Soule MondeMust Be Nice ... CD
Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
A tight little duo who don't seem to need anyone else – given the tremendous power of their work on drums and Hammond B-3! These guys are funky jazz at the core, but also open to lots more ideas too – and really blow us away with their work here, which seems to include no other ... (Deep Funk, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Sounds Of A&RLet's Stay Forever ... CD
Trippin' N' Rhythm, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The first we've heard from the Sounds Of A&R – and we're guessing the start of a great legacy in years to come! A is April May – whose lovely vocals are intertwined with the trumpet lines of R – Russell Haywood, whose musical component on the album is maybe even more center ... (Neo Soul, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Melvin SparksTexas Twister/Melvin Sparks '75 ... CD
Eastbound/BGP (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Wicked work from the legendary Melvin Sparks – 2 of his rare post-Prestige sides for the short-lived Eastbound jazz label! Texas Twister is one of Melvin's funkiest albums ever – done in a style that's even harder and rawer than his work for Prestige! The sound is lean and often a bit ... read more CD

James SpauldingSongs Of Courage ... CD
Muse, 1991. New Copy ... $4.99
Great work from James Spaulding – one of the few players of his generation who actually got better with age! As he was in his classic 60s Blue Note recording sessions with other leaders, Spaulding is a hell of a group player – extremely sensitive to the other members of his groups ... read more CD

Spontaneous Music EnsembleChallenge 1966 to 1967 ... CD
Eyemark/Emanem (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Amazing free jazz from the British scene of the mid 60s – some of the earliest rumblings of genius from the Spontaneous Music Ensemble – already working here at a level that matches the avant energy happening both in the US and on the larger European scene! Core interplay here comes ... read more CD

✨✧ Spontaneous Music EnsembleKaryobin – Are The Imaginary Birds Said To Live In Paradise (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Island/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the first albums ever from this legendary British creative force in jazz – heard here at a time when the group was a quintet – with the mighty drummer John Stevens at the lead – alongside mindblowingly fresh performances from Evan Parker on soprano sax, Kenny Wheeler on ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing! Beautiful package – a tiny LP sleeve replica of the original Island cover and label!)

Sr LangostaEl Experimento Caribeno ... CD
Sr Langosta, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
A Caribbean experiment, but one that's more funky than anything else – served up here in a swirling blend of guitar, bass, keyboards, and horns – all with lots of very groovy touches around the edges! The front cover might make these guys look like a jamband, or one of those less-than-g ... (Deep Funk, Jazz) read more CD

Betty St ClaireWhat Is There To Say ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever cut by jazz singer Betty St Clair – a vocalist who got her start working in the Dizzy Gillespie band at the end of the 40s – but who's clearly a different sort of artist off here on her own! Betty's not really bop or big band-oriented – and instead, she' ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Tomasz StankoJazz Message From Poland ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
A jazz message from Poland, and one that's served up loud and proud, too – thanks to tremendous work from trumpeter Tomasz Stanko and a very sharp-edged group! The music here has that open flow that some of the more fusion-based players were exploring in Poland at the time – but the ... read more CD
Also available Jazz Message From Poland ... LP 18.99

✨✧ Tomasz Stanko & Adam MakowiczTomasz Stanko & Adam Makowicz Unit Featuring Czeslaw Bartkowski ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic electric session from the 70s Polish scene – a record that not only features freewheeling trumpet from Tomasz Stanko, and sweet Fender Rhodes from Adam Mackowicz, but also includes some very inventive work on drums and percussion from the great Czelaw Bartkowski! All three ... read more CD

✨✧ Tomasz Stanko New York QuartetDecember Avenue ... CD
ECM, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A really great setting for trumpeter Tomasz Stanko – working here with his New York Quartet, a group who seem to bring out the warmer side of his style! Stanko's been making records for years – and working on ECM for a good amount of time – but his more recent efforts are ... read more CD

Lou Stein8 For Kicks 4 For Laughs ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $9.99
A unique little record – with some surprisingly nice touches! At some level, the record's got the feel of some of the east coast chamber jazz sets of the time – particularly those on Bethelehm and RCA – but at another level, there's a much more playful feel here, one that breaks ... read more CD

Matthew StevensPreverbal ... CD
Crystal M+th/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Guitarist Matthew Stevens works here in a style we might call post-fusion – as it's got all the electric energy of the genre in the 70s – but also opens up in so many different sonic and textural possibilities! The album really blurs the line between individual performance and larger ... read more CD

Sonny Stitt37 Minutes & 48 Seconds ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $9.99
The title might sound a bit clinical, but the music within is anything but – and instead is that sort of special, magical work that always makes Sonny Stitt a real cut above most of his contemporaries! The notes try to link Stitt to Charlie Parker – but apart from a postwar sense of ... read more CD

Sonny StittBroadway Soul ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A lost Sonny Stitt session from the 60s – but wonderfully swinging, and with a groove that really works well! The album's a set of Broadway tunes played jazz-wise – but in the hands of Stitt, they come up wonderfully – stretching out with soulful intensity that's mighty nice, ... read more CD

Sonny StittDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Back To My Own Home Town ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1979. New Copy ... $7.99
A late life session from Sonny Stitt – and a great one, too – as the set's got the saxophone giant really opening up in the relaxed, easygoing space of the Black & Blue label studio – which allows Sonny to hit the soulful vibe of his classic recordings on Roost and Verve! The ... read more CD

Sonny StittSaxophones Of Sonny Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
Magical Stitt work on Roost – an album of marked understatement, from the simple title, standard cover, and lack of session details on the back – all of which might make you think "oh yeah, heard this one before." But one drop of the needle opens the album up immediately ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Sonny StittSonny Side Of Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $9.99
Sublime work from Stitt! The record has a subtle genius that's impossible to describe with words – as Stitt's tone and economy on the album's solos are the pure stuff that you only find after panning through an endless stream of post-bop LPs by players of his generation. The album's ... read more CD

Sonny StittSonny Stitt Plays ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $9.99
One of Sonny Stitt's amazing albums for Roost – a record with a beautifully mature conception of bop soloing, and a totally confident tone throughout! There's an understated brilliance here that's nearly impossible to describe in words – a sense of placement, timing, and phrasing that's ... read more CD

Sonny StittStitt Goes Latin ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
Sonny Stitt goes Latin – and the results are tremendous! The set's still got all the soulful feel of the best Stitt sessions for Roost, but it brings in some nice Latin rhythms too – inflecting things with that blend of soul jazz and congas you might find over at Prestige or Blue Note, ... read more CD
