Paul HornInside II ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $1.99 11.98
Paul Horn follows up his Inside The Taj Majal set – in someways leaving behind the stark, spare initimacy of that set for a more layered and tailored approach – and also leaving behind his more pronounced jazz roots for a more earthy and nature themed mode! Like Inside, it's a solo ... read more CD

Freddie HubbardBaddest Hubbard ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $3.99 12.98
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

Kang Tae HwanSolo Duo Trio ... CD
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1994. New Copy ... $15.99
There's a very earthy, organic finish to the alto saxophone shown in the hands of Kang Tae Hwan on the cover – and that appearance is a great illustration of the sound on the record, too – one that builds very slowly, with almost a meditative quality – as the tones are created ... read more CD

✨✧ Abdullah IbrahimDollar Brand – Recorded Live 1978 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Lovely solo work from Abdullah Ibrahim – a set recorded live, as a musical autobiography – and as such, filled with a much bigger range of styles than some of his other albums of the time!

Yoshio IkedaSketch Of My Life ... CD
King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $10.99
It could well be argued that in the 70s, the Japanese jazz scene was possibly the greatest place to be a bassist – as players like Yoshi Ikeda really had a chance to stretch out their sound, and try something new with records like this! The album's a really inventive little set – warm, ... read more CD

Inner EarReturn From The Center Of The Earth ... CD
Bocian (Poland), 2013. New Copy ... $7.99
An international group, but one recorded in Chicago on two different occasions – both excellent live performances that show the strengths of this all-star quartet! The excellent Mikolaj Trzaska is in the lead on saxes and bass clarinet – an incredible reedman who's rising to the ... read more CD

Takeshi Inomata & Sound LimitedInnocent Canon ... CD
King (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
Nothing innocent about this record – because the groove is hard and heavy, wild and trippy – a really heady brew of funky jazz and more psychedelic influences – all recorded with some weird sounds in the background too! The album's a great one from Japanese groove pioneer Takeshi ... read more CD

Albore Jazz (Japan), 2010. New Copy ... $14.99

✨✧ Shun IshiwakaCleanup (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $26.99
A great little record with an angular, soulful flow – and a sense of direction that's way more confident than you'd guess from the mixed-up look on Shun Ishikawa's face on the cover! Shun's a drummer, and he leads a group here that's full of dynamic energy – excellent work on tenor and ... read more CD

Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLuciaFlamenco Jazz ... CD

Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Illinois Jacquet was one of those players who never stopped going as the decades moved on – a tenorist who started in the bigger jumping bands of the swing generation, but one who was able to grow and shift over the years, and continue to hone his craft! This late date from Switzerland shows ... read more CD
