Return To ForeverMusic Magic ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
Lots of musical magic here – a further extension of the Return To Forever vibe that helped Chick Corea find some of his best energy of the 70s! The style is still as tightly focused as before, but also opens up with a bit more soul, too – trading some slight moments of jamming for a ... read more CD

Jorge ReyesDe Todo Un Poco ... CD
Yemaya (Spain), 2004. New Copy ... $9.99
A damn great bassist from the contemporary Cuban scene – and one who can serve up an old school Latin jazz session that takes us back to the glory days of the descarga generation! Reyes' bass is right out front – in a role that's as melodic as it is rhythmic – and the rest of the ... (Latin, Jazz) read more CD

Emil RichardsJourney To Bliss ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic bit of "Eastern" tinged jazz – and a real musical Journey To Bliss on its own! Vibist Emil Richards has always been totally groovy in our book – but he really outdoes himself here – working in an exotic mode that features lots of weird percussion over choppy ... read more CD

Mike Richmond Cello QuartetPendulum ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99

Nelson RiddleNat – An Orchestral Portrait Of Nat King Cole ... CD
Reprise/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $16.99
A great tribute to Nat King Cole by Nelson Riddle – the arranger whose 50s work with the singer helped break Cole out of the trio format and into pop charts! As with all of Riddle's work, the music here is never straight pop – nor is it sleepy easy listening – because there's a ... (Now Sound, Jazz) read more CD

Max RoachAward Winning Drummer (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Time (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $16.99
An obscure set from Max Roach – but right up there with his best work of the late 50s on Mercury and other labels! The album features the "award winning" drummer in a quintet with Booker Little on trumpet, Ray Draper on tuba, George Coleman on tenor, and Art Davis on bass – a ... read more CD
Also available Award Winning Drummer ... LP 9.99

Max RoachFeaturing The Legendary Hasaan ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99
A very unusual album from Max Roach – and one that continues his great 50s trend of seeking out some of the freshest players in jazz! The set's a rare trio outing for Max – and it features some incredible piano work by a musician named Hasaan – a player we only know from this set ... read more CD

Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSpirit Within ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Really beautiful work from the team of Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – hardly the sort of stuff we might have heard from the players a decade or two before – and a sophisticated batch of tunes that has them stretching out in rich musical directions! There's little of the boppish roots of ... read more CD
Also available Spirit Within ... LP 2.99

Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1983. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A tremendous live performance from the group co-led by Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – two players who really bring a lot to each other's music!

Puccio RoelensMusica Per Commenti Sonori ... CD
Costanza/Schema (Italy), 1979. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
A sound library album from the end of the 70s, but one that's got a fair bit of funky jazz in the mix, too – thanks to a lifetime dedication to the music by Amleto "Puccio" Roelens! Roelens was a musician with a long lineage on the Italian scene in the postwar years – and ... (Sound Library, Jazz) read more CD

Sonny Rollins & Coleman HawkinsTogether At Newport (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $22.99
Don't mix this one up with the RCA album that featured Sonny Rollins and Coleman Hawkins – because this is a different live performance from Newport, stellar work from Rollins – captured here at a key early 60s modernist moment – with a group that features Paul Bley on piano, ... read more CD

Sonny Rollins/Horace SilverSwiss Radio Days Vol 40 – Zurich 1959 ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
The cover's a bit misleading – in that Sonny Rollins and Horace Silver don't actually play together on the album – but the set does include some killer live material from both artists, recorded with key groups in their career! Rollins kicks off the set with stunning trio sounds from ... read more CD

A pair of amazing records from percussionist Dom Um Romao – back to back in a single set!

The best in years from trumpeter Wallace Roney – leading a heck of an amazing group, too – including Gary Bartz and Patrice Rushen! As a leader and soloist, Roney's never been at a loss for creative play, but he's really stepped it up in the way he balances scorching, energetic ... read more CD

Signature/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $14.99

Rudy RoystonRise Of Origin ... CD
Greenleaf, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
Rudy Royston's fast becoming a player to watch – a hell of a drummer when he works in other people's groups, and a growing leader with a bold, fresh vision in jazz! This set's a killer – a non-stop flurry of fantastic, inventive sounds from a trio headed by Royston on drums, with ... read more CD

Time/Solid (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $16.99
An excellent crime soundtrack! Pete Rugolo's best known as the arranger who made Stan Kenton, The Four Freshmen, and June Christy sound so great in the 50s – but in later work, he did some incredible jazz soundtracks, as you'll hear on this batch of work for the TV show thriller. Tunes are ... (Soundtracks, Jazz) read more CD

RuptureIsrael Suite/Dominante En Bleu ... CD
Sommor (France), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
An incredible record from the French scene of the 70s – both sides very different, but equally wonderful! "Israel Suite" is a freewheeling, side-long track with wonderful energy – a sound that hangs somewhere between spiritual jazz and freer moments – especially the ... read more CD
