangements – so although things are tight, there's ... read more CD
