Jackie McLeanOne Step Beyond (with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $9.99
An amazing album – simply groundbreaking, and a key turn for Jackie McLean! The record features a group of hip young players – including a very young Tony Williams, plus Grachan Moncur III, Bobby Hutcherson, and Eddie Kahn – all playing in a spare contemplative modernist mode ... read more CD

Jackie McLeanSwing Swang Swingin' ... CD
Blue Note, 1959. Used ... $9.99
Jackie McLean cut some of his best bop sessions for Blue Note – and this is one of them! The record is amazingly precise, and features Jackie as the sole horn soloist in a group with Walter Bishop on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – a crack rhythm combo that ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jackie McLeanTippin' The Scales (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet little quartet from Jackie McLean – a later entry into his bop-level sets for Blue Note, recorded right before his "new thing" years! The album never got a proper release back in the 60s, and only first saw the light of day two decades later – but it's a real cooker ... read more CD

✨✧ Jackie McLean & John JenkinsAlto Madness ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... $18.99
A rough little killer from Jackie McLean – less well-formed than some of his Blue Note sides, but in a way that really gives him a great soulful edge! There's an open-blowing quality to the record, one that's almost a blowing session, but a bit tighter overall – a hint of the energy ... read more CD

Marian McPartlandBossa Nova + Soul ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the most unique albums ever cut by pianist Marian McPartland – and definitely a set that offers up the bossa and soul promised in the title! Marian's playing electric and acoustic, over some very groovy rhythms from the trio of Ben Tucker on bass, Dave Bailey on drums, and Ralph ... read more CD

Marian McPartlandMarian McPartland Plays Music Of Leonard Bernstein (aka West Side Story) ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
Marian McPartland in one of her grooviest settings – a very soulful trio with Ben Tucker on bass and Jake Hanna on drums – in an outing that really transforms the sound of the tunes from West Side Story and other Leonard Bernstein compositions! The whole thing actually feels more like ... read more CD

Joe McPheeLoneliest Woman ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1981. New Copy ... $7.99
A previously-unissued performance from Joe McPhee – recorded in the early 80s, and a searing ensemble take on Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman"! The arrangements are beautiful – as the track retains some of the haunting melody of the original composition, yet has a loose, ... read more CD

Hat Hut/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful set of live improvisations from reedman Joe McPhee – recorded early in his time with the Hat Hut label – at a concert in Willisau, Switzerland – already showing Joe's strong relationship with the European scene! The tracks here are all long, and every bit as creative ... read more CD

Charles McPhersonHorizons ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1968. Used ... $18.99
A wonderfully warm, deeply creative session from Charles McPherson – a set that moves way past his boppish roots, into a new zone of lyricism and imagination! Cedar Walton's on piano, and he adds some extremely important touches to the record – those lyrical, almost modal lines that ... read more CD

Charles McPhersonLive At The Five Spot (Quintet/Live plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige/ZYX (Germany), 1966. Used ... $12.99
A great set of soul jazz from McPherson – recorded live, with a rolling groove that's in the Blue Note mode of the mid 60s – but even more open overall! The group's got a lot of hometown talent from McPherson's native Detroit – including Barry Harris on piano, Lonnie Hillyer on ... read more CD

Charles McPhersonToday's Man ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great document of the more soulful shift made by Charles McPherson in the 70s – and an album that features his moody alto work set amidst a slightly larger group – filled with great players that include Chris Woods on flute, Richard Williams and Cecil Bridewater on trumpet, Frank Wess ... read more CD

Carmen McRaeAlfie ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Dionne Warwick may have made the title track a hit, but the tune stands as a great start for this classic 60s album from Carmen McRae – one of those superb gems from a time when the singer was really finding herself – and hitting this mature territory that gave her what she fully ...

Carmen McRaeBirds Of A Feather (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve, 1958. Used ... $12.99
A gimmicky album – but a nice one! Carmen sings a set of "bird-related" songs – like "Skylark", "Bob White", "Flamingo", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and "Baltimore Oriole" – and while the idea of such a record might be painful, ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Carmen McRaeCarmen McRae (Mainstream) ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
The cover's got a 70s look, but the material here is from that great mid-60s moment when the talents of Carmen McRae were really coming alive – and producer Bob Shad was on hand to capture all the magic in all of its glory! The Carmen heard here is completely different than the singer of the ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Carmen McRaeHaven't We Met? ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Great work from Carmen McRae – light and groovy one minute, deeply expressive the other – but all with a sense of balance that few other singers can touch at this point in her career! Carmen's already moved past straight jazz, yet she also avoids the traps of bigger label commercial ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Carmen McRaeLive & Doin' It ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
About as strong an example of the genius of Carmen McRae as you could ever hope to find – a live album that displays Carmen's impeccable phrasing in a very stripped-down setting – and one that also swings with a fair degree of sophisticated soul as well! Back in the 50s, Carmen paved ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Carmen McRaeLive & Wailing ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Wailing live material from the great Carme McRae – material recorded at the same sessions that yielded the Village Gate album from the same time – and equally great! There's a loose, soulful swing here – different from both the poise of Carmen's earliest records, and the fuller ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD
