George OtsukaPage 1 (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Takt/Sony (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $24.99
The start of a great run from the trio of Japanese drummer George Otsuka – a player who really brings an imaginative style to the piano trio mode! Otsuka's got a way of stretching out while also swinging – a bit more conventional here than on later records, but still already quite ... read more CD

George OtsukaPage 2 (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Takt (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $24.99
Freewheeling work from Japanese drummer George Otsuka – leading a trio here with pianist Hideo Ichikawa, a really great player who works with some of the soul jazz touches of American players of the 60s, but who also opens up with a more loosely expressive mode that points the way towards ... read more CD

Takt/Sony (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $24.99
Page three in the early chapter of drummer George Otsuka – and a record that has him stretching out even more than before!

George OtsukaSea Breeze (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Union/Think (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
Part of a great move forward for Japanese drummer George Otsuka in the 70s – a player who'd really made some great waves with his trio material at the end of the 60s, but who found a way deepen his groove with a larger group on records like this – really standing out as one of the most ... read more CD

PalmeiraPalmeira (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1983. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful Brazilian jazz from the European scene – done in a warm blend of acoustic modes that's totally great! The set's got a bit less fusion focus than some of its contemporaries – as Palmeira's instrumentation is heavy on percussion and acoustic guitar – all tied together ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

Jason PalmerWondaland – Jason Palmer Plays Janelle Monae ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
The music of Janelle Monae gets some really wonderful treatment here – served up in an instrumental mode by trumpeter Jason Palmer – with a similar spirit to his previous project based around the music of Minnie Riperton! The approach is definitely jazz, but it's wonderful to hear ... read more CD

Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $16.99
A smoking set of all-star performances – recorded at Carnegie Hall in 1954, and with a sense of tremendous talent that may well blow away some of the Jazz At The Philharmonic sets of the time! The material here is heavy on Count Basie performances – excellent material from that period ... read more CD

Evan ParkerSnake Decides ... CD
Incus/PSI (UK), 1986. New Copy ... $11.99
An insanely wonderful piece of work from saxophonist Evan Parker – and maybe the record that will really have you deciding that Parker's a genius! The set is all solo soprano sax, recorded live in St Paul's church in Oxford – which creates this really rich sense of sound – but ... read more CD

Really amazing sounds from this heady trio of improvisers – the legendary Evan Parker on tenor and soprano sax, plus Joe Morris on guitar and Nate Wooley on trumpet!

A really unusual project from bassist William Parker – a great tribute to the legendary Godard film Alphaville, done with music that's a surprisingly great fit!

William Parker/Lisa Sokolov/Cooper-MooreStan's Hat Flapping In The Wind ... CD
Centering, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Really beautiful work from bassist William Parker – a set of tracks that are every bit as righteous as some of his other albums, but in a completely different way!

William Parker/Raining On The MoonGreat Spirit ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Some of the most soulful music we've ever heard from bassist William Parker – a set that puts his mighty instrument to use at the core of a sextet who move with a sound that's perhaps a bit more straight ahead than some of Parker's usual music – but no less spiritual at all! The group's ... read more CD

Horace ParlanJoe Meets The Rhythm Section ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99
The "Joe" here is Dutch tenorist Joe Van Enkhuizen, who's a great fit with a trio that features Horace Parlan on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Al Harewood on drums! The album's got that subtle approach that marks Parlan's later years – a less all-out style than his start on Blue ... read more CD

Party Knullers (Fred Lonberg-Holm & Stale Solberg)Gold ... CD
Hispid (Norway), 2014. New Copy ... $8.99
Fred Lonberg Holm and Stale Liavik Solberg put a new twist on the meaning of "party" here – as they work in an especially dark side of the sonic spectrum than you might expect at a more festive celebration! Fred's using a fair bit of electronics on the record, but the set's also ... read more CD

Saturn/Art Yard (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the rarest albums ever issued by Sun Ra's Saturn Records label – and one of the few dates to ever feature baritone saxophonist Pat Patrick as a leader – Sun Ra's longtime partner in the Arkestra, and a hell of a player on his own! The record is a heavy baritone date – with ... read more CD
