Marge (France), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A late 70s Parisian performance from the great Sunny Murray – and one that rivals any of the drummer's other French records from the decade – thanks in part to a lineup that also includes Bobby Few on piano and Alan Silva on bass!

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 ... $8.99 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!

ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
One of the most beautiful albums we've ever heard from guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel – a set that opens up in so many tones and colors, thanks to help from a great group that features Ambrose Akimusire on trumpet and Brad Mehldau on piano! Both of these musicians really help underscore the ... read more CD

Nacka Forum (Kajfes/Kullhammar/Berthling/Osgood)We Are The World ... 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

Roy Nathanson & FriendsNearness & You – Duets & Improvisations ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Michael NauraCall ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $14.99
A stunner of a Fender Rhodes album – one of a few rare sides cut by pianist Michael Naura – and a lost MPS session that's one of the label's best from the 70s! The group's a quartet, with a very open, fluid sound – and it mixes Naura's Rhodes with the vibes of Wolfgang Schluter ... read more CD

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 ... $9.99
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!)

Phineas NewbornPiano Portraits ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
Evocative piano portraits from Phineas Newborn – played in an illustrative style that's mighty nice! Newborn's got a touch on the keys that's like few other players we can think of – rich and full, yet without being too flowery or sentimental – a really nice balance that stands ... read more CD

Joe Newman/Zoot SimsLocking Horns ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
We're not sure we've ever heard trumpeter Joe Newman and tenorist Zoot Sims work together on a record – and certainly never as striking a setting as this – a record that really gives both musicians a chance to open up and blow! Despite the title, the players are less "locking ... read more CD

Nimbus CollectiveLive In Lotus Land ... CD
Nimbus, 1987. New Copy 2CDs ... $7.99
A lost session of spiritual jazz – recorded in LA in the latter half of the 80s, but with a soaring, righteous vibe that's right up there with the 70s scene! The group here is incredible – an all-star array of the best talents working for Nimbus Records – Nate Morgan on piano, ... read more CD

Nineteenth WholeSmilin' ... CD
Eastbound/Westbound (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $5.99 14.99
One of the sweetest little jazz funk albums of the early 70s – and a masterful blend of vibes, guitar, and organ from this legendary Indianapolis combo! The group are probably best known for their backing work behind Grant Green on some of his funky Blue Note sides – or for vibes ... read more CD
(Comes in a great little cardboard LP-styled sleeve!)

MPS (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the earliest records by the legendary Novi Singers – and a rare MPS set that exposed the group to a larger European audience!

Adam O'FarrillStranger Days ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 16.98
Trumpeter Adam O'Farrill's debut as a leader, and it's a strong one! Adam is the son of Cuban jazz piano great Arturo O'Farrill, but on Stranger Days, he's pretty firmly establishing his own identity in contemporary post-bop – keeping up the family tradition as a top notch player, rather than ... read more CD

Village (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $29.99

Yuji OhnoProof Of The Man (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
Sweet funky sounds from Japanese keyboardist/arranger Yuji Ohno – one of his lesser-known film scores from the 70s, but also one of his best! The record's got a bit of a cop/crime vibe overall – with lots of warm electric touches, of the sort you might find on an American thriller of ... read more CD

Shingo OkudairaThis Is New ... CD
Pit Inn (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $29.99
Shingo Okudaira might look a bit understated on the cover, but he's a hell of a drummer and a great leader too – one who seems to inherit almost an Art Blakey-like role in his leadership of the Force Quartet! The group's an already-crackling unit – with some especially strong piano ... read more CD

Sy OliverDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Yes Indeed ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Trumpeter Sy Oliver was a big talent in the swing generation – where his sharpness and focus almost paved the way for later leaders and arrangers like Quincy Jones or Neal Hefti – and here, he brings that old school mode into sharper focus in a smaller ensemble – working with a ... read more CD
