Billy ButlerGuitar Soul ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Good+ ... $6.99
Prestige recouperates another great 50's R&B performer, and turns them into a monster 60's funky jazz artist. This time it's Billy Butler, best known for his funky guitar from all those Bill Dogget King sides, but now coming out into his own amidst a tight combo featuring Seldon Powell on sax ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
One of the hippest records that Henry Butler has cut in a long long time – and a set that really takes us back to the most inventive sounds he gave us during his first few years of recording! The album's a collaboration with trumpeter Steven Bernstein – who brings a lot of modern ... read more CD

Jaki ByardWith Strings ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good ... $11.99
A totally excellent album by Jaki Byard – and nothing like any other "with strings" album you've ever heard! Sure, the set does have some stringed instruments in the group – but it's a small combo session with bass, violin, guitar, and cello, not a large overly-orchestral ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ByarsMusic Of Duke Jordan ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
The music of Duke Jordan, but in a really fresh setting – handled here by altoist Chris Byars, who's brought together a compelling lineup for the set! Many of these tracks are numbers you'll either know as bop standards, or from Jordan's trio recordings – but the approach here is quite ... read more CD

Don ByasAmericans Swinging In Paris – Gloria ... CD
EMI (France), Late 40s. Used ... $4.99
It's no secret that Don Byas made some of his best recordings in Europe, not America – and this tasty little CD is great support of that fact! The set features a dozen numbers that Byas cut in Paris at the end of the 40s – working with a mixture of American and Parisian players that ... read more CD

Don ByasJazz Free & Easy (Regent) ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Very Good ... $36.99
Nice album that features some great swinging sides by tenorist Byas – a true giant in his own right, but a player who wasn't that often recorded in small group sides like these. The tracks have that nicely rough Savoy feel, with good room for Byas to solo, and a focus on strong straight ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label Regent pressing with deep groove – heavy, and nice and clean. Vinyl has a very short click on one cut, but overall is great – more VG+. Cover is nice too.)

Don ByasJazz In Paris – Laura ... CD
Universal (France), 1950/1951/1952. Used ... $4.99
Tenorist Don Byas is one of those players who always seemed to get more recognition in Europe than the US – or if that's not entirely the case, he at least got more chances to record properly than he ever did over here! This excellent 18 track CD features tunes from 3 early 50s sessions that ... read more CD

Billy ByersJazz Workshop (purple cover) ... LP
RCA, 1955. Very Good- ... $14.99
A wonderful entry in the Jazz Workshop series on RCA – and proof that the line of releases was definitely worth the promise of its title!

Columbia, 1964. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Charlie Byrd gets some top-shelf treatment here – in a wonderful album of tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, all recorded with full backing arrangements, and sound quality that's a lot better than some of Byrd's previous albums!
