SiriusAcoustic Main Suite – Plus The Inner One ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
A record as enigmatic as its title – slow-building sounds crafted by the trumpet of Yaw Tembe and percussion of Monseiur Trinite – both musicians we don't know at all, but who really find a special space with this album! The sound is very open and spacious – much more in an ECM ... read more CD

Derek SmithToasting Derek Smith At The Piano ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $9.99
Derek Smith is a British player that we mostly know for his work on the piano – but here, despite the title, the man also handles a bit of organ, harpsichord, and celeste – all in a groovy small combo setting that's quite a change from his other albums of the period! The non-piano ... read more CD

Floyd SmithDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Relaxin With Floyd ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Hardly a set that's got the "relaxin" energy that you'd guess from the title – as Floyd Smith is a guitarist with a nice sort of bite in his style, and works here in a lean organ trio that gives him plenty of room to open up his sound! Floyd's got a bold way of handling a single ... read more CD

✨✧ Johnny SmithGuitar & Strings ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $14.99
A very special album from Johnny Smith – one of the few to feature his sublime guitar sound amidst a larger string setting – which only seems to emphasize the moodier, darker tones of his instrument! The album's a lot like his My Dear Little Sweetheart set – and, like that one, ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Johnny SmithJohnny Smith Plus The Trio ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $9.99
A trio is helping out guitarist Johnny Smith – but, as with all of his other Roost Records of the time, the man himself is very far out in the lead – making real magic on the strings of his guitar, and playing with an effortless command of tone and color! Some moments of the record ... read more CD

✨✧ Lonnie Liston SmithExotic Mysteries ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the fullest-sounding albums ever cut by Lonnie Liston Smith – but one of the greatest albums too! The set has Smith really taking off a bit more than on his work for RCA or Flying Dutchman – hitting some fuller sounds in the studio, thanks to backings arranged by Berg DeCoteaux, ... read more CD

Lonnie Liston SmithLove Is The Answer ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Magical work from Lonnie Liston Smith – one of those players who actually seemed to get better the more he worked on major labels! The album's a really wonderful blend of mellow jazz and soulfully spiritual themes – at one level inspired by Roy Ayers-styled crossover material, but at ... read more CD

✨✧ Lonnie Liston SmithSong For The Children ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderfully warm work from the late 70s years of Lonnie Liston Smith – material from his key stretch a Columbia Records, a time when he'd really learned to tighten up his groove a bit from earlier years, yet still keep all the deeper soul intact! The production here is slightly polished, but ... read more CD

Lonnie Smith & Alvin QueenDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Lenox & Seventh ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1985. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
A great lost chapter in the career of organist Lonnie Smith – a session recorded in the 80s, but done with the simple straightforward soul jazz groove of earlier sides on Muse and Prestige! Lonnie's working here in a loose and free trio format – with Melvin Sparks on guitar and the ... read more CD

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithNajwa ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Wadada Leo Smith is really on fire here – on a record that feels a lot more like something from the early 80s underground than some of his earlier work – from the lineup of performers, right down to the overall sound of the set! The group's very heavy on guitars – and features ... 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! Smith comes across wonderfully on the record – full of soul and imagination, and easily as impressive on his solo instruments as ... read more CD

Exclusive/Sackville, 1967. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98

A great collection of jazz-based soundtrack work from French modernist Martial Solal – served up here in a nicely expanded CD set! First up is Solal's score for A Bout De Souffle – a film best known as Breathless around the world, and an early movie by Jean Luc Godard that perhaps gave ... read more CD

Steeplechase (Denmark), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Pianist Mark Soskin has played on dozens of records over the decades, yet has given us just a handful as a leader – which is quite a shame, as his work on an album like this is totally great! The pianist has this warmth and flow right from the start – the kind of understated ... read more CD
