Major HolleyDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Excuse Me Ludwig ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1977. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Major Holley's a hell of a bassist – one who's soulful sound is probably best-remembered behind organist Shirley Scott in the early 60s, and a player who really does a great job of bringing older modes forward with fresh twists in later generations too! This mid 70s session is an overlooked ... read more CD

Richard Groove HolmesDancing In the Sun ... CD
Versatile/Essential, 1977. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
Groove Holmes is definitely dancing in the sun here – working with full arrangements from Mario Sprouse, in a sweetly soulful style that's not unlike Johnny Hammond at the time! Groove still plays Hammond on most numbers – but also a bit of mini Korg too – and although the ... read more CD

✨✧ Shirley HornShirley Horn Live At The Four Queens ... CD
Resonance, 1988. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Unissued live work from the great Shirley Horn – recorded in Las Vegas right before her big comeback recordings of the 90s – at a time when Shirley was hardly getting a chance to make an album! That lack of attention hardly matters to Horn, though – as she faces this performance ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Toninho HortaToninho Horta ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
One of our favorite records ever from Toninho Horta – a set that's got an airy brilliance that goes beyond most of his other albums! The sound here is amazing – kind of a jazzy extension of territory explored by Milton Nascimento a few years before – served up with a warmly ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

Joe HoustonJoe Houston Blows Crazy – Classic Tracks From The Wild Man Of The Tenor Sax ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer work from the great Joe Houston – one of our favorite R&B tenor saxophonists of the 50s, and one of the most hard-blowing too! Joe's got roots in Texas, but cut plenty of great work on the LA scene of the decade – really pushing his roots into hard-swinging, fast-romping ... read more CD

Joe HoustonRockin' At The Drive In ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Classic 50s tenor work from the mighty Joe Houston – west coast tenor star galore, and one of the strongest players to cross the line between jazz and R&B! The set features Joe blowing in a relatively uncomplicated mode overall – hitting some nice upbeat groovers, but also chilling ... read more CD

Freddie HubbardBaddest Hubbard ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Baddest Hubbard or goodest Hubbard – whatever you prefer, the set's a great sampling of Freddie's incredible work for the CTI label during the early 70s! The album only features 4 tracks, but for CTI, Freddie was cutting them so long, that's the only way you could go – as his ... read more CD

Freddie HubbardHub Of Hubbard ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
A classic European date from Freddie Hubbard – recorded right around the vintage of his Red Clay years, but with a sound that hearkens back more towards his Blue Note sessions of the mid 60s! There's a nicely angular feel to this set – that bold, modern quality that really set Hubbard ... read more CD
(Great LP sleeve edition – new remastering, new notes, and even a picture of the original master tape!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Freddie HubbardKeep Your Soul Together ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Freddie Hubbard at the peak of his 70s powers – and one of his finest albums of the decade! The record follows strongly in the tone that Freddie set at CTI on his mighty Red Clay and Sky Dive sets – long, drawn out tracks – done with lots of electricity in the rhythms, and a very ... read more CD
(Blu-Spec CD pressing!)

Freddie HubbardPolar AC ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Warm and wonderful work from Freddie Hubbard – a killer of an album recorded for CTI, and one of his most soulful efforts for the label! The album's got a bit more of a human heart than some of the more cosmic sessions Freddie cut at the time – a bit more contemplative and ... read more CD

Also available Polar AC (Japanese pressing) ... CD 9.99

Freddie HubbardSky Dive ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer set from Freddie Hubbard's legendary years on CTI! Like the classic Red Clay album, there's 4 tunes here, all longer cuts – where everyone gets a chance to stretch out a bit, over smooth (but not too smooth!) electric grooves, supported by great orchestrations from Don Sebesky! Ron ... read more CD

Bobbi HumphreyDig This! ... CD
Blue Note/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 13.99
A stone killer from funky flute player Bobbi Humphrey – one of her early albums for Blue Note Records, and a set that's a perfect summation of the best sides of her talents! The album's got a slightly different feel than Bobbi's work with Larry Mizell – yet still sports a similar ... read more CD

Stan Hunter & Sonny FortuneTrip On The Strip ... CD
Prestige/Dusty Groove, 1966. New Copy ... $5.99 12.98
A rare gem on 60s Prestige Records – and one of the earliest records to feature the incredible talents of reedman Sonny Fortune! Sonny burst into fame in the 70s as a spiritual player with a really freewheeling groove – but this late 60s date has Fortune in the company of Hammond ... read more CD

Harumi IbeTantei Jimusho 23 Kutabare Akutodomo ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $28.99
Think the French new wave had a lock on jazz soundtracks? Think again, because the Japanese scene of the 60s was full of them – including this sublime set from 1963! Most numbers here are jazz tracks played by a great small combo – one that's got tremendous energy all the way through! ... (Soundtracks, Jazz) read more CD

Hideo Ichikawa TrioTomorrow (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $26.99
Hideo Ichikawa may have been one of the most inventive pianists to record for the Three Blind Mice label in the 70s – an artist whose talents are expansive both on the acoustic and electric versions of the instrument he uses here – and which also extend to a few contributions on ... read more CD

Masaru ImadaOne For Duke (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $26.99
The album's dedicated to Duke Ellington, and it features Duke Ellington tunes – but overall the set is a very personal moment from pianist Masaru Imada – maybe one of his strongest dates of the 70s! The music opens up with that beautifully creative Japanese piano trio approach of the ... read more CD

Infinite Spirit MusicLive Without Fear (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Ancient Afrika/Shout (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
Beautifully spiritual work from this obscure Chicago group from the late 70s – an AACM ensemble, and quite possibly one of the most soulful we've ever heard! There's a really spare, earthy approach to the work here – one that uses percussion, piano, and saxes from Light Henry Huff ... read more CD

Takeshi Inomata & Sound LimitedSounds Of Sound Limited (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
A killer funky group from early 70s Japan – a slightly large ensemble, but one with some really heavy drums at the bottom – plus some great use of organ and electric guitar! There's a tight brace of horns at the top – flute, tenor, trumpets, and trombone – but the rhythms ... read more CD

Takeshi Inomata & Sound LtdNew Rock In Europe (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Express/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $26.99
Not European rock, but funky jazz instead – served up by a very cool Japanese group with a lot of funky undercurrents! The approach here is similar to some of the other Sound Ltd albums from Takeshi Inomata – a reworking of an older big band mode, with more electric and groovy elements ... read more CD
